Let the debate begin

February 4, 2009

The Pittsburgh Steelers knocked off the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII on February 1 in dramatic fashion, with Ben Roethlisberger finding Santonio Holmes in the back right corner of the end zone in the final minute.

The win was Pittsburgh’s second title in the last four years, and the sixth in franchise history.

Around the country, there has been some consideration that this year’s Super Bowl was the best ever, and that the Steelers are now in the discussion when it comes to the best team of this decade. Patriots fans, we think, may disagree on both topics. Haven’t the Patriots been involved in some pretty incredible Super Bowls? And don’t they have a trio of Lombardi Trophys since this decade began?

We want to hear from you. Post a comment right here on the Patriots Today blog and your voice may be heard in an upcoming edition of the show.

Thanks for your input…let’s get the debate started!


Heading back to NE

December 28, 2008

The Patriots are boarding their plane to head back to Providence, and between now and their arrival at Gillette Stadium, they will find out whether they’ll be playing in the month of January.

After the game, several players and coach Bill Belichick reflected on the accomplishment this team made by going 11-5, regardless of how the rest of this evening plays out. As of right now, the Ravens are beating the Jaguars and the Dolphins lead the Jets – the Pats need at least one of those outcomes to be reversed in order to reach the postseason.

It was a bizarre afternoon at Ralph Wilson Stadium, with the Patriots recording their first shutout of the season, but it still may not be enough.

Thanks as always for checking out the blog today and be sure to catch Patriots Today on Monday here at Patriots.com, regardless of how today plays out.


Heading to the locker room

December 28, 2008

The Pats are on the way to their 11th win of the season after Buffalo’s 4th down incompletion, and if they close this out, all eyes the rest of the afternoon will be on Jets-Dolphins and Ravens-Jaguars to determine the Pats’ playoff fate.

I’m headed down to the locker room for reaction and will post more later on.


Moss tops 1,000

December 28, 2008

Randy Moss’ reception on the last Patriots’ series was for 13 yards and puts him over the 1,000-yard mark for the second straight year as a Patriot. He now has 1,008 yards this year on 69 catches.


Light leaves

December 28, 2008

Matt Light left the game at the end of the 3rd quarter with a shoulder injury and his return is questionable.


Gostkowski prefers the east end

December 28, 2008

Stephen Gostkowski buried a 23-yard field goal to the same end that he connected on a field goal earlier, increasing the Patriots lead.

NE 13, BUF 0 (10:15 left in 4th Q)


Moss gets his first

December 28, 2008

Randy Moss just caught his first pass of the game, a 13 yard gain in the first minute of the fiurth quarter, with the Pats driving to around the 25 yard line.
