My nearly three-year run at WEEI has been filled with surreal moments: arguing with childhood hero Curt Schilling about QAnon; broadcasting live from the same Fenway Park studios I used to leer into as a strange teenager; receiving scorn from an entire region. But what I’m about to write tops all...

NASHVILLE — The past few days have served as a reminder the Patriots wide receiver situation really isn’t that great. Aside from Julian Edelman, who is currently on NFI, no one really knows what the team has from any of its wideouts. And making matters worse is injuries have forced a number of...

At the height of the Cold War, the United States and Soviet Union each adhered to the theory of Mutually Assured Destruction, which predicted a full-scale nuclear entanglement between the two superpowers would result in the complete annihilation of both parties –– and the world. As a result, the U...

So the Red Sox went into Cleveland and took two out of three from the playoff-bound Indians. Are you buying in? Let me make myself perfectly clear, I most certainly am not. As the pudgy 70’s pop singer Meatloaf once crooned, "Two out of three ain't bad" but losing 12 out of 17 is and that’s exactly...

NASHVILLE — Each step of the way this summer, the Patriots defense has answered the call. It clearly was the superior unit over the first week of practices at Gillette Stadium against the offense. One of the highlights was stopping Tom Brady and Co. on three straight plays from the two-yard line in...

NASHVILLE — Wide receiver is one of the most competitive positions on the entire Patriots roster. Competition is always a good thing, but is it really a good thing when the competition is for the No. 4 and 5 spots, and the Nos. 1-3 spots aren’t exactly known? This is where the Patriots find...

For weeks, the chatter surrounding the Patriots wide receiver position was there weren’t enough of them and it was going to all fall on the shoulders of Julian Edelman when he returns from being on the NFI list. Wide receiver wasn’t exactly a strength of the roster in 2018 and not many moves were...

This city’s sports allegiances are about to be tested like never before, and given our rich history, that statement is not to be taken lightly. The so-called Boston Sports Mount Rushmore –– which makes at least one annual appearance on our airwaves during the holiday season –– usually includes some...

Typically, the majority of the preseason games really aren’t all that exciting with the starters getting little, if any playing time, especially with the games following joint practices. But, that won’t completely be the case this year for the Patriots thanks to rookie quarterback Jarrett Stidham...

Larry Lucchino once famously said (paraphrasing), “I’m more concerned with a team's biology than a team's chemistry.” Personally, I’m concerned with both but when it comes to the state of the 2019 Red Sox, I’d say the teams’ psychology is its biggest problem these days. However, the key word from...
