Bill Belichick was the goat of last year’s Super Bowl. He inexplicably sat Malcolm Butler while Nick Foles shred the porous Patriots’ defense for 373 yards in the second-highest-scoring Super Bowl ever. On top of that, Belichick was reportedly feuding with Tom Brady, and causing Rob Gronkowski to...

For once, the most absurd anti-Patriots take doesn’t belong to Max Kellerman or Rob Parker. Though they both tried to rip Tom Brady in the immediate aftermath of his sixth Super Bowl victory –– Parker said Brady still isn’t the GOAT –– they at least acknowledged the right of each Patriots player to...

ATLANTA — Excuse me, come again? One of the most mind-boggling quotes following the Patriots’ 13-3 win over the Rams in Super Bowl LII came from Rams defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Even though Julian Edelman was the game’s MVP and finished with 10 catches on 12 targets for 141 yards, Suh claimed...

ATLANTA — Kyle Van Noy doesn’t forget. There were many points during the 2018 season where the Patriots were counted out by a number of people. There was the 1-2 start, the horrible loss in Tennessee in November, and then late back-to-back road losses in Weeks 15 and 16. But in the end, the...
