If you are making or bringing food somewhere, are you staying healthy or going all out "party food"? <BR> <BR> Do you have a healthy (or at least less-bad) recipe to share?? Fri, 27 Jan 2017 15:09:10 EST This is it. Super Bowl LI. Falcons/ Patriots 2/5. The team has shuffled a few players since the beginning of the year. Brady was on vacation (haha) for an extra 4 games. Gronk is out. Hogan is a hero! The Defense has stepped up and showed some great work against the Steelers. <BR> <BR> What do you think are the keys to the Patriots taking home #5??

I will be going to the Patriots/49ers game on November 20th. There is an amazing Patriots Tailgate group that arranges for parties, guest appearances, stadium tours... They also print up pretty cool t-shirts. I bought one. It is awesome. I figured I'd buy a 2xl just to be safe on side. I was so excited when it came in the mail last week. Until I held it ...

How do you access regular season games? We would like to drop Direct TV bacause the cost has gone out of bounds. Unfortunately, here on Cape Cod we can not get basic channels even with an antenna, so we would probably have to go with Xfinity basic and hope all the Pat's games are sold out and televised on national TV. Last year I purchased NFL rewind for just Pat's games, but of course you cannot watch them in real time. Oh the challenges.... <BR> <BR> So how do you access all the NFL games?

Something to consider..... Sat, 27 Jun 2015 05:55:49 EST Hello from North Carolina Hello Team, So glad to have found you. :D I am 49 years old, have been married for 27 years to my best friend and we have two beautiful daughters. We recently moved from Maine to North Carolina to follow the husbands job. After the fourth time in 10 years that the husband lost his job to the poor economy or that the jobs all went over seas, we decided it was time to leave Maine. :( But... Just because we left New England doesn't mean we left our Pats behind. I am probably one of the... Sun, 21 Jun 2015 10:38:13 EST DEFLATE This!! All that time and they come up with "probably" "possibly" "generally"? If they were wrong, then fine them the $25k you fined the Vikings for messing with their footballs and move on. All this speculation and finger pointing is bad for the game, the NFL and the Pats. <BR> <BR> What are your thoughts on the Wells Report?

For those of us in Massachusetts, we have opportunities to hear Belichick say more than "We're moving on to..." on local sports shows. It was nice to see him joke and open up a bit during media week. It will be fun to see him in more of a relaxed (hopefully) atmosphere tonight. Hopefully, DL doesn't bring up deflategate...I can just picture BB shutting down.

I know it's off season but I just started with Spark People and wanted to introduce myself. I love the Patriots and so excited that their is a team devoted to them. I look forward to getting to know all of you! Tue, 1 Jul 2014 21:16:32 EST Getting ready for the Draft Sorry, I haven't been here in a long time. Medical problems, business problems, and other issues have kept me busy. Too Busy!! <BR> Time to start thinking about Football! <BR> We have been extremely fortunate to have Tom and Bill for the last 14 years. <BR> Key injuries were the difference between making the Super Bowl or being eliminated by the Broncos in the playoffs. <BR> What position do you see the Pats filling on first round on Draft Day? <BR> Thu, 1 May 2014 23:43:00 EST Still watching?? So, is anyone watching the Super Bowl this Sunday? Do you care who wins? Having a nice healthy snack fest? Getting a work out in before the game? <BR> <BR> Seachickens or Donkeys???? Thu, 30 Jan 2014 19:57:29 EST Playoff Game #1 - Bring on the Colts! Hi all! <BR> I can barely contain myself I'm so excited for the Colts Playoff game tonight! I feel really good and hopeful that this could be our year! But I don't want to get ahead of let's beat the Colts tonight huh? <BR> <BR> (PS My DS is in Sydney Australia doing a winter semester abroad and is desperately trying to find a place to watch the game! it will be 12:15pm on Sunday when the game plays there!) <BR> <BR> Mary;) Sat, 11 Jan 2014 17:54:10 EST Hello, I am new here too! Nice to meet all of you! Go Pats! :) Sat, 4 Jan 2014 20:21:12 EST Next up Denver The Patriots had one of their best games last week against Carolina, even though we lost. <BR> <BR> Given that we are missing all stars on defense (Wilfork, Mayo, and others), the Pats defense played well; and the offense looked very good against a very good defense. <BR> <BR> Now, we have Denver with a great offense ( hope our former hero- Wes can play), but a suspect defense. <BR> Giving the weather: cold, snowy?- We should prevail! <BR> <BR> Belichick has done a wonderful job coaching ... Fri, 22 Nov 2013 21:38:30 EST Half way in the season Our bye comes at a good time. Almost at the half way point we are 7-2. <BR> Given all the injuries to key people, it is remarkable we are doing so well. <BR> The Pats always play well when the weather gets colder. <BR> Hope we have snow down the stretch and take advantage of it. <BR> Of course it's easy when I am sitting in a nice warm house enjoying the game on TV <em>30</em> <BR> <em>224</em> Sun, 10 Nov 2013 20:14:48 EST New and a wicked big Patriots fan! My name is Stephanie. I just joined SparkPeople. I'm from MA but live in VA now. I LOVE THE NE PATS. Sun, 3 Nov 2013 13:08:44 EST Hello! I am new! I am a Grandma who needs to learn about football. <BR> I was never a big football watcher but my Son loves the game. I started watching the game with my son a few years back. I enjoy the game but not to sharp on all the details yet. <BR> Sat, 2 Nov 2013 01:00:03 EST Attitude or Sports quotes "Get up boxing vince lomnardi It does not matter how many times you get knocked down, but how many times you get up." Vince Lombardi Sat, 2 Nov 2013 00:52:27 EST The only Pats fan in Phoenix Well, at least it feels like it sometimes! I love my boys! I liked them already, but fell hard back in 1994 when Kraft came to my brother's HS Graduation and took the time to talk to my 1 year old son. <BR> <BR> They're having a hard year but they'll pull it off. Brady will get them under control and headed to the playoffs. Tue, 29 Oct 2013 22:59:20 EST Pats vs Saints WOW! WHAT A FINISH!!!!!! I thought FOR SURE Bill B. BLEW IT, when he went for it on 4th Down & they didn't make it! Look at the FIELD POSITION THAT GAVE THE SAINTS!!!!! <BR> They only got a FG; BUT....that made the Pats HAVE to score a TD! <BR> Then, I REALLY thought the game was over when Tommy baby threw that INT! <BR> I thought the game was OVER; BUT TOM BRADY pulled more MAGIC OUT OF HIS HAT & we won the GAME! BEST GAME TODAY!!!!!! Sun, 13 Oct 2013 20:32:11 EST What is your prediction for the Pats' season? Now that the pre-season is over, it is time to get down to business and give your prediction: What will the Patriots' record be this year? <BR> <BR> I miss Wes and Woody already. Hope Danny and Edelman stay healthy. And there is no way to access how well Gronk will play after 4 surgeries on his arm. They have a lot of question marks but with a somewhat weak schedule, they will be all right. <BR> <BR> I say 11- 5 !/?! Thu, 5 Sep 2013 21:47:14 EST Hernandez Fallout Hey everyone, <BR> We've had some time to mull over incidents involving Hernandez. I am still upset about the whole thing. I am glad for the way the Patriot's handled it, but it still is such a bad specter that hangs over the team. <BR> <BR> Thoughts from others? Thu, 11 Jul 2013 12:04:46 EST Tim Tebow Thoughts Hi All, <BR> Just thought it would be interesting to get others thoughts on the Tim Tebow signing. I have always trusted Bill to make great team decisions and when he makes a bad one he will correct down the road. I am not upset with the move, I'm just going to wait and see. Sun, 16 Jun 2013 10:03:44 EST NFL Draft tonight Will you watch the Pats part of the draft? Or do you watch the first few rounds? <BR> I wonder who the Pats will draft in the first round? Maybe another TE?1?, considering ongoing problems at that position. Thu, 25 Apr 2013 18:15:01 EST 2013 schedule <link><BR>iots-2013-schedule-announced/1ade1bd1-<BR>7b58-4bf6-9fe2-114a25de3c26 </link> <BR> <BR> Besides the AFC east teams, I think we have a pretty tough schedule. <BR> <BR> I am hoping to get tix to the Pats v. Steelers game. Thu, 18 Apr 2013 22:15:23 EST What do you think of the Pats' signings so far? It will be a real bummer if Gronk needs another operation and misses a lot of coming season. <BR> All the more reason to have signed Wes! Oh well, time to move on. <BR> <BR> Brady will have a number of good targets and if they play well, the Pats will make the playoffs and then we will see how far they can go. <BR> Fri, 12 Apr 2013 18:52:22 EST First Wes and now our Woody!! I guess Bill and company know what they're doing, but I didn't think they would let Danny Woodhead go to the Chargers after losing Wes Welker. Thought he was a "Kevin Faulk type" <BR> (3rd down specialist, always giving 100%). <em>46</em> <BR> <BR> Oh well, I am still a big Pat's fan and maybe the replacement players will be fantastic! <BR> At least I hope so. Fri, 15 Mar 2013 18:19:18 EST Wes has signed with the Broncos! :( :( I can't believe Wes has gone to the Broncos for $12 mill over 2 years!?! <BR> Now he has Payton throwing those darts rather than Brady. <BR> After Tom Terrific, he has been my favorite Patriots player for the last 5 years!! <BR> He went over the middle against middle linebackers and took the hits but still delivered. <BR> How can you replace him? Gronk & Hernandez can be great, but time will tell if they can stay healthy. <BR> Hope Bill knows who will replace his many receptions. Wed, 13 Mar 2013 18:58:36 EST Response to thanx for a good season Hi Elaine, <BR> Isn't amazing how the Patriots give us such exciting games year after year! Maybe they haven't won the superbowl for a while, but I am sure there are plenty of teams in the NFL and their fans who would love to have the record the Pats have. Fri, 8 Feb 2013 11:36:41 EST What about Wes? Would you give Welker a three year contract (if that's the length of deal he wants), or franchise him again? Or let him go? <BR> I think he has proven his worth when Gronk went down and other receivers were either hurt or ineffective. Within reason, I would give him what he wants. <BR> It is not just the system, Wes gets open in areas where very few receivers can work. Sun, 27 Jan 2013 19:14:00 EST Get ready for the AFC Championship! I hope you are ready to cheer on the Pats this Sunday. It should be another terrific game. <BR> The two best teams are meeting and it will be a battle to the last minute. <BR> Let us know if you have the good fortune to be going to the game. Fri, 18 Jan 2013 18:19:48 EST Diehard fan here in Indy I moved to Indianapolis over a year ago! I was so disappointed to have my boys, The Pats, in town the first year I moved only to have them lose the Superbowl 2011. Well, this week, I just want them to beat those Texans! I'm taking one week at a time! Lord, please have my boys vindicated! Amen! <BR> <BR> <em>211</em> Go Pats! Sun, 13 Jan 2013 07:25:23 EST Texans verses Patriots I am so excited about today's game <em>281</em> .....Love those Pats and will be praying and rooting for them until I lose my voice..... <em>215</em> <BR> <BR> GO PATS!!! 4:30 can't come soon enough! Sat, 12 Jan 2013 11:36:34 EST Wild card weekend! The next two weekends are probably the best weekends for pro football fans. <BR> Four games each weekend for two weeks with the best teams fighting it out to be in the Super Bowl. <BR> I think the Pats have as good a chance as any to go all the way, esp with the return of Gronk! <BR> Thu, 3 Jan 2013 18:34:47 EST Up next Miami! After an ugly win against one of worst teams, the Pats have to turn it around and prepare for the playoffs. So, Miami will be a good test. <BR> It probably is in our best interests we lost to the 49ers two weeks ago after that stunning defeat of Houston. Maybe we were getting over confident. Thu, 27 Dec 2012 21:44:15 EST Tonight the 49ers come to town. This is the last tough team the Pats have before the playoff. If we win the rest of our games, we will have the record I predicted, (13 - 3)! <BR> Of course after 6 games when the record was 3 - 3, I didn't think we had a chance for 13 wins. <BR> Go Patriots!! Sun, 16 Dec 2012 14:35:06 EST Here come the Texans! The Pats will have to play very well this week and next week( the 49ers) to beat two of the best teams in the NFL. <BR> I think the Pats' hurry up offense will get them past Houston. <BR> All these games are important to determine whether we get a first round bye and home field advantage. Go Patriots!! <em>381</em> Sun, 9 Dec 2012 13:35:36 EST Next up Miami We can never take any team too lightly. I hope we don't look past the Fish to our upcoming games with Houston and the Forty- niners. Our Offensive line is banged up, but Dante Scarnecchia is doing a great job patching it up and keeping Tom on his feet! Fri, 30 Nov 2012 19:41:30 EST Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope you all enjoyed being with your families today and get a chance to watch the Pats - Jets game tonight. Go Patriots!! Thu, 22 Nov 2012 17:26:22 EST Peter King of SI rates the Pats as the top team! After our big win over the Colts, Peter King of Sports Illustrated ranks the Patriots the number 1 team in the league! <BR> Unfortunately Gronk suffered a broken forearm and will be out 4 - 6 weeks. <BR> Hope Hernandez is healthy enough to play next week. Mon, 19 Nov 2012 13:41:17 EST Luck and the Colts One good test after another. Now we have Andrew Luck and the Colts. <BR> This will be another tough game for our pass defense. We can't always put up 30+ points and win. But, the offense has been great with their best running game in ages. Wed, 14 Nov 2012 20:32:00 EST Next, the Buffalo Bills I hope you all had a good bye week! It's great to have a weekend without planning around the Pats' game. <BR> Now the Bills come to town. If we play the way we finished the first half, it should be an easy victory. However the D line has to put more pressure on the Q back and our defensive backs have to cover a lot better. Aqib Talib should give us a big boost at cornerback. Thu, 8 Nov 2012 19:44:45 EST Bye Week Our bye week comes at a good time. We're half way through the season with the best offense and a greatly improved defense. <BR> Now there is time to heal up before the second half begins. Thu, 1 Nov 2012 19:25:09 EST Now on to London and the Rams! Imagine the season is almost half over. <BR> The Pats showed a lot of fortitude coming back in the game against the Jets. <BR> Of course we put ourselves in that position by poor play in the second half. <BR> The Defense does look better and if we keep improving, we will be in the playoffs. <em>381</em> Tue, 23 Oct 2012 21:18:08 EST The dreaded Jets and how to break 3-3 DE-FREAKING-FENCE!!!! <BR> Running game. <BR> Anyone else have any ideas? Sat, 20 Oct 2012 22:16:55 EST Next up - Seattle The #1 offense versus the #1 defense. I think the Pats will roll over the Seahawks the way they did Denver and Buffalo. I don't know if any coach can keep up with this offense. <BR> Hope Hernandez can play too! Thu, 11 Oct 2012 19:40:31 EST Great win against Denver! Now we have a running game to go with an unstoppable passing attack! <BR> ( Perhaps Hernandez will be back this week.) <BR> I think this was the best game of the season. The Pats get a big lead and then hang on at the end. Both teams played well. <BR> It may be the last time we face Peyton Manning unless the Broncos make the playoffs. <BR> He looked very sharp despite a year off due to his injury. <BR> Mon, 8 Oct 2012 19:11:19 EST Any worry concerning Peyton & the Broncos? I don't know about this team. If we play the way we finished against the Bills, we should do very well. <BR> As I said before you can never take any team lightly. Thu, 4 Oct 2012 20:02:18 EST Great turn around! This is the Patriots Team we have been looking for since the first game. <BR> In the second half the Pats scored 45 points! Winning the battle of the lines was key, giving us a strong running game ( Ridley & Bolden over 100 yds each ) and a strong air attack ( Welker & Gronk over 100 yds each). <BR> Let's keep it going next week. <BR> Sun, 30 Sep 2012 20:00:10 EST What about next game?? So, what do you think will happen this next game?? <BR> <BR> I'm still pouting because I think they were robbed in the Ravens game!! Sat, 29 Sep 2012 20:10:45 EST Come off the bridge, the season isn't over! That was a very disappointing game. The temporary refs are a joke! <BR> Until the ref strike is over there is no way to predict the outcome of games. I'm glad I don't bet!! <BR> <BR> Looking ahead, the Pats should be all right. They are still the best team in the AFC East and will be in the playoffs. When Hernandez is healthy and the rookies seasoned, we will dominate once again! Mon, 24 Sep 2012 20:53:44 EST How will you watch the Baltimore game? Do you wear a Pat's shirt, jersey or cap to bring them luck? I will be wearing my vintage cap and will be cheering enthusiastically! <em>334</em> <em>381</em> Sat, 22 Sep 2012 19:00:40 EST Pats upset by Arizona When Hernandez went down in the first quarter, I thought the Pats still had a good offense and should have won. Why wasn't Wes used more in the first half. He has been our most consistent weapon since 2007! <BR> Arizona has a tough defense and when they blocked our punt, they showed how good their special teams are. <BR> Maybe we took them too lightly. Anyway our D looked good and our rookies are contributing. <BR> You can not take any team too lightly. Sun, 16 Sep 2012 19:46:59 EST First Game was a Great Win for the Pats Wonderful win to start season. Dominate on offense and good defense against a good team. <BR> Ridley had great game too with over 100 rushing yards! Sun, 9 Sep 2012 16:53:33 EST What do you think of the Patriots' final cuts? We will miss Deon Branch, Dan Koppen, and Brian Hoyer. Belichick and the coaches know from the practices and games who their best players are. <BR> What do you think? Fri, 31 Aug 2012 20:52:44 EST What will be the Pats' season record? I am hoping (praying) the O Line plays as well as last year. Then with an improved defense, <BR> like last night, they can be 14 - 2 !! <em>334</em> Thu, 30 Aug 2012 18:14:02 EST Transplanted fan in California Hi, I sure miss being back in NE during football season. I don't miss the weather though. <BR> <BR> I've been with sp for a week now. I've done fairly well so far. I don't own a scale so I can't know if I'm lighter but I do track my food everyday. I do strength training just about everyday, too. Not much cardio due to mobility issues. Thu, 21 Jun 2012 13:49:21 EST Who has preseason jitters? I can't wait for training camp... almost here! I want to see how all the new defensive studs are going to do for us! On paper it looks like we have made an upgrade on every part of our defense, or at least held our ground as compaired to last year.. only time will tell I suppose. <BR> <BR> Go Pats! Thu, 14 Jun 2012 12:04:39 EST Wes Welker is not holding out...phew! <link><BR>ots/extra_points/2012/05/wes_welker_si<BR>gn.html </link> <BR> <BR> Tue, 15 May 2012 19:43:38 EST Draft is over With an improved defense, are you ready for the season? Wed, 2 May 2012 08:41:45 EST Bye Matt Light Bye Matt, we will miss you, but better to go out after a good year, than get hurt. Wed, 25 Apr 2012 08:46:04 EST Enter your diet "discovery" of the week.... OK... <BR> <BR> Just got a steamer and am trying new things....found out that Fiber One (original) works <em>345</em> as asian fried noodles....tastes great and ups my fiber for the day... <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> Fri, 17 Feb 2012 12:38:45 EST What do U watch now w/no football...? I usually watch the skiing, xgames, even figure skating when I am desperate.... <BR> <BR> NOTHING beats watching football...even find myself watching the NFL channel reruns... <em>46</em> <BR> <BR> Looking for viewing recommendations....please help.... <BR> <BR> DebbyO Thu, 16 Feb 2012 10:49:14 EST Half time show.... houghts? I am a fan of Madonna...but her show just wasn't up to her standards as far as dancing goes....I felt like I was watching Dolly Parton...I think she had old injuries affecting her show? <BR> <BR> I think the light show part of the half time was <em>250</em> ... <BR> <BR> As to the Brit who felt compelled to "flip off" all of America....UP YOURS!!!! Thu, 9 Feb 2012 08:40:53 EST Go Pats!!!! Good luck Patriots!!!! I am watching!!! Sun, 5 Feb 2012 18:13:37 EST Long time Pats fan from Seattle Been a long time Pats fan but just joined SparkPeople. Can't wait to get some revenge on the NYG this sunday! Fri, 3 Feb 2012 01:59:55 EST Predict the score.....prize to be announce d...LOL OK....I say....drum roll please....31 Patriots, 24 GIANTS..... <BR> <BR> and please let the offensive line do a GREAT job on keeping the Giants OFF of TB!!!! <BR> <BR> Whoever gets the closest can have their pick of the goodie of their choice...I will donate the points! <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Thu, 2 Feb 2012 10:41:15 EST Let the game begin!!!! I just want to see the game....and I don't want to wait anymore!!!! <BR> <BR> <em>40</em> <BR> <BR> Anybody else feel this way? HELP!!! Wed, 1 Feb 2012 08:47:52 EST Gronk's sore ankle...real or hype? I am hoping that they are making more of his rolled ankle so that the Giants will be lulled into a false sense of security....cannot imaging Gronk not playing in the SB!!! <BR> <BR> But it looked pretty sore when he got up and hobbled towards the bench.... <BR> <BR> <em>24</em> Sat, 28 Jan 2012 10:07:44 EST Traitor Newport Camel picks Giants to win! SOOOOO...a camel who used to reside in a Newport petting zoo has picked the NY Giants to win the Superbowl....She has picked 5 of the last 6 correctly... <BR> <BR> In this case, I will NOT hold this against her since she did not choose to be sold and be moved to the NY area...she just is trying to survive... <BR> <BR> The keeper says he prints the name of a team, one in each palm, and then places a graham cracker in each hand...the one she nibbles at first predicts the winner... <BR> <B... Fri, 27 Jan 2012 11:17:30 EST Thoughts on Super Bowl prep (team and/or us)???? The cursed Giants....but we owe them a good thumping.....I'll take Brady over Manning (not dissing Manning, TB just has more of what is needed)... <BR> <BR> <BR> Anybody planning to give or attend a SB Party? Highly recommend making a huge bowl of "cowboy caviar" to serve as dip...(it's black beans, tomatoes, corn, onion, cilantro).... Mon, 23 Jan 2012 10:04:41 EST We're going to the show!!!!! Anybody out there able to actually attend the game? <BR> <BR> <em>224</em> Mon, 23 Jan 2012 09:47:16 EST AFC Championship vs. Ravens Next Sunday at 3pm.... <BR> <BR> Super Bowl berth goes to the winner of this game.... <BR> <BR> Patriots need a solid game from the Offensive Line - keep TB from getting hit or hurried. <BR> <BR> Patriots need everyone to play mistake free - no turnovers like Houston yesterday.... <BR> <BR> Then, Its on to Indy for the SB. Mon, 16 Jan 2012 05:23:26 EST Anybody watch the BCS chanpionship last night? I love the Patriots!!! But DANG, college ball is SO MUCH FUN to watch... <BR> <BR> Both teams played their hearts out, but LSU came up WAY short.... <em>243</em> 'BAMA!!!! <BR> Tue, 10 Jan 2012 13:12:56 EST Divisional Playoff vs. Broncos The Tebow train comes to Foxboro this Saturday night. Tonight's OT win against a banged up Steelers team will most likely give the Broncos a false sense of accomplishment. <BR> <BR> Pats are healing; Edelman, Welker, Solder, among others have had time to heal those nagging injuries. <BR> <BR> Gronk should have another monster game against Denver. There is simply nobody on Denver's defense that can match up and stop him. <BR> <BR> Belichick has had two weeks to gameplan. That has historical... Sun, 8 Jan 2012 20:56:05 EST Losing our offense coordinator... wha-cha-think? <link><BR>onite-Make-Your-Case-Will-Bill-OBriens<BR>-departure-be-a-distraction-to-the-tea<BR>m/a1d0c9a2-59c2-425c-8d3a-400ed517fe98 </link> <BR> <BR> I don't envy Bill O'Brien taking the job at Penn State...."many" still want JP, so it's a lose/lose situation....but I do admire him for helping the college "move on"..... <BR> <BR> Thoughts anybody? Sat, 7 Jan 2012 08:08:44 EST Wild Card Weekend The patriots get this upcoming weekend off after finishing with the #1 playoff seed. <BR> <BR> In the AFC, #3 seed Houston plays host to the #6 seed Bengals. <BR> <BR> #4 seed Denver will try to compete against the #5 Steelers. <BR> <BR> I predict the #5 and #6 seeds will advance meaning the Pats will host the Bengals.... Mon, 2 Jan 2012 17:28:25 EST Week 17 vs. Buffalo Bills The Bills started the season on fire, charging to a 5-2 record. Since then they have leveled off. We can all relate to that! Hitting that plateau is tough. Getting past that plateau is harder to overcome. Sat, 31 Dec 2011 09:02:08 EST Merry Christmas from the Patriots SP team! Here's wishing you all the very best Christmas ever and continued success in your SPARKing!!! <BR> <BR> Peace & love! <BR> <BR> DebbyO Sat, 24 Dec 2011 07:17:26 EST Dolphins.. ..Saturday game...WooHoo!!! Time to fry the fish!!!! The Dolphins played pretty awesome this week....I'm glad this one is a home game.... Tue, 20 Dec 2011 13:36:24 EST Next..Bronkos @ mile high...? This one has me about you? <BR> <BR> <em>40</em> Tue, 13 Dec 2011 12:21:05 EST Don't forget to water your Christmas tree!!! Topic says it all!!!! <BR> <BR> Mine is drinking water like CRAZY!!! Sat, 10 Dec 2011 11:15:15 EST OMG...The Redskins, another woe-begotten team...? I grew up outside of DC...1960-2000...was there during their hayday!!! But dropped them after they "dissed" Art Monk... <BR> <BR> Thoughts on the game? Are we gonna "finish the game right"? Thoughts? Tue, 6 Dec 2011 14:02:27 EST OK...The Colts R next...????? I'm pulling a blank on this one...need to do my homework and see what we are going to be up against... Tue, 29 Nov 2011 10:53:25 EST The DANG Eagles again... houghts? I HATE THE EAGLES (and the Giants).... Wed, 23 Nov 2011 08:15:20 EST Wishes for a safe and Happy Thanksgi ving!!!! I am praying that you all have a fantastic Turkey Day and that your travels are safe and without problems.... <BR> <BR> Peace & love! <BR> <BR> DebbyO Tue, 22 Nov 2011 18:40:56 EST Patriots vs KC Chiefs....? I just hope we don't get too cocky after such a GREAT trouncing of the Jets.... <BR> <BR> I wonder if it is more difficult for us with Cassel being "out".....devil U know vs devil U don't? Tue, 15 Nov 2011 07:57:45 EST Joe Paterno...keep or fire....? I am just so disgusted by this whole thing.... <BR> <BR> I'd hate to see JP lose his job over this...but how could he not report this to the police when his boss failed to do it? Wed, 9 Nov 2011 09:10:15 EST Thoughts on Pats vs Jets.... Time for us to "Patriot Up"...we are still # 1 in our division...I still think that this is a temporary lull... <BR> <BR> I STILL BELIEVE!!!! Tue, 8 Nov 2011 07:10:04 EST Thoughts on Patriots vs Giants....? I really, really dislike the Giants...they were a pain in the Redskin's butt and it has also been true of the Pats.... <BR> <BR> I guess the Giants are "my version" of the whole Yankees thing...(I would rather drink sour milk than watch a baseball game...).......the Giants are the team I love to hate.... Wed, 2 Nov 2011 08:44:52 EST Saddest play/boo-boo in the Steeler game? WHat play most upset you this week? <BR> <BR> Who do you think did worse...defense or offense? <BR> <BR> I was working, so I didn't see the game...but the 1 minute I did see, the crowd was REALLY making it hard for the Pats...(of course, WE do the same thing up that's just a part of "the game"...) Tue, 1 Nov 2011 09:18:28 EST Post interesting Patriot's news links here.... Gonna try this rather than sending team SP mail....feel free to post links you found interesting... <BR> <BR> <link><BR>3241/scouts-inc-on-chad-ochocinco </link> Wed, 26 Oct 2011 11:12:09 EST Which Patriot are you? (quiz) <link><BR>ots/extras/which_patriot_are_you/ </link> <BR> <BR> I'm Devin McCourty (cornerback): I have the quiet confidence to believe I always have the situation covered. <em>211</em> Sat, 22 Oct 2011 10:43:31 EST What about Chad Ochocinco's performance so far? The team and coaches are behind him...I know the man has talent...and it does take time for a rapport to develop between a QB and a receiver....but WTH? <BR> <BR> Anybody else feel this way? Has "reducing his flamboyance" reduced his effectiveness? <BR> <BR> I was just expecting a little more from him at this point of the season.... Tue, 18 Oct 2011 10:25:59 EST Struggling <em>102</em> Tue, 18 Oct 2011 10:04:05 EST Next up, Pitts. Steelers.. WooHoo!!!! Thoughts? I am afraid!!!! This one should be a cake walk! Hope the team doesn't look at it that way....the Steelers are dangerous and they have had some weird games this season.... Tue, 18 Oct 2011 08:27:53 EST Pats Fan in the Panhandle How's everyone doing? I've been here in the Panhandle of Florida for a little over a year now, but been a Pats fan forever. Even the rough years of every year before '96. I found SparkPeople while surfing the internet looking for something to track my diet. Looked like what I needed, so I figured why not give it a shot. Wed, 12 Oct 2011 14:45:16 EST Patriots VS Cowboys this week...t houghts? <em>244</em> <BR> <BR> All things considered, the Patriots are in as good a shape as can be expected with just Dallas standing between them and their bye week … and a 5-1 record. Buffalo faces an NFC East foe as well this week, traveling to the Meadowlands to take on the Giants, meaning with a little luck, New England could head into their bye week alone on top of the AFC East. <BR> <BR> Wed, 12 Oct 2011 07:15:47 EST Jets...PAYBACK TIME...t hrowback uniforms... OK...TIME FOR A HOME GAME AND PAYBACK!!!! Patriots have an a history of playing well in October...GO PATRIOTS!!! <BR> <BR> Any thoughts on this game? Wed, 5 Oct 2011 10:31:44 EST BB and the stupid "lost" timeout.... I was working during this game...did BB ever explain what happened with the lost timeout in the fourth quarter? Wed, 28 Sep 2011 08:47:47 EST This week Oakland. ..breast cancer ribbons... I have mixed feelings on this one (since I was born in Oakland) but my heart belongs to the Patriots!!!! <BR> <BR> I am glad that the Patriots will be wearing ribbons to support breast cancer for this game and an upcoming home game.... <BR> <BR> The Raiders are a pretty penalty ridden team and heavy hitters, but this will be a bounce back game for the Patriots!!!! <BR> <BR> PS....SHAKE IT OFF, Tom...we believe in you! Wed, 28 Sep 2011 08:36:02 EST BB: A Football Life Anyone else watching Bill Belichick: A Football Life on NFL Network? Thu, 15 Sep 2011 21:02:40 EST Bummer about Dan Koppen (center) ankle fracture. I am sending wishes, to Dan, for a fast is a MAJORLY under appreciated position.... Wed, 14 Sep 2011 11:53:09 EST Next up, San Diego... thoughts on this next game? Last year we "lucked out" with coming up with points/saving points, from Chager turnovers....hope we can force a lot of them this year, too... Wed, 14 Sep 2011 09:28:47 EST
