Malcolm Butler Didn’t Deserve This

Taylor McCloud -- Pats Militia Bill Belichick lied. https://twitter.com/tdmcld/status/960369287188877312 He said he made the decisions which gave the Patriots the best chance to win Super Bowl LII, but that was a lie, because when he decided to remove Malcolm Butler from any and all defensive gameplans, he made a decision which negatively impacted the football team. He always says he’s...

Hats Off To The Philadelphia Eagles

Taylor McCloud -- Pats Militia First things first: hats off to the Philadelphia Eagles. From the opening kickoff to the final whistle, they outplayed the Patriots. There’s no two ways about it. I could make excuses or concentrate on Tom Brady’s performance but that’d be disingenuous. Last night, the Eagles were the better football team and they played like it....

The Eagles Are Actually Good. How Will The Patriots Attack Them?

Taylor McCloud -- Pats Militia Despite the dog masks and underdog narrative, the Philadelphia Eagles are a good football team. They’re the #1 seed in the NFC for a reason. There’s no two ways about it. After losing Carson Wentz in Week 14, they didn’t skip a beat. With Nick Foles at the helm, they went 2-1, finishing the regular...

Can The Jaguars Defense Beat The Patriots?

Taylor McCloud -- Pats Militia Last season, before the Super Bowl, I wrote that I've never gone into a game thinking the Patriots are going to lose. Today is no different. I am 100% confident the Patriots will beat the Jaguars and go on to play for their sixth Super Bowl. That being said, it'd be delusional to think a...

Midseason Statistics Report

Alden Newman-Pats Militia   It hasn’t been the start many of us were anticipating. Critical injuries, struggling defense, and inconsistent offensive line play have derailed hopes of 19-0. But looking at the big picture, there’s nothing to worry about. Like the sun rising each morning, the Patriots are leading the AFC East. I can’t complain about a 6-2 start, and...

Pats Claw Through Tough One, Beat Los Angeles 21-13

Taylor McCloud -- Pats Militia After defeating the Atlanta Falcons 23-7 last week, the New England Patriots looked to stay on track against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. As so often has happened in the last two decades, the Patriots accomplished exactly what they set out to, defeating the Chargers 21-13. Coming into the contest, most eyes were on...

Putting the Spotlight On Some of the Patriot’s Unsung Heroes

Alden Newman-Pats Militia   The talk of the season before that brilliant win on Sunday night has been how bad our defense is. And it’s all been very fair. The statistic that everyone was talking about, the Patriots allowing 300+ passing yards to every quarterback they’ve faced, was really troubling. Especially when that group includes Josh McCown, Alex Smith, and...

Pats Battle Falcons & Fog, Win 23-7

Taylor McCloud -- Pats Militia On the first drive of last night’s Super Bowl rematch between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots, five flags were thrown. The Gillette Stadium turf was littered with yellow, and the game had less than no flow. That was short lived. A crazy amount of fog rolled into Foxborough, and with it came the...

Patriots vs. Falcons Round Two: Can the Sequel Live Up to the Original?

Alden Newman-Pats Militia   There’s a lot of buzz for the Sunday night game this week, and for good reason. For just the eighth time in NFL history, the two teams that squared off in the most recent Super Bowl will meet up in the following regular season. For those of you who are new to the planet Earth, the...
