After every Patriots game – Mike is going to turn on his recorder and give his immediate thoughts on the game he just watched. 2021 was the start of a new era of Patriots football, 2022 happened, and in 2023 we were hoping for something better. That clearly isn't happening.

What a great time to start a Patriots podcast - AFTER Tom Brady leaves the team. This show isn't about the nuts and bolts as some nerds demand. This show is just about reacting to what we just watched.

    The End of the Bill Belichick Era

    The End of the Bill Belichick Era

    And just like that - it's over. The TRUE end of a dynasty ended on January 11, 2024 when Bill Belichick announced he and the New England Patriots will be parting ways. What the future holds for the Patriots, who can say? I just wanted to take a few minutes and give my gratitude to Coach Belichick for giving me so many memories that I'll cherish for the rest of my life. And while this long chapter ends, let's hope for great days ahead. Go Pats!

    NFL Week 18: Jets 17 - Patriots 3

    This is the end, beautiful friend....This is the end, my only friend....The end. The end of the season and possibly the end of an era. I'd like to put this season in the rearview mirror - and hope with whatever comes, better days are ahead....Go Pats!

    NFL Week 17: Bills 27 - Patriots 21

    Happy New Year's Eve, football nerds! After some terribly sloppy play, the Patriots made a game of it while the Bills did their best to not want to win. But they did. In the long run this is probably better for the Patriots, but still never fun to see the Bills win a game. Let's do this one more time next week...

    NFL Week 16: Patriots 26 - Broncos 23

    Merry Christmas! Draft positioning be damned, this was a helluva win and a great, poetic ending for Chad Ryland. I don't care what anybody says, I enjoyed this game and this win. What an ending! Happy Holidays, Pats fans!

    NFL Week 15: Chiefs 27 - Patriots 17

    And just like that the winning streak is over. The Pats fall to 3-11 and the focus stays on the draft and the future of this team and its coaching staff. See you Christmas Eve!

    Music in this episode - "Down" by 311 - Get it? 311...3-11....I'm brilliant!

    NFL Week 14: Patriots 21 - Steelers 18

    "Hark! The herald angels sing - the Pats actually got a win!" Admit it, you sang that out loud. Well folks, here we are with a very special episode of Patriots Afterthoughts - coming to you after a rare Patriots victory. There have only been 3 this year, so enjoy them while you can. Sure the more the lose, the better their draft position is - but tell that to me whilst I'm actually watching the game...

Football Analysis the Way It Should Be

I appreciate Mike’s passion, sense of humor, and transparency. I’m a Pats fan since 2007, but far from an expert. So it’s great to hear a podcast from a “normal” guy, who is also a fan, and just talks football in a way the rest of us can understand and appreciate. Keep up the good work, Mike. Even though the Pats keep losing, I still look forward to your podcast each week.

Avoid

Zero football analysis. Constant whining about the Pats (instead of analyzing the nuts and bolts of a loss) and personal life. If you’re going to publicly whine (selfishly) every year about driving your in-law to Florida don’t do it. Avoid. Avoid this poor podcast.
