View from Above: Face it, NFL. You had your chance

November 21, 2017

Memo to the Dolphins, Bills, Steelers and Jets:   Good luck.  You’ll probably need it. It was a struggle during the early portion of the 2017 schedule.  So much so, that there were TWO losses at Gillette Stadium, where New England has had better than an 80% success rate since opening the facility in 2002.   The defense had communication issues, so we’ve been told.  And the offense was missing an important…

Kyrie Irving, Cape and All, is C's New Superhero

November 21, 2017

DALLAS – Kyrie Irving walked off the American Airlines Center court Monday night with his mask removed and his head tucked through the neck of his jersey. His No. 11 draped off of his back like a cape as he glided toward the locker room. It was only fitting for a guy who looked like a superhero while scoring 47 points during Boston’s 110-102, come-from-behind, overtime victory over the Dallas…

November 21, 2017

Click on a player to reveal quotes from their postgame press conference. BRAD STEVENS RE: What was the postgame message to the team? “Obviously, [it was] quite and individual performance by Kyrie [Irving], [and] quite a resilient comeback in the fourth [quarter].

November 21, 2017

Key Moment No matter what type of shooting night Marcus Smart is having, he’s never afraid to shy away when the game is on the line. And more often than not, he delivers in the clutch. Smart did it again Monday night in Dallas, as he overcame a tough shooting performance by burying a clutch 3-pointer that helped push the game into overtime, before the C’s pulled away for their…

Performance Review: Patriots at Raiders

November 20, 2017

1st Quarter …I like what OC Josh McDaniels did on New England’s opening possession, electing to use the hurry-up offense frequently not only to unsettle the Raider defense, but also to tire them out in the nearly 7,400-ft. altitude of Mexico City. New England had the advantage from the get-go of having spent the previous nine days at similar heights while they stayed and practiced in Colorado last week. For…
