New England Patriots: Cameron McGrone enters 2022 with high hopes

The New England Patriots have huge questions at some key positions and some of those questions were not answered during free agency or the 2022 NFL Draft, which puts the pressure on young players like linebacker Cameron McGrone. Drafted in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, McGrone didn’t see the field during his […] New England Patriots: Cameron McGrone enters 2022 with high hopes - Chowder and Champions - Chowder and Champions - A Boston Sports Site - Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and More!

New England Patriots absolutely need Ronnie Perkins to breakout in 2022

The New England Patriots will be counting on a few of their younger players to make major leaps in 2022.  One of those players is 2021 third-round pick Ronnie Perkins.

Inspired by Patriots ‘culture’, why Ty Montgomery is a player to watch

As one of the few free agent signings in the offseason, versatile running back Ty Montgomery will either be a key addition to the New England Patriots offense or won’t even make the team. After spending his first seven NFL seasons with the Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets and New Orleans Saints, […] Inspired by Patriots ‘culture’, why Ty Montgomery is a player to watch - Chowder and Champions - Chowder and Champions - A Boston Sports Site - Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and More!

Patriots rookie WR Tyquan Thornton is exactly what Mac Jones needs

I don’t get the Tyquan Thornton criticism. Fans wanted the New England Patriots to select a receiver early, right? That’s exactly what the Patriots did. So why did so many give the selection a thumbs down? Is it because he’s not the receiver they wanted? Well Thornton isn’t who I wanted (Chris Olave) or who […] Patriots rookie WR Tyquan Thornton is exactly what Mac Jones needs - Chowder and Champions - Chowder and Champions - A Boston Sports Site - Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and More!

New England Patriots: 3 bold predictions for the rest of the offseason

The New England Patriots offseason work is in the rearview mirror for the most part. The 2022 NFL Draft took place a few weeks back, and while there are some solid free agents available, free agency has cooled off quite a bit. Despite that, the offseason isn’t over entirely.

NFL Power Rankings: New England Patriots looking mediocre post-draft

The NFL has been a whirlwind of shocking trades and intriguing free agent signings this offseason, but for the New England Patriots it has been both underwhelming and head scratching as to what the team did not do to improve the team.

Nelson Agholor looking to ‘something special’ for Patriots in 2022

As a part of the New England Patriots spending spree in 2021, veteran wide receiver Nelson Agholor took the money and didn’t exactly run during the season. In other words, he didn’t exactly live up to the two-year, $26 million deal signed after a breakout season with the Las Vegas Raiders in 2020.  While he […] Nelson Agholor looking to ‘something special’ for Patriots in 2022 - Chowder and Champions - Chowder and Champions - A Boston Sports Site - Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and More!

It’s ova, Jarrett Stidham. The New England Patriots drafted your replacement in Bailey Zappe. You don’t even get to keep your jersey, Stidham. Zappe wore 4 at Western Kentucky.

New England Patriots: Mac Jones as popular as Tom Brady in this one way

In some ways, New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones is having a better start to his career than his predecessor Tom Brady. No, he didn’t win a Super Bowl or may not end his career playing till the age of 45 with 7 Super Bowls and a monster 10-year, $375 million tv broadcasting deal once […] New England Patriots: Mac Jones as popular as Tom Brady in this one way - Chowder and Champions - Chowder and Champions - A Boston Sports Site - Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and More!

New England Patriots Legends: Julian Edelman and his NFL career

What a stretch it has been for the New England Patriots since the 2001 season. First came the head coach that nobody thought would have the success that he now can big about, until the end of time.

Kevin Harris adds intriguing power to New England Patriots backfield

What were the New England Patriots thinking when they selected South Carolina running back Kevin Harris with the No. 183 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft? That’s a big question, especially after the team already selected running back Pierre Strong Jr. at No. 127.

Upon Further Review: Patriots selecting Marcus Jones the right move

My first reaction to the New England Patriots selecting cornerback Marcus Jones in the third round of the NFL Draft: they selected a returner in the third round. It wasn’t a surprise that New England took the former Houston Cougar. There were multiple analysis that said Jones was a Patriots type of player.

The Boston Bruins once again looked miserable in Game 2 against the Carolina Hurricanes as the two teams square off in their first-round series.

Boston Bruins: It might be time to put “The Perfection Line” back together

The Boston Bruins first-round matchup against the Carolina Hurricanes did not get off to a pretty  start in Game 1. While the final score of 5-1 is a bit misleading (the Bruins were down by just one goal with a little over 10 minutes left), it wasn’t the start the Bruins were looking for to […] Boston Bruins: It might be time to put “The Perfection Line” back together - Chowder and Champions - Chowder and Champions - A Boston Sports Site - Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and More!
