Patriots and NFL websites and podcasts

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

It's one of the happiest times of the year: NFL kickoff weekend. The Red Sox are having a tough year, and the Patriots are coming around at just the right time.

I’m a news geek (and a bit of an information junkie — of course, I eat my own dog food, so I’m a heavy user of Serendeputy’s New England Patriots page…)).

Beyond that, here’s how I’m keeping track of the Pats and the league this year. Have fun, and Go Pats!

Websites

Christopher Price leads WEEI’s coverage. On the radio, I love the Sunday morning show with Dale Arnold and his brethren. It’s the best companion when raking the leaves.

Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston is always on top of things.

Boston.com Patriots pulls together the Boston.com coverage. The Globe is paywalled.

The Patriots subreddit has a reasonably clueful set of commenters.

Pro Football Talk aggregates news from around the league. The commenters leave something to be desired. Here is the direct link to the Patriots stories.

The MMQB has excellent league-wide coverage. As does Grantland. Deadspin is often entertaining. They even let us know why the Patriots suck.

Podcasts

I listen to 2-3 hours of podcasts a day — in the car, on the trail or puttering around the house. These are my football favorites.

Ross Tucker Football Podcast. Ross Tucker (a former offensive lineman for the Patriots, among other teams) has an outstanding daily show during the season.

ESPN Football Today is ESPN’s daily football podcast, with Robert Flores and Matt Williamson.

Grantland NFL Podcast is Grantland’s football podcast, with Robert Mays and Bill Barnwell.

PFW in Progress is the podcast from Patriots Football Weekly, which is affiliated with the Patriots themselves. This is the closest of any of these podcasts to having the “hanging out with your (occasionally idiot) buddies at the bar.” feel.

Am I missing anything? Please leave a comment or tweet me @jpbutler with more suggestions.
