The Patriot Way – New England Patriots News From Around the Web


Hello, and welcome to another edition of ‘The Patriot Way’, your number one source to New England Patriots news and analysis from around the web.

First we take a look at the work that Oliver Thomas of NEPatriotsDraft.com has been doing. Oliver looks at the tape of Brandon Browner, and what he can do when he’s available to play in week five and on. If Browner can replicate the things that he does in this tape, beating players up at the line, then he’s going to be a major coup for the Patriots secondary this season.

Next we look at James Christensen of Bleacher Report, who contrasts and compares the 2014 Patriots to their counterparts of a decade ago, that won the team their last Super Bowl. Which team do you guys think is better and why?

Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal talks to Matthew Slater about what it took for him to just maintain a job in New England, and how he’s risen up through the team ranks to become one of the most influential players on the team, and one of the best special teamers in the NFL.

Finally, we take a look at the always entertaining Four Downs piece from the crew of writers over on ESPN’s AFC East blog. Concerning the Patriots, they ask how many years does Tom Brady have left in the tank?
