Good morning!

A few random thoughts while I wonder if there's ever been weather like this for a Patriots parade...

  • Hope everyone has fun at the parade today.
  • My bet for the star of the show: Jason McCourty.
  • Busy grinding the film ahead of Felger & Mazz. Will have my offensive review up later this morning.
  • Defense tomorrow.
  • Brian Flores was introduced as Dolphins coach. You can read his comments here.
  • I would like to see Brendan Daly get the nod as next defensive coordinator because he's been here, paid his dues and the players want him (like Flores).
  • I think naming Greg Schiano or Bret Bielema would send the wrong message to the rest of the staff, but everything Bill Belichick touches turns to gold, so it's not like it will matter.
  • Thursday is the NBA trade deadline. What will happen with Anthony Davis?
  • Celtics in Cleveland tonight.
  • Bruins host the Islanders.
  • With the Patriots playing so late every season, maybe we need to push the Beanpot back. I didn't get to see any of it last night. Bummer. One of my favorite events. It will be Boston College vs. Northeastern in the final.
  • Women's Beanpot starts tonight.
