New England Patriots Make Magic – Magician in the House, Yes Really

Posted on January 22, 2017

By Jacqueline Bennett   (Magic: Use of special powers to make things happen that would usually be impossible; a special, exciting quality that makes something or someone different and better than others – Cambridge English Dictionary)   Fans will be hoping for a little more magic when Hall of Fame-bound New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Head Coach Bill Belichick and an array of talented receivers enter Gillette Stadium tonight in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Fans will be hoping Brady’s and Belichick’s seemingly special powers beat the Steelers in the AFC title game and once again bring the Pats to the Super Bowl. For more than a decade Brady and Belichick have provided New England Patriots fans with magicalĀ memories, including multiple Super Bowl championships setting…

New England Patriots – Protect Tom Brady

Posted on January 26, 2016

Good decision! Protect #TomBrady – Patriots fire offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo – — newsandviewsjb (@newsandviewsjb) January 26, 2016   Commentary by Jacqueline Bennett   New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took some 20 hits – yes, it was painful to watch – twenty hits in the AFC championship game loss Sunday against the Denver Broncos, as has been noted in multiple stories. It is said to be a record. I think a couple University of Connecticut players from back in the day when I attended – even at this point in time – could have done a better job protecting Brady. News came yesterday that after what has been described as an “epic failure” by the offensive line, Patriots offensive…

Wicked Disappointing – Patriots/Redskins Game Not Aired

Posted on November 9, 2015

Write-up & Photo by Jacqueline Bennett   Tom Brady and the New England Patriots beat the Washington Redskins 27-10 Sunday, November 8, at Gillette Stadium. This was a game that took place in New England and at last check Connecticut is indeed a New England state. Nutmeggers fought as Minutemen in the American Revolutionary War. In fact, the Connecticut state hero is Nathan Hale, hung by the British while on an intelligence gathering mission for the Continental Army during the revolution. His famous last words – “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country”.   Yet, FOX 61 chose to air a game scheduled to be played by a New York team on Sunday rather than one…

Tom Brady & the New England Patriots Tonight at Foxborough – As It Should Be

Posted on September 10, 2015

Commentary by Jacqueline Bennett Quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are set to take the field at Gillette Stadium tonight in Foxborough, Massachusetts for the first regular season game – as it should be. Brady will be there in uniform suited up to play when the banner is raised for the Patriots’ last season Super Bowl victory.   After the Super Bowl honors, certainly a win would be nice. Regardless of the score at the end of the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers however, tonight is a triumph for Brady who stuck to his principles. The Hall of Fame bound QB refused to be bullied into accepting an unjust suspension from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and refused to compromise his Constitutional…

Posted on May 12, 2015

  Commentary by Jacqueline Bennett     ******************** UPDATE Disappointed in Robert Kraft's decision not to fight NFL sanctions reportedly absent hard evidence, and given their inequity. — newsandviewsjb (@newsandviewsjb) May 20, 2015 ******************** Statement from Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft via @patriots — newsandviewsjb (@newsandviewsjb) May 12, 2015     I will be ordering my “FREE BRADY” t-shirt later this morning but first I want to thank New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft for his statement following the announcement of a four-game suspension for star quarterback Tom Brady. It is easy to be in someone’s corner in the good times but the measure of character and loyalty is standing with them through the tough times.   “Tom Brady has our…

If Tom Brady is Suspended – Boycott the Game

Posted on May 8, 2015

Commentary by Jacqueline Bennett newsandviewsjb.comĀ    I believe in fair play. I believe in living by a code of honesty and personal integrity.   I also believe that a whole lot of envious folks have been gunning for Tom Brady. As the New England Patriots’ star quarterback Brady has led the NFL team to multiple Super Bowl victories.   According to an Associated Press report, speaking at Salem State University in Massachusetts yesterday, during a previously scheduled ‘question & answer’ session, Brady was quoted as saying, “As a human being, you care about what people think. I think as a public figure you learn not everyone is going to like you …. Good, bad or indifferent there are a lot of people who don’t…

Write-up by Jacqueline Bennett   Another chapter has been added to the storied history of Fenway Park.   What better way to launch the April 13, 2015 Red Sox season home opener at Fenway, “America’s oldest ballpark”, than to have New England Patriots Super Bowl MVP, Hall of Fame bound quarterback Tom Brady, toss out the ceremonial first pitch. The video, that can be viewed in the tweet below, is posted on and was shown on this morning’s NESN “Update”.   Brady caps pregame ceremonies with first pitch via @mlb — newsandviewsjb (@newsandviewsjb) April 14, 2015   Wearing a Rex Sox cap, Brady made the throw which turned out to be a grounder to the Sox’ David Ortiz.
