This space has been used to be highly critical of ESPN before.

I hate Jonas Gray.

"BRADY BEATS MANNING ... AGAIN!" "GRONK PUTS ON A SHOW!"

Josh Bordner looked as if he was going through confession more so than conducting a press conference at Alumni Stadium.

Here's a five-point plan for how the Jets could possibly, maybe, somehow, perhaps beat the Patriots in Foxboro Thursday night (even though they won't).

The phrase "Pyrrhic victory" leapt to mind. Sure, a 37-22 win for the Patriots over the Bills was worthy of celebration Sunday. After all, some in Buffalo were calling this the biggest Bills game in 16 years. So to dance out of Orchard Park with a 'W' after enduring that electrified atmosphere seemed worthy of applause.

We can debate (and boy, have we ever) how good Logan Mankins may be going forward.

The NFL finishes its first quarter Monday night with the Patriots-Chiefs game in Kansas City. And a common complaint from New England has been: "We don't know who the Patriots are so far!"

When it comes to the 2015 Boston Red Sox, the more clarity we get, the more confusion we get.

Well, the kickers were good.

The address of the Watergate Hotel is listed as 2650 Virginia Avenue NW in Washington, D.C. But it may actually be 345 Park Avenue in New York City.

The tweet must have come after Knowshon Moreno gave the Dolphins a 30-20 lead over the Patriots in the fourth quarter: @TimBenzWEEI You're such a homer Benz. How could you think these scrubs can win 11 games.

I admit that it's been more than 20 years since I called New England home. But now that I'm back, one thing that I have to ask is: What did college sports do to piss off everyone around here so much?
Tim Benz

Patriots fans don't have to go far in the NFL history books to find a point of comparison when it comes to the departure of Logan Mankins via a trade to the Buccaneers last week.
Tim Benz

There have been 15 Super Bowls played since the dawn of the new millennium. The New England Patriots have been in five of them. They've won three of them. That's a pretty god success rate, wouldn't you say? In fact, no NFL fan base should feel more secure in its own skin than New England's.
Tim Benz

I don't know anything about dirt-track racing. There. With that statement out of the way, we can continue, right?

I'll warn you in advance, if you are easily offended, you should stop reading this column right now. Seriously. Stop reading it. Because you are going to get offended.

Can something really be called a "conspiracy theory" if everyone is talking openly about it? For instance, the notion that the Red Sox traded Jon Lester with the full intent of signing him back in the offseason after acquiring pieces from the team that is renting his services in the short term. Folks, that's not a conspiracy theory anymore. That's just a theory.
