ESPN.com Page2 has a feature today listing the 10 worst championship teams of all time. Weighing in at # 6 is….you guessed it, your 2001 New England Patriots. The last line in their paragraph…..”Is anyone betting on a repeat?”

If you’re eagerly awaiting the release of the newest Patriots DVD “Three Games to Glory”, you probably want to know just when it will be available. You can pre-order it on Patriots.com, as mentioned here earlier, however, no where on the site does it give the release date. After consulting with someone from the Patriots Proshop, I was told it would be coming out “Mid May”. If you pre-order now, your credit card will probably be charged right away, but expect to wait 3-4 weeks or so before you actually receive the DVD. This is a first for NFL Films, is a limited edition, and should sell out quickly.
Derek Lowe made the rounds yesterday, appearing on WEEI and WWZN back to back in the afternoon, then going on NESN’s “Extra Innings” following the Red Sox loss last night to Baltimore. On WWZN he mentioned getting a nice note from former GM Dan Duquette, who said he “loved” Lowe’s new change up. Lowe might be the only one in the Red Sox organization to be glad to hear from Duquette. In John Molori’s latest “Media Blitz” column in the Eagle Tribune, (You have to search for it) he included this snippet from opening day: “The Werner-Henry group is trying to erase the negative paranoia of ex-GM Dan Duquette. They even erased Duquette himself. Wrobleski said that on Opening Day, Duquette tried to enter the Red Sox luxury suite, but was escorted away.” Ouch. “escorted away”?
