The Gridiron & Beyond: Jeff Howe from The Athletic (Ep. 54)


This week on The Gridiron and Beyond, the voice of the New England Patriots, Bob Socci sits down with Jeff Howe, who talked about his experience covering the Pro Bowl amid the breaking news of Kobe Bryant’s death and the impact of it on the NFL stars he talked to.

They then transition to his recent work for The Athletic, including conversations with Stephon Gilmore, Matthew Slater and a division rival about their future as well as the future of Tom Brady.  Speaking of which, Jeff explains factors that will ultimately determine where Brady finishes his career.  

Finally, Bob & Jeff consider the challenges the Pats confront trying to offset the loss of Dante Scarnecchia and other coaches, while addressing questions at various position groups.
