I graduated in 2008 with a BA in English from the University of Southern Maine. I am presently the AFC East divisional blogger for Bleacher Report at www.bleacherreport.com/afceastblog
I started out as an editing intern here on Bleacher Report in 2009, and then became a New England Patriots Featured Columnist in January 2010. I have held positions with NESN (new media intern) and Cold, Hard Football Facts (Patriots beat writer/contributor). As of March 2013, I will also be a part-time Patriots blogger for Boston.com/The Boston Globe.
I co-host the PatsPropaganda and Frenz podcast with Mike Dussault of PatsPropaganda.com. Find the podcast here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/patspropaganda
I have had my work published or linked on many other sites, including National Football Post, CBSSports.com, Askmen.com, Patriots.com, ESPNBoston.com and more. I have also interviewed several players, including John Hannah, Troy Brown, Matt Light, Sterling Moore, Patrick Chung and others.
I am always available for radio appearances and collaborations for blog posts. Contact me via the above listed contact information for any inquiries.
Excellent article on Tom Brady. Well done.
I really like the idea of re-grading drafts, will you be doing more of those?
Congratulations of the Boston.com "Going Deep" blog. Great job.
Lets be Frenz... get it?!
You probably don't take requests but I just wanted to say that I would love to read a story from you about the impact (a healthy) Greg Jennings could have on the Dolphins offense. There has been hints of this deal for a long time and in an interview with dolphins.com yesterday he certainly seems very open to the idea of returning to play for Joe.
Lots of writers around here and other sites speculate about Jennings, Wallace etc coming to Miami but you provide great analysis in your articles so I would love to see your view on what Jennings could do for us, as it looks more and more likely that he will become our lead receiver next season.
Erik, what's your thoughts on the Pats' season? I enjoy reading your articles might I add.
No problem at all. Thanks for writing!
Thanks, and you're quite welcome!
I think you need to differentiate between what is best for the Jets as a team and what is best for Tim Tebow as an individual.
I think there are Tim Tebow fans who only care about Tim Tebow.
I can think of several scenarios where his success in the red zone could actually be very detrimental to the team.
And . . . not just Mark Sanchez.
What offensive unit does not want to cap things off with a touchdown ???
Pulling them for Tim Tebow and the wildcat offense in the red zone is going to create that all work and no reward feeling.
In my opinion . . . Mark Sanchez and HIS offense should be allowed to finalize their drive and punch it in.
Believe me, if the crowd starts chanting Tebow-Tebow . . . and Sanchez is robbed of the opportunity, I think this team is headed for big trouble.
Anyway . . .
I hope you enjoyed your time off.
Erik, you must be moving on up! I saw your Gostkowski article on ESPN Boston. Congrats, that's quite the achievement.
