About

I am a Journalism major at the University of New Hampshire with a passion for the game of football.

Here at Bleacher Report, I served as a New England Patriots featured columnist from February of 2012 to July of 2013. I graduated from the site's Writing Internship Program in August of 2012.

In March of 2013, I became a staff writer for NEPatriotsDraft.com. And two months later, I began contributing content to Yahoo! Sports.

If you'd like to contact me about an article or a writing opportunity, you can reach me at obthomas92@gmail.com.

Care to hear my thoughts on the Patriots, the NFL and the NFL draft? on Twitter.

Thanks for reading.

    Hey Oliver,

    The lock would have come from having the article or article history open in a tab. If you had neither open, I'm not sure what happened! I'm letting an editor know the coast is clear, and we'll get it handled as soon as she's done with another story, it looks like.

    Thanks again, and go Pats,

    -Tim

    I figured if they could contain Foster and force Schaub to throw to AJ (Pats cover 1 press defence) it would create problems.

    Swanny's prediction: Pats 31 SF 24 .....this one is a little closer

    No worries, Oliver. For some reason headlines keep getting assigned with ampersands even though copy editors get told to remove them - someday we'll manage to get everyone on the same page!

    Hey, no sweat. More people should do that when they enjoy reading something. That's the criteria to me, whether or not I enjoy it.I don't wait for someone to turn a phrase like mark Twain to click the props button.

    You're welcome. And note you should never be weary of removing those quote marks; that's part of B/R style so you should never get flagged for that. Check out this link: http://blog.bleacherreport.com/2011/05/17/writing-tip-use-block-quotes-wisely-and-liberally/

    oliver,
    Any change in your Jermain Cunningham prediction? Apparently he has been beasting at camp and he won an offseason an award, something B.B. doesn't appear to take lightly. I think he will find a place as a rotational depth player at end, especially as the season progresses. Your thoughts?
