It appears the Patriots and Colts both want special teams coordinator Joe Judge. New England is “making a play” to retain Judge, Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reports.

Judge has interest from new Colts head coach Josh McDaniels.

Since Judge’s contract has expired, he has his choice of where to coach next season.

Judge, 36, has spent the past three seasons as the Patriots’ special teams coordinator. He was the team’s assistant special teams coach the three years before that.

Judge previously spent three seasons on Nick Saban’s staff at Alabama.

Adhering to the Patriot Way, Judge talked around his future last week at the Super Bowl, saying he hadn’t looked past the Eagles. Now that the game is over, though, Judge is deciding his next move.

  1. Why exactly would he leave NE to go to Indy? Maybe he’s hoping the Patriots will offer him the same or more money than Indy will.

  2. Rats jumping ship. Lady better hope McDaniels is more careful the second time around on his own. But, I’m sure Bill and Tom have spoken with Josh about the importance of being discreet with the videotapes.

    The Patriots are 2 plays away from being 3-5 in Super Bowls Atlanta n Seattle gave them gifts

    —————————
    Or you could say they are 3 plays away from being undefeated. Both statements are equally true, and equally meaningless.

    Also I am assuming you were leaving out their two appearances before Brady so I did too.

  5. People forget but Collinsworth mentioned it for the first time in 10 years.

    The last play of the Giants SB win in 2007, the ball hit Moss’s fingertips. One inch from the greatest completion ever.

    I’m not even remotely a Pats fan (or Eagles for that matter) obviously, but breaks and just misses could make the Pats in less SB’s, more SB’s, more wins, less wins blah blah.

    They’ve won a lot and deserve to be the best NFL team of the past generation.

    PS: I think McDaniels will be smart and not pilfer anyone from the Pats. They took him back when no one else wanted him. Don’t be a Mangini and bite the hand that fed you.

  6. Both statements are equally true, and equally meaningless

    I notice he/it specializes in the latter.
