In this episode of the Pats Blitz Podcast, Chris and Steven are joined by Jerry Thornton from Barstool Sports. Jerry is also a great writer about all things New England Patriots, and has two books so far to his credit: Five Rings, and From Darkness to Dynasty. While Christmas season is over, make sure to grab yourself a copy!

Chris and Steven talk with Jerry about how his career as a writer started, and his thoughts on the Patriots heading into the playoffs. Some of the topics covered in their convo are as follows:

  • Who has impressed him in the Patriots secondary? Spoiler: Stephon Gilmore is one of the standouts.
  • When his career started, did he ever imagine being as popular as he is now? Short answer no, but you can get the full answer below.
  • Is there a team in the AFC that scares him in the playoffs? No, there isn’t a clear-cut favorite to win the conference, according to Jerry.
