Germantown Academy coach Matt Dence saw something special brewing in his quarterback Kyle McCloskey during practice last week. So about 20 minutes before kickoff Saturday at Springside Chestnut Hill, Dence predicted a positive outcome. "I think Kyle is going to have a big game," Dence said. "Last week was his best week of practice. " McCloskey didn't disappoint. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound junior accounted for 308 total yards in the Patriots' 21-12 triumph in the Inter-Ac League opener.

On the football field, sometimes beauty is in the eye of whichever sideline you're standing on. On Friday, Prep Charter's Karamo Dioubate and Germantown Academy's Kwasi Ampomah clashed like titans, but neither coaching staff could agree on a winner. Dioubate is a 6-foot-4, 278-pound two-way dump truck committed to Penn State. Ampomah is a 6-foot, 210-pound defensive end built for speed. Truth be told, both bested each other plenty. Ampomah and the Patriots, however, got the last laugh.

IF YOU'RE not exhausted by the continuing non-dramatics surrounding Deflategate, you're either a Patriots fan, a Patriots hater or an idiot. Insert punch line. The insulting irrelevance of the offense - because that's what it was - is exceeded only by the astounding arrogance of Tom Brady in his pursuit of a degree of exoneration. That's what this really is. Tom Brady believes he is bigger than the system; better than the system. Granted, the system is flawed . . . but no more flawed for Brady than for anyone else.

MALCOLM JENKINS said something last week that offered an interesting prism through which to view the Eagles' frenetic offseason. "Look at New England," the safety said. "It's always about the team first. They obviously have one of the best quarterbacks on their team, but when you look at their roster, they move people in and out, plug people in and out, because they have a way that they do things. The Patriot Way. That's how they win. I think that's what Chip is trying to do here.

PATRIOTS COACH Bill Belichick doesn't play favorites. No exceptions. According to a report, he banished cornerback Malcolm Butler from the field the last two weeks for showing up late for the team's first OTA. Butler, you'll remember, was the hero of the Patriots' 28-24 Super Bowl win over the Seahawks last season. The Seahawks had driven 79 yards on seven plays to the Patriots' 1-yard line. With 26 seconds left, Butler intercepted a pass by Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson to seal the victory.

Gov. Christie hasn't negotiated with other countries or shaped foreign policy. But he does claim one resumé detail to distinguish himself on national security ahead of a likely 2016 presidential run: the Patriot Act. Even as Congress scales back the law, Christie has been arguing forcefully for the tools given to law enforcement and intelligence agencies after 9/11 as crucial to prosecuting terrorists. Yet the importance of the Patriot Act in Christie's tenure as a prosecutor is less clear than he asserts.

Nearly 14 years after the 9/11 attacks, this country's mood may have finally shifted from the pervasive fear that birthed the Patriot Act, which blithely ignored privacy laws to root out terrorist plots. That mood swing is reflected in Congress' expected approval of a Patriot Act replacement, the Freedom Act, which would stop the government's bulk collection of private telephone information. Instead, the National Security Agency and FBI would have to request that data from telecommunication companies that must retain such records.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said Monday that he would do "everything possible" to block renewal of the antiterrorism Patriot Act over the government's bulk collection of phone records. Speaking in front of Independence Hall, the Republican presidential candidate conceded that changing the policy or blocking reauthorization was unlikely. "I can delay it. I can force them to debate it so the public at large can know what they're doing," Paul said. "They have the votes inside the Beltway, but we have the votes outside the Beltway.

PHOENIX - New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, whose only two head coaching hires coached in the Super Bowl this year, is an admirer of Eagles coach Chip Kelly. "If I were an Eagle fan, I would be excited," Kraft said Monday at the annual NFL meeting. "He did an outstanding job in college. I know my head coach [Bill Belichick] has great respect for him. He's trying to put his stamp on what's going on there. This is a tough league, so there will be some challenges. But he's an exciting guy to be around.

Cornerback Bradley Fletcher, who bore much of the blame for the Eagles' porous pass defense last season, has signed a one-year contract with the New England Patriots, according to multiple reports. Fletcher, who played two years for the Eagles, will have a chance to compete for a starting role, according to ESPNBoston.com, which first reported the signing. The contract has a maximum value of $2.5 million, ESPN reported. Last season, Fletcher ranked 92d of 108 cornerbacks, according to the Pro Football Focus website.
