“Over the past decade and a half, the NFL world has come to know the Patriots as champions, an organization to emulate. It’s like everyone forgot the trials and tribulations it took to get there. Of course, Jerry hasn’t forgotten. That’s why this book is so great―an unfettered appreciation for the ugly, hilarious, sad, and tumultuous history of the Patriots. But seen through Jerry’s tortured and comical eyes. I love it!” (Ian Rapoport, NFL Media’s National Insider)
“Once upon a time, the Patriots didn’t have Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, Robert Kraft, or four Super Bowl rings. They were not a dynasty. They were dysfunctional. There is nobody better than Jerry Thornton, a lifetime member of Patriots Nation, to provide this very entertaining and funny account of the hopelessness that once defined New England’s football team. From Darkness to Dynasty is a must-read if you love the Patriots―or love to hate the Patriots.” (Gary Myers, author of Brady vs. Manning)
“Jerry Thornton resorted to cannibalism to survive the Rod Rust era and now bleeds every time Tom Brady suffers a paper cut. This intense loyalty to the Patriots helped launch Jerry from local blogger and stand-up comic to Boston sports media star, while endearing him to a generation of fans young and old. From Darkness to Dynasty proves that Jerry’s the real deal: a quick-witted fan forged in the comedic hell of the now-dynastic franchise’s laughably miserable early years.” (Kerry J. Byrne, founder, ColdHardFootballFacts.com and FootballNation.com)
“Jerry Thornton is the best Patriots writer in New England. He has been for a decade. There is nobody who knows the team better or expresses what it’s like to be a Patriots fan better than him. This book is vintage Thornton from start to finish. If you like the Patriots or even football, this is a must-read book, period.” (Dave Portnoy, Barstool Sports)
