The Patriots really don't have a home-field disadvantage -- as they're proud of pointing out, they have the best home record in the NFL since 2002 (74-15; the second-best team, Baltimore, is 61-21) -- but there's been a lot of talk hereabouts about the lack of atmosphere during games at Gillette.
Troy Brown thinks he knows why.
"I really do think that they can do something with the music in Gillette Stadium," the former Patriots wide receiver said on 'Patriots Wednesday Live', later adding:
"It's a problem when you have visiting players commenting about the music . . . Several times, there've been several players who come up to me and said, 'Man, what's up with y'all's music?' . . . Guys have a huge problem with that. You know when the visiting team's commenting on it, that it's not good. All you can do is shake your head and say, 'I agree'. "
So he's offering his services as stadium DJ.
"I think I can do a much better job than what they've been doing over there."
