2012 Patriots Defensive Line Preview: Who Lines Up With Vince Wilfork?

As the summer months move along, we are getting closer to the kick off of the 2012-2013 NFL season. The Patriots returned to the Super Bowl for the fifth time in the Belichick era this past season, only to lose a disappointingly once again to the New York Giants. Yes, those same New York Giants […]

Patriots 2012 Off-Season Priorities: Defensive Ends

In an off-season that perhaps is even more exciting than last year’s lockout-shortened free agency period, the Patriots have plenty of needs. None are bigger, however, than wide receiver and defensive end. Let’s now take a look at defensive end. You will hear people say over the next few days that the Patriots don’t really […]

Tim Tebow Prays for Injured Andre Carter

Tim Tebow mania has swept across the NFL. It’s pretty simple: you either love the guy, or you’re tired of hearing about him. Whatever the case may be, the Broncos quarterback — and devout Christian — reached his hand down onto the injured Andre Carter prayed for the veteran defensive end. Carter shared his gratitude […]

Up to the Task: Mark Anderson Moves into Starting Role

When you’re top pass rusher, on the league’s worst defense, goes down with an injury it’s easy to panic. So, naturally when it was evident that Andre Carter would miss the rest of the season an uneasy feeling hovered over Patriots nation. But, New England has a viable option waiting in the wings: Mark Anderson. It’s not […]

Report: Andre Carter’s Injury Will Require Surgery

It didn’t look good when the Patriots leading pass rusher went down early Sunday afternoon. The news remained bleak following the Patriots 41-23 win over the Denver Broncos. ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported that Andre Carter’s agent, Carl Poston, said Carter has a quad-related injury “that will require surgery.” There is no timetable on Carter’s return, […]

New England Patriots Report Card: Week 11

The Kansas City Chiefs threw everything but the kitchen sink (unless you count Jerrell Powe) at the New England Patriots Monday night, hoping to disrupt Tom Brady early on and keep the game close late. It worked for about 20 minutes, but the Patriots eventually solved the Chiefs’ defense. The end result: a 34-3 Patriot […]

Patriots Will Attempt to Build Momentum Against Chiefs

After snapping a two-game skid last Sunday against the Jets, the Patriots will try to start a winning streak when they face the 4-5 Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night. The Chiefs will be without starting quarterback Matt Cassel due to a hand injury that will require the former Patriot clipboard-holder to undergo surgery. Pittsburgh graduate […]

Sack Master: Andre Carter a Success in New England

Few of Bill Belichick’s 2011 off-season acquisitions have worked out. Chad Ochocinco has barely contributed. Albert Haynesworth is gone. The Patriots rotating cast of defensive backs has quite possibly been replaced by cardboard cutouts. The same can’t be said of Andre Carter, who on Wednesday was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week. The award […]

New England Patriots Report Card: Week 10

After weeks of offensive malaise and defensive incompetency, the New England Patriots returned to form Sunday, beating the New York Jets, 37-16. Tom Brady and his receivers picked the defense apart while a team of replacements and nobodies held the Jets’ offense completely in check. The Patriots regained sole possession of the AFC East with […]

New England Patriots Report Card: Week 8

I don’t know why, but football players more than any other athlete legitimately rally around negative press. So when the media almost universally gave Sunday’s New England Patriots-Pittsburgh Steelers game to the visiting Patriots, a Steelers victory became a near-guarantee. And the Steelers won in truly convincing fashion, doubling up the Patriots in both total […]

New England Patriots Report Card: Week 6

For the first 25 minutes the New England Patriots had the ball against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6, they played sloppy, uncreative football. But down three points with 2:31 left in the game, Tom Brady led a precision air-strike that culminated in Brady’s 8-yard bullet to Aaron Hernandez in the end zone, completing yet […]

More DL Depth: Patriots sign Gerard Warren, Andre Carter

The New England Patriots continued to revamp its defensive line over the weekend, re-signing defensive lineman Gerard Warren and agreeing to terms with free agent Andre Carter. Warren played on the Patriots’ defensive line in 2010, registering 3.5 sacks and 17 solo tackles in 10 starts as an injury replacement for Ty Warren. Warren, the […]
