From Wide Receiver to Movie Theater: Ex-Pat Brandon Lloyd Chooses Acting Over NFL

With the New England Patriots’ rookie wide receivers suffering from a case of the dropsies, Bill Belichick (as well as a number of other NFL teams) reportedly reached out to former Patriot Brandon Lloyd about a comeback tour. Last year’s somewhat disappointing receiver rejected all offers, apparently “neither physically nor mentally ready to continue,” according […]

Bill Belichick, Patriots No Longer the Smartest Guys in the Room

Listen, you can’t screw up a season as bad as the Patriots have screwed this one up so far and we are in week 2 and they haven’t lost. Before the dust settles, this may be on par with the Red Sox decision to hire Bobby Valentine after their infamous collapse in 2011. This was […]

Week 2 NFL Preview: Patriots vs. Jets

If you asked me to preview this game a week ago, I would have chuckled while predicting a laughable score in the Patriots favor. Today, there is no way I can do that. The NFL is a crazy league. The change of feeling has more to do with what I saw from the Pats than what […]

Week 1 NFL Preview: New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills

This is it. Week one of the NFL season has finally arrived. It’s a bittersweet time since it also means the end of summer.

So let’s recap who got the ax and other Patriots roster moves going into Week 1 of the 2013 NFL season:

Tim Tebow Tweets His Thanks to the Patriots

You have to hand it to him – the kid’s got spirit, and I’m not talking about the religious kind (though he most likely has that too). After being released by the New England Patriots on Saturday as part of the final cuts to get down to the 53-man roster, Tim Tebow wouldn’t let the […]

Patriots Cut Tim Tebow

It’s official. Tim Tebow is no longer a member of the Patriots! The Patriots have finally come to their senses and released their third string quarterback according to ESPN’s Adan Schefter.

Should Tim Tebow Make the Patriot’s Final 53-Man Roster?

Third string quarterback Tim Tebow has received plenty of attention and scrutiny this preseason as a member of the Patriots. As one of the most polarizing players in the league, some are rooting for Tebow to make the team while others are repulsed by the idea of Tebow playing quarterback in the NFL. Now it […]

Curse of the Cornerback? Patriots Release Ras-I Dowling

Curse of the Bambino. Curse of the Billy Goat. Buffalo. The Madden Curse. Cleveland. SI Cover Jinx. Seattle. Steve Bartman. Cleveland again. There have been a number of famous curses in the realm of sports over the centuries (okay, maybe that only applies to the Cubs) (sorry, couldn’t resist). The New England Patriots could be […]

2013 Fantasy Football Preview: Patriots Edition

Bill Belichick is notorious for giving Fantasy Football owners headaches season after season. This is because you never know which player(s) he is going to revolve his game plan around. His system is designed to find a mismatch, not pad anyone’s stats. Fantasy owners shouldn’t count on this strategy changing any time soon. In his […]

Video: Vince Wilfork, New Patriots Placekicker?

If Stephen Gostkowski thought he had no competition as the only kicker on the New England Patriots roster, he might want to think again. For Tom Brady’s birthday, Vince Wilfork is looking to see how he can contribute on the offensive side of the line of scrimmage. “Wilfork, DL,” apparently no longer suffices in Patriots’ […]

2013 Patriots Position Preview: Defensive Line

For the past five years, the New England Patriots have relied on their offensive firepower to be one of the best teams in the NFL. This year, however, Tom Brady will be without some of his favorite targets, and it’s likely that the defense will have to carry a much greater load. Only two seasons […]
