Is Tom Brady the Best NFL QB Ever?

The Patriots’ 2012 season is over, and once again it’s time to ask the question: Is Tom Brady the best quarterback to ever play the game? There are many ways to rank the greatest QBs ever, most of them subjective, but what follows is an attempt to draw conclusions from the facts in order to rank Brady […]

Patriots Perspective: Why We Hate the New York Jets

The rivalry between the New York Jets and New England Patriots has gained intensity in recent years. Perhaps it was the dramatic departure of Eric Mangini that triggered the feud, or the spiced up media frenzy upon Rex Ryan’s arrival in New York. The players on the field have brought their own drama to the […]

Tony Romo: Destined for Greatness or Goatness?

Since he made his debut on Sunday night football in 2006 Tony Romo has been under intense scrutiny, the kind of scrutiny that comes hand in hand with being quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. Upon taking the starting job from Drew Bledsoe, Romo’s on the field performance has been picked apart by every so-called sports […]

Randy Moss Wants to Play for Patriots: What Happened to Traditional Retirement?

According to Pro Football Talk, (retired?) wide receiver Randy Moss wants to return to the Patriots. That’s a little surprising. Considering that Moss presumably called it quits due to lack of interest, Randy probably doesn’t have all that much leverage in choosing where (and if) he wants to play at all. And in case anyone […]

Brett Favre to the Dolphins? Not So Fast.

We’ve played this game before. Brett Favre has already retired at least three teams. We’ve had multiple articles about these alleged retirements, and subsequent comebacks. He’s taken the media, football fans, and a few teams for a ride before. He’s doing it again — without even trying. The latest team interested in the 41-year-old Favre, […]

Drew Bledsoe Turned Down Role In There’s Something About Mary

They say you learn something new everyday. The Farelly brothers, who have directed such comedic gems as Dumb and Dumber, Me, Myself, & Irene, and Shallow Hall, were guests on ESPN’s First Take on Tuesday ahead of this week’s release of Hall Pass (which also looks funny). They revealed that the unforgettable part played by […]

Video: Fake Brett Favre ‘What Should I Do?’ LeBron James Nike Commercial

Remember LeBron’s “What Should I Do?” Nike commercial? Made you puke, right? Remember Brett Favre’s sexting scandal? Jenn Sterger? How about his four retirements? His Wrangler Jeans commercials? That’s all now been combined into one funny parody. Check it out: (NSFW: Sexually eplicit language is used in the video)

Poll Results: The Average Fan Just Doesn’t like Tom Brady

Nearly a week and a half into the elongated Super Bowl discussion and one of the many pointless, yet entertaining, topics has risen. The Hollywood Reporter, conducted a poll consisting of Americans, asking which player do you dislike the most. Breathe. Ready? By no surprise, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was ranked in the […]

Lo, How Things Have Changed

Being as big a nerd as I am a sports fan, I used to love shopping for school supplies before the new school year began. Before beginning the eighth grade, I needed to buy five different notebooks, one for each subject. I picked nondescript Trapper Keepers for the first four, then decided to live a […]

A Patriots-Packers Retrospective

The New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers have played nine times since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Counting Super Bowl XXXI, the Packers have won five games. The two teams are split 2-2 for games played in Foxborough. Let’s look back at all nine match-ups, ranked semi-arbitrarily by order of importance and quality. 9) […]

PATS on the Back: Week 8 vs. Minnesota

6-1, the best record in the NFL. Who would’ve believed that a team that lost their best cornerback (Leigh Bodden) and one of their most reliable defensive lineman (Ty Warren) in the preseason, then lost their third down back (Kevin Faulk) to season-ending injury, then traded away a former first rounder (Laurence Maroney) and a […]

Strong Running Game Leads Patriots Past Vikings; Favre Injured in Fourth

BenJarvus Green-Ellis leaped over the back of blocking guard Dan Connolly, tumbling head over heels. When he came down, the Patriots had a two-score lead with less than two minutes left in the game. Green-Ellis ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns- the first multiple-touchdown game of his career- Sunday, and the New England Patriots […]

Patriots Keys to Victory: Week 8 vs. Vikings

Sometimes it helps to be good and lucky. The Patriots (5-1) found that out last week, squeaking out a 23-20 victory over the hapless San Diego Chargers (2-5). A win is a win in the NFL, however, and the Patriots will take all the wins they can get in what is shaping up to be […]

Who Makes Up Your “Mt. Rushmore of Hatred?”

Hatred. We all have it, whether we admit it or not. As sports fans, we’re fueled by hatred. There wouldn’t be rivalries if it weren’t for hatred. We wouldn’t get so emotional after big games, win or lose, if it weren’t for hatred of the opponent. This week, two of the world’s most hated athletes […]

Brett Favre Ankle Injury, Not Sexting, Threatens Streak

Brett Favre has been in the news a lot lately, and if you live in the Boston area, you’re going to hear even more about him over the next week as Sunday’s Patriots-Vikings game approaches. Last week, he met with NFL officials and admitted leaving those ridiculous voice mails on Jenn Sterger’s phone in 2008. […]
