Former Patriots Coordinator Bill O’Brien Reportedly Next Head Coach of Texans

ESPN is reporting that former Patriots offensive coordinator and current Penn State coach Bill O’Brien is going to become the next head coach of the Houston Texans. These promotions of former Patriots coaches always makes me wonder how Bill Belichick reacts to his former coordinators becoming his equal (if there is such a thing with […]

Are the Patriots Still Legitimate Super Bowl Contenders Without TE Rob Gronkowski?

The New England Patriots may have won their game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, but they suffered a devastating injury to one of the most important players on the team. Star tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered a season-ending injury and was placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee. […]

Patriots Lose Gronk But Complete Miraculous Comeback to Beat Browns, 27-26

For the third straight week, the New England Patriots overcame a halftime deficit to emerge with another win, even after Rob Gronkowski exited in the third quarter with what is feared to be a torn ACL. This time the Patriots escaped by beating the Cleveland Browns 27-26 on a Tom Brady touchdown pass to Danny […]

Report: Patriots Eyeing Browns’ No. 6 Draft Pick

Let the trade speculation begin. According to Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe the Patriots have talked with the Cleveland Browns to trade up to the No. 6 spot.

Patriots Keys to Victory: Week 10 vs. Steelers

The New England Patriots’ (6-2) five-game winning streak came to an abrupt halt last weekend in Cleveland, where they suffered a 34-14 shellacking at the hands of the Browns. Bill Belichick obviously didn’t read last week’s Keys to Victory column. His defense allowed Peyton Hillis to rush for 184 yards on 29 carries, and the offense […]

Congratulations, Eric Mangini

It’s all about the little victories in Cleveland these days. So congratulations, Eric Mangini. You know you deserve it. After beating the Patriots in a massively important week nine game, Mangini’s Cleveland Browns move to 3-5, just a shade above the NFL’s third-biggest disappointment, the Cincinnati Bengals, and far away from the Steelers and Ravens.  And […]

Browns Turn Patriots Black and Blue

Best record in the NFL? Up against Cleveland, an entire city which hasn’t won anything since ever? No problem, right? Apparently not. With a performance like that, the New England fan base had better hope that the Patriots took Cleveland for granted, because if not, it’ll be a long eight weeks. In Cleveland on Sunday, […]

Patriots Keys to Victory: Week 9 vs. Browns

Thanks to a 28-18 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, the New England Patriots (6-1) own the best record in the NFL heading into their game with the Cleveland Browns (2-5) this Sunday. At first glance, this looks like an easy matchup for the Patriots. The Browns are currently tied for last place in the AFC […]

2010 NFL Predictions: AFC North

No one really knows what to expect from the Cincinnati Bengals or the Pittsburgh Steelers.  The former has a lot of potential and an equal number of question marks, and the latter is coming off its biggest disappointment in the decade amidst rape allegations and a slap-on-the-wrist suspension for its quarterback. At least we can rely on […]

AFC North Fantasy Preview

Into the second week of August we go, where NFL teams will all finally see action this coming weekend to open their preseason slate of meaningless games. We got our first taste of football season with Sunday night’s Hall of Fame game, which featured the Dallas Cowboys topping the AFC North’s defending divisional champs, the […]

Tom Brady Not Talking About Contract Extension

Tom Brady is entering the final year of his contract, in which he is due to make $6.5 million ($3.5 million in salary, and the rest as a roster bonus). He earned quite a bit in the early part of his contract, so he is no doubt looking for a bigger payday. Rumors have circulated […]

The Gerard Warren-Richard Seymour Connection

Recently signed defensive lineman Gerard Warren said the decision to sign with the Patriots came after advice from an unlikely source. Warren inked his deal with the Pats on April 24th, directly after the last round of the NFL Draft. Last season, Warren played on the Oakland Raiders’ defensive line next to former Patriot Richard […]

Crumpler, 32, is expected to ink an official deal with the Patriots later this week. The Patriots released free agent Benjamin Watson, who signed with […]

NFL Free Agency is Anyone’s Game

This has been some NFL offseason. Well, not quite for Patriots fans. I mean, solving the Vince Wilfork issue was a big accomplishment, as they got their man in the middle, but now need to look for some complementary pieces. They might have missed out on some big name players, but there are more fish […]

Stallworth to be Reinstated, Pats Looking for a Trade?
