The speculation started when the Patriots PR machine posted a picture of Tom Brady with two fingers on his throwing hand taped together. Sprinkle in a Patriots mid-week injury report that Brady was dealing with a shoulder injury, and add a dash of Brady’s well-documented struggles during the 2013 season, and you have a recipe […]
We’ve passed the mythical midpoint of the 13-week fantasy regular season and if you’ve avoided major injuries consider yourself fortunate. Injury to one means opportunity for another. Nick Foles, Joseph Randle, and Keenan Allen are examples of those stepping in for the wounded with a chance to shine in Week 7. This week puts New […]
Six weeks are gone in the NFL schedule, and plenty of teams are still shifting around, especially in the AFC. New England recovered enough to topple New Orleans with five seconds left. The Jaguars, Giants and Buccaneers are still win-less, while only divisional rivals Kansas City and Denver remain unbeaten. Both Dallas and Philadelphia are […]
It seems like only yesterday we were all excited for the NFL season to finally begin. Now, it’s already a quarter over. The season has already been filled with some massive surprises. The Falcons are 1-3. The Chiefs are 4-0. New England is working smoothly with its rookie receivers. The Texans are sliding. Detroit is […]
Looks like Deion Branch is not the only NFL player to publicly show support for former Patriots tight end, Aaron Hernandez. Hernandez, who has been jailed without bail pending trial on a first degree murder, is receiving support from some old teammates and no, it is not Tim Tebow. Twins Mike and Maurkice Pouncey, members […]
It’s the final week of the regular season and the top three seeds in the AFC are still wide open. Among those fighting for bye weeks and home field advantage are the New England Patriots, and though they’ll need some help to nab a top seed, their first and foremost order of business is to […]
After having been seen leaving Sunday’s game with crutches and a protective walking boot, Julian Edelman saw his season officially come to an end when the New England Patriots placed the wide receiver and punt returner on injured reserve on Tuesday. To replace him on the roster, the Patriots signed wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth.
Tom Brady and the Patriots travel to Miami on Sunday for a showdown with the Dolphins, a game that could wrap up the AFC East for New England. On the surface, this would appear to be a classic trap game. With Houston (10-1, 1st in the AFC) and San Francisco (8-2-1, 1st in the NFC […]
New England Patriots running back Brandon Bolden has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy. The substance he used is unknown. Bolden is currently suffering from a knee injury that occurred against the Seattle Seahawks. The injury has kept him out of the last two games as well as practice […]
The bye-week could not have come at a better time for the banged up New England Patriots. With injuries to Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Logan Mankins, Brandon Spikes, and a good amount of the secondary, a bye could be just what the doctor ordered for the second half of the season. The Patriots stand at […]
We’re halfway through the season for many teams, and many divisions are starting to open up. The Wildcard races are still pretty interesting, being continually shaken up with new teams. Some teams are in a tailspin, while others are picking up steam. In the ever volatile season we’re seeing so far, let’s look at what […]
Seven weeks into the season, and there’s still no shortage of dramatic games. The Patriots barely avoided another upset. So did the Giants, for that matter. Houston took command of the AFC. San Francisco took over their division. The Wildcard situation, tight as it is, makes for a constantly shifting group of teams. With everything […]
It just went from bad to worse for Chad Johnson. The Dolphins have released Johnson, less than 24 hours after the wide receiver was arrested for head-butting his wife, Evelyn Lozada. The Patriots released Johnson earlier in the offseason when he was still named Ochocinco.
As confirmed by the “Ochocinco News Network,” former Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins. “The 6 time Pro Bowler will now get a chance to finish his career in his home state,” the OCNN said. Ochocinco, a Miami native, caught just 15 passes for 276 yards and […]
Humorist Dave Barry once wrote that Harvard University “for more than three centuries has produced graduates who, no matter what their philosophical differences, are all dedicated to the lofty goal of subtly letting you know that they went to Harvard.” Former Harvard Crimson and current Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick hasn’t needed to purse his […]
