With the Super Bowl rings now handed out to last year’s championship team, and OTA’s underway, eyes are turning to what kind of squad the Patriots will put on the field this fall. In New England, it seems there are always questions about what kind of team will be assembled. Bob Kraft and Bill Belichick […]

Wilfork Signs with Texans, aka Patriots South

For those of you reserving a place for Vince Wilfork to make a stirring return to the New England Patriots, you’ll have to find a different 325-pound defensive lineman to fill that hole in your heart. After 11 years with the Patriots, bookended by two Super Bowl championships, Wilfork has signed a two-year, $9 million contract with the […]

Countdown to NFL Free Agency: Will the Patriots Re-Sign Revis?

The clock is ticking. At 4:00pm today, NFL free agency officially begins, and the flurry of free agent “signings” that have leaked over the last three days during the “legal tampering period” will become official. Of course, as it’s known in New England, this afternoon is also known as Revis Watch, as 4:00pm marks the time that Darrelle […]

Super Bowl XLIX Fever Strikes as Patriots and Seahawks Kickoff Approaches

It’s here. It’s finally here. After two long weeks, the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks are finally set to kickoff later today for the Vince Lombardi trophy.

Deflategate? NFL Investigating Under-Inflated Footballs Used in AFC Title Game

The New England Patriots are under investigation by the National Football League for under inflating the footballs used in the AFC Championship game where they beat the Indianapolis Colts 45-7. Reports as to whom brought forward the Patriots possibly deflating the footballs during last night’s game are not clear. The story was first reported by […]

Belichick Says Clock Management Goes Exactly to Plan to Beat Ravens; Wait, What?

Duron Harmon closed the gap quickly, ranging in from center field to position himself perfectly to intercept Joe Flacco’s deep pass looking for Torrey Smith in the end zone and close out a nerve-wracking, come-from-behind win for the New England Patriots. Or so it seemed. Instead of running out the clock with the two minute […]

Colts or Broncos: Should the Patriots Care Who They Play in AFC Championship?

After a rousing, back-and-forth, come-from-behind victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday, the New England Patriots will host next week’s AFC Championship for the right to play in Super Bowl XLIV.

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 15

Just two games remain in the season. Still, though, several teams remain alive. Even in the NFC, with the way so many of the best teams are playing, one loss means the difference between #2 and #6. In the AFC, the strong North Division, Johnny Football excepted of course, is threatening to put three teams […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 14

Just three games remain in the season. No one clear contender has emerged, and the AFC Wildcard hunt could especially turn upside down in the next three weeks. The AFC South will now mathematically be won by a team that finishes .500 or worse. Despite leading the NFC, questions remain about Arizona’s ability to compete […]

Video: Tom Brady, Professional Telemarketer and Part-Time Fantasy Trash Talker?

Thank Belichick that Tom Brady recovered from his early season swoon to quiet all the calls for him to be traded, cast off, sent sailing into the sunset of retirement to thereby save us all from seeing a Hall of Fame quarterback in decline. I say this not only as a New England Patriots fan […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

Just a month remains in the season. Nobody has clinched a spot yet, though Denver and Indianapolis will get the first chances next week. Cincinnati suddenly has some breathing room in the still highly competitive AFC North. Atlanta and New Orleans continue to lead the NFC South at 5-7, where even 2-10 Tampa still has […]

Back in Blount: Patriots Sign LeGarrette Blount

Cue up the AC/DC: The New England Patriots are back in Blount. Even having galloped over the Indianapolis Colts in last year’s playoffs, which earned him a Sports Illustrated cover with his record setting postseason performance, running back LeGarrette Blount left the Patriots this past offseason to sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers. But after departing from […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 11

Coming up on Thanksgiving, races are still tight. Four teams in the AFC are only half a game behind the last Wildcard spot, for example. The Seahawks and 49ers are still hassling the NFC. Even the 2-8 Buccaneers are just two games away from their division’s lead. Other than the conference leading Pats and Cardinals, […]
