Matthew Slater Not a Fan of Thursday Games

Patriots special teams ace and captain spoke out Monday about Thursday night NFL games and how they affect teams. The veteran expressed concern about player safety and injuries. “I can’t sit here as the player rep of this team and say that I’m a huge fan of it. Obviously it puts our players in a […]

Report: NFLPA, Brady to Fight if Not Exonerated by Goodell

ABC News reported early Wednesday that Tom Brady and his players association representatives will fight in Federal Court any suspension that is given by Commissioner Roger Goodell when he hands down his appeal decision. In other words, Brady wants to be fully exonerated of any wrong doing or he will go to court. Brady was […]

It’s Time for the NFL to Crack Down After Flurry of Arrests

Well the 2014 NFL season came to an exciting — and for some, controversial — end, with the New England Patriots winning their 4th Super Bowl since 2001 under the leadership of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. For all of the diehard and loyal Patriots fans, this was a great experience and being able to […]

NFL Hires Former FBI Director to Conduct Internal Investigation Regarding Ray Rice

Roger Goodell, since he started as commissioner in 2008, has earned himself the reputation as a ruler with an iron fist, so now in the wake of the Ray Rice incident, it is ironic that his biggest controversy to date begins with him being too lenient on a certain matter. After only giving Ray Rice […]

Reports are coming in that the Patriots have agreed to send guard Logan Mankins to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for tight end Tim Wright and a draft pick.

Video: History of NFL Team Logos

This is really cool. It’s a look at NFL team logos through the years, sorted on a map. I find it amazing how regional the NFL was in the early days. Take a look:

Tom Brady: ‘Only Numbers That Truly Matter are Wins and Losses’

Thank you, Tom. While addressing reporters in Foxboro today, Tom Brady fired back at critics who have suggested that he is no longer near the summit of the NFL’s Quarterback Mountain. “I think that people pay to watch the games on TV because there’€™s a scoreboard,” Brady said. “I mean, I think that’€™s what it’€™s […]

The NCAA: How Can It Be Fixed?

Out of the many athletic organizations in America, none has come under more scrutiny recently than the National Collegiate Athletic Association, specifically in football. From the cancellation of EA Sports’ critically acclaimed NCAA Football video game series, to the recent unionization of the Northwestern University players, the NCAA has come under fire for dozens of […]

NFL to Flag Celebratory Goal Post Dunks

Starting next season, the NFL will no longer allow players to dunk the ball over the goal post crossbar in celebration of scoring a touchdown. Insert obligatory joke about the NFL standing for the “No Fun League” here. Awful acronym jokes aside, I am disappointed that I won’t be seeing any celebratory dunks this coming […]

Patriots Interested in Brandon Browner?

While everyone is focusing on the big wave free agency splash made by the Denver Broncos, the New England Patriots are quietly trying to make waves of their own. Sure, signing Darrelle Revis was about as big a splash as it gets but the team is also meeting with cornerback Brandon Browner. Who is Brandon […]

It was all there, right in front of the New England Patriots: The Broncos’ loss in San Diego gave them the opportunity to stake their claim to the coveted number one seed in the AFC.

Week 14 Preview: Patriots at Dolphins

Welcome to the PG era, folks: Post-Gronk. Luckily for the Patriots, they will be (hopefully) eased in by the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins, however, are far from an easy opponent. While the Patriots struggled with a middling Cleveland team last week, the Fins scored an impressive victory over a competitive Steelers team. Miami represents one […]

How the Patriots Beat Peyton Manning’s Broncos, and Where They Go From Here

Wow. Sunday night was certainly a game that lends itself to hyperbole, guttural wailing, screaming and crying. At times I found myself elated, followed shortly by rage, followed by desperation in sorrow. The win probably chart above sums up the game pretty perfectly, if you ask me. It was, in short, a typical Tom Brady-Peyton […]
