Who says preseason games are meaningless? Sure, the only snap that Tom Brady played in the New England Patriots’ final preseason game was as the holder on an extra point attempt, and typical starters Rob Gronkowski, Jerod Mayo, Dont’a Hightower, and Sebastian Vollmer, among others, didn’t even dress for Thursday night’s “game.” Nonetheless, last night’s game was […]
Accepting a challenge from Giants owner John Mara, coach Bill Belichick, owner Bob Kraft and the seemingly the entire Patriots team participated in the #IceBucketChallenge to raise money and awareness for ALS research. Watch the video here:
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 has come a long way. Happy 37th birthday to the greatest quarterback in NFL history.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, now at his 15th training camp in New England, knows his time in the league will eventually come to end, at least he said as much about his NFL mortality last week. “There’s no easy way about it — just got to grind, put the work in, listen to the coaches,” Brady […]
While addressing the media Wednesday morning, Bill Belichick announced that Rob Gronkowski will not begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list, and that he has been cleared to play. The announcement comes as a bit of a shock, as Gronkowski had surgery to repair his right ACL on January 9th. The Patriot’s […]
Naming 100 players in the NFL could be a daunting task for some, but most everyone would agree that ranking the 100 best players is a difficult task for anyone. Any list that tries to rank the best players in a sport will likely meet with contention and debate but at the same time people […]
According to new Browns coach Mike Pettine, the former Jets defensive coordinator, old 2011 copies of the Jets defensive playbook may be in the Patriots’ possession. “The initial playbook itself is actually quite thin, and that’s by design,” Pettine told SI’s Greg Bedard. “I don’t put a lot of graduate-level information in it. We know […]
The Patriots and Robert Kraft have been named in a wrongful death lawsuit against Aaron Hernandez. The suit is related to the South End double murders of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, according to WBZ.
Julian Edelman is making the most of his offseason. Last week the Patriots’ wide receiver was embroiled in an Inception-style t-shirt battle with tight end Rob Gronkowski, and on Wednesday he celebrated International Hamburger Day by posting a video he called “Burgertyme”, a Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis-inspired interview with defensive end Chandler Jones, with punter Ryan Allen […]
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski recently shared a photo of him when he was 12 in a #tbt social media post: First reaction, Gronk was never the little kid in his class: Second reaction: Gronk probably sucked at Wiffleball (huge strikezone).
Many New England Patriots fans were left scratching their collective heads following the 2014 NFL draft. Why didn’t the Patriots draft a tight end? Why did they draft a quarterback in the second round? Why did they draft so many offensive linemen? Gasoline was only added to the fire of burning questions later in the […]
Ty Law was recently voted to be the next inductee into the Patriots Hall of Fame. Law was a finalist alongside Bill Parcells and Raymond Clayborn. This is not a knock on Parcells or Clayborn, but Law was the obvious choice to be inducted. You could go on for hours listing the accolades of Ty […]
1st impressions are everything: The 1st round of the 2014 NFL Draft was somewhat disappointing. 90% of the hype surrounded whether or not Jadeveon Clowney would be the no. 1 pick courtesy of Houston. He did not let anyone down, and will have a bright future playing alongside J.J. Watt. Fast forward to the 29th […]
One of the biggest stories of the NFL Draft’s first round on Thursday was Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, considered by many to be the best QB prospect in his class, falling to number 22, where he was finally taken by the Cleveland Browns. Some of the reasons why Manziel fell that far may have been […]
