Any fantasy football owners worried about New England’s Brandon Lloyd in 2012 should feel much better after Week 1 of the NFL season. Tom Brady has a variety of receiving options at his disposal, but the big four targets of Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez and Lloyd should be able to help each other [...]
An article in Forbes listed our beloved New England Patriots as the second most valuable team in the NFL, behind only the Dallas Cowboys. The Patriots are valued at $1.64 billion while the Cowboys sit at $2.1 billion. The article goes onto mention that the Patriots have sold out every game at Gillette Stadium since [...]
Michael Felger began his show on Tuesday with a very interesting question. I am paraphrasing, but the question was do Patriot fans feel the same way about the team’s chances this year as they did at the beginning of training camp? Felger and Massarotti spent a lot of time discussing a Monday column by the [...]

Tom Brady is America’s alpha dog. Wait, you didn’t know that? Well, thankfully, VMAN Magazine is here to explain. They talked to Brady and are featuring him on their fall issue, which is due in stores August 23. Brady is wearing a Tom Ford tuxedo…and of course the dog collar. Here’s a look at the [...]
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.
Plaxico Burress, who caught the winning pass to end the Patriots’ shot at a perfect season in the 2008 Super Bowl, will work out for the team on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Burress, who turned 35 on Sunday, has not worked out with any other team this offseason. He finished with 45 catches [...]
Our position-by-position Patriots preview continues with special teams.

Despite being one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL over the past five seasons, the New England Patriots still have flaws that have been exposed in major ways at inopportune times. From the 2010 Divisional Round loss to the Jets, to a pair of Super Bowl losses versus the Giants, there has been [...]
At first glance, the Patriots’ linebacker position should excite fans of the team. They are a relatively young group, the oldest being Niko Koutouvides (31), and they already have a tremendous amount of experience. The young linebackers helped lead a struggling defense to the Super Bowl last season, and with a full year playing together [...]
Have you had enough Gronk in your life? No? Well you’re in luck. Rob Gronkowski and his family are headed to the small screen.
The Patriots reached agreement with free agent tight end Visanthe Shiancoe on a one-year deal on Tuesday. Shiancoe joins a tight end crop that already includes Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Daniel Fells and the injured Jake Ballard (who likely won’t contribute until 2013). But, with Gronk and Fells currently recovering from injuries, the 32-year-old Shiancoe [...]
As the summer months move along, we are getting closer to the kick off of the 2012-2013 NFL season. The Patriots returned to the Super Bowl for the fifth time in the Belichick era this past season, only to lose a disappointingly once again to the New York Giants. Yes, those same New York Giants [...]
“The Patriots never pay anybody, ever!” Not true. On Friday, the Patriots agreed to a six-year, $54 million contract extension with the best tight end in football, Rob Gronkowski, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
