Allow me to do my best impersonation of Bill Belichick and try to find negatives in an overwhelmingly positive game. After all, I wouldn’t be a Boston sports fan if I still couldn’t find things to complain about…
The last few weeks, it seems like a lot of the talk about the Patriots has been about the sluggish offense and anemic pass defense combining to blow games in the last minutes of the fourth quarter. Entering what had all of the signs of a trap game, the Patriots traveled overseas and showed up […]
No one can say the Patriots don’t bring plenty of drama in their games. In beating their arch rival Jets 29-26, the Patriots let New York get ahead early, came back to open up a lead, let New York back in it, opened another lead, let New York take the lead, tied the game and […]
The Red Sox have the Yankees. The Celtics have the Lakers. The Bruins have the Canadiens. And Tom Brady and the Patriots have Peyton Manning and the Colts Broncos. While the first three rivalries sometimes fail to live up to expectations, the Brady-Manning rivalry consistently delivers excitement and suspense. Brady vs. Manning, Round 13, went […]
The Patriots defeated the Broncos 31-21 on Sunday at Gillette Stadium to lock down their first home victory of the season. First Half The Broncos started off with the ball after winning the toss. Peyton Manning looked good in his return to Gillette as he led the offense down the field. Manning connected with Demaryius […]
The Patriots rallied from a 21-7 deficit in Buffalo to defeat their AFC East rival by a final score of 52-28. The game started off well as the Patriots’ defense was able to force a punt on Buffalo’s first drive. The punt pinned the Patriots at their own 10 yard line, but that didn’t phase […]
You’ve all heard of Corn Flakes. Then there was Frosted Flakes. Then, they made Flutie Flakes. Now…there’s Gronk Flakes. Seriously.
The New England Patriots defeated the Tennessee Titans 34-13 on Sunday in sunny Nashville, Tennessee. In spite of a bloodied and possibly broken nose, Tom Brady performed as expected, completing 23 out of 31 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns. While the offense performed well, the defense of the Patriots is what really stood out […]
As the start of the 2012 regular season quickly approaches, one of the most interesting positions on this team is that of the wide receivers. In the 2011 season the Patriots finished out with a receiving corps consisting of Wes Welker, Deion Branch, Julian Edelman, Matthew Slater, and Chad Ochocinco Johnson. We all know how […]
Oh the brilliance of the NFL preseason. Four games broadcasted and covered by national media like they were being played in the middle of November. But unfortunately, when the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles suited up for their Monday night preseason showdown at Gillette Stadium, the lack of a full effort from both sides […]
Last year, the tight end position separated the Patriots from the rest of the pack, as Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez put up tremendous offensive numbers, and with the promise of another successful season around the corner, there’s little reason to expect anything but a repeat performance. Read: Other 2012 Patriots Previews However, with just about […]
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.
First, Rob Gronkowski won a Celebrity Home Run Derby (and actually hit one out of the park). Now, for those interested, here’s Gronk naked…
“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.
When the 2012 New England Patriots kick off their season in a few months, many of the faces will look familiar. Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and Wes Welker will still be there, picking apart defenses. Jerod Mayo will still blow up any receiver foolhardy enough to run across the middle of the field. Stephen Gostkowski […]
