Tom Brady Thinks He Can Win Another Super Bowl – Can He?

Over the past 12 years, the New England Patriots have dominated the league with three Super Bowl wins and five overall appearances to become one of the best franchises since 2000.

Ravens’ Ray Lewis Used PEDs to Return in Time for Playoffs

Apparently Wes Welker’s wife forgot to add one item to her scathing Ray Lewis rant on Facebook: Cheater. According to a story in Sports Illustrated’s next issue, Lewis used a banned substance during his recovery from a torn right triceps, and despite that he will be playing in Super Bowl 47. Mitch Ross, who owns Sports with Alternatives […]

What Really Wins Super Bowls

Great quarterbacks, great coaches, and great teams win Super Bowls. But along the way, every championship team has been helped by factors other than their own play.

2012 Patriots Blueprint to New Orleans (If They Sign Wes Welker)

I wrote at the end of September that Bill Belichick had lost his fastball on defense. As it turned out, I was wrong. Given the personnel, I thought it was a near miracle that the Patriots were an incomplete pass from a Super Bowl championship. Looking back, it was one of his finest coaching seasons. […]

Week of 2/5 – 2/12/12 This was a week filled with curious and controversial decisions like Kevin Youkilis popping the question to Tom Brady’s sister, Rob Gronkowski partying like he’s on the Jersey Shore right after losing the Super Bowl, and Tom Brady’s wife publicly blaming the receivers for blowing the big game.
