The ceremony took place after the first inning. It didn’t have quite the same formality or pomp and circumstance as the preface ceremony. There were no Lombardi trophies on display. Tom Brady had already left after throwing out the first pitch (or trying to). But by the bottom of the first inning, before the second […]
Current Personnel: Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Brandon LaFell, Brian Tymms, Brandon Gibson, Aaron Dobson, Kevin Dorsey, Matthew Slater, Josh Boyce Need Level: Low Possible fits: Rashad Greene (FSU), Ty Montgomery (Stanford), Nelson Agholor (USC) The Patriots have a plethora of slot/ possession receivers that have a strong rapport with Tom Brady.
The Patriots signed former Cleveland Browns defender Jabaal Sheard to a two year contract earlier this week. Sheard played defensive end and outside linebacker in Cleveland and projects to a similar role in New England. The 25 year old Sheard has 23 sacks in four seasons and nearly became a Patriot at the 2011 draft, […]
Vince Wilfork announced on Thursday that he had been informed by the Patriots that they would not be picking up the two year option in his contract. The move will make Wilfork, an 11-year veteran, a free agent to sign with any team. The move will save New England $8 million in salary cap space.
Current Personnel: Tom Brady, Jimmy Garoppolo Need level: Low Possible fits: None Had the Patriots not drafted Garoppolo in the second round of the 2014 draft, this position would have a higher need.
Current Personnel: Tackle: Sebastian Vollmer, Nate Solder, Cameron Flemming Guard/ Center: Dan Connolly (UFA), Josh Kline, Ryan Wendell, Bryan Stork Utility: Jordan Devey, Marcus Cannon Need Level: High Interior, Lower at Tackle Possible Fits: La’el Collins (LSU), Cameron Erving (FSU), Josue Matias (FSU), Hroniss Grasu (Oregon), Laken Tomlinson (Duke) The Patriots offensive line was the […]
When Tom Brady and Bill Belichick hoisted the Lombardi trophy for the fourth time Sunday, they had accomplished a rare feat. It was Belichick’s sixth Super Bowl Championship (fourth as a head coach) and Brady’s fourth as a player. Belichick tied Chuck Knoll as head coaches to win four and Brady tied Joe Montana and […]
Super Bowl XLIX lived up to the hype and then some. Sunday night saw the match-up of the two best teams in the NFL go down to the wire to decide the champion. Every snap counted and every second felt like an eternity, which is exactly how the Super Bowl is supposed to be. As […]
It’s here. It’s finally here. After two long weeks, the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks are finally set to kickoff later today for the Vince Lombardi trophy. But the long awaited arrival of Super Bowl XLIX has brought something else along with it: an outbreak of Super Bowl fever throughout New England. Super Bowl […]
Only in America would every major national news station cover the press conference of a man discussing the inflation levels of some footballs. All this outrage has been drummed up by the media, which is not shocking in the least. Thanks to the 24-hour “news” cycle we get to listen to so-called experts speculate for […]
The past two seasons we have grown accustomed to watching the Patriots blowout their divisional round opponent only to lose in the AFC Championship game. This year they changed things up for the better. Last week we all sat on the edge of our seats while the Patriots erased two 14-point deficits on route to […]
With their win this past Sunday, the New England Patriots advanced to their sixth Super Bowl since the start of the 2001 season. It is truly a remarkable achievement. Past great dynasties in the NFL did not have to deal with free agency and the salary cap, making this sustained run of success for the […]
Well, this is awkward. Quarterback Tom Brady laughed it off as “ridiculous.” Coach Bill Belichick all but ignored it (on to Seattle!). Wide receiver Julian Edelman said they didn’t feel any different than usual. Vince Wilfork took the bemused approach and claimed ignorance; after all, he just tackles people. Patriots fans scoffed and all but […]
Duron Harmon closed the gap quickly, ranging in from center field to position himself perfectly to intercept Joe Flacco’s deep pass looking for Torrey Smith in the end zone and close out a nerve-wracking, come-from-behind win for the New England Patriots. Or so it seemed. Instead of running out the clock with the two minute […]
What an incredible game we all witnessed Saturday night. From start to finish, as a fan, you didn’t have a second to catch your breath. Every snap mattered and in the end it was a couple key plays that turned the tide of the game. The Ravens have been one of the few teams that […]
