Former Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch, who has not played this season, is listed as inactive for Saturday night’s game. Branch signed earlier this week with the Colts, but now that he is not playing (Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey is also inactive for Indianapolis), what was the point of signing with the enemy?
Um, what the hell, Anthony Deion Branch? Yes, this warrants me using your full name, like a scolding mother after you broke a flower vase. I thought we had a deal. No, I thought we had something special. Because like that delicate flower vase, you broke my heart on Monday when you signed with Andrew Luck and […]
The wide receiver position is a key focal point in the upcoming season for the New England Patriots. Wes Welker, who was Tom Brady’s favorite target the past six seasons, is now catching passes from Peyton Manning out in Denver. It will be a new cast for Brady this season which could pose a significant […]
In usual Patriots fashion, the team is staying quiet about former teammate Aaron Hernandez and the murder charge he is facing in the death of Odin Lloyd. However, this code of silence apparently does not apply to retired or former players. Former Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch is the latest to speak out publicly on […]
Unlike the Texans game on Monday, Sunday night’s match-up of the 49ers and the Patriots lived up to all the hype. It had the feel of a heavyweight fight, and looked like a bloodbath early on. The Patriots turned things on late to make the game interesting, but the 49ers were able to hold off […]
For the second time this season, the Patriots have released wide receiver Deion Branch. Branch has been seldom-used this season, compiling only nine catches in seven games this season.
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 […]
Friday was the final day for NFL rosters to cut down to 53 players. All the work in the preseason goes into figuring out the best 53-man combination to go into the season with. Every year there are some cuts that cause fans to question the motive, and this year has been no different. The […]
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 […]
Well… crap. Just like four years ago, the New England Patriots came up just a couple plays short of beating the New York Giants and claiming their fourth Lombardi Trophy Sunday in Super Bowl XLVI. Instead, Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning once again bested Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, with Manning executing yet another fourth-quarter […]
The Book of 2 Timothy states: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” The Book of Tom states: “Good for you. I just whomped your ass.” Any comparisons between Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos and Tom Brady and the New England Patriots died following Saturday’s […]
The Miami Dolphins narrowly avoided disaster Saturday against the New England Patriots. Somehow a group of talented, motivated football players broke into their locker room, knocked everyone out, stole their uniforms and took the field for kickoff. The “Dolphins” went into halftime up 17-0. Luckily, the true – and truly terrible – Dolphins regained consciousness […]
The New England Patriots took every punch the Miami Dolphins threw at them in the first half of Sunday afternoon’s game at Gillette. In the second half, the Patriots came out swinging, and the Dolphins went down for the count. The Patriots scored 27 points in the second half, overcoming a 17-point deficit to beat […]
The Patriots (10-3) will be looking for their sixth win in a row Sunday. The Broncos (8-5) will be looking for their seventh. Both teams are in the playoff picture as of now, and history tells us that No. 12 for the Patriots has struggled against the Broncos. Tom Brady is 1-6 in his career against Denver. Denver has […]
It’s hard to dispute the success that Bill Belichick and the Patriots scouting department have had plucking players out of the college ranks since 2000. The likes of Tom Brady, Asante Samuel to Dan Koppen, Matt Cassel and Aaron Hernandez — all were heavily scouted and nice draft choices in the mid-to-late rounds. But where […]
