New England Patriots: Finding trade partners for the Draft

The Patriots shouldn’t trade up in this draft. They shouldn’t even stay put at 29. They should trade down. Admittedly, this is a wildly un-sexy opinion. This year we have a pretty exciting draft. The consensus No. 1 prospect might go anywhere from 1 to 7, as it seems every day there are new stories either valorizing his talent or bemoaning his lack of motor/consistency. There...

According to Tony Pauline the Patriots are “incredibly high” on Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage and […] The post Patriots have interest in both QB Tom Savage and...

Matthew Slater says the Patriots asked for a lot out of Kenbrell Tompkins, Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce

The Patriots youth movement at wide receiver began with a bang in 2013. There was no easing the class of 2013 into the grind of the NFL regular season. Instead, due to a depleted tight end position due to a recovering Rob Gronkowski and an incarcerated Aaron Hernandez, the Patriots were forced into the unenviable position of having Tom Brady throw to guys who were learning on the...

Patriots’ ‘Extremely Talented’ Additions Have Matthew Slater Excited

The New England Patriots have plenty of reasons to be optimistic heading into the 2014 NFL season. The Patriots went 12-4 and made it to the AFC Championship Game in 2013 despite their roster being decimated by injuries. Head coach Bill Belichick and director of player personnel Nick Caserio were pulling players off the scrap heap to fill in along the defensive line after Vince...

Law: No disrespect to Aqib Talib, but Darrelle is a special talent

Former New England Patriots cornerback Ty Law sees a lot of himself in newly acquired cover man Darrelle Revis and he's rooting for him to excel. He should, he grew up in the same city (Aliquippa, Pa) and has known Revis since he was a kid playing in Pop Warner. The two are good friends and Law says Revis was special back in the days, and that he's worked to be one of...

Power Rankings: New England Patriots have a top-10 offense in the NFL

The old adage is that “defense wins championships.” But more and more, that sounds like a cliché being echoed by a coach, analyst or fan intent on living in the past. Nowadays, offense makes the difference; at least most of the time. Looking for proof? Take a look at the teams that made the playoffs last season. The 12 teams who made the postseason all finished in the top-18...

Tom Brady is a Naughty, Naughty Boy

Tin Brady is not known for being goofy; not on purpose at least. You don't hear about playing a ton of practical jokes and he doesn't try to inject humor in to his press conferences--ever. It's just not his way and that is fine. He's hired to win football games; not do stand-up.Which makes it all the more surprising that the 36-year old plays with a water hose in...

3 Patriots Most Likely To Break Out in 2014

1. Brandon LaFell Getty Images The Patriots need help at Wide Receiver, and recognized that as one of their needs this off-season.  With a group of younger Wide Receivers, Amendola and Edelman, the Patriots looked to add some more to the unit.  Interestingly enough, the only veteran they decided to bring in was this guy. LaFell has had his struggles in recent years in Carolina...

Mel Kiper Jr. says Patriots need a veteran safety, second year player Duron Harmon a 'risk'

According to Mike Reiss of ESPN, the New England Patriots would be taking a risk relying on second year safety Duron Harmon. He was a third-round draft choice in the 2013 NFL Draft and played behind Devin McCourty and the now released Steve Gregory. Harmon (6'1, 205) is in line for a starting role, but ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. believes the Patriots could be taking a big gamble.

Tom Brady grins as he sprays water from a hose he’s holding by his crotch (photo)

It’s difficult to ascertain if Tom Brady was deliberately holding a hose right near his crotch and spraying water out of it in a bid to make some innuendo-loaded phallic humor, but the sophomoric grin on the New England Patriots quarterback’s face arguably helps lead a person to make that conclusion. You can almost imagine […] The post Tom Brady grins as he sprays water from...

Ryan Wendell impressed with OL Josh Kline

Late last season, offensive lineman Josh Kline was inserted into a crucial game against the Baltimore Ravens, and did nothing but act like he's been there before. The the-rookie held his own at left guard for the first start of his NFL career. Fellow lineman, center Ryan Wendell took notice that day, and is excited about Kline's potential contribution in 2014. “I...
