The New England Patriots End Zone Militia has been firing away for the past ten plus years. Every Patriots score is capped by the firing of arms from these Revolutionary War replicators. What a better way to bring in this Independence Day!
Happy July 4th from Boston Sports Then and Now.
The End Zone Militia.
They have a lot to fire about!

Running back Joseph Addai was once one of the NFL’s most productive running backs. He was not only a threat running the ball, but he also presented a threat as a receiver.
Addai’s last impressive season came in 2009 with the Indianapolis Colts when he ran for 828 yards and 10 touchdowns as well as recording 51 receptions for 336 yards and three touchdowns.
Since then, Addai has...
Just happened to check the Busted Coverage mailbox this afternoon and guess what was waiting for us? Yep, a wedding gift “thank you” note from Mrs. Wes Welker. You might remember how we were the first to report on the Welker online wedding registry. Yes, we bought the couple an avocado tool because it was reasonably priced & the general thought was that Wes would actually...
Tom Brady and Mr. Gronkowski.
The New England Patriots are one of the best teams in the NFL and last season they were minutes away from winning another Super Bowl ring. Is it possible that heading into the 2012 NFL football season the Patriots actually look better than they did a year ago? The quick answer is yes.

Six-year veteran Bobby Carpenter is hoping to become the contributing factor he was billed as when he was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft, 18th overall.
His career didn’t quite get off to a great start in Dallas. Over the 4 years in Dallas, he failed to establish a starting role, racking up 96 tackles in that span. We saw in 2008, during...

Jason LaCanfora of CBSSports.com doesn’t believe the New England Patriots will end up giving wide receiver Wes Welker the long-term extension that he’s been looking for.
“I don’t sense any real motivation to get this extended,” wrote La Canfora. ”The Patriots seem perfectly fine with the talented, but older, receiver playing out the tag. While Welker, clearly...
Matt Light was always a popular teammate during his tenure with the New England Patriots. When he decided to hang up his cleats after the 2011-2012 season, it was clear he would be sorely missed.
One of his former teammates may be seeing much more of him, as an interview with Tom Archdeacon of the Dayton Daily News revealed that Light, like former teammate Tedy Bruschi before...
Now this is a Patriots man cave!
The Boston Herald reports that new Patriots receiver Brandon Lloyd had a great offseason heading into training camp. The report says Lloyd was "dynamite throughout the offseason program, sticking out as much as any Patriot on the field, but those practices are conducive to passing success. The key is gaining (Tom) Bradys trust during game situations, and the tandem has worked...
Signs pointed to DE Andre Carter returning to the Patriots at some point in training camp or the preseason after tearing his quad in Week 15. Getting a deal done with Carter be that easy though as the Patriots reportedly are concerned about the 33-year-old's durability, and they added insurance at the edge-rusher position with rookies Chandler Jones and Jake Bequette as well...
Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston writes that the New England Patriots could end up playing backup quarterbacks Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer in their second preseason game in an attempt to drum up interest in one of the two players. The Patriots actually shopped Hoyer around to prospective teams a few months ago, but found no takers. Hoyer was a restricted free agent this season, so it...
Tom Brady Interview with Bledsoe Before Super Bowl 2002 (by Fujimans12)
According to Curt Nickisch of WBUR, the city of Boston is the using cannons for their fourth of July celebration that were meant to be used for the New England Patriots Super Bowl parade. Of course as we all know, the Patriots ended up losing last season’s Super Bowl, so the cannons were never used.
At least they decided to use them for something else, instead of...
