Bill Belichick Says He Didn’t Ask for Non-Call Explanation by Refs After Inquiry in Ravens Game Was ‘Wrong Thing to Do’

The Patriots are still in the habit of chasing down referees after controversial endings to games. This time, though, Bill Belichick let Tom Brady do it and kept his $50,000. The Patriots coach was fined the hefty amount last year after following a replacement official off the field after a controversial call ended a Patriots game against the Ravens. Belichick later said he was merely...

Patriots Will Be Underdogs for Consecutive Weeks

The Patriots have rarely been slated as underdogs during the Bill Belichick and Tom Brady era. Betting lines and prognosticators respect the talent of the Pats organization too much to bet against them. How rare is it for the Pats to be underdogs? Today, the Pats play the Panthers where the team is listed as a 2.5 point underdog to Cam Newton and company. For the upcoming...

Tom Brady High Fives With Elbow, Protects Injured(?) Throwing Hand

A.B. Tom Brady has been denying for weeks now that his throwing hand is injured. Yet, during tonight’s game against the Carolina Pantheres, blood appeared on the Patriots quarterback’s right hand as cameras zoomed in on him also flexing his non-throwing hand. Is his throwing hand injured? Is his non-throwing hand injured? Both? Neither? I didn’t think much of the speculation...

Talib, Dennard, Gregory all practicing

Aqib Talib, Steve Gregory and Alfonzo Dennard were all at practice Wednesday morning as the Patriots began prep for the Broncos. Dennard, who reportedly had a meniscus procedure over the weekend, was a bit of a surprise. Talib left Monday's game after aggravating his balky hip that kept him out several weeks. Gregory has a right thumb injury and missed Mondays game. He had...

Tom Brady is Getting Plenty of High Fives Now (sort of)!

Earlier this season (during the Saints game I believe) a clip of Tom Brady getting left hanging on a high five went viral. Since than there have been several obvious attempts for the veteran quarterback to get his love (of the high-five nature) from someone.It appears that it has become a thing now for the guys to high-five Brady--and they all did after a second half score on Monday...

Shane Vereen Activated For MNF

Patriots have activated running back Shane Vereen for Monday's game against the Panthers.Fantasy Spin:Vereen has been practicing for weeks and seems to be almost fully recovered from the broken wrist he suffered in the season opener. He's a risky option this week because we don't know what type of workload he'll receive, but going forward it should be Stevan Ridley...

Bill Belichick's Press Conference After the Game Was Uncomfortable For Everyone

The only thing which scares reporters more than a slow news day is having to ask Bill Belichick questions after a controversial loss. So, it's not surprising that after last night's non-call to end the game that every single reporter seemed to not want to be the guy to have to ask Belichick a question: Honestly, if the reporters could ask better...

Chandler Jones-Jordan Gross, Aqib Talib-Steve Smith Among Top Matchups to Watch in Patriots-Panthers

The Patriots and Panthers will both be tested this weekend. Carolina’s best win came last week against the 49ers and New England’s most-impressive victory came against the team that just toppled San Francisco in the final seconds this week, the Saints. The Patriots and Panthers have not won another game against a team with a winning record. A win from either team will prove a...

Patriots Missed Opportunities, Not Call, Ultimately Cost them the Game

Grant Halverson/ Getty ImagesWe've all discussed the controversially rescinded pass interference call that would have given the Patriots a final chance to win the game from the one-yard line at this point. It was a questionable no-call at best and came on the most critical snap of the game. There's no denying it had a big-time impact on the game's outcome.However, there...

Patriots Use PFW To Protest Non-Call At End Of Panthers Game

This week’s edition of Patriots Football Weekly (owned by the team). Nice. It might be a stretch to say that the Patriots are “using” PFW to send a message, but as the paper is a house publication, they at least approve of the the suggestion here. I guess this is as good a time as any to mention that this is the issue my monthly media column is in. It’s a look at the coverage...
