Tom Brady is now up to 8 INTs on the season, but not so long ago he only had 3. Brady has always been streaky when it comes to INTs. Hopefully he can start another INT-free streak heading into the postseason. Still, let's examine why he has fallen into this little slump as of late.Brady throws a lot of passes into tight windows, so tipped passes are usually the main culprit of his INTs. Nevertheless, Brady tends to be better than average at avoiding tipped passes.  But lately, there have been a few bad bounces and unavoidable INTs (i.e. Aldon Smith).The other downfall for Brady has been that he has tried to be overly aggressive in trying to get the ball to a guy he thinks is open for a big gain.

Patriots To Wrap Up 2012 On Sunday

It’s hard to believe, but another NFL regular season winds down this weekend. Another season of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will be in the books. What a run it has been. Why not try to enjoy it while we still have it? As for Sunday, it seems pretty simple. If the Texans win, I think the Patriots treat this week as their bye. As many key players as possible will be rested. There...

Who will it be?

Santa was good to me this year.  I got a Bengals toaster, a new authentic Dalton jersey and a playoff berth.  It feels so good to be here.  Playoff bound, a good core group of guys and a team that finally looks to be on the up-and-up.  People will talk about this Sunday’s game against the Ravens and why is does or doesn’t matter (everyone knows that it does) but there is...
