Probably the worst Patriot season in recent memory.
Even 2008 wasn't as bad. At least in 2008 the team had an excuse for failing to meet expectations. There was no Tom Brady.
After the shock of seeing Brady keeled over on the ground in the first game of that season wore off, it became a pretty entertaining year. Who thought we would be watching Matt Cassel defy the odds and lead the team into playoff contention? It wasn't expected that the Patriots would do well, and that's what made it so fun when they did.
Yet, a year later. All those expectations changed when Brady came back. What did the team do? They fell flat. Who could've predicted that that team with Tom Brady back at the helm would finish with a record even worse (10-6) than the year before with Cassel (11-5).
Of course, the Patriots actually made it into the playoffs that year, but suffered their most humiliating defeat to date. A 33-14 beat down, at home no less, in which Tom Brady hit the grou...

The Sports Grid does a nice job breaking down how Aaron Hernandez life in prison is going. Prison isn’t a pleasant place, so as you can imagine he is confined to small cell and doesn’t have a lot of privileges.
I have told the story before about how I had a bunch of unpaid traffic tickets many years ago. I didn’t think they would actually arrest anyone for traffic tickets...
Aaron Hernandez and his murder charge is a subject that is taboo in the NFL and especially Foxboro, but it’s also the subject that most people want to know about. Well, Rob Gronkowski is haven’t nothing to do with it.
When pressed to speak about his former teammate Gronk emphatically refused and when pressed even threatened to leave the interview.
I understand his reluctance...
It seems we learn something new everyday.
Every season, the Pro Football Hall of Fame reportedly asks a panel of photography experts to choose the best NFL photo of the year.
That photographer gets an award, and the picture is put on permanent display at the Hall of Fame. A photo of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez high-stepping into the end zone to score a go ahead touchdown...
The Boston Globe was able to tour the Bristol County House of Corrections, where Aaron Hernandez is awaiting trial on charges of first-degree murder.
Many questions have surfaced recently in light of the recent Hernandez and Dennard arrests about the validity of the “Patriot Way.” But while the “Patriot Way” has supposedly been employed by the organization ever since Bill Belichick took over in 2000, it apparently went through a transformation in 2009, the year former Patriots general manager Scott Pioli left. Peter King...
The New England Patriots will not release second-year corner back Alfonzo Dennard in wake of his DUI, according to the Boston Globe. The Patriot’s do not plan on releasing Dennard, but they are prepared for him to be suspended by the NFL under the player conduct policy. Dennard could likely be looking at, at least three games, as [...]
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, trading card and memorabilia company Panini has pulled all of the Aaron Hernandez sticker cards from their sticker book collections.
A representative with trading card and memorabilia company Panini confirmed to ESPN.com on Thursday morning that the company painstakingly removed Hernandez stickers from 500,000 of its sticker books, which were...
With Aaron Hernandez trading in his Pats jersey for an orange jump suit and the Gronk continuing to break dance following arm and back surgeries - the top flight depth at the TE position has taken a hit this offseason. If you miss out on Jimmy Graham - we suggest owners target other positions and wait to nab a TE in rounds 7-8 as there are many options that should surprise with a...
Patriots coach Bill Belichick is a coaching icon in the NFL (regardless if you love him or hate him) and his hoodie is the most famous sweatshirt on the planet.

Well done Gillette.

Gronkowski questioned about Aaron Hernandez
Gronkowski Wears a Ladies Hat to Hide
CBS News, our non-sports newsy brothers from the same mother, did an interview with the entire Gronkowski family. Naturally, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was there. But he almost didn't stay for the whole thing, threatening to walk out when Dan Dahler tried to turn the subject towards Aaron Hernandez.
You can see the clip above (and the full interview here) but it was a...

So what is going to happen here? A-Rod is going to play a game or two then be told by MLB that he’s suspended for 150 games for his second PED offense? I’m really not sure I understand what is going on right now. I posted an article yesterday that said I know for a fact A-Rod is going to get popped for his second PED offense...
Tim Tebow and Tom Brady worried about Aaron Hernandez's behavior as early as 2011, with Hernandez being described as "a lot to handle," a newly surfaced video shows.
Brady: “And I’m trying to watch over Aaron and Brandon.” Tebow: “I appreciate that, too, man. They’re good guys.” Brady: “[Yeah] they’re a lot to handle.”
