The Patriots are once again one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl this season. That's nothing new, though, for this era in New England. This era, of course, is the Bill Belichick era. Widely regarded as one of the best coaches in football, Belichick has positioned the Pats to be competitive every year through his no-nonsense, always-prepared style of coaching. The results speak for themselves, too, with three Super Bowls topping the ever-growing list of accomplishments for Belichick. Of course, having Tom Brady as your quarterback for pretty much that entire time doesn't hurt, either.

Corey Dillon Isn't the Only Thing Bill Belichick Should Want Back From 2004 Patriots

The Patriots haven't had much of a running game in recent years. Bill Belichick doesn't seem to mind. The way he's talking, in fact, he's just fine without wide receivers, defense, kick returners -- whatever. As long as the wins are rolling in, he says (and they are), he doesn't mind giving up one part of the game if it means racking up points elsewhere. "...

Bill Belichick Gives Logan Mankin High Praise as Guard Returns to Field from Torn ACL (Video)

We know now that Patriots guard Logan Mankins was playing on a torn ACL throughout last year's playoffs. However, that wasn't revealed until a postseason MRI, and Mankins returned to the football field for the first time since learning of that injury on Sunday, not able to suit up in full pads but participating in drills nonetheless. Bill Belichick gave Mankins some extremely...

Offensive and Defensive Linemen are the Main Story in New England Patriots' First Preseason Game

The New England Patriots played their first preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Thursday, eking out a meaningless 7-3 victory at Gillette Stadium. The main take-away from the game was the play of the offensive and defensive lines for the Patriots. The Patriots are usually known for a solid offensive line and have been much-maligned recently by an inability for anyone...

Logan Mankins Returns to Patriots Training Camp While Rob Gronkowski Takes Day of Rest

The Patriots had a noticeable absence in training camp Sunday, but they also welcomed back a familiar face. Star tight end Rob Gronkowski did not practice with the team, watching instead from the sidelines in street clothes. With no boot or noticeable discomfort, it's likely this was just an extra day off after a game for Gronkowski to rest his ankle, which he injured late last...

Plaxico Burress to work out for Patriots

Plaxico Burress may not leave the AFC East after all. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Burress is en route to New England for a workout with the Patriots. The free agent receiver has generated little buzz this offseason, largely due to his contractual demands, which he’s since lowered. He’s now willing to play for the league minimum, and that’s all he could...

New England Patriots Potential Breakout Player of 2012: Stevan Ridley

The great thing about the NFL is that there are so many positions that every year, there is almost always at least one player who has a breakout year on every team, no matter how good or bad the team is. This is one part in a 32 part segment detailing one potential breakout player for the 2012 NFL season on each NFL team. For the New England Patriots, that player is middle linebacker...

WR Burress to work out for Patriots

Free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress will work out for the New England Patriots, ESPN reported Sunday. The Patriots are practicing Sunday afternoon and coach Bill Belichick will speak to reporters afterward. Burress has recently been linked to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys, according to NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk. He has reportedly said that he is willing...

Chad Clifton, Plaxico Burress to visit Patriots

The Patriots will play host to two of the most prominent remaining free agents, Chad Clifton and Plaxico Burress. Clifton was cut by the Packers earlier this offseason after failing a physical and looked likely to retire at age 36, but if he can prove he’s healthy, he might be solid veteran depth behind 2nd year left tackle Nate Solder, who is going into his first year as a full...

AFC Division Picks: Are the Patriots and Texans the Favorites?

AFC EAST Patriots-Really a no-brainer here. The Patriots defense may be lacking at times, but their offense is just too potent, especially with the addition of Brandon Lloyd. Even though their pre-season game ended 7-6 over the Saints, everyone knows they are holding everything back. Josh McDaniels is back coaching Tom Brady. McDaniels was the offensive coordinator when Brady...
