Right around the time when Bill O’Brien was announced as the next head coach at Penn State last January, Josh McDaniels not so coincidentally made his return to the Patriots’ coaching staff. Might they be dealing with déjà vu, just one year later?
Bill Belichick announced the return of former Patriots assistant coach Brian Daboll (2000-2006) to the coaching staff, during his weekly conference call on Monday, even drawing similarities to McDaniels’ return last year.
“I’ll just put it out there now that we’re in the process of bringing Brian Daboll back onto our staff,” Belichick said of the move on Monday. “As soon as we get that worked out, he’ll be part of our coaching staff going forward; similar to what Josh (McDaniels) did last year but without any specific responsibility at this time.”
Daboll, who served as offensive coordinator in Kansas City (2012), Miami (2011) and Cleveland (2009-2010) over the past few season, will be joining the Patriots as an offensive consultant — similar

Patriots coach Bill Belichick is providing no update on injured tight end Rob Gronkowski.
Belichick said during a conference call Monday that he had nothing to add to his comments following New England's 41-28 win over the Houston Texans in a divisional playoff game Sunday. He said then he wasn't sure if Gronkowski had broken his arm.

The final minutes -- or just minute -- of each half will be at a premium when the New England Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens Sunday in the AFC Championship game.

Brendon Ayanbadejo took to Twitter on Sunday to take some potshots at the Patriots during New England's playoff victory over the Houston Texans.
When asked today by the media for an injury update on Patriots' DE Chandler Jones' ankle, Bill Belichick gave a very vague statement that unfortunately didn't say much on Jones' status.
From ESPN Boston:

Divisional Round of the AFC Playoffs. The Houston Texans head back to Foxboro, MA for the second meeting versus the New England Patriots in 5 weeks after the initial 2012 meeting in week 14. What have the Texans learned, what new wrinkles will we see from Belichick, Brady and crew, and who will show up who may not have been so influential in the game’s outcome in December.
I'm not one for adorning my body with tattoos for the sports teams I love but hey, that's what works for some people. However, one New England Patriots fan might want to reconsider his decision to feature this tattoo of Pat the Patriot on his body canvas.
There's bad tattoos and then there are BAD tattoos, this one is HORRENDOUS. First off, it looks like Pat...
BOSTON — When Doc Rivers leaves the basketball arena or practice court, he passes straight into the realm of fandom. With the Celtics, Rivers is a rational individual who understands that winning and losing has everything to do with the gameplan and execution, and nothing to do with whether he wears his lucky tie or took the same route to work as he did the last time the Celtics...
