Found January 30, 2013 on Patriots Life:
The Patriots can breathe a sigh of relief because reportedly defensive end Chandler Jones will not need surgery for either of his ankles. The Patriots really lacked an effective pass rush from week 6 and on when Jones went down with a bad ankle. Directly after the Patriots loss to the Ravens, Jones told members of the media he was going to seek medical attention from team doctors to see whether or not he needed surgery. Of course, as we now know the news is good, but with the ankle being a vital part of the position Jones struggled the second half of the year accounting for just nine tackles and no sacks. Jones, after becoming healthy enough to play, injured his other ankle in just his second game back while versing the Texans in the playoffs. Although he practiced all week leading up to the Ravens game his snaps were limited to just two come game time and the result was a Joe Flacco jersey that didn’t even need to be put in the washing machine. Jones, before the injury, ha...

Tom Brady: An uncomfortable breakup on the horizon?

Here are the facts New England Patriots fans need to take some time to think about with regards to Tom Brady. Brady has two years left on his five-year contract extension from 2010, and is due $43,600,000 dollars over the next two seasons. This is partly because he restructured his contact for 2012 to save the Pats some money. It’s always painful to talk about when the Pats will...

The Patriots lost out on another Super Bowl, what do they need to get back? Mock Draft 1.0

The Patriots did not make the Super Bowl, what is their biggest need? Here is my first look at the NFL Draft.  There are a lot of teams that need quarterbacks this year.  The problem, there are not enough QB's in the draft. I expect to see teams trying to trade down, will they have any takers? 1. Chiefs - Bjoern Warner, DE, Florida State 2....

Top 5 replacement quarterbacks in NFL history

Former New England Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe was interviewed on ESPN’s Collin Cowherd regarding the San Francisco 49ers quarterback situation. He stated it’s normal to have animosity and to be upset, but it’s how you define the situation that defines you. When Tom Brady replaced Drew Bledsoe it would change the Patriots history forever. Here’s a look at the Top 5...

Patriots and Tom Brady need a deep threat

It's been clearly evident that the New England Patriots struggle to stretch the field vertically. As great of a season as he had, Brandon Lloyd failed to provide the deep attack that the Pats were relying on. Even with virtually no down-field threat, the Patriots had the league's most prolific offense, with most of the credit going to quarterback Tom Brady. Offensive coordinator...

Danny Amendola could replace Wes Welker in New England

A fan named Joshua asked ESPN’s Adam Schefter if Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola could end up replacing Wes Welker in New England. It’s definitely possible, Joshua. Amendola is a poor man’s, younger, cheaper Welker. If New England can’t re-sign Welker, it would not be surprising in the least if the Patriots made a run at Amendola. You’re not the first person who has thought...

Bye Bye Brady?

I can’t wear my Uggs in the desert Juan… I love these rumors that fly out of local newspapers in the offseaon.  I mean, you think the Pats are going to trade Tom Terrific?  Steve Young at backin’ him up.  I can’t even imagine him in a Cardinals uniform despite the awesome photoshop.

Patriots Rank Sixth on Forbes’ List of Most Valuable Sports Franchises

In this year’s ranking of the world’s most valuable sports teams, released by Forbes on Monday, the Pats come in valued at an estimated $1.4 billion, tying the Los Angeles Dodgers for sixth...

Marshall Faulk: The Patriots cheated to beat us

What would be a Super Bowl without talking about SpyGate? It seems to come up every year, and it is rearing its ugly head, once again. This time in the form of an accusation from the former best player on the St Louis Rams, whom the New England Patriots defeated in Super Bowl XXXVI. Former All-Pro and MVP running back Marshall Faulk told CSNNE.com’s Tom Curran, that he believes...

Randy Moss says Kevin Faulk, Patriots taught him 'how to work'

San Francisco 49ers wideout Randy Moss has never been one to mince words. He continued that trend Tuesday during Super Bowl Media Day.The self-proclaimed greatest receiver of all time touched on everything from comparing Jim Harbaugh and Bill Belichick to stating he wasn't happy with his current role. But the former New England Patriot did have some not-so-outlandish things to...

Marshall Faulk still bitter, "cheated out of the Super Bowl" by Patriots

Remember that whole "Spygate" thing? As a Patriots fan, does anyone ever bring that up to you? Like most things in the media, the perception of spygate got blown way out of proportion. It was cheating, certainly. Did it help? Of course it did, otherwise Belichick wouldn't have been doing it. However, most fans and even analysts kind of got so lost in a game of telephone...

Ed Reed wants to have babies with Bill Belichick, yeah he's signing here

I will go on record right now and predict that Ed Reed will be wearing a Patriots jersey next season. It's just a matter of time. He needs to get done with this whole Super Bowl thing this year, so he can get back to it next year. I'm not the first one to guarantee this either. Peter King of Sports Illustrated (it's a magazine!) said the same thing before the Pro Bowl...
