ESPN analysts Mike Ditka, Teddy Bruschi and Cris Carter were made available for interviews on Wednesday afternoon and everyone’s favorite thing ensued: Meda interviewing media. I asked Bruschi whether or not he agreed with the controversial statements New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick made about Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker the day after the AFC Championship Game. Bruschi didn’t seem to want to really take a shot at Belichick, but the honesty was appreciated.

Report: Patriots were interested in Larry Fitzgerald last year

The New England Patriots were interested in acquiring Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald last year, and “sent out feelers to gauge the feasibility,” reports Tom Curran of CSNNE.com.

Turns out, it wasn't purely a joke made in the moment...

Wes Welker: Bill Belichick Had Me Run Same Play He’s Mad About

Wes Welker  has become louder and more boisterous since his departure from New England.

It’s the week before Super Bowl XLVIII and we’ve already seen that some players are getting burnt out on the mandatory media sessions.

Former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo is a big fan of Bill Belichick but that didn't stop Angelo from criticizing the Patriots and Belichick for the way that the Patriots roster was constructed over the past offseason.

Former Eagle Hollis Thomas Says Bill Belichick Cheated During Super Bowl XXXIX

According to former Eagles defensive tackle Hollis Thomas, the Philadelphia Eagles should have won Super Bowl XXXIX and were only foiled because Bill Belichick cheated. This is based on... no evidence whatsoever. Yup, no sour grapes here. "We got cheated!" he said. "It's not sour grapes. We got cheated…I don't bring it up. But when I'm asked...

Wes Welker Got Photobombed So Hard On The Knicks Jumbotron

Wes Welker is still having some trouble living down that big drop in the Super Bowl a couple years ago, and Knicks fans weren’t about to let him forget about it on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.

Jerry Angelo’s Take That Bill Belichick Built Patriots’ Offense Wrong Is Laughable

Former Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo has figured out why the New England Patriots lost to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game.

Wes Welker discusses play that ended Talib’s season

  Broncos WR Wes Welker is now talking about the pick play that ended Patriots CB Aqib Talib’s season. €œIt’€™s a rub play that everybody runs,” Welker said. “It’€™s one of those deals where you try to get a rub on that guy, and really, if you can get him to go over the top of you, the more separation the other receiver will have. That’€™s...

Patriots’ Pass Rush Would Benefit By Borrowing From Seahawks’ Defensive Mindset

Bill Belichick is supposed to be the defensive genius, but his predecessor has begun to outpace him. After watching the New England Patriots for four months, Pete Carroll’s Seattle Seahawks’ defense looks like an evolved beast. Carroll has essentially constructed two entirely different units depending on whether they’re in their base 4-3 or nickel, which has helped push them...

Welker explains collision with Talib

I asked Wes Welker on Tuesday if his collision with Aqib Talib in the AFC Championship could be equated to a game of chicken. “In a big game like that, of course,” said Welker, the former Patriot whose collision with the Patriots corner knocked Talib from the game and deeply irked Bill Belichick. “You’re out there trying to help your team win.
