Gisele consoles Tom Brady after his Super Bowl loss (Video)

After ending his season with a loss in the Super Bowl, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was there to be consoled by his Brazilian supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen. Last week a private e-mail by Gisele, asking friends and family in advance of the Super Bowl to pray for Brady, was leaked to the media. In the message she wrote, “I kindly ask all of you to join me on this...

Patriots WR Tiquan Underwood says of his release: “This Is Nothing But MOTIVATION….”

In cold-blooded fashion, the Patriots released WR Tiquan Underwood tonight. The move was designed to get more defensive linemen on the field, and they promoted DE Alex Silvestro. It’s not disciplinary, and the team does want him back next year. It’s just brutal for tonight. Awful for Underwood. He wouldn’t have played much, but it still sucks.

Five missed plays that changed Super Bowl

The New York Giants have won Super Bowl XLVI. Or, you might say, the New England Patriots lost it.

Rob Gronkowski nearly hauled in Tom Brady's Hail Mary attempt as time expired in Super Bowl XLVI. But it doesn't matter to the Patriots tight end. Gronkowski said after the Patriots' 21-17 loss to the Giants that it doesn't matter how close he was to catching Brady's desperation heave because unless he actually caught it, the result of the game remains the same...

Blast from the past: Former Patriot QB Michael Bishop reflects on Brady, his time in Foxboro

Yesterday we featured a story on the draft of Tom Brady and his evolution of sorts into the player he’s become. One player who had a front row seat was former Patriot backup quarterback Michael Bishop. Bishop, at the time in 2000, had his fair share of hype and was one of four quarterbacks on the roster along with Brady, John Friesz and Drew Bledsoe. During Brady’s rookie season...

A season that began with heartbreak for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft ended with another loss.

Brady unable to add to legacy

Tom Brady already has built an impressive Super Bowl legacy, but his bid to match the accomplishments of the game's all-time greats was snuffed out by the New York Giants - again.
