Found September 19, 2012 on
Deion Branch is back in New England, and the Patriots are excited to get the reliable No. 84 back on the field. After being a last-minute cut during roster trim downs on August 31, Branch's locker in the Patriots locker room has remained in tact with the expectation being that he'd find his way back onto the roster. Well, on Wednesday, he did just that. Unlike Kellen Winslow, who will have to pick up the offensive system on the fly after agreeing to a one-year deal on Tuesday, Branch is already familiar with Tom Brady and the Patriots' system. Brady...

Branch is Back!

Branch caught five touchdowns from Tom Brady last season, pricing a consistent option anywhere on the field. It seems that the Patriots have found a part-time solution for the absence of Aaron Hernandez in the offense. According to The Boston Globe, New England has re-signed WR Deion Branch after cutting him in the pre-season. There are currently no details as to the numbers involved...

Manchester, NH According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, The Patriots have come to terms with Deion Branch to return to the team. Patriots blog on @espnboston: Eighteen days later, now it’s a Deion Branch for Greg Salas swap. — Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) September 19, 2012 The Patriots have now twice in their history told Branch [...]

Patriots sign TE Winslow, re-sign WR Branch

The New England Patriots have signed tight end Kellen Winslow and re-signed wide receiver Deion Branch. The announcement Wednesday came three days after tight end Aaron Hernandez was sidelined with a right ankle injury. The Patriots have not said how many games they expect him to miss. Winslow was released by the Seattle Seahawks on Sept. 1 after spending the past three seasons...

New England Patriots Offensive Woes: Time To Panic?

New England fans are used to two things: a potent offense with Tom Brady at the helm, and a defense that shines under coach Belichick regardless of the personnel available. We know that two things have not changed; Brady is still the Pro Bowl passer with a lot of life left in his arm, and Belichick is still a master at coaching up a terrific defensive plan.Of course, New Englanders...

Patriots re-sign Deion Branch, Nick Koutouvides; sign veteran Kellen Winslow

The Patriots were busy on Tuesday following their 20-18 loss to Arizona on Sunday. They resigned veteran wide receiver Deion Branch as well as linebacker/special teams extraordinaire Nick Koutouvides. They also signed tight end Kellen Winslow, a move that makes all the sense in the world after Aaron Hernandez has been ruled out for 4-6 weeks. Branch has been one of Tom Brady’s...

Welcome Back, Deion!

In a not-so-surprising move, the Patriots have re-signed Deion Branch.  With Hernandez out, it's looking like the Pats will try their hand at some three-receiver sets this week.   And for the two tight-end packages, the newly acquired Kellen Winslow may be just what the Patriots need to keep things going in Aaron's absence.  Overall, I would chalk this up as two solid...

If Bill Belichick is vindictively punishing the great Wes Welker, the fraud should again be ashamed of his behavior

Despite putting up solid numbers and breaking Troy Brown’s record to become the all-time receptions leader in Patriots history with his 558th catch in New England’s embarrassing 20-18 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, speculation is mounting that receiver Wes Welker … Continue reading →

Titans' coach not making changes after 0-2 start

Disappointed. Upset. Frustrated. Embarrassed. Gloomy. The Tennessee Titans are wallowing in their emotions after an ugly and inept start to the season that has them winless after two games. They knew the opening month would be tough, having to face Tom Brady and Phillip Rivers - with Matthew Stafford and Matt Schaub looming. Just not this tough. The Titans have been dominated...

End of road for Turner?

Brutus: What's the deal with Wes Welker and New England??? Other than Bill Belichick throwing an entire season under the bus over a trivial vendetta? When a few media members voiced their concern in August that Welker's refusal of a long-term offer might result in a reduced role, I scoffed at the notion. Sure, the Hoodie is a curmudgeon, but to sacrifice one of his most...

Patriots-Ravens Preview

A late missed field goal sunk the Baltimore Ravens in last season's AFC championship game, sending the New England Patriots to their fifth Super Bowl since Bill Belichick and Tom Brady arrived in Foxborough. A similar ending has the Patriots feeling a bit of early season angst heading into Sunday's rematch with Baltimore, which is trying to shake off another heartbreaking...

Patriots at Ravens---Sunday prime time preview...

The New England Patriots will be bringing a little different look to the Ravens this Sunday night... the Pats have gone to a 4-3 base on defense. On offense they will be missing their great versatile tight end Aaron Hernandez. That's a big deal since Hernandez was such a flexible play-call option for QB Tom Brady. And normally you'd expect slot receiver Wes Welker to pick...

Jimmie Johnson Sylvania 300 Race Preview

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – There’s no doubt Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus make up one of the best driver-crew chief duos in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series garage. In fact, there are few combinations in any sport that come close to their success. However, New England gives them a run for their money with the duo behind the success of the National Football League’s New England Patriots...
