FOXBORO, Mass. -- Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty has quietly improved in recent weeks after a very rough stretch in late September. The difference, at least in a few weeks, has been a defensive game plan that has been more conducive to McCourty's strengths. In the first two weeks of the season, against Miami and San Diego, McCourty was given a lot of responsibility in man coverage, and he wasn't always afforded the luxury of having a safety at his back. Clearly, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick believed McCourty was ready to take on more responsibility after a phenomenal rookie season....

Wes Welker Likes Little People Waiters At His Parties

New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker is probably the shortest dude in the NFL. He’s listed as 5’9″, but he’s probably a little shorter than that. So what does he do when he throws a party?

FOXBORO, Mass. -- Running back Stevan Ridley hasn't gotten a consistent amount of reps during his rookie season with the Patriots, which isn't much of a surprise to anyone who has followed the team's recent trend at that position.

Cromartie knows the key to stopping Wes Welker

Wes Welker’s insane receiving pace slowed down for a few games after he faced the Jets last time around. For two games, Welker caught only 12 passes 84 yards and a score. That’s not bad, but it’s not the record-breaking numbers we saw early in the season. Welker bounced back for a huge day against…
