New England Patriots
St. Louis Rams
Over the past week or so we put out pieces reviewing all of the Patriots rookies this season.
It was kind of a unique year for the Patriots, with so many young players playing such key roles. The Patriots had four rookies in starting roles at different points this season. It's not only impressive that they were able to pull this off and still get to the AFC Championship, but also encouraging for next year. Theoretically these young players will get better in their sophomore year. Of course, some might get worse (a la Devin McCourty). That's definitely something to watch with Alfonzo Dennard. Much of the criticism of the Patriots was that their secondary players seemed to play worse as time went on.
Anyway, here's the round up of all our reviews
Chandler Jones comes from a family of serious athletes. Of the three boys in his family, Chandler is the youngest, and I cannot imagine his two older brothers babied him... Mine sure did not baby me. Adding...

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 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?

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...

Super Bowl XXXIX Patriots vs Eagles
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...
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...
On Thursday, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski showed his charitable side Thursday during his visit to New Orleans for the Super Bowl week festivities when he paid a kid $100 for some lemonade without asking for any change back.
The kid gave Gronk as many cups as lemonade as he could fit on a single tray, but the positive vibe that Gronk gave this kid with his generosity...
The New England Patriots and the Massachusetts High School Football Coaches Association (MHSFCA) are joining forces with MasterSports Inc., this year to present the 2013 New England Football Coaches Clinic.

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...
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...
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...
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...
