Found August 18, 2014 on The Sports Daily:
Athletes are generally revered by fans but they can be  disliked, too. While players like Peyton Manning and Calvin Johnson tend to elicit positive reviews, other NFLers don’t draw the same sentiments. Whether it’s a spotty history off the field or just actions that paint them in a negative light while on the field, players find ways to be hated.

Buy or Sell: Tom Brady

Tom Brady has long been a cornerstone for fantasy franchises, a QB you could count on to put up top three or four numbers. But he’s getting up there in age and his once full cupboard of weapons is now, for reasons ranging from homicide to injury to age, somewhat bare. That said, he still put up more than 4,000 yards passing and threw 25 TDs in a year in which he lost for all or...

What do the New England Patriots need to do to win another Super Bowl?

There is no mystery as to what the New England Patriots primary objective is this season. In the era of Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady there is only one objective: winning a Super Bowl championship. It’s not easy winning Super Bowl championships. After making it look easy from 2001-2004, the Pats have found that out the hard way. It’s been nine-and-a-half years since...

Even New England Patriots QB Ryan Mallett Gets More Love Than Tom Brady

You would think that of any player on the New England Patriots it would be Ryan Mallett that gets no love--not Tom Brady. After all it is Mallett that is constantly being talked about as trade bait. By drafting Jimmy Garappolo it is pretty clear the Patriots are not going to try and resign him after the season. Yet in spite of that he is the one that is getting the high-5 from the...

LaFell: Brady 'expects you exactly where he wants you'

BY DAVID HEIMMoving to Foxborough might just be the best thing to happen to Brandon LaFell in his young career.Playing with a quarterback like Tom Brady is obviously a blessing for a young wide receiver. However, just like any pass-catcher moving into a new offense, getting an early connection down with the signal-caller--regardless of who he is--is goal No. 1 during camp. Insert...

Gronk partakes in full-team drills for 1st time
