After last year's "year of the tight end", Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez became two of the most threatening receivers in the New England offense. Being in the same division as the best passing quarterback in the league, our very own Tom Brady, the New York Jets had no other option, but to adjust their defense to compete against this powerful offense.Last year, Gronkowski lead the league for receivers with 17 touchdowns, and also lead the tight end category with the most yards at the end of the 2011 season. Aaron Hernandez, not far behind Gronkowski, was fourth in for tight ends with 910 yards. These two tight ends proved time and time again to be a big part of the offense.Over the off season, the Jets added two new safeties to try and tame these two beasts, signing LaRon Landry and Yeremiah Bell. Both safeties are 6-feet and their speed is anticipated to slow down both tight ends on Sunday. So will the high-powered offense be slowed down by these two additions? We...

Stevan Ridley Sports 'Teletubby' Jumpsuit in Patriots' Locker Room, Look Catching on With Teammates (Photos)

Stevan Ridley took Casual Friday to another level. The Patriots running back strutted his stuff through the Patriots' locker room in none other than an adult onesie on Friday. Ridley prefers to call the getup a "jumpsuit," but it's semantics, really. Nothing takes away from the fact that an adult onesie -- or "jumpsuit" -- is a very...

New York Jets Keys to the Game: Week 7 vs. the New England Patriots

1. Contain Rob Gronkowski - Gronkowski absolutely murdered the Jets last year, highlighted by his posting eight catches for 113 yards and two scores in their second meeting, a 37-16 Patriots blowout victory. If the Jets want to win, they’re going to have to find a way to contain Gronk. That probably means a heavy dose of LaRon Landry and Antonio Allen covering Gronkowski, if the...

Rex Ryan admits Bill Belichick is the better coach

Shortly before the season began, Rex Ryan ruffled a few feathers by declaring himself the best defensive mind in football, eschewing the likes of Bill Belichick and Dick LeBeau. When it comes to being a head coach, however, he admits there’s no contest. “If it was just between (Bill) Belichick and me, he’s going to win that battle,” Ryan said, via ESPNNewYork.com. “I don’t...

Patriots are a tough team, statistically speaking.

Tough guys wear onesiesI've always heard that the way to tell a tough team is where they rank in rushing and where they rank in stopping the run.That's the tell tale sign of a physical team, that's tough to play. Over the past few years, the Patriots have not been particularly great in the rushing category. They've also usually been an average run defense.Not so far...

Is there anything worse than being America's Team?

America can go get their own ******* team. The New England Patriots are NEW ENGLAND's, and specifically, Boston's team. Go cheer for the ******* Cowboys. I actually had this thought the other day, before Cromartie called them that, when someone on Twitter followed me and their profile was #LakerNation #YankeeNation #PatsNation. It was one of the most sobering things ever...
