Found November 11, 2011 on The Rap Sheet:
It has been an odd year for Patriots DE Jermaine Cunningham. The 2010 second-year pick from Florida started a bunch of games last year and seemed primed for a breakout year. Yet… it hasn’t happened. Cunningham has been a recent healthy scratch, and it’s not clear if that will change Sunday. He’s also been mostly silent with the media. Today, though, he talked. I asked if he’s gotten down considering the lack of playing time, and he said, “Nah…” “I just try and get better, help the team win,” he said, “however they need me.” Cunningham keeps it simple.

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? He hires little people as waiters. TMZ reports that Welker specifically requested the catering company put a couple people shorter than him on the waitstaff, which is what you’re...

The clock is ticking for Patriots OL Marcus Cannon…

More than two weeks ago, the Patriots had cancer survivor and offensive lineman Marcus Cannon practice, which was pretty cool after he began the year on the reserve/Non-Football Injury List. It was a touching situation. Yet Cannon is allowed to practice for just three weeks before the team has to decide whether to activate him or not. If it doesn’t, Cannon will have three weeks...

Stevan Ridley Focuses on Making Most Out of Sporadic Amount of Carries

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. Bill Belichick typically rides the hot hand, and there's usually no telling who gets the first opportunities to show what they've got...

A Haynesworth-less Patriots To Try and Stop Snide

For the fourth time in seven games, the New England Patriots take on a team from the Empire State. This week’s match-up against the New York Jets not only will break up the three way tie for first place in the AFC East, but should also show a preview of a possible late round playoff game. The Patriots cut ties with the baggage laden Albert Haynesworth after he suited up for just six...

Video: Haynesworth on joining Bucs

Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth considered signing with the Bucs a few years ago, when he was a free agent. He said Tampa Bay made him an offer, but he chose to sign a $100 million deal with the Redskins.

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…

Black Rhinoceros Officially Extinct (Like New England Patriot Super Bowl Hopes)

DATELINE: HUMOR! The New England Patriots may be about to join the Dead Dodo Club where they will meet the other new member of the group, the black rhinoceros. With the venue for victory no longer respected at Gillette Stadium, Patriot Nation is blaming the endangerment of the Patriots on the mismanagement of the wildlife preserve by Bill Belichick. The Patriots have gone...
