New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick had no interest in explaining why quarterback Tom Brady and nose tackle Vince Wilfork were limited in Friday's practice, though there's apparently no reason to believe they won't play Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

Vince Wilfork preparing for Tim Tebow AKA “The Slasher”

Tim Tebow has been called a lot of things by a lot of people. Vince Wilfork added another label: slasher. It was Wilfork’s way of describing the 235-pound quarterback, who has a skill set unlike any other QB in the league. “I don’t look at him as a quarterback,” Wilfork said. “He’s a quarterback slash running back slash fullback slash tight end. He’s a slasher. But...

Bill Belichick's new offense features tight ends

It is with complete certainty that I am the only person residing in Colorado, maybe in the country, maybe in the whole wide world, who is more fixated with the success of Bill Belichick than

Zoltan Mesko lies to children everywhere, claims Santa isn’t real

New England players spent their day off by spreading a little holiday cheer, getting wrapped up with their teammates as a part of an annual tradition with the Kraft Foundation. Julian Edelman said that the worst part of being wrapped with Tom Brady is the quarterback's odor. Zoltan Mesko said how he loved this tradition, but then told a lie so egregious that it may not be forgiven...

Fantasy Forecast: Week 15

Tom Brady The Broncos are firmly in the middle of the pack in terms of pass defense. They’ve given up 20 TDs through the air this season, and I think it’s safe to assume they’ll give up around 3 more this week to go along with 300+ yards. If the Broncos keep the game close, Brady might flirt with 400 and 4. Start him with even more confidence than usual. Wes Welker/Deion...

Patriots WR Wes Welker offers final thoughts on the sideline spat… as do I

We’ve heard from just about every party involved in the sideline spat between Patriots QB Tom Brady and offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien. Most notable, Brady and O’Brien have spoken. By now, it’s kind of a dead subject. Of course, we’re pretty much only talking about Tim Tebow today, anyway. But talking to reporters in Denver, Patriots WR Wes Welker weighed in and offered...

Photochop Winners: Tom Brady Is Upset With Rex Ryan, Kanye West, Sold-Out Ugg Store

Tom Brady is a pretty unflappable guy. After four Super Bowl appearances (three rings) and countless game-winning drives, Brady is used to pressure and doesn't get rattled or lose his cool much. That's why seeing him look upset in a photo taken during a recent practice was so surprising. Earlier this week, we asked readers to submit their own altered photos explaining why...

New England Patriots-Denver Broncos Preview and Prediction

The legend of Tim Tebow could reach untold heights with a home win over Tom Brady’s New England Patriots. In what could be described as a matchup between New England’s “Golden Boy” and Denver’s “Chosen One” (sorry LeBron, but Tebow is like the anti-LeBron in terms of clutch play), we will find out much about the AFC playoff picture. With a win, New England can clinch...

Deep Posts: Vince Wilfork has heard quite enough

• Vince Wilfork says he's constantly holding back the urge to tell Rodney Harrison to "Shut the 'f' up." • Recently fired Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley will appear on ESPN's "Audibles," which is kind of like the Kansas City Chiefs of NFL shows. • Speaking of the Chiefs, interim head coach Romeo Crennel has benched Tyler Palko...

The Broncos Offense and Why It Plays to the Patriots' Advantage

In 2006, Bill Belichick went to Florida University to visit old friend Urban Meyer and study the spread offense Meyer was running. Chris Leak was the starting quarterback that year with a much hyped freshman backup Tim Tebow. Leak would be the main signal caller and Tebow would come in as a change of pace, hard running option QB. Belichick wasn’t there to scout Tebow, he was...
