Chandler Jones tries on his brother's UFC belt New England Patriots defensive rookie Chandler Jones appeared on Felger and Mazz on Wednesday to discuss his first year in the NFL (see video above). When asked about his offseason training plans, Chandler revealed that he planned to do some cross training in MMA with his brother, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones. Chandler will head to Albuquerque, NM to work out with his brother at Greg Jackson's gym, known for training MMA stars such as UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, former WEC champions Carlos Condit and Donald Cerrone, and many more elite fighters. How will training MMA help Chandler on the football field? Chandler detailed that he wanted to improve his upper body strength this off-season and work on his hand speed: "That definitely helps you," Jones said. "[Jon] has a boxing coach, a Muay Thai coach and a Jiu-Jitsu coach. That helps a lot when you're tugging, ...

The Patriots lost out on another Super Bowl, what do they need to get back? Mock Draft 1.0

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? 1. Chiefs - Bjoern Warner, DE, Florida State 2....

Patriots may not be willing to place the franchise tag on Aqib Talib

A New England Patriots fan asked Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com if the Patriots might be willing to place the franchise tag on cornerback Aqib Talib. It doesn’t sounds like tagging Talib would make sense for the Patriots. I think the tag would be around $10.6 million for Talib. I think that’s a little rich on the one-year term, but can I have a little more time to think about that...

Top 5 replacement quarterbacks in NFL history

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...

Patriots and Tom Brady need a deep threat

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...

Danny Amendola could replace Wes Welker in New England

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...

Marshall Faulk: The Patriots cheated to beat us

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...

Marshall Faulk still bitter, "cheated out of the Super Bowl" by Patriots

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...

Randy Moss says Kevin Faulk, Patriots taught him 'how to work'

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...

Ed Reed wants to have babies with Bill Belichick, yeah he's signing here

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...
