You can't replace Rob Gronkowski, but you can fill the space he used to take up. Well, sort of.New England Patriots defensive lineman Marcus Forston was called up from the practice squad Saturday, a day before the AFC Championship game, to fill the empty roster spot made by the tight end Gronkowski, who was officially placed on the Injured Reserve list at the end of last week.Forston saw the field just once during the regular season in a Week 3 loss to the the Baltimore Ravens, who New England faces Sunday.The 6-foot-2, 310-pound rookie free agent out of Miami came out of training camp with a spot on the 53-man roster but was demoted to the practice squad at the end of September.Follow Nick @NickStDenisFollow AFC East Daily @AFCEastDaily

For years the Patriots under the guidance of Belichick and quarterbacking skills of Tom Brady have dominated the NFL. The Patriots are looking for a repeat of last years AFC Championship game but they must not be thinking about the Ray Lewis retirement Affect. Lewis is inspiring his Ravens teammates to play at a level that is elevated. When the game starts Sunday, you can bet Lewis...
Patriots RB Stevan Ridley wears interesting post game outfit
I know New England Patriots running back Stevan Ridley suffered a head injury in Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens, and I take no delight in that, but….this post game get up? What was he thinking?
Verrrrrry interesting, to say the least.
Ridley wore a blue grown folks onesie, a pair of white moon...
Bill Belichick was understandably disappointed with the Patriots’ performance on Sunday, and his frustration got the best of him after the game.
Belichick, who was somewhat defensive and succinct in his postgame news conference, skipped out on an interview with CBS following Sunday’s AFC Championship loss, which Shannon Sharpe called “unacceptable.” Sharpe said that you can’t...
Bill Belichick Coach of The Decade (by patriotsfootballplc)
Thanks to @OliverBThomas for the link. Love it!
Shannon Sharpe of CBS ripped Bill Belichick last night for being a "poor sport." After the game there is always an interview with the losing coach, an interview that Belichick did not do. So, Sharpe decides he needs to give his much-sought-out-for(sarcasm) opinion. Heres what he said:
"There's something to be said about being gracious in defeat," Sharpe...
(homage of an awesum pic from The Patriots Place)
FOXBORO, Mass. — Coming in to Sunday night’s game, the Patriots had a big advantage over the Ravens from the first time the two teams faced each other — a revamped secondary.
Unfortunately, that upgrade in the defensive backfield didn’t last long in the AFC Championship Game, as newcomer Aqib Talib got injured with just over five minutes left in the first quarter. After the...

None of the subsequent text you’re about to read matters; just as none of the endless hours of conversation breaking down the Patriots 28-13 defeat at the hands of the Ravens matters. You want storylines? There are plenty. You want culprits? There are plenty. But remember – and I can’t stress this enough – none of these narrative arcs really matter.
In the aftermath of...
It made for great story lines all week. The upstart, emotional Ravens, playing for Ray Lewis' retirement, come to New England seeking revenge against a superior offense.Joe Flacco, set to prove that he is in the same league as Tom Brady, needs to repeat his performance from a week earlier in Denver; can New England's defense rise to the challenge, or are they as weak as everyone...
Philadelphia Eagles new head coach Chip Kelly talks about his job ahead, the team and his take on the Patriots with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick
For the second consecutive year, the Patriots and Ravens will square off in the AFC Championship with a ticket to the Super Bowl on the line. Last year, the Patriots squeaked out a 23-20 win thanks to old pal Billy “Ray Finkle” Cundiff:
No matter how many times I see that missed kick I will never understand how in the hell he managed to miss that. I will also never stop enjoying...
