"London calling at the top of the dial, an' after all
this, won't you give me a smile?"
That line from the Clash's 1979 hit "London
Calling," which you'll likely hear an inordinate amount until kickoff on
Sunday, might have best summed up Patriots fans' feelings heading into this
weekend's showdown just across the pond.
A few early season letdowns and the Patriots seeming inability
to close games late had people wondering what happened to Tom Brady's
Well, fact is, Brady might have been right in
saying that New England fans were spoiled by all of the early success. New England's been in every game they've played this season,
losing three games by a combined four points, yet suddenly people are hiding
their kids, wives and husbands from this terrible tragedy.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves, people. This is still a
team that's made the playoffs in eight of the past 10 season...
BEST OF MAXIM
The NFL's annual trip to London has become less a football game and more a diplomatic mission in an effort to globalize the game and make players like Tom Brady as popular across the pond as they are here in the states.
This will be the second time that Brady and the Patriots have made the pilgrimage to England, bringing their fast-paced version of football...
The Patriots' jaunte across the pond to England is not a vacation -- Tom Brady is making that clear.
After a six hour flight that moved the team's collective watch five hours ahead, however, the Patriots actually did head out for a romp in the park. While the Rams practiced in a field at their hotel, New England took to London's famous -- and very public...
With the experience of playing in London still fresh in his mind, Tom Brady has been focusing on some special preparations for his return to the British capital.
The New England Patriots (4-3) will play a regular-season game in London for the second time in four years on Sunday when they face the St. Louis Rams (3-4) at Wembley Stadium, the iconic venue that is the home of England...
Are the Patriots wins and losses still determined by how productive Tom Brady is under center this season?Large in part, yes if Brady has a **** game then things don't look good for us. But consider this:The Patriots are now carrying the 5th best rushing offense in the NFL, averaging about 149 yards per game between Ridley, Vereen, Woodhead, and Bolden. In comparison to the past...
Who will represent the AFC in Superbowl XLVIII?
Will a real AFC football team please stand up… I understand Halloween is around the corner and everyone is trying to changeup their identity, but after the first seven weeks of the NFL season, it feels like every team from the American Football Conference has been celebrating Halloween earlier than scheduled. From the 16 teams that...
QB Tom Brady
Brady has been a solid performer in terms of fantasy points the past few weeks, but he hasn’t really gone on a soul-crushing scoring binge since the Buffalo game. I think that trend could continue this week with several elements of the passing game nursing injuries. I think Brady puts up around 300 yards and two scores, but projecting anything more would be overly...
WHAT DID HE SAY?
Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III has proved to be a very mature, highly savvy young man that belies his age and experience, both on the field and off of it. But if he’s anything like most people — which is arguable — RG3 probably cringed after recently taking part in an interview with [...]
Credit to CelticsLife's one and only EK on the pic.
Hey, with so many Patriots fans ragging on an aging Brady, how about injecting a little youth to the position. Rondo did play QB in high school after all.
Now, as for Tom Brady as a point guard. I think he's got the vision but not really the athleticism. If the Celtics ran a purely half court offense and just let Tom...
A.B. After the Tom Brady recently referred to the Patriots’ trip to London as being “all business”, I had to get my hands on Bill Belichick’s list of restricted activities. So, I sent my mole on a mission to infiltrate the very fortress that is Gillette Stadium, and bring back to me the details. Here’s what I found out:
#1 – Julian Edelman is not allowed to rent a moped...
The New York Jets will host the Miami Dolphins Sunday at the Meadowlands, which not only is another divisional game but also a "must win". Coming off a heartbreaking loss to the New England Patriots, the Jets need to win this game against the Dolphins and also I think shows what kind of team going forward the Jets are going to be and here's why.After playing their most...
It's Week 8 in the NFL, which means that we are on the brink of the halfway point of the season. This is the time where we ought to have a pretty good handle on who is hot and who is not. But it has been an unusual year with lots of old faces in strange places and rookies running the show in their place.Is it mediocrity, parity, or something out of the Twilight Zone? Perhaps...
People are starting to catch on to this game that the NFC West is playing with everybody. As soon as the talk arises of this division being the best in football, they combine to go 2-6 in two weeks.There are still three teams above .500, but after a couple of rough weeks, three teams are heading into this weekend as underdogs. All four squads are at their best with their backs against...
The New England Patriots are 4-3 and look like a very mediocre football team right now.
“The Patriots are one of the best teams in the NFL”, well at least that is what everyone was saying before the season started. After the week one beat down of the Tennessee Titans, it looked like those people were correct, but since then it has been a different...
