Believe it or not, the worst thing about Ty Law leaving the Patriots after the 2004 season was not how bad the classy cornerback looked in an ugly Jets uniform.
Law’s departure, while certainly a gut punch at the time, was also the end of an era in New England.
The Patriots, who had won three Super Bowls in four years behind Bill Belichick and Tom Brady in a way that made some wonder whether this group would ever lose (Brady was undefeated in the playoffs until the following year), were on the eve of a long drought of postseason success when Law left the team the way many other veterans under Belichick’s reign have. The Patriots would win playoff games here and there, and they would even return to the Super Bowl twice, but New England never regained the championship form of those early years — and it wasn’t a coincidence that that happened after Law left.
The Patriots built their early success on the back of an excellent defense, and the ball-hawking secondary led by Law was a huge ...

Aqib Talib has been the MVP of the 2013 New England Patriots. That was most evident on Sunday night when he shut down Matt Ryan and his elite receiving crew. Not since Ty Law was roaming the secondary have the Patriots had a definitive, top-tier, shutdown corner. It is clear they have that in Talib.

It was another strong performance from Patriots rookie Kenbrell Thompkins, who caught 6 balls on 11 targets for 127 and a Touchdown. This marked the first game in which he has caught more than 50% of his targets and he looked like a legit receiver against the Falcons, though he did have two more dropped passes. Fellow rookie Aaron Dobson got roughed up on a questionable hit in the...
Austin Collie is back in the NFL, he has work outs with almost every team in the NFL, but today he was given another shot. Let’s face it, Tom Terrific can use Collie if he can turn into the old Colts form. Collie has been in and out of football with concussions. He has had […]

FOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots are sitting pretty at 4-0 a quarter of the way into the season.
It hasn’t been an easy unbeaten stretch, but New England tops the AFC East thus far with wins over the conference-rival Bills and Jets. There have been some rough moments and close games, but if anything, that just gives Bill Belichick more teaching points after games. He would probably...

A good sign that a team is about to release you is when you barely play any snaps. That was the case for Patriots TE Zach Sudfeld. CBS Sports has reported that the Pats have decided to part ways with the player that was supposedly going to fill the void of Aaron Hernandez. That didn’t exactly go according to plan, but all hope for Sudfeld isn’t lost. If no one claims him from...

The Patriots went into Atlanta on Sunday night and put a stamp on their first landmark win of the season. Even after improving to 4-0 for just the fourth time in his career, Tom Brady still doesn’t seem impressed.
“We’re doing OK,” Brady said during his weekly appearance on WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan Morning Show. “We’re just trying to grind it out.
Brady threw for...
