The AFC Championship game did not go the way that Tom Brady and the New England Patriots had hoped. Not all is upset with the Patriots loss as twitter exploded with a slue of tweets about #Bradying.
It seems everyone thought that with about 8:27 seconds left in the 4th quarter it was the perfect time to take out the phone and snap a shot of Brady.
Two masked men robbed the suburban Denver home of New England Patriots defensive back Derrick Martin while he was playing in the AFC championship game.
Aurora police spokesman Frank Fania told The Denver Post that the robbers forced their way into Martin's home Sunday night when there was at least one adult and several children there. He says they took numerous items.
For the second straight offseason, wide receiver Wes Welker’s future with the New England Patriots is uncertain.
Quarterback Tom Brady once again made it clear that he wants Welker to come back next season, while talking with Dennis & Callahan Show on Boston sports radio WEEI.
“Everybody knows how I feel about Wes, our whole team feels that way about Wes,” Brady said,...
According to Mike Rodak of ESPN Boston, the “odds are against” S Patrick Chung re-signing with the team.
Rodak mentions that because the Patriots have Devin McCourty, Steve Gregory and Tavon Wilson still on their roster, allowing to leave would have a minimal effect of the depth at safety.
New England’s secondary has struggled considerably in recent years, but it’s not...
Probably a good time to say you should think before you post things on your Facebook or Twitter accounts. Wives of athletes on losing the Patriots sure get frustrated and feisty after playoff losses. Welker’s wife is Anna Burns, a former Miss Hooters, will likely not be watching the Super Bowl or paying attention to any of the hype about Ray Lewis leading up to the game.The...
Athletes seem to love porn stars. Remember when Patriots Rob Gronkowski had fun flicking up with one? Knowing the two seems to attract, this story isn’t shocking to me at all. Former porn star Jazmine Cashmere said someone on the Clippers offered her $10,000 to spend the weekend with him. He made the request via direct message (DM) on Twitter and when she declined, he unfollowed...
It is an experience common to all men to find that, on any special occasion, such as the production of a magical effect for the first time in public, everything that can go wrong will go wrong. Whether we must attribute this to the malignity of matter or to the total depravity of inanimate things, whether the exciting cause is hurry, worry, or what not, the fact remains.
With everyone saying Bill Belichick and Tom Brady were sore losers, I was glad to see this headline. Belichick caused a stir last night when he didn't interview with CBS, a customary thing to do after a game, win or lose. As a result of this, Bill was labeled as unprofessional and a sore loser.
I think John Harbaugh has the biggest say in whether or not Bill is classy or not...
Did Tom Brady try to intentionally kick safety Ed Reed during Sunday’s AFC Championship game? (Credit: AP Photo)
With twenty seconds left in the first half of the AFC Championship, New England quarterback Tom Brady scrambled out of the pocket to pick up a few yards. At the end of the play, Brady kicked his leg up a little too high and looked to be intentionally trying to kick safety...
Yesterday during the AFC Championship game between the Ravens and Patriots, Ravens safety Bernard Pollard delivered the knockout blow to New England’s Super Bowl chances when he knocked Stevan Ridley out the game with a vicious shot.
Pollard who could be referenced to as the Patriot killer for taking out so many Pats over the years, understands it’s a game, and told CSNNE...
The underachieving New England Patriots lost to the tougher Baltimore Ravens 28-13 tonight at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. After going a stellar 13-4, New England again failed in the clutch to earn their first ever title without the benefit … Continue reading →
