We’ve heard from just about every party involved in the sideline spat between Patriots QB Tom Brady and offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien. Most notable, Brady and O’Brien have spoken. By now, it’s kind of a dead subject. Of course, we’re pretty much only talking about Tim Tebow today, anyway. But talking to reporters in Denver, Patriots WR Wes Welker weighed in and offered some final thoughts. He noted how he was right there when he happened. And after Welker weighed in, it crystallized my thoughts. “I was right there next to him,” Welker said. “Really, it’s nothing that doesn’t happen all the time, so it was really not as big of a deal. Maybe it was a little more excessive than usual, and the cameras did notice. We’re a very highly competitive bunch. Sometimes you have to get your feelings out there and let it be known. Sometimes it’s a way to do things, but it’s not as big a deal as everyone made it out to be. … We’ve all been a part of things like that, even when I was in Mia

Patriots QB Tom Brady focused more on Broncos defense than Tim Tebow

Not everyone is playing along with this week-long Tebow-Mania. With more reporters on hand at Gillette Stadium than usual, Tom Brady didn’t provide too many scintillating quotes about Tim Tebow and his 7-1 record this season.

Zoltan Mesko lies to children everywhere, claims Santa isn’t real

New England players spent their day off by spreading a little holiday cheer, getting wrapped up with their teammates as a part of an annual tradition with the Kraft Foundation.

Photochop Winners: Tom Brady Is Upset With Rex Ryan, Kanye West, Sold-Out Ugg Store

Tom Brady is a pretty unflappable guy. After four Super Bowl appearances (three rings) and countless game-winning drives, Brady is used to pressure and doesn't get rattled or lose his cool much. That's why seeing him look upset in a photo taken during a recent practice was so surprising. Earlier this week, we asked readers to submit their own altered photos explaining why...

In what could be described as a matchup between New England’s “Golden Boy” and Denver’s “Chosen One” (sorry LeBron, but Tebow is like the anti-LeBron in terms of clutch play), we will find out much about the AFC playoff picture.

Broncos see Patriots as big barometer

The Denver Broncos haven't been to the playoffs since 2006, so they're in no position and certainly no mood to judge the quality of the opponents they're dispatching with all this last-minute magic. The seven teams they've beaten during their incredible two-month run since Tim Tebow took over and started engineering second-half comebacks, however, have a combined...
