Found August 04, 2013 on Sports-Glory:
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady knew he would need time to learn the ins and outs of his new receiver group.  Friday’s practice showed that Brady and the receivers need more time to develop chemistry.

Amendola, Brady make a connection

Coach Bill Belichick changed things up a bit yesterday by having his Patriots scrimmage. The stars of the day? Tom Brady and Danny Amendola. The quarterback and wide receiver only played what amounted to one series and change. But that’s all they needed and it almost wasn’t fair to their teammates. Brady and Amendola looked like they had been working together for years as opposed...

Gronkowski's book provides insight into rehab

Rob Gronkowski has basically become a lost guy in Patriots training camp now a days. The tight end has gone through several surgeries over the off-season, and quite frankly, there isn't much information regarding anything about the surgeries. But now, there may be. Boston.com is reporting that Rob Gronkowski's book gives a valuable insight to his rehab from surgery. They...

New England Patriots: Ranking the Receiving Corps During Camp

When Tom Brady is under center, there is little doubt that the New England Patriots will present a formidable aerial attack for even the best defenses in the league. Brady led a band of cast-aways to an AFC Championship game in 2006 and nearly succeeded in carrying them to a Super Bowl berth.Coming up in 2013 it might seem that he has an impossible task in creating a similar magic...

Report: Rob Gronkowski To Miss First 6 Games of Season On PUP List

If the New England Patriots are to get off to a quick start in the 2013 regular season, it will probably get done on the back of a stout running game, and a physical defense. The Patriots offense though will look like a sham of itself. The Boston Globe is reporting that Rob Gronkowski will miss the first six games of the regular season, because he will be on the PUP list. Gronkowski...

Report: Gronk will likely start the season on the PUP list

Without much of a surprise, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will likely remain on the PUP list when the regular season kicks off next month, according to the Boston Globe. Tight end Rob Gronkowski has almost become a forgotten member of the Patriots as he rehabs from back surgery and sits out training camp. He has attended practices most days in street clothes, but the Patriots...

Danny Amendola Filling Expectations, Julian Edelman’s Return Will Further Strengthen Patriots Receiving Corps (Video)

New England may have lost four of its top five receivers from last season,  but the Patriots new receiving corps has impressed so far in training camp. Danny Amendola had big shoes to fill as he was expected to effectively replace Wes Welker, and so far Amendola has lived up to the expectations. Julian Edelman will also help strengthen the Pats’ passing game as the wide receiver...

Bill Belichick: Danny Amendola has become a “dependable player”

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick sounds very pleased with what he’s seen from wide receiver Danny Amendola so far during camp. “He’s become a very dependable player for us. He doesn’t make many mental errors. He’s a guy who is usually in the right spot and has a good understanding of defenses and what he’s supposed to do. You can tell he’s been in the league for four...

Belichick: Amendola is 'very dependable'

New Patriots WR Danny Amendola is making quite a splash at training camp. For anybody who has had the chance to go to Foxboro and watch one of the team's open practices, you most likely noticed how Amendola sticks out in the crowd. Not based on his size or stature, but #80 is fast... real fast. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw how quickly he could move his feet and...

The Patriots Weight Room Records Board Is Awesome & Surprising

(June 2013) A.B. A few interesting notes here. 1) Tom Brady holds no weight room records. I guess Pats fans will have to settle for MVP’s and Super Bowl Championships instead. 2) Joe Andruzzi squatted 725 pounds; the equivalent of him squatting more than 4 of me on his back. 3) Matt Cassel holds 4 of 8 QB records but still sucks. 4) As of June, Aaron Hernandez’s name was on the...

Tom Brady Third Favorite to Win 2013 NFL MVP Behind Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers

Former San Francisco 49ers legends Joe Montana and Steve Young never won more than two NFL MVP awards in their careers. But if the Patriots’ Tom Brady can win his third MVP this season, he would join Jim Brown, Johnny Unitas, Brett Favre and Peyton Manning as the members of an elite class that have won at least three MVPs. Bovada oddsmakers don’t list Brady as the betting favorite...

Daniel Fells is likely the Patriots top tight end right now

With Rob Gronkowski likely out until after week six of the regular season and Jake Ballard still having knee problems,  Daniel Fells is likely the Patriots’ number one tight end right now, according to the Boston Globe. Daniel Fells is the likely No. 1 tight end at this point, with Michael Hoomanawanui working mostly at H-back, leaving Ballard to fight with Sudfeld to be the No...
