It’s been a long time since the New England Patriots have won a Super Bowl. Yes they have participated in and lost two to the Giants,but haven’t won since 2005 after winning back to back titles.
Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich is a new aged Patriot trying to learn the Patriot way. Even though media types and analyst may sometimes treat and refer to the Patriots as a dynasty, Ninkovich told WEEI that this group of Patriots can not live off the rings of the past, and the Pats are not a dynasty.
“That whole era is over with. It’s gone,” said Ninkovich of the team that won Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII and XXXIX. “So this is a whole new team. It’s a different bunch of guys. We all have to experience it and learn for ourselves what it’s like. Getting in the Super Bowl last year and losing left a bad taste in my mouth.
“I would have liked to get back this year, but that wasn’t the way it happened. You take all the lessons in life and learn from them, and put your best foot forward the next year.”
I applaud Ninkovich for saying it. I understand some will wonder why a Patriots player felt the need to say but at least he’s realistic about where his team is right now.

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,...
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...
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...
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.
Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker spoke briefly on his contract status following his team's loss in the AFC Championship game on Sunday, saying he was "not worried" about his pending free agency at the moment.
After playing this season under the franchise tag after he and the team failed to reach a long-term deal last summer, Welker is set to become a free agent...
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...
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...

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...
