Patriots safety Ross Ventrone has been involved in 21 transactions this season, meaning his status typically varies week to week. That unpredictability was the subject of Kenny Mayne's recent "Mayne Event" segment. During the lighthearted ESPN skit, Ventrone set up an "Occupy Gillette" tent following his 20th transaction of the season.

Tom Brady Says He Sucked In Postgame Conference

I gave Ray Lewis praise for his post game conference comments, and in the same breath I have to give some to Tom Brady.  Tom had an unusually poor performance against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship game on Sunday, to say the least.  Tom finished the game 22 for 36 passing, 2 interceptions and a 57.5 QB rating.  However, as good players are known to do, he told it...
