Found September 19, 2013 on Patriots Life:
Yesterday Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe, who typically focuses on the Celtics, wrote a lengthy piece explaining why the Patriots should sign 39-year old free-agent wide-out Terrell Owens to shore up their issues at wide receiver. TO last played for the Bengals on 2010 Here is an excerpt from Washburn's article explaining why the Patriots should "give TO a look": The Patriots failed in recent experiments with Chad Johnson and Brandon Lloyd, but they desperately need an upgrade at receiver. Their Super Bowl window is closing, so the club cannot be so conservative and cautious when seeking talent. Owens is not asking for a multiyear deal or 150 targets, just an opportunity to show his skills at the practice facility sometime soon.; See the difference between the three receivers mentioned, is that when the Pats brought in Lloyd and Ocho, they still had substantial talent. TO, on the other hand, does not have much, if anything left in the tank. If he did he would b...

Julian Edelman's Week 2 targets lead the league but note that Aaron Dobson saw more looks than fellow rookie despite fewer snaps (WR/TE Targets Review Week 2)

No one was surprised to see Julian Edelman wind up on top of the Patriots’ pecking order with Amendola missing their Week 2 contest against the Jets but most will be surprised with 18 targets. The 6.0 YPC is wonting but that type of volume can’t be ignored. You’ll want him in your lineup as long as Amendola is injured (the timeline remains ambiguous, though it’s good to hear...

WATCH: How Richard Sherman works out in the offseason

Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks is considered by many to be the best cornerback in the National Football League, but  he is also one of the most polarizing figures in the league due to his flamboyant tendencies and loquacious nature.  Richard Sherman posted the following video on his Facebook fan page, along with “Click to see my secret off-season training video”: ...

Hernandez friend due in court on accessory charge

An associate of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez is facing arraignment on an accessory charge in the case in which Hernandez is charged with murder. Ernest Wallace of Bristol, Conn., is to appear Thursday afternoon in Fall River Superior Court. He was indicted last month on a charge of being an accessory to murder after the fact.

Tom Brady Says Patriots ‘Know How to Play Without’ Rob Gronkowski (Video)

Rob Gronkowski has spent much more time on the sideline over the last calendar year than the Patriots would prefer. The tight end missed seven games last season (including playoffs), and he has been a spectator for the first two contests of the 2013 campaign. His status for Sunday’s matchup against Tampa Bay remains unclear — Gronkowski repeatedly referred to himself as “day...

Tom Brady is a Wrecking Ball (Video)

A fan in Pittsburgh was apparently crying in his Iron City brewski over the Steelers 0-2 start when he became inspired to mock longtime rival New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. And what better place to voice your frustrations than the internet. Be warned, Patriots Lifer's: Once seen it can never be unseen. @TheGuruGS

Ex-NFL player reacts to trashed house

An estimated 300 teenagers threw a party at the house of Brian Holloway over Labor Day weekend, authorities say, causing a reported $20,000 in damage to the property of the former New England Patriots and Los Angeles Raiders left tackle. That sentence might normally make Holloway sound like the coolest irresponsible uncle ever, except there's a catch: Holloway spends most of...

Rob Gronkowski Says He Has Progressed Since Last Week, Won’t Confirm If He Will Play Sunday

Rob Gronkowski threw out a lot of rhetoric on Wednesday afternoon as he met with the media in the locker room. He talked about how he’s day to day, improving every day and progressing every week. The All-Pro tight end said he feels like he’s progressed since last week and that he feels “way closer than three weeks ago.” Gronkowski would not confirm whether he will or will...

The Seattle Seahawks have placed left tackle Russell Okung on injured reserve with a designation to return after injuring a toe against the San Francisco 49ers last week. Okung injured his left big toe blocking 49ers defensive end Justin Smith on the final play of the first quarter. Coach Pete Carroll says Okung suffered a torn ligament in his toe and the injury is expected to...

Pete Carroll Once Complained About Crowd Noise (And Got His Way)

In light of the crotchety Niners faithful complaining about crowd noise at CenturyLink Field, it should be noted that just over a decade ago, after a tough 30-27 overtime loss to Washington State University in Pullman, then-Trojans head coach Pete Carroll led the charge to ban the infamous ThunderStix which had become ubiquitous in college stadiums and arenas. Citing the policy that...

Behold The Glorious 49ers Fan Bitterness

The biggest storyline coming out of the Seahawks’ blowout win over the 49ers on Sunday night was how stifling the crowd noise was for the San Francisco offense. That tends to happen when the stadium sets a world record decibel level for a sporting event.While no one likes to see their team lose to a hated division rival, rather than just lick their wounds and move on, some 49ers...

The Seahawks Week 2 stats don’t lie – vs. 49ers

Love for the D-Line Generally when I’m writing these “Seahawks Stats Don’t Lie” pieces, there is but one recipient of the weekly honour. As a creature of habit (aren’t we all) it was going to take a performance of epic proportions from any one position group or multitude of players to digress from this selection process, of sorts. With that being said, it is eerily suiting...

NFL Week Three: Buccaneers @ Patriots

Schiano and Belichick rekindle their relationship after a summer of practices and a preseason game. A win is a win.
