The Awesome Boston:
A.B. After the Tom Brady recently referred to the Patriots’ trip to London as being “all business”, I had to get my hands on Bill Belichick’s list of restricted activities. So, I sent my mole on a mission to infiltrate the very fortress that is Gillette Stadium, and bring back to me the details. Here’s what I found out:
#1 – Julian Edelman is not allowed to rent a moped and drive endless circles around Lambeth Bridge Roundabout with Danny Woodhead yelling, “Look Woody, Big Ben…Parliament.”
#2 – The Gronk is not allowed within 100 feet of Pippa Middleton.
#3 – Devan McCourty cannot hang out with Prince Harry because neither of them have been able to cover anything.
#4 – Wes Welker is not allowed inside Windsor Castle for fear that he might drop something at a key moment during the visit.
#5 – Tom and Giselle are not allowed to sunbathe in the nude with Prince William and Kate.
#6 – Dan Connolly must avoid “bangers and beans” per the request of Tom Brady.
#7 – Bob Kraft, the n

The NFL's annual trip to London has become less a football game and more a diplomatic mission in an effort to globalize the game and make players like Tom Brady as popular across the pond as they are here in the states.
This will be the second time that Brady and the Patriots have made the pilgrimage to England, bringing their fast-paced version of football...
The Patriots' jaunte across the pond to England is not a vacation -- Tom Brady is making that clear.
After a six hour flight that moved the team's collective watch five hours ahead, however, the Patriots actually did head out for a romp in the park. While the Rams practiced in a field at their hotel, New England took to London's famous -- and very public...
A rematch of Super Bowl XXXVI, it was Tom Brady who led the underdog Patriots to a victory against the St. Louis Rams. It may have been the last time they were actually underdogs.
Technically, the Rams are the home team but they are playing the sixth annual game at Wembley Stadium in London.
The Rams (3-4) arrived at Heathrow airport early Tuesday morning, and a few hours later they...
With the experience of playing in London still fresh in his mind, Tom Brady has been focusing on some special preparations for his return to the British capital.
The New England Patriots (4-3) will play a regular-season game in London for the second time in four years on Sunday when they face the St. Louis Rams (3-4) at Wembley Stadium, the iconic venue that is the home of England...
Are the Patriots wins and losses still determined by how productive Tom Brady is under center this season?Large in part, yes if Brady has a **** game then things don't look good for us. But consider this:The Patriots are now carrying the 5th best rushing offense in the NFL, averaging about 149 yards per game between Ridley, Vereen, Woodhead, and Bolden. In comparison to the past...
Who will represent the AFC in Superbowl XLVIII?
Will a real AFC football team please stand up… I understand Halloween is around the corner and everyone is trying to changeup their identity, but after the first seven weeks of the NFL season, it feels like every team from the American Football Conference has been celebrating Halloween earlier than scheduled. From the 16 teams that...
QB Tom Brady
Brady has been a solid performer in terms of fantasy points the past few weeks, but he hasn’t really gone on a soul-crushing scoring binge since the Buffalo game. I think that trend could continue this week with several elements of the passing game nursing injuries. I think Brady puts up around 300 yards and two scores, but projecting anything more would be overly...
It is no secret to anyone that has seen the Patriots play this season that they are struggling when it comes to closing out games. No lead has seemed safe against the porous secondary that is currently fielded by Belichick and Company, despite the fact that New England has spent seven first or second round picks on defensive backs over the past five years. Because of the defensive...

Hey, with so many Patriots fans ragging on an aging Brady, how about injecting a little youth to the position. Rondo did play QB in high school after all.
Now, as for Tom Brady as a point guard. I think he's got the vision but not really the athleticism. If the Celtics ran a purely half court offense and just let Tom...

"London calling at the top of the dial, an' after all
this, won't you give me a smile?"
That line from the Clash's 1979 hit "London
Calling," which you'll likely hear an inordinate amount until kickoff on
Sunday, might have best summed up Patriots fans' feelings heading into this
weekend's showdown just across the pond.
A few early...
The New York Jets will host the Miami Dolphins Sunday at the Meadowlands, which not only is another divisional game but also a "must win". Coming off a heartbreaking loss to the New England Patriots, the Jets need to win this game against the Dolphins and also I think shows what kind of team going forward the Jets are going to be and here's why.After playing their most...
It's Week 8 in the NFL, which means that we are on the brink of the halfway point of the season. This is the time where we ought to have a pretty good handle on who is hot and who is not. But it has been an unusual year with lots of old faces in strange places and rookies running the show in their place.Is it mediocrity, parity, or something out of the Twilight Zone? Perhaps...
Four possessions, four touchdowns for the Patriots in the first half. New England leads St. Louis 28-7 at the break in London. Shane Vereen scored on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line to give the Pats a 14-7 lead. With 6:51 left in the second quarter, Tom Brady found Rob Gronkowski for a 7-yard touchdown. Gronk celebrated London style, by imitating a British Royal Guard march...
Despite the NFL’s best efforts to disappoint its lusted after international market, this year’s game in London actually has a fairly even matchup for once. Even if said game, as Peter King noted, deprives the baseball obsessed people of St. Louis a chance to see Tom Brady play in their town. I’m sure they’ll get over it.
On Saturday, Gronk got to show the Brits what true...
