We at Patriots Life are giving out our post-season awards. Previously, we revealed the New England Patriots 2012 MVP, the Offensive Player of the Year and the Defensive Player of the Year. Now, in an impressive year for rookies, we choose our Rookie of the Year. And the award goes to... It's Cornerback Alfonzo Dennard!If you would have asked me at the half way point of the year who the Patriots rookie of the year was, I would have said, without any hesitation, Chandler Jones. Heck, I even predicted in November he would win the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year. But injuries came and stopped Jones from being the playmaker he was in the first half of the season.If Jones had carried on like that all season, he would get this. But it would have been close with Dennard. Dennard, a 7th round pick, has given us a solid corner who doesn't give up too many big plays. He, along with Aqib Talib, gave the Patriots an NFL caliber cornerback tandem, that could take receivers an...

A strong middle class? Three Patriots account for 35 percent of salary cap

Once upon a time in New England, it was a common phrase to say the Patriots had a strong middle class. The thought was to slightly overpay for players who would sign elsewhere due to lack of opportunities to start, thus creating depth or a “strong middle class.” However, when looking over the Patriots salary cap, there is one glaring contradiction. Tom Brady, Vince Wilfork...

Think there's any chance Cordarelle Patterson would be a good fit for the Patriots' offense, if he happened to fall that far?

Absolutely. He fits the profile of the kind of receiver they’ve lacked, and brings return...

No Guarantee Talib Will Return

Despite his character’s flawed past, Talib would surely be missed by Patriot Nation if he weren’t signed by the team prior to this upcoming season.   You didn’t have to be an avid fan of the 2012 New England Patriots to know that one of their central flaws was the play of their defensive secondary.  And unfortunately for head coach Bill Belichick, who prides himself on the...
