FOXBORO, Mass. — New Patriots rookie wide receiver T.J. Moe may have some trouble watching the highlights from the first Patriots Super Bowl victory when they pop up on the big screen at Gillette Stadium. That’s because Moe was born and raised in Missouri, so naturally he’s a Rams fan.
Moe went out of his way to praise the Patriots organization, mentioning several times that they’ve been to five Super Bowls since 2001. That’s the main reason he came to New England as a rookie free agent. Just don’t ask him about that first big New England win.
“I don’t talk about that,” Moe joked. “I’ll just leave it at that.”
Moe said he’s a St. Louis Cardinals fan as well, but if he sticks around long enough, he can grow to like the Red Sox too.

FOXBORO, Mass. — For years now, rookie and veteran wide receivers have come to Foxboro and had difficulty picking up the Patriots’ playbook. Fortunately, rookies Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce and T.J. Moe have heard how tough the playbook can be to learn, and they’re prepared.
Maybe it’s just naivety from the new Patriots rookies’ part, or maybe they can break the curse of the...

1. LeGarrette Blount was once a starter for Tampa Bay, and a very good looking one at times. However, a decline in performance and a breakout rookie year from Doug Martin, and now he finds himself close to the bottom of the running back depth chart of a team over...
