Found September 17, 2013 on NESN.com:
Dink and dunk it was not. Drift and drop may be more accurate. The Patriots exhibited the opposite of precision Thursday night against the Jets, making a game that would end underwater extremely sloppy before rain even fell. The final score was 13-10 New England, but it was surprising that even those points were scored. The teams totaled just 24 first downs (only nine for the Patriots), and neither team averaged more than 4.8 yards a pass. New England was especially horrid on offense. The team that struggled to make connections in the first week of the season against the Bills was even worse Thursday, with Tom Brady and his receivers failing to get on the same page. Receivers often ran wrong routes, and when they ran the right ones, they often dropped passes. The result — other than the win and the kind of experience that will remind the rookies exactly how much they need to work this week — was a poor stat line for Brady. The Hall of Fame-bound quarterback, who passed for more than...

Tom Brady: ‘I’m not Making All the Right Plays’

  The Patriots may have won their first two games of the 2013 season, but the most played images of the Pats two victories was Tom Brady’s disappointed gestures, directed at his inexperienced receiving corps.  Brady went on Boston radio Monday to let everyone know all the blame shouldn’t be place on his young receivers. “I’m not making all the right plays, either,” Brady...

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

Tom Brady addresses the offense's struggles

After only two games this season, it really is difficult to take statistics seriously because of the small portion of games played. Things change quickly in the NFL; teams start off hot then cool down while other teams start awful and then turn things around. So the legitimacy of stats early in the season (especially after only two weeks) is what you choose to make out of it. That...

Tom Brady: Darrelle Revis is the best corner I’ve ever faced

As Tom Brady and the New England Patriots prepare to face off against the Buccaneers this weekend, there’s one familiar face on the other side of the ball that they’ve seen enough of over the past several years.  That face belongs to cornerback Darrelle Revis who faced off against Brady twice year for most of his career. Brady told Patriots.com that Revis is the best corner...

Will the Patriots continue to lean on their defense?

With the Patriots offense not meshing as well as they would have hoped, it has been the defense that has been a pleasant surprise. Throughout the first couple games of the season, the defense has come through in the clutch and has arguably out-performed the Tom Brady led offense. Granted Brady doesn't have much talent around him, but that is still saying a lot since the defense...

Tom Brady Says Darrelle Revis Is Best Cornerback He Has Ever Played Against

FOXBORO, Mass. — If Darrelle Revis needed a boost of confidence going into his first matchup against the Patriots as a member of the Buccaneers, he got it from Tom Brady. Brady had some high praise for the player he used to have to face twice a year. “I’ve never played against anyone who is as good as him,” Brady said. “He’s as good as there is that I’ve ever played...

Just a Little Patience

It will take time for the Patriots rookie receivers to develop, but will Tom Brady have enough patience to wait.

Brady, Manning and Peterson Weren’t Great In Their First Two Games Back Either

Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson had different injuries than Robert Griffin III, and they were on different timelines and in different situations, etc. They’re different players, and, like all people everywhere, each is a precious snowflake. Also, two games is a small sample size, I know, but that’s what we have to work with when analyzing post-devastation RGIII...

Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball Tom Brady Edition (Video)

Miley Cyrus and Tom Brady have released a new version of her music video “Wrecking Ball”?? That would be terrific, but someone did photoshop the New England Patriots QB’s face onto her body. We’re taking a look at the best “Wrecking Ball” video parody I’ve seen so far. NBC Has Michelle Tafoya Doing Weird Things (GIF) Vanilla Ice Performs in Houston with Texan Cheerleaders (GIF)

Donovan McNabb Is Better Than Tom Brady

A bold proclamation indeed, but true?  I believe so. Now understand, Tom Brady will likely go down as one of top-5 quarterbacks of all-time and is a surefire Hall of Famer. Donovan McNabb is on the outside looking in at Canton. Numbers-wise, Brady currently has over 45,000 yards passing, 337 touchdowns, and is still going strong. McNabb hasn’t compiled nearly that number of yards...

Keep Football Weird: 5 Unexpected Oddities from the NFL

I’ve been living south of the border in Portland since December. One of the common phrases in town is “Keep Portland Weird.” It’s all over bumper stickers and has been the main reason the show Portlandia has blossomed into a hit.

Dobson: "I've got to be better."

                       In April during the NFL draft season Aaron Dobson was known for his amazingly reliable hands at Marshall. Now that is in question after he went 3/9 for 56 yards and a touchdown during the home opening win at Gillette stadium. Dobson said after the game, "that’s definitely not acceptable to drop the ball". "I’m a receiver, so...
