The Patriots missed out on going to back to back Super Bowls, but what does that mean for Tom Brady's legacy? On my radio show this week (Football Extra Points) I talked about Tom Brandy and what his legacy was in New England.

The NFL fined Tom Brady for sliding with his cleats high on Ed Reed. Brady apologized to Reed for the slide, which may have led to the fine.
Brady should be fine.
I don’t think it was the worst thing I have ever seen, but the NFL fines players for wearing their socks too high, so I think Brady should be a little lighter in the wallet.
For his part Ed Reed says he isn’t tripping.
“I told him — you know, we talked,” Reed told WJZ-FM in Baltimore. “We talked actually not too long ago, we talked on the phone....

Watching Bill Belichick address the media is something that’s rivaled only by watching paint dry, but apparently there are quite a few people with a strong desire to watch paint dry nowadays. Brian Billick isn’t one of them.
Billick, an NFL analyst who spent nine seasons coaching the Ravens from 1999 to 2007, doesn’t see what all the fuss is about when it comes to Belichick’s...
The NFL is looking into Tom Brady's leg-up slide that hit Ravens
safety Ed Reed in the AFC championship game.
This one little play has certainly gotten a lot of attention. With the final seconds of the second quarter counting down, Tom Brady scrambled, was surrounded by defenders, and then slid awkwardly with his leg going right for Reed's, umm, leg. The Patriots went on to kick a field goal while the Ravens went on to win the game. Apparently that wasn't good enough for some of...
“Leg is feeling alright. A little sore right now,” Reed told WJZ-FM on Monday. “A little slide kick (by Brady), you know what I’m saying. But it’s a tough spot the quarterback’s in. You know, I understand Brady’s point. Him protecting himself. I know he’s a great player. I respect Brady and his game for all it stands for, and I know he’s not a dirty player...

Jason WhitneyTorrey Smith tweeted that he’s never received more rude tweets after a win than last Sunday’s win over the Patriots.
The AFC Championship game may have been decided a couple of days ago, however that hasn’t stopped players from both sides from taking shots at each other. Terrell Suggs ripped the Patriots saying they are arrogant, while Wes Welker’s wife took...
The Patriots were already shallow at wide receiver in 2012, and if they can’t sign both of their free agent slot receivers, it could get even uglier in 2013.
By the end of the season, the Patriots had just Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, Deion Branch, Kamar Aikan and Matthew Slater on their roster. Donte Stallworth and Julian Edelman were placed on season-ending injured reserve and...
