New England Patriots veteran nose tackle Vince Wilfork has gone head-to-head against Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey a few times. It's felt like more.Wilfork will be up against Pouncey, who is now finishing up his second season, when their respective teams square off Sunday. (photo: jdn, Flickr)"It’s rare that you find a center that can pull out into the open field and can block DBs and linebackers, especially up front being able to orchestrate that offensive line and getting everybody in the right position that they need to be in," Wilfork said, via Patriots.com. "... It’s hard to just know that he’s only two years in – that’s the scary thing."He has a very bright future ahead of him and I think those guys, they rally around him. He sets the tone for that team, that offensive line and everybody else just works around of him. ... He’s a very, very good football player and smart."Wilfork, who has been a crucial cog on the Patriots' defensive line f...

Brandon Spikes Opts to Leave Santa Claus an Interesting Gift, As Cookies and Milk Just Won’t Do the Trick

It’s a good thing Santa Claus only works one day a year, because he might need some time to recover. Rather than leaving Jolly Old St. Nick some cookies and milk — something that’s been played out time and time again — Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes was leaning toward a more unconventional approach. Spikes, known in the social media world for his off-the-cuff Twitter...

Might this be the future Miami Dolphins logo?

Miami Dolphins management has made it very clear that a logo change -- along with new uniforms -- is in store this offseason. Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said the new logo would be a mix of modern and retro. What that means exactly has led to much speculation. There have already been a couple of rumored iterations making their way around the Internet, but, on Wednesday, a new image picked...

Vote: If He’s Cleared, Should Rob Gronkowski Sunday Versus the Dolphins?

In sports, it’s a conundrum nearly as old as the ball itself. When staring down at a sure-thing playoff slot but with more regular season to go, do you rest your players, or keep them on the field? Unfortunately, with the patriots and tight end Rob Gronkowski, it’s a little more complicated than even that. Gronkowski has missed every game since Week 11 when he fractured his forearm...

Seven Patriots will play in Pro Bowl, do you even care?

I for one could care less. Who watches this game? It's great for players to be honored with a pro bowl selection but it becomes such a joke of a game. After injuries, etc. there's always a ton of players that get into the Pro Bowl despite probably not deserving it. Andy Dalton played in the Pro Bowl last year. Andy Dalton!Boston.comThe NFL has released the AFC and NFC rosters...

What looked like a complete wasted opportunity when they dropped their home game against the San Francisco 49ers, the Patriots in one week, went from conceding to a harder road in the playoffs to a possible no.1 seed if things play out in...

Report: New Dolphins Logo Features Swimming, Helmet-Less Dolphin (Photo)

The 2012 Miami Dolphins season hasn’t yet ended, but the AFC East team is already looking toward the future. According to UniWatch, a new Dolphins logo has been circulating the internet, and it could take the spot of the team’s current logo. Team CEO Mike Dee neither denied nor confirmed that the team will choose this specific logo, but he did confirm that a new logo will be...

New Miami Dolphins Logo?

 Word is spreading that this could be the new Miami Dolphins logo.  Not sure if it's 100%, but I think I like the old one.  Yes, clearly the Dolphins need a change, but I doubt the logo is what's wrong with the team.  Not sure why, but I dig the small dolphin helmet in the old logo.
