Welcome to the Weekend Warrior, your web-based congregation for water-cooler discussion. We will get you up to speed on what you missed over the past few days and what's on this weekend's itinerary. At worse, this will give you a five-minute respite from being productive at work or school. Our sporting culture is infused with high-end contentions: LeBron versus Kobe. Should college athletes be paid? Tecmo or NBA Jam . Each arena facilitates its share of debate, yet few radiate the zeal and meditation from the following NFL argument: Peyton Manning or Tom Brady? As the progression of both stars coincided with the league's rise as America's new national pastime, the clash between the two quarterbacks intensified in magnitude. Proponents of the New England field general signaled three championships as evidence of prevalence, while Manning backers pointed to his record-setting numbers at the position. These figures were belittled by the Brady crowd, identifying and m...

Brady’s New Bunch

Tom Brady faces an interesting challenge on Thursday night, which is finding a new go-to receiver. Tight end Rob Gronkowski continues to rehab from back and arm injuries and wide receiver Danny Amendola, who was the Patriots’ leading receiver in week one, will likely not play tonight due to a groin injury. Also, running back [...] [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website...

Peyton Manning primed for big year with Broncos

So it's absurd to think Peyton Manning can keep this up, a pace to throw for 112 touchdowns and 7,392 yards this season. Don't laugh. Defenses sure aren't. Surrounded by the best targets he's ever had, operating a turbocharged assault at altitude with a right arm that's stronger and a body that's much less of a question mark, Manning just might put up record...

Tom Brady, Patriots Have to Be Patient With Rookie Wide Receivers, Have No Need to Add Veteran to Group (Mailbag)

The Patriots squeaked one out on Thursday night thanks to their suddenly stout defense. Tom Brady and the offense weren’t much help, providing just 13 points, all of which came in the first half. But there’s no need to panic yet. Basically every key piece is coming back and the schedule doesn’t get too difficult until Week 4 when the team travels down to Atlanta. It will be...

Tom Brady Becomes Second Quarterback in NFL History to Throw Touchdown in 50 Consecutive Games

Tom Brady has been in some rare company throughout pretty much his entire career. On Thursday, he added another achievement to his already lengthy list. With his first quarter touchdown to rookie receiver Aaron Dobson, Brady joined Saints quarterback Drew Brees as the only two quarterbacks in NFL history to throw a touchdown in 50 consecutive games. Brees set the new record last...

Manning brothers to collide in N.Y.

A record-setting performance has Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos flying high as they roll into MetLife Stadium. Eli Manning can't say the same as he and the New York Giants look to get back on track after a disheartening season-opening effort.

Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos Favored in Sibling Rivalry Matchup Against Eli Manning, New York Giants

Week 1 was fantastic but expect Week 2 to be just as good thanks to some tantalizing quarterback matchups. Colin Kaepernick (San Francisco 49ers) and Russell Wilson (Seattle Seahawks) lead their respective teams in the Sunday nighter; Robert Griffin III (Washington Redskins) and Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers) will both try to keep their teams out an 0-2 hole; and the Manning brothers...

Tom Brady: I have to improve my body language

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his receivers had a frustrating night on Thursday. Dropped balls, slight overthrows, sloppy conditions, you name it, marred the productivity of a usually remarkably efficient offense. Brady ended up having an extremely sub-par night, especially statistically. For the first time in four years, Brady completed less than fifty […]The...

Tom Brady on Pats offense: ‘We have a long way to go’

The New England Patriots are 2-0 after beating the New York Jets 13-10 Thursday night. But they punted 11 times and managed just nine first downs after leading the NFL in points and yards last season. “I’m glad we won, but we just obviously have a lot of room for improvement,” said Patriots quarterback

Thinking 'Bout Thursday - Patriots vs Jets

The New England Patriots should have won this game by a lot more than 3 points, but Tom Brady got no help from Aaron Dobson, despite the TD, which by the way was a beautiful play to watch unfold.  A couple drives later, Dobson dropped a pass while running towards the sideline and on the very next play, drops a deep pass that he had before falling to the ground.  There is a silver...

Why the Patriots offense is fine

No, this is not a misleading headline. But it does come with some disagreement from some readers (this means you, the one sitting at your computer reading this message) and that is expected. I mean, fan of the Patriots or not. You do have all the reason to complain, but I'm going to give you a few good reasons not to. Starting with the ugly, the Patriots offense only obtained...
