A lot -- probably too much -- has been made about the boo-boo on Tom Brady's nose that the quarterback suffered on Sunday. There has also probably been too much made about Wes Welker's limited role in the Patriots' offense in the same game. So naturally, it was Welker who summed up Brady's situation better than anyone else. "He's such a good-looking guy," Welker said of Brady, according to the Boston Herald. "Obviously, he gets banged up, and he's probably the toughest metrosexual I've ever come across." It's a little unclear how many metrosexuals Welker has come across, especially given...

Tom Brady on nose: 'I never mind a little blood'

Blood, sweat and touchdowns. Tom Brady obviously subscribes to that theory, leading the Patriots to a convincing victory over the Titans on Sunday despite getting his nose busted up in the first half. "I never mind a little blood," Brady said after the game. "[It's] not my usual look. That was the only good [hit] I took. It's always fun winning." Brady...

Wes Welker Receives Cut in Playing Time

Wes Welker owners are cursing themselves for using an early round pick on the New England receiver, after a three-catch, 14 yard performance against the Titans week one. ESPNboston’s Mike Reiss reports that in addition to limited targets (Only 5 passes from Brady), Welker was on the field for just 43 of New England’s 67 offensive snaps. For a player that lined up for nearly 90...

Tom Brady Reminds Everyone That He's All About Winning, Everything Else Is 'Bunch of BS'

Tom Brady made another little bit of NFL history on Sunday afternoon, as he passed another legend in the league's record book. The Patriots quarterback threw two touchdown passes in New England's 34-13 win, giving him 302 for his storied career. That number puts him ahead of another quarterbacking legend, John Elway, on the all-time passing touchdowns list. How does Brady...

Tom Brady gets nose bloodied on sack

Tom Brady was left with a bloody nose after being sacked by Kamerion Wimbley in the second quarter of Sunday’s Patriots-Titans game. Wimbley chased down Brady who was trying to escape the pressure by rolling to his right, and the linebacker clawed him with a paw that went through the facemask. Brady put his hand toward his nose immediately, knowing that he was hurt. Since that...

Patriots Already Phasing Out Wes Welker In New England?

If their dominating week 1 victory against the Tennessee Titans was any indication on Sunday, it appears as if the New England Patriots may already be working on phasing out wide receiver Wes Welker as the team prepares to see what life may look without No. 83 next season. We all know teh background when it comes to Welker and the Patriots. The receiver is unhappy with his contract...

Report: Patriots Work Out Quarterback Curtis Painter, Cornerback Chris Carr, Six Others

Most Patriots fans would be happy if Tom Brady took every snap this season, but beyond the future Hall of Famer, New England has just one quarterback waiting in the wings. That could explain the recent interest in working out QBs. The Patriots worked out eight players, including quarterbacks Curtis Painter and Stephen McGee on Tuesday, according to The other six players...

Fantasy Football: The End Of The Wes Welker PPR Golden Era

From a fantasy owner's perspective, every star is allowed a "stinker" or two. Wes Welker's production over the past five years warrants a pass for yesterday's three-catch performance. With that being said, the signs are pointing to a major decrease in Welker's catches this year.Going back to the offseason - the Patriots signed Brandon Lloyd, and extended...

Juan Eye On: Wes Welker

Wes Welker started his 2012 season with 3 catches for a whopping 14 yards.  While Welker did under perform, there are quite a few mouths to feed on that offense.  Welker is going to get his share but I expect a small drop off in production this year.

Gisele likes Brady's scarred nose

Tom Brady feels fine about his scarred nose as long as his supermodel wife does. There was a faint red mark - but no bandage- near the bridge of his nose as he stood at a podium for his weekly news conference on Wednesday. His nose also was uncovered Monday night during a charity bowling event he attended with New England Patriots teammates and Gisele Bundchen. ''Yeah,...

Stevan Ridley's Ability to Carry Load Could Be Key to Taking Pressure Off Tom Brady, Returning Patriots to Glory

The last time the Patriots had a legitimate No. 1 running back lurking in their backfield, Corey Dillon had just turned 30 years old and Tom Brady was closing in on his third Super Bowl title. Almost eight years later, Stevan Ridley has finally appeared to reinvigorate the Patriots lost art. In an offense where Brady has been the primary, secondary and tertiary focus -- almost since...

Steelers-Broncos Live Blog – Second Half

We clowned on Tom Brady for his goofy studio photos that NBC aired during the Super Bowl, but it’s obvious that whoever the network’s photographer is an old hand at inducing regrettable poses out of athletes. And so there is now Flirty Von Miller, gazing past his hipster glasses to ask you if you need help reaching that top shelf. That was a mostly plodding first half. Apparently...
