The Patriots were shocked by how small Red Sox players were when they visited Gillette Stadium last week. Perhaps that’s because, despite the Patriots once being home to two of the smallest players in the league in Wes Welker and Danny Woodhead, the Red Sox came in looking even smaller. The word “tiny” is being rolled out again after the two former New England players faced each other this week as the Broncos visited the Chargers. Welker’s team came out on top, 28-20, but he and Woodhead made sure to find each other after the game to say hello. Their greeting apparently allowed another opportunity to poke fun at the size of the two. Welker, at 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds, and Woodhead, at 5-foot-8 and 200 pounds, are both well undersized compared to their peers. Both got their chance to prove themselves in the NFL on one of the few teams that knows how to make the most of players no matter their size or skills. But both are still comparatively sized or bigger than the average man — or b...

Danny Woodhead doesn’t think his game-winning touchdown should have been reversed

Running back Danny Woodhead had a touchdown taken away via replay review in the Chargers’ loss to the Washington Redskins last week. A touchdown that would have given the Chargers the lead with less than 30 seconds left in the game. Instead the Chargers settled for a field goal after failing to punch it in for the one yard line. According to Michael Gehlken of the U-T San Diego...

How The New England Patriots Are Succeeding Without Wes Welker

In only six years, Wes Welker caught more passes than any other Patriot, coming up short to only Stanley Morgan in total yards receiving (by a mere 2893 yards). He had become Tom Brady's primary playmaker and safety-valve. He also just happened to be on the receiving end of the longest touchdown pass in New England Patriots' history at exactly one yard under a hundred.And...

PHOTO: Anne Hathaway, in his jersey, looks like Danny Woodhead

Both listed at about 5′ 8″ Anne Hathaway and Danny Woodhead can both fill out the San Diego Chargers running back’s jersey nicely. Or as Uproxx put it, maybe she has a thing for the scrappy one’s, in which case Danny Woodhead is perfect, after all he is the working man’s Darren Sproles. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Anne Hathaway Reps Danny Woodhead, Wears Former Patriot’s Jersey While Walking Dog (Photo)

Apparently, Danny Woodhead‘s success in San Diego this season is gaining him some celebrity fans. The former Patriots running back has become one of Philip Rivers‘ favorite targets in his first season with the Chargers, hauling in a team-high 53 catches for 408 yards and four touchdowns through nine games. That appears to have caught the eye of Academy Award-winning actress Anne...

Glad to know that Anne Hathaway is a @Chargers + @danny__woodhead...

Peyton Manning to have MRI Monday: ‘I’m pretty sore’

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning went down late in Denver’s 28-20 win against the San Diego Chargers after completing a 9-yard pass to Demaryius Thomas. “I don’t know,” Manning said when asked what’d happened, via the team’s website. “I think somebody was around my feet. I have to see the play. I don’t know who it was or what happened exactly, but they were near...

Who will lead the Patriots in catches to end the year?

Catching the ball has been a bit more of a demanding task for the Patriots this year than in season's past. Week after week, game after game, the Patriots seemingly can't catch balls in key situations like Wes Welker did in the Super Bowl. While the Patriots have picked up speed at exactly the right time in the season, during their bye week, the Patriots still have a lot...
