Take away Danny Amendola, Shane Vereen, and Zach Sudfeld and what do the New England Patriots have? They have an apoplectic Tom Brady. And it is amazing enough that he was able to pull out a win with so few weapons at his disposal.But add to that the deplorable conditions that all the players had to endure...And let's go back and review the losses that Brady has endured this offseason:1. Wes Welker is allowed to walk... all the way to Denver and arch-nemesis Peyton Manning.2. Aaron Hernandez is carted out of Foxboro in handcuffs.3. Danny Woodhead, third-down back extraordinaire, is allowed to leave in free agency.4. Brandon Lloyd, second best receiver from 2012, is released.5. Deion Branch and Donte Stallworth, basically the only other receivers to have much contribution to the Patriots' near-record offense is gone.6. And the aforementioned Rob Gronkowski out with inujuries/surgery/rehab for who knows how long...Tom Brady has only one receiver, Julian Edelman, who caught mor...

Tom Brady’s Night Of *********

Typically the morning after a primetime game, I make a slideshow recap full of GIFs, video and whatnot from the night before, but I feel confident that no one who watched Jets-Patriots wants to relive that horrorshow. And anyone would did miss the original broadcast is better off being spared that experience.If I wanted to make a true representation of what last night was like, I’d...

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...

Report: Danny Amendola could miss 2-6 weeks

NFL Network's Ian Rapaport is reporting New England Patriots' wide receiver Danny Amendola could miss between two and six weeks with a groin injury.

He left the field for the remainder of the half but returned in the third quarter and was instrumental in the Pat's come-from...

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...

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...
