One year has made all the difference for the New England Patriots offense

The New England Patriots finish their first week of training camp and the storylines around the team are in stark contrast to 2013. Last year, the Aaron Hernandez saga was in full swing with the tight end’s shocking arrest, release and non-stop news all summer. Add in a dose of Tebow-mania as the most talked about third-string quarterback dominated the non-Hernandez related drama...

Danny Amendola needs to shine in training camp

PhotAlthough many believe that Danny Amendola is a lock to make the roster, I say pump the brakes on the Amendola train. Amendola was brought in to replace Welker, but was out played by Julian Edelman. If he does not show the spark and health that we want to see then he may be cut from the 53 man roster.He has the ability to be a 100 reception receiver, nobody is questioning that...

The New England Patriots top five roster battles

1. Receiver Depth Writer Tanner Howard had a great take on the WR position this week. Let’s take it step further and assume that Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Aaron Dobson and Matthew Slater are locks. Brandon LaFell and Thompkins should be next in line, while four rookies duke it out for a spot that might not even exist. Expect Jeremy Gallon (Michigan) to provide depth in the...

Camp Preview: Which New England Patriots receivers will step up?

Not much has changed for the Patriots at the wide receiver position, but there is reason to expect bigger things out of the young corps in 2014. Entering training camp, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola lead this group of talented – but not yet proven – youngsters. Edelman’s breakout 105-reception campaign in 2013 makes him a virtual lock for this season’s starting lineup...

Amendola Still Has Plenty of Potential

Danny Amendola, 28-year-old wide receiver for the New England Patriots, hasn’t exactly been the most trustworthy player throughout his career. He hasn’t made it through a full season without injury since 2010, and even when he plays, he hasn’t been spectacular. He averaged around 53 YPG last year and only managed to bring in 2 TDs. That being said, Amendola is the second oldest...
