Redemption Story: Week 7 Risers and Fallers

Beyond the huge amount of relief I felt when Nick Folk’s potential game-winning kick ended up in the turf, there was also a sense of justice felt, knowing that the man who blocked the field goal had finally been redeemed.   None of us can forget the incredulous “pushing your own teammate” penalty that was called against Chris Jones in last year’s Week 7 contest against the...

Twitter Tuesday: Tom Brady shows his trust in two new targets

Tom Brady has always been slow to trust new receivers–see Chad Ochocinco and Danny Amendola–but it looks like he’s found a couple of new weapons worth throwing to. Both Brandon LaFell and Brian Tyms had some spectacular plays yesterday, and Brady showed his confidence in them by throwing the ball in their direction even when in double and triple coverage. If they can join Rob...
