Patriots 2014 First-Quarter Review

This one’s difficult to write. I began it before halftime. New England sits at 2-2, sandwiching two wins (at Minnesota and vs. Oakland) between a grim season-opener at Miami and a listless effort in Kansas City. (And after they got one-room-schoolhouse disciplined by the Chiefs, the term “listless effort” drips with kindness compared to most descriptions we could think of....

MNF, Week 4: Patriots vs. Chiefs

These are not your father's Patriots. Mostly because they sucked more back then. But here in the 21st century, we are used to the Greatriots. Not so much anymore. More like the Mediocriots, amiright? Tom Brady, the Uggs Overlord himself, is ranked 30th in the league with just 5.54 yards per attempt, and has just completed 1 of his 13 attempts of 21 yards or longer downfield...

Should the New England Patriots Release Danny Amendola

#453661638 / gettyimages.com The New England Patriots signed receiver Danny Amendola to a five year/$28 million deal during free agency in 2013 just days after veteran receiver Wes Welker signed to the Denver Broncos. The reason Amendola was brought to New England was to replace the void left by Wes Welker and he still has yet to do that. Amendola has had a few good performances...

Patriots Film Review: Dont’a Hightower Playing At All-Pro Level

Dont’a Hightower wanted to have more fun in 2014, and so far it looks like he’s getting his wish. The New England Patriots starting linebacker has taken a major leap in 2014, and he’s been the team’s best defensive player through three games. Hightower has been spectacular as a pass rusher, in coverage and with stout run defense. He had another stellar game on Sunday against...

The Patriots Have Some Really Bad Penalties

The Patriots have been flagged for 30 penalties in three games, good for 30th place in the league with respect to overall team discipline. New England is averaging a league worst 107.3 penalty yards per game. Read that again. The Patriots are being flagged for more than a football field every week. Some penalties can't be avoided, but there are some boneheaded plays that need...

Top five takeaways from the New England Patriots win over the Raiders

This was a tough game to watch. The simple fact that it took a Vince Wilfork red-zone interception to seal the victory for the Pats proves just how odd of a game this was. Some may want to give praise to the Raiders, but this is all about the Patriots and how poorly they played, especially on offense. Here are the five biggest takeaways from Sunday’s game: The trade for TE Tim...

Danny Amendola keeps focus

Danny Amendola arrived with a rather daunting mission attached to the five-year, $28.5 million free agent deal he signed with the Patriots last year. He was supposed to make everyone forget about losing Wes Welker. No one said the job was going to be easy. Some may have even classified it as impossible. But that doesn’t get him off the hook. A little more than a year after putting...

Danny Amendola suffers from a low snap count

See what I did with the title? It seems like my dear friend Danny Amendola did not get to see the field very often during the Patriots week 2 victory against the Vikings. According to an article done by our beloved writer from ESPN, Mike Reiss, Amendola was on the field for 19 out of 67 snaps. In week 1, Amendola's snap count was 61 out of 87. His decrease in snaps is one...

Stunned: Welker Out, Amendola In

Heading into the off-season, we all knew that there was a chance Wes Welker had played his last game as a Patriot.  We also knew that if Wes signed with another team, the Pats had the inside track on replacing him with St. Louis' Danny Amendola.  Still, you can color me stunned at the events that played out today.  The rumored deal that the Patriots had offered was supposedly...

Watch: Danny Amendola Makes Amazing Acrobatic Catch

New England Patriots receiver Danny Amendola has looked impressive throughout the offseason as he looks to shake off a disappointing injury-plagued 2013 campaign in his first season in Foxborough. But the 2007 undrafted product out of Texas Tech has just taken things to another level at practice with an incredible circus catch—where he reels in a pass that he punts to himself while...

WATCH: New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola With the Juggling Catch While Holding Four Footballs

When the New England Patriots signed Danny Amendola prior to last season they hoped that he would replace the production lost when Wes Welker opted to go to Denver. He didn't exactly do it, but lucky for the Patriots someone else did--but after a season in the system there is no reason to believe he can't do it this season.After seeing him make a catch like this--albeit a...
