A 20 person committee votes on the finalists, and then fans have the opportunity to vote online until May 15th by clicking here. The previous three selections were Tedy Bruschi, Troy Brown...

One fan’s tribute to Ralph Wilson

Ralph Wilson passed away yesterday at the age of 95. Ralph is the reason why we have football in Western New York. It was Ralph who risked $25,000 and joined the fool’s club of AFL owners, and put a team in the old Rock Pile Stadium at the corner of Best St and Masten Ave. However, before I go any further I must say that with Ralph as our owner there have been some real boneheaded...

Tom Brady’s Debut, SpyGate Among Best Moments In Patriots-Jets Rivalry (Photos)

The rivalry between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets first stemmed from the common desire to clinch the top spot in the AFC East, but the modern day teams duel over much more than just a divisional title. Jets linebacker Mo Lewis changed the game forever in 2001 when he slammed Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe to the ground, prompting the Pats to call up rookie Tom...

Jonathan Kraft: Belichick Wanted Brady in the 5th Round

At the MIT Sloan Analytics Conference, Patriots president Jonathan Kraft recalled the story of how the Patriots selected Tom Brady. The Patriots had recently signed Drew Bledsoe to a large contract and Robert Kraft and Jonathan Kraft were against taking a quarterback as they wanted to build a contender around Bledsoe.

Revenge of Darth Hoodie

No one truly knows the mind of the ice cold but brilliant Bill Belichick. He certainly isn’t known as the most loveable coach, and he is famous for holding grudges. Drew Bledsoe and Wes Welker are just a few of the players that apparently earned the dislike of their moody head coach, and each of them ended up departing from the team. Belichick is easily compared to the Sith Lord...

Best quarterback ever drafted by the Patriots not named Tom Brady

In a way, this is the easiest historical draft pick of the New England Patriots to select as the “best” for the position. Tom Brady was a sixth round draft pick—#199 overall—taking the job from a former number one overall pick and becoming the only quarterback in franchise history to win one, let alone three, Super Bowl championships. In addition to that, he set NFL single...

Peyton Manning and Tom Brady broke into the NFL at around the same time, Peyton 2 years earlier than Tom.  Both in drastically different circumstances as Peyton, the Tennessee Volunteer, was the highly coveted and projected best quarterback to come out of the NFL draft since John Elway.  Brady on the other hand split time at Michigan and barely made the cut as the Patriots 6th...

Terribly Awesome Football Card: Drew Bledsoe

Opinion: The New England Patriots are following blueprint for success

Jim Rogash/Getty Images I think it’s safe to say that the New England Patriots are having a below-average season this year. With Tom Brady at the helm, it is a common occurrence to see New England win games by 30-plus points. Right from the get-go however, it was clear that was not going to be the case. Grinding out 13-10 and 24-21 wins against the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets...

This was in spite of the fact that the aging quarterback had taken more hits than a puff-puff-pass circle.By the time darkness fell...
