Patrick Chung To New England Patriots An Unexpected But Sound Signing

Bill Belichick still finds a way to surprise as head coach of the New England Patriots. No one saw Patrick Chung — of all the available free agents — signing with the Patriots this offseason. But on Thursday, the 2009 second-round draft pick re-signed with the team that drafted him. The transaction was met with guffaws. Chung played in an era when Patriots fans didn’t look...

Patrick Chung re-signs with Patriots

Patrick Chung is once again a member of the New England Patriots, but no one knows quite what to make of it.On the surface, it looks as if Bill Belichick is replacing one expensive safety that doesn't wrap up when "tackling" in Steve Gregory with an inexpensive safety that doesn't wrap up either - both undersized and both looking to deliver the big hit......but...

Patriots biggest draft failures in the past few years.

The Patriots have had their share of picks not working out in recent years, and it shows--mainly on defense. While some selections were good, most have been pretty weak and the player drafted often didn't contribute that much to the team and is most likely gone. So who exactly have the Patriots missed out on after drafting players who never worked out? 2008 NFL Draft: Rd...

The great Geno Smith smokescreen theory...

Careful, the white smoke you see may be your own...your own team's smokescreen, that is.

Making sense of Free Agency Frenzy in Philly...

To paraphrase our resident talent scout-emeritus, JB-Sage-Lion, "Why are so many teams over-spending on second-tier free agent players?" Wait a week or two, and the price tags would have been a lot less... but there is a level of desperation to win NOW that is pervasive among at least 30 NFL teams that are tired of losing... And the Free Agent gold rush is mighty tempting...

Potential Patriots: Defensive backs

If you’re a gambling man (or woman), it’s a safe bet that the Patriots will draft a defensive back in the first two rounds. Hell, they’ve done it in four straight drafts. Unfortunately, the results have been a mixed bag. 2008: Patriots select Colorado cornerback Terrence Wheatley with the penultimate pick of the second round. He was rated as a fifth- or sixth-round pick...
