What To Expect From The New England Patriots' Defense in 2014

The 2007 New England Patriots... the 2013 Denver Broncos... lots of yards, lots of points... no trophy to show for it.New England fans well remember losses to the New York Giants, twice, primarily at the hands of their tough defense. They also well remember the likes of Ty Law, Lawyer Milloy, and Willie McGinest. These are...

If Ty Law has one regret, it's not playing his entire career in New England

Ty Law was recently selected to be a nominee for the Patriots Hall of Fame. While he isn't in yet, one has to figure that Law is going to get in eventually. Ty was a member of three Super Bowl championship teams and he earned a reputation for being one of the best shutdown corners in the game during his prime. To even be nominated is an honor, one which left Law speechless...

Ty Law: Aqib Talib Is Great, But Darrelle Revis ‘Is A Special Talent’

Wednesday was supposed to be about Ty Law, and how he was named a finalist for the New England Patriots Hall of Fame, but the former Patriots cornerback was asked three questions during his conference call with the media about another defensive back from Aliquippa, Penn. Law has known Darrelle Revis since the newly signed Patriots cornerback was playing Pop Warner youth football...

Former New England Patriots on the Pats policy of player expendability

If there was a song that New England Patriots management could sing to it’s players it’s….. “I could have another you in a minute. Matter fact he’ll be here in a minute, baby.  You must not know ’bout me. You must not know ’bout me. I can have another you by tomorrow. So don’t you ever for a second get to thinking you’re irreplaceable.” Wes Welker knows that...

Secondary is backbone for Pats defense

Over the years the best Patriots teams have had a stellar defense that is very strong up front, tough in the middle and agile and fearsome in the back. When the Patriots won their first super bowl in 2001, the Patriots had guys like Ty Law and Lawyer Milloy then came Asante Samuel and Rodney Harrison. This season, the Patriots have a good mix of toughness as well as speed. Starting...

Why Lovie Smith Would Be A Smart Hire As Defensive Coordinator for The Patriots

    Ever since the departure of defensive playmakers like Rodney Harrison, Tedy Bruschi, Junior Seau, and Ty Law among others, the Patriots have struggled defensively over the years.  Although these player departures have a lot to do with these defensive woes, the team hasn't exactly had the cream of the crop to work with as far as defensive minds go.  In the...

Jets History: 2005 Season

After the Jets’ 2004 season ended in the Divisional Playoffs with a heartbreaking 20-17 loss at Pittsburgh, the franchise made numerous changes in hope of getting over the hump in 2005.  Two of the changes made by the Jets had roots in the Pittsburgh game. Kicker Doug Brien, who had missed two field goals late in the game, was released, and the Jets selected Ohio State kicker...

Why New England Patriots Are a Lock To Reach AFC Championship

There are so many things pointing to a season of great success for the Patriots this year; it may be hard for me to recall them all as I type this article.I could start with the fact that the Patriots did not lose one starter on defense, and the only losses of note on offense has been at wid receiver, where the Patriots have more than tried to compensate.After the Patriots went to...

Wes Welker, Ty Law, Adam Vinatieri Among Top 10 Patriots Let Go by Bill Belichick (Photos)

At this point, “Patriot for life” is just about an oxymoron. While Tom Brady is all but assured that he won’t be run out of Foxboro before he wants to go, few other Patriots can count on being around a second longer than the team considers them useful. Wes Welker found that out the hard way this week. While Patriots owner Robert Kraft had long said he wanted to make Welker...

Philadelphia Eagles Biggest Draft Day Regret In Franchise History

The worst draft pick in Eagles franchise history is unfortunately littered with a number of respectable candidates. For my tastes however, I would choose defensive end Mike Mamula, as many of the other woeful candidates were before my time. That does not mean that Mike Mamula is not a worthy candidate however.Mike Mamula's name happens to be synonymous with the "workout...

Wes Welker, Patriots Need to Make Deal Before Free Agency, Move Beyond Distractions of Money or Pride

Danny Amendola is no Wes Welker. The Patriots should have learned this with Deion Branch, with Ty Law, with all the veteran, Patriot Way talent that has left for more money and been replaced by shadows of players. But it is 2013, and rent-a-Welker’s time in New England appears to be ending quickly because — well, because Amendola is younger, and cheaper, and doesn’t have a...

Are the Patriots Cheap With Cornerbacks?

Is it just me or is the Aqib Talib situation being handled eerily similar to when Asante Samuel was let go.

When it comes to players like Talib and Samuel and even Ty Law way back when they just simply didn’t want to pay those players even though they were...

So I have broken this task into two parts: Early Rushmore and Modern Rushmore. The latter period starts with the purchase of the team by Robert Kraft.Even broadening this project to eight Patriot...

If you look at Patriots headlines today, it is impossible not to laugh. Some of my favorite ones include “Character Flaws in These Patriots.” Basically, after a 3-3 start, the general consensus is that Camelot has crumbled. The dynasty is dead. Type in any other hyperbolic “End of Days” phrase coupled with “Patriots” in Google and you’ll probably found it. Maybe it...
