Three running backs the New England Patriots should consider in free agency

After seeing how easily LeSean McCoy was shipped out of Philadelphia, it’s blatantly clear how invaluable running backs have become. Apparently, even the best – or, at least, one of the best – running backs in the NFL, while still in his prime, is only worth a third-year linebacker coming off an ACL injury. That said, the position seems to have become so devalued that it...

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady surprises in latest QB Rankings

Quarterback remains the most-important position in all of sports, but that doesn’t mean it’s not evolving. In fact, the past 10 years have seen a drastic shift in the way success is defined behind center. No longer are quarterbacks asked to simply stand in the pocket and deliver passes to receiver. More and more, they are becoming dynamic, two-way threats, players who can torment...

New England Patriots languish in logo power rankings

It’s the symbol that represents a city and a franchise; it’s the mark that fans wear with pride, showing their allegiance to their favorite team. That’s what makes a logo important. And while every NFL team’s signature is recognizable, not all of them are created equal. Some are classic and iconic. Others are modern and cool. But a few are downright putrid, bastions from...

Did the New England Patriots screw themselves with their franchise tag?

The Patriots may have messed up – big time. Most were expecting that the franchise tag was going to be used on Devin McCourty, if it was going to be used on anybody; instead, they used it on Stephen Goskowski, the kicker. Now, the former All-Pro safety is set to hit free agency, where anything can happen. “I really didn’t know,” McCourty told ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Monday...

New England Patriots secondary potentially in disarray

The New England Patriots for the third time in the Bill Belichick era used their franchise tag on a kicker.

BREAKING: New England Patriots use their franchise tag on Stephen Gostkowski

Most people had guessed that if the Patriots were going to use their franchise tag, they’d use it on safety Devin McCourty, but, apparently, they didn’t feel the same way. On Monday, the Patriots used their franchise tag on kicker Stephen Gostkowski, which will pay him $4.1 million next season. This could be an indication that the Patriots feel comfortable that they can get a...

Do the New England Patriots have to make interior lineman a priority in the NFL Draft?

Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center. While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...

3 wide receivers the New England Patriots should consider in free agency

In the next few years, the hardest thing for Patriots fans will be excepting Tom Brady’s mortality. Yes, he’s still playing at an elite level, winning Super Bowls and being generally awesome, but, sooner than later, he’s going to need more help from those around him in order to succeed. Last year, New England’s wide receiving corps played remarkably well, but that’s much...

Should the New England Patriots consider a d-lineman in free agency?

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

Do the New England Patriots need an offensive lineman in free agency?

It’s a tough position to evaluate. There aren’t a lot of stats to help with the cause. Styles of play can sometimes skew opinions. And the difference between a win and a loss on any given play isn’t always black and white. But what is clear is that it’s a vital position. Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...
