Rob Gronkowski moved around well at Play 60 event

According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (ACL) was moving well during an NFL Play 60 event on Wednesday. Gronkowski wasn’t limping, and he wasn’t wearing a bulky brace under his jeans. He threw passes to children of military families for a couple hours and was his typical, jovial self. Of course Gronk wasn’t running, but this is certainly...

Matthew Slater humbled by Robert Kraft's comments

One of the more interesting things to happen during the offseason (in an offseason that had more than enough interesting things happen) actually occurred at the Super Bowl when Robert Kraft was speaking with reporters.

New England Patriots: Finding trade partners for the Draft

The Patriots shouldn’t trade up in this draft. They shouldn’t even stay put at 29. They should trade down. Admittedly, this is a wildly un-sexy opinion. This year we have a pretty exciting draft. The consensus No. 1 prospect might go anywhere from 1 to 7, as it seems every day there are new stories either valorizing his talent or bemoaning his lack of motor/consistency. There...

Matthew Slater says the Patriots asked for a lot out of Kenbrell Tompkins, Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce

The Patriots youth movement at wide receiver began with a bang in 2013. There was no easing the class of 2013 into the grind of the NFL regular season. Instead, due to a depleted tight end position due to a recovering Rob Gronkowski and an incarcerated Aaron Hernandez, the Patriots were forced into the unenviable position of having Tom Brady throw to guys who were learning on the...

Power Rankings: New England Patriots have a top-10 offense in the NFL

The old adage is that “defense wins championships.” But more and more, that sounds like a cliché being echoed by a coach, analyst or fan intent on living in the past. Nowadays, offense makes the difference; at least most of the time. Looking for proof? Take a look at the teams that made the playoffs last season. The 12 teams who made the postseason all finished in the top-18...

Tom Brady grins as he sprays water from a hose he’s holding by his crotch (photo)

It’s difficult to ascertain if Tom Brady was deliberately holding a hose right near his crotch and spraying water out of it in a bid to make some innuendo-loaded phallic humor, but the sophomoric grin on the New England Patriots quarterback’s face arguably helps lead a person to make that conclusion. You can almost imagine […] The post Tom Brady grins as he sprays water from...
