WATCH: Kenny Chesney joins 'Free Tom Brady' movement

It’s tough to attend any New England event nowadays and not hear at least a few “Free Tom Brady” chants. Kenny Chesney is in Foxboro this weekend to headline the annual New England Country Music Festival — or “CountryFest,” as it’s commonly known. And since the two-night concert is held in the Patriots’ home stadium, it came as no surprise when Chesney proclaimed...

Did Chris Mortensen’s false reporting screw over the New England Patriots and Tom Brady?

Chris Mortensen’s tweet on January 21st about the New England Patriots’ involvement in the deflation of 11 of 12 football, during the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts, sparked outrage amongst, not only the NFL fan base, but popular culture, as well.

New England Patriots FB James Develin Suffers Broken Leg After Getting Slung Down In Tackle

The fullback is a position that many teams do not even carry anymore, but there are still some teams out there that use them (and their running backs are very grateful). They are great for throwing lead blocks for their running backs, but when they get the ball it is fun to watch them work. They are not speedy, but they are not slow either. They are, however, some big ole boys.The...

The NFL’s season kickoff isn’t going as planned, but plans don’t matter in the NFL

The gulf between the end of the previous season’s Super Bowl and the start of the new NFL season seems like an interminable one. Sure, the draft, training camp and the preseason games satiate fans’ desire, but only briefly. We want the real thing, and the NFL knows this. That’s why the yearly season opener has been pushed up to Thursday nights in recent years and the league...

Chris Mortensen denies being played by NFL source about Deflategate, says Krafts apologized to him

Chris Mortensen denies that he was played by an NFL source regarding Deflategate, even though his initial report — which later proved to be false — helped kick the scandal into high gear and made the Patriots look a lot worse than the true numbers actually indicated. Mort’s original report shortly after the AFC Championship Game stated that 11 of 12 Patriots’ footballs checked...

Patriots In The Way Of Goodell Turning NFL Into WWE

ope or hate. Those are the only two reasons why anyone watches professional football. Sure, there are the perverts (like me) who watch for the grace of the athletes, the speed, the power and the sheer size combined into explosive packages that collide once every forty seconds – but the casual fan, the ones who combine to comprise 95% of the National Football League’s total revenue...

Can Reggie Wayne become the newest veteran savior in New England?

Reggie Wayne officially decided to sign a one-year contract with the New England Patriots a few days ago, and it was a move that many believe will help New England’s offense in a big way. It wasn’t a popular move for Wayne’s former fan base in Indianapolis, but the Colts were the ones that chose to move on from him in favor of Andre Johnson in the first place. New England has...

Does Jerry Rice’s aversion to talking stickum taint legacy?

So was stickum Jerry Rice’s dirty secret? Or maybe his sticky secret? The Hall of Fame wide receiver is the NFL’s all-time leader in receptions (1,549), receiving yards (22,895) and receiving touchdowns (197). Rice admitted in January that he put a little stickum on his gloves during his playing days. He was asked about it Wednesday on NBC Sports Radio, and avoided...

New England Patriots rookie defensive lineman Malcom Brown will not be able to make fans forget about Vince Wilfork, but they are going to be darn glad they have him on the roster.

Rob Gronkowski isn’t only one of the most talented tight ends in the NFL, he also has cultivated a reputation of being one of the league’s craziest characters off of it, known for his hard-partying ways and frat boy-like demeanor. Which makes some comments — surely made in jest — by the New England Patriots superstar during an interview on Boston’s WEEI on Monday morning...
