It’s the end of tax season. Here are the write-offs every NFL team needs to make before it is to late.

If you didn’t know any better, you’d believe Terrell Suggs doesn’t care for the Patriots. Suggs has called the Patriots “arrogant pricks” in the past and on Thursday, he told Boston radio station WEEI the Patriots don’t “respect anybody,” and he “guarantees the other 31 teams hate the New England Patriots.” All 31 teams Terrell? Hyperbole much? But when you think about it, Suggs does have a point. So with the help of the intrepid Alex Gelhar and Adam Rank, we look for 31 reasons why every team hates the New England Patriots. ————————————————————————————————————————————– AFC: ————————————————————————————————————————————– 1. Buffalo Bills ————————————————————————————————————————————– The Patriots had a surplus of quarterbacks after the 2001 season, so, of course, the Bills ended up with Drew Bledsoe and not […]

Tom Brady restructured his contract to help out the Patriots salary cap situation. But he worked in a few special requests to sweeten his side of the deal…

This was the kind of week where why wouldn’t Chris Johnson have his best game of the season against the Houston Texans. And congratulations to the 65 percent of you who still started Johnson this week, kudos to you.

Often, we get so caught up in this fantasy football world we live in that it’s easy to overlook that there’s so much more reality than fantasy. Last year, for instance, Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson held out, then struggled the entire season to hit his stride. Though he ended up with 1,047 yards and 4.0 yards per carry, he wasn’t himself. And he certainly wasn’t the standout back so many had counted on for their leagues. While he had four 100-yard games, he also had seven games in which he averaged fewer than 3.0 yards per rush. It’s easy to overlook how miserable all this made CJ, who has looked completely different this preseason. It’s why he couldn’t conceal […]

An article in my old paper, the Boston Herald, got me thinking… I wonder if the New England Patriots are on their way to being a defensive team again. Or, at least, a balanced team. No, seriously, I’m not crazy. So last year, the Patriots defense was bad. No shocker there. They finished 31st in yards allowed, a stat we monitored closely in 2011. But they also did other things that good defenses do — took the ball away (tied for third), made stops in the red zone, and didn’t allow a lot of points (17 per game in the playoffs). Heading into 2012, I think they could be in the top half of the league. I bring this up […]

Rex Ryan certainly wasn’t going to predict he’d win any awards for his performance in “That’s My Boy,” which hits theaters on June 15. But co-star Adam Sandler couldn’t heap enough superlatives on Ryan’s acting during a conference call with reporters on Wednesday afternoon.
Posted: Wednesday, June 13th, 2012 | Ian Rapoport Tags: Patriots, Bill Belichick, Jake Ballard, Patriots
Well, that was awkward yesterday, wasn’t it? The Giants had cut injured TE Jake Ballard, who tore his ACL during the Super Bowl. Their goal was to put him on Injured Reserve after he cleared waivers, then have him for 2013. Yeah… that didn’t happen. As you know, wily Bill Belichick claimed Ballard, and now he’s a member of the Patriots. He won’t play this year, likely, but he’ll be around for 2013. It’s easy to see why there is interest. The well-schooled Ballard had four catches for 67 yards and a TD against the Pats during the regular season, tearing them up. But it’s the whole issue of claiming a guy another team wants to put on IR that […]

The debate over Patriots WR Wes Welker’s future is raging. He signed his franchise tender, but then spoke out about how poorly the negotiations are going. Few don’t believe Welker is worth big money for his production now. But it’s when you get a little bit into the future when it gets dicey. Welker is, after all, 31 years old, and he has taken a lot of hits. He plays fearlessly over the middle, which may be why he’s been beat up. In discussing a possible extension, it may be instructive to look into the past. That’s what I did, examining the last two slot receivers who have starred for coach Bill Belichick — Wayne Chrebet and Troy Brown. Are […]

What would you do if you were the Browns GM? If NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock had the job, he’d strongly consider trading up from No. 4 to No. 2 in the draft to nab Baylor QB Robert Griffin III.

As expected, New England’s coach has ditched the infamous red hoodie he wore in Super Bowl XLII for a gray one.

The inaugural NFL Honors gala offered a generous dose of memorable moments. The Tim Tebow/Katy Perry encounter is in the books, but there were plenty of gems from Saturday night’s NFL/Hollywood mashup:

Rob Gronkowski‘s sprained left ankle continues to be the most talked about body part on the Patriots.
