The big news yesterday was that the Patriots rewarded TE Rob Gronkowski with a six-year, $54-million contract extension. It’s a massive reward for the player who set the yardage record and touchdown record at that position last year. Today, the player who is currently the game’s highest paid tight end spoke about that development, offering a serious appreciation for Gronk’s prowess. Representing the FRAM Ready to Role program, Cowboys TE Jason Witten appeared a local Walmart to lead a hands on, under-the-hood, car care skills training deal with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas teens. Before it all happened, I asked Witten for his reaction to Gronk’s new riches. “I think obviously the bar just continues to get raised […]
The Patriots opened up their pocketbook for star tight end Rob Gronkowski today, inking him to a six-year, $54-million extension. It could turn out to be a good deal for both sides. But with one of the game’s best tight ends locked up… what about the other? It’s time for the Saints to lock up Jimmy Graham in similar fashion. The two will always be linked. And because Graham doesn’t have Gronkowski’s injury concerns, his contract could eclipse Gronk’s. Considering Gronk did that to Graham’s single-season yardage record last year, it’s only fair. As of now, set to make just $540,000 and $570,000 over the next two years, Graham is badly underpaid. Not that Graham would say so. He’s too […]
The summer is usually a slow time in this business. Teams wrap up their mini-camps on June 14, then go off into hibernation until preseason training camp in late July. That’s a decent chunk of time to not do much at all. Sure, there is golf to play (and I need to find a place in Dallas). And there are tans to work on. But what else? Well, I just found something. And it’s awesomely ridiculous. Fox has a new dating show (as we told you about here), which usually is a guarantee of something I won’t be watching. I mean, unless they bring back Elimidate, I’m out. And this show, which features celebrities hearing pitches from non-celebrities who want […]

To the victory goes the spoils. Winning a Super Bowl means trips to the White House, Disneyland and other trips behind the velvet ropes. For Victor Cruz and Mario Manningham, it meant a trip to the Grammy’s as presenters. And as you would expect, Cruz was coerced by “NCIS” actress Pauley Perrette into doing the salsa.

With Deion Branch and Wes Welker set to become free agents and a disappointing Chad Ochocinco on the roster, the Patriots have some serious choices to make about the WR spot for 2012.
Tom Brady‘s first interception of Super Bowl XLVI came on a memorable play.
Patriots fans should be very encouraged by the fact that their team scored right before the end of the first half. Historically, in a close game, when a team scores right before the end of the first half they win a high percentage of the time.
Tom Brady and the Patriots grabbed a 10-9 lead entering halftime with a 96-yard march that tied the record for longest drive in Super Bowl history.
As the Giants and Patriots go through their on-field warm-ups for Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium, here are my pregame observations.
