Jets Fan Reacts To Loss Not With Anger, But Complete Emotional Shutdown

This guy's probably reacted to Jets losses with fury and/or screaming in the past, but maybe he's just sick of it, it being everything. Last night, as the Jets' field goal attempt for the win failed, our Jets fan wasn't able to do anything but promptly walk into the bathroom so he could pretend he was in a world in… » 10/17/14 2:13pm Friday 2:13pm

No, The Refs Didn't Illegally Help The Patriots Line Up Last Night

This is a silly thing, but it's gotten enough traction on Twitter, and enough tipsters have emailed us Zapruder breakdowns of it that we may as well address it. No, the ref nudging a New England linebacker out of the infraction zone on the Patriots' game-winning field goal block wasn't enacting a league bias toward… » 10/17/14 10:39am Friday 10:39am

Gronk On Patriots' Offensive Line: They "Should Get Laid Tonight"

Gigantic talking muscle Rob Gronkowski spoke with Tony Siragusa after the Patriots' win over the Bills, and he wanted everyone watching to know that the Patriots' offensive line played like sexy, sexy men today. They did give Tom Brady enough time to find his receivers, while allowing only two sacks. » 10/12/14 6:42pm 10/12/14 6:42pm

Man With Patriots Helmet Tattoo Arrested On Synthetic Weed Charges

You may remember Victor Thompson, the man with a Patriots helmet tattooed on his head, from back in 2012. I interviewed him a few days before the Patriots played the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, since he lived roughly 20 minutes from me in New Hampshire. Thompson was in jail at the time for willful concealment, and it… » 10/10/14 11:47am 10/10/14 11:47am

Report: Aaron Dobson Benched After He "Mouthed Off" To Josh McDaniels

The fact that second-year WR Aaron Dobson has suited up just once this season is extra-weird in light of the Patriots being woefully short on receivers. A Boston Globe report today may answer that question; it says Dobson has been benched the last two weeks because he's run afoul of offensive coordinator Josh… » 10/02/14 9:22am 10/02/14 9:22am

Bill Belichick Really Just Wants To Talk About Cincinnati

Bill Belichick was in excellent press-conference form two days after the Chiefs demolished the Patriots. Reporters kept asking him about the Patriots' roster, Tom Brady's age, and concerns for the team's current state. Belichick wasn't interesting in talking about anything else but Sunday night's game against… » 10/01/14 2:53pm 10/01/14 2:53pm

Aaron Hernandez's Lawyers Want His Trial Moved From "Biased" Boston Area

Aaron Hernandez appeared in a Bristol County court yesterday, as his lawyers filed a motion requesting that one of his murder trials be moved "outside the boundaries of the Boston media market." Their reasoning includes a poll finding that most people in Bristol County already think he's guilty. » 10/01/14 1:14pm 10/01/14 1:14pm

Don't Ask Bill Belichick If It's Time To Think About His Quarterbacks

The Patriots were bad, bad, bad last night, getting beaten soundly on both sides of the ball in a 41-14 road thumping at the hands of the Chiefs. But a good part of the attention is naturally going to settle on Tom Brady, who's been so consistently great over the course of his career that this season's very real… » 9/30/14 9:27am 9/30/14 9:27am
