Patriots Game Day Live released for the iPhone

The New England Patriots and YinzCam Inc have released an exclusive game day app for the iPhone/iPodTouch and Droid. The app is available within the WiFi area of the Fidelity Investments Clubhouse at Gillette Stadium and is for premium seating members only.

Some of the features are:

  • Replay Channel
  • NFL Redzone
  • 4 Different Camera Angles for the game live
  • Real-time States

Personally, I’m a bit disappointed that this is only available for premium seating members. It would be nice to see the Patriots support some of the fans that are out of state (scvngr wasn’t much help) or that don’t have the premium seating. With the costs of being a fan going up too, a little support for the little guy would be much appreciated (just my 2 cents).

Patriots cut Tyrone McKenzie and sign others to practice squad

The Patriots cut 2rd-year linebacker Tyrone McKenzie today. McKenzie was a 3rd round pick from 2009 that was injured with a torn ACL his rookie season. This preseason McKenzie didn’t make a great impression and looked like a special teamer. I’m surprised though that he was let go.

In other news, the Patriots signed wide receiver Darnell Jenkins, linebacker Shawn Crable, safety Sergio Brown, and center Rich Ohrnberger to the practice squad (Crable being the most notable back with the Patriots).

Patriots cut Damione Lewis and others

The Patriots cut defensive lineman Damione Lewis and tight ends Rob Meyer and Carson Butler. Meyer and Butler were presumably kicked out by Gronk and Hernandez, and Lewis was presumably cut for numbers reasons.

There is a chance the Patriots bring Lewis back though. A common thing teams do is release a veteran and then sign him after the first game so they don’t have to guarantee a full season’s salary. That and Bill Belichick was quoted saying “I think he can help us this year” just about 3 weeks ago.

Thanks to Mike Reiss for the quote

Update: The Patriots also waived offensive lineman Eric Ghiaciuc
