GIF: Belichick Expressing His Displeasure Following Browner Penalty

Bill Belichick wasn’t too pleased following the penalty on Brandon Browner on Sunday night, and if you’re good at lip reading you’ll see he appears to say, “He hit him in the f*****g shoulder”

See below: (H/T: Reddit.com/Patriots)

If you missed the play, here’s another look at it:

Patriots Julian Edelman Has High Praise For Jamie Collins

Think this isn’t a close-knit team? Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman posted this on his Instagram account on Monday afternoon, paying homage to teammate Jamie Collins, who has had a terrific season and Edelman called him “The most athletic man I’ve ever seen.”

Former Patriots RB Blount Walks off Field Before Game Ends, Teammates Want Him Released

After a productive season in his first year with the Patriots, free agent running back LeGarrette Blount opted to move on and pursue another opportunity in Pittsburgh where he signed a two-year deal with the Steelers back in March.

It turns out, the grass doesn’t appear to be greener for him there.

According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Blount walked off the field before the game was over at the end of their Monday night win over Tennessee, reportedly upset that he had not received any carries throughout the night.

Bouchette reports that this is apparently not the first time that Blount has been a problem for the Steelers. A few weeks ago, Blount reportedly went on a Pittsburgh radio station and complained about his lack of offensive snaps and hasn’t seemed happy with his role as a backup to Le’Veon Bell, although Bell has been the more productive of the two this season, averaging 4.9 yards per carry while rushing the football 195 times for 951 yards and two touchdowns. Blount, meanwhile, has 65 carries for 266 yards on the season along with two touchdowns of his own.

To make matters worse, it sounds like Blount has lost the support of a lot of his teammates. According to Bouchette, several players have been pushing for the Steelers to release the beleaguered running back because of his attitude. The Steelers are on a bye this week, so it will be interesting to see if anything transpires from that standpoint.

The former Patriots running back will likely be remembered for his performance in the team’s playoff victory over Indianapolis, where he rushed 24 times for 166 yards and four touchdowns, marking the most rushing touchdowns in Patriots’ history (regular and postseason) and the second most in a playoff game in NFL history.

Jonas Gray obviously matched that 4-touchdown performance Sunday night against, oddly enough, the Colts.

UPDATE: Blount has indeed been released by the Steelers, and is now a free agent.

Jets QB Geno Smith Takes Out Patriots Security Worker But Helps Them Back Up

You might think being a security worker and being down at field level might be a fun job, but the only problem is you’re not able to see what’s going on in the game and sometimes that can be an employment hazard.

Case in point, this worker from Thursday night’s game between the Patriots and Jets, who took a shot from Geno Smith on a rush by the Jets quarterback that sent the worker to the ground.

However, Geno’s a nice guy, he helped them back to their feet after the play.

Patriots Take “Ice Bucket Challenge”

Bill Belichick said during his radio interview Monday on WEEI after learning about Giants president, John Mara’s “Ice Bucket Challenge” to Belichick and Robert Kraft that he had something planned to help support ALS, and on Tuesday we learned what that was.

In true Patriots’ fashion the group did the challenge as a team, and you can see the video posted by the team below:

Patriots TE Gronkowski Shaves Head For Cancer Awareness

Here’s a video of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who had his head shaved on Sunday to raise awareness of pediatric cancer at The Kid’s Cancer Buzz-Off at Gillette Stadium. Accoeding to the Boston Herald Gronkowski, teammate Kenbrell Thompkins, and former Patriot Jermaine Wiggins were among players who got their heads shaved, and then helped shave some of the kids’ heads at the event.

Take a look:

Julian Edelman Sits Down with Chandler Jones on ‘Burgertyme’

In this video Patriots receiver Julian Edelman sits down with teammate Chandler Jones to discuss life, football and burgers. During the interview he acts like he’s talking to Jones’ brother, Jon ‘Bones’ Jones, who is a UFC fighter despite the fact the two rode to the set together.

It was a little silly, although Edelman’s “theme” music at the beginning of it was somewhat funny. Not sure what the point of the skit was, but you can check it out above.

Julian Edelman Sporting a Shirtless Picture of Rob Gronkowski

As we know, this is a pretty tight-knit group when it comes to many of the players on the Patriots roster. However, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman took it to a whole new level when he was spotted wearing a t-shirt which had a shirtless photo of teammate Rob Gronkowski.

In the photo, which was Tweeted from the receiver’s Twitter account, he told Gronkowski it was “#goslingtyme”.

Here’s a look at that photo:

The reference to actor Ryan Gosling comes after the actor recently stepped out in a shirt with a large photograph of Macaulay Culkin, and Culkin responded by creating a top with a photograph of Gosling wearing his image.

ESPN shows the similarity below:

Tom Brady Showing Off a New – and Interesting – Haircut

There were plenty of fans in years past who talked quite a bit about Tom Brady’s previous long-haired look that he previously wore, but here’s the latest look at a photo of Brady and wife Gisele that should raise a few eyebrows:

When you’re a future Hall of Fame quarterback who has won double-digit games going all the way back to 2003, it’s safe to say he can wear his hair however he likes.
