    Cooks yards per reception

    The book on Cooks has not changed at all since he's entered the league. Tremendous speed, good hands, excellent ability to track the ball in flight, in addition to limited size and physicality. His lack of size shows up the most in jump ball situations along with being able to beat press...

    Tomlin already thinking about the Pats

    Regarding your first point, what is really helping their defense is the below average offenses and quarterbacks that they've had to face. Many defenses would look great against non-NFL-ready rookies like DeShone Kizer, washed up and overpaid veterans like Joe Flacco, soon to be journeymen like...

    Tomlin already thinking about the Pats

    The real reason for Pittsburgh's lack of man coverage is because they don't have the cornerbacks good enough to run it with proficiency. Artie Burns is probably the most overrated player on their defense and I can't for the life of me fathom exactly why anyone thinks he's an elite player. His...

    Post Game Thread Dolphins @ Pats

    No. The earliest the Patriots can clinch the AFC East now is week 14 because of Buffalo's win over the Chiefs. Had the Bills lost to Kansas City, then next week's game against them would have been a division clinching opportunity.

    **Official New England @ Denver Broncos Post-Game Thread**

    The Patriots' dominance on special teams, especially on the Lewis kick return touchdown, was not by accident. Coming into this game Denver was atrociously bad on kick return coverage. Despite being one of the better teams in terms of forcing touchbacks, the Broncos are the worst at stopping...

    welcome Johnson Bademosi

    Face-guarding is not illegal, period. As was the case in the Hobbs situation - no contact was initiated and the flag was still thrown wrongly anyway. The league flat-out said afterward that the refs got it wrong, which made it even worse for the Patriots because that was one of the catalysts to...

    welcome Johnson Bademosi

    It was the 2006 AFCCG that @neali is referring to in which Ellis Hobbs was erroneously called for it. Nevertheless, the league had to admit then that face-guarding is not a penalty, and it still isn't, hence why Bademosi wasn't called for it last night.

    Pats trade Jacoby Brissett to the Colts for Phillip Dorsett

    Not to rain on your bad trades parade, but Greene was placed on I.R with an Achilles' injury and Fowler not only sucks, but is an undisciplined immature headcase who can't stay out of trouble. Fowler is definitely not Patriots material.

    Pats trade Jacoby Brissett to the Colts for Phillip Dorsett

    I saw some asking about Tavon Austin, Dorsett is more or less a clone of him at a fraction of the cost. With Amendola, Edelman, and even Hogan to a lesser extent, getting up there in age the Patriots needed to replenish the WR cupboard either way. Getting Mitchell, Cooks and Dorsett does this...

    Roster cutdowns - PATRIOTS

    He sucked in that system despite his athleticism. Speed isn't the only component to being a successful receiver in that style of system.

    Roster cutdowns - PATRIOTS

    I'm not at all surprised by Brissett's trade. I felt his days were short here. His drafting mainly seemed at the time to be an insurance for Garoppolo due to Brady's suspension. And lo and behold he ended up having to make starts last season for that very same reason. However, he seemed to not...

    Future's not looking good for ESPN

    In trying to find even a microscopic amount of sympathy, the only reaction I can come up with is this:

    OBJ catch - what am I even looking at?

    Probably because in that format his teammate, Klay, is just as good. Steph likely would've lost to Thompson in 2015 if he didn't make an absurd 13 in a row. The 3-point contest is more or less akin to an in-game catch-and-shoot scenario, which is more Thompson's style than Curry's. Curry is...

    High and Branch start TC on PUP

    No. Players on PUP still count toward the 90-man roster limit.
