    There'd be no scandals if others knew the rules

    Bear with me a moment and feel free to contribute to the theme It occured to me there's a common element with pretty much every Patriots scandal. Others don't know the rules. The other team's coaches don't know the rules... the players on other teams don't know the rules, the officials often...

    Must Read: NFL Lobbyists Go on Offensive - We should too

    As the players always remind us - the NFL is a business and this insight into the current lobbying being conducted by the NFL on issues ranging from pushing back on player safety and concussion responsibility and other matters related to the business of the NFL is worth a read...

    What a difference a year makes - Goodell no longer just incompetent...

    As the season starts consider your own perspective on the evolution of the NFL with the Commissioner himself polarizing the sport to unimagined levels of public and judicial attention Basically from this year to last Goodell's gone from incompetent, to national hero, to now both incompetent AND...

    2014 vs 2007 - Does a more diverse Offense give the Pats an advantage?

    I've often cautioned others not to get overly caught up in statistics, as they can blind one from the "eyeball" test of what a team's strengths and weaknesses are. In the 2007 season, as dominant as that team was, as the season went on I grew to feel more and more that the Patriots predictable...

    Former Patriot WR Donald Jones working out with (NJ) Patriots

    Donald Jones of Somerset Patriots swaps football for baseball | Tip of the hat to to Chris Price for including this mention in his article. I was always pulling for Jones and felt bad when health issues forced his retirement. Apparently he needed and got a kidney transplant...

    Props to the 12th Man!

    Maybe this should or shouldn't be it's own thread, but I think on a night like this, all those fans who braved the weather and made so much supportive noise and did their part to help support the team towards a first round bye, deserve a little love and respect from the majority of us watching...

    Ortiz said “other football players” used the Hernandez apartment

    Sorry if this has already been reported - but Curran asks the obvious question as to whether those "other football players" include Patriots players. Could Hernandez investigation turn to other Pats? | Comcast SportsNet - Nothing damning in that alone I know, but I'd rather see...

    NFL Stat - 37% of 2012 UFA rookies got jobs

    Undrafted rookies continue to have impact | ProFootballTalk Seemed to me this mention was worth further exploration. At the very least it's a good reminder that any lack of actual draft picks is not worth worrying about, as it wouldn't surprise me if Belichick does better with UFAs than the...

    If you could choose: 7-3 with Sunday's injuries? Or 6-4 with good health?

    Factor in whatever you want... AFC seeding and the potential for a bye, helped greatly by the win... Or an eye on the Division with the Jets now 4-6, which would be 2 games behind going into a Thanksgiving Day matchup had the team lost - and the potential to wind up 6-5 with the Jets 5-6 if by...

    Netflix stumble upons?

    Between work and family these days I've got little time for tv, and pretty much got rid of all but basic cable knowing that anything I want to see I can find and watch online on demand. Beyond that I round out my entertainment value with Netflix, and even then find that the numerous tv show...

    Stats suggest Belichick/Patriots the best at drafting

    This will come as a shocker to those who think that Belichick has been a failure in the draft. New England Patriots best, Cleveland Browns worst at finding All-Pros in the NFL Draft | With 15 pro bowlers obtained in the draft over the last decade and the Patriots are second...

    Should Goodell continue to require teams to release Injury reports?

    As we all know, Belichick has long been reluctant to cooperate with Goodell's requirement that he tell coaches and opposing players intent on hurting his players where to target those players to take them out of the game. We have seen him consistently play coy with injury reports and even has a...

    This made me feel a bit better - Lombardi on the Jets prospects next year

    This appeared a few days ago, but as of today it's making me feel a bit better looking forward. Belichick's offseason moves didn't work out quite as planned either - but I think they've also found some quality depth in the process - and that was enough to bring them within a few plays of...

    Florio thinks the Ravens prepared to play dirty

    Interesting comment from Florio about 1:00 in to NBC Sportstalk clip with Peter King 10 things to know for Friday night, from NBC SportsTalk | ProFootballTalk Basically Florio says that the Ravens may be prepared to accept some penalties and even fines in the course of the game if it means...

    Classy move by Ocho news: Ocho rewards fan for tolerating years of Twitter silence Of course it's part shameless self promotion but I'll give Ocho the credit he's due for flying a devoted twitter fan up from Florida to see the game... "Bundle up young Jedi" indeed!

    It's been a helluva week for the Jets!

    For those of you just catching up on NFL news (like me) from what I can tell, in the span of just a few days the Jets: lost to the Patriots are mired in third place cut one of their most prominent free agent signings - a 14 veteran who couldn't be happier to be far away from that locker...

    Darn! Gholston signs with Bears

    Vernon Gholston is a Chicago Bear | ProFootballTalk Just as well he's not clogging up a roster spot in addition to his arteries, but I, like many, did have visions of Belichick turning him around right in the Jets face!

    Will the Lockout lead to a rash of injuries in 2011?

    With a CBA hopefully near, we're hopefully soon going to witness a frenetic free agency followed quickly by pre-season games, followed quickly by games that count. Basically thanks to the impasse we're looking squeezing offseason workouts, OTAs, minicamps, training camps, and pre-season games...

    Should the Heat keep Spolestra?

    There's a good read on ESPN - it generally rips into LeBron in a big big way and won't make Kontradiction feel too warm and fuzzy But it also illustrates the thinking that Spolestra might not have what it takes to coax more out of a team of 3 big players and bunch of old guys...

    Thoughts on a Player/Coach roster spot in the new CBA

    I'm just throwing this idea out there again - the notion of a veteran player coach who would not count towards the roster and/or salary cap is an idea I've raised from time to time. While there's a long way to go in the "negotiations" between the players and owners, I've always thought giving...
