INDIANAPOLIS -- The Patriots have to get younger at wider receiver. They haven’t been able to develop a consistent young presence at the position in a decade. So what does New England do this offseason?

INDIANAPOLIS -- When it comes to defending the no-huddle offense, the Giants have tried just about anything, including some well-timed injuries that left them looking like Al Czervik.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Near the start of the 2011 season, Patriots defensive line coach Pepper Johnson made a simple analogy when talking about the New England defensive line, saying “it’s kind of hard teaching some old dogs new tricks.”
