INDIANAPOLIS -- At league events like the annual NFL scouting combine, the Patriots love operating in the shadows.

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?
Christopher Price
02/23/2012 - 11:07pm
INDIANAPOLIS -- When it came to their front seven, the Patriots showed multiple defensive looks last season, shuffling between a three-man front and a four-man front depending on personnel and opponent.
Christopher Price
02/22/2012 - 7:51pm
The combine is one of the most underrated events on the NFL calendar. A rare opportunity for the media to meet with top-flight prospects, coaches, personnel men and agents, it’s the real kickoff to an offseason that will continue with the start of free agency, league meetings and the draft.
Christopher Price
02/19/2012 - 10:35pm
Just two weeks after the Super Bowl, the NFL offseason kicks into high gear this week. Teams can start placing the franchise tag on players Monday (a process that concludes March 5), and starting Thursday, the Patriots will join the rest of the league at the annual scouting combine in Indianapolis.

02/08/2012 - 7:42pm
Despite the fact that the Patriots are only a few days removed from the Super Bowl, they already have a laundry list of things to address in the coming months. Here are 10 points of emphasis for the franchise:

02/07/2012 - 12:49am
Less than 24 hours after a final Hail Mary attempt came up short at the end of Super Bowl XLVI, the Patriots opened the offseason with a series of goodbyes at Gillette Stadium.

02/06/2012 - 5:03am
INDIANAPOLIS -- Late Sunday night, deep in the bowels of Lucas Oil Stadium, Wes Welker stared straight ahead, glassy-eyed and quiet.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Here are 46 things we’ll be keeping an eye on in Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVI between the Patriots and the Giants.
Christopher Price
02/02/2012 - 11:28pm
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.
Christopher Price
02/02/2012 - 12:33am
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.”
Christopher Price
02/01/2012 - 10:53pm
INDIANAPOLIS -- While Patriots quarterback Tom Brady attempts to win his fourth Super Bowl Sunday against the Giants at Lucas Oil Stadium, his

INDIANAPOLIS -- This game is going to come down to whether or not the fat guys in the blue jerseys can stop the fat guys in the white jerseys from getting to Tom Brady. The rest of it is all incidental.
Christopher Price
01/31/2012 - 12:33am
INDIANAPOLIS -- While Patriots coach Bill Belichick has disarmed the media for much of New England’s first two days in Indy with some one-liners and great stories about the old Giants’ coaching staff,

FOXBORO -- Over the course of the 2011 season, no Patriots’ skill position has seen more change than running back.
Christopher Price
01/26/2012 - 12:54am
A series WEEI.com has been running all year long comes to a conclusion this week, as we enlist the services of a pair of scouts -- one from the AFC and another from the NFC -- to help break down the matchups in Super Bowl XLVI.
Christopher Price
01/25/2012 - 12:25am
For the second time in five seasons, the Patriots and Giants will meet in the Super Bowl, and instead of just getting one scout to weigh in on the matchup, we enlisted two -- one from the AFC and another from the NFC -- to help break thi

FOXBORO -- In the waning moments of Sunday’s AFC championship, the Ravens were a muddled mess.
Christopher Price
01/23/2012 - 2:57am
FOXBORO -- Forget everything you thought you knew about the 2011 Patriots.
Christopher Price
01/21/2012 - 1:25pm

Christopher Price

FOXBORO -- No position on the Patriots roster has come under more fire this season than the secondary.
Christopher Price
01/18/2012 - 12:09am
It remains one of the most distinguishing aspects of the Patriots offense in 2011: the no-huddle.
Christopher Price
01/17/2012 - 12:16am
FOXBORO -- While many have already reduced this week’s AFC Championship Game between the Patriots and the Ravens to a rematch of their 2009 playoff showdown, the truth is that these two teams are far different than the ones that met that afternoon three years ago at Gillette Stadium.
Christopher Price
01/16/2012 - 8:45pm
FOXBORO -- Wide receiver Wes Welker is drawing a lot of attention for his mustache campaign this postseason, but when it comes to facial hair, linebacker Rob Ninkovich clearly has him beat.
Christopher Price
01/15/2012 - 5:11am
FOXBORO -- In a year when pro football pundits tried to search for religious symbolism in every move made (or even stat compiled) by Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, it was Patriots quarterback
