02/02/2012 - 1:33am
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.”

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.

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,

Christopher Price
01/25/2012 - 1:25am
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

Christopher Price
01/17/2012 - 1:16am
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 - 9:45pm
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

FOXBORO -- If Tuesday’s practice was any indication, the Patriots’ offensive line figures to get a sizable boost this week when it faces the Broncos in the divisional round of the postseason Saturday night at
Christopher Price
01/09/2012 - 5:52pm
For the Patriots, it’ll be all about taking advantage of positive man-to-man matchups, while the Broncos must focus on playing good complementary football and staying as physical as possible on defense.
Christopher Price
01/05/2012 - 11:53pm
FOXBORO -- There’s no way to explain how football changes when the schedule turns from the regular season to the postseason. You can try and explain it to a youngster who hasn’t gone through the process, but chances are they won’t be fully prepared until they step on the field.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO -- To be considered a truly great team in the NFL, you not only have to be physically tough, but mentally resilient as well.
Christopher Price
01/04/2012 - 1:39am
