Maybe Sean Payton and Jim Caldwell knew what they were doing.

Pro football in New England this season came to an ugly and unceremonious end on Jan. 10 at Gillette Stadium, leaving local football fans without a team to follow throughout the playoffs.

With Dean Pees gone, the focus now shifts to the two likeliest candidates to replace him as Patriots defensive coordinator: Matt Patricia and Pepper Johnson.

FOXBORO — For the Patriots, it was a sobering Monday morning. Less than 24 hours after their playoff defeat to Baltimore, a relatively muted locker room was crowded with garbage bags and moving boxes as the franchise started its offseason with talk of missed opportunities and open speculation about what comes next.

FOXBORO — When it came to the postseason, it was a walk that had seen a lot of misery.

FOXBORO — Size matters.

FOXBORO — There’s an added sense of urgency that comes with postseason football. The magnitude of every dropped pass or each missed block is magnified tenfold — instead of a loss, it could mean the end of your season. On the other hand, a fortunate bounce or perfectly executed play at the right time can make you a legend.

On the surface, Wes Welker and Julian Edelman appear to be very similar players.

Through the years in Boston sports, there have been a few select relationships that could be classified as special, in which one brings out the best in the other(s), lifting all parties to the next level: Larry Bird and Dennis Johnson.

FOXBORO — On Tuesday afternoon at Gillette Stadium, in his final press conference of the decade, Tom Brady left no doubt as to where he’ll be on Sunday.
Christopher Price
12/31/2009 - 1:50am
While so many other Patriots teams of the decade have been easily labeled by the time the playoffs roll around — offensive juggernaut, defensive powerhouse, indefatigable underdog, etc. — the 2009 team has resisted characterizations. And as a result, the ultimate legacy of this year’s team is still yet to be written.

Quarterback Tom Brady led a quartet of Patriots who were named to the AFC Pro Bowl team on Tuesday evening.

When it comes to deciding who is going to play and who will sit in Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Texans in Houston, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is well aware of the reality of the situation.

FOXBORO — The mask first appeared in the second half, and it was an indication of just what kind of day it would be at Gillette Stadium.

With two games left in the regular season and the playoffs looming just over the horizon, quarterback Tom Brady confessed Wednesday that the Patriots still are searching for an offensive identity.

Welcome back to the holiday edition of the WEEI.com mailbag. We’ve been powering through the Christmas music the last week or so in a final frantic rush to get geared up for the holiday.

Randy Moss didn’t want to leave any doubt.
Christopher Price
12/18/2009 - 2:20am
FOXBORO — How will Randy respond? In the wake of Moss' worst statistical game in his two-plus years as a Patriot, it’s a question that was asked a half-million times this past week. The wide receiver left the world wondering where his head was at after not talking Wednesday or Thursday, leaving everyone to ponder what was going on with him.

FOXBORO — It’s a rare gift the Patriots don’t expect to get again.

FOXBORO — Author Henry David Thoreau once implored his readers to, “Simplify, simplify.” Thoreau wasn’t much for football, but the New England native surely would have appreciated what the Patriots’ defense did against Carolina on Sunday.

Welcome back to the bag, and I hope everyone is having a happy and safe holiday season. This week, we’ve got lots of talk about a certain No. 81 and what happened to him on Sunday against the Panthers.
