FOXBORO — It’s a rare event to see miscommunication between Tom Brady and Wes Welker.
Christopher Price

No mailbag last week — my apologies. The funky week got everything turned around, and we weren’t able to get to the e-mails. Some of them were able to hold up for an extra week, while others had to be tossed out. Won’t happen again, people: I’m locked and loaded for the rest of the regular season, which is almost (gasp) halfway over.

Even with almost half a season in the books, the 2009 Patriots are a tough team to get a handle on.
Christopher Price

Wes Welker knows he’s a rare commodity in the National Football League.
Christopher Price
10/22/2009 - 11:00pm
FOXBORO — To this point, 2009 has been a forgettable season for Adalius Thomas.
Christopher Price
10/21/2009 - 1:22pm
FOXBORO — Opportunity may be knocking for Brandon Tate and Terrence Nunn.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO — It’s been an eventful week for the Patriots linebackers.
Christopher Price
10/20/2009 - 5:19pm
FOXBORO — Patriots coach Bill Belichick officially closed the door on the Joey Galloway era in New England yesterday afternoon.
Christopher Price
10/19/2009 - 10:32pm
The Patriots made a few moves on Monday, re-upping wide receiver/special teams ace Sam Aiken and releasing outside linebacker Tully Banta-Cain.
Christopher Price
10/19/2009 - 8:21pm
Despite the fact that Adalius Thomas was a healthy scratch Sunday for the first time since his rookie season, the Patriots sound like they are counting on the outside linebacker making a contribution again sooner rather than later.
Christopher Price
10/19/2009 - 2:09am
FOXBORO — It was a 15-minute stretch of football that woke up the echoes of 2007, and allowed even the most hardened cynic to think that even after struggling at times through the first five weeks of the season, the Patriots offense might still be able to regain some of the football mojo it has lost the last

Before there was Junior Seau, there was Clay Matthews.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO — A longtime advisor to Tom Brady says the quarterback is “not in complete rhythm,” but the struggles he’s had through the first five weeks of the season are “repairable.”
Christopher Price
10/14/2009 - 7:42pm
FOXBORO — The addition of Junior Seau to the Patriots linebacking corps gives them some positional versatility they did not have before the arrival of the 40-year-old veteran.
Christopher Price
10/14/2009 - 1:43pm
FOXBORO — Buddy is back. Veteran linebacker Junior Seau — known to his teammates in the Patriots locker room as “Buddy” — officially returned to New England on Wednesday, signing a one-year deal with the Patriots.
Christopher Price
10/13/2009 - 10:34pm
Welcome back to the mailbag. You guys really brought it this week, with lots of good Patriots talk.
Christopher Price
10/12/2009 - 10:32pm
FOXBORO — At the end of Sunday’s Patriots-Broncos game, on one sideline, there was the quarterback who engineered a fourth-quarter drive to tie the game and eventually lead his team to a dramatic overtime victory.
Christopher Price

For Josh McDaniels, it was just another football game. Sure. Like “The Godfather” is just another movie, Picasso just another artist and Jay-Z just another rapper.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO — It hasn’t been a good year for Laurence Maroney.
Christopher Price
10/07/2009 - 7:47pm
FOXBORO — Tom Brady has heard the critics, but is not going to be swayed.
Christopher Price

It is a crisp, efficient football mailbag this week, with lots of good questions that got right to the point. A good football game can produce plenty of good e-mail. As always, feel free to join in the fun by sending your e-mails to cprice@weei.com. Now, on with the show … -- Christopher,

While the Patriots pass rushers have been slow to pick up sacks this year — they have eight sacks through four games, 10th in the AFC — they still have done plenty to pressure the quarterback.
Christopher Price
10/05/2009 - 11:30pm
FOXBORO — Patriots coach Bill Belichick has gone through this before. After all, when you’ve been a head coach in the NFL for 14-plus seasons, you’re bound to face a former assistant once in a while.
Christopher Price
10/04/2009 - 11:58pm
FOXBORO — A week ago, the Patriots offense had its chance to make a statement on a pair of fourth-down situations. On both occasions, it came through, converting twice on a key possession to keep an important second-half drive alive in a win over the Falcons.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO — For years, it was a job held by Rodney Harrison.
