Since 2001, the Patriots and Colts have enjoyed one of the great rivalries in football, thanks in large part to Tom Brady a

It’s time for the Colts, which means we’ve got us some good Indianapolis talk in this week’s mailbag.

FOXBORO — The game-winning play began innocuously enough.

FOXBORO — For all the talk about the Miami’s vaunted Wildcat offense, it was special teams that sunk the Jets last week against the Dolphins, specifically Ted Ginn Jr.
Christopher Price
11/03/2009 - 8:17pm
Lots of Wildcat talk this week. Tons of it. People want to know how much Wildcat we’ll see from Miami on Sunday, how to stop it, and if the quarterback is fair game when he splits wide in a Wildcat formation.
Christopher Price
11/02/2009 - 10:56pm
If it were a movie, they would have billed the Wildcat offense as the feel-good hit of the 2008 season, a blockbuster no one saw coming.

As a player, Joe Andruzzi was a legendarily tough offensive lineman, someone who had to be dragged from the lineup. In his five seasons with the Patriots, he started 72 of a possible 80 regular-season games, including every game in each of New England’s three Super Bowl-winning seasons.

FOXBORO — It’s a rare event to see miscommunication between Tom Brady and Wes Welker.
Christopher Price
10/27/2009 - 6:05pm
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.
Christopher Price

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

FOXBORO — Patriots coach Bill Belichick officially closed the door on the Joey Galloway era in New England yesterday afternoon.

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 - 9:21pm
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.

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.

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.”
