ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Danny Amendola knows what you think about him. Brittle. Always injured. Will never be as good -- or as durable -- as Wes Welker.

It’s the start of a new season, and the new year brings fresh challenges for Bill Belichick and the Patriots. In Sunday’s regular-season opener against the Bills in Buffalo, Belichick will be facing someone in Doug Marrone who has zero experience as a head coach in the NFL.

So, are you a glass-is-half-full individual? If so, you’re encouraged by the sight of rookie receiver Kenbrell Thompkins coming away with eight catches for 116 yards, as well as the sight of the Patriots No. 1 defense -- without Vince Wilfork -- playing very well when it counted.

After an offseason where roughly 8,435,117 stories were written about the impending downfall of the Patriots (and the passing game in particular), quarterback Tom Brady went out Friday night and put the NFL on notice: if you want to write off the New England passing game, well, you’ll do so at your own pe

FOXBORO -- The defining characteristic of the Patriots offense the last two seasons has been its uptempo, no-huddle approach. In 2011 and 2012, the Patriots went no-huddle on 25 percent of their snaps, an astounding total that allowed them to push the pace and keep opposing defenses off guard.

Tom Brady turned 36 Saturday, and while there has been some question as to whether or not the Patriots are putting too much on his shoulders this season with such dramatic turnover at the wide receiver spot, history tells us that no matter the personnel, some of the best quarterbacks in the history of the game have saved

In the end, there wasn’t a question as to whether or not it was going to be a happy ending for Aaron Hernandez. Instead, it was all just varying degrees of bad and sad for everyone involved.
