Chris Hogan vs. Danny Amendola: Who Will Come Out on Top?

As we progress through the off-season, one of the main storylines for the Patriots could be who becomes the team's "true" #2 wide receiver behind Julian Edelman? Will it be the elder statesman Danny Amendola or the new kid on the block Chris Hogan? Last season, one of the biggest issues that the Patriots dealt with was injuries. And when the injuries started piling on, the team's weak wide receiver depth was exposed. When Julian Edelman went down with a foot injury last season that required him to miss several games, Danny Amendola was the "de-facto" #1 wide receiver. But when Danny...

Patriots WR Julian Edelman lists the 5 best burger joints in Boston

Well, now I know what I’m doing this weekend. New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is known for his love of the hamburger. He hosts his own YouTube show called Burgertyme and acknowledges his never-ending hunt for the perfect burger. Edelman dedicates “20 hours, six days a week” to football, according to a recent interview with Bloomberg, but understands that “you need to get away and enjoy life so you appreciate what you worked for.” In his downtime, Edelman likes to skateboard around with teammate Danny Amendola and find a burger to eat. “We’ll start on...

OG Jonathan Cooper wants to rewrite history with the Patriots

The Patriots newest guard is fighting for a starting role and to change his career. The New England Patriots interior line has been the downfall of the offense for the better part of the past decade. As the interior plays, so goes the rest of the offense. We can point to how the Giants dismantled the Patriots offense with their patented NASCAR packages with four defensive ends, and how current Patriot, but then-Bronco, defensive tackle Terrance Knighton disemboweled Logan Mankins and the interior line in 2013. We could see how the the offense solidified in 2014 after inserting Bryan Stork...

The New England Patriots feature highly in these rankings, with quarterback Tom Brady, wide receiver Julian Edelman,...

Comparing Julian Edelman’s career arc to Wes Welker’s

Julian Edelman and Wes Welker are two of the most productive slot receivers Tom Brady has ever had – does Welker’s career tell us what we might expect from Edelman? Wes Welker, man.  It already seems like forever ago that he packed his bags for Denver after getting lowballed by the Patriots in 2013.  And then, just a couple years after getting boat-raced in the Super Bowl, it looks like Welker may be hanging up the spikes for good. Sports Illustrated, Comcast Sports Net New England’s Tom Curran, PatsCap’s Miguel Benzan, and our own Rich Hill have pointed out that over the next...
