Brandon LaFell (0 catches) is talking to Tom Brady ‘a lot’ these days

FOXBORO — Brandon LaFell admits he’s still not quite on the same page with Tom Brady but he’s getting there. With all the talk this week about the trust factor between Brady and the receiving corps, LaFell was asked Friday his feelings on where his rapport stands with the quarterback. LaFell caught six passes for […]

Raiders vs. Patriots preview

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – There is a stunning contrast between the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders in the past 15 seasons. Consider this statistic, brought to the fore this week by ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates: Since head coach Bill Belichick was hired by New England in 2000, the Raiders have had eight head coaches and 18 starting quarterbacks. The Patriots, with one head coach and three starting quarterbacks (Drew Bledsoe, Tom Brady, Matt Cassel) in that span, represent stability, while the Raiders are at the opposite end of the spectrum.

Old resume illustrates Tom Brady's upward spiral

Would you hire this recent college grad?His resume includes: bachelor of general studies from the University of Michigan with a 3.3/4.0 GPA. (Way to build in that wiggle room!) Also, interned at Merrill Lynch, helped manage the clubhouse at the Michigan golf course, was a starter at another country club, and worked construction. Oh, and was elected captain of the Michigan football team and “guided football team as starting quarterback” to a Big Ten Championship and post­season bowl victory.

With the events of the last two weeks, it’s now become stop-the-presses news when an NFL star shows up on TMZ. But the latest “bombshell” involving a member of the Patriots turned out to be harmless, when the news outlet tracked down one of Tom Brady’s old construction bosses. In the wake of Brady releasing […]

Tom Brady, Patriots offense hurt from mistakes

FOXBORO — There’s no reason to be in a frenzy over Tom Brady’s reliance upon his two best pass catchers through a pair of regular-season games.While the Patriots offense has issues, Brady’s devotion to Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski seems relatively harmless compared to early-down penalties, third-down failures and an offensive line that hasn’t yet hit its stride.

Buckley: Not well played, Tom Brady

Tom Brady went on the radio Monday morning and made a comment about trying to “stay in my lane,” when he was asked about the growing personal conduct scandals that are turning the National Football League into a national embarrassment.

Rob Gronkowski says earning Tom Brady’s trust ‘takes a long time’

FOXBORO — The two buzzwords flying around Gillette Stadium this week are “balance” and “trust.” Balance in play-calling and distribution, according to Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, will lead to a more efficient and productive offense. Trust in the receiving corps will lead to Brady looking over all of his passing options and not zeroing […]

Brady, Patriots not in Spurs-like form

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- In a training camp chat with Sirius XM NFL Radio, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady talked about his desire to lead an offense that was like the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA. "You watch the Spurs this year in the championship, and whoever the ball got kicked out to was going to make the shot," Brady said at the time. "I think that’s what makes an offense. It’s not, 'Throw it to one guy and see if he can create something.

Tom Brady Must Make Use of All of New England's Pass-Catchers

The Patriots Offense Was Exactly What the Doctor Ordered

The Patriots Offense Was Exactly What the Doctor Ordered

The Patriots offense was not spectacular and there's plenty of room to grow- but they made adjustments that were necessary for the current state of the roster. The offense has not been great this year. "Good" might be pushing it for a team that ranks 27th in yards per game (or 32nd if you adjust for penalty yards). But Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings was exactly what the doctor prescribed to get the team back on track. In the opening week against the Dolphins, quarterback Tom Brady threw 53 pass attempts, with 10 of them going 20+ yards down the field. The Patriots completed...

Rodney Harrison on MFB: ‘I wouldn’t worry about Tom’ Brady

Patriots' 3rd-quarter review: Brady's glove

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- Picked-up pieces from third-quarter review of the New England Patriots’ 30-7 victory over the Vikings: 1. Quarterback Tom Brady appeared to switch to a new glove on his left non-throwing hand for the start of the quarter, which had us going back to watch the season opener to see if he was wearing a glove at all. He wasn’t. So that’s a question we hope to ask Brady in his regular Wednesday news conference this week: Why was he wearing a glove on his non-throwing hand against the Vikings, but not against the Dolphins?

So far, Brady only has eyes for Edelman

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady keeps saying that the offense is not where it needs to be. “We just have to find ways to get everybody the ball and spread it around to different guys,” Brady said on Monday morning in an interview with WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan. So is the key to a successful Patriots offense as simple as distributing the football to players other than wide receiver Julian Edelman? Through two games, Edelman has 12 receptions for 176 yards and a touchdown.
