Randy Moss returned to the Minnesota Vikings yesterday as the latest victim of the Patriot Way, the “get out while we can still get draft picks for you” way.

Maybe he’s…… Continue reading Week 4 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Rookie of the Year?

When New England traded Richard Seymour to the Oakland Raiders, it proved one thing: Bill Belichick will do anything for a first round draft pick. Draft picks are like crack to him. Belichick cannot refuse.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Wherefore art thou Patriots?
