Tom Brady's official fan page on Facebook released the message, “Just win” after news broke the Patriots and its star quarterback agreed to a 3-year, $27 million contract extension.
On Monday, news broke the New England Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady agreed to a 3-year, $27 million contract extension that would keep the future Hall of Famer in nearby Foxborough through the 2017 season. On Tuesday, the NFL and local media remain abuzz over Brady’s contract with the popular debate sparking from one simple question, “Why?” Why did Brady sign the contract extension now? Why did he agree to take half his market value in the last three years of his extended deal when he will be 38, 39 and 40 years old? Brady, via his official fan page on Facebook, offered an answer shortly after news of the contract extension broke Monday. “Just win,” the Facebook status read. The message supports the notion that Brady struck the deal …

Ravens, Pats will square off in AFC Championship Game.
The playoffs have not been kind to offense-based teams this year. The regular season was dominated by three teams that play offense well, but defense poorly: the Green Bay Packers, the New Orleans Saints and the New England Patriots. All three entered the playoffs with high seeds. Only the Patriots remain. That's the primary reason for the Pats to be nervous about their game against the Ravens — that lingering sense that, even in this year of record-setting offense, defense will still win the day. There are some positive signs for the Pats, though. They're coming off their utter domination of the Denver Broncos, while the Ravens struggled mightily against the Houston Texans. The Ravens had trouble with both the Texans offensive and …

Looking back at the week of January 9 - January 13.

The Patriots will take on the surprising Broncos in Foxborough on Saturday.
The New England Patriots are set to take on the Denver Broncos — and media darling Tim Tebow — in Foxborough on Saturday. The Broncos, of course, are coming off a shocking upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night, having won the game on the first play of overtime. So, how will the Patriots fare in this matchup? It's instructive to look at how Denver beat the Steelers. As has been noted, the Steelers ran a defense that essentially sold out against the run, putting their safeties in the box to stop the Denver ground attack. This was to Pittsburgh's detriment, however, as Denver's receivers won their one-on-one matchups to catch deep passes down the field. When the Steelers failed to put pressure on Tebow on passing downs, they lost …

Patriots take what had been their toughest remaining game.
The New England Patriots put together a really good performance in all phases of the game Sunday afternoon as they dispatched the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-20. Things did not look good in the early going, as the Pats D gave up an easy touchdown drive to the Eagles, including a 58-yard bomb from Vince Young to Riley Cooper. Things got worse when the offense went three-and-out, putting a confused defense back on the field. The D surrendered a field goal, but they would regroup and only allow 10 points the rest of the way. Here are some thoughts on the game: MVP: Tom Brady, quarterback. Brady regained his early-season form yesterday, looking accurate and comfortable from the second quarter on. He ended up with 361 yards and three touchdowns (it…

The Patriots get set to play a talented but foundering Eagles team.
This week, the New England Patriots will face their toughest test remaining this season: the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have had their share of problems this year, but it hasn't been for lack of talent. The team has given away the ball at inopportune times and collapsed in the fourth quarter in multiple games. Here are things to watch this afternoon: Is the pass rush for real? The Patriots have made two successive quarterbacks look uncomfortable: Mark Sanchez of the Jets and Tyler Palko of the Chiefs. Their defensive line has finally been able to produce pressure, even with (or perhaps because of) the release of Albert Haynesworth. For the team to continue its defensive improvement, Andre Carter must have another big day. The Eagles, …
