About Me: Male, Age: 22, Dover, NH About Me: I watched Super Bowl XX with my mom when I was two weeks old; lucky for me she was an adamant fan before I was born. At about age 9, I was already engaged in playing Pee-Wee Football for my home town in Dover, NH, there were 12 teams in the league all sporting NFL names. Call it fate, or by chance I ended up being randomly assigned to a team donning the Patriots logo. I wore the jersey #12 (coincidence? Maybe, I did play quarterback for a year) for four years until I moved on to Dover Middle School football. About the time I started playing in the Pee-Wee League, I was already a crazed Patriots fan. It was around that time they entered Super Bowl XXXI. I was so passionate about the organization, I admit, I teared up when the Patriots went two touchdowns behind in the fourth quarter. Since, I have never given up on the team, from the Pete Carroll years to Bill Belichick, to the early 21st generation Championships; I never lost sight of my team. I continue to follow NCAA football, right into the combine, then the draft (seen usually at Gillette), off-season work outs and personnel moves, right into rookie/OTA and mandatory training camp. I do this because I love the game. I also do this because I want to see who will be the new kid to wear that blue, silver, and red jersey that means so much to me. One day I will be a season ticket holder, I acknowledge this is something that will not happen in the near future. It is something that will be a goal of mine. In this distant future, I will be attending a New England Patriots game almost every Sunday as an older fan, and I assure you, still being the loudest person in the crowd.

    God damnit. Here we go again. I love smash mouth football, but there are new rules, and there has been four new rules in-place this year JUST to protect the head of another player. Henne's brain wasn' more »

    Thanks bbobbo for the video, clip-by-clip youtube isn't the best for NFL detective work. Notice on the video at second number 12, the crown of his helmet is more »

    I try not to repeat myself but if you follow the thread, I believe, Burgess was orginally called, or were both called? I do know what the call was, but there are multiple reasons for why Chung had rec more »

    This thread is not about NFL entertainment, the refs favoring one side or the other, Chung's tackling form, or people are 'wusses' (not the term I would normally use) because this is football and it's more »

    No way, chest first, then Chung's helmet drove up and under his facemask. The top of Chung's helmet drove directly into his chin. more »

    I agree, for the most part it's never any players intention to drive his helmet into anothers, espicially up under the facemask. Pat Chung is well known for his energy and extra effort, there was no s more »

    I don't think this is a one time thing for Meriweather. I think his first year he was clouded by position placement on a injury riddled socondary, still learning the book. His second year he was blowi more »

    Like last week, Moss is basically saying "I know the playbook, call the plays where I am the #1 reciever or I'll take the day off." Second Wednesday snooze day in a row. I feel like O'Brien or whoever more »
