Patriots bolster defensive line with Shaun Ellis

By Greg
The Patriots have made another addition to their defensive line. They now have brought in ex Jet Shaun Ellis. Ellis is a defensive end who played for the Jets the last 11 years had 72 sacks over that period of time.

Ellis can play in either the 4-3 or the 3-4, he will give the Pats a stout run defender in the 4-3 along with the ability to get after the QB. Last season he had 5 sacks, the seasons before he had 6.5 and 8. He also sacked Brady twice in the playoff match up last season, one to forget. He has been a Patriot killer over the past few seasons with BB double teaming him often.

The defensive line is now coming into shape. Wilfork, Haynesworth and Ellis will be extremely tough to run against. Ellis and Anderson bring pressure to the qb, while Cunningham brings speed and youth.

81 reasons why Randy Moss should go into the Hall of Fame as a Patriot

By Rocky

He set the record for most touchdowns in a season (23) by a wide receiver in 2007 with the Pats.

He averaged 16 touchdowns a season as a Patriot and 13 per season as a Viking.

In terms of complete seasons he averaged 1 extra yard on his longest completion in New England vs the Metrodome.

He averaged 3 more first downs 61-to-58 in a Flying Elvii hat.

After Oakland broke him and Raiders’ head coach Tom Walsh said, “Randy Moss is a player whose skills are diminishing, and he's in denial of those eroding skills...Randy was a great receiver, but he lacked the work ethic and the desire to cultivate any skills that would compensate for what he was losing physically later in his career." He went on to double (x 2) his receptions and (x 2) his yardage per game.

According to Pro Football Reference his 2007 Patriots season was one of the 67 best of all-time with their highly scientific rating of 20.

Had his only interception (1) playing for the Patriots in 2009.

His average fantasy football position rank was 1 spot better with the Pats than the Vikes.

He was called a bad egg (well, that’s on the nicest side of the scale), was fined once (1) for mooning a crowd in Vikings pads, came to New England and was fined for criticizing officiating but that was rescinded as it was thought he had a point, and then when he went back to wearing the horns was fined twice (2) again.

He is the number 1 Pats wide receiver of all time in yards per game—he averaged 75 yards every time he suited up for the red, white and blue.

In 2010 he spent four games as a Patriot and scored 3 times; he only reached the endzone twice as a Viking in the same amount of games before he realized there’s no place like New England, there’s no place like New England.

Randy Moss’s Wikipedia photo is of him in Patriots gear (+ 1), though that was two teams ago (In comparison Brett Favre’s photo is of him in a Wrangler Jeans ad, I mean from his time with the Packers).

For every two videos on YouTube tagged “Randy Moss, Vikings” there are 3 tagged “Randy Moss, Patriots.” And the whole “straight cash homey” thing happened in Minnesota.

He played in 1 more Super Bowl with the Patriots than any other team. 

23 + 16 + 1 + 3 + 4 + 20 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 3 + 1 + 3 + 1 + 1 = 81

He is number 1 and 81 in our hearts.

Matt Light re ups for two years

By: Greg
The most important positions in the NFL is the offensive line, without a good one your QB wont have time to throw and get thier heads taken off. In the off season it looked like there would be at least two new starting offensive linemen protecting Brady but Logan Mankins agreed to sign the franchise tag and now Matt Light has agreed to a two year deal.

This move means that the Pats are bring back all of thier starting offensive linemen, a group that was outstanding last year. The Pats also draft Nate Solder in the first round and Marcus Cannon (a projected 2nd rd pick) later in the draft, making the Pats offensive lines one of the best groups on paper. The signing of Light gives the two rookies time to be groomed and eased into the NFL.
I am sure that Brady feels a lot better having the 11 year veteran protecting him for another year.
