Is Bill Belichick screwing everything up for the New England Patriots?

Let me say this before I get started: Bill Belichick is the greatest coach of all time. It shouldn’t even be debatable. None of the greats — Lombardi, Shula, Walsh — had to deal with what Belichick has mastered over the last two decades. They didn’t have to work around free agency or face a league full of fully capable (for the most part) coaches. Some of the old timers may...

WATCH: Tom Brady plays pickup basketball with a trash-talking Michael Jordan

What’s better than watching Tom Brady play basketball? Watching Tom Brady play basketball with a 50-year-old, trash-talking Michael Jordan. Just watch. It takes a lot of balls to play with Jordan, even now. That guy hasn’t stopped competing since the day he was born. But I guess that’s pretty much how Tom Brady works, too.

Rodney Harrison: Letting Revis walk 'was the right move to make'

Former New England Patriots safety and current NBC analyst Rodney Harrison says Bill Belichick, as unpopular as his decision may be, made the right move in letting cornerback Darrelle Revis bolt for the New York Jets.

NFL owners chose cost over game integrity

The NFL owners meetings were certainly anti-climactic. Entering the week it was believed that the use of replay would be expanded in some way, but what way was up in the air with multiple proposals on the docket.  New and improved replay procedures could've possibly included the review of personal fouls, illegal hits and penalties to name a few.  Or it could've included the suggestions...
