- The look into the X’s and O’s of the Patriots’ most memorable touchdowns of 2010 is winding down, and yesterday I looked at WR Wes Welker’s 5-yard touchdown catch against the Detroit Lions from Week 12. Later today, I finish off the Most Memorable Touchdowns X’s and O’s series with a look at TE Rob Gronkowski’s touchdown reception against the Miami Dolphins from Week 17.
- Bill Belichick attended a reunion of the Super Bowl Champion 1986 New York Giants. Pretty cool stuff to see him and Bill Parcells together again.
- DE/OLB Jermaine Cunningham and RB Kevin Faulk have both recently done some charity work for kids.
- Speaking of Kevin Faulk, he has no plans of retiring yet. Will he return to the Patriots? Time will tell.
- Sad news to report: Tom Brady’s passing mentor/guru Tom Martinez has not been given much longer to live. Brady has worked with Martinez every offseason, including just wrapping up some sessions with him last week. Thought sand prayers go out to his family.
