Haynesworth not expected to play vs. Lions

Despite returning to the practice field this week, Patriots defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth is not expected to play in Saturday night's preseason gameagainst the Lions. Haynesworth, who missed the first two preseason games and was a ghost for most of August before materializing this week, could very well enter the regular season without taking a preseason snap for New England. Next Thursday's preseason game against the Giants is often a game in which front-line players are used sparingly. It's not clear whether or not Haynesworth made the trip to Detroit. We'll try to get more as the day progresses.

Tom Brady posts skiing video with dated South Park reference

Tom Brady posts skiing video with dated South Park reference

Tom Brady’s annual attempt at making the collective testicles of New England draw up into its stomach has succeeded.

Brady posted on Instagram and Facebook a video (see below) of him skiing somewhere that we aren’t. He approaches a decent-sized jump, hits it, appears to stick the landing, blurts, “Whoa…” and then the camera shows an empty ski and a lifeless body. 

Actually, no lifeless body. Watched it a second time. No lifeless body.

Brady has graduated from sliding down waterslides and cliff-diving to this latest offseason effort to make sure everyone still cares about his safety.  

They do.

Next season, Russian Roulette.

If you french fry when you're supposed to pizza, you're gonna have a bad time! Trust me!!!
