Does Leon Washington signing with the Patriots mean Danny Woodhead won’t be back?

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

Free agency is in full swing. The first wave is in the books and the second wave is winding down. We are entering the point of free agency where the good teams like to operate and find bargains that will complement a contending team. The Patriots have been relatively quiet, outside of the Wes Welker/Danny Amendola swap, but there is plenty of movement throughout the league. One thing is certain, the market is softening and there are a lot of veteran players out there sweating it out, trying to find any deal that pays them.

Here are my thoughts on day three of free agency.

The Paradox of Danny Woodhead

NEPD Staff Writer Joon Lee

I have a man-crush on Danny Woodhead. There I said it. Sure, he isn’t the flashiest back on the Patriots (that goes to Stevan Ridley), not the biggest, but he is one of the most important parts of the Patriots offense.

For years, writers and fans adored running back Kevin Faulk. He was a quintessential New England Patriots. For years, the guy was a grinder, a guy who the Patriots could rely on in tough situations and could be counted on for consistent yardage. Woodhead has been called the second-coming of Kevin Faulk. And he is. Danny Woodhead is Kevin Faulk 2.0.

NEPD Staff Writer Joon Lee

Going into this season, I had absolutely no doubt that this Patriots team would be the best team that New England has seen 2007. The offense was absolutely stacked, the defense was revamped and Tom Brady was absolutely on top of his game after his fifth trip to the Superbowl.

There were even whispers that we could potentially see a perfect season with the Patriots having one of the weaker schedules in the NFL.

Instead, we’ve seen more of the same as last year. An electrifying offense and a “bend, but don’t break” defense.

Have the Patriots Become A Run-First Offense?

Is Stevan Ridley the Patriots first option?

NEPD Staff Writer: Dan Hope

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his ability to pass the ball has been the backbone of the Patriots’ offense ever since Brady took over for Drew Bledsoe in 2001, led the team to a Super Bowl and started building one of the greatest quarterback careers of all-time.

The Patriots’ offense has a different look and feel, however, this season.

Patriots Training Camp Preview: Running Backs

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Shane Vereen could add another dimension to the Patriots offense.

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

No position competition on the 2012 New England Patriots’ roster is more wide open than the running back position. The Patriots lost BenJarvus Green-Ellis in free agency, but return a very talented quartet of runners who will challenge for playing time.

How will the depth chart shake out and who is in line for the most carries?

Continue reading as we preview the Patriots Running Backs going into training camp.

If you’ve watched the National coverage of the Super Bowl this week it seems futile to even play the game. All we’ve heard this week is “the Patriots have no shot, the Giants pass rush is too good, Eli Manning is now the best QB in football, the Giants are the hot team.”

Fortunately for Patriot fans the game will be played on Sunday night and the Patriots actually do have a chance to win the game. Here are 10 reasons why the Patriots will actually win Super Bowl 46 on Sunday night.

Yeah, I'll take this guy over Maroney.

If the 2010 Patriots matched up against the 2011 Patriots, who gets the edge? After the jump, we pick sides.
