Patriots’ Patrick Chung pleads not guilty on drug charge

New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung focused on football, not the cocaine possession charge he is facing, after waiving a court appearance in New Hampshire. Chung spoke briefly with reporters inside the Patriots’ locker room after a lawyer entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. The 10-year veteran says he’s focusing on going to practice and meetings, learning the playbook and recovering from an injury he suffered last season. His next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 8.

Couch Slouch gets the scoop from Bill Belichick himself

Couch Slouch: As a public service, I usually provide an annual Super Bowl Viewing Guide (for Super Bowl Parties of Six or More). But this year, all of you are on your own – in short, I recommend Cheez-Its, fried squash blossoms and Yuengling – because I procured an exclusive interview with New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick.

Dick LeBeau vs Bill Belichick meet in rare playoff battle

Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard sees the matchup between Tennessee defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau and Bill Belichick and his New England Patriots as a showdown for the ages between two of the NFL’s best coaches ever. LeBeau has coached 45 consecutive seasons in the NFL, two more than Belichick. The AFC divisional round will be the first playoff game between the coaches since January 2005. Belichick says matching wits with LeBeau is very challenging.

Patriots coach dons Houston hat, ‘shout out’ to flooded city

Bill Belichick is sending his best wishes to the city of Houston and the victims of historic flooding there. The New England Patriots coach appeared at his post-game news conference wearing a University of Houston hat. He says he had a great experience there in February, and who can blame him? The Patriots won their fifth Super Bowl in the city seven months ago.

Norman Chad: The smarmiest man in the room

Bill Belichick might be both a genius and a jerk – they are not mutually exclusive. Just because you are the smartest person in the room doesn’t mean you can’t also be the smarmiest, smuggest person in the room.

How do Patriots rank in NFL history?

The Patriots have the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history. Cue the debate on whether it translates into the greatest dynasty in the NFL, and maybe where New England ranks among dominant pro sports franchises.

Column: Patriots’ familiar act assures little in Super Bowl

For most anyone outside the New England area it’s hardly cause for celebration to see the Patriots in yet another Super Bowl. There’s just not a lot to like about a coach and players who never let anyone get too close to what they’re feeling or what they plan to do.

Super Bowl opening night a bit more tame than usual

A man traipsing around Monday’s Super Bowl opening night in a full-length gown declaring himself “The Empress of Austria, Elizabeth I” was the most outrageous guest at what was a rather tame media night compared to the circus this event has been in the past.

NFL notes: Manning lent Osweiler a helping hand on big win

This is Brock Osweiler’s team – for now, at least. And everybody’s on board, including Peyton Manning. The five-time MVP hobbled by an injured left foot met with Osweiler at halftime Sunday night to go over things he’d seen on TV while watching the Patriots-Broncos game from an auxiliary area outside the team’s locker room.

Couch Slouch has reasons not to watch Super Bowl

If I had known that Pete Carroll and Bill Belichick were going to meet in Super Bowl 49, I would’ve just watched college football all season. Since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 – yes, youngsters, that’s pre-ESPN but it was a big deal – there have been few coaches Couch Slouch has disdained more than Carroll and Belichick. Next thing you know, the 2016 presidential election will come down to Donald Trump and Wile E. Coyote.
