New England has been on the top of the NFL universe for some time now, but after a disturbing playoff exit last season, the Patriots are reloading for another run at a Super Bowl win.
Randy Moss has been a bit of a common folk among football players the last few years, far from the player he was early in his career in Minnesota.
He never quite fit in Oakland and his unhappiness with playing on a losing team took his interest away from the game.
Now he gets another shot at becoming great in a place where players flock to revive their careers and their reputations. The New England Patriots have become the New York Yankees of football.
A couple of years ago a troubled Corey Dillon left his problems behind and became not only a model citizen, but also a Super Bowl champion. Moss is looking to follow Dillon’s path to the top, a path that goes directly through Bill Belicheck and the New England Patriots.
The Pats have added other big name receivers in Donte Stallworth and Wes Welker, who doubles as a top notch punt returner. The intent in camp this year is simple to see, be able to match the offense of the Indianapolis Colts, punch for punch.
New England will get a look at their revamped offense on Friday night when they travel to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs are favored by 2.5 and the total on the game is 33.
Tiger Woods On Pace To Win A Bet Against John Smoltz

The PGA Championship was the last chance for Tiger Woods to avoid doing something he has not done since 2004, go a whole calendar year without winning a major title.
In true Tiger fashion he would not let himself down as he played well enough on Sunday to hold off the competition and win his 13th major championship. He is on pace to shatter Jack Nicklaus’ major championship record in the next few years.
The interesting side note to this championship win was a bet that was made in the baseball off season between Woods and Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz.
The two get together throughout the year to play golf together, and this year in spring training, they made a bet.
Tiger bet that he would win more tournaments than Smoltz would have wins this season. The way the bet works is, every win by Tiger on the tour equals three Smoltz victories.
Tiger has won 5 tournaments after Sundays PGA win, which equals 15 victories from Smoltz. As of Sunday, Smoltz only had ten wins, and although winning five more games down the stretch is possible, it is not likely.
So once again, Tiger will most likely prove that he is not just the best in his sport, but one of the greatest athletes of a generation.
