The New York Jets are currently auditioning new super fans to lead the rallying cry in the stadium, a position previously held by Fireman Ed. Don’t ask us how, but we managed to get our hands on the leaked audition tapes.

Logan Mankins is everything we would ever want in a football player. It is hard to imagine a better player at his position, a tougher competitor or a person to represent our program. He is one of the all-time great Patriots and the best guard I ever coached. Logan brought a quiet but unmistakable presence and leadership that will be impossible to duplicate. Unfortunately, this is the time of year when difficult decisions have to be made - and this is one of the most difficult we will ever make - but like every other decision it was made for what we feel is in the best interests of the team.
Of course Hoodie gushes about Mankins after he trades him. Much love for the big guy, though. Pretty much all that need be said. He’ll be missed. Might not be twilighting in career, but best days may be behind him. Still a force, a presence, a great Patriot. Pats added alotta depth at guard, youthful beef (great band or porn name?) and I think they’ll be OK there. Remember how well Josh Kline played in Baltimore last December? I’ll take a healthy serving of that and some Cannon fire, too. And hey, if Tim Wright can come in, learn the system, be the good kind of Rutgers, and be 75% of Hernando, plus not be murdery? It’s a win. A surprise win. A bittersweet win. But perhaps a necessary win for the Pats.

I’m gonna go have a 16 ozer for Mankins. You guys GFY, and let’s go Pats!

My guy @cpman_12 with your daily dose of awesome #Patriots fanticipation.

ONLY 19 DAYS TILL MY ARIZONA-BONAH IS IN FULL BLOOM!

Now that Manziel flipped off the #Redskins I’m a fan. Wish it was aimed @ the refs. #JohnnyGFY

Nothing all day long will make me as happy as watching Randy Moss say “Straight Bass Homie” on a loop (via @LOLPats)

Man, I miss Moss. The Straight Cash Homie. Bet TFB does, too.

This is why we still, and always will, love Randy Moss #straightbasshomie #patriots (via @sbnation) 

If Amendola can stay as healthy as he can make juggling circus catches watch out this season!

Seriously, I know the prospect of Amendola staying healthy is as likely as Israel and Gaza sharing a dinner at The Olive Garden, but still…one can dream! He’d go off the charts if he could stay healthy enough-ish to play even 14 tilts with the Pats. Hey, so longas he’s there when they need him most.

Yeah, I know - wishful thinking Thursday. And no, I haven’t started drinking today. Yet.

The #Patriots did the Ice Bucket Challenge as a team. Awesome. And then issued the challenge to the entirety of the AFC East. Love it. Little known fact: their buckets were filled with ice cubes and the tears of Jets fans.

I can’t wait for football.

Best #icebucketchallenge we’ve seen so far…and there have been a lot of them #Patriots

The New England Patriots and their ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Another Manning brothers DirecTV rap song commercial? Because waiting for real football to begin isn’t mind-numbing and painful enough? Sweet mercy, this is torture, I tell you. TORTURE!

My fantasy is to see a blimp full of cat litter and broken dildos crash into these two. What’s yours?

@tysonkingYKIH makes the best #Patriots trailers. His 2014 teaser has me ready to run through a brick wall, as usual.

There aren’t enough words or internet bandwidth available to describe properly or even contain my Bradyboner and Patspantstent right now. And we haven’t even seen preseason snap numero uno yet.
