The New England Patriots, who are typically seen as a beacon of success in the NFL, are currently at the center of a whirlwind of rumors and skepticism. The future of Bill Belichick, their iconic coach, is rife with speculation. There’s chatter about a potential blockbuster trade, possibly to a team such as the Chargers, in return for prominent players like quarterback Justin Herbert or the impressive Joey Bosa. The notion of trading coaches might seem unconventional, but it isn’t without precedent; Belichick’s tenure with the New England Patriots started through a trade from the Jets.

With a challenging start to the season leaving the New England Patriots at 2-7, speculation abounds about a return to a strategy from the mid-90s: deliberately losing games to secure the first draft pick. Such a move could allow the New England Patriots to acquire a game-changing player like USC’s quarterback Caleb Williams, potentially revitalizing the franchise.

In an era that has seen the New England Patriots’ sustained success for nearly two decades, the current dialogue marks a stark contrast. The burning question: Are the New England Patriots the weakest link in the NFL today? That seems exaggerated, especially when looking at the Arizona Cardinals, who also seem to be strategizing for the future by trading their quarterback Josh Dobbs to the Vikings, where he’s already claimed a win.

Turning away from these sobering sports debates, let’s delve into a more lighthearted matter. Beyond another Lombardi Trophy, the New England Patriots fans might be craving something else—like a chicken sandwich from Shake Shack. Here’s a fun fact: should any NFL player perform the chicken dance this coming weekend, fans will be rewarded with a free chicken sandwich from Shake Shack.

Details on this appetizing promotion are forthcoming, but in the meantime, let’s speculate: Which NFL player is most likely to perform the chicken dance? Who will be the one to offer not just a moment of humor but also a tasty treat to the fans? It’s a playful consideration to accompany the anticipation of that complimentary sandwich.

  • 1. Not Travis Kelce

    While Killa Trav (Travis Kelce’s nickname) would more than likely love to get you that free chicken…The Chiefs aren’t playing this week. But if the “stanky leg” that Travis Kelce performed in the Super Bowl could get you free food we’d all be clincally obese thanks to Mr. Swift.

  • 2. Also not Justin Jefferson

    He’s on the injured reserve with a bad hammy. The Griddy is more his move anyway.

  • 3. Mac Jones?

    Hear me out. While the Patriots haven’t exactly been lighting up the scoreboard lately Mac has been known to dance in the end zone. Remember this from the 2022 Pro-Bowl?


  • 4. The Colts Jonathan Taylor

    While he’s not known as an Astaire of the End-Zone Taylor did have a mini-celebration the last time he played the Patriots. Maybe being in Germany will make him feel more generous?

  • 5. Juju Smith Schuster

    Granted Juju hasn’t scored any touchdowns for The Patriots this year, but last year when he was with The Chiefs he was known to have some exotic TD celebrations
