As part of our focus on the NFL fans that inspire both NFL players and each other, we are announcing our partnership with PatriotsExtra. Each week we will feature a story from PatriotsExtra where their staff interviews or highlights a special Patriots fan. Stay tuned for much more from PatriotsExtra and other fan groups as we move through the season. It’s great to be a fan!
Enjoy a few pictures of some Patriots fans from PatriotsExtra to kick things off featuring Lisa Greenwood, superfan Debra, Brianne Syringg and Victor Thompson (Helmet Head).

About #FanFocus: The word fan first emerged as an Americanism around 1889 referring to baseball enthusiasts but today’s football fans are really the true modern day fanatics. While all sports have their fans, football fans have a uniquely intense devotion. We willingly submit to braving the elements in brutal temperatures, eat unusual culinary concoctions, theme decorate our homes, engage in remote control battles, and proudly wear body paint and tattoos all in an effort to show loyalty to our favorite players and teams. Pro Player Insiders is creating a special section on our website and partnering with dedicated fan groups throughout the country to highlight and engage with some of the most passionate NFL fans. If you are a fan group that fits that description, contact us on twitter @PlayerInsiders and let us know.
