Brady: 'Obviously, it’s good to be 3-0'

FOXBORO — Record wise, the Patriots couldn’t have had a better start to the season.

The team is 3-0, one of three AFC teams without a loss over the first three weeks. Led by Tom Brady, the offense has put up 119 points over the first three games, which is the most points in franchise history through the first three weeks of a season.

Despite the start, Brady has been in the league long enough to know starting 3-0 doesn’t mean much.

“Obviously, it’s good to be 3-0 — better than being 0-3, or 1-2, or 2-1,” Brady said. “I think before we really get to know what we’re all about and what the other teams are all about, it’s good to win the games however you can win them. That’s what you have to do. We have a long road ahead. I think everyone has to be tuned in with what we’re trying to do in order to accomplish what our goals are.”

The Patriots will be one of...

Belichick on '07: 'Don't compare to anybody'

FOXBORO — The comparisons have already begun. And so too, have the questions.

Are the 2015 Patriots going down the same path as the 2007 Patriots? Are those questions an unnecessary and unwanted distraction?

Bill Belichick did his best to shoot down any conversation on the topic as he focused on the Patriots bye week Wednesday workout.

“We don’€™t compare ourselves to anybody,” Belichick said. “We just try to go out there and improve, do a good job, get ready for Dallas next week.”

As Chris Price noted, the Patriots are averaging even more points to start this season than they did in 2007. The Patriots are also leading the NFL in points...

Belichick: All focus 'on the Patriots' today

FOXBORO — One of the biggest advantages of the bye week is that teams get the chance to self-scout and work on parts of the game they identify as areas to improve.

That’s exactly how Bill Belichick will be spending the last day of week before he sets the players free for a four-day bye weekend.

“Today is a day really to focus more on the Patriots than anything else, just to work on things that we need to work on based on the first three games and our practice situations,” Belichick announced in opening his Wednesday press conference at Gillette Stadium. “There’s things that will come up along the way that we need to clean up, go back and talk about it a little bit. Do a better job of coaching, do a better job of executing them on the field, understand...

Padres announcing Orsillo hiring Wed. or Thurs.

According to multiple sources, the San Diego Padres will announce the hiring of Don Orsillo either Wednesday or Thursday.

Orsillo will be participating in both the team’s radio and television broadcasts for the 2016 season. He will then transition to strictly TV for the remainder of his contract.

The plan to integrate the current NESN Red Sox play-by-play announcer into radio stems from Dick Enberg’s commitment to still do approximately 60 television games in ’16, along with a desire to allow for a consistent presence from Orsillo in his new market.

The 46-year-old Orsillo had been the Pawtucket Red Sox radio announcer prior to joining NESN in 2001.

He joins a Padres organization that is led by executives with Boston roots, with former Red Sox COO Mike Dee...
