Light on Big Show: 'Great test' for offense

Patriots left tackle joined The Big Show to talk about this week's matchup with the Steelers and also take one last look back at what went wrong against the Browns. Light called the Steelers "a great test for our offense," and noted that Troy Polamalu, particularly stands out.

 

"Troy Polamalu is a dynamic player at his position and the things he does in that defense," Light said. "He's fun to watch. You hope you don't watch him make too many big plays when you're playing against him. They've got a lot of good players. Hats off to them and their style and how they play it. It's a great test for out offense." 

 

Light said there isn't any great mystery when it comes to playing the Steelers. "It's not like the Steelers have 30 different packages that they throw out there on the field," he said. "They pretty much play their defense. For the most part you're going to see a 3-4...

Epstein: Sox want Beltre, Martinez back

On a conference call with beat writers, Red Sox GM Theo Epstein said that while the team is planning for any number of contingencies this offseason, its preferred course of action would be to bring back Adrian Beltre to play third base and Victor Martinez to continue to catch.

 

Beltre was just honored with a Silver Slugger Award as the top hitting third baseman in the American League after hitting .321 with a .919 OPS, 28 homers and 102 RBI. Martinez, in his season and a half with the Sox, hit .313 with an .865 OPS, 28 homers and 120 RBI in 183 games.

 

“Our first choice for our third baseman in 2011 and beyond would be to bring back Adrian Beltre,” said Epstein. “Victor would certainly be our first choice to be our 2011 catcher and beyond. He did an outstanding job for us in the year and a half he was here. … I know it’s been portrayed in the media a little bit as if we haven’t...

Haslem fires back at Pierce tweet

If you were wondering if Paul Pierce's now infamous tweet: 'It's been a pleasure to bring my talents to south beach now on to Memphis' had any effect on the Miami Heat, it did. Heat forward Udonis Haslem described Pierce as "studio gangster" after Miami's practice Friday. The Celtics beat the Heat 112-107 Thursday night, their second win over Miami in as many tries.

Taylor on D&H: Patience key with Steelers

Patriots running back Fred Taylor appeared on the Dale & Holley show Friday afternoon as part of WEEI's Patriots Friday. Taylor has missed five games with turf toe, an injury he's learned to respect after previously not taking it seriously when he heard about it from other affected players.

 

"It's a frustrating injury," he said. "You re-aggravate it with each step. I always compare it to a sore thumb or a sprained thumb. Every time you take a step, it's brutal. For me, the one that I did on the left foot was actually a slightly torn tendon ligament, and the right foot was turf toe from after the first game of the season."

 

Taylor said an injured toe often leads to other injuries. "It's the center of your universe," he said. "Once that thing gets banged up or hurt, you start altering your walk, then you alter your run. Then you compensate, and then all of a sudden you have a tight calf...

Boychuk hopes to return by next weekend
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk, out since Oct. 23 with a fractured forearm, was one of only five Bruins to take the ice at Ristuccia Arena on Friday. He was joined by fellow rehabbing players Marco Sturm and Marc Savard, as well as goaltenders Tuukka Rask and Tim Thomas. It was the first time he has been able to shoot on goalies since the injury. 

 

The prognosis for Boychuk's return was four weeks, and he hopes to still be on track for a return by the latter part of this month.

 

"Maybe. Hopefully. I hope so," Boychuk said when asked if he was optimistic he could return by next weekend. "That will be four weeks I think, so hopefully I'll be good to go."

 

Boychuk admitted that it's a matter of "just seeing whenever the doctor says I'm going to be OK to practice [with the team]," and not trying to push it. He said he is still experiencing occasional pain,...
