Tom Brady joined guest hosts Bob Ryan and Troy Brown on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning for his weekly WEEI Patriots Monday appearance, one day after leading the Patriots to a 34-3 rout of the Bills to clinch the AFC East title and home field throughout the AFC playoffs.
Brady has gone 319 passes without throwing an interception, an NFL record. "As much as everyone points to me for that, so much of that goes into what we're doing offensively," he said. "With the protection that I get from the offensive line, I'm really never forced into rushing throws. Also, we've been ahead a lot of these games, so you really don't need to jam the ball into those tight areas that you would if you were really desperate in the second half, trying to get back. The receivers have done a great job of securing the catches. There's a lot that goes into it.
"It's been pretty great — we were talking...
Boomer Esiason of CBS Sports made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday with guest hosts Bob Ryan and Troy Brown.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had another stellar outing Sunday in a 34-3 rout of the Bills. Said Esiason: "Tom Brady is going to be MVP of the NFL, I don't care what Michael Vick says. … To do what Tom's doing and to do it the way the he has been doing it over the last few weeks — as a competitive player, watching him, I don't necessarily know that I've ever seen him this demonstrative, this competitive, and certainly now this streak is taking him to new levels."
Analyzing the teams with the best chance to knock off the Patriots in the playoffs, Esiason said: "Baltimore is going to be a formidable foe. That defense is good enough always to show up, and they can run the ball. Pittsburgh's going to be a tough out. When they get Troy Polamalu back, they're a...
Our list of the top 10 Boston sports stories of 2010 continues Monday with No. 5: The Randy Moss saga. The timing is appropriate, coming one day after the Patriots posted another offensive explosion in a 34-3 rout of the Bills while Moss went without a catch for the Titans.
Also, voting continues through Friday for WEEI.com's Boston Athlete of the Year. Two Patriots players continue to build on their lead following Sunday's impressive performance.
According to Peter King of NBC Sports and Sports Illustrated, President Barack Obama called Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie to congratulate and commend him for giving Michael Vick a second chance. Obama reportedly told Lurie that Vick's success gives other ex-prisoners hope for the future once they are rehabilitated. Meanwhile, Sunday's Vikings-Eagles game was postponed to Tuesday night due to the snowstorm that rocked the East Coast. That didn't sit well with everyone. One Minnesota columnist calls it an NFL-led conspiracy to bow to television interests and protect Vick.
Read more about those stories and others, plus check out a list of the top 10 most watched sports videos of 2010, at Monday's Morning Mashup.
After setting an NFL record for turnover-free football against the Bills, Tom Brady said he was most proud of the way the team handled adversity during a week filled with the flu and injury, ending with a 34-3 win. The victory clinched the team's eighth AFC East title in 10 years and assured New England the No. 1 seed and home field advantage throughout the upcoming AFC playoffs.
"It never gets old, I'll tell you that," Brady said. "We never get tired of winning. It's what we've been preparing for all offseason and training camp and to have a chance to do something pretty special today. It's a tough division, with the Bills twice in these conditions, the Jets, Miami, with the difficult time they give us. To come out victorious, obviously, everyone is very proud of it. The season is not over yet."
