Pats practice: Brady, McCourty return

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady and Devin McCourty returned to Patriots practice Thursday as the team practiced outside in slightly warmer conditions in preparation for Sunday night's game against Green Bay. 

 

Four players - all along the defensive line - were still missing as Ron Brace, Mike Wright, Myron Pryor and Gerard Warren were not spotted during the open portion of practice. The team practiced in sweats and shells for the second straight day. 

 

Wright is still dealing with the effects of a concussion while Myron Pryor has a nagging back injury. For more, visit the Patriots team page at weei.com/patriots and the blog It Is What It Is

Wilfork: 'Not even worried' about Pro Bowl

FOXBORO -- Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork said Thursday he isn't worried about his current third-place standing in AFC Pro Bowl balloting among defensive tackles. Voting ends Monday night following the Bears-Vikings game. 

 

"That's something I'm not even worried about right now," Wilfork said of his place behind Baltimore's Haloti Ngata and Pittsburgh's Casey Hampton. "I'm all about Green Bay this week. Whatever happens with that, happens. We've got a bigger task at hand this week than worrying about the Pro Bowl. I'll leave it where it's at."

 

One of Wilfork's biggest concerns and that of the defense is preparing for the possibility of facing one of two quarterbacks - either Aaron Rodgers or Matt Flynn - this Sunday night at Gillette Stadium. 

 

"It's tough, very tough," Wilfork said of preparing for two quarterbacks. "But they run the offense very...

Suggs: Brees 'better' than Brady

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs told the Baltimore Sun on Thursday that he feels that Drew Brees -- not Tom Brady or Peyton Manning -- is the best quarterback in the NFL.

 

“Well, in my eyes he’s better," said Suggs when asked if facing Brees is similar to facing Brady or Manning. "Maybe it could be my personal vendetta against the other guys, but he’s definitely one of the premier quarterbacks in this league, and he’s got the numbers to prove it. And not only that, he’s got the hardware to prove it.”

 

Brady and Suggs had an on-field shouting match in the fourth quarter of the Patriots overtime win over the Ravens on October 17. Suggs told the media after that game that Brady "better hope he don't see us again."

McHale: Garnett 'has a lot left'

Former Celtics great and current TNT analyst Kevin McHale was a guest on the Dennis and Callahan show Thursday morning. McHale was first asked about New York Knicks and Amare Stoudemire. The Celtics defeated the Knicks in a 118-116 thriller on Wednesday night despite 39 points and 10 rebounds from Stoudemire, who has played at an MVP level so far this season. McHale admits some surprise at how well Stoudemire has fit in with the Knicks.

 

"I thought Amare was half him, half Steve Nash," said McHale. "I thought the style they played in Phoenix was conducive to him looking really good. But he's really taken the bull by the horns here in New York. Very impressive … his jump shot has really improved and he's attacking the glass."

 

As for the now 20-4 Celtics -- winners of 11 straight games -- McHale feels that they are one of two teams in the NBA that have to be looked at as the current favorites for...

Werner: Sox wanted to 'blow up that bridge'

Speaking on the Dennis & Callahan Show, Red Sox chairman Tom Werner addressed the prediction he made back on Nov. 17 (click here to hear the interview on The Big Show) that the Sox were going to both sign a big-name free-agent, and make a substantial trade. Since then, of course, the team dealt for first baseman Adrian Gonzalez while also inking outfielder Carl Crawford to seven-year pact.
