Schefter on D&C: Can't underestimate Colts

Speaking to The Dennis & Callahan Show, ESPN's Adam Schefter offered a warning regarding the Patriots' upcoming opponent, the injury-riddled Indianapolis Colts. "I look at them as a team as long as they have that quarterback [Peyton Manning] they have a chance," Schefter said. "THey're not as good, I don't think, as some of the other Colts teams in recent years, but that's probably as much due to injury as anything else."

 

Schefter also discussed the lack of buzz surrounding the Colts meeting with the Patriots, which usually serves as one of the marquee games of the entire NFL season.

 

"I think it's got upstaged by a number of other factors in the league," he said. "I think the explosion of Michael Vick has drawn so much attention. The controversy surrounding Donovan McNabb has drawn so much attention. It seems like we live in a world where controversy sells better than interesting....

Mashup: Henry tries 'Moneyball' with soccer

Red Sox owner John Henry has hired Damien Comolli, a friend of A's general manager Billy Beane, to do a "Moneyball"-style analysis of his new soccer team, but there is skepticism that it will work with Liverpool FC. "I don't think there's a business anywhere in the world which is not using metrics, not as a template for success but as a tool," Beane insisted. "All sports are about numbers, and it's just a question of finding which ones correlate to a particular sport." Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Friday's Morning Mashup.

Horton opens up regarding Florida days
By: DJ Bean

In speaking with WEEI.com recently, Bruins forward Nathan Horton, acquired from the Panthers in an offseason trade, reflected on the negativity that surrounded him while he was in Florida. The third overall pick of the 2003 NHL draft, Horton developed a reputation as being an unmotivated player, and he couldn't shake it in his six seasons there.

 

"I tried not to take shifts off, but sometimes it was just hard to play [there]," Horton said. "It was tough, and obviously I'm not trying to take shifts off or anything, but people said that and it kind of stuck with me," Horton said. "I tried to get through it, but it wouldn't leave me."

 

Horton also spoke of his decision to re-sign with the Panthers 2007, noting he "pretty much" bought into the idea that things would get better despite the team's prolonged drought of missing the playoffs. He ended up taking a six-year, $24 million deal to...

Julien: Savard to join Bruins in practice soon
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien said following the team's 4-0 victory over the Panthers on Thursday night that Marc Savard, who has missed the beginning of the season with post-concussion syndrome, will join his teammates in practice soon. Savard has been limited to skating with other injured players.

 

"We hope that in the next few days to a week from now that he'll be able to join us," Julien said. "He's getting close, his conditioning is getting better, and I think after that he needs to go through some few other tests and then we can move forward with him. 

 

"His return certainly won't be before December, so he still has to go through a couple of things before he can start practicing and taking contact."

Lucic hat trick, Rask shutout lift B's
By: DJ Bean

On a night that was seemingly all about Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell, Milan Lucic stole the show with his second career hat trick in a 4-0 Bruins victory over the Panthers at TD Garden. 

 

Lucic and the first line provided the majority of the offense for the Bruins, beating Panthers goaltender Tomas Vokoun on a goal assisted by former Panthers first-round pick Nathan Horton. Lucic added another from virtually the same spot in the third and made it a hat trick seconds later, stuffing in a rebound to make it 3-0. With the game, Lucic now has a team-high 10 goals, having surpassed Horton (8) on the team leaderboard. Shawn Thornton added his fourth of the season at 16:04.

 

Tuukka Rask hadn't been getting consistent play in front of him to begin the season, so he made it a little easier on his teammates, shutting out the Panthers. It was his first victory of the season. Rask stopped all 41 shots he saw, frustrating a...
