Taylor on D&H: Pats excited for Green-Ellis

Running back Fred Taylor joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning for his weekly appearance on WEEI's Patriots Friday.

 

Taylor said that despite missing much of the season with injuries, he has no problem with coaches chewing him out along with the players in the film room in preparation for the playoffs. "I'm not perfect by any means," he said. "I need to make sure I'm on top of everything, trying to continue to improve myself. Constructive criticism is great. You just listen, you take heed to it, and you try to get better from it."

 

BenJarvus Green-Ellis reached 1,000 yards rushing on the season in Sunday's regular-season finale, and the team was visibly excited for the young back. "It meant a lot to whole lot of people," Taylor said. "Everybody understands Benny. He's a non-nonsense, straightforward young guy with an old soul who works extremely hard. He deserves everything...

Julien swaps Ryder in for Horton on top line
By: DJ Bean

After Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Wild, Claude Julien did a bit of tinkering with the lines in practice on Friday. According to multiple reports out of Wilmington, here is how the lines looked:

 

Lucic-Savard-Ryder 

Recchi-Seguin-Bergeron

Wheeler-Krejci-Horton

Marchand-Campbell-Thornton-(Paille)

 

With Michael Ryder and Nathan Horton essentially switching spots, the rest of the lines seem unchanged. Seguin has centered the second line for the last two games.

Mayo on D&H: Patriots stay humble

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo checked in with the Dale & Holley show Friday morning as part of WEEI's Patriots Friday.

 

Asked if Bill Belichick has been keeping the team grounded by hammering the players in the film room," Mayo said: "Every single day. We went over every bad play that we've had in the last couple of weeks, and there have been quite a few."

 

Mayo said part of the team philosophy is to limit the involvement with the media. "I think coach Belichick and the rest of the staff do an excellent job keeping us humble and not paying attention to any media," he said. "Every week, we'll get — I don't want to say 'bashed,' but he's making sure our heads are in the right place and still preparing well like we're playing tough teams, which we are in the playoffs."

 

Asked if he will be watching playoff action this weekend, Mayo replied: "I will,...

Schefter on D&C: Jets' Ryan has 'no filter'

Adam Schefter of ESPN made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning as part of WEEI's Patriots Friday.

 

Schefter talked about coaching moves around the league. He said the Dolphins never made an offer to Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh before apparently deciding to retain Tony Sparano. Schefter said Harbaugh has lost his leverage and now appears likely to return to the Cardinal.

 

As for the other two high-profile NFL coaching candidates, Schefter said the Dolphins "kicked the tires" on Bill Cowher and Jon Gruden, but: "I fully except Bill Cowher to be back in the [television] booth, and I feel confident that will be the case with Gruden as well."

 

Jets coach Rex Ryan took a shot at Tom Brady in his press conference Thursday. Said Schefter: "I think Rex just talks. I just think he doesn't care. There's no filter. He's just going to go up and say what he...

Mashup: Barkley denies ticket accusation

TNT studio analyst Charles Barkley was in rare form Thursday night during halftime of the network's broadcast of the Thunder-Mavericks game. The NBA legend and Auburn alumnus denied a rumor that he had given Lakers tickets to Auburn quarterback Cam Newton — a rumor started after a reporter's tweet was misconstrued — but then joked that he would have done more for Newton had he been asked.

 

Said Barkley: "I did not get him tickets, I have never met Cam Newton, but if Cam Newton had called me I would have put him in the Laker locker room if he wanted to go."

 

Barkley also weighed in on a recent comment from Fox News' Tucker Carlson that Eagles quarterback Michael Vick should have been "executed" for his role in killing dogs. Barkley called Carlson an "idiot," and added that Carlson is "a nobody" who was fired by Turner Broadcasting "because he sucked."
