Pedroia: 'I was very vocal in the meeting'

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said on The Big Show that he was one of the more vocal players in the now infamous team meeting that took place in late July, but that he didn't place the blame on manager Bobby Valentine, as was reported in a Yahoo! story.

"The bottom line is, I was very vocal in the meeting. I'm one of the leaders on the team, but when I spoke I didn't say anything bad about Bobby whatsoever," Pedroia said. "That guy's report in a sense is right. I was very vocal. Somebody asked me why I thought we were losing games and why we weren't playing well and I told the truth and it had nothing do with our manager. Bobby's been great.

"He's been great with me. I had one incident with Bobby. That was early in the year and I went and talked to him. Me and Bobby have been awesome. I think the perception is that I was so close with Tito [Francona] that it didn't matter who was managing the next season, they figured...

Ryans: Eagles wanted to face Brady

FOXBORO -- The Patriots did not play 27 of their roster players on Monday night in a 27-17 preseason loss to the Eagles at Gillette Stadium. The only first-team skill player on offense that played was Stevan Ridley but he didn't play until the second half as Tom Brady, Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez and Jabar Gaffney all got the night off. 

Instead, the Patriots started quarterback Ryan Mallett, who finished 10-of-20 for 105 yards and a touchdown. Brian Hoyer played the second and fourth quarters and completed just 5-of-17 passes for 55 yards and no scores. 

"You want to face their best guys," said Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans. "That's what we prepared for. We prepared for those guys this week and that's something we were looking forward to, facing those guys but it's out of our control. We can't control it, and no need to worry about it. There's nothing we can do about it. We just have to play...

Cunningham on Vick hit: 'That's just football'

FOXBORO -- Patriots edge rusher Jermaine Cunningham knocked out Michael Vick with one hellacious hit to the ribs in the first quarter of Monday night's preseason game against the Eagles. The hit was so hard that Vick didn't play another snap and headed immediately to the locker room for x-Rays, which came back negative. 

"It's football," Cunningham said. "Hits like that happen all the time."

Vick was knocked out of action last year with a non-displaced fracture in the ribs after a hit midway through the season in a home loss to the Cardinals in Philadelphia. 

Cunningham appears bigger this season, as he is playing the outside linebacker spot and fighting for a roster spot on the team. 

"It's football," Cunningham repeated. "It felt good to be out there playing football. It's still early in the year. We still have a couple of preseason games left. We just have to keep building. ...
