Bill Simmons on D&C: Celtics will win East

Appearing on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday, ESPN's Bill Simmons predicted that the Celtics will prevail in the Eastern Conference, citing a deeper bench than Miami and an advantage in the matchups against Orlando. Regarding the Heat, Simmons remains skeptical heading into Tuesday's night season-opener at TD Garden.

 

"I think there's a much better chance that it's dicey than everything goes fantastic," Simmons said of the Heat.

 

Regarding the construct of this season's Celtics team, Simmons points to the C's depth as being a big difference from last season. He specifically cited the presence of Delonte West, and how he could protect the C's if something happened to starting point guard Rajon Rondo.

 

"I do think the one difference between last year's team and this year's team is they have a bench," he said, proceeding to then go on to talk about West. "I've got to say, I...

Brady on D&C: 'Been called a lot worse'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning for his weekly interview, and he talked about Sunday's win over the Chargers, the upcoming game against Randy Moss and the Vikings, and his views on the Celtics' chances on the day of their season-opener.

 

Vikings coach Brad Childress on Monday called the Patriots one of the all-time great signal-stealers, referencing a Patriots-Vikings game in 2006. Responded Brady: "We've been called a lot worse than that. … That's come and gone. That's been not a part of football here for a long time, and we've still won a lot of games. In '07, they changed the rule and so forth. I don't buy a whole lot into that. The team that's going to win this weekend is the team that plays better. I...

Mashup: Sterger's life 'turned upside-down'

The manager for Jenn Sterger spoke to the New York Daily News on Monday and said the Jets game-day hostess' life "has been turned upside-down" due to the Brett Favre allegations. Phil Reese said there has been "no communication" with representatives for Favre about a settlement, and he said Sterger is "leaning toward" talking to NFL investigators.

 

"She's having a really tough time dealing with this," Reese said. "She's lost nine pounds. She was already in model shape before, so it's not good if those nine pounds just go missing. She's doing her best to try to stay focused on work and being a 26-year-old woman. But at the same time, it's obviously very difficult when there's paparazzi camped outside your home and TMZ is calling your house."

Sturm, Savard skate at Bruins practice
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Marco Sturm could be spotted doing some light skating and shooting around Ristuccia Arena as he works to return from a torn ACL and MCL suffered during last years' playoff series. As teammates joined him on the ice, so too did Marc Savard, who has been out since the beginning of training camp with symptoms of post-concussion syndrome.

 

Sturm, who led the Bruins in scoring last year, wasn't getting in the hardest of workouts, doing more of this-and-that than anything substantial, but his return to the ice is undoubtedly a good sign for the Bruins as they look to overcome the injuries of Sturm, Savard, and Johnny Boychuk.

Childress: Pats 'all-time great signal stealers'

FOXBORO — Vikings coach Brad Childress took a shot at New England on Monday, saying the Patriots were “some of the all-time great signal stealers” and referencing a 2006 game played between New England and Minnesota as proof.

Childress’ statement was in response to a question about playing time for rookie defensive back Chris Cook against a New England passing attack led by Tom Brady, and whether or not the Patriots might try to exploit a matchup involving the youngster. The Vikings coach said New England would “probably” operate “by coverage,” and then referenced a 2006 Monday Night Football game in which the Patriots crushed the Vikings in the Metrodome, 31-7.

In that game, Brady was masterful, going 29-for-43 for 372 yards and four touchdowns. And Childress hinted that in that contest — played before communication systems were installed in the helmets of defensive players...
