Wilfork on D&H: 'The game has changed'

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork called in to the Dale & Holley show for his weekly appearance on Patriots Monday. Wilfork said he's happy to leave San Diego with a win, no matter how ugly Sunday's 23-20 victory over the Chargers was.

 

"A lot of people look into it deeper than others," he said. "I'm one of the guys that just basically [says], 'A win is a win.' You take from that win things that happened in that game. In this game, we probably had a chance to close the door early, but we didn't. We allowed them to stay in the game. But at the end of the day, we got the 'W.' We made the plays that counted."

 

Added Wilfork: "It really wasn't a smart play by those guys jumping offsides on the field goal to push it back 5 more extra yards, to turn it into a 50-yard field goal. Who knows? That 5 extra yards could have made the difference for them. We cover situations in practice a...

Boychuk on forearm injury: 'It sucks'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk was sporting a splint on his left forearm as he adressed the media during Bruins' practice at Ristuccia Arena on Monday. The defenseman is expecting to get a cast shortly after learning on Sunday that he will be out for approximately four weeks with a fractured bone in his left forearm.

 

"It sucks, but that's the way it has to be," Boychuk said of the prognosis. He was slashed in the first period of Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers by Brandon Dubinsky. He left the ice following the play but returned to finish the period before sitting the rest of the game.

 

"I just tried to suck it up," Boychuk said. "I thought it was just a bruise or something like that on the wrist. I just put some tape on it and tried to put some tape on it and tried to finish the period."

Esiason on D&C: 'Bill just being Bill'

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about the Patriots' 23-20 victory over the Chargers. The hot topic from the game is Bill Belichick's decision to have the Patriots go for it on fourth-and-1 from midfield.

 

"I guess it was Bill just being Bill, and he can take chances like that," Esiason said, adding: "It's not the decision I would have made. I would have punted the ball and I would have said, 'Defense, go stop them.' "

 

Esiason said BenJarvus Green-Ellis had a chance to alter the play and get the first down. "I think when Benny goes back and looks at that play, he's going to see that there was a little cutback lane back behind the center," Esiason said. "Benny sometimes is a little robotic. He gets the ball and he goes straight ahead and he's a hard runner and nobody ever wants to take away his...
