Wilfork on D&H: I'll miss Ty on the field
By: Jay Asser

Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork joined the Dale & Holley show on Monday morning to talk about the Ty Warren injury, voluntary workouts and training camp.

 

"That's a personal friend of mine on and off the field," Wilfork said of Warren. "It's just sad to hear something like that, sidelined for the season. I talked with him afterwards and everything and he's in high spirits. It's something he said he needs to take care of and I support him 100 percent. As far as the player, that's a guy I will miss out there on the field with me but I think the guys that stepped in are doing a good job. I mean we've been working every day, everybody has been doing their thing and hopefully we can get better as a team."

 

Wilfork also touched on heading to Atlanta and facing Falcons players in dual practices, and the attitude he'll have.

 

"I won't help him up," Wilfork...

Caserio: Holt IR was in 'best interest of club'

FOXBORO -- The decision to place veteran wide receiver Torry Holt on season-ending injured reserve with a reported knee injury was made "in the best interest of the club," Patriots personnel director Nick Caserio said on Monday morning. 

 

"I think the decision with Torry, we just felt that was the best thing for the club at this point in time," Caserio said. "Torry came in, he worked hard, he did everything we've asked him to do, a total professional. He's been a really good player and had a really productive career but in the end, we have to make decisions that we feel are best for the club so that's what we did.

 

"He may have missed a few days there at the end so we just went with the decision that we felt was best."

 

The team brought back receiver Buddy Farnham to take Holt's place and also signed rookie offensive lineman Brian Simmons on Sunday to the roster....

Faxon on D&C: 'Fault Dustin Johnson'
By: Jay Asser

PGA Tour player and golf analyst Brad Faxon joined the Dennis & Callahan show on Monday morning to recap the unusual finish to the PGA Championship and Tiger Woods' chances of making the Ryder Cup team. Regarding Dustin Johnson's penalty for grounding his club in a bunker, Faxon admitted it was more memorable than Martin Kaymer winning the tournament. "I can't remember anything like this," he said. "With that, nobody is going to remember the tournament winner. Do you guys remember who won?"

 

Despite Johnson suffering a technicality, Faxon said that he had no one to blame but himself. "It was very clear to the PGA of America that this was going to be an issue, so they put notifications everywhere," he said. "They were in lockers, they were in registrations, they were on the first tee, they were on the bathroom doors, they were on mirrors, they were everywhere. So to use the excuse that...

Brady on D&C: Finger injury 'nothing'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his first weekly appearance of the season on the Dennis & Callahan show early Monday morning. Regarding the finger he injured during Thursday night's preseason opener against the Saints, Brady played down its severity. "I hit a helmet in the game," he said. "It's nothing. It's one of those things that happens."

 

Looking at the prospects for the 2010 Patriots, Brady said it's too early to know anything. "There's a lot of unknowns at this point," he said. "There's a lot that you learn over the course of the season." Brady said the offense needs to show more consistency this season. "We're going to need to be a very good offense this year," he said. "We're going to need to score a lot of points. Were going to need to be good and effective in the red area. I think we can be."

 

Asked if he's concerned that the Patriots did not...

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
