King on D&H: Goodell never went back to BB

During his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday morning, Sports Illustrated's Peter King talked about the profile piece he did on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell this week and the comments Goodell made about feeling "deceived" when Bill Belichick was not forthcoming with the press about the Patriots' role in Spygate.

 

King was asked why Goodell did not go back to Belichick and tell him his performance before the media was not what the commissioner expected.

 

Said King: “I asked him, I said, ‘Did you go back to him and did you ever contact him about it?’ And he said, ‘No.” And I think his whole thing was, at that point — and I’m interpreting here — his whole thing was at that point, the wounds are wide and the wounds are ugly. To exacerbate the wounds at this point is not something I want to do.

 

“Now, I’ve heard from...

Kraft: Pats lacked 'good game plan' vs. Jets

Patriots owner Robert Kraft, in remarks to reporters in Dallas, suggested that the Patriots were missing "a good game plan" in their season-ending loss to the Jets in the division round of the playoffs. He also expressed frustration with the interception that QB Tom Brady threw on a screen pass that killed the momentum of the first Patriots drive, as well as other areas in which his team failed to execute against its divisional rival.

 

"I don’t know, a good game plan,” Kraft told reporters in response to a question about what the Patriots were missing that day. "I mean, you have to hand it to the Jets. They came in and they did a good job. And actually, if you think about it, we drove down the field those first two drives. Tommy was unbelievable. He had (11) games without an interception and then threw that lazy interception. They go down and they miss the field goal and then we come drive right down again, and...

Paille: Hit was shoulder-to-shoulder
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- After learning Friday morning that he had been suspended for four games following his blindside hit on Stars forward Raymond Sawada, Bruins forward Daniel Paille expressed hope that the player is alright but defended the hit. 

 

"It was a fast-paced play. I just recognized that Sawata was going on a breakaway, and I just went over to backcheck and get the puck, but he cut back to the middle," Paille said following Bruins' practice Friday. "If you look the play, I'm ahead of him when I hit him, and I felt that I hit his shoulder at that moment. Looking at the replay I felt that he kind of turned towards me so I wouldn't my check. I felt that I hit him in the the shoulder at first." 

 

Rule 48, implemented following Matt Cooke's blindside hit on Bruins center Marc Savard last March, states that "a lateral or blindside hit to an opponent where the head is targeted and/or the...

King on D&H: Steelers win high-scoring game

Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday morning from the Steelers' Super Bowl practice facility in Forth Worth, Texas.

 

Dallas is being hit by its worth winter weather in two decades, and the city is not prepared for the snow and ice that have restricted road use. "It's been stunning this week to see the weather take over and sort of dominate the landscape, and a guy as powerful as [Cowboys] owner Jerry Jones basically be powerless to do anything about it," King said.

 

King has predicted a Steelers victory, and he said Thursday's practice did nothing to change his mind. Said King: "Ben Roethlisberger was OK on Wednesday, you know, missed a bunch of throws. But yesterday, he had about as good a practice … That was as impressive a practice performance as I've seen, against the Steelers scout team. What does it mean? Probably nothing...
