Welker: 'I'm not really big into' trash talk

FOXBORO -- In a week that has featured the trash-talking episodes between Kevin Garnett and Charlie Villanueva of the Pistons and Andrew Bogut of the Bucks, Patriots receiver said Friday he would much prefer letting his play on the field do the talking.

 

"For me, I feel like there's a line," Welker said Friday. "I'm not really big into it unless it's one of those deals where you do get into the heat of battle but it's not really one of my fortes. There are things said. I think it just depends on the player and the guy out there. Some guys like to do it, some don't. You can get caught up in the emotion of the game and probably say some things you wish you had back. 

 

Ray Allen of the Celtics said he cringes when he hears NFL players having a microphone on them during games and doesn't want to see the same thing in the NBA. Welker said Friday he can relate after wearing a microphone during a Patriots...

Pryor, Guyton fined $7,500 for Favre hits

FOXBORO -- The NFL fined Patriots defensive lineman Myron Pryor $7,500 for his hit on Brett Favre, resulting in eight stitches under the quarterback's helmet. 

 

There was no penalty called for the hit, which resulted in Favre being knocked out from the game with seven minutes left in the fourth quarter. Favre did not return but did not sustain a concussion, as he passed tests performed Sunday night. Meanwhile, Gary Guyton was also fined $7,500 and penalized 15 yards for his hit on Favre late in the first quarter that helped set up Minnesota's first touchdown.

King on D&H: Only Belichick can handle Moss

Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports football insider Peter King made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday. In the current issue of Sports Illustrated, King named Tom Brady his midseason MVP but listed Peyton Manning as his All-Pro quarterback.

 

Said King: "To me, I think it's arguable that Peyton Manning has played better in the first half of the season but that Tom Brady has been more valuable to the best team in football in the first half of the season. … I just think that Manning has been absolutely terrific, as usual, and has had a great passing season and a great season orchestrating what he's had to do in Indianapolis with a new offensive coordinator. Whereas Brady, I think his value has rarely if ever been higher to the Patriots, because he's gotten five new receivers up to speed while having the whole [Randy] Moss thing go haywire. I realize it's a very subjective thing. At the end of the day, I sort of...

Belichick on Mankins: 'Has a ways to go'

FOXBORO -- Logan Mankins participated in his third straight practice on Friday as he continues to get back in playing shape. Patriots coach Bill Belichick did not make any commitment one way or the other as to his availability on Sunday in Cleveland and said the former Pro Bowl left guard is making progress. 

 

"[Mankins] looks alight," Belichick said. "I think he has a ways to go, as you would expect, but he looks like he's in pretty good condition. Logan is a smart guy and he works hard so that's never really an issue. He just has to get better at things he hasn't done in a while."

 

Mankins reported on Tuesday after missing the first seven games in a contract dispute with the team. He signed a tender that was originally worth $3.268 million, but reduced to $1.45 million because of time missed.
