Ference: Kelly would've taken worse CBA
By: DJ Bean

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference, who admitted on Dennis & Callahan to helping "get rid of" former NHLPA executive director Paul Kelly, said after an informal skate Monday at Boston University that he doesn't believe Kelly could have gotten the players the deal that current NHLPA head Donald Fehr netted them this weekend. 

"No," Ference said, straight-faced. "We'd be playing, I'm sure. I'm sure we wouldn't have missed as much hockey and the league would have been salivating. That's the blunt answer."

Ference, who was present for the final negotiations that led to a new collective bargaining agreement being reached, called Fehr "essential" and the "foundation of our entire union." He said that Fehr's presence as executive director strengthened the union where he felt it was weaker in the past, including when Bob Goodenow led them through the 2004-05 lockout.

Mankins on M&M: No looking past Texans

Patriots offensive lineman Logan Mankins, joining Mut & Merloni on Monday morning, talked about the team's preparations for the Texans, who will be in Foxboro for Sunday's AFC playoff game.

The Patriots blew out the Texans, 42-14, on Dec. 10, but it's been widely discussed that two years ago the Patriots routed the Jets in the regular season only to be upset by New York in the playoffs.

"It's always hard to compare different years," Mankins said. "That's a learning experience for us to look back and see that we beat a team and then in the playoffs got beaten by them. Hopefully we can change that this time. We're definitely not taking this team lightly. We know they're very good."

Mankins acknowledged that some people will look past Texans, but he said those people won't be in the Patriots training facility.

"Human nature makes me want to think that way, but if you've been around long enough and played...

Ference on D&C: 'It was all give' by players

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference, who was in the negotiating room in New York when the lockout was settled Sunday, joined Dennis & Callahan on Monday morning to talk about the long-awaited end to the work stoppage.

Ference said he's been going through a range of emotions since the deal was reached.

Said Ference: "First, exhausted for sure. Last night's sleep didn't quite catch me up from this past week from New York City. But definitely relieved. In many ways, happy to be back playing, happy that the fans can actually come back and watch some hockey and can stop talking about boardroom chatter. And relieved also, because I saw how close it came I think from both sides to pulling the plug on the season. For that not to happen makes me relieved, because I can't possibly imagine what another lost year would have done to our sport."

Ference, who tweeted the news of the deal right after it happened, said the final agreement came...

Esiason on D&C: Pats, Broncos big favorites

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on Dennis & Callahan on Monday morning to discuss the playoffs.

Esiason predicted the two NFC road teams (Packers and Seahawks) would win this weekend, with the Patriots and Broncos advancing to the AFC championship game.

"The home teams are going to hold serve this week in the AFC," he said. "I never want to take anything for granted, especially when it comes against playing teams twice in the same season and so close to each other. The good news for the Patriots is they have this team at home, Houston. Matt Schaub only completed I think 29 passes on Saturday. Nineteen points is not going to get it done on the road in New England. They're going to have to be so much better than they were against the Bengals."

Added Esiason: "I'm not a big buyer for Joe Flacco against Peyton Manning. I'm not a big buyer for Joe Flacco against Tom Brady. I'm...

Brady on D&C: 'I just try to be respectful'

With the Patriots preparing to meet the Texans on Sunday in the AFC playoffs, quarterback Tom Brady joined Dennis & Callahan on Monday morning for his weekly interview and talked about his team's matchup as well as other news from around the league.

Brady said he watched all four playoff games over the weekend. Following the Seahawks' victory over Washington on Sunday, Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman -- who trash-talked Brady following their game in October -- received a smack in the face from Washington offensive lineman Trent Williams.

"I couldn't do that," Brady said. "Trent Williams is a lot bigger than I am, probably a lot more intimidating."

Brady avoided criticizing Sherman, but he said it's his preference to be classy after games.

"Everyone reacts differently," he said. "I have my own style. I just try to be respectful to the opponents, because I have a lot of respect for the opponents...
