Dilfer: Brady will 'unleash hell' on Jets

ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer spoke to the media on a conference call Thursday and offered his thoughts on how Tom Brady will handle criticism from the Jets this week.

 

”I think he’s going to unleash hell on them,” Dilfer responded. ”I do. Early in the week, I felt like the Jets had a chance in this game. I looked for every reason why this thing could be an epic battle. That the Jets could redeem themselves from the 45-3 [game last month]. Then I started to look at more film, and realized the Patriots are just smarter than everyone else.

 

”And then I look at how they’re handling [the trash talk], and yeah, I do think it festers in a good way. They have the ability to use all this stuff, and hold it inside, and use it to their advantage come game time. I don’t see how this strategy works against the Patriots that the Jets are using. I can see it working against somebody else...

MacMullan on D&H: Jets exploit emotions

Veteran sports writer Jackie MacMullan made her weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Thursday to talk about the news of the day. MacMullan opened by discussing the inflammatory comments from Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie toward Tom Brady and questioned how a player with his checkered past could be so willing to question another man's class.

 

MacMullan said it's curious that Cormartie feels so comfortable opening his mouth, "especially when you're like this deadbeat dad that has the worst reputation in the league — you have to get an advance from your team to pay off your child support. It's not like we're talking about a paragon of virtue there. It's very interesting, isn't it?"

 

MacMullan also questioned Cromartie's play in the Jets defensive backfield. "He hasn't had a great year either, I don't think," she said. "I know on reputation he's been a shutdown corner, but not...

Pats practice: Pryor only absent player

FOXBORO -- The Patriots nearly had perfect attendance at practice on Thursday as the team continued on-field preparations for the Jets Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. Only defensive lineman Myron Pryor (back injury) was missing from the workout in sweats and shells on the lower practice field. The field had been cleared following Wednesday's blizzard that hit New England. 

 

Rookie linebacker Jermaine Cunningham has returned after dealing with a calf injury. With the return of Cunningham from injury and fellow rookie Brandon Spikes from an NFL-mandated suspension for violation of the league's substance abuse policy, the Patriots have their full compliment of linebackers in place.

Thomas to start, Lucic out for B's
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Milan Lucic will not be in the lineup when the Bruins face the Flyers Thursday night at TD Garden. It will be the second straight game the 22-year-old has missed with an undisclosed injury. 

 

"[He's feeling] better," coach Claude Julien said after the team's morning skate, which Lucic was not on the ice for. "Obviously he won't be in tonight, but he's getting better."

 

Julien likened Lucic's situation to that of Nathan Horton, who missed a pair of games with an undisclosed injury prior to returning in Tuesday's 6-0 victory over the Senators. 

 

"[He's] day-to-day," Julien said. "It's a lot like Horton. He's dealing with the same kind of situation as far as day-to-day is concerned."

 

Lucic leads the Bruins with 16 goals this season. 

 

While Lucic wasn't on the ice for the morning skate, defenseman...

Troy Brown: Cromartie 'a liability' for Jets

Former Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown checked in with the Dale & Holley show Thursday morning and weighed in on the controversy regarding the Jets' trash-talking leading up to Sunday's AFC semifinal game in Foxboro.

 

Brown said comments from players such as Antonio Cromartie criticizing Tom Brady are likely to come back to haunt the Jets. "I guess the whole thing now is about how un-classy and unprofessional Tom Brady is," Brown said. "I feed off of that. I'm sure the guys around [Brady] feed off of it, especially this young football team. So, I don't know what the whole big deal is. Like I said a couple of minutes ago, it's football. You knock people's head off for a living. It's not golf. I know you make us tuck our shirts in and keep our socks pulled up. But it's still football at the end of the day. So, this whole thing about being un-classy and unprofessional is just ridiculous."

 

Brown, who...
