Wilfork: 'Don't care' about Bruschi, Harrison

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, in his weekly appearance on The Big Show, acknowledged that the 24-20 loss to the Giants on Sunday "really hurts." In particular, he said, the Patriots defense was disappointed by the fact that it executed well for most of the day before suffering a breakdown on the final drive of the game, when the Giants marched into the end zone in the final minute for a win.

Even so, Wilfork said that meaningful progress for the defense was apparent.

"There are some things we’re doing very, very well, and we have to continue to build on," said Wilfork. "We have to move forward. We had a great week of preparation. We practiced well. So we can’t get discouraged about this game."

Wilfork said that the Patriots would not be discouraged by criticism from outside the locker room. He suggested that members of New England's defense did not care about comments from former...

Peverley out, Rask to start vs. Islanders
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien said following Monday's morning skate that Rich Peverley will not play against the Islanders at TD Garden. Peverley was not on the ice for the morning skate and has missed the team's last three practices despite playing Saturday against the Maple Leafs.

Julien said that the injury Peverley is dealing with is minor, though he did not disclose any details. With Peverley out, Benoit Pouliot will make his return to the lineup after missing the last three games. 

Julien also said that Tuukka Rask will be in net for the B's against the Islanders. The 24-year-old has lost all three of his starts, with B's giving him only three goals of support all season. 

"For the most part, we've failed in front of him," Julien said. "We've failed in front of him."

Esiason on D&C: Brady can't trust Ochocinco

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to break down the Patriots' 24-20 loss to the Giants on Sunday. Esiason provided his insight into why the Patriots offense was held to 20 or less points for the third consecutive week and why the offense was unable to score in the first half for the first time since Dec. 12, 2006.

"Opposing teams now know how to stop Tom Brady," Esiason said. "He was harassed, he threw interceptions, he fumbled. The Giants defense seemed like they were swarming all over the place, especially in the first half. And then when you watch the performance last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, you say the same thing. He was harassed. He was beat up."

Esiason attributed the pressure on Brady to the Giants defensive line and said the man coverage down the field prevented the Patriots from making big plays. Just one week after...

Brady on D&C: 'Going to keep fighting'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to dissect Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Giants in which the potent New England offense was shut out for the first half.

"Obviously, I wish I would have completed more passes," Brady said. "There were plays out there that I wish I could have hit. Those are the ones that I think about. They made a lot of plays. It's a good defense. We're going to keep fighting on. I think that's really what we've done to this point this season, and there's a long way to go. But we've got to get back to winning. We've got to get back to making more good plays than bad plays."

With the Patriots on a two-game losing streak and losing a regular-season game at home for the first time in five years, Brady was asked if teams have come up with a blueprint to stop the Pats.

"Every week we go in and we have a pretty good idea of what they're...

Mashup: Colts' Polian lashes out at 'rats'

Cheer up, Patriots fans. As rough as the last two weeks have been, at least your team is far better off than the once-proud Colts. Not only did Indianapolis fall to 0-9 with Sunday's 31-7 loss to the Falcons, team vice chairman Bill Polian went on a short postgame rant about those who are critical of his club. It's speculated that Polian was angered by a Sunday story from Indianapolis Star writer Bob Kravitz that quoted unnamed former Colts employees as questioning the competence of general manager Chris Polian, who happens to be Bill's son. "Some people are just rats who lie about people," Polian said, adding that it's the team's job to "throw the rats in the sewer."

Responded Kravitz on Twitter: Just head about Polian's postgame -- dunno if he was referring to me as a rat or my sources -- or both -- i've been called worse.
