Belichick: Perfect attendance despite storm

FOXBORO -- The powerful blizzard that crippled New England on Wednesday didn't keep the Patriots from making practice on Wednesday. As a matter of fact, every single player was on hand, according to coach Bill Belichick. 

 

"They're all here," Belichick said. "We have some experienced northeastern drivers, here."

 

Many players, coaches and staff stayed at the Renaissance Hotel next to Gillette Stadium to avoid having to commute to the Foxboro through the storm. Last year, linebackers Adalius Thomas, Gary Guyton and Derrick Burgess were late for a Wednesday morning meeting in December because of hazardous driving conditions. They reported to work and were subsequently sent home for not taking the weather into consideration and being tardy.

Belichick: Cromartie barbs 'out of our control'

FOXBORO -- Not surpisingly, Bill Belichick did not not give the Jets any ammunition Wednesday morning when asked to respond to the inflammatory remarks of defensive back Antonio Cromartie and defensive lineman Shaun Ellis. On Tuesday, Ellis said Tom Brady taunted the Jets sideline after a score while Cromartie said that Brady was "an ass----" and followed up by adding "[expletive] him." 

 

"That's all out of our control," Belichick said tersely. "Our job is to get ready to play."

 

Belichick did admit that he felt there was a line that could be crossed when taking a shot at an opposing player like the Jets did with Brady on Tuesday. "I'm sure there is," Belichick said. "I don't know what it is. My mind is on the New York Jets on Sunday at 4:30. That's what in my mind right now."

Brady: 'I've been called worse'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady shrugged Wednesday when he was informed of the comments from Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie.

On Tuesday, Cromartie called Brady an “ass----” and added, “[Expletive] him.”

“I’ve been called worse. I’m sure there’s a long list of people who feel the same,” said Brady, who said that Cromartie is a good player.

“Not everybody has great things to say about our team,” he added. “That’s the way it’s always been.”

Jets coach Rex Ryan also took issue with some of Brady’s body language early in the week, hinting that he taunts and points at opponents after a big play. Cromartie and Shaun Ellis piled on Tuesday.

“He was taunting us,” Ellis said of Brady, He was. ... It wasn’t too much. It’s just his body language and things like that. When they scored, he...

Rex: Patriots 'saying a lot worse about me'

Jets coach Rex Ryan participated in a conference call with Patriots media members Wednesday and defended cornerback Antonio Cromartie for his inflammatory comments about Tom Brady.

 

"In this country, you're allowed to have opinions," Ryan said, adding: "We let our guys speak. We don't tell them what to say and what not to say."

 

Added Ryan: "Am I going to punish Cromartie for saying something or whatever? No. ... I know one thing: We respect New England, but we don't fear them."

 

Ryan then insisted the Patriots do their own talking, but it just doesn't make it out of Gillette Stadium. "Trust me, they're saying a lot worse about me and others here," he said. "Maybe it just wasn't printed."

Edwards on D&C: Cromartie talk bad for NFL

ESPN analyst and former Jets coach Herm Edwards joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday to talk about Sunday's Patriots-Jets playoff game.

 

Edwards said the key for the Jets will be to control the ball and keep it out of Tom Brady's hands. "They've been able to run the football, that will help you some," he said of the Jets offense. "[Mark] Sanchez is going to have to make some plays throwing the football, no doubt about that. But I think if you can limit New England's possessions, that's going to be critical."

 

Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie lashed out at Tom Brady on Tuesday, saying "[Expletive him]" and calling him an "ass----" for what Cromartie perceived as disrespect of the Jets. Edwards said if he were the coach, he would...
