Brady on D&C: 'Never in a rhythm'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to analyze Sunday's 25-17 loss to the Steelers.

"We were never in a rhythm," Brady said. "But that takes running good plays. If we don't convert on third down -- we had three plays in the first quarter of the game. You're not going to do anything running three plays. That's our fault for not converting a third down. We had an opportunity to complement our defense and match a score by them, and we didn't do it.

"The second drive of the game we were moving the ball decently. And then we squandered away a decent opportunity on the plus side of the field and didn't get anything out of that. Then we got the touchdown. They we had a two-minute drive where we kicked a field goal.

"We were just not playing our style of football. We played against a team that is a very physical team, that's a tough team that plays well...

Cardinals' La Russa announces retirement

Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, coming of his second World Series title in St. Louis, announced Monday that he plans to retire. La Russa is a four-time Manager of the Year who won six pennants (three with the A's and three with the Cardinals) and three World Series (A's in 1989, Cardinals in 2006 and 2011).

The 67-year-old is third all-time in major league victories (2,728) and is the winningest manager in Cardinals history (1,408 wins). He also managed the White Sox.

With La Russa's contract expiring, there had been some speculation that the Red Sox might make a run at the 33-year veteran bench boss. However, La Russa's Boston-based agent, Jack Sands, told Dennis & Callahan recently that he expected his client would remain in the National League in 2012.

“Tony loves Boston...

Mashup: Suspended Carcillo yaps about NHL

Dan Carcillo, in his first season with the Blackhawks after proudly serving as an instigator with the Flyers, was suspended two games by the league for a check from behind on Hurricanes defenseman Joni Pitkanen on Friday night. Rob Blake, from the NHL's Department of Player Safety, explained that Carcillo was suspended in part because "he has been fined and suspended multiple times in his NHL career."

Responded Carcillo: "There’s not too much leeway for me in this league. Maybe [I should] give some serious thought into changing my last name or something."

Meanwhile, Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, much like Carcillo, is frustrated with multiple league punishments and apparently believes he is being singled out unfairly. Suh requested a meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and he'll get it on Tuesday. Said Suh when asked what the league doesn't get about him: "I have no clue, that's why we're having...

Brady: 'Poor level of execution all around'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was reserved in his postgame press conference following a 25-17 loss to the Steelers Sunday. The loss was a difficult one for the New England offense, which could not seem to find a rhythm at any point in the game. Brady was held to a season-low 198 yards while the Patriots were dominated by the Steelers in time of possession, 39:22 to 20:38.

"We just didn't execute very well on offense," Brady said. "I don't think we complemented our defense real well. The first quarter, we had an opportunity to go answer their score and we go three-and-out. There were too many three-and-outs. There was just a poor level of execution all around."

The game was not without controversy, as some in the media after the game questioned why coach Bill Belichick opted not to challenge a call in which tight end Rob Gronkowski appeared just barely break the plane for a touchdown that would have made it a 23-17 game with 4:...

Roethlisberger, Steelers get better of Pats

Ben Roethlisberger threw for two touchdowns and engineered five scoring drives of 10 plays or more to lead the Steelers to a 25-17 win over the Patriots Sunday afternoon at Heinz Field.

The Steelers (6-2) jumped on the Pats early, taking a 10-0 lead out of the gate and holding on in the second half to post their fourth win in a row and sixth victory in the last seven games. Meanwhile, the Patriots (5-2) saw a three-game winning streak go by the boards with the defeat, their first loss in Pittsburgh since 2004.

The New England offense was held in check all afternoon, as Tom Brady ended up 24-for-35 for 198 yards and two touchdowns. Brady found Deion Branch for one first-half touchdown and Aaron Hernandez for a second-half score, and the Patriots got a 46-yard field goal at the end of the second quarter from Stephen Gostkowski. But it wouldn't be enough, as the Steelers offense went up and down the field without an issue most of the afternoon....
