BC's Finch earns ACC weekly honors

Boston College sophomore running back Rolandan Finch was named ACC Offensive Back of the Week for his play in Saturday's 28-17 victory over Maryland. Finch rushed 39 times for 243 yards, the most by an ACC player this season. He also scored two touchdowns.

Finch's 243-yard performance ranks third in BC history, behind on Montel Harris' 264 yards vs. NC State in 2009 and Phil Bennett's 259 yards vs. Temple in 1972.

Lucic: No change needed with roster
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- With the Bruins sitting in last place in the Eastern Conference and coming off three straight losses, there has been speculation regarding what moves can be made to improve the defending Stanley Cup champions. General manager Peter Chiarelli reportedly has been working the phones, and the possibility exists that the team could call up a player from Providence. 

Bruins forward Milan Lucic, who led the team with 30 goals last season, said after Monday's practice that he doesn't feel change to the roster is needed.

"I think we've proven that this group works. If you look into it too much, you can almost go [crazy] if you read into it or look into it too much," he said. "This group works, and the only way we're going to start working again is if we start playing like a group again. I think that's our biggest challenge right now. 

"We need everyone going at the same time and everyone being on the same...

Branch: Steelers got away with 'extra stuff'

Patriots receiver Deion Branch stopped by for a visit with Mut & Merloni at Gillette Stadium as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday and talked about Sunday's 25-17 loss to the Steelers.

The Steelers played more man defense than many people expected, but Branch isn't one of those people.

"I wouldn't say it was a surprise, no. They did what they were expected to do," he said. "There were some times that they played man in the past and did some different things.

"Obviously, we just didn't match the intensity of the game. Just overall, their guys came out with a lot of energy, and we didn't do the same thing. We didn't match the energy at all. As an offense, we didn't take control of the game like we normally would. Getting off the field, three-and-outs, we had a bunch of three-and-outs. A lot of flags. And it seems like I'm talking about the same thing every week. But it is what it is. That's what we're doing. We're killing...

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...
