Neal on D&H: Pats aim to silence Jets fans

Patriots offensive lineman Stephen Neal made his weekly call into the Dale & Holley show Friday afternoon and talked about what he expects to face Sunday when the Pats play the Jets, who feature one of the league's best defenses.

 

"With the Jets, you never know how they're going to line up," Neal said. "They have a lot of good game-plan fronts that they'll throw in there, so you just never know. They have a lot of in-between-type guys, linebacker-lineman types that always can give you some problems, too. It's going to be a formidable front for us again, and hopefully we put in enough work this week and we can all work together and have a good performance."

 

Added Neal: "The key thing is all five of us, and the tight ends, everyone on the field has to kind of know how we're seeing the thing. If you have a whole bunch of people on the field doing different things, that when problems happen....

Savard has post-concussion syndrome
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Friday at TD Garden that Marc Savard notified him late in the summer that he is suffering from "symptoms related to post-concussion syndrome." As a result, Savard, who is in Boston with his teammates as they open training camp, will not skate. The symptoms shown by the veteran center are undoubtedly a result of the March 7 hit from Penguins forward Matt Cooke.

 

Chiarelli said that as a result of the setback, second overall pick Tyler Seguin, expected to be moved to wing given the team's depth at center, will stick to his original position for the time being.

 

"It's unfortunate," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "Right now we're missing a real good player. ... I think it's pretty unanimous  in our group that we want him back as soon as possible."

King on D&H: 'Turmoil building' with Jets

Sports Illustrated NFL columnist Peter King joined Dale & Holley on Friday for his weekly conversation and touched on a number of topics, including his pick of the Jets to beat the Patriots despite the heavy dysfunction within the organization. "I think it just falls under the category of, I look at games and look at the desperate team," King said. "The Jets are going to play this game like a desperate team. There's so much turmoil building there. I don't have any real scientific thing, other than I think they're going to play the game like every play is their last." King also expects a big effort from Jets running back Shonn Greene. 

 

The Jets' issues start with quarterback Mark Sanchez. "I think this offense had such a bad summer with no sign that they were making progress. None," King said. "I think there's a lot of blame to go around for that, but I would blame Sanchez more than I would...
