Welker not concerned with low numbers

FOXBORO -- In the wake of his three-catch performance Sunday in a win over the Titans, Wes Welker didn't sound like someone who was too upset. 

Welker finished with three catches on five targets for a total of 14 yards in the 34-13 win over Tennessee. It was his lowest output, yardage-wise, since the 2009 regular-season finale against the Texans -- the game where he suffered a brutal knee injury -- when he had one catch for 12 yards. (Before that, you have to go all the way back to the 2006 season when he had one catch for 11 yards in a Dolphins loss to the Jets -- his next-to-last game in a Miami uniform -- to find such an inauspicious day.)

But Welker wasn't complaining about things when he met the media Monday at Gillette Stadium.

"At the end of the day, it's about winning ballgames," Welker said Monday afternoon. "However we need to do that or whatever we need to do...

BB: 'We played physically for 60 minutes'

FOXBORO -- After watching the game film on Monday of the season-opening 34-13 win over the Titans in Nashville, Bill Belichick praised his team for its complete effort. 

"I thought players really did a good job," Belichick said. "They deserve really all the credit for the outcome of the game. I thought we played physically for 60 minutes and made plays in all three phases of the game. We scored 27 points offensively, that's OK, didn't turn the ball over. 

"Defensively, we had a solid day. In special teams, we had real good field position, defensively we played on a long field and had a few short-field [offensive] opportunities between the defense and the special teams so those things were good."

The Patriots had a very active day on defense, intercepting the ball once, returning a strip-sack fumble for a touchdown while another fumble recovery was overruled by instant replay. 

"Didn't turn...

Krejci wants Thomas back with B's
By: DJ Bean

BOLTON -- David Krejci said prior to Monday's Bruins golf tournament that he hopes Tim Thomas eventually comes back to the Bruins. 

The Thomas subject has been a rather touchy one when it comes to the Bruins. He told them after the season he'd be taking the year off, leaving them with a potential salary cap burden. Furthermore, his exit paved the way for Tuukka Rask to get his chance as a starting goaltender.

Bruins players have generally danced around the subject of what might happen if Thomas were to return after next season, but when Krejci brought up the subject Monday at the team's golf tournament in Bolton, the center made it clear that wants Thomas back with the Bruins. 

"I was in shock a little bit just like everybody else I guess, but you've got to respect his personal life," Krejci said when asked his reaction to Thomas' decision. "If he wants to take a year off, then he should do what he feels is right for...

Ference: 'Pretty tough to be optimistic'
By: DJ Bean

BOLTON -- Wearing an NHLPA hat with his golf attire, Bruins defenseman and former player rep Andrew Ference said prior to the team's golf tournament Monday that he doesn't see much reason for optimism that a new collective bargaining agreement will be reached before the current one expires this Saturday.

"I don't know if optimistic's the right word, not with the way things have been going so far," Ference said. "It's pretty tough to be optimistic. I think at the beginning of the summer there were a lot of great talks. Hopefully that can continue and we can see some progress. Obviously this next week or two is pretty big."

Upwards of 200 NHL players are set to meet this week in New York, as will the league's board of governors. 

"Hopefully they'll get some different viewpoints on the table and let some of the other people talk from around the league," Ference said. "… You'd hope that in the next...
