Branch on D&H: 'I'm home now'

Patriots receiver Deion Branch stopped by for a brief visit with the Dale & Holley show Monday from Gillette Stadium as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday. Branch recounted his long touchdown pass from Tom Brady in Thursday's win over the Lions and talked about how grateful he is to be back in New England following the trade with the Seahawks.

 

"I'm just thankful for the opportunity that Mr. [Robert] Kraft and coach [Bill] Belichick came back to give me, the opportunity to come back and play here and join this team," he said. "I'm home now."

 

Branch said Brady makes his receivers want to run all out because he considers every option, as was the case on Thursday's big play, a 79-yard touchdown that tied the game in the third quarter.

 

"When the coaches install the plays, they have [options] 1's, 2's and 3's, by guys' names," Branch explained. "But it's really not that...

Savard: Return is 'just around the corner'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins center Marc Savard doesn't know when he will make his long-awaited season debut after battling post-concussion symptoms, but said on Monday that it won't be long before he is back. Following his third practice of the full-contact variety, Savard felt confident that he could soon be in the Bruins' lineup. 

 

"[It was] another good day, and a little bit of work after, and continuing to progress," Savard, who worked on battle drills with teammate Adam McQuaid, said. "Hopefully I'm going to get in soon, just around the corner."

 

Savard seemed quite sure that he would not be in the lineup when the Bruins take on the Flyers on Wednesday. Asked about his prospects of playing in Philadelphia, Savard replied, "I don't think so. No, I'm not going to be playing Wednesday. I don't think so."

 

The center's chances of playing on...

Belichick sidesteps question on McDaniels

Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked Monday about the recent Denver Broncos videotaping incident — which involved former Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Steve Scarnecchia, a former employee of the New England video department — and sidestepped the question, saying the team was concentrating on this week's task at hand.

"Just focused on the Jets," Belichick said.

McDaniels and the organization were fined $50,000 each by the NFL for taping a 49ers walk-through prior to their game in London last month. The team reported the league violation to the NFL. McDaniels took the fine on behalf of Scarnecchia, who filmed the 49ers prior to their game on Oct. 31, a game won by San Francisco, 24-16. Scarnecchia, the son of Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia, was fired as a result of the violation.
 
"I apologize for not promptly reporting the improper conduct of...

Wilfork on D&H: 'Going to slug it out' vs. Jets

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Monday morning as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday. Wilfork said "it was something special" to walk away with a win in Detroit on Thanksgiving Day.

 

Now, he's turned his attention to the Jets, who pay a visit next Monday night. "We're looking forward to a division rival," he said. "We're going to slug it out. It's going to be an exciting game, and hopefully we're going to be on the winning side of it."

 

Wilfork called the Jets "probably the best team in the NFL." Said Wilfork: "They're probably one of the soundest teams there is out there — defense, special teams and offense. In every category, they have a person at an All-Pro level."

 

Statistically speaking, the Patriots have one of the worst defenses in team history. Wilfork admitted he's seen...
