Wilfork on D&H: Browns started turnaround

As part of WEEI's Patriots Monday, defensive lineman Vince Wilfork made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show, one day after the Patriots closed out the regular season with a 38-7 domination of the Dolphins.

 

Wilfork was flagged for a personal foul during Sunday's game but only had time for a brief explanation from the referee who made the call. "He said something about me hitting to the head," Wilfork said. "I don't know if I did or didn't. I've seen a little clip of it and it didn't seem like I did. I don't know. I don't know. The only thing I can continue to do is play ball.

 

"I don't think it was anything dirty from my part. When I went in, I didn't intend to hit him in the head. … We know how everything is with protection of players. A rule is a rule. So, if I did hit him in his helmet, we'll have to take it up with the league. It really didn't bother me as much. But a penalty...

Meriweather on D&H: No respect for D

Patriots defensive back Brandon Meriweather checked in for his weekly chat on the Dale & Holley show page Monday as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday.

 

Asked how he would spend the bye week before the Patriots' playoff opener, Meriweather said: "Just trying to get better. It's a time where you focus even harder now. You've got to take your game up a notch. You just try to focus on the little things and let your body heal."

 

Despite the recent success of the Patriots defense and his selection to the Pro Bowl, Meriweather said the defensive unit continues to be overlooked. "We will never get the respect we deserve. And that's just the truth," he said. "You know it, I know it. We could have the best defense in NFL history, and we would never get the respect we deserve."

 

Pressed as to why he feels that way, he responded: "Because this team is still offensive-friendly. It...

Esiason on D&C: Steelers a threat to Pats

Boomer Esiason of CBS Sports made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about the Patriots and the NFL.

 

Following the Patriots' rout of the Dolphins on Sunday, Esiason said Tom Brady will get his vote for MVP. "I do believe he's playing his best football of his career," Esiason said. "Even the years that he won the Super Bowl and even the year they went 19-0 and went to the Super Bowl. To me, this was by far his best season, especially in the last six games. ... Brady has been on another level since the Cleveland game."

 

Added Esiason: "I would not be surprised if he wins the award going away, probably 95 to 5 percent of the votes [for Michael Vick]."

 

However, for Coach of the Year, Esiason said he's likely to pass over Bill Belichick in favor of the coach of the Buccaneers. Said Esiason: "Raheem Morris, 10-6, they're not...

Mashup: ESPN suspends announcer, anchor

ESPN announcer Ron Franklin was pulled from the radio broadcast of Saturday's Fiesta Bowl following his sexist comment toward a female sideline reporter. Franklin, 68, reportedly referred to Jeannine Edwards as "sweetcakes" during a production meeting when she attempted to join a discussion he was having with another announcer. When she complained, Franklin allegedly then swore at her. ESPN did not have time to find a replacement for Friday's Chick-fil-A Bowl but made the move for Saturday.

 

The move comes just days after an ESPN anchor was suspended for plagiarizing a newspaper story. Will Selva admitted to copying all but a few words of a column on the Lakers written by Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register and using it on air.

Brady on D&C: Pats have earned it

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning for his weekly appearance on WEEI's Patriots Monday. The Patriots closed out the regular season Sunday with a 38-7 win over the Dolphins, allowing several backups to get playing time in the rout.

 

"I think we got what we wanted out of it," Brady said. "A bunch of guys got opportunities to play. ... It was really a great win."

 

Brady noted the play of quarterback Brian Hoyer and receiver Taylor Price, who made big plays in the first games of the season, as well as receiver/punt returner Julian Edelman. "That's what this team is made of," Brady said. "It's a bunch of guys who are trying to go out there and give everything they've got. And I think that's what we've done, that's what worked, and that's what we'll continue to do."

 

Brady said he's confident Hoyer could step in at...
