Belichick isn't 'too worried' about allegations

FOXBORO --  Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday he's not overly concerned about charges from Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress that he is one of the best "sign stealers" in the NFL. The Patriots handled the Vikings easily, 31-7, in their last meeting on a Monday night in 2006. 

 

"Yeah, I''m not really too worried about 2006," Belichick said. "I'm worried about this Sunday against Minnesota. I'm not worried next Sunday, last Sunday, '06, '02, '89. Really, it's just this Sunday. Really, I'm just trying to coach this team and get ready for the Vikings. You have to talk to the other coaches. I don't know.

 

"We've talked about some other games before but really, my focus is the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday afternoon. That's what I'm here for."

Milbury on D&H: Cap issues haunt B's

NESN and NBC hockey analyst Mike Milbury made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday, one day before the Bruins welcome Phil Kessel and the Maple Leafs to TD Garden. Like the Bruins, the Leafs are off to a fast start this season, although Milbury noted there are obvious weaknesses.

 

"They're not pretty on the back end," Milbury said. "They're supposed to be strong on the blue line, but they cough it up regularly, so there'll be plenty of chances to score. … They're a volatile team, but at least they're playing with some vinegar, so it should be a pretty good matchup."

 

Asked if there was a chance Tyler Seguin might be sent back to his junior team before the 10-game deadline, Milbury said he wasn't sure. "I don't know what they're going to do better than Seguin, unless they decide they can use his salary cap space and plug a hole somewhere else," Milbury said...

Childress 'didn't mean any offense' to Pats

Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress stood by his comments of earlier in the week when he suggested the Patriots are "some of the all-time great signal stealers" in the NFL. But he added, during a conference call to Patriots' reporters on Wednesday, that every coach does it and they should be credited for being a great organization. 

 

"I said what I said," Childress explained. "That's in the past. We all try to get any tips we can get or glean standing on the sidelines. I'm sure it's done throughout the league and we do it as well just let those [comments] stand. I have a great deal of respect for coach Belichick and the way he's formulated that program in the last 10 years and I've told him so. He has a mentally tough team that are great competitors that I hope one of my teams play one of these days."

 

Childress said he didn't believe that Belichick had any unusual...
