King on D&H: Pats should play Hoyer

Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports checked in for his weekly Patriots Friday appearance on the Dale & Holley show with guest hosts Chris Price and Eric Frede.

 

King lauded the Patriots for the turnaround in Foxboro this season, crediting Bill Belichick and director of player personnel Nick Caserio. Said King: "It's an amazing job by this organization. … I think it's a tremendous tribute to Belichick."

 

Asked if Caserio will receive attention around the league for his contributions, King wasn't so sure, due to the fact that the Patriots protect him so well. "Nobody knows who he is," King said. "He's under a rock. I've never met the guy."

 

King said the Patriots would do well to give Tom Brady extra time on the bench Sunday vs. Miami, mainly to see what they have behind him. "I just think it's smart if you have a good picture of...

Taylor on D&H: 'Be realistic' about future

Patriots running back Fred Taylor joined guest hosts Chris Price and Eric Frede for his regular appearance on the Dale & Holley show as part of WEEI's Patriots Friday.

 

Taylor was featured in a Boston Globe story this week, and in it he talked about his future in the league after an injury-plagued 2010 season.

 

"I have been considering retirement since about Year 8 or 9," he said. "I said, 'Well, when I make it to 10, I'll shut it down.' But good things continue to happen for me, and my motivation was 1) to try and make the Pro Bowl, after all those years of being snubbed. Another thing is to try and win the championship.

 

"I just kept going in the offseason, trying to recommit myself and rededicate myself to the game. And then when I got around the younger guys, the inspiration came from the camaraderie and competing against old guys in the offseason workouts and trying to...

Brady: 'I don't think we take weeks off'

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady left no doubt that he intends to start and play in the season finale against the Miami Dolphins this Sunday at Gillette Stadium, despite the fact the Patriots have already wrapped up the No. 1 seed and home field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

 

"That's the focus of what's really been the trademark of this team, is to always make improvements over the course of the season," Brady said. "I don't think we take weeks off, I don't think we take days off."

 

The Patriots are also trying to finish with a perfect home regular-season record for the third time in four seasons. Brady has won an NFL-record 27 consecutive starts at Gillette Stadium. For more, visit the Patriots team page at weei.com/patriots and the blog It Is What It Is

Mayo on D&H: 'Earning my stripes'

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday as part of WEEI's Patriots Friday. Joining guest hosts Eric Frede and Chris Price, Mayo talked about Sunday's regular-season finale against the Dolphins as the Patriots prepare to head into the playoffs with a bye week before hosting a conference semifinal.

 

"We're going out there with the mindset to win," Mayo said of Sunday. "We really don't want to head into the playoffs after a loss, so I think everybody that's healthy and able to play will play."

 

Mayo said Bill Belichick has showed no signs of letting up on the team this week. Said Mayo: "He's telling us, 'Be ready to go.' That's what we're doing. We're preparing like this is a regular game, like our record is 0-0. We're going out there trying to win this game. Like I said, everybody that can play will play. How much, we don't know. But we're...

Scott Cordischi and John Rooke take your calls, texts, tweets and emails on the week's hot topics. The boys are back together in studio! It’s a bittersweet reunion due to the end of the NCAABB Tournament run for the PC Friars, so we say “see you next season” to the play by play team of John Rooke and Joe Hassett. We don’t waste time looking ahead with the issues confronting the men’s basketball program at URI and PC. On the table is the argument over the validity of RPI, outgoing coveted players, incoming recruits and whether Coaches Dan Hurley and Ed Cooley will remain after their successful 2014 season. Some time is spent on the NFL owners meetings, with the whiny Baltimore Ravens and a ranting Bill Belichick. We close March in all it’s madness, with “Three Things” where we celebrate the open mic and a young man’s passion .
