Evans second-guesses Belichick in SB XLII

Former Patriots running back Heath Evans, now an analyst for the NFL Network, joined the Dennis & Callahan show and reflected on the Patriots' loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLII and engaged in what he described as a "stupid" exercise of questioning how New England coach Bill Belichick prepared his team for that game. Evans felt that Belichick may have pushed a tired Patriots team too hard in practice as they were trying to conclude a perfect season.

"I don't think we felt the weight until it was over and done with. Man, we were a fatigued football team. The better team won. I hate to say it, but the better team won that day. So it's not an excuse. But you get done with that season and you reflect back and you're like, 'Man, we were a tired football team,'" Evans said. "I'm going to do something stupid and I'm going to second-guess Bill Belichick. We all agreed with the full pads Thursday, Friday, Saturday in...

Mashup: WPS, Breakers cancel 2012 season

Women's Professional Soccer, a league that includes the Boston Breakers, will take the 2012 season off as it attempts to settle a dispute with an ousted team owner. The league indicated it hopes to return in 2013.

Dan Borislow bought the Washington Freedom before last season and moved them to South Florida, renaming them magicJack, after the company he owns. Things quickly turned sour, and Borislow sued WPS in August. The league responded by accusing him of "unprofessional and disparaging treatment of his players to failure to pay his bills."

A Florida judge ruled this month that the league did not follow its own procedures when it terminated Borislow's franchise, and another court hearing is set for Wednesday.

WPS CEO Jennifer O'Sullivan said owners preferred canceling the season to working with Borislow again.

"We have diverted so many resources into litigation," she said. "This is something that needs to be...

Report: Matsuzaka throws off mound

According to the Mainichi Daily News, Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka threw a bullpen session off a mound for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery last June. Matsuzaka threw off the mound 21 times, with his first 10 tosses coming with a catcher standing in front of home plate and his last 10 being pitches with the catcher crouching behind the plate.

"Today is like a warm-up," Matsuzaka told reporters. "I think I'll throw harder next week."

Matsuzaka was 3-3 with a 5.30 ERA in eight games (seven starts) in 2011, and has a career 49-30 mark and 4.25 ERA in five seasons with the Red Sox. He is in the last year of a six-year, $52 million deal with the Sox.

While there had been some sentiment that Matsuzaka may have thrown his last pitch with the Sox, team officials have raved about conditioning and rehab...

Delcarmen, who was selected in the second round of the 2000 draft by the Sox, played for Boston from 2005-10 before being traded to the Rockies. He split the 2011 season in the minor leagues between the Mariners and Rangers organizations but did not throw a pitch in the majors. 

In his career, Delcarmen has a 3.97 earned run average and 249 strikeouts in 292 2/3 innings.

Belichick: Revenge not a factor for Pats

INDIANAPOLIS -- Bill Belichick spoke to the media Monday afternoon, and by most accounts was relaxed and in good humor for the second straight day. Belichick was asked about comments made by former Patriots Rodney Harrison and Heath Evans, who both suggested that revenge for the loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLII could be a motivating factor for New England on Sunday.

"You can talk to all of those guys," Belichick said. "Their opinions are their opinions. But I see this game as this game. There aren't all that many people who played in the last game four years ago. This team is this team. I think our team is different than it was at midseason and different from what it was in December. I think the Giants are a different team than when we played them in November and I think they are a different team than where they were in early December. This game, the elements of it are what we have in front of us, not what happened two months ago or...
