Mangini: Loose officiating benefited Ravens

ESPN analyst Eric Mangini, the former Jets and Browns coach, joined Mut & Merloni on Monday afternoon to offer his take on the Patriots’ 28-13 loss to the Ravens in the AFC championship game.

Mangini said the Ravens borrowed a strategy from the old Patriots playbook by being aggressive toward receivers as they come off the line of scrimmage — and seeing what they can get away with.

“There were a bunch of times yesterday when the officials were just letting the teams play,” Mangini said. “There were times when Brandon Lloyd got hit in the face, there were times where he was hit well after five yards. But as Bill [Belichick] always says, ‘We do business as business is being done.’ So as long as they were letting it happen, Baltimore was going to do it. That’s the feel that it had.

“I think what you have to...

Welker's wife calls out Ray Lewis

A year after Tom Brady‘s wife, Gisele Bundchen, made news with her impassioned defense of her husband following the Patriots’ Super Bowl loss to the Giants, Wes Welker‘s wife grabbed some headlines with her thoughts after the Pats lost to the Ravens in the AFC championship game.

In a post on her Facebook page (via The Big Lead), Anna Burns Welker wrote:

Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis‘ Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!

Anna Burns Welker, a former Miss Hooters, was married to the receiver in June.

Aqib Talib: 'I definitely enjoy being a Patriot'

FOXBORO — Aqib Talib did not want to talk about the possibility of having played his final game with the Patriots on Sunday. But he did acknowledge the possibility as part of the business.

Talib was acquired at the trade deadline from Tampa Bay and played in the final seven regular season games after finishing his suspension for Adderall use and violating the NFL PED policy.

Talib is eligible to test the market when the free agency begins in March.

“I’m not really worried about all that right now,” said Talib, who came out with a thigh injury in the first quarter and did not return. “The game was 12 hours ago. I’m in the training room with the guys, we’re having fun. I’m still a Patriot. I think free agency don’t start til March, so until then, I’m still a Patriot. And I’m going to enjoy my time.

“I definitely enjoy being a...

By: DJ Bean

Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg will not play in Monday’s matinee against the Jets due to a lower-body injury, according to the team. Aaron Johnson is in the lineup in his place. The team said Seidenberg is day-to-day.

Claude Julien said prior to Monday’s matinee that it will be Tuukka Rask in net for the B’s. Rask, who inherited the No. 1 netminding job with Tim Thomas taking the year off, made 20 saves on 21 shots in the season-opening win over the Rangers Saturday.

Belichick: 'Deal with me again next year'

FOXBORO — The longest tenured coach in the NFL announced Monday that he would be back for a 14th season as head coach of the Patriots in 2013.

“I’ll be here,” Bill Belichick announced toward the end of his season-ending press conference with the media at Gillette Stadium. “You’ll have to deal with me again next year. I know that’s disappointing for a lot of you. Until I’m told otherwise, I plan on being here.”

As for the accomplishments of his team following a season-ending loss in the AFC championship, Belichick said there was plenty to be proud of.

“We won 13 games,” Belichick said of the 13-5 mark his team posted in 18 games. “We’re playing in the AFC championship game. Not a whole lot of teams are saying that. Our production.”
