Wilfork on Big Show: Don't blame secondary
By: DJ Bean

Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork joined The Big Show Monday to discuss New England's 24-23 loss to the Seahawks Sunday. With the loss, the Patriots are 3-3 on the season. 

The Patriots' secondary had a particularly bad day against Seattle, allowing a number of big passing plays that included Sidney Rice's game-winning 46-yard touchdown reception. Though the secondary's struggles have gotten plenty of attention this season, Wilfork said the loss isn't on the defensive backs. 

"You know what? I'm not going to point no fingers at anyone because this isn't track and field where you run 100 meters and get a medal or you throw a shot-put and you just get a medal," Wilfork said. "This is a team effort and I would never throw my teammates under the bus. We can do a lot better job of containing the quarterback, being able to get a little more pressure on these guys, so I'm not going to sit here and say it's all our secondary'...

Red Sox hold ticket prices steady for 2013

The Red Sox announced that ticket prices for all categories of seats that are sold to the public will remain steady in 2013, with Red Sox CEO/president Larry Lucchino suggesting that it was "abundantly clear" that the team should not increase prices. Here is the team press release: 

The Boston Red Sox today announced that prices for all ticket categories available for public sale for the 2013 regular season at Fenway Park will be held at 2012 levels.  This “freeze” applies to both season ticket and individual game sales.  This marks the third time in five years the team has held ticket prices.  The Red Sox also froze prices for the 2009 and 2012 seasons. 

“It was abundantly clear this year that we should hold the line on ticket prices,” said President/CEO Larry Lucchino. “Over the past few years, we have fallen short of our goals to play postseason baseball....

Sherman: Patriots run 'gimmick' offense

Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman took a few shots after the game at Tom Brady and the Patriots via Twitter. He also had plenty to say about the New England offense, telling the News-Tribune after the game that the Patriots “are running this gimmick, hurry-up stuff. You don’t do that in the NFL. ... It’s not effective because there are great defenses out there.”

Sherman, who helped spearhead the No. 1 defense in the league to a 24-23 win over the Patriots on Sunday, also apparently kept up a running dialogue with Brady during the game.

“I kept saying I’m going to get that next time,” Sherman said of his in-game conversations with the Patriots...

Branch on M&M: 'Back to the drawing board'

Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch made his weekly appearance with Mut & Merloni on Monday afternoon, a day after New England's disappointing 24-23 loss to the Seahawks.

"It was a tough one," Branch said. "We went out and played pretty good in the first half. The second half it just wasn't the type of football we want to put out on the field. Overall, we had so many chances to win the game and put the game away, and we didn't."

Added Branch: "I think overall we had a pretty good plan going into the game. We've just got to do a better job of finishing the game, scoring points in the red area."

This marks the third time this season the Patriots had a victory in their grasp only to let it slip away by making key mistakes down the stretch. Branch assured Patriots fans that the team will solve that problem.

"We don't want people to start getting all frantic," he said. "We're going to go...

Branch: Pats left too many points on field
By: DJ Bean

Patriots receiver Deion Branch joined Mut & Merloni Monday, saying the Patriots simply failed to execute down the stretch in their 24-23 loss to the Seahawks on Monday. 

"We had so many chances to put the game away and we just didn't," he said. 

The Patriots were just 1-for-6 in the red zone Sunday, with their failure to get points from in close allowing the Seahawks to hang around long enough to earn a come-from-behind victory in the fourth quarter.   

"We left a lot of points on the field, to be honest with you," Branch said. "We left a lot of points."

Added Branch: "It wasn't confusion, it was all a lack of execution. Lack of execution, that's all. That's what it was." 

Tom Brady notably missed and underthrew receivers at various points throughout the game, perhaps due to the ball being harder or slippery because of the rainy weather in Seattle. Branch said...
