King on D&H: Steelers win high-scoring game

Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday morning from the Steelers' Super Bowl practice facility in Forth Worth, Texas.

 

Dallas is being hit by its worth winter weather in two decades, and the city is not prepared for the snow and ice that have restricted road use. "It's been stunning this week to see the weather take over and sort of dominate the landscape, and a guy as powerful as [Cowboys] owner Jerry Jones basically be powerless to do anything about it," King said.

 

King has predicted a Steelers victory, and he said Thursday's practice did nothing to change his mind. Said King: "Ben Roethlisberger was OK on Wednesday, you know, missed a bunch of throws. But yesterday, he had about as good a practice … That was as impressive a practice performance as I've seen, against the Steelers scout team. What does it mean? Probably nothing...

Bruins' Paille suspended 4 games
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON — Bruins forward Daniel Paille was suspended for four games Friday following his blindside hit on Stars forward Raymond Sawada in Thursday's 6-3 victory over the Stars. Paille was given a game misconduct after the play, with Sawada not returning to the game. 

 

Paille was present at Friday's practice, skating on the fourth line with Shawn Thornton, Gregory Campbell and Tyler Seguin. The team had called up center Zach Hamill from Providence on Thursday, meaning no move will need to be made to fill his roster spot. Paille will be eligible to return Feb. 15 against the Maple Leafs.

Schefter on D&C: Packers have edge

ESPN's Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about the Super Bowl. Schefter is predicting the Packers to win, 28-24. "They are a better, deeper team," he sad. "I like the quarterback. I just think that they are a tough out."

 

Talking about Aaron Rodgers, Schefter said: "He has been the best quarterback in football over the last 5-6 weeks, period. He is as good as any quarterback in the game right now. He's dominant."

 

Schefter said Pittsburgh's defense could give Rodgers some problems, but the QB isn't like to falter because of the Super Bowl spotlight. "I don't think he wilts under the bright lights," Schefter said. "Could he wilt against that defense? I mean, that defense has gotten to some quarterbacks. That's possible. But I don't think the pressure of the situation is going to affect or faze him one bit."...

Mashup: Packer locates missing father

Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins used Super Bowl media day Tuesday to make public the fact that he was unable to reach his father, who had been out of touch for over a month. He continued to share his concern during the week and said he planned to leave his father a ticket for the game in hopes he would attend. On Thursday, Jenkins’ brother, Jets defensive tackle Kris Jenkins, told The Associated Press that Darome Jenkins, who raised his sons as a single father in Michigan, had been located by police at his home in Hawaii.

 

“It’s something where I’m just thinking that maybe he’s taking time to himself or something,” Cullen Jenkins had said a few hours before the call came from his father. “Maybe he just pulled back away from everybody right now. Maybe that’s what’s going on. There’s just a lot of questions and unknowns about it. That’s what makes it most difficult.”...

Schilling on D&C: Sox set for 'multi-year run'

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. A Steelers fan since birth (his father grew up in the Pittsburgh area) Schilling predicts a 31-21 victory over the Packers on Sunday.

 

Asked if he has any hesitation cheering for an individual with a shaky past in Ben Roethlisberger, Schilling said he no longer wears the quarterback's jersey but still roots for the team.

 

"Listen, I played 23 years. I played with some guys who did some pretty bad stuff who were my teammates who I had to treat as family when I played with them," he said. "I can separate the man and the uniform. I'm rooting for the black and gold."

 

Schilling said even if Roethlisberger wins his third Super Bowl on Sunday, he doesn't belong in the discussion about the game's best at the position.

 

Said Schilling: "Sunday, one of two things is...
