Lombardi on D&C: Jets, Bills .500 teams

NFL Network analyst Mike Lombardi, during his weekly Friday morning appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show, looked at the situation in the AFC East, where the Patriots appear to be clear favorites over the Jets, Bills and Dolphins.

While the Patriots failed to impress in the preseason, going 1-3, the Jets were worse, scoring just 31 points and going 0-4. The Bills and Dolphins also lost all four of their preseason games. While preseason records don't mean much, there are signs that the rest of the division has issues.

"I don't think the Jets are as bad as they've looked in the preseason," Lombardi said. "Certainly, I don't think they can win playing the Bo Schembechler-Woody Hayes game that they've decided to play. Running the football in the National Football League is really a time element in the sense of this: The Patriots need to run the ball more effectively to control the pace of the game. But their passing game is going...

Hernandez: '12 Pats have 'more of an edge'

Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez made the first of his weekly appearances on WEEI sister station WAAF Friday morning on The Hill-Man Morning Show.

Although the Patriots went just 1-3 in the preseason and didn't impress much on offense, Hernandez said he isn't concerned heading into Sunday's regular-season opener against the Titans.

"I definitely feel confident," he said. "In the preseason they do a lot of the basics. You never really do much of the offense and stuff like that. So, I feel like we're definitely ready for the season."

The Patriots are coming off a loss to the Giants in the Super Bowl, but Hernandez said the team doesn't spend time rehashing it.

"You've got to move on, or else you'll be stuck in the past forever," he said. "Hopefully we get there this year and have a different outcome."

However, Hernandez admitted the loss has given the Patriots some inspiration.

Scalabrine retires, to call Celtics games

According to a Yahoo! Sports report, former Celtics forward Brian Scalabrine is retiring and will participate in broadcasting games for Comcast Sports Net New England.

The report states that Scalabrine turned down an opportunity to join Tom Thibodeau's coaching staff with the Bulls, the team he played for the past two seasons. Prior to joining Chicago, Scalabrine played five seasons with the Celtics.

"Saying no to Thibs was the hardest decision I've ever had to make," Scalabrine said, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Scalabrine is scheduled to provide color commentary for three preseason and eight regular-season games, while also participating in studio work through January. He said what helped make his decision was the lack of interest from NBA teams in regard to continuing as a player.

"There was zero interest [in me],"...
