Belichick: Rex and I aren't playing

On a Monday afternoon conference call, Patriots coach Bill Belichick addressed Rex Ryan’s point that this week was about “Rex Ryan vs. Bill Belichick,” and not so much Patriots vs. Jets.

“I think he probably ... I might have a little quickness on him, he’s probably got a little strength and power on me,” Belichick said, tongue firmly in cheek. “I don’t think either one of us is making any blocks or tackles or runs or throws or catches. At least, you won’t see me doing that. That’s probably a good thing for our team.

“I just try to coach my team,” Belichick added later. “I don’t worry about what everyone else does. Other coaches do a good job, Rex does a great job. I just try to coach my team.”

Earlier on Monday, Ryan talked about how he was outcoached in December’s 45-3 win for the Patriots, and what he had to do differently this...

Rex: Game all about Ryan vs. Belichick

Jets coach Rex Ryan told reporters in New York that the coming divisional round playoff matchup between the Patriots and Jets will come down to the performances of himself and Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Ryan said that the two teams and their coaching staffs are equally talented, and so the coaches will play a pivotal role on Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.

 

Ryan said that the Jets were outcoached in his team's 45-3 loss to the Patriots in Week 13 -- a contest in which the Jets coach suggested the Patriots ran up the score, as is their right -- and that he was determined to engage in extraordinary preparation to ensure that his team is ready for its third meeting against New England this year.

 

“We’re going back up to Foxboro and all that kind of stuff. And after really looking at it, I realize that this is … that game, I was outcoached in that game. I said it then, and I’m saying it now....

Wilfork: Belichick haters deserve 'punch'

Vince Wilfork joined the Dale & Holley show Monday morning at Gillette Stadium for his weekly visit as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday. Wilfork talked about what to expect in Sunday's playoff game vs. the Jets.

 

"It's going to be a tough game," he said. "Every game in the playoffs is tough. Especially being able to play a team three times. It gets harder and harder and harder each time. I don't think anything we've done in the first games we played them this year are going to factor into this game. It's a totally different ballgame. For us, it's a 0-0 season, a brand new season.

 

"I think the approach is kind of different, because if you lose now, you go home. I think we'll get the Jets' best. I think everything they have to offer, we'll get. Probably some things we haven't seen, some things we've probably seen, we're going to get it. At the same time, we're in the same mode. Like I said, you lose,...

Source: Okajima to make $1.75 million

The Red Sox’ deal for left-hander Hideki Okajima is official, according to a major league source. Under terms of the contract, Okajima will receive a base salary of $1.75 million, with incentives that could push the value of the deal to $2.3 million. The deal was first reported by Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com (via twitter). Crasnick also said that the deal "includes a clause that allows him to become a free agent at the end of the 2011 season."

 

Okajima had a career-worst 4.50 ERA in 56 appearances for the Sox last year, struggling with injuries at various points of the 2010 season before a strong September. That led the Sox not to make him a free agent rather than tender him a contract that would have made him arbitration eligible. In doing so, the Sox were able to negotiate his contract down from the $2.75 million he received last season.

Sox prospect was nearly Auburn football star

As a highly regarded baseball and football prospect with extraordinary power in both sports and a scholarship commitment at Auburn, Brandon Jacobs frequently heard his name compared to that of Bo Jackson, another two-sport star who went to Auburn.

But Jacobs elected not to follow Jackson’s path, and instead – despite slipping to the 10th round in the 2009 draft over teams’ concerns that he wouldn’t bypass the chance to play football and baseball at Auburn – he decided to turn pro. The Sox signed him for $750,000, and while Jacobs has thought about the fact that he could have been playing in the BCS championship game with Auburn on Monday night, he said on the most recent episode of Minor Details that he has no regrets.

 

“It’s one of those things that wanders through my mind time and time again, but I’m very happy with the decision I made. I think it was the right decision,”...
