Suh had 'fun beating up Brady Bunch'

Ndamukong Suh was a dominant force for the Lions in the 34-10 win over Patriots on Saturday night, and the defensive tackle shared his thoughts on the victory via Twitter and Facebook the following day. 

“What up Twitter fam,” Suh said in a Facebook video message on Sunday. “Last night was a lot of fun beating up on the Brady Bunch. I think we played pretty well as a team. It’s a good start, happy with where we’re at right now but never satisfied and looking for more.”

Suh didn't register a sack of Brady on Saturday but did get a pair of hits on the quarterback. The second-year tackle was also involved in a brief altercation with Logan Mankins.

Report: NBA sets Sept. 15 deadline

NBA owners have set a Sept. 15 deadline to reach a collective bargaining agreement with the players association before training camps and preseason games are canceled, according to a HoopsWorld report.

The owners and players plan to meet this week for just the second time since the lockout began on July 1, but with just over two weeks time before the reported deadline it appears unlikely the preseason schedule will go unaffected.

The Celtics recently released an eight-game preseason schedule slated to begin against the 76ers at Providence's Dunkin' Donuts Center on Oct. 10. The schedule also features games played locally in Amherst, Hartford and, of course, Boston.

Woodhead on M&M: 'I was ready to go'

Running back Danny Woodhead joined the Mut & Merloni show Monday morning as part of WEEI’s Patriots Monday. Woodhead was drilled in Game 2 of the preseason but said there was never a question about being ready for Saturday’s game vs. the Lions.

“That was not even a little bit of a worry going into the game,” he said. “I was ready to go. I was obviously out there, so that wasn’t of any concern for me.”

Woodhead was hit while covering on special teams late in the Buccaneers game. Asked if he had any concerns about being in a vulnerable position so late in a preseason game, Woodhead said no.

“It’s a football game,” he said. “You’ve got to play every minute that you’re in. The biggest thing that we go by is we’ve got to play 60 minutes no matter what it is. I was out there and maybe I got hit. It’s football. That’s what we signed up to play....

Brady on D&C: We only listen to Belichick

Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to analyze the Patriots' performance in Saturday's 34-10 loss to the Lions.

"It's not a regular-season loss. It doesn't count in the standings," Brady said. "It identifies a lot of things we need to do better. And the game is certainly important, the preseason game. But we're glad that game didn't count toward the regular-season standing. We're going to go out there and have a good week this week and certainly play a lot better this [Thursday]."

Asked if the Patriots might get some inspiration from Saturday's struggles after turning heads with impressive performances in the first two games, Brady said the team isn't looking at the preseason the same way as the fans and media.

"Who knows at this point? You hate losing anytime you take the field in competition," he said. "I'm sure there's a lot to be learned, a lot to be...

Mashup: Yanks 'disrespectful' to sad O's

The Orioles are not pleased with what they perceive to be insensitivity on the part of the Yankees regarding the rescheduling of a game in Baltimore postponed by Hurricane Irene. The Yankees were pushing to cram in another game Friday afternoon in an attempt to avoid losing one of their two remaining days off in September. The Orioles, however, wanted to avoid a doubleheader on Friday partly because they were planning a tribute to Mike Flanagan, who died last week. And with Hurricane Irene affecting millions of people in the area, there was little sympathy for the ballplayers.

“First of all, I felt that some of the stuff was a little disrespectful to Flanny quite frankly,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter told MLB.com. “That didn’t sit with me very well. I can tell you that. … I’m sure if [the Yankees] stopped and thought about it, if the same thing that happened to one of their greats, that they probably would have...
