QB guru Martinez says Brady in pain

During his appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday, Tom Brady was asked how he was feeling. There had been a report indicating that he has a bone bruise near the elbow on his right arm and he's been wearing a black band below the elbow, but Brady assured the hosts there was nothing of concern.

"I’m fine. I feel great,” he said. “I feel as good as I’ve ever felt going into Thanksgiving time. I feel really good and excited about where we’re at and hopefully we can keep building on these wins."

However, according to Brady's longtime personal coach, Tom Martinez, the quarterback is showing obvious signs of an injury.

Belichick: Place on wins list 'flattering'
By: DJ Bean

Patriots coach Bill Belichick made his weekly appearance on the Big Show Tuesday, discussing Monday's win over the Chiefs and the team's upcoming meeting with the Eagles. 

With Monday's 34-3 win over Kansas City Monday, Belichick surpassed former boss Bill Parcells and moved into ninth place on the all-time wins list. Belichick, who now has 184 career wins (including postseason) as a head coach, fondly recalled his days of working with Parcells and said he appreciated where he stands historically. 

"It's flattering to be on the list," Belichick said. "Anything that has to do with winning, I'm proud of. It's nice to be part of a winning statistic. I'll take that any day."

On the topic of defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, Belichick said it's been easy to increase his role over the years because of his willingness to stay on the field. Belichick said that isn't a common characteristic in defensive linemen, but that...

Report: Sox still tried to get Farrell
By: DJ Bean

According to a report from Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox asked the Blue Jays to reconsider their stance after they announced in October that they would not let employees make lateral moves to other organizations. The Blue Jays made their policy change amidst speculation that the Red Sox might be interested in Toronto manager John Farrell for their vacant managerial position.

Rosenthal, who cites major league sources, writes that the Red Sox "have had conversations with the Blue Jays about Farrell since the Jays’ policy shift, asking what it would take for them to reconsider their position."

The report also states that the Red Sox were not optimistic that the talks would go far, and that the discussions "failed to progress." Farrell was the Red Sox' pitching coach from 2007 to 2010...

Wilfork: Edelman 'understands the game'
By: DJ Bean

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork made his weekly appearance on The Big Show Tuesday, discussing Monday's 34-3 victory over the Chiefs and where the Pats stand through 11 weeks of the season.

One bright spot in Monday's victory was Julian Edelman. The third year receiver, who played quarterback at Kent State, played defensive back and linebacker in addition to having a 72-yard punt return for a touchdown. 

"It's funny, because you have Julian going from offense to special teams, to special teams, to defense and defense to special teams," Wilfork said. "He's probably the only guy that's walking from one end to the other end, from one walkthrough to another walkthrough, and it's all different stuff."

"He came in, and he actually put in his work," Wilfork added. "He learned his stuff, what we asked him to do. We don't want to overload his plate much, but he understands the game. He's a football...

Brady on D&C: Gronkowski 'phenomenal'

Just hours after leading the Patriots to a 34-3 rout of the Chiefs, quarterback Tom Brady checked in with Dennis & Callahan Tuesday morning for his weekly discussion.

The Patriots were shut out in the first quarter but found their rhythm shortly thereafter and pulled away for the big win.

"Our execution early on obviously wasn't very sharp. We just weren't on the same page collectively as a group," Brady said. "I thought once we settled into the game and got to the stuff that we felt really good about, we did a much better job of executing. Obviously, that produces points.

"Early on it was just tough. They threw a bunch of different things at us and we were just kind of out of sorts. But I thought we responded well there in the second half. I always say it's hard to win in the NFL. To win 34-3 was pretty good for us coming off really an emotional win against the Jets and then a tough loss at home two weeks ago. Now it...
