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...

Belichick: 'Obviously, I did a poor job'

Bill Belichick reserved the harshest criticism for himself and his coaching staff following a 34-10 drubbing at the hands of the Lions Saturday night at Ford Field in Detroit. 

“No question who the better team was tonight," Belichick said following the Patriots' first preseason loss of the year. "Obviously, I did a poor job of having the team ready to play. We didn’t really do anything very well in any phase of the game, certainly not good enough to win. The Lions are good team, they played well and Jim [Schwartz] did a great job with his team. They were a lot more efficient, a lot more ready to play and played a hell of a lot better than our team did."

Tom Brady had a rough night, completing just 12-of-22 passes with a touchdown and an interception. Brady was roughed up by the Lions' front four all night long. The Patriots secondary was scorched by Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford for three passing plays of over...

Mane pain: Lions clobber Brady, Pats

In a stark contrast to the opening two weeks of the preseason, nearly everything that could go wrong did Saturday night as the Patriots were routed by a hungry Lions team, 34-10, at Ford Field in Detroit. 

Tom Brady was hurried, hit six times, sacked once and pressured all night by an aggressive Lions defensive line, completing just 12-of-22 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown, with one interception. The interception was a costly one, as he threw down the left sideline for just before halftime and it was picked off by Ricardo Silva. Wes Welker came up, lowered his head and made a tackle, taking Silva to the field turf. Welker walked off the field and left the game with a neck injury. 

Brady's only highlight was a 44-yard TD pass to Welker in the second quarter that cut Detroit's lead to 17-10 at the time. Welker finished with three catches for 71 yards while Chad Ochocinco was targeted four more times by Brady and Brian Hoyer but...

Cleaning up: Sox sweep pair from A's

Though it took 11 hours, the Red Sox were rewarded for a long, rain-soaked day at Fenway Park with a doubleheader sweep of the Athletics. After a 9-3 win in the first contest of the day, the Sox claimed a 4-0 victory in the nightcap, with David Ortiz doing the damage early and the bullpen making the advantage stand up.

Ortiz slammed a two-run homer (his 27th) in the bottom of the second inning, and the Sox later added a pair of runs on a pair of RBIs by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia (one on a groundout, another on a double). Ortiz, meanwhile, followed a 2-for-4 day game in which he ripped two doubles with a 3-for-4 nightcap that included the homer and two singles.

The Sox DH is amidst one of his finest runs in memory. During a 12-game hitting streak dating to Aug. 7 (and prior to suffering bursitis that had him down for nine games), Ortiz is hitting .522 (24-for-46) with six homers, 14 RBIs, a .577 OBP, a 1.043 slugging mark and a 1.620 OPS.
