Brady: Welker 'is huge part of offense'

FOXBORO -- In a clear effort to diffuse any controversy about the lack of production from Wes Welker on Sunday, Tom Brady said Wednesday that it's important to keep things in perspective. Welker was targeted just five times in 31 pass attempts, catching three passes for 14 yards. 

"I'm not sure," Brady said. "Every week is a little bit different. So, there's different opportunities on different weeks for different players. I think the thing that's important to remember is that it's a 16-game season so you start getting up there and play 600 or 700 plays every year, when you need it most you've got to be fresh. I think that goes for all of us.

"There's really a fine line because you're not pacing yourself by any stretch but at the same time, look it's Week 1. We've got a lot of football to play and we're going to need everybody. There's going to be games where Wes has not as many opportunities and there are going to be games...

Valentine called 'needed' team meeting

Just more than an hour before the Red Sox series-opening game against the Yankees Tuesday, Sox manager Bobby Valentine held a team meeting to reiterate the importance of playing the right way for the final 21 games.

"Nobody really knew what was going on," said Red Sox outfielder Cody Ross. "We just got together. It was just really positive, and needed. … It was positive. We have 2 1/2 weeks left and the season hasn't been what we thought it would be, so we can go out and play hard, win ball games and stay positive."

The meeting wasn't the first called by Valentine this season, with the manager having addressed the team in a much more pointed get-together June 19 prior to sweeping the Marlins in a three-game home series.

The end result of this meeting was a 4-3, walk-off win for the Red Sox, with Jacoby Ellsbury being mobbed by his teammates after claiming a ninth-inning single, scoring Pedro Ciriaco with the game-...

Notre Dame to depart Big East for ACC

Notre Dame will join the ACC as a full member in all sports except football and hockey, the league announced Wednesday morning.

In football, the Irish will remain independent but will play five games against ACC opponents each season.

The ACC does not have a hockey league, and Notre Dame is expected to join Hockey East for that sport.

"The ACC was founded on the cornerstones of balancing academics, athletics and integrity," ACC commissioner John Swofford said in a statement. "Our partnership with Notre Dame only strengthens this long-standing commitment. Notre Dame enhances the league's unique blend of public and private institutions that are international in scope. The collective alumni and fan bases cover the entire country with exceptionally strong roots up and down the Atlantic Coast. This is a terrific milestone in the evolution of the ACC and showcases tremendous solidarity and vision by our Council of Presidents....

Remy on D&C: 'It's possible' Bobby V returns

NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning, following Tuesday night's walk-off victory over the Yankees.

"It was finally fun to be at the ballpark and to watch them walk off with a win, especially against the Yankees," Remy said. "I felt good for them because they've been through such terrible times, obviously. To have a game like that, to be able to get a walk-off win and knock the Yankees a game [back] to tie for first place was kind of fun to watch. We haven't had many of those. It kind of reminded you of what it should be around here."

Remy predicted that the Red Sox will be a contender next season, dismissing thoughts that 2013 will be a rebuilding year. Looking at the Bobby Valentine situation, Remy speculated that the manager could get another chance.

"I wouldn't be surprised if he's back," Remy said, adding: "It's just a hunch. I...

Wakefield on D&C: 'Chalk it up to an off year'

Former Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield joined Dennis & Callahan on Wednesday morning to discuss the struggles of his old team.

"It's one of those years where just nothing's gone right at all," said Wakefield, who retired prior to the season. "It started off with injuries. You look at the lineup, one through five, they never had the one through five guys they wanted, from [Jacoby] Ellsbury down to David Ortiz, [Carl] Crawford -- everybody's been hurt all year. So, it's kind of been tough to have any kind of solidity in that lineup."

Added Wakefield: "They didn't play very good baseball, obviously. But they just couldn't get things rolling this year."

Asked about Bobby Valentine, the part-time NESN analyst questioned a recent comment the manager made.

"The thing that kind of through me for a loop -- and I was up there doing the games this weekend -- is that he said something in an interview that [on...
