Branch on M&M: Jets' Revis 'has it all'

Patriots receiver Deion Branch joined the Mut & Merloni show from Gillette Stadium as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday to recap Sunday's 31-19 victory over the Raiders.

Branch said that Oakland's O.co Coliseum lived up to its reputation as a tough venue for visiting teams.

"I promise you, we couldn't hear a thing in the first quarter," Branch said. "We could hear not one play Tom [Brady] was calling in the huddle. … We almost went back to the old days, where the quarterback gets in the middle and takes a knee and everybody just circles around. It was so loud. But it was a great atmosphere. And we knew that going into the game. We knew it."

Next up for the Patriots is a game against the rival Jets on Sunday in Foxboro.

"This is a very important game," Branch said. "We've got to go out have a great week of practice. Like I said, all this stuff starts in practice."

MacMullan on D&C: Youk 'part of the solution'

ESPN's Jackie MacMullan checked in with Dennis & Callahan to comment about Kevin Youkilis, who defended himself on WAAF's Hill-Man Morning Show Monday morning after MacMullan's column last week criticized him for being part of the chemistry problem in the Red Sox clubhouse.

"I didn't expect Kevin to say, 'Wow, Jackie, you're right.' I would expect that that was something that would bother him. It bothered me," MacMullan said. "He's right about one thing. Not three days, but I was only in that clubhouse over that final month about five days. And to me, what that tells you guys is how obvious it was. It didn't take very long to get a feeling of what was going on in there.

"I like Kevin Youkilis," MacMullan continued. "I still believe he's part of the solution. I don't like what's happened. You write something...

Youkilis: 'I have no issue with Jacoby'

Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis made an appearance on WAAF's Hill-Man Morning Show Monday morning and discussed recent reports of discord and misbehavior in the Red Sox clubhouse.

In a Jackie MacMullan story on ESPN last week about the Sox' implosion, Youkilis was named as one of the players who negatively affected the team's chemistry. Wrote MacMullan: "He turned so sour and cynical that his carping and insistence on inserting himself into other people's affairs turned him into a detriment."

MacMullan also referenced Youkilis' critical comments last season about an injured Jacob Ellsbury deciding to rehab on his own in Arizona rather than work with the team's physical therapists in Fort Myers, Fla., or travel with his teammates and work out with the major league staff.

Wrote MacMullan: "[Youkilis] continued, as recently as...

Report: C's Bradley nears deal in Israel

Celtics backup point guard Avery Bradley is close to signing a deal with the Israel Premier League's Hapoel Jerusalem squad, according to a Yahoo! Sports report. The agreement that could come as early as this week would include the all-important NBA opt-out clause.

The 20-year-old Bradley averaged 1.7 points, 0.5 rebounds and 0.4 assists in just 5.2 minutes over 31 games this past season. He played nine games for the Maine Red Claws -- the C's NBA Development League affiliate -- averaging 17.1 points, 5.2 assists and 4.8 rebounds in 32.2 minutes. Bradley recently participated in the Impact Basketball Competitive Training Series in Las Vegas.

Rosenthal on D&C: Will Sox overreact again?

Fox Sports baseball reporter Ken Rosenthal joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to address the issues with the Red Sox that led to the departure of manager Terry Francona after eight seasons.

"It doesn't look good, no question about it," Rosenthal said. "At the same time, I'm not sure all these histrionics are worth their while, starting with the departure of Tito. Listen, all teams have problems in the clubhouse. I would venture to say this stuff was going on in the 2004 and 2007 clubhouse. But back then Tito was winning and not losing. Hey, no problem.

"The real question is, How do you react to all this? And a lot of people in baseball feel they've already overreacted once. The question is, Will they overreact again and allow Theo [Epstein] to leave? Because they control that. They don't have to allow him to leave."

Asked if he thinks Epstein is part of the solution in Boston, Rosenthal replied:...
