Brady on D&C: 'Winning and moving on'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning, as he prepares for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Ravens.

The Patriots are coming off a 45-10 rout of the Broncos on Saturday night, a game in which Brady faced little pressure from Denver's defensive line.

"We had great protection, there's no question about that," Brady said. "I thought those guys played well, really as they have all year. The offensive line has been our biggest strength on offense. It was that way in the regular season and it continues to be that in the playoffs. It was a great effort by those guys, and really all those guys that stepped in and moved spots. Logan [Mankins] is in there, and then Logan's not in there and other guys are adjusting. But they all played really exceptionally well, both in the run game and pass game. We'll have a good week of practice and face our toughest...

Reports: O'Brien hires Pats assistant Godsey

According to multiple reports, new Penn State head football coach, and current Patriots offensive coordinator, Bill O'Brien has hired Pats offensive assistant George Godsey to become the Nittany Lions' quarterback coach. The 33-year-old Godsey is the only member of the New England staff to follow O'Brien to his new position.

Godsey served as a quarterback for Georgia Tech while O'Brien was coaching as the Yellow Jackets' offensive coordinator during the 2001 season. Before coming to the Patriots, Godsey coached at Central Florida from 2004-10.

O'Brien is expected to call his own plays for the Nittany Lions, who will go without an offensive coordinator.

Sox sign Saltalamacchia for $2.5 million

The Red Sox agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed for 2012 with Jarrod Saltalamacchia, avoiding salary arbitration for the second-time arbitration eligible catcher. According to an industry source, the deal is for $2.5 million.

Saltalamacchia appeared in 103 games for the Sox last year, all but two of which were as a catcher. The 26-year-old played in 103 games in 2011, hitting .235 with a .288 OBP, .450 slugging mark and .737 OPS while serving as Boston's primary catcher. He showed prodigious raw power, hitting 16 homers with 23 doubles and three triples.

Saltalamacchia, who was acquired at the 2010 trade deadline from the Rangers, had three distinct segments in his first full season in Boston. He got off to a horrendous start, playing in 10 of the Sox' first 12 games and hitting .138 with a .219 OBP, .172 slugging mark and .391 OPS while also struggling defensively. That, in turn, led the Sox to redistribute playing time; Saltalamacchia, who...

Pats to meet Ravens in AFC championship

The Patriots will be facing the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC championship game next Sunday (3 p.m. on WEEI 93.7 FM) after the Ravens' 20-13 win over the Houston Texans in Baltimore. It will a rematch from the teams' wild card round matchup two years ago in Foxboro, in which Baltimore topped the Pats, 33-14, before being eliminated the following week by Indianapolis.

It was the fourth straight time the Ravens have won their playoff opener, and marked the sixth win in as many meetings against Houston. Baltimore finished the game without a single penalty or turnover.

The Texans' best hope at tying the game was snuffed out by Baltimore safety Ed Reed, who intercepted a T.J. Yates' pass at the Ravens' 4-yard-line with 1:51 left in the game. Houston's final chance ended when Yates' Hail Mary pass with 11 seconds was broken up at the Baltimore goal-line. Reed had to be helped off the field after the play, seemingly injuring his left foot.
