Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork stopped by to visit with Dale & Holley at Gillette Stadium on Monday morning as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday, one day after a 28-18 victory over the Vikings.
Wilfork was emotional after the Patriots stuffed the Vikings on fourth-and-goal just before the end of the first half. "All year we say we want to play well in the red area, goal line we want to be good, and short yardage we want to be good," Wilfork said. "So, a great opportunity for us right there to step up. We had one earlier, a third-and-goal, and I still don't think he scored, but it is what it is. So, we had another chance to come back and make a stop, especially on fourth down. You know what? The guys did a real good job on that play, just basically swarming to the ball, getting to the ball — like I said, we knew [Adrian Peterson] was going to get it — and just walked away. They didn't come up with any...
CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning. Esiason praised BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead for their performances in the Patriots' win over the Vikings on Sunday, and he said the Patriots have earned their spot atop the AFC.
"You're beating the best of the best," Esiason said. "You can't say right now that the New England Patriots aren't the best in the AFC. Their record not only amplifies that, but the teams that they're beating tells you that. Because they've beaten some of the best teams in football."
Esiason said he's not concerned that the Patriots will have a letdown next Sunday when they play the lowly Browns in Cleveland. "The Patriots aren't a normal team," he said. "They don't seem to get too caught up in everything that's going on around them. I guess the coach does a pretty good job of keeping a...

LeBron James told reporters on Sunday that, in retrospect, he would handle the announcement of his free agent decision differently if he had to do it again. However, he didn't get into specifics about what he would do differently, and he made it clear that he is pleased with his move to Miami. The interview occurred while James and the Heat were in New Jersey to play the Nets, and James recalled how he enjoyed meeting with Nets management.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday. With the Patriots beating the Vikings on Sunday to improve to 6-1, Brady said he likes how this team has shown it can win in a variety of ways.
"I think we've won in different ways. I think that's what I'm probably happy about," he said. "We've been down in the fourth quarter, we've protected leads, we won on the road, we won on a Monday night game in Miami, which has always been tough to do. … We're such a long way from where we need to be, though. I'll say that. I don't think anybody on our team goes in there and thinks we've got all the answers."
Vikings receiver Randy Moss was highly complimentary of Bill Belichick and the Patriots after the game. Brady said he understands why Belichick has that affect on players. "Every coach has his own style,...
