Patriots running back Sammy Morris and tight end Chris Baker joined Dale & Holley Monday morning before beginning their offseason following Sunday's playoff loss to the Ravens. Both players addressed whether this team was mentally tough enough to be successful. "I would say it's more of a consistency thing than being mentally tough," Baker said, specifically referring to the Patriots' second-half struggles this season. "You've got to be mentally tough to play here. I think [Bill Belichick] prides himself on making his teams mentally tough." Added Morris: "We had times of being mentally tough, obviously we lacked in that area as well. ... I think we've shown both sides of that."
Baker was dismissive of comments by Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis that he was able to figure out what plays Tom Brady was calling. "I don't believe that at all," Baker said. "There's no way they knew the plays. We do a...
FOXBORO — As the Patriots cleaned out their lockers on Monday morning at Gillette Stadium, one of the players at the center of a sometimes tumultuous season summed up the season that ended with Sunday's 33-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. "It was an unusual year. You take the good with the bad and move on," Adalius Thomas said. The linebacker was also asked about Tom Brady's comments on Dennis & Callahan suggesting there needs to be improved leadership inside the locker room. "Obviously, I think more people could have led. I don't who, but that's not my place. Different people lead in different ways and so, I can't sit here and say leadership did this or should've done that. If that's how he feels, that's how he feels." For more, including audio from Thomas, Steve Gostkowski and Dan Koppen inside the Patriots locker room, visit the football blog...
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his final weekly appearance of the season on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about Sunday's playoff loss to the Ravens. "Not a lot of us probably got a whole lot of sleep last night," Brady said. "It's obviously a disappointing way to end the season for all of us. Anytime it ends, it's tough to swallow. And certainly the way we played yesterday, no one likes to go out like that. It's just one of those days where we didn't put our best out there. If you're going to beat the good teams, you've got to play well. We just didn't."
Brady was asked if the changes in his personal life in 2009 affected his commitment to the team. Responded Brady: "The guys who really know that answer are the guys that I play with. I love the game and I love playing and I love working hard for it. For me, there's not a lot of things going on in my life, as funny as that sounds,...
