Taylor on D&H: Ravens a 'challenge'

Patriots running back Fred Taylor stopped in for a visit with the Dale & Holley show at Gillette Stadium Friday morning to talk about his return to the lineup after a long injury break, as well as Sunday's playoff game against the Ravens. "Considering how long I've been out, I feel great — enthused, motivated. I'm looking forward to some positive stuff happening," Taylor said.

 

Taylor expects Baltimore's physical, aggressive defense to make the Patriots work for every yard. "It's always added motivation to know you're playing a defense of that caliber," Taylor said. "For us, it's going to be a challenge. We're ready for it."

Schefter on D&C: 'Don't trust' SD

ESPN's Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about this weekend's NFL playoff games. Schefter picked the Patriots, Bengals, Cowboys and Packers to win this weekend, and he talked about how the playoffs should be wide open. Said Schefter: "I've heard Baltimore mentioned as a team that basically lost so many close games this year that if they could just get in the playoffs, you wipe the slate clean and they start over and that might be a real dangerous team. Then you hear other people talk about New England, with all the experience it has and some of the key parts it has, and they're dangerous. ... Every team has an element of dangerousness, that's why they're in the playoffs."

 

As for which teams appear headed to the Super Bowl, "At the start of the season, my prediction was San Diego vs. Green Bay, which I feel pretty good about. There's no reason to switch off...

Trainer: Lowell on a mission

According to Mike Lowell's trainer, Ron Yacoub, the Red Sox third baseman is showing much-improved mobility after getting a chance to strengthen his surgically repaired right hip throughout the offseason. “No question about it. There’s no question,” said the trainer when asked if the Red Sox will be getting a much more mobile Lowell when spring training roles around. “It’s already played itself out. You can tell his demeanor is different. He was dealing with so much pain last season. It just takes a toll on you. Mentally, physically and emotionally, you’re just worn out. It’s just different this time.” Yacoub also noted that Lowell has taken on a different demeanor this offseason compared to the previous years in which the pair have worked together. "This year he has been on a mission. I could tell. He’s been coming in 4-5 times a week. He’s been on a mission to show he’s healthy...

Watson: 'Cherish' Patriots experience

Patriots tight end Ben Watson made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about Sunday's game against the Ravens. Watson was asked about the difference between the regular season and playoffs. "The biggest thing is the energy level, it's totally different, it's on a whole other level — the excitement, even in the stadium, driving up, the fans. And the game, it's such a faster pace than the regular season," Watson said. "You go through a long season, and it's funny, because we were watching film earlier, you can see how the game kind of slows down as the season goes on and guys kind of get beat up. But then when the playoffs get here, it's kind of like everybody gets a second wind and the speed picks back up."

 

Watson was asked about playing what could be his final game as a Patriot. "It's something you definitely think about," Watson said. "You definitely want to...
