Vikings will wait for Favre
By: DJ Bean

INDIANAPOLIS -- If you think the Vikings' offseason plans are handcuffed by Brett Favre, you may be right. For now, the team will stay the course until the 40 year-old makes a decision regarding a potential 20th professional season. "I'm not going to put him in a box," Vikings coach Brad Childress said Friday at the Scouting Combine.“We have two guys that are currently on the roster with Tarvaris [Jackson] and Sage [Rosenfels]," Childress added. "As I mentioned last year, we were going to be a good football team with Brett and a good football team without him. As it stands right, those guys will be able to able to man that position.” For more from the Combine, check the It Is What It Is blog.

Team USA one win from gold

The U.S. men's hockey team got two goals apiece from Ryan Malone and Patrick Kane on the way to claiming a 6-1 win over Finland, setting up a gold medal game matchup against Canada, Sunday afternoon.

Neely talks Olympic hockey on D&H

Bruins vice president Cam Neely joined Dale & Holley from Vancouver Friday afternoon to talk Olympic hockey, the NHL and the state of the Bruins.

 Neely said he does not think the two-week layoff for the Olympics 
is a good thing for the NHL as a whole. “It doesn’t really promote the 
NHL,” he said. “The individual players get recognition, obviously the 
countries as a team get recognition, but it’s not so much for us.” 


 

Neely also commented on the game’s international rules, chiefly those 
against fighting: “I still like the intimidation factor of, 'If 
I do something, is this guy going to drop his gloves?' I think it gives 
you some checks and balances there.”



 

Neely discussed a potential USA-Canada rematch in Sunday's Olympic 
final. 
Though Neely thinks Canada has the more talented team on paper, the 
play of U.S. goalie Ryan Miller has caught his eye....

Caserio: 'Good' talks with Wilfork

Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio said the “communication has been good” between the franchise and representatives of nose tackle Vince Wilfork as both teams try to reach an agreement on a long-term contract. “I know Mr. Kraft made those statements and we put the statement out the other day,” said Caserio, who was asked about the connection between Wilfork's situation and the new deal signed by Pittsburgh nose tackle Casey Hampton. “I’m not really going to expound too much further. I would say the communication has been good. It’s been ongoing.” Wilfork was franchised by the Patriots earlier in the week, but both teams have expressed hope that they will be able to reach an agreement on a long-term deal for the nose tackle.

Nate on D&C: 'Only God can judge me'

New Celtics guard Nate Robinson was a guest of the Dale & Holley show Friday morning and addressed his falling-out with Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni before he was traded to Boston. "Me and Coach had a great relationship, that's why I'm not really sure what happened," Robinson said. "Coach is a great guy. He's a great coach. He does everything his way. As players, you've definitely got to respect that. And I respected him and his decisions. Him putting me on the bench was his decision. I couldn't argue against it. So, I had to sit there and wait my turn and be patient." Added Robinson: "I didn't seek a trade."

 

Asked about the negative perception many people (including co-host Michael Holley) had of Robinson — at least prior to his arrival in Boston — Robinson said: "Everybody has their own opinion. Me, I'm the type of person I don't really care what people think about me. If you like me or not...
