Morris on D&H: 'A Catch-22' for Indy

Patriots running back Sammy Morris checked in with the Dale & Holley show Monday morning and weighed in on the Colts pulling their starters in their first loss of the season yesterday, ending their run at an undefeated campaign. Morris sympathized with first-year Colts coach Jim Caldwell. "If coach Caldwell decided to play his starters and one of those guys got hurt, then he'd be an idiot," Morris said. "But he pulled them, so now they're saying that he quit. It's a Catch-22. There's no winning that. ... You try to keep the end goal in perspective without forsaking what's going on now, which is a difficult task."

 

As for the Patriots' approach to Sunday's game against the Texans, Morris deferred to his coaches. "Whatever the coaches decide is how I'm going to approach it," he said. "I have trust in our coaches that whatever they decide will be the best for the team."

Warren on D&H: No 'laying down'

Patriots defensive lineman Ty Warren made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Monday morning. Warren talked about the team's upcoming game against the Texans and whether the Patriots would play their starters after already having clinched the AFC East title. "Ultimately, that's the coach's decision to make," Warren said. "But in no way, shape or form do we plan on just laying down just because."

 

Warren also commented on the Colts losing yesterday for the first time this season after pulling Peyton Manning in the third quarter. That left the Patriots as the only team to post a 16-0 record in the regular season. "I can't say that a smirk didn't come on my face there, and for the Saints a week ago," Warren said. "Looking at the game yesterday, I don't think there's a player on that team that didn't want to go 16-0. ... Peyton looked like he was about to cry."

Brady on D&C: Can't argue with Colts

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about Sunday's victory over the Jaguars. "It feels good to win like that," he said. "It's been a long time since we had a real convincing win, and I thought we played well in all three areas of the game. I think that gives everyone really a lot of confidence of what we're capable of here in these meaningful games. It was a great performance all the way around."

 

Brady also talked about the Colts' undefeated season coming to an end with Sunday's loss to the Jets, a game in which Indianapolis started pulling its starters in the third quarter. "I watched a little bit of it yesterday, and I think every team has a different philosophy," Brady said. "They made their decision, and it's hard to argue with those guys. They've got a great coach. I just saw bits and pieces of the game. I hate seeing the...
