Belichick: 'Our whole team can improve'

Patriots coach Bill Belichick made his weekly appearance on The Big Show to discuss his team's victory over the Colts on Sunday, as well as the challenges of the upcoming game in Detroit on Thursday.


Asked whether his defense needed to rely on big plays at this point or if it was possibility that the Patriots could do a better and more consistent job of shutting down opposing offenses, Belichick suggested that there is basis for optimism with the group but grounds for improvement.


"I hope our whole team can improve over the next six weeks. We’ve got a lot of practices and a lot of meetings. I hope we get something out of that," said Belichick. "The big thing is that we, in every game, have shown the ability to play well at times and do the things we need to do. We just haven’t done it for the whole 60 minutes. That’s been true offensively as well. We’ve had some great...

Savard could be cleared for contact Tuesday
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center Marc Savard told reporters Monday that he will see a Pittsburgh concussion specialist (either Mark Lovell or Michael Collins, according to various reports), whom he called "the guru of concussions" and undergo the final test required to be cleared for full-contact on Tuesday. Savard joined his teammates in practice for the first time during Saturday's morning skate, but is still unable to give and receive contact.


"I guess it's quite a test," Savard said. "It's like six hours long. He's going to put me through some workouts and some strenuous stuff. When I'm at my weakest, he can see how my brain is and stuff like that. I'm interested. I'm really excited about going."


Savard said he is "still going to be a bit away" from playing even if he passes the test. He has not played this season as he recovers from post-concussion syndrome.

Reds slugger Votto cruises to NL MVP

Cincinnati Reds slugger Joey Votto was a near-unanimous winner of the National League MVP Award, ending the two-year run of Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols.


Votto received 31 of 32 first-place votes, claiming the honor on the strength of a season in which the 27-year-old hit .324 while leading the National League with a .424 OBP, .600 slugging mark and 1.024 OPS while clubbing 37 homers and driving in 113. Those numbers on a playoff-bound Reds team were deemed sufficient by the 32 voters to give Votto the nod over runner-up Pujols (.312/.414/.596/1.010 with an NL-high 42 homers, 118 RBI and 115 runs) and third-place finisher Carlos Gonzalez of the Rockies (NL-leading .336 average en route to a .336/.376/.598/.974 line with 34 homers and 117 RBI). Pujols received the only other first-place vote.


Padres slugger Adrian Gonzalez finished in fourth place, while Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki finished in fifth....

Brady on D&C explains tirade at ref

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning for his weekly visit as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday. Brady said he understands the Patriots made plenty of mistakes in their 31-28 victory over the Colts, but the end result is the key. "I've been around long enough to know that a win is a win is a win," he said.


Brady said the Patriots' main problems in the second half Sunday dealt with their performance on third down. "Ultimately, it comes down to execution on third down," he said. "That's why you stay on the field. That's why you end up getting the ball in the end zone. I don't think it had anything to do with play-calling, I thought it had to do with execution. ... It just shows you at the end of the game, if you don't convert third downs when it really counts, then a team like that is capable of coming back."


Brady almost threw a disastrous...
