McDaniels on Belichick: 'I'll always be indebted to him'

FOXBORO — Josh McDaniels took time Wednesday to thank Bill Belichick for his quick rise up the NFL coaching ladder, which now has him as head coach of the 4-0 Denver Broncos. "He's been the biggest influence on my success and I'll always be indebted to him," McDaniels said during a conference call with New England reporters. "Bill has helped me out in many different ways, in terms of my knowledge about the game, in terms of my understanding of the things you need to do as an organization to be successful. He's helped me out in personal areas of my life. There's a lot of things Bill has helped me with. I've had a lot of conversations with him and some of which I'll definitely keep to myself."

Champ on Moss: 'He never lollygags'

FOXBORO — During a Wednesday conference call with New England reporters, perennial Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey laughed at the notion that Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss takes certain plays off. "He never lollygags," the Broncos cornerback said. "That's the thing. People don't really understand the game. He blocks. I wouldn't say he's the greatest blocker, but he does it. He loves to find ways to set you up. Since I played him the first time, he's one of the best I've ever seen. He's in his 12th season, but he plays like he's 25 years old again."

Francona on D&H: Big Papi is owed an apology

Red Sox manager Terry Francona checked in with Dale & Holley to talk about the upcoming ALDS against the Angels. Francona touched on a number of topics, including what he viewed as unfair treatment of David Ortiz earlier this season.

 

"I think there's a lot of people that actually owe David an apology," Francona said. "Having an opinion is one thing. And everybody's supposed to, I understand that. But there were some pretty nasty opinions. And some pretty vocal: 'He ought to quit. He ought to go home.' His first two months were miserable. I mean, they were flat-out miserable. His last four months have been just about as good as anybody in the game. So, that's just not righting the shift. That's a pretty good pace. He had a chance his last at-bat, if he could have found a way to get a hit, to have a hundred RBIs. From where he started, that was incredible."

 

Francona said he has not finalized...

Report: Seau will join Pats next week

The Patriots are going to sign veteran linebacker Junior Seau next week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
