Belichick: Wait and see on Brady

FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick played the wait-and-see game with Tom Brady when asked about the quarterback's status for this Sunday night's game in Pittsburgh. Brady missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury before returning to only limited participation on Thursday. 


"We'll do the same thing we always do," Belichick said. "We'll practice, go through the week, list his participation in practice based on what it is and list his status for the game just like we do with everybody else's, based on what we think it is after we get through the whole week, after we get through Friday practice. That's really it."


The Boston Globe report that a source indicated Brady was nursing a sprained foot but the injury wouldn't keep him from playing Sunday night. Belichick began the presser by joking about Brady's "throwing foot", a reference to Brady's right shoulder, which has been...

Neal on D&H: 'It's going to be a war'

Patriots offensive lineman Stephen Neal made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday morning as part of WEEI's Patriots Friday. Neal said he didn't want to harp on last Sunday's loss to the Browns. "Each week's a challenge," he said. "Since that challenge is over, you keep looking back there, you're not going to be ready for the next challenge,, which is this week in Pittsburgh, and that's a very good challenge. So, whatever happened last week, last week's over. It's time to move on."


Looking at Sunday night's showdown with the Steelers, Neal expects a memorable evening. "It's going to be a war on Sunday night, man," he said. "I tell you, it's going to be a great place to be on Sunday night. It's going to be some good football being played, some tough football. It should be exciting for the fans."


Neal was complimentary of the Pittsburgh defense. "They...

Schefter on D&C: Bad time for Pats letdown

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. Schefter correctly predicted the Patriots would be upset by the Browns last Sunday, and he said he was the subject of scorn and ridicule prior to the game by fans on Twitter. "The lack of civility sometimes always amazes me," he said.


Schefter said the Patriots picked a bad time for a letdown. "It just seems like it jumps out at you now, playing Pittsburgh and Indy on back-to-back weeks before going to Detroit on Thanksgiving Day before coming home to play the Jets [and then] at Chicago. It just seems like 'Whoa.' And I guess it's accentuated more coming off a loss in Cleveland."


Schefter said he expects the Patriots will bounce back with a strong effort Sunday night, but the Steelers are his pick. "Typically in this league, good teams that come off bad games usually can respond with some...

Boras: Beltre market unprecedented

Scott Boras, the agent for Adrian Beltre, said that the interest in his client has been "vastly more than we ever expected" following the third baseman's performance on a one-year deal with the Red Sox. Beltre hit .321 with a .365 OBP, .553 slugging mark, .919 OPS, 28 homers, 102 RBI and an AL-leading 49 doubles with the Sox in 2010, leading to what Boras described as virtually unprecedented interest in his client.


“I would have to say in my years of doing this, I’ve never had so much interest in one player,” Boras said in an interview with MLB Network Radio's Inside Pitch. “I’m not sure the media quite understands what Boston did for Adrian Beltre. But I think his leadership has come to surface. We’ve had a number of teams contact us, vastly more than we ever expected. We expected a good number certainly, but there are teams wanting to move players to make room for him.”

Boras: Beltre drawing unprecedented interest

Agent Scott Boras, who represents several key free agents this offseason, appeared on MLB Network Radio’s Inside Pitch on Sirius XM Radio. Boras discussed the expected market for several of his clients, including two who are expected to be targets of the Red Sox this winter: third baseman Adrian Beltre, who punctuated his successful season in Boston on Thursday by being named the winner of the Silver Slugger Award as the top third baseman in the American League, and Jayson Werth, the Phillies outfielder whom Boras is pitching as the only player in this year’s free agent class who is a middle-of-the-order hitter capable of playing any outfield position. (He noted that Carl Crawford hit roughly half the homers of Werth over the last three years, making him more of a top-of-the-order hitter.)


Boras compared Werth to former Red Sox outfielder Dwight Evans, while positioning Beltre...
