FOXBORO -- Tom Brady had one of the best months of his career in December. Now, the NFL has recognized him for it.

 

For the fourth time in his career, Brady has earned AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors as he was named AFC Offensive Player of the Month for December on Thursday. Brady led the Patriots to a 4-0 record, including back-to-back 300-yard games, with 326 yards and four touchdowns in a 45-3 win vs. the Jets on Dec. 6 and a 369-yard effort with two touchdowns in snowy conditions in a 36-7 win at Chicago on Dec. 12.

 

Brady, who led the NFL with 36 touchdown passes, threw 11 touchdowns, the best among all NFL quarterbacks. Brady also attempted 136 of his NFL record 335 consecutive pass attempts without an interception in the month.

Next for Shaq: Snowball Shaq Attack

Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal, in an interview with the Dale & Holley Show, said that he has been plotting his next major event in the Boston area. In the aftermath of his journey to Harvard Square as the "Shaq-tue" and his evening serving as conductor of the Boston Pops, O'Neal now would like to serve as a giant target for frozen weapons.

 

"I’m going to stand in the middle of the field, I’m going to move, and people can stand 30 feet back and try to hit me with a snowball," said O'Neal. "We will call it the Snowball Shaq Attack."

 

He also suggested that he would like magician Criss Angel ("Mindfreak") to levitate him above TD Garden for 10 minutes.

 

O'Neal also discussed topics related to the composition of the Celtics. Among them:

 

--He described teammate Rajon Rondo as "probably No. 1" among the point guards who...

Pats practice: Connolly back to full contact

FOXBORO -- Patriots starting right guard Dan Connolly shed his protective non-contact red jersey on Thursday as the Patriots continued full-contact practice in full pads in their bye week. 

 

Connolly missed the final two games of the season after suffering a concussion during the same Green Bay game in which he returned a kick-off a record 71 yards. Danny Woodhead and Dan Koppen remained in the non-contact red jerseys at practice on the lower practice field outside Gillette Stadium. 

 

Missing from practice were Mike Wright, Jermaine Cunningham, Sebastian Vollmer and Aaron Hernandez at Patriots practice. For more, visit the Patriots team page at weei.com/patriots and the blog It Is What It Is

Wilfork: 'We have to prepare better'

FOXBORO --  Whether it's the Super Bowl XLII loss in Arizona or last year's home playoff loss to Baltimore, Patriots defensive captain Vince Wilfork on Thursday repeated the mantra of the 2010 Patriots - the past is the past. 

 

"Every year is a new year and I think that's what we've done a great job with this year, putting the past behind us," Wilfork said when asked if recent disappoints fuel the desire of this team. "Guys who were here for that, we don't think about it. But at the same time, we hate to lose and we were on the losing of the stick but we have to prepare better and I think with a new year and a new season and guys in here who don't know what playoffs are all about, we have to do a real good job of getting guys ready to play whatever football team it may be. Whoever it is, it's going to be a good team. 

 

"We let the past be the past be the past and hopefully we can get...
