Bruschi on D&H: Should have punted
By: admin

Former Patriots linebacker and current ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi visited with the Dale & Holley Show on Tuesday to discuss the Patriots’ 35-34 loss to the Colts and the role played by New England head coach Bill Belichick’s decision to go for it on fourth-and-2 from the Patriots 28-yard line. Bruschi reiterated his stance that Belichick did not make the right call.

“I think the right call was to punt,” said Bruschi. “I think we all know when we talk about that fourth-and-2, that’s the situation that the whole game revolves around and the topic that needs to be discussed.

Bruschi said that the Patriots defensive players should have been upset by Belichick’s decision. Indeed, the former linebacker said that it was productive for the defensive players to feel as if they had been slighted by the decision, even though he did not expect there to be any hangover following the game.

Report: C's approached about Nocioni

WALTHAM  --  While the Celtics hit the practice court again today in preparation for the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, the team is involved in a discussions regarding a three-way trade to bring power Sacramento forward Andres Nocioni to Boston, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. Nocioni, a 6-7 sharp-shooting forward, will turn 30 later this month. But the report indicates the discussions are only preliminary and the Celtics would likely be unwilling to take on the remaining $20 million guaranteed through the 2011-12 season.

Brady on D&C: 'I wasn't surprised'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning and discussed the controversial finish to Sunday night's 35-34 loss to the Colts. Brady said that despite how it may have appeared on TV, he was not confused by the decision to go for it on fourth-and-2 from the New England 28 with 2:08 remaining.

 

"I wasn't surprised," Brady said. "I was running off the field and the punt team was running on the field, and they were waving us back out there, so I was just trying to figure out what we were doing. It wasn't like I was surprised that we were going for it. I thought this was the best opportunity for us to win the game. It really was. We have a very good offense. We have two downs to pick up two yards. If you're to tell me that we're going to play the Colts, and we have to pick up two yards on two downs to win the game, I'd say I like our chances. So, hindsight is always 20-20....

Stranded: Islanders beat the B's

Matt Moulson scored twice while Richard Park assisted on all three goals as the New York Islanders beat the Bruins, 4-1, at TD Garden on Monday night. Dwayne Roloson allowed only a Daniel Paille goal in the second period that tied the game, 1-1. But Moulson scored with 1:11 remaining in the second to give the Islanders the lead for good. The 40-year-old goalie, who couldn't protect a 3-0 third-period lead in Boston's 4-3 OT win on Oct. 10 in the same building, stopped 28 of 29 shots Monday. Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask faced just 21 shots on the night. For more, visit the Big Bad Blog
