Harrison on D&H: Pats need Watson

NBC Sports NFL analyst Rodney Harrison made an appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday morning to talk about the Wes Welker injury and Sunday's playoff game against the Ravens. "I'm definitely taking the Patriots," Harrison said of Sunday's matchup. "I just feel like Baltimore time and time again in big games has shot themselves in the foot, has self-destructed. They have a decent defense, but it's not the defense we're used to seeing. And the Patriots don't lose at home."

 

Harrison had a similar injury to Welker's when he played for the Patriots, and he knows what's ahead for Welker. "It's more of a mental hurdle, especially a guy like him who is used to moving around," Harrison said, adding that watching teammates in the playoffs can be mentally draining: "It's absolutely devastating, because you want to go out there."

 

Harrison said the Patriots will miss Welker "...

Olney on D&H: Right move by Sox

ESPN baseball writer Buster Olney spoke with the Dale & Holley Show Wednesday morning. Olney said the Red Sox did well with their signing of Adrian Beltre. "He is without a doubt regarded as the best defensive third baseman in baseball right now," Olney said. "Given the alternative, that was a great call for the Red Sox [to focus on defense]."

 

Regarding the Red Sox vs. the Yankees, "I think it's a flip of the coin between the two teams right now," Olney said. "I think the Yankees are going to be at greater risk of injuries and age issues, because it's such an old team."

 

Discussing the Matt Holliday signing, Olney said the Cardinals overpaid and it will hurt them when Albert Pujols comes due for a new contract. Said Olney: "It surprised me that they ended up giving in in a way that even the New York Mets didn't [with Jason Bay]."
