Billick on D&C: Suggs 'discredits' Pro Bowl

Fox Sports NFL analyst Brian Billick joined guest hosts Bob Ryan and Chris Mannix on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday to talk about the Patriots and news from around the league.

 

Billick, who formerly coached the Ravens, was asked about Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs' proclamation that he was leaving Tom Brady off his Pro Bowl ballot. Said Billick: "I hate it when the players use something like this, because I think it discredits the rest of those that are deservingly, obviously. in the Pro Bowl. You understand the back and forth; they've been battling each other all year long and it's kind of amusing. But I really do hate to see it come out in this way, because that is something that is important to players."

 

Billick said Brady is his MVP pick, because of how critical he is to the Patriots. "I'm not sure New England without Tom Brady is a playoff-caliber team," he said. "That's the...

Mashup: Tattoo controversy at Ohio State

Some Ohio State football players reportedly are being investigated for allegedly trading signed memorabilia for tattoos from a parlor near the campus in Columbus.

Chiarelli: Julien's job is safe
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said on Wednesday that the team will not relieve coach Claude Julien of his duties this season. The slumping B's have averaged just 1.8 goals over their last five games, a span in which they've won just one game, and some fans have called for a coaching change. Despite the team's struggles, Chiarelli said "yes" when asked on CBS Radio Boston if he would say "unequivocally that Claude Julien's job is not in danger."

 

Chiarelli said such a decision ultimately would have to be made by a group of front-office members, but that he feels the team is better off with Julien than without him. 

 

"That's my preference and that's my recommendation," Chiarelli said. "This is a collective thing that we do on these matters. But I have full confidence in Claude and the staff to figure it out."

 

The Bruins are in eighth place in the...

Pierce: Can't 'let refs get best of you'

Paul Pierce started off the night by missing his first seven shots from the field, including a pair of 3-point attempts. But that's not what caused him to admittedly lose his cool in the third quarter, when he was hit with a technical foul by referee Tony Brothers. Pierce was called for his fourth personal foul, causing him to wave his hand in disgust at Brothers. 

 

"We got frustrated," Pierce admitted. "I got a technical. I know I was frustrated tonight. Just in a game where you're trying to get rhythm and the game is off-balance and calls are being called each and every way. It's hard to get into a rhythm, so I was definitely frustrated."

 

Just 90 seconds earlier, Kevin Garnett was hit with a technical after he picked up his third foul. Two minutes later, Garnett was whistled for his fourth. Nate Robinson also had four fouls heading into the fourth. All three players managed to avoid fouling out...
