Belichick hints Pats won't add to staff

It doesn't appear the Patriots will be adding to their coaching staff any time soon.

Currently, the team is without an offensive and defensive coordinator: Dean Pees left after his contract expired to take a job as linebackers coach with Baltimore, while the team has been operating without an offensive coordinator since the end of the 2008 season when Josh McDaniels left to take the head coaching job in Denver.

And in an interview with Patriots.com on Friday, coach Bill Belichick seemed to indicate that the team has no interest in replacing either one of them right now, at least in title. He expressed confidence in quarterbacks coach Bill O'Brien, who oversaw much of the play-calling in 2009.

“Bill O’Brien has demonstrated excellent leadership and organizational skills in our offense,” Belichick said. “He is a sharp and passionate coach. It is a good mix on that side of the ball, with Bill working...

B's Sturm takes maintenance day

WILMINGTON -- The Bruins practiced on Friday morning at Ristuccia Arena and worked mainly on power-play and goal-screening drills as they prepare to take on the Vancouver Canucks in a Saturday matinee at TD Garden. Marco Sturm did not skate with the team, taking what coach Claude Julien called a "maintenance day." Defenseman Andrew Ference practiced and hopes to return from a groin injury before the break for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, but he remains doubtful.

 

"Just keep taking steps. Stops and starts. Just another baby step," Ference said.

Stallworth to be reinstated by NFL

At his annual Super Bowl-week news conference Friday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Donte' Stallworth will be reinstated from his suspension for killing a pedestrian while driving drunk.

Stallworth, who played for the Patriots in 2007 and went on to sign a free agent deal with the Cleveland Browns, spent 24 days in jail for a DUI manslaughter conviction for an accident occurred that last March in South Florida. He was suspended without pay last August.

Goodell said Stallworth's suspension will be lifted after the Super Bowl on Sunday. Goodell said he met with Stallworth about a month ago, and the receiver is "in a better place than he was." Goodell said Stallworth recognizes what he did and has prepared himself to return to the NFL.

Schefter on D&C: Colts not best ever

ESPN's Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about the Super Bowl. Schefter said injured Colts defensive lineman Dwight Freeney might line up Sunday, but he's not going to be close to full strength. "Dwight Freeney as we know Dwight Freeney is not playing," Schefter said. "If Dwight Freeney is effective in any significant way on Sunday, I will be stunned."

 

Schefter predicted an Indianapolis victory but said the Colts should not be considered as one of the greatest teams of all-time due to the way they handled the end of the regular season. Said Schefter: "They had the chance to be in that discussion, if not lead that discussion, and they opted not be a part of it. That was their decision, not anybody else's. When they pulled their players when they could have gotten to 15-0 in a game [vs. the Jets] they were winning 15-10 when they had the ball, they waved...
