Julien: Krejci must 'find his game'

Speaking after Bruins practice Wednesday, B's coach Claude Julien said that David Krejci's game needs to be elevated after the forward's battle with the H1N1 virus last week. “His game is certainly not where it should be,” Julien said. “That’s up to him to work through it. He’s at that stage where he needs to find his game and work through the glitches that he seems to have right now." Krejci didn't disagree with the assessment, citing his legs being "a little out of shape." For more on Krejci and more Bruins news, see the Big Bad Blog.

Colvin on D&H: Brady Over Manning

Former Patriots linebacker Rosevelt Colvin was interviewed on the Dale & Holley Show on Wednesday afternoon. He broke down several facets of this coming Sunday’s Patriots-Colts game, among them the changes in the Colts this year, how to wage psychological warfare against the Colts, the distinction between Peyton Manning being “a sissy” and playing smart when taking sacks, and why he believes that Pats quarterback Tom Brady is better than Manning.
 
"If I have Tom Brady in -2 degree whether or if I have Tom Brady in 108 degree weather, same guy. If I have Tom Brady when it’s raining or inside or outside, same guy," said Colvin. "If I’ve got Peyton, and it’s raining and sloppy, there’s a chance he might get a little frustrated, a little upset at his offensive line, start saying things that he shouldn’t say, and then you’d have an issue on your hands. You can’t take that...

Red Sox still waiting on Varitek

CHICAGO -- Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein stopped to offer some updates regarding team-related items before heading out of the general managers meetings:

 

-- There still is no word on Jason Varitek, who has until midnight to activate his $3 million player option. The deadline is such since the Red Sox had informed the catcher that they wouldn't be picking up the $5 million team option last Friday.

 

-- Epstein met with Varitek's agent, Scott Boras, for approximately 30 minutes Tuesday night, during which time the catcher was the primary topic of conversation.

 

-- Epstein talked with Billy Wagner's agent, Bean Stringfellow, Tuesday night regarding the reliever's openness to accepting arbitration if/when the Sox offer it. The Red Sox would be open to having Wagner back, but on terms that would allow his contract to fit in the construct of their roster. There is no level the Sox would have to adhere...

Rodney wants Pats to 'kick some butt'

Rodney Harrison apparently still bleeds the red, white and blue of the Patriots. During a national conference call to discuss this Sunday night's huge game, Harrison, in his first year as an NBC analyst, said he is hoping the Patriots come out on top. 

 

"Hopefully, the Patriots can go out and kick some butt," Harrison said.

 

Representing the Colts is former coach Tony Dungy, who like Harrison, is in his first year removed from the rivalry. "[New England] reminds me of where we were last year," Dungy said. "We were 3-4 last year but we didn't see ourselves as a 3-4 team."

Brady: I talked to Peyton about knee

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady acknowledged this morning that he called Peyton Manning following his reconstructive ACL surgery in October 2008. "I called him and said, 'Tell me about the knee. That's a true story,' " Brady recalled during his press conference at Gillette Stadium. Manning, like Brady, had to deal with a knee infection.
