Schefter on D&C: Rush was a 'ruse'

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter checked in for his weekly interview on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. Schefter talked about the Patriots' offensive woes and when things might improve for Tom Brady and Co. The quarterback still is adjusting to first-year play-caller Bill O'Brien, who took over when Josh McDaniels left to coach the Broncos.


"It's only natural that Tom is not as comfortable right now with Billy O'Brien," Schefter said. "You'd like to think over time that they will develop that rapport that Tom had with Josh."


Schefter also discussed Rush Limbaugh's aborted bid to be part of the ownership group of the St. Louis Rams.


"There are people around the league who suggested to me this week that this was all one big ruse anyway, and that it was all much ado about nothing, and Rush's attempt to generate publicity," Schefter said. "He got ultimately...

Wakefield's back surgery set

Tim Wakefield is set to undergo surgery on a herniated disc in his back Wednesday. Wakefield has said that doctors told him that the procedure would not hinder his preparation for next season. It is expected if the surgery goes as planned that the Red Sox will pick up the pitcher's $4 million team option. "Wake is someone that is in our plans and we hope makes starts for us next year and is a member of the rotation," Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said during his Monday press conference. "We haven’t sat down and finalized anything. Obviously, we want to see how the surgery goes and then both sides will sit down and talk.” In other Red Sox medical news, infielder Nick Green, who battled a slipped disc in his back in the season's final month, will be examined next week with the possibility of undergoing surgery.

Watson on D&C: 'Junior is just special'

Patriots tight end Ben Watson made an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show to talk about Sunday's game against the winless Titans. Watson addressed the troubles of the New England offense and quarterback Tom Brady.


"It's going to come at some point," Watson said. "We have all the confidence in the world in ourselves and all the confidence in Tom."


Watson also talked about the return of linebacker Junior Seau and what it means to the team.


"He just brings a lot of energy," Watson said. "A guy like Junior is just special. ... Guys on both side of the ball look at him and try to glean what they can from him."
