Banta-Cain on D&H: 'Did what we had to do'

Patriots linebacker Tully Banta-Cain stopped by for a visit with the Dale & Holley show Monday afternoon at Gillette Stadium as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday.

 

Banta-Cain was called for having his hands on the facemask of Packers offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga while rushing the passer with 3:30 remaining in Sunday night's game. While the 15-yard penalty nullified a Patriots interception, Banta-Cain said he didn't let it bother him. "I kept a positive attitude and I really wasn't thinking of what the outcome would be had we lost and that had been the reason why," he said.

 

Banta-Cain ended up clinching the win by sacking quarterback Matt Flynn and forcing a fumble on the game's final play. "We did what we had to do," he said.

 

Another huge play was Dan Connolly's 71-yard interception return in the second quarter. Said Banta-Cain: "What a play, man. That's the play of the...

Arrington on D&H: Pick-six 'a blessing'

Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington checked in with the Dale & Holley show Monday from Gillette Stadium to talk about his interception in Sunday night's 31-27 victory over the Packers.

 

Arrington grabbed a pass from Matt Flynn that was intended for receiver James Jones early in the second half. The cornerback broke four tackles during an impressive 33-yard return for a touchdown that put the Pats ahead 21-17. "It's one of those things where I don't get a lot of time to showcase my terrific running back skills," he said with a laugh. "I just said, you know what, as soon as I get the ball in my hands, I get an opportunity, I just try to maximize on it. I just tried to keep the legs moving, and it worked out in my favor."

 

It was the first career interception for Arrington, who is in his second season as a Patriot after spending time on the Eagles and Buccaneers practice squads, and his first career...

Wilfork on D&H: Critics need to back off

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork stopped by for a visit with Dale & Holley at Gillette Stadium as part of his weekly Patriots Monday appearance.

 

Wilfork said he takes positives and negatives from Sunday night's 31-27 victory over the Packers in which the defense had a number of struggles, especially on third down. It wasn't our greatest game," Wilfork acknowledged. "We didn't go our and dominate like we wanted to at times. ... If we play like that going forward, we will get beat."

 

That said, Wilfork noted that people need to have reasonable expections. Said the lineman: "You look at this game and say, 'Oh, the Patriots didn't play like they played the last couple of weeks.' The last couple of weeks we only gave up 10 points. We can't blow everybody out every week. I think sometimes as players, coaches or fans, you look at teams we played the last couple of weeks, we handled them pretty...

Marchand 'stiff,' won't play vs. Ducks
By: DJ Bean

Brad Marchand was not on the ice at the Bruins' morning skate on Monday after leaving Saturday's game following the second period. Marchand, who has been considered day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, will not be in the lineup vs. the Ducks on Monday, as Daniel Paille has been told by assistant coaches to expect to play. 

 

Coach Claude Julien didn't say exactly what type of injury it is for Marchand, though he did say that the winger is "still stiff" from a hit that he took on Saturday against the Capitals. Marchand also took a hard hit from Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban on Thursday in Montreal.
