Schefter: 'Perfect storm' Sunday

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. Schefter weighed in on the fourth-and-2 controversy and threw his support behind Patriots coach Bill Belichick's decision to go for it Sunday night against the Colts. Said Schefter: "Number 1, I think it was the right call. Number 2, I think they got a bad spot. Number 3, If you're going to tell me that Tom Brady needs two yards to win a game and keep the ball away from Peyton Manning, that's what I'm going to do."

 

Looking ahead to Sunday's rematch with the Jets, Schefter implied that the Patriots would make it a long day for the visitors. "I couldn't think of a worse set of circumstances — short of maybe this being the game after the Jets turned in the Patriots on Spygate — for the Jets to come into Foxboro to play. This is, to me, the perfect storm of factors."

Watson on D&C: Belichick is 'real'

Patriots tight end Ben Watson made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. Watson talked about coach Bill Belichick's style of dealing with the team, especially after a tough loss such as Sunday's night's in Indianapolis. Said Watson: "The coach is the leader of the team, first and foremost. The team kind of takes on his personality. In order to bounce back from a big loss ... a lot of that falls on the coach."

 

Watson said Belichick uses both positive and negative reinforcement. "He definitely criticizes, but he definitely praises when praise is due," Watson said. "The one thing I can say about him is he's real in every situation. If you're doing a good job as a team, as an individual, he's going to tell you. If you're doing a bad job, he's going to tell you. You know that he's going to coach you for the betterment of the team. His main goal is the improve the football team."...

Doc on Magic: 'They're the favorite'

WALTHAM -- Celtics coach Doc Rivers put his team through another intense practice on Thursday and then came out and professed Friday's opponent, defending Eastern Conference champion Orlando, is still the team to beat in the East. "It'd be nice to get to play them," Rivers said of their showdown at TD Garden. "They're the team everyone is chasing in the East. They won the championship of the East last year. As far as we're concerned, they're the favorite, Cleveland's the second favorite and we're the third, based on the results of last year. It'll be good to see where we're at." Both teams are 9-3, behind Atlanta in the Eastern Conference. For much more, visit the Green Street blog.

B's win on Bergeron's shootout goal

Though the Bruins allowed a game-tying goal with less than one minute remaining in regulation, the B's rebounded to claim a 4-3 win in Atlanta when Patrice Bergeron scored a goal on his team's second attempt of the shootout.
 
The Bruins held a 3-2 lead with less than one minute left in the third period on the strength of a pair of goals by Michael Ryder (with Dennis Wideman assisting on both). But Maxim Afinogenov of the Thrashers beat B's goalie Tuukka Rask at the 19:18 mark to tie the contest and send it into overtime. But Rask rebounded to stop all three shots he faced in overtime, and three more in the shootout, sending the B's to a victory in the first contest of their four-game road swing.
