Julien on rumors: 'I'm not quitting on anybody'

Not even 12 hours after Bruins head coach Claude Julien opted not to comment on his job security or future, noting that he’s not a fan of ‘shock-journalism’, the embattled man behind the B’s bench for the last 10 years decided to entertain the question when it was asked Saturday.

“My job is coach a hockey club. Am I worried about my job? No I’m not, because it’s not my job to worry about it,” Julien commented. “My job is to fix things like I mentioned. I think my job is to coach this team and try to do everything I can. And if I become one of the reasons that we’re not doing well, well then I think management has to make that decision. It’s not my decision to make.”

Even if it was his decision to make, Julien would not bail on this situation for the potential...

Colts fire GM Grigson after 2 straight 8-8 years

Although the regular season has been over for roughly three weeks, the Colts finally decided to make a move.

According to multiple reports, the Colts have fired general manager Ryan Grigson. This comes after on Jan. 4 the Colts announced contract extensions for both Grigson and head coach Chuck Pagano. There is no word on the status of Pagano.

The Colts went 11–5 in 2012, 2013 and 2014, but have gone 8-8 in the two seasons since. They have struggled to find offensive linemen capable of protecting franchise quarterback Andrew Luck, among other things.

Patriots fans know Grigson as the man who started Deflategate. He tipped NFL officials off on the Patriots allegedly using under-inflated footballs in the 2015 AFC championship game, a game the Patriots won 45-7.

It’s also worth pointing out it doesn’t seem like Grigson was popular among the Colts players. Here are a few of punter Pat McAffee’s tweets.

Brown: Butler 'puts hands on you like no other'

Antonio Brown is ready for a battle on Sunday.

The Pittsburgh wide receiver, who was the subject of so much talk over the course of the week because of his now infamous Facebook Live video after the Steelers win over the Chiefs, also actually had time to talk about Sunday’s matchup with the Patriots.

Anticipating a showdown against Malcolm Butler, Brown said he “had a lot of respect for” Butler.

“He’s a follow-type corner — he’s going to be there,” Brown said of Butler. “I’m excited about having that opportunity.

“Butler finishes to the ball. He puts hands on you like no other.”

Brown noted that the Patriots have a secondary that likes to be a little aggressive.

“Those guys use their hands — they play to the ball,” Brown said. “They’re a great group. They work together. Bill...

Brady Sr. doesn't care about Goodell's presence

Tom Brady Sr. must have talked with Chris Hogan earlier this week.

Appearing on FNTSY Sports Network with Gabe Morency (a guest on WEEI’s “NFL Sunday”), Brady Sr. was asked about Roger Goodell not attending the AFC title game and gave virtually the same response as Hogan did earlier in the week.

“The answer is the commissioner can go anywhere that he wants to go,” Brady Sr. said. “As far as we’re concerned, him not being there isn’t going to impact us one way or the other. I personally have tried to let it go. It doesn’t serve anybody’s purpose to carry this thing on. The Patriots are going to be fine with or without him there. If they get to the Super Bowl they will be fine with him there or not there...

Hossa scores with 1:26 left to beat Bruins

Supposedly, the Bruins are a desperate team.

In what was their league-high 49th game of the season, the Bruins had the tall task of squaring up with the Blackhawks. The Bruins, of course, came into this game following back-to-back losses against two of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference for four more easy points left on the table, and clinging to the third place in the Atlantic Division by a mere two points, and have played at least two more games than all of the teams chasing them. This game also marked the start of a weekend slate that concludes with a Sunday road game against the Penguins, a team that’s lost in their building just four times in 23 tries this year.

Oh, and the Bruins are probably, most definitely, without question playing for Claude Julien’s future behind the bench, too.

But that desperation could...
