David Scott puts the wraps on a wild week of speculation, posturing and negotiation over at Entercom/WEEI. He also looks at a number of other media items in this week’s full edition of Scott’s Shots.
In the Herald, Jessica Heslam looks at the move by Entercom and how it impacts the Dennis and Callahan negotiations. Christopher Rowland in the Globe has Julie Kahn saying that this deal had nothing to do with a possible D&C defection. Yeah, right. Why rush to announce it at the letter of intent stage, then?
Susan Bickelhaupt has her sports media column, which doesn’t mention the D&C situation, but she notes that Dan Patrick will be filling in next Thursday and Friday in the WEEI morning show, rather than the whole week.
The Patriots Daily staff is all-in with another edition of the Patriots roundtable as we hit the three week mark of camp. Yesterday was a record day in the young history of the site, as the Bledsoe article was picked up by Deadspin, and the ESPN Hashmarks blog, among others.
Dan Pires says that rookie Brandon Meriweather is already proving to be a student of the game. Michael Parente has the Patriots unfazed by the tough talk of the Titans. Kevin Manni….err…Dan Shaughnessy, throws around the phrase “consumer fraud” in reference to tonight’s Patriots preseason game. Mark Farinella also looks at tonight’s preseason game. Albert Breer has a piece on Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, who is another branch of the Belichick coaching tree.
