The Patriots get back at it on Sunday heading to Dallas to take on the Cowboys in a 4:25pm national game on CBS. Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will get their first Patriots call of the season.
The Cowboys have sent plenty of bulletin board material for the Patriots to use, from Tony Romo (who’s out) making fun of the Patriots at an awards show this summer, to Jerry Jones repeatedly backing Roger Goodell and saying what an awesome job the commissioner did with the Brady case, and then Greg Hardy (and Jones) talking about Brady’s wife this week. Then there’s this weird no-filming practice thing.
But as Tedy Bruschi said on WEEI on Monday, no motivation is needed when playing the Dallas Cowboys.
Then, it is on to Colts week. Which should be a blast. Or not.
Just a few notes/links to fill things out:
The Bruins were smacked around in their season opener, 6-2 by the Winnipeg Jets
Jack Edwards is concerned about Boston Bruins’ defense and doesn’t know if this team will make the playoffs.
Celtics’ trip to Madrid brings back some “old” memories – I enjoyed this Steve Bulpett column remembering the last time the Celtics went to Madrid, for the 1988 McDonalds Open.
Lou Merloni is deserving of Red Sox radio job – Chad Finn throws his vote toward the former Red Sox infielder as the replacement for Dave O’Brien in the booth next to Joe Castiglione.
Roethlisberger Wasn’t Holding a Phone on the Sidelines – Matt Chatham puts the “scandal” from last week to bed.
Have a great long weekend! I know this space has been erratic in updates for the last few months, but there has been a reason for it! More news on that soon…
