Peter King of Sports Illustrated appeared on the Dale & Holley show Friday morning for his weekly call-in. He jokingly took credit for Fred Taylor landing in New England, stated that he liked the Patriots in their matchup with the Ravens Sunday and filled us in on which Boston sports legend Drew Brees idolized as a kid.
Plus, hear what Peter has to say about the wheelings and dealings of the coaching carousel in the NFL.

Sorry about the delay, Peter, but Fred Taylor is a pretty interesting guy to talk to.
Fred is the best. I remember last year when he was unexpectedly cut by the [Jaguars], I remember calling him and talking to him about it and asking him what he was going to do and the one thing he said to me was, “You know, I really want to win.” I forget I think he is godfather to Santonio Holmes or some relation and he’s very close to Plaxico Burress and he’s seen those guys the last two years win the Super Bowl and he said, “I really want to win.” I said, “Well, jeez, you go to the Patriots or the Colts then don’t you?” I said there’s no question in my mind that the Colts would love you and I think Belichick would love you more.

Adam Schefter of ESPN chimed in with Dennis & Callahan on Friday to discuss Wild Card Weekend and all things NFL. Shefter said that he liked the Patriots’ chances with the tandem of Belichick-Brady, but sees Dallas making some noise in the playoffs and San Diego being a team he can’t trust.
He touched on the futures of Vince Wilfork and Ben Watson, gave his thoughts on the potential Charlie Weis-Romeo Crennel reunion in Kansas City, and tried to figure out if Dan Snyder finally got his man with Mike Shanahan.
To here the interview click here.
Give us an overview of Wild Card Weekend. Which team has the best chance to win after an awful week 17: Bengals, Cardinals or Eagles?
I actually think one of those teams will win this weekend. I think the Cincinnati Bengals will win. I don’t think that the Arizona Cardinals are going to win. I don’t think that the Philadelphia Eagles are going to win, and I do think that the Cincinnati Bengals are going to win. But, I will tell you right now, I’ve never had a reputation of picking games.
Did you pick the Patriots and let’s get your wild card picks out of the way.
Yeah I did. I picked New England. I think Dallas is going to have an extended run this postseason. I picked Green Bay and it won’t surprise me if Dallas and Green Bay played in the NFC championship game. I think that New England, what they’ve won 11 straight home playoff games. Last I checked, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are both going to be there Sunday, so I’ll take them and let my money ride on them. You have the Bengals, who I just think there is something about them this year, and I don’t trust a rookie quarterback going on the road in his first playoff game, I just don’t trust him. That’s it. So I’ll take them. Read the rest of this entry »

FOXBORO — Julian Edelman was ready for the questions.
The rookie receiver, who will step in this Sunday for the injured Wes Welker, was swarmed by over 20 reporters and photographers at his locker on Friday and said he is ready for the challenge of replacing Welker in the Patriots offense.
Edelman’s first start as a slot receiver came in Week 2 when Welker missed two games with a mild knee injury. That was also the game when Randy Moss was moving him into position along the line of scrimmage.
“Wes Welker, he was the heart and soul of our team and we’re going to miss him a lot. I’m just going to go out there and try to give it my all and do what I’ve got to do,” Edelman said.
“It’s been like every other week,” Edelman said. “I’ve been preparaing just like it’s any other game, trying not to hype it up too much. I’ve just been going out there and trying to get better every day. That’s what I’ve been preparing like.”
Edelman was also asked a series of other questions, all designed to probe into his psyche coming into this Sunday.
“Obviously, with every rep, you’re getting more experience. Every snap you get, you’re getting a little more experience — even if it’s in practice — naturally, you’re going to get more comfortable.” Read the rest of this entry »
