|Belichick needs Brady more than ever|
|This has been my opinion from the start about Deflategate: It has been far easier to believe Tom Brady than to believe Bill Belichick. This has troubled me since 2007 about a coach whose sixth Super Bowl appearance (on top of nine AFC Championship Games) now elevates him into the greatest-ever conversation: Why would a coach this great ever feel the need to cheat? Wouldn't even rule-bending be beneath a man so renowned for his strategic brilliance? Not only was Belichick busted and punished for brazenly disregarding a rule in the 2007 Spygate incident that permanently tarnished his franchise, but the St. Louis Rams, and now the Carolina Panthers, have publicly suspected the Patriots of videotaping their walk-through or practice before the Patriots beat them in Belichick's first two Super Bowl wins.

|Kobe Bryant expected out 9 months|
|EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Kobe Bryant is officially done for the season after having surgery to repair his torn right rotator cuff Wednesday. The Los Angeles Lakers also made it official that their superstar doesn't believe his career is finished. Bryant is expected to need nine months to recover from his third straight season-ending injury. If Bryant meets that timetable, he could return to basketball shortly before the start of the 2015-16 season -- and the Lakers expect to see him in purple and gold again. Neal ElAttrache and Steve Lombardo performed the two-hour surgery at the Kerlan Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles. "I expect Kobe to make a full recovery, and if all goes as expected, he should be ready for the start of the season," ElAttrache said in a statement provided by the Lakers. The Lakers formally declared Bryant out for the season by acknowledging the expected recovery time for his injury but also effectively...|
|Richard Sherman on baby watch|
|PHOENIX -- Richard Sherman isn't just preparing for the New England Patriots this week. He's getting ready for the birth of his son. The?? Seattle??cornerback is on baby watch this week. His girlfriend, Ashley Moss, is expected to give birth to their son in the next week. Sherman said Wednesday a recent visit to the doctor gave him faith his son will not??arrive in the next few days. But just in case, Sherman said Moss is in Arizona with Super Bowl XLIX around the corner. If she goes into labor before Sunday, Sherman said the plan is to have her give birth at a local hospital. But if his son decides it's time to enter the world on Sunday, Sherman may be faced with a career-defining decision. "We'll cross that bridge when we get there," Sherman said. "We're not thinking about the possibility." Sherman said he and Moss have picked a name for their son, but he wouldn't divulge it. "I'm going to pass on telling you,"...|
