Julian Edelman joined the show to talk about the win over the Jets and the quick turn around involved with Thursday night games. He also praised Danny Amendola's job on the kick-returns and how Chicago will most likely respond positively to the reported fights in their locker room following Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

Peyton Manning broke another record last night, which obviously started the Brady/Manning debate. We hear from Tim Hasselbeck, Tom Brady, and talk about who has had the better career.

Here are the highlights from Monday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with guest host Jerry Thornton, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– Keene State College students ruined the New Hampshire town’s annual pumpkin festival this weekend. The unruly students held out-of-control parties at or near the event, threw things and destroyed property. Police in riot gear responded with tear gas.

In the end, 30 people were injured and at least 12 were arrested.

“What do you do at Pumpkin Fest?” asked Callahan. “Other than smash windows and break bottles over people’s heads, what do you do at Pumpkin Fest?”

Replied Thornton: “This is the kind of thing that gives riots a bad name, because there are good riots. I would say the Boston Massacre was for a good cause.”

“I would think that if you’re going to riot at a pumpkin fest, it would include smashing pumpkins on the ground, right?” said Dennis.

Asked Thornton: “What was the point of this? Was it anti-pumpkin? Were they being denied pumpkins? Are their pumpkin rights being infringed upon? … I could get behind that if they said there’s too much pumpkin spice.”

– A Hopkinton bus driver was arrested Saturday night for operating under the influence after he transported the high school cross country team home after a meet. It was 59-year-old Robert Murphy’s third drunk driving arrest.

“He was driving a school bus and he’s already had two [OUI arrests]?” asked Callahan.

“It was 10:30 p.m., it wasn’t like he was going to school in the morning, and had a couple of mimosas,” Thornton said. “How are you going to keep a school bus driver sober at 10:30?”

– An Ohio kidnapping victim of 11 years answered questions in front of a live audience for the first time since she was released from captivity a year ago. Michelle Knight went as far as to forgive her captor Ariel Castro, saying Castro only held her because he had a disease.

“I’m in the wrong profession,” Thornton said. “I want to be a therapist. And no matter what somebody comes at me with, I’m just going to say it’s a disease. His disease happens to be rape, torture, beating the girls that he impregnates so that they’ll miscarry.”

“[Knight] had five miscarriages when he was impregnating her and beating her for 11 years,” Callahan said incredulously. “But she forgives him.”

– The Bears, who travel to Foxboro to play the Patriots next weekend, had some issues in the locker room after Sunday’s 27-14 loss to the visiting Dolphins, with controversial wide receiver Brandon Marshall reportedly in the middle of things. When the players weren’t sniping at each other, there was some criticism of their home fans.

The Soldier Field crowd booed the Bears after they fell behind 14-0 at halftime, a reaction offensive lineman Kyle Long deemed inappropriate.

“I don’t know if ‘upset’ is the word I would use,” Long said. “As somebody that is blood, sweat and tears in this locker room like the other guys, the coaches, the trainers, the staff and the equipment guys, to be getting booed at home when you’re walking off the field down two possessions is unacceptable — especially when there is not a lot of noise being made on third down [when Miami had the ball], period.”

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

Tight end Marcellus Bennett was more understanding, especially considering Chicago now is 0-3 at home.

“If I go see a bad movie, I boo,” Bennett said. “It’s an entertainment business. We are all entertainers. If you go to a bad show, most people boo. I think they had the right to do that. If I want to boo at fans, I can boo at fans, or whoever it may be. They pay for their tickets, and the show wasn’t up to their liking.

“If I go to a movie, I walk out if I don’t like the movie. Like ‘Transformers 3′ — it was terrible. I didn’t stay for the whole film and walked out.”

Serena Williams on Sunday voiced support the Women’s Tennis Association’s one-year ban of Russian Tennis Federation chief Shamil Tarpischev for insulting comments about the Williams sisters.

Tarpischev, who also was fined $25,000, had appeared on a Russian television talk show and referred to the Williams sisters as “brothers” and added, “It’s scary when you really look at them.”

He later said that he had no “malicious intent” and that his quotes on the “humorous show” were taken out of context. He said of the suspension: “I can’t comment. I don’t understand it.”

Said Williams on Sunday: “I think the WTA did a great job of taking [the] initiative and taking immediate action to his comments. I thought they were very insensitive and extremely sexist as well as racist at the same time. I thought they were in a way bullying.”

Russian star Maria Sharapova criticized Tarpischev’s comments as well.

“I think they were very disrespectful and uncalled for, and I’m glad that many people have stood up, including the WTA,” she said. “It was very inappropriate, especially in his position and all the responsibilities that he has not just in sport, but being part of the Olympic committee.”

– Saturday night’s college football showdown between Notre Dame and Florida State ended in controversy, as the Irish’s go-ahead touchdown with 13 seconds remaining was called back due to an offensive pass interference call, and they were unable to get back to the end zone in the 31-27 setback.

A day later, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly still was disappointed with the call, made for an apparent illegal pick that allowed Corey Robinson to cut to the outside and get open.

“Florida State blew the coverage and they got rewarded for it,” Kelly said Sunday. “So it’s unfortunate.”

Added Kelly: “I don’t know who saw it as interference, but you’ve got two guys that are trying to fight for space. We saw it as such.”

That said, Kelly acknowledged that his team could have done more earlier in the game to avoid being in the position it was.

“I mean, you’ve got to take the belt from the champion,” Kelly said. “You can’t leave it up to a decision that’s made at the end.”

Mut and Chris Price go Around the NFL and take a look at ALL the games today and one tomorrow.
Christian's big takeaways from Thursday night's game was that the defense looked gassed, Geno Smith didn't play as poorly as we expected, and the O-Line played well despite injuries. Amendola's slight emergence was brought up. Brandon LaFell can't run a pick. And the Patriots need to pick up a linebacker and/or a veteran offensive lineman.
