Mayo on D&H: Welker is 'a funny guy'
By: DJ Bean

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo joined Dale and Holley on Friday, discussing the team's upcoming playoff game against the Jets. He joked that was ready to give  "Belichick-approved answers" in the interview, and when asked whether he felt Wes Welker had Belichick-approved answers the day before, responded "obviously not."

 

Welker made 11 subtle references to feet in Thursday's press conference, often saying the Pats had to put their "best foot forward" and even referring to the squad as "little foot soldiers."

 

"He's pretty good. He's a funny guy," Mayo said. "He was just answering the questions. That's all I'm going to say. He was just answering the questions."

 

On the return of Brandon Spikes, who served a four-game suspension for violating the league's susbstance abuse policy, Mayo said his fellow inside linebacker looks good. ...

Schefter on D&C: NFL should fine Cromartie
By: admin

Adam Schefter of ESPN joined Dennis & Callahan for his weekly appearance and began by weighing in on Antonio Cromartie’s comments about Tom Brady and how the NFL might feel about them.

 

"I talked with the league yesterday and tried to see if they had any interest in those comments, and the league wasn’t biting at all," Schefter said. "We’ll talk about this in our pregame show, but I went and looked at the NFL’s personal conduct policy and it reads, and I’ll read it word for word, 'Discipline may be imposed in any of the following circumstances,' and there’s a list, and there’s one that said, 'Conduct that undermines or puts at risk the integrity and reputation of the NFL, NFL clubs or NFL players.' "

 

Schefter went on to say that it would seem to him that Cromartie’s comments fall under that clause. He said that although the remarks did not bother him...

Bruins recall Bartkowski from Providence
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced Friday morning that they have recalled defenseman Matt Bartkowski from Providence on an emergency basis. The news comes after Andrew Ference left Thursday night's game with an injury after the second period. 

 

Bartkowski was called up on an emergency basis on Sunday and made his NHL debut against the Penguins on Monday. He was returned to Providence after Adam McQuaid made his return to the lineup on Tuesday. The B's face the Penguins at home on Saturday.

Suggs: Brady's Super Bowls 'questionable'

Ravens defensive end Terrell Suggs, in an appearance on Sirius XM's Mad Dog Radio, continued to take shots at Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The man who said that he voted for Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick over Brady for the Pro Bowl suggested on Thursday that the Patriots quarterback's three Super Bowl titles were "questionable."

 

Asked to evaluate the standing of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger -- whom Suggs and the Ravens will face this weekend in a divisional playoff game -- in the pantheon of quarterbacks, Suggs offered this swipe at Brady:

 

"If you ask me, [Roethlisberger] is definitely up there with them. He has the hardware to prove it. That’s all that matters in this league, the Super Bowl. He’s won two of them," said Suggs. "If I’m correct, Manning has only won one, both Mannings that is, Phillip Rivers doesn’t have any. Tom Brady has three. A...

Mashup: LT pleads guilty, avoids jail

Former Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor pleaded guilty Thursday in New City, N.Y., to misdemeanor charges of sexual misconduct and patronizing a 16-year-old prostitute in a deal that will keep him out of jail. "She told me she was 19," insisted Taylor, who must register as a sex offender.

 

Taylor thus avoids becoming the third member of the Giants' 1991 Super Bowl championship team to land behind bars. Mark Ingram is in federal prison for money laundering, bank fraud and bail jumping. Dave Meggett, who also played for the Patriots, last year received a 30-year sentence for criminal sexual conduct and burglary.
 

Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Friday's Morning Mashup.
