Esiason on D&C: Expect 'a lot of points'

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to dissect the Patriots-Jets showdown. "My sense is that the Patriots will win the game," he said. "It's not going to be an easy game, by any stretch of the imagination."


Esiason said despite the Jets' dominating defense, there should be plenty of offense. "I think we're going to see a lot of points tonight," he said, adding: "I think we're going to see both teams in the 20s. I think that the team that has the ball last in the fourth quarter is going to have a chance to win the game. And I really think it's going to be the Patriots."


The loss of safety Jim Leonhard — "I can't even begin to tell you how big a loss Jim Leonhard is. He is literally their quarterback on defense," Esiason said — gives Jets a huge concern. "You have a...

Mashup: More controversy for Haynesworth

Defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was deactivated by the Redskins before Sunday's loss to the Giants. No stranger to controversy, Haynesworth admitted he was late to practice on Friday and did not practice because he said he was sick, but he still wasn't happy with being held out Sunday. “I was sick, so I did show up a minute late, but I don’t think that’s a reason to sit out,” he said. Asked if he was shocked he was deactivated, he said: “Yeah, I am [shocked]. I thought it was a do-or-die situation and we needed to do whatever it takes to win.” Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

Source: No formal offer to Werth from Sox

Though the Red Sox actively explored the idea of adding free agent outfielder Jayson Werth, the team never came close to the seven-year, $126 million contract offer that the Washington Nationals used to reel in the hirsute 31-year-old. In fact, a source familiar with the situation said that the Red Sox -- despite a meeting last week between club officials, the outfielder and his agent -- never made a formal offer to Werth.


Werth represented a highly regarded outfielder whose all-around skill set (above-average outfield defense, middle-of-the-order lineup production and strong base running skills) made him a worthy offseason target. But not at the years and dollars offered by the Nats.


For more on Werth's situation, and the possible benefit to the Red Sox of the fact that he signed with the Nationals,...

Report: Adrian Gonzalez headed to Red Sox

The Red Sox have agreed on a deal to acquire San Diego slugger Adrian Gonzalez, according to Jon Heyman of, who adds that a press conference is expected to be held Monday to officially announce the trade. It isn't know who will be heading to the Padres in return, but multiple reports over the weekend indicated that Casey Kelly, Reymond Fuentes, and Anthony Rizzo will be dealt to San Diego. In addition, Heyman reports that the Red Sox will add about "seven years at about $23 million per" to Gonzalez's $6 million salary for 2011, but he adds that "no extension will be announced yet." ('s Alex Speier says that it's the prudent thing for the Sox to wait on...

BC to play in Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl

Boston College is going back to San Francisco for its bowl game where the Eagles will play Nevada in the newly-named Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (formerly the Emerald Bowl) on Jan. 9. The Eagles lost to USC last season in the game that is played at AT&T Park.


The Eagles won five straight games to finish the season 7-5 and become bowl eligible and run their consecutive bowl-appearance streak to 12 years, the sixth-longest streak in the nation. They will have a tough test with Nevada who went 12-1 this season and beat Boise State, handing the Broncos their only loss. The Wolf Pack are ranked 13th in the Associated Press poll.
