Pats OL Neal on D&H: 'It's a rough sport'

Patriots offensive lineman Stephen Neal made his weekly Patriots Friday appearance on Dale & Holley to talk about the team's game against the Chargers on Sunday in San Diego. The Chargers have been a different team in San Diego as compared to when they play on the road.

 

"It's kind of strange how you have the home team, and they get out there, and they get after it, fast-starting team," Neal said. "And then you get the road team, and they just haven't played as well on the road. Unfortunately, we've got to play them at [their] home this week. You've just to execute against them and hopefully do all the right stuff, and hopefully you'll come out and get in front of them and play from ahead and do pretty well."

 

Neal said he has not yet watched the league's instructional video on avoiding hits to the head. As an offensive lineman, he's less likely to be involved in such plays. "I'm not exactly...

Schefter on D&C: No suspensions likely

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. Schefter said he expects no players will be suspended for a hit to the head this weekend. "I think we're going to get zero. ... I think people are going to be on the lookout, and I know the league is going to be more vigilant than ever. It's not often that we see a suspendable helmet-to-helmet hit. It's not often that it happens."

 

Added Schefter: "It's not like they're changing the rule. They're not. ... I just don't see guys going out there to just go deliver helmet-to-helmet hits and the league taking a look in certain instances and saying, 'We're going to suspend this guy.' "

 

With the league planning an extended regular-game schedule, Schefter said the hypocrisy is obvious. "The one thing that's totally incongruous to me is that they've made it a point to talk about the benefits and how...

Report: Ex-Celtic Charles Smith shot

According to multiple reports, former Celtics guard Charles Smith was shot Thursday afternoon at a house in Bowie, Md., and was in critical but stable condition following surgery. Authorities were searching for a man seen fleeing the home with a handgun.

 

Smith, an All-American and the Big East Player of the Year at Georgetown in 1989, played 65 games for the Celtics in the 1989-90 and 1990-91 seasons. In 1992, he was convicted of vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a crime in the hit-and-run deaths of two Boston University students a year earlier. Smith served 28 months of a 4 1/2-year sentence and then returned to basketball, making a brief stop in the NBA with the Timberwolves in 1995-96 and playing in the minors and in foreign leagues until 2001.

Mashup: Worst World Series winners ever

Forbes magazine has a list of the worst World Series champions ever. Two of Joe Torre's Yankees teams are on it, but the 1987 Twins are at the top. The 1916 Red Sox, with a young lefty pitcher named Babe Ruth, are fifth. Meanwhile, Forbes lists the 1975 Reds, who beat the Red Sox in seven games in a memorable World Series, as the most dominant champion of all-time. Also in the news, The Wall Street Journal explains why the Yankees losing isn't always good news for the rest of Major League Baseball. Check out those stories and others, plus videos, trivia and more, at Friday's Morning Mashup.

Mayo on D&C: Expect suspension this week

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show early Friday morning for his weekly appearance and spent much of the conversation discussing the head-hits controversy. Mayo said the team watched the league's video on how to avoid such hits.

 

"We have seen it," he said. "We didn't really learn anything new. We knew not to launch, not to lead with your head, things like that."

 

However, Mayo did admit it can be difficult to avoid contact with the head. "It's kind of hard hitting a moving target when you're running full speed and he's running full speed," he said. "You've kind of got to aim a little lower now."

 

Mayo predicted a player somewhere will draw the ire of the league office this weekend. "I think so," he said. "I think it will take a little time to adjust to the new rules. I think we'll get a suspension this week...
