King on D&H: Only Belichick can handle Moss

Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports football insider Peter King made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday. In the current issue of Sports Illustrated, King named Tom Brady his midseason MVP but listed Peyton Manning as his All-Pro quarterback.

 

Said King: "To me, I think it's arguable that Peyton Manning has played better in the first half of the season but that Tom Brady has been more valuable to the best team in football in the first half of the season. … I just think that Manning has been absolutely terrific, as usual, and has had a great passing season and a great season orchestrating what he's had to do in Indianapolis with a new offensive coordinator. Whereas Brady, I think his value has rarely if ever been higher to the Patriots, because he's gotten five new receivers up to speed while having the whole [Randy] Moss thing go haywire. I realize it's a very subjective thing. At the end of the day, I sort of...

Belichick on Mankins: 'Has a ways to go'

FOXBORO -- Logan Mankins participated in his third straight practice on Friday as he continues to get back in playing shape. Patriots coach Bill Belichick did not make any commitment one way or the other as to his availability on Sunday in Cleveland and said the former Pro Bowl left guard is making progress. 

 

"[Mankins] looks alight," Belichick said. "I think he has a ways to go, as you would expect, but he looks like he's in pretty good condition. Logan is a smart guy and he works hard so that's never really an issue. He just has to get better at things he hasn't done in a while."

 

Mankins reported on Tuesday after missing the first seven games in a contract dispute with the team. He signed a tender that was originally worth $3.268 million, but reduced to $1.45 million because of time missed.

Schefter on D&C: Browns will upset Pats

ESPN's Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show as part of WEEI's Patriot Friday. Schefter is predicting the Browns will upset the Patriots on Sunday.

 

"Cleveland seems to play its best football against good teams, evidenced by the fact that they've beaten the defending Super Bowl champion each of the last three years, including the New Orleans Saints on the road two weeks ago," Schefter said. "I think they're coming back home. I think that they're coming off a bye week. I think the Patriots are coming off a game that took some things out of them, a great win over the Minnesota Vikings, where everybody thought a game like that could go either way.

 

"I just think that Cleveland is this tough, crafty football team. New England's the best team in football right now. You're not going to get an argument from me on that. I just think on one Sunday, I think it's going to be a...

LEEInks List: When sports and food go bad

Randy Moss' departure from Minnesota apparently was triggered by his rude behavior toward some employees who were catering a post-practice meal for the Vikings. This got us thinking about other infamous incidents in sports involving food. Who can forget then-Red Sox pitcher Roger Clemens tossing items from a postgame buffet at a writer, an NFL assistant coach's naked trip through a fast food drive-through window, or Jim Schoenfeld's "Have another doughnut" rant at an NHL official? To read our complete list, head over to the LEEInks blog.
