Esiason believes accuracy of Casserly report

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning. Esiason said he believes the accuracy of the report by fellow analyst Charley Casserly about a Tom Brady-Randy Moss locker room argument.

 

"[Casserly] has been accurate almost every single time," Esiason said. "I don't remember a time where he was inaccurate. … Charlie does not go in front of millions of people on Sunday and make a fool out of himself unless he has something on lockdown. I would stake my own reputation on it." (Click here to see what Casserly said.)

 

Esiason said he knew from his Patriots sources that "there was a short fuse when it came to Randy Moss." Combined with the financial ramification for this year and beyond, and Bill Belichick's aggressiveness in...

Mashup: Sosa's corked bat resurfaces

The corked bat that Sammy Sosa used in a Cubs game in 2003 has resurfaced, thanks to former Cubs pitcher Mike Remlinger, who is selling it through an online auction house. Remlinger, who grew up in Plymouth and attended Dartmouth College, was a pitcher for the Cubs when Sosa used the bat during a game and broke it while hitting a ground ball. Remlinger found the bat under some equipment and tucked it away in an effort to protect the slugger. He said no one from the league came looking for it. Remlinger said he reached out to Sosa last year and an assistant said the retired player was interested in the bat, but Remlinger never heard back. Read more about that story, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

King, Harrison refute Casserly's report

On Sunday’s “Football Night in America,” Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC analyst Rodney Harrison both directly refuted the report that there was an altercation between Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Randy Moss.

The report in question, delivered by former NFL GM and current CBS analyst Charley Casserly, detailed an incident between the two in the days before Moss was traded to the Vikings.

“The week before Moss was traded, Tom Brady and Randy Moss went toe-to-toe and had to be separated,” Casserly said on the CBS pregame show. “One of Brady’s problems with Moss was his behavior as a Patriot. One of the things overheard was Brady telling Moss, ‘You’ve got to cut your beard.’ And Moss counters, ‘You’ve got to get your hair cut. You look like a girl.’“

However, both King and Harrison roundly dismissed the report....

Shaq after preseason win: 'My hip is good'

Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal sat out practice Saturday with what was described as a bad hip. Doc Rivers said that it was something the team would monitor throughout the season and that the C's had a plan to give the big man rest. Asked about it after Sunday's preseason win over the Raptors, O'Neal said, "My hip is good. Got a little arthritis, a lot of pounding. We’ve got a great staff here. I’m getting a lot of rest. I’ll be fine." 

 

Asked if it was something he would have to talk with Rivers about, O'Neal said no. "There’s nothing really to talk about," O'Neal said. "Whatever he needs me to do, I’ll do.
