Mashup: Ochocino, T.O. feud with Jets DL

Injured Jets defensive tackle Kris Jenkins took shots at Bengals receivers Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco on Sunday, saying on CBS' NFL pregame show Sunday that the players are not "serious about football." Owens and Ochocinco responded on their "T.Ocho Show" on Versus this week. Owens criticized Jenkins for being injured, while T.O. claimed he did not know who Jenkins is. "You ain't really relevant, you ain't in my 360," Owens said, adding: "I feel you, now get out my pockets." Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

Billick on D&C: Got to let Favre play

In his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan Show, Fox Sports and NFL Network analyst Brian Billick said that if Brett Favre deems himself fit to play in the Vikings' game against the Patriots Sunday in Foxboro then Minnesota head coach Brad Childress has to let the quarterback play.

 

 

"Let him go in and fail if you have to," said Billick of Favre, who is suffering with broken bones in his ankle, putting his streak of starting 291 games in jeopardy. "But if you pull Brett Favre against his wishes you're going down a slippery slope and you may never get him back." Billick did say, however, that would be in a "very difficult position" if the doctors sign off on Favre, and the QB says he wants to play.

Pedroia on Lee: 'Hope he's not in pinstripes'

Dustin Pedroia called into The Big Show on Wednesday to announce that he will join the program each Wednesday during the offseason. The 2007 AL MVP was asked how his level of progression following the September 3 surgery on his fractured left foot.

 

"I should be 100 percent 12 weeks after surgery," said Pedroia. "I'll be out of the boot in three weeks, so we'll see how it goes ... I can't wait to get to spring training and get going."

 

Pedroia was asked about the possibility of Cliff Lee signing as a free agent with the Yankees in the offseason. Lee is 3-0 in the 2010 postseason and has never lost in eight career playoff starts.

 

"I don't think about that," Pedroia said. "We faced Cliff a lot, he's pretty darn good. He pounds the zone with a 91, 92 MPH fastball and it looks like it's about 100 MPH ... He's pretty special. I hope he's not over there in pinstripes....

Report: Pats work out two running backs

The Patriots had two running backs, James Johnson and Javarris Williams, in for workouts although neither player was signed, ESPN.com reported. The Pats are thin at running back with Fred Taylor still battling a toe injury, leaving BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Danny Woodhead and Sammy Morris at the position.

 

Williams has made the rounds in recent weeks. He was with the Seahawks, but was released on Oct. 11 and before that he was on the Redskins practice squad. Johnson was on the Packers practice squad.

Giants pummel Lee, Rangers in Game 1 win

Entering the first World Series game in Rangers history, Texas' starter, Cliff Lee, had allowed a total of nine earned runs in eight postseason starts spanning 64 1/3 innings. He had thrown at least seven innings in each of those starts.

 

But in the fifth inning of Game 1 of the World Series, the Giants knocked Lee out of the game with a six-run rally that included four hits and a walk against the Rangers ace. Lee -- who was pitching on eight days' rest -- lasted just 4 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs (six earned) as San Francisco romped to an 11-7 win to open the best-of-seven series. Lee suffered his first career postseason loss, slipping to 7-1 in October.

 

Former Red Sox prospect Freddy Sanchez, now the Giants second baseman, delivered a huge performance. He went 4-for-5 with three doubles, two of the run-scoring variety against Lee, in the process becoming the first player since Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury in 2007...
