La Canfora on D&H: Skins had to pay McNabb

The football world was buzzing about two things Tuesday morning: Donovan McNabb's contract extension and Michael Vick's performance for the Eagles against McNabb's Redskins. While the timing of McNabb's extension looked bad in the wake of a blowout loss against his former team, Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network said on the Dale & Holley show that the Redskins had to re-sign their quarterback. 

 

"You trade for Donovan McNabb, you’re Dan Snyder and you’ve never had an above-average quarterback. They haven’t had a franchise quarterback here forever. The owner has been lusting after one," La Canfora said. "He’s clearly trying to win now. So, you’re going to acquire Donovan McNabb and now you’re going to let him leave after a year? He hasn’t played that great but they don’t have an offensive line, a running back or a wide receiver to speak of. That’s the predicament...

Brady on D&C: 'Nothing personal out there'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined Dennis & Callahan to talk about the win over the Steelers, prepping for the Colts and his foot injury. He also addressed the issue of his emotions after cameras captured him screaming at his teammates. Brady said that's just the way they relate to each other during games. "They know me very well," Brady said. "My emotions go up and down, and so do theirs. They say things back to me. I want them to know and they do know it’s all in the best interest of us trying to accomplish our goals each week. There’s nothing personal out there toward anybody. There’s plenty of times when they want to scream at me."

 

Brady continued, "I don’t think you’re a going to have a good football team if everyone’s in a happy mood all the time. There are guys that are very edgy and we have plenty of those guys on our team especially our coach and our offensive...

Source: Marlins talks with Buck 'progressing'

ORLANDO -- According to a source familiar with the situation, the Florida Marlins' talks with free-agent catcher John Buck are best described as "progressing." Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com (via Twitter) of FoxSports.com suggested that Florida is close to signing the catcher to a three-year contract, with Jon Paul Morosi of FoxSports.com adding (via Twitter) that a deal could be worth more than $15 million.

 

Buck is the consensus second-best catcher on the free-agent market this offseason, representing a strong fallback option to Victor Martinez. Indeed, he was regarded by many as the best alternative for the Sox should they fail to re-sign Martinez.

 

The 30-year-old Buck enjoyed the best season of his career with the Blue Jays in 2010, being...

Mortensen on D&C: Brady MVP of first half

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen joined the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning to talk about Michael Vick's brilliant performance on Monday night, where Tom Brady stands in the MVP race and the quarterback situation in Miami. To hear the interview, visit the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

 

Mortensen said Vick's six-touchdown effort vs. the Redskins ranks among the top 10 of any game he has ever seen from a quarterback.

 

"And if he stays healthy he'll keep [this level of play]. And yes, I fully expect him to be in an Eagles uniform next year regardless of whether he keeps it up."

 

Mortensen was asked about teams that had a chance to sign Vick in 2009, and whether he had heard of any regret.

 

"As far as other teams go, yeah. I think if you're a general...

Mashup: Jets' Woody lashes out at haters

Jets offensive lineman Damien Woody was not pleased after perusing the Internet following his team's overtime victory over the Browns on Sunday. The former Boston College and Patriots blocker did not appreciate people implying the Jets were more lucky than good. So, he tweeted: "Lots of haters out there calling us lucky ... will y'all please check tha stats of the game b4 drinkin tha Haterade."

 

On Monday, Woody further explained his feelings to the New York Post: "When I saw some of the tweets I was getting I was like, 'Hold on now.' There are a lot of ignorant people out there saying some dumb things. Check the stats out before you start throwing out, 'Oh, you guys lucked out to beat Cleveland.' We dominated Cleveland. If we had done a better job in the red zone, the game wouldn't even have been close and we wouldn't be having this discussion."

 

Woody also compared this year's Jets team to...
