Esiason on D&C: Jets have edge on Pats

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly Monday morning appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show to dissect the Patriots' impressive victory over the Steelers on Sunday night.

 

Esiason commended the performances of Tom Brady, BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead for their efforts in piling up points against the vaunted Pittsburgh defense. "That was startling, because that was supposed to be one of the best — if not the best — defenses in football," Esiason said.

 

Esiason said he puts the Patriots offense up with the Chargers offense as the best in the league. "I think the Patriots offense can play with anybody, will play with anybody," he said.

 

Asked how much role emotion plays in an NFL game, Esiason said: "There is a lot to emotion, there's a lot to focus, there's a lot to being in the face of the opponent. … Out of all these games...

Mashup: Amar'e rips Knicks teammates

It didn't take long for Amar'e Stoudemire to question what's going on at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks' prized free agent acquisition was livid after Sunday night's loss to the Rockets that came two days after a meltdown in Minnesota, where New York blew a 21-point lead in a loss to the Timberwolves. "I don't understand why we're not playing with the urgency. ... It's almost as if it doesn't matter," Stoudemire said after the team's fifth straight loss. "Maybe it's the fact that the winning mentality has never been here. I'm used to winning. Used to talking about winning. We just can't have guys complacent and comfortable with losing. I keep saying that." Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

'Exhausted' Brady fires up his team

Tom Brady made no excuses Sunday night after his sideline tirade seemed to fire up the Patriots in their 39-26 win over the Steelers at Heinz Field. 

 

BenJarvus Green-Ellis was called for a 15-yard chop-block that pushed the Patriots back to the Steelers 27 for a 2nd-and-23. The Patriots had to settle for a 31-yard Shayne Graham field goal. Then on the next series, Brady threw the ball twice to Aaron Hernandez, including once when Hernandez wasn't exactly where he was supposed to be on a sideline flare. Throw in a Wes Welker false start and a rare Welker drop late in the second quarter and Brady had seen enough.

 

He ripped into his team in front of  national TV audience, letting the whole world know that these weren't the Patriots he has come to know and love. "I was exhausted," Brady admitted afterward. "There's only one way to play. It's an emotional game. Part of playing quarterback is trying...

Roethlisberger: 'Old-fashioned butt-whupping'

After his team absorbed a 39-26 defeat that did not accurately reflect the thoroughness of the beating, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger pulled few punches in analyzing his team's performance, as well as his own.

 

The Patriots led for the entire contest, and while Roethlisberger ended up with a strong statistical performance, completing 30-of-49 for 387 yards and three touchdowns (against one pick), the quarterback performed poorly when the game was still in question, completing just 9-of-23 through the first three quarters. As such, he found little positive to take from the game.

 

"We stunk," said Roethlisberger. "Offensively, we flat out stunk. I stunk. It wasn’t fun."

 

Roethlisberger acknowledged that the Patriots beat the Steelers without any tricks or chicanery. It was, he suggested, as straightforward a beating as they come.

 

"I...

Belichick: 'Good to get back on track'

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, following his team's surprisingly one-sided 39-26 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, praised the performance of the entire squad in explaining how New England recovered in such dramatic fashion from a loss to the Browns one week earlier.

 

Belichick described the strong play of the offensive line and the involvement of virtually every skill position group, as well as a tremendous defensive effort (up until, he noted, there were lapses in the waning minutes while Pittsburgh operated in a two-minute offense) in analyzing a "good team effort all the way around."

 

"Players did a great job. They played hard, made enough plays. It wasn’t always perfect, but it never is against the Steelers. They cause you a lot of problems. It’s hard to do all things well against them," said Belichick. "So it’s good to win, get back on track here. Of...
