Mashup: Sterger may go 'public' vs. Favre

On Monday, there were reports that the NFL is close to resolving its investigation into the Brett Favre-Jenn Sterger situation, and that the league was not likely to suspend the Vikings quarterback. Sterger's manager did not take well to that news. Phil Reese told TMZ.com that Sterger has "provided extensive evidence that irrefutably proves there was harassment." While Sterger has been mostly silent on the matter until now, Reese said that could change. Said Reese: "No matter what happens, Jenn has all legal remedies, including going public, if the NFL doesn't clear her name." Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Tuesday's Morning Mashup.

Sox open to giving up pick to sign Downs

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- While the Red Sox value their draft picks highly, and are typically reluctant to spend heavily on middle relievers, the team does not necessarily view the need to give up a draft pick to sign Type A free agent Scott Downs a deal-breaker. If the team could come to terms with Downs on a contract that made sense, it would consider forfeiting a draft selection (which could be as high as the No. 24 pick in the first round of the 2011 draft) to strike a deal with the top left-hander on the market.

 

Downs had a 2.64 ERA in 2010, and a 2.36 mark over the last four years with the Blue Jays. His track record of consistent excellence in the AL East will make him one of the more coveted relievers on the market this offseason.

Brady: 'It wasn't their day, it was our day'

Tom Brady has been saying all week that the Patriots couldn't afford to lose to the Jets twice in one season and on Monday night he made sure that didn't happen, completing 21-of-29 passes for 326 yards and four touchdowns in the Pats' 45-3 win. "You can't lose to the same team twice," Brady said. "If you want to win your division, which is our goal, you can't lose to the same team twice. It's a team that [was] 9-2 and playing pretty good football. It wasn't their day. It was our day. But we may see them again."

 

Brady started out red hot in leading the Patriots to a 17-0 lead after the first quarter. He was asked if he could sense things were going to go his way. "Not me," he said. "I don't. I've seen some pretty crazy things happen. You go back to last year with some leads and we just didn't produce much in the fourth quarter. We've got to continue to find way to produce in the fourth quarter. Our defense...

Rex Ryan: 'Got our butts kicked'

FOXBORO - A subdued Rex Ryan met with the media after the Jets were dominated by the Patriots by a 45-3 final on Monday night. Ryan's opening comments were short but to the point.

 

"Obviously we got out-coached, got out-played, got our butts kicked," said Ryan. "I don't know what else you can say about it."  

 

Ryan was asked where this loss ranked in his career.

 

"The biggest butt-whooping I've ever taken as a coach in my career, " Ryan said. "But I can promise you one thing: I'll be ready to play them - I'll go out and play them now if they'll go out and do it again."

Belichick: 'Best 60 minutes of football'

Patriots coach Bill Belichick doesn't often dole out a lot of praise, but he cut right to the chase after his team demolished the Jets, 45-3 Monday night. "I thought this was the best 60 minutes of football we've played all year," he said. "We had a good week in practice. Everybody was really focused. We got a lot of solid play, really from everybody. It was a good night for us, we'll take it."

 

The win evened the season series and put the Patriots a game ahead of New York in the East at 10-2, but this may not be the last time these two teams play as they could meet again in the playoffs. "The Jets are a good football team," the coach said. "I'm sure we haven't heard the last from them, but tonight was our night." 

 

Belichick was clearly pleased that the Patriots played this well, and won such an important game on Tedy Bruschi night. "I'm sure it's a game that Tedy's...
