Taylor: Hope 'switch comes on' for Maroney

Patriots running back Fred Taylor made his weekly appearance with the Dale & Holley show Friday morning to talk about Sunday's showdown with the Jets.

 

Taylor said he understands the rivalry with the Jets but doesn't prepare any differently. "For me, it's all the same," he said. "It's a game, it's an opportunity. I mean, the Jets are the Jets. I don't want to put too much hype on that. But they are the Jets. They're a National Football [League] team. I get excited for all the teams that we play. Some teams, there's a little bit more added incentive. But you treat the Jets the same as you treat the Bills. It's a divisional matchup, and those are the ones that they're a must-win."

 

Taylor downplayed a toe injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Bengals that caused him to miss some practice this week. "It's OK," he said. "It's getting better each and every day. It's one of those...

Schefter on D&C: 'Jury's out on Sanchez'

ESPN NFL analyst Adam Schefter joined Dennis & Callahan for his weekly visit to talk about the Patriots-Jets game, Logan Mankins and other news from around the NFL. Schefter picked the Jets to win the game but still believes the Patriots will win the division. "If the Jets are going to win, they're going to have to find a way to pick off Tom Brady a couple of times," he said. 

 

Schefter doesn't believe that Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is ready to beat the Pats on his own. "The Jets are supremely confident in Mark Sanchez. This is why I was not high on the Jets and this is why I did not pick them to go to the playoffs. ... It takes quarterbacks a little bit of time and he's just not there yet. Pete Carroll wasn't far off in what he said. Mark Sanchez still needs more seasoning. To me, Sam Bradford looked more poised on Sunday than Mark Sanchez did on Monday and Sam Bradford was playing his first NFL game. To me,...

Mashup: Is Jeter a cheater?

In Wednesday night's Yankees-Rays game, Derek Jeter gave an Oscar-worthy performance faking injury after a pitch hit his bat and not his arm as he indicated. At USA Today, Mike Lopresti continues the debate about whether Jeter is a cheater or a gamer. In the New York Post, Mike Vaccaro writes that it wouldn't have been that big a deal if Jeter hadn't oversold the call and accepted medical treatment. For what it's worth, Rays manager Joe Maddon, who was ejected arguing the incident, later called it "a heady play." Read more about that story, plus check out the latest in the Ines Sainz controversy, at Friday's Morning Mashup.

Mayo on D&C: Make Sanchez beat us

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about Sunday's game against the Jets. "This is a rivalry game to us," Mayo said. "At practice, it's been a tough week for us."

 

When it was suggested that Darrelle Revis is faking the hamstring injury that appears on the Jets' injury report, Mayo agreed. "When I saw that story, I thought the same thing. Look, he's healthy, he's 100 percent healthy. I'm not buying into that."

 

Asked if Mayo would want the Jets to know if the Patriot wasn't at full strength, Mayo said: "I wouldn't want anybody to know. For him to come out look that, it's just a decoy. So then everybody can be like, even if he goes out and has a great game, everybody will be like, 'Oh, he's the greatest, he has a tender hamstring, he's coming out, running back sticks and stuff like that. I'm not buying into that...

Ryan discusses Bruschi comments on his QB

After former Patriots linebacker and current ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi said Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was a front-runner and “tanks it” when his team gets down, New York coach Rex Ryan defended his quarterback.

“I respect the heck out of Tedy Bruschi, no question, but I think he would have a different opinion if he was here every day,” Ryan said in Thursday’s press conference.

“Tedy Bruschi is a guy that I really do respect. That’s a tough dude and he’s smart. I think he would feel much different if he was here because of the way he leads on the practice field, the personality he has,” Ryan added. “What he says about him when we get ahead, that’s how he is every day on the practice field. It never went our way on Monday night, but I would definitely not put Mark in a front-running category. This guy is a competitor and I think Bruschi would have loved to play with him...
