Esiason on D&C: Brady will keep Moss happy

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about the Patriots' victory over the Bengals in Sunday's opener. Esiason said the game marked a turning point for Tom Brady. "Watching the game yesterday, Tom Brady is fully, 100 percent recovered. His knee is no longer bothering him whatsoever," Esiason said. "I thought his decisions, not only were they good, they were quick. He was accurate, the ball was coming our great. And how about Wes Welker? To me, that's got to be the story of the year so far. That kid, being back, doing what he's doing, as quickly as he is, is really a miracle to me."

 

Regarding Randy Moss' postgame speech about feeling unappreciated, Esiason was asked how he dealt with "divas" such as Moss. "In the 14 years I played, I never played with a guy that was quite like the receivers are today," Esiason said. "They all...

Mashup: Jets embarrass female reporter

Jets coaches and players are being investigated for inappropriate behavior toward a female reporter who was at the team’s practice Saturday. Ines Sainz of Mexico’s TV Azteca was at practice to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez when Thurman and others allegedly overthrew passes during drills so the balls would land near her. After practice, when Sainz entered the locker room, several players reportedly hooted and hollered. Sainz later tweeted in Spanish that she was “dying of embarrassment.” Jets management said that the issue was addressed during a team meeting, and the NFL is looking into it. Meanwhile, another report indicates the league is investigating coach Rex Ryan and an assistant for allegedly overseeing Sanchez’ offseason workouts with a group of teammates in California.

Durant leads Team USA to hoops gold

Kevin Durant led the United States to its first basketball world championship since 1994, pouring in 28 points to lead Team USA to an 81-64 blowout win over Turkey. Durant drained seven 3-pointers, setting a record for the most points scored in the quadrennial tournament by a U.S. player. He was named the tournament MVP.

 

Only two other Americans scored in double figures during the championship game, which was played in Istanbul. Lamar Odom shot 7-for-9 and scored 15 points, while Russell Westbrook added 13 points. The U.S. held Turkey to just 36.4 percent from the floor.

 

Durant, the 21-year-old Oklahoma City star, shot 10-of-17 from the field, including 7-of-13 from 3-point range, to lead his team's offense. With the tournament victory, the U.S. has qualified for the 2012 London Olympics.

Sixth-inning rally paces Sox past A's

The Red Sox scored four sixth-inning runs -- all after starting the frame with two quick outs -- on the way to completing a 5-3 victory over the A's in the teams' series finale Sunday in Oakland. Keying the pivotal frame for the Sox were J.D. Drew, whose bases-loaded double knocked in a pair, and pinch-hitter Ryan Kalish. Batting for Bill Hall, Kalish rifled a single that scored two more, giving the Red Sox their first lead of the game. All the runs in the inning were charged to Oakland starter Dallas Braden. The Sox added an insurance run in the eighth when Adrian Beltre scored on throwing error by Oakland reliever Jerry Blevins.

 

Earning the win was Red Sox starter Josh Beckett, who allowed three runs on five hits and five walks, striking out seven, over six innings. Scott Atchison came on for Beckett to pitch two perfect innings, paving the way for closer Jonathan Papelbon to pick up his 36th save by striking out the side in the ninth...

Ochocinco: 'Better team won today'

FOXBORO -- Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco spoke to the media following the Patriots' 38-24 victory Sunday.

 

"All I know is the better team won today," a somber Ochocinco said when asked to assess his team's loss.

 

The Bengals fell behind by 24 points in the first half, proving to be too much for the team to come back from despite a standout performance from Ochocinco. The star wide receiver had 12 catches for 159 yards and a touchdown.

 

Leading up to the game, Ochocinco and Patriots cornerback Darius Butler were involved in some friendly trash talk via their Twitter accounts. After the game, No. 85 had only good things to say about Butler and the Patriots secondary.

 

"They're very good; I have a lot of respect for those guys. Butler is extremely good," Ochocinco said. "The secondary is fine, regardless of what they have personnel wise, Belichick is...
