Wilfork: 'Can't take another step back'
By: Jay Asser

Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork and defensive lineman Damione Lewis joined the Dale & Holley show on Monday morning to talk about Thursday night's disappointing loss to the Rams and what will need to be improved in the final preseason game against the Giants.

 

"You can't be pissed off or nothing like that because we didn't do what we're supposed to do. At the same time, we looked at the film and corrected the mistakes," Wilfork said. "Hopefully, we can go out Thursday against the Giants and put it together and move forward. It would be very encouraging if we can do that. We can't take another step back this week, and I don't think that we will. I think we're ready and we're going to see what's going to happen on Thursday."

 

"We're not far off from where we need to be," Wilfork said. "There are just some little things that we need to tighten up and I think...

Manion on D&C: Clemens has to testify

Boston lawyer Harry Manion joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about the Roger Clemens situation, as the former pitcher faces his arraignment on federal perjury charges on Monday afternoon in Washington. "I think he's looking at jail," Manion said. "I think he has a very significant chance of getting convicted here. If he gets convicted, [Judge Reggie] Walton is going to apply those sentencing guidelines to these serious felonies, especially obstruction, and I think he's going to give him at least 12 months behind the wall."

 

Manion said Clemens' attorneys might be able to negate at least some the damage done by former trainer Brian McNamee and ex-teammate Jose Canseco, but there are other issues that will be more difficult to combat. Said Manion: "The problem he really has is Andy Pettitte. Andy Pettitte and he disagree on a  material fact. Andy Pettitte testified that Roger Clemens...

Mashup: Clemens to plea, play golf

Roger Clemens will plead not guilty to federal perjury charges Monday in Washington, D.C., and then the former pitcher reportedly will fly to South Carolina to play golf. The Golf.com World Amateur Handicap Championship in Myrtle Beach, S.C., starts a few hours before Clemens' 2 p.m. arraignment, but Clemens plans to take a private plane to the event so he and his wife can participate in the opening round.

 

Also in the news Monday, Manny Ramirez ended his tenure with the Dodgers by getting thrown out of Sunday's game after one pitch for arguing with the home plate umpire. Columnists around the country weigh in on the Dodgers' decision to let the former Red Sox slugger go to the White Sox and the effect on Manny's legacy.

 

Check out those stories and more at Monday's Morning Mashup.

Brady on D&C: More 'humble pie' for Pats

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance with the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning and talked about coach Bill Belichick's reaction to Thursday's 36-35 preseason loss to the Rams. "He gave it to us pretty good on Friday after the game and then again yesterday," Brady said. "There's always a running joke with our team [about] the humble pie. He was serving it on Friday. It was just what we needed. We didn't go out and play very well. Hopefully, we can learn from it and move on."

 

During Thursday's game, the Patriots offense faced a fourth down with less than a yard to go, and despite pleas from Brady to go for it, the normally aggressive Belichick elected to punt. Said Brady: "I think he was just pissed off at us. … I think he wanted to do it just to yell at us."

 

Brady said he expects to play in this Thursday's preseason finale against the Giants. "I think...

Red Sox lose more ground with loss

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Red Sox dropped to 6 1/2 games back of both Tampa Bay and the Yankees after a 5-3 loss to the Rays in the teams' series finale Sunday at Tropicana Field. The Sox leave town having lost two of the series' three games.

 

Taking the loss was John Lackey, who allowed five runs on nine hits over 6 1/3 innings, striking out seven and walking three. He had been staked to a 3-1 lead heading into the home half of the sixth inning thanks to RBI singles from Yamaico Navarro and Marco Scutaro in the fifth, and a run-scoring hit from Daniel Nava in the sixth. But a two-run homer by Tampa Bay's Carl Crawford highlighted a three-run sixth that gave the hosts the lead for good. 

 

Evan Longoria's single off reliever Hideki Okajima in the seventh, scoring John Jaso, added an insurance run for the Rays. Tampa Bay got 2 1/3 innings of scoreless relief work from its bullpen thanks to Randy Choate, Joaquin Benoit...
