Esiason on D&C: Broncos can't stay with Pats

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason checked in with Dennis & Callahan Monday morning for his weekly conversation, one week after predicting the Steelers would eliminate the Broncos and roll into Foxboro.

"I said that I thought it was going to be a layup for the Pittsburgh Steelers," Esiason admitted, "and here we are Monday morning trying to explain how Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos won that game.

Added Esiason: "It is a fascinating story, to say the least, how one player, Tim Tebow, he has a legion of absolutely diehard fans. I can understand why. The character of the kid is unbelievable. But coming into the game, the three previous games he looked like he was in over his head. And then the Steelers basically played into the Broncos' hands."

While the Patriots routed the Broncos last month, Esiason said Sunday's Broncos team looked different.

"Yesterday's game plan for the Denver Broncos was...

Mashup: Giant promises win over Packers

The Jets failed to make the playoffs, but New York still has a loud, cocky team making noise. After dispatching the Falcons Sunday following a few days of bad-mouthing them, the Giants are preparing to face the defending Super Bowl champion Packers in Green Bay. No problem, claims defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

"We're going to win," Pierre-Paul said. "A hundred percent we're going to win. … Because we're the best."

Brady on D&C: 'A challenge' facing Tebow

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined the Dennis & Callahan show early Monday morning to talk about the Patriots' matchup against the Broncos, following Denver's overtime victory over the Steelers in the opening round of the playoffs Sunday.

As was the case when the Patriots played the Broncos last month, Tim Tebow is grabbing most of the early headlines.

"He's a good player, and I think it's a lot for the defense to prepare for," Brady said. "I know in our preparations for him this last time, it's a challenge. It's a very different style. But they're very effective. They have a very good team. It's certainly not about one player on this team. I know a lot of people make it out to be one player on a lot of teams, but the reason why the Denver Broncos are in this position is their team as a whole. Certainly, the way that Tim played yesterday, it was just a great win all around by them.

"We've got a big challenge....

Source: Aaron Cook, Red Sox agree to deal

According to multiple industry sources, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with free agent starting pitcher Aaron Cook on a minor league deal, pending a physical. The 32-year-old right-hander is expected to compete for one of the final spots in the Sox' rotation in 2012. If he is summoned to the big leagues under the contract, he would receive a prorated $1.5 million salary.

Cook, who is coming off a three-year, $29.5 million deal with the Rockies, appeared in 18 games in '11, making 17 starts. He finished the year going 3-10 with a 6.03 ERA. The Ohio native's best season came in 2008 when he went 16-9 with a 3.96 in 32 starts, earning an berth on the National League All-Star team.

For Red Sox fans, Cook is perhaps best known as being the starter for Colorado in Game 4 of the 2007 World Series. In that game he surrendered three runs over six innings,...

Pats officially hire McDaniels as assistant

Moments after Denver defeated Pittsburgh on Sunday, setting up a Patriots-Broncos meeting in Saturday’s divisional playoff game at Gillette Stadium, New England officially announced that Josh McDaniels has joined the team as an offensive assistant for the remainder of the 2011 season.

The former Denver head coach, McDaniels worked with the New England from 2001 through 2008, including three seasons as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach from 2006 through the 2008 season.

McDaniels began his coaching career as a graduate assistant for Nick Saban at Michigan State in 1999. After two seasons with the Spartans, he joined Bill Belichick’s staff in New England as a defensive coaching assistant who also assisted in the personnel department in 2001. He...
