King on M&M: 'Sleeping giant game' for Pats

Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports made his weekly appearance on Mut & Merloni on Friday to talk about the Patriots' upcoming game in London against the Rams.

The Patriots' deficiencies are obvious, and King said the defensive secondary's problems mean the offense needs to take its game to another level.

"When I look at the Patriots right now, to me, I just see a team that is really going to have to outscore people the rest of the way," King said. "When I look at this game this week, this is not a gimme game. Because what the Rams have, the Rams have three good corners -- they've got [Cortland] Finnegan, they've got Janoris Jenkins, and then they've got a good nickel guy, Bradley Fletcher, who is playing well. They have a good pass rush. They're going to hit [Tom] Brady two or three times in this game, I guarantee you. Whether they sack him or not is another matter. But they're going to be in his face a little bit....

Report: Hernandez didn't make trip

Aaron Hernandez did not make the trip with the rest of the team to London for Sunday's game against the Rams, according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network. The tight end, who suffered an ankle injury in a Week Two loss to the Cardinals, has played the last two weeks, but was limited at practice on Wednesday and was not present on Thursday. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that his ankle has not responded to treatment, and he's expected not to play against St. Louis. (However, according to multiple reports, Hernandez was expecting to be a new father this weekend, and under that scenario, there remains a possibility he could still join the team.) On the season, he has 17 catches for 143 yards and two touchdowns.

Red Sox officially name Lovullo bench coach

The Red Sox announced Friday morning that Torey Lovullo will serve as the team's bench coach under new manager John Farrell. The move, first reported by WEEI.com on Tuesday, reunites Lovullo with Farrell, as Lovullo served as the first base coach for the Blue Jays the past two seasons.

Lovullo, 47, managed the Red Sox' Triple-A team in Pawtucket in 2010 before following Farrell to Toronto. Lovullo has spent nine seasons managing in the minor leagues, compiling a 661-609 record. He was a minor league manager for the Indians organization from 2002 to 2009, and Farrell was the Indians director of player development from 2002 to 2006.

A UCLA product, Lovullo played parts of eight seasons in the majors with the Tigers, Yankees, Angels, Mariners, Athletics, Indians and Phillies. He played alongside Farrell with the Angels in 1993, when he played a career-high 116 games. Lovullo, primarily a second baseman, finished his career with a .224 average, 15 home...

Mashup: Players tab Tebow most overrated

According to a poll of 180 NFL players by Sports Illustrated, Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow is by far the most overrated player in the league for the second straight season, receiving 34 percent of the vote. And No. 2 is New York's starter, Mark Sanchez (tied with Cowboys QB Tony Romo at 8 percent). Eagles QB Michael Vick ranks fourth (4 percent) and Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis is fifth (3 percent). The only Patriot in the top 20 is Tom Brady, ninth at 2 percent.

"Wow," a laughing Rex Ryan said Thursday when informed of the poll. "What are you going to say? I don't even know how to comment on that. I just know that I'm happy that they're on our football team. It seems like the Jets always get something, you know?"

In an NFL Network poll during the offseason, Tebow was named the 95th-best NFL player. That was after he rallied the Broncos to a playoff spot last season. This year, Tebow has been limited to spot duty...

Report: Allen left C's despite no-trade

The Celtics tried nearly everything to keep Ray Allen from leaving via free agency, including offering him a no-trade clause, according to a report by ESPNBoston.

In the report, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Thursday he included the clause in addition to offering Allen a two-year deal worth $12 million. That turned out to be twice as much annually as Miami offered. Allen accepted a three-year deal worth $3 million per season.

Ainge acknowledged Thursday his awareness of Allen's frustration at trade rumors during his time in Boston.

"I knew the [rumors] had been weighing on him," Ainge told ESPN's Jackie MacMullan.

When Allen decided to accept the Heat's offer, he called Ainge and sent a text to Kevin Garnett.

"Two years ago when I was a free agent, the...
