Florio on D&C: Jets unlikely to make playoffs

ProFootballTalk.com writer Mike Florio joined the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning and talked about how he sees the AFC East panning out. Florio predicts the Patriots to win the division, with the Dolphins a wild card team. He's not as high on the Jets, despite other prognosticators' lofty predictions.

 

"They're going to have a very difficult season," Florio said of the Jets. "I just don't know that they planned how this all was going to play out. ... I just think it's going to be a very tall order for the New York Jets to be competitive this year. They welcome the bull's-eye that on their backs, and I don't know that that's all going to play very well. They were a mediocre team in November last year, and really into December. I think there's a good chance they don't even make the playoffs."

 

Asked about Jets coach Rex Ryan, Florio said: "We'll see what happens when they hit...

Mashup: Chargers rip LT; Mannywood gone

Former teammates of LaDanian Tomlinson took some shots at the running back as he begins his stint with the Jets. Chargers players implied that Tomlinson had trouble handling his diminished role with San Diego last season. "Sometimes you would get the sense that people felt bigger than the team," tight end Antonio Gates said said. Tomlinson did not return the fire.

 

Also in the news Tuesday, the "Mannywood" sign at Dodger Stadium, a tribute to Manny Ramirez, was replaced with an advertisement. The Dodgers say it was only because they found someone willing to pay for the space, and it was not meant as a slap in the face to their controversial player, who is on the disabled list for the third time this season. The team still is selling Mannywood seats and T-shirts for the left field section, although empty seats there are a regular occurrence.

Sox rally falls short in loss to Indians

For the fourth straight game, the Red Sox came storming back with a late-innings rally that had their sights set on a third straight walkoff victory. Down 6-1 to the Indians, the team pushed across one run in the seventh and added on three more on Adrian Beltre's second homer of the game, a blast that brought the Sox back to a 6-5 deficit.

 

But unlike the past two games, the Sox could not take the final step in their comeback. They fell short in the bottom of the ninth, losing 6-5 in a game marred by a horrific injury suffered by Indians catcher Carlos Santana. With the loss, the Sox fell 6 1/2 games behind the Rays in the wild card standings.

 

Sox starter John Lackey appeared ready to continue his dominating second-half run. The big right-hander cruised into the fourth inning, allowing just...
