La Canfora: 'Pressure's on the offense'

NFL Network analyst joined Dale & Holley to talk NFL and the Patriots-Dolphins matchup. "I've been a believer in the Patriots, I'm a believer in Bill Belichick, I think they find a way to win football games one way or another," La Canfora said. "The pressure's on the offense maybe more than ever before.

 

"They're going to have to score in the 30s a lot of weeks to win. Twenty-eight [points] is not going to be enough some weeks. I'm sure that reality is already setting in. I just have a sense that this is going to be a big night for Tom Brady. I think he's going to put that team on his back and this could be one of those nights where if it gets into a back and forth with Chad Henne and the first one to 500 yards wins, so be it. I think Brady's up to the challenge."

 

La Canfora said that he doesn't feel there's much separation between the Patriots, Dolphins and Jets in the AFC East. "I think...

Reports: Pawsox owner Mondor dies

Pawtucket Red Sox owner Ben Mondor has died at age 85, according to a report in the Providence Journal. Mondor bought the franchise in 1977 and led the effort to make the Pawsox a model minor league franchise. He was elected to the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2004.

Europe reclaims Ryder Cup

U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell's par on the 17th hole at Celtic Manor gave him a 2-up victory over Hunter Mahan and proved to be the clinching point for Europe in the first-ever Monday finish at the Ryder Cup.

 

Europe won the matches by a 14.5-13.5 final, and have now won six of the last eight Ryder Cups. The Americans won in 1999 at Brookline and two years ago at Valhalla. The U.S. has not won a Ryder Cup on foreign soil since 1993.

 

The United States began the day trailing by three points, but put forth a strong showing in the 12 singles matches Monday. Both Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods picked up easy victories, and Steve Stricker defeated Europe's top player, Lee Westwood, in the opening match. 

 

It looked as if the U.S. had a chance for at least a tie -- which would have allowed the Americans to retain the Cup -- when Rickie Fowler won his last three holes to halve his match with Edoardo...

PawSox owner Mondor passes away

Ben Mondor, the owner of the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox since 1977, passed away on Sunday night at the age of 85. In a press release, the team said that Mondor passed away peacefully at his home in Warwick Neck, RI. Funeral arrangements and further details will be announced on Monday.

 

Mondor, long heralded for his relationship with PawSox players, fans and the community, was elected to the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2004, and to the International League Hall of Fame in 2008.

Boomer on D&C: Pats a team in transition

CBS analyst Boomer Esiason joined Dennis & Callahan to preview the Patriots game with the Dolphins Monday night and talk about the NFL. He said that Tom Brady is going through what Peyton Manning experienced earlier in the decade. "Tom Brady finally realized what it was like to be Peyton Manning eight years ago when Peyton Manning didn't have that great defense," Esiason said. "Even if you are the best player on the field you have to have great defense around you and Tom has always had that in his back pocket. That's not the case now. He's the one that's got to become the Peyton Manning of seven, eight years ago where he's going to have to throw four touchdowns a game for them to win."

 

Esiason said that the Pats problems can be traced to the youth on defense, which has limited Bill Belichick's ability to get creative. "This is a team in transition," he said. "In game-coach, there isn't a better coach on...
