Boomer Esiason of CBS Sports joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning for his weekly chat about the Patriots and other happenings in the NFL. Esiason said the Patriots' victory over the Ravens went a long way toward validating the team's trade of Randy Moss.
"It seems like there's harmony again in Patriot land," Esiason said. "It's kind of a weird thing. Bill Belichick, it seems in the short term, did the right thing."
Added Esiason: "There is something to be said about harmony in the locker room, about everybody doing their job and doing it with a smile on their face, and nobody bitching and complaining behind the scenes. Reagrdless of what coach Belichick says, regardless of what Tom Brady says, the 800-pound gorilla is now removed from the locker room, and that was Randy Moss, always bitching and complaining about getting the ball. Maybe he didn't do it publicly, but...
Bengals receiver Terrell Owens has hired a matchmaking service, according to the New York Post. The paper reports that the controversial Owens is paying Kelleher International to find him a woman who looks like Kim Kardashian, "who I happen to think is gorgeous," he said. Kelleher International has 18 international offices and charges between $15,000 and $150,000 for its services, the Post reported. Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday to talk about Sunday's 23-20 overtime victory over the Ravens. Following the game, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs warned that Brady "just better hope he doesn’t see us again."
Responded Brady: "He had his chance. Maybe if he gets another chance he can try to back those words up. But he had a chance yesterday. You know, we've played those guys a lot, and they've beat us one time in all the times that I've played them. They talk a lot for beating us once in nine years."
As for Suggs claiming that when Brady got in his face he was bragging about his supermodel wife, Brady said, "I think he made that up."

The Phillies were unable to win with Roy Halladay on the mound on Saturday, but on Sunday rode an impressive Roy Oswalt performance to a 6-1 victory over the Giants to tie up the National League Championship Series at one game apiece.
Oswalt tossed eight innings of one-run ball, allowing three hits and three walks while racking up nine strikeouts on 111 pitches. The lone Giants' run off Oswalt came on a Cody Ross solo home run in the fifth inning. It was Ross' third home run of the series.
Jimmy Rollins drove in four of the Phillies' six runs, three of which came on a seventh inning double that scored Chase Utley, Placido Polanco, and Jayson Werth. Polanco contributed a pair of RBI with a sacrifice fly in the fifth and a single in the seventh.
Jonathan Sanchez went six innings for the Giants and was pulled after allowing a leadoff single to Oswalt in the seventh. Sanchez was charged...
Phillies starter Roy Oswalt proved overpowering in his start against the Giants, churning through eight innings while allowing three hits and striking out nine to lead Philadelphia to a 6-1 victory. The Phillies win knotted the best-of-seven National League Championship Series, 1-1, with the two sides set to resume play on Tuesday in San Francisco.
Oswalt, acquired from Houston in July, carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning before Giants postseason phenomenon Cody Ross delivered a solo homer, his third blast in the two games of the NLCS and his fourth this postseason. But Oswalt quickly re-established his groove, and needed just 111 pitches over his eight frames.
The Phillies jumped on the board without benefit of a hit in the first inning, scoring a run on the strength of an error and three walks by Giants starter Jonathan Sanchez. Still, Sanchez kept the Phillies at bay until the fifth, when Shane Victorino...
The guys have even more reaction to Deflategate and if this is actually a showdown between Bill and Roger.
Tom E. Curran calls the boys during his layover in Denver and gets right into the Deflategate craziness. Tom talks about his knowledge of the situation including his thoughts on if the NFL was indeed trying to set up and catch the Pats in the act. He gets into the relationship between Belichick and the league office, Belichick and Kraft and the actual game on Super Bowl Sunday.
Greg and Steve discuss the Deflategate debacle with callers and give their theories as to what went down in Foxboro last week against the Colts. Both guys think that Pats may be guilty of doing something to the balls, but that so do most other teams. Will Belichick and Brady be punished? Not if the NFL doesn't have proof, which it's looking more and more like they don't.
