Mashup: Colts' Polian lashes out at 'rats'

Cheer up, Patriots fans. As rough as the last two weeks have been, at least your team is far better off than the once-proud Colts. Not only did Indianapolis fall to 0-9 with Sunday's 31-7 loss to the Falcons, team vice chairman Bill Polian went on a short postgame rant about those who are critical of his club. It's speculated that Polian was angered by a Sunday story from Indianapolis Star writer Bob Kravitz that quoted unnamed former Colts employees as questioning the competence of general manager Chris Polian, who happens to be Bill's son. "Some people are just rats who lie about people," Polian said, adding that it's the team's job to "throw the rats in the sewer."

Responded Kravitz on Twitter: Just head about Polian's postgame -- dunno if he was referring to me as a rat or my sources -- or both -- i've been called worse.

Tuck: That win 'brings back memories'

FOXBORO -- What was a nightmarish repeat of Super Bowl XLII for Patriots fans turned out to be a great moment of deja vu for the Giants Sunday in New York's 24-20 win over the Patriots at Gillette Stadium. 

The Giants were so elated after the win on Sunday that they carried Tom Coughlin on their shoulders in the locker room to honor the coach of the team that pulled off the upset. 

"I think we got carried away," Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said. "It was a big win. We made some plays and got a win. It brings back memories. We were happy about that."

Asked what specific memories Tuck -- a member of the Super Bowl XLII champion Giants -- was referencing, he gave a simple answer.

"We all know what memories," Tuck said. 

Like he did in Super Bowl XLII, Eli Manning led the Giants down the field for the game-winning drive, hitting Jake Ballard for the deciding TD with 15 seconds...

Brady: 'One thing here, one thing there'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, in his press conference following Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Giants, praised his team for its willingness to keep battling, but he was left with few answers as he attempted to explain the team's offensive deficiencies after New England was held to 20 points or less for the third consecutive game. 

"It's just a matter of us executing better," Brady said. "I'll have to see the tape. It's one thing here, it's one thing there that keeps us from getting in the end zone."

The Patriots were held scoreless in the first half for the first time since Dec. 12, 2006, in a 21-0 loss to the Dolphins. New England seemed to be close to scoring at the beginning of the second quarter when a BenJarvus Green-Ellis rush brought the offense to the New York 29-yard line, but Brady threw an interception on the first play of the second quarter to end the drive. At the end of the first half, Stephen Gostkowski missed...

Bad flashback: Eli leads Giant comeback

FOXBORO -- Eli Manning connected with Jake Ballard for the game-winning touchdown with 15 seconds left on third-and-goal at the 1 to lift the Giants to a 24-20 victory over the Patriots Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Manning led the Giants 80 yards in eight plays in just 1:21. 

Tom Brady hit Rob Gronkowski with the go-ahead TD from 14 yards out on fourth-and-9 with 1:40 left to give the Patriots the lead. Wes Welker caught nine passes for 136 yards, including two big receptions on a game-tying drive. The Patriots fell to 5-3 on the season and dropped into a three-way tie for first in the AFC East with the Bills and Jets.

The two teams combined for 10 punts in the scoreless first half. The ineptitude was capped off when Gostkowski pulled a 26-yard field goal attempt wide left with three seconds remaining in the second quarter. 

Brady's second interception of the game, a pick by Deon Grant, set up a 22-yard field goal by Lawrence...

Report: Duquette to be named GM of Orioles

According to Jim Bowden of ESPN, the Orioles have reached an agreement with Dan Duquette for the 53-year-old to become Baltimore's next general manager. Bowden reports that a press conference could be held announcing Duquette as Andy McPhail's replacement as early as Monday. 

Duquette hasn't worked in Major League Baseball since the Red Sox fired him prior to the 2002 season. He had served as the Sox' GM from 1994-2002, having held the same position with the Montreal Expos from 1991-94. While with the Red Sox, Duquette guided the organization to an American League East title in 1995, along with Wild Card berths in '98 and '99.

Duquette also interviewed for the Angels' general managers position in October before Los Angeles chose Jerry DiPoto.
