Poll: Are Gillette Stadium fans lame?

On Wednesday, Patriots QB Tom Brady made his feelings known loud and clear about the many empty seats disguised as fans at Gillette Stadium for most of the fourth quarter, when the Patriots raced out to a 38-17 lead in Sunday’s 38-24 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. “The road environment is very different than our very friendly home crowd, who when I looked up, half the stadium was gone when we were up 21 points early fourth quarter, which I wasn’t so happy about,” Brady said. “I don’t think the Jets fans leave early. They’re going to be loud the whole game."

Schlereth: Jets 'already crowned themselves'

Speaking on the Dennis & Callahan Show, ESPN NFL analyst Mark Schlereth said the attention the Jets have brought upon themselves might come back to haunt them, citing how especially motivated Ray Lewis and his Baltimore Ravens were heading into the Jets' Monday Night Football loss to Lewis' team.


"Let's face it. The Jets sometimes are their own worst enemy," Schlereth said. "They've painted their own targets on their back by the way they've talked. They've already gone through the coronation. They just have 16 games to play and then get through the playoffs. They've already crowned themselves. All that talk is fun and entertaining, but the bottom line is that they have to back it up."


The former NFL offensive lineman also noted that quarterbacks such as Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady separate themselves partly by the way they conduct themselves throughout a game, exuding a confidence...

Report: BC's Gionta will be Habs captain
By: DJ Bean

According to a report from La Presse, former Boston College forward Brian Gionta will be named captain of the Montreal Canadiens when the team opens its training camp on Thursday. Gionta, 31, will be the team's 28th captain and first since Saku Koivu.


Gionta is entering the second year of a five-year deal signed last offseason after playing his first seven NHL seasons as a member of the Devils. One noteworthy aspect of the news is that Gionta, hailing from Rochester, NY, would be just the second American-born captain of the Habs in franchise history, joining Chris Chelios (1989-90).


In his career at Boston College, Gionta racked up 123 goals and led the Eagles to three national championship appearances. Though the first two yielded losses, BC beat North Dakota for the title in Gionta's senior year.

Mashup: Namath feuds with Jets' Edwards

Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was the subject of some critical comments from Joe Namath after New York's Monday night loss to the Ravens. The former quarterback said Edwards "can't catch the ball ... or rarely does. He has as many drops as he does catches." On Wednesday, Edwards responded. While he said he respected the Jets legend, Edwards was not pleased, saying: "Tell him next time he's here, stop by my locker and tell me that." And in other Jets news, coach Rex Ryan said he volunteered to speak to the NFL about the Ines Sainz incident. Get more details on those stories, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

Billick: Jets, Sanchez could struggle with Pats

During his weekly interview with Dennis & Callahan, FoxSports NFL analyst Brian Billick suggested that the Jets won't be able to beat the Patriots Sunday with Mark Sanchez having the type of game he turned in during New York's season opener. 


Billick suggested that the Jets have had to reel in Sanchez a bit because they are perceived as a good football team, unlike the Detroit Lions, who let Matthew Stafford (a fellow member of the 2009 NFL draft class) throw the ball much more. "[Former USC coach] Pete Carroll said that [Sanchez] might need to stay in college another year," Billick said. "I think we're seeing the effects of that."


Asked whether or not Sanchez and the Jets could take the same philosophy Billick's Ravens team did when they won the Super Bowl, having a quarterback such as Trent Dilfer simply manage the game, the former coach said times have changed.
