No Brady, no problem: Pats rip Jags

FOXBORO -- Playing without Tom Brady, the Patriots quarterback combo of Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett looked very sharp and rookie Stevan Ridley found the end zone three times as the Patriots crushed the Jaguars, 47-12, in their preseason opener Thursday night at Gillette Stadium. 

A resting Brady watched in full uniform on the sideline as Hoyer directed two first half touchdown drives, completing 15-of-21 passes for 171 yards and an 11-yard TD pass to Taylor Price as the Patriots built a 19-9 halftime lead. Hoyer compilied a quarterback rating of 111.4

Ryan Mallett, the strong-armed rookie out of Arkansas, opened the second half in place of Hoyer and looked even sharper, going 8-for-12 for 120 yards and a TD pass of 16 yards to Ridley for a 127.1 rating. Mallett stayed cool in the pocket and showed good arm strength, accuracy and touch on his short and intermediate patterns. Mallett finished 12-of-19 for 164 yards, leading the Pats on four...

Hoyer starts for Pats, Brady rests

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady did dress for Thursday night's preseason opener against the Jaguars but did not start as Brian Hoyer took his place on the field calling signals for the Patriots. 

On Hoyer's first snap of the night, he completed a pass to tight end Aaron Hernandez, who fumbled it, setting up Jacksonville's second field goal in the opening seven minutes of the first quarter. 

Hoyer took a massive hit from linebacker Daryl Smith on the next drive as the Patriots went three-and-out. 

Rookie Ryan Mallett was also expected to see a lot of time as it was anticipated that Brady would get the night off. Both Hoyer and Mallett practiced in warmups but Brady did not. 

Brady could see his next action in a preseason Week 2 contest at Tampa Bay on Aug. 18. For more, visit the Patriots team page at weei.com/patriots and the blog It Is What...

Mortensen: Mallet skills 'off the charts'

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen joined The Big Show Thursday to talk about Albert Haynesworth, the reported signing of Logan Mankins to a six-year deal and the Patriots' preseason opener vs. the Jaguars. Mortensen was asked if he thought there would be a change in preseason philosophy with a shortened training camp.

"What you are seeing more of -- and I think the league certainly has no problem with this -- is the head coaches communicating with each other in terms of how they are going to go at," said Mortensen. "It's different, obviously, because of the lockout and the offseason conditioning. I think for the most part we'll see fewer time for the starters, lesser time, and more of a look at the rookies and new players that they are trying to evaluate in this first game. The second game and third games are the veteran players playing more." 

Logan Mankins reportedly agreed to a six-year deal with the Patriots...

West: Judge won't let me leave country

Celtics unrestricted free agent guard Delonte West tweeted the following on Thursday: 

“Can’t even go get that overseas money. Judge said it’s a no go on leaving the country.”

In mid-July 2010, West was sentenced to eight months of home detention as a result of the weapons charges that cost him the first 10 games of this past season.

While the home detention ended in March, West still faces two years of unsupervised probation. Based on his Twitter comments, West will not be allowed to seek a deal outside of the country during the lockout.

A couple of weeks back, West’s agent Jarinn Akana told ESPN.com, “With any player, there has to be due diligence to see what’s happening [overseas]. That’s basically where [West is] at. But he’d like to be back in Boston. He had a great time there, he loves his teammates and he loves the organization.”

Childress: Moss 'vomited' on Vikings

Former Vikings head coach Brad Childress blasted Randy Moss in an interview with NFL.com on Thursday.

“We had good guys, by and large,” Childress said of his Vikings team in 2010, “[but Moss] walked in the locker room and vomited on it.”

Moss made a good first impression with Childress, but that did not last long.

“He called me and said, ‘I can’t wait, I can’t wait. I feel like I’m coming home again,’ ” Childress said of Moss’ first phone call after being acquired by the team with which he began his NFL career.

The wide receiver was waived by the Vikings just four weeks after they acquired him from the Patriots on October 6. 

Childress was fired in late November after a 31-3 loss to...
