Schefter on D&C: Favre story 'unbelievable'

Appearing on the Dennis & Callahan Show, ESPN’s Adam Schefter talked about the decision Vikings coach Brad Childress is faced with in regards to whether an injured Brett Favre will get the start Sunday against the Patriots. Schefter said that while he didn’t know if it would be Favre or Tavaris Jackson in the Minnesota starting lineup, he did say that the quarterback situation goes beyond just determining whether or not Favre’s injured ankle was OK.

 

“The bottom line to all of this, is that there is a lot more to this story than meets the eye,” Schefter said. “It’s really intriguing how it’s going to unfold, and I don’t have an answer to how it’s going to unfold.”

 

Schefter explained that Childress most likely at least partially wants to start backup Tavaris Jackson Sunday no matter if Favre's health improves or not.

Mashup: Astros ban Clemens from field

Roger Clemens signed a contract with the Astros in 2004 that locked him into a 10-year personal services deal with the team upon his retirement. Now, however, the Astros don't want the disgraced ace around the club. "I think everybody is just on hold until they see where he is with the government," Astros owner Drayton McLane told the New York Daily News on Thursday. "He doesn't get involved in any way in our spring training or when he goes to where [his son] Koby is on one of our minor league teams. He doesn't get involved in the activities of the team. He's strictly a parent and a spectator." Read more about that story, plus check out other stories, videos, trivia and more, at Friday's Morning Mashup.

Report: Childress leaning to sitting Favre

A source has told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that Vikings head coach Brad Childress is "leaning toward" starting Tavaris Jackson at quarterback, which would end Brett Favre's record streak of 291 consecutive starts. Favre hasn't practiced all week due to a stress fracture in his left ankle. According to the NFL Network Favre has "confided" in some close to him that he's not convinced Childress will allow him to play Sunday in Foxboro. To read the complete report click here.

Moss in Minnesota: 'I'm content'

Randy Moss spoke to the Boston Herald on Thursday, as his Minnesota Vikings continue to prepare for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots at Gillette Stadium. Moss was asked if, more than three weeks after the trade from New England to Minnesota, he was happy with the Vikings.

 

"Everything's fine, man," Moss said. "I'm content. I'm OK. Ain't no problems."

 

Moss would not answer questions about Brett Favre, but did discuss how he felt about returning to Foxboro to play against his old team.

 

"I don't really have a feeling [about returning]," said Moss, who caught 50 TD passes in his 51 games with the Patriots. "I'm just excited to play football every week."

Gammons: 'Don't expect' Martinez back

MLB and NESN analyst Peter Gammons checked in with The Big Show on Thursday afternoon to discuss a number of topics, including the World Series, who will win the battle for the services of free-agent-to-be Cliff Lee and the Red Sox’ offseason. Gammons was asked if he thought the Red Sox needed to make a splash in the free-agent market.

 

"There is no doubt in my mind that they are going to go really hard after Carl Crawford," said Gammons. "That will be a matchup with the Angels, and you know there are some puffs of smoke coming out of New York that suggest the Yankees might go after him, even though their primary need is pitching."

 

Gammons also weighed in on the future of Victor Martinez and Adrian Beltre, who are also leading figures in the 2010 free-agent class.

 

"I don't expect Victor Martinez to come back, I think Detroit is going to give him four or five years,...
