Rex Ryan: Jets have handled Patriots

Jets coach Rex Ryan, in a press conference the day after his team's season came to an end in the AFC championship game, said that his team is close to its stated goal of winning a Super Bowl after making it to the NFL's final four for two straight seasons. He suggested that the Jets need to figure out how to do more than just beat the Patriots, feeling that New York has handled its business against its foremost AFC East rival, but has lost the division (and thus been left without a bye or home playoff games) because of its performance against other teams.

 

"This isn't just about beating New England because, quite honestly, we've done a pretty good job of it," Ryan said. "It seems like nobody else in the league can beat them, so we've got to find ways to beat Green Bay, to beat Baltimore, to beat these other teams we lost to. That's going to be a huge challenge for us. ...

 

"Unfortunately, we play a...

Ex-Sox Kelly, Rizzo top Padres prospect list

Right-hander Casey Kelly and first baseman Anthony Rizzo -- two of the three prospects dealt by the Red Sox to San Diego in exchange for Adrian Gonzalez -- were named the top two prospects in the Padres farm system by Baseball America. Outfielder Reymond Fuentes, the third prospect in the deal, was named San Diego's No. 4 overall prospect.

 

Kelly was ranked as the Sox' top prospect by Baseball America, while Rizzo was ranked No. 3 and Fuentes No. 6. The publication suggested that Kelly will reach Triple-A Tucson this year, with a big league ETA of 2012, while Rizzo is expected to spend most of this year in Triple-A while positioning himself to compete for the job of Padres' starting first baseman by early 2012. Fuentes, 20, is viewed as more raw than his counterparts (whereas Kelly spent all of 2010 in Double-...

Brady, Mankins, Mayo named All-Pro

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named a unanimous choice for The Associated Press 2010 NFL All-Pro Team, the second time in his career Brady has named as an All-Pro.

 

Brady, who passed for 3,900 yards with 36 touchdowns and just four interceptions in 2010, was joined on the All-Pro Team by guard Logan Mankins and linebacker Jerod Mayo. Mayo led the NFL with 193 tackles and Mankins was a dominant force on the offensive line in his nine games played this season. It was the first selection for both players.

UPDATE: Bears' Cutler has sprained MCL

In the aftermath of reports (including this one from the Chicago Sun-Times) that Bears quarterback Jay Cutler tore the medial collateral ligament in his left knee during Sunday’s loss to the Packers, Bears coach Lovie Smith clarified that Cutler suffered a sprained MCL.

 

Cutler left the game early and has been widely criticized for a lack of toughness since the NFC championship game ended, but Smith defended his quarterback, and said that the injury was severe enough that his availability for the Super Bowl would have been in question. Smith told reporters that Cutler "showed a lot of toughness" in trying to play through the injury and wanted to return to the game, but that the medical and coaching staff decided that he could not do so.

 

He added that he was surprised by the intensity of reaction by other NFL...

Doc: 'Some bad losses' in terrific season

WALTHAM -- Saturday night's loss to the lowly Washington Wizards was just latest bad loss in a season filled with plenty of wins, according to Doc Rivers. The Celtics coach was asked to explain how his team could lose to a team like the Wizards, which came in with just 13 wins. 

 

"Obviously, if you look at the whole season, it's been a terrific season so far," Rivers said following Monday's practice. "But in that terrific season, we've had some bad losses, too. And I tell our guys that. Some of the teams that have beaten us are under .500 and those are tough losses for a team that shouldn't lose those games. Moral lessons learned and we've just got to keep teaching them."

 

The Celtics have lost 10 games and one of those losses came to the Cavaliers, one night after they beat Miami in the season-opener. Cleveland comes to TD Garden on Tuesday having lost 16 straight and Rivers said he's not taking...
