Ravens defensive end Terrell Suggs, in an appearance on Sirius XM's Mad Dog Radio, continued to take shots at Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The man who said that he voted for Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick over Brady for the Pro Bowl suggested on Thursday that the Patriots quarterback's three Super Bowl titles were "questionable."
Asked to evaluate the standing of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger -- whom Suggs and the Ravens will face this weekend in a divisional playoff game -- in the pantheon of quarterbacks, Suggs offered this swipe at Brady:
"If you ask me, [Roethlisberger] is definitely up there with them. He has the hardware to prove it. That’s all that matters in this league, the Super Bowl. He’s won two of them," said Suggs. "If I’m correct, Manning has only won one, both Mannings that is, Phillip Rivers doesn’t have any. Tom Brady has three. A...
Former Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor pleaded guilty Thursday in New City, N.Y., to misdemeanor charges of sexual misconduct and patronizing a 16-year-old prostitute in a deal that will keep him out of jail. "She told me she was 19," insisted Taylor, who must register as a sex offender.
Taylor thus avoids becoming the third member of the Giants' 1991 Super Bowl championship team to land behind bars. Mark Ingram is in federal prison for money laundering, bank fraud and bail jumping. Dave Meggett, who also played for the Patriots, last year received a 30-year sentence for criminal sexual conduct and burglary.

New York Daily News columnist Mike Lupica joined the Dennis & Callahan show on Friday morning to discuss Sunday's matchup of the Jets and Patriots. While Lupica said that he believed the Jets -- who have three road playoff wins over the last two years -- had more than a puncher's chance against New England, he also believes that the Patriots will win in a game that he expects to come down to quarterbacking.
In that regard, Lupica suggested, it was a mistake for Jets players such as Antonio Cromartie to be making inflammatory comments about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
"So much of this game, for all of our analysis of the other things, this game is going to come down to quarterbacking," said Lupica. "This is an immortal. You don’t insult Tom Brady. You don’t call Tom Brady names. It’s been a mistake to poke this guy in the past, and by 8 o’clock on Sunday, it will have...
CHANDLER, Ariz. -- New Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks was thrown into controversy earlier this offseason, shortly after leaving the White Sox. The pitcher told MLB.com that he was "looking forward to playing for a manager who knows how to run a bullpen," inspiring a series of profane tweets from Oney Guillen, with the son of White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen taking several personal shots at the former Chicago closer.
On Thursday, while taking a break from working out with Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia (and other major leaguers), Jenks shrugged off Oney Guillen's comments.
"I'm not really disappointed because there was no one who was affiliated with the team that was talking crap," he said. "This was coming from the manager's son, who gave his own opinion. I did an interview as heartfelt as I could, all the things about leaving the team. Of course I was upset. I had been there for so...
Yankees legend Reggie Jackson ripped Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie on Thursday, telling him: “Shut up and play football.”
The slugger, a guest on ESPN 1050 in New York, didn’t hold back when it came to talking about Cromartie, who called Patriots quarterback Tom Brady an “ass----.”
“What are you talking about? What are you doing? Shut up, play football,” Jackson said. “What are you talking about [Patriots coach] Bill Belichick and these people for? Spend your time looking at film, spend your time knocking down a pass. What are you doing? You’re not affecting Brady; you’re wasting time.”
Jackson said Cromartie didn’t have the resume to be calling out Brady.
“Go look at the hardware, dude. Walk through the lobby up there and look at the stuff that’s there,” Jackson said. “You don’t have that, you don’t...
