Tom Brady checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning for his weekly chat as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday.
With the Patriots preparing to face the Jets on Sunday, Brady said he won't let Rex Ryan's backhanded insult of him last week affect him. Ryan said Peyton Manning is the most-prepared quarterback in the NFL, and Brady gets more help from Bill Belichick than he would let on.
"I think everybody's obviously entitled to their opinion," Brady said. "And maybe he's right. He's a good coach. I'll just keep getting ready like we've done all year, and hopefully we'll go out and play well on Sunday night."
Added Brady: "I don't think anything that people really say has bothered me good, bad or indifferent over the years. Everybody has their opinion of people and things and places. All I know is that I feel really confident with our team and the way our...
Boomer Esiason of CBS Sports made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about the NFL playoffs and the Patriots-Jets matchup.
The Jets knocked off the Colts in Indianapolis on Saturday night, 17-16, but it was far from a dominant effort. New York's offensive struggles have to be a concern.
Said Esiason: "Sooner or later, Mark Sanchez is going to have to make plays. He certainly did that on the last drive of the game for the Jets against Indianapolis. Can he go toe-to-toe with Tom Brady? Tom Brady's not going to be settling for field goals, I'm going to tell you that right now.
"Like I said earlier, Peyton Manning and his team were so beat up. The fact that the Jets, it took them all the way until the last play of the game — they lost the lead there at the end — kind of tells you that the Jets I don't necessarily know are ready to go toe-...
The 9-year-old granddaughter of former Phillies, Yankees and Mets manager Dallas Green was one of the six people killed in the supermarket shooting in Tucson, Ariz., on Saturday that targeted congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Christina Taylor Green, whose father, John, is a scout for the Dodgers, had gone to the store with a neighbor when she was caught in the violence.
Meanwhile, at the nearby University of Arizona, the Wildcats basketball team lifted the community's spirits by beating Stanford on Sunday in a game that was postponed one day due to the shooting. And there will be a moment of silence before Monday night's BCS championship game in Scottsdale.

The Boston College football team held down the high-powered Nevada offense, but the Eagles still couldn't come out on top in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl Sunday night in San Francisco. The end result was a 20-13 loss to the Wolf Pack.
BC, the owner of one of the best rushing defenses in the nation, limited Nevada to a season-low 114 yards — more than 190 below its season average. But, thanks in large part to some big plays by Wolf Pack quarterback Colin Kaepernick (192 yards passing), the Eagles saw their five-game win streak come to an end.
Boston College QB Chase Rettig, a freshman, completed 14-of-34 passes for 121 yards with two interceptions. BC's leading rusher, Montel Harris, didn't play, having undergone knee surgery in November.
The Eagles were able to close the gap to a touchdown with 3:52 to play. They then were given the opportunity to tie the game, getting the ball back at their own...
The Bruins announced Sunday night that they have recalled defenseman Matt Bartkowski from Providence and placed defenseman Mark Stuart on injured reserve. The 22-year-old Bartkowski will be available to the B's when they face the Penguins on Monday night.
Bartkowski was the Bruins' final cut from the NHL roster before the regular season. In 34 games in Providence, he has four goals and eight assists for 12 points on the season.
The Bruins acquired Bartkowski from the Panthers in last season's trade for Dennis Seidenberg. The Ohio State product was drafted by the Panthers in the seventh round of the 2008 draft.
Stuart has been out since Dec. 7 with a fractured hand and dislocated finger. He has two points (both assists) in 26 games.
