Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has directed his anger at Cowboys fans instead of players heading into Sunday's NFC East championship-deciding game.
"It's their fans," he said. "Some of their fans are loud, obnoxious and just bad. Just everywhere you go, you’ve got them Dallas fans running their mouth about Dallas. They keep going. It’s not really the team and the star and all that. They’re just like any other team in the National Football League if you ask me. But their fans are the ones that have me really just feeling the way I feel.”
Jacobs even ranks Cowboys fans as worse than the notoriously bad Philadelphia fans.
Yeah, they are [worse],” Jacobs said. “I’m not talking about being actually at the game and doing the type of stuff they do in Philly. I’m just talking about in everyday life. Cowboys fans get on my nerves.”

Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien has emerged as a head coaching candidate, and is “expected to receive overtures to interview with teams,” according to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network.
LaCanfora reports that with O’Brien’s contract set to expire at the end of the season, he could be linked to the Chiefs as a possible “coach in waiting” as a part of a staff that would include Romeo Crennel as head coach. (The theory would be that O’Brien would eventually inherit the head coaching job when Crennel steps aside.) Former Patriots assistant Josh McDaniels has also been linked to a possible job as an offensive coordinator in Kansas City on Crennel’s staff.
LaCanfora writes that “in an offseason in which seven teams or more could be interviewing...

Dennis Clifford scored 14 points and Patrick Heckmann added 13 points BC, which fell to 5-8 after having its three-game winning streak snapped.
One series was emblematic of the Eagles' fate. With just over seven minutes remaining, BC point guard Gabe Moton was all alone under the basket but missed the easy lay-in. At the other end, Rivard drilled a 3-pointer for a 57-43 lead. It was part of a 12-0 run that ended with Harvard comfortably in front, 62-43. BC, which has had problems all season with late scoring droughts, went six minutes without a point this time and scored just thee points (all free throws by Clifford) in the final 8:25.

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington confirmed reports by multiple media outlets that Ryan Kalish would likely miss the start of the 2012 season after undergoing labrum surgery on his left shoulder on Nov. 8. Kalish told both the Boston Globe and Boston Herald that he would be sidelined due to the procedure, which was performed by Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles.
Cherington wrote in an email that he expected Kalish to be doing some work at designated hitter during spring training, expecting a return to the outfield for the 23-year-old early in the season.
The Red Sox initially expected that Kalish -- who injured his shoulder diving for a ball while playing for the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox on April 21 -- wouldn't require surgery on the shoulder. But he continued to experience symptoms heading into the offseason, it was decided the left-handed hitter would get the shoulder scoped.
