Dean Pees, who last week insisted he was not fired but rather chose not to return to the Patriots as defensive coordinator, is the lead candidate to be the defensive coordinator with the Broncos, according to a report in the Denver Post. Denver coach Josh McDaniels, a former Patriots assistant, recently parted ways with defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, who reportedly is headed to Miami. Meanwhile, Fox Sports is reporting that Chan Gailey likely will be the next head coach of the Bills. Check the It Is What It Is blog for updates as they become available.
Prior to committing one of the season's stupidest penalties when he kicked the Jets' challenge flag late in the fourth quarter of his team's loss Sunday, Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson was stopped by police for playing music too loud, was put in handcuffs and had his car impounded on his way to the stadium.

After the Celtics suffered a 99-90 loss to the Mavericks Monday night, Rasheed Wallace didn't hold back in expressing his frustration about a crucial fourth personal foul called on him with 5:16 remaining in the third quarter and Boston holding on to a 63-60 lead. With Wallace on the bench, Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks outscored Boston 15-5 to close out the third quarter.
"You know, they don't like no tough defense on him, so of course I get a whole lot of bull[crap] calls, but that's how the story goes," Wallace said. "I ain't worried about it. We'll see them again. Honestly, I can't remember which one the fourth foul was, there were so many bogus [calls]. I ain't worried about it. Like I said, we'll see again. We go down there in about a month or so. There'll be retribution."
Wallace and the Celtics will have their chance at payback on March 20 when the Celtics visit Dallas. For more, including...
