Kraft on D&H: Never had Mankins deal

Patriots owner Robert Kraft made a surprise appearance on the Dale & Holley show Monday morning to address recent reports about the team's contract dispute with holdout offensive lineman Logan Mankins. Referring to Adam Schefter's story that implied a deal fell apart when the Patriots demanded a public apology from Mankins for accusing team executives of lying, Kraft called the report a "bold-faced fib" and repeatedly stated, "We have never had a deal with Logan Mankins."

 

Kraft said it is true that Mankins apologized directly to him. "I hate violating a private conversation, but I think it's worthy, because it speaks to this issue," Kraft said. "I got a call three weeks ago maybe, something around that time, from Logan, and he apologized to me for the comments that he made in the public media. He said he regretted he did it. He knew in retrospect that they were not true. I accepted his apology, because...

Brady on D&C: 'A different team this year'

Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning, one day after he opened the season by completing 25-of-35 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-24 victory over the Bengals.

 

Brady commended his teammates for providing him with plenty of protection vs. a highly regarded Cincinnati defense. Said Brady: "I felt as good as I've ever felt after an opening game, I'll you that. It was pretty remarkable what the guys up front did. … I thought up front we played an incredible game. If we can keep playing like that, it's going to be pretty tough on opposing defenses. that was a great start by the offensive line, the backs protected great, the tight ends protected great. And we ran the ball. It's a different team this year, I'm telling you. It's a different team."

 

Asked about the key differences, Brady talked about both players and perspective. "I think there'...

Brady on accident: 'Scared out of my mind'

During his Monday morning appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady talked at length about Thursday's car accident in which he collided with a minivan in Boston.

 

"I was scared out of my mind," Brady said. "I'm telling you, when it happened, I didn't even know what to do, because you're just in shock. I was kind of sitting there in the car, looking around, trying to get my bearings. And then I got out of the car and I saw a woman and I said, 'Are you OK?' And she said, 'Yeah.' And she said, 'How are you?' I said, 'I'm fine." And I was just kind of looking around, I was looking in the other car to make sure they were OK.

 

"The next thing, a guy says, 'Hey, do you want to call 911?' I said, 'God, that would be a good idea, wouldn't it?' So I did that. But I didn't even think about doing that. I was just thinking, 'How am I going to — I've got to...

Esiason on D&C: Brady will keep Moss happy

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about the Patriots' victory over the Bengals in Sunday's opener. Esiason said the game marked a turning point for Tom Brady. "Watching the game yesterday, Tom Brady is fully, 100 percent recovered. His knee is no longer bothering him whatsoever," Esiason said. "I thought his decisions, not only were they good, they were quick. He was accurate, the ball was coming our great. And how about Wes Welker? To me, that's got to be the story of the year so far. That kid, being back, doing what he's doing, as quickly as he is, is really a miracle to me."

 

Regarding Randy Moss' postgame speech about feeling unappreciated, Esiason was asked how he dealt with "divas" such as Moss. "In the 14 years I played, I never played with a guy that was quite like the receivers are today," Esiason said. "They all...

Mashup: Jets embarrass female reporter

Jets coaches and players are being investigated for inappropriate behavior toward a female reporter who was at the team’s practice Saturday. Ines Sainz of Mexico’s TV Azteca was at practice to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez when Thurman and others allegedly overthrew passes during drills so the balls would land near her. After practice, when Sainz entered the locker room, several players reportedly hooted and hollered. Sainz later tweeted in Spanish that she was “dying of embarrassment.” Jets management said that the issue was addressed during a team meeting, and the NFL is looking into it. Meanwhile, another report indicates the league is investigating coach Rex Ryan and an assistant for allegedly overseeing Sanchez’ offseason workouts with a group of teammates in California.
