Taylor on D&H: 'I'm ready to play'

Patriots running back Fred Taylor joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning and pronounced himself ready to go on Monday night vs. the Jets, although he said the final decision is up to the team.

 

"I'm ready to play," he said. "I'm going through practice preparing the best that I can. I'm ready to play. [The coaches] just said, 'We'll decide later.' It's a process. Things have to occur, and things have to be right. And I'm not trying to give you a politically correct answer, I'm just trying to do what's best for the team, in that I don't want to tip our hand to what's going on in terms of personnel moves. That might be the best answer. But I'm ready to play."

 

Taylor, out since Week 3 with turf toe, was dressed for the Patriots' Thanksgiving Day win over the Lions but did not play. "I wanted some action on that day," he admitted. "But it was more so an emergency-type deal, to get...

Ortiz on D&H: Sox should pursue Crawford

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning from his charity golf tournament in the Dominican Republic. Asked how he felt about the Red Sox picking up his option for next season, he said: "I'm fine. Like I always say, I can't wait for the season to start. … I'm happy I'm going to be around the Boston fans once again."

 

Asked which free agent he'd like to see the Red Sox pursue, Ortiz said: "Besides signing Adrian [Beltre], I would go right after Carl Crawford. He would be a good third-hole hitter."

 

"This guy's unbelievable," Ortiz continued. "He's got so many weapons to hurt you, that he's just unbelievable. His speed, his defense, the way he hits —he can hit for power, he can hit just to get on base. There's so many ways to hurt you. This guy's a serious weapon, I'm telling you right now. … I can't believe he hasn't been signed by...

Schefter on D&C: Brady will find a way

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about Monday's showdown between the Patriots and Jets. "There's a good reason that everybody is fired up about this game," he said. "It's going to be tremendous. … This may be the highest-rated sporting event in cable TV history."

 

Schefter predicts a Patriots victory Monday, mainly due to the recent success of the New England offense. "I trust Tom Brady in this spot more than I trust Mark Sanchez," he said. "I just believe that somehow, some way, despite the fact that Brady has struggled against Rex Ryan defenses, that he'll find a way to get it done. I don't know how, I don't know why, and it may just be that I'm wrong. But Brady has been spot on this year. Spot on. As good as anybody in the league. You have to figure at home, where he's done OK, he's going to do OK again on Monday...

Mashup: Rolle sorry for soldier comment

Giants safety Antrel Rolle, who earlier this week criticized New York fans for booing the team, apologized for comparing the players to soldiers returning from duty overseas. "We're risking ourselves out there on the field each and every day also," Rolle said Thursday. "When soldiers come back from Iraq, you don't boo them. I look at it the same way." Later in the day, he admitted that "was a very poor, very inappropriate choice of words." To read more about that story, plus check out other news, video, trivia and more, go to Friday's Morning Mashup.
