PFT Live: Jets talk with Manish Mehta, Lions talk with Dave Birkett

The Jets heard some of that old circus music over the last couple of days as they slumped to a 31-0 defeat in San Diego that saw quarterback Geno Smith head to the bench and then make a rather pained attempt to explain why he missed a team meeting because of the time difference between New York and California.

Smith was reportedly at a movie when he was supposed to be at the team meeting and Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News will join Mike Florio on Tuesday’s edition of PFT Live to discuss which movie Smith saw and whether he’d recommend it to film-loving Jets fans. We kid, of course. They’ll be talking about Rex Ryan’s decision to stick with Smith, who deserves the blame for a Jets season that looks like it could be headed straight off the rails and what the team might be able to do to avoid that fate.

We know one way the Lions could help themselves is to find a kicker capable of making field goals from beyond 40 yards and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press will also stop by the show to talk about which kickers are up for the gig now that Alex Henery has been dispatched. We’ll also check in on wide receiver Calvin Johnson and the chances that he’ll be held out of Week Six to let his ankle fully recover.

It all gets started at noon ET and you can watch it all live by clicking right here.

PFT Live: Antoine Cason, 49ers talk with Matt Maiocco

Chicago Bears v Carolina Panthers Getty Images

Panthers cornerback Antoine Cason made one of the biggest plays in Sunday’s victory over the Bears when he stripped Bears running back Matt Forte for a fumble that Carolina recovered with the score tied at 24 in the fourth quarter.

The Panthers would go on to score the game-winning touchdown to snap a two-game losing streak. Cason will join Mike Florio on Monday’s edition of PFT Live to give us a first-hand description of the play and walk us through all of the steps of Carolina’s comeback victory. We’ll also look ahead to Carolina’s Week Six trip to Cincinnati during Cason’s visit to the show.

The 49ers also won on Sunday to make it two straight wins after a 1-2 start to the season. They did it amid more reports that cast doubt on coach Jim Harbaugh’s future with the team beyond this season and Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area will talk to Florio about those reports and what, if any, impact they’re having on the team.

PFT Live: Patriots talk with Tom Curran, PFT Planet calls and tweets

Tom Brady AP

There’s nothing quite like a blowout loss on national television to make people question the fitness of a team.

The Patriots suffered just that kind of loss to the Chiefs on Monday night and that’s led to a week of questions about whether they will be able to fix an offense that’s been nowhere near good enough through the first four weeks of the season. Tom Curran of CSN New England will join Mike Florio on Friday’s edition of PFT Live to discuss quarterback Tom Brady, the team’s dismal offensive line play and much more about the perennial AFC East champion as they prepare to face the Bengals.

Florio will also be taking questions from PFT Planet during the show. Send them in on Twitter — @ProFootballTalk — or give a call to 888-237-5269 during the show to share what’s on your mind.
