Second, the load on the central offensive creator is amazingly high.

Posted on by

However, there are two primary weaknesses to this system. First, it can be difficult to find personnel who can fit the offensive requirements for the finishers while maintaining an adequate level of defense.

Meanwhile, it will be four more weeks of relatively meaningless (except for draft positioning) December football, something to which the Giants and their fans are not accustomed. At least there are three home games left against division rivals Dallas, Philadelphia and Washington that could get the fans who show up moderately excited.

Mara will be thinking these games should have been highly anticipated stepping stones for the Giants in their quest to win the NFC East.

The real story, however, will be what goes on behind the scenes over the next several weeks as the future leaders of the Giants’ football hierarchy are identified.

The biggest decision for New York’s new head coach-GM tandem will be at quarterback and whether to keep Manning as the starter. The Giants also could look to last year’s third-rounder Davis Webb or use their top-five (perhaps top-two) pick on a potential franchise quarterback from the upcoming draft class.

The latter has been the bigger issue in Houston, as Harden has carried an amazing offensive burden. However, he had to conserve his energy on defense (leading to a reputation as a laughably bad defender) and experienced some high-profile breakdown moments (such as the closeout game against the Spurs in last season’s playoffs, when he either had an off night or just couldn’t carry the load, and the entire Rockets team collapsed around him).

Paul essentially solves both of those issues in almost a “perfect storm” way. Paul is as good of a pure shooter from the point guard position as there is east of Curry, which makes him fully capable of being one of the “four finishers” around Harden. eagles_008_8b9f0b9790203967-180x180

Warriors’ Draymond Green questions NBA discipline after $25K fine

Posted on by

After the Golden State Warriors’ 115-107 loss to the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night, All-Star forward Draymond Green was asked his thoughts on the $25,000 fine he was handed by the league for his role in Friday’s altercation with Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal.

The Colts might have the most reason to be fearful the rest of the season. According to FPI, their chances of losing out are 16 percent, the highest in the NFL — yes, even higher than winless Cleveland or San Francisco.

Eli Manning has lost Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall as targets. Outside of rookie tight end Evan Engram, Giants players have combined to catch 50 percent of passes the past two weeks for 6.3 yards per reception.

“Sometimes you see in the postseason you want to try to do too much, and that’s what I was doing,” Bellinger said. “Today I tried to make an effort of not doing too much, and when you do that you get two hits sometimes. It’s a crazy game.”

George Springer put the Astros ahead with a two-out homer in the sixth , the first hit off Los Angeles starter Alex Wood. The crowd at Minute Maid Park, where Houston had been 7-0 this postseason, was revved up in anticipation of the Astros having a chance to win the first title in their 56-season history on Sunday.

Instead, the Series will go back to Los Angeles no matter what. Clayton Kershaw starts Game 5 for the Dodgers on Sunday night and Dallas Keuchel for the Astros in a rematch of the opener, when Kershaw pitched Los Angeles to a 3-1 win.ducks-013

Saints CB P.J. Williams carted off on a backboard after head injury

Posted on by

A Week 2 game started on a scary note when New Orleans Saints cornerback P.J. Williams was strapped down and carted off the field following an injury suffered in the first quarter against the New York Giants.

Williams, 23, absorbed two Kellen Winslow Jersey knees to the head on one play and players on the field immediately recognized the seriousness of the injury, frantically waving for medical personnel to help.

The second-year cornerback didn’t appear to move at all, but was conscious and speaking with trainers before he was carted to the locker room.

But if Ryan is to be taken at his King Dunlap Jersey word, then he experienced a change of heart between late Thursday night and early Friday afternoon. He was also apparently still weighing the decision up until the last moment, considering Roman posed for the team picture Friday afternoon, just hours before he was dismissed, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Several months ago, Ryan proclaimed the Bills had “won the offseason.” But it seems as if his grandiose statement put a hex on his team. Since then, almost nothing has gone right in Buffalo. In training camp, star defensive lineman Marcell Dareus was suspended four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, as was offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson. Two other Bills — running back Karlos Williams and linebacker Manny Lawson — were handed down suspensions from the league, but later released by the team.

In addition to those off-field transgressions, the Bills’ defense has been ravaged by injuries. First-round pick Shaq Lawson is on the PUP list while he recovers from shoulder surgery and fellow rookie Reggie Ragland is expected to be out for the entire year after tearing his ACL in training camp.

Up to this point, the most entertaining aspect of the Bills’ season has been Ryan’s obscenity-laced tirade prior to the season-opener against the Baltimore Ravens. “Everything’s questioned,” Ryan yelled, via ESPN. “I forgot to how to f—ing coach. ‘The players don’t respond to Rex, he don’t know what the f— he’s doing anymore.'”

So far, those doing the questioning have been right.

Posts a 2 QBR. Browns snap 10-game streak, beat Bills 6. J.P. Losman,, Edwards, Fitzpatrick, Collins, Brohm, Pelt, Holcomb, and Bledsoe can all get human centipeded. Ian: Toronto. Bob: Last playoff win: December 30. Two months after OJ was acquitted of murder.Our coach’s crowning achievement is going to the Pinstripe Bowl. Our QB’s crowning achievement is existing. Reid: Every game I’ve ever Dennis Rodman Jersey been to, I’ve seen someone wearing a Moorman has had tickets since 1960, the year the team was born. grandfather had the seats his name, dad always pretends that he’s just here to pick up the tickets grandpa’s name. You know why? Because if the name on the account changes, the team put dad at the bottom of the list as a one-year ticket holder and make him sit at the 2 yard line instead of the 50. the Bills ever figure out that grandfather would have to be approximately 147 years old by now? I doubt it. Steve: People were actually excited that Wannstedt was named defensive coordinator before last. UZ: Fuck Fitzpatrick his stupid bearded face with a $24 million dollar gem-encrusted.

AJC: Fuck every player drafted signed Dwight Buycks Jersey after the 1994.The Charlotte HORNETS have been to the playoffs three times since the Bills made the playoffs, and that’s before the Hornets relocated. Peter: First time I saw was at a Bills game against the Raiders. Bills were getting gashed and the crowd was looking away from the field, up 3 rows behind me at a woman who was flashing everyone. They were the worst the history of the world. Amateur has better. One was a baseball, the other a softball, but somehow they both had bologna sized nipples. first titty experience was ruined.mid August of this year, I had lunch across the street from the stadium. I overheard two typical Bills fans discussing the quarterback competition. They said the following: Yeah, it’s between Kolb and that colored.: Fuck Wade Phillips. Were it not for his clock management, the music city miracle forward pass wouldn’t have happened. Sunny: I was at a game a couple of years ago at The. A more appropriate name for a stadium there never was. The game was at 1pm as usual.

This, somewhat well-dressed couple had seats front of us and had obviously hurried to the stadium from their wedding. Like of the other louts at the place, they are drinking their faces off and are wasted before halftime. Fast forward to about the middle of the third quarter, and the girl has now done the stadium name proud and has to be carried out of the stadium. Wearing her wedding dress. Aziza: Fucking Tuel. The kid had 4 wins his 4 years at Washington State. THREE of them were last fucking year. When he broke his collarbone, he was replaced by a fucking walk on. But hey, at least they won the Apple Cup.old Bryce Paup jersey is still considered to be church clothes.A kid got -faced last year that he passed out a creek-bed outside the stadium and died. I was on a message board the other day and instead of applauding a newly passed law that prohibited people from entering this ravine, 90% of the posters complained that they couldn’t take their favorite shortcut to the stadium. Fat, insensitive fucks.

Lidstrom is at the top of that list

Posted on by

Lidstrom is at the top of that list. He is likely to win his sixth Norris Trophy as the NHL’s top defenseman at next week’s awards show Toronto. His fellow Swedes call him perfect. I keep looking at him, looking for a snag from this guy, Red owner Ilitch said. He’s done a great job as the captain. I think he picked a little off. They both work hard and they’re down to earth and humble. The guys really follow him. Lidstrom was beaming with pride. He is one of five players who played on all four of Detroit’s most recent Cup-winning clubs. I’ve been over here for a time and I watched Yzerman hoist it for us three times the past, and I’m very proud of being the first European, Lidstrom said. I’m very proud of being the captain of the Red. much history with the team and great tradition. Zetterberg, destined to be the Red ‘ next Ron Duguay Jersey captain after Lidstrom retires, finished tied with Pittsburgh’s Crosby for the playoff scoring lead with 27 points, a Red club record. Zetterberg was just as strong defensively, particularly this series against Crosby. But he was most proud of seeing his fellow Swede be presented with the Cup from NHL commissioner Bettman. It’s great to see him lifting the Cup and with the ‘C’ on his chest.

It means much for the team and the organization, Zetterberg said. He’s bringing it every night. He’s probably our best player every night. Goaltender Chris Osgood, 10 years after first backstopping the Red to the Cup, completed a successful comeback his second stint with the club. He started the playoffs as the backup, but took over the first round for ineffective Dominik Hasek and was stellar. Coming back here, I always wanted to play Detroit, Osgood said. And just kept fighting, never gave up. Worked on my game and did the right things I needed to do to get to this moment. I never doubted myself. I just needed the opportunity. Rafalski, Valtteri Filppula and Zetterberg scored for the Red, who withstood a late charge by the Penguins. Pittsburgh cut the lead to 3 on a power-play goal by Marian Hossa with 1 remaining. The Penguins nearly tied it the final seconds when a shot by Hossa bounced around dangerously the crease behind Osgood. Clinging to a one-goal lead, Zetterberg scored on a strange play at 7 of the third period. His shot squirted through goalie – Fleury’s pads. The puck sat the crease, but nobody except referee Joannette knew where it was. Fleury fell back and knocked it into his own net. For the second time three, the Red killed a lengthy two- advantage by Pittsburgh. This one lasted for 1 midway through the first period, after Rafalski had given them a 1 lead with a power-play goal at 5. Fleury then let a soft goal to Filppula at 8 of the Ron Greschner Jersey second period, which gave the Red a 2 lead. Evgeni Malkin scored his first goal of the series, on the power play, to cut Pittsburgh’s deficit to 2 at 15 of the second period. After being shut out the first two, the Penguins played the Red tough. But Detroit had too much skill, experience and determination to be denied. We were more battle-tested this year than the last two playoffs, Holland said.

ONE of the stars of Power Rangers has been arrested over the murder of his roommate. Medina Jr, who played the red ranger on Power Rangers Wild Force, has been charged with one count of murder for the fatal stabbing of Sutter last. However, the actor was re-arrested yesterday and has been charged with murder. Medina allegedly stabbed Sutter at their California home with a Samurai sword the abdomen.

Related articles Waiting a year to charge someone can prejudice a client; memories become faded, you may not be able to find percipient witnesses, and crime scenes can get corrupted. Medina played Cole Evans, or the Red Wild Force Ranger, Power Rangers Wild Force 2002. He went on to as Deker Power Rangers Samurai. The actor also had appearances ER and CSI: Miami.

Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr.: Can’t control who likes, doesn’t like me

Posted on by

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. doesn’t think he is well-liked “anywhere” around the NFL.

“I don’t know if I’m necessarily liked anywhere, really,” Beckham said Wednesday when asked if there was any lingering resentment among the Dallas Cowboys following his celebrated one-handed catch. “It just is what it is when we’re on the field; off the field, there’s no hard feelings for me anywhere. At the end of the day, it’s football.

“I can’t control who resents, likes, doesn’t like, in a sense. We just go out there, handle our business, play football and keep it moving from there.”

Beckham, 23, is set to start his third professional season with a matchup Sunday afternoon against the Cowboys and cornerback Brandon Carr, who was on the wrong end of Beckham’s famous, behind-the-ear grab two years ago.

Two of Beckham’s three least productive games last season actually came against Carr, with the Cowboys limiting the Pro Bowl receiver to nine catches for 79 yards in the two meetings.

“It just happened that way,” Beckham said. “First game last year was in Dallas’ stadium and, like I said, we really didn’t hit the ground running. It was kind of lackadaisical and we were going through the motions. Make sure this year we hit it and get it right.”

The names of Brown, wide receiver Anquan Boldin and running back Reggie Bush were mentioned during Beckham’s 15-minute news conference Wednesday; he worked out with all three this offseason.

Fangio stressed that he is not upset with Floyd, the ninth overall pick, but is concerned about the rookie’s development, or lack thereof.

“I’m disappointed that, yes, he got sick and missed a few days of practice,” Fangio said. “I’m disappointed he dinged his shoulder and missed a few days of practice and then tweaked a hamstring and missed four or five days of practice. Yeah, I’m disappointed that happened, but I’m not mad at him. He didn’t do it on purpose. But it has retarded his development a little bit.”

Floyd did not react much when informed of Fangio’s comments.

“I think I’m ready as I can be, when my number is called, to go out there and do whatever it takes and help us win,” Floyd said.

“I don’t feel much pressure at all. Because I know me, and I’ll go out there and give it the best I can, and that’s all I can do.”

Bears general manager Ryan Pace cited Floyd’s rare combination of height (6-foot-4), athleticism and speed as justification for trading up two spots to get him in the draft. Floyd, who had 17 sacks in 38 careers games in college, tested extremely well at the NFL scouting combine in February.

However, Floyd’s playing weight is an ongoing concern. The Bears put him on a special nutritional program to pack on pounds over the summer. Listed at 240 pounds in Chicago’s official Week 1 roster, Floyd played much lighter than that at Georgia. But Floyd, who refused to disclose his exact playing weight, said he is only “2 pounds” away from his target goal.

Fangio said the manner in which Floyd handles himself physically will determine the amount of playing time he receives.

Eric Ebron taking recovery slowly, unsure for Week 1

Posted on by

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — For the past three weeks, Eric Ebron has watched from the sidelines. The Detroit Lions tight end hasn’t practiced. He hasn’t played in games. He has been doing some mentoring of younger tight ends, and that’s about it.

All the while, he has had one thing in his head as he has watched the Lions play without him.

Harbaugh has talked with Kaepernick two or three times over the years and knows him through his brother Jim, who drafted Kaepernick in 2011 and coached him for four seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. He mentioned Kaepernick comes from a great family and was raised the right way, which “reflects in how successful he’s been.”

But Harbaugh said it’s a fine line between standing up for what you believe in and not becoming a distraction to the team. He tells his players that you have to make sure you believe what you say publicly because you have to own it.

“You respect our team, our organization and the other players,” Harbaugh said. “You respect the mission that we’re on and what we’re trying to accomplish. None of us ever want us to detract or disrespect the efforts of all the other players on the football team. That’s the balance that all of us have to strike when we speak out about something like that.”

What’s the best team this year’s salary cap can buy? This is my third year building a roster that answers that very question.

Martin Halloran, the San Francisco Police Officers Association president, sent a letter Monday to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and 49ers CEO Jed York denouncing Kaepernick’s “ill-advised” statements and a “naivete” and “total lack of sensitivity” toward police, along with an “incredible lack of knowledge” about officer-involved shootings.

The police union invited Kaepernick or anyone else from the league to visit the San Francisco police academy to build communication and understanding about the profession.

“I only wish Mr. Kaepernick could see the emotional and psychological challenges that our officers face following a fatal encounter,” Halloran wrote. “Some are so affected they never return to the streets. In short, Mr. Kaepernick has embarrassed himself, the 49er organization, and the NFL based on a false narrative and misinformation that lacks any factual basis.”

Kaepernick, who has sat through the anthem at all three 49ers preseason games so far, is prepared to keep fighting for what he believes in, even alone.

“The fact that it has blown up like this, I think it’s a good thing. It brings awareness,” Kaepernick said Sunday. “Now, I think people are really talking about it. Having conversations about how to make change. What’s really going on in this country. And we can move forward. …There is police brutality. People of color have been targeted by police. So that’s a large part of it and they’re government officials. They are put in place by the government. So that’s something that this country has to change. There’s things we can do to hold them more accountable. Make those standards higher.”

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that he meets with his players every year to discuss the national anthem.

David Amerson’s success secret? No more video games

Posted on by

David Amerson finished last season as one of the NFL’s most-improved cornerbacks. Deep-sixing the Xbox helped.

After signing a four-year, $38 million extension last week, the Raiders cover man explained how he went from getting cut by Washington last September to becoming a plug-and-play starter for Oakland.

“It wasn’t really rocket science, to be honest with you. Once I got here, I matured,” Amerson said Tuesday, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. “Instead of going home and playing video games all night and stuff like that, it was a much different approach. I was going home and I was in my playbook or watching the film or looking at my notes on whatever team we were playing that week. It was really just the little stuff. That’s what football is.”

Amerson acknowledged that he “matured” after the Raiders signed him, saying: “I came in the league and I was 21 years old. Not saying I’m much older now, but three years, I’m 24 now, I’ve learned a lot in three years. When I got here, I was in the right mindset. I was in the right mindset and the right maturity level and professionalism. I was taking that transition of becoming a professional. I think it worked out for the best.”

It certainly did for the Raiders, who used the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Amerson as a starter from Week 4 on and plan to do so again across from free-agent pickup Sean Smith. The Redskins, though, wish Amerson’s awakening came sooner after seeing so little from the player they used a second-round pick on in 2013.

That’s the risk in dumping developing talent, though. You never know when the light will go on — a maddening guessing game for general managers, with this round going to Oakland’s Reggie McKenzie.

The Star features two outdoor practice fields, a 12,000-seat indoor stadium that the city’s high school teams will use, a franchise hall of fame, and an entertainment area with shops, restaurants and a hotel.

A new day.. A new way..The Cowboys Way! Welcome to the Star! The new home of the @dallascowboys
— Charlotte J Anderson (@CJonesAnderson) July 21, 2016

“I think The Star and our new facility out at The Star will be special,” Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “It will be great for the players to have a facility like that to go in and out of the Ford Center and have times when you need to get out of the weather and get their jobs accomplished. Then, I think you’ll see it’s state of the art in every way in terms of the training room and the training table and nutrition. All the things we’re going to offer for our players to hopefully help them be champions.”
