Ex-Rams coach Jeff Fisher wants credit for team’s recent success

Jan

He is always the locker room with us, practices and games.It’s going to be different for him being that role but I think he’s going to do really well, said.Zach Randolph led the way with 22 points and 13 rebounds as the Grizzlies defeat the 97.

There is also a tongue–cheek Foreword by K, which simply reads, I have nothing more to say.The first is not necessarily the result of the second.some ways I’m still getting over it.Call it a false start.

People are going to say what they want to say,’ he told USA TODAY Sports.Everything is on the platter to say, ‘Go!And teams wait and watch for the next move from the former Heat guard.There is no prediction of the future, especially with sports and players – particularly those who suit up for the Yankees.

Despite the disastrous result, he said he’d try the same thing again.

Carr’s last shot came on a scramble with 39 seconds remaining in the game. He attempted to stretch the ball across the pylon, but fumbled the ball out of the end zone. The Cowboys took possession, and the victory, dropping the Raiders to 6-8.

“We talk about ball security, jumping with two hands, stuff like that … I honestly didn’t think I was going to drop the ball,” Carr said Friday (via ESPN.com). “When I took off to jump, in my head I thought it was a touchdown because I knew I had the corner. From a mindset standpoint, looking back, yeah, I want to do something different because we lost. But from making that decision, I always think of it in basketball terms — I’d rather take the last shot and miss it than pass it off and try and do it another way.”

If Carr had played it safe, the Raiders might have reached the end zone on a subsequent play — he’d picked up enough yardage for a first down — or at least had a chance to kick a field goal to tie the score. Then again, hindsight is everything. If Carr scores the touchdown, he’s a hero. He didn’t, which explains why he had to describe his thought process.

Carr said he has no regrets, and he’d try the same thing again … but maybe with more focus on ball security.packers_142_3455c34896b7b7d9-180x180

With Elliott out especially, the Cowboys need much more from the defense than they’re getting.

Jan
03

Last year, with a dominant line and Elliott getting things done on the ground, the Cowboys were able to control the clock and rely on the defense to do just enough. That’s changed. The Chargers had the ball for over 36 minutes in Thursday’s win.

You not be able to post a comment this post.NFL Comparison: Fili Moala, Indianapolis Colts Odrick started 31-of-44 at State, recording 104 tackles with 14 sacks for minus-97 yards, 25 stops for losses totaling 121 yards and five quarterback pressures Caused a fumble, blocked two kicks, recorded a safety and deflected five passes Became the 80th player school history to earn All-American honors , including the 77th since Paterno became the Nittany Lions’ head coach.At Wednesday’s practice, Trotz kept them together, moving Marcus Johansson to the right side of that longtime duo.He has good vision and good hockey sense.It’s a lot of moving parts free agency.You have to love the game to do that and he does it.When he was nine, joined Little League Baseball and made it to the all- team when he was 11 and 12.

On Wednesday, Olsen further defended himself, via the Charlotte Observer’s Joe Person:

“We have scouts at every game across the league. I’m going to have enough trouble on my hands broadcasting a game let alone looking for little nuances on the sideline. I don’t know how much time I’ll have for stealing of secrets,” Olsen said Wednesday.

When the Bruins traded for Horton, the third overall pick the 2003 draft, he was one year older than Landeskog is now and had better numbers up that point his NHL career, including a 30-goal .He often gestures to the painted wall outside the Redskins’ locker room when explaining he has not accomplished what he wants to.So as for career I take Colorado duo.The Boston College recruit is a pure goal-scorer and draws penalties with his skill.After Slavin put a perfectly placed backhander under the bar, he stopped the other 21 shots that came his way through the first two periods .If these claims are easy to find on the interwebs, then YOU find them, since you are the one making the accusation.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin’s daring Patriots comments just might work

Dec
20

Let’s also understand we’re talking about a coach with great job security — you’re not going to hear Giants coach Ben McAdoo uttering such blasphemous statements. Tomlin has a .655 regular-season winning percentage in his 11 seasons at the helm. He has led the Steelers to a soon-to-be eight playoff appearances and two Super Bowls, including a victory over Arizona in Super Bowl XLIII. The Rooneys have employed just three head coaches over the last 48 years: Chuck Noll, Bill Cowher and Tomlin. He’s not going anywhere else anytime soon.

Knowing they needed an onside kick recovery regardless, the Patriots took a field goal rather than a fourth-and-goal play from the Dolphins’ 15-yard line. (New England failed to recover the onside kick a couple minutes later.) 27-20, Dolphins

The Ducks defenseman is spreading awareness in honor of friend Rick Rypien. He also dishes on his team’s chances, advanced stats, the Golden Knights, dressing up like a security guard to fool his teammates — and yes, the Superman Punches.

Havelock plays for Morristown Surge of the AIHL, which is a pro roller hockey league. He has captained the team since it started and is consistently one of the best players on the squad.

There were 20 penalties for 239 yards and, while some of those penalties were justified, several were questionable calls that even ESPN’s broadcast team of Sean McDonough and Jon Gruden called out. The Bengals remained an undisciplined group, flagged 13 times for 173 yards. eagles_036_7d21b9ec06d6b23f-180x180

Giants’ Eli Apple threatened walk-out after team ripped him with criticism

Dec
13

Apple, who was a first round draft pick last year, has missed practice to attend to his mother, who had brain surgery earlier this month.

The Giants have kept Apple inactive the last two games against the Chiefs and Redskins, but it’s not clear whether he will play against the Raiders on Dec. 3.

Louisville had won NCAA titles in men’s basketball under Denny Crum in 1980 and 1986, but most other sports were underfunded and neglected. Jurich says he spoke with Lamar Daniel, a former investigator in the U.S. Office for Civil Rights, who told him Louisville was facing a potential lawsuit over its failure to comply with Title IX. “He said, ‘This is the worst school in the United States,'” Jurich says. Louisville’s athletics budget then was $16.5 million. Jurich embarked on an ambitious growth strategy that would solve Louisville’s Title IX problems and build up nonrevenue sports such as swimming and soccer while ensuring that the basketball and football teams were successful enough to support the enterprise.

Under heavy duress, McCown played his worst game of the season, completing only six of 12 passes for 46 yards, an interception and a lost fumble. He was replaced both times by Petty, who made his 2017 debut. Petty, who beat out Hackenberg for the No. 2 job in the preseason, struggled mightly (2-for-9, 14 yards). He has four career starts, all coming last season.chargers_004

Or even great ones if Wingo’s tweet becomes a harbinger of what’s to come.

Carson Wentz was the MVP favorite going into his bye week, and he’ll build on that case in this game.
But more than talent has led to the resurgence under once-embattled coordinator Dennis Allen.

“Honestly, it’s just executing the game plan and guys doing a good job trusting everybody else as a whole,” said Robertson, who notched five tackles Sunday as New Orleans’ starting weakside linebacker. “Each guy is remembering that we’re one of the 11.

“That trust is something that has been growing week in and week out. It’s also a whole lot easier when guys are winning. The more wedo that, wedo a whole lot of good things.”

Or even great ones if Wingo’s tweet becomes a harbinger of what’s to come.

Philadelphia registers another three-and-out. Dallas will start its next drive on its 25 following the punt.

Dez Bryant drops a pass from Prescott on third down and the Cowboys punt again. Philadelphia leads 7-6 with 12:14 remaining in the second quarter.

The Eagles go three-and-out and punt. Wentz has thrown incompletions on his last six passes.

They ended up losing 4-1 in a game in which they had two golden chances to tie the score late only to have one goal disallowed and another Matthews shot go off the crossbar. The last five minutes of that game were like an action movie, even though Toronto ended up on the wrong side of it with a pair of empty-netters icing it for Arizona. You just never know what to expect with this team.patriots_033-180x180

Giants won’t fire coach Ben McAdoo during the season, report says

Nov
23

Rumors have been swirling that the Giants are extremely unhappy with coach Ben McAdoo as struggles continue to mount this season.

“I don’t take things personal in this business,” McAdoo said. “First thing is first, I have an open-door policy. Any player that has anything to say is welcome to come in the front door and talk. I had a couple conversations over the last couple weeks, and I welcome those conversations.

“The next thing is pretty simple. It’s hard to help a player when they don’t put their name on the quote. If they need some help, come see me. I’m the guy that can help.”

With the exception of big games in Dallas, Philadelphia and Seattle, the Week 9 NFL scoreboard was packed with key divisional tilts around the league. Buccaneers vs. Saints, Falcons vs. Panthers, Colts vs. Texans, Cardinals vs. 49ers and, on Monday night, Lions vs. Packers would make division races more clear by the end of the week.

As for that big game in Dallas, the Cowboys, still able to use running back Ezekiel Elliott, handled the powerful Chiefs. In Philadelphia, the Eagles, the best team in the NFL record-wise, destroyed a Broncos team still searching for its offensive identity.

The night cap Sunday was a game in Miami, where the struggling Raiders were able to hold off the reeling Dolphins and keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

The Morning Huddle: Roger Goodell Wants to Unify the NFL—Good Luck With That

Nov
14

Roger Goodell and NFL team owners have grown wary of fan resentment over players’ protesting racial injustice during the national anthem. Yesterday, the commissioner sent a letter to NFL teams in which he said, “We believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem.” But rather than endorse Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’s plan to bench players who kneel, or the Dolphins’ new edict to keep would-be kneelers in the locker room for the anthem, Goodell said, “We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues?.” He later added that a new plan would include an in-season platform to promote “positive change in our country.” Ultimately, he wants a “unified” league.

Klay Thompson scored 29 points and became the 11th player in franchise history to eclipse 9,000 career points. Durant wound up with 28 points and Curry 27.

“Knowing when to get down, not trying to play Superman every single play, jumping over guys,” he said. “… What not to say to the media, what you can say to the media. Everything was so public that happened in D.C. that different people took it different ways. I got a lot of respect for the coaches I was able to be under and learn from my time in the league. I really feel like given the opportunity, I’ll make the most of my next opportunity and go out and help a team.”

Griffin was also asked if, earlier in his career, he could have envisioned he and Kaepernick not being in the league in 2017. Griffin was not asked about recent protests by NFL players, which started with Kaepernick during the 2016 preseason.nike_cardinals-098

The Cougars are home against Stanford next Saturday and need to win to stay relevant in the Pac-12 North.

Nov

If coach Jimbo Fisher was hoping to keep his team from fracturing, Pugh’s assessment of what has gone wrong this season didn’t help matters.

Brown, who stands at 86 Overall, returned from his holdout last week to play well in his first game of the season, against the team he now joins. When plugging him, the biggest improvements in critical individual attributes are +24 Awareness, +15 Pass Block and +14 Run Block.

The Jaguars lead the league in sacks and are on pace to threaten the record for most sacks in a season. They made their defensive line even better by picking up Dareus, who is rated 83 Overall, making him their top-rated player on the interior.

Jacksonville now has four players rated over 80 on the defensive line, led by Calais Campbell and his 93 Overall rating.

Washington State: The Cougars have lost two of three and fallen behind Stanford and Washington in the Pac-12 North standings. With Falk being replaced, things are looking shaky for Leach’s team.

Arizona: Rodriguez was supposed to be on the hot seat but Tate has pushed the Wildcats firmly into contention in the Pac-12 North and must be one of the most spectacular newcomers on the college football scene this season.

Arizona: The Wildcats look to make it five wins in a row over Pac-12 foes at USC in a game that, believe it or not, will decide who is in first place in the Pac-12 South.

After the 2015 season, Williams was replaced by Dusty Baker, who won 192 games in two seasons and led the club to two straight National League East pennants. But the Nats were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs both times under Baker. Earlier in October, eight days after Washington lost 9-8 to the Cubs in Game 5 of the NLDS, the team announced that Baker would not be returning next season.patriots_113

Fantasy Focus Football Podcast board bets scoreboard for 2017

Oct
29

The dip in Elliott’s production through the first five weeks of the season is part of the reason Dallas finds itself third in the NFC East, looking up at Washington and first-place Philadelphia. If this game wasn’t an anomaly for Elliott and he returns to his 2016 season form, Dallas still has a shot at the division.

Of course, that’s contingent upon Elliott’s availability to play. A hearing is scheduled for Oct. 30 on the NFLPA’s motion for a preliminary injunction that would delay his six-game suspension until Elliott’s court case against the NFL is complete.

The 3-3 Cowboys were favored to win the division before the season started. Dallas hasn’t looked like the same team that went 13-3 last year, but losses to the Rams and Packers were close. This team could easily be 5-1. If Elliott keeps running like this and if the court lets him keep playing, it could be enough to turn this Cowboys season around.

The two sides issued a joint statement after that first meeting: “The NFL and NFLPA met today to discuss the important issue of social activism by NFL players. Roger Goodell, DeMaurice Smith, Eric Winston, Robert Kraft, John Mara, Art Rooney, and other player leaders engaged in a productive conversation. We are all committed to an ongoing dialogue.”

Lockhart also told reporters Wednesday that the 10 highest-rated TV shows this fall are NFL games. NFL ratings this season are down 7.5 percent through the first six games compared to last year, a decline some polls attribute to player protests during the national anthem.

“I can’t really worry about what people say because there’s a certain part of people who are not going to believe you regardless of what you do,” Bennett said Thursday. “So for me, it’s continuously stay on my position and keep doing what I do.”4

Dolphins offensive line coach resigns after video of him snorting powdery white substance surfaces

Oct
22

A video surfaced online this weekend that appears to show Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster snorting a powdery white substance.

The Dolphins are aware and investigating, the Miami Herald reports. On Monday morning, Foerster resigned from the Dolphins. He and the team both released statements.

Someone in the organization reportedly confirmed to the paper that the video is of Foerster :

The Miami Dolphins are aware of an internet video that apparently shows offensive line coach Chris Foerster snorting an unknown powdery substance while at work at some point in his NFL career.

Ezekiel Elliott’s turn with the ball was enough to push into Green Bay territory and push concern into the hearts of Packer fans everywhere, but the play devolved into performance art from there. Myriad Dallas players, from wideouts to offensive linemen got a touch as the world’s sloppiest game of rugby unwound at AT&T Stadium. At one point, the ball bounced into the hands of Packer linebacker Nick Perry … who just stood there as the referees stared at him as if to say, “Well, what’re you gonna do?”

A rogue Cowboy swatted the ball from his hands, restarting the scrum, but it was all for naught. Two laterals later, Quentin Rollins pounced on the ball and took a knee, putting an end to Green Bay’s dramatic road comeback.

What this means for the Packers: At 4-1, Green Bay takes over first place in the NFC North and sent a message that Aaron Rodgers remains one of the league’s most dangerous quarterbacks in the game’s final two minutes. Nick Perry, however, could use a rules refresher.

What this means for the Cowboys: Whoever designs the team’s last-ditch, Hail Mary plays either deserves a raise or a demotion.sabres_004
