Can Bill Belichick and the Patriots move on from another set of star coordinators?

Posted on by

In any decision that involves personnel on the team, I always try to do what’s best for the football team, Belichick said this week. That’s what goes into it. There could be a thousand things. So if you’re signing a player, drafting a player, however you acquire a player or coach or a scout or an administrative position, then I always try to think of what’s the best thing for the football team.

Limited Womens Chuck Howley Jersey For now, it’s all about the Patriots’ push for an eighth Super Bowl appearance with Belichick and Brady and a sixth title.

Each year is its own year, safety Duron Harmon said during a news conference this week. Each day is its own day. And he [Belichick] does a great job of just literally focusing on what you’re supposed to focus on that week 锟斤拷 not looking down the road, not looking in the rearview mirror but focusing on the task at hand. He does a great job of getting all his players to buy into Colton Parayko Authentic Jersey that, myself included 锟斤拷 just focusing, focusing on the task at hand.

And when you do that, you put all your energy and your effort into that, it allows you to have a good grasp on the game. It allows you to play the game the right way, respect the game. And he just does a great job of it.

Beasley was one of the better slot receivers in the league, but this year he is struggling, averaging just 0.87 yards per route run from the slot, nearly a yard fewer than he had in 2016. Lining up against him will be slot corner Patrick Robinson, who ranks eighth among 32 slot corners this season for yards allowed per cover snap (0.89) and No. 1 for passer rating against when targeted in coverage (54.4).

The Rams’ offense is the second-most efficient in the NFL, scoring 2.56 points per drive. The Vikings boast one of the league’s toughest defenses, allowing 1.6 points per drive (ninth) along with the second-fewest rushing yards allowed per carry (3.4). Los Angeles, however, should be able to see running back Todd Gurley take advantage of Vikings middle linebacker Eric Kendricks in space.
Authentic Youth Marian Gaborik Jersey
Gurley is fourth in the league in rushing (754 yards) with a league-leading seven rushing touchdowns, adding 35 receptions and three receiving touchdowns catching passes out of the backfield. Kendricks ranks 45th against the run among 54 qualified linebackers, per Pro Football Focus, and 25th in pass coverage.

Ex-Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez faces more allegations

Posted on by

The woman who accused former Arizona football coach Rich Rodriguez of sexual harassment has filed a second notice of claim against Rodriguez, his wife and the University of Arizona seeking $8.5 million.

The woman and her husband met with someone working on the investigation, the new claim says, but they ended the interview to seek legal counsel.

An email to Rodriguez’s attorney, Leo Beus, seeking comment about the new claim was not immediately returned. When contacted after the first claim was filed, Beus told ESPN the allegations were False. Period.

In a letter outlining the allegations to the Arizona Board of Regents, Jimenez concluded a jury trial could lead to more money than what they are seeking in a settlement.

Jeremy Lamb had 18 points, and Dwight Howard added 14 points, 16 rebounds and six blocks for the Hornets, who have won six of their last nine to improve to 19-26. Marvin Williams and Nic Batum each had 14 points.

Walker made five 3s, but struggled shooting the ball over finishing 6 of 20 from the field.

That all didn’t matter to coach Steve Clifford, who was happy his team could get a win.

Despite a solid shooting game, the Knicks couldn’t answer the aggressive transition game favored by the Lakers, who put up their Jimmy Garoppolo Youth jersey highest-scoring performance in two weeks.

They just played harder than us in everything, said Enes Kanter, who had 12 points and 14 rebounds for New York. They got a lot of offensive rebounds. We got a lot of turnovers. I don’t think we can play like this in road games and expect to get a win.

Tom Brady named NFL MVP, Todd Gurley, Calais Campbell win player of year honors from NFL writers

Posted on by

Tom Brady, who led the NFL in passing yards at age 40, has been named the Pro Football Writers of America 2017 NFL MVP, the organization announced Wednesday.

Lining up across from Brady will be Campbell, the anchor of the Jaguars’ stingy defense this season. A 31-year-old veteran, Campbell had 14.5 sacks, tied for second in the league with DeMarcus Lawrence of the Cowboys (the Cardinals’ Chandler Jones led the NFL with 17 sacks). Campbell had 67 tackles and three forced fumbles. The Jags defense ranked second in the NFL in points allowed this season at only 16.8 per game.

Gurley, the workhorse of a Rams offense that led the NFL in scoring in 2017 (29.9 ppg), took his game to another level this season. The Rams’ first-round pick in 2015, Gurley, 23, rushed for 1,305 yards (4.7 yards per carry) and added 64 receptions for 788 yards. He led the NFL in total touchdowns (19) and yards from scrimmage (2,093).

Gurley, quarterback Jared Goff and the Rams’ rejuvenated offense led the team to an 11-5 regular season mark, the franchise’s first winning season since 2003.

Florida State has topped 100 points five times this season, and the No. 12 Seminoles lead the ACC in scoring at 85.8 points per game. But they won their biggest game of this season with their lowest point total in more than two years.

And for her contributions in Sunday’s 50-49 victory at No. 2 Louisville and in an 81-79 overtime victory at Wake Forest on Thursday, Florida State senior Shakayla Thomas is the espnW national player of the week.patriots_153_66a5d5688641d3cc-180x180

The Packers came out a bit flat against the Bengals on Sunday and saw themselves behind 14-7 in the first half.

That was just the second pick-six thrown by Rodgers in his career, with the other coming all the way back in 2009. You can follow along with all the action here.
Elite Kids Corey Peters Jersey Women's Adidas Jack Eichel Authentic Purple NHL Jersey: Buffalo Sabres #15 Fights Cancer Practice
Although we don’t know if the injury has hindered Brady’s throwing ability, Patriots fans will be happy to hear that that everything actually seems fine in that department. According to NFL.com, Brady was able to zing the ball pretty well in practice on Friday, which seems to indicate that he hasn’t lost any zip on his passes.

There is one giant downside Reggie Jackson Jersey to the injury, though. According to Tom Curran of NBC Boston, Brady has only been taking shotgun snaps because the team doesn’t want to risk aggravating the injury. If that’s the case, it wouldn’t be crazy to see the Patriots go nearly all shotgun on Sunday, because there’s no way they’d want to risk Brady re-injuring his thumb or having his stitches rip open on national television and potentially turning into a bloody mess.

There have been 20 different times since 1970 that a team has swept a division rival in the regular season and then faced them again in the playoffs, according to Elias Sports Bureau. That team completed the three-game sweep 13 of those 20 times. So history is on the Saints’ side in this one.

Panic index: Cam Newton’s coming off a three-interception performance and the worst quarterback rating of his career against the Falcons in Week 17. He’s got a career 7-7 record against New Orleans. If anyone should be panicking, it’s Panthers fans.

The Raiders officially named Jon Gruden their 22nd coach in franchise history. He will get the longest coaching deal in NFL history — a 10-year contract likely approaching $100 million — sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The team held an introductory news conference Jan. 9. Gruden, who coached Oakland from 1998 to 2001 and has been working as an ESPN analyst, is returning to the Raiders to replace Jack Del Rio, who was fired after the regular-season finale.

It looked like more of the same early Saturday when he finished the first two quarters with no touchdowns and one interception.

Posted on by

He finally managed to get the Titans rolling and back in striking range in the third quarter when he threw a touchdown to himself.
Men's Solomon Hill Swingman Red Adidas Jersey: NBA New Orleans Pelicans #44 Alternate
That play proved to be a turning point for the Titans, swinging momentum in Tennessee’s favor.

Derrick Henry closed the gap further with a 35-rushing touchdown, and Mariota finally gave the Titans a lead when he found Eric Decker for a 22-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Mariota finished with 205 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception and played with toughness in the second half, even springing Henry on a game-clinching run by throwing a key block.

The Titans’ slow start wasn’t all Mariota’s fault
If the Titans hope to get Mariota on track and off to a fast start next week, the offense around him needs to do him more favors.

On one Ryan Kesler Jersey scoring opportunity, he was annihilated by Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson, who had a free path to the quarterback because Henry completely missed his block.

On Mariota’s interception, he threw into traffic, which was hard not to do when three receivers were all in the same place.

New England will have its chance at ring No. 6 against Philadelphia, which will be playing for its first Lombardi Trophy. Here’s an initial look at their matchup with expert picks.

Elite Kids Doug Gilmour Jersey
After several days of thumb-related mystery, Brady shed some light on the injury, which occurred Wednesday in practice. He refused to say how many stitches it required, but he acknowledged there was concern.

I never had anything like it, said Brady, who expects the stitches to be removed mid-week. I’ve had a couple of crazy injuries, but this was pretty crazy. I wasn’t sure how I was going to do.

Wednesday, Wednesday night, Thursday, I wasn’t sure. Friday, gained a little confidence. Saturday, trying to figure out what we could do. Sunday, try to come out here and make it happen.

Bortles was excellent as a runner in all the ways he was bad as a passer.

Posted on by

When he dropped back to throw, he would seem flustered 锟斤拷 his footwork would become panicked, and he would fail to see open receivers. Yet as a runner, he consistently made the correct decision.
Youth Kirk Gibson Replica Navy Blue Majestic Jersey: MLB Detroit Tigers #23 Alternate Cool Base
It’d be easy to say that he simply took advantage of a glitch in a Bills defense that hadn’t planned on Bortles being a running threat, except that Buffalo of all teams should have seen this coming. Among all QBs with at least 1,000 career passing attempts, Bortles is fourth all time at 6.32 yards per carry, behind Michael Vick, Bobby Douglass, and Randall Cunningham, and ahead of Colin Kaepernick (sixth), Marcus Mariota (ninth), Steve Young (10th), Russell Wilson (13th), and literally every other qualifying quarterback ever.

The first order of Brice Johnson Womens Jersey business when you show up to the facility before the exit meeting is cleaning out your locker. Find yourself a trash bag, load it up with the gear you want to keep. Shirts, sweats, cleats, and gym shoes. All items to give to family or to wear in offseason workouts. Some teams allow you to grab your helmet and uniforms. Some gift them to you, others charge for those items. I can’t figure out why it’s not all free to the players. There are trash bins all around the locker room to clear out the things you don’t want to keep, as well as a shoe bin to donate any shoes.

The mood in the locker room while this is happening can depend on how the season ended. Teams are either just glad their bad season is over because it didn’t go well, or disappointed their season ended in a miserable fashion, like Ravens and losing out on a playoff bid.

Saints had the perfect trick play for second down, but they used it on 3rd-and-1

Posted on by

wings_1034The Saints faced a third-and-1 from their own 36-yard line, and decided to pull tricks out of their back pockets to get the first down, behind 20-14.

Drew Brees threw the ball backward quickly to Willie Snead (a high school quarterback), who had a wide open Alvin Kamara for what likely would have been a touchdown. The pass would fall just out of his reach:

Outside work, they don’t spend much time together. Diggs, who lives alone, recently moved to downtown Minneapolis for the restaurant scene; Thielen and his family settled in Woodbury, miles away from the nearest Vikings player. But “it’s like they’re twins,” says Patterson. They huddle at each other’s stalls, swapping notes on footwork and coverages. They lock eyes in meeting rooms, juking through imaginary slants in tandem. In the offseason Thielen texts Diggs reminders like GIVE YOUR BODY A BREAK—odd, considering how Thielen himself scheduled family vacations to Orlando each March so he could catch passes at Jon Gruden’s QB camp.

After the game in the locker room, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was dancing with the team as they were hyping him up:

It was a big win for the Eagles. They were the NFC’s top seed, but many had them losing this game against the Falcons with Nick Foles at quarterback in place of the injured Carson Wentz.

His contract is a little tricky to trade. First: Manning has two years left, with $22 million in salary, $10 million in roster bonuses, and $1 million total in workout bonuses. Two years, $33 million. Reasonable. But Manning also has a no-trade clause in the deal. That means he could refuse a trade if he wants, or he could block a trade to teams he wouldn’t want to play. It also means if he chooses to waive the no-trade clause, the team that acquires him might have to sweeten the deal by adding either money or time to it.

Heyward tore his left pectoral muscle in Week 10 last season (he played the rest of that game with one usable arm, then sat out the remainder of the season), but by then the young core was starting to take hold. Rookie defensive backs Artie Burns (Miami) and Sean Davis (Maryland), thrown into the fold immediately, were growing confident. Shazier remained a force. The unit’s improvement—No. 4 in yards allowed over the last seven games of 2016—alternately depressed and motivated Heyward, who poured over so much of his old film, holed up, lights dimmed, that “I looked like Tom Hanks in Cast Away,” he says. Later, “watching them make that playoff run, watching them lose [to New England], it ate me up inside.”

He came back stronger this season, with 12 sacks (tied for eighth in the NFL), but Heyward’s most important work has been behind the scenes, rallying the Steelers around his old running mate.

Seahawks fire OC Darrell Bevell after 7 seasons

Posted on by

Darrell Bevell’s time in Seattle has come to an end.
Youth Nike Chicago Bears #76 Tom Compton White Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
The Seahawks fired their offensive coordinator Wednesday after seven seasons with the team, the team announced Wednesday. The team also released offensive line coach Tom Cable.

Dennis Smith Jr. Womens Jersey Despite quarterback Russell Wilson leading the NFL with 34 touchdown passes this season, the Seahawks struggled to stay consistent, finishing 9-7 and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2011. Still, wide receiver Doug Baldwin defended Bevell when the season came to an end.

Kids Kevin Greene Jersey Since Hayward suffered a dislocated left ankle and a fractured fibula on opening night, five minutes and 11 seconds into his Celtics debut, he has been flanked by doctors, trainers, physical therapists and a sports psychologist. They are all trying to rehab his body and mind from one of the most gruesome and public injuries ever suffered on a court. But another element of his recovery unfolds alone in the darkness, where he opens the Discord app to check whether any members of his clan are online.

If Gordon is there, says Will Fahrenbach, I’m hopping on with him. Fahrenbach is a 28-year-old MRI technologist who lives in a two-bedroom condo in Salt Lake City. He met Hayward seven years ago through Halo, when GTime was a rookie for the Jazz, and later invited him to a New Year’s Eve party. They celebrated each other’s weddings and mourned a friend’s death.

Otherwise they might have been better prepared in a rematch against the team that blew them out in Week 5 of the regular season.

Perhaps Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell sending a late-night tweet about New England on the eve of the Jacksonville game was a sign of how little the Steelers thought about the Johnny Bower Jersey Jaguars. If that wasn’t an indicator, the first quarter of the game provided better evidence of how the AFC’s No. 2 seed underestimated the visiting No. 3 seed.

With the Jaguars leading 14-0 and the first-quarter clock winding down, the Steelers had a chance to shift momentum with a score, as they had driven deep into Jacksonville territory. But on a fourth-and-1 from the 21-yard, an ambitious pitch to Bell was stuffed.

At 26鈥?, Boston has the best record in the Eastern Conference. Point guard Kyrie Irving is a top鈥揻ive MVP candidate. Power forward Al Horford could be the Defensive Player of the Year. Rookie Jayson Tatum and second-year wing Jaylen Brown are revelations. But when president of basketball operations Danny Ainge watches the juggernaut he assembled, he can’t help but scan the arena for the missing piece. What do we need? Ainge wonders, the question that haunts general managers everywhere. A versatile 6’8 defender who can switch one through four, handle the ball, create offense for others and make shots. That’s what we need. That’s Gordon Hayward.

Slovenia, Germany and Norway gained entry through subsequent tournaments.

The women’s tournament features eight teams, with five berths coming via IIHF rankings (U.S., Canada, Finland, OAR and Sweden) and one to host South Korea, with Switzerland and Japan winning qualification tournaments.

With the season on the brink, Carr made four throws that no quarterback past or present could have placed any better, or made any more confidently. I find that extraordinary. With the kind of pressure Carr was facing, he made throws that were textbook, and if any one of them failed, there’s a good chance the Raiders would be 2-5 and playing for 2018 this morning. The throws that saved Oakland’s season, with videos here:

First throw, second-and-20, Oakland 20, 1:47 left. With cornerback Terrance Mitchell singled against Amari Cooper in the left slot, Cooper ran a skinny post, trying to bisect two deep safeties. About 10 yards into his route he deked left, and Mitchell bit; that was enough for Carr to think he had the space to parachute a deep Kyle Juszczyk Youth jersey throw. The ball traveled 44 yards in the air, perfectly thrown and timed, and got to Cooper a second before the safeties converged for the tackle. The level of difficulty on that throw is off the charts because of the danger involved, said the last Raiders quarterback to win the MVP, Rich Gannon. I reached out to Gannon on Saturday to dissect the final drive. Such a tough throw to make. Gain of 39.
