Browns’ Hue Jackson calls out Kenny Britt for dropped pass

Posted on by

Kenny Britt is a seasoned receiver, which is why Browns coach Hue Jackson is very unhappy he dropped a crucial pass in the fourth quarter of Cleveland’s 21-18 loss to the Steelers.

Rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer threw a perfect ball to Britt roughly 20 yards downfield on second-and-19, but Britt botched the catch. For Jackson, that mistake was far too costly.

“Obviously, Kenny dropped the ball in the middle of the field, and
Jonathan Lucroy Womens Jersey I know that is what we all are talking about,” Jackson said, via ESPN. “I have seen players do that before, and we all have. I have had some of the great ones in this league drop balls.

“He did some things very well, made a couple really good audibles. He’s making good reads. It’s just about getting comfortable and getting his rhythm.”

The team had been cautious with Newton throughout the offseason after he went under the knife in March to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder, limiting him to throw two passes in the preseason and listing him as questionable on the injury report. Still, he prevailed and finished 14 of 25 for 171 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in the Panthers’ 23-3 win over the 49ers.

However, Newton will need to get his accuracy under control before Week 2. He was off-target on a number of throws, including a wide-open toss to tight end Ed Dickson in the first half, and was 5-for-16 passing early in the game before going a perfect 3-for-3 to finish the first
Alex Bregman Youth Jersey half.

The Panthers are scheduled to host the Bills for their home opener Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.

Elliott took part in Tuesday’s meetings and walk-through at the Cowboys’ practice facility

Limited Jeff Teague Jersey Good question! The new stadium is actually making great use of the space that once held the dome. The land will be turned into The Home Depot Backyard, a 13-acre greenspace that’ll be used for game day parking, arts and culture events, entertainment, and community events starting in 2018.

Weirdly enough, the Chiefs actually started life in Dallas as an AFL team called the Texans. Life on the prairie is a bigger circle than anywhere else, I guess. The Bills don’t have any roots in Texas, but they do have an AFL lineage. And I’m sure Buffalo Bill Cody took his Wild West show to Texas a few times, thus perpetuating the Western mythology.

This would be one of the more competitive divisions in this landscape, except for the Bills. I think Kansas City is the most talented team here, but it’s probably close enough with the Cowboys that it might come down to the finer points of coaching, in which case Andy Reid would be forced to think about the clock, and, welp. However, don’t sleep on Houston’s defense to ruin things for either Dallas or the team that used to be in Dallas.

Elliott took part in Tuesday’s meetings and walk-through at the Cowboys’ practice facility, The Star, in Frisco, Texas, before heading to Paul Brown District Court, roughly 50 minutes away, in time for the hearing. He is expected to be at the Cowboys’ full-pads practice Wednesday.

On Aug. 11, the NFL announced a six-game suspension for Elliott because of a violation of the personal conduct policy, citing persuasive evidence that Elliott committed physical abuse against Tiffany Thompson, a former girlfriend, at least three times in July 2016.

Watt announced the drive has raised more than $12 million in donations.

Posted on by

McCoy’s workload is expected to increase this season after the Bills declined to match the New England Patriots’ restricted free-agent offer this offseason for Mike Gillislee, who served as McCoy’s backup last year. Buffalo also released running back Jonathan Williams on Sunday, leaving veteran Mike Tolbert as their main backup to McCoy.

“I’m a player,” McCoy said. “I like to play. I like to compete. And guys on other teams, I’m sure the Jets, they’ll tell you that, that I like to compete. I’m always up for a challenge. I am human. I think football, guys they get tired, they come out. Like I said before, that’s what building a whole roster is all about.”

On Thursday afternoon, Watt announced the drive has raised more than $12 million in donations. He passed the $13 million mark on Thursday night before hitting $15 million on Friday and passing $17 million on Saturday.

ESPN says the company launched on Wednesday, but only features three teams. According to their website, they have jerseys for the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions.

Fans can get a variety of players’ jerseys, which include Barry Sanders, Calvin Johnson, Eric Ebron, Ziggy Ansah, Golden Tate, Matthew Stafford, Jarrad Davis, Marvin Jones and Theo Riddick.

The Lions jerseys also come in the Honolulu Blue home jersey, white away and silver color rush. Plus, some players have the throwback Honolulu blue retired jersey like Sanders.t_rangers_016-115x115

Don’t be shocked if they’re soon charged with restarting him as their backup.

Posted on by

The British-born, Kitchener, Ont.-raised, heavyweight is still a polarizing figure among Canadian boxing fans, given his controversial decision to represent his birth nation as a professional after winning Olympic and Commonwealth gold under the Maple Leaf.

Regardless, Lewis was a force upon turning pro, and he quickly rose up the ranks to claim the WBC heavyweight title. During his first reign as WBC champion, Lewis successfully defended the title three times, including a knockout victory over Frank Bruno that was notable for being the first heavyweight title bout between two British fighters.

Paul Kariya Authentic Jersey It’s probably no coincidence that Boldin described the contributions of the three most prominent players in this effort so far, the players who have taken on the challenge of organizing like-minded players and growing their network.

Groups of NFL players visited Congress twice in the past year, last November and the following March. Boldin put the trips together, Jenkins was on both, and combined they were joined by Glover Quin, Josh McCown, Andrew Hawkins and Johnson Bademosi, plus former player Donte Stallworth.
Dezmen Southward Game Jersey
It will take a progressive team with a particular need, and the Seahawks best fit the profile. The rest is on Kaepernick accepting that there’s a good chance he isn’t perceived as anyone’s No. 1 anymore. Sure, it’s a demotion, but it’s also a favorable 鈥?and maybe only 鈥?road to redemption and resurrection.

Kaepernick didn’t seem to care that his actions and political statements would hurt his future earning power in the NFL. If he can accept taking lesser money, he shouldn’t see settling for second in Seattle as a lesser move, but rather a necessary one that can turn into a blessing.

The Seahawks’ job for several seasons was to stop Kaepernick. Don’t be shocked if they’re soon charged with restarting him as their backup.

Ravens cancel practice to tour Arlington National Cemetery, Pentagon

Posted on by

The Baltimore Ravens got a big surprise Monday when coach John Harbaugh canceled practice.

Authentic Kids Tyler Kroft Jersey The hit, while legal, drew scrutiny from Beckham’s teammates as well as offensive players from around the league. Other defensive players mostly defended the hit because defenders are not allowed to hit receivers high, so Boddy-Calhoun went low.

Beckham said after the game he was relieved to just have a sprained ankle, which a Tuesday MRI confirmed.

Game Kids Eli Apple Jersey I watched the Rams offense last season. It was awful football, Martz continued in the excerpt. There was nobody there on that staff that could teach him, develop him. You have a high-value guy like that and he went to the worst offensive place, the Rams.

Goff completed 55 percent of his passes for 1,089 yards as a rookie but had a less-than-stellar TD-to-INT ratio (5-7). Now, Martz said the Rams are just hiring a friend for Goff and not a coach that can give him the instruction he needs.

What is he, a couple of months older than Jared? he asked. They hired a buddy for Jared. The NFL has nothing to do with being the friend or the buddy of the quarterback. You’ve got to coach them and work them hard with respect. But buddy?

Giannis Antetokounmpo defends Kevin Durant’s decision to sign with Warriors

Giannis Antetokounmpo might have Bucks fans on edge with his latest comments defending Kevin Durant’s decision to go to the Golden State Warriors.

The Clippers sewed up Blake Griffin to a five-year max deal for $173 million. Doc Rivers does not rebuild.

Youth Andrew McCutchen Jersey Utah will get to keep Ingles throughout the rest of his prime years, as he is 29 years old, and given that his skill set revolves around deep-ball shooting, he’s set to age well.

Ingles staying in Utah is as good off the court as it is on.

Ingles has become a favorite in Salt Lake City, and even more so on a national scale after his exchange with the Warriors and Andre Iguodala, dissed the state of Utah during the teams’ playoff series.

The problem with Utah is that you’re just sitting there and your mind is, like, dead, because in L.A., you still got energy for the game, Iguodala told ESPN. Because you’re in L.A., you’re like, ‘Man, this is just the vibe in L.A.’ but in Utah, it can kind of lull you to sleep. And then you’ve slept too long or I’m bored out of my mind and now you got to try to pump yourself up for the game. You know you’re in the playoffs and you’re supposed to be pumped anyway, but the vibe is just like, ‘Man, let’s just get out of here.’

The Pelicans’ best option going into free agency was to overpay Jrue Holiday, for whom they had Bird rights. That’s just what New Orleans did, giving him five years and $126 million.

Michael Vick hired as studio analyst by Fox Sports

Posted on by

Instead of watching Michael Vick run around defenders and fit footballs into tight windows on Sundays, we’ll see him sitting at a desk.

According to USA Today, Fox Sports will announce Friday the hiring of Vick as a studio analyst for “Fox NFL Kickoff,” the show that leads into “Fox NFL Sunday.”

The Tiger-Cats are 0-8; every other team in the CFL has at least two wins. Jones had been brought on as assistant head coach Aug. 2.

“June and I have established a great relationship, and I feel comfortable and very confident with him handling the on-field product moving forward,” Austin said in a release. “This organization, its fans and partners deserve a championship-caliber team and we fully expect to work together to return us to that level.”

Jones, 64, last worked as a head coach with SMU from 2008-14 on the heels of a stint at Hawaii from 1999-2007. He also was interim head coach of the Chargers in 1998 and head coach of the Falcons from 1994-96.

Jones does have some prior experience in Canada; he was offensive coordinator of the Ottawa Rough Riders in 1986 and played for the Toronto Argonauts in 1982.

The Saints always sign at least one head-scratcher of a contract per year, and last year it was Fleener, who was the beneficiary of the Saints’ generous ways. Coming off a career-worst year of just 491 yards, Fleener was treated as if he was coming off a career-best year. He finished his first year with less yards and touchdowns than a 35-year-old Ben Watson had the prior year with the Saints. This looks to be another contract the Saints will regret.seahawks_042

LeBron James will not waive his no-trade clause this season, per report

Posted on by

Elite Youth Dominik Hasek Jersey
LeBron James is determined to see the remainder of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers through, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes. He will not waive his no-trade clause to pursue opportunities with other teams this year.

James is one of only three players in the NBA to hold a no-trade clause; the others are Carmelo Anthony and Dirk Nowitzki. He is expected to exercise his player option to test free agency next summer.

The Cavaliers have had an offseason uncharacteristically bad for a team that’s made three consecutive NBA Finals appearances.

Roberson is a solid role player for the Thunder. While Roberson is an elite defender, his offensive issues are certainly still there. During the 2016-2017 season, Roberson shot 25 percent from the three-point line and 43 percent from the free throw line. While those numbers are nothing to be excited about, it doesn’t matter as much now that the Thunder also have Paul George to go alongside Russell Westbrook.
Mens B.W. Webb Jersey
Having Roberson back also helps out new Thunder teammate George, who has typically been tasked with carrying the entire offensive and defensive load in Indiana. Now, George can play more off the ball on offense with Russell Westbrook running point. He can also roam more on defense with Roberson able to do more of the heavy lifting on defense. In theory, Roberson is the perfect type of role player for this team.

Must be nice to have both of your incumbent teams over a barrel. The Pelicans couldn’t afford to lose Holiday with DeMarcus Cousins in the final year of his contract, and Clippers owner Steve Ballmer didn’t pay $2 billion to execute a rebuild. That’s how two mid-20s players with spotty injury histories secured five-year guaranteed contracts for nine figures.

Dallas doesn’t have another legitimate option at the center position.

Posted on by

All we saw was Air Bud catch a ball in his mouth and get the final out, and apparently that was enough to earn MVP. We didn’t see him at bat, although thanks to the scoreboard, we can assume he didn’t help much there. All we’re left with is imagining what else he did at first base to earn that honor, and maybe that’s for the best. Part of me believes this ending was all a dream sequence in Air Bud’s head.

The franchise has a lot of corny, ridiculous things that deserve to be made fun of: villains who contribute to excruciatingly formulaic plots; the soundtrack, which can range from romantically cheesy to wait, this is totally a knockoff of John Fogerty’s ‘Centerfield’; the ridiculous sports scenes involving Air Bud, like his aforementioned batting practice, and this block from Spikes Back.

Limited Kids Greg Lloyd Jersey Once I attended a Knicks game at which the halftime show was people throwing Frisbee for dogs, who would jump really high to catch them. During one such throw, a dog slipped on a Frisbee that had been left on the floor and totally lost its footing. It ended up doing a full, accidental barrel roll in mid air, but STILL caught the Frisbee it had been thrown. It was the greatest sports highlight I ever saw in person, thus making whatever shitty Knicks game that was the greatest sporting event I ever saw in person. I also attended Game 2 of the 2000 World Series.

Dallas doesn’t have another legitimate option at the center position. The only other true bigs on the Mavs’ roster are Salah Mejri and Jeff Withey, neither of whom have enjoyed much success in extended NBA play.

What legendary big man was best equipped to dominate in today’s NBA?

Posted on by

As the NBA becomes an increasingly guard-driven league, traditional big men have become somewhat of an afterthought. But the son of one all-time great center believes his pops would dominate this generation’s pool of basketball talent.

You’ve got to understand the source. He played, I think … college maybe? He averaged, what, 2.2 points a game? For real? I doesn’t dignify an answer, but I’ll give you one, because you asked a question, I don’t think he could beat me if I was one-legged.
LaDainian Tomlinson Kids Jersey This drew more cheers and clapping from the crowd.

Look, we get it. A lot of people are sick of hearing about Ball and are tired of seeing his every word get amplified and broadcast into the world. Especially when there are so many more interesting voices that don’t get the platform they deserve, and even more so when Ball’s actions have been disgusting and misogynistic. However, the reality is that Ball has said a lot of stuff about a lot of very influential people, like Jordan, and they’re starting to respond because they can’t ignore it any longer.
Winston Guy Kids Jersey
In a perfect world, we might all be able to just brush it aside and stop it all from happening, but Jordan hasn’t said anything meaningful about Ball up to this point, and his response means something. Yes, this will result in Ball clapping back and getting his name in the headlines again, because that’s what he does — but eventually people run out of things to say, especially when their only go-to is claiming they’ll beat people in one-on-one games and never actually playing.
