Month: January 2018

The Redskins have had a mediocre-but-not-terrible record over the past two seasons.

They’ve had a number of impressive wins, and they employ a number of impressive players. There have been seasons when the Redskins were obviously embarrassing; 2017 wasn’t one of them. And yet longtime fans continue to express a perhaps uncommon level of dissatisfaction with the franchise and a perhaps uncommon level of apathy.

Youth Isaiah Crowell Jersey Hope my grandfather isn’t rolling over in his grave, but I can’t take anymore Dan Snyder football in my life, he wrote. Goodbye, Redskins.

So, bearing in mind the first paragraph above, this left me curious. What follows is our conversation. It has been lightly edited for clarity.

Agholor’s resurgence is due almost entirely to Womens Jaye Howard Jersey his move to the slot. Agholor simply does not have the physicality to hold up on the edge in the NFL. His first two seasons, press coverage could basically take him out of the game. Now he sees far more free releases off the line of scrimmage and his natural quickness and after-the-catch ability can take over. He’s averaging 1.9 yards per route from the slot this year and running 85.7 percent of his routes from there after he was dead last in the NFL averaging 0.7 yards per route last year.

One day, maybe my youngest, who is in second grade, is going to open up a history book and he’ll read about Colin, Phil Sanchez, Colin Kaepernick’s high school guidance counselor, told Kent Babb this summer. And it won’t have anything to do with throwing a touchdown.

The notion of Kaepernick as an American historical figure was cemented this weekend. Among NFL players, the preferred method of protest 锟斤拷 taking a knee 锟斤拷 and the impetus to use the national anthem as a platform for expression traces back to Kaepernick. It was a momentous weekend, and it was shaped primarily by someone who wasn’t there. NFL teams may not have signed him to play quarterback this season, but they could not keep Kaepernick off the field.

Womens Jabari Parker Jersey Practices are held from Tuesday through Thursday, and clubs engage with players for formal interviews on Tuesday night. Informal interviews begin on Monday. On Tuesday morning, each player goes through a weigh-in in front of scouts and coaches where height, weight and other measurements are recorded and distributed to teams. Players also engage in a community service project each year, and go through a financial planning seminar.

Schroder scores 20 points, Hawks beat Jazz 104-90

Elite Womens LaDainian Tomlinson Jersey The Atlanta Hawks are starting to see some results from their improved play.
Youth Matt Wieters Authentic Grey Majestic Jersey: MLB Washington Nationals #32 Road Cool Base
Dennis Schroder scored 20 points , Taurean Prince broke out of a slump with 17 and Kent Bazemore did a stellar job defensively, leading the Hawks past the Utah Jazz 104-90 on Monday night.

Despite the Jaguars’ inexperience in the playoffs, Belichick marveled at how organized and mature they looked against the Steelers.

Very impressive, Belichick said of the Jaguars win. They did a great job. They do a lot of things well, play good defense, can rush the passer, can stop the run, turn the ball over, can run the ball, have a lot of explosive players in the passing game, they’re good in the kicking game, they’re very aggressive in the kicking game. They’re well coached.

Henry, who was signed by the Darius Slay Jersey Grizzlies on Jan. 13, was 3 of 5 from the field in the fourth, including converting two of his three 3-point attempts. That and 10 fourth-quarter points from Evans, who finished with 18 points and eight assists, helped Memphis come back from 10 down with 9:45 left.
Authentic Eric Dickerson Jersey
Consecutive 3-pointers by Henry started the Grizzlies in the right direction. Eventually, Memphis used a 13-2 burst to take their first lead of the night.

Now: Belichick has won five Super Bowls as New England’s head coach, and the Patriots are seeking an eighth Super Bowl appearance under him and 10th overall.

Then: The Jaguars were an upstart franchise that surprised in the playoffs with victories against Buffalo and Denver, teams led by Hall of Fame quarterbacks Jim Kelly and John Elway, before traveling to New England for the AFC championship.

Falcons hire Greg Knapp as new quarterbacks coach, SN source says

Matt Ryan has a new tutor.

The well-traveled Knapp is returning to the franchise where he was offensive coordinator from 2004 to 2006 when Michael Vick was at quarterback. Besides holding that position with the Falcons, Knapp has previously served as OC in San Francisco (2001 to 2003), Oakland (2007-2008, 2012) and Seattle (2009).

Atlanta (11-7) was eliminated in the second round of the playoffs last weekend by Philadelphia.

Of course, AirbnbWatch was created by the American Hotel & Lodging Association, whose members would much rather you stay in one of their hotels. But on Super Bowl weekend, both routes are going to cost you plenty, especially now that the hometown Vikings are out of the picture.

Keenum, a backup behind Sam Bradford when the season started, has enjoyed a breakout season leading the Vikings to an NFC North title. It looked as if the Vikings were going to blow their 17-0 halftime lead Sunday against the Saints, but Keenum threw a touchdown as time expired to win.

While both teams have endured injuries, they have enough talent to reach the Super Bowl. But the Vikings are more well-rounded, and the football gods appear to be on their side. Keenum has strong odds of winning this week, and he might not even need another miracle.

Speaking of wild finishes, the Jaguars treated fans to an interesting start to their game last week, jumping out to a quick 21-0 lead over the Steelers. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey already has promised a Super Bowl victory, raising the eyebrows of Patriots players.

The Patriots have a 10-1 record all-time when facing the Jaguars (including the playoffs), their lone loss in 1999 at Jacksonville in the AFC wild-card round.

A couple of years ago Ziggy Ansah appeared to be destined for greatness.

In 2015, his third year in the league, Ansah had a breakout season with 14.5 sacks, and the evolution of his game had him looking like a potential perennial All-Pro. That year he showed that he could be the kind of game-plan wrecker that opposing offensive coordinators would have to account for, and even then they still might not have been able to neutralize him.
Men's Replica Majestic Joe Morgan Red Alternate Jersey - #8 MLB Cincinnati Reds Cool Base
Mens Breshad Perriman Jersey I predicted Ansah would make a huge leap that season. By the end of that season, even with him putting up those big sack numbers, I actually thought Ansah still had plenty of room to grow, which was kind of scary. The fact that he was so athletic while also being quite powerful at 6’5 and 275 pounds was already damn near unfair.

Mens Josh Jones Jersey The Fritz Pollard Alliance, which promotes diversity in NFL coaching, front office and scouting jobs and whose chairman, John Wooten, initially said he believed the Raiders complied with the Rooney Rule, disagreed with the NFL’s findings in a strongly worded statement.

After entertaining interest from several Power 5 schools and NFL clubs — including the Oakland Raiders — Tee Martin will stay with the Trojans as USC’s offensive coordinator.

We believe the facts overwhelmingly point in the other direction, the release read. In his enthusiasm to hire Jon Gruden, Raiders’ owner Mark Davis failed to fulfill his obligation under the Rule and should step forward and acknowledge he violated the Rule.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but Sunday was a different story. Foles completed four of six passes thrown at least 20 yards downfield, for 172 yards and two touchdowns. That’s a 149.2 passer rating, nearly double what the Vikings allowed during the regular Authentic Kevin White Jersey season.

One name to watch is another guy who interviewed for the job: Rams offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur. LaFleur left the Falcons as quarterbacks coach to join McVay in L.A. last year, and the Rams offense took off. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora has reported multiple times on the Pick Six Podcast — subscribe here on iTunes for all the latest scoops and a dollop of sarcasm from our potentially award-winning crew — that McVay would likely let LaFleur leave for a lateral job if he was to get play-calling duties. Presumably, Vrabel won’t be calling the plays in Tennessee.

The Kansas City Chiefs are just 1-10 straight up and against the spread over their last 11 postseason games.

The Chiefs hope to end their stretch of playoff futility with a run to the Super Bowl this season, starting with a win at home over the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.

Larry Robinson Youth Jersey Kansas City is an 8-point home favorite in this Wild Card matchup at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. In their last seven games as a betting favorite in the playoffs, the Chiefs are 1-6 ATS.

The term roller coaster season Alec Ogletree Jersey is thrown around a lot in sports, but no term better defines Kansas City in 2017. The Chiefs opened the year with a 5-0 SU and ATS run and followed that up with a 1-6 SU and ATS slump before eventually locking up the AFC West with a 4-0 SU and ATS run to end the season.

Kansas City’s offense averaged a healthy 28.6 points per game over the team’s last five regular season contests and appears to be in good form heading into this Wild Card game.

KeiVarae Russell Youth Jersey With two top-four picks, we know the Cleveland Browns have the most 2018 NFL draft capital.

Now, how will it shake out for playoff teams? Fans of more than 20 franchises are looking ahead to free agency in March and the draft in late April. As the postseason continues, we’ll update this page as teams drop out of the hunt for the Lombardi Trophy and into the confirmed 2018 NFL draft order. The top 30 picks are below, with one coin flip pending between the Raiders and 49ers.

Round 1 of the draft begins on ESPN and WatchESPN at 8 p.m. ET on April 26 and takes place in Arlington, Texas.

The Browns will want a quarterback. The question for Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold might now be: Do they want the Browns? Both underclassmen have declared for the draft.

The Giants locked up the second overall pick despite beating the Redskins in their season finale thanks to the Colts, who beat the Texans in their final game.

Though they would have been much better off with the No. 2 slot, the Colts will be in the enviable position of having the best draft pick among teams that don’t need a quarterback. That means they might be able to return a haul if they decide to trade down.

The Eagles emerged as clear Super Bowl contenders with Carson Wentz under center going 11-2 SU and 10-3 ATS through their first 13 games.

But when Wentz tore his ACL against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14, the air of invincibility around this team quickly diminished.

Nick Foles is a serviceable backup but isn’t viewed as the type of player who can win quarterback duels and carry a team deep into the postseason. Philadelphia is 0-3 ATS over its last three games since Foles took over as starter.

Game Dennis Smith Jersey NFL locker rooms are cesspools of machismo and insecurity, and every successful team has endless squabbles and riffs and jealousies and all the other petty stuff you find in any large group of people forced to spend a lot of time together. You just don’t usually hear about it with the Patriots because they’re draconian with their media policy, and if anyone gets to be too big a problem they ship him out of town.

Continuing the discussion on ratings and being proactive in finding answers won’t solve the league’s problems.

wings_1033Then Newton hit Christian McCaffrey for a 56-yard touchdown in under a minute, giving the Panthers some life. The Saints had a fourth down late at the two-minute warning, and they went for it. They didn’t get it, with a Carolina player picking it off instead of simply hitting the ball away, so the Panthers lost a good chunk of yardage when they took over with no timeouts remaining.

Carolina marched all the way downfield, into the red zone, but an intentional grounding call and a sack had the team well out of range, and the Saints held on to win.

On Saturday, the Tennessee Titans just edged out the Kansas City Chiefs, while the Atlanta Falcons handled the Los Angeles Rams. The Titans will play the New England Patriots and the Falcons will play the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional Round.

Again, no one is claiming that fights with the White House’s social media wing and players kneeling during the anthem are even close to the only reasons for the professional football model being shaken up a bit. But the fact is, that model has been shaken up a bit, and the league doesn’t sit on its hands waiting for situations like this to steady themselves.

But as Jones, and others see it, it certainly wouldn’t hurt.

They’ve been looking for their franchise quarterback since the end of the Colin Kaepernick era in San Francisco. After trading a second-round pick for a quarterback who went 5-0 with 1,560 yards, seven touchdowns, and five interceptions, it makes sense that he’s going to receive a nice payday.

And they have to. After Kaepernick’s departure, the 49ers let Brian Hoyer and C.J. Beathard take over the reins, and it was genuinely ugly. They were nearing Browns levels of bad. In their 31 games before his starts, the 49ers went 4-27.

“He’s as confident as he appears to be, but he’s never comfortable,” Hinch said. “What I mean by that is, the drive and the right amount of awareness of what he has to do to be successful never wavers. Most of us would probably bask in the glory of having his bat-to-ball skills or his success rate. This guy is as hungry as he is respectful of what it takes.”

The Astros followed their leader through one more round, finishing a trifecta of knocking off the teams with the biggest payrolls in ascending order: the Red Sox, Yankees and Dodgers, icing on the cake for an underdog like Altuve.

One thing to be wary of: The clock on the 20-minute periods counts up instead of down, which can take some getting used to. Maybe the biggest change comes in the form of the shootout.

If the tie is still unbroken after those three rounds, it becomes a sudden victory situation, in which a team can send out any player to shoot any number of times.
