In the AFC, only two teams have better odds than Texans of making the Super Bowl

Posted on by

The New England Patriots went 13-3 last season. The Pittsburgh Steelers did too. The Houston Texans, meanwhile, limped to a 4-12 record, which tied them for last place in the AFC South and gave them more wins than exactly two other teams in the NFL: the three-win Giants and the winless Browns. But unlike the Giants and Browns, who aren’t expected to magically turn things around in 2018, expectations are markedly different for the Texans, partly because of Deshaun Watson, whom they traded up to draft in 2017 and quickly emerged as one of the most exciting young quarterbacks in the game right up until the moment he tore his ACL in November.

But in seven games, Watson completed 61.8 percent of his throws with 19 touchdowns, 8 interceptions and a passer rating of 103.0. In Mark Melancon Jersey terms of value per play, Watson ranked seventh among all quarterbacks, according to Football Outsiders, just ahead of Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan.

It’s also worth pointing out that Houston made back-to-back playoff appearances in 2015 and 2016 with these quarterbacks starting games: Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, T.J. Yates, Brandon Weeden, Tom Savage and Brock Osweiler.

The Panthers are in a very different situation, of course. The NFL is currently investigating team owner Jerry Richardson for sexual harassment and workplace misconduct. Richardson announced in December that he was selling the team, and the current asking price (if you care to get involved in the bidding) sits in the neighborhood of $2.5 billion. The New York Times reported last month that the ownership search was in its home stretch and that two favorites had emerged: Ben Navarro, owner of the investment firm Sherman Financial Group, and Alan Kestenbaum, the chief executive of Bedrock Industries.

Limited Womens Zaza Pachulia Jersey This is probably not a storyline the Panthers — or the league — would like to see stretch into the summer months.

Todd Bowles didn’t know Christian Hackenberg was changing throwing motion

Posted on by

Elite Matt Schaub Jersey Yes, Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg has changed his throwing motion. No, his head coach didn’t know it was happening.
Nike NFL Vernon Butler Black Jersey Women's Game: #92 Carolina Panthers Fashion
He hasn’t talked to me about it, coach Todd Bowles said Saturday, via the New York Daily News. He just worked on it. I’ve learned about it after that fact.

There were similar (if not identical) rules violations before 2006, when high school players could skip college and go directly to the NBA. The rules violations today are not limited to one-and-done players but occur among all players. And there will be similar rules violations in the future.

Blaming one-and-done for college basketball’s problems, as if it is some sort of contagion, simply isn’t fair, and it is not remotely true. The commission is not endorsing the baseball rule, which means players will still be able to leave after only one year and players can still reclassify to enter college earlier, as Marvin Bagley III and Silvio De Sousa did this year, among others.

We’ve been in discussions with his agents and they’re well aware we want to get something done, Snead said. We do think he’s a perfect fit for us. We want to make sure that he’s around, and around for a long time. We also have some other contracts we need to deal with over the next month, two months.
Elite Larry Bird Jersey
Defensive tackle Aaron Donald is the most pressing of those other contract issues and Snead said that the team does have a timetable in mind for ending his multi-year push for a new deal. Snead didn’t share the details of that timetable during his appearance, but finally getting it out of the way would make it easier to start planning for how to tackle the other ones currently on the table.

The Commission on College Basketball addresses important issues related to the NBA draft, enforcement and grassroots basketball. The problem is, it offers little in the way of clear-cut answers.

Instead of addressing the money in the game and the issue of amateurism, the commission simply accepted the flawed argument upon which this entire multibillion-dollar industry is based. It blindly accepted the NCAA rhetoric that athletes already get enough. The commission accepted the fallacy that college basketball’s problems are not based upon its flawed J.J. Jansen Youth jersey rules but are caused by greedy third parties — parents, summer basketball personnel and capitalist apparel companies.

Packers waive incumbent punter after drafting one

Posted on by

When a move is #asexpected, it鈥檚 best to make it quickly.
Youth Boston Bruins #73 Charlie McAvoy Reebok Black Third Premier NHL Jersey
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Packers have waived punter Justin Vogel.

Leading up to the draft, the first-year agent talks to espnW about why this path is a way for her to honor her father’s legacy and how she goes about her business. Here is her story, in her words:

I will say what’s helpful with that name comes a lot of experience and perspective because of my dad’s career, being brought up, and being so close to him. I will say I’ve had a few clients, not just one, who went home or talked to their parent after our initial meeting. He shared my name, and the parents were like, Oh wow, yeah, that’s amazing. They’re so young that they don’t really care, or unless they’re just geeked out on the NFL history; that’s really not something that they know much about. It’s more the parents that bring it up or acknowledge it.

Davenport, 21, made 185 tackles, 37.5 tackles for loss and 21.5 sacks in his four-year career at UTSA.

Marner, a native of Markham, Ontario, has been praised to the stratosphere, while Matthews, a native of a U.S. desert Womens Zac Dalpe Jersey state, has been widely criticized for, among other things, hiding in the trainer’s room instead of meeting the media. This dynamic between the Canadian and American was, perhaps, the most predictable thing in the history of things, but we didn’t expect it to manifest in Year 2.

An immediate resurfacing of the clarion calls for William Nylander to be traded for defensive help.

The realization that Frederik Andersen, who had an underwhelming Game 7 but whose effort was perhaps the sole reason there was a Game 7, may not be the player to provide a solution in goal.
Limited Kids Jason Taylor Jersey
And in the chef’s kiss of postseason postmortems, an incredible statement from Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet about Matthews and coach Mike Babcock: Last year, and going into this year, Matthews was the guy, and toward the end, Babcock lost Matthews. I don’t know what happened, but he lost him, and there was no trust anymore.

Chiefs bring back Stefan Charles

Posted on by

The Chiefs waived defensive tackle Stefan Charles earlier this week, but he won’t have to find a new place to hang his hat.

The team announced on Thursday that they have re-signed Charles while also making it official that defensive end Rakeem Nunez-Roches has been waived.

Charles initially signed with the Chiefs in January to end an absence from the league that started when he was cut by the Jaguars last September. Charles last played in the regular season with the Lions in 2016 and made 12 tackles in 12 games. He spent the previous three seasons with the Bills and had 48 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles in 37 appearances.

The Detroit Lions didn’t know that coach Matt Patricia had been indicted for aggravated sexual assault in 1996. So here’s the question: Should they have?

On one hand, it’s understandable to assume that Patricia wouldn’t have made it as far as he did in coaching without something like this coming out. Some have called it a skeleton in the closet; the reality is that it was an unburied bag of bones hiding in plain sight.

Deadspin.com demonstrates just how easy it would have been to find the information, if the Lions had searched for it. A simple Nexis search uncovered it. A league source with access to the service tells PFT that, indeed, the Patricia indictment “comes up right away.”

Apparently, someone else uncovered it, too. The original report from the Detroit News indicates that a private investigation firm requested the court files for Patricia’s case in January. It’s not clear whether the Lions, the NFL, or some other team requested the information.

We have spoken to Coach Patricia about this at length as well as the attorney who represented him at the time. Based upon everything we have learned, we believe and have accepted Coach Patricia’s explanation and we will continue to support him. We will continue to work with our players and the NFL to further awareness of and protections for those individuals who are the victims of sexual assault or violence.”orioles_056

[Mueller raised possibility of presidential subpoena in meeting with Trump’s legal team]

Posted on by

In an interview with The Post, former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani 鈥?now serving as Trump’s lead personal attorney dealing with the special counsel 鈥?said the president did not force Cobb to leave.
Nike Nolan Cromwell Navy Blue Jersey: #21 NFL Name & Number Logo Los Angeles Rams Long Sleeve T-Shirt
Authentic Kids T.Y. Hilton Jersey It was just time for him to go, but he’s still going to be available to us, Giuliani said.

Some people have talked about a possible 12-hour interview, he said, adding: That’s not going to happen 鈥?I’ll tell you that. It’d be, max, two to three hours around a narrow set of questions.

Womens Daryl Williams Jersey Flood appears willing to take a more adversarial approach to the special counsel than Cobb, who advised Trump that cooperating with the probe would help bring it to a rapid conclusion.

For his part, Flood feels strongly that this whole investigation is essentially an attempt to undermine an election, said a person familiar with his views who requested anonymity to describe private conversations. He doesn’t like the idea of an independent counsel.

It is, however, surprising to see the Giants passed up on USC product Sam Darnold in favor of a running back.

More than the decision to select a player at this position No. 2 overall, the Giants now have a major financial commitment on their hands. In fact, Barkley is slated to earn the second-most guaranteed money for a running back in NFL history, behind only Adrian Peterson.

In one way, the rookie wage scale makes perfect sense. Created during the 2011 Collecetive Bargining Agreement, the idea was to value players exactly where they were selected in the draft. On the other hand, it makes very little sense in situations like this.

A source told Mike Jake Ryan Womens Jersey Florio of Pro Football Talk that the Patriots expect both Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady to be back with the team in 2018. While speculation has been that the star players have stayed away from voluntary workouts because they are unhappy with their contract situations as well as Belichick not allowing them the freedom to train the way they want, Florio notes that the Butler decision could still be a factor.

NFL Network simulcasts the TNF package and will also air seven games that will be exclusive to the channel.

Posted on by

Peter Budaj Authentic Jersey
As a result of Fox taking over the Thursday Night Football package from CBS and NBC, Comcast will move NFL Network from its Digital Starter Package, its most widely distributed tier to other less viewed packages.
Women's Mirza Teletovic Swingman Green Nike Jersey: NBA Milwaukee Bucks #35 Icon Edition
So for eleven games, Thursday Night Football will be aired on three outlets in addition to an online partner which will be announced later. For NFL Network, it’s a slight setback, but it’s back to the Chase Daniel Authentic Jersey beginning with Comcast.

Then there’s the fact that Patricia’s arrival means a bit of a scheme change defensively, as well, with more three-man fronts and two-gapping techniques expected.

So if there was anything revealing in what Quinn had to say Thursday, other than a possible admission the Lions aren’t seriously considering taking a running back in the first round, it might’ve been in the way he talked about balancing the team’s short- and long-term needs each offseason.

Jay Bruce Authentic Jersey This is hardly revelatory stuff, the idea that a GM looks at both his current roster and future salary-cap outlays as he tries to marry plans for free agency and the draft every winter. But when Quinn mentions the difficulty in finding playmakers in free agency at premium positions 鈥?generally viewed as quarterback, offensive tackle, edge rusher, cornerback and receiver 鈥?it does count for something.

I think, price-wise, it’s a much better way to do it, to do it in the draft, Quinn said. Because the premium positions in free agency, as you guys know, the prices are getting way up there. So you really have to make conscious decisions of where you’re gonna make investments in terms of free agency and then kind of fill in the gaps in the draft and hopefully take the best player on the board.

Sources: Preferring one-year deal, Dez Bryant turns down Ravens’ offer

Posted on by

Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant turned down a multiyear offer from the Baltimore Ravens, ESPN has confirmed.
(Los Angeles Rams John Sullivan Game Nike Men's Navy Blue Jersey) NFL Home #65
Bryant, who turns 30 in November, wants a one-year deal and a chance to prove himself, in hopes of getting a bigger long-term deal in 2019, sources said.

The news was first reported by The Doomsday Podcast’s Ed Werder.

The Phillies closed within a run in the bottom half on Cesar Hernandez’s two-out single to left.

It will be out there until he walks back in here, Jones said. He’s a brother of ours, and we care about him. He’s still part of this team, and we want to show our support.

Farquhar was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday.

The entire trip did give Patrick some ideas for postracing life.

The Patriots drafted two players from the University of Georgia 鈥?offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn at No. 23聽and running back Sony Michel at No. 31, both of whom could help fill significant holes on the offensive roster. The Patriots lost left tackle Nate Solder to the New York Giants in free agency, while versatile running back Dion Lewis signed with the Tennessee Titans.

But those selections聽shouldn’t necessarily be confused with the team drafting for need in the first round, said Nick Caserio, the Patriots’ director of player personnel.

You draft good football players, Caserio said. We need good players, wherever they come from, whatever positions they play.

As owners of a pair of picks in Friday’s second round, the Patriots had the draft pick capital to potentially move up during Thursday’s first round. With Brady turning 41 in August, it was fair to wonder if New England聽could have been in the market for a first-round quarterback.

That speculation only increased in Authentic Chris McCullough Jersey Arlington this week when former Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson revealed he met with the Patriots and head coach Bill Belichick multiple times, including聽a workout on campus and a visit to Gillette Stadium.
Game Womens A.J. Klein Jersey
New England bypassed Jackson twice, however, before he landed with the Baltimore Ravens as聽the No. 32 overall selection.

Now, drafting Brady’s聽potential successor聽will have to wait at least another day.

NFL: No evidence Derrius Guice was asked invasive questions at combine

Posted on by

An NFL investigation has found no evidence that 2018 draft prospect Derrius Guice was asked invasive questions at the NFL Scouting Combine, the league announced on the eve of the draft.

Guice, a potential first-round pick, appeard on SiriusXM Radio on March 7, shortly after the combined ended, and described his experience.

“It was pretty crazy. Some people are really trying to get in your head and test your reaction. … I go in one room, and a team will ask me, ‘Do I like men?’ just to see my reaction. I go in another room, they’ll try to bring up one of my family members or something and tell me, ‘Hey, I heard your mom sells herself. How do you feel about that?'”

In an effort to uncover whether and which team or teams asked the questions, the league spent weeks combing through reviews and reports from every team that interviewed Guice, as well as interviews with the player, his agent and others, ESPN reported, citing an unidentified source.

The NFL found no conclusive evidence of the questions. According to ESPN’s source, at least one team said Guice admitted he “made up” that he was asked the questions.

It is thought the sale could not only see more NFL games played at Wembley, but also open the door to a permanent franchise based in London. But Khan emphasized Thursday that his bid does not affect the franchise’s commitment to Jacksonville.

“Today’s news changes none of what we envision for the long-term promise for the Jaguars here in Jax, and it changes nothing as to the goals we have for your downtown,” he said in a statement. “If anything, today’s news is the embodiment of the ethos we adopted several years ago of being proud, bold and committed.”

The Jaguars have played a “home” game at Wembley each of the past five seasons and will face the Super Bowl champion Eagles there Oct. 28.

Mark Waller, the NFL executive vice president of events and international, called the move a “powerful sign” of a commitment to growing football in the UK.

“We are very happy for Shad Khan and the Jacksonville Jaguars,” he said in a statement. “The potential purchase of Wembley Stadium is a further powerful sign of their commitment to the UK and their vision to help us grow the sport.steelers_060

Ernie Accorsi was unprepared.

Posted on by

Brayden McNabb Elite Jersey
Here he was, in Mobile, Ala., on one of those mid-December nights when the dampness and the cold infiltrates deep into the bones. Despite his extensive experience on the road, Accorsi, somehow, was underdressed.
Nike Men's Delano Hill Elite Navy Blue Home Jersey - Seattle Seahawks NFL #42 Vapor Untouchable
I’m sitting in the stands, I’m thinking, ‘How many scouts are at this dopey bowl game and they wouldn’t put me in the press box,’鈥?Accorsi recalled in an interview with The Post.

Fellow Heat lifers Alonzo Mourning and Juwan Howard each came over to him as he worked on his knees and stopped for a conversation. Wade will be joining them as Heat emeriti soon enough. Always welcome around the team, always a part of the family … once their playing careers were over.

Ethan Westbrooks Jersey I asked him why he was wrapping his own knees in ice. The Heat have plenty of trainers for tasks like that. Wade laughed and said, I like doing this myself.

After all, how many more times would he wrap those knees in ice after a practice? No, if these are indeed the last days Authentic Kwon Alexander Jersey of his Basketball Hall of Fame career, Wade is determined to do everything exactly the way it should be done.

Which is how he approached Monday’s game against the Sixers. The Heat had brought him back for games just like this: down in a playoff series, needing a win at all costs and desperate for the type of calming, veteran leadership the three-time NBA champion can provide.

Think about the 2016 draft, during which a video of Laremy Tunsil smoking marijuana from a gas-mask bong happened just as the process was getting started, forcing teams at the top to scramble on the fly in an effort to decide whether to draft him or to not draft him. This time around, teams had from the moment their decision-makers woke up this morning until the teams are on the clock to come up with a plan for proceeding.

It allows the teams to conduct more research, to speak directly to Allen about the tweets, to spend time trying to figure out who leaked the information and why, and ultimately to decide whether to take him off the draft board or to lower his position on it.

Before those decisions are made, owners surely will be involved. While many (if not most . . . if not all) owners find a way to get involved without appearing to be involved, this gives them a much more clear opening to ask questions, drop hints, and/or issue mandates. As a practical matter, it provides the owner with cover for pushing the needle toward a player the owner wants, if the owner previously was inclined to not push for Josh Allen.

Regardless, there’s now much more time for these activities to occur. So if someone did this on purpose, they should have waited until much closer to the outset of the draft in order to create maximum chaos.

NFL Draft 2018: LSU RB Derrius Guice falls to Redskins at No. 59 due to unreported off-field incidents, report says

Posted on by

Derrius Guice’s fall in the NFL Draft has been the story of the broadcast for each of the first two rounds, but he finally found a home with the Redskins at pick No. 59.
Women's Lance Parrish Replica White Majestic Jersey: MLB Detroit Tigers #13 Home Cool Base
NFL Media gave a reason as to why he slipped during the broadcast.

Daeshon Hall Game Jersey Guice apparently had a couple of off-field incidents that went unreported when he was at LSU. He was also described as high maintenance and immature.

Yes, I still bunt, Gregorius said.

Try to stay consistent, he added. I do have a lot of home runs, but it’s not like I’m going out there trying to hit them. I’m not the power guy.
Elite Kids Jacquizz Rodgers Jersey
Austin is awaiting word on his appeal of a suspension for charging the mound during an April 11 brawl with Boston. Still eligible to play until then, the rookie homered in the third to give New York a 5-2 lead and later doubled.

He should slide right into a starting spot on the inside of Vic Fangio’s defense in Chicago and they’ll hope for the same kind of production as he moves to the pro Chris Stewart Jersey level.

Maccagnan’s manner has been embraced by Jets ownership. But as well-liked and respected as he is, Thursday’s first round of the NFL draft represents a critical pressure point in Maccagnan’s tenure as Jets general manager, which is entering its fourth season.

Maccagnan cannot miss with whichever quarterback he selects with the third overall pick in this draft and survive to pick another one.

Not counting his 2015 fourth-round selection of Bryce Petty, Maccagnan already is 0-for-1 at drafting quarterbacks high 鈥?picking Christian Hackenberg in the second round of the 2016 draft, a choice that was not universally embraced inside the Jets’ building.

If Maccagnan’s next pick 鈥?whether it’s USC’s Sam Darnold, Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, UCLA’s Josh Rosen or whomever 鈥?doesn’t become the franchise quarterback the Jets are so starved to find, owners Woody and Chris Johnson will have no recourse but to fire him.

Hackenberg, as no Jets fan needs to be reminded, has not played a single snap in his two NFL seasons and, barring a miracle, he’ll soon be released from the organization having never played a single down.
