The Giants (3-13), who ended the season with an 18-10 win over the Redskins, will pick second overall while the Colts (4-12) have the third pick. The Broncos (5-11), Osweiler’s current team, will select fifth.
It’s the Coliseum, he said. This place is cavernous. It’ll swallow up 65,000, 70,000 people.
The Rams announced a crowd of 74,300 fans in the stadium that seats nearly 94,000 people. Kroenke, a Missouri native who ended the team’s 21-year stay in St. Louis by moving the team back to Los Angeles in 2016, said L.A. fans will come around when the team moves into its new Inglewood stadium in 2020.
Kroenke used St. Louis, which is suing Kroenke and the NFL to recoup money spent in its failed attempt to keep the team, as an example to prove his point. He said the team won over fans in St. Louis in 1999 during the run to a Super Bowl title and the same can happen in Los Angeles.
Absolutely, he said. I believe that strong. We’ve won them before, so let’s go do that again. How soon? I don’t know.
Kroenke said the excitement in Los Angeles can be similar to what the Vikings have experienced since moving into U.S. Bank Stadium in 2016.
Have you been up there? Kroenke said of the Vikings’ new venue, which will be the site of Super Bowl LII. That is a true home-field advantage because it’s so loud, it’s packed, it’s new.
Pink solidifies the talent that will be performing at Super Bowl LII. The NFL announced in October that Justin Timberlake would be performing at halftime of the game.
If he even needed them. Butler has actually blitzed less frequently—this is Blitzburgh no more—relying on interior pressure from Heyward and Tuitt, along with this season’s first-round selection, outside linebacker T.J. Watt. Fewer blitzes mean that “Coach Butts,” as his players affectionately call him, can drop more defenders into coverage—and that’s a blueprint for beating Brady.
We can’t talk about a Patriots game without the elephant in the room: the Brady-Belichick feud. It’s hilarious, but we think they can probably hold it together for a couple of more years until no amount of kale and electrolytes will save Tom Brady from Father Time’s ravages.
The Steelers were first to reach out to the free agent, and the interest was mutual. Haden had connected with Tomlin at the 2010 NFL combine, and his college teammates from Florida (tackle Marcus Gilbert and center Maurkice Pouncey) raved about Pittsburgh’s locker room. Haden says he turned down higher offers from three teams to sign a three-year, $27 million contract with only $5.8 million guaranteed at signing.
