Kahnle’s breakthrough was not only completely legitimate, it supported his skill set as one of the 15 most closer-worthy pitchers in baseball (and that could be understating it). Thanks in large part to a mechanical tweak — shortening the leg kick in his delivery — he was able to slash his walk rate by more than half, while boosting his average fastball velocity to a career-high 97.8 mph. And yet he might not even start the year as one of the first three relievers in saves on his own team.
But the Thunder chose cap flexibility and avoiding luxury-tax payments instead of keeping its core together. They traded James Harden to Houston for Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb and a pair of first-round picks. Houston, not Cleveland, is now the biggest threat to Golden State’s championship hopes, while Westbrook is the only pillar of OKC’s Big 4 remaining, though they have ostensibly successfully rebuilt around him.
The Warriors will face a similar predicament soon: Cough up the cash or sacrifice everything they’ve built to evade hefty luxury tax fees. They are already paying a bigger luxury tax bill than any team in the league, but that may change in the years to come, especially if the core as is fails to fend off the Rockets.
Remember: Thompson told The Vertical’s Shams Charania he felt Kind of disrespected that people keep using the term sacrifice to describe me and describe us. We all want to see each other do well. But I’m not sacrificing shit because my game isn’t changing.
Must they run their mouths like that? Ingraham said in the segment. Unfortunately, a lot of kids — and some adults — take these ignorant comments seriously. Look, there might be a cautionary lesson in LeBron for kids: This is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the NBA. And it’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid a hundred million dollars a year to bounce a ball. Oh, and LeBron and Kevin: You’re great players but no one voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So keep the political commentary to yourself or, as someone once said, shut up and dribble.
I actually laughed first when I saw the reports. Then I watched the videos and saw how it was put off. I had no idea who she is or what she do, but she won in that case because now I know who she is. For her to go up there and say what she said… First of al I would have had a little more respect for her if she wrote those words, she probably said t right off the teleprompter but that’s ok.
According to a report from ESPN, the decision would allow the franchise to “recoup some of the compensation” going to the Chiefs that will be traded away when they acquire quarterback Smith once the new league year begins in March.
There is one reason Cousins might not accept the tag and that is if there’s no sign he could get a long-term deal from the team where he’s potentially traded.
Cousins did say earlier this week (via NFL.com) he does “expect to be a free agent,” and he is projected as the top free-agent quarterback available. However, working around a franchise tag might limit Washington’s leverage.
Cousins, 29, enters his seventh NFL season in 2018. Throughout his career, he has thrown for 16,206 yards and 99 touchdowns with 55 interceptions.
Kramer, whom Vince Lombardi once called the best guard in football, had been regarded as the most overlooked player from the 1960s Packers teams that won five championships in seven years, including the first two Super Bowls. No player had been a finalist more than Kramer without receiving induction into the Hall.
Now 82 years old, Kramer was a three-time Pro Bowler and five-time All-Pro selection over an 11-year career for Lombardi’s Packers. He is perhaps best known for the key block that paved the way for Bart Starr’s game-winning quarterback sneak to beat the Cowboys in the 1967 NFL championship game, otherwise known as the Ice Bowl. Kramer was elected to the Packers Hall of Fame in 1975.
Kramer is the 25th Packers player inducted in Canton and 12th from Green Bay’s championship teams of the 1960s. He was named to the league’s 50th Anniversary team and was the only member of that group not already in the Hall of Fame.
Peyton Manning and Brett Favre put up gaudy statistics during their careers. But Brady is catching up fast, even though he was not asked to light it up for the Patriots early in his career. All seven of his 30-plus TD pass seasons have come after age 30.
Brady has climbed up to No. 3 on the all-time passing touchdowns list, tied with Brees with 488. He’s third all time in career passer rating with his 97.6. He’s also fourth in career passing yards with 66,159. But what’s most amazing: He has played in more than two full seasons worth of playoff games — an NFL record 36. He’s 27-9 in those games.
Surviving and thriving in football is physically demanding, especially in contrast to other sports. And for Brady to also maintain mental advantages is downright unfair. It comes back to his mindset, his best natural talent.
“I love this sport. I admire all the guys who’ve played before me and I realize how hard it is,” Brady said. “I grew up a fan of Joe Montana, Steve Young, Dan Marino, John Elway and Warren Moon and watched them all. I loved watching football highlights, watching guys’ techniques, dropbacks and throws.
“They paved the way for us quarterbacks today. We’re paving the way for quarterbacks of the future. I’m a hell of a lot older than most of the guys in the league now, so there’s a lot of guys who are probably looking at me like I used to look at them.”
Watch all three “Dilly Dilly!” commercials in order below. “Ye Old Pep Talk” is scheduled to air during the first quarter of Super Bowl 52; “The Bud Knight” will air during the second quarter.
Tom Brady did not need to lead the Patriots to victory last year in Super Bowl 51 to strengthen his position as the greatest NFL quarterback of all time.
“One for the thumb,” though, has a nice ring to it. Brady’s fifth title also stamped his status as the NFL’s best overall player.
Leave it to the Saints’ Drew Brees, another excellent, older quarterback, to remind us what Brady has done. Keep in mind Brees, no doubt an elite quarterback, has one ring with New Orleans. In comparison, Brady’s accomplishments seem all the more impressive.
As President Trump called for NFL owners to suspend or fire players who protested the national anthem, players and coaches answered defiantly Sunday morning, with most members of the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars either standing with their arms locked in solidarity or taking a knee on the field.
Ravens Coach John Harbaugh joined his players, locking arms, and Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, a Pakistani American billionaire and businessman, joined his players before the game’s kickoff at 9:30 a.m. in London’s Wembley Stadium. Ravens Hall of Famer Ray Lewis also took a knee during the anthem.
The Texans beat Arizona 31-21, but lost runing back D’Onta Foreman, who was carted off with a leg injury in the fourth quarter.
That decision went about as poor as possible, as Peterman threw five, count ’em, five first-half interceptions. Taylor entered in the second half, but it was took late for a reasonable attempt at a comeback. The Chargers won, 54-24.
“If Colin Kaepernick is NOT on a roster at the beginning of camp and the regular season, his effective banishment from the NFL will be a MAJOR topic of conversation about the NFL among sports columnists, broadcasters, pundits, pontificators, and opinion makers, and the public so long as he is not in the League and it will become the ONLY conversation every time a starting QB is injured, unable to play, and replaced by a “back up” who [is] lesser skilled than Kaepernick,” Edwards wrote, in part. “In consequence, the focus will not be on the games, not on the star athletes, and not on the marque matchups to the degree desired, strategically marketed, or normally expected.”
But should the two sides buck expectations and reach a mutually agreeable long-term deal, in which the salary cap ramification of Cousins’s contract can be spread over the life of a four- or five-year contract, the team can devote what remains under the cap to other pressing needs.
That should start with the defensive line.
The former Bears quarterback played a total of two series for Miami and went 3 for 6 for 24 yards.
Cutler joined the team on a one-year, $10 million deal after expected Dolphins starter Ryan Tannehill suffered a torn ACL. The former Bears quarterback retired this offseason and took a position at Fox as an analyst for the network’s football coverage, but ultimately passed on that gig when Gase offered him the quarterback job in Miami.
Whatever happens between now and the end of the season has absolutely nothing to do with whether QB Kirk Cousins remains in Washington. The Redskins have had plenty of time to know what they have in Cousins, and Cousins has had plenty of time to figure out what he thinks about the team. It comes down to financial considerations now. The negotiating history between both parties and the numbers involved for Cousins to be franchise-tagged again make it difficult to believe that he will be a Redskin next season.
Tua Tagovailoa is the rightful talk of Alabama’s fifth national title during the Nick Saban era. Just don’t forget about the all-time performance put on by defensive tackle Da’Ron Payne. The former top recruit set up camp in Georgia’s backfield for the duration of the game.
He was a force against the run, which is always the case, and more important for his draft stock, he got after quarterback Jake Fromm often.
Although Payne is a true junior with room to grow, he undoubtedly made the most of the intense playoff spotlight. The first round now seems likely for Payne, not a best-case scenario.
Jaguars-Broncos did not attract a ton of notice because that Divisional Round postseason classic was played on a Saturday. The football world’s eyes were on the NFL’s other newly minted franchise, the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers were taking on the Cowboys the next day, trying to prevent Dallas from winning an unprecedented fourth Super Bowl in five years.
“A football junkie,” was how Jeremy Pruitt remembered Ramsey. The head coach at the University of Tennessee coached defensive backs at Florida State when Ramsey came to Tallahassee. “He was a sponge; you couldn’t give him enough information.”
Which is to suggest he didn’t say much. No promises of a national title or a place on the All-America team, both of which he accomplished in three seasons. But over time, Ramsey grew bolder. He was good, and he knew it, so as he’d point out years later before the AFC championship: “Why not say it?”
At ACC media day one year, Ramsey carried a microphone and interviewed — taunted might be more accurate — other teams’ players. “How’s it feel to let us come back on y’all like that?” he asked a Louisville player, before mimicking a Boston College player’s accent, before reminding a Georgia Tech player of Florida State’s victory against the Yellow Jackets in the ACC championship game.
The lawsuit says the Patriots performed preseason exams of Hernandez and should have recognized signs of cognitive impairment. The NFL was “fully aware of the damage that could be inflicted from repetitive impact injuries and failed to disclose, treat or protect him from the danger of such damage,” the complaint states.
“There are a number of issues,” Lockhart said. “We just saw this last night. At first blush, there are several things that jump out.”
For a president whose administration is in chaos even according to members of his own party, keeping support from his base seems to be crucial. But continuing to attack Americans for expressing one of the privileges that comes with citizenship could continue to hurt him with demographics that have long been unsupportive of his politics.
Despite Trump continuing to suggest that the protests disrespect the flag, black Americans — a group that overwhelmingly voted against him in 2016 and continues to give him low approval markings — disagree.
The Sooners intentionally fouled Azubuike, a 41-percent free-throw shooter coming in, several times. He missed all five of his free throws in the final 3:37 to help the Sooners get back into the game.
“It was definitely frustrating because we didn’t really get a chance to run anything,” Graham said. “But I guess it was pretty smart on them doing that.”
The Texans went back to Tom Savage as their starter. He started the season opener but lasted only a half before O’Brien went to Watson. Things weren’t any better this time around, as Savage completed only 19 of 44 passes last Sunday and the Texans lost to the Indianapolis Colts. Their record dropped to 3-5, and they fell two games behind the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC South. Savage is to start again Sunday in Los Angeles against the Rams.
The Packers have played two full games since Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone. McCarthy, in reacting testily to a reporter’s question about Kaepernick following Rogers’s injury, spoke of the three years that he had invested in coaching Rodgers’s backup, Brett Hundley.
But Hundley has totaled only 332 passing yards in two games as the fill-in starter for Rodgers. The Packers have lost both games and, with their record at 4-4, are two games in back of the first-place Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North.
But what, exactly, is Davis getting for the reported 10-year, $100 million contract he will give Gruden?
Gruden has not coached since 2008. In a league that evolves year to year, that is an eternity. He has studied tape and met with players, particularly quarterbacks, in his role as a broadcaster. But he has not coached the generation of players coming out with the current college skill set. He has not run a team under the practice rules that were put in place with the current collective bargaining agreement. There are certainly adjustments ahead for Gruden.
A 5-0 start gave way to a 1-6 downward spiral, which gave way to a 4-0 finish. Which version of the Chiefs will be on display during the postseason? It’s impossible to know. Even so, it’s difficult to envision them losing at home to the upstart Titans. A victory this weekend might send the Chiefs back to New England, where they won the NFL’s season-opening game in stunning fashion to quickly end any notion of the Patriots chasing a 19-0 season.
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.
The Minnesota Vikings advanced to the NFC Championship game after Stefon Diggs’ miraculous game-winning reception.
While the Titans did jump, it appeared the Patriots’ center moved his head quickly, causing them to move.
The Patriots would take the first down, and move into Titans territory, eventually scoring with a Chris Hogan touchdown reception from Tom Brady with 1:52 left in the first half.
It’s not the way the Titans were hoping to finish out the first half, after getting off to a relatively good start after leading the first quarter 7-0.
Depending on how the game goes, we might see this call come back to bite the Titans.
Caitlin: “I’m dying over here, and you’re like, ‘Ohhh, this game is so good!’” (In his defense, the Bucs did kick a last-second field goal to beat the Panthers that evening.)
It may not have had the stakes of last March’s Sweet 16 dagger over Wisconsin, but Florida’s Chris Chiozza had one of this season’s more unusual game-winners when he picked off a pass in the backcourt and broke away for a layup to beat Missouri.
Shoutout to Grambling State’s Shakyla Hill for a quadruple-double against Alabama State last Thursday. She finished with 15 points, 10 assists, 10 rebounds and 10 steals, and made LeBron take notice in the process.
You’re not going to find many acceptance speeches better than Oprah’s at last night’s Golden Globes. If you didn’t watch it then, do it now.
Early in the second half, he gave an official a hug after he was pulled away from Rishard Matthews on a play in which the Titans were called for a delay of game.
Sticking in New Orleans, Saints right guard Larry Warford has been a monster free agent signing. Here, Warford is pulling to the right on a G-lead play. The flag is for the fullback. Warford doesn’t get a flag because he keeps running his feet to finish his block. If he had stopped his feet and finished by shoving, he probably gets a flag.
Moving right along to Los Angeles, where the Rams offense just wasn’t as explosive as usual. Credit the Falcons defense for playing fast. It looked ready from the jump. Rams left guard Rodger Saffold is always ready for a disrespectful block. Here, he helps Andrew Whitworth on the double team and then gets a full slab with the center!
Tackles getting out on screens have a difficult job. They have to avoid the defensive end, then get out flat to have a great angle on the defender they are going to block. Jack Conklin clears the defensive end and makes his way to his defender. He’s a tad upfield, but that doesn’t matter because Darrelle Revis isn’t moving anywhere. So Conklin moves him for himself.
A lot of not-famous coaches were not chased by the NFL mob (Noll for one), so I’d much rather be sure of the franchise architect than pursue whoever this year’s Golden Coach is. Giants president/co-owner John Mara said Monday he would use former Giants GM Ernie Accorsi as a resource in his search. Accorsi has been there. He knows that time is on the Giants’ side.
Despite splitting playing time with Mark Ingram, Kamara is only the third rookie in NFL history, and the first in more than 30 years, to have more than 800 receiving yards and 700 rushing yards. Per Pro Football Focus, he had the third most yards per passing route run, behind only Julio Jones and Antonio Brown, two of the premier actual wide receivers in the NFL. His PFF “elusive” rating—meaning his “success beyond the point of being helped by his blockers”—is the best in the league. As a receiver, his 81 catches rank 13th in the league and second for running backs, behind only Le’Veon Bell, who averages 2.5 fewer yards per reception than Kamara. As a running back, his 6.1 yards per carry led the NFL. And his 14 total touchdowns were second in the league. He is only the second rookie, after Gale Sayers in 1965, to have at least five touchdowns both receiving and rushing, plus a kickoff return TD.
Kamara’s ability to make defenders miss is hard for even him to describe. He says that when he has the ball in his hands he goes into “Matrix mode.” The play slows down around him, everything becomes clearer, and he’s able to see “ten steps ahead.” He’s not worried about the defender who’s currently trying to tackle him, because he already knows how he’s going to evade him. He’s thinking about the next would-be tackler. “I’m diagnosing moves before I make them,” he says. “Ten yards down the field—I’m thinking about what I’m going to do when I get there.”
Romo was spot-on the entire time. That’s the best part about watching any game that he calls: He still is a quarterback, and he gets us to view the game through the same eyes as the quarterbacks on the field, from Brady to Blake Bortles. We get to live a little more vicariously through the players on the field, adding a layer to the TV experience that very few (if any?) sports announcers are able to do.
Payton signaled for two coaches’ challenges in a four-play span despite having no replay evidence to suggest officials had botched either call. He unsurprisingly lost both, losing two timeouts in the process and ensuring he’d go the majority of the fourth quarter without the ability to question anymore officiating mistakes in the Divisional Round of the 2018 playoffs.
