From postgame press conferences to next-day media availabilities, NFL players and coaches can’t escape the microphone.

The Packers and Bills are dealing with serious quarterback issues after blowout losses on Sunday. The Packers are sticking with Brett Hundley, not that head coach Mike McCarthy has much of a choice, while Bills coach Sean McDermott wouldn’t say if he’d turn the offense back over to Tyrod Taylor after rookie Nathan Peterman threw five interceptions against the Chargers.

Results: Poe ended up making the same amount as Logan from Atlanta on a one-year deal, but the sacks he was hoping for to boost his 2018 free-agency value haven’t materialized. Logan actually has higher sack (1.5) and tackle (32) totals than Poe (.5 and 16), although Kansas City’s overall defense is more porous.

Thanks to Detroit’s pedestrian rushing attack, Stafford has continued to carry the offensive load. He’s completed 63.1 percent of his passes with 19 touchdowns while getting picked off just five times.

The Celtics struggled with their efficiency in the first half, shooting 33.3 percent from the field and scoring just three points off 10 Miami first-half turnovers.

The Celtics’ bench was the most glaring problem in the opening half, with Marcus Morris, Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier combining to shoot 3-of-15 in 36 combined minutes.

But there’s the antics, the immaturity. I know kids these days are big into ‘swagger’ and Justin Schultz Womens Jersey the hype. Social media has created this aura, this culture around kids. And Baker is a kid who I think has bought into this mentality.

Does he fall out of the first round? Yeah, maybe. It wasn’t a good look. You want emotion from your quarterback, but you don’t want emotional instability. He’s going to have to overcome this with a lot of teams. Factor in that he’s not the tallest quarterback in the world and that’s two things that will give pause to some teams.he start in the NFL? I think so. Is he a risk? Yeah, I think that too.

Tampa Bay went 1 for 6 on the power play, while the Blackhawks were 1 of 4.

It feels unlikely that the Patriots will extend Butler, after an offseason in which they paid big bucks for free-agent cornerback Stephon Gilmore and Butler openly tried to get himself traded to New Orleans.

Down by 14 midway through the fourth, the unflappable Celtics went on a 13-0 run in just about three minutes — getting to 91-90 when Smart made one of two free throws with 3:14 remaining.

Waiters decided that was close enough. His 3-pointer from the left wing bounced off the rim, then the top of the backboard, before falling to end Miami’s scoreless drought. Waiters added another 3-pointer over Al Horford to make the lead seven, Hassan Whiteside had a big tip-in with 1:10 left and Miami would hang on from there.

Celtics: Aron Baynes started for Morris, who wanted to test his problematic knee. Morris played 21 minutes off the bench. … Boston turned Miami’s first eight turnovers into exactly zero points. The Celtics wound up getting nine points off 16 Miami giveaways. … Shane Larkin was shaken up briefly after taking a hard foul near the rim by Miami’s Kelly Olynyk early in the fourth.

With Jones playing at less than 100 percent, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan did not have his safety valve and the Panthers brought constant pressure.

3. Saints are the class of the NFC South 鈥?New Orleans is playing on a different level with a defense that has been dominant to go with Al Jefferson Jersey the Saints’ usual potent offense. No other team in the division is playing with the kind of balance the Saints have.

Vasilevskiy made a kick save on Richard Panik’s in-close chance 6 minutes into the third.

Warriors’ Kevin Durant probable for game vs. Thunder

Kevin Durant has been upgraded to probable for the Golden State Warriors’ showdown Wednesday night against his former team, the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Durant arrived at the arena for shootaround Wednesday about 45 minutes before the rest of the team to get in some on-the-court work.

Sherman, taller than most cornerbacks at 6-foot-2, was the 24th of 37 corners drafted in 2011. This was before there were Carroll disciples such as Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn, Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator Ken Norton and San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh targeting similar corners for other teams.

It’s easy to forget the Mark LeGrees of past drafts. It’s also easy to forget that another corner Seattle selected that year, sixth-rounder Byron Maxwell, was ahead of Sherman on the depth chart in camp and might have gotten a shot at starting ahead of Sherman had he avoided injuries at the time. There was no holding back Sherman ultimately, but he plausibly could have landed on another team, in a different scheme, and never found the same opportunities.

Joseph’s remark applied to the quarterback position as he wouldn’t commit to Brock Osweiler as the starter Sunday against the Bengals.

Denver started the season 3-1, but poor quarterback play and an uncharacteristically bad defense has plagued the team as it’s fallen to 3-6.

“We f—g stink,” defensive end Derek Wolfe said (via KUSA.com).

“I don’t know, man, it’s just sad. It’s just real sad,” Wolfe added (via ESPN.com). “It’s sad we went from a championship-caliber team to a team that stinks and nobody respects us. …

“I don’t know what the answer is. I’m at a loss. … It’s not easy to come to work when you’re losing. … It’s not like no one is trying. We are playing hard. We are not giving up.”nationals_001

Dolphins waive Rey Maualuga after overnight arrest for battery

The Miami Dolphins waived Rey Maualuga on Saturday after the veteran linebacker was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge earlier in the morning.

The team announced the move without comment on the legal situation.

Maualuga had 23 tackles for the Dolphins this season in six games, four of them being starts.

The Dolphins (4-5) likely will turn to either Mike Hull or Chase Allen at middle linebacker for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Maualuga’s arrest is another chapter in a crazy season for Miami that also included former offensive line coach Chris Foerster resigning following a video surfacing of him snorting a white, powdery substance and Maualuga’s fellow linebacker Lawrence Timmons going AWOL before Miami’s Week 2 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The meme from the popular children’s TV show has now spilled into the NFL world, with Jaguars safety Jalen Ramsey having the image painted on his cleats.

It’s fitting that Ramsey chose this week to wear the Deion Sanders Authentic Jersey cleats, since the Jaguars will be in Cleveland to take on the winless Browns.

It wouldn’t be surprising if the mood for Jacksonville after this game is a good one.

As the league’s TV ratings and favorability polls have drifted downward this autumn, a growing number of owners have expressed their dissatisfaction with Goodell’s stewardship: He has not held many executives accountable despite a long line of mishandled crises; even with tens of millions of dollars invested in new executives and consultants, Goodell still has not managed to resolve high-profile cases of player discipline without embarrassing legal battles; behind closed doors, even perfunctory policy decisions, like the posting of game highlights on Twitter, have become bitter showdowns among owners and executives.

They don’t call it nine-man football here. Here it’s just football.

Another team whose color scheme doesn’t really evoke its moniker. Why red, Raptors? I’m not sure what much else they could do, but these jerseys are pretty simple for a team named after a dinosaur. Maybe they JaVale McGee Womens Jersey should throw a triangular pattern on there inspired by an actual raptor’s feathery breast.

Lamping had worked as an executive with Anheuser-Busch and the St. Louis Cardinals and overseen the construction of MetLife stadium. Then Khan gave him an unthinkable challenge: turning the Jacksonville Jaguars into an international brand.

Game Womens Tyler Lockett Jersey That was one of Khan’s first grand ideas. Before the stadium renovations, before the downtown development project, Khan raised his hand in 2012 when the NFL was looking for a team willing to play one game a year in London, on a regular basis. Before the league could decide whether it could move a team across the Atlantic permanently, it needed to see if the London market could throw its support behind one team. It needed a guinea pig.

The league was taking advice and proposals from players as late as Friday night on this issue. Many players want the league to partner with them to work on inner-city problems, particularly in civil rights and relations with police.

I would like to work with the Great Muta in a tag match or all-star six-man match.

The contract, signed in 2015, was absolutely toxic, one of the worst deals for any team in football, hefty and inescapable for a player who can be great but more often . . . well. But a 2018 cap hit just north of $10 million for a high-risk player is only part of the problem. There is incredible depth at interior defensive line across the NFL right now. Remember what happened to Johnathan Hankins this past offseason?

Limited Womens Michael Matheson Jersey Gore runs tough, he always falls forward and he chewed up a lot of necessary yards (he ended with 82 yards on 16 carries) for the Colts when they were trying to run down the clock late. The rookie’s time to shine will have to wait at least another week.

The following year Schlopy lost a job to veteran Norm Johnson at Seahawks camp. In ’87 Schlopy was back in Buffalo and, again, was bested by Norwood. This time, however, as he was packing up his belongings in the locker room, Bills coach Marv Levy approached. Something is going on here, Levy said, and you should go upstairs because management wants to talk.

Obviously, he’s had a pretty special career, Justin Verlander said earlier this week. In my opinion, he’s already a Hall of Famer. I talked to him a little bit when [the Dodgers] were in Detroit and there’s a lot of admiration there, the way he goes about his business, his preparation, his execution of pitches.

We’ve talked about it. Spring Break is all about creating moments, and that would be a moment. That’s the dream. Great Muta is the best of all-time, and we’d show him a good time during Spring Break. If I Trevor Ariza Youth jersey get the opportunity to go in the ring with the Great Muta, the opportunities are endless. I’ll be selling the mist for about three years.

Janela revealed that his goal in wrestling is to make enough money to give back to his mom for all she did to support him.

I do what I do, and I don’t give a sh– about what people think, said Janela. I’m punk rock. That doesn’t appeal to everyone.

He finished 38th and 20th in his first two Martinsville races and then 12th last October.

Los Angelenos with a laid-back reputation were on their feet for two-strike counts against Astros batters, a wave in Pantone 294 — also known as Dodger blue.

“We feed off the crowd, for sure,” Taylor said. “We feel we have a huge home-field advantage.”

Yuli Gurriel, who made a racist gesture toward Darvish in Game 3, was booed loudly during introductions and each time he batted, and Hill stepped off the rubber to allow the crowd extra time to jeer.

So the Jackets are winning without every gear turning in the same direction. Tortorella is already Tortsing all over this team, demoting goals leader Sonny Milano to the fourth line during a drought and stripping Brandon Dubinsky of his alternate captaincy in an effort to get him going. Yes, this is a bit like giving a thoroughbred the whip after the first quarter turn, but this is what Tortorella does.

He finished 38th and 20th in his first two Martinsville races and then 12th last October. In April, he finished third.

“He did a great job,” crew chief Alan Gustafson said. “This is a tough track for us to start. His rookie year, he didn’t have much success and ran good in the spring.

“The test was terrible for us two weeks ago. Just terrible. We took a different car, we did a lot of work, and he did a lot of work and came back and obviously had a car that could win.”

Gustafson said he expects drivers to have contact for the lead. Then they’ll try to get back on track Wednesday, when they host the Indiana Pacers, another supposed Eastern Conference cellar dweller that might not be an easy out, considering the way the Pacers upset the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday. Whatever happens against the Pacers, the Cavs have put themselves behind the eight ball.ducks-009

Darvish did use a World Series ball in his bullpen session before Tuesday’s game and said his slider was better.

Saban’s idea of a good lunch is a hotly contested pickup basketball game at noon with his assistants and staff members. He has been doing it since his days at LSU and is always the point guard. Rumor has it that he’s also the commissioner and is usually the one to choose up sides. When he and Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher were together at LSU, they had some epic battles, but Saban quipped, Jimbo always won because he was on my team. I was the point guard, and he was the shooting guard. — C.L.

Among notable deflations in the rankings, Paul George is sacrificing a good bit of point production and is seeing a sizable downturn in complementary stats, such as rebounds and assists, while integrating into an offense that funnels through Russell Westbrook. There will be better days ahead for George, but I fear most of his value surfaces best in category formats, where his 2.7 steals and nice shooting clip translates to providing help at often scarce stats, whereas his loss of volume in a new role really curbs the appeal in points leagues.

In Week 4, ESPN’s Monday night rating for the Kansas City-Washington game was 19 percent lower than the Detroit-Seattle Week 4 game in 2015. NBC’s Sunday night Indianapolis-Seattle rating was down 32 percent compared to the Dallas-New Orleans game in 2015. Now, you can say a lot about that second comparison, namely that any game Devonta Freeman Authentic Jersey with Dallas will get a good rating. But no matter what the matchup, to be down by a third, week over week, from two years ago is notable.

Now, I doubt in NBC’s case that a third fewer people watched this year’s game in Week 4 than watched in 2015. People who follow the ratings game closely tell me that some fans are cord-cutters who have found ways to watch that aren’t measured by traditional rating services. Still, the numbers are concerning.

The magicians have souped up and sped up their offense

Did we think it was gone? It had a good sound. But the reaction was muted all around. Even in center field, the fans seems to react late to it, rising like a wave only as center fielder Albert Almora Jr. gets close to the wall. Taylor sprints out of the box; Quintana adjusts his cup at the six-second mark.

The second baseman points to the sky; pop up. The announcer calls it as a fly out most of the way, with just the slightest lift on the last half of the word high.

I am so glad the makers of the movie didn’t stick to sports. Stone is terrific capturing the personal side of King, who was married but unsure of her sexuality. The scenes of her falling in love with a woman are heartfelt and important. I really liked the movie. Carell’s magnificent in it.

Now I’m in a position where I can afford what I want, but there’s no benefit if you’re not giving back to people who need. I just moved to Jersey. I’m blessed beyond means. I don’t need for anything. As I’m moving homes I realize I have too much stuff. Too much excess. What do you do? I don’t need to keep this. It’s been humbling. It’s athletes who have more than what we need.

Orlando Magic. The magicians have souped up and sped up their offense, and the results have been auspicious. They rank second in offensive efficiency, but more importantly, this looks like a team of players who finally understand their roles.

The Celtics. I already thought they were a bit overrated going into the season, and had them pegged to finish behind the Raptors in the Atlantic. Then Gordon Hayward went down, seemingly ruining a season that began with high hopes. Now they’ve won five straight, even as an almost entirely new roster continues to jell.

Game 7 a fitting conclusion for Astros, Dodgers

Yeah, I think it seems fitting, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said when asked about this World Series going seven games. You’ve got the two best teams in baseball going head to head.

Game Mike Shannon Jersey Like we’ve talked about from the beginning, these two teams mirror one another. And the compete and fight in both teams is the most important thing I see as similarities. But, again, we worked all year long to have home-field advantage, and here we Authentic Manny Ramirez Jersey are. It’s only fitting for this series, yeah.

The Dodgers will aim for their seventh World Series title all time, while the Astros are looking to lock down their first. In Houston’s only other World Series appearance, the Chicago White Sox emerged with a sweep in 2005.

Hinch announced after the Game 6 defeat that Lance McCullers Jr. would be his starter for Game 7. The right-hander gave up three runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings while earning the victory in Game 3, but he was not satisfied with that performance. He said he was far from sharp and had to grind to get through the outing.

We’re the two best teams in baseball, and I think that has been solidified by how amazing this series has been, McCullers said. And I expect all of our guys to come to the park ready to win tomorrow, just like I would expect all of (the Dodgers) to come into the park ready to win tomorrow. Which is what I think is what makes this series so great, is you’ve got two teams with a bunch of dogs in the clubhouse. No one is afraid to back down. And I expect a great Game 7.
