Mike Ditka blasts ‘a—hole’ journalists hounding Tom Brady over Donald Trump

Iron Mike Ditka never disappoints.

Nearly a year after he called President Barack Obama the “worst” president ever, the outspoken ESPN analyst ripped sports journalists concerned about Tom Brady’s friendship with President Donald Trump, Obama (again) and protesting 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Cousins has done enough in the past two seasons — at least in Washington’s eyes — to merit being compensated like a second-tier QB.

But even with an estimated $61 million in salary cap space, Washington will find it difficult to retain the receivers who have been key in Cousins’ growth.

Both of the Redskins’ veteran outside starters, Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, are pending free agents. So is tight end Vernon Davis, who was vital insurance for the oft-injured Jordan Reed last season.

Offensive coordinator Sean McVay, who was a big reason why Cousins thrived, left to work with Jared Goff as the Rams’ new head coach. With Garcon, Jackson, Davis, Reed and young slot NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ace Jamison Crowder, McVay did a good job helping Cousins get comfortable in spreading the field to diverse targets.

Garcon and Jackson both are 30, the typical age at which wideouts decline. Jackson, an Plain Cheap Jerseys all-or-nothing, big-play receiver, is easier to let walk because he’s more reliant on speed, which means he’s bound to slow down soon.

Garcon, however, is the key keep. His combination of versatility, durability and route-running ability is hard to find.

Pass rush vital for Falcons to slow Tom Brady

While Vic Beasley led the NFL with 15 1/2 sacks, the Falcons had one of the NFL’s worst pass-rushing units.

Atlanta’s pass rush was sixth-worst in the NFL, pressuring opposing quarterbacks on only 24.9 percent of pass plays.

If they can’t put pressure on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in Super Bowl 51, he will pick them apart.

Freeman, who ripped off a 37-yard run on Atlanta’s first play from scrimmage, had 71 rushing yards and the touchdown before Lady Gaga performed at halftime.

The Falcons defense, which was maligned for most of the season, but steadily improved, was superb in the first half Sunday. The Falcons had the NFL’s 25th-ranked defense and allowed 104.5 yards per game. They shut the Patriots ground game down Sunday, holding New England to just 35 rushing yards in the first half.

The Falcons added to their lead with a 19-yard pass to rookie tight end Austin Hooper with 8:48 remaining in the first half. The 14-point deficit was the largest ever faced in the Super Bowl by a Patriots team led by Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady. No team in Super Bowl history has ever won after trailing by 14 points or more.

Ryan was nearly flawless in the first half, going 7 of 8 for 115 and a touchdown. Brady went into halftime 15 of 25 for 179 yards and a costly interception.

Robert Alford jumped a Brady pass and returned it 82 Raiders Cheap Jerseys yards Orioles Cheap Jerseys to give the Falcons a commanding 21-0 lead with 2:21 remaining in the half.

Emmitt Smith: Cowboys could have won 4 Super Bowls with Jimmy Johnson

For all the talk about this year’s new inductees, there seemed to be more buzz and puzzlement over Owens’ snub. He’s certainly got the numbers, standing second in all-time receiving yards, third in receiving touchdowns … if he’s not a Hall of Fame receiver, many fans wondered, who, besides Jerry Rice, fits the bill?

Owens is second all-time in receiving yards with 15,934, third in receiving touchdowns with 153, and eighth with 1,078 receptions.

Cox, 48, has coached Atlanta’s defensive line since 2014. Besides a decade of NFL coaching experience, Cox also was a three-time All-Pro during a 12-year playing career at linebacker.

The Falcons already made a major coaching move earlier in the day when hiring Steve Sarkisian away from the University of Alabama to replace outgoing offensive cordiantor Kyle Shanahan, who Trade Cheap Jerseys left to become San Francisco’s new head coach.

Other changes are set to follow with teams requesting interviews through the Falcons to hire staff members for their own vacancies. The Falcons are expected to grant some of them but veto others for those who remain under contract even if it means a potential promotion and/or raise, which Nike NFL Jerseys 2014 is a common practice among almost all NFL teams seeking to retain talented assistants.

Meet David Njoku, the tight end worth drafting in the first round in 2017

David Njoku remembers watching fellow former Miami Hurricanes tight end Jimmy Graham do it first and saying, “Hey, maybe I’ll try that.”

So when Miami faced Pitt on Nov. 5, Njoku took a delayed release to the flat and made the catch.

He saw teammate Braxton Berrios blocking Pitt’s Terrish Webb near the goal line. Njoku tried that.

He took off from the 3-yard line and flipped into the end zone.

That’s a visual reminder of the talent the 6-4, 245-pound tight end possesses heading into the 2017 NFL Draft. He’s a first-round pick according to some mock drafts, and he can solidify that with a strong showing at the NFL Scouting Combine from Feb. 28-March 6 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Tagging players can be a rather confusing method to understand. Here’s everything you need know about how the process works.

The franchise tag allows teams to lock up a top free agent for one season. Some free agents want to cash in with massive, long-term contracts filled, including guaranteed money. If teams aren’t ready to commit to that type of deal, the tag gives them more time to work out a long-term extension, or Basketball Jerseys Custom evaluate a given player’s value for another season.

Dwayne Bowe to start vs. Broncos

Drew Brees is on pace for 5,433 passing yards this season. Kind of underwhelming when you consider Peyton Manning’s current pace of 50,000 or whatever it is now. That would be the second-highest total ever (likely third after Manning finishes the season), right behind his own record from 2011, and it would be Brees’ fourth season with 5,000 yards or more. Stats don’t really matter to the Saints right now, probably not as much as balance does.

Fortunately for New Orleans, Monte Kiffin’s not exactly the Jets when it comes to defensive game planning. Dallas defensive line could give Brees his fair share of problems, but Cheap Youth MLB Jerseys how much time is he really going to need to feast on the wide open spaces in the Cowboys secondary?

At first I thought this spread was a little generous. Then I looked at passing yards Dallas has surrendered to above average quarterbacks this season.

A source has revealed that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe will start against the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football, according to ESPN.

According to the report Bowe’s recent marijuana arrest will not affect his status in Week 11, and noted that the team has not yet handled the issue internally. Sunday’s game is of vital importance to both teams, with the winner taking control atop the AFC West.

Bowe signed a five-year, $56 million contract in 2017 and has been underwhelming in 2017. He has caught 33 passes for 369 yards and a two touchdowns — on pace for the lowest totals of his career. Despite these struggles the Chiefs need a big target for end zone passes, as the team’s receiving leaders are Donnie Avery and running back Jamaal Charles, both of whom are small players.

It remains to be seen if the league will Cheap Youth Baseball Jerseys take any action against Bowe for his arrest. Traditionally NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has waited for the legal system to render judgement before handing down penalty. Bowe is scheduled for his first court appearance on Dec. 18.

That s not how it was on Thursday. Michigan s offense put up a decent point total and shot fine, but not by their own lofty standards. UM shot 43.1 percent from the field and had an effective shooting percentage of 52.6, which is fine but not special. Michigan s defense, never a great strength this year, needed it to be special or at least one more point in the direction of special.

The Wolverines didn t get many open looks, and Oregon made them work for every inch. Ducks forward Jordan Bell had a strong defensive game, working against Michigan s D.J. Wilson and Moritz Wagner, two March stars to date. Wilson and Wagner went a combined 7-of-20 from the field for 19 points.

Walton has been arguably the player of NBA Cheap Jerseys China the tournament, and he starred again: 20 points on 6-of-10 shooting, including some incredible, gutsy makes. Walton s help on this night came from his co-senior leader, small forward Zak Irvin. While he s been a double-figures machine all month, Irvin had his best game yet: 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting, with some of his biggest points coming down the stretch.

What is also a sure thing is how dire the Cavs’ repeat chances will become if Cleveland continues its porous defense. The Cavs rank 22nd in the NBA in defensive efficiency this season and 29th in March, according to ESPN Stats & Information. No NBA champion in the past 20 seasons finished the regular season ranked worse than 19th in that category (the 2000-01 Los Angeles Lakers, another repeat champion). Last season, the Cavs finished 10th in defensive efficiency.

Cleveland guard Kyrie Irving had MLB Baseball Jerseys no interest in reflecting on where the Cavs were at this point last season — holding a 50-20 record and dealing with the fallout of James’ bizarre social media habits after he unfollowed the Cavs’ team account on Twitter — compared to where they currently stand, at 46-24 and having lost six of their past 10 games.

With Kevin Durant gone, Westbrook has full control of the offense. He ll obviously score double-digit points, and averaging double-digit assists seems likely. The big question is whether the 6 3 guard can rebound enough throughout the year.

Oscar Robertson did it in the 1961-62 season, averaging 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 11.4 assists when the NBA s pace was up at a ridiculous level. He came close (within 1.0 assist or rebound) four more times. The last player to come relatively close to averaging a triple-double was Jason Kidd in 2006-07, when he averaged 13 points, 9.2 assists and 8.2 rebounds. LeBron James and James Harden are also close this season, but nobody is as close as Westbrook.

From Nov. 26 to Dec. 9, Westbrook piled NBA Cheap Jerseys up seven straight triple-doubles, becoming the first player since Michael Jordan in 1989 to do that. Westbrook s streak was snapped on Dec. 11 when he only recorded six assists.

“I have the utmost confidence in what my boy is doing, LaVar Ball said via TMZ. He s better than Steph Curry to me. Put Steph Curry on UCLA s team right now and put my boy on Golden State and watch what happens.”

“He s going to be better than Steph Curry,” Ball said, according to TMZ. “Steph Curry s really good, but my son is young, he s got time to go. And you only consider him good because he won a couple of championships. What if he didn t win no championships? He made some shots at the right time. But he s not as young as my boy.”

“I m going to tell you right now before you see it,” LaVar said during an ESPN broadcast. “UCLA is going to win the NCAA championship. You think I m playing? Right here and right now. Guaranteed. Come see me when they win it.”

“A billion dollars, it has to be MLB Authentic Jerseys there,” Ball told USA Today in an article published Monday. “That’s our number, a billion, straight out of the gate. And you don’t even have to give it to me all up front. Give us $100 million a year.”

“Snacks” Harrison was the best free-agent signing of 2017; he became a dominant pure inside run stopper. This year, Brandon Williams got more than Harrison to stay in Baltimore, although it was weird there was limited interest; more suitors could have further raised his value as the highest-paid nose tackle. Hankins, who played well next to Harrison, hasn’t been that hot of a name yet. Poe had a down year in Kansas City, but there’s no way a solid nose tackle like him should be lasting this long on the market. Good things will come to those teams that wait to get these two.

Staubach also had a top-10 rushing attack for eight of those nine seasons, stamped by Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett at the end of the decade. Romo played with mostly mediocre-to-poor running NBA Basketball Jerseys games and only one top-10 rushing offense before DeMarco Murray and the offensive line dominated in 2014.

Speaking of defense, running game and line play, all of those were strongly in Aikman’s favor during his Pro and Super Bowl heyday throughout the early ’90s. The Cowboys were a top-five scoring defense and top-10 total defense for five of those seasons. They were a consistently elite rushing attack with all-time leading rusher Emmitt Smith and a nasty road-grading front. Despite Dallas tending to dynastically dominate, Aikman did manage 16 fourth-quarter comebacks and 21 game-winning drives in 165 starts (12.7 percent).

Staubach played with six fellow Hall of Famers over both sides of the ball during his Cowboys’ tenure, not to mention his late great coach, Tom Landry. Aikman got big-time Mitchell And Ness Cheap Jerseys Canton support from Smith, Michael Irvin and Larry Allen on his side of the ball. Romo will end up with only Owens, DeMarcus Ware, Jason Witten and maybe one or two their current young stud offensive linemen, with whom he didn’t overlap much.

Juszczyk, DiMarco, James Develin and Mike Tolbert all are under contract already for ’17. So is everyone’s favorite third-down scatback, Woodhead. Latavius Murray, Adrian Peterson, LeGarrette Blount, Jamaal Charles and the other capable veteran early-down backs all heard crickets. It’s either being a young stud such as Le’Veon Bell in his prime to be tagged and well-compensated, or it’s a terrible market at the game’s most interchangeable position. Hurting all those vets more is the fact the draft class is extremely strong, led by Leonard Fournette, Dalvin Cook and Christian McCaffrey.

That’s not taking away from Staubach’s exceptional clutch play that gave him the well-deserved “Captain Comeback” nickname. His combination of arm and athleticism was ahead of his time, and he’s still respected as one of the greatest leaders of all time. He was credited with 15 fourth-quarter comebacks and 23 game-winning drives in 114 starts (20 percent), two more of each during his 17 playoff games (11-6).

But that points gap could prove important. Both Wales and the Republic of Ireland prefer to play on the counter, but Wales, after disappointing draws against Serbia and Georgia, can’t afford not to win. The onus is on them, which may work to Ireland’s favour. Shane Long and McClean don’t have Bale’s class, but not all counter-attacks need a genius.

Even if the Welsh do pick up their second win of the campaign, inflicting Ireland’s first defeat in the process, the fixture list has been kind to O’Neill’s side. They lead the group despite having played three away games and just one at home, and they’ve already been to Serbia and Austria. Only two away games remain: a trip to Georgia and the final game in Cardiff. And if they can squeeze out a good result on Friday, then maintain decent form at Minnesota Vikings Cheap Jerseys home, that tantalising Mls Cheap Jerseys showdown might end up a formality.

He’s averaging $15 million a season as a stopgap unproven starter. That’s insane, especially when the Bears were so adamant about cutting bait on Jay Cutler and his hefty salary. It will get worse when MLB Jerseys Wholesale Chicago drafts a potential franchise QB, meaning it’s not a given, even at that price, that Glennon will be without any competition in the short term. It will be hard to top this whopper of an awful move, especially when spending this money on a need at cornerback would have been 10 times better.

Maybe the jersey isn’t quite as valuable as priceless works of art, but $500,000 is still a pretty penny. That’s how it was valued in a Houston Police Department report obtained by TMZ.

During a time when every team at every level of the game wants to trade size for speed and downsize accordingly, Gonzaga has stayed big. The ‘Zags still play through the post and it starts with Karnowski. Having a 300-pounder who can score with his back to the basket and spot open shooters is a luxury few teams enjoy.

Still, the ‘Zags are excelling this year, in part because Karnowski is a piece of the puzzle, not the totality of it. Point guard Nigel Williams-Goss, a Washington transfer, has been Gonzaga’s best player. Add in the other two marquee transfers — guard Jordan Mathews (Cal) and big Jonathan Williams (Missouri) — and the ‘Zags have few holes in their lineup.

Amid so much turnover this season, Karnowski has been a constant presence. Rosberg, citing having achieved his goals and wanting to spend more time with his family, retired and left Mercedes and all thoughts of competing with Hamilton for another grueling season in the rear-view mirror.

That last number is particularly important. Many consider rating to be overrated, but it’s a useful statistic when examining quarterbacks in the current pass-happy, highly efficient Miami Heat Cheap Jerseys state of NFL passing games. That’s the perfect tranisition to comparing Romo to his Hall of Fame counterparts.
