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.

Watch: Retired RB Rashard Mendenhall shows off karate tetherball skills

Revis’ return to the Jets was not the honeymoon everyone expected, as his play fell off a cliff the last two seasons. He can still play football; just not anywhere close to the level he played at in the past.

Revis’ situation is complicated, because the Jets owe him $6 million. So unless a team pays him more than $6 million, he will earn the same sitting on the couch as he would playing football. If not for that guarantee, he would probably be employed somewhere right now for $1.5 million-$2 million, but with no financial incentive, he might sit out.

Sitting out might make it harder for Revis to find a job next season, but the odds would be against him receiving a lucrative contract in 2018 even if he did play this year. There is probably no real benefit for a team to take on the injury risk. Revis could be a mid-season addition to a contender, but don’t be surprised if we don’t see him play in 2017.

When Rashard Mendenhall isn’t enjoying the luxury of retired life, he’s maintaining his athletic talents.

In a 72-second video posted on his Twitter account Monday night, the former Steelers running back showed off his tetherball skills while doing karate.

Mendenhall had shared another video of himself practicing karate a few days Cheap Jerseys NBA earlier on Saturday, which showed the retired rusher moving around the inside of a dance studio in a black leotard.

Mendenhall, 29, was selected 23rd overall by Pittsburgh in the Cheap Jerseys Made In USA 2008 NFL Draft. After six seasons, which also included a one-year stint with the Cardinals, the Super Bowl XLIII champion retired from football. Mendenhall has most recently worked as a staff writer and story editor for the HBO series “Ballers.”

Retirement ranks below barbecue on Vince Wilfork’s current list of priorities

Two-time Super Bowl champion Vince Wilfork is playing his cards close to his vest when it comes to publicly discussing his future in the NFL.

The 35-year-old nose tackle reportedly did not receive a qualifying offer from the Texans after the 2016 season, and it has been widely speculated that he will retire this offseason. Wilfork spent the last two seasons in Houston after spending 11 years in New England. In 13 seasons in the NFL, he has recorded 559 combined tackles, but his production declined after his move to Houston.

Wilfork’s second love, in addition to football, is cooking. The five-time Pro Bowler partnered with Kingsford Charcoal in an effort to make barbecue ribs the national food of the United States. Kingsford filed a petition Wednesday on “We The People,” a government website that allows citizens to petition for change. To earn a response, the petition needs to receive 100,000 signatures in 30 days.

While the Patriots gave Hawkins a contract, there’s no guarantee he’ll make the final 53-man roster. He joins an extremely crowded receiving corps, which currently has 11 other receivers. The most notable names are Julian Edelman, Brandin Cooks (acquired this offseason), Danny Amendola (who just renegotiated his contract), Chris Hogan (who played a big role last year) and Malcolm Mitchell.

After those five, there’s a chance for Hawkins to make a role Cheap Jerseys AUStralia for himself, but it could be difficult. The fact he passed up other, bigger offers to join New England speaks to the fact he believes in his ability to outwork other players on the team Cheap Jerseys For Kids and earn some playing time on the reigning Super Bowl champs.

Sherman and the defense know the difference between very good quarterbacks and great ones.

Atallah, though, said the NFLPA faces a different challenge than NFL teams whose ownership groups rarely change: a heavy turnover of its members, i.e., the players who help set the agenda for CBA bartering.

“If you think about 250 to 300 players coming in Cheap Hockey Practice Jerseys and out of the league every year, 250 to 300 who will be in the 2021 draft are currently 16, 17, 18 years old,” Atallah said. “That’s a lot of education and preparation that needs to take place.”

Atallah said the ever-changing membership and length of time before the next CBA expires makes it impossible for him to say there is a “must-have” from the NFL in upcoming labor talks.

“Sherman and the defense know the difference between very good quarterbacks and great ones. They see how Wilson, only 5-11, struggles to anticipate open windows; they see the offensive staff breaking down film of the Saints’ offense to figure out ways to deploy tight end Jimmy Graham, an All-Pro in New Orleans and a highly paid, ineffective red zone weapon in Seattle. It galls the defense to hear Wilson, ever positive, stand behind a podium and insist that the offense ‘made some great plays’ after games in which the Seahawks barely score — and then be propped up as if he were Aaron Rodgers.”

The article also details the awkward saga that has been Sherman’s 2017 offseason. The corner, still an All-Pro caliber player, has been the subject of admitted trade talks. Sherman’s inability to get over the Seahawks’ loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX, according to the article, has not meshed with the attitudes of Carroll and Wilson, who immediately put the loss behind them.

Josh Hamilton hurts left knee for fourth time in two seasons

Cornerback. That position and wide receiver were the two biggest need areas entering the offseason. The Eagles handled the latter by signing veterans Alshon Jeffrey (Chicago) and Torrey Smith (San Francisco). The former will almost certainly be addressed early in April’s draft.

Left/right tackle. Ereck Flowers can be a great right tackle. He’ll never be a great left tackle. Either way, the Giants need a solid complementary bookmark for Flowers. Newcomer D.J. Fluker isn’t the answer either. A former right tackle in San Diego, Fluker said he was signed to play right guard.

It’s been a rough couple of years for Josh Hamilton.

The former comeback success story, whose rebound from drug addict to MVP is in the process of being turned into a movie , suffered yet another injury setback Wednesday.

Hamilton “tweaked his left knee,” according to’s TR Sullivan . He Cheap Essendon Jerseys will head back to Texas for further examination.

The former All-Star has had surgery on that knee three times in the past two years, so news of another tweak can’t be welcome.

The Rangers were reportedly hoping to move Hamilton to first base after signing him to a minor league deal this offseason.

If this injury to his knee is serious, it’s fair to assume a fourth complication over such a short span could potentially put the 35-year-old’s career in jeopardy.

Fox interested in bringing Tony Romo into booth as analyst, report says

Everyone wants Tony Romo these days, even Fox Sports.

The longtime Cowboys quarterback tweeted his goodbye to the team Thursday amid speculation he would get traded or released this week. Neither of those things have happened, which has left some to believe Romo might retire.

Romo, who turns 37-years-old next month, is wanted by Fox to serve as an analyst in their booth, per Romo would replace John Lynch, who left to become the 49ers general manager in late January.

Last season Romo started the year by breaking his back during the preseason. He then watched rookie Dak Prescott take his place as the team’s starting quarterback.

Teams like the Texans, who just sent free-agent bust Brock Osweiler to the Browns, and the Broncos are believed to be the most interested in Romo’s services.

Should Romo retire and join the booth, he will do so as Dallas’ franchise leader in passing yards and touchdown passes.

This group isn’t flashy, but it’s more reliable than most. Crawford has always had an outstanding glove, and he has come into his own as a hitter the past few seasons. Belt, finally entrenched as the full-time first baseman, has produced WARs of 3.9 and 4.3 the past two years. Panik hit .309 his first two partial seasons in the majors (173 games total), but dipped to just .239 last year. His bounce-back Cheap Bike Jerseys will be key. Nunez had his best MLB season last year, combining for 16 homers and 40 stolen bases with the Twins and Giants. Can he repeat that? It’s a valid question.

For once, Jets resist urge to add to quarterback woes

The Jets went into the NFL Draft as living proof of an old adage: When you have too many quarterbacks, you have no quarterback.

Yet as the draft rolled on to the third day and the late rounds, the Jets kept picking, kept trading, kept moving around бн and kept taking everybody except quarterbacks. When they took their final player Saturday afternoon, they had stockpiled fifth- and sixth-round picks, filled needs in their secondary, got help with pass catchers бн but still had the same underwhelming people throwing to them.

Seattle’s final pick of the third round might have the most amazing back story of any player selected in the 2017 draft. Michigan receiver Amara Darboh was the 106th overall selection and the penultimate pick Friday, ending a long journey to get to the NFL.

A native of Sierra Leone, the 6-2, 215-pound Darboh emigrated to the U.S. at the age of 7 with his siblings after their parents were both killed during the Sierra Leone Cheap Goalie Jerseys Soccer Civil War. They settled in Iowa and Darboh earned a scholarship to Michigan, where he developed into a productive receiver. Darboh caught 151 passes for 2,062 yards and 14 touchdowns over his career, ending with 57 receptions for 862 yards and seven scores last season to earn All-Big Ten honors. He moves well in open space and is a smooth route runner. Darboh has an incredible work ethic to go with excellent size, though he does have some difficulty getting off press coverage.

NFL Draft 2017: BYU product Jamaal Williams powers up running game for Packers, Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers doesn’t need a consistent running game behind him for the Green Bay Packers to be successful.

Rodgers, however, should want that running game behind him as he enters his 10th season as the starting quarterback.

That’s the path back to a Super Bowl for the first time since 2010. Green Bay GM Ted Thompson obliged with a shrewd fourth-round pick of BYU running back Jamaal Williams on Saturday. He’s the power back this offense needs, wants and can use heading into the next run in 2017.

Green Bay will be in that Super Bowl contender conversation as long as Rodgers is quarterback. He proved that last year by leading Green Bay to an eight-game win streak between the regular-season and playoffs that pushed the Packers to the NFC championship game against Atlanta.

Peppers is a playmaker, and he could do it anywhere on the field. He had 72 tackles, 16 tackles for loss and four sacks while playing as an undersized linebacker at Michigan. He can play Cheap Barcelona Jerseys cornerback, nickel back and safety, and can add value in the return game. Peppers’ coverage skills will be the determining factor with this pick, and he’ll be propped up against Ohio State’s Malik Hooker, who went 10 picks earlier to the Colts.

The disclaimer is always included: Workouts are voluntary, but …

It’s exhausting. It needs to stop. It sucks up energy that could be applied elsewhere (for example, why Mike Mularkey is still being trusted with a young, rebuilding, contending Titans team led by a prodigy like Marcus Mariota).
