In addition to Smith’s comments on Twitter, he released a written statement on Saturday morning.

The peaceful demonstrations by some of our players have generated a wide array of responses, Smith said. Those opinions are protected speech and a freedom that has been paid for by the sacrifice of men and women throughout history. This expression of speech has generated thoughtful discussions in our locker rooms and in board rooms. However, the line that marks the balance between the rights of every citizen in our great country gets crossed when someone is told to just ‘shut up and play.’

Tesfatsion: I just don’t know if Foster is that guy for the Redskins, though. I think he’s a really good talent and clearly a first rounder. He looks great running forward, but he just gets stuck on play-action situations. It takes him a second to process it. He’s just so athletic that he can make up ground with his speed, but that’s a concern for me as a 3-4 inside linebacker at the next level. I’d take Reddick over Foster any day of the week. Adoree’ is an interesting player, but would you take him with the 17th pick, or trade back and get him later?

Then, on Sunday, one of the NFL’s biggest stars delivered what might be the ugliest hit of the season when Rob Gronkowski slammed an unsuspecting Tre’Davious White, who was already face down on the turf after he intercepted a Tom Brady pass. Jamaal Williams Youth jersey Gronk’s hit sent White into concussion protocol and resulted in a one-game suspension that the New England Patriots tight end is appealing.

Game Youth Vincent Jackson Jersey At that point, Madsen did note that the Rockets were actually among the offenses with a higher spread on their offensive output. That’s no longer the case. As part of a Twitter thread Friday, Madsen pointed out this season Houston actually has the lowest variability of any NBA team (as measured by median absolute deviation, which gives less weight to outliers than the more common standard deviation).

I think so, he said. I think at times matchup based, it’s tough — a lot of matchups on the floor — but they respond. Not giving up on us and we’re not giving up on them, so, that’s not a problem at all. That wouldn’t be the case.

James said it falls on him to find a way to turn around the season.

I can’t break, he said. I’m the last one that can break at this point. I’m the leader of this team. Hopefully we can get some wins, and that definitely helps, but I’m going to stay as positive as I can be. You guys know me, patience is not always been a thing for me, but knowing the rough patch that we’re in right now, that’s what I’m going to give to this team. Just stay positive.

Magic host Kings, aim for 2nd straight win

During this skid, Sacramento is averaging 99.3 points, shooting 44.8 percent, including 38 percent from 3-point range. Defensively, the Kings are allowing 110.8 points and opponents to shoot 48.8 percent.

Sacramento’s skid continued with Monday’s 112-107 loss at Charlotte. The Kings trailed by 17 after the third quarter after allowing the Hornets to shoot 50.8 percent and make 15 of 30 3-pointers but they outscored Charlotte by 12 in the final 12 minutes.

Paul Perkins Elite Jersey The teams are meeting in Orlando for the first time since the Magic posted a 102-94 win on Nov. 3, 2016. Of the 10 players to appear in that game for Sacramento, only Kosta Koufos, Cauley-Stein and Temple remain on the team.

The Jets, meanwhile, will probably struggle out of the gate. Starting quarterback Josh McCown produced a below-average passer rating in 2016 (72.3) and will have two starting receivers with little experience in the NFL. Charone Peake caught 19 of 35 targets for 186 yards in 2016 and Robby Anderson caught 42 of 78 targets for 587 yards and two touchdowns last season.

McCown did show a little chemistry with those two during the preseason, completing three of seven passes for 62 yards and a touchdown, but it is going to take more than that to win the Jets’ first season opener against a division rival since 2008.

The Jazz drove to the basket at will in the first half, shooting 62.5 percent en route to a 76-59 halftime lead. They began the night ranked 26th in the league in points per game.

Honestly, we just didn’t have it, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. They played a lot harder than us, which I rarely say. They played desperate.

We didn’t handle their Greg Robinson Jersey pressure. They pressured us in the first half. Second half, we were much better. But in the first half, I just didn’t think we were ready for the intensity that they were going to bring.

Just moving the basketball, Walker said. Whenever you have an open shot just being aggressive and making them. We’re all creating for each other to get the best shots possible and whenever we did we just knocked them in tonight.

Vikings looking to trademark ‘Minneapolis Miracle’ after win against Saints

The reality is that this game destroys people’s brains, Costas said during the discussion, per USA Today.

The star running back reportedly skipped all but the last five minutes of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ final walk-through before their home loss to the Jaguars in the divisional round, per Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Bouchette also noted that Bell, among others, repeatedly ignored head coach Mike Tomlin’s rule that players and coaches report to the stadium no later than two hours before game time. Bell’s tardiness and commitment will surely be talking points as the two sides begin negotiations.

Bell, who is coming off one of his best seasons as a pro with 1,946 scrimmage yards and 11 total touchdowns, is set to become a free agent after playing 2017 on the franchise tag, which netted him $12.1 million. He has been adamant about signing a long-term deal, and has threatened to sit out 2018 or even retire if the team places the tag on him again.

According to NFL Network, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie interviewed two minority candidates — Oakland tight ends coach Bobby Johnson and USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin — before settling on Gruden.

Yet the Raiders’ intense interest and quick signing of Gruden earlier this month to a deal reportedly worth $100 million over 10 years had led some observers to wonder if the team had complied with the Rooney Rule.

The Fritz Pollard Alliance, a group that promotes diversity among NFL executives and coaches, asked the league last week to investigate the Raiders’ actions. The group issued a statement Friday, saying it strongly disagrees with the NFL’s ruling. patriots_121_3ffec18d06c46d7e-180x180

the Giants officially named Pat Shurmur as their head coach on Monday.

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora had reported earlier this month that it was basically a done deal between Shurmur and the Giants and that the Vikings offensive coordinator would be hired as soon as Minnesota’s season came to an end, which happened on Sunday.

Although the NFC title game will be played in Philadelphia, there will be a lot of eyes on Minnesota this week, and that’s mainly because Super Bowl LII is being played in Minneapolis.

If the Vikings beat the Eagles on Sunday, they’ll become the first team in NFL history play a Super Bowl in their home stadium. The Vikings are playing in a conference title game for the 10th time in franchise history, but just the first time since 2009.

Finally, if you need Phil Simms Jersey proof that defense does actually win championships, we’ll leave you with this final stat. All four teams remaining in the postseason ranked in the top-five in scoring defense during the 2017 season.

The Tennessee Titans have agreed to a deal that will make Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel their next head coach, GM Jon Robinson and owner Amy Adams Strunk announced on Saturday.

And we haven’t even played our best ball yet, Campbell said. This defense is gifted.

Their best game came in that Week Five beating of the Steelers. Roethlisberger was picked off five times, but two of those were returned for touchdowns. He was late and off-target with some of his throws and the Jaguars seemed to fool him with some of their coverage looks.

That’s why Roethlisberger talked of another shot last week before the Jaguars beat the Bills to earn it.

We don’t care what he’s thinking, Jaguars corner A.J. Bouye said. There’s no need for more talking. They’re in our way and we’re in their way. That’s pretty much it.

The Bills’ 2017 season crashed back to earth Sunday, breaking through the atmosphere over northern Florida and landing with a dull thud.

Buffalo overachieved en route to its first playoff appearance since January 2000, but ultimately couldn’t make the plays necessary to outgun a powerful Jaguars defense in a 10-3 Wild Card Round loss.

While the season ended in disappointment, it was still a tremendous ride. The Bills ran out to a 5-2 start that put them briefly atop the AFC East, then recovered from a midseason swoon to end the league’s longest postseason drought. Here are the top moments from Buffalo’s affirming nine-win 2017.

Taylor isn’t going to deliver prolific passing performances or lead his team back from a three-touchdown deficit through the air. Instead, he’s going to protect the ball, make the throws he’s confident in, and provide just enough air cover to prevent opponents from getting comfortable or loading up the box to stop the run. The two-time Pro Bowler 锟斤拷 which, in fairness, is more a reflection of the Pro Bowl’s lack of willing participants than Taylor’s mastery 锟斤拷 was responsible for more than 210 yards per game but lost the ball only seven times thanks to three fumbles and four interceptions.

More importantly, he won games. Taylor went 8-6 as a starter this fall, improving his career record to 22-20. That’s a solid number for a passer at any franchise 锟斤拷 doing it with one coming off a 17-year playoff drought is even more impressive.

The American Forces Network will broadcast the NFL’s conference championship games on Sunday despite the federal government shutdown.

There was some question about access to the games for the U.S. military after the AFN put a message on its Facebook page on Saturday that its services would not be available because of the shutdown. The network airs American radio and television programming in Europe and other locations outside the U.S.

Limited Kids Dak Prescott Jersey AFN programming relies on civilian government employees, according to Department of Defense spokeswoman Dana W. White, and they were furloughed at midnight Saturday. Two of Greg Bird Youth jersey AFN’s eight channels — one for news and a second for sports — will remain on.

I was curious to what he thought about all this.Palmeiro tested positive for PEDs once.

Why doesn’t Bell want the franchise tag? The issue players have with the franchise tag is that it offers big pay for a single season but doesn’t give players the opportunity to lock down a long-term deal while their value is at its peak.

That kick would prove vital in a game that was tied at the end of regulation, one that Georgia would go on to win in overtime to advance to the national championship game. What was wild about the kick was that, according to Georgia special teams coach Shane Beamer (of course the Georgia special team coach is named Shane Beamer), 55 yards was outside the range they had discussed before the game.

red_wings_009And they made life a lot easier for Foles by interfering with his receivers consistently. The Falcons had two pass interference calls for 63 total yards in the first quarter alone, including this one on the first play of the Eagles’ first possession.

“It was cool, man,” McVay said late Wednesday night. “It’s as special as anything I’ve ever gotten from a player. It says, ‘I owe you my career.’ Which … Certainly, I can say the same thing to him. There’s a mutual respect there, and an appreciation for the relationship we had, and I think it was unique that both of us got the chances we got.

“You get a chance as a coordinator to start calling plays and then he gets the shot to start full-time. That coincided those two years, and I think there was a special bond created with one another because of that.”

So far, so good, based on what we saw in the opener. Jared Goff finished his first game under the Rams’ 31-year-old coach with 306 yards, a touchdown and no picks on 21-of-29 passing in a 46-9 rout of the Colts.

Marrone apparently learned his lesson and was a little quicker to throw his challenge flag later in the second half when he challenged that a Bills receiver was out of bounds before making a crucial first-down reception. It worked out for the Jaguars and helped force a punt.

It hasn’t been the best weekend for NFL officials, who received plenty of criticism for their handling of a few situations Saturday. But the play ultimately cost the Jaguars just five yards with the defense able to force a punt a few plays later.

Williams turned around to celebrate—until he saw the panic in his friend’s face. “That f—– me up,” he says. “I’m watching the trainers pinch him. They’re not really telling him they’re pinching him, and they’re just pinching the s— out of him.”

But Newton was a marvel in the fourth quarter Sunday; he threw for nearly half of his 349 yards (174) and both of his touchdowns. It was frantic, it was desperate, it was another high-wire act.

Says McDonough: Each of us is here to do something, and I really believe he was born to coach. And as I said in that meeting Friday. ‘You won the Super Bowl twice, on the field and in our profession. It doesn’t get much higher in broadcasting than the chance to do Monday Night Football. He’s gone to the mountaintop twice, but his passion is coaching.

McDonough says his hope for Gruden in his next career is that he keeps his word and tries to build stronger relationships with players rather than locking himself in a film room in a constant effort to draw up the next great play. He told me he was determined to have fun, McDonough says, and I hope he does that.

Since retiring after the 2015 season, Peyton Manning has been a busy man in front of cameras, most notably appearing in Nationwide commercials. Could he be the man to replace Gruden on ESPN?

According to the oddsmakers at OddShark, Manning is the favorite to become the color man alongside play-by-play announcer Sean McDonough.

SMU’s best defender who had a tremendous senior season, Lawler has been a force over the last two years. An ideally built pass-rushing defensive end, he engages on the perimeter with great strength, converting speed to power easily and consistently winning on isolation situations.

Lawler offers outstanding strength and can bend to finish on the perimeter. He’s a bit one-dimensional as a pass rusher as of now and hasn’t shown much flexibility in space, but he should be a quality 4-3 defensive end prospect.

His 313.5 yards per start would also be No. 1. When looking back at his 2-0 stint for the Patriots while Brady was suspended, Garoppolo’s current play looks eerily similar to what it was more than a year ago.
