Seahawks Michael Bennett blows up at reporter after loss to Falcons

Elite Youth Randy Johnson Jersey Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett lit into a reporter for suggesting Seattle wasnt able to generate an effective pass rush against Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan during Saturdays NFC divisional playoff game in Atlanta.

Ryan was sacked three times by Seattle, including once by Bennett, but completed 26 of 37 pass attempts for 338 yards and three touchdowns in Atlantas 36-20 win.

‘That speech was a home run,’ Trump told ABC News, referring to a recent address to the Central Intelligence Agency. ‘See what Fox said. They said it was one of the great speeches. They showed the people applauding and screaming. I got a standing ovation. In fact, they said it was the biggest standing ovation since Peyton Manning had won the Super Bowl, and they said it was equal. I got a standing ovation. It lasted for a long period of time.’

By the way, Manning is scheduled to speak before Trump and other Republicans during a joint Senate-House GOP retreat this week in Philadelphia.

As for the CIA speech, the Washington Post described it as meandering, falsehood-filled, self-involved.

Mark Ingram has proven to be a solid running back for the current Drew Brees era, but it may be time for the Saints to start transitioning their offense for the future. They won’t be able to find another Brees, but they can start to make their offense more run-first with Fournette. The New Orleans native is a perfect fit to take up the Saints mantle.

Elite Daniel Sorensen Jersey After adding to their pass-rush with their first pick, the Browns can add talent to their secondary with Conley. While he likely will not be the second best corner in this class based on his film, Conley’s upside is as high as any in this class, and he’d be a perfect fit for the Browns’ focus at the position.

Jadeveon Clowney towers over Randy Moss in viral photo

Davis Webb Kids Jersey Jadeveon Clowney is a massive human, but the Texans’ defensive endlooked even larger than normalin a photo that has now gone viral. The picture shows the 6’6” NFL star towering over Randy Moss and the rest of ESPN’screw, after Houston’s AFC Wild Card win over the Raiders.

Authentic Youth Tim Thomas Jersey I think a lot of those things are specifics that we’ve got to get to the point where the final strokes, I would say, as we get our head coach in order and all of those things. I can tell you that from the outset, what has been communicated to me is that we really want this to be a true partnership. Jed’s communicated that. Paraag has communicated that. That’s my wish.

One of the great things, and I spoke earlier, and this doesn’t ensure you success, but I can tell you, one thing from being a broadcaster, you get invited into people’s buildings and like I said, this wasn’t like I’m sitting in there taking notes, stealing institutional knowledge. But, you do sit down with head coaches. You talk with management in the places you are. And I think the one common denominator that I’ve seen when I talk to folks, in places where they have successful cultures and results, everyone’s working in the same direction. In places that are inconsistent or are consistently poor franchises, you can see it because you can feel it because people from one side are coming up and saying, Hey, if I had any players, we could get this thing going. Management is saying, Hey, if we had some guys coaching these guys.

Yankees take shots at ‘The Team in Second Place’ on Instagram

Arian Foster Jersey
This was a pivotal series for the Boston Red Sox. Coming into their three-game series with the New York Yankees this week, the Sox were 31-25 and just two games back of the Bronx Bombers in the American League East standings.

Musgrove will be activated Monday to start that night against the Rangers, the team said, but it remains unclear who will step into McCullers’ rotation spot Tuesday. The Astros are running out of options, with Mike Fiers the last man standing from the opening day rotation.

Not that anyone can just be penciled in to replace the likes of Keuchel and McCullers, as the Astros have seen. Houston enters Monday’s game having lost four of its last six on the heels of an 11-game winning streak. Its pitchers surrendered 37 runs across those four losses, culminating in a 12-6 beatdown of starter David Paulino and several relievers by the Angels on Sunday.
Alex Smith Jersey
McCullers has a 2.58 ERA in 13 starts this season, with 89 strikeouts in 76 2/3 innings. The 23-year-old saw his 2016 start late and end early due to shoulder and elbow injuries, respectively, so Houston isn’t inclined to push him too hard now, especially while sitting on a 12-game lead in the AL West.

Oh, yeah. Just a smooth, powerful left-handed swing. He’s not going to steal any bases, he’s not fleet of foot. He’s a first baseman or a DH. I don’t think you put him in the outfield, ala Justin Bour. But what a bat. My goodness, what a bat. So if he couldn’t pitch, he’d be in the conversation for the No. 1 pick because of his bat. If he couldn’t hit, he’d be in the conversation for the No. 1 pick because of his arm. And, he’s a college player who’s proven himself for three years.

Leonard Fournette: Sitting out Citrus Bowl ‘wasn’t my decision’

Former LSU running back Leonard Fournette sparked a heated debate during the college football bowl season when he announced he wouldn’t play in the team’s Dec. 31 Citrus Bowl matchup against Louisville:

Are players who do this letting their team down? Should they consider their financial future in the NFL? Will pro teams look at their decision negatively?

Well, Fournette provided another talking point for the discussion on Friday when he told NFL Now Live that it wasn’t his choice to sit out the bowl game.

“You can’t test for CTE unless you’re dead,” he added before mentioning that former Chargers linebacker Junior Seau committed suicide in 2012 but was later diagnosed with CTE.

“Junior Seau, what caused him one day to put a shot gun to his chest and pull the trigger?” Wycheck asked. “As former players, you’re like, ‘When is that going to happen to me?’ Is there a special pill I can take? Do I eat carrots? What do I do to prevent perhaps what is inevitable? That’s a stress that is on your mind daily.”

Even with the knowledge he now has on the dangers of football, Wycheck said he “wouldn’t change a thing” because “that’s the price you pay.”

The first sack was shared by Damontre Moore and Jarran Reed, who got a good inside push as he blew up Mason. The second came from a great individual effort by Frank Clark, who reached around Solder to yank Brady down with one hand.

The Ravens sacked Brady once and hit him seven times. The lone sack came on a safety blitz from Eric Weddle, who knocked running back Dion Lewis into Brady before dropping the quarterback.

I used to dream about pizza sauce cause I working there all the time.

“I’m thinking about it. I’m day to day. I’d have to answer that like Ben [Roethlisberger] said. I have to talk with my family, see what options I have out there. There’s a lot of things in play in to me coming back. I hope there’s a lot of job opportunities for me out there. I could say, ‘I’m coming back’ and then not be signed by a team, and then be forced to retire. So I’m not going to put the cart before the horse. I’m going to try and find a cart for the horse.”

“In the offseason, you kind of push aside your eating habits, in terms of eating healthy or clean, for like a week or two, and it’s pizza pizza pizza, man.

“I used to dream about pizza sauce. I used to dream about pizza sauce cause I working there all the time.”

Philip Rivers is 35 and showed some clear signs of regression in 2016, including a career-worst 21 interceptions. Both new coach Anthony Lynn (Tyrod Taylor) and returning offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt (Marcus Mariota) did not get enough time to work with an athletic, young passer on other teams.

Watson makes sense as a good grooming project who may be starting as early as 2018. Playing behind Rivers would give the Clemson product time to iron out the kinks in his game, and it also would allow Lynn to establish a more run-effective approach with Melvin Gordon.

Elite Womens William Jackson Jersey Vick again referenced what he considers his “rock bottom” — April 26, 2008, the day he learned his grandmother had suffered a stroke, then soon after learned the Falcons had drafted Matt Ryan with the third overall pick in the draft. Vick considers that the day he “lost Atlanta.”

Eric Berry ‘definitely not’ playing under franchise tag for Chiefs in 2017

Wayne Chrebet Elite Jersey
Eric Berry remains loyal to the Chiefs, but only if they are able to sign him to a long-term contract.

The star safety is fully prepared to re-sign with Kansas City this offseason, but he will not do so under the franchise tag.

Youth Marquise Goodwin Jersey I’m definitely not going to play under the franchise tag this year, Berry said, via NFL.com. I want to end my career in Kansas City. I want to play there. I love the city, I love the vibe, I love my teammates. I really look at them more than teammates. We’ve been through a lot and they supported me a lot. And the organization.

Lada Gaga will perform the Super Bowl 51 halftime show, and many are expecting her to make a splash. Who knows what Gaga will do; some rumors swirled that she wanted to perform on the roof. Some expect her to make some sort of a political statement.

Get excited to see something that you haven’t seen before, Lady Gaga said during her media conference Wednesday. We’ve put everything that we could into the show.

Either way, Gaga will do her best to stay on the right side of history and join the list of the best performances of all time.

Here are the Top 5 shows that are etched in history forever.

Since the debut of his first album in 2007, he has placed 17 singles at No.1 and sold nearly eight million albums. His fifth studio album, Kill The Lights, is certified Platinum and has sold 3.5 million tracks with over 400 million streams.

Dallas Keuchel remains perfect as red-hot Astros rout Marlins

Game Youth Roberto Luongo Jersey Dallas Keuchel appears to be returning to his Cy Young form after a dismal 2016 season had the Astros re-evaluating the ceiling of their ace left-hander.

Keuchel became the first seven-game winner in the majors despite his shortest outing of the season Tuesday against the Marlins. With an eight-run lead, manager A.J. Hinch decided to pull the southpaw after the fifth inning.

Mike Trout led the Angels to a 12-5 win over the Mets by collecting two hits with two walks, two runs scored, a home run (14) and three RBIs. Trout, easily the best hitter in baseball, is now hitting .350 this season.

Stephen Strasburg outdueld Jaime Garcia to lead the Nationals to a 3-2 win over the Braves. Strasburg allowed two earned runs in 7 2/3 innings with just one walk and 11 strikeouts. He improved to 5-1 with a 3.28 ERA this season.

The Astros fell 8-6 to the Indians after starting pitcher Joe Musgrove was touched up for seven earned runs in just three innings. Currently fighting some pitching issues, Houston has now lost three straight games.

Erin Henderson Youth Jersey Rockies (28-17) at Phillies (15-26), 7:05 p.m. ET — After collecting his MLB-leading 19th save Sunday afternoon, closer Greg Holland and the red-hot Rockies head to Philadelphia to take on the Phillies. It’s been years — eight, exactly — since the Rockies have made the postseason, but they finally look primed for a run this year.

NFL approves rule to allow 2 players to return from injured reserve

NFL officials approved a new rule Tuesday that will double the number of players teams can bring back from injured reserve during the season. Franchises will have the opportunity to recall two players from the IR back to the active roster in 2017, allowing for greater roster flexibility for teams who lose multiple starters to injury early in the season.

The new rule modifies a 2012 reform that allowed teams to activate a single player from the IR once he’d spent at least eight weeks on the inactive list. Originally, these players had to be labeled as “designated to return” candidates at the time they were placed on IR — and the tag could only be used once. In 2016, a rule modification allowed teams to save that tag until a player was ready to take the field once more.

Andy Reid and Chiefs general manager John Dorsey are the ones who brought Smith in back in 2013. They wanted him then, and both are still in the same roles with Kansas City. And Smith recognizes that his age has to be a factor in their decision.

“I’m at a different place than the last time I dealt with something like this,” Smith said. “I get it. If any of us were the GMs, this is maybe the most important position in all of sports, and it would be crazy not to be stockpiling talent. You’d be nuts not to.”

Smith is going into his 13th season in the league, and his fifth with the Chiefs. He has never thrown more than eight interceptions in any season of his Kansas City tenure and has led the Chiefs to the postseason in three of those seasons.

Michael Floyd’s house arrest transferred to Minnesota

Minnesota turns to Murray to replace Peterson as its feature back. Murray, 27, led the Raiders last season with 788 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns on 195 carries. In 2015, he rushed for 1,066 yards on 266 carries.

Cleveland also got a second-round pick in 2018 out of this deal. There’s a good chance it cuts Osweiler, seeing it as a move to spend some major money under the salary cap to get another prospect. For Houston, it opens up a ton of cap space and creates quick relief from its bust of a 2016 signing. It opens the door to deal for Tony Romo.

The remainder of Vikings wide receiver Michael Floyd’s 96-day house arrest was transferred from Arizona to Minnesota this week, which means Floyd will be able to practice with his new team, according to multiple reports.
Mark Glowinski Kids Jersey
Floyd was arrested Dec. 12 in Arizona and eventually pleaded guilty to extreme DUI. He was sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days under house arrest. Floyd had not been able to leave Arizona since Feb. 17.

He will now carry out the remainder of his sentence in Minnesota.

Floyd, 27, signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Vikings last week that could pay him up to $6 million with incentives. He is still facing a potential suspension from the NFL.

Despite the house arrest, Floyd is expected to join the Vikings for organized team activities Tuesday, according to ESPN.com.

Now he sits changed, measured. He isn’t brash, not the way he was depicted as a party animal. All the things that made him a star in college football remain; the arm strength is there, the accuracy is there and the production in college football’s toughest conference is certainly there.
J’Marcus Webb Limited Jersey
Down but not out, Mauk still might have a way to realize his NFL dream, a dream to show what he is capable of between the lines of the gridiron and not the lines that are often associated with his name.

‘Jim Leyland: A Life in Baseball’ reminds us of the importance of human element in baseball

As baseball takes steps toward removing the now-infamous human element of the sport, Jim Leyland: A Life in Baseball reaffirms that there might not be anything more important than blood and guts in baseball.

Leyland, one of the most respected managers in baseball of the past 30 years, is featured in the latest edition of MLB Network Presents, and we’re given an incredibly in-depth look at just how important he was to every managing stop he made in The Show.

Authentic Womens Cody Wichmann Jersey With stats and analytics-based thinking running rampant across MLB today, the documentary reminds us of just how important it is to manage people — not just players — over the course of a season.

Meanwhile, those who said the rich, entitled jock really wasn’t sacrificing anything with his kneeling must be aware by now exactly what he sacrificed.
Andrew Adams Game Jersey
Until someone proves it wrong, he has sacrificed his NFL career. Teams find Manuel, Foles and Smith to be more reasonable options at what they’ve made clear is the most important position in their sport.

NFL teams are free to prove that wrong. So far, early in free agency, they haven’t.

Zack Greinke continued his renewed form this season by allowing just two runs in seven innings with seven strikeouts. He is now 3-2 this season with a 3.09 ERA.

Arizona (18-13) moved just a half-game behind Colorado (18-12) for the AL West lead with the win. If their pitching can hold up all season, this dangerous offense unit could get a crack at the postseason.
