In the letter, Carruth said he wishes he could go back to 1999 and do things differently.

If I could change anything, I’d change the whole situation, he wrote. His mother would still be here and I wouldn’t be where I’m at. So that’s what I’d want to change. I want the incident to never have happened at all.

Carruth, 44, told WBTV that he has changed a lot since the Panthers selected him in the first round of the 1997 draft out of Colorado. He noted back then he was very self-centered and immature.

Press Taylor, who served as the Eagles’ assistant quarterbacks/offensive quality control coach last season, is being elevated to quarterbacks coach to replace John DeFilippo, now offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings.

Pederson, who calls the plays for the Super Bowl-champion Eagles, was considering keeping the offensive coordinator position open after Frank Reich left to become head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. Pederson ultimately decided on having an OC, believing it best to have someone in that position, given all of his own day-to-day responsibilities.

Groh, 46, joined the Eagles this past offseason and gained immediate command of the wide receivers room. Alshon Jeffery responded to him — as he did in Chicago — and scored 12 touchdowns in the regular season and playoffs combined. Groh’s work with Nelson Agholor was the most noticeable. Agholor went from a bubble player to a formidable slot receiver, scoring eight touchdowns in the regular season.

Greg Schiano has made some waves in the media this offseason, but it was the move he didn’t end up making to Tennessee which really got people’s attention.

Now, he is once again upsetting the apple cart in his latest decision.

Multiple reports came out in the last couple of weeks saying Schiano was going to take over as the Patriots’ defensive coordinator as Matt Patricia was expected to take the head coaching job with the Lions.

“We approached football as being a microcosm of life,” Long told co-host Gil Brandt and me Tuesday night on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “We learn to deal with working with people they don’t like. They learned to work hard, not just on the football field but in the classroom. You learn to deal with disappointment if you’re not a starter or you get injured or lose a game. You learn to deal with success when you win.

“That’s kind of the foundation of our program. Ihonestly say Nick epitomized that.”

Michael, 39, had spent the previous two seasons as the Titans’ quarterbacks coach after serving as their offensive coordinator in 2014 and 2015. He previously served as tight ends coach with the Chargers (2011-13), Titans (2008) and Jets (2007).

Michael began his NFL coaching career as a quality control coordinator with the Raiders in 2005. He held the same position with the Jets in 2006 and was New York’s quarterbacks coach that year, as well. He was an offensive assistant with the 49ers in 2009 and 2010.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Michael had declined an offer to replace the retired Steve Loney with the Cowboys.

Foles did more than “get by” when becoming Westlake’s starting QB as a junior. By the time his Westlake career was completed, Foles had broken school records for passing yards (5,658) and touchdowns (56) set a decade earlier by Drew Brees.

That gives the Chaparrals bragging rights about having two Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks. And the comparisons don’t end there.

This controversy was not left behind by the Giants as they arrived in England for Sunday’s game against the Rams.

The main reason why Brown was given a seemingly light one-game suspension by the league this summer 锟斤拷 and why the Giants decided to stick with him 锟斤拷 is the NFL’s insistence as recently as Thursday that it could not garner the required information about the May 2015 charge of domestic violence that was dismissed five days later. The league said law enforcement officials in the state of Washington refused to cooperate with the investigation into Brown’s domestic abuse history. Well, that reasoning is faulty, according to someone who would know.

Still, Bennett remained firm that a person who is qualified to be an NFL quarterback but has been deemed too hot to touch must be given a fair shake before the players and owners can agree on The Star-Spangled Banner.

NFL’s opening night was a TV ratings disaster

Elite Bob Gainey Jersey The ratings tumble on Thursday is sure to continue the years-long debate over whether the NFL’s ability to draw young male viewers is on a long, cyclical decline.

Dawkins spent most of his 16-year career in Philadelphia, earning five first-team Billy Smith Jersey All-Pro selections. He became the first player in NFL history with a sack, interception, fumble recovery and touchdown catch in the same game against Houston in 2002.

Five offensive linemen were among the 15 finalists, with tackle Joe Jacoby getting eliminated in voting that reduced the candidates to 10, and tackle Tony Boselli, guards Alan Faneca and Steve Hutchinson, and former Jets center Kevin Mawae getting cut in the next round of voting.

This came on the heels of the Raiders surprisingly firing Jack Del Rio — Del Rio was just a year removed from a 12-win season that earned him a contract extension. It’s likely the only scenario in which he’s fired is if Gruden is willing to leave the booth and come back to Oakland, where he was the coach from 1998-2001 before being traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson brought his team on the field before Sunday night’s NFC Championship Game while carrying the jersey of his injured All-Pro teammate Jason Peters. The emotional moment was at once a reminder of the players missing from this stout Philadelphia squad and a signal by an underestimated team which was hiding in plain sight all along. The linemen led the way.

NFL’s answer to its suspension problem

Limited Mens Corey Knebel Jersey A trio of suspensions from this past week have sparked more outrage about the lack of consistency with NFL discipline.
Authentic Men's Joe Montana Red Home Jersey: NFL Mitchell and Ness Kansas City Chiefs #19 75th Patch Throwback
The NFL has a plan 锟斤拷 to consider a plan, that might help.

Troy Vincent, executive vice president of football operations for the NFL, announced Wednesday that the league will consider a targeting rule and re-examine how non-football acts are punished. The non-football acts part of this is in response to Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski being suspended for one game after a brutal hit on Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White that was egregiously and amittedly late.

There was some outrage at the lack of severity for Gronkowski’s actions, especially after the NFL had announced two-game suspensions for Michael Crabtree and Aqib Talib (before both were reduced to one on appeal). Then came a pair of nasty hits in the Bengals-Steelers game on Monday Night Football.

Frustration with inconsistency in the NFL discipline system has been a key theme throughout Roger Goodell’s tenure as commissioner, whether it is for incidents that occur on or off the field.

No doubt about it, said Riveron, who made the overturn from New York on Sunday. It was clear and obvious. We use that for every replay. Unless it is clear and obvious to us, we will not change the ruling on the field. This definitely met that criteria.

As for the Jets, the message from Todd Bowles was clear: Move on.

They’re not changing the call, Bowles said. We’re not winning the ballgame. We have moved on from that. I don’t really give two shakes about it.

Bowles emphasized that his attention was now on this week’s opponent, the Dolphins.

It wasn’t the reason we lost the game, Bowles said. We’ve moved on from that. It’s not changing. We’re not going to cry about it all week. We have to go play Miami.

Ben Roethlisberger openly contemplated retirement last offseason.

Pittsburgh Steelers: The Steelers’ offense has oddly malfunctioned through six weeks. It’s hard to envision them making a change, but the signs are evident.

New Orleans Saints: Drew Brees is synonymous with the Saints, and so far this season, he’s still playing at an elite level. But he’s also 38, and this offseason the Saints can get out of his contract at minimal cost. The Saints have been mediocre for years, surrounding the incredible Brees with a shoddy roster. Now might be the time to truly start over.

Making the first road start of his career in a tough venue in Baltimore, DeShone Kizer struggled early in the first half before being forced from the game with migraines. With Kizer out, Kevin Hogan entered the game for the Browns and took the offense 84 yards down the field in five plays for a touchdown.

Philadelphia also needs to stick more with Jay Ajayi, who got only 15 carries in relation to nine for LeGarrette Blount against Atlanta. Ajayi is the more effective back, inside and outside. Blount will be stuffed even worse against a Vikings front that can swarm his deliberate running style. Contrary to popular belief, Ajayi is better built than Blount to get the tough yards between the tackles when not much is there.

It’s a no-brainer for the Eagles to run more to the right behind center Jason Kelce, guard Brandon Brooks and tackle Lane Johnson. That also means going away from Everson Griffen and Linval Joseph, where Brooks can dominate Tom Johnson and Lane Johnson can get the better of Danielle Hunter.

That two-tiered personnel plan will give the Eagles the best chance to have viability on the ground. But it will have limited success unless Foles can open up the passing game.

It also could have been interpreted as a vote of confidence in the performance of Blandino, who had earned respect in most teams’ front offices for the manner in which he did a very demanding job.

Gronk may still have to face the wrath of his coach.

Gronk tries to get as close as he can to use his size, but the refs, they throw a lot of flags on him.

Bill Belichick wasn’t happy when Gronk celebrated a touchdown a week ago by giving a smaller teammate a piggyback ride. Imagine how he’ll feel about this. He gave a brief window into his thinking when he apologized to Bills Coach Sean McDermott on the field after the game, calling it bull[crap] and adding, I’m sorry. I apologize.

Honestly, there’s not too many plays that are intended for the fullback, Bohanon said with a laugh. If I could get the Mike (linebacker) to bite up even a little bit, I was going to be wide open over the middle because we kind of knew what (coverage) they were going to be in.

Texans: They basically had to give Osweiler away and had to sweeten the deal to accomplish even that, an embarrassing acknowledgment that last year’s signing was a total bust. If the Texans don’t follow up by getting Romo, the quarterback situation could remain a mess.

Brock Osweiler: He still has the money. But his NFL legacy, at this point, is that his signing by the Texans ranks with the Redskins’ signing of Albert Haynesworth as the most ill-fated free agent deals in recent memory.

The Jaguars would be severe underdogs against New England, of course, and against most teams, Pittsburgh would be the tougher matchup. But the Jaguars’ strengths align perfectly with the best way to give yourself a chance to beat New England. Even acknowledging the implausibility of Bortles winning in New England, Jacksonville would have a better shot to scare the Patriots.

NFL says Raiders complied with Rooney Rule, Fritz Pollard alliance ‘strongly disagrees’

The Raiders satisfied the NFL’s so-called Rooney Rule before hiring head coach Jon Gruden, the league told NFL Network Friday.

The rule, which has been in place since 2003, requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate before filling senior football operations positions. It’s named after Dan Rooney, the late Steelers owner who led efforts to enact the rule to bring more minorities into the NFL coaching and executive ranks.

Raiders owner Mark Davis implied at Gruden’s introductory news conference that Davis had all but decided on hiring Gruden after they met Christmas Eve, while Jack Del Rio was still the coach.

The league takes compliance with the Rooney Rule very seriously. In 2003, the NFL fined the Lions $200,000 for hiring former 49ers head coach Steve Mariucci without first interviewing a minority candidate.

The Vikings pulled off what many consider to be a miracle in last weekend’s divisional playoff game against the Saints, and now the team wants to make sure they are remembered for it.

The Vikings play the Eagles on Sunday with kickoff set for 6:40 p.m. ET with the chance to play in the Super Bowl on the line.
