As the great philosopher Taylor Swift once said, The haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.

And there’s no stronger, more intense — and more irrational — hater in all of sports than the Patriots hater. It’s next-level stuff.

Kids Joel Embiid Jersey Lillard, who turns 28 on July 15, requested the meeting in part to reaffirm his commitment to the only professional franchise he Jacob Josefson Authentic Jersey has ever suited up for, but also to gain assurances that the organization was just as devoted to expeditiously crafting a title-contending team, sources said.

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.

Costas’ absence has sports media observers wondering if comments he made about football at the University of Maryland in November is the reason why. During a roundtable discussion with several other national journalists, Costas painted a doom-and-gloom sort of picture for the sport, vis a vis head injuries.

Asked after the game about Brady’s performance, the Pats coach remarked that it’s not open-heart surgery we’re talking about. The real beauty? Belichick went from smiling on the sideline back to being sullen while wearing cut-off sleeves and staring blankly at reporters.

Can you just speak to the resourcefulness of Tom, dealing with that midweek and then coming out and having a huge game like that?

I think someone pitched Derek, and it just went into the script. I think Mike’s really good at not sweating the small stuff 锟斤拷 Derek Bortles made us laugh, so we just kept it in. Some shows might have broken off a splinter group to come up with 20 names funnier, but we just laughed at Derek Bortles and moved on.

Just in terms of comedy, yes. They’re my team now. I grew up a Vikings fan, so for me, the ultimate Super Bowl would be Vikings-Jags.

You’re known for using the internet to mess with people. Are you responsible for The Good Place Twitter account only following two accounts, which are the Jags and Bortles?

I gotta find out who does that and send them a Bortles jersey. I laughed so hard, I was like, that is perfect. It implies that Jason runs the social media for our show. That’s the best.

Oh, yeah, we’ll have to. I mean, we’re gonna have to shoot an entire season in Jacksonville or something. That’s so not my call to make, but I feel like nothing would be better than opening the first episode of Season 4 with Jason on a Super Bowl parade float, somehow being beamed down from wherever he is.

When the season kicked off in September, the Jaguars had attracted the fewest bets to win the Super Bowl of any team at multiple sportsbooks. There were more Super Bowl bets on the Cleveland Browns than the Jaguars, and twice as many at some places.

Cleveland was eliminated from the playoffs after Week 12. At that point at William Hill’s 100-plus Nevada sportsbooks, there were still more bets on the Browns to win the Super Bowl than there were on the Jaguars.

Where does the betting value lie in Sunday’s NFC championship game? Our experts provide against-the-spread and over/under advice on Minnesota-Philadelphia.

Some might jump to conclusions regarding the betting public’s acumen, but veteran Las Vegas bookmaker Nick Bogdanovich says the interest in the Browns over the Jaguars likely has more to do with location and winter vacationing habits.

red_wings_008You’ll never see a coach be more disgusted with having to go through the showmanship of throwing the red flag than Belichick was right then and there. He’s appalled that he even has to go through such a motion.

Belichick and the Patriots are all robots that are only concerned with beating your team, and beating them by the widest margin. Unfortunately for the Patriots, it didn’t matter, because Corey Davis would get his second touchdown on the evening.

This was October 2013, midway through a rookie season during which Thielen lived in a cousin’s basement to save money. Friday was Red Zone Day at practice, his time to shine. Thielen had already spent half a lifetime emulating other pass catchers—mimicking Carter’s sideline toe touches while falling into bean bags as a kid; trying to snare passes at the high point of his jumps like Moss—so when he shredded Minnesota’s first-string secondary with yet another acrobatic, contested catch, he decided to top off his Cruz imitation by aping the New Yorker’s signature salsa dance.

NFL’s replay system is broken The phrase forward progress was trending during Saturday’s game after Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson sacked Mariota on a delayed blitz. The result was Johnson blasted Mariota as he stood in the pocket without any forward momentum. Johnson’s explosive hit jarred the ball loose and the Chiefs had a clear recovery, but referee Jeff Triplette blew the play dead because he said Mariota’s forward momentum had been stopped.

Norv Turner to interview for Panthers’ vacant offensive coordinator position, source says

Game Mens Fred Jackson Jersey
Panthers head coach Ron Rivera is giving strong consideration to hiring a longtime mentor as his new offensive coordinator.
Women's Majestic San Francisco Giants #41 Mark Melancon Replica White Fashion Cool Base MLB Jersey
A source told Sporting News that Turner will fly to Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday for an interview to replace Mike Shula, who was fired earlier in the day in the aftermath of Carolina’s first-round playoff loss to the Saints. Shula had served as offensive coordinator the past three seasons after being promoted from quarterbacks coach in 2015.

Turner and Rivera became close during the former’s time coaching the then-San Diego Chargers. Rivera served as linebackers coach in 2007 and defensive coordinator from 2008-10 before becoming Carolina’s head coach in 2011.

There’s an increased emphasis on player safety, but a lot of these injuries were unavoidable. It’s just part of the game. And since it can be such a big part of the game, you could argue that coaching is more important than ever. The teams that survive the season are the ones that run systems complex enough to produce but easy enough for backups to quickly pick up. They are systems that win through design as much as talent. And systems that have the right people teaching and coordinating them.

Then again, for most of the season, many of those teams have had the good fortune of avoiding injuries. The analyst in me hates to say this, but what stands out from 2017 is that a big part of Ben Bishop USA Jersey NFL success stems from having the good fortune to just stay healthy.

Third throw, third-and-10, Kansas City 29, 0:23 left. The play looked ugly from the start, two Raiders receivers flooding the same area inside the 10 on the way to the left pylon. Carr let it fly, and Cook skied above three others (two Chiefs, one Raider) in his area to come down with it, and he sprawled into the end zone a yard to the left of the pylon. Replay would show him down at the half-yard line. Unbelievable throw, Gannon said. The routes were run right; somebody got it wrong. But it’s right about that time you think he’s like Michael Jordan used to be at the end of games. You know, everybody get out of the way, get out of the lane. Let me handle this. Gain of 28.

Game Mens Shelby Harris Jersey Fourth throw, first-and-goal, Kansas City 2, 0:00 left (untimed down). After three accurately called penalties turned the final seven seconds on the clock into some Bizarro Football World event, Carr lined up in shotgun. Michael Crabtree was the key receiver to his left, Cooper to his right. We’d learn this later, but the Oakland offense had a roll-right red-zone play in the game plan, but not a roll-left here. Carr thought it bestI’m assuming because he trusted the physical Crabtree on lesser cover men than Marcus Peters on Carr’s right. Carr took the snap and rolled left. I was thinking when I saw that, ‘Oh no, what are they doing?’ Gannon said. The sprint-right option is such a better play for him. On a scale of difficulty going to the left, it’s so easy to miss that throw, because it’s not a throw you normally make. The throw was laid into Crabtree’s gut in the end zone, just beyond the left pylon. (Man, that pylon got a workout in the last 23 seconds.) The PAT gave Oakland a 31-30 win.

Mariota was forced on the run, scrambling one way and then the other, looking for any open receiver.
