    How Kemba Walker can help take the Knicks’ offense to the next level Bryce Gelman August 29, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit This offseason, the Knicks went out and signed 4-time All-Star Kemba Walker, and you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who was against this move. Getting such a high-volume scorer for just $9 million per year couldn’t possibly go wrong, right? In hindsight, yes. However, as the starting point guard the Knicks so desperately needed, there is added pressure for Walker to perform well. Coupled in with his recurring knee issues, and there’s real concern that Walker could hamper the play of the hard-nosed Knicks. Will His Knee Continue to Affect Him? Despite being the lowest-risk signing the Knicks made all offseason, Kemba Walker has the most boom or bust potential on the roster. The reason for this is due to the fact that no one truly knows how Walker’s knee will continue to hold up. According to him, there’s little reason to worry,...
    Katy Perry Says Her Life "Began" When Daughter Daisy Dove Was Born Hospital beds drying up as cases rise in several states; California professor sues to avoid vaccine: Latest COVID-19 updates © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad The Patriots had a glut of running backs, and the Rams had a rash of injuries at running back, and so when New England sent Sony Michel to Los Angeles, it wasn’t a big surprise. But it was a surprise to Michel himself. Michel told reporters today that he had no idea he might be traded, according to Greg Beacham of the Associated Press. Although Michel said the terminology he’s learning in the Rams’ offense is quite a bit different from that in New England’s offense, he’s ready to give them whatever they need. “I’m just going to try to be the best version of me,” he said. “Whatever they ask.” They may ask him to be the top ball carrier as soon as Week One. Sony Michel had no idea Patriots were...
    Sharon Stone to Get Zurich Festival’s “Golden Icon” Award Salesforce Stock Climbs on Outlook, Stock Futures Mixed, Eyeing Fed Summit © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Andrew Luck shocked the NFL when he retired from the Colts two years ago. But he hasn’t walked away from football altogether. Luck, who spends a lot of time in Colorado, recently contacted a coach at Summit High School in Frisco, Colorado, and asked if he could come out to practice. Summit head coach James Wagner was amazed by how involved Luck got when he showed up, even jumping in to play scout team quarterback. “The kids are all trying to get picks on Andrew so they could say that,” Wagner told the Summit Daily. “We almost had one.” Wagner said Luck, a four-time Pro Bowler, had no trouble relating to the teenage players. “That’s the great thing about football is it brings us all together and you have an even playing field, that common ground to be in that locker room and to...
    Getty Images A.J. Green runs a route during training camp on July 28, 2021. Arizona Cardinals wide receivers keep getting all the love from NFL Network’s Good Morning Football. Last week, Peter Schrager compared rookie WR Rondale Moore’s game to Wes Welker. Today, Nate Burleson predicted Arizona’s new-addition wideout A.J. Green to be the 2021 comeback player of the year. Don't call it a comeback. @nateburleson predicts @ajgreen_18 to be this year's Comeback Player of the Year on @gmfb pic.twitter.com/fB7Zowbwme — Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) August 25, 2021 Burleson said: “I feel like “A.J. Green Zone” will ball out. What’s the Green Zone? 40 and in. I’m talking about when they start sniffing that red zone, they’re going to be looking at Green. As you have Christian Kirk in the slot and you have DeAndre Hopkins and the legs of Kyler Murray, defenses are going to forget about how good A.J. Green is. If you’ve been paying attention to the headlines, what he’s been doing at practice, how he’s been training leading up to this season, he’s in the...
    Giants activate Kyle Rudolph off PUP list, what does he bring to the offense? Alexander Wilson August 25, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit One of the major benefits that tight end Kyle Rudolph brings to the New York Giants is his abilities in the red zone. The Giants ranked 31st last year in points scored per game with 17.5, and adding a big body for Daniel Jones to target in scoring positions is essential. The Giants’ red zone scoring percentage also ranked 31st in the league at 46.34%. Rudolph, who is one of the most dependable TEs in the NFL when it comes to catching the football, should offer a security blanket on short-yardage routes. Rudolph has only dropped one pass since the 2018 season, playing in 92 of 96 games. Impressively, 40 of Rudolph’s 48 career touchdowns came in the red zone, which points to an obvious injection of talent in an area the Giants desperately needed to upgrade. Thankfully, there is...
    Iggy Azalea Has a Pink Makeup Line With Lisa Vanderpump on Her ‘To-Do List’ Renovate Your Home for Under $10,000 — Here’s How The Indianapolis Colts are wondering if quarterback Carson Wentz will be back for Week 1, and if he'll feel the effects of missing almost all of training camp. The Jacksonville Jaguars look like a dumpster fire under Urban Meyer. The Houston Texans are even worse than that.  It's pretty good to be the Tennessee Titans these days.  While the rest of the division seemingly crashes and burns, the Titans are having a nice quiet preseason. They're looking pretty good heading into the season.  © Provided by Yahoo! Sports Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones was the team's big addition this offseason. (AP Photo/Jason Behnken) Titans win total: 9.5 A month ago, I wasn't excited for the Titans over at BetMGM.

    The 25 best episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 More 401(k) plans are adding Roth accounts — but investors aren’t following We're just two preseason weeks into the Urban Meyer experiment in Jacksonville, and it's already facing some issues. The Jaguars' starting offense has been nothing short of a disaster in the first two preseason games — and its struggles have become a punching bag for social media in the process. They were vastly outplayed in losses to the Browns and Saints, and Meyer is faced with the monumental task of making adjustments and fixing it heading into the regular season. "The starting offense, two weeks in a row … we're just struggling to get into some rhythm," Meyer said to reporters after the game. "We're not balanced right now." Granted, it's just the preseason, and Jacksonville is breaking in its rookie quarterback, Trevor Lawrence. However, the offense wasn't supposed to be the issue with this team. Or, at least, it wasn't supposed to be this big of a problem.  Yet to date, Meyer and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell have yet to figure out...

However, there are still plenty of injuries from around the league to worry about, and we learned about another one Monday afternoon, as Adam Schefter reported that A.J. Brown is "expected to be ready for the start of the regular season" despite a knee injury that has kept him out of practice recently.  That's framed as good news, but … we had no idea there was even a question about Brown's availability! He underwent surgery on both of his knees this offseason but was cleared at the start of training camp for...
    Coach Matt LaFleur has one simple request for Green Bay Packers fans. Basically, LaFleur wants them to do away with something that should have been done away with in, oh, 1994. That would be none other than "The Wave." When the Packers have the ball, LaFleur said, perhaps fans can refrain from partaking in that little slice of American sports history. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "We’re going to have some talks with some people in our building about how we can help educate our fans in certain situations," LaFleur told reporters. "But I love our fans, first and foremost. I think we have the best fans in the National Football League. The support they show when we’re at home, when we’re on the road, is second to none. So, I always want to start out with that before I become critical of them." LaFleur then made his request, oh so delicately. "But, certainly, when you’re on offense and it’s a third down situation, I’d rather not hear the ‘Go Pack Go’ chant and, when we’re on...
    Surprise! Scarlett Johansson, Colin Jost welcome baby boy Nvidia earnings top Street view with record data-center, gaming revenue © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad After the five games Dak Prescott played last season, the Cowboys ranked first in total offense. Prescott led the league in passing yards with 1,856. They ranked third in points scored. The Cowboys ended the season ranked 14th in total offense, including eighth in passing yards, and 20th in points after losing Prescott to a season-ending ankle injury. With Prescott back, the Cowboys again have lofty offensive goals. “In our first meeting, coach Kellen [Moore] said our No. 1 goal this year is to be the No. 1 offense,” running back Ezekiel Elliott said, via Schuyler Dixon of The Associated Press. The problem for the Cowboys is they have yet to have their entire starting offensive unit practice together. Receiver Amari Cooper missed the Oxnard portion of training camp while working his way back from ankle surgery, and Prescott missed a chunk of work with a...
    25 movies that definitely did not need a sequel 29 Stocks That Every Retiree Should Own Stop if you've heard this before: The Seattle Seahawks are going to change up their offense.  This time, it's all about tempo. New offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, over from the Los Angeles Rams, has promised to speed up the pace. You won't read many Seahawks stories from training camp without hearing about the new tempo of the offense.  Even if that's remotely true — and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll changed the offense at midseason last year, so nothing is permanent — then Russell Wilson will be the biggest beneficiary.  But don't forget his receivers, particularly Tyler Lockett.  Tyler Lockett could have a huge season You would probably feel good betting the over on any members of the Seahawks' passing game, but Lockett seems particularly appealing. Lockett's receiving total at BetMGM is 1,000.5.  Even if the Seahawks offense is the same as always, Lockett has a good chance to beat that total. If the Seahawks really are speeding up the pace, Lockett should blow...

Although not everyone wants to play with the absolute best offense. Some people prefer to play with a team that fits their play style.

    Getty Matthew Stafford is one of six quarterbacks who could top the 6,000-yard passing yardage mark in this 17-game season, one national analyst says. Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for more than 5,000 passing yards once in his career. That was 10 years ago with the Detroit Lions, when he was one of three signal-callers to top the 5K mark through the air. Now, in 2021 and with a 17-game schedule this time around, the league could witness history’s first 6,000-yard passer as ESPN’s Mike Clay wrote in his Monday morning insider feature. Clay mentioned six QB’s whose arm and offensive weaponry surrounding the signal-caller can make them a threat to not only shatter the 5,477 yards Peyton Manning threw in 2013, but top the 6K mark. Is one of them the newest QB for the Rams? Here’s what Clay says:Stafford Mentioned Among Six NamesYes Ram fans, the 33-year-old Stafford made the list of who is a potential 6,000-yard threat in 2021. Before diving into why, here was the six points Clay mentions that helps determine...
    Magnolia Network Renews 9 Series, Sets Expanded Fall Slate (Exclusive) Stocks open modestly lower after weak China data More and more NFL teams are looking to replicate the “Shanahan” offense. But they may not realize what makes it work—that starts with the teachers. About six years ago, on the heels of the Mad Men finale and a general renaissance of woodsy, bearded machismo, whiskey became cool again and most of the good vintage makes in the world were bought up. The thing about whiskey is that it must be aged to taste good, and, when it gets purchased en masse, the distillers can’t magically replicate the process of sitting the product in oak barrels for a decade or more, properly immersing the drink in its natural flavors, allowing it to bloom. There are shortcuts, but the product doesn’t often hold up and has to be called something else once it hits the shelf. Around the same time, something similar started happening with NFL offenses. And like with that ambered colored spirit, an offensive line coach must be properly aged...

Here’s how some are playing it © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Urban Meyer made his debut as an NFL coach on Saturday night, the first of at least 20 games to be played. How did he feel in his first game as a pro coach? “I felt great until I looked up and saw 85 yards at halftime,” Meyer told reporters after the game. Meyer is keenly aware of that fact. Beyond pointing out that they have one down and 19 to go at the outset of his postgame press conference, he mentioned the total numbers of games later in the session. “The newness to me is the length of the season,” Meyer said. “I keep hearing that over and over again. I’m learning.” His biggest concern for the first game of 20 centered on the offense. Specifically, on the way it...
    The Seahawks had their 17th NFL offense in 2020. 8th in scoring points. 16th in the Boss. 12th on the ground. According to Russell Wilson, all of this will be very high in 2021. “I think we could be the first offense in the NFL,” Quarterback told reporters Sunday. “I do not understand why we can not. We have what it takes. We are ready. We were good last year, but we could be even better. Then we added Gerald Everett, a real game maker and Will Disley. […] Our riders, Chris Carson shows what can be done. I think he is the best in his position, so we need to find ways to give him the ball. I think the most important thing for us is to pay attention to all the details, to be aggressive, to take every opportunity or run. With this aggressive mindset, tell yourself that every time you touch the ball, you are going to score. “ If summer is always a time of hope, Wilson goes a long way and everyone is so beautiful....
    The Yankees’ offense seems to boil down to the success of one player Alexander Wilson August 11, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit Up against the lowly Kansas City Royals, the New York Yankees have struggled to find their groove so far in the series. In the first game, they barely scratched out a win, losing the lead four times and eventually securing the victory in the 11th inning. In game two of the series, the Royals posted eight runs compared to the Yankees’ four, as starting pitcher Nester Cortes allowed five runs over 5.2 innings. However, the Yankees’ offense has struggled to get going ever since starting first baseman Anthony Rizzo contracted COVID-19. Rizzo has missed the last three games but is fighting his way back after making the decision to pass on the vaccine. Before general manager Brian Cashman acquired Rizzo from the Chicago Cubs, he was hitting .248 with 14 homers and 40 RBIs. Ever since making the transition to New York, the...

After a rocky start to the season at the plate, the Detroit Tigers enter Sunday’s clash with the Indians as the top offense in MLB since the beginning of July, and they get to face rookie Eli Morgan. Morgan has surrendered at least three runs in seven of his eight starts and has allowed 12 home runs in 37 ¹/₃ innings. That includes seven home runs in 16¹/₃ innings in four home starts, with an 8.82 home ERA. Tigers starter Tyler Alexander began the season in the bullpen, but recently got moved to the rotation. Detroit is 5-1 in his six starts, and he has allowed two runs or fewer in five of them.

    More On: new york giants Don’t blame Joe Judge for all these Giants retirements Giants WR hopes extra work with Daniel Jones leads to roster spot Third Giants player retires in bizarre week Daniel Jones has done one thing Jason Garrett never did in NFL Observations from Giants practice on Friday. Fighting Word The Giants avoided another brawl and Joe Judge-ordered punitive laps and push-ups. When fiery safety Madre Harper threw receiver C.J. Board to the ground, the two jawed back and forth, but cooler heads prevailed before it escalated. Message received. Picking Them Clean Daniel Jones was intercepted twice, and backup QBs Mike Glennon and Clayton Thorson were picked off once each. All four came during 11-on-11 periods, in an overall poor day by the offense. The offensive line also was plagued by penalties in the team periods. Caught My Eye The Giants are using a three-man rotation at tackle — similar to last season during regular-season games — as a way to manage the reps for Andrew Thomas after offseason ankle surgery. Nate Solder and Matt Peart...
    Getty Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods celebrate a touchdown during their 2018 game against the L.A. Chargers. The Rams' duo and DeSean Jackson were labeled a top three receiving trio by Bleacher Report on Thursday. Last season, NFL teams operated with three wide receiver sets 60% of the time according to Warren Sharp of Sharp Football, including the Los Angeles Rams at 65%. But with a new quarterback and new addition to the receiving core comes heightened expectations for the aerial attack – one that now lists the Rams as having the league’s third best WR trio this season per Bleacher Report on Thursday. Brent Sobleski of B/R placed the Rams at No. 3 ahead of the Tennessee Titans’ trio of Julio Jones, A.J.

    What can the New York Jets expect from Zach Wilson in his rookie season? Olivier Dumont August 6, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Jets have had some rough seasons over the last 20 years. Whether their final record has been 4-12, 5-11, or 6-10, the Jets have struggled to put together a sustainable level of success and have faced several disappointing finishes along the way. However, last year the Jets hit a new all-time low that this franchise hasn’t endured since its nightmare 1-15, 1996 season, illustrating a level of despair and ineptitude that many of their young fans have never experienced before. Finishing 2020 with a dismal 2-14 record, the Jets ended up having to offload most of their core talent midseason to free up cap space, and in the process, began their next rebuild endeavor by securing the 2nd overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Though the Jets might have missed out on selecting wonder kid Trevor Lawrence at...
    Tennessee Titans safety Kevin Byard used to set a lot of individual goals, but as the All-Pro enters his sixth NFL season, he says his focus has shifted to winning football games and being the best leader that he can possibly be for his team. "If that’s catching 10 interceptions, catching five, catching one, catching none. As long as we are winning ball games, that’s all that matters," Byard told Fox News in a recent interview. "I just want to win a Super Bowl, honestly. That’s my goal." CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Last season, Byard piled up a career-high 111 total tackles with one interception for a Titans team that finished with an 11-5 record and as champions of the AFC South. Despite their success, the Titans’ defense didn’t live up to its true potential. Tennessee was ranked 28th in the NFL in yards allowed (398.3) and 24th in points allowed (27.4) per game. Byard says the reason for the defense’s struggles stemmed from its inability to get off the field on third down. "It all...
    Giants’ Sterling Shepard taking on a bigger role as the longest tenure player on the offense Alexander Wilson August 6, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit When New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard showed up to training camp bearing the No.3, it was noticeable that something had changed. Shepard, who is entering his sixth season in the NFL, has taken on a much larger role this year. Aside from being one of the team’s top targets in the receiving game, Shepard has become a mentor and leader behind the scenes, helping some of the younger guys adapt to the NFL. Ranging from the wide receiver unit to the cornerbacks, Shepard has made an impact on a number of players, including rookie Kadarius Toney and sophomore CB Darnay Holmes. After practice on Wednesday, Shepard stated that he tries to assist Holmes with his coverage, learning from his mistakes while up against the veteran pass-catcher. Holmes regurgitated Shepard’s comments on Thursday, indicating how much she’s...
    Los Angeles Filming Rebounds to Pre-Pandemic Levels Fiverr dives 25% as the freelancing company lowers outlook Fantasy Draft season is here, and it’s time for the most important position, the running backs.  A few of the usual caveats upfront. The salaries are unscientific in nature, merely used as a way to compare players within their position. I do not compare salaries outside of position — the salary of a running back is only meant to be considered within his positional class. I am generally far less expectant with injury returning players, so don’t be surprised when I like them less than you do. Every Shuffle Up is done from scratch. I think it’s counterproductive to justify an old, dated list. Players with the same salary are considered even. Assume a half-point PPR scoring system.

    Jessica Alba said her husband was more like a roommate at times while raising their 3 kids U.S. stocks fall Friday, book weekly losses amid delta variant concerns and weakness in Amazon results Very few defenses have the legacy of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the late 1990s and early 2000s.  Other great defenses have won Super Bowls. Very few did it without much star power on offense. The 1970s Steelers had a great defense and an offense with multiple Hall of Famers. The 1985 Bears had Walter Payton. The 2015 Denver Broncos had Peyton Manning, and although he was a lesser version of himself in his final season, people will remember it as a Manning team.  The 2002 Buccaneers had an offense that was not near the top half of the league, but they had a defense. Did they ever. It was a punishing defense with Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, Ronde Barber and others.  Safety John Lynch was a key member of that defense and it took a while for him to get to the Hall of Fame....
    Dissecting Andy Dalton’s vision for the Chicago Bears offense Usayd Koshul July 28, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit Chicago Bears starting quarterback Andy Dalton took a direct approach when speaking about what the Bears’ offense could accomplish throughout the 2021 season. Dalton, who spent last season with the Dallas Cowboys after spending nine seasons as the starting quarterback of the Cincinnati Bengals has continued to command respect throughout the offseason in Chicago. Despite Bears’ fans’ desire to see rookie Justin Fields start, something cannot be denied when analyzing Dalton: Experience. Dalton has started 142 games since 2011 and has been to three Pro Bowls. Despite never having won a playoff game, the 11-year veteran has seen enough football to know what the Bears offense is capable of. “I feel like with this offense and the players that we have, I think we can be pretty versatile,” Dalton said via the Bears official YouTube Channel. “We can run the ball, tight formations, we can spread you...
    The A’s have primarily sought pitching at the trade deadline for several years now, going back to the 2014 all-in trades for Jeff Samardzija and Jon Lester. They just agreed to a deal — pending physicals — to acquire reliever Andrew Chafin from the Cubs, solidifying the bullpen. But the A’s front office must not ignore their struggling lineup this trade season. Despite skittering to a July record of 8-11, the A’s are right in the thick of a playoff push. They sit 5.5 games back of the Houston Astros for first place in the American League West and 1.5 games ahead of the Seattle Mariners for the AL’s second wild card spot. The A’s should be serious about adding more pieces to their roster to bolster their postseason run. Expect them to add some bullpen depth, at least. But this month, it’s clear that the A’s underperforming offense could use a spark. An underperforming offense Matt Olson is arguably putting together a season worthy of MVP consideration. The rest of the A’s offense hasn’t been able to...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) — The Miami Dolphins kick off the 2021 season as Training Camp begins Wednesday, July 28.

    MEXICO CITY. One million 95 thousand traffic violations were applied in the first quarter of this year in Mexico City, 91 thousand more than in the same period of 2020, that is, an increase of 9 percent. The greatest offense between last January and March was for speeding in central lanes of controlled roads, which is 80 kilometers per hour, with 600,120 fines. An increase of 40 percent compared to the same period last year, when 427 thousand 885 were committed, which also placed it as the main traffic offense. This according to figures that the SSC published yesterday on the Open Data Portal of Mexico City. The agency noted that “it had a considerable delay” in the processing of said data due to the effects of the pandemic. Most of the speeding recorded in the first quarter of this year were in February, when 248 thousand 92 infractions were recorded, followed by January, with 188 thousand 173, and March, with 163 thousand 855. On the contrary, speeding on primary roads (with a maximum of 50 kilometers per hour) decreased...
    Why the New York Giants’ red zone offense will be much better in 2021 Anthony Rivardo July 19, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Giants have revamped their offense. In the 2021 offseason, New York did not hold back. The Giants made every move they could this offseason to upgrade the offensive side of the ball. They spent big in free agency with the signings of Kenny Golladay and Kyle Rudolph. They then doubled down in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft when they selected wide receiver Kadarius Toney 20th overall. The Giants made move after move dedicated to fixing their incompetent offense. In 2020, the Giants had the second-worst ranked offense in the NFL. New York averaged only 17.5 points per game last season, a truly putrid number. One of the reasons why the Giants struggled so badly to put points up on the scoreboard was their inefficiency in the red zone. Their red zone scoring percentage ranked 31st in...
    New York Giants: Evan Engram would be a superstar in the Chiefs offense? Cay North July 16, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit Evan Engram remains one of the biggest questions in the New York Giants offense. The Giants drafted him primarily as a pass catcher, but he’s picked up a polarizing reputation for dropped passes, inconsistent appearances due to injuries, and accusations of slacking off at times. However, the Giants obviously still believe in his potential judging from how the team has kept him around rather than trading him when his value was higher. ESPN is also a believer in Engram, ranking him in their list of top 10 tight ends that was determined by NFL executives, coaches, and evaluators. Engram came in at number eight on this list, above Jonnu Smith and the divisional rival Eagles’ Zach Ertz. What did these professionals have to say about Engram? Interestingly, their thoughts indicate that the Giants might be misusing his talents. 8. Evan Engram,...
    Mask mandate returns to Los Angeles as coronavirus cases rise Comedian Gabriel Iglesias Cancels Show After Testing Positive for COVID, Says He Feels Pretty Good Deployment matters a great deal when it comes to NFL success. To deny that how players are used, where they line up or fit with others in their offense, has an outsized impact on the stats they accumulate is patently absurd. As such, one of the most important storylines to track in training camps is where guys are being deployed. Let others fawn over one-handed catch videos or smoke-blowing by coaches. You keep your eye on what matters. Here are seven players (including a couple of situations) who I think will have their outlooks dramatically affected by their deployment or that of those around them. Antonio Gibson, Washington Football Team As the consensus-ranked 11th player at his position with a top-20 overall ADP, the fantasy hive-mind expects Antonio Gibson to produce RB1 numbers. Understandably, some folks might be hesitant to go out on that limb, based on his 2020 usage. Gibson’s 44 targets as...
    Getty Head coach Matt Nagy of the Chicago Bears Matt Nagy wants Chicago Bears fans to know one thing: He’s ready to run the football in 2021. The Bears head coach and offensive play-caller has been criticized for both his play choice and design, as well as the inability of his offense to run the ball with any kind of regularity, but he says he understands the value of the run game — and says he’s ready to use it. Nagy called plays for the Bears offense in 2018 and 2019, but he gave up play-calling duties last year in the midst of a six-game losing streak. The Bears averaged 19.7 points a game with Nagy calling plays, and after he turned the job over to offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, that number jumped to 27.7 points. To be fair, when Lazor called plays, Chicago faced much tougher opponents, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Bears top running back David Montgomery also thrived with Lazor calling the plays, netting 579 of his 1,070 yards in the six...
    Former Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller joined "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Wednesday to react to a report obtained by Fox News host Tucker Carlson claiming that the military was flying illegal immigrants slamming it as "absolutely not legal." "It violates a wide series of immigration laws that delineate in great depth the precise rules and conditions for how you can enter the country and how you cannot enter the country... This is not about an administration that is unable to protect the border," Miller said. "This is about an administration that in a very purposeful, planned, deliberate, painstaking fashion has turned our Border Patrol and ICE agencies into resettlement agencies." Earlier in the show, Carlson confirmed that the Biden administration used the US military to "secretly" move illegal immigrants throughout the United States, specifically out of the Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas. Carlson read an email from Lt. Col. Matthew Burrows to his subordinates, which was obtained through a whistleblower. "Over the next few days, weeks or months," the note began, "you may see passenger aircraft on our ramp transporting undocumented non-citizens. Please review the attached public affairs guidance on the issue." ...

The No. 3 pick of the 2018 draft, Darnold didn’t have much success with the Jets. But he’s drawn some positive reviews from teammates for his performance during the offseason program with Carolina. During a Wednesday appearance on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football, defensive end Brian Burns said he was happy when he heard the Panthers had picked up the young QB. “When I met him, he’s a cool dude, down to earth, nice guy,” Burns said. “Watching him through OTAs, I can tell he has that dog mentality. It takes a little bit — he’s got to get comfortable with the team. He just got there. I can already tell he’s going to be a great addition to the group and...

    Chicago Bears: Biggest questions at the QB position Usayd Koshul July 11, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The Chicago Bears will start training camp at Halas Hall in just over two weeks, with significant turnover at the quarterback position. The Bears moved on from Mitchell Trubisky this offseason, replacing the former second overall pick with veteran Andy Dalton and rookie Justin Fields. Set to return is also veteran Nick Foles, who started seven games for the Bears in 2020, winning just two games. As Chicago continues to get ready for the 2021 season, what are three questions at the quarterback position? Let’s find out. 1) How long will Dalton hold off Fields? The million-dollar question that has every Bears fan buzzing: When will Fields start? Bears head coach Matt Nagy has consistently said this offseason that a plan exists to develop Fields.

Editor’s note: This story contains a graphic account of an alleged sexual crime. Barkevious Mingo, an outside linebacker for the Falcons and nine-year NFL veteran, was arrested in suburban Dallas on Thursday and charged with indecency with a child—sexual contact, according to the Arlington Police Department. He turned himself in “on his own accord in consultation with his attorney” and has been released from custody after posting a $25,000 bond. Mingo’s attorney, Lukas Garcia, provided the following statement to SI via Mingo’s agent: “The allegations out of Tarrant County against my client are completely baseless. Barkevious Mingo is innocent. At this stage, our side has very limited information. What we do know is these allegations are from over two years ago and are completely untrue.

    Getty Members of the Los Angeles Rams offense join Van Jefferson in celebration of his first career NFL touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020. Jefferson is joining a much deeper receiving unit for the Rams this year, leading to higher expectations. The Los Angeles Rams may have had two wide receivers who caught more than 90 footballs, plus had the aerial side responsible for 20 of the team’s offensive touchdowns in 2020. But something was missing: The deep game. One glance at the 2020 receiving yardage, and there’s the proof the explosive side went missing. No Ram wide receiver – not even the 90-catch tag team of Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods – surpassed the 1,000-yard mark. Josh Reynolds, the team’s third-best receiving option, only got to 618 yards. Changes had to be made by the Rams. Matthew Stafford came to L.A. via trade to reignite the lost deep game. But with a passer known for attacking downfield comes wide receivers needed who can attack deep. All the more reason why there are new faces in...

The first 81 games featured a heavy dose of injuries, strong starting pitching and resilient comebacks, mixed with a widespread lack of offense and the rest of the division not exactly giving them a run for their money. The next 81, set to begin Tuesday night against the Brewers at Citi Field, will decide whether the Mets play into October or end up as a disappointment. “I’m pleased with how we’ve played,” manager Luis Rojas said. “But this is where we gotta tell each other that we gotta keep going.” Here are five questions that follow the Mets into the second half of their season: 1.

    Getty No. 77 Andrew Whitworth joins in on the Robert Woods touchdown celebration during a 2019 regular season game against the Arizona Cardinals. The Rams have struggled on offense lately, with Whitworth offering an explanation on the PFF NFL Podcast on Monday. Four years ago, the Los Angeles Rams executed an offense that took the league by storm and took defensive coordinators out of their comfort zone. But since that time, the offense production has gone from second overall, to 11th to falling all the way to 22nd in the NFL last season. What happened to a unit that once frustrated opponents with a flurry of motions, pre-snap reads and physicality near the goal line with such ease? Andrew Whitworth has seen the high and low moments of the Ram offense himself, and the left tackle joined the Pro Football Focus NFL Podcast on Monday to finally offer an explanation behind the unit’s downturn. Whitworth said it’s what goes on inside the opponent’s 20-yard line that’s plagued the Ram offense lately. “You really look at the last couple...
    (CNN)Zerious Meadows was 16 when a Michigan judge sentenced him to life without the possibility of parole for participating in a felony murder. Now, at 67, Meadows is free. During 20 of the 47 years Meadows was in prison, he said, he earned an associate degree in business accounting and participated in several programs. "I was doing everything I needed to do to stay out of trouble" even though a life sentence gave him zero chance of getting out, he told CNN on Monday. Meadows' release in 2016 wasn't because of a third trial that exonerated him. He was released after the US Supreme Court ruled that juveniles sentenced to life without parole must be resentenced. After a judge resentenced Meadows to 25 to 45 years in prison, he had to wait another year while prosecutors appealed before he was sent home to his surviving relatives. A new report released by The Sentencing Project on Wednesday shows, in part, that serving multiple decades behind bars is not an effective deterrent to decrease violent crimes and that recidivism rates among individuals...

    New York Giants: Why Kenny Golladay was the ‘perfect’ free agent signing for Daniel Jones Alexander Wilson June 29, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Giants are heading into the 2021 season with far better personnel on offense compared to the 2020 campaign. Unfortunately for quarterback Daniel Jones, the team traded away one of the best receivers in the NFL upon his drafting (OBJ), and it took them two years to provide him with an arsenal of weapons most would consider adequate. This off-season, management had one priority, upgrade the offense and provide Jones with as many supporting pieces as possible. They started with signing one of the best possession receivers in football, Kenny Golladay. The two sides agreed on a four-year, $72 million deal with an out in 2024, which would count $6.8 million in dead money. By that point, Golladay will be 30 years old and have earned $21.4 million for the 2023 campaign. However, his cap hit for this upcoming season...
    New York Giants: Sterling Shepard and his versatility will be crucial for the offense in 2021 Anthony Rivardo June 28, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Giants revamped their receiving corps in 2021. Last season, the Giants’ group of wide receivers were a subpar group that failed to create separation or make contested catches. Only one wide receiver (Sterling Shepard) reached the league average in separation yards last season via Next Gen Stats. In the 2021 offseason, the Giants recognized this deficiency and worked to fix the issue. They went out and got Daniel Jones a new alpha dog outside receiver in Kenny Golladay and also added a speedy human joystick underneath in Kadarius Toney. This receiver group is now loaded, giving Daniel Jones plenty of options to share the football with. Darius Slayton might seem like the odd-man-out to some, but he actually might see the field a great amount. The reason for this being Sterling Shepard’s positional versatility. Over the past two...

    Mandatory Credit: Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports The Georgia Bulldogs have plenty of hope coming into the 2021 season, but they have huge hurdles that will keep them from a championship. Georgia has been on the cusp of something special for a while now. Is this the year they break through and grab their first national championship since 1980? They have a strong defense and an offense that could provide what has been missing all along. Even so, there are cracks in the facade that make it clear the Bulldogs aren’t going to get across the ultimate finish line.3. JT Daniels is far from provenJT Daniels is a caliber above the quarterback talent Georgia has been used to. That much is clear. Is he a national title-winning quarterback? That’s still a huge doubt. The USC transfer showed real promise in his four appearances in 2020, throwing for 1,231 yards and 10 touchdowns. He rightly got the hearts of Bulldog fans pumping and he’s kept them going with fireworks in the Spring Game. Daniels has some flaws, though, and they’re the kind...
