What’s cooking with Arizona LB Paul Magloire?

Paul Magloire nearly took a completely different career path.

“If I could redo my whole life, I would have gone to culinary school,” the Arizona linebacker told Omnisport. “I would want to cook. I like cooking.”

Before Magloire left Arizona to visit the Giants last week, he prepared a couple of ribeye steaks so they’d be ready to throw on the grill when he got home.

1. Bill Belichick genuinely doesn’t know the the names of any social media platforms
He knows social media platforms have a “Face” on the end or start of their names. He thinks it’s possible the face belongs to somebody.

But he really just doesn’t care to actually know what it is, and has never put in the energy to find out. He kinda guesses at the names of these sites based on what he hears other people saying, much like a confused grandparent, and that’s how we get these mashups.

2. Bill Belichick knows exactly the names of every social media platform and intentionally combines their names to make it look like he’s out of touch when really he’s an omniscient wizard who understands everything about everything

Maybe the best thing the offense has going is that the bar isn’t that high — after all, even with Pumphrey, SDSU ranked 79th and 70th in Off. S&P+ the last two years. SDSU has flipped the old truism around: the best offense is a good defense, and SDSU’s defense has been awesome.

Each level of the defense has a couple of impressive players to replace — ends Alex Barrett and Kyle Kelley, linebackers Calvin Munson and Austin Wyatt-Thayer, corners Damontae Kazee and Kalan Montgomery, safety Malik Smith. But we’ve already seen the replacements, and aside from the glitch against Colorado State, the unit held steady.nike_jaguars_1750

Texans QB Tom Savage possibly throws shade at Brock Osweiler

Game Youth Travis Swanson Jersey The Texans quarterback said Monday (via the Houston Chronicle) he expects the team’s quarterback room to be fun and peaceful this year. Basically, no fights or drama.

Osweiler, the former starter for Houston, butted heads numerous times with coach Bill O’Brien and other members of the staff. That included some well-publicized shouting matches between Osweiler and O’Brien.

The accident comes one day before Isaiah Thomas will lead the Celtics into the NBA playoffs as the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference against the Chicago Bulls.

Thomas, 28, had a breakout season for the Celtics in his sixth year in the league. He finished third in the NBA in scoring at 28.9 points per game. Boston placed first in the East at 53-29.

We are terribly saddened by the tragic loss of Chyna Thomas, the Celtics released in a statement. The thoughts and prayers of the entire Celtics organization are with Isaiah and his family. His style, incidentally, is not my favorite. I prefer the smooth contours of Hardens game to Russ rough edges. Westbrook has my vote even though Harden has been more efficient in the classic definition of the word. No matter how you choose to split that metric atom, Westbrook has been just as productive, if not more so.

TNTs Ernie Johnson began Sundays program by offering his condolences to the Thomas family. His pursuit of the mystical, ethereal triple-double galvanized his support, but that was not enough to sway me completely to his side. The triple-doubles were merely a byproduct of his efforts even as they took on a life of their own.

The Raptors weren’t facing a player of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s caliber last season

That was just one game, not seven. And Toronto did win its first two series last season despite losing Game 1 at home. But unless Lowry gets back on track quickly, this could be a different story.

The Raptors weren’t facing a player of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s caliber last season. Toronto wasn’t facing such a strange, idiosyncratic defense. The Raptors can absolutely lose this series if Lowry doesn’t get Toronto’s usually excellent offense on track immediately.

Lowry has a valid excuse for his poor play: he just returned to action after February surgery on his wrist. He’s allowed to be rusty. He’s allowed to adjust his game as necessary. But Antetokounmpo, the Bucks, nor fate will go easy on him because he’s recovering from injury. That’s not how basketball works.

The basketball world is watching how the Bucks and fate treat Lowry in this series mighty closely.

The difference between a nifty jumping catch and an inside-the-park home run for Brian Dozier was a matter of inches, as you can see in this video from Sunday.

Sorry, die-hard WWE fan, but WrestleMania isn’t just for you

Are you a WWE fan? Actually, let me be a bit more specific.
Authentic Mens Chris Chester Jersey
Are you a die-hard WWE fan? The one who has a subscription to the WWE Network and watches all of their pay-per-views? Ever since the roster has been split into distinct brands, there are too many pay-per-views to keep count, and the names all become one abstract blur (Hello, Roadblock: End of the Line). Then there’s also the NXT roster, the cruiserweights of 205 Live, and the British competitors from the United Kingdom Championship tournament: all tertiary story lines within the WWE Universe. If that wasn’t enough, there’s always the network’s original shows. Oh, and then there are RAW and Smackdown Live to keep up with.

If you are one of these fans who devote that much time to professional wrestling, congratulations! You have all those hours of content to enjoy. A seemingly unlimited amount of pro graps isn’t daunting to you; it’s a welcomed challenge. All you have to do is turn on your TV or computer and relax.

Kids Karl Klug Jersey However, there is one caveat in this. Most of WWE’s shows are meant to culminate, in one way or another, in this Sunday’s WrestleMania 33. And that, unfortunately, is not for you.

But there’s another side to it. When we fail at something, when we face disappointment in life, we want someone to bail us out – we want the win despite our failures. Bank executives take dangerous multi-billion-dollar risks that blow up in their faces? No big deal, the taxpayer will pony up for your bonus! You get into a car wreck because you were texting on your phone? Don’t worry, the insurance company will cover it.

The 76ers are one win away from tying their win total from the previous two seasons combined.

For Fultz, the ideal NBA situation would be to sign with a team on the rise that doesn’t have much competition at point guard and can throw the maximum possible amount of money at him.

The 76ers are one win away from tying their win total from the previous two seasons combined. With the dynamic yet oft-injured Joel Embiid, Philly has a building block for the foreseeable future. The 76ers still haven’t seen No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons touch the floor, and the Colangelos only have $35 million in guaranteed contracts for next season. This is a perfect match.

The advantage of pace for a team like Ohio State: Forcing your less-talented opponent to out-execute you as many times as possible.
When you combine that with spread spacing, you raise the stakes for every outcome and can double down every time you out-execute the defense.

This is particularly relevant along the line, where a team like Ohio State should have the kind of athlete most teams can’t find, although this is frustrated by the difficulty in evaluating high school OL.

Just imagine that executed for a blue-chip Buckeye WR, with future NFL linemen advancing into open grass to lead block, and you can see why this would be a nice complement to the existing Meyer offense. Ohio State does have screens, but they’ve never been as devastating as Wilson’s. Meyer prefers to use the QB option game, rather than screens or play-action, as a constraint (a play that prevents the defense from loading up to stop the offense’s basics).

The Salt Lake City Screaming Eagles asked, and fans said no.

An indoor football team in Salt Lake City called the Screaming Eagles posed a controversial question to its fans yesterday: Should the team sign former NFL defensive end Greg Hardy? The fans responded, and the answer was no.

Crowdsourcing personnel decisions is a slippery slope in general, but at least in this case a small majority of Screaming Eagles fans opted to pass on Hardy.

It’s somewhat fitting that it took so much to end such a long streak.

The Red Wings’ streak lasted from 1991-2017. Along the way, Detroit visited the Stanley Cup Finals six times and paraded through downtown Detroit with the most hallowed trophy in sports four times. Those 25 years of success turned the Red Wings into one of the most iconic franchises in American pro sports, let alone hockey.
Dion Bailey Limited Jersey
But the fall from grace was inevitable for a while now, as aging veterans like Johan Franzen, Henrik Zetterberg, and Pavel Datsyuk all retired or saw significant decline in their play. The Red Wings relied on savvy drafting to keep the streak alive, but the prospect pool has dried up as their Eastern Conference rivals leapt ahead.

A rebuild is past due, but 25 years is a heck of an accomplishment. The streak’s end finishes off a truly transitional year for the franchise. The Red Wings are moving out of Joe Louis Arena after the season, and long-time owner Mike Ilitch passed away earlier this year.

Detroit has issues on defense and gets one figured out in the first round.

As is often the case, the Detroit Lions have few needs on offense. On defense, however, you can find several holes on a team that failed to generate an outside pass rush in 2016. Detroit also needs to draft at least one starting-caliber linebacker this year and bringing in DJ Hayden shouldn’t be all the team does at cornerback.

For Jeremy Reisman of Pride of Detroit, he has a chance in the first round to figure out one of those needs.

Reisman: The board couldn’t have fallen much better for the Detroit Lions. Detroit needs serious help on defense and the last five picks were all offensive skill players. The Lions are left with their choice of several players worthy of the 21st-overall pick: Haason Reddick, Taco Charlton, Zach Cunningham, or Takkarist McKinley.
Jimmy Howard Kids Jersey
While Reddick and Cunningham fill a more pressing need at linebacker, I ended up picking Charlton for one simple reason: He is the best defensive player on the board right now.

They could also get more out of four-star class of 2015 guard Kenny Williams, who was efficient off the bench before a knee injury ended his season in February. They should also get more throughout next season from rising junior forward Luke Maye, who went from steady bench piece to Carolina folk hero during the tournament regional final.
Jordan Cameron Kids Jersey
When you’re North Carolina, you’re able to build up impressive depth over years and years. The Heels will lose several of their best players, but the cupboard is stocked well. The talent they’ll add next year won’t have to carry the load for this team to be a high tournament seed and threaten to make yet another run in March.

I’ll miss leaping when it’s gone, but it’s probably time.

At their best, sports treat us to stunning displays of ability and moments that give us a chance to laugh. Sports are entertainment, and attempts at the leaping kick block have a high chance to be entertaining, whether for the reason the defense intends or something else.

“The jump-over rule on the field goal concerns me,” NFLPA president Eric Winston recently told Pro Football Talk. “I would say that there’s a chance for a big injury on that play. Just for the jumper getting his legs caught up and landing on his head and for the offensive linemen in between the ‘A’ and ‘B’ gaps.

“If that guy gets his legs hit and falls on someone’s leg, those are big injuries. Those aren’t sprained-ankle sort of injuries.”

If the 49ers do elect to take a quarterback in the first round, the frontrunner is North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky, despite the fact that he had just 13 starts in his college career.

“Of course the more games that are out there, the more coaches like because there’s more to study, but that’s not [Trubisky’s] fault,” Shanahan said. “He can only control what he can control and in the opportunities that he got, he played at a really high level. That’s why he’s in this discussion.”

There are rumors that Kirk Cousins could be the eventual quarterback of the 49ers and Shanahan was even asked about Johnny Manziel, whom he worked with during his 2017 season as the offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns.

Womens Scott Simonson Jersey Shanahan enjoyed working with Johnny Manziel the short time they were together – always working when in the bldg – accountable.

Stephen Ross addresses media on Dolphins bullying allegations

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross addressed the media in a press conference prior to Monday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He elaborated on the bullying scandal his team is embroiled in, as well as offering more information on the team’s plans moving forward. Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald collected much of the press conference on Twitter.

The organization is currently being examined by the NFL to see if there are any other improprieties that are causing hostility in the workplace. Ross plans to meet with Jonathan Martin this week to understand his side of the events that led him to leave the team. Ross chose to avoid any definitive judgement on offensive guard Richie Incognito, saying he wanted to “wait to hear all the facts.”

Ross said there would be no “racial slurs of bullying” in his workplace moving forward. To achieve his goal he is putting together an independent team charged with creating a new code of conduct policy that would be developed “for the 21st century.” This group includes Tony Dungy, Don Shula, Dan Marino, Jason Taylor and Curtis Martin — three prior members of the Dolphins’ organization with Dungy and Martin serving as outside advisers.

Incognito held his first interview with Jay Glazer for Fox Sports on Sunday in which the offensive guard said his interactions with Martin “came from a place of love.” There has been no official statement from Martin at this time outside of releases by his lawyers to clear up what they allege to be misconceptions about their client.

NFL picks and predictions, Week 11: Chargers vs. Dolphins 2017

The Miami Dolphins host the San Diego Chargers in Week 11, and most people expect the Chargers to get a win on the road.

Limited Mens Stanley Havili Jersey This game has AFC playoff implications as both teams struggle to get back into the playoff picture. The Chargers fell to 4-5 after losing to the Denver Broncos. They are well behind the Broncos and Chiefs in the division and will need to improve on their 2-4 conference record if they want to stay in the wild card race. The Dolphins are in free fall — after a 3-0 start, they lost five of their last six games and are still embroiled in the ongoing hazing scandal. Things hit a new low when they lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and dropped to 4-5. They are one game behind the Jets in the AFC East.

The Chargers are nearly unanimous picks to win. Five out of six experts on SB Nation picked San Diego, with Matt Ufford being the only contrarian. Over at ESPN, seven out of eight panelists are going with the Chargers, and eight of nine analysts at CBS Sports are also picking San Diego to win.

Jay Cutler might be back this week. It doesn’t matter. The Bears have Josh McCown, a quarterbacking vessel controlled by Marc Trestman. His mind beam levitated Chicago past the Packers last week. Sure, Aaron Rodgers was out of the game, but this still happened in Green Bay. Pretty impressive, no? Leave the Xs and Os aside for a minute. Tiny men with giant brains usually triumph over brutes, in the comic books anyway. That doesn’t bode well for Lions, even with juggernauts on the defensive line.
