Well according to Lynch, Talib didn nix the deal. Lynch said they would have had to fight to get him in SF, so they actually shut the door on the deal. Also, they only went after talib 1st because Sherman wasnt cut. Phillips was 0 4 in the playoffs as a head coach, covering stints with Denver and Buffalo, too. Romo was 0 2, with bizarre circumstances surrounding each. Fittingly enough, Phillips’ defense was a huge reason for this victory, and Romo broke the game open with five straight scoring drives in the second quarter..
I continue to believe and unequivocally support Tom Brady.first and foremost, need to apologize to our fans, because I truly believe what I did in May, given the actual evidence of the situation and the league history on such matters, would make it much easier for the league to exonerate Tom Brady. Unfortunately I was wrong.

Not that anyone really notices sports’ least significant trading deadline. (No team is likely to land a Yu Darvish.) Except, as with everything else that has to do with the NFL, the Patriots do the NFL trading deadline better than anyone. In recent years they muscled up for the home stretch by trading for cornerback Aqib Talib in 2012, defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga in 2013, linebackers Akeem Ayers and Jonathan Casillas in 2014, defensive tackle Akiem Hicks and linebacker Jonathan Bostic in 2015, and linebacker Kyle Van Noy last year.New England last year also hurt itself, but only short term, dealing linebacker Jamie Collins to Cleveland on Halloween.The Patriots won the Super Bowl anyway.Cornerback Malcolm Butler and backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo are in the same impending big payday position that Collins was last year.
Helpers galoreBy chipping in an assist on Sunday, Blake Wheeler is up to 56 assists on the season, leaving him in second place in the NHL (behind Flyers forward Jakub Voracek) going into Monday action. Wheeler has chipped in 28 of those helpers on the power play and leads the Jets with 74 points in 65 games. Wheeler already has a career high in assists and is closing on his mark for points (78, set in 2015 16)..
Remenda has his share of critics, but I admire his knowledge of the game. And when he decides to let it rip, he really goes for it. He’s got strong and informed insider opinions and he’s at his best when he’s calling it as he sees it, rather than pulling his punches.
