“He could do anything and loved doing it.”Jackson might be best known for his “Whoa, Nelly!” exclamation, but he didn’t overuse it. Borrowed from his great grandfather, a farmer, the phrase also part of a commercial Jackson did for Miller Lite in the mid ’90s. But it was no catchphrase.”He never made anything up,” Musburger said.

Powell also weighed in on it: “Last year, a friend was doing a project where she wanted to study quarterbacks throwing the ball with someone hitting them. I pushed him while he was throwing. He was still throwing 60, 70 yards off a push. He just doesn’t have the experience that Andrew Luck had at a high level that Andrew had coming out of college. So I see a ceiling for this kid similar to Andrew Luck. That’s why I believe in this kid so much.

Giants safety Landon Collins was injured in a loss to Dallas. He hurt his left ankle in the fourth quarter making a tackle on Cole Beasley at the end of a 54 yard pass play. Collins was in a walking boot after the game. 1 defense in the league. Stanton, unlike Palmer, isn’t a high percentage passer, and the Lions “D” has the speed to hang with his receivers while putting pressure on him up the middle. Calvin Johnson, back from injury, and Golden Tate make for one of the best WR tandems in the league.

Watson has to be concerned about the potential for injury. Again, you have to look at this from Watson’s standpoint: What is there to gain for him? It’s not about what there is to gain for the Browns or Bears. The Texans have their own quarterback challenges, primarily the created by the fact they guaranteed Osweiler $37 million in free agency last year.

He was hard nosed. Practices were disciplined. Coaches were organized. It’s a decent sized company and there is room to move up, so my friend asked why he wouldn’t take it. The thought process is, he needs to work and he can move up. The problem is, he re sets the bar at the lower level.

Mauboussin: Athletics is a great example. One of the points I would make, which I think is pretty common sense once I say it, is that whenever you see an outlier in sports, it is always a combination of really good skill and really good luck. One of the best ways we can measure that is through streaks.

Has 8 sacks in past 4 vs. Den. Since 2012, ranks 3rd in NFL with 54.5 sacks. A: Well, I think first off, just talking to my agent, the respect that Coach [Sean] McDermott and the [Doug] Whaley family had for me. I’ve always said that once I had the opportunity to get into free agency, if it would come, that I would want to be respected. Put the numbers aside, I felt that coming into it.

And let’s be honest without Wilson, there is no Seahawks offense. There are anonymous running backs spinning their wheels behind that sub ordinary line, there are some OK wideouts and a once upon a time all star tight end who takes whole games off. Without Wilson, there would be a puddle where his surrogate once stood, served up as sacrifice.

When Cleveland last lost 11 in a row, the Browns stopped their slide with a win at home over Cincinnati in 1975. “It was fun to see guys jumping around and happy,” said Browns kicker Phil Dawson, who has been with Cleveland since 1999. “They never had that feeling before and it was great to see.” Rookie Brandon Weeden threw two touchdown passes on his 29th birthday and cornerback Joe Haden sparked Cleveland’s defense with his return from a suspension to lead the Browns (1 5).

‘During the three days they were here, we provided access to every full and part time employee the league’s representatives requested to speak with and produced every communication device that they requested to search.

In those six seasons, Alabama has played a non Power Five opponent the following week, won all six and failed to cover the spread in all six. Do we think Fresno State wins? Of course not.

There are a lot of things that comes to mind when I think of the “Rooney Rule”, first I think of affirmative action and the problem it has caused America due to a certain quota that has to be met and the way it singles out the wrong people. Then I think of the people who are over looked or just brought in to comply with the law. The Rooney rule is a rule set by the NFL that organizations need to interview at least one minority candidate before making its hire of who they really want..

6. Arizona Cardinals: They’re in desperate need after Carson Palmer’s retirement and at a major competitive disadvantage in the NFC West, where the other three teams look to be set under center for the next decade.

Gilbert has missed five games this season due to a lingering hamstring issue. Chris Hubbard likely will fill in on Sunday when Pittsburgh hosts Green Bay (5 5). Pittsburgh offense has been more productive this season when Gilbert is available. That includes the Bears, whose perpetual quarterback problem comes to a head as Thursday’s start of free agency approaches. If general manager Ryan Pace plans to pursue free agent Mike Glennon, as the Tribune reported, then the Bears should release Jay Cutler immediately not so much as a courtesy to Cutler but to give other teams shopping for a quarterback someone else to consider beyond Glennon. The fewer teams interested in Glennon, the cheaper the bridge QB will cost..

Generally speaking, every year, there a predictable arc to Super Bowl ticket prices on the secondary market. The market rate for Super Bowl tickets tends to be high (perhaps three times face value) in the days before the AFC and NFC Championship games, and then once it clear who will play in the Super Bowl, there usually a price spike as fans clamber for the chance to see their team win the title. After this initial wave of purchases subsides, prices tend to drop as Super Bowl Sunday nears and sellers don want to get stuck with seats at the last minute..

Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett could have declared for the NFL draft after last season. Blessed with a 6 foot 7 frame and NFL ready arm, he likely would have been a first round pick earning him millions of dollars in guaranteed money before he took his first pro snap.But Mallett said the idea of leaving Arkansas just one year after transferring from Michigan didn’t feel right, and that he “owed it to the state” to stay in Fayetteville.It had to be a tough decision, leaving all that money on the table. But an NCAA program that helps athletes such as Mallett protect their million dollar futures made the decision a little easier.Mallett took out an insurance policy through the NCAA’s Exceptional Student Athlete Disability Insurance program to protect himself and his potential future earnings against the possibility of a career ending injury.He’s not alone.

However the one thorn in Belichick side has been the two postseason encounters with Tom Coughlin.

Sixteen players landed on injured reserve, including offensive starters Ryan Grant, Jermichael Finley and Mark Tauscher; Green Bay’s divisional rival Chicago Bears had an improbably successful season; Rodgers himself missed two games to injury. And dutifully, he addressed those things.

Sandoval, the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee, and the members of the Nevada Legislature on this historic day,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said in a statement. “All parties have worked extremely hard to develop and approve this tremendous stadium project that will serve as a proud new home for the entire Raider Nation.”Nine Democrats and four Republicans in the Assembly opposed the bill in the, which made unlikely allies out of people on the far left and far right of the political spectrum.The project was nearly derailed late Thursday by a state report that said the Nevada Department of Transportation wants to accelerate nearly $900 million in planned road work to accommodate stadium related traffic. Lawmakers, who hadn’t been warned about the estimate during routine discussions on the project, said they felt blindsided.Transportation officials clarified that the projects were already planned and wouldn’t require raising additional revenue.Critics also decried the rushed deal, which is happening in an abbreviated special session rather than the four month regular session next spring, and complained that the Legislature was applying new tax revenue to a stadium instead of reserving it to alleviate an anticipated state budget shortfall.”We are funding luxury items before we’re taking care of our needs,” said Democratic Assemblywoman Teresa Benitez Thompson, who opposed the deal.
