To come out to Vegas and cover the first home game of the city’s first major league sports team.
Inaugural games are often fraught with mixed feelings. It’s hard to watch the L.A. Chargers without thinking of the fans left behind in San Diego. It will feel the same way when the Raiders eventually kick off in this same city, to know how many scorned fans remain in Oakland.
Manager A.J. Hinch, a congenial and even-tempered Stanford graduate, opened a news conference at Minute Maid by shooting down a report that he had been involved in a bar altercation with some rowdy Dodgers fans in Pasadena, California. Then commissioner Rob Manfred had to dispense some justice when TV cameras captured Houston first baseman Yuli Gurriel making racially insensitive gestures in the direction of Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish from the dugout.
“Tonight’s loss and the last couple are unacceptable, and the only way we’re going to be able to get out of it is to put the work in — as players, as coaches,” Lue said. “And we’re going to do that. … When you lose to teams the way we’ve been getting beat, it’s unacceptable.”
Cain’s 331 starts rank second in Giants history, after Hall of Famer Juan Marichal; he was a three-time All-Star; he threw that magical perfect game, still the only one in the team’s 135-year history.
Carolina Panthers (7:30 a.m.): With C Ryan Kalil once again ruled out with a neck injury and being described as “week to week,” chances of the Panthers’ offense suddenly clicking back into place seem a bit slimmer for Week 8.
Adam Schefter’s overnight update (7:15 a.m.): Sources report to Schefter that Jameis Winston will start at quarterback for Tampa Bay. Melvin Gordon, though likely to be hampered by his injured foot, will also play on Sunday for the Chargers. Golden Tate plans to suit up for Detroit in the night game. Carolina did not activate Roberto Aguayo from the practice squad, meaning they are “committed” to Graham Gano, ankle issue and all.
Has there ever been a 6-2 team heading into its bye with three legitimate possibilities to start at quarterback the rest of the way? You could make the case that it’s crazy to take Case Keenum out while the Vikings are winning, but he’s 25th in the league in touchdown passes and 22nd in yards per attempt. If Teddy Bridgewater and/or Sam Bradford is ready in two weeks, is it crazy to try to elevate the team’s ceiling at the sport’s most important position?
Jacksonville’s defense looks legit, and Marcus Mariota was Watson before Watson was, so it’s not as if the rest of the division is going to step aside and watch this guy’s coronation. The Texans and their young quarterback still have plenty of work to do, and those who would tout Watson for MVP should remember that MVPs almost always have winning records.
He’s also famous for having ridiculously good seats, which gives you a built-in excuse to sit down for extended periods of time.
Get it? Because the U.S. lost to Trinidad and Tobago to miss the 2018 World Cup? This is still painful, and the best way to deal with painful situations is to make light of them. This is also a witty retort to the always annoying question of “why didn’t you come”: Just say you were dressed up as the USMNT at the World Cup. Zing!
Entering Saturday, the total had gone over in each of the past six meetings between these teams, including last season when Oklahoma won 66-59 in Lubbock. It looked like a similar scoring output was in store on Saturday night, as the Sooners led 20-14 in the first quarter.
Mark Ingram didn’t mince words after his two fourth-quarter fumbles nearly cost the New Orleans Saints their fifth straight victory.
Ingram was on his way to becoming the MVP of New Orleans’ win on Sunday before his first fumble came with 7:32 remaining and the Saints leading 17-6. Until that point, he had 15 carries for 73 yards and a touchdown, plus six catches for 24 yards in a game in which New Orleans’ plan was to keep the ball away from Chicago’s opportunistic defense.
Ingram’s next fumble came on the next possession after Chicago closed within 17-12 (on his second carry of the drive). He didn’t touch the ball again on New Orleans’ final possession.
Ball was meant to be the biggest attraction of the night, but he got a full-throated welcome to the NBA from Patrick Beverley, perhaps the most annoying point guard to have to face in your professional debut. Beverley bulldogged Ball all over the court, living in his jersey on defense with an intense physicality. Beverley even showed Ball a thing or two on offense.
Lonzo will have to get used to facing his opponents’ best every night. Fair or not, the young guard has a glowing target on his back, and playing in a city thirsty for relevance won’t help him stay under the radar. Ball doesn’t seem like the type to shy away from the spotlight, even if that could help him face some less motivated competition.
The six-game suspension stems from a domestic violence allegation by Elliott’s former girlfriend in July of 2016. Goodell decided there was enough “persuasive evidence supporting” Tiffany Thompson’s allegations of domestic abuse.
After months of overeager-dad generated hype, Lonzo Ball’s actual NBA debut Thursday left a lot to be desired. Those who stayed up late on the East Coast were treated to a blowout, with the Clippers maintaining their status as the top dog in L.A. with a 108–92 win. Ball, expected to help bring the Lakers back to contender status, didn’t exactly bring them any closer on night one.
Ball finished with a pedestrian line—3 points, 4 assists and 9 rebounds. The Lakers still look more like a collection of parts than an actual team. The occasional thrill of Julius Randle creating his own offense or Brandon Ingram making a nice play at the rim was offset by inattentive defense and a lack of mature talent. Brook Lopez is clearly the best player on the Lakers, and he must be wondering how he’s being shuttled from rebuilding project to rebuilding project.
“I sucked,” Ingram said — a total of 18 times, if you include the word “sucky.” He also mixed in “I was terrible” and “I was whack” a handful of times as he faced the fire after New Orleans escaped with a 20-12 victory over the Chicago Bears.
“I let my teammates down. I put us in a bad position. The game was only close because I sucked. That’s the bottom line,” said Ingram, who had never before lost two fumbles in a game in his seven-year career and now has a career-high three lost fumbles this season.
“I sucked. I sucked. That’s the bottom line: I sucked. Two possessions we’re about to ice the game, and I sucked,” Ingram said. “Let the ball go, hurt my team, hurt my coaches. That’s the thing about a family, that’s the thing about a team: They lift you up, they had my back, and we were able to get the W. But I was whack, I sucked, and I’ll be better.”
“We don’t care about what anyone else thinks about J.T. because we know what we think about J.T. and what he brings to the table,” McLaurin said.
Barrett finished the day 33-of-39 passing for 328 yards and four TDs. He also had 17 carries for 95 yards.
“I’ve never had a kid play perfect, but damn he was close tonight,” Meyer said.
Barrett, who also has run for 36 touchdowns in the past three-plus years, started the season with more total touchdowns than any other player in Ohio State history.
Ex-Michigan quarterback Chad Henne ranks third in Big Ten history with 87 touchdown passes.
“He is the [Mike] Tyson of basketball,” Kidd, a former star point guard himself, said before the Bucks lost 110-91 to Westbrook’s Oklahoma City Thunder. “When the jump ball [goes up], he is coming as Tyson did [in getting] off the stool. When the bell rings, he’s coming for you. Whenever he’s on the floor, he plays at one speed, and that’s fast and hard. He’s a little different in that case that he’s probably the only [No.] 1, and then I would put [at] 1B in that same category John Wall. Just that speed of coming at you every time you’re on the floor. There is no kind of walking the ball up; they are coming at you and causing problems.”
Kidd was very complimentary of Westbrook and his playing style. The pair exchanged a quick handshake and greetings before Tuesday’s game.
“He’s the best in the game,” Kidd said of Westbrook, the reigning league MVP. “Puts a lot of pressure on your defense, offensively and defensively. For him, he can make the adjustment, play with talented guys like [Paul] George and Melo [Carmelo Anthony]. For him, his game doesn’t change. He puts a lot of pressure offensively on that break, just finding the open guy and making the game easy.”
Westbrook finished the game with 12 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists.
Network executives are scrambling to solve the growing problem of crashing ratings for the National Football League, by cutting games to end the perceived “over-saturation” of football on TV.
To put an end to the sliding ratings, the executives are proposing that fewer games may be the ticket to stop that “over-saturation,” with one idea being to cut Thursday Night Football by a whopping ten games.
“You don’t think this is an issue? It’s an issue,” he said. “And Jerry Jones, the first one to sound a bell, ‘guys we have some issues.’ … They’re still massively ahead of everyone else — no one is saying they’re not — but they didn’t want to reach a point when they stopped growing.”
Buffalo Bills players take a knee during the playing of the national anthem prior to an NFL football game against the Denver Broncos on Sept. 24, 2017. The symbolic kneel comes two days after Trump’s harsh comments on players who don’t stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner.” NFL player Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem last year as a way to peacefully protest police brutality against African Americans in America.
“All Goodell cares about is protecting the shield and growing the revenues. That’s it,” Francesa said. “It’s a chase to $25 billion in revenues and that’s all he cares about. He’s taken all the charm out of the league; he’s taken all the history out of the league. The league is just not the league anymore. He’s done a terrible job with this league. As a front person for the league he’s been awful. He’s been good for them …. but from the standpoint of marketing and growing this business he’s done an awful job.”
“I saw a big guy who was athletic, but a guy who didn’t play very hard. And I was concerned about that,” said Stiegelmeier, who wasn’t ready to make a full commitment to Goedert. “We asked him to walk on, and he took the bait. The way he’s grown since then is just amazing. He has made himself, coming from that community, into what he is today.”
After two years in the program, Stiegelmeier put Goedert on a 40-percent scholarship. A year after that, he went to 70 percent, then finally, a full ride. On the heels of that came his 2016 breakout season: 92 catches, 1,293 yards and 11 touchdowns, including a ridiculous one-handed TD catch against Drake that made an ESPN SportsCenter Top 10 list. Referred to around the program simply as “The Drake Catch,” the highlight is now part of the pre-game hype reel on the SDSU video board, ending with Goedert pointing a football — with one hand, of course — into the camera.
Also worth noting: despite the talk of apocalyptic boycotts and ratings doom, the poll found NFL viewership remains both steady and nationwide. The poll indicated that 69 percent of adults watch or follow the sport at least a little; interestingly, that’s up from 56 percent in 2009, when Michael Vick was returning to the NFL after a prison stint for dogfighting.
The HBO/Marist poll surveyed 1,093 Americans, a standard, statistically valid survey size, from Oct. 15 to Oct. 17. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points. For more details, the full survey is available online.
Granted, this is one poll, and other polling organizations which use different questions will return different results. But it’s a data point that helps illustrate that public opinion of the protests during the national anthem aren’t nearly as universal as either its supporters or its critics claim.
Yesterday, the Steelers rookie revealed on Twitter that his beloved bicycle had been stolen. You need to understand: this wasn’t just any bike. It was literally a way of life. The dynamic receiver doesn’t have a car or a driver’s license (growing up in Long Beach, he never needed either), so JuJu’s only means of transportation is that bicycle. Could he take a Lyft instead? No! The point is JuJu loved that bike, man. That bike meant everything!
Last night, JuJu’s bicycle was turned in to local police after the man who apparently bought the stolen bike saw that it was the subject of a national search-and-rescue effort. Personally, I’m a little suspicious of that story. Who’s to say this Good Samaritan “buyer” wasn’t the original Pittsburgh stealer?
After a blistering start to his career, Bryant’s production has nosedived. He scored eight touchdowns as a rookie in 2014 and six in 2015, but he missed all of last year with a suspension. He was reinstated before this season, but he’s failed to make an impact, catching 18 passes for 234 yards and a touchdown through seven games.
The trade deadline is Oct. 31, so if the Steelers decided they want to move on from Bryant they’ll need to work quickly. Bryant is still young (25) and his potential is undeniable, but given his suspension history and the events of the past couple weeks, the Steelers might not be able to get much in return. Keeping him probably makes the most sense for the Steelers, but there are a number of receiver-needy teams out there that could make a move.
Skimbo even sported a “New GOAT” T-shirt after he won. Which is a pretty boss move, to know you have that shirt on while playing. Imagine Tom Brady playing in his already printed championship T-shirt. Actually, I can imagine that.
