He’s day-to-day, Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said after practice Friday. He’ll get looked at more today, and then we’ll know more about the day-to-day tomorrow.

In January, we correctly picked seven of 10 schedule alert games — and two of those contests in which teams beat schedule alert obstacles came when those teams were facing Clifford’s Hornets. However, Clifford wasn’t coaching his team at the time; his assistant was. That said, the formula doesn’t take into account who is coaching which teams, who’s on the court or any factors unrelated to the schedule.

But even with those two hideous Hornets losses, all told we’ve correctly picked 26 of 32 games this season — and, again, our 81.3 percent success rate is plenty ahead of where the formula predicted we’d be. David Johnson Authentic Jersey (As noted here previously: We applied our schedule alert formula to 10 seasons — from 2007-08 through 2016-17 — of games, and the results showed that teams facing schedule alert situations with a MahScore of 8 or higher lose 63 percent of the time.)

Cuban told Julius Erving on the House Call with Dr. J podcast that he shared that sentiment with the team recently.

I’m probably not supposed to say this, but, like, I just had dinner with a bunch of our guys the other night, and here we are, you know, we weren’t competing for the playoffs. I was like, ‘Look, losing is our best option,’ Cuban said on the podcast. Adam [Silver] would hate hearing that, but I at least sat down and I explained it to them. And I explained what our plans were going to be this summer, that we’re not going to tank again. This was, like, a year-and-a-half tanking, and that was too brutal for me. But being transparent, I think that’s the key to being kind of a players owner and having stability.

In May, Cuban said the Mavericks looked to lose as much as they could at the end of last season once the team was out of postseason contention. Dallas finished with the ninth-worst record in the NBA and didn’t improve its draft position through the lottery.

Avisail Garcia Jersey hoping to improve on All-Star season for White Sox

Avisail Garcia is trying to pick up where he left off last year. So far, so good.
Team Canada Dan Hamhuis Olympic Hockey Nike Jersey: Premier Men's Red #5 2014 Away Jerseys
The Chicago White Sox All-Star right fielder arrived early in camp to deal with his salary arbitration case, which he won. Since he was at spring training anyway, he stuck around and got some extra work in.

It’s not entirely clear what’s going on between Pogba and Mourinho, but it seems pretty clear that something’s going on. In many ways it seems to be the classic Mourinho vs. player argument that we’ve seen many times before. What might seem on the surface to be footballing questions 鈥?what’s Pogba’s best position? why is he out of form? why is this angry Portuguese man shouting at him all the time? 鈥?are addressed through the mechanisms of exile and shame.
Edinson Volquez Elite Jersey
Transfer rumours coincide with convenient illnesses, briefings and counter-briefings flourish. Mourinho says something intemperate to a journalist or two. The stench of performative machismo descends. And then, at least in this phase of Mourinho’s career, things don’t really seem to improve.

This, broadly speaking, is the most frustrating thing about watching Mourinho’s United. It’s not Phil Jones or Chris Smalling, the hangovers from previous regimes that may never be good enough. It’s the players that should be or could be good enough, or at least better than they are, and the opportunities they aren’t being given. Pogba is the emblem here: a player of expansive creative talents, ambition, and imagination, being asked to keep things tight in midfield and then punished when he can’t.

That comment will come as no surprise to anyone who has watched Martinez struggle over the past three seasons, and last year, things took a turn for the worse when he twice went on the disabled list because of an irregular heartbeat. He eventually had a surgical procedure to correct that, and he’s back now to try to contribute however he can to a rebuilding Detroit team.

I was in rebuilding before with the Indians, Martinez said. I don’t know. I’m just trying to have fun this last year and help the way I can. These young guys — not a lot of people get the opportunity to play every day in the big leagues, so I hope they get that and take the most out of it.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Elite Jersey But it goes beyond the players. There is a celebration of the different types of fans as well. As the celebrity game was going on, Miles Brown, the 12-year-old Blackish actor, was pulled aside from the bench to the commentary table so he could gush about meeting LeBron. After the first quarter, Michael B. Jordan was interviewed not just as part of his current Black Panther press tour, but also to discuss his namesake, his Finals prediction, and so on. This was after Celebrity Game legend Kevin Hart clowned Nick Womens Tyrell Adams Jersey Cannon’s basketball skills on the big screen.

Sherman would help shore up a weak pass defense for a Raiders team expected to be a Super Bowl contender.

The Raiders ranked 24th against the pass last season, allowing 257.5 yards per game and tied for 20th with 27 touchdowns given up through the air.

Seattle would pick up $2.231 million of 2017 salary cap room by acquiring Amerson. Sherman’s 2017 cap number is $13.631 million. There would be a $4.4 million cap charge from his $11 million signing bonus with the trade while Seattle would be paying Amerson $7 million in 2017. The Raiders have already paid Amerson a $1.5 million roster bonus that was due March 11. Amerson is under contract through the 2020 season with annual salaries of $6M in 2018, $7.5M in 2019 and $7,880,123 in 2020. His $5.5 million 2018 base salary is guaranteed for injury and becomes fully guarantees Feb. 7.

Seattle would be justified in seeking similar compensation as the Jets received shortly before the 2013 draft from the Buccaneers for Darrelle Revis, who was recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee.

Coach Buck Shaw made sure it was a fresh team.

“After six preseason games, we never wore pads or helmets except on Sunday,” Khayat said. “Practice was never more than an hour [and] 20 minutes. If we got up close to the hour-20 mark, Marion Campbell would start calling out: ‘Save it for the Pro Bowl, Buck.’ And Coach Shaw would get the offense in the huddle and call, ‘88 now to gate,’ and then when they snapped the offense would sprint to the buses to see who could get there first.”

“The dreaded end result [of being prescribed an opioid] is needing 400 milligrams a day just to feel normal,” says Dr. Sisley. “I’ve seen professional athletes graduate to heroin because they can’t keep getting OxyContin.”

The Chargers lost Eric Weddle through free agency in 2015 and never truly replaced him. They re-signed Jahleel Addae to play one safety spot, and Dwight Lowery is projected at the other spot.

Keep an eye on Sammy Watkins in L.A. The Rams receiver is growing frustrated with his role — specifically his lack of production.

Watkins, who came to the Rams this season after some injury-prone years in Buffalo, enters Sunday’s game against the Jaguars having caught only one pass for 17 yards in the past two games. He was shut out Sunday against Seattle, where he was targeted four times.

33. Jerry Jones, owner, Cowboys (28): Did Jones get bailed out by Dak Prescott after refusing once again to sign a veteran backup to the fragile Tony Romo? We also get to find out in January if Jones gets voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Lots of drama, as usual, for the Dallas owner.nike-youth-cardinals-091

No one has a deeper coaching tree (it’s an offshoot of the Mike Holmgren tree, which is an offshoot of the Bill Walsh tree) in the NFL right now, with Reid’s influence spreading far and wide across multiple staffs — Ron Rivera of the Panthers, Doug Pederson of the Eagles, Sean McDermott of the Bills, Todd Bowles of the Jets and John Harbaugh of the Ravens all coached under Reid. Pat Shurmur and Steve Spagnuolo are at least candidates this year to secure head coaching jobs.

After handing off the ball to rookie running back Corey Clement, then getting it back on a lateral, Foles set his feet and fired a deep ball up the left sideline to wideout Torrey Smith, who had a couple of steps on cornerback Trae Waynes. However, All-Pro safety Harrison Smith was closing fast toward the sideline, necessitating a pinpoint throw. No problem: The ball dropped perfectly over Torrey Smith’s shoulder and into his hands for a 41-yard score.

The league said it has seen a jump in the number of self-reported concussions by players, something they have tried to encourage.

Kelvin Benjamin Womens Jersey John Mara, the Giants’ co-owner, had asked his players to stand and was not pleased when some did not, but he admitted that he has mellowed because of what he’s learned from them. I think my position has evolved a little bit, Mara said. When it first happened, I think I probably had a little more of a hard-line position on it. But since I’ve spoken to players and heard what they’ve had to say and tried to understand what it is they’re protesting, I think my position has evolved a little bit.

Meanwhile, owners and players plan to meet again this week to discuss activism on social issues.

But you have to figure that the heat those coaching candidates are getting, what with multiple former Patriots front office guys situated around the league — most notably Bob Quinn with the Lions — likely isn’t ideal for Belichick making a Super Bowl run. There are always interviews that can get in the way of preparation, although it certainly did not bother the Patriots last year. As good as Belichick is, losing his offensive and defensive coordinator in a single offseason would Ramon Foster Jersey be suboptimal.

Whew! The NFL’s playoff seeds and first-round matchups were set in dramatic fashion.

Buffalo got the final postseason berth when Cincinnati stunned Baltimore. The unlikely outcome scrambled the postseason picture for five AFC teams: Baltimore, Buffalo, Jacksonville, Kansas City and Tennessee.

The Bills will be in the playoffs for the first time since 1999. They had the longest postseason drought of any pro team in North America.

Playing with his eighth team, McCown has found unexpected success with the Jets, ranking second in the league in completion percentage (69.0), while being just one of three quarterbacks in the league with at least 12 touchdown passes (14) and three rushing touchdowns.

Everything has been going extremely smoothly and my life is trending upward, Manziel said, according to the Dallas Morning News, so I don’t even Dede Westbrook Youth jersey want to let this get anywhere near the rabbit hole that you were describing.

Bill O’Brien, Texans: Though Houston is 4-11, it could be a relationship, not a record, that does in O’Brien. The Texans head coach and general manager Rick Smith have a toxic relationship, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Little wonder. So far, the league owners have stood by their commissioner, Roger Goodell.

He’s taken these owners from mere millionaire to billionaires, one football insider recounted last week.
Yogi Ferrell Kids Jersey
Perhaps. But Goodell and major league football has had a lot of help along the way and the wind at its back, most of it courtesy of Uncle Sam.

As with other trophy assets, be it beach-front property in the Hamptons, Central Park West condos or tech startups, much of the Federal Reserve’s money-printing has inflated asset values while die-hard football fans have seen their wages go nowhere since 2008.

Since the Fed’s money machine went into overdrive in 2008, the top NFL franchise, the Dallas Cowboys, has doubled in value, from $1.6 billion back then to $3.2 billion today.

The 31-yard return set the Browns up at the Giants 39-yard line.

Pace of play … The NFL made quickening the pace of games a priority this season, and Goodell said in New York he’s pleased with the results thus far.

“We said all along this wasn’t about reducing the length of games,” Goodell said. “It was the pace of the game. The 40-second clock is an example we put in after the point-after-touchdown and after the touchdowns and had a real impact.

However, the Browns were unable to take advantage of the impressive field position. Cleveland ended up coming away with zero points after Brock Osweiler threw an interception.

If the first two weeks of the preseason are any indication, opposing offensive linemen could be in trouble anytime they go up against Myles Garrett this season. After an impressive debut against the Saints last week, the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft picked up his first sack of the preseason on Monday when he took down Geno Smith.

You know how NFL teams say that those dreaded distractions must be avoided at all costs? What about when the owner of the team is the person creating the off-field turbulence?

The Browns are on the clock. The No. 1 overall selection in the NFL draft is secured. In the meantime, they seek their own brand of perfection when they play Sunday at Pittsburgh with a winless season still within reach.

“I wholeheartedly agree with the commissioner’s statement,” Spanos said in statement posted to the team’s website. “The NFL and its players, more than anything, have been a force for good. What our country needs right now is a message of unity, civility and mutual respect.”

As someone who is required to watch that game, I can’t believe I’m saying this … but I am. It’s time for the Jaguars to unleash Blake Bortles, against the mighty Steelers, in Pittsburgh, with a trip to the AFC title game at stake.chargers_076

The injuries are accumulating for QB Matthew Stafford Jersey and the Lions are becoming an afterthought in the NFC playoff chase.

The most meaningful issues arising from Monday night’s game in Cincinnati were concerns over the severity of the injury suffered by the Steelers’ Ryan Shazier and the alarm over the brutality of the illegal hits delivered by both teams. The competitive implications of the Bengals’ loss were far less significant, although their playoff chances Womens Stephon Gilmore Jersey were damaged.

Was that really this season when the Chiefs were 5-0? It seems like several years ago right about now. Maybe Coach Andy Reid will snap to his senses at some point and figure out that a dramatic change or two must be made. Otherwise, there is no indication whatsoever that the Chiefs are going to find a way to reverse their downward spiral. And it might be too late now, anyway.

Chubb is the pre-eminent edge-rusher in the 2018 class who checks all the boxes. Size. Production. Pass-rushing moves. Edge-setting strength. Athleticism. He’s really good.

Cutler’s numbers actually could’ve been better if not for a holding penalty. On his fifth play from scrimmage, Cutler hit Parker for a 31-yard gain that was called back when Sam Young was flagged for holding.

Limited Youth Terrell Davis Jersey A big reason why Cutler gave up his announcing job at Fox and return to football is because he wanted to be reunited with Dolphins coach Adam Gase, who served as his offensive coordinator in 2015 while both men were with the Bears.

Gase definitely seems to already trust Cutler, and it showed during the quarterback’s brief time on the field. During his two offensive possessions, Cutler spent most of his time in shotgun and even appeared to be calling his own plays at certain points, which is impressive when you consider the fact that he signed with the Dolphins less than two weeks ago.

Elite Mens Jamie Garcia Jersey Jones may feel that he is being reasonable, but David Moore of the Dallas Morning News writes that it comes across as imperious and noted that Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price called Jones’s order, Slaves, obey your master.

Of the two, the Seahawks are the better bet to chase down the Cowboys for a wild-card spot. Despite the hiccup in Washington, Seattle is allowing just 1.52 points per drive, the sixth-lowest scoring rate this season 锟斤拷 while forcing opponents into three-and-out situations more than a third of the time (38.1 percent), ninth-highest in the league. The Seahawks also boast the second-best coverage unit in 2017.

He’s uber-athletic, having run a sub 4.41 40-yard dash to go along with a legit 40-inch vertical. While he’s a smaller back (5-foot-9, 210 pounds) he was still able to pump out a ridiculous 32 bench presses. As a comparison, Derrick Henry racked up 22 reps on the bench. Not including fullbacks, the 32 reps by McKinnon is the most by any running back in at least the previous 10 combined. It’s a long way of saying: yes, he’s fast, but the guy’s stronger than you’d think.

In that apparently insatiable need to speculate about what comes next, the caller, on with host Jordan Helle that day, referred to Taulia Tagovailoa, a high school quarterback in Alabaster, Ala., near Birmingham.

Josh Bailey Limited Jersey Said the caller, It’s amazing that he has a younger brother who’s supposed to be better.

It sounded lunatic, of course, yet also like a thousand hoping calls in a thousand hoping towns, in the 48 states on the U.S. mainland.

So on third down, with the seconds slipping away, and the Steelers on the Patriots’ 7-yard line, Roethlisberger told his offense to prepare for a spike play. And then the voice in his ear, offensive coordinator Todd Haley, told him otherwise.

It came from the sideline, ‘Don’t clock it, don’t clock it,’ Roethlisberger said. At that time, everyone thinks it’s clock, so you don’t have time to get everyone lined up.

We just didn’t play hard as a team for 40 minutes, period, Tennessee guard Evina Westbrook said. That can’t happen.

Tennessee’s Mercedes Russell scored 16 points and shot 7 of 9, but the 6-foot-6 center didn’t get much help. Russell’s teammates shot a combined 12 of 44 from the floor and scored 36 points.

Without injured Jimmy Butler and Jamal Crawford, the Timberwolves overcame 56 percent shooting by the Clippers and made 33 of 39 free throws — led by Teague’s 16 of 17 — to win for the seventh time in nine games.

They are playing as well as anybody in the league, so to come in here and get a win, we did do a lot of good things, Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau said. We got great contributions from everybody.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers and assistant Mike Woodson were ejected with seven seconds left, two of four technicals the team received in the final 4:50. Their second straight loss dropped the Clippers into ninth place in the Western Conference, a half-game behind Denver for the final playoff spot.

Elite Youth Kenneth Acker Jersey Kyle Kuzma added 15 points as the Lakers (17-29) continued a midseason surge of solid play. Rookie point guard Alex Caruso set career highs with nine points and eight assists, making the most of more than 30 minutes of playing time while Ball missed his fourth straight game with a sore left knee.

The Lakers thought they did nothing spectacularly, but everything well — particularly Authentic Zach Parise Jersey on the defensive end, where they forced 17 turnovers. Los Angeles also won its fifth straight game at Staples Center after a 6-14 start to the home schedule.

Defense. That was the only message at halftime, Lakers coach Luke Walton said. During our home win streak, we have been really, really good defensively.

Los Angeles took the lead late in the third quarter and pulled away down the stretch, scoring 10 consecutive points in a rally led by Clarkson and Randle. The Lakers finished on a 17-4 run.
