Ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo releases first statement since firing

Despite leading the Giants trainwreck of a year before being fired Monday, Ben McAdoo took the high road in his first statement since being let go along with general manager Jerry Reese amid a disappointing 2-10 season.

Reports began to swirl Sunday that McAdoo could be sacked depending on the team’s Week 13 performance. The Giants seemingly hit rock bottom during the loss to the Raiders as Geno Smith started at quarterback in place of veteran Eli Manning, who had been benched last week.

With McAdoo and Reese both fired, Manning is expected to resume his starting role under center Sunday against the Cowboys.

Which is to say that no one expected Thanksgiving 1979 to be any different. The challenge for Eagles security was to mitigate gameday carnage to the greatest extent possible; one of these innovations, the practice of taking crossbows and hatchets from fans attempting to bring them into the stadium, Demaryius Thomas Authentic Jersey continues to this day at Eagles games, and in some other cities as well. Another innovation fared less well.

Gordon has been suspended for the past 43 of the Browns’ 48 games due to repeated violations of the league’s substance abuse policy. He returned to practice for the first time Wednesday, and Friday he said he was feeling good.

I think he is a very talented player, Jackson said. He needs to play, needs to get out there and play, but we have to see where he is and make sure how much can he handle, how much can he do.

When the clock read all zeroes and the Eagles had won 351-19, the Kevins marched on City Hall and captured it easily. The lawyering Kevins, for a brief window, diverted significant portions SEPTA revenues to small pubs in Philadelphia’s Alan Branch Jersey Old City, Beard/German Village, Cathedral Goiter, and Grumptown neighborhoods. Many pub owners received new carpeting, others drapes. No games have been played on Thanksgiving on the East Coast ever since.

The Cardinals receiver had five catches for 44 yards through three quarters of Sunday’s game against the Titans to pass Randy Moss.

Elite Mens Kerry Wynn Jersey The Cardinals were shut out in the first half, but Fitzgerald’s two catches in the third quarter helped his team get on the board with a pair of field goals. The Titans held a 7-6 lead as the game entered the final quarter. The Cardinals (6-7) rallied for a 12-7 victory as Fitzgerald finished with those five receptions.

With so many of the team’s pass-catchers sidelined, Eric Hipple volunteered to move to play receiver. An interesting note: One receiver, Jeff Chadwick, only pretended to have fenestrated bowel because he really wanted to go to a Thanksgiving party for All My Children in New York City, where his sister was a production assistant. He was later busted when Lions kicker Eddie Murray saw him playing a dentist on the soap opera; they’d given him a walk-on role during his visit.

Phil Bennett leaving as Sun Devils’ defensive coordinator after bowl

Arizona State defensive coordinator Phil Bennett will leave the program after coaching against NC State in the Hyundai Sun Bowl later this month.

“I will always be a Sun Devil fan,” Bennett told reporters Tuesday. “I will pull for these kids and this program. I think it’s in good hands. Just very appreciative to all of them.”

He had a lot of leverage. In 2013, in addition to winning the national championship in men’s basketball, Louisville beat No. 3 Florida in the Sugar Bowl and made the finals in baseball and women’s hoops. Jurich commissioned a $185,000 documentary, Year of the Cardinal, which aired on ESPNU.

The Adidas deal quadrupled the company’s commitment to Louisville in cash and gear and was a huge bet on Jurich’s vision. The average annual compensation of the 10-year contract was exceeded only by Under Armour’s deal with UCLA ($18.7 million) and Nike’s deals with Ohio State ($16.8 million) and Texas ($16.7 million) — universities with at least twice Louisville’s enrollment.

“I was looking forward to no games,” Crabtree said. “But there is nothing I can do about that.”

Crabtree and Talib still have time to appeal their suspensions. If they stand, which is likely, Crabtree will be out against the Giants and Talib will miss the team’s game against the Dolphins.

This season, at the end of each positional section, there is a subgrouping of players, “Players off game-status injury report.” The probable tag no longer exists, so players who would have been listed as probable in previous seasons are now simply removed from the report.

“Without getting philosophical, and I’m not sitting here with a crystal ball or projecting things like that, that’s not how I roll,” Reid said, via Arrowhead Pride. “We’ve all got a responsibility to do our job at all positions, starting with me, and that’s not getting done the right way. Right? It’s not one guy, and that has to be understood. It’s not one person.chargers_009

Jaguars proved once again their best offensive play is a fake punt

For the third time in 2017, the Jacksonville Jaguars ran a perfectly executed fake punt that led to a touchdown. The latest fake Womens Ron Francis Jersey was a 29-yard pass play from punter Brad Nortman to tight end James O’Shaughnessy that roasted the Indianapolis Colts’ return unit in Week 13.

This was far from the sometimes passive rookie the Lakers have seen at times this season. And the rest of his teammates were every bit as engaged and in battle mode as their point guard was. Down by 19 in the third quarter and looking as cooked as a turkey this Thanksgiving, the Lakers yet again refused to quit after falling behind big. But this time they came away with their biggest comeback of the season.
John Riggins Elite Jersey
An incomplete pass intended for Keenan Allen set up a 34-yard field goal for Nick Novak, but the Chargers kicker pushed it wide right, leaving the score, 0-0. Novak is now eight of 12 on field goals since taking over the kicking job for the Chargers in Week 5 following the release of Younghoe Koo.

While the Chargers haven’t been getting off to good starts, the team has still been winning games as of late, with victories in four of its last six matchups. Most recently it scored 54 points against the Buffalo Bills.

Los Angeles still hasn’t had a first possession score, but the long drive wasn’t a bad start for the Chargers who are looking good early against the Cowboys.

At 6-4, 218 pounds, Rosen has the size of an NFL quarterbacks, and he has the ability to make all of the throws on the field, including ones that make scouts salivate. His touch on the 18- to 35-yard pass is simply superb.

Ronald Darby Jersey Ball may be getting the magnifying glass, but it is Kuzma who might soon get the spotlight.

The Utah product has double-doubles in three of the team’s past four games, his best stretch of the season in that regard.

Kuzma had 12 points and 14 rebounds in 32 minutes in the Lakers’ 110-99 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday, a game in which the Los Angeles bench outplayed the team’s starters. Jordan Clarkson, Ball’s backup, had perhaps his Tracy McGrady Jersey best game of the season with 22 points, six assists and five rebounds, including 14 points in the fourth quarter.

I thought JC had maybe the best quarter I’ve ever seen him play, Los Angeles coach Luke Walton said. They kept switching their defense up and he just kept taking what the defense gave him, which is what you want to do as you mature in this league. I thought he did a really nice job handling himself down the stretch.

Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen says his injured throwing shoulder is better than 90 percent recovered, but it’s still too early to say whether he will be able to play in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Dec. 22.

Allen has been mentioned among the top quarterback prospects in the 2018 NFL draft.

He sprained his right shoulder on Nov. 11 against Air Force and missed Wyoming’s final two regular-season games.

It’s still not where I think it needs to be or where I’d want it to be, but things are progressively getting better, and I can feel it getting better day by day, he said of his shoulder. Throwing is becoming a lot easier.

Miami goes three-and-out and punts back to Oakland with 3:31 to play in the third quarter.

Oakland comes up short on a third-and-4 and is forced to punt. The Dolphins have the ball on their 18 with a chance to take the lead.

Touchdown, Dolphins. Miami answers the Raiders’ touchdown with one of its own. Kenyan Drake breaks a 42 yard run to move the Dolphins just outside the red zone, and four plays later Cutler connects with Jarvis Landry for a 6-yard score. Miami cuts its deficit to 20-16.

Nickell Robey-Coleman, CB, Los Angeles Rams A thigh injury sidelined Robey-Coleman in the second quarter against the Vikings, and he was declared doubtful to return.

As we did with McNair, the Cowboys must be prepared for the possible time when Elliott can no longer escape his suspension. Cowboys execs have made sure to have a quality backup in former Redskins starter Alfred Morris, who is a two-time Pro Bowl selection but has only 14 carries through the first eight games. Dallas also signed the oft-injured Darren McFadden for further insurance at the position, but he has not played so far this season.

Detroit will be wary of avoiding a trap, just as it was against Green Bay and Cleveland. The Lions will grind out some tough yards early before Matthew Stafford builds on his recent groove. Chicago’s limited offense also matches up poorly against Detroit’s defense.

Field goal, Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger completes a pass to Antonio Brown that moves Pittsburgh to the Titans’ 42. After three straight incompletions, Chris Boswell kicks a 50-yard field goal to put Pittsburgh ahead 16-7 with 15 seconds left in the half.

The Titans go three-and-out and the Steelers will get the ball back for one more first-half drive.

Field goal, Steelers. Pittsburgh fails to punch it in following the interception and is forced to settle for a 28-yard field goal from Chris Boswell. The Steelers lead 13-7 with 1:40 to play before halftime.

So, the Raiders have played better recently and the Patriots are, well, just good. Something has to give this week, so what are the odds the Raiders can snap New England’s road winning streak?

Tom Brady leads the league in passing yards (2,807), spreading the ball around to a variety of wide receivers, running backs and tight ends. Because Brady has an abundance of options, the Patriots are hard to defend on a weekly basis.

Oakland possesses the NFL’s 26th-ranked defense, allowing 361.1 yards per game. The Raiders shook off Spencer Ware Jersey their early four-game losing streak, but they still face long odds at beating the Patriots this week.

He outplayed Timberwolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns, who had 18 points and 12 rebounds as Minnesota lost on back-to-back nights.

He controlled the paint at both ends of the floor, so he was a force in the paint on offense and his pick-and-roll defense, Hornets coach Steve Clifford said. His team defense was terrific. He controlled the game.

Johnathan Joseph Authentic Jersey Said Timberwolves forward Taj Gibson: We tried to get a body on him but he was real active tonight. We tried to match it, but their whole group collectively did well moving the ball and had us strung out.

I am just looking forward to that turnaround.

There’s a bad rep as far as having a lot of children, Terricka explained. That’s true and all, but no one knows how he is with the children and how great a father he is.

And a lot of fathers out there are going to be talked about and Authentic Lynn Swann Jersey their wives are going to be like, ‘Hey, Antonio does this, you need to do this.’

Q: How do you find consistency in the running game?

Drake: It’s kind of hard to say, you’ve just got to go out and play the game. Obviously (the defense) gets paid the big bucks to stop us. Not every play is going to be a positive gain. We’ve just got to make sure you stay ahead of the sticks and stay on schedule with third-and-manageable and converting those third-and-shorts more times than not.

The 16-game Womens Ricky Jean-Francois Jersey winning streak ended tied for the fourth-longest in Celtics history.

Miami won the third quarter 25-22, which doesn’t sound like much — but was significant to the Heat. That three-point margin, somewhat unbelievably, is their fourth-best in a third quarter this season. Miami had been outscored 60-29 in its last two third quarters before Wednesday.

Glenn had one more 1,000-yard season in New England (1999). He caught Tom Brady’s first career touchdown pass in 2001 before a one-season stint in Green Bay (2002) and a four-season run in Dallas. He posted back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons in Dallas from 2005-06 before knee injuries eventually fazed him out of the league in 2008.

During his career, Glenn compiled 593 receptions for 8,823 yards and 44 touchdowns.

Throughout this piece, I’ll be referencing OTD. OTD stands for opportunity-adjusted touchdowns. It is a statistic that weighs every carry/target and converts the data into one number that indicates a player’s scoring opportunity. For example, if a player has an OTD of 3.0, it means that a league-average player who saw the same number of carries/targets in the same area of the field would have scored three touchdowns.
