Zay Jones, all-time college catches king and Bills pick, thinks he has NFL drafts best hands

Game Kids Tyrann Mathieu Jersey I believe I have the best hands in this draft class,Zay Jones said on the phone a few weeks ago. Im very confident in saying that, and statistically, I can back it up.

The statistics say Jones is one of the most prolific receivers ever. His 399 career receptions at East Carolina are an FBS record, breaking the mark held by fellow Pirate Justin Hardy. His 158 as a senior are the same for a single season.

At 6, 200 pounds with arms measuring 32 inches, Tabor looks the part at cornerback. Plus, he backed it up with stellar play throughout his college career. The defensive back is tall, long and athletic enough, despite a poor performance at the NFL Combine.

Tabor was a disruptor on defense, totaling 104 tackles, including 11 for losses, 28 passes defensed, eight interceptions and three defensive touchdowns in three seasons in Gainesville.

But according to Fox Sports, his aunt gave him the nickname. The one part of these stories that remains the same is that it all goes back to his resemblance to a doll.

His aunt dubbed him Budda when he was a little kid because I was short, had a big belly and my eyes are slanted. The nickname stuck. So much so that someone in high school once thought he actually had a twin brother named Bishard. He admits he hasnt done much research into the real Buddha other knowing him as The Enlightened One.
Game Kids Walt Aikens Jersey The nickname stuck, even though the Hdidnt.

At the NFL draft, someones yelling at Christian McCaffrey AGAIN

After he led Stanford past Iowa in the Rose Bowl two seasons ago, Christian McCaffrey did a postgame interview on the field. A man came up behind McCaffrey and enthusiastically, in perfect tone, yelled Heisman to support the Cardinal running back.

Joe Gilliam Womens Jersey The exchange ¡ª one-sided as it was ¡ª went viral. McCaffrey showed impressive composure in completing the interview with the man screaming behind him. He later said he appreciated the man as one of his true fans.

Jordan Reed Womens Jersey McCaffreys all grown up now, and the Panthers took him with the eighth overall pick in the NFL draft on Thursday. He was yelled at again, and again it was supportive.

If McCaffreys eardrums arent blown out by close-range yelling, hell probably have a great experience in Carolina. Hes such a dynamic player that he can fit wherever the Panthers put him, and this is a really fun pick.

Theres no denying McDowells talent. Character concerns caused him to fall into the second round, and one team said their interview with him was the worst theyd ever had at the combine. His effort is inconsistent and his technique needs a lot of work, but if Pete Carroll can get him up to speed, hell be a great addition.

Baker is undersized, but it hasnt stopped him from dominating. Hes got the range to succeed as a free safety at the next level, and the versatility to bounce to nickel if needed. Being undersized at the college level is one thing, but there is a risk involved in his transition to the NFL.

Joe Thornton returns to lineup for Sharks in Game 3 vs. Oilers

San Jose Sharks center Joe Thornton returned to the lineup Sunday night after missing the first two games of the playoffs because of a left knee injury.

Thornton was in his usual role as the top-line center playing 16 minutes in Sharks’ 1-0 loss to the Edmonton Oilers in the Game 3 of their first-round series. Thornton missed the past two weeks after injuring his knee in a regular-season game at Vancouver.

Thornton started the game on a line with captain Joe Pavelski and Melker Karlsson as his wings. Logan Couture moved down to second-line center. Couture struggled the first two games; he is recovering after losing several teeth when he took a puck to the face last month.

Mikkel Boedker was scratched to make room for Thornton.
Jiri Hudler Authentic Jersey
After splitting the first two games of the series in Edmonton without Thornton, the Sharks are now down 2-1. The next game of the series will be played Tuesday at SAP Center.

“We talked a little bit last night and then today about if he [plays the game], if he needs to not, whatever he wants,” Stevens said during his pregame press conference. “I think one of the things i’ve learned having been through situations in the past, there’s really no right or wrong answer. It’s whatever’s right for him.”

The Celtics had a moment of silence for Thomas’ sister before the game. Immediately after, fans began chanting “Go IT!” according to MassLive.com’s Jay King.

He’s masterful at finding a bit of space where he can work.

It really doesn’t need to be much.

McCollum was sensational and Lillard backed him up. It’s exceptionally hard to outscore Golden State, but these two at their best nearly matched them shot for shot. Even if it’s in vain, it’s fun to watch them try.

The 10th assistant will happen, but it won’t happen in a way that overly inconveniences small schools.

Great point guards generally accomplish the same set of goals on the floor, each choosing their own preferred way to do it. Where Chris Paul is sneaky and exploitative, Russell Westbrook is soaring dynamics, and Stephen Curry thrives off causing panic, Wall’s trick is to treat the defense like they’re not even there. He’ll loft a touch pass over them to his big man, or glide by them effortlessly. Occasionally, he needs a bit of help — but his reaction here sums it all up, right?

Wall shrugged all the way to a Game 1 victory as Washington moves past Atlanta. That was a real treat. We’ll see what Atlanta comes back with in Game 2 — certainly, more attempts to get the ball out of Wall’s hands and make other players beat the Wizards. But Wall was so masterful on Sunday that if he plays anything like that, it probably won’t matter.

So this solution suits pretty much everyone. The 10th assistant will happen, but it won’t happen in a way that overly inconveniences small schools.

It could, however, set off a second wave of coaching changes
Often, coaching changes take place after the regular season ends, but before Christmas. This 10th position could see major shake-ups in January, however, as coaches look to jump to better schools.

“And I know the people of Pittsburgh, who loved him not only for the Super Bowl championships he brought as the owner of the Steelers, but for his generosity of spirit, mourn his passing today. Michelle and I offer our condolences to the Rooney family, some of the most gracious and thoughtful people we know — even as we celebrate the life of Dan Rooney: a championship-caliber good man.”

The oldest of Rooney’s nine children, Art II, currently serves as the president of the Steelers, a position he took over in 2003.

Only someone like Giannis could throw down dunks like these.

Giannis Antetokounmpo will throw down dunks that other NBA players — even athletic ones! — wouldnt dream of attempting. Heres Antetokounmpo just reaching out as he flies by the rim like he has extendo-arms and tossing the ball through.

Game Mens Zach Line Jersey Later in the quarter, which Milwaukee won 30-22, Antetokounmpo threw down this slam outside the restricted area while slightly off balance, even. That could have been a floater or a layup for most NBA players, with a chance it would get blocked upon release, but Antetokounmpo just rose over everyone and tossed it in.

Wow. Just … damn. Thats not just athleticism, but Antetokounmpos impossible height, flexibility and wingspan, all coming together in a way that you just dont see from NBA players.

Antetokounmpo finished this season as the first player to end the season top 20 in all five major statistics. Hes very good.

When Bobo came to Fort Collins, he retained the services of former CSU co-coordinator Marty English, first as linebackers coach, then as coordinator in 2016. The results were familiar, if nothing else.

Youth Nick Swisher Jersey Over the last five years, CSUs Defensive S&P+ rating, presented in the form of an adjusted points per game figure, has been 31.3, 33.1, 31.8, 31.9, and 31.4. The Rams having a below-average defense (above-average for the MWC) has been one of the sports constants, no matter who the head coach or coordinator is.

The important thing is to serve the fish sticks raw.

The coolest part of this Spillymeal is the fact that using Rice Krispies means the sushi will MAKE NOISE when you eat it! It’s like a hundred tiny voices crying out in terror and begging for release.

OK Greg, are you still with me? At this point you should have a bowl full of Rice Krispies and a blender full of brown. Let’s grab the next ingredient that will help the rice congeal:

Now, slice up that sushi roll with a big fancy knife (not the rusty one, the good one you keep on the counter to show off to your friends that you aren’t giving them tetanus when you cook for them).

The important thing is to serve the fish sticks raw. So lay it out on the counter for a few hours first. Unwrap a few of the Twix and set aside. Use the remaining rice glop and form small balls. Then, wrap a fish stick and Twix bar around it with a rubber band. People will probably take those off first before you serve it. Maybe.

Brown spent 17 years as a basketball coach overseas and says international ball is 鈥渧ery, very different鈥?from the NBA. Players here are faster and more athletic than those in Europe. It took months for Saric to understand that, he admits.

But Saric鈥檚 advantage over college prospects is that he鈥檚 used to playing against grown men and not peers his age. Saric could have come to the NBA when he was drafted in 2017. Instead, he stayed in the Euroleague for two seasons.

Saric used that time to practice under revered European coach Du?an Ivkovi?. He worked on the intangibles: How to make plays with fewer dribbles, how to keep his head in the game.

Philadelphia Eagles Game Jersey Then, Brown pauses to reference his team鈥檚 health issues. Simmons hasn鈥檛 touched the floor and Embiid has only played 31 games in three years.

Limited Womens Pekka Rinne Jersey But those ailments allowed Saric to come into his own. That makes the future even brighter in Philadelphia, and they know it.

鈥淓specially when Joel comes back, when Ben Simmons comes back, this team has a lot of talent and a big opportunity to make something [happen],鈥?Saric says.

this matchup looked like a potential battle for the division lead

This will be a battle of strengths. The Lions are third in the NFL, averaging 306.9 passing yards per game. Pittsburgh has struggled to stop the run, but is No. 4 against the pass, allowing just 201.3 passing yards per game. Something will have to give when they meet at Heinz Field.

Heading into the season, this matchup looked like a potential battle for the division lead. Not a lot has gone right for either team through 10 weeks, though, and the game will be one of two on Sunday without major playoff implications.

The game will, however, have an impact on the NFL Draft order. Despite losing its first eight games, Tampa Bay could tie Atlanta at 2-8 with a win. The Buccaneers have been playing better recently, while Atlanta’s struggles have gotten worse as the season has gone along.

The knee-jerk reaction would be to question the league’s involvement with the Olympics in the foreseeable future. I know I did, and it’s a valid point.

The NHL’s talks with the International Olympic Committee clearly have been stalled for months. Just take a look at these few sentences from the NHL’s statement on the matter:

“A number of months have now passed and no meaningful dialogue has materialized. Instead, the IOC has now expressed the position that the NHL’s participation in Beijing in 2022 is conditioned on our participation in South Korea in 2018.”

The North Carolina Tar Heels are the 2017 National Champions after defeating Gonzaga 71-65 Monday night. The game was tied at 63 with less than two minutes to go, but a flurry of action from UNC in the final 20 seconds led the Tar Heels to a 71-65 win. It was sweet redemption for North Carolina after a heartbreaking loss in title game last year.

Indeed, North Carolina did just enough down the stretch to emerge on top.

UNC head coach Roy Williams had five national title games’ worth of experience coming into the night. He gathered and calmed his team down during the contest’s final media timeout.

“I said that if you would have told us we were going to be in this situation the first day of school when we met at my house, we would have taken it,” said Williams. “That’s all Roy Williams did. I didn’t do one other dadgum thing.”

“What a story, one for the ages, if he’d step in there and this year help us win a Super Bowl on the field with his skill,” Jones told the New York Daily News during the 2016 season. “That can happen here. We’re not talking about a bus driver out there. We’re talking about a guy who can go out there and move our team.”

Realistically, Romo is probably done. But the slim chance that he could be swayed and the almost certain chance that a star quarterback will get injured means the Romo speculation isn’t likely to die anytime soon. The Seahawks traded away their fourth-round pick to the New England Patriots during last year’s draft, and they were docked a fifth-round pick for violating the CBA’s rules covering offseason workouts.

John Lynch says Oakland Raiders fans can just root for nearby 49ers

The Raiders’ upcoming move from Oakland to Las Vegas means that fans in the East Bay will soon find themselves without a local team to support for the first time since 1982. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch wants Raiders fans to remember that there’s another NFL team nearby that would welcome their fandom.

“Part of me says, I think it’s good for us,” Lynch said Monday on NFL Network. “Raider fans, we’re open for business, you know! Come and jump on our train.”

Authentic Kids Morgan Moses Jersey The distance between Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum and Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara is just over an hour’s drive. If Raiders fans are willing to turn their backs on the team because of the relocation to Las Vegas, switching loyalties to the 49ers would be logistically easy.

The game can still end in a tie if teams are still deadlocked at the end of the period. Last year we saw two tied games in the same season, a rarity in the modern NFL era. If overtime does get cut back by five minutes when this proposal is revisited, teams will have less time to create a scoring opportunity, so it’s entirely possible we’ll see even more ties in the future.

Still, Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien doesn’t think that will be the case.

“I don’t think that that’s going to happen,” O’Brien said. “If you look at the stats on overtime, probably most of the overtimes are over before 10 minutes.”

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he won’t mind if the end result is more tied ballgames.

“Wouldn’t bother me,” Harbaugh said. “Ties, they count in the standings.”

Whether this would be good or bad for the sport remains to be seen. Considering it didn’t have enough votes to pass, teams aren’t completely sold on the idea of this change being an advantage.
