New Broncos coach Vance Joseph addresses ’03 sexual assault allegations at Colorado
June 19, 2017
New Broncos coach Vance Joseph addressed sexual assault allegations from his past that bubbled anew after he was hired in Denver.
The Boulder Daily Camera published details from a police report from when Joseph was accused of sexually assaulting two female trainers in 2003 while he was a defensive backs coach at the University of Colorado.
Dan Feeney Game Jersey Joseph, who wasn’t charged in the case, hadn’t publicly addressed the allegations before Wednesday, when in an interview with The Denver Post about the team and his recent coaching hires, he said the sexual assault allegations are false.
That was resolved a long time ago,he told The Post. For myself, for my family, for the Denver Broncos, Im disappointed and embarrassed. I was a young guy and it showed to my immaturity and irresponsibility in my life when I was younger. But Ive grown so much and thats why Im disappointed, because Ive grown so much as a person, as a coach, as a father, as a husband.
The Tennessee transfer generated some NFL buzz at Pitt this year, especially after the team’s upset victory over Clemson, in which Peterman threw five touchdown passes.

My worst game this year I felt was against Miami, he said. We really didn’t play up to our potential. But that Clemson game is the one the scouts always bring up to me. It was a great win for us and showed how we could bounce back.
Peterman is a prepared interviewer who speaks the part of an NFL quarterback. He says just enough to be genuine but not too much to open the door for other questions, taking a page out of Wentz’s playbook from a year ago.
Super Bowl LI tickets fall after Cowboys loss
June 16, 2017
Tickets to Super Bowl LIgot a little more affordablethanks to theCowboys’ divisonal playoff loss to the Packers on Sunday.
Minutes after the game, the Super Bowl ticket resale market slumped, according to a report by ESPN.
The sports network reports that before Sunday’s game,the cheapest ticket to Super Bowl LI on StubHub was $4,195.
After the game, the cheapest ticket price reportedly dropped 20percent to $3,349.
Cowboys fans likely drove up ticket prices with the hopes ofmakingthe four-hour drive to Houston to watch their team play in their firstSuper Bowl in 21 years.
Now that the Cowboys are out of the big game,fansprobably are trying to rid themselves of tickets they no longer need.

We’re not saying the Patriots’ scoring drive toward the end of the third quarter was a dagger, but it certainly felt like one. New England put together an eight-play, 88-yard series that included yet another deep strike to Chris Hogan, and LeGarrette Blount finished the job with a 1-yard touchdown. Hogan’s catch during the drive gave him 180 receiving yards, a single-game postseason record for New England. 27-9, Patriots.
Game Mens Joe Berger Jersey Welp. The last thing the Steelers needed after the Patriots’ touchdown was an immediate turnover. That’s exactly what happened on the first play of the drive, when Kyle Van Noy knocked the ball out of Eli Rogers’ arm. Rob Ninkovich recovered the fumble at the Pittsburgh 28-yard line.
Yoenis Cespedes expected back in lineup as Mets open key 11-game stretch
June 14, 2017
The Mets are getting Yoenis Cespedes back in the? lineup just as the team, five games under .500, opens a crucial 11-game stretch.
Cespedes, on the disabled list for six weeks with a left-hamstring injury, was activated and? used twice? as a pinch-hitter over the weekend as the Mets took three of four from the Braves, and manager Terry Collins said he expected the slugger to be in the lineup Monday? when New York opens a three-game series against the World Series champion Cubs at Citi Field.
Robert Quinn Mens Jersey After that, the Mets face the division-rival and first-place Nationals (38-24), who hold a 9 1/2-game lead on New York, before heading to Los Angeles for four games against the Dodgers, who also are playing at a .600 clip.

How hard? Consider that, according to The Associated Press, the Mets are 121-89 since Aug. 1, 2015, when Cespedes plays and 32-41 when he doesn’t.
Cespedes, who slashed at .280/.354/.530 in 2016 with 31? homers and 86 RBIs, will force Collins to juggle outfield time since MIchael? Conforto has morphed into a lineup mainstay. Look for Cespedes (left), Conforto (center) and Jay Bruce (right) to get most of the starts, with Curtis Granderson likely seeing his playing time decrease. Of the four, Cespedes is the only right-handed hitter.
Well flip-flop and move guys around and try to get everybody some playing time, Collins said. As a player, to me, he’s the safest pick in the draft. I cannot be argued with this point. I think he’s quick to the big leagues as a left-handed pitcher. Will he be an ace? I don’t know. I’ve been in the game now for a while. I look at him as a Jon Lester type. Now, I don’t know that he’s going to be the big ace like Jon Lester has become, but this kid is polished on the mound. And then you watch him hit? My comp for him is Justin Bour of the Miami Marlins.
let’s look at the numbers limited by the Super Bowl era.

Beasley also had three sacks of Rams rookie Jared Goff in Week 14. His third sack of the game resulted in a fumble, which Beasley then returned for a touchdown to give the Falcons a 42-0 third-quarter lead.
Beasley lined up wide to the right of the Rams line, then used his speed to get to the edge before powering his way through Rams right tackle Rob Havenstein
That one chance came after the 1998 season, when coach Dan Quinn led the Falcons to a franchise-best 14-2 regular-season record before they lost to the Broncos in Super Bowl XXXIII. But that team didn’t score 540 points in the regular-season, the seventh most in NFL history, like this team.
In Atlanta’s way has been a slew of successful Super Bowl history, starting with the Seattle Seahawks, who won Super Bowl 48 in 2014, in the NFC divisional round. Then came the Packers in the NFC championship game. Green Bay owns more NFL championships than any other team with 13, including those before the Super Bowl era.
But for the sake of the Falcons playing catch-up with those teams, let’s look at the numbers limited by the Super Bowl era.
“I’m just going to love on them, and that training is less intense. The goal is so lesser. It’s, ‘Hey, let’s make sure we’re drinking water, fluid, and all that stuff.’ Out there, when you’re training for ball, it’s a different animal. So I said, ‘No.'”
Smith, 37, spent his first 13 seasons in Carolina and his final three in Baltimore. He finished his career with 14,731 receiving yards (seventh all-time), 81 receiving touchdowns and 19,180 all-purpose yards (also seventh all-time).
Smith initially said before the 2015 season that it would be his last, but after an Achilles injury in Week 8 cut that season short, he announced in December of 2015 his eventual return for 2016.
NFL Combine 2017: 10 biggest snubs from list of invites
June 9, 2017
Every year, 330 NFL draft prospects are invited to Indianapolis to be tested mentally, physically and athletically in front of every NFL decision maker, plus most NFL scouting and coaching personnel.
However, even with 330 players invited, 15 percent of players drafted each year on average will have not been in attendance at the NFL Scouting Combine.
It took a while for Shanahan to reach this level of play-calling swagger. Houston was an OK offensive coordinating start, and Washington brought only brief, zone-read fun with Robert Griffin III. Then came the humbling time with Cleveland in 2014, lowlighted by the Johnny Manziel mess.

Atlanta presented Shanahan a big early challenge, too, in 2015, as Ryan and the rest of the holdover personnel struggled to grasp his complicated concepts at first. But with more time, better health and improved personnel, the Falcons’ offense became this season’s juggernaut and stamped Shanahan’s readiness as a head coach.
Authentic Womens Ibraheim Campbell Jersey “Nothing has changed in what’s he’s been doing to create a high-powered offense,” said Falcons wide receiver Taylor Gabriel, who also worked under Shanahan with the Browns. “His personality out there, he’s a very high-octane dude. He’s very intense on the details of everything. He wants everything perfect.”
For his likely next stop with the 49ers, Shanahan will bring the offensive acumen and intensity of Chip Kelly, only with a more proven track record of NFL success. After busting with the Browns and flying with the Falcons, Shanahan also knows his ability as a coach and play-caller means nothing without a trusted franchise QB.
Donald Trump ditched Super Bowl party with Patriots losing big

By releasing Romo in the offseason, Dallas would save the $5.1 million prior to free agency, which would make the 2017 cap a little easier to manage. If it waited to trade him, Dallas likely would carry the $24.7 million cap charge for at least a few days.
Alternatively, the Cowboys could wait until after free agency begins and designate Romo a post-June 1 release. That would give Dallas no immediate cap relief, but it would split the $19.6 million in dead charges across two years on June 2 and give the Cowboys a salary cap windfall for the regular season.
President Donald Trump made it no secret he was pulling for the Patriots to beat the Falcons in Super Bowl 51.
But Trump didn’t stick around his own party to watch as New England staged a historic comeback.
Dan Williams Kids Jersey With friends Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and Co. trailing 28-3 in the third quarter, the White House press pool noted Trump departed Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., where he was hosting a Super Bowl 51 party. The Patriots then scored 25 unanswered points to force overtime, by far the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history.
Those on Twitter had already begun blaming Trump for jinxing the Patriots with his pregame prediction of an eight-point victory. He was close, as it turned out, and made sure to celebrarte the comeback he presumably didn’t watch after the game was over.
What an amazing comeback and win by the Patriots. Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and Coach B are total winners. Wow!
It’s so in the past that it’s not even relevant anymore.

Post-fight interview: I don’t regret anything,Machado said that night. It’s part of the game. Reactions fly. When somebody’s throwing 99 at you, it’s going to hurt. You can ruin someone’s career. You don’t think in that situation. You just react to it.
Harper: I don’t want to go on a baseball field and try to fight somebody. … It’s so in the past that it’s not even relevant anymore. They won the World Series that year. I don’t even think he should be thinking about what happened in the first round. He should be thinking about wearing that ring home every single night.
Game Youth Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey Final score: Machado 2, Harper 2 (one draw). Looks like any free-agency decisions will have to come down to baseball merits.
While Conforto played well in a limited role early in the season, he has been even better since Cespedes was placed on the DL. The 24-year-old has 35 hits in 107 at-bats with nine home runs and 25 RBIs after replacing Cespedes in the lineup.
Even more impressive has been Conforto’s eye at the plate. He walked just seven times in April compared compared with 16 base on balls in May to raise his OBP over the .400 mark.
Conforto is looking more like the rookie slugger who emerged in 2015 rather than the struggling fifth outfielder who was shuttled back and forth between Queens and the minors in 2016. The Mets needed Conforto to step up. He did that and more.
Game Youth Jordan Eberle Jersey
With Cespedes nearing a return, it will be interesting to see how the Mets align their outfield to keep Conforto in the everyday lineup. It’s safe to say Curtis Granderson’s days as a starter are over and Juan Lagares is better suited as a platoon player, leaving a vacancy in center field. The Mets can choose to play Cespedes or Conforto in center field, but with Cespedes’ balky hamstring, the safe bet is that Conforto will play between Cespedes and Jay Bruce in the outfield.
It was an encouraging offseason for the Jaguars.
June 3, 2017
Marrone isn’t the most exciting hire, but the best thing about him for the Jaguars is that he’s not Gus Bradley. He’s also paired with new executive vice president Tom Coughlin. The three-time Super Bowl winner was the first coach in Jaguars history, and he has returned to help push the team back on track from an executive role.
An offense that redefines itself with a downhill rushing attack could complement an already strong defense that looks primed to be even better in 2017. And not having Bradley on the sideline can only be an encouraging thing at this point.
It was an encouraging offseason for the Jaguars.
But so was last year. And with so much hype derailed in 2016, there aren’t nearly as many ready to jump on the Jacksonville bandwagon again in 2017.
There are so many reasons to believe in the Jaguars now, but I can’t actually buy it. Bortles is still the quarterback and they’re going to have to prove things on the field first before I can trust that anything is different.
I have been rocking back and forth in my chair breathing into a paper bag ever since I saw this music video with Gronk in it, and this is absolutely not a goof. It’s the greatest thing ever.
There is way too much packed into this 3:08 video. We need to slither through this whole dang thing. Hold onto your butts, because this is happening.
The music video opens with a shot of the Vegas skyline before we are shown the interior of a bar. A woman is sitting alone, before Gronk walks in — or walks isn’t the right word. He saunters up.
Seahawks’ window hasn’t closed … yet
June 2, 2017
By most objective measures, the Seattle Seahawks’ 2016 season was a success. They went 10-5-1, won the NFC West title, and advanced to the Divisional round of the playoffs. A lot of teams would love to have that kind of year.
However, the Seahawks were merely good, not great, which feels like a disappointment after a string of dominant performances. The core team that went to two straight Super Bowls (and won in 2014) is largely intact, but there are some cracks starting to form in the foundation.
Game Womens Ja’Wuan James Jersey It’s devastating when you see this in a 25-year old,she said. What our job is, as American citizens, is to maintain the health of these young athletes for the entirety of their life. If there’s something we can do to limit this risk, it needs to be done immediately.”
With that, it was the NFL’s turn. Generally, the league, to that point, had denied McKee’s research and argued that science doesn’t point to a link between CTE and football. Except Schakowsky’s question to Jeff Miller, the NFL’s senior vice president for health and safety, melted the football empire’s stone wall.
The answer to that question is certainly yes …,Miller said.
While the Texans managed to win the AFC South and reach the Divisional round, it was obvious they were headed for a divorce from Osweiler. Sure enough, on the first day of free agency, the Texans banished Osweiler to Cleveland in an NBA-style salary dump trade.

Since O’Brien arrived in 2014, Houston has had eight different starting quarterbacks, a who’s-who of journeymen, has-beens, and never-weres. We’re talking guys like Ryan Fitzpatrick, Ryan Mallett, Case Keenum, Brian Hoyer, and T.J. Yates. Even Brandon Weeden showed up for one start, to give you an idea of how desperate Houston was getting.
Reviews were mixed on Arenado entering the 2009 draft
May 31, 2017
In effect, Osweiler received 12.5 percent more money to derail his career by choosing Houston over Denver. I said at the time it would be short-sighted to leave a championship team for a few million dollars more elsewhere. The difference between $16 million and $18 million per year was not going to be a life-changer. (And his agent probably could have negotiated significant performance incentives to bridge that $2 million-per-year gap.)
L.C. Greenwood Game Jersey Whether it was greed, ego or just a bad decision, it was a mistake. Now Osweiler sits on the roster of the worst team in the league, and Cleveland is ready to dump him.
Making matters even worse for Osweiler was the story about that locker room confrontation with O’Brien during Houston’s regular season finale against Tennessee. Osweiler reportedly questioned the coach’s decision to put him in the game when starter Tom Savage suffered a concussion, and things supposedly got heated to the point that Osweiler tried to walk away and O’Brien held up his arm to stop him.
Dion Lewis Authentic Jersey Reviews were mixed on Arenado entering the 2009 draft. He’d played mostly shortstop in high school, but he didn’t fit that profile. Some teams viewed him as a potential catcher, based on his frame and strong throwing arm.
Pedroia was a stud at Arizona State (he was a Golden Spikes Award finalist), but his small stature meant he didn’t fit the draft profile for many teams. Oops. The Red Sox were quickly rewarded for their choice; Pedroia reached the majors by 2006, won the AL rookie of the year award in 2007 (and the Sox won the World Series) and won the AL MVP in 2008.
