Bills players express concern about new helmet rule

The NFL has changed the rules to generally prohibit players from lowering their helmets to initiate contact. Plenty of players are concerned about the practical impact of this rule change on the game. On Tuesday, several Bills players explained their position to ESPN.

I actually had an incident in the playoff game [against Jacksonville when] the trainers didn’t like how I tackled on a few plays, Bills safety Micah Hyde told ESPN. My response to them was just the running back was running at me, and he’s getting as low as he can and lowering his shoulder, lowering his helmet. I have to make a tackle. I’m not going to stand straight up, because he’s going to run straight through my chest.

Bils defensive tackle Kyle Williams supports reasonable efforts to make the game safer, but he realizes that the rule as written can create major issues.

I understand the old rule of targeting and launching, but this seems to incorporate all contact, including incidental contact, which I think is a huge problem for players, Williams told ESPN. There is a risk that comes with playing the game, generally speaking. You can legislate out the flagrant attempts to use the helmet as a weapon, but the reason we wear helmets is because of incidental contact and just the nature of the game.

Drawing the line between incidental contact with the head and deliberate use of the head will be hard to do, especially with little or no guidance from the league as to what the new rule specifically prohibits.

At that time, the question of who plays whom and where will be enhanced with when the ball will be kicked. Which will be big news, even though it really isn’t much news at all.

The key dates to watch will be the Sunday night games (of course), the Thursday night games, the Monday night games (including the Week One doubleheader), the Thanksgiving games, and the all-important season-opening Thursday game, to be played in Philadelphia.

We’ll break down the new schedule from every angle here at PFT as soon as it’s out, and we’ll continue the process of getting you ready for the season to come.

It’s a strong accusation to make. If that’s what Rodgers believes, he should just say so. He should say, for example, that there aren’t two sources close to him who have said anything credible or accurate about Rodgers’ reaction to the firing of quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt or the termination of receiver Jordy Nelson, and that Robinson is either talking to people Womens Wilson Ramos Jersey who are lying about knowing what Rodgers thinks or engaging in flat-out fabrication.

If Rodgers is going to tuck a claim of fake news into a laundry list of funny hash tags, he needs to be more clear with his message. And his message is that Robinson is telling a lie about Rodgers.

Miles originally joined the Jets in 2013 as an undrafted free agent out of California (PA). He played 13 games last season as a core special teams player, leading the team with 26 special teams tackles and serving as Lachlan Edwards’ punt protector.

So, this is a Pro Day of sorts for Webb, a 2017 third-round pick by the previous Giants regime. Shurmur attended the Pro Days of Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold in Los Angeles and Josh Allen in Laramie, Wyo. Next, he will get his first up-close look at Webb.

We’re always looking for a young, generational quarterback 鈥?yeah, that’s the urge, Shurmur said. I do know this, I’ve seen Eli in the building almost every day here in the offseason, he’s the fittest, healthiest 37-year-old I’ve been around. So I’m looking forward to working with him, as well as Davis Webb.

Shurmur is already impressed with Webb’s diligence, noting he sees him in the team facility virtually every day, following Manning around. Next, Shurmur pored over Webb’s college tape and compared it with the top quarterbacks in the draft.

I went back, as I was watching this year’s quarterbacks I went back and watched his college film to compare him to the guys coming out this year, I went back and revisited my notes from doing him [as the Vikings offensive coordinator] a year ago 鈥?we had him rated highly, Shurmur said. The unfortunate thing for me is there’s just not a lot of him playing football in a Giants helmet, which would have been a good thing for me to see moving forward. That is what it is, but I’m looking forward to working with him, for sure.

Big games by Davis, Mirotic allow Pelicans to hold off Trail Blazers in Game 1

The New Orleans Pelicans needed to sweat out the franchise’s first playoff win since 2011 — the first under the Pelicans moniker they adopted before the 2013-14 season and the first of Anthony Davis’ career.
Nike NFL Desmond Trufant Red Jersey Men's Elite: #21 Atlanta Falcons Home Vapor Untouchable
The last time New Orleans reached the postseason, in 2014-15, the Pelicans led the eventual champion Golden State Warriors by 20 points at the start of the third quarter of Game 3 only to lose the game in overtime and eventually get swept. Game 1 of New Orleans’ series with the Portland Trail Blazers looked as if it might be d茅j脿 vu.

Up 19 late in the third quarter, the Pelicans allowed the Blazers to cut the lead to just one point in the final minute with two opportunities to take the lead. New Orleans’ defense came up big both times, forcing a CJ McCollum turnover and a Damian Lillard miss. Then, after two Davis free throws, Jrue Holiday blocked Pat Connaughton’s layup to seal a 97-95 victory Saturday night at the Moda Center.

Ultimately, New Orleans got enough from its best Alex Avila Jersey players. Davis, who averaged 31.5 points in the series sweep by Golden State in 2014, had 35 points on 14-of-26 shooting this time around — along with 14 rebounds and 4 blocks. Holiday, given the primary defensive assignment on Lillard, also found enough energy to score 21 points at the other end. And Nikola Mirotic added a double-double of his own alongside Davis, knocking down four 3-pointers, blocking four shots and grabbing 11 rebounds.

The Minnesota Timberwolves kept their first playoff game in 14 years close, but Houston had too much from MVP front-runner James Harden and lob mate Clint Capela.

Towns was held to fewer than eight points only twice in the regular season, when he averaged 21.3 points per game. He attempted nine or fewer field goals in 11 games, an alarming number for a 7-footer with Towns’ wide array of skills, capable of scoring as a post-up player, as a spot-up shooter and off the dribble.

Thibodeau especially emphasized getting out in transition when asked how Towns should be more active against a Rockets’ defensive scheme that makes him a focal point.
Limited Mens Matt Forte Jersey
You run the floor, Thibodeau said. Kick the ball out, repost, keep moving around, search it out, get to the offensive board. You’ve got to sprint around. You learn when teams are double-teaming you — that’s what you have to do. You have to make the right play. You also have to get to positions in which it’s difficult for them to double-team you. Transition’s a big part of that. You’ve got to run the floor.

With the NFL draft two weeks away, the Patriots have been connected to Louisville QB Lamar Jackson.

Tom Brady, or whoever mans his social media accounts, seems to be a fan of the quarterback who could some day replace him.

On Wednesday, the NFL Network published an Instagram image of Jackson and Patriots coach Bill Belichick, with a quote from analyst Bucky Brooks.

I believe after watching Deshaun Watson tear up his defense, he said, ‘I want a player like Lamar Jackson,’ Brooks said.

Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders posted a comment on the picture supporting Jackson, to which Brady’s account replied, [Jackson is] a beast!!!! followed by a thumbs-up emoji.

Of Gettleman’s 28 picks with the Panthers, 14 were defensive players, 13 were offensive players and his very last selection, at No. 233 overall Craig Anderson Womens Jersey last year, was for a kicker, Harrison Butker. Gettleman has taken six defensive backs, five defensive linemen, five running backs, four offensive linemen, three linebackers, two wide receivers, two tight ends and the one kicker. He didn’t pick a single quarterback, though he inherited Cam Newton, the No. 1 pick in 2011.

In his first draft for the Panthers, Gettleman sent a message and attracted a share of skepticism when he used his first two picks on defensive tackles, Lotulelei and Kawann Short.

The Cubs are pushing their rotation back a second day with Tyler Chatwood — originally scheduled to pitch Sunday against Atlanta — starting Tuesday and Jon Lester going Wednesday. St. Louis’ Adam Wainwright will have his start moved back a day to Tuesday. But the Cardinals will go with Luke Weaver instead of Michael Wacha on Wednesday.

The postponement was the third on the Cubs’ first homestand of the season — and second in as many days. Sunday’s series finale against Atlanta got pushed back to May 14 because of rain.

Kids Marcus Allen Jersey There were 21 postponements in the majors through Sunday.

The Cubs were hoping to get Anthony Rizzo (lower back tightness) back from the 10-day disabled list on Monday. But the postponement delayed the three-time All-Star’s return.

The Cardinals activated infielder Jedd Gyorko (strained right hamstring) and reliever Luke Gregerson (strained left hamstring) and optioned right-hander Mike Mayers and infielder Yairo Munoz to Triple-A Memphis.

NFL wants special investigator to look into concussion settlement fraud

The NFL is seeking the appointment of a special investigator to address what it claims is widespread fraud of its concussion settlement with former players — another step in a growing feud between the sides.
Men's Colorado Avalanche #14 Rene Robert Reebok Blue Third Premier NHL Jersey
In a filing Friday to the U.S. District Court of Eastern Pennsylvania, the league said nearly half the claims it has received have been red-flagged for audit. Of that, more than 400 Aaron Dell Youth jersey have been rejected after an independent claim administrator found them to be fraudulent.

To date, more than 20,000 former players are part of the class eligible to share in a settlement that is uncapped but could approach $1 billion over its 65-year life. The settlement has approved 377 awards, according to its website, and is committed to more than $411 million in monetary awards.

Latavius Murray Youth Jersey But the process has been slower than expected because of fraud, according to the NFL. Among the examples listed in the league’s claim:

Jalen Ramsey Youth Jersey Christopher Seeger, the lead attorney for the players, said Friday in a statement that the appointment of a special investigator would be appropriate. But he warned that the NFL shouldn’t use the issue of fraud as an excuse to withhold payments to deserving players.

We have previously expressed concerns about potentially fraudulent claims and agree the appointment of a special investigator is appropriate, Seeger said. However, we will not allow this small number of claims to be used as an excuse by the NFL to deny payment to legitimately injured former players. Unlike other NFL benefits programs, this settlement is overseen by the court, and the League cannot escape its responsibility. We will make sure that former NFL players and their families receive every benefit they are entitled to under this agreement.

Basketball Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, former figure skater Tonya Harding and Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman are among the athletes — past and present — who will compete on Season 26 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, it was announced Friday.

Wild deny Sharks home ice for 1st round with 6-3 win

He added, I think we’ve all got great intentions and want to do well out there, and we care about playing defense. That’s the thing.

It’s more so knowing what we have to do strategically to do it.

The Warriors have been plagued by injuries to key players and are 7-9 since March 9.

Authentic Youth Wilt Chamberlain Jersey Kerr praised his squad after Saturday’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans.

It was noted to Kerr that his postgame comments Saturday were kind and gentle compared to two days prior — and then he was asked whether kind and gentle could be the title of a future memoir.

No, my wife would have the title for my memoir, Kerr said with a laugh. She uses it on me sometimes at home. To paraphrase a poem, I think it was a British poet [John Dryden], maybe in the 18th century: ‘Beware the fury of a patient man.’ And she’s right. I’m extremely patient. But sometimes, a clipboard must break.

While the Wild were locked into the third seed in the Central Division, the Sharks needed one point to finish second in the Pacific and open the playoffs at home. Instead, San Jose lost for the fifth time in the final six games and will be forced to hit the road to start the playoffs against Anaheim in the first meeting between the rivals since the Ducks upset the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Sharks in 2009.

Kids Korbinian Holzer Jersey Karson Kuhlman had a goal and an assist, and the Bulldogs beat Notre Dame 2-1 on Saturday night to win the school’s second NCAA hockey championship.

The Bulldogs, who lost in last year’s final and were the last team invited to this year’s tournament, held on to beat Notre Dame for the men’s championship. They were the only non-Big Ten team in the Frozen Four.

Andrew Oglevie scored and Cale Morris made 33 saves for Notre Dame (28-10-2), winless in two national title games. The Irish lost to Boston College in 2008.

They became that team of destiny that you’re always hoping to be at the end of the year, Notre Dame coach Jeff Jackson said.

Minnesota Duluth lost to Denver in last year’s championship. The Bulldogs had seven seniors on that team, and then three underclassmen departed early for the NHL, including their starting goaltender.

Butler suggested the Patriots probably would have won if he played. He led New England in defensive snaps during the regular season, but in what proved to be his final game with the Patriots, he wasn’t on the field in the Super Bowl.

I never missed a game. Never missed practice or anything like that. Would we have won if I played? Probably. Maybe. I’m not sure, Butler said during an episode of SI: Under the Cover, via NESN. I would say we were short about one or two plays and I saw a couple plays out there I could have made.

Following the Super Bowl, there was speculation as to why Butler had been benched, but neither Butler nor coach Bill Belichick would open up about the incident. Butler was listed on the Patriots’ injury report with an illness the week before the Super Bowl and arrived in Minnesota one day after the team.

The only explanation Butler previously shared was when speaking with reporters after he signed a five-year contract with the Titans earlier this month. He said he never got a reason and wasn’t as locked in as (he) should be.

The league anticipates it will determine and announce the location of both drafts during its spring meeting from May 21-23 in Atlanta.

Butch Spyridon, the president and CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp., said the success of the Titans’ uniform unveiling Wednesday night can only aid the city’s efforts to land the NFL draft.

Given the fact that Melvin had never played at that level before, the Colts were tentative in locking up the journeyman to a long-term deal. The market didn’t find Melvin that sort of contract, but he did get an opportunity to play on a contender in signing a one-year, $6.5 million deal with Oakland, where he’ll likely start across from 2017 first-round pick Gareon Conley in a new-look Raiders secondary. It’s a relatively low-risk move for the Raiders, but given that Melvin will hit free agency after this season regardless, it’s also a low-reward opportunity.
