Terrell Owens blames Jason Garrett for Cowboys’ problems

In the last several years, the Dallas Cowboys have struggled to break through to be true Super Bowl contenders. The team has either had their disappointing shortcoming in the regular season or falling just shy in the playoffs.

Soon-to-be inducted Hall of Famer Terrell Owens stated in a recent interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio that he believes the problem hasn’t been the players but rather the coaching staff led by head coach Jason Garrett.

When you look at since I left in ’09, nothing has really changed. You think about the great players that are coming in and out of that organization, it can’t just be all players. Wade Phillips was the head coach when I was there.

The second-leading rusher in team history (12,036 yards), he played in two Super Bowls and set a record with a 99-yard TD run in 1982.

The only player to ever win Super Bowl MVP honors (Super Bowl V) for the losing team, Howley got his ring the following year. He was an all-pro for five consecutive seasons (1966-70), tops among all Cowboys linebackers.

Earlier this month, The New York Times detailed the misogynistic and predatory behavior that some Washington Redskins cheerleaders allegedly were subjected to on multiple occasions. 

The Washington Redskins countered some of the more lewd claims, which included details from a 2013 trip to an adults-only resort in Costa Rica. Cheerleaders were asked to go topless and wear body paint with Redskins sponsors and FedEx Field suite owners all men watching, according to five unnamed cheerleaders who attended the photo shoot.

At long last, 50 Cent can breathe a sigh of relief. He might not have the worst first pitch ever. Akbar Gbaja-Biamila is challenging him for that spot after a horrendous spike into the ground Thursday afternoon at Citizen’s Bank Park in Philadelphia ahead of the Phillies ’ matchup with the Giants. Who is Akbar Gbaja-Biamila?

I would personally like to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers as Athens-Clarke County Police Department worked very hard to identify the individual responsible for this, Smith said on Twitter. It was definitely huge. I would also like to thank many of you that spread information on various social media outlets.

Due to the prompt attention by the Athens-Clarke County Police Department, I was able to recover most of my items as well as the individual being identified. Just like to thank you guys so much.

The Eagles, of course, currently have the best insurance policy possible in Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, so they have the benefit of being cautious with Wentz’s timeline if they choose to be. Then again, it still feels possible that general manager Howie Roseman — fully aware that Foles’ value will never be higher than it is right now — could trade away his famous backup by September. That only happens if Wentz’s rehab continues to trend in an upward direction.

The most likely scenario: Wentz is on the field and active against the Falcons for the Thursday night opener, with Foles on the sideline and ready if things go sideways.

The Jon Gruden Show goes on…

Gruden’s decision to come out of coaching retirement, sign a guaranteed $100 million deal with the Raiders, then radically overhaul Oakland’s roster has certainly brought out a strong sense of schadenfreude from within the football cognoscenti, hasn’t it? It seems like everyone either wants, or expects, Chucky to fail.

Bret Bielema has a role on Patriots’ staff

Bret Bielema was fired as the head coach at Arkansas in November and hasn’t officially taken a job anywhere since then, but unofficially he’s been working with the Patriots, and it appears he is heading toward a permanent role on the staff.
#33 Nike Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Women's Green NBA - Backer Milwaukee Bucks Pullover Hoodie
Game Cortez Kennedy Jersey Bielema was working with the Patriots in the run-up to the NFL draft, and Field Yates of ESPN reports that Bielema has continued to work with the team and will be involved in coaching this weekend’s rookie minicamp.

The often-secretive Patriots have not announced anything about Bielema joining the coaching staff, so it’s unclear what role Womens Telvin Smith Jersey he is filling.

Bielema was head coach at Arkansas for five years and at Wisconsin for seven years. Prior to that he was defensive coordinator at Wisconsin, co-defensive coordinator at Kansas State and linebackers coach at Iowa. He is likely to have some role on the defensive side of the ball, where the Patriots have not announced a replacement for the departed defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. Brian Flores is expected to call the defensive plays for the Patriots.

The Emmy Award-winning Markman knows of what he speaks. He’s the czar of ESPN’s NFL Draft coverage, as well as such football studio shows as Sunday NFL Countdown, Monday Night Countdown and NFL Live.

Ross started his career behind the eight ball, missing Cincinnati’s entire offseason program and the majority of training camp following shoulder surgery. Any slim chance of joining the Week 1 receiver rotation was eliminated when he injured his knee in the preseason finale.

His few opportunities at playing time over the season’s first three months were sabotaged by rookie mistakes such as fumbling and quitting on a route. Before he worked his way out of the doghouse, his season was ended by an injury that required surgery to the other shoulder.
Game Jalin Marshall Jersey
In other words, Murphy’s law had Ross in the crosshairs from the moment he broke Chris Johnson’s combine record in the 40-yard dash.

As Ross insisted earlier this offseason, though, this is a new year with a lot of new things coming . One of those new things involves working on his craft with Houshmandzadeh, one of the premier route runners of his generation.

You get to this level, everybody can run, Houshmandzadeh said of Ross last month. Your technique and ability to separate has to come to the forefront because you can’t beat everybody with speed.

Panthers claim running back Elijah Hood off waivers

For the second day in a row, the Panthers Authentic Marcus Martin Jersey added a running back.
Youth Ben Smith Authentic Green Adidas Jersey: NHL Toronto Maple Leafs #18 Salute to Service
Via Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, the Panthers claimed running back Elijah Hood off waivers from the Raiders.

To watch Sid and Guentzel is to watch a master magician share his tricks with an apprentice. He does this because Guentzel has provided Crosby with a dependable, offensively creative winger who does what Crosby values more than anything. He competes hard. That’s the biggest thing. And he’s got a ton of skill and hockey sense and all the things that come with it. But he goes to different areas to score. He battles hard in front of the net. He wins puck battles. He’s able to generate in a lot of different ways, and it’s great to see him get rewarded, said Crosby.

Guentzel has learned from Crosby, on the ice and in practice. You just see his focus. It starts in practice, and his attention to details. He sets the tone for us, Guentzel said.

Included in the story are allegations that the cheerleaders had their passports taken away upon arrival in the country and that male sponsors and FedEx Field suite holders were invited to observe a photo shoot that included topless women and others in body paint. There is also an allegation that the director of the squad told nine cheerleaders that they were to go out with those sponsors to a night club on an evening when team officials were also present.

Team president Bruce Allen issued a statement in response to the report on Thursday.

Limited Mens Greg Lloyd Jersey The Redskins organization is very concerned by the allegations involving our cheerleaders in the recent New York Times article. We are immediately looking into this situation and want to express how serious we take these allegations. Based on the dialogue we鈥檝e had with a number of current and former cheerleaders over the past 48 hours, we鈥檝e heard very different first-hand accounts that directly contradict many of the details of the May 2 article. I can promise that once we have completed looking into this matter, if it is revealed that any of our employees acted inappropriately, those employees will face significant repercussions.

Broncos veterans fine with passing their knowledge to younger teammates

The reality of life in the NFL as a veteran player is that there is always a younger player that is trying to take your job.

But if you want to have success as a team, players must learn how to coexist and find a way to maximize their talents collectively even if it may come at the expense of a player’s personal job security. However, the Denver Broncos seem far more open to working with and teaching their younger counterparts than Ben Roethlisberger is with his new rookie backup Mason Rudolph.

“If you want to win, you’re going to help your young guys,” Stewart said. “That’s how I look at it. I’m always willing to help any way I can with those guys and give them any information I can. It doesn’t do me any good holding anything back because we won’t get better as a team. I think me helping them as much as I can, as well as the coaches, that’s going to make us that much better.”

“If he does have to miss games, he will be missed,” defensive end Alex Okafor said, via Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “You can’t replace anybody like that. He’s one of the best backs in the league. He’s dynamic, huge in the run and passing game. It’s going to be hard to cope with, but if anybody could find a way to do it, it’s going to be Sean Payton and Drew Brees. I’m sure we’ll be all right.”

Ingram is coming off the best season of his seven-year career in New Orleans. He rushed for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns and caught 58 passes for 416 yards. All four marks were career-highs.

While he will be missed for the first four games, the Saints know he’ll be coming back fresh in October as well with plenty of time to make an impact on the Saints’ 2018 campaign. He will be allowed to take part in all offseason activities, training camp and preseason games as well before sitting out.

Patriots have made more trades than picks thus far

The Patriots traded out of the fourth round, getting the Lions’ third-round pick in 2019. That’s six trades New England has made, drafting only three players thus far.
Youth Tyus Bowser Limited Black Nike Jersey: NFL Baltimore Ravens #54 2016 Salute to Service
Apparently, the end of the first round is all about great defensive teams getting better on defense while ignoring their offensive issues. First, the Jaguars added a defensive tackle to cut the time opposing quarterbacks have to throw from 0.0004 to 0.0003 seconds. Now the Vikings鈥攚hose offensive line is really spotty鈥攁re setting themselves up with even more secondary depth.

Mike Hughes is a tough, alert underneath defender who gets a quick break on the ball. He’s dynamic with the football in his hands. He lacks ideal size but compensates with toughness and quick feet.

Hughes transferred from North Carolina to a JUCO to Central Florida amid a sexual assault allegation, which only became public one week before the draft. No charges were filed, and Hughes has been forthright with teams. He was suspended for an unrelated incident in 2015.

Nick Easton Jersey Bottom line: Barkley will make the Giants better immediately, take pressure off Eli Manning and help the work-in-progress offensive line find itself. But while Barkley is more of a Todd Gurley than a Richardson, it’s important to note that Pat Shurmur coached Richardson to a grinding 3.6-yard-per-carry season in 2012, and that Gurley proved in 2016 that even a great running back can only do so much when the system around him goes kablooey. If Manning’s play continues to slip, the line doesn’t jell or the defense doesn’t rebound quickly, the Giants will wish they went in a different direction with this pick.

Hurst, the top-rated player on Mel Kiper’s big board heading into Dee Ford Authentic Jersey the final day of the draft, was the second Michigan player taken. His teammate, Mason Cole, was selected in the third round, 97th overall, by the Arizona Cardinals.

Hurst’s selection ends a hard slide down draft boards after he was flagged for a heart condition at the NFL combine in February. Hurst, considered by many to be a first-round talent, was later cleared to participate in Michigan’s pro day in March.

Elite Jay Cutler Youth Alternate Aqua Green Nike Jersey - #6 NFL Miami Dolphins Vapor Untouchable
This was already a great, fun draft… but things really went to another level when the Pats got that second first-rounder from the Rams. All of a sudden, we’ve added Bill Belichick madness and Tom Brady intrigue into the proceedings. Delicious! New England has needs after the offseason exodus of several productive veterans, but finding a Brady successor has to be near the top of the list for Belichick, especially with the GOAT apparently now waffling on the whole I’m-going-to-play-until-I-can-get-the-seniors-discount-at-the-Arclight mindset.

The most logical answer: Sam Darnold is the only quarterback they like and they don’t think he’ll be there after the first pick. But what happens if the Browns take Darnold, the Giants pick Barkley or Chubb, and the Jets land a QB (likely Josh Rosen or Baker Mayfield) who turns into a star? Things could get very uncomfortable, very quickly, for new Giants GM Dave Gettleman.

That leaves just two unsigned restricted free agents around the league, Falcons cornerback Ricardo Allen and Chiefs defensive end Rakeem Nunez-Roches.

Until there’s a law stating people putting in a false claim of rape or domestic violence, these things will continue to happen over and over again.

Early Monday morning, David Irving girlfriend’s hacked his Twitter account and posted a series of tweets that accused the Dallas Cowboys DL of domestic violence.

The Seattle Seahawks’ Legion of Boom is in a state of flux, and there is particular concern over the playing future of safety Kam Chancellor. After suffering a significant neck injury this past season, the former Pro Bowler’s status for the 2018 season — or any subsequent season, for that matter — is an open question.

But Seattle should have an up-or-down answer by this summer.

Seahawks GM John Schneider said Chancellor will undergo tests in late June or early July in order to determine whether he will be able to keep playing football.

Josh Rosen is one of the most cerebral quarterback prospects in the last few drafts and has seen his draft stock fall slightly over the last month as evaluators Babe Herman Jersey question his work ethic and attitude.

The Raiders improved by four games in the standings the last time Jon Gruden coached his first season in Oakland. Twenty years later, the Raiders would love some deja vu to help them get closer ot the 12-4 team they were in 2016, not the disappointing 6-10 of17.

What will help Oakland is a favorable strength of schedule based on last season’s results. This season’s opponents went a combined 121-135 (.473). tied with Cincinnati’s schedule for third easiest.

Manning is accused of delivering to Steiner Sports two signed helmets, produced by Skiba, with a signed letter asserting that one helmet was game-used and signing the other game used.

Writes ESPN.com’s Darren Rovell: In what became the biggest bombshell of discovery in the trial, the plaintiffs found an email from Manning to Skiba asking if he could get him two helmets that could ‘can pass as game used.’

The trial is scheduled for May 14.

Milan Acquaah transferring, becomes 4th guard to leave Washington State

The exodus from the Washington State basketball program has continued, with guard Milan Acquaah announcing he will transfer.

Acquaah, a freshman guard, started nine times for Washington State and appeared in 30 of 31 games, averaging 4.9 points.

With Curry in the lineup this season, the Warriors went 41-10 while averaging 120.4 points per 100 possessions, which would be the best offensive rating over the past 20 seasons. With him off the floor, however, the Warriors were only 17-14 in the regular season and had an offensive efficiency that was right around the league average.

Although he is eager to rejoin his teammates in action after missing the past 15 games, Curry said he has to be wise about attempting to rush back. He said it’s imperative that he doesn’t come back prematurely.

“I’m trying to be smart about it,” he said. “That’s the biggest thing we’re learning. My knee two years ago, and this year, and ankle stuff and all that. I want to be out there. Obviously, I’m competitive. I want to be out there for my teammates. When we’re a full squad, we’re tough to beat, and I want to be out there in the fray with my guys. That’s what it’s about.”

Rhame was available for Friday night’s series opener against the Padres. He began the year with the Mets, recording one save and a 7.36 ERA in four appearances, before being optioned to the 51s on April 13.

Baumann appeared in one game for the Padres, allowing five runs, two earned, in one-third inning.

Oswalt made his major league debut on April 25 at St. Louis with 4 2/3 innings of relief.

Wall and Beal were held to a total of 3-for-12 shooting and a combined seven points in the fourth quarter on Wednesday. Their only points in the last nine minutes came when Beal made a 3-pointer with 16.2 seconds left after the game was out of reach.

The Wizards have won eight straight playoff games at home and Wall said they love their chances of forcing a Game 7. He just has to save his energy for the fourth quarter and get his teammates involved.

Wall said he may be able to stay fresh by letting other teammates run pick-and-rolls. The Wizards, though, will be without Otto Porter Jr., who is out indefinitely after undergoing a procedure on his leg Friday.

This 2018 quarterback class intrigues the Giants, but they view none of them as pound-the-table prospects 鈥?a scout’s description of what happens in the war room when lobbying hard for a must-have player. Use whatever word you prefer 鈥?transformative, generational 鈥?to describe what general manager Dave Gettleman requires out of the No. 2 pick in the draft.

Chubb cannot be discounted. His North Carolina State r茅sum茅 is impeccable. He plays a position of great need 鈥?where are the Giants getting a pass rush? 鈥?and he stands alone on an island, the draft’s one top-tier defensive end prospect. The Giants know they can get a starting-caliber running back in the second round 鈥?they really like Sony Michel of Georgia 鈥?and Gettleman is a build-from-the-inside-out thinker.

Justin Peters Kids Jersey I think there is a fine line between when it’s good for business and when that line is crossed and it can become bad for business, Tisch, the Giants’ co-owner and a top movie producer, said Monday.

Has Beckham crossed that line?

It’s not been too much yet, but I think because there’s so much conversation about him, I just want everyone to pull back and realize that we will negotiate when the time to negotiate comes.
