McDaniels was being reported as a finalist for the position as early as Jan. 14.

Temperatures and wind chill in the 20s Thursday morning couldn’t keep throngs of Eagles fans from lining Philadelphia streets for the team’s Super Bowl championship parade.

Schools and government buildings, along with businesses, shut down for the affair, which celebrates the Eagles’ first Super Bowl title, a stunning 41-33 victory over the Patriots on Sunday.

The parade began at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue and concluding at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (a.k.a. “the Rocky steps”).

When the parade was over, the players came down the steps in celebration, many of them holding their phones and cameras out to video the crowd.

To the contrary, they spoke collectively and individually after the big win Sunday over the Patriots about how unified they were as a team, along various fronts, at the exact same time some of them confirmed that they had no intention of being “honored” at the White House or of curtailing their activities, much less stopping them.

The lesson, then, should be that in groups as random as the hundred or so personalities in an NFL locker room, everyonehave different views and varied levels of engagement with society and the larger world outside of football … and still coalesce in the game that not only pays them well, but also constantly demands so much physically, mentally and emotionally.

“A quarterback going out on a route?” Foles told reporters after the game. “I was pumped to go over there and talk to Doug [Pederson], and we agreed on it. Like I said, we worked on it for a long time, and we executed it perfectly. That’s probably the best it has looked. So, we hit it at the right time.”

The Colts fired Chuck Pagano on Dec. 31. That was 37 days ago. That was 23 days ago. Obviously McDaniels had other matters to consider during that time. As the Patriots’ OC, it was his job to conjure ideas on how to move the ball past the Titans and the Jaguars and ultimately, though not quite successfully enough, the Eagles.

So the question of whether to leave New England to take over the Colts could not consume his waking hours, but let’s not be coy about this. It’s obvious that wasn’t necessary. He had made up his mind. The Colts stopped searching weeks ago. They were required, under league rules, to wait until the Patriots were finished losing to the Eagles before making it official.nike-youth-cardinals-037

‘Papa John’ abruptly out after blasting NFL leadership

The pizza chain’s outspoken founder and chief executive, John Schnatter 锟斤拷 who got caught in a controversy last month after he publicly criticized NFL leadership over the national anthem protests 锟斤拷 is stepping down on Jan. 1, the company said late Thursday.
Papa Authentic Michael Jordan Jersey John’s said Schnatter will be replaced as CEO by its 43-year-old chief operating officer, Steve Ritchie, who has been with Papa John’s for 21 years.

Papa John’s, the official pizza sponsor of the NFL, ended up apologizing last month after white supremacists praised Schnatter’s comments.

But Ritchie’s role could be short-lived, given Schnatter’s history. In 2005, during another dip in sales, Schnatter stepped down as CEO, only to take over the helm again five years later.

Scully is the latest to weigh in on the controversial protests, which have spawned imitators, derision and praise. The players who will not stand 锟斤拷 led by Colin Kaepernick, now out of the NFL 锟斤拷 repeatedly have said the protests have nothing to do with the military and everything to do with racism, but many cannot separate the flag from the armed services.

McNair’s comments reminded a number of athletes of Donald Sterling, who was forced to sell the Los Angeles Clippers because of racist comments a few years ago. Richard Sherman of the Seahawks believes players would boycott if they had guaranteed contracts. I appreciate when people like that show who they really are, Sherman said of McNair’s comments.

Peters wants to talk about Trump’s renewed public assault on the league after Womens Sammie Coates Jersey Lynch, in Sunday’s game in Mexico, would not stand for The Star-Spangled Banner, for which he hasn’t risen all season, but stood for Mexico’s anthem. Trump called the act by the Raiders running back great disrespect! and implored the NFL to suspend him for remainder of season next time.

Peters, who grew up in Oakland with Lynch, raised a fist during the anthem last season and has mostly taken a seat this year.

I ain’t trying to get into a back and forth conversation of me trying to prove that I’m not being disrespectful or that I am being disrespectful toward the American flag, Peters told the Kansas City Star last month. Man 锟斤拷 come on, man. I’m an American, bruh. I’m an African-American that was born in this wonderful country that we all can live in. How about we start all protecting each (expletive) other and come together, you feel me? It will be better for it.

The suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, names Eric Weinberger, a former executive producer at NFL Network and current president of Bill Simmons’s media group, as well as Marshall Faulk and Heath Evans, retired football players who provide on-air commentary for the network.

According to the complaint, Weinberger pressed his crotch against her shoulder and asked her to touch it, in addition to sending her several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts and telling her she was put on earth to pleasure me.

Johnson’s average draft position (ADP) saw him selected around the 100th pick.

The national debate about anthem protests, patriotism and unity revolving around the NFL and its players was back on vivid display here Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium.

In the backcourt, Mario Chalmers (shoulder) is questionable, but Andrew Harrison (shoulder) is probable and could get more minutes than usual if Chalmers sits. Wayne Selden (available in 99.5 percent of leagues) took advantage of the extra opportunity on Saturday, popping for 31 points (11-16 FG, 4-4 FT), 5 3-pointers, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 TO in 26.4 minutes of action.

Duke Johnson, RB, Browns: So he was either chosen as a handcuff to Isaiah Crowell, or in the more likely scenario, was taken at that point in the draft where most owners are just hoping to acquire production. Crowell owners have to be disappointed (ADP of 38) following a delightful 2016 season that saw him nearly eclipse the 1,000-yard mark while hauling in 40 receptions for 319 yards. Instead, Johnson has emerged, tallying at least 60 yards from scrimmage the past three weeks.

In Weeks 3 and 4, Johnson has only six carries but two touchdowns; his real emergence this season has been as a receiver with 20 receptions for 207 yards. Some pundits are really smitten with Johnson.

“Flag and country first. Football second,” said Rose, adding that he is a Baltimore County police officer. “I’m here. I have season tickets. I called the Ravens and I asked them. I said, ‘Is anybody gonna take a knee this week?’ They said they’re not announcing what the Ravens are doing. I said, ‘Well, this will be the last game I go to if someone takes a knee.’ I’m gonna wear my flag stuff, show my support for the country, support for the flag. I do have my Ravens jersey on, in case no one does.”

Rose said he has family members who are in the military and who are fellow police officers. He’s “all right” if players want to protest, he said, but they should “get in their Hummers, get in their Bentleys” and do it elsewhere.chargers_016

If defense wins championships, then the football Gods will likely have to flip a coin to see who wins this game.

This game would match the AFC’s top-ranked defense against the NFC’s top-ranked defense in a game that might as well be sudden death because one score might be all we see if these two teams play. Minnesota and Jacksonville were the only two teams in the NFL in 2017 that surrendered less than 17 points and 290 yards per game on the season.

If we can’t get the NFL’s top ranked offense (Patriots) against the NFL’s best defense (Vikings) in the Super Bowl, then this game would be a nice consolation. Saints-Jaguars would give us the NFL’s second-best offense against the league’s second-best defense, which would be almost fitting for Drew Brees, who’s finished second best in NFL MVP voting three times.
Elite Mens Detroit Lions Jersey
Oddsmakers have imagined it and they don’t think it would be pretty, making the Titans a 10.5-point underdog, which is the biggest point spread of any of the 16 Super Bowl matchups that could happen. The one big reason this game would be worth watching would be to see if the Vikings can win their first Super Bowl in team history, and not Womens Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey only that, but do it on their home field. The Vikings and Bills are tied for the worst Super Bowl record in NFL history (0-4).

This is one of the games that would have the potential to turn into one of the most bizarrely entertaining Super Bowls ever. The only bigger mismatch than Nick Foles against the Jaguars defense would be Blake Bortles against the Eagles defense. The Jaguars 10-3 win over the Bills would probably be considered a shootout compared to what might happen if the Jags and Eagles play: We might only see three points the entire game, we could see a kicker win MVP. I’m getting so excited, I’m actually starting to hope this happens.

Elite Mens Calle Rosen Jersey Most of America should probably be hoping this game doesn’t happen, because if we get an Atlanta-Tennessee Super Bowl less than a month after a Georgia-Alabama national title game, everyone in the South will likely spend the next 10 years talking about how much better the South is at everything.

Ten NFL draft prospects with most riding on 2018 Senior Bowl

A favorite among some NFL scouts and general managers due to his physical attributes and upside, Allen struggled to move the ball through most of his junior season and completed just 56 percent of his passes over his final two seasons at Wyoming. He had a particularly tough time against Power Five competition (career TD-INT ratio of 1-8 in three career games). At the Senior Bowl, teams will want to see if he can be accurate throwing to an all-star group of receivers. If he’s able to handle the plays calls and make the throws, in addition to showing off his mobility and superior arm strength, Allen could alleviate concerns about how he’ll translate to the next level.

The woes David Backes Authentic Jersey of the Browns are not primarily a coaching issue. They are primarily a roster-construction issue. The Moneyball approach to building an NFL team is failing miserably, at least as it’s being applied in Cleveland. No NFL team has gone so far out of its way, it seems, to avoid drafting a franchise quarterback as the Browns, who traded away opportunities to choose Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson in the past two drafts. The front office couldn’t land Jimmy Garoppolo. It couldn’t manage to file the trade documentation in time to complete an agreed-upon deal for AJ McCarron. This isn’t all Jackson’s doing. It isn’t even primarily Jackson’s doing. But with a team that is 1-27 the past two seasons, it’s difficult to argue that any key football decision-maker deserves to stay.

Joseph is a rookie head coach, and front office roster architect John Elway bears the responsibility for the Broncos’ quarterback woes beginning with Peyton Manning’s final season. But it’s Elway’s call, and he certainly isn’t going to fire himself. It will be interesting to see how much patience he has with Joseph after accusing the team that Joseph coaches of being soft.

Now, he’s studied every angle of this battle. He’s found statistical trends when each team has the ball that is pointing him in one direction with confidence, and he’s sharing it over only at SportsLine.

Sharrif Floyd Elite Jersey White knows Jacksonville’s success starts with a defense that ranked No. 2 in the NFL in points allowed (16.8) and yards allowed (286.1). The Jaguars’ offense, led by rookie RB Leonard Fournette, is No. 2 in rushing. QB Blake Bortles has been efficient and the team’s plus-10 turnover ratio ranks fifth.

If that happens, the Bengals could put a first-, second- or fifth-round tender on him, which means a team would have to give them a draft pick if they Authentic O. J. Howard Jersey were to sign McCarron in March. However, if McCarron wins his case, then he would become an unrestricted free agent and he’d be free to sign with any team.

And just when the Steelers looked like they were clawing back after a 23-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown and another drive in Jacksonville territory, disaster struck again. The Jaguars forced a fumble on a sack of Roethlisberger, and Smith scooped it up for a 50-yard return touchdown.

Facing a fourth-and-11 in the final minute of the first half, the desperation for points for the Steelers was evident by a decision to go for it.

It paid off in a big way. Roethlisberger perfectly feathered a ball over the top of the Jaguars’ defense for a 36-yard touchdown to Martavis Bryant that made the score a manageable 28-14 at halftime.

NFL playoffs 2018: Conference championship odds, point spreads

Underdogs are either 7-1 or 6-2 against the point spread in the 2018 NFL playoffs, depending on what spread bettors got in the Saints-Vikings game. The Patriots were the only favorite to cover handily. They routed the Titans in the AFC divisional round Saturday as a 14-point favorite.

Even though the weather in Philadelphia is expected to be excellent for the game (partly cloudy, high of 53 degrees, temps in the 40s during the game), the over-under is low at 38. The Falcons and Eagles combined for 25 points in their game, while the Saints and Vikings combined for 53 in Minnesota’s domed stadium.

The conference champions will play in Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4 in Minneapolis. Sportsbook.ag lists the Patriots as the futures favorite to win the big game at 10/11 (-110), followed by the Vikings at 2/1 (+200), the Eagles at 7/1 (+700) and the Jaguars at 8/1 (+800).

Vrabel, 42, takes over a Titans team that went 9-7 in 2017 and 20-21 from 2015-17 under Mike Mularkey, who agreed to part ways with Tennessee on Monday after the team’s divisional round loss to the Patriots.

I am excited to get to work and that work starts now, Vrabel said in a statement. We want to build a culture around winning, competitiveness and toughness. Everything we do is going to be geared towards winning and being physical. We want to prepare our players so they know what to do, which will allow them to play fast and aggressive.

Why? People are human. They want recognition for greatness. When a team wins and a person contributes, he wants more.

And that defensive focus will also allow space for his wide receivers to thrive. Gronkowski demands defensive coordinators plan around him, which will lessen the burden on Cooks, Amendola, and Hogan.

If the Chargers can actually manage to stay healthy for once, this offense has a chance to be really, really good in 2017. Rivers is the most underrated passer of his era and Gates can still make plays, but they also have a good offensive line, a deep, versatile corps of wide receivers (Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams, Travis Benjamin, Dontrelle Inman, and rookie Mike Williams if he’s healthy), a budding star at running back (Melvin Gordon), and a very good No. 2 tight end (Hunter Henry).
