New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning didn’t take offense to coach Ben McAdoo’s blaming sloppy quarterback play for a delay-of-game penalty in Monday night’s 24-10 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Manning, a 14-year veteran, has been around long enough to realize this is part of the deal as an NFL quarterback, especially in New York.
Hey, you lose games, you only score 10 points, you deserve some criticism, Manning said during an interview on WFAN the day after the Giants’ offense struggled for the second straight week. Coach McAdoo knows I can handle it.
Maualuga, who was an eight-year starter for the Cincinnati Bengals, is close to working himself back into football shape.
In light of Timmons’ suspension, the Dolphins acquired linebacker Stephone Anthony in a trade with the New Orleans Saints. Miami is sending a 2018 fifth-round pick to New Orleans for Anthony, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported. Anthony was a first-round pick for New Orleans in 2015; he has not played yet this season because of an ankle injury.

Miami will travel to play the New York Jets (0-2) at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

Kareem Hunt picked up where he left off as a Toledo Rocket, and Alex Smith found his rocket arm. That was plenty to launch the Chiefs to Thursday night’s season-opening 42-27 upset of the Patriots.
As New England stops dreaming about an undefeated Super Bowl repeat and worries about its defense, Kansas City suddenly can be a lot more confident that it finally has the offensive firepower to win it all.
Authentic Kids Earl Mitchell Jersey Hunt on Thursday provided plenty of new juice on the field. But for Smith, there also was a source of fuel on the sideline — Patrick Mahomes.
Authentic Kids Theo Riddick Jersey The Steelers were held to 9 rushing yards in the first half and didn’t even run a play in Cleveland territory until after the two-minute warning. And that is what made those on the Browns to cover the first half line even more frustrated.
After allowing the Steelers to score a touchdown on a blocked punt, DeShone Kizer’s first career touchdown tied the game late in the first quarter. The score remained at 7-7 until Pittsburgh’s final drive of the half. In what would be the play that marked the beginning of the end for those on Cleveland, Antonio Brown caught a tipped Ben Roethlisberger pass and turned it into a 50-yard gain. Five plays later, Roethlisberger found Jesse James for a touchdown with less than minute left before halftime. Chris Boswell’s extra point put the Steelers up 14-7, giving those on the Browns a half-point loss.
Tony Romo’s NFL broadcasting career had a slightly awkward start.
CBS had the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback interview Phil Simms, the man he replaced, during Sunday’s pregame.
Mens Eli Rogers Jersey The league isn’t happy with Elliott’s plan to discredit his accuser in his appeal or the NFLPA’s role in it. While the record shows that the woman was dishonest at times, shifting blame to a victim is shameful, in the words of NFL Executive Vice President of Communications Joe Lockhart.
Mens Ryan Miller Jersey On the NFLPA side, it simply said the league is lying and isn’t leaking derogatory information about Elliott’s accuser to the media. This contentious back-and-forth could get even uglier before this whole thing is settled.
Elliott finally spoke to the media after his injunction was granted and his Cowboys beat the New York Giants in the team’s season opener. He said the injunction is a relief.
Just relieved from the fact that I finally get a fair trial, Elliott said, via Pro Football Talk.
Now Elliott, Jones, and everyone else just have to wait until the resolution of the court case to see what happens.
In another, he was rather ordinary, averaging 2.1 yards per carry, his third-worst single-game performance in his career, and 4.0 yards per touch, beneath his 4.4 average of 2015-16 combined, in a game that his Rams led handily and played against a mediocre Indianapolis Colts defense. Gurley snuck into the top 10 running backs in terms of ADP earlier in the week (before Ezekiel Elliott was granted his temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction that allows him to play and Hunt had his Thursday outburst), so let’s consider this a good start to his season yet not overreact.
While the rebuilding Browns have stockpiled draft choices in an effort to go young, the reloading Patriots have increasingly traded picks for veterans such as Kony Ealy, Brandin Cooks and Dwayne Allen. Ealy has already been released, but in an era in which limited practice opportunities work against player development, there’s a case to be made for adding proven NFL talent. The Browns drafted 14 players in 2016. They’ll be fortunate if more than a couple pan out.
Draft picks are becoming less valuable across the board, an exec said.
Picks are still valuable, of course, but if they are no longer sacred, another potential impediment to trades is diminished.
After Elliott filed his appeal, Goodell had the choice of hearing it himself or appointing a designee. He chose Henderson, who had previously presided over Greg Hardy’s and Adrian Peterson’s appeals. In Hardy’s case, Henderson knocked his suspension down from 10 games to four. Peterson’s suspension was upheld by Henderson.
A source told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that there were enormous inconsistencies with the 160-page investigation report from the NFL. Henderson denied a request from Elliott’s representatives to make the accuser available to testify at the appeal, and he also refused to provide a transcript or notes from interviews with the alleged victim. The appeal was extended to three days when the NFL decided to make an additional witness available to testify during the hearing.
After the appeal concluded, Clarence Hill of the Dallas Star-Telegram reported that NFL investigator Kia Roberts had recommended that Elliott not be suspended. Elliott’s attorneys filed a lawsuit with the federal district court in Plano, Texas, to overturn the suspension. The NFLPA also filed for a restraining order to put a stay on Elliott’s suspension until the legal process is complete.

Phillip Dorsett didn’t do much in the first two seasons of his NFL career, but the New England Patriots are still the clear winners of a trade with the Indianapolis Colts that sent the third-year receiver to New England in exchange for backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
Said Gase: If they tell us that they changed the game, we’ll just go with it.
Koetter hopes to have more information for his players during Wednesday’s team meeting. The Bucs have Monday afternoon off, as well as Tuesday. He hopes that if changes are made by the league that they are done with the players and their families in mind — and with regard to what happened with Hurricane Harvey.
These guys all have families. They all have people they care about, Koetter said. To think that those guys are just going to hop on a plane if there’s some kind of danger to their families and not be bothered by it, that would be foolish to think that way.
His inability to stay on the field will likely make it difficult for Cleveland to get much for him, because Haden comes with a contract that counts $14.4 million against the salary cap in 2017 and 2018. But the Browns may be able to convince a team to roll the dice and take a shot on his big talent.
Limited Womens Devin Taylor Jersey Erving, 25, could also be difficult to shop. The former first-round pick was beat for the right tackle job in Cleveland by 2016 third-round pick Shon Coleman, who has the benefit of being a draft pick during the Brown and Jackson era.

You know, Mamba Mentality. Thought I’d switch it up, Ball said last night, via SB Nation Lakers blog Silver Screen and Roll. You can wear whatever you want when you play for Big Baller Brand. It’s just nice to get out there and do that.
Antetokounmpo was an All-Star for the first time last season and led his team in every major stat category. He averaged 22.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.9 blocks, and 1.6 steals per game on the year.
Borje Salming Game Jersey Sure, as a Bucks fan, these comments could leave a bit of concern about Giannis’ future in Milwaukee. But overall, Bucks fans have nothing to worry about right now.
His loyalty tweet a few weeks ago — quoting a lyric by Kendrick Lamar — was pretty clearly only to quell rumors on his departure. He’d probably be in a better position had he said nothing at all. But still, there’s no real harm done from that tweet.
Antetokounmpo just signed a four-year extension with Milwaukee last season with no options or opt-outs included. Teams can pry all they want, but there’s no chance he’s going anywhere until the summer of 2021 at the earliest.
Because the salary cap was smaller than originally anticipated, teams have been stingier with their cash this offseason. Rose was expecting a big payday from some team, but last year’s spending frenzy isn’t going to come.
Tony Romo is now a father of three.
The Cowboys quarterback turned broadcaster on Wednesday tweeted a photo of the newest addition to his family, saying his wife, Candice, had given birth to the couple’s third son earlier that day.
Countless Americans are convinced Colin Kaepernick’s silent, non-violent protest against police brutality is nothing more than a cry for attention from a backup quarterback at best, and at worst a disrespectful attempt to debase the flag and the Star-Spangled Banner.
In any event, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback has fueled a national debate that reaches far beyond the football field.
Time magazine acknowledges as much by putting Kaepernick on the cover of its Oct. 3 issue.
Kaepernick, after initially sitting during the national anthem, has vowed to kneel in protest of what he described as the oppression of African Americans. Since then, a number of other NFL players have joined in support of his message, either by kneeling or holding up clenched fists, a form of protest seared in Olympic sports history by Tommie Smith and John Carlos.
Other athletes profiled in the article include Malcolm Jenkins of the Eagles, Devin McCourty of the Patriots and a commentary piece by Jelani Jenkins of the Dolphins.
Smith is the highest paid 30-plus-year-old corner in the NFL and is just one year into a deal that looked like a mistake in Week 1 of 2016. Smith should have fit into the group of players earning between $7 million and $7.5 million a year with around $12 million guaranteed and a $23 million three-year payout, not the $20 million guarantee and $30 million three-year payout Smith received.
LaVar Ball has said he could beat Michael Jordan in a game of one-on-one. But could he beat Michael Jackson in a dance-off? It’s hard to say, but with this new video of Lavar dancing to the King of Pop, the answer seems to be of course not.
He got the moves … well not really, but his body is definitely moving. And while Lavar is going in on the dance floor, the Ball children are trying to stay occupied. Lonzo is watching his dad dance cautiously from a distance, probably in an attempt to avoid flailing limbs, and LaMelo just straight up walks away.

And can you blame them? If my dad was dancing like this, I’d want to be anywhere else too.
However, this does make it seem like Lavar on Dancing with the Stars could be something that happens in the near future… and I’m here for that. Let’s see those Big Baller Brand dance shoes, Lavar!
Elite Mens Yasmany Tomas Jersey The other half also put on weight this summer, and not at In-N-Out Burger. Dragan Bender, last year’s No. 4 overall pick and Chriss’ frontcourt running mate of the future, also looks different this year. While Chriss projects to be the athletic rim-protector of the future, Bender is no pushover himself.
As much as McDonough believes in Chriss, he’s equally high on Bender, even after an injury-riddled rookie year limited Bender to just 43 games and 574 minutes. After all, the Suns’ GM had scouted Bender when he played for the Croatian junior national team. Bender’s passing ability for a player his size is what stood out most to Phoenix’s chief decision-maker.
The accuracy of how the players look compared to their real-life counterparts varies from player to player. I wasn’t expecting perfection here, though, so this isn’t much of a surprise.
It gives those people who don’t know about a historic park/playground some insight on the court they are stepping on. Those gamers asking What the hell is the Drew League? or Why is Rucker Park so famous? get their questions answered. It’s a fun lesson. The only downside about these loading screens is that I didn’t seem to have an option to skip them.
High future draft picks continue to have an outsized value compared to actual NBA players. Part of this is the nature of the beast: Stars have disproportionate impacts on team performance, and the league’s interest in boosting the fortunes of mid-sized and small markets has led to strong incumbency rules for re-signing players.
Bo Jackson Game Jersey
Authentic Womens Deatrich Wise Jr Jersey But the high probability of landing a top-three pick if you are among the worst teams – – or own a pick from among the worst teams — plays into the high value of high future draft picks, too. And the NBA could fix that without damaging its quest for better competitive balance.
I explained my plan to end the NBA draft and move to a rookie free-agency system earlier this year. I also explained why it would be good for competitive balance by removing artificial restraints on rookie deal salaries and making veterans more valuable.
There are a million reasons it will never happen. But it sure would prevent teams like the Nets from being this moribund for this long. Consider that.

Steph Curry had himself an excellent weekend in Rhode Island while attending Harrison Barnes’ wedding, which he capped off by crashing a local party and having a few beers with strangers.
Authentic Alec Ogletree Jersey Curry, along with Hawks guard Ken Bazemore and some friends, left Barnes’ wedding and wanted to keep partying — according to a report from TMZ. They heard loud music coming from a nearby house, and dropped in to say hi, as well as chug a few beers in the process.
Steph was wearing his Asia tour shirt at the time, because you never pass up an opportunity for branding, and joined the crew, spilling beer all over himself, presumably because chugging Bud Lights is one of the few skills Steph has yet to master.
I’d be stupid not to believe that that has any reason to do with why I am a free agent, Rose-Ivey said.

It’s unfortunate that I have to pick between wanting to be a good person and fight for other people’s rights and want to play football, he added. I understand you wanna be entertained. At the same time, those four hours on Sunday don’t match the 24 hours each day I have to spend being black outside of that helmet.
