The Raiders have announced McGloin will be the team’s starter in Week 12.

Matt McGloin will start his second game for the Oakland Raiders this Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, according to the Raiders’ official Twitter account.

It’s unclear what the long-term answer at quarterback will be for Oakland, but another promising start by McGloin could begin to solve the problem.

The speedy back, who ran a 4.3 40-yard dash in a tryout with the Chiefs two months ago, rushed for 102 yards and two touchdowns on 26 attempts and caught 14 receptions for 60 yards as a rookie. He also served in a special teams capacity, returning 1,035 yards worth of kick returns.

Starting Colts running back Trent Richardson has struggled since arriving from Cleveland earlier this season in a blockbuster trade. He’s averaged just 2.8 yards per carry in Indy and has been routinely outplayed by backup Donald Brown.

While the shifty 5’9 and 180-pound Rainey will fill a different role than that of the 225-pound Richardson, his signing could be a signal of discontent among the Colts brass, despite recent assertions to the contrary.

On the other hand, the Colts could just be adding depth to a running back corps that has lost Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard for the season.

Each week Josh McCown has succeeded there have been justifications why there’s not a quarterback controversy in Chicago, but perhaps there should be. The Bears defense isn’t as opportunistic as it’s been in past years, making offensive consistency far more important. McCown is completing 60 percent of his passes, averaging 7.7 yards per attempt and thrown four touchdowns with no interceptions. He might be the right person to lead the team down the stretch.

It’s right about that time that we need to take a serious look at our hot seat watch and consider removing some names.

Congratulations to the Jaguars and Bucs on their first wins of the season! But be careful with that win column, dear Florida teams, as the Vikings are also dangerously bad. I’d hate for you to spoil your draft position just for the brief high you get from this:

It’s right about that time that we need to take a serious look at our hot seat watch and consider removing some names. We’ve stated multiple times that it’s much harder to get out of the hot seat than it is to get in it, and some of our coaches are nearing that point where they’re probably safe, barring some otherworldly collapse and/or locker room breakdown.

Limited Mens Tiago Splitter Jersey That said, removing coaches will be a slow process, and any of them could find their way back onto the list. It’s just time to narrow our focus. With that said, there is one coach in particular who deserves to be removed: Jim Schwartz of the Detroit Lions.

I tracked 36 instances in NFL history of a team that lost 14 or more games in a single season and looked closely at the careers of the head coaches that oversaw those teams. I wanted to know how many of them survived past that season, how many were fired during the season, how many ever coached again, and possibly, if any of those coaches were any good.
Ryan Callahan Womens Jersey
Over a sample of 36 you are likely to have some exceptions, and this was no different. A few of the coaches are names that will forever hold weight in the football community as the greatest minds and leaders that the sport has ever seen. Before there were 14-game or 16-game seasons, Tom Landry went 0-11-1 during his first year as head coach of the Cowboys. He didn’t post a winning season until his seventh year as head coach. Bill Belichick was fired as coach of the Browns. Bill Parcells went 3-12-1 in his first season with the Giants.

Jim Harbaugh demonstrates a headshot by taking a shot at his own head

Daryl Johnston Elite Jersey Jim Harbaugh was displeased with what he perceived to be a Panthers headshot on Kendall Hunter, and he demonstrated such by…taking a nice hard crack at his own head:

Just so we’re clear, you don’t *have* to point out dangerous plays by inflicting pain on yourself. You can just talk. It works.
Youth Joel Ward Jersey
Coach Dennis Allen has already exceeded preseason expectations by guiding the Raiders to three wins in their first nine games. The wheels may be about to fall off, however, as the Oakland passing game yields diminishing returns and Terrelle Pryor can’t gain the 100 yards a game on the ground required to keep the Raiders’ offense viable. Oakland’s defensive front has acquitted itself with honor this season, but it may start to crack under the strain.

Tavon Austin must have been inspired by that great urban poet “Quint Black” before the Rams game against the Colts and decided to “shake dem haters off” repeatedly in Indianapolis.

They got their wish Sunday. Austin was a blur, returning a punt 98 yards for a touchdown (no flags) and catching two touchdown passes for a ridiculous 138 yards. His big day was a major catalyst for the Rams shocking most football fans and beating the hell out of the Colts in their own stadium.

Austin has shown flashes of this all year. Unfortunately, he has also struggled because of a lack of concentration as well as being snake bitten on his returns. Now, he has to strive for some consistency. He may not have a big game like that every week, but if he can cut out the dropped passes and his return team can cut out the penalties, this Rams team may go from moribund to pretty damn fun to watch on offense the second half of the season.

Alexis Sánchez played well while hurt for Chile vs. Argentina, but they still lost

Chile lost 1-0 to Argentina in World Cup qualifying on Thursday, but the people who took the result hardest might have been Arsenal fans. Alexis Sánchez played 90 minutes despite hurting his ankle last weekend, and he looked uncomfortable at times.

After Arsenal’s loss to West Bromwich Albion over the weekend, Arsene Wenger said that Sánchez’s ankle was in a terrible state and that he should not have played in the second half. But Sanchez foreshadowed that he’d play for Chile anyway in an Instagram post that read, The only failure is not to try.
Authentic Mens Margus Hunt Jersey
And try Sánchez did, in a heavily wrapped ankle. He was never at full speed and could be seen visibly grimacing at points during the game, but he kept playing hard and making big plays for his team. While he couldn’t run in behind the defense as usual, he was his team’s most creative passer, regularly creating attacks that his team couldn’t finish.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that Cousins had personally asked owner Daniel Snyder to trade him, but basically was told it would not happen.
Elite Mens Paul Krause Jersey
So Cousins, the first player in NFL history to be franchise tagged two consecutive years, is set to earn $23.94 million this season. That’s a raise from last season’s tag worth almost $20 million.

Cousins had told the Washington Post in January that he would prefer a long-term deal in the negotiations with the Redskins, but that a franchise tag would be a good sign, too.

If I’m getting franchise tagged, it means they want me back, he said. If they want me back, then I definitely want to be back.

The significance of those colorful sneakers worn at the NCAA tournament

Watching a high-level NCAA tournament game in person can be an overload to one is senses. From the bands’ constant homages to their institution to the on-court commentary and the blur of uniforms that get more colorful every season (e.g., Oregon and Maryland), one can feel worn out from taking it all in.

However, one thing that always catches my eyes are the sneakers, especially ones that break rank from the traditional colorways of the universities. While shoe providers like Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour go to great lengths to supply players with their finest products, there is also an intention to provide uniformity with particular color schemes and signature models.

And then you have players that go rouge.

Take Jarvis Garrett, the backup point guard of the Rhode Island Rams.

The Rams, blessed with the awesome colors navy and Columbia blue, put a good-looking team on the court. Their uniforms tread the fine line of being traditional and modernly refined, and their Adidas connect provides a bevy of options. Garrett is choice is about as opposite as can be, with a pair of pink Adidas D Lillard 3 is.

I wear these to pay homage to my godmother, Barbara Burton-Malone, says Garrett, as some Iowa State Cyclones fans might recognize the name, as she is ISU is senior guard Deonte Burton is mother, who passed away in 2014. She is been a big influence in my life and he is like my brother. Plus, they make me feel good on the court.

Burton, wearer of the Nike Hyperdunk ’08s for the tournament, and Garrett are both natives of Milwaukee, and both share solidarity for a woman who meant so much to them growing up.

I feel like she is part of me when I am playing, Deonte Burton said to the Des Moines Register before their first matchup with Nevada. I think she Would think it was cool and she Would be honored to have touched her son in a way to make me want to touch other people.

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist resumes skating amid recovery

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist is on track to return during a road trip late next week in California, if not sooner.

Coach Alain Vigneault said Thursday that Lundqvist has resumed skating and is “feeling a lot better.”

“Originally that was our mindset, that we were thinking he should be ready for that, and we haven’t changed,” Vigneault said of Lundqvist’s recovery timetable, which has him scheduled to return during a three-game road trip that begins against the Los Angeles Kings on March 25. “But I am saying to you he is feeling better, so we’ll see how he is moving forward here.”

It’s no secret the Jets are looking for a veteran quarterback. They spent the weekend wining and dining journeyman Josh McCown, 37, who left Sunday without a contract. The two sides will continue to talk. The Jets also remain interested in Jay Cutler and perhaps others in what is considered a weak free-agent QB class.
Youth Sylvester Williams Jersey
From all indications, the Jets have no desire to sign Kaepernick, despite the fact that he is only 29 and has four postseason wins on his résumé.

Jets owner Woody Johnson is a prominent GOP supporter who raised millions for Donald Trump; last fall, during the presidential campaign, Johnson blamed Kaepernick for being one of the main reasons for the NFL’s declining TV ratings.

Kaepernick will stand for the national anthem during the 2017 season, sources have told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Kaepernick no longer wants his method of protest to detract from the positive change he believes has been created, sources said. The amount of national discussion on social inequality — as well as support from other athletes nationwide, including NFL and NBA players — affirmed the message he has tried to deliver.

Michigan kept winning and won the Big Ten tournament.

Maverick Morgan, who gave that quote earlier in the season, scored four points and had two rebounds and five turnovers in 27 minutes.

UM¡¯s quarterfinal game against Purdue was a thriller, with Michigan coming back in the last minute to force overtime against the Big Ten¡¯s No. 1 seed.

Then Michigan won against Minnesota in the semifinals, and against Wisconsin in the championship game. The Wolverines won four games in four days, with three of their wins coming against teams that had a bye on the day the Wolverines played Illinois.
Game Mens Tom Barrasso Jersey
Michigan found out on that Sunday night, March 12, that it was a No. 7 seed in the Big Dance. The Wolverines were only a few days removed from being a bubble team.

Friday: Michigan beat Oklahoma State in one of the games of the year.
Michigan¡¯s run so far has felt downright magical. We¡¯ll see how much that can keep up when the Wolverines play (probably) Louisville on Sunday.

The Jets know what they have in Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley, Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory. It’s not an elite group of skill talent.

Michigan¡¯s game uniforms were stuck in the cargo hold of the aircraft and, therefore, left behind for investigators in Michigan. So the team wore practice jerseys and shorts.

The NFL has taken steps in the last few years to protect players on kickoffs, outlawing the four-man wedge block and moving the kickoff to the 35-yard line to limit the number of returns.

Michigan basketball had a very bad week before an amazing run to Big Ten tournament title

Michigan was far and away the best story of Championship Week. The Wolverines took out Minnesota on Saturday and won the Big Ten tournament title hours before the bracket reveal on Selection Sunday. Michigan is playing its best basketball of the season heading into the NCAA tournament, and that’s even more amazing when you consider what the team had to go through to get there.

Anthony Davis was devastating in that 125-122 win against the Charlotte Hornets. He scored 46 points, doing it on 18-of-31 shooting while adding 21 rebounds. He had nine points in the overtime period, helping make sure New Orleans hung onto the win and keeping their faint playoff hopes on life support. It all happened as Cousins watched from the bench.

DeMarcus Cousins checked out with 9:25 remaining. Has 5 fouls.

So much for Boogie and AD trying to figure it out together.

Cousins has recorded either five or six fouls in five of his nine games in New Orleans, including tallying five fouls in the Pelicans’ last game on Wednesday. In Saturday’s game, he reached five fouls early in the fourth quarter, and Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry never subbed him back in.

After Davis subbed in for Cousins at the 9:25 mark, he never left the game. From that point on, including overtime, Davis scored 24 points on 10-of-17.1
