Week 11 NFL preview: Ravens vs. Bears

Authentic Bobby Ryan Jersey
Ray Rice is falling apart. Joe Flacco is a gargantuan waste of money. Josh McCown is filling in for Jay Cutler. The Ravens and Bears face off in a match between two teams with vague and uninspiring playoff hopes! Matt Ufford and the crew preview the game and make their predictions.

s Joe Flacco and the 4-5 Baltimore Ravens travel to face the Josh McCown and the 5-4 Chicago Bears. The Bears are only a game behind the first-place Lions and beat the Rodgers-less Packers two weeks ago, so are still looking good in the playoff race. The same can’t be said of the Ravens. Joe Flacco signed a $120 million contract in the offseason and has rewarded his team with a quarterback rating lower than those of Mike Glennon and Christian Ponder.
Authentic Brandon Williams Jersey
There are a few notable college coaches on this list, including Mike Reilly and the 2000 Chargers that went 1-15, or Dennis Erickson and the 2004 49ers that went 2-14, but they aren’t the most notable. There are still two coaches that can give Bradley, and any coach going through a rough first season, a reason to believe.

The Colts hired Jim Caldwell to replace Tony Dungy in 2009, and he didn’t miss a beat, leading Indianapolis back to the Super Bowl after a 14-2 season. Except, did he really have much to do with that? The Colts went 10-6 the next season and then when Peyton Manning missed all of 2011, fell to 2-14. Caldwell was fired and the team cleared the house for Andrew Luck, much in the way they did for Manning 15 years earlier.

Tom Flores won two Super Bowls with the Raiders (’80 in Oakland, ’83 in Los Angeles) but in 1992 he took over the Seattle Seahawks and went 2-14. He coached two more years in Seattle, going 6-10 in both, and didn’t coach again. He should have known better than to tempt fate with the Seahawks.

Chargers may have tampered in negotiations with Russell Okung, report says

Mens Cole Beasley Jersey
Just more than an hour after free agency opened Thursday, ESPN reported that the Chargers and left tackle Russell Okung had agreed to a 4-year, $53 million deal.

Mens Greg Lloyd Jersey That’s a quick deal, especially considering that Okung is representing himself, and as a potential free agent was not supposed to have any direct contact with interested teams until after the free agency period officially opened at 4 p.m. ET. A team that has direct contact with a player before that deadline is considered to be tampering.

The alleged victim did not initially press charges, but Armstead was indicted last week on three counts of sexual assault. If he is convicted of the second-degree felonies, he faces up to 20 years in prison. Armstead was dismissed from the Baylor team in 2015 following an unspecified violation of team rules.

Chatman was a redshirt freshman in 2013 and transferred to Sam Houston State a year later. It’s unclear if he faces the same charges as Armstead.

While the arrests are more than three years removed from the alleged incident, McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna said the two were taken into custody because of newly discovered evidence and continued investigation.

The Baylor football program has been rocked by the sexual assault scandal that has seen at least 19 players arrested since 2011. The alleged victim in the 2013 incident involving Chatman and Armstead is the plaintiff in a lawsuit against Baylor that claims at least 52 acts of rape involving some 31 players occurred between 2011 and 2014.

NFL executives no longer deserve the benefit of the doubt that their decisions are football-related.

Williams did have a scare with a neck injury in 2015, but he rebounded well in 2016. Ross has more durability concerns, though, and Davis is unable to work out at the moment because of an ankle injury.

Now that Williams has run and run well, there is no doubt he has reemerged as the best NFL prospect of the three, with only a little more than a month left the draft process.

So, how does he compare to those other Mike Williamses?

The Mike Williams from USC, who went No. 10 overall to the Lions in 2005, was monstrous at 6-5, 245 pounds, but not much else. The Mike Williams from Syracuse, who went in the fourth round to the Buccaneers in 2010, flashed early as a big playmaker with a nose for the end zone but couldn’t be consistent.

Of course this isn’t about football. It is about maintaining the status quo, or what NFL teams believe that to be. It is about not ruffling feathers, or at least the feathers NFL teams care about ruffling.

Still, it is a long offseason. It only takes one team rowing against the tide. And, again, even the Jay Cutlers were still looking for work, never mind a part-time starter fighting against a scarlet letter.

Now, the Bleacher Report explanation is much more plausible — and NFL executives no longer deserve the benefit of the doubt that their decisions are football-related.

They might be able to get away with them being money-related, except that there is nothing definitive about what Kaepernick wants to get paid. Then again … $18.5 million for Mike Glennon. To be a starter.

Source: Saints host QB Chase Daniel on free-agent visit

Elite Britton Colquitt Jersey METAIRIE, La. — The New Orleans Saints got a visit from an old friend Sunday, a source told ESPN’s Adam Caplan: free-agent quarterback Chase Daniel.

Elite Bishop Sankey Jersey Daniel, 30, spent four years backing up Drew Brees in New Orleans early in his career before moving on to higher-paying backup jobs with the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles.

The Saints have a veteran backup they like, Luke McCown, who is due $1.5 million in the final year of his contract. But they always valued Daniel, and he is five years younger than McCown.

The Red Sox’s pitching depth is already being tested. Veteran right-hander Clay Buchholz was dealt to the Philadelphia Phillies for minor league infielder Josh Tobias in December in order to create payroll flexibility, and lefty David Price has not yet made a spring training start because of elbow stiffness and is set to open the season on the disabled list. The Sox still have five major league starters (Rick Porcello, Chris Sale, Eduardo Rodriguez, Steven Wright and Pomeranz), but Triple-A option Henry Owens has slid on the depth chart during a horrendous spring in which he is overhauling his mechanics.

If Pomeranz is not ready to begin the season on time, veteran right-hander Kyle Kendrick likely would be first in line to take his spot. Kendrick hasn’t allowed a run in 15 consecutive spring training innings and has a 1.50 ERA in 18 innings overall.

Pomeranz is expected to be re-evaluated Monday. Farrell told reporters that it’s “too early to speculate” on whether Pomeranz will miss his next start.

The Red Sox acquired Pomeranz from the San Diego Padres last July for 19-year-old pitching prospect Anderson Espinoza. An investigation by Major League Baseball revealed that the Padres failed to disclose Pomeranz’s accurate medical information, but the Red Sox declined the chance to rescind the trade.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are losing at the perfect time

Limited Youth Mike Webster Jersey
At 0-6, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going nowhere and headed there really fast. They are on a collision course with a top-three pick in next year’s NFL Draft, precisely why losing big now could pay huge dividends shortly.

Thanks to this awful campaign, Tampa Bay could fire head coach Greg Schiano and draft a quarterback out of a loaded class likely to feature Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater, Oregon’s Marcus Mariota, UCLA’s Brett Hundley and others. Had the Buccaneers gone 9-7 or 8-8 this year, ownership almost certainly would have to stick with Schiano.

Either way, the team would not have been in a spot to pick a top-flight signal-caller. Now, the Bucs are on course to be in prime position.

“It means a lot to me, because I started here, and obviously I want to finish here. I’ve seen a lot of guys come and go, especially in my (draft) class. I’m the only one left in my class here. It means a lot. We won a Super Bowl here, and I’m looking forward to putting a fifth trophy in the case.”

A.J. Klein Jersey When the news that Pierre-Paul and the Giants had agreed on terms was first reported by Rapoport, Pierre-Paul denied that he was signing anything:

With 50 career sacks in seven seasons, Pierre-Paul has become the face of New York’s defense, even with superstars Olivier Vernon, Damon Harrison and Janoris Jenkins entering the mix last season. After locking up those three guys to big deals last season, the Giants locked up Pierre-Paul on a long-term contract.

Selection Sunday Bracketology 2017: UNC/Duke No. 1 seed debate could go either way

I spent a good chunk of my afternoon doing something I didn’t expect to be doing 24 hours earlier, parsing the profiles of the ACC top seed (don’t say “regular season champion,” since no such title exists) North Carolina Tar Heels and ACC Tournament champion Duke Blue Devils. Yes, I could have thrown the Gonzaga Bulldogs in for good measure, but I don’t think the Selection Committee is going to kick a one-loss team that went 6-0 in games against the Top 50, with just one of those wins coming at home, off the top line. And that’s the case even if the West Coast Conference isn’t anywhere near the level of this season’s ACC.

The two teams are remarkably even, sitting right next to each other in the RPI table (UNC ranks fifth, Duke sixth). Both did well in games played against that metric’s Top 100 — Carolina went 17-6; Duke 16-7. And while the Blue Devils would be the first eight-loss team to earn a top seed, the Tar Heels have dropped seven games themselves.

Sitting with a one-stroke lead over Cantlay on the 16th tee, Hadwin cut his tee ball on the 16th left into the water. The wheels were coming off, and the door sat wide open for Cantlay to seize control.

We’ll keep all of the latest rumors about free agents updated here, so check back often for the latest. Our rumors are listed by date, and below that, is a list of some of the bigger name players in the NFL.

But comparing the two Tobacco Road rivals will be more difficult. The teams are very close in most of the main factors (quality wins, bad losses, record away from home, RPI), with strength of schedule looking like the main differentiators.

The28, after running roughshod through the ACC tournament and becoming the first team to win four games in four days at that conference tilt, grabbed up the East’s No. 2 seed, and they’ll meet No. 15 Troy in the opening round.
