combine (all times local):5:25 p.m.John Elway says he wants Case Keenum to stay in Denver this season Baker Mayfield Color Rush Jersey , but he’s given his incumbent quarterback the option of leaving if he wants.NFL rules prevent Elway from discussing his pending acquisition of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, a trade that won’t become official until the start of the league year on March 13.But he can talk about Keenum, and he did just that Wednesday at the NFL scouting combine.“My preference would be for him to stay,” Elway said.That would require a contract restructure. He’s due $18 million this season, including $7 million guaranteed.Elway said his desire to keep Keenum isn’t a reflection of what he thinks about this year’s quarterbacks crop.“That’s not the reason I’m saying we want Case back. I would like Case back because I think he’s a good football player that can help us https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Emmanuel-Ogbah-Jersey ,” Elway said. “Now, I gave that flexibility to Case.”Elway also said the Broncos will exercise their options on defensive end Derek Wolfe and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who is returning from a torn Achilles tendon. It would seem that a corner has been turned for the Cleveland Browns, or is in the process of that having happened.On Sunday the good guys notched their 2nd consecutive impressive win, jumping on top of the Cincinnati Bengals 28-0 en route to an eventual 35-20 drubbing at Paul Brown Stadium.I cover it all during this postgame edition of Ez Does ItThere was a particular moment where Damarious Randall intercepted Bengals QB Andy Dalton Denzel Ward Jersey , and after running out of bounds was face to face with his former head coach, Hue Jackson.Randall, who has been a bit outspoken over the whole Hue-to-Cincinnati paradigm, handed his former coach the ball he just picked, in the most magnificent act of trollery performed on the Browns’ behalf Trevon Coley Color Rush Jersey , maybe ever. However what’s significant to me (and thus I spend some time on it) is what must Hue have been thinking at that moment?What’s he thinking now? It’s not really important one way or the other, but it is fascinating. Oh yeah, and also cover the Browns biggest win on the road in a hundred million years, Baker Mayfield doing stuff no rookie ever has and the handful of things to complain about after what was a pretty satisfying Sunday.Give a listen by hitting the player at the top of the page, using the widget located in between the article and comments’ section (of not just this but every DBN article) and also via this action box: Appreciate feedback in the comments’ section below https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Duke-Johnson-Jersey , and if you’d like to get more intimate hit me up on the social mediasThanks for listening!

game in Winnipeg. They now are reconsidering because of a patch of turf in the south end zone.“We are still in the process of determining what to do Brett Favre Color Rush Jersey ,” Packers CEO/President Mark Murphy told Josh Moser of Fox 11.The Raiders already were planning to hold out most of their key players.Team officials from both the Packers and the Raiders spent pregame warmups examining an area of turf in the end zone where the Canadian Football League goal post normally sits.Mike Garafolo of the NFL said league and team officials even have discussed an 80-yard field to avoid the end zone.John Graham of On Ice Management, the promoter for the game, told Matt Kawahara of the that the NFL and NFLPA had approved the field for play.For the Packers, it brings back memories of the 2016 Hall of Fame Game, which was canceled because of unsafe playing conditions. The Packers were scheduled to play the Colts in that game but fresh paint at midfield and in the end zones congealed and rubberized, creating a slick surface. GREEN BAY, Wis. — Mike Pettine is staying as defensive coordinator of the Packers.More Packers coveragePhotos of the Week: 7/21/19 – 7/27/19Packers rookie Gary’s biggest critic is himselfTop Tweets: Former Badger TJ Watt has impressive four-year transformationPHOTOS: 2019 Green Bay Packers training campPackers’ Rodgers, LaFleur ironing out offense https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Paul-Hornung-Jersey , building chemistryNew coach Matt LaFleur announced the decision Friday, answering one of his biggest questions just three days after being hired.In his first year, Pettine installed a 3-4 scheme and had mixed results. First-round draft pick Jaire Alexander showed signs he will become the top cornerback the Packers desperately need, and Green Bay was ranked No. 12 in pass defense (234.5 yards per game), a big improvement over 2017.Green Bay finished 6-9-1 and out of the playoffs for the second straight year. As the Packers wrapped up for the offseason last week, Pettine said he was hoping to return to keep building.“Of course, the foundation is the hardest thing to get right, and I feel that a lot of it has been built — and we’ve made a lot of mistakes Bart Starr Jersey ,” he said. “I think we learned, especially me personally, too, I’ve learned a lot of cases of what not to do versus what to do.”The Packers did pile up 44 sacks, tied for eighth in the league, though injuries struck the defensive line. Green Bay lacked a consistent rush at outside linebacker except for surprise sacks leader Kyler Fackrell (10½).“I like his scheme,” Fackrell said last week. “There were a lot of things that went against us this year with a ton of injuries, a ton of new guys. I think the way that he was able to still keep us playing pretty well Ray Nitschke Color Rush Jersey , I think he did a great job.”Defensive lineman Kenny Clark also liked the new scheme, which saw 17 different players get at least a half-sack.“I had my best season under coach Pettine, and just the blitzes and the different disguises and the different he can do to free people up — it’s been great for me,” he said. “He’s been using a lot of our strengths on the field.”Longtime defensive star Clay Matthews is a free agent after finishing with a career-low 3½ sacks in his 10th season with the Packers.

Sunday by becoming the NFL’s career field goal leader.He would have preferred doing it by adding to his league record for victories.The 23-year veteran made the record-breaking 566th field goal with 2 seconds left in the first half and No. 567 on a 44-yarder in overtime to give the Indianapolis Colts a 34-31 lead before watching Ka’imi Fairbairn make two more field goals to give Houston a 37-34 victory.“It’s more fun when you get a win that’s for sure. But it’s a good record https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Kemoko-Turay-Jersey , a fun record, just would have been nice on a win,” he said.“I think I’ll probably think about it more when I’m done and gone. I was thinking about it when guys were congratulating me during the game, and it just kind of hit me just like that that’s more than anybody’s ever done.”The previous record of 565 belonged to Hall of Famer Morten Andersen, who played high school football at Indianapolis Ben Davis.Vinatieri tied the record by making three kicks in last week’s wet loss at Philadelphia before breaking the record on a bright, sunny day on his home turf.Had he not gotten the chance Sunday, Vinatieri’s next chance would have come Thursday at New England, where he started his career in 1996.But the 45-year-old kicker, the oldest player in the league, kept that story line off the books by making the medium-range field goal to get the Colts within 21-10. Afterward, Vinatieri’s teammates wanted to celebrate more than the new career leader did.“I heard the crowd a little more than usual. I think every one of my teammates came up to me, we were down at the time and was kind of like, ‘We’re down let’s go win this game,'” he said. “Wish I had one more opportunity, I guess.”Vinatieri needs to get used to these sorts of days given the charts he’s still climbing.The South Dakota State alum played in his 341st game, breaking a tie with Hall of Famer George Blanda to move into fourth. If he plays in all 12 remaining games Anthony Castonzo Jersey , he will pass Jeff Feagles (343) and tie Gary Anderson (353) for second all time.His next field goal attempt will surpass Anderson (672) for No. 2 all time.And Vinatieri has moved within 26 points of breaking Andersen’s career scoring record of 2,544. Vinatieri has said he also hopes to break that record at Lucas Oil Stadium. He is the only player on Indy’s roster who played on opening night of the stadium in 2008.What Vinatieri, dubbed the best clutch kicker in league history, does best is win.He’s participated in a league-record 226 regular-season victories, owns four Super Bowl rings, has played on six AFC championship teams and is the NFL’s career scoring leader in postseason games (234 points).His most memorable kicks do not count in the official league records.He made the decisive field goals in the final minutes to give New England two Super Bowl wins and two field goals in the infamous “Snow Bowl”, or “Tuck Rule Game”, to help the Patriots beat Oakland in overtime and start the run to the franchise’s first Super Bowl crown.But he would have liked to win this one.“It’s weird, you know, you come off a loss and it doesn’t feel quite the same way,” Vinatieri said. “I’m sure I’ll look back at in years to come and it will be pretty special.” Nearly four decades removed from a stint in the short-lived USFL, Pro Football Hall of Famer Bill Polian will preside over the opening weekend of the newest spring league, the Alliance of American Football.“It’s one more challenge at the end of a long career,” said Polian, 76, who co-founded the AAF with Charlie Ebersol Ryan Kelly Color Rush Jersey , a TV and film producer whose father, Dick, defined NBC Sports’ programming for more than two decades and created “Sunday Night Football.”Polian simply wasn’t ready for retirement after an NFL career in which he helped build Buffalo, Carolina and Indianapolis into Super Bowl teams, with the Colts winning the NFL championship after the 2006 season.This alternative league seems to stand a better chance of surviving than others, such as the USFL and the World League, because of the people and philosophies involved.“I’ve been pretty vocal about channeling the thoughts of so many of my friends in the NFL, in coaching and player personnel, that since the demise of NFL Europe, it’s needed a developmental league, where players can come in and learn and develop skills,” Polian said. “When Charlie approached me about this, we discussed it at great length and finally I said, ‘I’m going to put my effort where my mouth is and see where we can make this work.”Polian will catch half of the opening-weekend games in the eight-team league. He’ll be in San Antonio on Saturday night to watch the Commanders play the San Diego Fleet — broadcast by CBS in prime time — and in Tempe on Sunday night to see the Arizona Hotshots host the Salt Lake Stallions. The other opening-weekend games are the Atlanta Legends at the Orlando Apollos on Saturday night and the Memphis Express at the Birmingham Iron on Sunday night.Polian said the USFL took about 22 months to get up and running, and the expansion Carolina Panthers took about 19 months.“We’ve done this in nine months because of so many great former NFL people who are excited to do it, excited to be in it https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Margus-Hunt-Jersey ,” Polian said. “We started with nothing and we’re going to open it up on Saturday with eight teams playing what I think will be pretty good football.“That’s a credit to the people involved. We could not have done it if we had not had quality former NFL people.”The AAF is indeed stuffed with executives, general managers, coaches and players who’ve had various NFL experience.Hall of Fame linebacker and Super Bowl winner Mike Singletary is Memphis’ coach.Mike Martz, who was offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams’ “Greatest Show on Turf” Super Bowl-winning team in the 1999 season, returns to the sidelines as coach in San Diego, which two seasons ago lost the NFL’s Chargers to Los Angeles.Mike Vick is the offensive coordinator in Atlanta.Dennis Erickson is head coach in Salt Lake and will face off against Arizona’s Rick Neuheisel.The AAF even has the Head Ball Coach himself, Steve Spurrier, who is coaching the Apollos.Hall of Famer Willie Lanier is an executive in the league office, where former Pittsburgh Steelers stars Hines Ward (head of football operations) and Troy Polamalu (head of player relations) also work.Mike Pereira and Dean Blandino are officiating consultants. Pereira helped develop the unique rules that include no kickoffs, no extra-point tries, overtime rules that call for each team to get one possession and a ninth official, the SkyJudge, who from his perch in the press box can instantly correct “obvious and egregious” officiating errors, like the one that marred the NFC championship game.San Diego hired so well that it lost quarterback Josh Johnson to the Washington Redskins in December and offensive coordinator Jon Kitna to the Dallas Cowboys as their quarterbacks coach.Ebersol said the AAF players can leave for the NFL between April 29 and Dec. 29. He said the AAF released 71 players to the NFL and 35 came back and are playing. The AAF says that of its more than 600 players signed to date, 98 percent have been in the NFL at some point over the past 18 to 24 months.Polian and Ebersol said every NFL team had scouts in San Antonio when all the teams recently held training camp and then each played an exhibition game.“We’re not competitive, we’re complementary Peyton Manning Jersey ,” Ebersol said. “We look at the NFL as, we’re going to support your existence, let them play in your league, put content on your network. They’re a partner. The goal is to improve and support the ecosystem of football.”Games will be carried on CBS, NFL Network and Turner.Ebersol is backed by some heavyweight investors from Silicon Valley and also MGM, and has told them he has a five-to-seven-year business model.The Alliance has built a proprietary tech platform that will allow for a real-time, rewards-based system of integrated gaming and in-game wagering for fans in states where sports gambling is legalized.In a nice touch, Kurt Warner is the pregame and halftime analyst for Saturday night’s games on CBS. After being cut by Green Bay, Warner was working in an Iowa grocery store before playing in the Arena Football League and ultimately landing with the Rams, leading them to a Super Bowl victory and being voted NFL MVP in 1999.“Think about how many Kurt Warners are hiding among those kids who don’t get to the NFL,” Ebersol said. “Those are the guys we’re finding.”

RENTON Brett Hundley Color Rush Jersey , Wash. (AP) — For most of his career, the fourth quarter is where Russell Wilson has thrived. His late game heroics of leading comebacks in the fourth quarter or overtime to win games take up nearly an entire page of Seattle’s weekly game notes.Except this year, when the fourth-quarter mistakes by Wilson have overshadowed his late-game successes. And those mistakes are part of the reason Seattle is 4-5 and faces such a critical game on Thursday night against Green Bay in the quest to stay in the NFC playoff conversation.Seattle is 1-8 in its last nine games decided by one score or less. Over the past two seasons, Seattle is 5-11 in one-score games. They used to be the types of games in which Seattle thrived, with Wilson finding a way to score and pull out a victory in the closing minutes, or defensively making the necessary stops to stem any late rally by an opponent.But that page in Seattle’s game notes detailing his 24 comebacks in the fourth quarter and overtime has just three entries over the past two seasons.“There’s two things there. It goes back to finishing right. If we can make one or two plays here or there across the board — offensive, defensive, special teams, whatever it may be — we can turn that around really easily. That’s the great thing,” Wilson said. “The second thing is … we’re in every game and every game is really close and every game we’re right there to win the game. I’m looking forward to that turning around. We have great confidence in that and what we’re going to do.”There’s no doubting that in stretches this season Wilson has played great. He’s thrown for 14 touchdowns with just two interceptions over the past five games. And the success or failure of Seattle in the fourth quarter is not solely his responsibility.But there’s also been a pattern of crucial late-game mistakes by Wilson that has been a contributing factor to each of Seattle’s five losses.— In a Week 1 loss at Denver, Seattle gained seven yards on its final three drives and Wilson threw an interception on a desperation throw on the final play of a 27-24 loss.— In Week 2 at Chicago Richard Sherman Color Rush Jersey , Wilson threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown with the Seahawks trailing 17-10, and on Seattle’s next drive fumbled while being sacked. Seattle lost 24-17— In Week 5 against the Rams, Wilson missed on his final two passes with Seattle closing in on field goal range while down by two points with less than 4 minutes left. Seattle punted and never got the ball back in a 33-31 loss.— In Week 9, Wilson threw his second fourth-quarter interception that was returned for a touchdown when Desmond King stepped in front of a pass and the pick-six ended up being the deciding points in the Chargers’ 25-17 win.— And last week, Wilson was stripped by Dante Fowler midway through the fourth quarter deep in Seattle’s end. Brandin Cooks’ TD run on the next play ended up being the deciding points in the Rams’ 36-31 win.The only one-score game the Seahawks have won this season was arguably one of its uglier performances when Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 52-yard field goal on the final play to beat Arizona in Week 4. And while several of those games have seen Wilson rebound from his mistakes to give Seattle a chance in the closing seconds, the final results are not what the Seahawks have come to expect.“It’s finishing at the right time, making the right play. We’ve been so good at those games for such a long time that the fact that it’s not happening is a little bit unusual,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “I’m disappointed because we’ve been able to always feel like we’re going to win those games and do it. We still have the same mentality about it and attitude about it, but we’ve got to show it. We’ve got to get those finishes done.”NOTES: LB K.J. Wright (knee) was the only player not to participate in practice on Tuesday. Wright’s knee caused him to leave Sunday’s loss to the Rams early. … G D.J. Fluker (calf) and RB Chris Carson (hip) were full participants, strengthening Seattle’s belief the pair will play after missing last week’s game. Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world, and even after his upcoming divorce from his longtime wife Mackenzie Duane Brown Color Rush Jersey , he’ll still have over $70 billion and growing, which I believe would make him the third-richest person in the world. (And Mackenzie Bezos the richest woman in the world.) He’s made $17 billion in 2019 alone. Yes, in 2019. On Sunday, he’ll be at the Super Bowl in Atlanta, Georgia watching the LA Rams take on the New England Patriots, and many have wondered if the Seattle area multi-multi-multi-billionaire will become the new owner of the Seahawks following the 2018 passing of Paul Allen.Bezos has had a home in Medina, Washington since the late-90s and of course put Amazon on the map from Seattle with its founding in 1994 to growing into the most powerful retailer in the world. Even I bought a bunch of clothes on Amazon last night because I’m letting my Prime membership expire today. Take that, Bezos!Bezos has been rumored as a guy that other NFL owners would want to step in following Allen’s death in October. Jerry Jones went beyond rumors to say that he’d give him a “piggyback” ride if he wanted to join the league. The idea has been floated that Bezos might show up at the Super Bowl and that commissioner Roger Goodell would be close in his ear all night about the potential opening in Seattle; Allen’s sister Jody still has control of the team and it’s thought that a sale could fetch up to $3 billion.Bezos made that last week, I assume.

Aha. Varmasti ihan tottakin. Kuten, että jos joku tarjoaa Alioskista tuon summan, niin lähtee.

No, kyllähän tosta otsikon jo saa!

Varmasti tuokin totta.. ja joo.. jos Alioskesta tai kenestä vaan saa sen 30 milliä niin lihoiksi. Tuo Whelan ei ole kauhean pidetty fanien keskuudessa
lähinnä näiden yltiöpäisten kommenttien vuoksi. Lähinnä tuota menetystä olisi jos/kun Brighton katsoo itse tarvitsevansa Whiten palvelua.
