  1. Today
  2. The offense has failed to improve over the last three years since O'Brien has become the HC, so some kind of change had to occur.
  3. RT @FullTimeHoops1: San Diego has TWO McDonalds All Americans in the same year for the first time: @JHANDS08, @flyguyfreddyy!!! https://t.c…

  4. Recent success has catapulted two of the New England Patriots coaches towards the top of many hiring lists around the NFL. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia recently interviewed for multiple head coaching vacancies including the Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers and San Diego Chargers. McDaniels was reportedly a top candidate for the 49ers head job. He told the team that he would provide them with a decision by Sunday. During his weekly conference call with local media on Monday, the 40-year-old announced his intentions to remain with the Patriots going forward. "At this time, it's just best for my family and myself to remain here in New England, and focus on this year's playoffs and finish out the year however it turns out." McDaniels will continue to oversee the Patriots offense in 2017 but still hopes to land another head coaching role in the future. Matt Patricia, who interviewed with the Chargers and Rams, also appears likely to remain with the Patriots after both teams recently hired new head coaches. Patricia, 42, is finishing up his 13th season with New England, serving as the team's defensive coordinator for the past five. Two weeks ago it seemed as if the Patriots would have some vacancies of their own. For now the future remains in very stable condition under the guidance of Bill Belichick and his two right-hand men.

  6. Since day one of Cowboys’ training camp at Oxnard, CA in July, the Cowboys have had one mantra, “FIGHT.” They’ve continued to live and breathe a lifestyle of hard work and perseverance through every step of Dallas’s 13-3 season. In his first ever career playoff game, Prescott had an opportunity to show his mettle. The Cowboys were down 21-3 by halfway through the second quarter. In a game that demonstrated what’s to love about the NFL, Dak led his team to a heartbreaking 34-31 loss. Prescott noted that it’s just who they are as a team. “We don’t give up,” Prescott said. “We’re not going to stop no matter what the score is, no matter the game. It shows the true character of this team.” http://www.dallascowboys.com/news/2017/01/15/dak-despite-disappointing-loss-“i-plan-play-many-more”-playoff-games Dak made sure to give credit to the Dallas fans for their part in helping push the team. “It was a great atmosphere. AT&T (Stadium) was amazing today, the fans,” he said. “It was a great game all the way around. Just hate to be on the losing end, obviously.” Even though the game ended in a loss, Dak isn’t letting it get him down. He called the game a “dream” and pointed out that this is only the beginning for this young team’s successful future. “But this is game that I dreamed as a little kid of playing in. I plan to play in many more of them.” Head coach Jason Garrett was impressed with Dak’s performance, but took time to address some of the issues that contributed to the loss. "He was fantastic," Garrett said via NFL.com's Marc Sessler. "I thought he handled the situation well. When you're down 21-3, it's easy to start getting out of yourself and doing things that are uncharacteristic. In so many ways, it was positive. Not the ideal start, but again, the guys battled back and demonstrated who they are." “Offensively, I think as much as anything else, there were a couple of self-inflicted wounds,” Garrett said. “We had a good first drive, went right down the field and kicked the field goal. The second drive, we had a big play that came back because of a procedural situation. It was a 15-yard penalty that got us behind the sticks and all the while, they were up and down the field. I felt like we were in good rhythm offensively. We just had a couple of things that got us behind the chains and forced us to punt.” Even Aaron Rodgers had to give props to Dak for his fierce performance. "The guy is outstanding. A phenomenal year. The Cowboys have a bright future with Dak Prescott," Rodgers said via Mike Fisher of the 105.3 The Fan. Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones also had a little to add about his impression of Dak’s first playoff experience. “He was everything that you could dream about if you had a make believe situation on a rookie quarterback,” Jones said. “He played in a veteran way.” View full NFL news story

  10. Left tackle is the second-most important position in football because it is responsible for protecting the quarterback’s blind side. Unfortunately for the New York Giants, their biggest Achilles' heel is left tackle Ereck Flowers. At 6'6", 329 pounds, Flowers has the ideal size for a left tackle. But whether because of poor technique or slow feet, he has regressed in his second year. He struggled against speed rushers all season, had costly penalties, and was one of the main reasons the Giants' offense did not reach its full potential. Even coming into the season, there were concerns over Flowers, as Pro Football Focus ranked him as the worst starting left tackle in football following the 2015 season. But general manager Jerry Reese felt Flowers would improve in year two. Instead, it became painfully obvious that he is not a starting left tackle, and now the Giants have to decide what to do with their former 2015 first-round draft pick. There have been rumors that the Giants may put him at right tackle next season. That would not solve the issue with him struggling against quick edge pass rushers, though. When you factor in that next season the Giants will face edge rushers such as Von Miller, Khalil Mack, and Joey Bosa, the Giants have to move Flowers to the interior of the offensive line. Playing guard will allow him to use his brute strength at the point of attack and not have to rely on footwork as much. Moving him to guard would then give the Giants the chance to draft a left tackle, such as Florida State’s Roderick Johnson. Transitioning Flowers from left tackle to guard needs to be one of the top priorities for New York this offseason. If the transition goes smoothly and the Giants take a left tackle in the first round, then their offense can be potent once again. View full NFL news story

  15. @75Gunderson just thought our goal should have been a 4 pt lead at all costs. A spike there didn't seem to be in line with that.

  16. Yesterday
  17. Speaking at Monday’s end-of-season press conference with the media, Texans Head Coach Bill O’Brien gave several updates on players, staff members, and the team. One of the players mentioned in the conference was All-Pro and two-time former Defensive Player of the Year in Defensive End J.J. Watt. The 27-year old missed all but three games in the 2016 season, as he recovered from back surgery. The Pro Bowler has had a few injuries in his career, and this latest injury was deemed the most significant of them all. However, Coach O’Brien gave an optimistic update on his star player’s status heading into the offseason, saying that Watt is ahead of schedule in his recovery. The team will certainly take any contributions from their face of the franchise pass rusher. After recording 69.0 sacks, 15 forced fumbles, 41 pass deflections, and an interception from 2012-2015, Watt recorded just 1.5 sacks and just 8 tackles in 2016. He was clearly hampered by his injury, which was something that he was suffering from during last offseason. If Watt can return to the field fully healthy next year, however, the team could be a force on defense. Already loaded with talent on defense with 2nd-team All-Pros in Linebackers Whitney Mercilus, Jadeveon Clowney and Benardrick McKinney, along with the breakout performance of impending free-agent CB A.J. Bouye, the team has a good core of impact players. These players, along with veterans in LB Brian Cushing, CB Johnathan Joseph and young guys like CB Kevin Johnson ensure that the defense will remain a strength of the team going into 2017. All that’s left for the rest of the league to fear is a generational talent like J.J. Watt returning to the fold. View full NFL news story

  19. Days after their season-ending loss to the New England Patriots, the Houston Texans are already making changes to better themselves for next year. The team has reportedly mutually parted ways with offensive coordinator George Godsey. This comes on the heels of a season in which the Houston offense underperformed based on the expectations heading into the season. Godsey had been with the team since 2014, which was also when Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien was hired. O’Brien and Godsey have had experience working with each other, going back to their days coaching at Georgia Tech. The team was expected to have an improved offensive attack heading into 2016, as the team spent big money on free agents, particularly QB Brock Osweiler and RB Lamar Miller. They also allocated resources in the draft to address their lack of playmakers behind DeAndre Hopkins. The team spent their 1st round pick on WR Will Fuller, and later drafted converted QB Braxton Miller in the 3rd round to play WR. Bill O’Brien released a statement about George Godsey, saying, “I’m grateful for the tireless work ethic and contributions George (Godsey) has made to our team.” O’Brien and Godsey shared play-calling duties to end the season. However, with O’Brien likely returning for the 2017 season, Houston’s next offensive coordinator’s role in play-calling is still undetermined. Whomever the next offensive coordinator may be, the team will need to find a coach who can get better performances out of the offense. The team struggled with Brock Osweiler and Tom Savage under center week to week. The team had a 1,000-yard rusher in Lamar Miller, but the run game didn’t seem to have the same type of punch like it did when guys like Arian Foster were in the backfield. On the season, the team scored just 17.4 points per game, ranking 29th in the league, and finished 29th in total offense, averaging 314.7 yards per game. In 2015, the team was 19th in total offense. Look for the team to hire someone with experience in grooming quarterbacks, or even a guy currently on the staff, as the QB position was the part of the offense that was the most troublesome for the team this season.

  21. Sunday afternoon was one of the most heartbreaking moments in 27-year-old wide receiver Cole Beasley’s life. Seemingly devastated after the Cowboys 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers, just 12 hours later Beasley found something to smile about. Early Monday morning Beasley and his wife Kyrstin welcomed their second son into the world. The couple’s older son Ace is still a toddler, so with the Cowboys earlier than expected exit from the playoffs, Beasley will have plenty of extra time to adjust to the challenges of life with two small children. The Beasley's have yet to announce their newest edition's name yet. View full NFL news story
