    Did you See His Handoff Though?

    Even better when you can smile and say.... "ummmm, that's pretty good, I kind of like it, can I have more?" I thought #1 for BM was a reach and could have been bundled better -but- evidently they wanted their guy, and BM was happy he got a cool RV in the deal.

    Bell done in Pittsburgh

    Just saw this ........ ESPN - http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/25276952/pittsburgh-steelers-players-raid-locker-teammate-leveon-bell In a fitting end to a bizarre holdout story, several Pittsburgh Steelers players rummaged through Bell's locker and removed his No. 26 nameplate after Wednesday's practice. Bell forfeited the season and his $14.5 million franchise tag by failing to report to team headquarters on Tuesday. He left behind a locker full of stuff, including cleats, shirts and a CD labeled 'Le'Veon Bell #1." Linebacker Bud Dupree scored two pairs of Jordan cleats and thanked Bell. The move seemed more playful than malicious. "Appreciate the cleats, my guy," Dupree said into a camera. "I wish you success, my guy." Bell's locker had stayed intact through his holdout. Players answered Bell-related questions for what they hope is the last time. Defensive end Cam Heyward said the most disappointing part of the Bell holdout is "that we even talk about it." "It sucks when a guy doesn't have to answer his own questions," Heyward said. "If they aren't on the team, I'm not worried about it. "... Just get back to football. That's all we can do. Wish him the best. This train doesn't stop for anybody." Guard Ramon Foster, the team's NFL Players Association rep, took a businesslike approach to Bell's absence. "Save your money, get a lot of information on what we're trying to do moving forward and that way stuff like this doesn't happen," Foster said in a message directed at players. "We fall short on things because guys get selfish or guys say, 'Hey, yeah, we're going to take a deal.' "We've got to inform ourselves this next time around so this type of stuff doesn't happen. I hate it. [The franchise tag] could be good for both sides because you're one of the highest paid at your position. But they retain your rights so you don't hit the open market."

  8. TSN - Ohio State remains in the Big Ten championship and College Football Playoff race with two regular-season games left despite the fact the Buckeyes are still searching for a complete-game performance. The No. 8 Buckeyes hit on two orf tyhree phases in a 26-6 victory against No. 24 Michigan State on Saturday. MORE: 10 best CFP combinations, from the reasonable to the absurd The special teams helped set that up. Punter Drue Chrisman landed six punts inside the Michigan State 10-yard line, including five in a row in the second half that helped turn the momentum in the Buckeyes' favor. The defense, which was torched for 539 total yards in a 49-20 loss to Purdue on Oct. 20, has its act together. The Buckeyes limited the Spartans to 143 total yards and without a third-down conversion (0 for 8) in the first half. In the second half, Ohio State forced three turnovers. Defensive end Dre'Mont Jones' fumble recovery for a touchdown opened a 16-6 lead, a double-digit advantage the Buckeyes would not relinquish. The Buckeyes played well enough in those two areas to gut out a typical cold-weather, November Big Ten grinder against Michigan State. To beat Michigan in two weeks, Ohio State will need its offense to be the third phase — the one that puts the team over the top and earns a berth in the Big Ten championship game for the second straight season. Ohio State led 7-6 heading into the seven half and had the ball in Michigan State territory in seven of eight possessions. The special teams set up a safety and Jones' fumble recovery TD. The offense settled for a field goal before Mike Weber finally scored on a two-yard TD run with 1:12 remaining. A BIG TEN STORY The alternate history of Notre Dame football That was the culmination of an uneven offense performance. Ohio State rushed 16 times for 14 yards in the first half. The Buckeyes stuck with the run for 27 attempts and 115 yards in the second half and averaged 2.9 yards per attempt. Good enough to beat Michigan State — especially with backup quarterback Tate Martell mixed in on third-and-short packages — but not still good enough for those larger goals. Dwayne Haskins finished 24 of 39 passing for 227 yards and a TD, part of a season in which he will break numerous passing records at Ohio State. Haskins, however, finished with a 59.1 completion percentage against Nebraska and Michigan State. That's going to need to tick back up to the mid-60s starting with next week's game at Maryland. Everyone knows which game follows. That's The Game against No. 4 Michigan, a team that should come into Columbus with the same stakes between the teams as 2016. Ohio State won that meeting 30-27 in double overtime. Those Buckeyes missed the Big Ten championship, but reached the College Football Playoff. The winner of The Game will have the opportunity to do both this season. Ohio State might not look like a Playoff team — and it won't until all three of those phases are clicking at the same time — but that is immaterial now. The Buckeyes have their biggest game (and perhaps games) ahead of them. This is the time to start playing their best football. In that regard, Ohio State is running out of chances to show that complete game.

    If the Playoffs started today 11/13

    To me the interesting part of this, will/can they squeak out 1 or 2 more wins and end up in the middle of the pack in another rebuilding draft year?

    Who gets Rookie of the week?

    Yeah the Cleveland icons Graham, Sipe, Plum......Mayfield? WHOA. ........oh on the NY bunch how did they win the game?
  12. 2019 Rivera 2020 Jeter should be near unanimous the rest of the class isn't really that strong -or- is tainted with the stink of steroids.....what can happen if the comissioner looks the other way at 70+ HRs and other abuses. Might actually give Vizquel and maybe even Lee a better shot at getting in, that would be nice following Thome. Now Hafner no shot. Sometimes it really is timing on things.
  13. It's 2 am November 13, 2018 thinking about sports including MLB well...... 2019 HOF chat: 2019 Top newcomers: Mariano Rivera, Roy Halladay, Todd Helton, Lance Berkman, Andy Pettitte, Roy Oswalt Top holdovers: Edgar Martinez, Mike Mussina, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Curt Schilling Most likely to be elected: Rivera, Halladay, Martinez Falling off: Fred McGriff Having received 70.4% in this year's election, Martinez is well positioned for 2019, his final year of eligibility. Stop me if you've heard this one, but 19 out of the 20 candidates to receive at least 70% and return to the ballot the following year (instead of aging off) were elected...... so Omar waits again? 2020 Top newcomers: Derek Jeter, Bobby Abreu, Jason Giambi, Paul Konerko, Adam Dunn, Cliff Lee <--- hey former Indian!Top holdovers: Mussina, Bonds, Clemens, Schilling, Walker, Vizquel <--- and maybe one of the top 3 or 5 SS players ever?Most likely to be elected: Jeter, MussinaFalling off: Walker .......Any chance a Cleveland Indian gets in in 2019 or 2020?

    20. PREDICTION: FALCONS 31, BROWNS 18. My record this season is 4-4-1 guessing results of Browns games. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Ooooops, goes to show how hard it is to predict what a very young team will do, how they will respond to changes in the NFL. AND the bye week, bad timing or what?
