Hassan Whiteside tips in game-winner for Heat in game with playoff implications

This amazing game winner from the Miami Heat — and even more amazing celebration — has major playoff implications for both them and the Detroit Pistons, two teams duking it out for final playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. After James Johnson missed an attempted shot to put Miami ahead, and Goran Dragic missed a follow-up, it was Hassan Whiteside who tipped it back in as time expired.

Seven teams between the No. 5 and 10 seed in the Eastern Conference are separated by five games — Miami sits at 36-38 in the No. 8 seed now, while Detroit is 34-41 and 2.5 games back of them. The Pistons have been tumbling, but with the regular season coming down to the final weeks, it’s good for Miami to tie up the season series vs. Detroit.

San Diego Chargers – Jason Verrett, Cornerback, TCU: D.J. Fluker has turned out to be a nice find for the Chargers, solidifying the offensive line for the time being. In fact, San Diego would be a more competitive team if the defense could hold up a bit better against the pass. Jason Verrett has moved into the No. 1 spot on our cornerback rankings, so he slides into this spot.

Tennessee Titans – C.J. Mosley, Linebacker, Alabama: It’s tough to imagine C.J. Mosley falling too far on draft day considering he has the versatility to play inside and outside linebacker in any defensive alignment. Due to need, he slips just out of the top 10, but the Titans would be happy to add Mosley. He’s comfortable in coverage but has the burst and first step to impact the game as a pass rusher as well.

Limited Kids Ronald Leary Jersey Cleveland Browns – Taylor Lewan, Offensive Tackle, Michigan: The Browns have been much better than most expected in 2017, despite going through three different quarterbacks already this season. Brandon Weeden is on his last legs in Cleveland, but the team may not be in a position to get a signal caller who fits its system with this pick. Addressing the offensive tackle spot opposite Joe Thomas makes the most sense in terms of need.

Percy Harvin to rejoin team soon, Doug Martin to IR and more

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin should rejoin the team for practice following the team’s Week 10 game, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Harvin sustained a hip injury in the offseason that required surgery to repair and has been on the physically unable to perform list all season. He’s eligible to be activated to the 53-man roster at any time, but Seattle doesn’t have to do so for a while.

Josh Freeman remains on the roster and can move the ball downfield, but his passes have found too many opponents’ hands in 2017. The Vikings will not play Freeman simply because of his $3 million price tag. On Thursday night, the team understood that its key to success was a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson, and while the MVP running back wasn’t always successful, his two touchdowns were critical in pushing Minnesota to an unlikely win.

Sunday’s game is holding even, with a 1.5-point edge to Baltimore being the largest margin currently available. Even on the road it’s difficult to look past the Bengals, who are one of the best teams in the NFL when their offense is firing on all cylinders. If Andy Dalton and A.J. Green can get in a rhythm, it will be impossible for the Ravens to stay in step.

Many people much smarter then me have been openly speculating that Jonathan Martin of the Dolphins doesnt have the drive to get bullied or play football anymore- and that this whole manufactured rage at his White teammates calling him the N-Word and threatening to kill him is a way for Martin to make a quck buck in a lawsuit on his way out the door. I wouldnt put it past RG3 to follow this trend, except he’s using his knees as a vehicle to cash-in instead of using them as a vehicle to win-out. 7

Father of Lions CB Chris Houston accused in Sam Hurd drug case

The father of Detroit Lions cornerback Chris Houston has been accused of drug smuggling by the attorney of former Chicago Bears receiver Sam Hurd during Hurd’s sentencing Wednesday, according to the Detroit Free Press’ Dave Birkett.

Hurd’s attorney, Michael McCrum, presented phone records in court on Wednesday that suggested that Larry Houston was the primary partner in a drug smuggling plot.

We say relatively close because the Broncos are no 8-1 and have been dominating competition, so an eight point loss isn’t all that bad, though the Chargers are now under .500 because of said loss. Miami’s loss to Tampa Bay was embarrassing because the Buccaneers are simply a mess right now, and were winless heading into their prime time matchup.

That said, the Dolphins did open as narrow favorites over the Chargers at home. They opened as 1.5-point favorites, though the line has shifted in favor of the Chargers, according to OddsShark. The Chargers can be had favored by as much as 2.5 points, and that could widen further throughout the week.

Limited Womens Sammy Baugh Jersey Miami likely got the initial nod from odds makers due to home-field advantage, but the Chargers are seen as the better team by just about everyone, and the loss to Tampa Bay sealed the deal. The over/under for the matchup opened at 45.5 points. That total has gone under in four of San Diego’s last five games, but over in six of Miami’s last eight.

Andrew Shaw Limited Jersey
Since being selected 60th overall in the 2014 draft, Ealy has racked up 14 sacks in three seasons. He has also forced six fumbles and added one interception during that time.

Jamon Brown Limited Jersey Not always a starter for Carolina, Ealy will likely take free agent Jabaal Sheard’s spot in the Patriots’ defense.

New England already signed former Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore to a massive contract, and has been hot on the rumor mill for Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks.

Despite coming back to win the Super Bowl last month, it’s clear the Patriots are not content. They always try to improve their roster.

In three years with the Trojans, Jackson certainly racked up the r茅sum茅 of a first-round pick. The cornerback started his career as the Pac-12 Defensive Freshman of the Year in 2014 and finished it two years later as the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year. He earned consensus All-American honors and edged LSU鈥檚 Tre鈥橠avious White and Michigan鈥檚 Jourdan Lewis for the 2016 Jim Thorpe Award.

Yet, few mock drafts project Jackson to hear his name called on the first night of the 2017 NFL draft. In a strong class for defensive backs, Jackson has been lost in the shuffle at just 5鈥?0, 186 pounds.

Indianapolis has a lot of work to do on defense.

It’s a low risk move for Seattle on a one-year deal that pays Lacy $5.55 million. That’s a lot of “China food.” Minutes after Lacy signed there were reports about his weight circulating. It’s something to keep an eye, but not as big of a question as his ability to stay healthy. Seattle already has Thomas Rawls, but there’s reason to wonder about his health too. C.J. Prosise is another good runner on the roster and another one who struggles with durability. Between the three of them, they ought to get 16 good games.

Don’t judge the deal by the rounds, New England is only moving down eight spots. And in return, they get a former second-round pick who had a huge game in the Super Bowl last year. He’s been a disappointment other than that, but the Patriots have a knack for turning those players around.

Indianapolis has a lot of work to do on defense. Signing a mid-level pass rusher like Sheard is a good move toward that. Three years, $25.5 million with $12.75 guaranteed for a guy who picked up 13 sacks in two years with the Patriots. He’s also a solid presence defending the run.

Instead, Wichita and Kentucky will have the second-round rematch neither coach wanted and no one asked for. It will likely be a great game: There are only four squads in the country ranked in the top 20 of both offensive and defensive efficiency, and these are two of them. It’s a shame that stat can’t be as meaningful as it sounds.

A win for Wichita won’t erase the pain of 2014, especially when it will still possibly have to go through both UCLA and North Carolina to reach the Final Four. The path in the South region would be comically hard if, to quote Marshall, it wasn’t so ironic and sad.

There is only one party here that can count itself as a winner, and that’s us: the people who love watching college basketball. We’re about to see a big time game. It’s just unfortunate that we have to see it right now.7

I don’t get all of that, but I get part of it, especially if you were dining in the solarium.

It’s just as well, dude. If someone starts jamming that, he’ll start singing the lyrics. “Yo! What up? It is crime time in the city. It is time for the Sopranos. Watch out for James Soprano, he is a number one criminal. I am Greg Schiano and welcome to my song, idiots. Get out of my song! Get out of my song! The Sopra-nooooooooos.”

He became angry with you, friend, because he knows that the wood-chopping game has been taken over by folks rich enough to go camping and live in cabins on purpose, and he’ll be damned if the lower class takes that away from ’em.

I don’t get all of that, but I get part of it, especially if you were dining in the solarium. The window’s curved! You can see out of the ceiling! Are you in a restaurant or a greenhouse or a spaceship? The exotic lighting contributes to a general reality-warping disarray. I once walked in with some fries and a large chili, and walked out pulling a wooden wagon full of glowing scrolls containing language I didn’t understand. I tell people I am 31 years old to be polite, but I am actually 37,814. That’s Dave’s way.

To do so would require drastic improvement, but who is better-suited to pull a statistical u-turn than a first-year player? Andrew Luck threw eight touchdown passes to eight interceptions through seven games last season, and went 15-10 the rest of the way. Russell Wilson had eight touchdown passes to seven interceptions through seven games last season, and finished the year 18-3. Rookie quarterbacks improve fast.

Game Youth Whitney Mercilus Jersey Cincinnati will be tough, but Smith does have one thing clearly in his favor: The Bengals will be without top cornerback Leon Hall, who was placed on injured reserve this week with a torn Achilles tendon. Hall graded out as the fifth-best corner in the NFL through Week 7, according to Pro Football Focus.

6 NFL free agent signings we want to see in 2017

Some free agent signings are destined to change the trajectory of a franchise. Peyton Manning and Reggie White were the missing pieces that returned the Broncos and Packers, respectively, to glory. Drew Brees turned the Saints from rudderless also-ran into a world championship club. Curtis Martin jumped ship from the Patriots to become the Jets’ all-time leading rusher.

But for every natural fit, there are several more missed opportunities that made sense on paper but never came to fruition. Barry Sanders never left Detroit, instead choosing to re-sign with the team that shackled him to a 1-5 postseason record. Larry Fitzgerald’s unwavering loyalty to Arizona prevented him from playing in wide receiver Xanadu with Tom Brady and the Patriots. Franchises can share the blame for these missed opportunities, as well; Miami passed on signing Brees in favor of luring Daunte Culpepper to South Beach.

The Texans have a dominant defense, and that’s how Houston has managed to make the playoffs in each of the past two seasons with a carousel of ineptitude at quarterback. In 2015, Houston won its division by virtue of the division being the AFC South, despite the fact that they had to work with Brian Hoyer, T.J. Yates, Brandon Weeden, and even B.J. Daniels behind center for a couple of snaps.

Last franchise quarterback: Because the Texans are such a young franchise, there are really only three quarterback eras in team history — David Carr, Matt Schaub, and then this mess that started with Ryan Fitzpatrick. Schaub was actually pretty consistent and pretty good for the most part, when he was healthy, from 2007 through 2013.7
