Ben McAdoo: I let Odell Beckham down

Former Giants coach Ben McAdoo is reflecting on what went wrong in his brief stint with the team, and one thing he’s realized is that he didn’t do enough to connect with star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Although Beckham put up big numbers in McAdoo’s offense, McAdoo said in Peter King’s Football Morning in America that he should have done more for Beckham than just call a lot of passes for him.

I wrote the other day on the Jameis Winston situation, and I don’t have a ton else to add. But I will say that I believe, and others do too, that Winston’s willingness to take the penalty without fighting would be a factor in the league’s discipline. And I think it’s a factor for Winston too, in that it would allow him to move past the incident fairly quickly.

It’s the Patriots system, one of the greatest systems in the NFL, Butler said, via Robert Klemko of You can tell Mike played for Belichick because you can see some of the similarities. They’re about winning the way New England is about winning.

One thing I saw early: Mike will put you on blast. He don’t care who’s around. He’s going to say what’s right. He might be a bit looser than Bill Belichick, but they’re both great guys. A man caught a ball on me—honestly I don’t know his name yet—but Mike let me hear about it. ‘Don’t get stuck on top of the routes like that! Make a play!’ Nobody cares where you come from or what you make. Everyone’s equal. And you can tell from the head coach all the way down to the interns, everybody wants to win.

While that kind of egalitarianism might have hastened his departure from New England, Butler sounds excited about his fresh start (and doubtless the money that goes with it).

Robert Smith, Vikings running back: My agent called me on the first lunch break of the first training camp practice and said How’s Randy look? And I told him, I’ve never seen anything like this. I had a track background, ran in a race against Carl Lewis. I’ve never seen anyone like Randy. I’ve never seen anyone as smooth. I told my agent after that first practice that if he stayed healthy, he’d be in the Hall of Fame.

The Rookie QB Roundtable: Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson

Michael Bennett, who will be honored for his activism and community outreach at The Inaugural Athletes for Impact Awards on Monday night. The awards ceremony in Los Angeles commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the 1968 Olympics held in Mexico, when Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised gloved fists to protest racial inequality in the United States.

I take issue with criticism of Terrell Owens for not attending his Hall of Fame induction, choosing instead to host fans at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. If you could celebrate this special moment at your alma mater, with as many friends and family in attendance as you’d like, rather than attending a ceremony in Canton with limited accommodation for family and friends and the awkwardness of hobnobbing with the journalists who for some reason are the lone gatekeepers to the Hall of Fame, wouldn’t you?

In non-cornerback news, last week was a stunningly bad one for the NFL. Jaguars defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is being sued for sexual assault by two separate women. Bills running back LeSean McCoy is embroiled in a bizarre home invasion incident. Onetime Browns tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. has been charged with multiple sexual assaults. Sherman’s former Seahawks teammate Brandon Browner was charged with attempted murder and several other crimes. Former NFL editor Melissa Jacobs chronicled all the bad news in one biting tweet, and the response was eye-opening. A few years ago, when I started covering the NFL, a post like that would have floated without much pushback from anybody. But Jacobs’s mentions blew up with people pointing out the good being done by NFL players.

Former Giants WR Victor Cruz: Ben McAdoo firing a couple weeks ‘too late’

As for the quarterbacks the team passed on with the No. 2 pick, he had an opinion on that too.

With the guys that came out this year, I’m not surprised they went the route they went by not drafting a guy, McAdoo said. I wouldn’t have stood on the table to draft any quarterback No. 2 either.

Later in the afternoon, an unidentified Instagram user shared an explicit photo of a woman, identified as McCoy’s on-and-off girlfriend Delicia Cordon, with cuts and bruises on her face alleging McCoy struck her. The Instagram post has since been deleted.

Cody Allen: The difference between last year and this year is about three runs. He has basically walked one extra batter and allowed one extra home run, which, by strict accounting purposes, has turned him from one of the game’s best closers to a below-average one.

Andrew Miller: He was awesome all April — a 0.00 ERA, and batters hit .162/.279/.216 against him — before he went on the 10-day disabled list with a hamstring strain. When he came back, he was wild, and over the course of six appearances — 25 batters faced — he was hit for a .368/.520/.842 line. Then he went back on the disabled list with knee inflammation.

Officials were called to the home owned by McCoy in the Atlanta suburb where his former girlfriend Delicia Cordon was living. Upon arrival, officers discovered one victim who had been physically assaulted by a lone intruder.

At about 3:28 a.m. the police log says: The caller poss[ibly] thinks her ex boyfriend poss[ibly] set her up.

Even though the caller wasn’t identified, it’s believed Cordon was on the phone with police. In a separate note, The caller adv[ised] she got beat in the head and locked in the bathroom and the caller said, My face is demolished.

Think about which hitters teams shift against. They shift on guys who drive the ball. By trying to hit a ground ball to short — which is the one spot on the infield where you would be able to beat the shift — that’s exactly what they want you to do.

Carson Wentz wasn’t shy at all about showing his off.

And if you wanna go really deep, here is a video from the Eagles on all that went into making the rings.

219 diamonds. 17 green sapphires. And 1 dog mask.

Look, you never know when you’re going to get another Super Bowl ring, so why not dress in your flyest suit when it’s time to get one? All players came in clean, but Malcolm Jenkins, LeGarrette Blount, and Brent Celek were easily the best dressed.

A week ago, the Philadelphia Eagles’ — or at least Nick Foles’ — visit to the White House was canceled. This week, the entire team got together to celebrate its first ever Super Bowl victory when the players received their championship rings Thursday night.

In some ways, though, the festivities haven’t stopped. As soon as the Eagles sealed their 41-33 win over the New England Patriots, the party erupted on the field, in the locker room, and on the streets of Philadelphia (horse poop consumption and greased-up poles included).

President Donald Trump asked NFL players who to pardon. Here’s how they responded

The president wanted recommendations. He got them from the Players’ Coalition.

In order to do that, he must lead.

David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell, Aaron Donald, and other stars are also looking to get money and security this offseason. Salaries in the NFL are going to continue to rise, and in a league where contracts aren’t guaranteed, players have to get their money when they can, and avoid injury when possible.

It’s easy for fans and media to play up a contract dispute. The NFL offseason can get boring, and people need something to talk about. Jones is a superstar player who will go down as one of the best Falcons to ever wear the red and black. If there’s even a sniff of something like a contract dispute, no matter the circumstances between the two sides, people will drench it in gas and attempt to throw a match to it, because that’s a fun thing to do when you’re bored.

The NFL enacted its controversial rule May 24, striking a compromise between owners and the league’s front office that gives teams the choice to remain in the locker room for the pregame ceremony — but also gives the league the authority to fine teams if players do not show respect during the anthem. The rule also gives teams the power to punish players who violate the rule.

Eagles players did not protest or kneel during the national anthem at all during the 2017 season.

Some players elected to demonstrate before games, but not during the anthem itself — despite the White House’s claim that players planned to skip the ceremony over the president’s insistence they stand during the anthem.

Players were active throughout the season in raising awareness to social justice issues and supporting the movement which Colin Kaepernick began. Chris Long donated his salary to help education equality, while Malcolm Jenkins has worked alongside the NFL to raise money for social causes.

The Eagles will be the first team since 1980 to not have any representation at a White House celebration. The tradition began with President Jimmy Carter and the Pittsburgh Steelers following Super Bowl XIV and remained constant until now, even when players skipped the event for various reasons.

The NFL tried to appease the White House by issuing its new national anthem policy, but it wasn’t enough for President Donald Trump. Now Eagles players, who did not protest during the anthem are being put in the cross hairs by dishonest outlets trying to make them out to be the villains.

Romo wouldn’t have been able to fix everything either, especially their tough schedule, a weak secondary, and the injuries to defensive playmakers like J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus. But it’s those losses after Watson’s injury that Romo could have helped make up for.

In their last nine games, the Texans beat the Cardinals and no one else. By the final month, they were forced to start T.J. Yates when Savage suffered a scary concussion and ended the season on a six-game losing streak. They finished with a 4-12 record.

If Romo had been playing, healthy and effective, Houston could still be hanging around in the playoff race in early November. From there, 3-5 more wins seems doable, in addition to their real one against the Cardinals. The most likely candidates for those extra victories: the Colts (twice), 49ers, and maybe the Ravens and Titans (again). Topping the playoff-bound Rams, Jaguars, and Steelers would’ve been much more difficult.

The only reason Houston isn’t saddled with the worst QB luck label is that the Browns exist. Matt Schaub had a couple of good seasons — and a legitimately great one — but was also injured in 2011 in what could’ve been and should’ve been a special year for the team. From 2014-16, the Texans started eight different quarterbacks, due to injuries and general Osweilerian incompetence.

How many titles do you expect LeBron and the Lakers to win in the next three seasons?

MacMullan: If Durant had re-upped with Golden State for four more years, I’d be tempted to say zero. But Golden State has some major financial decisions to make in the next two seasons with Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, so I will say one championship on this LeBron victory tour.

Remember, though, there are the Celtics and Sixers, who two seasons from now (maybe sooner) will have allowed all their young talent to marinate into a hungry collection of stars who will be gunning for the West. And need I remind you the Rockets were one hamstring away from the Finals? LeBron appears ageless, but even the greatest stars of all time eventually fall prey to two old, familiar foes: injury and age.

Elhassan: This question is basically asking how long the Warriors are going to stay together. There will come a day when Golden State’s ownership might find the tax bills to be unpalatable and make basketball decisions based on financial reasons, and if someone is going to step up and fill that void, it will be LeBron James.

Pelton: If I had to bet on one outcome, I’d probably say zero. The Warriors are still around, and other challengers are forming. I still think going to the Rockets or the 76ers would have given James a better chance of winning a championship. That said, the average outcome for James is probably closer to one championship than none.

Because more teams could be operating with max cap space next summer, Irving should have plenty of suitors outside of Boston if he remains healthy. Irving is willing to bet on that entering the offseason.

Like with rookie Terry Rozier (more on him later), finances and roster flexibility might prevent veteran forward Marcus Morris from getting an extension offer. Entering the last year of the below-market contract he signed in Phoenix, Morris is eligible for a four-year, $46 million extension that would begin in 2019-20. Boston will need to be cautious in exploring extension talks with Morris, even if he’s interested. The Celtics could be adding four first-round picks in 2019 while Rozier and Irving are up for new, expensive deals.

A possible extension for Spencer Dinwiddie will need to wait until Dec. 8, when the guard reaches the second-year anniversary of his current contract.

Velasquez was struck in the forearm by Adam Eaton’s liner in the second inning.

He dropped his glove, hustled to retrieve the ball as it deflected toward third base, and unleashed a strong toss with his opposite arm that nipped the speedy Eaton at first for the final out.

I tried to finish the play, Velasquez said.

X-rays were negative, a better result than he anticipated.

I thought something was broken, he said. Thanks to God, nothing is severe.

Kapler said Velasquez would be further evaluated on Sunday. The pitcher said it was up in the air whether he would be able to take his next turn in the rotation.

We’ll see how it feels, he said.

We felt very strongly that it wasn’t, Green said. That was not the story of the baseball game by any stretch. I don’t think we were very clean early in the game. We did what we’ve done very recently which is show a lot of fight late. It was just a little too late.

I told him he was a stupid hitter, Melvin joked. He might have had eight homers if he would have stopped hitting the ball to center field, but he finally got one over their head.

The Tigers loaded the bases with three two-out singles in the sixth, but Manaea struck out Niko Goodrum to end the inning.

The A’s have won their last nine games against Detroit, their longest streak against the Tigers since Lefty Grove and Jimmie Foxx led the Philadelphia Athletics to 10 straight wins over Detroit in 1931.
