Boulware had led Clemson with 116 tackles last season and had 11 1/2 tackles for loss and four sacks.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said Thursday Boulware will probably always play with a chip on his shoulder.

“If he had been taken in the first round, he would have rolled Cheap Discount Jerseys in with a chip on his shoulder. That’s just kind of who Ben is,” Swinney told reporters at the annual annual Prowl and Growl Tour in Greenville, S.C., via the Post and Courier. “But he’s a football player. He shines between the lines.

“There are always guys bigger, taller, faster and all that stuff but there’s very few that are going to play better. That has never changed for him. In his entire life playing football from peewee to middle school to high school to college, it’s not going to be any different at the next level. He’ll be just fine.”

Boulware was a twoyear starter at Clemson and a defensive captain. The knock on him coming out of Clemson is that he isn’t athletic enough to succeed at the next level. But it’s his intangibles that make him a coach’s dream. He was actually so excited to get to work, he showed up at Bank of America Stadium an hour and a half early to beat Charlotte traffic, then took a nap in his car until it was time to go.

Savage was the only QB draft pick in the first three years of the Bill O’Brien regime. But he’s a fourth-round flyer who was limited with an elbow injury late last season. He has little chance to provide legitimate results.

Watson, on the other hand, is a weapon the Texans haven’t had at quarterback, since, well, ever.

The Thunder already had to be perfect to compete with a team as gifted offensively as the Rockets

In all, the Thunder held a 14-point third-quarter lead. That advantage evaporated when Westbrook went to the bench. Oklahoma City outscored Houston by 14 points with its MVP front-runner on the floor. When he exited the game, the Rockets erased that lead wholly.

The Thunder’s late-game breakdown was reminiscent of their Game 2 woes, where the Oklahoma City offense reduced to ash behind Westbrook’s 18 fourth-quarter shot attempts. Of those 18, the Thunder guard only made four, while the rest of the team shot 4-of-11 in the final period.

The Thunder already had to be perfect to compete with a team as gifted offensively as the Rockets. Folding late in games won’t help their case, either.

Houston will look to wrap things up when they take Game 5 back home. The Thunder will need another Herculean effort from Westbrook, who posted both his third straight triple-double and the fastest playoff triple-double in the last 20 years, to stay alive.

If Oklahoma City wins, it earns a shot at redemption on its home floor in Game 6. But one thing is for sure: The Thunder can’t melt down the way they did in Game 2 — or on Sunday.

What LaVar Ball is looking for is similar to Michael Jordan’s Jordan Brand, which falls underneath the Nike umbrella but has a separate logo and its own athletes. Some of Adidas’ most successful sneaker lines, including Kanye West’s Yeezy line and the Jeremy Scott’s, are also co-branded, as are several of PUMA’s more popular sneakers.

In this respect, Ferraro is echoing voices of the game like THN’s Ken Campbell, another writer who’s been vocal in condemning the culture in the NHL that allows violence to escalate to this level.

Ferraro is consistent and openly condemning of dirty play wherever it comes from – as seen in a tweet today where someone asks “what about the Crosby slash on Methot” and he reacts equally disgustedly. Campbell, too, has written a column bemoaning the NHL’s lack of protection for “star players” like Crosby. Even Tie Domi (TIE DOMI!) has said that hockey needs to sort itself out and that the Pittsburgh Steelers Cheap Jerseys mentality of such things as “a hockey play” needs to be eliminated from the game.

Chris Paul is the world’s smallest bully.

He lit the world on fire as the Thundering Herd transitioned to I-A ball, gaining more than 3,500 yards and catching 58 touchdowns in just two seasons with the team. That primed him to be a potential top five pick in the NFL draft, but Moss struggled to stay out of his own way. When he missed the 1998 NFL Draft Combine, rumors spread it was thanks to his reticence to take a league drug test.

As Grant Brisbee wrote back when this happened, pitchers can barely be trusted to throw where they want to when they’re working in the strike zone. It’s pretty easy to screw up and hit someone in the head when you’re trying to throw behind him or in tight.

Chris Paul is the world’s smallest bully. The Jazz found that out the hard way on Friday night as the Clippers’ veteran point guard powered a second half comeback to give Los Angeles a 111-106 win in Game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead.

Paul has been in takeover mode late in games all series. That trend continued in Game 3. Paul scored 24 of his team-high 34 points in the second half to rally the Clippers back from a nine-point halftime deficit.

Paul wasn’t just scoring efficiently — he shot 12-of-22 from Wholesale Cheap Jerseys China the field — he also added 10 assists and seven rebounds. He was in complete command late in the game, making plays for himself and others.

Jazz mascot avenges little kid who was shoved by a Clippers fan during a bubble race

A fun event during the break in Clippers vs. Jazz turned ugly when the Clippers fan turned his inflatable ball around and rammed a small child representing the Jazz.

There was no reason for this. Clippers fan was clearly winning, he had a height and weight advantage as well as longer legs — there was no need to obliterate his opponent. Thankfully, Jazz Bear was there to play the role of enforcer and exact for sweet, sweet revenge.

I’m not one to condone violence, but Clippers kid was an ass. The brutality of the hit from Jazz Bear can’t be understated, either. Those giant inflatable balls are there to protect against collisions from the side. By Jazz Bear rocking the kid like this he just crashed straight into the floor, getting little (if any) protection from his inflatable prison.

Also, it should probably be noted that this was definitely all a setup by the team to spark a little home crowd hatred towards the Clippers.

He’s trying to throw an around-the-back pass to Kyrie Irving, but there’s absolutely no reason for him to do that. With the Cleveland Cavaliers up three and time running out, all Smith needed to do was keep dribbling and take the intentional foul, or perhaps toss it to Irving if possible with a safer pass. The only bad outlet would have been a turnover, and he did that. Sure, basketball is instinctual, but that’s a situation where Smith has to think smarter.

He knew, though! Here’s his sheepish reaction.

It didn’t cost Cleveland, because the good look that Paul George subsequently got missed badly and LeBron James clinched the game at the free throw line. But if George had hit that Cheap High Quality Soccer Jerseys shot and the Indiana Pacers won the game, Smith’s pass could’ve forced Cleveland to play another totally unnecessary Cheap Hats And Jerseys game instead of sweeping the first-round series.

Patriots say the White House comparison photos lack context, but they’re missing the point

The New England Patriots visited the White House on Wednesday, as is tradition, to celebrate their Super Bowl LI victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

Soon after that game, several prominent Patriots players — including Martellus Bennett, LeGarrette Blount, Devin McCourty, and Alan Branch — specifically said that they would not Super Cheap Jerseys China go because of President Donald Trump.

True to their word, they didn’t go. Neither did Tom Brady, who cited a personal reason, just like when he missed the trip two years ago during President Barack Obama’s term.

After the team met with Trump, the size of the turnout drew comparisons to when the Patriots visited Obama’s White House (not unlike the presidents’ respective inaugurations):

The New York Giants gambled, nevertheless, selecting him with the No. 23 pick of the 2017 NFL draft. They’ll hope he can round out his game in order to have as big an impact on the ground as he does through the air.

Engram led the Rebels in receiving yards and touchdowns (eight) last fall, filling the void vacated by Laquon Treadwell while giving quarterback Chad Kelly a mismatch over the middle. The All-American proved he can shoulder the load of an SEC passing offense, but he’s still got several questions to answer as he preps for his rookie season.

Mel Kiper has also mocked Curtis Samuel, Ohio State’s H-back and biggest playmaker NFL Jerseys Wholesale from 2016 to the Eagles. Samuel can play in many formations on offense, and is dangerous with the ball in his hands.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier confirmed on Wednesday that quarterback Josh Freeman has a concussion. If he can’t play on Sunday, Christian Ponder will get the start against the Green Bay Packers.

The loss hurts for the Bears, but the Cheap Jerseys Soccer China aftermath was much worse. Cutler is now out at least four weeks with a groin injury. Briggs will miss 4-6 weeks with a fracture in his shoulder. The Bears weren’t a great team heading into the game — they were already crushed by injuries and their deficiencies on the defensive line and in the secondary were clear as day. It stands to reason the one-two punch of losing your best offensive and defensive player in the same game will effectively end the season before it even had a chance to reach its halfway point.

The Bears accomplished plenty of good things this year, and there’s certainly reason for optimism moving forward. Marc Trestman was always a sneaky hire but now looks like a savvy one. He clicked with Cutler in a way no other Bears play caller ever has. The offense became the team’s identity for the first time maybe ever. The offensive line, forever Chicago’s Achilles heel under Lovie Smith, was totally rebuilt in one offseason and has played incredibly well. The Bears have given up the fourth fewest sacks in the NFL, a mind-blowing accomplishment given the dire state the unit was in a year ago.

But this is no time for silver linings. NFL football turns our country into a horde of compassionless lunatics because it always feels fleeting. Every game counts way too much, careers of stars can be altered on one down and the offseason feels eternal. That Chicago Cheap Jerseys Paypal Payment has to wait until next September for their team to get another fair shot the most disheartening thing of all.

Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather could be suspended for his head-hunting hit Sunday against the Chicago Bears, according to Jason La Confora.

Meriweather hit wide receivers Alshon Jeffery Cheap Jerseys Sites and Brandon Marshall in the head, being flagged twice in the 45-41 Washington victory. The former New England Patriots draft pick has been fined multiple times before for illegal hits, including a $42,000 fine last month for his hit on Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy.

Marshall, a former teammate of Meriweather when both played for the Bears, has seen enough of the safety and had some harsh words for him after the game, per NFL.com:

Meanwhile, Steven Schweickert at Bears blog Windy City Gridiron is still trying to figure out what to make of the proceedings. Sure the Bears lost, but they also lost their starting quarterback in the first half, not to mention Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman going down on top of an absent Henry Melton. All things considered, maybe the four-point loss wasn’t so bad …

… let me try to summarize what just happened yesterday: The Bears struggled offensively and defensively and let the Redskins run roughshod all over them in the first half, they lost their starting quarterback and put in Josh McCown, then in the second half briefly lost Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, as well as Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman, flubbed up a surprise onside kick, and still fought back in a shootout to eventually take a lead before losing in the last minute. It was either one Cheap Jerseys Paypal of the best games I’ve seen or the worst best game I’ve ever seen. And as of 5:40 AM on Monday morning, I still have no freaking idea what I just watched yesterday.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been cleared to play on Sunday against the New York Jets, but his status for the game is still up in the air, according to Pro Football Talk.

Gronkowski hasn’t played a game in the 2013 season as he recovers Cheap Jerseys Sale from multiple offseason surgeries to repair his back and forearm. After re-injuring his arm last season, Gronkowski is being extra cautious in his return from injury this time around.

All accounts have been that Gronkowski is dominating in practice and seems to be ready to play. This week was looking like Gronkowski’s best shot to return to the lineup after his team of doctors cleared him to play. He’s still officially listed as questionable on the Patriots injury report and will likely be a game time decision.

Without Gronkowski the Patriots’ offense has been without a top receiving option and hasn’t looked the same thus far in 2013.

The Denver Broncos have been rolling all season, and no team has been able to keep up with them. In fact, the major criticism the Broncos got in a 35-19 win over the Jaguars last week is that they didn’t cover the spread — only the largest in NFL history. It’ll be the first game against the Colts for Peyton Manning since he was let go before the 2012 offseason.

Any other team would dread the idea of a Manning-less team, but during a recent three-game win streak Andrew Luck has virtually washed Peyton from the minds of Indianapolis fans. He took down both the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks during the streak. With the addition of Trent Richardson, the Cheap Jerseys Outlet Shop Colts look like a serious playoff contender. Luck should have a field day against the Broncos secondary, which gives up a league worst 337 yards per game.

Top prospect to watch: For whatever reason, some people in the draft community seem to be down on UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley. Just take a moment to remember that Hundley is just a redshirt sophomore. Call it the Andrew Luck Effect or Teddy Bridgewater Syndrome. People just seem to expect too much too soon from quarterbacks now. UCLA faces its two toughest games of the season starting with Stanford today and Oregon next week. Both games will be important for Hundley, particularly since NFL types are Cheap Jerseys Premier League wondering about him now as well. From Albert Breer of NFL Network:

I spoke to one NFC executive who didn’t believe Hundley should be a first-round draft pick. Another NFC personnel exec disagreed, with a caveat: “He has big-time arm talent, and great athletic ability and speed, but he makes quite a few questionable decisions in every game.
Keep an eye on: Guards will be on display with this game with Stanford’s David Yankey and UCLA’s Xavier Su’a-Filo. Both are athletic guards capable of getting out on the second level and delivering blocks. Yankey is the better drive blocker while Su’a-Filo has a slight athleticism advantage.

More to watch: UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr has distinguished himself clearly as the best player at his position. Barr is an ultra-athletic pass rusher who is showing a more complete game this season. Stanford linebackers Shayne Skov and Chase Thomas have both been having good seasons. Skov Cheap Jerseys Online China leads the Cardinal in tackles while Murphy is on top in tackles for loss and sacks. Skov is a strong between-the-tackles linebacker while Murphy is capable to blitzing and has the instincts to break up passes. Stanford safety Ed Reynolds is having a quiet season, but he’s a solid tackler.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne is out for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, according to Adam Schefter.

Wayne was injured on a pass from Andrew Luck in the fourth quarter. The former Miami (Fla.) star went down to the turf to try and dig out a low throw and crumbled, holding his right knee before being helped off the field and into the locker room.

Over at Stampede Blue, Josh Wilson writes about what the loss of Wayne means to the team:

Johnson didn’t quite look like himself against the Cleveland Browns, likely because he wasn’t 100 percent healthy. He was on the sideline quite a bit, and he only had 3 catches for 25 yards. Sunday was a much different story, though. Johnson did look like himself again, and he finished with 9 catches for 155 yards and 2 touchdowns. One of those scores was the result of him out-jumping three defenders, so I think it’s safe to say Megatron is healthy again.
For the Bengals, Sunday’s win was just another example that the franchise has turned a corner, according to Josh Kirkendall at Bengals blog Cincy Jungle. The Bengals overcame several potentially crippling injuries and bad early mistakes to score a defining win.

It wasn’t the scoring that slapped their face with adversity. It was Leon Hall’s Achilles injury that momentarily cut Cincinnati’s sails. Rey Maualuga’s hamstring, Devon Still’s elbow, and Wallace Gilberry’s knee, forcing all of them out of the game. Reggie Nelson, Michael Johnson Cheap Jerseys Toronto and Marvin Jones also suffered injuries, thankfully returning at some point during their respective exits. It was Jermaine Gresham’s multiple penalties that ended possessions, one that resulted in a missed Mike Nugent field goal.

Everything that happened reverts back to the Cheap Jerseys UK old, “these are not the games that the old Bengals would have won.” Like they did against the Bills, the Bengals slapped all of today’s adversity back with the vengeance of a Chuck Norris roundhouse kick.
