Bowles not focused on draft position The Jets’ surprise 20-6 win over the Dolphins ensured they will not be an 0-16 candidate. However, it may not help their draft positioning going forward. Coach Todd Bowles, though, is not worried about that. We block all that stuff out. We’re trying to win ball games because we want to get to the Super Bowl, Bowles said. Not sure whether he kept a straight face while doing so.
I’m a dog, so I acted like a dog Odell Beckham Jr. celebrated his first of two touchdowns for the Giants by walking like a dog and lifting his leg, drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. His explanation was as odd as the celebration. I don’t know �� I was in the end zone, I scored a touchdown I’m a dog, so I acted like a dog, Beckham said. I don’t know if the rule book said, ‘You can’t hike your leg.’
Now, O’Brien is at a coaching crossroads for a team that had high expectations with Watt returning to a loaded defense. The Jaguars, however, were the better defense, and adding insult to insult is that much-maligned Blake Bortles didn’t have to do much to be the best starting QB on the field.
The Colts will only be a totally lost cause until Andrew Luck returns. The Titans, despite losing to a very good Oakland team at home, can still boast the division’s best QB in Marcus Mariota.
NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith also issued a statement Saturday morning in response to Trump’s comments.
Whether or not Roger and the owners will speak for themselves about their views on player rights and their commitment to player safety remains to be seen, Smith said. This union, however, will never back down when it comes to protecting the constitutional rights of our players as citizens as well as their safety as men who compete in a game that exposes them to great risks.
The NFLPA released an expanded statement later Saturday morning, saying that it makes no apologies for protecting the rights of its members, which includes freedom of speech.
