Onside Kick Family Hour: Arian Foster, Eric Berry & staying cool one week before training camp

It’s hot outside, and just in time for training camps to get started next week. Have fun practicing out there. But there is a way to stay to cool, with some red-hot NFL talk on this week’s new podcast.

On the Family Hour, Stephen White and I are talking about all kinds of hot topics burning up the NFL world right now. This week’s show includes:

The Vikings earned a spot in the playoffs in Mike Gartner Jersey eight of his first nine seasons with the franchise, racking up a 97-62 record in his 10 seasons with the team. He later had an unsuccessful stint with the Cardinals, from 2004 through 2006, that was best remembered for Green’s epic postgame outburst after a Monday Night Football loss to the highly-touted Chicago Bears.

He was fired after the 2006 season, but the talent he acquired in Arizona was instrumental in building the 2008 team that went to the Super Bowl. Under Green’s watch, the Mike Richter Jersey Cardinals’ draft picks included Larry Fitzgerald, Darnell Docket and Antrel Rolle.

“All of us at the Cardinals are incredibly saddened by the news of Dennis Green’s passing,” team president Michael Bidwill said in a statement on Friday. “Coach Green will rightly be remembered as a true innovator, leader and pioneer among football coaches. We express our deepest sympathy to his family and his many friends.”

After his time with the Cardinals, Green briefly coached in the United Football League for the Sacramento Mountain Lions. In 2014, he won a lawsuit against the league for failing to honor his $1.5 million contract.

Green’s career record as a coach in the NFL was 113-94. His 113 wins are No. 33 in the NFL history.

Seahawks DE Michael Bennett prods NFL stars to speak out for social change

Following a spree of violence between the African-American community and law enforcement earlier this month, NBA star Carmelo Anthony called on his peers to advocate for social change. Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett is echoing Anthony’s words.

In an interview during James Hanna Jersey training camp Saturday, the outspoken Bennett chastised other black players across the league for staying silent on the issues of racial strife and problems that plague the NFL — such as head trauma and the details of the collective bargaining agreement.

“The women and WNBA have really stood up for what they want, and I think that it’s time for the players in the NFL,” Bennett said via ESPN, referencing the WNBA players who recently wore black warmup shirts to support the Black Lives Matter movement. “But a lot of things in the NFL are so broken. You don’t see a lot of great players talking about things socially, whether Jason Witten Jersey it’s Peyton Manning or Aaron Rodgers, all of these guys, they’re white. They don’t have to deal with the things that we deal with as black players, so it’s not as many.”

“As athletes, we need to start controlling that influence and keep it positive and not always about dollar to dollar. Finding a way to make something sustainable so when we’re in the community, make a sustainable event, make a sustainable thing in the community, not so much about money,” Bennett said. “That’s the whole thing I had about the thing with Stephen Curry. It was not about the money aspect. It was about creating something for kids where they can learn and want to give back.”

It’s safe to say that Miller won’t be competing to be the Broncos’ kicker this season. Based on his track record at outside linebacker as well as his performance so far in training camp, letting Miller focus on that role is probably in the best interests of the team.

Gary Kubiak even had to put an extra offensive lineman on the field to try and contain Miller in Sunday’s practice.

“He looked like he wore a couple of people out,” Kubiak said via the team’s website. “We put a tackle at tight end to try to make it a little more of an even match and it still didn’t work out.”

And Miller didn’t let his bad kick dampen his spirits.

Because sometimes… you just need to dance.

Miller’s kick was fun to watch for different reasons, but at this point it’s clear that the Broncos are responsible for the most entertaining plays during this training camp period.

Rob Gronkowski will not play in Patriots’ season opener

After battling a hamstring injury for weeks, tight end Rob Gronkowski will not be able to play this week when the New England Patriots open the season against the Cardinals in Arizona on Sunday Night Football. The Patriots confirmed the news on Friday night after it was reported that Gronkowski didn’t travel with the team.

In the first quarter Brandon Pettigrew Jersey against the Philadelphia Eagles — a team that finished No. 30 in defense a year ago — the Browns had three dropped passes and exactly zero first downs.

It also featured a comically awful fake punt attempt that saw punter Britton Colquitt line up as a blocker, only to just kind of run around and do nothing:

The Browns aren’t even close to buried by the Eagles, though. Cleveland finally got a first down early in the second quarter and followed it with a 44-yard bomb to Terrelle Pryor:

The big play by the former Ohio State and Oakland Raiders quarterback put the Browns in scoring range, and Isaiah Crowell punched it in to cut the Eagles’ lead to 10-7.

It was a good bounce-back from a horrible Calvin Johnson Jersey start, but another ridiculous mistake in the third quarter gave the Eagles a pair of easy points:

It looks like Browns might be missing Alex Mack a bit. And maybe leave the poorly designed fake punts in the playbook, Hue.

But on the NFL’s welcome back night, Cam Newton absorbed several dangerous blows to the head. Most were unpenalized and none resulted in the reigning MVP being removed from the game for further evaluation.

“There was communication between medical personnel on the Carolina sideline including the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant, and the two independent certified athletic trainer spotters in the booth,” an NFL spokesman said in a statement on Friday morning, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. “During stoppage in play while on-field officials were in the process of administrating penalties, the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant and team physician requested video from the spotters and reviewed the play. They concluded there were no indications of a concussion that would require further evaluation and the removal of the player from the game.”

The conclusion that Newton had no indications of a concussion is an odd one to make, especially after a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit in the fourth quarter from Denver Broncos safety Darian Stewart that finally drew a penalty and left Newton facedown on the field.

It’s like they all hypnotized themselves before stepping foot Oakland

It’s like they all hypnotized themselves before stepping foot Oakland. By the end of the, the trance break and Schaub be over the corner of the locker, scrawling out JFK assassination theories his own feces. For the inevitable moment Week 4 when Schaub throws five picks and someone the crowd launches a Xavier Cooper Jersey Molotov cocktail at him, the Raiders drafted Carr the second round. I have a soft spot heart for Carr because his baby went through the same life-threatening surgery that mine did. I’m rooting for him and I wish him nothing but the best. All that said, we’re talking about Carr’s brother here. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, I am probably the Oakland Raiders. Carr is gonna BLOW. It’s only the preseason and he’s already gotten concussed. All the family. What’s new that sucks: Oh, you mean apart from the owner standing out on the curb and flashing his at any potential relocation spot that drives by? has already publicly batted his eyes at San and Los. Promise him a steak dinner and he’ll probably move the team to Branson. The Raiders’ lease Antonio Gates Jersey at Penitentiary ends after this, and they’ve already balked at joining the Niners Santa to be the Jets to their Giants, which means this probably marks the end of the Oakland Raiders as you know them. There be a few extra parking lot stabbings this fall, just for old time’s sake. And for their farewell tour, the Raiders went out and really Raiders’ up the joint, snatching up every possible 2008 All Pro they could. Here’s Tuck! And half of Jones-! And Lamarr Woodley! And Rogers ! Pills be administered at 430pm sharp.

Dinner’s a 5. Bingo at 6. But that’s not all. The team also stuck to their tradition of drafting wideouts too high and or paying them too much free agency by bringing Jones from the Packers, because bringing old Packers wideouts has always worked really well for them. Jones scored three touchdowns for the Packers last. And that was with Rodgers throwing him the ball. catch more passes from Schaub this than Jones. What has always sucked: After died, there was a collective sense of relief, a feeling that the Raiders could finally wrest themselves from the old ‘s grip and become a legitimate NFL franchise again.

And yet, here they are two years later, still fucking up every conceivable way. They can’t get the old stink off, and they haven’t done anywhere near enough to distance themselves from ‘ legacy. The Raiders treat like Il-Sung. They probably have him preserved like Lenin the stadium somewhere. His influence still permeates the club, from the facilities, to the product on the field, to the fans. Oh God, the fans. These moron fans are still living off the rep of Raiders teams from FIFTY years ago. They won’t let the team be anything other than sequel. They desperately need the Raiders to be RENEGADES and OUTLAWS, all at the expense of moving into the 21 st century and learning how to be a functional organization that can actually win football. It’s pathetic. The fans are sad and the stadium is sad. When I watch a Raiders home game on television, I feel confined and depressed by the stadium and I’m not even it. Also, McFadden is still here. Christ. What might not suck: I got nothing. Oh, there are new linemen! That sounds okay. Hear it from Raiders fans! Halston: I recently took up disc golf, and when I throw I truly have no idea where disc go. It might go straight, it might sail into a pond, it might hit a tree. I am just like Schaub. Fuck Khalif Barnes.Our stadium is full of hot garbage, literally.There’s a fantasy league that doesn’t really follow football, he always drafts guys that were big names about 4 years ago but have clearly bottomed out. This has been the Raiders’ approach to free agency every year that I’ve been alive. Kethia: I once took the train the same day there was a Raiders game and a S&M festival.

there has been a slew of negative news about Palin.

It is hard for his message to ring true: If you elect me I finally clean up Washington, having been there for 30 years said Professor Masket, a political scientist at Denver University. ‘It is a really hard Josh McCown Jersey needle to thread The economy is not the on which McCain wanted to fight the election. His line last week that ‘the fundamentals of our economy are strong’ was the latest a list of verbal mistakes he has made over economic issues. The subject has been a weak one for Republicans ever since the Bush administration turned a surplus into a massive deficit and jobless figures started creeping up. A recent Washington Post poll found that people preferred Obama on the economy by 51 per cent to 39 per cent.

Almost three-quarters of Justin Gilbert Jersey people said Obama understood their economic problems, compared with only 53 per cent who thought McCain felt that way. Certainly McCain’s recent successes the polls have not been built on his economic image. Instead they were boosted by a tough, disciplined message machine that had successfully torn into Obama’s image and accused him of being elitist, liberal and sexist. But now that apparatus of attack is starting to splutter too. Reporters on McCain’s campaign plane recently staged a protest against a decision to cut off access to McCain. They chanted ‘Bring Mac back!’ as they sat their plane seats. The demonstration had little impact but showed how broken relations have become with the press corps that once fawned upon the candidate. At the same time, the hard-edged anti-Obama attacks have become extreme that many commentators have accused the campaign of outright lies. Even the conservative Fox News channel joined the debate when one of its anchors publicly ripped into a senior McCain spokesman on air for misrepresenting Obama’s tax plans.

Finally, to add to the misery, there has been a slew of negative news about Palin. After first promising to co-operate the Troopergate investigation Alaska, she has now refused to testify. So has her husband, Todd. The McCain campaign is taking the whole issue seriously that it has dispatched a rapid response team to Alaska to rebut the regular new revelations emerging from the state. The effort is being directed by lawyer O’Callaghan, a McCain who was previously a terrorist expert. Polls have shown that the story has damaged Palin, and a carefully planned media rollout, via a series of TV interviews, has done little to blunt it. After massive swings her direction after her stunning debut at the Republican convention, the pendulum of popularity has started to reverse course. Last week one poll showed Palin registering 11-point drop support among women. Another showed white women voters going back to Obama by a margin of 21 points. Not that anyone could tell that from Palin’s performance Iowa. When not shouting over the noise of protesters, she doggedly delivered her trademark speech, complete with introduction of her husband as ‘First Dude’ and touting her experience as a ‘mom’. She exuded confidence and kept up the barrage of attacks on Obama. ‘He likes to point the finger of blame she said of the Democratic candidate ‘But has he ever really lifted a finger to help The message is aimed at people like Ron Eversman and small towns like, Iowa. Eversman, a baker, was sitting last week the neat square at the heart of, a town surrounded by cornfields and reeling from the closure of a factory and the loss of hundreds of jobs. It is a story repeated all over and uppermost voters’ minds. Eversman had watched the events on Wall Street unfolding with a mixture of fear and grim fascination. ‘It sure isn’t good, is it? I have a little investment and it has taken a beating he said. Eversman had good news for Obama. He plans to vote for him. ‘McCain is too much like Bush. He’s better than Bush, of course. But I want something different But it would be a mistake to think the Democrats have the support of Eversman – and millions of worried voters like him – sewn up. Eversman admitted that he could change his mind by November.

That they would beat people, shock them with electrical shock, stab them

They were secret, never declared. But the American top brass and the Iraqi leadership knew all about these prisons. The things that went on there: drilling, murder, torture. The ugliest sort of torture I’ve ever seen. According to one soldier with the 69th Armoured Regiment who was deployed Samarra 2005 but who doesn’t want to be identified: It was like the Nazis … like the Gestapo basically. They would essentially torture anybody that they had good reason to suspect, knew something, or was part of the insurgency … or supporting it, and people knew about that. The Guardian interviewed six torture victims as part of this investigation. One, a who says he was held for Martin St. Louis Jersey 20 days, said: There was no sleep. From the sunset, the torture would start on me and on the other prisoners. They wanted confessions. They’d say: ‘Confess to what have you done.’ When you say: ‘I have done nothing. Shall I confess about something I have not done?’, they said: ‘Yes, this is our way. The Americans told us to bring as detainees as possible order to keep them frightened.’ I did not confess about anything, although I was tortured and took off toenails. Smith, a 20-year-old medic who was based Samarra, remembers what low ranking US soldiers the canteen said. What was pretty widely known our battalion, definitely our platoon, was that they were pretty violent with their interrogations.

That they would beat people, shock them with Mats Zuccarello Jersey electrical shock, stab them, I ‘t know what… it sounds like pretty awful things. If you sent a there he was going to get tortured and perhaps raped or whatever, humiliated and brutalised by the special commandos order for them to get whatever information they wanted. He now lives Detroit and is a born-again Christian. He spoke to the Guardian because he said he now considered it his religious duty to speak out about what he saw. I ‘t think folks back home had any idea what American soldiers were involved over there, the torture and all kinds of stuff. Through Facebook, Twitter and social media the Guardian managed to make contact with three soldiers who confirmed they were handing over detainees to be tortured by the special commandos, but none except Smith were prepared to go on camera. If somebody gets arrested and we hand them over to MoI they’re going to get their balls hooked, electrocuted or they’re going to get beaten or raped up the ass with a coke bottle or something like that, one said. He left the army 2006. 28, he works with refugees from the Arab world Detroit teaching recent arrivals, including Iraqis, English. I suppose it is way of saying sorry, he said. When the Guardian BBC Arabic posed questions to Petraeus about torture and his relationship with Steele it received reply a statement from official close to the general saying, General Petraeus’s record, which includes instructions to his own soldiers … reflects his clear opposition to any form of torture. Colonel Steele was one of thousands of advisers to Iraqi units, working the area of the Iraqi police. There was no set frequency for Colonel Steele’s meetings with General Petraeus, although General Petraeus did him on a number of occasions during the establishment and initial deployments of the special police, which Colonel Steele played a significant role.

But Maass, then reporting for the New York Times, and who has interviewed both men, remembers the relationship differently: I talked to both of them about each other and it was very clear that they were very close to each other terms of their command relationship and also terms of their ideas and ideology of what needed to be done. Everybody knew that he was Petraeus’s. Even Steele defined himself as Petraeus’s. Maass and photographer Gilles Peress gained a unique audience with Steele at a library-turned-detention-centre Samarra. What I heard is prisoners screaming all night, Peress said. You know at which point you had a US captain telling his soldiers, ‘t, just ‘t come near this. Two men from Samarra who were imprisoned at the library spoke to the Guardian investigation team. We’d be tied to a spit or we’d be from the ceiling by our hands and our shoulders would be dislocated, one told us.

Is it not your own ring? Power and were murdered by Mahdists

Is it not your own ring? Power and were murdered by Mahdists, though it was ‘s head that was sent to Muhammad. There was no meeting at which Muhammad attempted to intimidate with lucky dips full of bits of dead people, though he did write him a series of polite letters asking him to leave the Sudan that further bloodshed might be avoided.

A reverent hush falls, and finally one hurls a single spear through his chest. This is heavily romanticised. The real came out shooting but ran out of ammunition on the staircase. The detailed account of one Mahdist suggests he was killed with a gunshot to the chest, not a spear, and that it was a mistake: the dim light, they mistook him for a Turk. Afterwards, his head is brought on a stick to Muhammad, who isn’t pleased at all. Take it away! he howls. For a chap with barrels of severed body parts his tent, this seems uncharacteristically squeamish – but, real life, Muhammad did specifically order that was not to be killed.

case you haven’t heard, Alex Ovechkin and Danny Woodhead Jersey tennis player Kirilenko announced their split Monday. Goodbye, incredibly athletic Russian power couple. An SI report said that the breakup occurred over Ovechkin’s Instagram photo with another girl, but according to Kirilenko, that’s false., can you comment on the story about the pictures with and on social networks, which are being so vigorously discussed the media? Kirilenko: Believe me, over the years I have seen so pictures of the company of young ladies, that I have gotten used to it. That is normal. We are public figures, and people often want to take pictures with us.

This is the first time I heard about this girl, and I made my decision to break up the engagement before these pictures appeared on the social networks. It is laughable to point to them as the main reason behind the breakup – after three years together couples do not break up over a couple of pictures. There are much more significant reasons. I will not go into any more details about them. But let’s just say it is not a secret for anybody that has certain habits and particulars of behavior that I did not consider worth tolerating anymore. That last sentence is a solid passive-aggressive burn. So, why did the two separate? Kirilenko wouldn’t elaborate beyond a lot of reasons.
