McDonald’s All-American Game 2017 podcast: Who to know and what to expect

Youth Chris Johnson Jersey
The 2017 McDonald’s All-American Game is here, and One Shining Podcast is back to break it down. I’m joining Scott Phillips of NBC Sports and Jonathan Tjarks of The Ringer to talk about the best high school prospects in this year’s class.

If Nick Foles really is just pulling the wool over our eyes by beating up bad secondaries … well, he picked the right division to call home. In truth, it’s looking more and more like his Week 7 debacle against Dallas was one of the NFL’s bizarre abberations, and that his poise and accuracy will continue to enable the kind of consistent offensive results that a scattershot Mike Vick could never guarantee. A post-bye week matchup with the 49ers will tell us more, but Foles has almost single-handedly restored the shine to Chip Kelly’s offense.

The return of tackles Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini didn’t prevent some hiccups in the ground game, but Marshawn Lynch still managed three trips to the end zone while Russell Wilson again made the most of limited pass attempts on the way to 230 yards and two TDs. As Percy Harvin continues to ramp up and the Legion of Boom continues to clamp down, the Seahawks will continue a nigh-unchallenged run to the NFC’s top overall seed.

Facing their toughest test of the season, Peyton Manning and the Broncos answered the challenge with a 10-point victory. The Seahawks may be able to capitalize on Manning’s deep ball deficiencies, but there’s not a lot of hope for everyone else when the league’s other elite pass defense still surrendered 8.1 yards per attempt. Denver will still have to do it again in Arrowhead to ensure themselves of a No. 1 seed, but right now it’s crystal clear that the road to the Lombardi Trophy runs through Denver.

Wade Phillips filled in as the interim head coach, but Kubiak will be back on the sidelines on Sunday.

A little a more than a week after suffering a mini-stroke during Houston’s Week 9 game, Gary Kubiak returned to work on Monday. Kubiak suffered a transient ischemic attack (TIA) while walking into the locker room at halftime. He was taken to the hospital where he remained overnight for testing.

Wade Phillips filled in as the interim head coach, but Kubiak will be back on the sidelines on Sunday. He’s easing back into his role and was scheduled to work a half day on Monday. Battle Red Blog said it will be good to have Kubiak back:

Regardless of how you feel about the ongoing horror that is the Texans’ 2017 campaign, it’ll be great to see Kubes back on the sidelines on Sunday. I have no doubt the crowd at Reliant Stadium will give him a warm welcome back.

There’s no possible explanation other than he was just Hot Dogging it out there the way he seems to Relish taking hits, but in reality hes just being a Weiner and the rest of the league has Ketched-up to his style of play, to be Frank. Not to bring up his hair again, but his hair makes it literally impossible to keep his helmet on. Everytime he ran into a sack that helmet would be flying over the field like Kyle Turleys ghost was out there. If your going to have your hairstyle tied up in braids maybe secure one of those suckers to your chinstrap like we learned in Boy Scouts. Be prepared- this is day 1 stuff here Robert.

Im pretty confidant when I say that Griffin doesnt want to be a football player, he just wants the money and lifestyle that goes along with it. And even though you’d think DC might be sick of Hope and Change, most of their residents are waking up “Hoping” for a “Change” at QB.

I’m calling this Washington team “Bone Thugs N RG3” now because after showing some life after the First of The Month, there now at a Crossroads. As our Founding Father Thomas Jefferson said, “Do, or do not. There Is No Try.” And hes 100% correct, there was no try last night in Griffins game, only his ‘do.

Alshon Jeffery chose Eagles because he sees Carson Wentz winning MVP

Alshon Jeffery teamed up with Torrey Smith during the first day of free agency to give the Eagles some talent at the receiver position.

His decision surprised some, especially after it was announced he turned down a multi-year deal with the Vikings in order to take a one-year deal with Philly. When asked why he wanted to play for the Eagles, Jeffery said it was the man under center.

Early in the third period, Polak boarded Columbus forward Oliver Bjorkstrand in the numbers. Bjorkstrand was clearly in a vulnerable position, and the hit had him down on the ice after Polak rocked him.

Polak was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct, ejecting him from the one-goal game with 19 minutes left. The penalty resulted in a strange seven-minute penalty kill for the Maple Leafs, which Toronto killed off.

Bjorkstrand did not return to the game and did not travel with the Blue Jackets to Washington for their game on Thursday.

The suspension is Polak鈥檚 first in his NHL career.
Elite Womens Mike Schmidt Jersey
All Romo has to do is be better than Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck and Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota in the regular season, and the Texans have done that anyway. They did that last year with quarterbacks who combined for 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

Romo could thrive with O’Brien, too. Ryan Fitzpatrick posted 17 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 2014, and Hoyer had 19 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2015. O’Brien has posted three straight 9-7 seasons while starting eight different quarterbacks in that stretch. He deserves something more, and Romo provides that.

it is unclear whether they trust in Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher as their bookend tackles

Tatum is really good. I watched a lot of his work in the ACC tournament and came away impressed. He is not a great long-range shooter by any means, but he is got nice footwork and he can score in isolation. He just looks like an NBA player and the upside, as they say, is strong. Tatum is almost a year younger than Josh Jackson. That matters when we are talking about draft babies.

Jackson is the other guy who is almost certain to crack the top five. He is a live wire on the court, but he can really pass and he plays so hard. You like what you’ve seen from him?

Jarome Iginla Authentic Jersey He is an exciting player on the court, for sure. I especially enjoy his playmaking ability.

His off-the-court issues of late really can’t be ignored, though. He admitted to kicking the car of his teammate is ex and is alleged to have hit it repeatedly in an apparent attempt to intimidate her after a public fight between her and Jackson is teammate. Teams are rightfully sensitive to off-the-court issues and so Jackson is spectacular on-court potential cannot and should not be seen in a vacuum. (Kansas in general is basically impossible for me to watch — there is too much unspoken context and all of the credit for overcoming distractions makes me ill.)
Dwayne Gratz Womens Jersey
After adding two receivers in free agency, the Eagles now assuredly won’t draft a receiver in round one. Cornerback remains their biggest need and they’ll have plenty of options. Humphrey is a top-three cornerback in this class.

The Bengals lost their two best offensive linemen, and it is unclear whether they trust in Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher as their bookend tackles. Robinson could play guard to start before replacing one of the two in 2018.

The Wolverines didn’t waste it, and Beilein avoided NCAA tournament pain for a third time against his Hall of Fame counterpart

The most workable solution here would be to slot this game and the other later game, South Carolina-Duke, which starts at 8:40 in Greenville, S.C., in the relatively vacant afternoon window. There were only two games before 5:15 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. The NCAA and its TV partners could have chosen to start the Sacramento game around 4 p.m. ET to account for the time difference and the South Carolina-Duke game even earlier than that so the late endings created here for East Coast teams become a little less of an issue.

Instead, the games will likely remain spread out. It’s good for us to be able to binge basketball from noon to midnight, but it’s not good for the players who have other responsibilities to worry about.

Michigan built itself a nice lead, but that evaporated by halftime, because Louisville’s Luke Hancock went on a 14-point spurt right before the break. The second half went poorly. Pitino’s team won, setting this game up as a revenge shot for Michigan.

The Wolverines didn’t waste it, and Beilein avoided NCAA tournament pain for a third time against his Hall of Fame counterpart. (Pitino’s Louisville had also beaten Beilein’s WVU in a Big East tournament two-overtime game in 2007, for whatever it’s worth.)

“I’ve been asked if playing football caused this,” Clark wrote. “I don’t know for sure. But I certainly suspect it did. And I encourage the NFLPA and the NFL to continue working together in their efforts to make the game of football safer, especially as it relates to head trauma.”

Several of Clark’s former 49ers colleagues and teammates issued statements to express their sadness at Clark’s diagnosis.

“Dwight has been an integral part of my family’s life for decades,” DeBartolo Jr. said in a statement released to the San Jose Mercury News. “We are absolutely devastated. We vow to do everything in our power to support Dwight and Kelly and help them fight this terrible disease.”

This Arkansas guard named after Dusty Baker is a really neat March Madness story

Arkansas shooting guard Dusty Hannahs doesn¡¯t have a name that stops you in your tracks, until you find out he¡¯s named after Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker. It¡¯s one of the more curious March Madness factoids, and has a fascinating story behind it.

Dusty¡¯s father, Gerry Hannahs spent four years in the majors as a pitcher for the Montreal Expos and Los Angeles Dodgers. He first met Baker in a club following a game during his rookie season in Montreal. Hannahs pitched against Baker earlier in the day, and when Baker saw his opponent later that night he approached him. The Dodgers¡¯ star congratulated Hannahs for a good game and complimented his pitching.

Michigan, of course, has had a wild, up-and-down last 10 or so days, with a plane incident before leaving for the Big Ten tournament in Washington, DC, then winning that tournament outright. The Wolverines then played Oklahoma State in a thriller and won, which advanced them into the second round against Louisville. Sunday¡¯s game will be a repeat matchup of the 2013 national title game.

Authentic Mens Mackensie Alexander Jersey As it happens, Pitino has a point here. The Wolverines own a 48 percent field goal average on the year, good for 19th in the country. They rank somewhat lower than that in three-point shooting at 38 percent, good for No. 48. They also shoot well from the free throw line, hitting 77.5 percent of their attempts, which ranks 12th in the nation.
Authentic Mens Mithch Moreland Jersey
How do those lines stack up against the current No. 1 team in the Western Conference? Golden State is hitting 49 percent of its field goals currently, and 38 percent from out in the county. They¡¯re also making 78.7 percent of their free throw attempts. Those numbers rank first, third, and 10th in the NBA right now.

But maybe there¡¯s more to this comparison. Perhaps Pitino thinks Louisville is actually playing the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. Those color schemes, after all …

If you collected Donruss baseball cards, you might be pronouncing your childhood wrong

I’ve always wanted to be at the center of a gif/jiff debate. So meaningless. So fun. And it fills me with a sense of superiority to be right about something when so many others are wrong.

I am pleased to inform you that baseball nerds can have one of these debates of their very own. We can own this one. And there’s a chance that you’re so very wrong, too.

This one came up when I was talking with other baseball nerds about baseball players.

Yeah, he was a Rated Rookie on his Donruss card.

It’s Donruss according to some folks. The wrong folks. Their whole childhood has been a lie. Because here in the real America, where pop is for Maroon 5 and the soda is delicious, it’s pronounced Donruss.

Last year, the Jaguars were lauded for their free agent moves. Unfortunately, a roster loaded with talent wasn’t enough to overcome Gus Bradley’s coaching. The Giants, on the other hand, spent a bundle in free agency to give their defense an injection of talent, and it worked like a charm.

All we’re saying here is not to let the excitement of being an armchair general manager cloud your grip on reality.

To further dampen your enthusiasm, we should make one important note about this list. Many of these names, especially the players near the top, will not actually make it to the open market. Good teams don’t make a habit of letting their best players slip away. Players will get the franchise tag or sign a new deal outright before the tampering window opens on March 7.

This is exactly what happened the week of Feb. 27. Teams started applying the tag, so names like Le’Veon Bell who made this look like a pretty sweet list are no longer available.
