So if somebody else takes over at Green Bay, then it’s either a big name or somebody Rodgers essentially hand-picks.

That would put intense pressure on both, but it’s not more than what McCarthy faces heading into 2018.

Ditto for Thompson. Have the Packers made enough improvements? Sporting News offered five suggestions in the aftermath of last year’s loss to the Falcons, and the only significant change came in the running game. Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones give the Packers a youthful 1-2 punch for the future, but that’s about it. The Martellus Bennett signing was a disaster. The pass defense is the same-old mess.

He’s just a fun-loving guy. He doesn’t take himself too seriously, doesn’t take life too seriously, Steve Jordan said. But this game of football, particularly now, he’s definitely taking that serious. And he’s really focused, and I like that.

The younger Jordan considers the Phoenix area his home, as he says, because that’s where he had his first kiss and learned how to drive. He doesn’t get all that nostalgic about returning to Minneapolis.

Even though a single player rarely has significant impact to the success of NFL team over the long-term, this season we have seen that injuries or suspensions to players such as Aaron Rodgers and Ezekiel Elliott have derailed strong teams. Wentz has became a star with his play this season, and replacing him won’t be easy for Foles. The next three weeks will have a major impact on how the Eagles fare in the postseason.

Each week, AccuScore will update its 2017 NFL postseason forecast by simulating the remainder of the NFL season 10,000 times to predict win totals, division winners and probabilities of reaching the playoffs on the road to Super Bowl 52. Below are the probabilities and Vegas odds of making the NFL playoffs and how they have changed.

This was Curry’s sixth game-winning shot (five seconds or less) of Wholesale NFL Jerseys Nike his career, and three of those six have come against Dallas. As a Cheap Basketball Jerseys Dallasite, I can’t tell you why Curry would hate this fairly lovely city. But he obviously must. (You can see the other two shots here.)

There were plenty of issues on that side of the ball.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension obviously hurt. Wide receiver Dez Bryant dropped some passes he’d normally catch.

Quarterback Dak Prescott, coming off a great rookie season, seems to have regressed. Prescott, who was only intercepted four times in 2016, has 13 so far in 2017. Nine of those have come in the past seven games when the Cowboys have really struggled.

When we can, we will improve personnel-wise. The draft lets you have a good spot to do that, Jones said, via SportsDay. You can do some things with your budget or you can do things with the financial aspect of it, reallocate some dollars. This is going to give us a good chance to do that this year.

Bryant has constantly been calling for the ball this season and yet he has caught just 66 passes for 814 yards and six touchdowns. Those are career-lows for seasons in which he has played at least 15 games.

Ezekiel Elliott couldn’t solve Dallas’ offensive issues after returning from a suspension Sunday. The Cowboys need a healthy Bryant and re-focused offense to return to prominence next season.

Dez Bryant said he has not been healthy the past two months, saying he has been dealing with and playing through tendinitis. He has not been listed on the injury report and not missed practice. He said he has tried to be a warrior.

It’s tough to describe right now, Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said of the loss. It’s a hell of a college football game. You know, an epic Rose Bowl game.

The Bulldogs will play Alabama on Jan. 8 fin an all-Southeastern Conference national championship game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, about 70 miles from their campus. After Georgia made its first trip to the Rose Bowl since 1943 a heart-stopping success, the Bulldogs will play for their first national title since 1980.

Facing the Spurs is tough enough, no matter the circumstances.

Now imagine that it’s your third game in four days and your fifth game in eight days. Imagine that it’s the second of a back-to-back set and that after hosting the Grizzlies you’ll fly east from Denver for San Antonio — losing an hour in the process — to face the Spurs less than 24 hours later. Now imagine that the Spurs will enter this game with a one-day rest advantage. Imagine all that, and it’s not hard to understand why the Nuggets might well be barbecued in this matchup.

So far, the Lakers have been committed to Walton as their coach and have not shown any signs of turning away from him anytime soon. While Ball’s criticisms may be valid in some places, organizations don’t fire coaches because a player’s father complains.

Walton will be just fine. Magic Johnson is on his side — that’s all that really matters. Has he been perfect? Of course not. But he’s still learning, too. He’ll figure it out eventually, but it’s way too early to cut him loose.

Touchdown, Steelers . Ben Roethlisberger leads Pittsburgh on an eight-play, 69-yard drive that ends with an 18-yard touchdown pass to Eli Rogers. Roethlisberger completed four pass of 10 yards or more on the drive. New England and Pittsburgh are now tied 7-7.

Between Gasol, Conley, Parsons, Wright, Green, and McLemore, you have invested nearly $93.7 million in just this season alone. These are your six highest paid players, and only two of them have played more than 600 minutes. Compare that to Tyreke Evans, Dillon Brooks, and James Ennis III’s combined roughly $7.3 million, all of who have played well over 800 minutes (and in the case of Brooks and Evans well over 1,000) and you see the problem. Those who were supposed to be the best and most consistent players for Memphis, for one reason or another, have not been. Their failures, and all the explanations behind them, have created an imperfect storm of irreparable harm to a roster that needed everything to go right to compete.

But the opposite has happened. It has all gone to hell. Now the Grizzlies and their fans must deal with the realities that this presents.

Boston is 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS over its last three games in New Nike NFL Jerseys a stretch that includes an impressive 99-98 win over the Houston Rockets as 2-point underdogs last Cheap MLB Jerseys Thursday. The Celtics are 10-10 SU and 10-9-1 ATS in their last 20 regular-season meetings with the Celtics.

Ben Roethlisberger holds no grudges toward James Harrison, but not all Pittsburgh players feel the same.

While speaking to reporters Wednesday, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey slammed the veteran linebacker for signing with the Patriots following his release.

If there was any doubt Curry wasn’t his old self, a play late in the second quarter reminded fans of just how special he is. Curry passed the ball to Zaza Pachulia along the baseline and then ran behind the big man. Pachulia, without looking back, bounced the ball between his legs to Curry, and with the flick of his wrist, the sharpshooter quickly got the shot off and drained a corner 3-pointer. Many of the fans in attendance at Oracle Arena jumped out of their seats.

That was the zest the Warriors’ offense had been missing for most of December. After the first two quarters, Curry recorded 21 points on 7-of-9 shooting from the field and 5-of-7 from downtown in 14 minutes.

Currently, the Baltimore Ravens and the Tennessee Titans are going to the playoffs as a AFC wild card teams. The Ravens have 80% probability to keep that position, as they host Cincinnati and a win will ensure a postseason berth. For Tennessee, their postseason probability has dropped with their three consecutive losses and is now down to 52%. They still control their own destiny because the home win over the Jacksonville Jaguars is enough for a postseason berth in Tennessee.

Bourque had cups of coffee with the Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins — 51 total games, during which he had two goals and six assists. He saw some time in the KHL and the Swiss league. When he plays his first game for Team USA in Pyeongchang, he’ll have played more Olympic games than Stanley Cup playoff games during his 13-year hockey career.

So you have the talented kid who can’t match the accomplishments of his father; you have a journeyman who couldn’t break through and stay in the big leagues (and because of that, ironically, he’s eligible to play in the Olympics); and you also have a pro player who is trying to become more than a punchline for a on waivers … again joke.

You have the kind of backstory that melts away the minute Chris Bourque scores a game-winning goal in a medal-round game for the United States — quite the Hollywood ending.
