    Correct call on Aaron Rodgers' return won't make Packers execs any less nervous

  • Night net null null Now that Aaron Rodgers is ready to return for the Packers’ stretch run in 2017, are we looking at shades of 2010 with a Rodgers-fueled playoff/Super Bowl run for Green Bay?Or will we see a Tony Romo-like recurring collarbone problem that could derail the future Hall of Famer's career? IYER: Rodgers returns to better offenseAs Packers coach Mike McCarthy said, Rodgers and Green Bay's doctors/training staff deserve credit for his aggressive rehab and quick return from a broken right collarbone sustained in Week 6. The speculation at the time was that Rodgers' season was over; it would take extensive rehab lasting through the entire season because it was the collarbone on his throwing side. Instead, the QB is back within the minimum eight weeks allowed after being placed on designated to return injured reserve. Also credit Rodgers' teammates, including backup Brett Hundley, for going 3-4 in his absence. If the Packers were not sitting at 7-6 and in the playoff hunt, general manager Ted Thompson and McCarthy likely would have sat Rodgers the rest of the way.In my GM days, I would not have risked our franchise quarterback coming off a significant injury in the last three weeks of a lost season regardless of how badly h[......]

    Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em Week 11

  • Night net null Having trouble with those Week 11 fantasy start 'em, sit 'em lineup calls? “The Decider” is back to give you his most logical recommendations of whom to play and whom not to play, as well as provide some Night net DFS advice.Week 11 marks the final time teams will be on bye, with the Panthers, Colts, 49ers and Jets all not in action. Given the limited fantasy options on those teams beyond Carolina, the good news is there’s still a strong pool of players available. WEEK 11 RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerFantasy Football Week 11 Start 'Em: QuarterbacksEvery-week starts Tom Brady, Patriots (at OAK), Drew Brees, Saints (vs. WAS), Carson Wentz, Eagles (at DAL), Russell Wilson, Seahawks (vs. ATL), Dak Prescott, Cowboys (vs. PHI)Strong startsAlex Smith, Chiefs (at NYG). The Giants got ripped by C.J. Beathard last week. Smith is a much better version of that mobile QB with scarier downfield threats New York can’t cover.Matt Ryan, Falcons (at SEA). It might feel like a trap, but Ryan has been more than competent of late and the Seahawks’ pass defense isn’t as scary without Richard Sherman.

    Broncos are hitting rock bottom under John Elway

  • Night net null null On Feb. 7, 2016, John Elway was on top of the football world. As Broncos executive vice president and general manager, he had just completed a sensational run of leading his organization to four straight division titles, two AFC crowns and a Super Bowl 50 victory over Carolina.Elway's stamp was all over those Denver teams, from the successful recruitment of Peyton Manning to the drafting of superstar defender Von Miller and bringing in the players and coaches needed to build a champion. Just two years later, though, it has all come tumbling down for Elway, who was spoiled by his early GM success. Today, the 3-7 Broncos are a mess, and Elway’s frustration became obvious when he called his team "a little soft."The Night net rollercoaster began to turn downhill for Elway when the 9-7 Broncos fell short of the playoffs last season. But this year, after six straight losses that include getting beat at home by the lowly Giants and Bengals, this proud franchise and its leader have hit rock bottom. WEEK 12 Night net PICKS:Against the spread | Straight upElway embarks upon a dangerous path when he lashes out at his team as he did with his comment. The reaction from several Broncos players was swift — and not warm and fuzzy[......]

    Night net scores: Week 14 results, highlights

  • Night net null Entering Week 14, seven teams had chances to clinch permanent spots in the 2017 Night net playoff picture. After the Falcons' win over the Saints on Thursday night, that number was down to five for Sunday and Monday games. The Rams could not clinch a postseason berth Sunday thanks to the Saints' loss, which also means New Orleans must wait at least one more week.Of those five teams, four had chances make the playoffs by winning their respective divisions. The Vikings (vs. Panthers), Eagles (vs. Rams), Steelers (vs. Ravens) and Patriots (Monday night vs. Dolphins) simply needed victories this week to win the NFC North, NFC East, AFC North and AFC East, respectively.

    End of James Harrison's career signals start of mending process for Harrison, fans, Steelers

  • Night net null null In the realm of terribly conceived endings to otherwise magical stories, the saga of James Harrison and the Pittsburgh Steelers once seemed as though it were headed for the godawful territory previously occupied by “Million Dollar Baby.”James and the Men of Steel didn’t turn out so badly, though. The “likely” AFC Championship game matchup between the Steelers and New England Patriots turned out to be otherwise, so the nightmare of seeing No. 92 in Patriots gear working feverishly to sack Ben Roethlisberger never materialized. To some degree, every Steelers fan h夜网论坛ad this concern following Harrison's release just before Christmas and subsequent signing with New England just after. The Steelers failed to hold up their end, though, and none of this ever materialized. MORE: The greatest players to don a Steeler uniformSo it’s best for everyone involved — Harrison, the organization, Steeler Nation — to forget any of it happened. The occasion of Harrison’s retirement Monday is an opportunity for everyone involved to reach the conclusion a married couple might when neither side really wants to acknowledge fault but the issue at stake is of no great consequence.Someone needs to say: “Want to be friends?”It probably won’t be[......]

    Ravens' draft picks: Projecting 2018 first-rounder, late-round sleepers

  • Night net null It's almost too perfect that the Ravens have the 16th overall pick in the 2018 Night net Draft. A team that has meddled in mediocrity since it hoisted the Lombardi trophy in 2013, the Ravens are more than just a few key pieces away from reaching those heights again.Joe Flacco is not getting any younger, and the team can’t continue to rely on aging receivers like Michael Crabtree. Plus, the Ravens could always use a youthful boost to their defense.

    Night net free agency: Keenum to Broncos, other moves making draft more interesting

  • Night net null The 2017 Night net Draft was memorable because of the surprise moves made in the first round.All that wheeling and dealing may be considered tame based upon how this year’s selection process is shaping up. The latest development to increase the intrigue occurred early Tuesday morning when ESPN reported Denver will sign Minnesota quarterback Case Keenum when the free-agent signing period begins Wednesday.Night net FREE AGENCY:Rumors, reported deals, live updates The devil will be in the details on this contract. If it's a multiyear deal with a one-year escape clause for the Broncos, a la what happened between the Bears and Mike Glennon in 2017, Denver remains strongly in play to use the No. 5 overall pick on a quarterback. That's what the Bears did when they traded up to snare Mitchell Trubisky in last year’s draft even after signing Glennon to a three-year, $45 million contract.If not, the Keenum acquisition likely reflects two things:— The Broncos weren't enamored enough with this year’s quarterbacks class to take the plunge. That is especially telling since Denver’s coaching staff received hands-on work with two of the top prospects, Wyoming’s Josh Allen and Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, in late January at the Reese’s Senior Bowl.— Denver could drop out of the top 10 entirely if Buffalo comes-a-calling.Lost a[......]

    Night net free agency: Giants primed for worthy splurge on Andrew Norwell

  • Night net null null The Giants' big changes for 2018 are just beginning. New general manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur have a big personnel overhaul ahead of them.Most of that work will come in the draft, where the team has five picks, including No. 2 overall. Before then, the Giants can make use of their limited salary-cap space (almost $24 million, per OverTheCap.com). Gettleman's GM history with the Panthers suggests he has a knack for maximizing his budget with older, cheaper veterans. More bang for the buck is a necessity, as the team has needs across the offense and is adjusting to a new base 3-4 hybrid defense under coordinator James Bettcher.Night net FREE AGENCY:Top 25 free agents; best by position There is room, however, for one big spend that will set the tone for the team's offseason — getting back to the brand of football that has led to the Giants' highest level of recent success.Offensive lineGettleman can't be happy with the "Hog Molly" situation on this front in New York. The line is coming off a weak season overall, and guard Justin Pugh, center Weston Richburg and tackle D.J. Fluker are all unrestricted free agents. Related News[......]
