#1 d catch on Seattles opening series of the second half, positioning S von hfy962464 24.07.2018 05:11

CLEVELAND -- Another qualified coaching candidate has eluded the Browns. Larry Nance Jr. Jersey . Ken Whisenhunts decision to accept Tennessees opening leaves Cleveland as one of just three NFL franchises still searching for a head coach. Whisenhunt, who guided Arizona to a Super Bowl, came close to being hired by the Browns last year and interviewed with the team on Saturday. San Diegos loss on Sunday in the AFC playoffs freed up teams to make offers to Whisenhunt and he chose the Titans after it appeared he was headed to Detroit. Its not known if the Browns tried to outbid the Titans for the well-regarded 51-year-old. With Whisenhunt no longer in the mix, the Browns moved into the third week of their quest to replace Rob Chudzinski without any clear front-runner, but with a new former NFL head coach on their list. The team has interviewed at least five known candidates and the Browns reportedly met Monday with former Titans coach Mike Munchak, also in consideration with the Lions. The 53-year-old Munchak, a Hall of Fame lineman, went 22-26 in three seasons with the Titans, who fired him on Jan. 4, ending his 30-plus-years association with the franchise. Clevelands degree of interest in Munchak isnt known since the team is not commenting on any interviews and Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner have maintained a low profile since dumping Chudzinski after one season. And while there may not be a current favourite to take over as Clevelands seventh full-time coach since 1999, there are signs that Denver offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase could be the Browns top choice. The 35-year-old Gase was the first candidate contacted by the Browns, but he informed them -- along with the Minnesota Vikings -- that he wanted to wait until after the playoffs to be considered. "I told both teams that were interested in me that I appreciated it and I was going to wait until after our season had concluded," Gase said on Jan. 3. "They were great about it. They said they appreciated me being up front and honest about it, and I thought that was the best decision for what we are trying to accomplish with our team." Its not known if Gase has agreed to an interview with either team. NFL rules prohibit teams from offering jobs to assistant coaches who are still in the playoffs. Gases decision to delay any interviews raised some flags about whether hes actually ready to be a head coach. But as long as hes paired with quarterback Peyton Manning, Gases profile will continue to grow and hell undoubtedly be coveted if he waits another year. Following Denvers win on Sunday over San Diego, Manning praised Gase during his postgame news conference for his play calling in helping the Broncos advance to Sundays AFC Championship against New England. In his first season as Denvers offensive co-ordinator, the Broncos scored an NFL record 606 points and led the league with 457.3 yards per game and 340.3 yards passing. His resume is impressive, but even if the Browns meet with Gase, its not a given he will be hired. Hes never been a head coach, and Haslam and Banner said they were determined to find a "strong winner who knows how to win football games" as they began looking for their second coach in just over a year. If the Browns chose to wait on Gase, they run the risk of the coaching talent pool drying up and being in a desperate situation should he turn them down. Cleveland has waited until after the Super Bowl before. Following the 2004 season, the Browns hired Romeo Crennel in the hours after the Super Bowl. The Browns are already losing a public relations war as the search has dragged on. After New England offensive co-ordinator Josh McDaniels withdrew his name from consideration for Clevelands opening last week, it heightened the perception that Cleveland is not an attractive job. It hasnt helped that some national reports have described the Browns situation as "toxic" and "radioactive." Haslam and Banner have also interviewed Seattle defensive co-ordinator Dan Quinn, Arizona defensive co-ordinator Todd Bowles and Green Bay quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo. Jeff Green Cavaliers Jersey . Hamels threw seven sharp innings to earn his 100th career victory, Domonic Brown had a career-best five RBIs and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Cincinnati Reds 12-1 on Saturday night to end a four-game losing streak. Jeff Green Jersey . The Red Sox maintained a share of the AL wild-card lead Tuesday night, using four home runs to beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-7 and set up a dramatic conclusion to the regular season. The skidding Red Sox were 6-19 this month before rebounding to edge the last-place Orioles. http://www.authenticcavaliersauthority.com/jose-calderon-cavaliers-jersey-c-27/ .C. -- Duke sophomore Rodney Hood is entering the NBA draft.Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - After Tom Brady added to an already illustrious legacy, Malcolm Butler established his by leaving the Seattle Seahawks, well, deflated. Bradys 3-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman put the New England Patriots ahead with 2:02 remaining, while Butlers goal-line interception with 20 seconds left preserved a 28-24 victory over the Seahawks in a Super Bowl XLIX that every bit lived up to its advance billing. Making a record sixth Super Bowl start for a quarterback, Brady threw two of his four touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to bring the Patriots back from a 24-14 deficit against the leagues most feared defense. New Englands own stop unit then came up with a game-saving play to sew up the AFC champions first NFL title in a decade. The Patriots had twice came up short, including a painstaking 17-14 defeat to the New York Giants on this same University of Phoenix field seven years ago, since besting the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX to conclude the 2004 season. For a moment, another heartbreaking setback appeared on the horizon. The defending world champion Seahawks moved down to the opposing 5-yard line in the final seconds on Jermaine Kearses miraculous 33-yard catch, which conjured up memories of the Giants David Tyrees unforgettable grab that helped send New England to defeat in Super Bowl XLII. Marshawn Lynch was stopped just short of the goal line on the ensuing play, but the Seahawks didnt give the ball to their All-Pro back on the next snap. Instead, Russell Wilson attempted a slant intended for Ricardo Lockette that Butler -- an undrafted rookie from Division II West Alabama -- jumped and hauled in to give Brady his fourth Super Bowl triumph, tying Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw for the most by a quarterback in league history. Brady also claimed his third career Super Bowl MVP, a feat previously accomplished only by Montana, after shaking off a pair of costly interceptions to complete a Super Bowl-record 37 passes for 328 yards on 50 attempts. Pats head coach Bill Belichick, who spent most of the two weeks leading up to the title game fielding questions about his teams use of under-inflated footballs in its rout of Indianapolis in the AFC Championship, reached a milestone as well by tying Pittsburgh Steelers legend Chuck Noll with his fourth Lombardi Trophy. Seattle, bidding to become the first repeat champion since the Patriots won back-to-back Super Bowls in 2003 and 2004, held New England to just 32 total yards during a dominant third quarter in which they put up 10 unanswered points to break a 14-14 tie at the half. Brady found his stride again in the final frame, however, directing a 9-play, 68-yard drive that was extended by two crucial 21-yard third-down connections with Edelman, who burned the Seahawks heralded secondary for 109 yards on nine catches on the night. The last of those completions put the ball on the Seattle 4-yard line and set up Bradys on-point bullet to Danny Amendola that cut the lead to 24-21 with 7:55 to play. After New Englands defense forced a quick three-and-out on the subsequent possession, Brady flawlessly led his team back down the field. The savvy veteran went 8-for-8 on the 10-play, 64-yard series, highlighted by hookups with Rob Gronkowski that went for 20 and 13 yards to send his team back in scoring range. A 7-yard pass to Brandon LaFell shortly afterward created a 1st-and-goal, and Edelman shook off press coverage from Tharold Simon to cradle in Bradys back- shoulder throw to send New England in front just before the two-minute warning. Simon was in the game as an injury replacement for nickelback Jeremy Lane, who picked off Brady at the goal line late in the first quarter to thwart the games first scoring chance but hurt his left wrist on the turnover. The Seahawks, coming off an unbeliveable comeback to down Green Bay in the NFC Championship, showed their mettle once more, though. Wilson hit Lynch out of the backfiield for a 31-yard gain and Kearse later came down with a deep ball deflected by Butler that first landed in the receivers lap before he snatched it out of the air with his back on the ground. Tristan Thompson Jersey. Wilson tested Butler on his next pass as well, but the backup corner got position on Lockette and snared the ball prior to dropping to the ground at the 2-yard line. The Seahawks had been 18-0 over the last three seasons when holding a lead of 10 or more points in the fourth quarter. Lanes pick kept a defensively dominated first quarter scoreless, though there was plenty of scoring from both sides during a wild second. Brady bounced back on New Englands next drive, hitting on 5-of-7 throws that included a a 3rd-and-9 connection with Edelman for 23 yards that brought New England to the Seattle 12. He later finished the nine-play, 65-yard sequence with an 11-yard dart to LaFell to give the Patriots the upper hand just over five minutes into the second quarter. Seattle. meanwhile, had mustered a mere 22 yards and one first down over its first three drives before its offense finally got into gear, with seldom-used wideout Chris Matthews leading the charge. Matthews didnt record a single reception while spending the majority of the regular season on the practice squad, but began a four-catch, 109-yard outburst with a leaping grab of Wilsons deep strike. Two plays after the 44- yard gain, Lynch fought his way across the goal line on a shotgun keeper to knot the score at 7-7 with 2:16 left in the half. Brady brought New England right back in scoring range, however, with three completions that included Shane Vereens 16-yard reception to the Seahawks 27 inside the final minute. He later delivered a pinpoint pass to Gronkowski, engaged in single coverage with linebacker K.J. Wright, that resulted in a 22- yard touchdown just 31 seconds prior to the intermission. Long runs by Robert Turbin and Wilson put the Seahawks immediately into New England territory on the ensuing possession, though, and Seattle called timeout with six seconds left following Lockettes 23-yard catch coupled with a face-mask penalty on the Pats. Head coach Pete Carroll opted to take one shot at the end zone, and the move paid off when Matthews won a jump ball in the end zone as Wilson quickly ripped off a well-placed throw. Matthews came down with a 44-yard catch on Seattles opening series of the second half, positioning Steven Hauschka for a go-ahead 27-yard field goal, and Bobby Wagner intercepted Bradys down-the-middle pass for Gronkowski to put the Seahawks at midfield with a chance to move further in front. That they did, with Wilson finishing a short 6-play jaunt by finding a wide- open Doug Baldwin from three yards out to extend the lead to 24-14 with under five minutes to go in the third quarter. Wilson, the first quarterback in league history to start two Super Bowls in his first three seasons, ended with 247 yards and two touchdowns on 12-of-21 passing. Lynch accounted for 102 of the Seahawks 162 rushing yards on a 24- carry effort.
