Sunday’s early game will pit two teams that haven’t been to the postseason in years. The Bills are making their first postseason appearance since 1999, while the Jaguars haven’t been to the playoffs since 2007. Meanwhile, the final game of the weekend will feature bitter divisional rivals, the Panthers and Saints, that have had plenty of postseason experience in recent seasons.
The honeymoon period is running full-tilt into the phase where the coach and players tuning each other out becomes an issue. Ten years is a long time — in Baltimore, it’s a year longer than Brian Billick lasted, and Harbaugh’s predecessor won a Super Bowl, as well. Only five coaches have longer tenure than Harbaugh (ironically, two are in his division, Mike Tomlin and Marvin Lewis).
Green Bay, which ranked 22nd in total defense and 26th in points allowed this season, fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers on Monday and is expected to make more changes to the defensive coaching staff. While team president and CEO Mark Murphy announced current Packers general manager Ted Thompson is assuming a role as a senior advisor to football operations, he clarified the franchise isn’t looking for a new head coach.
“Mike is our man; he is our coach,” Murphy said. “We have obviously, kind of like Ted, the two of them together have had a great run. We have all the confidence in the world in Mike, we’re going to have great success moving forward. So yeah he will be our coach.”
McCarthy, 54, holds a regular-season record of 121-70-1 through 12 seasons in Green Bay. His tenure includes a 10-8 record in the postseason and a Super Bowl XLV win against the Steelers.
I like to check them over the course of the to if they reflect what I’m seeing or challenge it.He was hurting the most.But the Flames must climb past six clubs with 16 remaining to qualify for the playoffs.With time, he’ll become more decisive off the dribble and learn when to change pace.
Jeff Fisher and the Rams traveled across the country nearly 3 , but they could not escape controversy.
we can’t pick every game, all year.D Victor Hedman was a big reason, shadowing Kane, limiting his time and space.Aybar has been hitting .174 with a .207 OBP and .205 slugging percentage with the Braves this year , so we can’t rule out that this involved some sort of chicken sacrifice ritual and was a rally chicken attempt, a la League.Probably one of the most important things that I say to a player this process at the end of the day is that I appreciate your trust us as people, and your loyalty to the program.
