    There was a moment, during Mike Macdonald’s interview for the Ravens defensive coordinator job, when the student became the teacher. It was that moment which convinced John Harbaugh he had found the next leader of his defense. He’d watched, firsthand, Macdonald’s apprenticeship as a coach, and now, the former Ravens intern was telling him how a defense could thrive. “I was able to see his thought process, in terms of the way he built a defense on his own,” Harbaugh recalled Wednesday at Macdonald’s introductory news conference. “He took the defense and structured it and was able to teach me that, relay that to me, show me how he did it, how he solved the problems that the college game presented and that the pro game presents. … In the end, that was what did it for me.” Macdonald is technically the first outsider Harbaugh has hired as defensive coordinator, but he “grew up as a coach” in the Ravens organization before taking a year away to work for Harbaugh’s brother, Jim, at Michigan. Now, he’ll replace...
    The Chicago Bears announced they have hired Ryan Poles, the Kansas City Chiefs executive director of player personnel, as their new general manager. Poles was at Halas Hall for his second interview Tuesday, and by noon NFL Network and ESPN first reported the Bears were finalizing a contract with the man who will replace Ryan Pace. Poles, 36, has been with the Chiefs for 13 years, working his way up from player personnel assistant to college scouting administrator and coordinator, director of college scouting, assistant director of player personnel and executive director of player personnel this season. He was part of the Chiefs team that won Super Bowl LIV in the 2019 season. The Bears were connected with at least 15 GM candidates and had reported interviewing 13 of them through Monday. Poles first interviewed with the Bears on Friday. It was clear by Monday night how deep the Bears’ interest was when a video of Chairman George McCaskey apparently picking up Poles at O’Hare International Airport surfaced on social media. Poles becomes the seventh general...
    Shortly after Ravens defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale learned that starting cornerback Marlon Humphrey was out for the season with a torn pectoral muscle, he should have huddled with all his linebackers and linemen who make up his front seven. And then he should have delivered a great speech, one filled with more reality than fiery rhetoric. In short, Martindale should have said: “If we want to get where we want to be, then the guys in this room have to carry us. From here on out, we have to ball out.” That’s pretty much the story of the season at this point. The Ravens aren’t at a breaking point after Humphrey’s injury, but they are close. Quarterback Lamar Jackson is having a brain freeze because he can’t figure out blitzes or pressure packages. His receivers seem to be irritated with Jackson’s tunnel vision to tight end Mark Andrews, and the offensive line struggles in pass protection. Humphrey’s injury only made things worse because the team was already without starting running backs J.K. Dobbins (knee)...
    Michigan State is giving Mel Tucker a 10-year, $95 million contract, making an aggressive move to keep a football coach who potentially could have left for LSU or the NFL. “I am honored to be a part of the Spartan process today and for years to come,” Tucker wrote Wednesday in a post on Twitter. The 12th-ranked Spartans (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten) close the regular season against Penn State (7-4, 4-4) on Saturday at home. The contract establishes Tucker as one of the riches coaches in college football. Only Alabama’s Nick Saban, one of his mentors, who makes $9.75 million per year, is paid more on an annual basis, according to the USA Today coaches salaries database. Tucker’s 10-year deal puts him in select company with two coaches with the same term: Clemson’s Dabo Swinney and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher. Swinney’s contract is worth $92 million and Fisher’s will pay him more than $9 million per year starting in 2022. Tucker’s deal that expires Jan. 15, 2032, will have a $5.9 million base salary, $3.2 million in supplemental compensation for...
    YOU could imagine the moans from armchair critics around the country — an onslaught from the keyboard warriors. Five at the back and TWO holding midfielders, against Albania! 4England midfielder Jordan Henderson scored in the 5-0 win against Albania at WembleyCredit: Reuters 4Henderson has scored just two goals for the Three Lions since making his international debut in 2010Credit: Getty Typical Gareth Southgate. Boring. Defensive. Even cowardly. And Jordan Henderson, rather than Jude Bellingham. Jordan Henderson. Come on, what are we scared of? What are you scared of, Gareth? Nothing, actually. Absolutely nothing… Last month, facing Hungary, Southgate cast off his natural instincts and played to the gallery. One holder, four attacking midfielders. And England stank the place out.

    Getty Kyle Lowry, Miami Heat It was certainly a quote that caught attention around the NBA. After the Miami Heat picked apart the Mavericks on Tuesday night with a 125-110 road win, the fifth straight for the retooled roster, Mavericks coach Jason Kidd had unabashed praise for the Heat. “The Heat are, I would consider them the best team in the league right now,” Kidd said. “They’re men and they know how to play.” Play Mavs' Jason Kidd on Miami Heat: 'I would consider them the best team in the league right now'Mavs' Jason Kidd on Miami Heat: 'I would consider them the best team in the league right now' The Heat defeated Dallas 125-110 on Tuesday night. #JASONKIDD #HEAT #HEATNATION For more sports content, go to goforitradio.com2021-11-03T03:30:45Z And while the offense has been impressive, with a rating of 114.3 points per 100 possessions, according to NBA.com/Stats, second in the league, it has been the defense that has anchored this team so far.

    Getty Aaron Donald tussles down Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks during the Los Angeles Rams' NFC Wildcard playoff win in January 2021. Donald is helping spearhead a top five defensive line unit for 2021 according to Pro Football Focus. On one side of the line of scrimmage, the Los Angeles Rams have the eighth best offensive line unit for the upcoming 2021 season according to Pro Football Focus. So what about the other trench representatives at the “Rams House?” Turns out PFF, the analytics site that’s been in existence since 2007, is high on the Rams’ defensive line. To the point they’ve climbed four spots from a season ago. The June 7 PFF article highlighting the league’s best defensive lines placed the Rams at No. 4 overall, a jump from last year’s No. 8 ranking. The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to be labeled the league’s best DL group by PFF. The Washington Football Team and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished ahead of the Rams at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, in the defensive line rankings. Any fan...
    The Dallas Cowboys are looking to get back to the top of the NFC East, and in order to do so, they need Trevon Diggs to step up in 2021. During the 2020 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys selected Alabama cornerback Trevon Diggs with the No. 51 overall pick in the second round. After a career with the Crimson Tide that saw him earn All-SEC honors, as well as win a national title, Diggs was one of the premier cornerbacks coming out that year. The brother of Buffalo Bills star Stefon Diggs, Trevon was seen as a can’t-miss talent coming out of Alabama and put together a solid rookie campaign. Outside of him breaking his foot and missing time, Diggs started 11 of his 12 games, nabbed three interceptions, and had an impressive 14 passes defended. While that was a good rookie season, Diggs will need to step up even more if the Cowboys want to win their first NFC East title since 2018.Cowboys need a big second season from Diggs Just as they did with Diggs in 2020, the...
    Getty Images T.J. Watt, outside linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. In a not entirely unexpected development, Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt lost out on winning the prestigious AP Defensive Player of the Year award, which went to Aaron Donald of the Los Angeles Rams. It’s the third time Donald has won the award, which he also captured in both 2017 and 2018. Donald’s victory was somewhat predictable, at least if you consider a recent anonymous poll of 32 NFL executives, more than half of whom said they liked Donald, with 12 voting for Watt and three preferring Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard. It’s also worth noting that Donald won the Pro Football Writers of America Defensive Player of the Year for 2020, though the winner of the PFWA DPOY award doesn’t always predict the winner of the AP honor. T.J. Watt’s Promotional Wingmen Gave It Their Best ShotIt’s safe to say, though, that T.J. Watt’s brother J.J.—not to mention Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin—did all they could do to draw attention to Watt’s case by serving...

    After being in a team with immense experience and then moving to a team with hardly any won’t be an easy transition for Rajon Rondo. He recently signed a 2-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks for $15 million. After being in the NBA for 15 years, this is going to be the first time he is the oldest player on the roster. Naturally, being the veteran, he will be the guiding force for the others on the team, especially Trae Young. When he was with the Los Angeles Lakers, Rondo played a vital role in their success. If it weren’t for his playoff Rondo alter ego, they might have not even won their 17th NBA championship. Rajon Rondo is thrilled to impart knowledge to Trae Young On ‘All The Smoke’, Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson were joined by Rajon Rondo. Jackson asked Rondo about how he felt being the veteran on the roster and the person a young star like Trae Young would now look up to. “I am very excited,” Rondo stated. “We’ve been in the gym a couple...

Religious leaders call for global ban on gay conversion therapies Sizing up the NBAs title contenders: Part 2 The NBA may get back to being a superteam's league once the dust settles on 2021 free agency, but for now, there's an uncharacteristically large number of teams with paths to contention. Over the next three days, we're breaking down the reasons to believe in those contenders - and the reasons to doubt them. © Photo illustration by Nick Roy / theScore Monday, we looked at the league's four most obvious title contenders. Today, we examine the Eastern Conference's second tier. Wednesday, it's the West's turn. Miami HeatReasons to believe: As the bubble experience showcased, no East team is better equipped for postseason basketball. The Heat have an alpha closer in Jimmy Butler; a prototypical big man for the modern game in Bam Adebayo; a ton of shooting, hard-nosed defenders; and one of the NBA's most cerebral coaches in Erik Spoelstra. They also boast a roster that...

    US waterways benefit international trade and resource conservation This Bankrupt Restaurant Chain Is Rebounding With a New Location Doc Rivers Needs to Change Up the Clippers Defensive Scheme in Game 4 Much of the buzz about Sunday afternoon's matchup between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks rightfully surrounded Luka Dončić, superstar in the making, who canned a 28-foot step-back three to defeat Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in overtime. What has flown mostly under the radar because of the spectacular play that ended the game was how the Clippers even got there. They were up 21 on Dallas and blew the lead. They have no injury excuse to fall back on. Leonard and George both played most of the second half. Yet Los Angeles couldn't beat a Mavs team that was missing its second-best player. © Provided by The Big Lead Doc Rivers coaching up Marcus Morris Some of that can be chalked up to the greatness of Dončić. Some can be attributed to George's exceptionally poor shooting continuing to rear its ugly head as "Playoff...
