"There's not a world of difference, there's a galaxy of difference," Johnson said. "As a college coach, I was a mentor, I was kind of a father figure, I did a tremendous amount of counseling with the players.

And the totality of the week - the Derby, meeting peers he at first thought "intimidating" but then loosened up, and finally his historic two-way turn - was a career highlight.
Originally drafted with the 30th overall pick out of high school in 2018, Ginn opted to play at Mississippi State and was later drafted in the second round of the 2020 MLB Amateur Draft. He needed Tommy John surgery in March 2020, but he’s since bounced back for an excellent start to his minor-league career.

The only things hurting the Braves potentially trading for Rodriguez are him being under team control for two more full seasons after this, as well as Pittsburgh possibly having several suitors to trade for him. Given that Rodriguez is only making $1.7 million in his age-31 season out of the Dominican Republic, the Braves could absolutely afford to take on his minimal second-half salary.San Diego Padres Face Masks

At this point in his career, it’ll be difficult for the Cubs to give Rizzo the money he’s looking for with his offense heading on a downwards trend. The Athletic (subscription required), reported Rizzo turned down a Cubs offer of five-years, $70 million this past March.

It's safe to presume the Bengals will keep four or five at the position here -- it's quietly one of the stronger spots on the roster. But it's not easy to see the exact final depth chart. Uzomah and Sample are in, obviously, though we can't know if Sample will actually overtake the former second-round pick in the offense itself. After that, Mason Schreck has been superb depth and on special teams (to the point other teams have sniffed around a trade) and Mitchell Wilcox seems to be trending in that direction. Thaddeus Moss is the big wild card. He had a fun rapport with Burrow during that 2019 season at LSU and he's got a year of pro experience under his belt after playing in Washington last year. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him crack the final roster, either. For now, pencil in Uzomah, Sample, Schreck and Wilcox, with Moss just on the edge depending on what happens at other positions.Philadelphia Eagles Face Masks

FanDuel, which by most metrics is the largest sportsbook operator in the U.S., has issued bad beat refunds more than 20 times since launching in 2018.

Mike Raffensperger, FanDuel's chief marketing officer, emphasizes that the biggest criteria, though, is "Did this make the outcome feel less fun? Did it feel like some kind of injustice?"

Sigler (12-5): Unlike the Panthers, Atlanta will just be hoping to get this season over as quickly as possible. Their roster stinks. They've got few strengths to lean on between an aging quarterback and a thin defense, and the Saints should run all over them to close out the year. Hudak (12-5): I frankly forgot about Week 18, and the early bye week will start to show the effects of fatigue by the end of the season. I fear Atlanta may sneak this one out, as they tend to do once a year. Kistner (12-5): Falcons again and at the perfect time. No resting starters this year.

If you count nose tackle Michael Pierce (2020 opt-out), defensive end Danielle Hunter (missed all last season with a neck injury) and linebacker Anthony Barr (played in only two games due to a torn pectoral muscle), Minnesota could have seven new defensive starters.

Sportsbooks aren’t awfully optimistic about the Eagles heading into 2021. PointsBet has them lined at 6.5 wins. Philadelphia’s team typifies volatility, with questions at quarterback and receiver, plus concerns around the health and age of their offensive line. They struggled on defense last year, allowing an above-average amount of points and yards per game, and were unable to make any big acquisitions via free agency or the draft to bolster that unit. In a season with 17 games, 6.5 wins is a surprisingly low number for a team that features a high-upside quarterback and multiple first-round receivers. However, if things don’t pan out for Hurts, a seven-win season could be a pipe dream. This line looks right but if I had to take a stand, I’d back Hurts and the over.

At 6-foot-1 and 253 pounds, former Kansas City Chiefs running back Christian Okoye must have seemed like a runaway train to would-be tacklers. Combined with his nationality, his brute strength inspired teammate Irv Eatman to create a brilliant nickname. A native of Enugu, Nigeria, Okoye didn't begin playing football until he attended college at Azusa Pacific. He showed enough promise at the NAIA school to be drafted in the second round by the Chiefs in 1987. Okoye rushed for 4,897 yards and 40 touchdowns in six NFL seasons. He led the NFL with 1,480 rushing yards in 1989.
The unveiling of the unofficial all-time NFL sack leaders was kind to the Vikings. Alan Page was credited with 148.5 sacks for his career (1967-81), which puts him eighth all-time (unofficially, of course). He had 108.5 of those sacks as a Viking, before tallying 40 sacks over his final three-plus seasons as a Chicago Bear.
The persona of Joe Cool dates to at least 1971 in pop culture, with Snoopy from the comic strip Peanuts, but it came to be connected in a football sense with Joe Montana. That tends to happen when you quarterback your teams to a 4-0 record in Super Bowls with 28 game-winning drives and 26 fourth-quarter comebacks. Montana threw for 40,551 yards and 273 touchdown passes over 15 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. The eight-time Pro Bowler was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on the first ballot in 2000.

The best prediction you can make about the NFL is that things are never going to stay the same. With what was a 16-game season -- and now is up to 17 -- we're always going to overreact to things we saw in the small sample. Too often, we end up using that as our new opinion or baseline of how a team will perform going forward. Often, history tells us that won't be the case.
Considering both Collins and Barnes have the ability to play the OLB role in this defense, and the depth there is thinner, the chances the team keeps five off-ball LBs on the active roster and another one or two on the practice squad seems perfectly reasonable.

After coming out of Western Kentucky and the Conference USA, it's taken Iyiegbuniwe time to adjust to the level of competition in the NFL. But within Sean Desai's system, he should thrive. Albeit for Iggy to see the field, it will likely require Danny Trevathan to get injured. But for Joel, 2021 is the year to rise and shine finally. As a linebacker, he's relentless in pursuit of the football, has the speed to protect the boundary, and is a powerful tackler. In college, he displayed a remarkable ability to take on and shed blocks from running backs and offensive linemen through a combination of speed and power. The 2021 season for Joel Iyiegbuniwe could be what 2019 was for Fred Warner (118 tackles, one interception, three forced fumbles, and three sacks), or what 2014 was for Tahir Whitehead (86 tackles and two interceptions).NFL Tennessee Titans Team Face Coverings
Whether you're projecting player stats for an entire season or a single week, there are countless factors to consider outside of what happened in the past. During the offseason, though, numbers from the previous year are often the only hard data that we have to point to. Those numbers can be used as a reliable point of reference when the right factors are considered, and we now have an understanding of which stats are a sign of things to come for quarterbacks, as well as which ones might not serve as a future indicator.
Brown had 34 tackles, two sacks and 12 quarterback hits while playing 70 percent of the defensive snaps for Carolina.
