Thanks plook,

well the boys lost their final 6-7 in a rain soaked game. Our quaterback lost his nerve after his first throw was almost intercepted, and was useless for the rest of the game. It should have been a walk in the park....

The French National Team beat the favorite, Germany, in the semi finals of the European U19 Championships, but succumbed to the Austrians in the final game 07-17. My boy got a TD against Germany but was out on concussion protocol in the last quarter. He's ok no damage whatsoever.
The thing that pisses me off...equipement choices. Had he have had his own helmet (which I paid for) he would not have been hurt. The national team had to scrimp on fucking Helmets in order to get nice jerseys ! Dimwits!

Jordan Morris Scores Go-Ahead Goal as USA Beats Jamaica in 2017 Gold Cup Final

Image

A Jordan Morris goal in the 88th minute helped led the United States to the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup title Wednesday.

The 22-year-old fired home the game-winner to break the 1-1 tie, leading the Americans to a 2-1 victory over Jamaica in the final at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Michael Bradley earned the Golden Ball as the best player of the tournament despite playing only three of the six games.

This is the sixth Gold Cup title for the United States, one short of Mexico's seven. Canada is the only other team to win this tournament.

Jamaica has now lost consecutive Gold Cup finals after falling to Mexico in 2015.

$96 million QB one of the worst in the NFL

Image

The Cincinnati Bengals are not a good football team, and Andy Dalton—who signed a six-year, $96 million contract extension in 2014—is not a good starting quarterback. It's that simple, and Dalton and his teammates provided us with plenty of evidence Sunday.

At home against a banged-up, beatable division rival, Dalton completed just 16 of 31 passes and committed five turnovers (four interceptions and a fumble) as the Baltimore Ravens hammered the Bengals 20-0. It was the second-lowest-rated game of the 29-year-old's career, and it marked the first time in over a decade that a team was shut out at home in its season opener.

Few expected that, but you shouldn't be surprised. The Bengals are coming off a six-win 2016 season and an inept 2017 offseason, and there are indications the team and its quarterback have regressed.

Despite the fact he was supposed to be building momentum entering his prime, Dalton's rate-based numbers plummeted in 2016. His passer rating dropped from 106.3 to 91.8, he ranked 24th among 30 qualified quarterbacks in touchdown rate and, as Pro Football Focus points out, he was particularly ineffective when facing pressure.
