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.

Pence's Indianapolis Stunt Cost at Least $240,000

Merriam-Webster defines "stunt" as an action "performed or undertaken chiefly to gain attention or publicity." That word, then, seems a pretty good way to describe Vice President Mike Pence's walkout at Sunday's Colts-49ers game. At this point, whether they support the Veep's actions or not, nobody seriously believes that the whole thing was not scripted well in advance.

Yesterday, we wondered how much this little piece of performance art cost John Q. Taxpayer. It would seem that we're not the only ones. CNN's Rene Marsh did a little quick math, and came up with a price tag of $242,500. However, that is just an estimate of his airplane travel costs, which are far and away the easiest thing on which to put a price tag.

The Washington Post's Phillip Bump is also curious, but notes that many costs will be difficult or impossible to peg. There's Pence's travel to and from the stadium (with police escort), and his extensive security detail, neither of which was cheap. Then there are the costs imposed on the other 70,000 spectators at the game, all of whom had to spend extra time and cope with extra hassle because of heightened security. That extra security, in turn, had to be paid for by the Indianapolis Colts. Then there is whatever time that Pence and Donald Trump spent on this little demonstration; presidential and vice presidential work time is valuable, and every minute spent planning a grandstand is a minute not spent on other, presumably more pressing, problems. Add it all up, and our guess of a $1 million price tag still seems quite a reasonable estimate.

Hopefully. They sure haven't looked like a team capable of making the playoffs so far this year.

But amazingly they had a chance to win all 3 games they lost...they seem to hit flat spots in games, you can not be flat during certain series and still win...and don't get me started on the Officiating...even the announcers were questioning that shit Sunday and the same crap happened the week before against KC

Insane ending tonight.

Chiefs are a good team. There's hope for the Raiders.

What is wrong with the reffs and the calls and non calls...somehow the Raiders overcame them and managed to score the winning touchdown 4 times before the officials gave it to them...even with a 10 second run off...and 3 untimed downs has to be a record... :idea:

One of the jobs of a good NFL ref is to help the odds-makers keep the point spread where they want it.

It was over when they were exposed for cheating at a high level, the first 3 super bowls have an asterisk, the 4th one has deflated balls...the last one I wouldn't doubt if they had some other scam going, as far as I'm concerned the top teams in Superbowl history are the Pittsburgh Steelers (6), the San Francisco 49ers (5), the Dallas Cowboys (5), the New York Giants (4), the Green Bay Packers (4), the Oakland (LA) Raiders (3), the Denver Broncos (3), and the Washington Redskins (3).

You guys are silly. I never used to be a a Patriots fan but they’ve been consistently good to great for a very long time. They are doing something right.
