NCAA considers new rule to reduce kickoff returns, which will get the NFL’s attention
The NFL has already followed the NCAA’s lead in changing a kickoff rule once, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see it happen again.
Here’s more from Boone on Ellsbury and Frazier:
Els will be on the trip (Wednesday) … then off (on Friday). Then we have a split-squad (Saturday). Similar situation there (as Thursday). And then we’ll go from there and kind of make a decision exactly which way we’re going to go and kind of map out what his plan will be in the next couple of weeks.
(Frazier) is continuing to do better, so that’s a good thing. The doctor has been here every day, so it’s been hands on with our neurologist. It’s obviously something we’re being very cautious with. We listen to the player a lot and all I can tell you is he continues to improve and we feel some momentum is starting to build and hopefully the baseball activities start ramping up. It’s something to treat conservatively, but he is getting better every day it seems like. I’m hoping baseball activities are almost upon us and it’s just how he progresses. The first time they started to ramp him up it seemed like he had a little bit of a setback. They had to back him off a little bit. So it’s going to be baby steps along the way just to see what he can truly handle.
The old-school GM who had vowed to kick ass on the day he was introduced had his ass kicked when the free-agent frenzy began in earnest.
From hog mollies to hog follies.
Until the old-school GM kicked ass on Wednesday.
Bet on this: The days of the New York Football Giants being bullied are over.
Gettleman absolutely overpaid for Nate Solder (four years, $62 million) in making him the highest-paid left tackle in the game, but try telling that to Eli Manning. Who maybe would have thrown in a couple hundred thousand dollars if it meant sealing the deal.
Solder is 29, coming off a subpar year, but even in his sleep is better at protecting his quarterback’s blind side than Ereck Flowers. How do you suppose Tom Brady would have liked standing behind Flowers for the last three years?
