Florida State suspends Jameis Winston for entire Clemson game!



img24238608 Florida State suspends Jameis Winston for entire Clemson game!

Citing results of a “continuing investigation” into an incident Tuesday, Florida State has suspended quarterback Jameis Winston for Saturday’s entire game against Clemson, the school announced late Friday night.

Click here for more NCAA picks. Florida State may be in for an upset with their star quarterback watching from the sidelines.

The one-sentence statement, which was e-mailed at 11:07 p.m. Eastern time, was signed by interim president Garnett Stokes and athletics director Stan Wilcox. Football coach Jimbo Fisher’s name was nowhere to be found.

This was merely the latest in a string of incidents involving Winston, who was accused of sexual assault last year. Winston, who led Florida State to the national title, was never charged with a crime, but the stain on his reputation greatly increased the scrutiny on his off-field behavior.

Florida State, which is under investigation by the Federal government over whether it violated Title IX in its handling of the sexual assault allegations, also is investigating whether Winston violated the school’s code of conduct.

There was no indication Friday night that the increased suspension was related to anything other than Tuesday’s incident on Florida State’s campus.

Florida State backup Sean Maguire, a redshirt sophomore who has thrown 26 passes in his career, will start for the No. 1-ranked Seminoles in Winston’s place. This development obviously changes the dynamic for No. 24 Clemson, which began the week as a three-touchdown underdog according to Las Vegas oddsmakers, and potentially Florida State’s chances of making the first College Football Playoff.

Four reasons the Broncos-Seahawks rematch may go to the Broncos this time!


denver broncos vs seattle seahawks Four reasons the Broncos Seahawks rematch may go to the Broncos this time!

It was over by the time Manny Ramirez’s snap flew over Peyton Manning’s head. That safety on the Broncos’ first drive set the tone for Super Bowl XLVIII. By the time Denver finally got on the board in the third quarter, the Seahawks had already put up 36 points on the way to a 43-8 victory.

So how will the Broncos avoid such a lopsided result against the Seahawks in their Week 3 regular season rematch? Here are four things that will be different this year.

1 ) The defense is better.

The Broncos added four Pro Bowl players to their starting defense who weren’t there in February. Three signed with the team as free agents this offseason in defensive end Demarcus Ware, cornerback Aqib Talib and safety T.J. Ward. Add the return of a healthy Von Miller to the mix at outside linebacker and the Broncos should be considerably better equipped to both get to Russell Wilson quicker and to limit the big play capabilities of Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin. The team has still struggled against the pass somewhat in the first two weeks of the season, giving up the third most passing yards per game in the NFL at the moment, but part of that can be attributed to having both Indy and Kansas City both throwing a lot while attempting second-half comebacks.

2) Regular season Peyton Manning

Arguably one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL regular season, Manning has struggled in each of his three Super Bowl appearances. Even Super Bowl XLI, which saw Manning win the game’s MVP award after rallying the Colts over the Bears, started with four ill-considered passes and an interception. For whatever reason, Manning has struggled to be the dominant player in the postseason that he is during the fall. While this contest will certainly be a big game, it’s just one of 16 on the schedule.

3) The return of Ryan Clady

The three-time Pro Bowl left tackle missed most of the 2013 season with a Lisfranc injury, forcing the Broncos to shuffle their offensive line. He’s back protecting Manning’s blind side, moving Chris Clark back to his natural right tackle spot and Orlando Franklin inside to left guard. His return may not be enough to stifle Seattle’s dominant defense, but it certainly gives Denver a slight upgrade on the five-man unit they brought to MetLife Stadium in February.

4) The receiving corps

The addition of Emmanuel Sanders adds a different dimension and more speed to the mix, as well as the flexibility to do more with the free agent signee now that Wes Welker is back in the lineup. The one thing evident in the first two weeks was the increasing role tight end Julius Thomas will continue to play in the offense. The fourth-year tight end has become even more crucial in the red zone, with Manning finding him for three touchdowns against the Colts.


Over/Under on when EJ Manuel will be released from the Buffalo Bills: Week 6


maneul preseason over story Over/Under on when EJ Manuel will be released from the Buffalo Bills: Week 6

Add former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly to the list of people who are starting to worry about the Buffalo Bills’ quarterback situation.

What are the Buffalo Bills chances of making a splash this season? Highly unlikely, but that doesn’t mean you can’t place a wager on literally anyone else to finish better than them. You can even go so far to make some super bowl betting. My money would be on the Broncos, Seahawks, 49ers, or Patriots.

Kelly joined Sirius XM NFL Radio and was asked what he thought of EJ Manuel and the Bills’ quarterbacks. The Hall of Famer didn’t hold anything back, either.

Adding to the quarterback issue is that neither Jeff Tuel or Thad Lewis has played well enough to win the backup quarterback job at this point.

“I think it’s what you see,” Marrone said. “They either have to play better or we have to look to see if there’s someone that can better that position, like we would any other position. If we feel at the end of the day that it’s not good enough to win with, which we haven’t seen that yet, there’s only two ways to go. Either you put a lot of work into those guys and getting them better until you get to that position where you feel comfortable with it, or you have to upgrade that position some other way.”

Lewis hasn’t been particularly happy about his play, either.

“I think it’s been alright,” Lewis said. “Not like I would have liked it to have gone.”

Being worried about his job security isn’t exactly new to Lewis. He was in the same position a year ago with the Bills, so he’s used to the uneasy feeling heading into the final preseason game before roster cuts.

“It’s been like that ever since I’ve been in the NFL,” Lewis said. “It’s nothing new, but at the same time, it’s football. There’s always going to be competition. If you’re scared of competition, you shouldn’t play the spot.”

Ultimately, Lewis or Tuel won’t determine the Bills’ success, though. Buffalo’s playoff hopes are riding on Manuel. Kelly acknowledged that in the interview with Sirius XM.

Bills coach Doug Marrone said Monday he’s behind Manuel 110 percent and is focused on his development. He thinks it’s important to surround the second-year quarterback with enough talent so that he can have a fair chance to succeed.

“We have to have people around him playing well, there’s no doubt about that,” Marrone said.

“The quarterback, when you’re winning gets too much of the credit and when you’re losing he gets too much of the blame. We’re going to progress with him. He’s not going to turn around and be a franchise guy overnight. That doesn’t happen often.”

Are the Saints going to cut Champ Bailey?!?!


 

Champ Bailey 2 Are the Saints going to cut Champ Bailey?!?!

Champ Bailey was talked up as a big free agent acquisition in New Orleans out of respect for his 12 Pro Bowl appearances. There hasn’t been much talk about whether this version of Bailey can truly be an asset on the field.

Place a wager on the Saints or any of the other 31 NFL teams with sports betting at CarbonSports.ag. The Saints are already a huge favorite to potentially make it to the Super Bowl!

Greg Bedard of TheMMQB.com writes that Bailey won’t help the Saints as much as the team hopes. Bailey has “lost a step” and is much “stiffer in the hips” at age 36. That’s not a surprise. This is:

“It’s early, but it would not be a shock if Bailey, who has just $500,000 guaranteed on his contract, doesn’t make the team,” Bedard writes. “The Saints have some promising young defensive backs who might have to be kept. Undrafted free agent Pierre Warren, for instance, was making plays all over the field.”

It’s worth noting that this passage is below a section of the article that entitled “STRONG OPINION THAT I MAY REGRET BY NOVEMBER.” So it’s hardly a guarantee that Bailey is not going to make the roster.

Still, this is how it ends for a lot of Hall of Fame players. The next generation arrives, and guys like Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens wind up losing camp battles to young players that you’ve never heard of. (Darius Watts made the 2005 Denver Broncos over Rice.)

Bailey might still have something to offer as a leader and a player that provides depth for the Saints secondary. But counting on him as a starter was probably always asking too much.

 


Johnny Manziel’s jersey is already the top selling jersey in the league!



manziel 4 Johnny Manziels jersey is already the top selling jersey in the league!
NFL:

He’s No. 2 on the depth chart, but No. 1 at the cash register.

Rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel has yet to take a snap for the Cleveland Browns, but the former Texas A&M star alreadyleads the league in jersey sales, per NFLShop.com. The passer’s No. 2 garb outsold all others during the first quarter of the league’s fiscal year.

Manziel mowed down quarterbacks Russell Wilson of theSeahawks (No. 2), Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers (No. 3) andPeyton Manning of the Broncos (No. 4). Seattle cornerbackRichard Sherman and Rams rookie pass rusher Michael Samfilled out the top six slots.

JFF wasn’t the only rookie signal-caller making waves: Minnesota’s Teddy Bridgewater (No. 13) outsold Vikings All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson (No. 14), while Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles finished No. 18 between Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill. Seattle’s “12th Fan” jerseys, admirably, ranked 10th.

Darren Rovell of ESPN.com points out that Manziel’s ranking is the highest a Browns player has finished since the NFL began tracking individual player sales in 2001. Brady Quinn opened the 2007 campaign with the No. 2 top-selling jersey, only to plummet to No. 17 by season’s end.

If Manziel emerges as more than just another Browns passer destined for the scrap heap, he’ll move units deep into the future.
