Troy Polamalu with one of the best sacks you’ll ever see!


It’s opening Sunday in the NFL, and Troy Polamalu is back to his old tricks with this perfectly-timed blitz against the Titans.  Watch Polamalu (and his hair) anticipate the snap and launch into the backfield to take down Jake Locker, who never had a chance.


Peyton Manning goes off for 7 TD’s to tie the NFL record!


 

peyton custom 3744b4b5ecf6b2b36d9320614b938f5b330a204c s6 c30 Peyton Manning goes off for 7 TDs to tie the NFL record!

A record-tying seven touchdown passes — something no one had done in 44 years — made it worth the while.

Connecting with his most prized addition, Wes Welker, the former college basketball player Julius Thomas and Demaryius Thomas for two touchdowns each, Manning directed Denver to a 49-27 victory over the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night in the N.F.L. opener, a much-anticipated rematch against the team that ended the Broncos’ playoff run in January.

Manning is the sixth quarterback in league history to throw seven touchdown passes in a game and the first since Joe Kapp did it for Minnesota against Baltimore on Sept. 28, 1969.

Manning was 27 of 42 for 462 yards with seven touchdowns and no interceptions.

It was all part of a thrashing of the team that put a harsh end to what had looked like a Super Bowl-bound 2012 in Denver. The rematch came nearly eight months after Baltimore beat Denver, 38-35, in double overtime on an icy January night in the same stadium.

The Broncos waited all off-season for the rematch, then for 33 minutes more when a lightning storm in the area delayed the start.

When they took the field, it was clear how much had changed.

Pass rusher Elvis Dumervil moved from Denver to Baltimore as part of a bizarre, fax-infused contract squabble. Receiver Brandon Stokley also switched sides. The Broncos lost their best defender, Von Miller, to a drug suspension while Baltimore had to rebuild its defense after losing its emotional leaders, Ed Reed and Ray Lewis.

The Ravens suffered another loss of sorts when they were forced to play the season’s traditional opener on the road because of a conflict with the Orioles in Baltimore. The N.F.L. hung a banner of Ravens quarterback Joey Flacco above Denver’s stadium, but he hardly felt at home.

Armed with a new six-year, $120.6 million contract, he matched the Broncos score for score in the first half but had to play catch-up after falling behind, 35-17, early in the third quarter. His final numbers: 34 of 62 for 362 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Manning’s record-tying seventh touchdown covered only a few yards in the air, but Demaryius Thomas hauled in the pass in the left flat and raced past several tired defenders for a 78-yard touchdown that capped the scoring.


Danny Trevathan with the play of the year and it happened in the first game of the season!

Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan had an opportunity to seal the deal Thursday night against the Baltimore Ravens, with a play that nearly wound up costing his team much more than a lost touchdown in his team’s 49-27 win.

Trevathan snagged a Joe Flacco fourth-quarter pass and sailed into the end zone for what appeared to be a 48-17 lead for the Broncos. One problem: The ball didn’t come with him. Trevathan casually dropped it at the 2-yard line as he floated in for the non-score.

“It was a young mistake. I was just in the moment,” Trevathan told reporters after the game, per theBroncos’ official website. “I thought I was in the end zone. Next time I’m going (to) hold the ball up high and give it to a fan or something. But it’s not going to happen again. I’m growing from it and I’m not … going to let anybody stop me.”

The lost touchdown, in a game long since decided, paled in comparison to Wesley Woodyard’s apparent injury on the play. The Broncos linebacker attempted to fish the ball off the end-zone turf, only to haveRavens receiver Brandon Stokley roll into him. Woodyard, an underrated defensive cog, suffered a nasty-looking ankle injury, but he wound up re-entering the game, taking Trevathan’s gaffe in stride.

“Oh, he’s going to get his later,” Woodyard joked after the win.

Trevathan, the Broncos’ sixth-round draft pick in 2012, said he expects to get another interception this season. His ball-hawking skills Thursday night suggested it will happen, too. If and when it does, he might never let go.


Patriots cut Tim Tebow; is his NFL career finally done?


nfl u tebow b1 576 Patriots cut Tim Tebow; is his NFL career finally done?

A Heisman Trophy, a riveting playoff game, an international following.

Tim Tebow won all that in his football career.

On Saturday, he lost his third NFL job in 18 months. It might be hard to find another.

The quarterback with two big problems — throwing the ball and reading defenses — was cut by the New England Patriots less than 12 weeks after they signed him and just five days before the season.

But, as Tebow sees it, this long journey is not over.

“I will remain in relentless pursuit of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback,” he tweeted.

Coach Bill Belichick gave the player whose profile was higher than his production what may have been his last chance when he signed him June 11, the day the Patriots’ three-day minicamp began. And Tebow is grateful.

He thanked Belichick, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and owner Robert Kraft, who said last Tuesday he was “rooting” for Tebow but would let Belichick make the decision.

In his tweet, Tebow thanked the “entire Patriots organization for giving me the opportunity to be a part of such a classy organization.”

The Patriots cut 12 other players and put safety Adrian Wilson on injured reserve. That left them with 51 players, two below the regular-season limit they had to reach by 6 p.m. EDT.

Belichick didn’t comment on Tebow’s release.

But NFL.com analyst and former NFL executive Gil Brandt wasn’t surprised.

“He has had a great career and I think it’s probably time for him to admit that he just wasn’t right up to NFL standards,” Brandt said. “I’m sure that whatever he does in life he’ll be a huge success.

Tebow was surely that at Florida, where he won the Heisman and two national championships while surrounded by talented teammates.

He was a success with Denver, for one season, when he went 7-1 in his first eight starts in 2011 then threw an 80-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime to give the Broncos a 29-23 playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tebow knelt on one knee — an expression of faith known as Tebowing — in the end zone.

But then a career of accomplishment descended into adversity.

Tebow led the Broncos into Foxborough the next weekend and lost 45-10 while completing barely a third of his passes.

He was traded to the New York Jets the following March and languished on the bench while coach Rex Ryan ignored fans’ calls for Tebow to replace a struggling Mark Sanchez. Tebow threw just eight passes, ran only 32 times and was cut last April 29.

For six weeks no team wanted him until the Patriots signed him to a low-risk, two-year contract with no guaranteed money. One person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press that Tebow would make the veteran’s minimum salary, $630,000 in 2013, with incentives.

At least he wouldn’t be in the center ring of a media circus that surrounded him in New York, not with Belichick’s tight rein on players’ interactions with reporters.

If anyone could turn him into a good NFL quarterback, it seemed, it would be Belichick. And McDaniels was a booster of Tebow, drafting him in the first round in 2010 as Denver’s head coach. There even was speculation that Belichick might find other positions for the mobile Tebow to play, but he worked out only with the quarterbacks.

And his passes still bounced at receivers’ feet and flew over their heads.


Rob Gronkowski out for at least week 1…


gronk Rob Gronkowski out for at least week 1...

It is “not realistic” to expect New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who underwent offseason back and forearm surgery, to be ready to play in the team’s regular-season opener against the Bills in Buffalo, sources familiar with the situation said Monday.

“It’s a huge stretch to think he could play against the Bills,” the source said.

Despite that, another source said Gronkowski “looks great, is doing great” during his workouts at the Patriots’ training facility, where he has been running and lifting.

Progress is being made, but not enough for there to be much confidence Gronkowski will be ready for the start of this season. Before then, one of the biggest roster decisions New England will have to make is whether to carry Gronkowski on the 53-man roster or place him on the physically unable to perform list, which would automatically sideline him for at least the first six games.

What the Patriots do with Gronkowski also could impact quarterback Tim Tebow, who is on the roster bubble in New England. Should New England place Gronkowski on the PUP list, it would give the Patriots additional roster flexibility that could mean carrying a third quarterback.

But if Gronkowski is not placed on PUP and stays on the roster, that will be one fewer spot available on the Patriots’ roster.
