Dez Bryant warns Cowboys to not test his loyalty
2014-11-15

Bryant, who can become a free agent after the season, hasn't signed yet, although Cowboys offensive tackle Tyron Smith previously got a massive deal. Recently, the story has become that the Cowboys are worried about giving Bryant a large guarantee because of off-the-field concerns, according to Yahoo's Rand Getlin. Bringing Bryant's past up again is a risky negotiating tactic, especially since the Cowboys could have played up the fact that they stuck with Bryant through his troubles. Bryant is making it moot anyway by dominating most weeks. The Cowboys aren't letting him walk. Everyone knows that.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill reported that Cowboys COO Stephen Jones said they have offered Bryant "some pretty nice contracts." It hasn't been enough. It's not the money that Bryant is worried about.

I just know what Im going to accept and I know what Im not going to accept, Bryant said, according to the Star-Telegram. You know, its not about the money. Its not about none of that. I just feel like a little respect should play a factor in that. I love it [here]. I really do. But every day you grow. Lets see what happens. Its all about respect. Its all about respect. I am a very loyal person, but just dont test my loyalty.

It sounds like it's on the verge of getting contentious in Dallas (if it isn't already). Owner Jerry Jones tried calming the waters earlier this week.


"What we want to do is have an agreement for the rest of Dezs career, Jones said, according to the Dallas Morning News. To me, that says a lot about the concern about off-the-field [issues] if we want him on the Dallas Cowboys for the rest of his career."

Again, it's almost impossible to envision the Cowboys letting Bryant go. He might be the team's most talented player. The biggest goal from now until the extension is finished might be to keep from more public squabbling, to make sure the smiles are as wide as possible when the deal is finally signed.




NFL: Kirk Cousins, Robert Griffin III's backup, suffers injury
2013-08-20

"He's OK, people," Griffin told the awaiting group of reporters.
He'd better be.
The Washington Redskins are running out o Apuestas Breeders Cup f healthy quarterbacks.
With Griffin again a spectator as he works his way back from major knee surgery, the team's insurance policy suffered an injury of his own.
The preliminary diagnosis says Cousins sprained his right foot in the second quarter of Monday night's 24-13 exhibition win over the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers, although an MRI is scheduled for Tuesday to determine if it's something worse.
Injuries -- including one to Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell -- penalties and turnovers dominated a mess of a game, although Griffin once again upstaged the proceedings before the first ball was kicked.
He dressed in full uniform for the second straight game even though everyone knew he wasn't going to play.
And his surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, chatted with owner Dan Snyder and general manager Bruce Allen on the sideline while Griffin was warming up. Coach Mike Shanahan said it's Andrews who has to give the thumbs-up for Griffin to play, and the target date for the quarterback's return remains the regular-season opener Sept. 9.
Bell hurt his right foot in the first quarter, another injury to go with the sore left knee that kept him out of Pittsburgh's exhibition opener.
Broncos: ESPN reported that All-Pro linebacker Von Miller might have to sit out at least six games for violating the league's drug abuse policy. Previously, it was believed Miller was facing a monthlong suspension to start the 2013 season.
Jaguars: Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley named Blaine Gabbert his starting quarterback, the same day he announced the former Missouri standout will miss the rest of the preseason because of a broken thumb.
Patriots: Tom Brady glanced down at his left knee brace, the one he wasn't wearing when he was injured last week. It was on at practice Monday, with some encouragement from Patriots owner Robert Kraft. "Mr. Kraft felt pretty strongly about me wearing it," Brady told a pack of reporters. "He said, 'What's the problem?' I said, 'I'll wear it. I'll wear it.' "
Trade: The Cleveland Browns acquired offensive lineman John Moffitt from Seattle for defensive lineman Brian Sanford.
Jets: Coach Rex Ryan confirmed that linebacker Quinton Coples is out indefinitely with an ankle injury, and Garrett McIntyre will take his place on the starting defense.
Titans: Tight end Delanie Walker has passed his physical and been removed from the physically unable to perform list. Walker, a former 49er who signed as a free agent this offseason, had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee after the Titans wrapped up their offseason program.

Batch, Fitzpatrick and Gradkowski continue to cover the spread
2010-09-29

This past weekend three veteran quarterbacks got their first starts of the season. Each of these three signal callers had previous BMW Motorcyles Rental in Costa Rica ly made starts for their current teams and all fared reasonably well in those games combing for a 9-7 record. More importantly, they compiled a 10-5-1 ATS record in those starts.

Sportsbook.com bettors that had faith in these three vets profited this past Sunday as all three QB’s helped their teams cover the spread. All three quarterbacks are expected to start again in week four, providing further opportunity to cash in on this angle.

Making his first start for Pittsburgh since 2007, Charlie Batch improved to 4-1 both ATS and SU in five starts as a Steeler. Batch did more than just manage the game for the Steelers, throwing three first half TD passes en route to a dominating 38-13 win over previously unbeaten Tampa Bay. This week, Sportsbook.com has Pittsburgh (3-0 ATS, 3-0 SU) as a 1.5 point favorite at home against division rival Baltimore (1-2 ATS, 2-1 SU). The Steelers have beaten the Ravens in Pittsburgh each of the last four seasons and is 2-1-1 ATS in those games.

An interesting betting trend points out that Pittsburgh is a solid 42-23 ATS (+16.7 Units) in October games since 1992. The average score was PITTSBURGH 22.6, OPPONENT 15.8 - (Rating = 1*).

After going 5-2-1 ATS and 4-4 SU in eight starts for Buffalo a year ago, Ryan Fitzpatrick kept things close for the Bills in New England last weekend as the Bills beat the spread for the first time this season in a 38-30 loss. Fitzpatrick completed 20 of 28 pass attempts for 247 yards, 2 TD and 2 INT. Despite the two costly picks, the front office must have been encouraged as they released opening day starter Trent Edwards on Monday. Fitzpatrick and the Bills return home to face the New York Jets after two weeks on the road. Buffalo played well in its home opener, allowing just one TD in a 15-10 loss to Miami. The Bills are a 5-point home underdog to the Jets.

Play On - Home underdogs or pick (Buffalo) - after failing to cover the spread in 2 out of their last 3 games, a terrible team (<=25%) playing a team with a winning record. (104-52 since 1983.) (66.7%, +46.8 units. Rating = 3*).

Getting his first start of the season, Bruce Gradkowski appeared to have led Oakland to a straight up win as a 5.5-point underdog in Arizona. However, Sebastian Janikowski’s 32-yard FG attempt sailed wide left on the final play of the Raiders’ 24-23 loss to the Cardinals. Gradkowski’s numbers were okay, 17-34, 255, 1 TD and a pick, but he once again showed that the Raiders are more competitive over the last two seasons with him under center. Oakland was a .500 team ATS with or without Gradkowski a year ago, but was 2-2 SU in Gradkowski’s four starts compared to 3-9 SU when he did not start. Oakland is getting a field goal at home against Houston this Sunday. Home underdogs have performed well so far this season, going 13-7-1 ATS, while winning 11 of the 21 contests outright.

Whether it’s due to injury (in Batch’s case) or ineffectiveness by the previous starter (in the case of Fitzpatrick and Gradkowski), veteran QBs who know their team’s systems continue to be solid plays. Bet on them now at Sportsbook.com.


The Raiders barring injuries and consistency, have no excuse but to turn it around in 2010
2010-06-18

Injuries are apart of the game and not every player can be on point all the time. But enough is enough, the Raiders HAVE to t video poker urn it around in 2010 or some heads will roll in their organization.



Head Coach Tom Cable is a hard working, blue-collar, and focused coach who before the 2010 season was in way over his head. But now the Raiders have the pieces in place to make a run at least at between 8-8 and 9-7 records. Playoffs? That is going too far. Cable's job hinges on if Jason Campbell has the season he is capable of and the Raiders receivers and running backs play to and above their potential, and the NFL betting community agrees.



The Raiders have a defense good enough to keep them in games, although the youth and lack of long term starting experience on that unit is something to be pondered about. Talent and athleticism has never been a problem for Raiders defenses in the past 2000s decade, it has been consistency, injuries, and underachievement.



The defensive line and the secondary are the positions where its members are most proven and experienced. The projected starters for the defensive line are defensive ends Lamarr Houston (rookie-2nd round draft pick) and Richard Seymour, as well as defensive tackles Tommy Kelly and Desmond Bryant. Two of those players [Seymour and Kelly] started together in 2009 for the Raiders and right now they are by far the most proven players and the best of the lot of the starter on D-Line. Plus the Raiders have alternates/backups all over the place on this unit who can provide pass rush, depth, and relief among other things for the starters.  



As for the linebackers there is just too much youth and unproven players there to expect too much out of them. Rookie first round pick Rolando McClain takes over for the traded Kirk Morrison at inside linebacker. McClain has a heck of a road to cover to replace Morrison, but eventually McClain will be better than Morrison. Trevor Scott is a converted defensive end who was not a full-time starter in 2009 and the recent Kamerion Wimbley in some respects was considered a bust in Cleveland. Wimbley has so much talent as a pass rusher but is up to him and coaches Mike Haluchak (linebackers) and John Marshall (defensive coordinator) to coax that talent out of him.



The Raiders have one of the better secondaries in the AFC, but free safety Michael Huff's game has to catch up with the rest of the secondary for the unit to be at its best.  



The wide receivers in 2010 have got to take pressure off of Pro Bowl tight end Zach Miller. Darrius Heyward-Bey, Louis Murphy, Chaz Schilens, and Johnnie Lee Higgins have to pick up where they left off from 2009 and start seriously thinking about approaching between 800 through 1,000 yard seasons (especially Murphy and Heyward-Bey). That foursome MUST step up and be held accountable for new quarterback Jason Campbell to succeed. Heyward-Bey has the dilemma of not only proving that he was worthy of being picked eight in the 2009 NFL Draft, but that the Raiders made the right choice in selecting him over the more talented and Michael Crabtree who went to the 49ers a little latter in the first round of that draft. All those in NFL betting know that the Raiders are famous for poor draft picks.



Bottom line is if the Raiders' receivers and running backs don't stay healthy and consistent in 2010, the Raiders are in trouble no matter how good their defense plays. Darren McFadden, Michael Bush, and Justin Fargas (and maybe even on the downside of his career, and fellow running back Michael Bennett) have to stay in the lineup and use the talent they were born with. EVERY single position on the Raiders has to work in 2010 for them to do anything in 2010. If there ever was a team in the NFL in 2010 who needs consistency from every position on its team to make to at least 7-9 or 8-8, its the Oakland Raisers.
