В началото на Юни отпразнувахме втория рожден ден на Адриан! Дърветата бяха точно толкова зелени, времето точно толкова променливо и всичко така нагласено, че да се чувствам като в деня когато се е родил. Тъмнокосото силно момченце, което почти между другото влезе в живота ни в онзи слънчев следобед е вече дете с характер. Учи се да говори и да споделя,тича по-бързо от мен и не спира да ме изненадва!

Слава богу, лошите дни не траят вечно, зъбите все някога изникват, а думите имат все повече смисъл! И ако не друго, то боровинки и балони винаги оправят нещата! Наздраве за втората годинка!

Raiders schedule 2018: Jon Gruden returns to less of a grind

Toughest tests: The Raiders were terrible on the road last season, going only 2-6 after they went to the playoffs with a 6-2 mark the season prior. They’ve got to get back to grinding for Gruden and winning close games away from the Black Hole. Opponent-wise, the Rams and Steelers plus their difficult AFC West foes make the home schedule more daunting in what could be the final season in Oakland. Denver, Kansas City and Los Angeles round out what’s arguably the league’s best division.

Biggest breaks: The Browns and Colts look like they would be breaks, but really, the most favorable matchups are on the road against the Cardinals, Bengals and Dolphins. Those five games are critical for the Raiders to return to the playoffs.

Bottom line: The Raiders will be significantly better under Gruden in time, but the coaching change plus remixed personnel in a difficult division will hold them back in the short term. Although Oakland will hang around in the AFC wild-card race because of the schedule’s weaknesses, the team will fall short of its surprise 2016 form. Record prediction: 8-8

The players in the room sounded off about why Colin Kaepernick, who voiced his social activism by kneeling during the anthem before games, had not been signed yet. The biggest theme seemed to be the consensus that the former 49ers quarterback should, in fact, be on a team.

“If he was on a roster right now, all this negativeness and divisiveness could be turned into a positive,” Eagles defensive lineman Chris Long said at the meeting adding, “We all agree in this room as players that he should be on a roster.”

Kaepernick’s former teammate Eric Reid, who was the first to kneel alongside him, was direct in saying Kaepernick was being blackballed.

“I feel like he was hung out to dry,” Reid said. “Everyone in here is talking about how much they support us. Nobody stepped up and said we support Colin’s right to do this. We all let him become Public Enemy No. 1 in this country, and he still doesn’t have a job.”

The conversation shifted into discussing ways around the continued attacks from President Donald Trump, who took to Twitter many times to express his disapproval of the player protests.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft said the problem is, “We have a president who will use that as fodder to do his mission that I don’t feel is in the best interests of America. It’s divisive and it’s horrible.”

John Schneider says Seahawks haven’t addressed quarterback position enough in draft

Youth DeMarco Murray Jersey The Seattle Seahawks have drafted only one quarterback in the eight years the front office has been led by head coach Pete Carroll and G.M. John Schneider. That selection was a massive success as it gave Seattle Russell Wilson in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, who has helped guide the Seahawks to five playoff appearances, two Super Bowl trips and a championship in his six seasons under center.
Youth Tyler Toffoli Authentic Black Adidas Jersey: NHL Los Angeles Kings #73 Home
Game Kids Jersey However, Schneider came to Seattle from the Green Bay Packers organization. He brought with him the fundamental idea of wanting to draft a quarterback every year like his former boss Ted Thompson aspired to do with the Packers. With only one quarterback selected in eight years, Schneider doesn’t feel he’s done a good enough job of bringing quarterbacks to Seattle.

Davis was re-signed and Morris added to the roster in recent weeks to fill out the team’s quarterback room as OTAs begin. However, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Schneider took a quarterback for the first time since drafting Wilson in 2012.

Griffin was born with a condition that resulted in amputation of his left hand when he was 4. He never has let it stop him, making 195 tackles, 33.5 tackles for loss, 18.5 sacks, three interceptions and four forced fumbles in his career at UCF.

Griffin improved his draft stock with a 4.38-second 40-yard dash and 20 repetitions in the 225-pound bench press in Indianapolis.

I’m hoping to be drafted and whatever team gives me an opportunity to be drafted and gives me an opportunity to play with them, that’s going to be Rodney McLeod Youth jersey a team that’s going to get a good caliber guy who’s going to give everything I’ve got, Griffin said. Whatever team does give me an opportunity, they’re going to see what Shaq Griffin is all about.

Durant, as he showed in the Game 5 victory over the Spurs, can carry the team. He is arguably the best pure scorer in the association. But if he’s continually trapped in pick-and-roll sets and the floor spacing is less than stellar, this could prove to be problematic in the next round against the New Orleans Pelicans, who swept the higher-seeded Portland Trail Blazers and often trapped Damian Lillard to force others to try to beat them.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday ahead of Thursday’s draft in Arlington, Texas, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones preemptively put rumors of a potential reunion with the polarizing wide receiver to bed.

Roundtable: We like Vegas’ chances to reach the Stanley Cup Final — and maybe even win it all

Victoria Matiash, fantasy columnist: Two years ago, Leicester City Football Club blew away the global sports world by winning England’s Premier League title for the first time in its 132-year history. Just months earlier, bookmakers’ odds on that happening were set at 5,000-1. By comparison, the Vegas Golden Knights were listed at 200-1 to win the Stanley Cup ahead of their inaugural season — by betting scale, a relatively level stroll through the park. While soccer isn’t hockey, the point is this stuff happens in all competition. It’s why we watch.
Authentic Youth Leonte Carroo Jersey Nike NFL Corey Moore Red Jersey Men's Limited: #43 Houston Texans Alternate Vapor Untouchable
The nuts and bolts appear to be there for Vegas. Even those more skeptical — including yours truly, who picked the Los Angeles Kings to win their first-round series in six games — have to admit that the Knights sport the preliminary markings Authentic Mike Gartner Jersey of a playoff winner.

He totaled 60 tackles, one interception, eight passes broken up and a forced fumble in 2017. Fitzpatrick is versatile, with coverage skills 鈥?he can play nickel corner over slot receivers and cover tight ends in man-to-man 鈥?as well as be the deep free safety center fielder.

He had 84 tackles with 11 passes broken up and two INTs in 2017. In the NFL, he’ll fit best as a strong safety as a tough presence in the box.

The Chiefs don’t draft until the 54th overall pick, but since taking over for John Dorsey last summer, Veach has proved aggressive in his approach. He has made several deals, including sending Smith to Washington and Peters to the Rams.

Sam Koch Elite Jersey Veach said his aggressive approach is just kind of who I am.

Thus, the Chiefs will have their eyes and ears open during the three-day draft, ready and willing to deal.

I think all cards are on the table, Veach said. If there’s that guy who we thought was a top-10 pick, and he’s there at 28, we have to be a least prepared and we have to have dialogue throughout this process. That’s why we have to start calling teams now and letting them know that we’re always open for business.

The Saints wasted little time: as soon as Pete Rozelle greeted everyone to what was still officially known as the NFL’s Selection Meeting they picked Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers out of South Carolina, to no one’s surprise. The Giants’ table at the Sheraton sprung to life. Team PR director Ed Croke theatrically tore up the index card with Rogers written on it, and handed another to Jim Heffernan of the NFL office.

Report: Giants front office is split on the No. 2 pick decision

Earlier during the draft process, former Giants defensive lineman Chris Canty claimed to have people within the organization who told him the team is very interested in Darnold and could trade up to the No. 1 overall pick to secure drafting him. Anonymous NFL executives who spoke with NJ Advance Media believe the Giants will draft Darnold if the Browns select Allen. The Browns have been connected to Allen, Darnold, and quarterback Baker Mayfield during the pre-draft process. Recent reports suggest the Browns have narrowed their choices down to Allen and Mayfield. NFL Network’s Mike Mayock still has a ‘gut feeling’ the Browns will select Darnold.

According to Vacchiano, the Giants are sold on Darnold as their No. 1 quarterback, they are not very high on two of the other projected top four quarterbacks, and there is one darkhorse candidate at quarterback to be selected at No. 2 overall.

Finding a loophole around the Ed Sheeran concert scheduled for Saturday, which was supposed to have the Lions starting the season on the road, is a blessing. Then you have to realize the game is against the Jets, one of the most-beatable opponents on the entire schedule. There’s plenty of value in gaining early momentum and a win in prime time can provide that.

The travel this season was always going to be a bear. After a west-coast trip to Oakland in the preseason, the Lions will head back to the Bay Area in Week 2 to face San Francisco. That’s a good, young team with a quarterback who hasn’t lost in seven starts. But it will probably be better to catch the 49ers early in the year, before the chemistry fully develops between Jimmy Garoppolo and his offensive weapons.

As for the home tilt against New England, no matter where you put it on the schedule it was going to be tough. A hyped home crowd for prime time certainly doesn’t hurt Detroit’s chances.

Former coach Jim Caldwell always preached “be an indoor team with an outdoor mentality.” The Lions will need that mental fortitude this December when they play not one, but a pair of games at two of the league’s more challenging cold-weather venues.seahawks_191

Aaron Donald not expected at Rams workouts

I do believe there is another frontier for me beyond television, Aikman said.

With FOX televising the draft this year, Aikman will help cover it. As part of his preparation, he attend the Pro Day workouts conducted by USC quarterback Sam Darnold and UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen. This helped underscore Aikman’s pre-existing interest in someday running an NFL team.

Aikman joined FOX immediately after retiring, quickly becoming a member of the network’s top broadcasting team. The fact that he has stayed there for so long (even after FOX hired, to his dismay, Skip Bayless) shows how much Aikman loves what he’s doing. Still, if he’s thinking about moving on to bigger and better things, a schedule that will now include two games per week in most weeks of the NFL season may cause him to start asking himself, Why am I doing this to myself?

Taywan Taylor Womens Jersey That question becomes more likely if Aikman already is thinking about something else he can potentially do to himself: Tie his name and reputation to the success or failure of an NFL team, giving up a spot he could hold Womens Reggie Ragland Jersey for another 20 years or longer for a gig that necessarily becomes a year-to-year proposition from the first day he walks through the door.

According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, the Patriots are hosting UCLA left tackle Kolton Miller today on a pre-draft visit.

I trust the people I’m working with. More importantly, I trust myself in this process. I trust how I feel. Progress is my guiding light. If I’m making progress, I know that’s important. There is a plan in place and I’ll keep trusting it.

It could prove expensive, though, for the Cardinals.

Keim regrets passing on Russell Wilson, who the Seahawks took in the third round in 2012.

I think about the things that I’ve done wrong more so than I think about the things that have gone well, Keim said. To me, when you’re a competitor, that’s how you grow and get better in this business, is to be critical of yourself.

White Sox: OF Ryan Cordell, acquired from Milwaukee last season for RHP Anthony Swarzak, fractured his right clavicle during a minor league game and will miss at least eight weeks.

The Dolphins donated $100,000 to the community following the shooting and held a clinic at the school in March. Members of the Dolphins coaching staff also donated $17,500 to Feis’ family and Dolphins players visited with survivors of the shooting in the hospital.

All of the picks will be announced at the Dolphins’ practice facility in Davie, Florida and will fall in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh rounds.

Alabama gets commitment from ESPN Junior 300 prospect Shane Lee

Alabama landed Maryland linebacker Shane Lee on Tuesday, the No. 33-ranked prospect in the 2019 class. Lee is the seventh ESPN Junior 300 commitment for the Crimson Tide and the third in the month of April.

Lee, a 6-foot, 253-pound linebacker from Baltimore, is the No. 2-ranked inside linebacker in the class. He gives Alabama four top-100 commitments. He is also the highest-ranked commitment in the class as it stands now, two spots ahead of offensive lineman Pierce Quick.

The fast start in this class is reverting to the norm after Alabama’s 2018 class was ranked No. 25, with only three total commitments this time last year.

The Tide also had a slow finish to the early signing period at the end of December but closed strong with the February signing day, finishing with the No. 6 class.

Defenses help from the weak side as a rule, and so E’Twaun Moore – who was fantastic on defense in Game 1 — sloughs off McCollum here. New Orleans will be ready for this.

That only puts more pressure on Portland to get creative and put those guys in motion as cutters and screeners

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh hired McElwain in February to coach a group of Wolverines wide receivers who struggled to produce big numbers during the 2017 season. The former Florida and Colorado State head coach said he’s not quite sure how he landed in Ann Arbor but sees his new job in the Big Ten as a chance to observe how someone else steers the ship.

“I don’t know if he got the wrong number and I answered,” McElwain said Monday night, speaking to local reporters for the first time since taking the job. “No, I don’t really know how it came about, but we got a phone call and I was obviously very excited to come and, if nothing else, get an opportunity to stand in the background and see how something is operated.”

McElwain got a firsthand look at his new players this past September, when Michigan beat his Gators 33-17 in the season opener. McElwain, who was fired from the Florida job less than two months later, said he knew plenty about rising sophomores Tarik Black and Donovan Peoples-Jones from his former team’s preparation to stop them last summer.

Michigan’s young receiver group hauled in only three receiving touchdowns — six came from other position groups — during the 2017 season. McElwain said the group has work to do, but he has seen promise in spring practice.jets_058
