STATEMENT BY COMMISSIONER GOODELL

Jan 13, 2017

STATEMENT BY COMMISSIONER GOODELL

For more than a decade, the San Diego Chargers have worked diligently toward finding a local stadium solution, which all sides agreed was required.  These efforts took on added intensity in the last two years. A year ago, NFL owners granted the Chargers an option to move to Los Angeles.  Rather than immediately exercising that option, the team spent the past year continuing to work on finding a stadium solution in San Diego.

The Chargers worked tirelessly this past year with local officials and community leaders on a ballot initiative that fell short on election day.  That work – and the years of effort that preceded it – reflects our strongly held belief we always should do everything we can to keep a franchise in its community. That’s why we have a deliberate and thoughtful process for making these decisions.

Relocation is painful for teams and communities.  It is especially painful for fans, and the fans in San Diego have given the Chargers strong and loyal support for more than 50 years, which makes it even more disappointing that we could not solve the stadium issue.  As difficult as the news is for Charger fans, I know Dean Spanos and his family did everything they could to try to find a viable solution in San Diego.

ANAHEIM DUCKS SIGN DUSTIN TOKARSKI TO ONE-YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION

 

SAN DIEGO – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed goaltender Dustin Tokarski to a one-year contract extension through the 2017-18 NHL season. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

 

Tokarski, 27 (9/16/89), owns a 10-12-5 record with one shutout, a 2.84 goals-against average (GAA) and .904 save percentage (SV%) in 34 career NHL games with Anaheim, Montreal and Tampa Bay. The 6-0, 204-pound goaltender has also appeared in five career NHL Playoff games, including a 35-save effort in a 3-2 overtime win in Game 3 of the 2014 Eastern Conference Final on May 22, 2014 at the New York Rangers.

 

Acquired from Montreal in exchange for Max Friberg on Jan. 7, 2016, Tokarski has appeared in one game with Anaheim this season, stopping all five shots on Oct. 28 vs. Columbus. He has also posted a 9-6-1 record in 16 games this season with the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

 

Selected by Tampa Bay in the fifth round (122nd overall) of the 2008 NHL Draft, Tokarski has gone 138-99-5 with 18 shutouts, a 2.51 GAA and .910 SV% in 265 career AHL games with Norfolk, Hamilton, Syracuse, St. John’s and San Diego. The 6-0, 205-pound goaltender was an AHL All-Star with Hamilton in 2013-14 and helped lead Norfolk to a Calder Cup Championship in 2012 after compiling a 12-2-0 record with three shutouts, a 1.46 GAA and .944 SV% in 14 AHL playoff games. Tokarski has also won gold with Team Canada at the 2009 World Junior Championship and helped lead Spokane of the Western Hockey League (WHL) to the 2008 Memorial Cup.

SeattleSeahawks 3 vs 9 Los AngelesRams

En el regreso del Futbol Americano profesional de la NFL a Los Angeles despues de 22 años, los Rams lograron vencer a los Seattle Seahawks para obtener su primera victoria de la temporada.
Aún cuando no han podido encontrar la zona de anotación desde que dejaron Saint Louis, la pierna del pateador Greg Zuerlein, les dió su primera unidad en la columna de triunfos, despues de su debut en la bahía, donde fueron bapuleados por los 49ers. Zuerlein anotó tres goles de campo, el mas largo de 47 yardas para superar 9-3 a los del “Pacifico Noroeste”.
       “La semana pasada fuimos avergonzados”, dijo Kenny Britt, receptor abierto, “así que obtener un resultado como este, es bueno para la moral del equipo”.
   En un dia soleado y con altas temperaturas, los aficionados se dieron cita en grandes números: 91,046 los Angelinos que estubieron apollando al “Hijo pródigo” en su regreso a casa.
El partido estubo plagado de castigos, la única ofensiva en este encuentro, se limitó a goles de campo, lo cual dejó a los aficionados con ganas de más, pero no evitó que apoyaran a su equipo, que para marcar la ocación, vistió sus clasico uniforme azul y oro.
   El resultado aún parecía estar en duda en el último minuto, cuando con 57 seg en el reloj, Alec Ogletree, recuperó un balón suelto de Christine Michael en la yd 29 de los Rams, asegurando el triunfo para los locales. En un paratido marcado por la defensa de ambos conjuntos, fue apropiado que la defensiva decidiera el resultado.

Peyton Manning’s Legacy & Cam Newton’s Post-Game Reaction Highlighted on “INSIDE THE NFL” Season Finale

Feb 10, 2016

“INSIDE THE NFL” SEASON FINALE HIGHLIGHTED BY PEYTON MANNING’S LEGACY & CAM NEWTON POST-GAME REACTION

 

Plus, Exclusive Quarterbacks & Coaches In-Field Audio

 

Premieres Tonight, Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME®

 

NEW YORK (Feb. 9, 2016) — “INSIDE THE NFL” Season Finale premieres tonight, Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME. Host Adam Schein is joined by Super Bowl XXI MVP and N.Y. Giants Legend Phil Simms, four-time Pro Bowler Boomer Esiason, Hall of Famer Michael Irvin and N.Y. Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall in-studio to discuss what went down on Super Bowl Sunday.

 

Tonight’s episode features extensive SUPER BOWL 50 analysis, post-game coverage, a behind-the-scenes report by Marshall and discussions of whether or not SUPER BOWL 50 was “the Sheriff’s last rodeo.”

 

Plus, exclusive NFL Films highlights, including a special feature on Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s post-game celebration, in-field audio from Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and Broncos linebacker and SUPER BOWL 50 MVP Von Miller.

 

Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak and Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera are also wired for sound.

 

“INSIDE THE NFL” covers every game, every week, with trademark highlights from NFL Films, special in-depth features and spirited debate on the hottest topics in the NFL. The show is produced by CBS Sports and NFL Films and airs every Tuesday during the NFL season through Feb. 9, 2016. The executive producers are Sean McManus, Chairman, CBS Sports and Ross Ketover and Pat Kelleher of NFL Films. Pete Radovich Jr., the Emmy Award-winning Creative Director for CBS Sports, serves as coordinating producer.

 

Following are excerpts from this week’s episode:

 

On Cam Newton Not Diving on the football …

Adam Schein – “The fumble. He said today, he didn’t jump on the ball and I quote, ‘[He] didn’t want to contort his leg.’ He looked like he gave up on that play. That to me is a lasting image for Cam Newton and his MVP season.”

 

Brandon Marshall – “We have to understand there are two games in this business. There’s football and then, there’s politics. So the quote that you just read, that’s all politics. That’s not what he wants to say. That’s not what he means. That’s all politics.”

 

Phil Simms – “It’s different. It’s how you’re coached.  What your role on the team is.  I played for a coach, for a couple coaches, if I wouldn’t dive on that football they would have taken me out of the game… There were a couple of fumbles sometime in my career where I said, ‘Gosh, did I show enough courage going after that ball?’… A lot of it has to do with your team, your coach.  I do understand it a little bit.  But he has to understand the situation and it truly was the game.”

 

Boomer Esiason – “There’s a flinch and a hesitation and him backing away… We may not be as valuable as Cam Newton is … [but] you have to do it. It is the Super Bowl. You are asking your teammates out there. Thomas Davis is running around with a broken arm out there. I’m sorry, you have to go after the football.  So that is not a good look for him… [But] I liked him on the sidelines.  I liked how he was trying to get his team up. That’s the Cam Newton that I love. That’s the Cam Newton that I wished I would’ve seen in the post-game press conference.  That’s not who I saw.  I can easily root for the guy on the sideline who is doing that.  I can’t root for the guy that I saw in the post-game press conference. ”

 

Michael Irvin – “When I look at it a second time, when you slow it down, it looks worse. It looks like he missed the ball twice … and I go back to John Elway and his Super Bowl, when he helicoptered. John Elway put everything on the line for that first down … I‘m not questioning his toughness, I’m questioning why he did that.”

 

Boomer Esiason– “I think Phil is right.  You have to go after that ball for the sheer reason you have another 52 other guys that are laying it on the line.  When you compare that to what it looks like, I’m saying what it looks like, with Thomas Davis playing with a broken arm with 12 screws and a plate in his arm,  you can understand why your teammates, now they’re not going to come out and question him, but they will come out behind the scenes and question him.”

 

 

On the First Half of SUPER BOWL 50…

Phil Simms – “You have to be who you are… You can’t recreate yourself at halftime… Sometimes no matter what you do and what you know, when the other guy is better, you’re going to lose and they couldn’t overcome the physical dominance of the Denver Broncos.”

 

Brandon Marshall – “I wasn’t surprised to see what Denver’s offense put on the field. We all knew that they were going to be limited, but what I was shocked at was to see the Panthers offense; they were non-existent in that first half.”

 

Boomer Esiason – “Greg Knapp, the quarterback coach of the Denver Broncos, sitting there with Peyton Manning… That just goes to show you, just how fragile confidence can be. You have an 18-year vet that’s going to leave a lasting legacy that was trying to get talked up to by his quarterback coach to keep his head in the game and keep his confidence up. “

 

 

On The Panthers’ Performance…

Brandon Marshall – “The Carolina Panthers stopped themselves. And Josh Norman said it best after the game. ‘It’s hard to play two teams.’ Some people thought he was talking about the refs, I personally believe that he was talking about his own team… They imploded… When were they battle tested? When did they really hit adversity? Because when they got in this game in the first quarter, they hit adversity, and they didn’t respond well.”

 

 

On Peyton Manning…

Boomer Esiason – “He played for 18 years. The numbers will stand the test of time. They speak for themselves. A true legacy for me is how he’s affected every quarterback that’s come after him.”

 

On Cam Newton’s reaction to the media after the game…

Brandon Marshall – “When I look at Cam, I see a guy who’s in a lot of pain. This hit him really hard. But, I said it earlier, there’s a game on the field and then, there’s politics… What makes him great is all of those emotions, that passion. But now, that emotion, that passion is hurting him… He has to understand that there’s a game on the field and then, there’s a game with the media.”

 

Continued…

 

“I think this was an opportunity for Cam Newton to be put on a higher pedestal. If he would have stood up there and said, ‘You know what we didn’t play well, I didn’t play well. As a leader of this team, I could have done a better job of getting our team prepared.’ But he didn’t do that. And now he has to deal with the consequences… Now people are going to look at him like, when you lost, you were a sore loser.”

 

Phil Simms – “I see a guy who’s still fighting. He’s a great competitor on the field. Don’t compete like that in the press conference.”

 

Brandon Marshall – “Everything Cam Newton feels is valid… But you cannot win versus the media. You can’t win that battle.”

 

 

On Theory that Defense wins Championships…

Michael Irvin – “I’ve never believed in that because actually, points win championships. I will say, turnover defenses can win championships because that’s what we saw the other day… Peyton Manning only completed 13 passes, so maybe the quarterbacks aren’t as important as we thought.”

Jan 24, 2016

Knicks (22-24, 9-15 visitante)   84 vs 97  (21-23, 16-8 local) Hornets


The Hornets won their previous match against the Orlando Magic, while the Knicks had lost against the Clippers, giving way to a tight match in the first quarter. Knicks were dominating the first quarter, though not by much at a score of 22 to 20.

During the second quarter, Hornets were able to turn it around coming in on top with a score of 45 to 43 just as they entered half time. Hornets continued strong into the third quarter with a great defense, scoring most of their points in the third quarter against the Knicks.

It seemed as if the Knicks had a chance to turn the game around in the last quarter. However, the Hornets scored strong in the third quarter preventing the Knicks from catching up. Jeremy Lin (7) and Kemba Walker (15), scoring 26 points each, led the Charlotte Hornets to a victory over the New York Knicks with a final score of 84 to 97.

Jan 17, 2016

Los Panteras de Carolina Derrotan a los Seahawks y  Avanzan al Juego de Campeonato de la NFC.

Con un estadio completamente de azul y negro el dominio de los Panthers era fuerte de tal manera que antes de los 5 minutes de juego ya iban arriba en el marcador por 14 a O con un acarreo corto de Jonathan Stewart Y una intercepción de L.Kuechly, inmediatamente a la segunda jugada del segundo cuarto el mismo Stewart ase otro acarreo corto para darle asi a los panthers otra anotación más poniendose asi al primer minuto del segundo cuarto 21 a 0 con el gol de campo,faltando 12.37 minutos para que terminara el segundo cuarto su pateador hace el gol de campo de 48 yardas para aumentar el marcador a 24 puntos ,sin que los Halcones Marinos pudieran conseguir uno todavía, con una ofensiva inspirada él y el QB. Newton quien lanza un pase de 19 yardas a su compañero de equipo GREG OLSEN para asi conseguir su tercer pase completo y darle otros 6 puntos al equipo llegando a los 31 con el gol de campo y los Halcones Marinos seguían sin poder conseguir ninguno,teniendo la oportunidad de conseguir 3 puntos los Halcones Marinos fallan un gol de campo solo segundos antes de terminar el medio tiempo.

Super Bowl XLIX (49): New England Patriots VS. Seattle Seahawks

Jan 27, 2015

Two teams. One game. It all comes down to this.

  •  On Sunday, February 1, the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks will meet in Super Bowl XLIX (6:30 PM ET, NBC) at University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona.
  • For the second consecutive season, the game will feature the No. 1 seed in each conference.

Phoenix, Arizona. January 27, 2015.  “There are 32 teams that started and now there are two remaining,” says New England quarterback TOM BRADY. “We’re trying to be the one that finishes off the season the way you want to, the way we wanted to from the start of the year.”

 

Super Bowl XLIX will pit the NFL’s top two teams in point differential during the regular season – New England (+155) and Seattle (+140).

 

“We’re looking forward to the opportunity to play a great team in the Patriots with a great coach and a great quarterback,” says Seattle quarterback RUSSELL WILSON. “We have a lot of respect for them and what they do. We’re just grateful to have the opportunity.”

 

New England advanced to the Super Bowl by defeating Indianapolis 45-7. Seattle defeated Green Bay 28-22 in overtime to earn its second consecutive trip to the Super Bowl. The AFC and NFC Championship Games averaged 46.1 million viewers, topping the 45 million mark for the second consecutive year. The NFC Championship Game between Seattle and Green Bay averaged 49.8 million viewers – the most-watched program since Super Bowl XLVIII – and the AFC Championship Game between New England and Indianapolis averaged 42.1 million viewers.

 

The Seahawks erased a 16-0 deficit and defeated Green Bay 28-22 in overtime of the NFC Championship Game. Wilson threw the game-winning 35-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver JERMAINE KEARSE in overtime to send Seattle back to the Super Bowl. The Seahawks are seeking to become the ninth team to win back-to-back Super Bowls and the first since New England in 2003-04.

 

“It’s the character of the men that we have on our football team,” says Wilson. “The relentless drive to be successful for each other and just be grateful for the opportunity that we have, the gratefulness that we have in our room and for each other is unbelievable. We really care about each other. We work for each other. We want to be the best for a reason.”

 

Running back MARSHAWN LYNCH rushed for 157 yards and a touchdown in the win over Green Bay and his 815 career postseason rushing yards are the most by a Seahawk. Since 2011, Lynch’s 6,039 rushing yards and 55 rushing touchdowns are both the most in the NFL (including the playoffs). Wide receiver DOUG BALDWIN had 106 receiving yards in the NFC Championship Game, his fourth playoff game in a row with either 100+ receiving yards or a touchdown catch. Kearse has now caught a touchdown pass in four consecutive postseason games.

 

Defensively, cornerback RICHARD SHERMAN has an interception in both playoff games this season and his 26 interceptions since entering the NFL in 2011 are the most in the league (including the postseason). Safety KAM CHANCELLOR has an interception in three of his past four playoff games, including a 90-yard interception-return touchdown in the Divisional Playoff victory over Carolina, the longest touchdown in Seattle postseason history.

 

Seattle has won five consecutive playoff games and head coach PETE CARROLL is 7-2 (.778) in the postseason with the Seahawks. Carroll, who guided the Patriots to two playoff berths (1997-98) in his three seasons in New England (1997-99), has led Seattle to the postseason in four of the past five years (2010, 2012-14).

 

“It’s a tremendous accomplishment for the club to be able to get a chance to go back to the Super Bowl,” says Carroll. “It’s extraordinarily fun for us and I hope for everybody else, too. We’re going to do everything we can to go get it done.”

 

Wilson will be the youngest quarterback (26 years, 64 days) to start two Super Bowls and also the first QB to start two Super Bowls in his first three NFL seasons to begin a career. His 36 regular-season wins, six playoff victories and 42 overall wins are all the most by a starting quarterback in his first three NFL seasons to start a career.

 

“Russell and Tom Brady are both great winners,” says Carroll about the two starting quarterbacks in Super Bowl XLIX. “Tom has had a long time to prove that. Russell is at the early stages of proving that to the world. But he’s got a chance to be similar.”

 

The Patriots defeated Indianapolis 45-7 in the AFC Championship Game to advance to the team’s eighth Super Bowl. That is tied with Dallas and Pittsburgh for the most Super Bowl appearances in NFL history.

 

“It’s awesome and an unbelievable feeling to be going back to the Super Bowl,” says Patriots tight end ROB GRONKOWSKI. “I know this team has worked hard all year and we’ve stuck together as a team.”

 

During that contest, running back LE GARRETTE BLOUNT rushed for 148 yards with three touchdowns and Brady threw three touchdown passes to extend his career postseason total to 49, the most in NFL history. This postseason, five different Patriots have caught at least one touchdown pass: wide receiver DANNY AMENDOLA (two), tight end ROB GRONKOWSKI (two), fullback JAMES DEVELIN (one), wide receiver BRANDON LA FELL (one) and tackle NATE SOLDER (one).

 

Defensively, linebacker JAMIE COLLINS and cornerback DARRELLE REVIS each had an interception in the AFC Championship Game. During the regular season, Collins and Revis were tied for the team lead in interceptions (two) with safety DEVIN MC COURTY and cornerback LOGAN RYAN.

 

New England head coach BILL BELICHICK and Brady will make their sixth Super Bowl appearance, the most by any head coach-quarterback tandem in NFL history. Belichick and Pro Football Hall of Famer DON SHULA (six) are the only head coaches in NFL history to lead their teams to six Super Bowls. Brady will start his sixth Super Bowl, the most ever by a quarterback, passing Pro Football Hall of Famer JOHN ELWAY (five).

 

Belichick’s 21 postseason victories are the most by a head coach in NFL history. Brady has won 20 career playoff games, the most ever by a starting quarterback.

 

“You have to have a good team,” says Belichick. “There are all the components of it. One guy can’t win in this league. All one guy can do is do his job. Tom does his job as well as anybody. I’m so thankful that he’s our quarterback. There’s nobody I would rather have. He does everything well. And with a lot of other people doing their jobs, well, then you have a good team.”

 

New England averaged 29.3 points per game in the regular season, the fourth-best mark in the NFL. The Patriots will face a Seattle defense that led the league in points allowed (15.9 per game), total defense (267.1 yards per game) and pass defense (185.6 yards per game). The Seahawks have led the NFL in points allowed in each of the past three regular seasons.

 

“It’s a great challenge,” says Brady about facing the Seahawks. “We’re going to play a great team. That’s why they’re in this game too.”

 

The Patriots and Seahawks have met 16 times with the series being split 8-8. This will mark the first postseason meeting ever between the two clubs. The two teams last met during the 2012 season (October 14) in a game won by the Seahawks 24-23 in Seattle. In that contest, then-rookie quarterback Russell Wilson threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes as the Seahawks erased a 13-point deficit.

 

“To go back to my rookie season, that seems like forever ago,” recalls Wilson. “But back in my rookie season, playing against the Patriots, I truly think that was one of the biggest games for me personally, especially being able to come back against a great team. That was a huge comeback for us. I think that was kind of a momentum starter for us for the past three years. The Patriots are always on, they’re always ready to go, so we’re going to have to play our best football, that’s for sure.”

 

The Patriots had seven players selected to the Pro Bowl: quarterback Brady (10th), wide receiver JULIAN EDELMAN (first), kicker STEPHEN GOSTKOWSKI (third), tight end Gronkowski (third), safety McCourty (second), cornerback Revis (sixth) and special teamerMATTHEW SLATER (fourth).

 

The Seahawks had seven players selected to the Pro Bowl: safety Chancellor (third), running back Lynch (fifth), tackle RUSSELL OKUNG (second), cornerback Sherman (second), safety EARL THOMAS (fourth), linebacker BOBBY WAGNER (first) and quarterback Wilson (third).
