Nate Davis USA TODAY Published 8:50 PM EDT Apr 27, 2019 Time for my least favorite aspect of NFL draft season — the reactionary, postmortem grades NFL readership seems to demand the minute after Mr. Irrelevant has been announced. PSA — this is a largely pointless drill, and a legitimate report card can't fairly be issued until 2022. But I'll play along and submit my annual, way-too-early, impromptu evaluations before all of these players have even set foot onto a pro practice field. Please note, I strive to assess each club's class holistically, assessing the players on merit and the associated costs of trades past and present that shape each group. Onward ...

Nfl highlights week 1
Henry McKenna For The Win Published 9:42 AM EDT Apr 19, 2019 The anticipation for the NFL season is building. A look at the calendar released this week has definitely injected the NFL again into the national conversation. And it will be interesting to see how our perception of this calendar will evolve. Right now, the Washington Redskins matchup against the New York Giants in Week 16 looks like a total snoozer. But what if that game features Dwayne Haskins and Drew Lock battling for a spot in the playoffs? The NFL is so unpredictable, and that's what makes it great. Working off what we know about teams from last season and this offseason, here's a week-by-week look at the NFL season, ranking those weeks in order of worst to first.

DERRY manager Damian McErlain has described Antrim as the “unluckiest team” in Division Four this year. McErlain highlighted their one-point victory over the Saffrons at Corrigan Park on the first day of the NFL season as a key moment in Derry’s impressive ascent to Division Three. A well-worked 70th minute point from Slaughtneil’s Padraig Cassidy saw Derry squeeze past Antrim in a game where the hosts were desperately unlucky not to get a share of the spoils. Derry embarked on an unbeaten run in Division Four that culminated in a four-point win over Leitrim in last weekend’s League decider. Antrim, however, suffered another setback away to Wexford (1-10 to 0-9) when they could easily have got something out of the game, and there was more misfortune the following week against Leitrim when they lost by a point. In all, Antrim suffered three one-point defeats in a campaign they were expected to push for promotion but lost sight of runaway opponents Derry and … [Read more...] about Antrim were the unluckiest team in Division Four: Derry boss Damian McErlain
James Briggs and Ryan Martin Indianapolis Star Published 10:02 AM EDT Mar 18, 2019 An elderly man in Trenton, Michigan, received a dire letter that warned about the "greatest threats to our public safety in our nation's history." The solution, the letter says, is clear: “Give our law enforcement officers the crime prevention tools they need.” A donation of $10, $15 or $25 would help keep communities like Trenton safe. Donations, however, aren’t directed to the Trenton Police Department — or typically any other police agency, for that matter. Instead, the money makes its way to a new nonprofit based in Indianapolis. At least four police departments in four states have found the letters to be confusing and misleading enough to issue "scam alerts" in their communities. One police chief even reported the operation to a federal postal investigator. “I’m thinking, ‘What the hell is this, using our name and our … [Read more...] about National Police Association says it’s helping police. Chiefs say it’s a scam.
Rival captains Niamh Kelly and Doireann O’Sullivan have both highlighted the significance of tomorrow’s Lidl Ladies National Football League Division 1 clash between Mayo and Cork. The stakes are massive as the counties meet in a competitive fixture for the first time since the 2018 Lidl NFL semi-final, which Mayo won. The Westerners lost the top-flight decider against Dublin at Parnell Park and now face a real battle to make the last four this time. They’re on six points in the table – three behind Cork, who can seal passage to the knockout stages with a victory at Elvery’s MacHale Park (12pm). A large crowd is guaranteed for this game, which is another ‘double-header’ outing for Mayo alongside their male counterparts, who play Monaghan. And travelling skipper O’Sullivan, a 2018 All-Ireland senior club medallist with Mourneabbey, has described it as Cork’s “most important” of the season. In an interview which features … [Read more...] about O’Sullivan: It’s probably the most important game of the league for Cork
