  • Plenty of people were ready to see Mike McCarthy fired after Packers' loss to Seahawks

    By nearly all accounts, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy had a brutal game on Thursday against the Seattle Seahawks. Whether it was failing to mount a challenge against Tyler Lockett’s “catch,” giving budding star Aaron Jones only six touches in the second half, some adventurous timeout management or the decision to punt 4th and 2 on Green Bay’s final possession, McCarthy’s detractors had plenty to point to as the Packers lost 27-24 and fell to 4-5-1.

    It was, of course, Veteran’s Day weekend and NFL teams found various ways to commemorate. The 49ers had a line of men and women who are serving or have served our country in the armed forces. That was cool enough, but Kittle made sure that he honored each and every one of them with a handshake.

    RUSH: Speaking of Mexico City and all that, have you seen the NFL move? There was a big Monday night game in Mexico City. The Chiefs and the Rams. And, folks, this is the strangest thing. The NFL has known for a year — well, no. The schedule came out in the spring, but before the schedule comes out, they scheduled this game. I mean, it has to be almost a year, certainly nine months the National Football League has known that they were going to play a game at Estadio Azteca, Aztec stadium, Mexico City. They’ve known this for...

    A man arrested for a drunk driving crash in New Jersey last weekend gave officers a bonkers excuse for his drunkenness and the accident that followed: the continuing suckage of the New York Jets. Christopher Greyshock, a 57-year-old man from West Milford, New Jersey, was arrested after rear-ending a car and injuring two people on Sunday, a short time after the Jets had been soundly thwacked by the Buffalo Bills 41-10. The North Jersey Record reported that police were called to the scene of an accident that had taken place at 5:15 p.m., and two people were being treated by...

    NFL cancels Mexico City trip, moves Chiefs-Rams game to Los Angeles The NFL has decided to move Monday's game between the Chiefs and Rams from Mexico City to Los Angeles because of poor field conditions at Estadio Azteca, it was announced Tuesday. Players had strongly considered not playing if the NFL had opted to keep the game in Mexico City, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter earlier Tuesday. The issue is that soccer games and concerts have left the field inside Estadio Azteca a mess. "It's not fair to risk our health," a prominent player told Schefter on Tuesday. . ....

    New York Post ^ | 11/2/2018 | Billy Becerra and Gabrielle Fonrouge
    A former NFL player-turned-high school health teacher and assistant football coach was arrested Friday for assaulting the same student twice — and promptly resigned, police said. Sheddrick Wilson, 44, who played wide receiver at LSU and for the Houston Oilers, allegedly assaulted the 16-year-old at Archbishop Stepinac HS during two separate occasions, court records show. Sometime in January or February 2017 while Wilson was teaching health class at the prestigious White Plains school, he ordered the victim, known only as “JM” in court papers, to the front of the classroom and asked him to remove his glasses, records show. Wilson...

    Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has endured recent speculation about his job security, and while he's not expected to return to the team for next season, his job isn't in jeopardy for this season, according to a report Sunday from Cbssports.com's Jason La Canfora. The Ravens entered their Week 10 bye in third place in the AFC North with a 4-5 record, with their next game one week from Sunday at home against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals defeated the Ravens, 34-23, in September to improve to 2-0 this season.

    When you're a professional in the sports business, you've got to develop some thick skin. Competition is the name of the game, and you learn to rise above the haters. But there's something about being dunked on by a kid that you just can't recover from. Jerry Jones—the protest-busting geriatric oil baron who owns the Dallas Cowboys—is taking L after L, with his team posting a brutal 3-5 record so far this season, telegraphing plays, and even Cowboys legend Troy Aikman is calling for a "complete overhaul." And then he watched as the discarded Dez Bryant signed with a legitimate...

    The Redskins are having one of the best seasons in recent history.Despite their performance this season, however, there is one thing that will never change: The controversy over the Redskins’ logo and name.The logo of the Redskins has weathered many seasons of controversy. But there have been renewed calls for the logo to get the politically correct tomahawk in recent years. Some of the biggest names in politics have come out against the symbol of a proud, stoic-looking Native American and his feathers.In 2015, Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid proclaimed in a speech from the Senate floor, “The Redskins name...

    For decades, Paul Zimmerman was Sports Illustrated’s “Dr. Z,” the analytical and opinionated football guru who penned erudite and insightful columns, picked games, wrote mock drafts, knew everybody and was known by everybody. But before Zimmerman worked his word magic for SI, he did so for The Post from 1966-1979 — covering the Jets, writing general sports columns with an emphasis on the NFL and becoming an early pioneer of in-depth analysis using the then-new technology of videotape. He even wrote a wine column.

    As soon as I learned that Oprah Winfrey would be interviewing Michelle Obama at the Chicago stop of Obama’s “Becoming” book tour, I pre-declared my ticket the best $166 (plus fees) I ever spent. My friends and I bought tickets months ago, before we knew the Oprah angle, which was just announced Tuesday. Various celebrities — Tracee Ellis Ross, Reese Witherspoon, Valerie Jarrett — will interview the former first lady in different cities along the tour. We just happen to live in the greatest city on Earth, which means Obama is not only kicking off her book tour here, she’s...
