Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor has spent the offseason revamping the Bengals’ playbook. No one knows exactly what the changes entail, not even Andy Dalton. But the quarterback can’t wait to get started.
The sense I’m getting is there is going to be a lot of change and a lot of learning, which is a good thing, Dalton said, via Geoff Hobson of the team website. I think it’s good to challenge yourself and kind of re-fresh yourself on what you’re doing. When you’re hearing the same thing for seven straight years, it can be mundane and you already know it. Now it’s new and fresh, and I’m looking forward to it.
Like Jeter, Mattingly spent his entire playing career with the Yankees. He was appointed captain by owner George Steinbrenner from 1991-95, a role held by Jeter from 2003-14.
It’s like growing up in the same family with the same parents, Mattingly said. We both came through the system. You know what’s expected. There’s a way to go about your business, and I think that’s what Derek is bringing to the organization.
That said, neither Rapoport nor Garafolo believes Wednesday’s reports represent a ploy by Brady to expedite those talks. In fact, Brady’s public statements on the matter have left no doubt that he intends to return for a 19th NFL season.
While the offseason has brought unprecedented speculation about Tom Brady ‘s future in New England, owner Robert Kraft recently noted that neither side has an issue with the future Hall of Famer’s contract.
If it becomes an issue, Kraft added, we’ll deal with it.
The Patriots might find themselves dealing with the matter sooner than Kraft imagined.
When you look at the locker room and see the guys we have, obviously when Jo [Embiid] gets back, the sky’s the limit, Ilyasova said.
That’s how it felt after Game 1. After the four years of losing. After extending this 17-game win streak that has the entire city buzzing. It has been a hell of a year in Philadelphia already, with the Eagles winning the Super Bowl and Villanova coasting to its second NCAA title in three years. It’s also too soon to get ahead of the process for these young Sixers.
