Packers fan’s lawsuit against Bears gets the go-ahead

Packers fan’s lawsuit against Bears gets the go-ahead More Green Bay Packers beat reporter Aaron Nagler says that although Aaron Rodgers may be frustrated in Green Bay, everyone will forget about this episode once the season starts.

Russell Beckman is a Green Bay Packers fan from way back. He’s a Chicago Bears season ticket holder, too. Oil and water. Beckman, a teacher, sued the Bears in U.S. District Court in Chicago because they wouldn’t let him on the sidelines wearing Packers gear during a promotional event with other season ticket holders before a game in 2016. The lawsuit, which a federal judge decided can proceed, might be an annoyance to the Bears, but Beckman said it could have wider-ranging implications. First, the background.

With a mainstay at safety like Patrick Chung, you would have thought the Patriots had it made at the position, but they’ve used three early-round picks trying to upgrade the situation, including eventual Lions starter Tavon Wilson in 2012. Aside from a strong 3-cone time, which you may have noticed is a trend among all positions, it has been a varied group athletically.

Wake Forest’s Jessie Bates or Stanford’s Justin Reid are options in the early rounds, if the team is looking for a versatile player who may be able to take over for Glover Quin in the coming years. With no hard and fast trends, the Lions could really go anywhere, even taking someone like former Ohio State safety and Detroit native Damon Webb.

Nyheim Hines NC State 5-9, 198, 40 time: 4.38 Projection: Fourth Round OVERVIEW Only the unfamiliar were surprised when Hines turned in a blistering 4.38 40-yard dash to lead all running backs at the NFL Scouting Combine. He was a two-sport star in high school who chose NC State in part because his twin sister, Nyah, received a track and field scholarship. Nyheim’s track background was evident as a true freshman, when he produced a combined 1,419 all-purpose yards — 243 rushing, 256 receiving and 920 as a kick returner.

He followed that up by competing in sprint events and earning All-American and All-ACC honors. Hines played mostly the slot receiver position as a sophomore, catching 42 passes Cheap NFL Jerseys USA for 525 yards, but did not reach the end zone. He moved to the backfield as a junior, rushing for 1,113 yards and 12 touchdowns despite a midseason ankle injury, and won the Paul Hornung Award as the nation’s top all-purpose back as well as first-team all-conference honors as a running back. Hines also finished his career with a 24.7-yard Bing Cheap Jerseys average on 88 kickoff returns, and opted to forgo his senior season for the NFL draft.

Don’t cry for the two defensive staff members who were hired by Indianapolis before Josh McDaniels walked away from the Colts’ head coaching job.

A source told Sporting News that defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus and defensive line coach Mike Phair remain bullish on their roles with the franchise no matter who is named the next head coach.

Earlier media reports had linked McDaniels and Eberflus together if the former was going to land a head coaching position. Ballard, though, already had held Eberflus in high regard with the Colts organizationally wanting to resume running a “Tampa-Two” style of defense. Ballard was familiar with that attack during his time scouting for head coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jerry Angelo with the Chicago Bears.

The third staff member recently hired by the Colts, offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo, did have direct ties to McDaniels from when both were with New England. DeGuglielmo, though, also remains wanted by Indianapolis even after McDaniels reneged on taking the HC job.

“We will not abandon them,” Ballard said. “They’re good coaches. They’re good people. They’re good developer of men and that’s what we want.”

New Orleans assistant head coach Dan Campbell and Philadelphia offensive coordinator Frank Reich are considered the two frontrunners for the Indianapolis head-coaching job. NFL Network reported the Colts also have submitted a request to interview Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.

The Colts had announced Tuesday that McDaniels agreed to contract terms, but a written agreement was never finalized. Later that day, McDaniels informed Ballard he was returning to New England as offensive coordinator.

In each of those cases, the opposing coaches were guilty of strategic errors that essentially involved underestimating the capability of Brady and his pals to concoct a game-changing NFL Jerseys Nike comeback. So even if these Patriots are no longer the most impressive or lethal team, they are probably Cheap NFL Jerseys USA the most resilient team in the history of American sport. Nope. Not falling into that trap. The Eagles might lead Sunday’s game, could even dominate, but the Patriots are winning in the end. Patriots 28, Eagles 24.

That, of course, sparked the rumor mill and it wasn’t long before Russini backtracked her original report on Twitter.

“I did not word this carefully enough, ESPN is not reporting or even suggesting this is going to happen. I was watching the show and our insiders responded to the unsubstantiated chatter,” Russini wrote.
