What they saw looked a lot like their recent past — a field goal in the final seconds to send the game into overtime, a kick that went through but was nullified by a pre-snap timeout, then a kick that was blocked to seal the loss.
Last season the Chargers started 1-4 — to the Chiefs by six in overtime after leading by 17 in the fourth quarter; to the Colts by four on a 63-yard touchdown pass with 1:28 left; to the Saints by one on a touchdown with 1:57 left; and to the Raiders when they bobbled the snap on a game-tying field goal with two minutes left.
Among the losses the rest of the season were a four-interception fourth quarter by Philip Rivers in Miami; another late collapse to the Raiders; and the Browns’ only win, sealed by, of course, a missed Chargers field goal at the final gun.
As long as he doesn’t make himself out to be a martyr, and act like a drama queen, Dipp might even be able to make some lemonade out of last night’s lemon. Hell, if I’m ESPN, I give him another shot to prove himself on “MNF.” You know some sports fans will tune in just to watch that.
The Dipp disaster underlines once again the value of smart, experienced sideline reporters such as ESPN’s Lisa Salters, NBC’s Michele Tafoya, Fox’s Erin Andrews and CBS’ Tracy Wolfson.
As the regular “MNF” sideline reporter, Salters will work the rest of the games this season. Dipp only appeared on Broncos-Chargers with Beth Mowins and Rex Ryan because Salters was working the sidelines for the earlier Vikings-Saints telecast.
Said an ESPN source: “Sergio is a young guy with hopefully a bright future ahead. He just had a tough night. He would not have been on the game if he wasn’t well regarded at our place.”
Place a single dollar on the Jets to win the Super Bowl this season and you’d win $1,000 if they were actually able to pull it off.
You’re better off keeping that dollar. Since the Jets moved to 1000-1 odds, ESPN reported the Westgate Casino in Las Vegas has taken just six bets on the Jets despite the giant odds.
To say the Jets are facing long odds this season would be a massive understatement. Unprecedented is more like it. The Browns and 49ers faced the longest odds last season at just 200-1. The Bills are 200-1 odds this year, but still a far cry from the Jets. The Bills are an eight-point favorite to beat the Jets on Sunday in the season opener.
“[I’ve] never seen any NFL team this high before any games are played,” Ed Salmons, a 30-year veteran Las Vegas oddsmaker and assistant manager at the Westgate, told ESPN. “I think the Jets will probably be the lowest team we’ve ever power-rated.”
Team captains are selected through a team vote and Bortles’ omission may say a lot about what his teammates think of his ability to lead the club. Bortles will be Jacksonville’s Week 1 starter against the Texans, but will likely have a short leash this season.
He nearly lost his starting job to veteran backup Chad Henne during the preseason, but Jaguars coach Doug Marrone stuck with Bortles despite his struggles. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft has 51 interceptions in his first three seasons and the Jags have not won more than five games during that stretch. Bortles has also lost 12 fumbles, six of them coming last season when Bortles threw for 3,905 yards with 23 touchdowns and 16 picks in a 3-13 campaign.
The Bucs won’t be playing this week because of Hurricane Irma, and the first-week bye allows defensive end Jacquies Smith more time to recover from his torn ACL. Smith was just activated to the 53-man roster after spending all of training camp on the active/PUP list. He has just begun practicing this week, though, participating in some drills, so it might be a bit before he’s ready to play.
Coach Anthony Lynn said the health of his team has improved since last season, with all starters except for middle linebacker Denzel Perryman (ankle) scheduled to start the season opener against the Broncos. Two receivers to keep an eye on this week are Tyrell Williams (groin) and Dontrelle Inman (sports hernia). Both were held out of the last preseason game against the Rams. Lynn said Inman is day-to-day as he works his way back from offseason surgery.
“It sucks that in the country that we live in now, sometimes you get profiled for the color of your skin,” Bennett said in a news conference. “It’s a tough situation for me. Do I think every police officer is bad? No, I don’t believe that. Do I believe there’s some people out there that judge people on the color of their skin? I do believe that.”
Yeah, it will toughen you. I feel like the sport is becoming flag football. The game is supposed to be physical. You got the helmet, shoulder pads on to protect yourself. I’m trying to kill you every time.
Let’s talk about your opponents: Of the players you faced last year, who’s the most challenging, competitive guy you saw?
“Michigan is very high up in tradition and their quarterbacks succeed in the NFL,” he said as a high schooler. “It is a big honor for me just to get notification from them.”
Even if you aren’t a regular college football fan, you’ll remember that Henne was the quarterback for the No. 5 ranked Wolverines that lost to Appalachian State in that wild 2007 CFB season.
Henne’s star faded from those dizzying days as hyped recruit to a brief stint as the Dolphins’ Tom Brady. Earlier in the offseason, back when Blake Bortles was still considered a starting QB, Henne got some praise as a perfectly mediocre backup. He was 10th on SI’s rankings for the backup QBs.
Joyner: Tevin Coleman, RB, Falcons. New offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian calls a run-heavy offense, as his 2013 Washington Huskies team set program records for carries and rushing yards. Coleman will get more than enough work to easily best his mid-tier RB4 draft status.
Schatz: Mark Ingram, RB, Saints. Sorry, I’m not counting on a 32-year-old Adrian Peterson to take away a ton of Ingram’s carries all year long.
Seifert: Mike Gillislee, RB, Patriots. Rest assured, fantasy owners. Even as so many are backing off the hype of what once seemed a no-brainer, I still think he’ll get a big portion of the Patriots’ point opportunities. Hang in there, and we’ll get through this together.
Dylan Wagner, the superfan who helped find Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl jerseys, is being rewarded with front row seats to the Patriots’ season opener.
A 19-year-old sports memorabilia collector who helped find Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl jerseys is getting quite the big reward.
Wagner came to Gillette Stadium early Thursday morning for the release of the new Robert Kraft shoe at the Patriots pro shop and was instantly recognized.
“I think it’s great for the sport. I like that it’s not the normal jersey, that its a different jersey entirely. I like that people can show their individualism. I went with Ro. It’s supposed to be a nickname going on the jersey and that’s my actual nickname. Some people came up with some other stuff, but I didn’t know what else to put on there.
I can see some people having an issue with this because the Yankees have never changed uniforms, but everyone is doing it. I believe in tradition, too, but because it’s a different jersey, I’m excited to see what other people do. It’s supposed to be fun and I hope it is. I like the jersey, too. It looks cool. It’s a little different. I know some people are going to have issues, but it’s just for fun.”
Dylan Wagner, 19, lives in Seattle, but he’s an avid jersey collector and that hobby helped investigators track down the missing Brady jerseys earlier this year, as the WBZ I-Team first reported.
Mexican authorities searched the property of tabloid journalist Martin Mauricio Ortega, where they found the jersey, along with a Brady jersey that disappeared after the 2015 Super Bowl. A Denver Broncos helmet also was found.
