That’s why Minnesota was awarded Super Bowl 52 in 2018, after all.

There will be early challenges, of course. Detroit ranked dead last in the NFL with 1,221 rushing yards as a team last season, meaning running back and interior offensive line likely will be offseason focal points. Key defensive contributors Ziggy Ansah, Tahir Whitehead and Haloti Ngata are set to become unrestricted free agents, with Ansah being a strong franchise tag candidate.

When the NFL considers sites for future Super Bowl locations, many requirements must be met by potential cities, their venues and their accommodations. Stadium quality is among the priorities, which is why all of the next four Super Bowls will be played in new or recently renovated stadiums.

With weather also being a factor when the NFL considers future Super Bowl locations, brand-new and climate-controlled U.S. Bank Stadium was the reason “Bold North” was possible. The league wanted to show off the impressive stadium during America’s most-watch sporting event.

Super Bowl 53 will take place at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, a one-of-a-kind venue and home to the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons.

When he came to his senses a few years later, Kraft went hard after Belichick while he was with the Jets. Calling Kraft under the alias of “Darth Vader,” Parcells drove a hard bargain, demanding compensation Kraft was willing to give. Seven-going-on-eight Super Bowl appearances later, it was the best trade Kraft ever made.

Viewers will also get a kick out of seeing the late, great Stuart Scott and younger versions of Suzy Kolber, Chris Mortensen, Sal Paolantonio and other ESPNers. Speaking of media, ex-Patriots/Giants assistant Charlie Weis notes the “night-and-day” difference between Belichick and Parcells when it comes to dealing with reporters. Belichick, as we know, is horrible. But Parcells played the media like a fiddle in New York, New England and Dallas. They, in turn, shaped his legend.

Early on in the documentary, there’s a revealing moment when Rodgers asks Belichick about his relationship with Parcells. “Friend, mentor, competitor,” murmurs Belichick.

Foles, up first during Monday’s Super Bowl MVP and winning coach press conference, wasn’t about to stir up any controversy.

“I’m not really worried about my future right now,” the QB said. “There will be a time and place to handle all of that. I’m excited for Carson Wentz coming back healthy. I get to work with him everyday. Dude’s a stud. I’m not thinking ahead. I’m living in the moment.”nike-youth-cardinals-019

It looked like he was always giving a 100% when he was on the field.

A lot of this had to do with growing up in Pittsburgh, and watching tapes of the storied Steelers franchise from the 1970s. Witnessing Lynn Swann make that amazing catch in Super Bowl X, again and again in slow motion, I was hooked for life.

Standing only 6 foot, there are also concerns Mayfield is not tall enough to see over the offensive linemen and avoid getting his passes batted down by defensive linemen rushing with their arms outstretched.

They ask about it, they’re going to ask how big my hands are, worried about the ball size but I have games of playing in the rain, playing in the snow,” Mayfield said. If you can grab a ball and throw it, you can grab a ball and throw it. I don’t care how tall you are either, you’re not gonna see over a 6-7 left tackle when you’re throwing, you got to find lanes, you got to know where your guys are. It’s not about the height.

Sure, the Rams will do it. It’s a small tax to pay for the windfall Stan Kroenke’s club will earn by fleeing St. Louis and opening a shiny new stadium in Inglewood, Calif., in the coming years.

I think before we even negotiate anything about whether we sit or whether we stand, should be a negotiation about opening up the doors for Colin Kaepernick and give him an opportunity again, because I feel like through everything that’s been lost, I think all of us are having opportunities to be able to speak to our employers, but to think about the guy who started everything not to be able to have a voice at this moment, it just doesn’t seem very right to me.

Bennett, who said he will continue to sit during the anthem despite Roger Goodell’s request to stand, said he talked to the players at the New York meeting, but believes Kaepernick remaining jobless is a non-starter to effecting change.

I don’t think we can work alongside of [the owners] until we address that issue, Bennett said. I think the issue of Kaepernick is the start to a conversation if they want us to be open to what they want, the dialogue, then that’s something that needs to be on the table right there.

At worst, the 6-foot-2, 258-pounder would go on the second day. But Villante was definitely getting drafted.

And then he wasn’t.

Everything changed, Villante said.

After that, the MacArthur HS product from Wantagh had a few workouts with NFL teams, but his heart wasn’t in it.

Villante had all the numbers, though. He was recruited out of high school by Penn State and Michigan State, but chose to stay home. In one game at Hofstra, he sacked then-Delaware quarterback Joe Flacco 鈥?twice. Flacco is two months removed from leading the Baltimore Ravens to the Super Bowl.

On Thursday, Allan Jones, founder of Check Into Cash, said that he is pulling all commercials for his lending companies during NFL games for the rest of the season.

In other fallout, DirecTV said it will refund subscribers of its NFL Sunday Ticket package if they are opposed to the protests.

An insider tells Pro Football Talk multiple owners have conversed about the possibility, which is highlighted in Article VII of the NFL’s Constitution & Bylaws:

As sides are formed over Goodell’s next contract, there is a palpable awkwardness among the owners. The ice has yet to thaw between Jones and Falcons boss Arthur Blank. Before the Cowboys were thrashed 27-7 in Atlanta on Sunday, Jones and Blank stood on opposite sides of the field without so much as a wave.

That’s rare, Jones said, per USA Today, of the non-meet-and-greet. I’ve had games where I didn’t visit for whatever reasons. But it’s rare.

Boies reportedly sent a letter to the league’s counsel last Wednesday, alleging fellow owners are being misled by Blank, who leads the NFL’s compensation committee in charge of Goodell’s next deal. Jones, once made an ad-hoc member by Blank, is no longer allowed to join the meetings.

In December, Disney agreed to pay $52.4 billion for the bulk of Fox’s assets, leaving sports and news to the remaining Fox company.

Football is in our blood at Fox and we understand that nothing beats the NFL when it comes to television that captures people’s attention, said Peter Rice, president T. J. Leaf Jersey of Twenty-First Century Fox. Our historic relationship with the NFL dates back to the earliest days of Fox, and we couldn’t be more excited to expand our deep and enduring partnership to include prime-time games on Thursday night.

The NFL has been unpredictable, even for a league that sets a high standard for volatility.

Alleged favorites have faltered. Supposed tanking teams have surged. Picking the Super Bowl contenders might be even harder now than it was at the start of the season.

If the regular season has been wild, wait until the offseason. One thing made clear, six weeks into the season, is how many quarterback situations will be in flux heading into next year. This season, 25 teams entered Week 1 with the same No. 1 quarterback with whom they began the 2016 season. The league kept quarterback turnover to a minimum.

Rodgers threw for 288 yards, becoming the first quarterback to eclipse 250 yards since Week 12 of the regular season, and threw no interceptions against a team that ranked fifth with 21. He helped the Packers to a 31-25 win thanks to his three-touchdown effort.

Even without top scorer Collin Sexton, who is sidelined by an abdominal injury, the Tide managed to flummox the Tigers’ defense, led by John Petty’s 27 points on eight 3-pointers.

“We didn’t have a lot of energy, and I’m not really sure why,” Pearl said. “The grind of the season maybe.”

Whatever it was, it wasn’t pretty. A troubling pattern of falling behind early has emerged. Auburn had won four of five previous games in which it trailed by double figures, but not in Tuscaloosa, where it fell to 9-49 all time.

That is how the Eagles win, provided Foles does not force throws, something both he and Keenum do a bit too often. While Keenum has, as Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has noted, gotten away with a few (though Keenum was burned last week), Foles might not be so lucky, especially not against the No. 1 scoring defense in pro football. Minnesota safety Harrison Smith is worthy of Defensive Player of the Year mention. chargers_012

Prior to Leath’s comments, Pearl was asked about his repeated refusal to comment on the allegations levied against his program in the FBI complaint.

No one is covering what a massive mistake that the league and Chargers have made by moving this team to LA, Joe Banner, a former executive for the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns, wrote this week on Twitter.

As the NFL and NFLPA await a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit on the league’s request for a stay of the injunction that is keeping the six-game suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott on hold, Lockhart said the league would have some discretion on Elliott’s playing status if the suspension is reinstated by the appeals court late in a week. 鈥?

This is in addition to the cost to the federal government for the plane, which is $43,000 an hour to operate. Pence’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the protest cost.

But despite Pence’s pricey protest, there hasn’t been much criticism of him from supporters. This is why some Americans argue that Trump-Pence supporters were not primarily moved to board the Trump train for economic reasons, but cultural ones.
