Patriots DC Matt Patricia takes responsibility for defense's failure

perth_map

This Patriots defense has not been great all year long, so it shouldn't be that big of a surprise that they were shredded as heavily as they were. By all accounts, the Lions' new coach indeed operates in his own way. That's exactly what Lions general manager Bob Quinn said he was looking for when he began the search for his next coach earlier this month - Someone who can take a good team and make it great.

Kansas City Chiefs players make it clear they'll miss Alex Smith

perth_map

You have to wonder whether Smith's desire to go to a Super Bowl-ready (or at least playoff-ready) team was a factor in the Chiefs' decision to not send him to Cleveland. The Browns possess the top overall selection in a quarterback-rich National Football League draft that includes top prospects such as USC's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Wyoming's Josh Allen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield.

Carson Wentz talks about his injury

perth_map

The rehab - it's the same type of progression and everything. Like I told him, 'Hey, you've got next year.' But right now, he's been a great teammate, talking to us, communicating. I'm feeling confident with it and I said it in the video I posted right after the injury. "I think we have a culture and just a brotherhood that I think we're wired to be successful". Read More »

Tottenham player ratings in 1-1 FA Cup draw at Newport

perth_map

Newport, 72 league places below Spurs , made life extremely uncomfortable for their guests from the off. Mauricio Pochettino could have pointed to a poor playing surface at Newport's Rodney Parade ground and a rumbustious atmosphere as reasons his players looked so unnerved from the moment the whistle went - but that would ignore the simple fact that County manager Michael Flynn's team had a brilliant game plan.

Amla makes lone stand as South Africa close in on India total

perth_map

Both teams have the chance to take control of the game on day three: Every precious run India makes on such a tough wicket for batsmen magnifies South Africa's already uphill task of batting last. Since 1996, this is only the 2nd Test match where spinners didn't even bowl a ball in the first two innings of a Test. Rabada‚ who soaked up the pressure by playing sensible cricket and frustrated the Indian bowlers by leaving risky balls and punishing the bad ones‚ was removed agonisingly close to ... Read More »

San Francisco Giants Trade for Andrew McCutchen

perth_map

The 2013 #Nl Mvp has had an interesting last few seasons. Pittsburgh doesn't get anything from playing guys like Freese or Cervelli next year. Overall not bad, but low for McCutchen Standards. Apparently the Pittsburgh Pirates' plan for future success does not include keeping one of the franchise's greatest stars in black and gold.
