Long before he entered the family business of chasing quarterbacks, before he helped rejuvenate the 49ers and became a Defensive Rookie of the Year contender, Nick Bosa was simply a 7-year-old who didn’t get his way. He wanted to play football. His parents wanted him to wait. And that’s how young Nick ended up sprawled on the kitchen floor of the family’s home in Miami, arms and legs flailing, screaming, “If you don’t let me play, I’m going to die!” “He just freaked out,” his mom, Cheryl, said this week. “What 7-year-old says that?” Cheryl Bosa and her then-husband, John, had good reason to prefer their sons, Joey and Nick, delay their introduction to the sport. John Bosa, a first-round draft choice of the Dolphins in 1987, blew out his knees and lasted only three years in the NFL. He knew firsthand the game’s physical risks, so he tried to keep his boys away from contact as long as possible. “Their mom and I … [Read more...] about 49ers’ Nick Bosa follows family footsteps on path to sacking quarterbacks

(CBS Local/CBS Philly)- Congratulations, you have made it through another fantasy football season! If you are in the playoffs and in the hunt for the championship, obviously, the matchups over the next few weeks will be supremely important as you chase that elusive title. On the flip side, maybe your league has a consolation bracket that determines whether or not you will have the top pick if you win it (like mine). Either way, just because the regular season is over, doesn’t mean that the fantasy lineup advice stops. As they have each week through the regular season, the crew from Fantasy Football Today has joined us to give their thoughts on the best and worst matchups of the week. Their start of the week at the quarterback spot won’t surprise you if you’ve been paying attention to this space the last few weeks. New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold is once again the guy to start this week because, again, he faces a weak defense. The Miami Dolphins visit MetLife … [Read more...] about Fantasy Football Start And Sit: Miles Sanders A Top 10 RB Option As Eagles Face Giants
Donald Trump doesn’t really seem to care about much, but he does probably care about football. I mean, I don’t know if he still watches week to week or anything like that. I’m pretty sure he isn’t devouring the latest Barnwell or chilling with his bros (I suspect he doesn’t have bros) on the couch, tossing back O’Doul’s and talking about how, “Jameis Winston needs to get it together out there, stop throwing so many picks, but he seems like a decent enough kid.” But, he played in school, and the idea of owning an NFL team has clearly always appealed to Big Daddy Gutlord. He was the owner of the USFL’s New Jersey Generals, and was instrumental in making the league shift their schedule to fall as a way of forcing the NFL to merge. It did not work and the league fell apart almost immediately. Yet the dream lived on! When the Buffalo Bills’ original team owner Ralph Wilson died in 2012, Trump tried to buy the team, offering … [Read more...] about The Casual Racism of Trump’s Attacks on Kneeling NFL Players
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Hello darkness, our old friend — or is that Eli Manning, a glimpse of light for Eagles fans? The Eagles’ backs are up against the wall and much of it is their own doing. After losing last Sunday in Miami, the Eagles have no room for error if they want to win the NFC East. It begins Monday night at Lincoln Financial Field against the New York Giants. CBS3’s football experts have your weekly breakdown and predictions. That was an unmitigated disaster. The Eagles’ defense picked the wrong time to fall apart and, once again, the offense couldn’t come up with critical plays when needed. Should fans hold onto any hope or did Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins put the final nail in the coffin of this head-scratching season? Sports Director Don Bell: It depends on what you mean by “hope.” The preseason Super Bowl talk is a thing of the past. Those dreams are long gone. But fans can still hope for a playoff appearance. … [Read more...] about Eagles-Giants Week 14 Predictions: Can Birds Keep Faint Playoff Hopes Alive On Monday Night?
SoundCloud built his base, but death crowned Jahseh Onfroy. Friday saw the release of Bad Vibes Forever, the second and final posthumous album from the controversial rapper known as XXXTENTACION.Rapper XXXTentacion attends the BET Hip Hop Awards 2017 at The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater on October 6, 2017 in Miami Beach, Florida. (Photo by Bennett Raglin/Getty Images) ) The seminal work reaffirms X’s beyond-the-grave status as the preeminent figure on the Emo Rap scene while continuing to push the bounds of the genre-less artist. Like Jesus Is King, Kanye West’s recent gospel offering, Vibes doesn’t sound like the prototypical hip hop record because, in no uncertain terms, it isn’t. Instead of radio-friendly, bass-centric instrumentals, X’s melodic crooning is accompanied by plucky acoustic guitars on most of the tracks, though the album’s middle third features enough trap-inspired trunk thumpers to satisfy the thirstiest of beat … [Read more...] about OPINION: Closure For Emo Rap’s Messiah: XXXTENTACION’s Flaws Are Strengths On Final Posthumous Album, ‘Bad Vibes Forever’
