It’s going to be hard for me to sleep tonight, the Suns’ Devon Booker said.
Yeah, I think it’s rare, Reich said. I mean, I think those players are rare, and I think it’s rare in Carson’s standpoint, and obviously as confident that I feel like that’s no fluke and that there’s further to go down that path to go for him and that he’s going to make it all the way to the end of that path, as confident as I am of that, you’ve still got to go out and prove it every day.
The Redskins pushed above .500 at 3-2 following a 26-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. They jumped out to a 17-0 advantage and had to rally to pull out the victory.
There’s no reason to assume that a football reporter doesn’t understand routes, or that knowing about routes is dependent upon that reporter being a man or a woman. This is just another example of the sexism in sports that women face daily.
Rodrigue issued a statement to the Charlotte Observer:
This afternoon, I did my job as an NFL beat writer and asked Cam Newton a question about one of his receivers. I was dismayed by his response, which not only belittled me but countless other women before me and beside me who work in similar jobs.
Cam made a mistake. From my understanding there was a conversation, Rivera said. And I would like to talk about the Detroit Lions who we play Sunday.
Here’s a great example of a third down play. It’s cover zero, so everyone is pressing. The Eagles block it up and the center, Jason Kelce, takes two. Wentz avoids the rush, steps up and flings this ball deep to Nelson Agholor, who’s improved by leaps and bounds. Watch how he finishes this play. He didn’t do this last season.
