New York Giants bench Eli Manning, start Geno Smith: In a shocking move, Ben McAdoo is benching two-time Super Bowl winner Eli Manning for Geno Smith, likely ending Manning's career in New York. Manning has started 210 consecutive regular-season games for the Giants, a streak that will come to an end after he refused to be the token starter for a series in order to keep the streak going.

NBA Playoff Pickem: Finals Round

I'm unimpressed with both the Warriors' depth - sorry, Otto Porter isn't all that and a bag of chips - and silky soft path to the Finals. Boston, battle-hardened after taking out the reigning Champs, the No. 1 seed and KD & Kyrie, will expose them.

Star-Crossed Nets Bounced from Playoffs in Four Games

The "managing this franchise" line really rubbed me the wrong way. Players play the game on the court, coaches play the game on the whiteboard, executives play the game in the draft war room and trade markets. Everyone plays to their strengths. The Nets were a really fun team pre-KD and Irving, a team going in the right direction, a team building a winning culture the hard way. Now, they have two famously esoteric stars (three if you want to count Harden or Simmons) who have been calling the shots and they've achieved... what, exactly? Certainly not success. How has courting NBA headliners and kowtowing to their personnel demands (DeAndre Jordan, Harden, Blake Griffin) made this team better?

I have not enjoyed the player empowerment era.

Cleveland Browns Sell Their Soul for DeShawn Watson

Couple notes here that I find interesting.

*The ENTIRE contract is guaranteed. This has never happened in the NFL at this scale before. Second place on the guaranteed money list is Mahomes... $141,481,905. Watson is almost 100m clear of that number. Eye-popping stuff.

*The Browns restructured Watson's deal so that he is only making $1m in salary this year. That way, when he serves his suspension, he's only losing out on a minimal amount of money -- games missed to suspension mean that he'd be losing game checks, but those game checks are artificially small now. This was absolutely done intentionally, and is the first time I can recall a team working with a player to deliberately circumvent a fine/fiscal punishment

*I strongly suspect that this was an act of desperation by Cleveland after botching this the first time around -- once Baker demanded a trade and they denied his request, I think they realized they'd forced their own hand and went back to Watson with sacks of guaranteed dollars.

New York Governor Backs New Bills Stadium

I will never understand why taxpayers foot the bill for fancy new football stadiums. Just don't get it, conceptually.

Juwan Howard Takes Swing at Wisconsin Coach After Game

That's two of these sorts of interactions from Howard in the last two to three years, by my hazy count. Completely unacceptable behavior. Zero excuse, either -- I've watched the tape a dozen times and the Wisconsin coach barely touches his wrist when Howard walks by and stiffs the handshake.

And the "I felt threatened" language is laughable. You're a giant of a man, with three or four people standing in front of you who you had to stretch over to throw that punch/slap... what exactly was threatening you??

Steelers Hire Brian Flores as Assistant Coach

Honestly a little shocked he got the gig, and I wonder if he is too. Figured he knew when he filed suit that he was going to get Keap'd. Good for him.

BTW, this almost assuredly means that Watson is getting traded to Pittsburgh, right? Flores and him are almost a package deal, the Steelers need a new QB, Watson remains young and very talented and, well... Let's just say Big Ben remained popular in that city.

Rams Win Super Bowl 0x38

Happy for so many of the Rams players who landed a ring, but perhaps most for Eric Weddle, who came off the couch a month ago after two years of retirement to bolster the Rams defense on the way to the Super Bowl, then ruptured his pec in tonight's game and played all four quarters anyway. What a Herculean effort.
