Aaron Rodgers says smoking hand gesture was tribute to Jay Cutler

If you have watched the Green Bay Packers in their no-huddle offense at all over the past two seasons, you may have noticed Aaron Rodgers making a smoking gesture with one of his hand signals. It obviously indicates some sort of play call or formation change, but Rodgers wants you to believe he did it on Sunday just for Jay Cutler. Rodgers is obviously aware of the hilarious ...

Brutal ending to a once-promising season will haunt A's

Of all the brutal moments the A’s suffered through after the All-Star break — and there were plenty of them as they stumbled through a 29-38 record in the second half — the final gasps of the 2014 season were the cruelest. Of that, there is little debate. The A’s owned most of their AL wild-card game against the Royals. This was their game to win, their ticket to the ALDS...

Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno says he’s about four weeks away from returning

If Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is being honest, he won’t be back after the bye week for a game against Green Bay. And he might be out a couple of games after that. Moreno, who suffered a dislocated elbow in Week 2, told the Palm Beach Post today that he’s still about four weeks away from returning. “I probably got like four more weeks,” Moreno said. “About...

'We missed it': Edmonton Oilers GM admits NHL team botched contract with Vladimir Tkachev

The ink didn’t even have time to dry on the entry level contract that Vladimir Tkachev had signed with the Edmonton Oilers before it was tossed out by the National Hockey League. The undrafted, undersized winger, who did nothing but turn heads at Oilers training camp, cannot sign with Edmonton or, for that matter, any NHL team, because he did not play a full season in North America...

'C' decision looming for Ottawa Senators

The clock is ticking on the Senators' captaincy debate. By this time next week, the Senators will be on the ice in Nashville preparing for their first game of the regular season against the Predators next Thursday at the Bridgestone Arena.

Thunder Mitch McGary brings infectious enthusiasm

Kevin Durant takes a lot of shots. And he tends to make a lot of them. During games. During practice. After practice. On his own time. The four-time scoring champ has spent a lot of hours refining a shooting stroke that’s ascended to a level few humans have ever reached. So it’s no surprise that, when he returned to Oklahoma City this past weekend, Durant made his way to the...

Bob Gainey joins Blues as consultant

Ken Hitchcock will have a Hockey Hall of Famer as a sounding board this season. In a move that the Blues are keeping semi-quiet — in fact, they may not even make a public announcement — Bob Gainey has been added to the organization as a consultant.

Bucs QB situation will have to play out

When it comes to judging his quarterbacks, Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith doesn’t concern himself too much with what they’ve done lately. He’s more concerned with what they do late. “You judge quarterbacks on what they do late (in games),’’ Smith said this week. That being the criteria, it’s no wonder Smith has hesitated to name a starter after Mike Glennon replaced...

David West knows the end is near, but keeps working for the Pacers

In their first practice Tuesday, the Indiana Pacers ran a series of one-man, full-court fast breaks. It's the cruelty of training camp, commanded to sprint near the end of the early afternoon session, already after an hour or so of depositing sweat on the Bankers Life Fieldhouse hardwood. However, the exercise serves a function. "Get your summer legs out of you!" coach...

Horford is fine remaining at center

There was an interesting tidbit from my interview with Al Horford Tuesday after the Hawks opened training camp on the campus of the University of Georgia. As a final question, Horford was asked – one more time – about playing center another season as he returns from a torn pectoral muscle. The 6-foot-10 Horford has played the position all seven seasons in the NBA although many...

How the 2014 Nationals differ from the 2012 Nationals

When the Nationals prepared to face the Cardinals in the 2012 NLDS, they tried to downplay the significance of their lack of October experience vs. their highly decorated counterparts from St. Louis. By the time that series ended in heartbreaking fashion, more than a few players acknowledged what so many suspected: Experience does count in the postseason. Which should make the 2014...

Wizards see bright spots in Nene's summer routine

Unlike an offseason ago, when Nene did virtually nothing but rest, he did a 180-degree turn and played for Brazil's national team and the result is coming into camp in top condition. More importantly for the Wizards, he's without injury entering their second day of training camp at Verizon Center on Wednesday. Nene is noticeably more trim and has a significantly better supporting...

Redskins might find that neither Robert Griffin III nor Kirk Cousins is the answer

While Kirk Cousins refocuses on trying to complete passes to teammates instead of opponents, there’s a lot to consider in the Washington Redskins’ quarterback debate. Robert Griffin III or Cousins was expected to emerge with the long-term job. But after Griffin suffered yet another serious injury and Cousins took a step backward recently, another choice may be correct: none of...

Raiders provide no attractive bait for Jon Gruden

Jon Gruden's name stays in contention for every NFL head-coach opening, and each time, he remains at ESPN instead. If he can turn up his nose at all those over the last five years, he sure can do the same for the latest opening — the Oakland Raiders. Yup, those Raiders — the team that ran him off 12 years ago; owned by the son of the man who ran him off. It's the team...
