He was asked on The Ringer's "The Chris Vernon Show" about what went wrong during his stint with the Knicks. "I don't think it was one thing. I think it was a lot of things. I'm not here to blame anybody or it's anybody's fault," Noah said. "It just didn't work out. I could look back on it and say I thought I was ready for New York City, and I wasn't. And it's something that I've got to live with." Noah…

No winning season or playoffs, only disappointment for Lions

NFL JERSEYS
The Detroit Lions trudged off the field late Sunday afternoon, some faster than others, all pretty quickly. There wasn’t much else to do after a loss that effectively ended their season with two games remaining. A chance at the playoffs: extinguished. A third consecutive winning season, something the franchise hadn't accomplished since the mid-1990s: no longer possible. Another year ending in disappointment after a 14-13 loss to the Buffalo Bills. “It sucks. It just sucks knowing that we’re not going to the playoffs,” safety Glover Quin said. “That’s what everybody plays the game for, nfl nike jerseys for cheap to have an opportunity to get in the tournament, you know.

Clunker is proof Giants’ offense might not be fixed after all

NFL JERSEYS
At least that is obvious after watching them stumble their way through Sunday's 17-0 loss in the steady rain to the Tennessee Titans. It was the second time the Giants were shut out in the span of less than a year. They were also blanked last December in Arizona. It was the seventh time Manning was shut out as a starting quarterback, tying him with his father Archie for fifth-most all-time, according to ESPN Stats & Information.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china "Didn't do anything well enough to expect to win," coach Pat Shurmur said. "Didn't make plays. Didn't run the ball. Didn't stay on the field on offense. We had penalties. So, we didn't play well enough there. ... If you don't get in the end zone, you can't…

Kawhi will be the next great test of Toronto’s place in the NBA

NBA JERSEYS
How the best basketball players in the world answer this question governs the entire power structure of the NBA. No two players hold every team in the same regard, and the impressions of these teams fluctuate day to day. But it's not hard to identify which organizations can be found on the good list, which ones reside on the bad list and which are in between. Who can get an audience with the summer's marquee free agents? Who struggles to retain their homegrown stars? Which teams do the best players feel offer them the best chance to achieve their professional goals?nfl nike jerseys cheap china In fairness to the people who run these organizations, the playing field isn't level. They can't account for market appeal or championships won decades ago.…

If Falcons fall out of playoff hunt, should they sit Matt Ryan?

If Falcons fall out of playoff hunt, should they sit Matt Ryan?

NFL JERSEYS
The last thing the Atlanta Falcons want to see over their final four games of 2018 is Matt Ryan sprawled across the ground again and again. That vision has become too common this season for the 4-8 Falcons, with Ryan being sacked 36 times in 12 games. Ryan is on pace to be sacked a career-high 48 times, which would top the 44 sacks he absorbed in 2013.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china Falcons coach Dan Quinn obviously is concerned about the number of hits Ryan has taken this season. "Well, No. 1, I'm concerned about it because if we're not protecting him in the way that we can, then that gets hard," Quinn said Monday. "And there's some games that the score's out of whack and it turns into…

As Ravens’ QB transition nears, Giants’ plan still in limbo

NFL JERSEYS
The last coach who had the idea to sit franchise icon Eli Manning and spend December seeing what the other quarterbacks on his roster could do got fired less than a week later. That was last year, when Ben McAdoo and then-GM Jerry Reese made Geno Smith the starter for a week with a plan to play Davis Webb in later games, but both lost their jobs almost immediately and watched from a distance as Manning finished the season. It's a new regime in New York now, as you certainly know, but the Giants are dealing with the same conundrum. Manning clearly isn't what he used to be and clearly isn't the future at the position. But with four games left and the rest of their division stubbornly refusing to…

The last time Portugal hosted a major tournament, a teenage Cristiano Ronaldo ended up in tears after the hosts fell to a shock defeat against Greece in the final of Euro 2004. It has pretty much been an upward curve since then for the Juventus forward in terms of his club career, with Manchester United and then Real Madrid -- with five Champions League winners' medals -- but on the international stage, even Portugal's surprise success at Euro 2016 was tarnished for Ronaldo due to the player being injured early in the final against France.cheap wholesale nfl jerseys china But 15 years after his first international tournament ended in disappointment on home soil, Ronaldo now has what would have been an unexpected chance to go full circle and make amends…

This is the new Arsenal: Torreira, Aubameyang signal the real start of the Emery era

soccer jerseys
Sunday, Dec. 2, was billed as "derby day" on the English television networks, with three consecutive local derbies. Fulham vs. Chelsea convened in west London, and Liverpool hosted Everton on Merseyside. Realistically, though, there was one standout game, and it was in north London. Arsenal vs. Tottenham has been the Premier League's best fixture over the past decade, combining traditional local rivalry with league table significance. More often than not, it also produces great football. That's worth remembering, too, among the rush to declare everything about Unai Emery's reign as a significant shift away from the Arsene Wenger era.wholesale jerseys cheap nfl Under Wenger, Arsenal had a fine record in north London derbies; the atmosphere at the Emirates was always excellent for the meeting with their fiercest rivals, and even…

"That's the challenge of things I've been kind of battling with since the season started," James said after scoring 38 points in 38 minutes against Indiana, adding 9 rebounds and 7 assists.

When ‘new school’ and ‘old school’ collide: Jon Gruden vs. Andy Reid

NFL JERSEYS
make out who was running routes and making plays. But there was Dan Marino and the "Marks Brothers," Mark Duper and Mark Clayton, lighting up Miami and the NFL in the 1980s. And there was, as Raiders quarterback Derek Carr said, "Some 'Crazy Legs' guy, practicing hard. It was practice film. Some dude in the '50s." Yeah, Gruden went there, breaking out footage of Elroy Hirsch for motivation. And with the mutual admiration society that exists between Gruden and Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid, you have to wonder if Gruden pulled out a VCR to show the tape of Reid's iconic appearance as a massive 13-year-old rocking a Los Angeles Rams uniform in a punt, pass and kick competition from Dec. 13, 1971.cheap nfl jerseys from china nike Their…
