Raiders hope offseason changes lead to stingier defense

Posted on by

first_img WATCH US LIVE Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther felt a little hamstrung his first two years on the job.A roster overhaul left few proven pieces at his disposal and contributed to the Raiders ranking among the worst defenses in the NFL in almost every category.Guenther hopes the changes made this past offseason will finally give him the talent necessary to have a competent defense.“It used to be when we have one guy out with an injury, we bled to death,” Guenther said Thursday. “Now we have some depth across the board in the secondary, on the d-line, we can roll guys through and create roles for each and every guy. It may be 10 snaps to help us win, it may be 60 snaps to help us win, whatever it is, we have different guys and different portfolios. We can put those guys in certain spots and utilize their strengths. So, it’s exciting to actually get going and put the pads on.”The Raiders had another overhaul on defense this offseason and figure to have at least five new starters led by versatile linebackers Cory Littleton and Nick Kwiatkoski, pass-rushing defensive tackle Maliek Collins, free safety Damarious Randall and either Prince Amukamara or rookie Damon Arnette at cornerback.In all, the Raiders have no one left on the roster who started on the defense in Guenther’s first game with the team in 2018.“We really rebuilt the engine here with some new, young talent,” he said. “Very excited with where they’re at. They’re doing a hell of a job picking up the system, the scheme and techniques of everything we’re doing.”Change was definitely needed after the results of the past two seasons as the Raiders struggled to find a replacement for star pass rusher Khalil Mack and had a revolving door in the secondary.In Guenther’s two seasons at the helm, the Raiders allowed the most points per drive (2.46), tied for second most yards per play allowed (6.08), have the fewest sacks (45) and tied for fewest takeaways (32). Perhaps the biggest indictment is the league-worst 11 TD drives of at least 90 yards during that time.“A lot of times the last couple years, guys to be honest with you, you look down at your call sheet and say, ‘Well, I can’t put this guy in that situation,’ or ‘this guy in this situation.’ You have to pick and choose your spots during games,” Guenther said. “But I think, with the young talent that we have, the speed that we have, the first thing that I noticed is that we’re much faster on defense. We got some good rushers, we got some good cover guys. That’s what you need in this league to be successful.”The biggest upgrades this season will come in the middle of the field where the Raiders hope they finally have the pieces needed to neutralize tight ends and backs in the passing game.Littleton and Kwiatkoski give the Raiders their best pair of linebackers in more than a decade, and Johnathan Abram adds a physical presence at safety after going down with a season-ending shoulder injury in the opener of his rookie campaign in 2019.Randall will be counted on to clean up any mistakes on the back end.“That’s what the NFL is about, matchups, and to have as many versatile guys as you can to help match up with anything an offense gives is definitely a plus for us,” Randall said. “So, definitely happy to have Nick and Cory on the team. Cory is very, very athletic. Nick is smart and he’s the leader of the defense.”The key addition, according to coach Jon Gruden, will be defensive tackle Maliek Collins. Collins ranked eighth in the NFL last season in pressure rate among defensive tackles, according to SportsInfo Solutions, giving the Raiders another inside rusher to go with Maurice Hurst.New defensive line coach Rod Marinelli, who coached Collins in Dallas, advocated for his addition in Las Vegas.“He’s officially about to enter the prime of his career,” Gruden said. “He’s got a lot of playing experience. He’s got a lot of technical knowledge of what we want done. He’s the key to our defense. I think he’s got a chance to be one of the better ones. We’re happy about that.” FOLLOW US LIVE TV Written By Last Updated: 14th August, 2020 14:29 IST Raiders Hope Offseason Changes Lead To Stingier Defense Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther felt a little hamstrung his first two years on the job.center_img First Published: 14th August, 2020 14:29 IST COMMENT Associated Press Television News SUBSCRIBE TO USlast_img read more

Damian Lillard doesn’t hide frustration with officials, Donovan Mitchell after Trail Blazers’ controversial loss

Posted on by

first_imgMORE: Winners and losers from NBA trade deadlineUnfortunately for Portland, the officials on the floor completely botched it. Goaltending wasn’t called as the play happened, so it couldn’t be reviewed and corrected. The Blazers ultimately lost by a final score of 117-114.Dame finished with 42 points.This was not two of them. pic.twitter.com/9G82fmUL1c— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) February 8, 2020Lillard was understandably furious as he walked off the Vivint Smart Home Arena floor, and he didn’t hold back with his postgame comments.”It’s an easy call. Three referees out there and they don’t call that,” Lillard said. “I don’t want to hear no — I don’t want to see no report about, ‘Oh, we should have called that,’ or none of that. They cost us a game. We’re in a playoff race and they cost us a game — on an easy call.””We’re in a playoff race and they cost us a game, on an easy call.”@Dame_Lillard on the missed goaltending call pic.twitter.com/pMdZAa5lEz— NBC Sports Northwest (@NBCSNorthwest) February 8, 2020He later used some explicit language on social media in response to the NBA’s official pool report for the game. Crew chief Josh Tiven admitted a goaltending violation “should have been called.”We don’t wana hear this punk Ass shit. https://t.co/nuG56kaHbR— Damian Lillard (@Dame_Lillard) February 8, 2020When one Twitter user pointed out Lillard was going to get fined for the strong words, he offered a short retort: “Plenty money.” (Lillard is making nearly $30 million this season alone, and he’s got more big checks coming his way once his supermax contract kicks in.)Plenty money https://t.co/8F9sGrfVQp— Damian Lillard (@Dame_Lillard) February 8, 2020But Lillard wasn’t done just yet. He also took exception to Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell calling out Blazers reserve Gary Trent Jr. Both Mitchell and Trent earned technical fouls at the end of the first half after talking a little too much trash before heading to the locker room.”I don’t see why guys like Gary Trent should come in and think they can just punk us,” Mitchell said. “Not gonna lie to you. That shouldn’t happen. At the end of the day, we are who we are. We’re not a team that you can come in and just talk trash to. That’s just not gonna happen.”Donovan Mitchell: “I don’t see why a guy like Gary Trent should come in and think he can just punk us. … We’re not a team that you can come in and just talk trash to. We’re not just gonna back down. … That’s what we kinda lacked the past few games — just toughness.” pic.twitter.com/Repl9u006a— Eric Walden (@tribjazz) February 8, 2020Once that video hit Twitter, Lillard and Trent reacted quickly … Man stop… https://t.co/MyKXZko4TU— Damian Lillard (@Dame_Lillard) February 8, 2020Lol…. 🤟🏽😂🤟🏽 https://t.co/9ljDQjczns— GARY x TRENT x JR 🌹 (@gtrentjr) February 8, 2020And Mitchell fired right back.I said what I said… https://t.co/IrhB83kkVY— Donovan Mitchell (@spidadmitchell) February 8, 2020Man ain’t not disrespect ain’t no beef im not finna let gary Trent talk shit and that’s just what it is… 💯 https://t.co/OMT1h01PyA— Donovan Mitchell (@spidadmitchell) February 8, 2020The good news: Lillard and Mitchell will meet at least one more time during the regular season. The bad news: NBA fans will have to wait until April 2 to see the All-Stars face off.Let’s hope the officials can stay out of the spotlight next time. Damian Lillard is going to get fined by the NBA, and he doesn’t care at all.The Trail Blazers guard ripped the officiating crew after Portland’s controversial loss to Utah on Friday night. With the Trail Blazers trailing by two and only 15 seconds left in regulation, Lillard drove toward the rim and got a layup attempt to the backboard. Jazz center Rudy Gobert then clearly interfered with the ball after it touched the glass, which should have led to a goaltending violation and tie game.last_img read more

England Golf grants encourage over 22,000 golfers

Posted on by

first_img England Golf grants helped more than 22,000 people to take advantage of coaching opportunities in one year at golf clubs and driving ranges. The grants were available to clubs and ranges which respectively hold the GolfMark and RangeMark awards in recognition of their junior and beginner-friendly facilities. As a result of their activities over 7300 people have gone on to take follow-up golfing opportunities. England Golf Development Manager Richard Flint commented: “Clubs and ranges are to be congratulated on the way they used the grants to encourage people to get into golf and to play more golf. These are very impressive figures.” Just over 350 clubs took up the Club Coaching  Grant in the year to the end of March 2013. They involved more than 18,000 people in coaching with PGA professionals. Of these, 75 per cent were adults and the split between men and women was almost equal: 51% were male and 49% female. A total of 6230 adults and juniors have gone on to take follow-on opportunities at the clubs.   All 352 golf clubs offered coaching sessions and activities for adult beginners; 203 (58%) offered sessions for members and non-members aged 14 to 25; 111 (32%) provided activities to support new adult members or new players to continue their participation; 78 (22%) offered sessions for families or priority groups, such as women; black and minority ethnic groups; and those with a disability. The RangeMark Grant was taken up by 25 stand-alone ranges in the same period.  They involved 4307 people in their activities, of whom 73 per cent were adults. Of these, 70% were men and 30% women. In all, 1134 people have taken follow-on opportunities as a result. Ranges were able to use the grant for coaching with PGA professionals for adult beginners and juniors; for marketing material to promote activities; for beginners and/or junior equipment; and for other ideas to increase participation. In the current year, to the end of March 2014, GolfMark and RangeMark facilities can apply for a new £300 Junior Development Grant. This is designed to help grow the number of boys and girls getting into golf and on to regular participation, by providing structured and regular coaching sessions and activities. This grant is just one way in which England Golf supports juniors as part of its commitment to encourage the golf club members of the future. In addition to the Junior Development Grant and to the Golfmark and RangeMark awards, England Golf runs the National Skills Challenge, supported by FootJoy, and publishes the Junior Organisers’ Handbook. GolfMark and RangeMark facilities can also work with their local County Golf Partnership (CGP) and get involved with the successful recruitment and retention activities for new and returning golfers, aged 14 years and over.   The national network of CGPs encouraged more than 86,000 people to Get into golf in the year to the end of March – despite some atrocious weather, including the wettest summer for 100 years.   The CGPs support grass roots golf at county level and are an integral part of the England Golf Partnership’s (EGP) Whole Sport Plan for golf, which is supported by Sport England lottery funding. Their success has been growing steadily over the past four years and they have involved a total of 171,208 people in their activities since April 2009. The partnerships are supported by the national Get into golf marketing campaign and they attract newcomers and returners to the game by offering free tasters and structured low-cost coaching with PGA professionals at Get into golf centres. They also forge relationships with universities, groups and organisations. See www.englandgolf.org/cgps for more information about CGPs.   Image courtesy Adrian Milledge/The PGA 8 Jul 2013 England Golf grants encourage over 22,000 golfers last_img read more

Is the Green Movement Just Spinning Its Wheels?

Posted on by

first_img 7 Steps to an Energy-Efficient House: 7. Renewable EnergyPhotovoltaic (Solar)Green Basics: Wind-Generated PowerResisting the Allure of Small Wind Turbines A clash of cultures?Maybe it is the fact that “first world” inhabitants — those who live in highly developed industrial countries with robust economies — believe their wealth somehow excuses them from certain collective responsibilities.“I think the fundamental problem is this: people in ‘first world’ countries feel that if you are affluent enough to afford occasional or frequent air travel, driving all the time, and meat with every meal, then you are off the hook for minding your carbon footprint because only a communist could expect you to give these things up just to avoid screwing up the planet,” writes Thomas Jefferson. “The only acceptable steps have to look and feel like what people are used to (e.g. choosing a slightly more fuel efficient gas powered vehicle) rather than making any significant changes.”AJ Builder thinks people will adjust. “We are not going to pull back CO2 at the pace that the Gore types are asking for,” AJ writes. “It isn’t happening, period. Taking that reality in, what next? Start wringing our hands? No. What will happen is, most will adjust to whatever is thrown at them. Some won’t. Some will be affected. Some will die. In due time we all will die — no biggie … Climate is ever-changing. Smart tribes deal with it.“… Just saying, gents: … adjust and prosper … When the waves come your way, surf or move to high ground.”You’re thinking like an American, replies Paul Brazelton. “Most of the people in the world do not have the mobility, wealth, and information necessary to adapt to climate change. Look to Bangladesh for an idea of how climate change impacts whole nations; when the storms come, these people aren’t looking to hang ten — they’re figuring out how to keep their children alive on $150 a month.” Or less. Renewable Energy RELATED ARTICLES Our expert’s opinionSome thoughts from GBA technical director Peter Yost:Ecosystems never have caretakers or managers. For a long time, humans have either (often unknowingly) opted OUT of the ecosystem or claimed the title and rights of caretaker or manager without completing understanding or performing the accompanying responsibilities. Trouble is, you can neither really opt out nor manage an ecosystem. It is by definition “self-organizing.”Some environmental degradation is the sort where a concerted effort gives timely and successful results (think ozone depletion and the holes in the ozone layer over the poles), but many, like global warming, operate on a huge global flywheel, and we are simply at the tail end of a grand experiment waiting for the final results.We are the CO2 “Bigfoots” of the world (contributing 20 metric tons of C02 per capita compared to a worldwide average of 4). The ecosystem will adjust to deal with us, and it probably won’t be pretty, ecologically, geopolitically, or both.There is no logic to most of what we do; we each follow (or don’t) a unique mix of rules and personal convictions according to a mix of science, philosophy, and socioeconomic tenets. I do what I do primarily because I feel a responsibility to my children, and one tenet I want them to inherit is: it’s not all about you. Sort of a contradiction in terms.The earth is somewhere around 4.5 billion years old; life has been on it probably about 3 billion years; modern man about 200,000 years. I will claim, more than likely, about 80 years. Snap your fingers, and each of us has come and gone. You don’t do what you do based on logic or impact, but a sense that as the only fully conscious creatures we know of, we should do better, even if we are not exactly sure what that better is!So what is my answer? Is it personal action or government policy that will make the difference? Definitely, the solution requires both, but I think that if we don’t collectively and purposely lighten the load we place on our Earth — and soon — the global ecosystem is likely to “self-reorganize” around us. And all this from a full-blown ecological “Bigfoot,” GreenBuildingAdvisor or not. Is it already too late to prevent climate change?Brazelton is reminded of an article by George Monbiot called “Small is Useless.” In the article, Monbiot argues that small-scale electrical generation won’t solve climate change and, worse, such generation diverts attention and resources from things that would be more successful, like large-scale off-shore wind generation.“On one hand, I think both Wagner and Monbiot are correct,” Brazelton writes. “Personal-scale action in our current situation is, holistically speaking, worthless. On the other hand, this does not excuse inaction. We are each responsible for our own actions and impacts, regardless of what direction our government goes. Being part of a murderous regime does not absolve us of our own murderous actions.”Even so, from Brazelton’s point of view, the situation will only go from bad to worse. “Martin, it was too late a very long time ago,” he says. “Our economic and social systems are too fragile to handle even one environmental disaster at a time. AJ makes the argument that when humans feel enough pain, they’ll respond. Unfortunately, the ‘pain’ we’re feeling right now is the whine of a mini-gun spinning up. Once the real damage starts, there will be no chance at an effective response.”That may be so, but Jesse Thompson agrees with Brazelton on the need for a sense of personal responsibility. And who knows? “It’s never too late — people always seem to be capable of amazing things once they start actually working towards a goal collectively,” Thompson says. “I like Jason McLennan from Living Building Challenge’s quote, very roughly paraphrased: ‘All we need to do is completely rebuild and transform the entire U.S. economy within a decade. And for all the doubters, we’ve already done it multiple times. Railroads and electrification did it once, the WPA did it again, and the superhighway and suburban build-out completely transformed the country yet again after WWII. Let’s just get on with the next one…’“It would be nice to get started, however.”center_img More pain equals more actionAJ Builder thinks action will become likely when the impact of global warming and climate change become sufficiently painful. “One thing I think we all know,” he says. “If something starts biting us, we work hard to stop it. So when and if CO2 levels really start to cause some real pain then we most likely will work hard to stop it (the pain, at least.)”AJ Builder adds, however, that one thing often missing from the debate over rising carbon emissions is the economic benefit they bring. “Personally, I agree with some who logically state that the benefits of higher CO2 are left out of most discussions. Economy is doing. Rebuilding homes on higher land is [part of the] economy, a job creator. I love playing in surf, but also love driving a nail. My conclusion: Climate change is a job creator. Work is great way to live. And working to lower CO2 is too!”But if we wait until the consequences of global warming are really uncomfortable, Holladay replies, climate scientists believe it will be too late. And, adds Jesse Thompson, the time may already have arrived: “Anyone who thinks climate change is ‘going’ to start causing real pain just hasn’t been reading the news lately,” he says. “The folks in Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Texas [states where floods and wildfires have displaced thousands of residents] might beg to differ right now.” For GBA senior editor Martin Holladay, it all started with a column in The New York Times provocatively titled “Going Green But Getting Nowhere.”The author, Gernot Wagner, contends that individuals can make no meaningful impact on reducing carbon emissions and staving off global climate change.Even if each of the 1 billion Catholics on Earth decreased their emissions to zero overnight, Wagner writes, “the planet would surely notice but pollution would still be rising.”“So why bother recycling or riding your bike to the store? Because we all want to do something, anything,” Wagner adds. “Call it ‘action bias.’ But, sadly, individual action does not work. It distracts us from the need for collective action, and it doesn’t add up to enough. Self-interest, not self-sacrifice, is what induces noticeable change. Only the right economic policies will enable us as individuals to be guided by self-interest and still do the right thing for the planet.”And by that, he means a cap-and-trade approach put into place by government.Holladay (who has lived off the grid for many years) doesn’t agree. “My own opinion differs from Wagner’s,” he writes in a post at GreenBuildingAdvisor. “I’m a firm believer in the importance of personal actions that are consistent with our goals — but I agree that without governmental action, we face a grim future indeed.“I also disagree with the author’s belief that living off the grid is a form of purgatory,” Holladay adds. “Really, Gernot, it’s not so bad.” So what’s it going to be? Personal action or government policy? That’s the subject of this week’s Q&A Spotlight. GREEN PRODUCT GUIDE last_img read more

Curbs around Hazratbal disrupt Milad-Un-Nabi prayers

Posted on by

first_imgFearing protests, authorities on Sunday disallowed gatherings of the faithful at the Hazratbal Mosque in Srinagar on the occasion of Milad-un-Nabi, the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad.All entry points to the mosque, including Habak area on the outskirts of the city and the Rainawari and Sadrabal areas in the old city, were closed for traffic. The security forces started spreading concertina wires on the streets and used mobile bunkers to block several stretches on Saturday. as part of an exercise to impose restrictions.This move stopped the worshippers from assembling for the night-long prayers. “It is first time in my living memory that such a thin attendance of worshippers was observed on the auspicious occasion in Kashmir. Only locals living in nearby areas turned up for the night-long prayers and the daytime customary display of holy relics, which include a strand of hair of the Prophet Muhammad, also saw a thin attendance of the devotees,” said Yaqoob Qureshi, a retired teacher who has been attending the congregational prayers at the shrine since 1990. Around 2,000 worshippers, including women from nearby places, managed to offer noon prayers inside on the mosque on Sunday. According to the local caretaker, the Hazratbal shrine witnesses a gathering of more than 50,000 devotees on the occasion. “We were appraised by the security agencies beforehand and cautioned against any major gatherings”, a caretaker said. The noon prayers on Sunday saw brief sloganeering, including pro-sharia and pro-freedom slogans.The police there were fears of anti-India elements staging protests and the security arrangement was to maintain order. Meanwhile, smaller gatherings were reported from other major mosques in the Valley on the occasion.This is for the second time this month that a traditional and centuries-old congregation was not allowed. Earlier, on the occasion of Khawaja Diger, where men and women hold joint prayers at the Naqshband Sahib shrine, the security forces sealed the shrine and disallowed any prayers.Since the revocation of J&K’s special status on August 5, there is tight security arrangement in Kashmir. Internet and SMS facilities remain barred for nearly 100 days now. The authorities are yet to restore prepaid mobile services for around 35 lakh customers.last_img read more
