Want to make a McCourty brother dress up like a superhero? Here’s how

If you’ve ever wanted to see Devin McCourty in a Batman costume, or maybe Jason McCourty wearing Superman’s tights, this is your chance.

The Patriots defensive backs and former Rutgers standouts will host their annual Heel to Heal Plus Tackle Sickle Cell 5K with Embrace Kids Foundation on Saturday at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. Over 600 participants have registered for the event, but fundraising is still underway and registration closes Thursday at 4 p.m.

I’m part of history. I’m part of not winning a Cup here for a long time, retired winger Peter Bondra said. I don’t even play, but I feel like a part of this team, believe it or not. It’s just something in it. Obviously, I play here for 14 years, I grew up here with the team as a player, my family grew up here. Seeing this would be amazing if it happens.

It’s almost amazing this team even exists. After missing the playoffs in their first eight seasons, there was a Save the Caps campaign in 1982 just to keep them around and in Washington.

We couldn’t sell tickets, said Irene Pollin, now 93. We went to Montreal to fight for the franchise, So for three days and three nights we were up and I was in a nightgown typing letters to the president and everybody to have them send letters to the league because they kept saying, ‘Washington is a southern city, it’ll never be a hockey town.’

At the end of the day in this league — and in any league — it’s about scoring points, Sarkisian said, via the team’s official website. And we were really dynamic offensively (in 2017). We were third in the league in explosive plays a year ago, we were No. 1 in the NFL in third-down conversions, but at the end of the day we didn’t score enough points.

Atlanta dipped from a league-high 33.8 points per game under Kyle Shanahan in 2016 to 22.1 last year under Sark, good for 15th in the NFL.

As a rookie, Grossman was buried behind Chris Chandler and Kordell Stewart before he got a chance to start in Week 17.

New coach Lovie Smith anointed Grossman the starter going into the QB’s second season.

On the surface, those first 10 starts don’t look too bad. Then you realize it took him through the early 2006 season to tally that many because of major injuries to his knee and then ankle. Grossman didn’t quite cut it as the Bears’ No. 1.

This happened by a happy accident. The Steelers were about to stick with Tommy Maddox as their starting QB, but the veteran suffered a major elbow injury in Week 2. Roethlisberger hasn’t looked back since starting in Week 3 as a rookie.

The old way of NFL, you line up and you run this play no matter how many guys are in the box, no matter what coverage it is. So we’re kind of evolving the game and the defensive guys can never be right no matter what they do. Of course, and NFL offense that incorporates spread concepts needs its quarterback to be able to handle far more responsibilities than put on college signal-callers.

Nagy’s offense is quarterback-driven, and while he’s tailoring it to Mitch Trubisky – who ran a version of the spread offense at North Carolina – there’s still plenty of responsibility put on the former No. 2 overall pick. And the process the Bears are in to teach it to Trubisky is, and will be, lengthy. What I always tell guys and what Matt has told the team is, let’s take baby steps,Daniel said. We’re not going to try to run before we walk.

Emmanuel Acho, who was teammates with Kendricks in 2013 and 2014, said the Super Bowl champion wasn’t all that upset with the move:

Per conversation w/ #Eagles Kendricks: •Dozens of teams have already reached out. •Played in 3/4 & 4/3 for 3 years each so he doesn’t have a preference. •Is looking for an aggressive and attacking defense.

Kam Chancellor says he’ll listen to his body in regards to whether he plays or not

Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor is expected to have testing Cheap Barcelona Jerseys done in late June or early July that will give him a clearer picture as to whether he can continue his football career despite a neck injury sustained last November.

In an interview with 13News Now in Norfolk, Virginia – Chancellor’s hometown – he said that he’ll heed the advice he receives when it comes to deciding on his course of action.

“I don’t see myself as old. I feel like I’m still in my prime, so it’s not an age thing at all. It’s just a matter of structural issues in the neck and if they change or not,” Chancellor said.

Clay told the Buffalo News that he’s been experimenting with different nutrition plans during his NFL career, but he’s taken eating properly particularly seriously since that injury nine months ago. He’s also been trying to tell young teammates to take their nutrition seriously — not that they often listen.

“It took me awhile to realize how big of a role food played in the way your body feels and things like that,” Clay said. “That’s just something, as you go on, you kind of learn. You get young guys who come in here, you try to tell them, ‘Man, you shouldn’t be eating that.’ They’re like, ‘Yeah, whatever.’ I had guys early on tell me that it was something that I had to kind of try to experiment with. As you get older, your needs change, so you just have change what you do.”
