defensive tackle Cornelius Washington played his first four seasons with the Bears.

Before signing with the Lions in the offseason, defensive tackle Cornelius Washington played his first four seasons with the Bears. He’s a big guy at 6’4 and almost 300 pounds, but like a lot of Bears players, he wasn’t really as big as you would normally see with a 3-4 defensive lineman. He did still make plays last season even though it didn’t appear that he was a good fit for that defense. You could just see that the few opportunities he had in the gap as an upfield penetrator, he was more suited for that than being head up on an offensive lineman and two-gapping.

Cunningham played college football at the University of Washington as an offensive lineman, where he was a captain of the Huskies’ 1991 national title-winning team. he was then drafted in the third round of the NFL, where he spent five seasons with the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks. Cunningham also mentioned his Cardinals teammate, Dave Duerson, who committed suicide in 2011, and was found to be suffering from C.T.E. in the NYT interview.

“I know a lot of people who say: ‘I just can’t cheer for the big hits anymore. I used to go nuts, and now I’m like, I hope he gets up,’” Cunningham said with tears welling up in his eyes, via the newspaper. “It’s changing for all of us. I don’t currently think the game is safe for the brain. And, oh, by Cheap Quality Baseball Jerseys the way, I’ve had teammates who have killed themselves. Dave Duerson put a shotgun to his chest so we could study his brain.”

We’ve obviously seen NFL players walk away from football over brain Cheap Replica Jerseys injury concerns, such as San Fransisco’s Chris Borland, Baltimore’s John Urschel, and Buffalo’s A.J. Tarpley, but Cunningham is the first broadcaster to do so. We’ll see if this becomes a trend sometime in the near future. Cunningham was typically on the noon ABC broadcasts alongside Mike Patrick with Dr. Jerry Punch on the sidelines.

Rockets advance while Spurs, Jazz take 3-2 leads

Russell Westbrook did not go gentle into that good night, and try as he might to rage against the dying of the light, the Rockets took flight and ended his fight.

Now that we’ve tipped our caps to Dylan Thomas, let’s get back to the NBA playoffs. James Harden and the Rockets kicked off Tuesday night’s slate of games by eliminating the Thunder in a 105-99 win. (Thanks to Russ for making the 2016-17 season a ton of fun.) As for the other series, the Spurs and Jazz both gained 3-2 leads in key Game 5 matchups. The Jazz will travel back home to Utah for Game 6 while the Spurs head to Memphis in the hopes of closing things out and meeting Houston in the second round.

Had Pacers coach Nate McMillan not called a timeout and allowed the Cavs defense to reset at the end of Game 1, maybe George would have found his own Iso Joe moment, both clutch and correct in the context of the game. But given the information presented to him, he kicked it over to Miles, and the veteran shooting guard got off a decent attempt, not unlike Young’s play above. If he passes back to George, then it’s one-on-one against James out near half court with less than five seconds to go.

The most clutch players in league history needed help to ultimately win it all. James inbounded the ball to Kyrie Irving before Irving drilled a 3-pointer in Game 7 last year to help bring Cleveland a title. Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal both missed before the ball landed in the hands of Robert Horry for the game-winner in the 2002 Western Conference finals. Even Michael Jordan found an open Steve Kerr in the 1997 NBA Finals when John Stockton decided to double him.
