Eagles’ Doug Pederson Won’t Bench Carson Wentz Despite Ugly Week 3

Sign In

Doug Pederson is not ready to give up on Carson Wentz.

The Eagles quarterback has been picked off six times in Philadelphia’s first three games and has yet to help lead the team to a win.

But Pederson isn’t thinking of benching Wentz so early in the season.

“No. You don’t go there. That’s a knee-jerk reaction,” Pederson said during an appearance on 94.1 WIP on Monday. “Carson’s our quarterback. We’re going to get it fixed. He is going to get it fixed.”

Philly tied with the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday to bring its record to 0-2-1.

The rough start has fans calling for Jalen Hurts to be the signal-caller. But despite being winless, the Eagles sit just a half-game out of first place in the NFC East.

Philadelphia’s next task will be the 2-1 San Francisco 49ers in Week 4.

NBA Rumors: Two Teams Already Contacted Doc Rivers About Head Coach Position

Sign In

Well, that didn’t take long.

It’s only been a couple of hours since Doc Rivers announced his departure from the Los Angeles Clippers, and he already appears to be drawing plenty of interest.

Two teams reportedly have contacted Rivers about their respective head coaching positions, according to The Undefeated’s Marc. J. Spears: The New Orleans Pelicans and the Philadelphia 76ers.

New Orleans Pelicans and Philadelphia 76ers have already reached out to former Clippers head coach Doc Rivers in regards to their head coach openings, sources told @TheUndefeated.— Marc J. Spears (@MarcJSpears) September 28, 2020

The Pelicans fired Alvin Gentry on Aug. 15 after New Orleans failed to make the cut to compete in the NBA’s postseason bubble. He spent five seasons with the team, though they only reached the postseason once in that span.

The 76ers were close behind, firing Brett Brown after Philly was swept by the Boston Celtics in their first-round playoff series Aug. 23. He led the team to three straight playoff appearances at the tail end of his stint, though the Sixers failed to make it beyond the conference semifinals.

Rivers saw a similar fate in L.A. The Clippers never made it past the Western Conference semifinals under his direction — including a blown 3-1 series lead to the Denver Nuggets in the second round of the 2020 postseason — and parted ways with the team after seven seasons Monday afternoon.

But where exactly will Rivers land? Only time will tell, and its a bit too early to know exactly which way he might be leaning (if he’s leaning in any direction at all).

Twitter Trolls Doc Rivers For Not Sticking With Celtics Through Rebuild

Sign In

Doc Rivers will not coach the Los Angeles Clippers in 2021, he announced himself Monday on Instagram, confirming reports from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The news comes after the team’s upset in the NBA Playoffs, where the Denver Nuggets overcame a 3-1 series deficit to advance to the Western Conference finals, but Rivers reportedly garnered a bit of interest from other teams already.

Still, Rivers seven-year stint with L.A. was somewhat disappointing, especially considering he’s coached talent like Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul.

If you remember, Rivers was traded to the Clippers for a first-round pick in 2013, as the coach seemed to have no interest in coaching the Boston Celtics during their rebuild.

Yet, in the years he’s been gone, the Celtics have fared much better than the Clippers in the postseason.

And no one was quicker to remind the world of that after his reported firing than Boston fans on Twitter.

Many Major League Baseball players have had it tough during the abbreviated season, especially in having to be away from their families.

But after the Boston Red Sox’s 2020 campaign came to a close Sunday without the team making playoffs, a few have headed home for the offseason.

Kevin Plawecki included, whose reunion with his son was captured in an adorable video on his wife Tayler’s Instagram after they had been separated all season.

New England Revolution Notebook: Gustavo Bou Back On Top

After several sub-par performances, Gustavo Bou has gotten back into the swing of things with the New England Revolution. On Monday Major League Soccer (MLS) announced their team of the week for Week 14 of the 2020 MLS season and Bou was in the Starting XI alongside Tom Barlow and Kacper Przybylko as the forwards in week 14.

The 30-year-old Designated Player has appeared in all 14 matches for the Revs this season and has 12 starts. In that action, Bou has scored a team-high five goals while also tacking on three assists. When Bou was struggling to find the back of the net he was still taking his shots. Bou leads all of MLS in shot attempts with 53 and his shots on goal of 19 ranks second in MLS behind LAFC’s Diego Rossi who has 27. In addition, Bou has three game-winning goals this season which is tied with the league-lead. Thru 28 MLS appearances, Bou has now scored 14 goals.

Rest Up While You Can

New England took Monday off from training and will take Tuesday off as well following their 2-0 win at D.C. United on Sunday night. Starting with Saturday’s match against Nashville SC the Revs will play eight games in 30 days to close out the 2020 MLS season. This is a critical stretch for the Revolution who are 5-3-6 on the season and sit in 5th place in the standings with 21 points. New England trails first-place Columbus by 9 points and maximizing points in the final eight games will decide whether or not 2020 was a success. The Revs are winners of two straight matches and are trending in the right direction.

 “We have, I think, nine games left if I’m doing my math correctly,” said Sporting Director and Head Coach Bruce Arena on the Revs coming into the right form. It’s an odd year. I don’t even know how to explain it. Certainly, that was the best game we’ve played this year. It was a complete game, we had to work real hard. D.C. United needed to get a result tonight and they pushed us. We did a good job in all aspects of the game, so that was certainly something I’m pleased with. Hopefully it continues. Our guys are going to need a couple of days off, because it’s been a real grind this past week. They can use a little bit of a break and get away from it. I think we’re playing well. The last nine games in this league is what it’s all about, so hopefully we can position ourselves to be in the playoffs and maybe in a good position as well. But who knows? There’s a lot of soccer to be played, there’s going to be a really tight schedule from here to November, so it’ll be an interesting to see how we’ll do. Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve certainly done well. I would even say in Philadelphia, where we didn’t get a good result, the team played well. I think we’re headed in the right direction.”

One of the storyline following Sunday night’s win over D.C. was the injury to Matt Polster. The midfielder took a boot to the head and had to leave the match just before half-time. Polster was diagnosed with a concussion but took to social media on Monday to share that he is doing well.

Scary moment on the pitch last night.Diagnosed with a concussion.Can’t say I remember much, but feeling better today. Thank you to both team medical staff for acting quickly and taking care of me.Glad the boys got the 3 points!

Why Cam Newton Views 2020 Season With Patriots As ‘Business Trip’

Sign In

Cam Newton’s first season with the New England Patriots hardly qualifies as a vacation, even though the veteran quarterback is doing his part to “lighten the mood” in Foxboro.

In fact, it’s very much a “business trip” for Newton, who signed a one-year contract with New England over the offseason and is taking seriously the opportunity to prove he’s still among the NFL’s elite.

“I am a person who takes anything to heart — I mean anything,” Newton said Monday on WEEI’s “The Greg Hill Show.” “The whole decision — and not to keep beating a dead horse — this is a business trip for me. The fact that I don’t have none of my children here in Boston with me, and the fact that I haven’t been able to see them on a regularity, that’s angry in itself for me. I wake up every morning missing the hell out of my children and knowing that if I don’t do what I am supposed to do, then this could be good riddance for me. That is as serious as I’m making it, and that’s as serious it is.”

How Cam Newton Would Grade His ‘Subpar’ Game For Patriots Vs. Raiders

Newton spent 86 nights as a free agent after being released by the Carolina Panthers in March, only becoming more motivated with each of earth’s rotations. He eventually joined the Patriots on a team-friendly deal in wake of Tom Brady’s departure from New England and landed the starting quarterback job over Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer.

So far, it’s been a tremendous match, with Newton looking like the top-flight signal-caller he was for most of his Carolina tenure upon being drafted No. 1 overall in 2011. He’s left little doubt he still has plenty in the tank at age 31, leading the Patriots to a 2-1 start by delivering an overall strong performance with both his arm and his legs.

“I have so much to prove. I could care less about other critics, but more or less I have so much to prove to myself,” said Newton, who battled injuries in recent years. “I have seen a lot of great football being played. I have seen a lot of great football being played over the time that I was injured and whatnot. You have to question yourself and question the man that you are and say, ‘Can you still play at a high level?’ There’s an expectation that I have for myself, and I’m trying to just meet it every single day of my life.”

The debate surrounding Newton now is less about whether he can play and more about whether he’s New England’s long-term answer at quarterback. If he continues to succeed throughout this season, Newton should generate far more interest on the open market than he did following his release from Carolina, and the Patriots thus might need to drop a significant chunk of cash to keep him around.

Surely, a hefty payday would go a long way toward validating Newton’s status as a premier QB. He’s not necessarily eyeing dollar signs, though. Instead, he’s focused on producing between the lines at the level he’s been accustomed to throughout his football life.

“It’s always about taking care of business,” Newton said. “My focus is so nearsighted that I’m trying to make things work, and if I am looking for long-term results with not too many things to have leverage on, then that’s not good. For me, I just look at the opportunity that I have been given — and it is a great opportunity, I’ll tell you that, and I think people already know that. It’s up to me about how I finish what I started. It’s not necessarily about the things that people want to make it about. It’s about going out and and every week and first off winning, and then everything else falls in place.”

Newton entered this season facing immense pressure, stemming from both his personal NFL journey and the awkwardness of replacing the greatest quarterback in league history. All he’s done since is rise to the occasion.

Not a bad business trip to this point, all things considered.

Boston Red Sox Post Mortem: Plenty Of Highlights To Go With Lowlights

This past weekend the book closed on the 2020 Boston Red Sox who played a shortened 60-game season and finished with a 24-36 record. Boston finished in dead-last in the AL East and trailed the first-place Tampa Bay Rays by 16.0 games. This was the first last-place finish by the Red Sox since 2015 and their worst games-back finish since 2014 when they finished 25 games back of first place in a 162-game season.

Boston’s .400 winning percentage when scaled out to a 162-game season would have resulted in a 64.8 win season which would have been their fewest wins in a single 162 game season since 1965 when Boston won 62 games. The .400 winning percentage is the worst the franchise has posted since 1907 when the then Boston Americans posted a .396 winning percentage in a 155 game season.

Overall this was a tough season to gauge for the Red Sox who had to fire Alex Cora just prior to Spring Training and installed Ron Roenicke as their manager. Roenicke for his role in the 2020 season was fired by Boston on Sunday ahead of their final game of the season. It was a tough spot for Roenicke though. Newcomer Chaim Bloom was tasked with trading away Mookie Betts and in the process sent former CY Young winner David Price with him.

Objectively speaking this Boston Red Sox team was the least talented roster they have put together since the 2014 season when the team did little to spice up a reigning World Series champion team that was clearly a one-hit-wonder. It is easy to look at the 2020 season and pick out the negatives, so let’s break that down first.

The Good

Jackie Bradley Jr.: JBJ is likely gone with it very unlikely John Henry gives Bloom enough money to pay the centerfielder. JBJ had a good season hitting .283 in 217 at-bats. Alex Verdugo: He’s no Mookie Betts but he still hit .308 which was a team-high average. Solid first year for the 24-year-old. Xander Bogaerts: Bogearts was the best all-around hitter for the Red Sox posting a .300 average and a team-high .867 OPS and hitting 11 home runs and driving in 28 RBIs. Bogaerts is still a super-star. Christian Vazquez: The 29-year-old hit .283 as the catcher’s offense continues to be steadily above average. Credit to Dave Dombrowski on the great contract. Bobby Dalbec: Dalbec only had 80 at-bats but hitting .263 is a tad higher than I thought he could do at the Major League Level hit 8 homers and drove in 16 RBIs. Strong start for Dalbec who still needs to learn how to control himself at the plate. 39 strikeouts is worrisome. OPS of .959 is good though… Kevin Plawecki: .341 average for a back-up catcher in 82 at-bats is elite. Scaled out that doesn’t happen again but that is a solid signing by Bloom Martin Perez: While a 4.50 ERA isn’t anything to write home about it is right on par with what Perez is. He started a team-high 12 games and had a team-high 62 innings thrown. The 29-year-old was reliable when the rest of the rotation wasn’t. Boston has a $6.25M option for 2021 which they should use unless the COVID-19 impact drops the value on starting pitching. Nathan Eovaldi: The 30-year-old was injured for a chunk of the season but had a 4-2 record and a 3.72 ERA in 48.1 innings of work. Boston asked him to be the ACE which he in theory was. A solid year for Evoaldi but still isn’t worth that $17M price tag Boston is stuck with for two more seasons. I would look to trade out of the contract if Boston isn’t looking to be back in the playoffs for next year. Phillips Valdez: The 28-year-old finally broke into the majors and he posted a 3.26 ERA in 30.1 innings and was the most consistent reliever in the bullpen. Another win in the Bloom column. Tanner Houck: Yes he only had three starts but posting a 3-0 record and striking out 21 batters in his first 17 big league innings is commendable. The 24-year-old should be a solid candidate to be in Boston’s starting rotation to start the 2021 season. Darwinzon Hernandez: COVID delayed the start of the 23-year-old’s season but in seven outings he allowed two earned runs in 8.1 innings of work. He also struck out 13 batters. Very limited action but in 2020 it’s something. Interested to see if Boston tries to stretch Hernandez back out for a run at being a starter in 2021. Nick Pivetta: Like Houck and Hernandez Pivetta had very limited action with Boston in 2020. The 27-year-old posted a 1.80 ERA in 10 innings of work allowing two earned runs and posting a 2-0 record. Another solid candidate to make the 2021 rotation.

The Bad

Andrew Benintendi: Benny played in just 14 games this season and landed on the 60-day-IL. In that limited action, the 25-year-old hit a measly .103 in 39 at-bats and had an OPS of .442. The outfielder really needed a bounce-back year after a mediocre 2019 campaign in-which he hit .255 in 541 at-bats. Injuries are tough but it’s hard to optimistic about Benintendi for the moment. Tough to sell low here but if there was a real minor league season and he was healthy I wouldn’t have been shocked to see him in Triple-A. Rafael Devers: Devers after having an MVP type of season in 2019 with a .311 average and 32 homers with 115 RBIs the 23-year-old slumped in 2020. In 57 games Devers hit .263 and hit 11 homers while driving in 43 RBIs. OPS was also significantly down. Defensively Devers hasn’t gotten any better either, would have liked to see Bobby Dalbec get some action at the hot corner towards the end as well. Devers should be fine long-term but this is certainly a buzz-kill. Maybe a switch to first-base is a good idea. Michael Chavis: We knew Chavis had pop and would strike-out a ton, he did just that in 2020. Chavis struck out 50 times in 146 at-bats and hit .212 with 5 homers and 19 RBIs. Just not good enough to be an everyday player has to be more disciplined. J.D. Martinez: Martinez is an excuse train, hit .213 in 211 at-bats and hit just 7 homers, and drove in 27 RBIs. Boston is likely hoping he doesn’t opt-in for next year but it’s hard to see a team ponying up to pay the 32-year-old more money. Colten Brewer, Chris Mazza, Zack Godley, Jeffery Springs, Josh Osich, Dylan Covey, Mike Kickham, Marcus Walden, Kyle Hart: All of these pitchers contributed to why the 2020 Red Sox finished the way they did. Just yikes.

There are always positives with the negatives and the 2020 Boston Red Sox are no different. Losing Chris Sale and Eduardo Rodriguez for the season is brutal. The upside is that helped the Red Sox lose more games and en-route earn a top-five pick in the upcoming draft. In a year without fans in the stands, the Red Sox were able to get away with their worst-performing team in the 21st century. They will need to rebound in 2021 but it doesn’t seem like ownership is willing to pony up and bring in a big free agent. That means Bloom will have to work his magic thru the draft, develop current talent, and hit on lower free agent signings or trades.

Starting with bringing in a capable big-league manager is a start, the sooner the better as the Red Sox need to build a solid foundation. Hopefully it is Alex Cora or a similar type of manager as the 2021 Red Sox will need a steady hand at the wheel.

But to be fair, it is only up from here.

Liverpool Vs. Arsenal: Score, Highlights As Reds Remain Unbeaten In EPL

A dominant first half set the tone for Liverpool on Monday, and it held on to a one-goal lead through the rest of the match until the 87th minute, when the Reds added insurance.

With the Round 3 victory over Arsenal at Anfield, Liverpool remains perfect in the Premier League season at 3-0.

Sadio Mané, Andrew Robertson and Diogo Jota all scored to give their team the advantage, responding well and rapidly to the Gunner’s opening goal of the game.

Goaltender Alisson made four stops in net, and Liverpool moves up to second place in the standings thanks to the late-game goal that helped chip away at Leicester City’s league-best goal differential (eight).

Doc Rivers Confirms He’s Parting Ways With Clippers After Seven Seasons

Sign In

It appears the Clippers are in the market for a new head coach.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Monday reported head coach Doc Rivers “is out” with Los Angeles after seven seasons with the team.

Rivers confirmed his departure a short time later via Twitter and thanked Clipper Nation for its support.

“While I was able to accomplish most of my goals, I won’t be able to see them all through,” he wrote. “… Thank you to all the players, coaches, and staff for helping us get here. Most importantly, thank you to the fans. We went through a lot, and I am grateful for my time here.”

pic.twitter.com/UehImTaSnw— doc rivers (@DocRivers) September 28, 2020

The move comes nearly two weeks after the Clippers were eliminated from the playoffs in the second round by the Denver Nuggets. Many had higher expectations for the team’s 2019-20 campaign, especially after scooping up star forward Kawhi Leonard last offseason.

Rivers first joined the Clippers in June 2013 and led the team to a franchise record 57 wins in his first season at the helm. But L.A. has failed to go beyond the Western Conference semifinals while under his direction, including their recent second-round loss to the Nuggets.
