We are just days away from the kickoff to the 2014 NFL Season, and as always, there will be some interesting developments and surprises that unfold in the weeks ahead.
You can call me daring, crazy, or even stupid, but here are 11 bold predictions for the upcoming football season:
Scientific and medical officials representing preeminent international sports organizations convened at the NFL offices for a two-day ‘Think Tank’ on concussion research, diagnosis, management and treatment. The event concluded today.
The International Professional Sports Concussion Research Think Tank was assembled by DR. RICH ELLENBOGEN (Chairman, Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Washington Co-chair, NFL Head, Neck and Spine Committee), and three co-chairs of the 4th International Consensus on Concussion in Sport: DR. JIŘÍ DVOŘÁK (Chairman, FIFA Medical and Research Centre; Chief Medical Officer, FIFA); DR. PAUL MCCRORY (Associate Professor, The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, Melbourne, Australia) and DR. WILLEM MEEUWISSE (Professor, University of Calgary Sport Injury Prevention Research Centre and Hotchkiss Brain Institute).
Six-time Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins has been traded by the New England Patriots to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for undrafted tight end Tim Wright and one draft pick, according to sources.
Pawtucket starter Matt Barnes cooled off the hot Buffalo offense by tossing 7.1 strong innings and third baseman Garin Cecchini hit a three-run double as the PawSox up-ended the Bisons, 6-2, Monday night at Coca-Cola Field to move back into sole possession of first-place in the IL wild card standings.
Minnesota Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe and center fielder Danny Santana have been named the American League Co-Players of the Week for the period ending August 24th. The announcement was made earlier today on MLB Network.
Buffalo first-baseman Brett Wallace smashed a walkoff grand slam in the 12th inning, his third home run of the afternoon, as the Bisons came from behind to defeat the Pawtucket Red Sox, 10-6, Sunday afternoon at Coca-Cola Field to move into a first-place tie with Pawtucket in the IL wild card standings.
While sports fans start to shift their focus onto football, there is still baseball to be played. With a little over a month left in the season, things are starting to heat up in the playoff races. To talk some baseball with Parente & Pal is Los Angeles Dodgers Beat Writer JP Hoornstra.
