Deshaun Watson is the canvas on which Bill O’Brien wanted to paint all along

All the hell Bill O’Brien has caught during his years as Texans coach, for not coming up with anything close to a solution at quarterback, is well-deserved. Yet he may have taken himself off the Cheap Jerseys Soccer China hook for good.

The racist and violent words directed at me and my son only serve as another reminder that our country remains divided and full of hateful rhetoric. These words of hate will only fuel me in my efforts to continue my work reaching out to different community groups, listening to opposing voices, and honoring the men and women in the Armed Forces who risk their lives every day so that we may have this dialogue. I am proud to represent the many faces of Titans fans and believe that only through a more respectful discourse can we achieves the goals of unity, peace and racial equality that I know we all strive for.

Richard Sherman blasts fantasy football after Chris Carson injury

Seahawks running back Chris Carson was carted off the field Sunday night with what coach Pete Carroll called a “significant” ankle injury. And if you were one of the thousands of fantasy football players with Carson on your team, Richard Sherman isn’t impressed with how you may have reacted.

“I think a lot of people, a lot of fans out there have looked at players even less like people because of fantasy football and things like that,” Sherman said (via The Seattle Times). “You’re not thinking, ‘Hey man, this guy got hurt — he’s really physically hurt and he’s going to take time to recover and it’s probably going to affect his mental state and his physical state and now he has a long, rigorous rehab.’ You’re thinking, ‘Oh, man, he’s messing up my fantasy team.'”

Carson left Sunday night’s 46-18 win over the Colts early after getting his left leg awkwardly bent and twisted. Carson was originally believed to have suffered only an ankle injury.

Carson, a seventh-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State, had separated himself as the lead back in Seattle’s crowded backfield. He amassed 66 total yards Sunday before leaving.

Should Carson miss an extended period of time, Eddie Lacy, who had 52 yards on 11 Cheap Jerseys MLB China carries Sunday, and J.D. McKissic, who scored two touchdowns against the Cheap Jerseys Online China Colts, could share running back duties.

C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls, both inactive against the Colts, could also factor into Seattle’s running back committee.
