So here we are, nearing the halfway mark of a National Fickle League season that is more unpredictable than it ever has been.

Remember all the preseason questions for the Patriots about going undefeated? That ended on opening night when Alex Smith Cheap NFL Jerseys China walked into Gillette Stadium and looked more like Tom Brady than Tom Brady.

In this parity-stricken NFL, nothing is certain other than death, taxes and the Browns stinking.

The road to Minneapolis and Super Bowl LII is a long one for the Vikes — six of their last nine games are on the road. But the 4-3 Packers have Brett Hundley playing quarterback and the 3-3 Lions have a two-game losing streak and the Steelers coming to town.

Some might argue that the team should have paid up to do a long-term deal with Cousins in 2016, back when he was first hit with the franchise tag, which would have conceivably allowed them to lock him up for less than he’d cost them now. But at that point, Cousins had been a full-time starter for just one season, and I don’t think he was worth more than the $16 million per year they offered him at the time. I think they were smart to tag him and make him prove he was worth the money. Based on how he’s performed since, I don’t think he’ll be Cheap Authentic Jerseys able to play up to the size of the contract it’d take to keep him in Washington, either via the tag or a long-term agreement.

Cleveland’s new management team all but confirmed in a statement last week the troubled quarterback will be released in early March — as soon as allowed under NFL rules — in the wake of yet another in a string of ugly off-field incidents involving Manziel.
The latest incident — Manziel is being investigated by Dallas police for allegedly beating and kidnapping his ex-girlfriend last week — probably means the former Heisman Trophy winner will have a hard time finding another NFL job, at least this year.

Manziel was thought to be headed to the Cowboys, where owner Jerry Jones has coveted him since the 2014 draft, but even Jones reportedly considers him radioactive in light of recent events.

Not only is Manziel likely to be punished by the NFL, but he also faces possible arrest in Texas and has been in and out of drug rehab. That’s a lot of drama and heartburn for a backup quarterback, which is why Manziel probably can expect a cold shoulder from teams next month.

The Texans had a solid roster desperately lacking a quarterback, and now they have one in Deshaun Watson. They may have to outscore teams, but they have the ability with Watson throwing to De’Andre Hopkins and a healthy Will Fuller. Watson can carry the Texans.

They suffered too many injuries on the defensive line, with J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus set to miss the entire season.

For some NBA fans, the Nuggets are potentially surprise contenders in the Blake Griffin sweepstakes. After a potential three-team trade with the Cavaliers and Pacers that would’ve sent Kevin Love to the Nuggets failed to materialize, Denver is reportedly targeting Griffin. He would add another double-double threat to the Nuggets’ frontcourt alongside center Nikola Jokic, who is coming off a season in which he averaged 16.7 points and 9.8 rebounds per game.

In order to keep up with the arm’s race that is currently taking place in the NBA, Denver needs to add another star to its roster, and free agency might be the best avenue to do so without having to lose one of its young guards — Gary Harris, Emmanuel Mudiay and Jamal Murray — or future first-round picks in a trade. After going 40-42 last season, finishing ninth in the Western Conference and one game out of eighth, Denver would boost its chances to get over the hump and safely into the playoffs with the addition of Griffin.

In December 2011, the Cubs infamously shipped LeMahieu to Colorado in exchange for Ian Stewart, who spent more time tweeting than playing in a Cubs uniform. Often cited as a rare swing-and-miss for the Cubs front office, LeMahieu has gone on to make a name for himself in Denver.

The Rockies second baseman said the trade caught him Cheap NBA Basketball Jerseys off guard mostly because he saw himself as a piece of the Cubs’ future.

But LaMahieu, a second-round selection by the Cubs in 2009, had only a brief opportunity in 2011 to show the Cubs what he was capable of, spending most Cheap NFL Jerseys China of June in Chicago before returning to the minors for two months ahead of a roster-expansion callup in September. In that time, his slash line of .250/.262/.283 didn’t wow the new front office, so he was trade fodder come winter.
