Le’Veon Bell Opens Up About Jets’ Abysmal 0-2 Start To The Season

Le’Veon Bell was one the biggest free-agent signings the NFL fseason and as we all know by now, he ended up going to New York to play with the Jets. Considering just how bad the Jets have been over the last decade, Bell’s decision was a peculiar one although he seems pretty excited to be there. In his first game as a Jet, he picked up a touchdown but the team blew a 16-0 lead and they ended up losing. Last night, Bell put up over 100 yards total but once again the team lost, this time at the hands the Cleveland Browns by a score 23-3.

Fans were concerned about how Bell would react if the team got f to a bad start. Well today, Jets fans got their answer as Bell took to Twitter with some words encouragement for his team. 

“Yea, I’m frustrated things haven’t went our way. But I look at life and think, how can I complain?” Bell wrote. “I’m grateful to be in this position & to play this game.”

Bell and the Jets will be in tough again next weekend when they take on the 2-0 New England Patriots who have allowed just three points in two games. Needless to say, it won’t be getting easier from here on out.

Cam Newton Injury Status Updated As Panthers Reveal Foot Problem

If you’re a Carolina Panthers fan, the start to this season has been disastrous. The team started out with a loss to the Los Angeles Rams and then lost to a divisional rival and frequent bottom feeder, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Quarterback Cam Newton has not looked like himself so far and it’s starting to be concerning for the team and its supporters.

Today, the Panthers were given even more bad news as according to Adam Schefter, Newton suffered a foot injury during the team’s loss to the Bucs. The superstar QB wasn’t at practice today and according to the team’s general manager, there is no timeline for a return right now.

The Panthers are set to take on the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday and it’s unclear if Newton will be able to participate in that game. At 0-2, the next match is a must-win scenario or the team can pretty well kiss their playf chances goodbye. It’s almost impossible to make the playfs after starting 0-3 so Panthers fans better hope they get Newton back soon.

Stay tuned for updates on Newton’s injury as we will be sure to bring you the latest information throughout the week. It’s been a rough week for starting QBs.

Trevor Siemian’s Gruesome Ankle Injury Had NFL Fans Queasy

Trevor Siemian was thrust into the starting quarterback role for the New York Jets this past week after it was revealed that Sam Darnold was suffering from a bad case Mono. Siemian doesn’t have very much starting experience under his belt so it wasn’t a surprise when he had an abysmal start to the game. Things went from bad to worse for Siemian when he was tackled by Myles Garrett in the second quarter. As you can see from the gruesome video below, Siemian’s ankle collapses from underneath him and it looks as though it’s broken. Shockingly, Siemian was able to get up under his own power and walk it f.

Siemian didn’t come back to the game and was replaced by Luke Falk who did a decent job for the Jets, although he struggled to get points on the board. Siemian is set to receive an MRI on his ankle and as right now, Falk is the number one quarterback for a Jets team who are now 0-2 on the season.

Fans witnessed the injury live and were pretty taken aback by what they saw, rushing to Twitter to proclaim their disgust. The injury definitely wasn’t for the faint heart.

Ben Roethlisberger Suffers Season-Ending Elbow Injury, Fans React

Earlier today, it was revealed that Drew Brees would be ruled out for the next six weeks due to a devastating thumb injury on his throwing hand. Now, we have even more bad quarterback news to report as Pittsburgh Steelers superstar Ben Roethlisberger has been ruled out for the entire season with an elbow injury, according to Adam Schefter ESPN.

Roethlisberger injured his elbow during their loss against the Seattle Seahawks yesterday and missed the second half. After the game, Big Ben underwent an MRI and as it turns out, he will need to have surgery on it. This injury is so severe that he won’t be able to come back at all this season. 

The Steelers are 0-2 to start the season and are already in tough in their division which is being dominated by the 2-0 Baltimore Ravens. It doesn’t seem like the Steelers have much a chance to come back now and fans are distraught at what this means for their team. Steelers faithful were on Twitter in numbers today following the news and as you can imagine, they were inconsolable.

Here are some the biggest reactions to the news which will certainly prove to be a blow to the entire NFL this season.

Carolina Panthers Fans Brawl As Team Suffers Brutal Loss: Video

The Carolina Panthers fell to 0-2 on the season last night, in a game marred by nasty weather, poor quarterback play and a brawl in a crowded concourse at Bank America Stadium. 

As seen in the footage embedded below, Panthers fans reportedly began fighting one another during the first quarter rain delay. And this was before the Panthers faithful really had something to be angry about, because things only went down hill after the two teams resumed play out on the field.

The Panthers went on to lose to the division rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers by the final 20-14, after the Bucs stuffed Christian McCaffrey at the goal line on a questionable fourth down play call. Tampa Bay’s defense stifled the star running back all night, limiting CMC to just 53 total yards from scrimmage, one week after he lit up the Los Angeles Rams for 200+.

Cam Newton completed just 24 his 50 pass attempts for 324, and he failed to throw a touchdown for the second straight week as it has become clear that he isn’t quite right. After the loss, Newton accepted all the blame, saying, “it’s hard to look defensive guys in the eyes after a game like this.” He added, “All fingers are just pointing back to me specifically on fense.”

After opening the season with back-to-back losses at home, the Panthers will hit the road for matchups with the Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans in Weeks 3 and 4, respectively. 

Chiefs Announce Tyreek Hill’s Timetable For Return Following Clavicle Injury

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is expected to miss 4-6 weeks following a collarbone injury he suffered during the team’s 40-26 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Hill went down early in the Week 1 victory after being tackled on the sideline by Jags corner Jalen Ramsey. He was taken to the hospital as a precaution but the team does not plan to put him on the IR, which would have kept him out action for a minimum eight weeks.

The 25-year old speedster finished with just two catches for 16 yards and one rushing attempt for five yards prior to exiting the game. Last season, Hill posted career-highs across the board with 87 catches, 1,479 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns while earning First Team All Pro honors.

Reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes has plenty weapons at his disposal on the Chiefs fense and it is expected that rookie receiver Mecole Hardman will step into Hill’s role for however long he is sidelined for.

Up next for the Chiefs is another road game against the division rival Oakland Raiders, followed by their home-opener agains the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3.

Nikki Bella Teases Coming Out Of Retirement: Wrestling Fans React

Nikki Bella recently put on her in-ring gear again, giving diehard wrestling fans hope that the former champ might soon be returning to action in the WWE. Unfortunately, those fans shouldn’t hold their breathe.

Nikki, who last wrestled almost a year ago in a match against Ronda Rousey, posted a video on social media Sunday morning, where she showed f her familiar attire and mentioned how she’s “feeling like I need to come out retirement.” However, the 35-year old star quickly added, “Well, I wish … we all know why I can’t,” referencing the neck injuries that forced her out competition.

This begs the question: Why tease the fans by dressing up in her old in-ring gear? Nikki didn’t give an explanation, but teased that she was about to meet someone “super amazing.” Guess her fans will just have to wait and see. 

In the meantime, check out some the reactions to the video in the tweets embedded below.

LeBron James Delivers Shout Out To Lamar Jackson After Heroic Performance

Lamar Jackson received a ton criticism last season in his first year as quarterback the Baltimore Ravens. Some pundits felt as though his throwing ability wasn’t good enough to be a starting quarterback and that he should be played as a running back or receiver instead. During the Ravens’ first game the season against the Miami Dolphins, Jackson proved the doubters wrong as he threw five touchdown passes. picked up 324 yards and completed 85 percent his passes.

While the Dolphins are a pretty horrendous team, there is no denying that Jackson’s performance was exceptional and if you’re a Ravens fan, you have to be encouraged by what you saw. One person who was impressed by Jackson was none other than LeBron James who took to his Instagram story to fer some praise. LeBron said, “not bad for a running back” which is what Jackson jokingly said in his postgame press conference. James ended the shoutout by saying “keep going young king.”

Unfortunately for James, his hometown Cleveland Browns lost to the Tennessee Titans by a score 43-13. It was a shocking result considering people legitimately thought the Browns would be better this season. Either way, this bodes well for Jackson and the Ravens who also play in the AFC North.

Only time will tell whether Jackson can keep up this exceptional pace.

Vinyl On Track To Outsell CDs For First Time In Over 30 Years

As the Recording Industry Association  America (RIAA) generates its mid-year report, it looks like vinyl records are on the way to outselling CD units for the first time in over 30 years.

Currently, vinyl records have earned $224.2 million f 8.6 million units sold in the first half 2019 getting close to the figure $247.9 million that CD sales made f 18.6 million units sold. The report reveals that vinyl revenue grew by 12.8 percent in the second half 2018 and by 12.9 percent in the first half 2019 while CD revenue remained practically stagnant.

Should vinyl continue on its upward attend, it will soon generate more revenue than CD sales. Last year, the RIAA reported that CDs sales were dropping three times as fast as vinyl sales were growing with the latter accounting for more than one-third the revenue coming from physical releases.

The last time that vinyl records ever outsold CDs was in 1986 when LPs moved 58.8 million units compared to 18.6 million CDunits. Once the paradigm shifted, it was former RIAA spokesperson Patricia Heimers who assured the masses that the LP wouldn’t be so easily forgotten. 

“The compact disc is not going to kill the LP,” Heimers told the Orlando Sentinel in ’86. “Everyone is acting prematurely in predicting the LP’s demise. It’s going to be around for a long time. All these choices can live comfortably alongside each other.”

Now, thanks to an increasing interest in the aesthetics nostalgia, Heimers’ prediction is ringing true.

 

 

Nick Foles Suffers Shoulder Injury In Debut For Jacksonville Jaguars

The start for former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles is rough so far in Jacksonville. The newly signed quarterback went down with a shoulder injury earlier today in his regular-season debut with the team. 

Late in the first quarter, the Kansas City Chiefs defensive player Chris Jones drilled Foles hard into the ground. It was clear his shoulder was hurting. Hopefully, the injury isn’t worse than it looks. Luckily it was his non-throwing shoulder. Foles returned to the sidelines later in the game with his left arm in a sling. Backup quarterback, Gardner Minshew subbed into the game in Foles’ place, and with no other active quarterbacks on the roster, it seems like the position is Minshew’s for now.

Injuries have been a struggle for Foles throughout his career and this season with Jacksonville is his most recent shot with a big-time contract. Back in March, he signed a deal for four years at $88 million and a team-record $50.125 million guaranteed. 2019 is the third time Foles has entered a season as the uncontested starting quarterback going forward. In 2014, he was injured midway through the season and in 2015, he was benched.

We’ll have to wait until after the game for more details on Foles’ injury.

Ariana Grande Hopes Mac Miller’s Dealer Gets Locked Up

It’s been a year since we lost Mac Miller, but the law is just catching up to those responsible for his death. Mac overdosed on what he believed were percocet, but what investigators discerned was mostly Fentanyl. Fentanyl being mixed in with other drugs has been the main cause prescription overdoses in the last couple years. The highly potent and dangerous substance can kill a human with a dose as small as the lunula on your pinky nail. 

According to TMZArianna Grande can’t wait for justice to be handed down to Cameron James Pettit, the drug dealer who sold Mac the bad pills. Sources close to Ariana told TMZ that she believes Pettit took advantage someone suffering from addiction and that he should face the harshest consequences possible for his role in Mac’s passing. Pettit was recently arrested and prosecutors claim that he was one three people who supplied Mac with the fentanyl-laced pills. The other two suspects are still being pursued. Grande feels anyone who was involved in supplying Miller those pills should be charged and convicted. Pettit is being held without bond, to which sources claim eases Grande’s mind a little, although the feeling closure won’t really resonate until Pettit is convicted.
