    The government has arrested a man accused of providing the gun used in the fatal shooting of two Ohio police officers.

    Federal prosecutors say Gerald Lawson of suburban Cleveland is accused of buying the handgun for shooting suspect Quentin Smith last summer. A criminal complaint filed against Lawson in federal court Monday says Smith gave Lawson the money to buy the gun along with $100 for completing the transaction.

    It was not clear whether a lawyer had been appointed yet for Lawson. He was due in federal court Monday afternoon. As a felon convicted previously of burglary, Smith was prevented from having a weapon.

    Mohamed Massaquoi was a second-round pick in the 2009 draft because of his ability to catch a football, but he lost one of the hands that helped in that task after an ATV accident.

    Massaquoi revealed the prosthetic he now wears in place of most of his left hand — his thumb is intact — in a video for The Players Tribune on Monday. Massaquoi described taking a turn too sharply on the ATV early last year and feeling like an explosion went off in his hand.

    you can sign Davis anytime

    Cornerback Vontae Davis saw his time with the Colts end abruptly last November when the team released him amid a disagreement about how much Davis was being bothered by a core muscle injury.

    The Colts said he was healthy and wasn’t playing well, but Davis wound up having surgery after getting dropped from the roster in Indianapolis. There was initially some hope that he could return to action before the end of the season, but that did not come to pass.

    Davis’ return to active status could come soon, however. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Davis has been medically cleared to resume football activities. Since Davis was released, he is eligible to sign with a team before the new league year starts on March 14 and Schefter reports teams are expected to be interested.

            Once scout and the combine said he gave the worst interview he’s ever seen. Blamed his MSU coaching staff for lack of production. Claimed they eventually came around to his ideas because they couldn’t make him better than he was. Said he could play safety.

            Subsequently was arrested, cussed out cops, and his entire career is in jeopardy as a result of an ATV crash prior to rookie training camp.

    The Jaguars are serious about rebranding themselves, now that they’re actually good at football.

    In addition to today’s announcement that they’re removing the tarps from EverBank Field (and raising ticket prices almost 11 percent), they also said they’re getting new uniforms and helmets for the 2018 season, which will be unveiled later this spring.

    Jaguars will raise ticket prices, remove tarps in 2018
    Posted by Michael David Smith on February 12, 2018, 11:31 AM EST

    After years of covering thousands of empty seats with tarps, the Jaguars are popular enough in Jacksonville again to sell tickets for the whole stadium — and to charge more for those tickets.

    The Jaguars, who pulled out the tarps for their home playoff game last month, will also remove the tarps for the regular season in 2018. The team announced that today, along with the news that the average ticket price will increase by around 11 percent.

    Jaguars owner Shad Khan has long said he hopes the team will be able to remove the tarps and fill EverBank Field. For many years the Jaguars have limited attendance to about 64,000, but when they pulled out the tarps for their playoff game against the Bills the Jaguars drew more than 69,000.

    Despite their newfound ability to fill their stadium, the Jaguars are still committed to playing one “home” game per year in London. In 2018 they will play the Eagles at Wembley Stadium.

    • Steve Thomas

      The economics of the London game actually work out for a team like Jacksonville that has ticket issues at home.

      • AustinSkin

        That’s a fun stadium to watch a game in. Love the swimming pool.

    The account comes from deputies at the scene of the shooting and at least three witnesses, still under investigation from DA office, a ruling is expected soon:

    Before his fatal encounter with sheriff’s deputies, dispatchers received an anonymous 911 call about a man beating a woman at a gas station. Deputies responded to the scene of the assault at Marathon, 2927 Cortez Road at 9:20 p.m., but Mobley fled before they arrived, the caller said.

    A deputy located Mobley within a few minutes but he did not stop when the deputy attempted to pull him ever. By 9:27 p.m., two other deputies spotted Mobley and gave chase to the 6300 block of Sixth Street West in Bradenton, according to Wells.

    That’s when Mobley exited his white Chrysler 300 and took off running through backyards, hopping fences along the way. A K-9 named Boss tracked Mobley through the neighborhood and Drymon confronted him.

    According to Wells, Mobley then allegedly told the deputy, “I have a gun for you (expletive).”

    Mobley ignored numerous commands to show his hands, instead reaching into his waistband as he continued to say he was armed, according to the sheriff’s office. Drymon — then in fear for his own life, Wells said — fired two shots. Mobley fell to the ground but quickly got back up and again told the deputy he had a gun.

    Drymon fired two more shots, and Mobley collapsed to the ground. Mobley was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, where he died shortly after the shooting.

  • Steve Thomas

    On another note, someone please explain to me what was so special about the triple axel jump that the skater did last night. For the life of me, I can’t tell the difference in all of these ice skating routines. It all looks the same to me. The skaters jump up and spin, then skate around a bit, then stay on the ice and spin. I guess this is why I’ve never been able to watch Dancing with the Stars, either.

    • No Punt Intended

      I thought we were doing quads these days.

      Slackers.

    • alex35332

      There is nothing special about any of it.

    • noonefromtampa

      I can’t tell an Alex Foley from an Inspector Lutz

      • No Punt Intended

        Neither would fall for the banana in the tailpipe anyway.

    • kon, for now

      ‘The axel is typically regarded as the the most difficult figure skating jump. The single axel
      is the first jump that requires more than one full rotation in the
      air. The axel takes off from a forward outside edge, rotates in the
      direction of the take-off edge, and lands on the opposite foot on a back
      outside edge. Contrary to popular belief, the axel DOES NOT rotate 1
      1/2 times in the air. Total rotation of the entire element is roughly 1
      1/2 revolutions, but some of that is actually accomplished on the ice.

      The axel is particularly challenging because few skaters learning the
      jump have proper control of the forward outside edge needed for
      take-off. The double axel is especially challenging
      for more advanced skaters because it requires significantly more
      athleticism and control than any other double jump. In terms of skill,
      it more closely resembles a triple jump than the other doubles. Also,
      skaters learning a double axel often have ingrained bad habits from
      years of doing single axels incorrectly, making the jump that much
      harder. Even now, more than 50 years after they were first landed, the triple axel is a rare accomplishment of only the most athletic and skilled figure skaters.’

    1. You should not use always and never in logical arguments because things generally are not black or white
    2. I never posited that cops were always right or they would not lie
    3. From observation, the vast majority of criminals will only tell the truth when there is some benefit in it for them
    4. Like with any profession, there are good and bad workers, most police forces work hard to eliminate the bad workers
    5. There is a disproportionate amount of shootings involving the police and minorities in this country
    6. Some minorities think disrespecting police officers increases their cultural credibility which can exacerbate situations
    7. I think many police forces don’t do enough training on deescalation and non-lethal takedowns
    8. I don’t think you understand the meaning of generic

    • Steve Thomas

      I can say this much. From my time in a DA’s office, in my experience, 99.99% of people charged actually committed the offense for which they were charged. They couldn’t always be convicted because of evidentiary standards, rights violations, etc. – properly so; that’s why we have a justice system and the beyond a reasonable doubt standard – but the number of folks who were completely innocent is remarkably small. At least in my experience.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Completely innocent, and not guilty as charged, are two different things.

        • Steve Thomas

          I believe that’s precisely what I said.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Oh I get it, you and Noone can do that, but not I…….lol, COS

        This isn’t a question of whether the guy who was killed was innocent or guilty of the crime, but of whether lethal force was justified.

        • Steve Thomas

          If you’re brandishing a firearm at the police, lethal force is justified, and yes, I do give the police the benefit of the doubt.

          • Flounder

            Agreed

          Most of the time the people deciding if lethal force was necessary is someone who has never been in a life or death situation and has no idea of what there talking about.

    • Different_Cat

      What you did was mock people protesting a fatal police shooting, where there is apparently very little objective evidence concerning whether or not it was justified, and you did it on the basis that the cops were clearly telling the truth (despite no objective evidence offered) and the protesters were wrong and just a bunch of flaky liberals.

        he was good man — who beat his wife
        there was no cause for this — he ran from the police

        the outcome was horrible but easily avoidable

        it’s like the idiots you see on TV all the time claiming that “you got no right to pull me over” and then police list 3-5 things they did like traffic violations, equipment deficiencies, etc

        and still tell the police I know my rights and you got no right to pull me over

    To clear things up, the confusion about run/pass option and read option on the show was because I mistakenly interchanged the terms at least once, maybe twice.

  • No Punt Intended

    I think CT comes back as effective as he was in 2017 for 2 reasons: His success was due to becoming confident in his understanding of the system; which he mentioned himself. Next and just as key, his injury was a broken bone as opposed to ligaments or tendons or cartilage. He came a long way to make it to that point last year and I do not see him letting himself be anything less that he was as a star in 2017.

    • btg

      Agreed
      Lewis is a clone and just as injury prone

      • No Punt Intended

        I am not going to refer to CT’s broken leg as a result of being injury prone. He got rolled up on. His snapped twig was not a result of past injuries or due to some perceived fragility. Freak injury to me.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Quick, grab the phone

        • alex35332

          It’s something to bemoan when you’re shown how quick a player can fall from greatness, when they thought they were still atop that throne.

            Ooooooooooooooo, the guitar solo!

    • Steve Thomas

      They’re going to have to add some more weapons to this team, or otherwise defenses are going to key on him as basically the only threat (assuming Reed will be injured). Also, Gruden’s going to have to stop telegrpahing his usage of CT.

      • HTTRsince65

        yes, these aren’t the hogs of old when they’d tell the defense riggo was coming, and they still couldn’t stop it…

      • No Punt Intended

        Agreed. CT is not a full-time, 3-down back. Never was in my mind anyway.

        • HTTRsince65

          of course he isn’t…too small

  • Different_Cat

    My take is, quit hoping that Jay is going to change his stripes and commit to a traditional running game. Instead, get enough CT-type RBs to where we can use them on 1st and 2nd down. I think that would open up Jay’s offense a lot and eliminate those wasted 1st down plays where one of our pluggers dives into the back of the OL for a 1 yd gain.

        I’m more inclined to agree with this^ draft a runningback

        • Different_Cat

          Me too — deep RB draft — but if we can get a FA bargain I’d be okay with that too.

      • Steve Thomas

        To be fair to Mark, the question on the show to him was geared towards available free agents, not draft choices. He wrote a piece about it at WaPo last week.

        • HTTRsince65

          huge drop off after Bell imo at rb.

          • Steve Thomas

            I think he didn’t mention Bell because (1) he most likely won’t make it to free agency, and (2) he’d be way out of our price range. That’s why I didn’t ask about Bell.

          • HTTRsince65

            agreed, just stating of the potential free agent running backs, Bell is by far the best, if available. 2nd place is a huge drop off

  • noonefromtampa

    FWIW the read-option and Pederson’s run-pass option are not the same thing

    • walter_in_fallschurch

      i clearly distinguished between “read option” and “run-pass option”.

      • walter_in_fallschurch

        i just love the “option” plays where the play is not determined before the snap. let’s see how they actually defend it, during the play – not just pre-snap – and adjust.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        You bundled them. I had a similar experience with him yesterday, in regards to my Nassar post.

    • alex35332

      To me they mean 2 different things.

      Read Option – QB plans to hand ball off in shotgun/pistol, decides to run it himself or RB based on single DE read, going inside or outside with the run.

      Run-Pass Option – QB plans to hand ball off in shotgun/pistol, decides to run with RB or keep the ball and pass it based on if the DE bites on the pass.

      Obviously the difference would be in a R-P-O you’re going to have WR’s running passing routs, where the RO they are probably blocking.

      Then you have the zone passing stuff that RGIII did his rookie year, where you basically just did a single read on the OLB to decide if a ball went to the TE or slot WR.

      • walter_in_fallschurch

        of course they are different plays. sorry for mentioning 2 related concepts in the same post….

    ========================================================
    not 100% there is a site that tracks the 1st round picks and there are a couple of people who do a really good job

    the big issue is when there are trades which are hard to predict so like in 2017 the CHI trade blew out everyone’s mock draft predictions (and even CHI HC Fox did not see that trade coming)

      Nope you don’t, but most coordinators or head coaches are stubborn and don’t adapt.

      • walter_in_fallschurch

        seems to me like it’s an almost-guaranteed 6+ yards. that’s a good play.

        • Flounder

          True

          • walter_in_fallschurch

            and it totally f’s with the defense’s heads.

          • HTTRsince65

            Defenses figure stuff out and qb’s will get killed relying on that. every now and then, great, not full time

          • walter_in_fallschurch

            for the read-option, i’m not asking the qb to be heroic and go for 80 yards every time. 5 yards and get down, or out of bounds. 5-8 times a game. read-option sets up a lot of other stuff and f’s with defenses. and, then, you saw foles, nick freakin foles, do the run-pass option numerous times.

    • alex35332

      The best way to stop the RPO stuff may actually be Greg M’s system of a read-reaction assignment based defense.

    • Different_Cat

      I was told that defenses caught up to all that in 2013. I reckon no one told the Eagles.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        Those two are not comparable, period.

  • btg

    I looked at the twitter accounts for both ZBrown and JGallette
    Not sure what was said I couldn’t find anything

    • alex35332

      Both have been vague booking their negotiations. Things that make it look like “Maybe” they have something in the works.

      • Flounder

        Brown will want to hit FA’s although not to worried about it since he was better last year and not injured and didn’t get any offers.

  • No Punt Intended

    Cooley made a good point this morning re Alex Smith coming to the team when he mentioned, at this stage of his career, Jay really needs to adapt more to Alex than relying on Alex to adapt himself to the Skins’ offense thusly letting go of what’s made him so valuable over the years and have to learn and think all over again during that learning period.

    • HTTRsince65

      I don’t see much separation between AS and KC. Perhaps a bit more mobility? Older.

        • HTTRsince65

          That’s hilarious!

          I guess where I’m at is, since we weren’t keeping KC, I’d have rather kept our draft pick and Fuller, gone with Colt and drafted a qb. We’re not a SB team now imo and AS isn’t gonna get it done anyway.

        • Josh RosenSquinns

          That’s funny, but it actually hits the nail on the head (previously wasn’t able to verbalize what I didn’t like/love about Cousins). He’s a pussy.

          • HTTRsince65

            I do seem to recall his(KC’s) wife saying something about wanting him to be more fearless like when he was at Michigan State. Something like that.

    I watched some of the Biathlon yesterday. Which frankly should be way more popular than it is. But I think I’ve figured out why some sports struggle with coverage, and it’s bad camera angles.
    So much of the Biathlon is shot in closeups, that you never get a great sense of the scope of how far and fast they are skiing, and the distances of the shots.

    • walter_in_fallschurch

      that’s a fun one to watch. there is still a subjective aspect in that there is some sort of arbitrary penalty for a missed shot.

      • alex35332

        Yeah I don’t get that.

        • walter_in_fallschurch

          biathalon is cool in that you can totally see its origin as northern people going out hunting. ski, ski, ski, ski, ski, shoot. ski, ski, ski, ski, ski, shoot.

      • Josh RosenSquinns

        I think there are plenty of people that aren’t happy that we let Fuller go to get Alex Smith; however, I believe many of them understand that it was necesary to get Alex Smith, and that, in the grand scheme of things, it was more important to get Alex Smith.

        • kon, for now

          Crazy talk.

        • HTTRsince65

          Was Alex Smith the only option? I mean, could we have kept our draft pick and Fuller and rolled with Colt while drafting a qb? Or is Alex Smith the Leader to finally get us to the SB? I just don’t see much separation between AS and KC.

          • Josh RosenSquinns

            No, but quite possibly, the best.

  • Bad Reputation

    Well according to Tandler we won’t be very active in FA.

    “With about $31 million in salary cap space, how aggressively will the Redskins hit the free agent market? I think that the priority will be to give extensions to Jamison Crowder, Brandon Scherff and perhaps Preston Smith and to re-sign Zach Brown. Extensions of fourth-year players generally carry relatively low first-year cap hits, so even if they get all of that done, they still should have around $18 million left. They probably want to go into the season with about $8 million and they will need a couple of million to sign their draft picks. They can fit a couple of mid-tier players with the other $8 million. So, to answer the original question, not very aggressive.”

    • walter_in_fallschurch

      i’ll be really disappointed if zach brown gets away.

      • HTTRsince65

        He’s easily replaced, just like Fuller. We got this!
