His screen is nothing but text messages and missed calls from his assistants.

Ryan Tannehill spent some time with Gruden at his quarterbacks camp before he was drafted in 2012, but that doesn’t mean Gruden knew how to say his name correctly. It’s pronounced Tann-uh-hill. But Gruden called him Tanny-hill. Close enough.

He also had a boatload of oddly specific and sometimes nonsensical nicknames for players — enough that we’re pretty sure he just came up with things to call them because he forgot their names.

He called current Falcons defensive end and former Buccaneers first-round pick Adrian Clayborn “Light Switch,” which Gruden said was “because he can go from 0 to 80 in a hurry.”

In high school in Wisconsin, I remember a teammate getting hurt in practice, and laying on the field in the middle of a team drill. The whole practice stopped. Everyone wanted to see how the injured guy was doing. When that happens in high school, when someone is hurt seriously, sometimes the practice just ends. But my first year at the University of Wisconsin, I remember a guy going down in practice, and he was in pain laying there on the field, and everybody stopped to look. After a couple of seconds, one of the coaches hollered:

Why am I getting emails from the Cardinals that you traded them our entire starting rotation?!? reads one. Another: Jerry, we can’t acquire literally every pick in the Rule 5 draft. Dipoto licks his chapped lips, gets out of bed, and pulls the curtains slightly aside. It’s blindingly bright outside. I think we need a new sixth outfielder, he absently thinks to himself. His phone starts buzzing.?

Gabriel Baumgaertner: The Winter Meetings didn’t even begin and Jerry Dipoto already traded for Dee Gordon and switched him to a new position. As long as Dipoto is running the Mariners, they’ll always be busy in December.

“Electrifying,” said New England safety Duron Harmon. “We were excited to see him, because it’s letting us know he’s making progress, and that’s what we’ve been praying for.”

And the crowd? Harmon: “It’s the stadium where, as a kid, you dream about playing big games on the road, and having everybody in the stadium against you. That’s the kind of game you want to play in and dream to play in.”

Green Bay has promoted director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst to general manager, the team announced Monday.

As Colson auditioned, any concern that he could handle a larger role evaporated.

Thus this gangly-limbed thespian锟斤拷on his way to being one of the best college basketball players in the country锟斤拷came to be Benny Southstreet. And Bonzie Colson served one of his many reminders about the limitations of expectation.

Until this week, when it was announced that a left foot fracture would shelve Colson until March, he had been center stage for 11-3 Notre Dame, whose offense over this decade has become one of the nation’s most dependable and entertaining productions. And while coach Mike Brey’s attack has usually been an ensemble affair, this season Colson had become its clear leading man.

All of which makes news of his broken foot, suffered Authentic Mark Melancon Jersey in practice last Friday锟斤拷and which Colson played through for 33 minutes in last Saturday’s win over Georgia Tech, but required surgery to fix锟斤拷that much more devastating. Without its all-purpose star, a Notre Dame team whose bench plays the fifth-fewest minutes in the country will suddenly have to reinvent itself on the fly to avoid missing just its third NCAA tournament in the last 12 seasons.

The Falcons will force the Eagles to sustain long drives, so Foles must be patient and get the ball out of his hands quickly on shorter routes. Foles will be in big trouble if the Eagles can’t consistently get to manageable third downs.

On the other side, the Falcons need to go up-tempo as much as possible. The Eagles have a strong front seven and a good pressure package under Jim Schwartz, but they have remained shaky in the secondary all season. Jones and Mohamed Sanu should win their matchups, and some success with Freeman will help in delivering deep shots off play-action.

I’m not a filmofile, but I do recall Frances McDormand’s common-sense greatness from Fargo, and this movie’s brutality reminds me of that one (no wood-chipper here, though). After a cold case of the rape and murder of her daughter is basically abandoned in a small Missouri town, Mildred Hayes (McDormand) begins to attack it. She begins with three billboards in Ebbing, Mo. Thus the title. It’s a bit uncomfortable, but it’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. Go.

To understand the rule, it comes down to this: Why, exactly, is the offense the one that gets screwed? Simple: In those situations, the offense carries more the burden of execution; it is the prosecution to the defense’s, well, defense.

NFL spokesman: League was unaware of Jerry Richardson settlements before report

An NFL executive said Thursday the league did not know Panthers owner Jerry Richardson had paid at least four former team employees to settle claims of workplace misconduct by Richardson until Sports Illustrated reported the payments this week.

The executive, Joe Lockhart, also said those settlements will be examined as part of a broader investigation of allegations against Richardson.

Lockhart told reporters Thursday the league did not pressure Richardson into selling.

Utah adds former Oregon State head coach Gary Andersen to staff

Game Womens Jonathan Allen Jersey Former Oregon State and Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen has been hired at Utah to be a defensive assistant and associate head coach, the school announced Tuesday.

Andersen, who had two other stints at Utah (1997-2002 and 2004-2008), parted ways with Oregon State in October after the Beavers started 1-5.

We’re looking forward to Gary rejoining our staff, Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said in a statement. Gary brings a wealth of high-level coaching experience to the program, including serving as the head coach at two Power Five schools. During his previous time on our staff, he developed some of the best defensive linemen in Utah history.

After two years as the coach at Wisconsin, where he went 19-7, Andersen made the surprising jump to OSU before the 2015 season to replace Mike Riley. He inherited a team devoid of talent but seemingly had the program heading in the right direction coming into the season. The Beavers improved from 2-10 in his first season to 4-8 in Year 2.

Andersen was the head coach at Utah State from 2009 to 2012, where he compiled a 26-24 record, including an 11-2 season in his final year that propelled him to the Wisconsin job.

A 6-foot-5, 340-pound space-eating interior lineman, Vea is projected by ESPN’s Todd McShay to be a first-round draft pick. He was the centerpiece of a Washington defense that allowed the fewest rushing yards in the FBS during the regular season.

As I begin the next chapter of my football career, I will never forget where it all began, he wrote in the post Monday. The University of Washington is a special place. … I cherish every game I was able to play in purple and gold.

The 35-year-old tight end defines reliability and was Dak Prescott’s favorite safety valve Thursday with seven receptions for 44 yards. He already entered the game as the all-time leader in receptions on Thanksgiving and added the receiving yards record to his career résumé too.

Instead of trying a 33-yard field goal with emergency backup Drew Kaser, the Chargers went for a long fourth down and turned the ball over on downs deep in the red zone. Why the Chargers weren’t confident in Kaser wasn’t hard to figure out.

And yet, despite all that, the Chargers may be the AFC’s most interesting team.

In Week 11, they were the only club to step up in a suddenly rudder-less AFC West. A recharged Philip Rivers has cut down on turnovers to give the team a solid offensive foundation. Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram lead a ferocious pass rush that’s getting sacks approximately once every 12 dropbacks. Despite a losing record, the Chargers — losers of four games by three points or fewer — have the talent to take any team to the limit.

While that’s cherry-picking, it’s a showcase of the drastic improvement the club has made since its disappointing start. The uprising has started in the secondary, where Malcolm Butler, Stephon Gilmore, and Devin McCourty have returned to form. Better-than-expected contributions from players like Johnson Bademosi and Jonathan Jones have helped an overtaxed group snap back into form; after allowing 325 passing yards per game in their first six games, the Patriots have given up 205 per contest in their last five.
