Why are NFL teams using those pop-up medical tents on their sidelines?

Posted on by

The NFL is taking a new approach toward diagnosing injuries, particularly concussions, on the playing field, and it’s going to take up some prime real estate on the field level.

The Cowboys were riding high after Week 1’s win over the hapless Giants. Then they lost to the Broncos in a 42-17 blowout, and it raises a fair question: Is this Cowboys team destined for yet another early exit from the playoffs?

It’s become a hallmark of this Dallas team. The Cowboys haven’t made it past the Divisional Round since 1995, and last year’s 13-3 team lost a heartbreaker to the Green Bay Packers in divisional play after earning the top seed in the NFC and a first-round bye.

Hopes were high for this team heading into the season. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott both had stellar rookie seasons, and Dallas boasts the best offensive line in the league. The team made moves this offseason to shore up the other side of the ball. The NFC East isn’t exactly shaping up to be the strongest division. Even considering how the Cowboys looked against the Broncos, there’s no reason to think this team can’t get to the postseason again.

Rockets owner Leslie Alexander initially pledged $4 million to relief, matching the Astros’ donation — but upped that on Tuesday to $10 million. The team’s initial statement said:

“Out hearts are heavy seeing the devastation that so many of our friends, family and neighbors are experiencing,” the Rockets said in a statement. “Leslie Alexander has contributed $4 million to Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund in an effort to help Clutch City come back stronger than ever. Please stay safe, Houston.”

You guys beat the Cowboys twice last year.

New England enjoys the NFL’s largest average weekly advantage at QB, defined as the difference between Brady’s average Tier figure (1.0) and the averages for New England’s opponents (2.82). It’s tough finding likely defeats on the Patriots’ schedule. I had them going 12-0 before losing back-to-back road games during a six-day stretch as part of a three-game road trip in December.

Second, DraftKings is full PPR scoring, so I also want to pick out running backs who have some involvement in their team’s passing game. Backs that play first and second down but don’t rack up any catches have a much tougher path to reaching value.

He’s a competitor, always going 110 percent. He’s proved why he should be one of the highest-paid tight ends. Every time I lined up against him, he was giving it to me, and I had to make sure I gave it back. His route-running isn’t superb, but he gets open somehow, and he has great hands. He goes up and attacks the ball, not letting it fall into his hands so that a DB can make a play on it.

You played against Dak Prescott in college. Is he legit or a product of a great situation?

He’s definitely gotten smarter coming into the league. He’s always been a great leader and competitor. When I was a junior at Alabama, he took a [Mississippi State] team that was not even on the map and he got them to No. 1 in the rankings. And the same thing happened when he came into the NFL — he almost went undefeated. He has that type of leadership, that background that says “I’m not going to settle.”download
