The disgraced quarterback is on a path that ends with him either behind bars http://www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-quincy-williams-ii-jersey , out of work or dead – there is no other way to dress the scenario up. With revelations emerging that the player refused to entered rehabilitation for his drug and alcohol addiction, the picture for Manziel became bleaker when news broke that he assaulted his girlfriend Colleen Crowley.He exhausted all the patience and goodwill the Cleveland Browns could carry until they pulled the plug. Even for an ailing franchise that desperately needs all the talent on the books they can get, the time for action came and a line had to be drawn in the sand. It is one thing to be the national punch line in the NFL, it’s another to have the brand tarnished and embarrassed by the off-field exploits of your supposed “star player” and quarterback.The media has analyzed and picked apart his fall from grace. The common consensus on Manziel’s immediate future has nothing to do with football, even if he is fortunate enough to avoid a jail cell. 2016 is too soon for the 23-year old to be playing football, particularly at NFL level. Without the urgent need to address his alcohol and behavioral issues, coming back into an environment of pressure will only exacerbate the problem further.It is stating the obvious that any franchise would be best advised to steer well clear of any approach to sign the troubled footballer. Of his brief time in the spotlight he’s managed to anger a whole host of people in the industry with abhorrent conduct that verges on the moronic to the downright scandalous. But this is the NFL we’re talking about – giving second, third and fourth chances to these individuals is part of the business model.If, by a miracle, Manziel straightened his attitude and actually acted like a professional then his talent would open doors to a return to the game. This would not necessarily mean the NFL directly, although the alternatives are quite limited on an international scale. Other struggling franchises will see the talent to mold into something special; others already have a strong culture and can use a back up.However much he’s hated in the sport, and all for good reason Ryquell Armstead Jersey , it is unlikely we’ve seen the last of Manziel on a football field. Here are 15 possible future destinations for the quarterback.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Rays continue to win games they perhaps shouldn’t, and they’ll have an opportunity for more of that Saturday against Houston’s Justin Verlander.
The Rays (40-41) hit the midway point of their 2018 season with a 3-2 win over Houston, giving them six wins in their last seven games. Their pitching has led the way — three times in the last four games, they have held their opponent to three hits or less, this after doing so only three times in the first 77 games of this season.
“If we are going to win a lot of game and we are going to string a bunch together, we have to have good pitching,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “The timely hitting is great, but we have to stay in the ballgame. For us to have allowed three runs in 18 innings against arguably the best team in baseball, we should find a way to win one.”
Houston will send Verlander, who has been dominant (9-3, 1.82 ERA) but has gotten surprisingly little run support from a potent Astros lineup.
Houston is just 11-7 in games he starts http://www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-gardner-minshew-ii-jersey , and the Astros have scored a total of two runs in five of those losses.
So Saturday could look like Thursday’s 1-0 Astros win, or could look like Friday’s 3-2 loss, which saw two errors factor in Tampa Bay’s scoring.
Verlander faced the Rays just 11 days ago in Houston, again pitching well, allowing one run on six hits in 6 2/3 innings, but ultimately taking a no-decision in a 2-1 loss. He has 136 strikeouts in 113 innings this season and a ridiculous 0.81 WHIP.
Against the Rays for his career, Verlander is 8-3 with a 3.18 ERA, but since 2010, he’s just 4-3, despite a 1.72 ERA in his last five starts against the Rays. At Tropicana Field, he’s 5-2 all-time with a 2.53 ERA, including a 1.20 ERA in his last two outings.
The Rays counter with reliever-turned-starter Ryne Stanek Marquise Brown Jersey , who has thrived in the “opener” role that Tampa Bay has essentially created in the past six weeks. He’s starting for the second time in three days against the Astros having thrown 1 2/3 innings of scoreless, hitless baseball Thursday night. For the month of June, he’s pitched in 11 games and 14 2/3 innings without allowing a run.
He’s held opponents to just four hits, lowering his season ERA to 1.85, just barely above Verlander’s.
The Astros know they have to be careful with the white ceiling of Tropicana Field — the Rays’ three-run fourth inning got a spark Friday when center fielder Jake Marisnick couldn’t hold onto a pop at the warning track, allowing a run to score.
“When you play here, you try to not take your eye off the ball,” Marisnick said. “With the ceiling, I kind of glanced quickly at the ball, then looked back up and lost track. I wasn’t able to come up with it. That’s a play I need to make 10 out of 10 times.”
