    J.J. Watt is 'trying' to find a girlfriend, but is unsuccessful

  • Night net null null 夜网论坛 Texans star J.J. Watt is admired by a lot of people, but he told Night net.com that he's struggling to find love.Watt said he's trying, and someday he wants to settle down with a wife and kids, but right now he has a busy schedule that doesn't allow much social time. He opened up about his dating life, or lack thereof. MORE: Photos for would-be Watt suitors | Watt on MTV's 'College Life'"People [I know] think that I've never dated before, or whatever," he said. "But I'm trying. I'm trying. I'm just unsuccessful. My schedule's so crazy and life's so busy, it just hasn't worked. "Trust me, I would love to have a wife and kids. I would very much enjoy that. But I also know that you have to be in the right place to do that. You have to find the right situation, and you have to be in that right mindset where you can give everything you have to that. Because whatever I do, I want to be the best at. I want to be the best husband. I want to be the best father. And I need to make sure that I have figured out the proper balance in my life so that I can give the proper time and energy that's needed for that situation." That makes sense. Watt has clearly given his all to become the Night net's best defensive player — an honor he was given last year. But putting in all that work to be the best at his craft leaves him with little time to focus on other aspects of his life.Another reason Watt is hesitant is because he's not sure about the motives some women might have when making advances towards him. Do they want to date him to become "J.J. Watt's girlfriend" or do they actually want to get to know the real person?MORE: Watt as a magazine cover boy, behind the scenes"That's why it's so difficult. You don't know who wants you for you, who wants you for the money, who wants you for the fame," he said. "... But you can't think about love on paper like that. If you're thinking like that — Does this person want me for me? — then you're gonna have a hell of a hard time falling in love, 'cause you're constantly thinking about what they look like on paper. Trust me, it's a lot more difficult than I wish it was — but I'm sure hoping to find the right one."There were rumors of Watt dating tennis star Caroline Wozniacki as the two were seen together during the offseason, but the Texans star seemed to imply they weren't dating.[......]

    Night net knows circus sells, re-brands Super Bowl Media Day

  • Night net If there's a dollar to be made or a viewer to be had, the Night net will find a way to get it. Why else would the league move and re-brand its annual Super Bowl Media Day? This season, Super Bowl 50 festivities in the San Francisco Bay Area will kick off in primetime — beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET and lasting three hours on Monday, Feb. 1  — at "Super Bowl Opening Night Fueled by Gatorade." MORE: SN's Super Bowl pick | AFC predictions | NFC predictions Surprisingly, no confetti bursts out of your computer or mobile device when you read the league's announcement.   "We are excited to enhance an annual event and provide a unique experience for more fans in both the San Francisco Bay Area and nationwide, while continuing to provide access to the Super Bowl teams for media from around the world," Night net senior vice president of events Peter O'Reilly said in a release. "By elevating the event to primetime, fans across the country can experience even more of the excitement of Super Bowl leading up to the game."The league also announced that gift bags will be distributed to fans in attendance at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., and the bags will include a radio to tune into Night net Network coverage. How nice!Those fans, like last year in Arizona, must pay up to $30 for a ticket to sit in an arena and watch this:Super Bowl Media Day will be at night this year. Media Day was the best damn fire hazard I've ever been to. pic.twitter.com/M2XoHft2wv— Michael Hurley (@michaelFhurley) September 1, 2015The Night net an夜网论坛d its Teflon shield, of course, have little reason not to maximize viewership and revenue — you'll watch regardless. Remember last season's Media Day quote that became a nationwide talking point?What's even worse about obsessing whether Marshawn Lynch will speak during Super Bowl Media Day? Obsessing about it in prime time.— SN's Vinnie Iyer (@vinnieiyer) September 1, 2015There's a persistent, underlying theme of greed in the way the league operates. Nobody in football operations of an Night net franchise likes anything about Thursday Night Football, but you'll see it each week. You'll also continue to pay full ticket prices for meaningless preseason games. The league fined Marshawn Lynch for the same gesture that was featured in a photo sold on the Night net's website. The same greed is rooted in this move. The Night net has noticed how events around the Super Bowl produce so many memorable quotes and moments, most of which have nothing to do with the championship game. The event originally intended to provide worldwide media members a chance to speak with and learn about the athletes and coaches involved in the game has been more of a circus for a while, and the league knows circus sells.Now the intent is for the event to compete with "Dancing With the Stars" and "The Voice" as entertainment in its purest form. The thrill of a ratings battle on Tuesday afternoon against "[......]

    Who is Brice Butler? Scouting the newest Dallas Cowboys WR

  • Night net null null null The Cowboys traded Tuesday for Raiders wide receiver Brice Butler to help fill in for injured Dez Bryant. Here is a look at Butler:MORE: 5 reasons why the Cowboys will survive without Dez Bryant | Fantasy impact of Bryant's injury  Name: Brice ButlerHeight: 6-3 Weight: 215College: San Diego State (after graduating from Southern Cal in 2011)High school: Norcross (Ga.)Drafted: 207th overall by Oakland, 2013Career totals (two seasons): 30 receptions, 383 yards, 12.8 ypc (long: 55 yards), 2 touchdowns.Scouting report (via dallascowboys.com): "Brice Butler has all the measureables that scouts look for in a receiver. He’s listed with 4.39 speed coming out of college, but when you watch him play, it takes him a few strides before he is hitting top gear. … He's got some versatility the Cowboys' coaches will value, as the tape shows him hav夜网论坛ing experience to both line up at the 'X' — Dez Bryant's primary position — as well as in the slot. For a tall guy, he’s got a knack for making tacklers miss in space. He has talent to be more than just a flash player, but I would like to see him be more consistent with the opportunities that he gets."The knocks: "Brice Butler jumps off the tape," Browns coach Mike Pettine said (via ESPN.com) before an October matchup last season. "I know he doesn't get a ton of touches, but when he does, he's a major threat." For all that promise, why was he buried by two different Raiders coaching staffs in Oakland? The Bay Area News Group suggested during the offseason that he simply makes too many mental errors.Fantasy take: Butler can't be counted on to make an immediate impact in the passing game. He will fight Cole Beasley and Devin Street for playing time at the second wide receiver spot. To compensate for Bryant's absence, the Cowboys instead are expected to use a larger array of 12 personnel packages — featuring a second tight end, Gavin Escobar or James Hanna, in addition to Jason Witten.[......]

"We went through an entire offseason, we competed, and at the end of the day I did the best I could with the reps that I got and they made a decision to go a different direction," Cassel told the newspaper Friday, a day before he was cut.But the 33-year-old clearly makes for a nice security blanket and potential mentor as he enters his 11th Night net season.To make room for Cassel on the 53-man roster, the Bills released tight end Nick O'Leary, a sixth-round draft pick this year out of Florida State and grandson of golf great Jack Nicklaus.[......]

    Tom Brady’s four-game suspension thrown out by judge

  • Night net null Tom Brady has been freed.After eight months of accusations, investigations, findings, destroyed cell phones and settlement talks, Judge Richard Berman ruled on Thursday to throw out the Night net's four-game suspension of Brady for his alleged role in Deflategate. MORE: Brady's path from draft day steal to Deflategate | Deflategate proves it: Night net is biggest loser That means Brady will be under center for New England when it opens its season next Thursday night against the Steelers. Brady was seeking full exoneration from the league, but was reportedly willing to settle for a one-game ban for not cooperating with the Ted Wells Report that ruled Brady to be generally aware of the deflation of footballs he used during the AFC Championship Game against the Colts — a 45-7 Patriots win.However, Brady and the Night net never met in the middle as the league and commissioner Roger Goodell reportedly wanted Brady to admit he had a role in the actual deflation of footballs. Related News New England Patriots' Super Bowl XLIX victory parade While Brady, 38, defended his entire innocence, the Night netPA argued that even if he was proven guilty, a four-game suspension was excessive and unprecedented.

    Cowboys need Brandon Weeden to play a role others have filled

  • Night net null null null Brett Favre, Kurt Warner, Tom Brady and … Brandon Weeden?OK, maybe that’s a stretch. While nobody believes Weeden will step in for the injured Tony Romo and permanently supplant him as the Cowboys starting quarterback, Weeden may be able to keep the Cowboys afloat long enough for Romo to return in about eight weeks. MORE: Night net backup QB confidence meter | No surgery for Romo | Top free-agent QBsAfter Romo suffered a broken collarbone in Sunday’s 20-10 win over the Eagles, We夜网论坛eden completed all seven of his passes for 73 yards and a 42-yard touchdown strike to Terrance Williams. Several teams through the Night net’s history have seen their starting quarterback go down, only to watch the backup step in and find career-long success.— After Packers quarterback Don Majkowski went down with an injured ankle on Sept. 20, 1992, Favre entered the game and led Green Bay to a come-from-behind 24-23 win over the Bengals. Majkowski never started another game for the Packers and Favre’s legendary career was born.— During a preseason game in 1999 against the Chargers, Rams starter Trent Green suffered a horrendous knee injury. Warner replaced him and, five months later, the Rams were celebrating the franchise’s first-ever Super Bowl championship.— After Drew Bledsoe was knocked out of a loss to the Jets on Sept. 24, 2001, Brady went in and eventually led the Patriots to a win over Warner’s Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV.Favre, Warner and Brady will all be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The only way Weeden is getting in is with a ticket. But the 31-year-old quarterback, who was a first-round draft pick by the Browns in 2012, can play the role that Earl Morrall, Jeff Hostetler, Vince Ferragamo and Jim Plunkett have previously filled.The Dolphins went undefeated during the 1972 season thanks to a suffocating defense, a powerful ground game and a quarterback in Bob Griese who knew how to manage a game and protect the ball. But when Griese broke his ankle in a Week 5 game against the Chargers, 38-year-old Morrall came in and completed 8 of 10 passes for 86 yards and two touchdowns. He started the next nine games and finished the season with 1,360 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Morrall started Miami’s two playoff games before Griese returned as a substitute in the AFC championship game and started the Super Bowl win over the Redskins.Hostetler stepped in for an injured Phil Simms late in the 1990 season. With the Giants at 11-2, many were worried if the career backup could keep the Giants on a championship track. But “Hoss” led the Giants to wins in their final two games,[......]
