Getty Images Now we turn our attention to what could be the most interesting draft story in a generation: Who falls in love with 5-foot-9 7/8 (in his stocking feet) quarterback Kyler Murray, who now seems likely to be the first athlete ever drafted in the top 10 in two sports? To begin to answer the question, start at ground zero. Dispel what you think you know about Murray—unless, of course, you’ve scouted him thoroughly or saw every game Oklahoma played last season. Because a sub-5-10 quarterback who runs the 40-yard dash in less than 4.4 seconds, ran the ball 140 times last fall and has quickness in Tyreek Hill’s league would naturally be a scrambling, throw-on-the-run type of player, right? “What percentage of the time,” I asked Oklahoma coach and Murray mentor Lincoln Riley the other day, “would you guess Kyler threw from the pocket this year?” Riley thought for a few seconds. “Eighty-five percent?” Riley said. “Ninety, … [Read more...] about FMIA: Kyler Murray and One Coach’s Argument For Why The Small QB Will Have a Massive Impact in the NFL

Any given Sunday, it seems, for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as he scored his 14th Premier League goal in the 16 games he has played for the club on the Sabbath to earn Arsenal a precious victory away against Bournemouth. It consolidated Arsenal in fifth place in the league but, more importantly, meant they are looking up the table rather than down as they closed the gap to fourth-placed Chelsea to just a single point. Maybe qualifying for the Champions League is not that unrealistic, after all. Arsenal also know that if they win next weekend’s north London derby at home they will go above Tottenham Hotspur on goal difference. After three league draws head coach Unai Emery needed this victory and he also has the satisfaction of being vindicated in his decision to drop Mesut Ozil and also change his team’s formation with a three-man defence.

Peter King/NBC Sports NEW ORLEANS — “This is the first time in NFL history a play like this has been run from this formation! Ever!” jovial Saints coach Sean Payton called out to his offensive team Saturday night in a second-floor ballroom at the Ritz-Carlton on Canal Street. This was a man in love with his job. The NFL’s state-of-the-art offense was doing a final walk-through in the Salon II ballroom before facing the Eagles on Sunday in the Superdome. (New Orleans embarrassed Philadelphia, 48-7, the worst loss ever by a defending Super Bowl champion.) Quite a sight, as the players lined up and walked/slow-jogged through the first 15 plays they planned to run in the game. Alvin Kamara, wearing flip-flops, black socks and a red hoodie obscuring much of his face. Brees, in shorts, untied sneakers and a black T-shirt pumping his FNA co-ed flag football league. Payton, in a blue pullover, playing defense. Payton called out the name of Sunday’s bizarre play: … [Read more...] about FMIA Week 11—Embedded in New Orleans: The Ritz, the Rout and the Reason the Saints Are Unstoppable
