Carr completed passes to eight different receivers, and has demonstrated when teams roll coverages toward Darren Waller (two catches, 52 yards), he is capable of distributing the ball elsewhere.

first_imgNew Delhi: The Election Commission on Tuesday issued notification for the sixth and penultimate phase of Lok Sabha elections to be held on May 12 in 59 seats across seven states.The seven-phase elections began on April 11 and will end on May 19. Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal will head for voting in all the seven phases of the general elections. All the seven seats in Delhi will also go for polling in the sixth phase. Amid sparring between Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Aam Admi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Twitter, sources claimed the two sides were “engaged” in taking the alliance talks forward and are likely to meet again on Wednesday over seat sharing between the two. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The Congress chief said his party is willing to give four of the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi to the AAP to ensure that their alliance defeats the BJP, which had won all the seven seats in 2014. The Congress has offered the AAP 4:3 seat-sharing formula, four Lok Sabha seats for the ruling party and three seats for itself. The arrangement has been arrived at on basis of the vote share of both parties in 2017 civic polls here. The election will pit the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance against mostly different opposition groupings in various states, including of Congress, the Left and regional forces which are continuing to work out a grand alliance to minimise a division of votes against the saffron party. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KThe BJP has worked out a seat-sharing formula with some new allies and several old partners. However, opposition parties are yet to do so in several states. With the issuance of notification, the process of filing nominations has begun. The last date of filing nominations is April 24, while scrutiny will take place on on April 24. The last date of withdrawing from the electoral battle is April 26. The poll for the sixth phase will be held on May 12. Some of the constituencies gong to poll are: Valmiki Nagar, Paschim Champaran, Purvi Champaran, Sheohar, Vaishali, Gopalganj, Siwan and Maharajganj in Bihar. In Uttar Pradesh, Sultanpur, Pratapgarh, Phulpur, Allahabad, Ambedkar Nagar, Shrawasti, Domariyaganj, Basti, Sant Kabir Nagar, Lalganj, Azamgarh, Jaunpur, Machhlishahr and Bhadohi are going for polls. Like Delhi, Lok Sabha elections will be held in a single phase in Haryana also.

The NFL draft starts Thursday night, and during the coverage you’ll probably hear about safe and risky picks. In some cases, the risk is specific to the player. Perhaps Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is a risk for his history of alleged off-the-field misconduct, while his counterpart at Oregon, Marcus Mariota, comes with worries that his stock was inflated by the Ducks’ spread offense. But some of the risk is also considered intrinsic to certain positions, while other positions carry a reputation for being particularly low-risk.The trouble, though, is that there’s no way to prove which positions consistently offer good returns on draft investment — at least not with football data in its current state. And in large part, that’s because we can’t really evaluate on player performance as accurately for the so-called non-skill positions.For instance, taking a quarterback (like Winston and Mariota) might seem like a hazardous bet to make early in the draft. But it’s possible that QBs only appear risky relative to other positions because we can more readily measure a quarterback’s performance statistically. In other words, when Ryan Leaf posts a 39.0 quarterback rating as a rookie, he’s easy to identify as a bust, but his linebacking equivalent might be harder to recognize.Here’s another example. You could use Pro-Football-Reference’s Approximate Value (AV) to estimate the odds that a player’s performance1We’re looking at the first five seasons of a player’s career. will live up to the expectations of where he was drafted, and break those numbers down by position:You’d find that the average offensive lineman2Weighted by the expected value of the pick, so that successful high picks are rewarded more — and highly-touted disappointments are more heavily penalized. meets or exceeds the median AV expected of his draft slot about 59 percent of the time — the NFL-wide average across all positions is, by definition, 50 percent — while the average receiver3Lumping together wide receivers and tight ends. provides positive value for his pick slot only 41 percent of the time. And quarterbacks wouldn’t be far behind receivers on the “risky” list, beating expectations at a rate of only 43 percent.But there’s another clear pattern in the AV data: The positions that seem like the riskiest picks are also the ones where we have the most data to differentiate between good and bad performances. Coincidence? Probably not.An offensive lineman’s AV is based solely on his team’s offensive performance, his own playing time and any accolades he receives (like Pro Bowl or All-Pro nods). So, short of being outright benched, there’s very little he could do to distinguish himself negatively under the structure of the study above (or those like it). A skill-position player struggling to meet expectations, on the other hand, can be identified via his inferior yardage, touchdowns, turnovers and the like. (To the extent that those metrics are even good descriptors of player performance.)It’s similar to the phenomenon that causes linemen to boast a far higher Pro Bowl “retention rate” than other offensive positions, particularly quarterbacks. The less information voters have to go on, the more they rely on a player’s priors (and perhaps rightly so). And the same can go for the draft, where certain positions can feel safer simply because we don’t have glaring, easily-quantifiable evidence to the contrary.The answer, of course, is more data. When Chase Stuart conducted a more granular (if anecdotal) look at offensive tackles using ProFootballFocus grades, for instance, he found what seems to be a healthy bust rate even for a position often tagged as one of the most reliable. Then again, PFF grades aren’t universally accepted as gospel, either; besides, they only go back to the 2007 season (as opposed to 1950 for AV).That’s why, for now at least, it may not be possible to truly say whether certain positions are more or less likely to live up to their draft-day expectations. It’s another unanswerable question to throw onto the pile of things about the NFL draft that we just don’t know. read more

Columbus Crew vs. Real Salt LakeThursday, 8pm at Crew StadiumGame 1: RSL 1, Crew 0Players to watchColumbusForward Guillermo Barros Schelotto.  Because the Crew are entering the game in need of two goals to advance, Crew coach Robert Warzycha must employ his top goal scorer if the Crew wish to advance.Real Salt Lake Goalkeeper Nick Rimando.Real Salt Lake knows that the Crew will be pulling out all the stops when it comes to scoring goals. Rimando will surely face an onslaught for the Crew forwards, especially if the game is scoreless late.Key to the MatchWith the Crew already in a one-goal hole, Warzycha must employ his top goal scoring lineup. They don’t have the luxury of playing their usual game, as they must score at least two goals to advance. The Columbus Crew are losing 1-0 in their second playoff game of the season and the referee hasn’t yet blown the opening whistle.The first-round format in the MLS Cup playoffs features a home and home series in which the winner is determined by which team scores a higher total of goals over a two-game stretch.This makes it effectively a 180-minute match where the half-time is days, not minutes.The Crew will take the field Thursday evening in the hole. Their play as of late does not easily lend itself to confidence in their ability to dig themselves out. They don’t even appear to be using all of their shovels.Columbus coach Robert Warzycha’s constant lineup shifting has been well documented this season. Last season’s MLS MVP and current Crew leading scorer, Guillermo Barros Schelotto, has been kept out of games when the opponent has artificial turf.Imagine, by way of comparison, if Jim Tressel had held Beanie Wells out of a game against Penn State because they don’t play on FieldTurf.Warzycha will need to put his best goal-scoring combination on the field without sacrificing the integrity of the defense.When asked about sitting his top goal scorer in the first match against Real Salt Lake, the Crew’s first round opponent, Warzycha simply said he wanted to try something new.“We didn’t score any goals in the last five games when they were on the field,” Warzycha said about Schelotto and Crew forward Alejandro Moreno. “I thought we’d go with a different combination.”Even the opposing coach appeared surprised by Warzycha’s decision to sit Schelotto, but that didn’t make him unhappy about the turn of events.“I don’t know what’s going on inside of their locker room,” Kreis said. “I don’t have all the information that goes into the decision, but we’re feeling good about it.”Regardless of the reason for the 1-0 victory, RSL forward Robbie Findley can smell the blood in the water.“We’ve been talking all week about this home game being our chance to get out on top,” Findley said. “Now we’ve got to go over there for a tough game, a hard-fought game, and now we’ve got to leave it all on the field.”Columbus will run onto the field at Crew Stadium Thursday night knowing they have their work cut out for them. A one-goal victory, such as they’ve recorded eight times this season, will not suffice. Fans can hope they won’t make the task more difficult on themselves by leaving their biggest producers off the field.Crew captain and defender Frankie Hejduk isn’t sounding an alarm just yet.“[Being down a goal] doesn’t change anything,” Hejduk said. “We’re going to come out firing and we’re pretty solid at home, so we’re not too worried about it.”Somebody had better start worrying about it. Otherwise, the Crew’s road to a repeat will come to an unhappy end. read more

first_imgChelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has his eyes set on David de Gea’s number one jersey in the Spanish national teamThe 23-year-old has made just the one appearance for Spain at international level in a friendly win over Costa Rica last November.But, following De Gea’s lacklustre World Cup campaign, Marca conducted a voting poll which saw fans vote for Kepa to become Spain’s new number one.However, the shot-stopper himself is refusing to get carried away and will instead attempt to convince new boss Luis Enrique of starting him ahead of De Gea on the training ground.“Being in the squad is already a reason for joy. We all want to be here and we all want to play; I work for that,” said Kepa, according to FourFourTwo.“We’ll meet the coaching staff in the first few days and get ourselves going, because we have two big games ahead.“It’s a question for the coach. What I will do is work, although obviously, we all want to play.“The coach will decide the best thing for the team, but in the training sessions, I’ll try to put in the effort, for the good of the group most of all.“All players work to compete and to play. The coach decides and we accept whatever it is, always with good harmony.“De Gea is a great goalkeeper and the goal is perfectly covered with him. The World Cup was how it was, we came back too early, but I don’t pay attention to polls or what people say. I try to isolate myself and focus on myself.”In case you were wondering how to pronounce @kepa_46’s name… ?(Cheers, Dave). pic.twitter.com/S7QbIF3zksDavid Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) August 10, 2018Chelsea made Kepa the world’s most expensive goalkeeper after forking out €80m to sign him from Athletic Bilbao last month.And the Spaniard has since kept two clean sheets in his first four Premier League games.He also insists that the €80m price tag has not brought any more pressure in his shoulders.“It’s the price it is because the market is like that, too,” Kepa said.“Higher and higher fees are being paid and I see it as a consequence of the market.“I’m getting used to my new life: a new city, new team… but it’s been positive because when things start well on the pitch, it makes everything easier.“I have felt valued. In the last few years, a lot of Spaniards have done important things here and that’s good for those of us to arrive most recently.“This is a great club, who in recent years have won the Champions League, Europa League, the Premier League… it’s a team with great players.“It was an important gamble and I’m happy to take this step. I want to enjoy it.”last_img read more
