Joey Harrington, Mike Bellotti on Mario Cristobal to USC Speculation
09/16/2021 3:27pm

Joey Harrington and Mike Bellotti discuss Mario Cristobal to USC speculation originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay AreaWhenever a big-time programs head coaching job becomes available, the speculation begins as fans often start to worry that their head coach could take the vacancy.Monday, Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal emerged as a possible candidate to replace Clay Helton at USC.But take it from the experts and ones who know Cristobal well, he doesnt want to take the Southern Californiajob.Former Ducks QB Joey Harrington and former head coach Mike Bellotti gave their thoughts on all of the speculation surrounding Cristobal and the notion that he would consider leaving Oregon to take the USC head coaching vacancy.Listen to the latest Talkin Ducks PodcastCoach Bellotti, who headed up the Ducks program from 1995-08 compared the Pac-12 jobs from back then to now.I think that five years ago, 10 years ago, USC was probably the best job in the conference, always with potential. Now it is not I think its not as good of a job.Harrington added, Is it the best job in the country No. Is Mario going to leave No. If he didnt leave to go to Miami back to his alma mater and in the conversations that Ive had with him, I truly believe he buys into the commitment to this program and values what guys like coach Bellotti have done before him.Hes not going anywhere. Hes got a better chance to win a National Championship here than he does down south.Joey HarringtonFollowing Saturdays big road victory at Ohio State, Cristobal now holds a 27-10 record after taking the head coaching gig at Oregon in 2018.And more than anything, Harrington and Bellotti agree:Coach Cristobal wants to stay at Oregon.I think Mario is committed to Oregon. I think that he really likes the environment here. Hes proven he can recruit here. Hes proven he can out-recruit USC here from Eugene, Oregon.Mike BellottiSo what it also boils down to is Is the grass actually greener at USCNo, its not, in fact its dried out. Theyre having a drought, Bellotti said with a smile. Its really that type of a situation.Next up for Cristobal and the Ducks, they kickoff at 4:30p.m. PT Saturday against Stony Brook.Hear more from Harrington and Bellotti in the video above.

Who Are The Fastest Players In The NFL?
09/16/2021 12:16pm

Who are the fastest players in the NFL originally appeared on NBC Sports ChicagoWant to see these NFL players run into the end zone Want to see them do it againBlink and you might miss some of these speedy skill position players do their best impressions of SpongeBob as the Quickster.The NFL is filled with some of the strongest and fastest humans on Earth, but this group of players manages to leave its opposition in the dust. So which player gets to take the title of fastest player in the NFLNFLs Next Gen Stats offer an answer. They have been tracking ball carrier speed since 2016 and can determine a players top speed with possession. Using their data, here are the fastest players in the league.Who is the fastest player in the NFL for 2021Here are the NFLs fastest ball carriers in the 2021 regular season so far via Next Gen Stats:Melvin Gordon, Denver Broncos RB: 21.52 mphSammy Watkins, Baltimore Ravens WR: 21.05 mphDevin Duvernay, Baltimore Ravens WR: 21.01 mphKhalil Herbert, Chicago Bears RB: 20.88 mphDavid Montgomery, Chicago Bears RB: 20.80 mphJoe Mixon, Cincinnati Bengals RB: 20.66 mphBrandin Cooks, Houston Texans WR: 20.62 mphHenry Ruggs, Las Vegas Raiders WR: 20.62 mphIsaiah McKenzie, Buffalo Bills WR: 20.52 mphAnthony Schwartz, Cleveland Browns WR: 20.43 mphGordon set the top mark with a 70-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that put a nail in the New York Giants coffin. Cornerback Adoree Jackson nearly caught him at the goal line, but Gordon still blazed his way into the end zone for his first touchdown of the season.The play was also the longest rush in the NFL in Week 1, beating out Montgomerys 41-yard run against the Los Angeles Rams that came in at No. 5 on the list.The second-, third- and fourth-fastest times from Week 1 all came from different play situations. Watkins play came on a reception, Duvernays came on a punt return and Herberts came on a kickoff return.Who was the fastest NFL player in 2020With just a one-week sample size for 2021, the 2020 data offers a more comprehensive glimpse at the fastest players in the league.Here were the NFLs fastest ball carriers for the 2020 regular season via Next Gen Stats:Raheem Mostert, San Francisco 49ers RB: 23.09 mph Week 2Raheem Mostert, San Francisco 49ers RB: 22.73 mph Week 1Kenyan Drake, Arizona Cardinals RB: 22.11 mph Week 6Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts RB: 22.05 mph Week 17Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs WR: 21.91 mph Week 14Nyheim Hines, Indianapolis Colts RB: 21.85 mph Week 13Nelson Agholor, Las Vegas Raiders WR: 21.72 mph Week 17Trevon Diggs, Dallas Cowboys CB: 21.72 mph Week 8Michael Davis, Los Angeles Changers CB: 21.68 mph Week 4D.K. Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks WR: 21.66 mph Week 7Mosterts top two plays came in consecutive weeks to start out the 2020 season.First came a Week 1 reception against the Arizona Cardinals where he topped out at 22.73 mph for the 49ers first touchdown of the season.The next week, Mostert wasted no time and went even faster.He took the first play from scrimmage to the house, blowing past the New York Jets defense up the right sideline for an 80-yard score.The turf that Mostert shredded on his way to a touchdown turned into a major detriment for the 49ers. Mostert and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo missed multiple weeks with injuries sustained against the Jets in their Week 2 game at MetLife Stadium, while defensive ends Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas suffered season-ending injuries. The 49ers were in East Rutherford, N.J., again the following week to take on the Giants and they once again endured a major injury, this time to tight end Jordan Reed. The injuries continued in a Week 4 Thursday Night Football contest between the Broncos and Jets, and Mostert had seen enough.Mosterts injury woes continued in 2021, as the running back suffered a season-ending knee injury in the 49ers win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.After Mostert, the next-fastest player was Kenyan Drake, who eclipsed 22 mph on a 69-yard touchdown run against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 of last season.Two prominent receivers also made the top 10 list for 2020. Hill put up his fastest play of the season in Week 14 with a 44-yard touchdown reception in Miami, while Metcalf came in at No. 10 with his 6-yard touchdown reception against the Arizona Cardinals. It was not the most impressive play he made with his wheels in that game, though:Metcalf has also put his speed to the test on the track. He participated in the USA Track and Field Golden Games in May and posted a 10.36-second time in the mens 100m. For context, that time was faster than 15 Olympians from the 100m heats at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.Two more players featured in the top 10 from 2020 are cornerbacks. Davis posted his top speed on a 78-yard pick-six, while Diggs came on an interception in the end zone.Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry, former Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller and Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown were among the players who just missed the cut for the top 10.Who is the fastest NFL player of all timeNext Gen Stats were not around in the days of Deion Sanders, Bo Jackson or even Chris Johnson. John Ross has the fastest 40-yard dash time in NFL combine history, but that only marks players speeds before they enter the league and electronic timers were introduced in 1999.Theres no empirical way to determine the fastest players prior to 2016, but what we can determine is the fastest ball carrier of the Next Gen Stats era. That distinction belongs to Hill, who got up to 23.24 mph on a kickoff return against the Houston Texans. Hill and Mostert are the only players to exceed 23 mph with the football in their hands since Next Gen Stats started tracking speed.Cheetah reached the end zone on his record-setting play, but what could have been a 105-yard touchdown was brought back because of a penalty in a crucial spot in the game.Hill has made a habit of breezing past defenders during his six NFL seasons, but he has set loftier goals for showcasing his speed. The Chiefs receiver has talked trash to the fastest man of all time, Usain Bolt, and the two have even brought up the idea of racing each other.Bolts fastest recorded speed on the track was 27.78 mph during the 100m at the 2009 IAAF World Championships, so its possible Hill could be on the receiving end of a peace sign taunt from Bolt if the two ever went toe-to-toe.This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

USWNT Players Association Calls USSF's Identical Deals Proposal a ‘PR Stunt'
09/16/2021 10:21am

The United States Womens National Team Players Association called out the U.S. Soccer Federations offer for identical contracts for mens and womens players on Wednesday as a PR stunt.The USSF announced its proposal on Tuesday with the hopes of getting USMNT and USWNT players under the same collective bargaining agreement.The USSF later countered the USWNTPAs statement, saying that its proposal was real, authentic and in good faith.Disputes between the USWNT and USSF are not new. The USWNT sued the federation in 2019 for gender discrimination in pay and playing conditions. The lawsuit was later dismissed and the USWNT has since appealed.USWNT star forward Alex Morgan said she is cautiously optimistic about negotiations with the USSF.We still need to chat about the statement given by U.S. Soccer, but any commitment to equal pay publicly is good, Morgan said Wednesday. However, we need to look line by line at what theyre actually providing, because if you have equal, but its not even what we got before, or to the value that we are, then we still consider that to be not good enough.She continued to say that the USWNT does not want to enter 2022 without a deal in place.We dont want to start the new year without a new CBA in effect, so thats the No. 1 priority of our PA, of our legal team, she said. Looking at the USSF statements, its difficult to say, we want to feel encouraged and we want to be optimistic, but we have seen a lot of statements before.The USWNTs agreement expires at the end of 2021, while the USMNT has been under the rules of a deal that expired in 2018.The 24 teams that participated in the 2019 Womens World Cup shared a prize pool of $30 million. By comparison, the 32 mens teams that participated in the 2018 World Cup split a prize pool of $400 million, with the title-winning France team bringing home $38 million h/t Goal.com. Fans chanted equal pay as the USWNT won the 2019 Womens World Cup.This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.
