Philadelphia Eagles

Defenses dominated both of Saturday’s college football all-star games.

Wisconsin safety Natrell Jamerson returned a fumble 68 yards to lead the West team to a 14-10 win in the East-West Shrine Game. LSU defensive tackle Frank Herron returned a fumble 22 yards to cap a 23-0 victory for the National team in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl at the Rose Bowl.

While the Big Ten and SEC defensive players were among Saturday’s stars, the players who stood out the most were from unheralded programs like Bucknell, Central Michigan, Delaware, Grambling, Northern Iowa, Tulane and Division III Wesley.

The big news Thursday was Jay Cutler making his Dolphins debut out of coming out of retirement, and while the stats don’t reflect it, the former Bears quarterback looked sharp. Also on Thursday, Ryan Mallett was outplayed in what could be an important race to be Baltimore’s backup QB, Tyrod Taylor endured a horrible first-half performance and Blake Bortles got booed after another terrible outing that could put him on the hot seat before the season even begins. You can read about those performances plus even more on the day’s action in Thursday’s roundup.

Bruce Hector, DT, South Florida — The 6-2, 275-pound Hector had seven sacks as a senior and 18 over his career. He added another in the NFLPA Bowl. He’s stout at the point of attack and hard to push off his spot.

Leon Jacobs, LB, Wisconsin — The 6-2, 245-pound Jacobs is a strong, chiseled physical specimen. He sets the edge well and is a durable, smart player who set a school record for games played with 58.

Natrell Jamerson, S, Wisconsin — Jamerson’s highlight was his fumble return for a score, but he was all over the field and was named the defensive MVP of the Shrine Game. He has good speed and ball skills and had a pair of interceptions — with a touchdown — last season for the Badgers.

Jay Cutler to make Dolphins debut against Ravens

Quarterback Jay Cutler will make his Dolphins debut Thursday against the Ravens, likely as the starter in the team’s second preseason game, Miami coach Adam Gase confirmed Tuesday.

“I think right now it appears Jay’s gonna go,” Gase said when asked about Cutler, who signed last week after starter Ryan Tannehill suffered a torn left ACL.

Cutler threw for 1,059 yards and four touchdowns with five interceptions for the Bears in 2016 before a shoulder injury ended his season.

He had one of his best seasons with Gase as the Bears offensive coordinator, throwing for 3,659 yards, 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 2015.

The Boarding Pass invites fans to attend 10 games (eight regular season; two preseason) in varying seat locations for the 2017 season.

You could find yourselves right down by the sidelines with the beautiful people. Or up in the nosebleeds with the blue-collar, die-hards. Billed as the first “all-mobile, full season pass subscription,” the plan costs $725. There’s also a payment plan where fans place a $145 down payment, then pay four monthly payments of $145 apiece.

Here’s how it works: using the Jets mobile app, Boarding Pass holders find out their seat locations two hours before game time. They have no control over where they sit. The surprise is part of the appeal.

As season ticket holders, Boarding Pass holders are also eligible for the Jets Rewards program that allows fans to have dinner with Jets legends like Joe Namath or fly on the team charter.

Todd Marinovich used to evoke the worst QB memories for Raider Nation, but he should be thankful for Russell busting out at an unprecedented level as the No. 1 overall pick in 2007. He went 7-18, sacked 70 times during his career in Oakland with a 65.2 rating. He never looked the part of a franchise passer.dolphins_082

Matt Duchene’s goal never would have counted.

This is arguably one of the worst calls in the history of hockey. During a 2013 game between the Avalanche and Predators, forward Matt Duchene was offsides by a mile. He knew it, the arena knew it, everyone at home knew it — the refs didn’t. Since there was never a whistle he just kept playing, and scored.

Duchene is so far offsides that everyone basically stopped playing, except for the scorer himself. Maybe an email could have fixed it.

Colorado might not have won the 1990 National Championship.

Avery Johnson’s program is about to be a problem in the SEC. He returns sophomore standouts Braxton Key and Dazon Ingram from a team that took down eventual national semifinalist South Carolina twice. But the biggest reason for this jump is the addition of a top five recruiting class headlined by one of the class of 2017’s top pure scorers, Collin Sexton.

Don’t be surprised at all if in 2017-18 Wichita State winds up stepping into the role that Gonzaga has inhabited for the past four months. The Shockers should return every key player from a team that won 31 games and got them into the top 10 of the national rankings. The NCAA Tournament Selection Committee’s potential consideration of metrics outside of just the RPI would also help Wichita avoid being massively under-seeded for a fourth straight year.

The full opening weekend’s Sunday schedule has not one

Matt Ryan Womens Jersey The season opener between Virginia Tech and West Virginia has been pushed back a day from Saturday, Sept. 2 to Sunday, Sept. 3. The longtime rivalry will be played for the first time in 12 seasons. WVU listed the kickoff time as 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.

This now gives us two big FBS games on the Sunday before Labor Day, joining Texas A&M vs. UCLA from the Rose Bowl, which was just moved to Sunday last week. On Monday, it was officially announced that the game would air at 7:30 p.m. on Fox. 2017’s schedule also includes a few games the week prior Labor Day weekend and a Monday night game between Georgia Tech and Tennessee.

Last year’s Sunday game was a thriller, as Texas beat No. 10 Notre Dame 50-47 in double overtime. Hopefully Virginia Tech-WVU can be, at the very least, close to as good.

“We played in Vancouver, first game in a Warriors uniform. And I see James Worthy walking out as I was leaving the game … it’s a legend here. ‘Big Game James.’ I didn’t get to see him play but I just know all about him … I’m a little skeptical at this point to even talk to anybody from the generation before because I don’t even know how they feel about me as a person, as a player because these dudes — they look at me as like, ‘Oh you switching teams, you chasing this, you chasing that.’ So I’m just gonna keep it moving.

“But he was like, ‘Man. Don’t worry about that stuff. People change jobs every single year, every single day. Don’t worry about that. Just go out there and keep working and go win.’ So I’m like, ‘Man that’s nice.’
