PHILADELPHIA, PA – Hockey’s back!

The New Jersey Devils (1-0-0) kicked off their season on the road against the Philadelphia Flyers (1-1-0) on Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center. The high-scoring game opened with a goal early at 3:30 of the first period, when Marty Havlat nudged one in past Philadelphia’s Steve Mason after a shot from Patric Elias. Less than two minutes later the Devils rushed the Flyers’ zone again. Travis Zajac took a point blank shot at Steve Mason that was blocked and bounced away behind the net, where Jaromir Jagr was able to gain control of it and pass it back to Zajac, who scored on a one-timer from the low slot. Though down, the Flyers were not out of the contest, with a couple of big hits from Lecavalier and Grossmann on Marty Havlat and Travis Zajac to keep the energy on the Flyers’ bench high.

It looked as though the Flyers had closed the gap by one at 14:10 when R.J. Umberger batted a high puck out of the air and over the shoulder of Cory Schneider, but after review by the official the goal was disallowed.

With time ticking down in the final seconds of the first the Devils were back on the attack, with Mark Letestu carrying the puck in over the blueline on a questionable play that was not whistled down. After some quick passing at the point the play was broken up by Claude Giroux, who failed to clear the puck out of the zone. Havlat regained possession with a nifty pokecheck and passed it over to Jon Merrill, who held onto it and then gave it back to Havlat in front of the net who went to his backhand and put it high over the shoulder of Steve Mason for his second goal of the night, extending the New Jersey lead to three goals.

Early in the second the Flyers struck back making it a 3 – 1 game with a goal on a one-timer from Claude Giroux. The play started on a big hit from Vincient Lecavalier in the Flyers’ end that dislodged the puck from Mike Cammalleri’s stick and started a rush the other way. Flyers forward Matt Read carried it in over the blue line and made a pass to Lecavalier at the point, who was able to find Giroux open at the top of the slot. Less than a minute later the Flyers struck again, with a goal from Zack Stortini off his own rebound on Cory Schneider, bringing the Flyers to within one goal. Though the Flyers seemed resurgent in the wake of two quick goals, the Devils were determined to hold on to their lead. Adam Henrique scored a quick goal at 6:10 of the second period to extend the Devils’ lead by two once more. With a shot from the slot by Ryan Clowe landing in the corner, Henrique was able to dig out the puck and push into the middle of the slot, where he put it in over the glove of Steve Mason.

The Flyers struck again with a goal from Waynne Simmonds at 10:38, who took off on a breakaway only to be pokechecked by the Devils’ netminder Schneider, but before he was able to cover the puck up and kill the play a backchecking Marek Zidlicky kicked it into the back of the Devils’ net, bringing the score to 4 – 3. Two minutes later, Lecavalier brought the game to a 4 – 4 tie with a pass from Luke Schenn and Matt Read, before burying the puck in the back of the net from out front of the Devil’s goaltender. Jaromir Jagr came close to breaking the 4 – 4 deadlock when he intercepted a weak pass out of the Flyers end at 14:28. Walking in on the left wing Jagr rifled a shot at Mason who was able to get in front of it and prevent the Devils from taking the lead once more.

A miscommunication between Devils defencemen Marek Zidlicky and Jon Merrill in the first half of the third period leaves Waynne Simmonds open to pickup the loose puck in front of the Devils’ net, scoring his second goal of the game and giving the Philadelphia Flyers the go-ahead goal in the game.

Mike Cammalleri would net his first of the game a few minutes later, after Jaromir Jagr broke out of the Devils’ end on a give-and-go from Eric Gelinas. Skating down the length of the ice Jagr managed to get around the defenceman Braydon Coburn and slip a pass cross-crease to Mike Cammalleri who one-timed it in to the back of the net to notch the score at 5 – 5. Three minutes later in a remarkably similar experience Ryan Clowe streaked down the left wing to find Tuomo Ruutu open in front of the net and score the go-ahead goal making the score 6 – 5 for the Devils.

The Devils would go on to score twice more for a final of 8 – 5, with goals coming from Letestu and Clowe. Adam Henrique, Mark Letestu and Ryan Clowe each had a 3-point game for the Devils, while Marty Havlat scored two goals for the Devils and Waynne Simmonds scored two for the Flyers.

The New Jersey Devils are set to take on the Florida Panthers on October 11th in Florida.

LIONS START THE SEASON WITH A BANG

During today's season opener at Ford Field, the Lions allayed fan fears of another losing season by demolishing the visiting New York Giants by a score of 38-21.

The game started in spectacular fashion with Manning being sacked on the first three plays of the game, all by defensive end Ezekiel Ansah. The ensuing punt was returned 43 yards by Reggie Bush to set up a TD pass from Stafford to Fauria, who had lined up in the slot.

After another defensive stop and a FG, the Lions assumed complete control. Alfred Morris was a workhorse all day, trampling the Giants D for 178 yards on the ground, whereas Calvin was his usual brilliant self.

The Giants did mount a comeback in the fourth quarter but it was too little, too late and the result was never in doubt. The only negative on the display was Stafford's two interceptions in the red zone in an otherwise exemplary performance by the young QB. But these are the kind of errors in judgement that can be eliminated during, what just could be, a very promising season. Lions fans, dare you dream to hope?

Game Notes
It's a blank slate at the start of the season so there's limited information. The Giants play a balanced Offence with an attacking 4-3 Defence.

Looking at the Giants roster, the Giants appear to have a weak team. There are big weapons on their offence. The main danger of their D is the pash rush of Pierre Paul (RE-86) and I should stay away from throwing to Rodgers-Cromartie (CB-87). The Giant's Nickel CB is weak (McBride 74) so I may put Fauria/Ebron in the slot against him at times particularly near the red zone.

Game Prep: Work with Fauria (TE), Install gameplan to Flowers, Stafford, Spikes, Calvin, Suh

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

BOSTON, MA - Well it looks like the Red Sox did not get the memo that they weren't going to be good this year. They opened the season with a sweep of the Yankees at home only to lose to Oakland last night, but with Chris Archer on the mound it's possible Boston can continue their 1-loss record. Jesse Chavez would start for Oakland, an excellent opportunity for the Red Sox to get some runs.

Matt Adams would start the ball rolling in the 1st with an RBI single, driving in Jackie Bradley Jr. after working his way over to 3rd. Blake Swihart capped off the inning with a sac-fly that scored Dustin Pedroia from 3rd. Mookie Betts made it 3-0 as Archer continued his dominance from last year with a solo-HR in the 2nd.



Can Pedroia live up to his contract in 2016?

Chavez did his best, but Boston had his number. A Xander Bogaerts double combined with a Pedroia single made it 4-0, and then an Owings RBI double off the Green Monster made it 5-0 and ended Chavez's day without recording a single out in the 4th. Owings stole 3rd and Bradley Jr. drove him in with a sac-fly to deep CF.

Adams ended the scoring for Boston in the 5th with a towering solo-HR that passed over the Green Monster and basically put the game out of reach. The A's took advantage of rookie Braxton Davis by putting Eric Sogard on 3rd and Jacoby Ellsbury on 2nd in the 9th. Leonys Bravo came in but allowed a 2RBI single by Adam Lind before finishing the game.

IT'S FOOTBALL TIME!

The season is upon once again and fans in Detroit will be hoping for a better season than last year. Hopefully a change of owner will bring a change of fortunes. BritPitbull was today interviewed by Larry Ridley today who asked
Quote:
"Coming off a poor season a year ago, and now a less than impressive preseason, where is this team headed this year?"
Brit was positive in his answer:

Quote:
"It's time to wipe the slate clean. There are 16 games ahead of us, ad I think we can get to the playoffs."
Surely the team's popularity with the fans would go through the roof if the Lions could actually get to the post-season for once.

Analysis
A truly awful performance in the rain in Buffalo. Freeman was once again terrible. The Bills D was very good against both the run and pass and we struggled to stop the run or bring down receivers. Pursuit in the secondary was a big concern as the Bills gashed the Lions D for two short passes that each went for 50 yards. Not a good way to go into the season proper but pre-season isn't anything to worry about.

Analysis
This was a very even game in which Freeman actually played quite well. We went down by 10 but then scored 16 unanswered points before experimenting with a fake extra point, which ultimately cost us the game as the Lions D failed to stop a final drive by Henne at the end.

Kentucky Wildcats head coach Zack Kiesel has released his team's first depth chart of the season. Maxwell Smith has won the starting quarterback job, and seems to fit Kiesel's pro-style offense a bit better than the dual-threat Whitlow. Raymond Sanders will be the team's running back, but Kiesel expects to see the carries shared by Sanders, Clemons, and George this season.

The defense looks a lot different in the 3-4, and Donte Rumph will be a massive force at defensive end. Kiesel said that he just needs to work a bit better at setting the edge on running plays. He won't be counted on to rush the passer, as most of the pressure will come from the outside linebackers.

Kiesel Brings Youth, Excitement to Kentucky

Everyone could see that the Kentucky Wildcats were going to fire Joker Phillips after the 2012 season. He had failed to record a winning season in any of his three years at the helm, and it all culminated with a 1-9 start to the 2012 season. What many people likely didn't see coming was who the Wildcats would tab as his replacement. The coaching search was branded as "outside-the-box", and the administrators seemed to want a more forward-thinking head coach who could attract top talent to Lexington.

Zack Kiesel is certainly young, and lacks the experience that most SEC head coaches possess. He has never been a head coach at the college level before, but has been regarded as one of the brightest minds in the game from both an offensive and a defensive standpoint. He was a top-level high school head coach in the state of Maryland, a state that boasts some of the best high school talent in the country. He then went on to become an offensive specialist for his alma mater, the Maryland Terrapins. Under the direction of offensive coordinators Gary Crowton and Mike Locksley, Kiesel attempted to streamline the offense and make sure the coordinators were being balanced with their play-calling. He also brought fresh ideas to their offensive play books.

Kiesel will bring with him to Lexington a very diverse schematic background. He ran a multiple, pro-style based offense in high school, a spread offense under Gary Crowton, and a multiple, spread-option based offense under Mike Locksley. He also has experience with both the 4-3 and 3-4 defensive schemes, but seems to prefer the 3-4.

In his introductory press conference, he stated that the Wildcats would run "a pro-style offense with many spread influences". He also compared the offense to what offensive coordinator Jim Chaney ran at Tennessee last season. However, he also said that his offense can be tweaked for almost any personnel, seeming to hint that he could accommodate a dual-threat quarterback as well as a traditional pocket passer.

He also stated that the Wildcats would make the transition to a 3-4 defense. He likes the advantages that the 3-4 gives a coaching staff, and believes that it is much easier to recruit for. "Instead of trying to find guys to fill certain positions, you can just recruit a bunch of athletes and figure out what they do best." He wants the defense to be very aggressive, and was proud of the defense that defensive coordinator Brian Stewart ran at Maryland last season. "We made the transition from a 4-3 to a 3-4 last season, and ended up with one of the best defenses in the country until we got hit with some bad injuries."

Coach Kiesel has already been bombarded with questions about the quarterback position, and he said that he will make a decision on that very early on. "I want our guy to know that he's the guy. I don't believe in playing multiple quarterbacks. We have some pocket passers and some dual-threat guys. The offense doesn't change much for either of them, but we have some option plays for the dual-threat guys to run. I'm looking forward to seeing more of what these guys have over the next few weeks."

The Wildcats open up the season on August 31st against Western Kentucky. The game is being played at LP Field, home of the Tennessee Titans.

The Bills offered a 2016 3rd rd pick for DE Devin Taylor (75). I don't think he'll ever be a star so I was eager to trade but wanted a bit more. We ended up trading Taylor and a 4th rd pick for Brandon Spikes.
