gruden hire shows raiders' mark davis a mover and shaker


alameda — jon gruden will be the center of attention tuesday when he is introduced as the raiders head coach.yet the day is as much about owner mark davis as it is about gruden.like it or not, davis has altered the nfl landscape twice within the last nine months.it’s a tossup as to which davis move is more bold — getting approval to move his franchise to las vegas in late march or luring gruden back into the organization 16 years after he was traded, with the last nine in the broadcast booth.either way, it might be time to stop underestimating mark davis.you may believe the concepts of vegas and gruden will lead to the raiders doom. yet there’s no denying davis has dramatically altered any expectations of him as a mover (vegas) and a shaker (gruden).it’s been more than six years since al d

warriors in fast lane en route to major nba road mark


the warriors haven’t broken any monumental nba records lately because they’ve pretty much gobbled up most of the major ones over the past three seasons. but they’re on the cusp of another cherished mark that’s definitely worth going after.consecutive road victories. the warriors are at 14 straight, which ties their franchise best set two seasons ago at the outset of their unprecedented 73-9 campaign. a win at houston saturday breaks that club record and ties them for second with the 1994-95 utah jazz on the all-time nba list.breaking the franchise mark is all well and good, but the ones that really should be coveted would be the next two after that. a 16th straight would tie them with one of the greatest teams ever, the 1971-72 nba champion lakers team led by jerry west and wilt chamberlai

the bears-mike glennon marriage only makes sense if ...


the bears’ marriage to quarterback mike glennoncan’t be officially consummated until thursday afternoon, if it’s going to happen at all, but rumors have it they're engaged, and so, this is looking like a ceremony without a best man.geez, what a tortured metaphor. sorry. i apologize. but i can’t connect the dots here.if the bears tell you they think glennon is their franchise quarterback, then ask them why he wasn’t the buccaneers’ franchise quarterback.because the bucs drafted an actual franchise quarterback, is the right answer. jameis winston is the right answer. that’s what a franchise quarterback looks like. even the bucs know it, in case the bears are watching.or look at it this way: it’s hard to believe a guy is a franchise quarterback after he has been benched for josh mccown.but if
