In bequeathing Francesa’s time slot to a trio of good-natured relative youngsters—Chris Carlin, a former Francesa producer; Bart Scott, a loudmouth ex-Jets linebacker; and Maggie Gray, who had been a digital anchor here at Sports Illustrated—WFAN has acknowledged that Francesa’s domineering mode departs the station with him. (Francesa, who said on Thursday that he was entertaining three offers for his next gig, appears to believe he can take his clout elsewhere; it’s genuinely difficult to imagine how that would work.)

Just don’t ignore Seattle’s deep hockey history, either. Only one NHL player was ever born there—more on his brief career later—but did you know that the Seattle Metropolitans became the first American team to win the Stanley CupThat’s what Paul Kim learned from a book given to him by an elementary school teacher. As a young South Korean immigrant, he was still learning English at the time but spoke fluent puck. Like his peers, Kim hadn’t heard about the Metropolitans before; certainly not their nine seasons of existence, three Stanley Cup finals appearances and 3-1 triumph over Montreal in 1917, the final season before the NHL was founded. They would soon become his life’s work.

In the right hands, story-telling that calls on the writer’s perspectives and emotions can be doubly powerful. But there are clearly risks. “I don’t encourage it,” says Moran, “because I’m dealing with young people who are in the starting blocks of their careers. Maybe you can make it work if you’ve put in 20 years and established yourself. But if you’re 23, and you start a website devoted to [your alma mater], how are you going to establish any authority as an independent journalistThat’s the danger.”

For Wilbon, the goalposts were moved when he started Pardon the Interruption with friend and colleague Tony Kornheiser in 2001. Show producers encouraged both men to tap into the roots of their affection for sports—Kornheiser as a New Yorker and Wilbon as a Chicagoan. “Once you own it,” says Wilbon, “you own it. And I think connecting with the people and city in that way has helped build a connection. I’ve never had a problem being critical. But I don’t know how any of this would have gone over earlier in my career. Probably not well.”
It comes down to this: As writers, broadcasters and podcasters seek audience share, they will increasingly embrace partisan sportswriting, chasing eyeballs predisposed to look. It is inevitable. Pure journalism could suffer, falling to fewer and fewer outlets. Wilbon is talking about himself when he says, “The genie is not going back in the bottle.” But he could be talking about an entire industry.

A day before this season’s MLS Cup final, the most popular topic at commissioner Don Garber’s annual “State of the League” press conference wasn’t Toronto FC or the Seattle Sounders, but a club that fell in the semifinals.
The consternation and controversy surrounding the potential relocation of the Columbus Crew to Austin, Texas, which many insiders regard as something close to a fait accompli, was on the minds of the media Friday. Garber anticipated that and addressed the issue in his opening remarks, promising that he’d endeavor to make the league’s “position very clear.”
The commissioner said, “Like every sports league, we never want to relocate a team. And while no decision has been made to relocate the Crew, MLS is supportive of [owner Anthony Precourt’s] efforts to explore [his] options in Austin.”
The California-based investor bought the club in 2013 (Garber said MLS was unable to recruit local ownership), and negotiated the right to relocate the team to Texas at the time of purchase. Precourt announced his intentions publicly in October, at which point he’d already been exploring the possibilities for some time behind the scenes.

The Steelers need to win Sunday and have the Jaguars lose to the Texans to seal homefield, but they can clinch a first-round bye just by winning. It won’t come easy, however, against a Patriots team that is dangerous off a loss.
The Patriots fell Monday in Miami but since 2001 are 40-11 the game after losses. New England can clinch the AFC East for the ninth straight season with a win and would own a tiebreaker over the Steelers for homefield advantage by winning in Pittsburgh.
There certainly will be a playoff atmosphere Sunday in the Steel City in what could be a preview of the AFC championship game — site to be determined.

The four best teams in college football are set to face off to crown a national champion. As we focus on the matchups, gambling predictions and storylines, NFL teams will be watching the immense talent split among the four teams.

I probably won’t be back next year, he said. Just seems like it’s a young man’s game. I can see them going younger, with younger players. That’s part of the game.
Seattle could outright cut Bennett, who had 8 1/2 sacks this season, to save the salary space or find a trade partner.
If he does indeed leave town, it will be just another wave of change in an NFC West that watched the Rams rise and the 49ers acquire a potential franchise QB in Jimmy Garoppolo this season.
Before Sunday’s 114-110 victory over the Chicago Bulls, the Wizards were 9-10 against opponents under .500. The other teams with similar struggles are themselves at or near the NBA standings basement. Talk about unwanted company for a Washington team that entered the season believing it had the goods for a run to the Eastern Conference Finals and perhaps beyond.
Including Friday’s victory over the Houston Rockets, the Wizards have won two in a row. More importantly, the consistent effort and focus needed for sustained success showed up.

According to sources who have spoken with people close to Rosen, he has been focused since high school on using football to make money and support the type of lifestyle he wants. He’s OK with challenging the system and being a mouthpiece for divisiveness because he appreciates the attention it draws.
His talent might overrule his non-football concerns, and he’ll likely still be highly valued, but NFL teams will certainly care about this. They don’t want another Robert Griffin III-type personality. Two teams to watch in a possible Rosen trade-up are the Bills and Chargers.
Most importantly, Mayfield has the mindset, leadership experience and resounding respect both from his locker room and from NFL evaluators who have worked with him. He has grown as a person through his experiences at the college level, and regardless of the outcome in the playoffs, Mayfield has plenty of fans at the NFL level.
The Broncos have made it clear to those close to Cousins that they’re ready to make a big offer. Over the last two seasons, since moving on from Peyton Manning and letting Brock Osweiler walk (before bringing him back), the Broncos have spent the least of any NFL team on quarterback (less than $7 million combined over 2016 and ’17). Denver vice president John Elway needs to spend at quarterback to win.
Last note on Denver: If Dowell Loggains isn’t retained on the Bears’ coaching staff, look for him to be in the mix in Denver. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan, someone Cousins respects, speaks highly of him.
Both teams seemed focused on limiting quality scoring chances from the start of the game — and they did that, relying on tight checking and solid positioning to block shots and limit shooting angles in the first two periods.
“We came out pretty strong in this game,” McNabb said, “and Max played great. He won that game for us.”

“I always said it, before he even got here, that he would be what he is today. A lot of people doubted it, but he believed, and that’s why he’s doing what he’s doing.”
Owners last Wednesday overwhelmingly supported Goodell’s extension, a heavily incentive-based deal worth approximately $40 million annually and running through 2023. Sources say that Arthur Blank, the owner of the Atlanta Falcons and chairman of the compensation committee, which was authorized in May to extend Goodell’s contract, had told owners in private conversations in the lead-up to the deal that Jones had assured him that if he didn’t have the votes, he would back down. Many owners believe that pledge was not made in good faith and see his failure to withdraw his resolution for Wednesday as proof.
Jones “went back on his word,” an owner said.

NEW YORK — Not much about the New York Knicks’ win over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday was pretty, but New York head coach Jeff Hornacek pushed enough of the right buttons to help New York get back to .500 — and avoid another embarrassing loss.
With several players battling for minutes — including Ntilikina, Michael Beasley, Lance Thomas, Damyean Dotson — Hornacek’s decision-making is the first thing that can be questioned after most losses.
But he deserves credit for how things unfolded on Sunday night.
Between the Baker move and the lineup decisions in the fourth quarter, Hornacek’s finger prints were all over the victory.
“Strong performance,” one Eastern Conference scout said of Hornacek after watching the game.
In some ways, this Knicks season is a year-long audition for Hornacek.
The man who hired him, Phil Jackson, is no longer here. Jackson’s replacement, Steve Mills, and general manager Scott Perry have to find a coach for the long-term future of the franchise.
Both men say that they want to see progress and consistent effort over the course of the season. And they’ve credited Hornacek for, by and large, getting both out of the Knicks so far.
Pittsburgh’s JuJu Smith-Schuster knocked Vontaze Burfict out of the game with a crack-back block, and Cincinnati’s George Iloka hit Antonio Brown with a helmet shot on a TD catch.
Raiders coach Jack Del Rio has softened his opinion of the hard hit on wide receiver Amari Cooper that left him with a concussion.
After Sunday’s game, Del Rio, clearly angered by Broncos safety Darian Stewart’s hit, called it “vicious.”
Now, instead carrying my daughter on my shoulders while my wife pushed our son in the stroller (read: walking at an adult pace), my wife carried my daughter while I slung the collapsed stroller over one shoulder and carried my son in my other arm. He is the approximate size and shape of a 27-pound kettlebell, minus the convenient handle. It was slow going.
When we finally got on a subway home, I looked at the stroller, the conveyance that made the trip easy until one tiny lost part turned it into dead weight and gave us extra things to carry. This is where, if I were concerned about making this a football metaphor, I would talk about injuries and the difficulties of replacing a star player mid-season in the salary cap era.
Buffalo (7-6) stayed alive in the AFC playoff picture, while the Colts (3-10) were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.
The game began in nearly white-out conditions with a major lake-effect storm blowing in off nearby Lake Erie. The snow fell so hard a half-hour before kickoff it was nearly impossible to see New Era Field’s west-end scoreboard from the east-end stands.
McCoy’s touchdown came on Buffalo’s second possession of overtime. Facing third-and-2, McCoy found a crease up the middle and had enough footing to cut to his left and scamper into the end zone untouched.
Agent Scott Boras is going straight to the top in his quest to find a home for Jake Arrieta.
The Heat shot 65 percent from the field while outscoring the Grizzlies 62-40 in the second half. They went 11 for 14 in the final period.
He’ll also have the added benefit of being the only quarterback on the 2017 roster with a deal for 2018. Moore and Cutler will both be free agents in January, and while Moore could return, Cutler seems destined to depart back to the announcer’s booth until another sweetheart deal comes along.
Denver knew it was betting on a project when it selected Paxton Lynch late in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft. The Memphis quarterback had great potential coming out of college and the mechanics to keep scouts engaged throughout the predraft process. While questions remained about the level of competition he faced at Memphis, great quarterbacks have come from less — as Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz is proving.
Despite sitting out the last eight minutes of the game, Dennis Schroder scored 21 points to lead Atlanta. Ilyasova added 20 for the Hawks, who are 3-11 away from home. Taurean Prince had 17 points and eight rebounds.
“I didn’t want him to get a shot off, so I did a poke check and it was a second too early and it went in, but he’s a hell of a player with a hell of a shot, so I just wanted to take that away,” Lehner said. “I felt like I had him most of the game and it’s tough.”
It was Tarasenko’s second goal in his last nine games.
“He will be the first to admit he’s missed more nets and hit more posts, but for me the mindset of him taking the puck to the net and scoring in tight, that’s big,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said. “If he continues to do that, he won’t be stopped.”
