Los Angeles Rams fire head coach Jeff Fisher

cheap jerseys The stadium is half-full three minutes before the scheduled kickoff, but cheers wail as if the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum were at capacity. The Rams expected 91,000 fans for their preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys at the Coliseum. Official attendance stood at 89,140, breaking the NFL’s all-time record for largest U.S. preseason attendance. The Rams run out to a warm welcome — from the L.A. weather and from pillars spewing fire and popping fireworks at the edge of the tunnel. It is loud.

I’ve documented every “Hard Knocks” season for since 2012, when Joe Philbin was wowing America with charisma that would leave a young Elvis Presley green with envy.

Oakland Raiders give Jack Del Rio new four-year deal

wholesale nfl jerseys The move was anticipated. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday the Raiders would file their relocation paperwork within days. It is the first step in a relocation process that won’t become official until the Raiders receive 24 votes from NFL owners to formally make the move. The Raiders had until Feb. 15 to file relocation papers. NFL owners could vote on the team’s relocation proposal at the Annual League Meeting in March, per Rapoport. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said “if the (Raiders) decide that they can’t make it work in Oakland and cheap jerseys and they decide that they want to file for relocation, then their window is from when they get eliminated from the playoffs to Feb. 15.” They will file before that window closes. There are still questions, including whether or not the Raiders do the deal for the $1.9 billion Las Vegas…
