The Steelers have legit candidates in Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and Cam Heyward. But Roethlisberger gets the slight nod for his electric late-season surge. No QB finished hotter than Big Ben, who threw for 1,953 yards and 16 touchdowns from Weeks 11 to 16. He ranked second in passing yards before sitting the season finale against Cleveland, and his 28 touchdowns ties for fifth league-wide. Take out that five-interception game against Jacksonville — which was clearly an aberration — and Roethlisberger’s season line of 14 interceptions doesn’t look so bad. Brown was brilliant all year, but so was Roethlisberger, who was near-perfect in the Steelers’ game against New England without Brown. — Jeremy Fowler
Sure, to be fair, consumers likely aren’t seeking out the Better Business Bureau to assign them compliments like they would with a higher volume company like Yelp, although the Bureau does have a verification process and positive reviews can be assigned. It seems likely that the complaints aren’t due to the Ball family’s maliciousness, but ineptitude at running said business. Most of the complaints revolve around shipping delays, though a few consumers say that they’ve been told that their order has shipped weeks ago and still haven’t received anything. A couple customers also said that they received the wrong items.
So, this isn’t an ideal way to close out a back-to-back set and a three-games-in-four-days trip. Portland faces the Hawks in Atlanta on a Saturday, then cross a time zone to play the Bulls in Chicago on Monday. Then, after facing those Bulls, the Blazers will head out that night — and lose an hour in the process — for Cleveland, where they’ll face the Cavaliers less than 24 hours later. The Cavaliers will enter this game with a two-day rest advantage.
First, this marks their third game in four days and the second of a back-to-back set. And, even worse, it’s the second of a back-to-back set that requires travel to elevation-drunk Denver, which veteran coaches will tell you is the most brutal schedule/fatigue scenario in the NBA. So, after hosting the Hawks on Jan. 2, the Cheap Basketball Jerseys Suns will leave Phoenix that same night and head for Denver and get in late, such is the distance from Denver International Airport and the city’s downtown. Oh, and the Nuggets will enter this game with an absurd three-day rest advantage. Three days!
In the sense that Wall finally has a new shoe deal, it certainly does. We don’t Cheap NBA Jerseys know the dollar amount behind it, but a five-year deal in sneaker free agency is typically what a second-tier free agent would get in the NBA.
