The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “They were both about the same field goal-wise, the kickoffs obviously were a huge difference, although Jay had really improved his,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said when asked of the decision. “I just liked the strength of his leg for a young guy. He has a very good demeanor about him.”The average distance traveled on Catanzaro’s kickoffs was 69.3 yards, while Feely was booting them a full 70 yards down the field. However, the average return on the veteran’s kickoffs was more than 3.5 yards higher than those on the rookie’s. Whatever the reasons, the Cardinals made the decision to go with the former Clemson Tiger who connected on 67-of-82 field goal attempts in college while finishing as the second leading scorer in ACC history. “I called my parents, everybody, my whole family is really ecstatic, as well as me,” he said when asked what he did upon hearing the news. “I teared up a little bit. It’s just a life-long dream coming true for me. “From here on out I know I’ve got to earn my right to be here, but for now I’m celebrating a little bit. I’m really excited about it.”And that’s just it for the 23-year-old. Just because he earned the job in training camp does not mean he is guaranteed to keep it for the duration of the season. Plenty of young kickers have come and go, with very few being good enough and consistent enough to last in the league. Think about it: There’s a reason so many kickers play well into their late 30s and some even into their 40s. Interestingly enough, the question mark facing Catanzaro entering camp was his ability to handle kickoffs. While in college, Catanzaro was left to watch as punter Bradley Pinion handled kickoffs, leaving him left to prove to NFL teams he could do a job that, quite frankly, is rarely a question mark when it comes to young kickers. “It’s another thing people kind of doubted me on,” he said. “I was really excited to get working after the year was over, after the Orange Bowl at Clemson, to work on the kickoff leg. I knew that was kind of my knock coming out, and I just worked my tail off.”Catanzaro said he worked with former NFL kickers Morten Andersen, Dan Orner and Jamie Kohl over the offseason, always believing he could successfully handle kickoffs but knowing he needed get some reps in doing it.“I’m very excited about where my kickoffs are right now; I’m very confident,” he said.Thursday’s preseason finale against the Chargers will be Catanzaro’s first game as the kicker, and he said he’s looking forward to going out and solidifying himself in that role. Top Stories TEMPE, Ariz. — That the Arizona Cardinals decided to go with rookie Chandler Catanzaro over 14-year NFL veteran Jay Feely was not an upset. Catanzaro, after all, has a stronger leg than Feely, had been perfect on his field goal and extra point attempts in the preseason, and had consistently put the ball in the back of the end zone on kickoff attempts.Still, when news came down that the team had decided to place its trust in a rookie, some people wondered if the Cardinals were making the right decision. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Besides, it’s not as if having to try and win a job from an established NFL veteran does not come with its own kind of pressure.“Now I can just kind of focus on being the best me I can be,” Catanzaro said. “I’m not really focused on competing against anybody else anymore. I’m competing against myself and trying to get better each day so I can help this team win games this year.“I’m excited about it.” 0 Comments Share Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “I know from here on out that I have to earn my right to play every day, so I’m willing to work as hard as I ever have to keep this job and earn the right to be here,” he said. That will mean forcing touchbacks and converting on field goal and PAT attempts, some of which will likely occur late in close games. As a rookie he has no track record of making clutch kicks in the NFL, which is why some people are skeptical of the decision to part with Feely, who has made 11 game-winning field goals in his career — including six with the Cardinals.But that risk is of no concern to the coach who made the decision to go with the rookie.“Every position, they’re all the same,” he said. “You either can or you can’t.”Catanzaro said when he’s on the field he is able to block out factors like crowd size and noise, letting himself “get in a zone” where he can block everything else out. He also said experience won’t be an issue because of how much he kicked in college, and added the difference in pressure between then and now won’t be a factor.“Pressure’s pressure,” he said. “I don’t really think of it as pressure. I just take every kick and just zone in and do the best I can do.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact
President Donald Trump waves as he boards Air Force One for a campaign rally in Columbia, Mo., Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018, in Andrews Air Force Base, Md. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci) Video of cop killer becomes Trump campaign push by Jonathan Lemire And Zeke Miller, The Associated Press Posted Nov 1, 2018 10:37 am PDT Last Updated Nov 2, 2018 at 6:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – The widows of two police officers the Mexican immigrant murdered were invited to President Donald Trump’s 2017 address to Congress. The conservative Breitbart News faithfully chronicled his conviction and death sentence. His snarling, expletive-filled rant about killing police officers appeared in a little-noticed January 2018 Trump campaign ad.Now, Luis Bracamontes’ menacing smile has abruptly taken a central role in Trump’s closing midterm election argument about immigration as the president tweeted out a video of the Latino man’s courtroom appearance in what was immediately denounced by some Democrats and Republicans as a racist campaign tactic.Bracamontes, an immigrant living in the country illegally, sports a shaved head and long chin hair and speaks in accented English in the video, and his words are clear: He’s killed cops and he’s “gonna kill more cops soon.”The video , which Trump tweeted late Wednesday, alleges without evidence that Democrats were responsible for allowing Bracamontes into the U.S. It comes amid a frenzy of hardline immigration proposals pushed out by Trump in the final stages of the campaign, including sending troops to the border and revoking birthright citizenship.Bracamontes, a twice-deported immigrant from Mexico, was sentenced to death in California for the 2014 killings. The 53-second video includes expletives uttered by Bracamontes during his trial as he professed regret at not killing more officers.“Illegal immigrant, Luis Bracamontes, killed our people!,” the video states, adding, “Democrats let him into our country … Democrats let him stay.” It includes scenes of a migrant caravan moving toward the U.S., warning ominously, “Who else would Democrats let in?” and suggesting that more violence would soon penetrate the border.The ad was reminiscent of the infamous “Willie Horton” ad used against Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis in 1988 and condemned as racist. Horton, who was black, raped a woman while out of prison on a weekend furlough. As Massachusetts governor, Dukakis supported the furlough program. Dukakis went on to lose to Republican George H.W. Bush.The video tweeted by Trump did not immediately appear to be running on television — it has a runtime longer than most TV ads — although it received extensive coverage on cable news networks. As of Thursday afternoon, it had received 3.51 million views in less than 24 hours and was the “pinned” tweet atop Trump’s profile, meaning it was the first thing any visitor to his Twitter page would see.The White House and the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comments as to who made or paid for the video or if any tax dollars were used to run it from the president’s account.“This is a sickening ad. Republicans everywhere should denounce it,” said Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, a frequent Trump critic. And Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., seeking re-election in a Democratic-leaning South Florida district, said he’d not seen the video but criticized Trump’s use of it.“I can tell you that it’s definitely part of a divide-and-conquer strategy that a lot of politicians, including the president, have used successfully in the past,” Curbelo said Thursday on CNN. “I hope this doesn’t work.”Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, called the new ad the “dog whistle of all dog whistles.”“This is distracting, divisive Donald at his worst,” Perez said on CNN. “This is fearmongering.”The dark video stood in stark contrast to an ad circulated by the Trump campaign earlier in the week that highlighted rosy economic numbers and depicted gauzy scenes of American suburban life. That ad was part of a blitz by Trump’s campaign, and his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, did several interviews to promote it.As for the new video, though, the campaign was silent Thursday and Parscale did not respond to requests for comment.But the Trump campaign was behind the January 2018 video, released on its YouTube page, that featured Bracamontes’s courtroom appearance. That video was timed to the one-year anniversary of Trump’s inauguration and meant to promote his immigration agenda.The previous year, Jessica Davis and Susan Oliver, the widows of Detective Michael Davis and Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver, were invited to Trump’s address to Congress. Bracamontes’ case — he was sentenced to death in March — also received steady coverage on Breitbart and other right-wing news sites.Trump has long promoted the alleged danger presented by those living in the country illegally, although statistics show they do not commit crimes at a higher rate than citizens. During his 2016 campaign, he frequently appeared with so-called “angel families” — those who lost loved ones at the hands of immigrants in the nation illegally.___Follow Lemire on Twitter at http://twitter.com/@JonLemire and Miller at http://twitter.com/@zekejmiller
