When the NCAA instituted the targeting rule where players were ejected for hits to the head and neck area, the game went through a drastic change. It looks like the Chargers and the Redskins want to implement a similar change in the NFL.
Washington and Los Angeles were two teams prominently featured Thursday when the NFL released proposed rule changes to be discussed by owners next week.
Gonzalez said he thought the ball was going to clear the fence by a little more.
“But Spangenberg did a good job,” Gonzalez said. “He was playing deep and he got to the spot quick and he made the catch. When he was coming down, it looks like on the video he dunked the ball, like that was an alley oop or something. I got lucky on that one. It really gave the team momentum but it was a tough loss.”
Gray opened impressively, striking out the side in the first, but then quickly got into trouble. He gave up four singles around a double play, including Manuel Margot’s RBI hit in the second, and was tagged for five runs in the fourth.
Edelman said he immediately thought of the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Fla., where 17 people died.
“With the emotions of what happened, and I have a kid now, I said, ‘Holy Toledo, what is going on?’” Edelman told the Times.
He called his assistant in Boston, Shannen Moen, and told her to go through the comments of his most recent Instagram post to find the one in question.
Moen found the comment, which read, “I’m going to shoot my school up watch the news.” She called Boston police, who did a background check of the profile that posted the threat.
The email and IP addresses linked to the account was traced to Port Huron, Mich., and police there went to the address linked to the account for further investigation.
