Nathan Wayne Entrekin, the Arizona man who dressed as the Book of Mormon figure Captain Moroni and allegedly violated the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, is expected to enter a plea bargain on Friday before a state judge. Federal Court.

The FBI arrested Entrekin in July and he was charged with five federal offenses in October. He is due to appear by video on Friday for a plea deal hearing he requested in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Entrekin stood out in national television coverage of the Capitol Breach because he wore a gladiator costume and posed as Captain Moroni, according to a 27-page affidavit from an FBI agent. The Book of Mormon describes Captain Moroni raising armies to fight tyrants around 72 BC.

A man the FBI says is Nathan Wayne Entrekin sits on a bench near the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. The FBI says the photo was publicly posted on Twitter. Entrekin was arrested and faces five misdemeanor charges in connection with the offense.

The affidavit included footage showing a man the FBI agent identified as Entrekin walking through the gates of the Capitol at least twice and footage, allegedly from Entrekin’s phone, that shows looting.

Entrekin said he considered his time at the Capitol “solemn” and “revered,” according to the FBI affidavit. He also said he decided to leave as soon as he saw broken glass and looting, according to the affidavit, but the FBI agent said the video evidence “sometimes confirmed and sometimes contradicted the claims. of the accused”.

Federal prosecutors have filed criminal charges against 733 people, according to a Justice Department database. New cases continue to be filed.

Violators injured more than 140 police officers on January 6, 2021. They caused more than $1.5 million in damage to the Capitol.

Already, 173 people have pleaded guilty and judges have sentenced 75, according to an NPR database. Nearly half were sentenced to jail with an average sentence of 115 days for those who pleaded guilty, NPR reported. The so-called QAnon Shaman, Jacob Chansley, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 41 months in prison.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Robin Meriweather issued a warrant for Entrekin’s arrest on July 14. The FBI arrested him the next day at his home in Cottonwood, Arizona, according to a return on the warrant filed by FBI Special Agent Trevor Culbert.

A judge ordered Entrekin’s release on his own recognizance on July 23. He remained free under several conditions. He cannot travel outside of Arizona or the United States without permission. He cannot enter the District of Columbia except for court business and meetings with his attorney. He is also prohibited from owning a weapon.

The FBI got Entrekin’s name from a tip, according to the affidavit, which says he told FBI agents he drove across the country in his personal car.

The FBI included evidence it says came from Entrekin’s Twitter account, where he allegedly posted a tweet in December saying, “Hey Patriots! Captain Moroni arrives in DC on January 6. Yay! Alma 46:12.

Entrekin narrated videos for his mother as he walked around inside the Capitol and on the grounds outside and also gave videotaped interviews, according to the affidavit.

“I am Captain Moroni. I am the William Wallace of the Book of Mormon,” Entrekin said in an interview, according to the affidavit. “In the Book of Mormon Alma, a freedom fighter named Captain Moroni fought for his freedom against the Men-Kings,” Entrekin said in interviews.

The FBI agent who wrote the affidavit included a background section on Captain Moroni and the title of freedom. He specifically described the Title of Freedom:

“In all of the photos and videos of the defendant, he is wearing a wooden peg with a piece of white cloth attached. The cloth appears to have the following text handwritten on it: IN MEMORY OF OUR GOD, OUR RELIGION AND FREEDOM, AND OUR PEACE, OUR WIVES, AND OUR CHILDREN ALMA 46:12.

Federal prosecutors filed five charges against Entrekin on November 18:

  • Entering and staying in a building or land with restricted access.
  • Disorderly and disruptive conduct in a building or restricted area.
  • Enter and stay in certain rooms in the Capitol building.
  • Disorderly conduct in a capitol building.
  • Marching, demonstrating or picketing a Capitol building.

Entrekin pleaded not guilty to all five counts on Dec. 8, but his attorney has asked the court to schedule a hearing into the plea deal, to be held on Friday.

Entrekin’s attorney, Deputy Federal Public Defender Dani Jahn, declined to comment for this story.

If convicted, Entrekin could spend more than a year in prison, but LawandCrime.com said last summer, ahead of the scheduled hearing on the apparent plea deal, that a maximum sentence for Entrekin was unlikely.

Dior kicks off 2022 with a brand new beauty campaign featuring actresses Yara Shahidi and Natalie Portman. Forever Foundation, Shahidi’s first Dior campaign since being named Global Dior Brand Ambassador, is rooted in the concept of promoting an inclusive community, featuring Dior’s reinvented foundation. The original product, “Dior Forever”, was created in 2007 and was the brand’s first high coverage foundation. “Today, we are reinventing our iconic foundation Forever with a new formula at the heart of which care and floral character play an essential role, without compromising its original qualities”, says Peter Philips, Creative Director and the image at Dior Makeup. “On the contrary, this new generation also offers even better performance,” adds Philips.

Forever Foundation is available in forty-three different shades, and its color variation has been carefully designed for people of all walks of life. Equally remarkable is the campaign’s commitment to sustainability and clean formulas. The bottle itself is made up of up to 40% recycled glass and the cap is made entirely from recycled plastic, while the formula inside the bottle is made with botanical ingredients that meet the needs of various types. of skin. The Forever Foundation formula also contains a new long-lasting function, enhanced by anti-transfer technology that makes the product resistant to heat, humidity, stress and signs of fatigue. Plus, the foundation’s luminosity leaves skin feeling and looking hydrated. In the words of Philips: “Long lasting, care and beautification – this new formula is, as close as it gets, a second skin that becomes one with yours. ”

Goodbye Brightliners: MTA’s oldest metro cars bid farewell in their last run after nearly 58 years https://avtoinsurance.net/goodbye-brightliners-mtas-oldest-metro-cars-bid-farewell-in-their-last-run-after-nearly-58-years/ Sun, 09 Jan 2022 20:00:20 +0000 https://avtoinsurance.net/goodbye-brightliners-mtas-oldest-metro-cars-bid-farewell-in-their-last-run-after-nearly-58-years/ Dozens of railroad enthusiasts jumped aboard a final ride in the nearly 58-year-old R32 subway cars during their last run on Sunday, January 9, before the Metropolitan Transportation Authority permanently retired the models.

Dozens of railroad enthusiasts jumped aboard a final ride in the nearly 58-year-old R32 subway cars during their last run on Sunday, January 9, before the Metropolitan Transportation Authority permanently retired the models.

Vintage trains nicknamed “Brightliners” for their shiny corrugated stainless steel hulls traveled along the Q Line from Brighton Beach to the Upper East Side for their final passenger celebration service after first hitting the tracks almost six decades ago.

“It’s the end of an era,” said rider Zorick Johnson, who showed off a model-sized R32 and donned a train conductor’s hat. “It is an honor for me to be here on this final round to say goodbye to an MTA workhorse.”

The same year that the British invasion brought the Beatles to America and the World’s Fair opened in Queens, the R32 debuted on September 9, 1964 in the New York City subway with a celebratory ride on commuter rail tracks from Mott Haven Yard to Grand Central Terminal.

The train was greeted by “the Transit Authority 20-piece gang in green and gold uniforms,” ​​the New York Times reported at the time.

The Sunday featured the original two front cars of this ride with blue painted doors and a front banner marking the initial order of 600 cars from the Transit Authority.

Built by the Budd Company of Philadelphia, the R32s were the first mass-produced stainless steel cars purchased by the TA and weighed about 4,000 pounds less than other models at the time, but it was the shiny exterior. that made them unique.

“It’s one of the coolest, exterior cars we’ve ever had,” said Jodi Shapiro, curator at the New York Transit Museum. “Even on a day like today, when it’s cloudy and overcast, they still look fantastic.”

Inside, the R32s have a sleek, minimalist design, with only rows of fiberglass benches on either side, along with analog traffic signs indicating the route.

A front window allows straphangers to have an unobstructed view of the front of the train, a popular feature that newer cars lack.

“You don’t see trains like this anymore,” said runner Sydney McGinn.

(LR) Wessley Willsey, 10, with his mother Amy, father Will and brother Emmet, 5, traveled from Wappingers Falls, New York, to the Five Boroughs to see the R32 subway cars on January 9.

Trains began to run on what is now the Q line, and MTA has more recently deployed them to lines A, C, J, and Z.

They originally had a lifespan of 35 years, according to the Times report, but passed that two-decade deadline when they last scheduled passenger service in 2020.

“They’ve been through snowstorms, graffiti, violence, scratches on the glass, and the cars are still going, they’re still strong,” Johnson said, knocking on the door glass to make his point. of view.

The MTA – itself a year younger than the R32s – has twice planned to retire the old trains in 2010 and 2020, but brought them back to replace the faulty new models.

The Transit Museum has organized four retirement weekends starting in December, the first three on Line D and the last Sunday tour on its original route.

The museum almost called off public events after vandals took over the irreplaceable and original seats on the first weekend.

Many fans young and old were happy to see the organization keep the show on track so they could bid farewell to the trains.

Wessley Willsey, 10, came down from upstate Wappingers Falls with his family, including his brother Emmer, 5, his mother Amy and his father Will.

The youngster said he liked the R32 for its “sound, the noise, the look”.

“I can imagine how it works,” he added.

A pair of MTA bus operators moved from the roads to the rails to see the subway trains they had used since their childhood.

“I grew up riding them and like them better than other models,” said Javi Batista, who joined the ride with fellow Queens bus driver Ismael Santos. “I just wanted to see them for the very last time, before they left.

Maine Voices: Conviction for domestic violence murder does not bode well for women’s safety https://avtoinsurance.net/maine-voices-conviction-for-domestic-violence-murder-does-not-bode-well-for-womens-safety/ Sat, 08 Jan 2022 09:00:00 +0000 https://avtoinsurance.net/maine-voices-conviction-for-domestic-violence-murder-does-not-bode-well-for-womens-safety/ Maine’s first domestic violence killer in 2020 was convicted in the dying days of 2021.

Maine’s first domestic violence killer in 2020 was convicted in the dying days of 2021. And based on what has happened, it will be even more dangerous to be a woman in that state in 2022.

Newport and Maine State Police officers investigate the scene at 16 North St. in Newport on January 10, 2020, after receiving a call to 911. Frederick Allen Jr. had pleaded not guilty to murder for the murder by strangulation of his wife, Anielka Allen. Last month he pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 18 years in prison, all but 12 suspended. He could be released in seven to seven and a half years after being granted good behavior leave. Molly Shelly / Morning Sentry

Frederick Allen Jr., 42, of Newport will likely only serve seven years in prison for the strangulation murder of his wife, Anielka Allen.

The sentence, handed down in Bangor on December 28, along with the media coverage, echoes the domestic abusers’ playbook: minimize abuse and return it to the victim.

Here are the facts: Anielka Allen, 37, has been strangled to death by her husband for 20 years. Her body, found in a bathroom in their home, has been described as “black and blue” with no injuries “at all” on Frederick. She was about to graduate from college. His car was packed for the trip to leave him.

According to media reports, his post-traumatic stress disorder from military service was a factor in the obscurely short prison sentence. (Another assumed factor was the fact that he was a first offender. The first time his violence was brought to the attention of authorities, yes. But there is no way it was his. first criminal violence in marriage in two decades. Domestic violence often goes unreported!)

As for PTSD, why is it only touted in the case (mainly) of men who have served in the military?

A few days before Anielka’s death, she allegedly “smashed the glass of a framed family photo, then used a shard of glass to scratch her face from the photo.” If this isn’t a description of the stress and trauma of a soul-destroying marriage entered into at the age of 17, what is it?

And by the way, where are the benefits of IL for the countless female veterans of the one-sided war on domestic violence? This war is being fought in what should be the safe areas of our bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms. The enemy is someone who claims to love us. And this is a war we do not engage in.

A daughter of the couple said that half an hour before her mother was found dead, her father had her mother in a headache and she saw in his eyes how “he passes out when pushed to the limit. “. (Notice the word “push” – domestic abusers are great at making family members feel like they are triggering the abuse).

The blackening of the abuser, or zoning, is something that victims of domestic violence mention over and over again as cues for the actual horror movies that follow. In my opinion, this state is just another way to get and keep control and escape responsibility. Allen was aware enough during this supposed blackout to tell his daughter to leave the scene, so that he could continue on his murderous path.

Media reports on the case are interspersed with quotes from family members who misrepresent domestic violence and insult the victim, including “the love relationship (emphasis added) was “rocky” “and” he never raised a hand on her, but she hit him. “

Worse still the parody of justice in this femicide, he was pushed by a troika of women.

Judge Ann Murray had the power to impose a sentence of 30 years in prison for her conviction for manslaughter. The time spent awaiting trial and possibly “good behavior leave” is worth seven years for killing his wife with his bare hands. When Allen becomes a free man, he will still only be in his late forties, so many encounters await him.

Deputy Attorney General Lisa Brogue, according to news reports, said she was “happy” the case is resolved and respects the judge’s ruling.

Caitlyn Smith, Allen’s defense attorney, in fact said, according to news reports, “It’s a tragedy what happened with Anielka, but it’s also a tragedy what happened with Anielka. happened with Fred. “

But the cost of the most disgusting statement in the entire saga, and possibly 2021, goes to the killer himself. And in my opinion, that statement alone should have given him seven years in prison:

Allen told the court he didn’t understand why his wife wanted to leave him. And – wait – “I love her with all my heart.”

THE GAME

Teams: Tarleton (6-8) at Utah Valley (9-4)

Dated: 3 p.m. CT on Saturday, January 1

Site: UCCU Center in Orem, Utah

TELEVISION: ESPN +

RADIO: Tarleton Sports Network, KTRL 90.5 FM

Casey hogan, read by read

ABOUT THE MATCHUP

The UCCU Event Center epitomizes a quintessential place for Tarleton to spend the New Year’s holidays, which is rooted in the celebration of new beginnings, luck and prosperity.

Tarleton’s first match in 2022 takes place at the site of one of the most important victories of 2021 and in school history and which has symbolized his rise to the highest level of amateur athletics.

The Texans captured the college’s first win in the Western Athletic Conference with a 70-62 victory over Utah Valley on Jan. 29 in Orem.

Since then, Tarleton has won nine Division I wins and a 5-2 record over his conference counterparts, including his 83-69 triumph over Dixie State on Thursday.

Now the Texans are tasked with chasing a skyrocketing end through 2021 upon their return to northern Utah. Tarleton ended December by winning five of his last six football games and notched four straight WAC wins – including three on the road – dating back to last season.

And a second straight win over the Wolverines is undoubtedly a clear sound for the New Year.

A VICTORY OVER THE UTAH VALLEY WOULD BE

  • Giving Tarleton his sixth win in his last seven outings

  • Extend Tarleton’s winning streak at the WAC to five games dating back to last season

  • Give the Texans their fourth consecutive WAC road victory

  • Be Tarleton’s sixth road win in WAC

  • Improves Texans road record at WAC to 6-7

  • Signify Tarleton’s second straight win over Wolverines and make all-time streak 2-1 in favor of Texans

  • Raise Tarleton’s record in January matches to 4-6 as a D1 schedule

  • Be the ninth real victory for the Texans in D1

  • Mark Tarleton’s second road win of the season

  • Sends Tarleton to his first 2-0 start in conference since the 2016-17 season

  • Set Tarleton’s all-time record in games played in Utah 4-2

  • Spike Gillispie road record at Tarleton at 6-7

  • Giving Gillispie his 165th career D1 victory

NOTABLE TEXAN

  • Tarleton earned his 14-point victory over the Trailblazers despite missing five players and two coaches due to COVID-19 protocols. The Texans have only registered six players, four of whom have played the entire game.

  • The Texans had their best 3-point shooting performance of the winter in St. George, reversing a downtown high of 10-20 attempts. Tarleton also shot 50% (29-58) from the field.

  • The Texans continue to lead the WAC in free throw percentage (74.4). They rank second for turnover margin (+4.64) and third for defensive score (62.4 points per game).

  • The team’s rotation margin is tied for 25th nationally with Kansas and Vanderbilt and leads all reclassification teams. The Texans finished with a positive turnover differential in 12 of 14 games this year.

  • Tarleton has reversed 32 three-pointers in his last three games. Since the start of the season 34-137 (19.6%) from downtown, the Texans have connected on 45% of their 3 points.

  • The Texans are ahead of their opponents by 50 combined points in the first half this season. They have led in intermission for six straight games and are 5-1 in that streak.

  • Tarleton limited his opponents to 57 points per game during his four-game winning streak in the WAC. Dixie State was the first team to eclipse 60 points during that span.

  • Tarleton’s 83 points against the Trailblazers were the highest ever against a D1 opponent.

  • Tarleton is one of only two WAC teams with a pair of top scorers in Gipson (14.7 points per game) and Tahj Small (14.4 pages per day). They rank seventh and eleventh respectively.

INDIVIDUAL NOTABLES

  • Freddy hicks scored a game, a season and a career-high 27 points on 9-18 shots in Tarleton’s victory on Thursday. His 27 points scored were tied for the second most in a single game by any Texan this season.

  • Hicks increased his scoring average from 8.1 points per game to 9.4 points per game following his performance on Thursday. He delivered his best performances in purple and white in the conference road games. His three double-doubles in 2021 came from Stephenville. Hicks’ 27 points against Dixie State on Thursday were the most important in a true D1 road game by a Texan.

  • Javontae Hopkins (18 points), Noah mcdavid (17 points) and Gipson watch (13 points) joined Hicks in double digits. All four players have spent the full 40 minutes. Hopkins’ 18 points were a career high in D1.

  • Hopkins picked a night as good as any to deliver his best D1 performance with the Texans shorthanded. Hopkins went 7-9 (78 percent) from the field. He scored seven unanswered points early in the second half to keep Tarleton in the double-digit lead at 55-43 with 2:00 p.m. to go.

  • Hopkins, McDavid and Jayshawn moore got their first career debut at St. George. Moore played 22 minutes.

  • Gipson is Tarleton’s leading scorer with 14.7 points per outing. He had a game-high 24 points in the Texans’ victory over UVU last season with a 10-10 mark at the foul line. Gipson’s 10 free throws were an individual high in the WAC last season.

  • Gipson is four points away from becoming Tarleton’s first D1 era player to reach 500 points. He’s averaging 19.2 points per game in Tarleton’s last five outings. The 5-11 senior scored in double digits in 10 of Tarleton’s 13 WAC cases.

  • For the first time in the whole season, Shamir Bugs did not record a robbery Thursday against the Trailblazers. He is still part of the national elite of ball defenders. Only 10 more players stole more than Bugs (29). He is tied for 30th among all D1 players in interceptions per game (2.17). Bugs ranks second at the WAC in both categories.

Arkansas’ recent bouts on the ground were highlighted by poor defense and Wednesday night was no different.

Playing without SEC leader in interceptions, JD Notae, due to illness, the Razorbacks had no answer for a Mississippi State team not known for their offensive prowess. The Bulldogs scored on 38 of their 67 possessions and shot 50% in the second half, moving away for an 81-68 victory.

It’s been a two-half story in almost every game in Arkansas this season and head coach Eric Musselman has said his squad needs to find a way to play good basketball from start to finish.

“As a group we have to understand that you have to play really hard against good teams for 40 minutes,” said Musselman. “And you have to have a competitive nature on yourself that if another team is doing a race you have to be able to counter that race.”

After a hotly contested first half, the Bulldogs pounced on the Razorbacks from the start in the second half. Arkansas managed to bar three runs at 2:56 pm, but Mississippi State responded with an 18-8 run that put the game out of reach.

It was like the Bulldogs couldn’t miss, and the Hogs were not helping each other on the defensive at all.

“I think we just didn’t come out with the same energy,” Arkansas forward Stanley Umude said. “We let slip a bit, and we couldn’t get back into it, but it’s our responsibility. They played well, but at the end of the day we have to be better and be able to prepare for a full 40 minute game. “

Umude led the team with 19 points in the game, including 13 in the second half, but had just three rebounds – none in 15 minutes after halftime. In fact, the Bulldogs dominated the glass in the second half, passing Arkansas 23-12.

Of Mississippi State’s 23 second-half rebounds, nine came on the offensive glass. The Bulldogs turned them into nine second chance points. Add the board advantage to 17 turnovers – including seven interceptions – and that was the recipe for success against the Hogs.

“I think we did a great job in the first half bouncing the basketball and not very well in the second half,” Musselman said. “When you add the difference in the offensive rebounds, the turnovers we had, then you add the fact that they took 28 free throws to our 14, I’m surprised it’s a 13-point game and not one more. large margin. “

Arkansas have now surrendered more than 80 points in three of their last four games. Each of those games resulted in a loss and the Razorbacks are only 3-12 when they allowed at least 80 points in the Musselman era.

The key to success for a team coached by Musselman is playing locked defense for 40 minutes. Arkansas have played with soft, low intensity coverage on hardwood this season, and it is starting to show in the final score.

Last year, the Razorbacks finished the season with No. 10 Adjusted Defensive Efficiency in the country, according to KenPom, and they made a run for the Elite Eight. Even in Musselman’s first season, they were 57th in this category. After Wednesday’s games, however, Arkansas is No. 71 in adjusted defensive efficiency.

There is a six-day gap between now and next Tuesday’s game with Vanderbilt. It will be vital for the Razorbacks to find an identity as a team and to understand things at this end of the pitch.

“We always feel like we didn’t play our best game,” Umude said. “We think we just have to put everything in place with a 40 minute game. We just have to build. Get out of that losing streak and just build.”

Arkansas will have a chance to return to the winning column when they host the Commodores next Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. CT in Fayetteville. The game will be broadcast on the SEC network.

The Bradley Symphony Center has been practicing this holiday season. From Holiday Pops to Handel’s Messiah and Chanticleer to Canadian Brass, the music filled the room on the weekends and spilled over into the week.

This venture was a welcome change from the traditional model. Last December, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra was virtually exiled from its home at the Marcus Performing Arts Center, forced to perform in other venues as touring shows and that sticky chestnut and tutus, “The Nutcracker,” took over Uihlein Hall. Those days are over. Since moving into his new home at 212 W. Wisconsin Ave. in October, the MSO went from tenant to owner, creating its own schedule and controlling its own destiny.

The Orchestra’s “new” home is actually one of Milwaukee’s oldest performance venues: a movie theater that opened in 1931 as the Warner. In his book “Milwaukee Movie Palaces”, Larry Widen, the ranking authority on the subject, described the theater as “the most expensive and the most elegant ever built in the city”. The Warner had a capacity of 2,500 seats and a construction budget of $ 2.5 million, or nearly $ 50 million in today’s currency.

The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra opened its season on October 1 at its new home, the Bradley Symphony Center at 212 W. Wisconsin Ave.

The new theater was the crowning glory of the cinema palace era in Milwaukee. Each such show house was an elegant venue that strove to treat its clients like royalty. Some of them – the Egyptian, the Venetian, the Avalon, the National – sought to transport these customers to specific places far removed from the mundane streets outside their doors, while others were mixtures of multiple styles. . The Oriental featured Buddhist, Islamic, East Indian and a variety of other themes, while OSM’s Warner had a split personality. Guests entered through a sparkling, uncluttered Art Deco lobby, then sat down to watch Gable and Garland in a neo-baroque auditorium adorned with murals of Renaissance courtiers.

Like other theaters, the Warner Theater in Milwaukee sometimes hosted church services.  Here, the Greater Milwaukee Council of Churches sponsored a three hour Protestant Good Friday service at the Warner on April 20, 1945. This photo was published in the Milwaukee Journal on April 21, 1945.

The opening night in the New Palace – May 1, 1931 – was an event fit for a king. The Milwaukee Sentinel said it was “as lively and tumultuous as a notable Hollywood premiere” and went on to describe the Warner-style action: Thousands of people gathered, screaming and shouting, movie cameras went on. clicked at a frantic pace, the flashes of the photographers created coils of lightning. As an “illuminated plane” circled overhead and “society women in magnificent stoats” descended from their cars, radio station WISN provided second-to-second coverage of the show.

12 key images of the Packers’ 24-22 win over the Browns https://avtoinsurance.net/12-key-images-of-the-packers-24-22-win-over-the-browns/ Sun, 26 Dec 2021 20:31:00 +0000 https://avtoinsurance.net/12-key-images-of-the-packers-24-22-win-over-the-browns/ It doesn’t matter if Santa gave you the coolest toy on the shelves or some charcoal on Saturday morning, the Packers made sure everyone (except the Browns fans) had a Merry Christmas with a 24-22 victory over Cleveland, winning their fourth straight W. and getting closer and closer to locking the NFC seed.

It doesn’t matter if Santa gave you the coolest toy on the shelves or some charcoal on Saturday morning, the Packers made sure everyone (except the Browns fans) had a Merry Christmas with a 24-22 victory over Cleveland, winning their fourth straight W. and getting closer and closer to locking the NFC seed.

Of course, in classic Green Bay fashion, they couldn’t make things warm and cozy for the fans. Instead, as has become tradition, the Packers made things even more tense than watching Grandpa climb a ladder and attempt to hang Christmas lights on the house, requiring a final interception (of who other than defensive MVP Rasul Douglas) to seal the victory. Again, it wasn’t exactly a confidence-building victory, but it was a victory. Best of all, in the process, the special teams department wasn’t horrible! A REAL CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!

And you know what: maybe it was after all a confidence building! At this point, if the Packers find themselves in a tight playoff game, I know who was there before this season and who has pulled it off – over and over again.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. For now, let’s pour ourselves a nightcap of holiday eggnog, snuggle up by the tree, and remember all the wonderful Packers moments and images this Christmas show had to offer – 12 of them. them, to be exact, in honor of Christmas days as well as a certain outstanding quarterback now atop the Green Bay record books.

X

They may have had to work over Christmas, but many Packers players came in with the festive spirit, decked out in their finery. You can call them ugly Christmas sweaters (I mean, is that … a dinosaur on the one in the upper right corner?) But as always, winning makes everything beautiful.

Marcedes Lewis sees your Grinch Christmas sweater and lifts you up …

Sadly, Lewis hasn’t been able to wear these amazing studs because no one is a bigger Grinch when it comes to having fun than the NFL. But maybe Lewis was happy with that because all Grinch shoes suitably come in two sizes too small.

Green Bay picked up another victory, with the defense certainly partly to thank – but that sure doesn’t mean they still don’t have work to do heading into the playoffs. In Saturday’s case, their running defense was embarrassingly exposed, leaving Nick Chubb to run wild for 126 yards and one touchdown plus 58 yards in the air. And when Chubb wasn’t plowing the defense like an open one-horse sled, D’Ernest Johnson was also successful with 58 yards on just four carries. They got through this game – but you probably won’t play awkward teams like the Browns in the playoffs.

It’s been a, uh, polarizing year for Aaron Rodgers, but on Saturday it was all smiles and good humor at Lambeau – and not just because it was Christmas. With that pass and Allen Lazard’s impressive run-after-the-catch, the reigning MVP (and current multiple contender) is now alone atop the Green Bay pass record book, edging out Brett. Favre with his 443rd score as a packer. Rodgers would then add two more, just to make his place at the top of official SUPER’s and bolster the argument that he’s Green Bay’s all-time best quarterback.

Aaron RodgersX

And to think he wanted to leave – and some Packers fans did. 2021: a bizarre, unpredictable year!

Never take it for granted that the Packers went from one Hall of Fame quarterback to another Hall of Fame quarterback with virtually no intermission in between. Not all teams are so lucky – take, for example, the Cleveland Browns.

Baker Mayfield gets sackedX

While a quarterback had an unforgettable Christmas, his opponent on the other side certainly had one to forget. Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield had a blue Christmas on Saturday, being sacked five times while throwing almost as many interceptions (four). A tough day at the office indeed – but at least his progressive TV commercials are funny. He’s got that for him!

It’s pretty crazy that the Packers have an incredible quarterback MVP as well as one of the top five wide receivers in the game – and yet he’s a guy on the defensive practice squad who wasn’t even in the Green Bay system at the start of the season who could be the real most valuable player on the team. Taking over as things looked dire after Jaire Alexander’s injury, Rasul Douglas kept Green Bay’s defense together – and literally kept a few games in the win column for the Packers on his own, scoring key interceptions like both Saturdays. If Alexander can still come back this season and the Packers can cover him and Douglas AND Stokes, we could have the most powerful defense in the league just in time for the most important time of the year.

Aaron Rodgers and Davante AdamsX

Aaron Rodgers rightly got all the attention on Saturday afternoon (and all this season, for that matter), but let’s not forget the man who has received so, so, so much of his passes and touchdowns: Davante Adams , who once again had an incredible game, collecting not one but two TDs with 114 yards. He’s been Rodgers’ star threat and emergency escape valve for years now, and the quarterback wouldn’t be far from his winning records – let alone Super Bowls – without him. Hopefully they know that too and stay together after this season – preferably in green and gold, of course.

One of these days, the Packers’ defense won’t be saved by a last-second defensive stance – but luckily, Christmas wasn’t that day. Things looked tense with just a two-point lead in the dying minutes and the Browns behind the wheel… but Mayfield then threw his fourth and most fatal interception of the day. Was there perhaps illegal contact on Rasul Douglas’ play? May be. Are the Packers going to get their butt bitten during one of those games where they do not keep the boot on the neck? Probably. I don’t care because we won and it was Christmas? ABSO-FA-LA-LA-LA-LUTÉLY!

Aaron RodgersX

Of course, Aaron Rodgers is the focal point of this post-game pic – but we have to talk about Santa: Freelance Sports Videographer. The guy delivered gifts all over the world the day before and always showed up for work on the sidelines on Saturday afternoon. It’s so admirable, I’m finally going to forgive him for never buying me an N64 all those years ago.

Enjoy this clip of Rashan Gary doing a little victory dance and let his joy fuel you throughout the final week of 2021. We’ll see you in 2022, Green Bay Packers – hopefully through February 13th.

Coup Book Vol. 8: Erik Spoelstra’s Favorite Play, The Unwritten Miami Collective, and the Let It Fly Tariff https://avtoinsurance.net/coup-book-vol-8-erik-spoelstras-favorite-play-the-unwritten-miami-collective-and-the-let-it-fly-tariff/ Fri, 24 Dec 2021 15:22:40 +0000 https://avtoinsurance.net/coup-book-vol-8-erik-spoelstras-favorite-play-the-unwritten-miami-collective-and-the-let-it-fly-tariff/ The Miami HEAT, still shorthanded largely through injury, is 20-13 and sits 4th in the Eastern Conference.

The Miami HEAT, still shorthanded largely through injury, is 20-13 and sits 4th in the Eastern Conference. Here’s what we noticed and noticed:

IVAN TAKES CHARGE

“My favorite game, by far, without a doubt, of the season and the game and everything.”

This is Erik Spoelstra speaking after Miami’s scathing victory over the Detroit Pistons on Thursday night. Here is the piece he is talking about:

“These guys might have competition for their entire careers and the rest of their lives, which can draw more accusations,” Spoelstra continued. “Who ended up being charged? “

“It’s not a double accusation. I got the charge, ”Lowry made sure to let everyone know about ten minutes later.

Miami drew six charges against the Pistons on Thursday, the most in a single game for any team in this or the past three seasons. They now have 54 over the year. Second place is Brooklyn with 27.

“We don’t have shot blockers, so we have to find ways to protect the paint,” Lowry said. “That’s why I’m taking the lead. I think it’s contagious, to help and to be in the right places and to sacrifice your body. A charge deflates for the opposing team.

Lowry leads both the team and the league with 19 charges taken this year. No one on the HEAT catches up with him, but the race for second place is hotly contested with Dedmon, Tucker, Strus and Vincent, all between five and seven.

“We are small,” Strus said. “We are undersized. We have guys who are just serious and in the right places at the right times. Kyle is generally a league leader in charge, and that’s a place I want to be, too. I love to take the lead.

NOT WRITTEN, NOT GENERATED

You may have heard before that this season’s HEAT squad is filled with undrafted players. The league’s undrafted population is only growing with so many new players signed with hardship exemptions as regulars come in and out of health and safety protocols, but HEAT is still among the best in the league with eight. players (Robinson, Strus, Vincent, Martin, Dedmon, Yurtseven, Haslem and Garrett) who were not selected in the first two rounds of the draft.

What you might not know is how the production Miami gets from these players compares historically.

The 83 points Miami earned from undrafted players against the Orlando Magic on Dec. 17 was the second biggest this season (86, Houston) and in a tie five for eighth ever in a single game. The record for points not drafted is 94, set by the Indiana Pacers last May. HEAT got 27 points from Gabe Vincent and 32 from Max Strus in Orlando, each setting a new career high.

Miami also totaled 1,412 undrafted points this season, which is the sixth-highest number of all time in the first 33 games of the season. This season’s Houston Rockets, led by Christian Wood with 17 points per night, are currently the all-time leader in this category with 1,687 points. There’s a good chance they’ll break the undrafted points record in a season set by the 1999-2000 Orlando Magic, led by Darrell Armstrong, Chucky Atkins, John Amaechi, Bo Outlaw and Ben Wallace.

Undrafted players have always been kind of a market inefficiency just because it all depends on what you can do with them as a franchise. If you have the necessary combination of good scouting and good player development, there’s nothing stopping you from signing a player, all other teams in the league have an equal chance of making it to court. For teams like the HEAT that are used to trading their draft picks, especially second-round players, getting first or second round production from the free agent pool is very beneficial.

It’s a different game today than it used to be. When Udonis Haslem was not drafted in 2002, he went to play in France for a year while working on his conditioning before signing with Miami the following offseason. With the NBA G-League an increasingly viable option for players coming out or even bypassing college, and most NBA franchises tied to a single team, you now have teams signing players like Duncan Robinson after the draft. , or Strus and Vincent from other G-League teams, and fully integrating them into their programs. Summer League. Training camp. Off-season training. G-League. Two-way contracts. It’s much more of a true minor league system than it has ever been before, and as such records for undrafted players, scoring and otherwise, are increasingly likely to be broken.

THE BLITZ GIVES, AND …

Blitzing the pick-and-roll is more popular than ever, strangely enough. After more than half a decade of the league’s most popular covers focusing on keeping players off the spin and the ball in front, it was truly surprising how the average NBA team performed. more pick-and-rolls this season (3.1 per 100 possessions) than they did in 2013-14 (2.4 per 100), which goes as far back as follow-up data for the second spectrum. Granted, the blitz was already losing popularity by then with only Finals-related HEAT supporting its use, but there’s no doubt that teams like Portland and Minnesota have themselves fallen out of the trend. Miami led the league last season with about nine blitzes per 100 possessions, while the Blazers and Timberwolves are at that number today.

HEAT blitz use has declined this year, for a while, as Erik Spoelstra focused coverage on the Miami benches when Dewayne Dedmon was on the ground. But now, with Dedmon – who injured his knee and left Thursday’s game against Detroit – in place of an injured Bam Adebayo, they’re back to nine blitz for 100 themselves.

It is predictable when Spoelstra will use it. If a team relies heavily on a single, heavily used playmaker, especially one who threatens to withdraw from three behind a screen – Doncic, Curry, Lillard, Beal, Young, etc. – so the only surprise is that Miami doesn’t. don’t jump two on the ball and force more one-dimensional players to make plays.

Just as they didn’t waste time giving Doncic the All-Star treatment during his rookie year, Miami did the same with Cade Cunningham last week. The expected results unfolded as Cunningham took just four shots (Detroit missed Jerami Grant) and committed four turnovers. But for the most important part of the game, Cunningham was in the lead enough to play in cover and get over the weaker shooter.

“In the fourth quarter, they released themselves for open days,” Spoelstra said. “Cunningham made some good games with our traps, with our blitz, just intoxicating games for a young player.”

In the end, the HEAT lost this game because they couldn’t muster enough attacks, and aggressive cover was absolutely the right move given Detroit’s lack of playmakers and shooters (8 of 32 out of three in that one). But credit is due to the No.1 pick in the draft for adjusting on the fly and making two big plays on the stretch with Miami giving him blitz respect.

THE LET IT FLY RATE

We already discussed Miami’s recent three-point rate hike earlier this week, so we don’t need to dwell on that, but in this article we have noted that Miami takes three points at one rate. historically high. So, for proper context, here are the top 10 teams since 2010 when it comes to the percentage of the team’s total field goals taken from beyond the arc:

1. Houston (2018-19): 51.9
2. Houston (2017-18): 50.2
3. Houston (2019-20): 50.1
4. Utah (2021-22): 49.1
5. Utah (2020-21): 48.8
6. Golden State (2021-22): 47.3
7. Houston (2016-17): 46.2
8. Minnesota (2021-22): 45.9
9. Houston (2020-21): 45.9
10. Dallas (2019-20): 45.7

In December 11 games since the fall of Adebayo, the HEAT is at 47% (this is a different version of the metric we used in the previous article, for historical purposes), so they would be right at # 8 on it. the wolves of this season.

If you’re curious, the league leader in the 1989-90 season was Cleveland at 12.2 percent. Ten years later, the Boston Celtics led the league at 25.2 percent, followed by the HEAT 2000-01 at 22.1 percent. Different times, those.

Mouthfuls

-HEAT has the lowest free throw rate in the league in December. This follows, given that they missed the only two players on the squad averaging over three free throws per game. Since reaching the line is a skill, it’s not fair to expect other players to suddenly commit more shooting faults just because the ball is more in their hands. This is not how it works. Something to keep in mind the next time there is a big free throw disparity with opponent Miami. Sure, there are missed calls in every game, but overall free throws aren’t part of the winning formula for this version of HEAT.

-Since November 1 – it’s not just an injury issue – Miami has fallen to 15th in offensive rebound percentage (parcleaningtheglass.com). Over the same span, they allow teams to transition on live rebounds more often (30.5% of possessions) than any other team outside of Sacramento (33.4%). It’s still one of the more interesting statistical relationships to watch out for, and it’s pure cost-benefit analysis for Spoelstra. Obviously, there’s value on the added possessions that come with hovering around the league average on the offensive glass.

– No team in the league commits less live turnovers with 48.6% of Miami’s gifts leading to a save.

Udonis Haslem’s third seven-point quarter against Detroit was his first quarter since April 2019, and his second quarter since November 2015.

– Coming in December, the last time HEAT gave a green light three in the last 40 seconds of a game was Tyler Herro’s memorable shot against Philadelphia in December 2019. Miami now has two of those shots in the 10 last few days, with Gabe Vincent hitting the game winner against the 76ers and Max Strus hitting a corner against Detroit on Thursday.
