Washington’s Browning breaks school record for career TD passes

Jake Browning is officially the most prolific passer in Washington history, as the star quarterback broke the school record for career touchdown passes during Saturday’s game against Utah.

With a 7-yard dump off to Lavon Coleman in the opening quarter, Browning broke the mark previously held by Keith Price at 75.

It's a record-breaking night for Washington, as earlier in the contest Myles Gaskin set the school record for most rushing touchdowns in a career.

Carmelo passes Iverson on NBA’s all-time scoring list

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony moved up the NBA's all-time scoring list Thursday night, leaping one of his former Hall of Fame teammates in the process.

With his 12th and 13th points against the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center, Anthony passed Allen “The Answer” Iverson for 24th place.

Anthony and Iverson, ironically enough, played together for the Nuggets from 2006 through 2008, although they never got the team more than a single win in the opening round of the playoffs.

Entering Thursday's matchup in the Mile High City, Anthony was averaging 20.1 points on 41.5 percent shooting from the field and 32.8 percent from behind the arc through 10 appearances for OKC.

Gregg Popovich passes Phil Jackson on all-time wins list for head coaches

Move aside, Zen Master.

The San Antonio Spurs pulled out a convincing 112-95 victory over the Phoenix Suns at the AT&T Center Sunday night. In doing so, Gregg Popovich moved past Phil Jackson on the all-time wins list for coaches with his 1,156th in the regular season.

Coach Wins Career
1 Don Nelson 1335 1977-2010
2 Lenny Wilkens 1332 1970-2005
3 Jerry Sloan 1221 1980-2011
4 Pat Riley 1219 1982-2008
5 George Karl 1175 1985-2016
6 Gregg Popovich 1156 1997-2018
7 Phil Jackson 1155 1990-2011
8 Larry Brown 1098 1977-2011
9 Rick Adelman 1042 1989-2014
10 Bill Fitch 944 1971-1998

(courtesy: Basketball-Reference.com)

Of the coaches in the top 10, Popovich has the second-strongest winning percentage (.694) behind Jackson (.704). His 166 victories in the playoffs are also the third-most ever behind both Jackson (229) and Pat Riley (171).

Jackson is still the leader by a wide margin when it comes to rings, though, capturing a record 11 titles with the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, while Popovich has the third-most ever with five.

Following the win over Phoenix, Popovich declined to talk basketball with reporters out of respect for the victims of the mass shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs Sunday morning, which is roughly 30 miles southeast of San Antonio.

The Spurs improved to 6-4, and will host the visiting Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday.

Steelers’ don’t trade Bryant as trade deadline passes

Disgruntled Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant was not traded by Tuesday's 4:00 p.m. ET trade deadline and remains with the team heading into Week 9.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports teams called about acquiring the receiver's services, but the Steelers declined.

Rumors circulated around Bryant's future with the Steelers following a series of social media outbursts from the receiver.

He was benched for the team’s Week 8 game against the Detroit Lions, allowing rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster to go off with seven receptions for 193 yards and a touchdown.

Bryant has totaled just 18 receptions on a modest 36 targets, recording just 234 yards and a lone touchdown.

The Steelers selected Bryant with the 118th pick in the 2014 draft, but a series of off-field issues have limited him to just 28 career games.

Roethlisberger can’t promise Bryant he’ll throw him more passes

Ben Roethlisberger can no longer deny that receiver Martavis Bryant is unhappy. But he can’t guarantee he’ll meet Bryant’s demands, either.

After catching just one pass on Sunday, Bryant threatened that if the Pittsburgh Steelers don’t include him more in the offense, he wants out of town.

Roethlisberger responded to those demands on Wednesday.

“I’m not going to be a doctor and promise I’m going to save your life,” Roethlisberger said, according to Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

“I’m going to tell him, ‘If you’re on your details and we’re working together and I trust that you’re going to be where we’re supposed to be and you’re there, good things will happen.'”

Bryant was suspended all of last season for a repeated violation of the league’s personal conduct policy. Through the first seven games of this season, Bryant has just 18 receptions for 234 yards and a touchdown.

Roethlisberger said he had no clue Bryant was growing unhappy and would have preferred the wideout voice any displeasure with him directly.

“I’m the guy that throws the ball, so if you’re unhappy about something, come talk to me,” the quarterback said. “Maybe there is something we can figure out together to make it better.”

It doesn't appear things will get better for Bryant any time soon, as he was demoted to the scout team at Wednesday's practice, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.

Ralphie made waves in stand-up comedy throughout the late 90’s and early 2000’s, with a huge boost in 2003 when he came in second on “Last Comic Standing.”

He is survived by his wife of 10 years, fellow comedienne Lahna Turner and their two children, April June May and August James May.

May he rest in peace.

Aaron Rodgers becomes fastest QB to hit 300 career TD passes

Aaron Rodgers etched his name in the record books Sunday, as the Green Bay Packers quarterback became the fastest in NFL history to reach 300 career touchdown passes.

The veteran pivot hit the mark in his 144th game, connecting with Ty Montgomery on a shovel pass in the fourth quarter against the Atlanta Falcons.

Rodgers reached the milestone 13 games before legends Peyton Manning and Dan Marino, who both hit 300 touchdowns in their 157th career contest.

Clemson’s Bryant passes 1st test in replacing Deshaun Watson

Once the dust settled on Clemson’s national title win this offseason, Tigers fans began collectively holding their breath, while waiting to see who would replace Deshaun Watson behind center.

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney gave Kelly Bryant that opportunity and so far the junior looks up to the task.

Bryant wasn’t spectacular, but a performance of 236 yards through the air and 77 yards on the ground to go along with two total touchdowns, was more than enough to power Clemson to an easy victory over Kent State.

Perhaps what was more important than what Bryant did, was what he didn't do. The signal caller didn't force many throws and was content spreading the ball around to several different receivers, while letting Clemson's tremendous athletes on offense make plays. A total of 15 Tigers players posted at least one reception in the victory.

Bryant didn’t try and do too much, which can often lead to mistakes for a young quarterback. He did what he said he would do last month when he was asked how he’s going to replace Watson.

“It’s about every question, and I answer it to the best of my ability,” Bryant told David Hale of ESPN in August. “But I don’t try to be Deshaun Watson.”

Bryant may not be Watson, but he has a chance to execute the offense like his predecessor. The two possess a similar skill set and although Bryant is very much inexperienced, he’s had the benefit of learning the offense behind Watson through two runs to the national title game and one championship.

Filling in for a legendary quarterback is never easy and thinking you can exceed who came before almost always ends in disappointment, so Bryant’s toughest challenge all year may be managing his expectations.

One victory over Kent State doesn’t constitute a reason for the Tigers to start planning another parade, but this start from Bryant will at least help fans breathe a little easier.
