first_img1) HOUSTON TEXANS: +14 in sacks leads to being +10 in turnover margin. After a hard-fought win against Chicago, it will be nice to be home against Jacksonville.2) ATLANTA FALCONS: Tough loss will be made better by taking out frustrations on Arizona. They must get Michael Turner more involved.3) CHICAGO BEARS: Not a bad loss at all, but Chicago doesn’t look like a team trending upwards with a 30th ranked passing offense in a passing league. 12) NEW YORK GIANTS: Two-game losing streak, QB with a tired arm and Green Bay coming up would make a great time for a bye week. Do you get a Brett Favre type of feeling? Phil Simms: Eli Manning a champion, but he’s not elite.13) MINNESOTA VIKINGS: Unacceptable to have the third-best rushing attack and only average 191 yards/game through the air. They have a tough schedule the rest of the way with Chicago twice in the next three weeks and only two home games left.14) TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS: Amazingly, the best rush defense and the worst pass defense, that’s hard to do…anyone else know this is the third-best scoring offense?15) NEW ORLEANS SAINTS: Thought this team had no chance to ever get into the top half of the poll…16) DALLAS COWBOYS: Romo would be so much better off with a rushing attack better than 29th in the league…pretender or contender will be determined with weak but vital three-game homestand Cleveland, Washington and Philly.17) CINCINNATI BENGALS: Completing only 31% of third-downs (only Washington is worse on third-down.)18) MIAMI DOLPHINS: Pretty surprising one of the worst pass defenses in the league gives up less than three TDs a game. Normally fourth-down conversion rate isn’t a big deal, but allowing 90% (9-of-10) to be converted is a little obnoxious. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   28) OAKLAND RAIDERS: Only Arizona has a worse rushing attack… only three teams give up 30 points/game. Welcome to the club, Oakland.29) CAROLINA PANTHERS: Now that the special teams coach has been fired, I’m sure everything is looking up.30) CLEVELAND BROWNS: All the stats say this is just a below average team, but Weeden is so bad statistically that the team has two wins.31) JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS: Offense is beginning to become historically bad, averaging barely two TDs per game.32) KANSAS CITY CHIEFS: They had a lead! Second worst turnover ratio in the league is Philly’s -11, nine turnovers better than KC’s -20. Top Stories 4) NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS: Fourth-worst passing defense allowing 8.1 yards/attempt. NFL leading +16 turnover ratio saves bad defense.5) BALTIMORE RAVENS: Bad offensive stats yet still fourth in points/game. They also get Pittsburgh twice in next three games.6) SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS: Only three home games left. They are averaging a crazy 170 yards rushing/game (yes, that’s #1 in the NFL).7) GREEN BAY PACKERS: Defense must increase turnovers created or decrease yards given up. They are a very banged up team so a bye week was desperately needed.8) DENVER BRONCOS: The power poll is based on the entire body of work and not the trending direction or this team would be much higher because they’re in the middle of a potential eight-game winning streak.9) PITTSBURGH STEELERS: Despite the loss of Polamalu, by far the best statistical defense. This doesn’t look good for a division showdown. Ben Roethlisberger out for Ravens game.10) SEATTLE SEAHAWKS: Worst passing team in the NFL. This is the perfect time for the bye week with Arizona being the only team coming to Seattle between now and Christmas weekend. 11) INDIANAPOLIS COLTS: As the -9 turnover ratio keeps getting better, so does Indianapolis. They still have two games left against Houston. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 19) SAN DIEGO CHARGERS: Interested to see how the seventh-ranked defense handles Peyton in Denver. Rivers has been sacked 22 times and lost 142 yards. 20) TENNESSEE TITANS: Most 125+ yard rushing games in the first five years of a career is 27 by Eric Dickerson, Chris Johnson has 25.21) PHILADELPHIA EAGLES: Back-to-back 3-6 starts…sorry Andy, but you have to win seven straight to save your job.22) NEW YORK JETS: Mark Sanchez has thrown two of his league-leading four red zone INTs on plays immediately following a Tebow wildcat play call.23) WASHINGTON REDSKINS: Despite all their struggles, they still have five division games left to make a comeback in a weak division…defense allowing almost 400 yards/game.24) DETROIT LIONS: I don’t care that you’re the #1 passing offense if you have to take 17 sacks and throw eight picks to get there.25) ST. LOUIS RAMS: I know it’s not as bad as Arizona, but 25 sacks of Bradford is way too much. They need more plays taking advantage of the walking mismatch Lance Kendricks.26) BUFFALO BILLS: Worst rush defense = worst scoring defense. Fitzpatrick is too smart to be completing only 62%.27) ARIZONA CARDINALS: Not only last in the NFL in rushing, but also 450 yards below their own opponents in rushing. Kevin Kolb is still in third place in most sacks taken (it’s been a month since he’s played). Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retireslast_img

Previous articleThe State of the Rural Economy is “Fragile”Next articleMorning Outlook Eric Pfeiffer Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Trade and Farm Bill Atop NASDA Agenda in D.C. ISDA Director Bruce Kettler on Trade and 2018 Farm BillThe National Association of State Departments of Agriculture held its Winter Policy Conference at the end of January in Washington, D.C. Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler was among the attendees. Trade and the 2018 Farm Bill were atop the agenda. Kettler says despite some reports, the overall mood in the room was optimistic regarding NAFTA. “Overall, from a NAFTA standpoint, there’s optimism. It’s guarded, it’s not gleeful necessarily. But what I think everybody understands is how important those two trading partners are to our country in terms of its agriculture output.”Just how important is NAFTA to Indiana? According to americansforfarmersandfamilies.com, out of the $1.4 Billion in total Food and Ag product exports in 2016, $573 Million, or 42%, went to NAFTA partners.Kettler says they spent time on the hill speaking with staff members of Senators Young and Donnelly as well as staff members from the Senate and House Ag Committees regarding the 2018 Farm Bill. He says there is reasonable optimism that they may get a bill marked up by Spring. One thing Kettler says we need to pay attention to is disaster relief for the cotton and dairy industries. “If they get some disaster relief put in outside of the Farm Bill that’ll help from a funding standpoint. If they don’t and something goes into the Farm Bill, that’s going to take a lot of dollars away. There (won’t) be new dollars in the Farm Bill.”last_img

first_img Reporters Without Borders urges the US immigration authorities to grant an emergency residence permit – followed as soon as possible by political asylum – to Ricardo Chávez Aldana, a radio journalist based in the northern border city of Ciudad Juárez, who was forced to flee across the border with his family to the Texan city of El Paso on 10 December.“The US immigration authorities must be aware of the level of violence in Ciudad Juárez, which has affected security on the US side of the border as well,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Chávez and his family would probably have been murdered if they had not rushed to cross the border. Reporting is a high-risk job when you cover organised crime and Chávez is not the first journalists to opt for exile, and will not the last one. For the sake of his safety, he must be allowed to enter the United States when necessary.”Chávez, who works for Radio Cañon, fled with his mother, wife and son across the border to El Paso after getting a series of phone calls threatening his family, several Mexican newspapers said. On 9 December, the day before he fled, he reported on the air that two of his nephews, Diego and Argenis Chávez Luis, aged 15 and 17 respectively, were among four youths who had just been killed in a shooting in Ciudad Juárez. In his report, he condemned the failure of the authorities to arrest those responsible and the freedom with which gunmen operate in the city.Initially determined to defy the threats, Chávez changed his mind and decided to flee although he does not have a passport. “Before crossing the border with my family, I knew we would be arrested by the immigration authorities but it is better to be locked up than dead,” he told Radio Cañon colleagues by telephone from the US side of the border, according to a report in the newspaper La Jornada.Chávez’s story recalls that of Emilio Gutiérrez Soto, the correspondent of the regional newspaper El Diario, who fled across the border on 15 June 2008 after being threatened by the Mexican army and was held until 29 January 2009 in a detention centre in El Paso.
