CINCINNATI — What the Broncos are doing?Shoot, anyone can do that."We're going 1-0 every day," rookie pass-rusher Bradley Chubb said after the Broncos cruised past the stinky Bengals 24-10 here Sunday.So let’s all go 1-0 together. Make the bed, bring coffee to your better half, high-5 the Amazon guy tired from lugging around holiday packages. Because that’s what the Broncos are doing, and it’s working. Just to clarify, what exactly is all this “1-0” talk that has the Broncos thinking playoffs without actually saying the P word?“Don’t be thinking about, ‘If they do this, or if we do this.’ Just do what we’ve got to do — win the game — and move on to next week,” Chubb explained inside a stoic visitors locker room at Paul Brown Stadium.That part’s not hard. That part we can all do.Then there’s Phillip Lindsay. Nope, can’t do that.

There’s one thing Phillip Lindsay isn’t carrying to daylight right now: A shred of doubt. “I mean, you have confidence every time you win,” the Denver Broncos’ rookie tailback and former University of Colorado star said after rushing for a season-best 110 yards Sunday in a 24-17 victory over Pittsburgh. “You build a bond, you build what you need to get to the next step. We (need) to peak here, so that when we get to the playoffs, we can peak again.” Hang on. Playoffs? “We’re a playoff team,” Lindsay replied. “If you sit here and doubt yourself, there’s no reason for you to play.” No. 30 is toppling more skeptics — and front-line NFL defenses — by the week. The AFC Central-leading Steelers (7-3-1) came into Broncos Stadium at Mile High having allowed just 99.6 rushing yards per game, the eighth-best clip in the league. Lindsay topped the century mark on just 14 carries, averaging 7.9 yards a tote, … [Read more...] about Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay: “We’re a playoff team”

The symmetry was perfect. Word of Joe Mauer’s impending retirement broke on Nov. 9, a few hours before Lindsay Whalen coached her first women’s basketball game at the University of Minnesota, events that forever linked two of Minnesota’s most celebrated homegrown athletes. Mauer ended his career the same day Whalen began the next chapter in hers, when she stepped onto the raised floor at Williams Arena to coach the team she led to the 2004 Final Four. It’s hard to imagine any Minnesota athlete more popular now than Whalen. The Gophers announced a sellout of 14,625 for Whalen’s victorious coaching debut against New Hampshire, a record for U women’s basketball. Though the actual crowd appeared about 1,000 less — lots of empty rows in the student section with nationally-ranked Gopher volleyball playing next door — it says plenty about Whalen’s status as “Minnesota’s first daughter,” as Lynx Coach Cheryl Reeve likes … [Read more...] about Joe Mauer, Lindsay Whalen and the whims of being a hometown hero
Lindsay Millar might have been exceptionally busy over the past five months fulfilling her duties as mayor of Mid and East Antrim, but she still managed to find time to complete a masters degree, which she hopes will be a gateway to a new career. The Carrickfergus councillor is seen by many as one of the rising stars within the Ulster Unionist Party, but she insists she has no desire to pursue a full-time career in politics.The 27-year-old, who currently works for UUP MEP Jim Nicholson, is hoping her recent academic success will help her secure a job in the public relations industry.Having worked for Mr Nicholson for the past five years, she decided to retrain for a different career after the UK voted to leave the EU – meaning she will be out of work after Brexit in 2019. Her experience of organising events and campaigns for the UUP led her towards the field of public relations – something for which she needed new qualifications.Lindsay already had a politics degree from … [Read more...] about Busy Lindsay finishes masters degree while fulfilling mayoral role
