Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Offensive guard – In two weeks I will be releasing my Arizona Cardinals big board, a list of the top 50 players that FIT into what the Cardinals will do, but here is a little spoiler — Chance Warmack will be in the top five of my board.I am not getting my hopes up for the Cardinals breaking from tradition and passing on talent with more value for perhaps a higher rated, by me at least, prospect.That being said, the Cardinals have the opportunity to solidify the position within the first two rounds with names like Warmack at seven, Larry Warford and Justin Pugh in round two or Kyle Long and Travis Frederick in round three.If the Cardinals identify the guard position as a need, they’ll have ample opportunity to address the position.Offensive tackle – I have talked about the likelihood that when the Cardinals step up to the podium that tackles Luke Joeckel and Eric Fisher would be gone. But that doesn’t mean the cupboard is bare at that point. Oklahoma’s Lane Johnson is an intriguing, albeit underdeveloped left tackle prospect.If for some reason Joeckel or Fisher fall to the Cardinals, I hope that they do the right thing. I wouldn’t be opposed to Warmack over either tackle prospect, but I am realistic in my belief that this is unlikely. Top Stories I initially identified the Cardinals main needs as (in order of largest needs): Quarterback – Drew Stanton signed to compete for the starting job with at least Brian Hoyer, who received a one-year tender offer at the second round level.Pass Rusher – Lorenzo Alexander was brought in from Washington as a special teams ace. The six-year veteran is looking to break out and get a shot playing outside linebacker.Guard – No one added.Offensive tackle – No one added.Inside linebacker – Jasper Brinkley, the run stopping dynamo from Minnesota, was added.Other additions included running back Rashard Mendenhall (Pittsburgh), cornerbacks Jerraud Powers (Indianapolis) and Antoine Cason (San Diego), and safety Yeremiah Bell (NY Jets).If you look at the signings, it is my opinion that the team’s needs haven’t changed at all. My thoughts on Stanton can be seen at tshq.co, and Alexander has never proven to be an effective every-down player.That moves the needs at guard and tackle up the list following a week of free agency.While Arians has talked about the offensive line not being as bad as everyone says, I think the combination of need and top talent available will lend to the Cardinals needs come draft day lining up like this: Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires As NFL teams address needs in the free agent market, it begins to clarify the draft and make needs more apparent for each franchise.In the beginning of February, I broke down the biggest needs for the Arizona Cardinals. Now that week one of free agency has basically come to an end, I wanted to go back to the beginning and see if the Cardinals have addressed any of their major needs and if their moves have freed up the team to truly attack the draft in a “best player available” way. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The other possibility — something that a lot of fans may not like — is the Cardinals moving down if Fisher or Joeckel fall to seven.Teams may feel the value there would be like stealing, and they might be willing to part with picks — something the Cardinals could use to their advantage to plug the multiple holes on the roster.If the Cardinals are unable to draft a left tackle at seven, there is a possibility that they could take Terron Armstead of Arkansas Pine-Bluff in round two. A player I identified early as a late-day two or early-day three guard prospect, Armstead has turned heads. I also was sent some film on him by a helpful agent, which has changed my mind.Armstead would be a reach at the top of round two, but the reality is he may not make it to round three. So if the Cardinals really want a left tackle, they may have to reach in this draft for Lane Johnson at seven or Terron Armstead in the second round.Safety – I want to again clarify that this is how I believe the Cardinals will list their needs. If it were up to me, I would still have quarterback and pass rusher ahead of safety, despite the fact I don’t see a starting free safety on the roster. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 0 Comments Share There is an intriguing thought among the draft community that Texas’ Kenny Vaccaro could sneak into the top ten. I am curious to see as draft day comes closer if the Cardinals are one of the teams interested in his services.The Cardinals could also benefit from a player like LSU’s Eric Reid in round two, South Caroina’s D.J. Swearinger in round two or three, and maybe a guy like Arizona State’s Keelan Johnson on day three if they don’t make a move on the first day of the draft or in the later stages of free agency.While the needs may have changed, there is still a chance that the Cardinals could go with a pass rusher early, or maybe even a quarterback (blashphemy, I know). But I would think that the Cardinals would look at their current roster and identify these as the three biggest needs after week one of free agency.
UPF Lebanon, by Hermine Schellen: Since past 2 Years Lebanon had a great influx of Refugee families coming from Syria. This year the estimated number of Refugees is close to 1.2 Mill. in Lebanon, according to UNHCR.Although the UN, as well as many other organizations like Caritas are trying their best to help those families, who are really totally depending on help for shelter, food, clothing etc.Due to this very difficult situation the refugees are in, and their great need, UPF Lebanon initiated a special, Aid Program in early June 2014, to join in the efforts of UN and other NGO’s, to help the Refugee Families.First we have chosen a specific camp that has around 53 Families living in very humble tents. They are not waterproof, that means when there is heavy rain, and the tents get flooded. Further they have no electricity. Also they are in great need of warm cloth, blankets, Medic care.We are visiting the camp on a regular base, together with Ambassadors of Peace, young Volunteers, as well as Mr. and Mrs. Park.At first our focus was to register all Families and see firsthand what situation each family is in.In August we started to give out donations to families we have registered. And beginning from this month we will be giving donations to all the families in the Camp. We hope we can do this on a monthly base. At this point, we are only able to do this thanks to the generous funds we are receiving from UPF International as well as IRFF Germany. We inform the refugees, from where the aid is actually coming. Because we think it’s important to know this, as UPF and IRFF are founded by True Parent’s.Also in this month for the first time UPF Lebanon could recruit a small medic team, a young doctor (pediatrician and inner medicine) and pharmacist lady that are willing to provide medical aid on a volunteer base, for the refugees.But as mentioned before, there are so many needs and we are trying to address them one by one.Together with Mr. Park we are currently also trying to raise funds for the urgently needed electricity for the camp. According to the Manager of the camp, it will cost $3000 to provide electricity for all tents. We could so far raise funds close to $900. Inshallah we can succeed in our endeavors and truly help those families in their very pitiful situation.
Midnight Mania! Trump Family In The ‘Chaos’ Corner? There’s UFC Heavyweights, And Then There’s Shaq “I would beat the f*cking breaks off Brock Lesnar,” Mitrione said. “There is no question about this whatsoever. He would never fight me…never. He would fight Jon Jones because he would think he can take Jon Jones down. He would never fight me. I’ve been asking to fight Brock Lesnar since the day I went on The Ultimate Fighter. “If you think that dude is an athlete go suck a d*ck. That dude is not an athlete. He’s a giant body.”Well, there you have it. According to Mitrione, Lesnar is nothing more than a bag of meat. That may be more true at this point in time, especially considering Lesnar has competed just once inside of the cage since 2011, but the WWE superstar does hold wins over notable MMA legends like Randy Couture and Frank Mir. Not to mention Lesnar submitted the once unbeatable Shane Carwin.While fight fans would love to see Mitrione put his money where his mouth is and go against “The Beast Incarnate,” Lesnar will presumably fight under the UFC banner if he ever decides to leave WWE, again.

Standard Ranked Rashguard Matt Mitrione has enjoyed his time apart from UFC. After leaving the promotion behind in 2016, “Meathead” has experienced a career change few fighters dream of. Not only has the 39-year-old heavyweight been placed atop the Bellator MMA throne as one of promotion’s biggest draws, but Mitrione has been fortunate enough to finish all three of his Bellator bouts by way of knockout. This includes his recent first-round stoppage of MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko back at Bellator NYC this past June.Now, Mitrione is taking aim at another huge MMA star. In a recent interview with Barstool Sports Heartland’s Pat Mcafee (shown below), “Meathead” verbally obliterated former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, who has been rumored in a potential superfight with UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones.
