Kyle Shanahan Play Call Error Keys Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl 51 Loss. #SB51

Kyle Shanahan Play Call Error Keys Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl 51 Loss

Kyle Shanahan, Atlanta Falcons Offensive Coordinator and new San Francisco 49ers Head Coach, is to blame for the bad call that keyed the New England Patriots comeback win.

It was Falcons 28, Patriots 12 in the 3rd Quarter. Atlanta faced a 3rd down and just over one yard to go on the Falcons 35 yard line. The normal call when the offense has the ball on its own side of the field is a running play. You don’t want to risk an interception and in most instances your runners can pick up the one yard.

That was especially true for The Falcons. Devonte Freeman, the leading rusher, was averaging almost one first down every time he ran the ball to that point in the game. Plus. New England had not been able to consistently stop the off tackle run.

But with all that, the Falcons went to a five step drop pass. The Pats blitzed, Freeman (probably wondering why they did not let him run it) missed the blitzer. Ryan was slammed just before his arm moved forward, the ball came out, and New England recovered it.

The Pats got the momentum and went on to score and finish the greatest comeback in Super Bowl History.

If Kyle ran it, with Freeman, they would have had the first down. Indeed, if Shanahan had elected to make Freeman the MVP, the Falcons would have won. But he did not, and so they lost. via IFTTT

Oakland Raiders Las Vegas NFL Deal Wreckage Leaves Nevada Fighting Over Stadium Subsidy #SBLI

Oakland Raiders Las Vegas Deal Wreckage Leaves Nevada Fighting Over NFL Stadium Subsidy #SBXLI

The Sheldon Adelson-led effort to relocate the Oakland Raiders from Oaktown to Las Vegas is dead. Adelson, upset with what he saw as an attempt to double-cross him on the part of the Silver and Black’s owner and management, said in a statement that he would not negotiate with the NFL team, anymore. Now, after Adelson’s bomb was dropped, some Nevada politicians are already fighting over the reuse $750 million stadium subsidy.

While some looked as Adelson’s decision as leaving an opportunity for The Raiders, those who know Nevada politics and have watched this story unfold over the last year, know that Sheldon Adelson did the following:

1) Paid into the campaigns of a giant number of Nevada elected officials those running to challenge them
2) Financed the development of many of the studies associated with the Raiders stadium project.
3) Hired an army of lobbyists to make deals with member of the Nevada Legislature, all to the objective of gaining passage of Senate Bill 1, which contains a hotel-tax increase that was to be used for the Raiders stadium construction.
4) Used his news organization, the Las Vegas Review-Journal, to write a large number of reports favorable to the NFL Raiders stadium project.

Now, in the wake of Adelson’s departure, and his scorched-earth way of doing it, and the news Goldman Sachs let leak that it would not help the Raiders finance the stadium project (contrary to news that the investment banking firm was going to do that), comes the Las Vegas Review-Journal releasing an article with this title: “Goldman Sachs financing in jeopardy after Adelson exit from Raiders stadium plan”.

Think about it. That’s Sheldon Adelson’s newspaper and news website telling everyone that, as one of Goldman Sachs largest clients, his pulling the plug on the Raiders Stadium Deal means the giant investment banker waves good-bye, too. And while the article was careful to say that Adelson didn’t tell Goldman Sachs to back out, the article was a giant hint at what he wanted the firm to do, just by using the language “Adelson has a long-time relationship with Goldman Sachs”. Get it?

And the Las Vegas Sun was even more willing to un-bundle the Raiders stadium subsidy, with this headline: “If NFL passes on Las Vegas, earmarked money could help build stadium for UNLV”.

Several members of the Las Vegas and Nevada political community have told me that once the new Nevada Legislature meets for the new year on February 6th, there will be efforts to use that hotel tax money for basic needs, from education and health care, to minority contracting (as is new Nevada Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford’s desire), and UNLV. “There are many who are concerned that UNLV had to come up with $200 million, as the legislation was written,” one Nevada elected official told me on the condition that their name not be used. “There may be a push to change that come next session,” the official said.

And while the Raiders claim they can get the financing for a new stadium in Las Vegas, given the number of people in Nevada who do business with Sheldon Adelson, including the labor unions who gave their time to call legislators and made special deals with Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands organization, it is pure folly to believe they’re all going to stand with Raiders Owner Mark Davis in the wake of Adelson’s departure.

Moreover, when the Nevada Legislature meets in February, Democrats will be in power over Republicans. In November, Democrats regained their majority control in the Legislature. In the Nevada Senate, Dems have a 27 to 15 advantage. In the Nevada Assembly, Dems have a thin 11 to 10 edge, but it’s enough to put them in charge: Rep Jason Frierson becomes Nevada’s first African-American Speaker Of The House.

That sets up a Democratic v Republican battle for the Raiders Stadium subsidy. Majority Leader Ford wants to use the money for infrastructure funding proposal if the Raiders themselves punt from their stadium effort. Senator Minority Leader Michael Roberson, however, did not want to call it a day for the Raiders, saying “I would advise that we continue to see this process of obtaining an NFL team through to a successful conclusion rather than proposing seemingly random ideas to start spending room tax money that we currently don’t have and without the consensus of support from our tourism industry.”

But now that the Republicans, who had the majority in the Nevada Legislature when Adelson engineered his votes, are in the minority, their power to see this through has been severely curtailed.

Meanwhile, there is a stadium financing plan in Oakland, home of The Raiders.

With Sheldon Adelson As Goldman Sachs Client, Oakland Raiders Deal Is Toast

With Sheldon Adelson As Goldman Sachs Client, Oakland Raiders Deal Is Toast

According to a source very close to the bond financing, because Las Vegas Sands is a Goldman Sachs client, and Sheldon Adelson is its CEO, and the Sands Organization is worth north of $50 billion, they don’t want to upset a steady client over the Raiders matter.

As for The Raiders and politics, the Oakland Raiders have burned the wrong bridges in Sin City and just by crossing Adelson. The Sands Founder and CEO hired 12 lobbyists to make deals with members of The Nevada Legislature. All of that went south because no one wants to piss off Sheldon Adelson.

Also the deal was designed for an NFL, not necessarily the Raiders, my source told me. That is also true for the developer and the investor. The problem is all of this was assembled by Adelson – even if his name is not on the legislation, his photo might as well be next to it.

Barring a miracle, the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas dream is dead.

Benjamin Allbright Owes Zennie Abraham $500 On Oakland Raiders Las Vegas Bet

Benjamin Allbright Owes Zennie Abraham $500 On Oakland Raiders Las Vegas Bet

NFL reporter Benjamin Allbright was feeling his oats and taking bets that the Oakland Raiders were on the way to Las Vegas. So I bet him $500 that he was wrong. Now the Las Vegas deal has collapsed and Davis has left a lot of bad blood in Sin City. Staying in Oakland is his best choice and getting a new stadium. Meanwhile Ben can pay $500 to my PayPal account at zennie@sportsbusinesssims.com.
