Severe winter weather will push back jury selection in the double-homicide trial of former Patriots star Aaron Hernandez, which was set to begin Monday.
With the Boston metro area bracing for as much as 12 inches of snowfall by Monday afternoon, jury selection in the trial will likely be delayed until Thursday, a spokesman for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office announced.
Lynch told NFL Network’s Michael Silver that his daughter cried when she heard the news.
“I think the toughest one — I haven’t told this yet to the media — all my kids took it really well,” Lynch said. “They were shocked but they took it really well. My 9-year-old started bawling, and she’s not that girl. She’s the one that was always happy. And she was crying, and I said, ‘What’s wrong, Leah? Are you afraid? Is there some nervous anxiety about moving?’ And she said, ‘No daddy,’ and she was sobbing.
“And I said, ‘What’s wrong?’ And she said, ‘The 49ers are horrible.’ So, I said, ‘Well, I Cheap Jerseys Soccer think that’s why they hired your daddy.'”
Young Leah knows her football, because the 2-14 49ers were the NFL’s version of a dumpster fire this season, with holes on both sides of the ball. Lynch and new head coach Kyle Shanahan face an epic task in the Bay Area.
NFL fans who wanted to marvel at the $2.6 billion stadium in Inglewood, Calif., in 2019 will have to wait a little big longer. The stadium, which will serve as the Rams’ and Chargers’ new LA home, will have its opening delayed to the start of the 2020 season after heavy rainfall in California.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell confirmed the news during a Thursday teleconference (via the Los Angeles Times).
“The continuing rains really knocked us for a loop,” said Bob Aylesworth, principal in charge of the Turner/AECOM Hunt joint venture that is building the stadium (via the LA Times). “It was a very unforgiving two months for the project. And speaking from a building perspective, it really couldn’t have come at a worse time.”
This season was going to be pivotal for coach John Fox and his staff in Chicago regardless of who formed the roster. But general manager Ryan Pace, who like Fox and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio is entering his third year with the Bears, gambled his own fate and earned the head-scratcher of the offseason award when he traded a haul of picks to draft Mitchell Trubisky at No. 2 overall.
Naturally, given the prestige of the position and an already-chaotic situation, quarterback is where we begin to break down the new-look Bears.
When Sporting News broke down the Bears’ schedule in April, wins were hard to find. That was before a draft that, on the surface and depending on the immediate development of Trubisky, did little to elicit short-term optimism.
Given a roster deep at a few positions but underwhelming as a whole, combined Cheap Jerseys Premier League with a reported disconnect between the coaching staff and management, the Cheap Jerseys Soccer Bears have much to overcome in 2017. If the season is not a relative success, it will force a return to square one at Halas Hall.
