“It felt like the Steelers game, it felt like Atlanta last year,” he added. “We were flat. Usually, we have Victory Monday but we’ll be in the lab tomorrow.” – / 21 After Arizona head coach Bruce Arians finished his postgame speech following a 19-16 win at San Francisco on Sunday, Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson silenced his cheering teammates.“Hold on! Defense, we’ll be in at 11,” he said before quarterback Carson Palmer broke the huddle. “11 a.m.”#AZCardinals @RealPeterson21 told media that he exercised his powers as team captain and cancelled “Victory Monday” for @AZCardinals defense— Paul Calvisi (@PaulCalvisi) November 30, 2015Arizona’s defense allowed Niners quarterback Blaine Gabbert to connect on 25-of-36 passes for 318 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Defensive coordinator James Bettcher’s crew also allowed San Francisco to rush 17 times for a 3.9-yard average.It wasn’t until safety Tony Jefferson blitzed Gabbert and sacked him in the backfield, setting the defense up to stop a 4th-and-20 that the 49ers were short of converting. Anquan Boldin’s reception ended 18 yards downfield and two yards short of a first down that would have allowed them an opportunity to take the lead late in the fourth quarter.“We lost focus quite a few times during that game,” Jefferson told Arizona Sports 98.7’s Paul Calvisi. “But we knew we couldn’t let that one slip away. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact There won’t be much celebrating for the Arizona Cardinals.Not after they fell short on multiple 3rd-and-1 situations, not after two turnovers only led to two field goals and not after the run game chugged for 2.4 yards per carry, most of which happened before the top two backs on the depth chart left with injuries.That means there will be no “Victory Monday” when the Cards arrive back at their Tempe training facility. There’s a sense of urgency as the team hopes to get back to work quickly following a less-than-impressive game against the 49ers.

Categories: LaFave News,News State Rep. Beau LaFave, of Iron Mountain, this week reintroduced a proposal to expand the rights of gun owners to transport their firearm while on private property.“This important reform restores the lawful right of property owners to carry a gun on their own land in the manner they believe safe, and I am committed to protecting the Second Amendment rights of gun owners,” LaFave said. “The people of Michigan are entitled to their right to bear arms nowhere more especially than when they are on their own private property.”Current law levies a fine of up to $500 or 90 days in jail for transporting or possessing a loaded firearm while riding a vehicle. LaFave’s plan, House Bill 4331, would permit the transport and possession of a loaded firearm in or upon a vehicle, so long as the activity takes place on private property. An identical plan was approved by a majority of members in the House of Representatives last year, but was not taken up by the Senate.In 2018, the Legislature enacted a similar reform that would allow bows, crossbows, or slingshots.“This proposal is a common-sense solution that does not impact public safety and protects gun owners from punishment for a personal choice made on private property,” LaFave said. “I’m proud to reintroduce legislation that is thoughtfully crafted to affirm personal property rights and protect otherwise law-abiding citizens from needless criminal prosecution.”LaFave noted that Michigan farmers are among those adversely affected by current law.“Sometimes a farmer is out managing their field and would like a varmint rifle with them to get rid of nuisance animals damaging their cropland,” LaFave said.LaFave also introduced a separate plan that would allow the use of pneumatic airbows during certain hunting seasons for individuals with either a permanent or temporary disability. An airbow is similar to a crossbow, but uses compressed air to shoot the arrow. This type can be operated by an individual with only one arm, unlike bows and crossbows.Licensed hunters with a disability that are unable to shoot a bow and crossbow would be allowed to get a permit to hunt with an airbow during bow season. All hunters who do not qualify for an airbow permit would be able to use a pneumatic airbow during firearm season.“Citizens with both arms can take advantage of deer hunting for three full months, while disabled individuals are relegated to a mere 19 days,” LaFave said. “Current law has the Department of Natural Resources straight up discriminating against people with upper body or limb disabilities who want to hunt. Some people were tragically injured serving in our armed forces overseas in combat and want to hunt during bow season. But they can’t because current law is discriminating against them. No private business are allowed to discriminate against these individuals – or would even think of it—while the state is getting away with it. Conservation is an important part of our Michigan way of life and no individual should be cast out of the woods because of the DNR.”The bill pertaining airbows was referred to the House Committee on Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation. The bill regarding firearms was referred to the new House Committee on Military, Veteran Affairs and Homeland security, where LaFave is chairman. 14Mar Rep. LaFave reintroduces plan to protect gun owners’ personal liberty, expand access for disabled hunters

Gaming has gained in relevance, and file sharing has experienced a bit of a resurgence.”Sandvine is a provider of network intelligence solutions and its Global Internet Phenomena Report looks at how applications are consuming the world’s internet bandwidth.To access the full report click here.
