Congress could try to step in again

Congress could try to step in again
Eric Bieniemy had better learn to ration his booming voice.

It was one thing when the running back-turned-assistant coach could spend an entire 3-hour practice barking at the running backs Baker Mayfield Browns Jersey , a handful of players under his direct supervision. It’s quite another now that he’s in charge of dozens of players on the Kansas City Chiefs‘ offense.

But that in-your-face intensity is also a big reason why Bieniemy has quickly risen through the coaching ranks, from running backs coach at his alma mater, Colorado, to offensive coordinator in the NFL.

So don’t expect him to turn the volume down anytime soon.

”The biggest thing Coach Bieniemy will bring to our offense is his intensity,” said Chiefs running back Spencer Ware, who has worked closely under him the past couple seasons. ”If you look at his resume and the players he’s coached and the way they play football, each and every play they get out there on the field – having an entire offense with that same mentality is pretty exciting.”

Pretty intimidating, too.

Bieniemy carries a presence on the practice field that looms much larger than his stout frame. When he speaks, people listen – mostly because the volume is so high.

Quite frankly, it’s hard to ignore.

”I just joked with him out here, he’s having to walk around now. He isn’t coaching just one position,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. ”He has to grind on everybody. That takes a little bit of getting used to. He did a nice job of figure all that during minicamps and that.”

Reid has always thought highly of Bieniemy Tremaine Youth Edmunds Youth Jersey , who joined his initial staff as the running backs coach in Kansas City. But the fact that he elevated Bieniemy to offensive coordinator after watching Matt Nagy take over the head job in Chicago speaks volumes about Reid’s belief in his assistant’s ability.

Never before has he had an offensive coordinator who played anything but quarterback.

There was Rod Dowhower in the early years in Philadelphia, and Brad Childress and Marty Mornhinweg had backgrounds with the most mentally demanding position on the field. Doug Pederson became Reid’s first offensive coordinator in Kansas City before taking the Eagles’ top job and parlaying some of what he learned during his time with the Chiefs into a Super Bowl title this past season.

It makes sense, too. The quarterback is the only player on offense who must know everybody’s job on every play. That’s why so many of them successfully transition to coaching.

Bieniemy has shown a similar aptitude, though. The Chiefs have always used their running backs in the passing game, so he’s had a hand in that part of the scheme, and his success in helping Kareem Hunt go from unheralded and overlooked draft pick to NFL rushing champion was hard to ignore.

”He brings a certain detail to the offense that I think that we really need,” first-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes II said, ”and it’s something that he stays detailed and he stays on you and he makes sure you’re doing the right things, and I feel like it’ll help me a ton as this year goes along.”

Over time, Pederson and Nagy were given carte blanche with the offense, and there’s a good chance Bieniemy will earn that latitude as well. But for now, he’ll work hand-in-hand with Reid and quarterbacks coach Mike Kafka in orchestrating what could be one of the league’s top offenses.

The Chiefs have surrounded Mahomes with plenty of weapons: Hunt in the backfield Cheap Christian Kirk Jersey , Travis Kelce at tight end, and wide receiver Sammy Watkins joining speedster Tyreek Hill as downfield threats.

In other words, they’ve also given Bieniemy the tools necessary to succeed.

”This is actually a unique position because I get to touch every position on the offensive side of the ball,” he said. ”It’s a unique situation to be in.”

NOTES: The Chiefs released WR Elijah Marks and signed DT Mike Purcell. … Hunt did individual work but was held out of team drills Friday to rest his hamstring, which bothered him during the summer. … LB Reggie Ragland (knee), CB Ashton Lampkin (knee) and FS Armani Watts (ankle) did not practice.



The Supreme Court cleared the way Monday for states coast to coast to legalize betting on sports, breaking a longtime ban and creating a potential financial boon for states and the gambling industry. The first bets could be placed within weeks.

Despite opposition from the major sports leagues and the Trump administration, the high court struck down a federal law that had barred betting on football, basketball, baseball and other sports in most states. States that want to take advantage of the ruling now will generally have to pass legislation to allow sports books to open. Some, including New Jersey, which brought the case to the Supreme Court Hayden Hurst Youth Jersey , have a head start.

Sports leagues had expressed concerns about any expansion of sports gambling. Their huge businesses could be badly harmed if people thought the outcome of games could be altered by someone who had wagered money on a certain result.

However, the ruling also could be seen as merely bringing an activity out of the shadows that many people already see as a mainstream hobby. Americans wager about $150 billion on sports each year illegally, according to the American Gaming Association. The law the justices struck down forbade state-authorized sports gambling with some exceptions and made Nevada the only state where a person could wager on the results of a single game.

Stock prices for casino operators and equipment makers surged after the ruling was announced.

Gambling on sports could quickly become widely available, with one research firm estimating that 32 states would likely offer sports betting within five years.

The ruling ”opens up the floodgates” for sports gambling in any state that wants to have it, said Daniel Wallach, a sports law expert in Florida.

The decision had been eagerly anticipated by gamblers and also states that hope their cut of legalized sports betting can help solve budget problems. States that have already laid the legal groundwork include New Jersey, where one racetrack said it would begin taking bets within two weeks. Mississippi and West Virginia have also been preparing for sports betting, and gamblers there could be placing bets as early as this summer and certainly before the NFL season starts in September.

Delaware, too, could quickly expand beyond certain bets currently offered at its casinos. Pennsylvania and New York have also made moves to begin sports gambling. However, other states that want to allow sports betting could still see several Super Bowls come and go before people there can place a legal bet close to home.

The Trump administration had urged the high court to uphold the law, surprising perhaps because the president is the former owner of a New Jersey casino Brian O'Neill Vikings Jersey , the Trump Taj Mahal, now being remade into a Hard Rock casino resort. All four major U.S. professional sports leagues and the NCAA also had urged the court to uphold the federal law, saying a gambling expansion would hurt the integrity of their games. They also said that with legal sports betting in the United States, they’d have to spend a lot more money monitoring betting patterns and investigating suspicious activity.

Sports gambling proponents argued that the leagues already do that work and that legal sports betting will make enforcement easier than it is now, when most bets in the U.S. are made illegally. They say state regulators are capable of monitoring suspicious bets, as is done in Nevada.

On Monday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver and Major League Baseball issued statements saying the ”integrity” of their games would remain a priority. Representatives of the National Hockey League, National Football League and NCAA said they were reviewing the court’s decision.

Some saw other concerns, including for some gamblers. The ruling ”will likely increase gambling participation and gambling problems unless steps are taken to minimize harm,” said Marlene Warner, the president of the National Council on Problem Gambling’s board of directors. The council said any government body or sports league that receives a direct percentage or portion of sports betting revenue should dedicate some of it to treat gambling problems.

The law the justices struck down was passed by Congress in 1992 and called the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the court, ”The legalization of sports gambling requires an important policy choice Sam Darnold Youth Jersey , but the choice is not ours to make.” The court’s ”job is to interpret the law Congress has enacted and decide whether it is consistent with the Constitution,” he wrote. ”PASPA is not.”

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. Ginsburg wrote for the three that when a portion of a law violates the Constitution, the court ”ordinarily engages in a salvage rather than a demolition operation,” preserving what it can. She said that instead of using a ”scalpel to trim the statute” her colleagues used ”an axe.” Breyer agreed with the majority that part of the law must be struck down but said that should not have doomed the rest of the law.

Congress could try to step in again. Sen. Orrin Hatch said he would soon introduce legislation to set national standards for sports betting, but It is unclear whether the rest of Congress will want to join him.

The ruling was a particular victory for New Jersey, which has fought for years to legalize gambling on sports at casinos and racetracks. Former Republican Gov. Chris Christie tweeted that it was a ”great day for the rights of states and their people to make their own decisions.” The state’s current governor, Democrat Phil Murphy, said he was ”thrilled” to see the hig.
