Breaking down the NFC East

Published

on

The Post’s Ryan Dunleavy breaks down the NFC East:

Cowboys

Coach: Mike McCarthy (second year)

Training camp site: Oxnard, Calif.

Key additions: S Keanu Neal is the only notable addition to a secondary that was historically bad last season. Rookie LB Micah Parsons, DL Brent Urban and edge rusher Tarell Basham are supposed to upgrade the front-seven.

Key losses: CB Chidobe Awuzie signed with the Bengals and OLB Aldon Smith joined the Seahawks after resurrecting his career. QB Andy Dalton is competing to be the Bears’ starter after he stepped in effectively for the injured Dak Prescott last year.

Training camp storylines to watch: McCarthy was supposed to be the savior last year. Now it’s supposed to be defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, who helped orchestrate the Seahawks’ “Legion of Boom” secondary. The Cowboys are loaded at linebacker. Prescott finally signed his $160 million contract, so now he has to live up to huge expectations — while coming off of a compound ankle fracture no less. How long until the Cowboys’ once-great veteran offensive line begins to break down again? Watch all of it unfold on HBO’s “Hard Knocks.”

Washington

Coach: Ron Rivera (second year)

Training camp site: Richmond, Va.

Key additions: After Washington won the NFC East by using four different QBs last season, Ryan Fitzpatrick arrives as the starter — along with three new WRs: Curtis Samuel, Adam Humphries and rookie Dyami Brown. CB William Jackson and OL Ereck Flowers signed big contracts.

Key losses: QB Alex Smith retired after saving last season and CB Ronald Darby signed with the Broncos. Two Washington mainstays, DE Ryan Kerrigan (Eagles) and RT Morgan Moses (Jets), are gone.

Training camp storylines to watch: You won’t see many reigning division champs make this many significant personnel changes. The gunslinging Fitzpatrick finally has a job in which he is not just a caretaker for a rookie, and Washington’s offense no longer lacks complementary playmakers to WR Terry McLaurin. If Chase Young improved in the offseason, the preseason might reveal the NFL’s new best edge rusher. Washington was fined $10 million by the NFL for its toxic front-office culture, so maybe Rivera can put those questions to bed and continue a new era.

Eagles

Coach: Nick Sirianni (first year)

Training camp site: Philadelphia

Key additions: Failures drafting WRs over the years didn’t stop the Eagles from trading up to select Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith with pick No. 10. DE Ryan Kerrigan and S Anthony Harris signed one-year deals and should be motivated, if they have anything left in the tank.

Key losses: Trading disgruntled QB Carson Wentz rather than trying to repair the relationship was a bold move. Two longtime Eagles, P Cam Johnson and WR DeSean Jackson, joined WR Alshon Jeffrey and CB Jalen Mills in splitting town. It seems the Eagles always are short at cornerback.

Training camp storylines to watch: Projections for the Eagles range from winning 11 games to being one of the worst teams in the NFL. QB Jalen Hurts’ development is the root of the uncertainty. Even the Eagles weren’t expecting their 2020 second-rounder to be the starter this soon. Is this a team that had one hiccup and is ready to reemerge as a perennial playoff contender? Or are the Eagles in denial over a stale roster and about to bottom out after scapegoating fired Super Bowl-winning coach Doug Pederson? So much rides on Hurts.

Giants

Coach: Joe Judge (second year)

Training camp site: East Rutherford, N.J.

Key additions: The Giants spent at the top of the free-agent market for WR Kenny Golladay and near the top for CB Adoree’ Jackson. TE Kyle Rudolph and rookie WR Kadarius Toney should help in the red zone.

Key losses: RG Kevin Zeitler was a salary-cap casualty. Choosing to re-sign DL Leonard Williams at top dollar meant losing run-stuffing DT Dalvin Tomlinson, who joined the Vikings.

Training camp storylines to watch: All eyes are on offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and QB Daniel Jones. After ranking second-to-last in points per game (17.5) last season, will Garrett’s playbook include more creative routes for the speedster Toney and downfield throws? It’s a make-or-break Year 3 for Jones’ development, but he only can go as far as the protection allows. Every year, the Giants say the offensive line is improved. It rarely is. This time, it’s five starters age 24 or younger trying to jell. The Giants are unproven at pass-rusher, too.

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

One player unsuccessfully tried to score the plate YESDADDY, to no avail.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
