With Fisher gone, Preds make Josi captain

Against the Raiders, the Jets had no sacks, no quarterback hits and only three QB pressures, per ESPN Stats & Info. They blitzed on only eight of Derek Carr's 28 dropbacks. Why didn't they blitz more often? Why couldn't they generate any pressure? The reason is because Carr got rid of the ball in 1.94 seconds on average, the quickest time in the league in Week 2.

Michael Beasley says he's looking forward to playing with Carmelo Anthony and believes the Knicks have enough talent to make the playoffs as a No. 5 or No. 6 seed in the East. "If Tim Hardaway Jr., Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and myself (are on the roster) – those are four guys that can score 25 points per game....I think we've got a position to be not only a playoff team but a five, six seed team if we do it right." New York has missed the playoffs for three consecutive seasons. Beasley may not get his wish to play with Anthony for long. Both Anthony and the Knicks would like to find a suitable trade partner for the veteran forward.

Jarrett Jack says he's talked to Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek about a number of topics during informal workouts at the Knicks training facility, including a transition to new offense for the Knicks. Jack was asked if there have been any principles of the triangle offense - which the Knicks ran last season under Phil Jackson - in Hornacek's new offense. "If there are he hasn't implemented them yet," Jack said. "So far it's a lot, (a) much more fast-paced style offense. Moving, cutting. A lot more ball movement. But from what I understand that's going to be the crux of it right now."
