How have the Orioles, who are 63-47 without Matt Wieters and 32-22 without Manny Machado, been able to move on? For starters, there's the incredible season of Nelson Cruz, who has 36 homers and 90 RBIs. But there's a lot more to the first-place club than that.

Headshrinkers Badmouth Pilgrims
Filed under: — Frederick @ 11:13 pm

On the masthead page of the Nov. 2012 issue of Monitor On Psychology, there was a cartoon published.

In this illustration, one Indian says to another, “That was nice, but I don’t want to make it in a regular thing.”

Seated in the background are the Pilgrims.

It is no doubt hoped readers will conclude this was a depiction of the first Thanksgiving Day feast in the New World; but given the state of the education system, that might be too much to hope for.

Some will likely laugh, relating to how they themselves have endured numerous dinners and parties this festive time of year they didn’t mind attending but would rather not have to endure again in the future if given a choice.

However, the Monitor On Psychology is a flagship publication of the American Psychological Association.

This front organization seeks to turn either every depravity known to man into a mental illness the individual has no control over or excuse it in some fashion altogether.

Therefore, would these otherwise political correct leftists have published a cartoon where a Pilgrim forefather made a similarly snide remark about not wanting the Indians over again any time soon?

Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings: Post-preseason changes (Shutdown Corner)
The NFL regular season officially kicks off on Thursday when Green Bay travels to Seattle to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks. Shutdown Corner will be previewing everything to come all week, capped off by our awards and Super Bowl predictions on Thursday. Here are the post-preseason power rankings, updating the initial rankings from four weeks ago, which will be otherwise known as "How could I have known the Bears defense was still going to be this bad?" Chicago (seventh in the initial rankings) looked putrid against Seattle in its third preseason game, when the starters play the most. The Bears didn't look all that great in the second preseason game at home against Jacksonville either. You'd think that a defense that signed ends Lamarr Houston, Jared Allen and Willie Young, drafted tackles Ego Ferguson and Will Sutton, and cornerback Kyle Fuller, and got linebackers D.J. Williams and Lance Briggs back from injury would be better than last season's horrible unit. It definitely didn't look that way. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] That raises the tough question of how to weigh the preseason. The Bears weren't using a full defensive game plan. So are they that bad? Is the Buccaneers' offensive line that shaky? Is the Bills offense that bad? Is the Giants offense ever going to score? Will young quarterbacks like Blake Bortles look as good in the regular season when teams actually blitz? Is there anything to make of the 49ers' preseason struggles? It's hard to evaluate because the games are meaningless. For now, the Bears have to move down a bit until their defense shows something. Other teams might find themselves bumped up or down a spot or two in our final rankings before the seasons starts (and the "last week" rankings this time are where the teams ranked before the preseason ): 32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last week: 32) Bortles looks great. I think the only reason he's not starting this week is because the Jaguars boxed themselves into a corner in May by saying he wouldn't and now they feel they have to stick to it. Bortles is their best option right now.

Bengals get through camp without setbacks (The Associated Press)
The rest of the Cincinnati Bengals were starting practice on the rain-softened grass fields Monday afternoon. Receiver Marvin Jones was headed in the opposite direction, walking down the paved path toward the trainer's room, slowed by a protective white boot on his left foot. The defending AFC North champions didn't make it through training camp unscathed. Jones is one of the few regulars missing as Cincinnati gets ready for its opener on Sunday in Baltimore.

Colts face daunting challenge to protect Luck (The Associated Press)
Andrew Luck and A.Q. Shipley started getting reacquainted at Monday's practice. While this isn't how the Colts envisioned opening the season Sunday at Denver, plugging in yet another potential new starter at center, injuries have left them with no choice. ''Going through today, taking every snap with the first group out there, he was pretty much flawless,'' coach Chuck Pagano said. ''It's not easy, but we can help him on our end.'' The Colts need all the help they can get.

NFL Preview Week: Which teams have the toughest first four games? (Shutdown Corner)
The NFL regular season officially kicks off on Thursday when Green Bay travels to Seattle to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks. Shutdown Corner will be previewing everything to come all week, capped off by our awards and Super Bowl predictions on Thursday. You can’t earn or lose a playoff spot in the first month, but you don’t want to dig a deep hole you’ll spend the last three months of the season trying to get out of. Ask the Steelers and Giants. Both teams were popular playoff picks last year, but Pittsburgh started 0-4 and the Giants started 0-6. It didn’t matter that Pittsburgh won six of its last eight or New York won seven of its last 10. Neither one made the playoffs because of the slow starts. Remember, all 16 games count the same, so the ones starting this week have the same weight in the standings as the ones in the final weeks. These teams have the toughest (and easiest) first four game stretches to start the season:

NFL Preview Week: 12 second-year players ready to break out (Shutdown Corner)
Coaches often say that the biggest growth in an NFL player occurs between the first and second season. Rookie confusion can lead to second-year clarity and a sense of being unencumbered. In this rush-to-judgment league, it's easy to forget last year's draft class. But here are some of the second-year players who might be ready to remind everyone just how good they still are: Cleveland Browns pass rusher Barkevious Mingo — When you listen to him talk this preseason, the words "comfortable" and "confident" are used a lot. That's because Mingo, who was always seen as a work in progress entering the league, now has his body and mind properly shaped to be an impact player. The Browns will have a strong top three edge rushers with Paul Kruger, Jabaal Sheard and Mingo and can rotate them and keep them fresh. Mingo likely will be an open-side rusher (the offense's left side) and will be his best to use quickness and length to distract and disrupt quarterbacks. He had three of his five sacks in his first three NFL games but wore down. Now, in Year 2, Mingo should have the stamina to put up double digits in that category.

49er Ray McDonald accused of domestic violence (The Associated Press)
San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald was arrested early Sunday on felony domestic violence charges after officers responded to a home in an upscale neighborhood, San Jose police said. Sgt. Heather Randol, a police spokeswoman, declined to discuss the circumstances that led to McDonald's arrest, saying only that officers had probable cause to take him into custody. ''I'm a good-hearted person.'' NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced tougher penalties this past week for players accused of domestic violence. ''The 49ers organization is aware of the recent reports regarding Ray McDonald and we take such matters seriously,'' general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement.
