The 2016 version of Darrelle Revis wasn’t even a shell of his legendary self, as ineffective as he once was dominant. But some good came out of his presence with last year’s Jets, amid all the missed tackles and touchdowns yielded. Just ask Juston Burris, the team’s promising young cornerback. “He was a great mentor...

- Raiders QB Derek Carr inspired by Warriors’ championship
By Vic Tafur - Wednesday Jun 14, 2017
Raiders QB Derek Carr inspired by Warriors’ championshipDerek Carr grew up a Lakers fan, but he thoroughly enjoyed watching the Warriors win the NBA title on television Monday night.[...] the Raiders’ quarterback couldn’t help but get lost in thought a little bit.“Just to watch that, it makes you hungry every time you see another team or somebody celebrate a championship,” Carr said after Tuesday’s minicamp session.Just makes you dream those dreams you had as a kid standing on the stage, holding the trophies.Carr did his childhood dreaming in Bakersfield, and he was Kobe Bryant when he was shooting jumpers as a kid.Carr also enjoyed the look he saw in the Warriors’ players eyes, and he thinks it is one that he and his teammates have developed in his three years.To do it with that crowd — the crowd was spectacular last night, full of energy, and a lot of happy people going home last night — it was great to be a part of that.The next step for Del Rio’s team would be to host a playoff game.
- Sage grouse conservation changes praised, provoke alarm
By MEAD GRUVER and MATTHEW BROWN, Associated Press - Tuesday Aug 8, 2017
The ground-dwelling sage grouse has lengthy, pointed tail feathers and is known for the male's elaborate courtship display in which air sacs in the neck are inflated to make a popping sound.The proposed changes, the result of a 60-day review of the plan by Zinke's agency, could give states wiggle room in areas such as setting population goals for sage grouse and drawing boundaries of recognized sage grouse habitat.Advocacy groups such as The Wilderness Society and National Wildlife Federation said the proposal was a backdoor attempt to allow unfettered oil and gas development that ignored previous scientific studies showing that drilling too close to sage grouse breeding areas would harm the birds.The birds inhabit parts of 11 states including large swaths of Wyoming, Utah, Idaho and Nevada — big ranching states that include areas with vast wind energy and gas drilling potential.Areas where sage grouse habitat and gas drilling overlap include the upper Green River Basin of western Wyoming, home of some of the biggest onshore natural gas fields in the U.S.Jonah Energy LLC, recognizes the existence of sage grouse winter range in the southern part of its proposed gas field about 200 miles (321.85 kilometers) northeast of Salt Lake City, said Paul Ulrich, government affairs director at the Denver-based petroleum company.
- Gilroy’s Robert Guerrero looks to regain winning form
By Vic Tafur - Thursday Jul 13, 2017
[...] the Gilroy boxer is 34 years old and the former four-division, six-time world champ hasn’t been hard to miss his past six fights.Three of those four losses were to undefeated fighters, and Guerrero (33-5-1, 18 knockouts) faces a fourth Saturday night, when he walks into the ring to face Omar Figueroa Jr. in Uniondale, N.Y.The 10-round welterweight fight will be on Fox Sports 1.Figueroa watched Guerrero’s losses to champs Floyd Mayweather Jr., Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia, and says the southpaw has his full respect.“You develop that kamikaze mentality,” Figueroa (26-0-1, 18 KOs) said in a conference call.“These are two guys that need this win and two guys that are going to throw down really, really hard,” promoter Lou DiBella said.Frankly, Robert Guerrero’s never done anything his whole career but throw down.Unfornately, Guerrero has become an opponent in recent years, a famous name that promoters use to sell tickets and beef up younger fighters’ resumes and street cred.“When they start calling you the gatekeeper, that (means) you’re an opponent, pretty much, for the guy to make that next step,” Guerrero said.[...] it comes down to lack of preparation and not being 100 percent prepared like I should, listening to my father (trainer Ruben) in the ring, what to do and it comes down to actions speak louder than words.When Guerrero moved up to 147 pounds and outpunched Selcuk Aydin in 2012, Guerrero got the idea that he could trade punches with bigger fighters.Vic Tafur is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.
