NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has received a five-year contract extension Paul Worrilow Color Rush Jersey , a reward for accomplishments that include rapid growth in the value of franchises and attendance records around the league being set annually.

Board of Governors Chairman Larry Tanenbaum of the Toronto Raptors announced the deal, one that keeps Silver under contract through the 2024 NBA Finals. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Silver, 56, led a very smooth series of negotiations with the NBA players union on the way to a new collective bargaining agreement in 2016 – one where salaries around the league soared thanks to a $24.1 billion, nine-year television and media rights deal that he helped strike with Disney and Turner Sports two years earlier.

Franchise values of the 30 NBA clubs have risen fivefold, from an estimated $12 billion when Silver took over to $60 billion now. This was also the fourth consecutive season where the league set an all-time attendance record, with 22.1 million fans attending games in 2017-18.

This season also marked the launch of the first eSports league – the NBA 2K League Keke Coutee Color Rush Jersey , which Silver has raved about.

”From the NBA’s standpoint, this is our fourth league,” he said earlier this year. ”Of course we have the NBA, the WNBA and the G League, and now this is the fourth league in our family, and that’s exactly as we’re treating it: one more professional league.”

Silver has been with the NBA since 1992, and became deputy commissioner under David Stern in 2005. When Stern retired on Feb. 1 http://www.chiefsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-breeland-speaks-jersey , 2014 after holding the office for 30 years, Silver took over as the fifth commissioner in NBA history.

The New Orleans Pelicans addressed have a couple of major, uncertain free-agent concerns and they used their only pick in Thursday night’s NBA draft to address one of them.

The Pelicans bolstered their backcourt, drafting Penn State point guard Tony Carr in the second round. New Orleans used the 51st overall pick to take Carr, 6-foot-5, who averaged 19.6 points (second-most in the Big Ten), 5.0 assists and 4.9 rebounds as a sophomore last season.

While the biggest question facing New Orleans this offseason is the future of free-agent All-Star forward of DeMarcus Cousins Kenny Young Color Rush Jersey , the organization faces questions about a key agent in point guard Rajon Rondo.

”He can play” both guard positions, Pelicans general manager Dell Demps said of Carr. ”We like his size. We like his ability to score. We like his ability to make plays. He’s pretty crafty and he played in a tough conference and was able to score at an elite level.”

As New Orleans looks to resolve those situations, the Pelicans wanted to upgrade their perimeter game this offseason, particularly with scorers who can create their own shot off the dribble.

Carr shot just 40.8 percent from the floor last season, but that was an improvement from the 37.7 percent he shot while averaging 13.2 points as a freshman. He improved his three-point percentage from 32.0 as a freshman to 43.3 as a sophomore.

The Pelicans hope that upward trend continues with Rondo’s situation unclear.

Starting shooting guard Jrue Holiday can also play the point, but backup point guard Ian Clark is also a free agent. Last year’s No. 2 pick, Frank Jackson http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-will-hernandez-jersey , is a combo guard who missed all of his rookie season because of a foot injury.

Carr said he has studied Holiday, who was named to the NBA All-Defensive team and averaged 19 points per game last season.

He said like Holiday, ”I can play on both ends of the floor. I can score and I can also facilitate for others.”

Rondo, 32, was signed to a one-year deal last summer and proved to be a valuable veteran presence on a team with little playoff experience.

Demps said the uncertainty of Rondo’s and Clark’s future with the team wasn’t a factor in the Pelicans selecting Carr.

”We really looked at the best player available,” Demps said. ”But I don’t want to get too excited. We’re going to get him in here next week. We’ll see when we get a live look at him. There’s no guarantee he’ll be on the team this year.”
Cousins’ status is complicated by a couple of factors. He’s coming off a torn Achilles that ended his season in January, and the Pelicans played well after acquiring Niko Mirotic in a February trade with Chicago to replace Cousins. That trade cost them their first-round pick.

New Orleans wound up winning 48 games and sweeping Portland in a first-round playoff series before losing to Golden State in five games.

Demps said July 1 Michael Dickson Color Rush Jersey , the first day of free agency, ”is going to be a busy day for us.”

He said the Pelicans have been communicating with the agents for Cousins and Rondo.

”They’re both big parts of what we did,” Demps said.

Demps added that Cousins’ rehabilitation is ”right on schedule,” adding that Cousins is ”committed to getting back and being ready to play.”

HOUSTON — Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch occasionally bristles at conventional methodology Troy Niklas Color Rush Jersey , particularly given the availability of superior data and how its dissemination shapes decisions.

For instance, last Friday in Kansas City, the Astros (50-26) recalled first baseman Tyler White to take the roster spot of left-handed reliever Reymin Guduan, who made one appearance two days earlier before being placed on the paternity list for the birth of his child.

That move left the Astros one arm short in the bullpen and, when Guduan exhausted his time on the paternity list, the organization returned him to Triple-A Fresno instead of recalling him to Houston.

The Astros have completed two series with an extra position player on their bench Baker Mayfield Browns Jersey , a move that some might consider unorthodox but one Hinch is reticent to harp on, despite being asked about his roster configuration more than once in the past week.

“In the heat in Kansas City, it was nice to have an extra guy when we won by a lot,” Hinch said of a 10-2 victory on June 16. “Maneuvering some pinch-hit opportunities has been key. Obviously, it allowed us to start an all right-handed lineup (Tuesday against Rays left-hander Blake Snell) and give (second baseman Jose) Altuve most of the day off.

“Our starters have gone pretty deep … the last two outings, which has allowed the bullpen to get rested. It feels a little different to have seven relievers Evan Bouchard Oilers Jersey , but in actuality, that’s too many. I’d have five position players on the bench if I could.”

The Astros, who will open a three-game series with the Royals on Friday at Minute Maid Park, will stand pat with seven relievers for the immediate future.

Right-hander Joe Smith, currently on the 10-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation, has begun a throwing program and is poised for a return to the active roster that could reset the bullpen balance.

Left-hander Dallas Keuchel (4-8 http://www.cardinalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-christian-kirk-jersey , 4.15 ERA) will start the opener for Houston. He is 4-1 with a 2.89 ERA in seven career starts against the Royals and picked up the win over Kansas City in his last start, allowing two unearned runs, six hits and one walk with five strikeouts in six innings in a 10-2 victory on June 16.

Keuchel had been 0-3 with a 7.33 ERA in his previous five starts.

The Royals will counter with left-hander Danny Duffy (3-7, 5.55 ERA) on Friday. Duffy surrendered seven runs (six earned), seven hits and three walks with five strikeouts in six innings of his previous start, a 10-2 loss to the Astros on June 16. He is 2-3 with a 5.29 ERA in eight career appearances (five starts) against Houston.

Kansas City (22-52) has dropped nine consecutive games and 15 of 16 overall Adam Boqvist Blackhawks Jersey , including all three games during a series against the Astros last weekend at Kauffman Stadium. The Royals are batting .188 this month, their worst record in any month under ninth-year manager Ned Yost.

The Royals last won a road series on May 21-23, taking the final two games of a three-game set at St. Louis.

A look at what’s happening around the majors Saturday:


A couple of Boston’s top hitters could be in line for a big weekend in Kansas City. Heading into the series opener Friday night, Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez and Mitch Moreland had gone a combined 15 for 27 (.556) with six home runs in three games against the Royals. The trio will have another opportunity to feast on Kansas City pitching on Saturday night when 22-year-old rookie Brad Keller takes the mound for the Royals. Keller has a 2.09 ERA in 56 innings this season and is making his seventh start.


Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Robbie Ray looked sharp during his first start since missing two months with an oblique strain, throwing six scoreless innings in a win over Miami. Ray wasn’t nearly as effective in his last start when he allowed six runs in five innings against St. Louis. He is hoping to bounce back when he takes the mound against the San Diego Padres.

New York Yankees ace Luis Severino made the jump to Cy Young Award contender last season Antonio Callaway Color Rush Jersey , finishing third in the American League voting after posting a 14-6 record and 2.98 ERA. The 24-year-old right-hander has been even better this season, leading the AL in wins (13) and ERA (1.98). Severino will try to add to his stellar resume and help New York keep pace with Boston when he takes the mound at Toronto.


Seattle’s James Paxton has experienced plenty of success this season, like his no-hitter against Toronto on May 8. The left-hander had his best start since the no-hitter in his last outing, striking out 11 while pitching eight innings of two-hit ball in a 1-0 win over Kansas City. Paxton will try to continue his breakout season when the Mariners hosts the Colorado Rockies.

Glen Gulutzan took the fall for the Calgary Flames‘ shortcomings this season with his dismissal Tuesday.

With a year remaining on his contract as head coach http://www.ramsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-john-kelly-jersey , Gulutzan was fired along with assistant Dave Cameron and Paul Jerrard less than two years after they were hired.

A poor home record, a wretched power play and a late-season dive contributed to Calgary finishing out of the playoffs with a 37-35-10 record.

”Accountability lies with all of us,” Flames general manager Brad Treliving said at a hastily-called news conference at Scotiabank Saddledome.

”As a manager I lead that charge. Our hockey staff leads that charge and also our players. When you make a decision (like) I made today, there is lots of blame to go around.”

Gulutzan coached Calgary to the playoffs in his first season, but the Flames were eliminated in four straight games by the Anaheim Ducks in 2017.

The additions of veteran goaltender Mike Smith and defenseman Travis Hamonic were considered to be the pieces of the puzzle that would get the Flames deeper into the playoffs.

Riding a seven-game win streak and sitting second in the Pacific Division in January, the Flames lost six in a row coming out of their bye week and continued to struggle coming down the stretch.

The team held down the Western Conference’s final wild-card spot Feb. 25, but managed just two victories in its final 11 games of the regular season.

Smith’s performance dropped late in the season after missing a month with a lower-body injury.

Top-line center Sean Monahan played through multiple injuries that required surgeries when he was shut down for the season March 21.

”We relied too much on too few,” Treliving said. ”Certainly the lack of depth, or the lack of contributions by many, was a big part of the problem we had.”

A 17-20-4 record at the Saddledome and a power play that ranked 29th in the league at 16 percent were a factor in Calgary missing the playoffs.

Gulutzan Jeff Locke Color Rush Jersey , 46, was Treliving’s first head-coaching hire.

Treliving extended the contract of Gulutzan’s predecessor, Bob Hartley, in December 2014, but fired him 17 months later and brought Gulutzan on board.

Hartley had a reputation for being hard on players, while Gulutzan was considered more approachable.

”Personality didn’t have a whole lot to do with this decision,” Treliving said. ”I don’t necessarily think our group is a difficult group to coach. There’s challenges with every group.

”By no means is today’s decision letting anyone off the hook. Ultimately you have success when your players perform well. I felt in order to get us to that level, we had to make this decision.”

So the Flames will hire their fourth head coach in nine years after Gulutzan (2016-17) Hartley (2012-16) and Brent Sutter (2009-12). Calgary has finished outside the playoffs seven of the past nine years.

”You can’t churn (coaches),” Treliving said. ”Having said that, you can’t not make a decision for the same reason. Ultimately it’s my responsibility to get it right. I really try to avoid emotional decisions.

”This is not a step back from the season and a need to throw a body on the tarmac.”

Assistant coach Martin Gelinas Michael Dickson Color Rush Jersey , goaltending coach Jordan Singalet and video coach Jamie Pringle remain with the team.

”There won’t be any other further coaching moves at this stage,” Treliving said.

Gulutzan has a 146-125-23 NHL coaching record that also includes two seasons with the Dallas Stars (2011-2013).

Recently unemployed NHL coaches include Alain Vigneault, Dan Bylsma, Dave Tippett and former Flames coach Darryl Sutter.

”I think having experience in this league is critical,” Treliving said.

More NHL hockey: Sacramento Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic acknowledged he didn’t have a very good night against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Until the game’s closing seconds.

Bogdanovic knocked down a 16-footer with just over a second remaining, then tipped the ensuing Memphis inbounds pass to help Sacramento escape with a 94-93 victory Friday night.

Bogdanovic saved the Kings from blowing a double-digit lead in the final four minutes and salvaged a night where the rookie guard from Serbia was 4 of 11 from the field, including missing all five of his 3-pointers for eight points.

”It felt good, honestly, especially when you have a bad night like I had in terms of trying to find a rhythm on offense,” Bogdanovic said of the final shot Kolton Miller Color Rush Jersey , later adding: ”I’ve been working on these shots, so sometimes you make it, sometimes not.”

Bogdanovic’s jumper capped a close game between two teams near the bottom of the Western Conference standings – a game that saw four lead changes in the final minute. Dillon Brooks had given Memphis a 93-92 lead 6 seconds before Bogdanovic’s game-winner, and after a corner 3-pointer from Justin Jackson with 17 seconds left.

”I think the guys defended it well,” Memphis interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff said, adding that both shots were contested, ”but you’ve got to give them credit, they made good offensive plays.”

Willie Cauley-Stein led the Kings with 18 points, Buddy Hield finished with 14, and De’Aaron Fox and Jackson each scored 13.

MarShon Brooks had 23 points for Memphis http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jordan-whitehead-jersey , while Dillon Brooks added 16.

Memphis, which trailed 87-77 with about 4 minutes left, clicked off 10 straight points to tie the game. The teams exchanged leads the rest of the way until Bogdanovic’s winner.

”Not a real pretty game, but the last two minutes were a lot of fun to be part of,” Kings coach Dave Joerger said. ”Certainly, it was exciting with both teams making shots. . It was shot-for-shot coming down the stretch.”


Kings: Cauley-Stein hit his first five shots in the game. He has reached double figures in the last six games. . Missed all six of their 3-pointers in the first half and finished 6 of 24 from outside the arc. .The victory was only the second for Sacramento in the last 16 road games against the Grizzlies.

Grizzlies: Brooks entered the game averaging 23.3 points in his three games since signing a 10-day contract with the team. He signed a multiyear deal with Memphis earlier Friday. … Rookie C Ivan Rabb had 12 points and 11 rebounds, recording his second double-double. … Played with eight players sitting out, including Marc Gasol (rest), Tyreke Evans (not with team/personal reasons) among others. … Used their 34th starting lineup of the season.


Kings F Zach Randolph missed his eighth straight game Jordan Whitehead Color Rush Jersey , the last four listed as personal reasons. However, he did come to the Kings bench about 2 minutes into the game, drawing applause from Memphis fans. Randolph played seven years with the Grizzlies before signing with Sacramento in the off season. He spent several timeouts meeting with former teammates Mike Conley Jr. and Marc Gasol, neither of whom played Friday night, while waving and shaking hands with fans.


The Kings outrebounded Memphis 42-38, including a 22-13 advantage in the second half. Sacramento converted 6 of 18 shots from outside the arc after intermission, and, while not great, it was better than Memphis making 3 of 13.


Kings: Play their final road game of the season on Monday at San Antonio.

Grizzlies: Host the Detroit Pistons in their home finale on Sunday.

Taking on the NFL and football’s Super Bowl champs Sean Newcomb Atlanta Braves Jersey , President Donald Trump gave the boot to a White House ceremony for the Philadelphia Eagles and instead threw his own brief ”Celebration of America” after it became clear most players weren’t going to show up.

Both sides traded hot accusations about who was to blame.

Trump tried to turn the fracas into a referendum on patriotism and tie it to the dispute over players who have taken a knee during the national anthem to protest racism and police brutality. However, Eagles players never knelt during the ”Star-Spangled Banner,” throughout the 2017 season and their march to the Super Bowl.

The White House accused Eagles team members of pulling a ”political stunt” and abandoning their fans by backing out at the last minute. Indeed, few apparently were going to come, though some expressed disappointment that they’d been disinvited and complained Trump was unfairly painting them as anti-American.

CLEVELAND (AP) – Stephen Curry and LeBron James spoke their minds last year. They have not changed their minds this year.

No matter whose team wins the NBA championship, neither superstar will be at the White House anytime soon.

On the day when the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to be there to commemorate winning the Super Bowl – a visit that was canceled by President Donald Trump – Curry and James were among those speaking out at the NBA Finals in support of the Eagles.


WASHINGTON (AP) – The former president of USA Gymnastics refused to answer questions from a Senate subcommittee about how he handled allegations of sexual abuse by former team doctor Larry Nassar, and another former executive sat next to him and asserted that her former boss instructed her and others to keep quiet about athletes’ claims.

Rhonda Faehn, the former senior vice president of USA Gymnastics, said she first reported an allegation against Nassar to Steve Penny, her then-boss Josh Sweat Color Rush Jersey , on June 17, 2015. Nassar was not arrested until more than a year later. He is now serving decades in prison for sexual assault and possession of child pornography, and hundreds of athletes have said they were abused by him, including Olympic gymnasts Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Simone Biles.

The revelations about Nassar’s conduct over two decades and the way it was handled by Penny and others have led Congress to call for drastic reforms of the U.S. Olympic Committee, USA Gymnastics and other sports’ governing bodies.

Faehn said Penny warned her and others not to discuss the allegations against Nassar and that she wrongly assumed he had taken the allegations to law enforcement.


NEW YORK (AP) – Lou Lamoriello moved quickly to shake up the New York Islanders by firing coach Doug Weight and general manager Garth Snow and naming himself the team’s new GM just two weeks after taking over as president of hockey operations.

Lamoriello made the moves that begin to reshape the organization in his image, two weeks to the day ownership said he’d have ”full authority over all hockey matters.” Lamoriello left the Toronto Maple Leafs to run the Islanders and will begin the search for a new coach immediately.

The end of Snow’s tenure seemed inevitable after owners Jon Ledecky and Scott Malkin brought in Lamoriello to oversee the hockey operations department. The Islanders missed the playoffs eight times in Snow’s 12 years as general manager, including the past two seasons.

Weight, who took over for the fired Jack Capuano in January 2017, just finished his first full season as head coach.


NEW YORK (AP) – Something Bob Baffert always dreads has come true ahead of the Belmont Stakes: Justify drew the No. 1 post for the colt’s bid to sweep the Triple Crown.

The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner was made the early 4-5 favorite in the 10-horse field for Saturday’s race.

Baffert is not a fan of the inside post for his horses http://www.broncosauthorizedshops.com/authentic-daesean-hamilton-jersey , no matter what the race.

History, however, may be on Justify’s side. Since 1905, a leading 23 horses have won from the No. 1 post. The last to win from there was Empire Maker in 2003 when he spoiled Funny Cide’s Triple Crown bid.

Justify won the first two legs of the series from the No. 7 post. He ran on sloppy tracks both times and the forecast for Saturday calls for a 60 percent chance of rain.


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Pitcher Meghan King settled down after a rough start to complete a record-setting Women’s College World Series, and Florida State beat Washington 8-3 to claim its first national title.

The Seminoles (58-12) won the best-of-three championship series 2-0. They lost their opener before winning six straight to become just the third team to come through the losers’ bracket and take the title.

King broke a World Series record for lowest ERA among pitchers who threw at least 10 innings with a mark of 0.20. She earned four wins and a save in Oklahoma City while allowing just one earned run in 34 1/3 innings.

King was on such a run that Florida State’s ace throughout the season, Kylee Hanson, never had to pitch in the championship series.

Florida State’s Jessie Warren, who hit .520 in the World Series, was named most outstanding player. She went 3 for 4 with a homer on Tuesday.

Monmouth Park Racetrack says it won’t take any sports bets Thursday night.

But the track’s plans beyond that remain unclear.

The Oceanport, New Jersey track near the Jersey shore says it will announce soon when it plans to begin taking bets at its sports wagering lounge.

The New Jersey Legislature approved a sports betting bill Thursday http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-p.j.-hall-jersey , but Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy won’t say when he’ll act on it.

One state lawmaker notes that language that would have prohibited a casino or track from taking sports bets before the bill is signed was stripped from the bill before it was approved.


5:20 p.m.

Texas billionaire Tilman Fertitta is thanking the New Jersey Legislature for a last-minute fix that will allow his Golden Nugget casino in Atlantic City to take sports bets – just not on basketball.

Fertitta owns the NBA’s Houston Rockets, and would have been shut out of sports betting under previous versions of the bill.

But the change allows him to offer bets on other sports except for basketball.

Fertitta says he eventually hopes to persuade New Jersey to let the Golden Nuggets take bets on basketball teams other than the Rockets, which is what Nevada regulators allow.

5 p.m.

Major League Baseball, the NBA and the PGA Tour want New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy to ”fix” the sports betting law on his desk to address concerns about the integrity of betting on their games.

The leagues are seeking payments to help them police betting patterns, and want better information sharing.

They say the law passed Thursday by the state Legislature does not address those concerns.

Lawmakers rejected the integrity fee payments.

It remains unclear when sports betting might begin in New Jersey, or when the Democratic governor might act on the bill.


4:55 p.m.

A major bookmaking company has signed a contract to offer sports betting at tracks in New Jersey and New York.

Moments after the New Jersey Legislature gave final approval to a bill legalizing sports betting, Betfair US announced it will offer sports betting at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, just outside New York City.

It will do likewise at Tioga Downs Racetrack in New York.

Betfair says it will start offering sports betting this summer and will be operational at the tracks before the NFL season begins in September.

Betfair US is a subsidiary of Paddy Power Betfair, one of the largest publicly traded sports betting companies in the world.


4:40 p.m.

A New Jersey lawmaker says a Jersey shore racetrack is technically free to start taking bets immediately, even before a bill legalizing sports betting is signed by Gov. Phil Murphy.

Republican state Sen. Declan O’Scanlan says language was dropped from the bill that prohibited any sports betting facility from opening until the bill is signed.

That appears to clear the way for Monmouth Park in Oceanport to begin taking bets right away. The track has loudly wanted to begin taking bets Friday.

But its chief Breeland Speaks Color Rush Jersey , Dennis Drazin, also has said he does not want to antagonize the governor.

It remains unclear what the track’s plans are and when the governor might act.

3:35 p.m.

The New Jersey Legislature has given final approval to a bill legalizing sports betting.

The state Senate approved the bill Thursday afternoon shortly after the Assembly approved it.

It now goes to the desk of Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, who hasn’t said when he’ll sign it.

Murphy’s office says the bill will get a careful review, but won’t estimate when the governor will act on it.

Monmouth Park racetrack has been particularly vocal about its desire to start taking bets on Friday.


3:10 p.m.

The New Jersey Assembly has unanimously approved a bill that would legalize sports betting.

The bill approved Thursday now goes to the state Senate, which also is expected to approve it, and then to the desk of Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy. It’s unclear whether he will sign it into law.

The Assembly amended the bill to allow casinos that own more than 10 percent of a sports team to still offer sports betting, but only on sports other than those in which they own a team. That would let the Golden Nugget back in the game.

New Jersey lawmakers are rethinking a law that would have banned one Atlantic City casino from offering sports betting.

The state Assembly is expected to amend its proposed sports betting law to allow casinos that own more than 10 percent of a sports team to still offer sports betting http://www.chiefsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-breeland-speaks-jersey , but only on sports other than those in which they own a team.

For better or for worse Korey Toomer Color Rush Jersey , Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson is an expert when it comes to knowing what the NHL looks for when punishing someone for a dangerous hit, and he thinks Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman could be in trouble.

Wilson, who served a three-game suspension earlier this postseason, spoke out about the way Stralman slammed him into the glass in the first period of what turned into a 4-2 victory for Tampa Bay over Washington in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final on Tuesday night.

Stralman was sent to the penalty box for boarding on the play.

”It’s a vulnerable position. There’s no doubt there’s contact with my head. If I’m wearing a helmet from five years ago, I think I’m probably unconscious. So we’ll see what they say,” Wilson said, referring to the possibility of the league’s department of player safety reviewing the matter.

On the play Antonio Senzatela Colorado Rockies Jersey , Wilson was facing the glass not too far from the Capitals’ bench when Stralman hit him from behind. Wilson dropped to the ice and put his right glove to his helmet.

After the game, which allowed the Lightning to cut their series deficit to 2-1, Wilson talked about the ”goose egg on the side of my head” and acknowledged, ”It took me a little bit to collect myself.”

He said the hit included ”everything I’ve heard all year: He sees (jersey) numbers for a good amount of time, and he elevates through the back of my shoulder and head.”

Capitals coach Barry Trotz referred to those as ”red flags,” and added, ”I understand where Tom’s coming from Pat Valaika Colorado Rockies Jersey , no question.”

”That’s a lot of `don’ts’ for me. From what they’ve been telling me, that’s a lot of `don’ts.’ If I make that hit, 100 percent I’m probably sitting out. So we’ll see. It’s playoffs. It’s an intense time of year,” Wilson said. ”I don’t think he’s a malicious player, at all. But it’s a pretty dangerous hit. I think a lot of people will say that.”

The game was scoreless at the time of that hit, but Tampa Bay would go on to take a 3-0 lead en route to the victory. Wilson thought that Stralman’s play might have set a tone that affected the way play went.

”(When) someone gets run from behind, for the next couple shifts http://www.texansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jordan-akins-jersey , you might be a little more tentative coming back for pucks,” Wilson said. ”We’ve got to play through it. There’s going to be emotion.”

Senior vice president of player safety George Parros was at Tuesday’s game. During the season, Parros and Wilson met for about an hour to go over video clips of various hits so the player could understand what the league is watching for.

During Washington’s elimination of two-time reigning Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh in the second round of the playoffs, Wilson missed three games after breaking Penguins rookie Zach Aston-Reese’s jaw in a violent collision.

Wilson also was forced to sit out two preseason games following a late hit on an opponent, then was suspended for the first four games of the regular season for boarding a player shortly after his return.

Emails, recordings and testimony prove that four former employees of the truck stop chain Pilot Flying J conspired to defraud customers in a fuel rebate scam that has already resulted in more than a dozen guilty pleas, a prosecutor said Monday.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Trey Hamilton told jurors in his closing argument that conspirators in the scheme identified potential targets http://www.broncosauthorizedshops.com/authentic-daesean-hamilton-jersey , cheated them out of money and lulled them into a false sense of security.

Benjamin Vernia, an attorney for former sales staffer Heather Jones, said the government had ”fallen far short” of proving its case against his client. Attorneys for former Pilot president Mark Hazelwood, former vice president Scott ”Scooter” Wombold and former sales staffer Karen Mann will present their closing arguments Tuesday. The trial began three months ago but has taken time off for holidays and bad weather.

Pilot Flying J is controlled by the family of Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam. The Haslams haven’t been charged with any wrongdoing. The governor has not been involved in the company in recent years.

Prosecutors say the four defendants participated in a scheme to shortchange trucking customers on diesel rebates. Fourteen former members of the Pilot sales team have pleaded guilty to participating in the scheme, and the company paid a $92 million penalty to the federal government and settled a class-action lawsuit for $85 million.
Hamilton spent much of his closing argument outlining how each of the four defendants was involved.

He said former Pilot account representative Dan Peyton informed Hazelwood that a company had been shortchanged by Pilot. Hamilton also said Hazelwood received emails showing Pilot representatives were offering companies one price and actually charging something different.

Hamilton noted that Wombold worked with Brian Mosher, a former sales director who already has pleaded guilty and who testified in this trial. Hamilton said there’s no evidence of Wombold ever telling Mosher defrauding customers was wrong and advising him to stop. Hamilton also cited emails indicating Mann had participated in the fraud as well as testimony that Jones had sent spreadsheets to Mosher to assist in the scheme.

Vernia disputed the notion that Jones willingly participated in any sort of fraud. Vernia said Jones even had asked Mosher at one point if what they were doing was OK, and that Mosher had told her it was.

”Brian Mosher had no compunction about lying to Heather Jones http://www.bengalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jessie-bates-iii-jersey ,” Vernia said.

The San Antonio Spurs face a near-must-win situation when they host the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night.

And nothing would make the Trail Blazers happier than to snatch that victory away from the Spurs and rain a little on the parade San Antonio has enjoyed for the past two decades.

The Spurs (45-34) are in desperation mode although they begin play in the sixth playoff spot in the Western Conference with three games to play. San Antonio is tied with New Orleans and Oklahoma City for fifth place in the Western Conference standings Cheap Lamar Jackson Jersey , a game behind fourth-place Utah. But only one game separates fifth place from ninth place, with the top eight teams earning spots in the postseason.

San Antonio heads home for its next-to-last home game after two straight, last-second losses in Los Angeles, first to the Clippers Tuesday and then to the Lakers, with the latter a 122-112 setback in overtime the following night.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 28 points for the Spurs in the loss to the Lakers, while Dejounte Murray hit for 23 points and took 10 rebounds, and Pau Gasol had 11 points and 12 rebounds. Rudy Gay added 14 points off the bench for San Antonio.

The loss was San Antonio’s seventh straight on the road and kept the Spurs’ magic number to clinch their 21st consecutive playoff berth at two. Two of San Antonio’s last three games are against teams with winning records, including their season finale at New Orleans on Wednesday.

“Man, we’ve got to know that every game is a playoff, a Game 7 for us,” Murray said. “We’ve got to play for 48 minutes, and if the game decides to go to overtime like it did tonight, we’ve got to be ready to play even more.

“We are staying together Ito Smith Color Rush Jersey ,” Murray added. “One thing I can say, we are staying together. There is a lot going on. When you lose games, it is easy to lose focus.”

For the first time in 18 years, the Spurs will not win 50 games in a season. And Gasol said that San Antonio’s margin for error is shrinking.

“We have been talking about that,” Gasol said. “It just gets slimmer and slimmer. It was the worst outcome, losing two games that we had our chances and even times, especially (against the Clippers), were in control of with big leads. But two losses, and that is reality.”

Portland (48-31) heads to the Alamo City in third place in the Western Conference standings, a game up on Utah but already assured of a spot in the playoffs. The Trail Blazers lost their most recent game at Houston 96-94 on Thursday despite allowing just 12 points in the fourth quarter and 30 points in the second half.

CJ McCollum led the Trail Blazers with 16 points, and Jusuf Nurkic had his 25th double-double of the season, finishing with 14 points and 11 rebounds in the loss. Wade Baldwin IV scored 14 points while Caleb Swanigan had a career-high 10 points and Evan Turner had 10 points for Portland.

“I know we put in all the guys who don’t play a lot, everybody’s hungry http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-anthony-averett-jersey ,” Baldwin said. “Everybody wants to play in this league, everybody wants to show what they can do. I think everybody did a fantastic job of showing that tonight.”

Portland dropped its second consecutive game and fell to 4-5 since a 13-game winning streak launched them up the Western Conference standings

“Those guys at the end just worked their (butts) off,” Portland coach Terry Stotts said. “Played hard, were aggressive defensively. It was really impressive. Too bad we couldn’t go to overtime or win it, but I was really proud of the way they played.”

Portland’s star guard Damian Lillard has been hampered by an ankle injury but said Friday that he expects to play on Saturday in San Antonio.

The Latest on Thursday night’s NBA draft (all times local):

11 p.m.

The Atlantic Coast Conference, which tied its record with nine NCAA Tournament teams earlier this year, had the most players selected in the first round of the NBA draft: six players.

Duke accounted for half the ACC’s total with Marvin Bagley III, Wendell Carter Jr. and Grayson Allen.

After setting a league record with eight NCAA teams, the Southeastern Conference ranked second again with five first-round picks – but only two from Kentucky. The SEC also tied its own mark with four lottery picks for the second time in four years for the league.

The Big Ten matched its four NCAA teams with four first-round draft picks.

The Big 12 fell far short of matching its seven NCAA berths with only three first-round picks. But the Pac 12, which had Arizona’s Deandre Ayton taken No. 1 overall, matched its three NCAA teams with three draft picks.

And Villanova, the defending national champ, helped the Big East top its two No. 1 seeds. Three Wildcats wound up drafted among the first 30 picks.

9:10 p.m.

Michael Porter Jr. insists that he’s the best player in this draft.

Apparently Josh Tomlin Cleveland Indians Jersey , 13 teams disagreed.

Porter Jr., whose college career at Missouri was all of three games because of back surgery, fell to the very last lottery spot in Thursday night’s draft. The Denver Nuggets decided Porter Jr. was worth the gamble, taking him with the No. 14 selection.

Porter played just 53 minutes in college and cancelled a workout in recent days because of what was described as a hip issue.

The freefall is going to cost Porter some money. The top pick in this year’s draft, Deandre Ayton, is guaranteed to make at least $6.7 million. Porter Jr. is only guaranteed $2.4 million.

9 p.m.

Before Deandre Ayton was selected by the Phoenix Suns with the first pick of the draft, he had signed a multimillion deal with Puma.

Ayton, one of three players in this class who made the choice to go with Puma over bigger brands such as Nike and Adidas, says it was an easy and personal decision for him.

He says, ”In the Bahamas, a lot of people cannot afford Nike or Adidas. Puma is the main brand and it’s very affordable, and growing up around that brand, I’m used to that brand.”

Ayton http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-nathan-shepherd-jersey , who played at Arizona, is from Nassau, Bahamas. The inside of his draft tuxedo not only featured Bahama’s flag but also Nigeria and Jamaica ones. His mom is Jamaican and Bahamian. His dad is Nigerian.

Marvin Bagley III and Zhaire Smith also signed with Puma.

Ayton says he wants to ”start my own thing,” adding, ”I want to be dominant in my own brand, and I want to have my own signature one day to make it global.”

7:50 p.m.

Luka Doncic won a championship on Tuesday. For Real Madrid. In Spain.

Two days later, he’s in the NBA.

The Slovenian teenager -considered one of the best prospects to come out of Europe- was picked No. 3 overall by the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday night, amid reports that he would quickly be traded to Dallas for the No. 5 pick and a future first-round selection.

This marks the seventh time in the last 13 drafts that at least one player has gone in the top five and will be entering the NBA directly from an international team. Andrea Bargnani went No. 1 overall in 2006; the last top-five to come from an international roster was Dragan Bender, who went No. 4 to Phoenix in 2016.

The international touch on this draft is already pronounced, with No. 1 pick Deandre Ayton being born in the Bahamas.

7:40 p.m.

Only eight years after playing basketball for the first time, Deandre Ayton is the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft.

The Phoenix Suns made the long-expected move official on Thursday night, taking the Arizona center with the top overall pick. He’s the first Arizona player to go No. 1 in the draft; Mike Bibby was No. 2 in 1998 and Derrick Williams was No. 2 in 2011.

It’s history for Ayton, and history for his homeland as well.

Ayton is just the second player born in the Bahamas to go No. 1 Brandon Guyer Cleveland Indians Jersey , joining Mychal Thompson – the top pick in the 1978 draft by the Portland Trail Blazers.

The 7-foot-1 Ayton, who didn’t start playing basketball until he was 12, averaged 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds per game in his lone college season. He’s the ninth consecutive one-and-done player to be taken No. 1 overall.


7:25 p.m.

The players in New York who were headed to the Green Room were individually introduced on stage before the draft officially started. They had their names announced, special accolades and where they are from. Parents also got to walk out with their sons.

Members of the Jr. NBA lined up to clap and cheer, creating a walkway for the draft prospects as they went to sit down at their respective tables.

This is the first time NBA has started the draft with an elaborate introduction.

6:40 p.m.

Avery Johnson is back at Barclays Center, home of some turbulent times.

Draft night will be a celebratory one for the Alabama coach, who is seated at the green room table of star Crimson Tide point guard Collin Sexton.

Johnson was the Nets‘ coach when they moved to Brooklyn in 2012 but was fired with a 14-14 record early in that first season shortly after they were blown out at home by Boston in a nationally televised Christmas Day game.

He eventually ended up at Alabama and coached here last season when the Crimson Tide played in the Barclays Center Classic. They finished their championship game los.

WASHINGTON — With their first Stanley Cup playoff berth since 2012 safely in hand http://www.dolphinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-durham-smythe-jersey , the New Jersey Devils have one game left to see if they can improve their position when they visit the Washington Capitals on Saturday night.

The Devils (44-28-9) clinched a playoff spot by defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 on Thursday night at the Prudential Center.

“We did it. We didn’t rely on anyone. It’s a sense of accomplishment,” Devils forward Brian Boyle told nhl.com. “The battling for playoff positioning and trying to clinch, it’s all part of the fun of it. Emotions rise, tensions rise, you work hard and you get rewarded. We did it together.”

The Devils will finish with at least 97 points — 99 if they defeat the Capitals — far above the 70 points by last season’s club that finished at the bottom of the Metropolitan Division.

With one game remaining http://www.coltsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-kemoko-turay-jersey , the Devils are in position to clinch the first wild card into the playoffs from the Eastern Conference. They can finish as high as third in the Metropolitan Division or as low as the second wild-card spot.

Against the Leafs, New Jersey fell behind 1-0 in the first period, but Pavel Zacha and Miles Wood scored in the second period. Keith Kincaid finished with 31 saves, including 12 in the third period.

The Devils also earned this spot, going 10-2-1 in their past 13 games.

“It’s a credit to a lot of guys in here for just coming up big when the pressure is on http://www.redskinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-da_ron-payne-jersey ,” forward Taylor Hall told nhl.com. “That’s what I’m proud of, how we’ve played through the stretch here.”

Washington’s playoff position is set, though their opponent is not. The Metropolitan Division winner will draw the top wild-card team, which may not be decided until Sunday when the Florida Panthers face the Boston Bruins.

The Capitals (48-26-7), the two-time defending Presidents’ Trophy winners http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-connor-williams-jersey , watched the Nashville Predators secure this season’s trophy with a 4-3 win over the Capitals on Thursday night at Capital One Arena.

“But I like the way we’re playing,” Capitals coach Barry Trotz told The Washington Post after the Capitals lost for just the second time since March 20. “We’re playing with lots of speed, we’re playing with lots of pace, and that was a good test.”

Evgeny Kuznetsov scored twice for Washington and Alex Ovechkin scored his NHL-leading 47th goal, meaning he will need a hat trick Saturday night to reach 50 goals for the eighth time.

“Right now Sean Newcomb Atlanta Braves Jersey , our focus is not on 50, our focus is on the playoffs,” Ovechkin told nhl.com. “And being in shape. We didn’t get hurt. That’s the most important thing.”

Kuznetsov, who added an assist, posted his 82nd point of the season and became the 16th player in franchise history to reach 80 and the first player other than Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom to do it since Alexander Semin in the 2009-10 season.
Kuznetsov’s 27 goals this season are a personal season high.

Phillip Grubauer made 25 saves for Washington. Braden Holtby will likely start against the Devils http://www.falconsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-justin-bethel-jersey , and the wait will begin for Trotz to reveal his playoff goaltending plans.

In Holtby’s last three starts, he is 2-1-0 with a 2.35 goals-against average and a .931 save percentage.

Los Angeles Angels rookie reliever Jake Jewell has a broken right leg and could miss the rest of the season.

The Angels put Jewell on the 10-day disabled list Thursday, a day after he was injured in a game against Boston. He’s scheduled to have surgery Friday.

Jewell was carted off the field at Fenway Park on Wednesday night. Called up from Triple-A earlier in the day, he appeared to catch his cleat as he covered the plate on a run-scoring wild pitch and fractured his fibula. The 25-year-old was hurt in his third big league game.

The Angels recalled right-handed pitcher Eduardo Paredes from Triple-A Salt Lake and added right-hander Taylor Cole to the major league roster.

The club also optioned infielder Nolan Fontana to Salt Lake and transferred infielder Zack Cozart to the 60-day DL. Cozart is scheduled to have season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder on Friday.

The Chicago
Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer says he hasn’t made a decision regarding the status of quarterback Sam Bradford http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-sylvester-williams-jersey , who has practiced the last two weeks in an attempt to be activated from the injured reserve list.

Case Keenum will be the Vikings starting quarterback in Sunday’s NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints.

After practice on Friday, Zimmer refuted a report that Bradford might be activated.

A writer for the Boston Globe tweeted Friday the ”Vikings plan to dress” Bradford, who hasn’t been active since Week 5 against the Chicago Bears.

”I don’t know how the Boston Globe would know because I haven’t made any decisions yet http://www.falconsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-ito-smith-jersey ,” Zimmer said.Изображение

Bradford was placed on the IR on Nov. 8 after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to clean his left knee. He became eligible to practice before the Vikings’ Week 17 game, but didn’t until the following Tuesday. Since then, he’s participated in five practices.

”It’s kind of hard to get (Bradford) reps when you’re getting your starter ready Baker Mayfield Jersey Elite ,” Zimmer said. ”Forty reps in a practice, and he gets five and Bridgewater gets five.”

Bradford started in Week 1 against the Saints and passed for 346 yards, three touchdowns and a career high 143.0 passer rating Michael Gallup Color Rush Jersey , despite injuring his knee in the game.

Vikings cornerback Terence Newman (foot) was listed as questionable for Sunday. The veteran didn’t practice Thursday but was a limited participant on Friday.

The Arizona Cardinals have released running back Adrian Peterson after a half-season in the desert that included a pair of impressive games and a season-ending injury.

The seven-time All-Pro running back began last season with New Orleans but, after barely playing there, was dealt to the Cardinals.

Peterson rushed for 134 yards in a win over Tampa Bay and 159 in a win over San Francisco. In six games Josh Hader Milwaukee Brewers Jersey , he gained 448 yards on 129 carries for Arizona before being sidelined with a neck injury.

Peterson’s release was not unexpected, with David Johnson returning from injury and expected to fill the primary running back spot.

Peterson, who turns 33 next week Roquan Smith Color Rush Jersey , ranks 12th in the NFL in career rushing with 12,276 yards.

pparent. Giants have potential to be explosive offense if WR Odell Backham Jr. shows no lingering effects from broken ankle; couple him with tight end Evan Engram and WR Sterling Shepard. With former Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher taking over same role http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jihad-ward-jersey , how will he try to incorporate some 3-4 fronts. Giants don’t have fast linebackers, although they picked up Alec Ogletree from Rams.

AVAILABLE SALARY CAP SPACE (approximately): $24 million.


UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: LBs Nigel Bradham, Dannell Ellerbe and Najee Goode; RBs Darren Sproles, LeGarrette Blount and Kenjon Barner; TE Trey Burton; CB Patrick Robinson; DT Beau Allen; DE Bryan Braman; S Corey Graham; K Caleb Sturgis; OT Will Beatty.


NEEDS: Super Bowl champions will be thin at linebacker if Bradham leaves. Burton, Blount, Allen and Robinson are valuable contributors who would need to be replaced. Personnel boss Howie Roseman is quite creative and found way to add WRs Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith along with backup QB Nick Foles – Super Bowl MVP – even though team had little cap space entering free agency last year. Several veterans could be released to save money. Eagles might target running back and receiver along with linebacker, but probably won’t be major players in free agency. Most of their key players are returning and some recent draft picks are expected to fill holes.

AVAILABLE SALARY CAP SPACE (approximately): $9 million over.


UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: RB Carlos Hyde; Ss Eric Reid and Antone Exum, DE Aaron Lynch; DLs Chris Jones, Tank Carradine and Leger Douzable; LB Brock Coyle; G Brandon Fusco; CBs Leon Hall, Dontae Johnson, and Asa Jackson; WR Louis Murphy; TE Logan Paulsen; C Tim Barnes.


NEEDS: 49ers answered biggest question last month when they signed quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to $137.5 million contract after he led them to five straight wins following midseason trade with New England. Task this spring will be to get Garoppolo help and upgrade defense at cornerback and with possible pass rusher. San Francisco could use big target at either receiver or tight end to help in red zone, as well as improvement on interior of offensive line. Biggest question on offense comes at running back where San Francisco must decide whether to try to re-sign Hyde or look for someone else as lead back.

AVAILABLE SALARY CAP SPACE (approximately): $70 million.


UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: TEs Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson; Gs Luke Joeckel Tanner Lee Color Rush Jersey , Matt Tobin and Oday Aboushi; RB Eddie Lacy; DT Sheldon Richardson; Ss Bradley McDougald and DeShawn Shead; LBs Michael Wilhoite, Terence Garvin and Dewey McDonald; WR Paul Richardson; K Blair Walsh; DE Marcus Smith; CB Byron Maxwell; QB Austin Davis.

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: DE Dion Jordan; CB Justin Coleman; RBs Mike Davis and Thomas Rawls.

NEEDS: What Seahawks need in free agency largely depends on what they do with some high-priced players still under contract. Are moves made with Earl Thomas or Richard Sherman? What about Michael Bennett? Expect offensive and defensive lines to be focuses in free agency, along with more options at running back.

AVAILABLE SALARY CAP SPACE (approximately): $12 million.


UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: CBs Brent Grimes and Robert McClain; Ss T.J. Ward and Keith Tandy; C Evan Smith; QB Ryan Fitzpatrick; DTs Clinton McDonald and DT Sealver Siliga; LS Garrison Sanborn; DEs Justin Trattou and Will Clarke; Gs Adam Gettis and Kevin Pamphile; RB Charles Sims.

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: TE Cameron Brate; WR Adam Humphries; DE Ryan Russell; LB Adarius Glanton; CB Jude Adjei-Barimah.

NEEDS: After finishing last in league with 22 sacks, annual pursuit of help for anemic pass rush continues. Offensive line needs bolstering, too, and running back is priority following release of Doug Martin. With Brent Grimes becoming free agent, cornerback – or two – would be welcome addition to defense that was liability last season.

AVAILABLE SALARY CAP SPACE (approximately): $71.1 million


UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: QB Kirk Cousins; WRs Terrelle Pryor, WR Brian Quick and Ryan Grant; LBs Zach Brown, Will Compton, Junior Galette, Trent Murphy and Chris Carter; CB Bashaud Breeland; G Shawn Lauvao; S DeAngelo Hall; TE Niles Paul; K Dustin Hopkins; C Tony Bergstrom; DTs Arthur Jones and Phil Taylor.

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: T Ty Nsekhe; G Tyler Catalina.

NEEDS: With Cousins gone, new QB Alex Smith needs offensive targets Authentic John Tavares Jersey , especially speed at wide receiver to complement third-year WR Josh Doctson and possession guy Jamison Crowder. Allen Robinson would be perfect, if expensive fit, though top priority is still replacing contributions of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, who departed in free agency last spring. Running back must be addressed in free agency or draft. Trading CB Kendall Fuller to Kansas City in deal for Smith, expected departure of Breeland and lack of depth at safety make secondary area of concern. Left guard and linebacker could be crucial spots depending on statuses of Lauvao, Brown and Compton.

AVAILABLE SALARY CAP SPACE (approximately): $23.1 million.

The jerseys and venues will be the same, but so much has changed since the last time Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics met in the Eastern Conference finals.

Kyrie Irving was dealt to Boston in a blockbuster offseason deal for Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder. But following a roster upheaval in February , the Cavs were left with only five players from last year’s team that rolled past the Celtics 4-1 to earn a place in the NBA Finals.

Irving will watch this year’s rematch from the sideline after a pair of knee surgeries late in the regular season denied him an opportunity to play this postseason. It was the capstone of an injury-plagued year in Boston that also saw the seasons of Gordon Hayward and rookie Daniel Theis truncated.

The one constant has been Cleveland’s LeBron James, who at age 33 has again found another gear in the playoffs despite the different pieces surrounding him. His 34.3 scoring average in these playoffs is his highest since the 2009 postseason.

James can become the sixth player in league history to play in at least eight consecutive NBA Finals. The five others who have done so all played with the Celtics, led by Hall of Famer Bill Russell’s run of 10 straight appearances.

James hasn’t yet had a chance to reflect on his own run but says he isn’t taking anything for granted at this point in his career.

”You dream about being able to play in big games in the NBA and even when I got to the NBA that was one of my only goals to be as great as I can be, to play in big games in the NBA and be remembered and I think I’ve done that in my career,” he said. ”Just trying to add onto it while I can.”

The series starts Sunday in Boston. This is the eighth playoff matchup between the teams overall http://www.redskinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-da_ron-payne-jersey , with the Celtics leading 4-3.

The Celtics are seeking their first trip to the NBA Finals since 2010, when they got past James and the Cavs in the East semifinals.

Since Irving’s injury, Celtics coach Brad Stevens has relied heavily on veteran Al Horford and a youthful corps that includes 24-year-olds Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart, 21-year-old Jaylen Brown and 20-year-old rookie Jayson Tatum.

Horford is averaging career playoff-high 17 points per game, while carrying the leadership torch.

Rozier has flourished in a starting role since Irving was sidelined in mid-March. It’s carried over into the postseason where he is averaging 18.2 points per game. And Tatum is coming of a series against Philadelphia that saw him average 23.6 points per game – the second-highest by a Celtics rookie in franchise history.

”I feel like we more together (than last year),” Rozier said. ”Obviously guys been going down all year and it’s like you never know who’s going to down. But we found a way, we pulled together.”

As for Rozier’s prediction for the series?

”Stay tuned,” he said.

Some other things of note in the Eastern Conference finals:


Like James, Rozier first bounced a ball in Northeast Ohio.

Rozier is from Shaker Heights, Ohio, a suburb on Cleveland’s east side. He’s been on James’ hoops radar since he was a high school freshman. And while Rozier has been a breakout star in these playoffs to NBA fans, James knew he would eventually shine.

”He was a confident kid then when I watched him at Shaker. And he’s a confident player now Adam Boqvist Blackhawks Jersey , so I’m not surprised,” James said. ”He’s gotten better and better. It was a steal when they drafted him out of Louisville, and he’s just showcasing his abilities. … So, everybody is going crazy over what he’s doing but I’m not. He’s a local guy.”


Boston has become a preferred spring destination for James.

After a 2-9 start to his playoff career in New England, James has won his six straight postseason games on the road against the Celtics, a streak that began with his epic 45-point, 15-rebound performance in Game 6 for Miami in the 2012 conference finals. In those six wins, James averaged 34.3 points, 9.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists.

James has averaged 30.5 points, 8.8 rebounds and 6.1 assists while going 8-9 on Boston parquet’s hardwood.

Since losing two straight series with Cleveland to Boston in 2008 and 2010, James has eliminated the Celtics four times, going 8-1 in the past two matchups.


Indiana pushed Cleveland to seven games in the opening round. The Pacers were physical http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-d.j.-fluker-jersey , resilient and confident.

The Cavs feel the young Celtics might be a greater challenge.

”Boston is better than Indiana,” Cavs forward Kyle Korver said. ”With as much respect as we have for Indiana, obviously, they took us to seven, I think defensively Boston is elite. They’re really good. They’re always in the right spot. They have a great game plan.

”For sure the Indiana series has prepared us for the playoffs in a lot of ways. Now that we’re through that series, we’re glad.”

The countdown

#5 hongwei28 » 14.08.2018, 07:50

Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman earned accolades for making the boldest moves in improving Tampa Bay’s Stanley Cup aspirations at the NHL’s trade deadline in February.

Evander Kane Jordan Howard Jersey Youth , however, might have been the biggest beneficiary after being dealt by eventual last-place Buffalo to San Jose on Feb. 26. Kane couldn’t contain his glee on his Twitter account a week ago in posting a message which read : ”(hashtag)playoffmode it’s about time!”

It took him nine years and four cities – from Atlanta to Winnipeg, Buffalo and now San Jose – since being selected with the No. 4 pick by the then-Thrashers in the 2009 draft to finally prepare for his playoff debut. It will happen Thursday, when the Sharks open their Pacific Division first-round series at Anaheim.

”It makes it easy to come to the rink. It makes it easy to play with this group of guys,” Kane said. ”I’m having a lot of fun right now.”

The Sharks, who gave up a prospect and two conditional draft picks, including a potential first-rounder, might not be in this position without Kane. The 26-year-old picked up the offensive slack on a team that closed the season minus star Joe Thornton. Kane scored nine goals, including two game-winners, and added five assists in 17 games.

In closing the season at 12-7-1, the Sharks’ 25 points ranked in a tie for 10th among NHL teams since the trade deadline.

”He’s a crucial part of our team,” center Chris Tierney said of Kane. ”Just gives us an extra layer of everything.”

Kane wasn’t the only late-season addition to provide his new team a boost.

Yzerman added offense, defense and leadership to an already elite team by acquiring New York Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh and forward J.T. Miller in one of the final trades completed. Miller led all players traded on Feb. 26 by scoring 10 goals and piling up 18 points in 19 games.

”When you add two players like that and give up what they did, it’s you know: They’re in it to win it Eli Manning Jersey ,” former player and NBC hockey analyst Eddie Olczyk said of the Lightning.

Fellow analyst, Pierre McGuire looked to the moves made by Nashville.

The Predators gave up a first-round draft pick in adding size and versatility to acquire forward Ryan Hartman from Chicago. They welcomed back veteran Mike Fisher, who signed out of retirement. They also signed forward Eeli Tolvanen , after the rookie first-round pick’s Kontinental Hockey League season ended last month.

”You look at everything Nashville has done, they never messed with the roster integrity that was created at the beginning of the year by David Poile and Paul Fenton,” McGuire said, referring to Predators management. ”So I think Nashville quietly, whether it’s at the deadline or just before, did some amazing things.”

The Presidents’ Trophy-winning Predators (15-4-2), Winnipeg (15-4-1), Columbus (14-4-2) and Boston (13-5-4) led the NHL in points since Feb. 26.

Columbus jumped from 19th in the overall standings to 14th in a run that coincided with the additions of forward Thomas Vanek and defenseman Ian Cole.

Paul Stastny scored four goals and 13 points with playoff-bound Winnipeg, after being traded by St. Louis for a first-round pick. The Blues, by comparison, closed 10-7-2 and missed the playoffs with a season-ending loss to Colorado. And don’t forget Patrick Maroon Authentic Devin Hester Jersey , who had three goals and 10 points in 17 games for New Jersey, which acquired him from Edmonton.

The Capitals filled secondary defensive needs by adding Michal Kempny and Jakub Jerabek just before the trade deadline.

”We had holes to fill this year and we filled them with guys that aren’t as high-profile, but are just steady, and provided the things we needed for our team,” Capitals GM Brian MacLellan said.

After appearing in just 31 games in Chicago, Kempny played 22 in Washington while securing a role alongside Norris Trophy-candidate John Carlson.

In Philadelphia, goalie Petr Mrazek held the fort in going 6-6-4 in place of injured starter Brian Elliott. Elliott returned in time to win the final two games including a 17-save shutout in a season-ending, playoff-clinching 5-0 win over the Rangers.

Not all the trades paid off down the stretch.

Rick Nash missed Boston’s final 12 games with an upper body injury after being acquired in a trade with the Rangers.

Tomas Plekanec managed just two assists in 17 games with Toronto after being acquired from Montreal.

Tomas Tatar had four goals and six points in 20 games with Vegas, which landed him in a deal with Detroit.

More NHL hockey: 鈥?Nick Foles was steady, Jake Elliott had a big leg and the defense made one final stop.The underdog Philadelphia Eagles are heading to the NFC championship game following a 15-10 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday. They’ll host the Saints-Vikings winner next Sunday.Despite going 13-3 to earn the No. 1 seed, the Eagles entered the game as 3-point underdogs against the sixth-seeded Falcons (11-7). They used it as motivation and now it’s onto the next one as they continue pursuit of the franchise’s first Super Bowl title.“If we believe the outsiders, we will be all messed up,” Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox said. “We went out and proved we can be the real winning team.”Matt Ryan’s final pass sailed through Julio Jones’ arms in the corner of the end zone as Jalen Mills had tight coverage on fourth down from the 2 to secure Philadelphia’s win. It was another disappointing finish for the Falcons, who blew a 25-point lead against the Patriots in last year’s Super Bowl.“The reason I play this game is to win a championship,” Ryan said. “That’s why we put all of the hard work we put in. When you don’t get that result, it’s difficult.”Foles outplayed Ryan, bouncing back from a pair of subpar games with an efficient performance. He completed 77 percent of his passes (23 of 30) for 246 yards, no touchdowns and no turnovers.“The biggest thing in our locker room is that we believe in one another and that showed,” Foles said. “We kept working, kept grinding, had faith in one another. In any sport there’s going to be criticism. You’re aware of it because you’re human but we blocked it out.”Here’s some things we learned following Philadelphia’s first playoff win in nine years:OVERCOMING TURNOVERS: The Eagles committed the only two turnovers and won anyway. Jay Ajayi fumbled on the second play from scrimmage inside Falcons territory and a short punt bounced off an Eagles player setting up Atlanta’s 18-yard touchdown drive.INCONSISTENT OFFENSE: These weren’t the Falcons who lit up the scoreboard on their way to winning the NFC championship last year. Under first-year offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, the Falcons weren’t quite as sharp throughout the season and their inconsistency showed up at the wrong time. They were shut out in the second half and held to just 118 yards in the final two quarters.“I think that’s something we have to look at and evaluate this offseason Authentic Derick Brassard Jersey ,” Ryan said. “There were too many times we were a little bit inconsistent.”JAY TRAIN: Ajayi shook off the fumble and ran well until he inexplicably went to the bench for a long stretch. Ajayi had 50 yards rushing on eight carries through Philadelphia’s first drive of the second quarter, but didn’t get the ball again until the second half. He finished with 54 yards on 15 carries and also dropped a third down pass. He did have 44 yards receiving on three catches.“I feel like I played poorly,” Ajayi said. “The fumble, can’t do that in a big game. I feel like I could have executed a lot better. A lot of the teammates picked up the slack. The defense played lights out.”CALL OF THE GAME: Eagles coach Doug Pederson ran an inside counter to wide receiver Nelson Agholor that went for 21 yards to the Falcons 3 on third-and-3 on Philadelphia’s touchdown drive. It was the first time he called that play this season.“It’s a play we’ve had in our arsenal, but never got to it,” Pederson said. “This was just an opportunity to put it in Nelson’s hands with Lane Johnson as a puller and just executed extremely well.”JAKE’S LEG: Elliott, who joined the Eagles after Caleb Sturgis was injured in Week 1, bounced back after missing his fourth extra point of the season by connecting on all three of his field goals. His 53-yarder at the end of the first half was his sixth in seven tries from beyond 50. That includes a game-winning 61-yarder against the Giants in Week 3.“It was definitely tricky out there, just really gusty (wind),” Elliott said. “You don’t know what it’s really going to do out there so you just have to hit the best ball you can and take care of what you can control.”AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner contributed.AP NFL website: .

Barry Trotz thought of mentors and friends Jack Button Tarik Cohen Jersey Youth , Tommy Ebright, David Poile and Wayne Fleming when he lifted the Stanley Cup over his head.

The Washington coach didn’t think about his future, the same approach he has taken all season and playoffs.

”I wasn’t getting consumed with what was said, what my future holds, whatever,” Trotz said. ”I’m in a pretty good spot.”

Trotz was in as good a spot as imaginable Friday as he and the Capitals landed back home in the Washington area with the Stanley Cup in tow. The celebration will last through the parade Tuesday, but once that’s done, the work begins for Brian MacLellan to try to re-sign Trotz, top defenseman John Carlson and other free agents.

After not extending Trotz’s contract last summer, ownership and general manager Brian MacLellan now hope to keep him around. MacLellan said after winning the Cup that Trotz will be back if he wants to be.

Trotz and Carlson Myles Garrett Jersey Elite , who set a franchise record for playoff points by a defenseman, can be free agents July 1 along with unlikely postseason hero Devante Smith-Pelly, trade-deadline acquisition Michal Kempny and longtime glue guy Jay Beagle. Washington will have to do some salary-cap maneuvering to keep Carlson, Smith-Pelly and Kempny in the fold but can break the bank for Trotz.

The latest on Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions Saturday in Canton, Ohio, and Terrell Owens’ separate celebration in Chattanooga, Tennessee (all times local):

10:30 p.m.

With a passionate 33-minute speech in which he strolled around the stage, ad libbed, praised and joked, spoke of sacrifice Tony Romo Jersey Elite , love, glory and overcoming the odds, Ray Lewis entered the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

One of the best linebackers and leaders the game has seen, Lewis was the final man inducted of the seven class of 2018 members on hand. He was preceeded by Randy Moss, Brian Dawkins, Brian Urlacher, Jerry Kramer, Robert Brazile and Bobby Beathard.

Terrell Owens was not in Canton, Ohio, choosing instead to hold his own ceremony in Chattanooga Josh Gordon Jersey , Tennessee.

“Tell me something can’t be done is like pouring lighter fluid on an open flame,” said Lewis, a two-time Defensive Player of the Year who won a second Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens for the 2012 season — coming back from a torn triceps — then retired. He was the MVP of the 2001 title game.

“I came back, and boy did I come back,” Lewis said. “When you walk off the last time with that thing, that Lombardi, it’s a confirmation I am living proof of the impossible.”

A first-year nominee, Lewis was selected 26th overall in the 1996 draft — what were other teams thinking? He wasn’t even Baltimore first choice: Jonathan Ogden was, and the big tackle made the Hall of Fame in 2013.

His impact was immediate, both on the field Cole Beasley Jersey Womens , in the locker room, and even in pregame introductions, when his “squirrel dance” fired up fans and teammates alike. He and Ogden even did a short version on the stage.

Lewis was the first player with 40 sacks and 30 interceptions in a career. An eight-time All-Pro and inside linebacker on the 2000s NFL All-Decade Team, he had a franchise-record 2,643 career tackles.

Bradley Chubb would normally be content

#6 liny195 » 05.12.2018, 12:50

relying on game tapes to make his case to scouts.

There Ondrej Kase Jersey , he insists, they will find a big man with edge-rushing skills and enough power to stuff the run. Watch enough of footage and it just might convince those NFL executives that Chubb is the best defensive player in this year’s NFL draft.

But this is no typical week for North Carolina State’s star defensive end. He’s participating in the NFL’s annual scouting combine in Indianapolis, answering questions and dropping names.

”I try to take Khalil Mack and Von Miller and put them into one person,” Chubb said Saturday. ”I’m a high-motor, high-energy guy.”

If team executives concur, his name could be one of the first three called in April.

Naturally, Chubb describes himself as the best player in Indy this weekend and who’s going to argue with a 6-foot-4, 269-pound man.

Not the deep, diverse quarterback group, which did its on-the-field workouts Saturday and will likely spend the next few years trying to escape Chubb’s grasp.

Not the highly touted running back class, which includes Saquon Barkley and Chubb’s own cousin, Nick, who will be running away from a lineman who posted 25 sacks and 54 tackles for loss over the past three seasons.

Sure, there are questions.

Is he big enough to hold up against the NFL’s massive tackles, does he have enough moves to make an immediate impact, can he make a smooth transition to the more physical pro game?

He might also be asked to explain why he spat upon the Florida State logo following North Carolina State’s upset win or why he decided to skip the Wolfpack’s bowl game.

Those who know Chubb best have no doubt he will succeed.

”He’s so happy, always smiling,” said offensive tackle Will Richardson Rickard Rakell Jersey , a college teammate who routinely squared off with Chubb in practice.

”He’s a goofball. We used to get grapes after a game and he would come over and knock them out of your hands and someone would be like `Why did you do that?’ But he always had a few extra grapes in his other hand to give to you. He’s definitely a goofball, a goofball in a good way.”

Many believe there’s nothing goofy about him being possibly the best pass-rusher in a draft heavy on interior linemen – and thin at one of the NFL’s most coveted positions.

Those challenging Chubb’s title include Marcus Davenport of UTSA, Sam Hubbard of Ohio State, Arden Key of LSU and Harold Landry of Boston College.

Each had college careers that ranged from solid to spectacular, and each knows they must answer questions about size, injuries or the competition level they’ve faced.

”Nobody in this draft class has a first step like mine,” Landry said. ”My mindset and my approach to the game, I’m a guy that’s going to do whatever it takes to be the best at my position.”

But those who played alongside Chubb understand his impact cannot be measured in stats alone.

”We got to win more games,” college teammate and combine invitee Justin Jones said. ”Having a guy like Bradley Chubb on the edge, it turns a lot of plays back to us and the rest of the team. They want to take Bradley out of the game, and we have other (defensive) linemen that can make plays.”

Chubb appears to have the size to play right away, room to grow and even bloodlines working in his favor.

His father, Aaron, played at Georgia. His older brother, Brandon, starred at Wake Forest before being signed by the Los Angeles Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2016 and spending most of that season on the Detroit Lions‘ practice squad.

So if things fall the right way, Bradley Chubb could become the highest-drafted descendant of the family that established ”Chubbtown” – a rural area in northwestern Georgia, three miles from the Alabama border- in the mid-1800s.

And that’s an honor Chubb would treasure.

”When you’re there Marquis Haynes Jersey , you feel it,” he said. ”My last name is Chubb, and I wear it with pride.”

First baseman Andrew Vaughn has won USA Baseball’s Golden Spikes Award as the top amateur baseball player, the first University of California player to earn the honor.

Vaughn earned the 2018 Pac-12 Player of the Year award, hitting .402 in his sophomore season with 14 doubles, a school-recording tying 23 homers and 63 RBIs.

He is the eighth player from the conference to win the award after Bob Horner (1978), Terry Francona (1980), Oddibe McDowell (1984), Mike Kelly (1991), Mark Prior (2001), Tim Lincecum (2006) and Trevor Bauer (2011).

The other finalists for the award, announced Thursday, were Texas infielder Kody Clemens, Auburn right-hander Casey Mize and Florida right-hander Brady Singer.

About 200 people cast ballots among national baseball media, select professional baseball personnel, previous winners and select USA Baseball staff. Those votes counted for 95 percent of the total, with fan balloting accounting for the remainder.

49ers secondary has two question marks heading into Week 2 vs.

#7 liny195 » 10.12.2018, 08:53

Chiefs The San Francisco 49ers travel to face the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3 San Francisco 49ers Hoodie , and their secondary has question marks at precisely the wrong time. Jaquiski Tartt is day-to-day after suffering a shoulder stinger on Sunday, and head coach Kyle Shanahan would not yet commit to who would start at cornerback opposite Richard Sherman.The team will know more about Tartt later this week, but Shanahan said on Monday that if he can’t go, Jimmie Ward could end up as an option next to Adrian Colbert. Jimmie Ward is a backup at all of the defensive back positions. Antone Exum came on in place of Tartt for the final few snaps, but Ward was not available because he had replaced Ahkello Witherspoon in the fourth quarter against the Lions. With Witherspoon’s status for Sunday up in the air, it seems a decent possibility that Ward would start in his place, and if Tartt cannot play, Exum would start at strong safety. There is one particularly good option on the open market, but the team seems fine sticking with what they’ve got.With questions at strong safety and cornerback, the 49ers have to prepare for the Chiefs’ prolific passing attack. Patrick Mahomes is off to one of the best two-game starts in NFL history Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys , and he’s benefiting from Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce off to strong starts. The Chiefs passing attack could not be clicking at a higher rate right now, and the 49ers have a whole lot of work to do.49ers fantasy football pick-ups, drops for Week 6 We’ve officially entered a dark void for fantasy football with the 49ers. Most of the value players are snapped up. The players that did have value are now useless due to the offense we have. If you have anyone not named George Kittle or Matt Breida, you have a mess on your hands. Let’s help you out here. But just know we’re not bringing only 49ers players this time around. As always, percentage owned numbers are based on Yahoo! leagues.Pick-upsPackers D/STWeek 5 stats: 31 PA, 3 sacksThe 49ers offense isn’t getting any better and if you’re desperate for a streaming defensive option, there are worse teams than the Packers. The Lions managed to hang 31 points on them last week, which isn’t the most comforting of things. That said, there’s really no way you don’t look into this as an option. The 49ers stink on offense and it opens up a chance for pick sixes and sacks thanks to C.J. Beathard’s love of holding onto the ball. The 49ers are on a skid, they are in Lambeau www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com , and that’s really all we need to have confidence in picking this defense up. We feel so dirty.Pick up or don’t pick up: Pick them up. Must-Start Status AlertGeorge Kittle% Owned: 93Week 5 stats: 5 receptions, 83 yardsIf you’re in a PPR league you are loving these numbers. Even when he has a bad day, Kittle is getting you some yardage and at least contributing. If you’re in a standard league, you’re probably wondering what the deal is. Our advice: stick by him. Who else is Beathard going to throw to? Who else can catch it? It’s not like Kittle is an elite pass catcher with his drops, but he’s a helluva lot better than the other options on the field.Pick up or don’t pick up: You know what to do...Fool’s goldAll of the 49ers wide receivers% Owned: Seriously?The time has come to begin evaluating the 49ers pass catchers. If you find yourself on waivers and looking at other, more productive wide receivers (and depending on how deep your league is they may be all gone at this point), the 49ers wide receivers should be the first to go. They aren’t reliable and you can’t count on them for touchdowns when Matt Breida and George Kittle are getting the lion’s share of redzone targets/runs. If one emerges from this slop, we’ll be first to say foot in our mouth, but they’ve ridden your bench long enough. Even if someone breaks out there’s no telling they can continue to do it where it’s relevant to keep them on your bench. Drop or don’t drop: Don’t do it outright, but if you have decisions to make San Francisco 49ers T-Shirt , they can be the first to go. Robbie Gould% Owned: 62Week 5 Stats: One field goal missedGould, WTH?! The 49ers kicker had a very bad day, a very un-Gould-like day. Gould missed his lone field goal attempt. The extra point attempt at the end of the 49ers first drive (you know, the good one) doesn’t go down as an attempt since he never actually tried kicking it. He just stopped for some reason. It might have been the Cardinals player who was flying in. It has not been a good season for kickers in general. They are missing everything. It’s like some sort of bug going around. In any case, Gould has been money outside of this blunder. He gets another week before decisions have to be made. In fact, it may be a good move to pick him up given his availability. The 49ers might be kicking a lot on Monday. Drop or don’t drop: Don’t drop.

Lynch: Jimmy Garoppolo’s surgery went well
http://www.49erscheapstore.com/laken-tomlinson-jersey-cheap , surgeon optimistic San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had surgery on his torn ACL Wednesday morning, and it sounds like everything went well — or, as well as one can expect given the situation.Fooch’s update: Kyle Shanahan said on Friday morning (on KNBR) that it was as good as could be expected, and the rehab should be a straight forward ACL rehab.On Wednesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the surgery was happening that day and they would know more once it was complete. On Thursday evening, general manager John Lynch had an update for KNBR. Lynch talked to the surgeon and got a positive report about the surgery.The big thing to take from the surgery is that it appears to have been strictly an ACL tear. He could have torn one of the other ligaments (MCL, PCL, LCL) or his meniscus, thus complicating the rehab process. The other ligaments impact stability, and so knowing that he apparently does not have anything else but the ACL Cheap Mike McGlinchey Jersey , it simplifies the rehab process. Lynch did not specifically say there were not other issues, so this is an inference based on his comments and reports since the injury.This successful surgery with no apparent complications improves his chances of being ready at the start of or early into training camp. Barring any unexpected setbacks, it would seem safe to assume he would be good to go for Week 1 of the regular season.No two injuries are the same, but we can potentially compare him to Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. The Eagles QB suffered a torn ACL on December 11, 2017, but surgery also revealed a torn LCL. Wentz was cleared for full team activities on August 19, 2018, and made his return to game action in Week 3 (September 23). Garoppolo’s injury happened on September 23, so if the rehab process goes well, this bodes well for getting Jimmy Garoppolo back on the field in time for Week 1 next season. When it comes to stopping opposing offenses from moving the ball http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/joe-staley-jersey , the San Francisco 49ers defense has fared all right early this season.When it comes to generating the game-changing takeaways that so often determine who wins in the NFL, no team has been worse so far.There are many reasons why the 49ers are off to such a disappointing start with one win through five games, with the season-ending knee injury to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo the most notable.But a defense that has generated a league-low three takeaways for the fewest total for the franchise after five games since 1977 is a major reason why."We just have to find a way, that's all it comes down to," cornerback Richard Sherman said. "Takeaways are kind of more of a ball bounces your way, you get tips sometimes. Last week, we limited them pretty good. We have to be more violent in tackling and can't miss when the quarterback throws into coverage."Turnovers often come because of the pass rush and the 49ers have struggled there with no consistent edge rusher. They rank in the bottom half of the league in both sacks and quarterback pressures despite allowing the ninth fewest yards per play at 5.31.The only takeaways so far this season have come when Sherman recovered a fumble in the opener at Minnesota, Cassius Marsh recovered one after a strip sack by Elijah Lee against Detroit in Week 2 and Antone Exum had a pick-six on the third play from scrimmage two weeks ago against the Chargers.The team has generated no turnovers in the 113 plays on defense since then."We've had our opportunities this year," defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said. "There's an old cliche saying that, 'Catch the ones that are thrown to you.' We've had our opportunities Cheap Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey , especially early in the year where I think we've dropped about three or four interceptions this year. We've gotten the ball out. We're taking shots at the ball. There's great intent. Takeaways come in bunches, they do. ... I know it's a result-oriented business, but the result is a product of the process that you go through within every play, within every day. If we keep attacking the ball the way we have and the D-Line keeps pressing the pocket and getting after the quarterback, I'm very confident that eventually they'll come."Trying too hard for turnovers can back fire, however. On the first play of a loss to Arizona last week, free safety Adrian Colbert jumped up in coverage anticipating a throw over the middle to Larry Fitzgerald.Instead, Cardinals rookie Josh Rosen targeted Christian Kirk deep and the play turned into a 75-yard touchdown because cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon didn't have the deep help he expected from Colbert on the play.The Cardinals gained just 145 yards the rest of the game but it proved to be enough in a 28-18 victory, especially because the defense provided no short fields for the offense, which began each of its 13 drives inside San Francisco's 40-yard line."When people feel like they need to do more than what they're being asked to do http://www.49erscheapstore.com/pierre-garcon-jersey-cheap , that's when bad things actually happen," Saleh said. "Right now, that first play, and A.C. will tell you, he'd love to have that play back, but the way they responded after that play and the way they came out and played and executed the defense all the way through, I thought was really good on their part to remain composed and to continue to fight all the way through the game."

Richard Sherman says calf injury is a couple weeks issue
The San Francisco 49ers will likely be without cornerback Richard Sherman on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , but anything after that is up in the air. Sherman met with the media on Thursday and said, “I strained my calf in the game. It’s much as if you strain anything else. It’s a couple weeks and I’ll be back out there.” He said he will probably be missing this weekend, but did not think missing anything beyond that was a certainty yet.The media inquired about whether or not the injury is related to his Achilles injury. Sherman said it is not relate to that, but the rust of not playing for the past eight months.The 49ers will be sending out Jimmie Ward and Ahkello Witherspoon on Sunday against a wide receiver corps that includes Keenan Allen http://www.49erscheapstore.com/pierre-garcon-jersey-cheap , Tyrell Williams, Mike Williams, and Travis Benjamin. These guys are no slouches getting down the field by any stretch, but this is more about size than speed compared to last week against the Kansas City Chiefs. The 49ers have gone for more physical cornerbacks http://www.49erscheapstore.com/earl-mitchell-jersey-cheap , and Sunday will present a different kind of challenge from last week, but still critically important. Nick Mullens will make his NFL debut as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers against the Oakland Raiders.The 49ers said Mullens will start Thursday night against Oakland after C.J. Beathard injured his right wrist last week. Beathard was unable to do much all week in practice, but will serve as the backup for the game against the Raiders.Mullens joined the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Mississippi last year. He spent all of 2017 on the practice squad and then got called up to the active roster in September when starter Jimmy Garoppolo went down with a season-ending knee injury.Mullens has not taken an NFL snap and has worked mostly with the scout team in practice before this week.The players who are inactive for San Francisco are safeties Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) and Antone Exum (concussion); linebacker Reuben Foster (hamstring); offensive linemen Erik Magnuson and Shon Coleman; receiver Trent Taylor and defensive tackle Jullian Taylor.The Raiders will have left guard Kelechi Osemele after he missed three games with a knee injury. The inactive players for Oakland are cornerback Rashaan Melvin; linebackers James Cowser and Shilique Calhoun; offensive linemen T.J. Clemmings (knee), Justin Murray and Denver Kirkland; and receiver Marcell Ateman.The Niners also made several roster moves before the game. They activated safety Marcell Harris and linebacker Dekoda Watson from injured reserve to fill open spots on the active roster. They also promoted cornerback Emmanuel Moseley from the practice squad and waived quarterback Tom Savage.San Francisco also signed receiver Victor Bolden Jr. and defensive back Greg Mabin to the practice squad and released receiver Aaron Burbridge from the practice squad.

After coming up just short in their first two games
Color Rush Riley Dixon Jersey , the New York Giants figured out a way to finish a game on Sunday against the Houston Texans and get their first win."We've become an almost team," quarterback Eli Manning said. "We've been close on a few things and (Sunday) we put it together."Manning threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns and rookie Saquon Barkley added a score as the Giants (1-2) got a 27-22 victory over the struggling Houston Texans.New York had lost its first two games by 12 points combined before building a 20-6 lead by halftime and adding a touchdown late on Sunday to outlast the winless Texans."This was just a different ride," Barkley said. "Coach challenged us to come out with a great start and that's something we really focused on. Obviously, we've got to play a little better in the second half. But it's the NFL, and they're not just going to let you run up the score on them."The Giants got another good game from Barkley, who was the second overall pick in this year's draft. The Texans led 3-0 after a 23-yard field goal by Ka'imi Fairbairn on their first drive. The Giants took their first lead this season when Barkley shed multiple tackles on a 15-yard run that made it 7-3.Barkley has 46 carries for 216 yards and two touchdowns and 21 catches for 137 yards this season. His presence has given the Giants another explosive playmaker to pair with star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.The Giants were certainly happy to get in the win column on Sunday Color Rush Landon Collins Jersey , but know they have a lot of work to do if they hope to have a successful season."We can't get too far ahead of ourselves because it's just one game," Beckham said. "Now we have to start tacking it on, build off this and keep improving."Some things to know about New York's win over Houston.RUNNING GAME WOESAfter leading the NFL in yards rushing through the first three games, the Texans couldn't get anything going on the ground. They finished with 59 yards rushing, and Lamar Miller managed just 10 yards on as many carries."They loaded up the box," coach Bill O'Brien said. "They did a good job. We tried a bunch of different schemes — basically abandoned it in the second half ... tried to do other things. Just never could get it going."MISUNDERSTANDING?Giants receiver Sterling Shepard received a taunting penalty in the second quarter after jawing with Houston cornerback Aaron Colvin. But Shepard insists it wasn't malicious and that he and Colvin are friends and were simply messing with each other."That's one of my boys from college Youth Sterling Shepard Jersey ," Shepard said. "We go way back. He was at my wedding, I was at his wedding. We had been talking a little mess before the game ... we were just going back and forth. It was all in love, but the officials don't know that."The two played in college together at Oklahoma.STRONG CONNECTIONHouston receiver Will Fuller had five receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown. He's played in six career games with Watson and has nine touchdowns in those games. He's had at least one TD grab in each game he's played with Watson.He had 113 yards and a score last week to make him the first Texan to have consecutive 100-yard receiving games since he did it in the first two weeks of the 2016 season.INJURY UPDATENew York tight end Evan Engram (knee) left in the second quarter. ... Giants CB Antonio Hamilton injured his groin in the first quarter and didn't return. ... Houston WR Bruce Ellington injured his hamstring in the first quarter and didn't return. ... Texans G Senio Kelemete (knee) left in the second quarter. The concussion that we previously knew would keep wide receiver/kick returner Jawill Davis out of Monday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons has forced the New York Giants into a roster move. Needing a return man, the Giants are waiving rookie tight end Garrett Dickerson and signing Quadree Henderson from their practice squad.Henderson, a rookie undrafted free agent, was a dangerous return man collegiately for Pitt. Henderson averaged 26.6 yards with four TDs on 73 kickoff returns and 13.4 yards with three touchdowns on 37 punt returns in college. The 5-foot-8 Alec Ogletree Jersey , 190-pounder can also play wide receiver.“He was a really fine returner in college and we brought him here with the idea that he might return for us at some point,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “He’s also done a good job picking up the receiver stuff.”Davis, a rookie undrafted free agent, has averaged 24.4 yards on seven kickoff returns. He has also caught two passes.Special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey was complementary of Davis’ progress Friday — before the news of his being placed in the concussion protocol was known.“He’s a young player. He’s getting better every week. He is definitely ascending. The arrow is up with that kid,” McGaughey said. “He averaged 29 yards a return last time he was out there. The week before, it was 21. So each week 4Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , you’re seeing some progression with him. He’s getting more confident as a gunner. The kid is talented. We’re just going to keep nurturing talent.”Dickerson has played in two games for the Giants. He started the season on the practice squad before being promoted to the 53-man roster. Should he clear waivers, Dickerson will likely end up back on the practice squad.The Giants are thin at receiver, having placed Cody Latimer and Davis on IR, and with Russell Shepard [neck] questionable. They added veteran Bennie Fowler this week to replace Latimer.

Instant analysis: This is what 2018 Giants football was supposed to look like
If the New York Giants were going to have any realistic chance of having a successful 2018 season they had to have a victory Sunday against the Houston Texans. They got that desperately-needed victory by a 27-22 score http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-curtis-riley-jersey , and it wasn’t an accident.For the first time this season, Giants’ football looked the way new coach Pat Shurmur and Co. hoped it would.The Giants were efficient and explosive on offense, especially in the first half. They were opportunistic, especially in the second half, on defense. They didn’t hurt themselves on special teams.Sunday began with the news that Ereck Flowers was no longer a member of the Giants’ starting offensive line. It ended with the first victory of the Pat Shurmur era. And renewed optimism that the Giants, underdogs on Sunday and facing the potential of a disastrous 0-3 start, could do good things in 2018.The Giants once again failed to reach the 30-point plateau, a mark they haven’t hit since the final game of the 2015 season when Tom Coughlin’s career with the team was ending. Still, when J.J. Watt wasn’t wrecking their plans, they showed the variety of weapons that could make their offense special.The Giants scored the first four times they had the ball, with a pair of touchdowns and a pair of Aldrick Rosas field goals. Saquon Barkley, again showing that he is virtually impossible for the first defender to tackle, took advantage of the best run-blocking the Giants have given him this season. Barkley had a 15-yard scoring run, a 24-yard run, and ended up with 17 carries for 82 yards.When it was winning time in the fourth quarter, nursing a 20-15 lead and needing a drive, it was Barkley the Giants leaned on. On a 9-play, 77-yard drive that ended up giving them a commanding 27-15 lead with 5:29 remaining Barkley carried the ball three times and caught two passes for 27 yards, including a 21-yard catch when he lined up as a wide receiver.“We found a way to finish the game. We started with a nice play to Shep, then we ran the ball a little bit. We found a way to complete some passes, and then obviously at the end, score there,” Shurmur said.Eli Manning was an incredibly efficient 25-of-29 for 297 yards, two touchdowns and a passer rating of 132.3. He was sacked four times, three by Watt, but generally had time to set his feet and step into his throws. Shurmur also moved him left and right, creating some easy throws. Manning was as good as he’s been in a long, long time.Manning took advantage of mismatches all day Rhett Ellison Jersey , just like the Giants hoped he would be able to do if they could block well enough to give him a chance.“That’s how I see playing offense. You deal up a progression. Dial it up and then the ball goes where it’s supposed to go. If it gets out on time, we really trust all of our players out there,” Shurmur said. “The last touchdown was designed really to go to Odell (Beckham Jr.) isolated. They doubled him, so Eli went back and threw the ball to Shep (Sterling Shepard). That’s just the way this thing works, and it was good.”Manning was told after the game that he seemed more comfortable in the pocket than he had been the first two weeks.“I thought we did a good job having a good plan to get the ball out. The ball was coming out fast, could see what they were doing. The offensive line was blocking, doing what they were doing, they were blocking things up and we didn’t have the mistakes,” Manning said. “I thought we kind of condensed the offense a little bit and made sure guys knew what they were doing. Plays that they knew, they were playing fast, the offensive line was playing fast and we have good players, just let them go play. Let’s not try to be perfect and trick or do too much. Let our guys go win, because we got good athletes.”Relying heavily on various crossing routes, Manning completed 9-of-10 passes directed at Odell Beckham Jr. for 109 yards. When the Texans jumped Beckham and left single coverage elsewhere, the Giants took advantage of that. Sterling Shepard caught six passes for 80 yards, Rhett Ellison three for 39 and a touchdown, Barkley five for 35, Evan Engram one for 19 before being hurt and Cody Latimer one for 15.Defensively, as the game rolled into the latter stages and it looked like momentum was shifting to the Texans, the defense came up with a pair of critical takeaways to keep Houston at bay.Late in the third quarter, Kerry Wynn knocked a ball away from Lamar Miller and Donte Deayon recovered at the Giants’ 25-yard line. Houston’s next possession reached the Giants’ 8-yard line, but a penalty, sack and outstanding athletic interception by Alec Ogletree in the end zone ended that opportunity.Wynn was terrific. Damon Harrison dominated the middle. B.J. Hill and Lorenzo Carter got their first sacks. The Giants did enough in the secondary. They survived a game without Olivier Vernon and Eli Apple.Can the Giants build on this?That’s a really good question.Shurmur said his first victory as Giants’ coach “feels special because we’re making progress.”Will they, however, sustain it and make it meaningful?The Giants return home next week to face the New Orleans Saints, 2-1 after a 43-37 overtime victory Sunday over the Atlanta Falcons. That won’t be an easy game against Drew Brees and Co., a team with a terrific offense but a defense that can be taken advantage of.The Giants showed us Sunday what they can be. What they will be remains to be seen. “This is what we were itching for, itching for a win. Guys had a great week of preparation Cheap Landon Collins Jersey , so it shows us how we should prepare, and if we want to keep this feeling then that’s what we have to keep on doing,” Shepard said. “Everybody was freaking out about the two games but we remained calm as a team.”Beckham was well aware that one victory does not mean all is well in the Giants’ world.“We have to get some more wins and start putting them together,” he said. “We can’t get too far ahead of ourselves, because it’s just one game. Now we have to start tacking it on, build off this today and keep improving.”What they managed to do Sunday, though, is to get a reprieve and make things interesting going forward. Marquette King has not lived up to the lofty expectations the Denver Broncos had of the athletic punter working at altitude, so now he's got some competition.The Broncos signed rookie punter Colby Wadman from UC Davis to their practice squad in hopes of snapping King out of his funk."Well, we've had him here in the mandatory minicamp, he's been with Tom (McMahon, the Broncos' special teams coordinator), and we have to get better there," coach Vance Joseph said Wednesday. "So, we're looking forward to Marquette having a good week of punting."It's a performance-based business, so we're trying to get better there."King averaged just a 39.3-yard net on seven punts in Denver's 27-14 loss at Baltimore, where he failed three times to flip the field with booming punts that were his hallmark before his release from the Oakland Raiders in the offseason.King hasn't had the hang time the Broncos expected of him, something that will be imperative to improve on Monday night against the Kansas City Chiefs."You want to hang the ball with Tyreek Hill," Joseph said. "That's going to be the key with this guy. He's a dangerous returner. He doesn't fair-catch the football. But I think hanging the ball high is going to be one of the keys to containing him. But again, it's going to take our entire coverage team and we have to do a good job of keeping him from hurting us with punt returns."King signed a three-year, $7 million deal with the Broncos after Raiders coach Jon Gruden cut him in March. Afterward, the Broncos traded Riley Dixon, who averaged 45.7 yards in his two seasons in Denver with a net of 40.8 yards, to the New York Giants.King ranks 22nd in the league with a 44.6-yard average and is 14th with a 41.6-yard net."He has to simply punt better," Joseph said earlier in the week. "No different than our corners have to play better in coverage, and we've got to block better. He's a football player and he's got to do his job. He's got to punt better."

New York Giants roster moves: 6 players — yes
Womens Riley Dixon Jersey , 6 — claimed on waivers NFL teams had until noon Sunday to place waiver claims on eligible players who were cut by their teams on Saturday. The New York Giants have the No. 2 priority on the waiver list, behind only the Cleveland Browns. GM Dave Gettleman had promised that the Giants would work the waiver wire to try and improve. Apparently, he meant what he said. Per Albert Breer, the Giants were VERY busy, claiming six players.The Giants made the moves official late Sunday afternoon. To make room for the six new players, the Giants waived quarterback Davis Webb [full story], wide receiver/kick returner Hunter Sharp, defensive tackle Josh Banks and tight end Jerell Adams.Here is what we know about the six new Giants.DE Mario EdwardsMario Edwards was a 2015 second-round pick by the Raiders. He played in 30 games with 24 starts over four seasons, accumulating 5.5 sacks and 53 tackles. Edwards is 6-foot-3, 280 pounds.Kaelin Clay with the Carolina Panthers.Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY SportsWR/KR Kaelin Clay A sixth-round pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2015, the 5-10, 195-pound Clay has played in regular-season games for the Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills and Carolina Panthers. He has only 6 career receptions.Clay is primarily a return man. He has averaged 9.4 yards on 42 career punt returns, and 23.2 yards on 17 kickoff returns. DB Antonio HamiltonA 6-foot, 190-pound cornerback who played in 12 games the past two seasons for the Oakland Raiders. He initially made the Oakland roster an an undrafted free agent after playing at South Carolina State.CB Michael JordanA 6-foot-1, 200-pound cornerback, he played in five games for the Rams in 2016 and 15 games for the Cleveland Browns last season. He has made a total of three NFL starts.DB Kamrin MooreA 5-11, 200-pound rookie, Moore was a sixth-round pick by the New Orleans Saints. C Spencer Pulley This is likely bad news for either veteran John Greco or rookie Evan Brown. Pulley, 25, started all 16 games for the Los Angeles Chargers a season ago. As a rookie, Pulley split time between center and both guard spots. Perhaps he will eventually challenge Jon Halapio for the starting role.The current 53-man rosterOffense (25)QB (3): Kyle Lauletta (R), Eli Manning, Alex TanneyRB (4+1): RB (4+1): Saquon Barkley (R), Wayne Gallman Authentic Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , Robert Martin (R), Jonathan Stewart, Shane Smith (FB)WR: (5): Odell Beckham, Jr., Kailin Clay, Cody Latimer, Russell Shepard, Sterling ShepardTE (3): Rhett Ellison, Evan Engram, Scott SimonsonC/G (6): Evan Brown (R), John Greco, Jon Halapio, Will Hernandez (R), Patrick Omameh, Spencer PulleyT (3): Ereck Flowers, Nate Solder, Chad WheelerDefense (25)DL (5): Mario Edwards Jr, Damon Harrison, B.J.

Gotta ride the hot hand
http://www.authenticstampabaybuccaneers.com/cheap-donovan-smith-jersey , right? Fitzmagic is sweeping the nation and it will be on full display in the Buccaneers’ lone prime time game (as it stands now) of 2018. With a desperate Pittsburgh Steelers team coming to town, Ryan Fitzpatrick has to maintain this level of blazing hotness in order to move the Bucs to 3-0.The Steelers are the Steelers for a reason. They overcome adversity and are constant and consistent championship contenders. With all the drama surrounding Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown, the Steelers’ backs are against the wall unlike any time in recent memory. A loss to the Bucs on Monday night may put an early nail in their postseason coffin. It’s going to be on Fitz to continue to perform at a level of which we have never witnessed from him before. The Steelers enter the game with the 14th ranked passing defense, despite being shredded by Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes last week for six touchdowns. Ryan Fitzpatrick is entering the game as the NFL’s number one quarterback with 819 yards and eight touchdowns - nine if you include the rushing touchdown he has.The Buccaneers are also home of the number one receiver in DeSean Jackson, number nine receiver Mike Evans, and number three tight end O.J. Howard.The Steelers are ranked 30th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed, so the running game might really get going which is why Peyton Barber is an honorable mention as far as X-Factors are concerned. The Steelers and Bucs are ranked fifth and sixth respectively in points allowed, so we may be in for yet another shoot out, playing into the hands of Fitz and Ben Roethlisberger. Just because the Steelers are reeling right now is no reason to discount the fact that they still have the best receiver in the league in Brown or his partner in crime JuJu Smith-Schuster. Both guys will be going up against a young secondary that is currently allowing the second most passing yards in the NFL. Now this isn’t to bash the defense. The defense has made key stops in key moments this season and appears to be vastly improved from last season. That also doesn’t mean they aren’t giving up loads of yards in the passing game. It’s that “bend don’t break” we’ve all become accustomed to.One thing to note is that the Bucs are currently sitting at a +2 in turnover differential while the Steelers are -4. Again, that falls on Fitzpatrick’s ability to protect the football and make the smart decisions while Roethlisberger is more willing to take chances. Even Fitz’s one interception this season wasn’t his fault, it was squarely on the shoulders of O.J. Howard.The Bucs are going to ride the hot hand and none is hotter than the right hand of Ryan Fitzpatrick. If the Buccaneers are going to finish off the most improbable three game start in recent memory - for them or any team given the fact that no one gave them a chance to even win one of these games - it’s going to take another magical performance from number fourteen. Doug Pederson summed up a hot, frustrating day for the Philadelphia Eagles."A lot of self-inflicted wounds," the coach said Sunday after the reigning Super Bowl champions stumbled to a slow start in the blistering Florida sun and never fully recovered in a 27-21 loss to the surprising Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Game-time temperature was 91 degrees, with a heat index of 105.A usually reliable defense gave up a 75-yard TD reception to ex-Eagle DeSean Jackson on the first play of the game and another 75-yarder to O.J. Howard before halftime. But Philadelphia's sputtering offense was partly to blame for the loss Youth Lavonte David Jersey , too.In addition to losing a pair fumbles and being stopped on downs twice, the Eagles hurt themselves with ill-timed penalties. That kept an injury-depleted offense missing some its top playmakers from getting into a rhythm early."Anytime you are down a couple of guys, it affects you offensively. ... The thing was, we kept going backward in the whole first half. Either from penalties or lost yardage on first down, we were playing from behind a lot," Pederson said. "The injuries hurt, but again, it's self-inflicted."The Eagles (1-1) won their season opener over Atlanta with Nick Foles throwing for just 117 yards. The Super Bowl MVP was 35 of 48 for 334 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions against the Bucs.But by the time the Eagles started to move the ball with some consistency, Philadelphia trailed 27-7."I think the big thing is we can't shoot ourselves in the foot with penalties," Foles said."Looking back, we'll look at the film and grow, but I think the thing I will take from this game is how hard our team fought," Foles added. "Tampa Bay played a tremendous game. ... We never once turned on one another Peyton Barber Jersey , we never put our heads down, we kept our heads up, we kept fighting."Two of Philadelphia's best playmakers Alshon Jeffery and Darren Sproles were inactive. Running back Jay Ajayi, receiver Mike Wallace and left tackle Jason Peters were lost for portions of the game after being injured in the first half Sunday.Ajayi returned to score a third quarter TD, and tight end Zach Ertz had 11 receptions for 94 yards."Guys step up all the time, and that's what we did," Foles said. "We gave ourselves an opportunity to win this game. Obviously, we want everyone healthy, but that's not really the case sometimes."Nelson Agholor finished with eight catches for 88 yards, including a 2-yard TD that cut Philadelphia's deficit to six points with 2:45 remaining. But it wasn't enough to escape the large hole that the defense helped create by giving up the long TDs to Jackson and Howard."You take those plays out, it's a totally different game," Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said. "And, that's completely on us."

The Buccaneers are continuing to hold out hope that the likes of
Jordan Whitehead and Beau Allen return to action against the Falcon’s offense this week and today’s injury report continues to look positive for that to happen. Allen again was a limited participant while Jordan Whitehead was a full participant for the second day in a row. O.J. Howard showing limited participation for the second day in a row while nursing his MCL injury from the prior game is another positive sign for the team and the high powered offense that Jameis Winston will be tasked with taking over this week.Marcus Williams was however downgraded from Limited to Did Not Participate for the Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hats , the lone change from Wednesday’s report to Thursday’s.For the Falcons, there were no changes on their injury report Thursday which bodes well for the Buccaneers as Devonta Freeman and Grady Jarrett were again unable to practice. Jarrett possibly missing will be a relief for the Buccaneers offensive interior that will look to get the ground game off and running with some consistency for the first time this season.Dirk Koetter gives updates after Monday’s practice It’s game week Buccaneer fans and the team was back on the practice filed as they prepare for the New Orleans Saints. Head Coach Dirk Koetter gave some updates Monday on the state of the team as well as some injury updates. Koetter update on Vita Vea: “He’s making good progress. Unfortunately, it’s not to the point where he can play football on the field yet, but he’s working a lot behind the scenes in the weight room, in the training room, and he’s making progress, but he’s not ready to play on the field yet.”Koetter was also asked whether or not he knows when Vea will return and he simply said he couldn’t comment any further. To me, it doesn’t look likely that Vea will be playing week one. Koetter update on Donovan Smith: “Yeah Tampa Bay Buccaneers Womens Hoodie , we’ll see how it shakes out. You guys know well – Donovan takes a lot of pride,” Koetter said. “He’s never missed a start in his time here, and if anybody can make it, it’s him.”My gut tells me Donovan will play on Sunday. Of course, practices later in the week will tell a bigger story, but like Koetter said, if anyone can heal that fast and play it’s Donovan.Koetter on if it was weird not having Jameis in the building: “It was a little bit. I think I noticed it the most when I walked in the quarterback room when we broke down for individual meetings and went in the quarterback room.,” Koetter said. “I mean Womens Customized Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys , it’s been a long time since Jameis hasn’t been camped out up in the front row next to his computer. It was a little bit strange, but we knew this was coming, and we planned for it. Now we’ve just got to do it.”You have to hope that the team doesn’t have a Jameis type hangover and let his absence affect their performance or energy level. I don’t think it will because Fitzpatrick also has their respect, but it’s something to keep an eye on. Being down a vocal leader can absolutely hurt a team, but Koetter does have to prepare them for that during the week.Koetter on it finally being week one: “Tough opener against a really good football team, but what better way for us to measure where we’re at? One of the toughest places to play in the league – going to play in the Dome in New Orleans,” Koetter said. “I know our guys are excited about it, and as you said a division game www.buccaneerscheapshops.com , so they know us well, we know them well. We’re excited about getting them going.”The Saints have lost their last four season openers, while the Buccaneers have won their last two. It’s a division matchup so the two teams are very familiar with each other, so there really shouldn’t be many surprises. Will the Saints have an NFC divisional game hangover? We shall see.

Here is the injury report for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 8
game against the Pittsburgh Steelers:Cleveland BrownsPositionPlayerInjuryWedThuFriGame StatusPositionPlayerInjuryWedThuFriGame StatusPittsburgh SteelersPositionPlayerInjuryWedThuFriGame StatusPositionPlayerInjuryWedThuFriGame StatusInjury NotesCleveland has three players ruled out this week: WR Rashard Higgins http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-baker-mayfield-jersey , MLB Joe Schobert, and CB E.J. Gaines. Gaines is still in the concussion protocol, so we may see Damarious Randall take on a cornerback role again.Randall himself is questionable. He didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday, but was a limited participant on Friday. The same goes for C JC Tretter, who is going to gut out another game on his sore ankle.The Steelers are without starting RT Marcus Gilbert for the second straight week, so Matt Feiler will start in his place again. The rest of the Steelers on the injury report appear good-to-go for Sunday. The bike brigade is back in Berea, and maybe at the worst possible time for the Cleveland Browns. Yeah, it’s football, guys are going to get hurt Denzel Ward Jersey , but that’s why teams have to carefully select their backups while managing the roster under the 53-man limitations.That’s especially true in short weeks like the Browns face as they prepare to take on the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football.Here’s the full Browns injury report for Tuesday:Damarious Randall was a new addition to the injury report this week and did not practice either Monday—the team didn't practice, but he would have been out—or Tuesday with a heel injury.Meanwhile, Seth DeValve, Chris Kirksey, and Emmanuel Ogbah—who all missed Week 2—all did not practice again on Tuesday. Their statuses are pretty clear, they’ll probably not play again this week, according to coach Hue Jackson.“From an injury standpoint, Emmanuel (Ogbah) will not make the game this week, but we are getting closer Authentic Jabrill Peppers Jersey , which I am excited about that,” Jackson said on Tuesday. “Kirko (Christian Kirksey), we will see how all of that unfolds. “Damarious (Randall), we will see where he is, but Damarious did not practice today. We will see where we are.”Denzel Ward, Jarvis Landry, Desmond Harrison, and Briean Boddy-Calhoun are all new additions to the team’s injury report this week. All four were limited on Tuesday, and their statuses for Thursday night are up in the air. Although Youth David Njoku Jersey , Jackson didn’t seem concerned about their outlooks.“Outside of that, there is nothing else to really report form a medical standpoint,” Jackson said. “All of the other bruises that we had, I think we will be fine and be ready to play.”On a short week, those bumps and bruises can creep up and cause some guys to miss games when they maybe wouldn’t have given a full week to recover.It’ll be a struggle for Cleveland if any number of these guys are unable to go on Thursday night.

Browns vs. Steelers Final Score: Ridiculous game ends in a 21-21

#8 liny195 » 10.12.2018, 11:20

tie How are we supposed to feel? The Browns rallied from 21-7 down http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/seth-devalve-jersey , took Pittsburgh to the limit in overtime...but we ended in a tie. A tie. We won’t go 0-16...but it was a tie? Ugh.Let’s get to how it went down.With the rain falling heavily, it was an ugly first half for both teams. For Cleveland, they couldn’t produce much of anything on offense. For Pittsburgh, they could move the ball, but QB Ben Roethlisberger threw three touchdowns in the first half. The first one went to CB Denzel Ward after a play broke down mid-way through the first quarter:The Steelers got on the scoreboard first part-way into the second quarter, thanks to a third down unnecessary roughness penalty on DE Myles Garrett that led to a fresh set of downs. One play later, RB James Conner punched it in from 4 yards out to give Pittsburgh a 7-0 lead:The Browns’ second takeaway came when Roethlisberger tried to find WR Antonio Brown deep, but FS Damarious Randall got the jump on it:The Browns’ next drive could have had them facing a decision on 4th-and-5 in deep field goal range, but the decision was taken out of their hands when WR Josh Gordon was flagged (bad call) for unnecessary roughness on a block. The Steelers final interception of the half came when they were driving to close out the first half, and the rookie Ward came away with his second pick of the half:The Browns got things going to begin the second half, but it took a little bit of help. QB Tyrod Taylor was sacked on the first play. Backed up in their own territory, a defensive holding on a run play by the Steekers’ nose tackle gave them a first down. Then, CB Artie Burns was fuming after a block by WR Jarvis Landry pancaked him, and he whipped off his helmet for a 15-yard penalty.From there, it was ground-and-pound from all three Cleveland running backs. Then, Taylor scrambled and took it in himself from 20 yards out to tie the game at 7-7.Unfortunately, it didn’t last long. On the first play of the next drive, WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught a quick pass and ran 67 yards down to the goal line. Back-to-back touchdown plays were called back to penalties, but then Roethlisberger hit WR Antonio Brown up the right edge for a 22-yard touchdown despite darn-near perfect coverage from Ward to make it a 14-7 game.The game quickly flipped after that. The Browns did nothing on offense, had a short punt, and then Conner had carries of 17 and 22 yards, the latter of which put the Steelers up 21-7 toward the tail end of the third quarter.Cleveland was sparked again on offense with a big play to WR Jarvis Landry downfield. they tried to stay aggressive, but the deep ball to WR Josh Gordon in the end zone saw CB Joe Haden go up and make an aggressive play that certainly could have been pass interference. On second down, Taylor and TE David Njoku couldn’t connect on a hot read that could’ve been a big play. Finally, on third down, Njoku just flat out dropped a perfect first down pass.Cleveland tried to grind things out. But on 4th-and-5 in scoring range, Taylor’s end zone pass for Landry fell incomplete. With under 8 minutes to go Womens Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey , that appeared to be it...but then DE Myles Garrett poked the ball away from Conner on the next play, and SS Jabrill Peppers recovered and returned it to the 1 yard line! RB Carlos Hyde punched it in, making it a 21-14 game with 7:32 to play.On the next drive, Roethlisberger was hit by Garrett after a bobbled snap, leading to a fumble that was recovered by MLB Joe Schobert! Sadly, despite being on their end of the field, the offense went three-and-out and had to punt with about 5 minutes to go.The Browns forced a punt, and with just over 2 minutes to go, Taylor found WR Rashard Higgins for 38 yards down the right sideline! On the next play, Taylor found WR Josh Gordon for his first catch of the game, a 17-yard touchdown, to tie the game at 21-21 with 1:58 to play in regulation!The Steelers went three-and-out themselves, and Cleveland started driving past midfield. With no timeouts and 23 seconds left, from the 42 yard line, Taylor tried to air one out to Gordon down the right sideline. The pass was underthrown, though, and Pittsburgh intercepted the pass, forcing overtime.The Browns won the coin toss and elected to receive the ball. They went three-and-out, though, and had to punt to Pittsburgh, who got a big dumpoff to Conner to move to near midfield. The defense came alive, though! Garrett’s rush forced a hold, CB Terrance Mitchell broke up a pass, and pressure forced Roethlisberger to take a sack for 3rd-and-31. That led to a punt, and with under 6 minutes to go, now you start worrying about the thought of a tie.Especially after the Browns went three-and-out, and now 4.5 minutes to go. A high snap on the punt http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/briean-boddy-calhoun-jersey , followed by the protector getting pushed into him, forced P Britton Colquitt to get rid of it quick, but short, allowing great field position for Big Ben. Several plays later, K Chris Boswell tried the game-winner from 42 yards out...and missed it!But the Browns went three-and-out. Despite there being 1:28 to play, they had to punt, giving Pittsburgh once last shot and basically settling for a tie at best....right? Right!?! Not yet!The Browns got pressure on Roethlisberger with 0:47 left and poked the ball out, allowing MLB Joe Schobert to intercept the pass and return it to within field goal range with 0:36 to go. That brought K Zane Gonzalez on for a 43-yard attempt...and it was blocked. :-/A tie.Quick HittersQB Tyrod Taylor: 15-of-39 for 197 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT. 8 rushes, 77 yards, 1 TD.RB Carlos Hyde: 22 rushes, 62 yards, 1 TD. 1 catch, 3 yards (2 targets).WR Jarvis Landry: 7 catches, 106 yards (15 targets).WR Josh Gordon: 1 catch, 17 yards (3 targets). 1 TD.DE Myles Garrett: 6 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles.CB Denzel Ward: 5 tackles, 2 interceptions.The Browns forced 6 turnovers, but were out-gained 472 yards to 327 yards.

Browns suffer total team loss to Raiders

#9 liny195 » 27.12.2018, 04:35

Cleveland Browns Hoodie , get no help from refs Clear and obvious, what a wonderful phrase. It means absolutely nothing to NFL officials, apparently.Whether it’s poor officiating, a colossal defensive meltdown, or a rash of second-half turnovers and confusingly stupid and increasingly conservative play-calling, there’s more than enough blame to dish out for the Cleveland Browns’ 45-42 loss to the Oakland Raiders.With the loss, the Browns have still not won a Sunday football game since their Week 14 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Dec. 13, 2015. That’s over 1,000 days ago. Yes, coach Hue Jackson is still winless on Sundays.But they certainly had their chances on this Sunday. They blew 10-point, 14-point, and eight-point—with under a minute to play—leads to give the Raiders a shot at winning in overtime. And win the Raiders did while surviving the Browns’ big-play second-half onslaught.And yes, the referees, one of the most experienced crews in the league led by chief Walt Anderson, did not do the Browns any favors in Oakland. They overturned what looked like Carlos Hyde gaining first-down yardage on 3rd-and-short, and the game should have ended.Here’s the standard of review for replays, according to Rule 15, Sect. 2, Art. 3 of the NFL’s 2018 Rulebook:You can cry foul right now, and you should. Scream it from the highest mountain you can climb. Call the NFL offices like you did when the Browns moved to Baltimore. But none of that’s going to change the outcome. The Browns are going to remain 1-2-1, and their faults that allowed their win to slip away are still going to be there.It’s really not debatable, though, that Anderson’s crew and the NFL League office replay official blew this one, robbing the Cleveland Browns of a win. The standard of review for overturning replays requiring “clear and obvious visual evidence” was not met.If the officials had given Hyde his spot at the 19 Youth Customized Cleveland Browns Jerseys , which was the referees’ decision on the field that was unconvincingly changed by the visual evidence that existed, Baker Mayfield would have hopped into the Browns’ victory formation cockpit for three straight kneel-downs. You also have to wonder whether Jackson should have went for it on 4th-and-miniscule, which would have also ended the game despite that atrocious call. A quarterback sneak up the middle isn’t guaranteed to work, but Jackson could have at least lined up his offense to try to draw the Raiders offsides. Worst-case scenario—with the clarity hindsight provides, of course—is Mayfield gets stuffed and the Raiders evened the score more quickly, giving the Browns even more time to get in position for a game-winning field goal.There were several other blown calls throughout the game, too, including a plethora of missed holding penalties on a Raiders offensive line that knew they could get away with it.It happened all day long, and right in front of the officials’ faces.If you forgot, let me remind you there was an equally egregious miss by the refs a few minutes before the Hyde play. The Browns strip-sacked Derek Carr with just over six minutes left in regulation, the officials didn’t see that the ball was loose, and they then inexcusably blew the play dead to protect the wrapped-up quarterback. The Browns missed out on a potential scoop-and-score by Larry Ogunjobi, which would have put them ahead by eight points.Yes, the Browns still ended up scoring on their ensuing possession to add to their lead, but those types of plays change game dynamics. Both teams would have approached things differently after that, so hold onto those thoughts.But the referees, as mentioned, weren’t solely to blame for the Browns squandering multiple leads. They had chances to put the Raiders away, and they blew it. They blew it collectively, as a team, from the head coach all the way down to the rookie special teams coverage player.Let’s go back to Jackson for a minute. The coach’s peculiar decision to go for a two-point conversion with a 9-7 lead and almost three quarters left to play is the first thing that jumps to mind. That came after some odd-ball play-calling, including the “cute” Antonio Callaway in-motion shovel pass play—a formation from which they ran several plays throughout the game to mixed results—that was blown up on 3rd-and-goal.That goal-line meltdown was an early sign that things may not have been heading in the right direction. Todd Haley’s curious play-calling and his unit’s poor red-zone execution prevented the Browns from putting seven points on board after Carlos Hyde made it 1st-and-goal from the 1-yard line. The Browns made up for it later on subsequent two-point tries, but that was a rough start for a young team that can’t afford to be hindered in any way by its coaches. Terrance Mitchell made a great play to break up what could have been a third-down conversion, but it may have cost him his season. E.J. Gaines entered as his primary backup www.brownsauthorizedshops.com , and he played well enough to keep things in front of him. But like Mitchell, Gaines was hurt and went down on the field after his interception before halftime. That meant former Raider T.J. Carrie would have to play more snaps than you’d like to see at outside cornerback. We’d prefer he didn’t play any, honestly. Just as we saw Carrie struggle significantly throughout training camp and preseason when playing outside, his woes continued.And we don’t need Pro Football Focus grades to tell us that the former Raider was abysmal in every way once entering the game. His poor play, coupled with Gregg Williams’ insistence on pressuring quick-release wizard Derek Carr, led to a multitude of easy completions with Carrie floundering in isolation coverage.This tirade won’t be complete until addressing Baker Mayfield’s miscues. Look, everyone gets it, he’s a rookie quarterback. Nobody in their right mind was expecting perfection. But with a 14-point lead, and his pocket collapsing near his own goal-line—hat tip to Chris Hubbard who was bull-rushed into Mayfield’s lap—the rookie held the ball too long and was stripped, leading to a momentum-shattering Raiders score.With time running out in the fourth quarter and his team driving at the Raiders’ 49-yard line, Mayfield’s first real rookie decision-making mistake came at the worst time. Reggie McKenzie easily snagged a puzzling prayer ball to Callaway with only seven seconds to play. That turnover squandered what could have been a possible game-winning field-goal attempt if he had thrown a safer pass, or just thrown that one away and lived to play another down. His receivers didn’t do him any favors, either, dropping what seemed like every other pass. Callaway absolutely should have caught the ball that turned into a pick-six, Mayfield’s first interception of his career and one of two in the game. By my count the Browns had 10 drops, and it could have been more. That’s such an embarrassingly high number that it pretty much speaks for itself. Mayfield had 20 incompletions, but he didn’t throw 20 poor passes.So, while you can chalk some things up to rookie mistakes—like the fumbled under-center exchange with J.C. Tretter that helped complete the Raiders comeback—it wasn’t all bad for Mayfield. Considering everything that went wrong for the Browns, it’s unfair to put too much blame on the rookie quarterback’s shoulders. He made some incredible throws and played escape artist all day in the pocket. His 295 passing yards were also the fifth-most by a No. 1 pick in an NFL debut in the Super Bowl era. Before I leave you to wallow in this mess, I can’t let the Browns defense off the hook for what was one of the most pathetic tackling efforts I have ever seen—Myles Garret and Joe Schobert excluded. With absolutely no mercy, Marshawn Lynch punked the Browns defense repeatedly, and Browns defenders were visibly timid and shied away from contacting the 32-year-old power-back. His play juiced his teammates, and the Raiders’ intensity level skyrocketed throughout much of the second half once he got rolling.The Browns made plenty of mistakes and could have done more to win in Oakland, but they did do enough to win Cleveland Browns Womens T-Shirt , and I’m comfortable saying they earned a victory. They just didn’t get one.But, between you and me, Hyde made the 19-yard line, and there’s nothing definitive in the footage that shows otherwise.Joe Thomas does not see Austin Corbett as a future LT When the Cleveland Browns drafted offensive lineman Austin Corbett with the first pick of the second round this year, it was assumed that Corbett would instantly be placed in the competition for the vacant left tackle position. But the man who held the job for the last 11 seasons doesn’t see it that way.Joe Thomas, who retired in the offseason after spending his entire career in Cleveland, said to NFL.com’s Nick Shook this week that, “I don’t think Austin Corbett is going to play tackle in the NFL. I got to spend all of spring there watching film and practicing and coaching him up and he’s certainly a guard or a center.”That doesn’t mean Thomas thinks Corbett doesn’t have a role to play, either this year or eventually. Rather, he believes that left guard Joel Bitonio has the best shot to serve as Cleveland’s left tackle this season, with Corbett or Spencer Drango then moved to guard.Thomas cited Corbett’s physical frame as a main reason why tackle doesn’t appear to be the right position. “Austin, God bless him, is not a tackle. He does not have the speed that you need to be able to block edge rushers... I think he’s very well-suited for guard, for center, but he’s not really tall or lanky. He’s not a basketball player. I think typically you want your tackles to be kind of former basketball players,” said Thomas. Shook and Thomas didn’t discuss Shon Coleman, but he too should be one of the options the Browns explore at left tackle during the course of training camp and the preseason.Thomas, meanwhile, isn’t looking much like an offensive tackle himself these days. He told Shook that “I was more eager to lose weight than almost anything in retirement,” and has dropped 50 pounds thus far. His secret? “You just don’t eat until you feel like you’re gonna throw up at every meal and all of a sudden the weight falls right off.”

Browns’ defensive snap counts
Authentic Damarious Randall Jersey , stats, and PFF notes: Week 4 Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on defense for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders.Defensive LinePosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsI am still puzzled at what has led to such a dramatic shift in defensive line reps for Gregg Williams from 2017 to 2018. Again, I am 100% on board with playing Myles Garrett for the majority of the game, but this was another overtime game and he was on the field for 95% of the snaps. Can’t that number be lowered just a tad? Chris Smith showed some really good things the past two games, but this week, with the return of Emmanuel Ogbah, Smith only played a total of 5 snaps.Garrett had 9 tackles — although Cleveland struggled to bring down Marshawn Lynch at times, Garrett was making run stops left and right. Per PFF:LinebackerPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsJoe Schobert led the Browns with 14 tackles, playing every snap out of 92. He also registered the team’s first sack of the game, and Jamie Collins had a sack later on. Schobert was boxed out by TE Jared Cook on one of his touchdown grabs over the middle. Some good defense in another instance led to an interception for CB E.J. Gaines.Christian Kirksey played a lot of snaps (90%) in his first week back.Genard Avery continues to generate pressure, having 4 quarterback hits on Derek Carr.CornerbackPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsDenzel Ward played every snap, but had a very quiet game — my initial instinct is that he wasn’t targeted very often.The biggest defensive issue in this game was the loss of Terrance Mitchell, who now appears to be out for the season. Mitchell had a strong start to the game, but after his exit, T.J. Carrie played and was abused the rest of the game by the Raiders’ receivers. The play we saw from Carrie against Oakland is reminiscent of what Corey Coleman was doing to him in training camp, and look where Coleman is now. Carrie is definitely the one bust that John Dorsey acquired this offseason.SafetyPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsAlthough he gave up the last touchdown to TE Jared Cook, this looked to be another great game for FS Damarious Randall. He had an interception with a long return, and later made a great read and tackle in the open field in the red zone.The Browns are definitely sticking with their rotation at safety between Derrick Kindred and Jabrill Peppers. Something seems wrong about the fact that the defense was on the field for 92 plays, and your first-round safety from a year ago couldn’t find a way to get on the stat sheet, though.From PFF, the Browns were fortunate their secondary issues on Sunday weren’t worse:Joel Bitonio traveling familiar territory in switch to left tackle Mastering any offensive line position is a hard enough Womens Denzel Ward Jersey , but getting there and then being asked to transition to left tackle, easily the hardest and most important spot on the line, is a tall and complicated task.The Dawgs By Nature staff reached out to Football Outsiders to help figure out which elite guards have successfully made the change to left tackle that Joel Bitonio is currently undergoing. We found out that there have been two primary examples of this kind of transition occurring in the not-so-distant past.First was New York Giants lineman David Diehl. Drafted 160th overall out of Illinois in 2003 as a versatile offensive lineman after playing guard his senior season in Champaign, Diehl didn’t take much time to surpass expectations following his 5th round draft selection. After starting every game for the G-men during his rookie season, Diehl was moved everywhere on their offensive line during his 11 seasons with the team. Like Bitonio he started at guard—but on the right side—moved to right tackle in his sophomore season, transitioned to left guard for the next two seasons, and then made the transition to left tackle in 2007. The Giants won their first of two Super Bowls that year with him at left tackle. He also started at left tackle in every game in 2011, the year the Giants won Super Bowl XLVI.Diehl was appreciated by his team during his 11-year career for his selflessness, work ethic and leadership. “When I think of David Diehl what comes to mind is his indomitable spirit,” coach Tom Coughlin said, following Diehl’s retirement in 2014. “He got the most out of his God-given ability and that’s the best way that you can judge any individual. What more can you ask of the guy?’’It’s obvious that his method of approaching the game made his multiple position changes not only possible, but vastly successful. Diehl finished his career with just one Pro Bowl appearance in 2009, but his impact was felt by the results he was able to help the Giants achieve during his tenure in New York.The next example of this atypical transition was made by Los Angeles Rams, and former Cincinnati Bengal Andrew Whitworth. Whitworth was a prototypical left tackle who started every game he played in from his redshirt freshman season until the Bengals drafted him 55th overall in 2006 with hopes he’d be their left tackle of the future. Although, there were some pre-draft concerns about his fit as an elite left tackle in the NFL. Nonetheless, Whitworth started at left tackle during his rookie season in 2006, but was moved to left guard from 2007 to 2009 before transitioning back to left tackle. Cincinnati again moved him back to guard in 2013 to cover up for injuries on their line, and he was moved there yet again in 2016.During his NFL career, despite the brief detours to the guard position, Whitworth dispelled any kinds of doubts about his fit at left tackle. At 36—he turns 37 in December—he’s still going. Whitworth earned NFL Top 100 honors entering the 2018 season, as voted on by his peers, finishing at No. 87 http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jc-tretter-jersey , just one season after being ranked Pro Football Focus’ 36th-best player in the NFL, for his play at left tackle.Now, unlike Diehl, Bitonio was a left tackle at Nevada. He had the experience at the position, but there were also some concerns about his fit at left tackle at the NFL level, which had similar echoes to Whitworth’s pre-draft scouting reports. Bitonio was pegged as a guard prospect in multiple projections, and the Browns seemed to agree as he played there in his initial four seasons in the league. But like the others who have made the transition, Bitonio has the pedigree, the size and the experience to successfully pull off the switch to starting NFL left tackle.Bitonio also expressed the same kind of selfless attitude Diehl rolled with while playing Swiss Army Knife for the Giants for so many years.“(Head) Coach (Hue) Jackson wants to put the best five offensive lineman on the field, and right now, he thinks that is with me at left tackle,” Bitonio said after being notified of the switch. “I am going to try and be the best left tackle I can be, and if something happens to where I have to go play left guard again, then I will try to be ready for that, as well. “It is just what is going to help our team win the most games.”Will Bitonio’s story end in multiple Super Bowls for himself and the Browns, along with some minor accolades accrued along the way? The Browns may not see him as a long-term fix for their left tackle position in the post-Joe Thomas world, but he could potentially finish his career like Whitworth, consistently finishing among the most respected left tackles in the game.The truth probably lies somewhere in between.Either way, the Browns and their fans will be thrilled if he can make the transition and protect the quarterback better than Shon Coleman or Spencer Drango were able to accomplish since Thomas’ departure.Then again, that bar is very, very low.You can pick up the 2018 Football Outsiders Almanac here.

Around the NFC South: Week Five The Buccaneers were off in week five
http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.com/ryan-jensen-jersey , needing to reset everything after week four’s embarrassing loss to the Chicago Bears. But while Tampa Bay was on its bye, the rest of the NFC South took the field. Let’s break down how the rest of the division did this past weekend. New Orleans Saints (4-1)The Saints pounded the Redskins, 43-19, on Monday Night Football for their fourth straight win. A 26-13 halftime lead for New Orleans quickly turned into a 40-13 lead in the third quarter. Despite trailing just 6-3 after one quarter, Washington couldn’t hang the rest of the way. The Saints were clicking all night on both sides of the ball. Offensively, they put up 447 yards. Defensively, they held Alex Smith and the Redskins to just 283 yards. Ever since that loss to Tampa Bay in week one, New Orleans has been on fire.Drew Brees had a huge night, one that will be remembered forever. He completed 26 of his 29 passes for 363 yards and three touchdowns. With his 62-yard touchdown pass to rookie Tre’Quan Smith in the second quarter, Brees passed Peyton Manning for the most passing yards in NFL history. The game was halted so that the legendary quarterback could celebrate with his teammates, coaches Womens Chris Godwin Jersey , family and the home fans. Smith later caught another touchdown, finishing the night with three catches for 111 yards and two scores. Mark Ingram made a successful return from suspension, running for 53 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries.Up Next: at Baltimore Ravens (3-2)— Week SevenCarolina Panthers (3-1) The Panthers continued their quiet success on Sunday with a 33-31 victory over the Giants. Carolina took a 20-16 lead into the fourth quarter, but the final 15 minutes were full-on wild. Cam Newton connected with Christian McCaffrey for an 18-yard touchdown with 11:21 left to go up 27-16. But New York wasn’t done, as Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. linked up for a 33-yard touchdown before Manning hit Rhett Ellison for the two-point conversion. After a Graham Gano field goal made it 30-24, Manning threw a go-ahead 15-yard touchdown to rookie Saquon Barkley, giving the Giants a late lead. From there, Newton led the offense 30 yards to set up a game-winning 63-yard field goal by Gano. 63 yards!Newton finished the day 21-of-35 for 237 yards and two touchdowns to two interceptions. McCaffrey ran for 58 yards and caught five passes for 35 yards and a touchdown. But Gano was the hero, delivering four field goals, including the 63-yard game-winner.Up Next: at Washington Redskins (2-2)Atlanta Falcons (1-4)The Falcons continued to struggle on Sunday, losing 41-17 to the Steelers. They fell behind 13-0 after one quarter Authentic DeSean Jackson Jersey , but fought back to 13-10 by halftime. The momentum didn’t carry over to the third quarter, as Pittsburgh scored 14 straight to extend its lead to 27-10. After Atlanta cut the deficit to 10, the defense couldn’t hold and the Steelers put the game away with two more touchdowns. The banged-up Falcon defense allowed 381 yards on the day.Matt Ryan was fairly effective, throwing for 285 yards and a touchdown on 26-of-38 passing. Devonta Freeman didn’t do much in his return from injury, rushing for 32 yards on just eight carries. Star wide receiver Julio Jones is still without a touchdown this season, despite already having 564 yards. Up Next: vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2) Fitzmagic has taken the league by storm. Ryan Fitzpatrick followed up his insane week one performance versus the New Orleans Saints with another tremendous performance against the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. But he’s not the only quarterback who is off to a hot start. Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes is also lighting up the league. But in Tampa Bay Fitzpatrick’s stunning play has raised debates and important questions alike. Should Fitzpatrick keep the starting quarterback job? For how long? How long can he keep up this play? Is there any historical precedent for this? If so, can that tell us anything about how Fitzpatrick might play going forward? Can a hot start lead to a good season, or is it just a fluke?It’s a question Football Outsiders and Justis Mosqueda of Optimum Scouting both asked, and they both approached the problem in a similar manner and came out with similar results - by taking defense-adjusted yards above replacement (DYAR) (Fitz has 478) and adjusted yards per attempt (AY/A) (Fitz is at 15.3). Football Outsiders (FBO) states that only Tom Brady in 2011 has ever gotten off to a hotter start. Of the 18 players that made the list that started somewhat similarly, most are in the Hall of Fame, or will be. It includes Brady Womens Vita Vea Jersey , Peyton Manning, John Elway, Jim Kelly, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, and guys like Drew Bledsoe and Donovan McNabb. But it’s important to note that most of these seasons by these guys don’t even come close to what Fitzpatrick has done.Mosqueda had this to say:But what do these numbers tell us about how Fitzpatrick might play the rest of season? FBO says:So there doesn’t seem to be a great analog for Fitzpatrick, as the only real journeyman to ever do anything similar to what he’s doing is...Brad Johnson, who did it with Washington in 1999. This Bucs defense is not that. Despite that, Mosqueda writes:Fitzpatrick’s career average AY/A is 6.16, and has only one other season above 7 AY/A, with Houston in 2014. Despite his averages www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.com , Fitzpatrick has placed himself well in continuing to be one of the better quarterbacks in the league this season. It’s also important to remember that it’s not just Fitzpatrick and Mahomes lighting it up. The whole league is having success passing, though of course to a smaller degree:So what can we take away from all this? First, that Fitzpatrick is doing something truly unprecedented for the type of player he is, and is standing out even in a bonkers passing environment. Even if it’s impossible for him to sustain this level of play, he is still more likely to play better than he ever has before, and that bodes extremely well for Tampa Bay’s playoff chances. The NFC is loaded though, so the Bucs will probably have to win 9 of their remaining 14 games to finish 11-5 to feel comfortable making the playoffs.

Well, I’ll go ahead and let everyone know Youth Justin Evans Jersey , this is not a pretty review. Tampa Bay essentially failed in all five keys to victory that I outlined prior to the baffling blowout loss to Chicago.It was a game where nothing went right. Seriously. Mitchell Trubisky had thrown just nine touchdowns to ten interceptions in his career before he got a chance to play the Buccaneers. Offensively, it wasn’t any better against a Bears defense that pressured Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston all game.1. Limiting turnoversA week after turning the ball over four times against Pittsburgh, the Buccaneers lost possession of the ball three more times against Chicago.Fitzpatrick tossed another interception after three against the Steelers while Jameis Winston threw two picks during his 2018 debut.With a defense that is one of the worst in the NFL, Tampa Bay has to take extra care of the football going forward. 2. Slowing down the Chicago pass-rushTampa Bay allowed three sacks a week ago and they surrendered a season-high four sacks against the Bears vaunted pass-rush. It’s been an ugly two weeks for this offensive line after a solid start to the season.Now, it seems like we’re left with more questions than answers. Were the first two weeks a fluke? Or were the last two weeks a fluke? It’s safe to say that this is a puzzle that needs to be solved quickly. 3. Flustering Mitchell TrubiskyConsidering that Trubisky looked like the second coming of Joe Montana on Sunday http://www.authenticstampabaybuccaneers.com/cheap-beau-allen-jersey , Tampa Bay failed here big time. The defense generated just one sack (in the first quarter) and three quarterback hits all day.That allowed Trubisky to stand in the pocket and deliver passes. He finished the game with 364 yards and six touchdowns. How will the defense respond after getting absolutely picked apart by one of the worst quarterbacks on their schedule? 4. Scoring touchdowns in the red zoneAfter a 2/5 performance in the red zone against Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay wasn’t much better against the Bears. The Buccaneers finished 2/3 in the red zone and were forced to settle for a field goal during the first quarter from the Chicago 13-yard line.The touchdown the Bucs scored didn’t come until the fourth quarter when this game was well out of a reach. You have to wonder if this team will take a step forward or stay relatively the same in the red zone with Jameis Winston leading the offense. 5. Finding more balance on offenseThe running game has been a problem for Tampa Bay since week one. The Buccaneers had 112 rushing yards in their season-opening win over the New Orleans Saints.In the three weeks since then, the Bucs have recorded a total of 166 yards on the ground. The offensive line has failed to consistently pave running lanes and the running backs haven’t been great at hitting them either.Tampa Bay ran 18 times for 60 yards (3.3 YPC) against Chicago. They haven’t had a rush longer than 23 yards all season and have scored just one touchdown on the ground, courtesy of Fitzpatrick.

Kendell Beckwith to be placed on non-football injury
list to begin training camp The latest update on Kendell Beckwith is not a good one. According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times Gerald McCoy Jersey , Beckwith will begin training camp on the active/non-football injury list. Beckwith won’t be out for any amount of mandatory time while on the list, he can return to practice as soon as he is medically cleared to play. As Stroud mentions, Beckwith injured his anke while traveling as passenger in a car back in April. The injury required surgery, which he had soon after the accident.It was estimated that he would miss time in training camp and that may even stretch into Week 1 of the regular season. This type of injury usually requires around 6-8 weeks to heal before rehabilitation.Beckwith had been rehabbing at the facility and participating in team meetings, but this latest bit of news runs parallel to the medical prognostications that were given earlier in the year. The Bucs need to be “all systems go” with every player this season and right now they could already be down two starters for Week 1 after adding in Jameis Winston’s suspension. That’s not a good start for a team that gets no breaks early on in 2018. If Ryan Fitzpatrick can pull this off. . . .The Bucs have never overcome a 17-point Authentic Jameis Winston Jersey , fourth-quarter deficit. They trailed by 20 at halftime. It’s down to 10 now, with half the fourth quarter remaining.Chandler Catanzaro kicked a 28-yard field goal for the only points in the third quarter, and Fitzpatrick hit Chris Godwin early in the fourth.DeSean Jackson thought he had it down to a 3-point game, but his 83-yard punt return for a touchdown was negated by a holding penalty on safety Isaiah Johnson.Fitzpatrick now is 25-of-39 for 336 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions.Ben Roethlisberger, who was 21-of-25 for 273 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the first half Youth Demar Dotson Jersey , now is 28-of-35 for 330 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.The problem is the Steelers miss Le'Veon Bell. They have no running game to run clock. James Conner has 10 carries for 12 yards, and Stevan Ridley has three carries for 18 yards.

Fantasy football waiver wire: 5 adds for Week 5
We’re a quarter of the way through the regular season — even further through the fantasy season — and impactful waiver wire pickups will continue to get rarer. But there’s still a few players widely available who can help your fantasy team over the next few weeks. Let’s take a look at this week’s waiver wire targets:Nyheim Hines Landon Collins Jersey , RB, Indianapolis ColtsRostered - Yahoo: 15% | ESPN: 15.5%In two of four games this season, Hines has seen at least nine targets. Against Houston, Hines got 11 targets, which tied for the team lead with Chester Rogers as T.Y. Hilton missed time and it resulted in two receiving touchdowns. Hines played a nice 69 percent with Marlon Mack out and Mack was limited on Monday. Even if Hines isn’t playing 70 percent of future snaps, he might have done enough to earn a role as the receiving back and maybe, more importantly, Andrew Luck’s trust. Hines’s role could be important going forward on a team that’s likely to pass often while trailing.Taywan Taylor, WR Authentic Jon Halapio Jersey , Tennessee TitansRostered - Yahoo: 6% | ESPN: 3.9%With a healthy Marcus Mariota and Rishard Matthews out of the rotation, Taywan Taylor took over as Tennessee’s No. 2 receiver. Taylor played 63 percent of the snaps for the Titans, the second most among their wide receivers, and his nine targets tied with Dion Lewis for second on the team. His average depth of target (12.1) was just behind Corey Davis against the Eagles. Taylor has the talent to be a consistent contributor in the offense and now it appears he also has the opportunity.T.J. Yeldon, RB, Jacksonville JaguarsRostered - Yahoo: 50% | ESPN: 46.8%This is probably a no-brainer and 50 percent ownership is as high as I’ll go for a player in this column, but it’s important to note Yeldon is still available in half of fantasy football leagues — more than half if you play on ESPN. Leonard Fournette will be out indefinitely, so Yeldon will take the load as Jacksonville’s top back (even though Corey Grant should get more playing time). Against the Jets, Yeldon got 62 percent of the snaps and had 18 carries for 52 yards and a touchdown. He also added three receptions for 48 yards and a touchdown. Without Fournette in the lineup Cheap Evan Engram Jersey , Yeldon played 58 percent of the snaps against the New England Patriots and 67 percent against Tennessee. The Jacksonville offense is apparently going to go how Blake Bortles goes — a risky week-to-week proposition — but for however long Fournette is out, Yeldon will get a lot of work. Taylor Gabriel, WR, Chicago BearsRostered - Yahoo: 6% | ESPN: 6.6%Gabriel finally had his breakout game in Week 4, along with the rest of the Bears offense. But Gabriel has at least seven targets in each of the past three games. Last week, he had 10 targets with an aDOT of 18.1, the seventh-highest depth of the week. In Week 4, Taylor got his seven targets at an aDOT of 9.6 and took that for 104 yards and two touchdowns. His role has grown each week, especially since the start of the season when he was only taking screens and “touch pass” pseudo-handoffs in the backfield. Against the Buccaneers http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-kareem-martin-jersey , Gabriel played 79 percent of the offensive snaps, which trailed only Allen Robinson at wide receiver.Chicago will be on a bye Week 5, so you’ll have to stash him for a week before he can be used, but he can turn into a high upside play starting in a week.Vance McDonald, TE, Pittsburgh SteelersRostered - Yahoo: 43% | ESPN: 31.3%In the Steelers offense, Vance McDonald isn’t going to lead the team in targets, but there are enough opportunity and enough chances at big plays for McDonald to be a solid play at tight end. McDonald has received five targets in each of the three games he’s played. This week turned into 62 yards and last week it was 112 yards and a touchdown. McDonald, now healthy B.J. Goodson Jersey , out-snapped Jesse James 62 percent to 44 percent against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night.He’ll continue to get decent looks and maybe more if the Steelers’ defense remains a unit that struggles to stop opposing offenses. Is New York Giants’ running back Saquon Barkley “the right player for the wrong team?” That’s what Newsday’s national NFL columnist Bob Glauber opined on Monday’s debut episode of the ‘Valentine’s Views’ podcast on Big Blue View Radio.Glauber’s opinion on the selection of Barkley rather than a quarterback hits an often-debated topic that won’t go away unless the Giants are able to quickly find a long-term successor for Eli Manning.Quite a way to get the newest show on Big Blue View radio off the ground.Glauber, who began covering the Giants in the mid-1980s, said the team’s current circumstance is the worst he has seen in the more than 30 years he has been around the organization.Here is more of what you will find on today’s episode:Glauber promoted his book, ‘Guts and Genius,’ the story of coaches Bill Parcells, Joe Gibbs and Bill Walsh.

Good morning
4Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , New York Giants fans! Let’s get right to your Saturday morning headlines.Shurmur: Analytics part of changing gameIn various ways, coach Pat Shurmur is still being asked about his Monday night decision to go for a two-point conversion with the Giants trailing by eight. Friday, the question was phrased in regards to the growing popularity of analytics.“It’s not popularity. At one point, we all thought the world was flat, and then you learn. At one point, nobody would allow the players to drink water – we’ve talked about water, right?,” Shurmur said. “In the old days, hydration wasn’t an issue, or it wasn’t a concern. Same thing, as we go forward, there’s new things added to our game. Analytics is certainly part of that, intuition is the other.”QuotableNate Solder: Criticism comes with the jobOffensive tackle Nate Solder was asked Friday about criticism of the offensive line.“There’s always going to be criticism. If you win every single game, there’s going to be criticism. If you lose every single game Eli Manning Jersey , there’s going to be criticism,” he said. “There’s some good, there’s some bad. You improve on the bad, and you keep doing what’s good, and you move forward.”Bettcher: Alec Ogletree a “special player”Linebacker Alec Ogletree won’t play Sunday due to a hamstring injury. Here’s defensive coordinator James Bettcher on Ogletree’s importance to the Giants:“Special player, great character, unbelievable work ethic,” Bettcher said. “We are fortunate Tree is here and Tree is going to be one of the biggest reasons that we get things turned around and going in the direction we all want to go in. Tireless worker in terms of watching film. One of the best individual leaders I’ve ever been around, and just love working with him.”[E-mail Ed at bigblueview@gmail.com or via the Big Blue View Contact Page | Follow Big Blue View on Twitter | ‘Like’ Big Blue View on Facebook | Follow Big Blue View on Instagram] Good morning, New York Giants fans! It’s a Giants game day as the face the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football (8:15 p.m. ESPN). Let’s help you fill the void — and avoid really diving into your work week — with some Giants headlines for the day.Let’s start with a few notes from coach Pat Shurmur’s meeting with reporters on Saturday.On releasing guard Patrick Omameh ...Shurmur called Omameh “one of my favorite people that I’ve met doing this.”“Pat came in and to his credit, he’s been a good soldier. We moved him around. We brought him in. We were going to play him at left guard. We signed him before we knew we were going to draft (G) Will (Hernandez), so he moved over to right guard. He battled for us. You just make changes, and that’s just the way it goes. We’re constantly looking to try to get the right combination of guys. We don’t have a problem playing young players. We’ll constantly change the roster, and then the players that are here Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , we’re going to continue to develop them. That’s why they play.”On releasing and then bringing back kick returner Quadree Henderson ...“We hoped that he would clear and then be available for us, like he was. Put him on the practice squad, and now we bumped him up. “In some situations, you have to do that. I think every – you can probably go and talk to every head coach in the league and they’re dealing with working their roster because of injuries sometimes and sometimes it’s because you’re just trying to get the better players.”On the Giants’ red zone difficulties (31st in the league in touchdown efficiency) ...“This is the hundredth time I’ve answered that question,” Shurmur said. “It’s pretty obvious that we’ve got to get the ball in the end zone. There’s other things the people that crunch the numbers will tell you that we’re doing much better (offensively) than a year ago, but it comes down to scoring and preventing scores. When we get down there and we choose to run the ball, we’ve got to make yards, and when we choose to pass the ball, we’ve either got to get a completion or we catch it and run in the end zone, or throw the ball and have it completed in the end zone. That’s what we have to do better and that’s really what we’ve been talking about now for quite some time.”Podcast stuffRemember to subscribe to Big Blue Radio on all your favorite podcast apps:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Pocket Casts | Spotify | Stitcher | RSSThe latest episode from Dan and Chris focuses on offensive linemen in the 2019 NFL Draft class.Ed’s episodes last week included a look at the second half of the season and a Giants-49ers preview with Oscar Aparicio of the ‘BetterRivals’ podcast.Around the Inter-GoogleHow NY Giants rookie Sean Chandler has defied the odds in NFL journeyNFL long shot Sean Chandler made the NY Giants as an undrafted rookie, but the Camden native's journey to the league has long been about defying oddsHow the 'steady' Pat Shurmur is handling a rocky first season - New York Giants Blog- ESPNThe first-year Giants head coach is keeping his emotions in check and lines of communication with players open as he navigates a trying season.Giants specialist Quadree Henderson's wild ride back to teamQuadree Henderson is getting a heavy dose of what life is like in the NFL: here today, gone tomorrow, then back again as if you’d never left.The rookie free...What to expect of Giants' Kyle Lauletta: Is he Kirk Cousins?

The New York Giants are getting ready for a Monday Night Football game
against the San Francisco 49ers. The Giants www.giantsauthorizedshops.com , at 1-7, are at the midpoint of their season. With that in mind, let’s hand out some midseason “Kudos & Wet Willies.”This isn’t going to be long. We have talked at length in many ways about the avalanche of bad and the tiny slivers of good this season. So, I’m not going in-depth on anything here. This is just a high-level hit.As usual, I’m sure you will let me know what you agree or disagree with.QuarterbackEli Manning has Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley at his disposal. Yet, he has only eight touchdown passes in eight games and leads an offense scoring only 18.8 points per game, much of it in garbage time. The offensive line is terrible and that’s a major part of it, but he hasn’t been good enough. Wet Willie.Kyle Lauletta gets a “Wet Willie” simply for the bad judgment he showed in getting arrested last week, perhaps delaying his chance to play.Running backUmm ... gee, Saquon Barkley, on a historic pace for a rookie, gets “Kudos.” Jonathan Stewart gets a “Kudos” and a “Wet Willie.” He gets “Kudos” for somehow bamboozling the Giants out of $3.45 million. He gets a “Wet Willie” for lasting six carries (and gaining 17 yards) before landing on IR.Tight endA receiving tight end who can’t catch? You know the grade for Evan Engram. Wet Willie.Offensive linePutrid. The only bright spot has, at times, been rookie Will Hernandez. Wet Willie. Wide receiverWhen it comes to Odell Beckham Jr., we’re keeping this to his work on the field. He has 61 catches, on pace for 122, which would shatter Steve Smith’s franchise record of 107. He is on pace for 1 New York Giants Womens T-Shirt ,570 receiving yards, which would break his own franchise record. Kudos.Sterling Shepard is on pace for his first 1,000-yard season and could set career highs in yardage, receptions and yards per catch. Kudos.Defensive lineDamon Harrison is gone, but it’s hard to complain about the work that B.J., Dalvin Tomlinson and Kerry Wynn have done. “Kudos” to that trio.EdgeOlivier Vernon has played only three games but is tied for the team lead with 10 pressures. Kudos.Lorenzo Carter is showing potential, but I’m not sure exactly how to grade him. Kwillie.Free-agent acquisitions Kareem Martin and Connor Barwin have given the Giants very little. Wet Willies.Inside linebackerSome good, some bad for both B.J. Goodson and Alec Ogletree. Kwillies.Ray-Ray Armstrong is gone and Tae Davis has yet to really play enough to get a grade.CornerbackB.W. Webb has been a good find for the Giants. Kudos.Janoris Jenkins? He is the league’s 121st ranked corner, per Pro Football Focus, playing far below the level of his $62 million contract. Wet Willie.SafetyLandon Collins hasn’t made any real game-changing plays, but otherwise has been his typical self. Kudos.Curtis Riley? The Giants need to go back to the drawing board at free safety. Wet Willie.Special teamsPlacekicker Aldrick Rosas has been excellent, 17-of-18 in field goals (94.9 percent) with his only miss coming from beyond 50 yarrs. Punter Riley Dixon has been solid. “Kudos” to both.A “Wet Willie” to every return man the Giants have used this season not named Quadree Henderson or Jawill Davis.Eli Manning: “Nothing is going to get fixed by complaining” Did Eli Manning hint at some locker room unhappiness during his post-game remarks on Sunday night following the New York Giants’ 20-13 loss to the Dallas Cowboys?“Obviously guys are disappointed, some guys are getting frustrated as we should, but we can’t let that affect our preparation or our practices, so we’ve got to bounce back and come back,” Manning said. “Nothing is going to get fixed by complaining, we just need to step it up New York Giants Hats , make a difference and fix some things.”The Giants are now 0-2. What was expected to be an explosive offense has been pedestrian, at best, averaging 14.0 points through two games. Sunday, the offense was reduced mostly to checkdowns to Saquon Barkley, who caught an astounding 14 passes.The offensive line hasn’t been good. There haven’t been enough big plays. Mostly, there has been a pair of season-opening losses.A year ago, a season that went sour was marked by locker room issues. Mostly by what seemed like a division between the players and the coaching staff. With a new coach and 30 new players the Giants hope to have put all of that behind them. “When you have new players, a new scheme, a new coach sometimes it takes a little bit of time, especially for your first game on the road. It can take a little bit to get your rhythm and get things going, so we just have to keep working and make sure everyone can figure it out with the coaches to do better, and do differently to put us in a better position,” Manning said.The Giants, though, are rapidly running out of time. They need answers — and victories — soon.

Remember when Matt Breida was signed as a UDF

#10 liny195 » 27.12.2018, 06:18

A running back for the San Francisco 49ers in 2017? I do. I remember looking at him Youth Mike Person Jersey , the recently drafted Joe Williams, and promising Carlos Hyde and saying, “camp body.” But then he outplayed everyone (except for Hyde) and word came out that the 49ers were high on him through training camp. Next thing you know, he’s not just splitting carries with Hyde, he’s outplaying Hyde. At the end of the season, Breida was kept and Hyde was not re-signed. The 49ers went with Jerick McKinnon as the featured back, but you knew Breida had something. Then McKinnon blew out his knee. The 49ers signed Alfred Morris, but it didn’t take long for it to become Breida’s backfield, and there’s no way anyone is wrenching it from him. Even when injured and looking to be yanked for a Sunday as a precaution, Breida finds a way into the lineup and makes an impact every game. The flashy play in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions was something Youth Adrian Colbert Jersey , but the performance he just had against the New York Giants was something else. 101 yards, two touchdowns, one of which was both a genius play-call and a great catch. All of a sudden Breida isn’t a last resort, he’s a focal point. One that worked his tail off to get there and one who is no longer a young rookie, but a veteran with an example set to the younger players next year. Kyle Shanahan looks at him and tight end George Kittle as the hardest workers on the team: Remember, Williams was thought to be Shanahan’s guy. If Breida panned out it would be icing on the cake. Now Brieda is the guy. Some are not fortunate to get a chance to show what they have, and when they get it, it gets ripped right away after. Breida’s made the most of everything he has. Of course, the only thing to look at when you see Breida gashing defenders is what could have been. What would have been with Jerick McKinnon. Having both Breida and McKinnon in on a play to create misdirections (throw Kyle Juszczyk in there for good measure). Have to wonder if Shanahan is thinking the same thing about putting those two on the same down:Imagine what the backfield could look like with three strong pass catchers available? We’ve started to see it with Breida and Juszczyk back there, but imagine being able to swap in McKinnon as well? Or what about getting really crazy with all three in the backfield? We saw the 49ers run the full-house pistol formation quite a bit under Jim Harbaugh. We could see plenty of that http://www.49erscheapstore.com/joe-staley-jersey-cheap , but how about they throw everybody off with a wishbone formation as well? The world will be Kyle Shanahan’s oyster when McKinnon returns. The San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals square off on Sunday. Both teams could really use a win for locker room morale, but both teams could use a loss for draft pick purposes. Take your pick for what you’re rooting for!I took some time this week to chat with Revenge of the Birds editor Seth Cox. We chatted about why our teams would win and lose on Sunday. My reasons for the 49ers winning and losing are here. Below is what Seth had to say about his Cardinals.For the first time in weeks, it feels like the Arizona Cardinals have a shot.No, not only because they are playing a bad San Francisco team, no offense, but because change usually begets a boost for a team.It likely won’t change much on the overall season, but it will provide a temporary boost that helps get the Arizona Cardinals a win or two.Two reasons the Cardinals win in Week 8Mike McCoy is goneMcCoy has been one of the worst coaches in the NFL for the last two years, that’s why he’s been fired three times since the end of the 2016 season. Enter Byron Leftwich, who studied for years as a quarterback, offensive assistant and finally quarterbacks coach under Bruce Arians. Leftwich has a fantastic rapport with Josh Rosen http://www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com/k_waun-williams-jersey-authentic , and he’ll bring back some of the concepts of the Bruce Arians offense, likely the rushing game and using David Johnson in a multitude of ways. He’ll also incorporate some of the concepts that Josh Rosen likes to use from college and even the Mike McCoy offense. The thing that Leftwich has vowed to do is something McCoy hasn’t done in his last two stops and why he has not coached a full season the last two years.Turnover city for the defenseThe Cardinals rode the right arm of C.J. Beathard to a win in the last matchup, and they could do it again. Beathard is a nice backup quarterback, but there’s a reason he’s a backup. The Arizona Cardinals since the preseason have feasted on below average starting quarterbacks. They’ll do it again on Sunday, because they have the talent to beat backups. I don’t know if that’s saying much, but it is something.Two reasons the Cardinals lose in Week 8Not enough timeLeftwich has been at the controls for 10 days鈥?it would not surprise if that’s not enough time to get the McCoy stench off. Let’s be completely honest, if Matt Breida doesn’t get hurt in their first matchup, it’s likely the 49ers win that first game. Why? The Arizona Cardinals offense is abysmal. Now, it may not be abysmal, but it may not be enough in sync to fix the problems http://www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com/george-kittle-jersey-authentic , overcome the bad offensive line and get on track in just 10 days.Giving up alreadyEveryone knows that Patrick Peterson requested a trade this week. What if he’s saying all the right things but not feeling it? What if he’s already looking beyond his time in the desert? If he’s doing it, could other players? That’s what the biggest question the Cardinals will have to answer. They already are the worst rushing defense in the NFL, and if Breida is healthy, the 49ers will have a great chance to gash them in the run game. If the 49ers can take the ball out of Beathard’s hands, it’ll be a win immediately for the 49ers. That could give the Cardinals problems and keep the season going in the wrong direction.

We’re near the midpoint of the 2018 NFL San Francisco 49ers
season and as I said in the first post I did on this:San Francisco 49ers are out of lives and continues. There are no coins to insert in continuing this either 49ers Alfred Morris Jersey , it’s time to look at a rooting guide for 2019 draft positioning. The 49ers right now share a single win with the New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, and Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals in particular will end that share on Sunday when the 49ers go to Arizona in their second game of the year. That leaves the Giants and Raiders in the way of draft dominance. The Giants continue to look awful while former coach Ben McAdoo looks like a football savant. Why? He’s the one who had the cojones to bench Eli Manning in 2017. While his method of doing so was ill-advised (and what cost him his job as head coach of the Giants), you have to admit his head was in the right place. The Giants recently made themselves the doormat of the Atlanta Falcons, a team that shared a single win with the 49ers until recently (running into the Giants helps this problem). If things end today, the Giants will have the No. 1 pick and that can be solidified in the Week 10 Monday Night Football matchup against the 49ers. The Raiders have had a fire sale of sorts after the Khalil Mack trade, shipping Amari Cooper off to the Dallas Cowboys for a first round draft pick. They have a game this week against the Indianapolis Colts, a game that can drive the Colts off from interfering in the first pick sweepstakes. The Raiders also decide things this Thursday as they will play the 49ers for Thursday Night Football in a battle for draft positioning. We’ll see where all these things go when the 49ers play the Cardinals. If the 49ers beat the Cardinals and then the Raiders on Thursday, you can kiss that first round pick goodbye (as you should, wins are much better for this team). Until then, the 49ers are in the thick of things. If they beat the Cardinals http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-marquise-goodwin-jersey , then the Raiders, and then the Giants, we’re talking about a pick in the top-10, rather than the top-3. Below are the games you should care about: Colts (2-5) at Raiders (1-5): Raiders — The 49ers will need to get some surplus wins on their opponents. Given that they face the Raiders four days later, it would be a lot better if the Raiders had an extra win under their belt. That’s asking an awful lot from a team not only devastated from injuries, but also trades. Washington (4-2) at Giants (1-6): Giants— Giants are bad. They need wins, given this is a divisional game, things could change in their favor. Washington got punked pretty bad a few weeks ago against the New Orleans Saints, so maybe the Giants can surprise. New England Patriots (5-2) at Buffalo Bills (2-5): Bills — The Bills are awful and need another win or two to be out of the first pick sweepstakes. Given that it’s New England, I wouldn’t be surprised if they get blown out. But still,go bills.Cleveland Browns (2-4-1) at Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2-1) : Browns — I don’t need to reiterate how the Browns always ruin plans for a team Cheap Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , any team in the NFL to have first pick in the draft.DeForest Buckner had a better day than Ndamukong Suh and Aaron Donald ... combined While the offense was less than stellar in the San Francisco 49ers Sunday loss to the Minnesota Vikings, there were still some great takeaways. One of the best is one DeForest Buckner who began his campaign for defensive player of the year. And he’s already ahead of his competition. In fact, he’s ahead of a couple great defensive players — even if you combine their stats. Combine the Monday Night Football stat lines for Los Angeles Rams defensive linemen Ndomakong Suh and Aaron Donald, and you get something that still doesn’t match Buckner’s performance against the Minnesota Vikings. Yes, the Vikings are not the Raiders. But the 49ers defensive line is not the Rams defensive line, and after paying Donald all that money (as well as getting Suh who is a force in his own right) you’d think the Rams defensive line would feast on the Raiders. Nah, just one sack. For Michael Brockers.This really wouldn’t be near as necessary to talk about if it wasn’t for the fact that Buckner got no respect at all in the offseason as one of the best defensive linemen in the league. Most of the time he went unmentioned. On that note, we’ll need to see how he does for another 15 games before we can really riot over his lack of attention. In any case, Buckner is off to a great start while the Rams defensive line is not.

Fooch’s update: An interesting theory related to
the smoke.Since opening in 2014 Levi’s stadium has been getting marred by its problems. A fan died of heat exhaustion 49ers Arik Armstead Jersey , those heat problems can’t be fixed, and at the forefront of it all is the field itself. It’s bad. Like, really bad. The 49ers have done everything they can from replacing the turf to the way they grow the grass and all it’s done is make things not as bad. But still bad. The proof is on Monday Night in the 49ers 27-23 loss to the New York Giants. One of the main story lines was the field itself and how the Giants simply couldn’t get footing on Levi’s slippery turf. 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens stumbled early in the game and Giants running back Saquon Barkley fell in the backfield several times before he could get any momentum. Something very un-Saquon Barkley like. They were mentioning on the broadcast that the Giants were switching out cleats because of the footing, but in the final minutes of the game, you could still see some slippage. It’s been almost five years. This shouldn’t be happening. Not only is the slippage infuriating for players, but it’s also dangerous. In 2015, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker slipped and could have twisted his ankle after stepping into a sinkhole during a kick. Given that the 49ers are dealing with enough injuries to make a full roster difficult, this could prove even more difficult in later years. How important are field conditions for player safety? Well, so dangerous that next week’s Monday Night Football game between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs, a game originally scheduled to be played in Mexico, is being moved back to Los Angeles. Why? Field conditions. If teams don’t have a choice when they have to come to Levi’s for away games, you can wonder if free agents are going to want to risk their ankles and knees on a slippery surface like this. Especially when it’s been almost five years and the 49ers still don’t have a solution.C.J. Beathard talks turnovers, running back pass catchers, George Kittle’s freakishness When you look back on the game Sunday and the turnovers, what do you do, what do you focus on moving forward to try to eliminate those?“Any way you can help, not having those turnovers happen, you work on and try to improve. Any little thing that can help, that’s what you try to work on.” Is it easy to do? Is it an easy fix?“Yeah, it’s not rocket science. It’s just little stuff. It’s a game of inches. One is when I step up in the pocket two inches more, the ball doesn’t get taken out of my hand. With the one interception off the end of [WR] Pierre’s [Gar莽on] hands, that’s a game of inches. Obviously the fourth-and-20, you’ve got to make a play. But, it’s nothing that can’t be fixed. It’s just little stuff.” When you look at the Packers defense, I assume you go back to the last few games of the season. Do you go back over the past few years? How far back would you go?“We watch most of everything from this year and then in games in the past when Atlanta has played them when [head coach] Kyle [Shanahan] was there. But, I mostly stick to stuff from this year.” You guys are a lot more efficient in your passes to the running back than you were last year, there were a lot of incompletions Cheap DeForest Buckner Jersey , drops. Can you account for that? Is it different personnel that’s more efficient in year two?“I think just obviously it’s the second year in the system, you’ll be more efficient in that sense of getting check downs, getting the balls to the backs. We’ve got a lot of trust in our running backs to put a lot of plays in their hands to where we expect them to get open and make plays and we trust those guys to do that. I think we’re just better there than we were last year at that position and I think it’s showing.” Does it require chemistry between you and those guys? RB Alfred Morris hasn’t even been here a month, but he’s caught every pass that’s gone his way so far.“Yeah, I think some of it is chemistry. When they’re number one in progression, definitely, around choice routes and such things. But, on those check downs, it’s kind of just being in the right spot and getting them the ball and turning a five-yard gain into a 10-yard gain.” From a quarterback’s perspective, what really stands out about Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ game to you?“He’s just a baller. That’s what he does. He’s got a crazy, crazy arm. He’s got the quickest release, craziest arm that I’ve ever seen. It just looks like he’s throwing a nerf ball out there. We all have a lot of respect for him.” One more question about the turnovers. You mentioned a couple of times that it’s a game of inches. Do you feel like it’s just bad luck that is happening or is it a product of a lack of carefulness or discipline?“I don’t know. I think a lot of it is luck. It’s just tough to say. Some of those things don’t happen, we’re not talking about it. I don’t think it’s discipline. I think we’re a disciplined team and stay on stuff like that. But, I would just say some of it is just unfortunate events that have happened.” Going into Lambeau field, such an historic venue, do you look forward to going in and playing a game at a place like that? What are some of the keys to have success going into a ruckus environment like that and maybe trying to keep the crowd not so much of a factor?“It’s definitely something to look forward to and a great opportunity for us. A Monday night game in Lambeau, historic stadium. We’re playing a great team. It’s everything you ask for. We’ve just got to go in and handle the noise, handle the crowd and go out and execute and try to take care of the ball and just do the little things right. I think if we do that and play well and our defense plays well, special teams, we can give ourselves a good chance.” Is there anything TE George Kittle has done this year as a pass catcher surprised you or did you know that when you guys were teammates back in Iowa?“That doesn’t surprise me. I always knew George had, he’s one of the most athletic dudes that I’ve known. He’s a freak athlete and I’ve always known that, even at Iowa. I think everyone that’s been around him knows that and so he hasn’t surprised me.” Is there anything that he did at Iowa that was particularly freakish?“We’d always test our vertical jumps and our 5-10-5 and our 10-yard sprints. He just blew everyone out of the water. He has the tight end records there. We’ve got a tight end in there now that’s pushing those records because he’s an athlete too, but George just blew everyone out of the water in those competitions and records for sure.” You’ve touched on how things are slower for you this year in terms of being able to go through and see things. I’m curious, when you were sitting and watching at the beginning of last year versus when you were sitting when QB Jimmy Garoppolo was playing, did the game look different to you, even then from the sideline after having that experience playing?“Yeah, I think so. I think just another offseason in the system http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-kyle-juszczyk-jersey , another camp in the system. Watching Jimmy’s first few games this year, even then, felt like it was slower and I could see things a little bit better. I would say definitely even then.” Are there any specific examples of something that you see and think, “Oh, this is way different than it was before?’“When you’re out there, I think even in the preseason, it just feels like things have slowed down. Your mind’s not going a thousand miles an hour like it was last year. You can feel defenses, feel rotations, feel pressures a lot easier. It’s just slowed down and you know where to get the ball and get it out of your hands.” A lot of quarterbacks say the difference from college to the NFL is that the windows are so much tighter. Is that the biggest thing to you or is there something else about transitioning in the quarterback role?“I think that’s a huge thing. The windows are a lot tighter. You’re playing a lot better players, but you’ve also got a lot better players on your team. So, that helps. But, I think more than anything it’s just learning a new offense as a new quarterback. That’s the toughest thing that any new quarterback is trying to deal with, learning a new offense and going out there and executing it and knowing where guys are going to be and what they’re going to be doing. I think that’s the biggest thing.” How challenging is it going out to practice today and you guys are going to be missing probably about seven, eight more would-be starters? What’s the harm in that in terms of setting up continuity?“Obviously it’s tough not having the guys that are going to be out there, out there with you practicing. But, it’s a great opportunity for the other guys to get in and get reps, like [WR] Richie James [Jr.] and guys like [WR Victor Bolden Jr.] Vic who haven’t been getting those reps, to get those reps and really get better chemistry with me and the team. So, it stinks, but at the same time, you take it as a positive and the guys that are getting the reps today will definitely get better from it.” How much does an X receiver benefit from having great speed and how much different is it when you have an X who isn’t WR Marquise Goodwin?“It’s different, for sure. Defenses definitely have to game plan for having a guy like Marquise in there. It changes your offense a little bit and what you want to do as a scheme, for sure. So, it’ll be nice to have him back this week.”

Welcome to a day off! The San Francisco 49ers played on Thursday

#11 liny195 » 14.01.2019, 06:57

Womens Jaquiski Tartt Jersey , beating the Oakland Raiders with ease. The team gets the weekend off, and returns to practice on Tuesday to prepare for their Week 10 Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants.The 49ers snapped a six-game losing streak and improved to 2-7 with the victory. It drops them in the draft order, but likely a boost to morale after a tough stretch. With the win, the 49ers drop to third in draft order for the time being. Here’s what the top of the draft order looks like:1. New York Giants (1-7, .513)2. Oakland Raiders (1-7, .552)3. San Francisco 49ers (2-7, .521)4. Buffalo Bills (2-6, .520)5. Arizona Cardinals (2-6, .549)6. Cleveland Browns (2-5-1, .562)The 49ers are not playing on Sunday, but plenty of us will be watching football. It’s actually a fairly limited schedule as far as impacting the 49ers draft positioning. The Giants and Cardinals have bye weeks. The Colts and Falcons were at two wins last week, but both won. Teams at three wins are not on the rooting guide for the time being since the 49ers are still a full game ahead of them in draft order.Bears (4-3) at Bills (2-6): Bills — Buffalo threw everything but the kitchen sink at New England on Monday. They hung close in the first half, but New England pulled away late. I would like to see Buffalo upset Chicago, but I think they come out flat and get thumped. Especially with Nathan Peterman headed out there!Chiefs (7-1) at Browns (2-5-1): Browns — This is an interesting one following the firing of Hue Jackson. Gregg Williams makes his debut as head coach, while Freddie Kitchens takes over as offensive coordinator. I think Cleveland could make this game interesting Youth Dustin Hopkins Jersey , but it would be a huge upset if they beat Kansas City. The San Francisco 49ers lost to the Los Angeles Rams by a final score of 39-10 in Week 8, and it was in fact the end result of a poor showing by san Francisco. However as with most NFL games there’s the story inside the score that gives a different complexion to the final score. Considering the Rams scored 24 points off Niner turnovers, a positive thinker such as myself sees the score as 15-10. Take nothing away from the Rams, they’re a great team. The Rams had a solid defensive plan and executed it. Our offense struggled to execute their plan and that was the turning point in the game. The glaring stat of the night was four total catches by the 49ers wide receivers for 35 yards. It almost seems mind boggling that number can be true for a team led by an offensive mind such as Kyle Shanahan. However, in reviewing the tape, there were several factors that led to such an underwhelming performance. Reason number one being number 99. Aaron Donald went off. Literally every passing play that I watched, if he was in the game, he was in C.J. Beathard’s hip pocket by the time he reached the top of his drop. He terrorized the offense the entire game. This prevented Beathard from getting to those outside progressions and deep routes that the team loves to run off of play action. By the time Beathard turned around after the run fake, Donald was in his face.Reason number two being the Rams defensive scheme. Given Donald’s interior dominance they rarely blitz and often rushed four and put seven in coverage. This created tight window throws on the outside, which just isn’t Beathard’s thing. They also bracketed Marquise Goodwin with two defenders. The Rams played coverage and simply dared the 49ers to run, and hit over the middle passes, which we did. George Kittle had a solid game with five catches 98 yards and a touchdown. Reason number three being C.J. Beathard. He’s still a young QB who doesn’t yet trust his eyes. One thing I love about Jimmy Garoppolo is his ability to throw with anticipation. That’s big boy football. Letting the ball go, throwing into an area where a receiver isn’t, is how the best QBs in the league make a living. Beathard hasn’t gotten there yet. While I think he has a good arm, and can make some big league throws Rookie Nick Mullens Jersey , he still struggles with hitting his back foot and letting it rip consistently. Let’s get into the film.Let’s start with the anticipation point to which I was referring. These next two clips are some examples of what I saw in the game. Now I’m not saying by any means that these throws are slam dunks. These are throws however that I’ve seen Jimmy and other top tier quarterbacks make. Our first clip shows Trent Taylor running a post deep over the middle. He’s not initially open, but the safety plays the route too shallow and susceptible to a pass over his head. Beathard doesn’t trust it, and while he runs for a nice gain, this is where I’d like to see him evolve.Another anticipation clip. Kendrick Bourne has a step on the route and again with an accurate touch pass, he can run into an open area. The throw takes anticipation however, because when Beathard reaches the top of his drop, he’s not necessarily open but given the position of the defenders and the speed at which Bourne is running, there’s an opening. Instead Beathard steps up, which isn’t a bad move, but then he doesn’t set his feet and throws an inaccurate pass over the middle which gets picked off.From what I saw, I believe Kyle adjusted to the Rams coverage tactics by using the wide receivers as decoys, he saw that they were getting focused on. Also the Rams linebacker corps could be considered the weak link in what is ultimately a stout defense. So, Shanahan used his receivers the clear out space and create open passes for his tight ends and running backs. In our first clip, you can see Goodwin attract three defenders, even one from the far opposite side of the field. This leaves Kittle in a wide open area for a big gain.Gar莽on runs a similar clear out route. Notice how he specifically runs right at the deep safety to keep him occupied Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , while Kittle runs free off the play action pass. It’s an effective concept and moving the pocket gave Beathard time to get off an accurate pass.Here’s another play where Gar莽on creates a decoy for Kittle to get open, but Beathard just misses the throw because of the pressure in his face. Kittle runs the wheel route and beats the linebacker. The deep safety bites on the short route by Gar莽on and almost gives up the big play. Beathard can’t properly step into the throw an actually steps on the foot of his offensive lineman as he releases the ball.Here’s another good play, where Gar莽on runs deep middle, and Goodwin runs a drag across the formation to clear out the defense for a screen pass Mostert runs for a good gain. Where was this play later on in the match up however?There were a few plays that the 49ers simply didn’t connect. Just like the tight end wheel route above that was open, but missed. Here’s an example. Beathard does a good job, of looking off the deep safety, but just misses Goodwin on the deep route. They normally have a great rapport on deep balls but it looks like Goodwin stumbled getting around the defender which caused him to be out of position for the throw and catch. Beathard threw it outside, Goodwin went inside.The main reason the 49ers couldn’t get anything going was this guy. Aaron Donald was simply unblockable. He often took on two offensive lineman and beat them both. The 49ers had no answer. He prevented any consistent deep routes, and often stopped the running game short. Not to mention, he himself caused a fumble and recovered it when Breida coughed it up early in the game. Anytime you end a play and two of your lineman are on the ground, and a third is hunched over in disappointment. It’s a bad play, and it was a bad day for that unit.In hindsight, the Rams have beat everyone they faced this season this way. However in context, we’ve turned the ball over against everyone we faced this season just the same. This week’s matchup versus the Arizona Cardinals gives the 49ers a small chance at redemption. Will the turnovers continue? I hope not. Can Kyle and Co finally put together a solid game offensively to match the defense which has quietly been improving week by week? I hope so. Go Niners!

The elegant tank is alive and well.
After the San Francisco 49ers made the Oakland Raiders look like a team Alabama could beat Cheap Fred Warner Jersey , they returned to their ways by blowing a lead and letting the New York Giants, who only had a single win before Monday night, win the game. It stings. It’s horrible. I said if the 49ers let Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. wake up that they would feel the effects. I certainly wasn’t wrong. The Giants offense found a way to stay on the field play after play, allowing time for Eli Manning to forget he’s Eli Manning. The 49ers would have won if...The defense could finish a game. I guess this goes with if the refs could keep their penalty flags in their pockets too, but I’ll get to that. Back to the defense, it found a way time and time again to keep the Giants offense on the field. If they could simply close a drive and let the offense run out the clock, they would have had this. Instead, stupid coverages like letting Ahkello Witherspoon go up against OBJ by himself (what the hell was that about?) and the once again awful pass rush showed the defense can’t close when it matters. The 49ers lost because...The officiating was trash. That’s no excuse for a game, blaming the officials, but there was some awful calls. Flopping is now in the NFL thanks to that George Kittle PI, OBJ held Sherman’s arm yet Sherman gets the flag, I can’t say I’m surprised by any of this. The final drive of the Giants was the worst with third and longs getting converted due to flags because of the 49ers either being knuckleheads or the NFL wanting to display its officiating. But the more pathetic thing is how many times the 49ers let themselves get into those situations. Flag for a first down? Third and long, only to get another flag to start all over—and this process was how the Giants scored. It was ridiculous and less on the officiating. It wasn’t one key call, it was several. You aren’t going to win when you keep committing mistakes 49ers Brock Coyle Jersey , no matter how trivial they may be. Beyond the officiating, the 49ers lost because the offense couldn’t execute in key moments. Marquise Goodwin (I hope he’s ok after those vicious head shots) had a ball he should have caught (I don’t care if it’s a late throw, that’s a ball you catch) that could have led to sustaining a drive. That said, Nick Mullens didn’t look awful, he had some mistakes but I’d venture to say he has a better skill set to run this offense than C.J. Beathard. Still, this game is not near as much on the offense as it is on the defense.Joe Staley, Richard Sherman appear to be the biggest question marks for Sunday Fooch’s update: Kyle Shanahan said on KNBR Friday morning that Joe Staley was in the weight room at 5:40 this morning working to get ready for practice.The San Francisco 49ers will hold their final practice of Week 5 Friday morning, after which we’ll get the final injury report. The 49ers have a lengthy injury report, but two players strike me as the biggest question marks for Sunday: left tackle Joe Staley and cornerback Richard Sherman.Staley suffered a knee injury this past Sunday, and has been a DNP each of the past two days. He worked on the side with the training stuff on Thursday, and if he got in a limited practice today, he could play on Sunday. But even then, he would likely be a game-time decision.Mike McGlinchey and Weston Richburg, on the other hand http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-k_waun-williams-jersey , were both back at practice on Thursday after a Wednesday DNP, and seem on track to play Sunday. If Staley is unable to play on Sunday, Garry Gilliam would get the start in his place, and Erik Magnuson would be the primary backup. Shon Coleman or Najee Toran would then be active if Staley was inactive.Sherman missed last week’s game with a calf injury. He was a DNP on Wednesday but then got in a limited practice session on Thursday. Prior to practice, Sherman met with the media and it was suggested he was not expected to play this week. Sherman said no, he would be back at practice on Thursday and they would take it from there. If he gets in another limited practice on Friday, he is likely to be listed as questionable for Sunday.Last week, Jimmie Ward and Ahkello Witherspoon started at the outside cornerback positions, and Greg Mabin eventually replaced Ward. If Sherman can go, one of those three would be starting opposite him and then we would likely see some rotation among them. If Sherman cannot go, we would likely see some combination of those three rotating into the secondary.

Joe Staley questionable
Cheap Solomon Thomas Jersey , Dante Pettis out this week The San Francisco 49ers dodged some significant injury bullets Sunday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Monday that Joe Staley is questionable this week with his knee injury, while Dante Pettis is out and will be week-to-week after that. It’s not ideal, but it could have been a lot worse.Shanahan offered some additional updates on the injury report. Right tackle Mike McGlinchey, center Weston Richburg, and wide receiver Marquise Goodwin are also listed as questionable. Richard Sherman is probably out this week, but they’ll see how he responds to treatment. One bit of good news is that the team expects Jaquiski Tartt back from his shoulder injury.The 49ers might get Adrian Colbert back in the starting lineup 49ers Jaquiski Tartt Jersey , but Shanahan wants to wait and see what the week shows. Colbert was healthy enough to play special teams last week, but Shanahan said he did not get enough defensive practice reps due to his hip injury, and so they went with D.J. Reed. Shanahan seemed to suggest Reed could still stake a claim to the job, but he said Colbert could get back into that role this week.The return of Tartt is an interesting one just given how well Antone Exum played in Week 4. He had some mistakes, but he opened the game with a pick-six and had some big plays on the ball throughout the game. The 49ers might find themselves with some really solid depth at strong safety after concerns when Tartt went down.The 49ers have been snake bit with injuries and it seems like every week it’s a new set of situations to deal with. This week it isn’t near as bad as it could have been. Dante Pettis being out for the season would hurt his promising development as a rookie and losing Joe Staley would be something on the level of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Instead, the 49ers will potentially get back Staley this week 49ers Mike Person Jersey , and Pettis will get some time to get his knee right. The San Francisco 49ers are apologizing for initially leaving Colin Kaepernick out of a photo gallery celebrating the team's history against the Green Bay Packers.The team posted dozens of photos on its website of past games against the Packers before the teams meet again Monday night without at first including any of Kaepernick.The team later added photos of Kaepernick. This is the first photo gallery the team has run this year but pictures of Kaepernick were included in all seven photo galleries posted on the team's website last year."Unfortunately there were a handful of obvious misses in this gallery posted by our website team and we appreciate them being brought to our attention," the team said in a statement. "The 49ers organization has tremendous respect and gratitude for the contributions Colin made to our team over the years."Kaepernick set an NFL record for quarterbacks by rushing for 181 yards in a playoff win against Green Bay on Jan. 12, 2013, threw for 413 yards in a season-opening win against the Packers in 2013, and led a winning drive to win a playoff game in Green Bay on Jan. 5, 2014."We have fond memories of those games and that should have been displayed on our website http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-weston-richburg-jersey ," the team said. "This oversight does not properly reflect the appreciation our ownership and this team have for Colin."The 49ers supported Kaepernick in 2016 when he decided to kneel during the national anthem to protest social and racial injustice and matched his $1 million contribution toward programs for social equality.Kaepernick opted out of his contract the following offseason when the 49ers told him they planned to cut him. Kaepernick has been unable to find another team to play for the past two seasons.Coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about bringing Kaepernick back after starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo went down with a season-ending knee injury and said he still didn't fit the team's offense."I made that decision just with the style of offense that we wanted to go with," Shanahan said on Sept. 24. "That's kind of what I said last year and it's kind of the same situation now. If you're thinking of if there'd be a different discussion now, I always look into what style of offense I want to do, what style of offense we've been doing for the last two years."

Giants quarterback Eli Manning knows something of comebacks.
It’s just been a while since he’s led one.Manning’s game-winning drive to lead the Giants over the 49ers was the 36th of his career New York Giants Hats , but just the second in the last two seasons.“It doesn’t get old,” Manning said, via Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. “It’s fun. It’s fun playing in those games, and having a two-minute drive to win it. Those are the situations you want to be in. You want to have a chance. Obviously, you’d love to have a two-score lead with a little time and run it out or whatnot, but you prepare and practice for those two-minute drives to go win football games.“To come through is exciting. And the team needs that. The defense needs that, to know that we can do that; offense, we needed that for ourselves, saying, ‘Hey, we can win.’ If we get close in games, we can go win football games. And we just had to do it.”Of course, beating the undermanned 49ers might not match up with other great comebacks in his personal history, but it will help him keep the calls for his starting job at bay, at least for a week. Coach Pat Shurmur was blunt last week, promising him only this week and making it clear the elder quarterback needed to play better.But his teammates knew he had it in him, even the young ones.“After we went and scored, I came back on the sideline and was like, ‘Man, you been doing this since I was like 12 New York Giants Hoodie ,'” 21-year-old running back Saquon Barkley said. “That’s Eli. When he’s in those moments, he’s a heck of a player.“When you’re around him you know why. When you’re young and you’re watching TV you’re like, ‘Wow. He’s just making those plays.’ But his craft that he works on. Such a smart player. Such a hard worker 鈥?on and off the field. In these positions he just thrives.”At least this week, and at least against the 49ers. Good morning, New York Giants fans! No players got traded while you slept, but some Giants certainly could be moved before Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline. Let’s look at some of the headlines while we wait to see if any real action takes place.Worst team in the NFL?Olivier Vernon, one of the players about whom there is trade speculation, was asked directly if it felt like he played for the league’s worst team.“Not at all, but our record is what our record is,” Vernon said.” We can’t say anything but that our record is 1-7 right now.”Seven sacks? Seriously?Eli Manning was sacked seven times on Sunday and has now been sacked 31 times. At that pace, he would be sacked 62 times over 16 games. The most he has ever been sacked in a season is 39 times. What did Manning think of the sacks on Sunday?“Each one has its own story. Some of them were coverage things, some of them were getting beat and some were that I have to do a better job getting the ball out,” he said. “Each one has its own reason.”About that killer interceptionManning, of course, was asked to explain the red zone interception by D.J. Swearinger on a throw intended for Odell Beckham Jr.“Just missed him. Thought Odell was going to be able to run by him and the guy passed him off better than I thought,” Manning siad. “I thought he might run with the corner route. He came off right away and drove on it. I thought Odell was going to go get by him. Bad decision by me.”Odell has no answersThe Giants are now 28th in the league in scoring at 18.8 points per game. That is largely because they are 31st in the league in red zone touchdowns, getting in only 40 percent of the time. “I don’t have an answer for that [why the Giants can’t score],” Beckham said. “It doesn’t make sense. I feel like we should be doing better and we’re not. This is where we’re at. When we get down in the red zone, we have to score.”Saquon still believesRookie running back Saquon Barkley hasn’t tossed in the towel on the 2018 season.“I said before, it sucks that we’re losing. Obviously Cheap Customized New York Giants Jerseys , I’m a competitor, we’re all competitors in this locker room, and we hate losing. I know you lose more in the NFL, because you definitely play a lot more games, but I guess you can say I’m disappointed, I’m upset, we’re all upset,” Barkley said. “We’re 1-7 right now. It’s not where we want to be. We know we’re much better than our record. That’s not where we’re at right now. We just got to find a way to do better.”Barkley still thinks the Giants can turn things around over the final eight games.“I don’t feel like there’s enough in this room to get ourselves out this situation, I know there is, and I truly, truly believe that. I believe in this team. I believe in this offense. I believe in every single player on our team,” he said. “I know we got the talent. I know we got the coaching staff. At the end of the day, it comes down to finishing drives and executing, and that’s what we haven’t been doing.”Around the Inter-GoogleGiants must prepare Kyle Lauletta to take Eli Manning's placePat Shurmur must elevate rookie Kyle Lauletta to No. 2 and let him get enough first-team reps to be able to function comfortably, sooner rather than later.Giants offensive line left Eli Manning unacceptably unprotectedKhalil Mack wasn’t rushing the quarterback.

Panthers kicker Graham Gano hit a 63-yard field goal to win the game. Let’s take a look at what the players are saying following the tough loss. Landon Collins on how the Giants locker room is dealing with Odell Beckham’s comments from earlier this week...“I don’t know what comments you guys are talking about,” Collins said. “I didn’t hear about them, but when Odell [Beckham] came to talk to us, he spoke from the heart, he talked gratefully, and we knew where he was coming from. We knew he was coming from the heart, so you know he’s a great teammate, a great guy, a great person and a leader. This offense, this team, we have to look up to him, so we knew where he was coming from.”Panthers quarterback Cam Newton on Gano’s game-winning kick...“I am happy that we got a kicker like that,” Newton said. “A wise man once told me that a great quarterback is only as good as his kicker. Over the years you see so many quarterbacks get bailed out by the kickers. I shouldn’t say bailed out, I’ll just say helped out and Graham put the whole team on his back today. Well, on his toe today.”Gano on the reaction on the field following his game-winning kick...“That was madness,” Gano said. “That’s the only word I can use to explain it. I just don’t think it’s hit me yet. I was going nuts. I think the first thing I saw was Mike (Palardy) reacting that it went in because I couldn’t really see over those giants in front of us – not the other team, just our offensive lineman. But I just have no words for it.”Saquon Barkley on the on the go-ahead touchdown...“At the moment, it felt great,” Barkley said. “We wanted to go down and find a way to score and put seven on the board. We needed seven on the board. Coach, the offensive coordinator and the whole offensive staff called great plays and put us in great positions to get into the end zone. We found a way to get into the end zone. Like I said, Carolina came up with a 63-yard field goal. I don’t know what else you can say about that. We played our butt off and you have to give credit where credit is due. They made a 63-yard field goal and won the game.“Beckham on regretting any comments criticizing head coach, Pat Shurmur and teammates...“I don’t regret anything http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-ray-ray-armstrong-jersey , I don’t regret anything that I said,” Beckham said. “If it took that for us to come together as a team like we did today, I can take that every single time. I spoke to the team just to kind of relay the message that sometimes stuff comes off the wrong way. Words can be portrayed in any kind of light. The conversation is between us. But the way we responded as a team to what was said, I felt like it would’ve been too easy after what was said, and after what I said to them for us to come in here and have heart, energy and all that stuff. Grit, whatever the words you want to use for that. We had it today, and we came up short, but I’m proud of this team, and this is the team that we are going to be for the rest of the season. Like I said, if it took that to get us going, I can take that. I’m trying to be a leader, I’m in a position I’ve never been in. I’m trying to grow, I’m learning on the way, on the fly, but I’m proud of where we went today. We gave it our all, we came against adversity, calls here and there. We can never rely on the referees to win the game, but there was calls here and there that were questionable or this and that, but we kept fighting, kept fighting, and kept fighting. That’s all I could ask for.”

The New York Giants will reportedly be signing receiver
and return specialist Quadree Henderson to their practice squad.Henderson was originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of Pitt by the Pittsburgh Steelers after the 2018 NFL Draft. Henderson was generally considered the second-best return specialist in the 2018 draft http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-curtis-riley-jersey , behind Dante Pettis. In three years at Pitt, Henderson had 73 kickoff returns for 1,942 yards (26.6 per return) and four touchdowns. He also returned punts, beginning in his sophomore year, with his 37 career returns going for 495 yards (13.4 per return), and another three touchdowns. 11 of his 37 returns went for 15 or more yards. Henderson is undersized at 5-foot-8 Rhett Ellison Jersey , 192 pounds, but he has a no-nonsense return style and shows no hesitation in the face of kick or punt coverage. He is also a solid athlete, running between 4.40 and 4.50 seconds in the 40 yard dash as well as solid performances in the 3-cone, short shuttle, and broad jump. He also has some utility as a ‘gadget’ player on offense, with nearly 9.2 yards per carry on rushing attempts and 11 yards per catch as a receiver. Most of those yards came on sweeps and screens Cheap Landon Collins Jersey , but he is dangerous with the ball in his hands.The Giants had an interest in Henderson dating back to before the draft, hosting him for a pre-draft visit, as well as a workout following the final cut-down after the fourth preseason game. The Giants are averaging a league-worst 3.0 yards on punt returns and are 24th in kickoff returns at 19.6 yards per attempt.The Giants’ offense needs all the help it can get as it searches for an identity, and it might just be a matter of time before Henderson is promoted to the 53-man roster.Giants-Saints, Week 4: Live updates, score Cheap B.J.

For any New England Patriots wanting to say
hello Sunday to former teammate Danny Amendola Cheap Dont'a Hightower Jersey , they most likely can find him running over the middle.But they already knew that. That's where Amendola made his living for five seasons with the Patriots, and that's where he has made an impact so far with his new team, the Miami Dolphins.The veteran receiver faces his former team this week and said he's excited to return to Foxborough, although he's not sure what form the reunion will take."They have a lot of great people there," Amendola said. "I can't sit down and talk to all of them. I'm going to just focus on the game, and whoever I get to hit or handshake, that's fine with me."He'll likely be hit, too. Amendola's hallmark is pass patterns over the middle, where he willingly exposes his 5-foot-11, 190-pound frame to jarring blows.He has been effective that way for the surprising Dolphins, leading them with 11 receptions. While he has totaled only 100 yards, he has drawn attention and opened up the flanks to speedier receivers Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant.As a result Cheap Rob Gronkowski Jersey , Ryan Tannehill ranks third in the NFL in yards per attempt, and the Dolphins this week have a chance at their first 4-0 start since 1995.Tannehill loves Amendola's contribution to the offense, and his willingness to work between the hash marks."It's huge," Tannehill said. "To have the confidence and the bravery — I don't know the politically correct word to use here — to stand in there and make those catches in tight windows, knowing that you're going to take some punishment afterward, is huge. Some guys can't do it, but if you look at Danny, he's a guy who has done it for his whole career and continues to do it. So, yes, it's awesome to have. It definitely keeps the chains moving for us."Miami coach Adam Gase wanted to improve the culture of his team after going 6-10 last year. So the Dolphins parted with high-maintenance receiver Jarvis Landry and signed Amendola to a $12 million, two-year deal.With 13 postseason games and two Super Bowl rings on his resume, Amendola has brought to Miami the anticipated intangibles, Gase said."Just seeing him every day in meetings doing things the way that he does them http://www.patriotscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-jeremy-hill-jersey , and the intensity that he brings, and everything he does has been great for our guys to witness," Gase said. "He has been a positive influence."Stills agreed."It takes a lot of heart and courage to go across the middle and take some of the hits he has taken throughout his career," Stills said. "That energizes a group. It makes our group stronger. That's a high bar he sets for the rest of us."If it annoys Amendola that the Patriots didn't re-sign him, he's won't say so. Instead, he said his years with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick provided a lasting education."Some of the things I learned there I'll carry with me forever," Amendola said. "What I've learned most is how to prepare for a game, what goes into the weekly routine leading into a game. I'm just using my preparation skills against them now."When asked if Dolphins coaches picked his brain this week about the Patriots' system, Amendola said: "They're smart."Amendola's smart, too, and knows better than to gloat about the struggling Patriots (1-2) trailing his new team in the AFC East standings."It's early in the season," he said. "Everybody in the whole league is trying to figure some things out and trying to get moving, including us."The Dolphins have already figured out they can get moving by throwing over the middle to Amendola. For the second straight year http://www.patriotscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-phillip-dorsett-jersey , the Patriots gave tight end Rob Gronkowski a contractual adjustment that hinges exclusively on playing and producing. Which means that, if he can’t play and/or produce, he won’t make the money.The news that Gronk didn’t fly with his teammates to Chicago and could miss Sunday’s game against the Bears due to ankle and/or back injury will impact his earnings, in two ways. First, he won’t earn this week’s $62,500 installment toward a $1 million roster bonus premised on being on the active roster for every game. Second, he’ll have a harder time reaching the thresholds for his $3.3 million incentive package.He can make the $3.3 million by hitting any three of these four performance triggers:聽80 percent playing time; 70 catches; 1,085 receiving yards; and/or nine touchdowns.Gronkowski currently is on pace for just under 70 catches and just under 1,085 receiving yards. He has only one touchdown through six games.To fall below 80-percent playing time, Gronkowski would have to miss several games. But if he just misses one or two games he may hit only the playing-time incentive, making $1.1 million but leaving $2.2 million on the table.It’s unclear how Gronkowsk was injured; late in Sunday’s 43-40 win over the Chiefs, Gronkowski made a game-deciding catch to put the Patriots in chip-shot field goal range.

As we head into Week 10 of the NFL season, we’re taking our first look at the playoff picture, and the top two teams have separated themselves from the pack.The Chiefs are the top team in the conference Cheap Deatrich Wise Jr. Jersey , but the Patriots are only a game behind and have the head-to-head tiebreaker.

Kansas City (8-1): Owns a one-game lead in the conference and a 1.5-game lead in the division.2. New England (7-2): The Patriots appear destined to get their usual bye week. 3.

Baltimore (4-5): John Harbaugh may need a winning streak and a playoff berth to save his job.10. Jacksonville (3-5): The Jaguars currently own the tiebreaker over the Colts, based on having a better record in common games.11. Indianapolis (3-5): The Colts look like they could go on a run over the second half of the season, but will it be enough to catch the Texans?12. N.Y.

Patriots bring in three players for free
agency workouts http://www.patriotscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-jeremy-hill-jersey , including ex-Steelers quarterback Landry Jones The New England Patriots are always looking for ways to improve their roster and preparing for any and all eventualities is a big part of that. As a result, the team regularly hosts free agency workouts to keep its emergency lists up to date and to have potential candidates quickly available when the need arises. Yesterday, New England brought in three more such players – they are unlikely to get signed anytime soon, but could serve as valuable call-ups in case the team has to add depth at their respective positions.CB David AmersonA second-round pick by the Washington Redskins in 2013, David Amerson has not yet found a long-term home in the NFL. The N.C. State product spent the first two years of his career in Washington before getting released early during the 2015 season. The 6’1, 205 lbs cornerback was subsequently claimed off waivers by the Oakland Raiders, who quickly made him a starter and later signed him to a four-year, $35 million contract. Just two years into his deal, however, he was let go again. Coming off a season-ending foot injury, he joined the Kansas City Chiefs but was let go again during early September’s roster cutdowns.WR Dontrelle InmanAn undrafted free agent in 2011, it took until 2014 for Dontrelle Inman to join an NFL team’s active roster: the San Diego Chargers added the former CFL standout and he was able to make the 53-man squad in his first year with the team. The 6’3, 200lbs wideout established himself as a valuable rotational receiver for the Chargers and caught 107 passes for 1,463 yards and seven touchdowns before getting traded to the Chicago Bears midway through the 2017 season. The 29-year old was a productive rotational player in Chicago as well but was not re-signed after the years. He had been on the open market ever since.QB Landry JonesAfter having served as Ben Roethlisberger’s primary backup for the last five seasons, the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to release Landry Jones during roster cuts earlier this month – his spot had been taken over by rookie Mason Rudolph. Before being let go, the former fourth-round draft pick appeared in a combined 20 games for the team – starting five, including a 2016 meeting with the Patriots – and completed 110 passes on 174 attempts for 1 http://www.patriotscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-phillip-dorsett-jersey ,321 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are universally regarded as two of the best quarterbacks of their generation.Brady has spent the better part of his 19 seasons in the NFL eclipsing virtually every milestone set by his predecessors. Along the way, he's captured every major piece of hardware the league has to offer from multiple MVPs to Super Bowl titles, all while remaining at the top of his game at 41.Rodgers isn't as decorated as Brady, but has been just as celebrated during his 14-year career for a free-wheeling style and an uncanny ability to pull off plays that have been rarely duplicated by his peers.Between them, they have five regular-season MVP awards, nine Super Bowl appearances and six Super Bowl rings.Yet when the Patriots host the Packers on Sunday night , it will mark just the second time that the future Hall of Famers have squared off as starting quarterbacks. Rodgers won the first meeting in 2014 in a game in which they combined for 613 passing yards and four touchdowns in Green Bay's five-point victory at Lambeau Field.Rodgers capped that season by winning his second regular-season MVP trophy. Brady went on to hoist his fourth Super Bowl title.Watching each other's success from afar has bred a deep respect between them. Rodgers for Brady's longevity. Brady for the skillset Rodgers brings to the position."Tom's been at the top of his game for over a decade," Rodgers said. "Obviously, we play a little bit different style of game, but the stuff that he does well is stuff that over my career I've tried to incorporate into my own game."I enjoy competing against great players and obviously Tom is right at the top."It's similar to how Brady describes Rodgers."What he's done as a quarterback, I think it is inspiring even for me," Brady said. "I watch his game and it makes me want to get out there and practice and improve because I think he's so phenomenal with the way he manages himself in the pocket and his ability to throw the football is unlike anyone probably in the history of the league."Though he wants to play until he's 45, Brady will presumably retire before Rodgers, leaving the 34-year-old time to narrow the gap between them in career numbers.But neither is interested in playing the hypothetical game about who the better quarterback is."I don't really try to get into the 'what-if' game," Rodgers said. "I'm fortunate to have been drafted here and sit behind Brett (Favre) for three years. He was obviously drafted late there ... so his chip might have been a little bit bigger than mine starting out his career."There's a lot of pride in that legacy part of your career, and I think him and I both feel the same way about our organizations."Brady also called any similar debate about the greatest quarterback of all-time a fruitless endeavor. Though he knows one name that belongs on his list."It's hard to compare positions and eras. It's impossible to answer Womens Stephon Gilmore Jersey ," Brady said. "I think Aaron is one of the best ever to play the game. He's got every skill you need to be a great quarterback."Here are some things to watch for in Sunday's game:MILESTONE WATCHBrady enters Sunday's game second in NFL history for the most combination passing, rushing and receiving yards in the regular-season and playoffs. Peyton Manning tops the list with 79,978 yards. Brady is next with 79,781.SAFETY DANCEThe trade of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix means that the Green Bay Packers are without a five-year starter at safety .Clinton-Dix, who led the team with three interceptions, was the most experienced player at a position that was still mired by inconsistency. Possible replacements include Jermain Whitehead, who missed practice at midweek with a back injury; or Josh Jones, a second-year player who missed time earlier this year with an ankle injury. Veteran cornerback Tramon Williams also has a couple games of experience playing safety while with the Browns a couple years ago. Cornerback Bashaud Breeland appears to be getting healthier from a hamstring injury and might be ready to play. The Packers didn't acquire players at the trade deadline, a sign that general manager Brian Gutekunst might like the depth in the secondary even without Clinton-Dix.COMING A LONG WAYDavante Adams was a rookie the last time these teams played in 2014 at Lambeau Field. That 26-21 win by the Packers was a milestone game for Adams, now Green Bay's No. 1 receiver.Adams had six catches for 121 yards in the game, taking advantage of more targets after the Patriots elected to blanket then-top wideout Jordy Nelson. Now the roles might be reversed, and Adams could be the player who gets extra attention. If that's the case, it won't be much different from what Adams has faced all year. Adams has had at least 132 yards receiving in each of the last three games.AP Sports Writer Genaro Armas in Green Bay, Wisconsin, contributed to this report.Follow Kyle Hightower on Twitter at ://khightower

Don't blame Ty for the tie.Browns coach Hue Jackson
defended starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor on Monday as Cleveland's players Cleveland Browns Womens Hoodie , coaches and fans digested how a season opener that could have ended with the team's first win since 2016 turned into a painful 21-21 draw against the Pittsburgh Steelers — the NFL's first Week 1 tie in 47 years.Of course, because this is Cleveland, where quarterback criticism is passed down through generations, much of the postgame blame was directed at Taylor, who completed just 15 of 40 passes, got sacked seven times and missed a few open receivers in his first start for the Browns.But despite Taylor's struggles, Jackson crushed any speculation he's ready to turn his offense over to rookie Baker Mayfield anytime soon."He is the quarterback," Jackson said of Taylor.Jackson stiffened when he was asked what kind of leash he intends to have on Taylor, who was acquired in March from Buffalo and will start until the Browns feel the No. 1 overall pick Mayfield is ready."Leash?" Jackson said. "We are trying to win. His job is to get the offense to play the best that it can play, but it takes more than just him. I know the sentiment I am getting here is that it is him. It is not."It is the offensive unit as a whole. Got to play better. Whether that is newness or whatever it is, I do not want to get caught up in all of that."Taylor had moments of indecisiveness Sunday Womens Customized Cleveland Browns Jerseys , but that may have had as much to do with Pittsburgh's pass rush and an offense with several new faces, including rookie left tackle Desmond Harrison.But while supporting his QB, Jackson acknowledged that Taylor underthrew receiver Josh Gordon on a potential big play and he needs to be more accurate."Improve, complete the ball," Jackson said when asked what Taylor needs to do for the Browns to win on Sunday at New Orleans."Complete the ball. Complete the ball. I mean we have got to play better offensively, it is not just him. We have got to play better around him. He has to play better. We have to play better as an offensive unit."We did not play very well yesterday, let's just be honest. We need to play better."It's almost inconceivable the Browns didn't win.Coming off a 0-16 season, they became the first team not to win with a plus-5 turnover differential or better since Arizona was beaten at Atlanta in 2012. And, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, teams with a plus-5 turnover differential or better are 132-4-1 since 1999.The beleaguered Browns have two of those losses and now the tie.For now, Taylor has the team's unwavering support. But it will be interesting to see if that commitment can withstand another subpar performance or two.One of the knocks on Taylor in Buffalo was that he often missed throws he should have completed Baker Mayfield Jersey Elite , and that he was afraid to attempt passes over the middle.Jackson wouldn't pinpoint Taylor's problems in the opener — he led the team in rushing and ran for a TD — but made it clear the 28-year-old had better step up his game."Not good enough," Jackson said. "What I am also saying in there is that it is not all him. Sometimes guys got to be in the right spot. Protection has to hold up for him. All of those things in a passing game make a difference. It is not just him. Does he have to do his job better? Yes. I think everyone around him has to do their job better, too."NOTES: Jackson said a "miscommunication" resulted in Gordon starting Sunday after the coach had vehemently expressed there would be consequences for the receiver missing three-plus weeks of training camp to address his sobriety. But on Cleveland's first play, Gordon lined up wide in a three-tight end personnel package. "The game's over with now, so to talk about it, what's it going to do? Nothing," said Jackson, who has turned play calling over to coordinator Todd Haley this season. "I've dealt with it. We move on." Gordon played 68 snaps, but was only targeted three times. His only catch was a game-tying touchdown in the fourth quarter. Cleveland Browns fans may have missed it amid the news of the Josh Gordon trade, but the team added another wide receiver to the roster on Monday. The club signed Rod Streater, who originally entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2012 with the Oakland Raiders. The team announced the transaction on its website.Streater had two respectable seasons his first two years with the Raiders http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/baker-mayfield-jersey , catching a total of99 passes for 1,472 yards and seven touchdowns, while appearing in all 32 games. Things went downhill from there, however, as Streater landed on injured reserve with a broken foot after two games in 2014, then missed training camp in 2015 with an undisclosed illness. That limited his production for his final two years in Oakland to just 10 receptions for 94 yards.The Raiders let Streater leave in free agency and he landed with the San Francisco 49ers for the 2016 season. He appeared in 16 games for the 49ers, but only recorded 18 receptions for 191 yards and two touchdowns. It was just a one-year stop in San Francisco for Streater as he then moved onto the Buffalo Bills as a free agent. It appeared that Streater had a roster spot locked up for 2017, but a toe injury suffered in the preseason wiped out the campaign for Streater. The Bills brought him back this summer, but Streater was unable to win a roster spot among one of the league’s worst wider receiver groups, as Streater could not beat out the likes of Ray-Ray McCloud III, Robert Foster Authentic Baker Mayfield Jersey , Andre Holmes, Zay Jones and the since-released Jeremy Kerley. When we last saw Streater, he was catching a touchdown pass from Josh Allen against the Cleveland Browns in the preseason.Streater’s role with the Browns is unclear at this point as Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins are the top three wide receivers. Add in tight end David Njoku and running back Duke Johnson, once he gets on track, and there may not be enough passes left for Streater. If he wants playing time, Streater may have to focus on special teams, an area he is more than willing to do, as he told billswire.com over the summer:Streater may not have much to give on the field, but showing a team-first attitude will at least help set him apart from the player whose roster spot he is replacing.

AFC North Roundup: September 27

#12 liny195 » 14.01.2019, 11:05

White Darren Fells Jersey , 2018 It’s Week 4, and after Sunday the season will be a quarter of the way through. With no clear dominant squad in the AFC North, the serious part of the season is about to get underway. The main matchup in the division this week is Sunday night’s contest between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, but the Cincinnati Bengals also have a test ahead in the Atlanta Falcons. While all eyes will be on Baker Mayfield’s first NFL start against the Oakland Raiders this week, the rest of the division is also worth attention. Here’s what’s going on in Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Cincinnati.Baltimore Ravens: After years of struggling to find footing on offense, the Baltimore Ravens might have finally built up that side of the ball enough to make it among the best in the league. Baltimore Beatdown’s Jacob Loque details just how the Ravens offense “has gotten off to their most promising start in years.Looking to Sunday, Vasilis Lericos breaks down the five key matchups for the Ravens against the Steelers. And Logan Levy has the Ravens’ latest injury update, which includes the return of rookie tight end Hayden Hurst to the practice field. Pittsburgh Steelers: The Steelers are three-point home favorites over the Ravens on Sunday night, reports Behind the Steel Curtain’s Simon Chester. But the more interesting of the Vegas lines is the over/under point total. At 51 points http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-trevon-coley-jersey , this is the highest opening over/under in the history of the teams’ rivalry.One key to a Steelers win on Sunday will be the involvement of now-healthy tight end Vance McDonald. Shannon White further makes the case that McDonald will be integral to the Steelers’ success throughout the season—but only if he can stay healthy. Another is finding a way to stabilize the secondary, and Nick Farabaugh’s answer is to start Cameron Sutton at cornerback alongside Joe Haden, rather than Artie Burns or Coty Sensabaugh.Cincinnati Bengals: It’s just three games into his second season, but Bengals receiver John Ross hasn’t yet looked like a first-round draft pick. With five receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown, Cincy Jungle’s John Sheeran wonders if it’s time to write him off or to give him more time before he’s branded the dreaded “bust.”Matt Minich takes to the film to illustrate how the Bengals offense can get the better of the Atlanta Falcons and their injury-ravaged defense on Sunday. One thing that will certainly help is receiver A.J. Green. Green suffered a pelvis injury in Week 3 but was able to practice on the rehab field on Wednesday, per Jason Marcum. Initially thought to be a long-shot to play in Week 4, it’s now possible Green will suit up against Atlanta. The Browns are back at home this week to take on the Chiefs in Week 9. Here are some nuggets about Sunday’s contest, as well as how you can watch or listen to the game.Game InformationGame Time/Date: Sunday, November 4, 2018 at 1:00 PM ETLocation: FirstEnergy Stadium Youth Denzel Ward Jersey , Cleveland, OHTV Channel: CBS - Greg Gumbel (play-by-play), Trent Green (analyst), Bruce Arians (analyst)Local Radio: 92.3 The Fan (WKRK-FM), ESPN 850 WKNR, WNCX (98.5 FM)Online streaming: FuboTVWeather: 52 degrees (feels like 48). 0% chance of precipitation, 13 MPH wind from the Southeast.Odds: Chiefs by 9 points.Over/under: 52.5The areas in BLUE will get to watch the game live, per 506sports:UniformThe Browns’ Twitter account says the team will wear brown jerseys against the Chiefs.Interesting Stats / NotesQB Baker Mayfield - By throwing multiple touchdowns, will have done so in four games this season, tying Tim Couch (1999) for the second most by a Browns rookie in a season.DE Myles Garrett - With at least one sack http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-joe-schobert-jersey , will have 16 in his first 20 career games, tying for the seventh most in the category in league history.The Browns’ defense has improved its -28 2017 turnover ratio to a league-best +11.ConnectionsBrowns General Manager John Dorsey served in the same capacity with Kansas City from 2013-16. During that span, the Chiefs had the fourth-highest winning percentage in the NFL (.672), recorded at least nine wins all four seasons, drafted three players to make the Pro Bowl as rookies and earned three playoff berths.

Johnny Manziel started, but was only 13-of-32 in completions. Manziel did run 11 times for 108 yards. The Browns were down 17-3 at the half and pitched a second-half shutout 10-0, but that wasn’t enough to complete the comeback. Custom Houston Texans Jerseys

49ers injuries lead to drastic changes in Week 3 snap count

#13 liny195 » 26.01.2019, 09:02

The San Francisco 49ers lost Jimmy Garoppolo to a potentially devastating knee injury in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs Youth Weston Richburg Jersey , but that was also just one of several notable injuries on both sides of the roster. It reflects extensive in the latest snap count, which is posted below. You can also view the gamebook PDF.The big change obviously was Garoppolo. He went down with a knee injury on what would prove to be the penultimate offensive snap of the game. C.J. Beathard came on for a snap and appeared to throw a touchdown pass to George Kittle. An offensive pass interference call negated it, and while Beathard did not get a pass attempt out of it, he did get the snap.A second problem was in the secondary. Adrian Colbert injured his hip and Richard Sherman injured his calf, and neither returned. Colbert was replaced by D.J. Reed, while Richard Sherman was replaced by Ahkello Witherspoon — Jimmie Ward had started in place of Witherspoon. Of course, Ward then suffered an injury of his own (cramping) and was replaced by Tarvarius Moore. At one point, the 49ers starting secondary was Moore http://www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com/pierre-garcon-jersey-authentic , Witherspoon, Reed, and Antone Exum (starting in place of an inactive Jaquiski Tartt).Sherman is getting an MRI on his calf, and that can be a tricky injury. He had some issues with his heel earlier in the week, and it would not be surprising if this calf injury is related. We’ll find out more with the MRI, but there is a good chance the 49ers will be going further down the depth chart at cornerback.There is some notable non-injury news. Linebacker Malcolm Smith, signed a year and a half ago, finally made his debut for the 49ers. The team went with a new look Womens Jaquiski Tartt Jersey , playing Smith at SAM over Mark Nzeocha. Smith handled the SAM role exclusively, while Nzeocha was relegated to strictly special teams work. Reuben Foster left the game for one snap when he got the wind knocked out of him, but otherwise, he and Fred Warner were the exclusive starting LB tandem in sub packages.49ers snap count vs. Chiefs, Week 3PlayerOffenseDefenseSTPlayerOffenseDefenseST The NFL has just about wrapped up Week 8 action, with the Buffalo Bills hosting the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football to close it out. The two-win Bills are in the thick of the race for the top pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, while the Patriots will look to continue their run toward another AFC East title.We’re back once again with a look at NFL standings from a couple different perspectives. We’ll be breaking down the draft order, since the San Francisco 49ers are firmly in the mix for the top pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. We will also break down the playoff picture since most of us will pay at least passing interest in the playoffs come January.2019 NFL Draft orderIt was another ugly loss for the 49ers. They looked set to snap their losing streak Youth Dustin Hopkins Jersey , leading the Arizona Cardinals 15-3 early the fourth quarter. Instead, they gave up a pair of touchdowns to close out the game, and lost 18-15 — dropping to 1-7 in the process. It was not surprising they lost, but it was an embarrassing one once again.Meanwhile, the New York Giants lost 20-13 to Washington to drop to 1-7 as well. They hold the edge over the 49ers due to strength of schedule. The 49ers and Giants square off in two weeks on Monday Night Football.Elsewhere in the Bay area, the Oakland Raiders lost to the Indianapolis Colts to drop to 1-6 on the season. The 49ers and Raiders square off in three days on Thursday Night Football. The TNF games have been a mixed bag, and this week is decidedly the short end of the stick, with draft implications the order of the day.1. New York Giants (1-7 — .508)2.

The Saints improved to 6-1 with the win and remain a game up on the Carolina Panthers in the NFC South.Meanwhile, the NFC North has a traffic jam up top. The Chicago Bears improved to 4-3 with a 24-10 win over the New York Jets, and now hold the divisional lead over 4-3-1 Minnesota. 3-3-1 Green Bay is right behind them, followed by 3-4 Detroit. It is anybody’s race for the time being.The Los Angeles Rams got the other big win of the week, remaining undefeated with a 29-27 victory over the Green Bay Packers. It looked like the Packers might spring the upset, but a late Ty Montgomery kickoff fumble cost Aaron Rodgers a chance to drive them into field goal range. The Rams improved to 8-0 with the win.It was a mostly quiet day for the AFC. The Kansas City Chiefs got an important home win over the Denver Broncos, but there were not many big matchups on the day.The Vikings host the Lions in Week 9 in a big NFC North matchup. The Seattle Seahawks host the Los Angeles Chargers in an unexpectedly big inter-conference matchup.

Remember when Matt Breida was signed as a UDFA
running back for the San Francisco 49ers in 2017? I do. I remember looking at him www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com , the recently drafted Joe Williams, and promising Carlos Hyde and saying, “camp body.” But then he outplayed everyone (except for Hyde) and word came out that the 49ers were high on him through training camp. Next thing you know, he’s not just splitting carries with Hyde, he’s outplaying Hyde. At the end of the season, Breida was kept and Hyde was not re-signed. The 49ers went with Jerick McKinnon as the featured back, but you knew Breida had something. Then McKinnon blew out his knee. The 49ers signed Alfred Morris, but it didn’t take long for it to become Breida’s backfield, and there’s no way anyone is wrenching it from him. Even when injured and looking to be yanked for a Sunday as a precaution, Breida finds a way into the lineup and makes an impact every game. The flashy play in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions was something, but the performance he just had against the New York Giants was something else. 101 yards, two touchdowns, one of which was both a genius play-call and a great catch. All of a sudden Breida isn’t a last resort, he’s a focal point. One that worked his tail off to get there and one who is no longer a young rookie, but a veteran with an example set to the younger players next year. Kyle Shanahan looks at him and tight end George Kittle as the hardest workers on the team: Remember, Williams was thought to be Shanahan’s guy. If Breida panned out it would be icing on the cake. Now Brieda is the guy. Some are not fortunate to get a chance to show what they have, and when they get it, it gets ripped right away after. Breida’s made the most of everything he has. Of course, the only thing to look at when you see Breida gashing defenders is what could have been. What would have been with Jerick McKinnon. Having both Breida and McKinnon in on a play to create misdirections (throw Kyle Juszczyk in there for good measure). Have to wonder if Shanahan is thinking the same thing about putting those two on the same down:Imagine what the backfield could look like with three strong pass catchers available? We’ve started to see it with Breida and Juszczyk back there, but imagine being able to swap in McKinnon as well? Or what about getting really crazy with all three in the backfield? We saw the 49ers run the full-house pistol formation quite a bit under Jim Harbaugh. We could see plenty of that, but how about they throw everybody off with a wishbone formation as well? The world will be Kyle Shanahan’s oyster when McKinnon returns.49ers fantasy football pick-ups San Francisco 49ers T-Shirt , drops for Week 4 The San Francisco 49ers have been retooled with a quarterback change. Jimmy Garoppolo tore his ACL in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs which means his season is over, but don’t worry we’ll get to that. Now that C.J. Beathard is in the game, we’ll need to look at how his sophomore performance stacks up with the wide receivers. This is a very depressing fantasy week for 49ers fans. As always, percentage owned numbers are based on Yahoo! leagues.Pick-upsC.J. Beathard% Owned: 1Week 3 stats: Nothing (thanks refs)With Garoppolo out and the weapons the 49ers have, you’d think Beathard wouldn’t be a bad backup, right? No. This is for the three of you were crazy enough to roll with that logic. Take your hands off the left click. Do. Not. Pick. Up. Beathard. While I’m optimistic Beathard’s sophomore season will be an improvement over his rookie outing, he’d have to play lights out to even think of wasting a bench slot. Don’t go homer for this guy. He’s not worth a bench slot in this league. Ever. Really, don’t do it. Pick up or don’t pick up: Don’t pick him up. Unless you already have nothing to play for and are trying to make an all-Niner team. Alfred Morris% Owned: 53Week 3 stats: 14 carries, 67 yardsAs becoming tradition, the 49ers split running back carries, with Matt Breida getting the slight lion’s share of the work this time around. 14 carries for 67 yards and no passes doesn’t bode well for Morris who was used more in the traditional running back mold. Except one difference: Matt Breida is listed as questionable for Week 4 with a hyper-extended right knee. Even if Breida is ready to go on Sunday, that’s not an injury that will have him at 100 percent which may make Morris the featured back.If Breida is out, expect Morris to play bell cow.All things considered, that would increase his workload. If you are in a PPR league that grants points per carry, there’s some treasure to get from this. To add more fun to this scenario, the 49ers may very well run the ball more now that Beathard is behind center , granting carries for all!Just one problem. Until we are proven otherwise, Beathard isn’t the greatest at this throwing the football thing, and the league knows it. Expect defenses to quickly stack the box to where the running backs may not get much room at all. Look at the Cleveland Browns and Carlos Hyde, he now is one of the sneakiest picks someone could have had since Mayfield actually makes lanes for him to run in now that Tyrod Taylor’s bad throwing is no longer a benefit.That considered, the opportunity for volume in a system where everyone is going to stack the box may just find Morris open anyways. This is Kyle freaking Shanahan we’re talking about here.Speaking of Beathard San Francisco 49ers Hats , if you have Breida or Morris, this stat should make you very, very happy. Pick up or don’t pick up: If you need a running back, pick him up. Maybe not with your first waiver claim, but definitely find a way to get him on your team for the foreseeable future. Fool’s goldAll of the 49ers wide receivers% Owned: Don’t get us startedThe 49ers passing game is taking a huge hit with the season-ending injury of Garoppolo. This devalues the stock of the wide receivers. For now, they (hopefully) have been on your bench because none of them have done anything to merit being a started beyond a flex spot (unless you’re in a deeper league). Notice, we are limiting this to wide receivers. George Kittle is about to become a must-start tight end with this roster change. You read it here first. That said, keep what you have on the bench. We don’t know what Beathard will do in his second season or if he has a favorite target that isn’t Kittle/running backs. Give it a week or two if you can sustain the bench because he may have a go-to guy that he wants to throw to, and only throw to them—which makes that pass-catcher money in a PPR league. Well, as long as he can throw in their zip code. Drop or don’t drop: If you got a wide receiver on your team, wait a week or two to see who Beathard favors, then make some decisions accordingly. Jimmy Garoppolo% Owned: 86Week 4 stats: 20 completions, 251 yards; 2 touchdownsLook at that stat train. That’s a Jimmy G we’re familiar with, and had it not been for that last minute injury, the 49ers may have won that game against KC. Unfortunately, we also have to set things straight: His season is over. Jimmy G is gone and he’s not coming back.At least in 2018. It’s time to part ways. So what happens? Well you know you gotta let him go. Release him from your bench and get a new backup or starting QB. I’d recommend Baker Mayfield for a week while you figure it out. He’ll give defenses fits for a week or two while there’s no film and then you can grab whoever is on the board that can fill out your season—or just stream a QB. Things to keep in mind: Garoppolo’s season in fantasy wasn’t terrible. For 2019, he’s definitely a sneaky play in the later rounds as he won’t be getting reached like he was in 2018. You might even want to snag him for a keeper league if you find yourself out of other options, but that might not be worth the keeper tag as your first round running back or wide receiver or even a different quarterback could be better depending on your scoring.But yes, folks. Time to move on. Drop or don’t drop: Drop him.

Predict the 49ers’ first offensive play
http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/earl-mitchell-jersey , tackle, and touchdown vs. Chargers The San Francisco 49ers head into Week 4 of the NFL season, which means it’s prediction time once again! The 49ers had an a season-changing injury to their starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in Week 3 and now turn to second-year quarterback C.J. Beathard to lead this offense. They might have a chance against a Joey Bosa-less Los Angeles Chargers defense, but it’s small, and an awful lot to ask of Beathard. The predictions will include:1. The first offensive play the 49ers will run/attempt to execute,2. The first player on defense (not special teams) who will make a tackle, and3. How the team’s first touchdown will be scored (if you think one will be scored).Here are the ground rules for the predictions.Offensive Play Prediction Guidelines: Try to be as specific as you can on what you think the 49ers’ first offensive play will be. Don’t just say “pass play” or “run play”. Instead, say “Beathard throws a slant route to Gar莽on for 7 yards” or “Alfred Morris runs right side and picks up three yards.” You can also predict incompletions, interceptions, fumbles http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/solomon-thomas-jersey , touchdowns, and even a safety if you really think that will happen on the first offensive play!Defensive Tackle Prediction Guidelines: Predicting the first defensive play is much more obscure, so this one is a simpler category -- project who you think will make the team’s first tackle that does not come on special teams or a returned interception/fumble.First Touchdown Against Los Angeles: If you do not think the 49ers will score a touchdown, then say “no touchdowns” as your answer. Otherwise, predict how you think the 49ers’ first offensive touchdown will be scored, along with the person(s) who will score. You can predict it to be on offense, defense, or special teams. If you predict a passing touchdown, name both the quarterback and the receiver.Here is the template you can copy+paste for your comments:First Offensive Play: First Defensive Tackle: First Touchdown:Here are my predictions.First Offensive Play: Handoff to Alfred Morris out of ‘I’ formation for three yardsFirst Defensive Tackle:DeForest Buckner of Melvin GordonFirst Touchdown: Afred Morris two-yard fade pass from C.J. BeathardMatt Breida, George Kittle Authentic Laken Tomlinson Jersey , Pierre Gar莽on all active for Week 6 The San Francisco 49ers announced their inactives for Week 6, and they will not be as short-handed as they expected early in the week. Most notably, the 49ers will face the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football with running back Matt Breida active. He suffered an ankle sprain last week that looked like it would sideline him for this weekend, but he is good to go.The team has made a switch on their depth chart, deactivating tight end Cole Wick. He dropped what seemed like an easy touchdown last week and the team promoted Ross Dwelley on Monday. The third tight end gets limited work in the 49ers offense, but with George Kittle dealing with a knee injury and Garrett Celek slowed a bit in practice by a quadricep injury, an opportunity could present itself.Wide receiver Trent Taylor is inactive due to his back injury that required offseason surgery. His absence means the slot position is open for Kendrick Bourne and Richie James to potentially find some additional work.49ers inactives: WR Dante Pettis, WR Trent Taylor, TE Cole Wick, OL Joshua Garnett Womens Brock Coyle Jersey , OL Shon Coleman, DL Jullian Taylor, DL D.J. JonesPackers inactives: QB Tim Boyle, WR Randall Cobb, CB Jaire Alexander, CB Bashaud Breeland, OL Alex Light, OL Jason Spriggs, WR Geronimo Allison

New York Jets left tackle Kelvin Beachum calls Sunday's
visit to Jacksonville an "identity game.""We have to be able to run the ball Womens Connor Barwin Jersey ," Beachum said. "They know that and we know that."The Jaguars (2-1) actually welcome it after what happened in the fourth quarter last week."We want them to try it," Jacksonville linebacker Telvin Smith said. "Try that. Try to come out and hit in us in the mouth. Try to come out and run it down our throats. ... Try whatever you want to do against us."The Titans pretty much did, at least late. Bruising running back Derrick Henry gained 45 of his 57 yards behind "heavy personnel" in the fourth quarter. Tennessee took advantage of sweltering heat and humidity and essentially beat the Jags at their own game and in their own backyard.Jacksonville's defense will try to redeem itself against the Jets (1-2), who have one of the top rushing tandems in the league. Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell have combined for 310 yards and four touchdowns in three games."Those backs together are a deadly combination," Jaguars defensive tackle Calais Campbell said. "They are special. I'm a big fan of football, and I think Crowell and Powell are two of the most underrated players. People don't talk about them, but they're great running backs."The Jets also torched Jacksonville on the ground in last season's Week 4 matchup, which New York won 23-20 in overtime.Powell rushed for a career-high 163 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown in which the Jaguars failed to touch him down, and rookie Elijah McGuire added a 69-yard scoring run. New York finished with 256 yards rushing."It's definitely going to be a good challenge for us up front," Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson said.With rookie quarterback Sam Darnold making his fourth start and going against Jacksonville's vaunted defensive front, it makes sense that the Jets would try to establish the run. Throw in that the Jaguars have looked vulnerable to ground attacks — rookie Saquon Barkley ran for 106 yards, including a 68-yard TD run in the fourth — and New York would be silly to do anything else."Because they're good doesn't mean you're not going to challenge them," Jets coach Todd Bowles said. "We feel like we have good players, too, and we're going to challenge them and do the things we need to do to win the ballgame. Understandably, every week you're going to have to go through good players to try to win the ballgame, and that's what we have to do. You can't shy away from them. You have to do your job better than they do their job."Here are some other things to know about the Jets and Jaguars:FOURNETTE RETURNS?Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette is expected to return after missing the last two games because of a strained right hamstring. Fournette ran nine times for 41 yards in first half of the season opener against the Giants Authentic Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , but has been sidelined since.He practiced on a limited basis all week.FAVORITE TARGETQuincy Enunwa has quickly established himself as Darnold's favorite target.Through three games, the receiver has seen 29 passes come his way, and has a team-leading 17 catches for 212 yards and a touchdown. The next-closest receiver is Terrelle Pryor, who has been targeted just 14 times with eight catches for 158 yards. Robby Anderson has 10 targets with six receptions for 90 yards."I'm just going to put the ball in the receiver's hands who is open," Darnold said. "That's my job, is to find the guy who is open, whether it's a running back, receiver or tight end."PROBLEMATIC PENALTIESThe Jaguars will try to reduce their number of penalties. They have been flagged 26 times for 265 yards."Obviously, it is hurting our football team," coach Doug Marrone said. "We are not a team that is built to overcome long situations. We keep talking about it. We keep stressing it."UNDER PRESSUREThe Jets have 23 quarterback hits, according to Radar360, a mark that ties them with Minnesota for the fourth most in the NFL.They also have eight sacks, tying them for 10th in the league. New York has four sacks in each of the last two games, the first time they have that many in consecutive games since 2015.Despite that success, defensive end Leonard Williams has yet to get a sack — and he registered no statistics against Cleveland."I thought Leonard played well," Bowles said. "He took the pressure off the other guys. They sent two or three guys at him almost every other play. But Leonard caused a lot of other people to make plays and that doesn't show up on the stat sheet. I'm happy with what he did." At this point in the season, waiver wire adds aren’t always going to be big immediate impact types. A lot of them are going to give you some depth and spot starts on bye weeks. That’s mostly where this week’s waiver wire adds fall. Before we get to the main additions, for the third week in a row we’ll mention Taylor Gabriel www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com , who is still just 22 percent owned in Yahoo leagues. Albert Wilson, WR, Miami DolphinsRostered - Yahoo: 10 percent | ESPN: 6 percentOver the past three weeks, Wilson has seen 6, 6, and 9 targets, which have resulted in 4, 5, and 6 receptions, and 19, 43, and 155 yards. Where Wilson has really been able to make a splash is after the catch. On his 73-yard touchdown on Sunday, the expected yards after the catch was one (1). He went for 70. That wasn’t even his best run against expectation — that was a 74-yard touchdown with five expected yards after the catch and he went 78, 73 yards above expectation. Only one other player this season has one reception with over 50 YAC over expectation. The Dolphins are also starting to use Wilson more in spots where he can run after the catch — crossing routes to the middle of the field.Ito Smith, RB, Atlanta FalconsRostered - Yahoo: 9 percent | ESPN: 13.7 percentSmith has scored a touchdown in three straight games and he’s going to keep getting the opportunity to do more. Devonta Freeman sat out on Sunday and his outlook for Monday night against the Giants doesn’t look good to start the week. Tevin Coleman out-snapped Smith against the Buccaneers (57 percent to 46 percent), but Smith had more carries (11 to 10) and both had two targets. Smith is on a bye after facing the Giants, but should be worth at least a bench spot while Freeman’s health is monitored through the second half of the season.Cole Beasley New York Giants T-Shirt , WR, Dallas CowboysRostered - Yahoo: 9 percent | ESPN: 8.4 percentMaybe the Cowboys figured out which receiver they should try to run the offense through. Maybe it’s just a blip, but there’s no doubt Beasley had the most impressive game for a Cowboys wide receiver this season before you even consider it came against the Jacksonville Jaguars — nine catches for 101 yards and two touchdowns on 11 targets. When the Dallas offense was at its best in 2016, Beasley was a big part of it. If the Cowboys can keep running the passing offense through the slot, they could be on to something, and buying into that is putting your faith in the Dallas coaching staff, so understood if there’s hesitation. But if the Cowboys figured out Beasley’s role, he could he turn into at least a high volume option for PPR leagues.Latavius Murray, RB, Minnesota VikingsRostered - Yahoo: 49 percent | ESPN: 46.2 percentDalvin Cook was “close” to playing on Sunday, per Mike Zimmer, but the second-year back was inactive against the Arizona Cardinals and has been dealing with injuries for most of the season and his status is something to monitor. Without Cook on the field Sunday, Murray got 82 percent of the snaps with 24 carries for 155 yards. The Vikings have been one of the most pass-heavy teams in the league this season, but they have also been among the league leaders in total plays, which still gives plenty of volume to running backs. Cook’s return would take away from Murray’s impact, but any future injury concerns would give Murray a clear path to a No. 1 back role. It’s a gamble well worth the roster spot for the about half of leagues he’s not currently on a roster.

Happy Saturday
Authentic Sterling Shepard Jersey , and welcome to Week 10 of the 2018 college football season! The New York Giants are off this week, so we don’t have to look forward to an NFL game day with any trepidation. However, the reason for that trepidation, the 1-7 Giants’ play this year, gives us plenty of reason to pay attention to college football in advance of the 2019 NFL Draft. I have already put out my first mock draft of the 2019 draft season, and it will be the last one until after the underclassmen declare.Until then we have plenty of good games, and players to watch. So, let’s get to today’s slate of games!(6) Georgia at (11) KentuckyCBS - 3:30 p.m. We’ve mentioned Georgia before, and that’s because they have a whole mess of talented players. Quarterback Jake Fromm is probably the most interesting, especially if the Giants wind up punting their quarterback decision to the 2020 draft. Beyond Fromm, Georgia has a pair of defensive backs in CB Deandre Baker and S J.R. Reed who should interest a team that is starved for them. The Giants probably can’t afford to invest a premium draft pick in a receiver, but junior Riley Ridley could intrigue if he both declares and slips in the draft.On the Kentucky side of things, the first player to watch is linebacker/EDGE Josh Allen. Like the similarly named rookie quarterback, Allen is big, long, and athletic. He isn’t the most devastating edge rusher in the class Youth Kareem Martin Jersey , but he has greater fluidity in space than many pass rushers have. The Giants might also be interested in CB Derrick Baity. Baity has the length and ability in press coverage the Giants need for their defensive scheme, but he isn’t the most physical player, nor is he as ‘twitchy’ as you would like to see from a corner.Players to watchGeorgiaJake Fromm (QB)Riley Ridley (WR)Terry Godwin (WR)Deandre Baker (CB)J.R. Reed (S)D’Andre Walker (EDGE)Jonathan Ledbetter (EDGE)KentuckyJosh Allen (LB/EDGE)Derrick Baity (CB)Mike Edwards (S)Benny Snell (RB)Duke at MiamiESPN 2 - 7 p.m.We take a break from the ranked match-ups to check in on one that Giants fans should definitely be aware of. The future of the quarterback position is up in the air for the Giants, and Duke’s Daniel Jones could well be high on their radar. They have, after all, had a fair amount success with quarterbacks coached by David Cutcliffe in college. Jones has prototypical size and arm strength, athleticism, as well as generally solid accuracy and placement. He is also improving with regards to the finer points of the position, such as movement in the pocket, processing speed, and reading defenses before the snap.Of course, there’s also the Miami Hurricanes. Despite not taking the expected step after their exciting 2017 campaign, they still have talent to interest scouts — particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Considering their ongoing issues at safety, Jaquan Johnson should be particularly interesting. Likewise, cornerback Michael Jackson (Odell Beckham Jr. might lobby for him to be drafted based on his name alone) should interest a Giants’ defense in need of big, long Youth Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , athletic press corners. EDGE Joe Jackson has impressive upside as a long, lean, athletic edge defender, but he needs some development in the finer aspects of playing his position. On the offensive side of the ball, the Giants might also keep an eye on left tackle Tyree St. Lewis. Players to watchDukeDaniel Jones (QB)Joe Giles-Harris (LB)MiamiJaquan Johnson (S)Michael jackson (CB)Joe Jackson (EDGE)Tyree St. Lewis (OT)Travis Homer (RB)(1) Alabama at (4) LSUCBS - 8 p.m. This match-up gets circled on the calendar every year, and it turns out to be a great game almost that often. As you would expect from both these teams, this game is going to be stacked with future NFL players. This game could use a post all its own to take a look at every prospect in the detail he deserves. Instead I’m going to make a quick rundown of the top players who should interest the Giants this year. (Obviously, you should be watching QB Tua Tagovailoa for the same reasons as Jake Fromm in the Georgia game, but like Fromm, he won’t be draft eligible until 2020 at the earliest.)Players to watch *all of themAlabamaQuinnen Williams (DT)Jonah Williams (OT)Raekwon Davis (DL)Mack Wilson (LB)Deionte Thompson (S)LSUGreedy Williams (CB)Devin White (ILB)Rashard Lawrence (DT)Garrett Brumfield (OG) You can tell things are bad for the Giants, because the one thing they could count on failed them Monday night.The fact that one thing is a rookie speaks to a different problem, but they’re 1-6 for a reason.Via Tom Rock of Newsday, running back Saquon Barkley was disappointed in himself, after he failed to break 100 yards from scrimmage for the first time in his career. He had 14 carries for 43 yards and a touchdown, and another nine receptions for 51 yards.

Customized New York Giants Jerseys , 9/15: Shurmur expects improvement, Evan Engram’s drops, more Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some Giants headlines to get your Saturday started.Shurmur: Giants looking aheadCoach Pat Shurmur and the Giants are not focused on all the chatter about what happens to teams that start a season 0-2.“I think the important thing is we’ve all been through this before, where things go your way Week 1 and it has no effect Week 2. Then we’ve been the other way where you’ve been able to come back and win the next game, so that’s behind us,” Shurmur told the team’s official website. “We obviously made corrections from Week 1. Our whole focus, really, starting on Monday was getting ready for Dallas (where the Giants play Sunday night).”“No, I think teams typically, if you’re fortunate to stay healthy enough, teams typically make big improvements between Week One and Week Two and certainly Week Two and Week Three, really through the first month of the season. I really do think it takes a little while to see what your team is going to be like www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com , but along the way you got to fight to win games.”Shurmur expects to see a better Giants team against Dallas than he did last Sunday vs. Jacksonville.I think teams typically, if you’re fortunate to stay healthy enough, teams typically make big improvements between Week 1 and Week 2 and certainly Week 2 and Week 3, really through the first month of the season,” he said. “I really do think it takes a little while to see what your team is going to be like, but along the way you got to fight to win games.”Evan Engram “built to catch the football”That’s a quote from Giants tight ends coach Lunda Wells. The problem is that the Giants’ second-year player has dropped the ball far too often thus far in his NFL career. So what, if anything, can the Giants do about it?“I think with catching the football, some might say is it mental? No, I think with him, he’s been built to catch the football. He has 10-inch hands. I think just like a baseball hitter, just keep getting more attempts at the plate, and keep swinging at it New York Giants T-Shirt , and you’ll be hitting .500,” Wells said. “The biggest thing is for him just continue to catch more footballs. We’ve been emphasizing that during practice. Emphasizing it pre-practice and post-practice with ball drills, even in our meeting room. Just to continue to keep catching footballs. I think that’s the way you get better at catching footballs.”Around the Inter-GoogleGiants’ extra motivated ahead of ‘must win’ Week 2 game vs. Dallas Cowboys | NJ.comAlec Ogletree already has Giants defense on the same page | New York PostJerry Jones still trusts Dak Prescott | New York Post‘One play away’ not good enough for Giants’ offense | NewsdayCowboys stud salivating over Ereck Flowers matchup | New York PostGiants news, 8/27: Jon Halapio gains a job but loses a friend, more news Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let’s get right to the headlines for your Monday morning.Jon Halapio: “Sucks to see my friend go”It has been obvious for months now that Jon Halapio would be the Giants starting center. Sunday’s trade of Brett Jones to the Minnesota Vikings served to reiterate that. It also left Halapio without one of his best friends, a player who helped him acclimate to the center position.“I’m happy for him, it sucks to see my friend go. That’s the tough part about this business, you build relationships like this, but you know that sometimes it doesn’t go that way for us to be together forever, it’s not a marriage,” Halapio said. “I’m happy for him, it’s closer to home for him and he gets an opportunity to go out there and play and display his talents and what he brings to the game New York Giants Hats , he’s a good player.”Halapio said his approach is to still work as though he is competing for the job.“It still doesn’t cross my mind. I’m still competing like I’m not the starter,” Halapio said. “I’m just going to keep approaching it that way until Week 1 and focus on trying to get everyone on the same page and get this running game going. Just try to improve one day at a time.Jonathan Stewart and his “goldfish memory”Coach Pat Shurmur expressed confidence over the weekend that Jonathan Stewart’s rough preseason is not an indication that the 31-year-old can no longer succeed at the NFL level.Stewart is trying not to focus on his lack of preseason production.“I think this is a time, obviously, where you have an opportunity to work on your craft whether it’s practice, preseason games. Getting to gel with the first teams, whatever teams you’re a part of, making the most of your opportunities,” Stewart said. “Also learn how not to dwell on certain things. At the end of day, goldfish memory because once something bad goes wrong, you have to learn how to bounce back and more forward to the next play because time is going to continue to tick.”He called his fumble Friday “a minor error, major mess up.”Despite the lack of production (10 preseason carries, -5 yards, a long run of 4 yards) Stewart said his summer has “been good.”“A lot of my practice reps New York Giants Hoodie , a lot of things that I’ve been putting out on film for preseason, I felt like I’ve been doing everything I’ve supposed to have been doing,” he said.Around the Inter-GoogleTucker: I can tell you first-hand why changing the kickoff rule was necessary – The AthleticThe new kickoff rules may be frustrating to some, but the changes need to be made, because the play ends careers.

The Buffalo Bills' offense remains anemic and turnover-prone
. And their defense is suddenly springing leaks again.As if things can't get much worse Limited Andre Tippett Jersey , the young and patchwork Bills follow up their 37-5 meltdown at Indianapolis on Sunday by preparing to host Tom Brady and the New England Patriots next week 鈥?and in a prime-time setting, no less.Coach Sean McDermott acknowledged the challenge ahead by noting how the Patriots are far more accustomed to playing on a national stage such as Monday Night Football, as opposed to Buffalo 鈥?a team more familiar with early Sunday afternoon kickoffs."The better team you have, the more prime-time games you get," McDermott said Monday. "So yeah, you can say give them the advantage because they've been there before."And that was after McDermott noted how relatively inexperienced the Bills are in saying: "I've got a young football team on my hands."It shows.A year after ending a 17-season playoff drought, the Bills (2-5) are enduring the telltale signs of being in transition after going through yet another offseason roster overhaul as part of their intention to rebuild through youth.One of those rookies won't be in the lineup against the AFC East-leading Patriots (5-2), who are 31-4 against Buffalo in their past 35 meetings, and 7-0 overall in prime-time games.McDermott announced rookie quarterback Josh Allen will miss his second game with a bruised elbow on his right arm.That leaves veteran Derek Anderson preparing to make his second start some three weeks after being lured out of semiretirement.The 13th-year player showed some rust by throwing three interceptions and losing a fumble against the Colts in his first start in nearly two years.Despite his unfamiliarity with Buffalo's playbook and personnel, Anderson did go 20 of 31 for 175 yards, which marked the most yards passing by a Bills quarterback in four weeks.Buffalo's offense, however, is at best a work in progress no matter who's at quarterback, including Nathan Peterman, who lost the starting job midway through a 47-3 season-opening loss at Baltimore.The Bills have scored just 81 points. It's the third-lowest total in franchise history through seven games, and worst since Buffalo scored 75 in getting off to a 1-6 start in 1977.The Bills have yet to top 20 first downs in a game. And the seven offensive touchdowns scored through seven games are the fewest over the same span since Buffalo managed six on offense to open the 2007 season.The Bills have been so inept, only eight of 22 drives have crossed midfield over the past two games. The Patriots, by comparison, had six of 10 drives cross midfield alone in their 38-31 win at Chicago on Sunday."I think we'd all like to be out there posting 50 points (a game)," McDermott said. "That's just not where we are right now. So we just have to understand who we are Irving Fryar Jersey Salute to Service , where we are in this process of trying to get this thing going in the right direction."The game against the Colts was the latest indication of how the Bills stand little chance of being competitive if their defense unravels.Though five offensive turnovers played a factor, Buffalo surrendered 220 yards rushing and four touchdowns passing 鈥?both season worsts. The Bills also forced no takeaways after generating 11 in their previous four outings.The Colts scored on their final four possessions of the first half to build a 24-0 lead, marking the third time this season Buffalo has trailed by 22 or more points after two quarters.It was an uncharacteristic outing for a defense that combined to allow just four touchdowns and had 15 sacks in its previous four games.Coordinator Leslie Frazier described the issues against the run as being correctible."It's disappointing," Frazier said. "We're trying to set the standard on defense, and we didn't play up to our standard yesterday. It was not playoff-caliber, and we've got to play better."NOTES: RB LeSean McCoy's status remains uncertain as he continues to be monitored for a concussion after being hurt on the second play from scrimmage. ... Starting DE Trent Murphy is listed week to week after hurting his knee. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — It’s not every day that a team finds itself cheering for the one that beat it the season before in the Super Bowl.This isn’t the typical season for the New England Patriots.Patriots players erupted in a loud cheer in the locker room as Eagles kicker Jake Elliott’s 35-yard field goal sailed through the uprights as time expired to give Philadelphia a victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday.Combined with the Patriots’ 24-12 win over the Buffalo Bills just minutes before to snap a two-game losing streak, New England moved back into the No. 2 spot in the AFC with one game to play. A Patriots win over the Jets next week would give New England a first-round bye in the playoffs.“Fly, Eagles, Fly!” receiver Julian Edelman said afterward.It was a perfect ending to a less than perfect day for the Patriots.New England (10-5) earned their 10th straight AFC East title with Sony Michel running for 116 yards and a touchdown. It also improved to 7-0 at home this season and became the first franchise in NFL history to earn playoff berths in 10 straight seasons. It marked the Patriots’ fifth straight win over the Bills (5-10) and their 26th series sweep of Buffalo.Tom Brady went 13 of 24 for 126 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions — his lowest output since he passed for 123 yards in a 2003 loss to the Bills.“We didn’t have our best day in the passing game. But it felt good to win. At this time of year, whatever it takes to win, that’s what you’ve got to do,” Brady said. “And we still have one hugely important game left. We have to finish strong.”But with the touchdown he joined Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Philip Rivers with at least 10 seasons of 4,000-plus passing yards. Manning has 14 such seasons, Brees entered the day with 12 and Rivers has 10.It was Michel’s fourth 100-yard rushing game of the season.It helped mask Brady’s mild day. The two interceptions were his third time with multiple picks in a game this season. He now has 11 interceptions in 2018, his most since 2013.Brady’s touchdown pass of the game came thanks to a heads-up play by Julian Edelman in the third quarter .Leading 14-6 and facing fourth-and-4 on the Bills 32, Brady found Edelman over the middle on a quick slant. Edelman was tackled and rolled up by safety Rafael Bush, but Edelman never touched the ground. He got up and sprinted into the end zone.Brady’s interceptions were among three turnovers by the Patriots on the day John Hannah Jersey , but Buffalo was only able to turn them into three points. Leading 24-6 in fourth quarter, he was replaced by backup Brian Hoyer.Asked why he pulled Brady with more than six minutes to play, coach Bill Belichick said because “I thought it was the right thing to do.”Bills back running back LeSean McCoy returned after a one-game absence with a left hamstring injury. He had a quiet return, rushing six times for 9 yards. He didn’t play the first series of the game and said afterward he was benched by coach Sean McDermott after a disagreement for which McCoy took responsibility.“We had an issue. He corrected me. That’s all,” McCoy said.Rookie quarterback Josh Allen was bottled up for most of the day, limited to 20 of 41 for 217 yards with two interceptions. He ran five times for 30 yards. Buffalo finished with 72 rushing yards, the first time in five games it failed to rush for 100 or more.“Gotta get better,” Allen said. “We’ll learn from this one. New England is the team that teams want to be. The trajectory of where we want to put this team and how they can sustain success, so yeah we’re gonna learn from this one.”After going three plays and out on their first drive of the day, the Patriots went to the run game to score the game’s first touchdown. New England ran six straight times, capped by a 4-yard TD run by Michel. It was Michel’s first touchdown since New England’s Week 12 win over the Jets.Following a Buffalo punt, the Patriots crossed into Bills’ territory again, but gave the ball back when Rex Burkhead fumbled. But Stephen Hauschka’s 43-yard field goal attempt hit the crossbar.After both teams exchanged punts, New England pushed its lead to 14-0 in the second quarter via a 27-yard touchdown run by James White .NO OFFENSEBuffalo’s first six drives of the game were a regression for an offense that had shown promise in recent games. The Bills went three plays and out three straight times, followed by six plays and the missed field goal; three-and-out; and one play and an interception by Allen.The Bills returned the favor when Lorenzo Alexander picked off an errant pass by Brady. But Buffalo again failed to convert the turnover into points, turning the ball over on downs when Allen’s deep, fourth-and-3 pass for Robert Foster fell incomplete.INJURIESBills: LB Julian Stanford left in the first quarter with an ankle injury and did not return. … WR Isaiah McKenzie was evaluated for a head injury in the second quarter but returned in the second half. … WR Deonte Thompson left in the third quarter with a toe injury.Patriots: WR Cordarrelle Patterson left with a knee injury in the third quarter.UP NEXTBills: Host Miami next Sunday.Patriots: Host the Jets.

Three years after quarterback Tom Brady arrived in New England
as the 199th pick in the draft Adam Butler Jersey , quarterback Kliff Kingsbury arrived in New England as the 201st pick in the draft. Sixteen years later, there’s a chance the Kingsbury could return to New England as the replacement for Josh McDaniels, if McDaniels leaves for the NFL.It sounds like Brady wouldn’t have a problem with that. Appearing on WEEI earlier today, Brady praised Kingsbury.”Kingsbury joined USC a little over a month ago as offensive coordinator, and he may resign from USC, pay his very low buyout, and pursue NFL opportunities. Those opportunities include interviewing for head-coaching vacancies with the Jets and Cardinals and possibly joining another team as an offensive coordinator.USC Athletic Director Lynn Swann blocked Kingsbury from interviewing with the Jets and Cardinals, despite the buyout. Kingsbury currently is considering whether to fight fire with fire, and quit. The New England Patriots’ prime time thriller against the Kansas City Chiefs was the final AFC East game played in week six – and like two of the three that happened before, it was a successful one for the division. While New England stays on top, the rest of the teams are not too far behind. With one notable exception that lost not just a game on Sunday but a quarterback in the process. Let’s take a look at it in this week’s AFC East Report.1. New England Patriots (4-2)Week 6: 43-40 win against the Kansas City Chiefs, in Foxboro MATo watch highlights of the game, click here.2. Miami Dolphins (4-2)Week 6: 31-28 OT win against the Chicago Bears Authentic Elandon Roberts Jersey , in Miami Gardens FLAfter back to back defeats made the Miami Dolphins lose the AFC East lead, the team bounced back against the visiting Chicago Bears on Sunday – despite starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill being out with a shoulder injury. His replacement, however, played a well enough game. Together with some opportunistic defense, this allowed the home team to come away with a 31-28 victory.The game started slowly, with Miami getting on the board first: the team’s second possession ended with a 5-yard touchdown pass from Brock Osweiler (28/44, 380 yds, 3 TDs, 2 INTs) to tight end Nick O’Leary (4/49 yds, 1 TD). The score was the lone offensive highlight for the Dolphins in half one – the rest of quarters one and two was dominated by the team’s defense.Late in the first quarter, the unit stopped Chicago on fourth down near midfield. Late in the second it forced and recovered a Bears fumble at the Miami two-yard line. But while the Dolphins could not turn the takeaways into points – in part because of an Osweiler interception – it did allow the team to take a 7-0 lead into the locker rooms at halftime. However, the lead did not hold long as Chicago scored two consecutive touchdowns to open the third quarter. The latter of which was preceded by Osweiler’s second interception.At that point, the game turned into a shootout. Miami answered with a field goal before the Bears added another touchdown to go up 21-10. The Dolphins then added three more points to their total before the team’s defense made another big play by picking off Chicago quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (22/31, 316 yds, 3 TDs, 1 INT) inside the Miami end zone. This time, the home team took advantage and tied the game on an Osweiler touchdown pass to Albert Wilson (6/155 yds Authentic Trent Brown Jersey Salute to Service , 2 TDs).The Bears answered with a touchdown of their own but Osweiler’s second scoring pass to Wilson – a 75-yarder – tied the game once again with three minutes left to go. With neither team being able to score again before the conclusion of the fourth quarter, the contest was headed to overtime. Miami found itself in a position to score a game-deciding touchdown on its first possession but Kenyan Drake (13/57 yds) lost a fumble near the Chicago goal line.The visitors were then able to drive into the range for what would have been a deciding field goal, but missed the 53-yard attempt wide right. Subsequently, the Dolphins moved to the Bears 29 and with three seconds left had rookie kicker Jason Sanders (3/3 FG, 2/2 XP) deliver the game-winning 47-yard attempt.To watch highlights of the game, click here.3. New York Jets (3-3)Week 6: 42-34 win against the Indianapolis Colts, in East Rutherford NJThe New York Jets are back at .500 after a shootout victory over the visiting Indianapolis Colts. Todd Bowles’ team started very well into the meeting: on the second play from scrimmage, cornerback Morris Claiborne (4 TKLs, 1 INT) picked off a tipped pass from Andrew Luck (23/43, 301 yds, 4 TDs, 3 INTs) and returned it for a touchdown. The lead did not hold long, however, as Indianapolis tied the game on the very next possession.The back-and-forth continued throughout the game. New York answered the Colts’ score with a field goal drive before two straight Jets giveaways – an interception from Sam Darnold (24/30, 280 yds, 2 TDs, 1 INT) and a fumble by Quincy Enunwa (1/9 yds) – allowed the visitors to take a 13-10 lead. Following a Jets fumble recovery by Jordan Jenkins (1 TKL Adrian Clayborn Jersey Salute to Service , 1 FR), the home team was able to re-gain the lead on a pass from Darnold to Terrelle Pryor (5/57 yds, 1 TD).After New York’s third takeaway of the first half – an interception by linebacker Avery Williamson (5 TKLs, 1 INT) –, the team was able to add two more field goals to its lead and enter the locker rooms at halftime up 23-13. The first series after intermission saw the Jets increase their lead to 17 points when Darnold found fellow rookie Chris Herndon (2/56 yds, 1 TD) from 32 yards out.Following another Colts touchdown on the next drive, the Jason Myers (7/7 FG, 3/3 XP) show started. New York’s kicker made four field goals over a 15-minute span to solidify the Jets’ lead even when the Colts were able to score two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. In between, the team’s defense registered two more big stops: linebacker Darron Lee had an interception before the unit stopped Indianapolis on a fourth down pass.And while not all was perfect from the Jets’ perspective, the team played solid complementary football and made big plays at critical points – something that the 2017 Jets often failed to do.To watch highlights of the game, click here.4. Buffalo Bills (2-4)Week 6: 20-13 loss against the Houston Texans, in Houston TXThe Buffalo Bills’ up-and-down season continued on Sunday against the Houston Texans. In a defensive battle, the team failed to string enough plays together to come away victoriously and move back to .500. Instead, the team lost its fourth game of the season and – tomake matters worse – first-round rookie quarterback Josh Allen (10/17, 84 yds) late in the third quarter. Allen could reportedly miss up to three games because of the elbow injury he suffered.Buffalo started the game with the football in its hands but despite quickly driving to the Houston side of the field had to punt. The Texans were also forced to kick away following their first drive, but remained in possession when Bills wideout Ray-Ray McCloud (1/2 yds) muffed the catch. The home team was able to take advantage of the second chance and went up 7-0.Buffalo failed to respond and instead turned the football over on another special teams blunder in the early second quarter. Following the blocked punt, the Texans further increased their lead by a field goal. Meanwhile Kenny Britt Jersey Salute to Service , the Bills offense continued to be ineffective as well which is why the squad headed into the half down 10-0. The third period, however, started better for Sean McDermott’s team.Following an interception by Lorenzo Alexander (4 TKLs, 1.5 SCKs, 1 INT), kicker Stephen Hauschka (2/2 FG, 1/1 XP) put the Bills on the board. The defensive back-and-forth continued with Hauschka’s second field goal late in the third quarter which brought the team within four points. After another takeaway – a fumble recovery by Harrison Phillips (1 TKL, 1 FR) – Buffalo actually scored a touchdown to go up 13-10 on a touchdown pass from Nathan Peterman (6/12, 61 yds, 1 TD, 2 INTs) to Zay Jones (3/35 yds, 1 TD).However, the lead did not hold. First, the Texans tied the game on a field goal with 1:37 left in the fourth quarter. Two plays later, Peterman threw a pick-six that gave Houston a 20-13 advantage. Buffalo failed to respond this time and a second interception thrown by the backup passer effectively sealed the game.To watch highlights of the game, click here.

Authentic Malcom Brown Jersey , it's not surprising the New York Giants are losing.The defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles are another story. They were expected to make a run at being the first team to repeat since the New England Patriots won title games after the 2003 and 2004 seasons.The Eagles (2-3) head into Thursday night's game at MetLife Stadium against the Giants (1-4), looking to avoid their first three-game losing streak since the 2016 season. A fourth loss would be more than they had last season.While some might point to a Super Bowl hangover, it's also a combination of having a target on their backs, injuries and bad play."We know we're going to get everybody's best and we've seen it already this season," Eagles coach Doug Pederson said."I've addressed the team that way. It doesn't mean we have to; it's not about panic mode or anything in that nature, it's just a heightened sense of urgency. The mistakes we're making are self-inflicted and it's keeping us from possibly winning a game or two here or there, and we understand that."So do the Giants. They have not played horribly in coach Pat Shurmur's first season. They are not making enough plays, and too many mistakes.Odell Beckham Jr., who caught a touchdown and threw another in the Giants' 33-31 loss to Carolina last weekend, is glad this is a short week and the Eagles are the opponent in the weak NFC East where no team has a winning record."Defending Super Bowl champs coming in here, Thursday night game, but right now the focus is more on this just one game, and not putting so much pressure on what it could do for us," Beckham said. "But this is a game that we need to win against a division rival."The Eagles have won the past three against New York and seven of eight.Beckham doesn't care."There's always a team each and every year where everything is right for them," Beckham said of the Eagles."Even watching them last year, there was third downs, third-and-7s 鈥?they got all of them. It's just the little stuff that was going on for them all year that was happening that allowed them to win each and every game. I don't know if I've seen that in the past games."Here are a couple of things to watch:STOPPING ERTZEagles tight end Zach Ertz has at least 10 catches and 100 receiving yards in each of his past two games. He is looking to become the fifth player in league history to record three consecutive 10-catch, 100-yard games. The Giants have the league's eighth-best pass defense, and that's with only six sacks this season. New York safety Landon Collins also does a good job in slowing down opposing tight ends. Expect to see him go against Ertz.SCOUTING SAQUONEagles defensive end Michael Bennett compared Saquon Barkley to a combination of Marshawn Lynch, LeSean McCoy and Jamaal Charles. Linebacker Jordan Hicks said the defense has to make sure it's aware of Barkley on every snap. Philadelphia had the NFL's best run defense last season and opponents are averaging 66.4 yards this year, with 42.4 yards by running backs."He's a dynamic player," Hicks said. "He's used in many ways, he's a strong, physical runner and can make every cut. We have to contain him."STERLING EFFORTGiants wide receiver Sterling Shepard has played against the Eagles four times and caught a touchdown in every game. He had two big games last season, catching a total of 18 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns. Shepard might have something to prove this week. He ran the wrong route Sunday and it led to an interception. The third-year pro took out his frustration on a bench and a garbage can. "I really wanted to win that game. That's the bottom line. I felt it kind of slipping away right there."WHERE'S THE RUSH?The Eagles only have 12 sacks this season and the inability of the front four to bring down quarterbacks has hurt because coordinator Jim Schwartz doesn't like to blitz and relies on the linemen to get sacks. As a result, the pass defense has suffered. Eli Manning gets the ball out quickly Limited Duron Harmon Jersey , but he's been sacked 16 times this season."We can rush better, we can get to the quarterback more," three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox said. "The defensive line drives this team. We have to do better."KICKING GAMEJake Elliott of the Eagles has made seven straight field goals. He also beat the Giants with a 61-yarder last season. Coincidently, Graham Gano beat New York with a 63-yarder last weekend. Aldrick Rosas of the Giants has been perfect this season making all 11 of his field goals and seven extra points. He has an injured quad and his status is uncertain. Marshall Koehn, who was in training camp, was signed to the practice squad Tuesday. He has kicked in one NFL regular-season game.AP Pro Football Writer Rob Maaddi contributed to this story. Tom Brady is so looking forward to his annual trip to Buffalo the Patriots quarterback posted a video on social media playfully announcing his impending arrival."Another great win, 5-2. Got to get to 6-2," he said, walking alongside teammate Lawrence Guy following a 38-31 victory at Chicago last weekend. And when Guy chimed in by saying, "6-2 on the way," Brady responded with a wide-eyed: "Woo! Bills Mafia, here we come."Bills fans, who refer to themselves as the "Mafia," naturally took Brady's remarks as a taunt in advance of Buffalo (2-5) hosting New England on Monday night.The more upset fans are, the better, Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes said."I think it's perfect," Hughes said. "I think that's great to get our fans riled up, because we're going to need all that anger, all that hostility."The young, patchwork and offensively challenged Bills could use whatever edge they can get for various reasons.They're already on their third starting quarterback, with Derek Anderson filling in for injured rookie Josh Allen; have scored just 81 points; and have lost by 22 or more three times, including a 37-5 meltdown at Indianapolis last weekend.Then there's the prospect of facing Brady, who at 41, has every good reason to be upbeat given his career-long string of dominance over New England's AFC East rival.With a 28-3 record against Buffalo, Brady holds the NFL mark for most wins by a quarterback against one opponent. His 466 yards passing in a 40-32 win at Buffalo in 2015 are the most against the Bills. He threw five touchdown passes — four to Randy Moss alone — in having a hand in Buffalo's most lopsided home loss, a 56-10 Patriots win in 2007.And Brady also contributed to the Patriots racking up 580 yards offense — the most allowed by Buffalo at home — in a 52-28 win in 2012.The past means nothing to the Patriots Lawrence Guy Jersey , who are 31-5 against Buffalo since 2000, when Bill Belichick took over as coach."It's always tough in Buffalo," Belichick said, discounting the fact the Patriots have won six straight at Orchard Park, New York, by a combined margin of 230-144.The Patriots enters the game on a roll, having scored 38 or more points in winning four straight.Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams took no exception to Brady's remarks."Why wouldn't the man be confident, right? I think that comes with good players," Williams said, referring to Brady's 201-57 career record. "Good players are confident. Great players are even more confident. That's no shock."NOT READY FOR PRIME TIMEThe Bills are 2-10 in their past 12 Monday night games, and have lost six straight since a 23-18 win at Miami in 1999. Buffalo hasn't hosted a Monday night game since Phil Dawson hit a decisive 56-yard field goal with 1:39 remaining in a 29-27 loss to Cleveland on Nov. 17, 2008.Buffalo is 0-13 in games played on either Sunday or Monday nights since a 2000 season-opening 16-13 win against Tennessee. Adding in Thursday and Saturday night games, Buffalo is a combined 3-18 since 2001.UNDERDOGS AGAINBills coach Sean McDermott shrugged when informed the Patriots opened as 11-point favorites."Is that new?" he said, before noting how the Patriots won the AFC championship last season and extended their NFL record by winning their ninth consecutive division title."Until you beat them, then they're going to be favored. That's how it works," McDermott said.MICHEL ON THE MENDThe Patriots will likely be without rookie running back Sony Michel, who hurt his left knee injury against Chicago.Michel missed New England's first two practices this week, and leads the team with 422 yards rushing and four TDs. His absence would leave the Patriots with James White and Kenjon Barner as the only healthy running backs on the roster.MISTER MONDAYBrady has no trouble getting up for Monday. His 48 career touchdown passes on Monday night are the fourth most in history behind Dan Marino (74), Brett Favre (69) and Drew Brees (50).Brady also enters the matchup with Buffalo on the cusp of becoming the NFL's all-time leader in touchdown passes, counting playoffs. Peyton Manning tops the list with 579, Brady is second with 575.RETIRING NO. 34The Bills will honor Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas by retiring his No. 34 during halftime. He joins quarterback Jim Kelly and defensive end Bruce Smith as the only Bills player to earn the honor.Thomas hopes his presence and Brady's comments regarding Bills fans might spur Buffalo."The fans will be riled up now because of what Tom Brady said," he said.No matter the outcome, Thomas added: "It'll be a special night. It absolutely means more than anything I could ever imagine right now at this point in my life."AP Sports Writer Kyle Hightower contributed to this report.This story has been corrected to indicate Bills' last Monday night home game was against Cleveland in 2008.

Agent reveals Hue Jackson recently lost his brother
Youth Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey , mother It has been a tough two weeks for Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson.On Wednesday, Jackson’s agent John Thornton revealed to Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot that Jackson has been weathering back-to-back family tragedies. His brother died unexpectedly two weeks ago and his mother, Betty Lee, passed on Sunday after a long illness.Thornton said, “It’s been really tough on him. He’s just trying to let football help him out.” Jackson himself hasn’t publicly addressed his personal life; Thornton, per Cabot Youth Nick Chubb Jersey , said that Jackson “wanted the focus to be on the team at the start of camp,” though, understandably, “to have two tragedies like this back-to-back has been really difficult.”Being the head coach of the team featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” has also taken a toll on Jackson. “At any given time he’s got two cameras in his office. He’s doing the best he can not to let his emotions get the best of him. He knows he has to be there for the team.”“Losing two important people in his life in the span of two weeks has really hit him hard,” added Thornton. All of us at Dawgs By Nature send our condolences, love and support to Jackson and his family at what is such a difficult time. Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry set a record for the most catches by a player in his first five NFL seasons when he caught the 427th pass of his career in Week Five Youth David Njoku Jersey , but his statistical output in his first season in Cleveland is down from where it was in Miami.Landry is on pace to catch 83 passes this season, which would be a career low, and the last three weeks have seen him catch 11 passes after opening the year with 20 receptions in the first three weeks. Landry has dropped some passes and said Thursday that he has to “stay out of the numbers” while keeping his attention on doing more to build his relationship with rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield.“I’ve just got to keep my head focused on the task at hand and make the plays when they come,” Mayfield said, via Cleveland.com. “That’s the biggest thing. … [Mayfield] puts that on himself, but I do think that he throws a lot of catchable balls.To take some of that away from him http://www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com/jamie-collins-jersey-authentic , I have to do a better job of catching them more and making the plays for him. I’m working really hard at that, trying to do that and trying to earn more and more of his trust every day in practice.”The Browns don’t have established receivers outside of Landry, which leads to defenses doing what they can to take him out of games and forcing Damion Ratley or Antonio Callaway to make plays to beat them. That makes it all the more important for Landry to make the plays that come his way in Tampa this weekend and in the other games to come. Custom Arizona Cardinals Jerseys

The Cleveland Browns defense has become a game-altering
presence during the first three weeks of the NFL season. Now the defense will be getting some reinforcements as the Browns head to Oakland looking for just their second road win against the Raiders since 2006. Defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah and linebacker Christian Kirksey http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jc-tretter-jersey , who both missed the past two games with injuries, are back at practice and expected to play on Sunday.Even without two of its starters, the defense has forced a league-high 11 turnovers, are 11th in points per game allowed (19.7), tied for fourth in touchdown passes allowed (3), fourth in opposing quarterback rating (72.4), and tied for 10th in average yards per carry allowed (3.7).Now Ogbah is ready to get in on the fun, according to clevelandbrowns.com:The Raiders may be a mess right now under head coach Jon Gruden, but the offense has played well enough to average a tick more than 400 yards a game so having Ogbah and Kirksey back on the field should be a good thing. Von Miller acknowledges he's no draft guru and is far from any kind of expert when it comes to quarterbacks. Well, except for sacking them, of course.But the Denver Broncos star linebacker knew there was something special about Sam Darnold long before the New York Jets made him the No. 3 overall pick."I don't know nothing about drafting a quarterback or anything like that, but I thought he was the No. 1 pick, for sure," Miller said. "I thought he was the best offensive player in the draft."The Jets sure thought so, even if the teams ahead of them took guys on offense ahead of Darnold. Cleveland made quarterback Baker Mayfield the No. 1 overall pick, while the Giants went with running back Saquon Barkley with the next selection.The Jets pounced on Darnold when their turn came up, and Miller can't blame them."Baker Mayfield was the No. 1 pick, and rightfully so," Miller said. "But in my opinion, watching everything, from a pass rusher's point of view http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/joel-bitonio-jersey , I just felt like (Darnold) was the No. 1 pick in the draft. He wasn't the No. 1 pick, but he's definitely playing like it."Well, not quite. But Miller will get a chance for an up-close evaluation Sunday when the Broncos (2-2) travel to MetLife Stadium to take on Darnold's Jets (1-3).Darnold had a terrific NFL debut with two touchdown throws in New York's win at Detroit, but has struggled a bit in the three games since 鈥?all losses 鈥?along with the rest of the Jets' offense. He has just two TD passes in that span and four interceptions, although he didn't toss one last Sunday at Jacksonville."As a team, I feel like we are really close, and for me personally I feel like I'm just on the edge," Darnold said. "I've just got to continue to find completions, hit my guys deep when they're there. It'll come, it's just a timing thing. It's going to click one of these games, I know it is."This might be a tough week to get things going, though. Especially while facing a defense led by Miller, who has four sacks and two forced fumbles this season.And, Darnold realizes Miller will be looking to add to those totals 鈥?despite all the high praise."It's pretty cool that he said it," Darnold said. "It's definitely very humbling, very flattering, but at the same time, we're going up against him. ... I'm just going to go out there and we're going to handle him the way that we need to and go about our business that way."Here are some other things to know about the matchup between the Broncos and Jets:ON THE CASEBroncos quarterback Case Keenum had three touchdown passes in Denver's 27-24 season-opening win against Seattle.He has none in the three games since.Keenum, who signed a two-year, $36 million deal with Denver in March, is the first Broncos QB since John Elway in 1986 to go three straight games with at least 20 throws and no TDs.SKIDDINGThe Jets are looking to snap a three-game losing streak and avoid their fourth four-game skid under coach Todd Bowles.New York ended last season by losing four in a row www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com , and also dropped that many twice in 2016 鈥?with the team finishing 5-11 both years. Bowles is in his fourth season with the Jets and the heat has been turned up a bit under his seat. New York is 1-7 in its past eight, and 3-12 in the past 15.ON NOTICEThe Broncos are coming off their first loss in 66 home games in which they held a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter, and nobody is spared criticism over Denver's Monday night meltdown in a 27-23 loss to the Chiefs."We need more from our main guys on both sides of the ball," coach Vance Joseph said of the Broncos' cratering in crunch time.And from the coaches."The bottom line is in this league in tough games, we have to be our best as coaches when it matters," Joseph said. "You can call a great game for 3陆 quarters, but for half a quarter when the game is on the line, we have to be our best. That is my job to help our players pull these games out."BUTT OUTKeenum said he was encouraged by the way Jeff Heuerman played Monday night (four catches for 57 yards, both career highs) after Jake Butt blew out his left knee at a special teams practice last week, depriving the Broncos of their top tight end for the rest of the season.Keenum said he thinks Heuerman can be the kind of safety valve he's had at that position at other times in his career, such as last year in Minnesota with Kyle Randolph."Yeah, I think Jeff's a great player. I think he showed it the other night that he's in the right place at the right time, big target and he's hard to tackle," Keenum said. "So, a guy I'm excited to get the ball to more and more."WIPE OUTIf Jets running back Isaiah Crowell gets into the end zone, all eyes will be on how he celebrates.He was penalized and given a stern talking to by Bowles after he celebrated his second TD run of the game by wiping the ball against his rear end and firing it into the stands. Crowell ended up getting fined $13,369 by the NFL for unsportsmanlike conduct."It won't happen again," said Crowell, who didn't score at Jacksonville last Sunday 鈥?but got an endorsement deal from a company that sells a toilet paper alternative for men.AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Stapleton contributed.

Following a lengthy training camp and five meaningless
preseason outings Womens Customized Cleveland Browns Jerseys , the Baltimore Ravens finally got the chance to evaluate themselves in a game that counts.Judging by their 47-3 rout of the Buffalo Bills on a rainy Sunday, the Ravens might be pretty darn good.Then again, that might be tough to determine: The Bills looked absolutely awful.Baltimore harassed and embarrassed Buffalo quarterback Nathan Peterman, and the Ravens got three touchdown passes from Joe Flacco in an opener worth savoring."Anytime you go get a win in Week 1, it's great," Flacco said. "Anytime you have a performance like we did, it's great. We just have to make sure we build on this."Flacco's TD passes were distributed to each of the three new receivers Baltimore added during the offseason to enhance a lackluster passing attack.The 11-year veteran went 25 for 34 for 236 yards before being replaced in the third quarter by rookie Lamar Jackson, who did little more than hand off the ball after entering with a 40-0 lead.Making their debut under defensive coordinator Don Martindale, the Ravens held Buffalo to 33 yards and no first downs in going up 26-0 at the half."Whatever they threw at us, we were able to answer," linebacker Terrell Suggs said.LeSean McCoy finished with 22 yards on seven carries and the Bills had 70 yards passing."LeSean McCoy is a threat. You have to start with that," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "Then you have to get to the quarterback and make him throw quick. That's what our guys were able to do today."Making his third NFL start, Peterman went 5 for 18 for 24 yards and two interceptions for a quarterback rating of 0.0.After Baltimore followed two Buffalo miscues with a pair of touchdowns for a 40-0 lead, coach Sean McDermott turned to rookie Josh Allen, who went 6 for 15 for 74 yards in Buffalo's most lopsided defeat since a 56-10 loss to New England in November 2007."Obviously, it wasn't a good showing," Peterman said. "We've got to do a lot better, starting with me."There's a quarterback controversy brewing in Buffalo. Asked about a possible change in starters Baker Mayfield Jersey Elite , McDermott replied, "I'm going to look at everything. ... It's too early to go one way or another."If that was Buffalo's only problem, it might be easier to overcome."We need to focus more on the entire team, not just the quarterback," receiver Zay Jones said.

AO2924-007 Nike Air Max 720 Triple Black is Coming

#15 blair2019 » 17.02.2019, 16:25

On the arrival of Air Max day on February 1st, Nike brought a new model of Nike Air Max 720. Its exaggerated design and excellent air cushion technology are essential for those who have higher requirements on their feet. Recently, there have been new official maps released. The Nike Air Max 720 Triple Black is based on black, and the upper uses a new mesh fabric technology to ensure a sense of texture while greatly enhancing comfort. With a dark blue outsole, the whole pair of shoes adds a little cold temperament. The Swoosh embroidery on the toe is very low-key, and the Nike logo is also on the side of the shoe. The Air Max on the tongue reflects its identity and the foot must have a good performance.

After the seven-day holiday of the Spring Festival, 2019 Sneakers Release will release more double-pound shoes this week. One pair of ultra-popular shoes that have attracted the attention of the whole people, the Air Jordan 6 Black Infrared will be officially re-entered this Saturday. Loyal to the first year of the heel design, the texture of the extraordinary Niu Ba leather body, the infra-red just the right embellishment, with low-key gorgeous 3M details, and finally ended with an ice blue outsole. The upper foot is also very versatile, both calm and individual, and not unassuming.

2019 Mens Jordans,As the All-Star Game approached, the players' All-Star boots were also exposed. The most surprising of these is Paul George's PG3, because the "ASG" theme color matching is quite an outdoor style of the ACG series. The upper is mainly brown, with darker shades of yellow and green, making it really like a pair of outdoor hiking shoes. The leather is reinforced with a nubuck leather material, and it is matched with a functional fabric neckline. It is also very close to the outdoor shoes in texture. The reflective Swoosh Logo on the midsole is the brightest element in this color scheme, reminding everyone that this is a sneaker for the All-Star.

The San Francisco 49ers promoted running back Matt Dayes from

#16 liny195 » 18.02.2019, 06:32

the practice squad on Monday to add some depth for their Monday Night Football contest against the New York Giants. To make room for Dayes http://www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com/pierre-garcon-jersey-authentic , the 49ers released defensive back Tyvis Powell. It seemed likely the 49ers would release quarterback Tom Savage one again, but that was not the case.The decision to release Powell is an intriguing one. Last week he started at strong safety, a week after moving into the starting lineup when Jaquiski Tartt and Antone Exum. Tartt is out this week with the shoulder injury he suffered two weeks ago. Exum was inactive last week due to a concussion, but is through the concussion protocol.The 49ers will go into Monday’s game with Exum and rookie Marcell Harris available at strong safety. Exum seems likely to get the start, and the team is comfortable having the rookie available if anything happens to Exum. Last week was Harris’ first game active with the team. He played 15 special teams snaps and six defensive snaps. Of the six defensive snaps, he played five in a box role, and one in a free safety role. Good morning folks. Another week Womens Jaquiski Tartt Jersey , another loss - so seems to be the trend. While last week’s loss was mostly infuriating due to the late game heroics of Aaron Rodgers, this week’s loss can be aptly described, in my opinion, as tiring. Virtually everything that could go wrong went wrong, including poor play displayed by all three phases of the team, as well as further injuries. It became physically uncomfortable to watch the game, as the pummeling seemed to drag on and on Youth Dustin Hopkins Jersey , without mercy.Where to begin? Considering that the Rams thoroughly demolished the 49ers, there’s really no good place to start. Jared Goff completed 75% of his passes, Todd Gurley scored three combined TDs, and Aaron Donald registered four sacks. The Rams special teams unit blocked a punt for a safety, and found success in the return game to give them advantageous field position - assuming that the 49ers even made it to fourth down without turning the dadgum ball over!The 49ers turned the ball over four times, which appears to be right around average for this squad throughout the season. Two fumbles, and two interceptions. When drives weren’t being killed by seven different sacks throughout the competition (ha!) Rookie Nick Mullens Jersey , they were being killed by handing the ball right over to opponent. Add in a failed fourth down conversion towards the end of the game, and it’s fairly apparent why this team was blown out in such an embarrassing fashion.Both Matt Breida and Adrian Colbert left the game with unspecified, but clearly lower leg injuries. These injuries should be updated later today. Maybe the only bright spot on the team was George Kittle, who had another productive game, which has been the story of his season. In fact, he was more or less the only productive member of the team, outside of kicker Robbie Gould. Kittle’s 98 receiving yards on Sunday put him over 500 for the season - which puts him on track for roughly 1200 yards assuming a 16 game campaign.

Bill Walsh’s life will probably be the subject of a Hollywood movie
in another decade. I guess once they get that Vince Lombardi flick figured out they’ll move onto Walsh. He’s already had some great documentaries http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-marquise-goodwin-jersey , the NFL Football Life episode being one of my favorites. This one is a brief 15 minute documentary I found while lurking around the 49ers reddit page. Given the talent appearing in the video, I have to think it’s something professionally done. The YouTube user Niners Museum made me think this may be playing in the 49ers museum at Levi’s Stadium, but I have no confirmation on this. In any case, the above video is worth a watch because it has greats like Joe Montana, Steve Young Youth Brock Coyle Jersey , George Seifert, and others talking about Walsh’s coaching style. You also get some high quality audio clips of Walsh talking which never get old, and again, sound like something Vince Lombardi would say. You should be able to watch the video above, but if you can’t you can view it on YouTube by going here.49ers have lengthy injury report White Mike McGlinchey Jersey , bring in running backs for workout The San Francisco 49ers have a lengthy injury report following their Week 5 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Kyle Shanahan announced the names that are banged up following the game:RB Matt Breida (ankle) WR Dante Pettis (knee) OT Joe Staley (knee)C Weston Richburg (knee)OT Mike McGlinchey (knee)TE Garrett Celek (quad)LB Reuben Foster (shoulder)Shanahan said Pettis will be out next Monday against the Green Bay Packers, and Breida is doubtful to play. Shanahan confirmed Breida did not have a high ankle sprain but it is serious enough that it will take some time to get back to 100 percent. The rest of the list will be re-evaluated on Thursday when the 49ers return to practice.The team brought in running backs to figure out options behind Alfred Morris and Raheem Mostert. Former 49er Jeremy McNichols was part of the workout, along with four other players Shanahan did not name. Practice squader Jeff Wilson is also a candidate to get promoted. The team will have meetings the next couple days, but does not have practice until Thursday. That gives the team some time to make a decision at the position.Speaking of decisions, Shanahan said the team will likely add a third quarterback this week. Nick Mullens will remain the backup to C.J. Beathard Youth DeForest Buckner Jersey , but the team will add someone at least for the practice squad. Two weeks ago, the team worked out Kyle Allen, Kellen Clemens, Matt Simms, Tom Savage Jimmy Garoppolo jersey , T.J. Yates, Landry Jones, and E.J. Manuel. If they add a quarterback, it will likely be one of those guys.

Good morning New York Giants Hats , New York Giants fans! It’s a Giants game day as the face the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football (8:15 p.m. ESPN). Let’s help you fill the void — and avoid really diving into your work week — with some Giants headlines for the day.Let’s start with a few notes from coach Pat Shurmur’s meeting with reporters on Saturday.On releasing guard Patrick Omameh ...Shurmur called Omameh “one of my favorite people that I’ve met doing this.”“Pat came in and to his credit, he’s been a good soldier. We moved him around. We brought him in. We were going to play him at left guard. We signed him before we knew we were going to draft (G) Will (Hernandez), so he moved over to right guard. He battled for us. You just make changes, and that’s just the way it goes. We’re constantly looking to try to get the right combination of guys. We don’t have a problem playing young players. We’ll constantly change the roster, and then the players that are here, we’re going to continue to develop them. That’s why they play.”On releasing and then bringing back kick returner Quadree Henderson ...“We hoped that he would clear and then be available for us, like he was. Put him on the practice squad New York Giants Hoodie , and now we bumped him up. “In some situations, you have to do that. I think every – you can probably go and talk to every head coach in the league and they’re dealing with working their roster because of injuries sometimes and sometimes it’s because you’re just trying to get the better players.”On the Giants’ red zone difficulties (31st in the league in touchdown efficiency) ...“This is the hundredth time I’ve answered that question,” Shurmur said. “It’s pretty obvious that we’ve got to get the ball in the end zone. There’s other things the people that crunch the numbers will tell you that we’re doing much better (offensively) than a year ago, but it comes down to scoring and preventing scores. When we get down there and we choose to run the ball, we’ve got to make yards, and when we choose to pass the ball, we’ve either got to get a completion or we catch it and run in the end zone Cheap Customized New York Giants Jerseys , or throw the ball and have it completed in the end zone. That’s what we have to do better and that’s really what we’ve been talking about now for quite some time.”Podcast stuffRemember to subscribe to Big Blue Radio on all your favorite podcast apps:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Pocket Casts | Spotify | Stitcher | RSSThe latest episode from Dan and Chris focuses on offensive linemen in the 2019 NFL Draft class.Ed’s episodes last week included a look at the second half of the season and a Giants-49ers preview with Oscar Aparicio of the ‘BetterRivals’ podcast.Around the Inter-GoogleHow NY Giants rookie Sean Chandler has defied the odds in NFL journeyNFL long shot Sean Chandler made the NY Giants as an undrafted rookie, but the Camden native's journey to the league has long been about defying oddsHow the 'steady' Pat Shurmur is handling a rocky first season - New York Giants Blog- ESPNThe first-year Giants head coach is keeping his emotions in check and lines of communication with players open as he navigates a trying season.Giants specialist Quadree Henderson's wild ride back to teamQuadree Henderson is getting a heavy dose of what life is like in the NFL: here today, gone tomorrow, then back again as if you’d never left.The rookie free...What to expect of Giants' Kyle Lauletta: Is he Kirk Cousins?

Valentine’s Views: Thoughts on Ereck Flowers
http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/aldrick-rosas-jersey , Eli Manning after Week 1 Ereck Flowers played an awful football game Sunday for the New York Giants. There was a tripping penalty on the first play of the season. A holding penalty on the third. He allowed a sack and a team-worst 7 of the 18 pressures the Jacksonville Jaguars got in Eli Manning’s 39 drop backs on Sunday. Only two tackles allowed more pressures. Only one who played more than 50 snaps had a lower pass-blocking grade.Flowers’ overall Pro Football Focus grade was just 49.6, only 38.4 as a pass blocker. His play was bad. Anyone who watched saw that. And before you get all crazy about Giants coach Pat Shurmur defending Flowers on Monday by saying, among other things, “He had a lot of really good plays and he had a couple that he’d like to have back,” what is Shurmur supposed to do?The coach can see the film. He knows what he should, and should not, have seen better then you. Or me. Or any Twitter film critic out there. The Giants are stuck with Flowers for this season, though. He’s a Jerry Reese gift that keeps on giving. Or taking, whichever you prefer. He is in the final year of his rookie contract. He wasn’t ever going anywhere. He isn’t going anywhere now. Except back out to right tackle to try again.GM Dave Gettleman did a lot of things in the offseason. He couldn’t work a miracle and either a) find a taker for Flowers or b) make him a better player.Thing is, we know all that already. We know he wasn’t good on Sunday. Shurmur knows it. Flowers knows it. His teammates know it. The question is now whether Flowers can rebound from it, or if this was a sign of things to come.After not speaking to reporters on Sunday, Flowers did so Monday. I’m glad he did. Sunday, he left teammates to speak for, and about, him. Monday http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/will-hernandez-jersey , he took responsibility.Flowers said he “did some good things, but I think there’s some things I need to work on.” He also said he is “trying to get better.”He called the pick 6 where he appeared to get beaten badly around the edge a “hard play.”“The linebacker came, I was supposed to pick him up. He came and then he left, so I stepped to get him and then I had to pop back out last minute. See what I’m saying? I had two people inside first,” Flowers said.He said he is well aware of the criticism heaped upon him from outside the building, but that “it doesn’t matter, I don’t lose sleep over it.”“I lose sleep over what these guys in my room and on this team think about me, that’s it,” he said.All of that is fine. It’s good. It’s what you would expect him to say. No one wants to be bad their job. No one wants to embarrass themselves on national TV. No one wants to hear constant criticism from the media or the Twitter bench jockeys. That isn’t fun. One thing, though, about Flowers’ remarks befuddled — and concerned — me.Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell, the man he was going to be assigned to block most of the day, is in his 12th season. He is a three-time Pro Bowler and was an All-Pro last season. There are voluminous scouting reports on the opposition provided by teams. Access to all the film you could possibly want to study. Yet, Flowers didn’t appear to know what to expect from Campbell on Sunday.In talking about the game-opening tripping penalty, with Campbell lined up against him http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/b.j.-goodson-jersey , he said:“It was a quick pass so I jumped out there too fast on it. Next time I know what type of player I’m against, he’s not really a speed guy, so next time I’m won’t jump out so fast.”Umm ... what? With all of the information at your disposal how can you line up against an All-Pro in the season-opening game and not know what type of player you were going up against?GM Dave Gettleman talks about watching film until his eyes bleed. NFL players are known for studying hours and hours of tape each week — grinding away to find the slightest tendencies, the slightest tells, the tiniest bits of information they can gather to give them an advantage on game days.Some, though, really never master the art of studying the game. And it is an art. You have to know what you’re looking for, and how to use that information when you find it. Those who master it have a better chance of mastering their craft and succeeding on Sunday. Those who don’t will forever be at a disadvantage.Maybe that answer in itself reveals at least part of the reason why Flowers has continued to struggle during his four seasons with the Giants.I have no idea what Flowers’ study habits are. Or whether Flowers, noticeably reticent in speaking to the media, simply didn’t frame his statement well. That remark about Campbell, though, raises more questions than it answers.Quick thoughts on the offensive line in generalYes, the Giants have to be concerned about the offensive line. Still, let’s remember that the Jaguars possess a dominant defense. The Giants were never going to dominate the line of scrimmage in that game.If you think the cavalry is coming to upgrade the offensive line, guess again. Look at this list of available free agent tackles and tell me who you have confidence in. The Giants may add someone http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-aldrick-rosas-jersey , but there’s no guarantee any of them will be better than what the Giants have.Eli Manning wasn’t the problem on SundayIn the press room on Sunday evening and on Twitter or in the BBV comments ever since Sunday’s game ended, there are those who want to blame the loss on quarterback Eli Manning. To put it succinctly, that’s a bunch of nonsense.If you’ve been reading Big Blue View for a while you know where I stand on Manning. I’m in the pro-Manning camp. That doesn’t make me blind to his weaknesses. It doesn’t make me incapable of seeing when he messes up, or admitting he’s done so. In no way, though, can you blame Sunday’s loss on Manning. Unless you are so far into the “I hate Eli, love Davis Webb and can’t believe the Giants didn’t draft Sam Darnold” camp that you can’t see clearly. In my view, Manning missed one throw — ONE!! — that he clearly should have completed on Sunday, the post to Odell Beckham Jr. that could have been a touchdown. The pick 6? Watch the play.I haven’t a clue how you can watch that play and objectively blame the outcome on Manning. Flowers is beaten badly to the outside, forcing Manning to step up. Patrick Omameh is tossed away like a dishrag by Abry Jones, who ends up right in the path of Manning’s throw and swats it into the air. What is Manning supposed to do about any of that?Manning’s not perfect. He didn’t play a perfect game. He took a pounding, pressured 18 times in 39 drop backs per Pro Football Focus, as the offensive line struggled. Let’s not forget the Jaguars have one of the NFL’s best defenses.The Giants showed some warts on Sunday. You can’t convince me that Manning was one of them.Here’s BBV quarterback guru Mark Schofield’s take on Manning’s Sunday:“They call it Overreaction Monday for a reason. This time last year the Ravens were back, the Chiefs were the best team in football and the Patriots had a host of problems. But it’s a long season and the results on a rainy afternoon at MetLife Stadium should be evaluated in context and used as a baseline. Did Eli Manning miss on a throw that might have changed the course of that game? Sure. New York caught Jacksonville in a Cover 4 look and got Odell Beckham isolated on a safety, but Manning’s throw was a step too far. Certainly a throw you’d like to see Manning make http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-janoris-jenkins-jersey , but remember that this was a historically good pass defense a season ago, so making throws against Jacksonville is often a tough ask. The Pick Six was a disaster, and it started with Ereck Flowers up front. He got into his kick slide to try and match the speed of Yannick Ngakoue off the edge, but then stepped inside as he saw Telvin Smith come down to cover Saquon Barkley out of the backfield, assuming the LB was blitzing. He wasn’t, and that gave Ngakoue a free shot at Manning, who tried to climb the pocket and hit Barkley on a Texas route, but the pass was then tipped by Abry Jones and into the waiting arms of Myles Jack. That’s ... bad all around, but Manning did what he could when put in a difficult position. It’s not time to overreact, yet. “There were other missed opportunities, such as the fourth-and-6 throw to Sterling Shepard that came on a wheel route - a tough route to throw - that Manning underthrew by a step. If he hits either that throw, or the earlier post to Beckham, the conversation Monday morning is a much different one.”I will side with Mark, a guy who has played the position and understands it as well as anyone I know. Happy Saturday and welcome to Week 9 of the college football season! The New York Giants might not be saying that they have thrown in the towel on the 2018 season, but the trades of Eli Apple and Damon Harrison should be a pretty clear signal to fans that it’s time to start paying more attention to 2019 draft prospects. Today we have several games that should have great match-ups. We’re starting with one team we have looked at before Color Rush Riley Dixon Jersey , but will keep an eye on throughout the remainder of the season. We also have some other teams that we haven’t checked in on yet. Northwestern at (20) WisconsinFOX - noonI have put the spotlight on Wisconsin a few times already this season, but for a New York Giants team in desperate need of several offensive linemen, being familiar with Wisconsin isn’t a bad idea. As we’ve pointed out before, Wisconsin is one of the few OL factories remaining in college football, and they have several draft-eligible lineman the Giants should be scouting.Players to watchNorthwesternPaddy Fisher (LB)Montre Hartage (CB)WisconsinDavid Edwards (OT)Michael Deiter (OT)Tyler Biadasz (OC)Beau Benzschawel (OG)Olive Sagapolu (DT)T.J. Edwards (LB)Ryan Connelly (LB)(17) Penn State at (18) IowaESPN - 3:30 p.m. A match of ranked opponents usually makes for a good game. When the two are right next to each other in the rankings, it should make for a great game.For the Giants, Penn State is probably the more interesting team from a scouting perspective. With Eli Apple traded and Janoris Jenkins possibly next — or a potential cap casualty — the Giants will need to rebuild their secondary to play James Bettcher’s defense. Penn State cornerback Amani Oruwariye has the size, length, quick feet and body control to play in Bettcher’s aggressive coverage schemes, but he is also something of an unknown. He has 35 games of experience, but never started a game before his fifth year at Penn State. Also, wide reciever Juwan Johnson could intrigue a team which still has few proven options behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard. Johnson has great size at 6-foot-4, 230, and could intrigue as a potential flanker.Players to watch Penn StateAmani Oruwariye (CB)Juwan Johnson (WR)Ryan Bates (OT/OG)IowaNoah Fant (TE)Anthony Nelson (DE)(16) Texas A&M at Mississippi StateESPN - 7 p.m.This is one of those interesting games where the more highly ranked team isn’t the one which is most interesting from a draft perspective. The player to watch this game is Mississippi State defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons.

Redskins First Quarter Defensive Progress Report
The most surprising unit of the team for most fans has been the defense. Many knew what the Redskins were building towards for a couple of offseasons with the attention they gave to the front seven. Over the past three seasons Cheap Alex Smith Jersey , the Redskins have acquired Matt Ioannidis, Jonathan Allen, DaRon Payne, Zach Brown, and Josh Harvey-Clemons. All of whom play an integral part in the most used packages by defensive coordinator Greg Manusky. Not to mention the key players in the secondary who have a mix of veteran leadership, speed Cheap Ryan Kerrigan Jersey , and youth that have contributed early on this season. The Redskins defense currently ranks second in both points and yards per game. Not middle of the pack, or bottom 12, but second. The key to the Redskins great start on defense is their physical play up front. The defensive linemen are now leading a defense that has been led by the edge rushers and linebackers in sacks for the last four seasons. The Redskins have accumulated seven sacks on the year; the defensive line makes up for six of those sacks. The pressure produced by the front seven drastically influenced the teams ranking against the pass, which is fifth best in the NFL. That is not to take away from their secondary who has done more good than bad this year, but the front office’s emphasis on building a bully in the trenches is paying dividends right now, and the play of the defensive line will take this team a long way. The front seven is not only affecting the passing game Youth Chase Roullier Jersey , but they are playing better against the run this year too. Not great, but better, the Redskins have had problems in the first quarter of games for whatever reason it may be versus the run. Nonetheless, they have settled in very nicely as games went along and are currently ranked eighth against the run. If a team can play good offense and stop the run on defense, their chance of winning games increases. The Redskins are on the right track after the first quarter of the season. One of the most important things a defense has going for them is always points allowed, and moving forward it will be essential to continue keeping teams out of the end zone. As the Redskins have struggled offensively in the second half putting up points Youth Josh Doctson Jersey , the defense has excelled in the second half keeping teams out of the end zone. Over the first three games, they have only allowed 20 points, which is just less than seven points per game. Overall they are first in the NFL in percentage scores per drive, at 20.6. This is elite production. Can it be upheld? Maybe not; communications issues still exist, coverage is problematic at times too. But can they remain a good unit throughout the year? Absolutely, they are built that way.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have won three straight games
http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/david-decastro-jersey-cheap , and have finally started to “stack wins”. After their 33-18 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 8, the team has to move on from the win quickly as they now prepare for the Baltimore Ravens, on the road, in Week 9. Something I did last season and I’m going to start again is the Black-and-gold Links article. This is an article where I take stories from quality news sources across the Internet and add them here for your viewing pleasure. I won’t be posting the entire articles, but I’ll link each story and author so that you can read the full article. Today we talk about how the ill-timed fumble by running back Stevan Ridley opened the door for rookie Jaylen Samuels to see some playing time. He didn’t just see time, but he played well in mop up duty for the black-and-gold. Could he now be the primary backup behind the workhorse, James Conner? This will be one of those minor story lines which is worth keeping an eye on this week.Let’s get to the news:Stevan Ridley’s fumble opens door for Jaylen Samuels’ first NFL carries for SteelersBy: Chris Adamski, Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewEvery week of his rookie season, Jaylen Samuels has “gotten a hat,” been activated for gameday and had certain plays drawn up for him in that particular gameplan.For the most part though, on offense, the Pittsburgh Steelers running back merely stood on the sidelines.Sunday during the Steelers’ 33-18 win against the Cleveland Browns, Samuels’ turn finally came. The fifth-round pick from North Carolina State played extensively in the second half and got his first four NFL carries.“I am just waiting on my opportunity, and when my number gets called I just want to make sure I go in there and execute the best that I can,” the 6-foot, 225-pound North Carolina State product said after the game. “So that’s what I tried to do today.”Samuels was in uniform for all six prior games this season but he did not get into one of the games; all but two of his snaps until Sunday had come on special teams. But Samuels served as James Conner’s backup after veteran Stevan Ridley fumbled on the Steelers’ first drive of the third quarter.Ridley’s fumble was his first since 2013 when he played for New England. It apparently was enough for – at least on Sunday – Samuels to finally scale him on the depth chart as the No. 2 to James Conner. He played seven snaps on offense and gained 17 yards on four carries.Steelers teammates say CB Joe Haden getting better with ageBy: Chris Adamski, Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewThe 2007 Florida recruiting class is remembered as one of the greatest incoming classes in college football history. It produced a dozen NFL players, including five who have made the Pro Bowl.But among all that talent, one man stood out. More than Cam Newton, more than Aaron Hernandez, more than a certain set of twins who became longtime NFL interior offensive linemen.“Joe,” one of those twins, Maurkice Pouncey, said, “he was a legend as soon as he walked in at UF.”Pouncey http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/ramon-foster-jersey-cheap , the Steelers center and twin brother of Dolphins center Mike Pouncey, was talking about cornerback Joe Haden, his teammate then and now.“Joe was the best athlete I think any of us have ever seen.”In 2007, Haden became the first true freshman to start at cornerback in the history of the Florida program. Three years later, he was drafted seventh overall by the Cleveland Browns.Two years after that, L.J. Fort was a rookie linebacker with the Browns.“What I remember about him is how athletic he is,” Fort, now with the Steelers, said. “We were playing basketball, and he’s one of the littlest guys. But he would run it. One time, he did a crossover, drove the lane and rose up off one leg and dunked it, and I was like, ‘That’s crazy.’ ”Another former Florida teammate perhaps put it best.“He’s the freakish of freak athletes who can do anything,” Steelers linebacker Jon Bostic said.The Steelers, of course, recognized that when they pounced on the opportunity to sign Haden after he was released by the Browns late in August 2017.But the Haden they got, by his own admission, wasn’t the “freak” with the ankle-breaking crossover.“I think I can probably tell,” Haden said. “I’ve slowed down a little bit.”But a funny thing happened to Haden in losing (some of) that 4.4 speed and 38-inch vertical leap: His Steelers teammates say he is a better cornerback.“He’s a lot better,” said receiver Antonio Brown, who went head-to-head with Haden many times earlier in their careers. “He’s a lot heftier, way better, smarter, more aggressive.”Said Bostic: “We do a lot of things with him http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/alejandro-villanueva-jersey-cheap , and he’s showed up big this year. He has done so many things for us as a defense.”Where would the Steelers pass defense be without Haden? He Julio Jones, arguably the league’s best receiver, to no catches through three quarters of the Steelers’ win over Atlanta earlier this month. A week later against Cincinnati, he was the biggest reason Pro Bowler A.J. Green was limited.While his big-play skills might have have diminished — Haden had 16 interceptions over his first 52 NFL games but has one since joining the Steelers — he is making up for his aging body with his brain.“He’s got a really good understanding of the game and where he should be (and) when he should be there,” defensive coordinator Keith Butler said. “So he looks like he’s a little bit quicker or faster, when maybe he’s not. But he looks like that, and I’m OK with him looking like that.”In the Steelers locker room, Haden is a respected leader with a composed and guru-like presence.“It’s how he carries himself,” Pouncey said. “He’s very professional, very grownup-ish.”Mark Madden: Only geography keeping Steelers-Browns a rivalryBy: Mark Madden, Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewThe rivalry between the Steelers and Cleveland Browns was founded on geography: The cities are 132.9 miles apart.Now, that’s the only thing defining it as a rivalry.The games used to be meaningful and heated. But, in this series, each team has taken a turn as the windshield and as the bug.In the ’50s and ’60s, the Browns were 31-9 against the Steelers.Since Cleveland returned to the NFL as the “new” Browns in 1999, the Steelers hold a 33-6-1 edge.The Browns used to win all the time. That’s hard to believe if you’re not a member of AARP.The Browns have more championships than the Steelers: eight for Cleveland, six for Pittsburgh. (Four of Cleveland’s championships were in the old All-American Football Conference. Their last NFL crown was 1964. The Browns never have played in a Super Bowl. But the occasional 0-16 season makes you less picky when you parse your past.)The Browns were once football’s reigning dynasty. Like the Steelers in the ’70s and New England now.The Browns won all eight of their championships between 1949 and ‘64. They had Otto Graham, the premier quarterback of his time. Then they had Jim Brown, the best running back ever.Their coach, Paul Brown, was so legendary they named the team after him. Chuck Noll was great. But the team isn’t called the Pittsburgh Nolls.But Art Modell bought the Browns in 1963. He fired Paul Brown. The Browns got bad, then moved to Baltimore. It fell apart quickly.In the ’70s, the Steelers grabbed the torch, elevating as quickly as the Browns faltered.The Steelers had been a joke. They made just one playoff appearance before 1972.Founder Art Rooney Sr. is a legend and was the team’s patriarch. That’s because we’ve ignored that he was a terrible football guy.But Dan Rooney took control. The Steelers were a juggernaut during the ’70s, have been mostly good since and are good now.But the Browns still have more championships than the Steelers. Just sayin’.The Browns went 0-16 last season but are a bit better now. (That became true the moment they tied the Steelers in Week 1. The bar was set extremely low.)The Browns have a dominant performer in defensive end Myles Garrett. He could be NFL Defensive Player of the Year if the Browns didn’t stink. Garrett might be the best pass rusher in football. (That includes the All-American Football Conference.)Rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield is far from polished Cheap Chukwuma Okorafor Jersey , but his energy and potential are undeniable. Mayfield didn’t play in Week 1. He’s not yet Otto Graham, but he’s better than Tyrod Taylor. Look out, Steelers.But why do the Browns keep trading good players?They kept pothead receiver Josh Gordon while he was suspended. Now Gordon can play, so they sent him to New England where he’s assumed a meaningful role (like so many misfits before him).They signed running back Carlos Hyde in free agency. Good get. Then the Browns swapped Hyde to Jacksonville. (That reflects faith in rookie back Nick Chubb, which seems justified so far.)The Browns are 2-4-1 and have played four overtime games. Losing by a closer score isn’t necessarily impressive.The Browns and Steelers tied 21-21 in Week 1 because James Conner fumbled away a Steelers win. We ignore Conner’s inconsistency because Le’Veon Bell won’t show up.Ben Roethlisberger didn’t get sacked in each of the last two games. But Garrett had two sacks and a forced fumble in Week 1, and he’s more than a match for Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, the weakest link on a very strong offensive line.But the Steelers will win. They always beat Cleveland. Except when they tie.If the Steelers lose, their season is ruined. The toughest part of it is still to be played, and you don’t deserve to make the playoffs if you go 0-1-1 against the Browns. Baltimore and Cincinnati are bigger rivals. But for the Steelers, today is must-win.Not to worry: Roethlisberger is 10-0 at home against Cleveland. (Terry Bradshaw was 11-0 at home vs. the Browns.)The Browns’ season got off to a rousing start when they were made to look like a bunch of idiots on HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” (That wasn’t much of a stretch for coach Hue Jackson.)But that’s the purpose of “Hard Knocks.” Stupidity sells.HBO would make any team into imbeciles. The ‘72 Dolphins would be presented as the dumbest undefeated team of all time.Just as ABBA had its Waterloo, this game against the Steelers could be bad news for Jackson.Fear not Steelers fans, the best for this team is yet to come Like a drunken teenager skinny-dipping in Crystal Lake on a beautiful moonlit night, I couldn’t escape the feeling that something bad was about to happen all morning prior to the Steelers’ 1 p.m. kickoff against the Browns on Sunday. All we’d heard about since Saturday was how the game would have to be played in almost monsoon-like conditions. My biggest concern is always the wind factor. It’s been my experience that windy conditions severely limit the passing game and often manage to level the playing field when one team is superior to the other offensively, especially at the quarterback position.I recall a Thursday-night matchup between the Bengals and Browns a few years back as a perfect example of the tremendous havoc weather can play. The game appeared on paper as a mid-season mismatch between a young, talented Bengals squad on the rise and — as usual — the hapless Browns. The game was rather damp throughout, but the real issue was the windy conditions. To be successful in a contest played with strong, sustained winds, a quarterback needs superior arm strength and the ability to throw a tight spiral that cuts through the wind resistance. Sadly, Bengals’ QB Andy Dalton had neither. All night long, Dalton’s throws where hysterically off target and literally fell from the night sky like some waterfowl on an episode of Duck Dynasty. One fade-pattern down the Bengals’ sideline got caught in the wind and sailed over their entire bench. It was probably the worst performance of Dalton’s career and it led to a Browns’ upset.Even though Big Ben has the superior arm-strength required to excel in less-than-ideal conditions, I was still concerned the weather would somehow impact the game. Bruce Arians just happened to be doing his first live on-air broadcast and he spoke glowingly about what a great bad-weather QB Ben Roethlisberger has always been. Who better to speak on Ben’s prowess than his former OC and present-day friend? But there was something they all failed to realize.That was then, and this is now. Early in Ben’s career the Steelers were predominantly a power-running football team. The team sought to punish the opposition physically and control time of possession. Ben could execute the game plan and then improvise those three or four miraculous, backyard scramble plays required to win the game. They were built for the harsh weather conditions of the AFC North division made up of teams that play in open-air stadiums in the harsh climate of the Northeast. We had Hall of Famer Jerome Bettis for Pete’s sake, quite possibly the greatest mudder the game has ever seen. The Bus had impeccable balance for such a large man, and he took short Youth Sean Davis Jersey , choppy steps which allowed him to accelerate without slippage. We even had incredible physicality on the outside in power-receiver Hines Ward. But like all great things in life, they eventually come to an end.The modern version of the Pittsburgh Steelers is a grip-it-and-rip-it, big-play down-the-field unit. This offense is dependent on gaining yardage in big chunks. They’re always among the league leaders in plus-25-yard plays. The Steelers’ offense is at it’s best when playing uptempo and spreading the field to create favorable mismatches. So why did the Steelers move away from their tried-and-true methods which seemed to be a better fit in their division? Partly because it was the natural progression of a team with a franchise QB, and partly out of necessity. Seemingly annual rule changes have forced the majority of teams to embrace the air-it-out, path-of-least-resistance, offensive revolution. The creativity of modern offensive coordinators and the corresponding defensive packages implemented by their counterparts are nothing short of breathtaking for any football fanatic like myself. If the old fellas were playing checkers, then these young whippersnappers are most definitely playing chess. Look how far we’ve come. I still remember thinking that Pong was the greatest thing ever, now they have Fortnite — whatever that is. JuJu seems to like it.Like it or not, Big Ben is the face of the franchise. Ben’s arm talent is the straw that stirs the drink. The threat of the big-play down the field keeps the safeties back and opens up the running game. That’s why a backup like DeAngelo Williams or James Conner can step in and perform at a high level of success. I’m not trying to diminish their talents or contributions, but the impact of Ben’s presence on the running game is unmistakable. Furthermore, the only instances where the impeccable Antonio Brown has appeared to be a mere mortal is when Big Ben has failed to take the field.That’s why Ben Roethlisberger must play better moving forward if the Steelers are going to a have a winning season. There were extenuating circumstances which led to Ben’s sub-par performance on Sunday. The wind turned out to be a non-issue, but the downpour definitely contributed to the offensive linemen’s struggles with their footwork throughout the game — especially during the second half when the rain intensified and the field conditions worsened. I’m not concerned with the line moving forward under more normal field conditions and I’ve got the utmost faith that Coach Munchak will identify and alleviate the situation. I also feel Antonio Brown was playing at less than 100% in the game. Nobody covers Brown one-on-one unless they utilize the catch-and-release technique mastered by the Shermans and Ramseys of the league. This philosophy is dependent on the rationale that, if you do it every play, there’s no way they can flag them all. But I never witnessed Browns’ rookie CB Denzel Ward using these tactics during the game. So either young Ward is the second coming of Deion Sanders or Brown wasn’t completely recovered from the injury that kept him out all preseason. He struggled all day to gain any separation on his routes and he didn’t seem to be up to snuff. I expect him to improve this week, barring any setback with the injury. Also, Justin Hunter can't be the third-best receiver on this team. If he is, then the Steelers have a problem. He should be no more than a fourth or fifth option. A tall, fast guy who you put in to take the top off of the defense, much like DHB. He tried to run an out-route — I believe it was in the third quarter — and literally tripped over his own feet. Ben needs to take the rookie Washington under his wing and build a rapport with the young man while explaining what he expects from the position so they can get on the same page — and quickly.Hopefully, Vance McDonald will return this week and offer another athletic threat over the middle of the field, kind of like he did in the playoff loss to the Jaguars. But I wouldn't advise holding your breath to see it. Thus far, the dude’s been an injury waiting to happen.Ben will play better moving forward and so will the offense because of it. This team will only go as far as Ben takes it. Thankfully history shows that can be pretty far. Custom New York Giants Jerseys

Steelers Week 4 injury report: Mike Hilton and Morgan Burnett

#17 liny195 » 18.02.2019, 10:34

officially doubtful to face Ravens The Pittsburgh Steelers should have their entire complement of starting offensive lineman when they take on the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field after both David DeCastro and Marcus Gilbert were full participants at practice once again on Friday. However http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jordan-berry-jersey , while it appears Pittsburgh could see two key offensive players return to action in Week 4, it looks increasingly likely that two starters on defense might be forced to miss Sunday’s game.Mike Hilton and Morgan Burnett are the only names to feature on the Steelers’ final injury report and while their doubtful designations do not bode well for their availability against the Ravens, the absence of any other players on the list is positive news for a number of names who missed time in practice this week.Having sat out training on Wednesday and being limited on Thursday, JuJu Smith-Schuster was able to practice fully on Friday and is expected to play in Week 4. For DeCastro and Gilbert, training every day as full participants is a huge step forward from last week when they were unable to even make it onto the practice field. With Hilton and Burnett both forced to sit out the last day of training and only able to take part in a limited capacity the day before, it would be a big surprise if either of them made enough of a recovery by Sunday night to be cleared to play.Despite a long list of players missing practice throughout the week in Baltimore, their official injury report seems to suggest they only have two real concerns for the game.Steelers News: B.J. Finney no stranger to starting vs. the Chiefs The Pittsburgh Steelers have turned their attention away from the embarrassing tie with the Cleveland Browns and are solely focused on the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2. Something I did last season and I’m going to start again is the Black-and-Gold Links article. This is an article where I take stories from quality news sources across the Internet, and add them here for your viewing pleasure. I won’t be posting the entire articles, but I’ll link each story and author so that you can read the full article. Today, we focus on how reserve guard B.J. Finney is no stranger to filling in for either Ramon Foster or David DeCastro, but also very comfortable going against the Chiefs — again. With DeCastro looking as if he won’t be able to play Sunday Alejandro Villanueva Jersey , Finney is set to get his first start of the 2018 regular season.Let’s get to the news:Once again, B.J. Finney will get a start against the ChiefsBy: Ray Fittipaldo, Pittsburgh Post-GazetteIt’s Kansas City week, which can only mean one thing: B.J. Finney is going to start.For the third consecutive year, Finney will step into the starting lineup due to an injury. He filled in for Ramon Foster the past two years. This year, he’ll start at right guard for David DeCastro, who is officially listed as doubtful but is not going to be able to play due to a fractured bone in his right hand.This will be Finney’s eighth career start and three of them have come against the Chiefs.“It’s kind of funny,” said Finney, a Kansas native who played at Kansas State. “We all get a laugh out of it. Somehow, some way, it always falls into place for me to play Kansas City.”The offensive line hasn’t missed a beat when Finney starts. The Steelers have won all seven games Authentic Vince Williams Jersey , and in the past two against the Chiefs, Finney and the other linemen have paved the way for big games by Le’Veon Bell, who rushed for 144 and 179 yards in those games.James Conner will get the start in place of Bell for a second consecutive week, but the Steelers will be looking for Finney to help keep the ground game moving against the Chiefs.“It’s just a great opportunity for him,” center Maurkice Pouncey said. “Obviously, every year a lot more linemen play than just five guys. You know how physical it is in there inside the trenches. Finney is locked in. He’s always been a key guy. He’s basically like a starter.”Ed Bouchette: Banish overtime, and let tie games flourish again in the NFLBy: Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-GazetteTies are good. Instead of finding ways to eliminate them, the NFL should banish overtime in the regular season.Embrace the tie!Now that the Steelers were involved in a tie game for the first time in 16 years, we’re hearing from many corners how bad they are, how everyone hates them and offering suggestions how to play a game until a winner and loser are determined.The NFL minimized the number of ties starting in 1974 (as did America with the coming of the leisure suit) when it moved to overtime in the regular season. The Steelers were involved in the very first tie under the new rule Youth Bud Dupree Jersey , 35-35 in Denver that year. That tie hurt them so much that they went on to a 10-3-1 season and won their first Super Bowl.Their next tie did not happen until 28 years later, in 2002, when Michael Vick and the Atlanta Falcons came from 17 points down in the fourth quarter to forge a 34-34 tie. The Steelers finished 10-5-1 that season, won the division and beat Cleveland in the playoff opener. Then they lost at Tennessee ... in overtime.What’s interesting about those two previous ties is that so many points were scored in regulation, then the teams were shut out in the 15-minute overtimes.So the Steelers committed their third tie in 45 years since the league decided overtime in the regular season was a good idea.Well, ties can help rid us of the most unfair playoff system in pro sports — the tiebreaker. Why should a team’s playoff hopes possibly hinge on the best net touchdowns scored in all games (procedure No. 10 in a two-team tie) or a coin toss (No. 11)?Ties can help make tiebreakers moot because instead of using some statistical category to put one team in the playoffs over another, the record actually could do it. There still might be teams tied for a playoff spot because their records could match, tied games or no tied games on their resume. But it would be easier for all if they could tie a game or two. The Steelers saved all of us from tiebreaker hell.Tim Benz: Sunday’s Steelers game is even bigger than you thinkBy Tim Benz, Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewThink Sunday’s Steelers game against the Chiefs is a pretty big deal? After a season-opening tie against Cleveland, I’m sure you do.It’s probably even bigger than you think, especially if you envisioned the Steelers as a true Super Bowl contender. If the Steelers drop to 0-1-1 http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jesse-james-jersey , good luck with that.Last year, 13-3 wasn’t even good enough to get homefield advantage over the Patriots. And there’s no indication New England has slipped off its perch as perennial AFC favorite, or even that it’ll lose more than four games this season to jeopardize earning the top seed in the conference.The specter of going to New England and winning the AFC championship game is no less daunting in 2018 than it was in 2017, and we spent the entire 2017 season in Pittsburgh fretting about that potential.That was until “surviving the ground” became part of our collective vocabulary in mid-December.The point is, the margin for error when chasing the Patriots is scant, regardless of what year it is. Or what time of year it is. That’s an augmented reality when you have to play them later in the season, as the Steelers do Dec. 16.The Steelers had a screw-up loss in Chicago last year. That proved fatal when trying to avoid a tiebreaker with the Pats. Might that tie in Cleveland leave them a half-game back in 2018?The Patriots have won at least 12 games per season since the start of the 2010 campaign. Winning 12 of 16 games over one year is hard enough, although Mike Tomlin teams have done it three times in that stretch. Winning 12 of 14 to close out a year wouldn’t be unprecedented, but it would be rare.It was done by the Steelers in 1979, 2001 and ‘04. Custom Dallas Cowboys Jerseys
