    FLORHAM PARK Womens Chuma Edoga Jersey , N.J. (AP)Jeremy Bates is not treating his rookie quarterback with kid gloves.No coddling. No easing into things.The New York Jets offensive coordinator has Sam Darnold on the fast track, and the No. 3 overall pick from Southern California is handling things like a seasoned veteran.”We threw the whole playbook at him,” Bates said Wednesday. ”Just like the same with Josh (McCown) and Teddy (Bridgewater). If you treat them like a rookie, they’ll become a rookie. We threw the whole book at him and see what he can handle – what he needs to work on, just like the other two.”He has done a really good job.”Darnold is competing with both McCown and Bridgewater for the starting quarterback job, and will be given every opportunity this summer to win it.McCown is the incumbent who’s coming off a career year with the Jets, and is a respected leader. But he’ll be 39 on July 4 and clearly isn’t the future of the franchise.Meanwhile, Bridgewater is on a one-year deal with New York after seeing his promising career nearly come to an end two years ago because of a serious knee injury while with Minnesota. He’s still in the midst of a comeback, and will still only be 26 in November.But Darnold has already had some bright moments this offseason, so if he continues to show the progress that made him so coveted by the Jets during the draft – the future could be right now.”The question was, are we giving him bits and pieces of the offense or are we throwing everything at him?” Bates said. ”We’re throwing everything at him. If he can handle it, if he can prove that he is a starter then that would take place when the time comes.”Bates made it clear that it would be coach Todd Bowles’ call on the starter, at quarterback and every other position on the field.But Bates knows a few things about quarterbacks Authentic Chuma Edoga Jersey , having played the position in college at Tennessee and Rice. He has also been a quarterbacks coach in the NFL at several spots, including twice with the Jets and stops in Tampa Bay, Denver and Chicago.And, so far, he likes what he sees in Darnold.”Since rookie camp, he hasn’t flinched,” Bates said. ”Everything that we have thrown at him, he’s been able to handle, so we’re excited.”The 41-year-old Bates was promoted by Bowles in February to replace the fired John Morton as offensive coordinator. He’ll continue to serve as New York’s quarterbacks coach, but this marks the first time since 2010 that he’s running the entire offense.Bates followed Pete Carroll from USC to Seattle, but was fired as offensive coordinator after just one season with the Seahawks. After a year out of the NFL, Bates was hired by Lovie Smith in Chicago as the Bears’ quarterbacks coach. When Smith was fired at the end of the 2012 season, Bates was one of several assistants not retained by new coach Marc Trestman.Bates used that time to do some soul searching and hit the road – literally. He spent five months hiking the 3 Chuma Edoga Jersey Boys ,000-mile Continental Divide Trail, which includes mountainous terrain in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico. He has said it made him a better person, and hopes his previous experience – and failures – with Seattle will help him thrive in this opportunity with the Jets.”I did take a little sabbatical,” Bates said. ”Any time you get fired, you can look at it one or two ways. You can either not think about it and try to become a better person and a better coach or you can just move on. I obviously took a lot of time by myself and thought about some things and I look forward to seeing how they turn out.”All eyes are obviously on the quarterbacks with the Jets. But, Bates has plenty of work to do with the rest of the offense, too.Isaiah Crowell was added to the running backs group, which includes Bilal Powell, Thomas Rawls and Elijah McGuire and has a chance to be a playmaking bunch in the backfield.Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse and Quincy Enunwa lead a receiving corps that isn’t flashy but could be one of the most hotly contested positions in training camp Infant Chuma Edoga Jersey , especially if Terrelle Pryor is healthy from arthroscopic ankle surgery and youngsters Chad Hansen and ArDarius Stewart progress in their second seasons.There’s no clear-cut starter at tight end, with Eric Tomlinson, Jordan Leggett, Neal Sterling, Clive Walford, Bucky Hodges and rookie Chris Herndon all vying for spots.”Right now, I don’t have a crystal ball, so we’re still trying to figure out what we do best,” Bates said. ”We’re throwing the whole playbook at them and deciding what we can feature and maybe some things we can put in the background and work on next spring.”I will say this, there is a good vibe. There is good energy with the offensive unit. They’re coming to work every day and they’re getting better. It’s exciting to be here right now on the offensive side.”— The night before the Super Bowl is the annual election of that year’s Pro Football Hall of Fame class. The Class of 2019 has eight members, including former Jets center Kevin Mawae.Mawae was one of Bill Parcells’ biggest free agent signings with the Jets. The center came to New York from Seattle in 1998 and stayed until 2005. In the green and white, Mawae set the standard for center play in the league, earning six trips to the Pro Bowl as a member of the Jets. In six of his eight seasons Chuma Edoga Jersey Draft , he was named to the AP’s First or Second All Pro team.Mawae’s signing began a run of excellence at the center position that lasted almost two decades. It continued the year after he left when the Jets drafted Nick Mangold in the first round.Over the last two decades, a number of people who had brief stints with the Jets have been elected to the Hall of Fame but were really known for their work with other teams. Ronnie Lott, Art Monk, Brett Favre, Jason Taylor, and LaDainian Tomlinson might have played for the Jets, but they weren’t really Jets. Kevin Mawae was and will always be a Jet. One of our guys made it today, and it is well-deserved.The other inductees this year will be new members of the Jets brief stint club Ty Law and Ed Reed along with Champ Bailey, Tony Gonzalez, Pat Bowlen, Gil Brandt, and Johnny Robinson.

    http://www.patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-jonathan-jones-jersey , the NFL still has jurisdiction over multiple incidents that potentially violate the Personal Conduct Policy. As to one of those incidents, the NFL has issued a directive to Brown that sheds light on whether and to what extent the league is taking the situation seriously.The lawyers who represent the second accuser issued a statement on Friday afternoon explaining that Brown had been advised to “have no further contact with our client, either directly or through his associates,” and that the NFL “also advised us that it contacted Mr. Brown’s representative and reiterated that Mr. Brown was to cease and desist efforts to contact or intimidate our client.”The accuser’s lawyers explained in the statement, issued before the Patriots released Brown, that they had a “productive conversation” with NFL officials on Friday morning Rex Burkhead Jersey , and that the league has “given us every indication that they take this matter very seriously.”“We thank them for moving swiftly and decisively,” the accuser’s lawyers said in the statement. “The NFL has pledged to conduct a thorough investigation under its Personal Conduct Policy. We will cooperate fully with the NFL in this investigation to ensure that the threats and intimidation against our client cease, and that she and her family remain safe.”A second statement was issued after the Patriots released Brown.“The NFL and the Patriots clearly took our client’s concerns seriously,” the lawyers said. “She wanted the threats and intimidation to stop and we hope that will be case. The NFL has assured us that regardless of Antonio Brown’s roster status, it will continue to investigate all claims regarding his behavior. We are gratified that the NFL recognized that it has an important role to play in policing player conduct that is sexually harassing and threatening.”Brown has in many ways been his own worst enemy in recent weeks, poisoning relationships and behaving badly and running his tally for former NFL teams in 2019 to three. CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals‘ depleted defense went with an all-out blitz Womens Donald Trump Jersey , hoping to push the Steelers out of field goal range. Instead, Ben Roethlisberger threw a short pass that Antonio Brown turned into a 31-yard touchdown with 10 seconds left, and the Bengals’ litany of last-second losses grew with another mindboggling finish.Brown’s catch-and-run into the end zone gave Pittsburgh a 28-21 victory Sunday that evened up the AFC North and left the Bengals (4-2) trying to figure out what happens next. That final play will stick with them for a while.Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said Monday that he decided to blitz in hopes of pushing the Steelers (3-2-1) out of Chris Boswell’s range. The Steelers trailed 21-20 and could have won with a field goal.“We just decided to go after them,” Austin said. “I want our guys to play aggressive, we’re playing to win, and they had a good play called.”When Roethlisberger saw the Bengals had no safety guarding against a big play http://www.patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-jordan-richards-jersey , he knew Brown would have a clear path to the end zone. He took the snap and quickly tossed it to Brown, who ran untouched for Pittsburgh’s seventh straight win in the series.In the aftermath, the Bengals were left trying to pick up the pieces of a defense that lost numerous players and is headed to Kansas City for a game Sunday night. The Chiefs (5-1) have one of the league’s top offenses and are coming off a 43-40 loss to New England.Linebacker Nick Vigil left in the first quarter with an injured left knee and is out indefinitely. Cornerback Darqueze Dennard hurt his right shoulder late in the first half and didn’t return. Safety Shawn Williams left with a concussion in the third quarter. Others were in and out of the lineup with injuries.The defense starred in Cincinnati’s solid start, scoring three touchdowns and finishing off three games by getting turnovers. With a chance to end the Bengals’ streak of abysmal finishes against the Steelers, the defense failed to hold on.The Steelers got the ball at their 23-yard line with 1:12 left and three timeouts. Roethlisberger completed passes of 8 and 10 yards to JuJu Smith-Schuster. A holding call on cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick provided a first down.Roethlisberger completed another pass that Smith-Schuster turned into a 23-yard gain and put them in field goal range with 15 seconds left and two timeouts. That play put the Steelers in position to pull it out.“That was one there that he found the hole in the coverage,” Austin said. “Every coverage has got a little bit of a weakness in it Stephon Gilmore Jersey , and where they hit us was right behind the linebackers and just in front of the safeties.”Although Boswell has struggled this season, he has never missed a kick at Paul Brown Stadium. He had a game winner with 14 seconds left in Pittsburgh’s 18-16 playoff victory in 2015. He had another on the final play of a 23-20 victory last December.Austin decided to take a chance with a blitz, hoping to drop a runner for a loss or sack Roethlisberger, rather than leave Boswell in position to kick another game winner.“I didn’t want to leave it into the field goal kicker’s hands and allow him because it’s not every day you block a field goal,” Austin said.DEFENDING BURFICT: Coach Marvin Lewis declined again on Monday to address linebacker Vontaze Burfict’s latest hit to Brown’s head . Burfict hit Brown in the shoulder and helmet with his forearm as the receiver was being tackled by Shawn Williams and Jessie Bates.Brown was shaken up and left the game for a couple of plays. The officials didn’t flag the play, but the NFL could discipline Burfict after reviewing it. Burfict was suspended by the league for hitting Brown in the head during the 2015 playoff game and was suspended for the start of the next season. He also was suspended for the first three games of the 2017 season for an egregious hit during a preseason game. He sat out the first four this year for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.“Everybody makes a comment on everything that 55 does Womens Montee Ball Jersey ,” Lewis said, using Burfict’s number. “They don’t comment on anything anybody else does, so let’s leave it at that.”

Cooper finished with 217 yards on 10 catches. The Eagles never had the ball in overtime.There were two touchdowns scored by each team in the final eight minutes of the fourth quarter.Though the Cowboys came out on top, this was a tough afternoon for first-place teams around the league.Pittsburgh lost at Oakland 24-21, when Derek Carr’s touchdown pass to Derek Carrier with 21 seconds left gave the Raiders the lead. The Steelers played four possessions with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who returned from a rib injury in the fourth quarter and threw the go-ahead touchdown pass with 2:55 left.The Steelers (7-5-1) lead Baltimore (7-6) by a half-game in the AFC North.New Orleans trailed 14-3 late in the third quarter at Tampa Bay, before coming back to win and clinch the NFC South title. Kansas City needed quite the rally to catch Baltimore and beat the Ravens in overtime.New England failed to clinch the AFC East, losing 34-33 to Miami on a two-lateral play on the final snap. Houston’s nine-game winning streak ended at home in a loss to Indianapolis, cutting the Texans‘ lead in the AFC South to two games.The other two division leaders square off tonight in Chicago, with the Los Angeles Rams visiting the Bears. Nice job, rookie.A guy who has yet to take a snap in a real NFL game has the best-selling jersey in the league.Saquon Barkley, the All-America running back from Penn State selected second overall in the draft by the Giants, is the leader according to DICK’S Sporting Goods Jersey Report .Barkley is one of two rookies in the top 10; top overall pick Baker Mayfield Sterling Shepard Jerseys 2019 , Cleveland’s quarterback, is ranked ninth.Only one defensive player makes the top 10: Denver linebacker Von Miller.Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz ranks second, followed by Tom Brady.A year ago, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was first, followed by Brady.

Maaddi, who has covered Philadelphia sports since 2000, not only interviews dozens of players and their families, he chronicles the ups and downs of the team’s title season with a pinpoint focus on the power that belief — whether it be in God or each other — can bring.“The real story of the Super Bowl champions can’t be told without talking about the strong faith and the unique bond many of the players shared,” Maaddi says. “I’ve never seen a team that was more united than the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles, and their faith is what created that special brotherhood, and their faith is what allowed them to persevere and overcome so much adversity and ultimately become champions.”IN DEMANDThe Dallas Cowboys are the NFL’s No. 1 team, while the Jacksonville Jaguars and San Francisco 49ers are coming on strong?Who says?Ticket buyers on the secondary market Darian Thompson Jerseys 2019 , according to StubHub .For the fifth straight year, demand for Cowboys tickets is the highest in the league. StubHub sees an increase of nearly 300 percent in sales over the average when the Cowboys are the visiting team.“The Cowboys are an iconic franchise with a reputation that continues to draw a crowd season after season,” says Scott Jablonski, StubHub’s general manager of NFL, NBA & NHL.But a Cowboys contest is not the most-sought ticket heading into the season. That game actually is in London, where the Jaguars host the Eagles on Oct. 28. It’s the first time an international series game has appeared in StubHub’s top 10 most in-demand games.“Eagles fans have always been passionate, but their Super Bowl win has truly ignited the fan base to unprecedented levels,” says Jablonski. “We’re seeing Eagles fans willing to travel long distances to watch their team play, including internationally for their game in London.”The Jaguars and 49ers have seen large demand growth compared to last season; San Francisco has moved up from 19th to sixth, while sales for Jacksonville games are up 318 percent following the team’s run to the AFC title game last January.ROSEN ON LEBRONLike many — probably most — athletes, Josh Rosen is impressed by the career and stature of LeBron James. The rookie quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals, who has drawn criticism from some for being arrogant because of his frankness and willingness to take a stand White Kevin Zeitler Jerseys , has strong praise for the latest venture of the NBA’s biggest star.Asked by Adam Schein on his SiriusXM satellite radio program how Rosen sometimes has been perceived, the 10th overall selection in this year’s draft noted: “I think it is always about crafting the message. There is always a good intention at heart; anything I do or say in putting myself out there is for the sake of helping others and trying to give people a voice who don’t actually have one.“And on that topic, LeBron’s new show, ‘The Shop,’ it is exactly what this country means when they talk about ‘We need to have a conversation.’ And people are like, ‘What does that even mean, it’s conceptualist.’“This show and that concept of athletes taking a lead and taking a role of sort of progress is really admirable, and that is exactly what we all should be rooting for, not criticizing.”

    that qualified for the NFL playoffs in 2018. In every game White Matt Milano Jerseys , the Bills came out with a loss.Buffalo played half of the playoff field for the season, as one of the teams (the New England Patriots) was a team Buffalo played twice. Buffalo played nearly the entire AFC playoff field, losing games against the Patriots, the Los Angeles Chargers, the Baltimore Ravens, the Houston Texans, and the Indianapolis Colts during the regular season. The only AFC playoff team that the Bills didn’t play was the Kansas City Chiefs.Buffalo played one playoff team from the NFC, the Chicago Bears, and that didn’t go well, either. The Bills lost that game 41-9, making it the second-worst defeat of the season. The worst defeat came in the season opener, a 47-3 shellacking at the hands of the Ravens.The Bills allowed 225 points in those seven games, an average of 32.1 points per game. For the season, Buffalo allowed 374 points, or 23.4 points per game. The Bills scored 68 points in those games, an average of only 9.7 points per game. For the season, Buffalo scored 269 points, or 16.8 points per game. So they were outscored 32.1 to 9.7 against playoff teams. Yikes.In 2017 Matt Milano Jerseys 2019 , Buffalo played six games against playoff teams; they lost four of those contests (both games against New England, and once each to the New Orleans Saints and the Carolina Panthers), but they pulled out victories against the Atlanta Falcons and the Chiefs. If the Bills wish to return to the playoffs in 2019, they’ll need to play better against the league’s top competition. The first draft class of the Buddy Nix regime was not productive long-term" Bills HistoryBuffalo Bills NFL Draft CoverageBuffalo Bills NFL Draft Retrospective: 2010New,34comments The first draft class of the Buddy Nix regime was not productive long-termEDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options for:Buffalo Bills NFL Draft Retrospective: 2010TwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailIn order to prepare for observing the Buffalo Bills’ 2019 rookie class during their first training camp, we thought it would be fun to look back at the past seven drafts of the Bills, as a sort of retrospective. Our goal: an examination of where the team found successes, where the it was led astray and a chance to remember some of the more forgotten players from the past nine years. First up is Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey’s inaugural draft after taking over as general manager and head coach, respectively. The former Dallas Cowboys and Georgia Tech head coach quickly installed a new 3-4 defense and hired defensive coordinator George Edwards to further that cause. Going into the draft, the team needed players that fit the new defense and more playmakers to surround Lee Evans and Roscoe Parrish.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="Ag5QEh">Round 19th overall RB C.J. SpillerSpiller spent most of his career sharing time with fan-favorite Fred Jackson, which likely stunted his production—even if it was better for the team. His rookie and second-year seasons included a few decent flashes, but his break-out campaign came in his third year. After Jackson went down with an injury in 2012, Spiller picked up the slack by running for more than 1,200 yards, catching 43 passes for 459 yards and being selected to the Pro Bowl. New coach Doug Marrone chose to continue splitting carries between a now-healthy Jackson and Spiller for two more years, although a collarbone injury shortened Spiller’s 2014 season. In 2015, the team chose not to re-sign him and saw him bolt for the New Orleans Saints and Sean Payton’s offense.Verdict: Minor HitFrom 2012-2014, the ninth overall pick was one of the most feared running backs in the game with an elite yards-per-carry average and an ability to contribute in the passing game. He just never saw enough opportunities either due to the presence of Fred Jackson or injuries.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="vt0Xko">Round 241st overallDT Torell TroupAfter spending his rookie season as a part-timer White Vontae Davis Jerseys , Troup suffered a herniated disc and a fractured spine, missing most of the 2012 season and was released following training camp in 2013. He finished his Bills career having only started two games and making 17 tackles. Verdict: Major MissIt’s always disappointing to unknowingly draft a bust, especially in the second round, but it’s ten times worse when that bust is mostly due to injury, as opposed to a lack of effort. Troup’s work ethic in his rehab was worthy of praise, but his body just didn’t allow him to contribute.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="lUDE52">Round 3 72nd overallDT/DE Alex CarringtonComing from small-school Arkansas State, Carrington wasn’t able to establish himself as a starting 3-4 defensive end in his first two years, but did manage to become a productive backup in 2012. The following year, Carrington was primed and ready to be a starter in Mike Pettine’s new hybrid scheme after a strong training camp, but tore his quad in the third game of the season. He left for the St. Louis Rams in free agency in 2014, but did come back to the Bills as a run-stopping 4-3 defensive end in 2015 before tearing his quad again.Verdict: Minor MissA victim of both injury and the team’s constant changing of defensive scheme, Carrington’s career is a story of poor timing. Who knows how different his career would’ve been if he managed to stay healthy and productive in 2013. As it stands, he was a minor miss in the third round for a team that desperately needed quality defensive starters.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="s4xRhB">Round 4107th overallWR Marcus EasleyAnother small school, developmental player, Easley never actually developed into a receiver. A knee injury and mysterious heart ailment kept him off the field for two years, stunting any development, although in 2013 he emerged as a special-teams ace and even managed to earn a second contract with the team. Another knee injury in 2015 led him to spending 2016 on injured reserve and his eventual release.Verdict: Minor MissThe special-teams play helps his cause, but considering Easley only caught three regular-season passes in his five-year Bills career and wasn’t even a reliable backup for the team is a bit of a disappointment Vontae Davis Jerseys 2019 , even for a fourth rounder.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="zMPwk3">Round 5 140th overallOT Ed WangIt was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it career for Wang, who was drafted out of Virginia Tech for his size, but he only lasted a single season as a reserve lineman and was quickly released by the team early in the 2011 season.Verdict: Major MissFifth rounders are supposed to provide their teams with depth at key positions, and Wang’s lone season with the team prevented even that low bar from being crossed.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="BalSSi">Round 6 178th overallOLB Arthur MoatsBeing a sixth-round pick and a bit small for a pass rusher, Moats managed to last through his rookie contract with the team thanks to his ability to provide depth at multiple linebacking positions and to be a situational pass rusher when called upon. He was also a stalwart starter on special teams. Although coming off his best season statically in 2013, Moats signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers thanks to a better defensive fit.Verdict: Minor Hit’Don’t Cross The Moats’ was an underdog story who was easy to root for, and his stalwart presence on the team with occasional flashes of brilliance means he was a solid pick in the sixth round.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="psZIhp">Round 6 192nd overallOLB Danny BattenYet another small-school moonshot, Batten succumbed to a shoulder injury his rookie season and, with the team desperate for pass rushers, didn’t make much of an impact the following year. He was unceremoniously cut in 2012.Verdict: Minor MissLike Wang, you’d have hoped that Batten would’ve shown enough spark to be considered a long-term depth option on a team begging for pass rushers, but he didn’t even manage to make it three years with the team.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="NTMinF">Round 7209th overallQB Levi BrownBrown actually saw the field for five snaps as a rookie in a Week 17 loss against the New York Jets, throwing a quick interception. He was cut following the 2011 preseason.Verdict: Minor MissIt’s tough to judge a seventh-round quarterback selection, given the utter lack of practice snaps Brown probably received his rookie year, but you would’ve liked to see him stick around for another year or two.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="5HAzmm">Round 7 216th overallOT Kyle CallowayCalloway never managed to stand out during his rookie training camp. The Bills were quick to part ways with him—releasing him during the first round of cuts in August 2010.Verdict: Minor MissIowa linemen come with great reputations and Calloway played on the same college line as Bryan Bulaga. Unfortunately he just wasn’t athletic enough to cut it in the NFL.

    determines specifically how much money the Commissioner will make in any and every given year.According to https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Terrance-Mitchell-Jersey , Steelers owner Art Rooney II has become the new chairman of the Compensation Committee. He replaces Falcons owner Arthur Blank.Joining the Compensation Committee is Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill. The other members are Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, and Giants co-owner John Mara.Although Roger Goodell has a contract that extends multiple years into the future, much of his total compensation package comes in the form of a bonus. It’s the Compensation Committee that determines this number, each and every year.The NFL previously structured the league office as a tax-exempt trade organization. Under growing public pressure that mischaracterized the move as an effort to not pay taxes (the individual teams paid taxes on the money that passed through to them) Jarvis Landry Jersey , the league changed its designation. That move allows the league to now keep secret the money paid to Goodell and other key executives. GM warns Browns fans not to believe the hype surrounding the team, but it is too late for that." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesDawgs EDTThe Cleveland Browns will open the 2019 regular season dealing with a level of expectations that the franchise has not encountered in more than three decades. A winning record will be considered, by some, a “disappointment.” A playoff berth will suffice for many; while only a Super Bowl run will be enough for a segment of the fan base that has overdosed on hype since the end of last season. The man who has played a large role in creating the current team is general manager John Dorsey, who upon being hired in December of 2017 stated his desire to “re-awake this sleeping giant Genard Avery Color Rush Jersey , the Cleveland Browns.” (That was a phrase borrowed from Gabe Paul, who during his time as general manager of the Cleveland Indians in the 1980s often talked about how Cleveland was a baseball town in search of a winning team.)It only took until midway through the 2018 season for the giant to awake, as the Browns closed out the year by winning five of their final seven games and just miss out on their first winning season since 2007.Now, however, Dorsey wants to temper the expectations.Speaking at last week’s press conference to announce Cleveland as the host of the 2021 NFL Draft https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Austin-Corbett-Jersey , Dorsey looked to temper the expectations of a rabid fan base, per The Athletic’s Zac Jackson via Bleacher Report:It’s nice that Dorsey wants everyone to slow down a bit, but there is no way he can put that genie back in the bottle. While attendance and interest in the Indians and Cleveland Cavaliers has always ebbed and flowed based on those team’s ability to compete, the Browns are the region’s top team and their grip on that distinction has only grown tighter in recent months. The Browns started their latest rebuild in 2016 and Dorsey has quickly turned a solid foundation into a team that has caught the attention of everyone in the NFL. And with that has come expectations that may not be completely realistic, but that is the reality for a fan base that has been waiting 30 years for a team that they can truly believe in.Dorsey created this monster and no matter how much he or head coach Freddie Kitchens remind fans that there is still a lot of hard work ahead Nick Chubb Jersey , the excitement is only going to build throughout the summer.The giant is very much awake. It is now up to the Browns to make sure it does not go back to sleep.

    Randall Cobb Color Rush Jersey , the Green Bay Packers take the field against the Atlanta Falcons. Dave Choate of The Falcoholic was kind enough to answer some of our questions about the Falcons and provide some insight into their strengths and weaknesses.APC: With the Falcons nearly two years removed from their last Super Bowl appearance and a playoff berth highly unlikely in 2018, how do you evaluate Dan Quinn’s performance? Does he have to worry about his job security, or will the team retain him for next season regardless of how the next four weeks unfold?We’d like to thank Dave and The Falcoholic for his insight. Be sure to check out our Q&A session over there, as well as their fantastic coverage of all things Falcons. As always, keep your internet machines tuned to Acme Packing Company this Sunday for our comprehensive game-day coverage of Falcons versus Packers. Over a two week span, Acme Packing Company takes a look at each position group on the Green Bay Packers and provides grades and insight on how they performed in the 2018 season. Today, we examine the defensive line.Exiting the 2017 season, the Green Bay Packers had one star on their defensive line and another player in the midst of a breakout. With Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark leading the way, the front line was poised for a good season in 2018, provided that they got good health.Then, after Brian Gutekunst took over as general manager, he signed an unrestricted free agent to start at the other spot on the line. The new face seemed like a perfect match with the established starters, sliding in comfortably at the 5-technique spot and likely providing additional interior pass rush.Unfortunately, it didn’t work out so well. As APC discussed earlier on Monday, injuries hammered this unit, with all three of those players ending the season on injured reserve. Instead of the big-name signing making a big impact, it was a surprising undrafted rookie who stepped up down the stretch.Here’s a look at the new faces on the Packers’ line in 2018 and how they fared.Muhammad WilkersonHow acquired: Signed as unrestricted free agentContract: One year, $5 million ($1.5 million signing bonus)2018 Stats: 3 games played, 3 starts; 5 total tackles (2 solo)Reunited with his old coordinator Mike Pettine, Wilkerson was supposed to revive his NFL career in Green Bay after an ugly falling out with the New York Jets in 2017. Instead https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Corey-Linsley-Jersey , Wilkerson looked like a player trying to find his footing for two-and-a-half games before a gruesome broken ankle ended his season early. In signing Wilkerson, Brian Gutekunst found a high-potential player for a fairly low dollar amount and only a single year on the books; it’s just unfortunate that injury derailed his chance to become an impact player.James LooneyHow acquired: 2018 seventh-round draft pick (#232 overall)Contract: Two years, $1.05 million2018 Stats: 3 games played; no statsThe first of three seventh-round draft picks that the Packers had in 2018, Looney is an athletic project on the defensive line who needs time to develop and bulk up for the NFL. Therefore, it was no surprise when the team released him at the end of training camp and brought him back on the practice squad.With injuries hammering the defensive line, Looney finally received his call-up to the 53-man roster late in the season, but he failed to make any impact. He received just 19 snaps in his three games, playing behind the next two names on this list as well as second-year pro Montravius Adams.Tyler LancasterHow acquired: Signed as undrafted rookie free agentContract: Two years, $1.05 million2018 Stats: 12 games played, 5 starts; 26 total tackles (19 solo); 1 tackle for loss, 1 QB hitThe Packers brought Lancaster in for a visit before the 2018 NFL Draft, and when the team made its initial round of undrafted free agent signings, Lancaster was on the list. However, given the perceived depth on the line, it seemed unlikely for the former Northwestern Wildcat to crack the roster, despite a solid Pro Day workout and decent tape as the anchor in the middle of Northwestern’s line. It was a lack of big plays that likely resulted in him going undrafted, and that contributed to him starting the season on the practice squad.But when Wilkerson went down with his injury, Lancaster was the player called up rather than Looney. After seeing just a few snaps per game early on, by the end of the year Lancaster was in the starting lineup and was making those splash plays, particularly in the run game.Lancaster may never be a pass-rusher Jaire Alexander Jersey , but he’s also not just a player who can hold his own at the point of attack — he showed an ability to shed blockers and make some athletic plays at the line of scrimmage. As such, he’ll be in line to earn a key rotational role once again in 2019.Fadol BrownHow acquired: Claimed off waivers from RaidersContract: One year, $480,0002018 Stats: With Packers — 4 games played, 3 total tackles (2 solo), 2 QB hits; With Raiders — 8 games played, 17 total tackles (14 solo), 1 tackle for loss, 2 QB hits, 1 pass defendedAfter signing with the Oakland Raiders in 2017 as an undrafted rookie, Brown spent that entire season on the practice squad before making the 53-man roster in 2018. However, Oakland waived him in early December, which was fortuitous timing for the Packers, who scooped him up.Brown played 39 snaps on defense over the final month, but he flashed a bit of pass-rushing ability on occasion. He also alertly made a stop on a fake punt against the Chicago Bears, tackling Benny Cunningham for a one-yard loss near midfield after a big run stop on third-and-short the play before. There’s some potential here in Brown, who moves well for his size. However, his contract expires in March.

    KANSAS CITY https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Jack-Doyle-Jersey , Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs didn’t draft Patrick Mahomes merely to make the playoffs.Matt Cassel accomplished that, and quarterbacks Steve Bono, Elvis Grbac, Trent Green and Alex Smith went one better by making it to the divisional round. Smith even won a wild-card game, the first playoff victory by the long-suffering Chiefs since Joe Montana led them to the AFC title game in the 1993 season.No, the Chiefs didn’t trade up to select Mahomes just to make the playoffs.They did it to win in the playoffs.Now, Mahomes gets his first chance when the first-year starter leads the AFC West champions against the Colts — their longtime playoff nemesis — on Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium.Win and the young All-Pro quarterback has the Chiefs one game away from playing in the Super Bowl, lose and Mahomes has to wait a full year to get another crack at wiping away the stink of all those playoff failures.“A playoff run in general would mean a ton to everyone in this community, including us. I know the history,” Mahomes said, “but at the same time, we are a different generation.”That may be true, but he was on the sideline last season for the latest postseason letdown.Mahomes was given his freshman season to learn the ropes under Smith Adam Vinatieri Jersey , who ended a streak of eight straight playoff defeats by beating Houston in the wild-card round in January 2016. But they lost the following week at New England to end their playoff run, then lost at home to the Steelers in the divisional round in 2017 and blew a big lead against the Titans in the wild-card round a year ago.Three defeats after that rarest of playoff wins.The sting has been even more brutal at home, where the Colts have won just as many playoff games as the Chiefs (two apiece) over the years. Both of the Chiefs’ wins were in the wild-card round.They’ve never won a home playoff game in the divisional round or beyond.Yet if there’s any reason to believe that stretch of futility will end Saturday, it just may be the optimistic kid with the big arm and curly Mohawk. Bono, Grbac and the rest never put up the kind of numbers that Mahomes has this season, nor did they engender the same kind of confidence in their teams.Mahomes exudes poise. And the rest of the Chiefs can feel it.“It’s the way he plays,” Chiefs center Mitch Morse said recently. “Not only his talent, which is uncanny, but the way he prepares, the way he conducts himself in the huddle, and then the guy has got a swagger about him that’s infectious.”There is no denying this is a new experience, though. Mahomes only played in one bowl game in three seasons at Texas Tech, much less an NFL playoff game with the entire football world watching.“So far I haven’t seen anything that’s too big for Pat. I’m not even worried about that Marvin Harrison Color Rush Jersey ,” coach Andy Reid said Monday, just before the Chiefs resumed practicing following a well-earned week off.“He’s going to get himself ready, just like he does every week, to play against a good football team,” Reid said. “But I don’t think he’s wired the other way. I’m not predicting anything, I’m just telling you, matter of fact, how he’s wired, how he goes about his business.”That doesn’t mean Reid hasn’t pulled him aside for a few extra chats.“Everything is a little faster in the playoffs. That’s how things go,” Reid said. “At the same time, he has to be himself and continue to lead and play like he has been doing. I don’t think he will have a problem with that. I think he understands that. He is wired the right way to handle all of it.”Mahomes said he’s chatted with Smith about his postseason experience, and he’s soaked up what he can from the veterans in his locker room. Defensive back Ron Parker, linebacker Justin Houston and fullback Anthony Sherman are among those who have been part of several postseason letdowns.As they take the field with Mahomes on Saturday https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Tarell-Basham-Jersey , they have a chance to scribble over that history.“I mean, we are definitely ready. We know what it’s going to take,” Mahomes said. “It’s going to take a full effort from everyone, every single day, to the game and hopefully on. We know that you have to capitalize on every single play. You can’t let one play get you down for the next. The next play is the most important play. We are excited we get the chance to do that.” Wide receiver Dontrelle Inman enjoyed his year in Indianapolis so much that he would like to do it all over again next fall.In an interview with CBS Sports Radio, Inman said he hopes to return to the Colts next season and wants to finish his career in Indianapolis.“I definitely want to stay in Indianapolis,” Inman said. “I’ve built the morale with Andrew (Luck), Coach (Frank) Reich. I don’t want to go anywhere else. I’m a little older in my career. It feels good to just be home, and it would feel amazing to finish in Indy.”Inman signed with the Colts in October after being without team for the first six weeks of the 2018 season. He appeared in nine games for Indianapolis with four starts and recorded 28 catches for 304 yards and three touchdowns. He is set to be a free agent again next month and knows that he doesn’t have all the say in whether he returns to the Colts or not.“At the end of the day, it’s a business,” Inman said. “It’s a business. Everybody makes moves based on what they think can make their team better.”Inman spent three-plus years with the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers before being traded to the Chicago Bears in 2017. He played eight games for the Bears with seven starts. He caught 23 passes for 334 yards and a touchdown in Chicago. He posted career-highs with 58 catches for 810 yards and four touchdowns for the Chargers in 2016.

    receiver Emmanuel Sanders L.J. Collier Jersey , who left in the first half with an injury. On Tuesday, the 49ers will learn more about how long their offense will have to function without him.Coach Kyle Shanahan said after Monday night’s 27-24 overtime thrilled against the Seahawks that Sanders will have an MRI to determine the severity of the chest injury he suffered.Shanahan called it an injury to Sanders’ ribs. On the last play before he left, Sanders pulled up and grabbed at his side. The injury itself occurred earlier.“Emmanuel was out there battling,” Shanahan said. “Had that happen with his ribs. He tried to go a few more series longer, but he had to go out.”After Sanders went out, the air largely went out of the team’s passing attack.“Other guys came in, some guys stepped it up at times,” Shanahan said. “We just didn’t have the consistency out there.”Sanders had two catches for 24 yards before he exited the game. As noted by Eric Branch of the , the 49ers generated 108 yard and 10 points in their first two series, both with Sanders available. After he left http://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Phil-Haynes-Jersey , the offense generated only two field goals and 194 yards. SEATTLE (AP) — Welcome to being an NFL head coach, Zac Taylor.The newest member of the NFL’s under-40 coaching fraternity will make his debut on Sunday as the head man in Cincinnati in perhaps the most challenging circumstances possible.Taylor and the Bengals will open in Seattle, facing a Seahawks team expected to be a contender in the NFC with the new highest-paid player in the NFL in quarterback Russell Wilson, the highest-paid inside linebacker in the league in All-Pro Bobby Wagner and a brand new shiny toy to unveil after the acquisition of pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney.Article continues below ...With the challenge ahead, Taylor hasn’t taken much time to think about the context of his first game as a head coach.“You don’t allow yourself to think about it, to be quite honest,” Taylor said. “There’s so many other things on my mind this week. … Right now, that’s too hard to think about.”Taylor is taking the reins after 16 seasons where Marvin Lewis was in charge in Cincinnati. While Lewis was mostly successful with the Bengals, he could never break the stigma of going winless in seven playoff appearances during his tenure.Seattle would be a prime example of what Taylor would like to see the Bengals become.Last year was supposed to be a rebuild for the Seahawks as the stars of their championship-contending teams from earlier in the decade cycled out of Seattle and new, younger options took over.But Pete Carroll’s crew proved ahead of the curve and thanks to a recommitment to being a run-first offense Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , the Seahawks won 10 games and earned a wild-card berth in the NFC.There were already expectations for Seattle to be in the playoff hunt in the NFC this season, especially after locking up Wagner and Wilson to long-term extensions. Answering their biggest lingering concern heading into the regular season by acquiring Clowney has amplified the hopes of how good Seattle could end up being.“It’s going to be pretty exciting football,” Wagner said. “The offense has a lot of weapons. Our line is great, (Russell) is great, our running backs are great, receivers are great, D-line is amazing, and our linebackers are pretty good too. I’m really excited to see all of that come together.”Here’s what else to watch as the Bengals and Seahawks open the season.HOLD THE LINECincinnati’s offensive line has been a problem the past few years, and it’s in precarious shape heading into the opener. The Bengals drafted rookie left tackle Jonah Williams in the first round, but he’s out indefinitely with a severe shoulder injury. Left guard Clint Boling retired before the start of camp because of a blood clot. Left tackle Cordy Glenn was in concussion protocol this week Ugo Amadi Jersey , leaving Andre Smith in line to play against Seattle. The line had penalties and miscommunications during preseason and can’t afford that to continue in Seattle.“When you’re playing in noise, you just have to have great communication,” quarterback Andy Dalton said. “We know it’s going to be loud, the first game of the year and Seattle’s already a loud place. We can’t have the mistakes, we can’t be jumping offside, we can’t do the stuff that will set you back.”SET THEM LOOSEClowney had 18½ sacks the past two seasons combined and is an immediate upgrade for Seattle’s defensive line after trading Frank Clark to Kansas City in the offseason. But he’s not the only pass rushing defensive end set to make his Seattle debut. Ziggy Ansah only returned to practice a week ago, but is set to play against the Bengals. If fully healthy, the Ansah and Clowney partnership could end up being among the best pass rushing duos in the league.“It’s going to take us a while to get to our best. We are just so new, brand new guys,” Carroll said. “We’ll see how it goes. Our expectations will be really high as we move forward.”WHAT’S IN STORE?Taylor played his regulars sparingly during the preseason and went with simple schemes Mychal Kendricks Jersey , so the Seahawks aren’t quite sure what they’ll be getting from Cincinnati’s new offensive and defensive systems and coordinators. Taylor will call the offensive plays in addition to his head coaching duties. Running back Giovani Bernard is excited to finally show the Bengals’ new look.“We definitely held back plenty,” Bernard said. “We’re just really excited for this week. It’s an opportunity for us to show everyone what we can do.”RUNAWAY TRAINLast year the Seahawks had the top rushing offense in the NFL, averaging 160 yards per game and only a little bit of contribution from Wilson.Expect more of the same from Chris Carson and the rest of Seattle’s running backs.Carson rushed for 1,151 yards in the regular season last year and the Seahawks are expecting much of the same this year. But there is hope that Carson won’t be alone in carrying the load. Look for Rashaad Penny and C.J. Prosise to get additional carries to balance out the work.PERFECT MARKThe Bengals will be trying to accomplish something that hasn’t been done since Carroll arrived in 2010. Over the previous nine seasons, Seattle is 14-0 in home games in September. One stat on Cincinnati’s side: Dalton is 2-0 in his career against Seattle.

    The Browns rookie cornerback — who got too much of his coach’s attention when he predicted a Super Bowl win before his first game — already has his eyes on Canton.Via Mary Kay Cabot of the https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Austin-Corbett-Jersey , Williams and the other Browns rookies toured the Pro Football Hall of Fame Wednesday, and the second-rounder is hoping to reside there one day.“It was great,’’ Williams said. “I’m just ready to get this season going and try to work towards being a Hall of Famer because that’s one of my long term goals is to be a Hall of Famer.’’Williams, who clearly doesn’t lack for confidence, said he started thinking about earning a gold jacket when he was a freshman at LSU.“I remember my first game, caught an interception and I said, when I get to the NFL level, I want to be a Hall of Famer,’’ he said. “My job isn’t finished until I have a gold jacket. It’s just one of those things me and my stepdad just sit down and talk about.’’He’s not the first rookie to have high hopes (Joe Thomas made a similar declaration as a rookie and he may be right) Nick Chubb Jersey , and at least he’s ready to work for that honor. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — After a week of being beaten up in the media over the trade of popular star receiver Odell Beckham Jr., general manager Dave Gettleman went on the offensive, saying the trade was in the best interests of the New York Giants and was a deal the organization could not refuse.Gettleman didn’t stop there Monday, speaking for the first time since sending Beckham to the Cleveland Browns last week in return for first- and third-round draft picks this year and safety Jabrill Peppers.The executive also defended quarterback Eli Manning, saying the belief the 38-year-old two-time Super Bowl MVP can’t play well anymore is a “crock.” He laughed off the idea that the trade for 29-year-old guard Kevin Zeitler and the free agent signing of 34-year-old safety Antoine Bethea gave the Giants a couple of old players, saying both are good players and good people.When pushed about what is his plan for the Giants after winning three games in 2017 and five last season, Gettleman basically told reporters it was none of their business. He said the team is building, it has a master plan that would become apparent over time Chad Thomas Color Rush Jersey , and he would be judged by how it worked out over the next few years.In discussing Beckham, Gettleman said he only approached the Bills about a deal for the 26-year-old wideout — partly because he heard Buffalo might be getting receiver Antonio Brown from Pittsburgh, and the other part was his friendship with Bills general manager Brandon Beane, who worked for him in Carolina.Gettleman did not shop the three-time Pro Bowler because he felt doing that would not give him the upper hand in trade talks. He said the San Francisco 49ers called and the teams had numerous conversations without reaching a deal.Once Browns general manager John Dorsey called on Tuesday, it took 10 hours to work out the deal. It was finalized over the weekend when Beckham and Peppers passed physicals, Gettleman said.The obvious question is why get rid of the guy who has been the record-setting catalyst of the Giants’ offense since being the No. 12 pick overall in 2014 and the Offensive Rookie of the Year that season.“That’s the question everybody asks,” Gettleman said. “After much discussion we believe this was in the best interests of the New York Football Giants. I want everyone to know this was purely a football business decision. There is no intrigue. No he said, she said. None of that stuff.”Gettleman called Beckham a tremendous talent, but said the Giants got three assets in return https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Antonio-Callaway-Jersey , at the very least.“Because of Odell’s talent and personality, this was a decision we did not enter into lightly,” said Gettleman, who has run the Giants since Jerry Reese was fired in December 2017. “There were a number of factors to take into consideration and I can assure you we thoroughly discussed them all.”The 68-year-old GM said he knows the Giants did not sign Beckham last summer to a $90 million deal to trade him, but things changed when the Browns made a value-packed offer that “knocked it out of the park” and allowed New York to address multiple positions on a team coming off a 5-11 record.Gettleman says the litmus tests for trading a star player is the value of what a team would get if it lost a player who had a franchise tag: two first-round picks. He says the Giants got that in Peppers plus the No. 17 overall pick and a third-rounder. He added that time will tell whether the Giants made a good deal.The recent personnel moves have put the Giants under a microscope, especially because the team has made the playoffs once (2016) since winning the Super Bowl in February 2012.After the past season, New York did not franchise-tag leading tackler Landon Collins — Gettleman said teams called at the trading deadline last year to ask about acquiring Collins, but no one offered enough; traded sacks leader Olivier Vernon to Cleveland for Zeitler; made the Beckham deal; and stuck with Manning, who got a $5 million roster bonus this week.“This narrative that Eli is overpaid and can’t play is a crock Britton Colquitt Jersey , I’m telling you,” Gettleman said, adding he doesn’t mind if people disagree with him.Gettleman said it was not his responsibility to discuss the Giants’ plan for the future.“Trust me, we have a plan,” he said. “Over time, you have to be patient. Everybody wants the answers now. It’s an instant gratification society. … Over time, you will see it. You have to trust it.”

    took the podium to give an update on his team’s injured players on Monday https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Geronimo-Allison-Jersey , he revealed a bit of a surprise when addressing one of the team’s top receiving weapons. Tight end Jimmy Graham suffered a thumb injury last Thursday at Seattle, and reports indicate that he broke said thumb.However, McCarthy said Graham “intends to try to go” when the Packers take the field on Sunday night in Minnesota. That would be an awfully quick turnaround for a tight end with a broken thumb, as the games are just 10 days apart. However, McCarthy said that there are options for how Graham might be able to play, and that Graham will try out some different splints and options for how to wrap the injured digit.Graham caught six passes for 95 yards against the Vikings in the two teams’ first meeting this season. That included pickups of 34 and 27 yards, the latter setting up an opportunity for Mason Crosby to win the game at the end of regulation (which he missed from 52 yards away).One player who will not be suiting up on Sunday, however, is defensive tackle Mike Daniels. McCarthy confirmed that Daniels’ foot injury will indeed keep him out “a couple weeks,” which matches reporting from Sunday. Daniels’ absence will likely elevate Montravius Adams into the starting lineup at the three-technique tackle spot Oren Burks Jersey , but that does leave a void in the depth at the position with just four healthy linemen available. As a result, McCarthy said that the team will likely add a lineman to the roster, noting that he has spoken to general manager Brian Gutekunst about that need and that he expects to have news on that front within “48 hours.” That would seem necessary in order for the Packers to have a full complement of linemen before Wednesday’s practice. Rookie seventh-round draft pick James Looney could be a candidate to get a call-up from the practice squad, and the Packers have a second lineman, Deon Simon, on that unit as well.In addition, the Packers lost a few more players to injury on Thursday, including cornerback Bashaud Breeland and safety Raven Greene. McCarthy said that the team will need to see if and those players are able to practice on Wednesday and how much work they can do to have a better idea if they will be able to play in Minnesota.Stay tuned to APC for more injury updates throughout the week. Former NFL safety Darren Sharper received an 18-year sentence in 2016 after pleading guilty to sexual assault charges in New Orleans, but filed a motion last year asking that the plea deal be overturned because he was not adequately advised of the ramifications of the deal by his attorneys.Sharper agreed to a deal offered by federal prosecutors that would cover charges in four state courts that he drugged and assaulted women. The deal originally called for a nine-year sentence, but that was rejected by a judge and Sharper was sentenced to twice that amount of time behind bars.That change led Sharper to claim his attorneys left him in a position where he had to maintain the guilty plea in order to avoid state prosecutions that could use admissions from his previous plea against him. On Wednesday Marquez Valdes-Scantling Jersey , U.S. District Judge Jane Triche Milazzo rejected his claim.Milazzo wrote that Sharper was represented by “highly experienced and well respected” attorneys and that he said multiple times in court that he understood the terms of his agreement.“The record shows that Sharper knew the terms of his plea agreement and that his attorneys worked closely with him in counseling him throughout his case,” Milazzo wrote, via NOLA.com.Sharper, who played for the Packers, Vikings and Saints, is imprisoned at a federal prison in Otisville, N.Y.

    Frank Reich leaves nothing to chance.He and his staff spend hours meticulously poring through game tapes Jacoby Brissett Jersey , crunching numbers and plotting strategy each week. There’s a meeting every Friday with the team’s two analytics experts in which everything from over-under projections to weather conditions come into play.Together, they try to plot out every conceivable game situation in hopes of simplifying the split-second decisions Reich makes each week.“They factor what’s the expected point total of the game, what’s the output of the other offense,” Reich said, explaining some variables used to create the charts. “It’s like there is a sliding scale and those things are adjusted. Really, they are quite sophisticated, quite complex and run off of literally millions of iterations.”Reich isn’t the only NFL coach to use analytics, but he might rely more heavily on the projections than other coaches — regardless of the results.Three times last weekend the Colts (6-6) found themselves facing fourth downs in field-goal position with Adam Vinatieri, the league’s career scoring leader, ready to kick. Three times, the charts indicated Reich should go for it. And all three times, Indy came up short.The resulting 6-0 loss at Jacksonville ended the Colts’ five-game winning streak, complicated their path to the playoffs and dealt Andrew Luck his first shutout as a pro.Reich had been here before, though.On Sept. 30, he also opted to go for the win in overtime against Houston. A failed fourth-down attempt allowed the Texans (9-3) to kick the winning field goal as time expired — giving them their first victory in a nine-game winning streak they’ll put on the line in Sunday’s rematch.Houston can clinch the AFC South title with a win and a Tennessee loss.Indy (6-6), meanwhile, lost two more games before rebounding with a five-game winning streak that put it back in the playoff mix and had some outsiders openly questioning whether the Colts would have been better off playing it by the book and going for the tie in the first Houston game.But inside the locker room, there is no debate.“It told us he believes in his team Reggie Wayne Color Rush Jersey , he was not going to allow us to lay down, and we would fight till the end,” rookie linebacker Darius Leonard said. “Yeah, we lost the game. But when he said we’re going for it, everybody on that bench was behind him.”Players embrace Reich’s aggressive philosophy in large part because they understand the rationale for his decisions, and they know the former NFL quarterback does his homework.He asks the analytics specialists not just to contemplate the Colts’ potential game-day situations, but also to break down tape of every other NFL game and plot how the Colts would handle those decisions. Then Reich and Luck discuss the charts to assure everyone works from the same playbook.As a self-described nerd who runs his own book club, Luck understands what Reich’s philosophy is all about.“You play this game to win and he’s going to coach the game to win,” Luck said. “I think as players we obviously didn’t execute that one (against Houston), but I think that gave us a glimpse into how he coaches and his approach. We appreciate that. We want to go out there and win the game, and he gives us a chance to do that.”Not everyone adheres to the charts quite like Reich.“I think you have to have a great feel for what’s going on in the game. How is that game going? How did the opponent decide to play you? Are they playing you in this type of defense or that type of defense, or are they trying to attack your defense with these certain plays?” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said. “I think charts are great and they help you prepare, but at the end of the day, how is that particular game being played on game day is what’s most important.”Reich understands, even acknowledges, that sometimes coaches need to play a hunch or rely on their gut instinct. He’s done it, too.Even so, Reich believes there is power in numbers.“This is preparation https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Rigoberto-Sanchez-Jersey , thought and detail that go into it. It’s not robotic,” Reich said, citing his decision to punt on fourth-and-1 Sunday when the chart said to go for it. “What the analytics tell us is that historical coaching philosophy has been a little bit conservative and that there are reasons to consider being more aggressive. Then you have to have the maturity and wisdom to interpret the chart the way that you think is best for your team. That’s the art of it.”100<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta INDIANAPOLIS — Longtime assistant coach Howard Mudd has decided to walk away from football just two days before the Indianapolis Colts open the season at the Los Angeles Chargers.Coach Frank Reich made the announcement Friday.The 77-year-old Mudd came out of retirement six months ago and accepted the title of senior offensive assistant, working primarily with new offensive line coach Chris Strausser. Mudd worked for seven NFL franchises from 1974 through 2012 before retiring.But Reich said over the past week, Mudd started indicating he might be ready to leave the game again. He previously worked for the Colts from 1998 through 2009, where he helped teach Reich the nuances of run blocking and pass protection.“He was all in, it was tremendous in every way,” Reich said. “He had a lot of energy, passion, a lot of knowledge and a lot of experience in those meetings. It was a lot of fun for our guys, especially our younger guys to get a chance to rub shoulders with Howard.”Mudd wasn’t just a successful coach.He spent seven years in the NFL as a player with the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears. He was selected to three Pro Bowls, twice to the All-Pro team and won one Super Bowl ring — with Indy following the 2006 season. Mudd also was a member of the NFL’s 1960s all-decade team.But those who played for the motorcycle enthusiast and watched him drive around the field in a cart faster than normal golf carts enjoyed learning from him.“They really harp on the fundamentals and do a great job teaching,” All-Pro left guard Quenton Nelson said in May when asked about the two new line coaches. “They are very detail-oriented, and what they’re teaching — I feel like I have already seen results in myself and my teammates too. So it has been awesome being coached by them and they’re doing a great job.”Mudd’s departure is the second surprise move in less than two weeks. Andrew Luck retired abruptly Aug. 24 following a preseason loss to the Bears.“He was really physically, I thought in great shape and his mind is still as sharp as ever. Man, that guy’s mind is unbelievable,” Reich said. “I was able to kind of talk him out of retirement to come and help us make a transition. His contribution over the last six months has been tremendous.”NOTES: Reich also said defensive end Jabaal Sheard (knee) and backup running back Jonathan Williams (ribs) would not play Sunday. … Backup defensive end Kemoko Turay is listed as questionable with a neck injury. … The Colts reached injury settlements with receiver Penny Hart and cornerback Shakial Taylor. The move allows them to sign with other teams.

Their second trip didn't take nearly as long, and had a much happier ending.3 Ways Seahawks Can Reach Super Bowl LIV - SeahawkMaven.ioIn their latest Super Bowl run, the Patriots helped devise a blueprint the Seahawks can follow back to the big game.Kevin Mawae gets his due, will Steve Hutchinson be next?Former Seattle Seahawks center Kevin Mawae finally earned his induction into Canton, will fellow Seahawks lineman Steve Hutchinson be next? Bobby Wagner leaped over the line of scrimmage, swatted Dan Bailey‘s field goal attempt and sparked the Seattle Seahawks to two late touchdowns.Whether or not what Wagner did was entirely legal Byron Maxwell Color Rush Jersey , he frankly didn’t care.“I’m not stressing about that. I made the play. They called what they called,” Wagner said. “There’s times in games where things happen all the time. I’m not stressing on it. It was a big block and we’ll definitely take it. It was amazing.”Wagner’s block midway through the fourth quarter was the catalyst in a 21-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night that pushed Seattle to the brink of a playoff berth.Chris Carson followed the blocked kick with a 2-yard TD run with 2:53 left, and Justin Coleman capped off the Seahawks’ fourth straight victory with a 29-yard fumble return for a touchdown 18 seconds later.What was an ugly and mostly forgettable first three quarters turned into a Seattle party in the fourth as the Seahawks (8-5) moved to the brink of wrapping up a wild-card spot in the NFC. One win in Seattle’s final three games — including matchups with lowly San Francisco and Arizona — should be enough to put the Seahawks into the postseason.“It’s really about the defense. I loved the way they played, they played so hard and so spirited,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “It was almost poetic after last week’s game that Bobby would get to block the field goal and he pulled it off and did it. That was an incredible play.”Minnesota (6-6-1) twice had scoring chances in the fourth quarter when it was still a one-score game but was turned away each time. Minnesota’s chances of winning the NFC North took a major hit with its second straight loss, but the Vikings still hold the No. 6 spot in the NFC.“Part of it is being better on third downs. We haven’t really done a good job there. Part of it is being better in the red zone,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. “We had the ball on the 2-yard line and didn’t score.”But much of the conversation centered on Wagner’s block of Bailey’s 47-yard attempt with 5:38 left and whether it was entirely legal. Wagner’s jump through a gap in Minnesota’s offensive line was fine, but it appeared he used his teammates to gain leverage, which allowed him to come through and block the kick. A flag was initially thrown but was picked up by the officials.Wagner said he attempted it four times in practice without a problem but acknowledged it could be tough to pull off the play during the fourth quarter of a tight game.“When I did it in practice I was pretty fresh,” Wagner said.Zimmer said he asked for an explanation of what happened but wasn’t given one. He was told he couldn’t challenge.“Quite honestly, I didn’t see what happened. I was told what happened Sebastian Janikowski Color Rush Jersey ,” Zimmer said.Seattle took possession and Russell Wilson immediately scrambled 40 yards deep into Minnesota territory. Five plays later, Carson scored and Seattle finally had a cushion. Two plays after that, Jacob Martin sacked Minnesota’s Kirk Cousins and the ball popped to Coleman, who weaved his way for the clinching touchdown.Cousins threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Dalvin Cook with 1:10 remaining, but Seattle recovered the onside kick.“I feel like all of our losses we, as an offense, we are so slow,” Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen said. “Our defense is keeping us in games. And we’re not pulling our side of the bargain.”Wilson had one of the worst passing games of his career, completing 10 of 20 attempts for career-low 72 yards and a baffling interception late in the first half, one of the many mistakes by Seattle that allowed Minnesota to hang around. But Seattle’s ground game was outstanding against one of the better run defenses in the NFL. The Seahawks finished with 214 yards rushing, led by 90 yards from Carson.Sebastian Janikowski hit field goals of 37 and 35 yards to account for all of Seattle’s scoring until the closing minutes.“If you run it 40-something times Dontae Johnson Color Rush Jersey , you ought to win. That was pretty good,” Carroll said.FOURTH QUARTER WOESMinnesota hung around despite failing to run a play in Seattle territory until there was 4:16 left in the third quarter. Cousins was 20 of 33 for 208 yards, most of that coming late. But he failed to get the Vikings into the end zone from inside the Seattle 5 while trailing 6-0 early in the fourth quarter.The Vikings had first-and-goal at the Seattle 4 but turned the ball over on downs with 9:06 remaining. Two short runs and an incompletion brought up fourth-and-goal at the 1, and Cousins’ pass for Kyle Rudolph was knocked away by Bradley McDougald. Bailey’s field goal was blocked on Minnesota’s next drive.REACHING 100Minnesota fell to 0-6 when allowing its opponents to run for at least 100 yards. The Vikings came in to the week giving up 99 yards per game on the ground, good for seventh-best in the NFL. Seattle had 136 yards rushing in the first half.OTHER CENTURY MARKThielen tied Cris Carter as the fastest Minnesota player to reach 100 receptions in a season, both accomplishing the feat in 13 games. Carter did it in 1994 when he finished the year with 122 catches. Thielen is the first Minnesota receiver to get to 100 catches since Randy Moss in 2003. But Thielen didn’t get his first catch until midway through the third quarter. He finished with five catches for 70 yards.UP NEXTMinnesota: The Vikings return home to host Miami on Sunday.Seattle: The Seahawks play their final road game Sunday at San Francisco.

He will compete with Stanton for backup position." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteDawgs EDTShareTweetShareShareBrowns Sign QB Garrett Gilbert of the AAFSoobum Im-USA TODAY SportsWith the demise of the AAF, suddenly there were hundreds of available players to be signed to free agent contracts. These free agents, however, have actual playing time stats with success or failure ratios. The AAF’s leading QB, Garrett Gilbert (6’-4”, 230 pounds), has signed with the Browns according to Adam Schefter of ESPN and then announced on FOX8 news in Cleveland. Gilbert, age 27, played for the Orlando Apollos which was the best team in the AAF at the time of its closure. He played under the tutelage of QB guru Steve Spurrier and was the league’s leading passer. His stats include 2,152 passing yards with 13 TDs and only three INTs. Orlando also led the league in total offense. The signing is more geared to provide Baker Mayfield’s backup Drew Stanton a capable competitor for the backup position, and if nothing else allows the club to have three capable QBs in training camp. Usually most teams also bring in a younger player as the fourth man as camp fodder. Oddly enough, Gilbert and Mayfield went to the same high school in Austin, Texas at Lake Travis HS. Gilbert had competed in ESPN’s Elite 11 competition for high school quarterbacks and a highly-recruited prospect. He also played in the Under Armour All-America Game and was a five-star recruit by Rivals.com. He was named USA Today’s Offensive Player of the Year. After accepting a scholarship at Texas, he came in for an injured Colt McCoy and finished the BCS National Championship Game in 2009, a 37-21 Alabama victory. Two years later, he transferred to SMU after sharing the starting QB spot and then a successful shoulder surgery after getting hurt in the opening game against Rice in 2011. At Texas, he had 14 starts with 3 Briean Boddy-Calhoun Jersey ,301 yards, 13 TDs and 23 INTs. He also rushed for 400 yards and six TDs. While with SMU, he started all 23 games in two seasons. He passed for 6,460 yards, 36 TDs, 22 INTs with a 66.5% completion ratio his final year in 2013.Gilbert was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the sixth-round of the 2014 NFL draft. He was involved in the final cuts and then signed to the Rams practice squad (PS), but was released again two months later. The New England Patriots signed him to their PS in December and was a part of the Patriots’ Super Bowl XLIX 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. He was considered the third QB behind Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo. The following June, New England waived him. The Detroit Lions claimed him off waivers and participated in training camp, but was cut when the club had to get down to 75 players. Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY SportsThe Oakland Raiders claimed him and was signed to their PS where he spent two years before being cut after the 2016 season. He signed with the Carolina Panthers who placed him on their PS. In October, he was elevated to the 53-man roster as the third QB. In 2018, starting QB Cam Newton had been sidelined with an injury and his backup Taylor Heinicke became injured in the last game of the 2018 season. Gilbert came in and finally made an NFL playing field. He went 2-3 for 40 yards, sacked once and ended the game with a 109.7 rating. Four days later, he was again cut. In November of 2018, he was the seventh overall pick of the Apollos in their player draft. In Week Two, a 37-29 victory over the San Antonio Commanders, Gilbert tossed 393 yards with two TDs and was named AAF Offensive Player of the Week.

The Hall of Fame Game has arrived, bringing with it the first in a long string of largely unwatchable games for the casual NFL fan.And yet, here we are. It has been almost six months to the day that the NFL played its last game, and with a new preseason comes a renewed sense of hope for the 31 franchises that are not the defending world champions and their fan bases. For two of them, the journey to glory or sadness kicks off in Canton this evening.Tonight’s game won’t be a good one by most accounts. On one side, we will see either Matt Schaub or Kurt Benkert starting under center, while rookie Drew Lock is likely to take the first snaps on the other side. But football is football, even if the names are unfamiliar and the performances unimpressive. So if you’re tuning in for tonight’s game, join us here at APC as we celebrate the return of football.

After being held out of Green Bay’s first preseason game against Houston, the seven-time Pro Bowl star was slated to start for the first time under rookie head coach Matt LaFleur.Until he didn’t.“No long-term concerns. He was a little tight yesterday,” LaFleur said. “This is all precautionary. You never want to put him at risk, put him out there, if he’s not 100%. It was a game-day decision.”Jackson Green Bay Packers T-Shirts , on the other hand, needed the work. Coming off a rookie season in which he didn’t start until mid-November, Jackson is seeking to master a new playbook devised by first-year coordinator Greg Roman.Jackson started and played three series last week in a 29-0 rout of Jacksonville. This time, the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner stuck around for two possessions, both of which ended with field goals. He completed 6 of 10 passes for 58 yards and ran twice for 14 yards.His best play displayed both his speed and elusiveness, but ultimately went for naught. On third-and-10 from the Green Bay 18, Jackson thrust forward from the pocket, sidestepped Tramon Williams and jumped over Jaire Alexander at the 5. He then high-stepped through the end zone before handing the ball to a fan.Instead of being horrified at seeing his standout quarterback frolicking in the middle of the field, coach John Harbaugh loved it.“It’s not like he’s trying to run, but sometimes, what are you going to do?” Harbaugh said. “You can’t hold him back forever.”Jackson has no intention of standing in the pocket when there’s a wide-open field in front of him.“The four-man rush gave me a lane, our receivers were covered and I just did what I do best https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/hats ,” he said.The play was called back because of an illegal block by Willie Snead, and Baltimore (2-0) settled for the second of Justin Tucker’s four field goals.Rodgers has played 165 regular-season games since breaking into the league in 2005, so there was really no pressing need to get him into a game three weeks before the Sept. 5 opener against Chicago.Instead, DeShone Kizer, Tim Boyle and Manny Wilkins struggled against a defense that last year was ranked No. 1 in the NFL.Maybe Rodgers will get to play next week. If not, the Packers will make do without him this month.“I think we’d like to see him, but you’re talking about a veteran quarterback that’s played a lot of football,” LaFleur said. “I don’t think it’s a necessity, but it’s certainly something we’d like to see.”Rodgers exchanged pleasantries after the game with Jackson, but declined to talk with the media.Green Bay (1-1) got its lone touchdown in the third quarter on a 7-yard pass from Boyle to rookie Darrius Shepherd.G.O.A.T.Jackson couldn’t resist talking to Rodgers after the final whistle.“I was like, ‘What’s up, G.O.A.T?” Jackson said Green Bay Packers Hoodie , using an acronym for Greatest Of All Time. “There are a lot of G.O.A.T.s out here, but it is Aaron Rodgers, so I have to show my respect. It was pretty cool seeing him.”THE STREAKThe Ravens have won 15 straight preseason games, 34 of the last 43 and 19 of the last 22 at home.“We like winning,” Harbaugh said.INJURIESHarbaugh revealed that CB Tavon Young will likely miss the season with a neck injury that happened during practice. … Ravens LB Chris Board sustained a concussion in the second quarter.HIGH KICKRavens tight end Nick Boyle had every intention of leaping over Adrian Amos after catching a first-quarter pass. Problem is, Amos stayed upright. So Boyle ended up planting a foot in Amos’ chest and was thrown backward.UP NEXTPackers: A matchup against the Oakland Raiders next Thursday comes with a twist.

This is in addition to ticket, jersey and parking sales. So, all things considered, money seems not to be a problem for NFL teams.What seems to be the problem nowadays is how that money is allocated throughout the team, especially regarding the QB position. As the most important position in sports, teams tend to latch onto a good QB, since they only seem to come every once in a blue moon.OK, this is when the math starts to get intense. First of all, I want you guys to get a grasp of how rapidly the money in the NFL is increasing. The blue line is the year-to-year salary cap (per team), going from 2011 to 2019. The red line, on the other hand, represents the standard inflation (3.9%) from 2011 salary cap of $120 million. So, clearly, there seems to be a growing amount of capital in the NFL, most of which goes either to the players (47%) or into the owners pockets (53%).Now, of this new money that is being generated, a lot of it is going to QBs. No surprise there. The fascinating thing is how much is truly going into the position. For example, Rodgers will make $66.9 million dollars in 2018 (due to the signing bonus in his new deal), while in 2000, the salary cap per team was only $62.172 million. That means in 2000, Rodgers would require 107.6% of a team’s salary cap. Now, to have a truly strong argument, you’d have to take the opposition’s strongest point and prove it wrong. In this case, that’s the idea that NFL QB salaries actually comprise the same amount of the cap, percentage wise, and as the salary cap grows, so do the QB’s salaries. This is, in fact, correct, and I ran my own statistical calculations that prove so Parris Campbell Jersey , as you can see below. In 1994, QBs, on average, commanded 6.9% of the cap. Now, looking at the graph, you can tell that from 2013-2019, that percentage has stayed around the 7-9% range, with 2019 being the highest point at 10.26%. What most league-wide analysts forget to tell you is that the rookie salaries are very heavily skewing the data. In reality, if you are paying a QB after their rookie deal, it’s going to cost you. A lot.Let’s take a look at 2013. As you can see below, the teams that spend most of their money on the QB position have elite, veteran players, while those who don’t spend as much tend to have either “bridge” QBs or rookies. Now, the league average QB salary in 2013 was $9.8 million. If you take out the rookie contracts, what is that average? $14.5 million. Let’s do the same thing for 2019. The league average is now $19.3 million allotted to the QB position on average. One thing we notice, however, is that “bridge” QBs or serviceable QBs (those around the 18-28 range), have become much more expensive. However, we will talk about that later. One important factor that people will bring up is that, while the average QB salary had gone up $10 million dollars in just 6 years, the percentage of cap money spent on QBs in 2019 (10.26%) is not that much more than that spent on 2013 (7.96%). But again, the rookies skew the data. Take out the rookies again, and what are you left with? An average of $25.93. For those keeping count at home, that’s an increase in salary of 178.83% from 2013 to 2019 while the cap only increased 153.01%.Finally, as the QB market has developed, a new tier of QBs has arisen. There used to be the high paid elite QBs, the “bridge” QBs and the rookie QBs. However, as time progressed and salaries have gone up, a new, highly paid, rank which I call the “treading water” or “unsure” group has emerged. This are the QBs that franchises don’t really know if they have something or not ( the Mariotas, Garoppolos, Winstons, Bortles of the world). Furthermore, the stock in the “bridge” QB market has really skyrocketed, with Case Keenum, Alex Smith and the likes reeling in upwards of $20 million a year.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="1nN3uZ">What does that mean for the Colts?The whole point of this article was for me to answer the question: How much are we going to have to pay Luck in 2022 when his contract is up? This is where the lines get blurry, the math gets ugly and the predictions are just rough estimations.First of all, it took the top 5 QB salaries from 2011-2019 to create a model that would display the QB yearly salary trends. This is where we meet our first fork in the road, because there are two schools of thought: The first states that the salary of QBs increases linearly http://www.coltsfanshop.com/Ben-Banogu-Jersey , while the second states that the salary grows exponentially. I personally believe that QB salaries can be represented by a logistic graph; however, for the sake of this article, let’s say that it grows exponentially. My reason to believe that the top 5 salaries for NFL QBs are growing exponentially is the fact that between 2011-2016, the average salary of this “elite” tier of QBs was increasing linearly with an average annual increase of $1.35 million. From 2017-2019, what has that growth rate been? An annual increase of $3.93 million.So, taking the average of every top 5 earning NFL QB from 2011-2019, I devised their average income. And with these points I devised the equation 15.21144729*1.08198937^x where x represents how many years from 2010 (x=1 is 2011, x=2 is 2012, etc). The Colts signed Luck in 2016, which, in retrospect, was a genius move as it was right before the exponential curve starts to point upward.(This also show my model is pretty accurate. According to the model, Luck’s per year salary should be $24.407. In reality it was $24.594)Problem is that Luck is due to re-sign in the 2022 off-season, which would net him a yearly salary of $39.16 million. One can clearly see the risk involved in signing a 33 year old with an injury history to a deal this massive. I still think the Colts do it with very little hesitation, but it makes one think about who the team might be unable to resign because of it. Also, this is almost certainly the primary reason Ballard is saving up. In conclusion, while my graph is accurate for the 2011-2019 time period, who knows were things might go after this season? The big questions are, first, how will the CBA be renewed and will it make more money accessible for players? Next, it is rare to see TV deals regress as time goes on, but how much money will truly be pumped into the NFL when the new TV deal is signed?Another thing to take into account is that only 4 teams have ever won a SB when their QB accounts for more than 11% of the cap. So for Luck and his yearly salary of $39.16 million to be 11%, the cap would have to be $356 million (!). Last year it was $188.2 million.The main concern that Colts fans should have with, theoretically, giving Luck $39.16 million a year is that they may not have enough money to pay him. These are players that the Colts have to sign in the next few years:Ryan KellyAnthony CastonzoBraden SmithMarlon MackQuenton NelsonTY HiltonDarius LeonardMalik HookerQuincy WilsonAbout half of these players will demand top of the line money, so who knows how much will be left when Luck’s turn is up?The most important thing to take away from this article is that the QB market is expensive, unpredictable, and punishing. It’s important that the Colts keep doing what they’re doing, or they could be forced to make some untimely decisions.So, after researching all of this, my recommendation to Colts fans is:Hope Ballard keeps playing FA safe and saving up cashThe cap space consistently increasesSign Luck early, maybe in 2021, when, according to my model, he will only ask for $36.19 million a yearFinally, there were extra statistics, graphs and charts I was unable to integrate into this piece. So, in an attempt to keep those from going to waste, I’ll embed a tweet of mine with the link to a spreadsheet where I did most of the math.

    and NFLPA study found in helmets didn’t help Tom Brady.The six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback will have to discard his longtime brand as one of 11 helmets banned by the league and players’ union for 2019.Brady was one of 32 players wearing helmets last season under a grace period that is now eliminated.“If they were Michael Dickson Color Rush Jersey , at the end of the 2017 season, using prohibited helmeted, they could be grandfathered for 2018,” said Dr. Kristy Arbogast, the union’s appointed consultant to the testing.“At end of 2018, we had those relatively few players, 32, who were wearing a red category model. It is now prohibited. Conversations are being held with those players. We tried to identify for every helmet in the red category a similar helmet, often from the same manufacturer, that had similar look and feel and is not prohibited.”In its annual study, designed by NFL- and NFLPA-appointed biomechanical engineers, a subset of concussion-causing impacts sustained by NFL players during games is simulated to determine which helmets best reduced head impact severity. The study measures rotational velocity and acceleration to evaluate helmets.A poster both sides released Friday will be displayed at every team facility. It shows six of 11 helmets tested this year moved into the top-10 rated models.VICIS Zero1 graded best for the third straight year. Of the 34 overall helmets on the poster, it was followed by the Schutt F7 LTD and the Riddell SpeedFlex Precision Diamond.Also in the “green area” of strongly approved helmets was the brand new Xenith Shadow. In all, those four manufacturers had all 27 models at the top of the poster.The yellow section, in which helmets perform worse than the green group, had seven models.“The thing that’s really notable,” Arbogast said Alex McGough Color Rush Jersey , “is how receptive the players were to that info; 50% moved up the poster. They are eager to have the information that helps them make informed decisions about their equipment choice.”Arbogast commended manufacturers for “innovating and introducing new helmets; the fact all new ones performed well is very encouraging.”The poster includes gray areas within the green and yellow sectors. That indicates that less than 1% of NFL players are wearing that model, providing players with additional information. But Arbogast stresses that “doesn’t mean they aren’t safe or viable options.”The 11 models in the red area, including Brady’s, are banned.VICIS doubled the number of NFL players using Zero1 from 2017 to ’18, with 135 players wearing it last season. Among them are league MVP Patrick Mahomes, Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman, Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin, Dee Ford and Golden Tate.“My experience wearing the Zero1 has been exceptional,” Wilson said. “The custom fit and wide field of vision have allowed me to perform at my best.”VICIS has tweaked the helmet, reducing weight and cost while keeping the fundamental design.“The helmet’s deformable shell and unique … layer have been shown to reduce impact forces more effectively than other helmets,” said Dave Marver, the company’s CEO.“The NFL/NFLPA test ranks helmets using a sophisticated formula that considers several different impact velocities and locations, and the measurement of both linear and rotational forces. The Zero1 is top-ranked when taking all of those measurements into account, meaning it provides the best protection across the full range of impacts and situations players encounter in NFL play.”It has since the 2017 survey.One potential concern in the study is that manufacturers could design helmets to rate highly, but they might not necessarily be the best performers on the field.Dr. Grant Goulet, vice president of product innovation at Xenith — which had five models in the green category — noted that “these independent tests Byron Maxwell Color Rush Jersey , whether by the NFL and NFLPAor by Virginia Tech … are incredibly important and providing value in this space.”“We are very supportive and encouraged by the work the NFL and NFLPA are putting into this test, it’s scientifically rigorous,” Goulet added. “However, it could also be something of a cautionary tale that more helmets moved into that green group. I think there could be a propensity to be engineering helmets for these tests and metrics and that’s what is bumping them up into this green group.“What is important to emphasize is more of a holistic approach to designing the best gear for the athlete on the field.”That, naturally, is what the entire process is about.“The importance is this is a statistical analysis of on-field performances,” said Dr. Jeffrey Crandall, the league’s consultant to the independent testing. “What we see is statistically is double-digit concussion risk deduction as we go from yellow to green and from red to yellow. That has a significant impact on the risk of concussion.” Sunday the Seattle Seahawks will wrap up their 2018 regular season with their Week 17 home game against the Arizona Cardinals. While the game will have no impact on either team’s ability to make the playoffs, with the Cardinals having been eliminated weeks ago and the Seahawks owning one of the two NFC Wild Card berths, it will serve as a tune up for the Hawks as they prepare for the postseason. For the Cardinals, a loss would decrease the likelihood of having the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, a position they currently hold due to having the worst record in the entire NFL. Not really all that noteworthy, but it is interesting to consider that the only teams the Cards have defeated in the course of amassing their 3-11 record are the San Francisco 49ers (twice) and the Green Bay Packers. In any case, the Seahawks injury report for the game looks very good compared to how it looked heading into the Week 16 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Hawks should be at close to full strength. Germain Ifedi appears set to start at right tackle after having missed the game against Kansas City, and D.J. Fluker is once again listed as questionable. Fluker played the majority of the game against the Chiefs after J.R. Sweezy went down with a foot injury that is likely to keep him out again this week, so guard will certainly be a position worth watching. It would not be a surprise for the team to keep eight offensive linemen active for the game Sebastian Janikowski Color Rush Jersey , just as they did last week, which is one more than usual. On the defensive side Dion Jordan, Bradley McDougald and Tedric Thompson are all listed as questionable, and even if they play, are likely to see their time limited in order to ensure their health for the postseason. For Arizona, their injury report is pretty empty, with only three players on it. Tight end Ricky Seals-Jones is out with a shoulder injury, and defensive ends Markus Golden and Benson Mayowa are both listed as questionable. That said, the reason their injury report is so empty is largely because huge portions of the team is already on injured reserve. The Cardinals have 17 players on IR (Seattle has nine players on IR, including only two starters. Unless you also want to count Mychal Kendricks as a starter, in which case they have three starters on IR). Of those 17 players on IR, some of them areFormer first round pick Robert Nkemdiche (who as a first round pick has 4.5 sacks and 44 tackles in his first three seasons),Starting middle linebacker Josh Bynes, who was second on the team in tackles until being injured in Week 12, Six different offensive linemen who have started a game for the Cardinals this season (Jeremy Vujnovich, Korey Cunningham, Justin Pugh Dontae Johnson Color Rush Jersey , Mike Iupati, John Wetzel and D.J. Humphries) and a seventh (A.Q. Shipley) who was slated to be the starting center before being injured in training camp, Christian Kirk, who was leading the team in receiving yards and was second in receptions and receiving touchdowns before breaking his foot in Week 13 andstarting kicker Phil Dawson, who will turn 44 next month. So, hopefully the Seahawks won’t have too much trouble at home with the Cardinals, even if they rest their starters because a good number of Arizona starters are already missing. In any case, Frank Clark has one more regular season game this season to try and improve his market value. In addition, while it would take a Herculean effort to tie or break the franchise single season record for sacks, if there was ever an opponent against which Clark might be able to set the single game record for sacks (4.0 is the current record, which five different Seahawks have accomplished, most recently Chris Clemons against Green Bay in 2012) and tie or break Michael Sinclair’s single season record of 16.5 set in 1998, it would seem to be this Cardinals team. Reduced to starting their third string left tackle and their fourth string right tackle in Week 17, Clark would have to have an outstanding day to set either record, but with an opportunity to face off against two tackles who were signed by the Cardinals within the last month, it’s impossible to rule out the possibility.

    to do some work on the defensive side of the ball https://www.brownsfanshop.com/JC-Tretter-Jersey , most notably at the defensive tackle position.Second-year defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi was solid at one defensive tackle position, but he also wore down as the season went along after playing 930 snaps — the most in the league at his position.The rest of the position group was filled with a group of interchangeable players, including Trevon Coley, Carl Davis and Daniel Ekuale, that can safely fall into the dreaded category of “just a guy.”General manager John Dorsey will likely look to fix the issue via the draft, but there is one name to keep an eye on in free agency that would certainly get fans excited - Gerald McCoy of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. There is much to like about McCoy as he has been selected to six Pro Bowls, has played 13 or more games eight times in his nine seasons, and has had at least six sacks every season since 2013. So why would Tampa Bay want to move on from McCoy?It could come down to a system change as new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles brings his version of a 3-4 defense to town. Under Bowles, the defensive tackles are tasked with occupying the offensive lineman and letting someone else on defense make the play. That Ozzie Newsome Jersey , along with his price tag, could make McCoy expendable, according to ESPN’s Jenna Laine:So could the Browns make a run at McCoy if he does, in fact, hit the open market?Cleveland has a little more than $75 million in estimated cap space, according to spotrac.com, so the money is there. And spending some of that cap space to improve the roster while quarterback Baker Mayfield is still on his rookie contract is not a bad idea. Signing McCoy to line up next to Ogunjobi would also not preclude Dorsey from drafting another defensive tackle to build up the team’s depth and keep the starters from breaking down later in the season.McCoy is going to turn 31 in a few weeks, and that is a bit older than you normally want to see from a player that the Browns would want to sign in free agency. But he doesn’t appear to have any injury issues, and the Browns would only be looking at him for a couple of years Briean Boddy-Calhoun Jersey , so his age may not be a problem.Of course, Tampa Bay has to release McCoy first and, if that happens, the Browns will not be the only team interested in signing him. But if that day arrives, it would not be a surprise to see Dorsey toss his hat into the ring for McCoy in an attempt to give the defensive line some much-needed help. Trent Richardson couldn’t cut it in the NFL, but he’s making some waves in the AAF.Richardson’s Birmingham Iron played in their second Alliance of American Football game today, and they beat Salt Lake 12-9 on the strength of Richardson’s game-winning touchdown run with 4:40 left in the fourth quarter.Birmingham is now 2-0; Richardson scored two touchdowns to lead his team to victory in the opener.This AAF game was exceedingly dull in the first half, but the second half got more interesting, as Richardson and his teammates came back from a 9-0 halftime deficit to win. Salt Lake missed a field goal late in the fourth quarter that could have sent the game into overtime Joe Schobert Color Rush Jersey , which would have been interesting to see as the AAF has some unique overtime rules.Ultimately, the players in the AAF are there mostly because they’re hoping they can get themselves a chance in the NFL. For most, that’s a second chance, as most players in the NFL have spent time in an NFL training camp but have been released. Richardson is hoping for a fifth chance, having spent time with the Browns, Colts, Raiders and Ravens. He hasn’t done enough to earn that chance yet, but if he keeps it up he might find himself in a training camp in six months.

    FOXBOROUGH Lance Kendricks Color Rush Jersey , Mass. (AP) — Green Bay had the ball in field goal range, on the cusp of breaking a fourth-quarter tie, when Patriots lineman Lawrence Guy knocked the ball out of Aaron Jones‘ grasp .Instead of taking their first lead of the game, the Packers watched the Patriots march to back-to-back scores and put away a 31-17 victory on Sunday night.“It was obviously a big play in the game,” Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said. “That was a turning point.”One week after fumbling away a late chance to defeat the then-unbeaten Los Angeles Rams, the Packers blew another fourth-quarter opportunity against the defending AFC champions, and Tom Brady — with some passing help from receiver Julian Edelman — led the Patriots to their sixth straight win.“Jonesy’s had a really nice year for us, so that one play obviously doesn’t lose the game,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. “But it’s plays like that — by all of us, myself included — that have just hindered us from finishing games out.”In just the second matchup ever between Brady, a three-time NFL MVP, and Rodgers, who has won the award twice, Green Bay (3-4-1) played the Patriots even for 45 minutes before Jones’ fumble stalled their best chance to take the lead.“It’s happening in the worst times,” said Rodgers, who completed 24 of 43 passes for 259 yards and two touchdowns. “When we have to play our best in those crunch times, we haven’t been playing our best.”Brady completed four passes in a row before tossing it back to Edelman, who threw across the field to James White. The Patriots running back scampered for most of the 37 yards to the 2; he ran it in from the 1 for his second score of the game.The Packers failed to get a first down, then Brady hit Josh Gordon inside the 40; he shook off cornerback Tramon Williams before dashing into the end zone.Last week https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Davon-House-Jersey , the Rams kicked a field goal to take a 29-27 lead with 2:05 to play. But Packers kickoff returner Ty Montgomery brought the ball out of the end zone and fumbled, costing Rodgers a chance for a game-winning drive.Against New England, the Packers also settled for a field goal in the first quarter after a delay of game penalty at the 9.“We’re hurting ourselves with negative yardage plays and missed throws and turnovers at the wrong time,” Rodgers said. The last time the Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs met in the postseason, it was a memorable contest. Of course, those are memories that most Chiefs fans would prefer to forget.In a matchup of 11-5 teams at Lucas Oil Stadium, the Chiefs broke out to a huge early lead. With Knile Davis — later a Green Bay Packer for a brief period — scoring a touchdown on either side of the halftime break, the Chiefs led 38-10 early in the third quarter. The colts stormed back, however, with touchdowns on five of their next six series, including four drives of 80 yards or more. Bizarrely, the Chiefs won the turnover battle 4-1 in that game, but their offense sputtered down the stretch and their defense fell apart.Today, we get the first postseason rematch of that game. The Colts still have a few of their key offensive players, most notably quarterback Andrew Luck and wideout T.Y. Hilton, but the Chiefs’ personnel is entirely different. It should be a fun way to kick off the divisional round, and expect some offensive fireworks at Arrowhead this afternoon.Today’s late game pits a dominant Rams team against the resurgent Dallas Cowboys, who have lost just once in their last nine games. Dallas’ offense drastically improved after the team acquired Amari Cooper, and he ended up leading the team in receiving yards and touchdowns despite playing just nine regular-season games. A revamped Cowboys defense will look to give the Rams’ high-flying offense fits Bryan Bulaga Jersey , as LA has taken a bit of a step back since their bye in week 12.Tune in for today’s games and join us as we discuss throughout the afternoon and evening.#6 Indianapolis Colts at #1 Kansas City ChiefsVenue: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, MOKickoff time: 3:35 PM Central Time (4:35 PM Eastern)TV Networks: NBCCommentators: Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, Michelle TafoyaRadio Broadcast: Westwood One Sports, Sirius 88/82/83, XM 88/225/226Odds: Chiefs favored by 5 points; over/under total 57Last Meeting: Week 8 2016: Chiefs 30, @Colts 14Playoff History: Colts lead all-time 4-0; last game WC 2013: @Colts 45, Chiefs 44#4 Dallas Cowboys at #2 Los Angeles RamsVenue: Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles, CAKickoff time: 5:15 PM Pacific Time (8:15 PM Eastern)TV Networks: FOXCommentators: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Erin Andrews, Chris MyersRadio Broadcast: Westwood One Sports, Sirius 88/82/83, XM 88/225/226Odds: Rams favored by 7 points; over/under total 49Last Game: Week 4 2017: Rams 35, @Cowboys 30Playoff History: Tied all-time 4-4; last game DIV 1985: @Rams 20, Cowboys 0

    after falling 0-6 to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. “Tough loss Indianapolis Colts Customized Jerseys ,” head coach Frank Reich said after Sunday’s loss. “We came down here and we knew we were going to get their best effort. We knew we were going up against a top five defense. We played hard but we just didn’t execute the way we needed to.” The Colts were unable to get anything going offensively throughout the whole game, constantly being stifled by a powerful Jacksonville defense. The Colts now have a record of 6-6 and hopes of edging into the playoff picture. According to Seth Wilder of ESPN Analytics, “the Colts entered the day with a 41% chance to reach the playoffs. But after they lost to the Jaguars and the Ravens and Texans won, the Colts’ shot at the postseason is down to 16% Indianapolis Colts T-Shirts , according to live projections from FPI.” After allowing just one sack in six consecutive games, the Colts allowed three on Sunday at Jacksonville. They mustered only 41 rushing yards and lacked significantly in every aspect of the game.“They deserve a lot of credit for stopping us,” Reich said. “Not every game is going to be running up and down the field - especially when you play a defense like that in their home stadium.” The Colts will finish the season with the Cowboys, Giants and appearances against the Texans and Titans. If they have any chance of making the playoffs https://www.coltsfanshop.com/hats , they will look to shake off the dust from this week’s loss and advance into the wild card spot. The Titans are unsure if quarterback Marcus Mariota will be able to play against the Colts on Sunday night due to a stinger and it will likely be some time before there’s clarity about his status.Mariota was a guest on 104.5 FM on Wednesday morning and say that he will “do everything in my power” to get ready to play in a game that will determine whether the Titans advance to the playoffs. Mariota admitted that his power only goes so far when it comes to resolving the issue.“It was one of those deals where it kind of crunched, and basically sent my whole right side numb and tingly,” Mariota said. “It was one of those things, man Indianapolis Colts Hoodie , and it’s unfortunate because nerves are weird, they take time. But again, I am fighting and I am going to do my best to be out there.”The Titans signed Austin Davis to serve as the backup to Blaine Gabbert in the event that Mariota doesn’t get the green light to play this weekend.

    relevance this season Tre Madden Color Rush Jersey , the pundits have continually dubbed the Hawks a run-first team. There is no doubt that the Seahawks lead the NFL in rushing yards and are tied with the Baltimore Ravens for the most rushing attempts in the NFL. However, as we approach the end of the season, some in the national media are once again turning their attention to the importance of the run game and arguing the running game is once again why certain teams are successful. Now, it would be easy for me to point out that of those four teams, the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots have run the most offensive plays in the NFL, meaning that we’d expect those two teams to be near the top of the league in rushing attempts based solely on that fact. However, let’s look a little deeper and see exactly when those four teams are accumulating their rushing attempts. Here are the breakdowns for rushing attempts and run/pass percentage in the first half and second half for these four teams. First half rushing attemptsTeam1st Half Rush Attempts1st Half Pass Attempts1st Half Run:PassTeam1st Half Rush Attempts1st Half Pass Attempts1st Half Run:PassAnd then for the second half. Second half rushing attemptsTeam2nd Half Rush Attempts2nd Half Pass Attempts2nd Half Run:PassTeam2nd Half Rush Attempts2nd Half Pass Attempts2nd Half Run:PassAnd then just for fun, here’s a look at the yards per carry for each of these four teams for the first half and the second half. Yards per carry by halfTeam1st Half Yards Per Carry2nd Half Yards Per CarryOverall YPCTeam1st Half Yards Per Carry2nd Half Yards Per CarryOverall YPCSo Kam Chancellor Color Rush Jersey , based on this extremely small sample, it would appear that three of these four teams are worse at running the ball in the second half and overtime compared to the first half. Interestingly, this would seem to be a point of evidence against the actual establishment of the run, but based on a sample this small obviously nothing would be definitive. In any case, back to the point of the article, the question is whether the Seahawks are a run first team. As noted, they obviously run the ball more often than any other team in the league. However, does that alone make them a run first team? As we’ve seen through the season Shaquem Griffin Color Rush Jersey , the Seahawks offense appears to make the choice to run or pass based on a pre-snap read of the defense, and that happens to have led to them having thrown the ball less than they have run it. In short, they pass when the defense gives look A, otherwise they then default to a run play. The reads obviously vary by opponent and by style of defense the opponent plays, but at the end of the day, the offense is taking what the defense is giving it. And for the most part defenses have chosen to allow the Seahawks to run, because as much as Chris Carson has emerged as a threat to steamroll the Hawks offense down the field one piece of real estate at a time, allowing Seattle to do that is a lot less dangerous than giving Russell Wilson the one on one look he wants deep to either Tyler Lockett or Doug Baldwin. So Bradley McDougald Color Rush Jersey , while the revamped Seahawks run game has produced 13 touchdowns for the team in 2018, the passing game has generated 14 explosive plays for touchdowns (16 or more yards, per Pete Carroll’s definition) and then has produced a further 20 touchdowns on non-explosive plays. Thus, while it can certainly be argued that the Hawks are a run first team, at the end of the day they are a team that runs as well as they can as they wait for the look they want from the defense. And the instant they get the look they want from the defense, then all bets are off because there’s a very good chance we’re about to witness a big play. The Seattle Seahawks improved to 6-5 after their win on Sunday, simultaneously dropping the Carolina Panthers to 6-5 while gaining a heads up advantage for a tiebreaker. The win is the Seahawks’ second in a row following a close win over the Green Bay Packers 10 days earlier, while the Panthers have now dropped three in a row.Seattle remains in 7th place in the NFC because of Washington’s loss last Thursday that dropped them to second in the NFC East while the Dallas Cowboys Brett Hundley Color Rush Jersey , a team that the Seahawks also have a tiebreaker advantage over, went into first. Washington holds an advantage over Seattle by way conference record. The Seahawks will now have to monitor that situation as Washington tries to recover from the loss of quarterback Alex Smith for the rest of the season; Washington’s next game is at the Philadelphia Eagles next Monday.The Seahawks now have four of their five remaining games at home, including next Sunday against the 2-9 San Francisco 49ers. They then host the Minnesota Vikings, a team currently ahead of them in the wild card at 5-4-1. The Vikings host the Packers on Sunday night, then play at the New England Patriots next week.Prior to Sunday, Seattle was said to have about a 75% chance to make the playoffs if they had beaten the Panthers. Thanks to Graham Gano and Sebastian Janikowksi (and Russell Wilson and so on and so for that) that did happen. A few more things breaking correctly and those odds will shoot up even more by next week.
