Juice Check: Week 5 vs. Cardinals When injuries mount

Postby liny195 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 7:25 am

Nick Mullens Jersey , football guys say “Next Man Up.” For San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk, the Arizona Cardinals game was more like “Last Man Standing.” Besides Jerick McKinnon and Jimmy Garoppolo’s season-ending injuries, Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis were injured-inactive, Matt Breida had to leave after 13 snaps, and backup RB Raheem Mostert came down with a bad case of fumbleitis. That skill-player-deprived offense then had to play 98 snaps, the most for any NFL team in five years, due to the deadly combination of a strong running game and five turnovers. It was an offensive treadmill that never lead anywhere, like one of those dreams where you run and run forever and never get away from the monster (who is Chandler Jones, in this case).The result was a huge game for Juice, who played 68 snaps — a whole game’s worth most weeks, but only 70% of the Niner’s offensive marathon this time. He was targeted seven times, catching six for 75 yards, and even had an ultra-rare run for 12 yards. To top it all off, he shed a blocker and tackled Tre Boston after that safety intercepted a pass.He’ll be at least as needed Monday night against Green Bay, since four key skill players missed practice Friday due to injury: Matt Brieda, Pierre Gar莽on, Dante Pettis Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , and Trent Taylor (plus McKinnon of course). Star TE Kittle and 3/5 of the offensive line were limited in practice. At this rate, Juszczyk will be the leading receiver AND rusher.To be fair, the versatile FB was clearly a big part of Kyle Shanahan’s screen-heavy opening script, long before the in-game injuries and turnovers changed the tenor of the game. Twice on the first drive, he made an initial feint at a pass protection block, then turned around for a screen — and a big gain. The first play gained 16 yards.Better yet, Shanahancame right back 3 plays later with the exact same play — for 26 yards down to the two-yard line.I’m always amazed at how Shanahan finds a way in every single game to show formations not previously seen during the season. Last Sunday, Juszczyk generally lined up alongside the QB, not behind the tackle as before but in between the tackle and guard, on either side. He also ran a couple of plays where the FB lined up on the right wing or wide right, and then motioned back into I-formation. That’s a new one.Let’s not forget the excellent blocking job that Juszczyk continues to do in the running game. He’s a key reason for these long runs that Breida keeps breaking off, as Juice excels in getting to the second level defender, and Breida has excellent timing to hit the hole his FB just created at the perfect time. A lot of RBs do that on the line — that’s their job — but Juice and Breida are great at doing it a bit further downfield or running outside.On Breida’s first big run, a 17-yard pickup, watch how Juszczyk submarines defensive end Chandler Jones (55) keeping the speedy running back inches away from the DE’s grasp.With the offensive line starting to show run-game dominance, the fullback running a little and Breida working on his receiving, it’s tempting to dream of a healthy Niners squad running a 3-back formation with Quarterback Nick Mullens Jersey , say, McKinnon, Breida and Juszczyk — any of whom could run or go deep. Does a defense stay in base, leaving potentially 3 linebackers covering these potential receivers? Or go nickel, and face two explosive runners with a lead fullback? That’s a tough choice. I’d love to see them have to make it. For now, we’ll be using the disclaimer of “It’s just one game, and it’s against the Raiders” when describing Nick Mullens near historic performance on Thursday Night. But there’s a big if. If Mullens were to continue starting, and I don’t see why the 49ers would not start him against the New York Giants, the schedule offers some potentially winnable games. If he plays well enough to win maybe five or six games by season’s end, the 49ers suddenly have more than a backup — they have a trade candidate. Nick Mullens nearly had a perfect passer rating Thursday Night. Again, it’s against the Raiders defense and the Giants defense isn’t going to provide many answers either. Teams also will need to get film on him so we can watch him regress. For now, the arrow is looking up for him to at least be a decent backup. C.J. Beathard is a career backup. That’s fine. That’s who he is. If Mullens were to play and continue to play lights out with this banged up 49ers team, quarterback needy teams would want him. For starters, Mullens will have displayed he can play in an NFL system, one of the most difficult systems in Kyle Shanahan. Another thing is his age. He’s only two years removed from college, which would make him a perfect building block for any offense—and he has the NFL experience no rookie in the draft would get (assuming he doesn’t fall apart). But most important is his contract. Mullens’ contract ends in 2019, the only negative Nick Mullens Jersey , but it’s a UDFA contract that has a 2019 salary of $570,000 (per Over the Cap). Furthermore, if he were to play out his deal, he would be an exclusive rights free agent due to only have two accrued seasons. The 49ers (or any team if he were traded) would be able to tender him at any salary they want. The following year (2020) he would be a restricted free agent, and the year after that (2021) he would be an unrestricted free agent.Remember the Jimmy Garoppolo trade and how he netted a ‘generous’ second round pick from the Niners when the going rate for Jimmy G was multiple first rounders? A team would get Mullens for the entire season on the cheap, and then the option to either work out a long-term deal or franchise him. Also, Mullens is working with much less talent than Garoppolo did during his brief starting stint in New England. Not to mention the larger sample size than the latter had to justify the pick. Right now, the worst case is Mullens regresses quickly and ends up back on the practice squad, released, or allowed to walk after his deal expires. The middle case is Mullens takes Beathard’s job as a backup and the 49ers find a reliable backup in him moving forward. The best case, if Mullens plays very, very well, is the 49ers could deal him for picks in the draft. It’s too good a situation to not have. All of this is riding on if Mullens can continue playing well for the rest of the year. And if he ever starts again. But with nothing but sunshine and rainbows coming out of his first start, why not think optimistically?

9/25: Kerry Wynn’s world, offensive line improvements

Postby liny195 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 7:34 am

Giants news Cheap Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey ,, more Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines to get your Tuesday started.Kerry Wynn making things happenDefensive end Kerry Wynn had one of the best games of his career on Sunday with 5 tackles, a pass defensed and a critical forced fumble that led to a turnover.“I try to make sure I’m always around the ball. When you’re around the ball, good things tend to happen,” Wynn said.” Just running around and trying to make stuff happen. I’m having fun with the defense. I love it so far.”“Comparison is a waste of time”That was Giants offensive tackle Nate Solder when he was asked on Monday to compare rookie running back Saquon Barkley to other players he has been around.“I think Saquon’s just unique and a very talented guy and obviously a great teammate and so to have guys like that to make up for a lot of the things we might screw up and make big plays regardless of that, despite that,” Solder said. “If we can continue to solidify what we’re doing http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-alec-ogletree-jersey , get better at what we’re doing and just be a more cohesive unit, I think that will really help us in the future.”Solder: Line still has to improveAsked about the play of veteran center John Greco in Sunday’s game, Solder spoke about the offensive line as a whole.“We have a lot to work on and I think he [Greco] did an excellent job. I thought that his communication was very clear and he understands the offense as well as anybody, so to get that communicated across the board, but we weren’t perfect and we need to be a lot better and that’s not John, that’s all of us and we can’t make excuses because it was loud or because we did something different or whatever, we have to continue to work hard to be as efficient as possible,” Solder said.Around the Inter-GoogleEli Manning on Giants' First Win: 'I'm Proud Of The Team' | WFAN Sports Radio 66AM 101.9FMEli Manning and the Giants offense came alive in Week 3, defeating the Texans 27-22 for their first win of the season.

Behind quarterback Eli Manning's two touchdown passes, running back Saquon Barkley's TD run and wide receiver Odell Beckham's 109 yards receiving, the Giants (1-2) won their first game of the season.Giants injury report, 9/7: Olivier Vernon OUT vs. Jacksonville The New York Giants made official on Friday the bad news we have pretty much been anticipating all week. Linebacker Olivier Vernon, the team’s most accomplished pass rusher on a team that doesn’t have enough of those Cheap Will Hernandez Jersey , will not play Sunday in the season-opener vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars.Vernon has been ruled out because of an ankle injury that kept him off the practice field all week.Vernon suffered the injury in practice on August 26. He has not practiced since.“It’s just the other guys at that position have to step up, and it’s going to be multiple guys handling whatever that job was, whether it’s OV outside if he doesn’t end up playing, or linebacker inside, or a guy at safety,” defensive coordinator James Bettcher said on Thursday. “There will be different guys sharing some of that responsibility.”Two of those could be veteran Connor Barwin and rookie third-round pick Lorenzo Carter. The Giants could also increase the workload of Kareem Martin and ask newly-acquired defensive end Mario Edwards to play more on passing downs.Linebacker Tae Davis (hamstring) is also out.The Jaguars have no players listed on their Friday injury report.Week 6 Injury ReportPlayerPositionInjuryTues.Wed.Game StatusPlayerPositionInjuryTues.Wed.Game Status

College football games

Postby liny195 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 7:56 am

Womens Connor Barwin Jersey , players to watch: Quarterbacks on the menu Happy Saturday everyone, and welcome to Week 4 of the college football season!Is it hard to believe that, somehow, we’re roughly a quarter of the way through college’s regular season? As we’re starting to get into the meat of the college schedule, we have a good slate of games today including some teams we have yet to talk about. The New York Giants haven’t had anything like the start to their season they would have liked, and have many questioning the decision to draft Saquon Barkley instead of a quarterback. This week we have several matchups involving quarterbacks in whom the Giants could be interested if they want to bring in competition for Kyle Lauletta. That, as well as plenty of high-profile prospects in games that could be good scouting tape.So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get to the games!(2) Georgia at Missouri ESPN - NoonThis game is going to boast a bevy of future NFL players, but the top prospect is the one who won’t be on draft boards come the spring of 2019. Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm is one of the top quarterback prospects in the country with NFL size, arm strength, accuracy Authentic Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , and football IQ. Perhaps most importantly, he has been in big situations since his little league team fell just short of representing the Unite States in the Little League World Series. Missouri has a quarterback of their own who is drawing scouts’ more immediate attention. Drew Lock has every measurable trait that gets scouts excited, and is in the conversation to be a top-10 pick in April. With his size (6-foot-4, 230 pounds), quick-twitch athleticism, and plus arm strength, he has drawn comparisons to Josh Allen and Carson Wentz. But, like Allen, Lock struggles with accuracy and consistency in the passing game. That is concerning, but scouts will invariably be drawn to his physical abilities, and there will be plenty of coaches who will be convinced that they can fix the consistency issues in his game.Players to watchGeorgia Jake Fromm (QB)Deandre Baker (CB)Terry Godwin (WR)J.R. Reed (S)D’Andre Walker (DE)MissouriDrew Lock (QB)(3) Clemson at Georgia TechABC - 3:30 p.m. We haven’t talked about Clemson much this year www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com , but they once again figure to be heavy-hitters in the College Football Playoff picture. Powered by one of the most talented defensive fronts in all of college football, Clemson is fun to watch and should be in every game they play. The Clemson roster is replete with not just future NFL players, but players who figure to be highly drafted. Clelin Ferrell and Christian Wilkins in particular could have declared for the draft following the 2017 season and would have been drafted on the first day, but opted to return to school and keep the talented defensive line together for another run at a championship.The Tigers should beat Georgia Tech, but they very well could have their hands full with the Yellow Jacket’s triple-option offense. The triple option is rare to see outside of games involving the military academies, but it has proven to be an excellent way for GT to maximize its limited talent pool. Players to watchClemsonClelinn Ferrell (DE)Christian Wilkins (DT)Dexter Lawrence (DT) Albert Huggins (DT)Trayvon Mullen (CB)Isaiah Simmons (S)Mitch Hyatt (OT)Georgia TechParker Braun (OG)(7) Stanford at (20) OregonABC - 8 p.m.It is somewhat rare for those of us on the east coast to see these two west coast teams playing this early in the day, especially against each other. This should be an exciting game, pitting one of the top quarterback prospects against the nation’s best scoring defense. Oregon’s Justin Herbert is that quarterback, and like Lock possesses intriguing measurables. At 6-6, 230 pounds (school measurements), he is a big New York Giants T-Shirt , strong quarterback with the arm to fire the ball down the field or into tight windows, or throw down the field with touch. He also has the athleticism to make a defense regret giving him space as a runner. Stanford fields one of the best defenses in the nation, but they don’t have many highly regarded prospects in this year’s draft. Stanford’s top prospect will likely be running back Bryce Love, who returns from a knee injury this week. Love could have declared for last year’s draft, and would have been highly drafted coming off an impressive 223-carry effort that saw him score 19 touchdowns and average 8.1 yards per carry. Instead he returned to school, but has yet to match the offensive production from his sophomore and junior seasons. He’ll hope to get his season on track this season against Oregon.Players to watchStanfordBryce Love (RB)Nate Herbig (OL)Devery Hamilton (OT)Jesse Burkett (OC)J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (WR)Kaden Smith (TE)Alijah Holder (CB)OregonJustin Herbert (QB) Jalen Jelks (EDGE) The New York Giants are parting ways with 2015 first-round draft pick Ereck Flowers.Coach Pat Shurmur said Monday the offensive tackle who was the ninth pick overall was going to be cut or traded by 4 p.m. on Tuesday.The move isn't a surprise for the Giants (1-4). Flowers lost his starting job at right tackle to Chad Wheeler after the second game of the season and the play of the line picked up.Flowers has been a disappointment since being taken out of Miami. He was supposed to be the team's left tackle for the next decade. His play was so poor New York signed former New England Patriots left tackle Nate Solder to a four-year, $62 million contract as a free agent this spring .New general manager Dave Gettleman also decided after last season not to pick up the option on the final year of Flowers' rookie contract. He is making almost $2.4 million this season.During the offseason, former Giants coach Ben McAdoo criticized Flowers play.Shurmur moved Flowers to right tackle after Solder was signed and said he was getting a fresh start.Flowers was not at the Giants' practice Monday."It has run its course," Shurmur said of the decision to drop Flowers. "We appreciate Ereck's efforts. We wish him the best. Sometimes a change of scenery is good for a person."Flowers started 48 regular-season games and one postseason game in three-plus seasons.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Looks like Pittsburgh Steelers running bac

Postby liny195 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 8:14 am

James Conner’s balky left ankle won’t be ready to go against the Patriots.The AFC North leaders downgraded Conner from questionable to doubtful for Sunday’s game against New England. Conner Josh Gordon Jersey , who is sixth in the NFL with 909 yards rushing, skipped last week’s game against Oakland and was limited in practice on Friday. Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley will fill in for Conner if he’s unable to go.Pittsburgh also placed starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert on injured reserve with a knee injury. Gilbert hasn’t played since sustaining the injury against Cincinnati in October.The Steelers filled Gilbert’s roster spot by activating wide receiver Eli Rogers. The game will be Rogers’ first since he tore the ACL in his right knee in last season’s playoff loss to Jacksonville.Week 4 Patriots vs Dolphins: James White scores one play after Kyle Van Noy fumble recovery The New England Patriots may not be firing on all cylinders, but on most of them: midway through the second quarter Authentic Phillip Dorsett Jersey Salute to Service , the team is up 17-0 against the visiting Miami Dolphins after two big plays allowed the Patriots to add to their lead.First, linebacker Kyle Van Noy reacted quickly to a bad snap from center Travis Swanson to quarterback Ryan Tannehill:Despite Swanson and Tannehill in good position, Van Noy was able to fall on the loose football and give New England a short field. Just one play later Limited Danny Shelton Jersey , the team took advantage of the takeaway:White, who usually is more active as a pass catcher out of the backfield, received his sixth carry of the day and he made the most out of it. The veteran reversed course and was able to reach the end zone for the Patriots’ second touchdown of the day.

Week 3 Patriots Friday injury report: Rob Gronkowski

Postby liny195 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 8:33 am

Eric Rowe Jersey , Deatrich Wise, Sony Michel are fully healthy! The New England Patriots released their final injury report of week 3 as they prepare to face the Detroit Lions. There are some big changes for New England, with a tight end declared OUT for the game.OUTBoth teams have declared a player out and Hollister will miss his second game over the first three weeks of the season. Hollister was a new addition to the injury report on Friday, so hopefully the injury isn’t long-term.DoubtfulBoth of these Patriots players are unlikely to play and that means bigger roles for Duron Harmon and Derek Rivers, respectively. There’s a chance they could clear the concussion protocol ahead of the game, but players with the “doubtful” tag rarely play.QuestionableAll of these players should be game-time decisions. LaAdrian Waddle should start in Cannon’s place, while Jason McCourty could get his first start at cornerback over Rowe. Ebner’s availability will be important with Chung doubtful since Chung backs up Ebner on some special teams packages.Gordon has a chance to play in his first week with the Patriots and his availability is probably more related to how well he’s picked up the playbook.Removed from ReportAll players should be available, which is a boon for New England. Gronkowski and Michel will be important with Hollister sidelined Mike Gillislee Jersey Salute to Service , while Wise should have a big role if Flowers doesn’t play. One Patriots fan decided to show his displeasure with Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill‘s 75-yard touchdown with a 16-ounce salute.And it will apparently be the last beer he drinks at Gillette Stadium.The Patriots just announced that the fan was located and his name was turned over to local police.“Gillette Stadium security has identified the fan who violated the fan code of conduct by tossing beer onto a player during the game last night,” the statement read. “The matter has been turned over to local law enforcement and the fan will be sent a letter of disinvite to all future events at Gillette Stadium.”Two things: 1) Good, and 2) “Sent a letter of disinvite” sounds a so much classier than “we have banned this drunken idiot.” (In the future, I will be sending letters of disinvite from my lawn to all you young whippersnappers and your trashy music.)Hill’s touchdown tied the game at 40 late in the fourth quarter, and has he reached the back of the end zone, a number of Patriots fans suggested to him that he was number one (or something, which you can see at the end of this clip).
75-yard touchdown.
coach [Andy Reid] told me James Develin Jersey , good that he took the high road, but too often, fans think their ticket price entitles them to treat players in a manner that would get them arrested for similar behavior on the street.

Article updated to account for the Dolphins week 10 loss to

Postby liny195 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 8:48 am

The New England Patriots were demolished by the Tennessee Titans Authentic James Harrison Jersey , but Bill Belichick and company are still in the driver’s seat in the AFC East. If the following super-realistic events take place, then the Patriots will be able to clinch the division in week 14.Take note that this isn’t the only scenario, just a very likely scenario.How the Patriots can clinch the AFC EastSo long as the Patriots beat the Dolphins in week 14, they will have the head-to-head tiebreaker sweep against Miami. That means the Patriots would win any tiebreaker scenarios with the Dolphins. If the Patriots get nine wins with one against the Dolphins and then one against either the Jets or Vikings; and the Dolphins lose to the Patriots and then one of their next two opponents; and the Bills and Jets record their eighth loss of the year, then New England will clinch the AFC East in week 14.This works because the Patriots will have 9 wins, making it impossible for the eight-loss Bills and Jets to rank ahead of New England. The scenario also has the Dolphins with seven losses, meaning that at best they could record nine wins on the year- and if the Patriots hold the head-to-head tiebreaker Limited Andre Tippett Jersey , then nine-win at worst New England Patriots would win the division.That’s pretty realistic and there are other options. If the Patriots win their next three, then the Dolphins, Bills, and Jets will be eliminated from the AFC East regardless of how they perform. This scenario has the Patriots reaching 10-3, while handing the Dolphins their sixth loss of the year and New England would have the head-to-head tiebreaker The Bills and Jets have no path to 10 victories.A third path that’s less likely involves the Patriots losing to both the Jets and Vikings, but defeating the Dolphins to get to 8-5. If the Dolphins lose their next three to fall to 5-8; the Bills and Jets lose to the Jaguars and the Titans, respectively; and the Bills and Jets tie in week 14 to have matching 4-8-1 records Irving Fryar Jersey Salute to Service , then the Patriots will also clinch the division.The two previously listed scenarios are far more likely.There are multiple paths to winning the AFC East, but all routes are likely to converge in week 14. Winning the division is the first major milestone that Bill Belichick always has his eyes set on each season- and if the Patriots take care of business, there’s a chance that the week 15 showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers could secure a first round bye for New England. There will be plenty of errors for the Patriots to look at when they study the film of Sunday’s game against the Bears, but they can take some comfort from the fact that they aren’t licking their wounds after a loss.The Patriots overcame three turnovers and a last gasp throw from Mitchell Trubisky to Kevin White to leave Chicago with a 38-31 win. Trubisky uncorked a ball from near midfield to White, who caught it just short of the end zone and wound up being stopped of a touchdown.Chicago’s last chance came after the Patriots chose to punt on 4th-and-6 from the Bears’ 33-yard-line with 30 seconds left. Ryan Allen‘s punt went into the end zone and three completions put the Bears in position to try for a miracle. It wasn’t to be and a pair of interceptions by Trubisky earlier in the second half loom even larger given how close the Bears came to catching up to the Patriots.Tom Brady threw an interception as well — he’s up to seven on the season — and the Patriots lost two fumbles to help the Bears grab a 17-7 lead in the first half. New England was back in the lead by halftime as Cordarrelle Patterson returned a kickoff for a touchdown and James White scored the first of his two touchdowns on the day. They’d add another special teams score when Dont'a Hightower blocked a punt that Kyle Van Noy returned for a touchdown and their play in that phase of the game was essential to the fifth Patriots win of the season.The Patriots will get an extra day to prepare for the Bills next Monday night and part of that process is going to include figuring out whether they’ll have running back Sony Michel. Michel left with a knee injury in the first half and it looked like the kind of injury that could keep him out for a while.Tight end Rob Gronkowski‘s condition will also be a hot topic after he missed Sunday’s game due to a reappearance of the back problems that have plagued him throughout his career. That absence didn’t stop the Patriots from winning on Sunday and Josh Gordon had his first 100-yard day as a Patriot, but they’d surely prefer to have his help in the coming weeks.

The Cleveland Browns bolstered their linebacker depth by sig

Postby liny195 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 9:04 am

Hines off the San Diego Chargers’ practice squad on Saturday.To make roster space Womens Larry Ogunjobi Jersey , the team waived defensive lineman Ifeadi Odenigbo.Hines, 24, is a 6-foot-1 and 235-pound linebacker who went undrafted and signed with the Chargers over the summer. He joined the team’s practice squad after being released during final roster cuts. Hines played at Houston where he was a solid presence for the Cougars defense. In 33 games over four years he recorded 171 total tackles—eight of which were for a loss—forced three fumbles, and had one interception.Cleveland is banged up at linebacker, so there’s a possibility Hines could see some actual game reps provided Chris Kirksey misses his third-consecutive game in Week 4. Backup James Burgess left the team’s Week 3 win over the Jets with a knee injury, and it’s unclear whether he’ll be available against the Raiders.However, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Burgess is day-to-day with an MCL sprain, so Hines could be strictly an insurance policy.Odenigbo was claimed off waivers after being released by the Minnesota Vikings following final roster cuts. While he made the team’s 53-man roster, Odenigbo was not active for any of his three weeks with the team.Many had high hopes the former Northwestern Wildcat would provide some much-needed defensive line depth, but instead he fell victim to in-season NFL roster churn. It probably won’t take long for Odenigbo to catch on somewhere, and he presumably will not be making it through waivers. If he clears Authentic Darren Fells Jersey , there’s a chance he could stay with the Browns on their practice squad. The Steelers survived one week without Le'Veon Bell.Maybe they can do it again.Making his first NFL start, James Conner helped Pittsburgh forget that Bell — the team's disgruntled star running back — isn't around and may not be back anytime soon.Conner scored two touchdowns, rushed for 135 yards and added 57 more on five catches as the Steelers escaped Sunday with a 21-21 tie against the Cleveland Browns, who ended their 17-game losing streak without winning.Conner was more than an adequate fill-in for Bell, who remains separated from the Steelers in an ugly contract dispute.While his teammates slopped around in the rain at FirstEnergy Stadium, Bell continued his holdout in South Florida as his replacement gave the Steelers hope they'll be able to withstand not having one of their biggest stars.Conner could be their newest one.The anti-Bell."I'm so tired of Le'Veon," Steelers right guard David DeCastro told reporters. "I'm so tired of it. Let's just worry about the guys that are here. I know you guys have stories to write and what not. I love Le'Veon, but we have to worry about the guys that are here. That's the only people that matter."Conner scored on a 4-yard run in the second quarter and added a 22-yarder in the fourth as the Steelers opened a 21-7 lead that appeared safe.However, as Pittsburgh appeared on the verge of putting the Browns away, Conner had his lone blemish on an otherwise stellar day.Running right, Conner got stripped by Browns end Myles Garrett and his fumble led to the Browns quickly scoring two touchdowns in the final 7:32 to force overtime.Cleveland had a chance to win it Authentic Damarious Randall Jersey , but linebacker T.J. Watt added a blocked field goal to his four-sack game by getting a hand on Zane Gonzalez's 43-yard field-goal attempt with 9 seconds left.Bell's messy situation cast a shadow over the Steelers all week, bringing a distraction to a team that usually avoids drama. The stand-off could last for a while, and if it does, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin, his staff and the Steelers have to feel better about what Conner can provide."He did some really great things," said superstar receiver Antonio Brown. "He ran well and brought great energy all day. I was excited to see him make some plays, not only in the run game, but in the pass game as well."On a day when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger struggled throwing three interceptions and fumbling twice, Conner was solid and steady."Pressure is always there," said Conner, who survived a cancer scare while he was at Pitt. "You're either feeling pressure or applying pressure. I was trying to apply the pressure today. There were no nerves or nothing. Just playing football."It looked that way. Conner patiently looked for running lanes Womens Denzel Ward Jersey , taking what Cleveland's defense gave him and never trying to do too much.The 23-year-old finished with 192 total yards, matching Bell's best game from last season."I thought he played well," said Roethlisberger, who struggled from the outset. "Ran hard, caught the ball well. Made plays for us. I'm proud of the way he played for this team."Conner took it all in stride. Following the game, he casually accepted congratulations while dressing and came across as composed off the field as he was on it."It is what I expect," he said of his performance. "It's the mentality of our offense. We feel like we're going to run the ball when we want to run the ball so I know the mentality of those guys up front. I knew the lanes were going to be there. I knew today was going to be a good day on the ground, just not enough to win."I have confidence in myself and the guys in front of me blocking, so it's what we expect to do." www.nflshopoutlet.com/detroit-lions

Cleveland Browns:Browns ready to see Lamar Jackson in some c

Postby liny195 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 9:23 am

- Jets safety Jamal Adams recently lamented the fact that his team wasn’t prepared for Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield Youth Trevon Coley Jersey , the first pick in round one of the draft. As the Browns prepare to face the team taken with pick No. 32 in the draft, they’re ready to see Lamar Jackson.Myles Garrett determined to finish (ohio.com) - Myles Garrett came so close to registering a game-changing sack in crunch time Sunday against Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr that he was still shaking his head about it five days later.Nick Chubb named Rookie of the Week (clevelandbrowns.com) - Nick Chubb’s breakout game against Oakland could earn him more carries going forward.At the very least, it earned him the NFL Rookie of the Week. NFL admits blown call in Browns loss to Raiders (ESPN) - The NFL acknowledged Friday that an errant whistle cost the Cleveland Brownsa fumble recovery in their 45-42 overtime loss to the Oakland Raiders last Sunday.NFL:Odell Beckham Jr. not happy about Giants offense (NYDN) - The Giants now are officially Odell Beckham Jr.’s team, not Eli Manning’s. And while that already was true the second Beckham signed his five-year, $90 million extension on Aug. 27, coach Pat Shurmur’s refusal on Friday to reprimand Beckham for comments critical of the team and quarterback sealed it.Biggest surprises of the season so far (NFL.com) - What are the biggest surprises of the 2018 NFL season to date? Dan Hanzus takes a look at six of them -- and predicts whether the development will continue in each case.Jerry Jones closes the door on Dez Bryant (105.3 The Fan) - Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones closed the door on a potential return for former receiver Dez Bryant. Travis Benjamin to miss 2-3 weeks with foot injury (Chargers Wire) - Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Chargers wide receiver Travis Benjamin, who was sporting a cast on his foot at practice today, is expected to be out two to three weeks. He’s battled a foot injury much of the season. The hope is he’s back by the Titans game or perhaps after the Week 8 bye. Baker Mayfield's baptism with the Browns is complete.Some coaching chaos made it official.Cleveland's rookie quarterback admitted Wednesday he was stunned by the firings of coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley, who were dismissed within an hour of each other on Monday. Owner Jimmy Haslam cited "internal discord" as the primary reason behind the team's latest reboot."It was just surprising to me," Mayfield said before practice as the Browns began preparing for their game Sunday against quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the high-scoring Kansas City Chiefs. "I have never gone through anything like that. That is my 'welcome to the business moment,' I think."Sadly, coaching swaps and front-office purges are a rite of passage for any Browns player over the past 20 years."This is my third head coach in five years," said linebacker Christian Kirksey. "I am used to it, being able to adjust and stuff."It's mostly new to Mayfield, who went through something similar at Oklahoma when Bob Stoops retired and was replaced by Lincoln Riley."It was different. It was new to us. We used that to come together," he said. "I expect the guys in here to be grown men http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-baker-mayfield-jersey , to be experienced football players and to handle it that way and keep that same mindset of that we have the same goal. We need to reach that and work with each other."With all the distractions, we will see what kind of men we have in this room. Not what kind of team that we have but what kind of men can handle a distraction the right way, can come together and focus on doing their job and doing it at a high level against a great team come Sunday," Mayfield said.As the No. 1 overall pick and fresh face of Cleveland's franchise, Mayfield knows he has to be the one to guide the Browns through more turbulence."Bring it on," he said.The Browns (2-5-1) practiced Wednesday for the first time under the guidance of defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, Buffalo's former coach who will serve as the team's interim coach while general manager John Dorsey takes the initial steps in finding Cleveland's ninth coach since 1999.Rain forced the team inside its facility and the tone was noticeably serious during the portion of the workout open to media members. Williams barked out praise to a few players during position drills.Following practice, Williams said that like Mayfield, he was shocked by the firings and admitted to having reservations about taking over."The hesitancy was, 'Uh, not again,' and I stepped away," he said. "I stepped back, but then, it came back to this. I can't spell quit, let alone do quit. I'm not going to quit on these players. I'm not going to quit on this organization. I'm not going to do whatever. That's just how I had to feel, and when we went through the process Denzel Ward Jersey , we went through the process, and now, let's get on to Kansas City. I blinked a little bit.The brash and boastful Williams didn't announce his candidacy for the job, and he refused to address his role in the New Orleans "Bountygate" scandal.The NFL suspended Williams for the 2012 season after ruling that while the Saints defensive coordinator he orchestrated a program by which players were paid for knocking opponents from a game."That thing was a long time ago," Williams said when asked if he ever imagined being a head coach again. "That's nothing that we're talking about now."The Browns are trying to stay in the present, and that's the challenge.As the losses mount, this season is beginning to feel like so many others. But left guard Joel Bitonio doesn't feel the same sense of dread as in previous years."I don't think we're giving up," he said. "This is a step to try to improve the team. We made a decision early in the season, but we have half the season left. We're a few plays here and there from being 5-2-1 or 4-3-1."We're not far away, and I don't think this is a step where they're tearing everything down. We're just moving in a different direction. We have eight games to prove this team can go out, compete and try to find some wins out there."NOTES: Because of his connection to Mayfield, Riley has been mentioned as a potential candidate for Cleveland's coaching job. Mayfield feels his former coach would adapt easily to the pro game. "I think his style would work, but that is just because of who he is," Mayfield said. "He is smart. He gets his guys to believe in him." ... With RBs coach Freddie Kitchens taking over for Haley, the Browns hired former NFL back Ryan Lindley to their staff. Lindley played for Kitchens with Arizona.

Von Miller acknowledges he's no draft guru and is far from

Postby liny195 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 9:34 am

any kind of expert when it comes to quarterbacks. Well Womens Kevin Zeitler Jersey , except for sacking them, of course.But the Denver Broncos star linebacker knew there was something special about Sam Darnold long before the New York Jets made him the No. 3 overall pick."I don't know nothing about drafting a quarterback or anything like that, but I thought he was the No. 1 pick, for sure," Miller said. "I thought he was the best offensive player in the draft."The Jets sure thought so, even if the teams ahead of them took guys on offense ahead of Darnold. Cleveland made quarterback Baker Mayfield the No. 1 overall pick, while the Giants went with running back Saquon Barkley with the next selection.The Jets pounced on Darnold when their turn came up, and Miller can't blame them."Baker Mayfield was the No. 1 pick, and rightfully so," Miller said. "But in my opinion, watching everything, from a pass rusher's point of view, I just felt like (Darnold) was the No. 1 pick in the draft. He wasn't the No. 1 pick, but he's definitely playing like it."Well, not quite. But Miller will get a chance for an up-close evaluation Sunday when the Broncos (2-2) travel to MetLife Stadium to take on Darnold's Jets (1-3).Darnold had a terrific NFL debut with two touchdown throws in New York's win at Detroit, but has struggled a bit in the three games since — all losses — along with the rest of the Jets' offense. He has just two TD passes in that span and four interceptions, although he didn't toss one last Sunday at Jacksonville."As a team, I feel like we are really close, and for me personally I feel like I'm just on the edge Youth Baker Mayfield Jersey ," Darnold said. "I've just got to continue to find completions, hit my guys deep when they're there. It'll come, it's just a timing thing. It's going to click one of these games, I know it is."This might be a tough week to get things going, though. Especially while facing a defense led by Miller, who has four sacks and two forced fumbles this season.And, Darnold realizes Miller will be looking to add to those totals — despite all the high praise."It's pretty cool that he said it," Darnold said. "It's definitely very humbling, very flattering, but at the same time, we're going up against him. ... I'm just going to go out there and we're going to handle him the way that we need to and go about our business that way."Here are some other things to know about the matchup between the Broncos and Jets:ON THE CASEBroncos quarterback Case Keenum had three touchdown passes in Denver's 27-24 season-opening win against Seattle.He has none in the three games since.Keenum, who signed a two-year, $36 million deal with Denver in March, is the first Broncos QB since John Elway in 1986 to go three straight games with at least 20 throws and no TDs.SKIDDINGThe Jets are looking to snap a three-game losing streak and avoid their fourth four-game skid under coach Todd Bowles.New York ended last season by losing four in a row, and also dropped that many twice in 2016 — with the team finishing 5-11 both years. Bowles is in his fourth season with the Jets and the heat has been turned up a bit under his seat. New York is 1-7 in its past eight, and 3-12 in the past 15.ON NOTICEThe Broncos are coming off their first loss in 66 home games in which they held a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter, and nobody is spared criticism over Denver's Monday night meltdown in a 27-23 loss to the Chiefs."We need more from our main guys on both sides of the ball," coach Vance Joseph said of the Broncos' cratering in crunch time.And from the coaches."The bottom line is in this league in tough games, we have to be our best as coaches when it matters Youth Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey ," Joseph said. "You can call a great game for 3陆 quarters, but for half a quarter when the game is on the line, we have to be our best. That is my job to help our players pull these games out."BUTT OUTKeenum said he was encouraged by the way Jeff Heuerman played Monday night (four catches for 57 yards, both career highs) after Jake Butt blew out his left knee at a special teams practice last week, depriving the Broncos of their top tight end for the rest of the season.Keenum said he thinks Heuerman can be the kind of safety valve he's had at that position at other times in his career, such as last year in Minnesota with Kyle Randolph."Yeah, I think Jeff's a great player. I think he showed it the other night that he's in the right place at the right time, big target and he's hard to tackle," Keenum said. "So, a guy I'm excited to get the ball to more and more."WIPE OUTIf Jets running back Isaiah Crowell gets into the end zone, all eyes will be on how he celebrates.He was penalized and given a stern talking to by Bowles after he celebrated his second TD run of the game by wiping the ball against his rear end and firing it into the stands. Crowell ended up getting fined $13,369 by the NFL for unsportsmanlike conduct."It won't happen again," said Crowell, who didn't score at Jacksonville last Sunday — but got an endorsement deal from a company that sells a toilet paper alternative for men.AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Stapleton contributed. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger hopes his balky right elbow will be good to go Sunday against Kansas City.The 36-year-old says he banged his elbow on Pittsburgh's next-to-last offensive snap during last week's ugly tie in Cleveland. Roethlisberger fumbled on the following play after getting hit by Browns linebacker Genard Avery.Roethlisberger declined to say whether he had an MRI exam on the elbow. He is unlikely to practice on Wednesday, though that is not unusual for the 15-year veteran. Roethlisberger had a difficult day overall against the Browns, throwing three interceptions and fumbling twice.Second-year quarterback Josh Dobbs, who beat out veteran Landry Jones to serve as Roethlisberger's primary backup, will run with the first team if Roethlisberger cannot practice.Roethlisberger has missed just six games because of injury since the start of the 2013 season.
