  Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator
Posted by: laiyongcai92 - 02-21-2019, 05:45 PM - Forum: General News - No Replies

Freddie Kitchens has a big task facing him on Sunday.The team’s new offensive coordinator has to put together a game plan to help the Browns keep pace with the Kansas City Chiefs offense http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com...ert-jersey , which is scoring an NFL-high of 36.2 points per game.It will also be the first time that Kitchens, who was promoted to the job on Monday after the Browns fired head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley, will call plays during a game in the regular season. But Kitchens, who has been coaching in the NFL since 2006, is taking things in stride, at least publicly. When asked on Thursday about the pressure of calling plays, Kitchens took a pretty laid back approach, according to clevelandbrowns.com:It may sound odd at first http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com...lve-jersey , but Kitchens makes a good point. If he can keep his wits about him on Sunday, calling out a play becomes easy. The hard part falls on the players, as center JC Tretter needs to make the correct protection call, running back Nick Chubb needs to hit the right hole, wide receiver Antonio Callaway needs to not get pushed off his route, and quarterback Baker Mayfield needs to make the correct throw, and so on.Do all that, and Kitchens ends up looking like a genius. And if they don’t? Well Womens Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey , then we will all get to see just how chill Kitchens really is on game days. Former Browns head coach Sam Rutigliano, a longtime mentor to Todd Haley, says that Haley was expecting to be named Cleveland’s interim head coach when Hue Jackson was fired. Instead, Haley was fired too.Rutigliano, who was the Browns’ head coach from 1978 to 1984 and has been described by Haley as an influential figure in his coaching career, said on 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland that Haley thought he’d be Jackson’s replacement.“Why did they fire Todd Haley?” Rutigliano said. “I talked to him on the phone. When he was going to the office he thought he was going to take over. And he got fired. . . . He said to me, ‘I had no idea. When I was going back into the office I thought possibly if they were going to let Hue Jackson go, that I would have the opportunity now to be the interim coach and then get the job eventually http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com...oun-jersey , and that’s why I came here.’ And then it went the opposite direction.”Rutigliano said that Haley and Jackson never saw eye to eye, and that Jackson, with his 1-31 record in his first two years in Cleveland, shouldn’t have been telling Haley how to run the offense.“I don’t think they had a relationship,” Rutigliano said. “You’re working with a guy who had one win and 31 losses and he’s going to tell you what to do? And he proved all three years that he was incompetent. He wasn’t qualified for the job.”The 85-year-old Rutigliano still follows the Browns closely, and still has strong opinions about the team. And he clearly believes that the team is currently being run poorly. Custom Miami Dolphins Jerseys

  Trying To Make Sense Of The Browns’ OL Decisions -
Posted by: laiyongcai92 - 02-21-2019, 05:33 PM - Forum: General News - No Replies

Ez Likes Sunday Morning 8/5/18 This last week the Cleveland Browns surprised a great many by announcing they were moving Left Guard Joel Bitonio to Left Tackle http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com...ert-jersey , a position which the Browns haven’t had to even think about since 2007, the year they drafted the great Joe Thomas.With the 3rd pick in that year’s draft, the Browns would solidify one of the more important positions in the game with a player who, in my humble, if estimable (and yes a little biased) opinion, will go down as the greatest ever there ever was at protecting the blind side.In about five years we’ll be celebrating his entry into the pro football hall of fame, as he will no doubt make it on his first appearance on the ballot.Two sad aspects of that tale: despite Thomas’ truly elite play from basically his first snap to his last (and the over 10,000 uninterrupted in between) it never mattered because the quarterbacks he wound up protecting were terrible-to-mediocre at best, and we mostly resided in terrible territory.The other is that his HOF career is now over as it came to an end against Tennessee last season when he collapsed onto the field at FOSFEF just moments after throwing Brian Orakpo to the ground.Thus, Joe’s time with us ended, and in the wake of that sorrow there immediately arose a need on the roster that we haven’t had in over a decade.That need initially was met by Spencer Drango, a backup guard who was promptly abused by Orakpo and probably put the finishing touches on destroying whatever confidence Cody Kessler may have somehow obtained.I’m not sure Kessler even got off a pass in any of his subsequent appearances.Although, Drango performed much better as the season progressed.Calling it “good” would certainly be a stretch, though from our perspective it’s also hard to gauge when the comparison is the GOAT.Either way, it was clear he wasn’t seen as the answer the 2017 season drew to a close and the 2018 offseason commenced.AnalyticsEven with the switch to the Football Guy, it seems we’re following a similar patternScott R. Galvin-USA TODAY SportsWhen the Browns started this process way back at the beginning of 2016, the word “analytics” was being thrown around heavily when the team hired Paul Depodesta as the new Chief Strategy Officer, pairing with now erstwhile Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown.The term itself began taking on a plethora of different meanings depending on who you talk to.Considering the way the team has come to handle roster situations over the last two years, especially with respect to the quarterback position but also other including this Left Tackle conundrum, I think a way that I personally view the approach has to do mostly with providing as many contingency plans as possible.This has mostly worked up and down the roster.The team essentially threw waves of young players, many acquired with high draft selections, at every position group in the hopes that some would hold down spots, which has happened.This offseason, the new GM John Dorseyaddressed those spots which didn’t have strong answers in the first few waves of attempts.The result overall is a good looking, if unproven, young, talented roster. However, starting Left Tackles aren’t that easy to find.In fact, there’s a paucity of quality Tackles period in the NFL, but the LT’s of course are premium positions due to the nature of their particular task.This was true even with our having more cap space and draft capital than perhaps any team entering any offseason ever.The question hovered all the way up until just before the start of the free agency period, as to whether or not Thomas would make a return or retire.When it was learned the team was heavily courting Nate Solder, who was basically the only LT available, it pretty well signaled the end.We lost out to the New York Giants on the Solder Derby http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com...lve-jersey , and the next highest paid LT of the 2018 Free agency class was...Donald Stephenson, signed by us.He has since retired.The highest paid Right Tackle was Chris Hubbard, also signedby us, and instantly was assumed to be the new starter on the right side.This was somewhat puzzling given the presence of Shon Coleman, 2016 3rd round pick and 2017 starter, who didn’t play especially poorly last year, albeit with more than his share of penalties.It was presumed therefore that the signing of Hubbard was a sign that the team was ready to move Coleman to LT, where he played in college.The DraftAn unlikely candidateBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsWith no real opportunities to upgrade the position outside of Solder via free agency, Cleveland would do what it could do in the draft.Unfortunately, this draft class was particularly weak at the position as well.In order for us to secure the best, we would have had to spend our fourth overall on Mike McGlinchey out of Notre Dame, who ended up going to San Francisco with the ninth pick.Instead, we went with OSU cornerback Denzel Ward, widely regarded as the #1 CB in the draft.Whether Ward turns out to be the better player remains to be seen, but at first blush I’m quite happy with our decision.I agree with the consensus that Ward was the best CB, and actually the best overall player for us, at number 4.I wasn’t especially high on McGlinchey, nor Kolton Miller, the other OT taken in the top half of round one (#15 overall/Raiders).Isaiah Wynn out of UGA was taken at twenty-three by New England, and also may have been a reach.Again, time will tell, but as the first round drew to a close, the Browns went back on the clock to start day two.Perhaps like you, I was surprised at the selection of Austin Corbett, the versatile offensive lineman out of Nevada.He was viewed as a guard in the NFL, and we were set at the guard spot with highly paid players in Joel Bitonio and Kevin Zeitler.Seemed odd that we would spend the 33rd overall on a player that didn’t figure to contribute, unless they thought he could play Left Tackle, the position he played at Nevada, where he started for four years after replacing his predecessor at Left Tackle: Joel Bitonio. In fact, Bitonio and Corbett were friends who trained together prior to us drafting the latter.Considering we had all day to make this decision, I feel like the front office new exactly what it wanted to do and had zero doubts about Corbett being their guy, and it goes back to the contingency mindset.Corbett may have been widely projected as a G in the NFL, but not universally so.Some teams had him rated rather highly as a tackle Womens Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey , as apparently it was viewed at the time, we did: Yet when training camp arrived Corbett saw no snaps at LT, instead filling in with the 2nd team at LG.At this point people are really scratching their head at the selection of the guy with the 33rd overall if he was just going to be depth for an already really good LG in Bitonio.This seemed to be codified into preeminence with the declaration of Joe Thomas himself that Corbett wasn’t a Tackle and wasn’t going to be. While that was going on, apparently the Plan A of moving Coleman over to LT wasn’t working out.At some point we picked up the once highly drafted Greg Robinson to compete for a spot, and he seemed to have taken over the #2 spot on the depth chart behind Coleman, kind of solidifying Thomas’ projection of Corbett.With Coleman unable to garner the confidence of the coaching staff, the decision came down to go to the next option, and that’s Bitonio, who’s never played the position at the NFL level.Corbett now slides into Bitonio’s spot, which now makes sense with his selection at 33.Was this the plan all along, and if it was why not start camp with that configuration?I think the answer to the first question is: probably not.As to the second, I think they either hoped or expected that Shon Coleman would both take a developmental step forward while also stepping back to the side of the line he anchored at Auburn.If that happens, Bitonio stays at his natural spot, and Corbett becomes quality depth.Prior to any of that happening, the possibility that Corbett could himself play the position was no doubt explored extensively before being discarded, which is a determination you can only make after drafting the guy and getting him in your house.This is likely why the decision to draft him instead of say Will Hernandez (taken one pick later by the Giants) who was widely regarded as being a better prospect at the G position.In that particular comparison, I’m guessing the calculus was that whatever the dropoff (if any) in talent is overcome by just the possibility that he could have maybe gotten it done at LT, another contingency. If Bitonio can be the answer at LT, the team will be incredibly fortunate and well situated.While apparently overmatched for T, Corbett should be able to slide right in and do well at LG.Bitonio doesn’t have to be (and won’t be) a continuation of Thomas.That chapter is over - we will never see that level of excellent at the position again.However if Bitonio can be just league average, we can win with that (assuming a lot of other things fall into place).In fact his big contract extension a year ago actually works out to be about league average for OT’s.Is the situation ideal?No, but the team did everything it could to address the position with what it had to work with.There just aren’t that many good LT’s to go out and get when your HOF’er goes down.All eyes now will be on Bitonio, and if he nails it down we’ll be in pretty good shape in one of the game’s most important of position groups.If not, then next year he can slide back to G and we’ll figure out what to do with Corbett.Likely that scenario involves him supplanting J.C. Tretter, whose contract will end, and us drafting a LT with whatever our highest pick is.It’s the last contingency, and hopefully one we won’t have to exercise, both because Bitonio’s held down the role and also because our selection will be too low to focus on a single position to target.We’ll see soon enough, the start of the season is but a month out.Baker Mayfield’s College Offense Part II: Counter If I had to choose one play that encapsulated Baker Mayfield and Lincoln Riley’s offense, it would probably be the Counter play. So much of what the Oklahoma Sooners did was based on Counter, and they ran it incredibly well. (See Part I of this series if you missed it) Counter’s origins and play descriptionMany football plays can be traced clearly back a few generations of coaches but have somewhat murky origin stories. Counter, however, was invented by Tom Osbourne at Nebraska. Osbourne had incredible success with the play in the 80s and 90s http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com...oun-jersey , and Joe Gibbs liked it so much he stole it and used it with his famous Washington “Hogs” teams. From there, the play exploded. Yet another hat tip to Chris Brown, who writes more in-depth about this history.Counter is a gap-blocked run, meaning unlike a zone run there is a predetermined gap through which the RB is to run. Every counter play has three componentsBig Grinown blocks on the playsideTongueullers from the backside (almost always two, but in certain situations only one)And some form of misdirection away from the eventual direction of the playThe traditional counter play fakes the run away from the eventual playside, allowing the pulls time to develop. Meanwhile the angles that players can take on the down blocks give them a great advantage to washing players down the line. As the pullers reach their targets, they have momentum toward the playside of the run. This action of down blocks headed in one direction and pulls headed opposite creates a natural split in the defense. The first puller kicks out the end man on the line of scrimmage, the second puller wraps to pick someone up on the second level, and the back runs through the opening. It is power football, and it is beautiful.Osbourne’s original version pulled two backside linemen to wrap around the play, with a fullback or TE plugging the gap created by the pullers. Gibbs saw the gap left by the pullers as a liability in the pro game (I wouldn’t trust a fullback to effectively seal Myles Garrett or Aaron Donald in this situation, would you?), so he switched the role of the FB and backside tackle:This switch had the added benefit of making the Counter run overlap with the Power run even more than it previously had (i.e. a lot), which created additional practice efficiency. Now the tackle’s job was the same on both plays, meaning he only had to practice one technique.Lincoln Riley’s Oklahoma CounterFast forward to 2018 and a lot has changed on the cutting edge of offensive football. Lincoln Riley has taken this classic running play and made it the centerpiece of an offense that evolved from the “throw it every down and then throw it again” offenses of the Air Raid. With Baker Mayfield as his quarterback, he developed an offense that was as beautiful as it was lethal.From my perspective, there are two parts to Riley’s genius. The first is his creativity and the new ways he is able to deliver, disguise, and combine tried-and-true ideas on the football field. The second—which is perhaps the reason for the duration and the degree of his success—is the way that everything in his offense fits so well together. So few plays in the offense are playcalling cul-de-sacs, leading down one road only to awkwardly circle around at a dead end. Riley’s offense is more like the traffic grid in Futurama, a 3-D network where Riley can go anywhere at any time. Almost every play is setting up a fake for another play or looks exactly like a third play until the receiver breaks the opposite way.Riley’s drive and courage to be “different” and the way he has seemingly no wasted space in the playbook are both firmly in step with the Air Raid ethos, even if he is running the ball more than he is airing it out.Base shotgun counterOklahoma’s typical counter play has reverted back to the old Tom Osbourne style with the GT pull (though honestly they run so many variations of the play it is hard to call any variation “normal”).They run the play from a shotgun spread formation, a development which should hopefully surprise no one:While the GT pull was the typical style of blocking during my film study, there were other times where a FB or TE would pull instead:There were also times where the Center pulled. This appeared to be an adjustment or line call based on the defensive front:On these plays the misdirection element to the play is the threat of the backside QB run. Instead of having the back fake one way and head the other, the offense presents the threat of running to the backside of the play with the QB. There is no way to be certain without inside information, but this could be just a fake or it could actually be a read. My best guess is that they have one call for each.The added benefit of this is that the QB can act like a blocker by optioning a defensive player, thus removing the need for a tackle or FB to seal off the backside. This means Riley’s variation has effectively added another blocker to make the play even more deadly.Regardless of who pulls and what the misdirection is, the elements remain the sameBig Grinown blocks to the play sidePullers from the back sideMisdirection awayConstraintThe real key to Oklahoma’s version of the play isn’t just that it is sound on a whiteboard, or that they players are well-coached and execute it well (and both things are true). The key is that unlike the traditional counter play where the misdirection is a simple step by the back, Riley’s counter series is true misdirection: the ball can actually make it to the back side of the play on any given down.There are always down blocks to the playside and pulls from the backside, but the misdirection element of Counter takes many forms.If the linebackers are keying the running back, Riley can draw upon a back-away (“BASH”) type of counter play that sends the pullers in one direction and the backs the other:If Oklahoma were to always fake the pass to this back and run to the pulls, linebackers could just follow the pullers to the ball. But as with seemingly every piece in Riley’s offense Authentic Kevin Zeitler Jersey , the fake isn’t a dead end:That’s the same play, only the ball goes the other way. This could be a type of option for Baker to keep on the Counter or throw the swing route to the back, but it looks to me like a predetermined call.Here is a wrinkle where OU snapped the ball directly to the running back and faked a pitch to the QB on the backside (by my count this fake affects 4 OSU defenders):Is that Baker Mayfield under center!? Just kidding. It’s a counter from the wildcat in a jumbo package on 4th and 1:OU could also read a backside player but save Mayfield’s legs by optioning between giving the ball on counter and throwing a quick pass to a back headed the opposite way. To make it even harder to defend, they would cross backs in the backfield:The play above looks like a true read to me, where Mayfield keeps the ball long enough to decide to give or pull it. Here is that same play but the read takes Mayfield to the downhill runner:And with players like Dede Westbrook and Marquisema Brown, they ran plenty of jet motion along with counter as well:And again, that Jet motion isn’t just a fake, they give it to that player:If you get caught watching the guards and lose contain, one of the fastest skill position players in the FBS could be eating up yardage there.RPOsAs if that weren’t enough to keep track of, Riley, Mayfield, and the Sooners could dial up a number of Run Pass Options off of the counter play to keep defenses honest. Here is a slant thrown behind safeties coming up to stop the run:And here is an out thrown against a soft corner, who must play deep because his safety help is up for the run:With both plays, Mayfield is reading the defense’s reaction to the pulls to determine whether to hand the ball off to the run or throw it to the wide receiver.Mayfield, the point guardAre you dizzy yet? Defenses sure were. With this seemingly endless array of variations, Riley could get the ball into the hands of his playmakers and keep defenses on their heels. Oklahoma could pull anyone, they could run the classic counter play or give ball to the misdirection player, they could run the play from any personnel grouping or formation in their offense, and they could attach RPOs to it as well. To a defense it’s a nightmare. But to OU, it was just counter.I haven’t even touched on the play action pass game off of this play yet, and you better believe OU had a good one.There is something about the multiplicity within this play that reminds me much more of the way that NFL offenses work than the typical Air Raid. The idea that they are basing all of this off of one play is classic Air Raid, but the shifts in formation, the tinkering of who does what job on the play, and the way they can attack a defense’s keys is much closer to the way the best pro offenses operate in my opinion. While the classic Air Raid offenses dared you to beat them even though you knew what was coming, Lincoln Riley seems more willing to make gameplan-specific adjustments to what his offense does.At the center of it all directing traffic, getting people lined up and on the right blocks, and making the option reads when necessary was Mayfield. This was one of the most overlooked aspects to his game during the draft process in my opinion, his ability as a “game manager”. I know that’s typically a derogatory term, but much like a point guard he was leading the offense and making it run smoothly even when he wasn’t the one with the ball.

  The final injury reports
Posted by: laiyongcai92 - 02-21-2019, 04:42 PM - Forum: General News - No Replies

for the Titans-Cowboys matchup on Monday Night Football were released today. The news was mostly good for the Titans. Starting safety Kenny Vaccaro will make his return in his home state of Texas Youth Delanie Walker Jersey , coming back from a dislocated elbow suffered in Week 4 against the Eagles. Getting Vaccaro back is big for the Titans defense as Kendrick Lewis has struggled to replace him in the lineup over the past three games. The Titans will also get Quinton Spain and Josh Kline back this week. Spain missed the end of the Ravens game and the entire Chargers game with a shoulder injury while Kline left the Chargers game during the final drive with an ankle issue. The Titans have only had their starting offensive line intact for an entire game once this season. That just happened to be the best offensive performance of the season against the Eagles. The Titans will hope to see the big boys make it through this game unscathed. Corey Davis will be a full go as expected after landing on the injury report with a hamstring early in the week. This seems to be part of the team’s plan to manage his reps in an effort to keep him healthy for Will Compton has a chance to return to the lineup from a hamstring injury suffered at the end of the Eagles game. He’s listed as questionable. With Wesley Woodyard, Rashaan Evans, and Jayon Brown ahead of him at inside linebacker, Compton is more of a special teams contributor and depth player right now. The bad news from a Titans perspective is that Derrick Morgan is officially out for this game with a shoulder injury. Morgan’s impact has been limited this season, but he’s still a veteran pass rusher who has a history of being productive. Brian Orakpo, Harold Landry Womens Taylor Lewan Jersey , Kamalei Correa, and Sharif Finch will all likely get more work in Morgan’s absence. The Cowboys will be without pass rushing defensive tackle David Irving and speedy gadget receiver Tavon Austin on Monday night as they have been ruled out. Irving is s particularly tough loss for Dallas as he’s easily the team’s best interior pass rusher. The Cowboys have two players that are listed as questionable. Edge rusher Randy Gregory and two time All-Pro guard Zack Martin are both dealing with knee injuries and could be ruled in or out closer to game time. Martin is the best guard in the NFL so him being out or limited would make a big difference in what the Cowboys can do up front. Starting tight end Geoff Swaim is listed as doubtful with a knee injury as well. He’s been decent in his first season as a starter, but this isn’t a position where the Cowboys excel. If Swaim can’t go Blake Jarwin and Rico Gathers would fill in. It’s that time of the week where I ask what player from the opposing team of this week’s matchup would you trade for. This week’s opponent happens to be the AFC East Titans: The Patriots.Yeah it’s no secret that the Titans are full of former Patriots: head coach Mike Vrabel, RB Dion Lewis, corners Logan Ryan and Malcolm Butler, and right guard Josh Kline. Bill Belichick rarely leaves a detail uncovered Womens Jurrell Casey Jersey , so he’ll be prepared with the knowledge of his former players and assistants. But with that said, the Patriots offense is looking like the Patriots offense after a slow start to the season. Even with Rob Gronkowski’s absence the last two games, the presence of Brady’s safety net Julian Edelman, James White, Cordarrelle Patterson (as a running back) and (some guy named) Josh Gordon has given New England enough weapons to overwhelm whatever defense they come across. So, who would you steal from the Patriots (again)?Tom Brady would be an obvious answer http://www.titansfootballauthentics.com/...-authentic , but he’s 41 so who knows how long he’d last on the Titans (Plus we’ve never seen him play outside Belichick’s offense). Josh Gordon would probably be my pick. Putting him on Tennessee’s offense would put less pressure on Corey Davis and would give the offense an electrifying pass catcher with vertical speed and ability after the catch. On defense, I’d switch Malcolm Butler with Stephon Gilmore, who’s been great during his time in New England. But I’m not sure who else would merit a spot on the Titans.But I’m getting ahead of myself. Give us your picks for what other player you’d steal from the New England Titans, I mean Patriots!

  The Atlanta Falcons finally got the ball to bounce their way.
Posted by: laiyongcai92 - 02-21-2019, 04:20 PM - Forum: General News - No Replies

They hope that's the start of more good fortune.After a hugely disappointing start to season Cheap Derrick Henry Jersey , the Falcons snapped a three-game losing streak with a 34-29 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, the game ending on a wacky play that nearly worked.With no timeouts and needing a touchdown from the Falcons 21, Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston surprisingly took off running down the middle of the field. As the defense closed in at the 10, he pitched the ball to his left. Adam Humphries had it briefly but lost control. Mike Evans scooped up the loose ball and lateraled it again. DeSean Jackson had a chance to grab it at the 5 and dive for the end zone, but the ball squirted under his hands and out of bounds.Game over."They certainly had a shot for it," Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. "We've had some go the other way on the final play, so it was nice to be on the side where we were on top on the final play."Indeed, Atlanta (2-4) came into the game with three heartbreaking losses. They were in position to knock off Super Bowl champion Philadelphia but couldn't complete a short pass in end zone on the final play. They lost to the Saints in overtime after giving up the tying touchdown with just over a minute remaining. They fell to Cincinnati on a 13-yard TD pass with 7 seconds to go.This time, the Falcons benefited from some huge breaks against the Bucs (2-3). Demontae Kazee picked off a long pass at his own 1 after Winston overthrew his intended receiver. Early in the third quarter, the Bucs had first-and-goal at the Atlanta 2, but Peyton Barber was stuffed for no gain, a false start on tight end Antony Auclair backed them up to the 7, and Winston's pass over the middle was deflected high in the air. When it finally came down, Brian Poole was there to make the interception."We needed that win Brett Kern Jersey ," Kazee said. "I've been depressed the past three or four weeks."Matt Ryan had a huge game for the Falcons, completing 31 of 41 for 354 yards and three touchdowns. Winston, in his first start of the season, was 30 of 41 for 395 yards and four touchdowns, but the two picks marred his performance.Some issues that emerged from the Falcons victory over Tampa Bay:OFFENSIVE DEFENSESThese teams came in into the game ranked at the bottom of the league in points allowed.Neither gave much indication that they've addressed their defensive shortcomings.The Falcons surrendered more than 500 yards for the second time this season. The Bucs were torched for touchdowns on Atlanta's first three possessions, then gave up two more scoring drives in the final quarter, which is sure to keep the heat on defensive coordinator Mike Smith.HOBBLED KICKERMatt Bryant looked like he might be in for an extended recuperation period after making a crucial 57-yard field goal with 1:10 remaining.The 43-year-old immediately clutched the back of his right leg, limped slowly off the field and headed straight to the locker room.While it wasn't immediately known how seriously he was injured, Atlanta may at the very least need to bring in a second kicker this week in case Bryant can't go in next Monday night's game against the New York Giants.After that, the Falcons have a bye week, which would give Bryant extra time to recover.KAZEE GETS COMFORTABLEKazee is settling in as a starter in the Falcons' injury plagued secondary.The second-year safety has picked off passes in three straight games , the first Atlanta player to accomplish that feat since Kemal Ishmael in 2014.Atlanta lost its top two safeties 鈥?Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen 鈥?to season-ending injuries.POOLE'S HITPoole could be a little lighter in the wallet after delivering a big hit on Winston late in the first half.As Winston glided toward the sideline at the end of a 5-yard run, Poole sent the quarterback flying with a shot to the chest. Tampa Bay center Ryan Jensen went after Poole, leading to some minor scuffling before order was restored.No penalty was called for the hit http://www.titanscheapshops.com/cheap-au...rpe-jersey , but the replay showed Poole lowered his helmet before striking Winston's helmet. That could lead to a fine from the NFL when it reviews the play.LOSING STREAKWhile the Falcons halted their three-game losing streak, Tampa Bay has now lost three in a row after a 2-0 start.Winston said it's too early to panic."Yes, it was a tough loss in the division, but we're still in a good spot," the quarterback said.

  The 2019 NFL Pro Bowl is today.
Posted by: laiyongcai92 - 02-21-2019, 01:50 PM - Forum: General News - No Replies

It’s the NFC versus the AFC. Who cares?More people than you think Youth Derek Barnett Jersey , sadly. According to ESPN, last year’s Pro Bowl drew an average audience of 8.6 million viewers. I don’t know why you’d find yourself watching such a meaningless game but here’s a thread for you if you wish to discuss.Note that Lane Johnson and Malcolm Jenkins are the only two Philadelphia Eagles players playing in today’s game. They made the Pro Bowl as alternates. The Eagles’ original Pro Bowl selections were Fletcher Cox, Zach Ertz, and Brandon Brooks but none of them will play today. Cox and Ertz opted out while Brooks is recovering from an Achilles injury he suffered earlier this month.Players from today’s winning team will receive a $67,000 bonus. The losing players, meanwhile, will each receive $34 Color Rush Destiny Vaeao Jersey ,000.2019 Pro Bowl Time, TV, and streaming infoTime: 3:00 p.m. ETLocation: Camping World Stadium | Orlando, FloridaTV: ESPNStreaming: WatchESPN UPDATE #2: He played through injury in the third quarter, but Fletcher Cox made his way into the locker room early in the fourth quarter, and for a real gut-punch, Jason Peters is also questionable to return with a back injury. So you know Color Rush Corey Graham Jersey , things aren’t getting much better for the Eagles at the moment.UPDATE: After being noticeably absent for much of the second quarter, Fletcher Cox was able to return just before halftime — and drew a holding penalty on his first play back, like a boss. And despite being looked at earlier in the quarter, Brandon Graham was able to stay on the field. So things could get a little better for the defensive line when they’re back from halftime.The second quarter has not been nearly as friendly for the Eagles, and things got worse after Nick Foles threw a pass that was intercepted by Saints’ Marshon Lattimore. First, you had Rasul Douglas getting carted off the field with an ankle injury.And then, on what should have been a three-and-out http://www.authenticsphiladelphiaeagles....eod-jersey , the Saints moved the sticks thanks to a fake punt, which also resulted in Fletcher Cox going down. He was able to leave the field under his own power, and could maybe return.As if things couldn’t actually get worse for the Eagles defense, two plays later, Michael Bennett went down forcing another injury timeout. Bennett, like Cox, was able to leave the field under his own power after what appeared to be a bit of stretching by trainers and was able to return later in the drive. (Phew.)Although that was about the only good news to come out of the first half of the second quarter — the Saints ended up scoring on the drive Youth DeAndre Carter Jersey , and then Brandon Graham was another Eagle being looked at on the sideline. So, a week after the team seemed to escape pretty injury-free, they are back to getting roughed up in New Orleans.

  It’s back to work for the Eagles team
Posted by: laiyongcai92 - 02-21-2019, 01:32 PM - Forum: General News - No Replies

on Wednesday Cheap Alshon Jeffery Jersey , and head coach Doug Pederson spoke to reporters ahead of practice to talk about injury updates, noting Nick Foles is the starter this week — but wouldn’t commit to him for longer than that — and how the team is staying focused ahead of their rematch against the Saints.Here’s what Pederson had to say:Injury UpdatesD.J. Alexander and Sidney Jones are still both day-to-day, but they do hope to try and increase their load this week and see where they’re at.Pederson noted that Wednesday’s practice would be a bit faster than a walk-through, and called it a jog-through.The head coach also said he hasn’t decided if Carson Wentz would be out for Sunday’s game, and it’s a decision he won’t be ready to make until later in the week. Pederson said that it’s a game of “what ifs” at the moment, but he’d agree that there would be benefits to having Wentz as the backup over Nate Sudfeld if he were healthy enough to do that. He noted that Wentz is getting better but for now he’s still resting and won’t be practicing until they get the okay from the doctors.Wideout Mike Wallace is doing well and he’s another one who should be doing more this week, but he’s fought his way back and is excited about possibly being ready for Sunday.On the New Orleans rematchPederson echoed the same sentiments as Monday, when talking about their last game against the Saints. He said in this business you’ve got to have a short memory, and they will look back at the film from an Xs and Os standpoint and look at some personnel things, but they aren’t dwelling too much on that loss.When looking at the Xs and Os from that game Brandon Brooks Jersey , however, he said there are definitely things they can learn, at least from the first half, and there were a couple of nice things schematically that they did to review. He said they just weren’t consistent enough on either side of the ball.He went on to say that they don’t just focus on that game either, because as he noted on Monday, the Eagles are a different team and the Saints are different too after seven weeks.Pederson said that being in the divisional round of the playoffs is fuel enough for the guys, and being one of only four NFC teams left serves as enough motivation. He later said that he doesn’t think that they ran up the score, and he wasn’t upset by it, other than the fact that they got that far behind.He was asked about Malcolm Jenkins comments following that loss about the team’s demeanor, and Pederson said once it started snowballing Darren Sproles Jersey , they just wanted to try and minimize what was happening and get out of there. But that’s not limited to that one game, and it served as a turning point for the team.Pederson went on to explain that he’s never questioned his team’s effort this season, and the guys have consistently played hard, and they played hard in that game, they just didn’t execute enough.From an execution standpoint in Sunday’s playoff game, Pederson said they have to execute on first downs on offense and go three-and-out defensively as best they can, in order to prevent things from snowballing again. He pointed out though that those are things they’ve improved on down the stretch, and those have been the focal point every week regardless of opponent.He talked about how the execution over the last month or so has gotten better, but not because of any changes they’ve made gameplan-wise. Pederson also said it isn’t so much what Nick Foles is doing better or different than Wentz, but that there were a lot of moving pieces on the offensive line and with the running backs Jason Kelce Jersey , and they’re just finding a groove and executing better at this point of the season.On the defense’s improvementPederson talked about how the defense has been coming out to a much faster start than earlier in the season and gave all the credit to Jim Schwartz and the defensive staff. He also noted that the guys are starting to play much better together. He said that young guys are stepping up and playing a little bit faster and confidence, as is to be expected once they better understand what their roles are.On the current state of the SaintsPederson noted that they are still a very aggressive defensive team, and they’re seeing that on film with guys flying around. Offensively, they still have the same structure, where everything runs through Drew Brees. He talked about how they are a talented group, and head coach Sean Payton does a good job of mixing things up and presenting different looks each week for different teams. Pederson also pointed out that they’re coming off quite a bit of rest with the Wild Card bye, and so they’ll be ready and probably have something completely different for the Eagles on Sunday.On their 3rd and 4th down successPederson said that the team is doing much better on first and second downs which helps them be more effective in third and fourth down situations. For what Nick Foles specifically brings to those situations, the head coach repeated the oft-used example of Foles being a point guard and liking to spread the ball around to his offensive weapons. He also noted that Foles manages those situations well.On getting back to the playoffsPederson said that he told his team way back at the beginning of 2018 that they should expect to play into January, and it doesn’t matter how they get into the playoffs, but the expectation is to be playing in the postseason. The head coach said they aren’t just satisfied with getting in Cheap DeAndre Carter Jersey , and now they’re inching closer to the big game. He credits the players and coaches for sticking through some of the tough moments and losses from the season to be where they are, but they’ve just tried to focus and do their best each and every day. The 2019 NFL offseason has begun for the Philadelphia Eagles, which means Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson will spend the next couple of weeks evaluating the 2018 roster. It’s time to start figuring out what this team needs to do to get back to the Super Bowl. Today we’ll continue this roster outlook series by looking at the offensive guard position.THE PLAYERSBRANDON BROOKSRegular season stats: 1087 snaps, 16 starts, 7th out of 88 guards graded by PFF, 1 sack allowed, 2 hits allowed, 10 hurries allowed, 4 penaltiesPlayoff stats: 81 snaps, 2 starts Womens Ronald Darby Jersey , 18th out of 24 guards graded by PFF, 0 sacks allowed, 0 hits allowed, 1 hurry allowed, 0 penaltiesReview: Just another season of excellence from Brooks, who earned Pro Bowl honors for the second year in a row. It sucks that his season ended with an Achilles injury in New Orleans. The run game clearly struggled after he was carted off.Outlook: Brooks said his recovery timeline is projected to be six-to-eight months. It’s possible he could be ready for Week 1 of the 2019 season but we don’t know that for sure just yet. Hopefully he won’t have to miss too many games, if any.

  Joyce Manor came out with a new album
Posted by: laiyongcai92 - 02-21-2019, 12:51 PM - Forum: General News - No Replies

last week Womens Nick Martin Jersey , or maybe it was two weeks ago, I don’t know. I found their first album on Punknews.com that has showed me so many great albums. They do have one the best end of year top ten lists on the internet. It was a constant clatter and raucous rampage of two minutes songs. Their next album was strange, but it made me feel violent all of the time. Their album after that, Never Hungover Again, is one of the scars on my heart and is one of my favorites of all-time. Whenever it came out I didn’t like it right away, but it, like the ones other their first one, took some time for me to fall in love with. This album also cracks me up. When it first came out I thought it was about being so wild and in the moment that it was impossible to be hungover Youth Christian Covington Jersey , projecting myself across their songs, but then last year happened and I realized the album was a reflection on the end of youth and the fact that, no, they will never stay up all night and be hungover again. Their next album was super strange but not in a literal way. It just does and will forever make me feel strange and make me ask people how do they feel about Kanye West because I think he’s great I think he’s the best. And their newest album is a 22 minute post-punk, adult punk, thing that’s super pretty that just makes me think of the kangaroo with boxing gloves in Tekken 2. Anyways, that’s all I got. Check it out if you want to. The floor is yours to talk about whether it’s Texans-related or not. Just remember the standard commenting rules apply.Brian Cushing Talks PED Suspensions, Concussions Authentic DeAndre Hopkins Jersey , Life, And More With Arian Foster Former Houston Texans linebacker, leader, and current free agent Brian Cushing recently appeared on the excellent “Now What?” podcast hosted by Arian Foster.Foster and Cushing apparently were good friends during their time together in Houston, and Arian wanted to peel the veneer back on Cushing’s Lattimer persona, which is apparently a bit of an act.Cushing discusses his PED suspensions, what it’s like to be free agent, his rookie season Womens Whitney Mercilus Jersey , his thoughts on Arian as a rookie, nutrition/fitness, and the pair have what I thought was a very interesting conversation about concussions... and much more, of course.If you’re a longtime Texans fan, this one is worth your time, especially if you’ve enjoyed Arian’s previous hits with current and former Texans like DeAndre Hopkins, Andre Johnson, and Duane Brown.What other current or former Texans would you like to hear make an appearance on “Now What?”If I had to pick one guy Womens Zach Cunningham Jersey , I’d love to hear Arian try to get Ed Reed to speak honestly about his time in Houston.I also think Matt Schaub would be interesting because Arian isn’t afraid to broach the difficult subjects, and if Schaub’s honest, I’m sure he’d have some choice things to say about the way he was treated on his way out of town.

in the NFL regular season http://www.thetexansfootballauthentic.co...-authentic , the playoff picture is getting clearer. However, there are still a lot of questions to be answered as the season winds down.This week, the AFC #1 seed Kansas City Chiefs (11-2) take on the AFC #5 seed Los Angeles Chargers (10-3) on Thursday Night Football. Regardless of the outcome, the Chiefs will remain the top seed in the AFC, as they hold the tiebreaker over the Chargers, though a loss would certainly tighten that cushion.A Chiefs win would clinch not only a division title for the Chiefs, but also a first-round bye. The Chiefs can clinch home-field advantage and the #1 seed throughout the AFC playoffs if the Patriots lose to the Steelers on Sunday.The Chargers can also clinch a playoff berth with any of the following scenarios:1)LAC win or tie OR2)MIA loss or tie + PIT loss OR3)MIA loss or tie + BAL loss or tie OR4)MIA loss or tie + IND loss or tie + TEN loss or tie OR5)PIT loss + IND loss or tie + TEN loss or tie OR6)BAL loss or tie + IND loss or tie + TEN loss or tie鈥婣 win would also give Los Angeles two playoff teams for the first time since 1985.The AFC #2 seed New England Patriots (10-4) head to Pittsburgh to take on the AFC #4 seed Pittsburgh Steelers (7-5-1), with the Steelers hanging on to their playoff hopes after losing three straight games in heartbreaking fashion. Pittsburgh has dropped two games to teams outside of the playoff picture (Broncos and Raiders).They also collapsed by giving up a two-score lead to the Chargers at home a couple of weeks ago.Now Youth Bruce Ellington Jersey , to keep their playoff hopes alive, the Steelers must face Super Bowl contenders in the Patriots and Saints over the next two weeks with only a half-game lead over the Ravens. A loss to the Pats could relinquish control of Pittsburgh’s destiny if the Ravens beat the Buccaneers.New England could have clinched the AFC East for the tenth consecutive season last Sunday, but a deflating loss to the Dolphins pushed their potential clincher to this upcoming Sunday. The Patriots can win the AFC East with a win over the Steelers and a Dolphins loss to the Vikings.As BRBers know, the AFC #3 seed Houston Texans (9-4) had their nine-game winning streak come to an end last Sunday with a loss to the Colts. Luckily for Houston, the team maintains a two-game lead in the AFC South over the Titans and Colts. The Texans can clinch the AFC South this week with a win over the Jets on Saturday and losses from the Titans and Colts.Now, this is when things get messy...Four teams currently sit at 7-6 — Baltimore, Indianapolis, Miami http://www.thetexansfootballauthentic.co...-authentic , and Tennessee. With only one wild card spot for the four of them to fight over, since the runner-up in the AFC West will undoubtedly snag one of the at-large berths, things could get intense.This weekend’s games:TB @ BALDAL @ INDMIA @ MINTEN @ NYGThe Ravens are the team in control of their own destiny as they currently hold the sixth seed in the AFC. However, the team must still go to LA to face the Chargers in Week 16 in what could play a huge role in the final accounting of AFC playoff teams. Baltimore is also in striking distance of the division crown, with Pittsburgh’s lead over them at a half-game and the Steelers having the most difficult schedule remaining. If the Dolphins can get past the Vikings this week, they will close their regular season down with two teams they should beat who are heading for the couch this offseason in the Jaguars and Bills. That could put Miami in prime position to nab the second wild card.Tennessee and Indianapolis play each other in Week 17; that could ultimately be a game that puts one in the postseason and sends the other home.The Denver Broncos (6-7) currently hold the AFC’s tenth seed, but they’re just a game back of the sixth seed. Their loss on Sunday to the San Francisco 49ers really hurt their playoff chances. However, Denver will still have a chance to get the playoffsif they can get to 9-7. That quest starts on Saturday night when the Broncos face the Browns.With Houston likely heading for the third seed behind Kansas City and New England Youth Kareem Jackson Jersey , the race for the sixth seed in the AFC should be something Texans fans should keep their eye on.Remember—if the Texans do earn the third seed, they’d host the sixth seed/second wild card team on that first weekend in January at NRG Stadium. The second quarter of the Texans’ sixteenth game of the season has arrived, and you can talk about what you’re seeing below.NOTE: Please do not post any images, videos, GIFs, or non-text comments in any of BRB’s live game threads.

Allen Hurns Jersey . Corey Lockes goal at 9:51 of the third period broke a 3-3 deadlock for the Heat (43-25-8) while Markus Granlund added a pair of goals in the first period.

"It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont.KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Chiefs coach Andy Reid could have quite the pleasant problem come Monday night.Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles is expected to return to the field after missing last weeks win in Miami with a high ankle sprain. And that means Reid will have to figure out how to distribute touches against New England around a very crowded offensive backfield.Knile Davis ran for 132 yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins. Throw in Joe McKnights play, which included six catches for 64 yards and two scores, and a few touches for Cyrus Gray and suddenly the Chiefs have an abundance of talented runners just waiting to tote the ball.Even running back-turned-wide receiver DeAnthony Thomas finally could be available against the Patriots. The rookie has missed the first three games of the season with a hamstring injury.Everybody is getting a chance, Reid said. Theyre playing their hearts out, making sure they get everything down. Im proud of the guys the way theyre filling in and doing their job.Still, none of the other options at running back offers what Charles can provide.Hes the biggest big-play threat on the roster, the owner of the two longest touchdown runs in Chiefs history. He has more than 1,000 carries, fifth-most in franchise history. He has 161 carries of at least 10 yards, trailing only Larry Johnson. And he has the three biggest single-game outings in franchise history, each of them going for at least 226 yards.Davis has run for 456 yards in his entire career. McKnight spent last year out of football entirely. Gray has only had 24 carries over parts of three seasons.Jamaal is our running back, McKnight said simply, and we just have to stay ready.Having so many options at least takes some of the pressure of Charles to quickly get back on the field. He tried to play last week against the Dolphins, even taking part in some of the pre-game stretching, only to decide that he wasnt healthy enough to play in thhe game. Dallas Cowboys Jerseys. Even if he can play, theres a good chance that the Chiefs will limit the amount of touches that he gets, splitting snaps and carries with Davis and the rest of their running backs.That creates a different set of problems for the Patriots, too.Charles is quick, elusive and a threat to catch the ball out of the backfield. Davis is a big, physical running back who prefers to chip away at defences between the tackles.Theyre different, but theyre both very good, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. They both can hit the home run ball. Theyve both got great long speed a€” they have that in common. But their styles are a little different. But theyre both very dangerous. Strong guys, strong runners.Patriots defensive co-ordinator Matt Patricia said that Charles and Davis are used in similar ways, but their unique skillsets tend to create vastly different results.Obviously, Charles is quite a dynamic and explosive player, but they have really got quite a few guys at the position now, with Knile Davis coming on and having a tremendous game, Patricia said. All the way to Joe McKnight, who you will see on field also, who is a very explosive player and a dynamic guy who that can make a lot of things happen very quickly.In other words, an injury to Charles may not be enough to keep Reid up all night. But it might just be enough to keep Belichick, Patricia and the Patriots staff from getting some rest.They certainly have some very dangerous weapons in the backfield that they can take advantage of, Patricia said, whether to match up in the passing game or in the running game, and exploit pretty quickly.Notes: Pro Bowl S Eric Berry (high ankle sprain) did not practice Thursday. ... DE Mike Catapano was officially placed on IR this week. Catapano has been out since training camp with what Reid would only describe as a mysterious illness.___Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Wholesale Hoodies NFL Shirts Outlet Jerseys NFL Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
