The Senior Bowl wrapped up practice on Thursday

Womens Dante Pettis Jersey , and we’re back with one last round of practice recap links. Given the importance of the Senior Bowl and the fact that all of draft media is on hand for it, it makes sense to have a separate set of links for it. You can also check out the Senior Bowl using our SB Nation hub. This includes recaps and other insights from our NFL blogs across the network, so there’s a wealth of information there.Before we get into the links, Friday morning brought the annual announcement of the practice players of the week. Everybody is looking to boost their draft stock, but these are the players at each position who had what organizers view as the best week of practice on offense and defense. USC offensive tackle Chuma Edoga was named the top overall practice player of the week.QB: Jarrett Stidham, AuburnRB: Dexter Williams Youth Richard Sherman Jersey , Notre DameWR: Deebo Samuel, South CarolinaTE: Foster Moreau, LSUOL: Garrett Bradbury, N.C. StateDL: Isaiah Buggs, AlabamaLB: Drue Tranquill, Notre DameDB: Darnell Savage Womens Alfred Morris Jersey , MarylandST: Austin Seibert, OklahomaNote: some of these are recaps from Day Two that came in after the second Senior Bowl Nuggets were posted at 6:00 AM PST. They still contained really good information/content so they were added to Friday morning’s nuggets.

I don’t know what’s been going on with the wild card and divisional this year, but those were disappointing. The wild card has a track record of this happening with some division winners holding losing records hosting a game, but the divisionals have everything sorted out and give us some fun football. Maybe I’m just wrong on thinking they weren’t as good as prior years. Sunday’s games are going to be fun to watch.

Nick Bosa. The name is getting more familiar by the day

March 15, 2019 by liny195  

 and may be the person the San Francisco 49ers walk away with at the No. 2 spot in the 2019 NFL draft—and the Ohio State defensive end may be OK with that. There have been horror stories of players trying to stay away from specific teams in the draft. Rare as they may be Cheap Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys , the last thing any 49er fan wants at this point is a highly-touted prospect refusing to play for the team that has interest in them. We may not need to worry about Bosa having reservations with the 49ers. Bosa was on KNBR this week and described going to the 49ers as not being just fine, but a lucky destination. Another point brought up from the interview was Bosa’s injury. After suffering an abdominal injury, he choose not to return to the Buckeyes for the remainder of 2018 and instead start working on getting ready for the draft. Bosa said the injury was, “much more severe than people realize,” and never felt back to his potential or in football shape until a few weeks ago. The 49ers still have a long ways until the draft before they can decide on Bosa, and they have the Arizona Cardinals in front of them at No. 1. The Cardinals are switching to a 3-4 Nick Mullens Jersey , a defense Bosa says he can play in, but he also indicates he’d prefer a 4-3. He could pull an Eli Manning and refuse to play for Arizona. Not the best look, but if he wants to be sure he gets a 4-3, he could always outright refuse to go to the Cardinals. Just a thought... The San Francisco 49ers will have three representatives at the 2019 Pro Bowl, and now it appears two of them will be starting. Kyle Juszczyk was voted the starting fullback, while George Kittle was voted in as a reserve. However Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , Kittle is likely to move into the starting lineup with Tuesday’s report that Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is withdrawing from the game.Ertz was voted the starter, but given the Eagles brief playoff run, it’s not surprising he is withdrawing. He appeared to play the entire game in Sunday’s Divisional Round loss to the New Orleans Saints, but it’s no surprise he is banged up after 18 weeks of football. He might not need any sort of clean-up surgeries, but he at least wants to let his body heal early in the offseason.Kittle had a monster breakout season in 2018, leading the NFL in yards after the catch and setting franchise single season records for receptions and receiving yards by a tight end. Ertz set the NFL single-season tight end receptions record Quarterback Nick Mullens Jersey , but Kittle is the more versatile of the two due to his run-blocking skills. It was no surprise Ertz got voted in over Kittle, but it is entirely fair for Kittle to now get the starting nod.Defensive tackle DeForest Buckner is the 49ers third representative, replacing Fletcher Cox who will skip the game due to injury. Akiem Hicks likely will replace Cox in the starting lineup, but if the Los Angeles Rams get to the Super Bowl, Buckner would potentially move into the starting lineup in his place.

It’s time to begin occasionally checking on the mock drafts

 predicting what could happen in the real 2019 NFL Draft. At this point Authentic Evan Engram Jersey , predictably, quarterback Dwayne Haskins is the consensus choice at No. 6 for the New York Giants.Draft Site — Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio StateTankathon — HaskinsCBS Sports (Wilson) — Jonah Williams, OT, AlabamaOf Williams, Wilson writes:SB Nation (Kadar) — HaskinsKadar writes:Walter Football (Campbell) — HaskinsCampbell writes:Draft Tek — Josh Allen, OLB, KentuckyThe Giants will be really fortunate if Allen falls to No. 6.Draft Network (Sikkema) — Drew Lock Authentic Eli Manning Jersey , QB, MissouriIn this draft, Sikkema has the Jaguars trading to No. 1 to get Haskins and the Giants moving up to No. 3 to get Lock.Sikkema writes:Draft Scout (Rang) — Rashan Gary, DE, MichiganIn this scenario, the Giants pass on Haskins to select a hog mollie for the defense.Rang writes:Draft Wire (Easterling) — Haskins Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis arrived at work bright and early Monday morning to some unexpected fanfare after serving a four-game suspension for testing positive for PEDs.He was greeted by smiling teammates Luke Kuechly and Mike Adams, who stood at the front door to the team's stadium holding it open for him. Coach Ron Rivera wore a new black t-shirt with a blue silhouette of Davis celebrating a big play that read "I'M BACK" during his news conference. Several other coaches and players strolled through the locker room wearing the t-shirt as well in support of Davis.Davis' return, combined with the possible return of tight end Greg Olsen from a broken foot this week and the team's dramatic 33-31 win Sunday over the New York Giants — Graham Gano booted a 63-yard field goal through the uprights with 1 second remaining allowing the Panthers to improve to 3-1 — had the locker room abuzz on Monday."We got our leader back," Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson said of Davis Womens Connor Barwin Jersey , Carolina's all-time leading tackler.Rivera said as long as the 35-year-old Davis is in good football condition, he will start his 147th career regular season game this Sunday against the Washington Redskins.Davis told teammates he's been channeling his energy the past month into working out and getting in the best shape of his life — which naturally led to some good-natured banter in the locker room."Yeah, he swore he had a six-pack, (but) he has about a two-pack," joked cornerback Captain Munnerlyn.Munnerlyn said that Davis, who he views as his older brother, greeted him Monday by grabbing him tightly around the shoulders. He had to remind Davis he'd just played a football game on Sunday and was still sore."I know he has a lot of built-up aggression in him right now," Munnerlyn said with a laugh. "The Washington Redskins can get ready because I know that first week back when somebody touches the ball he's going to want to go full throttle."Rivera said he thought about giving the players a day off on what is known as "victory Monday," but decided against it because he didn't want Davis to have to wait until Wednesday to reunite with his teammates."If he could have Authentic Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , he would have been here at the stadium at 12:01 a.m. (when his suspension was lifted), but unfortunately he would have been here by himself," Rivera said.Along with welcoming him back, it was clear the Panthers were also trying to cheer Davis up. He announced on Twitter last week that his father had died."I think being around the guys will be a good getaway for him," Munnerlyn said.Davis posted a video on his Twitter in April acknowledging he tested positive for an estrogen blocker but said it was completely unintentional and "in no way would I ever do anything to cheat this game." The 2015 Walter Payton Man of the Year award winner said he has been taking the same supplements for the last seven or eight years and never had any issues before.Davis didn't talk to reporters Monday, saying he'd prefer to wait until later in the week as is normally his routine.The Panthers have clearly missed Davis' energy and knack for making big plays. The Carolina defense squandered an 11-point fourth quarter lead on Sunday to Eli Manning and the Giants, only to get bailed out by Gano's field goal."We missed Thomas everywhere, on the practice field, in the locker room www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com ," Panthers defensive coordinator Eric Washington said. "When he's removed from the building you feel the impact, you feel the void. You don't replace Thomas Davis."Rivera called Davis a "special locker room guy."Olsen's potential return is good news for Carolina's offense.He led the team in yards receiving for three straight seasons from 2014-16, but has been plagued by a broken bone in his foot the past two seasons causing him to miss a combined 12 games. He re-broke his foot in the team's Sept. 9 season opener, but is expected to practice fully on Wednesday and could play against the Redskins."As long as (the doctors) are happy with how it is healing, a lot of it will be based on how I feel," Olsen said. "That's where we are right now. ... How I feel will guide what I can and can't do."

The champions got their swagger back.After a pair of tough losses

March 15, 2019 by liny195  

 Authentic Rhett Ellison Jersey , the Philadelphia Eagles rebounded with a dominant performance on the road against a division rival and dismissed talk of a Super Bowl hangover.Carson Wentz and Co. aren't going anywhere. They proved it in a 34-13 victory over the New York Giants on Thursday night. The Eagles (3-3) are still frontrunners in the NFC East, and they're determined to make another long run."Having let a couple games slip through our hands, and this is what I love about the team, the players don't panic," coach Doug Pederson said Friday. "The players are resilient. The players know. Players are smart. You guys are around them. They understand what's going on. They see it. They hear it. They read about it. They see it on television. And then as coaches, we point stuff out."Several of the team's weaknesses were exposed during the first five weeks, especially in consecutive close losses to Tennessee (26-23 in overtime) and Minnesota (23-21). The offensive line had trouble protecting Wentz. The defensive line couldn't get enough pressure on quarterbacks. The secondary gave up a lot of yards passing.But they put it all together against the struggling Giants and showed flashes of the team that dominated the NFC on its way to winning the Super Bowl last season."When I talk about ownership, the guys have to take it upon themselves to make the necessary changes to fix," Pederson said. "Our behavior has to change, right? Our standards have to change just a little bit. They have to elevate just a little bit. And I can stand up here and talk to the team until I'm blue in the face, but until they realize it, until they take ownership of it, until they sort of embrace it, it probably won't change."And what I saw the last couple of weeks is they're saying and doing the right things. They're showing up to practice every day. They're not complaining about a short week. They're not making excuses for injury. And that's what our culture has established. That's what a veteran sort of led team can establish Authentic Kerry Wynn Jersey , and they've embraced that, and they've risen to the challenge, and I think they'd had enough, and quite honestly, they rose to the occasion last night and played well in all three phases."Now the Eagles have a few extra days of rest to prepare for a home game against Carolina in Week 7. It'll give players more time to heal from injuries.Nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters left the game with a biceps injury. Pederson said the medical staff is still evaluating the extent of his injury but the early indication is positive.Cornerback Sidney Jones is week-to-week after he sustained a hamstring injury.Veteran running back Darren Sproles missed his fifth straight because of a hamstring injury and he could return next week. The Eagles lost Jay Ajayi for the remainder of the season after he tore an ACL against the Vikings.Wendell Smallwood (18 carries for 51 yards) and Corey Clement (11 carries for 43 yards, one touchdown) handled primary running duties. Personnel boss Howie Roseman could make a deal before the October 30 deadline."Both these guys are determined runners. They run hard. They run aggressive. They're really good backs for us," Pederson said. "A lot of confidence in both of those guys, and what they do, very versatile. And it's just two guys that really take their job serious and feel like they have to prove something every single day, and that's what you want out of your players, that they're out there proving themselves over and over because it just makes them better and it makes us better as an offense. I've been real encouraged by both those guys." I’m not looking forward to spending five hours in the car on Tuesday, but I am looking forward to getting into the Giants’ locker room and gauging the temperature of the players in the room.It’s been a tumultuous few days for the Giants. The Odell Beckham Jr. melodrama. A difficult loss that dropped them to 1-4, followed by an uncharacteristically angry press conference from coach Pat Shurmur. The jettisoning of former first-round pick Ereck Flowers. The specter of a short week and a Thursday Night Football encounter with the rival Philadelphia Eagles.What kind of mood is this team in? Are they ready to pack it in, knowing their fate for 2018 is sealed? That seemed to be the case when they fell to 0-3 a year ago on a 61-yard field goal by Eagles’ rookie kicker Jake Elliott.Are they ready to fight? Do they still believe they have something to play for this season? Are they itching to build off Sunday Authentic Alec Ogletree Jersey , when they played perhaps their most inspired game of the season in a losing effort?I wrote Sunday night that I believe this Giants team has a better chance of digging itself out of its current plight than last year’s team did. I said the same thing on Monday’s ‘Locked on Giants’ podcast.Tuesday, and whatever happens on Thursday against the Eagles, will tell us a lot.The NFC East is still there for the takingThat’s the amazing part. Even with just one victory in five games, the Giants still have a chance in the NFC East. The New Orleans Saints’ 43-19 beat down of the Washington Redskins Monday means every team in the division lost in Week 5 and no team has more than two victories. Here are your NFC East standings:1 - Washington Redskins (2-2)2 - Dallas Cowboys (2-3)3 - Philadelphia Eagles (2-3)4 - New York Giants (1-4)The Eagles are the defending Super Bowl champs. Even with quarterback Carson Wentz back from last season’s knee injury, though, they haven’t looked like it yet. Philly is averaging 20.6 points per game, less than the Giants (20.8), and just lost running back Jay Ajayi for the season with a knee injury.The Cowboys don’t really look like a good team and now coach Jason Garrett is being questioned by owner Jerry Jones. The Redskins? Hard to believe in them after what we saw Monday night.If the Giants can win Thursday night against the Eagles, they put themselves right in the middle of the race. Wrapping up the Odell dramaJust like people are dug in on Eli Manning, so are they dug in on Beckham. The arguing rages on and on, as we saw with the reactions to his ESPN interview, and no minds get changed. At the risk of stirring this whole hornet’s nest up again, I want to clarify something. I’m getting crucified as an Odell hater, and if that’s what you believe that’s not going to change. It isn’t Authentic Nate Solder Jersey , however, true. I just don’t always agree with his actions.When it comes to his interview with Josina Anderson, Beckham said a lot of things about heart and energy and the need to be more aggressive and imaginative on offense that rang true. Good for him. Saying that losing wasn’t OK and that the Giants, with the talent they have, needed to be better on offense is fine and probably needed to be said. I just thought it was ill-advised to make his remarks in a silly setting with the rapper L’il Wayne there nodding along in agreement. I will also agree with Peter King that Beckham went too far by not supporting his quarterback and by not shutting Anderson down when she asked if he was unhappy in New York just weeks after the Giants made him the game’s highest-paid wide receiver.Finito. Done. That’s all I’ve got on that topic.Sunday’s version was the Eli the Giants needEli Manning threw two interceptions on Sunday after having thrown only one in the first four games. He compiled his lowest completion percentage of the season. His passer rating was his second-lowest of the season.And I will take that version of Manning every single week for the next 11 games. That was the Kevin Gilbride-era Manning. He pushed the ball down the field, averaging 10.7 Intended Air Yards per throw (third among Week 5 quarterbacks per Next Gen Stats) and was seventh among QBs in Aggressiveness Percentage.Ten of Manning’s 36 throws were at least 15 yards down the field and the Giants had six completions of 20 yards or more. Interceptions or not, this was Manning’s best game of the season. He made mistakes, getting fooled by the Panthers on his first interception and just plain throwing a bad ball on the second. But, he kept firing. Kept attacking. Made plays at the end when they mattered, and had the Giants in a position to win the game with a minute left. I will take that over “Checkdown Eli” every week, even with the interceptions.About those penaltiesIf this is a penalty on Landon Collins then you simply are not allowed to try to play defense any longer in the NFL.Collins is diving for the ball and gets his hands on it. He’s not even turned toward Carolina’s Devin Funchess when contact occurs, so how can he be targeting something he’s not even looking at? If anything, Collins is the defenseless receiver here who gets hit by Funchess. You might argue that the penalty could have been on Michael Thomas (31), but he is also clearly leading with his hands and trying to avoid an infraction. There is helmet-to-helmet contact with all three players Color Rush Kareem Martin Jersey , but it’s all incidental. It’s all football. There is zero intent and absolutely nothing any of the players involved could have done differently. Other than just let Funchess catch the ball.In chatting with Chris about this, I think he’s absolutely right. Whether they slow the game down or not, the helmet-to-helmet calls and the roughing the passer penalties (which are way out of control, in case you hadn’t noticed) should be quickly and automatically reviewed. If the league doesn’t want to automatically review these plays, how about adding one “penalty challenge” for each team to give coaches the option of asking for review on a critical play like that one?I honestly don’t blame the on-field officials for what is happening. Yes, they are the ones throwing the flags. They are, however, being asked to subjectively judge intent and far too many incredibly hard to parse minute details in real time with athletes moving at incredible rates of speed. They are being asked to do too much. I also understand the anger about the Christian McCaffrey first down call. This tweet appears to clearly show that McCaffrey, with the ball in his left arm, never gets the ball to the line to gain.I’m also not buying this, from the league:It would have been interesting to see the Panthers try to run the field-goal team on and get that kick off with the clock running down. The distance wouldn’t have changed, but the degree of difficulty certainly would have.That said, the Giants shouldn’t blame this loss on the officials. Beckham muffed a punt that cost them a touchdown and dropped a fourth-down pass that ended a scoring opportunity. Russell Shepard had a drop and a penalty that ended a drive. The Giants turned a Carolina fourth-and-8 at the Giants’ 41-yard line into a Panthers’ first down at the 16 with THREE penalties. Manning threw two picks. They couldn’t run block. Or tackle. The officials made mistakes. So, however Authentic Riley Dixon Jersey , did the Giants.Adieu, Ereck FlowersOffensive tackle Ereck Flowers is in his final hours as a member of the Giants. The Giants will cut Flowers today if they aren’t’ able to trade him by 4 p.m. ET.The NFL Trade Deadline isn’t for another three weeks (Oct. 30), but the Giants have obviously decided to cut their losses — financial and otherwise — and move on.The whole Flowers saga in New York has been unfortunate. Maybe things would have been better for him if he hadn’t been forced to play left tackle immediately as a rookie due to the injury to Will Beatty. Then again, maybe not.Flowers’ personality, barely speaking to media, never seemed to fit in the big city. In four years it looked like the only friend he ever had in the locker room was ex-Giant Bobby Hart, and that didn’t end well. At least when media is around, other players seem to hardly ever speak to Flowers. Having gone through three position coaches and a position switch you have to believe at this point his lack of improvement over the years has more to do with him than the quality of coaching he has received.Missing on a pick in the top 10 of the draft is a huge setback for the franchise When they selected him ninth overall in 2015 he was looked at as the potential cornerstone of the offensive line for a decade. Now, he becomes little more than a symbol of the failure to get that critical position group right for the past several seasons. A failure the current regime is still paying for, and trying to correct.[E-mail Ed at bigblueview@gmail.com or via the Big Blue View Contact Page | Follow Big Blue View on Twitter | ‘Like’ Big Blue View on Facebook | Follow Big Blue View on Instagram]

Redskins at the Bye - Studs and Duds

March 15, 2019 by liny195  

 The bye week gives Redskins fans little to talk about http://www.redskinsfootballauthentics.com/jordan-reed-jersey-authentic , as the team can’t even hold practices during the off-week. The bye comes a bit early this year, but make no mistake about it, the Redskins needed the week off to get healthy and focused on a remaining schedule that is anything but a cake-walk. This is not your normal weekly Studs and Duds, but instead, a compilation from the first three games. Studs:Adrian Peterson - The 33 year old back has found new life in DC, carrying the ball 56 times, for 236 yards and three touchdowns over three games. He is averaging 4.2 yards per carry, and has even contributed in the passing game, collecting 5 receptions for 100 yards. Jordan Reed - Reed, who entered the season healthy, has caught 14 passes for 168 yards and a touchdown, but we knew a healthy Reed was capable of those numbers. What has stood out is his improved blocking in the run game. Chase Roullier - Over the first three games, Roullier has been our most consistent offensive linemen (yes, even better on a whole than Trent Williams and Brandon Scherff - taking all aspects of O-line play into account). The amazing part is that he kicked over to left guard last game, and didn’t miss a beat. He has looked excellent when asked to pull, both at the point of attack and in space. The second year interior lineman will need to stay consistent as the season progresses, but overall, he’s off to a great start. Jonathan Allen - Through three games http://www.redskinsfootballauthentics.com/josh-norman-jersey-authentic , Allen has posted 10 tackles and two sacks. He’s been a menace to opposing quarterbacks producing multiple hurries and quarterback hits. DaRon Payne - The rookie has been just as disruptive as his Alabama teammate, collecting 10 tackles of his own and adding a sack. His presence and relentless motor have been felt all game by opposing offenses. Matt Ioannidis - Although Ioannidis has not played as many snaps as his two counterparts, his presence has been felt none-the-less. He leads the team in sacks with three, and also has a fumble recovery. He looks completely un-blockable at times. D.J. Swearinger - Swearinger has not been perfect in coverage, but he has recorded a team leading two interceptions, and is tied for the team lead with four passes defended. He has 11 solo tackles and is the vocal leader of the secondary, and an enforcer on the back end of a solid defense. Duds:Josh Doctson - Many thought the third-year pro would be in store for a breakout season, but that is off to an incredibly slow start. Through three games, he’s been targeted just 13 times, and has hauled in a meager five catches for 48 yards. As usual, he’s had trouble securing the football whether open or covered, and can’t seem to shake tight coverage to get himself open. If there is any silver lining to his start, it’s that all five of his receptions went for first downs. Ryan Kerrigan - It’s hard to believe Kerrigan is on this list, but he’s been a complete non-factor through the first three game, collecting just two tackles...that is it! Josh Norman - Norman has collected 15 tackles and a fumble recovery on the young season, but he’s yet to record a pass defended, and he’s been burnt in coverage WAY too often for a guy considered to be the team’s best defensive back. Zach Brown - Brown has not looked the same as he did last year, where he was playing sideline-to-sideline http://www.redskinsfootballauthentics.com/trent-williams-jersey-authentic , and collecting tackles all over the field. Maybe it’s just a slow start for the veteran linebacker who missed most of the team’s OTA,and was not on the field for many preseason snaps. Let us know if you agree or disagree, and who else you may like to add, in the comments section. With Day 2 of the Senior Bowl closed to media, I wanted to share some thoughts on Senior Bowl prospects the Redskins should consider this year. Check out my full break down on the North Team and South Team’s practice reports for interest in some other prospects. Quarterbacks:Overall this is a good group of quarterbacks down here in Mobile this week. There are two potential first round picks in Drew Lock and Daniel Jones. Behind them there is a solid next tier of Will Grier, Ryan Finley, Jarrett Stidham and high upside project Tyree Jackson, who could all be 2nd-4th round picks. Of the top two options I have Lock ahead of Jones (though plenty of others have the reverse) as I think he has a higher upside. Lock throws with more anticipation and has the bigger arm. Both quarterbacks have functioning mobility, but Jones is probably more athletic and comes from a more “pro friendly” system. Neither quarterback has put up overall incredible numbers in college, but Lock did play versus a tougher SEC schedule which helps his case. Overall neither of these QBs are a perfect prospect and they would likely both fall behind many of the top quarterbacks we’ve seen taken in recent years. I think Lock has the higher upside with his arm talent, and would be the better option if the Redskins go for a QB in the first round.As for the next tier of guys I do think Grier and Finley both could potentially be starters down the road in the NFL, but neither are high upside guys. What is positive with them is they have better floors, and could add to the QB depth long term even if they aren’t a true franchise starter. Stidham and Jackson probably have more upside, but are further away. Wide Receivers:Not the deepest of receiver groups here, but there are some interesting names to watch. Andy Isabella and Deebo Samuel are two early round options that could intrigue the Redskins in the 2nd-3rd rd range. Isabella measured in at just under 5’9”, but he shouldn’t be only thought of as a slot receiver (though he likely will play there a lot). He has elite speed and deep ball ability and can play outside some as well. His speed and size compare closer to guys like T.Y. Hilton, Tyreek Hill, Taylor Gabriel http://www.redskinsfootballauthentics.com/ryan-kerrigan-jersey-authentic , Marquise Goodwin, and Brandin Cooks who all have shown ability to play outside as well as dominate inside. While those are some big names to compare the UMass receiver too, he has shown the ability to put up big numbers versus Florida, Mississippi State and Georgia over the last three years. His speed and quickness were well on display at practice and he looks to be a sub 4.40 player at the combine. Deebo Samuel has some of the same skill set, but with a different body type. He can play inside and outside, with ability to challenge deep. He’s dealt with some injuries in college, but was healthy this past year and put up good numbers. He had a strong first day of practice and showed well as a route runner who could make plays once the ball was in his hands.As for some later options the Redskins could consider Keelan Doss as a bigger receiver with deep speed or Hunter Renfrow as another slot option to replace Jamison Crowder. Doss is an intriguing prospect as he has some real vertical speed. He’s not as smooth out of his breaks, but he’s got some upside with his size and speed. Renfrow is a slot only guy, who always finds a way to get open despite being undersized (even relative to the position). I think Trey Quinn offers more upside than Renfrow, but the Redskins might want a true 2nd option if Crowder walks in free agency.EDGE Rushers:Montez Sweat is clearly the top EDGE rusher here on either squad and would be in consideration for the Redskins first round pick. Sweat has length and power combined with solid speed to win on the edge. He can stand-up, but is more ideal of a pass rusher with his hand in the dirt, though that shouldn’t be an issue as the Redskins were in nickel about 70% of the time last year. Sweat really broke out this past year and has a great body type that gives him natural power. He could be a great option to replace Preston Smith and give the Redskins an EDGE rusher to build their defense around going forward as Kerrigan may begin to decline. Outside of Sweat the other most interesting options for the Redskins are Jaylon Ferguson and Oshane Ximines who both could go in the 2nd-4th round range. Both put up massive numbers in college and have good speed/burst off the edge with good long frames. They aren’t as technically sound as some other EDGE rushers in this class, which is why they are more likely day 2 options versus sneaking in Day 1. Both have long term starting upside and as they get more refined have the potential to be 10+ sack/ high pressure guys off the edge. I will look at some other positions later, but wanted to post some thoughts at some key players the Redskins should consider from these rosters. Let me know what you think and if you have any questions as well in the comments! Custom New York Jets Jerseys

Reuben Foster's ex-girlfriend tells ABC's "Good Morning America"

 that he slapped her and pushed her during an incident in Tampa http://www.redskinsfootballauthentics.com/ryan-kerrigan-jersey-authentic , Florida, that led to his arrest for domestic violence.Elissa Ennis said in the interview televised Thursday that Foster abused her three times, most recently last month in Tampa. The 24-year-old Foster was charged with one count of first-degree misdemeanor domestic violence.The San Francisco 49ers released Foster after the incident, and the Washington Redskins claimed the second-year linebacker off waivers. Foster was put on the NFL's Commissioner Exempt list, which means he cannot play or practice.Ennis said when Washington signed Foster she was shocked and thought, "I can't believe somebody picked him up" so soon.A Redskins spokesman declined comment and referred to the team's statement made after claiming Foster that acknowledged the severity of the allegations.Foster changed agents last month. A message sent to his new representative was not immediately returned.A voicemail left for Ennis' attorney http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/morgan-moses-jersey-cheap , Adante Pointer, was not immediately returned. Pointer also took part in the "Good Morning America" interview.The 5 O’Clock Club: Redskins iron man - Ryan Kerrigan The 5 o’clock club is published Wednesday to Saturday during the season, and aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.Ryan Kerrigan career statistics (2011-2017)From 2011 to 2017, Ryan Kerrigan started 112 of a possible 112 games.Add to that his two playoff games in 2012 and 2015 versus the Seahawks and the Packers, and his three regular season starts in 2018 against the Cardinals, Colts and Packers and the Redskins’ 2011 first round pick (16th overall) has 115 consecutive regular season starts — 117 including playoffs.The fact that he’s made it through more than 7 seasons without missing a single opening whistle is pretty astounding.But equally impressive is what he’s done with his time on the field. Kerrigan is not a specialty pass-rusher; he is a stand up outside linebacker in a 3-4 base defense who is frequently called upon to drop into coverage.Despite that http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/mason-foster-jersey-cheap , Ryan Kerrigan has been a model of consistency when it comes to sacking the quarterback.Across 7 full seasons, he’s been credited with 71.5 sacks, or about 10.2 per year. Damn Skippy!And it’s not like he’s got any outliers.His three lowest sack totals were in his first three seasons, when he accounted for 7.5, 8.5 and 8.5 sacks. That would be a career for many players, but Kerrigan simply got better http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/deshazor-everett-jersey-cheap , piling up 47 sacks in the past 4 years (nearly 12 per season!).But wait, there’s more!Twenty two forced fumbles in seven seasons.Let me repeat that... he’s averaging double-digit sacks, and forcing three fumbles per year (and he’s never had a season without at least two forced fumbles).Just in case you thought I was done, I want to stitch together three columns in Ryan Kerrigan’s career statistics for you.Look at “INT”, “IR YDS” and “TD” for a moment. You’ll see the following:2011 1-9-12012 1-28-12017 1-24-1Yep.Three career interceptions — every one a pick-6!!Photo by Patrick McDermott/Getty ImagesSo, let me recap:Kerrigan hasn’t missed a start in his entire 7 year careerHe averages: 10 sacks http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/shawn-lauvao-jersey-cheap , 3 forced fumbles, 3 passes defended, and 39 tackles per seasonand about every other year he grabs a pick-6Thank you Mike Shanahan, wherever you are.Links:Every play by Ryan Kerrigan vs Green BayIs Ryan Kerrigan “elite”?Photo by Rick Stewart/Getty Images Custom New York Jets Jerseys

10 Things I think I thought after the Steelers’ horrible

March 15, 2019 by liny195  

 Week 2 loss to the Chiefs Still no local broadcast of the game where I live http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jesse-james-jersey , so I was back at a wings joint. I won’t mention which one, but it rhymes with Ruffalo Child Sings. Let’s get to it.Watching this game would have been painful and unpleasant had I not had my beloved wife with me. Before their fourth touchdown was taken off the board, it looked like we would be down 28-0 in the first quarter, which must be a first in Steeler history, if not NFL history. Extrapolated out that would have been a 112-0 game.Keith Butler must be the Bob Dole of defensive coordinators. Dole was made the Republican presidential nominee in 1996 because of his charisma. No, that’s not it. Because of his economic genius. No, that’s not it. Because “it was his turn.” Yeah, that was it. Maybe cutting a Hall of Fame coordinator for a guy in the wings was a bad idea.It’s one thing to believe your press clippings after a 13-3 season. Altogether another to do so for your first two games. The Steelers Terrell Edmunds Jersey , to riff on Dennis Green, are not who they think they are. Waving press clippings and Vegas odds at your opponent is not a path to victory.I had half a mind to stop my piece right here. Three and out, just like our offense in the first quarter.“Miscommunication” cannot be the problem with the defense because the whole world is reading this message loud and clear- “We stink.”It is not a sin to order a burger at a wings place, especially if the burger is as good as the one I had.The notion that Bell was crying in his soup after week one and dancing in the streets after week two is just silly. The sad truth is he cares as much about James Conner’s performance as he does the other 52 guys on the roster. If he cared one way or the other he would be on the field.You can’t say that Bud Dupree didn’t make his presence known in this game. I noticed him early on, ten yards behind Mahomes as he threw his second, no his third, no, his fourth TD pass- who can remember?- giving him a neighborly wave as he went by.Coaching cliches will not fix what ails us. Coaching Authentic James Conner Jersey , on the other hand, could conceivably do the trick. Time may tell, but Tomlin is not real good with time. Seriously, how do you give the Browns their first half-victory in a year and a half, and then not be preparedfor your next game? I get the danger of panic, but I also get the danger of lacking urgency. When the Titanic first hit the iceberg, calm was needed. When its tallest smokestack went under, it was too late.This week Youth JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey , Monday night on national TV,is a “home” game for me. And I’m grateful my hope will have an extra day to heal. It got banged up pretty bad.Bonus Thought- It takes three things for Ben to throw 60 passes for over 450 yards, none of them good. 1. Weak run game. 2. Being behind, way behind. 3. Having your opponent not only score often, but score quickly. I suspect KC lost time of possession, which is easy to do when you find it so easy to score.NFL Picks and Predictions: Picking the full Week 2 slate against the spread The Pittsburgh Steelers were not the only ones who disappointed in Week 1 after the results of our opening weekend picks against the spread and the totals were tallied. While the first week of the season is always a difficult one to bet on, our selections did little to help steer you in the right direction.Editor Jeff Hartman was an acceptable 9-6 against the spread, but a disappointing 6-9 versus the totals. Meanwhile http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-joe-haden-jersey , although I barely broke even at 8-7 against the spread, a 9-6 record versus the totals was almost respectable. Just like the Steelers, we both aim to do better in Week 2.With just three spreads over a touchdown on Sunday, the bookmakers are clearly expecting a number of close matchups this weekend and there is value to be found with several questionable home teams hosting capable visiting teams. Some relatively high totals in Week 2 offer a number of intriguing options for those who like to take the under too. Selections have been made using the consensus Las Vegas odds from VegasInsider.com as per Friday night and we encourage you to play along with us by adding your picks below.

Cincinnati Bengals’ linebacker Vontaze Burfict has

March 15, 2019 by liny195  

quite the sordid past when it comes to infractions during his NFL career. He has been suspended several times for plays both during Chris Boswell Jersey , and after, the play. The most recent infractions came in the Week 6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers when the league fined Burfict over $100 thousand dollars for elbowing Antonio Brown in the head while defenseless, and going head-to-head on running back James Conner. Steelers fans, and many others, are growing tired of Burfict’s antics and wanted the league to come down hard on the talented, yet troubled, linebacker. Former Cleveland Browns tackle Joe Thomas even suggested a year-long ban for his behavior. The league decided on a hefty fine instead, although fines have done little to alter Burfict’s play on the field Authentic Xavier Grimble Jersey , but they did send a warning with the latest letter notifying Burfict of the loss of money in his weekly check.This per the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:So, to recap, the NFL has told Burfict his repeated behavior won’t be tolerated any longer. Thanks to this latest punishment, Burfict has brought the total amount of money he has lost to fine or suspension to a staggering $4,158,408. His complete list of fines and suspensions so far based on data from Spotrac.com. Losing over $4 million dollars hasn’t deterred Burfict’s behavior, but the league feels this latest fine, and warning Cheap Javon Hargrave Jersey , will certainly do the trick.Albert Einstein once said doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. I couldn’t agree more. Although the Pittsburgh Steelers face the Carolina Panthers every year in the preseason, regular season meetings are quite rare as these teams are interconference opponents. The two sides have only played each other six times dating back to 1996, and after losing their first encounter, the Steelers have not lost to the Panthers since.Boasting a 6-2 record, Carolina has been one of the league’s more impressive teams this season. Behind the strong running of Christian McCaffery and the improved play of Cam Newton, the Panthers have been difficult to stop on offense and they represent a significant challenge for the Steelers on Thursday night. However, with the short week notably favoring the home team, Pittsburgh are well positioned to record their fifth consecutive win of the season in Week 10.As a nationally televised game Jordan Berry Jersey , the broadcast should be available in all regions.Week 10:Game: Carolina Panthers (6-2) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (5-2-1).
