Partant du principe qu' "il vaut mieux établir les règles plutôt que d'être au nombre de ceux qui font le choix de les adopter"*, la France se doit d’être visionnaire lors de la conférence internationale sur le climat qu'elle organise dans notre pays en 2015. Ne faudrait-il pas à cette occasion que l'Europe saisisse la chance qui lui est offerte d'améliorer la santé et le pouvoir d'achat de ses concitoyens sans affecter son économie sur le moyen terme ? Il y a urgence et il n'est peut- être pas trop tard, malgré nos divergences en matière d'énergie, d'engager dès à présent un dialogue avec l'Allemagne pour que ce soit nos deux pays qui amorcent une politique énergétique européenne commune.
Qu´en pensez vous ?

* Une phrase prononcée par le secrétaire général de l'OCDE dans un de ses discours

Carlos Hyde on the trading block?

he would likely tell you it has not been the start to his NFL career the fourth-year running back would have liked.,If you were to ask Carlos Hyde

791 yards and 13 touchdowns in three seasons. Injuries have played a part as in 2015,After being taken in the second round by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2014 draft, Hyde has rushed for 1, he played in only seven games while battling ailments., his first as the full-time starter

With a new general manager in John Lynch and new head coach in Kyle Shanahan in place in San Francisco, but there are concerns as to whether it makes sense for him to remain in the Bay Area., there's been some questions as to Hyde's future with the 49ers. The tailback remains with the team in OTAs

According to Grant Cohn of The Press Democrat, Hyde should not remain with the 49ers.,T. J. Watt Jersey, who reported on San Francisco's OTAs last week

he was the only running back who never found a hole to run through. On one stretch play,"Hyde is the slowest and most indecisive running back on the team. I’m not saying he’s bad – he does have quick feet between the tackles,Authentic Cameron Sutton Jersey, he can bounce inside runs to the outside and he plows through defenders. But he doesn’t seem to have the vision to succeed in Kyle Shanahan’s outside-zone running scheme. Tuesday, tried to bounce around the outside even though the linebacker had set the edge and lost three yards. The Niners should trade him to a team that runs the zone read.",James Conner Jersey, he missed a cutback lane

Cohn is not alone. Liz Loza of Yahoo! Sports was recently asked about Cohn's report and responded with the following:

"Injuries aside, when given the starting gig, while playing a supporting role to Frank Gore (who, Hyde has always struggled to live up to his workhorse potential. In his rookie outing, by the way, hasn’t missed a game since landing in Indianapolis and has out-rushed his former protégé for the past two seasons straight) Hyde’s production waned as his touches increased, the Ohio State product averaged over 3.6 YPC in just two out of the seven contests for which he was healthy. In fact, averaging under 3.0 YPC each time he received more than 9 totes. The following year, averaging 5.6 YPC from Weeks 11 – 17. Given the data, it wasn’t until the last third of 2016 that Hyde started to come on, it reasonable to believe that Hyde isn’t adapting quickly.

he closed out the second year of his pro career as the eighteenth most productive fantasy player at the position. I’m not saying Joe Williams is a sure thing,Furthermore, Kyle Shanahan loves himself a rookie running back. Alfred Morris produced top-five fantasy numbers in his freshman campaign. Isaiah Crowell managed top twenty-seven stats (despite starting just four games) during his inaugural outing. And while Tevin Coleman missed most of his rookie season due to injury, but if Hyde can’t get it together Williams will get his shot… and fast.", especially given the 49ers deplorable run-blocking unit

who fielded the same questions,But not everyone is in agreement. Loza's colleague, referred to the aforementioned report as "FAKE NEWS":, Brad Evans

"When the reaper claims my soul, Brandon Jacobs, but Hyde is a superior talent who’s proven effective as a zone runner. He previously excelled as one at Ohio State and recently with his current team under Chip Kelly.,T. J. Watt Jersey,JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey, the tombstone above my grave will read, a man who fought for liberty,Cameron Sutton Jersey,Authentic JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey, justice and the pursuit of Carlos Hyde (and Ryan Mathews,Authentic James Conner Jersey,Joshua Dobbs Jersey, but viewing the above note objectively it’s hard to take it for gospel this early in the game. Of course Williams and Hightower pose serious threats, “Here lies Brad Evans,Authentic Joshua Dobbs Jersey, fine tequila, etc.).” Admittedly he’s a pet player

Getting technical, total evaded tackles (RB7) and breakaway runs (RB8). And he achieved that behind THE worst run-blocking unit in the NFL per Football Outsiders., Shanahan’s zone focuses on an outside gap compared to Kelley’s shotgun-based interior arrangement, but they feature similar core principals – find hole, he ranked inside the position’s top-10 in yards after contact per touch (RB6), who I feel is a decisive downhill runner, cut and sprint upfield. Hyde, will be highly successful once familiarized. His glowing secondary profile supports the notion. Last season

Maybe he had Montezuma’s revenge the day observed. Who the heck knows? What I do know is that Hyde is a very under-appreciated talent thrust into an upside situation who should net at least 65 percent of the opportunity share. The injury imp is his nemesis, RB16). Ignore the above writer’s derision.", but I believe he tallies a top-15 line in 2017 (41.9 ADP

but there are certainly questions. He has to impress a staff that didn't draft him in a system that may not be tailored for him.,Whether Hyde remains in San Francisco longterm is yet to be seen

One thing is certain is that Hyde demonstrated his ability during his time as a Buckeye under Urban Meyer and has shown flashes during his first three season in the NFL. If he can put it together, there is a talented running back there that some team can find a way to use., whether with the 49ers or not

It may just take a change of scenery for that player to shine once again.

Denver Broncos: Could Jeremy Maclin be a possibility?

Could Jeremy Maclin be a possible fit for the Denver Broncos as he tries to find a new home.

Jeremy Maclin was cut by the Kansas City Chief earlier this week. The move cleared $10 million in cap space according to Spotrac and will allow the team to allocate the funds for other positions. Maclin signed a five-year, $55 million deal in 2015 with the Chiefs.

624 yards and 10 touchdowns during his two year tenure with the Chiefs and has 6,Maclin caught 1,Authentic Justin Simmons Jersey,395 yards and 46 touchdowns during the course of his career. He’s a grizzled veteran with efficient hands and smooth route running. His ability to get in and out of his breaks and explode off the line of scrimmage makes him very tough to cover.

who are considered one of the top wide receiver tandems in the league. After Sanders and Thomas,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey, however,The Denver Broncos wide receiver corps is led by Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders,Ziggy Ansah Jersey, the depth chart gets a bit sketchy.

he has only started in two games while catching just 16 receptions for 158 yards and one touchdown. So far,Authentic Marvin Jones Jr Jersey,The Broncos spent a second-round pick on Cody Latimer in the 2014 NFL Draft with the hopes that he would eventually develop into one of the team’s starting wide receivers. Since then, he has been a colossal bust for the team.

Jordan Taylor,Other receivers on the roster are Bennie Fowler, Hunter Sharp and Kalif Raymond. Between all four receivers they have accumulated a combined 668 yards and four touchdowns receiving for the Broncos. Experience is very limited with this group and could be one of the reasons why the team may want to bring in a veteran wide receiver for an evaluation.

he’s still a rookie and is very green compared to a lot of veteran receivers in the league. He could experience an initial learning curve, preventing him to develop into the team’s third wideout,Denver drafted Carlos Henderson an explosive wide receiver from Louisiana Tech to eventually develop into one of the team’s starting wide receivers. He’s very dangerous with ball in open space and he has the potential to eat up yards at will after the catch. Henderson is one of the top candidates on the team to win the third wide receiver spot on the depth chart. However, delaying his ability to breakout during his rookie season.

but he could also be utilized as a slot receiver when needed. When it comes to route running and knowing some of the finer nuances at the wide receiver position,The team also drafted Isaiah McKenzie in the fifth round of this year’s draft. He’s a speedster who could play some snaps out of the slot this season. He was primarily drafted to return kicks and punts,Justin Simmons Jersey,Barry Sanders Jersey, McKenzie has limited experience due to only catching 60 receptions for 823 yards and seven touchdowns during his three-year career at Georgia.

It’s easy to see how an experienced receiver like Maclin could easily help this team. A solid third receiver would add an extra dynamic that could put the offense on a different level. The receiving corps would be almost impossible to cover with Thomas,Authentic Ziggy Ansah Jersey,Authentic Matthew Stafford Jersey, Sanders and Maclin running routes on a routine basis.

Maclin would require a hefty contract that would weigh down some of the team’s cap. Second off,Matthew Stafford Jerseyy, he would need to actually want to sign with the team,Marvin Jones Jr Jersey,Adding another talented receiver like Maclin is easier said than done. First off, because working with inexperience quarterbacks and competing for targets in a low volume passing attack might not be the right situation for him.

this signing would easily work for the Broncos. But in real life, signings like these get real tricky,In Madden, and more than likely never happen. The team doesn’t really need another receiver since they have two solid receivers and a few developmental prospects on the back-end of the roster. But, it’s still very interesting to entertain the idea.

It’s Tampa Bay Lightning day at PHT

The Tampa Bay Lightning was among the hottest teams in the NHL down the stretch of the 2016-17 regular season, but it wasn’t enough to make the playoffs.

The Bolts finished one point out of the final wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. It was a disappointing end to a season of high expectations,adidas Patrick Marleau jersey, after Tampa Bay made it to the Stanley Cup Final in 2015 and the Eastern Conference Final the following year.

Injuries played a part in the Bolts’ struggles.

playing in just 17 games. He had nine goals and 20 points at the time of his injury,Steven Stamkos was just starting to heat up in the middle of November when he suffered a knee injury and underwent surgery. He skated with the club late in the season but ultimately didn’t get into the lineup,adidas Martin Jones jersey, although general manager Steve Yzerman wasn’t willing to use the injury bug as an excuse for his team’s failure to qualify for the playoffs.

The good news? Stamkos expects to be ready for the start of next season.

The Bolts lost Jason Garrison to Vegas in the expansion draft and traded forward Jonathan Drouin to Montreal. They did acquire highly touted prospect defenseman Mikhail Sergachev in that deal with the Habs. They also signed veteran defenseman Dan Girardi and four-time Stanley Cup champion Chris Kunitz, and then secured Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat on long-term deals.

Today at PHT, we will focus on the key storylines impacting the Lightning heading into next season.

Poll: Will the Lightning make the playoffs next season?

The Tampa Bay Lightning missing the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs was one of the more shocking things that happened last season.

Coming into the year, most people expected them to be in the hunt for the Stanley Cup (I actually had them winning it all). It’s easy to see why that didn’t happen. Their depth was tested right from the start of the year and they never seemed to catch a break when it came to injuries.

Tyler Johnson missed 16 games throughout the season, Ryan Callahan was limited to 18 games,Steven Stamkos played in just 17 games because of a knee injury, and last year’s starter Ben Bishop missed a big nine-game segment of games from late December to early January.

the eight games Nikita Kucherov missed, the seven games Ondrej Palat was forced to sit out,That list doesn’t include the nine games Anton Stralman missed,adidas Kris Letang jersey, or the 14 games Brayden Point was sidelined for.

Heading into 2017-18, you have to think that the Bolts will at least be a little healthier than they were last season. Just getting Stamkos back for a reasonable amount of games will make them that much better.

despite dealing with all those injuries,adidas Joe Pavelski jersey,Don’t forget,Authentic Joe Thornton jersey, they still only missed the playoffs by a single point.

Kucherov, and second,There are at least two main reasons why they came close to making the postseason. First,Authentic Martin Jones jersey, Victor Hedman.

Those two players were incredible throughout the season. No matter who was in and out of the lineup, both Kucherov and Hedman never stopped performing at a high level.

there’s no guarantee that a player like Stamkos will be fully healthy next season. He’s suffered a long list over injuries over the last few years and assuming he’ll be able to play all 82 games is a little premature. Over the last four seasons, he’s played 17, 77,On the flip side, 82 and 37 games. That doesn’t include all the games he missed because of a blood clot during the 2016 playoffs.

but how will he handle the pressure of being the number one guy for an entire season. Don’t forget, he’s still just 23 years old. Sure, Peter Budaj is there to help him along the way,Authentic Kris Letang jersey, the goaltending situation is a bit of a question mark as well. Andrei Vasilevskiy has shown that he’s capable of playing well at the NHL level,Authentic Joe Pavelski jersey,Also,Authentic Patrick Marleau jersey,adidas Joe Thornton jersey, but Budaj was an AHL goalie until Jonathan Quick went down early last season with the Kings.

It’s your turn to have your say. Feel free to leave your opinion in the comments section below.

Packers WR Malachi Dupre being evaluated after taking vicious hit

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Malachi Dupre had feeling and movement in all of his extremities after leaving Thursday’s game against Philadelphia on a stretcher in the fourth quarter.

Dupre,Womens Drew Brees Jersey, a rookie seventh-round pick from Louisiana State, absorbed a vicious hit from Eagles safety Tre Sullivan after catching a short pass on the right side of the field. Dupre was leveled as he turned upfield when Sullivan’s helmet appeared to strike his chin and facemask. He lay motionless on his back for several minutes as the medical staff attended to him.

The Packers announced that Dupre had been taken to a local hospital for further evaluation.

"So far,Authentic Alex Anzalone Jersey," coach Mike McCarthy said, "all the information coming back from the testing is positive, but he's still in the hospital and going through a series of tests.

you know it potentially may be a bad situation. I thought our medical staff was phenomenal. I thought they were right on point. He did a good job of communicating what happened once he was able to settle down. That was a very scary moment.","Nerve-wracking. There were moments there of high concern.

The crowd cheered as Dupre was lifted onto the stretcher. He gave a quick thumbs up as he was being wheeled off the field. He made two catches for 16 yards and lost one fumble.

“Man, I just hope he’s all right,Womens Stephon Gilmore Jersey,” cornerback LaDarius Gunter said. “I just hope his family is calm right now. I hope that he’s all right.”

The Packers suffered a slew of injuries in addition to the scary situation surrounding Dupre. Center Don Barclay (ankle), safety Kentrell Brice (finger), cornerback Damarius Randall (concussion) and cornerback Raysean Pringle (evaluated for a concussion) all dropped out of Thursday’s game.

Wentz off to perfect start,Authentic Eli Manning Jersey, but Eagles fall 24-9 to Packers

Quarterback Carson Wentz had a perfect preseason debut for the Philadelphia Eagles under less than ideal conditions against the Green Bay Packers.

The ball was a little slick because of the humidity on Thursday night. Players on both sides were shaking off the rust in their first preseason game of the season.

But Wentz still managed to go 4 for 4 for 56 yards and a score on his first series, eluding a potential sack and burning the Packers on third and fourth downs in Philadelphia's 24-9 loss on Thursday night.

first of all,Authentic Landon Collins Jersey," the second-year quarterback said. "We had a couple sloppy plays,"I wouldn't say perfect, but we stayed on the field."

doing his best impression of elusive Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers,And Wentz stayed out of trouble, who was a healthy scratch.

The Packers' defense might need to keep working on tackling, though they're off to a good start in creating turnovers.

"Lot to learn from there ... I thought the work for us was excellent and we took a step tonight as a football team," coach Mike McCarthy said. "I think all of us agree we've got a lot of work to do."

Philadelphia is looking to improve a pass offense that ranked 24th in the NFL last season.

Free agent addition Alshon Jeffery didn't play on Thursday. Nelson Agholor, didn't have a catch. But Wentz found rookie Mack Hollins, the team's fourth-round draft pick, who is having a good camp,Authentic Adrian Peterson Jersey, for a 38-yard touchdown pass on third-and-13 with 6:33 left in the first quarter after the quarterback eluded rushing linebacker Clay Matthews' grasp.

"I thought his escapability was right on point," Eagles coach Doug Pederson said about the 6-foot-5 Wentz.

Cornerbacks Quinten Rollins and Kevin King each missed tackles as Hollins crossed right-to-left across the field on his way to the end zone. The Packers had problems at the cornerback position last season.

While no defender likes to miss a tackle,Authentic Lawrence Taylor Jersey, players on both teams were getting their first chances to tackle someone in another uniform after two weeks of camp.

"I think this is kind of a normal first night,Womens Eli Manning Jersey," McCarthy said.

The Eagles got off to a nice start against Green Bay's first-string defense, though they did turn the ball over three times in the second quarter with backup quarterback Matt McGloin behind center.

Wentz was done after his opening series,Womens Elite Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, while backup Brett Hundley started at quarterback for Green Bay with Rodgers sitting out. Hundley picked up the pace after a sluggish start as the Packers defense started forcing turnovers.

Hundley pump-faked before finding Jeff Janis in stride down the right side of the end zone for a 20-yard touchdown pass for a 14-6 lead with 8:25 left in the second quarter. The Packers capitalized after cornerback LaDarius Gunter forced tight end Trey Burton to fumble at the Eagles 40.

Hundley finished 8 of 15 for 90 yards before sitting out the second half.

The Packers may have found a new threat in the return game in speedy second-year receiver Trevor Davis, who ran a punt back 68 yards in the second quarter for a touchdown. Davis also had a 26-yard punt return in the third quarter.

"I don't think I won a job or anything like that," Davis said. "I was just happy to help my team win."

the 14th overall pick in the draft out of Tennessee,Eagles: DE Derek Barnett, had two sacks in the first half.

we got the green light tonight, so it was fun to get back out there in a game situation and just play,"We've been practicing and we really couldn't hit the quarterback. So," Barnett said.

the team's second-round draft pick out of Washington,Packers: King,Womens Trey Hendrickson Jersey, backed up his reputation as a physical cornerback with two hard open-field tackles in the second quarter. He was also credited with a forced fumble.

Packers rookie WR Malachi Dupre was taken off on a stretcher after fumbling on a reception following a hard hit to the chest by Eagles safety Tre Sullivan with 14:14 left in the game. The Packers said that Dupre had movement and feeling in his arms and legs.Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, He was taken to a hospital for evaluation,Womens Adrian Peterson Jersey, and McCarthy said initial testing was positive.

CB Damarious Randall left in the first quarter with a concussion after getting blocked by Eagles WR Bryce Treggs. McCarthy said he did not have a good view of either it,Womens Lawrence Taylor Jersey, but that the team would review them.

"I'm sure we'll react and handle things accordingly," McCarthy said.

Game Recap: Seattle Seahawks beat Los Angeles Chargers in preseason opener

The Seattle Seahawks beat the Los Angeles Chargers 48-17 in their preseason opener at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. Below is the game recap, with the latest updates on top, so be sure and scroll down for all the scoring plays, highlights and play by play from Sunday’s game.

Seahawks beat the Chargers 48-17 in their preseason opener.

Bercovici sacked by Pierre Desir who forces the fumble, Seahawks recover and that will do it at StubHub Center.

Seahawks running back Alex Collins stopped just short of the goal line, then makes it into the end zone next play. Seahawks adding points to the board. PAT good. Seattle over Los Angeles 48-17 with 6:26 to go in the fourth quarter.

Scoring drive: 11 plays for 90 yards in 5:35. The Seahawks now have four rushing touchdowns this evening.

Chargers’ loss a ‘wake-up call’ for rookie cornerback Michael Davis

For weeks, the undrafted cornerback had been one of the Chargers’ most talked-about rookies. Coaches often brought up his height (6-foot-3) and speed (a 40-yard dash in 4.34 seconds), casting the BYU product as a strong candidate to earn a roster spot. “Seemed like every time I turned around,” Coach Anthony Lynn said Wednesday, “he was making a play.”

In an ugly 48-17 preseason loss to the Seahawks, who gave up five deep catches for a total of 144 yards. He was beaten at the line of scrimmage. He was beaten along the sideline. He was beaten on the ground,Authentic Cole Beasley Jersey, few Chargers looked as lost as Davis, losing the ball after tangling himself up with receiver Kasen Williams.

Asked about his performance,Authentic Sean Lee Jersey, Davis was frank: “To be honest, it was (expletive).”

That description,Authentic John Elway Jersey, to be fair, shouldn’t be reserved for Davis alone.

After a crisp opening drive led by starting quarterback Philip Rivers,Authentic Von Miller Jersey, although one of his interceptions was the result of a tipped pass. Andre Williams got eight carries, the Chargers’ second- and third-string lineups struggled in numerous facets of the game. Backup quarterback Kellen Clemens turned the ball over three times, but mustered just 18 yards. The Seahawks’ first two possessions ended with a field goal and a punt; four of their next five reached the end zone.

“I thought our starters played pretty good, but I need to see what’s behind those guys,Authentic Trevor Siemian Jersey,” Lynn said. “I need to see what we’re taking to Denver on Sept. 11.”

In other words, Lynn and his staff need to figure out if players such as Davis are worth keeping when they trim the roster to 53.

It’s up to Davis to turn things around. Seattle backup Trevone Boykin picked on him throughout Sunday’s game, connecting with Kasen Williams four times. Each of those plays gained at least 28 yards, and two came immediately after the Seahawks backed themselves up with penalties.

Davis acknowledged that he had “underestimated” Boykin, adding that he had gotten used to the throwing motions of the Chargers’ quarterbacks. The passes he saw Sunday often floated higher than he’d expected. This was especially obvious early in the third quarter, when Davis mis-timed his jump on Williams’ final catch of the day — a 29-yarder that put Seattle just shy of the end zone.

“Coming into the game, you know, I really thought that I had it in the bag,” Davis said. “But turned out, you don’t have anything in the bag until you really get on the grass and everything. It was a wake-up call. Today,Womens Trevor Siemian Jersey, it’s one thing. It’ll never happen again.”

Linebacker Denzel Perryman injured his left ankle in the first quarter of the Chargers’ preseason debut, and multiple reports indicate he could be out for at least a month.

ESPN reported that the former second-round pick will miss 4-6 weeks, which would potentially allow him to return for the Chargers’ regular-season home opener against the Dolphins on Sept. 17. NFL Network reported that Perryman could miss four games, and suggested that surgery is a possibility.

Perryman, started 11 games last season. In his absence, who returned to the sideline Sunday with crutches and a walking boot, the Chargers will likely lean on Jatavis Brown — who played inside linebacker last season — or Korey Toomer.

Top 5 Seahawks who shined in preseason victory over Chargers

The Seattle Seahawks got behind early on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, leading them to a 48-17 victory. While there were a lot of highlights, but the second unit took care of business, here are five players who really shined in Sunday’s victory.

WR Kasen Williams Williams was targeted four times in Sunday’s match and made the most of them,Womens Cole Beasley Jersey, Jermaine Kearse and Amara Darboh all ahead of him on the depth chart. Sunday’s performance is a big step in the right direction for Williams, hauling in all four and totaling 119 yards. This included a nice 34-yard gain on a pass from backup QB Trevone Boykin. Williams is entering his third year in the NFL after only playing in three games his last two seasons. The former Washington Husky still has a long road ahead of him to find the field in 2017,Womens Sean Lee Jersey, with Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett,Womens John Elway Jersey, Paul Richardson, but unless injuries strike it seems unlikely that he will be a big performer once the regular season rolls around.

RB Chris Carson Carson had seven rushing attempts for 19 yards, Carson has made a nice jump up on the depth chart and could be in line for some work this season,Womens Von Miller Jersey, but found the end zone twice on one-yard runs for the Seahawks. Carson added one reception for three yards on the day as well. The seventh-round pick out of Oklahoma State has been impressing teammates and fans alike in training camp, and seeing him push two touchdowns across only adds to his resume. While Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise figure to get nearly all the carries this season, especially if any of the big-three get injured. Carson’s primary competition comes from Mike Davis and Alex Collins. Davis had eight carries for 33 yards on Sunday and Collins had six carries for nine yards and a touchdown. Carson has the tools to jump both on the depth chart heading into 2017.

Trevone Boykin Amidst a tumultuous offseason that saw Boykin in legal trouble on more than one occasion, Boykin should remain on the bench for the majority of the season. However, the Seahawks gained national attention looking for a replacement backup quarterback. Ultimately, they decided to stick with Boykin and early returns look promising on the second-year man out of TCU. Boykin took over for Russell Wilson after the first quarter and completed 12/15 passes for 189 yards. He had two total touchdowns, completing a two-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Lawler and running one in from four yards out at the end of the second half. Boykin filled in for Russell Wilson last year in five games, completing 13/18 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown.
