Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

What some are calling the NFL’s Game of the Year already has made huge headlines by being moved out of Mexico City because of poor playing conditions. Chiefs-Rams is back in Los Angeles Jake Fisher Jersey White , in prime time and, if it lives up to its billing, could be a wild, high-scoring affair.Regardless of who wins, both clubs figure to be in the Super Bowl mix. And because of the extracurriculars associated with Monday night’s meeting, perhaps it won’t be a fair measurement which is the superior team.Who cares?For a mid-November match, fans can’t ask for much better than a pair of 9-1 teams with powerhouse offenses and stars galore — leading MVP contenders Todd Gurley of Los Angeles and Patrick Mahomes of Kansas City for starters — going at it as the only show in town. No matter which town.It’s the first meeting in NFL history this late in a season between two teams averaging 33 points per game.“He’s made some plays that you sit back and you can’t help but just say, ‘Wow, what a great play,'” Rams coach Sean McVay says of Mahomes, who leads the NFL in yards passing (3,150). Rams QB Jared Goff is second (3,134).Mahomes set a Chiefs record with an NFL-best 31st TD pass of the season last week. Len Dawson had held that KC record since 1964.Gurley paces the NFL in scoring (108 points), yards rushing (988), carries (198), yards from scrimmage (1,390) and touchdowns (17). He has scored a touchdown in 13 consecutive games, extending his own franchise record.“He is a heck of a player. A great player,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid says when asked how to slow Gurley. “You have to be disciplined. They’re a disciplined offense, so you have to be disciplined from a defensive standpoint. Then practice that way and then you go play.”OK, guys Jeff Driskel Jersey , go play. Let America watch what could be a classic.The weekend began Thursday night with Seattle’s 27-24 home victory over Green Bay. Russell Wilson threw for 225 yards and his 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left was the difference. Seattle (5-5) snapped a two-game losing streak. Green Bay dropped to 4-5-1.Off this week are New England (7-3), the New York Jets (3-7), Miami (5-5), Cleveland (3-6-1), San Francisco (2-8) and Buffalo (3-7).MINNESOTA (5-3-1) at CHICAGO (6-3)We soon will find out if the Bears are for real. They are on top of the NFC North, now face the defending division winners, then in a ridiculously short turnaround from Sunday night, they play the early Thanksgiving Day game at Detroit. They also have the Rams and Packers on the road in December.Two of the NFL’s stingiest and most physical defenses should be main factors Sunday.Minnesota has allowed an average of only 252.5 yards over last four games, winning three. It did so missing some starters. Safety Harrison Smith likes seeing the Bears: Smith has four interceptions and six passes defended in 10 career games vs. Chicago.Chicago dropped 10 in a row against the NFC North before beating Detroit last Sunday. It leads the NFL with 16 interceptions, and ranks second with 24 takeaways.HOUSTON (6-3) at WASHINGTON (6-3)Two also-rans of 2017 now leading their divisions.The Texans have won six in a row and come off a bye. Key personnel such as DE J.J. Watt and QB Deshaun Watson were injured last year and are now playing at peak efficiency.If Watson gets time to throw — Houston has surrendered 30 sacks — DeAndre Hopkins will be the biggest challenge to cover. He has four games with 10-plus catches, 100-plus yards and a touchdown through the air. That’s most in the league since the start of 2017, and Hopkins has five TD catches over the past four games. .Washington has showed some balance on offense, but the defense has been a major factor in its strong year. It has forced a turnover in 13 consecutive games, the NFL’s longest active streak.TENNESSEE (5-4) at INDIANAPOLIS (4-5)Suddenly, there’s a race in the AFC South, and the Colts could get even more involved with a fourth consecutive victory. But the Titans, coming off their best game by far in an upset of the Patriots, have won six straight within the division.Of course, Andrew Luck was not in the lineup for any of those; Luck is 9-0 in starts against Tennessee.“I’m aware of it,” Luck says. “But what’s happened has happened, and good http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/aut … ing-jersey , bad or ugly, it doesn’t really matter.”The Titans have the league’s No. 1 scoring defense, allowing 16.8 points a game, and have yielded a league-low 16 touchdowns.PHILADELPHIA (4-5) at NEW ORLEANS (8-1)New Orleans looks like the NFL’s top team right now, and the Eagles don’t resemble their title-winning squad of last season.Injuries are damaging Philly’s defense at a really bad time. A banged-up secondary takes on Drew Brees and his assortment of helpers. The Saints have scored at least 40 points in five games this season, the third team in NFL history to score 40 in five of the first nine. Brees is completing 77.1 percent of his passes, has thrown for 21 TDs with one interception, and has a 123.8 passer rating.Michael Thomas is tied for the NFL lead with 78 catches, ranks second with 950 yards, while Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram form a formidable and versatile backfield.PITTSBURGH (6-2-1) at JACKSONVILLE (3-6)The Steelers will be wise to look forward and not back at their last encounter with the Jaguars. Jacksonville beat Pittsburgh twice last season, including a 45-42 playoff shocker at Heinz Field.Thinking revenge would be foolish because the Steelers are on a roll. Well, so are the Jags: Pittsburgh has won five in a row, Jacksonville has dropped that many consecutively.Steelers running back James Conner has not allowed the team to regret the contract impasse that has led to Le’Veon Bell sitting out the season. Conner is the eighth player in team history with at least 10 rushing touchdowns, leads the AFC in rushing, and is expected to play after being placed in concussion protocol following last week’s win over Carolina.CINCINNATI (5-4) at BALTIMORE (4-5)Cincinnati brings a historically leaky defense to Baltimore, which might be without regular quarterback Joe Flacco (hip). That would mean either first-round pick Lamar Jackson or veteran Robert Griffin III will try to further expose that Bengals unit.The Bengals have won eight of the last 10 in the series, but they fired first-year defensive coordinator Teryl Austin after a 51-14 loss to the Saints, the second-most points allowed in franchise history. They became the first team in the Super Bowl era to give up 500 yards in three straight games and are on pace to give up an NFL-record 7,273 yards.Head coach Marvin Lewis takes over defensive coordinator duties, too.DALLAS (4-5) at ATLANTA (4-5)The Falcons appeared ready to take a role in the playoff race with three successive wins. Then, they put forth a stinker at Cleveland.Meanwhile Alex Erickson Jersey , the Cowboys seemed headed toward irrelevance before they went into Philadelphia and outplayed the Super Bowl champions.Dallas will want to run with Zeke Elliott, who’s second in the NFL in rushing behind Gurley after gaining 151 yards against the Eagles. Atlanta will want to throw: Matt Ryan has seven games with a QB rating over 100 and six games with more than 300 yards passing, while Julio Jones became the fastest player in NFL history with more than 10,000 yards receiving.CAROLINA (6-3) at DETROIT (3-6)Both teams would like to forget last week’s poor performances.Carolina leads this infrequent series 6-2 and remains in good position in the wild-card race with a victory. Detroit needs an immediate turnaround to get into contention.If this is close, expect Cam Newton and Co. to win. Since 2013, the Panthers are 26-14 in games decided by seven points or fewer. They have won five straight games decided by three or fewer.Newton has thrown at least two TD passes in eight straight games, the longest streak in franchise history.DENVER (3-6) at LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (7-2)While the Rams grab the headlines in LA, the Chargers keep grabbing victories. They could get help in the AFC West if their neighbors knock off KC, too.The Chargers are a league-best 13-3 since Week 9 of last season. Their six-game winning streak marks the 11th time since the merger they had a streak of six or more. Philip Rivers has thrown for two or more TDs in nine straight games. Only five quarterbacks in league history have a string of 10 or more games.TAMPA BAY (3-6) at NEW YORK GIANTS (2-7)Saturday’s Notre Dame-Syracuse matchup in the New York area figures to be more fun than this, although the Bucs usually pile up the yards in passing offense and the Giants come off a stirring Eli Manning-led comeback win.Tampa has lost three in row and six of seven, while New York broke a five-game slide on Monday night. Bucs wideouts Mike Evans (13 catches for 217 yards and a TD in two games) and DeSean Jackson (five touchdowns in the last six games) have feasted on the Giants’ defense.OAKLAND (1-8) at ARIZONA (2-7)The lowest-ranked teams in the AP Pro32 face off with the Cardinals coming off a solid effort at Kansas City. The Raiders? They seem to have fallen into the Black Hole, outscored 54-9 in the last two games.Cardinals star Larry Fitzgerald needs eight receptions to surpass Jerry Rice for the most catches for one team. CINCINNATI (AP) — Marvin Lewis went to sit in his chair and realized someone had lowered it. The chair didn’t cooperate as he struggled to get it to a comfortable level.“I guess that’s what happens when you get beat up,” the Bengals coach joked.Beat up, and then some.The Bengals unraveled in prime time yet again, playing their worst game on the Sunday night stage. A 45-10 loss at Kansas City was the second-most-lopsided during Lewis’ 16 seasons in Cincinnati, surpassed only by a game in which they rested starters to get ready for the playoffs.There was a lot at stake in this one: national recognition and first place in the AFC North. The game was flexed from an afternoon slot to Sunday night so fans nationwide could see a pair of up-and-coming teams in an offensive showdown.Instead, the Bengals (4-3) were dominated in every respect as millions watched.“That’s when your pride gets affected,” receiver Tyler Boyd said Monday. “That hurts more than anything.”For the first time this season, the Bengals are looking up in the standings. Pittsburgh (3-2-1) leads the division by percentage points. Much of the Bengals’ momentum from a 4-1 start has been wasted by another last-second home loss to the Steelers and a blowout at Kansas City in consecutive weeks.Cincinnati has lost nine straight on Sunday night, when it’s 3-16 overall. The Bengals’ last such win was over the Dolphins in 2004. They’re 6-15 in prime-time games since 2011, when Andy Dalton and A.J. Green arrived — 0-6 on Sunday night Clayton Fejedelem Jersey , 2-5 on Monday night, 4-3 on Thursday night and 0-1 on Saturday night.Back on the big stage, they missed tackles , botched coverages, missed blocks, messed up a fake punt and had an interception returned for a touchdown . They struggled to get even the simple things done right.“This one’s going to be hard to swallow just because it was in front of everyone,” safety Jessie Bates said. “Everyone was watching.”The Bengals are trying to escape their history of meltdowns in big games. They haven’t won a playoff game since the 1990 season, the sixth-longest streak of futility in NFL history. Lewis is 0-7 in the playoffs, the worst mark for a head coach.They had a chance to end that Sunday night streak. Instead, they gave viewers reason to tune out early in the third quarter.For one night, it was a Bengals rerun.“It’s a bad look for the whole team to see this happen,” linebacker Preston Brown said. “It’s such a big score difference. You never want to go out there and get blown out on a Sunday night, (especially) when it’s been something we’ve been waiting to show the whole league what we can do.”It was their sixth loss of at least 30 points during Lewis’ 16-year tenure. Their worst loss over that time was a 37-0 defeat against the Jets in 2009, when they rested regulars for the final regular-season game knowing they’d play the Jets again in the playoffs the following week. They lost that one, too.They lost 37-3 at Kansas City in the final game of the 2005 season, when they had wrapped up the division title and were getting ready to play the Steelers in the first round.The Bengals lost 35-3 at Indianapolis in 2008. They’ve had a pair of 31-point losses: 44-13 at Baltimore in the 2012 season opener and 34-3 against Baltimore in 2008.They host Tampa Bay (3-3) on Sunday before heading into their bye week. Four of their next five games are at home.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

The Lions exercised their option on left tackle Taylor Decker‘s contract for the 2020 season and Decker expects that will be the only action on the contract front for a while.Decker is eligible to sign a contract extension in Detroit Levine Toilolo Jersey , but he believes that he has more to do in order to show the Lions he’s the right man for the long term.“In my mind, I’m going to play two more years before that’s going to happen,” Decker said, via MLive.com. “All of that will take care of itself. You get ahead of yourself and you lose sight of getting better each day.”Decker had a strong rookie year before missing half of the 2017 season after surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. He’s started all 24 games he’s played since returning to action and continued health will be part of the path to a lengthier stay in Detroit.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

At least early on Youth N'Keal Harry Jersey , the New England Patriots’ Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins was a surprisingly close affair: the home team took a 7-0 lead, and was still within five points at the half. In the third quarter, however, the Patriots started to pull away behind an offense that finally started clicking and a defense that continued to suffocate the opposing attack both on the ground and through the air.With that in mind, let’s now dig a little deeper and analyze some of the advanced statistics to come out of Sunday’s game.Pass distributionNFL Next Gen StatsWhile his red zone interception in the second quarter was ugly, Tom Brady generally had a good game against a Washington defense that was able to put considerable pressure on him in the first half. Successfully targeting most areas of the field and spreading the football around well — nine players were targeted even with number three wide receiver Phillip Dorsett playing only four snaps — Brady took what the defense gave him en route to a 28-of-42 performance for 348 yards and three touchdowns.Colt McCoy, on the other hand, struggled in his first game since last December. Filling in for an injured Case Keenum, the 33-year-old was under consistent pressure all day while not being helped much by his receiving arsenal: New England’s defense was simply too strong for McCoy to find much of a rhythm, and he had to rely on short and intermediate throws in order to move the football down the field. However, he failed to string enough of them together to effectively challenge the Patriots.Offensive rush directionNFL Next Gen StatsFor the Patriots’ running game, the game against Washington was a tale of two halves. The ground game was unable to get going in quarters one and two, with only seven runs being called versus 34 pass plays. Starting in the third quarter, however, the focus started to shift and the ground game got going: Sony Michel — who also caught a career-high three passes — registered his best game of the season, no matter if used between the tackles or on the perimeter.Pass receivingPass receiving statisticsPlayerSnapsTargetsCompletionsYardsYards after CatchTouchdownsInterceptionsRatingDropsPlayerSnapsTargetsCompletionsYardsYards after CatchTouchdownsInterceptionsRatingDropsNFL Next Gen StatsDespite being listed as “questionable” on the final injury report of the week because of a chest injury originally suffered in Week 3, Julian Edelman delivered a magnificent performance. The reigning Super Bowl MVP and running back James White were Tom Brady’s most-targeted players against Washington, which is no surprise considering that the pressure on the quarterback was significant for large portions of the game.The other pass catchers had their moments as well — from Josh Gordon having a solid outing to both Sony Michel and Ryan Izzo delivering career performances in the passing game. Despite missing Phillip Dorsett for most of the game, New England’s aerial attack produced well as Brady got most of the available depth involved.Receiver separationNFL Next Gen StatsWhile Ryan Izzo stands out in terms of receiver separation — he was open an average of 8.75 yards on his two targets — the rest of New England’s wideouts were tighter covered when Brady targeted them. The quarterback nevertheless trusted them to come away with the receptions Color Rush N'Keal Harry Jersey , and he was proven right more of than not. Washington’s pass catchers were comparatively open, meanwhile, but this speaks more for the Patriots’ defensive approach than any issues with the coverage: New England played plenty of zone against the Redskins.Pass protectionPass protection statisticsPlayerSnapsSacksQB HitsHurriesPlayerSnapsSacksQB HitsHurriestwitter.com/jeffphoweThe Patriots’ offensive line had an up-and-down performance. While the run blocking was solid in the second half, the pass protection saw its fair share of breakdowns from start to finish — especially on the edges: left tackle Marshall Newhouse and right tackle Marcus Cannon combined to surrender 7.5 quarterback pressures, which disrupted New England’s offensive rhythm time and again. Needless to say that the position remains an area of concern with original left tackle Isaiah Wynn still on injured reserve with a toe injury.Pass rush/run defensePass rush/run defense statisticsPlayerSnapsSacksQB HitsHurriesRun stopsPlayerSnapsSacksQB HitsHurriesRun stopstwitter.com/jeffphoweThe Patriots’ saw some solid pass rush contributions across the board, once more showing off their depth on the defensive side of the ball. One name, however, stands out among the rest: Dont’a Hightower, who was the best player on the field for either team. After missing Week 4 because of a shoulder injury, the veteran registered 1.5 sacks and three quarterback hurries on the day, all while also standing out against the run as well.New England’s on-field signal caller led the charge, but others also performed well — from defensive tackle Danny Shelton, to fellow linebackers Jamie Collins Sr. and Kyle Van Noy, to Michael Bennett. Bennett continues to play only a limited role for the Patriots, but his impact is on display whenever he is on the field.Defensive rush directionNFL Next Gen StatsWith the exception of Washington’s 65-yard touchdown off an end-around concept in the first quarter, New England’s run defense was again solid: Adrian Peterson gained just 18 hard-fought yards on seven carries, and neither Wendell Smallwood nor Chris Thompson were able to produce enough for the Redskins offense to seriously challenge the Patriots. While their per-carry averages are solid, they failed to elevate the unit.Pass rush separationNFL Next Gen StatsNew England registered six sacks on the day, but Kyle Van Noy was not among the players to take down Colt McCoy. His impact New England Patriots Jersey 2019 , however, was still noteworthy as the pass rush separation chart shows: when playing downhill to attack the quarterback, no other Patriot came closer than the veteran linebacker who finished the game with one quarterback hit and two additional hurries.Washington’s defense, meanwhile, was finding more consistent success challenging the pocket even though Tom Brady was sacked “only” four times — outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan stood out in particular. If not for Brady’s excellence at escaping pressure and feeling the players around him, New England might have surrendered more takedowns.Pass coveragePass coverage statisticsPlayerSnapsTargetsCompletionsYardsTouchdownsInterceptionsRatingPass BreakupsPlayerSnapsTargetsCompletionsYardsTouchdownsInterceptionsRatingPass Breakupstwitter.com/jeffphoweWashington had a few successful pass plays in the intermediate area of the field, but the Patriots’ coverage was stout once again — with no cornerback surrendering more than 29 receiving yards. And despite leading the team in yardage given up, Stephon Gilmore played a very solid game against Terry McLaurin: Gilmore smartly took away the deep routes and was content with given the impressive rookie receiver space underneath. This allowed him to catch two passes against the All-Pro, but not do any more damage than that. Hey, Kyler, this is for real.Sort of.Kyler Murray, April’s top overall draft pick, will make his preseason debut for Arizona on Thursday night when the Cardinals host the Chargers.The quarterback won’t be on the field very long against Los Angeles, but he should get a chance to show some of the skills that so enamored the Cardinals. He also could wind up on the ground a few times — for the first time as a pro considering QBs don’t get hit in practice.“I’m looking forward to having fun,” Murray says. “It’s going to be different suiting up in a Cardinals jersey. Not playing for a school, you’re representing a state.”That state saw its team have the worst record in the NFL in 2018, fire coach Steve Wilks and hire Kliff Kingsbury, an offensive guru who had recently been fired as head coach at Texas Tech.“To be kind of pushed in as the guy, there’s no kind of grace period of leading him in with any veteran presence at that position N'Keal Harry New England Patriots Jersey ,” Kingsbury said. “He’s remained humble. He’s remained diligent in his work habits, so I’ve been proud of that for him.”With running back Melvin Gordon’s holdout, Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson will get plenty of carries for the Chargers. Defensive tackle and first-round pick Jerry Tillery has gotten some time with the first team.There are 11 games on the first full night of preseason play; the Broncos beat the Falcons last week in the Hall of Fame game.Patriots at LionsFormer Patriots with injuries are of interest here.Trey Flowers, the defensive end who went from New England to Detroit as a free agent and was the Lions’ big offseason acquisition, is on the physically unable to perform list.Coach Matt Patricia, a former defensive assistant for the Patriots in his second season with Detroit, has been recovering from a surgically repaired left leg that’s caused him to move around the practice facility on a vehicle.“I’m working with our doctors here to try to figure out what’s best for myself to be safe on the sideline from that standpoint,” he said. “I don’t think I’ll be riding the ATV around unfortunately on the sideline.”The receivers watch begins for the Patriots.Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman (thumb) is sidelined and Phillip Dorsett is the only other returning receiver from last season. First-round draft pick N’Keal Harry has had a strong camp and undrafted free agent Jakobi Meyers has been a standout, even earning reps with the first team.Titans at EaglesIf Eagles QB Carson Wentz plays, it’ll be his first action since a back injury ended his season early for the second straight year and forced him to watch Nick Foles lead the team to a playoff victory in his absence. Foles, the Super Bowl MVP two years ago, is gone now and Nate Sudfeld is trying to solidify the backup spot.Tennessee gives new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith his first chance to call plays in a game. Smith was promoted from tight ends coach to coordinator when Matt LaFleur took the head coaching job with Green Bay.Redskins at BrownsFirst-round quarterback Dwayne Haskins is expected to make his Redskins debut. The 15th overall pick out of Ohio State is competing with veterans Case Keenum and Colt McCoy for the starting job. Haskins has flashed a strong arm, but made a lot of rookie mistakes in camp.“We’ll see how he does in a game,” coach Jay Gruden said. “We’ll see how he’s taken what he’s done on the practice field to see how it transitions into a real game situation. And how he handles the huddles and cadence, anticipation, accuracy — all that good stuff.”There’s much anticipation about Cleveland — QB Baker Mayfield, new WR Odell Beckham Jr., Myles Garrett — but it’s unlikely any will play much if at all. Garrett missed two days of practice with an unspecified injury.Jets at GiantsAdam Gase gets started as Jets head coach. He was hired in January after New York fired Todd Bowles after four seasons without making the playoffs. He isn’t likely to use prized addition running back Le’Veon Bell.Gregg Williams’ defense will also be on display for the first time with new inside linebacker C.J. Mosley and first-round pick Quinnen Williams, who has looked good in camp on the D-line.Eli Manning is starting a team-record 16th season Cheap N'Keal Harry Jersey , but is in the final year of his contract. Though he is the starter, Daniel Jones, the No. 6 pick overall draft pick, is the heir apparent and will get plenty of preseason work, including against the Jets.Falcons at DolphinsBrian Flores’ first game as Miami’s coach.“I’m very excited,” he says. “I’m excited to see all the hard work we’ve put in from April 1 until now, to go out and try to perform and execute at a good level.”One player to watch: Preston Williams, an undrafted receiver out of Colorado State, who has been the most impressive rookie for the Dolphins in camp.The Falcons placed quarterback Kurt Benkert on injured reserve with a toe injury. He was pushing Matt Schaub as Matt Ryan’s top backup. Matt Simms, who last played with Atlanta in 2017, was re-signed and is expected to play against the Dolphins.Colts at BillsThough Buffalo’s new-look offensive line has been beset by injuries, the Bills will get their first glimpse at a retooled offense featuring receivers John Brown and Cole Beasley. Center Mitch Morse (concussion) missed the past 10 days. Tackle LaAdrian Waddle will miss the season after tearing his right quadriceps on Sunday.With Andrew Luck out and Jacoby Brissett taking limited snaps, Bills fans might get to watch Chad Kelly try to resuscitate his QB career. The nephew of Hall of Famer Jim Kelly signed with the Colts in May, but has had an uneven camp.Jaguars at RavensThe Ravens are expected to use quarterback Lamar Jackson briefly to see how he handles first-year offensive coordinator Greg Roman’s revamped playbook. It will also mark the debut of former Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley, who will see extended time because backup Robert Griffin III is out with a broken right thumb.Jacksonville will rest nearly all of its potential starters after working out together with the Ravens this week. That includes new quarterback Nick Foles.Panthers at BearsPanthers star linebacker Luke Kuechly has no qualms about playing in exhibition games. Kuechly returned to full practice this week after missing time last week, noting he got hit on the side during practice, but added that “everything is fine.” The seven-year NFL veteran jokes playing in the preseason “it helps me remember how to play football.”“You can’t tackle people out here (at practice) and there is a big difference between running by a guy and tagging off and actually tackling someone,” Kuechly says.With very few position battles, the Bears have one goal in the preseason opener: find a kicker. Elliott Fry and Eddy Pineiro will see their first game action in pursuit of the job Cody Parkey had last year.“There’s pressure on every kick in Chicago right now Womens N'Keal Harry Jersey , so every chance you get, do your best to make it. And if you miss one, come back the next time and make the next one,” Bears coach Matt Nagy says.Texans at PackersCoach Bill O’Brien said that many Texans starters should get some playing time, though it’s unlikely star defensive end J.J. Watt will be one of them. Watt left a joint practice with Green Bay early on Monday after experiencing tightness in his groin and sat out Tuesday as a precaution.Watt, who grew up a Packers fan, is disappointed he won’t get to play at Lambeau Field, but knows being careful this early in the preseason is more important than getting on the field.“Groin tightened up just a little bit, so rather than try and push through it and try and do some damage to it, we just shut it down,” he said. “I’ve gotten smarter as I got older, so I started listening to the trainers a little bit more than just listening to my own brain.”O’Brien said rookie Lonnie Johnson Jr. will play three days after causing a stir with a hard hit during the first joint practice on Monday. The cornerback hit Green Bay tight end Jace Sternberger on a pass over the middle, causing Sternberger’s helmet to pop off, and then taunted him. The incident upset several Packers and caused O’Brien to pull him from practice early on Monday and hold him out on Tuesday.Broncos at SeahawksQB Joe Flacco makes his Denver debut at Seattle.“At this point, it doesn’t really feel any different than it’s been the last 10 years,” Flacco says. “I think your rookie year is obviously a little different than any of the others. But at this point I am used to being here. I am used to being in this uniform. These are my teammates and I am just excited about doing it.”Seattle will get its first chance to see Geno Smith and Paxton Lynch in a game situation in the competition to back up Russell Wilson. Smith has been the better of the two overall during the first couple of weeks of training camp.The Seahawks could see rookie wide receiver DK Metcalf in his first game action and get a better idea of what he can bring to Seattle’s offense.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

Bob Sutton on new tackling rule: “I wouldn’t want to officiate this” Bob Sutton doesn’t know what to do.For some Chiefs fans Darwin Thompson Jersey nfl draft , that’s a statement about the Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator that’s true every single day.But in this case, Sutton is referring specifically to the new rule that was enforced on Chiefs linebacker Tanoh Kpassagnon on Saturday during the Chiefs 27-20 preseason loss to the Chicago Bears.You know.This one.Speaking to the media on Monday, Sutton said he’s just not sure what to tell his players if that’s the way the new rule regarding a defensive player putting all of his weight on the quarterback is going to be called.“The one they called on TK — and I wouldn’t want to officiate this; I’m just being honest, this is a hard play to officiate — it’s very difficult to tell TK to do something different in that situation,” he said. “This isn’t like the one where you pick the quarterback up and slam him into the ground. You had a choice on that. You could just take him to the ground, or pick him up and slam him. So they said, ‘OK, don’t slam him. That’s a penalty.’ This one is really hard. I don’t know exactly how to tell him to take his weight off the guy from the position he was coming in that situation.”Whether you like Sutton or not, it’s hard to disagree with his point of view here.Is this going to be the new standard?A sack that just about anyone would previously have called a textbook defensive play now results in 15 yards and a first down for the offense?Sutton reminded reporters that during training camp, he was more worried about this new rule than he was about the new helmet rule that has had so much press attention so far.“I’m not really sure how it’s going to play out. When we had the officials in Replica Darwin Thompson Jersey , I asked, ‘Did anybody think about trying to tackle Ben Roethlisberger?’ It’s hard enough to get him down with all of your weight. But to say, ‘I’m going to slide off to the side and not do it,’ is really hard. I just think it’s a hard rule. I think it’s hard on the officials. I really do. I think we all know what the intent is. We’re not looking to slam this guy in the dirt, but there are some times that I just don’t know what you can do from a physical standpoint to change that — without just stopping completely.”Even if you think — as some Chiefs fans do — that Sutton is a doddering old fool who should be shown the door, you’ll probably be right here with him on this one.It’s one thing to have a new rule that promotes player safety.But it’s quite another to have one whose application is going to be almost impossible to predict, and it will almost certainly drastically change the way pass rushers can play the game. With 1:11 left in the 4th quarter, the Los Angeles Chargers had less than a 0.1 percent chance of beating the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football.Unfortunately for in-game trackers, Philip Rivers doesn’t follow most metrics.While the right edge of the end zone reading ‘CHIEFS’ may get the most attention and be replayed within the minds of Bolts fans for years to come, it is the stripes lining the center of the field that will be etched into the nightmares of Kansas City supporters: those markers Stitched Darwin Thompson Jersey , 42 of them coupling to make up the 26 yards Travis Benjamin gashed through with the Chargers holding onto less hope than a Vegas degenerate putting it all on 00.Just like the pusher at the table grasping at the unlikeliest of possibilities the ball will land on green, the Bolts were down to their final opportunity.Facing 4th and 7 at the KC 36, Rivers was under pressure. Not just the pressure of losing each of the last nine games to the Chiefs; not just the pressure of a win securing the Chargers first playoff appearance since 2013; pressure from a suffocating defense that had already tallied five sacks on the night.Rivers, displaying his telepathic senses, slung the ball out from duress to Benjamin, who had not even turned around yet. Benjamin, who saw all 57 yards come on the final drive, was still dealing with creating separation from DB Kendall Fuller.When Benjamin finally made his turn to look for the ball, the space wasn鈥檛 great, but then again Darwin Thompson Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , neither were their odds of winning the game.Rivers slipped the ball past an outstretched Fuller, who was a finger nail clipping-less night away from deflecting it, directly into the waiting arms of his seven-year veteran receiver.With Fuller lying on the ground grasping nothing but air, Benjamin barreled for another seven yards down to the KC 10.From there, well, the night played out as most know. Questionable calls led to questionable field position, ultimately leading to a questionable no call on a non-questionable touchdown that was reviewed for far too long and a gutsy two-point conversion that embarrassed a questionable secondary.“We didn’t come here to tie,” head coach Anthony Lynn said at his postgame news conference. “We came here to win. So to me, it was a no-brainer.”Thursday was the 11th time in Rivers鈥?career he鈥檚 led a comeback from 14 points or more, the most of any active quarterback.With the AFC West title still in limbo and Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys Stitched , more importantly, the Lombardi Trophy out of touch for another six weeks, at least the Chargers can breath knowing for the first time in five years they will have a shot to be the ones hoisting it after clinching a playoff berth.So, next time Rivers steps onto the field, check the roulette table for any open green spots.“Never tell me the odds!”

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

Browns coach Freddie Kitchens won’t complain about officiating Michael Deiter Jersey Cheap , because he likes money. But since he doesn’t have to worry about being fined for complaining about the media, Kitchens will complain at will.Kitchens complained on Friday to the media about the manner in which the media interpreted receiver Jarvis Landry‘s “we’re gonna win” remarks from Thursday.“I would like to address that,” Kitchens said regarding the concept that Landry guaranteed a win. “I think I do a pretty good job of communicating with you guys and telling you as much as I can from a truth perspective. I would just like the same in return from you guys when you are talking to our players. Everybody in here knows that Jarvis was not guaranteeing a win. He was asked what do you want to accomplish after the bye, and he stated we would like to go win or something in that realm. New England was never mentioned so for you guys to do that, I think it was very unfair.”Well, Freddie, in the interests of respecting the truth, here’s what Landry was asked: “Now that you guys are all rested up, what’s your sense for how the Browns are going to do coming out of the bye?”And here’s what he said in response to that question: “Well Isaiah Prince Miami Dolphins Jerseys , we’re gonna win. We’re gonna win. It’s just that simple. We’re getting guys back healthy again, and we’re gonna win.”Kitchens can try to say that Landry said something other than what he said, but that’s what Landry said. He was either specifically guaranteeing a win in their next game, or he was generally guaranteeing a win in every game to be played. Regardless, he repeatedly said, “We’re gonna win.”And yet Kitchens, reflecting the two-plus-two-is-five vibe that currently dominates partisan politics, insists that there was no guarantee.“We do not guarantee anything,” Kitchens said. “These guys have never guaranteed anything. They have guaranteed that they would go out and give their best Miami Dolphins Jerseys 2019 , and I think that is what they have done.”That’s fine. But Landry said what he said. The toothpaste has violently escaped the tube, and nothing Kitchens says now is going to scrape it off the wall.Wouldn’t it be better to say, “I know what Jarvis said and Jarvis knows what he said, but he didn’t mean it that way”? That could be far closer to the truth than what Kitchens said Friday. Besides, it would make his attack on the media for not residing within the boundaries of the truth slightly more credible (or slightly less incredible) if Kitchens were doing the same. He’s not.And it’s not as if Landry has never made a bold claim when it comes to the Patriots. In 2017, Landry vowed that the Dolphins would sweep the Patriots. And he later reiterated his position during the 2017 season, as the two games against the Patriots approached.The Dolphins did not sweep the Patriots in 2017. The Browns, who already were going to have their hands full with the Patriots on Sunday, will face an even stiffer challenge Isaiah Prince Jersey nfl draft , because no matter what Kitchens says now, the Patriots regard Landry’s remarks as a guarantee. As does anyone with eyes and/or ears and common sense.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

Former NFL defensive end Chris McCain is only 27 Josh Sitton Jersey , and if he wanted to continue to play football there’s a chance he could. But he has decided to try a different sport.As explained by Gilbert Manzano of the Southern California News Group, McCain hopes to make it in MMA.McCain became a solid contibutor to the Chargers in 2017, racking up five sacks in 15 appearances. The Chargers applied a $1.9 million restricted free agency tender offer for 2018, but an accusation of spitting on a woman and grabbing her neck, which resulted in two counts of misdemeanor battery, prompted the Chargers to rescind the tender. (McCain denies the allegations.) He later signed with the Colts, but he was released during the 2018 preseason.McCain has decided not to return to football, because he believes football was the root of his problems.“I had hit the worst points of my life when I was playing in the NFL,” McCain said. “I just can’t [return to the NFL]. There is no point. More money, more problems. No point. Less money, less problems. I’m not making nearly as much as I was making in the NFL, and I don’t hear from nearly over 80 percent of the people I met and know, which I’m thankful for. God showed me something. I’m blessed with the people still in my corner and people I talk to, but definitely showed me something.”So McCain, who also played for the Dolphins and Saints, texted former Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman, expressing an interest to try fighting.“I just got a lot of anger and frustration,” McCain said. “I really needed to figure out what it is I can do to really help me express myself Andrew Van Ginkel white jersey , and football just wasn’t enough. I’m getting tired of being fined for stuff. Fighting in the locker room. Fighting on the field. Sitting out a practice because you’re fighting in practice. Had joint practices with different teams, getting in fights on that. It was just a lot. I just think this is what I need to be doing. . . . To be in the NFL, it’s not worth the stress and depression. It’s really not.”His new sport is worth it, because he believes his new sport is helping him.“This is my therapy, me beating you up, and I can beat you up the right way,” McCain said.He makes his official MMA debut on Saturday, as he attempts to beat up Jamal Harris (0-2) as an unpaid amateur in Merriman’s second Lights Out Xtreme Fighting event.McCain hopes to eventually fight Jon Jones. McCain has a very long way to go to get to that point, but if the talent he showed as a pass rusher translates to the octagon, McCain could end up having an interesting second career. DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — For any New England Patriots wanting to say hello Sunday to former teammate Danny Amendola, they most likely can find him running over the middle.But they already knew that. That’s where Amendola made his living for five seasons with the Patriots, and that’s where he has made an impact so far with his new team, the Miami Dolphins.The veteran receiver faces his former team this week and said he’s excited to return to Foxborough, although he’s not sure what form the reunion will take.“They have a lot of great people there,” Amendola said. “I can’t sit down and talk to all of them. I’m going to just focus on the game, and whoever I get to hit or handshake, that’s fine with me.”He’ll likely be hit Andrew Van Ginkel Miami Dolphins Jerseys , too. Amendola’s hallmark is pass patterns over the middle, where he willingly exposes his 5-foot-11, 190-pound frame to jarring blows.He has been effective that way for the surprising Dolphins, leading them with 11 receptions. While he has totaled only 100 yards, he has drawn attention and opened up the flanks to speedier receivers Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant.As a result, Ryan Tannehill ranks third in the NFL in yards per attempt, and the Dolphins this week have a chance at their first 4-0 start since 1995.Tannehill loves Amendola’s contribution to the offense, and his willingness to work between the hash marks.“It’s huge,” Tannehill said. “To have the confidence and the bravery — I don’t know the politically correct word to use here — to stand in there and make those catches in tight windows, knowing that you’re going to take some punishment afterward, is huge. Some guys can’t do it, but if you look at Danny, he’s a guy who has done it for his whole career and continues to do it. So, yes, it’s awesome to have. It definitely keeps the chains moving for us.”Miami coach Adam Gase wanted to improve the culture of his team after going 6-10 last year. So the Dolphins parted with high-maintenance receiver Jarvis Landry and signed Amendola to a $12 million, two-year deal.With 13 postseason games and two Super Bowl rings on his resume, Amendola has brought to Miami the anticipated intangibles Miami Dolphins Jerseys 2019 , Gase said.“Just seeing him every day in meetings doing things the way that he does them, and the intensity that he brings, and everything he does has been great for our guys to witness,” Gase said. “He has been a positive influence.”Stills agreed.“It takes a lot of heart and courage to go across the middle and take some of the hits he has taken throughout his career,” Stills said. “That energizes a group. It makes our group stronger. That’s a high bar he sets for the rest of us.”If it annoys Amendola that the Patriots didn’t re-sign him, he’s won’t say so. Instead, he said his years with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick provided a lasting education.“Some of the things I learned there I’ll carry with me forever,” Amendola said. “What I’ve learned most is how to prepare for a game, what goes into the weekly routine leading into a game. I’m just using my preparation skills against them now.”When asked if Dolphins coaches picked his brain this week about the Patriots’ system, Amendola said: “They’re smart.”Amendola’s smart, too, and knows better than to gloat about the struggling Patriots (1-2) trailing his new team in the AFC East standings.“It’s early in the season,” he said. “Everybody in the whole league is trying to figure some things out and trying to get moving, including us.”The Dolphins have already figured out they can get moving by throwing over the middle to Amendola.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals had four interceptions A.J. Green Jersey , six sacks and a late 18-point lead. They needed all of it — and every last second on the clock as well — to salvage a win that was more relief than anything.Jessie Bates returned Jameis Winston’s fourth interception for a touchdown Sunday, and the Bengals overcame Ryan Fitzpatrick’s late rally for a 37-34 victory that left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a question at quarterback.The Bengals (5-3) put together their only drive of the second half to pull it out. Andy Dalton had completions of 23 and 9 yards to A.J. Green that got them in range for Randy Bullock’s 44-yard field goal on the final play.“A win is a win, but this one feels a little weird,” Bengals linebacker Preston Brown said.Weird all around.Cincinnati was coming off a 45-10 loss at Kansas City on Sunday night that was their second-worst drubbing in coach Marvin Lewis’ 16 seasons. The Bengals gave up 576 yards to the Bucs (3-4) and managed only 95 yards in the second half — 50 on the final drive.“We’re not very happy with how we performed,” Bates said.Tampa Bay’s biggest problem earlier this season was its porous defense, which led to a change of coordinators. This time, their quarterback play was their downfall.Winston opened the season on suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. He’s had seven turnovers in the past two games, creating an opening for Fitzpatrick to reclaim the job that was his at season’s start.Winston was benched after matching his career high with four interceptions, the third time he’s thrown so many in his career. He has thrown 10 interceptions, one fewer than all last season.“I’m definitely the reason we came up short with this game Cheap Andrew Billings Jersey , and I know that I have to fix it,” said Winston, who was 18 of 35 for 276 yards with five sacks.Winston went to the bench, and Fitzpatrick pulled Tampa Bay even.He threw a 72-yard touchdown to Mike Evans , his fifth TD pass of at least 50 yards this season — most in the NFL. He also led an 88-yard drive to the tying score, hitting O.J. Howard for an 18-yard touchdown and completing another pass for the conversion with 1:05 left.Fitzpatrick finished 11 of 15 for 194 yards and a passer rating of 154.9 that’s just shy of perfect.Now, the Bucs have to decide which one will lead the NFL’s top-ranked offense.“Today is not the day I need to decide that,” coach Dirk Koetter said.DeSean Jackson caught a 60-yard touchdown pass that moved him ahead of Jerry Rice for the NFL record. He has 24 TDs of at least 60 yards. It also was Jackson’s 29th career TD of at least 50 yards , tying Randy Moss for second-most since the 1970 merger behind Rice’s 36.FAST STARTCincinnati couldn’t hold a 27-6 lead set up by a big first half. Joe Mixon ran for 114 yards in the half and scored on runs of 1 and 8 yards. Tyler Boyd had six catches for 112 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown.LOTS OF INTsWinston has thrown at least two interceptions in five straight games Andy Dalton Jersey Limited , tied for the most since 1990. His 13 interceptions over that span are tied with Fitzpatrick for the most in a five-game stretch over the past five seasons.LOTS OF EMPTY SEATSThe game drew 45,134 fans, the smallest crowd at Paul Brown Stadium since 41,273 showed up for a 23-16 win over Arizona on Dec. 24, 2011.BLOWING IN THE WINDBoth kickers missed extra-point attempts in a gusty, swirling wind.NO SAD SACKBuccaneers end Jason Pierre-Paul had a pair of sacks. He’s had at least one in six straight games, tying Simeon Rice for the most consecutive games with a sack in team history.INJURIESBuccaneers: RB Ronald Jones II suffered a hamstring injury in the second half.Bengals: G Clint Boling hurt his back late in the first half. DE Carl Lawson hurt his right knee, reportedly an ACL tear. CB Dre Kirkpatrick left in the third quarter with an Achilles injury that kept him out of practice, but he returned.UP NEXTBuccaneers: Play at Carolina on Sunday, finishing a stretch of four road games out of five.Bengals: Have their bye week Boomer Esiason Jersey , followed by a home game against the Saints. John DeFilippo has re-emerged in Jacksonville. Which obviously means that Jacksonville could emerge as a contender for Eagles quarterback Nick Foles.DeFilippo, the quarterbacks coach during the Super Bowl run that saw Foles become the MVP of the league’s championship game, knows Foles well, and has had success with him. With Blake Bortles clearly on the outs, the Jags will be looking — and DeFilippo will surely be lobbying for Foles.For a team that has the talent to contend, a quarterback like Foles could be the answer, especially in light of his views on the importance of relationships and teamwork. The question becomes whether the Jaguars can finagle Foles’ rights, whether it happens through the free agency process or by a trade with the Eagles.If it’s the latter, the Eagles surely would be happy to comply. They’d love to steer Foles out of the division (the Giants and Washington may be interested), and they won’t see the Jaguars in a regular-season setting until 2022. Whether it’s Jacksonville Renell Wren Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , Miami, Cincinnati, Denver, or someone else in the AFC, the Eagles would like nothing more than the ensure that Foles won’t resurface in the NFC East.Maybe that’s where the compromise could happen. Even though it would be an unenforceable side agreement that could get the Eagles in trouble (if anyone were to blab about it), the Eagles and Foles could agree on a wink-nod basis to let Foles walk away as a free agent if he makes it clear that he won’t roll in either direction on I-95 but instead head to a team with which the Eagles doesn’t directly compete.

Riddick will get his chance at revenge in Week 16." NFL NewsFormer Lions RB Theo Riddick expected to sign with Denver BroncosNew Womens Taylor Decker Jersey ,28commentsRiddick will get his chance at revenge in Week 16. EDTFormer Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick appears to be headed to the Mile High City. According to Mike Klis of 9News, Riddick is expected to sign with the Denver Broncos later this week. Per Klis, Riddick has many suitors, but was most highly pursued by the Broncos and Saints. Last week, the Lions released Riddick after adding former Packers defensive tackle Mike Daniels.In six years with the Lions Taylor Decker Jersey White , Riddick pulled in 285 catches for 2,238 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also rushed for 1023 yards on 288 carries (3.6 YPC) and an additional five touchdowns. Riddick was also one of the team’s best pass blockers, and one of their better options on third downs. However, the team added both C.J. Anderson and Ty Johnson this offseason, making Riddick—and his $4.625 million cap hit—expendable. Riddick will get a chance to face his former team when the Lions and Broncos face off in Week 16 of the regular season. Welcome to some early morning football! If you’re on the east coast Quandre Diggs Jersey White , 9:30 a.m. football is an absolute treat, and you should cherish this day. If you’re on the west coast, go back to bed. It isn’t worth it.This year, the Panthers and Buccaneers kick off Week 6 with the second London game of the season. As far as Week 6 games go, this is a fairly important one. The Panthers are looking to keep their three-game winning streak alive http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authenti … ggs-jersey , despite missing Cam Newton with an injury. The Buccaneers are a gritty 2-3 thus far, but still very much in the conversation in the NFC race. They’ve already beaten the Panthers once in Carolina, now they’re looking for the early season sweep to jump them in the standings. For the Lions, you should simply root for the team you think is worse. I think that’s probably the Buccaneers, but you could certainly make the case for either.Anyways Austin Bryant Jersey 2019 , feel free to chat over some breakfast and a coffee as we watch some early morning football.Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay BuccaneersDate: Sunday, October 13Time: 9:30 a.m. ETLocation: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London, England)TV: NFL Network;Online Streaming: FuboTV, Yahoo!

(AP) — Prosecutors can’t release undercover video of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and others allegedly receiving sex acts at a Florida massage parlor until a Florida judge rules later this month.Circuit Judge Joseph Marx on Wednesday barred the release of any video from the Orchids of Asia Day Spa before an April 29 hearing where he will hear from all parties, the Palm Beach Post reported.Palm Beach County prosecutors had filed a notice in a related case saying they believe the videos are public records under Florida law and plan to release pixilated versions — a move Kraft’s attorneys quickly moved to block, accusing prosecutors of apparent “gross prosecutorial misconduct.”Kraft was charged in February with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution for allegedly paying for sex at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida. He has pleaded not guilty. Twenty-four other alleged Orchids of Asia customers were similarly charged.Palm Beach State Attorney David Aronberg wrote to the court in the related case that there is no legal basis to block the videos’ release. The Associated Press and numerous other media outlets have requested the videos.“Absent a Court order, the State will be releasing the requested public records” after they are pixilated, Aronberg wrote. His spokesman, Mike Edmondson, said the release is not imminent as the office is processing numerous public records requests from the case.Defense attorney Jack Goldberger quickly sent a letter to the judge overseeing Kraft’s case, writing that prosecutors are trying to “evade judicial review and end run” around a promise he says they made to await a court ruling on whether the videos are a public record.“The State’s bad faith attempt to circumvent judicial review by simply releasing the Videos” before the judge rules “is an affront to justice and grossly unethical,” Goldberger wrote.David S. Weinstein, a defense attorney and former prosecutor who is not involved in the case, said “there is still no guarantee that the tapes will be released.” Prosecutors “are simply stating that they are complying with their duties under the public records laws and they won’t be withholding the tapes,” he said. Even if the trial judge orders the videos’ release, Kraft’s attorneys could appeal Chase Winovich Jersey Draft , he said.Kraft, 77, is accused of paying for sex acts at the spa twice in January. While fighting the charges, he recently issued an apology saying he had disappointed his family, friends, co-workers, fans “and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard.”Kraft said he has “extraordinary respect for women,” adding that his morals were shaped by his late wife, who died in 2011.According to police records, Kraft, who is worth $6 billion, was chauffeured to the Orchids of Asia spa on the evening of Jan. 19, where officers secretly recorded him engaging in a sex act and then handing over an undetermined amount of cash.Investigators said Kraft returned 17 hours later and was again videotaped engaging in sex acts before paying with a $100 bill and another bill, police said.Hours later Chase Winovich NFL Jersey , he was in Kansas City for the AFC Championship game, where his Patriots defeated the Chiefs. His team then won the Super Bowl in Atlanta, the Patriots’ sixth NFL championship under his ownership.Goldberger has previously accused Jupiter police of having “deliberately misrepresented” facts used to get a judge to approve the warrant allowing the cameras’ secret installation. Officers used an undisclosed ruse to gain access to the spa days before Kraft’s visits.Jupiter was part of a multicounty investigation of massage parlor prostitution and possible human trafficking that resulted with the arrests of about 300 men and the closure of 10 spas. The spa owners have been charged with felonies. Prosecutors have conceded they found no evidence of human trafficking at the Jupiter spa.Goldberger also said officers did not exhaust less-invasive means of investigating the spa, and Florida law says audio surveillance such as wiretaps should only be used for serious felonies such as murder or kidnapping and does not list prostitution.Prosecutors have offered to drop the charges if Kraft enters a diversion program for first-time offenders, as some others charged have. That would include an admission he would be found guilty if the case went to trial, a $5,000 fine, 100 hours of community service and attendance in a class on the dangers of prostitution and its connection to human trafficking. He would also have to make a court appearance and be tested for sexually transmitted diseases.Prosecutors have said the fine and community service are required by law and are not negotiable. The wide receiver’s return is tremendous news when it comes to Gordon’s wellbeing." Patriots OpinionPatriots wide receiver Josh Gordon’s reinstatement is so much bigger than footballNew,24commentsRelated: Josh Gordon reinstated by the NFLEDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options for:Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon’s reinstatement is so much bigger than footballTwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailPhoto by Michael Reaves/Getty ImagesEight months ago, the NFL indefinitely suspended Josh Gordon for violating the terms of his reinstatement under the league’s substance abuse policy. His 2018 season therefore ended in disappointed after it had represented a renaissance of sorts: Gordon was traded from the Cleveland Browns to the New England Patriots in September, and he immediately started to show tremendous personal and athletic promise in his new environment.However, it all came to an abrupt end on December 20. First, Gordon announced that he would step away from football to focus on his mental wellbeing. Later, the league followed that announcement by suspending him. Considering Gordon’s history of struggling with addiction Chase Winovich NFL Draft , his teammates voiced their concerns about him at the time; Matthew Slater’s statements best encapsulated the general feeling in the Patriots’ locker room.“First and foremost, our prayers are with Josh and our concern is with him and what he is dealing with,” the team captain said last December. “I think we have a tendency to become so infatuated with what’s going on on the football field, as players as media members, that we lose sight of what’s going on with the man sometimes. [...] The number one concern is you want to see him be fine, be okay and that’s what we’re praying for.”After the suspension kicked in, Gordon lay low and focused on getting not just his career but more importantly his life back on track. In the meantime, reports about him were scarce. Only now and then did somewhat unrelated news hint towards his progress. In March, New England placed a tender sheet on the restricted free agent to keep him from the open market. In June, he held a private workout with quarterback Tom Brady.Earlier this month, he ultimately filed for reinstatement and only two weeks later the NFL granted it: on Sunday, Gordon can officially rejoin the Patriots. This development obviously is great news for a team that lost some considerable receiving talent over the course of the offseason. However, the impact of Gordon’s reinstatement on New England’s offense pales in comparison to what it actually means for the 28-year-old himself.It is so much bigger than football, after all Chase Winovich Buffalo Bills Jersey , considering that the league would not have allowed him back in if he had not shown sufficient promise and dedication in his fight against addiction. Yesterday’s announcement is therefore an indication that Gordon is at a point in his treatment at which he is able to be inserted into the NFL again — and all that it means when it comes to being under the league’s and the Patriots’ microscopes.“We are all rooting for Josh to succeed, both personally and professionally. Everyone shares in that hope and will continue to support him to every extent possible,” commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement accompanying the NFL’s press release about Gordon’s reinstatement. That statement sums up the situation well, especially since it also includes the following sentence: “[A]s Josh acknowledged, ultimately his success is up to him.”Success has eluded Gordon when it comes to battling his addiction in the past, and there is no telling whether or not this time will be any different. He is working on his problems and has once again reached a promising point, however, even though the hard part continues: Gordon will need to show that he can repay the trust that has been placed in him by the NFL and the Patriots — not for their sake, of course, but for his own.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

Pulling back the curtain on the NFL’s cutdown weekend The team has finally reached the end of its last preseason game Derrick Thomas Jersey , and now the time has come for some very tough decisions. However, this is a good thing because it means that it is also time for some real meaningful games to begin, and that is what everyone is here for.As an individual who worked in the medical side of things for so long, I can attest to the fact that it is not just as easy as calling a player and telling them the news. There are a multitude of steps that go into this very exacting process.While it is true that most decisions on roster spots are made by this point, there are usually several spots still undecided. I used to say that I could predict the roster within a couple of spots. Some seasons were easier than others, but there always seemed to be a surprise out there waiting—either positive or negative. It is never negative to change your team for the better, but it sometimes hurts to have to sign a guy out that was with you for a long time or was a team favorite. That hurts, there is no way around it and no one enjoys that side of it. However, the team rolls on and games must be played with the best roster that can be put built.After the final game, the long process begins of final player evaluations. Not just on the team you are rooting for—for all teams. Personnel staff must evaluate everyone to be ready for potential cuts, trades or injuries. This means keeping tabs on the entire league Christian Okoye Jersey , an arduous process to be sure.Once cuts for your team are decided, the player is contacted and told to report to the facility. They all know it’s coming, and a phone call from a number they don’t recognize is usually the sign. I’ve even experienced situations where players left town or wouldn’t answer their phones, as they thought this would prevent them from being cut. It didn’t, of course.The players then report to the building and see all the appropriate people, beginning with the personnel department and then the coaching staff first normally. At that point, the player then must check out with all the rest of the football departments, including video, equipment, football ops and of course medical.Medical is one of the most important, obviously Marcus Allen Jersey , since at this point of the process, the player is required to declare himself healthy or report any issues. The vast majority of players declare themselves healthy, sign out, then leave. Most of them are just looking to move on to the next thing or team. Occasionally, an issue arises that needs to be checked by a physician and that is taken care of at this time as well. A player reporting an unknown issue when they are signing out because they are being released is always something that can raise eyebrows. However, most issues are benign and simply a player wanting something on record.As the person who oversaw the medical sign in/out process for many of my years in the league, I had my own way to deal with things. Most guys got a handshake, a “Good luck and let us know if we can do anything for you.”Others, who were more beloved or had been with the team longer, got hugs and long goodbyes making sure we all had each other’s numbers and business cards for staying in contact down the road.To be sure, not everyone is happy about it. I’ve seen it all. Players crying Larry Johnson Jersey , yelling, fuming, refusing to sign anything. The reality is that they will no longer be with the team no matter the behavior and most just need/want to vent to someone. Almost everyone over the years handled the process with dignity and respect of others. Those that didn’t, I typically didn’t ever see in the league again, probably showing more about their character than their playing ability in the first place. On the flip side of things, it is a time to welcome new faces on to your team. Whether it is a trade or free agent from another team, the roster is truly not set until the first practice of the regular season, sometimes even later in the week. Constant movement during this period sees players cross the country on late notice in order to make it to practice for their new team after just playing a game for another team days ago. After the roster has been initially set over the final preseason weekend, it is extremely common to have several changes in Week 1 prior to the game. Unless your team plays on the first Thursday, there are 10 days to tinker with the roster before they play. Some players that have been released will be back with the practice squad also, so signing them out and then back in is a reality and a formality. By the end of the weekend Joe Montana Jersey , everyone must have a spot – active roster, practice squad, IR, PUP/NFI.Going forward, this is your team. It will change and it will evolve, but the first step in the process is to go from 90 to 53—many guys saying goodbye, or maybe just goodbye for now.Aaron Borgmann is the founder of Borgmann Rehab Solutions. He spent 12 years in the NFL as an assistant athletic trainer and physical therapist before joining Arrowhead Pride. Andy Reid talked for the first time since reports surfaced 11 days ago that authorities were investigating receiver Tyreek Hill for two instances of child abuse. The Chiefs coach said he has not talked to Hill since on the advice of the Chiefs’ counsel. The Chiefs moved quickly in November to cut Kareem Hunt after a video discredited the running back’s claim to the team that he had no involvement in an altercation with a woman at a Cleveland hotel earlier in the year. The team is patiently waiting for more information on Hill’s situation.“If we’re going to make a move like [cutting Hunt], it’s pretty well thought out, and so we try to gather the information and then go from there,” Reid said.More than once, Reid said he knew nothing new on Hill’s situation and that the team was “just letting it take its course.”“Did I expect it to happen? I don’t know what happened exactly Len Dawson Jersey ,” Reid said. “I mean, I don’t know. That’s what we’re trying to figure out.”The Chiefs have had internal discussions about various courses of action they will take based on the outcome of the investigation.“You always want to make sure everybody’s OK, and then let it run its course and make sure you let that part happen,” Reid said. “. . .As a coach, or a human, you’re going to have things that happen. You deal with it.”

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

Two illegal hits cost David Onyemata more than he made for playing in New Orleans' season opener.The Saints defensive tackle was fined $40 Cory Littleton Jersey ,108 by the NFL on Friday for two roughing-the-passer calls — $20,054 for each of the penalties — in a 48-40 loss to Tampa Bay last Sunday.The first came in the third quarter on an incomplete pass by Ryan Fitzpatrick, when Onyemata violated the new rule requiring defensive players to avoid putting their full weight on quarterbacks. The second occurred during a 36-yard touchdown catch by DeSean Jackson in the fourth quarter when Onyemata made contact with Fitzpatrick's helmet.Onyemata, in his third NFL season, makes a base salary of $630,000 this season — or $39,375 per game.Onyemata was one of several players fined $20,054 for roughing the passer in the league's opening weekend Dakota Allen Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , joining the Los Angeles Rams' Aaron Donald, Minnesota's Sheldon Richardson, Atlanta's Grady Jarrett and Dallas' DeMarcus Lawrence.New England safety Duron Harmon was fined $26,739 for his hit on Houston wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, which drew a flag for unnecessary roughness.Los Angeles Rams cornerback Marcus Peters has to pay $13,369 for his excessive celebration after returning an interception during which he jumped backward into the end zone and grabbed his crotch against Oakland.Pittsburgh cornerback Artie Burns was fined $13,369 for removing his helmet and slamming it to the turf after a scuffle with Cleveland wide receiver Jarvis Landry.Miami defensive end Andre Branch was docked $10,026 by the league for taunting after a blindside block of Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan Los Angeles Rams Jerseys 2019 , who suffered a concussion on the play. After an interception of Marcus Mariota, Reshad Jones was returning down the sideline in the third quarter when Lewan was pursuing him. But Branch hit Lewan from the left side and knocked him to the ground, causing a shoving match between the teams.Branch was later caught by television cameras shouting, "Body bag!" at Lewan as the offensive lineman left the field and headed to the locker room. Branch was not flagged for the hit, but was penalized for taunting — as was teammate Jordan Phillips, who was also fined $10,026.Cincinnati safety Shawn Williams was fined the same amount for his late hit on Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck. He was ejected from the game for the penalty.Also fined $10,026 by the NFL on Friday were Jets rookie Parry Nickerson (taunting) Discount Dakota Allen Jersey , Baltimore's Matt Judon (unnecessary roughness), Buffalo's Dion Dawkins (unnecessary roughness) and Jacksonville's Yannick Ngakoue (facemask) and Cam Robinson (unnecessary roughness). Vikings COO Kevin Warren soon will become the Commissioner of the Big 10. In a profile of Warren, Daniel Kaplan of TheAthethic.com raises this question: Could Warren be the next Commissioner of the NFL?Kaplan, citing unnamed sources with “close ties to the NFL,” writes that those persons view Warren as a “future Commisioner,” and that his upcoming Big 10 job will “be only a steppingstone, not a final stop.”Consultant Marc Ganis, who has close ties to the NFL Dakota Allen Jersey nfl draft , tells Kaplan that Warren is “one of those handful of people that are in the NFL right now that could very well be considered as a future Commissioner.”Warren’s name has indeed come up regarding the possibility of becoming the next Commissioner. Two other names that also have emerged on the grapevine include NFL Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy & Growth Officer Chris Halpin and, somewhat surprisingly, Hall of Fame defensive back Aeneas Williams.Williams was spotted at the annual meetings in Arizona, and that’s where the chatter of Williams potentially succeeding Goodell first surfaced.The NFL seems to be intent on naming a Commissioner with extensive football ties and history, in lieu of finding a professional CEO who may have no prior connection to the NFL. As the league grows, so does the importance of considering options beyond the shell of people with experience working for, in, or around the NFL and one or more of its teams. While it’s important to have people who know the business in key positions of leadership Los Angeles Rams Jerseys Stitched , the ultimate leader of the game need not be someone who has spent decades, years, months, or even weeks working in or playing football.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

MIAMI DOLPHINS (6-10)OPEN CAMP: July 26 Xavien Howard Jersey , Davie, FloridaLAST YEAR: Dolphins regressed in second season under Adam Gase. As rookie coach he led them to 10 wins and playoff berth, but in 2017 Dolphins never recovered from quarterback Ryan Tannehill‘s season-ending knee injury in training camp, and deteriorated into wildly inconsistent, undisciplined team. They led to start fourth quarter in only two games and were outscored by 112 points, fourth worst in NFL. Owner Stephen Ross decided to keep organization’s core leadership intact, but Gase and executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum may need turnaround to keep jobs beyond this year.More Miami Dolphins newsDolphins DB Minkah Fitzpatrick will play vs. Patriots despite trade requestDolphins will try to regroup for Patriots after drubbing at the hands of RavensDolphins can’t contain Lamar Jackson, lose big at homeDolphins versatile offensive lineman Jesse Davis signs extension through 2022Dolphins trade Laremy Tunsil, Kenny Stills to Texans for draft picksIMPORTANT ADDITIONS: S Minkah Fitzpatrick, G Josh Sitton, DE Robert Quinn, WR Danny Amendola, WR Albert Wilson, C Daniel Kilgore, TE Mike Gesicki, RB Frank Gore, RB Kalen Ballage, QB Brock Osweiler.IMPORTANT LOSSES: DT Ndamukong Suh, WR Jarvis Landry http://www.thedolphinslockerroom.com/au … lan-jersey , C Mike Pouncey, G Jermon Bushrod, K Cody Parkey, QB Jay Cutler, QB Matt Moore, TE Julius Thomas, LB Lawrence Timmons.CAMP NEEDS: Dolphins will count on two players with no NFL experience to assume significant roles. Linebacker Raekwon McMillan, their most promising rookie in 2017, is back after knee injury in first exhibition game ended his season. Fitzpatrick is expected to make immediate impact after being taken with 11th overall pick in April. Most of all, Gase needs to keep Tannehill healthy as quarterback comes back from two serious injuries to left knee since December 2016.EXPECTATIONS: Tannehill became starter as rookie in 2012 and has still never taken postseason snap, and there’s plenty of reason to doubt that will change this year. While he returns, Dolphins bid adieu to three players with Pro Bowl resumes in Suh, Landry and Pouncey. There were financial reasons, and Gase also wanted change in culture. He believes addition of such veterans as Gore, Amendola and Quinn represents upgrade, but oddsmakers disagree. They project Dolphins to again be six-win team. DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Moments after becoming a Miami Dolphin, defensive tackle Christian Wilkins nearly sacked Roger Goodell.Wilkins gleefully leaped into the commissioner on the draft stage in Nashville, Tennessee. The Dolphins hope it was the first of many NFL celebrations by Wilkins Womens Jakeem Grant Jersey , a 315-pound lineman from Clemson with an outsize personality to match.“Very charismatic,” Miami general manager Chris Grier said with a chuckle. “He told us it was the best decision we ever made when we picked him.”A rebuilding project has left the Dolphins perceived as the league’s lightweights, and to help change that, they used the 13th overall pick on the bulky Wilkins.The Dolphins went 7-9 in 2018, and after shedding numerous veterans from the roster this offseason, they’re widely expected to be worse this year under new coach Brian Flores. Their odds for winning the Super Bowl are 250 to 1, longest in the NFL.Even so, Wilkins was thrilled to be Miami-bound, as Goodell could attest after being targeted with a flying shoulder bump.“He wasn’t too upset about it,” Wilkins said with a laugh. “He wished me good luck. I’m surprised he didn’t hit back or anything. I did get him kind of hard. My shoulder is actually hurting a little bit from how hard I bumped him, but I was just so excited.”Miami passed on Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins, and instead attempted to shore up a defense that last year allowed 6,257 yards, most in franchise history.The draft was deep in defensive linemen, and some projected Wilkins as a top-10 pick. Last year the first-team All-American had 15 tackles for a loss and six sacks.The Dolphins had an extensive scouting report on Wilkins because their new defensive line coach, Marion Hobby, was his position coach at Clemson.“A very smart, versatile player,” Grier said. “Highly productive. I love the size Mark Duper Jersey , the athletic ability. For us it was an easy decision.”Wilkins helped the Tigers win two national titles, and became their first scholarship player to earn a degree in 2 1/2 years. He’s optimistic he can excel with the Dolphins.“I know about the history — guys like Dan Marino and Jason Taylor who put on that uniform,” he said. “I want to work hard so I can get to the point where I can be considered great like those guys.”While Wilkins was in a celebratory mood, he turned reflective when asked about his grandfather, killed in 2011 when a SWAT team rifle accidentally discharged during a raid.“My grandfather meant everything to me,” Wilkins said. “He was the most influential person in my life.”In opting for a lineman, Miami has still used a first-round pick on a quarterback only once since 1983. Well-traveled veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick signed with the Dolphins in March, and they’ve acknowledged he’s merely a caretaker, but the draft wasn’t deep at the position.The Dolphins might pursue Arizona quarterback Josh Rosen, who is on the trade market after the Cardinals used the No. 1 overall pick to take quarterback Kyler Murray of Oklahoma. Arizona took Rosen with the 10th overall pick last year, and the former UCLA star had a rocky rookie season.“We’re investigating all avenues,” Grier said.With a multitude of needs still to be addressed, the Dolphins have one pick in the second round and another in the third round Friday. They’ll be in the market for an edge rusher and right tackle, among other positions.“Where we are, we’ve got to build the roster up and create depth and competition everywhere,” Grier said.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

The New England Patriots went into Week 8 against the toughest opponent they have faced since the Buffalo Bills four weeks earlier. The Cleveland Browns presented a tougher roster challenge than New England had faced all year long with two studs at wide receiver in Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry Kendarius Webster Jersey NFL Jersey , and a rising star at running back in Nick Chubb.For the most part, Cleveland did what it had done all year. The team ran the ball well with Chubb, who had 131 yards on 20 carries, and it threw the ball to Landry and Beckham who combined for 117 receiving yards. But, of course, that came with plenty of mistakes that cost the Browns any chance at winning this game.On offense, meanwhile, New England continues to try find its identity as a team that no longer has their trusty fullback and center and has dealt with all kinds of changes at receiver throughout the season. However, the Patriots ultimately made enough big plays in the passing game against man coverage that led them to victory.Let’s go to the film room and look at my three takeaways from this game.1. Cleveland wanted to take away the Patriots’ short/intermediate passing gameCleveland did three things to limit New England’s passing game and all three carried out this overall theme that the Browns prioritized taking away the short stuff, even if meant giving up the deep ball:Press man coverageDouble coverage against James White/Julian Edelman when in manAggressive safety play in both man and zonePress man coverageOf New England’s 36 pass attempts on Sunday, I counted 21 (58%) that the Browns countered with man coverage, and it was mostly press man across the board with only one safety to help deep. On those snaps, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady went 9 of 21 for 195 yards. While that yards number is high, the 9-of-21 stat is a bit more accurate of a representation of how the Patriots consistently struggled against man coverage and the Browns’ aggressive defensive strategy.Cleveland got up on the line and jammed the receivers, disrupting their releases and throwing the timing off of their routes. This is somewhat of a recurring theme this year, as the Patriots are currently not the same man-beating offense without the automatic mismatch, Rob Gronkowski. However, with Mohamed Sanu getting more comfortable in this offense and N’Keal Harry expected to return from injured reserve, the passing game should have more success in beating man coverage going forward. Double coverage against James White/Julian Edelman when in manWhen the Browns were in man coverage, they also paid extra attention to James White and sometimes Julian Edelman underneath. Usually, White is the quick and easy option versus man, so the Browns countered with a double team on him or a safety who was much less of an athletic mismatch than having a linebacker guard the running back. With Phillip Dorsett and the recently acquired Sanu being the only two other receivers on the field, the Browns seemed to not fear these two beating them deep, although they eventually would.Aggressive safety play in both man and zoneThe Browns also had their safeties play shallow and jump routes in order to carry out this defensive strategy. The Browns played a zone scheme in which both safeties came down aggressively, they played man with no help deep, they did all kinds of things in combination with a strong pass rush that led to a lot of incompletions and throwaways from Tom Brady. These three tactics combined with the good pass rush mentioned above meant that even if something opened up deep late, which it often did, Brady had either gotten rid of the football already or was scrambling out of the pocket where he couldn’t see the whole field.Fortunately Kendarius Webster Jersey NFL Draft , it wasn’t all bad in the passing game, as those nine completions New England’s quarterback had against man coverage went for 195 yards, so the Patriots did ultimately get some huge plays against man coverage, especially in the second half — something that was expected given how aggressively the Browns were playing. Brady got the time in the pocket needed to make these throws that he didn’t get for most of the night, and Dorsett, Sanu, Edelman, and even tight end Benjamin Watson all had big plays against man that sparked the Patriots’ scoring drives. 2. New England really focused on getting to the edge on the groundNew England continues to try to find its identity in the running game in 2019. Last season, the team relied on the fantastic blocking of Rob Gronkowski at tight end and James Develin at fullback combined with a strong and healthy offensive line to pound the rock consistently and move the chains. This year, the Patriots are of course without Gronkowski and a fullback for the whole season, while also having a banged-up offensive line.Naturally, this ground game is not the same it was in 2018. However, that doesn’t mean the Patriots are not still producing. The since-released Eric Tomlinson actually fit in quite well at fullback, and the Patriots are running the ball to the edges more. Against Cleveland, New England’s runners finished with 27 carries. 18 of them were variations of an outside zone or toss play, two of the most wide runs out there (one was a jet sweep too).It wasn’t a great day on the ground (27 total attempts for 79 yards equals 2.9 yards per carry) but it was enough to get the win and move the chains on a few scoring drives:3. Big plays on defense created by the front sevenThe Browns’ mistakes on offense were really what lost the game for them. They obviously had those three ugly turnovers to start the contest and then continued to get penalty after penalty that put them in third-and-way-too-longs against this Patriots defense — one that feasts on third downs: the Browns had 13 penalties for 85 yards, and that took them out of so many drives.However, these penalties were not all just self-inflicted mistakes. The Patriots’ defensive force certainly caused a lot of the calls going against Cleveland, especially the front seven. Kyle Van Noy, Lawrence Guy, John Simon, Dont’a Hightower, Jamie Collins Sr. and Adam Butler all made great plays up front that collapsed and broke down the Browns’ weak offensive line. Let’s take a look at some of the big plays on defense created in the run game where the Patriots set the edge well and got great penetration up the gut to create negative plays for Cleveland:In the passing game, the Patriots used stunts to create good pass rushing angles. Adam Butler continues to excel in these rushes by using his quickness and strong hands. Kyle Van Noy, meanwhile, also got a great rush against the Browns’ backup left tackle, Justin McCray. Van Noy also continues to grow and excel as a prototypical Bill Belichick hybrid linebacker who can set the edge, rush the passer Kendarius Webster Jersey Buffalo Bills Jersey , and cover in space. ConclusionThis was a great test for New England overall, as the team hadn’t been playing very tough opponents so far this season. The Patriots handled the Browns’ star power on offense, finally made Odell Beckham Jr. complain about his lack of targets, and made some big plays against a strong secondary. Most of the talk about this historic defense has been on the impressive play of the Patriots’ secondary, headlined by shutdown cornerback Stephon Gilmore, so I wanted to highlight how this front seven also creates havoc for opposing offenses.Overall, the rush and coverage go hand-in-hand: the front seven collapses the pocket quickly with stunts and screaming linebackers off the edge, which allows the Patriots to play aggressive defenses that lock their talented defensive backs up in one-on-one situations in Cover 1 and Cover 0 looks where they can plaster on the opposing receivers as good as anyone in the league. On offense, the Patriots are still trying to find out who they are and are struggling a bit on the ground. However, Tom Brady and Josh McDaniels seem to always adjust and find ways to attack whatever the defense is trying to take away in the passing game, and the running game should improve over time as the offensive linemen — see: Isaiah Wynn — get healthier and more experienced playing as a unit.On to Baltimore... Who should teams be looking out for in the second and third rounds?"The New England Patriots added wide receiver N’Keal Harry in the first round and they have five more picks scheduled for Friday. It would be a shock if the Patriots didn’t make some trades, but the point is that New England is well positioned to take advantage of all the talent still on the draft board.So without further ado, here are the top players still on the board, based on Arif Hasan’s Consensus Big Board.Top 15 TalentsFlorida OT Jawaan Taylor: Previously a top 10 prospect, Taylor has slipped due to medical red flags about his knees and back.Ole Miss WR D.K. Metcalf: Metcalf is an athletic phenom, but he didn’t produce in college and his route tree is limited. He’s a high-upside selection.First Round TalentsLSU CB Greedy Williams, Washington CB Byron Murphy: Both could have gone in the top 20 as they’re both elite cornerback prospects, but only one cornerback (Deandre Baker to the New York Giants) went in the first round. There are a ton of defensive backs still on the board.Delaware S Nasir Adderley, Florida S Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Both safeties were potential first round picks, too. Don’t be shocked if any of these four defensive backs are taken by the Patriots in the second round.Oklahoma OL Cody Ford, Kansas State OL Dalton Risner, Texas A&M OL Erik McCoy: All were fringe first round picks, all should come off the board pretty quickly to start the second round.Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown, Iowa State WR Hakeem Butler, South Carolina WR Deebo Samuel: I would have been happy if the Patriots selected any of these players. They are likely to come off the board quickly to start the second round.Alabama TE Irv Smith: Smith is the best tight end on the board and the last of the big three prospects. I wouldn’t expect him to stick around long.Missouri QB Drew Lock: It’s clear that teams weren’t high on quarterbacks in this class. Still, Bill Belichick loves a good SEC player with production, so maybe the Patriots could make a move to add him early on Friday.Second Round ProspectsThere were only three players ranked outside the top 50 that were drafted in the first round: Washington OT Kaleb McGary, Texas Christian DL L.J. Collier Color Rush Kendarius Webster Jersey , and Alabama State OT Tytus Howard.Temple CB Rock Ya-Sin, Michigan State CB Justin Layne, Notre Dame CB Julian Love, Penn State CB Amani Oruwariye, Clemson CB Trayvon Mullen, Central Michigan CB Sean Bunting: There are a ton of cornerbacks still on the board...Virginia S Juan Thornhill, Washington S Taylor Rapp, Alabama S Deionte Thompson, Iowa S Amani Hooker: ...and a ton of safeties, too. I would expect the Patriots to get one of these top talents on Friday.Michigan DE Chase Winovich, Florida DE Jachai Polite, Louisiana Tech DE Jaylon Ferguson, Boston College DE Zach Allen, Ohio State DT Dre’Mont Jones, Alabama LB Mack Wilson: There isn’t much depth in the defensive front seven, though. If the Patriots want to add any of these players, they’ll have to do it early.Mississippi State OL Elgton Jenkins, Mississippi OL Greg Little: The offensive line talent is thinning out and only project players will be left pretty quickly. The Patriots would have to move quickly for either of these players.Iowa State RB David Montgomery, Penn State RB Miles Sanders, Memphis Darrell Henderson, Alabama RB Damien Harris: The Patriots don’t have a need for a running back, but it would be helpful for the sake of the draft board if other teams selected these players early on and pushed other talent down to the Patriots...NC State WR Kelvin Harmon, Ohio State WR Parris Campbell, Stanford WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside: ...the same could be said about these wide receivers. Maybe the Patriots will have started a run at receiver (fingers crossed) and other talent will be available for New England.Texas A&M TE Jace Sternberger: Perhaps Sternberger will be on the Patriots’ radar if Alabama’s Smith is off the board.

Last week, it was Jamaal Charles. This week it’s Derrick Johnson. Johnson was at the Chiefs’ facility on Wednesday.“I’m very fortunate to be drafted to the Chiefs in 2005,” Johnson says in the video. “Dick Vermeil—he actually told me, ‘We don’t have a high enough pick to pick you up.’ I was thinking the same thing but little did I know how it works in the draft, and at 15, I was there, waiting for Kansas City to pick me.”The Chiefs selected Johnson, and he played with the franchise for 13 years. The video shows Chiefs head coach Andy Reid signing Johnson to the one-day deal.“For the Chiefs to roll out the red carpet for me, it was pretty special,” Johnson said. “It just reminds me of what I’ve done here.It means a lot for me to come back, to sign a one-day contract, to retire as a Chief. Playing in this league for 14 years has been an honor. It’s one of those things where you can look back and be proud of what you did.”The final huddleReid escorted Johnson to the practice field, where he greeted the coaching staff, GM Brett Veach and new defensive end Frank Clark.After practice, Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo brought Johnson to the middle of the huddle.“Let me just say this: this is Derrick Johnson Chris Jones Jersey , you guys know played here for a long time,” Spagnuolo told the group. “First-round draft pick—15th pick. Four Pro Bowls, Right?”“Two All-Pro seasons,” Johnson said.“I’m going to get all of it,” Spagnuolo said, as the players laughed. “Two All-Pros, right? 14 interceptions. Leading tackler for the Chiefs. 1,151 tackles.”Then it was Johnson’s turn to speak to the team.“I wasn’t expecting to speak, but being here for 13 years—man, this is a great opportunity for y’all to do something big,” he said. “Big time. It’s a good time to be a Chief—I’ll tell you that right now. It’s a good time to be a Chief. And there’s a lot of new energy out here, especially with having a new defensive coordinator, so y’all go get them, man. Make sure y’all take advantage of your opportunities, especially during this time, during the offseason. Make sure you work on something when you get out on the field. That’s how you get better. Look at film, get your corrective criticism or whatnot, come on the field and work on something. Have something to work on every time you get out on the field—one thing to work on—that’s how you get better. It goes fast Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey , man. It goes fast, so take advantage, man.”The Chiefs then let Johnson break down one, final huddle. Now retired, Johnson ends the video by saying he is shifting his life’s focus to his children, though he has expressed an interest in coaching in the past.Something tells me he will be back. OAKLAND, Calif. — Tyreek Hill streaking downfield for big receptions from Patrick Mahomes figured to be a major part of Kansas City‘s passing offense this year. The Raiders were counting on technician Antonio Brown to get open on intermediate and deep balls to provide a needed spark in Oakland.When these two AFC West rivals meet Sunday in the second game of the season in Oakland, they both will need to figure out how to thrive without their most dangerous receiving options.“I’m big on next guy up,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “We’ve done that over the years and so I expect the next guys to step up and play. Nobody is alike, but most of the guys at this level have strengths, and so you play to their strengths and then you keep coaching them and teaching them to make their things that maybe they’re not as strong better. But when you are putting your game plan together, you play to your strengths.”Hill was sidelined by a broken collarbone in a season-opening 40-26 win at Jacksonville. Sammy Watkins stepped up to fill that void last week with nine catches for 198 yards and three touchdowns. Second-round pick Mecole Hardman also figures to carry a heavier load this week.The Raiders did just fine in last week’s 24-16 win over Denver two days after releasing Brown following weeks of turmoil and missed practices. Tyrell Williams had six catches for 105 yards and a touchdown, showing he has the skills to be the No. 1 receiver the Raiders thought he could be when they made him their top target in free agency even before making the trade for Brown.“It’s definitely an opportunity I’ve been excited for,” Williams said. “My second year in the league when Keenan Allen had gotten hurt, I kind of was the No. 1 receiver that year (for the Chargers). I kind of just went unnoticed, I guess. Just getting this opportunity and being able to showcase this is exciting.”Tight end Darren Waller, whose career has been hampered by substance abuse issues, had seven catches for 70 yards and proved to be a matchup nightmare for Denver’s defense.WORKHORSE BACKOne of the big questions surrounding running back Josh Jacobs after the Raiders drafted him 24th overall was how he’d handle the load of a featured back in the NFL after being a part-time player at Alabama. Jacobs had more than 15 carries in a game just twice in college but raced past that mark in his NFL debut when he ran 23 times for 85 yards and two TDs and caught a 28-yard pass. He became the first player since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2001 to gain at least 100 yards from scrimmage and score two rushing touchdowns in his debut.“It was just something to show durability Armani Watts Jersey ,” he said. “That I can take 20 carries a game and still come out and be full.”OPPORTUNISTIC DSince Reid took over as coach in Kansas City in 2013, the Chiefs lead the NFL with 26 defensive touchdowns. No opponent has been victimized more than the Raiders, who have given up four of those scores, including two thrown by Derek Carr in 2015 and last season. Carr has thrown nine career interceptions against the Chiefs, his most against any opponent.BLIND SIDEThe Raiders saw big improvement from second-year left tackle Kolton Miller in the opener. After allowing an NFL-worst 14 sacks as a rookie, according to Sports Info Solutions, Miller completely shut down Denver’s Bradley Chubb last week. He gets another tough test this week against Frank Clark, who had 2 1/2 sacks against Oakland last year when he was with Seattle and faced Miller on a gimpy knee.“He’s just stronger, he’s more experienced, he’s healthy,” coach Jon Gruden said. “Those are three things that have taken his game to another level, and he’s got to continue to prove it every week.”END OF ERAThis game could be the final one played with infield dirt across the field. What once was a common sight in the era of multipurpose stadiums is now almost a relic as the Coliseum is the only remaining stadium used by NFL and baseball teams. The Raiders’ next scheduled game in Oakland isn’t until Nov. 3, after the end of the World Series, so the dirt will be gone for the final five home games of the season; they have a home game in London. The Raiders are set to move to Las Vegas next season, where dirt won’t be an issue.“It hurts. It hurts tackling and falling on that dirt,” Raiders safety Karl Joseph said. “But that’s part of who we are, the Raiders. I don’t think I’ll miss falling on that dirt too much.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

Practically every member of the Los Angeles Rams has a favorite story about Aaron Donald‘s feats of ridiculous athleticism.Michael Brockers loved the moment at Carolina in 2016 when Donald beat the Panthers‘ left guard and launched himself like Superman Eric Dickerson Jersey , swallowing up Cam Newton while airborne.Nickell Robey-Coleman preferred the game at San Francisco this season when Donald shredded a double-team and sacked C.J. Beathard — not by grabbing him, but by shoving the 49ers‘ center into his own quarterback.“Aaron can do things you didn’t know were possible,” said Rams defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, no stranger to improbable feats himself.Donald is the NFL’s current sacks champion, the only unanimous All-Pro and a probable two-time league Defensive Player of the Year. But Los Angeles’ powerful defensive tackle has one more daunting task in the Super Bowl.Donald and the Rams must figure out how to pressure Tom Brady, who completely stumped the New England Patriots‘ first two playoff opponents.The Chargers and Chiefs never sacked the 41-year-old superstar while he sat comfortably behind his stellar offensive line and picked apart their defenses for 691 yards passing, completing 71.1 percent of his throws.Donald, who set an NFL record for sacks by an interior lineman with 20½ this season, believes Los Angeles (15-3) can do what the Chargers and Chiefs couldn’t.“We’ll get to him, but we have to stay patient and don’t get frustrated,” Donald said. “We’ve got a great secondary that will do its job and make sure he doesn’t have easy throws. If he has to hold onto the ball Marshall Faulk Jersey , we’ll have our chances. We just have to go get him.”The Rams have been assembling the tools for this job all year long.In the spring, they signed the imposing Suh to a $14 million deal. They also acquired Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters, two elite cornerbacks who can create chances for their pass rush.They gave a six-year, $135 million contract extension to Donald in late August, making their best player happy after two offseason holdouts. He responded with the best season of his stellar career.Los Angeles then acquired edge rusher Dante Fowler from Jacksonville in late October, adding a speedy outside pass-rushing threat to a roster that lacked it. Fowler has 1½ sacks and six quarterback hits in the Rams’ past four games — including the biggest hit of LA’s season, forcing Drew Brees‘ overtime interception in the NFC championship game.Fowler never became a superstar with the Jaguars, but he loves being a role player for LA.“I knew I was going to fit in with this defense because of A.D. and Suh,” Fowler said. “They make it easy for everybody else on the defense. They cause so many problems.”Donald, Suh and Brockers are a formidable defensive line, and their teamwork has improved each month. Although Donald doesn’t have a sack in the Rams’ two postseason games Nolan Cromwell Jersey , he draws double-teams that free up Suh, who has 1½ sacks and four quarterback hits in an outstanding postseason.Even if Donald and Suh win their individual matchups on the line, Brady’s quick decisions and swift release make him awfully difficult for anyone to touch. He was sacked just 21 times in the regular season.Although the Chiefs tied for the NFL lead with 52 sacks in the regular season, they hit Brady just once and never sacked him in the AFC title game. A week earlier, the Chargers’ dynamic pass-rushing duo of Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa never got to him.Even if the Rams can’t sack Brady, they must attempt to get him moving before his receivers’ routes develop. That’s an area in which Donald specializes: Although he faces more double-teams than just about any defensive player, he consistently penetrates the opponents’ backfield regardless.“There’s nothing he can’t do in regards to disrupting a game,” Rams coach Sean McVay said.When Brady doesn’t face quick pressure, he is typically able to lacerate opposing defenses with short passes. Just ask the Chargers and Chiefs.“That’s crazy,” Brockers said when told about Brady’s sack-free postseason. “He’s the G.O.A.T., but he’s just another quarterback. He’s going to try to avoid the pressure. It’s our job as D-linemen to get to him Kurt Warner Jersey , so we’re putting the pressure on ourselves to try to influence him and try to get him off his spot.”The Rams believe they have the players for the job, and they also might have the scheme.Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ 3-4 defense stopped Brady in the 2015 AFC title game. Phillips’ Broncos — including Talib — hit Brady 17 times and made him miserable while going 27 of 56 in the Patriots’ 20-18 loss.Fowler has studied video of that game for years now. He would love to play the role of Von Miller, who got 2½ sacks and an interception.Phillips isn’t getting into any specifics of the Rams’ plan against Brady, camouflaging his sharp mind behind his usual geniality.“Unfortunately for me, I get older, but Tom Brady doesn’t,” the 71-year-old Phillips said. “You don’t stop great offenses. You just try to slow them down.” Darrell Henderson has gotten late first-round hype, could the Rams really be in the market for a running back at that spot?" />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteTurf Show Timesa Los Angeles Rams communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpSectionsLibraryMastheadCommunity GuidelinesNFL OddsStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteSections 2019 offseason2019 free agency2019 NFL DraftFull ArchiveLibrary 2019 NFL calendar2019 Rams regular season sched2019 Rams preseason schedMasthead Community Guidelines NFL Odds StubHub ✕Filed under:2019 NFL DraftMemphis Tigers RB Darrell Henderson visits Los Angeles RamsNew,21commentsDarrell Henderson has gotten late first-round hype, could the Rams really be in the market for a running back at that spot?CDTShareTweetShareShareMemphis Tigers RB Darrell Henderson visits Los Angeles RamsBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsIf you’re part of the “RB Todd Gurley is completely fine” group, close your eyes Joe Namath Jersey , because this one could confuse you. As we continue along with the pre-draft visits, the Los Angeles Rams brought in Memphis Tigers RB Darrell Henderson for a visit, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapaport:The head-scratching part of this visit isn’t that the Rams think they could fortify their running back room, it’s that Henderson has been hyped up as a potential first-round draft selection. Now, to preface any other information, I’m confident the Rams will not select a running back in the first round, or even with their top pick in the event of a trade down.Regardless, Henderson racked up 431 rushing attempts, 3,545 rushing yards, 36 touchdowns Cooper Kupp Jersey , 63 receptions, 758 receiving yards, and eight receiving touchdowns in three seasons at Memphis. NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein has the diminutive runner compared to former Atlanta Falcons RB and current San Francisco 49ers RB, Tevin Coleman.This is a strange development for a team who was telling us Todd Gurley was completely fine and healthy this entire time, though it could also lead to nothing at all. Only time will tell.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

Is this the year that the Bengals find a replacement for Andy Dalton?"Draft week is here Cheap Germaine Pratt Jersey , and the Bengals are about to make their first selection of the Zac Taylor era.Andy Dalton and find his eventual replacement? ESPN draft expert Todd McShay is hearing that there’s a real chance Cincinnati goes with a quarterback in the first round. He also mentions Devin Bush as a target if the Bengals address linebacker. Obviously, you need to take this with a big grain of salt, as this is the time of the draft process when false rumors run rampant. Heck Germaine Pratt Jersey Womens , it wouldn’t be a surprise if this were a rumor that the Bengals started. They’d probably like to see several quarterbacks drafted in the top 10 to push a guy like Ed Olver or Devin White to them at 11. But Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins is a great prospect who is worthy of being the 11th pick. If he’s still there when Cincinnati goes on the clock, it sounds like we can’t rule out Haskins being the pick. Four more spots in the 2019 NFL Draft order were set with the weekend’s results, and the Raiders now know exactly where they’ll be making their three first-round picks.The Eagles slotted into the 25th spot in the order after yesterday’s loss Germaine Pratt Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , followed by the Colts, Cowboys and Chargers.The final four picks will go to the losers of next week’s conference championship games, then the Super Bowl loser and the champion.And since the Cowboys traded their pick to the Raiders in the Amari Cooper deal Germaine Pratt Jersey 2019 , the Raiders are now sitting on the fourth, 24th (from the Bears in the Khalil Mack deal), and 27th in the first round.That’s a lot of valuable real estate for a team that doesn’t have a home at the moment Germaine Pratt Jersey Mens , and a good start for coach Jon Gruden and new General Manager Mike Mayock to begin a long rebuild.Here’s a look at the draft order as it stands after the divisional round games:1. Cardinals 3-132. 49ers 4-123. Jets 4-124. Raiders 4-125. Buccaneers 5-116. Giants 5-117. Jaguars 5-118. Lions 6-109. Bills 6-1010. Broncos 6-1011. Bengals 6-1012. Packers 6-9-113. Dolphins 7-914.

In 2016, he landed Marvin Jones Jr.. In 2017, the additions of T.J. Lang and Rick Wagner bolstered the offensive line. After striking out on all the big names in 2018, he was back at it again this year, landing a huge free agent haul that will shape the team this upcoming season.Trey Flowers and Justin Coleman can take the defense to an elite level, while signing Jesse James could have landed the Lions the perfect TE2 to play alongside rookie first-round selection T.J. Hockenson.ESPN took notice of Detroit’s stand out offseason, as the gave them an “Above average” grade when they rated every team’s offseason to this point on Tuesday.Beat writer Michael Rothstein said:He also mentioned the still existing gap at CB2, though Womens Theo Riddick Jersey , as it still does seem worrying that Detroit does not have a second starting caliber corner entering training camp.The only NFL team given a better rating than Detroit was the Cleveland Browns.This is now the third differing opinion ESPN writers have given the Lions’ offseason. One writer believes only two teams had a worse offseason than Detroit, while another thinks the Lions are the most improved team this offseason. USA Today’s Nate Davis took stock of all 12 NFL franchises yet to win a Super Bowl title, and ranked them by their likelihood to land their first Vince Lombardi trophy next February. Davis does not seem very high on the Lions, though, ranking them 11th — only ahead of the Cincinnati Bengals. SB Nation put out something very similar, with similar results. Lions Twitter was set on fire Monday when the official NFL Rewind account brought a 2006 game where former Detroit quarterback Josh McCown took some snaps at slot receiver back into our collective memory. Pro Football Focus’ Lions account added some additional context to the video on Tuesday, highlighting McCown’s surprisingly good play when he did line up as a wide out.247 Sports’ Kevin Boilard listed 10 former college stars who are entering “now-or-never” NFL seasons in 2019. Former Detroit Lions running back and 2015 second-round draft pick Ameer Abdullah made the list. The running back was one of the best running backs in University of Nebraska history, but injuries and fumbles marred his time in Detroit. He was waived midway through the 2018 season and found a home as a Minnesota Viking.Abdullah did not feature much last season in Minneapolis Womens Matthew Stafford Jersey , mainly getting work on special teams. UStadium built an “All over 30” team on twitter, and Lions defensive tackle Damon Harrison made the cut.Harrison is listed as 31 years old, while he is only 30 at the moment. He does not turn 31 until November, but he still would qualify for the list anyways.Former Detroit Lions sixth-round pick Aaron Brown has been accused of striking his 11 year old daughter during a scuffle earlier this month in Texas, the NY Post’s Amanda Woods reports.Lions TE Luke Willson suffers knee injury vs. Buccaneers, will not return It’s unclear when it happened, but Detroit Lions tight end Luke Willson suffered a knee injury on Friday night and is questionable to return against the Buccaneers.Willson was presumed to be the Lions’ starter at tight end when signed this free agency, but he has had a fairly unassuming preseason. He has only caught one pass for three yards thus far Danny Amendola Jersey , and he did not have a single target in Friday night’s game. The severity of Willson’s injury is unknown, but the fact that he’s listed as questionable rather than out could be promising. For precautionary reasons, however, it’s unlikely that he’ll come back in the game.In Willson’s place, Hakeem Valles has been shining yet again. Through just over two quarters, Valles has three catches for 38 yards, all of which came working with the first-team offense. It’s looking more and more like Valles has a place on this 53-man roster. We’ll update this post as news comes in on Willson’s status. UPDATE: Willson has been downgraded to OUT:

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

HOUSTON (AP)The Houston Texans have lost five games in a row for the first time since 2013 Womens Natrell Jamerson Jersey , and as they prepare for their regular-season finale at Indianapolis they’re trying not to dwell on how disappointing this season has been or look too far ahead. Coach Bill O’Brien and his team are simply focused on trying to improve and end their skid this week. ”Neither one of us are going to the playoffs, but this is kind of like our playoff game – playoff game right here,” O’Brien said. ”Let’s see how we can finish the season and … see if that puts us ending on a good note heading into the offseason.” The Texans (4-11) failed to make the playoffs this season after winning the AFC South the past two seasons, and it’s the first time in O’Brien’s tenure that they’ll finish with a losing record after going 9-7 in each of his first three years in Houston. Though there’s little left to play for in this dreadful season marked by injuries to stars Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watt, O’Brien hopes his team will play for pride on Sunday and for the opportunity not to finish last in their division for the first time since going 2-14 in 2013. Houston is in third place in the division, one game ahead of the Colts (3-12). ”In the division, you don’t want to end up in last place,” O’Brien said. ”It’s very important to go out there and try to win this game and not be in last place, no doubt about it.” To do that the Texans will have to figure out a way to get their passing game going. Houston has struggled in that area since Watson was injured in early November, but things have gotten even worse in the two games since third-stringer T.J. Yates has taken over for Tom Savage. The Texans have managed just 13 points combined in the two games Yates has started. And their passing game, which was among the league’s best with Watson at the helm, has averaged just 105.5 yards a game in the past two weeks. However, O’Brien was quick to point out that Yates isn’t the only problem in Houston’s passing woes. ”There’s a lot that goes into playing that position and it’s not just him,” O’Brien said. ”It’s protection. It’s route-running. It’s his execution, his reads of the coverage, his ability to go from one side to the next as far as making the proper read within his progression. So, we’ll work on all those things and he’ll … work very, very hard to improve and we’ll get it better this week.” One encouraging sign from Monday’s loss to the Steelers was the improvement of the running game. The Texans finished with 176 yards rushing for their first 100-yard rushing game since running for 134 in their win over the Cardinals on Nov. 19. That effort was led by backup Alfred Blue, who had 16 carries for a season-high 108 yards. It was the first time this season Houston has had a 100-yard rusher as Lamar Miller has struggled in his second season with the Texans after running for 1,073 yards last season. The Texans will likely have to sign another quarterback this week to back up Yates after Taylor Heinicke sustained a concussion on Monday when he briefly took over when Yates was being evaluated for a concussion. O’Brien said he wasn’t sure of Heinicke’s status for this week on Monday and that they were discussing options if he can’t play. Though this season is very different from O’Brien’s first three with the Texans, he insists that he and his staff are approaching the last game the same way they have faced every week since he arrived here and they’re determined to turn things around on Sunday. ”The thing that’s key for our players and our coaches to understand is that we have to prepare and be ready to go on Sunday because that’s what our responsibility is as professional coaches and professional players, and that’s what we’re going to do,” he said. ”These guys are going to prepare hard Nick Martin Jersey White , they’re going to practice hard and we’ll go up there and try to find a way to win.” — No team wants to distance itself from last season — or even the previous year — more than the Cleveland Browns.They get a chance to prove all of those offseason maneuvers paid off when they host their archrivals, the Steelers, on Sunday.No, it’s not fair to fully judge Cleveland’s progress in the opener. It is tempting, though, considering how the roster has been revamped and the enthusiasm has been ramped up.“Honestly, I would rather not look back,” says Browns coach Hue Jackson, and why would he with a 1-31 record in charge? “I just feel really good about this group. We have to get ourselves ready to play. It is a big-time game this week. This is against the best team in our division. It is a huge game.”It also doesn’t hurt the Browns that Pittsburgh has been missing one of its best players, star running back and holdout Le’Veon Bell.Still, as Jackson notes, the Steelers have been the cream of the AFC North for a long time, while the Browns have been the downtrodden.Regardless of Bell’s status — James Conner is the backup — the Steelers have a dynamic offense thanks to receiver Antonio Brown, perhaps the NFL’s best player; quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, still a force in his 15th pro season; and a talented offensive line.“If we start off with James, I think we’ll be fine either way,” guard Ramon Foster says. “He’s a guy that’s made strides. He’s made us confident in him. So he gets the start, we roll with him. No disrespect to (Bell), we’ve got to move. This is a moving train.”The season opened Thursday night when the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles got past the Atlanta Falcons 18-12 in a sloppy, penalty-filled game.Jay Ajayi scored his second touchdown on an 11-yard run with 2:19 remaining, and the Eagles withstood a two-minute drive by Matt Ryan and the Falcons, with Julio Jones failing to come down with Ryan’s high pass on the final play from the 5-yard line.The game was marred by penalties, dropped passes DeAndre Hopkins Jersey , missed assignments and weak quarterbacking. Foles threw for 117 yards and an interception, and Ryan completed less than 50 percent of his passes. Neither threw for a touchdown.San Francisco at MinnesotaYes, quarterbacks get too much attention these days. Still, this is one game where they have to be the focal point.The Vikings spent about the entire budget of the state of Minnesota on Kirk Cousins after he played two seasons under the franchise tag in Washington. So while the return of rookie sensation (until he hurt his knee) Dalvin Cook to the backfield is quite intriguing, most eyes will be on how Cousins fares with far more talent around him.San Francisco was in QB purgatory a year ago, then pulled off an October deal for Jimmy Garoppolo. The youngster who hasn’t lost in seven career starts, got a huge contract, too. He’ll face one of the NFL’s toughest defenses in this one.New York Jets at Detroit, Monday nightOK, excuse us if, one more time, we concentrate on the quarterback. This one is Sam Darnold , the only member of the five first-round passers in this year’s draft who will get a start. He has poise, lots of arm talent and the ability to escape trouble.Of course, he’s also a J-E-T-S QB; the last true franchise guy they had was Joe Namath.“I know that just because I got named the starter doesn’t mean we won the game Monday night,” the Southern Cal product says. “It’s awesome and I’m really happy to be the starting quarterback, but I also know that I’ve got to go out there and do my job.”He’ll try to do it against new Lions coach Matt Patricia’s defensive acumen. Patricia comes from New England, so the pedigree is impressive.Los Angeles Rams at Oakland, Monday nightAnother 2018 newcomer — actually a returning megastar — is Raiders coach Jon Gruden. Enticed out of the ESPN broadcast booth, given full reign in Oakland along with major money, Gruden already has flexed his power by trading the Raiders’ best player, pass rusher supreme Khalil Mack .That probably won’t temper the rabid Black Hole for the opener. What might is a Rams club with perhaps the most talented roster in the NFL, led by DT Aaron Donald and RB Todd Gurley.Cincinnati at IndianapolisAnother key returnee (and http://www.thetexanslockerroom.com/auth … ton-jersey , yeah, a QB) is Andrew Luck for the Colts. A shoulder injury that some claim was misdiagnosed, others say was mishandled, sidelined him for all of 2017. When healthy, he is elite, although the roster under new coach Frank Reich appears anything but.Cincinnati brought back Marvin Lewis, the second-longest tenured coach in the NFL, and also re-signed its top two defenders, Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins. They’ll try to wreak havoc on Luck.Tennessee at MiamiMike Vrabel won three Super Bowls as a linebacker and sometime TD-catching receiver. He takes over a Titans squad that made the playoffs and upset Kansas City last winter, and seeks to build on such success in the rugged AFC South. Look for RB Derrick Henry to be the workhorse on offense and CB Malcolm Butler trying to show he deserved to play for the Patriots in their Super Bowl loss to Philadelphia.The Dolphins‘ season could depend on how much Frank Gore has left as a ball carrier. Gore is closing in on fourth place on the career rushing list, seemingly Hall of Fame credentials.Washington at ArizonaLike Patricia and to a lesser extent Vrabel, new Cardinals coach Steve Wilks made his reputation as a defensive coordinator with Carolina. One thing for sure, he will have the Cardinals playing a more physical style than in recent seasons. On offense, he gets back fantasy football go-to David Johnson at running back.With the Cousins years over, Alex Smith was acquired and will make few mistakes at quarterback. He doesn’t have a ton to work with, unless recently signed Adrian Peterson still excels. Don’t bet against Peterson.Jacksonville at New York GiantsGiants owner John Mara calls what happened to his club last season “a perfect storm.” New York tried to right the ship by hiring Pat Shurmur as coach and Dave Gettleman as general manager. If the Giants are healthy and second overall draft pick Saquon Barkley is the second coming of LT — LaDainian Tomlinson, not Lawrence Taylor — this could be a dangerous team.The first test is massive. After being 10 minutes from making the Super Bowl, the Jags are among the AFC favorites. Even spicier: Tom Coughlin, who led the Giants to two titles as coach and now oversees Jacksonville’s football operations, returns to the Meadowlands.Chicago at Green BayTalk about adding some spice, that’s exactly what Mack will do for the Monsters of the Midway. It might not happen Sunday night at Lambeau Field; let the standout defender get into football shape first.Chicago hired Chiefs offensive guru Matt Nagy as coach, but it’s Mack and the D that likely will carry the Bears.No question who will carry the Packers. Aaron Rodgers returns from his shoulder woes that derailed the 2017 season. Of primary interest could be his hookups with tight end Jimmy Graham, who needs to return to elite status after several down years.Houston at New EnglandWhat could be a highly revealing matchup for the first weekend of the schedule.Like so many teams Womens Johnathan Joseph Jersey , the Texans are hoping to stay away from the injury bug that ruined them last season. Getting back J.J. Watt, probably the best defensive player the NFL has seen in the past half-dozen years, and Whitney Mercilus is huge. So is having Deshaun Watson at quarterback after his sensational rookie performances before wrecking his knee.More than ever, the spotlight in New England will be on defensive improvement. Unless age catches up to him — and he plans to play until he is 45 — Tom Brady at 41 remains the Michael Jordan/Wayne Gretzky of football.Tampa Bay at New OrleansThe Saints are looking pretty jazzy after strong drafts and personnel moves helped them nearly make the NFC title game last season. They had both top rookie award winners in RB Alvin Kamara and CB Marshon Lattimore, while Drew Brees probably will be setting more passing records at age 39.It’s hard to say the same about a Buccaneers squad that will have starting quarterback Jameis Winston suspended for three games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Tampa Bay was very active in bulking up its defense, a must in the NFC South going against Brees, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton.Kansas City at Los Angeles ChargersA lot of love is being sent the Chargers’ way in their second season playing in a soccer stadium. Rightfully so given their strengths in the pass rush and with a balanced offense. Remember, they lost their first four games before winding up 9-7 and barely out of the postseason.Not so much love outside of Arrowhead Stadium is being tossed at the Chiefs, so a road win against the presumptive AFC West favorite would provide a massive boost. Coach Andy Reid has a way of winning with most any level of talent — at least in the regular season.Dallas at CarolinaThe big questions in Big D:—How much will having Zeke Elliott in the backfield all season make a difference?—Can Dak Prescott replicate his great rookie year with Elliott behind him?—Who will catch the ball with Jason Witten and Dez Bryant gone?—Other than a solid pass rush, what does Dallas have on defense?There are fewer queries in Carolina, though repeating 11-5 in the NFC South won’t likely get a division crown. Watch for RB Christian McCaffrey to truly break out.Seattle at DenverYeah, the teams that fought it out for the 2013 NFL crown now have that also-ran look. Roster makeovers are greatly to blame.Seattle’s once-masterful defense is in rebuild mode, while other than the superb Russell Wilson throwing to the superb Doug Baldwin, it’s hard to find much on offense to get excited about.Denver brought in Case Keenum after he quarterbacked Minnesota to the NFC championship game in his first real shot at being the starter. It’s the Orange Crush defense, however, that will need to sway games for the Broncos.Buffalo at BaltimoreSorry, but we’ll finish with more quarterback stuff.This could have been a glimpse of two April first-rounders, Buffalo’s Josh Allen against Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson. Both will ride the bench, though, and at least in the Bills’ case it’s understandable. Coach Sean McDermott probably didn’t want Allen making a debut against the Ravens‘ aggressive and powerful defense.___

That’s what makes him such a dynamic coach and what made him a success in the Monday Night Football booth. It’s why, even if he’s been calm and understated for a period of time, you can count on him to keep everyone on their toes by saying something completely bonkers.Coach Gruden was asked after today’s training camp practice how he felt about the Raiders’ backup quarterback battle, which is between Mike ‘The Human Giraffe’ Glennon and Nathan ‘Literally the Worst Quarterback Ever’ Peterman.“I like these guys. This Nate Peterman is growing on me,” said Gruden. “He’s athletic. I know he’s had some nightmare performances in the NFL, but when you watch the film you can see why. It’s not all his fault but he’s got some talent, he’s got some athleticism, he’s got some experience. Here’s an opening day starter for the Buffalo Bills last year. I take that very serious. And he’s smart. He’s done a good job, he’s been consistent and I think he’s starting to get his confidence back and we all need that.”No, coach, no. This is the sort of thing that Mark Davis should roll up a newspaper and smack Jon Gruden on the nose for saying. I get that Peterman played for literally the Bills and that he looks the part Bo Jackson Jersey , like how a successful quarterback should look, in shorts. But Peterman also has a record of 1-3 as a starter and a QB/INT ratio of 3/12. He was aggressively ‘meh’ in college at Pitt, where he was essentially a more boring version of Tyler Palko, and when he got to the pro ranks based entirely on his genetics and through no achievements of his own, he proved how overmatched he was and how his decision-making ability rivals that of the kid who climbed in the gorilla pen with Harambe. Nate Peterman is the sort of musclebound stiff Vince McMahon would try and fail to make a big star in the 1980s.I get that Jon Gruden likes to stand behind his players and instill confidence, and I remember how he talked up Martavis Bryant before he smoked himself off the face of the planet. And this is completely moot because Mike Glennon could lose a leg to Moby Dick, contract diverticulitis and scurvy and blow off his fingers JPP-style with Independence Day fireworks and still be better than Nathan Peterman, so there’s little worry that Peterman will ever sniff the field during an actual regular season game. But this is exactly the sort of sad-sack player that Jon Gruden would love to turn into something, anything, just to prove he’s still a quarterback guru. Prepare to see Peterman given a lot of time during the second half of preseason games pretty soon. if you ‘pick six’ quarters to watch this preseason, make it the ones he plays in. They won’t be boring. After the 2018 NFL Draft, much ado was made about the Raiders passing on Florida State safety Derwin James in favor of UCLA tackle Kolton Miller.

When James turned out to be one of the best safeties in the league and Miller struggled, that ado turned into a full-on hullabaloo. But this year, Miller looks much improved while James has suffered a serious injury that will sideline him well into the regular season.That seems bad. But how are the rest of the Chargers doing?But James will be back soon, right?Ask Yao Ming how well foot fractures heal. This seems like a thing that could last a decently long time, and without James a really good Chargers defense will just be okay. The Raiders don’t play the Chargers until Week 10, and then again in Week 16, so it remains to be seen whether James will miss either of those games. Either way, the Chargers are one of Oakland’s biggest stumbling blocks as they try to reach the playoffs this season and beyond, so any struggles they may have are good for the Silver and Black.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did a surprising thing on Thursday night: He ran for a first down.That’s surprising both because it’s just the preseason Youth Kevin Faulk Jerseys , and Brady didn’t have to put his body at risk by running downfield, and also because, well, he’s Tom Brady. He’s not exactly known as the swiftest runner.But Brady says he loves it when the opportunity arises for him to make plays with his legs.“I think those are important plays,” Brady said, via MassLive.com. To get a first down conversion on me scrambling, I’m sure the defensive coordinator is like ‘What the heck. We gotta stop [Julian] Edelman, we gotta stop [James] White, we gotta stop the run game. We gotta stop these great players and all of a sudden Brady for a scramble.’ That’s gotta piss ’em off pretty good. I revel in that.”Brady had 10 rushing first downs last year. He thinks 16 would be a good goal for this year.“Hopefully I can do that once a game,” Brady said. “I think I’d be good with that. If they give the the opportunity, I’ll take it. I just don’t think it can be much more than four or five yards.”Brady has pissed opposing defenses off for two decades, and he’s not going to stop now.

There’s one school currently represented by a pipeline of six.Here’s the mid-May rundown on just whom played their final NCAA downs where.Arizona State Sun Devils: 3WR N’Keal HarryDT Lawrence GuyLB Christian SamNew England has invested draft capital in a pair of Sun Devils over the last two springs, with Sam going in the sixth round in 2018 and Harry going in the first round in 2019.Arkansas Razorbacks: 3G Hjalte FroholdtOT Dan SkipperDE Deatrich Wise Jr.Bret Bielema, now overseeing New England’s defensive line, served as head coach of the Razorbacks during the tenures of all three.

Re: LA THÉORIE ET LA PRATIQUE

KANSAS CITY Rashad Fenton Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs have made a habit of inciting controversy during the NFL draft in the Andy Reid era by acquiring players that have a history of off-the-field issues.This year, they didn’t even wait until the draft.The Chiefs swung a blockbuster trade with the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday to acquire pass rusher Frank Clark for a package of picks, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press. The two sides then reached an agreement on a $105.5 million, five-year contract that was contingent on Clark passing a physical, which was expected to be completed Wednesday.The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal, which sent the Chiefs’ first-round pick this year and a second-rounder next year to Seattle, had not become official.That didn’t stop fans, talk-radio hosts and people from just about every walk of life in Kansas City from debating the merits of bringing in yet another player with baggage.The team took a chance on cornerback Marcus Peters, who was traded away after getting into trouble with coaches. It drafted running back Kareem Hunt, then quickly cut him when he kicked a woman in a hotel hallway. And it picked wide receiver Tyreek Hill Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys 2019 , who was dealing with his own domestic violence case that centered on the 3-year-old child he shares with his fiance.While Clark has stayed out of trouble during four years in the NFL, he was kicked off the team at Michigan when he was charged with first-degree domestic violence and assault following an incident with his then-girlfriend. The charges were later reduced to fourth-degree persistent disorderly conduct and Clark completed a domestic violence course and paid court costs and fines.One organization that called the trade “disconcerting” was the Rose Brooks Center, which has been providing a safe haven for victims of domestic violence for 40 years.“Organizations and other systems have a community responsibility to hold offenders accountable, just as Rose Brooks Center does, in order to end the epidemic of domestic violence,” the center said in a statement. “When we do not hold offenders accountable, it sends a message of acceptance not only to the offender, but to the victim, reducing the likelihood that a victim will come forward.”The Chiefs have not commented on the trade because it has yet to become official, though the team did tweet video from the locker room of a No. 55 jersey with Clark’s name on it.His arrival continues a trend of the Chiefs giving players with questionable off-the-field histories a second chance Infant Rashad Fenton Jersey , with mixed results.Peters, who was kicked off his team at Washington for fighting with his coach, quickly became one of the league’ best cornerbacks. But increasingly erratic conduct reached a tipping point when Peters got into an altercation with then-defensive coordinator Bob Sutton following a game.Peters ultimately was shipped to the Rams last offseason for second- and fourth-round draft picks.In 2016, the Chiefs used a fifth-round pick on Hill, who was kicked off the team at Oklahoma State after punching his pregnant girlfriend and transferred to tiny West Alabama. His elite speed and game-breaking ability made him one of the league’s biggest stars on the field, but off the field many fans were dismayed at the pick — some even gave up season tickets or swore off the team altogether.Hill completed a series of steps to have the original domestic violence charges expunged, and he had stayed out of trouble until last month when police were called to his home twice in a span of nine days to investigate a report of child abuse and battery of a juvenile. On Wednesday, the Johnson County district attorney declined to press charges in the case because he could not determine whether it was Hill or his fiance, Crystal Espinal, that injured the child.“We believe a crime has occurred Rashad Fenton Jersey nfl draft ,” district attorney Steve Howe said. “We’ve asked the police to do quite a bit of follow-up work. They’ve completed their investigation and we’re at an impasse at this point and any further investigation would be unwarranted.”The Chiefs have declined to discuss Hill even as they began offseason workouts, and coach Andy Reid merely said “he is here” when asked about his talented wide receiver last week.General manager Brett Veach also declined to discuss the case.“I think it’s going to work itself out here,” he said, “and we’ll deal with the information as it comes. Like I said, there’s nothing I’d probably be in a position to say right now on that.”The Chiefs have been quick in addressing domestic violence in at least one case.After choosing Hunt despite a history of issues in college, and watching him lead the league in rushing as a rookie, they wasted no time in cutting him once video surfaced of an incident in an Ohio hotel hallway. Hunt was seen pushing and kicking a woman while she was on the ground.“Our scouting staff does a really good job of vetting players and part of that analysis is their character,” Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said at the time. “Obviously, it’s very hard to learn everything about somebody. Sometimes you have somebody who in college didn’t have any incidents, then they get to the pro level and with the fame and fortune that comes with the position Rashad Fenton Jersey Womens , they do something you don’t expect. We’re certainly going to try to get better, but I don’t think you can ever be perfect.”It’s unclear what kind of due diligence the Chiefs did when it came to Clark, though two people familiar with his signing said the background work done was extensive.What they heard was enough to make the Chiefs comfortable not only with bringing him aboard, but also making Clark one of the highest-paid pass rushers in the NFL. Each practice day, the Kansas City Chiefs will release an official injury report leading up to the next game. The Chiefs host the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.Here is the Chiefs’ first official injury report of the week:PatriotsSome notesSafety Eric Berry was listed as a “full participant” to start the week. Berry has missed the Chiefs’ last two games (Week 17 and last week against the Colts) due to his lingering heel injury. Wednesday’s report is what the Chiefs want to see headed into the weekend, but it remains something to be monitored as Berry has suffered setbacks before. Right guard Laurent Durvernay-Tardif and running back Spencer Ware were listed as “limited” participants for the Chiefs Wednesday. It was Durvernay-Tardif’s first practice back since the Chiefs activated back onto the active 53-man roster. Ware hasn’t played since injuring his hamstring Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.Linebacker Dorian O’Daniel, who missed last week against the Colts, did not practice to start the week.There was a point in the Chiefs’ game against the Colts in which Patrick Mahomes looked to have tweaked his knee, but the fact that he is not on the injury report at all is a great sign. Mahomes should be fine headed into Sunday’s game against New England. Only one Patriot was listed on the injury report—defensive end Deatrich Wise Jr. He was a full participant.
