The three-pronged quarterback extravaganza at the top of the 2018 NFL draft has not unfolded as planned.

Southern California’s Sam Darnold has made an array of both NFL throws and head-slap interceptions, and he has sent signals he will consider returning to college. Josh Allen remains a wild Spencer Long Jersey card because of the competition he faces at Wyoming and the offensive line he plays behind, and if anything, he has regressed. Josh Rosen has flashed brilliance for UCLA, especially on intermediate throws, but has also been prone to interceptions and is now hurt, again.

The Eagles’ Carson Wentz played in a pro-style offense in college at North Dakota State. This season, he has excelled running run-pass options and other wrinkles typically associated with the college game, so much that some Denver Broncos defenders called Philadelphia’s scheme, admiringly, a college offense.

Mayfield may be the next quarterback in that mold. It would not shock me at all if he is a starter really early in his career for a team making a playoff push, Klatt said. He didn’t start the season as a top NFL prospect, but Mayfield is making his way there.

Colleagues said Lockhart was not being forced out, but his exit comes after a turbulent 2017 season in which the NFL was involved in a public feud with President Trump regarding players’ protests during the national anthem. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league office also came under attack by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who tried unsuccessfully to block Goodell’s five-year contract extension.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who remains unemployed after a 2016 season in which he began the movement of players protesting during the national anthem, has filed a grievance accusing NFL teams of colluding to keep him out of the league, his legal representatives said.

Kaepernick retained Los Angeles-based attorney Mark J. Geragos to pursue the collusion claim and, according to a person with knowledge of the filing, it will be Kaepernick’s outside legal representation and not the NFL Players Association primarily in charge of preparing and presenting his case.

With Patricia off the board, it leaves the Colts, Cardinals and Giants scrambling for head coaches.

The Titans’ biggest strength — running the ball — lines up well against the Chiefs biggest weakness — stopping the run. That’s a red flag for a team favored as much as the Chiefs. But I can’t stop thinking about the 2016 wild-card game where the Chiefs punched the Texans in the mouth early and never stopped punching until it was 30-0. A few months later the Texans were signing Brock Osweiler.

Any suspension would likely come from the Personal Conduct Policy, which is Harry Carson Womens Jersey invoked when players act in a way that’s damaging to the league’s reputation. Elliott has had several incidents, including going to a pot shop in Seattle last year, pulling a woman’s top down during a St. Patrick’s Day parade and, of course (and far most importantly), the investigation into whether or not he was guilty of the domestic charges levied against him shortly after being drafted.

The 2009 championship team, by comparison, had an adjusted scoring margin of 10.8 points per game.

And it’s mostly thanks to a historically good running game that focuses on a pair of running backs on pace to become one of the best tandems we have seen since 2002, the year the league expanded to 32 teams.

Veteran Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara have combined to produce 1,925 yards from scrimmage (rushing and receiving) in 2017 and rank fourth and eighth, respectively, for scrimmage yards among running backs this season. Over the past 17 years, only the 2007 Minnesota Vikings had a better 1-2 punch (1,940 yards from scrimmage) during the first 10 games of a season 鈥?and the vast majority of that yardage was coming from Adrian Peterson (1,301).

Mike Vrabel hired as Titans’ head coach

The Titans have announced the hiring of Mike Vrabel as their next coach.

Vrabel has seven years’ worth of coaching experience, including only four in the NFL, all with the Texans. He was Houston’s linebackers coach from 2014-16 and its defensive coordinator in 2017. Houston in 2017 allowed a league-high 436 points and ranked 20th in yards allowed, giving up 346.6 yards per game. The Texans also ranked 20th in rush defense (109.2 yards per game) and ninth in the NFL pass defense (237.4 yards per game).

Vrabel also has a storied 14-year playing career in the NFL, winning Super Bowls 36, 38 and 39 with the Patriots. He was named first-team All-Pro in 2007, which saw New England fall one game short of a perfect season.

New England, naturally, is a big favorite to beat upstart Jacksonville in the AFC championship game Jan. 21 in Foxborough, Mass. The early lines in Las Vegas on Sunday had the Pats favored by nine over the Jaguars, who upset the Steelers on Sunday in the divisional round. That spread had been bet down to Patriots -7.5 by Sunday morning. The over-under (total points) was set at 48, but has dipped to 46.5 in some places.

The Pats are 10-1 against the spread in their last 11 games, according to Vegasinsider.com; the UNDER is 7-4 in those games.

The NFC championship matchup, Vikings at Eagles on Jan. 21, is much closer in Vegas’ eyes, and once again, the conference’s top seed is an underdog. Philadelphia is getting 3 1/2 points from Minnesota after beating Atlanta outright as a 2 1/2-point ‘dog Saturday. The Vikings were favored by between 3 and 5.5 points leading up to the game, but that number had settled at Vikings -3 on Sunday morning.

The Chiefs’ last home playoff win came against the Steelers.

Guess who they beat the next week (albeit on the road)? The Houston Oilers, aka the pre-Tennessee Titans. Does that mean much? Nothing at all. Is it a good sign? Sure, why not.

The Jaguars aren’t really ones to let bygones be bygones, so good luck to anyone standing in Jean Segura Youth jersey their way of some sweet revenge.

On the surface, you wouldn’t expect there to be much beef between two teams in different divisions who both ended significant playoff droughts. But that’s not the case for the Jags and the Bills, who will meet Sunday in a postseason game not many of us would have predicted.

Limited Chase Allen Jersey Anderson was arrested at 2:15 a.m. in Sunrise, Florida, not far from his home. He was charged with fleeing and eluding police with lights and sirens active and threatening a public servant or family member, which are both felonies.

He also was charged with two misdemeanors — resisting arrest without violence and reckless driving. The other five charges are traffic violations.

Anderson, driving a white SUV, blew through a traffic stop and was clocked at 105 mph in a 45 mph zone, according to the arrest report. He also ran two red lights and was all over the roadway before stopping for police.

Once in custody, Anderson refused to get in the back of the police vehicle, the report said. Once he was in the car, Anderson used profanity and made a sexual reference to the officer’s wife.

The other name to keep an eye on? Offensive line coach Mike Munchak, who became a surprise candidate to pop up for multiple job openings this offseason. Munchak was an odd candidate on the surface level based on his record with the Titans, but there is a decent argument he did pretty well with Tennessee, going 22-26 over three years with Jake Locker as his quarterback.

One of the jobs he was up to get was the Cardinals gig, and Arizona was going to bring him back for a second interview. According to multiple reports, Munchak declined the opportunity for the second chat with GM Steve Keim and President/CEO Michael Bidwell.

What does Ryan Shazier mean to the Steelers?

He had 89 total tackles this season, despite missing the last four games. That ties him with Vince Williams, who started all 16 games, for second on the team. Shazier finished the season with two forced fumbles and three picks, both of which tie him for the No. 1 spot on the team in each category.
Youth Nike Los Angeles Rams #76 Rodger Saffold Limited Olive 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
Shazier means so much more to the Steelers than that, as was seen in the way his teammates reacted immediately after his injury. They had a hard time holding back tears in the immediate aftermath and for the rest of the game.

I don’t think Vince (Williams) stopped crying until after halftime, and that’s one of the most gangster dudes Womens TJ Brodie Jersey on the team, safety Mike Mitchell said, via The MMQB’s Greg Bishop. People had to grab him by the face mask and be like, ‘Yo, you’re the middle linebacker now. You can’t be sniffling.’

The Steelers went on to win that game, beating the Bengals 23-20. They won four of their last five, locking up the second seed in the AFC. He wasn’t on the field, but they didn’t do it without Shazier.

How big was Foles’ 53-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery? In the context of the game, it broke the game open for the Eagles, giving them a 14-point lead with just more than a minute left before halftime. In terms of Foles’ QBR, it skyrocketed from 66.7 to 91.0 on that play alone — with Foles being credited with more than 2.3 expected points added. It was so impactful because of the situation, on third-and-10 with halftime approaching, in addition to the sheer yardage.
Authentic Kids Trevor Williams Jersey
His QBR never dipped below 89 from that point on. And even with a reduced weight in garbage time, he climbed to the upper echelons of playoff QBR performance by the end of the game.

Actually, this wasn’t really about Tebow’s famous 80-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas. In fact, that was only his fifth-most valuable play of the day, because Tebow didn’t throw it very far down the field and Thomas did most of the work. EPA-wise, it was another pass to Thomas — a 51-yarder in the second quarter on third-and-12 — that was the most valuable.

Authentic Kids Chris Doleman Jersey Warner outshone Aaron Rodgers in this playoff shootout. In fact, the then-Cardinals quarterback threw more touchdown passes than incompletions in this one. The Cardinals won in overtime on a strip-sack of Rodgers that Arizona returned for a touchdown.

The final Wild Card Game saw the New Orleans Saints beat the Carolina Panthers for the third time this season, 31-26.

While the Eagles will remain outwardly positive about Foles, there must be some doubt about what his play will be like on Saturday afternoon. Before I detail how the Eagles can get the most out of Foles, no matter how they do it, it’s a must that they score a touchdown on their opening drive. The entire building will be electric, but the Linc will have some nervous, anxious fans in the crowd. Scoring early will ease tensions in the building. For the Eagles, it will allow the defense to play freer. I have to think the defense feels it needs to be perfect because it doesn’t trust the offense. Having an early score will take some weight off the shoulders of the Eagles defense.

Josh Norman Authentic Jersey With Wentz’s success, I think we 锟斤拷 well, not me 锟斤拷 have forgotten the backbone of the Eagles offense is the offensive line. The Eagles lost All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters right before the halfway point of the season, but backup Halapoulivaati Vaitai has filled in admirably. They have All-Pro center Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson at right tackle. Right guard Brandon Brooks is a Pro Bowler. The Eagles will need this offensive line to open up holes on Saturday.

The change in offensive performance coincided with a change in approach from the Titans.

The playcalling also took a distinct turn 锟斤拷 perhaps because Mariota appeared to be making many of the calls 锟斤拷 featuring more read option run calls and more short-to-intermediate throws towards the middle of the field.

Another pass to Michael Thomas put the Saints at the Vikings’ 24-yard line with 33 seconds on the clock. With 29 seconds, Wil Lutz attempted a 43-yard field goal, and split the uprights to give the Saints a 24-23 lead:

The Vikings would start with the ball at the 25-yard line after the Saints’ kickoff. A completion to Stefon Diggs got the Vikings to the 39-yard line, where they called a timeout with 18 seconds left.

We start, though, with Newton’s pivotal calendar year, and how the Panthers’ vision of a slightly altered version of their franchise QB—a more sustainable version—has come to life. And yes, Newton’s March surgery is a big part of this, but the plan was set into motion well before then, and it’s actually one you’ve seen before.

“The model is Pittsburgh,” Rivera said, referencing Ben Roethlisberger’s growth a half-decade ago. “Look what they do with [Le’Veon] Bell, look what they do with [Antonio] Brown, it’s about getting the ball in the hands of the playmakers as quickly as possible. And you gotta put those guys in position.

It’s a perfect time for their pin/pull concept, like this example. It’s a tad different box, but just add a tight end into the box and it’s the same look:

Here are the Saints running inside zone and allowing those lighter defensive tackles to get pushed around and score:

The Eagles are good at this as well.

That last run by the Eagles was also on third down, something no one likes to do anymore. The Eagles would be wise trying to run the ball in passing situations, to help Foles on this tough down. Trap schemes would also be efficient.

“He’s probably at 90, 95% right now,” Rivera said. “And I’ll take that with this guy, because this guy is tremendous. The big thing is, timing is so important, [but] building that feel and relationship with your teammates, it’s so important.”

Kraft was not happy with the circumstances surrounding Spygate in 2007 and the penalties handed out then.

I’ve heard some media people say it’s different this time; it’s infighting with the big egos of Belichick and Brady battling, and Kraft trying to mediate, as opposed to battling with the commissioner and the league office.

Limited Youth Brandon Mebane Jersey After an Eagles punt and a Bears three-and-out, Eagles second-year quarterback Carson Wentz gets hot. He finds Zach for nine yards, then Alshon Jeffery for 14. On first and 10 from the 17, Wentz drops back, cycles through his progressions and fires over the middle to Zach, who’s thrown off his defender with a head fake to the sideline and a cut to the post. It’s Ertz’s seventh touchdown catch of the season. Over in the 100 sections, the Ertz ladies along with their guests, Horner and his wife, Danielle, explode.

Zach, who missed Authentic Michael Floyd Jersey one game due to a strained hamstring in the first week of November, will avoid any punishing blows for the next three hours. A pocket of the family section gets a scare when LeGarrette Blount, Ertz’s new teammate, hurdles a defender late in the first half during a 22-yard run for a first down. While the rest of the stadium erupts at the sight, the Blount family, sitting a row in front of the Ertzes, and their immediate neighbors flinch and wince.

You can always tell you’re around player’s families when that sort of thing happens, Julie says, because the reaction is very different. It’s amazing to see what these athletic men can do, but you don’t like to see that when it’s your family. (The following week at Seattle, Zach would suffer a concussion that caused him to miss a game.)

After a video montage of his first tenure , Gruden told a room packed with reporters, cameras and former players how emotional and excited he was to have another opportunity.

Obviously this is very emotional for me. I never wanted to leave the Raiders. I never thought I’d be back. But here I am and I’m ready to get to work, Gruden said. I love football, I love the players that play it and I love the journey.

The Raiders touted Gruden’s hire as unfinished business after Gruden went 38-26 in four seasons as the team’s coach from 1998-2001.

Gruden was traded to the Buccaneers before the 2002 season and won the Super Bowl in his first season, beating the Raiders in Super Bowl 37. Gruden spent seven seasons as the Bucs coach but was fired following the 2008 season after a 9-7 season. He compiled a 57-55 record in Tampa and had worked for ESPN since 2009.

I’ve wanted to come back. I’ve prepared to come back. I’m ready for another challenge, and I’m eager to prove I can do it, Gruden said with his trademark arching eyebrows and scowl. I have a lot to prove. I haven’t won a game since 2008, but I haven’t lost one either.

Josh Bynes Limited Jersey Gruden’s new contract is expected to be a 10-year deal worth $100 million, but he didn’t comment on the terms.

All I know is this year I’m coaching in Oakland, he said. How long I stay here will be determined by how well we play.

Moore threw a pick on his first full series on an aggressive throw downfield, leading to the Jets’ final touchdown.

The thing about this league is no one’s going to feel sorry for you, as you know, Moore said. But a game like today goes a long way toward reinforcing what [Gase] has told us. We got back from London, and it was pretty bad, and he just said, ‘Finish. Finish. If we’re going to change, if we’re going to turn it around, you be the change.’

I saw the chain and, again, I saw space and I was like, ‘All right. They just made a big error going for it right there. This is a turning point. We’ve got the ball at the 40 going the other way,’ Del Rio said Monday. That was pretty ballsy and it really didn’t get work, except they got the fortuitous reaction from the (officiating) crew.

Del Rio admitted the Raiders (6-8) still had a chance at the end, but fumbled it through the end zone. He was proud of his team’s effort, but added he doesn’t believe in consolation prizes. Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys (8-6) didn’t eliminate the Raiders from the AFC playoff picture, but they have to win out against the Eagles (12-2) and Chargers (7-7) and get some help.

We’re playing to win at all costs, Del Rio said Monday. We need to win games. That’s what we’re here for.

Authentic Mens Clark Gillies Jersey A former NFL player and longtime coach, Del Rio said he doesn’t have an issue with the low-tech process of bringing chains from the sideline to measure for a first down. As for Steratore’s odd measuring technique, well, that was a new one.
