The San Francisco 49ers have reached the halfway point of their schedule

:  liny195 @ 4.12.2018, 7:23
http://www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com/l...ersey-authentic , and it fittingly comes at the same time as the 2018 NFL trade deadline. NFL rules allow for player trade up until 1 p.m. PT on Tuesday, October 30th. After that, deals cannot be formally executed until the new league year starts next March.The 49ers are in the midst of their rebuilding process, and at a bit of a curious period in it. They entered the season looking to push for a playoff berth. They had plenty of holes to fill, but with Jimmy Garoppolo, I think most of us thought they could at least hang around the playoff chase into the latter part of the season.The loss of Jerick McKinnon to a torn ACL in training camp lowered expectations a little bit, but we still saw Garoppolo as the guy who could guide this ship. Once Garoppolo went down, expectations changed drastically. C.J. Beathard returned to the starting lineup, and the team is playing out the string looking to 2019 and Garoppolos return from ACL surgery.The 49ers are looking at a high draft pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, which could bring a serious impact edge rusher or cornerback (or another position). That coupled with the return of Garoppolo and McKinnon likely raises expectations back to the playoff level. We dont know how Garoppolo or McKinnon will respond coming off a torn ACL, but that wont stop people from thinking this is a playoff team.And so, as the trade deadline approaches, the team has to balance a potential 2019 playoff push with the long-term process. Weve heard trade rumors thus far about Pierre Gar莽on and Jimmie Ward. Gar莽on is struggling with injuries and might be hitting the end of the road, while Ward has been shuffled around every year and is in the option year of his rookie contract. I could see both being dealt if the 49ers can get some draft pick compensation.There has been some mention of Richard Sherman as a potential trade option, but that wont be happening this year. John Lynch has said he is part of the future, and Sherman himself has said they told him as much. A Godfather offer could come along, but that seems unlikely at this point.Matt Maiocco brought up an interesting name in his trade deadline primer: guard Joshua Garnett. The 2016 first round pick spent last season on injured reserve, and has been inactive six of the eight games thus far in 2018. An injury cost him a chance at starting over Mike Person, but it remains to be seen if he was going to claim a starting job even if healthy. Person signed a one-year contract this year, so his future is uncertain. The 49ers might very well not be able to get even a seventh for Garnett at this point, but he will be someone to track as the deadline approaches this afternoon.Another name is occasionally mentioned, but makes little to no sense given the current status of the team. Ive had people ask if Joe Staley should be traded. ESPNs Mike Sando recently put together a rundown of deals NFL executives have either suggested to him or he has vetted with them. He included a deal that had the Los Angeles Chargers sending a third round pick to the 49ers for Staley.I get that the 49ers could move McGlinchey to left tackle and draft or sign another tackle next year, but this where looking to be competitive in 2019 comes into play. Long-term, the 49ers will need to replace Joe Staley. But for a potential playoff push in 2019 and maybe 2020, Staley would seem to be the best answer if you want to fill other needs with higher impact picks. If the 49ers think he will take a step back Youth Adrian Colbert Jersey , thats another discussion entirely, but to trade him for any other reason doesnt make sense to me.Do you actually expect to see any deals today? Weve heard talk of this deadline being busier than any in recent memory, but NFL trades are slow to develop. I would be pleasantly surprised to see it turn into a busy day, but Im not holding my breath. How do you go about preparing for a coordinator who has never called a play before?Its a good question. Obviously, hes going to have his wrinkle. Theyve got what they put on tape. Trying to see what hes been influenced by in his past. Well see as the game goes on. Obviously, its going to be very important for in-game adjustments to see what they do in-game, but itll be interesting to see what he comes up with. Hes such a neophyte when it comes to coaching. Do you look back at his playing career?Any time you have a chance, what hes been influenced by, absolutely. As a quarterback, where hes been. So, you look at all that. But, at the same time he might have a ton of knowledge, but again, its transferring it over to the player and all that stuff, too. Again, its going to come down to gameday and making as many in-game adjustments as we can as we see plays develop. Do you anticipate former Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians to be a heavy influence? How do you approach that?I dont know. Itll be interesting, for sure. Obviously, thats where hes most attached to, but at the same time, it could be anything. What do you think is getting in the way of LB Reuben Foster playing like he did last year?Obviously, he missed the first couple of games of the year and its not going the way he wants and all that stuff. I do think hes moving in the right direction. He did have his best practice of the year yesterday. Hes going to be fine. I get it, in this day and age, with everything needs to happen now. But, I promise you, Reuben is going to be just fine when this is all said and done. Second-year player Womens Mike McGlinchey Jersey , to push the panic button is way, way premature in my mind. He seems like a guy that is very hard on himself and really wants to be very good. Do you think that sometimes may lead to pressing for a guy like that?For a second-year player, and it goes throughout the league, its just my opinion, I think the second-year player is the hardest year for a player in general. When they come in as rookies, you have kids who come in and they dont know anything. Theyre just locked in on their coach, theyre trying as hard as they can, they want to make a great first impression, theyre out there balling, they know nothing about anything and theyre just running and hitting. When they get into their second year theyve got social media, theyve got a bank full of money, theyve got family, theyve got entourage, theyve got a whole bunch of stuff outside, along with what they perceive as more knowledge of football. So, they forget what made them great as rookies in the first place. Not that they forget, but its a balancing act. So, there is a little bit of another adjustment period that they have to go through in their second year. The exciting part, and I get it, when things arent going great people want to point out the negative and they struggle, people struggle to see the positives. [DB Adrian Colbert] A.C. had his best game before he got hurt. [CB] Ahkello [Witherspoon] is showing a lot of promise. [DL] Solomon [Thomas] had a really nice game last week. So, guys are moving in the right direction. I know through all the stuff thats been happening this year, its very hard to see. But, if you sit down in the film room and you truly study it, you could see them all improving. There are clips out there of Reuben running around with seemingly a dead right arm. Whats happening on those plays? Is that something that youre aware of before its happening or do you see it?Hes going through some stuff Womens Fred Warner Jersey , obviously. But, its not going to stop him from playing. Hes a fighter. He wants to be great. Its very, very importan ...

Week 4: A small silver lining in 49ers-Chiefs Jimmy Garoppolo is out for the year, joining RB Jerick McKinnon, and

:  liny195 @ 4.12.2018, 7:12
Juice Check www.49erscheapstore.com , all is gloom among the 49ers faithful.However, one pillar of Kyle Shanahans scheme stood tall Sunday.Kyle Juszczyk showed the full range of his value, from catching the teams only first half touchdown to steady work behind the running game which will be all the more important with C.J. Beathard in at QB. Say what you will about his passing and ability to read defenses, but Beathards hand-offs are not a big drop from Garoppolos.Juices role in this offense has increased every game this year. He was in for fully 53 of 68 offensive plays Sunday, plus his usual role on punt coverage. Part of that reflects Kyle Shanahans surprising and surprisingly successful strategy of coming back from a big deficit with long, grinding run-based drives. Juice showed his value in the running game over and over, with a combination of lead blocks out of I-formation and occasional backside wham blocks to keep defenses guessing. During the final fourth quarter drive, for example, the Niners had the ball at the fifty yard line, first and ten. Juszczyk drove linebacker Reggie Ragland back five yards and pancaked him, clearing the way for Matt Breida to pick up five yards. And earlier, at 5:15 of the 3rd, he cleared out DB Kendall Fuller two yards past the line of scrimmage, then ran downfield and pushed the pile forward San Francisco 49ers T-Shirt , finishing off a 16-yard gain for Alfred Morris.He was also valuable in pass protection on eight plays, holding off some pretty intense bull rushes and free runners. But what everyone will remember about this game were Juszczyks marquee offensive touches. He had two highlight plays on NFL.com, and for the second time this year in three games, the longest reception by the 49ers at 35 yards. During a dismal first half when the 49ers could not sustain a drive, Juice broke the ice by sneaking out on a drag route that broke downfield. It completely fooled the Chiefs, leaving him wide open for a deep pass.Garoppolos pass was no where near hitting him in stride, but the fullback was able to flip around, haul it in and outrace a safety to the end zone. His soft hands are an underrated part of his skill set.At the end of the game, Juszczyk executed a nifty run option play, taking the handoff from Garoppolo, running toward the slot, and masterfully pitching to Matt Breida at the last second for a 13-yard gain inside the red zone. Again, its not only that he could do the play, but that he did it so well. Often, on trick plays like this, you see the rarely-used back look uncertain and San Francisco 49ers Hats , as often or not, bobble or even fumble the ball. Juice looked like he had been a triple option QB in college, and I have no doubt that if a defender had not filled the slot, he would have run it in himself.In fact, Juszczyk is currently the emergency QB for the Niners (now that Jerick McKinnon is out injured).As Matt Maiocco recently noted, he was the emergency QB at Baltimore too, played some quarterback in high school, and ran Wildcat plays as a tight end at Harvard. I wouldnt be surprised to see him taking some more reps in practice, and throwing a pass in a game later this year.To be fair, Juszczyk was called for the OPI penality on the Niners last offensive play, nullifying Beathards TD pass, but there was widespread agreement including by Fox analysts that the call was crap.And these highlight plays dont even cover the extent of Juices contributions on passing. He drew an 18-yard DPI penalty on a wheel route against KCs dime backer, Anthony Hitchens, at 2:20 of the first quarter.And exactly one quarter later, at 2:20 of the second, Juszczyk (blue circle) was wide open for a solid gain San Francisco 49ers Hoodie , but Jimmy Garoppolo inexplicably chose to target Pierre Gar莽on (red circle) who was quadruple-teamed. Its hard to be optimistic about this season, but if nothing else, Kyle Shanahan is finding more and more ways to make use of Juice, and that part of his offense should be fully developed for some future date when other key skill players are healthy. Youd think at this point hearing about San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle getting accolades like making Pro Football Focus team of the week would get redundant, but its the little things to make this season shine dagnabbit! So with that said, hes back on PFFs Team of the Week for Week 9. And its a good thing. He made it on that stupid catch and run alone. Kittle finished his night with 108 yards on just four receptions and a touchdown. An average of 27 yards per reception. Send it. Heres what Pro Football Focus had to say about the selection:The 49ers have had some draft picks that may have been head scratchers but Kittles pick is absolute genius on the decision of Kyle Shanahan and Shanahan was surprised Kittle went as late as he did.Currently, PFF ranks Kittle first in yards/route run two spots ahead of Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce. Kelce, however, beats Kittle in total yards with 741 vs. Kittles 692. In terms of PFFs receiving grades, Kittle ranks third behind Kelce and O.J. Howard. Next up is the New York Giants. Kittle has consistently performed all season, but the Giants could present a modest challenge. Football Outsiders ranks them eighth in the NFL in defending tight ends. Who knows how this quarterback or offensive situation will shake out for 2019, but one thing is for sure, Kittle is a crucial piece for it.

Picks against the spread for week 2 NFL games The 2018 NF

:  liny195 @ 4.12.2018, 7:02
L season is officially in full swing Quarterback Nick Mullens Jersey , which means regular season betting is back. Im back for another year of picks in the Westgate SuperContest. SB Nations partners over at Odds Shark are sponsoring my entry again. The contest requires selecting 5 games each week and picking them against the spread. I managed a 4-0-1 performance in Week 1, so Im certainly pleased with that. Fingers crossed for a decent performance in Week 2.I was pondering the San Francisco 49ers with one of the Week 2 picks, but I just could not pull the trigger. The 49ers head into the game favored by between six and seven points, with the SuperContest line at six. I think they beat the Detroit Lions, but there are so many question marks between these two teams. The Lions were a disaster on Monday Night Football, and edge rusher Ezekiel Ansah is questionable for the game. The Lions defense is shaky at best, so I think we see the 49ers offense rebounds well this week.Its the other side of the ball where I am concerned. The 49ers should have an advantage against the Lions guards. Frank Ragnow struggled in Week 1, and T.J. Lang is out with a back injury. DeForest Buckner, Arik Armstead, and Solomon Thomas could do some big work inside, but my concern is with the Lions receivers. Golden Tate, Marvin Jones, and Kenny Golladay present a serious test for the 49ers secondary. If the 49ers pass rush does not bring the heat, it could be a long day.The line on this game opened at 49ers -3.5, but that ugly MNF game quickly swing the line to its current position. They say you should play the number not the team. I really dont like seeing that kind of movement given the questions surrounding the 49ers. And so Rookie Nick Mullens Jersey , after all that, I decided not to use them in the SuperContest.Here are my five SuperContest picks for Week 2.Texans (PK) over TITANSSTEELERS (-4) over ChiefsSAINTS (-8.5) over BrownsBRONCOS (-6) over RaidersGiants (+3) over COWBOYSI was not overly enamored with a lot of the lines this week. The pick that might scare me the most of this group is Steelers over Chiefs. Patrick Mahomes and Co. looked phenomenal last week, while the Steelers couldnt manage more than a tie against the Browns. I have a feeling we see Pittsburgh rebound against a bad Chiefs defense.The Giants-Cowboys game could be a fun one. The Cowboys offensive line, normally a strength, is dealing with a lot of problems. Most notably, losing center Travis Frederick indefinitely is as big an issue as any team is facing from a non-QB loss. A road dog is not the best of options, but after a solid enough showing against a strong Jaguars team last week, I think the Giants are a live one.I went 9-6-1 overall in Week 1. Here are all my picks for Week 2:BENGALS vs. Ravens (PK): Bengals WinWASHINGTON vs. Colts (+6): WashingtonFALCONS vs. Panthers (+6): FalconsPACKERS vs. Vikings (-7): PackersBILLS vs. Chargers (-7): BillsTITANS vs. Texans (PK): TexansSTEELERS vs. Chiefs (+4): SteelersJETS vs. Dolphins (+2.5): DolphinsBUCCANEERS vs. Eagles (-3.5): BucsSAINTS vs. Browns (+8.5): SaintsRAMS vs. Cardinals (+12.5): Cardinals49ERS vs. Lions (+6): 49ersJAGUARS vs. Patriots (-1): JaguarsBRONCOS vs. Raiders (+6): BroncosCOWBOYS vs. Giants (+3): GiantsBEARS vs. Seahawks (+3.5): Bears I want to go to bed so bad right now after this awful, awful showing from the San Francisco 49ers. The beer tastes bad, the pizza is no longer tasty, and my Monday night is ruined. The good news, and only solace I can get out of any of this, is that I wound up playing not just George Kittle, Robbie Gould, AND Matt Breida Nick Mullens Jersey , but Nick Mullens in fantasy. And wound up winning. How this happened I dont know. Back to the Giants game. The offense had its issues, but the defense can. Not. Finish! Its growing frustrating by the game. When there was a shot of Shanahan shaking his head, I just said, Yep, he knows whats about to happen. We all knew what was about to happen. I dont think we knew it would be because of rapid-fire laundry from the refs keeping the Giants on the field, but it happened. I do wonder a lot about the defense now. It desperately needs an edge rusher. Maybe thats the piece. Who knows. Something needs to change. Im so sick and tired of the elegant tank. I just want to win some games. Worst part is, the Giants have a quarterback in Eli Manning that was on the verge of being benched a week ago. Overrated they said. Not as good they said. Well, after tonight, his career has been saved. All it takes is a matchup against the 49ers to right that ship. Ive had enough.

Rinse. Repeat. The New York Giants play. The New York Giants lose.

:  liny195 @ 4.12.2018, 6:45
The offensive line is terrible. Eli Manning is under siege http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-auth...ogletree-jersey , and still misfires even on the few occasions when he isnt. They cant run the ball, even with one of the best running backs on the planet. Mistakes (drops, penalties, turnovers) and an inability to score touchdowns in the red zone doom the offense. The defense plays hard, but is done in by surrendering big plays.Weve seen this movie over and over again this season. Call it Bumbling 2018 Giants, Episode 7. Lets get to the Kudos & Wet Willies.Kudos to ...Any Giants fan who stayed in MetLife Stadium until the end on Sunday. Youre either dedicated or crazy. Or both.Also, me. I went to Buffalo for my daughters third birthday over the weekend, driving 5 hours each way for that rather than going to MetLife. Good decision. Watching Sunday night via GamePass was brutal enough. Odell Beckham Jr. The guy is ridiculous. Eight receptions, 136 yards. Two insane catches. Saquon Barkley How good could this kid be if the Giants could actually run block? Even once in a while? He averaged just 2.9 yards per carry (13 carries, 38 yards) but also 73 yards on 9 receptions Cheap Jon Halapio Jersey , giving him 111 yards from scrimmage. Thats seven times in eight games he has surpassed that mark. Too bad its either on his own in the running game or mostly bail-out yardage in the passing game.Quadree Henderson I dont care about the three punt returns for -1 yards. Were used to seeing that from Giants returners. I do care about the 19-yard punt return. And the 30-yard kickoff return. The Giants seem to have themselves a competent returner. Hooray!Olivier Vernon No sacks, but three hits and a fumble recovery. Hes a difference maker. Now, will he be a Giant after Tuesday?Wet Willies to ...Evan Engram What good is a pass-catching tight end who cant catch? Engram had two more drops on Sunday, including one on fourth-and-3 at the Washington 32-yard line with the Giants trailing by only a touchdown and 14:23 to play. Hes wide open, its a perfectly thrown ball he got both hands on and he just didnt catch. Just plain didnt do his job. Engram had 11 drops in 115 targets a year ago, a 9.6 percent drop rate. This season, he has three drops in 26 targets, an 11.5 percent drop rate. Offensive line Seven sacks and 10 hits of Eli Manning allowed. Yes, I know some of that can be blamed on Manning being hesitant, or stationary http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-auth...r-barwin-jersey , or both. But, the 2.9 yards per rushing attempt the Giants averaged had nothing to do with Manning. The fact that much of the second half was a jail break to the quarterback wasnt Manning fault. Offensive linemen arent supposed to be turned around facing the backfield, or flat on their backs, at the end of plays. Watch the film, though, and thats what you see from the Giants. Over and over and over. Name your quarterback. I dont care who you choose. You cant play competent offense with an incompetent line, and thats what the Giants have. No one on the line Sunday, from high-priced free agent left tackle to substitute right right tackle Brian Mihalik, can be exempted from criticism.Eli Manning Your offensive line is terrible. You dont get many opportunities. You cant screw up the ones you do get. A 15-year veteran and two-time Super Bowl winner cant get fooled by coverage and throw an interception in the red zone when his struggling team gets one of its few scoring chances, one that could have tied the game. Manning shows you at times that he still has the ability to make throws. Not that he has any reason to Cheap Will Hernandez Jersey , but its easy to see the biggest issue is he doesnt trust his protection. That hes sometimes too quick to take the check down. Other times, too hesitant to throw the ball or get out of Dodge and move out of the pocket. Sometimes just plain off target because his feet are moving and his base isnt set properly when he releases the ball. What you see from Manning is understandable after so many years of playing behind lousy lines, especially since this looks like the worst of the bunch. Still, you cant play quarterback effectively with the pass rush in your head. I dont know if its reversible, or if the Giants are willing to find out. I do know its tough to watch.Giants news, 9/12: Olivier Vernon expected to practice on Wednesday Olivier Vernon, the star linebacker who missed the New York Giants season-opening game vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars with an ankle injury, will practice on Wednesday.

Pat Shurmur: Giants RB Jonathan Stewart can still play at a high level

:  liny195 @ 4.12.2018, 6:24
The lack of production from veteran running back Jonathan Stewart (10 carries http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/will-hernandez-jersey , -5 yards this preseason, including a costly fumble on Friday night vs. the New York Jets) has New York Giants fans up in arms. The Giants signed Stewart, who spent 10 seasons with the Carolina Panthers, to a two-year, $6.8 million contract in the offseason.Off what we have seen so far, and with Fridays three-carry, -7 yard performance fresh in our minds, Giants coach Pat Shurmur was asked during his media conference call on Saturday to assess the play of the 31-year-old Stewart.Shurmur is putting more stock in Stewarts pedigree than his preseason numbers.I just think hes a veteran player and hes played really well for a lot of seasons. If you just look at the raw production you say oh my goodness, but I think weve just gotta take it for what it is, the coach said. I know he can play football and play at a high level. Were just counting on that.That would indicate that despite Stewarts struggles it is a pretty safe bet that he will be part of the season-opening 53-man roster.Here are more takeaways from Shurmurs Saturday afternoon conference call.On the struggles with run blocking We need to do a better job in all areas, whether its getting on the right people. There werent really missed assignments, so to speak, weve just really gotta get off the double teams a little quicker and hit it up in there and give the runner a little more room to get his feet going.On the effective use of play-action passing First off I got to it a little quicker. They [the Jets] were playing the run. The good news is some of our play actions were believable and that allowed us to get down the field a little bit with a little extra protection and then hit on some of our deep balls.Theres some games where its more effective than others. They were making a very strong effort to stop the run, so the next phase of it is try to take advantage of that a little bit.On moving Eli Manning out of the pocket occasionally I believe every quarterback needs to use his legs to some degree. And I do believe you have to move the launch point for the throws, which sometimes means the play-action game or moving the pocket. I believe in that, and I do believe any quarterback can do it to some degree. Eli moves around well enough to where he can execute some of that stuff.Week 3 picks, predictions against the point spread Use this as your open thread for todays non-Giants games.Well http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/b.j.-goodson-jersey , last week was not good. But were ready to bounce back. Lines make a little more sense after two weeks of play rather than one, so lets see if we can use that information to make a quick turnaround.Remember these picks are strictly for fun and entertainment purposes and please for your sake do not take these picks as gambling advice. Lines used here come from the Westgate Las Vegas via OddsShark. Home team in CAPS.Jets (+3) over CLEVELANDThe Jets and Browns are probably pretty close (theyre 25th and 27th by Football Outsiders DAVE, which still includes preseason projections). Both sides look to have the advantage on defense (Browns sixth in defensive DVOA vs Jets 25th offense and Jets second-ranked defense vs Clevelands 30th-ranked offense). Coaching could have a big impact here and that advantage 鈥?goes to the Jets? Like, pretty easily, right? What a world.NOTE: Well, Baker Mayfield and the Browns had other ideas here.MINNESOTA (-17) over BuffaloStealing from last week: theres a point where the line would be so high Id seriously consider the Bills. Seventeen points aint it. Buffalos offensive line and skill players against the Minnesota defense? Id need at least three touchdowns to think about it.HOUSTON (-6) over GiantsBoth of these teams are 0-2, but theyre very different 0-2s. Houston should at least be 1-1, possibly 2-0. Theyre still 11th in Football Outsiders DVOA. The Giants, meanwhile, should absolutely be an 0-2 team and it would be hard to spot them less than a touchdown on the road.[FanPulse: Each week we survey 100+ fans at each of our 32 SB Nation NFL communities. This week, Giants fans here at Big Blue View predicted a 6-point Texans win while our Texans site, Battle Red Blog, predicted a 1-point Texans win. Find more results here]KANSAS CITY (-6.5) over San FranciscoTheres going to be a point when Patrick Mahomes stops throwing touchdowns at will, but Im not sure thats going to be this week against a 49ers defense that ranks 21st in yards allowed per drive through two weeks. San Francisco only stays close in this game if the offense can take advantage of Kansas Citys league-worst defense, but the offense has been off to a slow start.New Orleans (+3) over ATLANTAAtlantas defensive losses were felt a little against the Carolina Panthers Christian McCaffrey had 14 receptions for 102 yards and theyre probably be felt even more against the Saints. I wouldnt be surprised if this game is pretty high scoring New Orleanss defense has cratered back to 25th in DVOA so Im going to ride with the better offense.Green Bay (-3) over WASHINGTONWashington might be one of the weirdest teams to figure out through two weeks a blowout win over Arizona (good!) and a not close loss to Indianapolis (huh?). The defense has been the standout, but thats also been from forcing a high rate of turnovers theyre fourth in turnovers forced per drive. Thats probably not going to happen against Aaron Rodgers, one and a half legs or not.PHILADELPHIA (-3.5) over IndianapolisThe Eagles snuck out a 1-1 record with Nick Foles http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/che...ck-rosas-jersey , though that could have easily been 0-2. Its not just that the returning Carson Wentz is replacing Foles, hes replacing the worst possible version of Foles. Thats about as big a quarterback upgrade you can get, no matter what you feel about how Wentz will perform in his first game back from his torn ACL.Indianapoliss defense 26th in yards allowed per drive is exactly the unit youd like to break him in against.MIAMI (-3) over OaklandMiami is one of the most surprising teams of the early season. They have the top defense in the league by DVOA through two weeks thanks to a high turnover rate. That might not help against a risk-averse Derek Carr, but rushing Carr to throw could force some bad decisions. Meanwhile, the Raiders defense cant stop much of anything, which is good for an ok Dolphins offense.BALTIMORE (-5.5) over DenverBaltimore is somewhere between the dominant force against Buffalo and the just competitive enough but mistake prone version we saw against Cincinnati. Denver is a 2-0 greatly aided by playing two home games early in the season. Baltimore should be the better team top-10 in both DVOA and DAVE and the defense has been fantastic, even when accounting for the Bengals game first in yards allowed per drive and fourth in points allowed per drive.Cincinnati (+3) over CAROLINAThe Bengals have been on fire lately. The switch to Bill Lazor as offensive coordinator has really helped Andy Dalton work out some of the struggles he typically shows. That could be a factor against a Carolina defense that has been off to a slow start 22nd in yards allowed per pass attempt. However, the Bengals might need to rely on someone other than A.J. Green since the Panthers have allowed just 42 yards per game to opposing No. 1 wide receivers.JACKSONVILLE (-6.5) over TennesseeThe Jaguars defense is either facing Blaine Gabbert or a less than 100 percent Marcus Mariota. Sometimes picks dont have to be complicated.Chargers (+7) over RAMSThe Rams have played like the better team coming in, but a touchd ...

Odell Beckhams frustration shows after Giants latest loss His team is 1-3.

On top of which www.giantsauthorizedshops.com , the spectacular impact plays New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has routinely made throughout his career have been nowhere to be found so far this season.After Sundays 33-18 loss to the New Orleans Saints, during which Beckham had 7 receptions for 60 yards, Beckhams frustrations were apparent.Im doing everything I can. I put my all into this. I have sacrificed everything, especially coming into this year. I have sacrificed and made personal changes, doing all I can to be the best teammate and bring everything that I can every Sunday, a discouraged Beckham said after Sundays loss. Its disappointing when you have to leave like this. You work way too hard five or six days a week for 60 minutes of football. I hate to get out there and waste those 60 minutes.Beckhams return to health, the drafting of Saquon Barkley and the rebuilding of the offensive line were expected to result in an offensive resurgence for the Giants.It hasnt happened.The Giants have still not scored 30 points in a game since the 2015 season finale, coached by Tom Coughlin. In all three of their losses this season they havent even reached the 20-point plateau. They have 73 points in four games, an average of 18.25.Beckham has 30 catches, a pace that would net him a career-high 120 for the season. He has no touchdowns, though, and the same number of game-changing impact plays. He is averaging a career-worst 11.03 yards per catch.Sunday New York Giants Womens T-Shirt , Beckham had two catches for -4 yards at the half. Quarterback Eli Manning overthrew him twice when he had separation, including once on a fairly deep sideline route. He went to the locker room before halftime to receive IV fluids.Beckham seemed despondent at times during the game. Unusual for the seemingly always energetic Beckham, he was often spotted on the sidelines sitting or standing quietly by himself.I didnt sense frustration, I saw a competitive guy, keeping himself in it, said coach Pat Shurmur. We all know hes competitive, and he wants to win and he wants to do anything he can to help us.Beckham, of course, was asked for his thoughts on the struggling offense.It seems like it shouldnt be this hard, but it is. We have to come out with that energy that we had last week [vs. the Houston Texans], Beckham said. Like I said, everybody has to be hitting New York Giants Hats , its not one person doing this, it has to be everybody. Its a team sport, so we just have to pull together.Why hasnt Beckham, as he has done so often in the past, been able to turn short catches into big plays?I dont know, I just have to get in there and watch the film. Its one play away still, I have been getting double and triple teamed for the past five years, nothing has changed, he said. Safeties over the top, linebackers dropping. Like I said, its really about all the pieces coming together.So, what is his frustration level?I dont have a Richter scale of where the frustration level is New York Giants Womens Hoodie , he said. Its definitely frustrating, you put your all into this, like I said. Its one game we lost, you have to put your hard hat on and go back to work tomorrow. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports is reporting that the New York Giants have been receiving trade offers for superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.The report isnt surprising, as the Giants have signaled to the rest of the NFL that they are open for business and willing to listen to trade offers. The Giants trading Beckham away would, however, be surprising. The team just signed Beckham to a blockbuster 5-year contract this year, and he remains one of the very best receivers in the entire NFL. Beckhams age and the length of his contract means that he would be under contract and in the prime of his career when the Giants make their eventual move from Eli Manning to the next quarterback. Whoever that might be would likely be landing in a much better environment to succeed with Beckham than without him. However, the language of the report, as well as Dave Gettlemans hesitance to embrace Beckham on the team and Pat Shurmurs public rebuff of Beckhams public criticism should give pause. It might not be written in stone that Beckham is looked at by the Giants brass as a cornerstone piece of the next era of Giants offensive football.

Sam Darnold was only 2 years old when his grandfather passed away

:  liny195 @ 4.12.2018, 6:03
Authentic Ryan Smith Jersey , so he never got to know the Marlboro Man.Dick Hammer left behind a legacy of larger-than-life tales, though, and the New York Jets' newest quarterback has heard them all. Family gatherings have been filled with the stories of Hammer's athletic accomplishments as a college basketball player and a U.S Olympian in volleyball, his bravery as a firefighter and his creative side as an actor."My mom always tells me how much I remind her of him," Darnold said Friday during his introductory news conference as the No. 3 overall pick of the NFL draft at the Jets' training facility.Darnold's mother Chris, sitting in the front row with her husband Mike and daughter Franki, wiped tears from her eyes as Sam mentioned his late grandfather."When Sam was really little, we used to tease him because we would say he got all the DNA because he could do anything," said Chris Darnold, wearing a Jets cap. "He was big like his dad, got his dad's girth. He got my dad's agility and athletic ability. My dad was the type of person that could pick up a game by just watching someone play."Sam's a lot like that."
#Jets first-round pick Sam Darnold reminds his mother of his late grandfather Dick Hammer, a former U.S. Olympic volleyball player who was also the Marlboro Man. More from @DWAZ73: s://t.co/iBfJp4B4v8 pic.4UkYYa3Sfe AP NFL (@AP_NFL) April 27, 2018
Hammer was 69 when he died in October 1999, just four months after Sam's second birthday. He played basketball at USC and helped lead the Trojans to the 1954 Final Four. Hammer picked up volleyball after his hoops days were over and ended up making the United States' 1964 Olympic volleyball team that competed in Tokyo.He was a captain in the L.A. County Fire Department and played Captain Dick Hammer yep http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.co...n-jensen-jersey , named after himself in the first season of the 1970's television drama "Emergency!" Hammer also landed a gig as the cowboy hat-wearing Marlboro Man in the cigarette company's advertising campaigns, despite not being a regular smoker.It is that innate ability to pick up anything and excel at it that Darnold's mom has always seen in her son, who was also a terrific basketball player in high school."An example was when (Sam) played in a volleyball tournament with my daughter, who was playing in college (at Rhode Island) at the time and she was missing out on a partner for co-ed doubles," Chris said. "He was all like, 'Uh, sure, OK, I'll go play some volleyball.' We're watching them play and they got to the playoffs and he's doing all these dinking serves and playing like he's been playing his whole life. That is a lot of what my Dad was like."Dick Hammer would certainly think his grandson is a chip off the old block. And, Darnold now has a chance to create his own legacy.The former USC star quarterback from Capistrano Beach, California, played just two seasons for the Trojans, but showed enough eye-popping ability as a playmaking passer to be rated by many as the No. 1 player at his position heading into the draft.Darnold is now tasked with helping lift a franchise that has been seeking a savior since the glory days of Joe Namath nearly 50 years ago. The Jets have been to just one Super Bowl you know, the one Broadway Joe delivered after his guarantee in 1969. That's a lot of pressure for a kid who won't even turn 21 until June Womens Chris Godwin Jersey , but Darnold is becoming fully aware of what he's getting into."Winning a Super Bowl is everyone's goal entering a season, whether I'm a backup or whether I'm starting quarterback," he said. "Everyone on the team wants to win a Super Bowl. That's the goal for everyone. Anything short of that is a failure, and we're aware of that. Everyone's aware of that. And whatever my role is, I'm going to star in that role to work us toward that Super Bowl."Darnold already has a prominent place in Jets history, being the highest-drafted quarterback by the team since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger."Getting that phone call, it changed my life," Darnold said. "I know it's going to change my life, and I'm very confident here that we're going to win some games, and I think I'm going to be here for a long time."Coach Todd Bowles said Thursday night after New York drafted Darnold that the team won't necessarily throw him into the fire, but also won't hold him back. That means the rookie could have a chance at starting if he can beat out veterans Josh McCown, the starter last year, and Teddy Bridgewater, who's still recovering from a knee injury that threatened his career nearly two years ago."There's a ton of room for growth Authentic DeSean Jackson Jersey , and that's the thing I'm really excited about," Darnold said. "Just being 20 years old, I know that there's a lot of room for growth, but I'm also very confident in my ability to go out there and play. But that being said, I'm going to do what the coaches ask me to do, and I'm going to come in here and learn right away and just go about it that way."NOTES: The Jets announced they released wide receiver-kick returner JoJo Natson, wide receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow, offensive tackle Korren Kirven and punter Ben Turk. Super Bowl-winning Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy is the next inductee into the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Ring of Honor.The Bucs made the announcement Tuesday, saying Dungy will be honored at a halftime ceremony during the club's nationally televised home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 24.Dungy won a Super Bowl as a player with the Steelers in 1978. He coached the Bucs from 1996-2001, compiling 54-42 regular-season record and transforming a struggling franchise into a championship contender.His .563 winning percentage with Tampa Bay is the best in club history. The Bucs made the playoffs four times, including 1999, when they reached the NFC championship game. He was fired after the 2001 season, and his replacement, Jon Gruden Womens Vita Vea Jersey , led Tampa Bay to its only Super Bowl title the following year.Gruden was inducted into the Ring of Honor last season. The Bucs have not made the playoffs since 2007 and haven't won a postseason game since their 2002 Super Bowl run.Dungy, meanwhile, went on have a highly successful run from 2002 to 2008 as coach of the Indianapolis Colts, winning the Super Bowl capping the 2006 season.The coach, who still lives in Tampa, was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.Dungy will be the 13th inductee into the Ring of Honor, a group that includes Hall of Famers Lee Roy Selmon, Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks, as well as former coach John McKay, Doug Williams, and the late Bucs owner Malcolm Glazer.

Vinny Curry adds a veteran presence to Bucs locker room.

:  liny195 @ 4.12.2018, 5:54
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are well into the groove of training camp as week two approaches. By all accounts Kwon Alexander Jersey , the team has had very good practices and there seems to be great competition all over the field. One player who seems to have added a different dimension to this team is Vinny Curry. Curry, is coming off of a Super Bowl Championship with the Philadelphia Eagles, and is hoping to bring another one to Tampa Bay. Ever since the end of free agency and then the draft, I have been saying that this Tampa Bay defensive line is amongst the top in the NFL. Curry echoed some loud words after practice on Sunday that should get all Buccaneer fans excited. You know what man, we had a great team last year and great defensive linemen. You know, from the ones to the twos, we rotated every four plays. Were building that here, Curry said.We have just as much talent on our defense here in Tampa as we did in Philly. Of course, the results need to show on the field for that statement to be true, but it is good to hear. It has been long overdue since Tampa Bay has put a Super Bowl caliber defense out on the field. Chemistry for any team is important, but its especially important along both the offensive and defensive lines. You want the guys in the trenches to be on the same page and have each others back at all costs. Developing that bond not only on, but off the field Cheap Jameis Winston Jersey , is something that Curry has been working to do ever since he arrived in Tampa. Thats one thing you know we pride ourselves on. Like Ive said already, everyone is getting to know one another. By this time next week, well be a totally different team from today, Curry said. You know what Im saying? Thats the goal, to come out here and kind of get better each day, learn something new and get down that chemistry as soon as possible.Every player the Buccaneers acquired along the defensive line this off-season has won a championship. That helps for obvious reasons, but it really should help this Buccaneer team. Its been so long since the city has seen a constant winner, let alone Super Bowl contender. For that experience to come over and teach the existing young guys what it takes to win is huge and should only help this team in the long run. My biggest thing is Im telling everyone: winning is contagious. You know, its contagious man, Curry said. If you go out there and put your heart on the line and everybody is on the same page, thats really where you get your click in. Thats really where you get, Damn that team is fun to watch Ryan Fitzpatrick Jersey , Curry said. So far, without playing a single snap for the team, it looks like Curry has already made a huge impact off the field. The team can only hope the impact on the field is even greater. The National Football League today announced that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 2. This is the second consecutive NFC Offensive Player of the Week Award for Fitzpatrick. Against the Philadelphia Eagles, Fitzpatrick completed 27-of-33 passes (81.8 pct.) for 402 yards (12.18 yards per attempt), with four touchdowns and one interception, compiling a passer rating of 144.4. Fitzpatrick, who threw four touchdowns in Week 1 against New Orleans, is just the third player in NFL history to throw at least four touchdowns in each of his teams first two games of the season, joining Kansas Citys Patrick Mahomes (2018) and New Englands Drew Bledsoe (1997). He also joins New Englands Tom Brady (2011) and Carolinas Cam Newton (2011) as the only players in NFL history to record at least 400 passing yards in each the first two games of the season. He is the first NFL quarterback to throw for at least 400 yards in consecutive games since Philip Rivers in 2013.Fitzpatrick is the third player since the 1970 NFL/AFL merger to record consecutive games with 400 yards passing and four touchdowns, joining Miamis Dan Marino (12/2/84 vs. L.A. Raiders-12/9/84 at Indianapolis) Tennessees Billy Volek (12/13/04 vs. Kansas City-12/19/04 at Oakland). He is the first player since the merger to do so in the first two games of the season. He is the only player in NFL history to throw for at least 400 yards and four touchdowns in each of the first two games of the season. Fitzpatricks 151.5 passer rating is the highest mark through two games since the 1970 NFL/AFL merger (minimum 40 pass attempts). Fitzpatrick is the first player in the NFL to post consecutive games with a passer rating of 140 or higher since 2015 (Seattles Russell Wilson, 11/29/15 vs. PIT-12/6/15 at MIN). He is the first player in Buccaneers history to do so. Fitzpatrick threw two 75-yard touchdowns against Philadelphia. He is the first player in franchise history to record multiple touchdown passes of 75 yards or more in the same game and the first player to do so since Week 1 of 2017 (Alex Smith, at New England Cheap Carlton Davis Jersey , 9/7/17). He has four touchdown passes of 50+ yards through the first two games of the season, tying N.Y. Jets QB Joe Namath (1972) for the most 50+ yard touchdown passes through the first two games of the season in NFL history. Fitzpatrick joins Josh Freeman (Weeks 5 & 9, 2010) and Brad Johnson (Weeks 9 & 14, 2002) as the only players in team history to earn NFC Offensive Player of the Week multiple times in the same season. He is the first ever player in franchise history to win NFC Player of the Week in consecutive weeks. This is Fitzpatricks seventh career Offensive Player of the Week award, having earned the honor twice this season as well as with the St. Louis Rams (Week 12, 2005), the Houston Texans (Week 13, 2014) and the New York Jets (Weeks 14 & 16, 2015; Week 2, 2016).This report comes courtesy of the Buccaneers Communications Department.

Matt Ryan barked out a play

:  liny195 @ 4.12.2018, 5:44
Authentic DeSean Jackson Jersey , took the snap and zipped a pass to the receiver who played his college ball at Alabama.Nope, it wasn't Julio Jones.He's sitting out the team's voluntary offseason program. So it was Calvin Ridley a first-round draft pick from the Crimson Tide who got a chance to shine during a 90-minute practice Wednesday.But, for a team with Super Bowl aspirations, it was impossible to ignore the absence of No. 11.So, where's Julio?The Falcons say it's no big deal, even as they talk constantly about the importance building camaraderie and trust in each other during the voluntary offseason workouts, a big part of coach Dan Quinn's much-ballyhooed "Brotherhood ."Jones said his absence has nothing to do with any hard feelings toward the only team he's played with in the NFL, but he's vague about his reasons for staying away and it seems fairly obvious that he's trying to send a message about his desire for a new contract.While Jones still has three seasons remaining on the last deal he signed a five-year, $71.3 million extension with $47 million in guaranteed money his average salary is now less than at least a half-dozen receivers around the league. Most tellingly, recent deals with Tampa Bay's Mike Evans and Cleveland's Jarvis Landry seemed to set a whole new financial bar for the NFL's top pass catchers, a list that certainly includes Jones.In addition, he surely took note when the Falcons made quarterback Matt Ryan the league's NFL's first $100 million man , agreeing to a new deal that assures the quarterback of at least that much in guaranteed money and could average out to as much as $30 million annually over five seasons.Rarely flustered Adam Humphries Jersey , Ryan got a bit testy when asked about missing out on a chance to work with his favorite receiver during OTAs."We'll have our chances to work together," the QB said. "I'm not going to go into it more than that. It's not really anybody else's business."Jones has gone silent on social media and hasn't spoken in months to the Atlanta media, but he did provide some reassuring words to Falcons fans when the gossip site TMZ caught up with him last weekend as he was leaving a swanky restaurant in West Hollywood ."Everyone wants a story right now. There's no story to be told," Jones insisted. "I'm just working on getting myself better. I'm just working on myself right now. That's all that is. There's no bad blood between me and the team or anything like that."Jones insisted that he plans to remain with the Falcons for the rest of his career, echoing a sentiment expressed by owner Arthur Blank."Everybody on the outside (is) trying to look in and trying to destroy what we built there," Jones said. "I'm not going nowhere. I'll be there. I love the team. I love the organization. I love everybody there. I'm good."Still, Jones' decision to skip OTAs has been a major topic of conversation around Atlanta, with fans and sports talk radio weighing in almost daily on his future with a team that reached the Super Bowl during the 2016 season and the second round of the playoffs last season.Everyone can rest easy, Quinn insisted.Jones has assured his coach that he'll be at the team's mandatory minicamp, which is scheduled for June 12-14."The guys who are really close to him, obviously they keep up," Quinn said outside the locker room after practice. "It's not like they don't hang out and talk on the phone and do stuff together. They may not be spending the amount of time here, in the building Demar Dotson Jersey , that they normally do. But that doesn't mean they don't spend time away from here. So, no issues on our end."I know he's working really hard. I've had contact with him, obviously. We can't wait to get him back, here, with the guys. But he's really putting good work in. I think we'll see the results of that work, hopefully soon."The 29-year-old Jones is a huge weapon in the Falcons' offense , using his rare combination of speed, size and power to shake off constant double-teams. Last season, he had 88 catches for 1,444 yards his fourth straight season with at least 80 receptions and 1,400 receiving yards. In 2015, he had one of the greatest seasons ever by an NFL receiver 136 catches (tied for the second most in league history behind Marvin Harrison's 143) and 1,871 yards (surpassed only by Calvin Johnson's record of 1 Chris Conte Jersey ,954) .Ryan certainly recognizes the bond he has with his favorite receiver.They've been together since 2011. They won't be any trouble getting back in sync, Ryan said confidently.As soon as Jones shows up, that is."No concern," Ryan said. "He's always been extremely well prepared coming into seasons, going into games. Talk about being on the same page: we've played together for a long time. When he's healthy and he feels good , like he does right now ... it's very easy to get on the same page. He's so talented. So, we're fine."Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at pnewberry1963 . His work can be found at s://apnews/search/paul%20newberryTraining camp kicking is the equivalent to fart noise To say the Bucs have had field goal kicking issues over the past nine seasons would be a massive understatement. In fact, since cutting Matt Bryant after the 2008 season, the Bucs have had Shane Andrus, Mike Nugent, Kyle Brindza, Connor Barth, Rian Lindell Ryan Smith Jersey , Patrick Murray, Roberto Aguayo (the pain is still too fresh) and Nick Folk handling kicking duties. Going through eight kickers in nine seasons has been the cause of great anxiety amongst Bucs fans. Enter Chandler Catanzaro to save the day. The Bucs signed the former New York Jet and gave him a three-year contract worth $9.75-million, with $3.2-million guaranteed. The guaranteed part is crucial as it basically solidifies Catanzaro as the starter for the 2018 season. Why is that important? Because for all intents and purposes, it makes what happens in training camp kind of pointless. A reference:Dont get me wrong, practice is important, but it doesnt really matter until the games start. Nick Folk out-kicked Roberto Aguayo in training camp, went 6-for-7 (85%) in the preseason, and then proceeded to go a disastrous 6-for-11 (54%) in four games to start the season. Real game pressure matters in evaluating kickers. The B ucs will be relying on Catanzaro to continue kicking at his career average of 84% in order to feel confident in him heading into the 2019 season. I do have a note of concern regarding Catanzaro. His field goal percentage from 40-49 yards has decreased every year hes been in the league. Since his rookie season hes 13-for-13 from 40-49 yards inside a dome, but hes only 21-for-30 (70%) from 40-49 yards in open air stadiums. The Bucs only play three games in domed stadiums this year. Gulp!Why did they cut Matt Bryant again?

The Browns signed running back Duke Johnson to a new four-year

:  liny195 @ 4.12.2018, 5:35
contract in June that seemed to project that hed be playing a similar role on offense to the one he filled in his first three seasons.Johnson ran the ball 259 times and caught 188 passes over that span Womens Kevin Zeitler Jersey , which works out to over nine touches a game. Over the first eight games of this season, however, Johnson never had more than six touches in a single game and averaged four fewer touches a week than he had over his first three seasons.That usage pattern changed in the teams first game since the firing of head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Johnson ran the ball once and caught nine passes, including two touchdowns, in the loss to the Chiefs. Interim head coach Gregg Williams said on Tuesday that hed like to see even more in the future.It was good to see that with Duke Youth Baker Mayfield Jersey , Williams said, via the teams website. Just like what we have talked about with other people, I think he can do more and he will. He had a good fire about him, and he will continue to improve too. We need him to improve.Given the issues the Browns have had at receiver this year, it was surprising they gave Johnson so little use in the passing game. It does not appear that they will be continuing down that path the rest of the year. It is becoming a weekly pattern with the Cleveland Browns and the NFL.The Browns play on Sunday Youth Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey , the officials miss a blatant call that would favor the Browns, and word eventually leaks out during the week that the league office knows the call was wrong.Yet nothing ever changes.Such is the case again this week as unnamed source familiar with the leagues thinking said that the NFL realizes Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Jordan Whiteheads helmet-to-helmet hit on quarterback Baker Mayfield should have been a penalty, according to ESPNs Pat McManamon.Not only do the Browns and their fans have to deal with another blown call, but also with the absurdity of referee Shawn Hochulis explanation that there was no penalty because runners are allowed to be hit in the head.The calls keep happening and the league keeps apologizing, and Browns players have obviously grown tired of it all. Last Friday it was defensive end Myles Garrett who voiced his displeasure over the way the refs treat the Browns Youth Nick Chubb Jersey , and on Tuesday it was wide receiver Jarvis Landrys turn to speak up for his teammates, according to Mary Kay Cabot at cleveland.com:Head coach Hue Jackson would seem to be a in position to strongly advocate for the safety of his players and for more equitable treatment from the referees, but continues to take a passive approach to the situation, as he explained on Monday when asked about the Mayfield hit, according to clevelandbrowns.com:It may come off as whining Youth David Njoku Jersey , especially coming from a team that is 2-4-1 on the season and just 3-35-1 since the start of the 2016 season, but that doesnt make Landrys comments any less true, or Jacksons lack of fire any more palatable.Given the way this season has gone, it also means that the Browns should not expect anything different from the officials or league office the rest of the way.
