Four games are on https://www.thesaintsfanshop.com/Alvin-Kamara-Jersey deck for late kickoff in NFL Week 5 Josh Hill Color Rush Jersey , with the vast majority looking like snooze fests. Here are the matchups.Oakland Raiders (1-3) at Los Angeles Chargers (2-2)Minnesota Vikings (1-2-1) at Philadelphia Eagles (2-2)Los Angeles Rams (4-0) at Seattle Seahawks (2-2)Arizona Cardinals (0-4) at San Francisco 49ers (1-3)The NFC West is playing each other, and no team is looking better than the Rams right now in that division. Can the Cardinals finally pickup their first win of the year? The Chargers hope that they aren’t the road team, but that may not be the case. The Vikings and Eagles NFC Championship rematch draws the Joe Buck and Troy Aikman duo in FOX’s Game of the Week, as most of the country will be able to check that out. Both squads desperately need a win, and it should be a mildly entertaining affair at Lincoln Financial Field. The Super Bowl hangover is realCoaches get poached, players get poached, and guys retire.You’ve played more games than most other teams resulting in a longer season.Your off-season as a player is shorter and more busy with presidential visits, parades https://www.thesaintsfanshop.com/Craig-Robertson-Jersey , and lots of celebrating.Then you get the mark of the beast on your back as every team in the league is gunning for you the following year, bekawz yew arghh dee sOOpa Bole shamps! Oh, and those teams have also copied https://www.thesaintsfanshop.com/Michael-Thomas-Jersey your style and gotten better to boot....pun intended.Deep defensive line rotation - CheckPay premium for backup QB- CheckDepth on offensive line - CheckEvery move made in the Saints off-season was calculated with an image in mind of how they wanted this team built.The signing of Patrick Robinson, the ode to Cold Pizza by getting their own Derek Barnett when they moved up to draft Marcus Davenport.Bringing back Jermon Bushrod and drafting Will Clapp, to go along with the continued development of Cameron Tom, insured they’d have the necessary depth to sustain a long season.The continued success of the O-line as they fought through injuries to Andrus Peat and Terron Armstead last week and the season, you can see how those moves have payed off handsomely.Teddy Bridgewater was a name thrown around on Saints message boards for years and then wham, the Saints make a move to get him for a 2nd rounder and get their own version of Nick Foles.Davenport and Rankins have combined for 9 sacks as primary nickel rushers and the latter’s career year could be attributed to the emergence of David Onyemata as a legit run defender.Meanwhile consistent play from edge starters Cameron Jordan and Alex Okafor has resulted in another 8 sacks.I haven’t even mentioned a scary offense lead by Drew Brees that’s scoring points at a rate even higher than their SB winning team. The Saints voodo is in full effect. They’ve experienced similar luck the Eagles did Cameron Meredith Jersey , with regards to injuries and catching other teams at the right time.The Saints locker room and coaching staff are bring a new level of accountability to the team this year.Fact is when the Eagles enter the Superdome Sunday they’ll find themselves involved in somewhat of a Mortal Kombat mirror match. They’ll face last years version of themselves and this, ironically enough, could make them dangerous. Competition can sometimes kick things into a different gear.Let’s take a look at a few points that could be key in the Saints getting a win on Sunday.The Golden TateEric Hartline-USA TODAY SportsFor whatever reason Tate has given the Saints more problems than the Harmon’s in American Horror Story.There are multiple articles out there pointing out he’s a Saints killer and that would seem to be accurate. Since 2014 he’s played 4 games vs New Orleans and has accounted for 440 yards of offense with 5 TD’s. His teams have won 3 of the 4 games with the Saints. The streak stopped last year vs the Lions.The Saints aren’t the 7-9 teams they were during those years and are currently a freight train in the NFC. Gold-dust Tate may get his but the results could look more like 2017 than 2014-2016.3rd downs will be paramount picturesSteve Flynn-USA TODAY SportsThe Eagles time of possession sits at 32:58 on the year, good for 2nd behind only New Orleans.Even though they lack a consistent run game they are finding ways to convert 3rd downs and extend drives They are ranked 12th in the league with a 41% conversion rate.If you combine that with a scoring defense that’s only allowing 20.3 ppg and a 35% succession rate on 3rd down, you have a complimentary game plan which hopes to keep playing time away from the Saints. The Eagles are only scoring 22.0 ppg this year and cannot afford to get into a shootout.If New Orleans can break their plan early by scoring quickly, sustaining drives of their own, and keeping the Eagles offense off the field, this could end up a rout.Sustaining SwagBrad Rempel-USA TODAY SportsThe eagles have a -6 turnover differential suggesting they haven’t taken care of the ball very well this year.Not worst in the league but again Rick Leonard Color Rush Jersey , not contributing to winning football.Since the acquisition of Eli Apple the Saints defense has seen it’s opportunistic opportunities ratchet up closer to last year. They finally appear to be playing with some confidence.The caveat is the Eagles aren’t a heavily penalized team that hurts themselves. The secondary will have to make it’s own very opportunities. Carson Wentz has only thrown 4 INT’s this year.Fast defensive football leads to turnovers in other ways. They could facilitate that by feeding off the energy of a ruckus Superdome crowd, that should feel challenged from Payton’s last remark at a home game, suggesting they weren’t loud enough.I personally think this game could be closer than we think.Already in the chess match Doug Pederson is 1-0 as he beat Sean at golf earlier this year resulting in him getting a chance to pick the home jersey’s in today’s game, (though you could argue Saints got better end of deal with Away Color Rush Jersey’s).The Eagles have the ability to come in and execute the game plan they must use to win. It’s just up to them to do it.At least once a year the Saints drop a dud that you weren’t expecting and the Eagles will be doing everything in their power to get to 500.Will the Saints be prepared for desperation? Prediction: 28-20 Saints

Sure Billy Price Jersey , Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is a talented player who can make plays in the vertical passing game and on RPOs, but it is his ability to create that sets him apart. Mahomes can use his legs to extend plays and when he gets out of the pocket he does an incredible job throwing the ball from unconventional body positions. Mahomes drops back on this red-zone play. Not finding an open man, he ducks inside the edge defender to his left, they b-lines towards the pylon. Broncos safety Darian Stewart is not match for Mahomes’ speed and the young quarterback scores with ease.Here, Mahomes again ducks inside the pass rush and takes off to the left. This time, he keeps his eyes down field and is able to find his tight end Travis Kelce on the other side of the field for a first down. This is an incredible play by Mahomes, making a big-time pass when the play had seemingly broken down.One of the greatest quarterbacksand creators of all time was Steve Young. Young was a gritty player, who always found a way to get things done even in unconventional ways. Young was also a lefty, and I mention that because Mahomes is not, but he managed to keep this play a live by throwing a pass left-handed to wide receiver Tyreek Hill for the first down.It is insane how Mahomes keeps this play alive. First, it looks bad as Mahomes is forced to turn and attempt to scramble to the right side because defensive end Arik Armstead is pressuring him from the right side. Then it gets worse, as Cassius Marsh appears forcing Mahomes to reverse course and roll all the way back to the 24 yard line (20 yards behind the line of scrimmage). But Mahomes has a way of figuring things out, and he does just that as he finds wide receiver Chris Conley in the back of the endzone.Mahomes has an incredible ability to extend plays with his feet. His athletic ability means that the pass rush must keep outside contain at all times. This could be tough on defensive end Carl Lawson who loves the inside move. Even if a team does contain him, as the clips above showed Jessie Bates Jersey , he often sneaks out of the pocket inside of the edge rusher. Rushing every gap could solve that problem, but then every Chiefs receiver, tight end, and running back would be man coverage, and the Bengals would not have any help over the top. A defense could look to spy him, but that is likely occupying a linebacker who should be helping with Kelce. Mahomes’ ability to create makes a scary Chiefs’ offense even more fearsome. CINCINNATI (AP) — Head coach Marvin Lewis fired the defensive coordinator and installed himself in a dual role. Bengals players talked about their trip to Baltimore as a pivotal moment in the season, almost a last-stand opportunity. They wound up getting run over.Now what?A 24-21 loss in Baltimore on Sunday dropped the Bengals (5-5) three games behind Pittsburgh in the loss column for the AFC North lead with only six weeks left in the season. Their fourth loss in five games put them in danger of missing out on the playoffs for the third straight season. A shakeup of the coaching staff didn't make enough of a difference. Cincinnati is relegated to hoping that some of its injured players return and salvage a season that's gone from promising to unsettling."Everyone is frustrated," offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said Monday. "Everyone's nerves are a little frayed right now. Everyone is searching."Lewis decided to fire defensive coordinator Teryl Austin after the Bengals gave up 500 yards for the third straight game, a first in the Super Bowl era. He took over the coordinator's duties and hired fired Browns head coach Hue Jackson to help on the sidelines during games.It didn't go well in Baltimore.The Bengals ended that streak of 500-yard games, holding the Ravens to 403, but they were on the wrong end of more defensive history.Cincinnati allowed 265 yards rushing, the most during Lewis' 16 seasons as head coach. They've given up more than 200 yards rushing in back-to-back games — the Saints ran for 244 — and three times overall this season, also the most under Lewis.Ravens rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson ran for 117 yards in his first start, and rookie Gus Edwards ran for 115 and a touchdown. They're the first set of rookie quarterback and running back teammates to run for at least 100 yards in the same game in NFL history."You give up 200 yards rushing John Ross Jersey , I'm not going to be happy with that," Lewis said.Lewis was satisfied with how his first game on the sideline unfolded, although he felt "somewhat a little handicapped" by having so many responsibilities."Hopefully it will become more and more comfortable," Lewis said.Part of the reason for Austin's firing was the confusion on defense, which repeatedly had coverage breakdowns. The Bengals had a different type of challenge on Sunday with a rookie quarterback who ran a lot.Lewis simplified the game plan, but the defense still struggled against the run."He made us play fast," cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. "He put us in situations where we didn't have to do a whole lot of thinking."The Bengals were in control of the division after a 4-1 start. Now they're trying to make up a lot of ground on the Steelers, who won at Paul Brown Stadium to start Cincinnati's free fall.They're one of five teams at 5-5 in contention for the second wild card spot. The Chargers have the edge for the first wild card at 7-3. The Bengals host the Browns (3-6-1) on Sunday."It's a race now, and that's what we're here for," Lewis said after the game. "That's the thing: Now it's a race to the finish."A race they once led, but that's now getting away from them.BURFICT BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHTLinebacker Vontaze Burfict played with a sore hip that sidelined him the previous week. He was on the field for 36 of 79 plays, showing the effects of the injury — he had only four tackles. He also was involved in an altercation with guard Marshal Yanda after a play, part of a scrum on the ground involving several players. The officials didn't penalize anyone. Lewis said on Monday that the coaches' film doesn't show what happened in the altercation.

As feared Matthew Stafford Jersey , the Detroit Lions have shut down cornerback and All-Pro returner Jamal Agnew by placing him on the Injured Reserve. Agnew suffered a knee injury against the Green Bay Packers, though the extent of the injury is currently unknown. There is a chance he could return this season, but that all hinges on his recovery and the Lions’ playoff hopes.This leaves an opening at the punt returner position, though it will be hard to replace the electric second-year player. Brandon Powell, who starred in the preseason as a receiver and returner, could be given a shot. Elsewhere, receivers Golden Tate or TJ Jones are replacement options. Finally, Ameer Abdullah could possibly see action as a punt returner Frank Ragnow Jersey , though he has been limited to kick returns in recent years.To fill Agnew’s spot on the roster, the Lions have promoted linebacker Trevor Bates to the active roster. Bates survived the initial preseason cut, but was waived soon after for Marquis Flowers. Now with Flowers gone, Bates has reclaimed his spot. Bates made Pro Football Focus’s All-Preseason Team, and could see some action in a linebacker group that has struggled.The Lions also signed linebacker Garret Dooley to the practice squad. The 6-foot-2, 248 pound edge rusher from Wisconsin signed with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2018.Dooley was waived during preseason cuts, and was signed to their practice squad. However, he was released a month later on October 1. With the promotion of Eric Lee last month Kerryon Johnson Jersey , Dooley is the only pass rusher on the practice squad. GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Packers receiver Davante Adams is questionable for Green Bay’s season finale against the Detroit Lions because of a knee injury.Adams missed the first two days of practice this week, though he did say that he was optimistic that would be able to play. Adams needs to two catches and 134 yards receiving to set single-season franchise marks in each category.Other key players listed as questionable for Green Bay include cornerback Jaire Alexander (groin), left tackle David Bakhtiari (hip) and left guard Lane Taylor (knee).Receiver Randall Cobb (concussion) and linebacker Clay Matthews (back) are expected to play after coming off the injury report.For the Lions, receiver Kenny Golladay is questionable with a chest injury, while running back LeGarrette Blount is questionable with a knee injury. Defensive tackle Damon Harrison is also questionable with an ankle injury.Detroit also put defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson on injured reserve with a knee injury, and picked up defensive end Mitchell Loewen off waivers from the New Orleans Saints.

The Green Bay Packers might get injured inside linebacker Oren Burks back for their game Sunday against the Washington Redskins.The rookie appeared to be in line to open the season as the starter inside alongside Blake Martinez when he hurt his shoulder during warmups before a preseason game last month in Oakland.He was cleared on Wednesday to return to practice as a full participant.Depth has also been replenished at running back DeShone Kizer Jersey , where Aaron Jones figures to return on Sunday after missing the season's first two games after being suspended by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy.At the least, the returns of Burks and Jones will help the Packers on special teams. They have each shown the talent to contribute in other ways too.Jones, who was also bothered by a hamstring injury in the preseason, ran for 448 yards and four touchdowns on 81 carries last year. He had two 100-yard games, including 125 and a score on 19 carries in a win at Dallas on Oct. 8.Coach Mike McCarthy has said that Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery will remain atop the depth chart. Jones gives the Packers another option in the backfield with his slashing ability."Give the defense a little bit more to worry about," Williams said Thursday. "Aaron's just a sparkplug, really. He's always trying to open holes, especially if one's closed, he'll find another one really and bounce it outside."A third-round pick out of Vanderbilt, Burks moved up the depth chart after Jake Ryan was lost for the year in training camp with a torn ACL. The Packers traded for Antonio Morrison from the Colts to help with depth at inside linebacker after Burks went down. They also picked up Korey Toomer and James Crawford before the season started.Burks remains atop the depth chart inside next to Martinez, having raised his profile during the preseason."We'll see what the week brings us, McCarthy said before practice on Thursday. "You could see him progressing through training camp Tramon Williams Jersey , so it will be great to get him back out there."Burks played inside linebacker and safety in college. His experience in coverage could help against the Redskins and running back Chris Thompson, who leads Washington with 19 receptions.RODGERS UPDATEMcCarthy expected quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is playing with a left knee injury, to follow a practice plan similar to last week before the Vikings game. Saturday was the only day that Rodgers practiced last week. He played well, especially considering the injury, completing 30 of 42 passes for 281 yards and a touchdown in the 29-29 tie with Minnesota.This week, McCarthy gave the whole team off from practice on Wednesday and elected to do a walkthrough instead, feeling that his players could use a break after a season-opening night game followed by the overtime game against Minnesota. Rodgers was due to focus on rehab on Thursday.INJURY REPORTBesides Rodgers, CB Kevin King (groin) also missed practice. ... CB Davon House (biceps) and S Josh Jones (ankle) were limited. The Green Bay Packers are at full strength for Sunday afternoon’s game against the Los Angeles Rams in LA, with everyone who was listed on the team’s injury report on Friday being active for the game. That includes wide receiver Randall Cobb, backup offensive tackle Jason Spriggs, and rookie wideout Equanimeous St. Brown Jimmy Graham Jersey , the three players who got questionable designations on Friday.However, there is still one notable surprise on today’s inactive list: veteran cornerback Bashaud Breeland. The corner will be waiting at least one more week to make his Packers debut, even despite being listed with no injury designation on the final report. Still, he remained limited in practice all week with a continuing hamstring injury, which could be a reason for his continuing absence on gameday.Joining Breeland on the shelf today is a sextet of other healthy scratches. The other big name in the group is guard Justin McCray, who appears to have fallen out of favor with the coaching staff. McCray has gone from opening-week starter to gameday inactive over the span of a few games, as Byron Bell is now the starter at right guard and Lucas Patrick appears to be the preferred backup option at the position.For the Rams, both players who were listed as doubtful on Friday are out today. That group consists of second-year wideout Cooper Kupp, who has 438 receiving yards and five touchdowns on the year, and reserve linebacker Trevon Young.Keep it here for full coverage of this afternoon’s game.Packers InactivesQB Tim BoyleCB Bashaud BreelandCB Tony BrownILB Korey ToomerG Justin McCrayOT Alex LightWR J’Mon MooreRams InactivesRB Justin DavisDT Sebastian Joseph-DayRB John KellyWR Cooper KuppTE Johnny MundtOLB Trevon YoungDB Darious Williams

CINCINNATI (AP) — By the time the Ravens figured out what they needed to do Womens Jake Fisher Jersey , they were too far behind and their streak of five straight Thursday night wins was tottering.A second-half comeback wasn’t nearly enough as the Cincinnati Bengals held on for a 34-23 victory, riding a dominant start led by Andy Dalton’s four touchdown passes.“You better bounce back quick on a Thursday night and we didn’t do it quick enough tonight,” quarterback Joe Flacco said.The Ravens (1-1) were coming off one of their most impressive games, a 47-3 win over Buffalo that was the third-largest margin of victory in franchise history. Flacco was on target while playing little more than a half, throwing three touchdown passes.The Bengals (2-0) didn’t let him get into a rhythm until Cincinnati led by three touchdowns. Flacco was sacked on each of Baltimore’s first three possessions, and he forced a throw that was picked off Womens Carl Lawson Jersey , setting up the first of Dalton’s three touchdown passes to A.J. Green.Cincinnati built its 21-point lead by piling up 151 yards and 11 first downs. By comparison, the Ravens had only 27 yards and one first down during that span.By that time, the Ravens were in deep trouble. They’ve overcome a 21-point deficit to win a game only once in their history, beating the Arizona Cardinals 30-27 in 2011.Flacco threw a pair of touchdown passes, including a 21-yarder to John Brown that cut it to 28-23 with 9:35 left. He also fumbled with 2:42 to go — Shawn Williams stripped the ball from behind — setting up a field goal by Randy Bullock that closed it out.Flacco finished 32 of 55 for 376 yards with two touchdowns , two interceptions and four sacks.It wasn’t only the offense that had major issues early. The defense allowed Dalton to go 9 of 14 for 121 yards while leading Cincinnati to a 21-0 lead http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-kevin-huber-jersey , throwing TD passes to Green on three consecutive possessions. The Ravens switched up their coverages on Green but couldn’t stop him.“We did all that and he still made some great plays,” coach John Harbaugh said.The Ravens played most of the night without linebacker C.J. Mosley, who bruised his knee in the first quarter. Harbaugh said an exam found no ligament damage, but the linebacker could be sidelined for a while. His replacements struggled at times.“They fought and played hard, but they didn’t play perfect,” Harbaugh said. The Bengals have won three of their first four games for the first time since they opened 4-0 in a 2015 season that ended with a playoff berth.They didn’t make it to the postseason the last two seasons http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-randy-bullock-jersey , which led to a lot of speculation that head coach Marvin Lewis would be out before a last-minute course correction. The Bengals changed coaches on Lewis’ staff and made alterations to the roster, leaving quarterback Andy Dalton to say it “feels different than it has felt the last couple years.”Those new players and coaches had a role in the Bengals’ 37-36 comeback win in Atlanta on Sunday. Dalton hit A.J. Green in the end zone to cap a 16-play, 75-yard drive with six seconds left on the clock and the quarterback said that was a revealing moment for the team.“It shows what we can do,” Dalton said, via Albert Breer of SI.com. “There are different ways to win games. If we have to drive down at the end of the game to win it, we can do it. Sixteen plays. Our guys were gassed at the end Womens Nick Vigil Jersey , and they fought through it. When we needed to make a play we did. There were a couple fourth downs in there that were huge that brought us down to have the opportunity to score at the end. It shows a lot.”The Bengals will be at home the next two weeks against the Dolphins and Steelers and continued displays that they know how to finish off wins will set the team up well for the back end of their schedule.

NFL roster cuts 2018: Bengals announce practice squad The Cincinnati Bengals have announced the team’s initial practice squad.After constructing the 53-man roster on Saturday Cheap Jonah Williams Jersey , there were quite a few surprises and 24 players who were waived on Saturday were eligible to make the practice squad today.The practice squad can still change at any time (and will) but this is the initial list of players who made the cut.The Bengals also got a roster exemption this year to participate in the International Player Pathway Program. All four AFC North teams and all four NFC South teams are participating in the program this year. The NFC South participated in 2017, too. As part of the program, these teams will carry an additional overseas player on their practice squads in 2018, and the Bengals’ player is German tight end Moritz B枚hringer. He does not count toward the 10-man practice squad limit, so the Bengals can have 11 players on the practice squad, including B枚hringer this year.As of now, only 10 players are on the practice squad, with room for one more to be signed.Bengals’ 2018 practice squadTE Moritz B枚hringer (first-year player, Aalen [Germany])DT Andrew Brown (rookie, Virginia)HB Quinton Flowers (rookie, South Florida)H-B Jordan Franks (rookie, Central Florida)CB C.J. Goodwin (third-year player, California [Pa.])C Brad Lundblade (rookie, Oklahoma State)OT Kent Perkins (first-year player, Texas)CB KeiVarae Russell (third-year player, Notre Dame)WR Kermit Whitfield (first-year player Jonah Williams Jersey Womens , Florida State)LB Chris Worley (rookie, Ohio State)QB Christian Hackenberg (third-year player, Penn State)Interestingly not making the practice squad are running back Brian Hill — who did clear waivers — and rookie quarterback Logan Woodside. It seems the Bengals could look to sign a different quarterback to the practice squad to take that final spot.We’ll keep you updated as the Bengals make more roster moves, which could include one more player being added here.UPDATE: Christian Hackenberg is joining the Bengals’ practice squad as its final member. The quarterback has been a draft bust to this point, but will attempt to develop further in Cincinnati. The AFC North was the first division eliminated from the playoffs this season after the Ravens lost in their Wild Card game against the Chargers. Despite that, it’s been far from quiet since then. The Browns have a new head coach who has brought a very sharp change in culture with him, while the Steelers circus is picking up steam as the team focuses on helping out Mike Tomlin.Baltimore RavensRavens in talks with linebacker C.J. MosleyMosley, arguably the Ravens most important defender, is set to become a free agent this offseason. Mosely was a first round pick in 2014, and he has been one of the cornerstones for the defense ever since.The deal makes sense for both sides as Baltimore is clearly a better defense with Mosley out there, and the difference when he is not is evident. Mosley has also never been a guy to want change.“I’ve never been a guy that’s liked change or gone to a new place and start over,” Mosley told Michael DiRocco and Jenna Laine of ESPN last year when he was getting prepared for the Pro Bowl. “I went all four years at Bama. I was at one high school. I was at one middle school. So I’ll love to stay in Baltimore and continue my legacy and try to be the second-best linebacker to finish out there.”It looks like it is very likely that the Ravens will be able to retain their most important free agent this offseason.Cleveland BrownsFreddie Kitchens sets the tone for the new BrownsThe Browns went under a complete change in the middle of this season when they parted ways with Hue Jackson and Todd Haley. They made Gregg Williams the interim head coach, but Kitchens stole the show when he helped transform a struggling unit into a productive offense, and it didn’t hurt that he had quarterback Baker Mayfield looking like he was back at Oklahoma.One of the big things people noticed about the Browns after this change was their cocky attitude — aka their “it is us against the world” mentality. It was something we haven’t seen from the Browns in awhile, and it appeared to start with Mayfield at quarterback. Of course, this attitude will rub plenty of people the wrong way Jonah Williams Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , especially when you come out on the losing side after facing them. However, it is very apparent that it helped shift the Browns from a bottom feeder to a team to watch in 2019. Now the Browns have a guy with a similar attitude at head coach in Kitchens. “The only thing I changed, as a coach, was that it enabled me to be able to speak to the whole group, offensively. In the first team meeting, what we talked about was nothing to do with football,” Kitchens told reporters on what changed when he became offensive coordinator. “I asked them to trust me that I would always ask them to do what is best for them. They believed me. We were not calling any different plays, we were calling the same plays. I mean, a couple of gimmicks and stuff like that that you need, but the base of our offense was the same. You had to ask them to trust you. When you ask someone to trust you, if you ever disappoint them, you are not going to get the trust back – or not to the extent that it was. Once they trust you, they play a little harder, they make a little more effort to know what they are doing and it kind of just fell into place.”You can tell by the way Mayfield and other Browns players treated Hue Jackson following him being fired by the team that he wasn’t exactly the players’ favorite. He has been well documented in throwing players under the bus when things aren’t going right, which is something you can very plainly see Kitchens won’t be repeating by the way he is treating this opportunity. It is very obvious that a culture change is happening in Cleveland. One that many other NFL teams likely won’t enjoy, but it is something we will have to watch for a few seasons at the very least.Pittsburgh SteelersSteelers want to provide help with managing challenges and clock managementThis is something Bengals fans are all too familiar suffering from. Over the past few seasons it would be a miracle if Cincinnati had three timeout at the end of either half. They’d be even luckier to have any at all in some crucial situations. Clearly Jonah Williams Jersey 2019 , Pittsburgh is suffering from a similar problem with Mike Tomlin.Tomlin hasn’t won a challenge in two seasons, and he only won three in 2015. It has clearly become an issue as he ranks near the bottom of NFL coaches over that three-year span. His clock management also hasn’t been the greatest over that same timeframe. This is becoming a more common move though. Lewis even mentioned it was something Hue Jackson would help with when they brought him aboard after Lewis took over the defensive coordinator duties.Head coaches have plenty on their plates, this is a simple truth. Asking them to be constantly analyzing those situations can be unnecessarily difficult. Considering how important some challenges and time management are to games, it is honestly surprising that more teams don’t have a dedicated coach or manager to handle that.Antonio Brown calls out former coaches and players; promises exclusive interviewWhile Cleveland seems to be finding themselves, Pittsburgh has begun to take its place as the franchise with a tase for chaos. Brown has had a hand in essentially everything that’s put the Steelers in a bad light. He left a practice before their Week 17 playoff-deciding matchup with the Bengals, he left the stadium early during the game and he requested a trade not long afterwards. The Steelers dealt with enough drama with Le’Veon Bell during the season, Brown’s tirade has not made anything better.Art Rooney II has even come out and said that Brown hasn’t returned his calls, and he doubts that Brown will be on the team to start next season, despite no trade talks having occurred yet.Brown was also put on blast by former teammate Emmanuel Sanders and former coach Bruce Arians. Arians mentioned that he wouldn’t want to bring in Brown because of his personality calling him a diva, and the receiver responded on twitter.Sanders had called out the way Brown went about handling his business leading up to Week 17 and soon there after, which you can see here. Sanders wasn’t going to take the jab sitting down though.Really no one should be surprised by the lack of loyalty or maturity from Steelers players and coaches. I mean after all this was the scene at Bell’s locker after it was official that he wouldn’t be playing in 2018.Brown has also teased an exclusive interview coming soon. It looks like this could be getting a whole lot worse for the Steelers before it gets any better, and Bengals fans should have their popcorn ready, or get some re-fills if they’ve already ran out.

The Detroit Lions made some renovations in and around their locker room perhaps trying to turn some little changes into big ones that really matter under Matt Patricia .The Lions gave Patricia Jarrad Davis Jersey , the former New England defensive coordinator, his first head coaching job earlier this year in the hopes he could bring some of what he learned from the Patriots to Detroit.Patricia probably picked up at least a thing or two from Bill Belichick about how to keep as much about the organization private as possible.In a hallway at the Lions' training facility, doors are closed where there used to be openings allowing people passing by to peek in on position groups while they met or watched film.Inside the locker room, an area some players relaxed in recliners or played video games out in the open is now an extension of the training room behind a door.When players leave the locker room in the other direction, they pass through another door where there wasn't one last year."Coach is keeping the inside in," Detroit tight Michael Roberts said. "And, the outside out."The Lions have been on the outside looking in for decades during the playoffs.Since winning the 1957 NFL title, Detroit has one postseason victory and that lone win was on Jan. 5, 1992.Patricia was New England's defensive coordinator the previous six years and was on Belichick's staff for 14 seasons, a stretch that included three Super Bowl victories. He was hired in Detroit to replace Jim Caldwell, who was 36-28 over four seasons and 0-2 in the playoffs.Detroit general manager Bob Quinn T.J. Hockenson Detroit Lions Jersey , in his third season with the franchise, knows Patricia well because they worked together in New England for a dozen seasons.Long before he hired him, Quinn had already been talking up Patricia to team president Rod Wood."I kind of always thought, 'You know what? If I ever get my chance, Matt and I could probably work together,'" Quinn recalled.If the Patricia-Quinn reunion pans out and produces postseason success, the duo will be hailed in Michigan for pulling off a feat. If not, they will join a long list of general managers and coaches who failed to build an NFL winner in the Motor City.Here are some other things to know about the Lions:STAFFORD SAYSDetroit drafted Matthew Stafford No. 1 overall in 2009, desperately hoping he would become the franchise quarterback with enough talent and leadership to lead the team to playoff success.It hasn't happened.Stafford is 60-65 in the regular season and 0-3 in the playoffs."I don't hear about many people talking about a running back, or a receiver, or a defensive end's playoff career record T.J. Hockenson Jersey 2019 , but it's understandable," Stafford said. "We touch the ball on every single play and make a lot of critical plays and decisions. Whether it's fair or not is not up to me to judge."RB ROTATIONThe Lions will lean on multiple running backs this season, including three-time Super Bowl winner LeGarrette Blount, who signed as a free agent. Detroit drafted Kerryon Johnson in the second round and he looks ready to get some snaps on any down. Speedy and shifty Theo Riddick still appears to be one of the NFL's best pass-catching running backs."We have so much talent in our room," Johnson said. "And there great thing is no one will have to do it all."THROUGH THE AIRPassing is Detroit's strength with Stafford throwing to veteran receivers Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and second-year pro Kenny Golladay."The sky is the limit with us because we know we are good," Tate said. "The only thing that can stop us is us."LINE PROBLEMSOn both sides of the ball, Detroit appears to have potential problems.The Lions' offensive line did not create holes in the running game or protect Stafford well last year and there's no evidence the unit will be better. Detroit ranked last in rushing offense last year and Stafford was sacked a career-high 47 times.First-round pick Frank Ragnow is being counted on to start at guard or center. Guard T.J. Lang, who turns 31 early in the season, is showing signs of being a banged-up veteran and may not even be able to match the 13 games he played last season.Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah is playing with a franchise tag and seems to be slowing down because of injuries. Elsewhere on the line, Detroit appears to lack game-changing players that will command attention from opponents.Tuesday open thread: Who will win the NFC North? We’re five weeks into the 2018 NFL season White T.J. Hockenson Jersey , and I don’t think any team in the NFC North is where their fans expected them to be. The Packers, Vikings and Lions are all performing below expectations, as none of the three teams have winning records thus far. The Chicago Bears are surprisingly 3-1, but they haven’t beaten a good team yet (if there is such a thing as a “good team” right now), and they’re 0-1 in the division. The Bears may have a slight lead in the NFC North right now, but all four teams are certainly in the mix right now, and the Bears, Lions and Vikings all still have five division games left (the Packers, oddly, only have three left after playing all three teams thus far).So with the Lions heading into the bye at 2-3, it’s time to reflect on the division. Today’s Question of the Day is:Which team will win the NFC North?My answer: My body and mind are both physically rejecting the idea of the Bears winning the division. I just don’t believe enough in Mitchell Trubisky right now Youth T.J. Hockenson Jersey , even though that defense is likely capable of carrying a quarterback of that caliber. The Packers may get better as they get healthier on offense, but I don’t think their defense is all that good still, and Aaron Rodgers is still obviously limited. That leaves me with the Lions and Vikings, and Detroit is just way too flawed on defense to compete consistently week-to-week. Minnesota is plenty flawed, with an offensive line seriously struggling and a defense underwhelming. However, the talent on defense is just too good to be playing as they have thus far. I think they’ll get it turned around, and they have too many weapons on offense to struggle forever.I still think Minnesota has the best overall roster in the division, and I think at some point they pull it all together. That all being said, I think all four of these teams could realistically be in contention come December.Your turn.

MOBILE Jermaine Whitehead Jersey , ALA — After a day of the Senior Bowl practices not being available to the media due to inclement weather on Wednesday, the players were back on the field at Ladd-Peebles Stadium to make one last impression on scouts before they play the game on Saturday.The action was hotly contested and even brought two of the premier players at the event to fisticuffs at one point during the North practice. Sometimes some chippiness and animosity can be good, though. North PracticeThe North team began the day, and pads began popping quickly. Again, I focused mostly on the offensive and defensive lines throughout practice. USC offensive tackle Chuma Edoga has really impressed me this week. I was not a fan of his entering the week, but he’s played nearly flawlessly at left tackle during one on ones and during the team dills. Edoga played right tackle for the Trojans and played somewhere around 285-290 pounds, but weighed in at 303 which is a big deal for him. I think he could end up as a tackle or at either of the interior positions in a zone specific blocking scheme. Maryland’s defensive lineman Byron Cowart is another player who had some question marks heading into this week. Cowart is a former #1 overall recruit who started his career at Auburn before transferring to a junior college and then finishing his career at Maryland. Cowart is 6’3” and 297 pounds, but played defensive end at Maryland. Cowart is still a player who is learning the nuances of the position, but his positional versatility is appealing. Kansas State’s Dalton Risner and Boston College’s Zach Allen came to blows during a team session, and then immediately lined up on each other for 1 on 1s. Both of these players are brutes and the physicality in the trenches is not only welcomed, it’s encouraged. Memphis offensive weapon Tony Pollard is a guy I caught some glimpses of who I really think can carve out a niche for himself. He’s playing here as a running back, but played wide receiver for the Tigers. He also has an impressive history as a kick returner as well. South PracticeThe 49ers’ coaches finished the week’s practice with the afternoon session of practice on Thursday. Mississippi offensive lineman Javon Patterson had a nice showing on Thursday after a bit of a lackluster Tuesday practice. Patterson switched between guard and center during the practices, and while I don’t know if he’s ever a starter, his versatility will be valued. Texas A&M defensive lineman Kingsley Keke had another day similar to Tuesday, where he would look like a potential first rounder on one rep Womens Kevin King Jersey , and get stonewalled on the next few. In my opinion Keke is going to get over-drafted, but there is no doubt in my mind that at 6’3” 286, some defensive line coach will see someone he can “fix” the warts on. South Carolina’s Deebo Samuel has been dominant all week long, and he finished strong on Thursday. He’s been uncoverable all week, and reminds me a bit of younger Randall Cobb, with the stout build in the slot who thrive in run after the catch situations. Buffalo quarterback Tyree Jackson, a 6’7” 250 pound quarterback, has some issues, but man, he has a hose. Easily the strongest arm here in Mobile, his throws don’t always look the prettiest, but at times he makes very difficult throws look incredibly simple. His upside is tantalizing, but he’ll definitely benefit from sitting a year or two before being asked to take over. LSU tight end Foster Moreau has had a very nice week. Moreau was under utilized in the pass game at LSU (so is literally everyone else) but he showed some nice athleticism and is always very willing as a blocker. He was given the jersey number 18, which anyone familiar with LSU’s program knows that’s not an honor they take lightly. Moreau is someone to watch moving forward. One thing is clear: the Green Bay Packers’ coaches believe there is talent on this team, even if it hasn’t shown it this year and even if they aren’t around to help develop it. Several of the assistant coaches spoke to the media on Thursday and a few players in particular were called out by name.Specifically Jermaine Whitehead Jersey White , the coach calling out players in a positive light was Joe Whitt, the defensive pass game coordinator. He singled out a trio of young cornerbacks as being players to watch moving forward. Unfortunately, only one — Tony Brown — has been healthy all season long, but Whitt complimented him on his passion and tenacity as he has taken on a big role with key players sitting out late in the season.Meanwhile, the team’s top draft picks in each of the past two drafts have seemingly alternated playing time with injuries all year, robbing fans and coaches alike from seeing them together. While Kevin King’s issues seem more concerning long-term than Jaire Alexander’s, it sure would be nice to see the two healthy for a full season together to see what they can do on opposite sides of the field.The coaches themselves face an uncertain future, however. Whether they will remain in Green Bay is highly dependent on the desires of the next head coach, and there’s no guarantee that Whitt, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, or any of the other assistants will remain with the franchise next season. With that in mind, they are trying to enjoy their last week in Green Bay for this season, knowing it could be their last.We’ve got all that and more in today’s curds.Jaire Alexander and Kevin King can be 'a heck of a tandem' | Packers.comJoe Whitt doesn't know if his future lies in Green Bay, but he's excited about the possibilities of the two young Packers corners playing together. That didn't happen much at all in 2018, thanks to injuries to both players Womens David Bakhtiari Jersey , but hopefully 2019 will hold better luck for the two moving forward.Packers notes: Mike Pettine to 'respect process' of coaching search | Packersnews.comIt sounds like Pettine has no plans to formally apply for the head coaching job, which tracks with his previous comments about not wanting to be the head man again. Meanwhile, Whitt -- who may or may not be under contract for next season -- sounds like he does have his eye on a coordinator job if the opportunity arises.Packers offense will exit 2018 with big potential heading into 2019 | Packers WireThis breakdown of the talent returning for the Packers' offense is why I still feel strongly that this should be an exciting and desirable job opportunity for an offensive-minded coach.Davante Adams to catch his way to records if his knee cooperates - ESPNWhile Adams still expects to play, I would not be surprised if the team puts him out there for a couple of plays early to get the reception record, then shuts him down. The last thing the Packers need is one of their key players injuring his knee further in a meaningless game.2018 Pinstripe Bowl: Wisconsin rocks Miami in 35-3 win - Bucky's 5th QuarterCongratulations to the Badgers and our colleagues at B5Q on an excellent performance by Wisconsin on Thursday night in New York City!5 most fireable NFL coaches of Week 16: Todd Bowles out, Jim Harbaugh in? - SBNation.comAt least Mike McCarthy isn't on this list.

If Things Stay The Same Whitney Mercilus Jersey , Expect More Pain"The Houston football club has produced several seasons in a row with very similar results. A team that takes the field multiple times a year looking confused and unprepared, poor in-game coaching decisions, multiple key injuries, porous offensive line play and a secondary that gives up big plays like it’s cool. Whatever Bill O’Brien, Romeo Crennel and the rest of the coaching staff did to prepare the team for week one, two, three and seventeen clearly didn’t work. Showing up in New England to play Bill Belichick and Tom Brady that way is akin to forfeiting the game. Doing it in the Wild Card Round in your own house is begging to get fired. Deciding to run the ball up the gut on first and second downs more than any team in the league with a running back corps that features one guy who can get it done in Lamar Miller, one guy who could get it done if the offensive line was top ten and a mixture of guys who’ve never gotten it done is just poor foresight on the game planner/play caller... i.e. Bill O’Brien. The injury bug has decimated the Texans two straight seasons. While they made a move last off-season to address it by revamping their workout programs, it had mixed results. In the 2018 season http://www.thetexanslockerroom.com/authentic-martinas-rankin-jersey , Houston did see some rather miraculous improvements in injury recovery from Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watt, but losing Will Fuller V and having spotty contributions from KeKe Coutee, D’Onta Foreman and others gave mixed results when scoring one-and-done strength and condition coach Luke Richesson. When you look at the teams who made it to the divisional round, and those still alive to play in the Championship games, the solidness of their offensive lines is clear for all to see. The L.A. Rams quarterback Jared Goff was sacked 33 times all year versus Deshaun Watson’s 65 times. And the “Watson holds onto the ball too long” argument doesn’t hold water as Goff isn’t Kurt Warner’s quick release second coming by any stretch of the imagination. The Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes was sacked less than half the times Watson was (30) while Todd Gurley managed to rack up 1251 rushing yards to Lamar Miller’s 973. And Miller’s longest run was the epic 97 yarder while Gurley’s longest of the year was only 37. Talking about the issues with the cornerbacks has been an annual thing since Rick Smith let A.J. Bouye out of the building a few years ago. With father time catching Jonathan Joseph faster than Joseph can close on an opposing wide receiver, Kevin Johnson’s inability to show he was worth more than a 4th round pick and Aaron Colvin’s inability to stay on the field, Houston’s cornerback room is almost as bad as the offensive line group. Factor in the blind officiating that allows J.J. Watt to wear opposing offensive lineman as necklaces, Jadeveon Clowney to get tackled multiple times a game and its amazing Houston won as many games as they did in 2018. When it comes down to it, however Keke Coutee Jersey , every team deals with injuries, bad calls and blind luck that goes against them - well, maybe not the Patriots, but that’s a subject for another time. As Brian Gaine enters his first full offseason, with a solid chance to upgrade and retool the Houston Texans roster, there is definitely hope for the player component of this team. With just a handful of key new players, the Texans roster could rocket into the stratosphere of NFL talent. But that doesn’t address the lack of game prep, poor offensive scheming and atrociously predictable play calling. Last week, we ran a poll to see who you felt was to blame for Houston’s insulting exit from the playoffs. It’s not a surprise that 55% of the Battle Red faithful felt Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien (and to some extent Romeo Crennel) was to blame and should find himself in the unemployment line. With guys like Mike McCarthy still out there Kendall Lamm Jersey White , Cal McNair has options if he’s going to make a change. Chances are, that won’t happen as McNair is most likely waiting to see what O’Brien and Gaine can do with a full year together. But, that still leaves the option of hiring an offensive coordinator - which McNair should insist on after years of O’Brien proving he can’t get the job done. So, here’s today’s question: Who would you bring in as an offensive coordinator, if you were Cal McNair? Or, would you just clean house right now and try to get ahead of the closing window that is the Texans veteran core of top flight players? Give us your thoughts in the comments box.Hair of the Dog - Texans v. Traitors (Or: The One Where UT Is Too Exhausted To Think Of A Clever Subtitle) Good morning.By the time I finish writing this post, I will have been awake for about 48 hours straight due to a really, really stupidly early flight home from Athens and having never bothered to go to sleep the night before so as to pack up.Because of this, and the fact that I am currently hallucinating a couple of hedgehogs taking tea at a little hedgehog-sized table Derek Newton Jersey White , this will likely not be my finest performance in chronicling the ramblings and insights of the BRB braintrust.Hell, I even just dozed off in the middle of writing the previous sentence.I also had no idea what was happening during the game until about midway through the third quarter and was not able to watch at all, so there will be a lamentable lack of context for some of these comments.So with expectations, I hope, sufficiently lowered, here is this week’s “Hair of the Dog.”As always, in finest Hair of the Dog tradition, all swear words have been replaced with the word “kitten.”If they aren’t, well Womens Benardrick McKinney Jersey , I blame the hedgehogs.BFD(Ed.

With Baltimore and Pittsburgh both looking for playoff spots in Week 17 Youth Renell Wren Jersey , the NFL decided to flex both games to the late afternoon slot on Sunday. And, neither game disappointed the masses. Though Cleveland and Cincinnati were both previously eliminated from postseason contention, they had the opportunity to play spoiler to their hated division rivals. Well, both the Bengals and Browns took their games to the wire in contests that had major playoff implications. Bengals at SteelersPittsburgh hosted Cincinnati in what looked to be a blowout on paper. The Bengals were down many players, particularly on offense, so traveling to Heinz Field with nothing to play for but pride seemed to point to an ugly ending of the 2018 season. However, Cincinnati had a little more gas in the tank than most expected. The Bengals had a chance to win the game with under two minutes to play, only to fall to the Steelers for the second time in 2018 with a 16-13 loss.Jeff Driskel was just 12-of-24 for 95 passing yards, while Joe Mixon had his fourth 100-yard rushing performance of 2018. But it was the Bengals defense that stepped up in a big way against the vaunted Steelers offense. Shawn Williams had a pick-six against Ben Roethlisberger in the second quarter, while Nick Vigil had a whopping 17 tackles. Still White Renell Wren Jersey , JuJu Smith-Schuster became the third Steelers player to notch 110 or more receptions in a season, and the Pittsburgh defense sacked Driskel four times in their ugly win.In getting to 9-6-1 with the win over the Bengals, Pittsburgh had a brief glimmer of hope to get into the playoffs. They needed the Browns to upset the Ravens on their home turf in order to win another AFC North crown. That became clear just a few minutes after the end result at Heinz Field.This was also Marvin Lewis’ last game as the Bengals’ head coach, as he finishes his career with an 8-26 mark against Pittsburgh. Browns at RavensThrough a lot of drama this year, the Ravens just continue to find ways to get it done. Whether it was in a quarterback change in the middle of the season, or a massive amount of rumors about John Harbaugh, Baltimore tuned out the noise and got things done in a wild 26-24 win over Cleveland. Rookie Baker Mayfield threw three touchdowns to set a rookie record in the category with 27 scores in 2018, but also threw three big interceptions in the loss. Jarvis Landry, Breshad Perriman and Antonio Callaway all had the scoring grabs, but the Browns defense just couldn’t contain Lamar Jackson and the Ravens’ read-option offense. Jackson only threw for 179 yards Nick Vigil Jersey White , but rushed for 90 more and two scores. Kenneth Dixon and Gus Edwards combined for 24 carries 193 yards, while Justin Tucker was 4-of-4 on field goals in the victory. For the Browns, rumors have Gregg Williams being out of their coaching search, as the team hones in on names like Josh McDaniels, Mike McCarthy and others. Regardless, with Mayfield, Callaway, Landry, Nick Chubb and others, the future looks bright for Cleveland. Baltimore Womens Anthony Munoz Jersey , on the other hand, hosts the Chargers next weekend. The Ravens beat them in Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago, so this rematch provides a lot of intrigue. Updated AFC North standings:Baltimore Ravens: 10-6 (3-3 in division, 8-4 in conference)Pittsburgh Steelers: 9-6-1 (3-2-1 in division, 6-5-1 in conference)Cleveland Browns 7-8-1 (3-2-1 in division, 5-6-1 in conference)Cincinnati Bengals: 6-10 (1-5 in division, 4-8 in conference)Updated AFC Playoff Picture:Kansas City Chiefs: 12-4 (First in AFC West)New England Patriots: 11-5 (First AFC East)Houston Texans: 11-5 (First in AFC South)Baltimore Ravens: 10-6 (First in AFC North)Los Angeles Chargers: 12-4 (Second in AFC West, facing Ravens in Baltimore)Indianapolis Colts: 10-6 (Second in AFC South, facing Texans in Houston) If the Bengals want to attempt a BPA approach then there is a decent chance Ed Oliver should be their pick at 11"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBABreaking NewsKeep track of the 2019 Bengals draft脳NFL Draft Profile Video: Ed OliverNew,9commentsIf the Bengals want to attempt a BPA approach then there is a decent chance Ed Oliver should be their pick at 11EDTShareTweetShareShareNFL Draft Profile Video: Ed OliverEd Oliver 2019 Video Draft ProfileThe Bengals often preach a best player available strategy during the draft http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-ryan-glasgow-jersey , but that idea will be put to the test if Ed Oliver falls to the Bengals pick at 11. Ed Oliver Athletic Profile:Height: 6’ 2”Weight: 287 poundsVertical Jump: 36”Broad Jump: 120”Bench Press: 32 repsEd Oliver is the classic example of projection of a player and his role in the pros. Oliver went to a small school where he rarely had opportunities to play against NFL quality talent. He also was played what should be considered as out of position at Houston, often playing as a pure nose in their three-man front. Taking him from there and putting him in a position where he is playing next to Geno Atkins would be one of the most positive things you could do for him, as he could continue to work on his polish as a pass rusher studying Atkins. With Atkins getting up there in age, taking Oliver would be the exact kind of move that the Bengals could make to ensure that their pass rush can stay deadly up the interior. Most likely, he will be the best player available at pick 11 if he makes it that far. So the question will be, do the Bengals take the most talented player, or reach on someone at a position of more need like linebacker.To see the full breakdown of his game and his pro comparison check out the above Draft Profile Video.

Detroit Lions vs. New England Patriots: First half open thread The Detroit Lions have been given a gift from the football gods. Both the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings—fairly heavy favorites in Week 3—lost their games earlier on Sunday. Unfortunately Dwayne Washington Jersey White , the Cardinals couldn’t complete the trifecta, blowing a 14-point lead to the Chicago Bears in the late games.Either way, the Lions have a golden opportunity to completely change the narrative of the 2018 season in one night. A win over the Patriots, however improbable as it may seem, would put the Lions just a game away from first place in the NFC North Sam Martin Jersey , and a half game behind both the Packers and Vikings.But in order to pull of such an upset the Lions need to look a lot different than they have in the previous two weeks. In both games, the Lions fell behind by three scores, and only last week in San Francisco were they able to work their way back into the game. The defense has looked bad, the offense inconsistent. But Sunday night is a new day, and as we saw all day on Sunday Womens Jake Rudock Jersey , teams can look drastically different week-to-week. So join us as the Lions try to pull of the upset and notch their first win of the season. Last week, we learned that former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell was interested in returning to the NFL in 2019 after taking a year off. Well, apparently Caldwell has already scored his first head coaching interview and the 2018 season hasn’t even ended yet.According to Pro Football Talk, Caldwell has interviewed for the Green Bay Packers head coaching job. The Packers fired Mike McCarthy back at the beginning of December and have used offensive coordinator Joe Philbin as the interim head coach since—going 2-1 since making the move.Caldwell is the first reported interview for the Packers, though it has since been leaked that former Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has also interviewed for the position. Obviously at this point DeShawn Shead Jersey White , the Packers can only choose from college coaches and those who did not coach in 2018, as current NFL coaches are still in season. It’s worth noting that Caldwell also satisfies the Packers’ “Rooney Rule” requirements in their coaching search. Earlier this month, the NFL expanded the Rooney rule to not only require that teams interview a minority coach, but that interview must be with someone that is not currently within the organization. However, Caldwell is very much considered a real candidate for a head coaching job. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported last week that multiple teams are expected to ask Caldwell for an interview. In his time with the Detroit Lions Marvin Jones Jr Jersey White , Caldwell went 36-28, including back-to-back 9-7 seasons in his final two seasons with the team.

The Packers are landing one of the top EDGEs on the free agent market."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareSharePackers Free Agency 2019: OLB Za’Darius Smith will sign in Green Bay Cheap Jace Sternberger Jersey , per reportPatrick McDermott-USA TODAY SportsAfter staying mostly quiet on Monday as the free agency negotiation window opened, the Green Bay Packers made a huge splash early on Tuesday morning. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Green Bay is expected to sign outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith, formerly of the Baltimore Ravens.One early report from Jason La Canfora suggests that the contract could be worth over $16 million per year. Rapoport later announced details of the deal as being for four years and $66 million, an average of $16.5 million per year.Smith Jace Sternberger Jersey Womens , a fourth-round draft pick in 2015 out of Kentucky, had a big season for Baltimore in 2018. He recorded 8.5 sacks but landed an astonishing 25 quarterback hits along with a forced fumble and 10 tackles for loss. For his career, Smith has 18.5 sacks.This move is one that makes a great deal of sense. On Sunday night, Peter King reported that the Packers had once tried to trade for Smith in the past. In addition, Milt Hendrickson — a key Ravens scout for the past decade — jumped over to the Packers’ front office to work for general manager Brian Gutekunst.

With the Green Bay Packers officially eliminated from playoff contention Womens Mike Daniels Jersey , the offseason starts now despite two games remaining on the schedule.Priority one for the Packers will be finding a new head coach. The widely held assumption is that the team is in the market for an offensive-minded head coach to help Aaron Rodgers and company get out of the doldrums.If this is indeed the path Green Bay goes down, the next coach should almost immediately offer to retain defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.Despite suffering a ton of injuries including the two best defensive lineman in Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark, Pettine’s unit has remained respectable despite the team’s poor record. The fact Pettine has kept the defense playing well despite all the adversity speaks volumes about his coaching acumen and how much players enjoy playing for him.Could you see the same situation unfolding under Dom Capers’ leadership? Highly doubtful.There’s more on why keeping Pettine would be the smart move plus a Packers legend visits with two current stars of his alma mater in today’s cheese curds.Mike Pettine making strong case to keep leading Packers’ defense—PackersNews.comGo figure that the Packers finally fix the defense and then the offense falls apart.Success on the road remains elusive for Packers—Packers.comThat the Packers are 0-7 on the road is perhaps the most shocking statistic in a lost season.Dissecting what went wrong with Packers QB Aaron Rodgers in 2018—Packers WireRodgers hasn’t played his best this season and while he hasn’t been truly awful Womens Jake Ryan Jersey , the next head coach will face a challenge in getting Rodgers to look like Rodgers again.Packers legend Bart Starr meets with Alabama players—WBAY-TVStarr visited his alma mater and their two star quarterbacks and gave them both a signed a jersey. The best part about this is how much healthier Starr looks compared to recent yearsParrot uses owner’s Alexa to order ice cream, raisins—UPIBe careful what you say to your birds or you could be a Prime candidate for a surprise on your doorstep. Thursday’s bombshell factory from Tyler Dunne of BleacherReport.com including an ominous characterization of a phone call between Packers CEO Mark Murphy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Per Dunne, Murphy told Rodgers “don’t be the problem” after informing Rodgers that a new coach had been hired without his input.The Packers have yet to address any aspect of Dunne’s story. However Kenny Clark Jersey , a team source tells PFT that the Packers specifically dispute the claim that Murphy told Rodgers “don’t be the problem” and generally dispute the notion that the call was anything other than positive.This doesn’t mean the Packers agree with the rest of the report; they’re opting as an organization to focus on the future. (It also doesn’t mean Dunne’s report regarding the phone call isn’t accurate. The news here is only that, privately, the Packers do not agree with the manner in which it was described.)It’s believed that Rodgers will speak to reporters next week Reggie White Jersey White , in connection with the launch of the offseason workout program. It’s expected that Rodgers will echo publicly what the Packers believe privately.

This afternoon Cordy Glenn Jersey White , the Bengals announced Tyler Boyd (knee), Jordan Evans (ankle) and Dre Kirkpatrick (shoulder) would be placed on injured reserve. But they weren’t the only players declared out for Sunday’s season finale against the Steelers.Vontaze Burfict (concussion) and Tony McRae (hamstring) will not play on Sunday after both players missed all week of practice. Burfict suiting would’ve been a major surprise considering his concussion was the second one he suffered in the last month. Neither player has been placed on injured reserve as of yet.Darqueze Dennard (wrist), Christian Ringo (knee) and Shawn Williams (pectoral) will all be playing in Pittsburgh after they practiced in full this week with no setbacks. Dennard will likely take Kirkpatrick’s spot as one of the boundary cornerbacks while rookie Darius Phillips will replace Dennard’s spot in the slot.Ringo has played 77 snaps since Week 15 and should continue to operate as the backup to Geno Atkins at 3-technique. Williams has not missed a game this season despite suffering numerous injuries throughout multiple games, and he will finish the year with 16 starts for the first time in his career.The Steelers have listed RB James Conner (ankle) S Sean Davis (quad) and WR Antonio Brown (coach’s decision/knee) as questionable, along with LB Vince Williams (toe) as doubtful. Conner participated in every practice this week, so it’s looking like he’ll play. Davis managed to practice today after being sidelined on Wednesday and Thursday. Williams may as well have been declared out after not practicing all week.Brown also failed to practice all week after getting a veteran’s day off on Wednesday, and will undergo more tests this weekend to determine if he can play. A player of Brown’s caliber does not need many practice reps anyways, so if the team clears him, he’ll probably play. If not, the Steelers offense will miss their best player. As long as Mike Tomlin is standing on the Pittsburgh sideline http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-tyler-eifert-jersey , watching Ben Roethlisberger pass to Antonio Brown or give the ball to Le'Veon Bell, the Steelers will be favored to win the AFC North.It makes no difference that Randy Fichtner is the new offensive coordinator, or that Roethlisberger turned 36 in March.The Steelers are going to score points, and they're going to play their best against division rivals in big games.Baltimore knows this all too well. Two years ago, Bell rushed for 122 yards and Roethlisberger connected with Brown for a last-minute touchdown in a 31-27 victory that clinched the AFC North title.Last December, Roethlisberger threw for 506 yards and two TDs, Bell scored twice and the Steelers beat the Ravens 39-38.Baltimore hopes to turn things around this year, but if the Ravens are to break a run of three straight years without a playoff appearance, it will likely be as a wild card.There are, by the way Womens C.J. Uzomah Jersey , two other teams in the division. Cincinnati and Cleveland deserve mention only because one will likely finish in third place and the other will occupy the cellar.In Cincinnati, coach Marvin Lewis got a two-year extension despite his NFL-record 0-7 mark in the playoffs. After two straight losing seasons, he's getting a 16th chance to finally get it right.Cleveland is coming off an 0-16 embarrassment and can only hope to be respectable. Since the creation of the current AFC North in 2002, the Browns are the only team never to finish in first place.Some things to know about the AFC North:FOR WHOM THE BELL TOILS: Pittsburgh and its "Killer Bs" 鈥?Roethlisberger, Brown and Bell 鈥?have reached the playoffs four straight years. Yet all those trips to January have turned into just three postseason wins and no trips to the Super Bowl.While the rejuvenated Roethlisberger believes he can play until he nears 40, this may be his last legitimate shot to win a third championship. Bell is likely in his final year in black-and-gold after being unable to come to terms with the club on a new long-term deal.Bell is one of the most versatile backs in the league and not easily replaceable. He won't lack for motivation. He believes he's a unique talent and wants the paycheck to prove it.Pittsburgh's best chance to return to the Super Bowl will rely heavily on having Bell at the top of his game and will certainly take the tradeoff of seeing Bell elsewhere in 2019 if it means hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in February.FAREWELL TOUR: Ozzie Newsome is the only general manager the Ravens have ever had, running the show in Baltimore since the team arrived from Cleveland before the 1996 season.Newsome will be stepping aside after this season, to be replaced by current assistant GM Eric DeCosta, who in 2019 will finally get the job he wanted after spurning offers from several other clubs.The Ravens have won two Super Bowls under Newsome, who in his final season has assembled a team that appears better than last year's model.Having provided quarterback Joe Flacco with a new receiving group Carl Lawson Jersey White , Newsome addressed Baltimore's most glaring weakness in 2017.BENGALS ON THE LINE: Cincinnati's offense finished last in the league in yards last season, the worst showing in franchise history. The focus of their offseason was overhauling the line, which failed to protect Andy Dalton or open holes in the running game.The Bengals fired line coach Paul Alexander, traded with Buffalo for left tackle Cordy Glenn, signed right tackle Bobby Hart and drafted center Billy Price in the first round from Ohio State. Despite all that, the right side of the line struggled against the Cowboys in the second preseason game, renewing concerns that problems remain.GOTTA BE BETTER, CAN'T GET WORSE: Cleveland coach Hue Jackson is 1-31 in two seasons with Cleveland, but Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam still believe they hired the right coach in 2016. Time will tell, but the pressure is on Jackson from the get-go to win or there could be more changes in a team that has known mostly upheaval for 20 years.The Browns drafted quarterback Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick Womens Ryan Glasgow Jersey , but the Heisman Trophy winner will begin the year as a backup to Tyrod Taylor, who helped Buffalo snap a 17-year postseason drought last season.Predicted order of finish: Steelers, Ravens, Bengals, Browns.AP Sports Writers Joe Kay, Tom Withers and Will Graves contributed.

Now that three years have passed Isaac Nauta Jersey Mens , let’s look at Bob Quinn’s first draft class."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions NotesDetroit Lions AnalysisDetroit Lions TransactionsDetroit Lions Game RecapsBreaking NewsIntroducing the 2019 Detroit Lions Draft Class! 脳NFL DraftNFL Open ThreadsWednesday open thread: What grade do you give the Lions 2016 NFL Draft?New,134commentsNow that three years have passed, let’s look at Bob Quinn’s first draft class. EDTShareTweetShareShareWednesday open thread: What grade do you give the Lions 2016 NFL Draft?Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY SportsWhen looking at the NFL Draft, everyone wants immediate gratification. Teams are hoping to get contributions out of the players from Day 1, and fans want to know immediately how well their team did on draft day.But that’s dangerous thinking. If a general manager goes into a draft hoping only to fill immediate needs with immediate starters, they are going to find themselves in a load of trouble in the near future. And fans may gobble up draft grades just hours after the picks are made, but that analysis is as close to meaningless as you can get in this business. That’s why many people like to wait at least three years before judging a draft class. Justin Rogers of The Detroit News did just that this week, giving out individual grades for each pick in the Detroit Lions’ 2016 NFL Draft class. You can view his grades here, but his overall grade for the class was a solid B+.Before we give grades of our own, here’s a reminder of the Detroit Lions’ draft haul that year:Round 1, Pick 16: OT Taylor DeckerRound 2, Pick 15: DT A’Shawn RobinsonRound 3, Pick 33: C Graham GlasgowRound 4 Youth Isaac Nauta Jersey , Pick 13: S Miles KillebrewRound 5, Pick 12: G/T Joe Dahl Round 5, Pick 32: LB Antwione WilliamsRound 6, Pick 16: QB Jake RudockRound 6, Pick 27: DE Anthony ZettelRound 6, Pick 35: LS Jimmy LandesRound 7, Pick 15: RB Dwayne WashingtonToday’s Question of the Day is:What grade do you give the Lions’ 2016 NFL Draft class?My answer: I’m not going to be quite as forgiving as Rogers. While I agree with Justin that the Lions did a heck of a job with their first three picks, the failure of the next seven cannot be ignored.I’m not going to ding general manager Bob Quinn for Anthony Zettel. For where he was picked, the Lions actually got a really good return on that investment, and it’s not on Quinn that Zettel didn’t fit into the team’s plans after a coaching change.However, Miles Killebrew, Joe Dahl, Antwione Williams Austin Bryant Detroit Lions Jersey , Jake Rudock, Jimmy Landes and Dwayne Washington have all either been complete non-factors or have really struggled in their limited playing time. Individually, it doesn’t hurt missing on a few Day 3 picks. Collectively, missing on nearly all of them is bad. Detroit entered this draft with 10 picks and left with 10 picks. Having all of that Day 3 ammo provided a great opportunity to potentially trade up and get an earlier-round prospect that Quinn may have really liked. Instead, he chose to stand pat and collect guys that would amount to training camp and practice squad fodder. That’s not acceptable when you have so much Day 3 draft capital. All that being said, this was Quinn’s first draft and he was likely overwhelmed dealing with entirely new resources from the ones he had grown accustomed to in New England. It likely takes a couple years to get settled from a general manager standpoint, especially for a first-time GM. Quinn did well enough to get three potential long-term starters with Detroit’s first three picks, and that’s good enough for me to give him a B-. Your turn.

Either Terry McLaurin or Parris Campbell would fit the Packers nicely in round two or three."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareSharePackers NFL Draft 2019: Two Ohio State receivers project as day-two targetsGary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY SportsUnder Ted Thompson Jaire Alexander Jersey , the Green Bay Packers loved drafting wide receivers on day two of the NFL Draft. Thompson hit on these players with regularity, too; Greg Jennings, James Jones, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams were all second- or third-round draft picks who went on to have long, productive careers with the Packers. Adams is now unquestionably one of the NFL’s ten best wide receivers, with a legitimate argument to be made for him as a top-five player at the position.In 2018, Brian Gutekunst preferred to wait until the later rounds of his first draft to address the position, drafting three players between rounds four and six. However, all were size-speed players who present matchup problems for defenses.This spring Josh Jackson Jersey , however, the Packers may go back to the day-two well, with numerous intriguing players projecting to go in the second or third rounds. Interestingly, two players who lined up together in Columbus should be under consideration for Gutekunst and company, as both project as good fits in Green Bay.Parris Campbell and Terry McLaurin will be connected throughout this draft process. The two players arrived at Ohio State one year apart, but a redshirt for Campbell resulted in both earning their first significant playing time as sophomores in 2016. By the 2018 season, each was a key cog in the Buckeyes’ offensive attack, which saw quarterback Dwayne Haskins set conference records with his arm.Last fall, Campbell was the offense’s Swiss Army Knife. Lining up in the slot, the backfield, and practically everywhere else Oren Burks Jersey , the goal was simple: get the ball in his hands and let him make something happen. Campbell’s elite speed (4.31 seconds in the 40 at the Combine) and change-of-direction ability (position-best 4.03 in the short shuttle) led to a highly productive season. Campbell’s 90 receptions went for over 1,000 yards, as he averaged 11.8 yards per catch despite a high number of those “receptions” essentially coming on jet sweeps. Campbell also brings return ability to the NFL, having served as Ohio State’s primary kickoff returner in 2016 and pitching in occasionally in 2017. McLaurin, on the other hand, rotated heavily with a host of talented receivers, many of whom will be future NFL Draft picks. However, his 35 receptions displayed big-play ability, as he averaged 20 yards per catch on those plays. Like Campbell, McLaurin contributed on special teams as well, but more so on coverage teams rather than with the ball in his hands.Check out this compilation of McLaurin’s plays as a punt gunner:For the Packers J’Mon Moore Jersey , who very much have an athletic “type” for their receivers since Thompson took over as GM, both players check all the boxes. They’re both just over six feet tall, each weighs between 205 and 210 pounds, and their speed and agility times are far better than the team’s typical requirements. Take a look:Parris Campbell: 5-foot-11 7/8, 205 pounds, 4.31 forty, 4.03 short shuttle (no 3-cone)Terry McLaurin: 6-foot-0 1/8, 208 pounds, 4.35 forty, 4.15 short shuttle, 7.01 3-coneThe differences between the two will make one or the other more appealing targets to different teams Marquez Valdes-Scantling Jersey , based on what said teams are looking for. Campbell is ultimately the more dynamic athlete, but he probably needs his offensive scheme to help him be productive. McLaurin is a more effective route-runner and can create space on his own. In short, Campbell is the better player after the catch, while McLaurin is better before it.Still, either one looks to be a solid fit for the Packers, who appear to be looking for a slot receiver this spring after Randall Cobb’s departure. Although Equanimeous St. Brown provided some nice reps on the inside and Jimmy Graham projects to get significant snaps split out in the slot as well, the team could use one of these smaller (but not too small) receivers to help attack the middle of the field. Don’t be surprised if one or the other trades in his scarlet and gray for green and gold on April 26th. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has appeared on the injury report in every week since Week One due to a knee injury. For Week 16, the Packers have disclosed another injury.Rodgers also has a groin injury. Although he fully participated in practice on Wednesday, perhaps the injury provides the basis for coach Joe Philbin’s hesitation to declare that Rodgers will start on Sunday against the Jets.Rodgers has said he’ll play, but a groin injury can go in multiple different ways. On multiple past occasions for NFL players, a groin injury became hernia surgery.It’s too early to worry about that outcome for Rodgers. But if there’s any concern that this is more than a muscle pull JK Scott Jersey , it’s all the more reason to shut Rodgers down for the rest of the season.Not practicing on Wednesday for the Packers were defensive tackle聽Kenny Clark (elbow), receiver Randall Cobb (concussion), tight end Jimmy Graham (knee,聽thumb), guard Lucas Patrick (illness), cornerback Will Redmond (shoulder), punter J.K. Scott (illness), and tackle Jason Spriggs (concussion). Limited were tackle聽Bryan Bulaga (knee), receiver Jake Kumerow (hand), running back Jamaal Williams (toe).

Deshaun Watson‘s mother spent years encouraging him to chase his dreams.Now that Watson has achieved one of his biggest goals of reaching the NFL Jordan Akins Jersey , the Houston Texans quarterback is giving back to her by renovating the home he grew up in.“She is my rock, my hero,” Watson said. “She always was there giving 100 percent each and every day to try to be the best she can be to help her kids be successful.”It’s been well-documented that the Watson family received a home from Habitat For Humanity when Deshaun was 11 years old in Gainesville, Georgia. His mother still lives in that house, but now that he’s receiving NFL paychecks he decided it was time to spruce it up.His mother is a survivor of throat cancer and watching her fight through the disease made him even more determined to do something special for her.“She deserves it,” Deshaun said. “It’s been a solid home for us for … over 12 years now. (But) living room, kitchen and dining area, those areas need a little touch up. Everything she went through, this is really the smallest thing I can do for her.”Watson chronicled the spiffy makeover of his mother’s living room, dining room and kitchen on an online show called “My Houzz,”聽which can be seen here聽, and used the renovation website houzz.com to plan and carry out the project.Watson worked with a contracting team he found on the website, but he selected everything for the renovation. He picked the perfect lights, the color scheme, artwork for the wall, the right bar stools and kitchen cabinet, among dozens of other additions. Watson was thrilled to learn he could add a fireplace Tashaun Gipson Jersey White , something his mother had long wanted.He was pleased when told there’d be no need to build a chimney because it was an electric fireplace that starts with the flip of a switch.The 23-year-old Clemson graduate got a look at the completed project before unveiling it to his mother, and he loved how everything turned out. When his mother arrived, he greeted her outside and held her hand as she closed her eyes before he led her into the fabulous upgraded space. When she opened her eyes and gazed around the room, a huge smile spread across her face. Her son’s smile was just as broad.He was right about the fireplace, too. It was one of the first things Deann commented on.“I love my fireplace,” she said. “I love it.”She walked around her renovated home with wide eyes, taking in all the beautiful changes. She was also excited to see that her microwave, which formerly took up counter space, was now built into one of the cabinets.“I never thought it would be like this,” she said. “It’s beautiful.”Watson enjoyed the challenge of leading this project, but the best moment came when he saw the joy the gift brought his mom.“I could just see it in her eyes,” Watson said. “She was very moved. Everything that she saw, she loved it. Being a son and being able to take care of your momma and help her out felt good.” The playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts confirmed everyone’s fear that the Texans were incapable of beating an elite team. The 2018 Texans were a middle school bully that got away with picking on smaller, feebler kids. Once they got to the NFL Playoffs, it was like they graduated to high school and received the ultimate wake up call. The Texans had the easiest schedule in the league last season and took full advantage of it beating up on the Jets, Bills, Broncos Christian Covington Jersey , Redskins, and Dolphins. In their nine-game win streak, the twobest offenses they faced were the Colts and Cowboys; although both won a Wild Card game, they are far from the most potent offenses in the league, especially when they faced the Texans. Before we deconstruct the Texans’ secondary, let’s look at who all is on the Texans’ depth chart before free agency begins. In parenthesis is the number of years left on the player’s contract.CB Shareece Wright (FA), Aaron Colvin (3), Deante Burton (1), Kayvon Webster (FA)CB Johnathan Joseph (1), Johnson Bademosi (1), Kayvon Webster (FA)CB/S Kareem Jackson (FA)SS Justin Reid (3), Andre Hal (2)FS Tyrann Mathieu (FA), A.J. Moore (2), A. J. Hendy (2)Kareem Jackson was the highest paid player on the team last season who’ll be a free agent this offseason. He may demand the largest contract (among Texans’ defensive backs) in the market. At the age of 31, Jackson arguably had his best season last year when playing the nickel-safety position. But due to injuries creating a lack of depth at corner, Jackson was forced to revert back to playing on the outside. Jackson was named as a reserve for the Pro Bowl and finished the 2018 season with 87 tackles, one sack Womens Tyler Ervin Jersey , and two interceptions. Since he was by far the Texans’ best secondary player last year, it’s hard to imagine the Texans not bringing back Jackson in a similar role. If the Texans cannot lock up the veteran defensive back before free agency begins, he will be tough to keep around; he could easily leave Houston in search of a defense that can best use his talents and/or are willing to pay him the big bucks on what will likely be the last big deal of his NFL career.Kevin Johnson had his fifth-year option exercised that will keep him in Houston through 2019 if the Texans want that to happen.K-Jo was brought into the organization to be the next franchise cornerback, but he was literally knocked out of the season after taking a nasty hit against the Patriots in Week 1. This was his second concussion in less than a month and forced the Texans to shut down the former first-round pick for the rest of the season. For Johnson’s own health and the sanity of the Texans, both parties should move on from this relationship. A foot injury in 2016 slowed him down. The MCL sprain he suffered after that may make it difficult for him to drive on the ball. The concussions definitely make it difficult to rely on him suiting up and contributing long term. Nevertheless, since the Texans already lack depth at the corner position, the most likely scenario is that Johnson enters the 2019 season on the Texans’ roster and in a position to be a starter. Still, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Brian Gaine cuts ties with the injury-prone corner.Speaking of Gaine, the new general manager performed well in his first year in the position. However, the signing of cornerback Aaron Colvin to a four-year contract was by far the worst misstep of last offseason. Playing the nickel corner position in Jacksonville was a pretty sweet deal for Colvin; A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey handled the opponents’ best receivers, allowing Colvin to frequently play against average talent. Colvin asked for a bigger role when he joined the Texans, but he was clearly not up to the task. He did suffer an ankle injury midway through the season, but even when healthy the Texans had seen enough from Colvin. In the biggest game of the season, the Wild Card game against the Colts, Colvin was a healthy scratch.It’s not exactly an endorsement of Colvin’s long-term fit in Houston that the coaching staff chose to go with another player like Shareece Wright instead of a high-dollar free agent acquisition.If you are like me and are ready to get rid of Colvin, you’re in luck. Just not yet.Colvin’s contract has an out in 2020 that the Texans should pursue if Colvin doesn’t improve in 2019. After next season, the Texans could liberate themselves of Colvin with just a $2 million dead cap hit.Next on the list are Shareece Wright and Kayvon Webster. Wright was signed in the wake of the Kevin Johnson concussion injury and played significant snaps this season. If you are a fan of the Texans and want to blame someone for the long passes the Texans gave up this season Womens Shane Lechler Jersey , look no further than Wright. At times, he was the best man-coverage corner the Texans had on their roster. Other times, he looked as though he was playing with lead cleats, especially if a receiver put any sort of double-move on him. Though he provided depth, Wright erred on too many plays to be kept as a backup corner. Webster was also brought in after Kevin Johnson’s injury and was working to recover from an Achilles injury that ended his 2017 season when the Texans signed him. Well, Webster’s 2018 season only lasted two snaps as he tore his quad against the Cowboys and was placed on Injured Reserve again. Two serious injuries in consecutive seasons give the Texans no reason to keep Webster on as a backup corner. Free agent Tyrann Mathieu, who many fell in love with the second he announced he would be joining the Texans, had an up-and-down season (along with the rest of the secondary). Quickness and size appear to be too much for him at times, but he would absolutely set opposing players ablaze with devastating hits. Mathieu can play all over the field and fits into Romeo Crennel’s defensive system. Will Mathieu return to the Texans next season? He turns 27 in May, so the Honey Badger definitely has some years left in the league. In terms of continuity and leadership, the Texans should keep Mathieu and pay him well; other teams will be eager to bring him into the fold if he doesn’t stay in Houston.The last player to cover is 34 year old corner Johnathan Joseph. He has one year left on his contract, but does he have one more year left in the tank? T.Y. Hilton and other speedy receivers had field days against him. The off-coverage he must play to compensate for his lack of speed down the field allows for receivers to have a free release. Most likely, Joseph will be back for another season since the team is so thin at the corner position. The only two arguments for not flushing the toilet on the Texans’ entire secondary are depth and salary cap hits. The Texans do have a significant depth problem at the position that may take multiple offseasons to solve. Fortunately, they also have significant salary cap room to use, though much of that may go to keeping Jadeveon Clowney and re-signing Kareem Jackson and/or Tyrann Mathieu. Wiping the plate clean of this mediocre secondary sounds nice, but finding immediate and effective alternatives without losing excessive salary cap room will be a tall task for Brian Gaine this offseason.

The Bengals end their draft with an addition at cornerback."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBABengals select Jordan Brown with the 223rd selectionNew Clint Boling Jersey White ,42commentsThe Bengals end their draft with an addition at cornerback. EDTShareTweetShareShareBengals select Jordan Brown with the 223rd selectionChuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsThe Bengals use their final draft pick in the 2019 NFL draft to select cornerback Jordan Brown out of South Dakota St.With Darqueze Dennard on a one-year deal, and the rest of the young cornerbacks on the roster being hold overs from the last coaching staff. It makes sense that the Bengals would add some possible depth at that position. As with most Round 7 players, special teams will be his best chance at making this team and sticking around.Brown has prototypical height and speed for a cornerback in today’s NFL. He was a former-wide receiver, so his ball skills are better than the typical defensive back. However Preston Brown Jersey White , despit his size he still struggles in the run and in jump ball situations. He really just needs to fine tune some technical aspects of his game so he doesn’t get out of position when the ball is in the air. Also someone needs to light a fire under him so he gets more aggressive in general.The Bengals used the draft to address their biggest needs at linebacker and offensive line. They also added two running backs to help complete their stable of backs. Overall the Bengals didn’t leave the 2019 draft with very many holes in their roster. We will have to see who they bring in as undrafted free agents at this point to address their remaining roster spots.Bengals’ remaining top draft needs:DE, WR2019 Bengals Draft PicksRoundPick NumberRoundPick NumberDay 3 NFL Draft schedule: 12 p.m. ET, Saturday, April 27Here’s a link to the full seven-round NFL Draft order and live draft tracker! McRae quietly had a solid 2018 season as he looks for a bigger role in 2019."The Cincinnati Bengals have re-signed cornerback Tony McRae to a one-year deal.McRae Womens Carlos Dunlap Jersey , a third-year player in 2019, originally joined the Bengals as an undrafted free agent in 2016. He has played in 16 career games for the Bengals, with one start, and has five tackles Womens William Jackson Jersey , a pass defensed and eight special teams tackles. He played in a career-high 12 games this past season. McRae also spent time with the Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills in 2017 before returning to Cincinnati later in the season. He signed the exclusive rights tender the Bengals extended to him on March 8.While the Bengals are deep at cornerback, keeping Mcrae was always going to be a wise move. He’s been a valuable backup and special teams player. He may not see many defensive snaps with Darqueze Dennard, William Jackson, Dre Kirkpatrick and B.W. Webb on the roster http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-billy-price-jersey , but he should earn a spot on the 53-man roster.

On Wednesday evening, the team announced that long snapper Don Muhlbach will be headed to the All-Star event in Orlando, Florida. This will be the second time Muhlbach has made the Pro Bowl, the previous time being after the 2012 season. The reason Muhlbach wasn’t originally named to the Pro Bowl is simple: Pro Bowl long snappers are decided by the coaches of each All-Star team. The Chargers coaching staff, who will be in charge of the AFC, chose Broncos long snapper Casey Kreiter as their long snapper on Wednesday.The NFC team will be coached by the Dallas Cowboys’ staff. As pointed out by Justin Rogers of the Detroit News Austin Bryant Jersey 2019 , there are a few coaches on that staff that are more than familiar with Muhlbach: Muhlbach will join cornerback Darius Slay as the two representatives from the Lions. Defensive back Quandre Diggs was named an alternate for the game, but at this point, he has not been named to the All-Star game. The Rams and Saints didn’t have any defensive backs named to the Pro Bowl, so Diggs won’t jump a spot because of a Super Bowl replacement.
