The Bengals need a tackle Jordan Willis Jersey White , and Dillard is one of the best in this draft."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBANFL DraftBengals held workout with Andre DillardNew,54commentsThe Bengals need a tackle, and Dillard is one of the best in this draft. EDTShareTweetShareShareBengals held workout with Andre DillardJames Snook-USA TODAY SportsAs the NFL Draft is less than two weeks away, offensive tackle remains one of, if not the biggest need for the Bengals.You wouldn’t think it seeing how Cincinnati is paying over $15 million to Cordy Glenn and Bobby Hart in each of the next two seasons. But everyone knows they’re one of the worst starting tackle tandems in football, so if the Bengals believe there’s a franchise tackle on the board at No. 11, that may be the best pick to make for the future of this franchise.Turns out, the Bengals are looking into Washington State offensive tackle Andre Dillard, who worked out with the team. Dillard is an intriguing prospect Jake Fisher Jersey , as he played in a pass-heavy Cougars offense that ranked dead last in rushing attempts last season. He also played in quick-pass offense that didn’t require him to take deep dropbacks like he’d do a lot more in the NFL. Still, Dillard was consistently a great tackle that did what was asked of him and helped lock down the left side. At worst, he’d be an upgrade over Bobby Hart on the right side, then could attempt to man the left side when Glenn’s contract runs out in two years. Dillard is a promising prospect, but the 11th pick is probably too high for him. A lot of mock drafts have him going in the 20s. Perhaps he’ll be someone the Bengals take a hard look at if they wind up trading down in Round 1. Hines Ward was Tyler Boyd's favorite Steelers player while he grew up in Clairton, Pennsylvania. He loved how No. 86 made the tough catches in the biggest games and helped Pittsburgh win two Super Bowls during his 14 seasons."He was my guy," the Bengals receiver said. "Everything about him was good. He was quick, aggressive, he was smart Womens Andrew Billings Jersey , just a guy that everyone looked up to in the Pittsburgh area."Boyd got to know the Steelers when he went to Pitt, which shares Heinz Field with the Steelers. Instead of being drafted by them in 2016, he wound up going to the rival Cincinnati Bengals, who were looking for a slot receiver to complement A.J. Green.Boyd immediately redirected his goal toward beating his beloved black-and-gold team. So far, he's 0-for-4.The Bengals (4-1) have dropped six straight to the Steelers (2-2-1), a streak that's the talk of the town as Pittsburgh arrives for a game Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. Boyd has played in three of the games. All three times, he has walked off the field watching thousands of Steelers fans twirl their Terrible Towels — a scene he once enjoyed."I haven't beaten them once, so that would mean everything to me," Boyd said. "Just with all my friends and family and fans coming to watch Womens John Miller Jersey , I can start bragging a little and talk a little noise and stuff."So far, there's been little to talk about.Boyd had his best game against the Steelers as a rookie. He caught six passes for 78 yards in the second game of the season, a 24-16 loss in his return to Heinz Field. He also had a decisive fumble. He caught a pass at the Pittsburgh 33-yard line and was stripped by James Harrison. Pittsburgh recovered with 1:50 left, ending the Bengals' comeback attempt.Boyd had two catches for 13 yards in the rematch at Paul Brown Stadium, a 24-20 Steelers win .Last year, Boyd suffered a knee injury and missed a 29-14 loss at Pittsburgh . He had two catches for 15 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Steelers at Paul Brown Stadium. Thousands of Steelers fans twirled their towels as Pittsburgh ran off the field after Chris Boswell kicked a 38-yard field goal on the final play.The scene was familiar to Boyd, who attended a handful of Steelers games as a youth."They were all loud and crazy, so I'm expecting that," Boyd said. "But a lot of games get like that at some point in the game. I think we'll do a better job of keeping them quiet this game."The Bengals are counting on significant contributions from Boyd Trey Hopkins Jersey , who is having his best season. He leads the team with 30 catches — Green is second with 26.Boyd knows many of the Steelers from his playing days at Pitt, when they used the same stadium."When we were at practice, me and James (Conner) always talked to (Mike) Tomlin and Le'Veon (Bell) and AB (Antonio Brown)," Boyd said. "I would ask AB how he would work a route in certain coverage, just little things like that."I had a good relationship with those guys when I was at Pitt. It's fun to play against them now."NOTES: Running back Giovani Bernard was ruled out Friday with a knee injury, the second game in a row he'll miss. ... Tight end Tyler Kroft also is out with a foot injury. ... Center Billy Price will miss his fourth game with a partially torn ligament in his right foot. ... Cornerback William Jackson (knee), receiver John Ross (groin) and offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi (wrist) are listed as questionable.

Detroit needs an elite defensive end Ricky Jean Francois Jersey , but do they already have one?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions NotesDetroit Lions AnalysisDetroit Lions TransactionsDetroit Lions Game RecapsBreaking NewsIntroducing the 2019 Detroit Lions Draft Class! 脳Detroit Lions NotesWednesday open thread: How much would you pay to retain Ezekiel Ansah?New,80commentsDetroit needs an elite defensive end, but do they already have one?ESTShareTweetShareShareWednesday open thread: How much would you pay to retain Ezekiel Ansah?David Kohl-USA TODAY SportsIt is no secret that the Detroit Lions will be looking for a top end edge defender this offseason. The New England Patriots Trey Flowers has been a popular name on the lips of Detroit fans for months and Florida’s Jachai Polite has been a popular pick up for the Lions in mock drafts. The topic even dominated the most recent edition of the PODcast.While General Manger Bob Quinn probably plans to look anywhere to find an elusive pass rushing threat, the answer may be already wearing the Honolulu blue. Ezekiel Ansah missed much of the 2018 season with a shoulder injury, but when he was around late in the season he looked great. The defensive end played on the franchise tag last season and there is no chance Detroit uses it again on him. This means that he is set to hit the open market for the first time in his NFL career. While it is expected that he will have a few suitors, it is also possible that his injury history keeps some teams away - lowering his price in the process.If the price gets low enough then we may see Detroit end up reentering the market for their former 1st round selection. How much would you be willing to spend to retain Ansah?A cheap, incentive-laden deal around $4-5 million a year? A mid tier deal around the $10 million mark per year? The market price for an elite pass rusher of around $20 million a year? Somewhere in between?While it is unlikely that Ansah returns, how much would you be willing to hand to Ansah to retain his services?

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn’t happy with the team’s offensive performance in Sunday’s 22-0 win over the Bills.Rodgers called the unit’s effort “not acceptable” and made references to areas where the game plan put together by the coaching staff failed to put the Packers in the best possible position to succeed. Rodgers said questions for how that process works aren’t for him and that he tells the coaches what calls he likes after they put the plan together.Those comments led some to wonder about whether there was friction between Rodgers and head coach Mike McCarthy and it led to questions for McCarthy on Monday about their relationship.鈥淚 have good relationships Nick Perry Jersey , proper relationships, with all of our players,鈥?McCarthy said Bryan Bulaga Jersey , via Ryan Wood of PackersNews.com. “Aaron and I, we have gone through a lot of years together. So I feel good about our relationship. …聽Aaron’s given a lot of responsibility, and rightfully so. He’s earned that Mason Crosby Jersey , at the line of scrimmage and during the preparation process. That’ll continue as it’s been for quite some time.”McCarthy said he agreed with Rodgers and “felt like we left a lot out here” offensively against the Bills. They’ll try for better results in Detroit next weekend.

The Bengals had a loaded injury report on Wednesday Jeff Driskel Jersey , which even included Andy Dalton.Don’t panic, however, as Dalton was listed as a full participant while dealing with a back issue. This is the first time Dalton has popped up on the injury report in 2018, so it must have been something he sustained Sunday against the Steelers.The best news to come out of Wednesday was John Ross (groin) getting a full workload in. That bodes well for him making a return next Sunday when the Bengals face a Chiefs defense that Ross could burn for some big plays. Carlos Dunlap has a buttocks injury, so there’s that. As expected, Giovani Bernard (knee/toe), Darqueze Dennard (sternoclavicular), Tyler Kroft (foot), Billy Price (foot), Nick Vigil (knee) and Shawn Williams (concussion) all failed to practice Wednesday. They’re all expected to miss Sunday’s game in Kansas City. For the Chiefs http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-clint-boling-jersey , safety Eric Berry (heel), linebacker Justin Houston (hamstring) and center Mitch Morse (concussion protocol) were among the Chiefs who did not practice Wednesday. Houston and Berry are among the NFL’s best at their respective positions when healthy. Berry is not expected to play this week as he returns from last year’s torn Achilles. Houston’s hamstring injury is more iffy and he could return this week. As for Morse, he’s the Chiefs’ starting center, so not having him would be a big loss against a Bengals defense that has Geno Atkins, who is hungry for a big game after being held in check against Pittsburgh. PITTSBURGH (AP) — The win they needed but at times didn’t act like they particularly wanted finally secured, the Pittsburgh Steelers lingered on the Heinz Field turf after a sluggish 16-13 victory over Cincinnati on Sunday and turned their eyes to the massive videoboard in the south end zone.A season filled with promise six weeks ago before things came undone boiled down to something entirely out of Pittsburgh’s control: whether Cleveland could pull off a stunning rally in Baltimore.As a decidedly out-of-place chant of “Let’s Go Browns” reverberated and Cleveland marched into Ravens‘ territory, a third straight AFC North for the Steelers seemed possible.Then Cleveland rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield threw a late pick. The Ravens held on. Optimism evaporated. Replaced by a mix of harsh reality and a hint of wistfulness.The Steelers (9-6-1) firmly believe they would be a tough out in the playoffs. Instead, they won’t get the chance. The team that appeared assured of a fifth consecutive playoff berth following a six-game midseason winning streak instead will miss the postseason for the first time since 2013 after Indianapolis beat Tennessee later Sunday to lock down the final wild-card spot.“It just sucks,” Steelers guard David DeCastro said. “How hard we work, how much effort we put in. To go from 7-2-1 to where we are now is heartbreaking.”And avoidable. Yet four losses in five games — all of which the Steelers led at some point in the second half — forced them to enter Week 17 needing to beat the injury ravaged Bengals and a hope surging Cleveland could upset the Ravens on the road.“It’s just tough Alex Erickson Jersey ,” said Pittsburgh running back James Conner, who ran for 64 yards in his return to the lineup after missing three games with a sprained left ankle. “We’re relying on somebody else to advance.”The team that stressed it wouldn’t spend all afternoon scoreboard watching certainly looked distracted as Cincinnati took a 10-3 halftime lead. Pittsburgh eventually rallied behind quarterback Ben Roethlisberger — who threw for 287 yards and a touchdown despite missing injured star receiver Antonio Brown to finish with a career-best and NFL-high 5,129 yards passing — and new kicker Matt McCrane booted three field goals, the last a 35-yarder with 1:56 to go that put the Steelers ahead to stay.Pittsburgh held on when Cincinnati backup quarterback Jeff Driskel’s fourth-down pass intended for Josh Malone fell incomplete with 1:08 to go. Roethlisberger then took a pair of knees to run out the clock, setting the stage for the bizarre sight of the Steelers and thousands of black-and-gold clad fans cheering on the Browns.For a few anxious minutes, the dominoes appeared to be falling into place. When they didn’t, Pittsburgh didn’t place blame on Cleveland but countless missed opportunities.“It just makes me mad that as a leader of this group, we put ourselves in this situation like this, looking for others to do our job,” Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward said. “Cleveland played a heck of a game … it’s frustrating and as a leader of this group it’s just unacceptable.”Roethlisberger vowed to return for a 16th season. He turns 37 in March and doesn’t think Pittsburgh’s window is closing as long as the offensive line in front of him remains intact.“I still feel good Clayton Fejedelem Jersey ,” he said. “We keep that line together, that’ll give us a good fighting chance.”MARVIN’S MURKY FUTUREJoe Mixon rushed for 105 yards for the Bengals but Cincinnati (6-10) — which entered Sunday with 18 players on injured reserve, including quarterback Andy Dalton and wide receiver A.J. Green— lost for the seventh time in eight games and head into another offseason unsure about the future of longtime head coach Marvin Lewis.Cincinnati’s season turned at home against the Steelers back in October, when the Bengals let Pittsburgh go down the field in the final minute to pull out a 28-21 victory on Antonio Brown’s 31-yard catch and run with 10 seconds to play. An avalanche of injuries and losses followed. Lewis headed to the locker room surrounded by cameras, which he found “ridiculous” after his beat-up squad took the Steelers basically to the wire.“I think it’s sad (my status) is the only thing they can point to,” Lewis said. “This isn’t about me. This is about this football team and what they do. To make this about one person. It’s not about one person. This is my job. That’s it.”INJURIESBengals: WR Cody Core left late in the first quarter with a left elbow injury. Core was hurt while diving for a pass deep down the left sideline. … LT Cordy Glenn injured his left ankle after getting rolled up on during a scrum following fumble by Driskel in the third quarter. Safety Brandon Wilson left in the second half with a chest injury and tight end Matt Lengel exited with a left knee issue.Steelers: Brown missed his first game of the season while dealing with a knee injury. Pittsburgh also sat starting safety Sean Davis (quadriceps) and inside linebacker Vince Williams (toe).UP NEXTBengals: Owner Mike Brown will meet with Lewis to decide whether a 17th season is in the offing for the winning coach in franchise history.Steelers: While head coach Mike Tomlin is on firm ground, changes to the coaching staff could be made. Defensive coordinator Keith Butler’s unit struggled to create turnovers and the special teams were a mess under coordinator Danny Smith.

The depth chart will be the same for some position groups http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-william-jackson-jersey , but it will be totally different for others." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteCincy Junglea Cincinnati Bengals communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibraryBengalsOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBAFiled under:AnalysisWhich position groups have the most competition on the Bengals roster?New,68commentsThe depth chart will be the same for some position groups, but it will be totally different for others.EDTShareTweetShareShareWhich position groups have the most competition on the Bengals roster?Cincinnati Enquirer-USA TODAY NEWith a new head coach and new players added in the offseason, the Bengals roster is in for a potential shakeup.The Bengals needed personnel changes in several areas, and addressed some of those needs. There are some spots that have become vacant due to veterans leaving, i.e. Vontaze Burfict and Tyler Kroft. There are other spots that just straight up need an upgrade.But the Bengals added nearly two dozen players via free agency, the draft, and signing undrafted free agents. Which positions are in for a complete overhaul? Which positions will stay the same?Below is a list of each position group, in order of most competition to least competition.Offensive lineLike last year, the offensive line has gone through a notable overhaul relative to the rest of the roster, so there are a lot of players with a lot to prove.Jonah Williams will presumably start on opening day, but the main question is where. Right tackle would be a great place for him to land Mark Walton Jersey White , but he played on the left side for two years in college and should have no trouble playing inside at guard. Regardless, he’s a great plug-and-play kind of guy that can go wherever they need him.Newcomers John Miller and Michael Jordan will try to crack their way into the starting lineup as well. Returning starters Alex Redmond and Bobby Hart will have to fight for their lives if they want to keep starting. Redmond, Christian Westerman, and Rod Taylor will probably be on the chopping block, as well as Clint Boling, who might be a cap casualty.LinebackersReturning starters Nick Vigil and Preston Brown will keep their jobs, and Lou Anamuro will probably insert Germaine Pratt into the WILL spot left open courtesy of Burfict’s departure. Behind them is where most of the competition will be. Jordan Evans will be a backup at one of the outside linebacker spots, while Malik Jefferson presumably will earn the opposite spot. But don’t count out Jefferson’s ability to play inside as well. If he’s kept outside, Deshaun Davis and Hardy Nickerson figure to be the main competitors for the backup MIKE spot. Defensive lineOther than the top two defensive linemen on the team, the defensive line is a bit uncertain. Obviously, Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins will be there, but the other two spots on the line could be interesting. Andrew Billings will probably start on Day 1 Womens Tyler Kroft Jersey , but fourth-round pick Renell Wren could give him a run for his money. Behind them, Ryan Glasgow, Josh Tupou, Christian Ringo, and Niles Scott will all have to work for their living on the interior.On the edges, Sam Hubbard should replace Michael Johnson as the “base” end opposite of Dunlap. Free agent signing Kerry Wynn and Jordan Willis may have to earn their spots on the depth chart. Carl Lawson will also have to come back from an injury, so while he has earned a consistent role on the defense in past years, that role might fluctuate as he returns.SecondaryThe secondary is pretty cut-and-dry at the top of the depth chart, but the backup spots are still up in the air.B.W. Webb and Jordan Brown are the only newcomers to this group, and probably won’t shake things up too much. Webb will probably be the second slot corner behind Darqueze Dennard, but Brown, KeiVarae Russell Womens Clayton Fejedelem Jersey , Tony McRae, Darius Phillips and Davontae Harris will all have to compete for their spots on the totem pole.QuarterbacksNot that we thought that Andy Dalton’s job was in any danger when the Bengals drafted Ryan Finley, but Brian Callahan doubled down and assured the media that Dalton is still the starter.Behind Dalton is where things get interesting. Jeff Driskel and Finley are going to have to “compete” for the number two spot. Driskel’s past experience as the starter in the back end of the 2018 season might help him, but Finley has better tape, so they will have to work it out during training camp. Plus, it’s hard to see Finley not having the upper hand after the club traded up for him.Undrafted free agent Jake Dolegala will have a tough road ahead of him if he wants to make the roster at all. The practice squad seems like a safe bet for him.Wide receiversThe Bengals only added two receivers during the offseason in undrafted free agents Stanley Morgan Jr. and minicamp try-out Cory Contini. As with most groups, the bulk of the competition will be towards the bottom of the depth chart.A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd are not going anywhere, and John Ross’ speed still makes him the top candidate to be the third starter. Behind them, the depth chart is still pretty weak. Alex Erickson’s backup slot spot will probably be safe from Hunter Sharp, so there won’t be much competition there. Morgan, Cody Core, Josh Malone A.J. Green Jersey , Auden Tate and Kermit Whitfield will compete for the wideout spots, though a few of them will have be on the practice squad next season. Running backsJoe Mixon and Giovani Bernard will probably keep their RB1 and RB2 spots, respectively. Trayveon Williams, Rodney Anderson, and Quinton Flowers will have to fight for the spots behind them. Nothing too complicated.Tight EndsThe roles here are pretty much set in stone. Tyler Eifert will be the primary tight end, but C.J. Uzomah may be the more traditional player at the position whereas Eifert might just be a big slot receiver in hopes of preserving him for the entirety of the season. Drew Sample will be a primarily blocking tight end/H-back and used similarly to Uzomah.Behind them, Cethan Carter, Jordan Franks, and Mason Schreck will find themselves either on the practice squad or on the chopping block.Special TeamsSpecialists are athletes too. But the Bengals added no new specialists to the roster, so the pecking order should be exactly the same. The only change here might be a healthy Darius Phillips taking kickoff or punt returns. Will the Bengals finally find a play caller for their defense?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBABreaking NewsKeep track of the 2019 Bengals draft脳Bengals NewsBengals to interview Rams assistant Aubrey Pleasant for DC spot, per reportNew,41commentsWill the Bengals finally find a play caller for their defense?ESTShareTweetShareShareBengals to interview Rams assistant Aubrey Pleasant for DC spot Womens Geno Atkins Jersey , per reportKirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsThe Bengals hired a head coach to emulate the Rams’ offense. Now they want to emulate their defense too.Aubrey Pleasant, the Rams’ cornerbacks coach of the last two seasons, was requested by the Bengals to be interviewed for their defensive coordinator spot. It appears their request was accepted by the Rams. Pleasant will interview with Cincinnati later this week, per Gary Klein of the LA Times.Since Taylor was officially introduced as the Bengals’ head coach, two of his candidates, Jack Del Rio and Dom Capers, have declined the defensive coordinator job. Pleasant seems to be the favorite for the gig considering his connection to Taylor’s former team.After Pleasant interviews with the team, it was reported that Taylor has his eyes on a few other candidates as well. Texas A&M and Florida defensive coordinators Mike Elko and Todd Grantham are reported to receive interview requests, along with ex-Falcons defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel and Saints’ defensive backs coach Aaron Glenn.Pleasant has been with the Rams for as little time as Taylor. He’s been just as crucial of an assistant to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips as Taylor was for head coach Sean McVay. He’s also quite the energizer:We’ll see if Pleasant impresses Taylor and the Bengals’ organization enough to reunite him with Taylor in Cincinnati.

The last Jim Caldwell draft class faces an uncertain future with Matt Patricia’s new direction."Common understanding in the NFL is that for most positions you expect to see development from the rookie year to second season followed by a possible breakout in Year 3. As we enter that third year for the Detroit Lions’ 2017 draft class Womens Taylor Decker Jersey , it’s not as certain that we’re going to see that big leap that fans expect. Certain or not, it’s worth taking a look at the class and looking at both how they’ve progressed in their NFL careers and how they may be used in the coming season. Drafted for a different coaching staff than the team fields presently, there’s plenty of uncertainty in this group.LB Jarrad Davis (First round, 21st overall)2018 status: Starting ILB all year2019 status: Starting ILB once againLooking purely at statistics, Jarrad Davis improved from his first year in the league to his second. His tackles ticked slightly upwards, but his sack total tripled as he was used in a more versatile role in the passing game rather than he was used the year prior. As far as the eye test goes, the story is pretty much the same. Davis struggled in coverage as a rookie but was beastly at times against the run. In his second year, he seemed like he was able to do good work in every phase, but never all of them at the same time. It can be incredibly frustrating as a fan to witness, since it always seemed like he took a step forward and a step back at the same time.Entering his third season, we’re going to see if Davis’ preparation and hard work finally start to pay off. Often the first player on the practice field and last one off, speaking in real terms and not cliche, Davis is putting in the work to become the leader of the Lions defense. In his second year in Matt Patricia and Paul Pasqualoni’s system, he doesn’t fit the mold of what they each have traditionally wanted as an inside linebacker. Not fitting the mold doesn’t mean he can’t be successful, however, and if he’s able to put his tremendous talents together with the strides he took in 2018, we could be looking at the flamethrower Teryl Austin could never seem to find.CB Teez Tabor (Second Round, 53rd Overall)2018 Status: Reserve cornerback, fighting for a role2019 Status: Reserve cornerback, fighting for a roster spotWhen you take a cornerback who lacks both speed and explosiveness, you’re banking on some other trait being strong enough to offset that lack of physical talent. With Tabor, it was his football intelligence and ball skills that set him apart enough that many were willing to overlook his athletic flaws and justify the high selection in their minds. Now entering his third season, we’re questioning both of those supposed strengths as Tabor has yet to record even a single pass deflection and seems to have struggled to grasp even the simplest of NFL defensive concepts.After being overtaken by an undrafted rookie in 2018, it seemed like things were looking pretty grim for Teez Tabor on the Lions roster. The Lions would then go out and draft a third-round safety who is could potentially play some nickel corner and a fifth rounder with promising prospects. That is on top of making cornerback one of their free agency priorities, signing in both Justin Coleman and Rashaan Melvin to contracts that sugggest they will be commanding snaps. With many ahead of him who could be considered locks, Tabor has to show some pretty huge leaps forward to even make the 2019 roster, let alone find his way to the active gameday lineup. Like his rookie season and its follow up Taylor Decker Jersey White , Tabor has started off 2019 pretty hot, so here’s to hoping this is the year he takes that much needed step this time.WR Kenny Golladay (Third Round, 96th Overall)2018 Status: Breakout star2019 Status: Starting receiver trying to decide if he’s WR1 or WR2A surprise selection (for most) in 2017, Golladay burst onto the scene as a rookie showcasing powerful hands and a dangerous knack for getting open over the top. In his second year, he would break 1,000 yards, taking a Lions’ share of the team’s targets as Marvin Jones dealt with injury and Golden Tate dealt with being thrown passes by a different quarterback on a different team.If there was one criticism for Golladay worth having, it would have to do with his ability to create separation. If the ball is in the air and he’s fighting for it, the Lions’ Kenny G is as money as the musician Kenny G is with a saxophone, but ask him to get far enough away from a defensive back as to make a completed pass a non-question, and it’s a different story. The focus on the run game and potential to open up the deep passing game again puts the Lions in an interesting situation with their receivers, but Golladay has had a strong enough start to his career to make fans comfortable in what to expect from him.LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin (Fourth Round, 124th Overall)2018 Status: Reserve linebacker2019 Status: Fighting for his roster spotFew were impacted more by the change in defensive staff than Jalen Reeves-Maybin. After a decent start as a rookie where he found a role as a cover linebacker and sub-package linebacker, his usage and effectiveness tanked in 2018. Injuries further dulled his impact with the team, which was a concern coming out of Tennessee.Matt Patricia has talked about what traits he favors in his linebackers and based on his comments and our brief view of his tendencies we can state with certainty that size is chief among those traits. It’s also a trait that Reeves-Maybin lacks, and that lack of size and length is likely a contributor to his drop in usage. After the team picked up Devon Kennard and Christian Jones in 2018, many thought JRM would find a decent role based on his previous usage, but it didn’t come to pass. In 2019, the team drafted a larger, versatile linebacker in Jahlani Tavai and a pass rusher in Austin Bryant that appears to be headed to a similar role as Kennard. This is a bad sign for Jalen Reeves-Maybin, who seems to be on the outside looking in.TE Michael Roberts (Fourth Round, 127th Overall)2018 Status: TE32019 Status: Fighting for his roster spotThe warning signs were there when the Lions selected Roberts in the 2017 draft. He had the worst measurements of all of the drafted tight ends in what was considered at the time the best tight end draft class in a very long time. His size, a big selling point, didn’t seem to translate to blocking as he was viewed more as a receiving option only by most of those who had evaluated him. Mid-round pick expectations should always be tempered, but with Toledo being considered a local school and with such a positive attitude out of the gate, Roberts was a hard guy to root against.His rookie season was rough, but it often is even for the higher drafted tight end Quandre Diggs Jersey White , so few were very concerned. His second season saw him entering a squad with Luke Willson and Levine Toilolo, a group he could very easily have overtaken. This was an ideal situation to break out and take a starting job for yourself. As the season wore on, Luke Willson disappointed and while Toilolo’s blocking was phenomenal, he offered little as a receiving threat. And still, Roberts looked well out of his element. The TE3 on a team that barely had three tight ends. Now, the Lions signed a tight end early in free agency in Jesse James, drafted one eighth overall in T.J. Hockenson, and made the tight end group one of the most crowded positions on the team. Best of luck to him, but this isn’t going to be an easy group to break into in 2019.CB Jamal Agnew (Fifth Round, 165th Overall)2018 Status: All Pro punt returner, but injury shortened his season.2019 Status: Likely looking at the same role, fighting for more defensive snaps.Jamal Agnew was the fastest player at 2017 Lions training camp. Yes, faster than Darius Slay. The Lions wanted to find a use for him immediately, so he became their returner and thrived in that role. For a while he was one of the most electric players in the NFL, even seeing the field for gadget offensive plays to try to take advantage of his ludicrous speed.2018, unfortunately, went differently. He was still a strong returner, but he struggled in his time as the team’s nickel. The good news is that he started to improve in each of the games he played, picking up the role well and learning as he went. Sadly, he was injured and lost for most of the season, so we never got to see how that development would have panned out. The team signed Justin Coleman in free agency, and early predictions have Coleman locking down that slot job. It will be tough for Agnew to gain snaps in a now crowded defensive backfield, but his special teams value can’t be overstated.DT Jeremiah Ledbetter (Sixth Round, 205th Overall)2018 Status: Cut and signed by the Buccaneers2019 Status: Not here.Though he had a promising rookie campaign, Ledbetter was unable to retain his roster spot last season and ended up with Tampa Bay. He didn’t do much for them but has a shot to stick if he can regain or build upon the flashes he had as a rookie.QB Brad Kaaya (Sixth Round, 215th Overall)2018 Status: Injured reserve for the Colts2019 Status: Unrestricted free agent.Kaaya failed to crack the roster as a rookie and after bouncing around the NFL for a bit remains a free agent today.Pat O’Connor (Seventh Round, 250th Overall)2018 Status: Buccaneers practice squad.2019 Status: Fighting for his roster spot with the BucsO’Connor http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-quandre-diggs-jersey , like Kaaya, failed to make the roster as a rookie. Like Ledbetter, he ended up with the Buccaneers. He remains there, hoping to latch on. 2018 was a rough season for many Detroit Lions.

Who will take the biggest step forward in 2019?EDTShareTweetShareShareWednesday open thread: Who will be the most improved Detroit Lion in 2019?Photo by Dylan Buell/Getty Images2018 was an up-and-down season if we’ve ever seen one. The Lions started off their first defensive play with a pick-six, only to get trampled by a rookie quarterback on a mediocre team in prime time. They bounced back to a record of 3-3 after a “Sunday Night Football” beatdown of the New England Patriots, only to collapse down the stretch once more. It wouldn’t be a complete Lions season, however, without the glimmer of false hope given in Week 17 when the Lions tore apart a hampered Green Bay Packers team.Along the way, we saw numerous players toy with our feelings as well. We fell in love with Kerryon Johnson, only to see him land on IR. We were let down by the Marvin Jones Jr. who wowed us throughout the 2017 season. As the year came to a close, we learned to love our star-studded defensive line, particularly Damon “Snacks” Harrison and Da’Shawn Hand. There was plenty to be happy about, but also a lot left to be desired, as is the case when your team only wins six games. So, that begs the question:Who will be the most improved Detroit Lion in 2019?My answer: I’m going to cheat this question a little bit — you’re waiting for me to answer this with the name of a player. Instead, I think the most improved Detroit Lion in 2019 will be head coach Matt Patricia. Patricia seemed extremely out of place along the sideline in the beginning of the 2018 season, and he was befuddled with rookie coaching mistakes all the while. It seems the tides have turned, however, and having a year under his belt has allowed him to grow comfortable with his team and his role, most recently evidenced by this viral photo of him at Lions minicamp.Who do you think will be the most improved Lion in 2019? Will it be a player, a coach, perhaps even the guy who manages the salary cap? Let us know in the comments.Tweets from https://twitter.com/PrideOfDetroit/lists/lions-coverage

How The Houston Texans Fare In The AFC South Comparison Trap Over at FRSFootball.com Dylan Cole Jersey , draft specialist Jon Ledyard recently did a piece rating the various position groups in the AFC South. If the article and results therein are any indication of how Ledyard perceives the intradivision battle for this year, your Houston Texans aren’t looking too good. The groups he discussed are quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, offensive line, defensive line, edge defenders, linebackers, cornerbacks, and safeties. Of those ten categories, Houston took first place in only one group: wide receivers.Well Womens Corey Moore Jersey , how about second place, you ask? The Texans landed in the number two spot just once: edge defenders.At least the Texans aren’t all bad; the offensive line was the only Texans crew to land in fourth place in Ledyard’s analysis. Not that this is a shock to anyone who spends any time hanging around here. What do you think? Convinced Ledyard has lost his marbles? Think he’s dead on? Want to debate with random memes depicting Brock Osweiler throwing fumbles under hilarious captions questioning his ability to function as a professional athlete? Hammer the comment button and bring it on! What does the configuration of the schedule mean for the Texans?"As we learned last year, the scheduling of the NFL season can make or break a team.Last year, the Texans could have been home for the NFL Playoffs with a bye if their Week 16 Eagles game took place earlier in the season, when Philadelphia was struggling.Although the schedule does not affect how well teams perform, it is significant in how teams shake out at the end of the season.Let’s break down the Texans’ 2019 schedule by dividing it into four quarters, with each quarter being comprised of four games.Weeks 1-4: @ Saints (MNF), vs. Jaguars, @ Chargers, vs. PanthersTo open up the season with the Saints on the road is a major YIKES!The last important NFL game to take place in New Orleans was the NFC Championship, where the Saints lost controversially and unexpectedly.Now the Saints will come marching in with all eyes on reversing their fortunes by beating the Texans for all of America to see on national TV.If it is any consolation, the Saints fell to the lowly Bucs during their home opener last year after losing the previous year in the playoffs to the Vikings in the Minnesota Miracle.I would not tab the Saints as an automatic win or loss just yet. It could be a benefit to play the Saints early in the season before they get into a rhythm.Or it could be the worst case scenario.As for the other games to begin the season Womens Jeff Allen Jersey , the Jaguars pose as a winnable game in Houston’s home opener, and playing the Chargers early in the season might also be a benefit.These are the games that players will miss with four-game PED suspensions or by being placed on the PUP list.I think 2-2 is difficult with this first foursome, but achievable. Weeks 5-8: vs. Falcons, @ Chiefs, @ Colts, vs. RaidersThe home games in this stretch are winnable, but they are sandwiched around two very difficult road games against playoff teams from a year ago.This means that defeating the Falcons and Raiders will be two very important contests for the Texans, as the Chiefs and Colts games are two games the Texans will be expected to lose.If the Texans can go 2-2 in this quarter, it will be an accomplishment. Going 3-1 or 4-0 would be phenomenal, and the Texans would be considered as a playoff threat at this point in the season.If the Texans can get to 5-3, I’d be very content. 4-4 wouldn’t be bad either. 3-5 or worse is very possible and would worry me.Weeks 9-13: @ Jaguars (London), BYE http://www.thetexanslockerroom.com/authentic-arian-foster-jersey , @ Ravens, Colts (TNF), Patriots (SNF)Here comes the true gauntlet in Houston’s schedule.The Texans play their first game in franchise history outside of North America when the team faces the Jags in LondonThe Jags are a beatable opponent, but it will be interesting to see how the Texans will adjust to playing in London against a team with a lot of players with London experience. It could cause the visitors to slip up and fumble a winnable game.After the team returns home and enjoys their bye, the toughest three-game stretch in the 2019 schedule awaits.All three opponents in Weeks 11-13 played extra football last season. The Ravens can improve in Year 2 of the Lamar Jackson era, and the Texans have never played particularly well in Baltimore.Then come the Colts and Pats, the two teams that have given the Texans the most trouble as of late, both of which will be played in primetime.It would be nice for this to be the time where the Pats hit their midseason slump or for the Colts to be ailing on a short week, but recent history suggests that neither will happen.If the Texans can get two wins out of this quarter of the season, I’ll be impressed.Weeks 14-17: vs. Broncos, @ Titans, @ Bucs Jadeveon Clowney Jersey White , vs. TitansThe best part about Houston’s schedule is that four of the final six games take place at NRG Stadium.Kareem Jackson makes his return to Houston in Week 14 as the Broncos face his former Texans.The Broncos game could be a season-saving game if the Texans win, so the team will need to be sharp on that day.Then comes the unusual two games in three weeks stretch with the Titans and Bucs sandwiched in the middle.It’s very possible that the Titans could be eliminated from playoff contention at this point in the season, which will help the Texans chances. Then again, the Texans might also be eliminated from playoff contention if they cannot get past the prior midseason gauntlet.The Bucs on the road in December is an excellent part of the schedule. The Texans struggled last year playing the Eagles so close to Christmas.The coldest game of the year might come in Nashville during Week 15 or maybe Baltimore in Week 11.This final quarter is probably the easiest for the Texans, so if the team can stay in playoff contention for the first twelve games, they’ll have a great chance to make the playoffs with a favorable schedule to end the season.The Texans had the easiest schedule in the league last season based on win percentage. Now, their strength of schedule ranks fourth in the league at .527 based on last year’s strength of schedule. It’s definitely a big change, but the Texans’ win-loss record won’t come down to who they play and when they do, but rather how they play on the field.What’s your best guess as to how the Texans will fare in 2019?

Two more assistants officially join Zac Taylor’s new staff."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBABreaking NewsKeep track of the 2019 Bengals draft脳Bengals announce hiring of Mark Duffner and Gerald ChatmanNew http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-shawn-williams-jersey ,31commentsTwo more assistants officially join Zac Taylor’s new staff. ESTShareTweetShareShareBengals announce hiring of Mark Duffner and Gerald ChatmanThe Cincinnati Bengals have announced the hiring of two more assistant coaches in Mark Duffner (senior defensive assistant) and Gerald Chatman (defensive assistant). Duffner, 65, joins the Bengals after spending the last three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as linebackers coach. Last season, Duffner served as defensive coordinator for the Bucs’ final 11 games, after the team made mid-season coaching staff changes.Duffner brings with him 45 years of coaching experience, including 22 years in the NFL. He previously spent six seasons (1997-02) on the Bengals’ coaching staff, including two seasons as the team’s defensive coordinator in ’01 and ’02. He also has spent time with the Green Bay Packers (2003-05), the Jacksonville Jaguars (’06-13) and the Miami Dolphins (’14-15).Duffner’s experience in the college ranks includes head coaching positions at Maryland (1992-96) and Holy Cross (’86-91). He also served as defensive coordinator at Holy Cross (1981-85) and the University of Cincinnati (’77-80). He began his coaching career at Ohio State, where he was a graduate assistant from 1975-76 under head coach Woody Hayes. Duffner was a defensive lineman at William and Mary, where he earned a degree in physical education.Chatman, 30, joins the Bengals after spending the last two seasons at Tennessee State University, where he was defensive ends/outside linebackers coach, and then added the role of special teams coordinator in 2018. Prior to Tennessee State, Chatman coached at Elon University (defensive line, 2016), Texas A&M University (graduate assistant Womens Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey , ’15), Butler University (defensive line coach and assistant recruiting coordinator, ’14), Ball State University (defensive graduate assistant, ’12-13), and the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh (defensive line, ’10-11).Chatman also has held offseason coaching intern positions with the Bengals (2018), the Denver Broncos (’16) and the Green Bay Packers (’15). He played defensive tackle at Wisconsin-Oshkosh, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in educational leadership and human services. He later earned a master’s degree in adult and community education from Ball State. The last time the Eagles opened a season as NFL champions, it was 1960 and, well, who remembers what folks did then in Philadelphia?What they’ll certainly do Thursday night at the Linc when the Falcons come to town is roar with approval at the site of the Lombardi Trophy and the championship banner. Fans will sing many, many choruses of “Fly Eagles Fly.”And then the guys on the field will get down to business, defending the title they took away from New England last February.That defense will be difficult, particularly in the NFC, a stronger conference than the AFC.“Quite honestly, it’s going to be a great night from that standpoint Darqueze Dennard Jersey ,” coach Doug Pederson says of the season opener. “The fans that are in attendance are going to be crazy and they’re going to be excited. It’s going to be great for the banner to be dropped in Lincoln Financial (Field). It’s going to be a great atmosphere.“I think with this football team, though, they understand this is a different season, it’s a new team, new year. We’re sitting here 0-0 with a great opportunity against a great opponent — a playoff/Super Bowl-caliber team coming in here. Quite honestly, that’s their focus.”It had better be, because the Falcons barely lost in Philly in the divisional round last winter, and they’ve upgraded on both sides of the ball. Atlanta, No. 8 in the AP Pro32, comes in as a 2½-point underdog to top-ranked Philadelphia.Pro Picks goes out on a limb early.UPSET SPECIAL: FALCONS, 22-20KNOCKOUT POOLWe didn’t stick around for too long last year, so consider that when we choose the SAINTS to win this weekend.No. 15 San Francisco (plus 6) at No. 3 MinnesotaJimmy Garoppolo is undefeated as a starting quarterback.

The POD Community Mock Draft kicks off with a predictable Taylor Decker Jersey White , yet logical pick."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions NotesDetroit Lions AnalysisDetroit Lions TransactionsDetroit Lions Game RecapsBreaking NewsIntroducing the 2019 Detroit Lions Draft Class! 脳NFL Draft2019 NFL mock draft: Arizona Cardinals select Kyler MurrayNew,58commentsThe POD Community Mock Draft kicks off with a predictable, yet logical pick. EDTShareTweetShareShare2019 NFL mock draft: Arizona Cardinals select Kyler MurrayJasen Vinlove-USA TODAY SportsThe Pride of Detroit 2019 Community Mock Draft is LIVE! The general managers are set, the players are nervously tapping their feet under the table, waiting for that one, life-altering call, and the POD community is ready to harshly grade out every pick, as they do every year. First up is the Arizona Cardinals. Interim general manager youguysaredumb has turned in the card, and commissioner Roger Goodell is ready to announce the pick to a chorus of boos. With the first pick in the 2019 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the Cardinals have selected...Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray. Here is youguysaredumb with the explanation:“I’m sticking with the consensus and selecting Kyler Murray as the next QB. New head coach Kliff Kingsbury gets his guy to run his offense. They can keep Josh Rosen as insurance or trade him for other assets. Lots of options here.Arizona has many needs, and this may not be the smartest pick, but it just might work! Nick Bosa Quandre Diggs Jersey White , Quinnen Williams, and Josh Allen would be great picks at No. 1, but none of them can change a team the way a great quarterback can. Kyler Murray, Heisman winner, is that guy in Kingsbury’s offense. He’s quick, mobile, and has a good arm. He could develop into a Drew Brees type of franchise QB that the Cardinals desperately need.”Now it’s time for you to grade that pick. How did youguysaredumb do? All eyes will be on Sam Darnold when the New York Jets open their season against the Detroit Lions.But the five big guys lined up in front of him will play a major role in the success — or failure — of the rookie quarterback and his offense Monday night."It's super important developing that trust and chemistry with your teammates," Darnold said. "That's mostly what football is. We're on that field together, we've got to communicate. We've all got to be in sync together, so that's really what it is, just communicating."That has been a point of emphasis all offseason, but is particularly important this week as the 21-year-old quarterback continues to try to build a rapport with an offensive line that struggled with consistency last season.It's still a work-in-progress http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-quandre-diggs-jersey , though. When left tackle Kelvin Beachum, left guard James Carpenter, center Spencer Long, right guard Brian Winters and right tackle Brandon Shell trot onto the field in noisy Ford Field, it'll mark the first time all five will be together for a snap in a game."I'm very optimistic," offensive line coach Rick Dennison said. "I think they've worked hard and done a good job. Obviously, it's the start of the regular season and there's a little bit of the unknown, but I feel good about the guys."Beachum didn't play in the preseason because of a sprained right foot that kept him out of team drills for most of training camp. He has been a full participant in practice this week and appears to be a full go.Same for Winters, who dealt with tightness in his back this summer and sat out the second preseason game against Washington."We've been around each other quite a bit during this whole process, so we can't get into this excuse-making that people on the outside are trying to bring into the locker room right now," Beachum said. "For us, we've got to go out and perform. We're professionals. Every one of us across the offensive line has played games in the National Football League. When our number is called upon Austin Bryant Jersey 2019 , we know we've got to execute and perform."The Jets are facing a tough task off the bat with Ezekiel Ansah roaming the Lions' defensive front. He had 12 sacks last season and has been lining up on the right side of new coach Matt Patricia's defense, but is athletic enough to move all around the line.Beachum is fully expecting to face him quite a bit Monday night. The two last squared off in 2016 when Beachum was with Jacksonville. Ansah had four overall tackles in that game, but no sacks."He's a very disruptive pass rusher," Beachum said. "I would say one of the best in the league. The NFC North presents a number of different animals on the edge. He's one of those different animals in the NFC North. I'm excited to play him again. I know it's going to be a great test to start the year."The game will also mark Long's debut with the Jets after he signed with New York as a free agent in the offseason. He replaces Wesley Johnson, who struggled last year in a full-time role as the center after the Jets released Nick Mangold.Long, who spent his first four seasons with Washington, has impressed his new teammates with his cerebral approach to the game."He's been great, real good," Winters said. "He's a good communicator, a physical player. He's in the books a lot. He's a 'mind' guy and he kind of reminds me a little bit of Nick. Nick was real smart when it came to the breakdown of the game."Added Shell: "He analyzes everything and it's like he knows what's going to happen, so he puts us in the right position with calls. I'm just grateful to have him on the line."As the center, Long is responsible for calling the signals along the offensive line and making sure the guys on either side of him are seeing the same thing.Since offseason workouts Color Rush Austin Bryant Jersey , he has been working closely with his linemates on the field and in the film room, trying to develop the type of chemistry that will be key on gameday."It goes as he goes," Winters said. "He makes the calls and we've got to abide by it and listen to it. Whatever he says, goes. He's got a lot of weight on his shoulders, but we all trust in him."And, Darnold will need to have faith in all five linemen, who'll be trying to keep him upright while also giving him time to throw or busting open holes for the running backs to run through and get the offense moving consistently."He's done a great job of being able to communicate and understand what the defense is presenting him, and then putting us in a better position to either pick up a blitz or slide a different way," Beachum said of Darnold. "He's done things the right way to put us in a better position."At the end of the day, we have to make sure that we protect him."

DETROIT (AP) — Russell Wilson was perfect.Seattle’s game plan was pretty good Frank Ragnow Jersey , too.Wilson threw three touchdown passes in the second quarter to put the Seahawks ahead and they went on to beat the Detroit Lions 28-14 Sunday, leaning on their running game and defense just as they have throughout their turnaround.“We can do whatever we want right now,” Wilson said.The Seahawks (4-3) looked sharp on both sides of the ball coming off their bye and won for the fourth time in five games after opening the season with two losses.“I’m always going to regret that we started lousy,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said.Wilson completed 10 passes, two for scores, before having an incompletion late in the second quarter. He finished 14 of 17 for 248 yards, leading to a perfect quarterback rating. Wilson’s 24-yard pass to Tyler Lockett, 15-yard throw to David Moore and 12-yard pass to Ed Dickson for touchdowns gave Seattle a 21-7 lead at halftime.Chris Carson, who had 105 of Seattle’s 176 yards rushing, scored on a 7-yard run early in the fourth to put the Seahawks up 28-7.“We ran 42 times,” Carroll said. “I couldn’t be more fired up about that.”Detroit acquired run-stuffing defensive tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison from the New York Giants for a fifth-round pick just four days before the game, but he wasn’t able to immediately help one of the NFL’s worst run defenses.“We have to start learning how to play off him,” Lions defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois said.The Lions (3-4) had won three of four in large part because they didn’t turn the ball over much and finally found a running game. They lost the ball three times and had just 34 yards rushing against Seattle.“I’ve got to do a better job getting the team ready Marvin Jones Jersey ,” Detroit coach Matt Patricia said.The Lions got off to a solid start against Seattle, breaking a scoreless tie late in the first quarter on Matthew Stafford’s 39-yard pass to Marvin Jones. The Lions were then held scoreless for two quarters before Stafford threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Jones early in the fourth to cut the deficit to 14.Stafford lost a fumble midway through the fourth quarter and threw an interception with 3:08 to go at the Seattle 1.SURPRISE!To seal the victory, Seahawks punter Michael Dickson ran out of his end zone and gained 9 yards on a fourth-and-8 from the Seattle 3 on a play that was designed for him to take a safety.“He went against all traditions and everything, but he saw the situation and he took advantage of it,” Carroll said. “It was truly a surprise .”Clearly, the Lions also did not see the play coming.“We’ll go back and look at it and see where the breakdown was in that situation,” Patricia said. “He saw the space and he took it.”BEGINNING OF ENDThe game, though, began to slip away from Detroit earlier in the afternoon when Ameer Abdullah fumbled on a kickoff return in the second quarter.Wilson took advantage, connecting with Moore for a go-ahead touchdown pass that went off his left arm and helmet before he grabbed it. On Seattle’s next drive, Carroll won a challenge to have Moore credited with a catch to keep a drive going that ended with Dickson’s touchdown.“A year ago, that would not have been a catch,” Carroll said.STAFFORD SETBACKStafford was 27 of 40 for 310 with two touchdowns Darius Slay Jersey , an interception and a fumble. He had thrown two touchdowns without an interception in the previous three games. Unlike recent games, he could not rely on a running game and was forced to throw more than planned.“We were coming in with a balanced game plan and obviously the score got to where it was,” Stafford said. “We had to try and do some things to get back into it.”TIMELY CELEBRATIONThe Seahawks celebrated Lockett’s touchdown with a nod to baseball just hours before Game 5 of the World Series. Lockett was trying to look like a pitcher when he threw the football and hit Doug Baldwin, who ran at his teammate as if he was charging the mound and was hit with a phantom punch.Wilson, who played two seasons of minor league baseball, joined in and threw a fake punch.“I came out of the bullpen for that one,” he joked.INJURY REPORTSeahawks: SS Bradley McDougald left with an apparent shoulder injury, but was able to return. “He got banged around, but he was ill,” Carroll said.Dickson and linebacker K.J. Wright returned from injuries to play for the first time this season. “It’s a great boost,” Carroll said.Lions: LB Christian Jones left in the fourth quarter with a knee injury.UP NEXTSeahawks: Host Los Angeles Chargers next Sunday.Lions: At Minnesota next Sunday.

Given their unbelievalbe string of success, they have become a mainstay at the end of each round in the NFL Draft... if they don’t trade out of it.Commenter sterankofan has been waiting patiently for his time on the clock Matthew Stafford Jersey , and to bring the first round of the POD Community Mock to a close, the Patriots have selected Georgie defensive end D’Andre Walker. Here’s sterankofan with the explanation:“A bit of a no-brainer here, as all Lions fans know the Pats lost Trey Flowers.Walker, the 6-foot-2, 251 pound prospect, continues a run started last year, when Belichick took Kirby Smart’s Sony Michel and Isaiah Wynn in the first round a year ago.Bill loves to take prospects from coaches he respects.When Walker was finally inserted into the starting lineup at Georgia, he delivered 11 tackles for a loss and 7.5 sacks.Walker is powerfully built with good first three steps and plays low with good leverage. He’s capable of dropping into space or exploding towards the QB.And he’s had excellent production over his last two seasons.He is not a natural knee bender, more of a waist bender and can be duck footed. He needs to develop better instincts and work on his open field technique.His worst tape was likely the Alabama game.The Pats may well go with a WR at this spot, but given the one I wanted was off the board, this seemed the next best option.”Catch up on all of the picks with our Community Mock Draft Tracker

[INTERIOR OFFICE - DAY](Bill O’Brien walks up to desk of Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent)O’Brien:Hello Cheap Kahale Warring Jersey , I wish to register a complaint.(Vincent stares at computer, the faint sound of Candy Crush music plays)O’Brien:Hello, miss?Vincent:What do you mean, “miss?”O’Brien:I’m sorry, I have a cold.I wish to make a complaint.Vincent:I’m sorry, we’re just closing for second lunch.O’Brien:Never mind that, Troy, I wish to complain about this cornerback my former general manager obtained not four years ago from this very draft apparatus.Vincent:Oh, yeah Kevin Johnson, corner out of Wake Forest.What’s wrong with him?O’Brien:I’ll tell you what’s wrong with him.He’s dead, that’s what’s wrong with him.Vincent:No, no, he’s resting.Look.(Vincent points to Kevin Johnson, whose eyes are closed.Drool is very clearly coming from his mouth)O’Brien:Look Kahale Warring Jersey Womens , man, I know a dead cornerback when I see one, and I’m looking at one right now.Vincent:No, no, Bill, he’s not dead, he’s resting!O’Brien:Resting?Vincent:Yeah.Remarkable corner, Kevin Johnson is, beautiful plumage.O’Brien:Weird thing to say, but whatever.The plumage doesn’t enter into it.He’s stone dead.Vincent:Dead tired because he’s resting!O’Brien:Fine.I’ll wake him up if he’s resting.(O’Brien faces Kevin Johnson, who has slid onto the floor of the office in something resembling a puddle if a puddle were in human form)O’Brien:WAKE UP, KEVIN!TIME FOR SCHOOL KEVIN!I’VE GOT A LOVELY SANDWICH FOR YOU IF YOU WAKE UP!(Vincent nudges Johnson)Vincent:See!He moved right there!O’Brien:He did not, you just shoved him!Vincent:I did no such thing.O’Brien:You totally did, Troy!(O’Brien kneels Kahale Warring Houston Texans Jersey , puts his face right next to Johnson’s face)O’Brien:HELLO KEVIN!! KEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVIIIIIIIIIIIIIN!!!!!(O’Brien shakes Johnson vigorously)O’Brien:WAKE UP, KEVIN JOHNSON, TIME TO SHINE!!!(O’Brien lifts Johnson to his feet.Johnson promptly falls to the ground with a comical thud)O’Brien:Now that’s what I call a dead para—I mean—cornerback.Vincent:No, he’s just stunned is all.O’Brien (groans):I’ve had just about enough of this.This cornerback is definitely deceased.And when we drafted him in 2015, I was told that his lack of movement was due to him trying to take care of himself for his future career as a Houston Texan.Vincent:He’s just pining for a chance to get back on the field, probably.O’Brien (exasperated):PINING TO GET BACK ON THE FIELD?!Why’d he fall flat on his back the moment we got him in pads?!Vincent:The Wake Forest Cornerback prefers keeping on his back.Wonderful player, the Wake Forest Corner, beautiful plumage.O’Brien:Look, if he could get back on the field, he would’ve been in decent enough shape that we could’ve taken him off injured reserve.Now the time has come and we can’t take him off the injured reserve list because he’s no better now than when he went on IR earlier this year.Vincent:Maybe he’s trying to give the other corners on the team a chance to show what they’re worth.Wake Forest Corners are like that, you know.After all, if he were like just any other corner, he’d just dash onto the field ready for action.O’Brien:This corner wouldn’t move if you put 6,000 volts through him.He’s friggin’ demised.Vincent:He’s not Kahale Warring Jersey 2019 , he—he’s pining!O’Brien:He’s not pining, he’s passed on.This cornerback is no more.He has ceased to be a football player.He has gone on to an early offseason.THIS IS A LATE CORNERBACK!If you hadn’t “Weekend At Bernie’s” him across the stage in 2015, he’d be pushing up the football daisies.THIS IS AN EX-CORNERBACK!Vincent:Well, I guess we should get you a replacement then.O’Brien:That’s more like it.You want anything done in this league, you’ve gotta complain until you’re steel blue in the face.Vincent:Sorry, dude, we don’t have any cornerbacks right now.O’Brien:Of course not.That would be too easy.Vincent:I’ve got a defensive tackle.O’Brien:Does he shut down wide receivers?Vincent:Not really, no.O’Brien:Then he’s not really much of a replacement, is he?Vincent:Can I interest you in a late-model Dunta Robinson?O’Brien:I want...a fresh...cornerback.Vincent:Well, do you have the receipt for Johnson?O’Brien:No, that would be in the possession of our former general manager, Rick Smith.Vincent:Ah, so it’s his doing then.You should talk to him about getting a replacement.O’Brien:What?(Vincent rings a bell, returns to his computer)Vincent:Thank you Kahale Warring Jersey Mens , good day.Please come back with your receipt and a legally binding buy—UprootedTexan:Okay, both of you, stop that.It’s silly.(O’Brien and Vincent look at UprootedTexan who has no real business being in his own post)O’Brien:What are—Vincent:Yeah, what—UprootedTexan:Never mind that now.Neither of you had a funny line to end this post with and neither did I.So we’re just going to move on to a different post.Ready?And now for something completely different. As the Texans prepare to face the Colts for the third time this season in today’s first wild card game, there’s one area in particular where they can feel very good: Their defensive line got the better of the Colts’ offensive line in both regular-season games.Although the Colts’ offensive line was much improved this season, thanks in large part to the arrival of the great rookie guard Quenton Nelson, they struggled against the Texans’ defensive front. In the first game against the Texans, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was sacked a season-high four times, with J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney getting two sacks each. In the second matchup, Luck was sacked twice. Luck was only sacked 18 times all year, the fewest sacks in the NFL, but one-third of those sacks came courtesy of the Texans.Running the ball, the Colts consistently struggled to create holes against the Texans’ defense. The Colts managed just 91 yards on 40 carries in two games against the Texans, an average of just 2.28 yards per carry. The Colts’ two worst games this season Youth Kahale Warring Jersey , in terms of average yards per carry, were in Week 14 against the Texans, when they averaged 2.2 yards per carry, and Week 4 against the Texans, when they averaged 2.4 yards per carry.The Colts still matched up well with the Texans overall, beating them in Week 14 and taking them deep into overtime before losing in Week 4. But if the Colts can improve anything, it would be better blocking against Watt, Clowney and the rest of the Houston front.

The Steelers needed a win in order to stay in playoff contention after losing four of their last five. A Bengals win against the Steelers or a Ravens win against the Browns would have meant the end of the road for the Steelers. Each team entered the game missing their top wide receivers. Antonio Brown was missing for the Steelers White Michael Jordan Jersey , and it totally changed the look of their offense.The first quarter was uneventful as neither team could do much on offense. But early in the second quarter, the Bengals struck first thanks to Shawn Williams’ fifth interception of the year. Thanks to some good blocking, Williams returned the pick 58 yards for the score with 12:37 remaining in the second quarter. Bullock converted the extra point and the Bengals were suddenly up 7-0.On the next possession for the Bengals, Driskel threw the ball well and kept the chains moving. Driskel was five for six with 50 yards, and a perfect three for three with 35 yard to Alex Erickson. The drive ended in a 49-yard field goal with 2:12 left in the half to extend their lead to 10-0.Alex Redmond was flagged for an unnecessary roughness penalty on the field goal, so the Steelers ended up starting on their own 45-yard line after the kick return. The Bengals did force the Steelers into a fourth-and-one, but gave up a 16-yard reception to Xavier Grimble for the first down. Thanks to a penalty Tyler Eifert Jersey , the damage was limited to a field goal from Matt McCrane. His 39-yarder was enough to get the Steelers 3 points as the clock expired, with the Bengals leading 10-3 at halftime.Despite outscoring the offense in the half, the Bengals defense had already reached franchise and league records that no one ever wanted to break. The Bengals set the new record for yards given up in a single season, beating the 1995 squad. With the last-second field goal, the Bengals also broke the NFL record set by the Colts in 2001 for the most points given up in a single quarter after giving up their 203rd second-quarter point this season.The second quarter was just more of the same, with each team punting in the first three drives. The Steelers finally showed some offense with five minutes left in the quarter with a 47-yard pass to James Washington. James Connor followed that up with a 16-yard run, then JuJu Smith-Schuster followed that up with an 11-yard touchdown pass. With the extra point Drew Sample Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , the Steelers had just tied the game at 10 apiece with 3:50 left in the third quarter.The Steelers would extend their run to 13 unanswered points on the next drive. With the help of a fourth conversion, the Steelers made their way down to the Bengals’ 29-yard line where McCrane would make the 47-yard attempt to give the Steelers their first lead of the game with 8:35 left in the game, up 13-10.On the first play from scrimmage after the field goal, Joe Mixon nearly doubled his total yardage on the day with a 51-yard run. That was the only productive play of the drive, and a Cameron Heyward sack ensured that the drive would end in a field goal. Bullock converted the easy 32-yarder to tie the score at 13 all with 6:17 left in the game.Ben Roethlisberger was now unleashing his uncanny ability to play his best under the most pressure. He was completing passes all over the field and exploiting the Bengals’ franchise-worst defense to keep the chains moving. The Bengals stopped the Steelers on their own 24-yard line right at the two-minute warning. After the break, McCrane knocked a 35-yard kick through, so the Steelers took the lead again with 1:56 until game over.The Bengals would then go four-and-out to end the game and ultimately fell 16-13. Now Drew Sample Jersey 2019 , the season is over, and the focus turns to who will be head coach of the Bengals in 2019. Zac Taylor has to help fill out the rest of the Bengals’ coaching staff, and there are plenty of openings remaining. One of the most important vacancies was at offensive line coach, and the position is no longer vacant. Former Dolphins and Texas A&M offensive line coach Jim Turner will be hired by the Bengals per Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher. Turner coached alongside Taylor when Taylor was a graduate assistant at Texas A&M and later when they were both on the Dolphins’ staff. Of course Turner was in charge of Miami’s offensive line during the bullying/harassment scandal led by Richie Incognito against Jonathan Martin. Something Turner even participated in.After being fired by the Dolphins in 2014, Turner didn’t find another job until 2016 when he returned to Texas A&M as the offensive line coach. He didn’t even make it to the first game before he was suspended by the team for making sexist jokes at a football clinic for women.At this point there are undoubtedly fans who will only care about what he would be able to do for the Bengals on the field. Well you’re in luck because his offensive lines have never really been good. In 2013 the Dolphins had the 29th ranked rushing attack in the NFL, and Ryan Tannehill was sacked 58 times. It didn’t get much better as his offensive lines at Texas A&M haven’t been impressive the past few seasons either.What do you think though?

While the Detroit Lions offense hasn’t exactly been struggling through five games Christian Jones Jersey , it does seem to be missing a key component of most NFL offenses: a receiving threat among tight ends. Obviously, a tight end threat isn’t necessary, but Detroit has a team of players running routes every Sunday that either aren’t getting open or aren’t being seen. The Lions have only 15 tight end targets on the year, which is easily the fewest in the entire league. So it comes as little surprise that Detroit is hosting a tight end for a visit this week. Clive Walford is a former third-round pick in 2015 who has had a modest career thus far. In his three years with the Oakland Raiders, he pulled in 70 catches for 768 yards and six touchdowns. Most of that came in his first two seasons, as the Raiders changed offensive coordinators in 2017 and brought in Jared Cook, pushing Walford to a backup role before they cut him in the offseason. Walford spent subsequent training camp with the Jets, but he didn’t make the final 53-man roster.Player workouts happen every week Womens Michael Roberts Jersey , and there is no current indication the Lions will be signing him, but it’s notable that the Lions are looking at someone who has starting experience at one of the weakest positions on their roster. Kerryon Johnson has been wildly successful running the ball to the edges: The Detroit Free Press did a statistical dive on the Lions’ horrible run defense and came out with at least one potentially positive stats: Detroit has held 53 percent of opponents rushes to three yards or less. The Lions’ fantastic “Under the Helmet” series continued with the highly-entertaining Darius Slay: Justin Rogers’ Lions vs. Packers film breakdown reviews very bad days from Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Darius Slay and looks at the success of Detroit’s short-yardage running game. LeGarrette Blount is a 1-yard touchdown machine: Sports Illustrated has a story on Joe Cullen, the former Lions defensive line coach who infamously was found by police passed out, naked in his car in a Wendy’s parking lot. Cullen has apparently turned his life around since that dark moment and is now completely sober. A look at what NFL insiders thought of the Lions’ early draft picks."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions NotesDetroit Lions AnalysisDetroit Lions TransactionsDetroit Lions Game RecapsNFL DraftDetroit Lions AnalysisNFL executives weigh in on Detroit Lions’ 1st, 2nd-round picks New,143commentsA look at what NFL insiders thought of the Lions’ early draft picks. EDTShareTweetShareShareNFL executives weigh in on Detroit Lions’ 1st, 2nd-round picks Marco Garcia-USA TODAY SportsThanks to a war room video, we already know the Buffalo Bills think of the Detroit Lions’ selection of T.J. Hockenson with the eighth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. But what do other league executives think of Detroit’s haul last weekend?ESPN’s Mike Sando pulled opinions from various coaches Da'Shawn Hand Jersey , executives and draft evaluators around the league to evaluate the picks of all 32 teams. And it may surprise some to see that they were actually very complimentary towards Detroit’s first two selections. One NFL executive was apparently enamored with Hockenson and viewed him as high-and-above the rest of the tight end draft class.“It wasn’t even close for me personally between Hockenson and Fant,” the anonymous executive said. “I thought Hockenson was awesome. If we had been in position to trade up for him, I would have done it in a heartbeat and would not have blinked.”Of course, the question of value came into play here, too. One evaluator thinks you only draft a tight end that early if you’re getting an extremely unique talent. They don’t think Hockenson is that guy.“If you think Hockenson is Rob Gronkowski, great, but he is not that,” an evaluator said. “The only time you draft a tight end in the first round is if you’re getting an absolute freak who is athletically unique. Vernon Davis was that and he’s still playing. To use a top-10 pick Sylvester Williams Jersey White , that guy has to be Gronk.”While that debate will rage on, the Lions’ second-round pick Jahlani Tavai has drawn just as much varied opinions. The pick shocked a lot of media members, but it wasn’t at all surprising to those inside the NFL ranks. ”Hockenson was my favorite guy and then they got Tavai, who is perfect for them and someone we thought New England would take,” an evaluator said. “Tavai is a big, strong, tough linebacker who can play special teams. It makes sense he would end up there.”You can read reactions to all 32 teams here (ESPN Insider required).

The GM’s first pick defined his tenure http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authentic-quinten-rollins-jersey , for good and bad."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareShareFormer GM Ted Thompson goes into Packers Hall of FameGreen Bay Press Gazette-USA TODAY SportsFor the second time in team history, a general manager for the Green Bay Packers has entered the Packers Hall of Fame. This Saturday, Ted Thompson was inducted into the hallowed halls at Lambeau Field as one of the team’s greats.Thompson took the general manager job in 2005, taking over from coach/GM Mike Sherman. His first draft pick was unquestionably his best, as he selected Aaron Rodgers with the 24th selection that year. Thompson then hired Mike McCarthy as the Packers’ head coach the following season and helped McCarthy oversee the transition from Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers at quarterback in 2008.Under Thompson’s leadership, the Packers made four NFC Championship Games, winning once in 2010 to advance to Super Bowl XLV. There, the Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25. Practically the entire Packers’ roster on that team was drafted or signed by Thompson, with only a few notable exceptions; just two of the Packers’ starters in that game (Chad Clifton and Donald Driver) preceded Thompson. Making his mark as a scout and shrewd drafter, Thompson stuck closely to a draft-and-develop strategy when compiling his rosters, adding numerous undrafted free agents to the mix as well. However, he did make a few notable free agent signings to supplement his draft picks, mostly coming in the very early and late years of his tenure. Charles Woodson and Ryan Pickett were free agent acquisitions in 2006 and had lengthy Packers careers, with Woodson earning Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2009. Julius Peppers had a productive three-year Packers tenure as well after signing in 2014. However, the Packers did have spans of multiple years without significant free agent acquisitions.As a result of that approach, Thompson has become a polarizing figure in recent years among Packers fans. A handful of relatively unproductive drafts — particularly in 2015 — put a damper on the late years of Thompson’s tenure as the Packers struggled with depth over the past few seasons.In addition, Thompson has mentored numerous future NFL general managers coming up through the Packers’ personnel department. John Dorsey, John Schneider, Reggie McKenzie, and current Packers GM Brian Gutekunst all got their jobs after working for Thompson in the Packers front office.Currently Thompson still works for the Packers in an advisory role, which he took after stepping down from the GM post in early 2018.Congratulations to Ted, and APC wishes him well in the future. The Green Bay Packers finished the 2018 season 6-9-1, and there were numerous reasons for that result. Loads of injuries sapped the team of key players on both sides of the football; the coaching staff’s decision-making was often questionable; Aaron Rodgers’ injury seemed to derail him from his normal caliber of play. All of those issues can be illustrated at least in some form by looking at the team’s total snap counts for the season. Interestingly, the Packers did run more offensive plays than their opponents, but it was a difference of only ten snaps on the season. The injury issues are most clearly evident when looking at the snap breakdowns at the wide receiver, offensive line, defensive line, and cornerback groups. No defensive lineman or corner played more than 72% of the team’s total defensive snaps, while the team had just two receivers over 50%. Here’s a breakdown of all of the offensive and defensive snaps on the year, with a little extra analysis of some of the top special teamers.OFFENSE (1075 total plays)QuarterbacksAaron Rodgers 1013 (94.2%), DeShone Kizer 62 (5.8%)Kizer saw game action in just three contests this year, though he was active for each game. Those came in week one (a catastrophic outing in relief of Aaron Rodgers for about a quarter), week 14 (one kneel-down against the Falcons) and week 17 after Rodgers’ concussion. He finished the year with 20 completions on 42 attempts for 187 yards, no touchdowns, and two picks.Otherwise, Rodgers was healthy enough to play the remainder of the season, though he did not play up to his normal standards. His 7.4 yards per attempt was a bit higher than it was the past few years, but is still well off the 8.4 number he averaged from 2009 to 2014.Running BacksJamaal Williams 523, Aaron Jones 376, Ty Montgomery 150, FB Danny Vitale 19, Kapri Bibbs 17Although Williams led the runners in snaps, Jones was the team’s leader in carries (133) and yards (728) Womens Nick Perry Jersey , and he averaged 5.5 yards per carry for a second straight season. In addition, after a disappointing season as a receiver a year ago, Jones picked that part of his game up in 2018 with 26 catches for 206 yards, just one reception and four yards fewer than Williams. That all came in 12 games, as Jones missed the first two contests on suspension and the final two games with a knee injury.Of course, one common complaint among Packers fans was Mike McCarthy not giving Jones enough snaps or carries when he was on the field. Even when Jones did return from suspension, it took the head coach several games to truly commit to him as a featured back.Williams, for his part, had 121 carries for 464 yards, and like Jones his average of 3.8 was almost identical to that of his rookie year.Prior to his trade at midseason, Montgomery had done most of his damate as a receiver, picking up 170 yards on 15 catches compared to just 105 yards on 26 rushing attempts. Vitale and Bibbs were late-season additions.Wide ReceiversDavante Adams 954, Marquez Valdes-Scantling 692, Randall Cobb 466, Equanimeous St. Brown 358, Geronimo Allison 241, Jake Kumerow 136, J’Mon Moore 74, Allen Lazard 1Trevor Davis: 0 offensive snaps, 31 special teams snapsAside from missing the final game of the season, Adams was the Packers’ lone constant threat on offense, nearly breaking team records by putting up 111 catches for 1,386 yards. He also set a career-high in catch rate with receptions on 65.7% of his official targets and his 13 touchdowns made this his third straight season with double-digits.Allison should have been the #2 on the outside this year, and when he played he was very effective with 20 catches for 303 yards. That pace actually would have put him at about 970 yards over a full season, but he only played five games before being shut down for the year. That in turn led to MVS — and later St. Brown — taking on a much larger role in the offense than planned in year one .MVS’ 38 catches for 581 yards were the most for a Packers rookie since James Jones went 47-676 in 2007. Meanwhile, St. Brown led the team in yards per catch at 15.6 with 328 yards on 21 receptions. Moore, the first receiver drafted by the Packers in 2018, never really cracked the lineup.In the final year of his contract, Cobb had another disappointing and injury-marred season. He appeared to be rejuvenated in week one when he took a pass over the middle 75 yards for the game-winning touchdown over the Bears, but outside of that one play he had just 37 catches for 308 yards, a miserable 8.3 yards per catch. It’s tough to see him coming back next year unless he takes a very cheap deal.Davis returned from injured reserve for a pair of games, but never suited up on offense before going back to IR.Tight EndsJimmy Graham 795, Lance Kendricks 315, Marcedes Lewis 191, Robert Tonyan 67For all the hype about Graham’s signing in the offseason, he did exceed his numbers from 2017 in Seattle, at least in receptions (55) and yards (636). However, he was never a consistent threat in the red zone, where he was supposed to be a dominant presence, and he scored just twice all year.Kendricks was the Packers’ de facto fullback for much of the year, lining up largely as an H-back and move tight end and catching 19 passes. Lewis was inexplicably an afterthought, even given Graham’s and Kendricks’ issues as in-line blockers, while Tonyan never got much of a chance to build on his one big touchdown against the Seahawks.Offensive LinemenCorey Linsley 1075 Dean Lowry Jersey White , David Bakhtiari 1032, Lane Taylor 881, Bryan Bulaga 782, Byron Bell 527, Justin McCray 481, Jason Spriggs 291, Lucas Patrick 279, Alex Light 26, Adam Pankey 1For the second straight year, Linsley played every snap on offense for the Packers. His availability is his best trait, which is saying something considering he has also become one of the best centers in the NFL. Bakhtiari held up well for most of the year, dealing with a few nagging issues but mostly playing through them until the final 30 minutes of the season.Taylor and Bulaga each had their own injury issues in 2018, missing two games apiece. Meanwhile, the Packers had quite the rotation at right guard, with McCray starting the season there, Bell taking over for him, then back to McCray and eventually Patrick late in the season. Light got just a few snaps in the final game with a couple of players out of the lineup.DEFENSE (1064 total plays)Defensive LinemenKenny Clark 721, Dean Lowry 698, Mike Daniels 419, Tyler Lancaster 271, Montravius Adams 212, Muhammad Wilkerson 115, Fadol Brown 39, James Looney 19Oh what could have been with this unit. With Wilkerson going to IR early and Daniels landing there shortly after midseason, Clark was the one stalwart on the line until even he went to injured reserve late in the season. That led to a hefty workload for Dean Lowry all season and eventually got Tyler Lancaster valuable snaps late in the year as the latter showed that he deserves to have the inside track on a roster spot for next year. Adams, the final third-round pick by Ted Thompson, might be gone next year. Looney, a seventh-round pick, started the year on the practice squad and had little opportunity to show his talents.Outside LinebackersClay Matthews 756, Kyler Fackrell 623, Reggie Gilbert 486, Nick Perry 301Somehow, the Packers made it through all of 2018 by playing just four edge rushers; however, Perry likely played his way off the team due to injury and ineffectiveness. The sack numbers here are startling, too; Fackrell put up 10.5 to lead the team, while Matthews had just 3.5 sacks in more than a hundred more snaps. Meanwhile, Perry had 1.5 and Gilbert posted just 2.5 sacks. This group needs an infusion of talent right away.Inside LinebackersBlake Martinez 1049, Antonio Morrison 299, Oren Burks 122, Korey Toomer 12, James Crawford 1Martinez was once again an iron man, playing nearly every snap all season long. The team rotated a handful of safeties through at the Nitro linebacker spot, however http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authentic-jake-ryan-jersey , as Oren Burks’ shoulder injury kept him from making the impact that the team presumably hoped he would. Between Jermaine Whitehead, Josh Jones, and Eddie Pleasant, Mike Pettine continued the trend of using a safety there, though Morrison did provide some good, aggressive play against the run when he was in the lineup.Hopefully Burks can come into 2019 healthy and with a better grasp of the defense so he can make a bigger impact in his second season.SafetiesTramon Williams 1059, Kentrell Brice 646, Josh Jones 501, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix 459, Jermaine Whitehead 221, Ibraheim Campbell 112, Eddie Pleasant 86, Raven Greene 43After starting the season at cornerback, Williams moved to safety following the Packers’ trade of Clinton-Dix to Washington and missed just a few snaps all season long. His discipline and versatility made him an essential part of a secondary that struggled with injuries all year long. Brice probably played his way out of Green Bay in his third season, struggling mightily in coverage after a good performance in week one.As mentioned above, Jones split time between safety and Nitro linebacker, showing that his best position still is in the box. Expect the Packers to add some talent here both in free agency and in the draft in 2019. Greene and Campbell both showed enough to bring them back for another go in training camp next season, however.CornerbacksJaire Alexander 760, Josh Jackson 718, Bashaud Breeland 329, Kevin King 304, Tony Brown 287, Davon House 29, Will Redmond 4The Packers’ top draft pick, Alexander, showed why he was worthy of a top-20 selection much of the season, though he had some growing pains and injury issues as well. When fully healthy, he should have the ability to be a lock-down cornerback. Jackson was available all year long, playing 16 games, but he showed the issues in man coverage that kept teams away from him until the middle of round two. He just doesn’t yet have the feel for man coverage, and he’s too handsy, taking several penalties throughout the year.SPECIAL TEAMS LEADERS (471 total)James Crawford 333 (70.7%), Antonio Morrison 266 (56.5%), Oren Burks 254 (53.9%), Kyler Fackrell 243 (51.6%), Reggie Gilbert 226 (48.0%)Robert Tonyan 191 (40.6%), Josh Jackson 190 (40.3%), Tony Brown 178 (37.8%), Josh Jones 169 (35.9%)The Packers got plenty of contributions from their reserves on special teams. Despite arguments that there was a revolving door of personnel on these units, that’s true only to an extent. The medium-sized bodies — linebackers and tight ends — were quite consistent throughout the season, while the team got regular contributions from a handful of defensive backs as gunners on coverage teams.This is an even greater indictment of Ron Zook as special teams coordinator, as his units remained ineffective despite having much of their core intact throughout the 2018 campaign.

It’s now official — all three of the defensive linemen who started in week one for the Green Bay Packers will end the season on injured reserve. After Muhammad Wilkerson’s and Mike Daniels’ seasons ended earlier this fall Youth Elgton Jenkins Jersey , Kenny Clark is now headed to injured reserve. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the news, which has not yet been confirmed by the Packers.Clark suffered an elbow injury in the team’s week 14 victory over the Atlanta Falcons and was inactive on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. It seems possible that he may have been able to play down the stretch if the Packers were still alive in the playoff race, but with nothing to play for the team has apparently elected to shut him down for the final two games.In his third NFL season, Clark emerged as the star on the Packers’ line White Elgton Jenkins Jersey , sustaining his late-season success from 2017. He recorded 4.5 sacks over the final five games last year, then kept that success going with six sacks this season in 13 games of action. He also forced one fumble and recovered two more this year.Clark was named as a first alternate for the Pro Bowl on Tuesday evening, but this shutdown likely means that he will not make the team even if an alternate is needed. Clark’s four-year rookie contract runs through 2019, but it is a sure bet that the Packers will execute their team option for a fifth season in 2020 given his exceptional play.With Clark’s season over Dexter Williams Green Bay Packers Jersey , the Packers will suit up Dean Lowry, Tyler Lancaster, Montravius Adams, and Fadol Brown in the final two games of the season. After leading his team to a win in the Holiday Bowl Dexter Williams Jersey 2019 , Northwestern University head coach Pat Fitzgerald said that he’s “not going anywhere” and that the school will be his “home forever.”That was notable because of chatter that the Packers were interested in Fitzgerald for their head coaching vacancy. Much of that chatter focused on the fact that Packers president/CEO Mark Murphy was the athletic director at Northwestern when Fitzgerald was hired and it seems Fitzgerald’s postgame comments haven’t been taken as the final word in Green Bay.The reports that the Packers still hope to talk to Fitzgerald about the job. Per the report, there’s a chance Murphy and Fitzgerald could speak informally this week in order to “gauge whether there鈥檚 interest to move forward with an interview.”The Packers have already interviewed former NFL head coaches Jim Caldwell and Chuck Pagano and have set up interviews with Josh McDaniels, Brian Flores and Dan Campbell since the end of the regular season.

Bengals go back and forth with Falcons Womens Randy Bullock Jersey , win a 37-36 thriller in Atlanta Everyone knew that this game would be high scoring, but no one could have imagined the actual result. After a combined 52 points and zero punts in the first half, the Bengals barely edged out the Falcons 37-36 in the last seconds of the game.A.J. Green was a question mark all week because of a groin injury sustained last week against the Panthers, but Green showed up and looked one-hundred percent healthy. Playing in Atlanta for the first time in his professional career, he had 78 yards on four receptions and the go-ahead touchdown in front of his friends and family. But Tyler Boyd was the team’s leading receiver with 101 yards on 11 catches, and many of those came on third down.Andy Dalton also had a productive day, finishing with 337 yards and three touchdowns. His one interception was off a drop from Tyler Kroft.Giovani Bernard filled in nicely for Joe Mixon, getting 89 total yards on 17 touches with two rushing touchdowns.The news wasn’t all good for the offense, however. Tyler Eifert looked like he was back to his 2015 self with four catches for 38 yards and a touchdown. But he suffered an ugly lower leg injury and had to be carted off the field.The Bengals defense got torched by the Falcons’ offense, as Julio Jones and Mohammed Sanu both received for over 100 yards, while Calvin Ridley added 54 yards and two touchdowns. Matt Ryan passed for 353 yards and two touchdowns to help the Falcons score 36 points.The Falcons started the game with a 53-yard kick return and set up their first drive at midfield at midfield. The Bengals could not get off the field on third down, so the Falcons drove 50 yards thanks to two third down conversions. From the seven-yard line, rookie running back Ito Smith broke into the end zone to finish off the short drive. Matt Bryant’s extra point was good, and the Falcons took an early lead, 7-0 with 10:27 left in the first quarter.Alex Erickson set up the Bengals with a good kick return to the 33-yard line. Despite a false start penalty from Bobby Hart on third down, the Bengals got into Falcons territory thanks to a 38-yard pass to Green. Tyler Eifert finished off the drive with a 15-yard pass from Andy Dalton in the back of the end zone. Eifert’s first touchdown since 2015 and Randy Bullock converted the point after. The Bengals weren’t behind very long, and had tied the score at seven with 7:23 left in the quarter.Despite pinning the Flacons inside their own 10-yard line on the ensuing kickoff Jordan Evans Jersey , the Falcons made their way down to the Bengals’ 44-yard line. The Bengals finally got a third down stop, but the Falcons decided to roll the dice on 4th-and-5. Geno Atkins made them regret that decision and got the sack on Matt Ryan to set up the Bengals at their own 49-yard line. An offsides call on prior to the Bengals’ first snap meant that they started the drive in Falcon’s territory.Giovani Bernard took a 17-yard screen deep into Atlanta territory, which set up his 10-yard touchdown run two plays later. Dalton handed the ball off to Bernard, who ran around the outside and made one defender miss before he jogged into the end zone. The Bengals capitalized on the short field and after Bullock’s extra point, the Bengals took their first lead of the game with 12 seconds left in the first quarter.Matt Ryan and Ito Smith kept chipping away at the Bengals defense on the next drive until the Falcons got to the Bengals’ 17-yard line. The Bengals left tight end Logan Paulsen wide open, and Ryan delivered an easy pass for a touchdown. With the extra point, the Falcons had tied the game 14-14 with 11:03 left in the second quarter.On the next drive, Mark Walton caught his first reception of the year and set the Bengals up to strike with his 24-yard screen. John Ross made a big play, topping his longest catch this year by 30 yards, but it came at a cost. Ross burned the defenders in the secondary and secured the wide-open catch, but limped into the end zone. Bullock’s extra point was good with 8:06 to go in the second half with the Bengals leading 21-14.Evidently, Ross was fine after the play and finished the game.On the next drive, former Bengals Mohamed Sanu had a huge catch in his first game against Cincinnati. Sanu was left wide open on a play-action pass and caught a 36-yard pass to get the Falcons into the red zone. Calvin Ridley grabbed his first score of the game from 11 yards out, as the rookie receiver helped tie the game. Bryant’s extra point with 2:55 until halftime leveled the score at 21.With less than three minutes to try and get some more points before halftime, the Bengals made their way downfield thanks to two Falcons penalties. Bernard had another screen passfor 14 yards to get the Bengals to the Falcon’s one-yard line. Bernard ran behind Sam Hubbard from his familiar fullback position on the next play, and Bernard pounded the ball into the end zone from the one-yard line. Bullock converted the extra point and the Bengals had 48 seconds to protect their 28-21 lead before halftime.48 seconds was plenty of time for the Falcons with two timeouts, and they put the pressure on the Bengals’ defense right before halftime. The Falcons got close enough for the ageless Byant to kick a 55-yard field goal to cut the Bengals lead to four as time expired. Going into halftime Vincent Rey Jersey , the Bengals were holding onto a 28-24 lead.The first half was a total shootout, as the Bengals scored four touchdowns on all four of their possessions. The only drives that didn’t end in touchdowns were the turnover on downs early in the first quarter and the field goal as time expired in the second.Everything seemed to go wrong for the Bengals in the second half.First, Eifert’s day (and probably season) ended with a nasty ankle injury on a second down play and had to be carted off the field. Dalton was sacked on the next play and the punt team came out for the first time in the game. But the punt was blocked, so the Falcons set up at the Bengals’ eight-yard line.But the veterans on the defensive line came up big, as two consecutive sacks from Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap stopped the Falcons in their tracks, so the Falcons had to settle for a 28-yard field goal from Matt Bryant after losing two yards on the drive. The Bengals held on to their lead, up 28-27 with 11:22 left in the third quarter.The Bengals offense finally got going later on in the third quarter after punting a drive earlier. Tyler Boyd has continued to play at his best this year, and helped the Bengals move the sticks on a third and long. But the Bengals didn’t sustain their momentum very long, as Dalton’s pass to Tyler Kroft landed in the arms of Falcon’s safety Damontae Kazee, who returned the ball to his own 46-yard line. The Bengals defense did a great job of putting pressure on Matt Ryan, but a Carl Lawson sack was wiped out by a roughing the passer penalty (which was a borderline call at best). The Falcons capitalized on the 15-yard penalty by hitting Ridley in stride for a 30-yard touchdown. The Falcons went for two points, but came up inches short. With 14:25, the Bengals now trailed 33-28 with 14:25 remaining in the game.Alex Erickson returned the ensuing kickoff to his own 48-yard line. Green had a monster catch in the end zone, but was wiped out by a questionable hands-to-the-face call on Bobby Hart. After the penalty was assessed, the Bengals couldn’t get back to the end zone and Dalton was sacked on third-and-five from the Falcons’ nine-yard line. The play was initially rule a fumble, which would have been a crushing result, but the giveaway was overturned after an official review. Bullock kicked a 36-yard field goal to cut into the Falcon’s lead Womens Tyler Boyd Jersey , but the Bengals still led 33-31 with 8:19 left in the game.On the next drive, Sanu started things off with a 32-yard reception to get past midfield. The Bengals forced a third-and-13, but tight end Austin Hooper took a short pass and ran right through the middle of the defense to get to the Bengals’ 27-yard line. Thanks to a sack from Lawson that actually stood, the Bengals’ stopped the Falcons on the 20-yard line, setting up third-and-goal. Despite going 11 for 13 on third down conversions until that point, the Bengals forced a 32-yard field goal from Bryant. The Bengals keeping the Falcons to a field goal was huge, because the Bengals still had 4:15 left on the clock with two time outs and only trailed by one score, down 36-31.Dalton leaned heavily on Boyd on the next possession, going to him four times for 40 yards, two of those times on fourth down. Green finished off the drive with a diving catch in the end zone from 12 yards out to give the Bengals a one-point lead.The Bengals went for two, but missed, giving the Falcons seven seconds to make up a 37-36 deficit.The final score of 37-36 would hold as the Bengals improved to 3-1 on the season, taking a firm hold of first place in the AFC North. The Falcons dropped to 1-3, dropping two in a row despite scoring 73 points in their last two games. The Bengals will go home to face the 3-1 Dolphins in Week 5. CINCINNATI (AP) — An entire month had come and gone without even one win, leaving the Bengals in their deepest drought since 2010.Joe Mixon provided just enough to give the sparse crowd a reason to cheer at the end of their final home game.Mixon ran for 129 yards and a pair of touchdowns Sunday, and Cincinnati held on for a 30-16 victory over the Oakland Raiders that ended one of their longest losing streaks under coach Marvin Lewis, but couldn’t prevent the Bengals from being eliminated from playoff contention for the third straight season.The Bengals (6-8) had dropped five straight — their third-worst slump during Lewis’ 16 seasons — before finding a team struggling as much as them.Mixon’s 15-yard touchdown with 4:04 left capped his second straight 100-yard game and clinched the Bengals’ first win since October.Yes Cordy Glenn Jersey White , October.“I feel like it’s been a loooooong time since we were able to do that,” Mixon said.Cincinnati distributed 44,568 tickets for its final home game. The Bengals had the second-smallest season attendance in Paul Brown Stadium’s 19 seasons as fans showed frustration with another disappointing season under Lewis.The Steelers’ 17-10 win over the Patriots later Sunday ended the Bengals’ minuscule chances of winning the AFC North.In a few weeks, Cincinnati will be waiting to see whether Lewis is around for another year or whether the small crowds will prompt owner Mike Brown to make significant changes. The slump-busting win provided a temporary relief.“I’ve never dealt with losing my whole life, even back to grade school,” said rookie defensive end Sam Hubbard, who had two sacks and forced a fumble. “To come out with a win really feels great.”The Raiders (3-11) are already in next-year mode. They fired general manager Reggie McKenzie on Monday and had little on the line against the Bengals.Oakland was trying to win two in a row for the first time this season, and Derek Carr was closing in on a club record for avoiding interceptions. Carr got his record, but the sloppy Raiders lost again with a nondescript performance.“I ain’t got much to talk about, guys,” tight end Jared Cook said.The Raiders’ offensive line has been depleted by injuries. They struggled to get anything going consistently, managing 297 total yards.“This stings,” coach Jon Gruden said. “It’s hard to lose. It’s a hard situation with a lot of the moving parts that we have.”With Mixon the focal point, the Bengals put together their biggest first half since their previous victory, 37-34 over Tampa Bay on Oct. 28. Lewis went for it twice on fourth down and produced a pair of touchdown drives. Mixon surged into the end zone on fourth down from the 1-yard line for a 14-0 lead in the second quarter.Jeff Driskel struggled in his third start replacing the injured Andy Dalton, repeatedly overthrowing receivers. He had a 7-yard touchdown to Tyler Boyd for Cincinnati’s first score, but Driskel finished 14 of 33 for 130 yards with an interception.Carr was 21 of 38 for 263 yards and a touchdown and no interceptions for the ninth straight game. With his 14th pass http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-tyler-eifert-jersey , Carr broke Rich Gannon’s club record for the longest stretch without throwing an interception — 277 in 2001. He was lucky to get that far: Bengals safety Shawn Williams dropped a ball thrown directly to him on Oakland’s first possession.BOYD HITS 1,000Boyd reached 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career before hurting his right knee late in the first half. He didn’t return. Afterward, he said the injury isn’t serious. With A.J. Green out for the season with a toe injury, Boyd is the leading receiver with 1,028 yards on 76 catches.“That’s something I wanted to accomplish since got to the NFL,” Boyd said. “Now that I’ve done it, it’s on to the next one. I think have to think about, let it marinate.”MIXON ALMOST THEREMixon’s big game left him 5 yards shy of 1,000 for the first time in his two-year career.SPIKEDIn a play that symbolized the Raiders’ day, Carr spiked the ball at midfield trying to stop the clock as the first half wound down, but took too long and there was no time left when the ball hit the ground.INJURIESRaiders: LG Kelechi Osemele was out for the second straight game with a toe injury, and RG Gabe Jackson was inactive with an elbow injury. CB Gareon Conley got a concussion.Bengals: LB Vontaze Burfict missed his second straight game with a concussion.UP NEXTRaiders host Denver on Monday night. They lost at Denver 20-19 in the second game of the season.Bengals play at Cleveland on Sunday. The Browns won at Paul Brown Stadium 35-20 on Nov. 25.

It looks like the Lions are moving on from Kerry Hyder."As the Detroit Lions try to figure out what they plan on doing at the edge defender position—especially in light of three four defensive ends receiving the franchise tag this week—it has become clear that one player will not be a primary part of their plans. On Monday afternoon Sam Martin Jersey , NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that the Lions will not be tendering Kerry Hyder Jr. a restricted free agency deal:Hyder was one of two restricted free agents the Lions had. The other, Romeo Okwara, agreed to a two-year deal with the Lions already. Once that happened, the writing was pretty much on the wall for Hyder, who only played in a total of 153 snaps in 2018, despite the injury to Ezekiel Ansah.Although Hyder could theoretically come back, it appears he’s now headed for unrestricted free agency when the new league year starts on March 13. It’s a disappointing end to Hyder’s career in Detroit, after the defensive end continually fought against the odds to make an impact with Detroit. In 2016 Calvin Johnson Jersey , Hyder fought his way onto the roster and even notched 8.0 sacks.However, after tearing his achilles in the 2017 preseason and due to the Lions undergoing a complete defensive scheme change, it was time for both sides to move on. Hyder will have to continue his underdog story elsewhere, and we wish Hyder the best and hope that he can thrive elsewhere. Week 7 is almost done, which means we’ve nearly hit the halfway point in the 2018 NFL season. That’s terrifying to say, considering it feels like the season just started, and no one wants to talk about the long void from football getting nearer everyday.So let’s not talk about it, and Womens Zach Zenner Jersey , instead, talk about the NFC showdown on “Monday Night Football” this week. The Atlanta Falcons are looking to save their season after a horrible 1-4 start. They took the first step last week, stealing a divisional game away from the Buccaneers, but their work is far from done. With Matt Ryan and a star-studded offense, they’re the kind of team that has a chance every week, but their defense is seriously hindering them in a competitive division right now.Contrast that with the New York Giants, who are every bit as dysfunctional as ever. Odell Beckham Jr. and the head coach are trading snipes at each other, and the team is just continuing to lose. Outside of Saquon Barkley Kenny Golladay Jersey White , there just isn’t a lot of hope for this team on the horizon, and their 2018 season is basically already over at 1-5. So how will two desperate teams look facing off against each other in primetime football? Let’s watch and find out.Location: Mercedes-Benz Stadium—Atlanta, GAGame time: Monday, October 22, 2018 | 8:15 p.m. ETTV channel: ESPN Online Stream/Replay: Watch ESPN, NFL Gamepass

Panthers open as favorite over Bengals in Week 3 The Bengals are off to a fast start at 2-0 Carlos Dunlap Jersey , but they’re about to endure a major two-game road trip that will test just how good they really are.Cincinnati will be on the road to face the Panthers in Week 3, followed by the Falcons in Week 4. Both teams are now 1-1 following Atlanta’s home win over Carolina in Week 2. The Panthers nearly rallied from a 14-point deficit, but the home team held on for a 31-24 win.The Panthers’ lone win was a Week 1 defensive struggle against the Cowboys, which saw the home team win 16-8. Speaking of, winning in Carolina is hard to accomplish, as the Panthers have won seven of their last nine home games and are 18-6 at home since 2015. That’s probably a big reason why the Bengals, who have lost 11 of their last 16 road games, are going to be underdogs in Week 3. Depending on what sportsbook you use, the Bengals are between a 3-4 point underdog right now. That’s also assuming Joe Mixon is out after he underwent arthroscopic surgery and is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.Vontaze Burfict is also set to serve his third game of a four-game ban. If both Mixon and Burfict are part of this Bengals team in Week 3 Geno Atkins Jersey , I think we may actually see Cincinnati favored. As it stands, the Bengals will rely on guys like Giovani Bernard and Jordan Evans to help make up for those losses. That’s going to prove very difficult against a Panthers defense that dominates in the trenches and runs the ball very well. What’s crazy is the Bengals are 2-0 after being underdogs in each of their first two games, and they’ll almost certainly be an underdog at Atlanta in Week 4. That means the Bengals will be one of the rare teams to be an underdog in each of their four games, but at worst, they’ll come out of it with two wins.The way this team is playing, I expect them to get one more between Carolina and Atlanta. Despite a rocky start to his career, Webb did some good things in 2018 and could build on them in Cincinnati"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBAFilm Room: B.W. Webb shows potential as slot cornerNew,34commentsDespite a rocky start to his career, Webb did some good things in 2018 and could build on them in CincinnatiEDTShareTweetShareShareFilm Room: B.W. Webb shows potential as slot cornerRobert Deutsch-USA TODAY SportsB.W. Webb has been a bit of a journeyman in the NFL. He was a fourth round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 2013 and the Bengals are now his 8th NFL team. He didn’t even play a game in 2017 Michael Jordan Jersey 2019 , after being cut by the Bears in September. William Jackson and Dre Kirkpatrick aren’t going anywhere, so Webb was presumably brought in to replace Darqueze Dennard in the slot, though Dennard was also brought back. While Webb does have experience playing this position, 2018 was his best season as a pro, and he played mostly outside corner. Still, he did spend a few weeks of 2018 playing primarily slot corner and one would assume that former Giants defensive backs coach and new Bengals defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo has a good beat on what Webb can do and how he will fit in the defensive system. Here is a look at Webb playing in the slot under coach Anarumo in 2018.In the first clip, Webb is responsible for the flat. The Eagles and in a bunch and there is no immediate threat to the Webb’s zone. He drops off and focuses on reading the backfield. When running back Wendell Smallwood comes out of the backfield and releases into the flat, Webb breaks on his route and removes the option. This is a great example of an aggressive match zone defense and excellent execution by Webb.In the next clip the Eagles motion into a bunch look on 3rd and 4. They run the “star” concept which is common in bunch and designed to get the defense to chase routes they shouldn’t or pick themselves. Webb shows good discipline and understanding of the defense by dropping straight back and realizing that he is responsible for the route that is directly in front of him. The ball is completed to tight end Zach Ertz, but Webb breaks and makes the tackle for a 3-yard gain; forcing a punt.Webb does an excellent job in man coverage against Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu here. He starts with inside leverage and maintains position inside of Sanu throughout the route. Notice how at the 31-yard-line Sanu slows down and Webb does not fly by him? This is because Webb has his eyes on Sanu’s hips. If you watch closely Michael Jordan Jersey Womens , you can see Sanu lower his hips. This indicates a cut and good man defenders focus on these kinds of keys to anticipate breaks. In this case however, it Sanu is simply trying to make Webb think he is cutting. Webb honors the maneuver, but quickly closes the gap between him and Sanu as the receiver continues up field. Webb demonstrates a keen understanding of man coverage.This is a similar look against Ertz. The tight end stems to the outside, then looks like he want to cut inside. Webb cuts him off and even takes on a good shot from the much bigger Ertz. Webb maintains position inside and underneath him throughout the route. It is a bit concerning that he only had one interception all season. Even worse, it was a gimme that came shortly after he dropped a would-be interception.Webb may be a temporary solution, and the long term plan may be to use Darius Phillips or Davontae Harris in this role, but he definitely has some skills as a slot corner. He is particularly adept at covering bigger slots and high ends.
