Why the Bears believe they can be more than a top 10 defense in 2018

Posted on by

Vic Fangio is entering his fourth year as the Bears’ defensive coordinator, and does so with a certain level of continuity he hasn’t had in years past. To wit: The 2017 Bears had to replace five of their top 20 snap-getters from 2016; that number, in practice, was actually six after Jerrell Freeman suffered a season-ending injury against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1.

The 2018 Bears will have to replace five of their 20 most-used players from 2017, to be fair, but consider where each of those players ranked in terms of defensive snaps received the previous year: 2017 players to replace in 2018: Christian Jones (8th), Mitch Unrein (13th), Pernell McPhee (14th), Lamarr Houston (17th), Quintin Demps (20th) 2016 players to replace in 2017: Tracy Porter (1st), Jerrell Freeman (4th), Harold Jones-Quartey (5th), Cornelius Washington (14th), Jacoby Glenn (18th), Demontre Hurst (19th) The point being this: There’s far more year-to-year consistency on the top end of Fangio’s current defense than he had a year ago.

Hamilton fans chanted Manziel’s name Friday night as Tiger-Cats starter Jeremiah Masoli played longer than expected in the CFL exhibition game against Toronto.

Manziel entered with 3:38 remaining in the second quarter, via Mike Rodak of ESPN, and the backup quarterback completed 9 of 12 passes for 80 yards. Manziel played five possessions.

Masoli played seven possessions, throwing for 56 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. But Hamilton coach June Jones already has declared that Masoli absolutely will start the regular-season opener June 16.

Manziel played two Spring League games in April before deciding to sign with the Tiger-Cats, where he will try to resurrect his career. A first-round pick of the Browns in 2014, the former Heisman Trophy winner went 2-6 with seven interceptions and seven touchdowns in two NFL seasons.

Luck wouldn’t let another take the helm, anyway. He’s a selfless teammate but shares control of his rehab with nobody, probably why Colts owner Jim Irsay dropped several references last year to the four inches between (Luck’s) ears when Luck’s rehab was going slowly. Yes sir, Reich is right: Nobody else will steer this ship.

But Luck prefers a race car analogy.

Why can’t these 7 ex-Giants find new teams?

Whereas most 3-4 defenses put two-gap responsibilities on defensive linemen requiring the discipline to sit back and read which two offensive linemen a running back will try to split Bettcher’s system offers more one-gap responsibility. That means more 1-on-1 battles.

Tomlinson was limited to individual drills during the pre-draft three-day minicamp I was just getting back into the groove of things,he said when asked for an explanation but is participating in 11-on-11 drills during organized team activities.

While the former second-round draft pick is excited to be back in a system that reminds him of coach Nick Saban’s 3-4 attacking defense in college, he also is wary of a sophomore slump. How does he prevent it?

While there might have been some concern from outside observers surrounding a dip of production when compared to his rookie season, Rankins has a simple message to doubters.

Get some film and watch it, Rankins said emphatically. I think what I do speaks for itself. I think I’m versatile. I can rush the passer, I can stop the run, I can do whatever the defense needs me to do. I’ll always carry that with me in and out of every season, and my mindset won’t change.

With the 6-foot-2, 305-pound Rankins in the middle, the Saints have a player capable of commanding blockers, a scenario that frees up the edge rushers, such as defensive end Cameron Jordan.

Rankins can also affect the quarterback outside of a sack, as he finished tied for second with defensive end Alex Okafor on the Saints defense with nine quarterback hits in 2017.

Given his knack for causing havoc outside of what shows up on a stat sheet, there is plenty of like about Rankins in 2018.

The Saints selected defensive end Marcus Davenport in the first round (14th overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft. And with Davenport, Jordan and Okafor creating pressure from the outside, Rankins should Womens Tony Gonzalez Jersey see more action from his natural position inside, a move he fully embraces.

Splish, splash, Browns coach Jackson takes a Lake Erie bath

Posted on by

Hue Jackson surfaced from the chilly water soaked and smiling before he raised both arms in triumph.

Cleveland’s coach hasn’t had many moments to celebrate during two miserable seasons with the Browns, so this felt like a victory over the dreaded Steelers.

A very wet, wonderful win.

Jackson took a dive into Lake Erie on Friday , delivering on a promise with a dip he hopes can help cleanse the bumbling Browns, who have gone 1-31 in two seasons with Jackson in charge.

With a TV news helicopter hovering over Huntington Beach, and an NFL Films crew recording his every move on land and sea, Jackson spent several minutes in the unusually warm 72-degree water.

After returning to shore, Jackson expressed relief to have it behind him.

This was a chance to wash off the filth from two painful, forgettable seasons.

They trust me to do that, Fitzpatrick said. They’re not putting too much on me, but they know they can put a lot on me.

Pro Bowler Reshad Jones is certain to start at one safety spot, and veteran safety T.J. McDonald also returns after starting the final eight games last season. Defensive coordinator Matt Burke may decide to play both along with Fitzpatrick at times, and June is a time for experimenting.

General manager Chris Grier has compared Fitzpatrick to a Swiss army knife because of his versatility. And wherever Fitzpatrick lines up, he’s making his presence felt.

He is flying around at practice, quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. He plays aggressive and plays fast, and that’s what you want to see out of a DB.

Fitzpatrick played for Nick Saban at Alabama, which may be why he hasn’t found the demands of the NFL too daunting so far. In fact, the coaching styles of Saban and Gase are similar, he said.

They’re both very passionate coaches, Fitzpatrick said. They’re both real hands-on. The only difference is coach Saban yells a bit more.

The Jaguars tripled down on Sacksonville with Bryan, Harrison and Jacobs.

Elite Kids Patrick Sharp Jersey In hindsight, D’Antoni wishes it had been a sign of things to come with the Suns.

Here’s what we do. We do it well, we win. We don’t, we lose. But they’re not stopping it. Nobody’s stopping it.

Chris Ballard got busy stockpiling talent for Frank Reich after a quiet free-agency period. Nelson and Smith will start and improve both pass protection and run blocking. Hines and Wilkins give the Colts a nice committee with Marlon Mack that can do a little but of everything. Fountain and Cain can emerge as big-play guys outside for Andrew Luck. At the same time, the Colts loaded up their new-look base 4-3 for Matt Eberflus. It was the transitional draft Indy needed.

Thomas is a good kid to groom as a receiver behind Greg Olsen. It was also good that the Panthers got some situational pass rush in Haynes.

The Falcons didn’t get an inside-outside pass-rusher or extra tight end help. But they did jump on a great offensive value in Ridley to support Julio Jones, and they got some good defensive depth for Dan Quinn. Solid also describes this NFC South team haul.

Raiders to Vegas Golden Knights: ‘Just Win Baby’

When the Vegas Golden Knights take the ice for Game 1 of their Stanley Cup Final against the Washington Capitals on Monday, they’ll have their soon-to-be professional sports brethren standing in their corner.

However, Dalton has won a grand total of zero playoff games, and in each of the past two years Cincinnati has missed the postseason. Those failings (and Dalton’s robust salary) have led many to question whether The Red Rifle should remain the Bengals’ starter.

In 2018 at least, Dalton’s the unquestioned No. 1. His success (or failure) in 2018 will depend largely on one thing. It isn’t the wide receiver corps, led by the annually awesome A.J. Green. Or the Womens Thaddeus Young Jersey ground game, keyed by second-year pro Joe Mixon.

It’s the revamped offensive line that will determine the day. Dalton is a different quarterback in a clean pocket as opposed to with guys in his face. If newcomers Cordy Glenn and Billy Price perform up to expectations, the Bengals will contend in the AFC North.

If they don’t and that line is a sieve again, it’s going to be a long year for Dalton and the Bengals.
Authentic Womens Martellus Bennett Jersey
At the opposite end of that spectrum, you have the winless Cleveland Browns, a team that’s been looking for a quarterback for two decades. The team hopes it has that quarterback in Baker Mayfield, but the first overall pick in this year’s draft more likely than not won’t be the Browns’ starter in Week 1.

With OTAs well underway and training camp set to kick off in mid-July, many fans are curious what to expect from their favorite team’s quarterback, whether it’s stars like Wentz, Brady and Drew Brees or newcomers like Mayfield and Josh Allen.

Stafford has piled up at least 4,200 passing yards and 20 touchdown passes in seven consecutive seasons. He’s topped 4,500 passing yards three times, 5,000 yards once and has three straight seasons with a passer rating of at least 93.3.

James Neal Mens Jersey Stafford’s career touchdown-to-interception ratio is plus-98.

Add in a pair of excellent pass-catchers at Stafford’s disposal in Golden Tate and Marvin Jones Jr. (and promising youngster Kenny Golladay), and you have the makings of one of the league’s more prolific passing attacks in 2018.

Peter King, MMQB leaving Sports Illustrated for NBC Sports, ‘Football Night in America’

Posted on by

Game Youth Jim Palmer Jersey Big sports media news continued to drop Thursday as Peter King, the dean of NFL sportswriters, jumped to NBC Sports from Sports Illustrated.
Adidas NHL Men's Gustav Olofsson Green Home Premier Jersey - #23 Minnesota Wild
Mitchell Marner Elite Jersey Beginning in July, King will exclusively write his Monday Morning Quarterback column for NBCSports.com. He’ll appear on NBC’s Football Night Cole Beasley”>http://www.officialcowboyslockerroom.com/elite-cole-beasley-jersey”>Cole Beasley Jersey in America Sunday night pregame show and NBC Sports Radio’s PFT Live with Mike Florio.

As one of the best NFL reporters in history, Peter’s information, storytelling, and analysis make us better across the board,Sam Flood, executive producer and president, production, for NBC Sports and NBCSN, said in a statement. With Peter expanding his NBC Sports presence from Football Night to PFT Live and digital, football fans are the big winners.

I just felt it was time to move on from the 24/7-ness of football coverage and try something a little bit different. My 29 years at Sports Illustrated have been, collectively, a dream come true. I’ll always be grateful to Mark Mulvoy for hiring a green 31-year-old kid in 1989, just as I’m grateful to my current boss, Chris Stone, for the opportunities and support he’s given me in recent years. For three decades, I’ve had the job of a lifetime in the sports media business, and I will be forever grateful to SI. I leave at the end of May with immense gratitude to my editors over the years and to my staff at The MMQB since 2013. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart.

The King announcement capped a busy day of sports media changes. ESPN announced it was hiring Jason Witten, who is retiring from the Cowboys, to succeed the departed Jon Gruden as color analyst for Monday Night Football. CBS Sports announced the hiring of ex-Cardinals coach Bruce Arians as an NFL game analyst. Arians will work with Greg Gumbel and Trent Green.

Witten was selected in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Cowboys. He never changed teams, as he spent all 15 years of his NFL career in Dallas.

It brings a certainty of pride and honor, the type of certainty that comes once in a lifetime, to be a Dallas Cowboy,Witten said at his press conference. Many times over the years I’d wake up and jump out of bed and catch myself saying ‘how lucky am I’ to be able to play the game of football for the Dallas Cowboys.

Witten caught 1,152 passes for 12,448 yards and 68 touchdowns in his career, making 11 Pro Bowls. He said at his press conference that he hopes he’s remembered as a role model, both on and off the field.

Saints sign Tre’Quan Smith, wrap up draft class

Adidas NHL Youth Tiger Williams Red Alternate Authentic Jersey - #22 Toronto Maple Leafs
Via Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Saints have signed third-rounder Tre’Quan Smith, wrapping up their entire draft class.

Smith, a wide receiver from Central Florida, impressed in early workouts.

He’s a speed receiver in an offense that is built for them, though the presence of a stocked depth chart including Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr. and restricted free agent pickup Cameron Meredith means there won’t be pressure on him immediately.

In the decisive fourth quarter, Durant hit just one of his five shots and passed up a shot to feed Klay Thompson in the corner on a key possession with the Warriors down by two in the game’s final seconds. Thompson ended up missing a 16-foot fadeaway with 0.5 seconds left after a chaotic sequence in which Draymond Green tried to call a timeout but failed to get the referee’s attention.

Who else but Paul got the rebound? After a Shaun Livingston foul and Paul going 1-of-2 from the line, the Warriors got one final look. Curry missed a 3-pointer from the left corner, which wouldn’t have counted Authentic Mike Komisarek Jersey anyway because the shot wasn’t released before the final buzzer. The two-time MVP was just 1-for-8 in the fourth quarter.

He’ll be present even though the team has yet to give him a new contract. The question becomes whether and to what extent he’ll be participating in on-field sessions.

ESPN: You put together an incredible front office. For three years, they were moving together, building a contender to bring a Cup to Toronto. Now, because of one decision, it falls apart because of one personnel move. Are you at all disappointed that the cabinet couldn’t be kept together?

This was vetted to the satisfaction of ownership and was not an issue in 2009 when Mr. Tepper became a minority owner of the Steelers, a league spokesperson told the Post.

Currently, owners can hold investments in casinos, as long as they don’t participate in the operation of them. That rule, and every other NFL rule regarding gambling, will need to be revisited given that the U.S. Supreme Court has opened the door to legalized gambling. Once teams are benefitted directly and indirectly from wagers on games, the traditional do’s and don’ts regarding gambling will need to be gutted.

Hunter Henry tore his ACL on Tuesday

Posted on by

If the initial report about Hunter Henry’s knee injury is correct, the Chargers may have to rethink their farewell to Antonio Gates.
Women's Elite Josh Rosen Black Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Alternate #3 NFL Arizona Cardinals Nike
The Chargers have announced that Henry tore his ACL during Tuesday’s OTA practice.

Henry was reportedly not touched before getting hurt while running during a drill. Henry, a 2016 second-round pick, caught 45 passes for 579 yards and four touchdowns last year and has 12 touchdowns over his first two seasons.

Speaking of NL West first basemen … In that 10-2 win for the Nationals, Mark Reynolds homered twice. That’s four home runs in six games for Reynolds since joining Washington. Meanwhile, in Colorado …

Limited Mens Marcus Martin Jersey Do you want me to go further? Ian Desmond is at .172/.227/.356. The Rockies need to fix first base. Maybe they should have re-signed Reynolds, who at least gave them a league-average bat last season.

Wentz, of course, didn’t actually participate in any team activities. But he did throw the football, which is still more than Andrew Luck can say.

I’m just learning how to trust it, trust your knee, trust your movement, all of those things, Wentz said, via the Associated Press. That comes over time.

Even though Wentz’s left knee injury didn’t happen in the pocket, it could take time for him to trust planting his lead leg and throwing the ball with confidence. Former NFL quarterback Carson Palmer experienced those sensations in the wake of the first of two torn ACLs that he suffered during his career.

It took me a full year, plus another six, seven games into the next season, to really feel comfortable again and not see ghosts, Palmer said in 2015, via SI.com. There would be times when I’d drop back and I’d see color flash, and I’d pull my leg back or not step into a throw because the memory was fresh.
Adoree’ Jackson Womens Jersey
Wentz will need to not see ghosts when in the pocket, when Carl Davis Authentic Jersey out of the pocket, or when running down the field. He has said his game won’t change, but if he’s overly conscious of protecting it, that could be a problem.

Prosecutors in Patricia case had medical evidence, at least 5 witnesses

The prosecution’s witness list in the sexual assault case against Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia included a nurse, a doctor, a police detective, a police officer and a college friend of the alleged victim, according to court documents obtained by the Free Press.

Elite Mens Craig Mager Jersey According to court documents, the alleged victim was treated at a hospital called Valley Regional Medical Center in Brownsville, Texas, which is about a 20-minute drive from South Padre Island. That’s where the woman claims Patricia and Mikko Rantanen Youth jersey a college friend sexually assaulted her in a hotel room during a March 1996 spring break trip.

Cavaliers: Kyle Korver’s 3-pointer with nine minutes left in the third period was their first after missing 14 in a row. It cut the deficit from 28 points to 65-40…. Tristan Thompson had eight points and 11 rebounds.

Celtics: The Celtics improved to 8-0 at home this postseason. They do not have to win on the road to reach the NBA Finals…. Boston’s 36-18 lead at the end of one quarter was the second-largest in a playoff game in franchise history.

Christian Kirk, a聽former standout at Scottsdale Saguaro and Texas A&M聽who was聽drafted in the second round聽by the Cardinals, was arrested almost two months before the draft as he was leaving the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Kirk and some friends聽were seen throwing rocks at cars outside the golf tournament on Feb. 3. He was charged with disorderly conduct and proper damage and the case is pending.

We spoke with Christian about it at length and also looked into it independently. Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future but while it remains an active legal matter, we won’t comment further.

Expect Price to improve Cincinnati’s line right away, but he’ll be a significantly better player in Year 2.

New Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel knows a little something about what it takes to play linebacker in the NFL. He played the position for 14 seasons, made one Pro Bowl and earned three Super Bowl rings.

In the AFC, only two teams have better odds than Texans of making the Super Bowl

Posted on by

The New England Patriots went 13-3 last season. The Pittsburgh Steelers did too. The Houston Texans, meanwhile, limped to a 4-12 record, which tied them for last place in the AFC South and gave them more wins than exactly two other teams in the NFL: the three-win Giants and the winless Browns. But unlike the Giants and Browns, who aren’t expected to magically turn things around in 2018, expectations are markedly different for the Texans, partly because of Deshaun Watson, whom they traded up to draft in 2017 and quickly emerged as one of the most exciting young quarterbacks in the game right up until the moment he tore his ACL in November.
Limited Womens George Blanda Jersey #22 Nike Malachi Richardson Ash NBA - Backer Toronto Raptors Pullover Hoodie
But in seven games, Watson completed 61.8 percent of his throws with 19 touchdowns, 8 interceptions and a passer rating of 103.0. In Mark Melancon Jersey terms of value per play, Watson ranked seventh among all quarterbacks, according to Football Outsiders, just ahead of Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan.

It’s also worth pointing out that Houston made back-to-back playoff appearances in 2015 and 2016 with these quarterbacks starting games: Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, T.J. Yates, Brandon Weeden, Tom Savage and Brock Osweiler.

The Panthers are in a very different situation, of course. The NFL is currently investigating team owner Jerry Richardson for sexual harassment and workplace misconduct. Richardson announced in December that he was selling the team, and the current asking price (if you care to get involved in the bidding) sits in the neighborhood of $2.5 billion. The New York Times reported last month that the ownership search was in its home stretch and that two favorites had emerged: Ben Navarro, owner of the investment firm Sherman Financial Group, and Alan Kestenbaum, the chief executive of Bedrock Industries.

Limited Womens Zaza Pachulia Jersey This is probably not a storyline the Panthers — or the league — would like to see stretch into the summer months.
