Joe Girardi remains available for teams with a job opening Juan Lagares Jersey , though according to Jon Heyman of Fancred, Girardi may be holding out for the Chicago Cubsor Chicago White Sox position to become open a year from now:Jon Heyman JonHeymanGirardi surprised reds by pulling out Friday. He had a chance to win job at that point but they never got to point of talking money with him. He also pulled out of rangers derby. Industry speculation: he waiting a year on ChicagoJon Heyman JonHeymanTo clarify the rangers told Girardi they were going in another direction (tho JG did pull himself out of reds derby)Girardi, 54, last managed the Yankees in 2017. In 10 years in New York, he went 910-710, leading the team to six postseasons and a 2009 World Series title.In one season with the Marlins (2006), Girardi went 78-84.As for the Cubs, the team is bringing back manager Joe Maddon for the 2019 season, but asBob NightengaleofUSA Todayreported in early October, the team won't offer him a contract extension this winter. Instead, "he was told he will be evaluated after next season with his five-year, $28 million contract expiring."The Cubs disappointed this season, especially in October, losing against the Milwaukee Brewers in an NL Central Division title game after the two sides finished the regular season with identical records. They then lost in the NL Wild Card Game against the Colorado Rockies.That's no guarantee Maddon won't be retained, especially if the Cubs have a strong 2019 campaign Travis d'Arnaud Jersey , but it does leave open the possibility that the position could be Girardi's if he's indeed interested in managing for the Cubs.The White Sox, meanwhile, went 62-100 this past season, and manager Rick Renteria's contract is up after the 2019 campaign. Unlike the Cubs, the White Sox are in a rebuilding phase, making it more likely Girardi would be targeting the Cubs out of the two teams given their playoff-ready roster.As for his 2019 plans,Mark Feinsandof MLB.com reported Friday that "it appears at the moment that Girardi plan is to return to MLB Network next season, though he absolutely wants to manage again. Would be surprising to see him fill any of the current openings."So regardless of whether it's with the Cubs or not, it appears Girardi's next managerial job will come in 2020. NEW YORK (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton hit the hardest homer ever measured by Major League Baseball’s Statcast system, Neil Walker hit two more home runs and the New York Yankees beat the Texas Rangers 7-3 on Thursday night.Stanton’s 28th homer was measured at 121.7 mph, the fastest long ball tracked by Statcast since the system was introduced in 2015. Miguel Andujar and Aaron Hicks also went deep, helping the Yankees win their fourth straight since a five-game skid that included a four-game sweep at AL East-leading Boston.J.A.

Edwin Diaz allowed a home run to Tyler White with two outs in the ninth before striking out Josh Reddick for his 43rd save.Haniger had a season-high four hits with two RBIs http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-tebow-jersey , Span had three RBIs and finished a double shy of the cycle, and Segura added three hits and drove in two runs.INDIANS 5, MINNESOTA 4CLEVELAND (AP) — Michael Brantley’s ninth-inning single gave Cleveland its second straight walk-off victory over Minnesota.Brantley grounded a 2-1 pitch off Addison Reed (1-6) past the diving Miguel Sano at first base to score Greg Allen. Francisco Lindor’s three-run homer in the ninth inning Wednesday gave Cleveland a 5-2 victory. Brantley’s hit set off another celebration as he was mobbed by his teammates.Allen started the rally with a single off Reed and stole second with Lindor batting. Lindor’s groundout to first moved Allen to third.Andrew Miller (2-3) struck out a batter in the ninth. The left-hander made his fourth appearance since missing two months because of an inflamed right knee.Minnesota rallied from a 4-0 deficit against reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber. Jake Cave’s fifth-inning sacrifice fly scored a run before Jorge Polanco hit first home run of the season — a three-run shot in the sixth — to tie the game.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Two weeks ago http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , St. Louis infielder Matt Adams couldn’t buy a hit.He struggled just to make contact, and was mired in a 0-for-27 slump.Those days are apparently over.Adams hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning on Monday night to rally the Cardinals to an 8-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.St. Louis, which overcame deficits of 4-0 and 6-4, moved two games ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the race for the second wild card spot in the NL. Cincinnati beat Los Angeles 10-6 Monday.Josh Harrison, Colin Moran and Starling Marte homered for Pittsburgh, which had its five-game winning streak snapped.Adams homered off Edgar Santana (2-3) to erase a 6-4 deficit.“He threw a slider middle of the plate, it stayed up and I put the barrel to it,” Adams said.Adams, a former Cardinals player claimed off waivers from Washington on Aug. 21, hit his first homer at Busch Stadium since Sept. 27, 2016. It was his 21st of the season, a career high.St. Louis manager Mike Shildt remained confident in Adams despite his struggles. Adams struck out eight times during his hitless skid Blaine Boyer Jersey , which spanned Aug. 5-28.“You have to have a short memory at this level,” Adams said. “Or it tends to have a snowball effect.”John Brebbia (2-3) picked up the victory for St. Louis, which has won two in a row.Carlos Martinez, a former starter, recorded his third save in as many chances. He gave up run-scoring double to Josh Bell with two out. But Martinez got Francisco Cervelli to ground out to Paul DeJong at deep short to end the game. The bang-bang play at first was challenged, but Cervelli was ruled out after a 31-second video review.DeJong ranged onto the outfield grass to make the play.“He knows the speed of the runner, he knows the speed of the ball,” Shildt said. “He can beat you in a lot of different ways.”St. Louis right-hander Adam Wainwright, making his first start since May 13, gave up four runs on seven hits in five innings. He retired the last eight batters after giving up three runs in the third.“I’ve got to execute a lot better than I did today,” Wainwright said. “It’s good to be back competing. I love being out there.”Shildt said Wainwright will get another start.“He’s earned the opportunity to go again,” Shildt said. “I trust his stuff http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , he’s still making pitches.”Matt Carpenter walked to start the go-ahead rally. Jose Martinez followed with a hit to set the stage for Adams’ heroics.Harrison broke a 4-4 tie with a solo shot off Chasen Shreve in sixth. Adam Frazier added a run-scoring hit for a 6-4 lead.The Cardinals scored four times in the fourth off Trevor Williams, who had allowed just four earned runs over his previous nine starts. DeJong had a two-run double and scored on Harrison Bader’s game-tying sacrifice fly.Williams allowed six hits, struck out six and didn’t walk a batter. He was making his sixth start of the season against St. Louis.“I’m just thankful I’m not pitching against the Cardinals again for the rest of the year,” Williams said. “They’re a great ball club and I wish them nothing but success going into October.”Williams came into the game on a big-time roll.“It’s been really a strong stretch,” Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said. “(Tonight) he rolled his sleeves up, went to work, stopped the bleeding that was going on.”Moran homered in the second off Wainwright, who struck out three and did not walk a batter. Marte ripped a two-run shot in the third, his 19th of the season, for a 3-0 lead.St. Louis is 33-18 under Shildt, who took over for Mike Matheny on July 15.TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: C Yadier Molina missed his fourth straight game with left hamstring tightness suffered Wednesday in Washington. He is expected to return sometime during the current seven-game homestand that began on Monday. … RHP Adam Wainwright was activated from the 60-day disabled list prior to the game.UP NEXTRHP Joe Musgrove (6-8, 3.75) takes on RHP Miles Mikolas (14-4 Melky Cabrera Jersey , 3.06) in the second game of the three-game set on Tuesday. Musgrove has gone at least seven innings in five of his last nine starts. The Cardinals are 7-1 in Mikolas’ last eight starts. NEW YORK (AP) — Major league teams this season must notify the commissioner’s office of their starting lineups before they are announced at stadiums. The decision Thursday comes in response to the Supreme Court ruling that has led to more widespread legal gambling.Through last season, clubs announced lineups as they wanted, some by posting in clubhouses, others in email to media, on Twitter or their websites.Starting this season, a team must send the starting lineup to Major League Baseball’s data operations group 15 minutes in advance of whatever time the club plans to announce it.MLB will confirm receipt and then distribute the information to its data and business partners. The team may announce the lineup either when it receives confirmation of receipt by MLB or 15 minutes after sending MLB the lineups.“We are updating a number of our procedures to reduce integrity risks associated with the expansion of sports betting in light of the Supreme Court’s ruling last May,” the commissioner’s office said in a statement.The Supreme Court invalidated a federal law that barred sports betting in most states.“One new procedure is that we now ask clubs to submit starting lineups in a uniform fashion in order to reduce the risk of confidential information being ‘tipped,'” MLB added. “This approach mirrors those of international sports leagues in more developed betting markets.”

bullpen arms available prior to Tuesday's non-waiver trade deadline by trading for right-handerKeone Kela.The Pirates acquired Kela from the Texas Rangers in exchange for pitcher Taylor Hearn and a player to be named http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , per Adam Berry of MLB.com."I've never played there. Heard from a bunch of guys that it's a fun place to play," Kela said, per Berry. "It's a baseball city. It's family-oriented. Very happy to go over there and get the same love I did here."Kela was a noteworthy addition for more than just what he'll bring in the stretch run of this season. Unlike many non-waiver trade deadline acquisitions, he is not a rental. According to Spotrac, he will not be an unrestricted free agent until 2021."Kela is an experienced, quality, high-leverage reliever who projects to be a significant addition to our late-game options for the next few seasons," general manager Neal Huntington said, per Berry.The right-hander has posted a 3.44 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 44 strikeouts and 24 saves in 36.2 innings this season. While Felipe Vazquez figures to remain the closer for the Pirates, Kela gives manager Clint Hurdle another bullpen weapon to unleash in high-leverage situations alongside Kyle Crick, Edgar Santana and Richard Rodriguez.He has always featured electrifying stuff and finished with a 2.39 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 2015 and 2.79 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in 2017. While he struggled in 2016 with a 6.09 ERA and 1.38 WHIP Bernie Williams Jersey , he still had 45 strikeouts in 34 innings and showed flashes of the head-turning talent that made him a trade target this year.Pittsburgh added Kela with an eye on October given how talented and deep bullpens can shorten games in the pressure-packed environment of the postseason. It is still facing an uphill battle but is well within striking distance at 3.5 games behind the Arizona Diamondbacks for the second wild-card spot and seven games behind the Chicago Cubs in the National League Central.Kela has appeared in four playoff games and sports a 1.93 ERA and 0.64 WHIP. Having someone like that waiting in the bullpen takes some of the responsibility off starters and creates a situation in which opponents may press if they fall behind early.Kela is just 25 years old, too.The Pirates made one of the more noteworthy additions of the trade deadline as they chase the Cubs, Diamondbacks and others in the National League playoff race. TORONTO (AP) — The Blue Jays are certain they want slugging prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to be at the center of their youth movement and rebuild.As for who is on the field around Guerrero when Toronto is ready to push for the playoffs again, that is what the team hopes to start figuring out this season.Just two years removed from a second consecutive AL Championship Series appearance, the Blue Jays have turned over the core of those postseason teams and started transitioning to the future. All over the diamond this season, young players will be given the opportunity to establish themselves. Besides Guerrero, several more gifted prospects are advancing through the minors.Aware that not all his talented youngsters will become productive big leaguers, Blue Jays President Mark Shapiro is hesitant to put a timeline on Toronto’s return to competitiveness.“There’s no limit to how quickly it can happen,” Shapiro said during a conference call. “But there’s also no certainty to how fast it will happen. That’s why it’s important to not stake it on one or two or three players. You’ve got to have a lot of players and a lot of players coming.”Still, no single player looks likely to make a bigger impact on Toronto’s fortunes than the powerful Guerrero, currently recovering from a strained left oblique. The son of a Hall of Famer, he hit .381 with 20 home runs and 77 RBIs in 91 games at Double-A and Triple-A last season.Catcher Danny Jansen, infielder Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and outfielder Billy McKinney are among the other promising players who will get their chance in Toronto this season. While success in the tough AL East won’t come easy C.C. Sabathia Jersey , Shapiro doesn’t want his youngsters accepting defeat, either.“The expectation is we go out and compete with no limitations in our own mind,” Shapiro said.ANOTHER SON RISINGToronto’s most productive batter this spring was Bo Bichette, son of former slugger Dante Bichette. A shortstop, he hit .417 with four homers in 18 games. Bichette has yet to play at Triple-A, where he’ll start the season.STARTING WITH STRORight-hander Marcus Stroman will start Toronto’s opening day game, at home against Detroit on March 28. The MVP of Team USA’s World Baseball Classic victory in 2017, Stroman had a down year in 2018, starting late because of a sore shoulder and shutting down early because of blisters. In between, he was 4-9 with a career-worst 5.54 ERA. Finally injury-free this spring, he has looked strong again. “Stroman is the right guy,” manager Charlie Montoyo said. “He’s pitching great.”ROOKIES TO WATCHJansen, who turns 24 in April http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , will get the bulk of the playing time behind the plate. A 16th round draft pick in 2013, Jansen didn’t hit much in his first few minor league seasons. After being diagnosed with astigmatism, Jansen started wearing glasses before the 2017 season, when he hit .323 at three minor league levels. He played in the All-Star Futures game last summer before joining the Blue Jays in August.NEW FACESSure-handed infielder Freddy Galvis was the only significant position player acquired over the winter, but the Blue Jays added plenty of pitching. Left-hander Clayton Richard arrived in a trade with San Diego, while right-handers Clay Buchholz, Matt Shoemaker and David Phelps signed as free agents. Toronto also signed righties Bud Norris and John Axford to minor league deals.NEW COACHESPitching coach Pete Walker and third base coach Luis Rivera are the only holdovers from former manager John Gibbons’ staff and the newcomers are from all over. Montoyo joined from the Rays, bench coach Dave Hudgens was with the Astros, first base coach Mike Budzinski came from Cleveland, bullpen coach Matt Buschmann worked for the Giants and hitting coach Guillermo Martinez was previously with the Cubs. “I’m excited about this new staff,” outfielder Kevin Pillar said. “They come from places that all have a pedigree of winning.”

The Houston Astros are one step closer to defending their World Series title after completing a three-game sweep over the Cleveland Indians in the American League Division Series.George Springer hit two home runs in a 3-for-6 day to help Houston earn an 11-3 road win on Monday in Game 3. Cleveland led 2-1 until 10 straight runs led to an easy victory for the visitors.The three wins in the best-of-five series also gives the Astros their first playoff sweep in franchise history.Terry Francona Costs Indians With Pitching Staff GambleTrevor Bauer was a Cy Young candidate as a starter over the course of the season Jose Cruz Jr. Jersey , but manager Terry Francona has decided to use him exclusively in relief this series, appearing in all three games.After allowing a run in 2.2 innings to start the series, he gave up three runs (two earned) in a miserable Game 3. He also had a pair of throwing errors that helped extend the decisive seventh inning.paul hoynes hoynsieTrevor Bauer has made 5 errors in his career. In the seventh inning in Game 3 of the ALDS, hes made 2.The Astros built their momentum and piled on the scoring against Cody Allen and others, totaling 10 runs in the last three innings. Five relievers were used to cover four innings, and all but one allowed at least one run.MikeClevinger had been all the Indians could have hoped for in his first career postseason start, especially afterproven starters Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco were unspectacular in Games 1 and 2.A solo home run was the only run heallowed in five innings that also included nine strikeouts.This wasn't enough to factor into the decision, though, as the bullpen couldn't hold onto the lead.The Indians succeeded in the past because Francona wasn't afraid to be unconventional with his pitching staff. Andrew Miller and Cody Allen virtually carried the club to the World Series in 2016.Unfortunately, the bullpen wasn't nearly as effective in 2018 and the manager's gambles didn't pay off in the playoffs. Bruce Hooley of105.7 The Zone gave his thoughts on the situation:Bruce Hooley BHOOLZNo other manager in baseball -- NONE -- could survive achieving less in 3 consecutive seasons with this starting staff and this talent. NONE! And before you say, quot;We won the Central 3 times. Thats hard.quot; Given the competition it is no harder than winning at solitaireThe players do have to perform, but Francona didn't put his best ones in a position to succeed during the series.Astros Incredible Depth Makes Them Team to Beat...AgainJust like last postseason Nolan Ryan Jersey , the Astros are getting a lot of production from a wide variety of hitters already in the playoffs.Jose Altuve is the biggest name in the lineup while Alex Bregman was the best hitter in 2018, but there are several other players who can and will hurt you if given the opportunity.George Springer hit two home runs, including one in the fifth to start Houston's scoring for the day:MLB MLBYou can鈥檛 keep these Astros down for long. jrp8xNfpX2MLB MLB#Postseason Springer is a BEAST. sZYZMC6MRBMarwin Gonzalez then came through with the big hit in the seventh inning, driving in two runs with a bases-loaded double:MLB MLB.marwinGF9 with another MASSIVE hit. #ALDS FQexZ5g8ICAfter an RBI single later in the game, Gonzalez finished 7-for-13 in the ALDS.He and Springer were also two of five Astros players with at least four hits in the series.Carlos Correa even got in on the action with an eighth-inning three-run home run, which was his first hit of the postseason.No. 4 hitter Yuli Gurriel did virtually nothing in the series but Houston kept on going with little resistance. We also haven't seen the best out of Altuve, the reigning AL MVP.If these players reach their ability andCorrea builds off his big hit, the Astros' lineup could be unstoppable.Houston had the worst scoring offense of all the AL playoff teams (despite being sixth in the majors), but the team excels because it's not too reliant on one or two players coming through night after night. In a long postseason, this could be the difference.After the supporting cast showed what it could do a year ago, the Astros look ready for another championship run in 2018.Indians Must Find Impact Hitter In Offseason After Quiet ALDSGame 3 was better for the Indians offense than the first two outings, where the team was held to a combined three runs on six hits. However http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-verlander-jersey , the final installment wasn't too much better with just three runs, with the problem being a lack of production from the team it was hoping to rely on most.Jose Ramirez looked like an MVP for much of the regular season but was no help in the ALDS while going 0-for-11 at the plate with three strikeouts.He was 0-for-4 in the must-win Game 3, ending his season by grounding into a double play. Considering he also hit 2-for-20 in the postseason last year, there are legitimate concerns about his playoff hitting.Meanwhile, the rest of the middle of the order didn't do much better.Ramirez,Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson, the team's three through five hitters, combined to go 1-for-10 Monday and the trio only had two hits all series. This won't win too many games regardless of the opponent.Francisco Lindor did his job,getting a hit in each game of the series with home runs in each of the last two. Still, you need a lot more than just a leadoff hitter in order to make a deep run in the playoffs.Looking forward, the Indians have some tough decisions with their lineup withDonaldson, Michael Brantley and Melky Cabrera among those hitting free agency this offseason. Whether or not these players are re-signed Carlos Lee Jersey , the team still needs other hitters it can trust to carry the offense when the other stars aren't hitting.Even if Ramirez has better days, he and Lindor can't do it all by themselves.If the Indians want to extend this contention window, they need to add at least one more big-time hitter this winter. What's Next?With a ticket already punched in the ALCS, the Astros can now relax until the start of the next round on Oct. 13. The squad will take on the winner of the other ALDS between Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, although Houston will only have home-field advantage against the Yankees. The NLCS comes down to Saturday's Game 7.The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers are tied at three games apiece after the Brewers controlled Game 6 at Miller Park Friday.Craig Counsell's team not only came out victorious in Game 6, it set itself up for success in Game 7 by not using Josh Hader.Los Angeles enters with more experience, and it has won four straight winner-takes-all games on the road, per ESPN Stats and Info.Saturday's winner earns a trip to Fenway Park for Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday against the Boston Red Sox.

his first win with the San Francisco 49ers.That's what allowing two fourth-quarter touchdowns and needing a favorable call by the officials just to avoid blowing a 17-point lead will do."A win's a win but it feels like a loss Authentic K'Waun Williams Jersey ," Sherman said following San Francisco's 30-27 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. "We played like crap down the stretch. We have to execute down the stretch and play better. It's a good lesson for a young team that we needed. It's a humbling lesson. Thank goodness we got a win out of it."The 49ers (1-1) broke out to a 30-13 lead behind two touchdown passes from Jimmy Garoppolo and a 66-yard TD run by Matt Breida only to see most of it evaporate on a pair of TD passes by Matthew Stafford in the fourth quarter for the Lions (0-2).That's when the biggest play happened with San Francisco facing a third-and-2 near midfield. Garoppolo threw a quick out to Breida, but Tracy Walker stepped in front and intercepted the pass, returning it to the San Francisco 7.Quandre Diggs was called for holding George Kittle on the other side of the field, giving the 49ers a reprieve."I didn't see it, but it doesn't matter," Detroit coach Matt Patricia said. "That's the way the game is being called all the way across the board. We just can't do it, make plays and then the penalties."The 49ers managed to run off more time and Stafford didn't get the ball back until he had 1:08 to go and the ball at his own 16. Detroit moved the ball to the 39 before three straight incompletions led to a turnover on downs.But a 49ers team that was happy to get any kind of win last year after an 0-9 start was far from satisfied."It's a different mindset than last year," Garoppolo said. "Last year if we got a win Authentic Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey , we were happy about it. Now, you kind of progress as a team. I think our guys are growing and learning like that. When you have a chance like we had to blow them out and take advantage of that stuff, we didn't. It's just little things like that we need to clean up."Here are some other takeaways from the game:UNDER PRESSUREThe Lions managed to put heavy pressure on Garoppolo even though top pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah missed the game with a shoulder injury. Detroit finished with six sacks, including two apiece from Jarrad Davis and Devon Kennard. Three of the sacks came in the red zone, forcing San Francisco twice to settle for field goals."I've got to get the ball out faster," Garoppolo said. "Help those guys out, make it easy, get our offense in to more of a rhythm and just take what they're giving me type of thing."BREIDA'S DAYThe 49ers faced questions at running back when Jerick McKinnon went down with a season-ending knee injury a week before the start of the season. Breida showed he can handle some of that load by rushing for 138 yards on 11 carries and catching three passes for 21 yards. His TD run was San Francisco's longest since Colin Kaepernick had a 90-yarder against the Chargers on Dec. 20 Authentic Kyle Juszczyk Jersey , 2014."You have to make the most of your opportunities," Breida said.EJECTIONDetroit running back LeGarrette Blount was ejected in the third quarter. Blount took exception to Elijah Lee pushing Stafford as he stepped out of bounds. Blount was standing on the sideline right in front of the play and went on the field and pushed Lee. Blount was assessed a personal foul and ejected."He knows better," Patricia said. "He knows that he can't do that."REPEAT RETURNSFor the second straight week, the Lions allowed a long return in the kicking game. D.J. Reed's 90-yard kickoff return to start the second half set up San Francisco's second TD of the game. Last week, Andre Roberts scored on a 78-yard punt return for the Jets. Back in October, Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson asked for a trade before the NFL trade deadline. Nothing ever came of the request, but it was an issue the Cardinals would have to address at some point. He was never going to end up with the San Francisco 49ers, but it was a situation that would be worth following.We can officially call an end to PP watch. On Wednesday at the Waste Management Open Celebrity Pro-Am in Scottsdale http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.c...o-witherspoon-jersey , Arizona, Peterson had a great shot on the 16th hole, and shortly after rescinded his trade request.I don’t recall ever seeing this kind of thing, but given that the tournament was taking place near Phoenix, this is not entirely shocking. And honestly, it’s kind of a cool way to approach it. I would prefer drama in the desert, but if not, this is one way to clear things up.The Cardinals have taken care of some notable business thus far this offseason. Along with Peterson rescinding his trade request White Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , they got word that Larry Fitzgerald will be back for another year, and of course they hired Kliff Kingsbury to take their offense to a new level. They have plenty more work to do, but they should be improved from last season.

contender into one of the NFL’s worst teams in a matter of weeks. Losing franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in Week 3 and lead running back Jerick McKinnon prior to the season has proven too much to bear San Francisco 49ers Womens Hoodie , as it would for the vast majority of teams in the NFL. The issues with turnovers, assignments and tackling have only made the on-field product that much more unbearable.Despite everything working against them, Kyle Shanahan’s squad can’t afford to lose on Thursday when the Oakland Raiders make the short trip South to Levi’s Stadium.The 49ers’ second loss to the 2-6 Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in Glendale, AZ proved a new low-point in the season — blowing a 12-point lead in the fourth quarter to one of the NFL’s worst offenses. The last-second botched snap at mid-field to end any chance at a game-tying field goal was an exclamation point on the harsh reality that the 49ers have a long way to go before competing.The 49ers’ fanbase has already set their sights on the 2019 NFL Draft. Understandably so, given the gaping holes in the roster, most notably at pass rusher. Besides, the only acceptable consolation prize for a season this disappointing would be the most coveted trophy among the loser’s bracket — the No. 1 overall pick. How many of you just said “Nick Bosa” to yourself? Unfortunately, the 1-6 Raiders are also in contention for the honor of first-overall. Draft position be damned, San Francisco’s players Womens Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys , coaches and staff cannot afford to lose the Battle of the Bay.The Raiders are the 49ers with organizational disarray taking the forefront over injuries. They may be without running back Marshawn Lynch and tackle Donald Penn, but they’re nowhere near as ravaged as the 49ers, who may even be starting third-string quarterback Nick Mullens if C.J. Beathard’s wrist injury persists. Instead, the catalyst seems to be embattled head coach Jon Gruden, who began his 10-year, $100-million tenure with Oakland by drastically altering the landscape of the organization. He traded away two of the Raiders’ top weapons on both sides of the ball in defensive end Khalil Mack and receiver Amari Copper.The 1-7 Raiders under Gruden have found a way to make headlines for the wrong reasons in 2018, with franchise players like quarterback Derek Carr taking to Twitter to reaffirm his commitment to the silver and black. Things in Oakland are slowly deteriorating as the team creeps toward their eventual 2020 move to Las Vegas.The 49ers may not have earned any real confidence at this point in the season but it still seems fair to expect them to beat the Raiders on Thursday at Levi’s Stadium. Failing to overcome an equally struggling team with as much baggage as the Raiders will cast a new shadow over the 49ers regime of Shanahan and general manager John Lynch - one that borders on doubt more than pity. Morale among the 49ers after their Week 8 collapse against the Cardinals, from the top down, was as low as it should ever be in 2018. This team needs a win www.49erscheapstore.com , for the sake of the players, coaches and staff, even if that means sacrificing valuable draft position in the process. The Bay Area rival Raiders, in front of the home crowd, under the lights of prime time, are an opportunity the 49ers can’t afford to let slip away. The San Francisco 49ers have announced Nick Mullens will be getting his second start against the New York Giants after a near perfect day last Thursday against the Oakland Raiders. If anything, Mullens should be prepared. Not just for the game, or the defense he faces, or the offense he’ll run San Francisco 49ers T-Shirt , but for his coach’s tendencies throughout the game. The Athletic’s David Lombardi dropped this today on Twitter and I found myself laughing for a good few minutes. I really wonder what Mullens is saying to Shanahan during the play-call. I’m sure while Shanahan is going off those convoluted names for a simple run through the tackles, Mullens is on his tip toes like a kid wanting to pay for his ice cream sundae for the first time, or a kid jumping out of the car at Disneyland with his parents limping behind. Of course as the night goes on I can only visualize Mullens in the huddle making the talking hand gesture and looking at the team saying “Blah, blah, blah.”Mullens is definitely one of those cats who wants to play and has visualized himself out on the field in a loud game. 49ers tight end George Kittle commented on how into it Mullens can get at his press conference last Thursday: All Mullens wanted to do was call the play. I keep thinking of Shanahan as the adult who tells the kid “waiiiiit...waiiiiiiit” for no reason other than to just make everyone wait another two seconds. In any case, now that this story is out, I’m wondering what Shanahan will have to say about this at practice. I do think a question about this is bound to come up, and I’m sure Shanahan will have a good answer for it.

49ers Mike Person Jersey , and with some down time until the 2019 NFL Combine gets going, Sports Illustrated decided to go deep into the predictions. 10 SI writers offered up predictions for who would win each of the next five Super Bowls.It’s a fun exercise in part because we know the league is going to see significant change. Back in 2012 or 2013, there would have been multiple guesses that the San Francisco 49ers would win one of the next five Super Bowls. However, in this look, the 49ers get no mentions.The predictions had 15 franchises winning at least one Super Bowl in the next five years. The Kansas City Chiefs led the way http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-aut...ston-richburg-jersey , with eight writers predicting a Super Bowl, and six of those writers predicting two Super Bowls. The New England Patriots were second with seven writers predicting a Super Bowl. Bette Marston predicted two Patriots Super Bowls, and Conor Orr predicted three Patriots Super Bowls.Some of the more amusing picks on the list include Gary Gramling picking the Oakland Raiders and Jonathan Jones picking the Denver Broncos. The New York Jets were picked once and the Cleveland Browns were picked twice, but frankly, neither is all that surprising. The Jets hope they have their franchise quarterback in Sam Darnold 49ers Richard Sherman Jersey , while the Browns are going to be a popular pick to get to the playoffs in 2019. Public perception is on their side.That being said, I’m still a little surprised the return of Jimmy Garoppolo does not have any of the SI writers a little more excited. Personally, I’m fine with the 49ers getting back under the radar. I imagine they’ll be a popular playoff pick later this summer, but while we wait for Garoppolo to get back to 100 percent, the team is flying low. We have another mock draft for you and it has a third option for 49ers. Pro Football Focus put together their first offseason 2019 NFL mock draft with an alternative pick at No. 2. The Arizona Cardinals pick Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa (yep shocker). Following up Cheap Dante Pettis Jersey , the 49ers don’t take Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen, but instead take Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams. Here’s what they had to say about the pick: I’d be more for this pick if I didn’t witness Williams mailing in his performance at the CFP National Championship game against Clemson. Williams had a nice tackle for a loss to start things, but was quiet for for most of the game. It was a disappointing display on the biggest stage thus far for him.Even if Williams played lights out like he did for the entire season, the fact remains the 49ers need an edge-rusher far more than they need help on the interior. I’m not ready to give up on Solomon Thomas just yet, and DeForest Buckner is DeForest Buckner. The 49ers have been playing Thomas on the edge which has proven to be a horrible idea on passing downs 49ers Alfred Morris Jersey , and when Thomas is on the interior for the same types of situations, it’s not atrocious. It’s that edge position that he needs to stay far away from. It’s also worth noting that perhaps a change of scenery with the 49ers’ new defensive line coach will help him get it together.Josh Allen not only brings that edge presence, but he also has that versatility. He went at No. 4 to the Oakland Raiders. All that said, if Williams can play up to the potential we all would hope he has, that is an absolutely nasty defensive interior with him and DeForest Buckner running things. But the 49ers would still need an edge-rusher.

Aaron Rodgers returns to practice The San Francisco 49ers have started their second practice of Week 6 www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com/marqui...win-jersey-authentic , while in Wisconsin, the Green Bay Packers wrapped up their Friday session. As expected, quarterback Aaron Rodgers and tight end Jimmy Graham both returned to practice after sitting out on Thursday. Rodgers said he had a setback on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, but barring anything unexpected, he’ll be playing Monday. The only change might be using a bigger knee brace.The big news for Green Bay was the addition of two offensive tackles to the injury report. Starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga was added to the report on Friday as limited with a knee injury. Additionally, swing tackle Jason Spriggs suffered an ankle injury and was listed as limited. Spriggs was carted off with the injury, which does not bode well for him.Wide receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison both were listed as limited due to hamstring injuries. Cobb has missed two games with his hamstring injury and said on Friday, “Just hoping to continue to make progress. We’ll see on Sunday what that means when we get there. It’s a daily process for me right now.” The 49ers and Packers have their final formal practices of the week on Saturday Womens DeForest Buckner Jersey , and then a Sunday walkthrough before Monday’s game.Here’s the Packers full injury report.Limited: CB Jaire Alexander (groin), WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring), CB Bashaud Breeland (hamstring), S Kentrell Brice (ankle), OT Bryan Bulaga (knee), WR Randall Cobb (hamstring), LB Nick Perry (ankle), OT Jason Spriggs (ankle) Youth Brock Coyle Jersey , S Jermaine Whitehead (back)Full: TE Jimmy Graham (knee), CB Kevin King (chin), G Justin McCray (shoulder), QB Aaron Rodgers (knee)Week 2 NFL power rankings The 2018 NFL season is officially one week old. The Monday Night Football doubleheader brought an unexpected New York Jets blowout of the Detroit Lions, and then a blowout Los Angeles Rams win over the Oakland Raiders. I would argue both games were entertaining, just in very different ways.The wrap of Week 1 means it is time to bring back our NFL power rankings. I have ranked out all 32 teams, although after only one week, there is still more questions than answers. With that in mind Womens Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , I decided to go with a slightly more objective measurement for this first ranking. I ranked the teams based on point differential. With only one week under our belt, that means the 1-0 teams are the top 15 teams, the 0-1 teams are the bottom 15 teams, and the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers are right in the middle!I’ll move to a more subjective basis for these rankings in the coming weeks, but I wanted to use this measurement just to see how crazy this first week was. I realize the blowouts came against bad teams, but even still, it’s worth a look.The San Francisco 49ers show up at No. 25 thanks to their eight point loss to the Minnesota Vikings. It could have been a lot worse, but we saw the 49ers show some life in the second half. They had a legit shot to win the game Womens Solomon Thomas Jersey , but too many mistakes cost them.The Baltimore Ravens lead the way courtesy of a 47-3 thumping of the Buffalo Bills. I would have had the Bills at the bottom of my power rankings even in the subjective format because they look to be the team ready to lead the race to the top pick.The Los Angeles Rams are the closest to a most realistic ranking, sitting third after a second half beatdown of the Oakland Raiders. It looked like the Raiders might spring the upset, but the Rams defense clamped down and the offense caught fire en route to 20 unanswered points in the second half.The Detroit Lions are second from the bottom after Monday’s ugly loss to the New York Jets. The Lions are probably not a bad as they looked, nor the Jets as good as they looked. And yet, the Lions are in rough shape heading into Santa Clara later this week. I’m fascinated to see what the 49ers defensive line can do against the Lions struggling offensive line, and what Jimmy Garoppolo can do against that defense.If I were thinking of this subjectively, I would probably have the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles at the top of the rankings, along with the Los Angeles Rams. Washington is intriguing to me. The switch from Kirk Cousins to Alex Smith is the big question mark for them. Some might view it as an upgrade in consistency Womens Dante Pettis Jersey , and they looked good in their opener. They host the Indianapolis Colts in a game they should win, and then host the Green Bay Packers in what will be their first big test of the regular season.Week 1 power rankingsRankTeamLWRankTeamLW

Yates Youth Montae Nicholson Jersey , and Mark Sanchez among the candidates identified by Adam Schefter of ESPN.Another source tells PFT that team president Bruce Allen previously has made clear within the organization his position that Kaepernick won’t be signed by Washington, ever. Allen is a political conservative, which would make Kaepernick and his habit of protesting during the national anthem something that Allen wouldn’t be inclined to embrace, ever.So even though Washington quarterbacks coach Kevin O’Connell served on the last coaching staff in San Francisco that had Kaepernick on the roster Cheap Josh Doctson Jersey , Kaepernick won’t be on the Washington roster, barring a dramatic change of heart by Allen — or a direct order from owner Daniel Snyder that having someone who possibly could help push a 6-4 start toward a finish atop the division outweighs all non-football considerations.The 5 O’Clock Club: With the first pick in the 2019 NFL draft...

a dull quarterback.Injuries to receivers Jamison Crowder and Paul Richardson and running backs Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson have kept them from getting work in with Smith at practice and stunted the Washington Redskins' passing game so far this season. The NFC East-leading Redskins have run all over opponents with a banged-up Peterson Landon Collins Jersey , boasted a much-improved defense and is only missing the kind of effective passing game they'll see Sunday when they host Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons."I think the success for a lot of NFL teams is if you can stop the run, and you can run the ball and control the clock, you've got a chance to win some games. We've been able to do all three," Thompson said. "The passing game has been up and down. It's been slow. We've been without our full group of receivers for a little bit of time. ... We just have to find a way to do a better job."Smith and the Redskins (5-2) have averaged 212.7 yards in the air, and only three teams have fewer passing touchdowns than their eight. They won't have Crowder again this week as he'll miss his fourth consecutive game with an ankle injury.Atlanta (3-4) has been battered by injuries to both starting guards and safeties, running back Devonta Freeman and linebacker Deion Jones and as a result hasn't lived up to preseason expectations. Ryan has held up his end of the bargain with 15 touchdowns and two interceptions and leads the NFL with 333.6 yards a game with the benefit of a receiving corps of Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and rookie Calvin Ridley."He's obviously done a tremendous job of reading defenses and putting a lot of different guys in advantageous situations," tight end Austin Hooper said. "That's just a credit to the work Matt's put in all year. If he keeps it going, good things will come."That's also the Redskins' message to Smith, who also has thrown only two picks and been solid at managing the ball even if the yards haven't piled up. Smith doesn't believe he has been too cautious, but acknowledges the passing game has to be far more effective in certain areas."The ones that stand out though are the situational stuff, the third downs that you don't convert because they would have given you a whole other rack of opportunities," Smith said. "The red zone, obviously because it's so vital. I think the situational stuff always tends to jump out when you don't execute, because of its magnitude."Washington is 22nd in the league on third down and 25th in the red zone. Those particular failings speak to Smith still needing to get in sync with tight end Jordan Reed Authentic Paul Richardson Jersey , Crowder, Richardson and Josh Doctson in his first year with the Redskins.With so many missed opportunities at practice because of injuries, Smith said one of the biggest hurdles is he and receivers reading the same coverage from a defense and being on the same page."There is really a premium on both the receiver and quarterbacks seeing the same thing and reacting to it the same way, and I think that's the hard part," Smith said. "There are times when it is cut and dried, when it's pure zone and we're spacing the field and timing routes and there are times when it's purely man and you just beat him. But a lot of times, it's a blend of the two and I think you've got to see the same thing, react to it the same way."Some things to watch when the Falcons visit the Redskins:PETERSON TIMEBlips in the passing game have made it all the more valuable that Peterson is still running strong at 33. Peterson has rushed for 587 yards and four touchdowns through seven games and is the most important piece of Washington's offense."He's playing so well right now, when we call a running play, he better be out there," coach Jay Gruden said. "I expect him to be a major part of our offense moving forward. He has to be right now, the way we are throwing the ball."JULIO HISTORYJones needs 134 yards receiving in his 102nd career game to become the fastest to 10,000. He's averaging 116 yards a game as part of a deep group of Falcons receivers the Redskins are concerned about."They get open, they separate, they go up and get the ball Youth Alex Smith Jersey ," Washington linebacker Zach Brown said. "It's just hard to have corners to deal with that."CLINTON-DIX DEBUTWhile the Falcons stood pat at Tuesday's trade deadline, the Redskins acquired safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix from Green Bay for a fourth-round pick. The combination of Clinton-Dix and D.J. Swearinger, who had two interceptions last week against the Giants, gives Washington arguably the best duo of safeties in the league."I came here to play," Clinton-Dix said. "I came here to work. Even if that's on special teams, I'm just helping contribute to this team any way I can, because No. 20 is going to be suited up this weekend, and you can bet that."ROAD WOESPart of Atlanta's rough road so far this season has been an 0-2 record on the road with a close loss at Philadelphia and a blowout one at Pittsburgh. The same offense that has put up over 32 points a game at home has managed just over two touchdowns on the road."The biggest issue is cadence, or the lack thereof, in the ability to hear," Hooper said. "It's just in understanding the subtle, nonverbal signals that allow you to play fast."Associated Press Writer George Henry in Flowery Branch, Georgia, contributed. Dustin Hopkins missed a 63-yard field goal with three seconds left, allowing Houston to hold on for a 23-21 victory.It was the Texans’ seventh victory in a row after an 0-3 start.Washington dropped to 6-4 http://www.authenticswashingtonredskins....-mason-foster-jersey , and combined with Dallas’ victory over Atlanta on Sunday, sets up a first-place showdown on Thanksgiving Day. The Cowboys are 5-5 after their second consecutive road victory.Houston appeared in control of the game, holding a 17-7 lead when Alex Smith was carted off with an ugly ankle injury. Smith was sandwiched between Kareem Jackson and J.J. Watt on a sack, with Watt accidentally landing on Smith’s right ankle. Smith’s injury came 33 years to the day after Joe Theismann’s leg injury.But backup Colt McCoy rallied the home team.He led Washington on a 13-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter, hitting Jordan Reed for a 9-yard score after a Preston Smith interception of Deshaun Watson. A 10-play, 67-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter that culminated with a 7-yard Adrian Peterson touchdown run gave Washington a 21-20 lead.Ka'imi Fairbairn made a 54-yard field goal with 7:30 remaining that proved the difference, but he missed from 44 yards at the end of the first half and his 45-yard miss with 52 seconds left in the game gave Washington a last, good chance.McCoy drove Washington to the Houston 45, where Hopkins missed. Hopkins was on the injury report this week with a groin injury. His game-winning try was on line but short.McCoy went 6-of-12 for 54 yards and a touchdown after Smith was 12-of-27 for 135 yards and two interceptions, including one that rookie safety Justin Reid returned for a 101-yard touchdown at the end of the first half.Peterson rushed for 51 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries.Watson completed 16 of 24 passes for 208 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. DeAndre Hopkins caught five passes for 56 yards and a touchdown, but he also lost a fumble. Lamar Miller rushed for 86 yards on 20 carries. www.nflshopoutlet.com/baltimore-ravens

NFL If you’ve been hiding under a rock for the first three weeks of the NFL season Pittsburgh Steelers Hats , you would emerge to find the most commonly-discussed issue pertaining to professional football is the increase in roughing-the-passer penalties. The Steelers’ Monday night game against the Buccaneers had four such penalties — the most in a single NFL game since 2001. With each penalty yielding an automatic first down, it’s a call that can change the landscape of any game.Throughout the league, there have been 33 accepted roughing-the-passer penalties so far in 2018. Over the last 10 years, there have been only five weeks in an NFL season where the number of roughing-the-passer penalties have hit double digits. Two of those five weeks are in 2018. Week 1 of this season and its 15 accepted penalties is on the very top of the list, with this past week of 12 penalties coming in third. Only Week 6 of the 2015 season separates those two with 13 penalties.Since 2009, the NFL has averaged 18.2 roughing-the-passer penalties during the first three weeks of the season. If the trend of 33 roughing penalties already amassed in 2018 continues throughout the regular season and playoffs, the projected number of penalties called would reach 184. To put this in perspective, there would be 77 more roughing penalties than in any other season during the last 10 years, and more than twice the average over that same time span.The reason for the increase in penalties can be attributed to the “point of emphasis” the league has placed on certain aspects of the rule. This practice isn’t new to the NFL’s evolution of roughing-the-passer penalties. In 2009, hitting a quarterback low was emphasized as roughing after Tom Brady was lost in Week 1 of the previous season. As the concern with head injuries has increased across the board, any contact to the quarterback’s head has now become a roughing penalty as well. A prime example is from Monday night’s game when Ben Roethlisberger was struck in the head by Jason Pierre-Paul.With the targeting zone in which a quarterback can be hit shrinking down from both the top and bottom, the point of emphasis this year is calling a roughing penalty when the defender is “falling with all or most of his body weight on the quarterback.” Interesting enough, it doesn’t matter at what point the quarterback releases the ball. It’s not about hitting him late; the penalty could be called even if the quarterback never gets the pass away.The reason for this emphasis is, once again, based on an injury the previous year. When Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone in Week 6 last season, the Green Bay Packers’ season took a turn for the worse. Losing a player of Rodgers’ caliber is detrimental to the NFL and its money-making machine. It would be on a similar level as the NBA losing LeBron James for half a season. Ironically Pittsburgh Steelers Womens Hoodie , it’s Rogers’ own Green Bay Packers that currently lead the league in roughing-the-quarterback penalties with five violations. Many self-proclaimed “football purists” are claiming the league is trying to turn the game into two-hand touch. Why is the NFL going to such lengths to protect the quarterback? I believe the answer is twofold. First, the quarterback position is the most marquee position on the field. Most football fans realize this fact. It’s the position most difficult to replace and thus commands the highest salary. Secondly, the quarterback is in the most vulnerable player on the field when attempting to pass. Once a quarterback drops back and is standing in the pocket, those players attempting to tackle him are moving at a much higher relative velocity. The quarterback isn’t exactly motionless, but he’s not traveling at a high rate of speed. The defenders, on the other hand, ate attempting to get to the quarterback as fast as possible. This puts the passer in a very precarious position. This situation is much like a shortstop being targeted when someone slides into second base to break up a double play. Another example is when a hockey player crashes into the goalie. The person not moving at a high rate of speed is the one who takes the brunt of the collision.So there’s a rationale behind protecting quarterbacks. But what are defenders to do? It seems as if the league has taken away the proper technique for tackling. The way I see it, there’s only one way (for now) to safely tackle the quarterback. It’s not easy, but it shouldn’t draw a penalty. The only technique I can think of to coach players would be to have the them wrap up, fall to the ground, and then pull the quarterback down on top of them.A good example of this technique was demonstrated by Bud Dupree in the second quarter of the game Monday night. On a 3rd-and-14 play (which Tampa unfortunately converted), with about 9:00 left before the half, Ryan Fitzpatrick dropped back to pass. Dupree made the hit just as Fitzpatrick released to the ball. Dupree then fell to the side and pulled Fitzpatrick down on top of him while keeping himself between the quarterback and the ground.As mentioned by Booger McFarland during the Monday night broadcast, this is a difficult technique. When a player is going full speed at someone, it’s not easy to fall to the side. But this is the NFL in which we’re now living.Until players adjust to this new point of emphasis, you’ll most likely continue to see a high amount of roughing-the-passer penalties. The Competition Committee held a conference call this week to address the situation Womens Customized Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys , but as most football experts predicted, there will be no change pertaining to how the plays are called. It’s going be up to defenders to learn a new “wrap, drop and pull” technique, in order to avoid any roughing penalties. This new technique should work — until a quarterback gets hurt by having his leg rolled on by a falling defender — or the quarterback’s head gets whipped to the ground. Once this happens, the NFL will look to take away yet another option for defenders, out of fear of losing another moneymaker. Patrick Peterson is a deal all Steelers fans want to happen. It makes complete sense. You go out and acquire a top 10 corner and make this secondary one of the best in the NFL. Peterson would shift this defense to a whole new level and give Keith Butler more scheming options than he even he could have imagined. Yet, it all seems far too unlikely. That is not the Steelers way and it never will be, even if it needs to be right now. I don’t count on that happening. But don’t let that distract you from the fact that there could be answers that all we would have to pay is money. Not just at Cornerback, but other positions of need as well. It’s no secret that the Steelers need that elusive CB2 badly, and the answer is not to wait out Artie Burns, but instead to go outside the organization for the solution. Thus, here are four free agents that the Steelers should target who could make this team better right now:CB David AmersonHere is a guy that would immediately step onto the team and be the 3rd best cornerback on roster. It was only two years ago in his age 24 season where Amerson was arguably the best cornerback in the entire NFL. He had an incredibly rocky 2017 in Oakland, but seemed to at least be competent in Kansas City, but they went for youth instead. He is still only 26 and excels in both man and zone coverage. He is a playmaker and a ballhawk with ball skills. That is something that none of the 3-man council at CB2 currently has, and if the Steelers really want to fix the CB position outside of Peterson, Amerson seems to be a great option.Amerson only had a “down” 2017 due to a foot injury which noticeably slowed him down and ended his season. Amerson is no doubt someone who can come in and give the Steelers someone that can be competent opposite of Haden. It is low risk www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com , high reward move, especially if Amerson returns to his 2016 form.EDGE Junior GaletteI have no clue why Galette is not signed. Not one clue. Go watch a little bit of his tape and you will impressed right away with how easily and how fast he can turn the bend. Galette is an OLB with legit pass rush moves and bend. He knows how to bull rush and use the leverage he naturally has to his advantage. His club-rip combo is one of the deadliest in the NFL right now and that would be a key natural source of pass rush for the Steelers.Galette had the third most pressures among NFC OLBs and ranked second in pass rushing efficiency per PFF. That is all I need to cite. In addition, a 70.3 run defense grade adds a cherry on top to this argument. Galette would be a huge boost off the edge and should be a target for the Steelers right away. DB Quinten RollinsI don’t love Rollins’ game, but what I do love is his versatility. Right now, Rollins would be a better version of Cam Sutton. Rollins is much more hands on and physical, and when he was in Green Bay, he was asked to play off-man about 75% of the time, but where he really excels is when he has to be right up against the line and aggressive. His press skills are really good.His zone skills are not bad, and he can process. He is prone to outside releases and being lackadaisical at times, which causes him to get burnt, but he is a willing run defender at the least. My favorite part is that he can play outside, in the slot, single-high, or even in the box. Rollins is an ultimate jack of all trades and master of none, but that does not mean he cannot be valuable to this team. While he would give an immediate solution to the CB2 issue, if an injury were to occur elsewhere Pittsburgh Steelers T-Shirt , Rollins would be a great depth piece to have there. RB Charcandrick WestA running back? Yes, that may come as a bit of a surprise, but I really just do not trust Stevan Ridley to fill in if James Conner somehow gets injured. Until Le’Veon Bell gets back, there has to be a bit of fear that if Conner does get injured, what happens? Ridley and Samuels are simply not capable backs to fill in currently. Samuels is a great receiving threat, but his vision still needs to improve, and I am not sure if he is ready to be a lead back for a game. So, yes, in comes Charcandrick West, formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs, who can offer some explosive plays, but is really just a grinder out of the backfield. His best attributes are that he is absolutely fantastic in pass protection and he has solid hands. West is more of a complete running back than anyone on the roster not named Conner. If Conner ever did get injured, this signing would pay off, and West would be much more rotatable than Ridley is currently. Simply put, a good depth signing. Custom Indianapolis Colts Jerseys

drive to start the second quarter resulted in yet another punt Cheap Chukwuma Okorafor Jersey , Roethlisberger and company went back to work and were able to add to their lead. This drive, which started at their own 8 yard line, had a little bit of everything. Roosevelt Nix had two receptions, and Antonio Brown burned the entire defense to get the team into field goal range. However, that is where the drive stalled, and a Chris Boswell 50-yard field goal made the score 24-7.Needing a drive to stay in the game, Newton and McCaffrey responded in a big way by hitting McCaffrey again for his second receiving touchdown of the game with about 5:00 left on the clock in the second quarter.5 minutes left on the clock Youth Sean Davis Jersey , and two timeouts, was a lot of time left on the clock, and the Steelers wouldn’t even need that much time to strike again. After a key third down pass to Ryan Switzer, Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for a bomb down the sideline for the Steelers touchdown.The Boswell point after kick made the score 31-17 with 3 minutes left in the first half.The 31-17 score would stand heading into halftime, with Pittsburgh getting the ball to start the third quarter.Teammates believe Le’Veon Bell will show on Wednesday, but believe they are fine either way The big news coming out of the 412 area code on Monday wasn’t the team’s most recent depth chart, or their first practice preparing for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. No http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.c...gilbert-jersey-cheap , it was who wasn’t there which made headlines. With Le’Veon Bell missing in action, his teammates, again, were forced to answer questions surrounding the All-Pro running back, and when he might grace the organization with his presence. While fans have made their stance on the situation very clear, with a large majority boarding the Anti-Bell fan bus, several current and former players spoke about how Bell missing Monday’s workout wasn’t a big deal Cheap Ben Roethlisberger Jersey , and how Wednesday would be viewed as the first ‘official’ practice of the week.Ultimately, players said all the right things when talking about Bell’s absence, and some went as far to predict Bell will return on Wednesday of this week. This is a conversation team captain Maurkice Pouncey had with a reporter during player availability Monday:Pouncey would go on to tell Jeremy Fowler of ESPN: “He’ll be here Wednesday. Count on it.”Other players were less than thrilled to be talking about it, including starting guard Ramon Foster.“No sense in talking about it,” he told Fowler. “We’ve got other things to focus on. Cleveland is a good team. Our game plan has to be A-1. And we’re on the road. We’ve got other things to worry about than other guys’ money.”With many fans wanting the Steelers to rescind Bell’s franchise tag, making him a free agent, it should be noted there is almost zero chance of that happening. The Steelers would receive nothing in return for him and wouldn’t get any production from one of the best running backs in the league. Those who want him traded should also know this isn’t possible until Bell signs his franchise tag Cheap Maurkice Pouncey Jersey , which hasn’t been done yet. The only moves the Steelers could make, but won’t, are when Bell decides he wants to report to the team and sign his franchise tag tender.The interesting part of this entire mess, which will die a very quick death once Bell arrives, is the confidence the team has in players like Stevan Ridley, and especially James Conner. Whether they could carry the load in place of Bell is anyone’s guess, but they might just get the opportunity to do so this Sunday in Cleveland if Bell doesn’t show on Wednesday Youth Bud Dupree Jersey , as many predict.Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the Steelers as they prepare for the Browns this Sunday.

If you’re looking for a silver lining in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday http://www.authenticspittsburghsteelers....-ramon-foster-jersey , it might be the news that the team appeared to escape the contest without suffering any new injuries. When speaking to reporters after the game, Mike Tomlin’s update about the squad’s health was the only positive aspect of his press conference.Given that Vance McDonald played in his first game action since January after missing most of training camp, it should be considered something of a minor miracle that he managed to play an entire 60 minutes of football without hurting himself, even if his snaps were limited at times. With three players forced to miss the game due to injury, the coaching staff will be hoping that at least one or two of them are able to return in time to face the high-flying Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3. With Ryan Fitzpatrick playing some of the best football of his career through the first two weeks of the season, having a healthy Joe Haden back on the field would be a major boost, and the cornerback offered some hope he might not be sidelined too long on Sunday via Twitter.It’s worth noting that Haden appeared to be the only notable injury the team suffered in the immediate aftermath of the game against the Cleveland Browns in Week 1 but, by Monday Youth Jon Bostic Jersey , it was apparent that David DeCastro had fractured his hand and Tyson Alualu was dealing with a shoulder problem too, so nothing is guaranteed at this stage.While he would return later in the game, James Conner could be seen receiving treatment on his leg during the second half. With it being impossible to tell what exactly was bothering him, the issue might have simply been a cramp, rather than anything more serious. But it’ll be worth waiting for more updates on Monday before assuming all is well.Reporting no adverse issues with his elbow after the game, despite missing two days of practice earlier in the week, Ben Roethlisberger will be another one to keep an eye on early in the week to make sure he’s not going to be limited on Monday. With an extra day of rest before they face Tampa Bay, it can only be hoped that will be enough time for any injured players time to recover. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns will meet for the second time in Week 8 of the 2018 regular season www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/authenti...oethlisberger-jersey , this time at Heinz Field. But the location of this game isn’t the only part of the game which will be different from their Week 1 matchup.Out is Tyrod Taylor, and in is Baker Mayfield. Gone is Josh Gordon.Todd Haley is no longer calling the plays, and plenty is different with the Steelers as well.James Conner isn’t on a quest to prove himself, but is here to show he the organization he is more than just a stop-gap for Le’Veon Bell, but his replacement.Ben Roethlisberger has been protecting the football, and the offensive line has been protecting Roethlisberger all along the way. With so much different between these two teams, you have to wonder just what the experts are thinking when they pick their winners of this game. Sure, the Steelers are 8.5-point favorites Le'Veon Bell Jersey , and the Steelers’ 3-2-1 record is better than the Browns’ 2-4-1 record, but sometimes these games can be anything but normal.Time to check in on what the experts think will go down at Heinz Field this Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.Warning to all readers, if you are looking for some experts to pick the Cleveland Browns in this AFC North grudge match — stop reading now.

White Chase Roullier Jersey , Lenard Tillery, Jamaal Charles, Adrian Peterson scheduled for visits UPDATE: Add Adrian Peterson to the list of visitsUPDATE: Orleans Darkwa unlikely to sign with Redskins?The Redskins have not had much luck keeping their running backs healthy in the preseason this year.They lost 2nd round draft pick Derrius Guice in the first game due to a torn ACL. The 2nd game saw three more RBs go down with injury. Martez Carter was waived/injured due to a leg injury. Samaje Perine will reportedly miss at least a week, with an ankle sprain and had a boot on his left foot at yesterday's practice. And Byron Marshall also sprained his ankle and will reportedly miss 2-4 weeks.This means the Redskins are down to Rob Kelley and Kapri Bibbs as their only "fully" healthy backs, with Chris Thompson still not playing in a game since a broken leg ended his season last year. Jay Gruden said yesterday the team would likely bring in some RBs for tryouts today.The names started being reported last night Authentic Montae Nicholson Jersey , and former Giants RB Orleans Darkwa was the first one leaked. He reportedly finished his solo workout already. The second name was Lenard Tillery, an UDFA last year who spent the year on IR with the Rams. The latest name to come up is one Alex Smith will be very familiar with. Former Kansas Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles is 31, but looking to play another season. Charles has dealt with knee issues(ACL, meniscus) the last few seasons. He signed a 1-year deal with the Broncos last year, but only had 296 yards rushing with 1 TD and 123 yards receiving. Does he have anything left. and is he really worth a shot at this point?"Personally Dustin Hopkins Jersey , I think Darkwa is a solid fit for the Redskins’ power running scheme. He’s only 26 with limited wear-and-tear in the NFL, and averaged 4.4 yards per carry last year behind an atrocious Giants’ offensive line. He’s solidly built at 6-0, 210lbs and runs well between the tackles. Another Tulane alum, Darkwa profiles to me as a better version of Rob Kelley." ~ Aaron LesherOne free agent who is not coming in for a visit for now? Adrian Peterson. ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have hired Tim Rattay as quarterbacks coach.The team announced the move Friday.

It has been refreshing. My entire adult life the Redskins have always had some sort of nagging issue with a player Customized Washington Redskins Jerseys , coach, or front office official being in some sort of petty feud, being disgruntled, or otherwise. Recently it appeared the team has been on a path that largely avoids such malcontent from making its way onto the field or even getting very far in the locker room. The team is starting to see the emergence of a new leader in Jonathan Allen who will chew into a teammate before he let’s them off the hook for playing poorly. The team actually is trying to adhere to a ‘code of conduct’ if you will. Generally it is the veterans that set this standard for the younger players to follow. That’s is why I find this latest PFT report disturbing.I work in an environment where myself and my colleagues constantly wear headphones. Music, Youtube, podcasts help get us through the day as be build things on our computers. If our Senior comes into our space and demands our attention to address us the headphones come out without question. I can’t see any reason why Josh Norman, a 7-year veteran, would not pay attention to what the Head Coach has to say during halftime unless he simply didn’t care. We all have our opinions about Jay Gruden but I don’t think any of us would condone a player being so cavalier and disrespectful toward him during a game. This behavior is apparently what got Norman benched during the Saints game according to PFT. The word comes from Kevin Sheehan whose source says that Jay asked Josh to take out his headphones and when he didn’t, he came up to him and removed them himself. Let’s have an exercise in optimism for one moment. We have all spaced out before and not heard something that was said to us www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com , much less if he had something obstructing our hearing. Maybe Norman was just that into his tunes at half time? The problem I see with that is Norman is not a rookie. Norman has been in many a halftime locker room. All of which feature some sort of address from the Head Coach, assistant coaches, or teammates. Furthermore he has been with the Redskins for 3 seasons now so it is not like he doesn’t have a sense of the environment during this moment in a game. There is no sense beating around the bush. Norman was signed to a big contract after having a career year in Carolina. The signing was completely fine with me then and I have no hindsight quarrel with it. Norman played very well his first season with the Redskins. He played all 16 games in 2016 and registered 3 picks, 19 passes defended, and 2 FFs to highlight some of his stats. Since 2016 his play has fallen off a cliff. He was injured in 2017 and didn’t come close to the numbers he posted before in coverage and takeaways. This year he looks even worse. He has lost his edge, he is playing softer, and he is not nearly as effective in reading a QB or sticking with a WR. We saw this in the preseason. We see it now. This does not mean that Norman ought to pack his bags and get out of the NFL. It simply means he is not a shutdown coverage corner like he used to be. I don’t know how many of you listen to Cris Carter, Shannon Sharpe, or any other former pro football player of choice on talk shows and podcasts but it is well known according to those guys that once a player realizes he is in decline it can have a profound impact on him. I don’t doubt if Josh Norman has lost confidence these past couple of seasons it is manifesting itself on the field. I don’t know if he watches the game broadcast as well but when a broadcaster says you are no long a number 1 corner and that your colleague - a converted WR - is the best cornerback on the team that must make you feel a certain type of way. It would sting if I were in his shoes. This brings us back to the issue at hand. If the above is in the realm of possibility and is leaning towards reality does that mean Josh is starting to checkout from his Head Coach Washington Redskins T-Shirt , his coaches, and his teammates? I think he may be. The report also hints that Norman may be starting to rub his coaches the wrong way and that their may be animosity building. This is not good. This is how we get to the problems we saw so publicly in the early 2010’s. Some may be of the opinion that if all of this bad blood is brewing there is still a chance that it can be rectified by Norman, Jay Gruden, and whoever else is involved. Maybe. I have worked professionally in my field for 6 whole years now (almost 7!) and what has become obvious to me is that when a boss has a problem with an employee or vice versa one of them is going to leave and its only a matter of time and a question of who. If this thing is not going to workout I believe Norman and Jay already know that. If you know that start making plans for the benefit of the team. Propose a trade, make an exit plan for next year, etc. This team has been on the precipice for so long and a positive influence like Jon Allen can easily be dwarfed by negative energy between player and coach that can spread to the locker room. We have enough case studies in the NFL to see how that can derail a team. If that is the case and if I had any power I would not be willing to risk the locker room. If you think the relationship stands a chance work though I suppose but is the effort worth it? Also think about who you would rather be here beyond the season Jay Gruden or Josh Norman? This may surprise some but if I were choosing I’d choose Gruden. . If this issue is what Sheehan says it is the team needs to do something about it quickly.

the conclusion its fans came to long ago Authentic Riley Dixon Jersey , deciding to move on from tackle Ereck Flowers. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Giants will try to find a trade partner for the offensive lineman and, barring that, will release him by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Coach Pat Shurmur confirmed this report in talking to reporters on Monday.The Giants are also confirming it.The Giants selected Flowers with the ninth overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, hoping that he’d be a long-time anchor of their offensive line at left tackle. However, that initial promise never flourished; he’s been the team’s leader in penalties called against him during his tenure while giving up 169 quarterback pressures, the most of any offensive tackle since 2015 according to Pro Football Focus (via Patricia Traina at Forbes.com). The Washington Post has Flowers allowing 18 sacks in 51 games (with 48 starts) as well as 28 penalties over his Giants career.The writing was on the wall for Flowers’ chances to contribute this year, first by the Giants’ signing of free agent Nate Solder to handle left tackle duties and then by the team declining to pick up Flowers’ $12.525 million fifth-year option in May. The final nail in the coffin came in late September, when Flowers, moved to right tackle, was then benched in favor of Chad Wheeler.Despite the need for tackle help and depth around the league, it will be hard for the Giants to find a trade partner in time for the team’s reported self-imposed Tuesday afternoon deadline. As Schefter points out Youth Evan Engram Jersey , any team to add him would also add Flowers’ $2.39 million base salary. Given Flowers’ well-publicized struggles in the NFL, few teams would want to put forth that kind of cash for someone who may be no more than a bench piece for the rest of the season.As for the Giants, they should have no trouble replacing Flowers. New York currently has three offense tackles on their practice squad — Brian Mihalik, Victor Salako and Jylan Ware — and one of whom will likely be promoted to the 53-man roster once Flowers is off of it. It is now check your professional pride time for the New York Giants. At 5-9 and officially eliminated from the playoffs the Giants have to finish the season by playing two games that can neither help them reach the postseason nor avoid ending the year with a losing record.Head coach Pat Shurmur has been preaching a “play for each other” mantra to the players all season. This week, he said the Giants would “stay in the moment” and try to prepare to defeat the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday.BBV Radio — ‘Dwayne Haskins or bust’Will players, however, do those things? Will they continue to prepare the same way they have the first 15 weeks of the season? Will they play with the same intensity, putting their body on the line when the moment calls for it? Or, will their thoughts turn to offseason vacations? When it is their time to make a play will they instead make what is often called a business decision?Shurmur and GM Dave Gettleman have spent much of the year since they were hired trying to change a losing culture. The Giants haven’t won enough games in 2018, but in many ways it has seemed that the cultural change they sought has begun to take root. Perhaps we will learn more about how successful that effort has been over the next couple of weeks.“I know from my standpoint and I know our players in the locker room, we’re going to try to get the most out of these next two weeks and try to win two football games because that joy that you feel from winning Landon Collins Jersey , even though we’re not going to be able to go on this year, that’s something that we want to feel,” said Shurmur.“Come out here and put something good on tape these last two weeks, regardless of what our scenario is because all our names are on this tape,” safety Michael Thomas said when asked about what he expected from his teammates the final two weeks. “You don’t want to be that guy who will turn down a block, not working, not going hard, not on your assignments. That tape is going to stick with you for the rest of your career.”Wide receiver Sterling Shepard voiced a similar sentiment.“We’re still going to work,” he said. “Guys are still upbeat in here and we’re going to work and try to win these next two games. That’s what our focus is.”Quarterback Eli Manning said the goal is to “end the season strong.”“I think it’s important to everybody. We’re all fighting for jobs, fighting to play good football. That’s the goal every Sunday, is to go out there and to win Authentic Jon Halapio Jersey , and try to do your job to the best of your ability. Coaches are going to be coaching. Players, we’re going to be practicing. We’re going to be game planning. We’re going to be watching film. We’re going to be putting in the work, putting in the effort,” he said. “Sunday, that’s the fun day. That’s the day where you go get to celebrate. You get to go feel good, score touchdowns, and be with your team, and compete. You definitely want to end the season strong.”Numbers that matter9 — That is how many points the Colts, winners of seven of their last eight games, are favored by. Indianapolis has rallied from a 1-5 start to have a shot at an AFC wild-card playoff berth. Nine is also where the Giants are in the current 2019 NFL Draft order.28-of-29 — That is what Pro Bowl kicker Aldrick Rosas has done this season on field-goal attempts.4,000 — Eli Manning needs 311 passing yards to reach 4 Cheap Evan Engram Jersey ,000 for the seventh time in his career.387 — Manning (331) needs 57 completions over the final two games to break his single season record for completions, which he set in 2015.The Saquon section 1,153 — Saquon Barkley is third in the NFL in rushing behind Ezekiel Elliott (1,349) and Todd Gurley (1,251).1,809 — That is Barkley’s total yards from scrimmage. He needs 191 over the final two games to become the third rookie in NFL history with 2,000. 82 — That’s how many receptions Barkley has. He needs seven catches to break Reggie Bush’s record for receptions by a rookie running back (88 in 2006). Barkley needs 10 receptions to break the Giants franchise record for receptions by a rookie. Odell Beckham Jr, had 91 in 2014.12 — Barkley has 12 games this season with at least 100 scrimmage yards, tying Edgerrin James (12 games in 1999) for the second-most games with 100+ scrimmage yards by a rookie in NFL history. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson (13 games in 1983) has more such games.5 — Barkley (4) needs one receiving touchdown to break David Meggett’s record for a Giants rookie running back (4 in 1989).10 — Barkley (9) needs one rushing touchdown to become the first Giants’ running back to reach double digits in that category since Brandon Jacobs (15 in 2008).[E-mail Ed at bigblueview@gmail.com or via the Big Blue View Contact Page | Follow Big Blue View on Twitter | ‘Like’ Big Blue View on Facebook | Follow Big Blue View on Instagram]

Happy Thursday Authentic Nate Solder Jersey , New York Giants fans. Tonight, we have a Thursday Night Football matchup between the Oakland Raiders (1-6) and the San Fransisco 49ers (1-7).This one has implications for the 1-7 Giants with both teams also in the running for the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. If the season ended today, the Giants would own that with the 49ers picking second and the Raiders third. The Giants and 49ers meet in Week 10.Here is how to watch, listen to, and wager on the game. Use this as your open thread.Game detailsWhat: Oakland Raiders vs. San Fransisco 49ersWhen: Thursday, Nov. 1Where: Levi’s StadiumGame time: 8:20 p.m.TV: FOX, NFL Network, AmazonAnnouncers: FOX — Joe Buck (Play-by-Play), Troy Aikman (Analyst), Erin Andrews and Kristina Pink (Sideline Reporters).

Another loss by your New York Giants, this one a 33-18 disappointment at the hands of the New Orleans Saints. A 1-3 record. A whole lot of locker room speeches that sounded like regurgitations of the same stuff we’ve been hearing from years from different coaches and players. Let’s review in our tradition “Kudos & Wet Willies” style.Kudos to ...First-half defense — The Giants’ defense did as much as it could to give the team a chance to win on Sunday. Four times in the first half the defense turned away Saints’ scoring opportunities Color Rush Kareem Martin Jersey , forcing field goals. That included the drive that began at the Giants’ 11-yard line after a Wayne Gallman fumble.Sterling Shepard — Ten catches in 10 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown. A pretty good day’s work for Shepard. Whatever page he and Eli Manning are on so far this season appears to be a good one. Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. need to find that page.Landon Collins — The 2018 version of Landon Collins is beginning to play like the 2016 All-Pro version of Collins, not the slowed-by-injury version we saw last season. Collins was a force at the line of scrimmage Sunday with 14 tackles (9 solo). He was also solid in coverage and had a pass defensed.Eli’s tackling — I have no idea when Manning last made a tackle, if he had ever made one in an NFL game prior to Sunday. His hustle after Gallman’s fumble, though, knocking Marshon Lattimore out of bounds at the 11-yard line, saved the Giants four points. It ended up not meaning anything, but still an excellent hustle play from the 37-year-old.B.J. Hill — The third-round pick out of North Carolina State, continues to show that he is a much better, more versatile player than most thought. The collegiate nose tackle picked up the Giants only sack of the day on Sunday, his second in as many games. He’s been a pleasant surprise in a season that has thus far featured far too much familiar disappointment.Saquon Barkley — Not Barkley’s best game, but he ended up with exactly 100 yards from scrimmage on the day (56 receiving, 44 rushing). He has hit the 100-yard mark in all four games this season. Barkley got 28 of his rushing yards on one play. There are problems with the Giants’ offense, but the way Barkley is playing isn’t one of them.Alec Ogletree — Twelve tackles, five of which were solo and two of which went for losses. The veteran linebacker made a huge interception the week before in a victory over the Houston Texans, and has been a nice addition to the defense.Wet Willies to ...Eli Manning — As I wrote last night, Manning ended up with good overall numbers (31-of-41, 255 yards, a touchdown and a 99.1 passer rating). He really, though, didn’t have a good game. He missed connections with Beckham a couple of times. Whether it was by the design of the play calls or because he simply felt he had to check the ball down because of the soft zone played by the Saints, the passing “attack” became an endless series of dump offs and short throws that went nowhere. Somehow, the Giants couldn’t find a way to attack a secondary that had been giving up 336.7 yards per game (30th in the NFL) entering the game.I have long defended Manning Authentic Riley Dixon Jersey , and continue to believe that when he is comfortable and confident — like he was vs. the Texans — that he can make plays and win games. He has to be willing, and able, to challenge defenses down the field, though. I know it was a long time ago, but the guy who won two Super Bowls was willing to do that. Now? Whatever the reason, the passing attack consists mostly of a bunch of short passes to nowhere.Offense as a whole — In a league where all of the rules favor the offense and where teams across the league seem to be consistently lighting up the scoreboard the Giants are plodding along and have now failed to score 30 or more points in 37 straight games. They haven’t even reached 20 in three of their four games this season. Astounding. The offensive line wasn’t good Sunday, with center John Greco and the league’s highest-paid left tackle, Nate Solder, appearing at first glance to struggle the most. Manning was sacked three more times, and has now been sacked 15 times in four games. At that pace, he will be sacked 60 times this season. The most he’s ever been sacked in a season is 39. Complain about Manning all you want, but you have to believe the duress he’s under and the number of times he’s being hit or pressured is contributing to not getting the ball down field.Take away Saquon Barkley’s 28-yard run and the Giants had 14 carries for 37 yards, 2.6 yards per carry. Manning didn’t get much done. Beckham again made no impact plays. Wayne Gallman had a fumble that killed a potential drive and gave the Saints three points.After the game the Giants were giving the “well, the Saints played a soft zone and didn’t let us do what we wanted” speech. We’ve been hearing it for years, from other head coaches, other offensive coordinators and other players. It’s tiresome.Even without Evan Engram the Giants have quality offensive players. They need to find better ways to use them, to actually attack defenses rather than as Pat Shurmur said after the game, “pick away” and make trying to crawl down the field look like torture.Curtis Riley — I have written this before, but the Giants have a problem at free safety. Riley has two major flaws — he consistently takes poor angles to the football, and when he does get there he simply cannot tackle. He either gets run through, past or simply hangs on to some part of a ball carrier until help from someone who can actually bring that player down arrives. It’s not a good look, and it’s not good enough to secure the back of the Giants’ defense.Jawill Davis — I hate picking on a kid who had been on an NFL roster for maybe 48 hours when Sunday’s kickoff rolled around Youth Evan Engram Jersey , the Davis was not good at all in his debut as the Giants return man. Replacing kickoff returner Codfy Latimer and punt/kickoff returner Stacy Coley (ankle), who had replaced Kaelin Clay, who had replaced Hunter Sharp, Davis was an adventure returning kicks. He fair caught the only punt he had to handle. Davis averaged 20.0 yards on three kickoff returns, but made the awful decision in the third quarter to bring a kickoff out from 5 yards deep in the end zone. He was stopped at the 11-yard line. He also mishandled two kickoffs in the end zone. A very shaky debut.Pete Morelli — The horse-collar call on Janoris Jenkins was awful. There was a missed facemask on a run by Saquon Barkley. The pass interference call late in the game on Donte Deayon was debatable. That’s not the point, or why referee Pete Morelli gets a “Wet Willie.” Could the guy look, or sound, any more bored? Or, like he would rather be anywhere else than refereeing an NFL game? From the guy’s body language and his monotone voice while making calls you’d think he was having a colonoscopy. If the guy doesn’t want to be there, he shouldn’t be there.Odell Beckham — Yes, I’m going to go here. Beckham hasn’t made an impact play in four games. Yes, Manning has missed him a couple of times. The lack of big plays, though, isn’t entirely on Manning. The Giants need Beckham to be better. I have also said this before — but the Giants didn’t make him the highest-paid receiver in the game to be a possession guy. They paid him to change games.The sideline is also part of the story. There were no meltdowns Sunday from Beckham. Problem is, there wasn’t much of anything. Beckham is the Giants’ heartbeat. He is their energy source. Sunday, he seemed lifeless on the sideline, defeated. He was quiet and alone on the sideline much of the time as the game progressed and began to get away from the Giants. If Beckham doesn’t have life, the Giants don’t have life. My game picks — I’m 0-4. I stink at picking games, that’s just how it is. I have to admit, I really wanted to pick the Giants to beat the Texans. I knew I should have done that. I wanted to do that in my gut. I just couldn’t justify it based on the numbers. Sunday, I knew better than to pick the Giants to beat the Saints. I knew that was a mistake when I first made the pick last Thursday and debated changing it right up until Sunday morning. Dummy! My advice to you — don’t ever bet your hard-earned money off my game predictions.

a lot of time talking about how players who aren’t currently on the Raiders want to play for the team in the future Womens Arik Armstead Jersey , which suggests he’s turned his attention away from caring too deeply about the results on the field for the rest of this season.Given the team’s four straight losses by at least 14 points, some may be thinking that the team’s current players have done the same thing. After Thursday night’s 34-3 49ers win, Joe Fann of the 49ers website reported that an unnamed 49ers player said the Raiders “quit early.”Players on the Oakland side disputed that notion. Defensive end Frostee Rucker said “no one is packing it in” and tight end Jared Cook shared a similar sentiment.“I never quit. I never gave up,” Cook said, via the East Bay Times. “It’s a frustrating thing to be sitting on the record you have, be going through some of the things we’re going through as an offense and still not being able to put points on the board. It definitely frustrating because we know the talent we have in this room is way better than that and way better than what we portray on the field.”Cook’s view on the talent level in Oakland probably won’t find much outside support Youth Mike Person Jersey , especially if this is what the Raiders look like when they’re giving it 100 percent. Super Bowl 53 is behind us, and with some down time until the 2019 NFL Combine gets going, Sports Illustrated decided to go deep into the predictions. 10 SI writers offered up predictions for who would win each of the next five Super Bowls.It’s a fun exercise in part because we know the league is going to see significant change. Back in 2012 or 2013, there would have been multiple guesses that the San Francisco 49ers would win one of the next five Super Bowls. However, in this look, the 49ers get no mentions.The predictions had 15 franchises winning at least one Super Bowl in the next five years. The Kansas City Chiefs led the way www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com/laken-...son-jersey-authentic , with eight writers predicting a Super Bowl, and six of those writers predicting two Super Bowls. The New England Patriots were second with seven writers predicting a Super Bowl. Bette Marston predicted two Patriots Super Bowls, and Conor Orr predicted three Patriots Super Bowls.Some of the more amusing picks on the list include Gary Gramling picking the Oakland Raiders and Jonathan Jones picking the Denver Broncos. The New York Jets were picked once and the Cleveland Browns were picked twice, but frankly, neither is all that surprising. The Jets hope they have their franchise quarterback in Sam Darnold, while the Browns are going to be a popular pick to get to the playoffs in 2019. Public perception is on their side.That being said Youth Adrian Colbert Jersey , I’m still a little surprised the return of Jimmy Garoppolo does not have any of the SI writers a little more excited. Personally, I’m fine with the 49ers getting back under the radar. I imagine they’ll be a popular playoff pick later this summer, but while we wait for Garoppolo to get back to 100 percent, the team is flying low.

The San Francisco 49ers officially named Nick Mullens their starting quarterback Tuesday for the team’s Week 10 matchup against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football at Levi’s Stadium. The quarterback informed the media during Tuesday’s post-practice availability.Monday will be Mullens’ second consecutive primetime start after making his debut against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday Night Football in Week 9. The 49ers’ backup-turned-starter completed 16 of 22 passes (72%) for 262 yards Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , three touchdowns, zero turnovers and a nearly-perfect 151.9 quarterback rating.Mullens was inserted into the starting lineup after C.J. Beathard struggled to grip the football throughout the short week leading up to the Raiders. The former starter injured his throwing hand in the second quarter of the 49ers’ Week 8 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It was Beathard’s fifth straight loss in five starts this season, now 1-9 in his career as the 49ers’ starter.Mullen’s stellar showing is on the short list for greatest debut performances ever by an NFL quarterback. He played so well that Twitter verified his account during the game.“You never know until you see someone,” Kyle Shanahan said post-game Thursday when asked if he was surprised by Mullens’ debut. “He didn’t surprise us in terms of, the game’s not too big for Nick. He’s very poised. He is always locked in. The guys, they respect him.”Mullens gets another chance to impress Monday under the lights of primetime against a vulnerable Giants defense.Jimmy Garoppolo addresses Vikings defender comment, drops, Dante Pettis What was it like going against Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia’s defenses for all of those years in practice and do you take anything from that?“Yeah, there’s a couple of little things you remember from over the years and stuff. But, Matty P’s a smart coach and I’m sure they’ll have something game planned for us.” How are you feeling, your connection with WR Dante Pettis, especially now that he’ll have to step up a bit more in WR Marquise Goodwin’s absence?“For him to come out in his first game like that and have that good of an appearance Cheap Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey , obviously there’s some things to clean up like all rookies, but for the most part I was pretty happy with it. He’s a confident guy and he plays like that.” What’s been your message these last few days as you guys get over this first loss?“It’s just we’re on to Detroit. There’s a lot of things that we need to put into this week and that’s kind of how the whole season goes. It’s a 24-hour rule after the game whether you win or lose and then it’s on to the next opponent.” One of the bigger quotes after the game in Minnesota was one of their defensive players said that the way they’ve got to get to you is by brining pressure and that you get scared. What did you think when you heard that he said that?“I’d never heard that before. But, it’s the way he thinks, I guess. Pressure is always a good thing in a quarterback’s eyes. It opens up windows, they have less guys in coverage. So, it’s kind of pick your poison I guess.” Ever since you kind of got here, you’ve stuck in the pocket no matter what was coming at you. Is that the natural way you play?“Yeah, you have to as a quarterback. There’s going to be tight windows, guys coming down on you and everything. But, it’s a combination of helping the O-Line out, them helping you out, getting the ball out on time http://www.49erscheapstore.com/pierre-garcon-jersey-cheap , all of that stuff. There’s a million things that go into it.” Still a relatively short time here, but how important was it for you to be the same guy after a loss in the locker room to your teammates as you were in five straight wins?“I think it’s pretty easy. I come in here every day grinding, trying to be the best quarterback for this team that I can be. As long as I have that mindset, I think I’ll be all right.” You guys jump started things a little bit the other day with going tempo a bit there. Do you like going to tempo and how does it fit your game?“Yeah, I think [head coach] Kyle [Shanahan] does a good job. He usually has a game plan going into it of how he wants to use it, when he wants to use it type of thing. He does a good job of putting us in those good situations. So, it makes our job a lot easier when we’re rolling like that and you kind of get the defense on their heels.” On the touchdown pass to Pettis, the play breaks down, but are you looking for him or somebody to be in that vicinity even on a play that’s broken?“It’s tough to judge. I think he did a good job of finding the open area. There’s four guys I think all shallow and no one was in the back of the end zone so he just kind of felt it. When those plays break down like that, it’s kind of, not a free for all, but everyone is kind of winging it http://www.49erscheapstore.com/earl-mitchell-jersey-cheap , I guess. You have a game plan of what you want them to do, but things happen on the run like that.” Have you always been good in those winging it situations when you have to improvise?“Yes and no. You don’t want to put yourself in that situation to begin with. But, I got flushed out of the pocket, Dante came back to the ball initially and then went deeper. So, it was a savvy move by him.” With TE George Kittle, it seems that you guys have hooked up pretty well since you got here. He plays with a style where you can tell that he wants to make a play. Does that give you confidence to go to him?“Absolutely, all of the guys. That tight end group is a confident group and it’s a nice feeling when you go over there and you say, ‘Hey, were you open on this?’ and they always say, ‘Yes.’ You want guys like that who don’t think they can get covered. So, it’s nice having them.” He got open pretty good on the one that he dropped at midfield. What did you say to him after that to try to keep his spirits up?“I didn’t see he dropped it during the game. I got hit so I thought I overthrew it actually. So, it wasn’t until we watched the film. But http://www.49erscheapstore.com/laken-tomlinson-jersey-cheap , he owned it. George is a real professional about it. It’s good.” After watching the tape of what happened in the red zone, what were your takeaways?“I missed George on the one, I shot it too high. Then, it’s the little things. We keep saying that it’s the little things that we need to correct and get right in a short time-period.” What are some of your initial impressions of Detroit’s defense? What do you see there?“They’re talented. Matty P, they’re a game-plan team. Across the board, good D-line, they get penetration, they set the edge, fast linebackers and talented secondary. They’re good at every level. We’ll have to come out with a good mindset.”
