So far, so good for Donovan in his transition to NBA life

cheap apartments in jersey city

That familiar look on Billy Donovan’s face in the huddle is there for a reason.

cheap mitchell and ness jerseys

When you’ve done this, stood in the belly of the basketball beast for as long as you can remember, another night doesn’t rattle you.

So what if you’re doing it with NBA superstars hanging on your every word instead of with future NBA superstars hanging on your every word in college.

It didn’t work out on this night, as Donovan’s Oklahoma City Thunder Jerseys couldn’t survive a late-game blitz from Jeff Teague and the Atlanta Hawks Jerseys at Philips Arena, losing 106-100 and seeing their four-game win streak come to an end.

But the mode and the message don’t change.

Thunder vs. Hawks

Paul Millsap scores 26 points and grabs 11 rebounds and Jeff Teague adds 25 as the Hawks defeat the Thunder.

“We put ourselves in a bad position,” mercurial Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook said, echoing the words of his coach from a few minutes earlier. “Whenever we’re locked in and ready to play, we have a chance to win the game.”

Donovan is just roughly a quarter of the way into his first NBA job, after spending the last 19 years entrenched at the University of Florida. Yet he seems every bit as comfortable working the sidelines at this level as he did as one of the elite coaches in college. And his quick connection with his players — specifically stars Westbrook and Kevin Durant — is one of his early strengths.

Generally speaking in college, you need that repetition on the floor, that constant drilling, to get better. These guys have played in so many games over so many years, they’re able to learn and grow by just watching film …

– Oklahoma City Thunder Jerseys coach Billy Donovan

He didn’t come into the situation trying to make waves after taking over in April after Scott Brooks was fired. He showed up with a detailed plan and a good understanding of what the expectations would be for any coach taking over a team with the sort of talent and depth the Thunder boast.

Donovan wanted to make life easier for them. As well, he wanted to take some of the pressure off of two of the game’s biggest stars — particularly at crunch time — while not tinkering too much with what’s worked for one of the league’s most dynamic duos.

“It’s been good,” Durant said. “We’re still learning. We’ve definitely gotten better over these last few weeks. Coach has been putting in some good sets cheap apartments in jersey city for us on offense and some different schemes on defense and we’ve been getting better at it.”

Nets vs.Thunder

Kevin Durant scores 30 points, Russell Westbrook adds 27 points and 13 assists and the Thunder beat the Nets 110-99 on Wednesday night.

Donovan’s measured approach has been the right fit with the Thunder, who are in Miami tonight for a tilt with the Miami Heat Jerseys (7 ET, TNT). It’s Donovan’s first trip back to Florida since leaving Gainesville for Oklahoma City and the five-year, $30 million deal that finally pried him away from the college game.

Donovan backed out of a signed contract with the Orlando Magic Jerseys in 2007, opting to stick to stick with the powerhouse program he’d built at Florida instead of trying his hand at the NBA.

The timing, however, was right this time. And it’s a move many of the NBA players who starred for Donovan at Florida felt was inevitable.

“It’s something he always wanted to do, so I knew when the right situation came along he was going to jump at it,” said Hawks All-Star center Al Horford, who was also on Florida’s back-to-back NCAA championship teams of 2006 and ’07.

We’ve definitely gotten better over these last few weeks. Coach has been putting in some good sets for us on offense and some different schemes on defense and we’ve been getting better at it.

– Oklahoma City Thunder Jerseys star Kevin Durant

“I think that the biggest thing for him is that he’s always focused on what he wants to do going into every single situation, and that helps no matter what level you are playing at, to have a coach like that. The good thing for those guys (the Thunder) is that he’s going to put them in good, winning situations. And as long as they trust him, they’re going to be fine.”

Donovan reputation preceded him in the Thunder locker room. With nine first-round Draft picks and enough former Florida stars in the league to fill out an entire NBA roster willing and ready to vouch for him, credibility was not a problem. That difficult transition that has devoured some college coaches trying to manage that transition does not appear to be an issue for Donovan.

That’s not to say there haven’t been a few surprises here and there. The pace of the season, the travel grind and the fundamental differences in how you approach the job daily requires some adjusting, no matter who you are or how prepared you may feel you are.

Pistons vs. Thunder

Kevin Durant scores 34 points, grabs 13 rebounds and five blocks to lead the Thunder past the visiting Pistons, 103-87.

“There haven’t really been any surprises for me,” Donovan said. “I would say the one thing for me that you look at, especially with our veteran guys, is that they have so many games under their belts, so many experiences under their belts that a lot of time in college you need on the floor practices to get better as a team. We went through a stretch (last month) where we didn’t have a lot of practice time and we were really able to use film work to get better and improve. Generally speaking in college, you need that repetition on the floor, that constant drilling, to get better. These guys have played in so many games over so many years, they’re able to learn and grow by just watching film, and they’re able to apply it on the floor.”
After missing out on the playoffs last season, the Thunder are right back in the thick of things in the Western Conference standings. Durant and Westbrook are both healthy and their supporting cast is finding their roles in this new system.

Donovan’s greatest contribution to the Thunder, Horford insists, will come in the culture he creates for his players. His understanding of what it takes to thrive at a championship level will mean more than any play he can draw up or words of wisdom he can relay in the huddle.

“He really made me understand what team basketball is all about, and how you are supposed to play,” Horford said. “And it’s something I’ve carried with me ever since. That’s always my approach, thinking of the team and thinking of winning above everything else. That’s what he’s about and that’s what his teams, no matter what level, are always going to be about. It’s just who he is and what he believes in.”

Kobe Bryant turns back the clock with 31 points, big buckets in Lakers win

jerseys for cheap

Kobe Bryant’s Sunday retirement announcement changed the atmosphere around his season considerably, turning an awful and sometimes unwatchable set of performances into a mostly positive farewell tour. Opposing teams can now celebrate his accomplishments and act as if the Los Angeles Lakers Jerseys icon is a universally beloved figure and not the most divisive player of his generation. There’s something a little odd and maybe a little disingenuous about the whole thing, especially since Kobe himself wants us to appreciate the beauty in the pain of the experience, but it’s admittedly been nice to look back on everything that he has accomplished. We are dealing with one of the greatest players ever, after all.

cheap lakers jersey

Yet Kobe’s final visit to the Washington Wizards Jerseys on Wednesday offered something new and unexpected for him this season ?a legitimately good game. Bryant scored a Lakers season-high 31 points on 10-of-24 from the field (including 4-of-11 from long range) in 36 minutes to propel Los Angeles to a 108-104 win, just its third in 18 tries. Take a look at his night here:

cheap liverpool jerseys

The last two buckets stand out more than any others. Down 99-98 with around a minute remaining in regulation, Kobe used a pick to free up just enough space to launch a long three-pointer to give the Lakers the lead. Marcin Gortat laid the ball in off a John Wall assist on the next possession to tie it back up, but Bryant answered by taking Bradley Beal one-on-one and burying a fadeaway over him late in the shot clock. A subsequent Wall turnover made it a free-throw contest in the final seconds, and the Lakers hit enough to withstand a minor rally.
To be clear, this Kobe performance was not dominant so much as in line with an average game from the days when he was the most feared scorer in the league. But that’s an accomplishment in itself during a season that has Bryant as one of the least efficient and most ball-dominant players in the league. Plus, younger players like Julius Randle (15 points and 19 rebounds) played well enough to help the Lakers bounce back from giving the Philadelphia 76ers Jerseys their first win of the season on Tuesday.

The news was not so great for the Wizards, who followed a potential return to form in a Tuesday win over the Cleveland Cavaliers Jerseys by losing at home to one of the worst teams in the league. Wall had a reasonably good night with 34 points on 11-of-19 shooting and 11 assists, but he also controlled an offense that turned it over 23 times for 33 Lakers points. They still need a lot of help.

Jim Johnson rejoins Braves on one-year deal

cheap jerseys online

ATLANTA — The Braves are bringing Jim Johnson back to Atlanta with the hope that he will once again benefit from the opportunity to work with pitching coach Roger McDowell.

cheap kansas city chiefs apparel

Johnson and the Braves agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal on Monday. This might be the start of an annual tradition for these two parties, which also agreed to a one-year deal on Dec. 3, 2014.

cheap la kings jerseys

“We are thrilled to bring Jim Johnson back to the Braves,” Braves general manager John Coppolella said. “We feel he will once again play an important role in our bullpen.”

The Braves are still seeking to add at least one more setup man and left-handed specialist. But with Arodys Vizcaino Jerseys, Chris Withrow Jerseys and Johnson, they feel they already have some back-end bullpen depth. The depth will be strengthened if Jason Grilli Jerseys cheap jerseys online (Achilles), Shae Simmons Jerseys (elbow) and non-roster invitee David Carpenter Jerseys (shoulder) make successful returns next season.

When Johnson signed with the Braves last year, he was looking to bounce back from a tough 2014 season, during which he had produced 7.09 ERA over 54 appearances with the A’s and Tigers. The tall right-hander had produced consecutive 50-save seasons with the Orioles in 2012 and ’13.

But after being traded to the A’s, Johnson never seemed to find the same form he has shown while pitching for the Orioles and the Braves.

Johnson converted nine of 13 save opportunities and produced a 2.25 ERA in the 49 appearances he made for the Braves in 2015. He surrendered a .256 batting average and .311 on-base percentage while generating a 62.2 percent ground-ball rate during his time in Atlanta.

When the Braves signed Johnson last year, they believed he would benefit from the chance to work with McDowell, who had also relied heavily on a sinker during his days as a reliever.
Johnson provided some encouragement with the extended success he had after allowing a run during three consecutive appearances in April. During the 41 appearances he made for the Braves after April 23, he produced a 1.58 ERA.

Unfortunately for Johnson, the promise he created during the first four months of the 2015 season evaporated after the Braves traded him to the Dodgers on July 30. Los Angeles viewed the veteran reliever as the solution to their eighth-inning woes.

But it didn’t take long for Johnson to once again struggle in a different environment.

Johnson posted a 10.13 ERA over 23 appearances for the Dodgers and was sent home before Los Angeles began competing in the postseason. Opponents hit .381 with a .442 on-base percentage against him while pitching for L.A.

Johnson’s ERA with the Dodgers was significantly damaged by the eight earned runs he allowed in just two-thirds of an inning against the Pirates on Aug. 9. But he still produced a 5.40 ERA in the 19 appearances that followed that forgettable outing in Pittsburgh. He allowed at least two hits in five of his final eight appearances.

“We watched video and we saw a lot of bad luck,” Coppolella said. “I think he’s somebody you can count on when he’s in the right environment.”

5 hours later, Royals win World Series opener in 14th

cheap jersey

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An inside-the-park home run. A power failure that blacked out the TV audience. Crazy bounces, great plays and key errors.

cheap jersys

The longest World Series opener ever had a little bit of everything. And more than five hours after they began, Alcides Escobar Jerseys and the Kansas City Royals also had just enough energy to outlast the New York Mets.

cheap jerseys home

Saved by Alex Gordon’s tying home run in the ninth inning off Mets closer Jeurys Familia, the Royals won in the 14th when Escobar dashed home on Eric Hosmer Jerseys’s sacrifice fly for a 5-4 win late Tuesday night.

cheap kaepernick jersey

“It was a great night,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “Two things you don’t want in Game 1 of the World Series: One is to go 14 innings and the other is to lose.”

This tied for longest Series game ever and ended at 12:18 a.m. From the get-go, it was wild and weird.

Escobar hit an inside-the-parker on the very first pitch from Matt Harvey. Later, that power problem caused fans and the team’s replay rooms at Kauffman Stadium to go dark.

The nearer it got to midnight — and beyond — the more oddly the ball bounced.

In the 11th, Salvador Perez Jerseys grounded a single that hit the third-base bag and caromed high in the air. In the 12th, Daniel Murphy struck out on a pitch that got past Perez — it ricocheted off the backstop to the Royals catcher, who threw out Murphy at first.

About the only thing missing? A home run by Murphy, who had connected in a record six straight postseason games. The MVP of the NL Championship Series did contribute a pair of singles.

“Yeah, there was a lot of baseball out there,” Murphy said.

In the 14th, Escobar reached on an error by third baseman David Wright. Ben Zobrist’s single put runners at the corners and an intentional walk to Lorenzo Cain loaded the bases with no outs.

Hosmer atoned for a key error by lifting a flyball measured at 300 feet, and Escobar barely beat right fielder Curtis Granderson’s throw home.

“I wanted to redeem myself for what happened earlier,” Hosmer said. “That’s the beauty of this game.”

Chris Young Jerseys pitched three hitless innings for the win. Bartolo Colon gave up an unearned run and took the loss.
“Their team, one of the things we know about them is they’re never down and out,” Mets manager Terry Collins. “We’ve got to put them away. We’ve got to do a better job.”

Game 2 is Wednesday night, with Jacob deGrom starting for the Mets against Johnny Cueto Jerseys. It’s a hairy matchup: DeGrom’s flowing tresses vs. Cueto’s mop of dreadlocks.

Anyone who’s ever seen the Royals play — especially in October — knows they’re called resilient for a reason. Once again, they reinforced their reputation.

Gordon shook the ballpark when he tagged Familia, hitting a solo drive with one out over the center field wall. The star closer hadn’t blown a save since July 30 and had been nearly perfect this postseason.

Known more for his glove than his bat, Gordon connected when he said Familia tried to quick pitch him, and got a huge hug in the dugout from Hosmer. A two-time Gold Glove cheap jersey first baseman, Hosmer’s error gave the Mets a cheap jerseys 4-3 lead in the eighth.

“I was the happiest person in the stadium when Gordon homered,” Hosmer said. “I told him, ‘I just want to hug you right now.’ I think a lot of people in Kansas City want to hug him.”

Escobar provided the early excitement. He loves to swing at first pitches, and this time the MVP of AL Championship Series produced his best result yet.

Tyrann Mathieu on the high-flying Cardinals

kevin durant jersey cheap

PHOENIX?— It’s instructive to remember that?Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu Jerseys is still only 23, even though he’s already in his third NFL season and it feels as if we’ve been watching him fly around a football field forever. But 2015 is turning out to be the best year so far of Mathieu’s pro career. He’s healthy and producing for the 8–2, first-place Cardinals, who hold a commanding three-game lead over Seattle (5–5) in the NFC West.

cheap jersey frames

In 10 games this season, Mathieu has been all over the field as a playmaker, with three interceptions, a touchdown return, a forced fumble, a sack, 12 passes defended and 57 tackles. The 2013 third-round pick has emerged as one of the most trusted and consistent leaders on the Arizona defense, and he still has that ferocious playing style that makes him seem much bigger than his 5’9″, 186-pound frame.

cheap jersey boys tickets

Just hours after Arizona knocked off the?Bengals 34–31 in that thrilling Sunday night game at University of Phoenix Stadium, I caught up with Mathieu, aka “the Honey Badger,” to talk about everything from Drew Stanton Jerseys’s dancing to the toughest opponent he’s faced in the NFL.

Don Banks: How much does last year, going from a 9–1 start to one-and-done in the playoffs, drive this season’s Cardinals team?

Tyrann Mathieu Jerseys: It’s driving us every day. Because we understand what type of talent we had, despite what was going on around us with losing our quarterbacks. We got together in the spring and said, “This is it. This is our moment.” We understand what we did last year and how we kind of screwed up ourselves. We started 9–1, but then we lost five out of our last seven games [including playoffs]. It was a learning experience for us, but we thank God that we kind of kept our same team together. We lost a couple guys, but most of our core stayed together and a lot of guys on our team this year are using last year for motivation. Just to see us closing out these last-minute games, we lost those games last year. Those two or three-point games we lost. So it’s great to see us hang on and close them out this year, especially on primetime TV. That says a lot about our team.

by Doug Farrar

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 More ?DB: Your coach, Bruce Arians, really knows what he’s doing. What’s the most memorable thing he has ever said to you?

TM: Well, he tends to call me the fish of the group, in our secondary, and really what that means is offenses are going to come out and basically pick on me. He’s always challenging us in ways like that, but that’s the thing we like about him the most. Especially with him being an offensive guy, he’s still so into what we do on defense. If we go a whole practice without getting our hands on the ball, that’s something he’s going to address right then and there. He knows what kind of players he has and it’s always pushing for the next level with him. He always wants us to get better and improve the next week.

And even if we have a big victory and we play dominantly, it’s always something he’s going to pick out that we can do better. It’s something we appreciate. He preaches “Next man up” so much that that’s kind of who we are. Everybody has to be ready. He doesn’t believe in starters. He doesn’t believe in backups. He believes in one team and everybody sticking their hand in the pile. So it definitely makes it a team atmosphere.

DB: So when you say he calls you the fish, you’re talking like the sucker in a poker game, the easy mark?

TM: Right. And I’m looking at my season, or the type of games I’m having, and I’m like, “Coach, what’s up man? How can I be the fish?”

DB: I’m one of the voters for the NFL’s annual individual awards. You take my vote for the day. Who gets the nod for Defensive Player of the Year through 11 weeks of the NFL’s 2015 season?

TM: I don’t want to be biased, but I’d probably have to go with Pat [Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson Jerseys], man. You’re talking about a guy who gave up probably eight touchdowns last year and he wasn’t playing well against all those big-time receivers. Julio [Jones] had 150 [yards] on him like in the first half last year. Just to see him come back this year and take his spot back and be the best cornerback and shut receivers out, it’s impressive.

I know [Bengals receiver] A.J. [Green] caught a couple balls on him [Sunday night], but it wasn’t the balls that A.J. really wanted to catch. So you talk about [Panthers cornerback]?Josh Norman, I think those guys are having the same kind of year, shutting guys out. I know Norman has a lower completion percentage against him, but Pat is playing some good ball right now. Even the guy from St. Louis, Aaron Donald, I’ve never seen a guy that dominant on the defensive line. Every time we play them, I’m like, “I hope he doesn’t get to No. 3, because we need Carson.”

by Michael Rosenberg

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 More DB: Okay, so who’s the toughest current receiver to cover as a defensive back in the league today??

TM: I’d probably have to go with?Antonio Brown. I played against him, and just his route running is so tough, and he didn’t have his quarterback [Ben Roethlisberger]?that day. And I was thinking, “Man, if he had his quarterback that day, what type of day he would have had.” With him it’s his route running and everything he does, and after the catch. That’s really the headache, because you know he’s going to get his catches. The biggest is trying to get him on the ground, because he’s basically a running back with the ball in his hands.

So I’d probably have go Antonio Brown right now, but Odell [Beckham Jr.] is probably a close second.

DB: Tell me the truth, what did you really think of Drew Stanton Jerseys’s dancing?

TM: [Laughs.] I thought it was excellent. Any time your backup quarterback is into the game like that, you’ve got a pretty good thing going in your locker room, because he was fired up. I think he did a great job.

DB: But it was so white. Wasn’t it just so white, with no rhythm or set moves to it?

TM: [Laughs harder.] Yeah. It was definitely Drew.

DB: You shot a spot for PETA earlier this year, demonstrating how dogs should not be left in the car in the Arizona heat. You sat in a car with the windows rolled up for about eight minutes in 120-degree heat, until you were a sweaty mess. Why did that issue matter to you and was worth spending your time and energy on it?

TM: For one, I’m a dog owner myself. I have a Yorkie named King. Just the relationship I’ve developed with him is special. He really is somewhat of a best friend. When I come home from a hard day, he’s always happy to see me. Just that relationship I built with my dog, and once PETA reached out to me, it was really a no-brainer for me to do it, especially since out here in the summertime temperatures get up to 120. It was the right thing to do, and for me it was personal because I wouldn’t want to do that to my dog.

And before I did that spot, I didn’t really know that was a law, that you can’t leave your dog in the car. I didn’t know that was a crime. So it if was definitely an eye-opener for me, hopefully it’ll open other people’s eyes as well.

DB: Carson Palmer Jerseys has this almost other-worldly calm and cool to him at all times. How do you get him mad? Have you ever seen him lose it? Can you even push his buttons?

TM: I have never seen him upset. Even when he threw the two [first-half] interceptions [Sunday night]. He was looking at the defense like, “C’mon, just give me another chance. I’ve got you guys.” Any time you’ve got a quarterback, man, who’s not affected by the things going on around him, it’s so great. He’s a fighter. Like I said [Sunday] night after the victory, this year is personal for him, because he’s been through a lot and obviously he’s getting up there in age and that window is starting to close. It closes for all us. The time to win a championship, we feel, is right now, with the type of team we have and Carson coming off that knee injury. To see him come out and play the way he’s playing, just his leadership in our locker room, has been great. He doesn’t say too much, but when he does speak, it speaks loudly.

NFL Video Week 11 Snaps: Broncos have no reason to switch quarterbacks again

by Don Banks

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 More ?DB: Six weeks to go. Which remaining regular-season game are you most looking forward to?

TM: I’d probably be looking forward to the last two games, because we finish out at home against Green Bay and Seattle. Obviously we feel like Green Bay is a pretty good team, a quality team, with a veteran quarterback who knows how to take his team where it wants to go. If we can get to the Green Bay game with great momentum and play those guys at home, hopefully for homefield advantage or whatever it may be, and then finish out with Seattle, and try to wrap up the division. Those last two games would be real big for us, especially if we were going into the playoffs.

DB: I’m guessing that even though you lead Seattle by three games in the division and they’re only 5–5, you still see the Seahawks as dangerous. Is Seattle still in your rearview mirror?

TM: Oh, no way have we lost sight of them. We’ve got so much respect for any team that wins a championship. Any team that’s consistent over time, you have to respect what they have. They started slowly last year and then they finished out and won the division. We understand what type of team they are and that those guys understand where they want to go this year. It’s going to be tough for us to finish out strong, especially with those guys coming into our house at the end of the year. We beat those guys in their house, which doesn’t happen often, so I know those guys are going to be fired up when they come to our house. They want to get that win back.

DB: Just wondering here, but do your two kids get to call you the Honey Badger?

TM: [Laughs.] No way.

DB: Does anyone call you Honey Badger without your permission?

TM: Well, Coach Arians. He calls me Honey. I don’t know if that’s really Honey Badger.

DB: You went on Twitter after the loss in Week 6 to the Steelers and kind of railed on some fans who were critical. Then you deleted those comments. How hard is it to be an NFL player in the age of Twitter and trying to resist the urge to talk back to critical fans or trolls?

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 More ?TM: It’s so hard, man, because we invest so much of ourselves into this game. So much time. No one feels worse than I felt when I gave up the 88-yard slant [to Martavis Bryant in the fourth quarter]. There are so many emotions. I’m passionate, I love this game. I never want people to think I’m not playing my hardest or I’m not giving it my all. Because every play I’m trying to do my very best. At times you get heated. That’s why I deleted it. I realized what kevin durant jersey cheap I had done and I shouldn’t have done that, but it was a game that was personal to me because of who I’m with, with a coach [Arians]?who coached there. And we’ve got Larry Foote Jerseys, who coaches our linebackers, who played there, too, as did LaMarr Woodley. So I took that game personally because I had guys around me who took it personally. I wanted to win that game so badly for those three guys. Just to lose that game, I felt like I lost that game personally.

DB: From that day in September 2012, when you’re on TV in the stands watching LSU play, after being kicked off the team for your marijuana use, how dramatically different is your life these days in Arizona? Is it worlds apart?

TM: Absolutely, man. That day, I’m sitting in the stands and I’m watching everything that I ever had, because I gave everything to play for LSU. And here I am watching them play without me. It was a gut check, a reality check for me. I never want to experience that again. And thank God I had some people around me who were able to pick me up, because I was sliding down. I was on my face, I didn’t even know how to get up. I had people around me who supported me and encouraged me and helped me, and thanks to them, I got up. And ever since that day, I got up and I never went back down.

DB: Have you ever seen that footage of you in the stands at LSU’s game that day? You looked heartbroken.

TM: Yeah, it was sad. I’m sitting around all these fans, and they used to be my fans. And they’re looking at me like, “C’mon, bro, you’re disappointing.” It was tough. I was disappointing. I had a lot of responsibility and I was the leader of my team and I was a leader of that community. And I should have realized my impact. I should have realized the consequences of me doing what I was doing. It’s not really an excuse for me, being 20 years old. I should have adjusted to it and been able to handle that role.

NFL Video Fisher’s handling of QB Keenum’s concussion simply not good enough by Chris Burke
More DB: This season, you have picked off Russell Wilson, and then?Colin Kaepernick?twice in the same game. In the past you’ve picked off Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Brandon Weeden. Those are all six of your NFL interceptions. Do you only like to pick off top-notch quarterbacks (okay, so there’s Weeden), and do you think you might have inadvertently helped bring upon the end of the Kaepernick era in San Francisco?

TM: Well, I can’t take all the credit for that. That day on defense we were rolling. We were well-prepared and we knew everything that was going to happen to us. For the most part everybody made a play that day. But speaking about the top-notch quarterbacks, I think that is true. Because when I play against guys who aren’t necessarily Drew Brees or Russell Wilson, they really don’t throw the ball my way. It takes facing a quarterback who trusts his receivers or who has the arm to fit throws in small windows. They take more risks, because they believe in themselves.

DB: Where do you believe you rank in terms of the game’s best defensive backs at this point? Is it where you want it to be? Is your strength that you can do a little bit of everything?

TM: I think I do a little bit of everything and do it well. I don’t really play safety that much, even though they list me as a free safety. I think Harrison Smith?[of the Vikings], that’s the guy I’m studying these days, I think he’s probably one of the best safeties in the league right now. I think if I had an opportunity to play safety more, I’d definitely be up there with Harrison Smith. But he’s probably the best right now.

But I like how they use me here. I’m always moving around. It’s hard for offenses to get a grip on what I’m doing or where I’m at. I think Cincinnati did a good job [Sunday] night. They ID-ed me a lot and kept a lot of things away from me. Run plays, pass plays. They did a great job. So for me, I’ve got to keep playing? and if I’m not making those big plays that I’m accustomed to making, I just have to stay in the game and hopefully get the opportunity to make a play.

Blackhawks’ Anisimov has winning instincts

cheap bike jerseys

CHICAGO — Artem Anisimov Jerseys can’t explain exactly what he’s trying to do when playing alongside Chicago Blackhawks wingers Patrick Kane Jerseys and Artemi Panarin.

cheap game jerseys

He just does it.

“I don’t know, actually,” the 27-year-old Russian Anisimov said. “I don’t think about this stuff. I just go on the ice and play.”

He was just playing when he knocked the puck to Panarin as he was cutting to the net for a goal against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday. He was just playing when he skated wide into the offensive zone, caught the defense off guard as he burst to the net and scored while coming across the crease against the Florida Panthers last month. He’s just playing when he battles and wins pucks, shields opposing goaltenders with his 6-foot-4, 198-pound frame, while his two wingers fire off shots. And he’s just playing when he puts himself in position to break up plays in the defensive zone.

Anismov’s instincts have served him well. More so, they have served Kane and Panarin — two of the league’s hottest players — extremely well.

“There’s been a lot of plays this year too where he may have not gotten an assist or a goal on the play, but he could be the biggest reason we scored that goal,” said Kane, who has produced 12 of his 17 even-strength points with Anisimov on the ice.

Anisimov’s addition has so far worked out better than Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman even imagined. Bowman had his eye on the center for years, and he was close to trading for him last season. The deal fell through, but Bowman got another shot in late June.

When it became apparent Bowman and Brandon Saad Jerseys weren’t going to agree on an extension after last season, Bowman turned to the Columbus Blue Jackets and worked out a deal to acquire Anisimov. Bowman finally had his man and the Blackhawks finally had a permanent second-line center.

“You look around the league, there’s only really a handful of big centermen in the league,” Bowman said. “Maybe five or 10 that are 6-3. … He had been someone we had watched and we liked. You rarely get the chance to acquire those guys because teams that have them tend to keep them.

“He’s still got the prime of his career ahead of him here. It’s a very important position I think for us to have somebody. cheap bike jerseys It’s hard to break in at center. Like sometimes those 21-year-old centers, it takes them a little bit. He’s already gone through that learning curve. He’s sort of ready to take on a big role on the team.”

Bowman made sure Anisimov was interested in a contract extension before the trade, and the two sides agreed on a five-year, $22.75 million extension, which runs through the 2020-21 season. Anismov’s agent Mark Gandler didn’t have to sell his client much on the Blackhawks either.

“Just like Stan was looking for a match for his team, we were looking for a match for Artem,” Gandler said. “We felt, knowing the organization well, we felt that it would be a match. It was a no-brainer to put it together.”

The trade came at a perfect time for Anisimov. He felt a change was needed after three seasons with the Blue Jackets. Last season was especially frustrating for him because of injuries. He missed two months of the season because of a torn triceps muscle.

And his numbers also dropped as he had seven goals and 27 points in 52 games — down from 22 goals and 39 points in 2013-14. He already has eight goals and 14 points in 20 games this season.

“It’s a great opportunity to start over,” Anisimov said. “It’s like a new chapter in my life to get traded here. It’s obviously like a good team, like everyone wants to play on this team. I was happy.”

The Blackhawks have had a revolving door at center on the second line in recent years. Since coach Joel Quenneville decided to put Kane and Jonathan Toews Jerseys on separate lines in 2013, Kane has played with an assortment of centers. Dave Bolland was his main center in the 2012-13 season, Michal Handzus in 2013-14 and Brad Richards Jerseys in 2014-15. Altogether, Kane played with 10 centers in those three seasons.

Richards and Kane clicked last season, but Quenneville wasn’t always sold on Richards’ defensive game. Richards didn’t get a long look at second-line center until nearly 20 games into the season. Anisimov earned Quenneville’s trust in that respect in the preseason.

“I think we liked him right away,” Quenneville said of Anisimov. “I think that line had a little bit of chemistry right off the bat being together. I think it’s an important position for us, and he’s been a good fit. But we like his overall game, not just with the puck. Defensively, he’s been very useful.”

St. Louis Blues coach Ken Hitchcock also acknowledged the cheap jerseys defensive part of Anisimov’s game before a recent meeting with the Blackhawks. Hitchcock even went as far as comparing Anisimov to another Blackhawks forward who is respected for his all-around game.

“I think he’s just a solid two-way player,” Hitchcock said. “He’s a lot like [Marian] Hossa. He’s a guy, he doesn’t make mistakes. He’s smart on the ice. He’s smart [with] positioning. Whoever he’s playing with, because he manages the middle of the rink so well, he’s going to [make] look good. He fits with those guys because he manages ice. He’s more than willing to go down low and work in his zone and help out. I think he surprises people with his determination. He’s a strong player, goes to the net hard. He’s just a good add.”

Editor’s Picks

Powers: Blackhawks’ Panarin not letting language barrier hold him back

Despite coming to Chicago as a rookie without a lick of English, Russian winger Artemi Panarin is finding a home on the Blackhawks’ No. 2 line.

Among those many little things Anisimov does this season, he translates between Kane and Panarin, who is also Russian and speaks very little English. Anisimov has felt at home with the Blackhawks partly because he’s had fellow Russians Panarin and Viktor Tikhonov as teammates. The three of them often hang out.
The second line’s early success, of course, has also helped Anisimov’s transition to a new team. He has found playing alongside Kane, who leads the Blackhawks with 31 points, and Panarin, who is second on the team with 21 points, to be easy.

“It’s simple,” Anisimov said. “I think it’s simple because everyone brings something to the table on the ice. We just connected somehow when we played.

“[Kane] has a great skill obviously. He’s one of the most dangerous guys in the league. He sees the ice so well. He can make plays. He can do whatever on the ice, just play the game. I knew [Panarin] a little bit before. I know what he’s capable of doing and it’s helped me here how he plays. They’re kind of similar players in most aspects. I have fun playing with those guys.”

As for what Anisimov brings to that table, he didn’t have an answer again.

“I don’t know,” Anisimov said. “Just do something. Just play hockey, you know.”

Kane and Panarin know.

“I hope that I magically wake up and I feel great,” said Deng, who is averaging 10.3 points.

Barring that, Green will get a third straight start. He earned it after scoring a season-high 25 points while hitting 8 of 14 from the floor in Friday’s 97-78 win at New York. He was also effective defending Carmelo Anthony, who missed his manchester city jersey cheap final eight shots and finished with 11 points.

Deng wasn’t surprised by Green’s defensive effort.

“We know Gerald can do that,” he said. “Any time you can put him out there and he can get you 20. He’s a great scorer. He gives us a different look. We said it from the start that this is a deep team. It’s good that when guys are out or not playing great that we got guys who are ready to step up.”

That hasn’t always been the case with Green, who is on his eighth team since being drafted 18th overall by Boston in 2005. He’s missed six games this season after being hospitalized following an incident at his apartment. He was suspended by the Heat (10-5) for two of those for conduct detrimental to the team.

“What I do have to do, which is a requirement to wear this jersey, is to go out there and keep playing defense and that’s what I’m going to do,” Green said.

That attitude fits in with Miami yielding an Eastern Conference-best 91.7 points per game, a big reason cheap jerseys the team is atop the Southeast Division and 8-2 at home.

Dwyane Wade is averaging 22.3 points during the Heat’s three-game home winning streak. He scored 34 while connecting on 13 of 23 from the field, but that wasn’t enough in a 100-90 home loss to the Celtics (9-8) on March 9.

Boston is trying to avoid its first four-game road losing streak since Dec. 21-Jan. 3.
The Celtics are surrendering an average of 114.0 points and 51.6 percent shooting – 40.6 from long range – over the last three games, and they’re 0-7 overall when opponents reach the century mark.

After allowing a total of 158 points in home wins over Philadelphia and Washington, Boston fell apart in Sunday’s opener of this five-game trip. The team shot 40.9 percent from the field and 18.5 from beyond the arc while getting outrebounded 54-34 in a 110-91 loss at Orlando.

“It’s not just one guy, all five guys on the court were lacking,” said forward Jae Crowder, who had 12 points. “They came up with every loose ball and every offensive rebound they got, they scored on or so it seemed. We have to get better on that.”

Isaiah Thomas leads Boston with 21.2 points per game, but he’s totaled 34 while making 10 of 29 from the floor over the last two on the road. The guard scored 25 points at Miami in March but only mustered four in a 93-86 home defeat later that month.Sports & RecreationBasketballMiami Heat JerseysBoston Celtics JerseysGerald GreenLuol Deng

“Congrats to [Keuchel] for winning the American League Cy Young!!” Price wrote on Twitter after the BBWAA announcement was made on MLB Network. “He was my pick and I think the writers got it right!!”

Price is the sixth pitcher in MLB history to finish top three in voting for the award after getting traded midway through the season. He joins: Rick Sutcliffe (first in 1984), Rick Reuschel (third in ’87), Bert Blyleven (third in ’85), Tom Seaver (tied for third in ’77) and Sal Maglie (second in ’56).

According to FanGraphs, Price led the AL with a 6.4 WAR, was fourth with 225 strikeouts and fifth with a 1.08 WHIP. He was instrumental in helping Toronto reach the postseason for the first time since 1993, going 9-1 with a 2.30 ERA in 11 starts for the Blue Jays.

Keuchel had the edge in innings (232 vs. 220 1/3), opponents’ batting average (.217 vs. .230) and walks/hits per innings pitched (1.02 vs. 1.08). Price had more strikeouts (225 vs. 217), a higher WAR (6.4 vs 6.1) and a lower ERA (2.45 vs. 2.48).

“For me, I have that good fastball command,” Price said during the BBWAA Awards show on MLB Network. “Being able to throw that fastball, in, out, up, down, just being able to really command my fastball. I feel like those are the times that I put up my best games, or have my best stretches.”
Price was looking to become the fourth pitcher in Toronto history to win the Cy Young Award. Pat Hentgen was the first in 1996 and was later followed by Roger Clemens (1997-98) and Roy Halladay (2003). With a second-place finish in voting, Price is seeking a lucrative long-term contract through free agency.

Congrats to @kidkeuchy for winning the American League cy young!! He was my pick and I think the writers got it right!!— David Price (@DAVIDprice14) November 18, 2015

The Vanderbilt product has been dealt at the non-waiver Trade Deadline during each of the previous two years. In 2014, Price went from Tampa Bay to Detroit, and this year, Price was Toronto’s prized acquisition for the stretch run in a trade with the Tigers. Price enjoyed each of his spots along the way, but more than anything else right now, he’s looking forward to some stability. Price gets second in AL Cy Young David Price finishes second in AL Cy Young voteDavid Price led the league in ERA and had an 18-5 record with the Tigers and Blue Jays to finish second for the 2015 BBWAA AL Cy Young Award

“Absolutely, just knowing that you’re going to be somewhere for an extended period of time,” Price said. “Whenever Trade Deadlines and the offseason rolls around, you don’t have to worry about where you’re going to be. You know where you’re going to be for however many years you sign for and that’s definitely comforting.”

Cheap NFL Jerseys

Author: Xiao deep, NFL Chinese official website columnist, NFL commentator tournament

When Richard Sherman blankly straight ahead, appeared on the television screen, a group of his defense data: cheap nfl jerseys free shipping opponents passing touchdowns 0, 0 yards opponents to advance the ball, allowing opponents to complete mlb shop promo code 0 passing hellip; hellip; guarding his opponent to the direction of the ball 0 times. Significantly 4 0, the most terrible data sheet.

However, such data may not be able to interpret all the game-winning mystery. Defense, running attack, the home, the Seahawks win three treasure. This victory is not unusual equation, it is worth pondering is the defending champion took a new winning weapon: Percy Hal Man.

Hal Man fame for many years, its speed, the overall capacity of the Union as early as the team is known. Vikings aside that experience aside, the last Super Bowl, he has let his Denver Broncos gotten worse. But wound up Hal Man recovering from major injuries, more particularly the killer is not the role of conventional weapons in the Seahawks offensive team debut. And this opener, Hal Man assume that the task team attack propeller.

Ball forward 59 yards, advancing the ball 41 yards rushing, 60 yards back to attack advancing, Hal Man pretty enough to surrender the respondents. Diversification using this offensive weapon, give full play to its speed advantage, is the basic idea of ​​the Seahawks coaching staff. With Hal Man Almighty, supplemented Wilson can pass good at running, plus Lynch on the ground strong strategic deterrent and lethal tactics, the Seahawks offensive pursuit of tactical surprise to the full realization of the general idea.


This idea is the core concept of the art of war said ldquo; surprise, unexpectedly rdquo ;, in the most unexpected direction opponents in the most unexpected ways to attack, to create a local numerical superiority and the offensive most want to see on the bit combinations. Alone game, the Seahawks multiple use deceptive tactics, and achieved good results.

For example, in the first half of that Locket touchdowns. Wilson Pretend handover ball to Lynch, the Packers are the main attraction to the right of the Seahawks defense forces to attack the group. Then he put on a posture to be washed away their own, so the Packers defensive second-tier players stepped forward to block, resulting in Loket unmarked situation, then complete the pass.

Another telling example is Hal several attacks before the start of the text, nfl shop promo code move to the right, or after advancing the ball from outside attack from the left set of their own, or nfl jerseys cheap check for other tactical teams. This varied attack routine once played the Packers overwhelming.

Of course, the sudden need for tactical offensive efficiency in a stable basis. Lynch turned ldquo; beast mode advancing 110 yards rushing, 2 rushing touchdowns, rushed the ball an average of 5.5 yards every advance), and Wilson efficient passing performance (two passing touchdowns, four Wei score 110.9) is crucial to the team’s victory. If the team can limit Lynch’s ground offensive, how to deal with the Seahawks will be a spectacle.

In addition, the Seahawks need to be able to maintain long-term health of Hal Man. His career has never played a season to all screenings of the first episode, something would have happened if the team’s offensive power will be greatly reduced. In a sense, Hal Man’s injury might be the biggest rival Seahawks offensive group encounter.

While the Packers, the injury has become one of their biggest enemy. Reimbursement of the main defensive spikes Raj season, the main offensive tackles Bugera again in today’s game, limped off early. The Packers offensive line is one of the weakest, after the loss of Bugera, soldiers available is more limited.

But the injury is not a decisive factor in the packaging field Gongben total defeat. Inadequate protection quarterback, missed tackles, second missing people, these are the last season, there have been an old problem. Especially in the third quarter, the Packers almost all the problems together outbreak, let them in the game’s most critical strategic nodes are gradually throw off the Seahawks.

Today’s commentary I mentioned, common weakness is that the Seahawks and Packers offensive line’s pass protection. In contrast, the Seahawks have long to short attack he’s on Rogers pressure throughout the audience, while the Packers pass rush is a lack of continuity. Thus, the Seahawks have long been controlled tempo, so many problems the Packers defense group broke even more thorough.

And issues like defense group is worth noting, is ineffective ground attack. Played well last season, running back Resistencia opponents completely suppressed (12 times rushed the ball 34 yards promoting, advancing an average 2.8 yards every time), leading the team had to rely on the passing attack, pass protection also will increase the pressure up front great.

Although just a sophomore, but Lacey Packers offensive group of great significance: to make the team run pass tends to balance, so that the true mass fake run tactics to get better use; high frequency in the team to take the offensive strategy under the Lacey’s presence can also provide the necessary power. In order to play a game to determine the trend of the season Lacey fair enough, but in the other teams are more cheap authentic nfl jerseys familiar with the characteristics of his situation, the Packers need to plan ahead.

Nor is it fair, is a game of victory or defeat to judge the results of the season for both teams. If the Seahawks in the Super Bowl defending the goal, that victory is only a small step on the road champion only. While the Packers have a super quarterback of this team, road loss to the Seahawks, but also not to far we throw ldquo; not much time left for them rdquo; this saying when.

Author: ARodgers, NFL Chinese official website columnist

Perhaps NFL opener rdquo; this thing, inherently has a sexual orientation.

Recalling the opener nearly five years, in 2009 when the Steelers win over the Titans plus, both sides played extremely ugly, mistakes again and again, creating a low score fight. In that season, the Steelers Titans both ugly edge in playoff contention down.

2010 opener, the league schedule Favre uncle to challenge the mighty saints, which is the playoffs 09 season classic drama, but the new season opener this completely without the chic and elegant that playoff, both sides defense and the road under the foot work, the Saints slightly better, take away the victory, but the end result of the season, the Saints scored 11 wins but only won the National League wild card, lost the final in Seattle division title in seven wins Seahawks, while the Vikings is bad, get six wins Division cellar of the season, which led directly to retire Favre uncle postseason.

2011 opener, the defending champion Saints became hostessing off, they and the new defending champion Packers staged a tactical high quality offensive war, the offensive and defensive sides Secret combination meter plus 10 touchdowns, the Packers blocked Saints last counterattack, remove the game. After this Huashan Mountain sides with the end of his strength, and then they were arrogant in the regular season, respectively scored 15 wins and 13 wins, but both fell on the National League Division Series.

In 2012, the league arranged for 11 seasons ldquo; rdquo ;, the regular season battle against the giant cowboy drama. Popped a cowboy town teenager Terry Kevin Auger, relying on his outstanding play, the Cowboys remove the game, good comeback last season the Giants ultimately failed to re-staged comeback show. The end result of the season, the Giants tough losing streak, did not realize comeback season. The cowboy has once again fell to the ldquo; the regular season battle rdquo ;.

2013, due to the city MLB team the Baltimore Orioles to fully prepare for the playoff contention, crows away only to challenge the in-form, struck the first blow of the Broncos, the game eventually evolved into the Broncos offensive group training performances, and crow competition is far less than the opponent seems fully prepared. Crow devastated final attack to win the season is far from a despot. The Mustang is a triumph swept the regular season, then lost the Super Bowl is something.

This year’s opener, 16 to 36, the Seahawks beat the Packers at home without firing a shot, the game in the future history will account for how high status? This fall may not, after all, this is just a normal cheap nfl jerseys china regular season, but the match-ups, and we seem to be able to see some of this season’s trend of both sides, then we take a look at the game:

Seahawks in the starting lineup is basically not much surprises, basically determines the main preseason. The Packers side, the main center Te Leite JC (JC Tretter) injury, rookie Corey Linsley Not surprisingly the top up, while another rookie Richard Rodgers unexpected starting lineup.

Packers first wave of attack to stabilize the main, although the use of several non-huddle offense, but they rushed the ball and dominated the middle road, the Packers several care front and center for the Seahawks defensive tackle who dogged, plus Eddie Lacey’s suddenly left and right, the Packers offensive impressive road, but to the third gear, the Seahawks excellent marker let Aaron Rodgers no alternative but to wait for the ball captured and killed.

The first wave of the attack can be seen rich Seahawks offensive coordinator of the idea that they did not like the beginning as predicted from the middle to force a hard punch, but were tempted by the different types of passes, paper account for a very leading role in several fast ball let demonstrated little ingenuity. If it were to get rid of unfinished Brad Jones steals, if not Maike Dan Daniels collision punt hand, the Seahawks will not rely on a free kick early lead.

The Packers then launched a wave of counterattack, Rogers constantly looking , Landau and Eddie Lacy, for the first time to become the Seahawks punt return man Earl Thomas appeared at the time to get rid of abandoned pick play, nba shop promo code packing Workers grab mistakes, bang touchdown! This process can be seen clearly, Rogers to focus on the other side of the second attack, three horn guard Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane who, this strategy even let Packers Seahawks lead home!

Seahawks then quickly counter-attack, and this time they have been transferred back to the road last season, the offensive-oriented model, Man took over the game, Harvin first ldquo; slipped back nhl shop promo code door rdquo; title after gold ball Rush let the Seahawks get big yardage, but then the Seahawks played the most exciting time in this field with: Russell Wilson and Lynch pretending to punch the ball and use the option to read, which makes the left side of the Packers cornerback Sam Shields at face value, they should let go of the outer marker over Ricardo Lockette, then quickly threw the ball Locket Wilson, who break through the security guard Packers Haha Clinton Dix (HaHa ClintonDix) grapple completed touchdown! NBC commentator Chris Colin Cosworth noted that such tactics can often be seen at the American University stadium in the NFL where it is not common. Seahawks took less than three and a half minutes to complete immediately ahead!

Then the Packers played the audience the most beautiful wave of custom nfl jerseys cheap attacks, Rogers in the audience of more than 130 db harsh conditions began to use no huddle offense, when they saw each other after the posture assumed raid can quickly spot adjustment, change won the first offensive attack into the road, but this time the Seahawks defense group reluctantly getting hit state, offensive guard on the road Kanmu money left escapement pale yellow pull right, whether on the road or in pass defense all show surplus-class status, the Packers can only rely on a free kick to tie the game. It is worth mentioning that this wave of beautiful attacking them, Everett Rogers hit the rookie right tackle Bryan main Bryan Bulaga, a former first-round pick Derek Sherrod Ruti served right Tackle heavy responsibility, which became an important turning point in the game.

Next, the Seahawks offensive pavement slowly into the track. Whether it is the middle sudden strong or Poxi Ha piecemeal text interspersed around the face of the Packers defense is often able to find the gap, out big yardage. The reason is simple, the Seahawks offensive line dominated the cheap nfl jerseys battle front, plus use Seahawks tight end or fullback important stop on the point of attack tactics, but also the Seahawks took about three minutes, as the Seahawks took Lynch Under the lead of rushing touchdowns. Then halftime scattered on both sides of the attack.

The second half was served, the Seahawks offensive continue to wreak havoc road, outside of helplessness Packers pass rush put up the intensity slowly, Wilson is difficult to comfortably completed pass, the Seahawks can immediately put the ball right back to the Packers. Then the second half of the first file Packers offensive, Rogers saw the ball left Nelson appear neutral, the ball came out at once, you can just renew ho in the offseason about Nelson appears to get rid of some of the ball should not miss the ball just bounced into the hands of Macksville, the first half was struggling with the Maxwell Nelson finally steals against the first out of the mouth of foul smells! Then, thanks to the Packers outside linebacker Nick Perry capping pass, the Seahawks can only play into the free kick, the score expanded to 20 than 10.

The next attack, the Packers gradually discover that they can hardly get any benefits from the road, only to gradually put pressure on his shoulders to send Rogers, Rogers also be really powerful, like a ballet dancer actor performance in a pocket , complete with a variety wriggled incredible pass, pass rushing defensive front pressure Seahawks growing, no matter who stood outside almost every time to Rogers cause trouble, and finally, in the Packers glass slide The fourth gear attack, Seahawks defensive end Cliff Ivor Lille breakthrough Packers right tackle Derek Sherrod bench, complete sack.

Seahawks still carried on the road then raging, passing sluggish state, and soon the ball right back to the Packers, Packers re counterattack opportunities. This time, they began to attack from the side line 10 yards, but the Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett points out, he once again exceeded Sherrod protection, brushed a hand Rogers pass, then Sherrod help in the end zone clinging to the ball inside, let the Seahawks get a security.

Subsequent offense, the Wilson seems to have to find a way to break through the Packers defense, look for some of the more simple passing target, and then supplemented by powerful breakthrough in the middle Lynch invincible. When Wilson was faced with the risk of collision of the raid, he deftly pass the text to find completed the first attack, and then supplemented Lynch could not pull dragged on a strong rushing touchdowns! Points difference has widened to 29 than 10.

Packers abandon it? Beginning of the fourth quarter they give a negative answer, Rogers in the face of relatively conservative area Seahawks defense, passing target selection blameless, can find a wide receiver when Nelson let go cheap nike nfl jerseys beating Macksville, If you can not find the target, then Rogers have the ability to get the ball to run lightweight hand guard, let them self-attack, but the Seahawks strategy is very simple, do not give up long yardage, the Packers have the ability to short yardage grinding death them, even if the Packers can get a touchdown, but also wasted a lot of time. Packers road and passing the final combination of extremely efficient offensive play, Rogers ran pocket passer also timely find Cobb end zone. But then the two-point conversion, the Seahawks defensive end O’Brien Schofield (O 39; Brien Schofiled) is breaking the Sherrod, a pass interference to Rogers. The score was reduced to 1629.

9 and a half left in the game, the Seahawks rest of the work is to use efficient offensive slowly to stall for time, spend Packers fight. Under normal circumstances, there are roads defensive intensity tough defense group will use the other side of the offensive group early exit, but today it can not be regarded Packers ldquo; there is strength in defense group rdquo ;, cheap stitched nfl jerseys they cheap nfl jerseys from china were short passes and powerful road Seahawks advancing constantly tortured and eventually be a pretend Lynch rushed the ball to the offensive, Wilson deft ball to unmarked fullback Derrick Coleman, the latter into the end zone, touchdown! Seahawks with a wave length of seven minutes is not only offensive touchdown, but also let fly game time, 36 to 16, the outcome was completely kill the suspense!

Before I wrote three noteworthy focus on forward-looking, the next we look at these three battle re-focus:

Rogers nor Dengxianzhibei, after years of experience, he’s passing the ball and passing selection has been getting more Transformation, his running ability can be offensive opportunities rsquo; fabricated lsquo ;, a game if he can some stage get comfortable passing environment, and completed a series of passes, then the Packers probably get a lot of opportunities to score in limited. rdquo;

Rogers considered before in the face of prospective Seahawks pass defense group will complete a row, the reality competition point of view, the audience is his main target pass both Nelson and Cobb took over, the number of times they pass to account for the total 2/3 of the number of passes in the end they won a total of 141 yards and a touchdown. Richard Sherman played a complete game after the discovery, all of your data is 0, Rogers simply not look at him, staring at Macksville and play, this is the Packers in genius passing arrangements.

Sherman lineup only marker on the left, then the Packers use the principle of Tian Ji’s horse, let III catcher gold Jarrett Boykin and tight end Andrew boast Erle Si AndrewQuarless both false catch point to the left of the Sherman . Pair And the strongest point of the ball on the left side and two slots for the Seahawks to focus on combat. Packers strategy a major success, but that is the price authentic nfl jerseys cheap Macksville cheap chinese nfl jerseys steals this strategy should pay to use.

Rogers last season’s pass hit rate of 66.6%, but the face of the pass rush pressure, the hit rate will be reduced to 41.8% immediately. So the importance of this field Seahawks pass rush is not self-evident. For the Packers, the Seahawks defense team wanted to find gaps in the passing attack, a good pass protection is the first step. rdquo;

Prospects in once said, the Packers want to conquer the Seahawks from passing, we must do a good job protecting the ball, the reality of how the results? Brian Braga’s departure is a great loss, his passing ability to protect class, when his presence Seahawks defensive end on the left side of the red pass silently. Derek Sherrod can put this big colander after Ivor Lille fourth gear sack, manufacturing Bennett off the ball, Schofield’s two-point conversion pass interference, which is the key to make the Seahawks defense several times less lost nearly 10 points for the Packers, the Braga injuries is that they did not expect, and Sherrod pit father of the performance of the game turned out to be caused by such a big influence, but they did not expect his debut for subsequent defeat foreshadowed.

to fully restrict the Seahawks offense, the Packers are the only way out: on the road so as not to lose too many defensive yardage, forced the Seahawks beat stalls long yardage, so as to reflect the Packers defensive line after the other good manufacturing mistakes advantages. The Seahawks most want to see is: torn from the pavement defense, reducing pressure on the quarterback to stabilize the offensive to destroy cheap nfl jerseys paypal each other, as they often do in the last few seasons that. If the Packers can Seahawks offensive pavement limited to 120 yards, then even field ldquo; great rdquo; strategic victory. rdquo;

The early part of the game, the Packers as forward said, can defend the attack some roads, but also allows the Seahawks passing attack without success, which indicates the success of their defense. But the ability to defend this broken front, plus two AJ Hawk and Brad Jones was not very good at grappling ensure linebacker defensive intensity, the Packers could not the whole game, and ultimately the Seahawks on the road abuse 207 yards and two touchdowns, far beyond the 120 yards to the Packers before the target set.

Of course, critics have praised the Packers while the Seahawks today medals awarded should not only one person, but also to give this great team. Offensive front brothers also played occasional flash, James Carpenter care front and center Mark Siegel-en even played all-star nfl jerseys for cheap performance, it is their effort to re-open the line just to make the playoffs last year Lynch glory. In addition the use of cheap nfl jerseys usa offensive coordinator Darrell Bay Nashville many times Poxi Ha Wen laterally running attack attack style, playing the Packers puzzled.


Back to the beginning of the article topic, almost every opening game of the regular season will have on the future-oriented.

Seahawks here today to win by what? Pavement offensive, powerful punch pass, dominant backcourt marker. Today seems to win nfl jerseys cheap china last season mode and indistinguishable, and we expect more Gongshoupingheng also failed to show sufficient state. But for now the performance is concerned, most of the teams in the league Seahawks still insurmountable barriers, they are still dominant at home, no one can shake, the Seahawks can win more than 12 games in the regular season victory.

Packers side, they are still sharp offensive, defensive weakness. This season’s performance is also no difference, so this is why the final prediction of the season in the National League North Packers placed second reason. Apply ldquo; rdquo ;, law cask barrel can hold water height is not the highest cheap authentic nfl jerseys free shipping piece of wood, but in the shortest piece. From today’s game, Derek Sherrod, Brad Jones, haha ​​Clinton Dix obvious that several players off the team’s hind legs, aiming to win for a crack, they still have a long way to go. Fortunately, they have Rogers, the league’s best quarterback, they have built the cornerstone of the team, which is more important than anything else.
