The reason Carolina hasn’t operated a horizontal attack through the first six seasons of Newton’s career is that it hasn’t suited him.

Even as the victories piled up Chris Baker Authentic Jersey for the Philadelphia Eagles, there were reasons to have a few slivers of doubt. Or, at the very least, to wonder if they could maintain this level of play, a level that makes them the NFL’s best and most complete team.

Wonder no longer. The Eagles are very, very good. In an NFL season with a dearth of dominant teams, they might be closest thing that there is to one. They are the league’s No. 1 team and second-year quarterback Carson Wentz is the MVP by a whisker over his, shall we say, slightly more accomplished New England Patriots counterpart, Tom Brady.

We worked hard to be in this position and we earned it, wide receiver Torrey Smith said in the home locker room at Lincoln Financial Field after the Eagles upped their league-best record to 8-1 with Sunday’s 51-23 demolishing of the Denver Broncos. And it’s just that: We’re 8-1 right now. We still have a long way to go, a lot of work to put in and a lot of games to play. But we’re in a good spot right now.

We can’t take another step without mentioning Blake Bortles, the Jaguars passer who looked downright hideous throwing the ball in a white-knuckle 10-3 playoff win over the Bills last weekend — an ugly/beautiful game shipped to us from 1937.

He’s got a huge arm, a durable frame and perhaps an unwise amount of courage, but Newton hasn’t shown he can consistently fit passes into tight windows. Too many passes hit receivers’ feet or sail over their heads because Newton’s foot mechanics are inconsistent. And without improvement in that area, I fear the big guy can’t be great without the running game of his relative youth.
Limited Mens Boyd Gordon Jersey
Mens Aaron Jones Jersey After watching his film, I don’t think these limitations are about an ability to read the field. Newton mostly does a fine job knowing where to go with the ball. He sees and feels the blitz well, and doesn’t make an inordinate number of mistakes in the regular flow of his offense. And actually, it’s painting with too broad a brush to say: Cam Newton is inaccurate. Actually, when he puts loft on the ball, he can be extraordinary; he’s got excellent deep-ball touch. But on zipped throws, he’s wilder.

Five NFL players ejected as fights mar three games in Week 9

Football is an inherently violent sport, but outright brawls are relatively rare. That’s why Sunday was so unusual, as fights marred three games, with a total of five players getting ejected, an amount that was arguably too low.

Many observers felt that the Buccaneers’ Mike Evans should have been ejected for his role in a melee between his squad and the Saints. The quintet of disqualifications included the Bengals’ A.J. Green, the Jaguars’ Jalen Ramsey, the 49ers’ Carlos Hyde and the Cardinals’ Frostee Rucker and Haason Reddick.

LA Clippers head coach Doc Rivers and Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau believe the NBA should expand its All-Star rosters to 15 players on each side and would like to see the All-Star Game draft televised.

In addition to addressing a possible talent disparity between East and West, it also added some spice to the game and perhaps could ignite some competitiveness with teammates playing against one another. At least that’s the hope.

The Bucks started slow, then used a 24-10 in the first quarter to get back in the game that was tied at 53 at halftime.

Suns: Monroe played for the first time in three games, and his 30 minutes were his most since playing 34 on Jan. 3 against Denver. Coach Jay Triano said he wanted to give a break to Tyson Chandler, the 35-year old starting center averaging about 26 minutes over his previous nine games. He has been going hard, Triano said. We’ll give (Monroe) a chance to come back home where he was and see how he plays.

Bucks: Prunty stuck with a plan put in place by Kidd to rest Antetokounmpo for a second straight game because of knee soreness.

Turnovers punctuated sloppy stretches during the night, with the Bucks coughing up the ball 18 times. But Milwaukee also forced 22 turnovers, including four steals by the lightning-quick Bledsoe.

Tom Brady-authorized Super Bowl 51 ring up for auction

A facsimile Super Bowl 51 championship ring, ordered with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s approval, goes up for auction starting at 12:01 a.m. ET Monday, ESPN.com reported.

The Brady-authorized ring — projected to fetch a six-digit bid in the auction that ends Feb. 17 — features 260 diamonds, 23 fewer than the ones Brady, other players and members of the Patriots organization received, and is roughly 10 percent smaller, Goldin estimated, but it does carry the same engraving. The facsimile ring is valued at $29,700 on gemstones and gold alone, he said.

One certified Super Bowl 51 player ring has been sold privately for $75,000, SCP Auctions founder David Kohler told ESPN, though he didn’t disclose the player’s identity.

The Bears announced the firing of the veteran head coach on Monday. Fox’s firing was first reported by NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Thank you to all the players, coaches, the city of Chicago and Bears fans everywhere, your passion for the game and this team is unmatched in the NFL, Fox said in a statement released by the team. Today is the tough part of our results-oriented business but I wish the Bears organization the best for years to come.

The gloomy three-year stretch in Chicago dropped Fox’s career coaching record to 133-123. Fox had earned Super Bowl appearances in previous stops with the Panthers and Broncos. The Bears never sniffed even a .500 record under Fox.

Fox’s conservative coaching style consistently perturbed Windy City fans as the losses mounted. While Bears players rarely quit on the coach, Fox and his staff did little to lift the middling talents.patriots_143_4a7035a0a33d842f-180x180

The Falcons might have had a better shot at preserving the healthy lead they maintained for much of Super Bowl LI if they’d just run the ball.

Graham Gano tied a playoff record by draining a 58-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter, but he also pushed a 25-yard field goal wide right on the team’s second drive of the game.

Still, the Jaguars held off Pittsburgh’s second-half surge and put the game away with 61-yard and 75-yard touchdown drives in the fourth quarter.

Jacksonville will move on to play the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium next week.

Through Week 12, the 49ers had a 99 percent chance to end up with a top-five pick. Then Jimmy Garoppolo happened. Hard to imagine there will be any complaints out of San Francisco, though. They have found their franchise quarterback.

The Dolphins are another team with an interesting decision to make at quarterback after the Jay Cutler experiment didn’t work out. Do they hand the reigns back to Ryan Tannehill? Do they bring in some veteran insurance? Or do they draft another young QB with high upside?

That’s the first time that’s happened in over 20 years.

One definition of a superhero involves an exceptionally skillful or successful person. On Saturday, Marcus Mariota was the superhero that the Titans Authentic Marquette King Jersey needed.
Game Khairi Fortt Jersey Women's Alex Chiasson Authentic White Reebok Jersey: NHL Calgary Flames #39 Away
Game Joe Looney Jersey If you strictly look at Mariota’s passing numbers, it doesn’t look like anything exceptional. He completed 19-of-31 passes with two touchdowns and an interception. I expect after reading this, many of you will email me in a fury anyway.

But the box score could never tell you just how impactful and skillful he was on Saturday. One of his touchdown passes? It went to himself:

But Mariota’s heroics didn’t stop there. After helping lead the charge alongside Derrick Henry to an 18-point comeback, Mariota threw a block 锟斤拷 that many would call a bad business decision 锟斤拷 to seal the game:

There’s not many quarterbacks in the NFL that are going to be willing to make that block. And some that might be willing, well, simply couldn’t do it.

Belichick kept the right quarterback, by the way, and how could anyone doubt that after Brady threw for 138 yards and those two scores in the fourth quarter alone? The Jaguars had physically controlled the Patriots for much of this game. The underdogs had dominated the line of scrimmage and knocked out Rob Gronkowski with a shot to the head. Blake Bortles, of all people, had outplayed Brady, whose bloody run-in with Rex Burkhead’s helmet in Wednesday’s practice seemed a most unworthy end to a defending champ’s year.

My season can’t end on a handoff in practice, Brady told himself afterward. I didn’t come this far to end on a handoff.

He wasn’t sure he would play until a promising Friday turned into an encouraging Saturday, and by Sunday night a victorious Brady was wearing another gray AFC Championship T-shirt and publicly thanking the doctors, trainers and Alex Guerrero, the fitness guru and life coach Belichick demoted to second string. Perhaps that little plug for Alex was Brady’s second victory of the night.

Tom did a great job, and he’s a tough guy. We all know that, all right? Belichick said. But we’re not talking about open-heart surgery here.

Marcus Mariota took a sack from Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson, and Mariota clearly fumbled the ball in the process.

The Chiefs recovered, but it didn’t matter. Officials had blown the play dead, ruling Mariota down by forward progress.
Thomas Rawls Men's Nike Green Rush Vapor Untouchable Elite NFL Jersey - Seattle Seahawks #34 Jerseys
A forward progress call wiped out what looked like a Joe Flacco fumble when the Ravens faced the Patriots in 2016. But Flacco was actually moving forward when his progress was stopped. So when he was driven back and lost the ball, that ball was already dead.

The forward progress rule itself is pretty simple. But identifying what forward progress is, exactly, is about as subjective as figuring out what is and is not a catch.

That didn’t come to fruition with the Chiefs again failing to get off the launch pad in the postseason.

Elite Kids Kevin Pillar Jersey It feels dramatic to pin a player’s reputation on a single game, but Smith’s story is nearly written. He was the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft 13 years ago and for almost every other player, there isn’t a chance at this point Kevin Hayes Authentic Jersey in a career to rewrite things.

For Smith, that story is of a player who has been able to lead teams to the playoffs with efficient, mistake-free football but never any further. His only trip to the Super Bowl came as a backup to Colin Kaepernick in 2012 after Smith led the 49ers to a 6-2-1 record in nine starts in the regular season.

It hasn’t changed in Kansas City where he’s done enough to get the Chiefs to the postseason but never over the hump.

The Steelers need him in order to make the stalking Jaguars defense retreat. Every defense is concerned about passing bombs being tossed over their heads and, in Brown’s case, his catching the ball in space and darting for devastating yards after the catch. If Brown is in and healthy, the Jaguars will have to take a step back, first. If Brown is not a threat, that Jaguars first step will often be forward. As pesky as this Jacksonville defense is, that makes a critical difference.

Re-signing Donald is going to be a top priority, but the Rams already picked up his fifth-year option so he’s not going anywhere for now. And that leaves much more havoc to be wreaked in Los Angeles.

As John Fox said this week, Mike Glennon is still the starter. But know this: The Bears wouldn’t be skittish about playing Trubisky like they may have been a month or two ago, and the staff will come up with a plan to continue his development in-season, likely by figuring creative ways to get him reps with the starters, in addition to his scout-team work, during game weeks. Clearly, the dynamic here has changed a little bit and that’s a credit to the work the rookie has done.

Players who stumble or fall when trying to stand will require a concussion evaluation in the locker room.

Newton stopped on his way to the sideline, and took a seat while it appeared that trainers were looking at his eye.

And even after that win over the Niners (Newton was up and down in that one), Carolina had to be careful with him. One week he threw on Wednesday and Friday and was off Thursday. Another, he was off Wednesday and threw Thursday and Friday. Another still he was off Wednesday and throwing light on Thursday.

“It’s like with a baseball pitcher,” Rivera said. “The thing everybody forgets with a pitcher, what happens when they have these problemsWell, you send them down, they go down to the minors for two, three weeks, you get them built back up, and then you bring them back to the majors. We don’t have that luxury, and we didn’t have the true training camp [with Newton] that we would’ve liked to.”

“Everyone is trying to figure out what is the best way to deliver the product, especially to a millenial age demographic,” he says. “If TV everywhere is the name of the game, the NFL needs to get to that place, where you have that sort of ability for a RedZone type channel, to take it with you wherever. You might see that change with the next TV deals.”

He put together the video tape lesson plan for each of those kids, making cut-ups that would help a kid out.

In the offseason Gruden studied the Top 200 college prospects for ESPN’s NFL draft coverage and produced his own film cutups for the enormously popular Gruden’s QB Camp, in which the coach heaped praise on quarterback draft prospects before picking apart their flaws on film and watching them squirm. When the show began, producers begged agents to bring Tim Tebow, Sam Bradford and others to the set. Over the years, it became a right of passage, with producers being forced to turn down quarterbacks who wanted to appear on the show for lack of time.

Eighteen years with Tom and 22 with Robert. It’s been great, Belichick said on WEEI Monday. I appreciate everything that Robert has done for me, the opportunities he’s given me and the support. I’ve been pretty lucky to have Tom as the quarterback for those 18 years, playing Derek Roy Authentic Jersey for 17. He’s a great player to coach and he’s done a lot for this team. He’s been a huge help for me personally.

I have a great relationship with both Robert and Tom, and I would throw in there, since it was part of the article, I feel like I have a good relationship with Alex, too.

An ESPN article published last week depicted Belichick’s relationships with the other three men as hostile. The report alleges Guerrero has been banned from the Patriots’ sideline and that he has changed Brady.

Limited Clint Dempsey Jersey Because of Guerrero’s heavy influence on Brady, the report also stated that is why Guerrero’s role has been more subdued with the team, which Belichick denied.

I think we’re talking about a lot of inaccuracies here, Belichick said. I respect Alex and I think I have a good professional relationship with him. I can’t speak for him, but I think he would say the same thing.

I think Cam Newton’s words of apology Thursday night were promising.

But none of us except Newton knows the deep-down sincerity of his apology for what he said to a female reporter on Wednesday. (When Charlotte Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue asked Newton about pass routes, Newton responded that it was funny to hear a female talking about routes.) Newton has been widely derided for his smirky 1981-era putdown. That’s all justified. I liked his apology, and it seemed sincere. But I’d make two points here.

It’s pretty simple, the Bears are not using Trubisky the right way. That is what leads our three takeaways.

It’s one thing to run a west-coast offense and it’s another to run an overly conservative one. The Bears are being far too careful with the 23-year-old QB. Over and over again, Trubisky is forced to throw slants, and short crossing patterns and little flares into the flat. He has essentially been turned into a poor man’s Alex Smith this year and that’s not how he should be used.

Give the young man a chance to throw some post patterns off of play action, let him release a post-corner route inside the 40, allow him to go through his progressions to the six route over the middle, just allow him to be what he can instead of using baby gloves on him.
