The Cincinnati Bengals have decided who they want their next head coach to be. According to multiple media reports http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-mark-walton-jersey , Cincinnati plans to hire Los Angeles Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor. Of course, the hire cannot become official until the Rams’ season is over, so we could be a few weeks away from the hire becoming official. As you can imagine, Twitter was buzzing following news that Taylor is on to Cincinnati. Here is a roundup of the best reactions from around the internet. Even if you don’t like the hire, at least it’s not Hue Jackson. And of course Womens Clint Boling Jersey , there will be plenty of talk on how Taylor is the first coach from the Sean McVay coaching tree to land a head-coaching job. Then there’s the fact that Cincinnati picked Taylor over Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, who many thought was the favorite for the job. Of course, feel free to add in your own reactions in the comments section.Who Dey! CINCINNATI (AP) — Andy Dalton isn’t surprised that the Bengals moved up in the fourth round to take a quarterback. He doesn’t feel threatened, either.New coach Zac Taylor has made it clear that Dalton is the unchallenged starter as the Bengals transition to a new offense. Cincinnati traded and moved up to take N.C. State’s Ryan Finley — a quarterback whose skills more closely resemble Dalton’s — in the fourth round on Saturday for a backup role.The Bengals hadn’t taken a quarterback so high in the draft since 2011, when they got Dalton in the second round. But Taylor made it clear to Dalton that the move doesn’t directly impact him.“Like they said Tyler Boyd Jersey White , they’re trying to create some competition as a backup and that’s why you bring him in,” Dalton said Tuesday after a workout. “They obviously liked him, felt like he fit this system, and we had to get our (quarterback) numbers up.”At the outset, Finley will compete with fifth-year veteran Jeff Driskel for the No. 2 spot. Driskel started the last five games last season after Dalton tore a ligament in his passing thumb.Dalton has two years left on his contract. Owner Mike Brown has raved about his leadership and performance http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-joe-mixon-jersey , even though the Bengals have yet to win a playoff game behind him. Brown has repeatedly pointed out that Dalton led the Bengals to the playoffs five straight seasons, a franchise record.Dalton hadn’t made contact with Finley as of Tuesday. He’s planning to mentor him and help him learn Taylor’s offense, which is being installed during offseason workouts.“I’m learning this offense as well,” Dalton said. “Obviously I’ll be able to help him because I was a rookie quarterback at one point. I was a rookie quarterback that started, so I had the experience of being there.”Perhaps the biggest intrigue on offense is how the line stacks up after the Bengals took left tackle Jonah Williams in the first round and guard Michael Jordan in the fourth.Current left tackle Cordy Glenn hasn’t played guard since college. It’s unlikely the Bengals would move Williams to a guard spot and put the rookie in an unaccustomed spot to start his career.The coaching staff hasn’t yet provided the linemen with any clues as to its plans. Players expect some experimentation in minicamp and training camp.“Nobody knows Jessie Bates III Jersey White ,” Glenn said. “I’m pretty sure they have a plan in place. They’re probably going to move a couple of guys around and see a couple of different lineups and see what they really have and what’s the best unit to put on the field.”The Bengals got Glenn in a trade with Buffalo before last season. He was limited by a back injury and started 13 games. He hasn’t played guard since he was at Georgia from 2008-11. He started 14 games at left tackle his senior year in college and has stayed at that position, so a move to guard would be a major adjustment.“It’s almost 10 years ago,” he said. “I don’t know. It will be interesting, for sure.”

Sunday was a tough one for the Bengals to stomach Cheap Michael Jordan Jersey , but it doesn’t change who they are. Entering Week 7, the Bengals are still leading the AFC North and are actually tied with the Patriots for the second-best record in the AFC, which would actually put them in position for a playoff first-round bye if the season ended today. So yeah, the sky isn’t falling in Cincinnati, at least not yet, and that’s evident in how the experts rank the Bengals in the latest power rankings. Several rankings even had the Bengals as a top-10 team, the highest being No. 7 at ESPN, who even gave Cincinnati a 50.5-percent chance of making the playoffs. Here are this week’s power rankings:ESPN: 7 (Last week: 6)Yahoo: 12 (Last week: 11)Bleacher Report: 12 (Last week: 9)Washington Post: 13 (Last week: 5)Sports Illustrated: 10 (Last week: 8)SB Nation: 8 (Last week: 4)Average ranking: 10.3Bengals Bytes (9/7): Jordan Willis looks to provide a pass rushing boost What national media are saying about the 2018 BengalsAs the Bengals begin the 2018 season this Sunday on the road against Indianapolis, the national media attention has increased following a strong preseason.Notebook: Bates goes from Lucky Lunch to Opening Day start; Injury updateBack in the summer of 2015, when Luck was the hottest thing in Indiana besides the 500 bricks after three straight Pro Bowl seasons in his first three NFL seasons Michael Jordan Jersey Womens , he sat down for lunch with a high school senior.

While watching the Green Bay Packers battle the New York Jets last Sunday in a game that ultimately meant little to both non-playoff contending teams Youth Jace Sternberger Jersey , the glimpse of a familiar face was caught on the MetLife Stadium sidelines between plays: former Green Bay outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene.After a three-year hiatus from the NFL, Greene returned to the league in a similar role coaching the outside ‘backers for the Jets in 2017 and remains on a defensive staff that, like Green Bay’s, may be on its way out in less than a week. In the midst of what has been a disappointing season from the Packers’ outside linebacking crew in generating pressure, seeing Greene on the sidelines evoked a sense of “what-if.” What if Greene had not surprisingly left Green Bay following the 2013 season, giving way to Winston Moss? Would the Packers’ defense be in a better shape now had there been continuity for the OLB unit, perhaps the most vital position in the 3-4 system?With the stability of Dom Capers as Defensive Coordinator spanning a wide range of years before and after Greene’s departure, that answer may not be as clear-cut as initially thought. Here are comparisons based on two important stats: sacks and quarterback hits.Kevin Greene (2009-2013)Greene oversaw a Packer linebacker corps that included a young Clay Matthews, who reached four Pro Bowls in a five-year stretch, but also a large number of undrafted free agents. Green Bay won a Super Bowl during the 2010 season, boasted a 15-1 record in 2011, and only tallied less than 10 wins once in that span. While some of those feats, as well as a top offense, could mask some of the Packers’ deficiencies on defense, Green Bay’s outside linebackers were not as dangerous during Greene’s tenure as one might think. The Packers, more or less, had a classic “bend-but-don’t-break” defense during Greene’s years in Green Bay White Jace Sternberger Jersey , but they really lacked a dynamic pass rusher opposite Matthews. Mike Neal’s five sacks in 2013 were the most for an edge rusher in that timeframe, with Frank Zombo, Dezman Moses, and Brad Jones a close second at four sacks apiece. In fact, a monumental reason why the Super Bowl champion Packers were able to become what they were in 2010 was due to the pass rush from other positions in Capers’ scheme. Cullen Jenkins brought seven sacks from the five-technique, while B.J. Raji added 6.5 sacks from the nose and Zombo notched his four as a rotational player on the other end from Matthews, who tallied 13.5. As seen below from Pro Football Reference, the Packers recorded Greene-era highs of 89 quarterback hits and 47 sacks during the 2010 season despite just 37 hits and 21.5 sacks from the outside linebackers. OLB Pass Rush Under Kevin GreeneYearTeam QB HitsTeam SacksOLB QB HitsOLB SacksClay Matthews SacksYearTeam QB HitsTeam SacksOLB QB HitsOLB SacksClay Matthews SacksBut outside the 2012 season, the Packers really struggled to get to the quarterback during Greene’s stint. The 2011 season was abysmal in that the entire defense registered only 29 total sacks and 70 total hits, with just 11 sacks and 42 hits coming from the outside linebackers. Really astounding was Greene’s last season in 2013 when the Packer defense was relatively all-or-nothing when rushing the passer. As a team, the Packers recorded 44 sacks among their 63 quarterback hits, with the outside linebackers producing 21 sacks on just 28 hits! As ESPN notes, “players who have a disproportionately high or low percentage of sacks per knockdown are likely to see their sack total rise or fall accordingly the following year.” That indeed was the case and will be mentioned below, but although Aaron Rodgers’ injury that season severely impacted time of possession, the Packers still struggled greatly to generate consistent pass rush outside of their sacks.Winston Moss (2014-2018)Although Rodgers was injured in parts of Moss’ tenure in Green Bay as well, the Packers’ outside linebackers became a much larger focal point of the pass rush.Moss was instantly aided by the addition of Julius Peppers in the 2014 offseason, finally giving the Packers a bookend rusher to help Matthews. Peppers gave the Packers 24.5 sacks over three seasons and was a catalyst for helping the Packers increase their quarterback hits and sacks overall. Excluding a shortened 2018 season http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authentic-brett-hundley-jersey , Green Bay never saw the OLBs record fewer than 53 quarterback hits under Moss’ leadership, a single-year total higher than any year under Greene. Four full seasons under Moss saw the Packers average 26.3 sacks and 58.3 hits from the outside linebackers compared to just 19.7 sacks and 41.1 hits under five seasons of Greene. OLB Pass Rush Under Winston MossYearTeam QB HitsTeam SacksOLB QB HitsOLB SacksClay Matthews SacksYearTeam QB HitsTeam SacksOLB QB HitsOLB SacksClay Matthews SacksWhile the acquisition of Peppers and emergence of Nick Perry certainly helped the Packers over the past five years, the pass rush improvement from the unit after the coaching change is staggering. Even in what was considered a “down” season in 2017, the Packers’ outside linebackers were still on par with any unit of Greene’s tutelage.And while the negative outlier of the 2018 season certainly has caused a stir among the Packer faithful, the Packers, by the numbers, have actually created more pass rush in the latter half of the decade from their OLBs than the former. This year, their production has merely reverted back to many seasons under Greene - seasons that many people on the surface may have considered the Packers’ glory days of the past decade. Final ThoughtsNeither Greene nor Moss were given many high-level prospectsBoth coordinators had the luxury of gaining high-impact players immediately. Greene with Matthews and Moss with Peppers. But outside of that, the talent level was marginal. Green Bay did draft two players with a premium draft pick to help Greene - Jones and Perry - but both provided inconsistent production or relatively none. Moss, on the other hand, was never given a high draft pick unless you count Fackrell in the third round. It is a perplexing concept, as the Packers have gone to the first-round cornerback well so many times over the past decade to alleviate defensive concerns, yet have neglected adding pass rushers. Unlike the New York Giants of the early 2010s or last year’s Philadelphia Eagles, the Packers were rather complacent with the pass rush group they had. A positive pass rushing season at outside linebacker, especially in Moss’ time, led to almost no new influx of talent at the position. That approach finally started to catch up to the Packers in 2017 when Peppers left as a free agent and in 2018 when they added little outside depth. This year’s crop of edge rushing talent in the draft could give the Packers a chance to right some of those wrongs.The impact of a proven free agent can lead to quick changesGreen Bay’s outside linebacker pass rush improved both immediately and dramatically when it welcomed Julius Peppers in 2014. Of course, the Packers did not strike the same kind of gold when they signed an aging Ahmad Brooks in 2017. But for a team like the 2018 Packers Ty Summers Jersey Mens , a proven commodity could help enact fast change. In free agency, younger players such as Jadeveon Clowney, Demarcus Lawrence, and Dee Ford could hit the open market in 2019. It has not been Packer-like to sign marquee free agents like these since the splashes of 2006, but the second year of Brian Gutekunst as General Manager could have a surprise in store.Moss might have had more talent to work with than Greene, but he ultimately cultivated the most position-specific results.Moss’ abrasive personality toward the end of his run in Green Bay was a distraction, but his units were either more or just as productive as any Packers outside linebacking crew of the past decade. I give Greene plenty of credit for trying to develop former undrafted free agents into contributors and former defensive ends like Aaron Kampman into edge-rushing linebackers. That Kampman recorded 16 quarterback hits in 2009 after standing up for the first time actually is quite remarkable. But in the end, Moss helped Perry and Peppers transition from ends to linebackers as well and made the most of the talent he was given, even if many Packer fans like myself did not realize or appreciate it. The Green Bay Packers’ running game is on a roll through 30 minutes at Lambeau Field today, helping lead the team to a double-digit lead on the Buffalo Bills in the teams’ week four matchup today.The Packers have a total of 89 rushing yards, and they are spreading the love around in the backfield. Aaron Jones leads in yardage with 39 and a touchdown on five carries, while Jamaal Williams has seven for 23 and Ty Montgomery has a pair of carries and 13 yards. Montgomery and Adams each have one reception as well, with Montgomery’s going for 43 yards and Jones’ for 17.All that and a solid first half for Aaron Rodgers early on equates to a solid lead for the Packers at the half. Touchdowns by Jimmy Graham and Aaron Jones plus a Mason Crosby field goal as time expired give the Packers a 16-0 lead at the break. The Packers will receive the second-half kickoff, as they won the coin toss and deferred.The Packers’ defense has held Buffalo to just 82 total yards in the first half. Josh Allen has completed five of 19 passes for 58 yards and an interception to Jaire Alexander.Feel free to also use this space to discuss this afternoon’s baseball action, with the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs locked in a tie for the NL Central lead.

The Green Bay Packers got a big 34-20 victory on Sunday over the Atlanta Falcons Ty Summers Jersey 2019 , giving Joe Philbin a win in his first game as the team’s interim head coach. It wasn’t a big win because the Packers are still in the thick of the playoff race, though they are still mathematically alive. Instead, it seems big for the confidence of the team, giving the players and fans belief that the problems the team had dealt with all season are indeed fixable.The Packers got big contributions from three reserves on the offensive line, however, as a trio of starters were made inactive just before game time. Although the line as a whole did allow four sacks, including three on third downs, they kept Aaron Rodgers clean in the second half and helped the team pick up nearly 140 rushing yards on the day.Here’s a look at the playing time from Sunday’s 34-20 Packers victory.OFFENSE (65 plays)QuarterbacksAaron Rodgers 64, DeShone Kizer 1Rodgers gave way to Kizer for a kneel-down on the final snap of the game. Other than that, Rodgers had a moderately efficient day, completing just under two-thirds of his passes by going 21-for-32 (65.6%). His 6.13 yards per attempt number won’t impress, but the important factor was that he kept the chains moving on third downs.Rodgers completed five of six pass attempts on third downs for four conversions and added a pair of scrambles for first downs as well. The Packers did allow three third-down sacks in the first half, but the overall 7-for-13 conversion rate was a huge step forward.We also must mention Rodgers setting the new record for pass attempts without an interception, as he has still thrown just one all year. Still, there were two passes that he could have been picked off on during Sunday’s game, including one that hit Deion Jones in the hands a few throws before he did indeed set the record. But it’s still fun to see one of the NFL’s all-time best at avoiding turnovers get a record like this, so congrats to Rodgers on setting the new mark!Running BacksAaron Jones 42, Jamaal Williams 24, Dan Vitale 2Williams started the game for the Packers, which seemed bizarre and inexplicable at the time. However, it may have had something to do with the pace of the opening drive, as the team seems to prefer him to Jones when in no-huddle or quick passing situations. Jones came on and dominated the snap count the rest of the way, however, and he ended up out-touching Williams 20 to 4.Jones was back over 4.5 yards per carry in this game, with 17 totes for 78 yards and a score. He added three receptions for 28 yards. Williams, meanwhile, carried the ball four times for 17 yards.Wide ReceiversDavante Adams 56, Randall Cobb 44, Equanimeous St. Brown 34, Marquez Valdes-Scantling 30, Jake Kumerow 6Adams had another 11 targets, catching seven balls for 81 yards and a touchdown. He should have had another 30-yard reception, but it was wiped out by a pass interference call on Jimmy Graham on a pick play. St. Brown seems to be slowly catching up to MVS, as the two have been about even on snaps and targets in recent weeks. Cobb returned to relevance this week Color Rush Ty Summers Jersey , thanks in large part to his 24-yard touchdown reception on the play that gave Rodgers the record.Tight EndsJimmy Graham 47, Lance Kendricks 17, Marcedes Lewis 16, Robert Tonyan 7Graham caught just two passes for 13 yards in this game, though one did move the chains on third down. The rest of the tight ends were swapped in and out largely in blocking situations, as none had even a single target.Offensive LinemenLucas Patrick 65, Jason Spriggs 65, Corey Linsley 65, David Bakhtiari 64, Justin McCray 62, Alex Light 3, Adam Pankey 1With three starters out, Patrick, Spriggs, and McCray came on to start and provided nearly full games. As mentioned earlier, the group did allow three sacks on third downs in the first half, two of which led to field goals. However, the second half was much better, as they did not allow a single sack after halftime.McCray missed three snaps early on for a minor issue, but returned to play the remainder of the game. Patrick, meanwhile, endeared himself to his quarterback by sticking up for him after a borderline hit on a scramble by defensive back Brian Poole. Patrick got into a scrum with several Falcons defenders and won some major points for his protective instincts.DEFENSE (71 plays)Defensive LinemenDean Lowry 56, Kenny Clark 51, Tyler Lancaster 22, Montravius Adams 12Interestingly, Clark did not show up on the stat sheet in the game despite playing about 70 percent of the team’s snaps. However, this may have been by design by the Falcons; instead, Lowry and Lancaster picked up much of the tackles among this group with three apiece. Lancaster had one big TFL on a swing pass, and Lowry had a hit on quarterback Matt Ryan.Outside LinebackersKyler Fackrell 57, Clay Matthews 55, Reggie Gilbert 30Matthews had one of the Packers’ two sacks of Ryan on the day, with the second going down as a “team sack” in the stat sheet. He also had a second tackle for loss and a second hit on Ryan in a fairly solid performance. Fackrell also had a TFL and a hit on Ryan, with three total tackles, while Gilbert had just one solo stop.Inside LinebackersBlake Martinez 71 Cheap Ty Summers Jersey , Antonio Morrison 7It’s a refrain at this point; Martinez had double-digit tackles with 12 total. The Packers were able to use safety Josh Jones as a Nitro linebacker for much of this game, however, which we’ll get to shortly.We at APC still hope to see more of rookie Oren Burks down the stretch, however. These last few games could and should be good opportunities for developmental snaps for him.SafetiesTramon Williams 71, Kentrell Brice 65, Josh Jones 63, Eddie Pleasant 6Brice’s return allowed the team to largely keep Jones down in the box at Nitro linebacker, where he picked up five solo tackles and an assist. Brice had three and one for four total tackles, while Williams was held off the stat sheet despite not missing a snap.The fact that Brice was able to play, however, did really open up the possibilities for Mike Pettine, at least in terms of how best to use Jones. It was nice to see him flying around closer to the line of scrimmage once again.CornerbacksJaire Alexander 71, Tony Brown 59, Josh Jackson 56, Bashaud Breeland 23, Will Redmond 5While Williams and Brice primarily manned the safety position, the Packers’ corner rotation was strange early on. Breeland was arguably one of the stars of the game, with a pick-six and a fumble recovery, but he played fewer than a third of the game’s snaps. This reduced workload may be an effort to keep his snaps in check as he continues to work through a groin injury, however.Meanwhile, Alexander spent essentially the entire game matched up on Julio Jones one-on-one. He finished the day with ten solo tackles, one for loss, and a pass breakup — though he should have had two, if the Packers’ first replay review had been changed from a catch to an incompletion. Brown added five total tackles while Jackson had two solo stops, two pass breakups, and another defensive holding penalty. Despite missing 16 games over the past three seasons, Justin Houston remains a highly effective pass rusher who fills a massive void in the Packers defense."NFL Free AgencyFor Packers, Justin Houston is a risk worth takingDespite missing 16 games over the past three seasons, Justin Houston remains a highly effective pass rusher who fills a massive void in the Packers defense.CDTShareTweetShareShareFor Packers, Justin Houston is a risk worth takingThough the Green Bay Packers have weaknesses to address on both sides of the ball, the need to improve the pass rush inarguably ranks among the top priorities of the offseason. Longtime outside linebacker Clay Matthews hits free agency later this week, and fellow edge defender Nick Perry could join him should the team decide against paying his $4.8 million roster bonus. The loss of either or both would deplete an already shorthanded position group, forcing general manager Brian Gutekunst to spend an inordinate amount of his resources to restock.While the incoming rookie class features an abundance of enticing pass rushers, many will struggle to contribute early in their careers. That puts the onus on Gutekunst to explore free agency for veteran aid Ty Summers Jersey Womens , though that path contains complications as well. The franchise tag removed most of the top options from the market, leaving a handful of flawed free agents with overwhelming leverage. Even Dee Ford, a Pro Bowl edge defender limited by the tag, will likely cost a premium draft pick and a lucrative multiyear extension to acquire. The combination of high demand and limited supply has left the Packers and Gutekunst with no easy choices.But another possibility arose Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs announced the release of Justin Houston. The team reportedly made the decision earlier this month after failing to find a trade partner. Now, the veteran edge rusher has a head start in his search for a new home.Houston occupies a unique space among the available pass rushers. He doesn’t possess the long career runway offered by Trey Flowers yet has more recent production than Anthony Barr or Preston Smith. Houston generated nine sacks in just 12 games last season, a robust figure that would have ranked second on the Packers. More impressive still, his 54 total pressures in 2018 nearly matched his output from the year prior when he registered 62 over 15 games. When he plays, Houston can still produce at an extremely high level.If signed, Houston would immediately upgrade a Packers defense that too often relied on interior pressure and blitzes to generate a pass rush last season. After injuries decimated the line -- Kenny Clark, Mike Daniels, and Muhammad Wilkerson missed a combined 22 games in 2018 -- coordinator Mike Pettine lacked the horses necessary for an effective defense. An edge rusher like Houston, while not a cure-all at this stage of his career, diversifies Pettine’s personnel and reduces the burden to harass the quarterback on the rest of the defensive front.At the same time, availability has become a major concern for Houston. Knee and hamstring injuries have cost Houston 16 games over the past three years, the equivalent of a full season. Those issues, combined with an unwieldy contract paying $15.5 million this year and $17.5 million in 2020, undoubtedly contributed to the soft trade market the Chiefs encountered earlier this offseason. Now over 30 and four seasons removed from his last 16-game campaign, the risk of further injury only increases.Still, capable pass rushers always have appeal, and despite the Chiefs’ inability to trade Houston, a number of teams could pursue the veteran in free agency. That list includes the Packers, who not only can offer Houston a starring role in an aggressive defense but also now employ his former position coach. Mike Smith coached outside linebackers in Kansas City this past season and drew strong praise from Houston. When the team fired defensive coordinator Bob Sutton following the AFC Championship Game, Smith and other members of the staff left for opportunities elsewhere. With Smith situated in Green Bay, the Packers have a sizable recruiting advantage should they choose to use it.Of course, for the Packers to bring Houston aboard, the two sides need to agree on a price. The fact that teams balked at his previous cap numbers strongly suggests that his next deal will involve a steep pay decrease, perhaps falling below the $10 million threshold. Conversely, Houston could hold up Brandon Graham’s recent three-year, $40 million agreement as an example of what the 2019 market will pay a 30-year-old pass rusher. The two players share an agent, virtually guaranteeing that the new deal will arise in any negotiation for Houston.The Packers ultimately have more reasons to pull the trigger on Houston rather than balk at his injury history or contract demands. Rebuilding the pass rush requires more than just investing a high draft pick or two at the position, and Houston can immediately step into a starring role. Adding the former All-Pro, along with the healthy return of the defensive line and the incoming rookie class, should give Green Bay a chance to turn the unit around in short order.

HOUSTON (AP) — Houston’s impressive turnaround after a 0-3 start ended in disappointment with a loss to the Indianapolis Colts in the wild-card round.Still, the Texans remain optimistic about their future because they’re confident they’ve finally found their franchise quarterback in Deshaun Watson after years of misfires at the position.“Every position is important … but you have to have a quarterback, and we have a quarterback,” coach Bill O’Brien said on Sunday. “There’s no doubt in my mind that we have the type of person and the type of quarterback that you need here to win in this league.”Watson’s play has been a revelation for a team that has started 11 different quarterbacks since 2011. The 12th overall pick in the 2017 draft started each game this season after he was limited to just seven games as a rookie after tearing a knee ligament in practice.He threw for 4 D.J. Reader Jersey White ,165 yards and 26 touchdowns this season to become the second player in team history and first since Matt Schaub in 2012 to throw for 4,000 yards. He added 551 yards rushing and five touchdowns to become the first player to have at least 4,000 yards passing and 25 touchdowns and 500 yards rushing and five scores in a season in NFL history.He was disappointed that he was unable to move the offense effectively on Saturday, but is looking forward to what this team can do next year and beyond.“The organization, (its) future, it’s bright,” he said. “Hopefully I’m a part of it http://www.thetexanslockerroom.com/authentic-nick-martin-jersey , for sure, for a long time.”While the Texans know they’ll have Watson for the next few seasons, they have a big decision to make on the other side of the ball with defensive end Jadeveon Clowney becoming a free agent. The top overall pick in the 2014 draft shook off injuries that plagued the early part of his career to make the Pro Bowl in each of the past three seasons.Clowney joined J.J. Watt to form one of the league’s most fearsome pass rushing duos this season and he had nine sacks after having a career-high 9½ last season.O’Brien wouldn’t say what their plans for Clowney are, but he had plenty to say about his development as a player.“I think very highly of him,” O’Brien said. “I think he’s a disruptive player …when he feels good, health-wise, and he’s ready to rock and roll Andre Hal Jersey White , he’s hard to handle. Him in combination with J.J. and the other guys, it’s a tough front.”If the Texans can’t or don’t want to work out a long-term deal with Clowney they could use the franchise tag to keep him in Houston for one more season. Clowney said he hasn’t thought much about free agency, but that he’d like to remain with the Texans.“We were a lot better than what we played (Saturday),” he said. “Of course I want to come back and show everybody that with this team. But that’s up to them.”Along with getting Watson back after a season-ending injury, the Texans also received a boost from the return of Watt after he’d played just eight games over the previous two seasons because of injuries.The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year earned All-Pro honors in a season when he had 61 tackles, led the AFC with 16 sacks, had 25 quarterback hits Jeff Allen Jersey White , 18 tackles for losses and forced a career-high seven fumbles, which tied for the most in the NFL. It’s his fourth season with at least 15 sacks, which ranks second in NFL history behind Hall of Famer Reggie White, who had five.“The last two years all I wanted to do was just play,” he said. “I just wanted to play and not even necessarily at the highest level. I just wanted to play. Now it’s exciting to be back where I’m playing at a very high level and I say: ‘OK I don’t want to just play. I want to be dominant and great and the best.'”Also on Sunday, receiver Demaryius Thomas spoke to reporters for the first time since a season-ending Achilles tendon injury on Dec. 23. Thomas was traded from Denver in October after Will Fuller tore a knee ligament.The four-time Pro Bowler has one year remaining on a five-year, $70 million contract signed in 2015 and it’s unclear if the Texans will want to keep him on the roster with such a high salary.“That’s a tough injury J.J. Watt Jersey ,” O’Brien said. “He knows that. He’s (over) 30 years old. That’s not easy to come back from, but he’s going to work hard. He wants to play again. He made that statement to me, and we’ll see how it goes moving forward.”The Texans are also looking ahead to this year’s draft where they’ll have three picks in the top two rounds after not having a draft pick until the third round last year because they shipped their top two picks away to get rid of Brock Osweiler and trade up to get Watson in 2017.But O’Brien said he’d need a little time before he starts thinking about the future after how his team’s season ended on Saturday.“I’m not trying to overstate this (but) I felt terrible about (Saturday) that I couldn’t get that team to play better than they did,” he said. “That’s something that will stick with me for a long time, and I’ve got to figure that out. But definitely, at some point in time pretty soon here I’ll get a second wind and get excited about helping (general manager) Brian (Gaine) (with) … the draft.”

Geno Atkins won’t be playing in the 2019 NFL Pro Bowl.On Tuesday Hardy Nickerson Jersey , it was revealed that Atkins is dropping out of the game and he’ll be replaced by Ravens defensive tackle Brandon Williams. It’s unclear if Atkins actually has an injury or if he’s dropping out to avoid risking an injury in a joke of a game that doesn’t feature much, if any real defense. This is actually good news, especially after the whole Tyler Eifert debacle in 2016. Bengals fans would probably rather not see anyone playing in the Pro Bowl unless it’s a young guy playing in his first all-star game like Clayton Fejedelem Joe Mixon Jersey , who is a special teams alternate. Atkins, nor any veteran defender with as much wear and tear on his body as he has, should be playing in this game. The last thing the Bengals can afford right now is one of their best players being hurt in what’s effectively a pick-up game.

Which NFL prospect has flipped your opinion this offseason?"There’s nothing inherently wrong about admitting a mistake. In fact Jake Rudock Jersey , it’s a sign of humility and honesty. Too often people form and opinion and stand pat on it despite evidence to the contrary.This seems especially true of the NFL Draft. People convince themselves that there are only a couple ways a team should go with their pick and never open up to the possibility of another route. But, personally, sometimes a player I had previously thought of as a non-starter as a prospect suddenly appears to be more favorable as an option as I learn more information about the player. So today’s Question of the Day is:Which NFL Draft prospects has grown on you as a good option for the Detroit Lions with the eighth overall?My answer: T.J. Hockenson. I was never as adamantly against this pick as a lot of Lions fans were/are, but I’ll just say it now: I’m fully on board if the Lions decide to go with the Iowa tight end in the first round.Though I think the Lions have bigger plans for Jesse James than most people assume, the Lions’ depth behind him is absolutely terrifying. As Hamza pointed out this week, if James goes down, the Lions may be better off just playing without the tight end position—something they’d never actually do considering their commitment to the running game. While Hockenson isn’t superb at any individual aspect of his game, he’s very good at just about everything. He comes from a pro-style offense at Iowa, meaning his transition to the pros should take much shorter than the average tight end prospect—something Bob Quinn has specifically talked about this offseason. And if we’re being completely honest, the Lions offense could really use another offensive weapon. While the Lions defense is undeniably better than it was at this point last year, the offense is actually a little worse. Give me Hockenson, and I won’t put up a stink.Your turn.Tweets from https://twitter.com/PrideOfDetroit/lists/lions-coverage Following the draft as a fan is exciting Matt Prater Jersey White , but reacting to picks can be nuanced."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions NotesDetroit Lions AnalysisDetroit Lions TransactionsDetroit Lions Game RecapsNFL DraftDetroit Lions AnalysisDetroit Lions draft analysis: First 2 days filled with hits, missesNew,71commentsFollowing the draft as a fan is exciting, but reacting to picks can be nuanced.EDTShareTweetShareShareDetroit Lions draft analysis: First 2 days filled with hits, missesStephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY SportsAfter two days of research, I found something interesting to pass on to you, our Pride of Detroit readers. Apparently, there’s nothing in “The Rules” that states you have to like every pick the Detroit Lions make in the draft. There’s also nothing that states you’re required to hate every pick because the “Same Old Lions” clause was actually a write-in by a satirist and not part of “The Rules” official publications. In fact, after a very close review, it turns out there’s layers of nuance to every selection in the NFL Draft, so sometimes you can even like a player but not like that they were selected as early as they were. You can even like a player, but not like the fit with the team that selected him Trey Flowers Jersey White , or you don’t see the value of selecting them due to the current roster make-up. I don’t want to bore you all with legal jargon, but apparently it’s perfectly reasonable to have a complex emotional reaction to draft picks, and it doesn’t have to be a binary “love it” or “hate it” approach. So after this review, I’m going to give my opinion thus far.Round 1: T.J. Hockenson*Exaggerated yawn*So like... T.J. Hockenson is good at playing tight end. He’s a strong blocker, though that part of his game has been blown up to present him as someone who buries opponents on every play and that’s not fair to set expectations so high. He has very good hands and doesn’t suffer from concentration drops, so if the ball is in his vicinity, it’s usually going to be hauled in. The routes he runs are mostly alright, which is as glowing of a review I can give for a tight end that doesn’t run a super diverse tree. I think the media has blown T.J. Hockenson way out of proportion as the “Next Gronk,” which isn’t fair to him as a player or to fans who just want a player drafted that is going to be great. He’s a perfectly boring selection who helps the Detroit Lions in an area they desperately needed help. The addition of Jesse James should never have been viewed as an end to upgrading the tight end position when the rest of the corps consisted of a converted quarterback in Logan Thomas and a disappointing mid rounder in Michael Roberts.Round 2: Jahlani TavaiThe immediate reaction from fans to the selection of Jahlani Tavai was... generally not very positive. He isn’t a guy many of you had heard about, isn’t a plus athlete, and is playing a position that wasn’t a supreme need coming into Day 2. He’s also playing a position that wasn’t very strong coming into the second round. The secondary reaction, for me http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-levine-toilolo-jersey , was people pointing out that he didn’t work out at the Combine or his pro day due to injury, so how could I possibly have his workout numbers! YOU’RE JUST MAKING THINGS UP TO BE CONTRARIAN, MATHBOMB! Yes, the grand conspiracy is that I, knowing he would be drafted by the Lions, changed his numbers to be below average to generate outrage, MWAHAHAHAHAH! Actually that part is quite boring. Tavai didn’t measure at his pro day, but Hawaii’s pro day was quite early and he simply measured later in the process. While I wouldn’t say this is common practice, it happens to a dozen or so players every year.NFL Draft Day 2 reactions! Jeremy, Jerry and John break down the Detroit Lions’ surprising and controversial picks of Jahlani Tavai and Will Harris in the second and third round, respectively. On to what I thought about the pick. So I really like Jahlani Tavai. Good news! Only I really like him as a late-round flyer pick. Less than good news. Tavai, along with Te’von Coney out of Notre Dame and Josiah Tauaefa out of UTSA Womens Ricky Wagner Jersey , falls into a very specific type of player for me. This isn’t a RAS thing, either, for those who are inevitably going to jump on that train right away. I finalized my linebacker tape grades before the Combine and didn’t get a chance to go back to it afterwards. This is a guy that can come onto your team and provide immediate value as a special teamer and rotational player, and in Tavai’s case, at multiple positions. You may even get a starter. My issue with the selection is that Tavai falls into a type that I refer to lovingly as a “Josh Bynes.” This is a guy who can provide value by not being particularly bad, but you’re always looking to replace him because his very best isn’t so good he’s irreplaceable. Obviously, he has yet to don a Lions uniform, like any of the draft picks, so we’ll see. But I view this selection as taking someone you could have gotten two or three rounds later in the second round. Now I know some people like him and argue he would have been gone a few picks later, and to that I say, “Who cares?” Taking a guy who projects as a replaceable starter in the second round won’t be cheered by me even if I like the player.I’m sure I’m going to get lit up just like I was for the Teez Tabor selection in 2017, so I’ll leave it at that for now.Round 3: Will Harris Is Will Harris the guy I would have taken in the third round with how the board fell? No Womens Dwayne Washington Jersey , he is not. The corners I felt would benefit the team were still there and there were a couple of guards still on the board that could have started right away. However.Will Harris is an awesome pick. He’s an awesome player. His selection tells us a lot of what the team really wants in their secondary, and paves the way to projecting future picks by giving us a bigger piece of the roadmap. Harris, like Tracy Walker, is a speedster at safety who can and does fly all over the field. He can drop to the slot and cover receivers in man coverage when needed, he can tackle, and he can cover the deep portion of the field like a boss. Unlike Walker, Harris isn’t likely to need the period of learning behind a veteran before he’s comfortable taking snaps in the defense. I wouldn’t be surprised if Harris is the Day 1 starter at safety, because this is a defense he’s already played in. The Lions now have multiple players who can cover the deep part of the field and drop into the slot, and we’re at a point where “starting Nickelback” doesn’t really mean much. That’s weird. The NFL has been trending to the point where Nickel is a starting position on defense, but the team we love is going in a direction where it’s a committee job, and I’m totally here for it.SummaryI’m excited to hear what you guys thought of Detroit’s Day 1 and Day 2 picks. Did you love them? Did you hate them? Do you have a reaction that is less binary and need to vent your positive/negative frustrations/excitements in a public forum? Let me know. I’m dying to dig into this stuff with you.

Every adjustment Aaron Rodgers made to his game made sense http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authentic-justin-vogel-jersey , but most of them are terrible for his long-term effectiveness."(*Fun fact! Gomez actually scored on this play without ever touching home plate. It’s probably happened before, but I don’t think it’s happened much.)Gomez even hits well, and sometimes very well, but his contact skills have always been dicey, and at age 32 coming off of one of his worst seasons, and noticeably slowing, the end is likely in sight. This type of trajectory is what worries me about the current version of Rodgers. He hasn’t really needed to make quick throws because he’s so good at moving in the pocket and buying time, but we saw that agility and speed begin to fade just a bit last season Womens J'Mon Moore Jersey , and with that decline comes some added hits, added injuries, and ineffectiveness. This tendency has already hurt Rodgers, and if he didn’t play behind what is essentially an elite offensive line, things would be even worse. Rodgers is currently incapable of hitting big plays without his mobility. If he doesn’t put serious work into developing an old man’s game, he will simply not age well. He has already not aged particularly well.Analysts like to compare Rodgers to Tom Brady and Drew Brees when projecting longevity, but Brady and Brees are masters of creating big plays from quick throws. In 2018, both held the ball an average of under 2.61 seconds before throwing (top 5 among qualifiers). Both quarterbacks play the old man’s game as well as it can be played http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authentic-jk-scott-jersey , and Brady especially has feasted on an entire offensive roster constructed to facilitate a quick-strike, YAC-based scheme that keeps him upright and healthy. Rodgers averaged just 7.4 yards per attempt last season despite (or because of) holding onto the ball forever, and that was his highest mark in five years. Brees averaged 8.2 Y/A with his quick strike execution. Brady averaged 7.8.Rodgers’ current game developed naturally, in response to changing circumstances with the team, including the loss of Nelson, the presence of a truly great line, and a distaste for risky throws. It has also instilled terrible habits that result in more frequent hits and a style that simply doesn’t age well. If the new regime can coach up his old man skills that will help the current and future Packers immensely, but it won’t be easy. For Aaron Rodgers to really last Kevin King Jersey , he’s going to have to make some throws that make him uncomfortable, and maybe even see a momentary dip in his turnover efficiency. If he can’t adjust, I think many will be surprised at just how quickly he hits the cliff. With Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell not playing this year and, in turn, in play to be signed by the highest bidder in March, the question becomes who will the highest bidder be?Key football factors include needing a high-end tailback and having a willingness to let him be a workhorse. Significant cash and cap space is a given.From a business standpoint, the teams that chase Bell will be looking to create buzz, sell tickets Marquez Valdes-Scantling Jersey White , win headlines, and establish a sense of hope for 2019 and beyond.Teams to watch most closely include the Jets, Dolphins, Ravens, Browns, Colts, Raiders, Broncos Womens Corey Linsley Jersey , Eagles, Washington, Packers, and Buccaneers.The Jets should be the team to watch the most closely, depending on who the coach will be in 2019. Unless the next coach will be planning to use a rotation at running back, Bell would definitely make sense — if the overriding goal is to get the fans motivated to part ways with their money.

The worst-kept secret in the NFL is now a reality.On Monday Womens Joe Mixon Jersey , the Cincinnati Bengals officially hired Los Angeles Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor as their new head coach. This has been a done deal for a while now, but the hire couldn’t become official until the Rams’ season ended. Less than 24 hours after Los Angeles’ season ended in Super Bowl 53, Taylor was named the team’s next head coach, replacing Marvin Lewis.“I am happy and fortunate to join the Cincinnati Bengals as head coach,” Taylor said in a press release. “This is a great organization with good people and a rich history, and I am excited to get started. I am looking to add to that history by setting high standards, and holding everyone here accountable to those standards. There is a lot of work to do Vincent Rey Jersey White , and this is Day 1. We’re going to attack every day with enthusiasm to get this team ready to go.”Taylor is the team’s first head-coaching hire since 2003 when Lewis was named the team’s head coach. During that span, Taylor has been a Big 12 Player of the Year quarterback at Nebraska, played in the CFL, and has had several coaching stints with various college and NFL teams. Prior to joining the Rams, Taylor was an assistant coach with the Miami Dolphins from 2012-15, including a stint as interim offensive coordinator for the team’s final five games of 2015. In 2016, he was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach with the University of Cincinnati Bearcats. He joined the Rams in 2017 as assistant wide receivers coach Alex Erickson Jersey White , then was named quarterbacks coach in 2018.“Zac is a bright coach with an offensive mind and background, which is important to have in today’s NFL,” said Bengals president Mike Brown. “And he’s young. He embraces new ideas and new ways to do things, which will be a good thing for us. I believe our team will be exciting and fun to watch with him at the helm.”Welcome to the Jungle. This was a lock to happen."Ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Bengals just made a key move with their top 2016 pick. On Wednesday, the team announced it was picking up the fifth-year option on cornerback William Jackson, which means he is now signed through the 2020 season. This has been effectively a lock to happen since Jackson had his breakout 2017 season Andrew Billings Jersey White , where he became one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. He took a step back in 2018 but finished strong and reminded everyone he’s still one of the game’s best young cornerbacks. A fourth-year player in 2019, Jackson has played in 31 games with 21 starts. Last season, he started 16 games and totaled 41 tackles, and his 13 passes defensed led the team.As of now, Jackson, Dre Kirkpatrick, B.W. Webb Jeff Driskel Jersey White , Darius Phillips and Davontae Harris was the only cornerbacks signed through 2020, so the cornerback position is set for at least the next two seasons.

Detroit Lions vs. San Francisco 49ers final score: Tacky holding call ends Lions’ comeback attempt http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-calvin-johnson-jersey , 30-27 The Detroit Lions fell to 0-2 on the season, and in true Lions fashion, it ended with some controversy. Let’s get into it.First quarterThe Detroit Lions started the game on offense and built a little bit of confidence on the ground, gaining a couple of first downs before getting to midfield. There the drive stalled when Kerryon Johnson came up 2 yards short on third-and-3.The 49ers responded quickly with a 28-yard run. Then a 35-yard pass to Dante Pettis. However, when the Niners got into the red zone, the Lions defense stepped up with back-to-back sacks, forcing a short field goal, in which Robbie Gould promptly made. 3-0 49ers. But the Lions offense finally showed some life early in the game. Kenny Golladay continues to be the working force behind the Lions offense, and he capped a 69-yard touchdown with this catch: Second quarterKyle Shanahan’s offense continued to move the ball efficiently against Matt Patricia’s defense as the game moved to the second quarter. The Lions only managed to force two third downs (a third-and-1 and third-and-2), as the Niners quickly scored on a broken coverage play. 49ers 10, Lions 7.From there the offenses slowed down a bit. The Lions went three-and-out, but then they forced a punt thanks to a huge tackle for loss from rookie defensive lineman Da’Shawn Hand. But on the ensuing drive, Matthew Stafford made another grave mistake. Facing a third-and-3, Stafford couldn’t find an open receiver. Instead of throwing the ball away, he tried to extend the play and was too careless with the ball, fumbling it away and giving the 49ers the ball in the red zone. Thankfully, the Lions defense held strong and San Francisco had to add a field goal. 13-7 49ers.The Lions offense continued to be stuck in neutral, especially in third-and-short situations. However, the defense forced a three-and-out late in the second quarter, giving the Lions time for a two-minute, one-minute drive (thanks to some poor clock management from Patricia). Stafford drove the Lions into the red zone Frank Ragnow Jersey White , but couldn’t punch it in, and the Lions settled for a chip-shot field goal. 13-10 49ers.Third quarterThe Lions special teams remained cursed in the third quarter as the 49ers took the opening kickoff for a touchdown. A facemask penalty took the points off the board, but San Francisco still started with the ball inside the Lions’ 30-yard line. A few plays later, Jimmy Garoppolo found Garrett Celek for an 11-yard score. 20-10 49ers.The Lions got a kick start with a good return of their own, as Jamal Agnew got the Lions to midfield. From there, the Lions rushed their way into the red zone, but back-to-back holding penalties drove the Lions back. Conservative play-calling mixed with checkdowns led to another field goal. 20-13 49ers. The Lions defense won a Pyrrhic victory on the next drive, forcing a punt, but losing Darius Slay to a concussion. The Lions defense got to midfield, but again failed on a third down. A nice Sam Martin pinned the 49ers deep, but it wouldn’t end up mattering, because...The Lions defense couldn’t stop the run, and Matt Breida went 66-yards to push the score to two possessions. 27-13 49ersFourth quarterWe’re bullet-pointing again:Lions’ three-and-out49ers field goal. 30-17 49ers.Matthew Stafford connects with Golden Tate on a 67-yard play. Marvin Jones Jr. finished the drive with a touchdown. 30-20 49ers.Defense holds for a three-and-outAgnew punt return TD called back due to two block in the back penaltiesLions drive down field, as Stafford hits *checks notes* MICHAEL ROBERTS???? 30-27 49ers. And that’s where the controversy started. The Lions defense had one chance for a stop and a third-and-2, and Tracy Walker stepped in front of a Jimmy Garoppolo pass and nearly took it to the house. Unfortunately a holding penalty on Quandre Diggs negated the interception and the 49ers got an automatic first down.Was it the right call? It didn’t seem like a lot, but Diggs did get his hands on George Kittle.The 49ers ended up running out most of the clock and while the Lions got one more opportunity to score, they fell short after a couple key drops from Theo Riddick. PregameIt’s gameday and the Detroit Lions are back in action this week in the hopes of putting Week 1 far, far behind them. It’s was a suspicious way for the Matt Patricia era to begin, but as ugly as it was, it was only one game. Patricia’s head coaching career will not be defined simply by a opening egg.The Lions will be without starting guard T.J. Land and the San Francisco 49ers will be without their starting (and backup) guards as well. The good news for Detroit is that it looks like a couple other key players going through injuries will be good to go. According to Ian Rapoport, both running back LeGarrette Blount and edge rusher Ezekiel Ansah are expected to play Sunday afternoon Devon Kennard Jersey White , despite both being questionable on the injury report. With the Lions chilling on the west coast, we won’t get to see them until the 4 p.m. ET spot. Here’s how to catch them, as Week 2 kicks off. How to watch Lions vs. 49ersDate: Sunday, September 16, 2018Kickoff time: 4:05 p.m. ETTV: FOXWeek 2 TV map: Click hereAnnouncers: Thom Brennaman (play-by-play), Chris Spielman (analyst), Shannon Spake (sideline reporter)Online streaming: Fox Sports GoNational radio: Sports USA Media (Bob FitzgeraldHank Bauer)Local radio: WJR-AM NEWS TALK 760 (Dan Miller, Lomas Brown)Line: 49ers by 7 Ben Roethlisberger returns to the scene of one of his greatest triumphs on Sunday night. He’s hoping that’s the place the Pittsburgh Steelers will rediscover how to consistently reach the end zone.The Steelers, who face the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, have won their last two games despite settling for field goals far too much for Roethlisberger’s taste. That’s been a season-long problem for Pittsburgh, which ranks 30th in red-zone efficiency. It has scored touchdowns on only 42.3 percent of possessions after reaching the opponent’s 20-yard line.Pittsburgh (5-2) has still managed to build a two-game lead in the AFC North.“There’s a lot of resilience,” Roethlisberger said. “The defense is playing really good football. Offense hasn’t played up to our potential yet but we’re still winning football games. We’re doing just enough to get by right now. I’d like to think the last two weeks have been good, positive steps forward for our offense and hopefully we continue that.”Roethlisberger has bounced back from a dreadful five-interception performance against Jacksonville in victories over Kansas City and Cincinnati. He’s thrown three touchdown passes while getting picked off only once.He’ll need to be careful against a Lions’ defense that’s forced 14 turnovers — third-most in the league — including nine interceptions.“They’re very opportunistic, a lot of turnovers,” Roethlisberger said. “Balls are tipped and they catch them. Doesn’t seem like a ball that’s in the air ever hits the ground.”Roethlisberger was walking on air early in his career when he won the first of his two Super Bowls at Ford Field. The Steelers defeated Seattle 21-10 on Feb. 5, 2006 during his second season. Roethlisberger, who also won a regular-season game there in November 2009, always gets a special feeling when he sees the building.“Before the game, it will bring back a lot of great memories and thoughts, walking out there and driving up to the stadium,” he said. “But once the game starts Womens Theo Riddick Jersey , I’m solely focused on this game.”Disgruntled receiver Martavis Bryant has shined an unpleasant spotlight on himself this week. He said Wednesday that he’ll be benched Sunday after publicly asking for a trade. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin called Bryant’s actions “somewhat of a distraction.”“It’s OK to want more playing time and want to be a central reason why we’re successful, provide you relay that in an appropriate way,” Tomlin said. “Social media is not the appropriate way.”Rookie Juju Smith-Schuster will likely start in his place.The Lions (3-3) lost to Carolina and New Orleans in their last two outings.“I don’t make a whole lot of pronouncements about who’s doing what. All I talk about is where we are as a team and right now as a team we’re very inconsistent,” coach Jim Caldwell said. “We’re 3-3 and that’s not good enough.”Quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for 312 yards and three touchdowns but was also picked off three times in the 52-38 loss to the Saints. He toughed it out despite suffering hamstring and ankle injuries the previous week against the Panthers.Detroit’s bye week came at a good time for Stafford and his equally battered offensive line.“I needed to take care of myself physically and mentally refresh, get away for a little bit and think about something other than football for a couple days,” Stafford said.The break also came at a good time for his receiving corps. Top wideout Golden Tate, who’s dealing with a shoulder injury, practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. Rookie Kenny Golladay, who missed the last three games with a hamstring issue, also returned to practice.“Guys had some stuff to take care of, start feeling a little bit better,” Stafford said. “Some guys have turned that corner and that will help us. And then from on the field stuff, we’ve got to go out there and just play sharper. We’ve got to execute our systems a little bit better and find ways to win games.”Stafford will continue to get beaten up if the running game doesn’t perk up. The Lions rank 26th at 84 rushing yards per game. In contrast, Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, a former Michigan State star, is averaging 97.7 yards.On the injury front, Lions offensive tackle Greg Robinson (ankle) is a question mark but punter Sam Martin is expected to make his season debut after recovering from an ankle injury.Offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert (hamstring), tight end Vance McDonald (knee) and defensive end Stephon Tuitt (back) are the Steelers’ biggest injury concerns.

Will Andre Dillard be a Packer? That’s the result of our final mock draft for 2019 here at APC."Each year Davon House Jersey White , Acme Packing Company readers put our heads together to predict the first round of the NFL Draft in the days leading up to its start. This year, we did the same, with eight writers contributing to the mock.APC’s writers were assigned teams and made the picks for those teams accordingly. Below are APC’s selections, with context and analysis added by Managing Editor Evan “Tex” Western, who did not participate in the picks themselves.1. Arizona Cardinals (Kris Burke): Kyler Murray, QB, OklahomaThere isn’t much to say here. It seems like Murray is the Cardinals’ guy, which likely means that Josh Rosen is in a new city by the end of the second day of the draft. Murray will fit in well for Kliff Kingsbury and his Air Raid offense.2. San Francisco 49ers (Wendi Hansen): Josh Allen, EDGE, KentuckyThis pick seems to be down to Allen or Bosa. Both look like great prospects on the edge, and Bosa might be a slightly better scheme fit now that the Niners are back to a 4-3 system. Still, Allen has plenty of size to play with his hand in the dirt, so this will probably just come down to whichever player the Niners prefer after interviews.3. New York Jets (Kris): Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio StateSee above. With Allen gone, Bosa is probably a no-brainer pick for the Jets.4. Oakland Raiders (Shawn Wagner): Quinnen Williams, DT, AlabamaWilliams is undoubtedly one of the best defensive tackle prospects in years, and the Raiders could use an impact player in the middle of their line. This would give Oakland a ferocious interior group, matching up Williams with Maurice Hurst and Johnathan Hankins.5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Jon Barnett): Devin White, LB, LSUThe Buccaneers have been connected to White for a while now, and for good reason. He could be a solid strong-side or middle linebacker in a 4-3, and could be a great pairing with Lavonte David.6. New York Giants (Jason Hirschhorn): Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi StateWith the news today that Sweat’s heart condition is not as problematic as initially thought, he makes sense as a top-ten pick. In New York, he’ll give the Giants a dynamic edge rusher that they no longer have after trading Olivier Vernon to Cleveland.7. Jacksonville Jaguars (Shawn): Rashan Gary, DL, MichiganGary is a high-ceiling, low-floor prospect, and his fit in Jacksonville would be interesting. They already have two excellent defensive ends in Yannick Ngakoue and Calais Campbell, but either Campbell or Gary could shift inside on passing downs. That would allow them to work Gary in gradually as he acclimates to the NFL.8. Detroit Lions (Owen Riese): T.J. Hockenson, TE, IowaAn early tight end for Detroit? It didn’t work out that well last time with Eric Ebron (though he’s doing fine in Indy now), but Hockenson would probably be a day-one upgrade over projected starter Jesse James.9. Buffalo Bills (Mike Vieth): Ed Oliver, DT, HoustonOne of my favorite prospects in the draft, Oliver is a monster who would make a good Bills defensive line even better. This is a pure best player available pick Kyler Fackrell Jersey White , and for good reason.10. Denver Broncos (Peter Bukowski): Jonah Williams, OL, AlabamaDenver signed Ja’Wuan James in free agency to play right tackle, so Williams probably plays guard for the Broncos if he comes off the board at 10. A quarterback is still a possibility here — it’s a bit surprising we have only seen one go in the top ten.11. Cincinnati Bengals (Wendi): Devin Bush, LB, MichiganThis pick seems to be pretty commonly-predicted lately as well, as Bush would give the Bengals an impact player at linebacker that they haven’t had in a long time. With his range and coverage ability, he’s probably a perfect fit on as a weak-side linebacker.12. Green Bay Packers (Peter): Andre Dillard, OT, Washington StateFinally we get to the Packers’ pick here, and Peter has given the team its right tackle of the future in Dillard. Since the team has another pick later in round one, Green Bay can afford to get a player who will spend 2019 as a backup before moving into the starting lineup when Bryan Bulaga presumably leaves next spring. Williams being off the board means that Dillard is almost certainly the best remaining offensive lineman. The other option I could see here is Brian Burns, who could be a rotational pass-rusher as a rookie.13. Miami Dolphins (Shawn): Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State’Finally, we get quarterback number two. Miami would likely be ecstatic with this scenario, though in reality we’re probably much more likely to see someone move up into the top ten to grab him. If they didn’t take one of the remaining QBs in this situation, that’s a clear sign that they’re tanking for Tua in 2020.14. Atlanta Falcons (Jason): Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida StateThe Falcons need pass-rush help, and Burns is a nice fit here. Vic Beasley hasn’t cut it in the last two years or so, and he’ll likely be gone after the season. Enter Burns, whose testing and tape as a pass-rusher give him a great ceiling, though he’ll need to learn to play the run before he becomes a full-time starter.15. Washington (Mike): DK Metcalf, WR, MississippiA quarterback is possible here as well, but Metcalf would give Jay Gruden a pair of deep threats (Paul Richardson being the other) along with Josh Doctson, who has yet to really break out.16. Carolina Panthers (Paul Noonan): Greedy Williams, CB, LSUThe Panthers drafted an LSU corner in round two last year, grabbing the blazing-fast Donte Jackson. Now Williams arrives to give them a deep, young core of corners along with James Bradberry.17. New York Giants (Jason): Daniel Jones, QB, DukeAnother ideal situation here — the Giants find a quarterback without having to move. Jones over Drew Lock is all about evaluation, of course, so either one could be the pick in this spot.18. Minnesota Vikings (Kris): Greg Little, OT, MississippiThe Vikings drafting an offensive lineman here seems like an inevitability. They grabbed Pittsburgh’s Brian O’Neill in round two last year, but Little represents another great option there http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authentic-justin-vogel-jersey , and he might be able to move to guard if O’Neill locks down the right tackle job.19. Tennessee Titans (Paul): N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona StateThe Titans added a slot receiver this offseason in Adam Humphries, but Harry gives them a special quality they don’t have on the boundary: ability to win 50/50 balls. They’re in an odd spot in the draft given their roster — an offensive lineman might make sense here as well.20. Pittsburgh Steelers (Owen): Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, FloridaPittsburgh’s secondary has been in pretty rough shape for a while, and despite some high draft picks there are still questions there. Gardner-Johnson could play a hybrid slot/safety role, which would be a great job of matching need to player here.21. Seattle Seahawks (Peter): Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, ClemsonFrank Clark is gone, headed to Kansas City via trade. Enter Ferrell to replace him in the lineup, 22. Baltimore Ravens (Mike): Garrett Bradbury, OL, NC StateBradbury is likely to be the first true interior lineman off the board, and he would be an immediate starter at center or left guard.23. Houston Texans (Jason): Jawaan Taylor, OT, FloridaThis is another place where offensive line seems to be a no-brainer. Taylor could actually be a candidate to start on either side of the line on day one.24. Oakland Raiders (Shawn): Byron Murphy, CB, WashingtonThe Raiders’ second of three picks bolsters their secondary after adding the top defensive lineman. If Jon Gruden wants to revamp his defense, this is a great way to go. Murphy has some concerns about his top-end speed — corners who run 4.55 don’t often get drafted in round one, but Murphy is an excellent prospect in every other way.25. Philadelphia Eagles (Paul): Christian Wilkins, DT, ClemsonThe Eagles just re-signed Timmy Jernigan to be their number three defensive tackle behind Fletcher Cox and new arrival Malik Jackson, but Wilkins is a best player available pick and gives the Eagles ridiculous depth at that position.26. Indianapolis Colts (Owen): Jeffrey Simmons, DT, Mississippi StateSimmons’ ACL tear will almost certainly make him fall quite a ways in this year’s draft, but how highly he goes may be even more dependent on interviews and seeing how he responds to questions about his violent incident in high school. If teams are okay with him off the field, expect him to come off the board late on day one.27. Oakland Raiders (Shawn): Drew Lock, QB, MissouriWith their third picks, the Raiders still find a way to get their quarterback of the future here. It’s not crazy to think that they would move up to take Lock if he slips into the teens, but this would be a best-case scenario28. Los Angeles Chargers (Wendi): Andy Isabella, WR, MassachusettsIsabella has been a fast riser since the college football season ended, but his production and athleticism put him in day two category. Could a team make a little bit of an extra reach for him despite his 5-foot-9 frame? The Chargers could make some sense, since pairing him with a bigger possession receiver like Keenan Allen would be a nice combination.29. Seattle Seahawks (Jason): Deandre Baker, CB, GeorgiaMaybe the Seahawks take another first-round running back in Josh Jacobs; but in this case Jason has them going for secondary help after acquiring this pick from Kansas City in the Frank Clark trade. Baker might be an instant upgrade over second-year pro Trey Flowers, or else he could become the team’s slot corner while Flowers stays outside.30. Green Bay Packers (Peter): Noah Fant Womens J'Mon Moore Jersey , TE, IowaFant’s athleticism should have Packers fans and NFL fans everywhere drooling. However, his skill set is similar to that of a young Jimmy Graham, though he’s probably more adept as a blocker than even Graham. Making this pick could very well be a sign that Graham would be heading out the door sometime on day two or three of the draft. And while Matt LaFleur doesn’t need a hyper-athletic tight end for his offense, I’m sure he and Nathaniel Hackett would be more than happy to find ways to use him.31. Los Angeles Rams (Shawn): Dalton Risner, OL, Kansas StateWith question marks at guard, the Rams probably have an immediate starter in Risner, who could give them a long-term force on the inside of the line.32. New England Patriots (Jon B): A.J. Brown, WR, MississippiBrown to New England seems to be gaining traction, as the big receiver is able to play in the slot or on the boundary — an essential quality for a Patriots wideout. Julian Edelman and Demaryius Thomas aren’t getting any younger, and Brown would be another big target over the middle to help make up for the loss of Rob Gronkowski’s production. Acme Packing Company continues its countdown of the Packers’ 90-man roster with players 7-6." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteAcme Packing Companya Green Bay Packers communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsPackersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareShare2019 Packers 90-man roster ranking, 7-6: Jaire Alexander primed for breakoutPhoto by Stacy Revere/Getty ImagesWith veteran free agency essentially concluded and the 2019 NFL Draft in the rearview mirror, Acme Packing Company will once again rank and break down the Green Bay Packers’ 90-man roster.These rankings represent a composite of the individual selections from several APC contributors. Today, we reveal players seven and six, the Packers’ presumed top edge rusher and cornerback, respectively.7: Za’Darius Smith, OLBThe Packers made three major splashes in free agency earlier this offseason, none bigger nor more expensive than Za’Darius Smith. A multitalented defender, Smith emerged as one of the Baltimore Ravens’ top pass rushers last season, lining up on the edge and as an interior lineman on the AFC’s best defense. In those roles, he led the team with 62 total pressures, according to Pro Football Focus.In Green Bay, Smith will continue to see action at numerous spots along the defensive front. His ability to play along the interior should allow defensive coordinator Mike Pettine to keep Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark fresh as well as allow for more pass rushers to play together at once. Given the presence of fellow free-agent addition Preston Smith, first-round pick Rashan Gary, and returning sack leader Kyler Fackrell, Za’Darius Smith’s versatility ranks as his most valuable trait.6: Jaire Alexander, CBIt took less than a season for 2018 first-round pick Jaire Alexander to establish himself as the Packers’ top cornerback. While undersized at 5-foot-10, Alexander proved himself up to the task of playing press and man coverage at the NFL level. In particular, his game against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8 -- five pass breakups on nine targets -- ranks as one of the finest performances by a Green Bay corner in years.Alexander won’t play to that level every week. However, if he can reduce the number of mistakes from his rookie season and remain healthy, Alexander will earn recognition as one of the better corners in the league. Already, he offers Pettine the ability to shift him around the defense. Alexander spent roughly 62 percent of his snaps as a boundary corner and about 21 percent in the slot, but he also worked in the box as a linebacker. Pettine also lined up Alexander at the line of scrimmage on blitzes. The second-year man should reprise all those roles in 2019.

There are still free agents available and stones to flip over. The recent draft class has watered down position groups across the league and have made veterans on the roster bubble expendable to make room for the new young talent. Bill Barnwell of ESPN predicted which players he believes are most likely to be traded or released now that the draft is over. Here’s what he had to say about the Houston Texans:Yeah http://www.thetexanslockerroom.com/authentic-greg-mancz-jersey , I’m not buying it. Houston is going to have a bloodbath competition for offensive line spots, trimming the extra weight as training camp and preseason progresses. Despite adding two new offensive tackles via this draft class, the Texans are far from settled at the tackle position. I’m assuming Henderson will be here throughout the summer. My guess would be one of the veteran tight ends will be gone. Houston has the Jordan rookies Senio Kelemete Jersey White , both of whom had interesting 2018 seasons. Kahale Warring may walk onto the field and be the best tight end as a rookie. You can’t carry four tight ends. Three is the typical number.That could easily mean Ryan Griffin is the odd man out.

The Bengals’ offensive line wasn’t paying up to standards last season Jordan Willis Jersey , and Price wants that to change this year."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBABilly Price is primed to earn respect for the Bengals’ o-lineNew,48commentsThe Bengals’ offensive line wasn’t paying up to standards last season, and Price wants that to change this year.EDTShareTweetShareShareBilly Price is primed to earn respect for the Bengals’ o-lineAaron Doster-USA TODAY SportsBilly Price is entering his second season as a pro, but it will be his first year to prove himself to the Bengals’ new coaching staff. When it comes to buying into a new system and the players the team has brought in, it should come as no surprise that Price is at the forefront of the transition.“It sets an attitude in this new evolution of offense that we’re running now. You gotta start with it up front,” Price told Bengals.com. “We’ve got veteran guys from [Clint] Boling to Cordy Glenn. Everybody who has really helped us young guys to step up to what this philosophy is going to be with this scheme, and how we are going to attack these things. I think it is going to be really great for us. Especially with what we did in the draft, I think it is going to really help.”You can certainly see there is a notable change in the mindset of the offensive linemen compared to last year. It seems like plenty of it has to do with them learning this new offense that Taylor has brought with him. Draft picks Jonah Williams and Michael Jordan and free agency signee John Miller provide needed competition to the right guard and tackle spot, but Price also cites one more thing as a driving force for the upcoming season.“I think we need to continue to gain that respect. We finished last in the AFC [North] last year. There was a lot of meat still left on the bone, if you want to call it that. So we have a lot of good things going forward. A lot of guys are really excited for what we are doing in this offense Carl Lawson Jersey , and how to attack these defenses in the upcoming year.”The players are clearly eating up what this new staff is selling. Hopefully it ends up having an impact on their performance next season. Last year, it was clear the offensive line was more than a couple acquisitions away from being back to an acceptable offensive line.Players like Bobby Hart and Alex Redmond on the right side had major inconsistencies that dragged down the whole unit. You could also say Glenn was a disappointment considering the Bengals moved down in the first round to acquire him. There were still times when they were all able to put it together, but the additions and change in coaching shows that it still wasn’t good enough.If the Bengals’ offensive line wants to gain respect, then one of the easiest ways is too be more consistent with their good plays. A way to do that is focus on the running game to open up the passing game. Something Price is excited the new coaching staff is emphasizing. “As coach [Zac] Taylor and coach [Jim] Turner always talk about, it is the marriage of the pass and the run. You really got to set up the run, so you can hit those deep shots in the passing game. So I know he is really excited about it, and I know we’re going to make sure we get after it.”It is pretty obvious that Price fits into the intangible aspect of Taylor’s new era of Bengals. He will likely be one of this team’s leaders going forwards just from the way he can command a room. Fans are also hoping that this new offense fairs better than the one former-Bengals’ offensive coordinator Bill Lazor brought in last season. From what Price is saying, it seems like fans at least have a chance to be excited about the direction of the offensive line. Baker Mayfield doesn’t regret anything he did or said to or about Hue Jackson after the Browns’ 35-20 victory over the Bengals on Nov. 25.鈥淣o, I said what I said,鈥欌€?Mayfield said Tyler Boyd Jersey , via Mary Kay Cabot of the . 鈥淚t鈥檚 another week. We have to hit the reset button. We have to be able to come in, be able to block out the distractions, block out the outside noise like we have week to week every time this season and be able to do our job.鈥滿ayfield declined Jackson’s attempted hug after the game, offering a quick handshake instead. The rookie explained he was mad that Jackson defected to a division rival so soon after his firing and later called Jackson “fake” in an Instagram debate with ESPN’s Damien Woody.But Mayfield intimated Wednesday he has had contact with Jackson since his comments. After being asked whether he or Jackson has reached out, Mayfield said “no comment.”Jackson has declined multiple requests in Cincinnati this week, Paul Dehner Jr. of the reports, and Bengals coach Marvin Lewis wouldn’t talk about Jackson during a conference call with Browns beat reporters Wednesday.The Browns have seen Jackson since his departure, with Mayfield and Damarious Randall making news for the greetings they offered their former head coach while in Cincinnati. But on Sunday, Jackson returns to Cleveland on the opposing sideline.It remains to be seen how Browns fans will greet Jackson, but your guess probably is a good one.鈥淥bviously Nick Vigil Jersey , people are entitled to their own opinion,鈥欌€?Mayfield said. 鈥淚鈥檝e said that, but we鈥檒l see. I鈥檓 not going to take any guesses, but like I said, you have to block out the noise. You have to block out distractions. You have to be able to do your job. That鈥檚 something we鈥檙e going to do regardless, is focus on doing our job.”

That may not always come in the players’ first years, but the talent pool every year seems to be deep enough for that statement to generally hold true. For the Detroit Lions, that means—at the very least—they should expect the likes of tight end T.J. Hockenson, linebacker Jahlani Tavai Color Rush Austin Bryant Jersey , and safety Will Harris to be impact players at some point during their rookie contract.But not all will have as big of an impact in the 2019 season. Every player takes the transition to the NFL differently, and some positions are tougher to adjust to at the next level.So today’s Question of the Day is:Which Lions draft pick will have the best rookie season?My answer: Honestly, I don’t think anyone should be expected to make a huge rookie impact other than Hockenson. As a top-10 pick, Hockenson’s impact should be immediate and huge Cheap Austin Bryant Jersey , even though tight ends can sometimes struggle to adjust. Hockenson has had enough experience in a pro-style offense at Iowa that his transition shouldn’t be too difficult.But perhaps more importantly, it’s hard to see any other rookie really having a huge impact in their rookie season. Tavai and Harris aren’t likely to be Week 1 starters given Detroit’s current depth at each position, and while they almost certainly will eventually take over a significant role on defense, I wouldn’t be surprised if that didn’t happen until at least October or November Austin Bryant Jersey Womens , if that early.So when it comes to 2019 contributions, expect the story of the rookie class to be squarely on Hockenson’s shoulders.Your turn.Tweets from https://twitter.com/PrideOfDetroit/lists/lions-coverage If you haven’t already, check out our Week 8 power rankings, as curated by our own Mansur Shaheen. He has a pretty darn good grasp of the entire league Austin Bryant Detroit Lions Jersey , and does a great job remaining as objective as possible with his rankings.But this week, I wanted to expand our outlook for power rankings. The Detroit Lions have been a very confusing team thus far. Their three wins have all come against teams with winning records, but their three losses are all against teams with losing records. So I wanted to see what the national perception is of this team after moving to .500 last week with a road victory against the Dolphins. Here’s where they stand after Week 7 according to several other outlets.SB Nation: 17th (up 7)ESPN: 20th (up 3) USA Today: 19th (up 4)Yahoo Sports: 15th (up 3)NFL.com: 12th (up 5)It’s obvious the Lions still have to go a long way to prove themselves to NFL analysts. Only two publications have the team in the top half of the league, but just about everyone has them in that middle tier of teams. That certainly makes sense Austin Bryant Jersey 2019 , given not only how inconsistent the team has been but their overall 3-3 record. Still, there are some oddities among these rankings. ESPN has the Dolphins two spots above the Lions despite Detroit taking it to them on their home turf two days ago. SB Nation has the Dolphins one spot ahead of the Lions. What may not come as a surprise is that the Lions are last in the NFC North in all of these power rankings... except for one. NFL.com has the Packers a spot below Detroit at 13. This week the Lions are hosting the Seahawks, who hold an identical 3-3 record and have also won three of their last four. Analysts have the Seahawks slotted right around the same place as the Lions: smack dab in the middle of the league. Check it out:SB Nation: 18thESPN: 16th USA Today: 16thYahoo Sports: 16thNFL.com: 17thSo which team is more mediocre? We’ll find out this Sunday.
