It’s no secret how I feel about Jamie Collins

The more you play together, the faster you can play, Quinn said of his defense. We haven’t lowered our 40 times, but because of the style we play, we’re able to play faster because Cheap Football Practice Jerseys of communication and understanding.

The Falcons will face either the Patriots, and their dynamic offense led by quarterback Tom Brady, or the Steelers, who have a wealth of offensive talent.

It’s no secret how I feel about Jamie Collins, Browns coach Hue Jackson said. He’s an outstanding football player and a guy we think can be part of the foundation of a tremendous defense. I was excited when we were able to trade for him last season, and now, I’m even more excited knowing that he is going to part of our future. We all know we have a lot of work to do to get our team where we feel it needs to be. Jamie wants to be a part of that. He wants to help build this team for success.

He was outstanding in our locker room last year because he’s seen what success in the NFL looks like and our players respect the way he carries himself. We are all looking forward to him being a part of the success we plan to earn through our hard work and preparation.

Collins’ new deal makes him the fourth-highest Cheap Girls Softball Jerseys paid linebacker in the NFL, behind only Denver’s Von Miller, Kansas City’s Justin Houston and Green Bay’s Clay Matthews.

No one saw it coming when the 1-4 Dolphins waxed the Steelers, 30-15, in Miami; even fewer saw that jump-starting the 9-1 run that got them into the playoffs. But now, no Ryan Tannehill, and as good as their defense has played, the Steelersoffense likely wont have to be all that dominant to outscore the Dolphins. Roethlisberger underwent knee surgery after their last meeting; now hes all healed up and rested, too, after getting last Sunday off. For the umpteenth postseason, beware Pittsburgh.

Twitter is terrified of Fake Brady

Fake Brady is really creepy. Like haunt your dreams creepy.

The nightmare-inducing mask was first introduced to us during Tom Brady’s Cheap Elite Jerseys Deflategate suspension, when it made an appearance before the Patriots’ season opener against the Cardinals.

Pittsburgh was locked into this seed before it hosted Cleveland. It now knows it will have a rematch with Miami in the wild-card round of the playoffs next weekend.

Houston was locked into this seed before it played in Tennessee. Oakland will come to the site of Super Bowl LI to open the playoffs.

Dallas has been sitting on the first-round bye and home-field advantage since the end of Week 15. Despite the loss at Philadelphia, it settles in as a solid favorite in the conference playoff bracket.

Atlanta locked down the NFC’s second first-round bye with its win over New Orleans on Sunday.

Seattle held its ground by beating San Francisco on Sunday. It will host Detroit at home, where it lost only one game all season.

Green Bay beat Detroit for a second time this season Sunday to win the division. It will host a rematch with New York.

New York was locked into this position before beating Washington on Sunday. It will open the playoffs in Lambeau Field for its second trip there this season.

Detroit lost to Green Bay at home but was ensured at least Cheap European Soccer Jerseys the NFC’s final spot when Washington lost earlier. Now comes the really hard part: a first-round trip to Seattle.

The Falcons also have the MVP candidate in Matt Ryan, and the fewer catastrophic injuries (no Earl Thomas for Seattle again, of course). They even have head-to-head postseason success against a Pete Carroll/Russell Wilson Seahawks team, in 2012.

Ben Roethlisberger reminds Steelers it’s high time to draft a QB early

Ben Roethlisberger wants to take some time to decide whether he will play quarterback for the Steelers again. While Big Ben’s status sounds like a cause for alarm, it’s more of a wake-up call for Pittsburgh.

If Cousins becomes available, the 49ers would pursue him as hard as they pursued (Kyle) Shanahan, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Shanahan reportedly is the clear favorite to land head-coaching job in San Francisco… if he wants it.

Even if Washington tags Cousins, San Francisco still could attempt to pry him loose in a trade with a package that could include this year’s No. 2 overall draft pick. And if Washington doesn’t want to deal now, it could have issues later.

Tagging Cousins again in 2018 would cost Washington $34.48 million, an unpalatable number for any team. And even if the Redskins did commit to that, Cousins could walk away from Washington after the 2018 season, sign where he wants, and Washington can do nothing to prevent it.

It all leaves Washington overly vulnerable and Cousins particularly powerful. He gets to dictate where he will play, and the lure of Shanahan in San Francisco will be strong.

It was fun because they let him go, then they let me go, so I was running Cheap Cycling Jerseys and when I was coming off the curve, he showboated twice. The first time he was pointing at his friends or someone, he was pointing, and when I was coming off the curve, already Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys in my head, I was like, I’m gonna catch you no matter what. He showboated that one time, then he showboated again and that’s when I passed him. As I passed him, he looked at me and that’s when he fell so I just kept going.

Super Bowl media day 2017: Five crazy moments from opening night

There’s so much going on at media day that it’s easy to miss something.

You have the players up on stage answering question after Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys question, you have the players in the arena answering questions and then you have members of the media doing crazy things just to get noticed. In all, it’s pretty hectic, but we’re here to recap some of the craziness.

Mack is getting used to raising the bar, though in 2015, his second season, he was named first-team All-Pro at both end and linebacker, the first time anyone had ever won at two positions in the same season. He had 15 sacks that year, second to J.J. Watt, who Mack replaced this season as SN’s defense honoree.

This year, the Raiders went 12-4 for their best record and first playoff appearance since 2002. Mack was subjected to every blocking scheme opposing coaches could imagine, every method of neutralizing him possible. He still finished with 11 sacks, plus five forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries (often on strip-sacks), and the first interception and first touchdown of his career.

The pick-six, in a November Raiders win, off of a Cam Newton screen pass Mack dropped back to cover perfectly, likely gave defensive coordinators around the NFL fresh nightmares.

His outrageous combination of speed and strength made up for a world of team-wide defensive shortcomings, and it further established him as one of the focal points of an emerging NFL power. Had quarterback Derek Carr not broken his leg in the next-to-last regular season game, Mack might Cheap Baseball Jerseys Kids still have been wreaking havoc this past championship weekend.

Meet Jerod Evans, ‘one of, if not the best quarterback’ in NFL Draft

Jerod Evans was a one-year starter for Virginia Tech, which nearly upset Clemson in the ACC title game before the quarterback entered the 2017 NFL Draft.

The NFL Draft process will be huge for Evans, a tall, strong-armed passer with loads of upside.

We’ll follow his draft process with regular draft journals, starting with this one, done just before he left for Indianapolis and the all-important NFL Combine.

SPORTING NEWS: You had a unique journey to get to Virginia Tech. You were at two schools before you landed with the Hokies. What has that process been like?

JEROD EVANS: In high school, I had four offers: Memphis, North Texas, Navy and Air Force Academy. I decided, after the recruiting visits, I liked the Air Force atmosphere on and off the field. I went to the a prep school for a year in 2012 and then went to play at Air Force. But in the third or fourth game of the season, I tore my ACL and started to reevaluate some things.

“Think we all understand the expectations that come with this job. I think you guys know how I feel, you know I have great perspective on this thing.

“We’re all on one-day contracts; that’s how I look at it,” Pagano added. “So we’re going to work hard, roll up our sleeves like we always do. Every season is different, every team is different, we’ve Cheap Liverpool Jerseys got a lot of work to do. So my focus is on that. You know, control the controllable — thought Cheap Knock Off Jerseys I’d throw that (cliché) out there to start the new year with your guys. There’s things I can control and things I can’t, so focus on what I can control and go to work on that.”

SN sources: Former 49er Andre Carter to meet with Dolphins about D-line coach job

A former San Francisco 49ers first-round pick is hoping to land an NFL coaching job.

Two sources told Sporting News that Andre Carter is meeting with the Miami Dolphins about their assistant defensive line coach vacancy.

The team will be forced to conduct training camp somewhere besides University of Phoenix Stadium the first week of August with heavy metal band Metallica scheduled to perform on the field Aug. 4, president Michael Bidwill said Tuesday.

“It looks like it’s going to impact us for three or four days,” Bidwill said on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, via the team’s website . “We will need to find a place where we will go spend some time training in that first week of training camp. Our football operations people are working on where that is going to be.”

The Cardinals, who held several practices outside the stadium due to a Guns N’ Roses concert last year, spent a week in San Diego last summer and practiced with the Chargers twice before the teams met in their preseason matchup.

Bidwill said he expects to have an answer on this year’s scheduling dilemma within the next few weeks.

But here’s a thought: What if neither of them play well? It wouldn’t be the first time a quarterback didn’t exactly elevate his level of play to fit the Super Bowl Cheap Jerseys With Numbers stage. Plenty of signal-callers have struggled in the NFL’s most important game.

If Brady and Ryan don’t play up to their usual standards, they should at Cheap Kids Football Jerseys least avoid playing like these guys did (All statistics gathered from Pro Football Reference).

Bill Belichick won’t be happy with this Patriots player’s tweet

During the Patriots parade on Tuesday, coach Bill Belichick tried to get a “NO DAYS OFF” chant going to a bunch of people who were taking the day off.

From the looks of the video, the crowd didn’t appear all that into the chant. Even his own players didn’t get the message as offensive lineman Nate Solder sent a tweet Wednesday morning that defies his coach’s demands.

The Patriots fell to 2-2 after a 41-14 blowout loss at Kansas City on Monday Night Football, which prompted some to predict demise of this dynasty. We all know what came next. New England went on to Cincinnati. Then the next team. And so on. New England finished 12-4 and beat Baltimore and Indianapolis in the AFC playoffs, although both wins were clouded with controversy. Deflategate was born. The Patriots shook that off to beat Seattle in Super Bowl XLIX with the help of a Malcolm Butler interception in the final minute. A little lucky. Maybe a little dirty. But the end was result was Bill Belichick and Tom Brady winning a fourth Super Bowl together.

The Raiders’ 1981 post-Super Bowl letdown was well-timed. Falling to 7-9 put Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China them in position to draft Marcus Allen with the 10th overall pick, and his brilliance was the primary reason the team returned two seasons later to win their third championship in an eight-year period. Because that run involved multiple coaches and multiple quarterbacks, it’s not often viewed as one of the NFL’s important dynasties. It Cheap Jerseys UK also didn’t help that the team moved during that time from Oakland to LA.

Lady Gaga faked her stadium roof jump during Super Bowl halftime show

Lady Gaga’s spectacular opening of the Super Bowl 51 halftime show was accomplished with a little TV magic.

After singing a medley of “God Bless America / This Land Is Your Land,” the 30-year-old appeared to jump off the roof of NRG Stadium down to the stage on the field.

We remember helicopters and a dance video and the Fridge. There was a lot of sideshow to the 85 Bears’ rampage through the NFL. It’s a tribute to the team’s greatness, though, that Cheap Jerseys Rugby all of that does not obscure the brilliance of the football performance. The only question about the ’85 Bears seemed not to be whether they would win the Super Bowl, but whether they would go undefeated. And when that was gone, the issue was how great the margin of their Super Bowl victory would be.

This team might be among the most underrated in NFL history, better remembered for the Hank Stram “It’s like stealing” comment picked up by NFL Films during KC’s rampage over what had seemed, until that day, to be a genuinely great Vikings team. The Chiefs defense was loaded with Hall Cheap Jerseys Sunglasses of Famers and held all three postseason opponents to seven or fewer points and forcing a combined 13 turnovers in those games. Only two opponents all year breached the 300-yard mark.

Myles Garrett’s latest comments should encourage Browns

After making a public plea to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and earlier stating that he’d rather not play in a cold-weather city, Myles Garrett clarified that he will be happy to play for whichever team selects him in April’s NFL Draft — even if that team is the Cleveland Browns.

Garrett, a defensive end from Texas A&M, is this year’s consensus projected No. 1 overall pick.

Fire Chief Keith Glass told the Journal-Constitution the roof collapsed as responders attempted to get the fire under control. The cause of the fire is still being investigated.

Moses played for Georgia from 2003-06 before being selected in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Raiders. He failed to make Oakland’s 53-man roster and was cut just before the regular season. After a quick claim and release by the Cardinals, he went on to play the next four seasons with the Dolphins and recorded 3.5 sacks in 44 games.

Since leaving Miami in 2011, Moses had served as defensive line coach at Reinhardt University.

An individual matchup of this caliber had us thinking about other championship-round clashes featuring guys coming off dominant regular seasons, with at least one of them earning some hardware and the other posting a comparably award-worthy performance. Here are three of the best examples from the last 30 years in each of the four major pro sports (going back any further has you really splitting hairs over Cheap Jerseys America Bird, Magic, Kareem, Moses Malone and Dr. J in the early ‘80s).

(Honorable mentions here go to Karl Malone vs. Michael Jordan Cheap Ice Hockey Jerseys in the 1997 NBA Finals, Peyton Manning vs. Richard Sherman in Super Bowl 48, Chipper Jones vs. Bernie Williams in the 1999 World Series and Mark Messier vs. Cam Neely in the 1990 Stanley Cup.)

Victor Cruz visits Panthers following release from Giants

Cruz, 30, spent his entire seven-year NFL career in New York after going undrafted out of UMass in 2010. He emerged as a star wideout during the 2011 season before continuing his success on the field in 2012.

However, he was derailed in Cheap Football Jerseys 2014 when he suffered a torn patellar tendon in his knee and missed the entire 2015 season after suffering a calf injury while rehabbing his knee.

Of course, the two sides could agree to a long-term contract before Washington is forced to use the franchise tag, but, according to Pro Football Talk, that will not happen.

The Redskins and Cousins went through a similar song and dance last offseason. Cousins wanted a long-term deal, but the Redskins were hesitant, so Cousins signed a one-year, $19.95 million franchise-tag deal.

If Washington tags Cousins again this year, his contract would be worth $23.94 million.

Players can be tagged only three times in their careers. If Cousins is tagged this season, it would be his second time. Should he ever be tagged a third time, he would receive a 44 percent increase in salary over his franchise-tag rate.

Cousins was inconsistent last season, but he still showcased the ability to run Washington’s offense and gave the team a chance to win on multiple occasions. He finished last season with 4,917 yards passing and 25 touchdowns.
