Aaron Rodgers Jersey injury gives the NFL yet another issue to worry about

Elite Youth Tani Tupou Jersey
An NFL season that has been all about the raging controversy over players’ protests during the national anthem brought forth another development Sunday to keep the focus away from the field. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, still out of work after beginning the players’ protest movement last season, filed a grievance accusing NFL teams of improperly colluding to keep him unemployed.

Most any neutral NFL fan is rooting against an upset so the football world can feast on another helping of Pats-Steelers with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. The Patriots, of course, would not tip their hands. But if they are being honest, they would come to a contrarian conclusion: The Jaguars, not the Steelers, pose a larger challenge to them.

The presence of Bortles and the Steelers’ track record makes the statement seem crazy on its face. But what would worry the Patriots about the Steelers? The Patriots know they can beat the Steelers, because they always do. Ben Roethlisberger has lost his last four games against New England, playoffs included, and hasn’t beaten the Patriots since 2011.

Rodgers’s injury came a week after two other standouts, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Houston Texans defensive ace J.J. Watt, suffered season-ending injuries. It also happened a week after Rodgers provided his latest dose of late-game magic to give the Packers a thrilling victory at Dallas in perhaps the most compelling game of the season.

Authentic Kids T.J. Ward Jersey There have not been enough of those captivating moments this season to keep the anthem controversy from being all-consuming. The NFL can only hope a resolution is at hand. Owners are Nene Youth jersey scheduled to meet Tuesday and Wednesday in New York. According to multiple people familiar with the league’s inner workings, owners are hopeful that the NFL Players Association will support a measure for players to stand for the anthem, which potentially would come in conjunction with official support for players’ endeavors in community activism.

There might be some evidence to justify the owners’ hope that a mutually agreeable solution to the anthem issue can be reached. After all, the NFL and NFLPA issued a joint statement last week vowing to work cooperatively on the matter. How often do these two sides do anything like that?

Even when Jags quarterback Blake Bortles Jersey came out on fire, completing 13 of 15 pass attempts for 155 yards in the first half

The Jaguars couldn’t run the ball Leonard Fournette was a beast in the regular season, racking up more than 1,300 total yards and 10 touchdowns. But the Patriots knew what was coming in the AFC championship. Fournette finished with 24 carries for 76 yards, which doesn’t look terrible on the surface. But throw out his longest run, a 14-yarder, and he finished with 23 rushes for 62 yards, less than 2.7 yards per carry.

It didn’t open up running lanes for Fournette. When the Pats later shut down Fournette, it put Bortles in some uncomfortable third-and-long situations.

Chris Tierney Limited Jersey 49ers safety Eric Reid, a former teammate of Kaepernick’s who joined in his protests last season and has continued them this year, told ESPN, I know Colin has been fighting to get in the room to speak with the corporate people from the NFL, and thus far he hasn’t been able to. We’re Paul Byron Youth jersey just going to keep working on getting him in the room.

Lawyers for Kaepernick said that he has not been included in correspondence between the league, a group called the Players Coalition and the NFL players’ union. That’s despite a statement Saturday from the Coalition stating that the former 49ers quarterback was invited to the Monday meeting, along with Commissioner Roger Goodell and Texans owner Bob McNair, whose inmates running the prison remark angered his and other players.

Xander Bogaerts Limited Jersey We didn’t even know there was a meeting, a lawyer for Kaepernick told SB Nation on Sunday. The press release was the first time we heard of any invite.

McNair made his inmates comment at a meeting earlier this month to which Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, a Coalition member, said Kaepernick had been invited. That also was news to Kapernick attorney Mark Geragos, who told Slate, We specifically reached out to the [NFL Players Association] and to the Players Coalition, and we were verbatim told that Colin had no role.

The NFL also had helped create an impression that Kaepernick was being offered chances to join the dialogue. We look forward to him joining the conversation, league spokesman Joe Lockhart said last week.

No. 22 Tennessee hangs on to beat Vanderbilt 67-62

Tennessee guard Jordan Bowden disagreed with his coach’s assessment this week that the sophomore guard wasn’t slumping.

Chargers: Los Angeles will clinch a wild-card berth with a win over the Raiders combined with a Titans loss/tie against the Jaguars and a Bills loss/tie against the Dolphins, or a win combined with a Titans loss/tie and Ravens loss/tie, or a tie combined with a Titans loss and a Bills loss/tie.

Bills: Buffalo will clinch a wild-card berth with a win combined with a Ravens loss to the Bengals, or a win combined with a Chargers loss/tie and a Titans loss/tie, or a tie combined with losses by the Chargers and Titans.

Eagles: Philadelphia has clinched the NFC East and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

Vikings: Minnesota has clinched the NFC North. The Vikings will clinch a first-round bye with a win over the Bears, or a Panthers loss/tie against the Falcons, or a Saints win over the Buccaneers, or a Rams win over the 49ers.

“A little different, so I guess we’re figuring where we need certain things (with Parker) coming off the bench to start the game,” Spurs guard Danny Green said. “Trying to get a happy medium of getting some fast pace, slower pace, getting it inside, working outside, but turn the ball over a little less, move it a little bit better.”

Parker responded with 12 points, five assists and one turnover, but LaMarcus Aldridge struggled without the veteran point guard.

The Pacers stymied Aldridge offensively even without the injured Myles Turner, limiting the Spurs forward to a season-low 10 points. Aldridge finished 5 for 14 from the field.

Bowden said he did believe he was slumping, and his relief was evident when his shots started falling against Vanderbilt.

“What I’ve been waiting on for the past two games, finally seeing one go in,” Bowden said. “It was a good thing to see.”patriots_004_43c712908736aa3b-180x180

Cam Newton Jersey is in the news this week for demanding to sit down with Roger Goodell and have a conversation about safety on the field.

He apparently doesn’t feel safe on the field and you can’t blame him considering how teams have hit him since the start of the season.
Men's Reebok St. Louis Blues #55 Colton Parayko Authentic White Away NHL Jersey
The initial review from the league of Sunday’s Cardinals-Panthers game agrees with Newton, as Ed Werder of ESPN reports Calais Campbell should’ve been flagged for a low hit on Newton in Carolina’s win.

The third-year QB regressed entirely in 2016 to all but sink a season that began with playoff hopes. The Jags passed on former Falcons coach Mike Smith, their other top candidate, opting to go with Marrone Authentic Kevan Miller Jersey after coming away impressed by his two-game stint as interim coach. Like Bradley, however, Marrone is now tied to Bortles, for better or worse, and the Jags could come to regret not landing a bright offensive mind like Kyle Shanahan or Josh McDaniels and moving on from Bortles.

Alabama coach Nick Saban has railed for years about the influence of agents — both legitimate and sleazy.

If a guy didn’t get drafted in the first or second round, he should have kept his butt in school, Saban said last summer.

That comes from the coach who probably does the best job of advising his juniors on the NFL Draft.

Authentic Youth Davis Webb Jersey Nobody does it better than Nick Saban, Sumlin said. Nobody.

When juniors go undrafted, there is no other league to go develop in, Saban added. If they don’t make the team [as a free agent], there is nothing for the guy to do. That’s bad for the league.

Maybe that means Munchak could garner some kind of assistant head coach role with the Steelers. He’s never had an OC role before. Oddly enough, Haley turned down an interview with the Cardinals back in 2013 to remain as the Steelers offensive coordinator.

The bigger issue for the Steelers might be on the defense. They gave up 45 points to the Jaguars. Perhaps had they been able to play some defense, we wouldn’t be looking at Haley as the problem.

Julie Ertz was perhaps the last person associated with the Philadelphia Eagles Jersey to find out she is going to Minneapolis in two weeks for the Super Bowl.

Maybe this season ends the same way as last season, as so many other recent seasons have: With the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. It’s certainly probable, if not likely. But if the 2017 NFL season has taught us anything, it’s that this sport can be weeeeeird.

OK, so the Patriots are back in the playoffs. No surprise there, must be a year that starts with 2-0. The Steelers are in too, as NFL law decrees. The Chiefs made it back in for a third straight year and the Falcons overcame all those memes to elbow their way through.

After that? No Packers, no Seahawks, no Cowboys, just eight teams that weren’t playing January last year. And nearly half of those teams, we still kinda can’t believe they’re in. The Rams? The Jaguars? The Buffalo-freakin’-Bills?!?!

These are some of the stories of how we ended up with this particular playoff picture, either how teams found their way in or how they found themselves clearing out their lockers on New Year’s.

In early 2013, Greg and his wife, Kara, founded the HEARTest Yard Fund after a routine examination of their unborn son, T.J., revealed the infant had hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). It’s a family service program administered in conjunction with Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte.

We meet with the hospital staff and the nurses and doctors and go into these homes, Olsen explains. Just to see and hear the families and have them relay the stories about this program and … what the lives of these families would be like without our program. To hear how it is helping their family life and family dynamic is something far beyond what we imagined.

It’s been fun watching it grow and have such an impact.

Benjamin and his wife, Kirsten, joined the global fight to end the scourge of sex trafficking.

Drew Brees Jersey clearly still has it, and he’s the main reason the Saints beat the Panthers in wild card play.

The Patriots are excellent on offense, as we all know. But they aren’t as good on defense. They are the classic bend but don’t break defense, giving up a ton of yards (29th in the NFL) but not many points (fifth). While the Titans aren’t anything special on offense, they still have Mariota. Mariota can make plays with his legs that other quarterbacks can’t make. The X-factor for the Patriots will be pass rush discipline and Aleksander Barkov Jersey making sure they rush the passer but keep Mariota in the pocket.

The first game on Sunday is between the fighting Blake Bortles and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jaguars won last weekend with Bortles throwing for 87 yards. Yikes. Bortles also threw for 95 yards when the Jags beat the Steelers in Week 5 when the defense forced five Big Ben interceptions.

Odds are the Patriots are going to make a deep run into the playoffs, and Pats fans will take that as evidence that Wickersham’s story was fake news. That once again they will have been vindicated.

A deep playoff run won’t change the truth of Wickersham’s story, however. It will just mean that the Patriots are a really good football team.

Situational football is not always sexy or exciting, but it wins games.

Situational football would dictate that, holding a 28-12 lead with just under 10 minutes left to play, you run the dang ball.

Moving the ball on the ground, or even trying to, takes precious time off the clock. In this particular situation, it would have kept Tom Brady off the field, limiting his ability to do what Tom Brady does to devastate his opponents.

Nick Saban, a former Belichick assistant, is Alabama’s head coach and helps oversee the defense. Brian Daboll was hired as Alabama’s new OC after Steve Sarkisian took the Atlanta Falcons OC job (another connection) after last year’s national championship game. So yep, Daboll was on New England’s sidelines during the comeback last year.

Jerry Richardson, a cornerstone of the league since being awarded an expansion team for the Carolinas in 1993, would likely have been forced out in this #MeToo American climate anyway after a damning Sports Illustrated investigation accused him of sordid sexual fetishes and payoffs to employees in the organization who had been the alleged victims of Richardson’s workplace misconduct.

Much more about that later. But one little nugget before we get back to this crazy game, and these crazy plays at the end of the game: It is not certain—at all—that the league will rest and drop the investigation into Richardson. Given the seriousness of the allegations, that’s wise.

There is no logical segue from one of the most powerful men in pro football, in apparent shame, suddenly putting his team on the market to one of the most dramatic games in years. So we’ll just start with a dreary, great, dramatic, heartbreaking, the-fix-was-in, what-is-a-catch, receiver-did-not-survive-the-ground, wonderful, inspirational afternoon at the confluence of the Three Rivers.

It was a game in which the Steelers’ offense appeared to play directly to the strength of the Jaguars’ defense, while Roethlisberger had one of his worst performances as a pro, with five interceptions, two of which were pick-sixes. At the same time, the black-and-gold defense allowed Jags’ running back Leonard Fournette to break loose for 181 yards, with about half of those yards coming on a 90-yard, game-clinching TD run late in the fourth quarter.

Kamu Grugier-Hill, linebacker/punt-rusher, Philadelphia. With the Eagles surprisingly down 20-13 late in the first half against the woeful Giants, and Brad Wing back to punt for New York deep in his own territory, Grugier-Hill burst through the line over right guard and smothered the punt. Eagles ball, Giants’ 18. Three plays later, thanks to a Nick Foles touchdown pass, the Eagles took a 21-20 lead.


Five reasons why Raiders rehiring Jon Gruden Jersey is perfect

The Raiders once traded away Jon Gruden, only to see him win the Super Bowl against them the next season. As the team lured Gruden back to NFL head coaching with an offer he couldn’t refuse, it should be excited about returning to AFC championship level soon.
Men's Lonzo Ball Authentic Purple Adidas Jersey: NBA Los Angeles Lakers #2 Road
Vegas is a city of headliners, and soon the Raiders will be on the marquee there, entertaining miillions on Sundays. Gruden became a television superstar with ESPN and has a brand of his own that will further announce the Silver and Black’s presence when they arrive in their new home.

Brayden Point Mens Jersey There was always a danger in Gruden’s younger days that he would burn out, given how hard he worked to outcoach everyone. After being away for almost a decade (he last coached in 2008), you can bet he will be rejuvenated for the challenge and will appreciate interacting with younger players again on a regular basis. He should have learned well from his weaknesses after being fired by the Buccaneers, and he should have improved upon the strengths that made him the hottest coach in the league.

The timing for a Gruden-Raiders reunion was perfect, and both sides are in good position to take the best from the past and pour that into a more promising future.

Authentic Greg Lloyd Jersey New England hosts the Titans Saturday in their AFC divisional round matchup. The Patriots won the Super Bowl last year without Gronkowski on the active roster.

I’m excited, definitely. I wasn’t part of it last year, but not looking in the back, just looking forward to this game, Gronkowski said Tuesday in a press conference. I’m super excited to be back out there with the team. Just Logan Couture Youth jersey super excited today out there on the field with the boys again. We had a couple of days off. It’s my first playoff game in a while, so I’m excited, man. I’ve just got to take it one day at a time right now.

Gronkowski doesn’t know how long it took him to regain strength in his back, but he’s happy to took a patient approach to returning to the field.

I never came off of a surgery and said, ‘Oh, wow. I feel comfortable,’ he said. I mean, I can’t really give you the timeline like, ‘Oh, this many weeks,’ or whatever, but throughout them all I would say that you just can’t go full speed, even though your mindset is you want to be 100-percent ready to roll. But, just got to keep on sticking to the process, keep on sticking to the rehab, keep on going hard and everything will kick in.

While the Patriots are favored to win by 13 1/2 points, Gronkowski said there is no resting as they prepare for a pesky Titans team that rallied in the second half last week to beat the Chiefs.

Nick Foles Jersey can’t weigh down Eagles, because they can lift him up

The Eagles’ defense dominated in their 15-10 home NFC divisional playoff win over the Falcons on Saturday night. But because this is the playoffs, and because he’s their starting quarterback, Nick Foles is getting a ton of credit for the victory.

In reality, Foles got a ton of help. And that’s what one should expect out of a contending team with its eyes set on winning the Super Bowl.

1. How will Nick Foles fare? He was not very good in Philadelphia’s final two games. The Eagles (13-3) failed to score in a 6-0 loss to the Cowboys to close the season as Foles was just 4 of 11 for 39 yards with an interception in the loss. That was after he went 19 of 38 for 163 yards with a touchdown and interception in an ugly 19-10 win over the Raiders in Week 16.

Foles, who has thrown for 537 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions this season, will have to be at his best against an opportunistic Falcons defense that forced a pair of turnovers in last weekend’s 26-13 wild-card Marcus Williams Authentic Jersey win over the Rams.

2. A mid-season acquisition by the Eagles, the former Dolphins running back lit up the Falcons on Oct. 15. He ran for 130 yards on 26 carries in a 20-17 Dolphins victory in Atlanta.

The Eagles can help take some of the pressure off Foles with a heavy dose of Ajayi. While the third-year back was with the Dolphins, Miami went 7-0 whenever he had 24 or more carries. He ran for more than 200 yards in three of those games.

A Packers win Saturday seems unlikely. Green Bay was eliminated from playoff contention after a loss to the Panthers last Sunday coupled with the Falcons’ win at the Bucs on Monday night. Aaron Rodgers is back on injured reserve, and with Brett Hundley under center, Womens Tyrann Mathieu Jersey the Packers are 8.5-point underdogs vs. Minnesota.

Still, crazier things have happened.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Cameron Sutton, the Steelers’ third-round pick out of Tennessee in 2017, got the majority of first-team reps in practice Saturday while Burns ran with the second group.

Burns was part of the secondary, including Haden, that was only allowing 182 per game through nine games this season. However, after Haden was injured Burns saw his crew’s production plummet as they allowed 252 yards per game over their next five times out.

The 2016 first-round pick also has been called for 12 defensive penalties this season, which is the tied for the most among corners in the NFL.
