Безсмислености / A top tier run defense also helps, as the Panthers

According to reports, Tepper plans to return the capital base of his company Appaloosa management to it’s investors, and convert to a smaller family office.Appaloosa reportedly manages about $14 billion in assets, according to recent estimates, and there is currently no timetable scheduled for the return of this capital to the firm’s investors.The public reason for this move is to focus his attention on NFL ownership; from CNBC:Privately Will Grier Jersey , this may just be a convenient excuse to get out of the hedge fund game, which has become increasingly volatile in recent years. Whatever the reason, Tepper has more money than he could ever possibly need, so who could blame him and other hedge fund guys for wanting to get out of the game after being in it for 30-40 years?As to what this means for the team, having a very involved owner can be a dual edged sword. So far, we have seen many great things for the team’s charitable works in the community, and the enaction of more forward thinking policies regarding inclusion and the mental health of team employees. Involvement in football decisions can be where historically this could become a bad thing... but you have to look at this on a case by case basis. At this point, there isn't much evidence to say either way, so let’s just see where this ride takes us.

But I’m here to argue that they might be fine after recent events.EDTShareTweetShareShareThere’s more than one way to skin a cat (or in this case, a Panthers secondary)Will Rashaan Gaulden be enough alongside Eric Reid in 2019?Bob Donnan-USA TODAY SportsI’ll start this off by saying that I was an avid advocate for the Panthers signing or drafting another safety outside of Eric Reid this offseason. However, as the active part of free agency and the 2019 NFL Draft have come and gone, the Panthers still haven’t done anything aside from release veteran safety Da’Norris Searcy since signing Eric Reid. They also didn’t do much to address nickel corner, instead opting to see what they have on the roster. However, they have done enough that I’m willing to observe the offseason activities and training camp with an open mind, and here’s why.The Panthers drafted edge rusher Brian Burns in the first round, and edge rusher Christian Miller in the fourth round of the NFL Draft, indicating a big philosophical shift defensively. The Panthers have been known for a stout defensive line for most of their history, however for the last near-two decades it has been under a 4-3 front (four defensive lineman Brian Burns Jersey , three linebackers) as they let their front four do most of the work rushing the passer and setting the tempo in the trenches. After two seasons of becoming relatively more blitz oriented to create pressure (mainly because they needed to), the Panthers have went full on into a new defensive game plan, which is to rush from wherever and whenever they want. Combine those draft picks with acquiring defensive end/outside linebacker Bruce Irvin and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, and it has become clear the Panthers are doing something that should sound familiar. Let’s examine what their front seven looks like right now with projected starters (a 3-4 assumption).DE/OLB Mario Addison/Christian MillerDE/OLB Brian Burns/Bruce IrvinDT Kawann ShortDT Gerald McCoyNT Dontari PoeWith that front five backed up by Luke Kuechly and Shaq Thompson, it’s clear that the Panthers went all in on building back up a once stout front seven. The last time they had a truly elite front seven? Why, the 2013 season of course! With bookends Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy around an elite pairing of Kawann Short and Star Lotulelei, the Panthers linebacking core thrived, boasting an elite defense that helped bring them Cam Newton’s first appearance in the playoffs, and that was with a VERY sub par secondary. Let’s look at that starting group for a moment.CB Captain Munnerlyn (who shifted to nickel corner in three cornerback sets)CB Melvin WhiteCB Drayton FlorenceS Mike MitchellS Quinton MikellWhat a group of world beaters there, right? Well, that defense was arguably the best they’ve fielded since the early 2000s. But a stout front seven can often mask a mediocre-to-bad secondary. But guess what? This Panthers secondary is actually #prettygood.James Bradberry and Donte Jackson are by far the most talented starting two corners the Panthers have fielded since Josh Norman and Bene Benwikere/Charles Tillman Graham Gano Jersey , and before that, probably Chris Gamble and Ken Lucas. Behind them are safety Eric Reid, and 2018 3rd round pick Rashaan Gaulden, who appears penciled in as the starter opposite Reid barring an injury or a really terrible preseason. On top of that, the nickle corner position remains up in the air, as only Corn Elder has seen any real game snaps at nickel in this current crop of cornerbacks.But hey, it really isn’t all that bad. For starters, the Panthers could opt to use career outside zone corner Ross Cockrell as an outside corner in nickel sets, kicking Donte Jackson inside, which IS something he did in college. In addition, Ron Rivera’s defenses don’t usually have a set FREE safety and STRONG safety Julius Peppers Jersey , as the two share similar responsibilities and often take about 50/50 snaps at each spot. Rivera has made defenses work well with worse safeties (Mikell and Mitchell above for example), and usually the catalyst for a successful secondary is a strong front seven.The Panthers defense has been at its best when the Panthers can rush the passer effectively, it forces the ball to come out faster and allows the corners to be more aggressive with their coverage. A top tier run defense also helps, as the Panthers secondary can focus on their assignments like containing the outside rush and filling gaps in the interior. A good front seven is their best friend, and will help mask weaknesses where the secondary comes up short. Rush the passer, dictate the tempo, dominate the line of scrimmage, and you see profit on the back end.Could the Panthers benefit from trying to find another safety? Sure, absolutely, but they opted to double down on a strength rather than sign a safety off the street with the limited capital they had in the cap space, electing to see through their investment on Gaulden last season in the draft. They’ve given their secondary a better chance to succeed by loading up on pass rushing talent DJ Moore Color Rush Jersey , who make everybody’s jobs easier on passing plays when they play well. And with this hybrid front they claim to boast, pressure will come from all sides and keep the opposing offense on its toes. I’m not saying Gaulden will be a great starter, but we’ve seen the Panthers put together an elite overall unit with much worse on the back end. And heck, even if Gaulden doesn’t work out, Colin Jones has experience starting behind elite front sevens :)

For the most part D.J. Hayden Jersey , NFL coaches and executives respect the bright-line rules regarding offseason workouts. One of the exceptions continues to be Jaguars executive V.P. of football operations Tom Coughlin.Said Coughlin regarding players who chose not to attend voluntary workouts: “We’re close to 100 percent attendance — and quite frankly all of our players should be here.”The NFL declined to comment on Coughlin’s comments. But maybe nothing more needs to be said, given the plain language of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.From Article 21, Section 5(a): “No Club official may indicate to a player that the Club’s offseason workout program or classroom instruction is not voluntary.”“All our players should be here” represents an in-plain-sight indication that the sessions aren’t voluntary.The NFL Players Association has yet to respond to a request for comment on the matter. In 2017, the union pushed back twice against aggressive efforts by Coughlin to skirt the rules, from requiring players to submit to physicals to attempting to start the offseason program earlier than allowed.This time around, Coughlin has handed the NFLPA a smoking-gun violation of the rules. Given a history of tension that dates back more than a decade https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Cody-Kessler-Jersey , it will be a surprise if the union doesn’t try to take action against Coughlin’s decision to do a cannonball across a bright line. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)When All-Pro defensive end Calais Campbell re-watched his first season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, he noticed a recurring issue: The vaunted defense had chances to come up big late in games and failed.It happened in four of Jacksonville’s final five losses, including – and most memorably – in the AFC championship game at New England.Campbell felt as if the unit also could and should have done more against the Los Angeles Rams, Arizona and Tennessee.”When I study the tape and those situations, I realize that as good as we are we have so much room for growth https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com ,” Campbell said.With Campbell leading the way, ”finishing” has become the defense’s motto for 2018. The Jags expect to be better in those fourth-quarter situations, knowing one stop could be the difference in a league that has a penchant for tight games.”We have to have that mentality of crunch time,” Pro Bowl linebacker Telvin Smith said. ”We know we are not front-runners; we can bang with you. We just have to put our foot on your throat and keep it there from the beginning to the end.”Jacksonville’s defense was one of the best in the league in 2017. The group ranked second in points (16.8) and yards allowed (286.1) and first in yards per play (4.61), passing yards (169.9), third down rate (33.6 percent) and red zone rate (39.3 percent).The Jaguars also had 55 sacks and set a franchise record with 33 takeaways.In some games Jacksonville Jaguars Customized Jerseys , it wasn’t enough.Jacksonville had New England reeling in late January, leading 20-10 early in the fourth quarter. But the defense allowed Tom Brady to convert a third-and-18 play that led to a touchdown and later provided little resistance while trying to prevent the go-ahead score.In the regular-season finale at Tennessee, the Jaguars trailed 15-10 with about four minutes remaining but gave up two first downs that helped the Titans to run out the clock and essentially seal the victory.The defense also faltered twice down the stretch at Arizona in late November. The Jags led 17-16 in the fourth before getting torched for a long touchdown pass. They tied the game on the ensuing possession and kept it that way until Blaine Gabbert connected on two first-down passes in the final 16 seconds to set up a game-winning 57-yard field goal.Those three losses came on the road. The Rams found similar success against the Jags in Jacksonville.They were up 24-17 with about seven minutes to play and essentially put the game away by picking up three first downs that got them into field-goal range.”It’s not a conditioning thing. It’s a mental thing,” Jaguars safety Tashaun Gipson said. ”That is something that is easily correctable. You just have to go back to the drawing board and figure out what it is. It is nothing wrong with what we are doing, us schematically. It is not that we are not in shape. It is just we have to have that mentality.”You have to see the blood in the water. You have to go attack.”The Jaguars expect to see gains from returning 10 defensive starters and having all of them in the same scheme for a second straight year. They also anticipate continued improvement from star cornerback Jalen Ramsey as well as linebacker Myles Jack and defensive end Yannick Ngakoue.All that experience has Jacksonville making offseason tweaks to blitz schemes and third-down packages – and waiting for another late-game shot.”You have to go out there when you have an opportunity, when it presents itself Jacksonville Jaguars T-Shirts , whether it is a preseason game or during the regular season,” coach Doug Marrone said. ”Then, you have to step up and do it and that will prove that you are able to do those things.”I think that until you do that in those situations, there is always going to be a question mark. But having the thought of wanting to do that obviously helps because it keeps you aware of that situation.”—

When they needed it most Bobby Massie Jersey , the Philadelphia Eagles made all the plays.Carson Wentz threw for 239 yards and one touchdown, Jordan Howard ran for 82 yards and a score and the Eagles held on for a 22-14 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.The Bears had just 9 yards in the first half and trailed 19-0 before David Montgomery had a pair of 1-yard TD runs to make it a one-possession game in the fourth quarter.But Philadelphia put it away with 16-play, 69-yard drive capped by Jake Elliott's 38-yard field goal. Wentz completed all four of his third-down passes on the drive for first downs, and the Eagles held the ball for 8:14."We stayed on the field," Wentz said. "Those third downs were huge for us."Dallas Goedert turned a screen on third-and-9 into a 16-yard gain. Miles Sanders had a 15-yard reception on third-and-12 and Alshon Jeffery bounced back from two big drops to make a 13-yard catch on third-and-3."That was a heck of a drive," Goedert said. "We connected when we needed to. It was well-executed."The Eagles (5-4) have won two in a row after a pair of lopsided losses.The Bears (3-5) have lost four straight.Mitchell Trubisky was 10 of 21 for 125 yards and was sacked three times.The Bears went three-and-out on their first five possessions, gaining minus-10 yards. They didn't get a first down until the final minute of the first half."The score felt a lot worse than it was," Bears coach Matt Nagy said. "We just couldn't get going and it snowballed. One thing after the next."Wentz connected with Zach Ertz over the middle for a 25-yard touchdown pass to give the Eagles a 12-0 lead in the second quarter. Elliott missed the extra point wide right.Howard ran up the middle 13 yards for a TD on the opening drive of the third quarter, extending the lead to 19-0."I saw a big hole and tried to hit it as fast as I could," said Howard, who was nearly untouched.The Bears finally got going when Trubisky connected with Taylor Gabriel on a 53-yard pass to the Eagles 9 and Montgomery ran in from the 1. He leaped in from the 1 early in the fourth quarter.But Chicago couldn't complete the comeback."Losing sucks and you can tell we don't like it," Trubisky said. "On the sideline, you're trying to find solutions to how to spark this offense to get going. It could just be getting back to the simpler things. Go fast and let our guys roll."The Eagles had a first down at the Bears 5 on their opening drive https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/Adrian-Amos-Jersey , but settled for a 28-yard field goal by Elliott after Eddie Goldman sacked Wentz.Elliott kicked another 28-yarder on the next drive to make it 6-0.STATSWentz has thrown a TD pass in 12 straight games, tied with Seattle's Russell Wilson for longest active streak. ... Eagles have won 11 of last 15 against Chicago. ... Bears LB Khalil Mack had four tackles, including two for loss, one quarterback hit and one pass knockdown. ... Eagles DT Genard Avery had a half-sack in his debut with his new team.FAMILIAR FACESHoward averaged 4.3 yards per carry in his first game against his former team. Jeffery had four receptions for 36 yards and at least two drops."I did a lot more talking than I usually do," Howard said. "There was a lot more back-and-forth with the guys."HEALTHY SCRATCHEagles cornerback Sidney Jones, a second-round pick in 2017, didn't dress. Jones was projected to be a first-round pick before tearing his Achilles on his pro day. He has failed to live up to expectations in his two-plus seasons.INJURIESBears: Goldman (thigh) left in the second quarter. ... LB Isaiah Irving (quad) was inactive.Eagles: WR DeSean Jackson lasted just one series after returning to the lineup for the first time since suffering an abdomen injury in Week 2. He drew a pass interference on the first play and had a 5-yard catch. Coach Doug Pederson said Jackson was held out for precautionary reasons and will undergo more testing this week. ... LT Jason Peters (knee) and LB Nigel Bradham each missed their third straight game.UP NEXTBears: Host the Lions (3-3-1) next Sunday.Eagles: Host the Patriots (8-0) on Nov. 17 after a bye. The Oakland Raiders spent almost all of training camp and the week leading up to the season opener without star receiver Antonio Brown on the practice field.So while most outsiders figured his release two days before the opener would be as costly as last year's trade of pass rusher Khalil Mack, the Raiders believed they had a much-improved team capable of competing and showed that in a 24-16 victory Monday night over Denver."We tried to tell everybody all offseason, we weren't just blowing smoke," quarterback Derek Carr said. "We had a good football team even when (Brown) wasn't there. We knew if we had him, my goodness, that could be crazy because he's so good as a football player. But he's not here. And when it happened, honestly Jordan Howard Color Rush Jersey , it wasn't the same feeling as when Khalil Mack got traded. I'll just put it as that. It was not the same feeling. It was like OK, at least the question was answered. At least we have answers."For one night at least, the answers looked to be good ones. Carr played with much more confidence, showing needed growth in year two under coach Jon Gruden. The rookie class had a big impact from running back Josh Jacobs to defensive end Clelin Ferrell and safety Johnathan Abram.Perhaps most importantly, free agent receiver Tyrell Williams and tight end Darren Waller showed Oakland still has some capable pass catchers even with Brown in New England.Carr finished 22 for 26 for 259 yards, with an 8-yard TD pass to Williams on the opening drive.WHAT'S WORKINGJacobs was brought in to be the bell-cow back despite carrying the ball 20 times in a game just once in three seasons at Alabama. He thrived under a heavy load in the opener. He ran 23 times for 85 yards and two touchdowns and also caught a 28-yard pass that set up a touchdown. Jacobs became the first player since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2001 to gain at least 100 yards from scrimmage and run for two TDs in an NFL debut."This man wasn't really the feature back at Alabama. He's not drawing from a lot of experience," Gruden said. "I'm anxious to see how he feels today after 24 touches because we'd like to get him 24 more next week."WHAT NEEDS HELPAfter a strong first half when Denver was limited to 87 yards and no points, Oakland's defense wasn't nearly as effective in the final two quarters. The Broncos scored on four of five second-half drives as the Raiders appeared to wear down. The one positive for Oakland was that three of those scoring drives ended in field goals, thanks to a pair of third-down sacks and a dropped pass in the end zone.STOCK UPLT Kolton Miller. The 2018 first-round pick struggled mightily in his rookie season as he dealt with various injuries and the transition to the NFL. Miller allowed an NFL-worst 14 sacks last year, according to Sports Info Solutions, contributing to the 52 allowed as a team by the Raiders.Miller got tested in the opener going up mostly against Denver's Bradley Chubb, who had 12 sacks as a rookie. But Miller was part of a line that didn't allow Carr to get hit or sacked even once, the first time that has happened since Week 2 in 2017."We see a lot of progress Eddie Jackson Jersey ," Gruden said. "He's stronger, he's more experienced and he's healthy. Those three things added to his improvement."STOCK DOWNRookie CB Trayvon Mullen. Forced into action in the second half after Gareon Conley went down with a neck injury, Mullen was targeted repeatedly by Joe Flacco down the stretch. Mullen took a bad gamble, leading to a 22-yard pass to Emmanuel Sanders on Denver's last drive that was capped by Flacco's 1-yard TD throw to Sanders against Mullen."He has to play better," Gruden said. "He had some moments where he struggled."INJUREDThe Raiders got good news on Conley, who was taken off the field on a stretcher after a scary injury in the second half. Conley said on Twitter that the injury wasn't severe and he was "good to go."KEY NUMBERThree. After being limited to an NFL-worst 13 sacks last year after trading Mack before the start of the season, the Raiders knew they needed a more consistent pass rush to be successful this year. The early results were encouraging with free agent acquisition Benson Mayowa recording two sacks and No. 4 overall draft pick Ferrell adding one. The three sacks were the most for the Raiders since they also had three on Dec. 10, 2017, against Kansas City.NEXT STEPSThe degree of difficulty ramps up this week when the Raiders host Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City in a second straight division matchup. The Chiefs have won eight of the past nine games in the series. Oakland has started 2-0 just once since the 2002 AFC title year, winning the first two games in 2017 before stumbling to a 6-10 record.

Also Jimmy Garoppolo Color Rush Jersey , his conference call"The fourth round, is that higher than you were expecting to be taken?“Yes. I don’t know, you think punters normally get taken, like it sort of starts in the fifth. I feel like I really got along with coach [special teams coordinator Richard] Hightower and coach [assistant special teams coach Stan] Kwan, and I was hoping it would be San Fran, and I think San Fran were about two picks away, and I got a call, and I was like, ‘You are kidding me.’ Unbelievable.”And you met the two coaches when they came out for your Pro Day at Utah?“No, they didn’t come to the Pro Day, they came in person, like there was a personal workout where they came, we had dinner, went for a punt the next day.”You had three punts blocked last season. What do you have to do to tighten that up in the NFL?“I mean, I just have to work on my consistent get-off, make sure that doesn’t happen. I mean, I’ve been working a lot in the offseason. I feel like I’ve got everything tightened up, so I’m confident that that can be avoided easily.”Is it true you can kick with both feet?“I mean, I can kick with my left foot decent. It’s nothing pretty. I definitely prefer to put it on the right, but if necessary, I can throw it on the left and maybe get something out of it.”Are you also a holder?“Yes. I take a lot of pride in my holding.”What’s your kickoff history?“I kicked off in 2017. I haven’t 100-percent got down exactly my steps and stuff, but I feel like I’ve got a strong leg. Yeah, I’m confident kicking off.”Is that something that the 49ers discussed with you as something that they’d want you to do for them this year?“Potentially. In the workout I did some kickoffs. I was hitting the ball well. But yeah, I mean https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Fred-Warner-Jersey , they mentioned it’s obviously a weapon, either the kicker or the punter can kick off, but if they’re both good at it, it’s just a plus.”If you could, could you explain how you went from being an apprentice as a glass installer to now a punter in America?“So I played Australian League football and had a few shoulder injuries. I had two operations on my left shoulder, which sort of took me out of the action in the Aussie rules football. And then I sort of just for fun would go down and play flag American football with a couple of my mates at a park, and basically was seen there punting and messing around by a guy called Craig Wilson, who knows Nathan Chapman and John Smith at ProKick Australia, and then a few months later I was out fishing and got a call from John, and John told me he would change my life, send me to America, all that good stuff. I went home, told my folks that John Smith is going to send me to America, and they thought I was smoking something. I ended up just handing in my resignation at work, moving to Melbourne for a year to train and learn the standard two-punt spiral because we sort of learned to punt on the run in Australian football. Yeah, moved to Santa Barbara to junior college, played one year, did 18 months to finish my AA degree and then went to Utah for three.”Nathan spoke glowingly about you throughout the whole process. Can you talk about what it was like working with him? And you did it for a year, is that correct?“Yeah, about a year, and then he’ll come out to America and sort of help clean up guys’ styles as they develop bad habits over here and stuff like that. A year, but sort of on and off for five years now.”He said that if he could go back and do it all again, he would do it all differently. What were some of the things that he taught you to kind of ease your transition into the NFL?“Well, I think he basically tried to come straight from Australia into the NFL Tarvarius Moore Jersey , and it’s a lot different kicking big, like kicking big high punts in the park with no rush, no helmet, no pressure, no crowd noise, nothing like that, to going straight into the NFL. There’s not many guys that go into college and have their freshman year as like an outstanding year. You learn things along the way. You learn how to read punt return units and stuff like that, where to put the ball. So I think he sort of, he slowly changed his sort of main objective to go instead of straight to NFL, to college, that way you earn yourself a name, you sort of get more exposure, and then it’s easier for you to transition into the NFL from there.”Is it a little different for you being your age and then being at college with a lot of guys that are quite a bit younger than you?“No, but also I went to Utah where there’s lots of returned missionaries. So like when I first got there, Andy Phillips, my kicker, I think was 27, and he was one of my best mates, like punter/kicker. Chase Hansen is my age, who’s in the draft this year. There’s a few older guys. But no, I feel like most people in sports sort of have the same mindset and we’re all working towards the same goal, so age doesn’t, never really played too much of a part.”We saw you doing a fake punt on one of the highlights that they showed. Is that something that you enjoy doing? Does it bring you back to your Aussie rules football days?“Yeah, I love it. I feel like throwing in a fake can sort of keep opposition honest. You can’t turn your back and do all hold up. You can’t double both gunners and leave the box short or anything like that. I feel like it keeps the opposition on their toes and also it’s a serious rush to run the ball.”Where are you calling from right now?“I’m in Santa Barbara. I’m at my girlfriend’s house in Santa Barbara.” Today we take a closer look at one of the top rated defensive tackles Ed Oliver and see if he is a fit for the 49ers should the team trade down from the second overall pick."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections 49ers Salary CapLevi’s Stadium Events49ers Transactions49ers Injury News49ers Press Conferences & Conference CallsNFL DraftNFL Draft Scouting Reports2019 NFL Draft: 49ers picks Kentavius Street Color Rush Jersey , mock drafts, news, rumors, analysisNFL Draft Profile: Defensive Tackle Ed Oliver of HoustonNew,10commentsToday we take a closer look at one of the top rated defensive tackles Ed Oliver and see if he is a fit for the 49ers should the team trade down from the second overall pick.PDTShareTweetShareShareNFL Draft Profile: Defensive Tackle Ed Oliver of HoustonTroy Taormina-USA TODAY SportsGreetings Faithful! Happy draft weekend! We have finally arrived at the doorsteps of the 2019 NFL Draft! We will finally get all of our questions answered and see who will become the newest members of the San Francisco 49ers. Currently the 49ers own the second overall pick. Who will they select at number two? Will they trade down? Will they trade down more than once? The possibilities are endless, and of course…anything and everything is fair game once the Arizona Cardinals are on the clock.Way back when I started coverage for the 2019 NFL Draft the first prospect I discussed was Ed Oliver. I thought it would only be fitting if Oliver was the last scouting report I produced before the clock started ticking later this evening. Ed Oliver is a monster and if there wasn’t someone named Quinnen Williams in this draft class, Oliver might be a top 3 lock…Who knows, he still might. Now, what if the 49ers trade down a few spots and have their sights set on Oliver? Let’s take a closer look and see how Oliver can be a great fit along the 49ers defensive line.Combine Results:40 Time: 4.73 (Pro Day)Bench Press: 32 RepsVertical Jump: 36.0”Broad Jumps: 120.0”Short Shuttle: 4.22 (Pro Day)3 Cone Drill: 7.15 (Pro Day)Measurables: Height: 6”2”Weight: 287 lbs.Hands: 9 1/4”Arms: 31 ¾”Summary:Ed Oliver was an absolute force on the Cougars defensive line in 2018. No other lineman dealt with more double team and even triple team coverages than Oliver. Oliver does an incredible job winning the first contact. Oliver is explosive when making contact with blockers. Will fight and play through gaps at an elite level. Oliver has a high motor and is explosive off the ball. Has exceptional flexibility and is constantly creating disruption and chaos in the opponent’s backfield. Is able to follow through tight angles, while twisting his body and adjust his frame when rushing the passer. Many times, Oliver was fighting through initial contact with ease against blockers along the line of scrimmage. Breaks up plays well with his hands, throwing up his arms in passing lanes. Oliver has a natural blend of speed and power up the middle. Because of all the attention he requires, Oliver creates positive opportunities for his teammates along the line. I expect this will continue for Oliver when he settles at the pro level. Oliver has a bright future in the NFL and I’ll be shocked if he slips outside the top ten.Is Ed Oliver a fit for the San Francisco 49ers?John Glaser-USA TODAY SportsWithout a doubt Oliver is a fit for the 49ers. Oliver has all the tools and traits you can ask for from an interior defensive lineman. His explosive playmaking and quickness off the line are rare and jaw-dropping to watch. Yes, his sack level dropped this past season, but I suppose we can credit the double and triple coverage teams put on Oliver all season long. Even with all that extra coverage, Oliver still recorded 53 tackles for a loss in just three seasons. As I mentioned last week with Quinnen Williams, Ed Oliver would form a dynamic two-headed monster with DeForest Buckner within the interior of the defensive line. In other words, they will cause many fits and headaches for offensive linemen and keep them on their toes. The more I study and watch Oliver the more he reminds me of Aaron Donald. Oliver is a week one, three-down starter at the next level. If the 49ers trade down a few spots keep a close eye on Ed Oliver as the potential pick for the team. What the team will get is a day one playmaker along the defensive line along with additional draft capital via the trade down. It very well could be the win-win scenario that John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have up their sleeves.What are YOUR thoughts on Ed Oliver? If the San Francisco 49ers trade down to Oliver’s range would you select him? Please share in the comments below!On one final note, as always, I want to thank everyone who takes the time to read my articles and shares their thoughts and feedback in the comments below!

Former British Prime Minister David Cameron has recalled being told by Prince William to imagine an American FIFA voter naked to ease nerves at a presentation for England’s World Cup bid in a process that was mired in wrongdoing.Cameron and the prince led an English delegation to Zurich in 2010 which tried to bring the 2018 World Cup to England. But England was knocked out in the first round Cheap England Soccer Team Uniform , winning only two votes from the since-discredited and tainted FIFA executive committee as Russia emerged victorious to host the global soccer showpiece.Many of the voters were later embroiled in investigations or banned, with Cameron writing in his new autobiography that “the corrupt undertones were all there.”Chuck Blazer, who later fueled much of a devastating FBI investigation of corruption linked to soccer, was among the voters who received presentations in December 2010 from the World Cup bidding nations.“My role was to kick it off with a short, off-the-cuff speech,” Cameron wrote in the book that was published Thursday. “I confessed to Prince William I was nervous. He told me not to be and just to imagine Chuck Blazer naked.”Cameron had met earlier in Zurich with Blazer, who was the largest man among the 22 voters.“Blazer was so enormous that as he got up to leave www.thetopsoccer.com/national-team-kit/france , his chair went with him,” Cameron wrote in “For the Record.”After becoming an FBI informant, Blazer confessed to taking bribes in the votes for the 1998 and 2010 World Cups. He died in 2017.During the World Cup bidding, FIFA was led by Sepp Blatter who is now serving a six-year ban by the FIFA ethics committee after being forced from office in 2015. Blatter visited Cameron in Downing Street in 2010 ahead of the World Cup vote.“He even got to hold (daughter) Florence a privilege reserved for presidents and monarchs, I joked at the time,” Cameron wrote. “Looking back … it makes me wince.”Cameron said the corruption at FIFA reflected an issue “that proved to be more prevalent than I had expected.”“Those same forces that had denied Britain the World Cup,” Cameron wrote Cheap Germany Soccer Team Uniform , “bribery, lack of transparency, collusion, fraud were depriving people around the world of safer, healthier, wealthier lives.” Goncalo Paciencia scored twice as Eintracht Frankfurt defeated Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 to prevent the visitors from going top of the Bundesliga on Friday.The Portuguese striker got the home side off to a flying start in the fourth minute, holding off Aleksandar Dragovic’s challenge after he was played through by Danny da Costa and staying cool to beat goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky.Dragovic’s evening went further downhill 12 minutes later www.thetopsoccer.com/national-team-kit/italy , when he conceded a clear penalty for handball. The Austria defender was booked and Paciencia converted the spot kick for his second goal.Article continues below ...Leverkusen pushed hard for a way back, but found Frankfurt goalkeeper Frederik Rönnow in fine from.Rönnow blocked Lucas Alario’s effort and Julian Baumgartlinger’s rebound attempt before Frankfurt launched a counterattack that ended with Paciencia using his heel to set up Bas Dost to score. The goal was ruled out, however, as the Dutch forward was just offside.Leverkusen were awarded a penalty in the 71st when Gelson Fernandes appeared to handle the ball, but referee Christian Dingert changed his decision after consulting video replays. The ball struck Fernandes’ face.Dost finally sealed the result in the 80th minute after holding off three defenders to prod the ball past Hradecky.Frankfurt joined Leverkusen and four other teams on 14 points, two behind early leader Borussia Mönchengladbach.

The NFL's oldest offensive backfield tandem got off to a running start once the Buffalo Bills opened training camp Thursday.At 36 https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Will-Richardson-Jersey , Frank Gore refused to let what he called a "cramping" issue prevent him from taking part. Gore was activated off the non-football injury list upon passing his physical a few hours before practice."I had to," said the 15-year veteran, who signed a one-year contract with Buffalo in March. "My first year here, I wanted to be out there with my team to show them how much I do care about this team and helping this team be successful."As for LeSean McCoy, the just-turned 31-year-old let his legs do the talking amid questions of him losing a step coming off his least productive season . Working with the starting offense, McCoy reeled off a number of impressive runs both up the middle and around the edges during the no-contact session in which players went without pads.Though McCoy declined to speak to reporters following practice, general manager Brandon Beane cleared up whatever doubts there might be regarding the running back's status on the team.Asked about the "outside noise" revolving around McCoy, Beane said "there's not any inside noise," and chalked the rumors up to media having nothing to report with the Bills off since mid-June."When Sean and Brian Daboll roll the ball out Logan Cooke Color Rush Jersey , LeSean's going to be the first running back to touch the ball," Beane said, referring to coach Sean McDermott and Daboll, the offensive coordinator. "That's the way we see it."It made no difference to Beane that McCoy's 514 yards rushing and 752 yards from scrimmage were career lows for the 11-year veteran; or that he's set to make a $6.175 million base salary in the final year of his contract; or that Buffalo expanded its stable of running backs by signing TJ Yeldon in free agency and used a third-round pick to draft Devin Singletary."He's handled the challenge all through the spring," Beane said. "I think he sees the competition. He hasn't shown that he's afraid of it or has a problem with it. So that's where that sits." Gore and McCoy might be old by any NFL standard, and yet they also represent the most productive backfield in NFL history. Gore ranks fourth overall and leads active players with 14,748 yards rushing. McCoy is 25th overall and third among active players with 10,606 yards rushing.Gore got a firsthand glimpse at how driven McCoy (also known as 'Shady') is after the two continued their tradition of spending the offseason working out together in Florida."Every year as a back you've got individual goals and when you don't hit them, you should be upset Andrew Norwell Jersey ," Gore said. "And me knowing 'Shady' for a while, he's very motivated this year. ... He's going to compete. He'll be on top of his game."The Bills could use the push given how their once-dominant running attack went from leading the league in both 2015 and '16 to dropping to ninth last year. And much of the reason Buffalo still finished in the top 10 was Josh Allen setting the single-season franchise record for quarterbacks with a team-leading 631 yards rushing — or 117 more than McCoy.Aside from the running game, the entire offense is under the microscope entering training camp after undergoing a massive offseason overhaul.Buffalo upgraded a young and untested group of receivers by adding speedster John Brown and slot receiver Cole Beasley in free agency. And Buffalo placed a large emphasis on retooling what had been a patchwork offensive line by signing six free agents, including center Mitch Morse, and selecting tackle Cody Ford in the second round.Identifying a starting lineup and getting it to jell on offense is one of the Bills' most pressing needs before the start of the season."That is one of our challenges right now is the lack of continuity on the offensive side. And we understand that," McDermott said. "We'd like to find it as quickly as possible."NOTES: McCoy is scheduled to speak to reporters this weekend. ... Buffalo opened camp with four new starters on the line, including Ford at right tackle. Left tackle Dion Dawkins was the only returning starter to retain his spot. ... The Bills have only nine more sessions at camp before opening the preseason hosting Indianapolis in two weeks. Buffalo then travels to Carolina to hold joint practices with the Panthers before playing them in a preseason game on Aug. 16. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars waived two former draft picks in final roster cuts Saturday, including quarterback and sixth-round draft pick Tanner Lee.The Jaguars also cut speedy cornerback Jalen Myrick https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Austin-Seferian-Jenkins-Jersey , a seventh-round pick in 2017. Undrafted rookie Tre Herndon, from Vanderbilt, beat out Myrick for the fifth and final cornerback spot.Jacksonville kept two quarterbacks: Blake Bortles and backup Cody Kessler. The team likely will sign Lee to the practice squad if he clears waivers.A two-year starter at Tulane (2014-15) who finished his college career at Nebraska, Lee completed 15 of 30 passes for 201 yards in the preseason. He was sacked five times.The Jaguars also parted with several players who stood out in training camp and the preseason, including cornerback Quenton Meeks; running backs Tim Cook and Brandon Wilds; receivers Montay Crockett, DeAndre Smelter and Shane Wynn; defensive end Carroll Phillips; and offensive lineman William Poehls.Jacksonville also released veteran defensive tackle Sealver Siliga and placed defensive end Dante Fowler on the suspended by commissioner list. Fowler was suspended one game for a 2017 arrest. He will rejoin the team Sept. 10 and won’t count against the team’s 53-man roster for Week 1.The Jaguars placed veteran cornerback Kenneth Acker on injured reserve. They also waived injured linebacker Manase Hungalu and tight ends DeAndre Goolsby and Ben Koyack.Others waived: offensive lineman Tony Adams, cornerback Bryce Canady, cornerback Dee Delaney, linebacker Nick DeLuca Niles Paul Color Rush Jersey , defensive end Hunter Dimick, offensive lineman Michael Dunn, tight end David Grinnage, linebacker Reggie Hunter, defensive end Darius Jackson, defensive lineman Lyndon Johnson, linebacker Deon King, receiver Allen Lazard, offensive lineman KC McDermott D.J.

BOURBONNAIS https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/Adam-Shaheen-Jersey , Ill. (AP) — There was a shoving incident, a coach screaming at his players and the usual unresolved kicking competition.The Chicago Bears broke Bourbonnais training camp after Sunday’s practice and headed back for Halas Hall without finding the answer to their greatest problem.They’ll continue their search for a kicker between Eddy Pineiro and Elliott Fry after the two combined for five misses Sunday, with the acquisition of another kicker still a possibility.“We’re evaluating them, again, looking at what they do in these preseason games is going to be really the true test,” coach Matt Nagy said of his kickers. “But we’re looking for that production.”Nagy said he doesn’t expect all the kicks to be made, even if the goal is production.“They’re probably exactly where I thought they’d be,” Nagy said. “I mean, it’s one preseason game. I’m anxious to see how this thing is going to go after four total preseason games and really hopefully they can get some decent attempts and we get a feel for it.”Beyond kicker, the Bears are virtually where they were heading into camp, although wide receiver Anthony Miller is now out with a right ankle sprain and tight end Trey Burton continues to miss practices after a slow recovery from sports hernia surgery.Burton was expected to be back for the start of camp, practiced five days and has been out resting ever since.“This plan that we have, we’ll slowly just kind of get him back, see how he’s feeling and we’ll go off of that,” Nagy said. “We want to make sure he’s right for Sept. 5.“Quite honestly, I could(n’t) care less about the preseason.”Burton’s surgery was in the spring. He missed the preseason opener and has been running on the side the past two practices.“It’s been really frustrating,” Burton said. “I want to be out there with the guys. I can’t stand sitting on the sideline and not playing. It’s really, really been frustrating from that standpoint, but I know there’s a bigger picture in mind.”Nagy called the training camp a success because he knows more about new players. In particular, safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and running back David Montgomery have stepped up.Montgomery ran for 16 yards on three attempts with a touchdown and caught three passes for 30 yards in the preseason-opening 23-13 loss to Carolina and it’s possible his carries will get limited through the rest of preseason. The Bears play at the Giants on Friday night.“Put it this way: I’m going to protect David from David,” Nagy said. “Take that for what it’s worth.”Clinton-Dix started camp watching after a knee sprain in organized team activities during the spring. However, he quickly got off the physically unable to perform list and began producing. The former Packers and Redskins safety picked off quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in scrimmage during the final practice for what would have been a pick-6.“I haven’t been part of a group like this since I was a rookie in the league,” Clinton-Dix said. “Being able to be around this many guys with this much talent, elite players in the front seven Mitchell Trubisky Color Rush Jersey , it’ll make my job a lot easier.”One key goal for the offense heading into camp was getting Mitchell Trubisky and the receivers more in sync. They don’t view Clinton-Dix’s interception or any in a series of interceptions Trubisky has thrown in recent practices as a cause for concern.“Yesterday he had two throws, probably his two best throws of camp that he threw that there’s not that many quarterbacks in this league can make that throw,” Nagy said. “He had two of them yesterday. Today he tried to squeeze one in there right at the end of practice, in between Buster (Skrine) and the safety and Buster jumped up and tipped it.“The last thing I told him was that I’m glad that he forced that, that I’m glad that he tested it.”The Bears closed camp with tempers growing short, perhaps an indication it was time to leave. Guard Kyle Long and defensive end Akiem Hicks engaged in a brief shoving match, and offensive line coach Harry Hiestand also gave lineman a loud tongue-lashing at one point in practice.“They get it,” Nagy said. “They’ve seen coaches get on them before. That’s not a first time. They react well. And they’re all, again I’m going to always revert back to that when you have high character people, they can handle that.”NOTES: Outside linebacker Aaron Lynch was held out of Sunday’s practice with a shoulder injury. … Tight end Adam Shaheen is practicing now after missing Thursday’s preseason game because of back soreness. … Wide receiver Riley Ridley has returned to practice after suffering a hamstring pull the first day of practices. Third Quarter Statistics ReviewAs the Bears finished up the third quarter of the 2018 season with a disappointing loss to the New York Giants, there are a few statistics that are still very promising for this team moving forward. As we did earlier this year, we’ll take a look at a couple of the more important team statistics and hit up some interesting individual numbers. Turnover DifferentialI’m going to spend some time on this one and I’m going to do a little math so buckle in for the ride. Remember that turnover differential is the number of takeaways your defense creates minus the number of turnovers your offense commits. A positive number is good, negative number is bad. I put together a dataset for the 2006-2017 seasons (all readily available data) for turnover differential for the entire league. My first step was to add up the number of teams over the 12 year period that finished the year with each distinct turnover differential. The worst turnover differential was last year’s Cleveland Browns at negative 28, not particularly surprising for a team that failed to win a game. The best seasons are owned by the 2010 Patriots and 2011 49ers at +28. I then plotted these results on a simple scatter plot below.A quick guide to reading this chart – there were 20 teams in the 12 year period that finished the year with a turnover differential of zero, indicated by the blue diamond at the 0, 20 intersection. Each blue diamond indicates the number of teams that recorded a season with that final turnover differential. As we move further away from zero in either direction, the number of teams finishing with that specific turnover differential decreases in a very predictable statistical manner. The basic shape (that kind of looks like a mountain) indicated by the solid line shows us a pretty standard normal curve or “bell curve” that you may remember from math class. So far, this was exactly what I expected to see. I then calculated the standard deviation. I know, more math, but stick with me. The standard deviation allows us to read the chart above to make a little better sense of the data and averages. The standard deviation for this dataset clocked in at 9.5, meaning that any team that finished with a turnover differential of +10 or better was at least one standard deviation above the average (top ~15% of the league) and worth looking at a little closer. Why would I want to do that? The Bears currently lead the league with a +12 in turnover differential.I then pulled out just the seasons of +10 turnover differential or greater and married this with the number of regular season wins that team earned over the course of the regular season. Of the 384 seasons in the dataset, only 55 had a turnover differential of +10 or better (14.3%). Of those 55 team seasons, 46 made the playoffs, 11 made the Super Bowl Pat O'Donnell Jersey , and 6 won the championship game. Again, the chart below is a scatter plot with turnover differential increasing left to right, and regular season wins increasing bottom to top.There’s really only 1 outlier – the 2013 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That was the Mike Glennon season and while they lost some close games, they are a bit of a surprise to see on here. Otherwise, some pretty good company on this list. Of the 8 other teams that failed to make the playoffs, 5 teams recorded 9 wins while 2 teams recorded 8. The final team, the 2012 Chicago Bears, won 10 games but missed the playoffs due to some tie breakers and started a 5-year nightmare of fandom. We might consider this an outlier the other way as a turnover differential of +20 likely should have netted the Bears about 12 wins. The 2018 Bears appear poised to finish somewhere in the chart above with a chance to finish with some very good teams. While there are plenty of successful playoff teams that haven’t been very good in this stat, the ball hawking nature of this defense is the reason this team is in the position it currently enjoys and appears to be a winning signature for these Bears. If we look at the other teams clustered around the Bears at the top of this category for 2018, we find the Rams (+11) and Seahawks (+11) one below and the Saints in the hunt with a +9. With the exception of the Rams, the Bears remaining opponents may offer a course to increasing that number as the Packers (0) and Vikings (+1) are around the league average while the 49ers (-20) are ranked 32nd.This year has been dominated by offensive story lines like the Chiefs and Saints, but stealing possessions and scoring with your defense while taking care of the ball on the other side never goes out of style. Toxic Differential Toxic Differential takes the turnover differential and adds in explosive play statistics. An explosive play varies by the site, but the toxic differential numbers that I track are runs of 10 or more yards and passing plays of 25 or greater. The Bears have been particularly good at limited explosive plays as a defense, ranking at or near the top all season. One of the impressive things to note is that the Bears didn’t lose the turnover differential in an individual game until last week against the Giants and have only lost the explosive plays differential once to the Dolphins in week 6. This is a great season-long stat to track, but it’s also useful to think about during a game. Keeping a mental tally can help you get a sense of where the game is going. Defensive DVOAFootball Outsiders does an incredible job with their DVOA statistics as they are able to compare defenses across the league adjusting for opponents. It’s a much better way to compare defenses than, say, just looking at scoring or total yards. The Bears have been darlings of this statistic all season, are heavy favorites to finish the year as the top defense, and are closing in on competing with the top rated teams of the past few years too. It’s worth keeping an eye on this as the Bears get closer to securing a playoff berth because that may be the element that, from a competitive standpoint, is able to break through some of these outstanding offenses. The teams of the recent past that have won Super Bowls led with a dominant defense - the Broncos and Seahawks - are teams that show up similarly to these 2018 Bears. Currently, the Bears own the top rated rush defense and the top rated pass defense. The last team to do that? The 2012 Bears. Briefly on Khalil Mack, Mitchell Trubisky, and Tarik CohenUnfortunately https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/Kyle-Long-Jersey , injuries have robbed us of a full season of Mack and Trubisky. Mack’s injury against the Dolphins rendered him fairly useless for that game and the Patriots contest before missing two weeks to fully heal. Mack’s numbers are impressive – 9 sacks, 7 tackles for loss, 5 forced fumbles, and a pick 6. What he’s done to open up the defense is obviously more impressive and shows up as that defensive DVOA ranking and the amazing toxic differential numbers. I don’t think Mack will win the Defensive Player of the Year Award with Aaron Donald wrecking opponents for the high flying Rams, but he’s in great shape to earn a 1st Team All-Pro honor. The numbers he’s putting up and awards and honors he will receive will continue to build his Hall of Fame resume. For a franchise blessed with the best linebacker history in the NFL, this next chapter is going to be fun. As for Trubisky, the 2 games missed means that Erik Kramer is likely going to retain his single season passing records for one more season. What seemed like a foregone conclusion a month ago is now going to take an amazing December. I’m not going to doubt that Trubisky can do it, but he’ll need to average 343 yards per game to close out the year. It’s worth throwing my tracker out one more time to see where he was at in chasing the team record. Finally, I had been curious to start the season just how Tarik Cohen would fit into the new offense and whether or not some of the Darren Sproles comparisons would start to take shape or not. Taking a look at the numbers that are, admittedly, buoyed by his amazing individual performance against the Giants, Cohen looks to be on pace to post some impressive numbers. Before the season started, way back in June, I got into a little Twitter tiff with someone who said there was no way Cohen would get to 60 catches, let alone the 70-75 I was hoping to see him get. Sitting at 59 with 4 games to go, I feel pretty good about my prediction. I’m hard pressed to see why Cohen can’t be compared to Sproles and in fact, he’s been more effective at this point in his career. Sproles’ best season came in 2011, his first with Drew Brees where he caught 86 balls for 710 yards. Cohen may not get close to the 86 mark, but he already has 59 grabs and 659 yards for 4 scores. Let’s say Tarik finishes with something like 75-850 receiving, he has a chance to lead the team in those categories. He’s proven to be a good runner as a 100 carry-per-year guy and he adds juice in the return game. He’s a fun and valuable piece of the future of this offense and yet another great pick by the Ryan Pace regime. What numbers jump out to you as we enter the final quarter of the season?

CAMBRIDGE Nick Bosa 49ers Jersey , Mass. (AP) — Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and comedian Dave Chappelle are among eight people being honored by Harvard University for their contributions to black history and culture, the university announced Thursday.All eight recipients of the W.E.B. Du Bois Medal will be honored Oct. 11 by the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard.“The medal honors those who have made significant contributions to African and African-American history and culture, and more broadly, individuals who advocate for intercultural understanding and human rights in an increasingly global and interconnected world,” the Hutchins Center said.Kaepernick Y.A. Tittle Jersey , formerly of the San Francisco 49ers, created a firestorm when he began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 to protest police brutality and social injustice. He has more recently been the centerpiece of an advertising campaign by Nike.He has donated and helped raise millions of dollars for organizations fighting social injustice, and founded the Know Your Rights Camp.Chappelle is a writer and producer who has appeared in several movies, hosted his own show on Comedy Central and earned a Grammy and two Emmys.The other honorees are Kenneth Chenault, chairman and a managing director of General Catalyst; Shirley Ann Jackson https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Steve-Young-Jersey , president of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; Pamela Joyner, founder of Avid Partners, LLC; psychologist and author Florence Ladd; Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative; and artist Kehinde Wiley.“Emerging from a variety of backgrounds and professions, each represents the quest for knowledge Nick Mullens Color Rush Jersey , freedom of expression, and pursuit of truth that are foundational to black history and culture, and that were foundational to Du Bois as a thinker and activist,” said Henry Louis Gates Jr., director of the Hutchins Center. We’ve been getting into prediction season in a big way. Last week http://www.49erscheapstore.com/nick-bosa-jersey-cheap , ESPN boldly predicted that Earl Thomas would be going to the 49ers, and today, we have John Clayton doubling down on not just Thomas, but Antonio Brown joining him in San Francisco. Not only do the 49ers get those two, but they also will improve 8-8 or better according to his prediction: The Brown situation is a convoluted one. There’s issue of Brown’s alleged domestic dispute. While an investigation is ongoing and Brown’s representatives are claiming no wrongdoing Joe Montana Color Rush Jersey , it’s one of those things that until it’s resolved, I don’t think the 49ers will want much to do with it. Brown bid adieu to Steelers fans on Tuesday, and while he has reportedly requested a trade, it’s up to Pittsburgh to actually make it happen. Brown’s value has been rumored to have fallen to a 4th round pick, and it’s difficult to see the Steelers dealing him for 30 cents on the dollar.Earl Thomas coming to the 49ers makes far better sense than the Dallas Cowboys and if the 49ers could land him and Brown https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Deion-Sanders-Jersey , 8-8 or better makes a ton of sense. While Thomas may want to go to the Cowboys, that chance to beat the Seahawks twice a year and play with Richard Sherman again might be too good to pass up. What do you think of a prediction for both of them coming to the 49ers?
