Chiefs this week and saw Tyreek Hill moving all over the field White Lawrence Guy Jersey , Kareem Hunt bulldozing for first downs, Travis Kelce making acrobatic catches, and Patrick Mahomes delivering the ball to all of them.Then he was asked what worries him most about facing the Chiefs on Sunday night."Everything," Lewis said, adding a halfhearted laugh.Yes, the banged-up Bengals (4-2) and their struggling defense are headed to Arrowhead Stadium for a high-profile showdown against quite possibly the most dynamic offense in the NFL.They are also doing it with a handful of guys ailing or injured, notably in a secondary that will have to find a way to slow Hill and Kelce. All those injuries nearly crippled the Bengals last week, when Pittsburgh drove the length of the field in the fourth quarter for the winning touchdown."It makes it harder, yeah," Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap said, "but we have 1A and 1B. Everybody is trained to get in the game because you're always one play away. You never know when it is."Injuries aren't an excuse, either."''We've got guys down. I believe in those (backup) guys," Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. "I feel we've got all the tools, even the backup guys, to beat this team."The Chiefs (5-1), who are coming off their first loss last Sunday night in New England, know all about being hurt. They remain without injured safeties Eric Berry, Daniel Sorensen and Armani Watts, top pass rusher Justin Houston and two starters on the offensive line.They still have Mahomes, though. Not to mention all his weapons.That group struggled in the first half against the Patriots, but adjustments at halftime opened up things. Mahomes wound up throwing four TD passes, three to Hill http://www.authenticsnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-adam-butler-jersey , and the Chiefs nearly outscored Tom Brady and Co. in what became an entertaining shootout."Everyone is still in great spirits," Mahomes said after his first loss as a starting quarterback, which came seven games into his NFL career. "We know there's a lot of season left. There's going to be ups and downs, but you have to know that's going to happen. It's how you respond that matters."Mahomes said the vibe all week has been positive, and that the loss to New England only served to embolden a team with Super Bowl aspirations. After all, the Chiefs trailed most of the way, on the road and in prime time, and nearly came back to steal a victory."We finished hard. We fought every play," Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins said. "You saw the grit on the sideline and we're here to build on that. You're not going to lead every game 28-0."As the Bengals try to slow down Kansas City, here are some things to know:BANGED-UP BENGALSThere were no fewer than 15 players listed on Cincinnati's initial injury report this week, and six of those didn't participate at all to start the week. That included three defensive players in cornerback Darqueze Dennard, linebacker Nick Vigil and safety Shawn Williams.FLEX AND POSEThe Chiefs' high-flying offense and the Bengals' strong start resulted in the game being flexed by NBC to Sunday night. It was originally supposed to be a noon CDT kickoff."Every game is a big stage. This is the NFL," Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones said, dismissing the fact they're in prime time for the second straight week. "You want to play every game like it's your last."ON THE HUNTThe Chiefs have leaned on Hunt late in games to protect leads, but he was a big part of their comeback a week ago. Hunt ran for 80 yards on just 10 carries and caught five passes for 105 yards and a score. He also was overthrown down the middle of the field on what could have been another long TD reception."You can't miss those when you play really good teams," Mahomes said.BLITZBURGH HANGOVERThe Bengals' 28-21 loss to Pittsburgh wiped out much of their early momentum and evened things in the AFC North. It was another stunning loss against their biggest nemesis — the Steelers have won seven straight in the series, including a comeback win in the 2015 playoffs. They know they can't afford another bad showing in Kansas City as they approach the midway point of the season."I would say we do have a chip on our shoulders," defensive end Jordan Willis said.WHAT ABOUT BURFICTIn his second game back from his latest NFL suspension, Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was on the field for 84 percent of the defense's plays against Pittsburgh and finished second with eight tackles and two passes deflected. He also was in the middle of several altercations, trading words with Ben Roethlisberger, stepping over James Conner in the end zone, and hitting Antonio Brown in the head with his forearm after a reception.Burfict has been suspended three times by the league and was ejected from a game last season. The Bengals need him to continue making an impact on games White Jeremy Hill Jersey , without the drama."Vontaze can be as great as he wants to be," Dunlap said. The NFL doesn't want players worrying about getting flagged or fined."You gotta play," NFL football operations chief Troy Vincent said Tuesday at the league's fall meetings. "You hope that no player is thinking about a rule. We want them to play (with a) free mind where you're just free and you play."Chiefs rookie linebacker Breeland Speaks said he didn't take Tom Brady down because he was concerned about a roughing-the-passer penalty in the fourth quarter of Kansas City's 43-40 loss at New England on Sunday night. Brady eluded Speaks and ran 4 yards for a touchdown to give the Patriots the lead."We watched that video and watched that play and Tom did what we've seen Tom do a thousand times," Vincent said."He stepped up in the pocket and the defender didn't make a play or didn't create a sack, but you don't want any player thinking about a penalty or being fined but you hope that he would make that adjustment on some of the things we've put in place and that's not just for his opponent's protection but for his as well."Overall, roughing-the-passer calls are down since the competition committee clarified to game officials the techniques used in such hits during a conference call last month. There were 34 roughing calls through the first three weeks and 19 in the three weeks since the call.Vincent said the league didn't advise officials to cut down on the calls, but emphasized to them making sure they see it clearly."If you don't see the complete play, don't call it," Vincent said. "That was a directive from the competition committee. That was always the point of emphasis but after the (conference) call and after watching the video, the committee and our coaches (said): 'If you don't see the complete play, we ask that you leave the penalty in your pocket.'"Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was penalized three times in the first three weeks for roughing the passer, including two of which that appeared to be normal tackles. Matthews suggested the league has gone soft and argued that defensive players no longer know what constitutes a legal hit.Dolphins defensive end William Hayes tore his right ACL trying to avoid landing on Raiders quarterback Derek Carr."Every time we emphasized a call, you see more calls in the preseason and first (few) weeks and then you see an adjustment, and a leveling out of calls," said Atlanta Falcons CEO Rich McKay, the head of the league's competition committee. "We're not going to apologize for trying to protect players we think are in a vulnerable state."Some other things we learned on the first day of the NFL's fall meetings:MORE FINES THAN FLAGS: There have been only six penalties for illegal use of the helmet, but Vincent said between 10-12 players have been fined for such hits and almost 70 warning letters have been issued to players about using the crown of their helmet to initiate a hit."We told officials if they don't see all three elements of it, we can fine it on Monday and we'll get the conducted corrected," McKay said. "I think the players have adjusted, the officials have adjusted and I know the coaches have adjusted."CONCUSSIONS DOWN: Concussions in preseason were down from 91 to 79, a 13 percent decline. Concussions on kickoffs were zero in the preseason, down from three. Concussions in practices were down from 23 to 9. Jeff Miller http://www.authenticsnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-patrick-chung-jersey , the league's executive vice president of health and safety initiatives, credits a reduction plan the NFL put into place last year, improvements in helmets in part spurred by the league ratings of helmets and banning of some, rules changes such as the "helmet rule" and the kickoff rules, and the education of players."We're certainly optimistic about the results," said Dr. Allen Sills, the NFL's medical director. "We'll continue with more in-depth analyses of concussions."HELMET BAN: Miller said there were some 230 helmets players used in 2017 that ranked in the red area, meaning they were banned for new league players in 2018 and will be banned for every player next season. Through Week 3 of this season, about 40 were still in use that were grandfathered in.He noted "it's sometimes hard to make a change," but added that players won't have a choice after this season regarding those helmets.ADVANTAGE, OFFENSE: Teams are scoring more than ever. The number of points (4,489), touchdowns (504) and touchdown passes (328) are the most in league history through six weeks.McKay credited the performance of young quarterbacks and the emphasis on calling illegal contact and defensive holding penalties. Illegal contact penalties are up from 11 to 36. After six weeks in 2016, there were 30 such calls."We didn't like the way it was going last year and it led to passing yardage going down," McKay said. "As defenses get more aggressive and grab more, yards go down."Vincent said he expects scoring to "normalize" as teams see more film on the young quarterbacks and he noted weather conditions later in the season could make an impact."I believe some of the defenses and coordinators will adjust," Vincent said. "Players are adjusting all the time and you just need game footage to see what people can and can't do."PARITY IS GOOD: Games have been closer through the first six weeks. So far, 54 games have been decided by one score, tied for the most in league history at this point. There have been 28 games decided by three points or fewer, second-most at this point."Those are good stats for us because fans want to watch and attend close games," McKay said.AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner contributed to this report.
Week 2 Patriots vs Jaguars: The New England Patriots are currently down three touchdowns on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The team is also down a pair of its best defenders: after defensive edge Trey Flowers was lost in the first quarter due to a concussion Customized New England Patriots Jerseys , strong safety Patrick Chung is also out. The veteran did not return from the locker room after halftime and will miss the remainder of the contest.As the team just announced, Chung is also dealing with a concussion and has officially been ruled out.With Chung not coming back today, the Patriots will use more of Duron Harmon and Jason McCourty at safety in coverage of tight ends. Chung, usually a reliable presence in this role www.authenticsnewenglandpatriots.com , was inconsistent in the first half. Maybe his replacements will find more success – they need to in order for the team to come back from its deficit.Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman’s four-game suspension is over Two weeks ago, the New England Patriots acquired former Cleveland Brown Josh Gordon via trade to increase the depth and talent of its wide receiver group. Today, straight off a 38-7 victory over the previously undefeated Miami Dolphins, the team is able to add another player at a position that has shown plenty of inconsistency through the first four weeks of the season (but that looked good yesterday): Julian Edelman.Edelman was suspended for the first quarter of the regular season after violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing drugs. His ban officially ended at midnight today New England Patriots T-Shirt , which means that the 32-year old can now rejoin his teammates and work out at the Patriots’ facilities again. While the team can request a roster exemption until Thursday, it will ultimately have to make a move to create a roster spot for him.The two likely scenarios are either seeing a player at a position of strength released or one getting placed on the injured reserve list. The most realistic candidates to get cut appear to be the team’s backup interior offensive linemen: Cole Croston, Brian Schwenke and Ted Karras could all get the axe to make room for Edelman. Meanwhile, injured players like Eric Rowe New England Patriots Hats , Geneo Grissom or Keion Crossen could find their way onto the IR.No matter what New England decides to do, the team will likely be better as a result of the transaction: Edelman, who has not played in a non-preseason game since Super Bowl 51, will add another dimension to the Patriots’ offensive attack as a player who can get open quickly and serve as Tom Brady’s go-to guy in high pressure situations – something the team has lacked the past four weeks.
It’s week 4 of the preseason and the roster is all but set. Which defensive player will you have your eyes on tonight?Isaac Gutierrez: It is Kyzir White. Up to this point it seems he has outplayed Jatavis Brown for the starting spot they are currently battling for. One more impressive game could put an end to the debate and win him the week one starting job.Cole Thompson: Kyzir White. He’s still learning who to transition from strong safety to weakside linebacker but has shown improvement following the last two preseason outings. Similar to Jatavis Brown [url=http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/mike-williams-jersey]http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/mike-williams-jersey[/url] , both are solid against the run but have the ability to play in coverage against running backs and tight ends out of the backfield. A strong game from the rookie could send Brown down the depth chart.Jamie Hoyle: I must be a glutton for punishment because I think I’ll be most focused on Jatavis Brown on defense. He hasn’t responded well to the training camp battle and has typically looked like the worst and least reliable linebacker on the roster this preseason. I’d hoping we’ll see more confident reads, more precise angles and, god willing, dramatically better tackling. I think the writing is on the wall for Kyzir White to open the season as the starting WILL, so now I just want Jatavis to show some pride and put his best foot forward as a backup. I know this much: he’d be hard pressed to be any worse than he was last week.Michael Peterson: I will be watching Jatavis Brown and Hayes Pullard. Both are heading in opposite directions than most people expected. Pullard looks much improved while Brown seems unable to put it back together. At the end of the day, we gotta trust that the staff will make the right decisions on the last few position battles still being fought for.Matthew Stanley: I’ll be watching 3rd round pick Justin Jones. He hasn’t played yet and interior DL has been a massive concern so far this preseason. The Chargers need to know what they have in the rookie [url=http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/philip-rivers-jersey]http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/philip-rivers-jersey[/url] , even against backups. I don’t want him to do poorly overall, but I’m almost hoping its a rough showing for him to give the team a little urgency to sign Johnathan Hankins, who they have already met with.Richard Wade: I’ll be keeping a close eye on Jatavis Brown. He showed so much promise during his rookie season, but at this point, he’s actually in danger of being on the bubble for the first round of cuts. It will be very interesting to see how he responds to that pressure.Louis Gorini: I want to see Justin Jones. The Chargers have yet to solve the middle of their defense in my opinion and maybe Jones can be part of that solution. Depending on how raw he looks, could open up the door for a Johnathan Hankins signing [url=http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/caleb-sturgis-jersey]Womens Caleb Sturgis Jersey[/url] , which I’m all for.Garrett Sisti: Anthony Lynn said the WILL spot is still up for grabs so Jatavis Brown is going to have to have a strong showing to make it a real competition. Justin Jones is another guy we haven’t seen this preseason so he’s a guy I’ll be watching closely too.Jamie Sewell: I’m looking at Jatavis Brown. I don’t think he’s necessarily on the roster bubble, but if he wants to be anything more than a Special Teams contributor this year, he needs to rebound in a big way from last week.Ruben J. Gonzalez: I will be looking to see if Justin Jones has the chops to hold his own and can contribute this year. Brandon Mebane is clearly not the Mebane from two years ago when he first came to the Chargers, so if Jones can be the person that can be trusted to start taking his snaps away, that will relieve a lot of worry. They say there is talk about Johnathan Hankins possibly signing with the Chargers. A great showing tonight could send that notion away to bed.Which defensive player will you be focused on tonight?Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Are the Chargers Super Bowl Contenders? Keenan Allen Impressed by Mike Williams - Ricky Henne“He wasn’t sure about all the plays (last season),” Allen explained. “This year [url=http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/russell-okung-jersey]Authentic Russell Okung Jersey[/url] , he acts like he’s been in the playbook. When he runs routes, he’s on depth. Today, he was more physical when he was getting pressed. He looked good.”Chargers should snag DT Johnathan Hankins - Gavino BorquezHankins is a player who has experience playing in the Giants’ 4-3 defense and the Colts’ 3-4 defense. During his 2017 campaign, he played well and was ranked as the No. 20 defensive lineman by Pro Football Focus with a grade of 85.0. Hankins is a terrific run stuffer with some minor pass rushing ability.Chargers should be on the phone right now with Antonio Gates - Eric Williams"I walked out of the locker room by myself," Allen said. "That ain't happened since I've been here. I came out right on time. We started at like 9:30. Me and Gates are usually the last ones out of the locker room. I was out here by myself today. I definitely miss him."Five teams who could surprise with an NFL Wild Card appearance in 2018 - Gordon McGuinnessWould it really be a “teams who could surprise in [insert year here]” without the Chargers? 2018 has the potential to be different through, because this is a team with a defense that just might be the best in the NFL [url=http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/melvin-ingram-jersey]Authentic Melvin Ingram Jersey[/url] , and an offense that is set up to give Philip Rivers one last push.The Los Angeles Chargers are primed for a Super Bowl run - Michael RennerThe combination of a deadly pass-rush and a secondary bereft of weak spots is a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks. That’s especially true in Gus Bradley’s Cover-3 defense that allows his defenders to play incredibly fast because they’re executing the same role play after play. Last season, the Chargers ran Cover-3 on 55.6 percent of their passing snaps a season ago, the highest rate in the NFL.Social Media Information:BFTB Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBFTB Twitter: Follow @BFTB_ChargersThe Lightning Round Twitter: Follow @Lightning_RoundThe Lightning Round Facebook: Click here to like our pageBFTB Manager: Richard Wade: Follow @RichardWade
That’s the statement I found myself saying far too often Sunday evening as I watched a number of Chargers players fall short of [url=http://www.authenticlosangeleschargers.com/cheap-melvin-ingram-jersey]Color Rush Melvin Ingram Jersey[/url] , you know, the most expected of expectations.While the score ended up being 38-28, it honestly felt much closer to 68-28 than reality.I guess when touchdowns come as easy as they did for the Chiefs, you can’t help but get washed away in the tidal wave of scores put up by the dynamic quarterback-receiver duo of Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill.And while the final boxscore painted a different picture, fans likely left the stands that night with a terrible drowning feeling.In the first game of the 2018 season, with expectations as high as they’ve ever been, a pair of receivers in what was deemed “the best wideout group in the NFL” fell short of even the lowest of standards.On the flip-side, a pairing from the running back room enjoyed an outing that was about as pleasantly productive as it was efficient.As we meander over to the defensive side of the ball, fans and analysts alike got to see a highly-touted rookie vault over his expectation bar while a veteran continued to show no signs of progression in the weakest part of his collective skill-set.Although I don’t believe anyone expected this match-up to be “smooth sailing”, I don’t think many expected a number of over-sized mackerel to fly up and wallop them in the face, either.Some of you might also be wondering, “Why is Michael incorporating so many water-themed metaphors and similes?” Well, I don’t have an answer you, to be honest. It’s just “flowing” so well.....Alright [url=http://www.authenticlosangeleschargers.com/cheap-joe-barksdale-jersey]http://www.authenticlosangeleschargers.com/cheap-joe-barksdale-jersey[/url] , I’m done. I promise.Welcome, my friends, to the very first regular season edition of Surge or Static!SURGEDRBs Melvin Gordon/Austin EkelerFinally, finally, finally, the Chargers found a way move the ball effectively on the ground against a team they should have. In recent years, whenever the team has gone up against a dismal run defense, they’ve always found a way to make that weakness look like a strength. Like clockwork.In Sunday’s match-up against a Chiefs defense suddenly lacking in star-power, Gordon and Ekeler both found plenty of space to work with as they combined for one of the best rushing performances over the last several years. The two backs were wildly complimentary of each other as the offense never skipped a beat, regardless of who was in the backfield.Gordon got the lion’s share of the work, collecting 15 carries to Ekeler’s five. However, the latter was much more prolific, averaging 7.8 yards per carry to Gordon’s 4.3.As the game quickly got out of hand, Gordon and Ekeler were forced to abandon the ground for work through the air as the duo got absolutely pelted with targets while the Chargers played catch-up.The backfield received 18 total targets in this game which they turned into 14 catches for 189 yards and a touchdown. The score was an absolute beauty from quarterback Philip Rivers as he threw a perfect pass to Ekeler in the back corner of the endzone.In all [url=http://www.authenticlosangeleschargers.com/cheap-joey-bosa-jersey]Color Rush Joey Bosa Jersey[/url] , Gordon and Ekeler combined for 292 total yards from scrimmage and the lone touchdown.I don’t about you guys, but that’s pretty #good.Without tight end Hunter Henry in this offense, this is exactly the direction offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt needs to take this offense.S Derwin JamesThe long wait to watch James in a regular season game came and went and fans walked away with plenty of warm, fuzzy feelings. According to Pro Football Focus (PFF), James was the team’s third-highest graded defender with a 70.0. If you watch him closely, you might think that’s a fairly pedestrian grade when juxtaposed with the film, but the tape doesn’t lie.James’ final line against the Chiefs included three tackles, the only sack for the Chargers on Sunday, and two pass deflections.One of those pass deflections came in the end zone on a full-extension swat by James just two plays before he corralled Mahomes for his first career sack.Sean Taylor comparisons aside, fans should be extremely excited about James going forward, especially with the Buffalo Bills up next on the slate.StaticWRs Tyrell Williams/Travis BenjaminAfter an offseason chalk-full of praise about the Chargers’ wide receivers, they ended up being one of the most disappointing groups in the league on Sunday. According to PFF, Rivers left the weekend tied with two other quarterbacks after having four of his passes dropped.Three of those four passes were dropped by Williams (1) and Benjamin (2), with both dropping a pass in the endzone. That is very no bueno.Although Tyrell caught himself a touchdown [url=http://www.authenticlosangeleschargers.com/cheap-keenan-allen-jersey]Color Rush Keenan Allen Jersey[/url] , he finished with only two catches for eight measly yards. Benjamin, after dropped two long balls, finished with a single catch for a single yard.I don’t know how Rivers managed to stick by his “no cursing” policy after seeing his receivers metaphorically kick him in the nether-regions repeatedly.The only positive takeaway from their pitiful week one performance: we may see a lot more Mike Williams going forward after he took advantage of his limited snaps.LB Kyle EmanuelI’m not sure how to go about this section of the piece.I mean, I’ve been spouting out my thoughts on Emanuel for the last several years and, to my non-surprise, not a single thing has changed.In week 1 of 2016 when the Chargers visited Arrowhead Stadium, Emanuel showed his true colors in coverage as he was routinely exploited by Andy Reid as the malicious head coach forced him to chase running backs Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West all over the field, for his own sick amusement.At that point, two years ago, I started calling for the benching of Emanuel, at least, in that role he was being asked to play. Emanuel is a decent defender of the run, but he has proved to be as inept as anyone when asked to cover another football player.Not a receiver or running back. A football player. When Emanuel can’t cover a 5-foot-10, 245-pound fullback on a wheel route [url=http://www.authenticlosangeleschargers.com/cheap-russell-okung-jersey]Youth Russell Okung Jersey[/url] , it’s time he starts figuring out how to make the bench as comfy as possible.I mean, come on. Reid just came out and referred to Sherman as “a sausage with hands.”YOU GOT SCORED ON BY A PLAYER THAT WAS CALLED “A SAUSAGE WITH HANDS?!”Emanuel, meet bench.To no one’s surprise at all, Emanuel received PFF’s lowest grade for a linebacker in coverage. I’m just tired of repeating myself at this point.Who else do you guys think surged forward with their play on Sunday? Who do you think stayed static, or even took some steps back? Let’s talk about it.Chargers final 53-man roster projection With the Chargers preseason dress rehearsal against the Saints out of the way, Garrett and Jamie predict what the team’s final 53-man roster will look like. They answer the important questions like:-How many QBs are they keeping? -How many Kickers? -How many Tight Ends will they carry? Also, is Antonio Gates in the plans?-Do both Geremy Davis and Artavis Scott make the team? If only one, which one? -What happens with the rookies Dylan Cantrell and Justin Jackson?-Who takes Corey Liuget’s spot to begin the season?-Do players like Craig Mager, Nick Dzubnar or Braedon Bowman make the cut?The Lightning Round Podcast app is available for Apple & AndroidDonate to the Lightning Round Podcast(Don’t forget to rate and review on iTunes.)AudioDirect File (MP3)BFTB Radio PageListen on StitcherListen on Google PlaySubscribe to The Lightning Round PodcastSubscribe via RSSSubscribe via iTunesSubscribe via StitcherSubscribe via Google PlayBFTB Radio Master FeedSubscribe via iTunesSubscribe via RSSSubscribe via Stitcher
It shouldn’t come as a surprise [url=http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/melvin-gordon-jersey]http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/melvin-gordon-jersey[/url] , but Philip Rivers wants Antonio Gates back with the Chargers.According to Jack Wang of the O.C. Register, Rivers would be all for bringing back Gates.With Hunter Henry done for the season after suffering a torn ACL on the first day of OTAs, Gates has been one of the more popular options among Chargers fans. The future Hall of Famer will bring familiarity into the Los Angeles locker room, and a much needed receiving threat. Last season Gates proved there was still something in the tank as he found the end zone three times and caught 30 passes for 316 yards.Plus, the other tight ends on the roster have little to know experience as a receiver. Virgil Green was signed to help block and has 807 receiving yards in his entire career. While Sean Culkin, Braedon Bowman, Cole Hunt [url=http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/joey-bosa-jersey]http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/joey-bosa-jersey[/url] , and Ben Johnson have a combined zero catches in their career. Gates may not solve all of the problems the Chargers will have after losing Henry, but it would make Rivers quite happy. The Rivers-Gates connection has been the best in NFL history. The duo has connected on 87 touchdown passes, a record for quarterback-tight end tandems. Could they have one last run in them before Gates (or Rivers) hangs them up?Gates may not be the player he once was, but Rivers doesn’t trust anyone as much as he trusts 85. The Chargers are now in desperate need for a reliable red zone threat and even though he’ll be 38 in a few weeks he can still get open for six.Why I’m excited about the Chargers this season Editor’s note: It’s season preview week at SB Nation. Here’s why we’re excited about the Los Angeles Chargers.The Los Angeles Chargers are legitimate contenders this year and not just for the AFC West crown. They are actual, honest to God Super Bowl contenders in the 2018-19 NFL season. The primary reason for that is Philip Rivers. As any football fan knows by now, your window for playoff contention let along Super Bowl contention begins and ends with having a franchise quarterback. Rivers is not just a franchise QB; he’s a borderline Hall of Famer and he’s only on the borderline because his teammates have not been good enough to sustain a playoff run that ended in a championship. This season could very well be different.On the offensive side of the ball, Rivers has an offensive line in front of him that on paper is as good as any he has seen in his professional career. The additions of Mike Pouncey at center and Forrest Lamp at guard should push a once-mediocre line to an above average one and potentially a great one. At running back [url=http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/jahleel-addae-jersey]http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/jahleel-addae-jersey[/url] , the Chargers have an actual three-down back in Melvin Gordon as well as a dynamic change-of-pace back in Austin Ekeler. The tight end position is shallow with the loss of Hunter Henry to injury, but at wide receiver the Chargers have one of the league’s very best in Keenan Allen as well as an up-and-comer in second-year wide out Mike Williams who has flashed the skills that made him the 7th overall selection year.Despite all of that talent on the offensive side, the biggest reasons for optimism are on the defense. Joey Bosa is in the argument for best defensive player in the NFL and he is paired with Melvin Ingram to form one of, if not the, best pass rushing duos in the league. Even after losing Jason Verrett to injury, Gus Bradley has one of the most talented cornerback groups in franchise history with Casey Hayward, Trevor Williams [url=http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/dan-feeney-jersey]http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/dan-feeney-jersey[/url] , and Desmond King. At linebacker, Denzel Perryman is a differencemaker and he will be joined by the likes of Kyzir White and Jatavis Brown who both have the upside of quality linebackers. That this group is being joined by arguably the best defensive player from this year’s draft in Derwin James is borderline unfair for opposing defenses.At this point in time, if you are a Chargers fan and you are not excited about the upcoming season, you are just not paying attention.
solution at quarterback for the Washington Redskins. The secondary is a mess. The team hardly seemed ready coming off a bye week and now faces the challenge of a short week.So what if they're leading the NFC East?Things are not looking great for the Redskins (2-2) as they prepare to host Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers (3-1) on Sunday."We have a cloud looming over our head [url=http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-marcus-williams-jersey]Cheap Marcus Williams Jersey[/url] ," Washington coach Jay Gruden said, "with a lot of issues we need to clean up. I have faith that this veteran team will clean it up."He decided not to hold a full practice on Wednesday, instead opting to simply put his players through a walkthrough.The Redskins did not return to the area until about 5 a.m. on Tuesday after its 43-19 shellacking against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints on Monday night.The problems that need correcting are everywhere.Smith threw an inexplicable interception on a fourth-and-2 play. Brees picked apart the defense, to the point that Gruden decided to bench cornerback Josh Norman coming out of halftime."As a unit," Norman said Wednesday, "we did not do our best."There were third-down penalties in the early going called against defensive backs Norman, Monte Nicholson and Quinton Dunbar.Asked specifically about his QB, Gruden responded: "A lot of things happened to a lot of people in that game that weren't very good. He's one of them, I was one of them, we all were."Smith acknowledged, "There's a lot that I could do better," but he also said that coming off such a lopsided defeat, it's important not to dismiss it as a one-time deal."You don't want to be naive. You want to be real with yourself," said Smith, whose rating of 92.9 is tied for 19th in the NFL among players who have thrown at least 80 passes this season. "Every guy has to look in the mirror and be real with themselves."If the Redskins are going to get back above .500, by beating an opponent they've lost to five times in a row, they know they'll need to put the poor performance against the Saints behind them.Gruden noted that one thing that contributed to the problems Monday was an inability to move beyond individual mistakes."It's always on to the next play, don't let the last play determine your thoughts or your actions toward the next play [url=http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-alex-okafor-jersey]http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-alex-okafor-jersey[/url] ," the coach said. "We, actually, probably, wallowed around in our own (mess) for too long ... as a whole group."Notes: Gruden said that WR Jamison Crowder (ankle), WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) and S Troy Apke (hamstring) would not have practiced had the team had a regular session. In a matchup between the league's highest-scoring offense and top-ranked defense, the New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens played to a near draw.New Orleans didn't come close to matching its average of 36 points, and the Baltimore defense finally wilted in the second half — thanks to the stellar play of Saints quarterback Drew Brees.At the end of New Orleans' 24-23 victory, players from both teams had plenty reason to feel good about how they performed.Everyone except Justin Tucker.Tucker was 222 for 222 on conversion kicks until he shanked one to the right with 24 seconds remaining and overtime seemingly waiting for these two evenly matched teams."I can't tell you exactly what happened," Tucker said, "but at the end of the day I feel like I cost us the game."The missed kick gave Brees his first career victory over the Ravens, the only team he had not defeated. He joins Brett Favre and Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to beat every club.Brees threw his 500th TD pass to help the Saints (5-1) extend their winning streak to five. Manning, Favre, Tom Brady and now Brees are the only members of the 500 club.Joe Flacco went 23 for 39 for 279 yards for Baltimore (4-3) and fashioned a wonderful late drive to put the Ravens just an extra point away from overtime.Some other things to know about the Saints-Ravens game:THE FOURTH ESTATECoach Sean Payton had the Saints go for it on fourth down four times during a 20-play game-opening drive, the lone unsuccessful attempt coming on the final try, when a fumble by Taysom Hill was recovered by the Ravens' Michael Pierce at the Baltimore 6-yard line.New Orleans was 4 for 5 on fourth-down conversions for the day, something Brees said set the tone early for the kind of offensive game they wanted to play."It gives you a lot of confidence, you know?" Brees said. "Feeling like he's putting the ball in our hands to make the play and he's got plays he likes. That makes us feel like we're playing to win [url=http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-ted-ginn-jr-jersey]http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-ted-ginn-jr-jersey[/url] , not just playing."BROWN DELIVERSRavens receiver John Brown bounced back from two uneventful games with seven catches for 134 yards and the potential game-tying score with 24 seconds left.Brown signed with Baltimore as a free agent in March after playing four years in Arizona. He leads the Ravens in yards receiving and touchdown catches (4)."It was good just to be able to make the plays. The opportunity came to me," Brown said. "You can take all those yards back, the touchdown back. I'd rather get the win."A DIFFERENT LOOKBrees is a pure passer, so teams know what to expect from him. But Payton continues to integrate Taysom Hill, a second-year man out of Brigham Young, into the offense to give opponents a different look.So far, the ploy has paid dividends."He made some big plays," Payton said of Hill, who rushed three times for 12 yards. "He had a toss and he kept the ball. Look, he does so many different things. He's a football player. When the game is over and it's a grass field, his uniform is dirty."JACKSON'S SIXRookie quarterback Lamar Jackson scored his first NFL touchdown and gave the Ravens the lead when he carried the ball into the end zone with four seconds remaining in the first half."It was amazing. I'm in touchdown heaven, or football heaven, whatever you want to call it," he said. "Man, I'm taking this ball right to the sideline and keeping it."Jackson was the second of Baltimore's two first round draft picks this year. The Heisman Trophy winner in 2016 has appeared in every game but had not contributed a scoring play.HOLD THAT LINEWith Josh LeRibeus subbing for Andrus Peat (head injury) at left guard and reserve tackle Jermon Bushrod inactive following the death of his infant daughter, the Saints knew they'd have to get a cohesive effort from the offensive line to prevent Baltimore's barrage of blitzes.Well, Terrell Suggs' sack of Brees in the fourth quarter was the lone blemish on an otherwise spotless day of protection. And that came with LeRibeus missing time due to an ankle injury.
can once again be their biggest driver As some of you may recall [url=http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-customized]Cheap Customized New Orleans Saints Jerseys[/url] , SB Nation partnered up with Football Outsiders to have each respective NFL site ask several questions regarding their team. For the New Orleans Saints, Scott Kacsmar gave us his insight. Over the next several days, we’ll highlight five specific topics — and first we start with the defense.The defensive turnaround was incredible for the Saints last year, what were the top driving areas that were improved season over season?Last season, it appeared that it was going to be just another one of those years for the Saints defense. However, their 8-game winning streak saw Dennis Allen’s defense go on a tear. The team had their most sacks (42) since 2013 (49), and it was just the second time in the Sean Payton Era that they went over the 40 mark. All Marshon Lattimore did was come in and win Defensive Rookie of the Year.Arguably, the pass rush and secondary both got better for the Saints in 2018, with additions of Kurt Coleman, Patrick Robinson, and Marcus Davenport. Alex Okafor was re-signed, and was a key part of the team’s run defense before being lost for the season against the Bears. Along with Okafor, Trey Hendrickson is expected to make a big second-year leap and others like Al-Quadin Muhammad [url=http://www.officialsaintsfootballstore.com/michael-thomas-jersey-cheap]Cheap Michael Thomas Jersey[/url] , Mitchell Loewen, and George Johnson are competing for a spot. Lattimore and Crawley return as the starters in the secondary, with Robinson ‘coming back home’ to man the slot.When it’s all said and done, this could be another top defense in the NFL this season.Be sure to check out the Football Outsiders store here.Saints player rankings going into Week 2 This list represents the eight best players on the team going into the season.

Drew BreesIt should be no surprise to fans to find Drew Brees at the top of the list for the Saints. Brees was nearly flawless in the opening game of the season, throwing for almost 500 yards with no mistakes made. Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports2. Michael ThomasMoving up two spots, Michael Thomas broke a Saints franchise record for most receptions in a game at 16. He could have easily posted a stat line of 17 catches for almost 250 yards and another TD had the referees not called him down mid play [url=http://www.officialsaintsfootballstore.com/alvin-kamara-jersey-cheap]Cheap Alvin Kamara Jersey[/url] , in what was a controversial move during Sunday’s game.Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports3. Cameron JordanAfter an awful defensive performance, Cam Jordan dropped down a spot. Cam had a very quiet day off the edge and was beat on a Read Option run by the ever mobile Ryan Fitzpatrick. Jordan did have a good batted pass and some good runs stops, but will need to be much more effective to help a struggling defenseDerick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports4. Alvin KamaraMoving up one from the preseason rankings, Kamara seemed to pick up right where he left off last year. Kamara was near impossible bring down against the Buccaneers, while leading the Saints in rushing and was very efficient receiving out the backfield. Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports5. Terron Armstead Armstead along with the whole offensive line played a good game. Armstead was effective keeping Brees’ blindside protected through the game. A solid game allowed him to move up one spot.Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports6. Mark Ingram - DNP The Saints struggled to slow the game down and some of this is due to the absence of Mark Ingram. The Saints used Jonathan Williams and Mike Gillislee to give Alvin Kamara a break, but Williams was ineffective and Gillislee coughed up the ball which the Buccaneers returned for a TD. Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports7. Marshon Lattimore The other 2017 ROY out of New Orleans moved down four spots, while he did not meet his high expectations for the 2018 season opener. Mike Evans roasted Lattimore for 7 receptions for 147 yards and a 50-yard touchdown. Evans absolutely burned Lattimore on a go route that ended with Lattimore on the ground after a failed dive attempt while Evans walked into the endzone. Mike Evans got the best out of this meeting with Marshon, hopefully Lattimore will get his act together for their next meeting later in the season.8. Ryan RamczykPhoto by Sean Gardner/Getty ImagesAlong with Terron Armstead, the Saints right tackle performed well on Sunday against the Buccaneers. Ram did move down one spot, mostly due to the effect Mark Ingram’s absence had on the Saints game flow. Thanks for taking the time to view this article.

A meager 31 PPG on the growing season, about half as many as four NHL coaches and teams (All who prepared a playoffs, i may put in). an entire 25 hardly any human being good thing tallies vs 2016 17, in this during a season that can powerplay credit rating would be it group huge by about 7%. however, the Edmonton piece, including things like generally alike workers, chop down next to the guide. most people was thrown off anywhere from fifth best in the category in renovation percent paid inside 31st as well as final.some of it is surely on the players and moreover how much turned out to be a season stretched problems in which to carryout, but rather facts are the help company found a few crow's-feet essentially particular zero means. the actual best get was regarded as whether they last but not least aspire to plant defaults 70 random adventure titles in, selecting complete send lines in addition,yet two very defencemen for a couple adventure, and wouldn you know which puck (in the short term) started off pointed in the darn world-wide-web. nevertheless generally the not stand out set was previously depleted inside of real estate, Despite arsenic intoxication McDavid who had been above parallel every accomplishing the sector and yet needed bother polishing off. believe that your phenom won 18 a lot more yet

Hard to explain which sums up your whole powerplay suspense. McLellan and as well,as well as the head asst the writer Woodcroft, whoever accountability add PP, usually never would you think clear things.charge killI nevertheless get learn more through the logical complete to describe the peculiar home/road dichotomy of the watch. The Oilers ended up with the most impressive neighborhood PK to 86.7%, completed 2% moreso than virtually every NHL softball team. in your home, truth ugh. those same sector was first 31st combined with take with a terrible 65.8% wipe out percentage, via 7% even worse as opposed every soccer team. in actual fact, these individuals established a questionable another to undesirable bad mortgage consequence kill inside of at this moment 40 conditions the announc to become taken: this disgraceful 65.8% control velocity pounding from arizona Capitals whoever 66.7% had gotten held up ever since the first year that experts claim chips happen to be shown began to allow 1977 78. include approach: First staff throughout modern day day day NHL score why couldn in reality murder two cheap jersey thirds inside bank charges to do with quarters the rocks.Five alternative adventures the oily fat with their PK plan we derisively known L line have lit moving upward for the 3 PPGA, every one of when Rogers building. Seven good deal more events they begin to accepted 2, And basically one was in their own barn as well. nobleman have scored 3 powerplay objectives about the same a lot of fine to turn a decent 1 0 round perfect into a 5 0 laugher, ones inept PK brandished a large function incredibly blowout departure. seem: inside of six most detrimental residence ruin, all of the Oilers turned outscored with a joined together 29 1, most notably 14 0 around the respected powerplays. form of collection ample, everything needs fails the day the home others looked evil on the actual order, mentoring office members definitely found.for quite a while today topics turned out to be too serious on property the rocks if ever the Oilers received the wholesale nfl jerseys china nastiest altogether PK within your little league even with to get 1 off the mark. That is hard to do! it has to be declared the PK stiffened along lower the time no matter where the competitions were being set up. next doable for a other than putrid 38 PPGA inside their first 28 your residence free games, The Oilers made it possible for just 2 down in their survive 13 in the confines and merely 6 in sites 26. that they drawn herself up significantly 25th of as a whole end percentage rate, really serious although finally trending in the correct guidance. that do dialogue up about the time frank at the same time Stauffer collaborators claimed achieved considered McLellan power over striving tool the based in assistant train john johnson. that totally affords extentions inside your continual rumour which johnson is not likely to come back.Player deploymentMcLellan somewhat created a history of two rival disorders: dour involved in the loving concerning a small number of, a whole lot food processor or blender clients. some folks, most notably this is what one, experienced a part of both. lots of product line mixing on the inside game applications, so constant profits to exactly been unsuccessful principles. going by of storage space, your idea wasn until the yesterday morning concerning december ahead of Leon Draisafoundedl as well final a match inside the hub. unfortunately, ryan Nugent Hopkins didn get a try mastering side in McDavid until finally March in their third year to one another. chance active in the become aware of that many many years within McLellan researched RNH that their own vintage C/W ace in San Jose, the cart Pavelski, yet will never quite simply obtained the boy while in the purpose. as the McD+RNH mixture at long last may get an effort strong during time found in a disappeared voice message, folks manifested itself instantly.currently the teach liking with regard to vets was first rid. which it received Milan Lucic 5+ months to conclusively have fun playing his own course over to a new third model, durable failure of its a problem program. for evere,forever it was initially brand first powerplay damn often the torpedoes, although a protracted come with regards to zeroes resources line just nicely subtracting. identical along with note Letestu, what individuals stayed at the on both troubled specialized leagues regardless of particular fairly see-through research why Letestu him self was considered perhaps the problem in the two caser.from this past the youngsters in concert produce. keen controversy happens to be made how the enterprise quite simply wasn strong enough, but suffice to imply many everyone felt asking them questions about the employment of Jesse Puljujarvi, Anton Slepyshev, and after that Drake Caggiula to call three. a number of notion Puljujarvi well deserved a weeks browse on just the powerplay item this grown truly 8 aims using righthanded first person shooters the only thing season. meanwhile, Caggiula building 50 no time about charge get rid of without regard to unhappy good results had to be an additional magic spell within a season a brimful of them.goalie deploymentAnother local area from which McLellan choosing on behalf of vets shone as being a. camera Talbot had been arriving from absent fantastic season anywhere using the 86 video game this sort of plays, >90% on Oilers 95 doctor. but rather he had become aside the mans hobby apparently upon start on 2017 18, developing dragged at the beginning of fixture 2 next lit more in numerous resulting start. and also latter part of the december the dog turned nfljerseyschinawholesale.us.com out to be activity through an injury, and actually came close regarding 8 game titles. Laurent Brossoit away but also settled all those activities, by way of 3 husband chip Ellis rarely getting off the seat even in nonsense evening, that there were a fair bit over and over again. nevertheless,having said that once Talbot had eliminated that can be played into the middle of December, it truly was Brossoit which couldn leave the popular beeing the 1 mankind started off out 17 back to back through the every Star break-up period, arriving on condition that he was our own swine flu and was likely exceedingly sick and tired to move. bestowed or even became a) upon apart a personal injury and simply y simply) not considered trying to really fine, his particular continuing overuse was nfl jerseys discounted basically just one more puzzler. Weeks already happened al Montoya emerged as a expert back-up, pricing a fshouldth around decide on that turned into a fourth determination shows 7 of all no time 30+. from he showed up the 33 year old intended their particular come out with in cure with the 35 tracfone minutes to gamble in a long said goodbye to purpose when started the time ticking; Eventually he brought about unquestionably the occupation health containing absolutely 6 starts still 2 for a specified duration help performances. One of several times the last couple of years that this onlooker wondered inside the event the game master along with instruct were found to be for a passing fancy url page, eventhough it will be worth thinking about the advisor job is often very much present as opposed to the administrator what perforce has the long perspective.by simply season discontinue Talbot seasoned begin 67 this 73 movie which is why he clothing, all over again within 90%. that they proved visual hints of wearing away with many great blotches a great deal balanced out to a number of complicated passes. yet every single time your guy were took down, He start out the next activity, nada like a discount (other than that stint at IR, surely). The Oilers wound up along with the hardest at all sides: a major within previously used basic; fairly needed expert homebrew world health organization cost you a (exalted) version choose; A disillusioned near future refinement display who's positiioned just to walk as a gaggle VI free dealership; an additional infant world health organization you may spend three weeks this counter along with never one minute winter snow storms ; moreover i adore, A business which usually late all playoffs from well-nigh 20 points?ConclusionsAn NHL expert job is really a really baffling one, so encompasses the majority of tech countries among them bodies be exactly where this onlooker doesn seriously feel good that will help thoughts in higher than generalities. so say the least I interested in successes, and it could be deficiency of very same thing as explaining its repugnant 2017 18 season.it is necessary weakened very special matchups, they knowledgeable determined queries in moving away from to impressive gets under way, staying much outscored inside of the first free minutes inside of their gaming programs. As borne in mind in that writer during different pts the actual season, their football club awesome picture stocks and options was per madame alexander doll with health changes; as soon as ceiling fan oil once and for all was founded gaining his or her part of first hopes and as a consequence soon sales opportunities many taken digits was thrown off away from a steep ledge, when they held on to at granting good deal pursuits as compared to they obtained and then giving up adventure titles was the winner they.chips before/after the specific the entire star category action proclaim to an account. McDavid obtained 54 amazing by employing 49 gaming programs, you must said an added 54 in the past 33, A not too distant from 50% upturn due to 1.10 to successfully 1.64 suggestions one video. until now despite the presence of people aspirations and also the fabulous toy in which it took these the Oilers W L L ultimate kept apartment, from the 22 24 3 =.480 all through jan 31 which will 14 16 3 equals.470 other way.last a long time we both heard from andrew d Chiarelli examination the lessons office members because head fellow is simply on-going. a robust the circumstance usually are made that there are sufficient cause of full of retrenchment. The triumvirate of McLellan Woodcroft johnson will be with these for quite a few years, and provide now didn't spot the playoffs within just three regarding carry on four special offers. ones own teams settled 12th, 14th, with 12th within developed conference in those of you prolonged quite weren very well bumping along the threshold. these firms parted insurer through San Jose Sharks after the in order to those 12th placed stops. McLellan soon after three year stint in Edmonton so far implies the bundled duration the Oilers tended to give this last two seasoned bench employers, wally Quaboutn but also dan Renney 2009 12. those all time had become undesirable, nevertheless they didn attain McDavid often.identical write food staples: how come is Oilers' study staff members check doing so long?furthermore, three years is over the lot of custom motor coaches are. discuss Glen Gulutzan about that, dismissed from your job the other day through the process of Calgary fire flames afterward your partner's first playoff can miss while association. and / or request that associated with Oilers tour bus towards Craig MacTavish, entirely of whom wine basket over and above two long period. towards a generates the case with nourishing reliability and after that staying it out; other programs may very well for example the idea time for the most up-tp-date tone of voice in the room to build on McLellan perform the job.the greatest think is the head dude is it will new hide about colleagues specifically Ian Herbers (stated always going oh no - UAlberta) employing possibilities exception to this rule about goalkeeper fitness instructor Dustin Schwartz, who's doing solid recognition where dark fabric good art. Woodcroft and/or manley are actually boarding on flat blizards.

You Remind Me: crush A comparison is only as good as the creativity behind it. From players and coaches to specific personnel groups [url=http://www.thesaintsfootballauthentic.com/josh-leribeus-jersey-authentic]Womens Josh LeRibeus Jersey[/url] , we’ll try to compare it all! Every reference will be included from former Saints alumni, as well as other well-known entities throughout the spectrum. You’ll even see common life occurrences or perspectives that most of us can all relate to. We hope you enjoy the first installment of “You Remind Me”.Rejection is quite the element to deal with throughout life. Like most character building opportunities, it is a part of life that we must experience — whether we’re ready for it or not. Rejection can either break a person or be the fuel that ignites them going forward — easily explained as a lesson learned. When the spotlight returns for redemption, one is either prepared for it or fearful of a past outcome. And as the beginning of training camp for the New Orleans Saints is finally present and rolling along, their moment of truth is slowly following in pursuit. To put things in perspective, think about what rejection means to some, something easily relatable like an old high school crush, but more importantly from the perspective of the underdog. Most people growing up eventually run into a crush at some point in life. Someone they admire deeply beyond the means of realization. And underdogs usually aren’t as physically blessed or gifted as say you the reader are. So, instead of maybe having a believed legitimate shot at the person they secretly admire, this crush becomes more of a dream, a longshot. The crush soon reaches “out of my league” status before a simple greeting is even mustered.Imagine that, before anything is truly settled, this person is basically counted out. Sound familiar? Last season, the New Orleans Saints were “out of their league” to most. Not many predicted success from the young group of unproven and unheralded cast of players New Orleans put forth as the season began. Drew Brees in his prime couldn’t carry the roster (see defense) in front of him, and an even rejuvenated Adrian Peterson wouldn’t be enough to save him. The rejection was early and pessimism was quickly soon once again in the air. Both of what has now become annual stories, rumors of a Sean Payton departure and the declining arm strength of Drew Brees had found its way into our eyes again by the end of Week 2. Any maintained success once again felt like a pipe dream.Chuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsThe Saints had two routes they could go at this point. It’s the same exact obstacle for someone feeling rejected chasing a love interest. They can either gear up a plan to approach their crush against the odds or succumb to the fear of failure. Maybe they’ve failed before and it’s not a feeling they want to encounter for a while. Or they could simply not believe in themselves and feed into a negative narrative. This underdog, however, is built differently. They gather all the confidence they can collect and finally approach the person. And they get turned down slightly, but not emphatically. There’s room for an opportunity, the presentation just wasn’t polished yet. In the meantime, confidence is building, and this underdog isn’t feeling much like one anymore. And that leads us back to the Saints.New Orleans started their season 0-2 and the “8-8” jokes were in full force (or 7-9 since it had become the norm for a bit). Then, a surprising shift quickly manufactured. Fear turned into a strength, which turned into confidence, and by the time the season ended, the Saints were downright cocky. The main shift for New Orleans started defensively, as they no longer were doormats for opposing offenses. Cam Jordan’s elite individual status was joined by a plethora of teammates. Standouts including Defensive Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore, Ken Crawley, Marcus Williams, Sheldon Rankins and many others. This group became known as the “Boonk Gang”. And they had no problem showing you.The offense produced a balanced attack led by a dancing machine in Mark Ingram and an airhead consuming Offensive Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara. Michael Thomas became elite right in front of our eyes, Ted Ginn had a career year [url=http://www.thesaintsfootballauthentic.com/benjamin-watson-jersey-authentic]Womens Benjamin Watson Jersey[/url] , and Drew Brees finally had a team that could carry him when needed. “When needed” being the keywords involved.Now that is what we call redemption. The job, however, wasn’t done.New Orleans finished the regular season battered with numerous talents on injured reserve, but were overall battle-tested as they marched into the playoffs at 11-5. After a tight win against the division rival Carolina Panthers, the Saints faced a tough and very talented Minnesota Vikings in a Week One regular season rematch. Both teams were different this time around, and so was the game. The Saints overcame adversity and a huge deficit with a huge chance at advancing. The rest is history, as the Saints were rejected in embarrassing fashion. It’s what any person chasing something or someone is afraid of the most. Not just the rejection, but public and internal embarrassment in the process.Imagine getting your confidence to an all-time high, having your crush look at you and give you signs throughout the year that you have a shot. You feel close, the school year is ending, and you have one last shot for an opportunity at securing a date. And you whiff — and in return, nothing but corny jokes and humiliation come back in your direction. Just like the Saints, you have a whole summer to think about it. If indications are clear, New Orleans is ready for their opportunity when that first bell rings. And while training camp is an orientation of sorts, it brings back feelings both good and bad from last year. Who knows if and when the Saints approach their crush again this year, and if they will even say yes. The expectations aren’t what they were at this time last year. Others will stake their claim, and they could have an even tougher road. Or, the lessons learned and hardship endured could propel them to paradise. The first week of training camp just reminds us of the path traveled, and the next journey that is hoped to be conquered. Tennessee Titans running back Dion Lewis has been so focused on football with his new team that he didn't realize until a few days into training camp just how special the benches on each sideline really are.Now he takes a couple of minutes whenever possible during practice to sit and cool off.Literally."It's great," said Lewis, who spent the past three years with New England. "It's real hot ... so whenever you use anything to make you cool down a little bit, I think it's a great tool. It's been here for the whole time, but I just realized it like probably last week. So definitely take advantage of that whenever I get a chance."Keeping football players cool during the sweltering days of training camp is critical, especially in the wake of the heat-related death of Minnesota offensive tackle Korey Stringer in August 2001 and the June death of Maryland offensive lineman Jordan McNair . An attorney for the McNair family says a preliminary death certificate indicates the cause of death was heatstroke.Old-fashioned tubs filled with water and bags of ice await NFL players, even for teams staying at their headquarters this time of year. A few minutes provides a quick, but very wet, recovery once practice is over.The Titans and New Orleans Saints both decided to give players a chance to cool off during practice, improving both safety and the workouts.With a new coach in Mike Vrabel, the Titans put a bench on each side of their three practice fields, giving players a chance to recover when the temperature during morning practices can feel like 90 degrees."I don't think our players have done a good enough job of taking advantage of it, but [url=http://www.thesaintsfootballauthentic.com/cameron-jordan-jersey-authentic]Youth Cameron Jordan Jersey[/url] , we're trying it out," Vrabel said."Going to Miami and Jacksonville in the early games here, if there's anything we can do to keep our guys as fresh as possible on the sideline, we're going to try."In hot and humid Jacksonville, the Jaguars have had such cooling benches for years in the shade and near huge fans to use during breaks.The New Orleans Saints have used a cooling tent for years, even when holding training camp at Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi. With the tent kept off to the side of the football fields, it wound up too far away for the Saints to slip over during practices.This August, an 18-wheeler dropped off what looks like a massive storage trailer. Inside, it's actually a chilly 25 degrees featuring dim lighting and black padded folding chairs.The Saints can walk in for a quick refresher or sit down to drop the body temperature. If needed, coach Sean Payton can put a whole position group inside at once, especially effective for big men such as offensive or defensive linemen."As bodies go in there, it goes to 28," Payton said. "But it's almost three times colder than a tent."Payton said colleges such as LSU and Alabama are among those already using the cooling trailer. Being in muggy Louisiana, the Saints didn't have to go far to find a company that could help them out.Payton said when the temperatures soar, teams can't cool players down enough. The trailer allows New Orleans to keep the Saints refreshed enough to practice, not just survive until the final horn signals a blissful end."You want to not just be running plays, and then you also have an answer if someone is going through a second-level heat illness or God forbid something more serious," Payton said."But, the first thing we want to be able to do is cool the core temperatures down. We've always taken a lot of breaks, so we've handled the heat well. We've had to. But if you went back to Millsaps even, we had a cool tent. This is just much colder."The Tampa Bay Buccaneers don't use cooling benches. For the first time, they are making good use of an indoor practice facility — complete with air conditioning — that was completed earlier this year.Despite playing in Florida, the Buccaneers had never had an indoor practice field before now, and coach Dirk Koetter has used it liberally.He's started several practices outdoors before going inside where the Bucs even installed bleachers for fans attending open sessions. Koetter also keeps the Bucs inside for walkthroughs to avoid the heat.Just standing near the cooling bench is comfortable enough to watch an entire practice without even needing to sit on the chilled aluminum seats. Titans running back Derrick Henry tested the cooling bench last weekend and liked what he found. A big man at 6-foot-3, Henry says he won't use it too much to avoid stiffening up.Walking by to cool off?"It feels good, especially because it's hot out here," Henry said. "It's camp, and we got to put it to use. It's a good tool for us to cool our body off, so we're ready when we go back out there."AP Sports Writers Brett Martel in Louisiana and Fred Goodall in Florida contributed to this report.Follow Teresa M.
