CAMDEN, N. Cheap Wholesale Air Max .J. -- After Philadelphia 76ers players voices were heard in a team meeting, the organization on Friday issued an apology to singer Sevyn Streeter, saying it should have allowed her to perform the national anthem Wednesday night.We are sorry that this happened. After receiving feedback from our players, basketball operations staff and ownership group, we believe that the wrong decision was made, and Sevyn should have been welcomed to sing, the team said in a statement.We apologize to her, and in an effort to move the conversation forward, we have reached out to offer her an opportunity to return and perform at a game of her choice. We are waiting to hear back.Streeter was slated to sing before the 76ers season opener against the Oklahoma City Thunder, but she said in an interview with The Associated Press late Wednesday that she was told she would not sing just minutes before her performance because she was wearing a We Matter jersey.The anthem issue has been a major topic in the sports world in recent months, starting with the decision by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick?not to stand while it is played. Kaepernick cited racial injustice and police brutality among the reasons for his protest, and athletes from many sports -- and many levels, from youth all the way to professional -- have followed his lead in various ways.Sixers players were informed of the Streeter situation by a team representative Thursday before holding a team meeting to discuss the issue and what they wanted to do moving forward.I didnt think it was right, Sixers guard Gerald Henderson said. We talked about it and collectively we thought that was the best decision [to let her sing in the future]. We felt like she should have been able to sing, and for whatever reasons, that didnt happen. I think it is a good idea to reach out to her, and hopefully she can come back and sing her song.Forward Jerami Grant also said he is hopeful that Streeter will accept the offer to come back and sing -- but added that if she doesnt, the players will talk about something else they want to do as a team.We havent figured that out yet, he told ESPNs Jeff Goodman.Coach [Brett] Brown came to us and allowed us to come up with an idea of what to do, Grant added. He gets it. He knows how we feel about this, he knows me and a couple other guys didnt like what happened with the decision not to allow her to sing.We need to move forward. We cant change the past, but were trying to right the wrong.Grant also addressed Streeters We Matter jersey.I dont really look at it as a political statement. It was just a statement in general. We matter. We matter as people, he said.Brown said he wanted his players to share their thoughts in the meeting and said our players voices were heard.If we as an organization had to do what we did again, that decision would not have been made, Brown said after practice Friday. I applaud the ownership group because it happened real quickly yesterday. Immediately we had [a representative] come out. ... I sat with my players, I said, This is whats happened. Youve heard it and in your perfect world, what do you wish would happen? And clearly there was some anxiety with that decision.We made a mistake and we move on, Brown later added on behalf of the organization. Our players voices were heard, and that was their choice, too, to extend an invitation and bring her back.Streeter said she was told two minutes before walking out to perform the anthem that she could not wear my shirt while singing the national anthem. ... I was never given any kind of dress code. I was never asked beforehand to show my wardrobe.Streeter has written songs for Chris Brown, Ariana Grande and other stars. In 2013, she had a top-40 hit with It Wont Stop, a duet with Brown that reached Recording Industry Association of America gold status.The singer, born Amber Denise Streeter, said she was very hurt by the NBA teams actions.I was angry -- extremely, extremely angry -- and disappointed and honestly brought to tears by all of it. It broke my heart, she said. Honestly, I was very excited about being able to perform the national anthem. I was really looking forward to that.A source told ESPN that any on-court performer -- singer, dancer, entertainer -- must sign a contract that gives the 76ers the right to cancel a performance if the standards described in the contract are not met. The Sixers declined to say why Streeters performance was canceled, but according to a report by CBS Philly, the contract prohibited political statements. The 76ers offered her an alternate shirt, but she refused it, the report said.I also felt it was important to express the ongoing challenges and ongoing injustice we face as a black community within the United States of America -- thats very important to me, Streeter said. Yes, we live in the greatest country in the world, but there are issues that we cannot ignore. This cant be ignored.The Sixers play at home Saturday afternoon against the Atlanta Hawks,?and players did not say whether the team has anything planned for the anthem.We talked about some things as far as declaring something to make our stand, Brown said. We are not in a position to do that. I think our best effort to date has been Jerami and Hollis [Thompson] and organization presenting [a $10,000 community initiative check to the International Institute For Advanced Instruction/Gateway to Re-Entry nonprofit]. Trying to do it in ways that we feel is responsible and still bold enough to make the stance we want to make.We simply want to say that we apologize. We made a mistake and we want to move on.The Sixers players, though, made it clear they want to see Streeter sing the anthem at one of their games.She wanted to wear a T-shirt that she felt was important, Henderson said. I dont know if telling her that she couldnt sing was saying that her statement was unimportant. But she should be able to do what she chooses and that is why we are going to call her back. China Wholesale Nike Air Max Shoes .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. Wholesale Air Max Shoes Sale . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. . Reigning world champion Eve Muirhead of Scotland opened with a 12-2 rout of Winnipegs Jennifer Jones in a battle of teams bound for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Kyle Larson first took off his steering wheel and hung it out the window as he did celebratory burnouts. Then he climbed to the roof of his car and raised his arms in triumph.A day after one of the most demonstrative victory celebrations in at least a decade, Larson seemed sheepish about the exuberance he showed at Michigan International Speedway.I probably went a little overboard, Larson said Monday.Nobody was complaining.Larson gave a rare display -- by NASCAR standards -- of raw emotion after winning his first Sprint Cup Series race Sunday. It came in his 99th start, three long years after he burst onto the national scene with projections of being the next big thing in a sport that hypes up young drivers then spits them out when they fail to produce.Although he was lauded by the top names in NASCAR as one of the most talented drivers to come along in decades, Larson couldnt find his way to victory lane. Part of it came for driving for an organization trying to dig itself out of a downturn, some of it was inexperience and some of it was plain driver error.No matter the excuse, Larson was barely sniffing at the front of the pack and always found himself on the outside of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field.The outside is a tough place to be when you drive for Chip Ganassi, who fields winning cars in six different series and can be a bit demanding.Theres always pressure from Chip. He loves winners, Larson said Monday. Thats no secret. He says he loves winners in every tweet he sends. Every week he tells us to do the obvious things right, and then you dont do the obvious things right.But Ganassi has shown patience with his NASCAR rebuild and hes got faith in the 24-year-old Larson. When Larson declined to race Matt Kenseth roughly in the closing laps at Dover earlier this summer, Ganassi didnt complain about his driver failing to do whatever it took to win.Its important to understand how massive a Chase berth is for an organization like Ganassi, and when Larson decided to race cleanly against Kenseth, it was a huge missed opportunity to ear that automatic berth into the playoffs.But Ganassi defended Larsons decision that day and was reedeemed on Sunday when Larson beat Chase Elliott on a late restart to claim his victory. Air Max Shoes Wholesale China. Everybody said `Why didnt you hit him? Why didnt you do this or that? Ganassi said. Thats Kyle. I think its important to understand that these guys are not robots ... theyre all different. Theyre all different personalities.I couldnt be more proud of how hes developed over the last couple of years.So tired of answering when hed finally win a race, Larson had nearly given up Sunday after a slow pit stop cost him the lead. It allowed Elliott to race to a huge advantage that Larson knew he couldnt overcome.Elliott, a rookie, was going to be the next first-time winner and Larson was going to be forced to discuss another race that got away.Then a late caution changed everything and gave Larson a second chance.Thats when the nerves began to take hold.I was relieved that the caution came out because there was absolutely no way I was going to win the race had that yellow not come out, Larson said. I knew what was at stake there on the restart, it was a huge restart. If I dont get the jump, Im going to not make the Chase, not get the win, have to watch Chase get his first win before me. There was just a lot on the line.Larson knew he was better than Elliott on the restarts, but figured Elliott would change something up with the win on the line. Instead, he said Elliott took off in the exact same spot in what turned out to be a tire-spinning poor restart for both drivers.But with a push from Brad Keselowski -- and a fear that he was about to wreck the field -- Larson took off and the checkered flag was finally in sight.The celebration that followed was refreshing and pure: Larson dedicated the win to friend Bryan Clauson, who died from injuries in a sprint car crash earlier this month, then he sat down next to his car to compose himself.It was all emotion, he said. I had spent two or three minutes screaming and running and I was pretty lightheaded. I just wanted to take a second and regain my composure. I didnt need to be passing out in victory lane.

(Sports Network) - A pair of Original Six rivals will battle in the playoffs for the first time in 40 years on Thursday, as the Boston Bruins host the New York Rangers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Cheap NCAA Jerseys . You can catch all the action on TSN beginning at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. Plus you can chat and get updates from TSNs hockey personalities with TSN.cas Game Night Blog on the TSN GameTracker. Although the Rangers and Bruins have met nine times in the playoffs this is the first encounter since the 1973 quarterfinals, when New York downed Boston in five games. Both clubs enter this series after being pushed to the limit in the opening round. The Rangers beat Washington in seven games, closing out the series with Mondays 5-0 win in D.C., but Bostons Game 7 was much more dramatic. Thanks to a ferocious comeback in the closing minutes on Monday, the fourth-seeded Bruins are still alive in the playoffs. Boston nearly blew a 3-1 series lead to the Toronto Maple Leafs in Round 1, losing Games 5 and 6 before falling behind 4-1 in the third period of the decisive contest in Boston. Boston was down 4-1 after Nazem Kadri tallied 5:29 into the third period, but the Bruins scored three unanswered goals and tied the game on Patrice Bergerons marker with 50.2 seconds left in regulation. Bergeron then netted the game-winner 6:05 into overtime to cap a 5-4 comeback win and move Boston into the Eastern Conference semifinals. Now, the Bs find themselves in the second round for the fourth time in five seasons. The only exception was last spring when Boston lost to Washington in the opening round the year after winning the franchises first Stanley Cup since 1972. While Bergeron came up with two big goals in Game 7, fellow forward David Krejci led the way on offense for Boston in Round 1. Krejci, who led Boston with 23 points on 12 goals and 11 assists during the 2011 title run, paced the Bs with five goals and eight assists against Toronto. With his defensive ability, Bergeron could be Bostons most important player up front. He won the Selke Trophy last year as the NHLs best defensive forward and is one of three finalists for the award this season. Bergeron led all Boston forwards in ice time in the opening round, logging just over 20 minutes a game as he posted three goals and an assist against the Leafs. Krejci, Bergeron and Nathan Horton, who had four goals and three assists in the opening round, combined to score 12 of Bostons 22 goals against Toronto. Milan Lucic also recorded nine points on two goals and seven assists against the Maple Leafs, while Jaromir Jagr failed to score but chipped in with four assists. The 41-year-old Jagr leads all active players with 193 career playoff points (78 goals, 115 assists). Johnny Boychuk added two goals from the back end in Round 1, but Zdeno Chara led all Boston defensemen with eight points on one goal and seven assists. The big Slovakian also led the Bruins with an average of 28 minutes, 54 seconds of ice time per game over the seven contests. With fellow defensemen Andrew Ference, Wade Redden and Dennis Seidenberg all battling injuries, Chara may actually see his playing time increase in the second round. Seidenberg and Ference did not practice on Wednesday, while Redden skated briefly before leaving the session early. Bruins head coach Claude Julien isnt saying whether any of the three players will be available for Game 1 on Thursday. The injuries mean Julien may have to ask for more minutes from unproven defensemen like Dougie Hamilton and Matt Bartkowski. Goaltender Tuukka Rask went 19-10-5 with a 2.00 goals against average during the regular season but he posted a 2.49 GAA in seven games against the Leafs. All told, the Finnish netminder is 11-9 with a 2.57 GAA in the playoffs. Meanwhile, the backbone of the Rangers is goaltender Henrik Lundqvist and the reigning Vezina Trophy winner certainly showed his worth in the opening round against Washington. After posting consecutive shutouts against the Capitals in Games 6 and 7, the 31-year-old Swede finished the series with a 1.65 GAA and .947 save percentage. He has eight career postseason shutouts and five of them have come since the start of the 2012 playoffs. Lundqvist enters Round 2 riding a scoreless streak of 120 minutes after allowing his last goal -- an overtime game-winner -- to Washingtons Mike Ribeiro in Game 5. Logging the big minutes in front of Lundqvist are defensemen Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh, who both averaged more than 25 minutes of ice time a game in Round 1. Girardi and Michael Del Zotto led the Rangers blue line with one goal and one assist each, while Steve Eminger chipped in with two helpers. Like the Bruins, New Yorks most glaring weakness is scoring. The Rangers have enough talent up front to sustain pressure, but they often wind up with little to show for it. Leading the charge for New York on offense in the opening round was Derick Brassard, a player who was acquired at the trade deadline in the deal that sent Marian Gaborik to Columbus. Brassard tied four other players for the team lead with two goals against the Caps and he also recorded seven assists. Arron Asham, Brian Boyle, Carl Hagelin and Derek Stepan each posted two goals for New Yorks balanced scoring attack in Round 1. However, the Rangers are waiting for Rick Nash and Brad Richards -- the clubs two most expensive skaters -- to chip in on offense. Nash, who comes with an annual cap hit of $7.8 million, was acquired in a trade with Columbus last summer to help make New York a more formidable offensive team. He did lead the Rangers with 21 goals in the regular season, but had just two assists in the seven-game set. Richards, who signed a nine-year, $58.5 million contract prior to the 2011-12 season, had one goal in the opening round. A former Conn Smythe winner for Tampa Bay in 2004, Richards recorded six goals and nine assists for the Rangers in last years playoffs. The Rangers won two of three meetings against the Bruins this season, but the clubs havent played each other since Feb. 12, when New York notched its second OT victory of the season against Boston. Despite winning two of the three games, Lundqvist had a lofty 2.95 GAA against Boston this season, while Rask went 1-0-2 with a 2.62 GAA. Nash paced New York with three assists in the season series, while Gaborik led the team with three goals against Boston before being traded. Lucic, Horton and Brad Marchand each notched two goals for the Bruins. Game 2 of this series is scheduled for Sunday in Boston. The Bruins were 16-5-3 as the host during the regular season and 2-2 in the first round. New York was 1-3 at Washington in Round 1, posting its only road win in Game 7. The Rangers were 10-12-2 as the guest in 2013. College Jerseys From China . Oyama had six birdies and two bogeys at Kintetsu Kashikojima in the event also sanctioned by the Japan LPGA Tour. "I have been having this neck ache thats been affecting my golf recently," Oyama said. Cheap USA College Jerseys . -- The St. Johns IceCaps weathered a wild first period with the help of goaltender Jussi Olkinuora, before finding offensive inroads in the second. . The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky.SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The San Francisco 49ers signed defensive end Justin Smith to a two-year contract extension Wednesday to keep one of their most important defensive players off the free-agent market next off-season. Smith, 33, has been the anchor to one of the NFLs top defences the past two seasons, helping the 49ers make it to the NFC championship game following the 2011 season and to the Super Bowl last season. He was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2013 season but had no interest in testing the market and negotiated the extension himself with general manager Trent Baalke to remain under contract through 2015. "I wanted to be here. That makes it simple," Smith said. "They wanted me to be here and I wanted to be here so that makes it easy." Smith originally signed a six-year deal to join the 49ers in 2008 and has been a key part of the building process that turned the franchises fortunes around after an eight-year stretch without a playoff berth. Smith was a first-team All-Pro defensive tackle and second-team defensive end in 2011 in a sign of his versatility. He was a second-team selection at both positions last season and has made four straight Pro Bowls. "Justins All-Pro contributions on the field, as well as his leadership on and off the field, are integral to our success as a team," Baalke said in a statement. "Justin consistently sets a standard of excellence, serving as an example for everyone within our organization. This contract allows Justin to finish his career as a 49er!" Since joining the 49ers in 2008, Smith has helped the team rankk second in rushing yards allowed per game (94. Cheap College Jerseys Outlet. .4) and yards per carry (3.6) over that time span. He has 536 tackles, 32 sacks, one interception, seven forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and nine passes defenced since joining the 49ers. Smith missed the final 2 1/2 games of the regular season in 2012 with a partially torn left triceps, ending his streak of 185 consecutive starts. He returned for the post-season but was somewhat limited during a playoff run that ended with a 34-31 loss to Baltimore in the Super Bowl. He had surgery after the season and expects to be fully recovered by the start of training camp next month. "The good news is its healed. Its close to 100 per cent for what I want it to be," he said. "I feel good about it, feel confident about the season. Ive never been injured like that. I didnt know anything with the rehab process, what to expect, what coming out of surgery would be like. Its all been really good." Smith has always prided himself on his durability that allows him to play almost every snap at a physically grueling position where many players rotate in and out of the game to stay fresh. He played more than 90 per cent of San Franciscos defensive snaps last season before the injury, according to Pro Football Focus, and said he doesnt expect that to change even when he is 36-years old at the end of this contract. "I wont be a guy who will be around for 10 snaps, 20 snaps," he said. "Its either Im going or Im not going. If its time to get out of here, Im going. I can get a ticket like everybody else. Thats what Ill do."

In the hours after Sunday nights presidential debate, professional athletes rushed to Twitter to denounce Republican nominee Donald Trumps crude illustration of a locker room. Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Shoes China . Wrote former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, I was in an NFL locker room for eight years, the very definition of the macho, alpha male environment youre so feebly trying to evoke to protect yourself, and not once did anyone approach your breathtaking depths of arrogant imbecility.Locker rooms have been the focus of much attention in the days since The Washington Post released a 2005 recording of Trump bragging about his behavior with women, including grabbing them by their genitals without their consent. In a statement posted several hours after the tape was released, Trump called his words locker room banter, and he echoed that sentiment Sunday night.I dont think you understood what was -- this was locker room talk, Trump said. Im not proud of it. I apologize to my family. I apologize to the American people. Certainly Im not proud of it. But this is locker room talk.It shouldnt be a surprise that Trump rushed to the safety of the locker room to excuse his words. For years players, coaches and media have excused?crude language, hate speech, immorality and even criminal acts in actual locker rooms as toughening-up exercises, harmless hazing or even team bonding.Even as the world around it evolves, the sports sphere is still very much a haven for antiquated ideas, misogynistic beliefs and over-the-top masculinity. By making the locker room a sort of mythologized space where men are free to shed the morality and humanity of the outside world, were, in essence, excusing that behavior.When the Miami Dolphins locker room was splintered by the Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin bullying scandal, former players came out in droves to mansplain how Incognitos actions were just a part of locker room culture. Incognito called his words and actions an indication of the teams closeness and brotherhood.In case youve forgotten, Incognito regularly hurled slurs and threats at Martin, texted with a teammate about rifle scopes that are perfect for shooting black people and directed racial slurs at the Dolphins assistant trainer, who was born in Japan. The Dolphins fired offensive line coach Jim Turner and head athletics trainer Kevin ONeill in the fallout after a workplace harassment report was released, but multiple sources reported that Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland told Martins agent that Martin couldve stopped the bullying and avoided disrupting the team had he simply punched Incognito. And that sentiment wasnt just expressed internally, plenty of players-turned-media agreed that Martin shouldve retaliated with his fists.Not surprisingly, the solve it with violence strategy doesnt always produce the best results. A couple of years after the Dolphins incident, Jets quarterback Geno Smith missed two months of football and, ultimately, lost the starting job after getting punched in the face by then-teammate IK Enemkpali. A five-million dollar guy playing the most important position on the field was on the bench because of locker room culture.The locker room, no matter how different it may be from a boardroom, a factory or a cubicle, is still a workplace. Of course, each workplace will have different standards for whats deemed socially acceptable; a bar will have different standards than a kindergarten classroom. But a workplace should always feel safe -- physically, mentally and emotionally -- for all employees. Trump felt secure seeking solace in the notion of a locker room because for years weve made excuses for actions that should be inexcusable in any venue, under the cover of a culture that should have been left behind years ago.Its the same sort of thinking that goes on when schools send girls home to change clothes because their legs, arms, shoulders, collarbones or chest are distracting to boys. Arguing that boys will be boys and they cant be expected to control themselves is as insulting as assuming that grown men are incapable of acting appropriately in a locker room.So while I understand athletes wanting to put distance between themselves and Trumps comments, they -- and we -- should be just as invested in making locker rooms a place people no longer go to hide.

NEW ORLEANS -- Allenzae Staggers set New Orleans Bowl records with 11 catches for 230 yards and also scored a touchdown to help Southern Mississippi beat Louisiana-Lafayette 28-21 on Saturday night. Wholesale NFL Jerseys .Nick Mullens, the Southern Miss all-time leader in yards passing and passing touchdowns, finished his distinguished career by throwing for 346 yards and two TDs.One of Mullens TD tosses was a 6-yarder to running back Ito Smith, who also rushed for 138 yards and two scores.However, Mullens turnovers helped the Ragin Cajuns keep the game competitive despite the Golden Eagles (7-6) outgaining ULL (6-7) 481 yards to 252.Mullens second-quarter fumble and fourth-quarter interception both led to Cajuns touchdowns, the latter on a short run by ULL quarterback Anthony Jennings that trimmed Southern Miss lead to 28-21 with 5:10 to go.ULL got the ball back once more, starting on its own 18-yard line with 2:02 to go, but Jennings overthrew a fourth-down pass as he rolled right.Jennings scored twice on runs for the Ragin Cajuns, who often struggled to move the ball through the air. A transfer who once started for LSU, Jennings completed 8 of 20 passes for 95 yards. He was intercepted once -- by Tarvarius Moore on the Southern Miss goal line -- and sacked six times, including three times by JaBoore Pool.REGROUPINGThe Cajuns composure was tested early. Mullens completed his first three passes for 127 yards and a touchdown to Smith, who also rushed for the games opening TD as the Golden Eagles took a 14-0 lead inside the first 8 minutes.But ULL methodically pulled itself back into the game, starting when Jennings led a nine-play, 66-yard drive capped by his 4-yard TD to make it 14-7. In the second quarter, Tremaine Lightfoots sack and strip of Mullens was scooped and returned 15 yards by Otha Peters to the Southern Miss 29, setting up a tying 12-yard TD run by reserve QB Dion Ray, who periodically ran plays out of a wildcat formation.TAKING THEIR TIMEAs the first half ended, Mullens rushed the Southern Miss offense to the line of scrimmage to try to spike the ball and stop the clock so the Golden Eagles could try a 45-yard field goal. The clock read zero after his spike, but officials ordered 1 second put back on the clock. Louisiana-Lafayette then used both of its remaining timeouts in an effort to disrupt kicker Parker Shaunfields rhythm. After the second timeout, officials decided to review the previous play and ruled that time had expired after all, ending the half in a 14-all tie.UP NEXTSouthern Miss: The first order of business is to find a replacement for Mullens, who leaves the Golden Eagles as the programs career leader in yards passing (11,994) and TD passes (87). Complicating that transition at QB is the departure of three-year starting center Cameron Tom and starting guards Oliver Bates and Brandon Farmer.Louisiana-Lafayette: The Cajuns are expected to apply to the NCAA for another year of eligibility for Jennings, but prospects for approval appear slim. The next QB could come from the junior college ranks. The offense also loses Elijah McGuire, who ranks second all-time in rushing for ULL, and top receiver Al Riles.---More AP college football: and Jerseys NFL Cheap . PETERSBURG, Fla.

Because of that, he’ll be a Hall of Famer at some point.” – Head Coach Sean McDermottMelvin Gordon's nose for goal line solves Chargers red zone woes - Eric Williams"You see it around the league -- the best backs, that's what they do. He also has embraced that 'Shoot, I don't care if you're handing it to me, I'm going to run the heck out of a route and throw it to me.' ... At Wisconsin, it was handed to him and he ran through holes like this," said Rivers holding his hands out wide. "I think he's just grown as a pro."Refocused, NFL Week 2: Los Angeles Chargers 31 Customized Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys , Buffalo Bills 20 - PFF Analysis TeamRookie safety Derwin James is already making plays in the NFL. James was all over the field as he led the Chargers in tackles. In addition, James was effective as a pass rusher while also adding a pass breakup in coverage.Los Angeles Chargers S Derwin James is Going to be the Best Safety in the NFL - Ernie PadaonWe have ourselves a superstar.

DAL Wk. 12 #5.) Desmond King – 5 tackles, interception, touchdown, pass defendedDo you guys remember when the Chargers somehow snagged a former Jim Thorpe Award winner in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft?King’s fall down draft boards still befuddles many to this day. I mean ,could you imagine a defensive back that was just a year removed from leading the nation in interceptions and being named college football’s best defensive back falling that low?No. Nope. Never.After Telesco made it known he was selecting the former Hawkeye, he quickly became the most interesting draft prospect for the Chargers that year whose name wasn’t Forrest Lamp. Fans wondered where he was going to play, especially with the recent singing of Jahleel Addae to a new contract and the addition of Tre Boston in free agency.It didn’t take long for the coaching staff to realize that King’s skillset was best utilized in the slot where he could maximize his aggressive style of play against opponents’ running backs and tight ends. Once King earned a sizable share of reps just several games into the season Los Angeles Chargers T-Shirt , it was evident he could become one of the stickiest tacklers on the team.In what turned out to be a pretty-lopsided Thanksgiving Day victory against the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, King made good on a lofty promise he made on twitter before he was even drafted.Against a reeling Cowboys offense, King undercut an ill-advised pass to Cole Beasley from Dak Prescott and strode out the length of the field. Behind an animated Melvin Ingram leading the way, the rookie faced zero opposition on his way to the end zone.The interception by King was the most delicious cherry on top of a victory that was just oh-so sweet as the Bolts not only found a way to embarrass America’s team, but they were also able to do it in the “house that Jerry built.”

Powered by a dominant running game Desmond King Jersey , big plays from quarterback Philip Rivers and a rookie kicker who didn't miss in his NFL debut, the Chargers rolled to a 38-14 win on Sunday over the Cleveland Browns and rookie QB Baker Mayfield, who got little help from his teammates.Nearly two years after leaving FirstEnergy Stadium in disgrace after the Browns beat them for their only win in 2016, the Chargers (4-2) won their third straight and made sure their next few days would be enjoyable."Coming across the country and playing in a hostile environment, they executed well, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. "That's the way it's supposed to look."Los Angeles will stay in Cleveland before flying later this week to England to face Tennessee on Sunday."It was good," said Rivers, the 36-year-old QB who continued one of the best starts of his 15-year career. "It was even better because we're going to be here a while. You don't let those negative thoughts creep in, but I was telling (defensive end) Melvin (Ingram) as were coming off of the bus, 'We can't lose this game and then stay four or five days.' I couldn't think of anything much worse."And that's no knock on Cleveland.The Chargers played their best all-around game this season against the Browns (2-3-1), who were competitive in their first five games but were overwhelmed by a Los Angeles team that might not be getting the attention it deserves.Melvin Gordon rushed for three touchdowns and 132 yards, Rivers connected with Tyrell Williams on two TDs and San Diego's defense sacked Mayfield five times and twice intercepted the No. 1 overall pick .The Chargers rushed for 246 yards on 36 carries, eating up yardage and time while taking some pressure off Rivers. Gordon scored on runs of 4, 10 and 11 yards for his first career three-TD rushing game."The guys up front were blocking," Rivers said. "We had a heck of a plan and they executed it. It's huge. We talk a lot about balance and I think that's what helps some of those run actions. We haven't had many days when we've ran more than we've thrown. From what I can remember Cheap Joey Bosa Jersey , those are fun. I'll take those any time we can get them."For Mayfield, his third career start was a tough lesson.He tweaked his ankle when he slipped on the sideline in the first quarter, and Mayfield was plagued by a few costly drops, including two by rookies Antonio Callaway and Damion Ratley in the first half that could have been TDs.Rivers complimented Mayfield for battling through a difficult day."He's a gritty, tough and competitive guy," Rivers said. "He has a heck of a career ahead of him. He made some really good throws today that were close. If I wasn't pulling against him to beat him, I would've said 'You should've caught those.' There were a couple of them that I thought they should've caught, but I'm glad they didn't."He's going to have a heck of a career. You can just tell in the way he commands. He was running no-huddles and doing all of that in his third or fourth start. He's going to be just fine."KICK STARTFor once, the Chargers stayed between the uprights."Well, we made all of our damn kicks," Lynn said, opening his postgame news conference. "All the extra points, all the field goals, so that's improvement."Rookie Michael Badgley kicked a 44-yard field goal and made all five PATs in his debut. He was signed Thursday and filled in for Caleb Sturgis, who has a quad injury and accuracy issues.Lynn said he's comfortable with Badgley Womens Michael Schofield Jersey , but left his kicking plans undecided.GROUND AND POUNDCleveland's defense yielded yardage in huge chunks.The Chargers had 12 offensive plays gain more than 15 yards, with seven picking up 20 or more."They punched us in the mouth early, up on the opening drive and they were just doing some things that obviously we couldn't stop," said safety Damarious Randall, who was in position to intercept Rivers in the end zone but had the ball pulled away by Williams for a 45-yard TD.WIDE WORLDThe Browns' extensive injury issues at wide receiver worsened when Rod Streater suffered a neck injury in the first quarter. Streater's loss left Jarvis Landry, Callaway and Ratley as the only healthy receivers. Ratley briefly left in the fourth quarter with an injury but finished with six catches for 82 yards.Cleveland signed free agent Breshad Perriman on Saturday, but he hasn't had time to learn the playbook and was inactive. Rashard Higgins (knee) and Derrick Willies (broken collarbone) are both out.Jackson conceded the Browns need help."We do, but nobody is going to cry about it right now," he said. "No other team cares about what our issues are. We have to fix them, and we will. We are just getting off of a game where we did not play as well. We will look at every avenue to fix whatever we think the issues are as we move forward so I am sure we will do that."Roster Watch: Craig Mager closing in on fifth cornerback spot Craig Mager is like a cockroach that just won’t die. You can bench him, banish him to the practice squad, even give his job to an undrafted free agent, and he just won’t go away. And, to the dismay of many, it seems Mager is poised to last at least another season with the Los Angeles Chargers.Yes Youth Casey Hayward Jersey , you read that right. With two weeks remaining in the preseason, and the week three “dress rehearsal” looming this weekend, the team continues to give every indication that Craig Mager has a virtual vice grip on what figures to be the fifth and final spot on the cornerback depth chart.As excited as the fans were about undrafted free agents Brandon Facyson and Tony Brown entering camp, the coaches have been even more excited about the perceived new-and-improved Craig Mager. They have repeatedly praised him for the way he handled his demotion to the practice squad in 2017, and Ron Milus, Gus Bradley and Philip Rivers have all praised his improved attitude and technique. You might say they’ve been effusive in their praise.They’re all but telling us he’s going to make the cut, folks.And, while I don’t remember Mager so much as being targeted in either preseason game, that probably only helps his case. I mean, as bad as he’s been in the past; it’s hard for him to do anything to hurt his cause if teams don’t challenge him. This is particularly true if the coaching staff is actively looking for a reason to carry him.What’s more, if the preseason rotations in the defensive backfield are any indication, Facyson and Brown aren’t really even nipping at Mager’s heels for that fifth spot on the depth chart, either.It looks to me like Jeff Richards, who spent all of last season on the Chargers practice squad, is currently the sixth corner on the depth chart Youth Joe Barksdale Jersey , and might also be the only player with a chance to unseat Mager. Richards has played every snap with the second team through two preseason games and hasn’t really done anything to help or hurt himself.Granted, Brandon Facyson played opposite Richards in Arizona, and had a pretty good game in doing so, but he was promptly shuttled back to the third team when Hayward returned against Seattle. While Tony Brown has functioned as Des King’s primary backup at slot corner in both games, I’m just not sure he’s done enough on defense or on special teams to overcome the deep ball he yielded against the Cardinals.What does all this mean? Well, for starters, barring a major change in the pecking order, it almost certainly means Craig Mager is going to be the fifth corner when the Los Angeles Chargers break camp at the end of August. But for all you Facyson and Brown fans, it likely also means they’re competing with Jeff Richards for what figures to be no more than two practice squad spots. Right now my money is on Richards and Facyson nabbing those spots.So, don’t be surprised if Craig Mager makes this team and, while we’re at it...please don’t shoot the messenger.

That is a painful injury. Last summer I partially tore my ACL and wound up with some severe bone bruising as well. It is very painful and takes a long time to heal. Whats worse, is that the only way to let it heal quickly is to just stay off of it, which means after the bone bruise is healed Youth Kyzir White Jersey , he’ll need time to get back in shape. He is lucky though that there wasn’t an accompanying torn ligament of any kind. Given the length of time he might be out, there is a concern he may have to go on the IR. Cantrell was just starting to put things together and look good in camp. It’s unfortunate for the Chargers to have lost him, for now, but the team dodged a bullet with it just being a bone bruise, and depending on how this is handled he should be available later in the year.

a promising trait for any rookie quarterback.What the New York Jets displayed on defense and special teams may have been even more encouraging for Darnold and his teammates.Darnold threw an interception on the very first snap of his NFL career — and it was run back for a Detroit touchdown — but New York's quarterback shouldn't sweat that too much after the Jets stormed back and routed the Lions 48-17 on Monday night. Darnold threw for 198 yards and two touchdowns Authentic Lawrence Guy Jersey , and the Jets also scored on defense and special teams."We're going to play better every game, that's our goal," wide receiver Quincy Enunwa said. "Obviously you can't always make it happen, that's going to be what we're striving for. All three phases being successful, scoring on all three phases. When you can do that, you can be a pretty good team."Darnold earned the starting job after the Jets drafted him third overall in this year's draft. His performance alone was cause for excitement Monday, but on this night, New York seemed to have a pretty solid cast around him as well. The Jets intercepted Matthew Stafford four times in a dismal debut for new Lions coach Matt Patricia."Give the Jets credit. They obviously are the ones that played well tonight," Patricia said. "We have to do better, I have to coach better and we have to play better."New York scored 31 unanswered points in the final 9:36 of the third quarter after the Lions had tied it at 17. Darron Lee returned an interception for a touchdown, and Andre Roberts scored on a 78-yard punt return 67 seconds later.What we learned from New York's resounding win:REBOUNDDarnold's start to this game was pretty much the worst-case scenario. On the first play from scrimmage, his ill-advised throw sailed toward the left sideline and was picked off by Quandre Diggs, who returned it 37 yards for a 7-0 lead. That was Darnold's only major error, however. He not only showed he could play well in prime time on the road, he also showed he could handle adversity.The 21-year-old Darnold was the youngest quarterback to start a season opener since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. He was also the first quarterback to win his first start by 31 or more points since Tom Brady in 2001, per ESPN Stats & Info.STUCK IN NEUTRALThe Lions were unimpressive in the preseason, but it's always tough to tell how much that really matters. This opener confirmed this team has issues. It was the most lopsided loss for Detroit in an opener since a 45-0 shellacking at Washington in 1991. (Of course Authentic Shaq Mason Jersey , the Lions ended up making the NFC title game that season).Detroit had scored at least 25 points in seven straight season openers, an NFL record. That streak is now over.Perhaps most distressing, the Jets said they had a read on Stafford's signals."We were calling out their plays as he was getting up to the line," Lee said.NO BALANCEDetroit did a lot to try to shore up the running game this offseason, drafting Kerryon Johnson and adding LeGarrette Blount. It was enough of an overhaul that Ameer Abdullah was inactive for the opener.The Lions ended up with 39 yards on 15 carries. Blount ran four times for minus-3 yards. Not a good sign."I know it sounds crazy, but we're a lot better football team than we showed," tackle Taylor Decker said. "I think we all know that and we're all secure and comfortable with that. We'll get better moving forward."X-FACTOR?Maybe it was just poor coverage by Detroit, but Roberts also had a 43-yard punt return in the first quarter in addition to his touchdown.EXPECTATIONSOne victory doesn't make the Jets a Super Bowl team, but the lopsided nature of this one is hard to ignore, and now New York has winnable games the next two weeks against Miami and at Cleveland.Detroit is at San Francisco next weekend.Ryan Allen had one of the best punts of his career When New England Patriots punter Ryan Allen makes headlines, it’s rarely a good thing. Maybe he’s dropped a snap as a field goal holder, or maybe he’s shanked an ugly punt attempt.So when Allen launched an unbelievably beautiful punt that Jonathan Jones downed on the Houston Texans 1-yard line, I thought it would be a good thing to highlight the punt- and it turns out that this kick is arguably the best of Allen’s career. This was the second time in Allen’s career that he’s pinned an opponent on the 1-yard line, the other coming in the first quarter against the Baltimore Ravens in 2016 (he stuck the Ravens on the 2-yard line on a different punt that game), but this punt happened late in the fourth quarter. The stakes were pretty high as far as regular season punts are concerned.But despite the fantastic outcome, Allen felt like he could have done better.Well, even if Jonathan Jones had to down the football Womens Julian Edelman Jersey , Allen would have a hard time making a better kick than the 54-yarder to seal the victory against the Texans. I was curious to know if Allen had a better punt net percentage than the 54 of a limited 55 yards (98.2%) he picked up on this punt, so I went through every punt of his career.(I know Allen gained the maximum amount of yards from this punt. I wanted to give allowance for longer punts to be considered more impressive)It turns out that this was the second-best punt of Allen’s career, as his 56-yard punt against the Ravens that ended on the 1-yard line traveled two additional yards.The average Allen punt gains 63.3% of the yards to the opposing goal line, so picking up 98.2% of the yards is extremely impressive. Allen had a second punt against the Texans to the 9-yard line that is tied for the 50th best of his career and contributed to one of the best days of Allen’s career.When you look at Allen’s entire day, he gained 30.5% more yards than expected on his punts, the 17th-best day of his 6-year career. Allen’s in the middle of a hot streak, too, with five of his past six games ranking in the top 18 of his career (Allen didn’t punt in the Super Bowl so I’m not counting it).Allen’s best game? Also against the Texans, during Tom Brady’s suspension in 2016, where all seven of his punts landed in the red zone, six were inside the 15-yard line, and four were inside the 10-yard line.These incremental yards matter, as Belichick noted, because every little bit helps when the game comes down to a Hail Mary attempt.

Tom Brady: If your family’s anything like mine Youth Rob Gronkowski Jersey , it’s one of the questions you get almost as often as “So are you dating anyone?” at Thanksgiving and Christmas:“Have you thought about grad school?”Yeah, I’m pretty sure that grad school’s not quite the same as undergrad when you could show up in basketball shorts and a band t-shirt, pay attention for 10 minutes, pass out mid-lecture, update my fantasy football lineup, and shotgun 38 Rockstar Energy Drinks before finals, so, even if a few Patriots players think an MBA is “fun” and a “welcome change from football” really seems like it’d cut into my 20 hours of watching football on weekends, and Mondays, and even Thursdays, among other things.The list of Patriots receivers (and running backs and offensive linemen, for that matter) that’ve attempted to learn the New England offensive playbook and struck out is almost as long as the list of “who?”-type dudes that Bill Belichick has turned into local legends, household names, and occasionally, even All-Pro superstars. And isn’t it a bit weird that even though we hear a lot about how innovative and LOST-level-complicated the Patriots offensive playbook is, we don’t really ever hear many details about WHY it’s so tough and separates the wheat from the chaff, the men from the boys, and the awkwardly feminine from the possibly Canadian?Leave it to Tom Brady himself to explain, and - let’s just get this straight for the self-aggrandizing meatheads that are somehow paid six figures to talk about this stuff - see, if you ask him about football, Tom loves to talk about football! Wild, right?From NESN:Gonna have to call BS on that last assessment of your skillz there Womens Elandon Roberts Jersey , Tom, but please go on.Want more on how complicated this offense is to learn? Of course you do. Check this out, courtesy of Chris Brown of Smart Football, writing for Grantland in 2013......hold on, I need a minute.R.I.P. in Peace, Grantland, and damn you, ESPN, for axing the only good thing you ever got your hands on besides the OG Sportscenter anchors.ANYWAY.Since this was written right after the 2012 season, when the Patriots had replaced their ‘07-’10 shotgun spread offense with a two-tight-end offense that was bamboozling defenses all over the league all over again, keep that glorious offense in mind.(I’m going to cherry-pick a few quotes here to make my point, but definitely read the whole thing and I guarantee it’ll put an evil smirk on your face the next time Brady runs no-huddle and goes from a 2-back set with the tight end in line and 2 receivers playing wide to a 5-wide look the next play with the same personnel.)So, starting with that, it’s the exact opposite of your flag football team where your QB just points to you and goes “9”, and you go deep.Why is that important, three-time Super Bowl champion Patriots offensive coordinator Charlie Weis?For a specific example:That, in a nutshell, is what they mean when they say if you’re a receiver in New England, you don’t just learn your routes, you learn EVERY route on the play. Throw in Brady’s love of audibles based on the defensive look, the option routes that can make the difference between a guy like Julian Edelman sprinting right into coverage or into nothing but green grass, and Womens Rex Burkhead Jersey , oh, sometimes you’re going to need to do all that while you’re going no-huddle and sprinting back to the line to line up in a different formation than you did last time.THAT’S graduate-level.Remember that next time you want Dez Bryant or someone like that to come in and learn the playbook by kickoff.New England Patriots links 9/10/18 - Overreaction Monday: Pats’ D opens eyes TEAM TALKPost Game Notes and Records: Patriots remain undefeated at home against Houston.Gamebook: Full Texans-Patriots stats.Erik Scalavino recaps the Patriots Week 1 win from the press box at Gillette: A promising start.Paul Perillo shares his game observations: Defense contained Deshaun Watson and the Texans in a 27-20 win to open the season.Andy Hart’s Stock Watch: Gronk, Gilmore lead takedown of Texans.Post Game Quotes: Patriots and Texans.Post Game Pressers: Bill Belichick (8.39 min. video) - Tom Brady (4.41 min. video) - Rob Gronkowski (4.54 min. video) - James White (3.12 min. video) - Devin McCourty (1.24 min. video)Post Game Press Pass: Flowers, Develin, Dorsett, and Wise Jr. react to win over Texans.

will beat the spread Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL Youth Stephen Gostkowski Jersey , powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Patriotsfans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.The Matt Patricia era of the Detroit Lions has gotten off to a slow start with losses to both the New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers. Patricia, the former New England Patriots defensive coordinator, was supposed to inject the Detroit defense with some new life, but they’ve allowed an average of 39 points per game.In Patricia’s defense Youth Julian Edelman Jersey , 7 points came on a pick six. It’s a weak defense.But now Lions fans aren’t believing in their team anymore and it’s showing up in the data. When we ask fans to predict the final score in our FanPulse survey, they typically provide homer results with their teams exceeding the Las Vegas projection. This isn’t the case with Detroit.The Patriots are 7-point favorites over the Lions and Pats Pulpit readers believe New England will win by 10 points. This is similar to the 4.5-point homer edge both Patriots and Jaguars fans had in week 2 and 1-point homer edge the Patriots fans had and 8-point homer edge (!!) that Texans fans had in week 1.Instead of leaning towards their team, Lions fans project the Patriots to win by 9 points. Lions fans are so down on their team they expect New England to cover the spread. That’s not good.I mean, I hope they’re right and that the Patriots crush the Lions, but that’s just disheartening to see. All I have to say is that the Patriots started the Bill Belichick era 0-4 and eventually 2-8, before turning it around in season two and going on a pretty solid run of success. Give Patricia time.2018 Patriots roster tracker: New England loses four players Youth Rob Gronkowski Jersey , including cornerback Cyrus Jones The NFL’s waiver pickup deadline has come and gone and there have been multiple moves: the New England Patriots themselves picked up a pair of wide receivers and saw three of their own players get claimed. Furthermore a fourth player was lost despite making it through waivers unselected. Ergo, the following four men are no longer with the Patriots:All four players were eligible to return to New England via the practice squad but none of them will be back.The biggest name on the list is undoubtably Jones: the former second-round draft pick, who spent all of 2017 on injured reserve, was unable to earn a backup spot at cornerback thanks to the emergence of JC Jackson and Keion Crossen and was subsequently released. A bit surprisingly, he went unclaimed through the waiver wire and then opted to join his hometown team over the Patriots.

Key Information and First Quarter Open Thread Ladies and gentlemen White Trae Waynes Jersey , boys and girls, children of all ages. . .We’ve made it!Welcome to the 2018 regular season opener for your Minnesota Vikings here at The Daily Norseman! We are less than an hour away from today’s opening kickoff, as the most important team in the National Football League plays host to the San Francisco 49ers in the first game of the brand new season.Yes, this isn’t the format that you’re used to seeing for the Game Threads. I’m working on a way to bring that format back but, at the present time, I’m a bit limited. So, this is what we’re going with at the moment. With that, here’s everything you need to know about today’s matchup.Time: Sunday, 9 September, noon Central timeLocation: U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MinnesotaTelevision coverage: KMSP-9 in the Twin Cities, and a bunch of other FOX affiliates across the nation that you can see right here.Radio coverage: Vikings Radio Network, Sirius Channel 81, XM Channel 226Line: Minnesota -7 Youth Harrison Smith Jersey , Over/Under 45.5Prediction: Vikings 27, 49ers 17Three keys1) Establish the run early - Everyone is going to expect Kirk Cousins to come out slinging, looking for Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen to get the Minnesota offense moving. The bigger key, honestly, could be to get the run game going early to give a solid 49ers defense something to think about. San Francisco comes into this one without star linebacker Reuben Foster, and the Vikings would do well to exploit that early. Whether it’s Dalvin Cook, Latavius Murray, or even Mike Boone, the Vikings need to get a run game going early on.2) Give Jimmy Garoppolo a rude welcome - By the same token, Garoppolo is one of the names that’s on everyone’s mind going into this season. He help the Niners run off five consecutive wins to finish their season after a 1-10 start, and the Niners responded by making him the highest-paid player in football. . .a title he held for a couple of weeks. Everson Griffen draws a tough assignment against veteran Joe Staley, but on the other side we’ll see Danielle Hunter. . .who spent all preseason toying with opposing linemen. . .lining up against Mike McGlinchey, the Niners’ top pick in this year’s draft. Hopefully that’s a matchup that Hunter can exploit.3) Win the special teams battle - With a new punter and a kicker making his regular season debut, it’s going to be interesting to see how the special teams units function for the Vikings in this matchup. Minnesota has been solid on special teams in recent years, and against a quality opponent like the Niners Youth Stefon Diggs Jersey , they’ll need to do what they can to find advantages. They don’t need to make mistakes on special teams and give the Niners extra opportunities.Know the Foe: Niners NationTwitter: The Daily Norseman’s collection of bloggersFaceBook: Twitter List by DailyNorseman As yours truly is still on vacation, Ted will be along with the Open Threads for the other three quarters.

Vikings’ NFC North Rivals: Authentic Riley Reiff Jersey , as you may have heard 6,246 times this week, is dress-rehearsal week.The starters and their backups play the majority of the game, and there’s not much mystery outside of an occasional younger player perhaps trying to unseat a more expensive veteran.Thursday’s games will be the final chance for many of these players to showcase their talents not only for their own teams, but for all 31 other teams who might be looking to fill a roster spot, as well.Other than a few big name players outside of the division getting massive contract extensions, it was a relatively quiet few days in the NFC North.By Friday, however, NFL teams will have a pretty good idea of what their rosters will look like, and we can all get on with speculating about football games that matter.With that, let’s take a look around the division and see if there were any newsworthy nuggets or intrigue among our division rivals.Chicago BearsChicago slipped past the Kansas City Chiefs last weekend, 27-24.At first glance, this would have seemed like a bit of a nail-biter, save for the fact that Chicago pretty much rested all of their starters, and Kansas City did not.And that the Chiefs scored ten late points to make it that close.On the impressive side, Chase Daniel once again looks like the player that some Vikings fans were clamoring for a few years ago.He’s a solid number two (and really, who doesn’t like that?), and with the way Mitchell Trubisky likes to bootleg, that may just come in handy at some point for Chicago this season.Wide Receiver Kevin White caught his first touchdown as a professional, which was good to see. The Bears made him the second receiver of the board in the 2015 draft, but to say he has struggled to stay healthy is an understatement.And it’s not like the injuries he’s had have been of the nagging variety.A broken left tibia ended his rookie season.A broken left fibula ended his sophomore campaign.A fractured left shoulder blade ended season three.Just a suggestion - maybe some milk in the diet?Get that calcium up a little?Linebacker Roquan Smith - the team’s first round draft pick who finally signed his rookie contract last week - didn’t see any game action, as the team is letting him get up to speed.Bubble watch:Trying to be objective, I don’t see any players on the Bears “bubble” that would draw any interest from Zimmer or Spielman.This shouldn’t be surprising, as the Bears roster looks a lot like the one Leslie Frazier had in Minnesota in 2013 - a few good players surrounded by a whole lot of pretty average players.Detroit LionsThe Lions might be the most enigmatic team in the NFC North this year.They have an immensely talented offense , led by a quarterback who can make every throw.They’ve built a pretty great offensive line to protect him.O.C. Jim Bob Cooter - who has the best NASCAR name of any person not involved with racing - had a top ten scoring offense last season.And after not having much in the way of a running game for the past several seasons, they seem to be able to run the ball now, too, as their top four running backs each averaged more than four yards per carry last weekend.And it’s not like their defense is devoid of talent.Glover Quinn, Darius Slay and Ziggy Ansah are all very good.And yet, the team was down 27-6 at one point last weekend, even giving up an Antonio-Cormartie-esque 109 yard missed field goal return.They rallied late, however, and beat the Bucs 33-30.The folks over at Pride of Detroit were pretty excited on Monday, as 72 percent of fans voting graded the teams’ signing of 32 year old defensive end Robert Ayers somewhere in the ‘B’ to ‘A-’ range.Well, after about 30 hours, the team released him.Apparently GM Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia were seen speaking to one another on the sideline during yesterday’s practice, and Quinn was seen being very animated while on his phone a few minutes later.Ayers was nowhere to be found.Either Robert Ayers did some serious backpedaling, or he was so good that he accomplished all he set out to do in just one day.Either way, I hope for Quinn’s sake there’s some sort of lemon law protection for teams buying used defensive ends.Bubble Watch:The Detroit Free Press is projecting the team will keep five backs - Ameer Abdullah, Kerryon Johnson, LeGarrette Blount, Theo Riddick, and Nick Bellore (FB).For a team that seemingly could use the roster space elsewhere, keeping five seems a little bit of overkill.Abdullah and Zach Zenner would likely be the ones out.Johnson and Blount are better bangers, and Riddick is a better pass catcher.With the Vikings having their own difficult decision to make regarding Mike Boone and Roc Thomas, neither Zenner or even Abdullah probably wouldn’t move the needle for Mike ZImmer and Company.However, one player that may not make the 53 that could potentially draw interest from a lineman needy team such as the Vikings is third-year Guard Joe Dahl.He’s not a bad player - he may simply become a victim of the numbers game in Detroit.He won the Pro Football Focus game ball for his efforts in week seventeen last year versus Chicago.The Lions’ offensive line is the deepest unit on the roster, and a pretty good player may well be let go.It’ll definitely be something to watch out for.Green Bay PackersAt some point in the past year Authentic Matt Wile Jersey , an NFL executive drew up the preseason schedule.This person is or was responsible for not only making sure that everyone has an opponent every week, but that the matchups would be appealing, as well.Well, the Packers and Raiders preseason week three matchup should have been just about as perfect a game for fans of preseason football (that just sounds stupid, doesn’t it?) as any, right?It’s Rodgers versus Derek Carr!It’s John Gruden!It’s Carr throwing to Jordy Nelson going against his old team!It’s Khalil Mack running roughshod over the Packers line!It’s鈥?uhhh鈥?it’s鈥?yeah.It’s preseason.Rodgers didn’t play.Carr threw three balls.Nelson didn’t catch any of them.Mack is still holding out.And Chucky Gruden?Well, the two teams traded field goals all night long before the Raiders finally broke away with a 13-6 victory.Green Bay fans got a scare before the game, as rookie linebacker Oren Burks was pulled from the lineup after warmups with an apparent injury.Burks has impressed in preseason, and a significant injury would have been terrible for an already thin linebacking core.The Packers also made a move this week to add some depth at linebacker, acquiring Antonio Morrison from the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for defensive back Lenzy Pipkins.Morrison has some starting experience in Indy, but is currently listed with the third-stringers on the depth chart.Ty Montgomery was nicked up in the game versus the Raiders, but the injury doesn’t appear to be serious.The rest of the Packers backfield situation to start the season is a bit cloudy.Jamaal Williams, who ended up with the Packers starting job last season, is listed number one on the depth chart.Montgomery is second, followed by Aaron Jones (who is suspended two games to start the season for substance abuse).Montgomery has a history of injuries, and with Jones suspension, the team may be watching Detroit’s backfield competition closely.Bubble Watch:Here’s the part where Packers fans will roll their eyes at me.There are no players on the packers bubble that would have a chance to make the Vikings roster.That’s a compliment to the Vikings’ players, an indictment of the Packers depth at certain positions, and also an acknowledgement that the players the Packers could part ways with don’t fit what Zimmer and his coaches might be looking for.So don’t get your undies in a bunch.You folks are so damn sensitive, sometimes.For instance, Quinten Rollins is a name that keeps coming up as “out” when the rosters are cut down.He’s not better depth at any spot in the Vikings’ defensive backfield than any player the Vikings will keep.And I’ll take my chances with Boone, Thomas and Ham over any running back the Packers don’t keep.The Packers are probably going to cut some players who will end up on other rosters.I just don’t see any of them ending up across the St. Croix next week. The San Francisco 49ers have plenty of holes to fill before their Week 2 game against the Detroit Lions — starting on the offensive line.Two right guards were lost to injury in Sunday's 24-16 loss at Minnesota. The good news for San Francisco is that none of the injuries the team suffered Sunday appear to be season-ending.Right guard Mike Person left in the second quarter with a strained foot. His replacement, Joshua Garnett, exited with a dislocated toe on his left foot the third quarter. That meant rookie Mike McGlinchey had to shift from right tackle to guard in his NFL debut.Coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that he didn't have a timetable for the return of Person or Garnett Authentic Mike Remmers Jersey , but he expressed relief that neither appears to be a candidate for season-ending injured reserve.The 49ers have a spot open on the 53-man roster, and Shanahan said several players will be brought in for workouts, with the idea of adding someone to the active roster by Wednesday."I know we've got some workouts. We're bringing in (players at) a number of positions tomorrow," Shanahan said. "We've got some guys who are a possibility. We've got guys who are a possibility on the practice squad."Receiver Marquise Goodwin, who collided with a defender in the second quarter Sunday, has a deep thigh bruise on his right leg and is day-to-day.Should he miss time, it could open up a bigger role for rookie Dante Pettis, who caught a 22-yard touchdown from Jimmy Garoppolo for his first career catch.Linebacker Brock Coyle, who started Sunday for the injured Malcolm Smith, is in the concussion protocol. He'd have to be cleared by doctors to play against Detroit.With the right side of the offensive line disrupted by injuries, the Vikings put consistent pressure on Garoppolo and sacked him three times.After Person and Garnett left the game, the 49ers turned to reserve tackle Garry Gilliam, who had exited the concussion protocol a few days before the opener. Gilliam took over at right tackle as McGlinchey shifted to guard.Person is also the backup to center Weston Richburg. But if Erik Magnuson can return from a hamstring injury this week, it would provide a boost as he can also play center.Shanahan was pleased with McGlinchey, the No. 9 overall draft pick out of Notre Dame, who held his own after moving to guard."It was his first NFL game, he had never played guard and you could see there was nothing about him that was scared to try it," Shanahan said. "He had to do it and he didn't flinch at all."NOTES: Shanahan reiterated the missed opportunities in the red zone Sunday, as the 49ers scored just one touchdown with four opportunities inside the Vikings' 20. Asked by a reporter if he would consider using more run-pass options in the red zone, Shanahan replied: "We (tried) one yesterday. ... The RPO questions are getting hilarious to me. It's not just you. It's the whole planet right now."
