     Coach Sean Payton says the Saints have brought in veteran running back Mike Gillislee

    Payton says he sees Gillislee as a first- and second-down runner https://www.thesaintsfanshop.com/Alvin-Kamara-Jersey who has earned hard yards for his past teams. Payton says he does not envision Gillislee getting much work as a receiver Andrus Peat Jersey , as some other running backs do in the Saints offense.Gillislee is a five-year veteran who spent last season with New England. He carried the ball 104 times for the Patriots, gaining 383 yards and scoring five touchdowns. He also caught one pass for 15 yards.His most productive season came in 2016 with Buffalo, when he rushed for 577 yards and eight TDs to go with 50 yards and one TD receiving.The Saints open the regular season at home Sunday against Tampa Bay.48View Gallery Gallery:PHOTOS: Saints ready for regular season after 28-0 win over RamsDerick E.

     his NFL stock took a beating after a poor

    Bengals at Colts: 5 young Cincinnati players who need to start the season strong More than weve seen in any recent season Andy Dalton Jersey , the Bengals will be relying on the teams youngest players to play significant snaps this year. Only in a few positions is there true veteran depth, and a good number of seasoned players were shown the door in the last few weeks. The youth movement in Cincinnati has begun, and that means the teams need some of its most inexperienced players to play at a high level starting in Week 1. Here are just a few of the young players who need to start the season on the right foot and make an impact for the Bengals against the Colts in Indianapolis on Sunday.Joe MixonAccountability seems to be a trait that has grown on Mixon since he was drafted last year. The issues on the offensive line this preseason have not become excuses for Mixon.I have to pay more attention to the little things. Whether its my track or my eyes and read, Mixon said per Geoff Hobson. When they showed the cutups, man, theres a lot of yards out there. In Mixons time in Cincinnati, there admittedly hasnt been much room for him to operate with the ball in his hands. Were going to get our first real glimpse of how much push this offensive line can get against a young defensive front who let go of their best player in Jonathan Hankins this offseason. All Mixon needs is the slightest of creases and he can make something out of it; he has a great opportunity to do just that on Sunday.John RossLucas Oil Stadium was an unlucky venue for Ross in 2017. In March, he broke the scouting combine 40-yard dash record, but injured his shoulder in the process. The injury sidelined him for most of his offseason with the Bengals and it was finally healed when he returned to Indianapolis for Week 4 of the preseason several months later. In that game, he suffered a knee injury that sidelined him for the season opener.The Bengals later played the Colts in Week 8 of last season, and it ended up being the second of three games in which we saw Ross play. Ross At least itll be an exciting journey to find out.

     than that, Patricia said. ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Rick Forzano, who was the coach o

    ALLEN PARK T.J. Jones Jersey , Mich. (AP) Kenny Golladay is making quite an impression on his fellow receivers in Detroit.The second-year wideout had four catches for 98 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Lions 31-23 victory over Green Bay. He also had a touchdown called back because of a penalty.Golladay has given Detroit another strong receiving threat along with Golden Tate and Marvin Jones and at this point, its hard to tell who the defense should be most concerned with.Having Kenny play the way hes been playing since he came on the team has been huge. Hes opened it up for everybody, Tate said. Now we have a bunch of guys who can make plays.The Lions drafted Golladay in the third round last year out of Northern Illinois, and he got off to quite a start, catching two touchdown passes in his first game .However, he missed five games with hamstring issues and finished the season with only 28 catches.Still, the potential was there, and this year the 6-foot-4 Golladay has nearly matched that reception total already. He has 27 catches for 428 yards. On the Lions, only Tate is ahead of him in those categories.Hes killing it, Jones said. Hes doing a great job, and its fun to see.Golladay has been productive this season, and hes also been consistent. He caught seven passes for 114 yards in the season opener against the Jets and was one of the very few bright spots for Detroit in that loss. Hes had at least four receptions in all five games.The 5-foot-10 Tate is a dependable veteran who can excel after the catch. Both he and the 6-foot-2 Jones had more than 1,000 yards receiving last season. But its hard not to notice Golladays physical ability and wonder if Detroits passing game could be even better as he becomes a bigger part of it.Hes obviously a big kid, physical kid Kerry Hyder Jersey , can run, wants to be a really good player, quarterback Matthew Stafford said after the game against Green Bay.Smart, has dialogue with me. All of our guys do, really, which is great. What theyre seeing out there, what they think we can do so, Im just happy for our team to get a win. Obviously happy for Kenny. He had a good one.Golladays 46-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter was nullified by an illegal use of hands penalty on a Detroit lineman. Later that period, Stafford and Golladay connected again for a 60-yard gain that set up a touchdown.Golladay caught a 5-yard scoring pass in the fourth quarter that put the Lions up 31-14.Whenever my number is called, Im just trying to make the play, Golladay said. So if they want to throw it to me five times or four times a game or nine times a game, I just want to make all the plays.As he becomes more of an established target, Golladay may have to deal with more attention from opposing defenses. Thats a sign of respect, of course Zach Zenner Jersey , and Lions coach Matt Patricia likes what he sees so far.Theres a lot of different coverages that are coming his way, theres a lot of different fronts, doubles, bracket-type situations that hes running into. The great part about it is just his competitiveness overall, Patricia said.Doing the details, doing the little things the blocking. Maybe some of the plays where he may draw a little bit more attention and free somebody else up. Those are big responsibilities in the offense and kind of help everything fit together for all the guys on the field.NOTES: DE Ziggy Ansah, back with the Lions this season on the franchise tag, has missed the past four games with a shoulder injury. Patricia did not appreciate a question Monday about whether Ansahs contract status might be affecting his return to the field. The guys trying every single day to get back out there. So, thats what it is. Dont make it anything more than that, Patricia said. ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Rick Forzano, who was the coach of the Detroit Lions during the mid-1970s and hired a young Bill Belichick to work on his staff, has died. He was 90.The Lions said Thursday night that Forzanos family confirmed his death. He died Wednesday.Forzano coached the Lions for the 1974 and 1975 seasons, plus the first four games in 1976. He went 15-17.Rick was a wonderful man and we are truly saddened by the news of his passing Quandre Diggs Jersey , Lions owner Martha Firestone Ford said in a statement. On behalf of me, my family and the Lions organization, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the entire Forzano family.Forzano was also the head coach at Connecticut (1964-65) and Navy (1969-72).Forzanos staffs in Detroit included future NFL head coaches Raymond Berry, Joe Bugel and Jerry Glanville. After graduating from Wesleyan, Belichick was a special assistant with the Baltimore Colts in 1975. He then joined Forzanos staff with the Lions.Hes coaching guys that, hes younger than they are, Forzano said in 2017 for an NFL Films video about him and Belichick. But they just accepted him.Belichick was an assistant special teams coach for Detroit. He would also coach tight ends and receivers for the Lions before joining the Denver Broncos staff in 1978.Born in Akron, Ohio, Forzano graduated from Kent State in 1951. He coached high school for five years before a college coaching career that included stops as an assistant at Wooster (1956), Kent State (1957-58) and Navy (1959-63).In between his head coaching jobs at UConn and Navy, he was an NFL assistant with St. Louis and Cincinnati. He joined the Lions as an assistant in 1973 before becoming their head coach.

     Northwestern Wildcat to crack the roste

    Admit it: youve been reading mock drafts.Its ok! With the Packers (sadly) on the outside looking in as Championship Weekend rolls around Blake Martinez Jersey , the draft and free agency is about all weve got.Even though the 2019 NFL Draft is months away, its never too early to start perusing draft rankings and projecting your favorites. Were no different, and this week the APC staff is prepared to reveal who were crushing on as our attention turns to the offseason in earnest.What names are you watching?Peter Bukowski Jachai Polite, EDGE, Florida The RetireMoms movement comes to Titletown. With the Packers in desperate need of an athletic playmaker to rush the passer, enter the twitched up Florida underclassman who exploded onto the scene in 2018 with 11 sacks and 19.5 TFLs. He wont be for every team because of his size at 62 242, but his explosiveness, length, and bend shouldnt hamper his ability to get after the quarterback in the Mike Pettines defense. Heres a great example of why hes not small, as he can use his length and technique to discard blockers. If Polite can translate some of his playmaking he had six forced fumbles along with all those tackles behind the line I just dont care if hes a little light to play against the run. Run it all day if you want to, because on third down Polite is coming off the edge and chances are you cant block him. Hell likely be available right in the range of the Green Bays first pick, and at 20 years old, has plenty of room to get stronger and more advanced with his technique. Harold Landry was a draft crush for a lot of Packers fans last season and Polite compares favorably with the ex-Boston College star who played for Matt LaFleurs Titans last s

     Williams and Montgomery

    With the majority of new head coach Matt LaFleurs coaching staff in place Lane Taylor Jersey , its time to turn our attention to free agency where the Green Bay Packers should be active for the second consecutive year.The task ahead for general manager Brian Gutekunst is clear. The team needs an upgrade at several positions and with a decent amount of cap space to play with, Gutekunst can be a major player in March when free agency begins.The even better part of this is the free agent class contains names that could immediately solve some of Green Bays woes, particularly at edge rusher and safety. This also comes with the disclaimer that this is before franchise tags are doled out and potential new contracts with their current teams that may be in negotiation.Gutekunst still can like his odds. Landon Collins and Tyrann Mathieu at safety plus Ziggy Ansah and Anthony Barr (haters to the left please) would all immediately plug big holes on the roster.A lot can happen in the next two months, but the Packers are in as good of position as any to land a big name or two and Gutekunst has shown he is willing to dive into the market.You can read more on the pending free agent class plus the sun sets on an era for the Packers in todays cheese curds.Top free agents list littered with potential solutions for Packers biggest problemsPackers WireNot everyone will be available when the new league year begins but Green Bay should be a major player in free agency.Davante Adams misses Packers milestone more than bonus moneyESPNAdams would have made history and bank had he suited up for the regular season finale against the Detroit Lions but hes likely more upset at missing out on Sterling Sharpes record than the extra cash.Matt LaFleur taking a risk entrusting offensive line to young assistant coachPackersNews.comGreen Bay chose youth over experience in moving on from James Campen as offensive line coach. The risk by LaFleur could expose Rodgers to some big hits if Adam Stenavichs guys arent ready.Dan Orlich, last survivor of Lambeau years, dies at 94Packers.comThere are no more living players who played for Curly Lambeau. An era truly has come to an end. Snake in toilet bites woman on the buttUPIOw. Usually snakes go the other way down the toilet and usually in the hands of a plumber.The Takeaway, Bills vs. Packers: Mike Pettines defense dominates third down A trend emerged over the first three games of the Green Bay Packers 2018 season.While the overall numbers painted the picture of a team still largely unable to halt opponents with regularity, a closer look revealed that the Green Bay defense thrived on third down with 4 or more yards to go. Forcing those situations proved to be the challenge at times, but once there new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine could dial up exotic blitzes and consistently short-circuit drives.Against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Pettine and his defense put on a show on those third-down situations. The Packers forced third-and-4 or longer an impressive 13 times, eight of which resulted in a stop. That third-down defensive success largely won the game for Green Bay and, given the context of the previous three weeks, suggests meaningful progress for the unit after just one quarter of the season.But those numbers dont fully illustrate the Packers third-down dominance. All three of the Bills turnovers -- two interceptions and a fumble loss -- came on third down and at least 4 yards to go. Pettines exotic blitzes, particularly his affinity for rushing defensive backs, turned the defense into a play-making unit.And perhaps that explains why Aaron Rodgers referred to the defensive performance as championship level during his post-game press conference. During the Packers best defensive seasons under previous coordinator Dom Capers, the group finished near the top of the league in turnovers. Those takeaways hadnt totally evaporated in Green Bay over the past few years, but that production needs to improve in order to take the pressure off an offense that remains a work in progress. Forcing more long third downs seems like a reliable way to up those numbers.Ultimately, the Bills present one of the weaker challenges on Green Bays schedule, and that factors into any discussion of Sundays shutout. At the same time, a good defense should give up few if any points to an offense led by rookie quarterback Josh Allen and arguably the worst collection of offensive talent in the league, and the Packers pulled it off with minimal mistakes.Aaron Jones shows off more than just his running abilityMidway through Aaron Jones rookie season, it became clear that the UTEP product had the skills and physical tools to lead the Packers ground attack. Injuries derailed that effort, but even so, it seemed Jones would take over the backfield during his second season.Despite missing the first two games of 2018 with a suspension, Jones has once again emerged as a dangerous part of the Packers offense. In his season debut Blake Martinez Jersey , he led the team with 42 rushing yards on just six carries. Jones built upon that start with an 11-carry, 65-yard performance against the Bills, which also featured his first touchdown of the year. Already, he has moved ahead of Ty Montgomery in rushing yards on the year. At some point over the next week or so, Jones should eclipse Jamaal Williams as well.Since he entered the league, pass blocking has proven to be the biggest obstacle standing between Jones and a larger role. He finished third among the Packers running backs in snaps during Week 3, and he remained in a timeshare with Williams and Montgomery seven days later despite far superior production.However, the existing split could change in the near future. Against Buffalo, Jones showcased improved pass protection and willingness to take on difficult blocking assignments. The best demonstration came on third-and-1 with 8:26 remaining in regulation. With Rodgers back turned to the defense during a play fake, the second-year running back came up and de-cleated defensive end Trent Murphy, ensuring the necessary time for the play to develop. Such a wow moment would have seemed inconceivable a year ago, but Jones appears to have made a concerted effort to develop that part of his game.Blocks like that could encourage the coaches to increase Jones playing time in the future. He might never reach Williams proficiency as a pass protector, but Jones only needs to earn the trust of Rodgers and the staff to further tilt the backfield rotation in his favor.Aaron Rodgers wheels returnFrom the moment Rodgers returned from his Week 1 knee injury, it became evident that he lacked the mobility to extend plays and punish defenses with his legs. Though Rodgers did scramble at times against the Minnesota Vikings and Washington over the past two weeks, such plays made up a smaller percentage of his plays than usual.Though Rodgers knee probably remains significantly below 100 percent healthy, he looked more comfortable and mobile against the Bills Sunday than at any time since the injury. The veteran quarterback scrambled five times for 31 yards, including a 15-yard sideline scamper that set up a field goal just before halftime. Just as importantly, Rodgers looked fluid and comfortable moving around in the pocket, working outside the play design when necessary.Those developments, combined with the fact Rodgers practice workload increased this past week, suggest that the most dangerous version of the Packers quarterback could return soon barring a setback. The next two weeks feature matchups with the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers, two teams with middling-at-best pass rushes, followed by Green Bays bye. If Rodgers can safely navigate that stretch, he could look fully recovered in time for the all-important Week 8 tilt with the currently undefeated Los Angeles Rams.

     me with injured ribs and LT Trent Williams his thir

    LANDOVER Zach Cunningham Jersey , Md. (AP) Justin Reid intercepted the ball in the end zone and saw nothing but green grass in front of him.I saw the daylight and I have to hit it, Reid said. I wasnt going to let anyone stop me.No ones stopping the Houston Texans right now.Reids 101-yard interception return touchdown was the big play Houston needed to overcome a mistake-prone Deshaun Watson and beat the Washington Redskins 23-21 on Sunday, tying the franchise record with their seventh consecutive victory.From a gruesome , season-ending injury to Redskins quarterback Alex Smith to three turnovers, it wasnt pretty, but the Texans (7-3) became the first team since the 1925 New York Giants to win seven in a row after starting 0-3.With this team, you never know where the plays going to come from, defensive end J.J. Watt said. You never know whos going to make it offense, defense, special teams but youve got to find a way. For the seventh time, we found a way.While Watson was 16 of 24 for 208 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions, Smith broke his right tibia and fibula on a sack by Kareem Jackson midway through the third quarter and will require surgery. Smiths right leg turned the wrong way in eerily similar fashion to Joe Theismanns broken leg on a Lawrence Taylor sack exactly 33 years ago to the day.I know it was very painful for him and heartbreaking for a lot of people, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. Hes a great guy and hard worker and one of the key leaders on this football team. These things happen in pro football, unfortunately. Just hate to see them happen with a guy like Alex.Colt McCoy replaced Smith and threw for a touchdown pass and led a long scoring drive for Washington (6-4), which likely will have to rely on the journeyman quarterback the rest of the way. When a McCoy-led drive finished with an Adrian Peterson touchdown to put the Redskins up 21-20 early in the fourth quarter, it was the first lead change in a game involving the Redskins all season.You pray for opportunities to get to play, said McCoy DOnta Foreman Jersey , who was 6 of 12 for 54 yards. You dont like to see it how it happened today.Houston went ahead for good on a 54-yard field goal by Kaimi Fairbairn, who missed a 44-yarder earlier. The winning streak stayed alive when Redskins kicker Dustin Hopkins missed a 63-yard field-goal attempt with 3 seconds left.We just have belief, Watson said. Everyone keeps fighting. No one is doubting each other. Regardless, we try to play complementary football, but when the offense needs the defense to help us out, they do that and vice-versa.EMPTY SEATSEven though there were plenty of empty seats and a total attendance of 61,593 that was far below a sellout, Redskins cornerback Josh Norman called the crowd electrifying. Norman last week criticized fans for not having players backs at home and said the team plays better on the road.What an atmosphere, right? Norman said. You guys came out and you showed up in a big way. We cant be more proud and excited to be among you guys. I applaud you all, for sure.PETERSONS UP AND DOWN DAYPeterson ran for two touchdowns to continue climbing the NFL rushing chart, but was bottled up on a lot of his other carries. Petersons 3- and 7-yard TD runs gave him 105 in his career and moved him past former Redskins star John Riggins into sole possession of sixth all time, one behind Jim Brown for fifth.Peterson finished with 51 yards on 16 carries.QUIET THOMASIn his second game with the Texans, Demaryius Thomas was a non-factor. Watson only threw his way twice once on a play wiped out by a penalty and the former Broncos receiver did not have a catch.Thomas stayed in Houston during the bye week in Houston to study the playbook and watch film after making a handful of newcomer mistakes in his debut. Thomas had three catches for 61 yards in that game, but disappeared from the offense Sunday.MR. RELEVANTWashington receiver Trey Quinn made a major impact in his return after missing more than two months with a high-ankle sprain. Quinn, who was Mr. Irrelevant caught four passes for 49 yards starting in place of injured wideout Jamison Crowder and would have been the emergency QB had McCoy gone down.INJURIESTexans: RG Zach Fulton left with a shoulder injury on the first drive, and LG Senio Kelemete left with an ankle injury in the second quarter. CB Aaron Colvin missed his seventh game in a row with an ankle injury.Redskins: DL Jonathan Allen was evaluated for a concussion but returned. Crowder missed his sixth consecutive game with an ankle injury, RB Chris Thompson his third consecutive game with injured ribs and LT Trent Williams his third consecutive game after surgery for a dislocated right thumb.UP NEXTTexans: Host the division rival Tennessee Titans on Monday, Nov. 26.Redskins: Visit the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. Hell yeah. I cant wait for this one. I got some pink flamingos in the front yard Julién Davenport Jersey , a garish teal flower shirt, Ive cut the legs off my blue jeans, theres a baby pool in my living room, and Im drinking Bud Heavies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, if I can make it to dinner. Finally theres an AFC South game that really matters. This is the only joy I have for Bill OBrien masquerading behind his win loss record again. We get a Texans-Jaguars game that matters. Both teams are 3-3. Hopefully this is a prelude to an eventual week 17 AFC South title game between Houston and Jacksonville. The Titans cant even get in the way of this imaginary championship game that only exists in my head. Its going to rain all weekend. Its flooding down in Texas. So Ill be home. I may screw around and make a giant pot of chili. I dont know. Ill be hanging around with the dogs and myself watching Deshaun Watson and Blake Bortles run for their lives and the semi-annual Jalen Ramsey DeAndre Hopkins wild west showdown. Anyways, those are my plans. What about you? What do you have going on? Are you going to get sun burned in Jacksonville and scratch watching a Jags game in their giant peepee pool off your bucket list? Will you be hanging out, going out, or watching the game from the couch? Are you too afraid to have the lights off during this sp0000ky time of year? Whatever your plans, let us know in the Comments. If youre still trying to figure out what youre going to do, or if youll be a stranger in a strange land looking for somewhere to catch the game, pose any queries here; someone might have a suggestion for you. Similarly, if youve got a worthy spot staked out somewhere and want to clue fellow Texans fans in to it, please divulge that information in the Comments as well.

    Joe Mixon exits Bengals vs. Ravens Thursday Night Football game for second time The Cincinnati Bengals are holding their breath after Joe Mixon was sent to the locker room for the second time in Thursday nights game against the Baltimore Ravens.His first injury happened midway through the first quarter Alex Erickson Jersey , as Mixon was seen heading to the locker room as Cincinnati went on the field for its third offensive possession.The team announced Mixon was probable to return with a knee injury. While Mixon was out for the possession, Giovani Bernard was the main running back, but the Bengals passing game carried the offense down the field before A.J. Green reached the end zone to put Cincinnati up 14-0. Then in the third quarter, Mixon exited the game again and was questionable to return, again with a knee injury. This is not good news for the Bengals running back. Bernard is the lead back with Mixon out.Update: Mixon returned again in the fourth quarter, but was clearly hurting.Bengals vs. Ravens inactives: Preston Brown out; Malik Jefferson in The Bengals and Ravens have announced their inactive player lists for Week 2 William Jackson Jersey , and Preston Brown will not be suiting up due to his lingering ankle injury. Thats sad news for the Cincinnati native in what should have been his first game at Paul Brown Stadium as a member of the team.Here is a look at the Bengals inactives for Thursday Night Football: WR Cody CoreOL Cedric OgbuehiWR Auden TateDT Josh TupouLB Preston BrownOL Christian WestermanRB Mark WaltonThe big question mark tonight was Brown, who was questionable with his ankle injury. He was limited in practice this week, so the expectation was he would play tonight, but he ended up being inactive. With Brown out, rookie third-round pick Malik Jefferson is active after being a healthy scratch last week. However, its Hardy Nickerson who will be starting in Browns middle linebacker spot. Expect to see Vincent Rey play a good amount of snaps too. Other than that Trey Hopkins Jersey , the rest of the inactives were expected, including Cody Core, who was doubtful to play with a back injury. Look for him to be healthy enough to play in Week 3 now that hell have some extra time off before the Bengals next gameOn the other side, here are a look at the inactive players for the RavensT Willie HenryTE Hayden HurstQB Robert Griffin IIIWR Jordan LasleyOL Jermaine EluemunorDT Zach SielerCB Maurice CanadyWe pretty much knew all of the Ravens inactives for this game, as three players had already been ruled out due to injury, including first-round pick Hayden Hurst. The Bengals struggle with tight ends Clayton Fejedelem Jersey , so Hurst could have been a real problem had he been active, especially with Brown out tonight. Hes expected to miss a few more weeks, too.

     McAdoo coaching the Giants, which, I still dont know how that happened. They all so

    ALLEN PARK Darius Slay Jersey , Mich. (AP) The Detroit Lions have released running back Ameer Abdullah, cutting ties with their seldom-used, second-round pick from the 2015 draft.Detroit also signed running back Zach Zenner and receiver Bruce Ellington on Tuesday.Abdullah had one carry, two catches and returned four kickoffs in three games this year. Abdullah had 1,251 yards rushing and six touchdowns along with had 57 receptions for 420 yards in his career. Detroit waived Zenner from the reserve-injured list nearly two months ago after he hurt his back in the preseason finale. He had 420 yards rushing and five touchdowns over three seasons with the Lions.Ellington had eight receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown in three games this season with the Houston Texans.Embarrassing What happened on Monday night in Detroit was inexcusable on every front.It was a disaster in waiting, one everyone was able to wave away due to various factors we assume in the sport of football. Preseason, jitters, a hidden playbook. All was taken for granted and things would be groovy on Sept. 10. No. This was the global warming of the Detroit Lions. 48-17 Jets over the Lions Marvin Jones Jersey , and youd think maybe there was a breakdown on one side of the ball. No sir. This was a meltdown in every element.Would you believe this game was tied at some point? I wouldnt.If you read the site or listen to the PODcast, you know me. Im supposed to be the joke man. Im the adequate host. In 5 Questions, Im a loon, Im supposed to be the guy who just kinda throws spitballs. These are roles I quite like, for various, sometimes personal, reasons!But after Monday night, I dont know where you find the spin on this.Jim Caldwell was fired for this. I get reasons why you might not like the pedigree of Caldwells background Kerryon Johnson Jersey , but if youre here to argue about why the results he put out were enough to replace him I dont want to hear it. A Caldwell-led Lions squad would have never looked like this. Yes, they looked better when they got stomped by the Cardinals even. I would put money on it, and I happen to owe quite a bit in student loans right now too!There have been some truly questionable coaches walking NFL sidelines in the past decade. We had Ben McAdoo coaching the Giants, which, I still dont know how that happened. They all somehow got their teams to look more prepared for the season than the Lions were under Matt Patricia.Patricia comes from that vaunted Patriots coaching treethe same one thats produced Charlie Weis, Romeo Crennel and Eric Mangini. You can go look up what those men accomplished and well talk again.All talk of Matthew Stafford as a top-ten quarterback? Thats over for the time being. Put it back in the jar, folks, theres no reason to even argue about this. What we saw last night looked Frank Ragnow Jersey , to my admittedly layman-eyes, like all progress of the past five seasons had been reversed.Where do you want to put the defense here? Where do you even start? You know how we used to ask if the University of Alabama could beat the Jacksonville Jaguars? Its time to start playing that game with the Lions. I would take the Crimson Tide and lay three pointssix if Darius Slay isnt playing. Once again, I have student loan payments to make.Establish the run? My God man, once more this team averaged 2.4 yards per attempt. Can someone fix this vinyl record?Injuries, man. Injuries. I know every time a professional football team takes the field you expect a butchers bill in some form or another, but the Lions seem destined to throw a five-course state feast. Is there something thats being done wrong? Can there be? Can this be fixed? I dont want to get all the Kings men.Im not going to say those three words. Some people are saying them, some people desperately want to. This team was looking like it could go places. Instead of finding the coach to take them to the next level, the Lions appear to have jumped off their wagon as they were crossing the Columbia. I dont have the time or the patience for finding the measured side of this. Lions fans who dont want to be Jarrad Davis Jersey , you are allowed to be too! You were sold a bill of goods that this Lions team wasnt going to be this. Maybe the Jets will be good. Maybe Sam Darnold will be the next great quarterback, bring New York to hallowed grounds. But all that said, Darnold was irrelevant shortly after the second quarter. He didnt need to do anything. The Lions just shot themselves in the foot, over and over, until it was all over.Thats what stinks.May next week bring a little more clarity, but be careful what that shape might take.

Lang (concussion) and tight end Michael Roberts (knee).Adams (28 receptions, 285 yards, three touchdowns), Allison (19 catches, 289 yards Bryan Bulaga Jersey , two touchdowns) and Cobb (17 catches, 194 yards, one touchdown) represent 62.1 percent of the completions, 64.8 percent of the receiving yards and 85.7 percent of the passing touchdowns for Green Bay through the first four games."This is an important day," coach Mike McCarthy said about Friday, a recovery-and-rehabilitation day under the team's weekly format. "Usually by the end of today you have a pretty good idea how it's going to shake out. Injuries are a part of the game. You have to be able to play through injuries in games, play through injuries in practice, play through injuries that you're able to prepare for.

This is a pretty big deal Rodgers has not practiced (aside from the teams brief Saturday practices) since suffering his knee injury against the Bears. With him back on the field, the coaching staff seems excited, and it will hopefully help the offense move the ball a bit more effectively on Sunday with better preparation.A few hours after Rodgers left the field, the Minnesota Vikings stepped onto it for a Thursday night game against the NFC favorite Rams. With those two defenses looking impressive on paper, did anybody expect a game with 69 total points (nice), 887 combined passing yards for the two quarterbacks David Bakhtiari Jersey , five receivers over 100 yards, and eight passing touchdowns? It was quite the offensive explosion, and Packers fans have to feel good seeing Minnesota lose the game.In todays curds, we also look at a Packers player who is making waves on special teams, even as he has yet to carve out a significant role on special teams.

Ryan Griffin cant block or do much more than run into the flat for four yards on 3rd and 7. Stephen Anderson is a big target but also cant block; he has been a disappointment in the red zone. Jordan Akins is a 26 year old rookie. Jordan Thomas is big and runs fast in a straight line Lamar Miller Jersey , but he didnt produce a ton at Mississippi State. The rest of the roster is a bunch of guys trying out before one day auditioning for The Bachelorette they will use their little bit of roster time to gain more Instagram followers so they can become a lifestyle account. So the news that the Texans were in the market for a tight end isnt surprising. It wouldnt be surprising even if the Texans had a competent tight end. The Texans were reportedly one of four teams in trade talks for one of the greatest tight ends of all time, Rob Gronkowski, with the Patriots. Houston Arian Foster Jersey , Tennessee, Detroit, and San Francisco all discussed trying to obtain the tight end Andre Johnson Jersey , according to Albert Breer. The idea here is that trade talks happened because Gronk unhappy because GRONK WANT NEW CONTRACT. Now the Patriots and Gronk are expected to hammer out an extension this summer during training camp. He and Bill Belichick talked things out, so the tight end will stay in New England this season. How far these trade talks went or what New England wanted in return is unknown. Nothing happened. Maybe in the future this little New England connection can lead to more trades between Houston and New England.After all, theyve consummated blockbuster deals before.If you want to read more Jose Altuve Jersey , you can go to Pro Football Rumors and follow the links they provide.
