Three offseason priorities for Denver Broncos

cheap jerseys Aside from DeMarcus Ware’s retirement and the departures of Malik Jackson and Sylvester Williams, few pieces have shifted on the Broncos’ defense since its historic 2015 season. That Denver unit led the league in yards allowed per game (283.1) and allowed a combined 44 points in the postseason to teams quarterbacked by Ben Roethlisberger, Tom Brady and league MVP Cam Newton. It also carried though the playoffs and into the history books a tired offense weighed down by an aging Peyton Manning. What has changed on the Broncos since that unforgettable February day is, well, everything else. Manning gave way to Trevor Siemian and rookie Paxton Lynch last season. Coach Gary Kubiak retired and was replaced by former Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph. Ex-Chargers skipper Mike McCoy returned as offensive coordinator, while former defensive coordinator Wade Phillips left to coach in the same capacity for the Rams. Joseph…

Lance Moore signs with Atlanta Falcons

cheap jerseys online Dan Quinn’s “Dirty Birds” are torching the NFL with an offense that features a red-hot quarterback, a dynamic 1-2 punch at running back and a premier WR1 who is just about unstoppable on the perimeter. Plus, the Falcons have assembled an offensive line that’s beginning to own the line of scrimmage while providing plenty of protection for Matt Ryan to direct an explosive aerial attack that’s creating problems for defensive coordinators. Skeptics might doubt the Falcons’ nice start after watching the team jump out to 5-0 in 2015 before stumbling to the finish line with a .500 record. But this year is different. The Falcons are a more balanced unit, and their diverse attack makes them a nightmare matchup, particularly when they are taking care of the ball. Taken No. 17 overall last Thursday, the 20-year-old Florida product boasts NFL size and supreme athleticism. A big hitter…

Defense propels Buccaneers into playoff position

nba jerseys cheap “This is obviously very disappointing for me personally,” Jackson said in a statement released by the team. “I had high hopes for this season because I know what we are capable of accomplishing as a team. My top priority going into every season is being out there with my teammates and helping my team any way possible. While I may not be on the field for the foreseeable future, I will be focused on beginning my rehab as soon as possible and finding ways to support my teammates in whatever way I can.” Dirk Koetter’s offense is already without running backs Doug Martin and Charles Sims and wideout Cecil Shorts, whose injuries have contributed mightily to Jameis Winston’s sophomore slump and the Bucs’ overall offensive malaise. The loss of Winston’s fourth-favorite receiving target won’t derail their season, but certainly doesn’t help him right Tampa’s sinking ship. This…

A diary from the Rams’ return to Los Angeles

nfl jerseys cheap The scene made me think back to All or Nothing with the Cardinals. You think Bruce Arians would have found this funny? If John Brown and Michael Floyd flipped their moped, something tells me they’d never see it again. “The b—- is mine now,” Brucie may say. (Get well soon, Coach.) Jared Goff is a total Cali kid. He reminds me a lot of Mark Sanchez (another Cali kid) during his star turn on the Jets’ Hard Knocks season in 2010. Young, cocky, likable and a little bit goofy. Speaking of goofy, defensive tackle William Hayes doesn’t believe in dinosaurs and is confident mermaids exist. We’ll get into that in a bit. “Gurley could be the No. 1 pick in most fantasy drafts, and I’m not sure anyone in Chicago, Philadelphia, New York has ever seen an interview with him,” Rodgers said. “Donald is a great defensive…

Baalke on 49ers’ struggles: ‘Strictly on my shoulders’

nfl jerseys cheap The 49ers hold the No. 7 overall pick, and Jack figures to be tough to pass on if he’s available when they’re on the clock. All four NFL Media analysts that have posted top-50 rankings place Jack among the top three prospects in the draft. He goes as high as No. 4 overall to the Cowboys and as low as No. 10 to the Giants in NFL Media mock drafts. Jack suffered a season-ending right knee injury during practice in September and underwent surgery on the knee. He received medical clearance from UCLA’s surgeon in early March and cheap nfl jerseys and participated in UCLA’s pro day on March 15, where he posted an impressive 40-inch vertical, even though he said he was only at 80 percent for the workout. However, he’s unlikely to run a 40-yard dash for NFL teams before the April 28-30 draft. Jack’s…

The Dome Patrol: Four men who revived the New Orleans Saints

nfl jerseys cheap The Falcons keep throwing past-their-prime solutions at their pass-rushing dilemma (read: Dwight Freeney), but there’s a glimmer of hope tonight with Saints starting left tackle Terron Armstead out for the game with a knee injury. If the Falcons can’t disrupt Brees, it only heaps more pressure on uber-talented cornerback Desmond Trufant to isolate and shut down the New Orleans air attack. Not easy in the lathered-up Superdome, where Brees and cheap jerseys and friends have scored 8.9 more points per game, chalked up 50-plus more yards and been nearly 8 percentage points better on third down at home than on the road. The Falcons’ defense has yet to evolve into the Seahawks-esque whirlwind fans were promised when Dan Quinn arrived from Seattle. To be fair, the coach didn’t inherit much, but it feels like Atlanta hasn’t been able to rush the passer in a thousand eons. Vic…

Jimmy Garoppolo leads Patriots to upset over Cardinals

nfl jerseys cheap Any great quarterback — any great player, for that matter — will say success begins in the classroom. Since coming off the board as a second-round pick in 2014, Jimmy has been learning behind one of the best to ever play this game — an ideal situation for any young quarterback. He’s had two full seasons to learn the playbook, so he should be well-prepared heading into this season. From experience, I know Tom puts pressure on everyone around him to be better in every aspect of the game. When I played with Tom, he never took a day off and was always doing more strength and conditioning exercises than required. When it came to the film room, Tom was (and still is) always trying to understand the opposing defense better than the guys who play in it. Jimmy has watched Tom work and learned what it takes…
