|-- mostly based on stretching with bands, eating lots of vegetables, drinking lots of water, getting lots of sleep and, most of all, achieving peak "pliability." They did have a problem with what Brady and Guerrero promised the TB12 Method could do. They claimed it could absolve football of responsibility for injury: "When athletes get injured, they shouldn't blame their sport," Brady wrote. The method also was so consuming and unwavering in its rules and convictions that, while it helped some players, it felt "like a cult" to others, one Patriots staffer says. The way TB12 began to creep into Brady's life worried people close to the QB, many of whom were suspicious of Guerrero. "Tom changed," says a friend of Brady's. "That's where a lot of these problems started." Brady and Guerrero's training http://www.mavericksteamonline.com/Devin_Harris_Jersey beliefs introduced an unspoken pressure in the building, with players wondering where they should work out. In August, receiver Julian Edelman blew out his knee, costing him the season, and there was "hypersensitivity" among players, in the words of a Patriots coach, over who would take his place. New players felt the surest way to earn Brady's trust was to join Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola and others by seeking advice from Guerrero at his TB12 clinic -- and not team doctors, which Belichick preferred. Guerrero says he wasn't pressuring players to adopt his approach. "Players have always decided to come or not come on their own," Eric Tomlinson Jersey he says now. But according to multiple sources, players openly discussed with Patriots coaches, staff and trusted advisers whether to follow Brady or the team, Authentic Gary Zimmerman Jersey leaving them trapped: Do we risk alienating the NFL's most powerful coach or risk alienating the NFL's most powerful quarterback? EARLY THIS SEASON, Belichick wanted to discuss all these issues with Brady.Guerrero had been around the team for years, mostly as an unthreatening outsider who worked with former linebacker Willie McGinest and, starting in 2004, Brady. On the author page in his 2004 book, "In Balance for Life," Guerrero says he received a degree in traditional Chinese medicine from the now-closed Samra University of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles, and later opened a sports injury, rehabilitation and performance-enhancement center, also in Los Angeles. In 2013, Belichick had welcomed Guerrero into the New England fold, giving him free rein in the building and, sources with direct knowledge of the situation say, access to meetings in which medical records for Patriots players were discussed (Guerrero denies ever having seen any records). The coach figured that, because Guerrero had Brady's best interests in mind, he probably had the Patriots' best interests in mind too, and could be trusted. But http://www.officialmarinershop.com/Drew_Smyly_Jersey Guerrero often would blame Patriots trainers for injuries, while offering few insightful opinions of his own, and Belichick quickly realized inviting him had been a mistake. And so in 2014, he eliminated Guerrero's access to those meetings while keeping him on as a team consultant. That was the same year Brady and Guerrero decided to market their business as revolutionary; the same year that Brady began to speak unwaveringly about playing into his mid-40s; and the same year that Belichick drafted Jimmy Garoppolo out of Eastern Illinois -- the first sign that Belichick was invested in a future that did not include the quarterback who had changed his life and legacy. It was also the same year that the Patriots would go on a run toward their fourth Super Bowl win, altering the team dynamic in fundamental ways that would come to a head this fall. During their 10-year championship drought, Brady and Belichick had come up just short together and could only dive back into the redemptive power of work, trying to slim the margins between defeat and victory. In beating the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, the two men drew strength from different touchstones. Belichick found virtue in his idea of the Patriot Way -- the demanding, football-first culture with an emotionless pursuit of victory -- and Brady found virtue in his Method, which he believed helped him thwart the inevitability of time, reinforcing his belief that he was still not on the downside of his career and deserving of a new contract. In 2016, Kraft and Brady's agent, Don Yee, began negotiating a new deal; Belichick and other Patriots staff had to abruptly leave the NFL combine in Indianapolis to be part of the process. Brady's two-year contract, with a $28 million signing bonus, was designed to set up 2018 as a key year, when the team could, in theory, look at a 41-year-old Brady and his $22 million cap hit and decide if it made sense to transition to Garoppolo. A year later, after another Super Bowl win -- the Brady-led, historic comeback from 28-3 to defeat the Atlanta Falcons -- Brady's stature in the organization had grown to the point that he was considered management. New players often address him as "sir." As Brady gained power, so did Guerrero, who became an even more divisive force in the building. One player visited TB12 under what he perceived as pressure, and declined to allow Guerrero to massage his injured legs. Instead he asked to keep treatment limited to only his arm, out of fear that one of Guerrero's famous deep-force muscle treatments would set back his recovery. The Boston Sports Journal would report on another player who was told by Patriots trainers to do squats but later instructed by Guerrero to not do them. Brady would tell teammates, "Bill's answer to everything is to lift more weights" -- a claim that many staffers and players felt was unfair, given the team's dedication to soft-tissue science and a healthy diet. cheap nfl jerseys from china mlb jerseys wholesale wholesale nfl jerseys china cheap nfl jerseys paypal|

|THE PROBLEM WITH living your life under the spotlight is that the camera captures only the public eruption, not the months of silent anger. On Dec. 3, when the New England Patriots played the Buffalo Bills, Tom Brady walked to the sideline after throwing late and behind receiver Brandin Cooks on third down, ending a first-quarter drive. Brady was angrier and more irritable than usual, as has often been the case this season in the eyes of some Patriots players and staff. As he unsnapped his chinstrap, Brady passed offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels on the sideline.
Brady kept walking, and glaring at McDaniels, so the coach repeated: "We had him open." Brady snapped, pivoting to McDaniels and yelling at him, "I Harrison Barnes Authentic Jersey got it!" Everyone within earshot, including head coach Bill Belichick, turned to watch as Brady screamed. He removed his helmet, and as a Patriots staffer held him back -- and with McDaniels' father and legendary high school coach in Ohio, Thom, in the stands behind the bench -- capped off the exchange by yelling, "F--- you!"
Video of the scene went viral, with many rationalizing it as a symptom of Brady's legendary competitiveness. Brady would later apologize to McDaniels, who dismissed the incident to reporters as "part of what makes him great." After all, many in the Patriots' building knew that Brady's explosion wasn't really about McDaniels. It wasn't about Cooks. And it wasn't about the Bills game. It was about the culmination of months of significant behind-the-scenes frustrations. For almost two decades, Belichick has managed to subvert the egos of his best player, his boss and himself for the good of the team, yielding historic results. This year, though, the dynamics have been different.
THE PATRIOTS ARE in uncharted territory. They haven't just won games and titles. They've won at an unprecedented rate and over an unprecedented span, which makes the feelings of entitlement creeping inside Gillette Stadium unprecedented as well. The Patriots, in the only statement anyone associated with the team would make on the record for this story, responded to specific questions by saying that there are
"several inaccuracies and multiple examples given that absolutely did not occur," though they declined to go into detail. But according to interviews with more than a dozen New England staffers, executives, players and league sources with knowledge of the team's inner workings, the three most powerful people in the franchise -- Belichick, Brady and owner Robert Kraft -- have had serious disagreements.
They differ on Brady's trainer, body coach and business partner Alex Guerrero; over the team's long-term plans at quarterback; over Belichick's bracing coaching style; and most of all, over who will be the last man standing. Those interviewed describe a palpable sense in the building that this might be the last year together for this group.
Brady, Belichick and Kraft have raised expectations and possibilities so high that virtually no other team in the Super Bowl era could truly comprehend what it's like to be them. Brady and Belichick weren't only pushing the boundaries of what a team could accomplish. They also were challenging basic understandings of how a group of high achievers escape the usual pulls of ego and pride. For 17 years, the Patriots have withstood everything the NFL and opponents could throw their way, knowing that if they were united, nobody could touch them. Now they're threatening to come undone the only way possible: from within.
THE CRACKS FIRST revealed themselves in early September. The season had just started, and Guerrero was once again becoming an issue in the Patriots' building, just weeks before the release of Brady's first real book, "The TB12 Method." It was more than a fitness and diet guide. For Brady, a self-described "loner" who always seemed most comfortable surrounded by family or on a football field, the book represented a move to extend his brand beyond the game -- and beyond the Patriots. Until a few years ago, he seemed uninterested in ever doing so, content to be a father and husband and son and http://www.officialfootballauthentics.com/indianapolis_colts-c-34_433.html brother and transcendent quarterback, knowing there wasn't time for much else.
Guerrero persuaded Brady to find time. The two http://www.cardinalsofficialnflauthenticonline.com/cardinals+andre+ellington+jersey men had worked together for years, with Guerrero having found a spot in Brady's famously small group of advisers, eventually becoming a godfather to one of his sons.
Guerrero has a history of controversial methods -- in 2005, he paid a judgment to the Federal Trade Commission to settle allegations that he had claimed dietary supplements could help cure cancer -- and he believed he had discovered a way to revolutionize how athletes train. In his book and in the Archie Bradley Jersey building, Brady was offering opinions not only on training but also on lifestyle, writing that he envisioned a world populated with TB12 Sports Therapy Center franchises.
|add to favorites||The Titans' route to beating the Chiefs||Pc||
|lies with the playmaking ability of Marcus Mariota and Derrick Henry. Mariota's legs are the wild card in this matchup for a Titans offense that took a big step backward in 2017, finishing 23rd overall. Tennessee beat Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium in December 2016 and they're confident they can do it again. I'll believe it when I see it. Chiefs 25, Titans 20 -- Cameron Wolfe
All teams are better when they win the turnover battle, but few depend on winning that part of the game like the Chiefs. They were 9-1 this season when they were ahead in turnover differential and 1-5 when they were http://www.officialcoyotesonline.com/Niklas_Hjalmarsson_Jersey even or negative. They also were 6-1 in games against teams that finished in the bottom 10 in turnovers. The Titans, with Mariota among the league leaders in interceptions, finished in that bottom 10. It’s not hard to picture a Marcus Peters interception making the difference in this game. Chiefs 23, Titans 17 -- Adam Teicher
The Falcons are a lot healthier than anticipated, according to coach Dan Quinn, with running back Devonta Freeman recovering quickly from a knee injury, Cody Whitehair Youth jersey wide receiver Julio Jones much better off ankle and rib injuries, and return man Andre Roberts running well off ankle/knee injuries. All of that is Donnel Pumphrey Authentic Jersey good news for the offense, with Jones being that big-play threat, Freeman serving as another outlet in the
passing game when Matt Ryan gets rushed, and Roberts setting up good field position with big returns. The Falcons haven't put their best game together yet this season, but one would figure the offense will fare better than the combined 2-for-9 in red zone opportunities over the past two games. Last year's Super Bowl implosion should be motivation going into this postseason. And this offense is capable of exploding anytime, even on the road against an Aaron Donald-led defense. It comes down to Matt Bryant's foot, though. Falcons 31, Rams 28 -- Vaughn McClure
For those wondering whether the Rams will be rusty after resting most of their starters Sunday, look no further than what they did after their bye week, when they beat the New York Giants 51-17 on the road. Granted, the Falcons are a much better team. But the Rams' front seven should have its way against the Falcons' beat-up offensive line and make life difficult on an immobile Matt Ryan.
I worry about how the Rams match up with two big, physical receivers in Julio Jones and http://www.goldenstatewarriorsauthentic.com/Womens-Stephen-Curry-Jersey Mohamed http://www.texansfootballsprostore.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_DJ_READER_JERSEY.html Sanu. And I worry about the Rams' kicker, Sam Ficken, an undrafted free agent from 2015 who hadn't kicked in a regular-season game until two weeks ago. Greg Zuerlein's season-ending injury may eventually catch up to the Rams, but not in this round. They're rested, they're at home, and frankly, they're better. Rams 31, Falcons 24 -- Alden Gonzalez
The Bills have been able to cover up their 29th-ranked run defense this season when they have been able to force turnovers, and Blake Bortles presents the best opportunity for Buffalo to pull off an upset. Bortles is 8-0 this season when he does not throw an interception but 2-6 when he Aaron Colvin Jersey does. The Bills are 8-3 when they force at least one interception and 5-1 when they force at least two. The Bills have three defenders -- safeties Jordan Poyer (5) and Micah Hyde (5), as well as cornerback Tre'Davious White (4) -- in the top 12 in interceptions this season, and if those players come up big, the Bills can steal a possession and win a low-scoring game. Bills 16, Jaguars 13 -- Mike Rodak
This is the time of year the Jaguars drafted Leonard Fournette for, and they're going to ride the rookie running back pretty hard against the Bills, which makes sense because the Bills' rushing defense ranks Authentic Phil Simms Jersey 29th in the NFL (124.6 yards per game). Fournette, who is just the second rookie in franchise history to rush for more than 1,000 yards, said he's ready for a heavy workload. His career high in carries is 28, and it wouldn't be a surprise if he approached that number Sunday. The Jaguars' defense has been much better against the run since the addition of Marcell Dareus, and with the iffy status of LeSean McCoy, the Jaguars are going to make the Bills put the game on Tyrod Taylor's shoulders. Jaguars 24, Bills 14 -- Michael DiRocco
The two regular-season meetings between these two, both Saints wins, came down to a few big plays that turned things in the favor of New Orleans. Cam Newton didn't play particularly well, either. The Panthers will eliminate many of those errors, but the Saints and Drew Brees are still too good at home. Brees' ability to get rid of the ball before the Carolina pass rush can have an impact is the key. The Panthers have gotten to him only three times in two games. Not much for a team that averaged 3.3 sacks in its other 14 games. Saints 24, Panthers 21 -- David Newton
The Saints know the formula for beating the Panthers after winning by double digits in each of their first two meetings: containing Cam Newton and running for nearly 150 yards both times. But both of those things are a lot easier said than done. No other team rushed for more than 120 yards against Carolina’s loaded front seven this year. And now Newton has tight end Greg Olsen back, while the Saints have lost linebacker A.J. Klein and safety http://www.authenticthunderstores.com/authentic-54-patrick-patterson-jersey.html Kenny Vaccaro to injured reserve. (On the flip side: They’ll have breakout star CB Marshon Lattimore back after he missed the first two games against Carolina.) Ultimately, the Saints’ loaded offense is still the biggest game-changer, and the Panthers haven’t shown that they can stop Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara, Brees and Michael Thomas. Saints 29, Panthers 23 -- Mike Triplett

|add to favorites||e was five years into his professional career||Pc||
|, playing against http://www.buccaneersshopnfljersey.com/Vernon-Hargreaves-Iii-Jersey a 73-win Warriors team that had dispatched the Cavaliers one year earlier. He shot poorly early in the series, absorbing criticism that he was shrinking in the moment. But not on June 19, 2016. It was Game 7 and a tie score with 53 seconds remaining. After an inbounds pass from LeBron, Kyrie held the ball, dribbling six times toward the right wing, where JR Smith set a screen on Klay Thompson, a stout defensive player, and that forced the smaller Steph Curry to switch onto Irving. Irving hesitated for a second, then stepped back and lofted a 3-pointer over the outstretched arms of the league's reigning MVP, a shot Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert later declared "the most important possession of our lives." It swished, and Cleveland's long, painful championship drought was history. Irving finished with 26 points and six rebounds. LeBron submitted a Keith Hernandez Womens Jersey triple-double and was named Finals MVP. The two embraced at midcourt, the cornerstones of Cleveland's future. Nineteen months later, Irving is in Boston and rumors are swirling that James could soon leave Cleveland too. LeBron cornered the NBA notion that athletes should dictate their own destinies; Irving ripped that page out of James' book and implemented it accordingly. Together, over three years, the duo played in two All-Star Games and three Finals. They weren't particularly close, nor were they openly at odds. Teammates say LeBron's habit of referring to Irving as "the kid" and his "little brother" was eventually viewed by Irving as a subtle lack of respect. Another player, advised by the Cavaliers not to discuss Irving publicly, noted that LeBron also predicted Irving would be an MVP one day. Today, when http://www.officialpittsburghpenguins.com/Adidas-Sidney-Crosby-Jersey asked if he feels that James viewed him as a basketball equal, Irving answers, "I don't know if he did or not, but I don't really care. I didn't lose any sleep over it." Those close to Irving insist his leaving wasn't all about LeBron, and not one of them was surprised that Irving asked to move on from Cleveland. In 2015, Irving was named third-team All-NBA and had a right to believe it could be a recurring http://www.officialbluesauthentic.com/authentic-29-vince-dunn-jersey.html phenomenon. Instead, Damian Lillard, Thompson and Kyle Lowry were chosen ahead of him in 2016. Last season, it was Isaiah Thomas, John Wall and DeMar DeRozan."[Playing with LeBron] has its positives,'' Irving says, "and it also comes with responsibilities. It was clear to me that we needed each other." Irving was the point guard in name, but LeBron often assumed his role as a ball-dominant point-forward in crucial situations. It produced results. The team averaged 54 wins and went to three straight Finals in their three seasons together. But Irving's teammates say there were times Kyrie felt marginalized -- despite the fact that over the three years, he averaged nearly the same usage rate without LeBron (29 percent) as he did with him (28.6). "Ky wasn't as happy last year," says one of his former teammates who talks with Irving regularly. "He wasn't disruptive -- just a little disconnected." "Happiness comes and goes in the NBA," Cavs veteran Channing Frye says. "Kyrie had every right to do what he wanted." "I saw Kyrie high, I saw him low," Iman Shumpert says. "He's seen me tear up a locker room. We're friends. You help each other through it.'' During a rare practice in the middle of last season, coach Tyronn Lue, who was standing next to assistant coach and Irving confidant Phil Handy, called out to his young point guard. "Ky," Lue said, "I want you to play a little faster." "Why?" Irving asked. "Because if we play faster, we Authentic Red Schoendienst Jersey get shots off easier." "I don't need to play faster to get my shot off," Irving replied. "I can do that anytime." "I'm not talking about your shot. I'm talking about RJ and JR," Lue said, citing teammates Richard Jefferson and Smith. "Well, that's No. 23's job," Irving replied, referring to James. According to members of the Cavs organization who witnessed the exchange, Lue ended the conversation by walking away, shaking his head. Both Lue and Handy, whom Irving affectionately calls his "OG," Cliff Avril Authentic Jersey confirmed the incident but declined to elaborate. "Kyrie is a great player," Lue says. "Please tell him I wish him the best."Irving, for his part, laments the fact that his conversation with Lue ended without a resolution. "At that time, we had probably lost Authentic Kevin Pamphile Jersey a few [games]," Irving says now. "[Lue] is coming up to me and saying, 'We've got to play faster,' and I probably wasn't willing to accept it at the time. So maybe I'd like a do-over on that. "But those conversations go on every day in the NBA. In this case, instead of those things being addressed so you can move forward, it gets held on to, and it becomes a big thing. I was trying to figure out where I fit in and at the same time asking myself, 'What's best for the team?' Sometimes, I didn't know the answer. I had to figure it out on my own. It wasn't like I was getting answers from everyone else." When the 2016-17 season ended, Irving was making millions. He had his own shoe campaign. He'd been to the Finals again. Yet something, he says now, was missing. "Sometimes, in the search for 'the moment,' you can get lost," Irving says. "I want to be an All-Star. OK. I want to be MVP. OK. I want to win a championship. I want to average this much. I want to be better than this person. I want the media to accept me this way. "You start formulating all these false realities, and you realize that's not it at all. Once I separated myself from that, I started looking at things I wanted to do with my life http://www.officialauthenticredsox.com/authentic-26-wade-boggs-jersey.html that would make me happy." cheap jerseys paypal cheap nfl jerseys usa wholesale jerseys paypal cheap nfl jerseys from china nike nfl jerseys from china nike nfl jerseys wholesale nike nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys china|

|IT'S THE FIRST day of school, September 2008, and a teenager navigates the hallways of St. Patrick High School, alone, fending off a twinge of panic. He senses the sideways glances. He hears the whispers. He notes the blatant http://www.officialcoltsfootballshop.com/Nike-Henry-Anderson-Jersey.html stares. For a fleeting moment, the 16-year-old considers, Why did I do this? Why didn't I just leave well enough alone? He'd been content at Montclair Kimberley Academy, the tony private school where he'd racked up 1,000 points over his freshman and sophomore years, leading the team to a New Jersey Prep B state title. Everybody knew the precocious point guard, the one so innovative with the ball that the faculty flocked to games to see what he would do next. The comfortable choice would have http://www.officialcalgaryflames.com/Adidas-Dennis-Wideman-Jersey been to stay alongside his childhood friends from West Orange, the ones who'd been balling with him since fourth grade, who engaged in epic games of 21 in each other's driveways -- the ones who knew that their friend was different when a piece of his backboard ripped off, and, after hundreds of attempts, he mastered a new shot Gerald Everett Authentic Jersey that accounted for the trajectory of the ball off the damaged corner. But during countless AAU tournaments when he spent his free moments studying elite players, he wondered how he measured up. There was only one way for Kyrie Irving to find out. So he transferred to St. Patrick, located in Elizabeth, about a half-hour drive south of Montclair. It was a national powerhouse program coached by Kevin Boyle, who'd mentored NBA pros Al Harrington and Samuel Dalembert. Now, as Irving wanders through a blur of faces in a maze of unfamiliar hallways, a boy in high-tops and jeans struts toward him. "Who are you?" the boy asks. "I don't know who you are." Irving doesn't respond. He knows exactly who this freshman is -- it's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, one of the top high school prospects in the country. Irving is all-but-unknown outside his prep-school bubble. Still, Kidd-Gilchrist has been notified by Coach Boyle that this scrawny kid is hoping to join their team, and Kidd-Gilchrist feels compelled to size him up. A few weeks into the school year, Kidd-Gilchrist begins hearing stories that Irving is blowing past everyone in preseason pickup games and converting crazy finishes. "I'm thinking," Kidd-Gilchrist says, "Well, that's fine, but he can't score on me." The first day of practice, Kidd-Gilchrist heaves the ball at the bashful, taciturn newcomer and chortles with a half-smile, "You and me. Let's go." Over the course of the next 10 minutes, Kidd-Gilchrist comes to understand. Irving lifts his head to snatch the ball, then reveals his ballhandling wizardry. He dribbles left, then right, then left again with so much deftness, it's as if the ball is on a string. He explodes forward, then glides back before launching a textbook jumper. Kidd-Gilchrist inches closer, but as he does, Irving zooms past him to the basket, lofting one-handed floaters and twisting layups. His new teammates are watching now, congregating in a semicircle as Kyrie blitzes the best player on one of the top high school teams in the country. Kidd-Gilchrist is stunned by the ferocity with which this seemingly reticent kid attacks not just the rim but also him. "He wasn't afraid," Kidd-Gilchrist says, "of anybody.'' Irving and Kidd-Gilchrist went on to lead St. Patrick to a championship that season. A year later, Kyrie committed to Duke as one of the top point guards in the nation. His decision to switch high schools was the first time in his life that he revealed an insatiable thirst for new challenges, no matter how daunting -- or inexplicable. "I had to show them I could play with them," Irving says. "And, after a while, I had to show them I could dominate them." For many, the swap from the Cavaliers to the Celtics last August was vexing. Irving was a champion on a contending franchise with a transcendent star, LeBron James. Who walks away from that? What they didn't know was Cleveland had explored trading Kyrie in June, long before he asked out, a fact conveniently omitted when word of his demand leaked. Irving made the decision to remain silent while the details of his request were, in his word, "distorted." I didn't feel the need to say anything because I knew the truth, and so did they," he says. "So it didn't matter what others said." Still, for a split second, Irving winces, as though someone has pricked him with a pin. "They didn't want me there," he says.Seven days later in Cleveland, James has just put the finishing touches on a win over Atlanta, the Cavaliers' 15th victory in their past 16 games. He conveys through the Cleveland public relations Womens Matt Holliday Jersey staff that he has already addressed Irving's departure and will decline to answer questions regarding their relationship. Now, as he stands near his locker at Quicken Loans Arena, he's asked about Irving's contention that the Cavs didn't want him. "That makes absolutely no sense," James declares.Asked to elaborate, James smiles politely, slings his bag over his shoulder and exits the arena. nhl jerseys wholesale cheap nba jerseys cheap nfl jerseys basketball jerseys cheap|

|Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh has a history of Womens Willie Snead Jersey slipping into bunker mode from time to time at the start of a season. It might be wise for Wolverine fans to follow suit as the program embarks on what could be a long, uncomfortable offseason.
On the heels of a disappointing finish to an 8-5 season, patience is evaporating quickly in Ann Arbor. The “wait until next year” crowd is dwindling. Michigan, which collapsed in the fourth quarter of an Outback Bowl loss to South Carolina earlier this week, has slid back to the middle of the pack in a league with an upper tier full of teams that don’t look to be going away anytime Authentic Ryan Johansen Jersey soon. The operative word for the next seven or eight months is a scary one in college football circles: uncertainty. It would be wrong to call 2018 a “do or die” year for Harbaugh and his football team. What would the “die” in that trope really mean here?
A new coaching regime? Absolutely not; Harbaugh remains as good Alan Branch Jersey of a cultural fit as his alma mater could hope for and has a football mind http://www.officialshopravensjerseys.com/Eric_Weddle_Jersey_Cheap coveted at every level of the game. So does that mean it’s time for a reality check about Michigan’s ability to compete for championships? That doesn’t seem right, either. The school has the resources, interest and recruiting prowess to remain among the programs that cycle through national championship contention runs.
The uneasiness ahead of Michigan comes from trying to fill in the blank after that “or.” Do or ... what? Insert a giant Joey Bosa sack celebration shrug here. The Wolverines ought to remember what that looks like. Some of the same issues that existed when the older Bosa helped beat Michigan in Harbaugh’s first season have yet to be solved. None is bigger than the team’s inability to finish.
In the past two years, Michigan has a losing record in games played after Halloween. The Wolverines are 4-6 in November and bowl season during that time, and in all six of those losses they held a second-half lead. The first season of those late-game losses (three of them by a total of five points) may have seemed like a reason to believe that Harbaugh and the Wolverines were ever so close to breaking through. A repeat this year had the opposite effect. So, what’s the problem?
“Yeah, one thing, it's being able to just kind of sustain the momentum,” Harbaugh told reporters immediately after Monday’s loss to South Carolina. “Keep the momentum and then get the knockout punch. That would be what my thought would be right now.”
The problem may be simple. The solution is not. Losing late -- in seasons and in games -- usually causes the arrow of blame to land on a team’s strength and conditioning. The Wolverines hired a new strength coach last month, but that’s much too simplistic to be heralded as a fix for their issues. Other changes may be on the way.
Michigan’s offense this season bumbled and fumbled away victories (outscored 37-0 in the fourth quarters of their five losses) for a myriad of reasons that could fall on a myriad of shoulders. Playcalling, quarterbacks, insufficient blocking, youth and more have taken their share of criticism. One new player -- like http://www.texansfootballsprostore.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_JJ_WATT_JERSEY.html quarterback Shea Patterson, who provides his own layer of uncertainty while waiting for an NCAA wavier to play in 2018 -- or one new coach won't solve all those woes.
What’s that mean moving forward? More uncertainty, which may be the least favorite word for a sports fan. The good team with an optimistic future gives its fan a chance to beat his chest while waiting for a new season. The fan of a decidedly bad team at least gets to commiserate and complain about the need for wholesale change. Michigan this year appears to be stuck in an awkward in between.
Any bold proclamations about the future of Michigan football -- good or bad -- in the coming offseason are worthy of skepticism. And anyone claiming to know what 2018 means for the capital-B Big Picture for the Wolverines is selling a bill of goods.
Of course, that won’t stop the opinions from coming, which brings us back to that bunker, Michigan fans. It’s going to be an uncomfortable, uncertain offseason for you. Best to hunker down now.
It was a great year for rookies in the NFL -- at some positions. There were legitimate stars at running back, cornerback and quarterback, if we include Deshaun Watson's shortened season. It was tough to pick standouts at positions like wide receiver and guard, where the highest-ranked players headed into the 2017 draft didn't produce.
So my 2017 All-Rookie team has some first-round picks and others littered throughout from Rounds 2 through 7. Teams got a lot of value on Day 2.
I did a team in the preseason and at midseason, and there are several changes. I'm including again where each player landed on my final top 300 prospects list before the 2017 draft.
|add to favorites||MLB's aces aren't extinct yet||Pc||
|The 2017 World Series was graced by a left-hander who ranks among the greatest pitchers of all time, a right-hander who is likely to be inducted into the Hall of Fame and another left-hander who recently won a Cy Young Award. But despite those résumés and the past successes of others, the starting pitchers accounted for just 65⅔ innings pitched over the seven games. That’s an average of fewer than five innings per start. No starter threw a pitch beyond the seventh inning. That’s where we are now, with analytics so embedded in the decision-making that managers are strongly discouraged from allowing some pitchers from even trying to get through an opposing lineup for a third time. The safer bet, statistically, is on the growing army of relievers who are assuming a greater share of innings -- and, as we’ve seen this winter, getting paid more for their work. The ace pitchers who once lorded over the art of pitching aren’t nearing extinction yet, but there are fewer than ever before, adding even more value to those trusted to face the enemy lineup a third or even a fourth time. Within that context, we start our top-10 series with this: the top 10 starting pitchers in major league baseball, based on input from evaluators and ESPN researchers Paul Hembekides and Sarah Langs. For example, 1905 was the year Christy Mathewson threw three shutouts in the World Series, and 1959 was the year Harvey Haddix took a perfect game into the 13th inning, and 1982 was the year Rickey Henderson stole 130 bases, and 1967 was the year Carl Yastrzemski won the last Triple Crown Jeff Skinner Youth jersey of the century. It sure does help when the number is a record, which necessitates us constantly bringing it up whenever somebody remotely challenges them. If somebody throws three no-hitters in Cory Littleton Jersey a row next year, you'll subsequently hear Johnny Vander Meer's name about 95 percent less often than you do now. But some numbers persist despite not being records -- Roger Maris' 1961 chase and Hank Aaron's 1974 jog around the bases will be remembered for many decades after "61" and "755" quit being records -- and some performances are memorable without a specific number, such as Sandy Koufax's breakout in 1963. 1b. Incredible team (often captured by a nickname) Because we like to argue about which team was the best team ever, and we like to show off by proving we can name decades-old lineups. So 1927 and 1928 were the years of Murderers' Row, 1975 was the year the Big Red Machine peaked, 1996 was the year the Core Four came together and launched a new Yankees dynasty, 1969 was the year of the Miracle Mets. 1c. Incredible single play, or sequence of plays, often aided by iconic photo or video images These are the single moments when a player was so good, so impactful or so loud it overwhelms the rest of the season. Of course, 1954 was the year not of the 111-43 Cleveland Indians -- the best record in AL history -- but of The Catch. And 1951 was the year of Bobby Thomson's Shot Heard 'Round The World, not Willie Mays' debut. And 1988 was most memorably the year of Kirk Gibson's home run, not Orel Hershiser's 59-inning scoreless streak. Baseball is a game of slowly building records, of naps on the couch and dull Augusts, but the very, very biggest moments can stand out like an air horn in a library. 2. The moment the timeline begins History is a long drive, and as with all long drives we remember the first and last miles more than the hours of unchanging landscapes in the middle. On the merits, the first World Series -- in 1903 -- wasn't that memorable, Authentic Mark Herzlich Jersey and in many ways, the play would have been unrecognizable to a modern fan: One team's ace was ineffective after injuring himself in a trap-shooting contest, another pitcher threw five complete games, and the best player on the field (Honus Wagner) made six errors. And yet nobody would dispute that the 2017 Series and the 1903 Series belong to the same lineage, which makes 1903 the infrastructure upon which our modern game is built. And so 1922 is the year baseball got its antitrust exemption, and 1929 is the year Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig first got uniform numbers, and 1935 is when night baseball began, and 1946 is when Jackie Robinson desegregated the minors, and 1950 is when Vin Scully started broadcasting games -- unless that one belongs under category 2b ...We can debate what's modern, but there are various points where the weird old-timey baseball they used to play became the cool and normal baseball we all love now. Which is why 1952 is the year Topps launched the modern baseball card, why 1965 is the year of the draft, and why 1976 is the year of free agency. This is probably the category for 2002's Moneyball A's -- a great team, but more historically memorable as the first modern team. 3. Bloopers and/or extraordinary failures I don't know that most people know what Snodgrass' Muff (1912) and Merkle's Boner (1908) actually were, but they're probably the http://www.ramsofficialsonline.com/Robert_Woods_Jersey_Cheap two most famous plays of the first quarter of the 20th http://www.authenticmapleleafsshops.com/authentic-17-wendel-clark-jersey.html century. Failure has a better set of vocabulary than success does, for one thing, but it's probably also the case that failure can fail a lot more dramatically than success can succeed. You actively hope for the walk-off homer, but you're not even considering the walk-off slow grounder through the first baseman's legs. So the 1986 season is the year of Bill Buckner, and the 2003 season is the year of Bartman and Grady Little, far more (in my opinion) than 2004 and 2016 will ultimately be remembered as the years of the Red Sox and Cubs winning. 4. Pathos Sometimes overlapping with reason No. 3 -- Muffs and Boners are undeniably stories of pathos -- but mostly its own thing. The pathos events are the years when happy, playful baseball must grapple with the fact that it exists in a larger world of death, injury and human failing: 1939, the year Lou Gehrig retired; 1957, the year Herb Score got hit by the line drive; 1919, the year of the Black Sox. 5. Disruption of baseball's basic equilibrium In 1944, Joe Nuxhall pitched in the majors when he was 15. Of course, he pitched in the majors not because he was the most incredible pitching prospect in history, but because all the good players had to go fight in the war, and so for two seasons baseball was basically profoundly weird. This happens sometimes, for reasons less dramatic than wars: The 1968 season was the year of the pitcher, the 1993 season was when the offensive environment of the steroids era really began (along with baseball in Colorado), and the 1987 season was a very brief juiced-ball moment. These are seasons we remember mostly as years when baseball broke, and when everything that happened has to be taken with a little bit of skepticism; you might even think of them as the year the stats don't count. You might actually put 1998 here, the year Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa homered so many danged times.

|add to favorites||Isaiah Thomas shows All-Star flashes in long-awaited Cavs debut||Pc||
|CLEVELAND -- Isaiah Thomas walked toward his locker before the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Portland Trail Blazers 127-110 on Tuesday, and before he could slip on his jersey ahead of his first game in more than seven months, his teammates caused a commotion to mark the moment. "I feel like a damn rookie," Thomas muttered under his breath as he sat down in front of his wine and gold No. 3 uniform. He didn't play like a rookie, however, as he scored 17 points and played 19 minutes in his long-awaited Cleveland debut.
"It was a special night for me," Thomas said afterward. "I haven't played in Nelson Cruz Jersey seven months, so to be able to be out there and compete against another team was special. Obviously to get the win was even bigger but just to be able to compete and be out there in a game setting, it was a great feeling for myself." Thomas checked in to a standing ovation with 4:33 left in the first quarter -- his first official action since Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals when he played for the Boston Celtics and faced the Cavs as an opponent on May 19 -- and picked up an assist on his first trip down the floor, passing to his old Boston teammate, Jae Crowder.
"It was a special moment," Thomas said of the reception. "I haven't played in a game, and you would think I was here for a few years and playing and battling in Finals with this team, but it was special for my family to be here, my wife and kids to see that, that's genuine love right there and I appreciate them patiently waiting and giving me the love they did tonight." Thomas took a spill on his second possession after crossing up Damian Lillard, but got back up with no damage other than a grimace on his face. He attempted his first shot the next time he touched the ball, rimming a 3-pointer in and out.
avs coach Tyronn Lue said he was hoping Thomas would experience a hard fall like that. "Once he hits the floor, gets banged and sees he has no damage or he's not hurting, I think that will help him get past the mental block of coming back, being out for seven months," Lue said before the game Thomas missed his next shot, a corner 3, but got his third shot to go -- a pull-up 14-foot jumper with 1:11 left in the first quarter.
He didn't stop there, scoring an and-1 layup on the http://www.authenticnikefalconshop.com/matt-ryan-jersey-for-sale-c-8.html next possession as he exploded past Portland guard Shabazz Napier. Thomas closed the first quarter by air-balling a 3; however, he made his first shot of the second quarter on a pull-up 3. When Thomas checked back in later in the second quarter, he immediately found LeBron James, who was posting up, for a feed down low, resulting in a bucket and showing a glimpse of what James could accomplish working more off the ball because of Thomas.
James offered a glowing report about his new teammate. "He's very good, very good," James said. "Very dynamic. Can shoot the pill. Can get in the lane. Can pass the ball. He's going to just create so much for our team." James also credited Thomas' mentality.
"What I like most about him is he has a chip on his shoulder for life," he said. "That's just who he is. When a guy's got a chip on his shoulder for life, he ain't going to -- he's never going to not http://www.authenticbruinsstore.com/cam-neely-jersey_c-426.html work hard. Not going to never give it his all. Not going to never disappoint you. Now basketball, you miss shots and things of that nature, and we're not worried about that. You make turnovers, all of that, that's not what I'm saying, but a guy like that -- he's going to always put in the work. And when you put in the work the game is going to always give back to you."
Making sure his night included a little of everything, Thomas was also whistled for a technical foul for arguing a non-call with a referee in the Authentic Peter Budaj Jersey first half. It was Womens Rasul Douglas Jersey actually his second technical foul of the season -- he picked one up while wearing street Rico Gathers Youth jersey clothes when the Cavs played the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden in November. Thomas didn't check back in until late in the third quarter, and his first shot hit the underside of the rim. But on the next possession, he found himself open in the corner and hit a 3-pointer to extend the Cavs' streak of hitting 10 3s or more as a team to a franchise-record 26th straight game.
Lue said that when he devised a game plan to stop Thomas as an opponent, his top priority was keeping Thomas off the foul line. The Blazers fell victim to Thomas' foul-drawing ways, as he used a pump fake to get fouled on a 3-point attempt later in the third quarter and earned three freebies. By the fourth quarter, Thomas seemed to find the rhythm that he claimed was eluding him in the three scrimmages he played in the weeks leading up to his debut. He hit a pull-up 3-point jumper in transition to push the Cavs' lead from six to nine at 100-91. Thomas checked out for good with 8:10 left in the fourth and the Cavs up 102-91. Lue dapped him up on the sideline before Thomas headed to his seat on the bench.
His 17 points came on 6-for-12 shooting (3-for-8 from 3), and he had three assists."I know it's going to take time at first and we got to go through the steps of going out there and playing in the game and figuring those things out, but once I get comfortable, then all the restrictions got to be off soon," Thomas said before Tuesday's game.
Thomas was asked pregame to compare how his body feels now compared to before he suffered his hip injury in March and aggravated it during the playoffs. "I mean, my hip is better, but I have no rhythm," he said. "I have no feel for the game right now. I've been out for so long it feels like I lost my powers. So even when we're out there scrimmaging, I can move around and do what I want, but I just don't have my powers yet." The prospect of playing against Kyrie Irving on the TD Garden parquet is something that gets Thomas' energy up; he couldn't help but break into a wide smile Friday when a reporter mentioned the upcoming Celtics game. However, he'll have to wait until the Cavs' game in Boston on Feb. 11.
"That minutes restriction don't make it hard at all," Thomas said when asked about sitting out Wednesday. "It would be hard to play in Boston with a minutes restriction. Whatever they say, I http://www.official76erstore.com/Markelle_Fultz_Jersey can't play in back-to-backs for however long. I've got to follow their rules and continue to get better each and every day." Thomas claims he can play 40 minutes right now, despite the Cavs holding him to about half that total on Tuesday.
|add to favorites||The Cincinnati Bengals and Marvin Lewis just can't quit each other||Pc||
|The team announced Tuesday that Lewis will return next season, signing him to a two-year contract that runs through the 2019 season. This comes after two days of discussions between Lewis and team owner Mike Brown that were all about “getting on the same page.” The Bengals are going to bring back Lewis, but his return needs to come with major changes. It has become clear the Bengals' fan base has grown weary of seeing the same results year after year. That was evident during the last few http://www.officialredsoxauthentic.com/Andrew_Benintendi_Jersey home games of the season, when the team was playing in front of an increasingly sparse crowd. Some fans on social media have threatened to stop going to the games at all if Lewis returns. The Bengals want to sell tickets as much as any other team. There's no way the front office is blind to what has happened with the fans in the past year. The team's lack of playoff wins now stretches all the way back to the 1990 season. Although Lewis has done plenty of good for the team during his tenure, in the end, his legacy will be defined by the postseason wins. He’s currently 0-7, which is the worst playoff record in NFL history for a coach with at least five postseason games. That has to change, and the team needs to help him get there. Major changes are the only way the team is going to able to sell another two years of Lewis to a disenchanted fan base, and it's likely in those discussions with Brown that Lewis was asking for the same thing. The lack of indoor practice facility, while frustrating for the coaching staff because the team has to waste time sitting on a bus traveling to the University of Cincinnati, is probably not the sticking point. The Bengals are the northernmost NFL team without an indoor facility, but even if the decision were made this week to get one, it likely wouldn't be built in time to Lanny McDonald Authentic Jersey do much good for next season. Lewis is likely seeking more control over personnel, much like he was the last time he and Brown went into these discussions after the 2010 season. Although Brown appeared to cede more control at the time, the Bengals still have one of the smallest scouting staffs in the league, rarely sign free agents or make big trades and seem reluctant to part with assistants or players who have money left on their contract. The firing of offensive coordinator Ken Zampese two weeks into the season was an anomaly for a team that thrives on continuity. That needs to change. With the contracts of many of the Bengals' assistants up, now is the perfect time for the team to make changes to the coaching staff. And the first order of business should be getting the offense back on track. If the Bengals want to sell this to the fans, they need to start in the offseason. They need to do everything possible to fix the offensive line, whether that means moving http://www.officialfloridapanthers.com/Adidas-Aleksander-Barkov-Jersey on from longtime assistant Paul Alexander, signing a quality free agent or taking a lineman in the first Womens Todd Gurley Jersey round of the draft. They need to hire an offensive coach who can get quarterback Andy Dalton back to the form he showed in 2015 with Hue Jackson. Free agency should be a priority, not a last resort. The Bengals need to show that they're serious about being a team that can win games in the postseason, not simply a team that's content to get there. And to win back their fan base, they need to start those changes now. The obvious choice is Brady, who is a strong candidate for NFL MVP honors, and one can never go wrong with that. While his performance dipped over the last few weeks, he still finished the season with a league-high 4,577 passing yards. With Brady always in the lead position, it's always good to add the "non-Brady-MVP" category, and that would be a toss-up between Lewis and Rob Gronkowski. Since taking over lead-back duties on Oct. 15 against the Jets, Lewis has been the team's most consistent, dynamic, dual-threat playmaker as he finished the season with 180 rushes for 896 yards and six touchdowns, with 32 catches for 214 yards and three touchdowns. -- Mike Reiss Suggs led the Ravens with 11 sacks and four forced fumbles. Baltimore was 6-1 in games in which Suggs recorded a full sack. A fourth-quarter strip sack sealed a 23-16 win over the Texans in late November. He ranks as the franchise's all-time leader in sacks (125.5) and forced fumbles (36). -- Jamison Hensley The Steelers have legit candidates in Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell and Cam Heyward. But Roethlisberger gets the slight nod for his electric late-season surge. No QB finished hotter than Big Ben, who threw for 1,953 yards and 16 touchdowns from Weeks 11 to 16. He ranked second in passing yards before sitting the season finale against Cleveland, and his 28 touchdowns ties for fifth league-wide. Take out that five-interception game against Jacksonville -- which was clearly an aberration -- and Roethlisberger's season line of 14 interceptions doesn't look so bad. Brown was brilliant all year, but so was Roethlisberger, who was near-perfect in the Steelers' game against New England without Brown. -- Jeremy Fowler NHL Hockey Jerseys Baseball Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal Wholesale Jerseys All|
|add to favorites||The Chiefs will host the Titans in their opener at||Pc||
|Arrowhead Stadium. If they win that, they will find themselves in either Pittsburgh or New England for the divisional round, depending on what happens in the Jaguars/Bills game. If Jacksonville wins, the Jags go to Pittsburgh and the Chiefs go to New England. If the Jags lose, the Chiefs -- as the highest-seeded wild-card-round winner -- would play the 2-seed Steelers in Pittsburgh in the divisional round. If they win their divisional round game, the Chiefs would play the Patriots, Steelers, Jaguars or Bills Trevor Rosenthal Jersey in the AFC Championship Game. The only way that game would be in Kansas City is if the opponent is the Bills. Reason for hope: This team has been to the playoffs before -- just last year, in fact. And while that experience was a Bud Norris Womens Jersey disappointing home loss to a Steelers team that didn't score a touchdown, sometimes negative experiences help teams grow. This Kansas City team has beaten the Patriots, Eagles and Chargers (twice), and their loss to the Steelers was a close one. They shook off their 1-6 midseason slump with three straight wins to claim their second straight division title, and they come in playing well. Reason for concern: That 1-6 midseason slump did happen, and it put on tape for a lot of teams a blueprint for limiting the Kansas City offense. If the Chiefs' run blocking has a bad day, it makes them one-dimensional and allows teams to beat them with relatively simple Cover 2 shell concepts. Oh, and on defense they struggle against the run. X factor: Justin Houston. The Chiefs' best pass-rusher hasn't been fully healthy for the playoffs the past two years. When he is, he's still a difference-maker on defense, where Kansas City needs to be better than it has been for much of this season. A healthy Houston could give the Chiefs an edge they haven't had in recent January matchups with the likes of Pittsburgh and New England. Path to Super Bowl LII: The Titans travel to Kansas City to play the Chiefs in the first round. If they win Brent Burns Jersey that, they would travel to either New England or Pittsburgh for the divisional round. (New England if the Bills beat the Jaguars, Pittsburgh if the Jags beat the Bills). Win that, and the Titans would find themselves in an AFC Championship Game against either the Patriots, Steelers, Jaguars or Bills. The only way it would be a home game is if the opponent were the Bills. Reason for hope: Uhhh ... they beat the Jaguars twice, which helps give them confidence they can beat the Jaguars. And hey, if DeMarco Murray can get back healthy, they have a 1-2 running back punch that can theoretically help them control games and maybe win ugly. Reason for concern: They'd lost three games in a row before Sunday's playoff-clinching victory over the Jags, and they really haven't looked good in awhile. Marcus Mariota had 12 touchdown passes and 15 interceptions heading into Sunday's regular-season finale. The Titans have not been able to get the passing game going at all. Talk about coach Mike Mularkey's job security can't be helping matters. X factor: Mariota. The dazzling young quarterback out of Oregon entered this season seemingly poised to make a big leap, and he did not. But the playoffs offer a fresh slate, and Mariota does bring a unique skill set with his ability to run as well as pass. If he gets on a roll, he could make a little magic. Path to Super Bowl LII: The Bills' first playoff game in a generation will be a road game in Jacksonville. Win that, and they would head to New England to play the Patriots, against whom they went http://www.officialrayshop.com/Corey_Dickerson_Jersey 0-2 this season. But if they shocked the world and won that, the Bills would play an http://www.patriotsshopfootballonline.com/45-donald-trump-super-bowl-jersey.html AFC Championship Game in either Pittsburgh, Kansas City or Tennessee. As the 6-seed, the Bills cannot host a playoff game. Reason for hope: If he's healthy, running back LeSean McCoy gives Buffalo a true top-of-the-league difference-maker in the running game and the passing game. The Bills have a solid offensive line, and if they can control games, they might have enough playmakers on offense to surprise a team or two. Reason for concern: McCoy was carted off Sunday with an ankle injury, and without him the Bills wouldn't be the same http://www.authenticbuccaneersofficial.com/Nike-Ryan-Fitzpatrick-Jersey.html team. But even with him, obviously very few of them have been here before. And while quarterback Tyrod Taylor might be the darling of the QBR/advanced stat circuit, one of his failings has been http://www.montrealcanadiensofficialonline.com/Adidas-Tomas-Plekanec-Jersey an inability to elevate his game and make the big-time plays that are required of quarterbacks in playoff games. X factor: Kelvin Benjamin. Acquired from Carolina in a surprising deadline trade, Benjamin was to give the Bills the No. 1 receiver their offense lacked. He has struggled with a knee injury, however, and might not be fully healthy until he gets that thing fixed in the offseason. But he was their go-for-it move, and if he can play like a No. 1 wide receiver in the playoffs, Womens Tyron Smith Jersey he could make a difference.

|add to favorites||Path to Super Bowl LII: The Patriots' first playoff game will||Pc||
|be at home against either the Bills, Chiefs or Titans. If the Bills beat the Jaguars in the wild-card round, they'd travel to New England for the divisional round. If the Jaguars win that game, the Patriots' first game would be against the Titans-Chiefs winner. Win that, and the Patriots would host the AFC Championship Game against either the Steelers, Jaguars, Chiefs or Titans.Reason for hope: Uh ... it's the Patriots. You can have a 25-point lead against them in the Super Bowl, and they still win. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are the greatest of all time at what they do, and there's no team in the field that has even close to the amount of experience the Patriots have in big January games. Reason for concern: The defense has held together for much of the season in spite of a slew of big-time losses, and it still misses linebacker Dont'a Hightower. That's the kind of thing that could show up in a different way once the competition http://www.losangeleskingsofficialonline.com/Adidas-Rogie-Vachon-Jersey stiffens. They're not far removed from a loss in Miami in which Brady looked terrible and the Dolphins ran all over their defense. So while they're the favorite, they're not invincible. Path to Super Bowl LII: The Steelers' first playoff game will be a home game against either the Jaguars, Titans or Chiefs. If the Bills beat the Jaguars, the Steelers would host the Titans/Chiefs winner in the divisional round. If the Jags beat the Bills, Jacksonville travels to Pittsburgh for the divisional round. If the Steelers win their first game, they would play in the AFC Championship Game against either the Patriots, Bills, Titans or Chiefs. It would be a Steelers home game unless the opponent is the Patriots. Reason for hope: The defense appears to be in better shape than it was this time last year, with Cam Heyward healthy and some of the younger guys like Artie Burns and Javon Hargrave having grown in their roles throughout the season. We know what the Steelers can do on offense if healthy, but this year's defense has been consistently tough and gives Pittsburgh a better chance of slowing down Tom Brady & Co. than they've had in recent seasons. Reason for concern: The health of WR Antonio Brown. He suffered a serious calf injury in Week 15 and missed the final two games of the regular season. The Steelers are hopeful that they'll have him for their playoff opener, but they can't be sure (A) whether they will or (B) how close to full strength he will be. Pittsburgh has been derailed by injuries to Brown and/or Le'Veon Bell in recent playoff runs, and the fact that Womens Terrence Ross Jersey they held Bell and Ben Roethlisberger out of Sunday's regular-season finale shows you just how panicked the Steelers are about not having their stars for the games that mean the most.X factor: The run game. Dion Lewis has been a machine, and the Patriots will lean on him to carry the load. But their run game is at its best when it has diversity with Rex Burkhead and James White, who can be factors in the passing game as well. Each has dealt with injuries toward the end of the season, and it will be important for New England to get them back for their playoff run. Brady can bring the Patriots back at the end, but it helps to control games if they have balance on offense. X factor: Wide receiver Martavis Bryant. He has been disgruntled for much of his first season back from suspension. He asked for a trade early in the season and probably will again after the season. But the Steelers kept him because they believe he can be a game-changing weapon for them with http://www.chicagoblackhawksofficialonline.com/Adidas-Jonathan-Toews-Jersey his rare combination of size and speed. He was (obviously) a bigger part of the game plan with Brown out in late December. Perhaps that sparks something that makes a difference in January. Path to Super Bowl LII: The Authentic Jorge Soler Jersey Jaguars' first playoff game in 10 years will be a home game against a team that hasn't played a playoff game in 18 years. They will host the Bills in the divisional round. Should they win, they would travel to Pittsburgh for their second-round game, and if they win that, they would play an AFC Championship Game against the Patriots, Chiefs or Titans. If they get that far, the Jaguars would host the AFC Championship Game as Julius Erving Authentic Jersey long as the Patriots are not their opponent. Reason for hope: No team in the AFC field plays defense the way Jacksonville does. The Jaguars have stars at all three levels. They can rush the passer, their corners can cover receivers one-on-one and their linebackers are versatile. Prior to Sunday's game against the Titans, which was meaningless to them, the Jaguars hadn't lost to an AFC opponent since Oct. 1, when the Jets beat them. On either side of that game, they whipped the Ravens 44-7 and won 30-9 in Pittsburgh. Reason for concern: The franchise hasn't played a playoff game in a decade, and the roster is loaded with dudes who've never played http://www.officialwhitesoxproshop.com/Joe_Crede_Jersey in one. This is a team built on its run game and its defense, which means it's built to play from ahead. Blake Bortles spent most of December red-hot, but if the Jags fall behind, is he capable of bringing them back? X factor: Wide Charles Haley Jersey receiver health. The Jags lost top wideout Allen Robinson in the first game of the season and have had to play at times without Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns because of injury. And while Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook have shown flashes, teams don't want to be leaning too hard on rookies at this time of year. At some point, the Jags will have to rely on their passing game. When that time comes, it would help to have Lee and Hurns in there and healthy.

|add to favorites||Aaron Donald. The Rams' all-world defensive tackle||Pc||
|is the kind of player you just feel is built for the playoffs. He might be the best defensive player in the league, he's looking for a big new contract, and there just aren't many interior offensive linemen who can handle Jason Taylor Authentic Jersey him. Donald is Wade Phillips' game-wrecker, the way Von Miller was for the Broncos on their Super Bowl run two years ago
Path to Super Bowl LII: The Saints will host the division-rival Panthers, against whom they went 2-0 this season, in their playoff opener. If they win that, they'll travel to either Philadelphia or Minnesota for the divisional round. (If the Falcons beat the Rams, a victorious Saints team would go to Minnesota. If the Rams beat the Falcons, the Saints would go Womens Ronde Barber Jersey to Philadelphia). Win that game, and the Saints would find themselves in an NFC Championship http://www.dolphinsauthenticjerseys.com/Authentic-Charles-Harris-Jersey Game against either the Falcons, Eagles or Vikings. The only way the Saints can play the NFC Championship Game at home is if their opponent is the Falcons.
Reason for hope: They have the best quarterback in the NFC field. Drew Brees might not have had his usual, eye-popping statistical season, but his efficiency was off the charts. And just because the Saints were able to win by running the ball and making a few big plays on defense doesn't mean they can't count on Brees to put them on his back and win them a game when they need him to. He's the only quarterback in the field who has won a Super Bowl.
Reason for concern: There's http://www.ravensshopfootball.com/Authentic-Breshad-Perriman-Jersey really not much not to like here, but if you're looking for reason to worry, four of their losses were on the road and four were to playoff teams. However, two of those were in Weeks 1 and 2 to Minnesota and New England, and the Saints obviously didn't have their feet under them yet. They will be more formidable in the Superdome. X factor: The defense. It's still a young group, and until you see young players under playoff pressure you can't know what to expect. New Orleans' offense is so good and so versatile and so balanced that you feel certain they can score with any team. But can that young Saints defense make a big play to win a playoff game when it needs to?
Path to Super Bowl LII: Iman Shumpert Authentic Jersey The Panthers have to solve the Saints in order to start their road back to the Super Bowl. They went 0-2 against New Orleans this season. But if they beat them this time, they will travel to either Philadelphia or Minnesota in the divisional round. (To Philadelphia if the Rams beat the Falcons, to Minnesota if the Falcons beat the Rams.) Win that, and the Panthers would land in an NFC Championship Game against either the Eagles, Vikings, Rams or Falcons. The only way that game would be at home is if it were against the Falcons.
Reason for hope: The Panthers know the way to the Super Bowl as well as anyone in this field, having reached the big game two years ago. There has been a lot of turnover since then, but quarterback Cam Newton, tight end Greg Olsen and linebackers Thomas Davis and Luke Kuechly are the team leaders and all were part of that run. That 2015 Carolina team was a front-runner that went 15-1 and didn't confront much adversity until the Super Bowl, when it crumbled. This Carolina team has overcome a lot and shown a seasoned contender's ability to thrive under difficult circumstances.
Reason for concern: The passing game. The Panthers entered Sunday's regular-season finale ranked 27th in the league with 194.4 passing yards per game and 21st at 6.24 yards per pass attempt. They win with their run game and their fearsome front seven, and Newton's ability to make plays with his legs when things break down is a big part of what they do. When they do throw it, it's often short to dynamic running back Christian McCaffrey. But with Kelvin Benjamin shipped off to Buffalo, Curtis Samuel injured and Devin Funchess playing hurt, there aren't many downfield weapons for Newton in a league that tends to require one or two of those in big games.
X factor: Olsen. http://www.officiallaramsauthentic.com/Cory-Littleton-Jersey.html He missed nine games with a foot injury but returned late in the season and looked like his old self down the stretch. If he can stay healthy and productive in the coming weeks, it's possible he could help cure what ails the Panthers' passing game.
Path to Super Bowl LII: The Falcons will open in Los Angeles. Beat the Rams, and they get a trip to Philadelphia the following week for a matchup with Nick Foles' Eagles, who suddenly look a little vulnerable. If they win that, they'd get an NFC Championship Game in either Minnesota, Charlotte, New Orleans or Los Angeles. As the No. 6 seed, the Falcons cannot play a home playoff game.
Reason for hope: They've done this before, and not long ago. The Falcons were a division champion and had a bye last season, but they did reach the Super Bowl and came about as close as a team can come to winning it without winning it. Their coaches, quarterback and pretty much whole roster knows what it takes to win these games, and while the season was rocky, once teams get into the field, you never know what might happen. Running back Devonta Freeman looks fantastic, too.
Reason for concern: The season was rocky, and http://www.officialfootballauthentics.com/los_angeles_lakers-c-1593_1688.html the offense isn't humming the way it was this time a year ago. Something has been off with the Matt Ryan/Julio Jones connection almost all season. Maybe it's as simple as the change in offensive coordinators, but maybe it's just a factor of "not every year is great." The Falcons have hurt themselves with drive-extending penalties and just Scott Simonson Youth jersey generally don't look like the same operation they looked like in 2016.X factor: Jones. While he hasn't had his best season, Jones is capable of making any catch at any time and taking over a game, as he did against Green Bay in last year's NFC title game. If he and Ryan find that elusive connection, he'll be a nightmare for any opponent.

|add to favorites||Bracket, schedule, Super Bowl paths, more||Pc||
|We have arrived, at long last, upon the NFL postseason. This is lousy news for 20 teams but wonderful news for 12. And if you're a fan of one of those 12, this right here is the document you want to clip and save -- or whatever the 2018 internet equivalent of that might be. ESPN's 2018 playoff primer breaks down each team's path, looks at its chances and tells you everything you need to know about what your team must do to reach Super Bowl LII next month in Minneapolis. We hope you find it enjoyable and educational. Path to Super Bowl LII: The Eagles get a bye, then will host either the sixth-seeded Falcons Alex Pietrangelo Jersey (if they win their first-round game), the fourth-seeded Saints or the fifth-seeded Panthers. Win that, and the Eagles would host the NFC Championship Game against either the Vikings, Rams, Saints or Panthers. Reason for hope: The Eagles have been the best team all season. Their only losses entering Sunday (when they rested many starters in a home loss to Dallas) were road defeats in Kansas City and Seattle -- hardly anything of which to be ashamed. Even at their worst, which they were against the Giants on defense in Week 15 and against the Raiders on offense in Week 16, they've managed to find ways to win. They are deep and talented on both sides of the ball and can play a variety of styles and still win. Reason for concern: Don't know if you've heard, but star quarterback Carson Wentz tore his ACL in Week 14, and the Eagles are rolling into the playoffs with Nick Foles. While Foles looked great in his first game, he doesn't offer Wentz's ability to make chicken salad on third and fourth downs. That was a key element of what made Philadelphia different from the other NFC contenders all season, and without it they may be just one of several very good teams in the NFC field. X factor: Jay Ajayi. The Eagles should have the ability to lean on their run game to control games, especially once they take the lead. They got Ajayi to be a guy on whom they could rely for a heavy workload, and so far they haven't used him that way. It's possible they have a plan for him in the playoffs that would offer a new dimension to an offense that needs a post-Wentz jolt. First game: Home game in divisional round on Sunday, Jan. 14 (4:40 p.m. ET on Fox) | Tickets Path to Super Bowl LII: The Vikings will get a bye week and then host a playoff game Jan. 14 against either the Rams, Saints or Panthers. If the Falcons beat the Rams in the wild-card round, the Vikings would host the Panthers-Saints winner. If the Rams beat the Falcons, the Vikings would host the Rams. If they win that, they would play in an NFC Championship Game either in Philadelphia or at home against the Falcons, Saints or Panthers. Reason for hope: The defense is an absolute monster. Entering Sunday's game, the Vikings had held four of their previous six opponents under 10 points, and two of those opponents were the Rams and the Falcons. They allowed the fewest points per game and fewest yards per game of any team in the league. They had the second-best third-down defense and the second-best goal-to-go defense. You wish they were better at generating turnovers (just 19 all season entering Sunday), but the defense is so good at limiting opponents in so many situations that it should keep http://www.officialrockiestore.com/Carlos_Gonzalez_Jersey the Vikings in every game. Reason for concern: Since they didn't secure the No. 1 seed, Derick Brassard Youth jersey the prospect of having to win an outdoor game in Philadelphia to advance to the Super Bowl (which would be in their own home stadium, by the way) Antti Raanta Jersey looms large. And as http://www.authenticstlouiscardinals.com/Adam-Wainwright-Jersey great as Case Keenum's story and season have been, we haven't seen him tested under playoff pressure. X factor: The pass protection. One of the key elements to Keenum's season has been the Vikings' ability to keep him protected. Entering Sunday, he'd been sacked just 20 times -- fewer than any other quarterback in the NFC field besides Drew Brees. (And of course Nick Foles, who has started only three games.) Can the Vikings' improved offensive line keep Keenum clean against the type of pass rushes he'll see on the road to Super Bowl LII?Path to Super Bowl LII: The Rams host the defending NFC champion Falcons. If they win that, they would travel to Minnesota for a divisional-round game against the Vikings. Win that, and the Rams would find themselves in an NFC Championship Game either in Philadelphia or at home against the Saints or Panthers. Reason for hope: The Rams were the highest-scoring team in the league at 31 points per game before Sunday's white-flag, regular-season finale. Todd Gurley, who didn't play Sunday, led the NFL with 2,093 yards from scrimmage, and with top wideout Robert Woods back from injury, the passing game is in position to click the way it was during the middle part of the season. Coach Sean McVay isn't running out of creative offensive ideas anytime soon. Reason for concern: Same as for a lot of teams in this NFC field -- inexperience. Jared Goff has been an NFL starter for a season and a half. Gurley is a third-year player. The wideouts and tight ends are a young, inexperienced group. And there's also the fact that no other potential playoff team but Tennessee entered Week 17 with more turnovers than the Rams' 19. The margin for error shrinks this time of year.

|add to favorites||Finding the single memory that defines each baseball season since 1903||Pc||
|I couldn't tell you off the top of my head who won the 1945 Brandon Dubinsky Authentic Jersey World Series, but I could tell you that a goat got kicked out of it. I couldn't tell you who the best pitcher in baseball was in 1956, but I could tell you who threw a perfect game in that year's World Series. I don't remember who hit the most home runs in 1990, but I do remember that the Mariners' No. 2 and 3 hitters -- both of them named Griffey -- hit back-to-back dingers one day that year. Most of us remember these things like we remember our first phone number.
We would probably all be surprised to find out what history will remember about our era. Once the eyewitnesses die, a lot of weird stuff gets remembered, and a lot of stuff that seemed important at the time gets forgotten. I got to wondering what history will remember about 2017 -- what a late-21st century kid raised on baseball trivia books, This Date In History radio segments and her granddad's memories will know about this past season. To answer that requires first figuring out what gets remembered and why.
So, with the help of a few smart baseball friends, I charted 114 years of baseball by the single most memorable fact of each season -- the one thing a fairly serious baseball fan has probably heard of from that year. What we learned: There are exactly seven ways to be remembered. Plus subcategories.
For example, 1905 was the year Christy Mathewson threw three shutouts in the World Series, and 1959 was the year Harvey Haddix took a perfect game into the 13th inning, and 1982 was the year Rickey Henderson stole 130 bases, and 1967 was the year Carl Yastrzemski won the last Triple Crown of the century. It sure does help when the number is a record, which necessitates us constantly bringing
it up whenever Womens Yogi Ferrell Jersey somebody remotely challenges them. If somebody throws three no-hitters in a row next year, you'll subsequently hear Johnny Vander Meer's name about 95 percent less often than you do now. But some numbers persist despite not being records -- Roger Maris' 1961 chase and Hank Aaron's 1974 jog around the bases will be remembered for many decades after "61" and "755" quit being records -- and some performances are memorable without a specific number, such as Sandy Koufax's breakout in 1963.
1b. Incredible team (often captured by a nickname)
Because we like to argue about which team was the best team ever, and we like to show off by proving we can name decades-old lineups. So 1927 and 1928 were the years of Murderers' Row, 1975 was the year the Big Red Machine peaked, 1996 was the year the Core Four came together and launched a new Yankees dynasty, 1969 was the year of the Miracle Mets.
Incredible single play, or sequence of plays, often aided by iconic photo or video images
These are the single moments when a player was so good, so impactful or so loud it overwhelms the rest of the season. Of course, 1954 was the year not of the Authentic Sergio Romo Jersey 111-43 Cleveland Indians -- the best record in AL history -- but of The Catch. And 1951 was the year of Bobby Thomson's Shot Heard 'Round The World, not Willie Mays' debut. And 1988 was most memorably the year of Kirk Gibson's home run, not Orel Hershiser's 59-inning scoreless streak. Baseball is a game of slowly building records, of naps on the couch and dull Augusts, but the very, very biggest moments can stand out like an air horn in a library.
History is a long drive, and as with all long http://www.bruinsteamprostore.com/Brandon_Carlo_Jersey drives we remember the first and last miles more than the hours of unchanging landscapes in the middle. On the merits, the first World Series -- in 1903 -- wasn't that memorable, and in many ways, the play would have been unrecognizable to a modern fan: One team's ace was ineffective after injuring himself in a trap-shooting contest, another pitcher threw five complete games, and the best player on the field (Honus Wagner) made six errors. And yet nobody would dispute that the 2017 Series and the 1903 Series belong to the same lineage, which makes 1903 the infrastructure upon which our modern game is built.
And so 1922 is the year baseball got its antitrust exemption, and 1929 is http://www.officialpacershop.com/authentic-11-domantas-sabonis-jersey.html the year Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig first got uniform numbers, and 1935 is when night baseball began, and 1946 is when Jackie Robinson desegregated the minors, and 1950 is when Vin Scully started broadcasting games -- unless that one belongs under category 2b ...
We can debate what's modern, but there are various points where the Womens Jersey weird old-timey baseball they used to play became the cool and normal baseball we all love http://www.authenticmagicproshop.com/authentic-9-nikola-vucevic-jersey.html now. Which is why 1952 is the year Topps launched the modern baseball card, why 1965 is the year of the draft, and why 1976 is the year of free agency. This is probably the category for 2002's Moneyball A's -- a great team, but more historically memorable as the first modern team
|add to favorites||Jake Elliott's 61-yard game-winning field goal||Pc||
|The rookie kicker nailed the long field goal as time expired to give the Eagles a 27-24 win over the Giants in Week 3. That was the first Jeff Skinner Youth jersey sign Philadelphia might be in for a special season. Quarterback Carson Wentz was miked up Jake McCabe Womens Jersey for that game and was overheard saying he'd give Elliott his game check if he made the kick. Instead, the two decided to donate money to charity. Worst moment: Losing Carson Wentz for the rest of the season Wentz tore the ACL in his left knee in a Week 14 win on the road against the Rams. The Eagles clinched the NFC East that night but lost their MVP-caliber signal-caller for the season. "He was the first person greeting everyone in the locker room on the way in," said safety Malcolm Jenkins. "I don't know what to tell a man in that situation; I just told him I loved him as a teammate, loved him as a friend. Obviously, everyone is feeling for him." -- Tim McManus The Redskins' most complete victory was their http://www.authenticbluejaysstore.com/Authentic-Russell-Martin-Jersey 27-10 win over the Raiders in Week 3, but the best moment was when they rallied in the final minute to beat the Seahawks on the road, thanks to two clutch throws by quarterback Kirk Cousins, catches by Brian Quick and a diving catch by Josh Doctson. They only had 43 healthy players available. It became an improbable win that, at the time, could have led them to a better finish. Worst moment: The Scot McCloughan situation That's not to blame the Redskins for all that transpired, but regardless, it was not a good situation when the then-general manager failed to show at the combine and his absence was exacerbated with a lie -- saying he missed to attend his grandmother's funeral. The Redskins tried to make the situation work for a couple of weeks, hoping they could get through the draft. Eventually, they fired him, and there was an anonymous quote from a team official blaming his drinking. Whether the Redskins were right or not, it led to questions nationally about the direction of the franchise as free agency began. -- John Keim On a play that was drawn up (mostly) in the dirt, Rodgers rolled to his left and lofted a 35-yard pass to Cook, who somehow managed to get both feet in bounds before his knees hit the white paint at AT&T Stadium with three seconds left in Harrison Barnes Authentic Jersey the divisional playoff game. It set up Mason Crosby's game-winning 51-yard field goal that sent the Packers to the NFC Championship Game for the second time in three years. The Rodgers-to-Cook throw won an ESPY for the best play of the year. Worst moment: Broken collarbone 2.0 For the second time in five seasons, Rodgers' season was interrupted by a broken collarbone. Unlike in 2013, when Rodgers returned for the regular-season finale and got the Packers into the playoffs, there was no happy ending. He returned, but after the Packers were eliminated from postseason consideration a week later, the team shut him down. The broken collarbone was the biggest contributor to the end of a franchise-record eight straight playoff appearances. -- Rob Demovsky Last week's playoff-clinching win over the rival Falcons inside a raucous Superdome is certainly a contender, since it ended a three-year postseason drought. But the biggest key to New Orleans' 2017 turnaround was their sensational draft week -- from cornerback Marshon Lattimore's surprising fall into their laps at No. 11 to their third-round trade for running back Alvin Kamara. Those two might wind up as the NFL's Defensive and Offensive Rookies of the Year, and the Saints got a total of five starters from this year's draft class. Worst moment: Learning of Nick Fairley's heart condition The Saints' low point came back in the spring, when they learned that their defensive tackle had a heart condition that wound up ending his season (and likely his career). The Saints have been able to overcome Fairley's absence for the most part, but it was a http://www.shopbrownsfootball.com/Seth-Devalve-Jersey stunning and sad development. And the Saints would surely be even more potent with him in the lineup, which is why they had re-signed him to a lucrative contract extension in March. -- Mike Triplett After being forced to take a bye in Week 1 and evacuating due to Hurricane Irma, the Bucs beat the Bears 29-7 in Week 2 at home. Tampa Bay had two offensive touchdowns, and the defense forced four turnovers and held the Bears to just 20 total rushing yards, looking very much like the team that had gone on a five-game win streak to finish 9-7 in http://www.hockeyjetsofficialauthenticshop.com/Jansen_Harkins_Jersey_Adidas 2016. Things unraveled from there, though. Worst moment: The 38-33 loss to the Cardinals in Week 6 After losing a close one to the Patriots 19-14 on Thursday Night Football, the Bucs completely fell apart for the second year in a row against Arizona. The 38-33 score made it look much, much closer than it actually was. At the beginning of the third quarter, they were down 31-0. It was in this game that many fans realized this was not at all the 2016 defense that led the league in third-down conversions and finished third in takeaways. -- Jenna Laine It didn't take long for the Cardinals to experience their lowest moment.
