Michael Floyd to critics upset he gets Super Bowl ring: ‘Oh well. I’m a champion!’

Is Joe Flacco elite? The Baltimore quarterback helped erase that punchline with another ready-made postseason run from a team that caught fire at the right time. The Ravens lost four of their last five regular-season games, but that’s when the Ray Lewis retirement tour started. Baltimore beat Indianapolis in the wild card, then Flacco’s miracle 70-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones forced overtime at Denver. Then, Baltimore beat New England in the AFC championship game to advance to the “Harbaugh Bowl.” Baltimore held off a second-half rally by the 49ers. Lewis retired. Flacco earned a status bump. The Ravens won their second Super Bowl.

Patriots receiver Michael Floyd didn’t play in the Super Bowl or the AFC championship game, but he still will get a championship ring because he did play three games for New England when the Cardinals cut him following a DUI arrest. Sound unfair?

Floyd received plenty of criticism on Twitter after posting a picture of himself kissing the Lombardi Trophy Sunday after the Patriots incredible comeback over the Falcons.

Floyd hauled in just five catches for the Patriots, who gave the 27-year-old a second chance in December after he was arrested on DUI charges, leading to his release by Arizona.

He stayed out of trouble in Boston, in part to living at a hotel Cheap Jerseys Shop and spending most of his time at the team’s facility. Good for him, right?

NFL Combine: Leonard Fournette’s impressive 40 time leaves three questions for GMs

What did Leonard Fournette’s performance at the NFL Scouting Combine on Friday do for his 2017 NFL Draft stock?

It depends on what you are looking at. Fournette weighed in at 240 pounds and disappointed with a 28.5-inch vertical. Fournette, however, overshadowed that with a 4.51 in the 40-yard dash.That’s comparable to the times of Christian McCaffrey (4.48) and Dalvin Cook (4.49).

It kind of hurt, to be honest, because I’m a supreme competitor. It was great to get to the ACC championship because we hadn’t been there since Tyrod Taylor, but I think we could have played better than we played.

I think if we played our best game, we could’ve beat them. They were a great team, and my we accomplished so much, but it would’ve been even better had we beat them. But they were a really great team.

Your head coach, Justin Fuente, coached Paxton Lynch just a year ago (and Lynch) became a first-round pick. How much have you spoken to him, and what type of advice did he give you?

I actually made a joke while I was getting recruited (by Fuente) that I was going to be a “one-and-done” in college, but I didn’t think I’d actually do that. I never thought we’d be in this Cheap NFL Jerseys China scenario or get this chance, but we talked about it early on and even before the season.

But we were at that level, that highest level, together for the first time and we did a lot of feeling the situation out, trying to make sure we got the ball rolling early. He kind of taught me how to play the quarterback position in a better light, and what really to focus on during the year. I Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys learned a lot.

This is the most promising Wizards season in

It’s a stress on an offense to have a non-shooting shooting guard. But under new coach David Fizdale, Memphis put together decent shooting figures despite Allen’s lack of offensive contribution. The Grizzlies ranked No. 13 in three-point rate (a frequency metric) and No. 17 in three-point percentage. They are the Rockets or Warriors, but they aren’t the Thunder or Bulls.

One came in his sophomore season against Idaho State. That reception, a connection with eventual Oregon QB Vernon Adams, showed off both Kupp’s hands and his knack for altering his routes.

“We had made some adjustments on a few different plays,” he said. “They kept going cover 1, and we were just missing on a few inside fade balls. We had a little corner route called from the slot, and we [had three receivers to one side], and they were going middle field-open. And so we adjusted NHL Jerseys Wholesale it to a seam route, and going up the middle, it was basically running the seam off a Mike backer.”

This is the most promising Wizards season in, well … for the sake of Wizards fans, we don’t have to count. What we do know is they haven’t been to a conference finals since 1979. They hadn’t won their division since that season, either, and that finally happened this year. Maybe the conference finals come next.

That’s easy to say for me as an outsider. For a Wizards fan — a fan of any D.C. sports team, if you want to expand the perspective — they’re just waiting for something bad to happen. Can you blame them? Over the past 38 years (sorry) only bad things have happened.

It takes a solid matchup get fans excited for football on the day before Christmas

McDowell is going to give whichever team drafts him a lot of position and scheme versatility which means it’s going to be harder for a bad team to ruin him. If that bad team that drafts him and lines Website For Cheap Jerseys him up in the A gap a lot, I will likely pull all my dreads out.

I’m not knocking Michigan State for where they played McDowell, because I don’t know what their motivation was for putting him in the A gap. College teams are going to be focused on winning games more than showcasing guys for the NFL. If both happen to happen simultaneously, cool, but coaches who don’t win games but have a bunch of first- and second-round picks aren’t going to last as a coach very long these days.

It’s frustrating because I would have loved to have seen McDowell out as a five tech or even a three technique more.

It takes a solid matchup get fans excited for football on the day before Christmas, and this one fits the bill. Both teams have star power and should be competitive late in the season.

This game will be a candidate for least-watched evening game of the 2017 season, even with two strong fan bases. There are better ways to spend Christmas night than watching this one.

We also might start seeing a real run on the second-tier quarterbacks. Only three QBs got drafted on Day 2: DeShone Kizer in the second round, and Davis Webb and C.J. Beathard in the third round. Now that we’re in the final stretch, intriguing but flawed prospects like Joshua Dobbs, Nate Peterman, and Brad Kaaya could get drafted in spots where teams are more comfortable taking them.

Day 3 of the draft begins at noon ET on Saturday, with coverage at ESPN and NFL Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Network. Viewers can stream it online at WatchESPN and Watch NFL Network.

Washington pick Samaje Perine once ran for *427 yards* in a record-setting game

Samaje Perine was one of college football’s most consistent, efficient running backs over the last three seasons. He’s now a Washington NFL draft pick.

Perine’s Oklahoma Sooners evolved on offense during his time in Norman, shifting away from the run game even as they added talent to their backfield (he’s one of two OU backs we rank in this draft’s top eight runners). Perine’s overall numbers shrunk because of that, but he was still a 1,000-yard rusher every year.

In a 2014 game against a woebegone Kansas, Perine took the ball 34 times and ran for 427 yards — a 12.5-yard average, with five touchdowns mixed in. The yardage total is a still-standing record for the Football Bowl Subdivision, the college game’s highest level of play. It’s possible it will never be matched, even though the record he was breaking — 408 by Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon against Nebraska — had been set the week prior.

Kansas’ defense is bad. Probably, it’s been the worst team in the sport’s power NBA Basketball Jerseys conferences over the last handful of years. Perine will see defenses that are just a liiiitttttle better Cheap Jerseys Soccer in the NFL. But what’s being sorted out this spring is just what Perine’s upside might be at the next level.

Watson doesn’t have the arm of Mahomes or the mechanics of Trubisky. Instead, he’s got a national championship. All the dual-threat passer did at Clemson was win, and a solid showing at the combine proved he can make NFL-level throws. However, like every other passer in this draft class, he’s a big risk.

Teams in dire need of a quarterback have to be more conservative with their risk, and that’s why they’d lean toward a player like Trubisky or Mahomes who have higher ceilings. Teams with the luxury of letting Watson play without immense expectations would have the liberty to allow him to develop at his own pace.
