Texans draft class features playmakers Deshaun Watson, D’Onta Foreman

Regardless of who comes out of the Houston Texans’ 2017 draft class, this group is a massive success because of what rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson accomplished before his season-ending torn ACL.

The group also has a couple of intriguing prospects who could develop into solid players who could help Watson in the future. Here’s a look at the Texans’ 2017 draft class:

Best rookie: Even though he played in only seven games before tearing the ACL in his right leg in an early November practice, Watson was the Texans’ standout rookie, by far. He was having one of the best ever seasons for a rookie quarterback — he threw for 1,699 yards with 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions and added 269 yards and two scores on the ground — and was on pace to shatter the rookie record for passing touchdowns. Watson’s season was cut short, but he is expected to be healthy for the start of the 2018 season.

Most improved rookie: The Texans liked what they saw from running back D’Onta Foreman during their offseason program, but head coach Bill O’Brien noted that the second-round pick needed to get in better football condition. Foreman had an up-and-down Customized Houston Texans jerseys season and even had a game without a carry in Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks. But in the Week 11 game against the Cardinals when he tore his left Achilles, Foreman had his best performance of the season with 65 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries. The former Texas standout was the backup running back behind Lamar Miller, but if he can pick up where he left off next season, Foreman could challenge Miller for the majority of the carries in 2018.

Most disappointing rookie: Defensive tackle Carlos Watkins got off to a slow start, according to O’Brien. In the Texans’ first five games, Watkins was inactive for three and did not play in a fourth. O’Brien said the fourth-round pick had a hard time early in the year because it took him a little while to get used to playing against bigger, stronger players in the NFL as opposed to the players he faced at Clemson. The head coach said he has seen Watkins improve throughout the season and that he thinks the defensive lineman is “going to be a good player.”

Jury is still out on …: Julién Davenport. With all the injuries on the offensive line, the Texans’ coaching staff has had a chance toward the end of the season to see what some of the younger linemen can do. Davenport started at left tackle in Week 16 and “held his own in there against some good competition,” according to O’Brien. Davenport was a fourth-round pick, but at the time of Customized Jerseys the draft, O’Brien and general manager Rick Smith acknowledged he would need a lot of development before he was a finished product in the NFL. Given that left tackle Chris Clark and right tackle Breno Giacomini are free agents, with a strong offseason and training camp, Davenport could compete for a starting tackle job next season.

Undrafted rookie evaluation: The best player in the Texans’ undrafted class was linebacker Dylan Cole. Houston liked him a lot coming out of the draft, and after Brian Cushing was suspended for 10 games, Cole got off to a good start before he injured his hamstring in Week 5. He has come back from the injury, and contributed on defense and special teams. O’Brien said he has also been impressed by how disruptive wide receiver Chris Thompson has been on special teams.

Matt Patricia makes sense for Arizona Cardinals

If there were any fruit you’d like to pick from inside the NFL’s garden, it most certainly would be one from a Bill Belichick coaching tree.

Since 2000, Belichick has composed, perhaps, one of the greatest stretches of success as a head coach in NFL history. During his 18-year tenure with the Patriots, he’s won 214 regular season games (.743), 15 division titles, 25 playoff wins and 5 Super Bowls titles.

He’s also had quite the NFL coaching tree spout during that time, as well. Belichick, over the years, has groomed the likes of Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, Bill O’brien, Nick Saban and Jim Schwartz.

His latest protege,
Custom Arizona Cardinals Jersey and current defensive coordinator, Matt Patricia, is an up-and-coming star amongst NFL assistants.

The 43-year-old has never played a down in the NFL, but was an offensive lineman in college. He played for the Engineers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Engineering. In other words, he’s a rocket scientist coaching football.

Patricia started with Belichick in 2004 as an offensive assistant, moving in the ranks ever since. Promoted, in 2005, to assistant offensive line coach; then in 2006, to the defensive side of the ball, coaching linebackers until the end of the 2010 season.

In 2011, he bacame the safeties coach. Impressed with his progression, Billichick then made him defensive coordinator in 2012, and has been there ever since, making quite the name for himself.

In 6 years as the DC, Patricia has had a top-10 defense in scoring every year, including first overall in 2016.

With Arians now gone, the Customized Jerseys Cardinals will have some huge shoes to fill. Matt Patricia will fill those quite nicely.

Team President Michael Bidwill has stated that they will do their “due diligence in finding the best head coach to lead this team” moving forward.

A DC who has served as Bill Billichick’s right-hand man, and has won 3 Super Bowl rings in the process, will alleviate any concerns Cardinal fans have about the future of this football club.

Hire Matt Patricia — just make sure there’s enough pencil sharpeners for the rocket scientist and his No. 2 pencil.

Performance Review: Patriots-Jets

I liked New England’s aggressive approach to the start of this game. It began with their uncharacteristic choice to receive the ball after winning the coin toss. Normally, Bill Belichick likes to defer his choice to the second half, to allow for a potential opportunity to score on consecutive possessions on either side of intermission. However, it was clear that the Patriots wanted to jump out to an early lead and not look back, in an effort perhaps to manage the playing time of certain key players.
…OC Josh McDaniels approached the game’s opening drive nicely, mixing in runs and passes liberally, while the offensive line – which had maybe its best game of the season a week ago – blocked well again in both areas.

…New England’s choice to eschew a 40-yard field goal attempt in favor of going for the 1st down on 4th-and-2 from the Jets’ 22-yard line also Customized Baseball Jerseys demonstrated how the Patriots wanted to control this game by quickly building a lead and sitting on it.
WR Danny Amendola, lined up in the slot left, easily got open on a slant for QB Tom Brady (who was in the shotgun). Amendola’s opening was created when the cornerback originally guarding him tightly in man-to-man coverage at the line of scrimmage, Buster Skrine, passed him off to a teammate. This happened because New England’s outside receiver to Amendola’s left, Brandin Cooks, motioned toward the formation and the cornerback guarding him, Justin Burris, followed, but drifted behind his defensive teammate at the line of scrimmage.

Skrine then signaled that he would take Cooks, while Burris should pick up Amendola, but Burris was already at a disadvantage by conceding such a large cushion (about 5 yards) and didn’t take a great angle to close down Amendola over the middle.
…Just like last week, when RB Dion Lewis kept an eventual scoring drive alive by reaching out with the football on a 4th-down rush, he did so again to put New England on the scoreboard first. Lewis has played the best, most confident football of his career these past Customized Jerseys two weeks, and that was on display throughout this game, but particularly on the opening drive as he made several Jets miss him in the open field and gave extra effort on runs like this one for the first touchdown of the day.
…A guy who’s had a quietly good year is DT Lawrence Guy. He’s been solid all

season since joining the squad as a veteran free agent, and he made his presence known on the Jets’ first play when he stuffed RB Bilal Powell for a 1-yard gain. Guy and the d-line had a great day against the run, holding New York to just 40 yards.
…Cooks started off with a pair of catches on the first two balls thrown to him, and while he only hauled in three of the next nine sent his way by Brady, Cooks made a positive impact on this game, as we saw later when he drew penalties against the defenders marking him to keep New England’s possessions alive. The first time this happened came on the third throw of the day to Cooks, when Skrine was flagged for grabbing Cooks during his well-run route. The ball sailed ahead of Cooks and fell to the turf, but the Patriots kept the ball and gained an extra five yards. It wound up being for naught, as New England later punted on the drive, but Cooks has been doing this more frequently as the year unfolded. He’s finding a way to be an asset even when he doesn’t complete a catch.

Men’s New Orleans Saints David Onyemata Pro Line Black Player Jersey

The New Orleans Saints are winning in different ways this year than previously in the Sean Payton and Drew Brees era.

With the Saints having one of the NFL’s top rushing offenses, ranking fifth in yardage and second in yards per attempt, Brees has thrown the ball less than usual this season.

In fact, Brees is on New Orleans Saints Jerseys pace to have his lowest passing yardage total in his 12 seasons with the Saints. Through 15 games, he’s passed for 4,089 yards, an average of 273 yards per game. He’ll need 300 yards in Sunday’s finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to surpass his lowest mark with the Saints, 4,388 yards in 2009.

But, even though Brees’ volume has been down, his efficiency has been outstanding, and more importantly, the Saints (11-4) are heading to the postseason for the first time since 2013. So, coach Sean Payton has no problem with Brees’ reduced yardage.

“We’re not in the Cheap Jerseys business of playing fantasy football,” Payton said Wednesday. “We really aren’t. We’re in the business of winning.

“So, if that upsets all the people that have a player on our offense or defense or somewhere in the fantasy games of the world, then that’s tough. But our job is to win, and that’s probably one of the first criteria that you’re graded at as quarterback. And he knows that.”

Hill, the No. 3 quarterback, played one snap as a wide receiver in Week 16

Brees this year has Cheap nfl Jerseys completed 71.9 percent of his passes, which has him on track to break Sam Bradford’s single-season record of 71.6 percent. The second-most accurate quarterback in the NFL this year is Alex Smith, who is more than four percentage points behind Brees at 67.5 percent.

Brees also ranks third in the league in passer rating at 103.6, which would be his best mark since having a 104.7 rating in 2013.

He’s also Customized Jerseys thrown just eight interceptions, and unless he throws three on Sunday, he’ll have his second-lowest pick total in a season. Part of that is related to Brees throwing less, but Brees has thrown an interception on just 1.6 percent of his passes this year, which is the lowest mark of his career.

So, yes, Brees’ yardage is down this season, but his efficiency overall is about as good as it’s ever been in his 17-year career. And the Saints don’t care about the stats nearly as much as the victories.

A hive mind of about 30 NFL fans predicts the Jaguars will win Sunday.

Men’s Jacksonville Jaguars Blake Bortles Nike Teal Limited Jersey

The Jaguars have their first winning season, their first double-digit win season, and their first playoff berth since their 11-5 campaign in 2007. But how about their first division title since way back in 1999, before the AFC South even existed. But a still Cheap Jerseys bigger prize is a possibility, as two more Jaguars victories and one loss apiece by the 11-3 New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers would be enough to lock all three teams at 12-4, with Jacksonville holding the tiebreaker that would hand them home-field through the AFC side of the playoff bracket. With Blake Bortles red hot at quarterback, Jacksonville might be up to the task, but don’t discount newly arrived 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, as the excessively handsome signal caller has been undefeated in three games as San Francisco’s starter.

To predict the result of this and other games, Unanimous A.I. used what’s known as swarm intelligence to forecast the week’s slate. About 30 NFL fans worked together as a hive mind to make picks. As you can see in the animation below, each participant Cheap nfl Jerseys controlled a little golden magnet and used it to drag the puck toward the answer they thought was the most likely outcome. As the users saw the puck move toward a particular outcome, it triggers a psychological response. They readjust their decision-making, building toward a consensus. Here’s Unanimous A.I. founder Louis Rosenberg explaining swarm intelligence at a recent TEDx Talk.

Unanimous A.I. has Customized Jerseys made some scarily accurate predictions in the past using swarm intelligence, as our previous article explains. For instance, the swarm went a perfect 7-0 in its most recommended picks for an English Premier League slate earlier this season.

Men’s Houston Texans Deshaun Watson Nike Red 2017 Draft Pick Game Jersey

the Houston Texans lost to the Seattle Seahawks, 41-38, a hard-fought game in which rookie QB Deshaun Watson put on an entertaining, four-touchdown, 403-yard performance. Houston was 3-4 but still sat at the edge of the playoff hunt in a weak conference, and Watson had led the offense to close games against competitive teams since taking over the top quarterbacking job at halftime of the season opener from immobile stopgap veteran Tom Savage.

Four days later, Watson tore his ACL in practice. With the injury, the Texans and head coach Bill O’Brien found themselves at a crossroads: Would they return to Savage, or try to find the best quarterback available?

Instead, Houston Texans Jerseys Houston went with a third and fourth option. On Nov. 3, the team brought in not one but two quarterbacks, T.J. Yates and Matt McGloin.

When training camps opened this season without Colin Kaepernick getting a single job offer, a certain tribe of football experts and anonymous front-office sources defended his ongoing unemployment by arguing that he was not good enough to crack an NFL roster—despite a 59.8 completion percentage, 72 career passing touchdowns against 30 interceptions, 13 more touchdowns rushing, and a Super Bowl appearance. The question was whether teams would stick to that stance even as the pool of quarterbacks went through failure and injury attrition.

Men's Houston Texans Deshaun Watson Nike Red 2017 Draft Pick Game Jersey
Men’s Houston Texans Deshaun Watson Nike Red 2017 Draft Pick Game Jersey

The Texans Cheap Jerseys stuck with it. Yates had 227 pass attempts, a 58.1 completion percentage, and six passing touchdowns to eight interceptions in his first six seasons in the NFL—but four of those seasons were in a Texans uniform, and he’d even started a 2011 playoff game (completing 11 passes against the Bengals in a 31-10 victory). McGloin, in four seasons with the Raiders, had 277 pass attempts, a 58.1 completion percentage, and 11 passing TDs to 11 picks—but O’Brien had coached him at Penn State.

Familiarity, albeit familiar mediocrity, won out. At least for a moment. Four days after these signings, the Texans released McGloin for Josh Johnson, who hadn’t thrown a pass in a regular-season game since he was with the Buccaneers in 2011.

Savage reclaimed his starting gig by default. Over his next five starts, he threw for five touchdowns and six interceptions, completing 56.5 percent of his passes. The Texans went 1-4. Savage was thoroughly annihilated by Elvis Dumervil and twitched on the ground in Cheap nfl Jerseys Week 14, against the 49ers. Somehow, he was allowed to return to the game for a few more plays before Yates appeared in his stead. Yates contributed 175 yards and two TDs as the Texans finished up a 26-16 loss, giving San Francisco their third win of the season.

Yates started Sunday against the Jaguars, who demolished Houston, 45-7. He completed 38.7 percent of his passes. Savage’s season is almost certainly over after he was checked for a concussion in Week 14. The Texans are 4-10 for the year, and 1-6 since they decided to fill their quarterback vacancy by signing Yates and McGloin. Johnson was released on Nov. 21. O’Brien, who has coached the team for four seasons, is in serious danger of losing his job. On Monday, he vowed that owner Bob McNair would have to fire him to get rid of him:

The Texans’ season was probably beyond any one person’s power to save. Beyond Watson, the Texans lost players on offense such as left tackle Chris Clark, running back D’Onta Foreman, receiver Bruce Ellington, tight end Ryan Griffin, and tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz, Customized Jerseys among others. Colin Kaepernick wouldn’t have healed those injuries or otherwise guaranteed improvement. But given Houston’s quarterback decisions, and the results the Texans got from them, it had to have been worth a shot.

The Green Bay Packers will re-sign backup quarterback Joe Callahan, a source told ESPN on Monday.

Callahan was released on Saturday to make room for Aaron Rodgers, who was activated off injured reserve.

The signing did not appear on the NFL transaction list Monday because Callahan had to clear waivers first. That means the Packers do not have to Green Bay Packers Jerseys make a corresponding roster move until it becomes official, likely on Tuesday.

It could mean the Cheap Jerseys Packers are considering shutting down Rodgers if they’re out of playoff contention, which would happen if the Falcons beat Tampa Bay on Monday Night Football. However, the Packers like Callahan as a developmental prospect, so the move could have been in their plans all along after he cleared waivers.

Callahan entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2016 and also has spent time on both the Saints’ and Browns’ rosters before Cheap nfl Jerseys returning to Green Bay.

Coach Mike McCarthy was noncommittal when asked after Sunday’s loss at Carolina whether Rodgers would play Saturday against the Minnesota Vikings if the Packers were out of the playoff race.

Sunday marked Rodgers’ first game since he underwent surgery to repair a broken right collarbone two months ago. He threw three touchdown Customized Jerseys passes but also had his first three-interception game since 2009.

The Packers also worked out two quarterbacks on Monday: veteran Matt McGloin and rookie Garrett Fugate.

Men’s Dallas Cowboys Ezekiel Elliott Nike Olive Salute To Service Limited Jersey

The minute after that he’s putting the team on his back, carrying an offense with his arm and his legs during the first eight games of the 2017 season. He’s the bomb.
Then three games later, after a 5-3 start, Dak is limited, can’t play without Ezekiel Elliott, who was suspended for six games, accused of violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Why, suddenly he’s no more than a complementary quarterback, and without Zeke, well, he just can’t play since the Cowboys lost the first three games during his suspension, scoring no more than nine points in any of those outings.
Then, voila, the Dallas Cowboys Jerseys Cowboys win two straight, scoring at least 30 points in each of those victories, and now the narrative does a 180.

Men's Dallas Cowboys Ezekiel Elliott Nike Olive Salute To Service Limited Jersey
Men’s Dallas Cowboys Ezekiel Elliott Nike Olive Salute To Service Limited Jersey

Overnight, Dak has learned to play without Zeke. Uh, like took him four-and-three-quarters games to figure all this out, and in the fourth quarter of the 30-10 victory over the New York Giants suddenly this all miraculously kicked in, Dak leading the Cowboys to a 20-point quarter, the most they’ve scored in a fourth quarter all season long.
Seriously, 37 degrees to 70 in the blink of an eye?
Good thing Dak is Cheap Jerseys mature beyond his 24 years. None of this seems to bother him. He understands this all comes with the quarterbacking dinner. He knows more than you know, and he’s pretty sly, answering questions diplomatically without being contentious, yet parring narratives he knows deep down are B.S.
Same with Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett.
So, by late Monday afternoon, here came the latest narrative: Did Dak finally figure out how to perform admirably without Zeke on the field? The Cowboys beat the Redskins, 38-14, and then came back 10 days later to thump the Giants, 30-10, even though the game still was tied, 10-10, midway through the fourth quarter.
Like that light bulb finally came on right there in the fourth quarter?
You guys, please.
Garrett was asked the same on Monday: So has Dak finally learned how to play without Zeke on the field? He, too, deftly parried the question, and unless you listened carefully, you might have missed that he didn’t exactly agree with the premise.
“I think the Cheap nfl Jerseys most important thing for everybody is to be your best regardless of what the circumstances are,” Garrett began. “Obviously, Zeke is a really good football player and makes everybody around him better. I would make the same argument about Dak. He’s a really good player and he continues to grow week after week, and I think the guys around him have done a really nice job the last couple of weeks. He has certainly played well and played very well in the ballgame on Sunday.”
Are we listening? Because if we are, Garrett certainly wasn’t agreeing with the latest narrative, but politely so.
Neither was Dak when asked about his five-game learning curve, that suddenly everything clicked in that final quarter against the Giants.
“It’s a different thing, and I think that is the first thing you’ve got to recognize,” he said of playing without Zeke. “It’s not the same. It’s going to be different, play calls are going to be different. And for what I’ve learned, I guess, everybody is embracing Customized Jerseys their role – their new role, their different role or maybe it’s the same role. But they are embracing it, and everybody is wanting to step up and make a play, not looking for another guy to make it.”

Men’s Cleveland Browns Malcolm Johnson Pro Line Brown Player Jersey

The Cleveland Browns had plenty of confidence that after winning every game in the preseason, the success would carry over to the 2017 regular season. However, that has proven to be anything but the case.

With Sunday’s 27-21 overtime loss to the Green Bay Packers at FirstEnergy Stadium, the Browns dropped to 0-13 for the second consecutive year, something that no one within the organization thought would happen because of the commitment to improvement from the coaches and players during the offseason program, training camp and the preseason.

“Nobody thought that we would be having this record that we have, but we can’t sit here and complain about it, sulk and hang our head about it,” Cleveland Browns Jerseys
linebacker Christian Kirksey said. “We just have to do something to get more wins for this city, and we will continue to try to find our way. That is what we are going to do.”

With their 13th consecutive loss during the 2017 season, the Browns dropped to a league-worst 1-28 since the opening game of 2016.

The Browns have not won on a Sunday afternoon since December 13, 2015. The 30 straight Sunday losses are an NFL record, and their 4-46 mark in the last 50 outings is the worst in the league in that four-year span.

Additionally, the Cheap Jerseys Browns’ losing streak currently stands at 354 days, as their last victory came on December 24, 2016.

“You definitely don’t walk into the season thinking you are going to go 0-13,” offensive lineman Joel Bitonio said. “You take it one week at a time as a player. Each week, you try to get the win. Unfortunately, for us this year, the losses have piled up. It is tough. It really sucks.

“We are doing Cheap nfl Jerseys everything on our part to try to be better and try to get those wins. I think you have seen promise the last quarter of the season, but it doesn’t matter on the win-loss record. It is really unfortunate, but I know the guys in the locker room and I know the coach, we are going to fight and do everything we can this week in practice to try to get this win against Baltimore.”

Although the Browns have had their struggles, the veterans in the locker room are confident the team will recover from a “heartbreaker” against the Green Bay Packers, who were down by 14 points with 13 minutes to play before scoring 20 straight to secure the come-from-behind win in overtime.

“It is the National Football League,” Kirksey said. “There is no time to be sad and hang your head about it. You just have to be a man and keep chopping that wood. That is what we are going to do. The wins will come.

“As long as we Customized Jerseys know we did everything in our power, individually and collectively, to go out there and win, then it will happen, but right now, we are just going through some growing pains. We just have to stay together, stay the course and believe in each other.”

Men’s Cincinnati Bengals Christian Westerman Pro Line Black Player Jersey

The Bengals put on one of their most listless performances in years in a 33-7 loss to the Bears on Sunday afternoon.

It seemed clear that the Bengals left everything they had on the field in a loss to the Steelers on Monday. Maybe they were still recovering from the emotionally and physically draining game. Maybe they simply couldn’t handle losing five defensive starters this week.

Whatever it was, it was clear the Bengals (5-8) were simply not prepared to face the Bears (4-9). It certainly isn’t a good look for Bengals coach Marvin Lewis and his staff. Lewis has always seemed to have the ability to keep his teams invested, even when there was little to play for, but the team looked as if it would rather be anywhere else on Sunday.

Even the usually reliable A.J. Green, the best player on the team, wasn’t playing at his usual level. Green dropped one pass and had another tipped off his hands for an interception. He was also stripped of the ball late in the game with the Bengals trailing by several touchdowns.

The linebackers, down starters Nick Vigil and Vontaze Burfict, looked like they were moving in slow motion, allowing Jordan Howard to gash them on the ground. Howard had 147 rushing yards alone.

They missed tackle after tackle. At one point, with Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky heading into the end zone for a touchdown, Bengals safety George Iloka appeared to not even attempt to make the tackle at the goal line.

The offense, Cheap nfl Jerseys which looked like it had finally put things together last week, was back to its early-season form. Even the timing looked off. A short pass to Tyler Boyd was so off that it raised questions as to whether there had been a miscommunication about where Boyd was supposed to be on the field.

The only bright spots of the day were the play of running back Giovani Bernard and cornerback William Jackson III, two players who saw the field sporadically earlier in the season in favor of other starters. Bernard had 130 all-purpose yards, but he seemed to be the only one playing with any effort.

The Bengals are Customized Jerseys crawling toward the finish line of the 2017 season, and with Sunday’s loss, will finish without a winning second for the second straight year. It certainly clouds the future of Lewis, who went into the season without a new contract and is by no means guaranteed to get a new deal in 2018.

The Bengals used to win these games. In Lewis’ tenure, the Bengals are 23-6 in the final quarter of the season against teams with a losing record. But on Sunday, the Bengals made the Bears look like a team headed for the playoffs. They allowed the worst offense in the league to put up almost 500 total yards and 33 points, both season highs.

How the team Cincinnati Bengals Jerseys performs in the last three games of the season will certainly go a long way toward deciding the future of the coaching staff, but the Bears were the easiest team left on the schedule. The Bengals still must travel to face the Vikings and the Ravens. If they play like they did on Sunday, the score could be even uglier than a 26-point loss at home.
