Both Trufant and Falcons want him to get in on postseason fun

When last the Falcons made a stirring playoff climb, all the way to the top of the Super Bowl 10-meter platform, they were without one of their defensive cornerstones. , where a belly flop awaited

a torn pectoral muscle to be precise. His heart was only slightly less torn.,Cornerback Desmond Trufant’s chest was broken

“I was living through my teammates,” he recalled. “It was hard not being out there. It was definitely difficult. I was living through them, helping in any way I could. I was still part of it; I just wasn’t out there.”, enjoying the moment

vicarious experience does not even rank with the real thing.,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey,The playoffs are like romance. A virtual

Finally, the Falcons designated shut-down corner,Authentic Ziggy Ansah Jersey, got his first taste of playoff football last week in Los Angeles.,womens Matthew Stafford Jersey, the one this team thought enough of to sign to a five-year, $69 million extension last spring

this is what all the fuss was about. ,womens Marvin Jones Jr Jersey,So

” he said.,“Now I got the opportunity to take it as far as we can. I’m excited about that

A year ago at this time,Authentic Kenny Clark Jersey, as Trufant healed,Authentic Kyler Fackrell Jersey, about six fewer points per game than a season ago., the Falcons made their run on the strength of a touchdown-mad offense. Their identity has been significantly altered now. They are allowing nearly 53 fewer average yards per game both in total defense and passing defense. And most important

As the new contract illustrated,womens Kyler Fackrell Jersey, Trufant is vital to the Falcons’ overall defensive scheme, throwing himself into a chore that some at his position have been known to shirk. , his coverage abilities allowing them all kinds of flexibility in play-calling. He is at his best when he can physically man-up with a wide-out, and is often matched up against an opponent’s best. And he is a sincere tackler

That’s especially notable when it’s tackling that results in things like torn chest muscles or a concussion (Trufant missed one game this season after colliding with a teammate on a group tackle). “Tackling is second nature. Like riding a bike, you just do it. Even if you fall on a bike you just keep riding it. Once you’re out there you’re just playing. You go back to whatever your instincts are, when asked if he might be getting a little weary of the collision part of the game.,” he said

the difference he should make in the Falcons’ defense now that he is sound is profound.,In theory

very visible coverage breakdowns is the puzzle.,That he has been the subject of a couple of recentwomens Ziggy Ansah Jersey,

There was Ted Ginn Jr. running past him for 54-yard touchdown in a loss to New Orleans the day before Christmas.

And just last week, many of those at Trufant’s expense.,womens Barry Sanders Jersey,L.A.’s Robert Woods caught nine passes for 142 yards

All of which raises the question of how close Trufant is to his 2015 Pro Bowl form. As you would expect of a defender, he is comfortable when on the defense. ,Authentic Matthew Stafford Jersey, especially one living on the edge as does a cornerback

When asked the current state of his play,Authentic Marvin Jones Jr Jersey,Authentic Darius Slay Jr Jersey, “I think I’m solid.”, Trufant said

“There are definitely some plays I would take back,womens Darius Slay Jr Jersey,Authentic Jason Spriggs Jersey, but that’s just the life of a corner at times. Sometimes you’re 100 percent, try to win more than I lose at the end of the day.,womens Kenny Clark Jersey,womens Jason Spriggs Jersey, sometimes you’re 50 percent. I just try to stay consistent

“I do (have short memory) but it still kills you to give up anything. At the end of the day it’s a long game. They are going to make some plays, when it’s the best of the best. I just try to compete and leave my mark on the game.”, you are going to make some plays. Especially at this point of the season

This week, Trufant just might be favored in that match-up. , against the Eagles backup quarterback Nick Foles and most likely his 789-yard receiver Alshon Jeffery

All indicators are that this is supposed to be when the best of Trufant is on display.

Why tagging Sammy Watkins makes sense for Rams

a mark topped by 90 others in the NFL., Sammy Watkins' first season with the Los Angeles Rams was productive but unspectacular. He stayed healthy throughout but finished with only 593 receiving yards. He scored eight touchdowns but drew just 67 targets

Watkins believes he would "most definitely" have a greater role in the offense if given another year to work with Jared Goff.

he throws to his guys,"I just think he got on a roll with the guys that he had during OTAs, and once a guy is used to throwing it to someone else,womens Sammy Watkins Jersey, or maybe another year.",Authentic Cam Newton Jersey," Watkins said. "It's just part of the game where you need more time

and tagging him seems to make a lot of sense for the Rams.,Authentic Luke Kuechly Jersey,Watkins has now completed his rookie deal

The Rams gave up a 2018 second-round pick and a valuable depth piece,Authentic Kawann Short Jersey, cornerback E.J. Gaines,Authentic Greg Olsen Jersey, given his injury history and recent production., to snag Watkins away from the Buffalo Bills in the middle of August. They would like to keep him for more than one season. But they would probably be hard-pressed to commit to anything long-term at this point

One potential issue: whether to give Watkins a franchise tag or a transition tag.

a pending free agent the Rams are hopeful of signing to a long-term contract.,womens Thomas Davis Sr Jersey,Another: whether they'll instead have to tag safety Lamarcus Joyner

and only one can be used each offseason.,The window to tag players lasts from Feb. 20 to March 6

The franchise tag pays the average of the top five salaries at players' respective positions. For wide receivers last year, that figure was $15.8 million. But if the nonexclusive franchise tag is used -- a more common approach -- the original team gets two first-round picks as compensation if it chooses not to match an outside offer. The transition tag costs less money, and the original team gets nothing in return if it declines to match an outside offer., as the average of the top 10 at a player's position. But players are free to negotiate with other teams

Watkins put up pedestrian numbers this past season, but he still has the ability of a No. 1 receiver. And the market at his position doesn't seem all that strong this offseason, Allen Robinson and Terrelle Pryor among the best of the potential unrestricted free agents., with Jarvis Landry

Whether it's a franchise tag or a transition tag, can rebuild value after combining for 1,Authentic Sammy Watkins Jersey,Authentic Mike Tolbert Jersey, however,womens Mike Tolbert Jersey,023 yards in 23 games over the past two seasons. And the Rams will have another year with a major vertical threat who opens the middle of the field for Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp,womens Cam Newton Jersey, all while letting the younger Josh Reynolds and Mike Thomas develop.,womens Luke Kuechly Jersey, both sides would be better served with another year together. Watkins,womens Kawann Short Jersey,still only 24

Sean McVay agrees the Rams can get more out of Watkins in 2018.womens Greg Olsen Jersey,

"Absolutely we feel like we can figure out a way,Authentic Thomas Davis Sr Jersey,whether it be the slants or some of those fade-type stop routes where you just see how strong he is and the aggressive-type hands to be able to attack the football. So, and I've got to do a better job of utilizing his skill set,womens Vernon Butler Jersey, yes, I do think we can use him better."," McVay said. "Great hands, he can stretch the field. But you see the ability to finish on some of those underneath routes

then added 82 yards and a score in a close win against the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. Aside from that,Watkins had a big game in Week 3, torching the San Francisco 49ers for 106 yards and two touchdowns. He caught a 67-yard touchdown pass against the New York Giants in Week 9, Watkins was a bit player on an offense that helped the Rams lead the NFL in points., thoughAuthentic Vernon Butler Jersey,

Morell's Stephen Anderson relishing opportunity to play against national juniors

With exam period upon most university students, and Atlantic University Sport and U Sports seasons in their traditional December break, most student-athletes are enjoying some down time.

but not all.,Authentic Eric Weddle Jersey,Most

There is little down time for Stephen Anderson of Morell and Randy Gazzola of Thorold,Authentic C.J. Mosley Jersey, Ont., of the UNB Varsity Reds men’s hockey team.

They’ve joined a team of U Sports all-stars in St. Catharines,Authentic Marlon Humphrey Jersey, for a pair of games against the national junior team hopefuls.

“It’s a big honour, last year,womens Cardale Jones Jersey,” said Anderson. “Phil and Jordan, said it was a really good experience, so when we heard about it, we were thrilled and excited.”

Former Varsity Reds Phil Maillet and Jordan Murray were part of last year’s U Sports all-star team that took on the 2017 national junior team prospects.

“Looking at our roster, there’s guys from Saskatchewan and Alberta. Our team is going to have some good players, there’s guys from the AUS,” said Anderson. “There’s a lot of first and second round NHL picks on the world junior team roster, and they’re trying to make a team, but I think it’ll be two highly competitive games and it should be a lot of fun.”

maybe even more so.,Gazzola is equally as excited

St. Catharines is a stone’s throw from his hometown of Thorold.

In fact, the town of about 18,000 people is contributing more than its share this week.

I’ll have close to a hundred people there,womens Reggie Ragland Jersey,my hometown,” said Gazzola. “It’ll be fast. That’s just kind of the way the NHL is going now and all those kids are drafted to the NHL for a reason. They all have skill and they can all move the puck and skate. I expect it to be fast,Authentic Ronald Darby Jerseyand they’re trying to make a team. If I were trying out for the junior team, I wouldn’t be holding back whatsoever.”

such as spots on the U Sports all-star teams.,Varsity Reds head coach Gardiner MacDougall of Bedeque says his program has been fortunate to have been provided special opportunities,womens Adolphus Washington Jersey,

“Stephen and Randy have certainly earned this selection by their play in the first half of the AUS season,” said the coach of the two-time, defending U Sports men’s hockey champions. “Stephen has high-end skill with terrific speed and has been one of our most improved players, so this experience of playing the top upcoming players in our country will certainly challenge him to get to a new level of performance.”

“Randy has a great deal of experience at the Memorial Cup and three U Sports national championships, so this is a tremendous occasion for him to play in front of family and friends in his home town area,” said MacDougall.Authentic Cardale Jones Jersey,

both players recognize they’re playing a small role in what’s become a holiday season tradition for Canadian hockey fans.,On top of the experience

” said Gazzola,“It’s definitely something that I’ve looked forward to every year, of the World Junior Hockey Championship. “It’s been a good way to end the year, especially when Canada does well, then you’re up and you’re going into next year happy.”

Texans' D'Onta Foreman tears Achilles, done for season

Grabbing the back of his left leg in the end zone Sunday afternoon, Texans rookie running back D'Onta Foreman simultaneously experienced the agony of a ruptured Achilles tendon and the joy of scoring the second touchdown of his NFL career.

The Texas City native and third-round draft pick from Texas suffered a season-ending injury during the end of a 34-yard touchdown jaunt that sealed a 31-21 victory against the Arizona Cardinals. A magnetic resonance imaging exam will be conducted Monday to confirm the initial diagnosis about Foreman's Achilles,Authentic Pat Tillman Jersey, which will require surgery to repair the damage. He'll be placed on injured reserve.

"It was a bittersweet day,Authentic Larry Fitzgerald Jersey," Foreman said in the locker room after the game while on crutches.

the first score of his career,Foreman rushed for 65 yards on 10 carries. His 3-yard touchdown run,womens Patrick Peterson Jersey, earlier in the game represented the game-winning score. He finished the season with 327 yards on 78 carries.

but he'll come back strong and keep working hard for next year,womens David Johnson Jersey," said Derrick Foreman,womens Karlos Dansby Jersey,"It's unfortunate what happened to D'Onta, D'Onta Foreman's father. "D'Onta showed what he can do as a rookie and he'll continue to work to improve and build on this season. I'm proud of him."

following season-ending injuries to Deshaun Watson,Authentic Deion Jones Jersey,Foreman becomes the latest Texan to be lost for the season, J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus.

As Foreman was carted off the field, the crowd at NRG Stadium chanted his name.

"I just wanted to get something started," Foreman said of his second touchdown. "I felt like in the first half I didn't really play like I wanted to play. I knew in the second half I just had to go out there and try to make some plays and try to help us win the game and I feel like I did that."

Teammates were extremely disappointed about the loss of Foreman.

" wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins said. "For him to go in there and get two touchdowns, to make the best of his opportunities,"You can't ask anything else from a rookie running back that doesn't get a lot of carries, is good. For what happened to him,womens Pat Tillman Jersey, that sucks."

Texans J.J. Watt Looking to Next Year with Deshaun Watson

looking forward to what is ahead for a franchise that saw some of its top talent hanging out in the training room,After a season during which the Houston Texans set an NFL record with 78 different players used in a single season, J.J. Watt is excited for 2018, rehabbing from their respective injuries.

Watt spent plenty of time with quarterback Deshaun Watson over the season and the presence of the exciting, young quarterback has Watt ready for 2018.

obviously,“Very excited, very excited about the future ahead,” Watt said on locker clean out day Monday at NRG Stadium. “It’s a good to have a quarterback and looking forward to moving forward and having a great year.”

but also a rejuvenated fire in players,Watson and Watt would give any team hope for the upcoming season and, with Watt coming back from a fractured fibula plateau and Watson rehabbing from a torn ACL, knowing that the off-season will come and the 2018 season will be here in a flash, there was a sense of relief from teammates that the season was over, bringing with it new hope and the promise of what could lie ahead.

who has the potential and has the abilities he has,womens Vince Biegel Jersey,“Yeah, we have won a few division titles with like 15 different quarterbacks,Authentic Davon House Jersey, of course, so if we have one quarterback who is back there who can play the way that he plays,womens Jahri Evans Jersey,” Watt explained. “I think he has great potential. We are really excited to see what he can do with a full season. I’m definitely excited to have a franchise quarterback.”

The Texans were not the same team when Watson went out and could not recover on offense. With Watson starting,womens Dean Lowry Jersey, the Texans were putting up over 35.1 points per game and by the end of the season without Watson, the offense only averaged 13.7 points a game. That small snapshot gave Watt and the Texans the perspective they needed to see that there is more out there.

with that idea that success is on the horizon,Authentic Dean Lowry Jersey,womens Lane Taylor Jersey,“I think the thing that you can see is there’s a confidence there, that the best is yet to come,Authentic Lane Taylor Jersey,” Watt said of Watson. “When you have more and more and more guys with that confidence, that’s when it starts to permeate throughout the whole team. You can’t just have one guy. You can’t just have two or three. You have to have that start to permeate throughout the whole team.”

The Present And Future Of The Texans’ Offensive Line

The Houston Texans are a mess, the strength of the team was their offensive line. Once their preseason line composed of Duane Brown-Xavier Su’a-Filo-Ben Jones-Brandon Brooks-Derek Newton become their actual line against Cincinnati, and so is their offensive line. In the 2015 season, they began churning defensive lines and gave Brian Hoyer plenty of time to be mediocre.

Since the end of that season, where he has been a better player there than he was in Houston. Smith opted to sign Jeff Allen over retaining Brandon Brooks. In the draft, things have fallen apart. Rick Smith let the average Ben Jones walk to Tennessee, they selected Nick Martin in the second round; Martin missed his entire rookie year with an ankle injury and was replaced by Greg Mancz. Really good became mediocre last season.

things continued to decay. The Texans had a Week One offensive line of Kendall Lamm-Xavier Su’a-Filo-Nick Martin-Jeff Allen-Breno Giacomini. This unit allowed ten sacks to Jacksonville. Tom Savage didn’t help things,This season, but it was poor planning by the entire team as a whole. Savage takes forever to scan through his reads and moves like the DMV. It was impossible to expect anything out of him with his tackles being Lamm and Giacomini and his guards being Su’a-Filo and Allen. To start Savage Week One required a great pass blocking offensive line. The Texans didn’t have one.,Authentic Kyle Van Noy Jersey,

Lamm was benched for Chris Clark. The worst tackle I’ve ever seen play in the NFL was replaced with a replacement level player. Ever since then,In the middle of that game, Houston’s offensive line has been constantly reshuffled.womens Rex Burkhead Jersey

The Texans have had eleven offensive linemen play offensive snaps--Breno Giacomini (100%),Authentic Nate Solder Jersey, Su’a-Filo (98%), Chris Clark (55.4%),Authentic Trey Flowers Jersey, Nick Martin (98.4%), Greg Mancz (45.8%),Authentic Mike Gillislee Jersey, Juli’en Davenport (13.1%),Authentic Shaq Mason Jersey, Duane Brown (6.9%), Chade Slade (5.7%),womens Shaq Mason Jersey, Jeff Allen (73.9%), Kendall Lamm (16.1%), and Kyle Fuller (4.5%). Together this bunch has been putrid at pass blocking, allowing a combined 45 sacks, and they have been below average at run blocking all season.

the Texans face a lot of uncertainty next season across their roster, with the health of J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus, and of course the offensive line. Next season the Texans have Jeff Allen, the tight end position,Currently, Derek Newton, Kendall Lamm, Julie’n Davenport, Kyle Fuller, the entire secondary, and Chade Slade under contract. That’s it. Clark, Nick Martin, Su’a-Filo, Giacomini, and Mancz are all free agents after this season.,Authentic Rex Burkhead Jersey,

Su’a-Filo has reached the end of his rookie contract. Because of his pass block whiffs and refusal to grab the chest and block at the second level, but it would be on a short deal. Giacomini has played 100% of the offensive snaps this season, and that is something that shouldn’t happen. Mancz could start at center for this team, but with Martin, he will probably be gone. Clark is below average and could stay, he isn’t needed. He can play guard in a different offense as an outside zone blocker who needs to reach ‘3’ techniques and get to the second level. Mancz doesn’t fit as a guard in this scheme. Of these free agents,womens Nate Solder JerseyClark and Mancz are the only guys who could maybe come back.

As far as the players on the roster, oddly enough,womens Trey Flowers Jersey,Allen has been terrible in Houston as a right guard. He was serviceable as a left tackle, as long as you don’t think about the number of penalties he has to commit to even be decent. Newton hasn’t played since Von Miller tore both his knees on a single pass rush in 2016. He missed the majority of last year and all of this year. It’s possible he could play next year. Martin has been great since coming back from ankle surgery. Yet his health is in question again next year,womens Mike Gillislee Jersey,Authentic Chris Hogan Jersey,womens Kyle Van Noy Jersey,Authentic David Andrews Jersey, as he suffered a pretty severe ankle injury in last week’s loss to Jacksonville and has since been placed on IR.

Indianapolis,Nothing is certain regarding these players next season. The Texans are going to have to improve their roster through free agency and compete with teams like Cleveland,womens Chris Hogan Jersey,womens David Andrews Jersey, and San Francisco for players because of their lack of a first and second round pick. The Texans can save $5 million by cutting and Allen and save $4 million by cutting Newton. It’s more than likely both are released this spring.

and he was already limited in this area before his injury. The exact details of Martin’s injury haven’t been released. All that’s known is he’s suffered an ankle injury after he missed all of last season because of an injury to the same part of the body. If he is forced to miss an extended amount of time in 2018,Allen is horrendous. Newton is coming back from two injuries that zap mobility, it will open the door for Mancz to be re-signed.

Based off everything, the only possible fill-in I see is Davenport at one of the tackle spots. I liked him coming out of college, but he didn’t have the strength to play in the NFL this season. Another year of pushing metal around can cure that, the Texans could see four different starters on their offensive line next year. The 2018 line looks like ???-???-Martin/Mancz-???-???. The entire unit is in shambles. As of right now, and he does have the feet and arms to play in the NFL. Other than that, I don’t see another potential starter on this offensive line.

The Texans are currently 4-10. They are probably going to finish 5-11. The easy narrative is that with Deshaun Watson, Whitney Mercilus, and others back, the Texans will automatically leap back into the playoff picture. But things are far from certain. This team has holes everywhere. The division will again be better than it was this year. Offensively, J.J. Watt, the scheme that worked so well with Watson this year will need to evolve even further next season. This team is facing numerous questions entering this offseason, and the offensive line is no different.

Seahawks to make more changes to offensive line this offseason.

For the many who believe Germain Ifedi is part of the problem and not the solution to the Seahawks’ offensive-line issues for 2018, turn your head.

“Ifedi will be a second-year tackle for the first time,womens Kyle Van Noy Jersey,” coach Pete Carroll said this week.

He was listing that as one of his reasons for enthusiasm and optimism that Seattle can get right back to the playoffs next season. They are missing them now for the first time in six years.

Yes,womens David Andrews Jersey, the coach is implying Germain Ifedi will be Seattle’s starting right tackle again next season.

Ifedi’s debut season as the Seahawks’ right tackle was not a reason for enthusiasm and optimism.Authentic Chris Hogan Jersey

to get outside and stay ahead of faster edge pass rushers. Sometimes he caught called for it, total flags (20) and penalty yards given away (120) while starting all 16 games. He had nine false starts, also the most in the NFL. He could have been called for twice that amount. He continually tried to get a head start by getting out of his stance a half second before the snap,The team’s top draft choice in 2016 was the league’s most-penalized player in 2017. He led the league in number of accepted fouls (16), many other times he did not.,Authentic David Andrews Jersey,

Ifedi had eight holding penalties. That was second-most in the league. He particularly struggled holding on too long and grabbing defenders as quarterback Russell Wilson scrambled outside of him to avoid the constant stream of pass rushers that had beaten Ifedi’s linemates, or Ifedi.

this is about protecting your team. That’s in all phases. You have to have a conscience about you about doing the right thing, I really do,” offensive line coach Tom Cable said last month when asked about Ifedi’s penalties. “We’ve talked about it. We addressed it again today. And really,“I think it’s about maturity, and that’s really where it ends.”

aside from the flags,Asked if Ifedi was playing well,womens Nate Solder Jersey, Cable said on Dec. 13: “Yeah.”

Ifedi spent his rookie season starting at right guard, and it was a struggle both in pass protection and run blocking. The team moved him outside to right tackle at the start of training camp last summer. The idea was familiarity will lead to success; Ifedi was a right tackle at Texas A&M through 2015.

to foreshadow Ifedi will again be the right tackle when real games resume in eight months.,Authentic Rex Burkhead Jersey, Carroll took the second day of the Seahawks’ earliest offseason in six years,Then Tuesday,womens Mike Gillislee Jersey,womens Shaq Mason Jersey, after the first non-playoff season since 2011

of his coaches,Ifedi knows all eyes have been on him--the eyes of game officials who know he gets flagged a lot,womens Chris Hogan Jersey, his fan base.

Of his penalties, he said last month: “You have to do that much more right. The goal is to be right.,Authentic Kyle Van Noy Jersey,

“As a collective group, we are trying to clean up the penalties. We are just focusing on getting right. We really have to have an attention to detail.”Authentic Shaq Mason Jersey,

This offseason, the Seahawks’ offensive line that went through five iterations of starting lineups during the 2017 season will change yet again. It has to. The Seahawks can’t even begin Carroll’s stated top goal of returning to a running game until they fix the line that could not provide lanes through which to run in 2017.,womens Rex Burkhead Jersey,

when the pass protection was so bad it got Wilson a severely sprained knee and badly sprained ankle in the first three games. The Seahawks’ O-line allowed 43 sacks in 2017, Seattle allowed Wilson to get hit 121 times this past season, third-most in the league. It was 10 more hits than in 2016,Plus, 11th-most in the NFL and one more than it gave up in 2016.Authentic Trey Flowers Jersey,

and almost assuredly will. Seattle can’t afford more of what Joeckel gave it in 2017: 11 games played and five games missed because of another knee surgery,Authentic Nate Solder Jersey,Starting left guard Luke Joeckel can become a free agent,womens Trey Flowers Jerseyafter his reconstructive one in October 2016 ended his final season with Jacksonville. The Seahawks paid Joeckel $7 million guaranteed for that.

likely for the final time,I asked Joeckel on his way out of the locker room Monday,Authentic Mike Gillislee Jerseyif he had gotten any indication from the general manager John Schneider or any Seahawks they’d want to bring him back.

Johnathan Joseph desires to continue career with Texans

For seven years with the Texans, veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph has built a legacy by shadowing opponents' best receivers.

"I don't even think about it. I've been in this league a long time. I just leave it up to the people upstairs and my representatives."

Joseph said he doesn't necessarily need to test the marketplace. He'd prefer to be proactive and hammer out a deal with the Texans as he prepares for his 14th NFL season.

Brandon Marshall,Denver’s defensive body of work owes much to its brains

In Marshall’s first three seasons as the “defensive QB” the Broncos finished third,womens Christian Kirksey Jersey, Denver is back atop that metric heading into Week 16 against Washington.,womens Haloti Ngata Jersey, first and fourth in total defense (yards allowed) respectively. After strong showings against the Jets and Colts

taking a big leap during the 2015 Super Bowl campaign.,Marshall’s leadership has grown over the years,womens Golden Tate III Jersey,

but I can say he’s there now. His play and his actions,“Brandon has been a leader throughout the course of the season,” former head coach Gary Kubiak said ahead of the playoff run that would end in a Super Bowl 50 victory. “He’s played extremely well—he and [ILB] Danny [Trevathan] inside. I don’t know if Brandon started the season as one of our big leaders on defense, the way he handles himself, he’s come a long way.”Authentic Christian Kirksey Jersey,

when Marshall made the following comment about being the on-field play-caller:,That growth was evident early in the season,Authentic Joel Bitonio Jersey

“I make the calls. I wish I could call my own number but I can’t do that, referencing a game-sealing strip sack by now-former Broncos safety T.J. Ward.,womens Joe Schobert Jersey,” the linebacker said after a 2015 win over the VikingsAuthentic Haloti Ngata Jersey,

but Marshall has had more than his share of opportunities to make big plays over the years.,Authentic Britton Colquitt Jersey,Deferring to other playmakers on the defense is part of the job when wearing the green dot

but he’s rebounded nicely in 2017 and is again on pace to lead the team in both categories.,womens Jamar Taylor Jersey,He led the team in solo tackles (77) in 2015 and ranked second in combined tackles (102). He was first in both categories (91/113) in 2014. An injury last season limited Marshall’s numbers (39/52) in his 11 games (10 starts)

In fact,womens Joel Bitonio Jersey,65 solo) and three sacks. He’s also on pace to play a career-high snap percentage at 93.1 after dropping to 75.3 percent in 2016., Marshall is one of only four NFL players in 2017 with at least 90 combined tackles (he’s currently at 92womens Britton Colquitt Jersey,

It’s no surprise that Denver’s defense is back atop the league rankings with Marshall back on the field full-time and fully healthy.Authentic Golden Tate III Jersey,

Marshall played a huge role last Sunday in Denver’s dominant performance against the New York Jets, a sack and a forced fumble. It was the first time in more than 12 years a Broncos team had held an opponent scoreless. They became just the fifth team in the last 17 years to pitch a shutout and hold their opponent to less than 100 yards of total offense., recording a team-high seven tackles (six solo)Authentic Ricardo Louis Jersey,

” Marshall said postgame. “They said it had been 12 years or something close to that,“This is a special day for the whole team, especially for the defense, that is a long time. For us to come out here and give a boost,Authentic Joe Schobert Jersey,it was great. We were hitting on all cylinders from the first play.”

While Denver’s offense and special teams misfired too often this season during an eight-game losing streak that effectively ended their playoff hopes,womens Ricardo Louis Jersey, but the body of work on defense is worth paying mind to. Broncos fans can thank Brandon Marshall for much of it.,Authentic Jamar Taylor JerseyMarshall and the defense have been as good as ever. The record might not show a winning season this year

Todd Davis following in Brandon Marshall’s footsteps for Denver Broncos

Todd Davis has grown accustomed to following fellow inside linebacker Brandon Marshall’s lead.

Davis has excelled in Denver after getting cut multiple times by another NFL team.,Like Marshall

Like Marshall, Davis is the team’s Ed Block Courage Award recipient,womens Kevin Zeitler Jersey, two years after Marshall.,womens JC Tretter Jersey, winning it this year

Like Marshall,womens Jason McCourty Jersey, too.,womens Seth DeValve Jersey, Davis is positioned to cash in on free agency

” Marshall said. “It just depends on where and how much.”,womens Randall Telfer Jersey,“I’m definitely rooting for him. I know he will

the Broncos’ 2015 Ed Block recipient,Marshall,Authentic Jamie Collins Jersey, signed a four-year, $32,womens Briean Boddy-Calhoun Jersey,000 deal as a restricted free agent before last season.

Davis is heading to unrestricted free agency this offseason.

Marshall is pulling for Davis to stay in Denver.,Although the players are expecting massive roster turnover following their second straight season without a playoff berth

The two have developed a great chemistry together. Marshall leads the team in tackles this year with 101 and Davis is second with 78 despite missing two games with injuries.

but it’s a tough league,“I hope he stays,” Marshall said. “We’ve been losing, so that makes it even tougher. So, we’ll see what happens.”

we’ll see how everything goes.”,Added Davis: “I love Denver

Marshall said it means more to sign a lucrative second contract than a big rookie deal because those are based on potential instead of performance.,While players would rather be high draft picks than afterthoughts

on what we’ve done,“Yeah,Authentic Kevin Zeitler Jersey,” Marshall said. “Absolutely,Authentic JC Tretter Jersey, we’ve proven ourselves and they pay us as such. So,Authentic Jason McCourty Jersey, it’s definitely better to happen in your second contract that your first.”

just like Marshall was cut many times by the Jacksonville Jaguars before making a name for himself with the Broncos.,Authentic Seth DeValve Jersey,Davis was cut several times by the New Orleans Saints before coming to Denver

“I think that’s one of the things that bonds us together so close,Authentic Randall Telfer Jersey, it’s because we really understand each other.”,womens Trevon Coley Jersey, Davis said. “I think that his story is very similar to mine and we definitely both know what it means to be sitting at home or unsure of your football future. I think that’s why we work so hard together and work so well together

saying,Marshall concurs,Authentic Briean Boddy-Calhoun Jersey, “Absolutely, we have things in common and that definitely helps. Todd’s a hard-working guy, he’s tough. He exhibits everything that an Ed Block Courage award winner would exhibit.”

Marshall was drafted in the fifth round out of Nevada in 2012 but still had to make his way up from the practice squads in Jacksonville and Denver.Authentic Trevon Coley Jersey,

the Broncos claimed him off waivers from New Orleans and he played in six games for Denver down the stretch. He played in all 16 games the next two years and led the team in tackles last year.,Davis went undrafted out of Sacramento State and joined the Saints in June of 2014. Five months laterwomens Jamie Collins Jersey,”

“It’s been an amazing journey and I really feel blessed to be here, it was tough times. I’ve just been blessed and now I’m here.”,” Davis said. “I think one of my biggest defining moments was being cut four or five times and then finally making it on a squad. I made a promise to myself that I would never be cut again. I never wanted to go back there

coach Vance Joseph said.,That perseverance and determination shows in his play

” Joseph said. “Todd plays with injuries. Todd never complains. Todd is the same guy every day. Todd is an example of being a great pro.,“Todd is special. Todd is one of our best leaders

“Through the good times and through the bad times, Todd is full speed. Todd is what I want all of our guys to aspire to be.”, Todd has never changed. His work ethic has never changed. If it’s a walkthrough

NFL rushing champ Kareem Hunt ready for playoff test

Kareem Hunt has been running through challenges all season.

First,womens Tre Boston Jersey, who was supposed to form a two-headed monster with him, there was the challenge of taking over the starting job in Kansas City when veteran running back Spencer Ware, went down with a season-ending injury during a preseason game against Seattle.

Then there was the challenge of living up to expectations, which soared after Hunt ran roughshod over New England in the season opener and kept climbing after a string of incredible performances.

There was the inevitable challenge of breaking through the rookie wall, too. Hunt struggled along with the rest of the Chiefs during a midseason swoon that saw them lose six out of seven, putting their once-iron grip on the AFC West in jeopardy with a few games left in the regular season.

The next challenge: The Titans' bruising rush defense, now that Hunt has led the Chiefs to their second straight division title and into a wild-card game on Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium.womens Spencer Pulley Jersey,

"I always believe in myself. I always think I'm going to make something happen, a third-round pick out of Toledo. "When Ware went down," said Hunt, I had an opportunity to step in and fill a role."

He filled that role in record-setting fashion, too.Authentic Jatavis Brown Jersey,"

Hunt successfully persuaded coach Andy Reid to let him play last week against the Broncos, even though the division had been decided and playoff position set, so that he could take aim at the league rushing title.

Hunt only needed one carry to scamper 35 yards for an early touchdown, enough yardage to send him past the Rams' Todd Gurley with 1,327 yards in just over 15 games.

Hunt is the second straight rookie to win the rushing title,Authentic Antonio Gates Jersey, following the Cowboys' Zeke Elliott,Authentic Keenan Allen Jersey, and the sixth to accomplish the feat in the Super Bowl era.

The only other Chiefs to lead the league in rushing are Priest Holmes and Christian Okoye.

All of that seemed possible when Hunt eclipsed 100 yards rushing in four of his first five games,womens Jahleel Addae Jersey, including a 172-yard performance against the Chargers.

And none of it seemed possible six weeks later,womens Russell Okung Jersey, when Hunt was held to 17 yards on 11 carries by Buffalo in another miserable outing.

At that point,womens Jatavis Brown Jersey, the rookie wall seemed very real — even if Reid mostly laughed it off.

dripping with sarcasm.,"We look at it right around Game 12,womens Kenny Wiggins Jersey, you kind of see where they're at and if they have a bad play you say, 'Whoop! There's the rookie wall,'" Reid said

"Sometimes I think that gets a little overrated, but we haven't seen that with him. He's done well and I think we're probably a little hypersensitive to that when you get around the middle of the season, that 12th game."Authentic Spencer Pulley Jersey

If there was any such wall, the modest-to-a-fault Hunt eventually broke it down. He ran for at least 90 yards and a touchdown in three consecutive games to clinch the division title, putting Hunt in a position to nab the NFL rushing crown in the final game of the regular season.,Authentic Tre Boston Jersey,

"Talk about explosive player," said Titans coach Mike Mularkey, marveling at Hunt's ability to "go the distance every time" the young running back touches the ball.Authentic Russell Okung Jersey

Hunt averaged 4.88 yards per carry this season, second only to the Saints' Mark Ingram, and his 35 carries of at least 10 yards trailed only Gurley for most in the league.,Authentic Kenny Wiggins Jersey,

"I just go out there and play football every game," he said, "and really don't look at the big picture. Just go out there and control what I can control and make plays and good things happen.",womens Keenan Allen Jersey,

Hunt faces a big test this weekend in Tennessee,womens Antonio Gates Jersey which rolls into Arrowhead Stadium allowing 88.8 yards rushing per game — the best in the AFC and fourth-best in the league.

They've only allowed one 100-yard rusher all season. That was Gurley in Week 16.

"We have our chance in the playoffs,Authentic Jahleel Addae Jersey, Hunt said, "and we just have to keep it rolling."

Broncos declare Paxton Lynch the starter for finale

The Denver Broncos will start Paxton Lynch in their season finale against the Kansas City Chiefs – providing he can play on his sprained left ankle that’s sidelined him for more than a month.

”He wasn’t quite ready last week. Hopefully, he’s ready to go this week,” coach Vance Joseph said Tuesday. ”That’s the plan to start Paxton this week.”

Joseph insisted the top priority for the Broncos (5-10) is to beat the Chiefs (9-6), who won the AFC West crown for the second straight season and could treat Sunday’s game in Denver like a playoff bye.

”Not saying if he’s playing we can’t win,” Joseph said. ”He’s going to be our quarterback,womens C. J. Fiedorowicz Jersey, so we expect to win.”

Joseph said it doesn’t matter if Lynch is facing backups,womens Kareem Jackson Jersey, he still wants to get another look at the team’s 2016 first-round draft pick who has only started three NFL games.

”We don’t care about the Chiefs as far as who they play,womens Shane Lechler Jersey,” Joseph said.

Lynch sprained his left ankle in his only start this season, on Nov. 26 at Oakland,womens Ryan Griffin Jersey, and spent the fourth quarter that day sobbing on the bench while Trevor Siemian engineered two touchdown drives in the Broncos’ 21-14 loss.

General manager John Elway wanted Lynch to play last week at Washington but he was deemed unready, so Brock Osweiler got the nod in Denver’s 27-11 loss to the Redskins.

The decision to make yet another change at quarterback was met by seeming indifference in the locker room,Authentic Sammy Watkins Jersey, where the Broncos have long been playing out a soured season that began with promise but was ruined by an eight-game losing streak.

”That’s the decision they’re going with,” receiver Jordan Taylor said. ”So,womens Robert Woods Jersey, so we’re going to be behind that decision as a team and as an offense, I’m looking forward to seeing Paxton get out there and work.”

At practice last week, ”he looked good. He might have been kind of favoring the ankle,” Jordan said. ”So, didn’t know how much he wanted to test it out last week, I expect him to be looking a lot crisper this week and a lot more confident in that ankle.”

The yearlong QB juggling has kept the offense from finding any rhythm.

”If we fix a couple of things early in the season, Trev might still be the starter. If we fix some things with Brock,” receiver Bennie Fowler III said. ”So, he still might be the starter, I think it’s on everybody.”

Osweiler was so flustered by the Broncos’ poor play against the Redskins that he ranted along the sideline while his offensive teammates sat in seeming indifference to his pleas, a scene that was captured by television cameras and sparked discussions about how disengaged the Broncos appear.

”I was trying to ignite the offense. I felt like we were leaving too much out there,Authentic C. J. Fiedorowicz Jersey,” Osweiler explained afterward,Authentic Kareem Jackson Jersey, adding the offense’s play was ”embarrassing and unacceptable.”

Joseph said he had heard about Osweiler’s sideline rant but hadn’t watched it on film.Authentic Robert Quinn Jersey,

”He provides a leadership quality that we haven’t had on offense from that position in my opinion,Authentic Shane Lechler Jersey,” Joseph said. ”If Brock’s doing that,Authentic Ryan Griffin Jersey, it’s for the good of our football team.

”I’m not surprised it happened and I’m encouraged by it because we need more of that. We need more players pushing players. We need more players helping our young guys become pros. I’m not opposed to that at all,womens Robert Quinn Jersey,womens Sammy Watkins Jersey, that’s a good thing in my opinion.

”Now, who was listening? I’m not sure. I didn’t see it,Authentic Robert Woods Jersey,Authentic Connor Barwin Jersey, but we need guys pushing other players and that’s the quarterback’s role. I’m not opposed to Brock doing that.”

But is he opposed to Osweiler’s teammates seemingly ignoring their quarterback?

”I didn’t see it,” Joseph stressed. ”I don’t know who was engaged and who wasn’t engaged … but I encourage Brock to lead.”

That’s something he’ll have to do from the sideline Sunday apparently.

Lynch has regressed since his dismal rookie season,womens Connor Barwin Jersey, when he threw for 497 yards with two TDs and one interception in 10 quarters of work behind Siemian, who soundly beat him out for the starting job again this summer.

Lynch hurt his left shoulder in the preseason and missed almost three months. In his only action this season, he completed 9 of 14 passes for 41 yards with no TDs, an interception and four sacks against the Raiders.

Joseph also said he’d like to see C.J. Anderson gain the 54 yards he needs to become the first Broncos running back since Knowshon Moreno in 2013 to top 1,000 yards rushing.

The Broncos chose to activate rookie De’Angelo Henderson (one run for minus-3 yards) last week, which meant Jamaal Charles was a healthy scratch for the first time this season.

Joseph said the Broncos haven’t considered releasing Charles, who has 296 yards and one touchdown on 69 carries and 129 yards on 23 receptions this season.

Charles said he’s certainly thought about the Broncos releasing him.

”I ain’t playing. Might as well,” he told the Denver Post. ”No reason for me to just sit around and look at people play.”

Mahomes leads Chiefs past Broncos in 1st start

Patrick Mahomes II made both his first NFL start and his first NFL relief appearance a success.

After handing off a two-touchdown lead midway through the fourth quarter in his spectacular NFL debut, the rookie first-round QB returned to rescue the Kansas City Chiefs, driving them 67 yards in 11 plays to beat Denver 27-24 on Harrison Butker's 30-yard field goal as time expired.

"You always have to be ready," Mahomes said. "All season long, it's kind of been the same thing — you have to make sure you're ready to go at any moment."

The Chiefs (10-6) will go back to starting Alex Smith for their wild-card game Saturday against Tennessee,womens Andrew Whitworth Jersey, even more secure in the knowledge they have a clutch backup in Mahomes,Authentic Tyrunn Walker Jersey, the former Texas Tech standout they selected with the 10th overall pick in April.

"He played fantastic,Authentic John Sullivan Jersey," said Kareem Hunt,womens John Sullivan Jersey, who secured the league's rushing title by scurrying 35 yards for a touchdown on his only carry.

Smith and several other starters rested because Kansas City was locked into the No. 4 seed in the AFC playoffs, allowing coach Andy Reid to essentially use this regular season finale as a playoff bye.

"It was good to get a couple bumps and bruises healed up,womens Michael Brockers Jersey," Reid said.

Von Miller said he was impressed by Mahomes, whom he expects to see plenty of in the coming years.

"He's great," Miller said. "He's the quarterback of the future for the Chiefs.",Authentic Lamarcus Joyner Jersey,

The Broncos (5-11) head into another offseason still searching for their quarterback of the future — and maybe their fourth coach in five years after Vance Joseph oversaw a team that lost eight times by double digits and oversaw an eight-game skid, their longest in 50 years.

Joseph, who inherited what was seemingly the best situation of the half dozen new head coaches in 2017 only to finish with the worst record of the bunch, met with GM John Elway on Monday to discuss his future.

"I want to be here, but our football team all year has not stopped working. That was fun to see,Authentic Andrew Whitworth Jersey,Authentic Kayvon Webster Jersey," Joseph said. "It's a football team that's close. We have to make some adjustments in some places,womens Kayvon Webster Jersey, even tonight. It's been a hard year but everyone kept fighting. I want to be here to fix it."

Mahomes became the first quarterback drafted by the Chiefs to win a game for them since Todd Blackledge in 1987. He threw for 284 yards on 24-of-35 passing with no touchdowns and an interception.womens Ethan Westbrooks Jersey,

Mahomes thought his day was won at 24-10 and Reid sent in Tyler Bray,Authentic Ethan Westbrooks Jersey,who handed off late to fullback Anthony Sherman,Authentic Michael Brockers Jersey who carried 14 times for 40 yards after coming into the game with six career carries in seven NFL seasons. Linebacker Zaire Anderson scooped up the loose ball and scored from 38 yards out to pull Denver to 24-17.

After the Chiefs punted, Lynch added a 6-yard TD pass to Demaryius Thomas on fourth down with 2:53 left,womens Lamarcus Joyner Jersey, and Brandon McManus' extra point tied it at 24.womens Tyrunn Walker Jersey,

Mahomes took off his jacket,Authentic Mark Barron Jersey, put on his helmet and returned to the game with 2:45 left. He was promptly sacked by DeMarcus Walker but recovered nicely to drive Kansas City to victory.

Mahomes made a good first impression, he handed off to Hunt,womens Mark Barron Jersey, connecting with tight end Demetrius Harris for 51 yards on Kansas City's opening drive. Then, who dashed for a 35-yard touchdown less than a minute into the game.

For the second consecutive season,Authentic Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey, Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian will have surgery on his left shoulder.

Siemian underwent an evaluation Tuesday in Los Angeles and will have surgery Wednesday to repair the damage from a dislocation suffered Dec. 14 against the Indianapolis Colts. Siemian was sacked by linebacker Barkevious Mingo and landed hard on his non-throwing shoulder.

Siemian left that game and did not play again after being placed on injured reserve.

With a recovery period of eight to 12 weeks,womens Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey, Siemian will likely miss the conditioning portion of the Broncos' offseason program. However, he's expected to be ready to participate in OTAs and minicamps.

Siemian also had surgery on his left shoulder following the 2016 season after playing for most of the season with an AC joint sprain.

Siemian said his shoulder was "a little sore" as players went through their exit physicals Monday.

"Sleeping is kind of tough, but it's all right, just like everybody else," he said. "... I have to get this shoulder taken care of. I'll do that and then, come back to work and get better.''

Siemian said this latest surgery is unrelated to his surgery last year.

The seventh-round pick in the 2015 draft has one year remaining on his original rookie contract.

"I haven't thought that far ahead to be honest with you,Authentic Pat O'Donnell Jersey," Siemian said when asked if he expected to be part of the Broncos' plans in 2018. "As far as I know,Authentic Kyle Long Jersey, I'm under contract another year. Excited to be back here. I have a lot of great teammates and coaches here. It's a good group to be a part of."

Siemian has won back-to-back training camp battles for the starting job and started 10 games this season. However,Authentic Willie Young Jersey, the Broncos' offense struggled mightily at times,Authentic Geno Atkins Jersey, as Siemian, especially with turnovers,womens Jeremy Hill Jersey, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch all started games for the team.

Siemian finished with 2,285 yards passing with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He was sacked 33 times and finished with a 73.3 passer rating.

Broncos president of football operations and general manager John Elway has promised an overhaul at the position. So,Authentic Carlos Dunlap Jersey, while Siemian, are all under contract, a rookie who spent this season on injured reserve, Lynch and Chad Kelly, the Broncos are expected to take a long look at quarterbacks in both free agency and the draft.

“Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.” Dolphins fans must hope the team’s trio of decision-makers (Adam Gase,As Irish statesman Edmund Burke once said, Mike Tannenbaum and Chris Grier) learn these eight lessons from this almost-over disappointing season and will adjust accordingly:

? Don’t overestimate what you believe is your greatest strength – in this case, your front seven talent.

The Dolphins thought they were getting the Andre Branch who injected energy during last season’s win streak, the Kiko Alonso who played well during that 2016 stretch and the Lawrence Timmons who was once a very good player for Pittsburgh. They got none of the three. They also curiously counted on Koa Misi being healthy for a change (he wasn’t).

worst in the league by an astounding margin of 179 yards over the second worst, per Pro Football Focus); and Timmons, by late October,Branch reverted to being an ordinary defensive end (21 tackles and four sacks in 13 games); Alonso was victimized all year against tight ends (he has allowed 779 yards in pass coverage, looked like the declining player that the Steelers saw when they parted ways with him.

The Dolphins also had some bad luck,womens Ryan Schraeder Jersey, with middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan missing the season with a knee injury.

Lesson learned here: With Miami producing the third-fewest sacks (26) and tied for last in pressures-per-pass-play, this front seven still clearly needs upgrading.

they can expect the same problems next season – perhaps even more so,womens Ricardo Allen Jersey,If Miami doesn’t add at least one quality starting linebacker and another rotational end, with Cam Wake getting older and eventually probably better suited to a pass-rush specialist role.

you often can expect mediocre results – unless you’re really good at drafting them,Authentic Matt Bryant Jersey,? When you decide to pay a pittance for guards,Authentic Marcell Dareus Jersey, which the past several Dolphins regimes haven’t been.

The Dolphins decided early last season that they were done spending big money at guard.

Anthony Steen, Jermon Bushrod,womens Tyrod Taylor Jersey, Jesse Davis,But by trying to patch together a group of guards being paid less than $6 million combined (Ted Larsen, Isaac Asiata),womens Kyle Williams Jersey, the Dolphins ended up with what they paid for – largely uninspired play.

Pro Football Focus ranks Bushrod 65th, Steen 66th,Among 79 qualifying guards, Davis 68th and Larsen 69th. No other team has all their guards rated so low.

$60 million from Cleveland), T.J. Lang (three years, $28 million from Detroit), $24 million from Saints) and Ronald Leary (four years,I understand why Miami didn’t want to spend big money on Kevin Zeitler (five years, Larry Warford (four years, $36 million from Denver). But some of them would have helped; PFF rates Leary 10th (he’s out now with back injury), Zeitler 11th and Lang 14th.

who hasn’t played a snap. Instead, Asiata was just the latest example of this franchise’s inability to find quality,Perhaps this would have worked out differently if Larsen hadn’t missed the first half of the season with a bicep injury or if the Dolphins had hit on Asiata, NFL-ready guards in the draft over the past decade.

? Don’t use a modest sample size of success to necessarily judge players who have had uneven careers.

even though he had more than four sacks only once in four years in Jacksonville,The Dolphins gave three years and $24 million to Branch based on a strong final two months, where he started just 12 of 51 games.

Miami gave four years and $29 million to Alonso – instead of signing him for one year, using a tender – and then making an evaluation after the 2017 season. Alonso was very good as a rookie for Buffalo in 2013 and productive last year but missed 2014 with an injury and was merely average for Philadelphia in 2015.

? Pro Football Focus isn’t always right. But it isn’t always wrong either.,Authentic Matt Bosher Jersey,

claiming that Bushrod was much better than PFF suggested last year. Though a bunch of other teams pay hundreds of dollars annually for PFF data,Authentic Ryan Schraeder Jersey,The Dolphins have been dismissive of PFF evaluations,Authentic Ricardo Allen Jersey the Dolphins put no weight in low grades last year for free agents Timmons and Nate Allen.

Seems as though PFF was right on all three. Timmons proved to be a declining linebacker, Allen a middling safety and Bushrod (at this point in his career) a subpar guard.

Obviously,womens Matt Bosher Jersey,womens Matt Bryant Jersey, no team should base its evaluation primarily – or anything close to that - off a metric site. But metric site evaluation of players should at least be mentioned as part of a broad evaluation of potential acquisitions.

a history of injuries (Misi/the Dolphins restructured his 2017 contract instead of merely cutting him and moving on), or players coming off a bad year (Jay Cutler,Authentic Tyrod Taylor Jersey, Be careful with signing players with lots of tread on the tires (Timmons), Julius Thomas).

? Don’t gloss over behavioral issues or undisciplined play such as a penchant for penalties (Miami is second in the league) and expect they will get fixed.Authentic Richie Incognito Jersey,

It was stunning when Gase said after the Baltimore game that some of his players don’t study their playbooks enough and it had been a problem for a year and a half. Shouldn’t this have been addressed sooner? And Gase and his staff were unable to fix the penalty problem, which is partly coaching.

it was surprising when the Dolphins insisted they had seen no red flags from offensive line coach Chris Foerster,Authentic Kyle Williams Jersey,womens Richie Incognito Jersey,On a much more serious level, who was snorting a white substance from his desk.

and perhaps Foerster simply did a great job of hiding his problem,The Dolphins cannnot babysit their coaches or players, until a Las Vegas woman leaked his damaging video. So we won’t blame the Dolphins on this.

But in general, shouldn’t the Dolphins have a sharper sense of player/employee shortcomings - issues as simple as lack of studying or more serious problems - and do something about it sooner?womens Marcell Dareus Jersey,?

even cockiness,? This one is specifically for Gase: Your confidence, is admirable. You proved last year you have great potential as an NFL head coach.

But don’t assume you can fix players because you’ve worked with them before. That was the assumption made with Cutler and Thomas, neither of whom produced at the levels the team expected.

if any,Gase can help maximize the production of some players – such as Ryan Tannehill last year and Tim Tebow a few years ago – but he’s not a magician. Few, coaches are.

Here’s Armando Salguero’s interesting piece tonight on something else Gase must learn.

? Don’t let good free agents leave your building without a contract if you can help it.

and both have been clearly better players this year than Branch or Timmons,Miami failed to sign defensive end Jabaal Sheard and linebacker Zach Brown, who were signed before the Sheard/Brown visits.

Here’s my six-pack of Tuesday UM nuggets, including recruiting news and other stuff.

Broncos linebacker Shaquil Barrett was determined to hit ground running after missing preseason

When Shaquil Barrett took the field against the Chargers on Monday night, he was preparing to play his first game in nine months. The fourth-year outside linebacker missed all of training camp as he recovered from a hip injury, and he didn’t play in any preseason games.

No big deal, a teammate assured him.

“One of my real good friends who used to play for the Cowboys, so he’s on track.”,” Broncos outside linebacker Kasim Edebali said of former NFL defensive end Anthony Spencer. “So I told Shaq, you’ll have the best year of your life.’ He’s like,womens A. J. Cann Jersey, ‘Don’t worry about nothing. I’ve heard if you miss training camp,womens Leonard Fournette Jersey, he told me his best season he ever had was when he missed training camp, ‘All right,Authentic Dawuane Smoot Jersey, cool.’ He started off with a sack

Spencer missed the 2012 preseason because of injury. All he did when the regular season began was register a career-high 11 sacks and 95 tackles on the way to a Pro Bowl berth.

Missing the grind of training camp may not be a scientifically proven method of success for an NFL player,womens Dede Westbrook Jersey, but Barrett was sharp Monday night while registering a sack of Philip Rivers — Denver’s lone takedown of the Los Angeles quarterback — and participating in 92 percent of the defensive snaps during the Broncos’ 24-21 victory.

With the Broncos missing Shane Ray — their normal starter at outside linebacker opposite Von Miller — until the end of October, Barrett’s return was a boon to Denver’s defense.

“I thought he played very well,womens Blake Bortles Jersey,” Broncos defensive coordinator Joe Woods said. “When you can have somebody opposite Von that’s a threat,womens Jalen Ramsey Jersey, that helps us just in terms of how they’re going to try to protect against us. It helps us setting up our schemes in terms of our pressure package and our pass stunts. I think he did a nice job.”

Even before Ray went down with a wrist injury at the start of training camp, Barrett was earmarked for a larger role as the team went about replacing retired pass rusher DeMarcus Ware.

So Barrett changed his diet. He followed Miller’s lead and hired a personal chef,Authentic Jalen Ramsey Jersey, who constructed a meal plan heavy on seafood and chicken and light on red meat.

“I had to keep working on my body, week in and week out.”, be in the best shape I’ve ever been in,” Barrett said. “I wanted to put out more consistency in games. I had games when I made good plays, and I had games when I don’t do anything. So that was my next step, just being consistent in every gamewomens Dawuane Smoot Jersey,

putting into motion a recovery that would take three months.,But Barrett’s preparation for his fourth season screeched to a halt in May, when the former Colorado State star suffered the hip injury while working out on his own. The Broncos initially feared Barrett would need surgery that would endanger his season. Instead, he was able to rehab without an operation,Authentic Cam Robinson Jersey, a

nothing was going to keep him from the Monday night opener.,Authentic A. J. Cann Jersey,Barrett refused to be discouraged. He had big plans for the season,Authentic Leonard Fournette Jerseynd though he didn’t make it back for the Broncos’ third preseason game,womens Cam Robinson Jersey,his own initial goal

“Even when he went down with the injury, and the Broncos drove for a field goal on the ensuing drive to take a 24-7 lead.,Authentic Dede Westbrook Jersey, Barrett faked a step inside on first down and then curved around Chargers offensive tackle Russell Okung,Authentic Blake Bortles Jersey,constantly working and rehabbing his injury so he could get back out there, it was even more apparent that we were going to need him. Shaq’s done a great job,womens Allen Robinson Jersey, man. I’m excited to have him back,” Broncos safety Justin Simmons said. “Especially when Shane went down, he was the first one in here and the last one to leave, and he obviously makes our job in the back end that much easier.”Lined up on the right side of the line in the third quarter Monday night, reaching Rivers for a 7-yard loss. The Chargers punted three plays later

Despite the highlight, Barrett took a critical view of his performance.Authentic Allen Robinson Jersey,

“I felt pretty good. I had some mistakes that could have been potentially big and could have hurt us a lot, but I’m happy that didn’t happen,” he said. “I just have to work on focusing out there on keying in on my reads.”

Shelby Harris took a long road to reach Broncos roster.

a proper homage to his alma mater,Shelby Harris sat at his locker Monday wearing a bright red T-shirt with the image of an oversized cardinal on the front,Authentic Raekwon McMillan Jersey, the Illinois State Redbirds.

wore the shirt with pride. After all, a fourth-year defensive end in his first season with the Broncos,Harris, Illinois State had opened its season over the weekend by walloping Butler 45-0.

had to come in order to earn an important role on a reconfigured Broncos defensive line. It’s a unit,But perhaps more than that score, the star of Denver’s preseason, featuring three new faces, the shirt was a reminder of how far Harris, that will play a key role in Denver’s efforts to improve a run defense that ranked 28th in the NFL last season.

000-yard mark in 13 games last season, who finished just 3 yards shy of the 1,womens Dan Marino Jersey,It’s also a group that will be heavily tested Monday night against Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon,Authentic Jay Ajayi Jersey, his second in the league.

” Broncos nose tackle Domata Peko said. “First-round pick; he’s been having a couple good years. He’s a very explosive back. We have to make sure we maintain our gap leverage and keep our gaps and stop the run. We should be fine,womens Ryan Tannehill Jersey,“Melvin is a great running back,womens Kenny Stills Jersey, but it’s a great test for us.”

returning to practice for the first time in more than three weeks Monday, Derek Wolfe and Jared Crick,Authentic Charles Harris Jersey,With defensive end Zach Kerr sidelined with a bruised knee (his status for Monday’s game is uncertain) and the starters at the position, Harris figures to be relied upon to rotate along the defensive line and help slow Gordon as the Broncos open their season on the grand stage of “Monday Night Football.”V,womens Raekwon McMillan Jersey,

but he ran afoul of the program’s rules and was booted for conduct detrimental to the team. His college football career was over. He was at a crossroads. If he wanted to prove he belonged in the NFL, when he was kicked off the team at Illinois State before his senior season. He had been an all-conference performer after recording seven sacks as a junior,It’s a big jump from where Harris was 4? years ago, Harris would have to push himself there.,womens Charles Harris Jersey

the defensive coordinator at Illinois State who has remained close with Harris. “That this a bump. It’s not a mountain. I told him: ‘You’ll get over this,” said Spence Nowinsky,“It was making sure you’re not going to go backward in your life, and you’ll get through this. This is not just this moment. These are the moments for the rest of your life.’ That was the mind-set.”Authentic Julius Thomas Jersey,

Harris spent his year away from football working a part-time job at a restaurant and training during most other hours. He impressed the Raiders enough for Oakland to use its seventh-round pick in 2014 on the defensive lineman who showed impressive natural instincts despite some rust during the predraft process.

bouncing between the active roster and the practice squad,Authentic Dan Marino Jersey,Authentic Jarvis Landry Jersey,Harris played in eight games for the Raiders over two seasons,womens Jarvis Landry Jersey,womens Jay Ajayi Jersey, before he was released by the team in May 2016. That led to another season away from game action. Harris was with the New York Jets in training camp but was waived ahead of last season. He was signed by the Dallas Cowboys to their practice squad in December but never made it to the active roster.

The Broncos offered another chance. Harris signed a futures contract with the team in January and made some noise during organized team activities.Authentic Kenny Stills Jersey,

all Harris did was combine for a deflected pass,Authentic Ryan Tannehill Jersey,Wolfe and Crick went down the following week and Kerr hurt his knee the next week. With extended playing time in Broncos’ second and third preseason games,But it was the injuries of training camp that truly opened the door: Defensive lineman Billy Winn was lost for the season with a torn ACL in the preseason opener,womens Julius Thomas Jerseytwo fumble recoveries and three sacks.

Anderson closing in on 1,000 yards for first time

The Denver Broncos have nothing to play for Sunday against Kansas City except pride and personal milestones such as C.J. Anderson adding ''1,000-yard rusher '' to his resume.

The fifth-year running back is 54 yards shy of becoming the franchise's first 1,000-yard rusher since Knowshon Moreno in 2013.

'' said Anderson,''It's huge, who is also 60 minutes away from reaching another one of his goals: playing a full season healthy.

coming away with 1,'' Anderson said. ''We have one game to do it,000 for this season coming off of knee surgery I think is an accomplished and successful season,''Some people forget I had knee surgery last year. So, staying healthy, I know the big boys want me to get it and we want to get it.''

That would give the Broncos (5-10) something to celebrate in a soured season that in many ways was their worst since their awful AFL days in the 1960s.Authentic Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey,

too.'','' Anderson said. ''At the same time - we know the Chiefs, they're going to play man to man - so hopefully we can find a way to get D.T. his sixth straight (1,''I think that's a positive in our season,000-yard receiving season)

but he'll likely be catching passes from Paxton Lynch and not Brock Osweiler on Sunday,Demaryius Thomas is 108 yards shy of that milestone,Authentic Hunter Henry Jersey, so odds are better Anderson will reach his milestone.

last month against Oakland, when he sprained his left ankle,Authentic Max Tuerk Jersey,Lynch threw for 41 yards in his one start this season, an injury that has sidelined him ever since. Coach Vance Joseph said Lynch will start Sunday if his ankle allows.

and the Broncos want to get another look at their disappointing 2016 first-round draft choice before heading into an offseason,womensv Denzel Perryman Jersey,The Chiefs (9-6) will start first-round pick QB Patrick Mahomes ,Authentic Mike Williams Jersey, when upgrading the quarterback position is job No. 1 for general manager John Elway.

The impending roster shakeup might sweep Anderson out of Denver.,Authentic Dan Feeney Jersey,

$18 million deal,Anderson is completing the second season of his four-year,womens Craig Mager Jersey, and his salary jumps from $2.9 million to $4.5 million in each of the next two seasons. There's no dead cap money involved if the Broncos decide to move on from Anderson to Devontae Booker or rookie De'Angelo Henderson.

Anderson has maintained his strength thanks to boxing and biking he did in the offseason as he recovered from knee surgery.

''I think I'm peaking at the right time,womens Dan Feeney Jersey,'' Anderson said. ''I'll be 27 in February. I think that helps. I'm in my prime years and it sucks to waste one.''

000 yards because he wants to catch up to - or at least keep up with - Pittsburgh Steelers star running back Le'Veon Bell,Anderson said he wants to reach 1, the only fifth-year running back who has better career numbers than he does.

That's a point of pride for Anderson, who wasn't one of the 23 running backs drafted in 2013.

000 yards this season and stack them up every season I play from here on out,''I want to get 1,'' Anderson said.

000-yard rushing season but lacks a Super Bowl ring - Anderson has one. Anderson might not have been sweating it out this week had the Broncos stuck to the run earlier in the season. The Broncos are 5-0 when they run more than they pass,Bell is in the midst of his third 1, 0-10 when they don't.,womens Forrest Lamp Jersey,

Reaching 1,000 yards is in some ways a bigger deal than ever in an era when teams split the snaps with bigger backfields and rely more on their air attacks than ground games.Authentic Craig Mager Jersey

so even today to put together that amount of yardage I think is still a pretty big thing,'' Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. ''That position,''That's a tough stinking position to play, it's rough. You're taking some pretty good hits. And so to get that mileage and stay healthy to get the mileage I still think is quite an accomplishment.''womens Mike Williams Jersey,

Todd Gurley,Of the seven 1, Kareem Hunt, LeSean McCoy,000-yard rushers so far - Bell,womens Hunter Henry Jersey,womens Max Tuerk Jersey, Jordan Howard, Mark Ingram and Melvin Gordon - only Howard's Bears aren't in the playoff mix.

000,Authentic Denzel Perryman Jersey,Jacksonville's Leonard Fournette (971) and Baltimore's Alex Collins (895) are closing in on 1, and their teams have either clinched a playoff berth or can do so this weekend.

'' Anderson said of his healthiest,Authentic Forrest Lamp Jerseymost productive season yet,''That's the shame of it,womens Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey, ''is that won't matter come January.''
