Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers

Be careful what you wish for.

General manager Ted Thompson’s last offseason as general manager of the Green Bay Packers included a disastrous foray into free agency.

He was more aggressive than usual, likely as a result of losing several of his own free agents to other teams and possibly due to some prodding from others inside the organization. The result after one year was several underwhelming additions and several productive departures.

Let’s run through the players the Packers added:

TE Martellus Bennett: The jewel of Green Bay’s free agency class quickly turned into fool’s gold. Caught 24 passes, dropped a half dozen others, failed to score a touchdown and was released after a messy and bitter final two weeks. One of the worst signings of the entire free agency period in the NFL.

TE Lance Kendricks: Played in all six games but caught a career-low 18 passes and provided next to nothing as a blocker.

CB Davon House: Handled his business more often than not, but battled injury and managed only one interception and six passes defended over 12 games. A starter for one of the league’s worst passing defenses.

DL Ricky Jean-Francois: Played in six games for the Packers but tallied only two tackles. Was cut twice and eventually ended up in New England.

G Justin McCray: A surprising bright spot. Made the 53-man roster coming out of camp and played all over the offensive line as a supersub.

G Jahri Evans: Solidified right guard for 14 games. Cheap, effective solution after losing T.J. Lang.

OLB Ahmad Brooks: Signed to be the top backup at outside linebacker but managed only 1.5 sacks. Dealt with a back injury for most of the season.

DL Quinton Dial: Played 13 games but provided very little impact.

The Packers signed three of their own unrestricted free agents: Nick Perry, Don Barclay and Christine Michael. Perry fought through four different injuries and finished with 7.0 sacks, Barclay was released after suffering an ankle injury during the preseason and Michael was cut after the Packers took three running backs in the draft.

Two unrestricted free agents were re-signed: Jayrone Elliott and Jordan Tripp. Elliott was traded to Dallas, while Tripp was released during final cuts.

The Packers let seven unrestricted free agents sign elsewhere.

Let’s run through those players:

S Micah Hyde: Intercepted five passes as a safety in Buffalo and earned Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors.

DE Julius Peppers: Went back to Carolina on a cheap deal and produced 11 sacks for the Panthers.

OL J.C. Tretter: Started all 16 games at center for the Browns.

G T.J. Lang: Played in 13 games despite several injuries and was once again one of the NFL’s better guards.

RB Eddie Lacy: The Packers tried to get him back but he left for Seattle, where he delivered only 176 rushing yards and 2.6 yards per carry for the Seahawks.

OLB Datone Jones: Quickly flamed out of Minnesota before the start of the regular season and then bounced around with several different teams. Landed in Dallas and played four games and made two starts for the Cowboys.

TE Jared Cook: Passed over in Green Bay and eventually signed with the Raiders, catching 54 passes for 688 yards and two touchdowns – more than Bennett and Kendricks combined.

Any way you slice it, decisions made during free agency hurt the quality of the Packers’ 53-man roster in 2017. New general manager Brian Gutekunst is expected to be more aggressive in free agency and other player acquisition avenues, but there are no guarantees. Hopefully, Gutekunst and the Packers learned from Thompson’s failures during his final offseason.

Cheap Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

Blake Bortles

Blake Bortles

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Blake Bortles wasn’t having a whole lot of success with his arm, so the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback decided to try to make a few plays with his legs.

That’s not exactly the formula the Jaguars want to use, but it worked Sunday in their 10-3 AFC wild-card victory over the Buffalo Bills at EverBank Field. Bortles rushed for more yards (88) than he had passing (87) to become the first quarterback to win a playoff game with fewer than 100 passing yards on 20-plus attempts since Steve McNair in the 1999 AFC wild-card game against the Bills.

All that matters for the Jaguars, though, is Bortles found a way to win a playoff game, which hasn’t been done around here in a long time. The last time that happened was in the 2007 season. The last time it happened at home was after the 1999 season. Whether Bortles is still the franchise’s long-term answer at quarterback is a debate that can be put off for another week because the Jaguars still have at least one more game to play.

“Going into a game, there’s no secret recipe on how to win,” said Bortles, who completed 12 of 23 passes. “There’s no number that says you’ve got to score this many points to beat them. You’ve got to score one more than they score, regardless of it’s 50 or if it’s three, you’ve got to find a way to outscore them.”

That seemed unreachable with the way Bortles played in the first half. It appeared that the significant strides he made in 2017 were going to be wasted and the offseason was going to again be filled with questions such as, “What do the Jaguars do at quarterback?” Yet Bortles was able to rebound and proved to his teammates and coaches that he can be relied upon to win games.

It doesn’t matter that Bortles did a large part of it with his feet.

“He found a way,” cornerback Aaron Colvin said. “That’s what we talk about. It’s the main reason I played today [despite being ill]. You’ve got to find a way. Whatever it takes. We’ve got to get to these goals that we’ve talked about.

“All this work we’ve put in the offseason is for moments like these, and for him to find a way and do it with his legs, man, I have the utmost respect for him.”

Bortles was having by far his worst game of the season until he started scrambling and getting free. Per ESPN Stats & Information, Bortles gained 71 of his 88 rushing yards via scrambles. In the past 10 postseasons, only Colin Kaepernick has scrambled for more yards in a game (85 in the 2013 wild-card round).

“I kind of reference it to a pitcher,” Bortles said. “You go out and something’s not on. You don’t have a fastball or you don’t have a curveball, and you’ve got to find another pitch to be able to win and be successful and get guys out. That’s kind of the same thing playing quarterback.

“I’m kind of fortunate to be able to run around and be able to do that stuff and have kind of an Option B to kind of help this offense move the ball and put up points. Trying to do really whatever I can to help this team win [and] help this team score points.”

Bortles’ rushing performance doesn’t overshadow that the Jaguars won’t be around in the playoffs much longer if the offense doesn’t start producing. Outside of Bortles, the run game was terrible: Leonard Fournette managed 57 yards on 21 carries. Dede Westbrook was the only receiver to catch a pass against the Bills.

That certainly won’t be good enough when the Jaguars play at Pittsburgh next Sunday with a berth in the AFC Championship Game on the line.

“We never really got into a rhythm and weren’t able to get anything on third down,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said. “I’d be a fool to sit here and say I’m not concerned, but I’m going to take a step back and go ahead and look at it again. Obviously, if you want to continue to keep playing, you’re going to have to do a better job.”

That includes Bortles’ arm and legs.

Cheap New Orleans Saints Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

Marshon Lattimore

Marshon Lattimore

NEW ORLEANS — Add another unforgettable moment to the New Orleans Saints-Atlanta Falcons rivalry: the “butt pick.”

Saints rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore intercepted a pass late in the second quarter that actually came to rest on his butt as he lay face down — before he secured it against his backside with help from teammates Marcus Williams and Craig Robertson.

“Everybody else was trying to grab it. So I just had to keep it in my possession,” said Lattimore, who said he has made some athletic plays before, “but nothing like that.”

Social media immediately erupted with references to the #buttpick and #buttinterception, as well as comparisons to the New York Jets’ infamous “butt fumble” from five years ago.

“I must be living right, I don’t know,” said Lattimore. “Who doesn’t love the term ‘butt pick’ but saw that social media was already rolling with it.”

“I don’t know. They’re gonna have to call it what they want. Hopefully it’s No. 1 on the top-10 SportsCenter,” Lattimore said. “But it was a great play and we won, so that’s all I can think about.”

Saints RB Mark Ingram said it’s “gotta be an ESPY” and suggested hamstring curl.

Meanwhile, the Saints made it count by turning the momentum into a quick 54-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees to Ted Ginn Jr. three plays later for a 13-0 halftime lead en route to a 23-13 win.

This one might not wind up being immortalized with a statue outside the Superdome like Steve Gleason’s blocked punt against the Falcons when the Saints reopened the building after Hurricane Katrina in 2006, but it did have big playoff implications. The Saints (11-4) clinched a playoff spot with the win and would claim the NFC South with a victory next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The interception was Lattimore’s fifth of the season and second in three weeks against Atlanta as he looks to cement his place as the front-runner for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

“I haven’t seen anything like that before,” Lattimore said. “But it helped us win, so that’s the biggest thing.”

The 11th overall draft pick from Ohio State made the Pro Bowl earlier in the week at the age of 21. He tied Sammy Knight’s franchise record from 1997 with five interceptions as a rookie.

METAIRIE, La. — The New Orleans Saints’ resurgent defense will be put to the test Sunday in Los Angeles without both of their starting cornerbacks against the Los Angeles Rams’ resurgent offense.

Breakout rookie Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and second-year pro Ken Crawley (abdomen) have both been ruled out after not practicing all week. The Saints (8-2) also must make do without starting defensive end Alex Okafor, who was placed on injured reserve this week with a torn Achilles.

The good news is that New Orleans will get two starters back from injuries: safety Kenny Vaccaro and linebacker A.J. Klein, both of whom practiced on a limited basis all week.

“We’ll have contingency plans for whoever we have available to us. And we’ll have a good plan to go out and execute against the Rams,” Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen said. “I think one of the good things is we’ve developed some depth here, hopefully so that we can withstand some of the injury concerns.

“You never know when you’re gonna be called on. That’s part of that, as everybody says, that ‘next man up’ philosophy. And that’s really the way that this league is.”

The Saints have survived injuries the past two months. The cornerback position is thinner than most after they also lost former starter Delvin Breaux to injured reserve with a broken fibula during the preseason.

Young backups P.J. Williams and De’Vante Harris will likely start on Sunday, with veteran Sterling Moore also in the mix after re-signing with New Orleans on Monday. Vaccaro will likely serve as the nickel cornerback, as he has done for most of the year when healthy.

Last week, after Lattimore was injured in the first quarter (while breaking up a pass in the end zone, no less) the Saints went on to give up more than 300 yards and three touchdown passes to the Washington Redskins’ Kirk Cousins in a dramatic 34-31 overtime victory.

Lattimore, just 21 years old, has been one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL this season — and one of the main reasons why New Orleans has the second-best pass defense in the league since Week 3 (167 passing yards allowed per game in that span).

Lattimore, who was drafted with the 11th overall pick, is a front-runner for the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year award, with two interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), nine pass defenses and a forced fumble.

The Rams offense, meanwhile, has been just as surprising as the New Orleans defense, ranking fifth in the NFL this season with 375.4 yards per game and second in the league with 30.3 points per game.

Los Angles, however, will also be missing top receiver Robert Woods this week after he was ruled out with a shoulder injury.

Cheap San Francisco 49ers Jersey Wholesale From China

The Silicon Valley is known as the world epicenter of the tech industry. Yet, when the San Francisco 49ers relocated to Santa Clara to begin playing at Levi’s Stadium, the team was surprised to learn that a mere three-percent of high school students in the Santa Clara school system passed the AP Calculus examination.

Since its founding in 1991, the 49ers Foundation has been committed to providing opportunities to children in underserved communities to help keep them, “safe, on track and in school.” Recognizing the likely cause of low AP Calculus test score results as a gap in STEM education opportunities, the 49ers shifted their educational strategy to address this issue upon moving to Santa Clara.

To do this, the 49ers launched two science and math-based educational initiatives targeted toward Santa Clara area children: The 49ers STEAM Education Program and the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute. Through these endeavors, the team reaches over 60,000 children per year with both high-level and intensive STEM and STEAM education opportunities.

Building Levi’s Stadium provided the 49ers with a unique opportunity to reimagine what STEAM education could look like. Constructing a 20,000 square foot museum space within the stadium, the 49ers carved out specialized classroom and teaching areas to provide opportunities for children in Kindergarten through 8th grade to learn about the science and math behind football.

“In building Levi’s Stadium, the York family wanted to create impactful community programming centered around education. The museum began as a conduit for an education program. What we envisioned at that point was a program that would bring children to the stadium and use football and the stadium as platforms to get kids to engage with and be more interested in STEAM subjects,” said Jesse Lovejoy, the 49ers’ director of STEAM education and director of the 49ers Museum.

Through the 49ers STEAM Education Program, students from Kindergarten through 8th grade travel to the 49ers Museum at Levi’s Stadium to engage in project-based STEAM learning. Students not only travel through the museum, but enter into specially designed, highly technological classrooms where they engage with 49ers instructors on STEAM topics related to football. The curriculum provided by the 49ers educational staff is customized to the students’ grade and their teachers’ overarching in-class coursework. Students attend the field trip completely free of charge, with the 49ers not charging an admission fee and even paying for transportation to Levi’s Stadium.

“When you see how kids engage with the content, you can see why the 49ers’ investment matters. In order to have students entering college, post-high school vocational training and the workforce prepared and hungry to pursue STEAM careers, you have to light a fire inside of them. You must show them these things are relevant. Sometimes you have to do that using a vehicle that they understand, but don’t necessarily appreciate, as being a conduit for those things. Football is exactly that,” Lovejoy explained.

What began as a plan to serve 20,000 children annually with high-level STEAM education lessons quickly became much bigger and more impactful than expected.

“We launched the program in 2014 and the original plan was to serve 20,000 kids in the first year. We were able to host over 30,000 kids in the first year, after turning 15,000 away because of logistics, and saw we had an incredible way to engage kids around STEAM,” Lovejoy noted.

Seeing the breadth by which the team could impact Santa Clara area children through STEAM education, Lovejoy Jed York, owner of the 49ers, to do something unprecedented: Re-open construction on a stadium that was opened just a year before.

“I went to ownership and told them I thought we had something we needed to grow. I told them I wanted to build another classroom. The conversation lasted five-minutes and the York family said that they’re committed to growing this and if building was needed to grow it, they would do it. Not only that, but they told me to make sure what we built was the best and most engaging thing out there in STEAM education,” Lovejoy recalled.

For the 49ers’ ownership group, the bold investment in education has paid dividends.

“Both my parents and [co-chairman] Denise’s parents felt that education was the way to lift yourself up. In being able to do that and learning how to learn, you could teach yourself anything. If you give students the confidence that they can learn anything, they become confident individuals who accomplish more,” 49ers co-chairman, Dr. John York, said.

Holding this commitment to education, the York family also launched the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute in partnership with the Silicon Valley Education Foundation, Santa Clara Unified School District and Chevron. The six-year program provides selected students at Santa Clara’s Cabrillo Middle School and Santa Clara High School access to an additional 320 hours of education per year on STEM topics. Students receive this education in a uniquely designed STEM Fabrication lab, featuring a full suite of digital fabrication tools and prototyping machines. Students not only learn the math and science behind using 3D printers, vinyl cutters and milling machines, but develop the leadership skills necessary to successfully navigate the tech industry.

Students in the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute are taught nine core values: Communication, creativity, collaborative spirit, curiosity, risk taking, leadership, determination, passion and initiative.

“In selecting the core values, we were trying to pick out the things that make a leader. It isn’t intelligence or passing the AP Calculus test that makes one a leader. There are a great deal of things which make one a leader, one of which is learning to take risks. If you have no opportunity to learn how to take risks, possibly fail and then pick yourself up and work, you won’t learn that,” Dr. York remarked.

Presenting risk taking opportunities in a safe, controlled environment is just one way the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute is closing the tech learning opportunity disparity between students in the Silicon Valley. Many associated with the program laud the networking opportunities it presents as the institute’s main benefit.

Medha Kini, a 10th grade participant in the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute, found a new career path through an institute networking opportunity.

“For me, this program really benefits my future, because of the opportunities we get. A few years ago, we had a speaker from Pixar come and talk about her job. That was really interesting to me, because I like to draw and use math in my drawings. She talked about how part of her job as a technical artist is to program her animations to move. This is now something I want to pursue,” Kini said.

Stories like Kini’s make the 49ers believe their heavy investment in STEAM education is paying off.

“Networking is very important. Being able to meet people in the industry doesn’t happen for all students. These students just think these meetings are ordinary life now, though. 10th grade students can now imagine jobs they can hold other than becoming a doctor, lawyer, fireman or policeman. This is a real bonus, not only to them, but the world,” Dr. York remarked.

Leaders in tech education echo Dr. York’s sentiments on networking.

Earlier this year, the 49ers hosted 100 female student participants of Techbridge Girls—a San Francisco area nonprofit aimed at increasing academic and job opportunities for girls and women in STEM—at the STEAM Education Program at Levi’s Stadium. These students not only learned about the science behind the design of a football face mask, but heard firsthand how STEM plays into a variety of career fields within an NFL organization.

“Our girls came out of this experience with higher understanding of a new pathway to STEAM careers they may never have thought or dreamed of. For us, the impact is about exposing girls to new opportunities that may have never been considered in their wildest thinking, but now become part of their arsenal of opportunities as they enter the industry. We serve girls from low income communities and one of the biggest barriers often is the ability to have social capital, which means having a network allowing them to navigate and open doors in this field,” Techbridge Girls’ CEO, Nikole Collins-Puri, said.

In two-years, the first cohort of 49ers STEM Leadership Institute students will sit for the AP Calculus examination and begin receiving college acceptance letters. Dr. York notes results on the examination and university placement will serve as measures of the program’s success. Yet, he notes that even he has learned from the program.

“This is part of my own process of learning to learn. When you can teach others to learn, it’s something that has a positive influence on a greater number of people who will grow to be leaders as adults. We had no vision that what we’re seeing in these programs would be this exciting,” Dr. York said.

Cheap Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey Wholesale From China

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jameis Winston is coming off a pretty bad game against the Carolina Panthers, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback is still by far the most valuable player on the team—and arguably the best player, too.

We documented Winston’s breakout season last week, and nothing’s really changed after one bad game—especially given the fact that that poor performance seemed at least partially injury-induced. Winston’s turning into a top ten quarterback, and top ten quarterbacks win team MVP awards because top ten quarterbacks are simply that important to a team’s success.

No other player is really worth this award, either. The defense has been terrible and that alone would make naming a defender the MVP obscene. The defense has been pretty good, but with few real standouts. Cameron Brate might be a candidate, while Mike Evans has been his usual productive self too, but neither player’s performance has been truly overwhelming.

The Bucs have won just two games this season, though, so being MVP isn’t as significant as it may otherwise be. Hopefully Winston’s improvement will lead to actual wins sooner rather than later.
