Mike Rizzo sees manager Davey Martinez as part of the team in 2019 despite what has been a massively disappointing 2018 campaign."I haven't considered any other scenario Jason Castro Jersey ," Rizzo said Wednesday when asked whether Martinez would return for next season, per MASN's Mark Zuckerman.Rizzo added he doesn't plan on executing a full-scale rebuild in the offseason."The core is in place to have a championship club," he said, perZuckerman.Granted, some of Rizzo's belief may hinge on whether the Nationals re-sign Bryce Harper, who's a free agent in the winter. Although he's Washington's only big star headed for free agency, he'd leave a big hole in the lineup if he were to sign elsewhere.Regarding Martinez, there's only so much blame to place on a manager for a team that has encountered as much bad luck as the Nationals have.According toBaseball Prospectus, Washington has a .549 third-order winning percentage, which would put the team at 76 wins and right in the National League playoff hunt. Nationals relievers are also 26th in FIP (4.48), perFanGraphs. Yadier Molina's two-out, two-strike grand slam in the top of the ninth in Tuesday night's 11-8 Washington loss to the St. Louis Cardinals sums up the bullpen's fortunes this year.Joe Sheehan joe_sheehanAt the end of the day, I believed in the #Nationals鈥?chances more than anyone employed by the team did. An 0-2, two-out grand slam. Uncle.Martinez may have a hand in the team's failure to close out games Phil Hughes Jersey , though."Martinez's ability to handle a pitching staff emerged as the primary concern in the Nationals clubhouse in the first part of this season, according to on- and off-the-record conversations with players and those familiar with this team鈥檚 inner workings," theWashington Post'sChelsea Janesreported in July.Specifically, Nationals players were worried Martinez was pushing the relievers too hard.TheWashington Post'sBarrySvrlugaalso questioned whether Martinez was capably handling the team in the clubhouse, highlighting the trade ofBrandon Kintzler as an example of the team going out of its way to show support for the manager and send a message. According toSvrluga, the team dealt Kintzler because "he had been too critical of the club鈥檚 inner workings and clubhouse culture."With the season still going on, Rizzo has little reason to undermine Martinez's position by allowing for the possibility he could be out of a job in the offseason.Firing Martinez after just one year would be a surprising move, but it wouldn't be too hard in seeing the Nationals' justification for doing so with how much things have unraveled so quickly. Triple Crown contender Christian Yelich and the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field. Nolan Arenado and the big-hitting Colorado Rockies at Dodger Stadium.October baseball is about to begin with Game No. 163 on Monday.Two tiebreakers on the same day for the first time in major league history. Both to divvy up divisions, too.“It’s interesting that baseball is such a perfect game in some ways that it takes 162 to not decide anything,” Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and the Cubs begin the doubleheader drama when they host Milwaukee for the NL Central crown. Later in the afternoon, Dodgers rookie Walker Buehler is set to start when Los Angeles faces Colorado for the NL West title.There’s a catch, though.All four teams are already assured playoff spots, either as a division champ or wild card. The Dodgers http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-max-kepler-jersey , Rockies, Brewers and Cubs knew that going into Sunday, the final scheduled day of the regular season, and then romped by a combined score of 48-5.So, it means this: These matchups are not one-and-done.Never before has a team that lost a tiebreaker got to keep playing. Bucky Dent’s pop-fly homer finished off the Red Sox in 1978. Matt Holliday slid home — and maybe touched the plate — to eliminate San Diego in 2007. David Price pitched Tampa Bay past Texas in 2013 to win the most recent matchup.This time, they’re all in. But, there’s still a big difference between winning the division or going into the postseason as a wild card.The Brewers-Cubs winner gets to start the best-of-five Division Series at home on Thursday against the wild card winner. The Colorado-Los Angeles winner also begins the NLDS at home versus Atlanta.“It’s a game where obviously it’s not do-or-die, but I think that it’s a must-win game,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after a 15-0 rout in San Francisco.“To win the game and get a couple days off, to host the Division Series is very important,” he said.The tiebreaker losers play Tuesday at the NL Central’s site to determine who advances.The AL playoff scenario is set.Oakland and the Yankees hold the wild-card game Wednesday night in New York and the winner goes to Boston on Friday. Defending World Series champion Houston opens the ALDS against Cleveland.Arenado homered twice and Charlie Blackmon hit for the cycle as the Rockies roughed up Washington 12-0. The Nationals decided to skip ace Max Scherzer and instead start Erick Fedde.Colorado, which has never won a division title since beginning play in 1993, will try to deny the defending NL champion Dodgers their sixth straight West title. German Marquez, who struck out eight straight batters to begin his last start http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-max-kepler-jersey , takes on Manny Machado, Justin Turner and their Los Angeles teammates.“It’s two of the best young starting pitchers in the big leagues pitching in this type of game,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. “It’s great.”The Dodgers topped Colorado 12-7 in the season series. The Cubs are 11-8 against Milwaukee.At Wrigley, lefty Jose Quintana is set to start for the Cubs. He’s 6-2 with a 1.60 ERA in 10 starts against Milwaukee. The Brewers haven’t announced their starter.The Cubs put themselves in this position with a 10-5 win at home over St. Louis. Milwaukee won its seventh in a row, trouncing Detroit 11-0.“Expecting it to be fairly hostile tomorrow,” Yelich said. “Any time we play the Cubs, it’s a hostile environment, especially in Wrigley Field. It’s going to be a lot of fun. We’re looking forward to it.”Yelich is hitting .323 in his first season with Milwaukee, sealing the first batting title in Brewers’ history. He has 109 RBIs, tied with Arenado and two behind Javier Baez of the Cubs. Yelich’s 36 home runs are even with Colorado’s Trevor Story and St. Louis’ Matt Carpenter, one behind Arenado.Since the tiebreakers are considered game No. 163 of the regular season, all stats Monday will count, giving Yelich a chance to win the first NL Triple Crown since Joe Medwick in 1937.

Run Derby into the stands Brian Flynn Jersey , the countdown was officially on for the 89th All-Star Game Tuesday night at Nationals Park in Washington D.C.Chris Sale of the Boston Red Sox will take the mound for the American League and Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals will get the ball in his home ball park for the National League. Both pitchers will have formidable assignments against strong lineups, but Scherzer may have the more difficult task.The National League roster is strong, featuring the likes of Javier Baez, Freddie Freeman and Paul Goldsmith, but the American League roster has a formidable look to it, with Mookie Betts, Mike Trout, J.D. Marinez and Manny Machado supplying much of the junior circuit's thump.Managers Dave Roberts of the National League and A.J.

He is having a sensational year with the first-place Indians, and he has a .291/.367/.562 slash line with 25 home runs and 62 runs batted in.The same holds at third base when Bregman can come into the game to replace Ramirez. Bregman, the only AL participant in Monday night's Home Run Derby, has a .539 slugging percentage with 20 home runs and 64 RBI. Bregman already has more home runs than he did last year (19) in Houston's World Series championship season.The Reds' Votto is probably in the same category as Lindor and Bregman, but there are not many other NL reserves that are in that category.Additionally, once the National League gets past Scherzer and deGrom, its pitching may be vulnerable to the relentless American League attack.Sale and Severino headline the AL pitching, but manager A.J. Hinch can follow with Cole, Snell, Bauer and a series of relievers that includes Diaz, Treinen and Kimbrel.Partially because of these perceived edges, the American League is a minus-130 favorite in the All-Star Game over the National League, according to OddsShark. The Senior Circuit is a plus-110 underdog. A bettor who is backing the American League has to risk $130 to gain a profit of $100. Jason O. Watson/Getty ImagesThe Oakland Athletics placed starting pitcher Sean Manaea on the 10-day disabled list with a left shoulder impingement, the team announced Sunday.The San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reported Manaea is set to undergo an MRI in the Bay Area to determine the severity of the injury.Manaea is 12-9 with a 3.59 ERA in 27 starts this season.Slusser had previously noted his velocity was trending downward for some time, which can be an indication of shoulder issues.According to Brooks Baseball, he's averaging 90.6 mph on his fastball in August, which is a career low for a single month. During the 2016 season, Manaea was regularly hitting 93 and 94 mph with his fastball.His injury couldn't come at a worse time as the A's try to catch the Houston Astros in the American League Wes e very least secure a wild-card berth. Oakland is 1.5 games back of the Astros and five games up on the Seattle Mariners for the final wild-card spot.Before losing Manaea for at least the next week and change, pitching was the Athletics' biggest question mark. According to FanGraphs, Oakland starters are 17th in FIP (4.27). That number isn't terrible but less than ideal for a team with postseason ambitions.So far, the patchwork Athletics rotation has defied expectations.Andrew Simon AndrewSimonMLBSince July 30, the fearsome foursome of Edwin Jackson, Trevor Cahill, Mike Fiers and Brett Anderson has made 15 starts for the As.The result? 93 IP, 1.26 ERA.I mean, what?Maintaining that over the stretch run won't be easy, especially if Manaea's shoulder injury keeps him out for an extended period of time.

Monday for the first time since breaking his right wrist July 26.The five-round session included home runs to all fields by the 2017 AL Rookie of the Year.“It went really well. Another big step for him to get out on the field Bryan Holaday Jersey ,” said manager Aaron Boone, who called the performance “putting on a show.”Judge is second on the team with 26 home runs and has 61 RBIs while hitting .285 in 99 games. He’s also struck out 137 times in 372 at-bats.Judge took indoor batting practice the last two days in Seattle and said Sunday the wrist still hurts. He did not speak to media before Monday’s game in Minnesota.Assuming Judge feels good Tuesday, Boone said he anticipates Judge taking more swings, potentially during group batting practice.Boone cannot put a timetable on when Judge could be back in the lineup.“We’re not at that point to where we’re going to throw him in the games yet or something http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-starlin-castro-jersey ,” he said. “We just want to get through these next couple days where he starts ramping up the amount of swings out on the field and continues to build that momentum.” LOS ANGELES (AP) — Manny Machado’s lack of hustle is starting to stand out more than his offense this postseason.The star shortstop had a little too much self-confidence in the sixth inning Friday night when he thought he homered for the Los Angeles Dodgers during Game 3 of the World Series against the Boston Red Sox. Instead, Machado ended up admiring what turned out to be a 368-foot single as it bounced off the wall in left field.Had Machado run it out, it might have been a double. It also turned out to be his only hit as he went 1 for 7 in the Dodgers’ 3-2 win in 18 innings early Saturday that trimmed their Series deficit to 2-1.“I looked up at first and thought it wasn’t going and then I saw it take up and thought it was going to go out,” Machado said. “That was very Justin Bour Jersey , very, very, very, very poor baserunning by me.”It is not the first time this postseason that Machado’s effort level has become an issue. He was criticized for not hustling during a groundout in Game 2 of the NL Championship Series against Milwaukee.Machado said in an interview on FS1 during the NLCS that he’s well aware he’s not going to be known as a hustling type of player http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-starlin-castro-jersey , but that is how he has played throughout his career.He was much more critical of himself after Friday night’s game.“I probably wasn’t going to be on second base but that was very embarrassing,” he said.Things didn’t get much better for Machado in the eighth when he struck out on Matt Barnes’ high fastball on a full count with a runner on first. Two innings later he popped out to shortstop Xander Bogaerts after Max Muncy doubled with two outs. That dropped Machado to 0 for 9 in his career against Boston closer Craig Kimbrel.Machado also flied out in the 13th after Muncy walked leading off the inning.The 26-year-old Machado can become a free agent this offseason and is expected to command a large contract. He drew the ire of Milwaukee players and fans — not to mention a fine — for kicking Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar near the ankle as he jogged out a groundout during the NLCS.There was also a pair of hard slides into Orlando Arcia in Game 3 while the Milwaukee shortstop was attempting to turn double plays. The antics led Brewers star Christian Yelich to call Machado “a dirty player,” but the Dodgers slugger has seemed to embrace the role of villain this October.The baserunning gaffes are overshadowing what has been a productive month for Machado, acquired from Baltimore on July 19. He is batting .255 in the postseason but leads the Dodgers in home runs (three) and RBIs (11).Machado is 3 for 14 in the World Series but thinks the Dodgers have momentum after their dramatic win.“This is huge. We were grinding until the last run came across the board. We’re 2-1 in the Series Nick Wittgren Jersey , which we needed,” he said. “We’ll get some rest and get back at it.”

CLEARWATER J. T. Realmuto Jersey , Fla. (AP) — Byron Buxton was 0 for 3 for the Minnesota Twins in a 4-2 rain-shortened, seven-inning win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday.Buxton had two homers, a double and 10 RBIs in five plate appearances.“We haven’t played very many games out here and he’s already shown everyone who’s watching he can do a lot of things http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-starlin-castro-jersey ,” first-year Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. “He is as impactful as any player in the game.”The 25-year old hit .156 with four RBIs over 28 games in an injury-marred season in 2018 when he dealt with migraines, a broken toe plus hand and wrist issues. He batted .300 with 11 home runs, 35 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in 57 games after the All-Star break in 2017.“He can do things on both sides of the ball and on the bases,” Baldelli said of the center fielder. G Fiume/Getty ImagesThe Washington Nationals announced Wednesday that relief pitcher Shawn Kelley was designated for assignment following an outburst in Tuesday's 25-4 win over the New York Mets at Nationals Park.Kelley Miguel Rojas Jersey , who threw his glove to the ground after allowing a home run to Mets outfielder Austin Jackson, said he "acted like a baby," per Daniel Kramer of MLB.com. Nationals manager Dave Martinez called the reliever's actions "disrespectful to the organization.""You're either in or you're in the way. I thought he was in the way," general manager Mike Rizzo said Bryan Holaday Jersey , adding the incident was "selfish."Kelley was enjoying a strong season for Washington out of the bullpen. He compiled a 3.34 ERA and 0.96 WHIP with 32 strikeouts in 32.1 innings. His 35 pitching appearances were tied for the fourth-most on the team.The 34-year-old Kentucky native struggled in 2017 en route to a 7.27 ERA in 33 games, but he finished with a sub-2.65 ERA in each of the previous two years. He owns a 3.73 career ERA across nine-plus seasons.He previously played for the Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees and San Diego Padres.The Nationals must decide whether to place Kelley on waivers, trade him or release him within the next seven days if they don't return him to the active 40-man roster. Since the non-waiver trade deadline passed Tuesday http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-starlin-castro-jersey , he would need to clear waivers before Washington could deal him.Sammy Solis and Justin Miller will take on more prominent roles in the Nats pen in front of closer Kelvin Herrera and setup man Ryan Madson.Kelley should generate interest either via trade or free agency given his track record.

News outlets report the lawsuit filed Friday against the team and the Maryland Stadium Authority says each plaintiff has been stuck in a wheelchair lift while trying to get to their seats. And the view from lower-level wheelchair-accessible seats is obstructed whenever fans stand up.Plaintiff’s attorney Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum says the Americans with Disabilities Act mandated “equal enjoyment of the services.” Another plaintiff’s attorney Roy Halladay Jersey , Kevin D. Docherty, criticized the Orioles for July’s “Celebrate ADA Day.”The plaintiffs seek damages of at least $75,000 each, and a Camden Yards that’s compliant by the next baseball season.The Orioles couldn’t be reached for comment. Attorney General Brian E. Frosh’s office, which represents the stadium authority http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , declined to comment on pending litigation. Best-Case Landing Spot: Chicago CubsBrad Hand, Jeurys Familia and Britton are already off the board. That leaves contenders targeting low-tier relief rentals or high-leverage arms who will demand an exorbitant trade package due to their long-term deals.Then there's Joakim Soria, the best closer bizarrely falling under the radar.The 34-year-old righty has recorded a 2.56 ERA with 49 strikeouts and 10 walks in 38.2 innings. His 2.15 fielding independent pitching (FIP) ranks 14th among qualified relievers, only 10 of whom have generated a higher rate of infield fly balls than his 20 percent.According Cot's Baseball Contracts, he and the Chicago White Sox have a $10 million mutual option with a $1 million buyout for 2019. Based on last year's free-agent signings Roberto Osuna Jersey , the closer could likely exchange some annual salary for extra job security by inking a two-year deal for around $16-18 million.And even if Soria and Chicago would agree to the mutual extension, it makes too much sense for a rebuilding team to sell a flourishing veteran reliever who delivered ERAs of 4.05 and 3.70 in 2016 and 2017, respectively.The Yankees already harbored MLB's top bullpen before adding Britton, so no contender will turn down extra relief help at the right price. While the Chicago Cubs claim the fourth-best bullpen ERA (3.28), they also have the fourth-worst strikeout-to-walk ratio (2.08). Per The Athletic's Patrick Mooney http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , closer Brandon Morrow won't return from the disabled list when eligible on Saturday. He has not worked 45 or more innings in a regular season since 2013.The Cubs and White Sox showed the ability to negotiate a cross-town exchange when the latter sent Jose Quntana to the former last season. The NL contenders should once again solicit a pitching upgrade from the Windy City's AL counterpart.Note: All advanced stats are courtesy of FanGraphs unless otherwise noted.

Bears fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.Another week in the NFL and another win by our beloved 10-4 Chicago Bears. Our fans have been riding high all season long too with our confidence results, currently at 97%. Sure we saw a little dip after the Bears lost each of their four games this year, but overall we’ve stayed confident in the direction of our Bears. This week, the only fanbase that is trending higher than ours are fans of the 12-2 New Orleans Saints,and they are at an understandable 100%. Cleveland Browns’ fans are also at a 97% confidence level, but who can blame them. They have an exciting young team to root for as well. When looking over the confidence level of our NFC North rivals, I can definitely see why Packers’ fans are down in the dumps. Losing to the Bears dropped their percentage 18 points, down to 27%.And I can also understand why the confidence levels from Lions’ fans have been dipping too. Their latest loss, a 14-13 squeeker to the Buffalo Bills White Aaron Lynch Jerseys , has them at 23%.But Vikings’ fans are happy that their team is still alive for a playoff spot, and with as much talent that they have, I can understand them being hopeful.

(AP) — The Chicago Bears signed kicker Cody Parkey to a four-year contract in March hoping he would give them the consistency they have lacked ever since they let Robbie Gould go.That didn’t happen. And now, Parkey is out.A person familiar with the situation said Friday the NFC North champions have decided to release the embattled kicker after one season. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the move had not been announced. The NFL Network first reported the decision.Parkey made 23 of 30 field goals during the regular season for the third-lowest conversion rate in the NFL. He was 42 of 45 on extra points.Six of his misses, counting the playoffs, hit uprights Aaron Lynch Jerseys 2019 , including a 43-yard attempt in the closing seconds of the Bears’ wild-card loss to Philadelphia at Soldier Field that also ricocheted off the crossbar.Parkey’s appearance on the “Today” show a few days later helped erase any remaining doubts about his future in Chicago. It clearly did not sit well with the Bears’ hierarchy.“We always talk about a ‘we’ and not a ‘me’ thing, and we always talk as a team, we win as a team, we lose as a team,” coach Matt Nagy said in January. “You know, I just, I didn’t necessarily think that that was too much of a ‘we’ thing.”Parkey also nailed uprights four times while missing two field goals and two extra points in a victory over Detroit at Soldier Field on Nov. 11. He hit one on a missed PAT at Minnesota in the regular-season finale.In October, Parkey missed wide right on a potential winning 53-yarder in overtime at Miami. Jason Sanders then kicked a 47-yard field goal as time expired in OT to lift the Dolphins to a 31-28 victory.The Bears have struggled in the kicking game since they let Gould — their career scoring leader — go just before the start of the 2016 season. In the three years since then, Chicago has converted 57 of 75 field goals.Gould is set to become a free agent March 13. There has been speculation in Chicago about a reunion with the Bears after spending one season with the New York Giants and the past two with San Francisco.Gould’s wife is from the Chicago area, and they still live there with their three young sons.The kicking game was one of the few sore spots in the Bears’ breakout season. They went 12-4 to win the division in their first year under Nagy after four straight last-place finishes.

While the franchise might be out of the race for the AFC West division Russell Okung Jerseys 2019 , the Bolts have punched their ticket to a date in January and a chance to head to Atlanta for Super Bowl 53.The Bolts offseason however will be one to keep an eye on. With multiple stars heading towards the free agent market, Tom Telesco and his staff will have to do a good job making the draft and free agent market a memorable one. One way the Chargers can start their homework is by watching the bowl games heading into the holidays.Week 3 of Bowlmania is about to begin and Week’s 1 and 2 did not disappoint. With more players looking to make their NFL mark, Jake Hefner comes out strong to help with another addition of Blooming Bolts. This time is a bit different than last. With more teams playing this week, we don’t want you reading and missing out on prospects that could help turn Los Angeles into a power-house moving forward. Instead of doing all of Week 3, this article will just feature games on December 26th and 27th. We will have the next slew of games out Friday morning for all of you to enjoy. Hopefully theses prospects make the final cut of the Chargers’ big board.First Responder BowlBoise State: QB Brett RypienWhen will the succession plan begin for life after Philip Rivers? The Chargers have not drafted a quarterback since they selected Brad Sorensen in the 7th round back in 2013. Boise State QB Brett Rypien is a sleeper prospect with interesting potential. As a 50 game starter for the Broncos, Rypien completed 1,035 passes for 13,578 yards and 90 touchdowns. At 6-foot-2, 202 pounds, Rypien is a traditional “pocket” quarterback displaying good mechanics and nice touch on his throws. He does, however, have a tendency to stare down his receivers and take unnecessary sacks.But when he has time, Rypien is capable of driving the ball down the field with good accuracy. The young quarterback will have an additional opportunity to elevate his draft stock at the East West Shrine Game in the coming weeks.Boston College: DL Zach Allen The Chargers will need to address their pass rush a tad on the outside this season. While Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram are cornerstone pieces, adding depth could allow the franchise to worry less about another position group if they feel the draft class and free agent pool is weak. Allen’s final season for the Eagles is one he’ll remember for quite some time. With 15 tackles for losses and a career high 6.5 sacks, Allen does a great job maneuvering past offensive linemen and working towards the quarterback. Best at a five technique, the 6-5’ defender can play outside or kick in on heavy pass rush packages. With great work ethic and a non-stop motor, Allen would be a nice day 2 selection to add to the Chargers front line. Quick Lane BowlGeorgia Tech: Edge Anree Saint-AmourSaint-Amour is an interesting prospect that plays with a physical style and a consistent motor. His breakout year with the Yellow Jackets came this season as Saint-Amour posted 45 tackles, eleven for loss and 4.5 sacks. Possessing decent size (6’3, 245lbs) and length, Saint-Amour is still very Raw in his skill set.When evaluating Saint-Amour’s game, the biggest question will be in regards to position fit. He doesn’t have the speed to play as an OLB but is also too light to produce as a defensive end in the NFL. Saint-Amour will gain favor with teams for his attitude and physical traits, but projects as a rookie free agent.Minnesota: DE Carter Coughlin The Chargers should fix their defensive line in the draft both early and late. Having a pass rush makes a good defense great and allows a team to not have to fix every other need in a single draft. Bosa and Ingram are great but their unit behind him has been lackluster this season. Coughlin might not declare but if he does, he’s the best player on the Minnesota roster. An excellent pass rusher, Coughlin has finished the past two season with double-digit tackle for losses season and is just half a sack away from finishing with 10 takedowns on the year. Excellent on the outside, the junior defender swipes his opponent away and quickly drags opponents down behind the line of scrimmage. While he’s very raw, Coughlin would be a nice day-2 pickup if the free agent pool works out in the Chargers’ favor. Cheez-It BowlTCU: Edge Ben BanoguBanogu has been a huge contributor since joining the Horned Frogs defense in 2017. Over the past two seasons, Banogu has recorded 107 total tackles, 33.5 for loss and 16 sacks. At 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, Banogu is versatile enough to rush the passer from multiple positions along the defensive line. He plays physical off of the edge with good athleticism and the speed to chase down runners. Banogu uses his length well on the rush when shedding blocks from offensive lineman.He is not the most polished pass rusher and will need to add a broader arsenal to his hand movement techniques. Banogu will need to display some refinement during draft evaluations and will have to test well to determine what position he is best suited for at the next level. Whether its as a defensive end or an outside linebacker, Banogu projects as a mid-round pick.California: LB Alex Funches The Bolts’ linebacker room is in need of an overhaul after the season. Denzel Perryman is likely heading to free agency while Jatavis Brown might be the only solid starting option after coming around mid-year. While Kyzir White was a solid WILL backer during his playing time, injuries could ruin a young player’s career. The Golden Bears have little to no draft eligible players worth selecting in this upcoming draft season but if there’s one to look at on day-3, Funches would be the selection. The senior linebacker has started for two seasons and collected 69 total tackles during his time. Best used as a SAM backer, Funches attacks the line of scrimmage and is thriving when stopping the run. A gap stopper, the Golden Bear could be a nice special teams player while learning Gus Bradley’s defense. Independence BowlTemple: CB Rock Ya-SinA transfer from Presbyterian College, Ya-Sin’s production has created plenty of buzz among NFL scouts. In 2018 White Virgil Green Jerseys , he made 47 tackles, 12 passes defended, and two interceptions. While those stats may not sound earth shattering, Ya-Sin only allowed just over half of the completions that were thrown in his direction. He finished with the second-highest overall grade among cornerbacks according to Pro Football Focus. At 6’2, 190 pounds, Ya-Sin is able to contend with bigger receivers.He displays good ball skills and plays with an attitude. As one of the best defensive prospects for the Owls, Ya-Sin has a great opportunity to be a high-upside mid-round selection. The Chargers cornerbacks have regressed as a unit since last season and the team should be in the market for another addition in the draft.Duke: QB Daniel Jones If Philip Rivers is going to continue to play for Los Angeles, Tom Telesco should consider at least trying to find a better Garrett Grayson. Grayson fizzled out during his time in New Orleans but the Saints were willing to use a mid-round selection to see what their future could potentially hold. If Jones falls to the late second round, he should be in play for the future. Perhaps the most River-esque quarterback in the draft, Jones has been one, if not the only, reason the Blue Devils even made a bowl game this season. At 6’5, Jones fits the mold of what many call the “prototypical quarterback”, but he also has the arm strength and mobility to take matters into his own hands by running on busted plays. While his accuracy will need some work, as will his decision-making, Jones is possibly the most gritty quarterback in the class. Pinstripe Bowl Wisconsin: OT David Edwards This is an easy grade. The Chargers are moving forward with Rivers and will need to protect him the best they can. While their interior is a bigger problem, Sam Tevi could shift back inside and take over at offensive guard should the Bolts want to address their right tackle needs. With the release of Joe Barksdale, Los Angeles should really consider drafting an offensive tackle with their first pick come April. A key blocker up front for starting running back Jonathan Taylor, the former quarterback turned right tackle has great speed, a long frame to extend his body in blocks and will be aggressive in the trenches. While still in need for better footwork in pass protection, Edwards has the size and speed to reach second level defenders as a lead blocker in the run game. If defensive line and secondary options are out, Edwards should be on Telesco’s short list.Texas Bowl Vanderbilt: CB Joejuan WilliamsWilliams will be an intriguing prospect to monitor over the next few months. Standing 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, Williams is one of the biggest defensive prospects in this upcoming draft. Announcing that he will be forgoing his senior season back in November, Williams finishes his tenure with the Commodores registering 114 total tackles, four interceptions and 22 passes defended. Physical and athletic, he muscles receivers off their routes to contend throws. He shows his best work as a press corner, displaying good ball skills and is very good in run support.His tackling ability, while decent, needs to be refined as Williams will occasionally go too high when he attempts to wrap up receivers. His down field speed will be a focal point during draft evaluations as he is not a burner and not too fast off of the snap. Williams projects more as a developmental prospect but with time, his size, length and physicality could allow him to grow into a starter.Baylor: WR Jalen Hurd The Bolts wide receiver room could be willing to add another face this offseason depending on corresponding moves. Tyrell Williams will be wanting a lucrative contract and Los Angeles hasn’t been known in the past to pay their pass catchers. Travis Benjamin had one good game but still has had a horrendous season. Outside of Mike Williams and Keenan Allen, no one is really safe. Hurd fits the exact mold that could replace Williams as a late round selection. At 6’4 and great speed, Hurd has natural hands from his time as a do-it-all running back for Tennessee. A YAC-machine, the former Vols star averaged 13.7 yards per catch and did a great job working through traffic to collect first downs for the Bears offense. While he’s questionable to play against Vanderbilt, if he does Virgil Green Jerseys 2019 , his red zone capability is going to be a difference-maker for Baylor. A sixth-round pick is worth it for the Bolts offense. After all they've been through, a two-touchdown deficit wasn't going to faze the Los Angeles Chargers."We've been rock-bottom, so it's only up," running back Melvin Gordon said after the Chargers rallied for a 29-27 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday."We know how to respond when we go down. We always feel like we got the players to be in the game, regardless of how much someone goes up."Gordon played a significant part in the comeback, rushing for 104 yards on 15 carries to go with his seven receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown. It is the sixth 100-yard rushing game of Gordon's career and his first since last Oct. 29 against New England."He ran outstanding. There are some times when he could have gone out of bounds but he stayed between the yard lines and made plays," coach Anthony Lynn said.Philip Rivers threw for 250 yards and three touchdowns as the Chargers improved to 2-2, the first time since 2015 that they are .500 after the first quarter of the season and a long way from their 0-4 start last season."It was good to see the resiliency of this team and how they bounced back. We played good, complementary football," Lynn said.Gordon and Austin Ekeler averaged 5.6 yards per carry against a Niners defense that was 10th against the run and allowing only 97 yards per game. It is the first time in 11 games that San Francisco had allowed a 100-yard rusher."Gordon was playing very well. He opened up in the second half," 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster said.The Chargers trailed 17-6 with 4:59 remaining in the second quarter then scored 20 straight points, including 11 in the final 47 seconds of the first half to tie it at 17 at halftime.Caleb Sturgis had three field goals, including one from 21 yards with 7:41 left that gave the Chargers the lead, but he had an eventful day with two missed extra points.C.J. Beathard, who got the start for San Francisco (1-3) after Jimmy Garoppolo's season-ending knee injury, was 23 of 37 for 298 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. The last interception came with 2:38 remaining when Isaac Rochell picked off a pass intended for Alfred Morris at the Niners 19. The Chargers then ran out the clock."I thought he played well," Niners coach Kyle Shanahan said. "He played very tough. Made some great plays, especially in some of the situations. With a lot of guys going in and out, he handled a lot of adversity well and a little chaos due to injuries."Beathard's first TD toss of 2 yards to Kendrick Bourne gave the Niners a 14-0 lead with 3:53 remaining in the first quarter. His 82-yarder to George Kittle with 2:50 remaining in the third quarter helped end of run where they had three three-and-outs and an interception."It felt a lot more comfortable being out there and being in control. It definitely felt a lot more comfortable than last year," said Beathard, who lost five of six starts last season.EXTRA-POINT WOESThe Chargers have missed eight PATs since the start of last season, which is the most in the league. Los Angeles has missed 10 extra points since the kick was moved back in 2015 and is one of eight teams in the league to have missed 10 or more.VERSATILE BACKSGordon and Ekeler each caught touchdowns, the first time the Chargers have had two running backs catch touchdowns since Jacob Hester and Darren Sproles did it on Nov. 22, 2010, against Denver.Ekeler's 22-yard reception on a go pattern drew the Chargers within 17-14 late in the second quarter. Gordon's 6-yard catch in the third quarter would give Los Angeles a 23-17 lead.Rivers, who was 25 of 39, completed passes to eight players with Gordon and Ekeler combining for nine receptions and 81 yards.MOVING ON UPRivers surpassed John Elway for the eighth-most yards in NFL history. He has 51,504 yards in his 15-year career while Elway had 51,475."Those are guys I had posters of on my wall, so just to be mentioned with them is definitely special," Rivers said.HELD IN CHECKSan Francisco's Matt Breida came in tied for the league lead in rushing (295 yards) but he was held to 39 yards on nine carries.Lynn said after the game that stopping the run was something they put extra emphasis on in practice all week.INJURIESNiners: Wide receiver Dante Pettis and left tackle Joe Staley suffered knee injuries. Staley's injury meant San Francisco had to reshuffle its offensive line, moving first-round pick Mike McGlinchey to left tackle and putting Garry Gilliam at right tackle.Chargers: Wide receiver Travis Benjamin, who missed the past two games due to a foot injury, did not play during the second half. He had a catch for 2 yards. Left tackle Russell Okung did not play in the second half due to a groin injury.Follow Joe Reedy at joereedy Custom Green Bay Packers Jerseys

Week 8 Power Rankings: Players who must step up on all 32 teams - ESPNNeed more from: CB Jalen Mills. The Eagles cornerback has allowed a league-high 541 yards in coverage as the nearest defender Wilbert Montgomery Jerseys 2019 , according to NFL Next Gen Stats. Philadelphia as a whole has given up a league-worst 1,410 yards to wide receivers and eight touchdowns, as compared to just two interceptions.12 things we learned from the Eagles’ loss to the Panthers - BGNShockingly, the Eagles continue to prove to be vulnerable at cornerback. It was Mills who gave up the 4th-and-10 after he slipped and left Torrey Smith wide open. He made matters worse by whiffing on the tackle attempt. Ronald Darby left Devin Funchess open for an easy touchdown after biting on a sluggo at a time when he should’ve been more conservative in the game. In possibly related news, the Eagles are reportedly interested in trading for Patrick Peterson.The Kist & Solak Show #31: Injuries, Panic, Trades, & All-22 - BGN RadioJoin Michael Kist and Benjamin Solak in a LOADED show that covers Derek Barnett’s injuries, panic buttons being pressed, trades for Patrick Peterson, coverage gripes, and a gaggle of notes regarding the Eagles-Panthers coaches film plus much more!Eagles vs. Jaguars: Five matchups to watch - PhillyVoiceAs noted above, the Jaguars lost starting LT Cam Robinson for the season with a torn ACL. Filling in for him initially was Josh Wells, who then injured his groin. The Jags placed Wells on IR, and signed former Giants bust Ereck Flowers. Over the last two games, the Jags have started Josh Walker at LT. Walker is a former undrafted guard who has bounced around the league, and had never previously started an NFL game. He has not been good, as you might expect. To be determined if the Jags stick with Walker, or if they give someone else (Flowers, maybe?) a shot. With the loss of Derek Barnett for the season with a shoulder injury, Michael Bennett will fill in as the starting right defensive end. This season, there’s an argument to be made that Bennett has been the Eagles’ most disruptive edge rusher. This is a matchup that a veteran like Bennett must dominate, and if the Jaguars slide protection his way, the rest of the Eagles’ defensive line must capitalize on their one-on-one opportunities.Bank On Jim Schwartz To Fix The Defense - PE.comYou want to criticize Schwartz for his game plan? Go ahead. That’s part of the business. Nobody understands that better than Schwartz. But also respect his honesty and the body of work he’s built over the years and know that he’s one of the NFL’s brilliant defensive minds. The Eagles allowed 21 points on Sunday. All of them came in a 15-minute blitz. As Schwartz said on Tuesday, Carolina and quarterback Cam Newton deserve credit, too. It’s tough as far as optics go, yes, but it’s important to live and learn and make corrections for the next week.Ranking all 32 NFL teams’ coverage units after Week 7 - PFF21 - TEAM COVERAGE GRADE: 68.7.

Those three teams have really been pretty aggressive for the most part trying to see exactly what it would take to make a trade become a reality.”John DeFilippo, Kris Richard among coaching names to watch - NFL.comVikings OC John DeFilippo: If Minnesota’s offense keeps rolling Black Tommy McDonald Jerseys , this might end up being the hottest name in this hiring cycle, period. DeFilippo, 40, is sharp, driven, detailed and a lifetime QB guy going back to his college playing days. He was Carson Wentz’s position coach the past two seasons in Philadelphia. Now he’s putting his stamp on Kirk Cousins, who’s on pace to set career highs in passing yards (4,941) and touchdowns (32) in a new offense, and showing he can put the likes of undrafted receiver Adam Thielen in position to succeed week after week. DeFilippo interviewed with the 49ers after the 2015 season (which he spent as the Browns’ OC on a doomed staff) and the Cardinals and Bears this past year.Week 7 DVOA Ratings - Football OutsidersThe Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams remain on top of the DVOA ratings, far ahead of the rest of the league. But below these top teams, there’s a lot of movement up and down. What on earth are the Denver Broncos doing at No. 5? We explain. Plus: Buffalo is now the worst offense in DVOA history.All the Players Who Could Move Before the 2018 NFL Trade Deadline - The RingerPossible Destination: The Eagles reportedly called the Bills about reacquiring their former star running back, who was ousted in Chip Kelly’s 2015 purge, after lead back Jay Ajayi tore his ACL earlier this month. Bills head coach Sean McDermott responded to questions about the report by saying, “We get calls all the time.” After his injury on Sunday, McCoy is still in the concussion protocol, and staying in Buffalo for the rest of the season seems more probable than being dealt.Why did the Jaguars go back to Blake Bortles? - Big Cat CountryI think the fact that the game is in another country this weekend does have something to do with it. Bortles has made the London trip multiple ways and know show to handle the abnormal week and travel while still preparing as the starting quarterback. Making the switch to Kessler on the same week you change everything for international travel is a large under taking and if nothing else, NFL coaches like what they’re familiar with.NFL Panic Index 2018: Why is the Eagles’ Super Bowl hangover so bad? - SB NationTalk about a hangover. Eagles fans are stumbling along, halfway through the season, with waning good feelings about the defending Super Bowl champs being 3-4 to start the season. The latest FanPulse survey revealed that just 38 percent of Eagles fans were confident about the direction of the team right now. So what’s wrong with the Eagles? You can point to a few different things. Big plays are one problem. The offense was the 15th best at generating them last season. This year, they were 22nd prior to a Week 7 loss to the Panthers. On the other side of the ball, the defense was the 4h best at preventing big plays; they’re 28th this year, so far....Social Media Information:BGN Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBGN Twitter: Follow @BleedingGreenBGN Manager: Brandon Lee Gowton: Follow @BrandonGowtonBGN Radio Twitter: Follow @BGN_Radio The 2018 Philadelphia Eagles season unfortunately came to an end last Sunday.

Catch of the year?We’ve all seen Keelan Cole’s absolute jewel of a grab at least one hundred times over the past twenty-four hours. Cole towered over New England Patriots cornerback Eric Rowe with a perfectly timed jump and enveloped the Duke like it was a tennis ball in a hypnagogic moment that put time at an absolute standstill.When the Jacksonville Jaguars opened up their preliminary media availability at the beginning of the 2018 offseason A.J. Bouye Jerseys 2019 , one of the names were not like the others. Despite finishing the 2017 season with the highest yards per catch in the entire NFL (18.4), not even the most ardent of Jaguars fans thought that Keelan Cole had arrived. Based on Cole’s selection among franchise faces including Jalen Ramsey, Calais Campbell, and Leonard Fournette, this coaching staff was obviously in disagreement.You shouldn’t be surprisedCole isn’t the biggest (6’0” 194-pounds) or the fastest (4.59 40-yard dash at his pro day) receiver, yet he somehow still managed to catch the eye of the Jaguars scouting department despite playing at second division Kentucky Wesleyan. In college, Cole plied his trade in from of a 3,000-person maximum capacity home crowd. Players that are shrouded in such obscurity need to demonstrate an elite trait (usually speed) or pure dominance at his level of competition, and based on his testing numbers, Cole obviously didn’t exhibit the former. The latter, however, was written in plain view. Since becoming a full-time starter his sophomore year, Cole didn’t finish a single season with less than 1 Black Calais Campbell Jerseys ,300 receiving yards. He had 21 receiving touchdowns as a true sophomore and averaged close to 25 yards per catch as a senior. Over his four years as a Panther, Cole broke almost every school receiving record that was held previously by Secdrick Robinson.As of the beginning of the 2017 season, only 90 division two players were on NFL rosters, including the practice squad. Regardless of his domination at the division two level, the odds of him earning a tryout, let alone a final 53-man roster spot, hovered around five percent. So why is he special?He’s married to the gameIn a conversation with Dan Hellie earlier this year, Keelan Cole shared that he doesn’t watch TV or Hulu or Netflix at home. He simply can’t be bothered with those types of distractions if he wants to become the best at his position. Instead, he winds down by firing up YouTube clips of all the receiving greats. Moss. Rice.OBJAlways observing, always gleaning. Cole’s insatiable appetite to learn and bolster his route tree is an enormous reason for his quick and unexpected development. Going up against the NFL’s top cornerback tandem on a daily basis doesn’t hurt, either. Jaguars wide receiver coach Keenan McCardell seems to coach Cole the toughest of all his wide receivers, and the reason for that is probably because he sees so much potential in Cole. But perhaps its more than that.Perhaps its because he sees a bit of himself in ColeMcCardell was a 12th round draft pick by the Washington Redskins out of UNLV in the 1991 draft. When you compare that to the present-day seven round draft model, that doesn’t even make McCardell a priority free agent. McCardell never even donned the Redskins uniform despite earning a Super Bowl ring on injured reserve and was cut after the 1991 season before latching on with the Cleveland Browns. When comparing his career arc with Keelan Cole’s thus far Calais Campbell Jerseys 2019 , the advantage for Cole is shocking; the potential incalculable.And he’s becoming more completeNot only is Cole enhancing his route running, separation, and spectacular catch making ability, he’s becoming a well-rounded receiver. While no play tops his highlight reel snag, his block on Dede Westbrook’s game-clinching touchdown catch was paramount to sealing last week’s game.Unlike Cole’s velcro catch, this isn’t just a hand-plucked highlight of one big play. Cole has amped up his aggressiveness at the point of attack in the wake of losing veteran leader and marquee run blocker Marqise Lee, and his coaches have noticed. In an interview after the game, Cole was asked how he made that catch. The undrafted gem replied with this:Moss. Rice. OBJ. Better add Cole to that YouTube playlist. The Jacksonville Jaguars have released Barry Church, a safety who was benched last month but who started 27 consecutive games over two seasons.The Jaguars (4-9) made the move Friday and activated offensive tackle Josh Wells from injured reserve.Church was benched following a loss at Buffalo last month and was inactive last week at Tennessee. Rookie Ronnie Harrison replaced him in the starting lineup. The Jaguars decided to cut Church loose and let him try to sign elsewhere for rest of the season.He has 572 tackles and 10 interceptions in nine seasons. Church spent the first seven years of his NFL career with Dallas. He signed a four-year, $26 million contract with Jacksonville in 2017.The Jaguars also placed offensive tackle Josh Walker on injured reserve and promoted defensive lineman Lyndon Johnson from the practice squad. They also waived tight end Niles Paul (non-football injury) from injured reserve.
