Archie Manning had a firm rule<a href="http://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-kyle-rudolph-jersey-c-2_25.html"> Kyle Rudolph Womens Jersey</a>  when watching his sons — and now his grandkids — play sports.

"My theory was, I always had a little talk with myself before I ever got out of the car: you're going to sit up on the top row and keep your mouth shut," he said.

If anyone has earned the right to speak up it's Manning. A Hall of Famer who starred with Ole Miss and the New Orleans Saints, he raised two sons, Peyton and Eli, who went on to win Super Bowls. Yet Manning — who will be the featured guest at this year's Commercial Appeal Sports Awards at the Orpheum on June 9 — said parents have to know their role, regardless of how successful they may have been.

"My role as a parent was to encourage and support," he said. "You're there after a loss or a disappointment and you don't go overboard <a href="http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-moritz-boehringer-jersey-c-2_16.html">http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-moritz-boehringer-jersey-c-2_16.html</a> if they're having a bad day. And these (high school) coaches, they're not in it for money; they're in it because they love working with youngsters. The officials aren't getting rich; they're doing the best job they can."

Not surprisingly, Manning has fond memories of his own high school career in Drew, Miss. In addition to football, the 67-year-old played basketball (reaching the state tournament as a senior), baseball (beginning his varsity career as a seventh-grader) and ran track.

"I tell everybody it was like Mayberry," he said. "It was just a rural farm community ... a wonderful little town in the Mississippi Delta. We <a href="http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-jerry-rice-jersey-c-1_27.html">Jerry Rice Womens Jersey</a> had a group of us, the athletes, and we played all sports. My teammates weren't as big or fast as the teammates I had in college and the pros, but they had as much heart.

"I was valedictorian of my high school class but what I don't tell people is that there were only 48 of us in the class. I remember one time — we had four football coaches and they had to dress out and practice with us because we were a little thin. I don't know that that's happened very often."

Numbers — and of course talent — dictated that Manning would be an all-arounder in high school. In an era where the emphasis is increasingly on specialization, he said it's important to let kids try as many things as they can.

"Obviously, you may have a prodigy, a real good tennis player or a golfer who can break 80 as a 10-year-old," he said. "In that case, you may want<a href="http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-russell-okung-jersey-c-1_44.html">http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-russell-okung-jersey-c-1_44.html</a>  to (specialize). But I'm not as big on that at a young age. It could be playing the piano or (acting in) plays ... you just want kids to stay busy. You can't force them into sports."

We’re hours away from the start of the 2017 NFL Draft.  While the Indianapolis Colts have made some nice roster additions to their<a href="http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-cobi-hamilton-jersey-c-2_73.html">http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-cobi-hamilton-jersey-c-2_73.html</a>  defense, there are still plenty of holes to fill.

After focusing on the Indianapolis Colts offensive needs a few days ago, we’ll now now focus on the team’s defensive needs:

Interior Defense

Make no mistake about it, the addition of Jonathan Haskins is huge!  As was written a few days ago, Haskins is the best interior defensive lineman the Indianapolis Colts have had since Anthony ‘Booger’ McFarland.  He is a run stopping force the Colts have lacked for years.  Adding Haskins allows David Parry and Al Woods to move to a backup role.

Henry Anderson, when healthy, is a solid defensive end.  He only started 2 games in 2016 and registered just 12 tackles.  In 2015, he registered 31 tackles and a sack while starting 9 games.  Hassan Ridgeway showed that he is a capable defensive tackle in the NFL; however, he is still young.  T.Y. McGill is the only other defensive <a href="http://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-34-josh-ferguson-jersey-c-1_19.html">Josh Ferguson Womens Jersey</a> tackle listed on the Colts roster.  If the Colts have any injury concerns with Anderson, they may want to target another defensive end in the draft.

At defensive end, the Colts have even less depth.  Kendall Langford is serviceable, but like Henry Anderson, injuries plagued Langford in 2016.  The Colts signed Margus Hunt this offseason, but he is probably a better backup – not a starter.  Kristjan Sokoli has played in just 1 game in the NFL.

Outside Linebackers

We hear it all the time from the Indianapolis Colts front office.  They want pass rushers.  While they improved their outside linebacking corp with the addition of John Simon, Jabaal Sheard, and Barkevious Mingo, the Colts would be vastly improved if they drafted a pass rushing OLB in the early rounds of the draft.  Beyond Simon, Sheard and Mingo, the Colts have no other outside linebackers on the roster that started an NFL game last season.

Inside Linebackers

小马在线卫内部有一个明显的需要。我' 中号不相信,埃德温·杰克逊和安东尼奥·莫里森是答案。小马队在今年夏天添加了Sean Spence,这将增加竞争对手,但可能不是答案。小马队必须在草案中解决这个问题。

反击

Vontae Davis在2016年有一个糟糕的一年.Pro Football Focus(需要订阅)在2016年排名第47.3,排名第98位。相比之下,他排名在2014年为94.6,在2015年排名为82.2。这是一个糟糕的一年,还是一个主要的<a href =“http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-craig-robertson -jersey-c-1_10.html“> http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-craig-robertson-jersey-c-1_10.html </a> 28岁的衰落迹象?唯一比可观的衰落更可怕的事实是,现在,拉沙曼·梅尔文是戴维斯对手的主角。梅尔文在2016年看起来绝对迷失了。小马队有其他角色的球员,但随着大流士巴特勒的安全行动,小马队在角卫里还有另外一个需求。

安全

克莱顿·凯瑟斯(Clayton Geathers)在印第安纳波利斯小马(Indianapolis Colts)的两年时间里已经表现出安全的希望。我听起来像是一个破碎的记录,但是Geathers在上赛季失去了7场比赛之后才能保持健康。小马队去年四月份的第二轮选中了TJ Green,在新秀季节很生气。仍然有一些希望,绿色<a href="http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-hunter-henry-jersey-c-1_23.html">亨特亨利女子泽西</a>将发展。在此期间,大流士巴特勒将从角卫到安全。小马队拥有谁在安全看了行动,去年一些其他球员,我不会“ 指望安全是一大重点,为小马队在选秀- 至少不是早期。

We’re hours away from the start of the 2017 NFL Draft.  While the Indianapolis Colts have made some nice roster additions to their<a href="http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-cobi-hamilton-jersey-c-2_73.html">http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-cobi-hamilton-jersey-c-2_73.html</a>  defense, there are still plenty of holes to fill.

Inside Linebackers

The Colts have a glaring need at inside linebacker.  I’m not convinced that Edwin Jackson and Antonio Morrison are the answers.  The Colts added Sean Spence this offseason who will add competition, but is probably not the answer.  The Colts must address this position in the draft.

Cornerback

Vontae Davis had a bad year in 2016.  Pro Football Focus (subscription required) ranked him out at a 47.3 in 2016, the 98th ranked player at the position.  In comparison, he ranked out at a 94.6 in 2014 and an 82.2 in 2015.  Was it a bad year, or a major <a href="http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-craig-robertson-jersey-c-1_10.html">http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-craig-robertson-jersey-c-1_10.html</a> sign of decline for the 28 year old?  The only thing more scary than a sizable decline is the fact that right now, Rashaan Melvin is the leading candidate to play opposite Davis.  Melvin looked absolutely lost at times in 2016.  The Colts have other role players, but with the likely move of Darius Butler to safety, the Colts have another glaring need at cornerback.

Safety

Clayton Geathers has shown promise at safety in his 2 years with the Indianapolis Colts.  I sound like a broken record, but Geathers just has to stay healthy after missing 7 games last season.  The Colts selected T.J. Green in the second round last April and was pretty raw in his rookie season.  There is still some hope that Green<a href="http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-hunter-henry-jersey-c-1_23.html">Hunter Henry Womens Jersey</a>  will develop.  In the meantime, Darius Butler will move from cornerback to safety.  The Colts have some other players who saw action at safety last year and I wouldn’t expect safety to be a big focus for the Colts in the draft – at least not early on.

Before moving on to his offseason routine, Jerick McKinnon had to spend some time reflecting on his 2016 season – not so much to focus on what went wrong, but on what he could learn.

Injuries and struggles on the offensive line<a href="http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-drew-kaser-jersey-c-1_21.html">Drew Kaser Womens Jersey</a>  made McKinnon’s first full year as a feature back a rough ride. He averaged just 3.4 Yards Per Carry, a significant drop off from 4.9 YPC over his first two seasons.

According to Sporting Charts, only four running backs with more than 100 carries had a higher percentage of runs stuffed in the backfield. And when he ran the ball up the middle, the Vikings’ runner nicknamed “Jet” was stalled for 2.6 YPC.

McKinnon probably watched Oakland and Dallas running backs glide through gigantic holes like a kid stuck inside with the flu while his friends played outside. But blaming teammates – publicly or privately – usually doesn’t do much good. So instead he looked at the in-season tweaks that led to an improvement over the last six games in which he averaged a solid 4.1 YPC.

“My first year I was more of a patient guy, setting my runs up, but with the way everybody was switching in and out [on the offensive line], it made me get used to making that one cut sometimes,” McKinnon said over the phone on Friday. “Toward the end of the season I was more of a one-cut guy. At the beginning, I wasn’t doing anything different than I did the first two seasons. So after turning the page, working <a href="http://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-jerick-mckinnon-jersey-c-2_5.html"> Jerick Mckinnon Youth Jersey</a> out this offseason, my mindset has been to come back strong, be at the best that I can be and produce at the level I know I can produce.”

With six months between season’s end and training camp’s open, offseason plans are an art form for NFL players and McKinnon has spent more than two months of his with the Kendrick Lamar of offseason workouts: Adrian Peterson.

McKinnon and Peterson have formed a bond over the past three seasons – which doesn’t always happen between aging superstar and up-and-comer, just ask Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. But A.P. was a McKinnon fan from Day 1.

“He’s pretty impressive and there’s not too many guys who impress me like that, especially rookies coming in,” Peterson told The Star Tribune back in 2014. “He’s been able to do some real good things in the offense, picking it up well and just his running style.”

In his rookie year, McKinnon impressively filled in for Peterson while the superstar was suspended, gaining 538 yards on 113 carries, then acted as a change-of-pace back in 2015.

“He took me in from the start, coming into the league, he taught me a lot,” McKinnon said. “I think my game is a little different from some of the other backs around the league and the things that I do. It’s always good to have somebody like that on your side supporting you, pushing you and just making me better overall as a player. I can’t thank him enough.”

As only he can, McKinnon succinctly summarized how Peterson’s absence will feel for everyone involved with the Vikings and their fans.

“It’s going to be weird,” he said, laughing.

现在即将成立的25岁的球员在后场有一个新的同伴。维京人在本赛季早些时候签署了前攻击拉脱维斯·穆雷(Latavius Murray)的攻略。去年,突击队利用默里作为三重奏组的一部分,获得了1,922码,在NFL中排名第六。

麦金农理解这是一个两冲打联盟。上个赛季,只有一次跑回了300次(Ezekiel Elliott),这是<a href="http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-sam-bradford-jersey-c-2_7.html"> http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-sam-bradford-jersey-c-2_7.html </A> 相对于2006年的时候有10个背上有300多名奔涌,所以它' s ^可能新的同事们都会看到充足的玩耍时间。 

“ 签署新合同后,我发短信给他,他似乎是一个很酷的人,所以我刚刚告诉他,我最后只想进来参加比赛,这样他就能很好的和他一起学习他,“ 麦金农说。“ 他‘ s ^被任命为一个职业杯,因此他’ 曾多次在联赛中取得成功。我' 很期待得到在那里,与他一起工作,对他竞争,了解他是怎么想对某些事情,让他的观点在某些情况下,并运行和剧本,这样的东西。“

随着他的合同在这个赛季之后出现,麦肯农需要明确表示,后场组合应该是50-50分或更好的方向。上个赛季,临时(现在全职)进攻协调员帕特·舒尔(Pat Shurmur)使用麦金农(McKinnon)作为传球比赛的一部分需要更长的时间。在最后六个星期,他共接受了43次接待中的31次。而在第三名,他仅仅是对萨姆·布拉德福德的检查,每场接收场均3.8码。

这一次,Shurmur得到实现一个剧本是“ 真完全了。维京人的进攻线应在2017年改善。<a href="http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-joshua-garnett-jersey-c-1_31.html"> http:// www 通过添加滑雪手Mike Remmers和Riley Reiff,他们比传球手更好,跑步比赛 

情况应该更好。其余的由麦肯农证明,2014年和2015年版本比2016年更接近现实。

As only he can, McKinnon succinctly summarized how Peterson’s absence will feel for everyone involved with the Vikings and their fans.

“It’s going to be weird,” he said, laughing.

Now the soon-to-be 25-year-old playmaker has a new bandmate in the backfield. The Vikings signed former Raiders running back Latavius Murray earlier this offseason. Last year, the Raiders used Murray as part of a trio that gained 1,922 yards, sixth most in the NFL.

McKinnon understands it’s a one-two punch league. Only one running back carried the ball 300 times last season (Ezekiel Elliott) as<a href="http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-sam-bradford-jersey-c-2_7.html">http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-sam-bradford-jersey-c-2_7.html</a>  opposed to 2006 when there were 10 backs with 300-plus rushes, so it’s likely that the new co-workers will both see plenty of playing time.

“I texted him after he signed the new contract to congratulate him, he seems like a cool guy so I just told him that, on my end, I just want to come in and compete so it will be good working with him and learning from him,” McKinnon said. “He’s been named to one Pro Bowl, so he’s had success in the league. I’m looking forward to getting in there, working with him, competing against him, learning about how he thinks about certain things, getting his point of view on certain situations and runs and plays, stuff like that.”

With his contract coming up after this season, McKinnon needs to make it clear that the backfield combination should be a 50-50 split or better in his direction. Last season, it took longer than it should have for interim (and now full-time) offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to use McKinnon as part of the passing game. In the final six weeks, he caught 31 of his total 43 receptions. And on third downs, he was merely a check down for Sam Bradford, gaining just 3.8 Yards Per Reception.

This time around, Shurmur gets to implement a playbook that’s entirely his. And the Vikings’ offensive line should be improved in 2017<a href="http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-joshua-garnett-jersey-c-1_31.html">http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-joshua-garnett-jersey-c-1_31.html</a>  by adding tackles Mike Remmers and Riley Reiff, who are better run than pass blockers.

Circumstances should be better. The rest is up to McKinnon to prove the 2014 and 2015 versions were closer to reality than 2016.

Before moving on to his offseason routine, Jerick McKinnon had to spend some time reflecting on his 2016 season – not so much to focus on what went wrong, but on what he could learn.

“My first year I was more of a patient guy, setting my runs up, but with the way everybody was switching in and out [on the offensive line], it made me get used to making that one cut sometimes,” McKinnon said over the phone on Friday. “Toward the end of the season I was more of a one-cut guy. At the beginning, I wasn’t doing anything different than I did the first two seasons. So after turning the page, working <a href="http://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-jerick-mckinnon-jersey-c-2_5.html"> Jerick Mckinnon Youth Jersey</a> out this offseason, my mindset has been to come back strong, be at the best that I can be and produce at the level I know I can produce.”

With six months between season’s end and training camp’s open, offseason plans are an art form for NFL players and McKinnon has spent more than two months of his with the Kendrick Lamar of offseason workouts: Adrian Peterson.

McKinnon and Peterson have formed a bond over the past three seasons – which doesn’t always happen between aging superstar and up-and-comer, just ask Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. But A.P. was a McKinnon fan from Day 1.

“He’s pretty impressive and there’s not too many guys who impress me like that, especially rookies coming in,” Peterson told The Star Tribune back in 2014. “He’s been able to do some real good things in the offense, picking it up well and just his running style.”

In his rookie year, McKinnon impressively filled in for Peterson while the superstar was suspended, gaining 538 yards on 113 carries, then acted as a change-of-pace back in 2015.

“He took me in from the start, coming into the league, he taught me a lot,” McKinnon said. “I think my game is a little different from some of the other backs around the league and the things that I do. It’s always good to have somebody like that on your side supporting you, pushing you and just making me better overall as a player. I can’t thank him enough.”

As only he can, McKinnon succinctly summarized how Peterson’s absence will feel for everyone involved with the Vikings and their fans.

“It’s going to be weird,” he said, laughing.

Now the soon-to-be 25-year-old playmaker has a new bandmate in the backfield. The Vikings signed former Raiders running back Latavius Murray earlier this offseason. Last year, the Raiders used Murray as part of a trio that gained 1,922 yards, sixth most in the NFL.

McKinnon understands it’s a one-two punch league. Only one running back carried the ball 300 times last season (Ezekiel Elliott) as<a href="http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-sam-bradford-jersey-c-2_7.html">http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-sam-bradford-jersey-c-2_7.html</a>  opposed to 2006 when there were 10 backs with 300-plus rushes, so it’s likely that the new co-workers will both see plenty of playing time.

“I texted him after he signed the new contract to congratulate him, he seems like a cool guy so I just told him that, on my end, I just want to come in and compete so it will be good working with him and learning from him,” McKinnon said. “He’s been named to one Pro Bowl, so he’s had success in the league. I’m looking forward to getting in there, working with him, competing against him, learning about how he thinks about certain things, getting his point of view on certain situations and runs and plays, stuff like that.”

With his contract coming up after this season, McKinnon needs to make it clear that the backfield combination should be a 50-50 split or better in his direction. Last season, it took longer than it should have for interim (and now full-time) offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to use McKinnon as part of the passing game. In the final six weeks, he caught 31 of his total 43 receptions. And on third downs, he was merely a check down for Sam Bradford, gaining just 3.8 Yards Per Reception.

This time around, Shurmur gets to implement a playbook that’s entirely his. And the Vikings’ offensive line should be improved in 2017<a href="http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-joshua-garnett-jersey-c-1_31.html">http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-joshua-garnett-jersey-c-1_31.html</a>  by adding tackles Mike Remmers and Riley Reiff, who are better run than pass blockers.

Circumstances should be better. The rest is up to McKinnon to prove the 2014 and 2015 versions were closer to reality than 2016.

前田纳西州WR Cordarrelle Patterson <a href="http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-jaquiski-tartt-jersey-c-1_25.html"> http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop -by-players-jaquiski-tartt-jersey-c-1_25.html </a>正试图让自己成为奥克兰新粉丝团。闪电般的回归者似乎是一个好的开始。

被广泛认为是联盟中最危险的回归者之一的帕特森(Patterson)希望在奥克兰这个新的开始之后,维京人在这方面的胜利绝对令人失望。

他在2013年和2016年在明尼苏达州赢得了两次Pro Bowl的出场和两项全职荣誉,但是在他四年的职业生涯中,他已经获得了1,316码。

Patterson获得了所有SEC荣誉的<a href="http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-shaquil-barrett-jersey-c-1_37.html"> http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com /shop-by-players-shaquil-barrett-jersey-c-1_37.html </a>在2012年,他与领导联盟的三月份的入侵者签署了两年$ 850万的自由球员协议2016年开球平均回程(31.7码)。

And the lightning-quick return man appears to be off to a good start.

The former first-round pick, who joined the Oakland Raiders this offseason after four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, recently served as the emcee for the Raiders 2017 UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Prom. And from <a href="http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-jason-verrett-jersey-c-1_25.html">Jason Verrett Youth Jersey</a> the looks of it, a good time was had by all.

The Raiders posted a highlight video of the event, which featured Patterson mingling with the attendees, escorting them in on the red carpet and overall just having a great time. Check it out:

Patterson, who widely is considered one of the most dangerous return men in the league, is hoping this fresh start in Oakland will produce better results as a wide receiver after a mostly disappointing tenure with the Vikings in that regard.

He earned two Pro Bowl appearances and two All-Pro honors in 2013 and 2016 for Minnesota, but has 1,316 yards receiving through his four-year career.

Patterson earned All-SEC honors for<a href="http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-shaquil-barrett-jersey-c-1_37.html">http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-shaquil-barrett-jersey-c-1_37.html</a>  the Vols in 2012. He signed a two-year, $8.5 million free-agent deal with the Raiders in March after leading the league in kickoff-return average (31.7 yards) in 2016.
