Discarded North Melbourne forward Drew Petrie is adamant hes got plenty more to give on the AFL stage, saying he hasnt arrived at West Coast to be a reserves player. Uomo Air Max 97 UL17 HAL Nere/Nocciola Scuro-Oliva Medio-Pomice Chiaro AH9945-001 .Petrie played 316 games and booted 428 goals for the Kangaroos before being axed as part of the clubs controversial cull at the end of last season.The Eagles handed the 34-year-old a lifeline via Mondays rookie draft, with Petries arrival bolstering West Coasts ruck stocks while Nic Naitanui recovers from a knee reconstruction.Former Cats ruckman Nathan Vardy was also added to West Coasts list, joining Scott Lycett and Jonathan Giles as ruck options.Petries form dropped off noticeably last season, with the 197cm forward managing just 27 goals in 23 games.It raised concerns about what he can produce at West Coast.But the 2011 All-Australian believes he can regain his best playing a split forward/ruck role.If it was purely just going to be a forward position over here, I doubt I would have come, Petrie said.But the ruck is an element and something that I think will help me become a good player this year.Im a proud person and a competitive person. My aim is to play a lot of senior games here, but Ive got to compete for that spot.Last year I played every game and trained every session, so my body is still very resilient.West Coast produced the shock of the trade period when they snared Hawthorn champion Sam Mitchell.Mitchell and Petrie are both 34 years old.But Petrie hopes the AFL landscape is slowly starting to treasure older players again.Certainly five years ago, as soon as you got to 28, you started on one-year contracts, Petrie said.And 30 was a horrible number in football.Ive just turned 34, and still got the fire, the want, the desire, and still believe Ive got the ability to play.Brent Harvey, Nick Dal Santo, and Michael Firrito were other veterans axed by the Kangaroos last season.Petrie said he understood the decision, but expressed surprise that Harvey was part of the cull.He said his own axing affected him deeply in his last two games for the Kangaroos, where he tallied a combined 10 possessions and no goals.West Coast will feel like a home away from home for Petrie given the clubs distinct North Melbourne flavour.Coach Adam Simpson and his assistant Brady Rawlings were champion players at the Kangaroos, while defence coach Daniel Pratt also played for North Melbourne.Petrie said Simpson and Rawlings played crucial roles in convincing him to join West Coast.I know they wouldnt throw me under the bus, he said. Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Uomo .

The England striker scored both goals in Leicesters 2-0 victory over Liverpool on Monday and former Foxes and West Ham striker Cottee fully appreciated the skill involved in his opener.The former Fleetwood Town star beat Reds keeper Simon Mignolet with a stunning 25-yard volley following a sensational pass from Riyad Mahrez before adding another in the second half to ensure his side remained three points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

CLEVELAND -- After combining to score one run in 10 innings in the first game of the series Monday night, the Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins are both hoping for better results on Tuesday. Orlando Brown Jr. Stitched Jersey .It took 10 innings for the Indians to score the only run of the game in a victory that extended the Twins losing streak to 11 games. Thats the longest losing streak by the Twins since they lost 11 in a row in September of 2011.The Twins had given up eight or more runs in six games in a row, a streak that was halted Monday when they held the Indians to one run. But a loss is a loss, and the losses are mounting at an alarming rate for the Twins, who havent won a game since a 10-3 victory over Kansas City on Aug. 17.When youre trying to find a way out of something like this, you need to make your breaks or have things go your way, Twins manager Paul Molitor said. But thats baseball. You never know from day to day if youre going to be in a pitchers duel or a slugging contest.The Indians, meanwhile, continue to sputter offensively. Although they won Mondays game, they have been held to one or zero runs in seven of their last eight games.Were not putting up enough runs, but weve got to weather through this, Cleveland skipper Terry Francona said.Jason Kipnis drove in the lone run Monday with a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the 10th.As an offense, we know we have to do better than what were doing, Jason Kipnis said. But if weve got to win 1-0, then lets win 1-0.Josh Tomlin (11-8, 4.70) will start for Cleveland on Tuesday. Tomlins status in the rotation could be riding on his performance Tuesday. In his last five starts, Tomlin is 0-5 with a 10.80 ERA and nine home runs allowed in 25 innings.Tomlin leads the majors in home runs allowed with 34, and seems certain to break the Indians franchise record for most homers allowed in a season. The record of 37 was set by Luis Tiant in 1969.The schedule hasnt done Tomlin any favors, however. His last four starts have been against the Washington Nationals, Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers, all teams that are likely headed for postseason appearances.In 13 career appearances against the Twins, Tomlin is 4-4 with a 5.26 ERA. In three starts versus the Twins this year, Tomlin is 2-0 with a 3.72 ERA.Joe Mauer is 7-for-20 (.350) with three RBI and two walks lifetime against Tomlin, while Brian Dozier is 5-for-23 (.217) against him.Twins starter Andrew Albers (0-0, 4.32) will be making his third appearance, but first start for the Twins this season. In 21 starts at Triple-A Rochester, he was 10-6 with a 3.69 ERA.Kipnis is 2-for-7 with a double against Albers.Albers does have one memorable appearance against Cleveland. On Aug. 12, 2013, he tossed a two-hit shutout in his second major league start, a 3-0 win over Cleveland at Target Field. Zach Sieler Stitched Jersey .

Brown was a second-round selection by the Lakers in 2015, appeared in 29 games and started 11 in the NBA last season, and will head to Pennsylvania on Monday for training camp and what he called a fresh start.The biggest thing that I took away from my time with Kobe was just the preparation that he came with to every game, Brown said. Every game that he played, his preparation was so detailed and so focused. The game is just the result of everything youve already worked on.Brown was the last player cut by the Lakers out of training camp this fall. He was one of two first-round selections Sunday with past NBA experience, joining Travis Leslie -- who appeared in 10 games with the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2011-12 season. Leslie was picked No. 4 overall by the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Indianas D-League club.Youre playing NBA rules with an NBA ball, Brown said.

Ultimately, unforced errors were Mullers undoing, with both sets easily in reach.Gilles Muller is a very difficult player to play against in quick conditions, Djokovic said. He takes away the time of the opponent. He serves and volleys second serve a lot, as well, which hes one of the rare guys that does that. He likes to play quick, and I think the warm day like today played a lot in his favor.Djokovic will face qualifier Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic in the third round.Third-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan downed American Dennis Novikov 6-4, 7-5; and fourth-seeded Milos Raonic of Canada beat Taiwans Yen-Hsun Lu 6-3, 6-3.American qualifier Ryan Harrison outlasted ninth-seeded countryman John Isner 7-6 (3), 6-7 (4), 6-4, and 10th-seeded Gael Monfils of France topped Canadas Vasek Pospisil, Canada, 7-6 (6), 6-0.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Ecco Ennio Herre . -- During coach Darrell Hazells first three seasons at Purdue, defense certainly hasnt been the Boilermakers forte, explaining in large part why this program entered Saturdays opener 6-30 beginning with 2013.Seven of last years 12 opponents scored at least 41 points in a 2-10 season, but defense provided all the momentum Purdue needed against Eastern Kentucky in Ross-Ade Stadium.Leroy Clark and Gelen Robinsons first-quarter interceptions helped Purdue build an early 21-0 lead, and the Boilermakers outlasted the Football Championship Subdivision Colonels 45-24 in the season opener for both teams.Clarks interception of Maty Mauk, the fifth-year graduate transfer quarterback from Missouri, set up Purdues second touchdown and a 14-0 lead, and Robinsons 78-yard interception return for a score pushed the Boilermakers advantage to 21-0 with 3:31 remaining in the first quarter.Markell Jones scored on a 3-yard run to cap an efficient opening drive for Purdue.Obviously, we like to win the turnover battle, and that was a huge part of our preparation, as it is for every team, said Robinson, the son of former Purdue All-American basketball standout and NBA player Glenn Robinson.For me, it was great to do my part to help the defense win that battle. On my interception, as soon as I saw the quarterback flare out, I knew my job. I had help scoring when (cornerback) Myles Norwood blocked the quarterback.Eastern Kentucky turned the ball over four times. The Boilermakers were guilty of one.While Eastern Kentucky out gained the Boilermakers 284-243 during the first 30 minutes, Purdue built a led 28-18 at halftime, thanks to the 14 points as a result of interceptions.Any time you can play out front like we did, it takes a little bit of stress off you, coach Hazell said, So it was good for us to get those turnovers and convert those turnovers into points. Then I thought our guys responded well in the second half by playing great defense and penetrating well.First-year Eastern Kentucky coach Mark Elder said the first-quarter turnovers provided this games storyline.You are not going to have a chance to win many games with three turnovers in the first quarter, Elder said, We have to do a better job of protecting the ball. Our guys fought and played hard all game, but we got down by too much too early.Boilermaker redshirt sophomore quarterback David Blough ran for two touchdowns and threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver DeAngelo Yancey, giving Purdue a 28-8 lead late in the second quarter.I thought we moved the ball really well, said Blough, who was 1-7 as a starter in 2015. We sustained some drives and picked up some crucial third downs, but theres so many little things that we can do to make it that much better. We didnt score on one drive when we got inside their 10.Jones carried 24 times for 143 yards for a Purdue team that now has won 13 consecutive home openers, including 4-0 for fourth-year coach Hazell, now 7-30 with the Boilermakers. Hazell is 4-0 against FCS opponents.You have to know that those 143 rushing yards all start up front, Jones said. Those guys did a good job of imposing their will, which made it pretty easy for me to find holes and seams and hit them.Each team struggled to generate any third-quarter offense, especially after Colonels quarterback Bennie Coney, who replaced Mauk in the first quarter, took a hard hit while scrambling and was helped to the sideline, prompting Mauks return.Purdue finally broke the second-half scoring drought on Bloughs second TD run, a 1-yard plunge with 12:48 remaining in the game to extend the lead to 35-18.J.D. Dellingers 30-yard field goal with 4:56 to play capped a 13-play, 66-yard drive and gave the Boilermakers a 38-18 lead.Blough finished 25 of 43 for 245 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Domonique Young caught eight passes for 74 yards.Purdue capped its scoring with a 48-yard touchdown run from freshman Brian Lankford-Johnson with 4:23 left. The Colonels got a TD with 1:34 remaining to complete the scoring.TAKEAWAYPurdue: While the Boilermakers pulled away during the final 12:48, they led their FCS opponent by just 10 points heading into the final quarter in front of only 32,074 fans on a gorgeous September afternoon. Purdue finished with 512 yards of offense and snapped a four-game losing streak to end the 2015 season. The 32,074 was the smallest home crowd for a Purdue home opener since 25,000 watched the Boilermakers defeat Missouri 31-0 on Sept. 25, 1954, almost 62 years ago.Eastern Kentucky: If Coney is able to play next week after taking a hard hit in the second half, the Colonels coaching staff will have a difficult decision to make at quarterback. Mauk struggled at Purdue, but he was 17-5 as a starter at Missouri. It was clear Saturday that the Eastern Kentucky offense had a better rhythm with Coney under center.Our plan from the get-go was that we were going to put Mauk in for the first two series and Coney was going to play series three and four and we were going to go from there, Elder said. Bennie had a hot hand, so we kept him in there. For the second half, we had the same plan.KEY NUMBERSPurdue: The Boilermakers key to limiting Eastern Kentucky to six second-half points centered on third-down conversions. The Colonels were 10 of 14 in the first half when they scored 18 points and 0 for 6 in the final 30 minutes when they scored six.Eastern Kentucky: Coney finished 13 of 23 for 158 yards and a touchdown, while Mauk was only 2 of 7 for 18 yards with two picks. Mauk did rush eight times for 39 yards.INJURY REPORTPurdue was without starting cornerback DaWan Hunte (sprained ankle) and defensive end Austin Larkin (sprained ankle). Each starter, according to Hazell, should be ready for the Sept. 10 game against Cincinnati.THE LAST WORDWe did not come here to play close, and we certainly did not come here to lose by 21. We came here to win the game. --- Eastern Kentucky coach Mark Elder.UP NEXTPurdue: The Boilermakers are home again on Sept. 10, hosting Cincinnati at noon. The Bearcats defeated Purdue in September of 2013 in Hazells first game with the Boilermakers, 42-7 in Cincinnati. The Bearcats opened the season Thursday night with a 28-7 victory against Tennessee-Martin.Eastern Kentucky: The Colonels will attempt to give coach Mark Elder his first victory at EKU on Thursday when they play Pikeville. ECCO Herre Yucatan Sandaler 069564-52340 BISON Sort/Sort Tilbud DK .

Now, Avalanche fans are hoping theyre reunited again to steer the foundering franchise back to the glory days. According to reports, the Hall of Fame goaltender could possibly be in line to become the next coach. Roys younger brother, Stephane Roy, posted a Facebook note late Monday night saying his brother would be the new coach. Stephane Roy later told The Denver Post: "Theyre discussing the final details of an arrangement." The organization remains silent on the report, saying in an email to The Associated Press on Tuesday that the Avs, "wont comment on any speculation on this issue." Fans in the Mile High City are enthralled by the thought of two of the most beloved players in team history joining forces again to lead team. The Avalanche fired Joe Sacco on April 28 after a season in which the squad finished last in the Western Conference and missed the playoffs for a third straight season. Soon after, the team shook up the front office, with Josh Kroenke taking over the reigns as team president from Pierre Lacroix, the architect behind the Cup-winning teams in 1996 and 2001. Kroenkes first order of business was promoting Sakic from a largely ceremonial role with the franchise to executive vice-president of hockey operations, giving the Hall of Famer a say in just about everything, including the new coach. Sakic may just turn to a familiar face in Roy, who retired in 2003 aas the all-time winningest goalie with 551 victories, a mark that has since been surpassed by Martin Brodeur of New Jersey. Ecco Støvler Tilbud. Roy began his career with Montreal, winning two Stanley Cup trophies for the Canadiens. But things began to sour in a game against Detroit on Dec. 2, 1995, when Roy allowed nine goals before he was finally taken out in the second period. Roy was so irate he told Montreal it was his last game for the team. Four days later, he was dealt to Colorado. A few months later, Roy helped the Avs capture their first Stanley Cup. He spent parts of eight seasons with Colorado and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2006. His familiar No. 33 sweater was retired by the Avs a decade ago and a banner to commemorate the achievement now hangs from the Pepsi Center rafters, alongside those of Sakic (19), Peter Forsberg (21) and Ray Bourque (77). Sakic recently said he wants his new leader to offer a teaching component, especially since the Avs have a young nucleus in place with Matt Duchene, Ryan OReilly and captain Gabriel Landeskog all under 23. They also have the No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft. "You want to have some patience, because your best players are young," Sakic said. A fierce competitor on the ice, Roy could bring that same type of demeanour to the bench, even if he doesnt have NHL coaching experience. Since his retirement, Roy has been keeping busy by helping out the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Hes served as the teams co-owner, general manager and coach. White NFL Jerseys Cheap Disocunt Football Jerseys Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL T-shirts ' ' '
Underperforming batsmen and an untimely calf flare-up to Steve OKeefe have complicated matters further for Australias interim selection panel on the eve of an especially tense squad announcement for the Adelaide Test. lebron james white jersey .The acting chairman of selectors, Trevor Hohns, is expected to name a 13-man squad for the day/night match on Sunday afternoon, underlining the uncertainty surrounding Australian cricket on the back of five consecutive defeats, and two in a row at home for the first time since the fateful Ashes summer of 2010-11.While the youthful trio of Peter Handscomb, Matt Renshaw and Travis Dean all put their names in lights with centuries, Joe Burns and Callum Ferguson completed double failures in the Sheffield Shield match between Queensland and South Australia at the Gabba to slip further towards the precipice.Of equal concern for the panel is the fact that OKeefe is believed to have suffered a flaring of an ongoing calf problem on day three of the New South Wales v Victoria encounter at the SCG. He had been favoured to return to the Test XI in place of the incumbent Nathan Lyon, who has struck a horrid wicket drought at the worst possible time.OKeefes injury prognosis may also have a knock-on effect for the wicketkeepers Peter Nevill and Matthew Wade. While the Australians are eager for the lower-order heft that Wade could provide, his inferior glovework, particularly to Lyon, may yet play in Nevills favour. A third spin option, Jon Holland, has bowled well for Victoria at the SCG.Another name, not seen in lights for some time, is that of Sam Whiteman, the Western Australia wicketkeeper.

Patterson and Handscomb would likely slot into the places vacated by Ferguson and the concussed Adam Voges.Renshaw and Dean, two players not considered particularly fashionable in terms of physique or method, both place a high premium on batting time, a quality badly missing in Australias recent defeats. Another possible choice, though less likely, is Victorias Marcus Harris, who moved from Western Australia at the start of the season to good effect - only Handscomb is ahead of him on the national aggregates.Among the pace bowlers to support Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, the South Australia pair of Chadd Sayers and Daniel Worrall are in the selectors thoughts, as is Jackson Bird. Like his fellow Redback Ferguson, Joe Mennie may yet find himself on the outer after only one Test - a further measure of how much things have changed in the course of a single fractious week.Possible squad Steven Smith (capt), Matt Renshaw, David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Kurtis Patterson, Peter Handscomb, Matthew Wade (wk), Steve OKeefe, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Jackson Bird, Daniel Worrall/Chadd Sayers. lebron james authentic jersey.

Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. Last week, I put together progress reports for two of the three starting quarterbacks from the Class of 2014, Jacksonvilles Blake Bortles and Minnesotas Teddy Bridgewater. The third quarterback in that group might be the source of the most debate. Like Bortles and Bridgewater, Oaklands Derek Carr is working his way through the franchise quarterback churn. Carr is a quarterback of extremes at this point in his career -- he can look like a superstar and pass-rush fodder. As the Raiders continue to show signs of coming out of their decade-long shell, it remains to be seen whether Carr will be leading them or struggling to keep up.You cant compare Carr to Bortles and Bridgewater without looking first at the men blocking for them. Bortles and Bridgewaters offensive lines have been messes. Carrs line was one of the better units in football last year, and its only going to get better after GM Reggie McKenzie signed star Ravens guard Kelechi Osemele in free agency. Osemele is going to start at left guard and replace the lines weakest player, departed lineman JMarcus Webb, with Gabe Jackson moving to the right side. Thats an enormous upgrade.Carrs offensive line allowed him to do things that were relative luxuries for Bortles and Bridgewater, like breathe in the pocket without fearing for his life. Carr was pressured on only 21.6 percent of his dropbacks, the fifth-lowest rate among starting quarterbacks. A quarterback who gets the ball out quickly can distort that number (see:?Tom Brady), but other metrics suggest that wasnt the case with Carr. He took 2.44 seconds before his typical pass, 15th in the league. Carrs average throw traveled 7.67 yards in the air, which was slightly below league average and one full yard deeper than the typical Bridgewater pass (6.66).The former Fresno State star helped his own cause too: When Carr recognized that a blitz was coming, he often checked to a fade route to receivers Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree?and Andre Holmes, knowing that he was going to have a one-on-one matchup with a big wideout against an often undersized cornerback. Those passes worked well and were often delivered in stride: Carrs QBR on non-screens against the blitz was 72.2, eighth best in the league.You can see his prowess on a 5-yard touchdown pass to Andre Holmes against the Jets in Week 8. The Jets attempt to bring pressure with two linebackers, and while they do a great job of disguising their blitz until just before the snap, Carr can see it coming. He lobs up a fade to Holmes in a perfect spot and gets it up so quickly that corner Buster Skrine never even turns around to find the ball. Its pitch-and-catch.Carrs effort against the Jets shows why its so difficult to evaluate him. This was his finest performance of the year according to QBR. Carrs 93.6 figure dwarfed the competition. No other passer posted a single-game QBR against the Jets in the 80s, let alone the 90s. (QBR, remember, isnt adjusted for the strength of opposition.) Carr finished the day with 333 passing yards and four touchdowns against the leagues ninth-best pass defense.And yet, as I noted in watching the game back in November, the Raiders offensive line dominated the Jets up front. It was one of the single-best performances I saw from an offensive line all year. The Jets pressured Carr on 13.9 percent of his dropbacks when New Yorks yearly average was 29 percent. Thats how Carr ended up with enough time and space to make a perfect throw in stride to Holmes for a 45-yard touchdown. It helped when the Jets didnt get home and didnt bother to tackle Crabtree on the end of a 36-yard touchdown, and pulled a Keystone Cops routine in letting Taiwan Jones turn a swing pass into a 59-yard touchdown.Carr picked on Antonio Cromartie in that game, and at his best, he was exploiting the others team weakest links in lieu of forcing the ball to Cooper. In his second-best game of the year, against the Chargers the previous week, he abused Chargers safety Jimmy Wilson, who was filling in for Eric Weddle and was one of the worst regulars in the league before being cut in December. He lobbed a beautiful wheel route to Clive Walford over Wilson for one score and deliberately threw a bomb into double coverage,?trusting that Cooper would outjump Wilson, which he did. As with the Jets, the Chargers helped, whiffing on tackles on a tunnel screen to Cooper for a 49-yard score, with Cooper breaking Wilsons ankles. In the second half, the Raiders ran a tunnel screen to Crabtree for another score, with Jahleel Addae missing the tackle this time.This feels like an offense that plays to Carrs strengths. With Carr spending his time at Fresno State as a spread quarterback, offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave put his QB in the shotgun on 68.1 percent of Oaklands offensive snaps, the ninth-highest rate in the league. Carrs QBR in the shotgun was 23rd in the league and 30th when he was under center. The Raiders throw early and often to try to stay out of negative situations. On first-and-10 in 14-point games, the Raiders threw 62.5 percent of the time, which was the highest pass percentage in the NFL. Carr doesnt throw deep all that often -- he was 23rd in the percentage of throws traveling 20 or more yards in the air -- but its where he was at his best:Carr looked like the best deep passer of the three based on 2015 alone. Bortles threw deep more frequently, but as I mentioned in my piece on the Jacksonville starter, many of his deeper throws were jump balls for Allen Robinson, who did most of the work in turning them into receptions. While Carr did have throws like that -- the lob over Wilson to Cooper I mentioned above is an obvious example -- there were many more times I noted touch and deftness on Carrs passes downfield.Its another Oakland credo to go after enormous receivers. Carrs average pass went to a receiver who was 74.3 inches tall (a little over 6-foot-2), giving him the fourth-largest receiving corps in football. (Jacksonvilles grouping was third.) Sadly, they werent always his friends. Oaklands pass-catchers, which will return virtually unchanged in 2016, dropped 5.1 percent of Carrs throws last year. That was the fifth-worst rate in the league. Its hard to see these receivers combining to drop as many passes in 2016, particularly Cooper, who should be healthier after struggling through plantar fasciitis a year ago. While analyses suggesting Cooper dropped 18 passes seem off the mark, ESPN Stats & Information has Cooper down for 10 drops on 126 targets, the second-highest total in the league behind Tampas Mike Evans.The one perhaps concerning quirk surrounding Carrs 2015 season is what happened as it went along: Namely, Carr got worse. A lot worse. His QBR during Weeks 1-9, covering Oaklands first eight games, was 11th in the league at 66.6. During Oaklands final eight games, Carrs QBR dropped to just 35.1, leaving him 28th out of 29 passers. Only Bortles, coincidentally, was worse. Carrs decline came under duress. He had the leagues lowest pressure rate during the first half of the year, at 17.6 percent. Over the final eight weeks, that pressure rate leaped up to 25.0 percent. That was only eighth in the league, buut it was enough to help throw Carr off track. Cheap Wholesale Jordan Shoes From China. Carrs worst performances, ironically, came in two of the three games the Raiders won in the second half of the season. He was dismal against the Broncos in a 15-12 victory driven by Khalil Macks five sacks, although Carr did throw a perfect touchdown pass on what is admittedly my favorite play, the fake screen and go. (Musgrave set up the touchdown by calling the same screen twice earlier in the game.) The Broncos got enough pressure on Carr to hold the second-year passer to an 11.4 QBR.Two weeks later, against the Chargers, Carr could muster only a 22.2 QBR in a game that included the Raiders trying to lateral their way into a touchdown at the end of the first half before Chargers wideout Dontrelle Inman was forced by injuries into duty as a safety in overtime. His day against San Diego started with an example of how the Raiders trust Carr to do a lot and how hes still a player learning on the fly. Carr made the wrong read on a run-pass option (RPO), declining to hand the ball to his running back on a power play and instead trying to force a stick route up the seam, which was tipped at the line and intercepted. Musgrave entrusted Carr with the keys to the car on RPOs in 2016, and this was a case where it felt like it was too much, too soon. That will happen with young quarterbacks.As Chase Stuart notes to me often, splits happen, and there might not be a rhyme or reason to why Carr declined in the second half. As a good example, consider what Carr did in the red zone as a rookie in 2014. During a relatively unimpressive season, Carr posted the leagues best QBR (94.0) in the red zone, throwing 18 touchdowns against one pick as the Raiders averaged a league-best 5.69 points per red zone trip. In 2015, with the Raiders improving on offense, they fell back to 10th in points per red zone trip and Carrs QBR inside the opposing 20 was 19th in the league at 68.3. I wrote last month that red zone performance tends to be random from year to year, and Carrs two seasons embody that finding.At the same time, though, it seems logical that you would want your second-year passer to improve -- not decline -- as the year progresses. A passer getting better as the year continues is a passer figuring things out for good, eliminating mistakes and replacing them with the knowledge gained from NFL experience. Anecdotally, that makes all kinds of sense. We can see if it checks out in reality, though.To test that idea out, I took every second-year passer since 1990 who threw 150 passes in each of the two halves of their season and compared how they performed in each half. Since we dont have QBR going back that far, I used adjusted yards per attempt (AY/A), which is a better all-in-one metric than passer rating. By AY/A, the difference between Carrs first half (8.40 AY/A) and second half (5.83 AY/A) was 2.57 adjusted yards per attempt. Of 56 quarterbacks, that 2.57-yard per attempt decline places Carr ... 56th in terms of half-to-half decline. Bortles, notably, is 12th among AY/A improvers despite finishing last in second-half QBR; in other words, while his numbers improved during the second half of the season, QBR suggests he was actually playing worse during the final eight games.The group of 10 quarterbacks who improved the most from half to half during their second season include a Hall of Famer in Troy Aikman and an MVP in Cam Newton, alongside Jake Plummer, Vince Young, Timm Rosenbach, Josh Freeman, JaMarcus Russell, Tony Banks, Tyler Thigpen and Joey Harrington. During their second year, their combined AY/A mark in the first half was 5.11, improving all the way to 6.75 AY/A in the second half. Then, in their third season, those 10 passers combined to throw more interceptions (116) than touchdowns (91) and posted a AY/A figure of 5.28. They gave away basically all of their collective gains.Meanwhile, the group of 10 passers (leaving out Carr because he hasnt played his third season) who declined the most during the second half of their second season includes Derek Anderson, Marc Bulger, Brian Griese, Eli Manning, Trent Edwards, Browning Nagle, Trent Dilfer, Shaun King, Andrew Luck?and Musgraves former charge in Minnesota, Christian Ponder. They were great in the first half of their second season (6.86 AY/A) and dismal in the second half (5.10 AY/A). You can probably see where this is going. In their collective third year, these 10 passers averaged 6.48 adjusted yards per attempt, far closer to what the first halves of their second seasons said.This is too small of a sample to really say anything definitive about how quarterbacks develop, but at the very least, theres not any evidence saying that its important for a passer to get better as their second year goes along, or that a decline portends ominous things about his future. Carr might succeed, or he might fail, but we dont know any more about whether that will happen based on the timing of when he played well in 2015.There is something that will have to improve, though, fluke or otherwise: Late in games, for whatever reason, Carr was a mess. He posted a 19.9 QBR in the fourth quarter and overtime, which was the second-worst mark in the league ahead of Nick Foles. Bortles, one spot ahead of Carr, finished at 31.2. Seven of Carrs 13 picks came in the fourth quarter and OT, despite the fact that he threw only 31 percent of his passes during that time frame. Only Matthew Stafford had a higher interception rate in the fourth quarter/OT (6.8 percent) than Carr (5.3 percent).Some will say that Carr and the Raiders need to learn how to win, as if thats a lesson you unlock once and never need to understand again. It always has been a silly, meaningless concept. Chances are that Carrs late-game struggles are a fluke, especially given that his fourth-quarter/OT QBR as a rookie was 17th in the league, roughly NFL average. With only two years of information to lean on for Carr -- or any of these passers -- were often overreacting to small splits both good and bad for analysis.In 2016, its less important that Carr get better in the fourth quarter/OT or during the second half of the season, if only because that will happen by sheer chance. Its more important that he gets better on the whole. After adding an incredible run-blocker in Osemele, the Raiders probably will try to run the ball more on first down, taking some of the workload off of Carr. In return, hell need to be more effective on the short-to-intermediate throws that make up the bulk of Musgraves playbook, which will require help from Cooper, who will require help from the injury gods.As you think about Carr and Bortles and Bridgewater and try to analyze them, the reality repeatedly sets in that so much depends upon the players and coaches around them. Even with Adrian Peterson in Minnesota and Allen Robinson in Jacksonville, most people would choose Carrs supporting cast before Bortles or Bridgewaters. And that alone might be the best case for thinking hell be the best quarterback of the three in 2016. White NFL Jerseys Cheap Disocunt Football Jerseys Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL T-shirts ' ' '
EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Charles Barkley Jersey .J. -- The New York Giants arent getting too excited after opening the season with a win for the first time since 2010.Its one game and all they did was beat a Dallas Cowboys team that was playing with a rookie at quarterback.Winning the second one might say a lot more about Ben McAdoos team. The Giants face the New Orleans Saints (0-1) in their home opener on Sunday, and that means finding a way to stop Drew Brees.The Giants were shredded by the Saints veteran quarterback last season in a 52-49 loss. Brees completed 40 of 50 passes for 511 yards and seven touchdowns. The yardage total was the most against New York and the TD total tied the highest in an NFL game.Drew Brees, its crazy how he is getting better every year, said Giants linebacker Jonathan Casillas, who played with Brees on the Saints.He is still throwing for 5,000 yards like he is a young kid out there. He looks like he is having fun, like he always has been doing. Its going to be interesting this week.The Giants revamped defense did enough to beat Dak Prescott in his first start. While it gave up yards and allowed Dallas to keep the ball for long periods of time, the Cowboys only scored one touchdown and settled for four field goals in New Yorks 20-19 win.Casillas said the Giants did nothing right in the loss to the Saints in New Orleans last season.We werent good at all in any phase or in any part of the game, he said. We didnt tackle that great, we blew coverages, we let people run free. You want me to keep going?It just wasnt a good showing. It was one of those games you look back and you just dont watch the film because you are disgusted by it.The positive for the Giants is that Brees is going to be seeing a much different defense.New York signed defensive end Olivier Vernon, tackle Damon Harrison, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and middle linebacker Kelvin Sheppard as free agents and drafted cornerback Eli Apple and safety Darian Thompson in the first and third rounds, respectively.The Saints offense also will be seeing Jason Pierre-Paul this season. He missed the first eight games of last season after injuring his right hand in a fireworks accident. The last game he missed was the Saints game.The new unit did an outstanding job of limiting the Dallas running game, but it did not get much pressure on Prescott.Casillas, who led the Giants with 10 tackles, felt the defense was resilient last week and it never felt it was going to lose the game.We are in no place to be content, Casillas said. What happened at the end of the day, we beat a rookie quarterback in his first game. That should happen more times than not.Brees will grind up the Giants again if they are not in the right spots, Casillas said.Drews intangibles are immeasurable, Casillas said. He is unbelievable. He is not that tall, but he gets the ball down the field and gets the ball to the guys he needs to.He doesnt play small. He plays big, like a big tough guy all the time. He is always bound to make that perfect pass, that perfect play. He is such a cerebral player. He has full control over his offense. No one operates like him.Eli Manning had a pretty good game in the loss, throwing for 350 yards and six touchdowns.It was a wild game, Manning said. Its fun to play in those games. You feel offensively you can score most times you get it and you feel you have to score most times you get it. Its fun scoring touchdowns and having a lot of excitement but obviously you would like to get the W, it would mean a little more.Game notes Backup G-C Brett Jones lined up in a fullback position for a couple of plays on Sunday. The Canadian had never done that before. He laughed when asked about carrying the ball. As an offensive lineman you always want to carry the ball. Definitely, it would be cool. ...

Ichiro Suzuki was 27 years old by the time he made his Major League Baseball debut in 2001, winning American League MVP?and Rookie of the Year in the same season. But the impact he made in 16 years is more than most players do in careers much longer: He led the league in hits in seven different seasons. He is a 10-time Gold Glove winner and 10-time All-Star. He played in every game of the season four times, and all but one in four others.Now, thanks to a triple against the Rockies on Sunday, hes a member of one of baseballs most esteemed clubs and an almost-assured first-ballot Hall of Famer -- here are a few reasons why.Not one, not two, not three...When Ichiro gets hits in games, they often come in bunches. Since he came over from Japan in 2001, no player has more multihit games than Suzukis 892 -- in fact, 36 percent of his games have resulted in multiple hits. The other players on the list are no slouches, but Suzukis total tops second-best Albert Pujols number by nearly 100 games.Make his a singleWith a career .405 slugging percentage, Suzuki will never be considered a power hitter. But he is a base hit machine -- more than 80 percent of his hits are one-baggers.An oldie but a ggoodieSuzukis batting average this year -- . Demetrius Jackson Jersey. 318 at the start of this weekends series -- is among the best ever recorded in the modern era by a player 42 years old or older. Its also his best season-average since 2009.*Minimum 200 at-bats.Better with ageWhen it comes to hits after the age of 27, Suzuki is second only to Pete Rose. And if Suzuki plays another three seasons, as Rose did, he has a chance to surpass that number, too. (Rose recorded 387 hits in his age-42 through 45 seasons.)Away field advantagesSuzuki has played in 41 stadiums and faced 1,262 pitchers in his 16-year career, but there are a few places -- and people -- he particularly enjoyed revisiting. No surprise, his 1,238 hits at Safeco Field lead the category, but when it comes to hitting on the road, Suzuki had a few favorite spots...Favorite foesWhen it comes to pitchers, some of Suzukis favorites are familiar foes, and others are spread out over his 16 years -- but for all five of them, in at least 30 at-bats against each, Suzuki is hitting .400 or better.*Minimum 30 at-bats. White NFL Jerseys Cheap Disocunt Football Jerseys Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL T-shirts ' ' '
