The Washington Redskins Jerseys torched the New Orleans Saints last week, racking up 510 total yards of offense.

It was the last game for defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who was fired this week.

“They made my bye week turn into a bye-by week,” Ryan said Sunday on NFL Network’s GameDay Morning.

Ryan praised the Redskins’ offensive line. Despite having faced the likes of Carolina, Arizona and Dallas this season, Ryan believes the Redskins were the most physical team the johnny manziel jersey sales Saints defense battled.

“Really their offense starts with the offensive line,” Ryan said. “I think that was the most physical team we played against all year. I think every thing sets off their running game. They do an excellent job there.”

Ryan’s analysis must make general manager Scot McCloughan smile, as beefing up the offensive line was a priority this season — including adding first-round pick Brandon Scherff.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins Jerseys also drew praise from Ryan for his ability to manage the game, after the signal-caller put up 324 passing yards on his defense.

“Cousins did a nice job of managing the game and he had one big throw on us on third down and then everything else was dink-and-dunk. They did a good job doing that and I think that team is on the rise,” Ryan said.

Many teams this year had their best games against Ryan’s defense in New Orleans, which ranks last in the NFL in points per game and yards per game johnny manziel jersey sales allowed.

Cousins won’t have such an easy time Sunday against a stout Carolina Panthers Jerseys defense that boasts Luke Kuechly Jerseys and Josh Norman Jerseys.

The Oakland Raiders have been an NFL afterthought for so long, it’s hard to remember the last time we saw them play meaningful football in January.

You have to go all the way back to 2003, when Rich Gannon — the league’s MVP in the preceding season — led Oakland to Super Bowl XXXVIII. Anyone who speaks of the outcome of that game gets dungeon time at Davis, Inc.

What’s happened in the years since has been a slow-motion car crash for a proud franchise. The win totals in the 13 years since speaks to the wreckage: 4, 5, 4, 2, 4, 5, 5, 8, 8, 4, 4, 3, 7.

Last year’s jump made sense. Buttressed by a pair of strong draft classes, Oakland sent five players to the Pro Bowl in 2015. Derek Carr Jerseys was one of them, and the third-year quarterback johnny manziel jersey for sale remains the key to the Raiders’ hopes of finally regaining relevance in the AFC.

With Carr (No. 36 pick, 2014) leading the offense and Khalil Mack Jerseys (No. 5 pick, 2014) anchoring the defense, Oakland has become a buzzy playoff pick this season. For the first time in over a decade, there are legitimate — gulp — expectations for the Silver and Black.

“On paper it looks great. We don’t want to be paper champs,” Carr told CSN Bay Area at the start of Oakland’s offseason workout program. “We’ve got some good guys, but none of that matters unless we put the work in. Everything can look good in theory and in practice it all falls apart. As a leader of this team, I’m going to concentrate on pushing to get better every day.”

General manager Reggie McKenzie seized on last year’s momentum with several important signings in free agency. Kelechi Osemele Jerseys fortifies the offensive line, while the defense has gained impact starters in cornerback Sean Smith Jerseys, safety Reggie Nelson Jerseys and pass rusher Bruce Irvin.

With the Broncos in flux — a team with Mark Sanchez penciled in as its starter should always be regarded as such regardless of prior achievements — the hype around the Raiders actually feels justified.

“It’s a great thing that people are talking about us in that light. When I first got there, they certainly weren’t doing that,” Carr said. “It’s a credit to where we’ve come from, but that’s about it.”

“What we did last year on the field was better, but we want the same kind of jump again this year. We want to be better than 7-9. Honestly, 7-9 is not going to cut it. It felt good last year, I think we were close to winning 10 games. We have to continue to push ourselves to do better than that.”

The road to the Lombardi is littered with April darlings, but it’s easy to be optimistic in this case. This could finally be the year the Raiders return as power players in the AFC. Frankly, they’ve been missed.

Bowman: Kap situation not a distraction, right now

The San Francisco 49er Jerseyss have spent the offseason being ground in the rumor mill, with Colin Kaepernick Jerseys trade buzz this offseason’s topic de jour.

Earlier this week, after Colin Kaepernick Jerseys reported to Niners offseason workouts, NFL Media analysts LaDainian Tomlinson and Michael Robinson postulated that the quarterback being in the locker room after requesting a trade would eventually cause problems.

So far Kaepernick’s teammates haven’t seen it that way. So far.

When the season rolls around, I think it will be a distraction,” linebacker NaVorro Bowman Jerseys said Wednesday, via ESPN.com. “But right now, guys are just focused on what we have to do.

“I’m sure upstairs (the 49ers’ front office) and Colin are trying to get everything right.”

As we noted earlier this week, Kap’s teammates — and the quarterback himself, if he ever speaks publicly — are all likely to say the right things early in the offseason. There is no point in trashing a teammate currently in your own locker room.

Bowman, one of the leaders in that Niners’ locker room, sounds as though he’d like a quick resolution.

“But guys are out there on the field putting their work in,” Bowman said. “That’s the guys that we’re going to continue to work with and try to get better.”

Unfortunately, the situation doesn’t appear close to over, with the draft upcoming and Kaepernick’s injury situation still evolving. The Broncos are willing to play hardball to get Kap to take a pay cut. The quarterback — justifiably — doesn’t want to give money back. Yet, the trade request remains.

Running back Carlos Hyde Jerseys said right now teammates don’t treat the quarterback any different.

“We treat Kap the same way,” Hyde said. “He’s part of the team right now. He’s in there every day. He’s in the big room with us. We treat him like he’s our teammate, which he is, so we don’t treat him any differently.”

The key to both Bowman’s and Hyde’s comments is the “right now” modifier. In Phase 1 of offseason workouts, players can ignore the rumors and innuendo. As we press on through the summer, they will want to be certain a teammate — especially a quarterback — is all in, ready to battle with and for them, not with an eye on another destination.

Chiefs sign Pro Bowler Travis Kelce to 5-year extension



Johnny Manziel Jersey

What a time to be alive for Travis Kelce Jerseys.

johnny manziel browns jersey

One day after E! network confirmed the tight end will star in his own reality show, Catching Kelce, the Kansas City Chiefs announced a lucrative new contract for the first-time Pro Bowl selection.

Kelce’s new deal is worth $46 million over five years with $20.5 million in guarantees, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via sources involved in the negotiations. The new pact, which includes a $10-million signing bonus, will make Kelce the second-highest paid tight end in the NFL.

Due to enter the final year of his rookie contract, Kelce is now under Chiefs’ control through 2021.

The new deal comes in just ahead of the recently inked five-year, $42 million contract for Zach Ertz Jerseys, which makes sense. While neither is a bastion of blocking ability, Kelce has been Johnny Manziel Jersey the better, more consistent receiving threat over the past two years.

Although Kelce’s nickname is “Zeus,” he has also been labeled “Baby Gronk” due to physical gifts resembling those of Rob Gronkowski Jerseys.

Whereas the Patriots’ All-Pro is a better blocker, a more powerful player and a greater red-zone threat, Kelce has a slight edge in speed and elusiveness in the open field. In fact, Kelce is the only tight end to compile more yards after the catch than Gronkowski over the past two Johnny Manziel Jersey seasons.

After back-to-back seasons with at least 850 receiving yards, Kelce proved worthy of a long-term investment with 14 catches for 151 yards in two postseason games this month.

Because there is so little proven depth behind No. 1 receiver Jeremy Maclin Jerseys, Kelce is inordinately integral to Kansas City’s offense. With those two stars locked up as the lynchpins of Alex Smith Jerseys’s aerial attack, the Chiefs are in fine shape for the foreseeable future.
