Ten years ago, we would’ve done burgers, hot dogs, fries, Moore says. We took out the fryer. We don’t have that anymore. We’re all about introducing them to new foods and teaching them the best way possible to eat.
The Saints had built a 45-10 lead only to see it whittled down to seven in the fourth quarter. Payton was annoyed about the way his team struggled to finish. So when someone asked about what Peterson was doing in Arizona and whether it gave him pause about trading the old warhorse five days earlier, Payton wasn’t having any.
That’s a dumb question, Payton said. We’re trying to win games, and I’d love to have that player. But it’s hard to have that many and get into a rhythm. I thought Mark [Ingram] and Alvin [Kamara] had some big plays, and I would hope we would have had that type of rushing output if Adrian was a part of it.
It’s a tough time for the Redskins to suffer key injuries as their next five games are against Philadelphia, Dallas, Minnesota, New Orleans and Seattle.
The Redskins also dealt with injuries at safety during Sunday’s 26-24 win over San Francisco. Montae Nicholson left with a shoulder injury before returning, and Stefan McClure suffered a hyperextended left knee. Safety Deshazor Everett already was out with a hamstring injury; he’s expected to practice this week.
Ingram and Kamara combined for 189 yards on 35 carries in the Saints’ win on Sunday. And while they couldn’t salt away the game by running it late, they won it by running it early and often, which makes you realize the Saints were loaded at running back and just couldn’t come up with anything for Peterson to do.
I told you all, he’s still got the juice, Ingram said after hearing what Peterson was doing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his first game as a Cardinal.
That same year, about 530 miles away, Brentwood High School in Tennessee posted its best ever season, going 14-1 and winning the football team’s first ever state championship. The team set school records with 5,432 yards of offense and 3,085 rushing yards, while its 384 points were 2nd in school history.
And there is little doubt that Brentwood’s incredible season would have been possible without one of its player’s fathers coming aboard as offensive coordinator: Les Steckel.
Their offense is advanced beyond what other people do, the opposing head coach of Riverdale High School said the week leading up to the title game. It looks like it’s being run by someone that knows a little something more than the rest of us.
They didn’t. In a night of surprises, that play was the biggest. Everyone went nuts. Commentators, fans, and even former players all remarked on Twitter that they’d never seen the play before.
To me, the 2-point conversion we ran looks like a merging of the wingback reverse and a classic Split T option, perhaps one of the criss-cross reverse plays that Faurot ran, (and that SB Nation broke down in 2015).
He then bounced around in assistant positions, and in 1997, he came to Tennessee with the Oilers/Titans as offensive coordinator.
I used the search tool in Pro Football Reference, and sure enough I found that in 1999, the Titans unsuccessfully ran the Howard-Miller-Trubisky play on a 2-point conversion, with Frank Wycheck in the Miller role and Steve McNair at quarterback.
Eagles’ QB Carson Wentz is coming off a career-high game, where he threw four touchdowns — three in the first quarter alone — and only one interception in the team’s Week 5 win over Arizona. Wentz continues to be a topic of hot debate, but one thing’s for sure: He’s exciting to watch. He also leads NFL QBs — including the almighty Tom Brady — in at least one category: Wentz is the only QB to record multiple games with a perfect passer rating on third down this season.
Big things were expected out of the team’s free agent receivers Torrey Smith and Alshon Jeffery, but the big question mark the past couple of seasons was WR Nelson Agholor. With former Eagles Jordan Matthews sidelined earlier in the year, Agholor moved into the slot during training camp, and things haven’t been the same since. The third-year player snagged a big 72-yard score last week — and honored DeSean Jackson in the process.
Aaron Rodgers wasn’t the only Packers starter to leave Sunday’s game with injury — he’s just the one everyone’s going to be talking about Monday.
Rodgers led a litany of Green Bay athletes into the locker room against Minnesota, joining players like Quinten Rollins, David Bakhtiari, and Bryan Bulaga on the injury Cheap Real Jerseys report in a game where the Packers lost much more than just an NFC North rivalry game.
Rodgers’ season may be over after a brutal hit from Anthony Barr ended his day after just two series. The two-time MVP suffered a broken collarbone that could take anywhere from six-to-10 weeks to heal — and could effectively keep him off the field until the postseason. That’s terrible news for a Packers team whose identity was staked in the dynamic passer who led comeback wins — both playoff Cheap Reversible Basketball Jerseys and regular season — to crush the Dallas Cowboys the past two seasons.
