Rex Ryan Jersey on President Donald Trump’s comments: ‘I’m pissed off’

Arthur Jones Authentic Jersey
Rex Ryan has made it clear in recent months he is an ardent supporter of Donald Trump. In late July, he told reporters, “I think anybody who is against him now is against our country. Without question, I’m proud to be a proud supporter of Donald Trump.”

But Trump’s controversial remarks Friday, calling national anthem protesters in the NFL “sons of b—” and saying they should be “fired,” have angered the former NFL coach and current NFL broadcaster.

“I’m pissed off,” Ryan said on ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown.” “I supported Donald Trump. [These comments] are appalling to me… I never signed up for that.

“I’m reading these comments and it’s appalling to me. Calling our players SOBs and all that kind of stuff. That’s not the men that I know. The men that I know in the locker room I’m proud of. I’m proud to be associated with those people.”

Kevin King, Green Bay Packers cornerback: “That was a tough decision. It was a tough decision. … I haven’t sat before, and it’s something that’s been on my mind but I didn’t want to do it for different reasons, but when I heard some comments that were made recently that put it over the top. I don’t know if it’s something that I plan on doing every game because my grandpa is a veteran and have respect for that, but in terms of what’s gone on recently I thought today was a great opportunity to show my support and what I thought was right.” King was one of three Packers players who sat during the anthem.

Rishard Matthews, Tennessee Titans wide receiver: “I’m tired of hearing stick to sports. It comes down to right and wrong in this word. If you see wrong and don’t say anything that’s wrong. As minorities, what do you want to happen before we say anything? They tried to have a silent protest and look what happened. It’s your right to stand or sit down. You have that right and you’re not allowing that to happen.” Matthews stayed in the locker room along with his team.

Robert Griffin III Jersey beef with Santana Moss, explained

Former Washington wide receiver Santana Moss claimed that Robert Griffin III gloated and took credit for Mike Shanahan’s firing in 2013.

In an appearance with 106.7 The Fan and Chad Dukes, Moss said that Griffin took a that’s what happens approach, via the Washington Post:

Come 2013, all of [a sudden] it’s a whole big dilemma in the locker room, in the meeting rooms, and just in our building, that, you know, the man, Mike Shanahan, and RG is not seeing eye to eye, Moss told Dukes of the fractured relationship between Shanahan and Griffin during the quarterback’s second season. You know, we don’t know. We’re players. We sit back and let things be done.

That’s not something that I partake in, so it’s not nothing that I’m interested in. And before you know it, RG’s not playing. … I’m not sure if that was [Griffin’s] whole plan, but when the whole thing went about, we hear that Mike Shanahan’s not coming back the next year, then we hear the quarterback like, ‘Hey, mmhmm.’ Like basically saying that, ‘Hey, you got me out of here not playing last year the last few games, then that’s what happens. You get fired.’ You can’t do that. One thing I just shared with you, God don’t like ugly. The little credit that [Griffin] did take for saying, ‘They didn’t like what I was doing’ or ‘They benched me and not allowing me to play,’ that’s what happens.

Elite Youth Phil Taylor Jersey The AFC West is actually good. Denver is coming off of a big 42-17 victory over the Cowboys. Oakland is back to form with Derek Carr behind center, and the Chiefs exploded into the season with a big win over the vaunted Patriots.

The poor Chargers haven’t fared so well. But the other three teams are looking like the teams to beat in the AFC.

Jordy Nelson exits Falcons game with quad injury

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson exited Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons with a quad injury. He was originally listed as questionable to return to the Sunday Night Football matchup. Later, he was declared out.

It’s not a secret that the Browns are one of the most hilariously bad franchises in all of sports. Since they came back to the NFL in 1999, there hasn’t been a whole lot to cheer about.

What does this mean? The Vikings are now without two quarterbacks, including Teddy Bridgewater, due to knee injuries. Until Bradford is healthy again, they will have to rely on Keenum’s arm. Minnesota signed him over the offseason to serve as a backup behind Bradford. Keenum isn’t a prolific passer like Bradford, but he can extend plays with his legs.

No one knows how this offense will look with Keenum at the helm. After all, this is the same quarterback who threw 2,201 yards to go along with nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions with the Rams last year.

You can’t expect this offense to look like it did in Week 1, when Bradford was one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Keenum doesn’t have the arm talent to make plays consistently in the passing game. If he gets hurt, recently promoted undrafted rookie Kyle Sloter will handle snaps for Minnesota.

Why does this matter? In a competitive NFC North, Minnesota’s playoff hopes depend on Bradford’s durability. Despite the Vikings’ strong defense and rushing attack, this team cannot clinch a playoff spot without Bradford leading the way.

If Bradford’s knee issue continues to linger, this could turn into a long season for Minnesota. Indeed, it’s only Week 2, and there is a lot of football left in this young season. On the other hand, Bradford has an extensive track record of knee injures. He missed more than half of the 2013 season because of a torn ACL. That following preseason, he tore that same ACL again and sat out for the entire 2014 season.

Ben Roethlisberger Jersey and Joe Flacco Jersey are a combined 37-4 against the Browns in their careers

Elite Womens LaVon Brazill Jersey Martellus Bennett hasn’t been much of a factor in fantasy during his first two games with Green Bay, but there’s plenty of room for hope. Bennett was targeted six times in the opener and on 11 occasions against Atlanta on Sunday night. The heavy usage has resulted in only 90 yards and no touchdowns, but Bennett has run a route on 76 percent of the team’s pass plays. Bennett has finished as a top-12 fantasy tight end during each of the past four seasons in which he’s played every game and — despite the slow start — he’s well on his way to another in Green Bay’s high-scoring offense. He figures to see a boost to his already generous 17 percent target with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb both battling injuries. Buy low if you need a tight end.

The good news for Chicago is that Mitchell Trubisky doesn’t have to deal with the Bears’ issues with dropped passes (league-leading seven) or Jordan Howard’s slow start (2.7 yards per rush). He can continue to learn from the bench while the Bears develop and get healthy.

The Bills fired their offensive coordinator following an 0-2 start last season and then averaged 31.0 PPG in their next four games (all wins). The firing of offensive coordinator Ken Zampese could kick-start Cincinnati’s offense in a similar fashion.

Ben Roethlisberger and Joe Flacco are a combined 37-4 against the Browns in their careers, so an 0-2 start against those veterans with a rookie quarterback at the helm isn’t that surprising. Cleveland’s next three games are against the Colts, Bengals and Jets, who are a combined 0-6, so wins or even a win streak could be right around the corner.

NFL to appeal Ezekiel Elliott Jersey injunction to 5th Circuit

Tom Savage Mens Jersey
The NFL has taken steps to reverse a judge’s preliminary injunction that blocks the six-game suspension of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for violating the personal conduct policy.

First, the league asked Judge Amos Mazzant for an emergency stay of the preliminary injunction that he put into place Friday. Second, the NFL filed a notice of appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

Brad Nortman Mens Jersey Rising: Devonta Freeman, RB, Falcons 鈥?Freeman rushed for 1,079 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, while also hauling in 54 receptions for 462 yards and two more touchdowns despite splitting carries. After much drama, he was awarded a monster contract extension this offseason. Freeman is elusive in space, powerful up the middle and an able blocker in blitz pickup. He could have an even bigger season this year should he remain healthy.

Falling: Cam Newton, QB, Panthers 鈥?Newton took the world by storm in 2015 while leading Carolina back to the Super Bowl. Last year was a struggle, however, as the Panthers missed the playoffs. While Newton’s star may currently be drifting in the wrong direction, he has the talent and supporting cast to bounce back and reverse course.

Circle this game on the schedule: Panthers at Falcons, Week 17, Dec. 31 鈥?All the games within this division should be worth watching, but the Week 17 tilt between the Panthers and Falcons could have major playoff implications. Arguably two of the most talented teams in the NFL, Carolina and Atlanta may provide some late-season drama on New Year’s Eve as both teams try to lock up the division title.

Tony Romo Jersey isn’t just better than Phil Simms. He’s a really good broadcaster period

Limited Glover Quin Jersey The early reviews on Tony Romo’s broadcast debut are in, and they’re good! All he had to do was not suck like Phil Simms, saying insightful things like — four new players go in. Four players go out.

It’s a pretty low bar, but Romo cleared it by a mile. It’s just one game and I don’t want to overreact after years of Simms fatigue, but he’s really good. Romo and Jim Nantz were in the booth for the Raiders-Titans game on Sunday.

I was pleasantly surprised, because social media by and large is very negative, for everybody, for all announcers and all networks. The fact that it was positive is satisfying for me, but I also take it with a grain of salt.

When on the PUP list players are not allowed to work with their teammates at all, and there is a possibility that Luck could start the season there. If that happens he is unable to play for the first six weeks of the year.

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has not actually seen his quarterback throw this preseason and Luck has not even said he has thrown yet. The Colts have until 4 p.m. Saturday to either leave Luck on the PUP list or add him to the active roster.

For what it’s worth though, Luck said to Irsay when he comes back he does not anticipate being a different player. He, in fact, said he would be better.

From when him and I have talked it has been ‘Mr. Irsay, let me be clear. When I come back I’m going to be the best football player that I have ever been. I can promise you that. It’s just that I don’t know exactly when that date’s going to be,’ Irsay said. But that’s the type of confidence that he has. He really feels good about getting this thing fixed and going forward.”

Titans’ Mike Mularkey: Safety Johnathan Cyprien out ‘a few weeks’

The Tennessee Titans will be without starting safety Johnathan Cyprien for “a few weeks,” according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Cyprien suffered a hamstring injury halfway through the fourth quarter of the Titans’ 26-16 loss to the Raiders and did not return. The Titans called it a strained hamstring after the game.

Robinson, who has 202 catches for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns in his three-plus seasons, is in the final year of his rookie contract. The sides had preliminary discussions about an extension, but the injury obviously puts a hold on things.

Without Robinson, the Jaguars will have to rely heavily on Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns, as well as veteran Arrelious Benn, who is one of the team’s core special-teams players.

“Well, obviously we have confidence in Marqise and Allen to step up, and obviously to sit here and say, ‘Hey, it doesn’t hurt, next-man-up type of thing,’ we all understand that in our profession, but what I think about is how hard A-Rob has worked and how much he’s put in, and I know what type of year he wanted to have,” coach Doug Marrone said. “I think that’s the thing that gets me as a coach more than anything, is when you watch a player that’s done everything that you’ve asked him to do and was really set up for a great year, and to sustain an injury, it’s obviously a blow.”

Antonio Brown Authentic Jersey showed up to Steelers’ opener wearing Gucci tuxedo

The NFL’s highest paid wide receiver, Antonio Brown, rolled into the Cleveland Browns’ stadium on Sunday dressed in a Gucci tuxedo.

The NFL’s findings are replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions and it ‘cherry picks’ so called evidence to support its conclusion while ignoring other critical evidence, the statement read in part.

Jones was reportedly furious about the league’s decision, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Jones had maintained that he did not expect Elliott to face discipline.
Borje Salming Game Jersey
There’s nothing, Jones told USA Today in July. I have reviewed everything. There is absolutely nothing, not one thing I’ve seen that has anything to do with domestic violence. I’ve seen nothing.

On the day Elliott filed his appeal, Jones declined to comment.

Corey Peters Game Jersey I don’t have anything to say about any of the appeal or anything about that issue, today, Jones said via the team’s website. But certainly I’ll be visiting with you guys about it in the future. Right now, today, is just not the time for me to talk about it.

He’s going to have to take advantage of these windows and hit these big plays. The deep pass was the big concern about Wentz after his rookie season, given that the Eagles starter was 24th in QBR and 26th in passer rating on throws 16-plus yards downfield last year. The new receivers were supposed to solve those problems, but Wentz left two long scores to be had against Washington. Nobody hits 100 percent of those passes, but Wentz’s execution on big plays could be what determines whether the former second overall pick turns into a good quarterback or a superstar.

Quarterback Andy Dalton Jersey has made big plays over the Ravens secondary to A.J. Green Jersey

Patrick Marleau Womens Jersey The Cowboys say their preparation for the game has not changed. They had been preparing Elliott all summer as if he would be able to play against the Giants and said they were ready to alter course with Darren McFadden, Alfred Morris and Rod Smith had the suspension taken effect immediately.

He was not able to be at the walk-through that we had at the end of the day [Tuesday], but he’s really been at everything else, Garrett said. Last week when he went up to New York prior to the Houston game that we were supposed to play he missed those days, but other than that he’s been here and doing everything we’ve asked him to do, and he’s done an excellent job in his preparation.

Multiple players said they had not been paying attention to the case on Tuesday before the ruling but were hoping for the best for Elliott.

J.A. Happ Jersey Quarterback Andy Dalton has made big plays over the Ravens secondary to A.J. Green, who has caught 41 passes for 726 yards and six touchdowns in eight games against Baltimore. Green missed both games against the Ravens last season.

Tight end Tyler Eifert (knee) was limited in practice this week, but could be active for the game. Running back Giovani Bernard is fully healthy, but starter Jeremy Hill has been dealing with an ankle injury.

Cincinnati, however, will need to do a better job protecting Dalton, who was sacked 41 times in 2016. The offensive line took a hit with the departure of left tackle Andrew Whitworth and right guard Kevin Zeitler via free agency. Cedric Ogbuehi, Jake Fisher and Trey Hopkins will try to fill the void, but they have combined for 16 starts in the NFL.

Dalton said protecting the ball will be key against the Ravens’ aggressive defense.

With Antonio Brown Authentic Jersey opposite him and Le’Veon Bell Authentic Jersey in the backfield

Limited Mens Robert Quinn Jersey
With only two games left in the preseason, the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles are both looking to iron out their depth charts ahead of the final 53-man roster cuts. Thursday night’s game should go a long way in solidifying their first and second teams, with the bubble guys getting one more shot in Week 4.

If Bryant is sober now, there is a chance that he’ll be even better than before. His focus could be improved, which may translate into a lot fewer drops. He could also be in better shape and even more explosive, which should scare just about every defensive back in the league. And listen, it’s easy to forget that the guy is still just 25 years old. His best season so far for receptions was 2015 when he had 50, and that was when he had only five starts. His best season total for touchdowns is eight in 2014.

With Antonio Brown opposite him and Le’Veon Bell in the backfield (provided he and the Steelers come to an agreement on fair compensation) you may be thinking there won’t be enough footballs to go around for Bryant to put up big numbers. But I think all the attention teams will show to Brown and Bell, at least early on, is going to allow Bryant to straight up feast on opposing defenses.

After that, it will basically be about picking your poison. Do you want to die slow or die fast? Because it’s worth remembering that Bryant had a 94-yard touchdown reception in 2014 and an 88-yard touchdown reception in 2015. I imagine he hasn’t lost any of that speed yet..
