Victor Bolden in Week 5 Fooch’s update: The 49ers have a week to decide [url=http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/deforest-buckner-jersey]http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/deforest-buckner-jersey[/url] , so can wait until after the Cardinals game if they want.The San Francisco 49ers have an assortment of injury issues, and head coach Kyle Shanahan said they might have to look at bringing in some healthy bodies at various positions.While they figure out who to bring in for Tuesday workouts, the 49ers have a decision to make with regard to wide receiver Victor Bolden. Over the summer, the NFL suspended Bolden for four games due to a violation of the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. He was allowed to take part in training camp and the preseason, but the 49ers then placed him on the Reserve/Suspended list as they cut down to 53 players.Bolden’s suspension is over, and the team has until Wednesday to figure out what to do. He currently does not count against the 53-man roster, and the 49ers get a two-day exemption to figure out if they want to release a player to make room for Bolden, or release Bolden to free agency.A year ago, Bolden spent the first 13 games of the season on the 53-man roster, and the final three games on injured reserve. In his 13 games on the roster [url=http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/alfred-morris-jersey]Womens Alfred Morris Jersey[/url] , Bolden was active for nine games and inactive for four games. He was primarily a special teams player, appearing in 122 special teams snaps and 27 offensive snaps. He was the team’s starting kick returner, with 19 returns for 396 yards (20.8 yards per return).The 49ers held onto him through the suspension, and while there was nothing lost in keeping him around, it does suggest they might have a spot for him on the roster. At the time of the suspension announcement, Bolden said he unknowingly used a supplement on the NFL’s banned substance list. He acknowledged needing to take full responsibility for not verifying the ingredients of the supplement, and the 49ers seemed to accept that it was an unintentional mistake.D.J. Reed is currently the team’s starting kick returner, averaging 30.3 yards per return on nine kickoffs. The rules have changed in terms of the kick coverage players being delayed getting down the field, but Reed is fourth in return average, so he’s finding success in the role.There are currently six wide receivers on the depth chart: Pierre Gar莽on [url=http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/marquise-goodwin-jersey]Womens Marquise Goodwin Jersey[/url] , Marquise Goodwin, Trent Taylor, Dante Pettis, Kendrick Bourne, and Richie James. Through four games, James has been active once, playing seven offensive snaps and no special teams snaps.If the 49ers want Bolden back on the roster, my guess is they would release James in hopes he gets through waivers and they can sign him to the practice squad. James was an explosive option in the preseason, but has not been able to earn a spot on the game-day roster aside from the one game active when Marquise Goodwin was hurt.The 49ers have two days to make a decision, and I suspect any roster move does not formally happen until Wednesday.Matt Breida pushing to play on Monday Night Football [url=http://www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com]www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com[/url] , but still a game-time decision The San Francisco 49ers still are uncertain about the status of running back Matt Breida for Monday Night Football against the Green Bay Packers, according to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero. Breida is pushing to play in spite of an ankle injury that cost him two days of practice this week, but it is a game-time decision.The team will announce inactives at approximately 3:45 p.m. PT. However, they have a decision to make three hours earlier. Teams playing on Monday have until 1 p.m. PT that day to promote a player from the practice squad. Teams playing on Sunday have to decide by 1 p.m. on Saturday because the league does not allow Sunday transactions. However, because Monday is a normal day of business, MNF teams get the benefit of waiting until game day.The 49ers will decide by then whether or not they want to promote running backs Jeff Wilson or Matt Dayes from the practice squad. The decision will likely come down to the last minute because it depends on other positional needs. The 49ers will be without wide receiver Dante Pettis, and their questionable list includes Breida, WR Pierre Gar莽on, TE George Kittle, OG Mike Person [url=http://www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com/t-shirts-authentic]San Francisco 49ers T-Shirt[/url] , C Weston Richburg, OTJoe Staley, and nickel back K’Waun Williams.Odds are pretty good that whole group is playing, but if the 49ers are short-handed at one of those positions, they might decide they can’t afford to waive another player to make room for Wilson or Dayes.Pre-game warmups will be critical for the 49ers to figure out Breida’s status, as well as that of the rest of the questionable players. I suspect the team will be going through whatever they can at the hotel beforehand, but it would make sense to get the injured players out to Lambeau Field a little earlier than normal to put them through their paces. And it is still possible even if they promote Wilson or Dayes that they decide Breida can be active. My guess is a promotion precludes it, but we’ll find out later this afternoon.
Chicago Bears [url=http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-customized]Womens Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys[/url] , meaning either the recently acquired Antonio Morrison or Korey Toomer will start in his place at inside linebacker.Burks was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury sustained last month before the Packers' third preseason game in Oakland.Morrison was acquired in a trade with the Colts two weeks ago. Toomer, a fifth-year player, was signed by the Packers was last week after being cut by the San Francisco 49ers.They would play alongside leading tackler Blake Martinez in the Packers' base 3-4 defense.Green Bay's top return man, receiver Trevor Davis, is also out with a hamstring injury. He was added to the injury report about two hours before the game.CHICAGO-GREEN BAYBears: DB Kevin Toliver II, DB DeAndre Houston-Carson, LB Kylie Fitts [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com]www.49erscheapshops.com[/url] , OL Rashaad Coward, WR Javon Wims, TE Daniel Brown, DT Bilal NicholsPackers: QB Tim Boyle, WR Trevor Davis, S Josh Jones, S Raven Greene [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-t-shirts]San Francisco 49ers T-Shirt[/url] , LB Oren Burks, OL Alex Light, WR J'Mon MooreReuben Foster excited to be back, ready to face ‘fast as hell’ Chiefs offense The San Francisco 49ers welcome back a critical piece to their defense this week with the return of linebacker Reuben Foster. He was suspended the first two games of the season, and was able to re-join the team on Monday following the 49ers Week 2 win over the Detroit Lions.Foster met with the media on Thursday, and Cam Inman got some video of a couple minutes of the session. You can watch it below. Foster opens talking about how he watched the Lions game.It would seem like he forgot what time the game was started, thus the rush home. And clearly he is a big Chik-Fil-A fan given how he quickly remembered they couldn’t have been open for the game since it took place on a Sunday and they are closed on Sundays.Foster also talked about Monday being like a holiday in getting back to practice. Until this week he was able to attend meetings and do conditioning work [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-hats]San Francisco 49ers Hats[/url] , but he could not practice with the rest of the team or be with them on the sidelines on game day. He also talked about “playing [his] cards right” and, “doing good off the field and on the field. Just don’t do nothing off the field, so I won’t be off the field again.”The 49ers face a Chiefs offense that has ridiculous speed up and down the roster. Foster said he has been watching Chiefs film for over two weeks now, and they are physical and “fast as hell.” We won’t see him deep on Tyreek Hill by any means, but I imagine he gets some work against All Pro tight end Travis Kelce.
[url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/mike-mcglinchey-jersey-cheap]Cheap Mike McGlinchey Jersey[/url] , after losing their last three games, it doesn’t get any easier for the San Francisco 49ers. They travel to quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ house for a Monday Night Football showdown with the Green Bay Packers.Both teams are coming off of losses and look to build some momentum heading into the middle part of the season. Here’s what the 49ers will need to do in order to have some success in Green Bay and squeak out a victory.1. QB C.J. Beathard and the 49ers’ offense can’t turn the ball over.The 49ers’ offense turned the ball over five — let me say that again — FIVE times last week against the Cardinals. They weren’t able to withstand all those errors against Cardinals’ rookie quarterback Josh Rosen. If San Francisco has any semblance of five turnovers against Rodgers, it’s going to be a long flight home from Wisconsin. Beathard has to be more protective of the ball, not sit in the pocket and hold onto the ball. The 49ers’ signal caller is going to need to get rid of the ball in the face of pressure and live to play the next down.Kyle Shanahan’s offense isn’t good enough to overcome mistakes and giving Rodgers extra cracks at a leaky 49ers’ defense at home doesn’t seem like the brightest idea. If the 49ers have any more than one turnover, it’s a safe bet that they’re losing the ball game.2. San Francisco’s defense needs to hold Rodgers and Co. to field goals.One of the weaknesses for the Packers’ offense early in the season has been their ability to convert touchdowns in the red zone. They’re 19th in the NFL in touchdown percentage, a statistic that is a ratio of touchdowns to red-zone trips. The Packers struggled in the red zone last week against the Lions, as the Detroit defense forced field goals instead of touchdowns. Robert Saleh’s group will need to follow that recipe on Monday night in order to stay close with the Packers.If the 49ers are going to win, it’s going to need to be a low-scoring game in the ‘teens. Rodgers is going to move the ball within the 20s [url=http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/joe-staley-jersey]http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/joe-staley-jersey[/url] , so the 49ers will need to hold him off once he gets to the red zone.3. Exploit Green Bay’s middling rush defense and win time of possession battle.With running back Matt Breida listed as questionable, there is a good chance this means that carries will be split by backups Alfred Morris and Raheem Mostert. The two will have to take advantage of Green Bay’s middle-of-the-road run defense. Through five weeks, the Packers have been giving up 105 yards per game on the ground, tied for 15th in the NFL. On the flip side, the 49ers have been the fourth-best rushing team in the NFL, averaging 136.2 yards per game.San Francisco should look to keep the ball on the ground, limit the number of drop-backs that Beathard will have to take and keep Rodgers on the Green Bay sideline. The 49ers’ best defense on Monday might be leaving their offense on the field for as long as possible.It’s going to be tough if Breida can’t play, but Morris has proven to be successful in Shanahan’s running scheme in the past. The 49ers are facing an uphill battle on Monday night [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-nick-mullens-jersey]Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey[/url] , but if they’re able to execute on these three keys, their chances for a win dramatically increase.Elijah Lee not fined, LeGarrette Blount fined $10,026 for unnecessary roughness One of the lesser storylines coming out of the San Francisco 49ers win over the Detroit Lions was Lions running back LeGarrette Blount’s antics in the fourth quarter. On second down, quarterback Matthew Stafford scrambled out of the pocket and took off down the sideline. 49ers linebacker Elijah Lee met Stafford and knocked him out of bounds and onto his back. Assuming it was a late hit, Bount then clocked Lee from the sidelines resulting in a penalty. After it’s all said and done, Blount was fined $10,026 for the incident [url=http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-nick-mullens-jersey]Nick Mullens Jersey[/url] , Lee got nothing. There was some question on if Lee would get fined for the hit on Stafford, but the hit was legal. Stafford was inbounds and a runner, making him fair game for defenses to attack. The Blount hit, however was not, as it was after the play was blown dead. Despite what the announcing crew may have said to the contrary, the officials got this right. This isn’t the first time Blount has been involved in an issue. Many may remember the infamous “Duck and Cover” incident from his college days at Oregon where Blount decked an opposing player for Boise State after a 19-8 loss. The incident derailed Blount’s college career. In any case, this is one of those few situations where the NFL got it right.
[url=http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-customized]Cheap Customized New York Giants Jerseys[/url] , Odell Beckham get “Kudos,” Ereck Flowers earns “Wet Willie” There are no consolation prizes in the NFL. The New York Giants talked bravely after Sunday’s 20-15 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars about the good things they could take from their season opener.Still, this was a loss. In a game that was always within their grasp. At home. When they held the Jacksonville offense scoreless in the second half, and to 13 points overall. It’s a game they coulda/woulda/shoulda won had they just made a few more plays — a point coach Pat Shurmur was eager to make after the game. “That’s the margin we deal with,” he said.Problem is, winning teams make those plays. Teams that go home at the end of the season without playoff berths don’t. Sunday was an opportunity lost for the Giants.With that said, let’s get to the “Kudos & Wet Willies.”Kudos to ...Saquon Barkley — Not a bad day’s work when your first NFL appearance ends with All-Pro defensive end Calais Campbell saying you “might one day be a Hall of Famer.”Barkley showed why the Giants drafted him with an incredible 68-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, breaking two tackles at the line of scrimmage and a third at the sideline to turn what looked like a sure Jacksonville victory into a game the Giants had a chance to win. “You feel like you’re doing a good job, you’ve got a lot of population to the football, you got a lot of people trying to bring him down,” said Jacksonville coach Doug Marrone. “Then all of a sudden, bam!”You get the idea after Sunday that Marrone won’t be the only coach wondering what Barkley just did to his team.Odell Beckham Jr. — Eleven receptions in 15 targets for 111 yards. Not a bad way to return to action. Beckham surpassed Anquan Boldin’s record of 314 catches in 50 games to become the NFL leader in receptions through the first 50 games of a career. In 48 games, he now has 324. The only thing missing Sunday was a game-changing explosive play. We saw enough Sunday to know [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-alec-ogletree-jersey]Color Rush Alec Ogletree Jersey[/url] , though, that those will come.Damon Harrison — The game’s best run-stuffing interior lineman came through with a tackle for loss on Jacksonville’s first play. He ended up with six tackles and more than held his own.Eli Apple — The third-year corner was challenged deep by Blake Bortles twice, and knocked away both passes. The Giants need Apple to play solid football, and on Sunday he was up to the task.Aldrick Rosas — The second-year placekicker got his season off to a good start, going 3-for-3 on field goals, the longest of which was a 44-yarder. He also got 3 touchbacks on 5 kickoffs.Janoris Jenkins — Gave up a 34-yard completion to Keelan Cole on the Jaguars’ first pass of the game. Other than that, Jackrabbit was outstanding. When Blake Bortles went back to that well later in the first quarter on a pass for Donte Moncrief, Jenkins tip-toed along the sideline for a pick. He defended 2 passes. He was a force against the run and ended up with 7 tackles. He played a lot like the 2016 version of Jenkins, a version that was really, really good.Wet Willies to ...Ereck Flowers — We will get to the rest of the offensive line in a minute, but Flowers deserves a special category all his own. Maybe he should Maybe the fourth-year offensive tackle should get the “not so super secret double-fisted Wet Willie.” Flowers started his season with a penalty. Not just any penalty — a tripping penalty. Two plays later he negated a 34-yard pass by Manning with a holding penalty that occurred so close to the end zone, where it would have been a safety, that Jacksonville challenged. Flowers gave up a sack. He was beaten soundly on the play that turned into an Eli Manning pick 6 [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-dalvin-tomlinson-jersey]Youth Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey[/url] , forcing the quarterback to move and opening up an opportunity for Jaguars defensive tackle Abry Jones to tip the pass.We will talk more about this in Tuesday’s ‘Valentine’s Views,’ but Flowers also blew out of the locker room without talking to reporters, leaving the rest of the Giants offensive linemen to stand at their lockers and talk about him.Offensive line as a whole — Nate Solder had a holding penalty. Will Hernandez have up a sack. Patrick Omameh was the blocker when Abry Jones got his hands up to deflect a Manning pass and create the fateful pick 6. Excepting the Barkley heroics, the Giants barely averaged 2 yards per carry. They couldn’t get 2 yards on a fourth down run when they needed it.Let’s be real. Manning was right when he said after the game that Jacksonville “might be the most talented defense and front four we go against all season.” Still, constant pressure on Manning. Six runs for zero or negative yards. Too many penalties (two on Flowers, one on Solder). The biggest fear with the Giant offense is that the line won’t play well enough for the play-making weapons they have to be used to their fullest potential. That was the case on Sunday. Evan Engram — Drops. Drops. Drops. Drops. Drops. The second-year player led all tight ends with 14 of them last season. He struggled with them in training camp and the preseason. He struggled with them again Sunday. Wide open, Engram dropped a pass that would have gone for at least a 15-yard gain. There was also a deep ball down the right sideline that appeared catchable, and perhaps one more. Engram told the New York Post that “I pretty much had three drops.”Here’s the thing. He has talked about those drops a lot, he has worked at fixing the problem, but it’s not going away. Engram’s value to the Giants is his ability to create mismatches as a receiver. If they can’t trust him to catch the ball that value is severely diminished.Kaelin Clay — Three punt returns for just 4 yards. A muffed punt with the Giants trailing by 5 points and less than a minute to go that took away any chance for last-second heroics. So, how is it that Clay is an upgrade from Hunter Sharp or Kalif Raymond? He might be, but he sure didn’t get off to a good start in trying to prove it.Brad Penner-USA TODAY SportsThoughts on Pat Shurmur’s debut I’m not assigning the coach a “Kudo” or a “Wet Willie.” And I really hate questioning play calls. My belief is a good play call is one that works, no matter whether it makes sense or not. A bad play? Any play call that doesn’t work.That said [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/rhett-ellison-jersey]Authentic Rhett Ellison Jersey[/url] , there were a couple of questionable play calls by Shurmur in this one. Handing the ball to Barkley up the middle on fourth-and-2, against a tremendous defense and with an offensive line that wasn’t getting the job done is questionable. So, too, is running a reverse to Beckham on third-and-goal from the Jacksonville 8-yard line. That play lost a yard, and was never going to work. Gotta throw the ball in that spot. Since it didn’t work, I guess we can also question running the ball with Barkley on the failed two-point conversion attempt.Shurmur chose not to challenge a spot in the fourth quarter when Barkley was rules just short of a first down after catching a pass on third-and-five. The Giants punted. The coach also chose not to use Beckham to return a punt in the final minute, when Kaelin Clay fumbled away the Giants’ last chance.Shurmur has done a terrific job. I loved how he ran the Giants’ spring practices. How he has built relationships with players. How he ran training camp and the preseason. He goes out of his way to try and relate to the media. I’m not sure I loved how he managed Sunday’s game.Giants news, 9/3: Davis Webb reactions, John Mara previews season, more Good morning, New York Giants fans!

New York Giants linebacker Alec Ogletree said Friday that it’s a “bittersweet” time because the regular season is starting, but players who will stay are bidding goodbye to players who may be seeing their NFL dreams come to an end.Giants coach Pat Shurmur said after Thursday’s preseason finale that the Giants have “enough information” to make good decisions about the roster.“I feel like we’ve got enough information,” Shurmur said.” We played all the players through the preseason, so we’re not going to be guessing as to whether a guy can do it or not. We’re in a position now to pick that initial 53-man roster.”Cutting players you have worked with for months is part of a head coach’s job, but not an easy one. “The human element of it is tough,” Shurmur said. “I think we all get used to it, but if you’ve got a heart and you’ve got a soul, you’re talking about guys’ livelihood. It’s a tough situation that way, but it’s real.”Shurmur said Friday that but that the Giants “have a decent idea” who will and won’t make the roster. We will find out who those guys are today.GM Dave Gettleman said Thursday that the Giants “will keep the 53 best” players and would then “work the waiver wire” to try and upgrade spots on the roster where possible.We will be tracking the cuts between now and the 4 p.m. ET deadline on Saturday to reach the roster limit [url=http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-nate-solder-jersey]Nate Solder Jersey[/url] , so keep checking back for updates.

Francis— WR Travis Rudolph— DT Tyrell Chavis— LB Calvin Munson— OL Zac Kerin— CB Grant Haley— CB Chris Lewis-Harris— S Andrew Adams— WR Roger Lewis Jr.— RB Jalen Simmons— WR Kalif Raymond— OT Chris Scott— WR Amba Etta-Tawo— K Marshall Koehn — ILB Mark Herzlich — DT Izaah Lunsford — S Darian Thompson— LB Warren Long— TE Garrett Dickerson— CB Leonard Johnson— CB Mike Jones— OL Nick Gates (placed on IR)— OLB Avery MossThought Darian Thompson might end up on IR due to his lingering hamstring injury. Didn’t think Giants would outright waive him. If Thompson, a 2016 third-round pick goes unclaimed, he reverts to the Giants injured reserve list. [Full story]Garrett Dickerson, an undrafted free agent, seems like a favorite to land on the practice squad.With Leonard Johnson, Chris Lewis-Harris and Grant Haley all released, the Giants are obviously going to be scouring the waiver wire for cornerback help.A fifth-round pick last season by then-GM Jerry Reese, Avery Moss missed most of the spring with an injury and never caught up. I don’t believe he has practice squad eligibility, so he will be moving on.There was some thought that veteran offensive lineman Chris Scott could sneak onto the roster. That, apparently, isn’t happening.More to come on the release of veteran linebacker Mark Herzlich. [Full story]It has been obvious for a while that Aldrick Rosas was going to win the placekicking job.Amba Etta-Tawo had a good spring and a fast start to training camp. He disappeared in the preseason, though [url=http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-sterling-shepard-jersey]Authentic Sterling Shepard Jersey[/url] , with his only reception being Thursday’s 41-yard touchdown catch-and-run. He would seem like a logical practice squad candidate.Jhurell Pressley had two good preseason games, but he was never really likely to make the team. He was roster fill to help the Giants through preseason.Surprised by the cut of A.J. Francis. Said multiple times that he and Robert Thomas have similar skill sets, but thought both guys would make it. Guess that might be good news for someone like Romeo Okwara. [Full story]Travis Rudolph made a splash in the 2017 preseason, but his lack of speed and size made it difficult for him. He was also injured for a lengthy stretch in preseason, limiting his opportunities.Tyrell Chavis would be a logical practice squad addition.In my 53-man roster projection I had Grant Haley going to the practice squad. Thought he might sneak onto the roster once news broke that Chris Lewis-Harris was being released. Looks like the Giants will be scouring the waiver wire for some cornerback help. I would think Haley will land on the practice squad if he clears waivers.The Alex Tanney move is no surprise. He was never making the roster unless there was a major injury to Eli Manning, Davis Webb or Kyle Lauletta.The release of Kalif Raymond likely means Hunter Sharp wins the punt return job.Andrew Adams is a player the Giants just didn’t seem to believe was a fit in James Bettcher’s defense. I thought Chris Lewis-Harris played well enough on Thursday vs. the New England Patriots to earn a roster spot. Giants thought otherwise. [Full story]We have been telling you since the spring that the Giants’ new coaching staff has had Roger Lewis Jr., who had 26 receptions last season, buried on the depth chart. Now, the Giants are moving on without him.2018 Waiver Wire OrderOrderTeamOrderTeam

Bucs lose Smith [url=http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-adam-humphries-jersey]Youth Adam Humphries Jersey[/url] , in today’s practice as left tackle Donovan Smith went down with an apparent right knee injury. Smith has not missed a start since entering the league three years ago. Smith can be seen in the clip below attempting to walk off with much help from trainers. Tampa Bay has to hope for some positive news to what otherwise appears to be a bad injury. We’ll be keeping an eye on this situation closely and hope to get an update after practice on Smith as well as safety Justin Evans, who was also reportedly injured.Evans was carted off the field shortly before Donovan Smith went down according to Pewter Report. This would be a huge blow to a blossoming young safety that the Bucs plan to lean on heavily. With injuries mounting up for this Buccaneer team, the regular season can’t come soon enough.Buccaneers represented in ESPN’s Top 100 After being snubbed by the NFL’s Top 100 on NFL Network, the Buccaneers have some representation in ESPN’s Top 100 projected list where they predict the top 100 performers in the NFL for the 2018 season.Gerald McCoy came in at number 46 [url=http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-ali-marpet-jersey]http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-ali-marpet-jersey[/url] , getting praise for his quick get-off at the snap and having the most sacks in the NFL at defensive tackle since 2013.Mike Evans comes in at 49 as only the third receiver in NFL history to have over 1,000 yards in the first four seasons of a career. Finally, Lavonte David gets some recognition coming in at number 70. David has the most tackles since 2012 and is the only player in history to have 450+ tackles, 15+ sacks [url=http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-vernon-hargreaves-iii-jersey]Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey[/url] , and 10+ interceptions in his first five seasons.Although there may be a few payers who take exception to not being named on the list - Kwon Alexander, Brent Grimes, and Jason Pierre-Paul to name a few - it can only serve as motivation that this team still gets ignoredand overlooked.Well, there’s only one way to change that. The list was compiled very similarly to the way the NFL Network does their list. In ESPN’s case [url=http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-ryan-jensen-jersey]Authentic Ryan Jensen Jersey[/url] , they surveyed the NFL experts at ESPN to rate players using a 1-to-100 scale, then compiled the average to fill out their list.As always, Jenna Laine did a great job representing the Buccaneers.
The Buccaneers have moved on from their week one win over the New Orleans Saints [url=http://www.authenticstampabaybuccaneers.com/cheap-ryan-jensen-jersey]http://www.authenticstampabaybuccaneers.com/cheap-ryan-jensen-jersey[/url] , which means the team is in full preparation mode for their game against the defending champs. The Eagles will visit Raymond James Stadium this weekend and both teams will have an opportunity to get to 2-0. There were many positives to take away from Sunday’s win for the Bucs, but there were negatives as well, mostly on the defensive side of the ball. Defensive coordinator Mike Smith spoke to the media on Wednesday afternoon and acknowledged that his defense still has a wayto go. “When you have your first game of the season, you usually have a lot of work to do. Not all the time, but a majority of the time,” Smith said. “I thought that there were periods of that game that we played solid defense. We did some things very well, in terms of taking the ball away, scoring on defense and defending the run.” After the first three Saints drives, many fans were calling for Smith to be fired on the spot, but the takeaways his defense created, turned out to be what decided the game. Without those two forced fumbles, Tampa Bay is likely to be on the other end of the stick. “Taking the ball away in the NFL is the number one indicator of whether you are going to win or lose. When you score on defense, there is a good chance you’re going to win the game,” Smith said. News broke on Wednesday morning that Vernon Hargreaves will miss the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury suffered in Sunday’s win. With Grimes also dealing with a groin injury, rookies M.J. Stewart and Carlton Davis, will now become full time starters. Smith is confident in their ability moving forward. “Those young guys [Stewart and Davis] that we drafted last year in April, we knew that they were going to have to come in and contribute. We didn’t think that it was going to be week one and week two, but they have a good understanding of what needs to be done in the secondary,” Smith said. “They are resilient guys, their tough guys and that’s what you have to be when you play DB in this league.”While preparing for the Eagles, the Buccaneers have turned to Vinny Curry and Beau Allen for a little insight on their former team.“They are a great resource for us. They know a bunch of guys on that team,” Smith said. “They have been able to give us some information and we think that will help us going forward. It’s going to be an emotional game for those guys as well, and we want them to be even keeled as much as possible.” There is no secret that Doug Pederson is one of the more aggressive play callers in the entire NFL. We saw it all last season and once again in week one, when he called the “Philly Special.” When facing these types of teams, Smith emphasized the importance of being on top of your game.“You have to really have good eye discipline. They are probably one of the league leaders in going for it on fourth down and again, when you have to defend four downs instead of three downs, it completely changes the dynamic of the game,” Smith said. “He [Pederson] will also go for it on two point plays and we got some experience there as well in game one in terms of ‘hey we are defending two yards guys we have to get it done.’ We didn’t get it done last week and we have to be able to do it this week.”It’ll certainly be interesting to see how the Buccaneers and Mike Smith combat the RPO’s and the aggressive play calling of the Eagles. The defense must be better this Sunday if Tampa has aspirations of starting 2-0 for the first time since 2010. Four quarterbacks are certain to go in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday night, all of them early.Five might be off the board midway through the top 32 picks. And, who knows given the desperation pro teams are displaying about finding that franchise QB, we could see six of them go on opening night.Barring trades — and there will be a few of them — here's one attempt at a mock draft.1. ClevelandOnce more, the Browns try to find their long-term guy at the key offensive position. There are plenty of positives and enough negatives about the top four quarterbacks to make this a crapshoot. We'll roll with the QB with the most upside ...JOSH ALLEN, QB, WYOMING2. New York GiantsDespite the screams from Big Blue fans to find the replacement for Eli Manning, the Giants believe he has two or three very good years left. So do we.

New York Jets (from Indianapolis)They traded to this spot with one express purpose: finding the next Joe Namath. Or a reasonable facsimile.SAM DARNOLD, QB, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA4.

They get to bookend him with this crop's top defensive player.BRADLEY CHUBB, DE, NORTH CAROLINA STATE5. DenverMany teams will call the Broncos when they see that two of the hyped quarterbacks remain.

Guess what: Miami's staying put was the best strategy.JOSH ROSEN, QB, UCLA12. Buffalo (from Cincinnati)Lots of groaning going on in Western New York after division rival Miami takes Rosen. The Bills could reach here for a quarterback, but are better served addressing the chasm on the offensive line with ...MIKE McGLINCHY, T, Notre Dame13. WashingtonOther than the trade for Alex Smith, a big one of course, the Redskins have been relatively quiet this offseason. There's a need on the defensive line and in the secondary. With such a choice, go for the pass rusher.MARCUS DAVENPORT, DE, UTSA14. Green BayThis is not a top-heavy draft for receivers, but one stands out as a first-rounder. Aaron Rodgers has expressed some "differences" with the Packers on offseason moves, but will like this one.CALVIN RIDLEY, WR, ALABAMA15. ArizonaBruce Arians is gone. Carson Palmer is gone. Most significantly, Tyrann Mathieu is gone, and that's the guy who will be replaced here.DERWIN JAMES, S, FLORIDA STATE16. BaltimoreOzzie Newsome's last draft.

Here is the injury report for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 5 game against the Baltimore Ravens:Cleveland BrownsPositionPlayerInjuryWedThuFriGame StatusPositionPlayerInjuryWedThuFriGame StatusBaltimore RavensPositionPlayerInjuryWedThuFriGame StatusPositionPlayerInjuryWedThuFriGame StatusInjury NotesThe only player out for the Browns is LB James Burgess.Two players are listed as questionable: OLB Christian Kirksey and FS Damarious Randall. Randall has been playing through his heel injury for two games now [url=http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-terrance-mitchell-jersey]White Terrance Mitchell Jersey[/url] , so I expect him to do it again. Kirksey has a case of the flu, but is expected to play too.There was some concern earlier in the week about the knee injuries for both WR Jarvis Landry and WR Antonio Callaway, but both players practiced fully on Friday.QB Tyrod Taylor will be the backup this week. TE Seth DeValve is off the injury report and could be in line for some playing time again on Sunday.Two players are out for the Ravens: OLB Tim Williams and CB Anthony Averett. Seven players are listed as questionable for Baltimore; the only one there might be some concern about is depth NT Michael Pierce, who was added to the injury report on Friday. The Pittsburgh Steelers will be a little short-handed as they prepare for their home opener against Kanas City.Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, cornerback Joe Haden and guard David DeCastro could all miss practice time after getting dinged up in a season-opening tie in Cleveland.Roethlisberger is dealing with a right (throwing) elbow issue [url=http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-jamie-collins-jersey]http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-jamie-collins-jersey[/url] , Haden has a hamstring problem and DeCastro fractured one of his hands during the four-hour marathon in a monsoon.Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday he will monitor their participation before making any sort of judgment on whether they will be available when the Chiefs (1-0) visit Heinz Field.The injuries don't appear to be serious, with Haden the most likely candidate to sit out if his hamstring doesn't recover in time.Tomlin described Roethlisberger's achy elbow the byproduct of "the bumps and bruises associated with play."Roethlisberger raised his concerns after the bizarre 21-21 tie in Cleveland, a game in which the 36-year-old turned the ball over five times, three on interceptions and twice on fumbles. Tomlin said Roethlisberger's elbow had nothing to do with the miscues.DeCastro fractured his hand during the game but did not miss a play. The All-Pro cleared the way for a pair of touchdown runs by second-year running back James Conner, including a textbook kickout block on Conner's 22-yard scoring run in the second quarter.If Haden is unable to play [url=http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-nick-chubb-jersey]Youth Nick Chubb Jersey[/url] , the Steelers will turn to Cam Sutton to fill the void. Sutton grabbed his first career NFL interception when he picked off Tyrod Taylor's lob late in the fourth quarter. Sutton's play was part of what Tomlin described as a "very positive" performance by his team's restructured secondary.Tomlin also praised the new alignment at outside linebacker of T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree. The two switched sides during the offseason, with Dupree set up to go at the quarterback's blind side. The two combined for five of Pittsburgh's seven sacks, four of them going to Watt.The Steelers are also planning to get ready for Kansas City without All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell, who remains out while waiting to sign his one-year franchise tender. Tomlin said he has not had any contact with Bell, who has dominated the Chiefs during his career. He is averaging 126.8 yards rushing against Kansas City in four regular-season games and racked up 170 yards in a divisional round win two years ago.Conner filled in capably for Bell in Cleveland [url=http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-seth-devalve-jersey]White Seth DeValve Jersey[/url] , piling up 192 total yards on 36 touches. Tomlin is not concerned about relying too heavily on Conner, pointing out Conner was a workhorse during his college career at the University of Pittsburgh."That's one of the things that made him attractive," Tomlin said.
