Cheap New York Giants Authentic Jerseys

OAKLAND, Calif. — Geno Smith’s pregame routine included watching “Sunday NFL Countdown” on ESPN.

Before making just his second start since 2014 and first start as the New York Giants quarterback, Smith caught a whiff of a comment made by his former coach and current analyst Rex Ryan. He didn’t like it.

It came not long after a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen that coach Ben McAdoo could be fired by Monday.

“No, I didn’t see that, and I love Coach Mac. I think we all do,” Smith said before completing 21 of 34 passes for 212 yards with a touchdown and two fumbles in a 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders. “I enjoy playing for him. I want to continue to play for him as long as I can.
“But I did see one of my ex-coaches say he didn’t want me to be his quarterback, and that really upset me, you know? A guy that we saved his job in 2013, and we fought our ass for him both years, and for him to come out and say that just shows you how much of a coward he is.”

Smith was drafted in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft by the New York Jets. He was Ryan’s starting quarterback his first two seasons in the league.

Smith started and finished his first game since 2014 — when Ryan was his coach — on Sunday in Oakland. Beforehand, Ryan’s comment caught him off-guard.

“I was just sitting in my room watching because we have the time difference,” Smith said. “So I am just watching a little bit of football and, you know, see that happened, and it is like, wow, the guy, first of all, you drafted me. Second of all, you started me. Third of all, I went out there, and I gave you everything I had, and then you go out and say that. It’s unfortunate.”

It’s fair to say that the two won’t be exchanging Christmas cards anytime soon.

“No, I don’t care to speak to him again,” Smith said.
He could be busy preparing for another start. McAdoo said Smith didn’t do anything to lose the opportunity to start again in place of Eli Manning, who saw his string of 210 consecutive regular-season starts come to an end.

The Giants next play Sunday at MetLife Stadium against the Dallas Cowboys. It could be another opportunity for McAdoo and the Giants to evaluate Smith.

Smith, 27, started slowly against the Raiders but flashed at times throughout the final three quarters. He led an impressive drive in the fourth quarter that was capped by a 10-yard touchdown laser to rookie tight end Evan Engram that drew the Giants within three. Overall, he was sufficient.

“We said we’re going to take it one week at a time, and these games are emotional,” McAdoo said. “So to stand up here and make a decision right here after the football game is not a good way to go about [naming a starter]. We’ll take a look at the tape first and put our heads together and see where we want to go with it.”

The Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans have amended their trade agreement after cornerback Jeremy Lane failed his physical, a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Lane will revert back to the Seahawks, who had agreed Monday to send him to Houston along with a 2018 fifth-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick for left tackle Duane Brown.
In the new deal, Seattle will give up a higher draft pick to account for Lane’s not being included in the deal. According to the source, Seattle will get Brown and Houston’s 2018 fifth-round pick in exchange for the Seahawks’ 2018 third-rounder and their 2019 second-round pick.

It’s not clear what caused Lane to fail his physical. He began Sunday’s game against Houston as Seattle’s nickelback but was replaced by Justin Coleman after playing six snaps. Asked Monday about that move, coach Pete Carroll said Lane suffered a thigh bruise.

Cornerback Jeremy Lane, who failed his physical Monday, had returned for Sunday's game against Houston after missing two games and most of a third with a groin injury.

Lane had returned for Sunday’s game after missing two games and most of a third with a groin injury. He was listed as questionable heading into the Houston game because of that groin injury and also because of a more recent finger injury.
With Lane reverting back to Seattle and the team adding Brown, the Seahawks are one over the 53-man roster limit and might have to do more salary-cap maneuvering. The Seahawks on Tuesday reworked quarterback Russell Wilson’s contract to free up $4.17 million in cap space, a source confirmed to ESPN. That gave Seattle enough room to absorb Brown’s contract, which included a little less than $5 million for the remainder of 2017. But that was with the remainder of Lane’s salary — a little over $2 million — coming off Seattle’s books.

Lane’s salary is guaranteed for 2017, which means the Seahawks wouldn’t free up any cap space by releasing him. The Seahawks might also decide to keep him to help with depth at cornerback, something they were going to need after trading Lane.

Peterson’s Resurgence Helps Cardinals Fly Past Bucs

The Arizona Cardinals found themselves in unfamiliar territory on Sunday. With less than five minutes elapsed from the start of the third quarter, the Cardinals led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by 31 points. The offense had been rolling and the defense had been suffocating. By the end of the game the starters were in victory formation, taking a deep sigh of relief, after surviving a furious Tampa Bay comeback. The win put the Cardinals back in the conversation for a division title and ultimately a playoff spot. Here is a breakdown of what happened and how the Cardinals weathered the storm.

The Adrian Peterson Show

In the preview for Sunday’s game a major point of emphasis was getting newcomer Adrian Peterson on track. Peterson’s acquisition earlier in the week seemed to energize the team and fans ahead of Sunday’s clash. The days leading up to the game, talk focused less on what was broken with the offense or defense, and more about how exciting it would be to see Peterson in an Arizona uniform. To be fair, Peterson did not disappoint on Sunday, running rampant against the Buccaneers defense. The Cardinals offense found balance for the first time all season on Sunday. Peterson carried the football 26 times and finished with 134 yards and two touchdowns. The running back needed just one game in a Cardinals uniform to become the team’s leading rusher this season in addition to becoming the team leader in rushing touchdowns and longest run. Keep in mind that this was the sixth game for the Cardinals.
Peterson broke out quickly against a normally tough Tampa Bay defense. Peterson ran hard and ran angry, often requiring multiple defenders to bring him to the ground. The Cardinals utilized multiple tight end sets, often motioning a tight end to overload one side of the line. One play the Cardinals used multiple times was the “Power O” with a guard and tight end pulling over to the other end to create a hole and seal off the second level of the defense. The return of left tackle D.J. Humphries and left guard Alex Boone provided enough bulk on the left side to do some damage. On both of Peterson’s touchdowns, the Cardinals chose to run behind the left side of the line, with Peterson often going untouched the initial few yards after the hand off. The Cardinals have something interesting moving forward with Peterson. It will be important to replicate the success to keep winning.

Carson Palmer Nearly Flawless

One thing that a dominating run game can do is take away pressure from the quarterback to make big plays. Carson Palmer has been begging for some help on offense and Peterson’s fantastic debut allowed the quarterback to have a clean pocket and clearer throwing lanes downfield. Palmer was perfect in the first quarter, completing his first 14 passes, and finishing the day with an 81.8 percent completion rate. The Cardinals passing game benefitted from Tampa’s inability to stop the run. The defense was forced to add an extra defender into the box, often leaving single coverage on the outside and a run-focused linebacker on an athletic tight end. As a result, Palmer threw three touchdowns, all to open receivers.
The offensive line allowed less pressure on Sunday, giving up two sacks, buoyed by play action and multiple blocker sets. That protection gave Palmer the time needed to pick out his receivers, as exhibited by his completion percentage. This is the Palmer who made the Cardinals title contenders in 2015. This is the Palmer that the Bengals saw coming out of USC as the first overall pick. The main benefactor of a clean Palmer was Larry Fitzgerald. The veteran receiver found single coverage for most of the game and took advantage to a tune of ten receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown. Fitzgerald had a long of 29 yards and ran wild on the Tampa secondary. On Sunday, the passing game was crisp and dangerous, with Palmer leading the way and Larry Fitzgerald playing the star.
