Womens Peyton Manning Jersey
« on: September 19, 2019, 03:32:28 AM »
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ? Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri felt fine during last weekend?s game at Los Angeles. Long snapper Luke Rhodes thought everything went off without a hitch Womens Peyton Manning Jersey , too.Then the NFL?s career scoring leader inexplicably missed three kicks, and the 24-year veteran long dubbed the best clutch kicker in league history started fielding questions about what went wrong in the Colts? overtime loss. On Thursday, the questions were back.?Unfortunately, if you play long enough you?re going to have a lousy game every once and a while,? Vinatieri said. ?One day you?re off, and you come back and figure out how to kick ?em straighter.?Sounds like a simple solution to, perhaps, the worst game of his career.But those bad days have been rare for the NFL?s career scoring leader. Never before had Vinatieri missed two field goals and an extra point in the same game ? two to the left, one to the right ? and it marked only the fourth time in his career he missed a field goal inside 30 yards.Naturally, Vinatieri blamed himself.?I just didn?t kick well,? he said. ?There were a few things that didn?t go our way but the majority of them were my lousy kicking, so I totally let them down.?It didn?t take long for others to start contemplating whether father time had finally caught up to Vinatieri, the league?s oldest player now at age 46.He sat out part of the preseason with tendinitis in his left knee. He finished last season by missing two extra points and a field goal in the Colts? final three games after contending with a lingering groin injury. Then came the performance nobody saw coming on a bright, sunny southern California day.?He was the same old, Adam Cheap Nate Hairston Youth Jersey ,? Rhodes said. ?We had great warmups and stuff, he was extremely confident. But he?s done it so long, I know he?ll jump right back.?If stats are any indication, Rhodes could be right.Vinatieri?s field-goal percentages have hovered in the 80s or 90s for seven straight years and he?s produced eight of his 12 best single seasons since 2010. He?s missed just 19 extra points in the NFL, nine coming since the league voted to move line of scrimmage for the attempt from the 2-yard line to the 15.Here, in this locker room, everybody roots for Vinatieri.?He?s a great guy, his mindset is the same as mine,? 24-year-old All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard said. ?He loves the game, he loves being in this locker room, and you can tell. He doesn?t just go to meetings and things, he?s in here with us.?The players and coaches also understand Vinatieri didn?t win four Super Bowl rings, make two Super Bowl-winning kicks and two other memorable kicks in the snow at New England, or pass Hall of Famer Morten Anderson for the scoring and field goals titles without overcoming a little adversity.Vinatieri couldn?t bring down Desmond Howard or Devin Hester on their kickoff returns for touchdowns in the Super Bowl. Vinatieri finished the 2009 season on injured reserve after having surgery on his right knee, When the Patriots let him walk away in free agency following the 2005 season Womens Pierre Desir 2019 Jersey , he landed in Indianapolis? domed-stadium where he?s now scored a franchise record 1,446 points and became the first player in league history to top 1,000 points with two teams.There was even that time, a month into his rookie season, when Vinatieri needed to make a 40-yard field goal in the wind and rain against Jacksonville to keep his job.He made it look as easy then, as coach Frank Reich expects this weekend at Tennessee (1-0), without Vinatieri?s personal stakes being so high.?I have watched him in pregame, I have seen him every day in practice. (I have) no concerns that there is any deteriorating of anything physically, and certainly not mentally,? Reich said Monday. ?This guy is the toughest mental athlete I have ever been around.?All he has to do is prove that one more time for the Colts (0-1).?I think every single day, every person is playing for their job,? Vinatieri said.Stampede Blue fantasy football opening weekend draft notes This year, I?ve been tasked with commissioning all of the Stampede Blue fantasy football leagues and I also have several leagues I?m in with my friends, so just like every other year, I keep saying ?I?m going to cut back on fantasy football.? So much for that.As of today Youth Jacoby Brissett Jersey , I?ll have completed four PPR drafts that ?matter? and have done 10 other ?practice drafts?. I refuse to do mock drafts because too often it?s just me and ESPN?s random rankings going at it because everyone leaves after Round 4. One of the drafts was the Stampede Blue Champions League (all team owners are former champions as the name implies), I had a couples league draft Saturday as well, Monday night I had one of our free leagues complete its draft, and last night Stampede Blue staff had its draft. I also have another six leagues to draft between now and September 5th. That puts me about 20 actual drafts I?ll do this year.I think I?ve got some good information from a variety of experiences here to share that may shed some light on how your drafts are going to go.First, most of the people you are drafting with do not use anything but the default rankings and largely have no idea what they?re doing even if you try to help them by literally putting all the information in front of them and show them how to do it. Even people who pay to draft tend to not care about data. In fact, my friend?s wife took Zach Ertz 5th overall and my best friend?s wife drafted Saquon Barkley because she likes the way his butt looks in football pants. I don?t have an argument against that pick, but Ertz in the first! Come on!Let?s talk picks!First, Saturday evening, I had an 8-man PPR draft that I hosted with 3 other couples and randomly, my wife and I got 1st and 2nd pick (not a rigged game at all, nothing to see here!). I chose Todd Gurley because I?m a sensible human, and then my wife took Julio Jones 2nd overall and blew the draft wide open. For perspective, the first round picks were:Todd GurleyJulio JonesLe?Veon BellAntonio BrownZach ErtzSaquon BarkleyDavid JohnsonEzekiel ElliottIt?s pretty evident from the first round that only about 3鈦? of the people in this league have any inkling as to what they?re doing, and the rest of us are just pretending. Rules were broken, right? Don?t draft a TE early. Running backs are scarce so you should invest your early picks in solidifying that position. Oh Jacoby Brissett Jersey Stitched , you don?t know what half those words mean? Nevermind. As long as you have fun, right!?In case you?re wondering how that draft went for me, I had the bookend picks (last pick Round 2, first pick Round 3) and wound up going Leonard Fournette into Michael Thomas. I?d say there?s one other good team in this league. I?m feeling good about it.Moving along.Later Saturday night, I had another draft. This time, I was drafting with a different group than most people will ever play against. I?d say this was my most complicated draft because each member of this league is last year?s league champion from a different league Stampede Blue hosts. This was a 12-person PPR draft with zero auto-drafters and it took place after I?d already drafted that day. I had the 9th overall pick. Here?s the first round of picks.Todd GurleyLe?Veon BellDavid JohnsonEzekiel ElliottAntonio BrownSaquon BarkleyAlvin KamaraDeAndre HopkinsOdell Beckham, Jr.Melvin GordonKareem HuntJulio JonesNothing to see here in terms of the players drafted here. I?m happy to grab Odell 9th ? especially since he just signed that monster contract ? we all know he?s going to ball out. This draft was unique for me, because the other drafters ate away at the running back depth early and often, forcing us to go WR/WR/WR in the first three rounds instead of reaching for a running back. We wound up with OBJ, Keenan Allen and Doug Baldwin fell to us at 33rd (ADP 26).Again, sitting pretty.Last night, Stampede Blue had its staff PPR draft. We wound up with the last pick in the round (not bad!) in a 10-man draft.Here is the first round:Todd GurleyLe?Veon BellDavid JohnsonEzekiel ElliottAntonio BrownSaquon BarkleyKareem HuntDeAndre HopkinsAlvin KamaraOdell Beckham Jr.This was a perfect round. I like every pick but the Hunt pick (ADP 13 and he goes #8?) That?s essentially giving up a wheeled pick. We got OBJ again for value (ADP 9). We took Melvin Gordon with the 11th pick and went WR/RB every round except when we took Kirk Cousins 70th (ADP 76, so not much of a reach, just projected about 20 more points than whoever was behind him in the rankings.) Yahoo?s draft app crashed (it has crashed between rounds 12-14 in each of the 3 drafts I?ve done so far this year) and I?m assuming it?s a Java timeout issue? I don?t nerd that hard, but you get what I?m saying.I?m going to reiterate the same things I?ve been saying all along the way Malik Hooker Jersey White , but with some new advice.Edit your pre-draft rankings. Most people don?t and the default rankings are trash beyond the first few rounds!Don?t draft a QB, TE, K or D/ST early (in the first 7 rounds) if you can help it. You can help it! I know you know more players than that. Also, JAX had the easiest strength of schedule in the league defensively last season, which made it look good and a lot of people are investing early picks on them. I see you taking JAX 63rd overall (ADP 189!). You?re gonna be really let down when that defense gets roughed up this season. Go Colts!Don?t draft multiple QBs or TEs. You are wasting roster spots. There?s math for this. See, your #5-6 WR/RB is going to play for you because of injuries. You are going to end up dropping that QB or TE for a WR/RB and you will lose your league (YOU WILL NOT WIN YOUR LEAGUE) if your roster has multiple QB/TE or D/ST/K. I?m not pointing fingers. I?m just telling you the truth. Last year I won ~65% of my leagues and never fielded multiple D/ST/K/TE/QB in a winning league (I have experimented with fielding multiple of those positions to no avail). Show me ONE credible fantasy expert that advocates for multiple of those positions (and does it successfully). THEY DON?T EXIST. You aren?t a trailblazer. You?re in 4th place at the end of every season because you were ONE PLAYER SHORT. It?s never the TE/QB deficiency that beats you (there isn?t a significant point difference between the 8-10th and 10-12th ranked QB/TE over a season). Why field them?Again, have fun and enjoy yourself. Use all the free information out there to help you have an easier time making decisions during your draft.I?d tell you all to follow me on Twitter, but I?m not a robot and I have opinions of my own that some of you may not like, so let?s just chat in the comments and go from there.Now show me your fantasy football rosters from drafts you?ve done. Comment with # of players in league, what pick you were, scoring type, etc. Or don?t.
