Chicago Bears: Getting Nagy with It

Ha! You thought this was going to be about Mitchell Trubisky, didn’t you?

Well, it is. Sort of.where can i buy cheap nfl jerseys online

Many are predicting a big second-year jump from Trubisky in 2018, in large part because of the arrival of offensive-minded head coach Matt Nagy.

Nagy preached patience regarding the switch while speaking with JJ Stankevitz of NBC Sports Chicago, saying that “in Kansas City it took us five years to get to that point that we got to.” He continued: “We’re kind of at a pace right now where we have to at times pull back and say to yourself we’re months into this thing, not years.”

But Nagy also said he’s been pleased with what he’s seen from Trubisky in OTAs.nfl apparel

“Coach (Vic) Fangio and his guys are doing a good job of mixing different coverages and disguising different looks, so for Mitchell to be able to see those looks on tape, he’s building his own library right now within this offense,” cheap nfl apparel Nagy said. “We don’t have to watch Kansas City’s offense anymore. We’re building our library now and he’s able to see how it works against our defense right now and try not to make those mistakes and make the correct adjustments.”

There’s a new offensive scheme. And new targets for Trubisky in wide receivers Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller and tight end Trey Burton.

If Trubisky takes to the changes quickly, the Bears could be a tough(er) out in 2018.nfl apparel for men

To say that John Ross had a disappointing rookie season is an understatement. In three games (including one start), Ross was targeted all of twice. He had zero receptions and one rush for 12 yards.

Not exactly what the Cincinnati Bengals hoped for when they drafted the scouting combine record-holder in the 40-yard dash ninth overall a year ago.

Ross missed much of camp after shoulder surgery. By the time the season was over, he had surgery on his other shoulder and battled a knee sprain. Head coach Marvin Lewis groused publicly that Ross had “let the team down.” As Ross told ESPN’s Katherine Terrell, everything that could go wrong in 2017 did.

“Last year, I was just down, not being able to run full speed, not being able to do everything in the weight room,” Ross said. “Not to have excuses or anything, but I honestly just wasn’t physically or mentally ready for what I got myself into. There was so much going on.”discount nfl apparel

However, Ross is healthy in 2018 and participating fully in OTAs, and while the team is keeping a tight lid on news from the practice field, some positive tidbits have leaked out regarding the speedy wideout.

Terrell tweeted that Ross has looked good nfl apparel for women in the practices she had access to, adding the “biggest thing for Ross is he’s getting the reps he needs.”

Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans

This ranking may turn a few heads.

After all, Deshaun Watson only played in seven games (and start six) for the Houston Texans as a rookie before an ACL tear in practice ended his year.

But man, what a seven-game stretch it was.cheap nike nfl jerseys from china

Watson was positively electric from the moment he stepped into the huddle, consistently using his athleticism and escapability to buy time before finding open receivers down the field. Over those first seven games as a pro, Watson tossed 19 touchdown passes—in that regard, it’s the most prolific debut from a quarterback in league history.

Texans head coach Bill O’Brien told John McClain of the Houston Chronicle he’s confident Watson can stay healthy moving forward, in part because he knows when to say when.

“That’s one thing I think Deshaun’s really good at,” O’Brien said. “We practice that. We talked to him about that. But he has a really good instinct for maybe gaining the five or six yards and then going down before he takes the shot.nfl cheap nike jerseys

“That’s a big thing that young quarterbacks usually have a problem with. He seems to have an instinct for being able to stay out of harm’s way.”

Provided O’Brien is right, the sky is the limit for the 22-year-old in his sophomore season.490a7c484f2044158ec8529cda02804a_crop_exact

The 2017 season is one Dallas Cowboys tailback Ezekiel Elliott would probably just as soon forget. One year after leading the National Football League with 1,631 yards on the ground, Elliott spent six games of his sophomore season on the shelf because of a suspension.cheap official nike nfl jerseys

As a result, Elliott failed to rush for 1,000 yards—and the Cowboys failed to make the playoffs.

It was a disaster. In retrospect, Elliott and the Cowboys would have been better off just serving the suspension to open the season instead of having the never-ending legal struggle hanging over the team for almost the entire year.

That’s all in the past now.

And the future brings with it a great chance for a rebound season.

Even amid the constant distractions last year, Elliott’s per-touch numbers remained solid. He’ll be back to his status as the focal point of the Cowboys offense in 2018. And while there were character concerns last year, no one is questioning Elliott’s ability to bang away between the tackles or wear a defense down.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap

Cleveland Browns Take Courtland Sutton at No. 35

SMU’s Courtland Sutton was one of college football’s most prolific receivers over the last two seasons, amassing 2,331 yards and 22 touchdowns. He has tremendous size (6’3″, 218 lbs) and enough strength to win on 50-50 balls. Miller recently labeled Sutton this year’s nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap best boundary receiver and the receiver prospect with the best potential.

Would such a receiver fall out of the first round in today’s pass-driven era? Given the recent struggles of first-round receivers, it’s certainly possible.18ec3baeaf7b5edcc4bc388a28576466_crop_exact

In 2016 and 2017, seven wide receivers—Corey Coleman, Will Fuller, Josh Doctson, Laquon Treadwell, Corey Davis, Mike Williams and John Ross—were drafted in the first round. They combined for just 1,900 yards receiving last season. That’s an average of 271.4 yards per player.

Teams may be wary of taking a wideout in Round 1—though Alabama’s Calvin Ridley should go in the first 32 picks.

The Browns, who traded for wideout Jarvis Landry this offseason, scoop up Sutton with the 35th pick. He’d be a good fit alongside Landry and across the field from Josh Gordon.

The surprise is that Sutton lasts until Round 2 and the Browns don’t even draft him with their first second-round pick (where they’ll be focused on an offensive tackle).nike cheap nfl jerseys

“The reintegration is more difficult than people believe, especially defensively,”nike nfl cheap jerseys  said one playoff-bound Western Conference GM. “When major players are out, sometimes it’s difficult to re-establish a rhythm.”

An Eastern Conference scout added that he is skeptical the Warriors’ bench is as good as it has been in the past, and that could prove to be a critical difference as well with so many stars ailing.

“I do think they may be in trouble even if Steph makes it back,” the scout said. “They seem to have lost some bench depth (Indeed, the offensive efficiency of that unit has dipped a bit from last season). They’ve struggled at various times during the nfl nike jerseys cheap china season and not just recently.” To that end, the Warriors have already lost almost as many games this season as they did in the last two combined, including seven of their last 10 games, including a pair of back-to-backs.08c249d034b1817ede7840f9adcd9bed_crop_exactnike jerseys nfl cheap

The long-term concern regarding Curry is that this isn’t his first bout with injury. Ankle issues limited him to 26 appearances in his third season, and two years ago he sustained a sprained knee ligament in Game 4 of their first-round series against the Rockets. That was a Grade 1 sprain in his right knee—the current one is Grade 2 in his left—and the Warriors were on their way to a 3-1 lead in the series when it happened. His struggles in the Finals (where he shot 40.3 percent in the series after shooting 50.4 percent in the regular season) played a role in the team falling short in its back-to-back title bid.cheap official nike nfl jerseys

Other than that, as Curry has noted, he has been fairly durable. But for a player who isn’t overpowering from a pure physical sense and creates the air space for his shots with slippery-quick lateral agility, he can ill afford to be physically compromised in any way. Especially cheap nike nfl jerseys from china now that he’s in the first year of a five-year, $201 million contract.
