|titreBray had a chance for redemption |
Road To The 2013 NFL Draft: Georgia 51 - Tennessee 44
The scouting process for the draft runs primarily from September through mid- April. The athletic testing portion of the evaluation process takes center stage starting in February. However, how NFL draft prospects perform in actual football games is what matters most. Here is a closer look at some of the notable prospects in the Georgia- Tennessee contest and their impact on the outcome:
QB Tyler Bray, Tennessee, Junior: Statistics can be misleading in sports. This is especially true when evaluating quarterback play. Bray had a decent game against Georgia (24 completions in 45 attempts (53%), 281 yards (6.2 yards per attempt), 2 touchdowns (would have had a 3rd, but his receiver dropped a well-thrown deep ball), 3 interceptions (the last was a desperation pass on the final play of the game) and 1 fumble), but turned the ball over repeatedly when Tennessee needed him to make plays in the 2nd half. The Tennessee quarterback has the arm strength and quick release to make every NFL throw. Bray also throws a pretty deep ball with a fine combination of power and touch. However,The first P of marketing is ' product'. Your product here is the cheap nba jerseys No doubt it's a slightly unique product but with the number of entrant in this product there is hardly any uniqueness now his footwork and release point can be erratic and results in inconsistent accuracy. He missed Justin Hunter on crossing routes a couple of times on passes he just has to complete. The protection was fine and Hunter was open. It should have been pitch-and-catch, but it wasn't.
Bray's 2nd interception of the game was a killer for the Vols. Tennessee was down by only 7 points early in the 4th quarter. The Vols are driving and are able to run the ball on Georgia. Bray tries to make a back shoulder throw from midfield. It would have been a good intermediate completion and kept the potential game-tying drive going. The problem was Bray's pass was poorly thrown and enabled the Georgia cornerback to have a better shot at the ball than his receiver. The back-shoulder pass was thrown too far to the inside and the Georgia defensive back was able to make the interception.
Bray had a chance for redemption when Tennessee got the ball back with just under 2 minutes to go and still down by 7. The Vols made it to the Bulldogs 28-yard line before Bray stepped up in the pocket and was stripped of the ball for a huge turnover. How a quarterback plays at crunch-time is what separates them. Bray had his opportunities and threw or fumbled them away. His protection was good throughout the game and Tennessee had success running the ball. The Georgia game hopefully will fuel him to get better. His accuracy, timing, decision-making and mental toughness are all areas that need improvement. Bray has the arm, release and height that NFL teams look for in a quarterback. However, he looked like a prospect that could use another year of experience to become stronger and a more polished passer before entering the NFL.
WR Justin Hunter, Tennessee,baseball jerseys Junior: The talented wide receiver played better than his pedestrian statistics (3 receptions for 46 yards (15.3 per)) indicate. Hunter was open twice over the middle for potential good gains, but his quarterback was off-target. Hunter is still recovering from ACL surgery performed last season, but he comes out of his breaks well. He did a good job in preventing an interception when Tyler Bray forced a pass to him in the 2nd quarter. Hunter runs the slant well and at six foot four is a big target. Georgia did not press him or be very physical with him. Hunter needs to gain some size and strength to better handle NFL cornerbacks.
G Dallas Thomas, Tennessee,Of course the result is a less durable but cheap football jerseys These are often found to be preferable to buyers from the US. Senior: Tennessee rushed for 197 yards on 40 carries (4.9 per) and scored three times. Thomas was solid at left guard and helped open holes for the running game. He seemed to gain strength as the game wore on. Thomas has a solid punch and played with leverage. He did not look stiff and showed some pop in his hips.mlb jerseys for sale The former left tackle can move his feet and slide in pass protection.
QB Aaron Murray, Georgia, Junior: The Bulldogs' quarterback was in total control and carved up the Tennessee defense. Murray completed 20 passes in 26 attempts (77%) for 286 yards (11 yards per attempt) with 2 touchdown passes and 1 interception. Murray's interception was the result of a tipped pass at the line of scrimmage and a fine defensive play. Murray threw the back shoulder fade on time and in the right spot. He also read the blitz well and got rid of the football quickly. Murray spread the ball around and utilized his tight end well. The two-year starter's biggest mistake in this game was when he let Tennessee strip him of the ball after a sack deep in his own territory. Murray consistently hit receivers in stride and was on top of his short-to-intermediate passing game. He lacks impressive physical tools, but his throwing mechanics and footwork are consistent and fundamentally sound. Murray will face stouter defenses down the road and it will be interesting to see how well he plays.
OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia, Junior: Jones uncharacteristically had a quiet 8 tackles and half a tackle for loss. Tennessee's offensive tackles did a good job of containing his outside rush. Jones was unable to counter to free himself. He will need to add variety to his arsenal to give the more athletic offensive tackles he faces something else to defend. His hustle resulted in a few run stops, but he did not make his defensive presence felt in this game.
DT John Jenkins, Georgia, Senior: Tennessee gained a bunch of yards running the ball between the tackles. Jenkins looked sluggish and came off the ball without much explosion. His main contribution was the recovery of Tyler Bray's 4th quarter fumble. Jenkins finished the game with one tackle. He showed limited range and marginal instincts to anticipate plays. Tennessee was able to move him in the direction they wanted and holes were opened,Cheap Nike Nfl Jerseys

Philadelphia 76ers: A Richer Future With J-Rich
Would you believe that the fifth, first-round pick in the 2001 draft really wanted to play professional hockey in the NHL?
Jason Richardson's childhood dream was to become the fourth African-American player to play in the NHL because at that time,Youth Nfl Jerseysnfl custom jerseys there were only two or three in the league. His mother gave him a pair of skates for one Christmas and he just learned how to skate by going to the local rinks or on nearby frozen ponds. He even shaved and curved a wooden stick to use as he played on the ice.
The required speed, passing of the puck and the "accidental" contacts were very much appealing to him. He was a very good hockey player growing up, but his dreams fell short because, by the 8th grade, he couldn't find any skates that would fit him.
It's a good thing that he ended up playing basketball instead.nba jerseys sale His uncles had taught him the necessary disciplines that allowed him to take his game up a notch, separating him from the rest of his class. From being Mr. Basketball in Michigan (1989-99) to being selected as a part of McDonald's All-American Team, J-Rich has really gone a long way from his skating days.
He is now poised to contribute as one of the anticipated premiere scorers for the Philadelphia 76ers, as the team seeks to improve their standings up against the leagues' elite. Richardson admits that this year's roster has potential,The first P of marketing is ' product'. Your product here is the cheap nba jerseys No doubt it's a slightly unique product but with the number of entrant in this product there is hardly any uniqueness now especially with the addition of a potential franchise player, Andrew Bynum.
With Drew at the 5 spot, he will be able to draw in the double team and leave him wide-open for a three-pointer or for a short distance jumper. This is what J-Rich has done throughout his entire career - drain the three. Ranked 15th all-time in three pointers made (1520) and with two back-to-back slam dunk championships (2002 and 2003) in his trophy case, it will really bring a whole new dynamic to the 76ers basketball.
We'll just have to wait and see if this new chemistry will be productive or not.Good Jersey Wholesale Until then, 76ers fans have something to be excited about because who can forget about his dunk in the '04 contest that would have sent him in the record books for the three-peat (now a record held by Nate Robinson) - that self-alley-oop, under the leg, one hand slam? Although father time may have caught up with him, he still has some jump left in his shoes and can easily fill in the lane with big-man Drew drawing in the defense.

Rules for New Youth Football Coaches
The first thing you as a youth football coach have to realize is no matter how much you know about the game, it is how much you, as their coach get your players to know. You as their coach must teach the football team what it needs to know to carry out the game plan. If the players don't know their assignments it falls to you as their coach that you didn't prepare them properly. As a coach for a youth football team you need to find a way to relate what you need them to know in a way that they can understand. The number one thing that you as their football coach need to have is patience. If you expect to see the play executed in the game then you will need to see it on the practice field not just once or twice but over and over again.
I can not stress enough how important teaching fundamentals is to your youth football team. It is the first thing you must teach your youth football team. Every player on your team needs to know how to block and tackle regardless of their position. Learn fun drills for your team and practice them till they know what they are doing.
It is amazing how many teams do not practice the first thing you do in a game, snapping the ball. Let me say that again, snapping the ball,Nfl Throwback Jerseys this is very important, the faster the QB can step away from the center,wholesale mlb jerseys the faster the play will develop. Practice handing the ball off from the QB to the running backs. Make sure this done over and over till there are no problems, practice holding onto the ball to minimize turnovers on offense.Wholesale Nike Nfl Jerseys As a football coach I know there is nothing that can make you more upset then seeing your players fumbling the ball over and over.
On defense make sure your players know what they are doing. Drill your defensive ends so they know they are to contain. This is one of the biggest problems coaching young football players.Youth Nfl Jerseys Make sure each player know what is expected of them at each position. They need to know there assignments and that is your job as there coach. Remember what I said in the beginning of this article, it falls on you as there coach to teach them properly.
Above all else ALWAYS place the safety of your players first.cheap youth jerseys These are just a few rules for you new youth football coaches to use when getting your football team ready for the new season.

Watching the NFL versus the MLB
Imagine placing two flat screen plasma TV's side by side in your living room smack dab in front of your couch. You've got beer, snacks a-plenty and fresh batteries in your clicker.
One TV has an NFL game on and the other has a Major League Baseball game and they both start at the same time.
Besides this being many sports fans' idea of hog heaven and even better than clicking back and forth between games with only one TV, it's fun to watch the differences between these two pro sports. Watching the NFL on TV is a weekly ritual; baseball is on every night of the week, but watching the two combined is almost as rewarding as joining a Cowboy cheerleader snuggle-fest.
And that's exactly what I did recently (not the snuggle-fest, but the two TV's thing). Here's what happened:
The football game started with a massive kick to the opposing team, and a line of 250-pound plus men with murder in their eyes started charging after the poor slob who caught the ball. After a few seconds he was crushed by his pursuers, becoming the bottom man in a very scary adult male pig-pile.Wholesale mlb jerseys MLB players tend to be a little mellower and less physical, but all pro players in any sport need to be strong. Football players take steroids, baseball players get caught.
Meanwhile, the MLB game started off a little less exciting. My heart rate and pulse began to slow down as I watched the catcher and pitcher play catch as the batter just stood there spitting and adjusting his crotch. I got quickly bored and turned back to the NFL game.
In a matter of a three minute span two men had been injured, with one having his ankle relocated to his armpit. A touchdown was scored, the ball changed hands twice, and a whole lot of tackling, smashing, crunching and finger-breaking happened.
Football is more of an immediate gratification, ADD-friendly game to watch.
I glanced back at the MLB game for a couple of minutes. Two strikeouts and four fly outs came and went and we were already in the second inning, with little action to show for it. A baseball game is more of a wise-old-man kind of sport, where patience and number-crunching are paramount. It reveres serenity.
Football reveres mayhem. Watching football gets me angry and all charged up. Watching baseball makes me sleepy. In fact, I usually like to watch the first two or three innings, fall asleep, and then wake up to catch the last few innings. Watching football players hit each other full force and light each other up is exciting, and dozing is out of the question. Watching one grown man with ball in glove chase another grown man to tag him in a pickle is kind of funny.
As 10,000 commercials played on the football TV, I had a few minutes to catch up on my MLB game. Finally, in the bottom of the third, a man hit the ball and dropped it in the right field gap for a single. All the baseball players, including the guy running up to first base, seemed quite pleasant. Why not be? They were playing in a nice park, on a nice warm and sunny day and no one had even broken a sweat yet. The batter reached first base and started chatting with the opposing team's first baseman. They started smiling and having a great time with each other. My lip- reading skills are not what they used to be but I think I saw one say to the other, "Hi Johnny! How's the wife doing? It's been a while since we saw her. We've got to get together sometime soon."
Growing restless, I turned back to the NFL game just in time to see one man standing over a writhing and groaning man on the turf. I think I saw his lips yelling, "Hey Bruno, while we were having breakfast together this morning, your wife told me to tackle you into next Tuesday, did I do a good job?"
In the very next play a running back was nailed in a bone- splitting tackle. Indeed, his bone did split, and then protruded right out of his bloody skin causing a wave of nausea to spread over the crowd.
Fascinated but horrified, I quickly turned to the baseball game and witnessed a wild pitch hit the batter on the finger. The batter yelped and had to sit the rest of the game out, his pinky was smarting.
To replace the bone-sticking-out-of-his-leg guy in the NFL game, a bulky player with flowing dreadlocks sticking out of his helmet started lumbering onto the field. He had a huge cast on his arm that looked like a big club. With the hand totally encased, forming a big bulbous weapon, he shook it as his opponents in defiance while possibly struggling to stick one particular finger up, and then reluctantly joined the huddle.
It was nearing the halftime and so many timeouts had been called that they seemed to have run out of commercials to play. So the cameras started scanning the crowd. It was a lot colder where this game was being held, and I could see people's breath. I also saw a guy in shorts and no shirt who had painted his skin from head to toe in his NFL team's colors. His head was shaved and also painted, and he was wearing a big pig's nose on his face.
As I briefly scanned the crowd on the other TV, I saw lots of people in button down, short sleeve shirts, baseball caps and gloves on,nhl jerseys for sale waiting expectantly for that ever-elusive foul ball.
The first half started to wind down in the NFL game, and I actively awaited gratuitous shots of hot cheerleaders. I was rewarded with lots of silly pompom waving and cleavage. I then happily turned back to the MLB game but only saw three heavy-set women shoving sausage dogs and peanuts in their mouths.
At halftime I got a chance to go to the bathroom and grab another cold beer and more snacks. There is never a big break in baseball, and every time I go to the bathroom while watching baseball I always miss the big play, which of course happened this time too.
My MLB game continued to plod along when I got back, inducing the unique ball-strike-out hypnotic state that only baseball can cause. I was about to doze off when I was jarred out of my trance by the flashy touchdown dance I saw on my other TV. The guy who just scored was moonwalking across the uprights while flapping his arms like wings.custom nike jerseys He then proceeded to do a magnificent swan dive which turned into a double summersault with a twist and finally landed perfectly on the field.
I then quickly caught the replay of the big baseball play I had just missed. Someone hit a grand slam, rounded the bases and was greeted by a big, warm, bouncing-in-unison group hug.
After a while, both games ended and I had experienced a full range of emotions.personalized baseball jerseysnfl football jerseys Both games are great to watch and if you can get past the roller coaster ride of stimulation, watching football and baseball simultaneously is a blast. I decided to keep both plasma TV's in front of the couch permanently
Finally, no football vs. baseball article could be complete without mentioning one of the masters of comedy and this subject, George Carlin. Here's a quote from Carlin's famous monologue that inspired this article:
"And finally, the objectives of the two games are completely different:
In football the object is for the quarterback, also known as the field general, to be on target with his aerial assault, riddling the defense by hitting his receivers with deadly accuracy in spite of the blitz, even if he has to use shotgun. With short bullet passes and long bombs, he marches his troops into enemy territory, balancing this aerial assault with a sustained ground attack that punches holes in the forward wall of the enemy's defensive line. In baseball the object is to go home! And to be safe! - I hope I'll be safe at home!"
