Latimer has to become more of a weapon offensively. He does a lot of things that don’t necessarily show up on stat sheets: blocking on special teams,New York Giants Jerseys special-teams coverage, blocking in running game. But he wasn’t drafted for that role. He should be the third receiver right now, making this an important summer to step forward to hold off Bennie Fowler,SGreen Bay Packers Jerseys Jordan Norwood and possibly Jordan Taylor.
Until they get into pads and play exhibition games, any conclusion drawn is risky. They will miss Danny Trevathan, who led the team in tackles last season,Carolina Panthers Jerseys and Malik Jackson, who was unique in his versatility and brought a nastiness to the defense. Davis continues to impress, doing everything to win the job in Brandon Marshall’s spot as Marshall has moved to Trevathan’s position. Davis is bright,New England Patriots Jersey diligent. As several players have told me without prompting, “He gets it.” The guy has a film room in his house with a whiteboard to dissect plays to allow him to play faster. Will he be Trevathan?Seahawks Store I don’t know. I know he has a chance to be really good. Crick will share the defensive end spot with Vance Walker. Crick is coming off a unimpressive season but has played well in Wade Phillips’ scheme in the past. The key,Earl Thomas III Jersey in my opinion, is Walker. Can he step forward with a five-sack season while also supporting the run?
I love your thinking. But those types of color-coded fan participation play better in basketball than football.Senquez Golson Jersey I love the orange. It’s what makes the Broncos stick out in every way. Shirt giveaways make more sense for teams that play tons of games — as in baseball and basketball — and need to entice fans into the tent. The Broncos have sold out every game for decades. The love for the team is organic and passionate.William Jackson Jersey It’s passed down from generations. I like the shirt concept in broader terms, but for me there’s enough orange splashed naturally throughout to avoid forcing the issue.
The quarterbacks have all had their moments. Mark Sanchez looks like a veteran.Carson Palmer Jersey And he didn’t play in this offense last season. He did play in it at USC, which has helped. He had a strong day on Tuesday and for my money is the slight leader. However, this is a competition. Trevor Siemian continues to impress teammates with his knowledge of offense and his strong arm. Paxton Lynch has shown remarkable ability to throw on the run left or right. His physical gifts are real. But he faces a steep learning curve going from a college-spread offense.
