  The Patriots' dynasty was built from the ashes of Bill Belichick's failure with the
Posted by: aliciahuang - 02-05-2018, 07:34 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Bill Belichick's first game as a head coach in the summer of 1991, the boss wanted to see him. Art Modell, the owner of the Cleveland Browns, summoned Belichick and Ernie Accorsi, Accorsi would remember - just some trivial issue Modell wanted to discuss., the team's executive vice president,Womens Alex Smith Jersey, to his office. Nothing dire

Shortly after the meeting began, Modell's phone rang, told Accorsi to alert him when the call finally ended and just left., and he answered it. Belichick began to stir. He squirmed and nervously fiddled with his notebook. Minutes passed. Eventually he decided enough was enough, and Belichick closed his notebook

"If somebody is wasting his time,Womens Tyreek Hill Jersey, he has no use for it," said Rick Venturi, a former Browns assistant coach, unwilling to wait on anyone - even his boss.,Womens Justin Houston Jersey, and indeed that story was timeless Belichick: impatient, hyper-efficient

Long before the Super Bowls, with more championships than any other coach and on the verge of a sixth, the establishment of a dynasty alongside Tom Brady, the dry news conferences or the elevation of Belichick among football's legendary coaches (and,Womens Travis Kelce Jersey, beyond those greats), nearly obsessed with maximizing each second in a 24-hour day., he had the same personality: meticulous, unforgiving

Though not everything was the same, and anyone who suggests Belichick had a lifetime ticket on the legend track - and, there are many - is forgetting the hostile chants and the police cars and the stealth departures to flee from an angry Cleveland., five championships later

But first, even when he was just another 39-year-old man finding himself in a new job. Back then, yes, there were hints that Belichick would indeed become Belichick, he had no proven system beyond what he had studied under his father, a coach and mentor of some acclaim. "Do your job" wasn't yet a rallying cry of accountability or the title of documentaries; it was a crude state of mind that inspired some of Belichick's assistants and turned a few others against him., a scout, and experienced under Bill Parcells

"We were handcuffed - let's put it that way," said Gary Tranquill, he'd had enough of his stubborn boss and quit. "I didn't have any fun coaching there. It's as simple as that.", who coached the Browns' quarterbacks for three seasons before deciding, after Cleveland went 7-9 in 1993

Indeed, Accorsi would recall years later, the rewards - considering Cleveland endured losing seasons in four of Belichick's five seasons - rare., he occasionally fielded complaints from Browns staffers. The hours were long, the work thankless

Belichick was demanding and sarcastic, and Venturi said coaching was only part of his job description. Belichick demanded his coaches prepare for any scenario on the field, and he expected his assistants to "extend the day," as he often put it. That meant doing more than they might've been used to in other jobs, no matter how unlikely, to convene on Saturdays - ordinarily a light day of final prep - for a marathon review of how they'd defend and attack their opponent., and give a presentation on the best way to respond. They were assigned a dozen or so college players to scout and consider for the draft's late rounds, to watch film of game officials and unearth which crews called which penalties more or less often

Even when coaches scattered for summer vacation, they were subjected to the Belichick book club: some assignment," with the expectation Belichick would quiz them on its contents., such as coach Bill Walsh's "Finding the Winning Edge

"Everything to the 10th power, who'd coached nearly two decades of college and professional football before arriving in Cleveland. "I was reshaped in my coaching thinking in every aspect."," said Venturi

And in place of restful sleep and a peaceful existence and winning seasons, there was at least this: "When you went out on Sundays," Venturi said.,Authentic Alex Smith Jersey,  you always felt confident you weren't going to lose

But the Browns often did, and that engendered resentment. Tranquill, bristled that Belichick hired no offensive coordinator and insisted on calling plays despite having been a defensive coordinator under Parcells.,Womens Marcus Peters Jersey, a specialist on offense

Tranquill said Belichick simply called things he'd struggled to defend, and during one game when that wasn't working,Authentic Marcus Peters Jersey,that was his fault., Belichick gave up and surprised Tranquill by telling him he was in charge for the rest of the game - and if he was unprepared, well

"There was nobody on offense calling the shots," said Tranquill,Authentic Tyreek Hill Jersey, who had grown accustomed to demanding work environments during five seasons as Navy's head coach. "We would mash around things for hours, but sometimes that got old.", and then we'd have to go through him to make sure, and he'd say he doesn't want to do that - which is a head coach prerogative

So,Authentic Travis Kelce Jersey, who had chosen to lead the Browns instead of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, after a while, did the losing. When Accorsi hired Belichick, he told him a dramatic roster overhaul lay ahead. Sure enough,Authentic Spencer Ware Jersey," the clay figurine on "Saturday Night Live" whose intentions were good enough but whose hapless decisions often led to his maiming or being sawed in half., Authentic Justin Houston Jersey,Cleveland went 20-28 in Belichick's first three seasons, and by 1993 fans had begun referring to the coach as "Mr. Bill

The Columbus Dispatch referred to Belichick as a "clown" in 1993, and disgruntled fans marched on Berea, Ohio,Womens Spencer Ware Jersey, to protest the coach with signs that read "Waive Belichick." After Belichick released Bernie Kosar, the man who would become the greatest coach in history went home to the suburbs to find a police surveillance unit posted outside for his protection and went to work to find another cruiser stationed outside Browns headquarters., the Browns' popular quarterback, about 200 fans sneaked into the Municipal Stadium tunnel after a Cleveland loss to chant "Bill must go!" among other profane things. During the darkest times

"I'm not running for mayor," Belichick, and you can't make everybody happy.", not yet the mumbling and dismissive news conference figure seen today, told reporters then. "I'm running a football team

Belichick's Browns did win 11 games in 1994 to reach the playoffs, which loyalists point to as a hint at the coach's genius, a team that started 4-4 lost seven of its final eight games., but a year later Modell announced he was relocating his franchise to Baltimore; following the announcement

To cope, just to get out of Cleveland., Belichick occasionally scheduled his team to depart for road trips as early as Tuesday for a Sunday game

"It was so depressing to be in town," Venturi said, adding that by the end of that season it became an inevitability that Belichick and his staff would be fired. Modell - who died in 2012 - admitted as much, saying if his bid to move the team to Baltimore were approved, less intense coach; he tried to lure Don Shula out of retirement before ultimately replacing Belichick with Ted Marchibroda., he would start entirely fresh. Besides, he preferred a more genial

As for Belichick, he rejoined Parcells as secondary coach for the Patriots, had planned to vote against Cleveland's relocation but changed his mind on the day of the meeting and cast one of the deciding ballots supporting the franchise that would eventually become the Baltimore Ravens., with whom things just seem to have a way of working out. It was Patriots owner Robert Kraft who, in February 1996

Kraft observed Belichick while he was an assistant coach and recruited him to replace Pete Carroll as New England's coach in 2000. By then, Belichick's philosophy had evolved, his impatience and demanding nature had intensified., his on-camera persona had dried

Those things were different, shades of Cleveland. But Belichick had drafted a young quarterback named Brady the prior year, and despite entering the 2001 season with 60-to-1 odds of winning the Super Bowl, but his first season with the Patriots looked like little else had changed: New England went 5-11, they did exactly that by upsetting the heavily favored St. Louis Rams.

  Raiders QB Derek Carr lights up 2018 NFL Pro Bowl
Posted by: aliciahuang - 02-02-2018, 08:35 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

With just under four minutes left to go in the fourth quarter against the NFC and his team down 23-17, Carr had to throw the ball away on third-and-seven and the AFC’s coaching staff called a timeout with 3:01 left in regulation.

Carr then stepped into the pocket with rain falling down to hit Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry for 12 yards and a first-down conversion on fourth down for yet another outstanding clutch moment. That was followed by a check-down pass to Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt that was stopped for no gain by Falcons LB Deion Jones which brought the clock to the two-minute warning.

With two minutes left at the 28-yard line, Carr completed a pass into the red zone again on a slant route for nine yards to Hilton which was followed by an 18-yard touchdown strike up the seam to Walker.

Carr finished the game with a stat line of 11-of-15 completions for 115 yards, one touchdown against one interception with a quarterback rating of 89.6. Though he was in 2016 form with his comeback prowess, Walker won the Offensive MVP Award for the 2018 Pro Bowl with Miller winning it for the defense.

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce said on Wednesday that he got the news that quarterback Alex Smith is set to head to Washington in a trade the same way many others did on Tuesday night.

Kelce got the word via Twitter after his girlfriend said something was going on with the quarterback and his reaction to the news of the deal — which can’t be made official until March 14 — was that it will be “awkward” for a little while. Kelce also said that he’s looking forward to seeing what Patrick Mahomes can do in the offense.

“So it’s going to be awkward going into a huddle, like I said, with anybody but Alex,” Kelce said on the Rich Eisen Show. “He’s taken a lot of mental reps and a lot of notes from Alex on how this thing should be run. Alex ran it to an absolute T this past season and, everyone’s excited to see what [Mahomes] can do.”, but I know Pat is ready for the opportunity, obviously

Kelce said the “expectation is definitely high” for the 2017 first-round pick who will start putting his stamp on the offense when the offseason program gets underway in a few months.

 he confirmed in a news conference. That means all signs point to his being available in Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.,Authentic Kirk Cousins Jersey,Tight end Rob Gronkowski has cleared concussion protocol

"I would say (trainers) were more on the cautious side," Gronkowski said of his wait. "Got the word today that we were cleared,Authentic Jordan Reed Jersey, so I'm ready to roll. ... I'm a full go."

 which was the first of the week and the only for players to be in full pads. ,Gronkowski was a full participant in Thursday's practice after being listed as limited on Wendesday

Patriots coach Bill Belichick offered few details on Gronkowski's recovery.

 so however it goes,Authentic Jonathan Allen Jersey,"Those things are out of our control, it goes,Authentic Ryan Anderson Jersey," Belichick said, before adding that "hopefully he'll be ready to go."

Gronkowski suffered the injury in New England’s 24-21 victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game on Jan. 21 when safety Barry Church struck him during a broken up passing play.

Serving as quarterback Tom Brady’s top target,Womens Ryan Anderson Jersey, Gronkowski caught 69 passes for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in the regular season.

 but they have played their best football since being rejected by the Eagles early in their careers.,Womens Fabian Moreau Jersey,All three players look back on their experiences in Philadelphia differently

Lewis was drafted by Philadelphia in the fifth round in 2011 and played two seasons for them before he was traded to Cleveland. Amendola was among Philadelphia's final cuts in training camp in 2009. Chung started his career in New England, spent a forgettable year with the Eagles in 2013, then returned to the Patriots in 2014.

 he was released. He was signed up by the St. Louis Rams and stayed there for four seasons before signing a five-year contract with the Patriots in 2013.,Amendola has experienced people doubting his abilities since he entered the league as an undrafted free agent with Dallas in 2008. He signed with Philadelphia in 2009 after being cut by the Cowboys. But after eight months with the Eagles

 a gift from a friend.,This past Christmas he tweeted a picture of his framed No. 11 Eagles jersey

"It's in my pool room — hanging as daily motivation," Amendola said. "I've come a long way since getting the opportunity to play there. It obviously didn't work out, so I guess I take it as a learning experience and just realize how far I've come."

 but it didn't work out under then first-year coach Chip Kelly. Chung was back in New England the next season. The decision paid off with a Super Bowl ring last season.,Chung thought he was heading for a fresh start when he signed a three-year contract with Philadelphia in 2013

 Chung was coy about what he remembers about the experience.,As for that 2013 season

" Chung said.,"That'll be between me and those people

 he has learned to stay motivated.,Lewis said despite his success in New England winning a ring last season and leading the team this season in rushing yards (896) and rushing touchdowns (six)

" Lewis said.,"Never safe. You still gotta put the work in. You still gotta get an opportunity. That's what most of the guys in the league need — just an opportunity to compete

He said he's matured a lot since leaving Philly.

" Lewis said. "They try to tell you what they think you can do without even really knowing you. That's kind of what I went through. I just kind of keep battling and showing people what I can do.","People look at you and kind of characterize you

 Amendola and Chung have enjoyed their time in New England,Authentic Josh Norman Jersey,As much as Lewis, they aren't naive to how the Patriots deal with aging players. This past offseason the Patriots parted with LeGarrette Blount,Womens Josh Norman Jersey, who led the NFL with 18 regular-season rushing touchdowns in 2016. But he also had turned 30, long considered the age of decline for running backs.

Blount was vocal about his desire to stay in New England,Womens Kirk Cousins Jersey, but the Patriots signed Mike Gillislee. Blount took a one-year deal with the Eagles,Womens Jordan Reed Jersey, where he has had a good season and been a leader.

Amendola restructured his contract to remain with New England this season. With Julian Edelman out for the season with a knee injury, Amendola has stepped up, leading the team with 196 yards receiving and two touchdowns in the playoffs.

 he will also enter free agency this summer.,Womens Jonathan Allen Jersey,At 32

Lewis is in the second year of a two-year deal and becomes an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. Chung, who turns 31 this summer,Authentic Fabian Moreau Jersey, is signed through 2018.

 Chung joked that his future was linked to that of his coach.,Chung said he's always admired coach Bill Belichick's no-nonsense approach to football. When reports came out about Belichick possibly considering retirement

Lewis said he will have no regrets if this is his final season in New England.

"Just being here and learning what it takes to be a champion," Lewis said. "I think that's something I'll always remember, regardless of what happens. I'll just cherish my moments here."

The Patriots gave him — and Amendola and Chung — what they've always wanted: an opportunity.

"Nobody's really given me a chance, and these guys gave me a chance. So that definitely means a lot to me," Lewis said. "So I'll always just remember what I've learned here. And hopefully I'll still be here."

  Green Mountain football coach hired by Tennessee Titans
Posted by: aliciahuang - 02-02-2018, 08:20 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

packed and was on a plane to Nashville within a few days of being hired.,The deal happened so quick that Matt had met with the players

"It's a great opportunity for him," Green Mountain Athletic Director Autumn Sereno said., so we're so excited for him

Matt's father, was recently appointed the Defensive Coordinator for the Titans a couple days ago and his son Matt will help as a defensive assistant. Dean was previously a linebackers coach (2004-05) and defensive coordinator (2006-09) under Bill Belichick for the Patriots and most recently left the Baltimore Ravens under John Harbaugh starting in 2012 before retiring just News Years Day this year.,Authentic Jack Conklin Jersey, Dean Pees

 11 loses.,Matt will finally have the opportunity to work with his dad after playing under him at Kent State years ago. Matt coached the Rams for two seasons with an overall record of nine wins

The rain prompted some fans to leave Camping World Stadium and others to break out ponchos. It also caused players on both sidelines to scramble to protect cellphones.

 and dozens more could be seen using them on the sidelines early in the game. They shoved them in plastic bags as the rain started.,Authentic Kevin Dodd Jersey,Running back Mark Ingram and New Orleans teammate Cameron Jordan had their phones in hand during introductions

Carr made up for his mistake by completing a 12-yard pass to Jarvis Landry on a fourth-and-7 play in the waning minutes. He found Walker down the middle three plays later.

 and Miller was the defensive MVP.,Walker was voted the offensive MVP

The NFC looked like it would coast to a victory early as two Minnesota Vikings made big plays a week earlier than they wanted and a week later than they needed.

 and Harrison Smith returned an interception for a score as the NFC opened up a 20-3 lead at halftime.,Authentic Austin Johnson Jersey,Adam Thielen had a touchdown reception

They showed up a few days removed from a 38-7 drubbing at Philadelphia in the NFC championship game, the Eagles and New England will meet in the Super Bowl in Minneapolis next Sunday., which was essentially over by halftime. The Vikings had been trying to become the first to play the Super Bowl in their home stadium. Instead

The Vikings were forced to settle for good seats to the NFL's showcase event — and a trip to Orlando for their five Pro Bowl selections.

 catching seven passes for 70 yards.,Authentic Derrick Henry Jersey,Thielen and Smith provided two early highlights for the NFC. Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph also did his part

But the NFC failed to hold onto the big lead. Goff threw incomplete on two fourth-down passes late as Saints coach Sean Payton tried to keep drives alive and milk the clock.

 there was more two-hand touch than hard-nosed tackling.,The game had more defensive gems than usual. Still

Delanie Walker held the ball in the end zone and waited for his teammates to celebrate.

 right and even the bench.,Authentic Kevin Byard Jersey,They came from every direction: Left

The Tennessee Titans tight end caught two touchdown passes, and the AFC beat the NFC 24-23 in a rain-soaked Pro Bowl on Sunday., including an 18-yarder with 1:31 remaining 

Teammates mobbed him. Pittsburgh receiver Antonio Browns, Jacksonville cornerback Jalen Ramsey and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin were among those who left the sideline to congratulate Walker.,Womens Sean Taylor Jersey, Baltimore safety Eric Weddle

"That's as real as it gets in football, especially with money on the line."," Oakland quarterback Derek Carr said. "You always want to win

The winning team got $64, double the losing team's share.,000 each

"You've got guys on the sidelines saying,'" Carr said., 'I need that money

Arizona's Patrick Peterson had two interceptions. Minnesota's Harrison Smith returned a pick for a score. And two players took exception to one aggressive takedown. Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan and Oakland guard Kelechi Osemele had words for New Orleans defensive end Cameron Jordan after he drilled Indianapolis tight end Jack Doyle.

None of those plays compared to Miller's game-clinching strip-sack.

 crunch time,"I knew Von was going to do it," Broncos teammate Aqib Talib said. "When it's clutch time, and Von went and did what he does.", that's what he does. We needed a play

The AFC overcame a 17-point halftime deficit and four turnovers to win the annual all-star game.

The rain prompted some fans to leave Camping World Stadium and others to break out ponchos. It also caused players on both sidelines to scramble to protect cellphones.

Jordan, and dozens more could be seen using them on the sidelines early in the game. They shoved them in plastic bags as the rain started., New Orleans running back Mark Ingram and others had their phones in hand during introductions

 Kansas City's Alex Smith and Carr — threw interceptions. And Kansas City returner Tyreek Hill muffed a punt.,Each of the AFC quarterbacks — Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger

Carr made up for his mistake by completing a 12-yard pass to Miami's Jarvis Landry on a fourth-and-7 play in the waning minutes. He found Walker down the middle three plays later.

"He's a Super Bowl MVP and now a Pro Bowl MVP as well, the more people expect from you."," Talib said of Miller. "Another accolade for him. The more accolades you get

The NFC looked like it would coast to a victory early as two Minnesota Vikings made big plays a week earlier than they wanted  and a week later than they needed.

Adam Thielen had a touchdown reception on the opening drive, and Smith returned an interception 79 yards for a score as the NFC opened up a 20-3 lead at halftime.

But the NFC failed to hold onto the lead. Goff threw incomplete on two fourth-down passes late as Saints coach Sean Payton tried to keep drives alive and milk the clock.

 Coombs was promoted to Ohio State assistant defensive coordinator in June 2016. Before Ohio State,A prolific recruiter, he spent five seasons as an assistant at UC.

Coombs built his legend as head coach at Colerain High School, his alma mater. He led Colerain to the Ohio Division I playoffs 10 times in 16 years. The Cardinals reached the state semifinals five times and won the 2004 state title with a 15-0 mark.  Coombs had a 161-34 record as head coach at Colerain.

Coombs graduated from Colerain in 1979 and from the University of Dayton in 1983, and he has a master’s degree from Wright State University.

 which came a little more than a week after they interviewed him for their head coaching vacancy; Mike Vrabel won that job. It’s obviously disappointing news for the Rams,Womens Jack Conklin Jersey,The Titans announced the hiring of LaFleur on Tuesday, but Sean McVay is proud to have paved the way for two of his coaches to essentially get promotions after just one year.

 the Titans are getting an inexperienced coordinator who’s never called plays in the NFL. He’ll call them in Tennessee,Womens Kevin Dodd Jersey, but his best asset is the ability to develop quarterbacks. Having worked with Matt Ryan and Jared Goff,With LaFleur, that’s obvious. The Titans hope he can do the same with Marcus Mariota after the worst season of his young career.

We know what this hire means for the Titans,Womens Austin Johnson Jersey, Los Angeles won’t have an offensive coordinator in 2018. Instead, for starters, Aaron Kromer will be the run-game coordinator,Womens Derrick Henry Jersey, while Shane Waldron will be the pass-game coordinator. They were both promoted from within, going from offensive line and tight ends coaches,Womens Kevin Byard Jersey, but where does it leave the Rams? Well, respectively, to co-coordinators, so to speak.

 Goff is familiar with turnover on coaching staffs. It’s not an ideal situation,Authentic Sean Taylor Jersey,This will be the fourth straight year with a new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Goff. Going from UCLA to Jeff Fisher and the Rams in 2016 to Sean McVay this past season, but it’s the reality.

 but he’s going to lose that level of comfort with both guys coaching elsewhere in 2018. LaFleur, in particular,Goff thrived under the guidance of LaFleur and Olson, has a great track record of working with quarterbacks.

 his work with Goff this past season was well known,He helped develop Kirk Cousins and Robert Griffin III for starters in Washington before taking Matt Ryan’s game to a new level in Atlanta. Obviously, and it’s part of the reason he was named to the Pro Bowl for the first time.

 Goff will be instructed by quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor and pass-game coordinator Shane Waldron. Neither has a particularly decorated track record, but McVay feels strongly enough about them to hand them the keys to the offense,Now, in a sense.

 only because he didn’t call the plays. McVay is going to continue his creative play calling while getting Todd Gurley involved as much as he can. The offense shouldn’t take a step back without LaFleur in the mix,You shouldn’t expect the offense to change too much without LaFleur, and that’s not a knock on his ability as a coach. It’s simply an indication of how good McVay is as a play caller.

 making his first Pro Bowl thanks to 28 touchdown passes and just seven interceptions, but will his game take a step back without LaFleur and Olson? It shouldn’t. McVay has been Goff’s best mentor with the Rams and as long as he’s in his corner,Goff obviously had a great season in 2017, the young quarterback will be in good shape.

  'Sizable contingent' of officers if Eagles win

which would end a 57-season championship drought dating back to 1960. If the Eagles win it all,The Philadelphia Eagles are just one win away from their first Super Bowl title, the Philadelphia Police Department are taking no chances.

Eagles fans will be celebrating in the streets until the brink of dawn, which call call upon the heavy artillery to contain the ruckus. Philly Police Commissioner Richard Ross announced their plans to keep the fans at bay. 

 but we are also the business of allowing people to celebrate as long as it’s done peacefully,Womens Sean Davis Jersey," Ross told CBS Philly. "There will be a very,"We will be ready. We will be out there with a sizable contingent of officers that will be seen by most and we will make every effort to know that we are about business, very large number of police officers. It will be much larger than the championship game. We will be prepared for just about anything that will occur."

"I can’t tell you that there won’t still be attempts," Ross said. "But I would suspect that some of them will be far more difficult than they were with the Crisco attempt."

 and has several close friends on the team,Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount won two championships with the New England Patriots, whom he kept in contact with in group chats throughout the season.

Blount had stints with New England in the 2013 season, and again from the final month of the 2014 regular season through the 2016 season. He signed with the Eagles last spring as a free agent.

 Blount refused to talk about his time in New England, saying repeatedly,Throughout this season, "I don't play for them anymore."

 but rather a meeting space for a Minneapolis ad agency, one Minnesota storefront was decorated with a sign welcoming Eagles fans to "Stop in and have a free beer thrown at you!" The window was actually not a bar, Kruskopf & Co,Womens Cameron Sutton Jersey,A week after rowdy Philly fans fought with police horses and threw garbage at Vikings fans and the Minnesota team bus at the NFC Championship game at Lincoln Financial Field, but the point was well taken.

 the online hospitality marketplace in which residents rent out homes and apartments like hotel rooms. According to reports,Vikings fans are also taking their frustrations out on Eagles fans via Airbnb,Womens James Conner Jersey, some Airbnb renters have been asked not to rent their pads to Eagles fans in town for the big game because of "concerns from the post game violence and vandalism" that took place after the NFC title game.

 there were six arrests, three for selling counterfeit tickets. The city also spread Crisco on street lights to prevent wild fans from climbing them,Authentic Sean Davis Jersey,While there were no reports of property damage in Philadelphia after the Eagles advanced to their third Super Bowl, which only furthered the stereotype of unruly Philly fans.

 consumers are being warned about the price gouging that renters typically engage in around big events like the Super Bowl. a three-night stay in Minneapolis usually costs about $300, but the same three-night stay could cost more than $15,Authentic Artie Burns Jersey,Authentic Bud Dupree Jersey,While some vengeful Vikings Airbnb renters may be refusing to let Eagles fans stay at their properties,000 with the Super Bowl in town.

 or the annual extravaganza otherwise known as media night,The spectacle of Super Bowl Opening Night, was all so new to the Eagles.

 when the public address announcer asked the fans in attendance at the Xcel Energy Center,Womens Javon Hargrave Jersey, home of the NHL's Minnesota Wild,And they got a taste of it right away, how many of them are Eagles' fans.

 followed by the Vikings fans chanting,Womens Artie Burns Jersey, "Skol." Some Eagles fans tried chanting "Foles" for quarterback Nick Foles to drown it out,Loud boos ensued, but it didn't work.

 the home fans still aren't over the 38-7 drubbing the Eagles laid on their team in the NFC Championship game Jan. 21,Obviously, thus preventing the Vikings from becoming the first team to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium.

 the night was an exercise in the absurd, and there was no shortage of that,But really, including a guy in a shark costume interviewing Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham.

The shark first asked Bradham about what it's going to be like when the Patriots win their sixth Super Bowl. To which Bradham replied: "Not against us!" The shark then challenged Bradham to a game of cards.

 though. He had to. That’s what he was," Bradham said. "He cheated, Authentic Joshua Dobbs Jersey,a card shark. Then I told him,"I ended up losing, ‘Spygate.’ He broke out laughing."

 of course,The Patriots, are used to this circus. This is their third Super Bowl in the last four years. There aren't too many new questions or weird characters that they haven't seen before.

  Eagles' Jenkins excels despite busy season with protests, new baby
Posted by: aliciahuang - 02-01-2018, 07:23 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Daily News, along with many of my colleagues from the Inquirer,This is the first Super Bowl-week edition of Early Birds. The Eagles arrived in Minneapolis on Sunday. So did I, and Philly.com. We’ll have coverage for you throughout the week.

 and that they would need to rely on everyone’s expertise to solve the mystery. Unsurprisingly,Some groups were told that each member had a distinct role, these groups did the best.

 on these teams, groups whose members each had useful information – but weren’t told that the information each possessed was necessary for the team to perform well – did the worst. This happened because,Interestingly,Womens Cameron Sutton Jersey, individual members thought they could solve the mystery on their own.

How might this translate to football? Well, most teams are equally motivated to win the Super Bowl. But none likely understand the role and abilities of each player – and the need to coordinate – better than the Patriots. This is because head coach Bill Belichick’s system is designed to emphasize specific roles linked to specific abilities.

 the Dolphins,For example, he had been an average player. But Belichick had a role in mind for Welker,Womens James Conner Jersey, Belichick traded for undersized wide receiver Wes Welker. On his previous team, in 2007, bringing him to New England with the specific purpose of playing in the slot.

 fastest defensive backs. He just had to do one thing well: Give quarterback Tom Brady a short,Womens Joshua Dobbs Jersey,Importantly, underneath passing option. Welker ended up thriving; his production exploded,Authentic Bud Dupree Jersey, Welker didn’t have to outrun and outjump the opposing team’s biggest, in Belichik’s system, and he redefined a position now occupied by Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola.

 it makes it easy to adapt to adversity,Authentic Sean Davis Jersey,This type of system serves two functions. First, weaknesses and responsibilities. It creates what management scholars would refer to as a “transactive memory system” – a “group mind” where each team member knows what each other one is good at. This naturally builds interdependence by identifying the specific skills each player needs to contribute to the team. Second, it allows the players and coaches to understand each player’s strengths, setting up a dynamic where players can easily be plugged into roles to replace teammates lost to injury.

 you’re probably pretty confident you can win,Womens Javon Hargrave Jersey,Then there’s the Patriots’ history of winning. Since 2001, eight conference championship games and five Super Bowls. If you’re on the Patriots, they’ve won 15 division titles, regardless of the score or situation.

It’s one thing to tell the media you will win. It’s quite another to truly believe it, even when you’re down three touchdowns.

 has been shown to predict performance in a variety of situations,Indeed, in turn, the greatest predictor of being confident in your ability to win in the future is having won in the past. Confidence in your ability, from sports arenas to the classroom to the workplace.

In a 2016 paper, I explore the New York Yankees’ 2004 acquisition of superstar Alex Rodriguez, and the massive 10-year contract extension they awarded him in 2007. In this case, the Yankees overestimated Rodriguez’s longevity, and his performance started to falter as he aged. But perhaps more importantly, they underestimated the signal it sent to give a single player like Rodriguez – who failed to emerge as a respected team leader – the position of the organization’s most highly paid employee.

In a 2014 study of basketball teams, I was able to show that players who gained the confidence of their teammates not only got the ball more, but also had more plays drawn up on their behalf. For this reason, everyone around them ended up contributing less.

 there’s a struggle to figure out who is going to get the ball. But it also creates opportunities for players with smaller roles to step up.,Authentic James Conner Jersey,So when there’s a loss on the scale of Carson Wentz

After Wentz went down,Authentic Javon Hargrave Jerse,  the performance of the Eagles’ defense surged: The unit allowed only 33 points in their last four games. The offensive line has also played superbly, while the running backs boosted their production.

This likely occurred because when high-performing team members go down,Authentic Joshua Dobbs Jersey, others feel more responsible for the team’s performance. Researchers have been able to show that,Womens Artie Burns Jersey, in lieu of an injury to a key member of a team, other players tend to improve their focus and effort.

Still, the Patriots are probably more reliant on Tom Brady than the Eagles are on any one player. In both of the Patriots’ most recent Super Bowl losses,Authentic Artie Burns Jersey,despite their sound system, the Giants were able to disrupt Brady’s timing, the Patriots, dominate the offensive line and keep Brady off the field with a potent running game. Despite their many advantages,Womens Sean Davis Jersey, in this sense, are more vulnerable.

  Pat Shurmur's son has similar football intelligence to Giants coach
Posted by: aliciahuang - 01-31-2018, 07:44 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Kyle Shurmur, who is a senior starting quarterback at Vanderbilt University,Womens Landon Collins Jersey, appears to know how to dissect an entire offense and every assignment needed.

“And Kyle wrote a blocking assignment book for us,” Drew Gordon, told the New York Daily News. “He sat with the linemen and showed them why we had to do this,Womens Evan Engram Jersey, Shurmur’s former high school coach, and against this defense you have man on this protection, here you have zone. That was pretty advanced. And that’s probably something he got from his father.”

The younger Shurmur attended La Salle College High School in the Philadelphia area in 2013-2014.

As for the elder Shurmur,Womens Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey, and then took his football knowledge and translated it into his coaching career. But before he got that far, he’s been dissecting offenses going back to when he was the starting center at Michigan State University, Shurmur was breaking down opponent game film in high school for Dearborn Divine Child in Michigan.

“He was a student of the game from the first time he ever played, of individuals,Womens Davis Webb Jersey,” Wes Wishart said. “He wanted an edge so the guy across from him had no chance of beating him. He was a studier of formations, of techniques. He could call a run or pass just by looking at a guy’s knuckles when he put ’em down.”

After being a long-time assistant coach in the NFL who worked under Andy Reid for many years, Shurmur got the chance in 2011 to become the head coach of the Cleveland Browns. Shurmur was hired by Mike Holmgren,Womens Wayne Gallman Jersey, who had Shurmur’s uncle, Fritz Shurmur, as his one-time defensive coordinator with the Green Bay Packers.

After Shurmur was fired following the end of the 2012 season, he re-established himself as a top assistant coach and offensive coordinator for both the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings before he got hired as the 18th head coach in Giants history.

The Giants replaced Mike Solari,Authentic Eli Apple Jersey, who was offensive line coach during former coach Ben McAdoo's two-year tenure. He took the same job with the Seahawks before Shurmur was hired.

Hunter, figures to be an important hire for Shurmur, 58, a former center at Michigan State who has stressed the importance of offensive line in building his team. General manager Dave Gettleman shares the line of scrimmage philosophy.

They bonded as soon as Gettleman said, "everything starts with the offensive line," according to Shurmur.

The only holes remaining on the staff are offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, which are Shurmur's two areas of expertise. Minnesota's Kevin Stefanski and Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley are thought to be near the top of Shurmur's wish list.

Most of Hunter's NFL experience came with the Chargers, where he was offensive line coach from 2006-12. He added offensive coordinator to his title in 2012.

The son of a former NFL coach, Hunter spent 24 years coaching in college, including a one-game stint as LSU's interim head coach before Nick Saban arrived from Michigan State in 2000. Shurmur coached under Saban at Michigan State.

This was the moment for which Pat Shurmur had been preparing since he was fired as head coach of the Cleveland Browns five years ago.

The new head coach of the New York Giants, just introduced by president and co-owner John Mara to a room filled with family, team officials, reporters and cameras, stepped to the lectern Friday morning and began to thank those who helped him get a second opportunity here to make a first impression.

Mara and co-owner Steve Tisch, and their respective families.

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman and assistant GM Kevin Abrams.

"It's an honor and a privilege to be the head coach of the New York Giants," Shurmur continued.

Then, out of nowhere, the lights went out.

There was a flicker inside the Giants' auditorium, and the room went dark.

Complete darkness - a fitting symbol of the lost season the Giants desperately hope to leave behind.

Two years ago, the lasting highlight of Ben McAdoo's introductory news conference was his ill-fitted suit, and that tenure ended in embarrassment with his Dec. 4 firing.

But, as the room filled with laughter Friday,Authentic Mark Herzlich Jersey,  at least from the Giants' perspective, and perhaps, a tinge of here-we-go apprehension, Shurmur quipped without hesitation: "And we're off."

The man so many suggested might be overwhelmed by the Big Apple spotlight brushed off the unexpected circumstance, refusing to let what could have been another embarrassing start get in the way of what he'd come here to do. 

"My goal was to make sure everyone got to see me for who I am, why I'm here, what I believe in,Authentic Evan Engram Jersey," Shurmur later told The Record and NorthJersey.com. "That's what I needed to do, because I don't know if I would have been able to do that the first time [as a head coach in Cleveland]." 

The Giants were not looking to hire a head coach who could win press conferences.

And this time, not only did the suit fit Shurmur — complete with a red-and-blue tie,Authentic Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey, very similar to one worn by Mara during the festivities Friday — the job certainly did as well.

"I wasn't looking for flash," Mara said. "I was looking for somebody who I could envision leading us in the future. As Dave said,  was a professional and an adult. I think he checks all the boxes there."

Now,Authentic Davis Webb Jersey,one thing to consider with Shurmur: It's far easier to replace McAdoo, who was fired Dec. 4, than having to replace Tom Coughlin, a two-time Super Bowl champion and future Hall of Fame coaching legend.

But if anyone expected Shurmur to be in awe Friday morning,Authentic Wayne Gallman Jersey, and if he did not have the answers, that certainly was not the case. He answered questions directly, he explained why. 

"I'm not intimidated,Womens Mark Herzlich Jersey," Shurmur said. "I'm only — I would say this: The only thing that frightens me is anything that affects the health and welfare of my kids and my family. Other than that, have at it. I'm ready to go."

Shurmur, 52, made Giants' brass feel like he wanted them from the moment he sat down at the table for his interview three weeks ago in Minnesota.

That certainly helped them in the decision to make the feeling mutual.

"Pat made it pretty clear right from the beginning that he wanted this job. That did resonate," Mara said. "You want someone that really wants to be here, that thinks that there’s something about this franchise as opposed to just being another job."

An emotional Shurmur joked that his three daughters — Allyson, Erica and Claire were all in attendance, as was his wife Jennifer — "cry a lot." He quickly added that he cries a lot as well at the thought of having to pay for three weddings in the future.

When Shurmur arrived at the Giants' facility for the first time Thursday, he quickly gained an appreciation for the franchise legacy of which he is now part. His name is not on any of the four Vince Lombardi trophies on display in the lobby, but the presence of that championship hardware resonated.

Shurmur has previously worked for three NFL franchises, and none of them — Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns and Minnesota Vikings — have won the Super Bowl. 

"This is an iconic franchise. I understand most of the history. I walked by four Super Bowl trophies," he said. "As we go forward here, I'm looking forward to leading this organization, and I want to be the coach. I understand the responsibility that comes with being the coach. I'm taking over a team that was 3-13, so we've got to own that. There's a lot of work to be done."

  Mike Zimmer praise Giants' hire of Pat Shurmur,Brad Childress
Posted by: aliciahuang - 01-31-2018, 07:28 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Shurmur’s most recent boss, Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, but he was grateful for Shurmur getting another opportunity to become a head coach and hopes his second go-around is successful., is now in need of an offensive coordinator after losing Shurmur

” Zimmer said via Giants.com. “I’m happy for him and his family. It’s another great opportunity. I think he’s going to get an opportunity to work with [new Giants general manager] Dave Gettleman,Womens Landon Collins Jersey,“Pat did a great job, who is a really good football guy, except when they play the Vikings.”,Womens Evan Engram Jersey, and we thanked him yesterday for the success that he’s helped us with and we hope he’s successful in the future

 but then promoted him to offensive coordinator when Norv Turner stepped down in the middle of the 2016 season.,Zimmer had initially hired Shurmur to be the Vikings’ tight ends coach

One of Shurmur’s long-time co-workers and assistant coaches,Womens Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey, was also extremely high on the Giants’ decision to hire Shurmur as their next head coach because of his ability to handle the stressful environment of New York., Brad Childress

“Pat is a great hire because he’s wired and he’s a flatline guy, which I think probably thickened his skin a little bit in terms of the media and the fans. He’s always going to be level-headed and I’ve always appreciated that about him. He’s not going to rant and rave and stew. He’s going to figure out what his problem is and go about solving it.”,Womens Davis Webb Jersey,” Childress said on Giants.com’s ‘Big Blue Kickoff Live’ Monday. “What I mean by that is he’s never too high and he’s never too low. That’s Pat. He’s going to take it all in stride. He spent those years in Philadelphia

Childress and Shurmur’s history goes back almost 20 years. Both were assistant coaches under Andy Reid when they were on the Philadelphia Eagles. Then Shurmur hired Childress to be his offensive coordinator when they were with the Cleveland Browns in 2012.

 Gettleman also dispelled rumors that New England Patriots coordinators Matt Patricia and Josh McDaniels were preferred head coaching candidates to Pat Shurmur.,n addition to confirming that Eli Manning will return to the Giants and resume his role as the starting quarterback

Gettleman also seemed to choose his words very carefully, he appeared to take a subtle shot at departed head coach Ben McAdoo.,Womens Wayne Gallman Jersey, and in throwing his support behind Shurmur

“I really believe the head coach job for the New York Football Giants is a job for an adult, and Pat’s every bit of that, and I’m just excited about where we’re going.,” Gettleman told the media. “I’m just really excited. We’ve had some great conversations. He’s got a great sense of humor

 ‘This is an adult.’ Everybody wants the next whiz-bang kid. Let me tell you something,Womens Mark Herzlich Jersey,“He’s an adult. He’s mature. He’s got wisdom. He’s very even-keeled. It really pays off. I’ve watched him on the sideline. He doesn’t get shook. He doesn’t get rattled. This is a job for a grownup. We’re halfway through the interview and I wrote down, you look at history and see how that’s worked out. He’s a veteran, professional football coach.”, seasoned

McAdoo, of course, so the tone being set by Gettleman is clear., was considered the next “whiz-bang kid” when he was hired by the Giants

 Gettleman isn’t interested in hearing about that fake news.,And as far as the notion that New York preferred Patricia and/or McDaniels to Shurmur? Well

” Gettleman said via the New Your Post. “That’s why! It’s frustrating. People make [stuff] up. There’s no accountability.”,“Because you got agents [putting] all the [expletive] out

Shurmur said he’s ready to get to work and to restore the Giants to glory.

“It’s an honor and privilege to be head coach of the New York Giants, gritty team that knows how to compete. We want to put a group of 90 together that loves to play football.”,” Shurmur said. “There are a lot of very talented players on this team. We need to have a tough

 Shurmur,The former head coach of the Cleveland Browns, 52, including this season as the offensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings. He is inheriting in the Giants a team that suffered through a 3-13 disaster in 2017., has worked on the staffs of several NFL teams

 who was named the NFL’s top assistant this season.,The Giants were so bad that ownership felt it necessary to part ways with head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese during the season. Dave Gettleman was eventually hired as the new GM and the team hierarchy proceeded to interview several candidates before settling on Shurmur

“We did a considerable amount of research, but it struck me that the name that kept coming up was Pat Shurmur. Pat is the right coach at the right time for this franchise.”,” Giants co-owner John Mara said. “We were able to identify some great candidates

Co-owner Steve Tisch agreed with Mara’s assessment of the new head coach, adding, happy and optimistic that we got the right guy with Pat Shurmur.”, “I’m very confident

Known as a keen offensive mind, helping them get to the NFC championship game. He received high marks from insiders all over the NFL for the job he did turning third-string quarterback Case Keenun into a bona fide starter., Shurmur worked wonders with the Vikings

 who said he will call all the plays on offense,Authentic Evan Engram Jersey,Shurmur, took a no-nonsense approach to team building,Authentic Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey, Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple — were suspended at various points of the season for conduct detrimental to the team., making it clear he will not put up with the type of behavior that helped derail the Giants in 2017. Three cornerbacks — Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

“I have zero tolerance for people that don’t compete, and I have zero tolerance for people that show a lack of respect. People and the players that know me know that I’m willing to give them a hug at the end of a hard day.,Authentic Davis Webb Jersey,” Shurmur said. “I have zero tolerance for people that don’t give effort

“We’re going to do what we have to do to get better each day. I am as impatient as the fans,” he added., and I understand that

Two of the more pressing questions the Giants faced during Shurmur’s first few days on the job have been answered. They have hired James Bettcher to be the defensive coordinator and have tabbed veteran Eli Manning to be the starting quarterback to at least start the 2018 season.

Shurmur called Bettcher,Authentic Wayne Gallman Jersey, the former top defensive assistant for the Arizona Cardinals, and said he is looking forward to a prosperous relationship with two-time Super Bowl MVP Manning., a rising star

“He’s an outstanding football player,Authentic Mark Herzlich Jersey,” Shurmur said., and I can’t wait to get a chance to work with him

 specifically along the offensive line and in the running game.,The Giants have plenty of talent on defense but will likely need major upgrades on offense

” Shurmur said. “I think there’s a great example of that,Authentic Eli Apple Jersey,“Everything starts with the offensive line, what we went through in Minnesota. We didn’t change the oil up there; we changed the transmission. We went and got two free agent offensive linemen, and we transformed the offensive line that helped us doing the things that helped us win 14 games.”, we drafted a center that played like a veteran

 who was lost for the season with a broken ankle in Week 5 but should be ready to go at some point this summer.,He also said he cannot wait to design plays for superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

“He is a tremendous player, he’s outstanding.,” Shurmur said of Beckham. “He was high on our draft board in Philly. When you watch him on the field

” he added. “We’re going to play New York Giants offense.”,“We’ll have an offense that we’ll consistently try to do things that our players do well

The Giants have not won a postseason game since winning Super Bowl XLVI in early 2012. Mara, made it clear Friday he’s confident the hiring of Shurmur was a big step toward making his team into a postseason regular again., however

“I’ve interviewed a lot of coaches, and Pat Shurmur gave as good an interview as I’ve ever been involved in, and Pat Shurmur did that.”,” Mara said. “You want someone that really wants to be here and thinks there’s something special about this franchise

 it wasn’t enough to earn him All-Pro honors or even Pro Bowl honors.,New York Giants defensive tackle Damon Harrison was named the league’s best run defender by Pro Football Focus and that was easy for anyone to see. Unfortunately for Snacks however

 Harrison will return to the Giants with an even larger chip on his shoulder and the desire to be the most dominant defender in the league.,In 2018

  Arizona Cardinals waiting for Larry Fitzgerald's decision on retirement
Posted by: aliciahuang - 01-30-2018, 08:05 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

When the Cardinals formally introduced Steve Wilks as their new head coach on Tuesday, they also handed out a news release with a collection of quotes from players and coaches from around the NFL and college football programs saying how much they love and respect Wilks and how well they think he will do in Arizona.

None, however, was named Larry Fitzgerald, who is staying out of the spotlight as he continues to contemplate whether to retire or return for a 15th season.

With so much praise being heaped on Wilks, one would assume that bodes well for coaxing Fitzgerald into staying. It certainly can’t hurt, although Fitzgerald’s decision likely never was or will be tied to the new coach.

“I know the questions are all about Larry, but I’d say let Larry go through his process,Authentic Dak Prescott Jersey,” Cardinals President Michael Bidwill said. “I’m sure he saw what we saw. There’s a great leader who’s going to do a great job. I’m excited.

“I know Larry will go through his process. Let’s not rush him. I know everybody’s anxious about it, but let’s let him go through his process and come to his own conclusion and we’ll see where he is.”

Wilks said he already has had “a very in-depth conversation” with Fitzgerald, 34. He said the star wide receiver never expressed his intentions about the 2018 season. Likewise,Authentic Jason Witten Jersey, Wilks said he never asked Fitzgerald which way he was leaning.

“But we would definitely love to have him back,” Wilks said. “He is a major part of our success, present and future. He’s a first-ballot Hall of Famer,Authentic Tyron Smith Jersey, our past, so we definitely want him back.”

Wilks said he viewed the conversation as beneficial, whatever Fitzgerald decides.

“I wanted Larry just to get a feel for me being the new head coach,” he said. “I just wanted to be able to talk to him about my philosophy and the direction in which I saw this team going. He didn’t express whether or not he was or wasn’t coming back. I didn’t want to try to put any pressure on him. He’s going to make that decision in time,Authentic Tyron Smith Jersey, in his time.”

Wilks began interviewing prospective assistant coaches even before his introductory news conference on Tuesday.

Former Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell interviewed for that position on Wilks’ staff Tuesday morning, according to several reports.

Wilks also is interested in talking to former Chargers coach Mike McCoy for the offensive-coordinator position. Panthers linebackers coach Al Holcomb reportedly will come to Arizona as defensive coordinator, replacing Bettcher.

“We’re definitely trying to make sure that we get things done before the Super Bowl,” he said. “We’ve been very active this week, already,Womens Travis Frederick Jersey, so far, getting coaches in and out. There’s going to be some more coaches coming in this week, so we’re excited about the process and trying to get it done as quickly as possible.”

A story recently surfaced in which Wilks apparently introduced himself to Keim while both were vacationing at Myrtle Beach, S.C. The story is half true. Wilks approached Keim on the beach, but it wasn’t the first time they had met.

They’ve known each other for a while, having been introduced through a mutual friend in the business.

 really,“I’ve known Steve, before that situation at Myrtle Beach, but my family and I, we vacation there every year,” Wilks said. “And I saw Steve there and just went up and introduced myself again. We just started having a quick conversation. It was really brief and short, but that’s what it was.”

Vikings fans weren’t just demoralized by the team’s loss in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday in Philadelphia. They were dissed.

Eagles fans threw beer at Minnesota fans. They taunted them. They even carried a banner with an expletive taunting Millie Wall, the 99-year-old lifelong Vikings fan who is going to the Super Bowl courtesy of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Now some Philadelphia fans are trying to make amends. “A flood of donations are coming in from @Eagles fans today to the MZF,” said a tweet from the Mike Zimmer Foundation. “Most of them apologizing for how their fans treated Vikings.”

By Wednesday afternoon, more than $11, Vikki Zimmer,000 had come in to the foundation created to honor the Vikings coach’s late wife, who died in 2009. The foundation provides opportunities for Minnesota youths.

“The NFL is filled with passionate fans that just want their team to win,” said Zimmer’s daughter and foundation spokeswoman Corri Zimmer White. “We may not have gotten the warmest welcome in Philly or the outcome that we wanted, but it’s cool to see when football fans from different teams come together to do some good.”

In a separate effort, Farmington resident Jessica Leibrock implored Vikings fans to take the high road and contribute to a GoFundMe campaign called “Vikings Brotherly Love.” She challenged fans to raise $38,000, a thousand dollars for each point the Eagles scored in their 38-7 victory. Leibrock and her husband started the page as a way to cope with the lopsided loss and the “awful behavior” she saw on the news and in social media videos. “Let’s respond with kindness, especially to people who don’t deserve it,” she said.

As of Wednesday, the effort had raised more than $12, some coming from Eagles fans. The money will go to the Eagles Charitable Foundation,000, which has served more than a million low-income children in the Philadelphia area.

“This is a great gesture by a classy Vikings fan base after a heartbreaking loss,” wrote donor Philly Skins Fan, who gave $38. “Philly is a great town with great people despite the knuckleheads who made it rough on visitors from Minnesota this Sunday. ”

In an e-mail, Philadelphia Mayor James Kenney lamented the antics of “a few disrespectful clowns.”

The two campaigns come a week after hundreds of Vikings fans rallied to support a charity led by New Orleans punter Thomas Morstead after the “Minnesota Miracle” Jan. 14. Morstead was the first Saints player to return to the field for a meaningless extra point after the winning pass from the Vikings’ Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs as time ran out.

Tocho,Womens Dak Prescott Jersey, a seventh-round draft pick by the team last spring who had been on the practice squad, who had spent time on the practice squad, and tackle Storm Norton,Authentic Zack Martin Jersey, signed reserve/futures deals Monday with Minnesota. Tocho said he chose the Vikings after also weighing an offer from Houston.

“I just looked at the situation moving forward and how much I learned playing in this defense playing the safety position,Womens Jason Witten Jersey,’’ said Tocho, who was a cornerback at North Carolina State. “I felt like it was the best situation for me moving forward for my career.’’

Tocho last fall was released three times by the Vikings and then three times re-signed to the practice squad. He weighed that when considering whether to return to the team.

“It’s hard not to have a grudge toward that,Womens Tyron Smith Jersey, but I understand it’s a business and I could have made the 53-man roster and I wouldn’t have had to to through those type of obstacles,Authentic Travis Frederick Jersey,’’ Tocho said. “I have an opportunity to make the 53-man roster with the Minnesota Vikings, but that’s all in the past now, so that’s all I’m worried about now.’’

Norton,Womens Zack Martin Jersey, who was an undrafted rookie from Toledo, had been signed to the Vikings practice squad in December and was on it for a month before being released on Jan. 16.

The Minnesota Vikings became the first Super Bowl host to advance to the conference championship game, but fell one win shy of the big game, and former Vikings linebacker, suffering a 38-7 loss at Philadelphia.  South Dakota native, Chad Greenway shares his thoughts on the team's historic season.

The Vikings saw their season come to an abrupt end with last Sunday's 31-point loss at Philadelphia.  It was the team's first trip to the NFC Championship game since Chad Greenway and crew lost a heartbreaker in New Orleans nearly a decade ago.

"My wife and I have talked about it already.  What's worse, Authentic Cole Beasley Jersey,to lose in overtime in New Orleans or get beat bad in Philly?  What's the worse loss from an athlete's perspective?  I don't think there's a right answer there.  They both stink," Mt. Vernon native Chad Greenway said.

This year's loss came on the heels of a win over the Saints, and the "Minnesota Miracle".

 week to week,"In the NFL, that's why you have to move on from a win or a loss, because you have to figure out how to win that next one because everybody is so good.  So, a team where we were supposed to win and beat can get you.  It's just one of those things.  In the NFL, everybody is good," Greenway said.

As good as the Eagles were in the conference finals, Greenway says home field played a major role in the outcome.

"I think the one thing that nobody really predicted was how big that home field advantage was going to be.  We got off to a fast start, but one turnover, and before you know it things kind of get away from you, the crowd gets into it," Greenway said.

The Vikings have already lost offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, and have to settle on a quarterback, but Greenway says the best is yet come.

"Let this become part of our history, but not our future.  I think the biggest thing with Coach Zim is to find that offensive coordinator.  We lost Sherm, which is a big loss.  I thought he did a great job.  Obviously, identify who your quarterback is going to be and keep adding pieces.  This team can win right away, just got to get those pieces back," Greenway said.
