Worst miss: Daunte Culpepper, free agent, 2006. A shame, really: They got the wrong franchise guy coming off a serious injury that offseason, because Drew Brees and his bad shoulder went to New Orleans. (That was also the Nick Saban I’m not going to Alabama year, which was followed by the Cam Cameron, 1-15, Cleo Lemon year.)
Youth Jamon Brown Jersey Against the Cowboys, the running game and the pass defense were even better. The Eagles rushed 33 times for 215 yards, with Ajayi leading the way with a 71-yard dash. They sacked Dak Prescott four times and intercepted him three times. They also forced him to fumble and turned that into another score.
Wentz had a rough first half Sunday with a string of incompletions and little help from his receivers. He ended up with efficient numbers (14-of-27 passing, 168 yards, two TDs). He took advantage of having plenty of time to throw; combined with his elusiveness, Shane Lechler Jersey a strong Cowboys pass rush couldn’t drop him once.
Jacoby Brissett has emerged as a viable NFL quarterback, giving the Colts both Luck insurance and an interesting trade asset. There are even questions about whether Luck will ever be the same quarterback again, given that the Colts clearly expected him to recover in time to play during the first half of the 2018 season and he has spent time in Europe seeking treatment.
In no uncertain terms, the Legion and VFW told Goodell they disagree with NFL players not standing during the singing of The Star-Spangled Banner and presentation of the American flag, but the veterans groups also said they respect players’ First Amendment rights. At least from the standpoint of the Legion and VFW, there won’t be any organized boycott of the NFL around Veterans Day, the federal holiday designated for Nov. 11 (this year it will be observed on Friday).
Goodell, who is fighting off a coup attempt by disgruntled Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, was wise to meet with veterans groups who have been smoldering over the NFL’s seeming acceptance of the player anthem protests, which started in 2016.
