Texans name Jadeveon Clowney their Ed Block Courage award winner
Houston Chronicle - about 1 year
For his perseverance and recovery through numerous injuries, Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney was named the Ed Block Courage award winner in balloting by his teammates. The award recognizes extra efforts both on and off the field and their ability to overcome great adversity. Among the injuries Clowney sustained as a rookie: a sports hernia surgery, concussion, meniscus surgery and finally microfracture knee surgery. The first overall pick spent a large chunk of his rookie season on injured reserve with seven tackles in four games. “It meant a lot,” Clowney said. “I got respect for my teammates. This is big. I worked hard in the offseason. They’ve seen me. They noticed that. Everybody around here noticed that, so it’s pretty big. “It’s very special. Me and that training staff, we put a lot of work in. It paid off at the end. Guys around here watched me work all offseason. The trainers watched me work and the coaches. To know that’s paid off and they noticed is very, ...

The People's Champion Fantasy Draft Results
Daily Norseman - over 4 years
The results from The People's Champion fantasy draft are listed below. In my insanity I created this MONSTER of a fantasy league. I had to create a league that was a BEAST! Just like The People's Champion! Jim Kleinsasser outrunning NDSU defense (via PilotC150) This is a big boy league. You have to put your pants on to participate. I am not a fan of having 8 starters or so (including a defense and a kicker) and then a few bench spots. That is too easy. Having to draft 2nd and 3rd string WRs and RBs really tests your knowledge of players in the league. I also do not like having much of a bench. I prefer none at all to be honest. I hate it when you have a player on the bench go "busty" during a week but you miss out on those points. That is lame IMO. If you were smart enough to draft somebody then you should reap the rewards. Otherwise it is pure luck. I think it went very well too. Each pick was 45 seconds so it did not take that long at al ...

Fantasy football 2012
Democrat Herald - over 4 years
The final week of the NFL preseason is upon us, thus it’s likely time for your fantasy football draft. At the risk of an 18-team league commissioner showing his hand, here are my last-second hints to having a successful fantasy draft, and thus, season. I’ll also save you $8 and a trip to the store for an obsolete fantasy preview magazine released in June with this quick-reference list. Each NFL team’s recent cutdown to 53 players shows that this list is already a week too old, but it’s still a good base for your draft. Quarterbacks Depending on your league setup, a quarterback’s fortunes can often decide your fantasy fortunes as well. Passing records are broken every season, especially in 2011, as teams have looked to their air attacks more than ever. That has had a large impact on league standings, and the importance of securing a quality quarterback continues to affect drafts. MVP Aaron Rodgers has clearly been the most reliable signal-caller over the last two y ...

Jarius Wright: The next Santana Moss?
Daily Norseman - almost 5 years
The obvious comparisons to Height and Speed are there. Player Height Weight 40-yard dash Santana Moss 5' 9 ½" 181 lbs. 4.31s Jarius Wright 5' 9 ⅝" 182 lbs. SEE BELOW ↓ Wright ran a 4.41 at the Combine [hand-timed as low as 4.39s] and stood on that number at his Pro Day. However, Arkansas coaches say he was once clocked a 4.27 during a 2011 Razorbacks spring practice/last years Arkansas pro day. While that is not an electronically recorded time which makes it likely a low 4.3 instead that’s still more than impressive as anything under 4.4 is good enough to consistently separate in the NFL and provide the deep threat. His combine numbers were a little slow but I would like to point out players don’t always run their fastest time when their on that kind of stage and so nervous to perform in what is basically their biggest job interview of their life. Look at Kendall Wright for example. Most Razorback fans were shocked that Wright ran so slow at the combine after ...

Some Clarification is in Order: Manning and the Offense Part 2
Mile High Report - almost 5 years
In the last article we summarized the offense Manning has been running for the past few years, it's main formations and what types of players best fit this offense. Today we'll be comparing our roster to that template to see how we lineup and what our current roster does well and what areas the players will need to improve in. So late time we looked at: - Formations - Play calling Today we'll be looking at: - Offensive line responsibilities and skill set - Skill position responsibilities and skill set It might best to review the last article, but it's not required for further reading. Now remember this isn't a depth chart, I'm just looking at this roster player by player and seeing how each fits into this style of offense. Offensive Line Responsibilities and Skill Set: Overall One of the main topics we discussed last time dealt with the power of the audible combined with a smart quarterback. The downside to this is requires a very smart offensive line to go along wi ...

Patriots Should Reunite With Jabar Gaffney to Intensify Training Camp Competition Among Wide Receivers
NESN - almost 5 years
FOXBORO, Mass. -- Patriots head coach Bill Belichick decided earlier this offseason that he'd set up a tremendous training camp competition at the wide receiver position. It's time to throw another one into the ring. The Redskins have reportedly released Jabar Gaffney, who was the ultimate role player for the Patriots from 2006-08. He could fit that exact mold again in 2012 if the Patriots decide to reunite with Gaffney, assuming he makes the team, which would be likely. Sure, the Patriots already have way too many wideouts on the roster, but that's clearly been the intention. Belichick isn't worried about hurting the feelings of an experienced veteran because the message has been clear -- they want a depth chart full of reliable, smart receivers who can keep pace with Brady. Gaffney was among the Patriots' array of castoffs they acquired in 2006, when they scrambled to recover from the losses of Deion Branch and David Givens, and the Florida product blossomed.
