Carolina Panthers Mock Draft 3-Round Predictions
isports web - almost 2 years
The Carolina Panthers have been fairly inactive since the start of free agency this offseason and as a result there are still many questions to be answered. This relative inactivity means there is still quite a bit of available salary-cap space. However with most of the high-quality free agents already signed the Panthers will likely look to the draft to fill the roster’s major gaps. With the inevitable departure of defensive end Greg Hardy finally a reality it would appear that one of those gaps would be in the defensive line. That being said the Panthers could probably afford to hold off on using a high draft pick on a defensive lineman. The starting four was beginning to gel by the end of the season, in particular the DT tandem of Kawann Short and Star Lotulelei, who were drafted in the first and second rounds of the 2013 draft. Another current hole in Carolina’s roster is at the receiver position. While Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen put up strong numbers last season, Cam Newto ...

Lions Rally To Beat Cowboys 31-30: Detroit Victory Secured By Stafford's Late Lunge
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
DETROIT -- DETROIT (AP) — Calvin Johnson thought Matthew Stafford was going to spike the ball for at least another snap. The Dallas Cowboys did, too. Stafford's 1-yard lunge over a pile of linemen with 12 seconds left and Johnson's 329 yards receiving lifted the Detroit Lions to a 31-30 win over Dallas on Sunday. "I was yelling that I was going to spike the ball," Stafford recalled. "But their linebackers were just standing there." The Cowboys weren't just standing around letting Johnson make catch after catch, but he made them look helpless. Johnson almost broke an NFL record, and could celebrate the feat because of a comeback from a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit that some people who entered Ford Field didn't see because they had left. "Even our fans didn't think we could pull this one out," he said. "They were leaving, but we knew we could do it." Johnson's total trails only the 336 yards receiving Flipper Anderson had for the Los Angeles Rams against New Orleans on Nov ...

What Are Some Good Non-Obvious Insights About Doing Well in Fantasy Football?
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
This question originally appeared on Quora. Answer by Cameron Daigle, Football Enthusiast Extraordinaire 1) Don't overestimate big-name players. Just because somebody is on the cover of Madden or in a Pepsi commercial doesn't mean they'll produce for you. Some of those guys are were total flash-in-the-pan flukes (Hey-o, Peyton Hillis) and others are just on the decline in terms of raw fantasy output due to age or circumstance (Roddy White is now second to Julio Jones, Miles Austin is second to Dez Bryant, Brandon Lloyd had one good year, Willis McGahee is past his prime, etc. etc.). Rosters change every year, and it only takes one draft class for a Julio Jones to pop up and make a former top-tier asset fall to mid-tier. 2) Don't stress out about bye weeks. This is a personal philosophy of mine. There's enough going on in drafts that bye weeks are just one more thing to complicate matters. Worst case scenario, you'll end up with one week where you field a team of scrubs, whereas i ...

Letting Go and Trusting Yourself
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
Looking back to a few weeks ago at my first game since 2010 -- 980 days from the last time I played, as my mom likes to put it -- it was a tough loss, and I was devastated in a way. There is no better win than one against the Dallas Cowboys, and we didn't get it, but I could not help but to feel this positive inner-glow. After two ACL injuries, I was so blessed to be able to come back and restart my career playing in the fashion that I did. I was happy, considering my journey and, more importantly, the people who were there with me. I know that it put a smile on all of their faces because it's been a tough couple of years for all of us. That is, for my immediate family, friends (and Twitter followers); they've all uplifted me and have seen me through to this day. But back to the game, I was really happy with my performance. On the interception route, I tweaked my hamstring. It caused me to play a little bit softer on Miles Austin midway through the second quarter. I kept saying to mys ...

Five Keys to Victory: Chiefs vs. Cowboys
Arrowhead Addict - over 3 years
    Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports Every week, we here at Arrowhead Addict break down the Chiefs’ matchup of the week and predict five things the team will have to do in order to win. Welcome to Five Keys to Victory.   Key #1: Pressure Tony Romo Tony Romo is very well known for the poor decisions he makes when he drops back to pass.  There are so many memes about Tony Romo getting intercepted that I’m about to unlike the NFL Meme page on Facebook. The Kansas City Chiefs currently lead the NFL in sacks and Justin Houston has half of the six sacks that the Chiefs have. If  Dontari Poe, who will be going up against rookie center Travis Frederick, can pressure Romo along with Houston, you can bet the ball will end up in the hands of someone on the Kansas City Chiefs defensive unit.   Key #2: Special Teams Needs to Be Special Last week we saw something no one expected. David Toub’s punt unit let up a blocked punt safety that gave the Jaguars an early lead. After a fantast ...

Chiefs vs. Cowboys Injury Report
Arrowhead Addict - over 3 years
Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports The Kansas City Chiefs will try to win their second game in a row this Sunday when they host the Dallas Cowboys in the team’s season opener at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs are riding high after a dominating performance last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars. While KC played well, the Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t exactly Super Bowl contenders. The Chiefs defense will face a much, much stiffer test in the Cowboys and QB Tony Romo. Here is a look at the Week 2 injury report: Questionable: CB Dunta Robinson, TE Travis Kelce Robinson is not actually injured. As far as I can tell, he has missed the entire week of practice due to a personal issue. We got the following from Chiefs head coach Andy Reid on Friday: Q: What about Dunta Robinson; what’s his status? REID: “He did not practice today. He is not here. He’s been excused for personal reasons and we’ll just see how it goes. It’s a day-to-day thing.” Q: Do you expect him back at all? ...

Chiefs vs. Cowboys: Scouting Dallas RB DeMarco Murray
Arrowhead Addict - over 3 years
Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports When you think of the 2013 Dallas Cowboys’ offense, chances are you think of Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and of course, Jason Witten. The common thread between those four players is the passing game, and for good reason. Romo, as inconsistent as he can be, is a tremendous quarterback when he’s on, and Bryant, Austin and Witten are exceptional targets. While it could be easy to get caught up in Dallas’ passing game, let’s take a few moments to focus on the running attack. The Cowboys’ running game may not get the attention it once did, and much of that may have to do with the fact that their No. 1 back, DeMarco Murray, has struggled to stay healthy. Murray played in 13 games in 2011, and only appeared in 10 in 2012. Still, he’s totaled 1,646 yards and six touchdowns in those limited experiences. When Murray is healthy, he’s a great running back, and for all intents and purposes, he should be ready to go this Sunday at Arrowhead. Conside ...

“Hi, I’m Dontari Poe. Nice To Eat You, Travis.”
Arrowhead Addict - over 3 years
The Kansas City Chiefs’ defense was dominant last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This week, the Chiefs have a much stiffer test at home against the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys beat the New York Giants on the Sunday night game,  36-31, in what was a truly unwatchable and sloppy contest. There were seven turnovers and I know for all Addicts how painful it was to see one of our favorite former players, Brandon Carr, get a pick-six while wearing the blue and silver of Dallas. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo played well enough, hitting on 36 of 49 pass attempts for 263 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. His offensive line was decent, giving up just two sacks for 19 yards and six hits on the quarterback. In comparison, the Chiefs defense had six sacks and 10 QB hits against the Jaguars. The key match-up for this home opener may be Chiefs’ nose tackle Dontari Poe against Cowboys’ rookie center Travis Frederick. Frederick was the Cowboys’ first round pick and 31st overal ...

Dallas Cowboys Q&A with Scott Crisp + Texans players to watch
Houston Chronicle - over 3 years
Today’s Cowboys Q&A is with Scott Crisp of the Blue Star Blog. He is also a standup comic, which seems unnecessary when you also write about the Cowboys as that franchise’s actions tend to write their own jokes. (You know, “Glory Hole,” “Special Sauce,” everything Jerry Jones related). I like funny people and supporting people who do comedy in front of other humans, as that can’t be easy. I asked Scott what comedy stuff he has coming up, and his answer? “I’ve got a show coming up on September 5 or 7 with Shane Torres, a hilarious Ft. Worthian (Ft. Worthite?) who lives in Portland now. That’s at the Four-Day Weekend Theatre in Downtown Ft. Worth (I’ll tweet the date once it’s concrete). Then I’m on a show September 12 at the Dallas Comedy House with (among others) Clint Werth, the Dallas Observer’s Best Comic in Dallas 2012. So hopefully, there are a lot of Houstonians who are into comedy and making long drives to watch comedy.” You can follow Scott at his Twitter account @S ...

Rookies Carry Redskins To Playoffs
Huffington Post Sports - about 4 years
LANDOVER, Md. — Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris needed only four months to put the Washington Redskins in a place they haven't been this millennium – on top of the NFC East. Led by a pair of rookies serenaded loudly and lovingly as "R-G-3!" and "Al-fred Mor-ris!," the Redskins claimed their first division title since 1999, beating the archrival Dallas Cowboys 28-18 Sunday night in a winner-take-all finale to end the NFL's regular season. First-round pick Griffin ran for 63 yards and a touchdown, and Morris – the out-of-nowhere sixth-rounder from Florida Atlantic – ran for 200 and three scores. He set the franchise single-season rushing record for the Redskins (10-6), who revived the season behind their quarterback's talent and leadership to win seven straight after their bye week. They are the first NFL team to rally from 3-6 to make the playoffs since the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1996. Washington will host the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday, the Redskins' th ...

Playoff, Draft Spots Up For Grabs In Week 17
Huffington Post Sports - about 4 years
By Eric Edholm, Pro Football Weekly It's down to this for the regular season: win-and-in for some teams, win-and-wait for others and for the rest of the playoff wallflowers, it's Sunday and then a long wait until training camp. Check out all the major story lines for Week 17 as we get ready for the playoffs that follow: 1. Since the NFL has gone to the all-divisional format in Week 17 it has prevented some teams from pulling starters early and guaranteed that there will be meaningful final-week matchups that will determine division titles, playoff seeding and who will stay home in January. Ten of the 12 playoff teams are locked in, and six of the eight division champions have been determined. And yet, there are a lot of unknowns, especially in the NFC. The Redskins, Cowboys, Giants, Vikings and Bears are all in the picture to get into the final two spots. Seeding is all over the map, too: The Seahawks can be anywhere from the No. 2 seed (hosting at least one playoff game ...

    More Details Hide Details Austin, who was projected to have a big role in a young and inexperienced wide receiver corps, was held to 13 catches for 224 yards and 1 TD in 11 games. He had some moments, such as a 39-yard catch and run for a TD against the Redskins, but he was still criticized for not producing, as he was held to catches in 5 different games, with a season high of 4 catches for 52 yards.

  • 2013
    Age 28
    Austin looked to bounce back in 2013.
    More Details Hide Details After a Week 1 performance with 10 receptions and 72 receiving yards in a victory over the New York Giants, in the next two weeks, he would be held to 5 receptions and 53 receiving yards, while suffering a hamstring injury in the third game. After being shut down by the team in an effort to return him to health, he did not have another reception until a Week 12 victory over the New York Giants. In that game, Austin had one reception for 17 yards followed by another discouraging performance in a Thanksgiving victory over the Oakland Raiders, with one reception for 18 yards. His season would end up being a disappointment after missing five games with a left hamstring injury, never displaying his explosive speed and being held without a reception in two games. Austin finished with his lowest receiving numbers since his second year in the league and his future with the team at risk, taking into account his history of hamstring injuries and rookie Terrance Williams playing well in his absence.
  • 2012
    Age 27
    After having a disappointing season, Austin started 2012 with 4 receptions for 73 yards while also grabbing a key touchdown in the 4th quarter of a 24-17 upset win over the Super Bowl defending champions New York Giants.
    More Details Hide Details The next game was a surprise defeat to the Seattle Seahawks, where he had 5 receptions for 63 yards while also grabbing a touchdown. The next week, in a victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Austin had 5 receptions for 107 yards. In the fourth game against the Chicago Bears, he had 4 receptions for 57 yards while also grabbing a touchdown in a losing effort caused by the Cowboys' 5 interceptions. He bounced back with 5 receptions for 97 yards with a touchdown in a victory over the Carolina Panthers. In a Week 13 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, he had 2 receptions for 46 yards with a touchdown. Austin's multiple injuries and the emergence of Dez Bryant as the Cowboys' leading wide receiver, hurt his chances of reaching 1,000 yards, but still had a productive year with 943 receiving yards, 66 receptions and 6 touchdowns.
  • 2011
    Age 26
    Austin's 2011 season was marred by nagging hamstring injuries which caused him to miss 6 games and limited him to his lowest reception, touchdown, and yardage output since the 2008 season.
    More Details Hide Details
    Austin's 2011 season started well with a 5-catch, 90-yard performance in week 1, followed by a career-best mark for touchdowns in a game with 3 to go along with 9 catches for 143 yards in a week 2 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
    More Details Hide Details In week 14 while playing against the New York Giants to secure the division title and a playoff spot, he lost in the lights of Cowboys Stadium a first down pass from Tony Romo that would have won the game for the Cowboys, who ended losing 34-37 and eventually missing the playoffs.
  • 2010
    Age 25
    Austin dated Kim Kardashian in 2010.
    More Details Hide Details
    He made his second consecutive Pro Bowl in 2010, replacing DeSean Jackson who sprained his MCL during practice for the Pro Bowl.
    More Details Hide Details
    With 10 catches in each of the first two games of the 2010 season, Austin became the second player in Cowboys history to record double-digit catches in consecutive weeks.
    More Details Hide Details On Thanksgiving Day, Austin scored a 60-yard touchdown on an end-around. However, the Cowboys lost 30-27 to the New Orleans Saints. He finished the season with 69 catches for 1,041 yards and 7 touchdowns.
    He signed a $3.168 million contract in June 2010 and his extension was worth $54 million, which brought the total value of his contract to $57 million.
    More Details Hide Details The team paid a very high first year salary ($17 million), by taking advantage that the NFL collective bargaining agreement wasn't renewed, and in the final year of the agreement there was no salary cap system in place. Even though the NFL initially approved the contract, in 2013 commissioner Roger Goodell would penalize the Cowboys by taking $10 million from the team's original $120.6 million salary cap space.
    On September 9, 2010, Austin agreed to a six-year contract extension that began in 2011.
    More Details Hide Details The deal included $17 million in guaranteed salary.
  • 2009
    Age 24
    He also tied for first in the NFC with 11 receiving touchdowns which was tied for third in the NFL for receiving touchdowns in only starting 11 games in the 2009 season.

Austin made his second career start on October 25 against the Atlanta Falcons replacing Patrick Crayton as the No. 2 receiver. Austin solidified his place as a starting receiver with 171 receiving yards along with 2 touchdowns. After only two weeks as a starting wide receiver, Austin was the ninth-most productive receiver in the league going into Week 8, and moved up to eighth just four weeks later having caught his 8th touchdown against the Oakland Raiders on Thanksgiving Day. Against the Giants in week 13 he had 10 catches for 104 yards and a touchdown.
  • 2006
    Age 21
    Austin was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2006 by the Dallas Cowboys.
    More Details Hide Details He made the team based on his potential and was used mainly on special teams, returning 29 kickoffs for 753 yards and recorded 5 tackles. His main highlight of the year was in the Cowboys playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks. He returned 3 kickoffs for 136 yards in the game, including a 93-yard touchdown return. In the 55 postseason games in franchise history, it was the Cowboys' first ever kickoff return touchdown. Austin was the team's main kickoff returner, ranking third in the NFC and ninth in the league with a 25.5 average on 24 attempts for 612 yards. He set career-highs with six kickoff returns for 166 yards against the Green Bay Packers. He also recorded his first career reception against the New York Jets. Austin had a strong training camp and was contending for the starting position that was open with the departure of Terry Glenn, until spraining his knee in the third preseason game against the Houston Texans. After missing some games with the injury, he exploded against the Green Bay Packers registering 115 yards on two catches for his first career 100-yard game and first touchdown. He suffered a second knee injury against the Washington Redskins and missed three games.
    He ran 4.47 second 40-yard dash and jumped 40.5 inches in the vertical leap at the 2006 NFL combine.
