For all the concerns expressed by some Baseball Jerseys For Sale that the business of the NFL might be in decline, the Packers offer a rebuttal.
As the only publicly held team — thus the only one required to open its books — the Packers serve as an indicator for the financial health of the league, and the numbers keep going up.
According to Richard Ryman of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Packers reported record revenue and record expenses in 2017.
My whole life I played in a 3-4, says Buckner. It was about defending two gaps all through college and even a little bit into high school. So [in 2016] it was easy for me as a rookie to come in, working in the same scheme and everything. Last year was an adjustment. But I Cheap NFL Jerseys got the hang of it and I like the 4-3 a lot better. I like being able to penetrate against the run and get vertical. That penetration against the run so naturally converts to a pass rush that, as Buckner explains it, not even the fake handoffs of play-action slow down the D-line.
While Buckner’s smooth transition to gap penetrator is commendable, it should be expected of any first-rounder in this day and age. Because as Paul Guenther, the defensive coordinator working across the Bay in Oakland, puts it, the whole 3-4 vs. 4-3 thing gets way overblown. You’re in nickel 60% of the time anyway. Most nickel fronts feature four down linemen.
Bell has not said if he’ll follow the same script as last year and report to the Steelers just before training camp. There have been suggestions that he could extend his holdout into the season, although he’d lose $852,000 each time the team plays a game without him and having his best season to date seems unlikely if he’s going to miss a big chunk of it by choice.
In the first edition of Peter King’s Football Morning in America, NFL senior V.P. of officiating Al Riveron attempts to address concerns about the new helmet rules (and, yes, there are two of them, not one) by explaining that the new rule that prohibits players from lowering their helmets and initiating contact will not lead to an ejection-fest.
That’s fine. That’s nice. But that’s hardly the primary reason to believe that potentially revolutionary changes to the game of football will happen as these two new helmet rules took root.
