2013-Nov-29 - Former NFL great Deion Sanders weighed
Dez Bryant Needs Help
Former NFL great Deion Sanders Trent Richardson Youth Jersey weighed in on Dez Bryant, who was recently kicked out of a shopping mall over sagging pants, and criticized the Cowboys receiver's behavior.
Talking on the Ben Skin Show on ESPN 103.3 FM Matt Hasselbeck NFL Jersey in Dallas Friday morning, Sanders said that Bryant's actions at the mall were "ignorant" and said he needs help.
"He Colts LaRon Landry Jersey needs help. He needs help," Sanders said. "I told the Cowboys from day one that he needs help. Matter Darrius Heyward-Bey Youth Jersey of fact, they have a team in place to help him. But you cannot tell a grown man what to do."
Police said on Tuesday that security at NorthPark Center asked Bryant and his three friends to pull up their pants. According to the police statement, the 2010 first round pick went "into a profanitylaced tirade" and refused to leave the mall.
Sanders, who served as a mentor to Bryant in the past, said that he has ended his relationship with the 22yearold and doesn't plan on speaking to him.
"I haven't spoken to the kid. I have no desire to speak to the kid. In regards to me, I can forgive, but I can't forget," Sanders said. "You can't tarnish the other things that I have going on and the other kids. It's sort of like I can't allow something to poison the fruit of many other kids. I can't do it, so I cut off those ties a long time ago."
Dez Bryant isn't the first multimillionaire athlete to cuss at an officer for being told something he didn't like. This incident just had the misfortune of being over reported.
What caught me about the story was Deion stepping away from Dez and i was about to jump Bjoern Werner Women's Jersey all over Deion because it looked so bad, but after hearing his account of the situation, i thought he did a great job of carefully criticizing Dez and letting people know he has a limit on his interactions with stars and that is negativity around kids. Deion had every reason to stick by Dez based on the liescandal, but Dez apparently did something unforgivable around kids at Deion's camp. I now understand Deion stepping away from the man. I can also see Deion's comments being put out there to try to get Jerry on the case sooner rather than later.
Sagging pants is no longer a cultural phenomenon like when it was "fashionable" in prison or the inner cities years ago. Most people are turned off by seeing men sag their pants, however, it has been stigmatized by black men and therefore, it is a problem in need of immediate correction. When a young rich black man chooses to wear his Ahmad Bradshaw Youth Jersey pants below his waist, it makes those conventionalists so uncomfortable that they have no choice but to frown and report him as a troublemaking, incorrigible thug. If affluent (majority white) people are afraid of The Big Bad Sagging Negro, stop paying them millions of dollars to catch a football.
I believe Deion took his support because he felt Dez was a failure or was going to regardless. Without any true desire to listen and stand up in a positive manner, then he can't be associated with him.
Dez should of known that sagging pants is frown www.footballcoltsproshop.com upon especially in what I could assume a very white mall(in the hood there are no malls). Rules are posted because one, few or many complained or had concern. And no business owner is willing to lose potential biz if other shoppers are offended and/or afraid. Therefore the rules get enforced. Pull the pants up and things will be alright! To them your just basically another "thug", etc. regardless of who you play for and being in the NFL might make one think even more so of that.

2013-Nov-29 - Falcons could turn to DeCoud at Safety
Falcons could turn to DeCoud at Safety
Thomas DeCoud, a third round pick out of Cal from the 2008 draft, made a big push over the offseason. He a highwonderlic guy and is not going to make any classroom mistakes.
DeCoud has major range and the striking ability his flashed on special teams last season appears to translate.
For William Moore, the second round pick from Missouri, it a matter of how quickly he pick things up. He physical and has helped his foot speed by losing 10 pounds.
Moore is just learning our system, but he has the skill set that we are looking for in a safety, Smith said. necessarily a strong safety, but the safety position. Von Hutchins is getting some run at safety.
Jamaal Fudge and Eric Brock came away with interceptions in drills on Monday. Antoine Harris is battling back from groin surgery.
is very valuable guy for us because he can play corner, nickel and we are working him at safety, Smith said. could be a utility player if he doesn't win the starting position.
we are going to put a good eye on all positions, Smitty said. best 53 are the guys Jerrell Freeman Jersey who are going to make our roster. He got escorted around the building by Arthur Blank and came up with some hilarious stuff.
CHEER MEET AND GREET/FUNDRAISER: Funds raised from the event will benefit Rally Foundation. There will be a fashion show and performances by the Atlanta Falcon Cheerleaders on Thursday.
Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders Meet and Greet this Thursday at the Tongue and Groove in Buckhead.
For you Roddy Haters: I know I don make the money NFL players make (but I aspire to that) however, when I work my butt off, when I take on extra projects, take courses to not only better myself but the organization I work for, increase my workload that causes me to work on Saturdays and some Sundays instead of bringing in another individual that will take up additional salary, you best believe I am in my boss office asking for a salary increase. Von Hutchins may win the corner spot opposite 23. Grimes to the inside with Chevis Jackson, where they both excel in planting www.footballcoltsproshop.com their feet and driving on crossing routes. We might trade current FS Coleman to pick up a DL or draft pick for next year right before the beginning of the year. We are going young DLed just does not have the range that DeCoud and Moore have. Odd man out could be traded to help shore up a position that suffers injury.
It amazing how narrow minded some fans can be when it comes to judging a player they don like. Because certain fans are upset that RWhite is holding out, they chosen to focus on any negative stat they can find to justify their position. Case in point. Some fans are focusing exclusively on his 9 dropped passes as their justification, while ignoring the 88 receptions out of 97 attempts.
What even more amazing is their refusal to consider the Falcons didn have a pass catching TE on the field most of the time, which means their were usually only 2 receivers on the line in most passing situations, and Roddy had to fight double and triple teams for most of his receptions.
I responded to one RWhite hater who said he wasn in the same league with Calvin Johnson, even though they had the same number of drops and Roddy had more total yds, receptions and was selected by both plays and cosches to the Probowl, and CJohnson wasn TOO MANY OF OUR FANS ALLOW THEIR PERSONAL AND EMOTIONAL ISSUES TO OVERRIDE ANY APPROACH TO INTELLIGENT THOUGHT AND/OR COMMON SENSE.
Not enough fans realize the impact a quality SS and FS can have on an overall DEF. Just look at the top DEF teams, and you see a SS and/or FS prominately featured. With any of the Colts Adam Vinatieri Jersey competing SS on our roster, we be able to cover the entire backside of the field, which will make our CB play far superior to last yrs. Just look at the superior secondary play that Colts Pat McAfee Jersey taken place during training camp so far. \
Any DT on our current roster will provide a better pass rush than GJackson provided last yr. And if DE JAnderson doesn improve his pass rushing skills, he be replaced by CDavis, who registered 4 sacks to Anderson 2, and in less playing time. I consider that an improvement. But even 6 year deals are in reality 34 yrs that are designed to be renoegotiated in year 34. But if the team cuts the player at that time, that when they deal with dead money that the amount of the signing bonus that hasn yet been accounted for on previous caps. The remainder accelerates to the Antoine Bethea Women's Jersey current cap year once the guy is cut.
I prefer we sign him to a 34 year deal. After that Roddy will still be in his prime so he be due another nice deal (if he still performing at a high level). I think Fitz deal was 4 yrs $40mm w/ a signing bonus of $15mm. For Roddy, maybe we look at a 4 yr 30mm w/ $1012 to sign?.

2013-Nov-29 - Eagles free agency buzz
Eagles free agency buzz
Here's a roundup of the latest news and rumors, many of which could affect the Birds. And be sure to check out our Eagles section for content from today's papers. As I mentioned yesterday, based on his body of work, Connor is not a threedown player. If he's the Eagles' primary target, it would indicate they might go with a linebackerbycommittee approach once again, with Connor playing early downs and guys like Casey Matthews and Keenan Clayton getting on the field in passing situations.Meanwhile, even though the Lions cleared some cap space yesterday, it appears that Stephen Tulloch is going to test the freeagent market."I let my agent really handle that stuff, but obviously, the Lions do want me back, and I would love to come back," Tulloch said during a Sirius XM radio interview yesterday, per the Detroit Free Press. "But at this point in my career, things have to be right. My family and my situation going on, I just want to continue to play football and get what I deserve, and that what it boils down to. And hopefully, things can work out there. He might be the Eagles' best option to upgrade at linebacker, but it sure sounds like Tulloch is going to demand a big paycheck.As for their own free agents, the Eagles tendered Antonio Dixon at a secondround level yesterday. In 2010, Dixon was the Eagles' best runstuffing defensive tackle and probably their secondbest overall lineman. He didn't stand out in limited action last year before suffering a seasonending injury. It'll be interesting to see cheap jerseys us how he fits into the team's plans going forward. I'm still not ready to rule out defensive tackle as a possibility either in free agency or early in the draft.Mario Williams is the crown jewel on defense of this freeagent class. According to John "Moon" Mullin of CSN Chicago, the Bears are the favorites to land Williams and will look to team him up with Julius Peppers on the defensive line. Of course, the rumors will fly today, and Danny O'Neil of The Seattle Times says there's a "strong buzz" www.wholesalecheapsteelersjerseys.com that cheap nfl jerseys the Seahawks are going to pursue Williams aggressively.ESPN's Adam Schefter, meanwhile, mentioned several teams, including the Eagles, when discussing Williams on SportsCenter Tuesday morning."Another deal that will happen quickly is Mario Williams, the former Houston Texans defensive end and linebacker, the top defensive free agent on Cheap Jerseys the market," Schefter said. "His deal is expected to come in around $15 million per year. You hear about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. You hear about the Philadelphia Eagles. You hear about the Chicago Bears. Lots of interest."To be clear, Schefter didn't sound like he was going on anything concrete. Perhaps he was just making the point that Williams could help any number of teams, but he did mention the Eagles.The Peyton Manning situation seems to be developing on an hourly basis. He met with Dolphins coach Joe Philbin, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The Titans and possibly the Texans could be next, per reports. And Randy Moss has agreed to a oneyear deal with Cheap Jerseys the 49ers.In a surprise move, the Texans cut right tackle Eric Winston yesterday for salary cap reasons. Winston, who had started 87 consecutive games for Houston and is only 28 years old, figures to have his share of suitors on the open market.As the Saints await word on penalties relating to the league's bounty investigation, they are apparently working hard to keep some of their own players. A league source tells Pro Football Talk that New Orleans is working "feverishly" to bring back wide receiver Marques Colston.Meanwhile, guard Carl Nicks Tweeted that the Saints have made him a "respectable" offer, and he is deciding what to do.Finally, a programming note. Because of a death in the family, I'll be out of town for the next 24 to 48 hours. I may post here and there, but will not be providing constant free agency updates, so be sure to check out our Eagles section for the latest.You can follow me on Twitter or become Hope everything is okay in the family Sheil. The Eagles need to go after Lofton or Tulloch. Conner is just an average LB who can't stay healthy. He is an upgrade over what cheap jerseys usa we have now but not by much. I will be very dissapointed if the Eagles just settle with Connor and dont get a big name LB or someone like a London Fletcher who is 37 but is a tackling machine. I can see Mario Williams becoming an Eagle but the Eagles are going to have to pay up for his services. I would like to see us get LaRon Landry and Plaxico Burress for redzone help.Dan COnnor! Another marginal backup player! The guy was a backup on an awful defense, how does this make them better?! It's not like they're strapped for cash. Andy and the FO are the worst. This team will NEVER win with this group of geniuses at the helm. This is Just like they were 'good' at WR in McNabb's prime, never signing a big www.velvetbunnys.co.uk/available-animals/ name receiver even though they were the class of the NFC for years! And what happened when they finally did? They wasted 2 years b/c they thought they were smarter than everyone. Their arrogance is Wholesale Jerseys offensive to us fans. I'm so sick of this. I can't wait until they fail this season and everyone gets fired, this is a joke.Conners athleticism isn't great (by NFL standards) but he's smart and consistent and has sound technique. Oh BTW when people write "he's instinctive" I think it meams he's smart; but, decades ago some coach didn't want his ave IQ guys to feel stupid so he called smart players "instinctive" and this became common jargon. I'm certain that their are few (none?) instinctive behaviors that help on the football field. Example: It goes against instinct for 190 pound Kurt Coleman to plow into a 240 pound RB.
