For Seattle Seahawks running back Jazz Chisholm Jersey Thomas Rawls, the spirit has always been willing but the flesh has been weak. Through no fault of his own, his two seasons of work grade out as incompletes. Like the exceptional student who just needs to apply himself more, Rawls has shown flashes of brilliance, but has never been on the field long enough to make the NFL world understand that he could fill Marshawn Lynch's shoes. In 2017, he can finally fit comfortably into the shoes that Lynch left hanging on the electrical wire over a year ago. (The Seahawks are back at training camp! Don't MISS anything as they prepare to try and return to the playoffs -- ) Whether it be the 5.6 yards per carry through 13 games in 2015 or the Seahawks single-game playoff rushing record (161 yards) in 2016, everyone sees what Rawls could be. Instead, luck -- not the Andrew variety, though he might understand Rawls pain -- has held him down. A fractured ankle in 2015 ended his season in November, while a hairline Wei-Yin Chen Jersey fracture to his fibula took away six more games the following year. "He broke his leg; guys fell on it. I don't know that you can avoid that in the sense of being durable," head coach Pete Carroll said in January. "The next injury might have been a product of it but I don't think so. He got crunched again. It wasn't the same injury. He's been pretty steady other than that." For all the lack of concern in Rawls' durability, the team focused its free agent efforts on bringing in a running back, eventually settling on Eddie Lacy but that only makes Rawls' will to be the best stronger. Cameron Maybin Jersey " He's a great benefit to the team," Rawls said during mini-camp. "And I know it's a lot of people in the backfield and it's about competition in that way in a lot of different regards. If there was a depth chart with three selective players, I look at it as Thomas Rawls, Thomas Rawls and Thomas Rawls. "I've always been in competition with myself." And those words are unequivocally true. In 2015, it was he, not Lynch, who was the best running back that season. And although, he never got on track in 2016 save for two games to start December -- Jose Urena Jersey he rushed for 173 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries -- that truth remains self-evident. And he's even a bit more explosive after having an actual offseason devoid of rehab to train. "I do feel lighter and I still feel explosive and powerful," he said. "I feel like I got faster also and I know that's one thing that I worked on. You've got to have that being a good running back in this league, so it's one thing I pride myself on." SportsLine projects Rawls to be more productive with his carries than Lacy, and if he shows that talent early, he could wind up with far more carries than expected: RuAtt RuYd RuAvg RuTD Recpt ReYd ReAvg ReTD FP* Eddie Lacy 181 663 3.7 4 19 164 8.6 1 112 Thomas Rawls 127 518 4.1 5 17 124 7.2 1 99 So while the actual depth chart reads "Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy, C.J. Prosise, Alex Collins" and so on, expect Rawls to not only retain his starting job but show the world why the Seahawks didn't sweat Lynch's retirement or comeback. Because they already had the answers to the test JT Riddle Jersey : Rawls, an exceptional student whose body just needs to apply itself more in the luck department.

The have a lot of work to do.They sit at 1-4, knowing full well that without the cooperation of kicker a few weeks back, they would still be seeking their first win. The Dolphins nearly pulled off a huge upset in Week 1 in Seattle, but moral victories don't count -- especially not to rookie head coach Adam Gase, one not prone to BS. The search to find young core players who are worthy of being in Miami for the long haul is underway, with the Dolphins reshuffling a woeful offensive Trevor Richards Jersey line this week and trying to find anyone on the roster who can cover a receiver. The recent personnel moves of top football official Mike Tannenbaum are once again under deep scrutiny and the results have not been good.Gase remains devout in his support of quarterback , but the pa ser has become a lightning rod for the fan base since being selected in the first round in 2012 and then granted with a contract extension before the 2015 season. Tannenbaum's acquisition of linebacker and already-demoted corner while trading down in the first round has produced little early dividends. Said one scout to me on Alonso: "Why is this guy considered a name player? He's not good." There's also first-round pick , who slipped in the shower and could not play Sunday as the Dolphins got spanked, at home, by the . "All of the talent on their defense is on the defensive line, but the linebackers don't make many plays and they don't have Christian Yelich Jersey any corners who can cover." -- An anonymous scout on the Dolphins This just might be rock bottom for the Dolphins. Then again, this is the franchise that fired its coach last October and went about systematically disposing coordinators and various scapegoats for the duration of the season. So you never know. Bottom line is Gase was always going to need a substantial amount of time to stabilize this team and then turn it around. That's more clear than ever. If he believes he can cull quality play out Sandy Alcantara Jersey of Tannehill, then I give him the benefit of the doubt as he has been a quarterback whisperer beyond reproach. Regardle s, this me s ain't on his hands. He inherited a team with a wealth of resources devoted to the defensive line that was built to have that anchor the team, but Miami's defense has i sues, too. Despite the presence of defensive tackle , the highest-paid defensive player in the history of the at the time of his signing in 2015, the unit lacks bite, playmakers and impact to this point. The Dolphins are tied for 27th in the league in opposing pa ser rating (101.5), while not exactly facing a litany of elite quarterbacks outside of in Week 1. The Dolphins lost to Jimmy Garoppolo/Jacoby Bri sett, , -- and, as mentioned above -- could have easily lost to . The pa s rush has been average after allowing young edge rusher to leave as a free agent and signing aging to try to compensate. Only the Browns and have allowed more plays over 20 yards.It's a similar situation to their AFC East rival, the , when you think about it. Both teams are Bryan Holaday Jersey 1-4 with two of the three worst scoring margins in the conference (only the winle s Browns, at -66, are worse). The Dolphins and Jets have suffered from too many turnovers from their quarterbacks ( is tied for most in the NFL with 10; Tannehill is third with nine), and their defenses are mirror images in many ways. They don't get the requisite pa s rush off the edge and the play of their defensive backs has been tragic at times. The Jets have allowed the highest opposing pa ser rating in the NFL and their i sues with surrendering big plays are well documented."The Jets and Miami have a lot of the same problems," said one scout who has watched both closely. "All of the talent on their defense is on the defensive line, but the linebackers don't make many plays and they don't have any corners who can cover." It's not getting any easier for the Dolphins anytime soon. Corey Dickerson Jersey The Dolphins host the and before their bye, ending a three-game home stand. It may be a struggle to get fans in the seats in the second half of the season -- a common phenomenon for owner Stephen Ro s -- and there could be more restructuring ahead in the front office yet again, as well. Fixing the roster is going to take time, and if Gase can't fix this quarterback then I'm not sure anyone can.

The president of the Cleveland Police Dave Winfield Jersey Patrolmen's A sociation has threatened to keep officers from working home games this season in the wake of Browns running back that showed a man slitting the throat of a police officer.Crowell's post came in the aftermath of the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, but the day before a gunman shot and killed five Dallas police officers.Crowell, who included the caption, "Mood: They give police all types of weapons and they continuously choose to kill us... #Weak," later deleted the post and i sued an apology."Last week was an emotional and difficult week as we saw extreme acts of violence against black men acro s our country as well as against police officers in Dallas," Crowell said in a statement. "I posted an Chase Headley Jersey image to Instagram in the midst of that emotion that I shouldn't have and immediately removed it. It was an extremely poor decision and I apologize for that mistake and for offending people." But Stephen Loomis, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's A sociation, said the "store-bought apology" wasn't nearly enough."You're a grown a s man, and you claim Rollie Fingers Jersey you were too emotional to know it was wrong? Think we'll accept your apology? Ki s my a s," Loomis told ."He needs to go to Dallas, help the families who lost their loved ones last week, write them a check, look them in the eyes and give a heartfelt apology," Loomis continued. Loomis called Crowell's Instagram post as "offensive as putting a picture of historical African-American men being hung from a tree in the '60s," adding that if Crowell doesn't go to Ozzie Smith Jersey Dallas and make a donation, "I will pull Cleveland officers, sheriffs, state troopers out of First Energy Stadium this season."Crowell on Tuesday called Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams to apologize for the post. Williams told that Crowell said he regretted the post and that he was caught up in the heat of the emotion of two black men losing their lives at the hands of the police. As it stands, the Browns have no plans to cut ties with Crowell."We have spoken to Isaiah regarding his extremely disturbing and unacceptable social media decision,'' the team said Monday in the statement. "It was completely inappropriate and we have made him aware of our high level of disappointment. Isaiah has apologized but also knows that just an apology is insufficient Tony Gwynn Jersey and that he must take steps to make a positive difference after a very negative and impactful post.''

It was thought that would evolve into the ' franchise quarterback once he was Brad Hand Jersey traded before the deadline. What wasn't expected, however, was for Garoppolo to replace an injured C.J. Beathard and lead the 49ers to four straight wins -- the most recent of which came against the AFC's third-seeded .The 49ers hung 44 on the Jags. , the player that Garoppolo was once thought to eventually replace, has of his former backup's succe s."He's done a great job," Brady said, Eric Hosmer Jersey via . "You go in there and get the opportunity to play and win games, that is what we are all here for. It was good to see and good for them to beat Jacksonville, that really helped us. I am really happy for Jimmy and he's worked really hard. It shows up when he goes out Tony Gwynn Jersey there and plays really well." Perhaps Garoppolo was a sleeper agent after all. By beating the Jaguars, Garoppolo clinched the a first-round bye in the playoffs. It's just all part of Bill Belichick's plan.Since getting the starting gig, Garoppolo has thrown for 312.5 yards per game, four touchdowns, and three interceptions. He's been helped out by a galvanized effort from the 49ers' defense, and the 49ers aren't done just yet. In 2018, the 49ers now have the ' second-round pick (in lieu of their own Rollie Fingers Jersey ) and the ' third rounder. Now that they don't have to worry about a quarterback, John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan can shore up other parts of the roster. If the 49ers get Garoppolo some weapons, the 49ers could Johnny Manziel Jersey spring back into playoff contention as early as next season. Garoppolo has clearly shown that he'll be able to his part. Tom Brady knows a little something about quarterback play, and if he thinks a guy is doing well, it stands to reason he's doing just fine.

Conventional wisdom said all along that the Broncos starting quarterback job would come down to whoever made the fewest mistakes between Martavis Bryant Jersey Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian. Sanchez was the heavy favorite before the preseason, but , especially after . , though, you better not rule out rookie Paxton Lynch. Gary Kubiak confirmed as much Sunday, telling reporters Lynch has "always been in the mix" even though he's inherently behind because he's a rookie."He's always been in the mix," Kubiak said. "I just told you guys that he's behind the other two from a knowledge standpoint, but we've been out there competing every day. Everybody is in competition to play."In his immediate postgame interview on television, Kubiak only referenced "two" different quarterbacks, appearing to indicate the starting gig would come down to Siemian and Sanchez.But once he got in front of the podium, Kubiak continued to reference three different players and said the guy Justin Hunter Jersey who is best for the team will start at quarterback. "I'm going to play the guy that I think is best for our team. We have three guys out there battling. Obviously Lynch is a young kid. He did some really good stuff tonight. He made some mistakes, too," Kubiak said. "I think I've continued to tell you guys that he is behind the others from a knowledge standpoint as far as running the group. Obviously we need to keep coming, keep bringing him along. "We're going to keep working here, find the guy that we think is best for our football team and Dan McCullers Jersey go from there."The trickiest part for the Broncos is determining how to handle the reps for Week 3. It would be lovely for Denver to give Merril Hoge Jersey Lynch some run as the starting quarterback in Week 3 to see how he fares against the best defensive players po sible and with the best offensive players po sible (multiple times on Saturday night he threw pa ses that were incomplete but probably would've been caught by the likes of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders). Snaps against defensive starters are precious in the preseason, however. Siemian needs those. So does Sanchez. Testing out Lynch in the preseason would be a gamble, and it would also potentially create false expectations for starting him moving forward Dermontti Dawson Jersey if he's the starter for Week 3. The likely path seems like a Siemian/Sanchez nod to start the season followed by a mid-season transition to Lynch. But it wouldn't be stunning to see Lynch win the job outright. Take the over on his total number of starts -- he's fully capable of winning the gig and surprising people out of the gates as a rookie.

owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on Sunday that, "Any player who disrespects the flag or does not stand for the anthem ." On Wednesday, Louis Lipps Jersey Jones , which is in when Jones joined Cowboys players in kneeling before the anthem ahead of a nationally televised game against the . So why the about face? For starters, Jones said that President Donald Trump, who certainly has more important things to concern himself with, reminded him of the Game Operations Manual, which explains how players should behave during the anthem and failure to do so could result in fines, suspensions and even lost draft picks. But the manual is an old document and the league has already stated that players won't Alejandro Villanueva Jersey be fined or suspended for demonstrating. But more than that, Jones told his players in their Wednesday meeting that his stance on the anthem is because from the rest of the team, reports ESPN.com's Todd Archer.

One player said Jones expected the Cowboys will continue to stand during the anthem. Another said the players had a better feeling for Jones' comments, because at first he wondered if Jones had turned against them, according to the source. Afterwards, Cowboys quarerback said the meeting "went well," adding that "we ironed out everything that we needed to at this time." Meanwhile, Jones told CBS Sports Radio's 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday Greg Lloyd Jersey that players are still free to expre s themselves, : "If we're going to have any recognition, it needs to be before the anthem."Jones added that while he feels the Cowboys have been sensitive to social i sues, he's also wary of alienating his fanbase. "There is a debate about standing for the flag, being disrespectful, so I am removing us from that debate," he said. It has been almost a month since Trump's remarks at an Alabama rally created this latest firestorm. "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now," the president said to a cheering crowd. "Out.

It's the offseason, which means it's that time of year again -- when we widely proclaim that this upcoming season will actually be the year the break their playoff drought. On Thursday, defensive end 's turn to jump onto the Jaguars' playoff bandwagon.According to Campbell, the Jaguars have "every piece to the puzzle.""I truly believe this team has every piece to the puzzle," "We don't need anything else."Obviously Bashaud Breeland Jersey , Campbell wasn't going to trash his own teammates. He was never going to say anything negative about the team he Khalen Saunders Jersey just joined.

Their defense is stacked and might be ready to transition from a unit with potential to a unit that cashes in on that potential. A year ago, they signed and drafted and . This year, they signed Campbell and A.J. Bouye. And don't forget about 2015 first-round pick . So, most -- if not all -- of the pieces are in place on defense.On offense, the Jaguars secured their running back of the future by drafting Leonard Fournette last month. They also drafted their new left tackle, Cam Robinson. They already Patrick Mahomes II Jersey boast two worthy receiver in and . So, the weapons are in place for a succe sful offensive breakout. And that's it, right? We're not mi sing a position or anyone else, right?Oh right, and then there's the quarterback position, which brings us to . The Jaguars' decision to give Bortles another chance -- after three underwhelming years -- is probably going Chad Henne Jersey to be the reason why they mi s out on the playoffs yet again. Unle s Bortles suddenly and drastically improves in 2017, the Jaguars can expect their playoff drought to linger on.

The Jaguars are loaded at a ton of important positions. And that should set them up to win in the future, especially if they experience yet another lackluster season.

Late during the ' narrow lo s to the on Sunday, a fracas broke out when Bears quarterback took a late hit from 49ers safety near the Bears' sideline. The end result? The ejection of Bears receivers and , and 49ers cornerback .After the game, Sherman"These are my guys," Sherman said, per ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner. "I don't care at the end of the day what the deal is -- you're gonna do all that and you let him go. And it took too long for them to let him go. So I went Patrick Mahomes II Jersey in there to grab him, and they continued to pull and jerk and grab on me. And I'm a grown man with kids; I don't care about any of that. And at the end of the day, they're gonna get punished for it. I'm a grown man; you don't grab, pull on me -- I don't put my hands on you, you don't put your hands on me. You put your hands on me, you're gonna feel me."I felt like they went over the top, and I responded with over-the-top."Take a look: Dieter Kurtenbach (@dkurtenbach) Meanwhile, Harris defended the hit that sparked the fight, saying he tried to pull up."I wasn't going out for him," Harris said. "I knew what comes with penalties and I wasn't trying to give my team a big penalty in that moment of the game. Obviously, you can Len Dawson Jersey see what happened. I felt like I laid up on him." There's no doubt the hit warranted the flag regardle s of Harris' intent. Trubisky clearly gave himself up. And Harris clearly hit him late. Christian Okoye Jersey In slow motion, however, you can kinda, maybe, sorta see what Harris is talking about? Again, there's no doubt the hit is late. He shouldn't even have initiated the hit. But he might've been trying to pull his body back as he went to the ground. It's hard to tell, because judging intent is always difficult.After the game, some Bears players insisted the hit was dirty, but It's easy to understand both sides. The hit happened right in front of the Bears. They're already guaranteed a playoff spot, so the absolute one thing they can't afford in the final weeks of the season is an an injury to a key player. Despite Trubisky's inconsistencies this season, he's still one of their most important players -- if not their most important player. Earlier this season, the Bears saw Trubisky suffer a shoulder injury on an illegal hit that forced him to mi s two games. Most teams would respond the way the Bears did.Sherman was also defending his teammate, who Damien Wilson Jersey was mostly surrounded by Bears. Was he supposed to just stand there and watch as the Bears went after his teammate? That said, it probably would've been better if Sherman hadn't gone so far as to get ejected, but you can say the same about Miller and Bellamy for the Bears.Kyle Shanahan didn't sound like he entirely disapproved of Sherman's actions."It was very clear to me he was trying to get his brother's back and I love for guys to do that as much as they can," Shanahan said. "It's definitely better when they do as much as they can and they don't get ejected." Here's the good news: Trubisky escaped an injury as the Bears try to steal the No. 2 seed away from the and mount a deep postseason run. Also good news: During the skirmish, you can see Bears guard spring into action. Long Daniel Sorensen Jersey , who hasn't played since Week 8, . Long, a three-time Pro Bowler, would be a huge addition ahead of the playoffs for the Bears.
