Percy Harvin moving to the New York Jets helps both teams. E.J. Gaines Jersey . For the Jets, they get a player that can take a simple pass play and make it a major result. Geno Smith needs a support player like Harvin so he does not have to be the reason for the offence and its success or failure. As simple as it sounds, he is so talented that you simply pitch the ball to him and let him go. The Jets play the Bills and now they have to defend Harvin; that will be a challenge. For Seattle, the best assessment I heard was addition by subtraction. Remember the Seahawks have to sign Russell Wilson as soon as next year and without Harvin money on the books it makes Wilson a guaranteed Seahawk in the near future. Then there is the subtraction from the locker room. Over time, it’s just a consistency that Harvin cant get along and over time a decision was made that his personality is not worth the possibility of on-field excellence. It only takes two or three negative personalities to suppress all others and I wonder if that was a reason. In Indianapolis it was pretty impressive what the Colts did to the Bengals in winning 27-0. The Colts had 27 first downs, the Bengals had just eight. 506 total yards to 135, 171 rushing yards to 32. And finally 40 minutes time of possession to 20. The Colts beat a Bengals team as thoroughly as I have seen in recent history and looking at what Dallas did yesterday. Dallas is the best in the NFC, the Colts are the best in the AFC. In Denver, nobody has thrown more touchdown passes than Peyton Manning. 22-26, 318 yards and four touchdowns as Denver destroyed San Francisco. When the record was broken did you notice that Manning must have high-fived or shook hands or hugged or acknowledged everyone on the team. And I mean everyone. Starters, reserve players, coaches, fans, ball boys, I mean everybody. Is he the greatest of all time? Probably, that conversation could go on forever. But after such a dramatic accomplishment Manning could have run to the 50 and accepted applause for as long as he wanted. Yet quite the opposite, he made an effort to include everyone and that was as fun to watch as any of the four touchdown passes. Classy response to success. In Buffalo, first it was Kiko Alonso gone for the year, then EJ Manual benched and now not one but two running backs out for a least four weeks. CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson are very good running backs so how will Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon do? May be a tough day next Sunday. The Jets defensive front seven is one of the best and to think they will play as well as Spiller and Jackson is unrealistic. The Bills do win their fair share of close games but if Dallas lost DeMarco Murray and Joseph Randle even they would struggle. Football luck has not been on the side of the Bills. And speaking of DeMarco Murray. It was the seventh time this year that he gained 100 or more to start a season breaking Jim Brown’s record. Hidden hero was offensive tackle Jeremey Parnell who played right tackle replacing injured Doug Free. He didnt look out of place at all and may be one of the top six offensive linemen in the league. This is a record that was held by Brown going back to 1958 so there have been many a running back playing since then. Washington at Dallas this Sunday night. Logic says it goes to eight in a row especially considering Brian Orakpo is out for the year for Washington. In Chicago, the Bears lose to the Dolphins and Brandon Marshall says it is unacceptable. Now really that is all he said. There was nothing derogatory or critical, just said this has to change. He complimented the players around him from Alshon Jeffery to Matt Forte to Martellus Bennett to the offensive line. He said nothing wrong and in some ways everything right. The Bears have the talent and would be surprised if the second half of the season was not better than the first. On offence anyway. So what is happening in Seattle? Nothing that is really that unusual. When you win a Super Bowl, trying to win it again is tougher than winning it the first time. Everyone gets paid. Not just the starters in the secondary but players get appearances and associations off the field that take away from what you want to get done on the field. And you dont realize it. It is extremely subtle and quick. For many players they come from difficult and poor backgrounds then in one year everything changes. Your childhood goal is realized and you are anything but poor. You’re rich. Is success harder to handle than adversity? No way. But it is different. Seattle is going through a process and the unknown is the length of the process; when it will end. This year or next year? And Finally, Monday night football, Houston at Pittsburgh. It just seemed that the Texans were under complete control until the last two minutes of the first half. Sometimes it is smarter to just down the ball as opposed to making something happen. Houston learned that in a most painful way. Darren Fells Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Denzel Ward Browns Jersey . Unfortunately for Toronto, that surge was too much to handle as the Stars scored six straight goals and ended the Marlies season with a 6-2 victory on Tuesday. Toronto had built a 2-0 lead on goals by Frazer McLaren and Peter Holland, but Texas charged back with a wild rally late in the second period to spark its trip to the Calder Cup final. . PETERSBURG, Fla. When it came to sport, Nelson Mandela had the ability to inspire even inspirational figures and leave global stars completely star-struck. The anti-apartheid leader, former South African president and Nobel Peace Prize winner died on Thursday at the age of 95, prompting a vast outpouring of tributes from the worlds best-known athletes and top sporting bodies. Muhammad Ali, himself a role model for so many, said Mandela inspired others to "reach for what appeared to be impossible." "What I will remember most about Mr. Mandela is that he was a man whose heart, soul and spirit could not be contained or restrained by racial and economic injustices, metal bars or the burden of hate and revenge," Ali said in a statement through his foundation. Pele wrote, "He was my hero, my friend." Tiger Woods called his meeting with Mandela in 1998 "inspiring times." "Its sad for everyone who got a chance to not only meet him, but Ive been influenced by him," Woods said. Usain Bolt posted on Twitter: "One of the greatest human beings ever." The NBAs LeBron James said: "In his 95 years, he was able to do unbelievable things not only for South Africa but for the whole world." As much as sportsmen and women loved Mandela, he in turn loved sport and appreciated its enormous potential to do good. Nowhere more than in his own country, where he famously used the 1995 Rugby World Cup to knock down the last barriers of apartheid. "A remarkable man who understood that sport could build bridges, break down walls, and reveal our common humanity," International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said in a statement to The Associated Press. The IOC would fly the Olympic flag at half-staff for three days for Mandela, he said. Bach later choked up while speaking about when he met Mandela in 1996 and asked the former political prisoner if he felt hatred toward the apartheid regime that imprisoned him for 27 years. "His immediate response was no but he saw the doubt in my eyes," Bach said on Friday. "You dont believe me? he asked. I can tell you why. If I hate I would not be a free man anymore." Bach wasnt the only one to show his emotions. Gary Player paused while speaking at a golf tournament in South Africa to compose himself and wipe away tears. "When you think of a man going to jail for all those years for doing the right thing, not the wrong thing, its hard to comprehend that a man can come out and be like that," Player said. "He was an exceptional man, just exceptional." FIFA president Sepp Blatter said he and world football were in mourning at Mandelas passing and ordered that the 209 flags of its member countries at FIFA headquarters in Switzerland also be flown at half-staff. "It is in deep mourning that I pay my respects to an extraordinary person, probably one of the greatest humanists of our time and a dear friend of mine," Blatter said. From a cricket test in Australia to basketball games in the United States, and a golf tournament in the wilderness of South Africa, Mandela was remembered by players and fans across sport with moments of silence. A keen amateur boxer and runner in his youth, Mandela understood the intricacies of rugby, football and cricket, the most popular sports in his country, but even games and players the South African wouldnt have been familiar with were touched by him. "Nelson Mandela was one of the most powerful and inspirational leaders in the world and a great friend of the NBA," league commissioner David Stern said, "... and while we mourn his passing, we know that his legacy andd quest for equality will endure. Jarvis Landry Browns Jersey. quot; Sport was never far from Mandelas mind. He was there -- often the driving force -- when South Africa returned to the Olympic family, won rugbys World Cup, won footballs African Cup and earned the right to host FIFAs World Cup in 2010, the first in Africa. It was fitting that Mandelas last appearance for an adoring public was when he greeted fans in a packed stadium on the outskirts of Soweto ahead of the 2010 World Cup final. "When he was honoured and cheered by the crowd ... it was as a man of the people, a man of their hearts, and it was one of the most moving moments I have ever experienced," Blatter said. A string of Spains World Cup winners from that year and Portugals Cristiano Ronaldo all tweeted messages of condolence, with many including photographs of themselves with Mandela. Global superstars Woods and David Beckham both made a point of meeting him when they travelled to South Africa. Woods came out of his audience with a copy of the mans autobiography and Beckham was almost reverent in their 2003 meeting. "We have lost a true gentleman and a courageous human being," Beckham said on his Facebook page. "It was truly an honour to have known a man who had genuine love for so many people." South African golfer Ernie Els said that from around 1996 onwards Mandela would call him every time he won a tournament and they once exchanged gifts after Mandela visited him at a tournament near the ex-presidents Johannesburg home. "Ive still got that picture in my office in the U.S.," Els said. "He was just the most amazing person I have ever met." But Mandelas interest in sport wasnt just for the grand occasion and the photo opportunity. Recalling his first conversation with a still imprisoned Mandela in 1986 and away from the media spotlight, former Australian prime minister Malcolm Fraser said Mandelas first question was about cricket and the man regarded as that sports greatest player. "His first remark to me, after hello, was ... Mr. Fraser, is Donald Bradman still alive?" Fraser later brought him a bat signed by Bradman. Crickets finest batsman had written "in recognition of a great unfinished innings" for Mandela on the bat. What Mandela did at that 1995 Rugby World Cup final is one of sports defining moments and enshrined in the new South Africas conscience. By pulling on the green and gold jersey of the Springboks, the national team previously all-white and associated with the apartheid regime, Mandela signalled to all South Africans that they should unite. His presentation of the trophy to the Springboks blond captain Francois Pienaar provided a lasting image of reconciliation that politics just couldnt match. "It was our privilege to have lived in this country during his lifetime," South African Rugby Union president Oregan Hoskins said. After 1995, Mandela commonly referred to the team that had previously been boycotted abroad for its associations with apartheid as "my beloved Springboks." Current Springboks captain Jean de Villiers said: "His presence at a test match just lifted the crowd and energized the team -- it is actually hard to describe." Even for New Zealands losing rugby captain on that famous June day in 1995, Sean Fitzpatrick, Mandelas effect was too momentous not to appreciate. "Afterwards, when we were driving back to our hotel crying, to see the sheer enjoyment of everyone running down the streets ... black, white, colored, whatever they were, just arm in arm celebrating sport," Fitzpatrick said. "He saw the bigger picture." NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Discount Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Jerseys NFL China NFL Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
