Packers intercept pass, lose game

The NFL looks terrible, and yes, the NFL has it arriving for placing its valuable item significance, expert soccer in a place to be affected by a lot of authorities whose exercising in no way ready them for this procedure. And yes, the NFL needs to end the lock out posthaste for the higher excellent of the NFL. But you realized that already.

What’s of higher attention (at least to me) is that the NFL’s popular “after further review” program, which was excessive in its perception and execution, unsuccessful presently it was required most. Anyone who viewed the Falcons-Broncos activity of the past Thursday evening understood that the on area authorities were so cowed by the establishing that they were terrified to contact anything, but replay and there were a number of replays that evening — was there to set the history immediately.

One Thursday later, replay can't identify a Natural Bay interception from a Dallas party, and somehow the landing was standing. The former ref Gerry Austin, tx, that is now an ESPN specialist, said that replay cannot be used to figure out ownership. To which we say: Huh?

So the contact on the area er, one of the phone calls on the area was permitted to take a place, and now everybody is in a dither because the Excellent United states Game has been besmirched, but really: Who can't see this coming? In 7 days 1 the alternatives refs provided the Seahawks (yep, them again) a timeout they did not have as they were struggling to ranking the successful landing. That period they unsuccessful. 7 days 2 was way more intense. 7 days 3 was so bad — how was the Ravens’ successful area objective not reviewed? as to create you chuckle out noisy.

Surely Mark Goodell will climb up down from his violence pulpit and confess what everybody else sees: That the actual refs are required, that to proceed with these out of their level alternatives is to danger invalidating the frequent period. But the actual secret is why Goodell, who statements his daily objective is to “protect the [NFL logo] shield” could have let factors decline to this absurd excessive.

Ah, well. Maybe we can use replay to evaluation the commissioner’s approach. That is supposing he had one. That is also supposing replay can be invoked in situations of widespread absurdity, which I seriously question.

Chicago Bears Improve Their Defense

Chicago Bears moved to improve their defense with the selected Friday night in the NFL Draft.

They worked in an exchange of the Washington Redskins to move up from No. 62 and No. 53 and select defensive tackle Stephen Paea, Oregon State in the second round. As part of the agreement, the Redskins Bears a fourth round, No. 127 in its entirety.

Chicago nabbed the third round of Security Chris Conte, California 93 choice.

The 6-foot-1, 295 pounds Paea was an All-American last season for the Beavers. He had 14 sacks and nine forced fumbles during his career.

Chicago is looking for help on the defensive front after the release former Pro Bowl defensive tackle Tommie Harris. Paea says he can play nose guard or fight against, and that versatility is attractive for the Bears.

Paea was an outstanding football player who was born in the island chain Vav'u the island of Tonga. The first time I attended the Snow (Utah) Community College before going to Oregon, where he started 37 of 38 games with the Beavers.

"If someone told me when I arrived here from Tonga that I would be the 53rd pick in the draft, I laughed because I was expecting the seventh inning, or at least (a little) to get to the NFL when I came here, "said Paea.

As in the NFL, which is similar to Paea chose the former Vikings star John Randle.

"I can not compare with it, but I like his style," Paea said. "About the same height and the ability to play."

Paea has suffered a torn meniscus in his knee during training for the Senior Cup in January and needed arthroscopic surgery, but said Friday night that is 100 percent. The bench press 225 pounds 49 times seen in the NFL combine.

"I'm ready to go," said Paea. "They said that I have the right player for their defense and their system. It takes only one team that you love me. ... Chicago Bears are playing the same defense, and I like to attack the defense."

Last season, he made the game Bears NFC Championship where they were beaten by the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. The Bears defense was third in points allowed offensive (256), tied for third win (35) and second in rushing defense (90 yards per game).

They now have two possible contributors to Paea and Conte.

Conte has played in 50 games for the Golden Bears and made 17 starts during his career. It developed after the passage of the cornerback to safety as a senior. The 6-foot-3, was 212 pounds Conte selected first-team all last season Pac-10, while 72 tackles.

"For me it was pretty easy. Read safety I felt much more natural to it," said Conte. "It allowed me to see the area and make calls."

And does not lack confidence.

"I always felt that was the best safety of the project," he said.

The Chief Jerry Angelo said locating free safety in the project can be difficult. The Bears have now drawn nine strong ties since 2002, including Major Wright in the third round a year ago.

"Free Safeties are like dinosaurs. Will not find them," says Angelo.

Paea, meanwhile, has also been a force for the Beavers in his last season, when he had four fumbles, had 45 tackles, six sacks and was credited with 11 stops behind the line of scrimmage.

"It's a very disruptive player," Angelo said, adding that the knee problem Paea may have damaged his draft stock, but are not a concern.

In the first round, 29th overall pick Bears Thursday stepped up their offensive line with Wisconsin Gabe Carimi.

Carimi, Wisconsin was a teammate and Nate Tice, whose father was Chicago's offensive line coach Mike. The familiarity is even more profound - the wife and mother of Mike Tice Carimi tailgated together before the games of the Badgers'.

Gabe Carimi First Round NFL


In a first round NFL draft picks that included wild and move, the Bears have allowed a little light when his turn came around 10:15 am Thursday. Bears President Jerry Angelo said last week the club was open for four or six different positions.

But if they need an extra push, the Bears took an elbow in which the Detroit Lions reinforced the already daunting line of defense against Nick Fairley with 13 overall pick.

With a series of offensive linemen being caught, the Bears talk to the Baltimore Ravens in the movement of the selection of 29 to 26, but have not eaten much.

"We dropped the ball, I dropped the ball," said Angelo. "What was done can not be undone.

"[Baltimore] did everything according to the rules."

Bears were going to trade up to get Wisconsin Gabe Carimi the other teams we could move ahead of them, but still ended up getting the No 29

The Bears did not have much choice.

Last season they gave up the league high 56 sacks, including one of the shows ill-fated offensive line in NFL history, when Jay Cutler was sacked by NFL-record nine times in the first half against the New York Giants.

Although he started last season, Chris Williams has not complied with the selection of the team has played 14 pick overall in the 2008 draft, moving from tackle to guard. And a seventh rounder flashed potential last season J'Marcus Webb, Williams seems to start from the inside, Carimi started out.

There are problems, but if Carimi is athletic enough to begin to address the left.

"Wherever they need me to bear," Carimi said Thursday, "I'll be plugged"

"Of course I believe I can play left tackle," Carimi said the NFL Combine. 'E' at the institute what they need and want to have. "

Webb finished last season on the right side, but it can be pretty athletic to swing on the left side.

Anyway, what is clear is that Carimi has the credibility and trust. He replaced Joe Thomas (third overall pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2007) in Wisconsin, and claimed the prestigious Outland Trophy, given lineman in the nation, after doing well against hunters spend much prestige as Purdue Ryan Kerrigan (Washington Redskins 16), Adrian Clayborn Iowa (20 in Tampa Bay) and Cameron Heyward, Ohio State (31 in Pittsburgh).

This is probably because he faced teammate JJ Watt (11th overall to the Houston Texans), in practice every day.

"I have a better resume to help defeat talent than anyone else, it makes me more [pro] ready," Carimi said the combine, adding that he is stronger and many began under his belt. "That's why I'm No. 1 side over there."

Thursday, asked his confidence / cockiness, Carimi said: "It 'was just my confidence in my ability to play my position.

"There will be no problem here."

Cutler had no comment on the first-round pick of the team. But his girlfriend, actress Kristin Cavallari, made a funny comment on Twitter.

"Yay, we have a linjapihdit offensive! Go Bears," he wrote.

According to statistics, in the first round were the offensive linemen had an immediate impact in recent years.

Since 2006, over 60 percent of the teams (14 of 23) than offensive linemen drafted in the first round had started 10 games and increased its protection of New York life, with 64 percent of the equipment record double-digit improvements.

It 's the key to the Bears rank dead last in the index in which the factors of the length formula of attempts to overcome the team to combine the offensive linemen penalties, sacks allowed and quarterback hurries and knockdowns.

Green Bay Packers And Minnesota Vikings


Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings historic rivalry went to another level when the future Hall of Fame quarter Brett Favre joined the Vikings in 2009.

But the Vikings probably is not a luxury Favre this season, which is currently in retirement. In fact, they have abandoned any hope of backup Tarvaris Jackson, well, that is, have no idea who will be their signal caller in 2011.

No good news given the Vikings went 6-10 last year and lost both games for a possible world champion Packers.

There are many concerns Purple and Gold this year, only two years after they made the NFC Championship Game.

If the block never ends, probably trying to get a quarterback free will. If not, some of them extending to choose the former Washington QB Jake Cabinet 12 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

They also need help at defensive end and cornerback.

As for the Packers, they are exactly the opposite.

At the launch of its Super Bowl, they still have their nucleus intact, but probably lost defensive end Cullen Jenkins questions whether free will.

Aaron Rodgers is now a quarter of an elite after languishing in the shadow of Favre for so many years in Green Bay. They also have elite cornerback Charles Woodson and linebackers combined brutal Defensive Player of the Year candidate linebacker Clay Matthews and AJ Hawk.

All in all, this would enrich the history Matchup, but it could be a blast.

Jets Steelers in AFC Championship


The NFL Network research crew has finished crunching the numbers, so here’s a look at the most notable nuggets from the Steelers’ 24-19 win over the Jets at Heinz Field.

PITTSBURGH - No matter the scheme that the Jets attempted to implement against the Steelers in the AFC title game Sunday night, one thing remained true in the opening half. "I just think we never tackled," Rex Ryan said.

Few calls stopped the Steelers in the first half of the Jets' 24-19 loss. Tailback Rashard Mendenhall rushed for 95 yards. Steeler tailbacks, wideouts and tight ends fought off tacklers to get into the secondary, forcing Darrelle Revis and Eric Smith into run-stopping responsibilities. It took an interception by safety Brodney Pool and sacks by Calvin Pace and Trevor Pryce in the third quarter to make the second half a game.

"You can't win in this league if you don't stop the run," Pryce said. "Kid (Mendenhall) was running out of his body."

Ryan and coordinator Mike Pettine, a package deal since Pettine joined the Ravens as the assistant defensive line coach to Ryan in 2002, molded the Jets into the league's third-ranked defense, at turns deferring to the other while showing differing looks. In the playoffs, Ryan became more pro-active in making final decisions, allowing their differences to dissipate under clouds of smoke from victory cigars.

They met their limit, though, against the Steelers.

Their complementary approach collected wins in playoff matches against two of the league's elite quarterbacks, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, but Ben Roethlisberger and Mendenhall were different, cobbling together a clock-eating approach that efficiently moved the ball. Roethlisberger's biggest slip, a fumble in his end zone, resulted in a safety, giving the Jets new life after a goal-line stand by the Steeler defense.

"It's difficult. We believe in every single guy on the coaching staff," Antonio Cromartie said. "We buy into everything ... but we ran out of time."

The exchanges between Ryan, on the sideline, and Pettine, above the field in the booth, are carried over cable wire and often contain colorful language on both ends. "If anybody ever recorded us on the headsets, we'd have our own reality show," Pettine said last week. "People say we're like brothers on the headset, and we've been approached after the game and they're like, 'Hey, are you and Rex OK?'"

When Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown caught a first-down pass on the first play after the two-minute warning, Ryan slammed his headset to the ground. Their game plan in the AFC title game was not good enough again.

"We didn't tackle," safety Eric Smith said. "It was just bad football."
