    Was it a catch? I say yes. Jared Veldheer Jersey . The way I saw it, Dez Bryant made a football move and maintained control of the ball long enough that at the very least he recovered his own fumble. After seeing the replay over and over and over, what happens is you rationalize your initial thoughts away and look at it from the point of view of the referee. The official saw Bryant lose control of the ball as the ball in his view hit the ground and therefore ruled no catch, saying the ground helped the receiver maintain control of the ball. I saw Bryants forearm in between the ball and the ground and therefore consider it a good catch. I do know by rule many say the refs got it right, when you specifically look at the words and read it slowly as I did. And maybe there is part of me that just didnt want to see a great play taken away, and maybe a part of the refs call was that he did not see the ball was secure at all times. Its open to observant speculation and opinion but I thought it was a catch. How Green Bay won the game was amazing since Aaron Rodgers was much more physically limited than I think most people anticipated. Seattle is going to benefit from watching him hop around on one leg like he did in the Dallas game because unless he heals remarkably well over the next six days he is a stationary target. It completely changes the way Seattle approaches the game defensively and what would be an immensely competitive game is now an opportunity for Seattle. The hidden hero of the Dallas game was John Kuhn, Packers fullback. When I watch a running play I rarely actually watch the running back. I kind of watch the entire line of scrimmage to see where the point of attack is to be and how the blocking pattern flows to create that point. Then you notice if there is a lead back moving into the line of scrimmage as the point of attack blocker. Kuhn had 10 great run blocks in the game, either in terms of sustaining contact or moving people back and creating space. At one point at the game Sean Lee came to mind, the Cowboys middle linebacker who was injured in Mini-camp in June and is out for the year. One of his greatest skills is taking on fullbacks, disengaging and making the play. What happened back in June effected Dallas here in January. For a team that played so well for so long this will take a while to re-group, especially with free agency pending. In Green Bay its time to move on to next week and I will be interested to see how Mike McCarthy prepares for this one in the same place where his team opened the regular season with a 36-16 loss. In Denver the Colts are on the rise, while the Broncos are fading. The loss by Dallas was so tragic because they were playing so well, while the loss by Denver was so difficult because they spend so much money on players. Where do you go from here? There will be a lot of discussion on Peyton Manning because he did not play well and did not look good. And I think those are two different aspects of evaluation. Not playing well is obvious and the video you study shows the reasons why. Not looking good is different. Denver did not look good. As a football team they were not energetic and Indianapolis looked good and had energy. Age and football dont mix. It is a terrible feeling when your mind says yes but you body does not respond to the yes command. It happens. Now the truth is that Manning in an off-game is better than 75 per cent of other NFL quarterbacks and Denver has no one I know behind him as a quality player. The job is his. This is a tough one for Manning as an older athlete - can he regain youth or should he resign to the reality of age? In the off-season, after about a month players go through a massive rejuvenation. Your body comes back, youre not tired, there is no pressure as with the new NFL agreement you cant have work contact with coaches. You bounce back in a big way from the inside out. Your passion for football comes back. That is what will happen to Manning and he will be back - especially if he sees Tom Brady win the Super Bowl again. Next year is the 50th Super Bowl in San Francisco, and its too tempting not to try. And speaking of Brady did you see him lose it against Baltimore in the first half? And did you see him get it back together in the second? Often you hear about halftime adjustments, and often its tough to determine with precision what they were. Sometimes there are none. But Josh McDaniels completely abandoned any run game and deep ball game and took five-yard passes over and over that turned into first down after first down. Sometimes the toughest thing to adjust to is to accept that you cant do something so dont even try - just move on to something else. That is coaching humility and the Patriots have it. Twice, the Ravens had a 14-point lead and could not put New England away. The win over Baltimore was as good of a win for New England as they have had in a long time. As the immensely repetitive statement says, find a way to win. New England did by throwing everything underneath, then hitting the home run to Brandon Lafell and using Julian Edelman as a quarterback to Danny Amendola at just the right time. In Seattle, Carolina surprised me. They played hard and given a different play or two it could have been a huge upset for the Panthers. Seattle will be tough to stop because they dissolved the rust on the machine that is Seahawk football. Sometimes too much time in between games is too much and you sensed that with Seattle. They were playing so well to close out the season and would have been better off with another game than having three off-week practices. Seattle will be razor sharp against Green Bay. After 256 regular season games, eight playoff games, and 32 teams from the beginning...just two games are left with four elite teams. With this any given Sunday on the horizon. Jared Veldheer Broncos Jersey . Hoffman, the former star closer, will evaluate and help co-ordinate all pitchers at Double-A, Triple-A and the big league team. Byrnes says Hoffman "will be a key part of finishing the development of our younger pitchers. Royce Freeman Jersey . - Playing a road game against a division rival raises the intensity for linebacker Clay Matthews.TORONTO -- With Toronto FCs 1-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday, TFC has now won as many games as it did all of last season and is firmly entrenched in a playoff position in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. But there was no celebrating after the final whistle blew. And that speaks volumes for how far Ryan Nelsens squad has come. Jermain Defoe scored on a penalty shot as Toronto FC entered the World Cup break on a high note with the win. "Another box ticked," as Nelsen put it. "And we moved on." "Were winning games now, we won that game 1-nil and were a wee bit disappointed to tell you truth with how we played," Nelsen said. "Thats where I hoped wed get to was to start to get the wins and the crowd would be going, We won but we didnt play very well. I was praying for that time to happen. Most of the time in the past it was just praying for wins." Toronto, now undefeated in four MLS games, improved to 6-4-1 and jumped from sixth to fourth in the East with several games in hand. Defoes goal came in the 27th minute, awarded when Nick Hagglund was pulled down in the box. The former Tottenham Hotspur star stepped up and slotted the ball to the far left corner, to the delight of the capacity crowd of 22,591 at sun-soaked BMO Field. It was Defoes seventh goal with Toronto and fourth game winner, one shy of the franchise record. "Ive enjoyed it," Defoe said, reflecting on his time in the MLS. "As a forward, I try to get off to a good start and hopefully relax and enjoy my football, and then I know the goals will come. Luckily the goals have come. "Before you come you can never imagine what its going to be like. But its just been amazing, lucky to be at such a good club, where the players get treated right, playing with good players, a lot of young players, theres a good team chemistry, team spirit which is always important. And I believe that we can do something special this year." It was a strong afternoon for Hagglund, a 21-year-old rookie drafted 10th overall by TFC last year. The former Xavier University defender had several scoring chances, including two in less than a minute midway through the first half. On the first, he forced the Jon Busch to make a diving save. The second, he stretched for a volley that he fired just wide of the net. "I think hes icing his groin at the moment from that volley," Nelsen said, laughing. ";Hes just a lovely guy whos not afraid of any occasion. Josey Jewell Jersey. He kind of puffs his chest and just goes for it. Hes just that type of personality. Those types of personalities go a long way not just in soccer but in life. Thats why hes just a pleasure to have around the place." Nelsen said they spotted something special in the defender, which is why the club moved up in the draft to acquire him. "Just that fearlessness, which in my opinion, gets you a long way in life," Nelsen said. "We saw that in him when we interviewed him, we saw that in him when he played. Hes progressing exactly how we dreamed he would be, to tell you the truth. Hell only get better." Hagglund almost scored in the 68th off a free kick after some angry moments from Nelsen and his players. Newcomer Dominic Oduro was sprinting onto a pass in the air that San Joses Clarence Goodson reached up and stopped with his hand. Toronto players were arguing for a red card, but were awarded a free kick instead, which Hagglund headed just wide of the post. "Its been a roller-coaster," Hagglund said of his rookie season. "Its been fun just to get to play with the guys. What a great group, and Nelsen has done nothing but great things, and encouraged me and pushed me forward, and put me in positions where I have to grow and learn and its been exciting." Oduro, acquired in a trade Friday that sent Alvaro Rey to the Columbus Crew, came on in the 64th minute, and the fans soon got to see the blistering speed for which the Ghanian midfield/forward is known. "Hes direct, quick," Defoe said of his new teammate. "I enjoyed (playing with him)." The colourful Oduro is also known for the elaborate designs he shaves into his hair, still had Columbus-yellow stripes died into his hair on either side of his mohawk. The 28-year-old had a career-high 13 goals last season, including two against Toronto. Brazilian Gilberto had been pencilled into the starting lineup, but was replaced by Kyle Bekker just prior to kickoff after Gilberto was injured during warmup. Toronto doesnt play another league game until June 27 when they travel to New York to face the Red Bulls. NOTES: Toronto midfielder Michael Bradley (the U.S.), and goalie Julio Cesar (Brazil) are playing for their countries in the World Cup in Brazil. . . Retired striker Danny Koevermans, in Toronto with his family for vacation, was at the game. Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap JerseysCheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '
