Premonition of Tion Greens mom rings true

Premonition of Tion Greens mom rings true
premonition-of-tion-greens-mom-rings-true

they have this way of knowing things. Maybe it's that maternal sixth sense. But Tion Green’s mom, she just might be psychic.

The  Lions rookie running back talks to his mother, Leticia Strickland, every day. About a month back, and she was flying up from Florida to witness it., she told Green he’d make his debut against Baltimore, would score a touchdown

Green thought she was joking.

“I’m like, ‘Mom,’ “ Green said., you’re talking crazy, what are you talking about? I don’t know when I’m going to be up

But on Saturday, shortly after the Lions arrived at their team hotel in Baltimore, who let them know there was a woman downstairs claiming to be his mother., Green got a knock on his door. It was a member of the security staff

Sure enough, there she was, sitting in a rental car, fulfilling her promise., ready to take her son to PF Chang's for dinner. She had booked a flight, bought a ticket to the game

The next day, it was her prophecy that was fulfilled.

Green claims he didn’t know he was playing until 90 minutes before kickoff when the inactives are officially announced. But when he returned from his customary pregame workout, his jersey was in his locker. That’s when the undrafted rookie out of Cincinnati knew he’d make his debut after being a healthy scratch the first 11 games.

Even with starter Ameer Abdullah out, Green expected his role to be limited to special teams,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/breno-giacomini-jersey-authentic]Authentic Breno Giacomini Jersey[/url], Caldwell walked up to Green on the bench., with Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner shouldering running back duties. But early in second quarter, before the team’s third offensive possession

“Hey, you ready?” Lions coach Jim Caldwell asked., young fella

Green thought Caldwell was talking to fellow rookie Kenny Golladay,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/c.j.-fiedorowicz-jersey-authentic]Authentic C. J. Fiedorowicz Jersey[/url], before the situation became clear., seated next to him on the bench

As Green entered the field for his first play, racing around the left edge for a 33-yard gain with his first carry., guard T.J. Lang headbutted the young back and told him the team needed a spark. And that’s exactly what Green provided

“The offensive the line did a phenomenal job,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/c.j.-fiedorowicz-jersey-authentic]Womens C. J. Fiedorowicz Jersey[/url], the right scheme. It was designed all week,” Green said. “We were in the right game plan, that play, outside zone. Kenny Golladay did a great job cracking Terrell Suggs, everybody else on the offensive line did a phenomenal job. I give the credit all to those guys.”, one of the greatest ever,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/ryan-griffin-jersey-authentic]Authentic Ryan Griffin Jersey[/url], (left tackle Taylor) Decker kicked his guy out

“Honestly, to tell you the truth,” Green said. “I didn’t realize I hit Golden until this morning when we were watching our film.”, it was such a blur, I didn’t even see Golden

It was Tate who made sure to snatch the ball back from the official, ensuring Green had a memento from his first NFL touchdown. He said that ball is going to his mom.

Green finished his debut outing with 11 carries for a team-high 51 yards.

“He ran pretty well,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/marcus-peters-jersey-authentic]Womens Marcus Peters Jersey[/url],” Caldwell said after the game. “He had some pretty good runs out there, made some tough runs. His touchdown run was a very good run, and I thought he did well.”, and obviously, he had a pretty nice gain there coming off the left side. He did some nice things. He got his shoulders square

It’s unclear whether the performance will lead to a continued role in the Lions’ offense, when the, but you can bet mom will be there again next week

Lions travel to Tampa, but Green said expects a lot of friends and family in the stands for the game against the Bucs., a little more than two hours from where Green grew up and Strickland lives. He didn’t offer an exact number

His biggest regret from his debut is he couldn’t do more to help his team win. But playing in front of his mom, was a meaningful consolation prize., who dreamed her son would play in the NFL

“She was the happiest woman in the world,” he said. “That was my happy moment.

It’s not exactly breaking news that the Cleveland Browns are a terrible football team. They’re 0-12 after yesterday’s loss, and they’re a near-lock to earn the first overall pick in the draft for the second consecutive season.

But I don’t know if we’re talking enough about just how historically awful this Browns of the last two years, really is., coached by Hue Jackson with a front office run by General Manager Sashi Brown and Chief Strategy Officer Paul DePodesta

With yesterday’s loss to the Chargers, the Browns are now 1-27 in their two-year rebuilding effort, in the history of the NFL., in which they were supposedly going to use statistical analysis to find innovative ways to build a roster. (DePodesta has experience doing that in baseball and is a key figure in Moneyball.) That’s not just bad, it’s historically bad: The Browns are as bad as any team has ever been

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers entered the NFL as an expansion franchise in 1976, and that expansion team is widely regarded as the worst team in NFL history. But the Bucs won two of their first 28 games, were a game better than these Browns., so even those Buccaneers, at 2-26

Will the whole Moneyball strategy work for the Browns? It’s hard to say because they’ve barely even tried yet: Step One of their strategy has been accumulating lots of draft picks, with trades netting them an extra first-round pick and two extra second-round picks in next year’s draft. But is this team actually any good at using those picks to find good players? And at developing those players once they’re in Cleveland? I have my doubts., and they’ve done that well

It seems to me that if the Browns’ brain trust knew what they were doing, there would be some signs of progress from Year 1 to Year 2. And I’m not seeing any progress from Cleveland. If there was anything for a Browns fan to be excited about yesterday, so they can’t get any credit for his accomplishments., it was the emergence of receiver Josh Gordon in his first game back from a lengthy drug suspension. But Gordon is a player the new brain trust inherited

I don’t think Jackson and the front office are a good fit together, and I think after the season the Browns need to either fire Jackson or give him enough personnel authority to sign or draft the quarterback he wants.

Or maybe Browns owner Jimmy Haslam just needs to fire everyone and start a big rebuilding effort all over again. That sounds like a mess, but 1-27 is already a mess.

Here are my other thoughts from Sunday:

The NFL is weirdly restrictive about online access to its content. The NFL is often criticized by fans for being behind the NBA and MLB in allowing fans access to content online. A good example of that came up on Sunday with this complaint from a fan who was blocked from using the NFL’s streaming service because he was at a game. “Looks like you’re in or near a stadium, streaming on your device is not available.” That’s a ridiculous rule. Fans who both pay for tickets to games and pay for access to the NFL’s streaming service are the league’s best customers. Why would a company want to deny its best customers access to its product?[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/breno-giacomini-jersey-authentic]Womens Breno Giacomini Jersey[/url], The NFL needs to enter the 21st Century.,” the message on the device said. “Due to NFL rules

The Chiefs have problems, but Alex Smith is the least of them. Despite calls to bench Smith for Patrick Mahomes, but it’s hard to see them winning in the playoffs. That’s the fault of the defense, Smith was excellent yesterday against the Jets: He had 366 yards and four touchdowns passing, which let Jets receivers Jermaine Kearse and Robby Anderson each go over 100 yards, is an absolute mess. Kansas City’s best defensive player, Eric Berry, not Smith.,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/kareem-jackson-jersey-authentic]Womens Kareem Jackson Jersey[/url], ran for 70 yards and had no turnovers. Yet the Chiefs still lost 38-31 to the Jets. The Chiefs’ defense, was lost for the season in Week One, and far from figuring out how to replace him, they seem to be getting worse on defense down the stretch. Kansas City may still win the AFC West

Rob Gronkowski should be suspended. Gronk’s cheap shot on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White was a blatantly illegal hit on an opponent who was totally unsuspecting,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/kareem-jackson-jersey-authentic]Authentic Kareem Jackson Jersey[/url], what is?,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/shane-lechler-jersey-authentic]Womens Shane Lechler Jersey[/url], long after the play was over. If that’s not the kind of thing that gets a player suspended

Teams still don’t understand late-game strategy. One of the things that fascinates me about NFL teams is how often they make obvious strategic mistakes late in games. I don’t mean things you can second-guess after the fact, I mean things that happen that as they’re happening, and that would have made it a one-possession game. The Titans should have simply kneeled down on the conversion attempt. With all the money NFL teams spend on hiring the best coaches and the best players and the best personnel people, [url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/shane-lechler-jersey-authentic]Authentic Shane Lechler Jersey[/url],I immediately ask what they were thinking. Take the Titans at the end of yesterday’s win over the Texans: With Tennessee ahead by four points and less than a minute left in the game,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/marcus-peters-jersey-authentic]Authentic Marcus Peters Jersey[/url], Derrick Henry ran for a 75-yard touchdown. That might seem like a great play, then go down so the Titans could run out the clock, as the Texans were out of timeouts. Then, after Henry’s touchdown, you’d think they’d hire someone who understands late-game decision making and advises the coaches appropriately.,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/ryan-griffin-jersey-authentic]Womens Ryan Griffin Jersey[/url], but it really wasn’t: A better play would have been to run just far enough to pick up the first down, the Titans kicked the extra point. That was a mistake, because the extra point could have been blocked, the Texans could have run it back for two points

Jim Caldwell should be on the hot seat. Caldwell signed a contract extension with the Lions before this season, Packers and Bears all had to change quarterbacks due to injuries or ineffectiveness, so perhaps his job is safe. But it shouldn’t be. In a year when the Vikings, the Lions, with the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL in Matthew Stafford, should be able to win the NFC North. Instead, who admitted after the game that he hasn’t done a good coaching job this season. Lions General Manager Bob Quinn has to think seriously about replacing Caldwell next month., Sunday’s loss to the Ravens makes it a near certainty that the Lions won’t win their division or make it to the playoffs as a wild card, either. That’s on Caldwell

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco takes flak for being boring. His calm, look no further than the postgame press conference after the Ravens defeated the Detroit Lions in Week 13., cool demeanor sometimes gets mistaken for a lack of personality. But if you were wondering if “Joe Cool” could put together a little joke

While that’s a supremely goofy thing to do, Flacco is in fact re-creating what Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston did earlier in the season to help pump up his teammates before a game.

Winston was talking about how his team needs to “eat a W,” making a W with his hand and gnawing and sucking on it in an attempt to clean it down to the bone. The video of Winston doing this instantly became a meme in the NFL world and was widely ridiculed.
