Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles faithful received Foles for Christmas. The fanbase couldn’t have asked for more since the Eagles secured home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with Monday’s 19-10 victory over the Oakland Raiders at Lincoln Financial Field

Monday’s performance showed the Eagles’ success doesn’t rely on the quarterback position. Carson Wentz may have been an early MVP favorite, but Philadelphia can compete with Nick Foles under center.

Doug Pederson’s squad has a chance because of its schematic design, offensive weapons and an impressive defensive front. Great quarterback play makes life easier for everyone. It’s not a necessity to secure a Lombardi Trophy, though

However, room for error is far smaller, and this became evident during Monday’s mistake-filled affair. The overall approach does need to change.

A week ago, many believed a Foles renaissance occurred when the sixth-year signal-caller completed 63.2 percent of his passes for 237 yards and four touchdowns against a pitiful New York Giants defense. He didn’t fare nearly as well against an equally awful Raiders D. Foles connected on 50.0 percent of his passes for 163 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Safety Reggie Nelson also dropped a sure pick-six.

Foles is a downgrade from Wentz.

Duh.

The life of a backup quarterback is usually one of inconsistency and just trying to keep an offense afloat. Still, Foles has plenty of help to keep the Eagles flying high well into the playoffs.

What truly makes Philadelphia a dangerous squad moving forward is a coaching staff that is counted among the league’s best and the depth found at numerous positions.

This starts with the running attack and how it’s devised.

Philadelphia features three physical backs, and each can carry the load when called upon to do so. LeGarrette Blount leads the way with 729 rushing yards. Jay Ajayi is the team’s most explosive back, and his 6.4 yards per carry since joining the Eagles tops the league if he had enough carries to qualify. Rookie Corey Clement cemented his status among the rotation, and his four rushing touchdowns lead the group.

Pederson helps his backs by creating natural lanes and giving these punishing backs more room to run. A favorite play is known as “crunch.” Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh described the concept in the video below, courtesy of James Light Football:

The goal is to force defenders into false steps simply by reading their keys, thus creating better angles for the offensive linemen and runners.

This specific play pulls the frontside guard. The defensive tackle is taught to squeeze the gap after the blocker vacates. In doing so, he unwittingly creates more space for the oncoming wham block from the tight end.

Also, the linebacker behind the defensive tackle is reading the back through the guard. Thus, he’ll take a false step or two in the pulling guard’s direction.

Big backs often struggle with lateral movement. They’re downhill runners. These type of play calls create more space in a league where defenders close in the blink of an eye.

The play of the offensive line is crucial. Injuries have taken their toll, particularly on the left side with Halapoulivaati Vaitai at tackle and Chance Warmack at guard. But the staff does a good job playing to the group’s strengths.

Jason Kelce is arguably the game’s best center (and a Pro Bowl snub). His one-of-a-kind athleticism separates him from the rest, as seen below, per The Ringer’s Robert Mays:

Why should a coach try to bang its team’s proverbial head against the wall by trying to be physical and uproot defensive linemen when he can scheme toward his blockers’ strengths?

Kelce can move. Lane Johnson is fantastic in space. Warmack is at his best driving forward. Brandon Brooks is quite nimble at 335 pounds. Give Vaitai some help, and this group can accomplish special things.

A symbiotic relationship then forms between an offensive front and a team’s run game. Eventually, it allows the offense to expand its repertoire. For example, the Eagles scored their only offensive touchdown courtesy of an Ajayi screen pass, per the NFL:

While nothing should be taken away from Ajayi’s first career receiving touchdown, the blocks seen above are beautiful. Kelce raced downfield and led the way, while Warmack obliterated a defender.

Philadelphia claims a talented backfield, and it should be relied upon moving forward, but its success is derived from tremendous blocking schemes and an underrated front.

The passing game is a little more difficult to predict due to Foles’ inconsistency and the weak spot found at left tackle. However, the Eagles feature one of the game’s top mismatches in Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz.

Ertz ranks top three among tight ends in receptions (72) and yardage (800). He may not receive the same recognition as the New England Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski or Kansas City Chiefs’ Travis Kelce, but the Eagles offense simply couldn’t operate without him.

The fifth-year target’s versatility makes him difficult to contain.

Pederson places Ertz in many different spots. Against Oakland, the 27-year-old tight end lined up on the wing, in the slot, in-line, and motioned across the formation. A defense must account for him at all times, even though it doesn’t know where he’s going to be once Philadelphia breaks the huddle.

The Eagles feature numerous other weapons in Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith and Nelson Agholor. But they don’t present the opportunities an athletic 6’5″, 250-pound tight end does.

Even with the talent found on offense, Jim Schwartz’s defense will be Philadelphia’s calling card as it enters the postseason. Monday’s performance showed exactly why the Eagles are still dangerous even when Foles isn’t playing efficient football.

The unit forced five turnovers, sacked Derek Carr once and pressured the Raiders quarterback seven more times.

Sacks are a wonderful stat. Defenders love to bring an opposing quarterback to the ground and do their little dance. Pressure is the key, though. Pressure leads to big plays. Ronald Darby’s last-minute interception was a direct result of pressure applied by Vinny Curry, as seen below:

Curry is one of many defensive linemen the Eagles can bring. Ten-year veteran Chris Long isn’t even a starter, yet he finished with four quarterback hits, a sack and a forced fumble. First-round rookie Derek Barnett sealed the game with a fumble recovery and touchdown. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox is a monster at the point of attack and regularly controls the line of scrimmage. Timmy Jernigan and Brandon Graham can take over games, too.

Schwartz’s defensive front is filled with war daddies, and the pressure they create allows the entire defense to be more aggressive. Sometimes, the defensive backs can be too aggressive—which leads to plays like Amari Cooper’s 63-yard touchdown reception—but it’s all by design.

The defense can keep Philadelphia afloat. By attacking opposing signal-callers and making them uncomfortable, the advantage they may present over Foles can be neutralized.

The Minnesota Vikings aren’t overwhelming with Case Keenum behind center. The Los Angeles Rams are about to enter the playoffs for the first time since 2004 with an unproven second-year signal-caller. Cam Newton is the former 2015 MVP, but he’s also been sacked 33 times and intercepted 13 times. Matt Ryan hasn’t been nearly as effective with Steve Sarkisian calling the plays.

Really, the New Orleans Saints with Drew Brees is the only team the Eagles should be worried about while holding a home-field advantage.

A first-round bye will certainly help. Also, the weather may play a factor. An outdoor team like the Eagles holds a natural advantage against the three dome teams in the playoff mix. Keenum, for example, didn’t perform well against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Saturday. Goff hasn’t played a cold-weather game.

As of now, Foles and Co. will await the lowest-remaining seed out of the Wild Card Round.

Whatever the future holds, the Eagles don’t expect to do their best impression of Santa Claus with a one-and-done postseason appearance.

Jonathan Allen

Jonathan Allen

The Washington Redskins won’t bring back their first-round draft pick, Alabama defensive lineman Jonathan Allen, for the final two games of the season, Coach Jay Gruden said Monday. Instead, the team will give the defensive lineman a few more months to recover from the foot surgery that derailed his rookie season in Week 6.

“I think by the time he gets back out to practice and gets in shape, I think the season will be over,” Gruden told reporters Monday, adding that he felt the 6-foot-3, 288-pound Allen was in good shape in general but noted that “football shape” was a different standard.

The plan instead is to point toward Allen’s return for offseason workouts next spring.

Allen, whom the Redskins chose with the 17th pick overall, suffered a Lisfranc injury in the Oct. 15 victory over San Francisco and underwent surgery soon after. Redskins officials said in late November they were hopeful he’d return to the lineup. But, as Gruden indicated Monday, it appears wiser to ensure he is fully recovered before returning to the game.

Allen becomes the team’s second consecutive first-round pick to have an injury-shortened rookie season.

Wide receiver Josh Doctson, whom the Redskins selected 22nd overall in the 2016 NFL draft, appeared in just two games and caught two balls before an Achilles’ ailment sidelined him the remainder of the season.

Asked how he’d grade Allen’s rookie campaign, Gruden said: “It seems like it was so long ago that he played, I can’t really remember. He was off to a good start, really. I think his strength at the point of attack was outstanding, his ability to play the run was good and then we used him in nickel situations also, which he was pushing the pocket extremely well. Sack production didn’t really tell the story about how productive he was. I think he played very well.”

In other injury news, Gruden said that cornerback Bashaud Breeland suffered an AC joint (shoulder) sprain in Sunday’s 20-15 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, and rookie Ryan Anderson, the team’s second-round pick in the 2017 draft, injured his patella tendon (knee). He described both players as “day-to-day.” Safety Montae Nicholson remains in the NFL concussion protocol.

Cheap Cleveland Browns Jersey Wholesale From China

The Cleveland Browns are just four weeks and a little bit of luck away from owning the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

The Cleveland Browns are now 0-12 after Sunday’s road loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Cleveland is also the NFL’s lone winless team, and thanks to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo’s ability to lead his team to multiple field goals, the Browns hold what is likely an insurmountable lead for the No. 1 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The Browns would have to split their final four games – home the next to Sundays to the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens, then road games against the Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers – and have the New York Giants and 49ers each close out with four consecutive losses to lose out on the top pick.

So, with the first pick pretty much locked up – be real, with head coach Hue Jackson in charge the Browns are not getting to two wins this season – fans can comfortably turn their attention to the Lone Star state, where the Houston Texans are sitting in the No. 8 position in the draft.

The Browns, of course, hold Houston’s first-round pick (as well as the Texans second-round pick) in the upcoming draft, so the fate of the Texans is very much on the mind of the Browns.

Houston closes out the season with games against the 49ers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts.

In a perfect world, Garoppolo leads the 49ers to just enough field goals this Sunday to take down the Texans. The Jaguars and Steelers and both in the playoff race, so they will not be taking the day off against Houston. It is only the season finale, where neither the Texans or Colts will have anything to play for, that looks worrisome.

It is highly unlikely that the 49ers or Giants will catch the Texans, but a Colts win in Week 17 would be a big help, as would a win somewhere along the way from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Browns could further help their cause by dropping their Christmas Eve game to the Chicago Bears.

As it stands, the Browns are going to have two picks among the first 10 selections, and with a little luck the Texans pick could be as high as No. 4 or No. 5, which would make for quite an opening night of the draft.

While you ponder that, Browns fans, let’s take a dive into the weekly NFL power rankings.

The Browns have put in a considerable amount of hard work to get where they are. With a little bit of luck, and the continued mismanagement of Jackson, the Browns are going to be in a prime position come draft weekend.

Cheap Oakland Raiders Jersey Wholesale From China For Outlet

Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch

OAKLAND, Calif. — Riding the legs of Marshawn Lynch, while holding on for dear life all day against a battered New York Giants team, the Oakland Raiders pulled out a 24-17 victory Sunday at the Oakland Coliseum. The win sets up a showdown for first place in the AFC West next week at Kansas City.

What it means: After a 2-4 start, the Raiders are at .500 for the first time since Week 4, when they were 2-2 and in the midst of a four-game losing streak from which they have been playing catchup ever since. There is now also a three-way tie for first place in the AFC West between the Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs at 6-6. The three teams are 1-1 against each other thus far this season.

What I liked: The Raiders defense got off to an extremely fast start. They forced three straight three-and-outs to start the game and were in line for a fourth straight, save for Denico Autry jumping offside. At halftime, the Raiders had allowed only 100 yards of total offense to the Giants, on 30 plays, and limited them to just 2-of-7 on third-down conversions. Oakland also had two sacks of Geno Smith in the first half.

What I didn’t like: How cute the Raiders got offensively after Lynch ran wild through the Giants on the first series. True, it did look as though Lynch tweaked something on his 51-yard touchdown run, but he was not in the game for the next two offensive series. Instead, receiver Cordarrelle Patterson was running the ball on third-and-short. By the time Lynch returned, the Raiders’ offense was backfiring all over the field. Yeah, missing your top two receivers will have that effect.

Fantasy fallout: With Michael Crabtree serving a one-game suspension and Amari Cooper out with a concussion and left ankle injury, the Raiders’ WR corps was depleted. Then TE Jared Cook got nicked up on a tackle. Leave it to Lynch, then, who with 101 yards on the ground went over 100 yards for the first time since Oct. 22, 2015, when he had 122 yards for the Seattle Seahawks against the San Francisco 49ers. Lynch also caught two passes for 20 yards to go with his 51-yard TD run.

Mack attack: Khalil Mack put on a clinic with a pretty strip-sack of Smith in which he recovered his own forced fumble on a play that began at the Raiders’ 4-yard line late in the first half. It was sack No. 7.5 for Mack, who leads Oakland, as Mack simply swallowed up Smith and took the ball from him as the two fell to the grass.

What’s next: The Raiders, who have already defeated the Chiefs this season, play at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday against Kansas City, which has lost six of its past seven games to fall to 6-6. The Raiders have not swept the Chiefs since 2012.

Cheap New York Jets Jersey From China For Sale

Josh McCown

Josh McCown

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — This was a game in which a team could have lied down on its coach. The New York Jets were down two touchdowns to the Kansas City Chiefs before five minutes had even run off the clock. It would have been easy to quit on coach Todd Bowles.

Instead, the Jets roared back and fought for Bowles, beating the reeling and undisciplined Chiefs 38-31 in an unmemorable return for former Jet Darrelle Revis. While an ineffective Revis sat out the second half, the Jets finally got over their fourth-quarter woes to win just their second game in their last seven.

At 5-7 in the up-in-the-air AFC, the Jets play at Denver and New Orleans before hosting San Diego and finishing up in Foxborough. It may be a “Dumb and Dumber” chance, but the Jets still have a chance at the playoffs.

It is a credit to their coach, who is likely fighting for his job and watched his team score a season high in points in an effort to save it.

“I know how this thing goes,” said quarterback Josh McCown, who threw for 331 yards, threw a touchdown and rushed for two more. “If we weren’t doing that, you guys would be blaming him or somebody would be blaming him. It is hard not to give him the credit.”

While the other MetLife Stadium tenant, the Giants, appear as if they are about to dump their coach, Ben McAdoo, Bowles’ future is less clear. The Jets were supposed to be ripping a page out the Philadelphia 76ers’ “process” handbook, tanking for a top draft pick. Instead, they have fought, even as they remain a tad short on talent.

While Revis was mostly a nonfactor for the Chiefs in the first half and sat out the second half, the Jets’ corners had no answers for the Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill, who ran free all day.

On the Jets’ side, wideout Jermaine Kearse was a beast, going for nine catches and 157 yards. Routinely, Kearse, quarterback Josh McCown and the Jets converted on third downs.

Bowles has committed to McCown all year, not liking his younger choices. McCown again showed why he is a pro. While not a great player, he is serviceable. Revis and the Chiefs had no answers for him, and they lost their composure as corner Marcus Peters tossed a penalty flag into the seats. Peters’ form was not up to McCown’s.

McCown went 26-for-36 for 331 yards, throwing one touchdown and running for two others. His 1-yard sneak for a score just prior to the two-minute warning gave the Jets the lead. It gave their coach a little more breathing room — and even a chance at the playoffs.

“To come out of one of these finally, it is refreshing,” Bowles said.

Cheap Los Angeles Rams Jersey Wholesale From China Free Shipping

Los Angeles Rams

Los Angeles Rams

After a 4-12 finish last year, the Los Angeles Rams are in the midst of an eye-popping turnaround with a 7-2 this season. One big reason for that is quarterback Jared Goff’s rebound from an abysmal rookie campaign.

He’s revived his career this season — throwing for 2,385 yards to go along with 16 touchdown and only four interceptions in nine games.

He posted a 63.6 passer rating in seven games last season. That’s up to a 101.5 rating this year, the second-largest improvement over two seasons in NFL history, according to NFL research.

Those numbers are no accident. The 23-year-old is playing with confidence and authority under new head coach Sean McVay — traits you didn’t see when Jeff Fisher was in Goff’s ear. He’s playing the best football of his career so far, and spurring the Rams’ playoff push.

Goff has reinvigorated Los Angeles’ offense by successfully taking shots down field, spreading the ball around to a newly loaded group of playmakers, and by avoiding back-breaking turnovers.
The deep pass is working for Goff

Last season, Goff only completed four deep passes (20 yards or more) on 205 total attempts in his seven starts. This season, prior to the Rams’ Week 10 matchup against the Houston Texans, Goff held a 104.7 deep passer rating, which is 10th-best among quarterbacks —according to Pro Football Focus. He was 2-for-3 on deep shots last week against the Texans.

He’s completed nine passes this season that traveled 40 yards or more through the air, which is tied for a league-high. The Rams’ offensive line, anchored by left tackle Andrew Whitworth, a free agent addition last spring, has done a great job of providing clean pockets. Whitworth has five games this season where he hasn’t allowed a single pressure to get to his quarterback, including the last two weeks. Goff has only been sacked 13 times in nine games.

When the Rams’ offensive line gives Goff ample time to survey the field and make throws, he’ll take shots down the field. Just watch this 94-yard touchdown pass to Robert Woods last week.

Woods ran a post route and made cornerback Johnathan Joseph look silly.

Woods told ESPN’s Alden Gonzalez that “it’s probably my longest play in NFL, college, high school — ‘Madden,’” Woods said. “It was a big play.”

Goff is willing to target any player who runs a deep route. If that player is able to create separation, Goff will rifle a pass in his direction. Just ask Sammy Watkins, who burned the New York Giants with this 67-yard touchdown pass in Week 9.

Goff launched this pretty pass, which traveled 60 yards through the air, to Watkins — who galloped past Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Landon Collins with ease.

The Rams have players who can make big plays at any moment. And what makes Goff’s play impressive this season is that he wants to get everyone involved on splash plays.
Spreading the ball around

Los Angeles’ offense ranks in the top 10 in nearly every statical category. This team averages a league-high 32.9 points per game. What’s fascinating about this passing attack is everyone gets in on the action.

Back in October, McVay told Rich Hammond of The Orange County Register that they do not focus on targeting one player on offense.

“When you do have the variety of skill players that we have, you don’t want to just force-feed a guy,” McVay said. “So I think that enables us to be able to spread the field and use everybody.”

In nine games this season, Goff completed at least one pass to an average of 7.3 different players a game. If you’re not convinced, look at how well he spread the ball around in the Rams’ blowout victory against the Giants in Week 9.

You never know who will make a big play on this offense. It could be veteran players like Watkins, Woods, or … Tavon Austin.

Woods told Gonzalez that “this offense has so many weapons.”

“A lot of people are touching the ball,” Woods said. Austin agreed with Woods, saying “that’s the good thing about this offense.”

But opposing defenses also have to keep eyes on rookie tight end Gerald Everett and rookie receiver Cooper Kupp. In fact, New York underestimated Everett — and Goff made them pay with this 44-yard throw.

McVay has done a masterful job of surrounding Goff with talent. Goff no longer has to stare down one target and risk the possibly turning the ball over — something he hasn’t done a lot this season.
Cutting back on the mistakes

When Goff was under center for the Rams in his rookie season, every drive was a disaster waiting to happen. He committed nine turnovers in 2016, including seven interceptions in seven games.

However, Goff only amassed five turnovers so far this season, only four of those being interceptions. He has fewer turnovers than quarterbacks like Matt Ryan (11), Ben Roethlisberger (11), Carson Wentz (7), and Dak Prescott (6). Goff played mostly mistake-free football in six games and hasn’t committed a turnover over the past two games.

After the Rams defeated Houston in Week 10, McVay praised Goff’s decision making during the post-game press conference.

“He continues to gain a grasp of exactly what we’re trying to get done — the intent of the playcalls, being that extension of the coaching staff,” McVay said.

“We threw it a lot today. And when he didn’t turn over the football over at all, that’s big-time. And you feel very comfortable and confident to be able to put the game in his hands, and he’s shown why.”

Thanks to Goff’s tour de force performances this season, the Rams sit atop of the NFC West at 7-2. Los Angeles won six of its last seven matchups and the last three games by a combined score of 117-24. They own the league’s best point differential at +134 this season.

The Rams are in great position to clinch a playoff spot for the first time since 2004, and Goff is steering the team in the right direction.

Cheap Carolina Panthers Jersey From China Free Shipping

Cam Newton

Cam Newton

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Reverses, including two on one series. Deep passes — even if they were incomplete — to loosen up the defense. Receivers breaking wide open across the middle. Cam Newton running through the opponent’s secondary.

The only thing missing was the dab.

The Carolina Panthers looked a bit like the 2015 team offensively in Sunday’s 20-17 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Newton looked a bit more like the quarterback that won the league MVP award that year, minus his signature dab.

But there was plenty of emotion as Newton tried to keep the Bank of America Stadium crowd into the game, down to walking toward the stands at one point and waving his arms to fire people up.

“The past couple of games I’ve been doing a lot of self-scouting outside of football,’’ Newton said. “This is when the gurus, so to speak, when you go home and everyone is talking about football and you don’t think everyone knows or they’re questioning everything that doesn’t go right, never giving credit for what’s going right.

“But one thing that stuck with me was when the Panthers are emotionless, that’s when … good things don’t happen. So whether you got to fake it, whether you got to do whatever you got to do, if we can get the Bank of America Stadium with a pulse, that’s when we’re at our best and that’s all I was trying to do.’’

There were rough spots, mind you.

Running back Jonathan Stewart fumbled twice in Atlanta territory, keeping the final score close. The Panthers didn’t score until the final two minutes of the first half, when they got two touchdowns to erase a 10-0 lead.

And Atlanta wide receiver Julio Jones dropped a wide-open pass in the end zone that could have changed the outcome.

“Everybody gets a break once a while, don’t we?” coach Ron Rivera said.

But the move to trade No. 1 wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin to Buffalo on Tuesday to get more speed on the field had to be deemed an initial success.

“That’s one of the things that we need to have, that speed on the field going vertical,” Rivera said.

If the offense can continue to build on what it did against the defending NFC champions, with the way the league’s second-ranked defense continued to play, the Panthers (6-3) should be a threat to win the division for the fourth time in five years.

They remain half a game behind New Orleans (6-2) in the NFC South.

This one didn’t turn because of the new-look offense, though. It turned because the old-look defense stopped Atlanta (4-4) on third- and fourth-and-1 from the Carolina 35 late in the second quarter. That and a 15-yard penalty against the Falcons for a crackback block on fourth down turned the momentum, and the offense seized it.

The defense still was key during the 14-0 run as strong safety Mike Adams gave Newton and company the ball right back after Christian McCaffrey’s first rushing touchdown, a 4-yarder around the left end on a pitch after a fake to Stewart going right.

Newton then became his favorite character, “Superman,” launching himself into the air around the 3-yard line to complete a 9-yard touchdown scramble just as he often did in 2015 when Benjamin was out for the season with a torn ACL.

Newton carried a career-high 132 times for 636 yards and 10 touchdowns that year.

He’s not quite on that pace this season, but he’s now led the team in rushing four straight games and for the 27th time in his career. The only quarterbacks to do so in more games since the 1970 merger are Randall Cunningham and Michael Vick.

Newton finished with 86 yards rushing on nine carries on this overcast day, including a 34-yard run on a bootleg around the left side.

He was able to run freely in part because, with more speed on the field in McCaffrey, second-round pick Curtis Samuel and Kaelin Clay, the Falcons couldn’t stack the box and always dedicate a player to shadow the quarterback.

The running game in general was sharper as Carolina rushed for a season-high 201 yards.

It was far from perfect execution. Newton completed passes to only three receivers even though he threw to six. The tight end didn’t have a reception, and the Panthers were far from the 2015 offense that led the NFL in scoring.

But it was a good first step in life without Benjamin for an offense that scored a combined 20 points the past two games and a team looking for a new identity.

“We knew what we were gong to get from our defense,” Newton said. “Our defense has been so consistent and locked in all year. We knew if we gave those guys some type of pulse or some type of juice to get them going they were going to pin their ears back and go.

“We had some big plays that were taken away or negated, but all in all we did what we had to do to find a way to get a great team win that we needed.”
