I think it’s a really good question, but it would entail probably a pretty lengthy answer, Belichick warned from the start. He was right:
The first thing we do is teach them the rules in the National Football League and in particular make them aware of the changes between the college rules and the pro rules, which there are a significant number. And we don’t really assume because we have no way of knowing how educated or uneducated they are on the rules, if they even are the same between the two — between college and professional football. So, it starts there.
Kids Takkarist McKinley Jersey It’s not often that you hear a punter referred to as a tremendous weapon. But Belichick said all of that and much more about Rams punter Johnny Hekker:
Hekker is a tremendous weapon. I mean, this guy is as good a player as I’ve ever seen at that position. He’s a tremendous weapon in his ability to punt the ball, punt it inside the 20, directional kick it, involved in fakes, can throw, can run, very athletic … He’s dangerous. Absolutely. He’s like a quarterback. He can throw. He can run. You gotta defend him like you defend one of those guys.
I just got to watch the tape, Bouye said. I need to go look at the rule book on [pass interference penalties], because you’re telling me the receiver can have his hands on me the whole way down the field, but if I look for James Conner Womens Jersey the ball and try to protect myself from being pushed, it’s a flag?
Like I said, I just have to be better. I can’t put my team in that situation. It’s a flag, I got to own up to it, find a way to get better at it.
Bouye again stressed that the officiating didn’t cost the Jaguars the game, but he would prefer a level playing field.
You all see it, Bouye said. I got players hitting me up in the NFL saying the same thing. But at the end of the day, we can’t put the blame on them. We didn’t execute good enough. They executed good enough.
Thomas Morstead’s What You Give Will Grow charity earned more than $200,000 in donations this week (even before Payton’s contribution) after a Vikings fan suggested on social media that people should make donations to the Saints punter’s charity as an appreciation for the way he played through torn cartilage in his ribs and even came out to line up as a defensive tackle on the final two-point conversion kneel-down at the end of the game.
