Popular Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, one of the leagues most outspoken players, is a?fixture on The Players Tribune, elaborating on a?variety of topics both on and off the field. Cheap Spurs Jerseys Authentic . In his latest post on Thursday?night, he goes into detail about the best receivers whom hes ever covered.Sherman covers all the typical heavy hitters who?would dot just about every cornerbacks list. But the final player was an interesting one -- his own teammate, Doug Baldwin Jr.Baldwin and Sherman have been going at it since the two were teammates at Stanford, and they square off every day now in practice with Seattle. Sherman lauds Baldwins ability to think outside the box as his most dangerous asset:For Doug, it all starts at the line of scrimmage. I think he has some of the most explosive releases in the league. But also, at the top of his route, no matter what the route might be, hes equally explosive. We can talk about hand fighting and changing speeds and physicality all we want. But when it comes to Doug, its all about creativity.Football has been played for a long time. Just about everything you can try on a football field has been tried before in one form or another. But Doug is a guy who continues to push the envelope. Every day, he is looking for a new move, a new release, or a new way to delay the timing of his route. It takes incredible footwork to do that, but also a tremendous amount of discipline and athleticism.Sherman said Atlantas Julio Jones and Cincinnatis A.J. Green can jump out of the gym and showcase athleticism thats off the charts. In Pittsburghs Antonio Brown, Sherman piggybacked off a similar column written by?Denvers Chris Harris Jr. last month, noting not just Browns top-end speed but the way he subtly changes speeds to throw off defenders:Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. recently wrote a piece on The Players Tribune that, like this one, broke down the toughest receivers he has ever faced. And his assessment of Antonio Brown was spot-on. He wrote, Its kind of like in basketball when a point guard uses a little hesitation crossover to freeze the defender before exploding to the hoop.AB has mastered the subtle moves within running a route that can shake even the best cover guys in the league. Sometimes the deviation is so drastic that it looks like a double move, but its really Antonio changing his stride just enough to throw you off his trail.Rounding out the list is Arizonas Larry Fitzgerald, whom he called a do-it-all guy, and the New York Jets Brandon Marshall, who caught four passes for 89 yards and a touchdown when the two met last month at the Meadowlands.-- Brendan C. Hall Cheap NBA Jerseys .500 on the season. The Jets are now 0-5-1 in the second game of back-to-backs. The game started the same way the Vancouver game started the night before, with the Jets taking the first two penalties of the game and killing off the first, but the Oilers getting on the board first, scoring on the second man-advantage. Cheap San Antonio Spurs Jerseys . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side.http://www.cheapspursjerseys.com/ . -- Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. WASHINGTON -- Putting guys on base was easy for the Los Angeles Dodgers, especially early in the game. Getting them home, that was the problem.So after leaving `em loaded three times and missing a chance to take a commanding lead over Washington in the NL Division Series, the Dodgers headed home tied at 1-all after a 5-2 loss Sunday.Overall, LA went 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position -- 0 for 5 with the bases loaded -- and stranded 12. That gave the Dodgers an empty feeling going back to Chavez Ravine for Game 3 on Monday afternoon.Whether its a combination of their guys making good pitches or us just not getting the job done, that changes the whole game, said right fielder Josh Reddick, whose RBI single was that one hit with runners in scoring position. For the guys, Im sure theyre beating themselves up.Washington starter Tanner Roark looked very beatable, as LA got seven hits off him, including rookie shortstop Corey Seagers first-inning home run that was his second in as many games.The Dodgers left the bases loaded in the second inning and again in the third. The frustrating trend was made worse when backup Nationals catcher Jose Lobaton hit a three-run homer off Rich Hill in the fourth for a 3-2 lead.Hill tried to say the loss falls solely on him, but there was no one in the visiting clubhouse who agreed with that sentiment.Hill did have a chance at the plate. He struck out with three runners on in the second and then Chase Utley grounded out.Yasmani Grandal grounded into an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded in the third. In the fifth, again with the bases loaded, Grandal struck out and pinch hitter Howie Kendrick lined out to left.Manager Dave Roberts said his team stressed Roark, who lasted only 4 1/3 innings, but the Dodgers then didnt get a hit off the Nationals bullpen until there was one out in the ninth.We had the bases loaded, so we had some opportunities, just didnt capitalize, Roberts said.Added Seager: You did what you were looking for in getting the starter out early. Unfortunately we missed that big hit against the bullpen.Stranding 11 runners against Roark had the Dodgers wondering what could have been. Cheap Swingman Spurs Jerseys. But splitting the first two games of a series on the road gave them something of a silver lining, especially after the rain-postponed Game 2 made the wait for Game 3 at Dodger Stadium even shorter.If youve got to win two out of three, you want to have most of those games at home, and we do, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez said.HILL HANGS CURVEHill hung his head after the loss, regretting a hanging curveball he left up to Lobaton on the homer and two inside pitches that hit Nationals shortstop Danny Espinosa. The 36-year-old lefty had seven strikeouts but came out after 4 1/3 innings and was hard on himself for not executing pitches how he wanted.I believe were tied in the series now because I didnt execute, Hill said. For me its extremely disappointing.SEAGER MAKES HISTORYWith his second home run of the series, Seager tied Jim Gilliam for the most home runs in a postseason for a Dodgers rookie and joined Pee Wee Reese as the only Dodgers shortstops with multiple postseason home runs. On Friday, he went deep off Washington ace Max Scherzer.Asked to explain his success early in games, Seager said: I dont know. Luck, whatever it is.MURPHY MAKES DIFFERENCENationals 2B Daniel Murphy went 3 for 3 with 2 RBI, a walk and a run scored, drawing M-V-P chants from the sellout crowd of 43,826. Murphy tormented LA for the second straight October after helping the New York Mets advance past the Dodgers a year ago.Ever since last year he just seems to be the guy that comes up in the clutch, Reddick said. It shows what he can do this year, and playoff-wise its something special.UP NEXTIn Game 3, the Dodgers will have RHP Kenta Maeda (16-11, 3.48 ERA) on the mound against Nationals LHP Gio Gonzalez (11-11, 4.57. The Nationals are hoping Gonzalez can take advantage of the Dodgers worst-in-the-majors batting average against left-handed pitchers. Maeda led LA pitchers in wins, innings (175 2/3), strikeouts (179) and starts (32).---AP Sports Writer Howard Fendrich contributed to this report. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
