Kraft said he was "deeply disappointed" in the comments made by Trump. "There is no greater unifier in this country than sports, and, unfortunately, nothing more divisive than politics," Kraft said in a statement. "I think our political leaders could learn a lot from the lessons of teamwork and the importance of working together toward a common goal." 6. Preston Brown is taking charge. The inside linebacker vowed to speak up more, to take ownership of this defense. So far, so good. Brown was one of the most vocal players on the field through OTA's and minicamp and seems to have a better grasp of Ryan's defense with Rob Ryan calling him a star in the making. Yes, it's all kumbaya right now. Coaches say the players get the defense; players say the coaches will take their input. A balance must be struck this season. A leader must show everyone the way on the field. GENEROUS COUSINS: Only 2 1/2 years after drafting a pair of quarterbacks, Robert Griffin III in the first round (trading a bunch of first and second round picks to get him) and Kirk Cousins in the fourth, Washington can't be quite sure what to make of its QB situation. RG3 keeps getting hurt and has yet to prove himself as cheap china jerseys a pocket passer; Cousins keeps giving the ball away. He threw three fourth quarter interceptions in a 30 20 loss at Arizona on Sunday, two games after throwing three third quarter picks in a blowout against the Giants. Cousins is merely one of many, many problems for Washington, which is 1 5 under rookie head coach Jay Gruden. "Cordy is a guy who is big in faith and so am I," Franklin said. "I just told him it's God's plan. We may not understand it. It may seem very unfair, but he's going to be fine. Cordy is a fighter. Cordy is the toughest dude I know, so cheap nfl jerseys nothing is going to hold him down too long. He'll be OK." Truth be told, this feels like a season where things could go either way. If the Saints can survive their cheap jerseys brutal early schedule, gain some early confidence and get a few breaks to go their way, another playoff run could be in the works. This team has enough young talent from oakley sunglasses sale the past three drafts to overcome cheap mlb jerseys the injuries and roster holes. But things could just as easily go south if they suffer another slow start and the injury bug continues to bite. Such is the precarious state of the roster. For the past four years, Harrison has embodied that ethos, a self made star of the highest order. The very best linebackers excel at two of the three tasks that fall to their position. They rush the passer and stop the run, like the Packers Clay Matthews and the Cowboys DeMarcus Ware, but aren especially useful cheap china jerseys in pass coverage. Or they defend the outlet throws (think Houston Brian Cushing and San Francisco Patrick Willis) but don collapse the pocket with their blitzes. Harrison does all three and forces fumbles besides, knocking more balls out with his tomahawk strips than anyone since Derrick Thomas. "He basically unblockable," says Ryan Clark, a Steelers safety. "Just watch him cheap nhl jerseys during a game: He either making a play or being held by one or more guys." Harrison was the Defensive Player of the Year in 2008, when his numbers across the board (16 sacks, 101 tackles, and seven forced fumbles) were freak show good, and he might have won the trophy again last year if his back hadn seized and cost him power. He a half foot shorter than most of the tackles trying to block him, but gets tremendous leverage from his hips and quads, a drivetrain like no one else his size. "He weight room strong but super strong in games, a lower body with insane amounts of pop," says Steve Saunders of Power Train Sports, Harrison fitness guru in Pittsburgh. "Combine that with his upper body he benches 500, close grip and James can move guys anywhere he wants.".
