I turned 7 in the middle of the 1988 Bears season David Montgomery Chicago Bears Jerseys , which put me right on the cusp of what I call a sports fans Conscious Sports Life. context of the games, teams and players who already have you fanatically obsessed. Before the CSL, you get pumped up and ride the emotional waves, but you dont understand how a teams momentum fits into its greater franchise story, or sometimes even how a team fits into the league landscape. You dont really understand that an old player who just came to your team was a star earlier in his career. You dont really understand that while youve been waiting seven years for a championship, your parents have been waiting 37 years and your grandparents have been waiting 67 years.Back to 88. My CSL formation period went from probably 1989 (when I started filling in the blanks on the Cubs history because of our division title, and when the will they or wont they? talk around the Bulls began to build) to 1991 (my first CSL championship and the release of Tecmo Super Bowl), with my CSL finalization period running through the end of 1992 (second Bulls championship and my first CSL bad Bears season).In 1988, right on the cusp of that sports fan transformation Chicago Bears Jerseys Stitched , I was just beginning to understand the Bears history, but mostly that meant hearing my dad talk about the 63 championship and remembering Richie Petitbons interception.By 1988, the Bears were a sustained powerhouse, albeit with only one championship. We were riding a wave of five straight division crowns. We had the Super Bowl Shuffle and everything around 85. We had two other NFC championship games. We entered the playoffs in 85, 86 and 87 ASSUMING we would win a title, and we went into the playoffs in 88 with just about the same feeling.Heres the difference though between a CSL Bears fan in 1988 and a pre-CSL Bears fan in 1988, such as yours truly. A CSL Bears fan in 1988 knew what happened in the pre-Ditka days. They had the scars from Gibron and Dooley. They knew the horrors of 1-13. They appreciated 84-88 more than I ever could because they understood it better than I possibly could.My mindset was just as real as theirs. But it was limited. And that gave me a supernatural confidence about the Bears that was rooted in truth yet bereft of context.Okay then, lets talk about the Lions.In my mind, the Lions are one of the two saddest franchises in the NFL David Montgomery Jersey 2019 , along with the Browns. Those are the only two teams that existed prior to the Super Bowl to never play in a Super Bowl. The Browns last won an NFL championship in 1964, but you have to go back even further to see Detroits last NFL title. That would be 1957, the franchises third title in six years, and all with Bears-castaway and Hall of Famer Bobby Layne at quarterback, no less.Since 1957, Detroits best sustained run of success came in the 1990s with Barry Sanders, Herman Moore, Chris Spielman and a host of average QBs. The Lions went to the playoffs six times between 1991 and 1999, peaking with an appearance in the 1991 NFC championship game.The point is David Montgomery Jersey Color Rush , any fan with any context knows the Lions are like a hermit alcoholic: they pose no danger to anyone but themselves. Bears fans over the age of, I dunno, 15 probably dont sweat the Lions at all.The problem is that young Lions fans dont have that context, and we are now in danger of a new generation of Lions fans growing up believing that they own the Bears.Seriously, check out the smack talk Lions fans lay on Twitter and elsewhere about the Bears. Our WCG colleague Aaron Leming is duly fighting back, looking like Neo when he realizes he can control the Matrix.Yet from the perspective of Lions fans, Leming and others like us dont look like Neo at the end of the Matrix. To them, we look like Neo jumping off the roof on his first attempt and crashing to the ground.Can you blame them? They are 9-1 against us since 2013. Nine and one. Thats five seasons! Thats the equivalent of seven-year-old Jack getting amped in 88 because of everything since 84!The trend started bothering me entering the first Lions game of 2016. I wrote a piece here called We need to talk about the Lions, and sure enough the Bears went out and knocked off Detroit by three points. I thought it was something to build on. Instead it was a blip in a hideous chart.Seriously White David Montgomery Jersey , look at this madness:Screenshot from Pro Football Reference.The non-head-to-head picture is rough too. Since our last playoff appearance in 2010, the Lions have the edge over us in wins (60-50), playoff seasons (3-0), winning seasons (4-1) and 10-win seasons (2-1).Oh, and heres the worst one.Last place finishes, NFC North, since 2011:Bears: 4Vikings: 2Lions: 1Packers: 0Thats right: we are the NFC Norths most frequent cellar-dweller since 2011. And with no NFC North team reaching the Super Bowl in that time, a pre-CSL Lions fan actually thinks he/she roots for a WINNER.Its enough to make you sick.And thats why Im stoked for Sunday.One of the best experiences as a sports fan is seeing a young, hungry Youth Tom Waddle Jerseys , momentum-shifting team come along and start flipping depressing trends like an Othello board. Obviously there are big trends like winning our first Super Bowl since 1985, reaching our first postseason since 2010 and bagging our first winning record since 2012.Then there are the seemingly smaller yet in many ways more personal trends that speak to the larger experience of fandom. One of those trends is getting the Rodgers monkey off our backs. Thats still to come.Another is digging ourselves out of this embarrassing Lions rut.The Lions problem is real. The change starts Sunday.To my fellow CSL Bears fans, your smiles are coming.---Jack M Silverstein is Windy City Gridirons Bears historian, and author of How The GOAT Was Built: 6 Life Lessons From the 1996 Chicago Bulls. He is the proprietor of Chicago sports history Instagram A Shot on Ehlo. Say hey at @readjack. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer wasnt the only person who thought that last Mondays 54-51 Rams win over the Chiefs was not for them and those people should be happier with Thursdays game between the Lions and Bears.Were into the second quarter in Detroit and neither team has put any points on the board.Bears quarterback Chase Daniel is 7-of-9 for 39 yards in his first start since 2014, but the longest Bears gain of the day came on a penalty. Lions safety Glover Quin hit Daniel in the head after Daniel slid to the ground on a scramble, but the Bears werent able to capitalize on a trip into Lions territory because tight end Trey Burton lost a fumble on the first play of the second quarter.The Lions, who are playing without running back Kerryon Johnson and wide receiver Marvin Jones, picked up 52 yards of offense around three punts.

The second day of the 2019 NFL Draft was exactly what we were all hoping for: more surprises Jerry Tillery Jersey 2019 , quicker picks, and HELLA trades."The second day of the 2019 NFL Draft was exactly what we were all hoping for: more surprises, quicker picks, and HELLA trades.There were four trades alone in the first six picks of the night which really set the tone for a exciting evening.The Chargers followed up their selection of defensive tackle Jerry Tillery with Nasir Adderley, a free safety from the University of Delaware at pick 60. Adderley was widely considered the top free safety in the entire draft and the fact that the Chargers were able to snag another first round talent all the way at the end of the second round was incredible.Two-for-two is always how you want to start the draft because it then allows your team to snag the best player available instead of continuing to reach on need.With pick #91 in the third round, the Bolts selected Trey Pipkins, an athletic, prototypical-NFL left tackle from Division II Sioux Falls in South Dakota.WinnersKansas City Chiefs: The Chiefs are an easy selection to the winners section because they were able to snag what should be three starting players on day two.Juan Thornhill was a favorite of mine and if the Chargers missed on Adderley White Jerry Tillery Jersey , he was my guy for them to take. With elite-elite athleticism and production, Thornhill is likely going to pair nicely with Tyrann Mathieu in the back-end of that secondary. Khalen Saunders is going to be a nightmare in the middle of that defense playing next to another athletic DT in Chris Jones. Its this pick that I believe will cause the Chargers to go for an interior offensive linemen here on day three.There other pick wasnt a pick surprise following the recent news dump of Tyreek Hill as the Chiefs selected wideout Mecole Hardman from Georgia. Hardman possesses true 4.3-speed and will likely fall right into that role as things arent looking good at all for Hills future with the team, or the NFL for that matter.New England Patriots: The defending Super Bowl Champions were able to sit back and let some stud players fall to them at each of their three picks on day two. Their first of the night was Chase Winovich, a twitchy, high-motor player from Michigan who will slot right into the void left by Trey Flowers. Running back Damien Harris was their second pick of the evening and now gives the Patriots two running backs capable of carrying the load, should they ever choose to commit to just one guy in a lead role.They ended the third round by selecting offensive tackle Yodney Cajuste out of West Virginia. This is one of the better steals from yesterday (should medicals check out) as Cajuste was widely considered a late day one/early day two selection before injuring himself during a workout. He has a meanstreak thats refreshing to watch and some nice footwork, to boot.Oh yeah, the Patriots also nabbed Joejuan Williams from Vanderbilt with pick 45. The 6-foot-4 cornerback will likely start opposite Stephon Gilmore and give the Patriots a lengthy defender to help disrupt opposing passing games.The Patriots definitely got better last night.Arizona Cardinals: The Cardinals went hard and fast out of the gate by selecting Washington cornerback the University of Hawaii in the second round. Tavai was widely regarded as an early day three pick with some upside. He was extremely productive in college (391 tackles) but most found him lacking in fundamentals that could keep him from starting in his first year or two in the NFL. While I do believe Tavai will eventually be a good LB at the next level Cheap Jerry Tillery Jersey , the pick is low in value as he would have likely been there in the third or fourth.Their second pick of the night was Boston College safety Will Harris. While Ive heard good things about Harris, better players were still on the board at that position with Chauncey Gardner-Johnson and Deionte Thompson. Also, the Lions need help at defensive end opposite newly-signed Trey Flowers and Iowas Anthony Nelson was still on the board. With end being the premium position that it is, I believe they went the wrong direction with this one.Houston Texans: Man, I just dont understand why the Texans seem to hate their quarterback. Deshaun Watson was sacked 62 times last year, most in the NFL, and they went out and reach on not one, but two offensive tackles that no one was rushing to draft where they did.First Youth Uchenna Nwosu Jerseys , Tytus Howard went at least a round too early and then they selected Max Scharping out of Northern Illinois in the third who I had as a late day three pick. I watched him closely at the Senior Bowl in January and came away thinking there was no way he could play tackle at the next level. He seemed to have bricks tied to his cleats and gave up ground in the pocket almost instantaneously. No thank you.In the second round, they grabbed cornerback Lonnie Johnson out of Kentucky. Johnson has been a late-riser in the draft process who really started to gain some steam prior to this weekend. Hes a former track star who possesses excellent height and length at 6-foot-3. With their last pick of the day, they selected Kahale Warring, a tight end out of San Diego State. Hes only played football since his senior year of high-school but he was good enough to warrant a chance at walking on before going on to lead the team in receiving yards his final two seasons. Hes also uber-athletic for his size. Coincidentally, as Im typing this article right now, I just received a notification that Texans tight end Ryan Griffin was just arrested in Nashville for vandalism and public intoxication.So, yeah, the pick of Warring looks even better.However Justin Jones Jerseys Stitched , I just cant get past their picks at offensive tackle and those two alone keep the Texans right here in the losers section. It may not be splashy, but Chargers GM Tom Telesco adds depth at another key position."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections San Diego Chargers Daily LinksSan Diego Chargers NewsSan Diego Chargers OffseasonSan Diego Chargers HistorySan Diego Chargers HumorChargers Free Agency NewsLos Angeles Chargers NewsChargers Roster MovesReport: Chargers sign QB Tyrod TaylorNew,67commentsIt may not be splashy, but Chargers GM Tom Telesco adds depth at another key position. PDTShareTweetShareShareReport: Chargers sign QB Tyrod TaylorKelvin Kuo-USA TODAY SportsIt looks like the Los Angeles Chargers are signing quarterback Tyrod Taylor as the official day of Free Agency begins. Taylor started the 2018 season as the Cleveland Browns starter, but after a shaky start and an injury in week 3, he was replaced by rookie Baker Mayfield. The rest as you know is history. Taylor brings valuable leadership and experience to the Chargers. Tyrod came into the league with Baltimore backing up Joe Flacco for four years. He then spent three years as the Buffalo Bills starter. During that time, he spent two years with current Chargers coach Anthony Lynn, who filled a variety of coaching positions in Buffalo Youth Rayshawn Jenkins Jerseys , before coming to Los Angeles. The move should mean the end for Chargers backups Geno Smith or Cardale Jones. It certainly means the Philip Rivers now has his most competent backup since, well, ever! Well keep you posted on the terms and conditions as they are released.

Eagles Week 17 regular season finale against the Washington Redskins. Hes officially been rewarded with an NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts.Despite only playing 32 defensive snaps against Washington Youth Clayton Thorson Jersey , Cox finished the game with four solo tackles, four tackles for loss, three sacks, and three quarterback hits. Just ridiculously good. Coxs efforts ultimately helped the Eagles defense pitch their first shutout since the 2014 NFL season. Coxs 10.5 sacks in 2018 mark a career high. The 28-year-old came into the season saying his goal was to be Defensive Player of the Year. That achievement will likely go to Aaron Donald instead but Cox did his best to give Donald a run for his money. (Cox also outplayed Donald when the Eagles defeated the Rams in Week 15.)The Eagles will need Cox to turn in more dominant performances in the postseason if theyre going to make another Super Bowl run. He certainly seems up for the challenge. DJacc bacc?"The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are reportedly shopping DeSean Jackson and the veteran wide receiver prefers to reunite with the Philadelphia Eagles Clayton Thorson Jersey Color Rush , according to a report from ESPN.This development lines up with a previous report from ESPN. Back in late December, Josina Anderson reported Jackson wanted to move on from the Buccaneers. She also said to keep an eye on Philly as one of Jacksons potential landing spots. NBC Sports Philadelphias John Clark also said Jackson would really like to return and play for the Eagles next season.New Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians has seemingly tried to convince Jackson to stay in Tampa but it clearly seems like Jackson doesnt want to be there anymore. The Bucs have some financial motivation to move on from Jackson as they currently projected to have the fewest cap space in the NFL at just over $2 million. Trading or releasing Jackson would create $10 million with zero dead money.Getting something in return for Jackson would obviously be preferable for the Bucs. But if teams feel like Tampa might just cut him anyway as ESPN mentioned to be the case then they might just wait for the Bucs to cut him.Its hard to imagine the Eagles wanting to give up much, if anything, in a trade for Jackson. Hes set to be a free agent after 2019. Itd seem like theyd be much more interested in him as a free agent Cheap Clayton Thorson Jersey , though. Philadelphia certainly needs to add a deep threat to their offense.Jackson turns 33 this season but hes still very much a burner. He led the NFL with 18.9 yards per reception in 2018. Itd be fun to see the Eagles give Carson Wentz a weapon like this to work with.Itd also be fun to see Jackson back in Philly. The Eagles 2008 second-round back was obviously responsible for some fun memories prior to his unceremonious release back in 2014. Not everyone is so sold on the idea of a DJacc return, though. His inconsistency and lack of effort at times caused some to sour on him. Check out this poll back from December:I think its a little interesting we continue to hear Jackson is interested in going back to Philly and not necessarily the other way around. This latest report does say that the Eagles are expected to have mutual interest, so a reunion does seem possible, but I cant help but feel like Philly is being used to help drive up Jacksons potential market. So Youth Jason Peters Jerseys , what do you say. Do you want DJacc bacc? Whats the most youd give up in a trade, if anything?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a lot of work to do on the offensive side of the ball quarterback Black Donte Moncrief Jerseys , running back, wide receiver, and the right side of the offensive line are all needs.But the tight..."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Jaguars Free Agency 2016Jaguars Film RoomNFL y very interested in Steelers TE Jesse JamesNew,61commentsESTShareTweetShareShareJaguars reportedly very interested in Steelers TE Jesse JamesPhillip G. Pavely-USA TODAY SportsThe Jacksonville Jaguars have a lot of work to do on the offensive side of the ball quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and the right side of the offensive line are all needs.But the tight end position is flying under the radar and its lowkey one of the most desperate positions on the team. Austin Seferian-Jenkins wont be with the team next year and James OShaughnessy was the groups receiving leader at just 24 catches for 214 yards last year.To that end, NFL Draft analyst Tony Pauline recently said on his podcast that the Jaguars were one of two teams very interested in Jesse James this offseason Donte Moncrief Jerseys 2019 , a tight end going into his fifth year this season and who has been steadily getting more productive each season:Presently, Im told that the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills are two teams very interested in James once he hits the open market.It would make a ton of sense for the Jaguars to be interested in a mid-tier tight end. Their draft strategy should be to get at least one before the end of Day 2 in a deep tight end crop and pair them with a Jesse James-tier player to get a lot more production out of the position than in recent years.What do you think? Would you like the Jaguars to sign Jesse James or should they go all in on a rookie and use what they have at the position? Let us know in the comments below! The Jacksonville Jaguars used their bye week to ponder the teams precarious position.Mired in a four-game losing streak and being 0-2 in the AFC South, they came to this conclusion: They must win at division rival Indianapolis (3-5) on Sunday.Its essentially a playoff atmosphere for Jacksonville (3-5) in early November.More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJaguars get help for Nick Foles with signings of WR Chris Conley, RT Cedric OgbuehiIts official: Jaguars agree to terms with Super Bowl MVP QB Nick FolesJaguars, guard A.J. Cann agree to terms on 3-year contractJaguars reportedly agree to 4-year, $88 million deal with QB Nick FolesJaguars cut 5 veterans, including defensive lineman Malik Jackson, safety Tashaun GipsonThis is a thousand percent a must-win Youth Keelan Cole Jerseys , linebacker Myles Jack said Wednesday. No. 1, its a conference game that weve got to win. And then were on a four-game losing streak, so we cant lose another game.NFL teams are usually reluctant to put too much emphasis on any one game, especially in the middle of the season. But for the Jaguars, who openly talked about having Super Bowl aspirations , they understand another loss or two likely would end their dwindling playoff hopes.We put ourselves in this situation, quarterback Blake Bortles said. We created this small margin for error by not winning football games. Weve put ourselves here. We know we still got a chance and weve got to play really well for the whole second half of the season to go where we want to go.The Jags are counting on running back Leonard Fournettes return making a significant difference.Fournette missed six of the last seven games with a strained right hamstring. He practiced in full for the first time in more than a month Monday and did the same Wednesday.Jacksonville built its offense around Fournette and hasnt been nearly as physical or effective without him. The team signed Jamaal Charles for a week and then traded for Carlos Hyde in hopes of filling the void, but neither move paid dividends.Coach Doug Marrone said he lost faith in his offensive line in London Keelan Cole Jerseys Stitched , specifically in short-yardage situations, but has since stopped short of proclaiming Fournette the teams savior.Players, though, believe Fournettes return could be a turning point.I know everybodys fired up to have him back in the lineup, Bortles said. I know Im excited to watch him run. I know guys are excited to block for him and kind of see him go. We got so used to him doing his thing last year and watching that and do everything off of that. Not having him has made us change some of the things we do, but to be able to have him back and healthy and ready to go is exciting.Marrone evaluated coaches, players and schemes during the bye week, but decided not to make any wholesale changes. He tweaked the schedule significantly Black Niles Paul Jerseys , mostly so guys wouldnt feel like things were the same after the break.Its just kind of like the atmosphere is a little tighter, Jack said. Obviously, everybody is 鈥?I wouldnt say desperate 鈥?but we just need (a victory). Its a must-win week. As the weeks go on, it just gets worse and worse. Hopefully this is the week we change it.With the sense of urgency on the rise, the Jaguars have started to unravel.There was a locker room scuffle last month following a loss to Houston, a players-only meeting the next day and then a run-in with London police over an unsettled nightclub tab.They have eight games left to save the season. It starts with a must-win game against the Colts, who have won two in a row.I dont think you can look at it as a whole eight games 鈥?weve got to win eight games in a row or six out of the eight,' Bortles said. Obviously Niles Paul Jerseys 2019 , playing Indy is a division game, and thats an important one.Its kind of like Doug talked about all week and all last week: youve got to win one to get it rolling. Its all anyones really focused on right now.
