Giving quarterbacks big money doesn’t guarantee succes

Berichtdoor zhangzk » 08 jul 2019, 09:41

The NFL’s six highest-paid quarterbacks in 2018 will be spectators this postseason. Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers ($33.5 million) Parris Campbell Jersey , Atlanta’s Matt Ryan ($30 million), Minnesota’s Kirk Cousins ($28 million), San Francisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo ($27.5 million), Detroit’s Matthew Stafford ($27 million) and Oakland’s Derek Carr ($25 million) couldn’t lead their teams to the playoffs.Only Cousins had a winning record (8-7-1), and he failed in a do-or-die game in the regular-season finale. Cousins, who received a three-year, fully guaranteed, $84 million contract, struggled in a 24-10 loss to the Chicago Bears that eliminated the Vikings.Of the top six on the salary list, only Rodgers has won a Super Bowl. Ryan is 4-6 in the playoffs Bobby Okereke Jersey , Stafford is 0-3 and Cousins is 0-1. Carr and Garoppolo haven’t made a postseason start.Among the 12 starting quarterbacks still playing, six are still under their rookie contract and another — Nick Foles — is a backup.Here’s a look at a few more numbers entering wild-card weekend:SETTING RECORDS: New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees broke his own record with a 74.4 completion percentage, the highest in a season in NFL history. … Philadelphia’s Zach Ertz set a record for most receptions by a tight end (116). … San Francisco’s George Kittle set a record for most yards receiving by a tight end (1,377). … Teams combined to score 1,371 total touchdowns, the highest total in a season. … Eight quarterbacks had a passer rating of 100 or higher, most in a season.LAST MAN STANDING: Philadelphia’s Doug Pederson is the only one of seven coaches hired in 2016 still with his team. Adam Gase (23-26, Miami), Chip Kelly (2-14, San Francisco) Khari Willis Jersey , Hue Jackson (3-36-1, Cleveland), Mike Mularkey (19-17, Tennessee), Dirk Koetter (19-29, Tampa Bay) and Ben McAdoo (13-16, Giants) all were fired, some sooner than others.WORST TO FIRST: The Bears (12-4) and Texans (11-5) won their divisions after finishing in last place in 2017. The Eagles won the Super Bowl last year after going worst-to-first in the NFC East.THE NEWCOMERS: Seven teams who weren’t in the playoffs last season qualified this year. All seven — Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas Josh Allen Jersey , Houston, Indianapolis, the Los Angeles Chargers and Seattle — will play this weekend. Since the 12-team playoff format was adopted in 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs in every season that were not in the postseason the previous year.WILD-CARD CHAMPS: Nine teams who played wild-card games have won the Super Bowl, including the 1980 Raiders, 1997 Broncos, 2000 and 2012 Ravens, 2005 Steelers, 2006 Colts, 2007 and 2011 Giants and 2010 Packers.TOUGHEST ROAD: The Eagles and Colts are each trying to become only the third No. 6 seed to win a Super Bowl Jawaan Taylor Jersey , joining the 2005 Steelers and 2010 Packers.EASIEST ROAD: Since 1975, 49 of the 86 teams (57 percent) to reach the Super Bowl were No. 1 seeds. In that span, 20 No. 2 seeds, four No. 3, nine No. 4, two No. 5 and two No. 6 made it. Over the past five years, nine of 10 No. 1 seeds played in the Super Bowl. Only the 2016 Cowboys didn’t get in.WELCOME TO THE DANCE: Four quarterbacks will make their postseason debut as starters. Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson, Chicago’s Mitchell Trubisky and Houston’s Deshaun Watson play this weekend. Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes has a bye.STINGY DEFENSE: In three of the past four seasons, the teams with the stringiest regular-season scoring defense have advanced to the Super Bowl. The Bears led the league with the fewest points allowed per game (17.7) this season. Since the beginning of his career, Marshawn Lynch showed in his interviews that he was a different kind of player. Lynch excelled on the field during his first two seasons with the Buffalo Bills Josh Oliver Jersey , but has taken “Beast Mode” to another level since joining the Seattle Seahawks. An earth-shaking touchdown run in the NFL Divisional Playoffs against New Orleans brought him into the national spotlight and turned him into an internet sensation. Now as he is being studied under the intensity of the relentless Super Bowl media, Lynch has decided to respond to their questions with simple catchphrases to convey his feelings.While these phrases have certainly been entertaining if lacking variety, many members of the media have chosen to react childishly by lambasting Lynch for his refusal to elaborate. Others have hit out at Lynch based on some misguided notion that he must use his platform to speak because it is a responsibility to his community. The most ridiculous criticism has been that Lynch has a responsibility to give reporters quotes to fill space in their columns, which completely overlooks the fact that Lynch is saying so much more by not expounding.The fact is that Marshawn Lynch gave fantastic interviews for years and they went completely overlooked by many. When he wants to be, Lynch is eloquent and quotable while maintaining the personality that many of his fans have become familiar with over the years. His decision not to be cooperative has come in the face of NFL fines and rampant criticism. Even with the league’s repeated fines, Lynch still has the support of his teammates and coach Pete Carroll and is the key to the success of the Seahawks offense. It is going to be very interesting to see what Lynch will say if he gets the opportunity to collect the Super Bowl MVP Award.
