Calvin Ridley has heard nothing but praise for months, but the Atlanta Falcons rookie wide receiver realizes he's not immune to criticism. Such was the case following Saturday's preseason loss at Jacksonville.

Best QB never to win a playoff game? Lions’ Matthew Stafford

NFL JERSEYS
Matthew Stafford stood at the podium and looked momentarily frazzled by the question. It’s the preseason, and Stafford, who had answered questions about his newborn child and the third preseason game, wasn’t expecting it. But in the NFL, for any team with a franchise quarterback, there’s only one thing that really matters -- the postseason. For all the individual success Stafford has had in his career, the gaudy statistics he has put up and his role as the constant among eras of change in Detroit since the Lions drafted him in 2009, team success has eluded him.cheap wholesale nike nfl jerseys He wouldn’t be the first Lions player to have that happen; Barry Sanders and Calvin Johnson went through, essentially, the same thing.
