Alex Bregman says failing to repeat will give Astros ‘an edge’ next season

MLB JERSEYS
"To be honest with you, this year's team is better than last year's team, I believe," said third baseman Alex Bregman, who reached base 10 times in the first three games of the series, but went 0-for-9 in Games 4 and 5. "The ball's got to bounce your way in the postseason. It's tough, and we'll learn from it. Everyone in here will have a little bit of an edge to play with next year, a little bit of a chip on their shoulder, knowing that we believe we should have been back-to-back champions." Houston was trying to become the first team since the 2000 New York Yankees to win back-to-back rings. It was a quest that started back in mid-February, when the Astros kicked off their title defense amid…

Gronk? Kelce? Right now, NFL’s top tight end may be Zach Ertz

cheap nfl jerseys
It was Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz versus New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, and it was no contest. With the Eagles facing a first-and-goal at the 10-yard line late in the second quarter of Thursday's game, Ertz sold an inside route to get Jenkins' body turned and then broke for the corner in one fluid, defender-shedding motion. Suddenly wide open, Ertz easily secured the touchdown pass from quarterback Carson Wentz and then celebrated by pointing to the back of his own jersey once, and then again, with authority.nike nfl jerseys cheap china The name on that jersey doesn't get as much attention as others at the position: Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce. But Ertz is making a case for why he deserves top billing. Through six weeks, he…

How the Kirk Cousins rejection changed everything for the Jets

NFL JERSEYS
Make no mistake, the Jets wanted him badly -- so badly that they raised their initial offer, putting a three-year, $90 million contract on the table -- fully guaranteed. They saw it as a rare opportunity to acquire an established quarterback in his prime. As it turned out, their blockbuster proposal accomplished only one thing: It forced the Vikings to raise their offer from $75 million to $84 million, based on what Cousins says in an online documentary that details his decision-making process. He jumped at the Vikings' revised offer, also fully guaranteed, not even bothering to take a visit to the Jets. His decision forever changed the franchise.cheap nfl jerseys china nike "Cousins or Darnold? Me, personally, I'd take Darnold," said a longtime NFL talent evaluator, speaking on the…

Gronk 2.0? Travis Kelce doesn’t see it that way

Gronk 2.0? Travis Kelce doesn’t see it that way

NFL JERSEYS
Travis Kelce likes to watch video of great NFL tight ends, past and present, to see what he might learn from their games. He has seen much of Tony Gonzalez, his predecessor as a great tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs. And, yes, he has watched plenty of the contemporary tight end with whom he has often compared, Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots. Kelce said he doesn't see the similarities, other than both are moved around the formation as their respective coaches search for the best matchups for 260-pound players who are difficult to cover.nfl jersey cheap wholesale "When I get the ball in my hands I'm a different type of athlete," Kelce said in 2017 on the Dan Patrick radio show.

Le’Veon Bell, James Conner duo ‘can be very effective’

Le’Veon Bell, James Conner duo ‘can be very effective’

NFL JERSEYS
In an inconsistent season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have consistently praised James Conner. Several teammates publicly reveled in Conner’s 185-yard performance Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons in light of headlines swirling around Le’Veon Bell’s eventual arrival. Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva referred to Conner as an “unbelievable human being” whom he’s proud to call a teammate. But the Steelers will get a top-10 NFL player in their lineup soon enough, and he happens to play running back. Bell is an elite player regardless of what Conner does. Conner's showing that he can get hot with two big performances through five weeks only deepens the intrigue around the Steelers running back position for Week 8 against Cleveland, Bell’s targeted return game. On the surface, there isn't much downside here. Bell can only help,…
