Human beings should not be able to move like Texans running back D’Onta Foreman.
The 6-foot, 233-pounder moves like a much smaller man as he demonstrated Wednesday night by hurdling poor Panthers defensive back Cole Luke.
Foreman ran for 2,028 yards and 15 touchdowns last season at Texas and was a third-round pick of the Texans in April’s NFL Draft.
If Wednesday’s match-up with the Panthers is any indication, Foreman is looking to prove he should have been drafted much higher.
It’s not to say that I knew going in that I was going to love what we were doing (with a quarterbacks coach) or what we were trying. It was just a trial-and-error kind of thing. I ended up liking a lot of the stuff that I was learning and doing.
As far as training and th the rest of my body, it’s not so much different. Training the way my arm is now? Yeah, for sure it’s different and I think it’s helping me. I feel really good throwing the ball.
Do you throw as much in the offseason now as you did three or four years ago when you were younger?
Honestly, that’s kind of part of this. A little bit part of the program that is intensive is throwing in the offseason. That’s something I didn’t have as much of a set thought process or plan on maybe then as I do now. I used to throw maybe just a couple times a week, two or three. Now, it’s probably a little bit more than that. It’s a change-up but something that I think helped me kind of step right into (training) camp and feel no arm soreness, the general stuff that every quarterback feels. I feel like I’ve gotten ahead of the curve on that.
Tom Brady spent a busy week visiting China to promote his special line of sleepwear through Under Armour, and while there he revealed how he wants to help spread American football to the country.
Ryan has continued to step up as a leader to make sure the focus is on the upcoming year and not last season’s final game.
“When we started as a team in April, we got together before that as players down in Miami, it was time to move on. It was time to look forward,” Ryan said.
Ryan was a dominant force in 2016, throwing for 4,944 and 38 touchdowns. In the NFC title game, he stymied the Packers with four passing touchdowns, one rushing touchdown and 392 passing yards.
But can the Falcons be the first team since the Bills in 1993 to return to the Super Bowl after losing the previous one? Ryan thinks so.
“This year’s group is different and this team is different,” Ryan said. “We have to find a way to become the best football team that we can. Find ways to get better and improve. That’s what we are trying to do.
“Our focus is what is front of us. We learned a lot from last year. We’ll Buy Cheap Jerseys Online take those learning lessons with us, but we have to find a way to make this group the best group that we can be.”
Hill’s stats could dip next season. It’s hard to imagine teams will continue to kick to him, and they also have a full season’s worth of film on the unique ways the Chiefs featured him in the offense.
But Hill likely hasn’t reached his ceiling as a wide receiver either. Andy Reid Best Cheap Jerseys From China has made it clear he expects to get Hill more involved in the offense in 2017.
