Jack Silverstein: Bears 21 Buccaneers . Jersey

Postby linchao » Mon Feb 18, 2019 5:04 am

He’s got the magic in him: Windy City Gridiron picks Bears-Buccaneers Ryan Fitzpatrick is one of the NFL’s most heartwarming tales because he’s proof that short hot streaks will always find you work in a quarterback-starved sport. He’s evidence that teams and coaches are desperate enough to invest in him as a backup passer Blue Khalil Mack Jersey , at minimum, ignoring the various and expected turnover-laden blemishes of his career. That belief has led to another hot start for Fitzpatrick, or should I say, “Fitzmagic” as he leads the NFL in yards-per-pass-attempt at over 11. He’s galvanized an explosive offense in Tampa Bay, and the Buccaneers are one of the more surprising teams in the early goings of the 2018 season considering they had the Eagles, Saints, and Steelers on their schedule to kick things off. Something tells me the Buccaneers’ offensive success thus far is more about having one of the best pass-catching groups in the NFL featuring Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, and O.J. Howard, than it is about Fitzpatrick being an elite quarterback. He’s bound to fall back to Earth anytime now Youth Trey Burton Jersey , and very possibly against a great Bears defense on Sunday at Soldier Field. As Pennywise The Clown says: we all float down here. Here are Windy City Gridiron’s staff picks for Bears-Buccaneers.Robert Zeglinski: Bears 24 Buccaneers 17Whether it’s Fitzpatrick or Jameis Winston, an opportunistic Bears defense forces a few turnovers to galvanize a win going into the bye week.Lester A. Wiltfong Jr.: Bears 28 Buccaneers 17The Buccaneers have a talented group of receiving options that have been aiding Fitzmagic, but he won’t have the time necessary to consistently find them. Jacob Infante: Buccaneers 21 Bears 17This is depressing for me to write, but I feel that Chicago’s offense won’t be able to keep up with the high-octane Tampa Bay offense led by Fitzpatrick.Aaron Leming: Buccaneers 24 Bears 21As much as I want to pick the Bears, recent history hasn’t been kind against the Buccaneers. It comes down to scoring enough to win and I’m not confident the Bears can do that yet. Jack Silverstein: Bears 21 Buccaneers 10Four field goals by Cody Parkey, a Tarik Cohen 58-yard screen, and a Khalil Mack Truck safety cover the scoring as the Bears defense brings the curtain down on Fitzmagic with five sacks and four takeaways.Sam Householder: Buccaneers 24 Bears 16Here’s the thing: No matter which Buccaneers quarterback plays they’re both the same, and the Bears’ secondary is suspect. Meanwhile the Tampa Bay third-ranked rushing defense and 31st-ranked passing defense will make Mitchell Trubisky beat them. Have we seen evidence he can do that yet?Josh Sunderbruch: Bears 20 Buccaneers 16The Bears largely hold the Bucs to field goals, while Matt Nagy takes advantage of short fields and the defense provides a touchdown to power the Bears to 3-1 heading into the bye. Erik Duerrwaechter: Bears 31 Buccaneers 27It’s going to be a high scoring affair. With the red hot Bears defense at home going against a shaky quarterback situation in Tampa Bay, there should be plenty of sacks and takeaways to slow down whichever quarterback is in the lineup. It will also come down to if Trubisky can come through against a suspect Buccaneers secondary. E.J. Snyder: Bears 27 Buccaneers 13The Buccaneers offense is staggering a bit after their tilt with the Steelers while the Bears defense is firing on all cylinders. On the flip side http://www.authenticschicagobears.com/cheap-kyle-fuller-jersey , the Tampa Bay secondary is in shambles and for the first time in years, the Bears have enough weapons in the passing game to exploit it.Andrew Link: Bears 27 Buccaneers 20Fitzpatrick is most likely to get the start, and after Monday night’s performance, he can get rattled with pressure. Guess who’s good at pressuring the quarterback ...Patti Curl: Bears 35 Bucs 21Fitzmagic throws five touchdowns and looks good doing it. Never mind that two of them will be to Bears defenders. Trubisky moves the ball efficiently and throws for two scores, but has some ugly rushed throws with poor mechanics and a pick resulting from a catchable Dion Sims tip into the air. Bears fans beg Ryan Pace to trade Trubisky for Fitzpatrick.WhiskeyRanger: Bears 27 Buccaneers 20The Fitzmagic waned a bit last week when the Steelers were able to get some pressure on the beautifully bearded Tampa Bay quarterback. I feel like there’s a team whose primary strength lies in doing exactly that. If only I could remember who that team was? Ken Mitchell: Bears 24 Buccaneers 17Fitzmagic is no match for the Mack-Monster and company.

Back-to-back lopsided losses have given Oakland five losses in six games. The Raiders have already traded away their best player and there are reports that other key pieces could be dealt soon.Very little has gone right in the first season of coach Jon Gruden's second stint in Oakland. But as the Raiders left town for a bye week, Gruden had a message to his legion of critics calling 2018 a lost season in Oakland."I'll say this, we aren't tanking anything," Gruden said Tuesday. "I hear the hatred out there, some of the rumors that we are tanking it to get a first-round pick or a higher pick. We are not getting up at 4 o'clock in the morning to tank it. Ain't nobody tanking it. I don't know who wrote that or who said that or who thinks that Youth Aaron Lynch Jersey , but that isn't the case here. We are going to continue to work hard, continue to build our team and that was part of the message."A week off might be just what the Raiders need to change the course of a difficult season that has left the team battered physically and frustrated by the mounting losses.Oakland blew second-half leads the first three weeks to start 0-3 and then responded from a comeback, overtime win over Cleveland by getting outscored 53-13 the past two weeks in losses to the Chargers in Los Angeles and the Seattle Seahawks in London.The Raiders released linebacker Derrick Johnson on Tuesday and promoted Jason Cabinda from the practice squad to take his place but other moves could be coming with receiver Amari Cooper and safety Karl Joseph among the players reportedly available in trades.Gruden already dealt away one of general manager Reggie McKenzie's former first-round picks when he traded star edge rusher Khalil Mack to Chicago for a package of draft picks a week before the season. With the status of Cooper and Joseph in question and 2017 first-rounder Gareon Conley getting no defensive snaps last week, Gruden is dismantling the team McKenzie built.More moves could be coming over the bye week."We're still looking at the roster. We're looking around the league to find means to get better," Gruden said. "Reggie and I had a long meeting yesterday. I know that's a shock to some people. They don't think we have any meetings. I'm telling you, we're working hard to solidify this roster every day and improve ourselves and get the right people on the field. Those are decisions that we're looking at. We're going to continue to try to develop our young players. We're going to stay on the gas pedal and go as hard as we can."The frustration is mounting in the locker room with cornerback Rashaan Melvin expressing frustration this week over his lack of playing time and saying he will go back to his old technique of playing rather than play the style defensive coordinator Paul Guenther wants."I haven't talked to him yet, no. I'm sure I will," Gruden said. "I know Paul Guenther did. I heard there was a Twitter report out there. Melvin is on his seventh team, I think. He's had different techniques. Maybe he's confused, I don't know. I'll talk to him. But he has to play better. He's in a competitive situation. Perhaps he's frustrated Youth Prince Amukamara Jersey , and I can't blame him."The main priority over the bye will be getting healthy. Many of the struggles the past two weeks can be attributed to starting left guard Kelechi Osemele being out with a knee injury, right tackle Donald Penn on injured reserve with a groin injury and rookie left tackle Kolton Miller slowed by a knee injury that has contributed to him allowing six sacks in two weeks, according to Pro Football Focus.Gruden hopes to get Osemele back for the game Oct. 28 against Indianapolis and Miller should be healthier, which will be good news for quarterback Derek Carr. Carr was sacked six times against Seattle and had little time to get the ball downfield. He threw just one pass more than 10 yards downfield and had 140 of his 142 yards passing come after the catch."It was obvious that it affected the ability to drop back and look around and throw the ball," Gruden said. "''We got to block better than that. We got to play better than that. That certainly had an impact. No doubt."NOTES: RB Marshawn Lynch has a groin strain. Gruden said he would have an update on the severity next week. ... DL Frostee Rucker (neck) could be back next game. ... Cooper and WR Seth Roberts remain in concussion protocol. ... Joseph (hamstring) also could return against the Colts.
