The Breakdown:Custom Dolphins Jersey Mink’s Five Thoughts vs. Buffalo Bills

The Ravens defense is no mirage. Justin Tucker is tough, but doesn’t need to be that tough in a Custom Dolphins Jersey preseason game. Time to show more appreciation for Ryan Mallett. Two starters stilPersonalized Dolphins Jersey unknown.

Sorry, Ravens fans. I’m stepping in for John Eisenberg tonight. Here are five thoughts on the Ravens’ 13-9 win over the Buffalo Bills at M&T Bank Stadium:Men’s Nike Custom Made Miami Dolphins Elite Aqua Green Team Color NFL Jersey.

It’s Not a Mirage. This Defense Is Really, Really Good
After two preseason games, the Ravens defense sat atop the league in all the major categories. It led in total yardage allowed and the starters hadn’t surrendered a point. Saturday’s third preseason game was more of the same. The Bills got just 1 yard on their first drive. A Matthew Judon sack knocked former Ravens backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor (concussion) out of the game on the second drive. Buffalo got a little more traction on its third drive, but even that one should have ended with a C.J. Mosley interception. The first-team defense gave up 36 total yards on four drives. We can all sit back and continue to say preseason action means nothing, and the Bills offensive weapons don’t measure up to the ones Baltimore will see in Cincinnati in Week 1, but dominant performance after dominant performance screams of a trend. This is no mirage, folks. The Ravens defense is really, really good.Youth Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey Sale.

We Get It Tucker, You’re Tough. Now Stop It
After Justin Tucker recovered a fumble on his own kickoff last week, he was asked whether it would give him a stronger argument when people say kickers aren’t football players. “I don’t ever let anybody put that evil on me,” he replied, quoting the comedy film, “Talladega Nights.” Tucker has never been afraid to stick his nose in the action. Nothing written here is going to convince him otherwise, but could his coaches? We all know how valuable the two-time Pro Bowler has been to this team. But with uncertainty swirling around the Ravens offense, Tucker may be more valuable than ever right now. He’s perhaps the best chance at reliable points this season. Making a tackle to prevent a kickoff return for a touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers is cool. Hitting a returner in the preseason … not so much.

Time to Appreciate Mallett More
Ravens fans yearned to see what Josh Woodrum would do with the starters. He got his chance and the magic everyone was hoping for didn’t materialize. Had a deep pass to Mike Wallace been a foot shorter, Woodrum would have had a memorable touchdown, but it fell incomplete. A fourth-and-5 play went haywire due to an unexpected snap. It was a tough assignment against the Bills’ starting defense, but the idea was to see how he would handle such a situation. He threw a touchdown late in the third quarter, but it came with most of the Custom Patriots Jersey Bills’ defensive starters on the sideline. On the other end, Ryan Personalized Packers Jersey Mallett had his best preseason game yet. He looked in control, sharper, made quicker decisions and, most important of all, did not turn the ball over. They only netted three points, but Mallett engineered two solid drives in three opportunities. Mallett has taken a lot of heat this summer, but he’s improved. The Ravens still need Joe Flacco under center. Mallett’s rebound shouldn’t be sneered at, however.Women’s Nike Custom Made Green Bay Packers Elite Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale.

Two Starters are Still Unknown
It looks like the identity of the Ravens’ starting left guard will be a mystery going into the regular season. Matt Skura started there Saturday night, but it’s doubtful that he’ll be the guy in Cincinnati. Ryan Jensen remained the starting center, backed up by re-signed Jeremy Zuttah. James Hurst stayed at left tackle with Ronnie Stanley still out with an undisclosed injury. The Ravens’ starting inside linebacker next to C.J. Mosley doesn’t appear to be set in stone either Personalized Patriots Jersey. Kamalei Correa and Patrick Onwuasor traded drives early on, then both played when Mosley exited. Correa has been the leader throughout the summer, but it could end up being a shared role. Onwuasor made his case, forcing and recovering a fumble on the Bills’ final drive, with about a minute remaining, to preserve the Ravens win. He looked fast all night and had some good quarterback pressure.

Quick Hits
Go ahead and chalk up undrafted rookie cornerback Jaylen Hill for a 53-man roster spot. He simply continues to make plays, and got his second interception of the preseason, leading to Baltimore’s first touchdown of the game. This kid was a tryout (not part of the Ravens’ first undrafted rookie class). Incredible story. … Undrafted running back Taquan “Smoke” Mizzell is also building a solid case to be on the team. Filling in for injured Danny Woodhead, Mizzell led the Ravens in receiving with six grabs for 54 yards, including a nifty 15-yard touchdown. … Undrafted rookie wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo was the talk of the town in training camp practices, but hasn’t made the same impact in any of the three preseason games. … Call it a block party or whatever you want, but the Ravens’ defenders are well-coached in knowing when to get their hands in passing lanes when they aren’t going to get to the quarterback. … The Ravens’ trademark intentional safety is a lot less fun now that the blatant WWE-style holding to kill more clock loophole has been closed. Good to see the move is still in their back pocket, however, if the circumstances are right.

Who’s Playing, Who’s Not vs. New Orleans Saints Men’s Nike Custom Made Miami Dolphins Elite Aqua Green Team Color NFL Jersey

The Ravens will stick with their standard plan of not playing most starters in the preseason finale. Will first-round pick Marlon Humphrey get back in the lineup?

The Ravens will wrap up the preseason Thursday night in New Orleans.Men’s Nike Custom Made Miami Dolphins Elite Aqua Green Team Color NFL Jersey.

But don’t expect to see Terrell Suggs, Eric Custom Packers Jersey Weddle and other veteran players in uniform. As they’ve done throughout Head Coach John Harbaugh’s tenure in Baltimore, the Ravens won’t play most of the starters as they shift their focus to the regular-season opener in Cincinnati.

“We’ll go with the traditional way of handling it,” Harbaugh said. “We haven’t played our front-line guys in maybe nine years, so we’re not going to do it now. Our guys need to get ready for Cincinnati. Our guys need to get ready to play the Bengals.”

While the starters won’t play, the fourth preseason contest is still critical in deciding the final few roster spots. Young players typically get the entire game to show what they can do, and some end up playing their way onto the 53-man squad.

A big difference with this year’s finale is that teams have a much larger roster at their disposal. The NFL eliminated the cutdown to 75 players, which typically happened right before the final preseason game.Youth Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey Sale.

Count Harbaugh among those in favor of the new roster rules.

“I am really happy with it because 75 is never 75,” Harbaugh said. “It is usually about 50 or 55, 60 when you take into account guys that are nicked and bumped and bruised and things like that. Then, you have certain guys that are not going to play in this game. That is just the reality of it. There is no way you are going to play certain guys in this game.

“Young guys who are fighting for a spot on this team still or on other teams, they get a chance to get out there and play more reps rather than be sitting home looking at the phone. To me, it makes all the sense in the world, and we are really happy about it.”

Will Humphrey Play?

First-round Custom Dolphins Jersey pick Marlon Humphrey Custom Patriots Jersey doesn’t have to worry about making the roster, but Personalized Packers Jersey he could still see action Thursday night. The Ravens typically play their rookies in that game, even if they are high draft picks expected to play key roles in the regular season.Women’s Nike Custom Made Green Bay Packers Elite Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale.

The uncertainty with Humphrey is that he missed last week’s game with a soft-tissue injury, which has hindered him this summer. He returned to practice this week, but the Ravens haven’t made any announcements about his status for the game.

If Humphrey is healthy enough to play, the Ravens would certainly like to see him get more game reps. But they are also counting on him to be an important piece of this year’s secondary, so they won’t risk further injury if he’s not ready to go.

Final Audition at Linebacker?

A spot on the defense that still looks like it’s up for grabs is the weak-side linebacker spot next to C.J. Mosley.

Kamalei Correa and Patrick Onwuasor split the first-team reps last week, and both played into the fourth quarter. While both will be important pieces of the defense this year, the Ravens will have to decide whether they want one more look at them in game action to make a decision on the starter before going into the regular season.

If Correa and Onwuasor both sit, then that could open an opportunity for Bam Bradley and Donald Payne, who are competing for a roster spot after the Personalized Packers Jersey season-ending injury to Albert McClellan.

 

Harbaugh: Joe Flacco Will Be Custom Dolphins Jersey Ready for Bengals, ‘I Promise You That’

Quarterback Joe Flacco won’t return to practice on Monday, but he will be ready for the start of the regular season.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (back) won’t practice Monday, but the plan for Custom Dolphins Jersey his return is still in place, and his status for Week 1 is not in danger.Men’s Nike Custom Made Miami Dolphins Elite Aqua Green Team Color NFL Jersey.

Head Coach John Harbaugh was asked about Flacco’s timetable after the Ravens’ 13-9 win over the Buffalo Bills in the third preseason game.

“No, he’s not going to practice [Monday],” Harbaugh said. “He’s on schedule, though, I’ll say that. He’s still on schedule.”Youth Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey Sale.

Harbaugh didn’t say whether Flacco will be back on Personalized Packers Jersey the practice field at any time this week Custom Packers Jersey.

“He’ll be back for the Bengals game and he’ll be ready to play,” Harbaugh said. “I promise you that.”

Fans have been wondering when the Ravens’ franchise quarterback will be able to practice in order to Custom Patriots Jersey start gaining chemistry with the rest of the first-team offense. He’s only had a couple Personalized Patriots Jersey practices with new wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, for example.Women’s Nike Custom Made Green Bay Packers Elite Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale.

2017 Preseason Stock Watch vs. Personalized Packers Jersey Buffalo Bills

Quarterback Ryan Mallett looks sharp in limited work and Josh Woodrum gets his shot with the first team. Jaylen Hill’s spot on the roster looks like a certainty. Patrick Onwuasor gets first-team reps.

The Ravens moved to 3-0 this preseason with a 13-9 victory over the Buffalo Bills Saturday night.Men’s Nike Custom Made Miami Dolphins Elite Aqua Green Team Color NFL Jersey.

This year’s third preseason game didn’t resemble the “dress rehearsal” format of most seasons, but it was an important chance to get a look at young players competing for starting jobs and roster spots.

Here’s how the game affected the stock of several players:

QB Ryan Mallett

Baltimore’s backup quarterback had his best outing of the preseason. He only played three series, and the offense had success moving the football while he was in the game. Mallett’s stats weren’t all that impressive – he completed 6 of 10 passes for 58 yards – but he made good throws and was quick in his decision making. He protected the football, showed good awareness in the pocket and did nothing to lose his spot as the No. 2 quarterback going into the season.

QB Josh Woodrum

After a pair of stellar outings to open the preseason, the Ravens got an extended look at Woodrum. He Custom Dolphins Jersey took snaps with the first-team offense after Mallett’s three series, and it was the first time he had worked with the starters in a game. Woodrum didn’t turn the ball over, but the offense also didn’t have much success moving the ball when he was in the game. He just missed a potential touchdown pass to wide receiver Mike Wallace on his opening series by throwing it a step beyond the reach of the speedy receiver. Woodrum had the tough task of going up against many of Buffalo’s starters into the third quarter, but it was a good opportunity for the young quarterback. He finished the game completing 8-of-13 passes for 55 yards and a touchdown. Woodrum will get another chance to show what he can do in the preseason finale Thursday night, and the Ravens will also have to decide whether to keep three quarterbacks on this year’s 53-man roster.Youth Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey Sale.

LBs Patrick Onwuasor/ Kamalei Correa

Onwuasor appears to have closed the gap in the competition for the inside linebacker spot next to C.J. Mosley. Correa has taken virtually all of the starting reps throughout training camp, but the Ravens gave Onwuasor first-team reps Personalized Dolphins Jersey against Buffalo. Correa still got the start, but Onwuasor entered the game on the second series. They Custom Patriots Jersey then alternated series throughout the first half while the starters were in the game. Both players stayed in the game deep into the second half, indicating that the spot is still there for the taking. After a dropped interception, Onwuasor made the biggest play of the game with a strip and fumble recovery to preserve the Ravens’ win with about a minute left.Women’s Nike Custom Made Green Bay Packers Elite Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale.

CB Jaylen Hill

The undrafted rookie cornerback continues to make his case for a roster spot. Custom Packers Jersey He played tight coverage throughout the night and came up with his second interception of the preseason. Hill dropped into coverage and read the play perfectly to come up with the pick, and then showed off nice return skills once he got the ball Personalized Packers Jersey in his hands. In addition to the interception, he broke up a pair of passes with perfectly timed hits on the receiver. He also displayed nice blitzing ability by getting into the backfield to force a rushed throw. Hill has been one of the most pleasant surprises of training camp, and his spot on the 53-man roster looks almost like a certainty.

RB Taquan Mizzell

Mizzell is another undrafted rookie who had a strong night. He carried the ball six times for 14 yards, and added a game-high six receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown. Mizzell looks like a natural catching passes out of the backfield, and he demonstrated that on the 15-yard touchdown from Woodrum. Mizzell caught the pass over the middle and then pushed his way through a tackler to plunge into the end zone. The Virginia product has flashed throughout the summer, and he’s given the Ravens a lot to think about at running back. The Ravens may consider keeping an extra running back on the roster, particularly if veteran Danny Woodhead’s reported hamstring injury lingers.

From Rookie Tryout to Playmaker,Personalized Patriots Jersey Jaylen Hill Is Earning His Spot

Rookie cornerback Jaylen Hill has two interceptions in three preseason games after getting zero interest from NFL teams before or immediately after the draft.

Not only did Jaylen Hill not get drafted. He didn’t even get any phone calls immediately after the draft.Men’s Nike Custom Made Miami Dolphins Elite Aqua Green Team Color NFL Jersey.

Eventually, the Ravens called to offer Hill a tryout at rookie minicamp, but he was a longshot among longshots.Youth Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey Sale.

Since then, Hill has done nothing but impress. And now he’s done so much that he has a strong case to make the Ravens’ 53-man roster.

Hill made his second interception in three preseason games in Saturday night’s 13-9 win over the Buffalo Bills at M&T Bank Stadium. His interception set up the Ravens’ only touchdown of the game.

“He’s a young guy, just like any other young player, but he has come up with a big play every game so far,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said.

Hill is accustomed to beating the odds. He was originally a walk-on at small-school Jacksonville State. The 6-foot-0, 175-pound cornerback eventually became a three-year starter and led his team with six interceptions last season.Women’s Nike Custom Made Green Bay Packers Elite Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale.

“Guys try to find a way to make plays. I remember watching him in college – his stats and his tape – and he did just that,” Harbaugh said. “To see it translate to this level in the preseason is a big plus Personalized Patriots Jersey. I’m happy with him.”

Hill started standing out Personalized Dolphins Jersey in practices when he was frequently getting his hands on passes. In the Ravens’ first preseason game against the Washington Redskins, he picked off backup quarterback Colt McCoy on a deep pass to the sideline that Hill had sized-up Custom Patriots Jersey  the whole way.

Hill’s interception against the Bills came in a different coverage. This time he was in a Cover-2 zone. As Bills quarterback T.J. Yates rolled to his right, Hill dropped deeper into coverage and cut in front of the intended target.

He returned the interception 12 yards, setting the offense up 15 yards away from the end zone. Three plays later, the Ravens took a 10-7 lead.

When the Ravens brought Hill in for his tryout, they told him they kept him because of the way he didn’t back down from anybody. Hill matched up against bigger-name undrafted rookie wide receivers Tim White and Quincy Adeboyejo and held his own.

Now on a much bigger stage, Hill continues to do the same.

“It just lets you know that everybody has to prove themselves every day,” Hill said. “You can’t go off the name of somebody or who they are and where they come from. Everybody comes from different situations, but you have to go out there every day, every down and every play.

“It never stops. Even after this, when we go to New Orleans, I have to prove myself again. It is good that I can make these plays for my team, but you have to prove yourself every down and every play.”

When it comes to making the 53-man Custom Packers Jersey roster, the cornerbacks with a guaranteed roster spot are Jimmy Smith, Brandon Carr, Marlon Humphrey and Maurice Canady (possible injured reserve to return) Custom Dolphins Jersey. Hill’s primary competition is likely Sheldon Price, but the numbers look to be in Hill’s favor.

Hill was asked if he’s done enough to make the team.

“I don’t know. I don’t just that,” he said. “I want to really bad.”

Quarterback Josh Woodrum Gets His Personalized Patriots Jersey Chance With Starters

The quarterback out of Liberty saw more action this week against Buffalo, as the Ravens wanted to see what he could do with the first team.

Josh Woodrum caught just about everyone by surprise with his performances in Baltimore’s first two preseason games.

He had a perfect passer rating in the preseason opener and followed that up by rushing for two touchdowns last week. Woodrum had Baltimore buzzing, and Custom Patriots Jersey he did enough that the coaching staff wanted to see what he could do with the starters.

The Ravens decided early this week that they would give Woodrum some time with the first-team offense, and he entered Saturday’s game against the Buffalo Bills after three series for Ryan Mallett.

“It was nice Personalized Patriots Jersey to get in there with the ones a little bit, and kind of get in [a] groove with them,” Woodrum said.

Woodrum didn’t move the offense as well as he had in his first two outings, but he was also up against stiffer competition. He led the second-string offense against Buffalo’s starting defense for much of the night, so it was a tough assignment.

Woodrum completed 8-of-13 passes for 55 yards and a touchdown. The score was a 16-yard pass to running back Taquan Mizzell, which came after an interception by cornerback Jaylen Hill gave Baltimore the football at the Buffalo 15-yard line in the third quarter.Men’s Nike Custom Made Miami Dolphins Elite Aqua Green Team Color NFL Jersey.

“Today he did OK,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said about Woodrum. “He made a few plays, scrambled and made a few throws. He had a ball or two dropped, so he’s progressing well.”

In addition to facing a starting defense for the first time, Woodrum also adjusted to working with the first-team offense. The group wasn’t totally in sync, which was evident when center Ryan Jensen snapped a ball past Woodrum’s shoulder before he was ready and led to a turnover on downs.Youth Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey Sale.

“Being a different person, a different voice, a different Personalized Packers Jersey cadence, whatever it Custom Packers Jersey is, there’s always going to be some kind of barrier you’re going to have to break through,” Woodrum said. “I thought once we were able to get through that, we were able to put together a couple of little drives.”

Woodrum was in the game for seven series, and the Ravens came up with 10 points with him at the helm. He just missed a touchdown on his opening drive by throwing a pass a step beyond the reach of wide-open speedster Mike Wallace.

The Ravens also dealt with a heavy dose of penalties, which forced drives to stall out or took away some positive plays.

“Our offense played well, except for the penalties in the first half – especially at the end of the first half when Woodrum went in there,” Women’s Nike Custom Made Green Bay Packers Elite Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale Harbaugh said.

Woodrum will get one more Personalized Dolphins Jersey chance to show the Ravens coaches, and the rest of the NFL, what he can do. The starters won’t play in Thursday’s preseason finale against the New Orleans Saints, but Woodrum will be out to show he’s deserving of a roster spot.

He likely hasn’t done enough to pass Mallett on the depth chart, but the Ravens may consider keeping three quarterbacks on the 53-man squad considering Joe Flacco’s back injury. If Woodrum continues to make plays and show sound decision-making like he has this preseason, he could find himself on the roster for the regular season.

“You always want to grow as you go on, whether it’s with a practice or with a game or whatever it is – you want to build on it,” Woodrum said. “It’s kind of what I’m about and always will be. It’s putting together good days, whether it’s consecutive good games, or consecutive good practices, just stacking good days on to each other.”

Customized New England Patriots Jersey Why Paul Ryan Is So Desperate To Vote On Obamacare Repeal Quickly

House Speaker Paul Ryan has vowed a quick repeal of Obamacare in order to
Customized New England Patriots Jersey “stop the damage” and because “things are only getting worse.”

Meanwhile, here is a selection of news reports from the past two weeks:

The Obama administration announced that the number of people signing up for insurance through HealthCare.gov, the federal website that 39 states use to
Customized Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey administer Obamacare plans, is even higher than last year. State-run sites such as Covered California are reporting similar surges.Men’s Nike Personalized Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Away White NFL Jersey for Sale.

An independent think tank, The Commonwealth Fund, published a study showing that fewer people are skipping medical care because of cost ― most
Custom Steelers Jersey likely because, thanks to the health care law, so many more people have health insurance.

Standard and Poor’s Global Ratings reported that insurers selling Obamacare plans are seeing better financial results this year, suggesting that premiums are finally coming into line with the actual medical expenses of their customers ― and that this year’s big rate hikes may be a “one-time pricing correction.”

It’s possible that Ryan thinks these and similarly positive news items are irrelevant ― that the Wisconsin Republican has deluded himself into thinking Obamacare really is an unmitigated policy disaster, rather than a fairly typical government program full of pluses and minuses and the inevitable implementation complications that large reform efforts usually overcome.

It’s also possible that Ryan’s crusade to pass repeal in January has nothing to do with policy and everything to do with politics ― that he wants Congress to vote before the rest of the country, and maybe even the president-elect, wakes up to
Youth Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Away White NFL Jersey Cheap the real-life changes such a vote would unleash.

What “repeal and delay” would mean in real life

Ryan and his allies envision a quick, surgical strike on Obamacare soon after Donald Trump takes office, via what’s come to be known as a “repeal and delay” strategy. The idea is to eliminate Obamacare’s funding, using a special legislative procedure reserved for bills related to the budget, while leaving most of Obamacare’s coverage provisions in place for a year or two or maybe three. In theory, the more than 20 million people now relying on the program would hold onto insurance while Republicans craft their replacement scheme.

Even conservative experts doubt this gambit would work out so neatly. Insurers that tolerated early losses in Obamacare marketplaces in the hopes of realizing future profits aren’t going to stick around for a market that’s about to disappear ― particularly if the repeal bill also takes actions, such as eliminating the individual mandate, that would tilt the insurance customer base even more toward unhealthy people with high medical expenses. If enough carriers flee, a recent analysis from the Urban Institute predicted, millions of people would lose their health insurance in just the first year.

And it’s not like Republicans can guarantee that, after a transition period, they would have a new health care scheme in place and ready to go. It’s been more than six years since Republicans first promised to craft an Obamacare replacement, yet they are nowhere near a consensus on what such a replacement should look like.

The House has a set of reform principles with no dollar figures, the Senate doesn’t even have a set of principles, and President-elect Trump has a set of vague talking points that could mean he endorses some traditional conservative ideas, like allowing insurers more freedom to sell coverage across state lines, or that he’s never given these specific proposals more than 10 minutes of thought.

This intellectual disarray should not be surprising. Finding consensus on health care policy is hard once the trade-offs become apparent ― when lawmakers discover, for example, that it’s difficult to require insurance coverage for people with pre-existing conditions without making sure that healthy people are also paying into the system.

Obamacare’s approach, a combination of subsidies for individuals who buy insurance and penalties for those who do not, isn’t the only one. But the
Men’s Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey Sale alternatives, which range from single-payer on the political left to high-risk pools on the political right, don’t make those policy trade-offs disappear. They simply move the trade-offs around. Lower premiums for the young tend to mean higher premiums for the old, less regulation on insurers usually means less protection for consumers, and so on.

The prospect of repeal with so much uncertainty about a replacement has already drawn carefully worded criticism from a handful of Republicans,
Custom Patriots Jersey including Sens. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.) and Susan Collins (Maine). Alexander’s warnings about the perils of haste are particularly important because he’s a senior, widely respected member of the Senate ― and because he is chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, which has direct jurisdiction over health legislation.

Why Ryan and his allies want that repeal vote now

But Ryan and his allies aren’t slowing down, at least not so far, and there are likely two main reasons.

One is that the repeal bill is likely to dictate the size and shape of an eventual replacement, by stripping out Obamacare’s revenue ― including some $350 billion in taxes that fall exclusively on the wealthiest Americans. Cutting upper-income taxes is a perennial priority for Republicans. But without that money at the disposal of lawmakers, it’s pretty much impossible to craft a conservative scheme that would come anywhere close to the scale of insurance coverage that Obamacare does.

Sure enough, the schemes conservatives envision would all result in far fewer people covered, greater exposure to medical bills even among those with insurance or a combination of those two. The ones hit hardest would be the people without a lot of disposable income, the ones with serious medical problems and (worst of all) the people who fall into both categories.
Women’s Nike Custom Made Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap.

The other likely reason to rush a repeal vote would be to avoid public scrutiny of both its short- and long-term effects.

For all of the controversy swirling around President Barack Obama’s signature health care law, and for all of the genuinely negative feelings the public has about it, its core elements remain highly popular. Those elements include not just protection for people with pre-existing conditions but also the availability of financial assistance for people who can’t afford coverage on their own ― which, in a recent Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation poll, a whopping 80 percent of Americans said they support.

The same Kaiser Foundation poll found that roughly half of Americans want to keep Obamacare in place or expand what it does. Another 17 percent merely wants Congress to scale it back, while just over a quarter want full repeal ― and even that enthusiasm wanes when respondents learn that repeal might mean eroding the law’s consumer protections.

An extended debate over repeal, the kind that Democrats endured in the 14 months they spent crafting health care reform, might focus public attention on the disconnect between what it wants and what Republicans are proposing ― and suddenly repeal might not seem very attractive politically.

Republicans, particularly those from safely conservative House districts, might be telling themselves that their voters want full Obamacare repeal, regardless of what the public as a whole desires. If so, they should look more closely at that Kaiser poll, which showed even Republican voters divided over whether to support full repeal. Or maybe Republican lawmakers should listen to the Trump voters that Vox’s Sarah Kliff interviewed in Kentucky and that the Atlantic’s Olga Khazan interviewed in Pennsylvania.

These voters weren’t Obamacare fans, for sure, and many said they were angry other people seemed to be getting more financial help paying for insurance. But these voters were in no mood to restore the pre-Obamacare status quo.

Many said they hoped for a new system that provided more coverage rather than less, and quite a few were actually grateful for their Obamacare insurance ― even if they didn’t always know it came from Obamacare. “I’m afraid now that the insurance is going to go away and we’re going to be up a creek,” one Kentuckian told Kliff.

What Trump really thinks and wants

It’s not clear how many other Republican voters are feeling the same fear ― or whether Trump himself has come to grips with what a quick repeal vote, without a replacement in place, would entail.

As The New York Times’ David Leonhardt noted on Tuesday, Trump’s blustering about Obamacare frequently included promises to replace it with something better. “We have to take care of the people that can’t take care of themselves,” Trump said during a Fox News debate. “Everybody’s got to be covered,” he told CBS’s “60 Minutes.”

Those statements could have the same meaning as anything else Trump has said ― which is to say, they could have no meaning at all. Come January, Trump might simply outsource health care policy to members of his administration, starting with Vice President-elect Mike Pence ― who, from the looks of things, is in lockstep with Ryan.

But Trump has a history of endorsing the principle of universal coverage and it’s possible that he really thought repealing Obamacare would be a prelude to something even more far-reaching and comprehensive. If so, that would put Trump very much at odds with what Ryan and his allies are proposing to do.Men’s Nike Custom Made Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap.

The only question would be whether Trump, and the public at large, realize in time to act.

Custom Patriots Jersey Dak Prescott continues to develop into an NFL star

A storied Dallas Cowboys season is all set to conclude with the NFC East champions as the No. 1 seed in their conference and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. They’re riding a 13-2 record into Week 17 on the back of
Custom Patriots Jersey a number of new 2016 faces.Men’s Nike Custom Made Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap.

We knew the most popular newcomer is the jovial face of rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott. It’s clear his selection in the NFL draft has been the finishing touch on a team that was brewing a beast of a rushing attack for years now with multiple first-round selections spent on the offensive line. Elliott added another 80 rushing yards, a pair of touchdowns and several more breath-taking plays to
Customized New England Patriots Jersey his illustrious resume Monday night.
Women’s Nike Custom Made Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap.

Everything the Cowboys do begins and ends with Elliott. However, his rookie backfield mate has been just as a big of a reason for Dallas’ return to the ranks of the NFL’s elite.

Dak Prescott seems to just get better every single week. We saw the rookie show well as the team’s caretaker and occasional playmaker at the start of the season. He’s been great all year, but he was a complementary asset to a team that had more pivotal building blocks. Yet, Prescott hit a small bump in the road in Weeks 13 and 14. His performance in the team’s loss to the New York Giants in Week 14, when he completed 46 percent of his passes and threw two interceptions, even drew the long dormant “Tony Romo should be the starter” preachers out of the woodwork. It was worth asking whether this Cinderella story quarterback was
Customized Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey  finally turning back into a pumpkin. Now we know that nothing could have been further from the truth.

With the national spotlight on him in both games, Prescott strung together the two finest outings of his stellar year. After a strong showing against Tampa Bay in Week 15, he dismantled the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football to put an exclamation point on a season where the fourth-round pick will certainly garner some MVP whispers.Early in the season some pundits stuck a pejorative dink-and-dunk label on the rookie passer. He’s developed so much since those narratives were constructed. All three of Prescott’s touchdowns came on passes that traveled 10 or more yards in the air tonight. In total he threw eight such passes against the Lions, completing six of them for 127 yards and the three scores with a 156.3 passer rating. That was the best passer rating on throws of 10-plus air yards of any Week
Men’s Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey Sale 16 quarterback.

Dak’s development as a downfield passer shows what kind of bright future he has as an NFL starter that not only helps his team, but is the catalyst that wins them games. Prescott averaged 9.6 air yards per attempt Monday, which was his second-highest mark for the season. He averaged 10.3 against the Eagles in Week 8. To underscore his level of progression, Prescott completed 48.7 percent of his passes in that contest against Philadelphia, and 75 percent versus the Lions.

Another area where Prescott has shown noted development is in his rapport with No. 1 receiver Dez Bryant. At times this season Prescott has just defaulted to taking the open read and focused on what the defense gave him, leading to big games for the likes of Cole Beasley and other ancillary players. That’s certainly fine, and it helped the team get to the record they have today. Yet, it’s clear what having an X-factor like Bryant does for a team. When he’s playing at an elite level, he provides the counterpunch that makes Dallas’ offense a near unstoppable force.Prescott showed a willingness to fit the ball to Bryant in difficult situations that we haven’t always seen from him this season. Bryant averaged a measly 1.5 yards of separation from the nearest defender on his five targets. Bryant had less than a yard of separation (0.8) on both of his touchdown receptions, including his
Youth Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Away White NFL Jersey Cheap dynamic one-handed score.

Not only does this show what a rare talent Bryant is at winning contested catches and that Prescott is willing to make use of him in those situations, it also brings to light the rookie’s pinpoint accuracy to drop a pass in the perfect position. If Prescott and Bryant are hitting their stride and building a chemistry anywhere close to what the receiver had with Tony Romo, this team will be a chore to
Custom Steelers Jersey knock out of the postseason dance.As an added bonus, Dez himself found another way to contribute in the offensive attack by throwing a touchdown pass of his own. Bryant’s third-quarter touchdown pass traveled 23.4 yards of raw distance across the field and went over 10-plus yards in the air into the end zone. It caught the Lions’ defense so off-guard that Jason Witten had a whopping 5.6 yards of separation from the nearest defender at the time he caught the pass.

With a running game roaring at the height of its powers behind a rookie in the midst of an all-time great season with an offensive line of epic quality, the rest of the NFC can’t afford to deal with a Cowboys team that has even more up their sleeve. Bryant’s output as a wildly efficient No. 1 receiver simply isn’t fair to pile on.

Yet, the remainder of the NFC field could meet in battle with this team. Even worse, they’ll face a quarterback who looks nothing like a first-year signal-caller should. In bouncing back from his lowest moment two weeks ago, Dak showed the world he is special. It’s plain to see. Be prepared to witness it in January.Men’s Nike Personalized Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Away White NFL Jersey for Sale.

Customized Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey Packers’ supplemental run game explodes vs. Bears

Just weeks ago, we filled this space with a breakdown of why Green Bay’s defense
Customized Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey couldn’t stop a nosebleed in the passing game. My, how times have changed.

Since surrendering truckloads of points in a three-game stretch, the Packers are in the midst of indeed running the table. Green Bay got Damarious Randall back and remedied its issues on defense, and ditched the idea of the traditional
Custom Steelers Jersey running back after injuries decimated the position and
Men’s Nike Custom Made Pittsburgh Steelers Elite Black Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap forced the Packers to deal for Knile Davis in an ill-fated attempt to acquire a stopgap. Mike McCarthy’s offense has since resorted to turning wide receiver Ty Montgomery into a running back, and while yes, it’s odd to see a player wearing No. 88 lining up in the backfield, it’s working for the Packers.

The reason isn’t necessarily a fresh scheme, or a shift in attitude, but the physical tools of Montgomery, who has grown visibly comfortable with the new position as the season has progressed. At 6 feet and 216 pounds, Montgomery possesses both the size and speed to be effective as a runner. But the most devastating quality Montgomery has at his disposal is how he’s carrying the ball.

Gone are the days of big Eddie Lacy plodding through holes with a head of steam and a midsection that was quite large before Shaun T trimmed him for beach photoshoots. Instead, Montgomery’s vision has him envied by a good portion of
Custom Patriots Jersey the league, and considered for the namesake of Lil’ Wayne’s next child (best wishes to the future Ty Montgomery Carter).Men’s Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey Sale.

How much has Montgomery improved as a runner in the second half of the season? Take a look at this run Sunday against the Bears, which should have been stopped for a short gain at best, but thanks to Montgomery’s patience and continual search for an opening finished inside Chicago’s 5-yard line.

Montgomery didn’t hit a blinding top speed Sunday, but his initial burst through the hole resulted in more than one rush of 35-plus yards. He rarely wastes steps
Customized New England Patriots Jersey (he tied with the Giants’ Paul Perkins for most efficient back in Week 15 with 2.7 yards per rushing yard gained), running in a choppier fashion that allows him to make quick cuts to both find, enter and exit small running lanes and evade defenders in the process. His 61-yard run and
Youth Nike Custom Made New England Patriots Elite Away White NFL Jersey Cheap 36-yard gallop were great examples of how his style aided in big gains.
