There are 26 defensive backs in the Canton shrine
ATLANTA (AP) — In the past decade John Elway Jersey , four defensive backs from the modern era have made the Pro Football Hall of Fame.On Saturday, five of them are up for consideration.Cornerback Champ Bailey and safety Ed Reed are in their first year of eligibility. Cornerback Ty Law and safeties John Lynch and Steve Atwater each have been this route before and fallen short. not a particularly high number; 26 quarterbacks are in the hall, and only one of them is on the field at a time — OK, the Saints sometimes go with two. Most defenses have at least four DBs out there at a time, and more often these days there are five or six.So the relative shortage of coverage guys and bone-shattering tacklers from the secondary could get addressed this year.“Man, just a playmaker,” Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta says of Reed, who was a five-time All-Pro, won a Super Bowl for the 2012 season, made the All-Decade team of the 2000s, and was the 2004 Defensive Player of the Year.“Ed just always had a great knack for making a critical play in a critical situation. He was a finisher. He was a guy that when the lights were on, he was going to make the play.”DeCosta recalls a game against Washington:“I’ll never forget that night game when he blocked the punt, recovered the fumble and basically, singlehandedly, won that game for us. He just had a flare for making the best play of the game.”Reed’s fellow newcomer to the process, Bailey, starred for the Redskins for five seasons, then for another 10 with Denver. A three-time All-Pro who also made the 2000s All-Decade squad, he had 52 interceptions and was a lockdown cornerback for most of his career. Bailey also played some offense and returned punts.“I just loved to play. That’s why I did so much,” he says. “I love to do it, it wasn’t because I was good at it. A lot of guys are good at it, but they hate putting in the work. That’s what I love to do.“When I went to college, it was the same thing. When I got to NFL Ronald Leary Jersey , I wanted to do everything. I did as much as I could, as long as I could, and as long as they allowed me. Then once I got a little older, I got a little smarter and realized that I shouldn’t be doing all of this stuff. But it’s football and I miss the game.”Lynch was the bulwark of the Tampa 2 defense for the Buccaneers and then the Broncos, winning a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay. Law also won rings, getting three with New England, and had 53 interceptions. Atwater, as fierce a hitter as the safety position has seen, won two Super Bowls with the Broncos.There is a definite Denver flavor to this year’s class, with team owner Pat Bowlen on the ballot as a contributor. The other contributors’ category nominee is long-time Cowboys and league executive Gil Brandt, and the senior candidate is former Chiefs safety Johnny Robinson. They are considered separately from the modern-era guys.Along with DB, the offensive line is loaded with contenders, featuring center Kevin Mawae, tackles Steve Hutchinson and Tony Boselli, and guard Alan Faneca. All have been finalists before. Mawae, Faneca and Hutchinson also made the All-Decade team of the 2000s, Boselli was voted to the 1990s squad.The other first-year eligible player in the mix is Tony Gonzalez, who holds most of the NFL’s career records for tight ends.Wide receiver Issac Bruce, running back Edgerrin James, defensive lineman Richard Seymour and coaches Don Coryell and Tom Flores are the other finalists.A maximum of five modern-era candidates can make it, and a maximum of eight overall.Inductions will be on Aug. 3.FOX Fantasy AutoForm a Racing Team, Compete for PrizesPlay Now!

It ain’t spring Domata Peko Jersey , it’s hope! Hope returns to Broncos CountryKirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsWhen the season ended, I like many of you, was relieved the shambling mess that was the 2018 Denver Broncos collapsed in a smoldering heap. Coach Vance Joseph was clearly out of his element, Case Keenum left his baller cleats in Minnesota, and dark clouds hung over a franchise that, for the first time in decades, notched back-to-back losing seasons.Broncos Country now finds itself in the later half of March and things are vastly different. Gone is the frustrated and ineffective coach. Gone is Case Keenum, taking his unique brand of check-down terribleness to the Washington Redskins (consider it Elway’s payback for the Super Bowl XXII beatdown). The 2019 schedule isn’t even out, but something feels different already... and no it has nothing to do with Pat Bowlen and Champ Bailey going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this August. Putting the emotional baggage Broncos Country has against Joe Flacco aside for a moment, it’s hard to deny that Keenum’s dismissal and Joe’s arrival is a net positive for the offense. I’m not going to swing wide and say how big an improvement, but it would be shocking for Denver’s offense to be even worse than it was in 2018.Kareem Jackson?! Bryce Callahan?! I’ll be honest, before free agency started, I wouldn’t have been able to point either one of those guys out of a lineup. You could say I was too concerned with raging dumpster fire in Denver to look up and see what was going on with other teams around the league. However, since they signed, I have taken time to see with my own eyes, and, these guys are incredible additions to an already solid defense. Ja’Waun James you say? I like what I’ve heard and am hopeful for the Broncos perennially awful offensive line. It’s tough with linemen since nobody really notices them until get penalized or completely screw-up... Or open massive holes for running backs. Outside of Phillip Lindsay’s terrific year last year, it’s been too damn long for Broncos Country to go without noticing stellar line play in the running game. However, with the addition of Mike Munchak, offensive line woes are reported to be a thing of the past. Phillip Lindsay has to be thrilled. Things just feel different under Vic Fangio. I’m terrified of letting him down and I’m a lowly blogger who has zero interaction with the team, staff, janitorial, or pretty much anyone else outside of twitter. I can’t imagine what the players must feel when he coaches them. Discipline and respect were lacking in recent seasons and it’s great to see those tenets of Broncos football have returned in Vic Fangio’s form. Lastly, I absolutely love how he says Broncos... “Brancos”...Vowel confusion is totally acceptable when it sounds tough coming through a thick Chicago accent. Buckle up Broncos fans! The draft is right around the corner and things are just getting going.
