A little more than two weeks ago Sutton Smith Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey , the Ravens invaded the 27,000-seat temporary home of the Chargers and won handily, deploying an offensive game-plan that was at the same time old-school and antiquated and visually unappealing yet somehow innovative and intriguing and—most importantly—undeniably effective. which enabled them to control time of possession and keep the chains a-moving’. (If you’re reading this blog, chances are you cheer for the Steelers, which means that you probably watched this game; a loss by Baltimore would’ve enabled the Steelers to clinch the AFC North by winning just one of their remaining two contests.) Last weekend, the Chargers headed eastward and returned the favor; instead of adjusting their offensive game-plan, though, the Chargers made changes on the other side of the ball. You see, NFL coaches are oftentimes very stupid—for instance, some coaches thought that Lamar Jackson, who played no small role in guiding the Ravens to a 6-1 finish and dragging them into the postseason, should play wide receiver in the NFL Sutton Smith Jersey 2019 , this despite Jackson winning the Heisman as a quarterback and, duh, literally never catching a single pass in college; other coaches, meanwhile, use depth linebackers to cover elite NFL receivers—but they aren’t dummies, which is to say that the defensive coaches of a team who lost to an offense that’s unconventional by modern NFL standards but largely analogous to many college systems are gonna do their homework and develop a counter strategy. Gus Bradley and his staff presumably watched film of the Ravens, which led them to the very obvious diagnosis that, by employing a dizzying bevy of play-fakes and read-options, the Ravens could sneak Jackson—a veritable read-option virtuoso with 4.3 speed—or his meaty backfield counterpart Gus Edwards six or seven yards upfield past the linebackers before the defense could react. The antidote for this? Jam a whole daggum bunch of defensive backs right on in there, that’s what. This incredible statistic, per Adam Schefter: And it worked! By stacking the tackle box with speedy and positionless defense backs, the Chargers managed to prevent Jackson and Edwards from wiggling their way through traffic for significant gains and seal off outside running lanes. All told, they held the Ravens to 90 yards on 23 carries and, for most of the game Cheap Sutton Smith Jersey , completely abated Jackson (Jackson finished the game with a hair under 200 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns, which was the result of a monstrous comeback bid in the fourth quarter—not bad for a guy who should be playing receiver, apparently). That’s no small feat given that, in the seven weeks preceding this contest, the Ravens averaged 230 rushing yards per game. I wish the Steelers could do this! They can’t, of course, because they, unlike the Chargers, are not replete with amorphous defensive backs like Derwin James, Adrian Phillips, and Jahleel Addae, but instead employ the likes of Coty Sensabaugh and the cursed Artie Burns, who in an alternate universe populated by blanket people would be cheesecloth. Even if the Steelers did have, say Jon Bostic Jersey , Derwin James, a player for whom I’d trade my kidney, I have absolutely no faith in the collective ability of Pittsburgh’s defensive coaching staff to do anything of tangible value with him. Like, giving Keith Butler free rein to coach Derwin James would be the spiritual equivalent to giving a dog a Rubix Cube: the commodity in question will almost certainly be used, but there’s little chance it’ll be used correctly. And that’s the end of the article. I have no concluding remarks other than that I really wish not only that the Steelers secondary was more versatile, but that it could go seven-deep with real, legitimate NFL talent. Alas, it is not and it cannot. I’m sorry that this article was so dumb. Maybe we’ll add some multidimensional defensive backs with broad, malleable skill sets in free agency and the draft. Rams running back Todd Gurley got his big-money deal after only three seasons, two years before the franchise tag would have been applied to him for the first time. Jets running back Le'Veon Bell got his big-money deal after six years in the league, two after getting tagged and one after sitting out a full season to force his way to the open market.When great players get to the open market, which rarely happens, they should re-set the market at their position. Bell didn’t, even if in one respect he sort of did. Much of it depends on how the two deals are compared.So let’s compare the two deals.Gurley received a much larger signing bonus ($21 million vs. $8 million) Cameron Sutton Jersey , but Bell had more money fully guaranteed at signing ($27 million vs. $21.95 million). That said, Gurley’s contract ensured that he’d have $34.5 million fully guaranteed by the third day of the 2019 league year (that has happened), and that he’ll either have $45 million fully guaranteed over the first three years or $34.5 million fully guaranteed over the first two years. Also, the guaranteed money in Gurley’s deal has no offset language.In contrast, Bell’s deal pays $27 million guaranteed through two years (including offset language) and $38 million through three years, with a rolling guarantee that triggers in 2021. Much of Gurley’s guarantees beyond the first year convert to full guarantees early, with a $7.55 million roster bonus due in 2020 becoming fully guaranteed in March 2019 and a $5 million roster bonus due in 2021 becoming fully guaranteed in March 2020. Gurley’s structure is clearly superior.In short, Bell’s deal could end up being two years for $27 million. Gurley’s will be at worst two years for $34.5 million or three years for $45 million.Gurley also has an injury guarantee at signing of $45 million, which could come in handy if his reportedly arthritic knee tempts the Rams to end the contract after only two seasons. If he has an injury that keeps him from playing in 2020, he can still try to collect the extra $10.5 million, pushing his haul to $45 million over three years.Also, Bell’s deal hinges $2 million on per-game roster bonuses; Gurley’s deal has no per-game roster bonuses.Gurley’s extension of four years, $57.5 million has an annual new-money average of $14.375. Bell’s four-year contract has a base value of $12.625 million per year without roster bonuses, $13.125 million with roster bonuses.But here’s where the new money/value at signing distinction becomes important. From signing Carnell Lake Jersey , Gurley’s deal has a base value of $11.574 million, more than $1 million per year less than Bell’s base value from signing, without per-game roster bonuses.If Bell hits all of his performance triggers (which won’t be easy), the max value of the four-year contract will be $60.15 million. For Gurley, the max value (again, not easy — especially with an arthritic knee) of the extension is $60 million.Although Bell’s contract looks worse than it could have been because he refused a long-term offer from the Steelers that some have characterized as better than the Jets’ contract (that’s definitely debatable), the per-year average over the four years of his contract definitely exceeds Gurley’s per-year average over six. However, Gurley’s guaranteed money and the structure of the vesting of the full guarantees gets him to either to $17.25 million per year over two or $15 million per year over three. That should have been the floor for Bell, especially since he made it to the open market with no restriction.Unfortunately, Bell found himself as the rabbit in a one-dog race, and the Jets were able to take advantage of it. Which explains why Bell’s camp tried so hard last week to make it look like he had many suitors.
