Youth Tyreek Hill Jersey

The Re-Up: Tyreek Hill was excellent Sunday Youth Tyreek Hill Jersey , and we still don’t know his ceiling Welcome to our new Monday morning column, called The Re-Up. I’ll write about some deeper thought I had about the game and finish with some fun stuff to ponder at the article’s end.Jake Roth-USA TODAY SportsBack in late June, Josh Webb — one of our Arrowhead Pride readers — sent in a question that I thought was rather thought-provoking. “If the New York Giants called and offered Odell Beckham Jr. for Tyreek Hill, straight up, would you take it?”We talked about it on our Arrowhead Pride summer radio program, and we posted the poll on our site. With nearly 4,000 total votes, 90 percent of you said you would pass on the trade*. On Sunday after the Chiefs’ 38-28 Week 1 win over the Los Angeles Chargers, you looked awfully right. Hill had three total touchdowns to go along with 169 receiving yards on, all the while Beckham finished with 111 and none.Now let me be clear.I am not saying that after one regular-season game, the debate is final. But after what Hill showcased, I believe it is now safe to say with 100 percent certainty you just couldn’t take that chance.We all know what Beckham is: one of the best receivers in the National Football League. But Hill — who remains the best punt returner in the NFL, who is definitely faster than anyone else, who is paired with one of the greatest coaching minds in the history of the game — has a ceiling that is still unknown. “I mean that guy, Tyreek Hill, is unbelievable to watch,” Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said Sunday. “What a dynamic player. I don’t want to make any too crazy of statements, but he is one of the most dynamic guys. I don’t know if I’ve seen anybody better, the things he can do speed-wise, in all my time playing.”Over the years, it has become a coaching trend to remove players from special teams as they grow and develop, and become a more important part of the offense.But the Chiefs value Hill too much in special teams to make such a move. And it paid off on Sunday in the form of points.“I was getting ready to go out there, got my helmet,” Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt said. “Next thing I know, I see Tyreek catch it and do what he does. Once he hit the outside, I knew it was a touchdown. I was just like, ‘Let me sit back down. Good for him.’”Good for him — and really, good for the Chiefs. That punt return was worth six on Sunday, but in the grand scheme of things Youth Chris Conley Jersey , it could be worth field position for the rest of the year. What special teams coordinator in his right mind will punt directly to Hill after that?And that will translate to better field position for the offense and Patrick Mahomes, who will use Hill there, too.“I think everyone on our team is trying to advance their game and trying to get better,” Mahomes said after the game. “Tyreek’s really worked on his route running and everything in order to make himself the best wide receiver in the league. I think today has showed that he has improved in his part and has the speed to bring it any time.”In January, I posed this question: “Is Tyreek Hill one part of his game away from being the best WR in the NFL?”Hill had finished seventh in the league in receiving yards in 2017 with what he said was still a major part of his game missing: his route running. So he worked on it.He worked on it all offseason long. Hill understood that if he could improve his route running, it might give him an extra step or two on defensive players, and if he could get an extra step or two on defensive players, well then...Poof.That work showed in the form of a slant route Hill took 58 yards to the house Sunday.“It’s a [run-pass option] play and I had a slant so he [Mahomes] was reading the linebackers,” Hill explained. “I just have to run my route and be there. There’s a certain spot on the field that I have to be and he’s going to throw it there every time. Then after that, it’s history.” Maybe that touchdown doesn’t happen in 2017. And maybe that’s why — back then — a trade for OBJ might be a no-brainer.But it’s not that simple anymore, is it?—* (Big Blue View posted the same poll and 81 percent of Giants fans said they wouldn’t make the deal either, for what it’s worth)STAT OF THE GAMEAs first tweeted by Matt McMullen of Chiefs dot com, with Sunday’s win, the Chiefs are now 17-2 over AFC West opponents since 2015.GIF OF THE GAMEAlmost immediately after Hill’s initial punt return, I asked fans if they would send me the GIF of the play so I could post it to the website. I got this:TWEET OF THE GAMEFIVE QUOTES1. Andy Reid on Anthony Sherman and his touchdown: “I was telling [Chiefs Radio Network executive producer] Dan [Israel], he’s got crazy hands, man. You think of him as a sausage, so he goes out and he’s a sausage with hands. It’s a good thing.”2. Hill on his backflip touchdown celebration: “At the beginning of the game, I was watching the screen and one of their players did a backflip so I was like, ‘Okay, I’m going to do a backflip.’ I had to show my athletic ability. I shouldn’t have done it though because I started cramping right after. It was a bad idea.”3. Chargers QB Philip Rivers on Patrick Mahomes: On Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes: “I think he has a chance to be a really, really, really awesome player. He has some arm power. I’d like to borrow his arm every now and then for some of those throws. He can really throw, and he’s really accurate. I hadn’t seen a ton of him, but he was really accurate today on some of those balls that just came out. He seems to have that he can throw it from any arm angle and he was poised. He was poised. He’s got a chance, and I just wanted to tell him after the game, whether he wanted to hear it from me or not, that he’s got a chance to be really awesome. Just be steady and keep going. He’s still a young player. He was solid today.”4. Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn on the Tyreek Hill punt-return touchdown: “We’re going to watch the tape to find out exactly what happened, but we lost containment. We know he’s [Kansas City WR Tyreek Hill] one of the fastest guys in the country and we lost containment. He made us pay. That’s something we’ve emphasized — we’ve worked. We knew Tyreek was going to be back there. He was back there last year. I don’t think he got 10-yards last year back there. We just didn’t execute today.”5. Lynn on trying to find a way to rattle Mahomes: “There were times we put some pressure on him Youth Chris Jones Jersey , but it wasn’t enough. When we did, he moved around and made a play. Anytime we gave him a chance to extend plays, he’s at home. He did that all through his college days. We just didn’t get enough pressure on him.”THE BIG THOUGHTThough Sunday’s game was fun, it was by no means a perfectly played game, and I think Chiefs head coach Andy Reid alluded to that in his press conference. The offense seemed more ready than I thought, but as Hill shined, three of the Chiefs other weapons—Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce and Sammy Watkins—probably didn’t have the first games they would have liked. In addition, the Chargers had three wide open drops—two that could have went for touchdowns—in the first half of the game. If the Chargers make those plays that they should have, perhaps Monday isn’t as happy a day as it is for Chiefs fans. There is still much work to be done.POLL OF THE WEEK A city that has known plenty of sporting heartbreak is one win from a championship.It sure has been a while.Atlanta hasn't won a major professional title since the Braves captured the 1995 World Series . A 2-year-old soccer team has a chance to end the drought when Atlanta United hosts the Portland Timbers in the MLS Cup final Saturday night before an expected crowd of 73,000 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium."I was texting the mayor the other evening," United owner Arthur Blank said. "She's already planned on a parade, so she's ahead of me. We haven't a parade in Atlanta, a sports-related parade, since 1995. God willing and play willing, we'll be in position to do that again next week."The Braves are recognized by many as Atlanta's only true sports champions 鈥?and even their accomplishment came with a giant caveat. The team won an unprecedented 14 straight division titles, but became known mostly for its postseason failures, losing four times in the World Series and every other year but one in the earlier playoff rounds.Blank was on hand for perhaps the city's biggest disappointment. He also owns the NFL Falcons, who reached the Super Bowl for just the second time in franchise history in 2016, only to squander a 25-point lead late in the third quarter. The New England Patriots rallied for a 34-28 victory in overtime."I'm as excited about this as I was about the Super Bowl," Blank insisted, before quickly adding, "I don't want to end up with the same feeling we had several years ago."Since big-league sports arrived in Atlanta more than five decades ago, the only other team that can claim a major title is, in an interesting twist, a soccer club.The Atlanta Chiefs won the championship in the North American Soccer League's very first season in 1968 , but that event is remembered by only the most devoted fans. The Chiefs lasted a total of 10 seasons over two incarnations, but both times went out of business for lack of support. The entire league expired after the 1984 season.Enter United, which has quickly built a fan base in Major League Soccer that would fit right in with the Premier League or La Liga. Atlanta has broken essentially every MLS attendance record during its short existence Womens Anthony Hitchens Jersey , averaging more than 53,000 per game this season. Seattle posted the next-best attendance figure at just under 41,000; no other team in the 23-team league averaged as much as 27,000."We've set a new bar for performance in Major League Soccer, both on the pitch and off the pitch," Blank said. "You are what you dream about. You have to be able to visualize it to be able to execute it. We've been able to do that to the highest possible level."United's opponent in the title game is a surprise.After finishing fifth in the Western Conference, the Timbers have had three huge road victories in the playoffs. First, they eliminated Dallas 2-1 in the knockout round. Then, they won on penalty kicks in second leg at Seattle. Finally, after drawing at home in the first leg of the conference final, they rallied for a 3-2 victory at top-seeded Sporting Kansas City ."We've been absolutely lights out on the road," coach Giovanni Savarese said. "They continue to count this team out. But the good news is the players decide the outcome of the game."Timbers Army sold out its allotment of 1,300 tickets in just four minutes, assuring Portland of at least some fan support in Atlanta. Savarese complained about the arrangement, saying it was far below the 5 percent standard that FIFA recommends for road teams."I'm not trying to stir the pot," Savarese said before Friday's final training session. "You'll still hear (Portland's fans). They'll bring it and bring it hard. I just wish we had more of them. They've always traveled well, and will continue to travel well. But we need to look at that rule going forward and, frankly, that's something we should've anticipated as a league."Atlanta features the most prolific scorer in MLS history. Josef Martinez shattered the record with 31 goals , earning both the Golden Boot and the MVP award. The 25-year-old Venezuelan has kept up the pace in the playoffs, adding three more goals in United's victories over New York City and Supporters' Shield winner New York Red Bulls."It's up to us to keep him quiet," Portland defender Liam Ridgewell said. "The best way we can defend is by making them defend a lot more than we do."United will be playing its final game under coach Tata Martino , who is reportedly headed to Mexico as national team coach. The former Barcelona manager has been a huge reason for Atlanta's success, installing an attacking style of play and luring a number of quality players from his native South America."It was a great leap of faith on his part," Blank said. "We're blessed that he was our coach for these first two years."United would like nothing than to send Martino out with a championship.But this city's quest runs far deeper than that."We're definitely aware of it," goalkeeper Brad Guzan said of Atlanta's sports history. "We know about it. We hear about it. (Saturday) is not just for us as a team, as a club, as an organization. It's for the city of Atlanta. It's for the state of Georgia. We know we've got a couple of bigger causes."Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at pnewberry1963 . His work can be found at s://apnews/search/paul%20newberry
