The 2018-2019 NFL playoffs continue today with the NFC Championship

 game between the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints. The
Rams did their job last week and eliminated the Dallas Cowboys from the
playoffs. They ran the ball down their throats ,
and hope to do the same today against the #1 seed Saints.The Saints also took
care of business in the dome last week when the knocked the Eagles out of the
playoffs. The Saints will need to start faster than they did last week when they
went down 14-0 in the 1st quarter. The team stepped up though and shut the
Eagles out while scoring 20 points to secure the win. This is going to be a
great game.Who: #2 Los Angeles Rams(14-3) vs #1 New Orleans Saints(14-3)Date:

Redskins GM — KEEP or CUT, you make the call The Redskins have had surprising
play from some players this off-season, both good and bad.We all know that, come
31 August, finalizing the roster is a numbers game.More than 1,200 players
league-wide will get their walking papers in the next week.Players ‘on the
bubble’ have to find a way to shine in camp and in preseason games, despite the
fact that whatever they do comes with the caveat that it was done against the
other team’s second & third string players, so somehow, it doesn’t seem to
mean as much.Still, certain players have been able to grab the attention of Jay
Gruden and his staff from tryouts Authentic
Alex Smith Jersey
, to mini-camp, to OTAs, to training camp by
“making plays”.Guys fighting to be the fifth linebacker or safety, or the sixth
wide receiver need to make multiple outstanding plays against the opponents in
preseason games, and often it’s a great tackle on a punt or the ability to
occupy a double team and give your teammate a shot at the running back that
makes the difference to coaches.Fans tend to focus on the spectacular, whether
it’s spectacularly good or spectacularly bad.Martez Carter and Samaje Perine,
for example, both picked up a bit of hype when they broke big runs against the
Jets.Cam Sims had fans first groaning in pain with his
dropped-pass-turned-interception versus the Jets, then later had the same fans
cheering him for his jaw-dropping catch in the end zone nullified by a
penalty.I’m not sure how many fans realized that it was Cam Sims himself who
created the penalty that negated that great TD catch by lining up off the line
of scrimmage to create an illegal formation penalty.On the next play, Sims had
both hands on the ball for what would have been an admittedly tough catch, and
he dropped it.Just about everyone has an opinion on whether he belongs on the
team.Meanwhile, not many people will have equally clear ideas about the
competition for backup center that involves Bergstrom Authentic
D.J. Swearinger Jersey
, Rhaney and Dunn; though, if you noticed
one play where one of these guys gave up a sack, or a different play where they
pancaked the defensive lineman they were blocking, then your opinion of whether
he belongs on the roster might be shaped by that one play.The point is, it’s not
all-good or all-bad for any given player on the bubble, and fans don’t always
evaluate players the way coaches do.Hustle, hard work, practice habits and
intelligence all count.Of course, making big plays... a lot of big plays...
trumps the rest.But very few players only make big plays.Like Cam Sims’
performance against the Jets, you gotta take the good with the bad.In the end,
if you’re a player, what counts is what the coaching staff and the personnel
decision-makers think of you.This time last year Authentic
Montae Nicholson Jersey
, no one was 100% sure what would happen to
Chase Roullier, Maurice Harris, Anthony Lanier or Josh Harvey-Clemons.Talent
evaluation is a tough business, but when preseason ends there are only 53 spaces
available and 90 names still on the back of the jerseys.Somebody’s gotta go...
in fact, a lot of somebodies.As Hue Jackson so eloquently puts it, every player
has to earn his stripes.Today, as we approach the end of the preseason, with
‘decision day’ coming upon us quickly, I invite you to enter the world of
“suppose”.Suppose you are the GM of the Redskins.All but one roster spot has
been decided, and you have to make the final choice.Whom do you keep?Whom do you
cut?I’ve put nine different poll questions below, but I’d invite you to answer
each poll question individually --independent from the others.In other words,
for each poll question Womens
Mason Foster Jersey
, assume that all other decisions have been
made, and all you have to decide is: Between the players listed in that poll
question, whom do you keep, and whom do you cut?NOTE that some poll questions
say KEEP, and some say CUT.They are not all the same.If you want to add some
different choices than the ones I’ve proffered and explain your thinking in the
comments, feel free.Today, you are in charge of Redskins personnel.You decide
who is on the roster that lines up against the Cardinals in two
weeks. Custom Los Angeles
