Youth Calvin Ridley Jersey

Antonio Brown insists he's still in sync with Ben Roethlisberger even though their numbers together are down.Roethlisberger and Brown are one of the most prolific quarterback-wide receiver tandems in NFL history Youth Calvin Ridley Jersey , but the duo has struggled to find a rhythm through four games as Pittsburgh has stumbled to a 1-2-1 start.They'll seek consistency entering the Steelers' home game Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons."It's like Wi-Fi," Brown said Friday. "Sometimes the connection is poor. Sometimes the connection is great. But it's always connected."Brown eclipsed 1,500 yards receiving three of the last four years and is the only player in NFL history to have five straight seasons with at least 100 receptions. Last season, the four-time All-Pro averaged 15.2 yards per catch on 101 receptions and he led the league with 1,533 yards, but his statistics are down this year.Brown's 53 targets are second-most in the league, but he has just 29 receptions for 272 yards receiving and a 9.4-yard per catch average, well below his 13.4-yard career mark. Brown maintained Friday that his relationship with Roethlisberger is strong."Me and Ben laugh about (the media) creating drama, writing about us Womens Robert Alford Jersey , trying to create adversity and distractions," Brown said. "We actually text about it. We communicate a lot on text messages about you guys."Roethlisberger and Brown have connected on 723 completions, good for the fourth-most in NFL history between a quarterback and wide receiver. Their 62 touchdowns are the most in franchise history, and one score Sunday will tie Roethlisberger and Brown for No. 10 all-time with Johnny Unitas and Raymond Berry.Roethlisberger, who currently ranks second in the league with 1,414 passing yards, blamed himself for Brown's slow start."I think I just have to play better to help him get his numbers, which would help us get wins," Roethlisberger said.Last week against Baltimore Womens Ryan Schraeder Jersey , Brown caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets. He was targeted five times in the second half, but caught one pass for five yards as Pittsburgh managed just 47 yards of offense after halftime during a 26-14 loss.Brown believes a win against the Falcons can cure the Steelers' woes."We're going to make our plays," said Brown, who needs one touchdown catch to tie John Stallworth for third-most in franchise history. "The plays will be there. We just gotta find a way to win."Steelers' coach Mike Tomlin expects Roethlisberger and Brown to rebound."They'll smooth it out," Tomlin said. "Oftentimes people spend a lot of time to minimize tandems such as (Roethlisberger and Brown), and usually over the course of the journey the cream rises, and they'll show what they are capable of. They have done it for a long time. They'll be the formidable tandem that they always are."NOTES: S Morgan Burnett (groin), LB Vince Williams (hamstring) and WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle) are all listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Atlanta. Burnett would miss his third straight game. Williams' streak of 83 consecutive regular-season games played — fourth-longest among active NFL linebackers — is expected to end. CB Mike Hilton is expected to return after missing the Ravens game with an elbow injury.Great things which aren’t as good as the Falcons’ new season Rejoice, my friends who are just as in love with the sport of football as I am! Football season is finally upon us once again.We’ve had to bear through the famine of the NFL dead period in between the April draft and late-July training camp. We’ve sat through the Georgia heat and humidity in the middle of that training camp to watch the team practice , because that was the first taste of football we had since the brisk days of January.When the preseason rolled around, we all pretended to be happy about it, but let’s face it — the preseason sucks. It’s football that doesn’t matter, where more bad can happen than good because of injuries. Dan Quinn realizes this, and that’s why we didn’t see Devonta Freeman or Julio Jones at all this preseason.But now, all of that is finally behind us. We’ve made it to the light at the end of the tunnel, and our reward is that we get to be accompanied by the game of football for the next 17+ Sunday afternoons. The Atlanta Falcons start to play meaningful football this Thursday, Sept. 6, against the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.Back in May , I wrote out a list of sucky things better than the NFL dead period. Today, I’ll present you with something a bit more positive — a list of great things that aren’t quite as good as the NFL season. Let’s just call it a sequel.Autumn weather when the humidity goes away and the days become a bit coolerGetting to go home from work early on a FridayThree-day weekendsHaving a song stuck in your head forever and then finally remembering what it isBaseball seasonBasketball seasonThe 2016 Atlanta Falcons offenseThe 2017 Atlanta Falcons defenseThe smell of freshly cut grassWhen you’re a kid and you finally get that update on the news that your school is closing down the next day because of snow (I know, that’s more of a southern thing)A fresh chicken biscuit from Chick-Fil-A in the morningWhen you’re falling asleep and someone throws a blanket around youA deep-tissue massageA cold drink on a hot summer dayThose first few seconds of bliss and excitement after your song comes on in the car and you just realized that it came on.Jamming out to a song on full blast in the car with the squadEating Doritos while watching the Super BowlSeasons 4-9 of “The Simpsons”Being in line and thinking that you’re about to wait for a long time and then it starts moving quicklyLemon pepper wingsFinding out someone has gum when you really need someA sweet gym pump right before going outPlaying with your dog or cat (we love both around here)Shutting someone up in an online argument when they disrespect Matt RyanHaving unwanted plans with someone and them canceling before you doA full tank of gasFresh morning coffeeWearing a comfortable sweater or hoodie on a cold dayReally needing a writing utensil and then randomly finding a pencil/pen on the ground (note: This never happens. You only find that pen/pencil when you don’t really need it)Having an exhausting day and instantly falling asleep as soon as your head touches the pillow in bedWhen your birthday comes and you wake up to a bunch of “Happy Birthday!” texts from your friends, family and loved onesWhen your phone is fully chargedBuying something from the vending machine and unexpectedly getting two things for the price of oneFinding a $20 bill in your jeansGetting to a packed parking lot right as a car is leaving and vacating a solitary parking spotThe feeling of confidence after a fresh haircutWe’ve finally made it, my friends. Let’s now enjoy this wonderful time from September through January because it always flies by way too quickly. I hope your days in football season are blissful, and that the Falcons have a wonderful season where they make all of us proud.What are some great things which you feel aren’t as good as football season?
