People are stuck on the old Blake Bortles, the one that lost a lot with a franchise that struggled a lot.

Indeed, the Raiders were less fortunate in a lot of ways in 2017. That they might regress wasn’t really a surprise. They went 8-1 in games decided by seven points or less last season, a skill that tends not to correlate from year to year. Nor does turnover margin: The Raiders went plus-16 last season, tied for the first in the league, and fell to minus-12, 29th.

Womens Nick Bjugstad Jersey But natural regression doesn’t account entirely for the Raiders’ drop 锟斤拷 they may not have been 12 wins good last season, but they were still plus-31 in point differential and a legitimately explosive offense by almost any measure.

The fact that Carr was returning to the helm of that offense was perhaps the biggest reason to be bullish on the Raiders. He simply wasn’t as good in 2017, however. Carr’s passer rating dropped from 96.7 to Hisashi Iwakuma Authentic Jersey 86.0, which had to do in parts to: a) natural comedown, b) worse running support (and that had something to do with the new zone blocking scheme), and c) a transverse process fracture in his back.

If Carr isn’t maybe quite as good as his 2016 season suggested, he is almost certainly better than a 2017 season that hasn’t been that bad 锟斤拷 at least, statistically. He still threw significantly more touchdowns than interceptions, for example 锟斤拷 21 to 12.

It’s not easy to avoid tension when a 40-year-old QB is breaking the mold of everything we know about football. But that’s Tom Brady — fresh on his way to another Super Bowl.

Amendola called Brady the toughest guy I’ve ever met, but he said his close friend was stressed out a bit. Physically, it’s hard to throw with stitches in your thumb.

Brady called it a little injury, but he acknowledged it was complicated for a quarterback because of its placement. He said he wasn’t sure what happened, but he reportedly collided with running back Rex Burkhead on a handoff.

It’s unbelievable what he does, Burkhead said. The injuries he fights through and playing football at 40 years old is unreal. For him to do that and go out there and continue to make plays is unbelievable. It’s why he’s the greatest.
