Cheap Authentic Jerseys
The same 11 Steelers defenders barely left the field during two playoff victories last season, largely because they stopped drives by the Dolphins and Chiefs so quickly.Jerseys For Sale.Ten of those 11 players are back this season, with the exception being linebacker Lawrence Timmons, a veteran whose departure was telling.Colbert previously made mistakes by holding on to Steelers stalwarts too long. Timmons was a great contributor for a decade, but keeping him would have slowed down an otherwise-speedy linebacker group. Not to mention, Timmons’ old position as an every-down inside linebacker might no longer exist in Tomlin’s vision.This is not your drunk uncle’s Steelers 3-4 defense. Tomlin and defensive coordinator Keith Butler mix up their alignments like most of the rest of the NFL, playing with four down linemen often (depending on the opponent’s strength).Cheap NFL Jerseys China.The secondary incorporates more of the Cover 3 and Cover 2 zone-defense looks Tomlin grew up with. He’s able to get more creative up front because his foundation players are so versatile.The Steelers were a different defense after outside linebacker Bud Dupree returned from a sports hernia surgery in Week 12. Dupree picked up sacks lining up from three different positions and had a surprisingly big role in coverage.
When the Texans drafted Clowney with the No. 1 overall pick in 2014, they had dreams of putting him as a bookend with arguably the game’s best, Watt, on the other side.But knee injuries sabotaged Clowney’s rookie season and then slowed him in 2015.Cheap China Jerseys.Watt, meanwhile, racked up two Defensive Player of the Year awards in those seasons. When Clowney finally got healthy and earned his first Pro Bowl bid last season, it was Watt who missed most of the year with a back injury.But now Watt’s been cleared and Clowney’s knee issues are in the past. Finally, the Texans’ 2014 visions are coming to fruition.”When I was healthy, when I got healthy, he got hurt,” Clowney said. “When he was healthy, I was hurt. We’ve never really been on the field together at the same time healthy.”I feel like we can all be out there together, me and him and the rest of guys and just stay healthy, we’re going to be a special defense.”Cheap Football Jerseys.In just 25 career starts, Clowney has 10.5 sacks and 99 tackles and has developed into one of the league’s best run stoppers. In 83 career starts, Watt has 76 sacks, 379 tackles and is arguably the league’s best defensive player. Those two, combined with fellow Texans’ pass rusher Whitney Mercilus, who’s logged 19.5 sacks in 25 starts the last two years, have Clowney envisioning the Texans repeating as the top defense once again in 2017.
