There are a couple of things we know about the quarterback situation in Arizona after the retirement of Carson Palmer.
As NFL.com’s Chris Wesseling reported, Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks indicated that veteran Sam Bradford will open the season as the team’s starter under center over rookie first-rounder Josh Rosen.
“We’re pushing everybody to start,” Wilks explained. “I’ve stated this several times: Sam Bradford is our starter. We gotta go out there with 11 guys, and Sam’s going to be the first guy out there. But everybody’s fighting for a position, so I’m not going to hold [Rosen] back at all.”
However, we also know Bradford’s bum knee has already cost him all of the 2014 season and most of last year. Bradford has missed a staggering 48 games in seven years—three full seasons.
Even if Bradford holds off Rosen in training camp, discount nike nfl jerseys it’s only a matter of time until Rosen gets a chance to show what he can do.
And once he gets that chance, odds are the job will be his for good.
Projected Passing Stats (Bradford): 225 attempts, 145 completions, 1,465 yards, 8 touchdowns, 3 interceptions
Projected Passing Stats (Rosen): 358 attempts, 224 completions, 2,431 yards, 14 touchdowns, 7 interceptions
To say that Matt Ryan’s numbers were discount nfl gear down in 2017 is both accurate and a touch misleading.
Yes, relative to Ryan’s MVP campaign in 2016, the 33-year-old’s production was lower across the board. His passing yardage was down almost 1,000 yards, Ryan’s touchdowns free-fell from 38 to 20, and he threw five more interceptions in 2017 than the year before.discount nfl jerseys nike
However, it’s not like Ryan had a bad year under first-year offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. He passed for almost 4,100 yards, posted a passer rating of 91.4 and led the Falcons back to the playoffs.cheap nfl jerseys discount
Ryan may never get all the way back to his Kyle Shanahan heyday statistically, but he has no shortage of passing-game weaponry at his disposal, from superstar wideout Julio Jones to rookie Calvin Ridley and tailbacks Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.
With a year in Sarkisian’s offense under his belt, Ryan’s numbers should be better in 2018 than a year ago, even if he doesn’t reach the heights of the season that came before.
