White Amari Cooper Jersey
Golden Tate caught the pass from Matthew Stafford in stride along the sideline Dallas Cowboys Jalen Jelks Jersey , then slowed briefly to hold the ball out and show it to the defender before going into the end zone to put the Detroit Lions ahead with just over 2 minutes left in the game.There was also a 45-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown in the first quarter, a play on which Tate high-stepped his way down the other sideline before making a diving defender miss and then turning around to back into the end zone.Tate caught all eight passes thrown his way for 132 yards, but the Lions lost 26-24 on Sunday when the Dallas Cowboys got the ball last and kicked a field goal as time expired."For me personally, this sucks because celebrating stats by yourself is just no fun, and to me means nothing," Tate said. "Celebrating a big win and having bonus of stats, that's what you want to do."A week after the Lions (1-3) beat New England and new coach Matt Patricia's old boss, they couldn't hold on at the end in Dallas.As for his showboating entries into the end zone, including the late 38-yard score, Tate said he let his emotions get away from him and called it selfish play on his part.After Tate's first touchdown, Patricia said something to him on the sideline.The coach said after the game that he didn't remember what he said, then offered Womens Jalen Jelks 2019 Jersey , "Probably good job on the touchdown."When asked more specifically, the coach indicated that was an in-house issue that would stay that way."Obviously a lot of things could happen, a lot of bad things can happen, so just celebrate once you're in the end zone," Tate said. "At the end of the day, I am having fun, but I've got to put the team first."Tate, a ninth-year receiver, said the Lions want to be a disciplined group and that he has to lead by example."I can't show that to the younger guys so they think it's OK," he said. "I've got to fix it."Detroit led 24-23 after Tate's second touchdown with 2:17 remaining, but the Cowboys then got in position for Brett Maher's 38-yard field goal on the final play of the drive.On the first play after the 2-minute warning, rookie defensive end Da'Shawn Hand got to Dak Prescott Dallas Cowboys Jalen Jelks Jersey , knocking the ball out. But the Cowboys quarterback was able to scoop up the fumble and roll out to throw the ball away. That came right before Prescott's 34-yard pass to running back Ezekiel Elliott deep into Detroit territory."You go through a lot of emotions, it's up and down, but you've got to stay focused, you've got to stay in the moment, you've got to go out and execute, and that's the way the game is," Patricia said. "There's such a fine line in this league between winning and losing."2018 Dallas Cowboys rookie class falling short of previous rookie classes... so far [Ed. Note: A previous version of this article contained some incorrect data that has since been corrected, but has necessitated a partial rewrite. Apologies.]The 2018 Cowboys draft class has gotten off to a so-so start into its first NFL season, as things started off on the wrong foot almost from the beginning with this year’s rookies. First-round pick Leighton Vander Esch suffered a groin strain that kept him out of action for three preseason games. WR Cedrick Wilson suffered a shoulder injury in the first padded practice of training camp and was placed on injured reserve, which means he will not play a snap for the Cowboys until at least 2019. RB Bo Scarbrough didn’t make it through final roster cuts, and has been languishing on the practice squad.Driven partly by injuries and partly by other considerations, this year’s rookie class has only started in a somewhat disappointing five games so far. But a look at the snap counts gives us a more positive view of this draft class than the number of starts does. Here’s on overview of the offensive and defensive snaps accumulated by the 2018 draft class so far this season: The 2018 draft class has combined for 563 snaps on offense and defense Cheap Jalen Jelks Youth Jersey , which adds up to 10.2% of all snaps the offense and defense have played in four games.Compared to recent draft classes, that’s not a bad number. Here are the snap percentages of the last 11 years, keeping in mind that the data from 2007-2017 is for the full rookie seasons, while the 2018 number is for the first four weeks only. If we assume that adding the equivalent of two starters (or 9.1% of all snaps) to the roster is a good target for a rookie class, then the Cowboys look to have been fairly successful at restocking their talent cupboard over the previous five drafts, and the 2018 draft looks to have surpassed that benchmark (as measured by snap percentages), even if it comes in at the lower end of the percentages established by the recent draft classes ... so far. But it’s early days.When you ask around what constitutes a successful draft, the answer you’re most likely to get is that if you get two starters out of a rookie class, you’ve done a good job. Veteran NFL General Managers like Baltimore’s Ozzie Newsome set three starters as the benchmark for a successful draft, but those three guys don’t have to be first-year starters, eventual starters in later years count as well.Daniel Jeremiah, a former scout for the Baltimore Ravens who now works for NFL Network White Amari Cooper Jersey , explained Newsome’s thinking.Do the Cowboys have three future starters in the 2018 draft class? Connor Williams (4 starts) is already a starter. Leighton Vander Esch (1 start) looks like a future starter, especially after his standout performance against the Lions (PFF included him in their team of the week). After missing most of preseason, the Cowboys have been slowly ramping up his snap counts, and he’ll likely not be a full starter as long as Sean Lee is around (and healthy), but his future looks bright.Michael Gallup hasn’t had a start yet, but given the housecleaning likely to happen at WR after the season, he looks like a lock to be a future starter.Those three players may be enough to keep this draft class above the 9.1% threshold by the end of the season. But it sure would be nice if the rest of the draft class steps up and moves this class more in the direction of the 2013 or 2016 draft classes - even if that may not happen before next year.
