Brent Venables might think twice about blitzing Texas QB Quinn Ewers

Preparing for Quinn Ewers isn’t as simple as Venables indicated.

Shutting down freshmen quarterbacks is usually simple and straightforward. Throw complex blitzes and coverages at him and rattle his cage. It might not be that simple for Oklahoma on Saturday.

Quinn Ewers’ arm talent is well documented. Albeit, his instincts and ability to keep composure rival his arm strength for his best trait.

Ewers has an innate ability to make plays on the fly. Some call him a gunslinger for that reason. In addition, Ewers is a cold-blooded assassin in the pocket, unfazed by adverse situations he is presented with on Saturdays.

Can you rattle a quarterback who fearlessly stared down the team of the last decade in his second start? I will have to see it first.

The Longhorns can also count on three players for which Oklahoma has no answer. Texas can get the ball to Xavier Worthy, Bijan Robinson and Ja’Tavion Sanders fairly quickly. If Oklahoma blitzes, they better get to the quarterback quickly.

Shutting down Quinn Ewers is not going to be a simple task for Oklahoma. Brent Venables will need to bring his best game plan of the season on Saturday.

Florida vs Missouri Game Preview

Why Missouri Will Win

There hasn’t been a lick of luck over the last few games, but the Tigers are playing well.

They had the win six inches away against Auburn, but RB Nathaniel Peat dropped the ball before crossing the goal line in the 17-14 loss.

It always felt like Georgia was going to rise up and get the job done in Columbia, but Mizzou gave the defending national champ a whale of a fight last week in a 26-22 loss.

What’s it doing right?

The offense hasn’t been anything special, but it didn’t turn it over against the Bulldogs and there was just one giveaway before Peat’s fateful final dash against the Tigers.

The defense has been terrific against the run, it has been great on third downs, and overall the team is able to control games by owning the clock – Mizzou leads the SEC and is fifth in the nation in time of possession.

NFL Expert Picks, Week 5

Why Florida Will Win

There’s the Anthony Richardson we’ve all been waiting for.

He didn’t throw a touchdown pass over the first three games, and then he unleashed his skills with 453 yards and two scores in the wild loss to Tennessee.

He didn’t have to do much in the Sunday morning blowout over Eastern Washington, but he’s playing well enough now to start doing even more with the passing game.

The Gator offensive line – helped by the system – is keeping defenses out of the backfield, Richardson is hitting the big shots down the field, and the running game is ripping off yards in chunks.

However …

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

The Florida defense isn’t coming up with enough third down stops, the offense will be on the field for about 25 minutes – Missouri will always seem like it has the ball – and coming off a short week won’t help.

It’ll be a fight. Missouri will once again get into the fourth quarter with a shot at pulling this off, and once again, it’ll come up just short.

It won’t be a pretty or even performance from Florida, but it’s still trying to put it all together in a must win with LSU, Georgia, and Texas A&M up next.

Oklahoma State vs Texas Tech Game Preview

Why Texas Tech Will Win

The passing game has been fantastic.

It’s different than the Texas Tech offense you might be used to from the past, but the O is throwing for a Big 12-leading 362 yards per game and it should be able to keep up the pace.

Oklahoma State might be rolling, but it struggled late against the Central Michigan passing attack – to be fair, the game was effectively over – and last week it got bombed on by Baylor.

The yards will be there. Texas Tech QB Donovan Smith is playing well, and he’ll hit the 300-yard mark if he gets a little bit of time.

The Red Raider defense is good on third downs, it has been disruptive enough to stall the NC State attack and keep Texas and Houston from going off, but …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 5

Why Oklahoma State Will Win

The Texas Tech run defense is starting to buckle.

The offense might have been terrific over the last few weeks, but the defensive front was destroyed last week by Kansas State allowing almost nine yards per carry in the 37-28 loss, and Bijan Robinson and Texas rolled in the wild overtime Red Raider win.

Oklahoma State’s offense will hit a few downfield shots, but it’s more balanced and efficient than splashy. There aren’t any big negatives – the scoring is there and it all works hand-in-hand with the defense.

The O line is terrific in pass protection, the defense is a rock on third down conversions, and there the bunches of penalties or sloppy mistakes Texas Tech will need.

The secondary will give up plenty of yards, and then it’ll hold up when it has to because …

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

The Oklahoma State defensive front will live in the Texas Tech backfield.

QB Donovan Smith and the Red Raider offense keep on producing no matter what, but the Cowboys are generating three sacks and more than nine tackles for loss per game.

Texas Tech will allow five sacks, it’ll stall on a few early second half drives, and that’s when the steady Oklahoma State offense will take over. It’ll be another interesting game for both teams, and it’ll be another strong win for the Cowboys.

More on this storyline

Let’s talk about you dropping 38 at the Garden on Kobe. I remember watching it, as an Asian guy and a Knicks fan, and being blown away by what I was seeing. I never thought I’d see an Asian dude cooking Kobe Bryant at Madison Square Garden. And Kobe talked some shit about you before the game, which seemed to kick you into another gear. Jeremy Lin: Yeah, for sure. That’s a great way to describe it. I was already in the zone and had three good games, and I grew up being a Warriors fan in the Bay Area, so we did not like the Lakers and did not like Kobe. And then he extra-gassed me by what he’d said before the game. I felt slighted and disrespected, and all those things put me in a place of, I’m going for it tonight. It was just, if I don’t know what I’m doing, I’m firing it up at the rim. If it doesn’t go in then it doesn’t go in, but it won’t be because I’m not gonna shoot it. -via The Daily Beast / October 5, 2022
“These young kids, their careers are shortening,” Iguodala said. “And it’s a reason — because they’re trying to chew too much off of it before it should be occurring. It’s like an evolution. I had a really good conversation with one of the execs in the league and he says we’ve got to raise the bottom of our league because we’re having too high of a turnover. … It took Kobe Bryant some years to really become Kobe Bryant. … We aren’t letting these kids fail. They’re failing and we’re just criticizing them. We’re writing them off, and then they don’t have an opportunity. We’ve got guys out the league at 21, 22, which is crazy. Right? So I think it’s just letting them develop. Let them go through actual hardships. Let them go through a rookie wall. … We’ve all got to go through it. It’s just a part of the maturation process for our young guys.” -via The Athletic / October 4, 2022
Kristaps Porzingis was dubbed the ‘Unicorn’ by Durant early in his career because he was especially unique, but now there are a few players with the same pedigree following in his footsteps. “Dirk Nowitzki was a superstar and of course he made the style of play much more acceptable by what he was doing and for everyone else after him. I grew up watching him, I grew up watching Pau Gasol and Kobe [Bryant],” Porzingis told NBC Sports Washington. “No matter what my height was, I kind of wanted to play like that and take things from their games. Hopefully, I can do the same for the next generation coming up.” -via NBC Sports / October 3, 2022
Barnes has the two necessary traits that make for a future star: an undeniable charisma and the work ethic to get better. He also has something, that fair or not, most second-year players on established winning teams do not — the burden of having his individual trajectory inextricably tied up with the ceiling of his squad. “He’s just got to keep getting better. He’s young. It’s rough. It’s early. It will happen,” teammate Fred VanVleet said. “It sucks for the fans and it will suck for you guys because nobody knows when it’s going to happen. But we all see the star power. We see the potential. It’ll happen at some point.” -via The Athletic / October 4, 2022
VanVleet is hoping he’s able to say the same thing once he reaches the latter stages of his playing career. “It’s a 12-month season now, year ‘round,” said a noticeably slimmer VanVleet, about to begin his seventh NBA campaign. “Hopefully I can stay on this regimen the rest of my career. “There’s always gonna be new changes and things you have to adjust and adapt to as you try to grow. I’ve had a hell of a run so far, so to continue to try to keep growing is going to be challenging every year but I’m up for it.” -via TSN / September 28, 2022
Michael Grange: I asked VanVleet if his off-season training adjustments included switching to a plant-based diet as has become more common for elite athletes: “No. Not quite. If I can get a percentage of a plant-based company I might.” -via Twitter @michaelgrange / September 28, 2022

49ers roster moves: Jason Verrett, Jimmie Ward practice windows officially opened

The #49ers made some roster moves and officially opened the practice windows for two of their veteran DBs.

The 49ers on Wednesday officially announced cornerback Jason Verrett and free safety Jimmie Ward had their practice windows opened. Wide receiver Willie Snead IV also returned to the club’s practice squad.

It’s not a surprise to see Verrett and Ward back since head coach Kyle Shanahan has intimated for the last couple weeks that they’d be back for Week 5 practices when they were eligible to return from injured lists.

Verrett was on the PUP list while coming back from a torn ACL he suffered in Week 1 last year. Ward had a hamstring injury from the preseason that wound up landing him on IR. Both players were required to miss four weeks before returning to the field.

The 49ers will have three weeks to either add Verrett and Ward to their roster or put them on season-ending IR.

Shanahan said the team would ease both players back into practice, and both had a chance to play in Week 5 against the Panthers depending on how the week of practice goes.

San Francisco also re-signed Snead to their practice squad after releasing him from their active roster Tuesday.

Interesting nuggets from Teddy Bridgewater’s first press conference as Dolphins starter

This isn’t a new situation for the veteran.

Having been named the Miami Dolphins Week 5 starting quarterback heading into a road game against the New York Jets, Teddy Bridgewater met with South Florida media Wednesday morning.

Bridgewater, who’s a hometown Miami-raised product, was all smiles talking about the opportunity he has, especially when talking about the trials and tribulations he’s had on the injury front during his career.

“I just take it one day at a time. Because at the end of the day, I look at all this as a blessing,” he told reporters.

Bridgewater, who was nearly out of football following a devastating knee injury while a Minnesota Viking, had a remarkable comeback, which ironically started as a member of the Jets practice squad in 2018.

“The year I spent OTAs and training camp with the Jets. I look at it as they helped save my career,” Bridgewater said.

It was a former Dolphins interim head coach who helped him back in New York.

“When I signed with the Jets, it really was like on a tryout basis almost with Todd Bowles, the head coach, and ‘J Mel’ (John Mellody) the trainer, he helped me get back to my old self health-wise,” Bridgewater described.

He then went on to praise Bowles saying, “his charisma and his energy helped me just continue to get that confidence back for myself. Then when they traded me, it was like everything happens for a reason.”

A 2014 first-round pick with Minnesota, Bridgewater was named to the Pro Bowl in 2015. Following his 2016 injury and comeback with the Jets, Bridgewater ended up as a backup to Drew Brees in New Orleans for the Saints in 2018. In 2019, Bridgewater went 5-0 for the Saints in Brees’ absence from injury.

Bridgewater even referenced his former teammate when asked about being a seasoned backup, and now getting a start opportunity.

“Honestly, just be yourself,” he said confidently. “I can’t be Tua (Tagovailoa). I had to learn a lesson when I was in New Orleans. I couldn’t be Drew Brees.”

In his career, Bridgewater is 33-30 across his four previous stops and enters his first start for the Dolphins. He’s the 24th quarterback to start for Miami since Dan Marino retired following the 1999 season.

As for this week and looking towards the Jets, Bridgewater is 2-0 in his career against New York. In those games, he’s totaled 544 yards and a pair of touchdowns with a passer rating of 111.4 and a 73.08% completion percentage. It’s also to be noted that he has the highest yards per attempt mark at 10.46 as well as adjusted yards per attempt (10.37) in his career against the Jets.

Last season, he led the Denver Broncos to a shutout win over New York, 26-0. He went 19-25 for 235 with a passer rating of 104.6 and also rushed four times for 24 yards. Bridgewater started 14 games for the Broncos, completing 285-of-426 passes (66.9 pct.) for 3,052 yards and 18 touchdowns. His 94.9 passer rating was 12th in the NFL last season.

The smile on his face grew when he mentioned that he played little league football five minutes down the road from where he’s practicing as a pro. He said the community is excited, as is he, for him getting the start for his hometown Dolphins.

“It’s a huge blessing to be able to just suit up in my hometown. I played little league football five minutes down the road at Bunche Park,” he happily told media members. “If I go to the Northwestern game on Friday night, everybody will be excited.”

Bridgewater has seen some great support locally, saying, “I really appreciate that from my community and my people. I know they’re excited that I get this opportunity. I’m looking forward to it.”

Clearly, Bridgewater has the experience and confidence to carry Miami through this temporary storm of uncertainty with Tagovailoa.

He has the traits to get a win, or multiple if needed, and as he describes, “as long as I continue to be myself, the guys realize this guy isn’t faking. He’s not trying to be something he’s not.

“It’s like it’s a sense of relief. Like okay, we know we’re getting the real version of him. He’s not trying to be something he’s not. That’s just my approach every day.”

Colts’ keys to victory vs. Broncos in Week 5

Here are the Colts’ keys to victory against the Broncos in Week 5.

After a disappointing loss at home to the Tennessee Titans, the Indianapolis Colts (1-2-1) are now looking up in the AFC South and hoping to turn the season around.

However, they don’t have a lot of time to regroup as the team will travel to Denver to take on the Broncos on Thursday night. Combine the road trip with the list of injuries for the Colts, it might be tough sledding for Frank Reich and company.

Denver is also dealing with injuries to key offensive players which should help even the score. This will be a hard-fought battle between two teams desperately hoping to save their 2022 campaigns.

Here are the keys to victory for the Colts on Thursday night:
