While Matt LaFleur has a whole team of Packers to coach now Josh Allen Jersey
, his relationship with quarterback Aaron Rodgers is obviously a priority. his old boss is perfect for that part of the job.Baltimore’s Robert Griffin III played under LaFleur in Washington, and he thinks LaFleur’s interpersonal skills represent one of his biggest positives.“Matt knows how to navigate those waters,” Griffin said, via Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin. “He knows how to pull out the best in people. He knows how identify and pull on what motivates you, which may be different from guy to guy.“Most importantly, he knows how to win — and ultimately, that’s something Aaron and everybody in between can jump on board with.”The Rodgers-Mike McCarthy dynamic was obviously strained, and having the new coach on the same page as their best player was clearly one of the Packers’ priorities in finding a new coach. And Lord knows there was some office drama to navigate in Washington when Griffin was there, but the years with LaFleur as his position coach were good ones.“Matt’s a great coach, and a better guy http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/jawaan-taylor-jersey-cheap
,” Griffin said. “And he never abandoned me while he was in Washington or after he left. . . .“I loved playing for Matt. He is all the things that NFL owners and executives are looking for right now — young, innovative, ambitious. When he was my QB coach in Washington in 2012 and 2013, he really helped me make the initial transition from college football to NFL football — fundamentals, footwork and just how the game is played on the pro level.”LaFleur has also earned high marks for his work with other quarterbacks, and if he can replicate that with a guy who may be the most gifted passer in the league, the Packers will have made the right choice. COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — The Chargers had struggled with their pass rush and keeping opponents out of the end zone in their first four games.But Los Angeles is hoping that Sunday’s 26-10 victory over Oakland signals a change for the rest of the season.The Chargers sacked the Raiders’ Derek Carr three times and allowed only one touchdown. They had allowed the fifth-most points in the league and were ranked in the bottom half of the league in sacks and quarterback pressures after the first quarter of the season.“A game like that should give them a lot of confidence. Our defense is getting better,” coach Anthony Lynn said Monday.The Chargers (3-2) have not been at full strength defensively all season, but they are starting to get some valuable players back. Defensive tackle Corey Liuget returned from his four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancers Josh Oliver Jersey
, which helped free up the number of times that Melvin Ingram was double-teamed.Ingram, who struggled during the first three games, has played better in the past two. Ingram tied for the team lead in tackles with seven along with a sack and his first regular-season interception.Philip Rivers and the offense converted both Raiders’ turnovers into touchdowns.“If we can create turnovers and get our offense the ball, we got one of the most high-powered offenses in this league, so we are trying to get them the ball every time we can,” Ingram said.Another reason for the Chargers’ success against the Raiders was that they were stingy on third down. They came into the Oakland game allowing the fourth-highest conversion rate on third down (46.8 percent), but the Raiders converted just one of six during the first half and four of 11 for the game.One area where the Chargers have done well the first five weeks is stopping the run. Oakland’s Marshawn Lynch came into the game fourth in the league in rushing, but was held to 31 yards on nine carries.Los Angeles has allowed only 100-yard rusher all season (the Rams’ Todd Gurley) despite also facing Kansas City’s Kareem Hunt, Buffalo’s LeSean McCoy and San Francisco’s Matt Breida. Six running backs went over the century mark against the Chargers last season, including Hunt twice.They will face a big challenge this week against Cleveland (2-2-1) http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/quincy-williams-ii-jersey-cheap
, which is No. 2 in the league in rushing offense with Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb and mobile quarterback Baker Mayfield.Lynn said that defensive end Joey Bosa, who has missed all five games because of a foot injury, could practice this week in a limited capacity. Even if Bosa isn’t back until after the Oct. 28 bye week, Lynn is seeing his unit make more progress in making plays without Bosa.“We’re starting to get more comfortable with the different schemes we are doing,” Lynn said. “We are doing some different things with coverages and also bringing different people on blitzes.”NOTES: Lynn said that Caleb Sturgis will be the kicker against the Browns despite missing his fourth extra point on Sunday. Sturgis is likely to remain the kicker for at least two more games, but needs to gain consistency if he is going to keep his job. … Right tackle Joe Barksdale could return to practice this week but will be limited. Barksdale has missed the past four games after suffering a knee injury in the Sept. 9 opener against Kansas City.
