Custom Billy Howton Jersey Large

 

The finalists at quarterback for the NFL 100 All-Time Team were announced Monday night, and Bills legend Jim Kelly was not among them.

Kelly is among a dozen Pro Football Hall of Famers who did not make the list: Warren Moon, Sonny Jurgensen, Y.A. Tittle, Len Dawson, George Blanda, Kurt Warner, Ken Stabler, Bob Griese, Bob Waterfield, Arnie Herber and Benny Friedman.

The finalists, in alphabetical order: Troy Aikman, Sammy Baugh, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, John Elway, Brett Favre, Dan Fouts, Otto Graham, Bobby Layne, Sid Luckman, Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, Joe Montana, Joe Namath, Aaron Rodgers, Bart Starr, Roger Staubach, Fran Tarkenton, Johnny Unitas, Norm Van Brocklin and Steve Young.

The quarterbacks on the NFL 100 All-Time Team will be announced at 8 p.m. Friday on the NFL Network.

Kelly, a five-time Pro Bowler, ranks 28th in career touchdown passes with 238 and had nine years in the top 10 in the league. His 35,467 passing yards are 27th and he had six seasons in the top 10.

But no matter how you look at the stats, he won – and won often, leading the Bills to four consecutive Super Bowls.

The response to Kelly’s exclusion on social media was swift. Here is a sampling:

Troy Aikman makes this list and you stiff Jim Kelly?!? Ryan Fitzpatrick is a better QB than Aikman was. This entire all time team just needs to go away. Terrible job

Custom Arnie Herber Jersey Large

 

When Billy Howton retired from pro football following the 1963 season, he held NFL records for most career receptions and receiving yards. While Howton’s career spanned 12 seasons in all, he spent the first seven in Green Bay where he was well on his way to breaking what were arguably the two most prestigious records set by Packers immortal Don Hutson two decades earlier.

As it turned out, Howton’s records didn’t last long and, fair or not, it has probably diminished his legacy. Raymond Berry of the Baltimore Colts broke Howton’s record for most catches one year later and surpassed his yardage record three years later.

Nevertheless, entering the 1970 season, following the completion of the merger between the National and American football leagues, only two receivers in the 50-year history of the NFL, Berry and Bobby Mitchell, had more catches than Howton and only Berry had gained more yards.

Howton caught 303 of his 503 career receptions in Green Bay. He also gained 5,581 of his 8,459 yards with the Packers and averaged 18.4 yards per catch with them compared to his career average of 16.8. Of his 61 career touchdowns, Howton scored 43 with the Packers, including 13 in a 12-game season as a rookie.

He also led the NFL in receiving yards as a rookie with 1,231 and, again, in 1956 with 1,188. In fact, he was the first rookie in NFL history to gain more than 1,000 yards on pass receptions and his 1,231-yard rookie total also broke Hutson’s club record for receiving yards in a season.

On Oct. 21, 1957, Howton set the Packers’ record for most receiving yards in a game. He caught seven passes that day for 257 yards against the Los Angeles Rams. “For my money, Howton is the toughest pass receiver to cover in the National League,” future Pro Football Hall of Fame safety Emlen Tunnell said before the 1958 season, Howton’s last in Green Bay.

Howton also was the first player to catch a touchdown pass at what is now Lambeau Field. On Sept. 29, 1957, the day the stadium was dedicated, he caught a 37-yard touchdown pass from Babe Parilli and the Packers went on to beat the Chicago Bears, 21-17.

“I’ll tell you a guy who is overlooked (as a Pro Football Hall of Fame candidate) is Billy Howton,” said Berry, who was inducted into Canton in 1973, his first year of eligibility, and went on to be a longtime NFL coach. “(Howton) was extremely professional in his pass routes. He knew what he was doing to maneuver and fake to get open. He would be effective going inside, going outside, effective going deep. He was an extremely dangerous receiver and had great technique.”

The Packers drafted Howton in the second round in 1952. Two years earlier, they had drafted his quarterback at Rice, Tobin Rote, and they would play together for five seasons in Green Bay. In all, Howton played in 80 games for the Packers.

He was traded to Cleveland on April 24, 1959, within three months after Vince Lombardi was hired as general manager and head coach. In return, Lombardi received defensive end Bill Quinlan and halfback Lew Carpenter. Howton played one year in Cleveland and four with Dallas before retiring following the 1963 season. Howton also was the first president and one of the driving forces behind the creation of the National Football League Players Association in 1956.

Born July 5, 1930, in Littlefield, Texas. Given name William Harris Howton.

Custom Bart Starr Jersey Large

Joe Namath and Bart Starr are among the 22 quarterback finalists for the NFL 100 All-Time Team.

Custom Boyd Dowler Jersey Large

 

Boyd Dowler was cut from a different cloth than most NFL receivers of his day if for no other reason than his size. But he was more than just big. He was a special athlete blessed with sure hands, a gift for running every route on the passing tree with precision and unusual speed for someone 6-foot-5 and 224 pounds.

As a senior at Colorado, Dowler qualified for the NCAA Track & Field Championships in the 120-yard high hurdles, ample evidence that even if there were plenty of shorter, faster receivers in the league during his era, he, too, possessed an extra gear to separate from cornerbacks on fly patterns and other deep routes.

Having doubled as a quarterback and receiver in college, Dowler also had a keen understanding of the passing game and used it to his advantage. Likewise, he was the son of a high school football coach and like most coaches’ sons grasped better than others the subtle nuances of the game.

“When Boyd said something to you about how he was going to do it or what he could do in a game, he was telling you exactly the way it was,” said former quarterback Zeke Bratkowski. “He wasn’t fishing, looking for statistics. He was looking to move the football.”

Consistency was Dowler’s trademark. He started on all five of Vince Lombardi’s NFL championship teams and either led the Packers in receptions or tied for first in seven of his 11 seasons. At the same time, he made his share of big plays, many of them succinctly described by Lombardi-era broadcaster Ray Scott’s signature call, “Starr. Dowler. Touchdown!”

Two of Dowler’s biggest plays were his two TDs in the first half of the Ice Bowl on receptions of 8 and 43 yards, which allowed the Packers to jump ahead of Dallas, 14-0. Two weeks later, in Super Bowl II, Dowler caught a 62-yard touchdown pass as the Packers took control, 13-0, en route to a 33-14 victory over Oakland.

Dowler also was the Packers’ punter on Lombardi’s first two championship teams in 1961 and ’62, averaging 44.1 and 43.1 yards per punt. In 1959, Dowler led the Packers in receiving as a rookie and was named NFL Rookie of the Year by United Press International, although he didn’t become a starter until the second half of the season.

“As far as I’m concerned, he’s the most underrated receiver in the league,” Lombardi said of Dowler after the 1965 NFL Championship Game.

The Packers selected Dowler in the third round of the 1959 NFL Draft after he had led Colorado in passing three straight years and in receiving as a junior and senior, playing in a multi-set offense.

He played quarterback when Colorado lined up in a wing-T and blocking back in single-wing formations. That also was during the one-platoon era of college football. Thus, Dowler played in the secondary on defense and as a senior led the Buffaloes in interceptions with five. He also punted and averaged 43.3 yards.
Legendary NFL quarterback Sammy Baugh spent five days working with Dowler in spring practice before his senior season and wrote a scouting report on him for the Packers, dated Nov. 18, 1958, where he said, “This boy has all the tools to be a pro quarterback.” While Lombardi invited Dowler to his first quarterback camp in late June 1959, he told him he was going to be a receiver.

As a rookie, Dowler took over as a starter in the seventh game when Lombardi scrapped his three-back formation in favor of a three-receiver set. A week later in his second start, Dowler caught eight passes for 147 yards against the defending NFL champion Baltimore Colts and the job was his for the duration of the Lombardi era.

At first, Dowler was listed as a right halfback, although he lined up exclusively as a split receiver. Next, he was listed as an end, but played almost exclusively on the right side through 1964 opposite left end Max McGee. In a strong right formation, Dowler was considered the flanker; in a strong left formation, he was the split end. In 1965 when the Packers acquired Carroll Dale, they started flip-flopping their outside receivers, with Dowler playing split end on the weak side and Dale playing flanker on the strong side. That same year, following Ron Kramer’s departure, Dowler also started lining up at tight end in certain passing situations. In today’s game, Dowler would be called a wide receiver, but he wasn’t listed as such in the official lineups until his last season in Green Bay.

In 11 years, Dowler never missed a game with the Packers, although he missed considerable practice time in 1961 when he was called up for Army duty during the Berlin Crisis. Dowler reported to Fort Lewis, Wash., in early November and received weekend passes in order to play the remainder of the season.

In all, Dowler played in 150 games for the Packers, finishing with 448 receptions for 6,918 yards, a 15.4 average per catch. He also averaged 42.9 yards as a punter.

Dowler retired from the Packers and joined the Los Angeles Rams as an assistant coach under George Allen on March 4, 1970. After sitting out the 1970 season, Dowler went to Washington with Allen and served as a player-coach there in 1971. In exchange, the Packers received a fifth-round draft choice in a draft-day deal on Jan. 28, 1971.

Dowler spent 15 years as an assistant coach in the NFL with five different teams and then scouted for more than 10 years with Carolina and Atlanta.

Born Oct. 18, 1937, in Rock Springs, Wyo. Given name Boyd Hamilton Dowler.

Custom Brett Favre Jersey Large

The Dallas Cowboys’ playoff hopes are on the respirator after falling to the Philadelphia Eagles on the road 17-9 on Sunday, and quarterback Dak Prescott has been getting excoriated ever since thanks to his uneven performance.

Even Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre added to the chorus of doubters, claiming that Prescott wasn’t right mentally during that game.

“You cannot be second-guessing yourself during a game.” https://t.co/VSfc6fZsK5
— The Spun (@TheSpun) December 23, 2019

“I wonder [second-guessing] is what Dak is going through,” Favre said. “If you are in that frame of mind during the game where you’re second-guessing and a little apprehensive, bad things are going to happen.”

Prescott completed just 25 of his 44 passes for a 56.8%, his second lowest completion percentage of the season, and failed to find the end zone. While he was playing with a shoulder injury, that doesn’t excuse the fact that he laid an egg when the Cowboys needed him to show why he’s the guy to lead the Cowboys for years to come.

Brett Favre says Dallas Cowboys abandoned running game, put too much pressure on Dak Prescott https://t.co/7idEFYVcbJ #DallasCowboys #CowboysNation pic.twitter.com/9o6eDGQRMn
— Ron Bohning (@RonBohning) December 23, 2019

Prescott throwing the ball so much when he was clearly banged up gives him an excuse as it pertains to his sub-standard play, but as the quarterback of the Cowboys after a big loss, Prescott was going to be in the line of fire, even after an awful performance from basically all 53 players on the roster.

Custom Ahman Green Jersey Large

GREEN BAY — For a league-leading fifth time, Packers RB Aaron Jones has been nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award.

Fans can vote for Jones by visiting NFL.com/FedEx or on the NFL Twitter page. Voting is open until 2 p.m. CT Thursday.
Jones rushed for 154 yards on 23 carries in the Packers’ 23-10 victory over the Vikings to clinch the NFC North title on Monday night. He had two TD runs in the second half, from 12 and 56 yards, the latter sealing the game with just under six minutes left.

Jones is now only 16 yards shy of his first 1,000-yard rushing season, and his 16 rushing touchdowns and 19 total touchdowns both lead the league. He’s just one touchdown shy of Ahman Green’s single-season team record of 20 set in 2003.
The other nominees this week are Arizona RB Kenyan Drake, who had 166 yards on 24 carries and two TDs in the Cardinals’ 27-13 victory over the Seahawks, and Giants RB Saquon Barkley, who had 189 yards on 22 attempts and a TD in a 41-35 overtime win over Washington.

Custom A. J. Hawk Jersey Large

For many people, Thanksgiving is their favorite holiday, if not one of their favorite days of the year.

A.J. Hawk, however, is not one of those people.

“Without tying to sound like a huge downer or a grump, I don’t really care about any of it,” the Super Bowl champion said on Taz & The Moose. “I enjoy being with my family and everybody and hanging out and the camaraderie and all that, but I’m not going crazy about certain meals. I like turkey. I put turkey in my eggs every morning, but Thanksgiving turkey, I think, is highly overrated.”

Hawk and his wife hosted a “Friends-giving” Monday night. It was fine.

“I ate a bunch of turkey and a little bit of stuffing,” Hawk said, mildly unimpressed. “I don’t go too crazy, though. It’s just another day . . . (to) hang out with my family.”

While Hawk might not love Thanksgiving food, there’s at least plenty of football to watch in between plates. The Cowboys (6-5) host the Bills (8-3) on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. ET. Dallas has lost five of eight since its 3-0 start, and if Jason Garrett is wise, he will find a way to win this game, especially after being criticized by Jerry Jones following the Cowboys’ loss in Foxboro.

Just how hot is Garrett’s seat right now?

“You would think it’s very hot when the owner comes out and says that,” Hawk said. “Jerry seems to have, up until this point, really been on board with Jason Garrett and saying all the right things to the media. But when your owner – the guy that is making every single decision in that building – when he comes out and he seems to be critical of something that is pretty out of the norm for him as far as supporting his head coach, I feel like yeah, you’ve got to be a little bit worried if you’re Jason Garrett. I can’t imagine him being back next year if they don’t get to the NFC Championship or Super Bowl.”

Custom Rashan Gary Jersey Large

Rashan Gary could make a fast start in the new-look Green Bay Packers defense.
Many wondered whether the Green Bay Packers would still select an edge rusher in the first round after signing Za’Darius and Preston Smith in free agency. But they did just that, further strengthening the pass rush by selecting Rashan Gary in the opening round.

What role with Gary have in Mike Pettine’s defense in his rookie year?

2018 stats
Gary played nine games in his final year at Michigan, finishing with 3.5 sacks, 38 tackles and 6.5 tackles for loss. The biggest concern entering the NFL is his lack of sacks, and that’s something the Packers will be hoping improves at the next level.

Odds of making roster: 100 percent
With all of the offseason additions made this spring, there’s absolutely a chance the Packers defense can be the most improved in the NFL. But for that to happen, they’ll need Gary to produce right away.

What to expect in 2019?
Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine will likely move his pass rushers around, but will that mean Gary starts in Week 1? Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith will likely start at outside linebacker, but could Pettine have Gary line up inside or along the defensive line? The ability for each edge rusher to move around could help Pettine find the best matchups.

What kind of impact will Gary have this season? While it’s certainly understandable to be concerned about his lack of production in college, there’s a reason the Packers were willing to select him with the 12th overall pick in April.

With the talent Green Bay has signed at edge rusher, Gary won’t face too many double teams right away, and that’ll allow him to make an impact on the game and provide pressure.

Gary can absolutely make an instant impact in the league. Not only do the Packers now have four players who all have the potential to hit double-digit sacks (Gary, Za’Darius and Preston Smith, and Kyler Fackrell) but they also have a defensive coordinator who was able to scheme pressure last season even when there was little production from the edge rushers (outside of Fackrell).

Many believed selecting Gary so early was a risk, but he could have a great rookie season in this defense.
