Rouse football gets rematch with Brennan | www.statesman.com
Brennan may have lost several starters on defense, but theyve reloaded on offense and have a dangerous dual-threat quarterback in DaShawn Key. Key passed for 1,809 yards and ran for 2,002 in 2013, while having a hand in an eye-popping 57 total touchdowns. Hes good, if not better than last year based on their scrimmage tape, Mann said. Hes got some new guys to work with, but they actually look better up front, which is scary to think about. Rouse will counter with its own dual threat in quarterback Billy Ray McCrary. McCrary ran for 1,376 yards and 30 touchdowns, while also dishing out nine touchdown passes, even though he missed time under center with a thumb injury. A three-year starter at multiple positions, McCrary has strong grasp of the Raiders offense and has an veteran offensive line in front off him which will be guided by senior Will Noble, another three year starter.
Josh Gordon's ban is latest break for Baltimore Ravens secondary - ESPN
Baltimore's banged-up http://www.rayj-sextape.com/ secondary won't have to cover Cincinnati Bengals receiver Marvin Jones in the season opener because he's expected to miss the season's first four weeks with a broken foot. The big blow is the Browns losing Gordon, the NFL's leading receiver last year. The Ravens have held Gordon in check, limiting him to six catches for 98 yards and no touchdowns in three games. Still, the Browns rely heavily on Gordon. Last year, Browns quarterbacks threw nine touchdowns and two interceptions when targeting Gordon, and they threw 17 touchdowns and 18 interceptions when targeting others.
That may prove to be very difficult since quarterback Brian Hoyerand perhaps eventually rookie Johnny Manziel will have a mediocre cast of receivers to throw to, per SportsCenter: Without All-Pro Josh Gordon, the Browns' wide receivers have a lot to prove this season. pic.twitter.com/JHjVQjWlOi SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) August 27, 2014 Leave it to Jim Rome of CBS Sports to provide a reality check, however, as he believes the Browns were destined to struggle with or without Gordon: Browns fans, you will not have Josh Gordon for that playoff push that was never going to happen anyway.
