EAST LANSING – High school reunion and football go hand in hand, but due to an unexpected package, the East Lansing High School celebration will be a little different this weekend.

East Lansing’s return match was called off on Wednesday after opponent Lansing Everett High School said he would not be able to field a team due to injuries, suspensions and eligibility issues .

East Lansing searched statewide for a replacement opponent, but couldn’t find a replacement in such a short time, district officials said.

So, on Friday night, instead of the football game, East Lansing High School will host a community gathering to celebrate the school.

“We look forward to continuing our Homecoming celebrations as planned,” athletic director Nikki Norris said in an email.

Like many young footballers, Braden Bell has always dreamed of being the quarterback.

But growing up, he was relegated to the offensive line. Bell moved a little closer to a specialty position, moving to seventh-year linebacker at Henrietta.

Then, as he entered eighth grade, Bell randomly learned that he would move into the backfield rather than take his place in the front row. His new roster was behind the center, giving him the opportunity to make that childhood dream come true.

“It was something that I always wanted to play,” said Bell. “I always wanted to be the quarterback. I wasn’t sure I would ever have the opportunity until eighth grade.

But Bell’s path to becoming the starting quarterback for Henrietta University and recently leading the Bearcats to a three-game winning streak has still seen some twists and turns.

5 numbers that tell the story of the Packers-Lions game https://www.crosskeystennis.com/5-numbers-that-tell-the-story-of-the-packers-lions-game/ Tue, 21 Sep 2021 20:37:30 +0000 https://www.crosskeystennis.com/5-numbers-that-tell-the-story-of-the-packers-lions-game/ The Green Bay Packers got their season back on track with a 35-17 victory over the Detroit Lions in their home opener.

The Green Bay Packers got their season back on track with a 35-17 victory over the Detroit Lions in their home opener. The Lions held on for the first two and a half quarters before the Packers could capitalize on their mistakes and walk away.

We saw the Aaron Rodgers last season in that win. He was able to expertly dissect Detroit’s defense with every pullback, hitting his targets for big chunks of yards. Aaron Jones and Davante Adams were also important on Monday night and became the keys to the offense.

Here are five numbers that explain Green Bay’s first win of the season.

16/17

Rodgers returned to MVP form after a tough 1 week in Jacksonville. He looked a lot more comfortable in this game as he could pick up the pace early and keep the momentum going throughout.

Rodgers was nothing short of brilliant in the second and third downs, going 16 of 17 in passing attempts for 208 yards and four touchdowns. The incompleteness only arrived at the end of the fourth quarter, when the match was already out of control.

When you have an incredibly efficient quarterback who is comfortable passing on second and third downs, you have a better chance of exhausting defense and demoralizing your opponent as the game progresses. Rodgers looked like a different player than last week. He made difficult throws a number of times and his offensive line kept him in the pocket as the game developed.

44.2

Looking at the box score, one would think that a Packers victory was never in doubt. But Green Bay was down 17-14 at halftime, and Goff was 13 for 16 for 137 yards and two scores with a 141.9 passer rating.

After this less than optimal first half, the Packers’ defense became much more stingy and Goff was 13 for 26 in the second half with an interception. Goff saw his passer rating drop from 141.9 at halftime to 97.7 to complete the game.

While Green Bay’s lead forced the Lions to become more one-dimensional, the Packers secondary did a great job defending against the Lions spreaders. Rookie Eric Stokes stood out with his pass break in the Detroit end zone in the dying minutes of the fourth quarter.

19.2%

The Packers put Za’Darius Smith on IR this week, so the focus will be on Rashan Gary to generate pressure in his high role. Although the former first-round player hasn’t started many games, he has shown great promise as a passer in his limited role.

Gary showed up with a bang on Monday night. He led the team under pressure and won 19.2% of his rushed passing repetitions. Although he didn’t register a sack, winning on those quick reps is a good sign both for Gary and for the team as a whole. With Smith out for a while, Gary must be the one to step in and face the opposing quarterbacks.

Next week he’ll get a great test against the San Francisco 49ers to see how good he is against one of the NFL’s top tackles at Trent Williams, who will protect Jimmy Garoppolo’s blind side.

6

I strongly criticized the offensive line last week for their passing and running play. The absence of Corey Linsley and David Bakhtiari was felt, and if the offensive line kept the game going like this they would be in for a tough season.

However, this week the O-line upped its pass protection, allowing just six pushes from the 15 it gave up last week. The offensive line barely gave Rodgers enough time to roam the field before throwing in Jacksonville, but he had plenty of time in his pocket against the Lions to do the right reading before triggering a pass.

Green Bay’s offensive line appeared to be in great shape, and we can only expect it to improve with the addition of Bakhtiari protecting Rodgers’ blind side as soon as he comes off the PUP roster.

5

Watching the game I kept thinking about how Eric Stokes should start Kevin King over. Stokes was very impressive when Goff decided to target him, allowing only one take on his four targets for a total of five yards.

Heading into the offseason, we all knew this team needed a cornerback boost, given the way King played during the NFC Championship. While rookies generally struggle early in their careers, Stokes seemed at ease.

Usually, when you have a cornerback as dominant as Jaire Alexander, teams usually try to get easy picks on the cornerback in front of them. Stokes managed to hold on Monday night. Stokes is currently the third corner corner for this team, but if he continues to play like this he could soon be in contention for a starting role.

No, you’re not reading the same article that was written last week highlighting RB Cordarrelle Patterson as Player of the Week against the Eagles. For the second straight opener of the season, Patterson was the best player on the field – this time against defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

At the time, it was a bit of a surprise to some when the Falcons gave Cordarrelle Patterson a one-year, $ 3 million contract at a point in the offseason when the team needed to erase some pounds just. to afford his next draft class. .

The Tennessee alum is one of the best kicking returnees in NFL history, having been voted the first-team All-Pro selection four times in his career, including each from the previous two seasons in Chicago. That in itself was certainly worth the $ 3 million, in an effort to revitalize Atlanta’s rematch that has been non-existent for most of a decade.

Patterson has cultivated a great career watching only his special teams contributions, but he didn’t make much noise outside of that despite being selected as the first round in 2013 – he totaled 627 yards of scrimmage on his rookie season, which is still a career high.

Patterson underwent a small makeover in the second half of his career, moving more into a running back role after being drafted as a wide receiver. It started in New England when he received 42 litters in 2018, which almost matched the 44 litters he had combined in the first five years of his career.

He was used sparingly in Chicago during the 2019 season (28 touches in total) before being propelled into the role of RB substitute behind David Montgomery last season, after Tarik Cohen suffered an ACL injury early on. of the season. Patterson reached a career high of 64 races in the role, but was little more than an element of depth for a team that gave Montgomery as many touches as he could handle after Cohen’s injury.

As we’ve seen in the first two weeks of the season, Arthur Smith had bigger plans for Patterson than just using him as a turner and depth piece. This was hinted at when the team entered the season with three running backs on the roster (Patterson being one of them), and after making the third RB – Wayne Gallman – a healthy scratch in each. of the first two games.

In Week 2, Cordarrelle Patterson scored two touchdowns – one on the ground and one on reception – and he had a very good 69 yards scrimmage. He also came within inches of scoring a third touchdown, but his toe barely grazed the off-bounds line on what would have been a long score grab and run.

Patterson registered only four touches less than RB Mike Davis (12-16) and he was able to do more with them, especially by proving his efficiency in the red zone where he appeared. I would be very worried if I owned Davis in fantasy football right now.

Going back to his days at the University of Tennessee, it’s always been clear that Cordarrelle Patterson is a dynamic playmaker whenever the ball is in his hands. The problem is, the NFL coaches didn’t do the best job of getting the ball back into their hands outside of the second leg, and for a while they gave up on that drill altogether.

Arthur Smith knows what he’s got, however, and he’s already taken steps to unlock Patterson’s prowess as a dynamo in the game. After two games, CP is poised to beat its career highs at the both in receptions and in litters.

This $ 3 million contract seemed fair for Cordarrelle Patterson the comeback. It could turn into a good deal for Cordarrelle Patterson, the turner and playmaker.

Even when the Chiefs led by 11 points and the Ravens gave up big plays and 35 points, Oweh said the defense was never down.

“Don’t flinch,” Oweh said. “It’s our defense. We had given up on playing the whole game but we had the mentality of the next game. Keep pushing and we did it.”

So many times in their history, the Ravens have won games with their defense. But it’s been a strange September for the Ravens with plenty of end-of-season injuries followed by a tough overtime loss to Las Vegas in Week 1. A loss would have left the Ravens 0-2 for the first time. since 2015, but thanks in large part to Oweh, the Ravens are 1-1 and are hoping Sunday’s win will be the start of their momentum.

The Ravens saw Oweh’s potential as a passer when they drafted him, but they also saw more. His versatility and athleticism make him a perfect fit in defensive coordinator Wink Martindale’s system, a player who can be used in a number of ways. There have been times against the Chiefs where Oweh bombed, or put the advantage against the run, or even split up to defend All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce in cover.

Oweh won’t back down from any task, confident that he can take responsibility. This bodes well for Oweh’s future, but he’s already bringing a playing ability to defense.

“I’m just trying to work hard every day in training, trying to work on what I’m going to see in the game and get the ball out, put it all in the hands of God,” Oweh said. “Obviously I want to have an impact on the game, in every game I play. I’m just hooping.”

Wade Miley knew where the ball was heading when Corey Seager hooked up on a first pitch slider for a two-run homer in the third inning on Sunday.

He just hopes the Cincinnati Reds’ playoff chances haven’t gone away.

Miley had another rough start, allowing six runs and nine hits in three innings, with future Hall of Fame member Clayton Kershaw throwing the other end. The Reds lost 8-5 in their series final to the Los Angeles Dodgers in front of 26,621 fans at Great American Ball Park.

The Reds have lost eight straight series, their longest losing streak since August 2015. They are four back in the losing streak for the St. Louis Cardinals with 12 games remaining in their season. The Cardinals swept the San Diego Padres and won eight straight games to take a three-game lead in the wild card race.

“We have to win games, build playoffs,” Miley said. “I know we haven’t won a series in a while. But we just have to keep playing. We can’t press. Anything can happen. 12 games left, Cardinals have (14) games to go. can go on a losing streak like we did. Hopefully we can turn things around and see what happens. “

Top Democrats are expected to challenge Republicans to block an interim financing measure, which would trigger the double-barreled US budget crisis defaulting on its mammoth debt and a federal government shutdown, say two sources close to it of the proposal.

The plan envisioned by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is to suspend the debt ceiling after the 2022 midterm election. in an interim bill that would keep the government funded until early December, the sources said.

Democrats then want to challenge Republicans to block the interim financing measure with an obstruction and prevent it from receiving the 60 votes needed to pass the Senate – which could cause a government shutdown on October 1 and leave the States – United unable to pay their bills.

The United States has almost always avoided defaults and the sources said they expected a resolution on this occasion as well, although negotiations, like in previous years, continued until the eleventh hour. .

But economists say a failure to raise or suspend the debt limit when tied to the interim financing measure would be particularly catastrophic, as the United States would be unable to repay its debts amid a government. federal potentially non-functional.

Resolving the impasse – which typically turns into political football under a Democratic president as Republicans criticize their spending – now requires a party to blink.

The strategy to tie the potentially catastrophic prospect of the United States defaulting on its $ 28 billion debt to a government shutdown could put Republicans in a difficult position after their repeated refusal to raise the debt limit in any way. bipartite.

It also underscores the extent of congressional dysfunction, as Republicans refuse to support measures ranging from voting rights legislation to police reform to a 9/11-style commission to investigate the attack. murder of January 6 against the Capitol.

The high-stakes debt ceiling clash is gaining momentum after Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen recently said the United States could default in mid-October and cause “irreparable damage” to the debt. economy if Congress does not take action.

In a letter to Pelosi, Yellen said the extraordinary measures the Treasury Department used to temporarily fund the government after the country’s debt hit its legal limit on August 1 would be exhausted by next month.

“Once all available measures and available liquidity are completely exhausted, the United States of America would not be able to meet its obligations for the first time in our history,” Yellen wrote.

This collapse could affect the credit rating of the United States, raising the specter of an increase in Treasury interest rates, which could cost the government billions and lead to increased borrowing costs for businesses. American rates, since their rates are compared to Treasury rates.

Democrats have insisted for months that Republicans join them in taking action on the debt ceiling, saying it is mainly because of Republicans that the national debt has increased by about $ 8 billion over the course of the year. of the Trump administration.

Pelosi added at a recent press conference that the need to suspend the debt ceiling stemmed in part from Republican tax cuts for the rich. “We’re paying the credit card, the Trump credit card,” Pelosi said.

But Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell has remained adamant that Republicans will not support Democrats in raising the debt ceiling as part of a stand-alone bill, and that it should be included instead. in a vast infrastructure package that can be adopted by a party. online voting.

“Let’s be clear,” McConnell said in a tweet Wednesday. “With a Democratic President, a Democratic House, and a Democratic Senate, Democrats have all the tools they need to raise the debt ceiling. It is their sole responsibility. “

Pelosi and Schumer also noted that Democrats joined Republicans in handling the debt limit when Trump was president and believe Republicans should now reciprocate – rather than leaving vulnerable Democrats open to ad attacks if the cap is. noted in a party line vote. .

Emphasizing the point, Pelosi said Democrats would not include a provision to raise the debt ceiling in the $ 3.5 billion budget resolution for Biden’s infrastructure program they had been seeking. ‘intention to adopt with the reconciliation process, in order to avoid obstruction.

Instead, the Main Democrats are moving forward with a plan to add such language to the interim funding measure that would keep the government funded until Dec. 3 or Dec. 10, the sources said, and hope persuade 10 Senate Republicans to support the bill.

The inclusion of the debt limit in the interim measure is not final, the sources warned, and discussions will continue when the House returns from a summer recess. It could always be added to a disaster relief bill, for example, or be addressed in a stand-alone bill.

Part of the concern of Main Democrats is that the path to 60 votes in the Senate was significantly reduced last month after the Senate Republican Conference majority signed a letter promising to block any bills that attempt to raise the debt ceiling.

Only four Senate Republicans – Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and John Kennedy – refused to sign the letter, a number well below the threshold required to defeat an expected filibuster.
