ASHBURN, Va. Cheap Air Max 2018 Shoes . -- Jay Gruden could be playing the Cincinnati Bengals on the moon and it wouldnt matter to him.The Washington Redskins coach will face his former team for the first time Sunday at Wembley Stadium in London. The setting doesnt matter; its a special game for Gruden, who was the Bengals offensive coordinator from 2011-2013. Its in Grudens makeup to treat it as an important game for the 4-3 Redskins, but he cant contain his excitement and nostalgia about going up against old boss Marvin Lewis.Im excited, man, Gruden said. I mean, I cant wait. Really, it sounds funny -- its such a big game for us. I really dont care where we play them. I just cant wait to play the game.Gruden will be able to look across the field at not only Lewis but his old quarterback, Andy Dalton, and receiver A.J. Green. Two coordinator changes since Gruden have changed plenty around the Bengals to the point Dalton isnt worried about Gruden knowing too much, but there are lessons from a few years ago that are helping now in Washington.A big one has to do with Dalton, whom Gruden groomed from a rookie starter into one of the more consistent passers in the NFL.Jay taught me a lot and he gave me a lot of freedom at the line of scrimmage, Dalton said Wednesday. He allowed me to change plays and get into plays that were better-suited for the defenses that we were getting, and so it taught me a lot just through the preparation of it. I feel like hes got a big part in the reason Ive been playing the way I have here recently, and hes got me to be the player I am today.Kirk Cousins is Grudens challenge now, even after Washingtons starting quarterback threw for 29 touchdowns and a franchise-record 4,166 yards last season. Even though they were only drafted a year apart Dalton (second round, 2011) and Cousins (fourth round, 2012), Gruden said theyre developmental curves are different because of the opportunities they got or didnt get early in their pro careers.Dalton was the man from the get-go in Cincinnati, while Cousins had to wait behind Robert Griffin III, who was the second overall pick in 2012. Because Dalton is in his sixth season as an NFL starter, Gruden said hes further along than Cousins at this stage.Cousins looked at Dalton as a blueprint when Gruden joined the Redskins in 2014 and still considers him a great example to follow.There was a desire to glean from Coach Gruden whatever he had taught Andy knowing that hes been able to make a quarterback very successful in this league, Cousins said. Im always studying quarterbacks around the league and hes included in that. Hes done a great job for them as a quarterback, as a leader, and I really admire his game. I certainly want to continue to take steps to play at his level and to do it consistently year-in and year-out.As a Dalton in-training, Cousins has the right guy teaching him in Gruden, a quarterback in his playing days who practices patience with that position. And Lewis thinks Gruden has a Dalton in-the-making in Cousins, who has similar size and can sling it when asked.I see a lot of similarities between Kirk and Andy, Lewis said. I think they both do an incredible job at the line of scrimmage surveying the defense and getting in and out of the right plays. You see the Redskins doing a lot of play changes at the line of scrimmage, which is what Andy has been so good at for us here.Game notes RB Matt Jones missed practice with a knee injury. Jones declined comment, and his status for the Bengals game is unclear. Gruden said if Jones cant play, undrafted rookie Robert Kelley would start and Chris Thompson would remain the third-down back ... TE Jordan Reed and CB Josh Norman partially participated in practice coming off concussions, though Reed said hes symptom free after missing the past two games. ... LT Trent Williams says he expects to play after leaving Washingtons 20-17 loss at the Detroit Lions with a knee injury. ...

The notion of an ageing David Warner is a bit like that of President Trump, a jarring thought that requires some getting used to even for the man himself. Changing times will be marked by the fact that when they go out to open the batting, Warner will be Australias oldest player and Matt Renshaw the youngest.That happens, you get older. Like all of us. Its a good thing as well, Warner said. Good signs that Ive matured over the years and Ive been able to keep my spot and Im doing the things right. Now its about me trying to filter down my experience to the youngsters in the team and making sure theyre on the right path that Steven [Smith] wants us to be on.As a team weve got to go out there and do our best for one, and remember the pride in the Baggy Green thats on your head. Its not just for us but the nation.Warner has leaned on the discarded Joe Burns for some early knowledge about the man who has replaced him as Australias latest opening batsman. That Warner is entering this Test with his third opening partner in as many matches says it all about how unstable the Australian Test line-up has become, after he spent the majority of his first four home summers partnered by just two men in Ed Cowan and Chris Rogers.In common with that pair, Renshaw is left-handed, determined and known to put a high price on his wicket. If these are qualities Warner has not always demonstrated himself - certainly not on the first morning of the Hobart Test when his swish in the first over set a sickly tone for Australia - then he is grateful to see them at the other end.I dont know a lot about him, Warner said of the 20-year-old Renshaw. Ive heard a few whispers through Joe Burns, who called me and spoke about him. I think hes a great competitor. They said he likes batting in the contest and batting time, which is fantastic. Its what we like as an Australian team member is to have something about you and a character about you and Im sure were going to get that from him.Its a fantastic opportunity for these youngsters to press their claims on the world stage. Whoever is fortunate enough to go out there and make their debut will do what they know best and what got themselves here. The guys that have been selected have got runss behind them, theyre in great form. Orange Nike Air Max 2018. In the time Warner and Renshaw have together before the toss of the coin on Thursday, the older man will be hoping to establish some sort of batting relationship in terms of helping out with strike rotation and approaches to various members of the South African attack. Warner is known to be a more fidgety batting partner than some of his more brazen and carefree innings have suggested, so there is likely to be plenty of information exchanged.For one, its about batting in partnerships as we speak about, Warner said. Trying to get to know each individual and how they get off strike and their go to if theyre getting worked over by a bowler. We usually know what each others about.Ill sit down and have a word with him and see what areas of his game he … when hes on the back foot a little bit how he can rotate the strike. A lot of guys like to drop one in front or drop it to the side. For me its about trying to work out what his game plan is as well.Apart from a new opening partner, Warner will also receive the return of an old partner in on-field crime. Matthew Wades famously punchy on-field demeanour is something Warner has fed off in the past, even if his current persona as the reverend is not consistent with those days. Warner left the recent Sheffield Shield match between New South Wales and Victoria with his ears ringing from Wades chirping, and said South Africa could expect the same.Mattys one of those players that likes to get in the contest, Warner said. Him being vocal out there is a form of him getting into the contest and he likes that battle. Thats the way he gets himself going and gets the team going. Playing against Victoria this week they were nice and chirpy and he was leading that banter even as captain.Thats what you need, you need someone from behind those stumps to keep making sure everyones getting between their overs and theres a bit of noise out there. Not saying Peter Nevill didnt do that at all, its more when a new guy comes in whos been hungry for the last couple of years we know what to expect from Matty. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
