Last year, under Kyle Shanahan, the Falcons led the league with 33.8 points per game and were top five in the NFL in passing yards per game (295.3). They were also top five in limiting turnovers per game (0.7). This season, under Steve Sarkisian, the Falcons’ offensive numbers are down across the board, earning 21.3 points per game, 252.0 passing yards per game and 1.2 giveaways per game (1.2).
“It’s frustrating. I’d be lying to you if I didn’t say that, because you know you can play better and you feel like you let your guys down,” Siemian said. “You let your teammates down when you don’t play well. And, as a quarterback, you touch it every time so it doesn’t matter what everyone’s doing around you.”
The good news for Siemian? The season isn’t even half over, with plenty of time to rewrite the narrative. The bad? Denver faces a balanced and proven Chiefs team on Monday night before embarking on a vicious slate of games against the Eagles, Patriots, Bengals and Raiders.
The latest 31-page memorandum stems from Johnson’s attempt to have his 10-game PED suspension from last season overturned retroactively, which would entitle him to collect lost salary as well as have guarantees reinstated in the five-year, $56 million contract he signed in 2016.
The players union and NFL responded separately to have Johnson’s claim dismissed without prejudice. The latest filings from all three parties came Wednesday in the U.S. District Court of Southern New York.
Johnson’s suspension was his second in four NFL seasons with the Eagles. Johnson, though, claimed this positive test stemmed from ingesting an NFLPA-approved Vancouver Canucks Cheap Jerseys supplement Texas Rangers Cheap Jerseys that contained a prohibited substance under the league’s drug-testing policy.
O: What would have to change?
