Maillot Tomas Plekanec des Canadiens de Montreal Can Sexting Increase Relationship Satisfaction?

News coverage of sexting tends to focus on the negative. When teens and politicians get caught exchanging nude pictures and lascivious messages on their phones, they’re publicly shamed. And their relationships can suffer profoundly,
Maillot Tomas Plekanec des Canadiens de Montreal as when Anthony Weiner’s wife left him after The New York Post published the disgraced politician’s Men’s Custom Made Reebok Montreal Canadiens Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey extramarital sexts.

But is there a positive side to sexting? Could it contribute to healthier and more satisfying relationships for adults? The research to date says yes—but only in certain conditions. It also says that sexting has become extremely common.

“Sending someone a sext message is not much different than writing an 1800’s erotic love note,” says Joe Currin, research coordinator for the Sexual Health Research Labat Oklahoma State University. “Behaviors are adapting to the use of newer technologies. We just now have the ability to express our sexuality
Tomas Plekanec Youth Jersey in real time.”

So what factors make the difference between good sexting and bad sexting? Here’s a list.

1. Enthusiastic consent

This should go without saying, but common sense plus research says that sexting needs to be mutual, enthusiastic, and consensual. Sexting gets a bad name partially because too many people receive unsolicited and unwanted nude pictures. Properly speaking, this is sexual harassment, not sexting, and it can be scary.

People can also be compelled to sext against their will, which may be linked to other kinds of abuse. A study published last month in the Journal of Interpersonal Violencefound that 21 percent of the 885 undergraduates surveyed—most of them women—had been coerced at some point into providing sexual messages.
Custom Canadiens Jersey The study also linked coerced sexting to “mental health symptoms, sexual problems, and attachment dysfunction,” which leads the researchers to describe it as a form of intimate partner abuse. In fact, this and several studies published last year suggest that coerced sexting may be a danger sign that the relationship could involve physical coercion or even violence.
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Away White Alternate Captain Patch NHL Jersey.

This leads to the next condition for successful sexting.

2. Emotional safety, respect, and communication

Sexting is not the same as sex, in the sense that bodies are not directly interacting. It is, rather, minds interacting through phones. Just as sex flourishes in conditions of physical safety and respect, so sexting requires a certain degree of emotional safety if it is to work for both parties. When that condition is absent, sexting hurts the relationship.

This may sound simple, but the research reveals some tricky nuances. A studypublished earlier this year found that people who feared looking bad in the eyes of their partners were more likely to engage in sexting, suggesting that while the sexts weren’t necessarily coerced, they were being exchanged only to please a partner, not themselves. It suggests, further, that they didn’t feel confident enough in the relationship to simply say “no” to unwanted sexual activity.

Currin’s research with colleagues actually finds that heterosexual women feel a lot of anxiety when they don’t want to reply to a sext—but lesbians and men do not. Why? It may have a lot to do with the degree to which a woman wants to conform to a traditionally feminine ideal—what Currin calls a “controlling image”—which pits pressure to comply against seeing sexts as simply lewd.

“For non-heterosexual individuals, they’re already going against what society says they should be doing—so doing this other behavior doesn’t bother me if it
Tomas Plekanec Jersey doesn’t bother the other person,” says Currin.

This line of research suggests sexting needs to occur within the wider context of honest, back-and-forth conversation. How does your partner really feel about sexting? What kinds of sexts are acceptable and what are not? In what circumstances, if any, could pictures or text be shared? Is there a type of communication that feels threatening or just uncomfortable? While it may seem not-fun to have such conversations, their absence can destroy a relationship.

This is especially the case when a partner has past bad experiences—or an insecure attachment style.

3. Pay attention to attachment

The most interesting dimension of sexting research involves attachment theory, which refers to how childhood relationships with our parents can shape our adult ones. People who grow up to have a secure attachment style find intimacy easy; those with anxious or even avoidant styles might struggle with closeness and cooperation.

Sexting can help a couple become more attuned to each other, says Rob Weisskirch, a researcher at California State University, Monterey Bay. But many studies find that it can also hint at anxiety. According to this research, insecurely attached people aremore likely to engage in sexting—and this, for them, is actually associated with greater relationship satisfaction. Why, and what this means, is still a matter of debate among researchers and therapists.

It doesn’t necessarily mean that sexting is unhealthy, says Indiana University psychologist Michelle Drouin. “Instead, it is more likely that those who want to keep a bit more distance in their relationship (and women who want to keep partners closer) use sexting to fill sexual needs. For these individuals, sexting may actually help them by increasing their sexual or relationship satisfaction.”
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Home Red A Patch Hockey Jersey.

The bottom line is that in this dimension of a relationship, as in others, it pays to know your attachment style—and that of your partner. “Recognize the attachment pattern and look for ways of providing the feedback needed,” suggests Weisskirch. (Incidentally, one Hungarian study published last year found that attachment style can even extend to our relationship with our phones.)

4. (Creative) honesty

Like other items on this list, honesty falls into the category of obvious-but-tricky. Several studies suggest that deception-while-sexting is commonplace—and this is especially true for women who try to avoid emotional connection and intimacy, often as a result of childhood experiences.

A 2014 study by Michelle Drouin and colleagues found that almost half of the people in their sample of 155 heterosexual college students had sent deceptive sexts. These were often benign or even playful lies about what they were wearing or their state of arousal that were intended to entertain or titillate their partners. Women lied far more often than men, but mainly if they were anxiously attached—implying that they worried their significant other might go away if he didn’t get what he wanted.

“Lying during sexting, just like pretending orgasm in a face-to-face context, is more likely to occur among those with insecure attachments to relationship partners,” write the authors.

So, should you never lie when sexting? Instead of making up sexy details or responses, is it better just to say, “I’m bored” or “I’m grocery shopping” or “I’m wearing that pair of underwear that sags around my butt”? To Drouin, it really depends.

“In a follow-up paper I’ve done, but not yet published, I found that many people consider sexting just fantasy,” says Drouin. “They use sexting to spice things up, and few are honest about what they are doing, wearing, or intending to do with a partner. Additionally, most people know and expect that others aren’t being honest during sexting.”

So is it better build up a fantasy or keep it real? “Depends on your personal boundaries, both sexually and in terms of how authentic you want your interaction to be,” says Drouin.

Which gets us back to consent, safety, communication, and emotional security. “Sure, sexting might be used to spice up a sexual relationship, but if one partner or another doesn’t feel like the communication is appropriate or authentic, it could also cause issues in the relationship,” says Drouin. At its best, sexting is playful and imaginative. If everyone is knowingly and voluntarily participating in the fantasy, it’s fun. If they’re not, it can hurt the relationship.

“Sext with caution would be my suggestion,” she adds. “Better yet—have sex instead. Real intimacy is much more fulfilling than the computer-mediated type.”

Maillot Tomas Plekanec des Canadiens de Montreal Lightning doing well with Moose Jaw connection

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. — Brayden Point had a good relationship with Brett Howden when they were teammates with Moose Jaw of the Western Hockey League. But that’s not why he gave the Tampa Bay Lightning a positive scouting
Maillot Tomas Plekanec des Canadiens de Montreal report on Howden when they asked for his opinion before the 2016 NHL Draft.Men’s Custom Made Reebok Montreal Canadiens Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey.

“I was honest with them,” Point said. “It was good things obviously because of the kind of guy he is and the type of player he is. With [Howden], he puts all his effort in every time he’s on the ice and off the ice. I think they made a good pick.”

The Lightning, at least influenced to some degree by Point’s comments, selected Howden with the 27th pick of the draft, Point and Howden are now two of the
Tomas Plekanec Youth Jersey Lightning’s top prospects.Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Away White Alternate Captain Patch NHL Jersey.

“We were good buddies in Moose Jaw,” Howden said of Point. “The fact that we get to be there together is pretty special for both of us. It’s pretty nice of him to say some good things about me to help them kind of lean toward me.

“It was very exciting [to get drafted by Tampa Bay]. It was my best meeting for sure at the [2016 NHL Scouting] Combine. After doing a lot of research on them after the combine, it was the team I really wanted to go to. My dad tried to kind
Custom Canadiens Jersey of keep me calm and say, hey, if it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen because there’s a lot of teams that could pick you. The fact that I came here, I’m very lucky and fortunate. I’m just ecstatic to be here.”

Point, a third-round pick (No. 79) in the 2014 draft, will be looking for an NHL roster spot this season, but it won’t be easy given Tampa Bay’s depth and youth at forward.Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Home Red A Patch Hockey Jersey.

He was a prolific scorer in junior hockey, including 38 goals and 88 points in 48 games last season with Moose Jaw, and in parts of five WHL seasons he had 324 points in 252 games. Point also has American Hockey League experience; he had two goals and two assists in nine games with Syracuse, the Lightning’s AHL affiliate, in 2014-15.

Point doesn’t want to speculate on when he thinks he’ll become an NHL regular.

“That’s always a hard question,” he said. “I guess you never know until you played. I’m not worried about that. I’m just trying to work hard and feel good about my ice time every time I step on.

“They’ve got an awesome team and it’s a really deep team. They’ve had two good years in a row, really good years, and it’s been fun to watch. And hopefully one day …”

Point’s offensive instincts were evident at a recent prospect tournament in Coral Springs, Fla.

New Syracuse coach Benoit Groulx coached the Lightning there. He previously worked with Point when he was coach of Canada at the 2015 IIHF World Junior
Tomas Plekanec Jersey Championship. Point was captain of that team and had five points in five games.

“He’s not only a skilled player, I think he’s a fierce competitor,” Groulx said. “When he’s in a battle for the puck, when he’s in a race for the puck, when he’s driving the net to beat his opponent to get open, he’s someone that wants to make the difference. He’s someone that wants to make the play, who wants to score the goal, who wants to make that pass. That’s the compete [level] he’s got. And I think that’s what makes the difference in his game. When you bring that skill level and that compete, I think you have a player like him.”

Howden, 18, doesn’t have the same offensive upside as Point; he had 24 goals and 64 points in 68 games last season. But he does have a solid two-way game to go along with good size (6-foot-2, 193 pounds).

“We always felt Brett was first and foremost very skilled,” Lightning director of amateur scouting Al Murray said. “He’s got good size, good skills and he’s very smart. The more you watch him, you realize he’s almost maintenance-free when it comes to the defensive part of the game and how everything comes together between offense and defense. His attention to detail is very strong.”

Howden likely will spent at least one more season developing in Moose Jaw, but he isn’t conceding anything.

“First and foremost, I want to gain a lot of experience,” he said. “Secondly, I think it would be stupid to say that everybody is not here to make the team. Everybody here wants to make the team. That’s why we’re coming in. We’re not coming here just to skate around. Everybody is trying really hard to try to earn a spot. If that
Youth Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Stitched Away White Ice Hockey Jersey doesn’t happen, just make a good impression. That’s my main goal.

“If I just stick to my game and just show them what I can do, then I think I’ll be fine in the long run. I’m not going to try and be somebody I’m not out here. I’m just going to stick to my game and show them what I have.”

Carey Price Jersey Marital discord no longer just a family affair in China

With divorce on the rise, marriage counselors say they are helping more couples find their way through troubled waters, as Zhou Wenting reports from Shanghai.
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 33 Patrick Roy Authentic Away White Ice Hockey Jersey.

In recent months, marriage guidance counselor Shi Xiuxiong has found his workload increasing to such an extent that he now foregoes the traditional lunch,
Carey Price Jersey opting instead for a quick sandwich in the face of a deluge of clients seeking professional help.

The founder of the Good Catch Love Counseling Work-shop in Shanghai, which specializes in providing assistance with relationship issues, is not alone. Many marriage counsel-ors have reported a noticeable rise in the number of couples approaching them for advice.

Figures from the Ministry of Civil Affairs show that last year, 3.84 million couples ended their relationships, a rise from 2.87 million in 2011.

The trend is most obvious in China’s largest cities. Last year, the number of
Max Pacioretty Jersey couples in Beijing untying the knot rose to nearly 56,000, from about 32,000 in 2010.In Shanghai, the figure peaked at 60,400 in 2013.

“Marriage counseling is relatively new in China. People only come to us when their marriages are on the verge of splitting up,” said Shi, who founded the workshop in 2012. Counseling experts said extramarital affairs, personal differences and fractious relations with parents-in-law are the difficulties most frequently encountered by couples. Despite that, they said, the purpose of
Youth Reebok Montreal Canadiens 33 Patrick Roy Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey marriage counseling is not to salvage the relationship at all costs.

“As counselors, we stay neutral and open, and will never advise a couple to stay together or break up. That is a decision for them alone. Our role is to help them to see themselves and their most pressing needs more clearly, and to help them to figure out whether what they’re doing is consistent with their ultimate goal,”
Patrick Roy Jersey said Lin Zi, vice-chairman of the Shanghai Psychological Counseling Association and founder of a psychological consultancy that bears her name.

The neutral approach to marital and relationship advice is the one Shi, from the Good Catch Love Counseling Workshop in Shanghai, has also adopted: “We search for the best way for both members of a couple, and won’t automatically assume that marriage is better than a divorce.”

Generally, Shi’s clients are aged 30 to 35, and have been married for less than five years. They are well-educated and highly-paid, and the ratio of women to men is 7-to-3. “The person who comes to us is usually the one who has identified that there is a problem and wants to save the relationship,” he said.

For clients of counselors such as Shi, the guidance process usually involves three to eight sessions, each lasting one or two hours and costing about 800 yuan ($120) per hour.

“It’s better if a couple attends together because it allows us to see clearly how they communicate with each other, figure out the problems and then fix them,” Shi said.

He said he is always encouraged to see a couple having disputes and disagreements during counseling sessions because it shows that they still care about the relationship: “The biggest problems occur when one or both partners remain silent. That silence indicates that they hope I will advise them to give up.”
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 31 Carey Price Authentic Home Red NHL Hockey Jersey Cheap.

Extramarital affairs

The majority of counselors believe that extramarital affairs are the most common problem among couples.

Shu Xin, director of the Weiqing Group, an agency based in Shanghai that
Custom Canadiens Jersey  provides counseling services in more than 40 cities nationwide, said that roughly 80 percent of his clients sought help after discovering that their partner had had an affair. When Shu established the agency in 2001, the number of people seeking advice was between 10 and 20 a day, but the figure has now soared to more than 200.

Improved transportation and the development and rapid spread of communications platforms means it is easier than ever to have an affair, according to counselors, who believe the frequent exposure of related behavior by well-known figures in the entertainment industry is making the public less
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 67 Max Pacioretty Authentic Home Red C Patch Hockey Jersey confident about marriage.

In mid-August, movie star Wang Baoqiang filed for divorce on the grounds that his wife was having an affair with his agent. Meanwhile, 10 days later, rumors spread online that the wife of Zhang Jizhong, one of China’s most prominent television producers, was sexually involved with his godson, movie director Xiao Qi, even though no evidence had been produced and neither party had commented publicly about the situation.

Lin Zi, vice-chairman of the Shanghai Psychological Counseling Association, partly attributed the high incidence of extramarital affairs to the public’s “excessive focus” on the pursuit of wealth in the past two decades as China’s economy boomed.

“After working hard all day, people don’t want to talk much at home. That may lead to anxiety and suspicion among partners and growing conflict between them if the situation persists. When a person has low satisfaction in their family life, they want to make up for it in other ways,” she said.

However, when someone who has cheated on their spouse opts for professional advice, the counselor will not necessarily drag them back to the family. Instead, they will observe and assess the client’s real needs.

“Everybody needs to feel safe, valued, intimate and stable in a relationship. I help them to compare the two options to see which better satisfies their needs. The costs, both financial and emotional, are much lower,” Shi said.

Dealing with differences

The lack of an appropriate way of dealing with differences between couples is another major problem, according to counselors, who said every person has different needs and an important task in marriage is to seek common ground while putting aside minor differences and disagreements.

Moreover, every couple copes with differences in their own way, so counselors prefer both partners to participate in the sessions so they can see how they talk with each other and help them to improve their communication skills.

Lin said she often asks a couple to swap roles and explain how their other half usually responds to certain situations. Then they articulate what they really expect their other half to say in such circumstances.

“Through this process, they often find that what they are used to saying actually hurts their spouse a lot, and that such communication is ineffective and aggravates the problem,” she said.

In Lin’s experience, the role-playing process reveals to the couple that problems mostly arise from differences in personality, but that doesn’t mean their love has come to an end – a common perception when marital tensions surface.

“We listen to their stories of the environment and family they grew up in, and discover where their behavior originated,” Shi said. As an example, he explained that he has often noticed that men who say little in times of conflict usually grew up with quarrelsome parents where the father avoided engaging with the issue
Women’s Authentic Reebok Montreal Canadiens 31 Carey Price 2016 Winter Classic White Jersey by remaining silent.

“The role-playing process allows the wife to understand that her husband’s silence doesn’t mean ‘he doesn’t love me anymore’ or ‘he doesn’t care about our family’. He was taught to cope with conflict in this way by what he saw and heard during childhood,” he said.

“Through counseling, we want to intensify such awareness, so people enter marriage with all their experiences, background and history fully known, which will help them better understand their partner and their relationship so they will learn to treat their partner in the way that person prefers.”

Patrick Roy Jersey Has South Korea hardened toward helping its northern neighbor?

It’s unlikely South Korea will provide humanitarian aid to North Koreans in response to historic floods brought on by torrential rains last month, even if the
Patrick Roy Jersey totalitarian country asks for help, a spokesman for the South’s Unification Ministry said in a news conference Monday.Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 33 Patrick Roy Authentic Away White Ice Hockey Jersey.

The comments by Jeong Joon-hee, the ministry spokesman, are a sign of the government’s increasing agitation over the North’s nuclear program. It conducted its fifth nuclear test Sept. 9, about a week after the floods brought on by typhoon Lionrock.

“It should have spent the massive expenses not in a nuclear test, but in helping
Custom Canadiens Jersey its people recover from the flood damage,” said Mr. Jeong.

Recommended: Nuclear North Korea: 6 ways it differs from Iran

South Korea’s stance on humanitarian aid marks a shift by President Park Geun-hye since she took office in 2013. At that time, she attempted to blend the hard-line attitude of her predecessor, Lee Myung-bak, who said that closer ties would
Carey Price Jersey be impossible without an end to the North’s nuclear program,
Youth Reebok Montreal Canadiens 33 Patrick Roy Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey,with a “trust building process.” But as the North has continued with its nuclear program, defying international sanctions and prioritizing military spending over the needs of its people, the South and much of the world have struggled over how to respond.

“What you’re seeing in the South Korean statement is an expression of the frustration of a lot of people,” says Troy Stangarone, senior director of congressional affairs and trade at the Korea Economic Institute of America, a think tank in Washington D.C. “North Korea has advanced its nuclear program, but doesn’t seem to be concerned with the welfare of its populace. If something does happen, it expects the international community to provide the resources it needs.”

“The government is not following through on its responsibilities to provide for its people,” Mr. Stangarone tells The Christian Science Monitor in a phone interview Monday.

The flooding brought on by typhoon Lionrock on Aug. 29 devastated North Korea’s border with China, the poorest region of the country. In what the North Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said were the “heaviest downpours” since 1945, 133 people were killed, 395 are missing, and more than 35,500 houses and 8,700 schools and other buildings were damaged, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. Nearly 40,000 acres of arable land were damaged just before the harvest and the start of winter. About 600,000 people have also lost access to safe water and other basic services,
Max Pacioretty Jersey according to the UN.

The UN World Food Program said last week it delivered emergency food to the Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 31 Carey Price Authentic Home Red NHL Hockey Jersey Cheap region, including fortified biscuits and beans it diverted from local factories it operates to feed children and pregnant and nursing mothers. But the UN has said that isn’t enough. It has asked for $1.2 million to replenish the supplies for the women and children, according to The New York Times. Overall, the agency said it would need $21 million to help people in North Korea until August 2017.

Meanwhile, Jeong, the South’s ministry spokesman, said the North has not asked for South Korean help.

“And we don’t expect it to,” he said. “Even if it does, I think, given the present situation, that the possibility of providing aid is low.”

Throughout most of the modern history of the Korean Peninsula, the South has turned a cold shoulder to the North. But in 1998, then-South President Kim Dae-jung famously instituted his “sunshine policy,” which aimed to encourage interaction and economic assistance, and under which the South agreed to provide unconditional humanitarian aid to the North when it needed it. Mr. Kim’s successor, Roh Moo-hyun, continued this policy,even as the North threatened its southern neighbor with missiles on the eve of his 2003 inauguration.

When Lee Myung-bak assumed office in 2007, he adopted a tougher approach. He demanded North Korean engagement (including humanitarian aid) be accompanied by nuclear disarmament progress. During Mr. Lee’s term, the North responded with more nuclear and ballistic missiles tests, including two incidents that left 50 South Koreans dead in 2010. Following one of the incidents on Yeongpyeong Island, in which two soldiers and two civilians were killed, public opinion also shifted against providing any humanitarian aid to the North.

Park, when she was elected in 2013, promised to combine the hard tactics of her predecessor with a more sympathetic touch.

“We need to keep a balance between the carrot and the stick, security and
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 67 Max Pacioretty Authentic Home Red C Patch Hockey Jersey exchanges,” South Korea’s Unification Minister Ryoo Kihl-jae told reporters at the time. “We would like to take some time to unravel the problem step by step and hopefully strike up a relationship.”

But North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has still moved forward with his nuclear and weapons programs, conducting two nuclear tests in this year alone.

Humanitarian groups say North Korea has prioritized investing in its military over feeding its citizens. This is problematic, they say, because the country socialized its agriculture, and its landscape is cold and mountainous. Moreover, unlike China, South Korea, and Japan, North Korea does not import bulk grain.

South Korea is not alone in this challenge over how much humanitarian aid to provide North Korea and when. The United States provides some humanitarian assistance to North Korea during natural disasters and famines, but offers virtually no economic aid. Other potential global donors have shown reluctance to offer aid because it’s unclear if it will reach the people of the hardest-hit regions, as North Korea has imposed conditions on international donors’ abilities to monitor aid.

The US, South Korea, and Japan also spoke Sunday in New York about imposing tougher sanctions on the Hermit Kingdom for its latest nuclear test.

Humanitarians are faced with this ethical conundrum, too.

Marcus Noland, director of studies at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, summed it up in a contribution to The Guardian in 2014.

“We evidently care more about hungry North Koreans than their government does,” he said. “We should provide assistance. But we should be clear-eyed about the terms of that engagement and seek to provide aid in ways consistent with our Women’s Authentic Reebok Montreal Canadiens 31 Carey Price 2016 Winter Classic White Jersey values and our obligations under international law.”

Lamar Miller Football Jersey Seattle high school football team kneels for national anthem

A Seattle high school football team knelt during the playing of the national anthem before a game on Friday night, embracing a silent protest for social justice initiated last month by NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Players and coaches from Garfield High School knelt in unison before their game against West Seattle High School, and some West Seattle players also knelt,

Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers’ No. 2 quarterback, declined to stand during the national anthem ahead of a pre-season game on Aug. 26, setting off a debate about race relations, policing and the mixing of politics and sports.

Garfield players decided to kneel after talking among themselves about Kaepernick and social injustice, Coach Joey Thomas said.

“Let’s just talk about it. How are you killing these African American males on camera and we can’t even get a day in court?” Thomas said, according to the

The Washington Redskins passer was hesitant and off target in the loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He played like a young quarterback unsure, unconfident and

Lamar Miller Football Jersey longer a work in progress?’ His answer was what I would echo here, and that it’s still clicking. You’ve never figured it out. You’ve never arrived. The minute you think you have is probably when you’re going to be gone. I’m going to keep working, keep going, and I understand that. I think I’ll always view myself as a work in progress, and I think that’s how other people can view it too.”

Cousins is absolutely correct: The best quarterbacks are never satisfied, always working on improving every single aspect of their craft, every day of every year.There is a lot to improve upon for Cousins after Week 1 as the Redskins passer prepares to take on the Dallas Cowboys. Cousins was 30 for 43 passing for 329 yards and two interceptions. A lot of those yards were hollow, garbage-time stats.

The Redskins stance on Cousins all offseason has been that they want to see him

Williams stays inbounds as clock runs out on ‘Boys.

Last year, it was Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning who had to face the music after mismanaging the clock late in the Giants’ opener in Dallas. This time around,
Will Fuller Jersey For Sale Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams did the
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 15 Will Fuller Elite Away White Football Jersey Sale honors.

Down one with just over a minute to go and no timeouts, the Cowboys moved the ball 26 yards in 53 seconds to their own 46-yard line. With 12 seconds left in the game, rookie quarterback Dak Prescott dropped back and threw to Williams,
Will Fuller Texans Jersey who was running an out route short of the first down. Instead of running out of bounds at around the Giants’ 46 to stop the clock, Williams inexplicably cut back inside, only to get tackled inbounds at the 41-yard line. The Jerryworld clock ticked down to zero before the Cowboys could get lined up to spike the ball, handing the Giants a 20-19 win.

If Williams had run out of bounds, Dallas would have been tasked with a fourth
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 15 Will Fuller Elite Navy Blue Team Color NFL Jersey
down from New York’s 46, or roughly a 63-yard field goal attempt. But with nine seconds to go, Dallas surely could have gotten off at least one more play if it
Will Fuller Football Jersey desired. Instead, the Cowboys waste a intradivisonal home game that they could have — should have — won.

To no one’s surprise, Williams got zero grief from his coach after the loss.

“Really what he need to do there was simply run out of bounds, and it’s a well-
Will Fuller Jersey practiced situation,” coach Jason Garrett said after the game. “We’ve been in that situation a lot. His instinct took him inside. With no timeouts and twelve seconds to go, he needs to catch the ball and get out of bounds. We’d reassess the situation whether we’d kick it from there and try to get a little closer.”Women’s Nike Houston Texans 15 Will Fuller Elite Away White Football Jersey Sale.
