Customized Hockey Jerseys the pass
  • It took new Arizona custom jerseys
    Cardinals coach Steve Wilks almost his entire introductory press
    conference to mention David Johnson's name.

    But when he did, in the middle of the final question posed to him, Wilks
    made it clear that Johnson would be the foundation of his offense.

    “As a defensive coordinator, there’s nothing more demoralizing to a team
    than being Customized Basketball Jerseys
    able to run the ball,” Wilks said. “I mean, you’re talking about taking
    the air out of an individual, so that’s going to be our premise.

    “When you look at some of the premier running backs in the National
    Football League, we have one right here in (David) Johnson.”


    In his introductory press conference, Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks
    talked about the importance of establishing a strong running game. "It
    opens up the passing game for you. It opens up play-action, so we're

    Johnson is coming off a fractured wrist that he suffered in Week 1 and
    kept him out for the rest of the year. In his last full season of
    action, 2016, he led the NFL in yards from scrimmage, as former coach
    Bruce Arians utilized Johnson’s receiving ability to complement his
    ball-carrying skills -- and to keep him from getting hit often, even
    though it didn’t prevent him from getting hurt in Week 17 of 2016 and
    Week 1 of 2017.

    Without Johnson as their primary rushing option, the Cardinals’ run game
    struggled in 2017.

    They were 30th in total rushing yards, 31st in yards per rush Customized Football Jerseys
    and 28th in rushing touchdowns. With Johnson in 2016, the Cardinals
    ranked 18th in rushing yards, 12th in yards per rush and third in
    rushing touchdowns.

    But Wilks’ philosophy differs Customized Baseball Jerseys greatly from Arians’.

    While Arians understood the benefit of a strong run game, he used the run more to set up Customized Hockey Jerseys
    the pass. Arians built his resume and reputation on his vertical
    passing attack.

    Wilks understands that, as well.

    “You’ve got to run the football and I think you’ve got to have balance
    off that,” Wilks said. “It opens up the passing game for you. It opens
    up play-action, so we’re going to run the football.”

    The Cardinals didn’t run the ball more than 452 times under Arians, and
    twice had less than 400 carries as a team. And in five years, the
    Cardinals threw 869 more times than they ran, the 11th highest
    difference in the league over that span, according to ESPN Stats &
    Information.

    As a league, 21,976 more passes were thrown than runs over the last five
    seasons.

    “Someone mentioned a pass-happy league, which I agree it is,” Wilks
    said. “But, I still believe this: You have to have a foundation of
    running the football.

    “You have to run the football in the National Football League.”
