FLORHAM PARK, N. Yan Gomes Jersey .J. - Eric Decker went from playing in the Super Bowl a year ago to simply playing for pride during the final weeks of this season.Through it all, the New York Jets wide receiver has no regrets.Decker refuses to look back at what might have been if the Denver Broncos wanted to re-sign him.The fact is, they didnt, and he came to New York with big hopes for the Big Apple.Instead, he has endured a 2-11 season with the futures of his coach, general manager and many of his teammates uncertain.I mean, honestly, going from a good team or an average team or the record were at now, its very small, Decker said Thursday. The details, honestly, separate the great from the good, and the great from the average. Its about your preparation, details of how you practice, details of how you watch film, the details of doing things the right way.Were very close.It might sound perhaps delusional to some, but several players other than Decker have insisted over the past few weeks that the Jets arent as bad as the record indicates. They see signs of hope, that things can be turned around with some major off-season tweaks.Many fans and media believe wholesale changes are in store for the Jets, who will miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season under Rex Ryan.Owner Woody Johnson will have major decisions to make as far as Ryan and GM John Idzik, and he told the New York Daily News at the NFL meetings in Dallas that this has been the hardest year Ive had in terms of losses.Hes invested a lot of stuff into this organization and this team, and our job as players is performance, said Decker, who leads the Jets with 55 catches. He cant control performance. He can control what he provides us and what he does to help us as far as athletes.Its one of the best organizations in the NFL, so for us, weve got to find a way to get some more wins. Its frustrating the locker room and were the ones grinding on the field every day, and its got to be frustrated for him as well because this is really his organization and he wants to see success.But that could mean a new GM, a new coach and several new players, a massive amount of turnover for a team that has lost by 20 or more points three times — but by 14 or fewer eight times this season.Obviously, theres certain pieces throughout a team or certain bounces throughout a year that help you along the way, Decker said, but for us, weve got to find our identity, do the little things right and just keep chipping away because it will turn.I dont think its far off at all from being a playoff kind of team.Decker is also realist, though, and he knows changes are coming to some extent.Theres pieces, obviously, that well need to help us be a better football team, Decker said. Thats a question for the personnel department, for management, to make. As far as the core of this team, the guys that we have in this locker room, theres a reason why were all here. Were not performing well enough to get victories and theres questions and answers behind that, but I feel that the core of this team is definitely championship-minded and championship athletes.Moving forward, though, that core could be led by someone other than Ryan on the field. The coach understands — and shares — Johnsons disappointment over how this season has unfolded.Ryan insisted he is focused only on the teams next game at Tennessee on Sunday, and Johnson is justified in whatever he decides at the end of the season.That includes the fate of the coach.I mean, I love Rex, Decker said. Thats one of the reasons why I came here. ... Hes been a great players coach as far as taking care of you, doing things and providing you with things, and being real with you when you ask questions. I have the utmost respect for him. Thats out of my control as far as whats going to happen next year, but I definitely appreciate and respect him.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Larry Doby Jersey . -- The Denver Broncos are shuffling their offensive line this off-season and Orlando Franklin provided some insight into their plans Monday by tweeting that hes moving from right tackle to left guard. Lonnie Chisenhall Jersey http://www.baseballindiansprostore.com/indians-satchel-paige-jersey/ . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain.TSN Baseball Insider Steve Phillips answers several questions each week. This week, topics include the "bean wars" between the Red Sox and Rays, Blue Jays draft pick Jeff Hoffman, Justin Verlanders struggles, and surprising all-star voting results. 1) In light of the “bean wars” between Tampa Bay and Boston, what should the league do to reduce the number of retaliatory on-field incidents? Are the suspensions enough of a deterrent? Major League Baseball has reduced the number of on-field violent confrontations in a pretty significant way from the 1980s and before.  The issuing of warnings to teams after a potentially intentional beaning has reduced the number of retaliatory responses.  As we saw in the Rays/Red Sox series, boys will still be boys but it is better now than it used to be.  Baseball also has a “heads up” program where umpires are alerted prior to a series about any bad blood that exists between the teams.  Umpires can issue warnings before a game if they believe the lingering animosity could surface.  This pregame warning serves as a deterrent and puts players on notice that at the first sign of monkey business there will be action taken.  There are two changes that I would make to further address this issue.  Firstly, I would encourage umpires to eject the instigator in a bean ball situation.  Too many times the pitcher who strikes first suffers no penalty.  Rays pitcher Davis Price hit Res Sox slugger David Ortiz with a pitch that may have been intentional.  The umpire chose to only issue a warning to both teams. That was done with the intent of heading off possible retaliation against the Rays. That warning didnt work and Brandon Workman, Red Sox pitcher, was later ejected for throwing a pitch behind Rays third baseman Evan Longoria. If Price had been ejected, then the Red Sox would not have felt as compelled to bean Longoria for payback.  Price didnt get a suspension at all. Second, I would institute a “no third-man in” policy.  If there is a fight on the field, no other player can leave his position on the field or in the dugouts and bullpen.  If they do then they face an automatic 10-game suspension. This should serve as a team deterrent that will keep all-out brawls from occurring. Thirdly, I propose that penalties become stiffer for the initial combatants as well.  If you fight, you know you will serve at least a five-game suspension for a position player and relief pitcher and a 15-game suspension for a starting pitcher.  It would be great to end all on-field violence.  It wont ever happen but these changes would get us a bit closer. 2) The Blue Jays used the ninth-overall draft pick on Jeff Hoffman on Thursday; a player who just underwent Tommy John surgery. What does this say about the Jays development strategy, especially in light of Alex Anthopoulos drafting habits in the past? The Blue Jays have been drawn to the high-ceiling type players in the first round under Anthopoulos.  They have shot for the moon.  They want impact from their first round pick.  Nowadays, many teams like predictability in first round selections.  They will take less impact and a lower ceiling for a greater likelihood that the player will get to the majors.  Not the Jays. Jeff Hoffman was thought to be one of the top three picks in this draft prior to injuring his arm and undergoing Tommy John surgery.  This selection makes a statement on so many levels.  First, the Jays believe that Hoffman is an extraordinary talent.  Why else would any team take a baseball player whose injury prohibits him from doing what he does best?  Secondly, the Jays believe in Tommy John surgery.  It isnt quite as predictable as getting ones tonsils removed but the track record of success is very good.  The Jays fully expect Hoffman to be 100 %.  Thirdly, the Jays are saving money.  Hoffman is a value because they took him with the ninth pick when many thought he could go as high as second overall.  With the injury, the Jays will likely save some money but they are also assuming some level of risk and that has dollar value. With multiple first round selections, the Jays gave themselves the financial flexibility to get their picks signed this year. The fact that Hoffman is a college pitcher means that he is a bit more advanced in his development than if he were a high school pitcher and therefore missing some playing time now should not set his development back much at all.  3) Justin Verlanders 2014 numbers have been less than inspirational. Hes 6-5 on a first-place club, has an ERA over 4.00, is presently sporting the worst WHIP of his career, and hasnt logged a complete game since 2012. Should the alarm bells be going offf for the Tigers? The Tigers should be alarmed about Justin Verlander. Danny Salazar Jersey.   He is still a good pitcher but the dominant overpowering ace from a few years back is no longer on their roster.  Verlander has thrown 1,885 innings in eight and a half years, which includes seasons of 251, 240, and 238 innings pitched in individual seasons. He has thrown the most pitches in baseball this year. In fact, he has thrown the most pitches in baseball since 2009. He has led the league in pitches thrown every year but one from 2009-2014. In 2010 he finished four pitches behind Dan Haren for second most. Verlander is a workhorse. He loves to go deep in the game and he loves to strike out hitters.  He has been an amazing pitcher. The fact that he has such great stuff is a blessing and a curse. It is a blessing because he has won a ton of games for Detroit.  It is a curse because he has been so good that he works deep counts since he strikes out so many hitters.  And he has always been a better option for the manager than anyone in the bullpen, so he pitches deeper in the game. All of this has taken a toll.  He is wearing down a bit.  We have seen CC Sabathia fall off over the past couple of years because of the same reasons.  The arm only has so many bullets and they have both used their fair share.  Verlander can still be successful, but he is going to have to make adjustments.  Command has to be more important than velocity for him.  He used to regularly run his fastball into the high 90s.  He no longer can pitch there.  If he tries to generate too much velocity from delivery, his command suffers.  Verlander needs to try and retire hitters on three pitches or less with well-located pitches.  Velocity cant matter.  This will allow him to be more efficient now and give him more years on the back end of his career.  4) The most recent All Star vote tally had some very interesting results.  Torontos Melky Cabrera, is ranked third among AL outfielders in voting.  Orioles designated hitter, Nelson Cruz, passed Red Sox slugger David Ortiz for the top DH.  Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is in a close race in the NL outfield as well.  Why are these results so significant?  All three of these players have served suspensions for performance enhancement drugs. Yet, the fans seem to be putting that aside as they consider their performances this year.  The fans believe that what they are seeing on the field is legitimate and real. They dont think it is enhanced.  It is just good ol fashioned baseball.  The All Star balloting has long been a popularity contest.  The fans votes dont always coincide with the players votes or the stats.  If the fans like a certain player, he has a shot to be an all-star regardless of his numbers.  What is even more amazing is that the fans arent holding grudges like they have in the past.  It had seemed that fans wanted to send a message to cheaters that their actions were unacceptable.  One of the few ways they could do that was with their voting.  But that feeling seems to be waning.  Fans are either forgiving the players for past wrongs or just accepting of what has happened to the game. Either way, we all win. I have learned that giving forgiveness is not for the other person but it is for me.  When I forgive someone they may react in any number of ways.  But when I give forgiveness it releases a burden on me. I no longer feel pain and resentment.  Baseball fans are showing healthy growth by surrendering their anger to baseball players.  It shows growth.  It shows a certain trust in the drug policy.  It shows compassion and understanding. My hope is that baseball writers will take the lead of the fans.  Writers feel duped by players.  They feel like they were made fools of for celebrating home runs and record-setting accomplishments.  They resent it and dont ever want to get burned that way again.  My hope is that the writers will move to a place of forgiveness of the players as well.  It is time to move forward.  The writers need to look at the steroid era as just that, an era.  It wasnt done to them.  It was just what happened and they were there to document it.  So they should document it.  Vote steroid users in the Hall of Fame.  Lets appropriately remember what happened so we dont repeat our mistakes.  The writers should make history by passing that history forward.  It is time to heal. It is the right thing for all of us that made mistakes in the steroid era of baseball.  So let this day start the all-out campaign for Melky Cabrera, Nelson Cruz and Ryan Braun for the All Star team!
