The QB Giant will excel in Year 2



The QB Giant will excel in Year 2

Quite difficult to take the second year quarterback jump in ordinary circumstances.

But this is the word of highly respected quarterback teachers Peyton and Eli Manning, Duke head coach David Cutcliffe: Daniel Jones’ second year leap will not be compromised by learning the new system under the new coaching staff, and it will not be compromised by a virtual offseason program.

“I think we will see a much better Daniel Jones,” Cutcliffe told The Post. “I think he will be a much better product than he was a year ago.”

Cutcliffe believes Jones will develop under the new Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.

“I know a little Jason. I think the world is him,” Cutcliffe said. “He will do work with Daniel. I think Jason and Daniel are similar, very intelligent, analytical people. I think they will be a good couple.

“I sat with Jason and [Tony] The previous priest, and spoke of football, and I saw his approach to coaching Tony Romo and the relationships they had. That’s why I made the assumption that I would see a similar relationship between Jason and Daniel. “

The young Quarterback franchise of the New York Football Giants, who was 23 on Wednesday, was pushed in the Manningesque manner.

“Believe me, he works 10 hours a day to master this himself,” Cutcliffe said. “I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anyone who is more excited. … He is every worker that Peyton and Eli are throughout their careers.

“I think he is really starting to understand what they expect or what they want to do offensively, and that will help him become successful in this transition.”

“He certainly knows what’s in front of him. I like the fact that he is very positive in conversations about the intensity of meetings with new staff, accountability. He felt very happy about it. “

Cutcliffe raved about Jones’s accuracy and resilience as a beginner, and sat in February with him for a comprehensive constructive-criticism review.

There are three main areas of improvement that need to be covered:

Ball security. Pocket movement. Arm angle.

Former Duke Quarterback Anthony Boone has worked diligently with Jones on issues that cause 18 fumbled and lost 11, and on pocket movements.

“Anthony Boone is a winning quarterback in the history of Duke football,” Cutcliffe said, “and Anthony is not 6-5. Anthony just has a good understanding of the game, a good understanding of fundamentals and mechanics, a great work ethic like Daniel. And so they really fit together.

“Pocket movements are different from pocket presence. Daniel’s presence was extraordinary. He was tough, he was brave, he kept staring down. But one of the things you must learn in your pocket is to stop moving away from what you are reacting to, and move more to what is safe in your pocket, move more to what you see. Don’t stay away from what you really don’t see, you know, a man on the edge. I think when you overreact to the edge pass rush which is what happens to it, a number of things will happen – one, you move to what you don’t see; the other is that sometimes you drop the ball, it’s just reflex. “

“What is pocket movement is about one second max,” he said. “It’s very subtle, and sometimes the more athletic, the more they want to run away … The other is when you run the ball as a quarterback in the NFL, stop running like a back. Some of the mistakes are hit with a good run, or just overcome. “

Cutcliffe had impressed Jones that navigating the NFL’s hard pocket demanded what he called a strict stroke.

“It just makes the ball go up and down, keep it going, just tighten your movements a little,” Cutcliffe said. “You have to do it naturally, but everyone must do it. And he has done a very good job to do that. “

Jones has always embraced a leadership role at Duke and will be more comfortable stepping into that role more this season.

“I know in talking to Eli that Eli thinks Daniel is a very special person who cares about other people, cares about football,” Cutcliffe said. “It means a lot to me that Eli sees the same qualities. You are not a leader if you are not respected. And I think he has the respect of all his friends. “

I asked Cutcliffe about the awkward period at the start of the 2019 season, when Manning and Jones both acknowledged knowing that changes in the quarterback were on the horizon.

“It was very strange to me, it all hurts because it has such a close relationship with the two of them,” Cutcliffe. “I don’t think it’s surprising, Eli is not good, but amazing in the process, and Daniel respected Eli very much during the process. That may be as good as what has been done in this type of arrangement. “

Jones will not be disturbed following in the footsteps of giant Eli Manning.

“One of the things I like about Daniel, and I believe this is the best way to be a quarterback in such conditions – and Eli is the same thing – they never really care about what other people think about their work,” Cutcliffe said. “They are so focused on the quality of their own work that they don’t have time for that.”

If he is Danny Boy as a beginner, hope he becomes Danny Man in 2020. Maybe even Danny Mann someday.

Portuguese military admits ‘it will take time’ until territory is taken under control



Portuguese military admits 'it will take time' until territory is taken under control

The “path” chosen for about a year in the fight against rebel groups in the province of Cabo Delgado in northern Mozambique is “the right one,” Brigadier General Nuno Lemos Pires said in an interview with Lusa.

“Now, while the situation is not fully under control, we all understand that, as in any other counter-terrorism situation in the world, it will take a lot of time,” added the head of the European military training mission, although he acknowledged that this “ does not mean that sometimes there are no fears and failures.

However, “this is part of what constitutes an action taken against terrorists who operate in a very wide area, who in themselves have the initiative and the ability to hide in a very wide area,” he said.

In fact, he stressed, many of the recent attacks that have taken place in the south of Cabo Delgado in recent weeks are due to the fact that Islamist extremist rebels had to “flight from the north” of the province.

“Because this was a consolidated military operation carried out in close cooperation between the Mozambique Defense and Security Forces (FSS), [e com as forças d]Rwanda and SAMIM (Southern African Development Community Mission (SADC) in Mozambique), who were clearing out the intervention areas that existed in the area, the reaction of many terrorists was to flee the area, go further south, where they were not pursued. , and make new attacks,” he explained.

“In such cases, the initiative almost always belongs to the terrorists. There are few of them, they hide among the population, they move over very large territories, with a lot of dense vegetation, it becomes very difficult to find them, but you can easily move,” he continued.

On the other hand, the Portuguese general emphasized, “it is now difficult for these groups” “to concentrate power and forces for large-scale operations, as was the case three years ago during the conquests, such as Mocimboa da Praia or Palma.” ,” he said.

“They don’t have that ability. Many of these attacks even demonstrate [estratégias] survival [clássicas das guerrilhas]. They’re looking for food, they’re looking for supplies, they’re searching deep down for a place where they can survive, because the area is already under quite a lot of control. [por parte] Mozambique FSS, Rwandan forces and SAMIM,” he explained.

In this context, Nuno Lemos Pires highlighted the “quick response” of the Mozambican authorities to each of these developments, starting with head of state Filipe Nyusi.

“I think it is exemplary that the moment there is a movement or a series of significant attacks in other areas, we immediately see the President of Mozambique heading north, linking up with his Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces (CEMGFA). , with the Minister of Defense, with the Minister of the Interior, and outline plans on the ground for a quick change of equipment and the ability to respond to such movements,” he said.

During one such trip to northern Mozambique in mid-June, Mozambican Interior Minister Arsenia Massingue said that Mozambican police were informing the “enemy” – the rebel forces in Cabo Delgado – about the positions of the FDS and allied forces on the ground.

However, Lemos Pires downplayed the situation. “We must be aware that there are infiltrations in any political system. It’s happening everywhere. Ignoring this dimension is tantamount to ignoring what is happening everywhere,” he said.

“I don’t know of a single case of insurgency, counterinsurgency, terrorist or counter-terrorist combat where these leaks didn’t happen frequently. You need to be careful. .

In addition to the vastness of the territory that has been the scene of conflict and the topography favorable to insurgent guerrilla strategies, the porous borders with Tanzania to the north of Cabo Delgado and Malawi to the northwest also pose a danger. challenges the SDF and allied forces of SAMIM and Rwanda.

Lemos Pires also relativized this question. “We are talking about transnational terrorism, and it is good to understand that the situation in the north of Mozambique, in Cabo Delgado, is not limited and is not limited – and has never been limited – exclusively and exclusively to this region. A phenomenon that exists throughout Africa. , namely in Central Africa,” he said.

The UETM commander even took advantage of this circumstance to formulate an “extended response” to “a broad problem, a regional one, and the solution must also be a broad regional one.”

Therefore, “it’s very good what we see here on the ground, in fact, this is the unification of the efforts of regional African forces to try to deal with a problem that really worries everyone,” he concluded.

“What happens in one region can affect another. That is why it is in everyone’s interest that these groups be fought, detained and that the narrative that they are currently spreading can be counteracted – we hope that there are fewer and fewer successes,” the Portuguese general stressed.

Sporting confirmed the title of champion of Portugal in futsal and became a two-time champion of the country – Notícias de Coimbra



Sporting confirmed the title of champion of Portugal in futsal and became a two-time champion of the country - Notícias de Coimbra

Today, Sporting CP confirmed the title of Portuguese futsal and became the champion of the country, once again beating Benfica 4:3 in the third game of the play-off final at the Pavilão Joao Rocha stadium in Lisbon.

With this triumph, the Lions add their 17th national title, become two-time champions and achieve something unprecedented in the sport in Portugal, reaching the title by winning every play-off game and completing this feat with three wins in the final against rival Lisbon , winning the first two matches 5-4 and 4-3 respectively.

If in the first two matches the “lions” always started on the losing end, this time the team of Nuno Dias reversed the trend and led through Pauleto (05 minutes), making it 2-0 due to Cavinato (13) and Cardinal (18). ) signed a third before the break.

In the second half, André Sousa (26) moved to Benfica, Ziki (33) turned Léonin’s lead into a 4-1 lead, and Artur scored twice for the Eagles (34 and 39).

Sporting seized the initiative from the very beginning, and after Pani Varela threatened to hit the post, Pauleta really opened the scoring for the Lions with the next move, only having managed to pull over to the side of the road with a well-aimed blow. pole, after help from Eric.

Alvalade’s team were encouraged by the goal, and in the following betting twice he cost Benfica André Sousa, who, thanks to two excellent interventions, avoided Sporting’s second goal.

However, even the “elastic” goalkeeper of the “eagles” could not prevent the score from 2:0 in the 13th minute, when Cavinato appeared “in the face” of the goalkeeper to deflect a free kick from Alex Merlin.

The “party”, which took over the Joao Rocha pavilion due to the Lions’ two-goal advantage, led to an overabundance in the stands: the fans broke the glass next to the “red” bench, due to which the game was interrupted for several minutes.

Three minutes before the end of the first half, Benfica had a great opportunity to close the gap: Sporting punished Sporting with a free kick for the sixth foul: Arthur missed him in a one-on-one match with Goncalo Portuguese, hitting the post.

The “punishment” for the Luz team was even more severe a minute later when the Cardinal made it 3-0 to the national champions. Pauleta, in an individual move, took all the defense of the “Reds” to the “tug” and filed for a support, which, in front of the helpless Andre Souza, chose a side and struck for the score.

In the second half, despite a greater lead in the match when Benfica appeared to be shaken by a big disadvantage, Sporting saw the opposition close in on the score thanks to a 26th-minute André Souza goal. even touched Merlin before entering the gate in Gitta’s defense.

Shortly after that, Benfica could have re-entered the final discussion, but Arthur, after a combination with Carlos Monteiro, hit the post again, missing the opportunity to make the score 3:2.

Benfica failed, while Sporting responded with a fatality, and Ziki stamped his name on the scorecard in the 33rd minute: first Pani Varela hit the iron, and then the green-white center was faster on reload.

After two iron balls, Artur finally “set” his goal and lowered it to 4-2 in the 34th minute. Toward the last minute, the central “incarnate” made the score 4:3 and left the result open until the end, but Sporting even became the national champion for the seventh time during the “reign” of Nuno Diaz as coach of the team from Alvalade. .
