ALLEN PARK, Mich. Wholesale Air Jordan 6 . -- Matthew Stafford will take every snap for the Detroit Lions if the season goes as planned.If he cant, a seldom-used veteran and sixth-round pick are preparing to play.Dan Orlovsky, who has played in just 27 games since making his NFL debut in 2005, will likely be the teams No. 2 quarterback. Jake Rudock, who started at Michigan and Iowa the previous two years, seems to be putting himself in a position to earn a roster spot as Detroits third-string signal caller.Rudock, though, refused to acknowledge he has done enough to make the team.I havent even thought of that, he said Tuesday. Im kind focused on the practice we have here in a couple hours. You guys are going a little too long term for me.And thats one of the reasons the Lions made a low-risk selection, taking Rudock 191st overall in the draft after he started a total of 38 games for the Wolverines last year and Hawkeyes the previous two seasons.The level-headed Rudock, who hopes to be a doctor when his career ends, has appeared to make the most of his opportunities this preseason in practices and two exhibition games. Rudock has completed 16 of 22 passes for 162 yards with a touchdown and an interception.Hes a guy thats very smart, very determined, doesnt get rattled, got composure, Detroit coach Jim Caldwell said. He keeps getting better, and I think thats certainly very, very important.Rudock started slowly last season at Michigan before flourishing under coach Jim Harbaugh, who played quarterback and has had success developing players at the pivotal position in college and the NFL.Playing in two different offenses the previous two years has allowed Rudock to adjust to learning a third scheme this summer.I think thats helpful, he said. Its helpful in understanding a lot of guys are going to have similar concepts, pass game, run game. But you have to change the verbiage and kind of learn a new language.Stafford has liked what he has seen so far from Rudock, who is learning an up-tempo offense with a lot of adjustments that have to be made quickly.Jakes done a good job, Stafford said. This isnt an easy system to come in and learn. Theres a whole lot to it.Orlovsky, meanwhile, is ready and willing to hold a clipboard and wear a cap on the sideline on Sundays, as he has for more than a decade.Detroit drafted him in the fifth round, 145th overall, in 2005 and he played in two games as a rookie. He started seven times for the Lions in 2008 when they became the NFLs first 0-16 team, and he became a punch line for obliviously rolling out of the end zone with the ball for a safety.When Cleveland quarterback Cody Kessler did the same thing recently, Orlovsky said his wife texted him with a video clip of the play.I would hope I could laugh at it by now, said Orlovsky, who went on to play for Houston, Indianapolis and Tampa Bay before returning to Detroit.Game notes TE Eric Ebron, who injured his lower right leg Aug. 6, returned to the practice field Tuesday. ... The Lions signed CB Brandon McGee, who played in one game last season for the New York Giants, and waived CB Keith Lewis.---Online:AP NFL websites: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Air Jordan 6 . Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. Cheap Air Jordan 6 Wholesale .Y. - General manager Billy King says the Brooklyn Nets are looking to add a big man and confirmed the team worked out centre Jason Collins, who would become the first openly gay active NBA player if signed. http://www.cheapairjordan6.us/ . They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina has known all summer it wont have one of its top receivers and special-teams performers for the first half of its opener against No. 18 Georgia.The No. 22 Tar Heels are still tweaking how theyll adjust the lineup with senior Mack Hollins serving a suspension due to a targeting penalty from the bowl loss to end last season.Really the biggest deal for us is hes been a starter on all four special teams, so youre talking about four different units that youre having to prepare for, UNC coach Larry Fedora said Monday at his game-week news conference. Thats been more difficult than preparing offensively. The next receiver will step up. Weve got a lot of guys that have been playing the position.Hollins was penalized for a helmet-to-helmet hit while making a block in the second half of the Russell Athletic Bowl loss to Baylor. By rule, that ejection triggered a first-half suspension in the next game, carrying over to the first 30 minutes of Saturdays game against the Bulldogs in Atlanta.Hollins, a 6-foot-4 former walk-on from Rockville, Maryland, had 30 catches for 745 yards -- good for an NCAA-best 24.8 yards per reception -- with eight touchdowns last year as the Tar Heels offense set school records on the way to an 11-win season.But his impact is just as important on special teams, where he has served as a three-year captain. Look no further than receiver Ryan Switzers 78-yard punt return for a touchdown in a November blowout of Miami: Hollins made the first block to give Switzer space for a clean catch and drove the tackler behind the play, then sprinted back to get in fronnt of Switzer and lead a convoy of blockers down the sideline and into the end zone. Wholesale Air Jordan 6 China. Hes really good. Ill just say that, Georgia first-year coach Kirby Smart said. Hes the best gunner, kickoff cover guy, plays on every special team. He is a dominant feature player.Fedora said he expected it would take multiple different players to fill Hollins jobs on special teams. He didnt sound quite as concerned with replacing Hollins on a deep and veteran-led offense.Switzer and Bug Howard will serve as the top targets for junior quarterback Mitch Trubisky, while Hollins is still listed atop the depth chart at the other receiver spot. Junior Austin Proehl would appear to be the player most likely to earn a bigger role with Hollins out for a half, though Fedora said its still undecided exactly who will start in Hollins spot. He also said the Tar Heels have been having multiple receivers work at inside and outside positions to make them interchangeable.The good news for the Tar Heels is that Hollins will have fresh legs when he takes the field after halftime Saturday.Its just going to be exciting with him bringing that leadership and energy the second half, Trubisky said. Itll definitely give us a spark. ... Its going to be a cool moment. Its going to be different.---AP Sports Writer Paul Newberry in Athens, Georgia, contributed to this report.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap and the APs college football site at http://collegefootball.ap.org Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball Jerseys Hockey Jerseys China Supply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '
