The ways in which Eagles defender Chris Long

has committed himself Womens Nelson Agholor Jersey , and his wallet, to the community both near and far, is vast. So vast, that it’d be hard to accurately collect and note each and every way he’s used his platform to give back to those who need him, which is why he is so deserving of the team’s nomination for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. And while Long himself may be too humble to fully appreciate why he’s been given this year’s nomination, there should be no question that he deserves the honor when looking at all the work he’s done off the field. From playing for free in an effort to support education, both locally and nationally, to actually climbing Kilimanjaro (multiple times) in an effort to provide clean drinking water to millions in Africa, his commitment is relentless, and deserves to be appreciated.Waterboys.orgAs 2018 was nearing its end, NFL Films released a documentary “The Way Up: Chris Long and the Waterboys”, and it was amazing. Narrated by Uma Thurman — who you’d have no idea was the voice until the credits —, the story began with Long’s decision to continue playing football after winning a Super Bowl with New England, all in an effort to further his advocacy and platform as an NFL player.The documentary touched on Long joining the Eagles the next season, and the team’s unprecedented Super Bowl run of their own. And then, after the parade confetti finished falling Zach Ertz Jersey , it showed former and current players like Connor Barwin, Nate Boyer, Steven Jackson, and even Vince Young, preparing to take on a different challenge: Mt. Kilimanjaro.It wasn’t just athletes that made up the #ConquerKili team, but half of the group included military vets, two of which were amputees, and another who had suffered significant injuries that made the climb particularly challenging. Still, these men came together in an effort to bring awareness, and funds, to build wells in Tanzania to provide clean drinking water to thousands of children and their families.This was Long’s second trek up the mountain, and the film crew allowed him and the others to show why this effort was so important. The kids in the villages they are trying to help had to spend much of their day, before and after school, collecting water from rivers and streams that would make most American’s cringe. And while the kids then head to the classroom, the women in the village often carry 40 pound buckets of water up to 10 miles each way back to their village, some carrying two buckets , and some making more than one trip. The work to get water that’s brown and filled with all kinds of bacteria, is immeasurable, and yet, something they don’t complain about.Long has talked about his preference in putting his platform behind tangible things he can change, and building wells in these communities is something that can happen quickly and immediately changes the lives of thousands.Long has been lauded for his decision to forego a paycheck during the 2017 season, instead donating it to charity, and his commitment to that same play-for-free mentality he carried into 2018, but while those efforts get the most headlines, it’s been his work overseas that has probably had the biggest impact. And, he isn’t here for anyone to question whether his commitment should stay domestically, either.Chris Long will always be known for being an incredible football player, but his commitment to helping communities near and far will be his legacy. And, I don’t think he’d have it any other way.So, whether or not he ends up winning the 2019 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, you can bet that he will stay focused on helping others and bringing light to as many as he can.

When and where: Week 6 Womens Jake Elliott Jersey , at the Stadium of Bird DeathLast season: 8-7-1. Offense: Scoring 19th, Yards 20th, DVOA 18th; Defense Scoring 9th, Yards 4th, DVOA 4thNotable additions: Josh KlineNotable losses: Nick Easton, Mike Remmers, Sheldon RichardsonWhat are they good at? Keeping it close. The Vikings under Mike Zimmer rarely get blown out (*cough* 38-7 *cough*), and they rarely blow out other teams. Since 2016, 34 of the Vikings 50 games have been decided by 14 or fewer points. That’s how Mike Zimmer wants it, illustrated by firing John DeFilippo for not running the ball more despite the WRs his expensive QB has to throw to. So expect this game to be close, like it was last year.What are they bad at? Asset management. Only the Patriots are spending more at QB this year. Only the Dolphins are spending less on their OL. Eight other teams are spending more on their defense than their offense, and they all fit into two groupings. The first are the Texans, Ravens, Jets, and Cardinals who all have starting QBs on rookie contracts, which isn’t the case in Minnesota. Then there are the Dolphins Derek Barnett Jersey , Jaguars, Broncos, and Panthers who are all coming off losing seasons and aren’t contenders. The Vikings think they’re a Super Bowl contender, but they aren’t really built like one.Why the Eagles will winIf not for a fumble at the 5 yard line, the Eagles beat the Vikings last year. And they humiliated them the year before. The better team doesn’t always win, but they usually do, and the Eagles are the better team. Why the Eagles will lose QB and WR coach Kurt Coupons is 5-3 against the Eagles. I don’t know what we did to upset the gods but it seems that the punishment is to face the quarterback equivalent of, well, this:(I lost my appetite looking at those, I apologize if you did too)And then watch him somehow emerge victorious against the Eagles. But being Kirk Cousins, he has to do it in the most meaningless way possible. Last season he and the Vikings beat the Eagles in a game that was sort of a must win as the Eagles were 2-2 and the Vikings were 1-2-1, but also not a must win because it was in Week 5, when seasons are not won or lost. And lo and behold, the Eagles made the playoffs and the Vikings didn’t. Mid-October against the Eagles? 425 yards, 3 touchdowns en route to a 9-7 season.

On the strength of this achievement, Rolex would eventually become the world’s largest manufacturer Swiss Replica Watch of chronometer-certified wristwatches. The Geneva-based brand perfected the concept of the modern Swiss Replica Watch watch in 1926 by inventing the waterproof “Oyster” case to protect the movement inside and then, in 1931, by Swiss Watch Replicas developing the self-winding “Perpetual” rotor movement. Today, all Rolex Oyster Perpetual Replica swiss watches watches are officially certified chronometers, carrying on the heritage of the pioneering role the brand played in bringing precision to the wristwatch.
