Jim Taylor [url=http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-saquon-barkley-jersey]Cheap Saquon Barkley Jersey[/url] , the ferocious Hall of Fame fullback who embodied the Green Bay Packers' unstoppable ground game during the Vince Lombardi era and helped the team win four NFL titles and the first Super Bowl, died Saturday. He was 83.He died unexpectedly at a hospital in his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the team said.Taylor played on the great Packer teams and was the league's MVP in 1962. He scored the first rushing touchdown in Super Bowl history."He was a gritty, classic player on the Lombardi teams and a key figure of those great championship runs," Packers President Mark Murphy said of the player who left his mark on "multiple generations of Packers fans."Taylor was voted into the Hall in 1976. David Baker, president of the Hall, lauded Taylor for not only personifying Lombardi's "run to daylight" philosophy but for living his life as he played game, with "passion, determination and love for all he did."Taylor spent 10 seasons in the NFL after being drafted in the second round out of LSU in 1958. He joined a backfield that featured Paul Hornung and began to thrive when Lombardi took over in 1959.Lombardi devised the Packers' "Sweep," which featured pulling guards Jerry Kramer and Fuzzy Thurston clearing the path for Taylor or Hornung running around the end. The 6-foot, 216-pound Taylor best fulfilled the play's punishing effectiveness, a workhorse always charging forward, dragging would-be tacklers along."He taught me lots of character, and virtues, and principles," Taylor said of Lombardi, with whom he occasionally feuded, in a 2001 interview with the Pro Football Hall of Fame. "He established a caliber of football that he felt like would be championship."In 1960, Taylor ran for 1,101 yards, topping Tony Canadeo's franchise mark of 1,052 yards in 1949. It was just the beginning. He Taylor ran for five straight 1,000-yard seasons from 1960-64 and led the Packers seven consecutive times in rushing.In 1961, Taylor ran for 1,307 yards and scored an NFL-best 15 touchdowns as the Packers rolled to a 37-0 victory over the Giants in Green Bay for Lombardi's first title.The next year would be Taylor's finest. He ran for 1 [url=http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-odell-beckham-jr-jersey]Cheap Odell Beckham Jr Jersey[/url] ,474 yards and 19 TDs in 14 games, and scored the only touchdown in the Packers' 16-7 victory over the New York Giants for the second of his four titles.Taylor said that season, when Green Bay finished 13-1 in the regular season, stood out for him."Being voted the MVP of the league in 1962 is something that I look back and cherish," Taylor said. "I felt like I accomplished and achieved my goal."The 1962 title game pitted the Packers and the Giants, this time in New York, and was played in 40 mph winds and 13-degree temperatures at Yankee Stadium.Taylor was at his toughest, picking up 85 yards on 31 carries against the vaunted Giants defense featuring linebacker Sam Huff. Taylor sustained a gash to his elbow that required seven stitches at halftime and cut his tongue during the game."If Taylor went up to get a program, Huff was supposed to hit him. Wherever Taylor went, Huff went with him," Kramer told The Associated Press in 2008. "I remember sitting next to Jimmy on the way home and he had his topcoat on. He never took it off. He had it over his shoulder and the guy was shivering almost all the way home. He just got the hell beat out of him that day."That game was one of several that helped launch pro football into the television era, and Taylor's contributions to the Packers endured.Taylor, also a member of the 1965 title team, finished his Packers career after the 1966 season as the franchise's all-time leading rusher and held single-season marks for yards and TDs. He also scored the Super Bowl's first rushing touchdown when the Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in the inaugural championship game between the NFL and AFL.But his yardage tailed off sharply in 1966 and he was openly resentful of the high salaries paid to newcomers Donny Anderson and Jim Grabowski. Taylor played his final season with the expansion New Orleans Saints.His 1,474-yard mark from 1962 stood for 41 years until Ahman Green broke it in 2003. Green went on to break the franchise's all-time rushing mark in 2009.In college, Taylor stayed home to attend LSU, where he lettered in the 1956 and 1957 seasons. He was a first-team All-American during his second season, when he also became teammates with Billy Cannon, who died last May. Taylor led Southeastern Conference in scoring with 59 points in 1956."With the ball under his arm, Jimmy Taylor is the finest player I have ever seen," then-LSU coach Paul Dietzel said.Taylor retired to Baton Rouge and remained close to the LSU football program. He was inducted in the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in 1974.He was a familiar presence at LSU football and basketball games. Athletic director Joe Alleva called Taylor the "ultimate LSU guy" who "bled purple and gold as well as Green Bay green and gold."Taylor was often compared to his contemporary, Cleveland's Jim Brown, but Lombardi had different views on two of the most punishing running backs in the league at the time."Jim Brown will give you that leg (to tackle) and then take it away from you," Lombardi said. "Jim Taylor will give it to you and then ram it through your chest."AP Sports Writer Brett Martel in Baton Rouge contributed to this report.College football Week 2: Games, players, to watch Happy Saturday everyone [url=http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-patrick-omameh-jersey]http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-patrick-omameh-jersey[/url] , and welcome to Week 2 of the college football season! We have a nice slate of games today, including some early season match-ups between ranked opponents, as well as one game that we know the New York Giants will be scouting. So without further ado, let’s get to the games!UCLA at (6) Oklahoma FOX, 1 p.m. Perhaps unsurprisingly, most of the NFL talent in this game will be on the Oklahoma side of things. First and foremost is running back Rodney Anderson. The Giants likely won’t be interested in drafting a running back highly, but Anderson is a lot of fun to watch. Blocking for him will be tackle Bobby Evans and guard Ben Powers. In contrast to the massively massive Orlando Brown Jr., Evans is a relatively svelte offensive tackle at 6-foot-5, 300 pounds. But despite being “undersized,” Evans plays with surprising power, good leverage, and a nasty streak, routinely putting defenders on skates in the run game. Evans is a powerfully built center at 6-4, 310 pounds, but shows good movement skills as a pulling lineman. He needs to improve his power at the point of contact when pulling, but he has the tools to do so. Finally we get to wide receiver Marquise Brown. If a skill position player is nicknamed “Hollywood,” you know they bring something special on the field, and “Hollywood” Brown might be the scariest big-play threat in the nation. Slightly built at 5-10, 160 pounds, Brown has an elite blend of lateral agility, explosive acceleration, and long speed. He isn’t going to scare anyone stepping off the bus, but defensive coordinators dread seeing him with the ball in his hands and a sliver of daylight.(3) Georgia at (24) South CarolinaCBS, 3:30 p.m.Georgia cornerback Deandre Baker is probably the top prospect in this game, and is one of the top prospects in the nation. Consistently listed in early big boards as a one of the top cornerback prospects, Baker isn’t a physical specimen at 5-11 [url=http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-aldrick-rosas-jersey]Aldrick Rosas Jersey[/url] , 185 pounds. Instead of physically overwhelming receivers, Baker already shows polished technique and a physical game which belies his average frame. He also has the versatility to be moved all around the secondary, from the outside to the slot, and even to safety. On the other side of the ball is Georgia WR Terry Godwin. Godwin has been a steady presence for QB Jake Fromm, with a few highlight reel catches. He will be expected to build on those big moments and step up for a Georgia offense that lost its two biggest threats in Nick Chubb and Sony Michel to the 2018 draft.South Carolina also features a pair of wideouts which have scouts’ attention. First up is Deebo Sameul who lost most of his 2017 campaign to a broken leg, but is expected to do big things in 2018. He is already being considered one of the top receiving prospects in the upcoming draft. Like former Giants’ receiver Hakeem Nicks, Samuel has “good, but not great” size, but fights through coverage and uses strong hands to play bigger than his listed 6-feet, 210 pounds. He will need to polish his route running and hone his craft as a receiver, and scouts are looking forward to seeing if he can take the next step.Bryan Edwards, on the other hand is a big receiver (6’-3 220), and plays like it. Edwards hearkens back to former USC receiver Alshon Jeffery with the size, strength, and body control to be a true “X” receiver in the NFL and routinely reel in spectacular catches. Like many big receivers, Edwards doesn’t have “explosive” speed, but rather “build up” speed down the field. It might make separating from athletic defensive backs in press-man coverage difficult, but his size and body control will be assets in being open even when he is covered.Pittsburgh vs. (13) Penn StateABC, 8 p.m. This isn’t the game fans will likely be watching unless they have a rooting interest. However, I bring it up because Chase Goodbread of the NFL Network is reporting that the Giants are one of five teams confirmed to be scouting it. In all likelihood, the team is scouting a pair of Penn State players. The first is center Connor McGovern, who has been a starter since joining the team as a true freshman. McGovern isn’t a particularly massive or athletic lineman, but he has a high football IQ and good short-area quickness. He carries his weight well, listed at 6-4, 310 pounds (though he looks lighter than that). His frame is versatile and if he might have a future as either a guard or a center at the next level. They could also have their eye on wide receiver Juwan Johnson, who Penn State is expecting to step up and replace the talent lost to the 2018 NFL draft. Johnson is a massive receiver [url=http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-patrick-omameh-jersey]Youth Patrick Omameh Jersey[/url] , listed at roughly 6-4, 230 pounds, and if he is able to take a step forward and consistently use his size and massive catch radius to their fullest potential, he could hear his name called early in the draft.(17) USC at (10) StanfordFOX, 8:30 p.m.There will be a number of future NFL players on the field in this game, as you should expect from these schools.From the Giants’ perspective, we should be watching EDGE Porter Gustin on the USC side of things. The 6-5, 260-pound outside linebacker is a still developing as a player and coming off of an injury, but he is renowned for his work ethic. He uses his length well, is an active hand fighter, shows good awareness, and a great motor. The Giants could also be interested in safety Marvell Tell III and cornerback Iman Marshall. Both DBs are long and well built, fitting in to the physical mold that James Bettcher has preferred in the past. On the Stanford side of things, all eyes will be on RB Bryce Love. Love was surprisingly quiet in their season opener, but he remains an exciting player and high on many Heisman watch lists. For the Giants’ purposes, keep an eye on the offensive line in front of him. Stanford uses “Pro” concepts in their offense, which helps to cut down the learning curve at the next level. Nate Herbig, nicknamed “Big Island” by his teammates, is a wide-bodied lineman at 6-3, 330 pounds but shows impressive feet for a big lineman. He will likely be a guard at the next level, but his strength and movement skills should give him scheme versatility. Next is center Jesse Burkett. Like McGovern, Burkett isn’t a massive lineman, listed at 6-4, 300 pounds. He gets the job done with good athleticism and football IQ to understand and establish leverage when opening holes or to get to the second level and pick on linebackers.
