field, his ability to stay in the middle of the conversation. And Peters has done nothing to diminis Antworten

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson has played with dozens of cornerbacks over 12 years in the NFL.He admits that none of them has been quite like Marcus Peters.The second-year pro has an uncanny ability to read and react, to know where a pass is going seemingly before the quarterback.Peters had two of the six interceptions of the Jets Ryan Fitzpatrick in a 24-3 win on Sunday , his second straight two-pick game and the highlight of an eight-turnover performance.Its not just Peters ability that stands out, though.Ive played with a lot of really good corners, Johnson said, but they were not as young as Marcus.Yes, the 23-year-old Peters is still a pup in the grand scheme of things. But hes been playing like a bulldog since his first game as a pro, when he picked off Houston quarterback Brian Hoyer.Peters went on to intercept eight passes last regular season, earning the rookie a spot in the Pro Bowl. He added another interception against the Texans in a 30-0 playoff romp last January, a victory that ended nearly two decades of postseason futility for Kansas City.Heck, Peters even picked off a pass in the Pro Bowl.Theyre going to have to stop throwing to his side or he is going to have 100 interceptions, Johnson said with a smile.Hes the ultimate competitor. Hes harder on himself than anybody else. Thats the best thing about him, as a young player -- he doesnt let anything slide.Peters hasnt exactly had a smooth road to stardom.He was kicked off his team at Washington after a series of run-ins with coaches, culminating with a blowup with coach Chris Petersen.The series of events was a big reason he slid midway through the first round of the draft, where Kansas City took him with the 18th overall pick.The Chiefs defended the choice from the moment they made it, insisting they had done due diligence on him.The Chiefs even sent a scout to Peters hometown of Oakland, California, in the days before the draft to make sure they knew everything about him.What they learned was that Peters had grown up. He had matured. He had become a father and wanted to take care of his family. He learned from his mistakes and was ready to move on.Peters has been a model teammate and citizen in Kansas City.Hes also used his newfound stature to help push the movement spearheaded by 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for social equality.It was Peters who raised a gloved fist during the national anthem before the season opener, a homage to John Carlos and Tommie Smith at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.Peters described afterward what life is like in the predominantly black neighborhoods where he grew up, and how he wants to affect change by reaching out to children in the community.But his ability to do that will be determined in part by his ability on the field, his ability to stay in the middle of the conversation. And Peters has done nothing to diminish that in three games.He rallied after a poor start against San Diego to shut down the Chargers receivers in the second half, giving Kansas City a chance to rally for the biggest comeback win in franchise history.The next week, he made Houston rue him once more with two interceptions of Brock Osweiler.On Sunday, Peters was at it again with two interceptions against the Jets.It was all about executing the game plan to a `T, Peters said. We let our pass rush get there, we played underneath, we let our safeties play over the top and we made plays.Sounds easy, right?Peters had the first of the six interceptions, and also the first of four in the fourth quarter that sealed the win. In between, things seemed to get a little contagious.Thats the beauty of it, Peters said. When things are happening like they did, you enjoy it. You embrace the opportunities that you have. You capitalize on them and have fun doing it.Peters is far from flawless. He still boils over when things are going against him. He tends to take too many chances, and gets beaten while trying to bait quarterbacks into making a bad throw.But when he is picking off passes at such a torrid clip, the Chiefs can deal with it.Listen, he has great abilities, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. All the guys know that. They respect the job hes done since hes been here. Hes a good football player, a heady football player.Does he take chances sometimes? Yeah, he does, Reid said. But hes got a short memory, which youve got to have there. He gets right back on it and nothing gets him down.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Custom Dodgers Jersey .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N.

Brisbane have accused the AFL of failing to warn them of the cloud hovering over Craig Lambert as part of the Lachie Whitfield drugs saga before they recruited the now-banned player welfare worker.Lambert has been ousted from the game for 12 months for allowing Greater Western Sydneys Whitfield to stay at his house in an alleged bid to avoid drug testers in 2015.As a result, Whitfield copped a six-month ban while Lamberts former Giants colleague Graeme Allen will also sit out a year for his involvement.Allen left Collingwood last week in the wake of the ban after recently joining as football manager and Lambert wont be allowed any role in the game until 2018.The Lions say theyre not happy about the hole in their off-field operations - a situation they believe is no fault of their own.ddddddddddddMy major disappointment is that we are in this situation, Brisbane chairman Bob Sharpless has told News Corp Australia.GWS had a level of knowledge, the AFL had a level of knowledge but we didnt.At the end of the day, from the checks we did, there was nothing that would have caused us any worries.Brisbane is reportedly working to recruit a new player welfare manager to help oversee the struggling clubs young list.The AFL has been contacted for comment.
