Paul Hofer Jersey . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. http://www.custom49ersjersey.com/custom-wilbur-jackson-jersey-large-2048d.html .C. -- Rodney Hood connected from all over the court while freshman Jabari Parker was busy swatting shots and scoring in transition. Azeez Al-Shaair Jersey . Aduriz headed home Markel Susaetas cross in the sixth minute to open the scoring at San Mames Stadium. He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat. Kevin Greene Jersey . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. Now that Madden NFL 17 is officially released, lets run through everything you need to know about this years version of the video game, including the top rookies, the fastest players, the best teams and more.PLAYERSThe 99 ClubRob Gronkowski, TE, Patriots Luke Kuechly, LB, Panthers Von Miller, OLB, Broncos J.J. Watt, DE, TexansBiggest takeaway:?No player on this list helped his Madden stock in a shorter time period than Miller. He disrupted just 1.9 percent of opposing quarterbacks dropbacks in the regular season, the second-lowest rate of his career. But the playoffs were a different story (4.7 percent), catapulting Miller into Maddens 99 club.Biggest surprise:?Steelers WR?Antonio Brown?has been the single most unstoppable offensive player of the past two seasons -- 132.5 catches, 1,766 receiving yards and 11.5 TDs on average. And yet, Brown landed a 97 Madden rating for the second consecutive year.Best rookies1. Jalen Ramsey, CB, Jaguars (82) 2. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Cowboys (80) T-3. Robert Aguayo, K, Buccaneers (79) T-3. Joey Bosa, DE, Chargers (79) T-3. Ronnie Stanley, LT, Ravens (79)Biggest takeaway: Elliott will get more opportunities than any rookie to exceed his rating, which is tied for 31st among all RBs. Running behind the NFLs best offensive line, Elliott has a real chance to finish in the top five in rushing.?Biggest surprise: Texans speedy WR?Will Fuller?is getting rave reviews in training camp, but he didnt even crack the top-10 rookies. Houstons lack of a clear-cut No. 2 receiver could play in Fullers favor as a rookie. ?Best awareness ratingT-1. Tom Brady, QB, Patriots (99) T-1. Antonio Brown, WR, Steelers (99) T-3. Drew Brees, QB, Saints (98) T-3. Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Cardinals (98) T-3. Luke Kuechly, LB, Panthers (98)Biggest takeaway: Just two defenders (Kuechly and Derrick Johnson) had an awareness rating of 95 or higher, compared to 12 offensive players. Kuechly fits right in among this crew: He makes a habit of jumping routes and shooting gaps based on pre-snap reads.?Biggest surprise: Aaron Rodgers?91 awareness rating sounds high, but Brady, Brees, Carson Palmer (94) and Philip Rivers (94) ranked ahead of him among quarterbacks. Watch this video and tell me Rodgers doesnt deserve to be in that group.?Best speed ratingT-1. Brandin Cooks, WR, Saints (96) T-1. Phillip Dorsett, WR, Colts (96) T-1. Jakeem Grant, WR, Dolphins (96) T-1. Corey Grant, RB, Jaguars (96) T-1. J.J. Nelson, WR, Cardinals (96)Biggest takeaway: Pure speed doesnt always translate to on-field success. The average overall Madden rating of the five players above is 69.4, with Cooks (82) being the most established. The Saints WR had 1,138 yards and 9 TDs last season.Biggest surprise: Panthers WR?Ted Ginn Jr.?ran past just about every secondary he played against last season, but mustered only a 92 speed rating in Madden NFL 17. That sound you hear is Ginn challenging the 31 receivers rated faster than him to a foot race.Best agility ratingT-1. Tavon Austin, WR, Rams (98) T-1. Antonio Brown, WR, Steelers (98) T-1. LeSean McCoy, RB, Bills (98)Biggest takeaway:?McCoy was banged up last season, but when healthy, Shady is still as shifty as ever. Just check out how easily he shakes Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick on this pplay.ddddddddddddBiggest surprise: Jerick McKinnon and Denard Robinson?(96) both had a better agility rating than Steelers RB?LeVeon Bell (95). Lets poll defenders and see who they think is more terrifying in the open field.Best strength ratingT-1. Stephen Paea, DE, Redskins (98) T-1. Ndamukong Suh, DT, Dolphins (98) T-3. Russell Bodine, C, Bengals (97) T-3. Mike Iupati, G, Cardinals (97) T-3. Dontari Poe, DT, Chiefs (97) T-3. Jared Veldheer, T, Cardinals (97) T-3. J.J. Watt, DE, Texans (97)Biggest takeaway:?Suh makes $3 million more annually?and?has a better strength rating?than Watt??How does J.J. sleep at night? (Answer: With his three Defensive Player of the Year awards snuggled close.) In all seriousness, how much would you pay to watch these two have a bench-pressing contest? Count me in for $20.Biggest surprise: Aaron Donald?--?who?put up 35 reps on the bench press at the 2014 NFL combine and beasts through double-teams with regularity -- could muster only a 94 strength rating. Thats tied for 18th overall. Something aint right.TEAMSBest offenses1. Pittsburgh Steelers (93) T-2. Carolina Panthers (91) T-2. Arizona Cardinals (91)Biggest takeaway: Most NFL pundits would agree that the Steelers have the widest array of offensive weapons -- when at full strength. The problem? The lethal combination of QB Ben Roethlisberger, WR Antonio Brown, RB LeVeon Bell and WR Martavis Bryant has played just 13 percent of the Steelers offensive snaps together the past two seasons. That number will be at 0 percent in 2016 with Bryant slated to miss the entire season because of another suspension.Biggest surprise:?The Oakland Raiders -- the same team that ranked 23rd in points per games from Weeks 10-17 (18.3) -- are tied for fourth in Maddens offense ratings.?Best defenses1. Kansas City Chiefs (93) T-2. Denver Broncos (91) T-2. New England Patriots (91)Biggest takeaway: The Chiefs defense finished No. 2 in Football Outsiders DVOA metric?last season -- and that was with OLB Justin Houston (97 overall rating) missing all or most of the final six games. So Kansas City showed enough to be one of the top-three defenses, but ...Biggest surprise:?How didnt the Broncos finish with the best rating?!? When you hold Tom Brady and Cam Newton to a collective Total QBR of 18.9 in the two biggest games of the season, you should probably be the No. 1 defense the next season. Just sayin.?Best overall teamsT-1. Carolina Panthers (87) T-1. New England Patriots (87) T-3. Green Bay Packers (85) T-3. Kansas City Chiefs (85) T-3. Pittsburgh Steelers (85) T-3. Seattle Seahawks (85)Biggest takeaway:?Regression, what regression? Madden has high hopes for the Panthers after they went 15-1 in the 2015 regular season. If Carolina ends up getting the NFCs No. 1 seed again, you have to think QB Cam Newtons overall rating (94) will be on the rise in Madden NFL 18.Biggest surprise: The Dallas Cowboys -- who are banking on brittle QB Tony Romo staying healthy for 16 games -- have the same rating as the Arizona Cardinals (84). Yes, the same Cardinals who went 13-3 last season and made it to the NFC Championship Game. ' ' '
