Segunda Equipacion Barcelona 2019 and RB Ryan Torain

Long after the stars have exited the field during the preseason opener between the two teams on Saturday night, Wilson and Painter will trot onto it hoping to provide a glimpse of what could still be.
It's a mantra echoed by Painter. Unlike Wilson, however, Painter has discovered firsthand what it's like to play on Sunday. And it's not always pleasant. Drafted in the sixth round by Indianapolis in 2009, he spent two seasons holding a clipboard while Peyton Manning ran the show. Then Manning went down with a neck injury that kept him out during the entirety of 2011.
Painter initially figured he would compete with David Carr for the right to play behind Eli Manning. Then the Giants drafted Ryan Nassib out of Syracuse. Suddenly,Wholesale Shoes Free Shipping Worldwide, the numbers game became awfully tight.
"That's where I've gotten into trouble in the past," Wilson said. "You can't create stuff when it's not there. You can't go out there and try to throw three touchdowns a game if they're not there."
PITTSBURGH (AP) — John Parker Wilson has no designs on Ben Roethlisberger's job.
"We'll cross that bridge when we get there," Wilson said. "I'm focused on football."
NOTES: New York first-round draft pick OT Justin Pugh (concussion), OT James Brewer (concussion), fifth round pick S Cooper Taylor (hamstring) and RB Ryan Torain (concussion) are not expected to play Saturday. ... Manning will start and get about 15 plays followed by Carr. ... Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said the starters will get around a dozen snaps. Second round draft pick RB Le'Veon Bell will get at least a few plays with the first string.
Namely, impressing coach Mike Tomlin enough to keep him around. It won't be easy. The Steelers signed free agent Bruce Gradkowski to serve as Roethlisberger's backup and drafted Landry Jones out of Oklahoma in the fourth round.
It wasn't a touchdown. It wasn't a turnover either. At the moment, that's enough. It has to be since the coaching staff gives little to no feedback on why they do what they do. It makes trying to count who gets the most snaps a useless exercise.
While the Steelers aren't nearly ready to call Jones the eventual successor to Roethlisberger,Jordan Outlet Australia, he'll be given every chance to succeed for a team that values its draft picks perhaps more than any other franchise in the NFL.

When Kerry Collins fizzled, Painter came on only to go 0-8 as a starter for the worst team in the league,Air Jordan Outlet Online, throwing three more interceptions (nine) than touchdowns (six). The Colts drafted Andrew Luck the following April and Painter was gone. He signed with Baltimore but didn't make it out of training camp. The Giants brought him in a couple days after the 2012 season ended.

Entering his fifth NFL preseason, the 27-year-old Wilson knows the window of opportunity is closing. He has yet to throw a pass in a regular-season game and has spent most of his career bouncing back and forth between the practice squad and the last option on the 53-man roster.
"Anywhere you go there is going to be other quarterbacks," Painter said. "Like I said, competition is not really in (my) mind. I am just trying to get better."
A job, of any variety really, will be just fine for the fourth-string Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback.
"They have a million different reasons for how they do the reps they do and they don't tell you," Wilson said. "When they say 'Hey  JP, get in,' I try to do my job.'"
Wilson's checklist includes making smart decisions and protecting the ball. Through the first two weeks of training camp,Basket Jordan Junior Soldes, that much is clear. During one drill at Saint Vincent College on Friday, Wilson dropped back, found no one open and heaved a pass a good 20 yards over the back of the end zone. The ball rolled down a small incline and onto an adjacent practice field.
Yet he's still not ready to head back to Birmingham, Ala., and begin his post-football life. The former starting quarterback for Alabama knows there will be work back home whenever he steps away. He's not quite there yet.
That part, Wilson allows,Asics Dynaflyte 2 Hombre, is out of his hands. The only thing he can control is what he puts on tape, both in practice and in games. He'd love to make a great impression on Saturday night. Just don't expect him to do it by trying to turn himself into a Roethlisberger clone.
The same goes for Curtis Painter,Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping, who spent eight mostly painful weeks filling in for Peyton Manning in Indianapolis in 2011 and now finds himself simply trying to extend his career somewhere on the New York Giants' depth chart behind Eli Manning.
