It’s hard to imagine Cardinals coach Bruce Arians turning to Blaine Gabbert in an emergency before he turns to Drew Stanton. Stanton has five years of experience in Arians’ offense; Gabbert has three months of experience under Arians and no regular season games.Gabbert’s signing this offseason is more likely about next year and beyond. He will have to wow Arians in the preseason to beat out Stanton for the backup spot behind Carson Palmer. 37 Comments Share Arizona Cardinals quarterback Blaine Gabbert (7) throws against the Dallas Cowboys during the first half of the Pro Football Hall of Fame NFL preseason game in Canton, Ohio, Thursday, Aug. 3, 2017. (AP Photo/Ron Schwane) Preseason qualifiers aside, it’s hard to imagine Gabbert impressing his coach more than he did Thursday in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. Three months after the seventh-year pro signed a one-year deal for third-string QB money ($775,000), he led the Cardinals to touchdowns on their first two drives against the Dallas Cowboys.Gabbert completed all six pass attempts on those drives, including a perfectly placed ball over the middle to receiver Brittan Golden for a 35-yard, third-down gain on the first drive, a 20-yard, third-down pass to tight end Troy Niklas and a 26-yard completion to tight end Ifeanyi Momah on the second drive to the Dallas 16-yard line. After a pass interference call on the Cowboys, Gabbert capped the second drive with a sneak for a two-point conversion, giving Arizona a 15-0 lead.“Blaine was really efficient, calm in the pocket, guys gave him good protection,” coach Bruce Arians said after Arizona’s 20-18 loss. “I love the start. You want to start fast and get a three-and-out and go back and score again. It couldn’t have been any better. A lot of those throws were second and third reads so he went through his progressions extremely well, especially those balls across the middle. That’s what you want to see. Stand calm in the pocket and play football.” – / 38 Gabbert’s most impressive pass of the day may have come on the Cardinals’ third drive when he completed a back-shoulder throw to receiver Jeremy Ross with a defender tight in coverage on the other shoulder and a defender closing from the opposite side. It was literally the only place Gabbert could have put the ball safely; the kind of tight-window throw that quarterbacks must have the guts to make and the skills to execute in order to succeed in the NFL.“I think the third downs were huge,” Gabbert told Arizona Sports’ Paul Calvisi. “Any time you can keep drives alive — and there were some big third downs — any time you can convert on those your percentage of scoring on those drives increases tremendously. We were executing at a high level there.”About the only gaffe in Gabbert’s night came when he faced pressure up the middle by linebacker Damien Wilson, was sacked and appeared to fumble the ball. The Cardinals recovered and were forced to punt on their third drive. Official stats did not saddle Gabbert with a fumble, however.Gabbert completed his first eight passes for 140 yards. On the Cardinals’ fourth drive, Marquis Bundy and Andre Ellington dropped consecutive pass (the throw to Ellington was slightly low) to force a second consecutive punt. Top Stories Gabbert got an opportunity to practice the two-minute offense late in the half. Starting with 54 seconds on the clock, he completed four of five passes: to Momah for 14 yards, to Bundy for 18 yards, to Ellington for 11 yards and to Bundy for 16 yards. His final pass attempt to get the Cardinals in field goal range fell incomplete when he threw it a bit too far inside to receiver Krishawn Hogan, allowing a pass break-up.Richie Leone missed a 51-yard field goal just before halftime.In all, Gabbert completed 11 of 14 passes for 184 yards with a passer rating of 118.8. He displayed both zip and touch on his passes, athleticism in the pocket, and an understanding of the offense.It was an impressive debut.“Going into my seventh year, it’s all about execution, especially in the preseason,” Gabbert told Calvisi. “There’s going to be a lot of good film to learn off of and the mistakes that we made, we can correct easily and get ready to roll next week.”He went 11/14 for 185 yards & led 2 TD drives. @BlaineGabbert Hall of Fame Game Highlights pic.twitter.com/j3UbTi4Vlx— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) August 4, 2017Follow Craig Morgan on Twitter The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact
Categories: Lucido News 21Mar Rep. Lucido joined by time-change expert for committee hearing State Rep. Peter Lucido, left, speaks in support of his legislation to end the twice-annual time change in Michigan. Time-change expert Scott Yates, right, joined him to testify before the House Commerce and Trade Committee.Rep. Peter Lucido, of Shelby Township, was joined today by time-change expert Scott Yates to speak in support of legislation to eliminate the twice-a-year time changes in Michigan.Lucido, the Shelby Township legislator sponsoring the bill, said the twice-a-year time changes are disruptive, making employees late to work and negatively affecting how students perform at school.“We’ve been flipping our clocks around for nearly 100 years, and it just doesn’t make sense. No one can provide a good reason about why we continue to participate in the time change, but loads of people have very valid reasons about why we shouldn’t,” Lucido said. “Teachers complain that it’s disruptive to students, dairy farmers will tell you their cows produce less milk because of the time change, business owners notice lower productivity in their employees, and study after study has shown that changing the clocks has negative health effects.”Reports have shown increases in heart attacks, seizures, strokes and on-the-job injuries due to time changes. A 2014 study by the American College of Cardiology shows a 25-percent jump in heart attacks occurred the Monday after moving the clocks, compared to other Mondays during the year. Another study from the Journal on Health Medicine showed an increase in hospitalizations due to strokes in the two days following the time changes from 2004 to 2013.“Science shows how bad it is for people to change times,” Yates said. “The statistics are very clear that time change does effect everybody.”Rather than end Daylight Saving Time, however, Lucido is proposing that Michigan eliminate the time change by remaining in Daylight Saving Time all year round.“We’re already in Daylight Saving Time for nine months out of the year, it makes sense for us to just stay there,” Lucido said. “That’s what the majority of people I’ve spoken to all across Michigan want because it gives families more time to spend outside in the evening. This will lead to more active children and help combat childhood obesity.”House Bill 4011 remains under consideration by the House Commerce and Trade Committee.###
Categories: Yaroch News 12Jun Rep. Yaroch plan to protect families and firefighters from PFAS advances A plan sponsored by State Rep. Jeff Yaroch to protect firefighters and communities from the risks associated with certain kinds of firefighting foam was approved by the House Committee on Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation.Yaroch’s two-bill proposal would prohibit the use of firefighting foam containing PFAS for training exercises and would require firefighters to be trained on the proper use and handling of PFAs-containing foam.“Our safety and training standards need to educate the best to anticipate the worst,” Yaroch said.AFFF foam containing PFAS is used by fire departments to suppress petroleum-based fires. While manufacturers voluntarily stopped making PFAS-containing foam in 2002, in exchange for a safer alternative, many facilities still have the older foam on hand.“As science evolves, so does our understanding of the chemicals, like PFAS, we use to contain and control disaster,” Yaroch said. “It is my goal to champion policies that proactively protect firefighters and Michigan families from potential harm.”The proposal, House Bills 4390 and 4391, next moves to the House Ways and Means Committee for consideration.
