Emmanuel Ogbah Solid in NFL Debut

first_imgBrowns second-round pass-rusher Emmanuel Ogbah has been a bright spot tonight.— Marc Sessler (@MarcSesslerNFL) August 13, 2016 Former Oklahoma State defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah played in his first NFL game last night in the Cleveland Browns’ 17-11 loss to the Green Bay Packers.Ogbah had a solid performance, racking up six tackles, including two tackles for loss and a sack.Plenty of people on Twitter only had good things to say about the second-round pick:Emmanuel Ogbah looking surprisingly stout at 5-tech despite being vastly undersized.— Tim A. Miller (@Bumblyjack) August 13, 2016 Congrats to @EmanOgbah for his NFL preseason debut with 6 solo tackles and a trademark sack. #[email protected]— Robert Allen (@RAllenGoPokes) August 13, 2016Ogbah’s lone sack would prove to be his biggest highlight of the night. His motor was on display with this hit on the quarterback outside the pocket:You’ll have to view this at least 3 times to drink how surreal this pursuit was by Emmanuel Ogbah. Wow. pic.twitter.com/kz2gBvt3Jo— R.C. Fischer (@FFMetrics) August 13, 2016Ogbah recently made the change from a 3-4 outside linebacker back to a defensive end. With defensive lineman Desmond Bryant’s injury and Armonty Bryant’s four-game suspension, Ogbah will likely see more playing time than expected in his new-but-not-really-new position.The Browns will play in their preseason home opener Thursday, Aug. 18 against the Atlanta Falcons.center_img While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Notes On Mike Gundy’s West Virginia Press Conference

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Coach Gundy gets us ready for West Virginia and talks a bit about Homecoming, protecting QB1, McCleskey, the laterals, Jamelle Holieway and cheesesteak!Opening Remarks• “I guess I can start with questions. I don’t know as I need to talk about the last game any. I think everybody kind of understands where we’re at in that game.”• “We had a good workout last night, and we’re looking forward to the game with West Virginia.”Previewing Homecoming Against the ‘Eers• Is it going to be tough to get the team to focus because of everything that happened on Homecoming last year? “Honestly, I hadn’t thought about that side of it. I guess I’d heard some talk about trying to bring some of the people back that were involved. I would say that it would be a very emotional time for some of the fans and the people that affected them.”According to this, they’ll be honored at the parade.• “I think it’s important to them (the players); but, in the end, they go to school, they play ball, they have their part of the social life. I’d say they should be able to stay focused – especially when you bring a team in that’s undefeated and ranked as high as West Virginia is now, they should be able to stay focused.”• “For us, what I’ve been told is everything will go on as normal. There’s a lot of history and tradition here with our Homecoming, and we certainly want to keep that part of the day rolling.”• What about their defense? “I think up to now they’re playing as good as anybody in the conference and may be comparable to top ten teams in the country defensively. They tackle well, in my opinion…and they play aggressive.”• In particular, the 3-3-5 alignment they use defensively: “Well it’s a little unique. You have to recruit to that style of play.”• Does Dana all the sudden care about defense? “I’m not sure. He’s probably at a point now where he is very involved offensively. He’s taken the approach that he’s going to hire a head coach on defense and that guy’s gonna be in charge.”• “This year, they’re starting seven seniors and they have a pretty good feel for what they’re doing. Their quarterback has a good feel for what they’re wanting on offense. They have seven starters on offense and seven starters on defense that are seniors, so they have a mature football team.”On the Offense• This was a silly question, in my opinion – outsider lookin’ in. Coach was asked about how concerned they are about protecting Mason: “We’re concerned about protecting him every week. We’re certainly trying to do the best we can to keep him taking hits.”• “We had a couple missed assignments and we had a technique issue that caused, or were the reason for three sacks on Saturday.” Then later: “We had one MA (missed assignment) and one technique issue. Two of the sacks were MAs on the offensive line, and one technique issue. One running back technique and one running back missed assignment. It’s five. It’s three too many if you throw it forty times.”• Coach was asked about Marcel Ateman’s status: “He is supposed to start making cuts this week.” Might you just redshirt him? “We might play him. He ran last week. We just have to see where he’s at.”• What’s the biggest improvement in McCleskey? “Just maturity – just a year into it. Last year he was a freshman, now he’s more of a veteran player. He understands the speed of the game.”• Does having his Dad an ex-NFL player help him? “Just the ‘gym rat’ concept, and the environment he’s raised in. Obviously he’s gifted genetically; but, he’s worked on his speed and hands throughout his career. And, I’m guessing his Dad has shared things with him to help prepare him to play at a high level. He’s a very intelligent young man – he gets it and all the big picture around him doesn’t really affect him much.”• He’s getting some of the same reviews as the middle son in your house is right now. “Well, he’s not near as good as Jalen, I can tell you that. But, we’re trying to coach him, that’s for sure.”• How would you compare Justice to a month ago? “Same as McCleskey – just experience. The more that he’s in the speed of the game, he learns to play to that level. And the hits – the hits he’s taking now are different than the ones he took in high school.” How is he improving in pass protection? “He’s going to make some mistakes, but it’s okay. He’s gonna get the ball and he’s gonna be in there on pass plays and we have to live with those mistakes.” Sounds like Coach is all in on No. 27.• Chris Carson looks like he has fresh legs. “He does – he’s got fresh legs. I was excited about him coming back and I was excited for him. When he came back this week, he picked up where he left off. There was energy, he was leaping, making moves, staying on his feet, catching the ball. So, it’s nice to have those two guys healthy to where we can offset some of the hits one or the other would take. And then, we’re getting some plays from Rennie and there’s things Junior can do at times.”• Are you going to be looking for other ways to get Washington the ball? “It changes each week based on the structure. Defenses have the choice, in most cases, who gets the ball on offense. It’s not like it was 20-25 years ago. Now, defenses can take away a certain part of the game, and offenses have to be able to adjust accordingly.”• Do you expect to see more of this type defense on Washington? “Sure. We’ve had that before. They did that with Blackmon, with Dez. It’s a simple game – it’s math – if they’re going to defend then you’re going to have to be able to run the ball. If you can’t run the ball it makes for a long day.” That’s it – ‘favorite old players reference’…BINGO!!On the Lateral-Fest and Defense in General• Is this something you guys practice? “Jordan (Sterns) had a good game – a real good game. They practice laterals in PAT/Field Goal block and they’ve carried over to defense. I’m not sure if that was the best time for those guys to start lateraling, but they work on it and so now they’re kind of into that side of it.”• “If they’re in the open field and it’s clear, I don’t have a problem with it. One, it can turn into a big play for us and two, it makes for exciting football. But, if they’re in a crowd, I’d prefer they take care of the football and make sure we possess it at the end of that play.”• Is Vincent Taylor more Tommie Frazier or Jamelle Holieway? “I started earlier with Holieway. I saw him more. But, he’s (Taylor) a talented guy and, you know, he’s got some decent skills. Who would’ve thought coming into the season that he’d have made two option pitches?”• How athletic is he for a defensive tackle? “Well, he’s flexible in his hips and he has good eye-hand coordination. Most of those guys do – Vili, Mote, Vincent – those guys are pretty flexible for their size.”• “They’ve gotten into it based on our PAT/Field goal black, and we’ve talked to them about it – there’s no reason to go down on a PAT/Field goal black and so they carried it over into that. As a coach, that’s one of those situations where you don’t want to take their stinger away from them, but you also want to play as smart a football as possible.” Their “stinger”?Special TeamsØ You seem to be playing a lot of starters: “On kickoffs? We’ve rolled a few guys in and out of there. Special teams, over the last couple years, at our level, has changed considerably. Opportunities, based on the abilities of kickers to kick the ball through the end zone, and also punters. You don’t get as many opportunities. So, for us, we put a few more starters on units where the other team may get an opportunity, which could be kickoff return.”• Are you happy with Ammendola? “He should improve. This is his first year. The good news is he has the power and the ability to be a good kicker. So, we’re starting out with a good product and as he matures he should grow and get better.” Why did he get a nickname? “Well, there’s two things. One, I can’t pronounce his last name; and two, he’s from Philadelphia. I give him a hard time. You know I used to recruit there when I was at Maryland so I used to eat at Pat’s Cheesesteaks, and Geno’s and all that. So I give him a hard time about it.”On the 100th Win• Is this a motivating factor for your team? “I don’t think so. These guys just live in a different world. You could ask them and I’d bet over half of them wouldn’t know.”• “I’m more concerned with them focusing on what they can do to have an impact on the game, more so than that side of it. I think that’s a nice mark for Oklahoma State football and for all of us in general. But, they need to get tuned in to West Virginia.”Random Wrap-up Thoughts• This was great! Coach was asked if this game can change your season, after two losses – “One loss. That’s right…one loss. I think they know (the importance of this game). I don’t know where West Virginia’s ranked, but I’m sure it’s pretty high – they’re undefeated. I told them Sunday night, ‘This is going to build and take care of itself. If I have to get up here at forty-nine years old and motivate you to play in this game, then I’ve got the wrong guys sitting in the team room.”• “I think the stage and the game itself should motivate them enough to want to prepare well and to play really hard. And if not – they’re playing a really good football team – if they don’t prepare well and take care of the football and they’re not sound in special teams and they allow big plays, then they put themselves in a situation to get beat.”last_img read more

Cowboys In Tears As Dez Bryant Pays Tribute to Late Father With Big TD In Pittsburgh

first_imgDallas quarterback Dak Prescott, who lost his mother to colon cancer in 2013, said in the post-game press conference that the two found solace in each other’s experiences. “I think the game gives him peace,” Prescott told reporters. “We kinda shared this morning about things I’ve been through and kinda let him know, I mean, this game brings me peace and I use it that way . . . [I told him] your father, he’s watching you, he’s got the best seat in the house, and he went out there and I told him to honor him today and Dez did exactly that, had a great night.”“It was emotional,” added Cole Beasley to the Dallas Morning News. “There were a lot of guys with tears in here. We definitely feel for him. And all the stuff he’s been through in his life, he’s still persevering every day. It just shows who he is. He’s been fighting through stuff all his life. No matter what happens to him, he’s going to keep grinding.”Bryant finished the day with six receptions for a season-high 116 yards and a touchdown. He was awarded the game ball in the locker room by head coach Jason Garrett and the two exchanged an emotional embraceWatch Coach Garrett present @DezBryant with the game ball after the win against the Steelers. #FootballIsFamily?: https://t.co/lnXpNzCpXM pic.twitter.com/1GChOGdaLC— Dallas Cowboys (@dallascowboys) November 14, 2016 Dallas wide receiver Dez Bryant played with a heavy heart in the Cowboys’ 35-30 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night. Bryant’s father, MacArthur Hatton, passed away from an undisclosed illness Saturday, but Bryant decided to still play. The former Oklahoma State Cowboy saw plenty of targets, but his biggest catch came on a 50-yard touchdown late in the third quarter.Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News set the scene.Bryant paused for a second in the back of the end zone, pointed to the sky and then blew a kiss. Tears started to flow as he fell to his knees. Several teammates consoled him.After the game, he posted a heartfelt message on his Instagram page for his late father.“Daddy I know GOD got you..” wrote Bryant. “I’m hurt but I refuse to ask why….you always wanted me to make sure things are good with the family especially my brothers…I honestly don’t know a man who walked this earth stronger than you…daddy I’m happy to take the torch…rip daddy.”center_img While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

How 2017 Sets Up To Be One of The Best Ever For Oklahoma State

first_imgAs the last piece of confetti settled to the Alamodome turf late Thursday night and celebrations started to move elsewhere, Mike Gundy was already reflecting on his fifth 10-win season.“A win like this doesn’t guarantee anything,” Gundy said, “but it certainly means a lot for the seniors, the organization and the people that put a lot of time and effort into success.”The disappointments and frustrations of Bedlam seem like a distant memory (or at least an accepted fact) and the Cowboys get to ride off on a good note for the first time in two years. And in one way, for the first time in six.In 2014, when Oklahoma State beat Washington in the Cactus Bowl, they were just glad to be there. The lowest year in several ended with a true freshman quarterback pulling out a Bedlam win that got them the chance to be there in the first place.This year’s Alamo Bowl win was an example of what that QB was capable of. Optimism for next year is not simply, “how good can he be?” but “how far can he take us?”“I’m very excited about coming back for my senior year. It’s a chance to finish what we started this season and another great opportunity to play at Oklahoma State.”That quote is almost six years old. It’s from Brandon Weeden as he and Justin Blackmon announced they would be returning for the 2011 season.While the announcement by Rudolph and Washington was much more subdued (amounting to an 18-second video tweeted out by OSU) the message is the same, especially in terms of what it means to Oklahoma State.In 2010, the Cowboys finished their season with another Alamo Bowl win against a Pac 12 school in Arizona, capping off an 11-2 season. Justin Blackmon was the Biletnikoff winner (his first one) and Brandon Weeden definitely had the numbers to back up a leap to the NFL (4,277 yards and 34 touchdowns).But the duo stuck it out and made history for themselves and Oklahoma State the next year. Could #Rudolph2Washington make a similar run?Next season, the Cowboys get their “easy” home schedule. With the currently constructed Big 12, you can predict home and away opponents by odd and even years. This upcoming odd year will bring Oklahoma, TCU, Baylor and Kansas State. Baylor has slipped in the conference pecking order, but Kansas State may be on an uptick.In 2017 the Cowboys figure to take another step in reclaiming a “Tailback-U” moniker that’s slipped away over the last four years. Justice Hill is a stud and has three (!) more years of eligibility. And let’s not forget Jeff Carr who figures to compete for snaps in the new-look backfield. Then you have incoming potential stars like Chuba Hubbard and JD King. All will be competing for playing time.“We should be more consistent in how we block,” said Gundy. “We have good backs. Obviously 27 is coming back. We’ve got young guys redshirting in our program that we like.”In 2010, Kendall Hunter was a senior but was backed up by freshmen Joseph Randle and Jeremy Smith. In 2011, Randle rushed for 1,216 yards and 24 touchdowns as a sophomore. Justice Hill set the freshman rushing record at OSU with 1,142 yards. It’s not inconceivable to imagine he and at least on of the those other guys putting up huge numbers on the ground.Another big difference in the 2011 team and the last few has been the process of rebuilding an offensive line almost from scratch. It was supposed to take about three years (from 2014) and it definitely has. But OSU is finally getting there.“I think we can have up to eight linemen next year that can play,” Gundy said. “I would love to play a first group, then after the fourth series put another group in and play. We may be able to do that. We’ll see.”Of course, the Cowboys will have enough stars at wide receiver to start for three Big 12 teams. I’m only partly kidding. Gundy recognizes his embarrassment of riches at wide-out.“We’re very fortunate to have a really quality group of mature receivers that have had a considerable amount of experience playing in big games, with the addition of Ateman coming back. Really, we lose Seales and Austin Hays. Stoner was able to play for us some this year until he hurt his foot. We’ll get him back. Then we’ve got some young players that we feel really good about.”“I think it just sets us up to do greater things,” said Washington after the game. “We have Marcell and all of our weapons back. I’m looking forward to coming out next year and doing the same thing, hopefully ending with a great outcome.”On the defensive side, the Cowboys will lose a lot. Vincent Taylor, Mote Maile’, Jordan Sterns, Jordan Burton, Ashton Lampkin, Devante Averette and others have all played their last games as Cowboys.To put it into perspective, the outgoing players accounted for 419 tackles out of the 921 that were credited this season. That’s a huge loss for Glenn Spencer. The burden will fall to the likes of Chad Whitener, Ramon Richards and Tre Flowers to become the playmakers on defense.But that 2011 defense was young as well. Only four seniors played meaningful reps that season but still led the nation in turnover margin, largely due to takeaways. Will next year’s team have the same kind of talent as 2011? That’s yet to be seen. In 2011, a sophomore named Justin Gilbert made a name for himself.The Cowboys were able to end the season on a good note. How much does that really carry over into the spring? I’m not sure. But that’s not really the point anyway.Oklahoma State gets another year with Mason Rudolph and James Washington and finally has figured out their running game. If a young defense can get up to speed quickly enough, we could be in for a pretty special year. While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Joseph Randle Charged With Assault While in Jail

It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways. Joseph Randle unfortunately cannot stay out of the news.On Wednesday, The Wichita Eagle reported that the former Oklahoma State running back had appeared in a Sedgwick County courtroom being charged with one count of aggravated battery and one count of disorderly conduct stemming from an incident with another inmate.According the article, Randle told the judge that he was simply running away from the other inmate and was trying to defend himself. This according to the Wichita Eagle.“The state is charging me for running from somebody?” Randle asked. “The state is charging you with aggravated battery and disorderly conduct,” the judge said.“For getting punched in the face,” Randle said, his voice trailing off.“I don’t know what the facts of the case are, sir,” Goering replied. “I’m just here to tell you what you’re being charged with, what your court date is and what your bond is.”Randle who was recently the subject of a “True Crime” series by Sports Illustrated has been incarcerated since June of 2016, this latest charge making his fifth pending criminal charge, including allegedly hitting someone with his car and threatening a law enforcement officer.

Oklahoma State Spring Football Game Roster, Format Details Announced

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future.

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Oklahoma State released the roster for Saturday’s spring game on Friday morning. There weren’t a lot of surprises but there are a few things to note.As in the past, the team will be split up into an orange team and a black team. The game will resemble a normal college football game, with a couple of tweaks.The quarters will be 10 minutes instead of 12 each. There will be two traditonal kickoffs, one to start each half. After each score, the offense will just start at their own 25-yard line. There will be punts but no returns. Each return will be an automatic fair catch.Punts, field goals and PAT’s will be played as normal without a live rush. It’s an exhibition game. We don’t want our the nation’s only punter in the Heisman conversation getting hurt.Here’s some of the notable spots for each team. Mason Rudolph, Taylor Cornelius and Josh Green will handle the quarterback duties for the orange team. The black team will field John Kolar, Keondre Wudtee and Jelani Woods.QB1 and the Oil Baron, Cornelius, will get to throw to the likes of James Washington, Jalen McCleskey, Chris Lacy, Tyrell Alexander. Across the field, we may get to see the tandem of the future as Wudtee and Woods get to throw to Tyron Johnson as well as Marcell Ateman and others on the black team.Who’s out?Several players have been ruled out including Justice Hill, who is still rehabbing from off-season shoulder surgery. Dillon Stoner is out. So are offensive linemen Zachary Crabtree, Larry Williams, Deonte Noel, Jacob Clark and Minnesota transfer Tyler Moore — the latter of which will not be eligible this fall due to NCAA transfer rules. The defense will be without linemen Tralund Webber and Vili Leveni and linebacker Brian Ciszewski.last_img read more
