Michael Badgley was not the kicker that everyone was talking about when Sunday’s games came to an end and that’s a good thing for the Chargers.While they never had a game-winning field goal try clang off an upright Jonah Williams Jersey , the Chargers have some history with kicking woes in big postseason spots and that makes it easy to appreciate the job that Badgley did in Sunday’s 23-17 win over the Ravens. The rookie hit 5-of-6 field goal attempts to continue the strong run that began when he replaced Caleb Sturgis during the regular season and running back Melvin Gordon said he’s “happy that we have somebody here that we can count on.”“It’s the playoffs,” Badgley said, via ESPN.com. “During the regular season, every point matters. But in the playoffs they matter even more. With the team we’ve got Elgton Jenkins Jersey , as long as I can go out there and get my side of the job done, we’re definitely a threat, so it’s awesome.”Badgley has now made 20-of-22 field goals and 27-of-28 extra points over the regular season and playoffs, which is a welcome change from past Chargers kickers and a reason for confidence if there’s a need to turn to Badgley in a big spot in New England next weekend. When it comes to handicapping the field of candidates to replace Mike Maccagnan as general manager of the New York Jets http://www.packerscheapshoponline.com/cheap-authentic-jace-sternberger-jersey , the general consensus has been it’s Joe Douglas and everybody else.While Douglas, the Vice President of Player Personnel for the Philadelphia Eagles, has interviewed for the job and has strong ties with head coach Adam Gase, the rush to give him the job may be a bit premature.Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network said Tuesday that Seattle Seahawks Co-Director of Player Personnel Scott Fitterer made a strong impression on the Jets during his interview for the job on Friday.“The presumptive favorite is Joe Douglas from the Philadelphia Eagles Dexter Williams Jersey ,” Rapoport said. “And it has been pretty clear from the beginning that at the least he would have a very good shot at this based on his relationship with Adam Gase and based on his prowess in the front office with the Eagles. But I would add one thing, do not discount Scott Fitterer from the Seahawks. I know everyone assumes it’s going to be Joe Douglas’ job and it may be, but from what I am told, Fitterer was incredibly impressive. They like his body of work Nick Bosa Jersey , they like him as a guy, which everyone around the league seems to. He also is expected to be in the mix at the end likely with Joe Douglas for the Jets.”Mike Garafolo of the network added there has been “buzz” regarding Fitterer in recent days.Fitterer has worked for the Seahawks since 2001 and currently serves as Seattle’s co-director of player personnel alongside Trent Kirchner, who has also been a candidate for G.M. jobs in recent years. Fitterer joined the team as an area scout in 2001 and the club promoted him to director of college scouting in 2010 when Pete Carroll and John Schneider took over the front office.
