Frank Reich addresses Torrey Smith and Carson Wentz’s chemistry … – Eagles Wire

Posted: at 3:44 am

We havent heard much about Torrey Smith this preseason. A lot of the wide receiver talk has been dominated by Alshon Jefferys chemistry with Carson Wentz or what happens to Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollinsfollowing the Jordan Matthews trade. Smith hasnt caughtone pass in either of the two Eagles preseason games thus far. Is there a chemistry problembetween Smith and Wentz? Absolutelynot. Offensive coordinator Frank Reich debunked that idea completely when asked about that on Monday after practice. I think their chemistry is good, Reich said. Torrey is a pro. He works very hard. I think theyve gotten a lot of reps together all through OTAs and training camp. So [I am] not concerned about the production in the preseason game where he really hasnt played that much. So [I] feel very good about that. And Reich doesnt think that preseason games dictate the amount of chemistry a QB and WR share. You have to throw deep balls, Reich said. I mean, you dont just say, Okay, hes a fast guy, just throw it deep. There is a chemistry, a timing and a feel to that. But I think theyve gotten a lot of that in OTAs and training camp, … Continue reading

Dolphins Practice Report: Cutler Developing Chemistry With Offense, Pouncey To Start Thursday – CBS Miami

Posted: at 3:44 am

Follow CBSMIAMI.COM:Facebook|Twitter PHILADELPHIA (CBSMiami) The Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles completed the second day of their joint practices on Tuesday. Now the teams will go their separate ways begin their final preparations for Thursdays preseason battle at Lincoln Financial Field. With the joint workouts now over, both teams can breathe a sigh of relief that no players on either side suffered any major injuries. There was one little scare for the Dolphins that turned out to be no big deal. Rookie cornerback Condrea Tankersley left the practice field accompanied by a trainer, though he did not appear to be in any discomfort. Head coach Adam Gase later revealed that Tankersley came out because he was sick. THE CUTLER CONNECTION Quarterback Jay Cutler had perhaps his best day of practice since joining the Dolphins. He connected with several of his pass catchers for touchdowns, including a pair of 40 yard bombs to Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker. Were getting better every day, so weve just got to continue to work before practice, in the meeting rooms, after practice, and get on the same page, Stills said. Hes a veteran guy and weve just got to go out there and make plays … Continue reading

Sean McDermott enhances Bills’ team chemistry by creating ‘campfires’ – Bills Wire

Posted: at 3:44 am

Its no secret Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott is big on building team chemistry through a variety of means. The most recent way hes done so is by moving players around the locker room. Players are no longer assigned lockers by position groups as done in the past. McDermotts been doing this since the beginning of off-season workouts and believes that by doing so it encourages members of the team to get to know one another better. Players who ordinarily wouldnt spend much time together find themselves sharing a locker next to one another. McDermott believes the results have been positive so far. Heres what McDermott had to say about the process after being asked by reporters if he liked the results. I have liked the results. It was, and still is, a team-building concept. I want to make sure that we spend so much time in a lot of little campfires. Youve got a campfire with the linebacking corps, youve got a campfire with the offense, a campfire over here with the defense, with the special teams, that as we continue to build this team and bring things together to one cohesive campfire, if you will in this case, … Continue reading

Rookie Cooper Kupp shines, shows chemistry with Goff – Yahoo Sports

Posted: at 4:43 pm

Rams rookie wide receiver Cooper Kupp has been much talked about coming out of camp. On Saturday night in Oakland, he showed why with six catches for 70 yards and a touchdown. Kupp has demonstrated dynamic route running capabilities to go along with hands that are impressively secure, especially for a rookie. He quickly found himself working alongside Rams starters, with his level of production that will not be changing anytime soon. His relationship with quarterback Jared Goff is likely his reason for his rapid production. The two have shown very strong chemistry in the offseason program and preseason games. Kupp holds many all-time receiving records in the FBS from his college career at Eastern Washington University. Kupp was a third round pick, going 69th overall to the Rams. Many teams did not value Kupps statistics as highly as the Rams did due to the strength of his competition. However, even when facing high profile corners such as Sidney Jones, Kupp fared quite well.

Could improved Dak Prescott-Dez Bryant chemistry offset Elliott absence? – Fort Worth Star Telegram

Posted: at 4:43 pm

Remember when the biggest criticism or question mark of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott during a sensational rookie season of a year ago was an alleged inability to throw the deep ball and a supposed lack of chemistry with star receiver Dez Bryant. Never mind that Bryant missed much of training camp last year with injuries when Prescott was not yet named the starter. Or that Bryant was sidelined for three games early in with the season with a fracture in his knee. His season-ending numbers of 50 catches for 796 and eight touchdowns were somehow linked to a shortcoming of Prescott's in what was otherwise considered the best rookie season of any quarterback in NFL history. It took only one series against in the Cowboys 24-19 preseason victory against the Indianapolis Colts for those concerns to disappear. It was the first action of the preseason for Prescott and Bryant and they showed the world what close observers have been seeing for the last four weeks of training camp. Bryant caught two passes for 55 yards, a 23-yarder to open the game and a 32-yard touchdown reception to cap the opening drive. Yeah, you know theyve played a lot of … Continue reading

To see the power of chemistry, there’s no place like home – Chemical & Engineering News

Posted: at 4:43 pm

In 1972, George Gray, professor at the University of Hull in the U.K., revolutionized the world we live in by synthesizing a molecule called 5CB, also known as 4-cyano-4-pentylbiphenyl. For the first time, this liquid crystal produced a bright, clear color display at room temperature. Eventually, it led to modern display screens found on many of our home products and appliances: televisions, refrigerators, clock radios, microwaves, thermostats, streaming music players, e-readers, phones, tablets, and laptops. If youre reading this on a flat-screen device, in a sense, youre staring at Grays chemical ingenuity. This is just one of many scientific innovations that have influenced the course of everyday events since the Age of Enlightenment. Chemistry has significantly shaped the world, right into our very dwellings. All we have to do is walk around our homes to see its effects. Chemistrys creations have transformed American homes. From the Industrial Revolution to the Digital Age, the chemical industry has not only adapted to lifestyle transitions and shifting consumer demands but also helped shape them. The world is on the brink of another paradigm shift, and innovations such as 5G telecommunications and the Internet of Things may usher in an unprecedented invention revolution.
