ded their 59th season as a professional football franchise.For 27 of those seasons — from 1967 through 1993 — the Chiefs had only two placekickers: Jan Stenerud and Nick Lowery.Stenerud represented a revolution.The first Norwegian to play in the NFL Bashaud Breeland Jersey , Stenerud pioneered the soccer-style kicking that is used by all modern placekickers and was the first pure kicker to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.Lowery simply represented excellence.Over his 14-year career with the Chiefs, he scored 1,466 points — still a franchise record — and was routinely counted as one of the best in the game.But after Lowery left the team, the word consistency hasn’t generally been associated with Chiefs placekickers.From 1994 until Ryan Succop joined the team in 2009, only one kicker had stayed with the team longer than three seasons: longtime Miami Dolphins placekicker Pete Stoyanovich handled placekicking from 1996 into the 2000 season.Dustin Colquit with Chiefs placekicker Lawrence Tynes in 2005. In his career with the Chiefs, Colquitt has held for Tynes and 10 other placekickers: Dave Rayner, Justin Medlock, John Carney, Steve Weatherford, Nick Novak, Connor Barth, Ryan Succop, Matt Szymanski, Cairo Santos and Harrison Butker.Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty ImagesBut Succop wasn’t the first young kicker the team had tried.Lawrence Tynes had the job from 2004 through 2006 but was traded to the New York Giants in 2007.Tynes would go on to kick game-winning overtime field goals in two different NFC Championship games, sending the Giants to the Super Bowl in both 2007 and 2011.Meanwhile, back in Kansas City, the Chiefs had drafted Justin Medlock in the fifth round.In the season opener, Medlock missed a 30-yard field goal in the first drive.He made another that day, but the Chiefs had seen enough. He was released immediately. Dave Rayner came in and lasted 10 games before giving way to 18-year veteran John Carney to finish the 2007 season.In 2008, free agent Nick Novak didn’t last the season, either; he was replaced by Connor Barth after just six weeks.Those two seasons represented the lowest point of a long, bad stretch of placekicking inconsistency for the Chiefs.So in 2009, the Chiefs took Ryan Succop with the last pick of the draft.By 2014, Succop had been solid — if not great — for the Chiefs over five seasons. When training camp arrived — and with Succop due a big payday —the team brought in competition: free agent Cairo Santos.The diminutive Brazilian — who barely spoke English, and learned most of what he knew about American football by playing Madden — won the job.While Santos got off to a rough start, eventually he became an effective (and popular) placekicker, becoming the most accurate field goal kicker in team history, making 84.8 percent of his field-goal attempts.After three seasons — particularly after Santos’ 2016 overtime kick against the Broncos in Denver doinked off the left upright and slipped in behind the right one to win the game — it seemed that the Chiefs might have finally found a long-term solution at the position.But in 2017, Santos missed several preseason games with a groin injury.Then he was hit hard after kicking a field goal in the Week 3 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.The next day, the Chiefs placed Santos on injured reserve and plucked Harrison Butker off the practice squad of the Carolina Panthers.“I don’t know anything about this new kicker Anthony Sherman Jersey ,” said Arrowhead Pride’s Joel Thorman when the move was announced, “but presumably special teams coach Dave Toub signed off on it. This one could hurt.”Like Succop in 2009, Butker had been picked by the Panthers in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL draft.A native of Decatur, Georgia who attended Atlanta’s exclusive Westminster School, he is a product of Georgia Tech, from which he graduated with a degree in industrial engineering.As a placekicker at Tech, Butker will be long remembered for two field goals in 2014 — one in the last second against Virginia Tech to win the game, and a 53-yarder against Georgia that sent the game into overtime — along with another in the final minute of the 2015 game against Florida State.Butker’s field goal tied the game, but then this happened as time expired.But he came into the NFL with a statistical oddity: at Tech, he had been more accurate at long distances than medium distances.Perhaps this was what had kept the Panthers from committing to him.In training camp, Butker had a tough battle against veteran kicker Graham Gano — and ultimately the Panthers couldn’t decide. They kept both Gano and Butker on the active roster for the first week of the season, apparently hoping to trade one of them.When no deal could be made, the Panthers cut Butker, held their breath and placed him on their practice squad after he cleared waivers.But the Chiefs had been paying attention.“He was obviously a good kicker in college,’’ Chiefs coach Andy Reid told the media after Butker had been poached from Carolina. “We liked him coming out. He’s got a strong leg. He’s a good kicker. We look forward to getting him in there and seeing how he does.”It was a whirlwind for Butker.“That whole week was probably the strangest week of my life,” he told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I’ve been in Atlanta my whole life, now I’m in Kansas City — a different part of the country. I’m so used to seeing Carolina blue and Panthers stuff — having been in Charlotte — and now it’s red, which is weird, having gone to Georgia Tech.”Butker had been raised in an environment where such things mattered.His father (also Harrison) favors the Georgia Bulldogs, and his mother Elizabeth is a Georgia Tech fan.But both of them — along with his fiancee Isabelle and his kicking coach Jamie Kohl — flew to Kansas City for Butker’s Chiefs debut in Week 4: a Monday night game against the Washington Redskins.It didn’t start well.With the Chiefs trailing 10-7 at the end of the first half, Butker — just like Medlock in 2007 — missed his first field-goal; the 46-yard attempt was wide left.But that would be it for a while.Photo by Peter Aiken/Getty ImagesNot only did Butker make two more field goals in that game — including the game-winning 43-yard attempt with eight seconds left — he also didn’t miss either a PAT or a field goal for the next two months. He finished the season without missing a single PAT, and made 90.5 percent of his field-goal attempts.Through two seasons with the Chiefs, he’s made 89.9 percent of his field-goal attempts — a rate that puts him in front of Santos as the most accurate in franchise history.A miss in the 2017 postseason — a 48-yard attempt in the third quarter of the 22-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans that easily could have made a difference in the game — might have removed some of Butker’s luster among Chiefs fans, but most fans probably remember... uhhh... other failures in that game.And in the 2018 postseason, Butker was perfect — including a 39-yard field goal with 11 seconds left that sent the AFC Championship into overtime.It all recalls the nickname Andy Reid gave him after his first game as a Chief.In his postgame press conference, he took a cue from Butker’s Twitter handle @buttkicker7, and referred to him as “Buttkicker-dot-com.”Thinking back to his time on the Panthers practice squad, Butker said he always had confidence he could succeed in the NFL.“The whole time, I’m thinking, ‘I’m ready for this. I’m ready to be a starting kicker in the NFL. I can do this Dustin Colquitt Jersey ,’” he told the Journal-Constitution.Butker might also have been fortunate to land with the Chiefs, with whom Dustin Colquitt would be holding his kicks, and special teams coordinator Dave Toub, who knows when it’s time to just get out of the way.“Dustin is like a kicker whisperer,” Toub told the media after Butker’s first game. “He speaks that language. He talks, and he knows exactly what went wrong when [the placekicker] misses. He knows a lot more than I know. I just know getting the ball through the uprights is good, but Dustin... he knows the finer points [from] doing it so long as a veteran, and [as] one of the best holders in the league. He knows all the finer points to kicking.”According to USA Today’s story on the 2017 Redskins game, Colquitt made the difference after Butker’s first miss in the NFL.But for the Chiefs, the best news might be the spectacular deal they got on Butker.They snagged a drafted rookie without expending any draft capital, and will end up having him on a minimum-cost contract for almost four full seasons — a point former sports agent Joel Corry noted last January.Gano — due to the contract that former Chief kicker Ryan Succop had just negotiated with the Tennessee Titans — scored a four-year, $17 million deal with the Panthers last spring, while the Chiefs still have Butker on an inexpensive deal for two more seasons.It’s a perfect example of why you should never try and stash a good kicker on your NFL practice squad.But for the Panthers, that’s all spilt milk.Butker is now well-established as the Chiefs placekicker, and it’s wouldn’t be a stretch to think the Chiefs will do their best to hang on to him when his rookie contract expires in 2021.That’s what you do when The ButtKicker finally finds his way to your team.Since Butker came to the Chiefs in the middle of the 2017 season — and came into his own in the midst of a season we’ll forever remember as The Season of Mahomes — we probably haven’t devoted enough attention to his story in these pages.But on Sunday, Butker and his wife Isabelle informed the world about another chapter in it: the birth of their son James Augustine Butker.It seemed like a great time to catch you up on Butker’s story, and what we hope will be the beginning of another long period of excellence in the Chiefs’ kicking game.Scouting Report: Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers Here’s a quick look at what the AP Nerd Squad think the keys to success on both sides of the ball are for the Chiefs in their week one match-up against the Chargers:Chargers offenseJake Roth-USA TODAY SportsCraig: The Chargers boast some great offensive weapons with running back Melvin Gordon, as well as wide receivers Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams, and Travis Benjamin. They’re missing last year’s breakout tight end, Hunter Henry due to injury, but they upgraded the middle of their offensive line this offseason with the addition of center Mike Pouncey. The Chargers were already an athletic run-blocking team with their previous offensive line, and Pouncey should make them even more dangerous running the ball. In the passing game, quarterback Phillip Rivers does a good job getting the ball to his playmakers when he has time to examine the field. However, the moment he gets moved off of his spot by any amount of defensive pressure, Rivers has a tendency to make very poor decisions and throw ill-advised passes. With the Chargers offensive line being much better run blockers than pass blockers, these throws have come at an increasing rate over the past few years.Key player to watch (Kent): Tyrell Williams. As amazing as Keenan Allen (and believe me, he’ll get his production), the big play potential of Williams is what could ultimately lead to trouble for the Chiefs’ defense on Sunday. Williams averaged nearly 17 yards per catch in 2017 and ranked fifth in the NFL in that category. The Chiefs need to limit explosive plays to give themselves the best chance to win. Williams is a big threat to increase the volume of explosive plays.If Williams is having success, it could indicate that Rivers is not being moved off of his spot and allowing completions in rhythm to a player who is one of the best YAC receivers in all of football.How the Chiefs defense wins (Craig): BRING. THE. HEAT. Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton has seen more of Rivers than any other quarterback in his tenure with the team Rashad Fenton Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , and he’s had tons of success against him. Bob typically finds ways to bring rushers from different positions, putting Chris Jones, Dee Ford and Justin Houston in good positions to create pressure on Rivers and the Chargers offense. While the personnel who intercepted the six passes against the Chargers last year is largely gone, Rivers is pretty generous giving the ball away to everyone, so watch for some poor throws under duress this week. Additionally, the Chiefs front seven must have sound run discipline to recognize the Chargers blockers in space, as well as holding the point of attack with their defensive line to corral the running backs.

The Chargers’ overall scheme is relatively simple, as most of the time the Chargers’ will be running a variation of Cover 3 and their second most common coverage call will be Cover 1 man which maintains that single-high safety appearance. Their pass rush isn’t overly complex, just relying on Bosa and Ingram to generate pressure by winning their individual matchups, and their most complex usage is when lined up next to each other utilizing inside/outside stunts. The meat and potatoes of the Chargers defense up the middle (DTs, ILBs, and SS) are relatively mediocre and excel at doing their job but rarely will make a difference on any given play. The addition of Derwin James is still a work in progress in terms of team cohesion but he provides much more versatility than Tre Boston allowing them to be more fluid in their Cover 3/6 adjustments making the hot reads a little trickier. Key player to watch (Kent): Melvin Ingram. The pressure to generate pressure will primarily fall on Ingram this week, as Bosa has been ruled out for Week 1. The player that can most disrupt the rhythm of young Patrick Mahomes will be the seventh-year EDGE from South Carolina. If the Chiefs are able to slow down Ingram, it’ll go a long way in being able to protect Mahomes and allow him opportunities to get the ball to his playmakers scattered around the field. How the Chiefs offense wins (Matt): The Chiefs offense got the good news that Joey Bosa would not be available for the game this Sunday which sidelines the Chargers best pass rusher as well as a top tier run defender on their squad. In order for the Chiefs to take full advantage of this defense missing their best player, they will need to attack the empty space left underneath by the Chargers’ Cover 3 defense and add yards after the catch to their receptions. As the Chargers are forced to counter this with faster, lighter defenders in their nickel and dime packages to limit the easy yards Andy Reid is able to manufacture, the Chiefs should follow suit of last year and go back to 11 and 12 personnel and run the ball with some of the gap and man running schemes they flashed in the preseason. As the Chargers second-level defenders are being forced to react quickly to the running game to avoid getting pushed around, the Chiefs should be able to mix in some play-action passes to intermediate and deep zones as the hook/curl defenders are being pulled forward. With Bosa being sidelined, this should allow the Chiefs an extra second to carry out the deeper route combinations. To see the Xs and Os (visually and more thoroughly explained) of exactly how the Chiefs can attack the Chargers defense make sure to check out the Advanced Scouting Report Film Preview: Offensive Edition.Nerd squad predictionsCraig: The Chiefs defense without Eric Berry creates all kinds of question marks in the secondary, but that’s nothing the Chiefs haven’t seen before. The Chiefs held the Chargers to 10 and 13 points in their two matchups in 2017 with a mishmash of bodies in the secondary. With the Chargers missing Joey Bosa, as well as Jason Verrett and Corey Liuget, the Chiefs offense gets rolling and the defense holds. Chiefs 27-14.Matt: Losing Eric Berry for this game definitely affects the Chiefs defense quite a bit but it pales in comparison to what losing Bosa does for the Chargers who historically have struggled to stop KC. In typical Andy Reid fashion, we have barely scratched the surface of what the Chiefs are going to bring to the table offensively and defensively. Andy Reid with extra time to prepare for a defense that isn’t exactly innovative and designed to stop traditional Reid staples (horizontal passing and screen game) should be in line for another big game. While the Chargers offense should be poised to beat up the Chiefs defense, the same should have happened last year and simply didn’t as Sutton has always game planned well vs Rivers. Chiefs 27-13Kent: The loss of Bosa for the Chargers makes me more confident that the Chiefs can go to a soccer stadium and beat a team on their rented field. The Chiefs should be able to protect Mahomes enough to allow him time to get the ball in the hands of his playmakers. The defense needs to affect Rivers just enough to slow the Chargers offense down in a shootout. Chiefs 31-27

Musikazblai Euskera, el portal más completo dedicado a la música vasca

Aquí encontrarás todo lo necesario para no perderte en el mundo de la euskal musika: letras de canciones en euskera (lengua vasca), grupos, bandas, artistas, solistas, cantantes y autores vascos, sus discos, traducciones a otros idiomas, acordes para guitarra, algunas canciones MP3, fotos, unos foros de discusión, y una comunidad de gente joven amante de la música vasca. Aunque la base de datos cuenta con varios miles de canciones vascas de todos las épocas y estilos (rock, pop, tradicional, punk, reggae, electrónica, heavy, clásica…), es posible que eches en falta algún grupo musical o canción. Puedes colaborar enviándolas tú mismo a través de las páginas de colaboración. Si te animas a sugerir nuevos grupos, bandas o solistas, recuerda que el único requisito es que algunas de sus canciones sean en lengua vasca. Más

El compromiso de Musikazblai Euskera es con el euskera y la música en euskera. En Internet hay decenas de sitios donde es posible encontrar información sobre los artistas que cantan en castellano o en inglés, pero encontrar una comunidad articulada en torno a la música de Euskal Herria y al euskera era difícil y por eso comenzamos este portal, que abarca sobre todo gente joven amante de la música de su tierra. La mayoría son vascohablantes, si bien un porcentaje significativo de las visitas son de fuera del País Vasco e incluso de fuera de Europa: vascos y vascas emigrados y otras personas interesadas en la lengua y la música del País Vasco. Como una parte de estas personas interesadas en la euskal musika no dominan el idioma existen también traducciones de muchas canciones al castellano, realizadas por los propios usuarios. Si nos visitas desde fuera y no conoces Euskadi, (también llamado País Vasco, Pays Basque, Euskal Herria o Euskalherria), se trata del pueblo vasco, situado a ambos lados de la frontera entre España y Francia en la parte occidental de los Pirineos, y cuyas principales ciudades son Bilbao, Vitoria (Gasteiz), San Sebastián (Donosti), Barakaldo, Getxo, Irún, Portugalete, Santurtzi, Basauri y Rentería. En Navarra, donde también se habla euskera, son Iruña (Pamplona), Tudela, Barañáin, Burlada (Burlata), Estella (Lizarra), Zizur, Tafalla y Atarrabia (Villaba).
