Josh Rosen was introduced at a news conference Friday at Arizona Cardinals headquarters.
It's heady stuff Travis Frederick Jersey , he acknowledged, being anointed a team's franchise quarterback of the future.
"It's pretty daunting," Rosen said. "The biggest thing is knowing that I have careers on my back. I have families, I have kids, and if I don't play well and I don't pan out, people have to get new jobs. People get fired and things happen, so you've got a lot on your shoulders."
The biggest misperception he'd like to clear up, he said, is that he lacks sufficient love for the game.
"Throughout the scouting process, you had to come up with answers to try and convince people you love the game and stuff," he said. "I'm lucky now. I got picked. I can just show people. I can just come to work each day and show people over time. I don't have to answer. I can actually just produce the proof in the pudding."
The UCLA star somehow slipped to 10th in the draft. The Cardinals traded up five spots to get him at the quite reasonable price of Arizona's No. 15 pick in the first round as well as a third- and fifth-round selection. He said Thursday night that he didn't know and didn't care why he slipped and was the fourth quarterback chosen.
"I was a little emotional last night," Rosen said. "I would actually say that I'm not as angry that there were nine guys (chosen) ahead of me, just the three quarterbacks. That's kind of what gets to me. So Gale Sayers Jersey , there were three big mistakes ahead of me."
But he said he now sees it as a lucky break.
"This is an unbelievable team that I think is really, really primed and set to do some incredible things in the future," Rosen said, "and I think I just, very simply, lucked out."
He will wear his usual No. 3, the same as his predecessor, the now-retired Carson Palmer.
Rosen will start out as backup to Sam Bradford and maybe Mike Glennon. It will be his first experience as a reserve.
"My goals for the year are to accomplish whatever coach McCoy sets out for me as a quarterback," he said. "Whatever he wants me to do, it's team first. ... I'm going to compete my butt off every single day, but then again, I'm not going to be the guy that comes in and thinks he's the man from Day 1. It's a long process, and you've got to earn it."
Rosen said he's learning a lot from Rodgers.
The two got to know each other because they're represented by the same agency. Rodgers is executive producer of a video that featured rookies under contract to the agency preparing for the draft.
"It was really cool when he came down and mentored me a little bit Russell Bodine Jersey ," Rosen said. "The relationship actually went a lot further than I thought it would initially. I thought we were just kind of going to hang out for the cameras a little bit and talk and try to make it look more than it was. But he has reached out to me a lot. He has been awesome."
As Rosen explained it, "I think the best word to describe him, and what I try to emulate is, he's a 'dude.' He's just the dude. When he's walking around the building or whatever he's doing, you just know he's that guy. When he steps into the huddle at a critical moment in a late-game (situation) at the end of the year, you know that he's stepping into that huddle and he's telling his guys he's going to go down and score a touchdown and that they're all going to believe him, because he's that dude."
Rosen wants to be that dude, too.
Dougie Hamilton is closing out an impressive performance in a disappointing season for the Calgary Flames.
Hamilton’s league-leading 17th goal by a defenseman helped Calgary snap a seven-game losing streak with a 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.
”Quick release. (His shot) comes on you in a hurry,” said Flames goaltender Mike Smith, who only has to stare it down in practice. ”He changes the angle really well. He’s definitely got a good shot.”
Mikael Backlund had a goal and an assist and Garnet Hathaway also scored to help Calgary to its first win since a 1-0 victory over Edmonton on March 13. Michael Frolik added two assists, and Smith stopped 34 shots.
Anton Slepyshev and Mike Cammalleri scored for Edmonton. Cam Talbot gave up three goals on seven shots before he was pulled 15 1/2 minutes in with the Oilers trailing 3-1. Al Montoya came on and stopped all 13 shots he faced.
Edmonton grabbed the lead on Slepyshev’s sixth of the season 2:41 into the first, but the Flames responded with three goals in less than nine minutes.
Hamilton got it started with a wicked 30-foot wrist shot that beat Talbot at 6:43 on the Oilers’ first shot on goal. Hamilton has 13 goals since Jan. 1, tying him with Sean Monahan for second on the team behind Matthew Tkachuk in that stretch.
”It’s so heavy and his release is quick Kailer Yamamoto Jersey , he doesn’t need a wind-up to get the velocity on it. I thought Dougie had an excellent game,” Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said.
Hathaway put the Flames in front at 11:54, beating Talbot on a wrist shot inside the post from nearly 60 feet out. The short-handed goal was Hathaway’s first goal in 42 games.
Backlund neatly pulled the puck around Talbot and fired in his 14th goal of the season with 4:32 remaining in the first. That was it for Talbot.
”It wasn’t his best night,” Oilers coach Todd McLellan said. ”If we could get one of them back, we’d take it. But he’s been tremendous. In the last six weeks, he’s been a rock for our team.”
The Oilers were the much better team in the second period, outshooting Calgary 12-5 and narrowing the deficit to 3-2 on Cammalleri’s deflection with 7:19 left.
”A tale of two teams. First period, not good, nothing to be proud of,” said Cammalleri, who hadn’t scored since Dec. 28. ”Second two (periods), probably more how we want to play.”
In one sequence, Edmonton had three odd-man rushes within the same penalty kill http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/ryan-anderson-jersey , but it only got one shot out of it. On consecutive 2-on-1s, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl failed each time to get a shot on goal.
Early in the third, the same duo combined again, but Draisaitl rang a shot off the post.
NOTES: McDavid, the NHL’s leading scorer, failed to pick up a point, snapping his six-game scoring streak (seven goals, seven assists). … Edmonton was 0 for 5 on the power play. Calgary was 0 for 3 and fell to 1 for 47 over the last 16 games. … Calgary F Johnny Gaudreau returned to the lineup after missing two games (family matter). His line centered by Nick Shore also had Edmonton-born Spencer Foo, who made his NHL debut. … With the Travis Hamonic (upper body) out, Matt Bartkowski returned to the lineup after being scratched 45 of the previous 46 games.
Oilers: At Minnesota on Monday night before closing the season with two home games.
Flames: Host Arizona on Tuesday night.
