This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I really liked this book a lot because there is a lot of action. For example jack chases around a gang for quite some time just to try to get them away from the gold.
The gang ended up getting arrested for trying to steal the gold. Jack gets hurt badly a couple of time once he fell down a cliff and couldn't hardly stand up. It is also a pretty quick read and a very good book I am looking forward to reading more books like this. Jul 19, River rated it it was amazing. This book is really good.

Good for engaging young boys in books: 'The Quest for Aztec Gold: Mexico' is my son's favourite although there's a certain amount of fickleness following a re-read from a collection of fourteen 'Secret Agent Jack Stalwart' stories. He really did love this series of books. Perhaps this is no worse than a PG version of the original A-Team TV series from the s which my son also loves when stories book, TV and film versions were generally more innocent, and I didn't object then.
Perhaps because girls generally respond indifferently to the violence, whereas boys tend to grab the nearest object that works as a weapon and start to re-enact what they have just experienced. These are not stories to inspire perfect English writing from a technical perspective syntaxes, vocabulary and grammar in particular - here OUP's Project X stories would be better , however the stories are full of adventure, touching on world geography, history and foreign languages; furthermore, each has a creative introduction with engaging images of gadgets, maps and character profiles that inspires conversation.
I would imagine that most boys would love them, so this would certainly be a series to try for young boys who are less keen readers. Author Elizabeth Singer Hunt has a website with downloadable teacher guides for some of the books in the series. They use the stories to inspire readers to be creative in certain curriculum subjects, for instance designing their own gadgets in Art, and creating a pamphlet or PowerPoint presentation on a particular city in a Geography lesson. Kaili Xu rated it it was amazing Jul 27, Not many receivers beating Greedy this season.
The biggest questions Ridley will face are pertaining to his overall speed I think it's fine and ability to create after the catch. I know he isn't weak in either area, but how good can he be?
He doesn't have many amazing YAC plays, but he has shown the ability to be elusive with the ball in his hands, make one defender miss and finish behind his pads. Ridley reminds me of a slightly more raw Michael Thomas, but I think they are on a similar plane as prospects. Thomas was my WR1 in the class, and has continued to improve every year while ascending to become a top five wide receiver in the NFL.
Growth isn't linear for everyone, but Ridley's improvement over his time at Georgia is a good indicator that his best may also be yet to come in the NFL. Harmon has made a living in contested catches during his time at N. State, despite not always high-pointing the ball with arms fully extended. Instead, Harmon tends to leap in the air and bread-basket catch the ball while boxing out his opponent.
It's worked wonderfully for him in college, and there are certainly times where you've seen him go up and trust his hands as well, but it's fair to wonder how his process will consistently play out in the NFL. The biggest question with Harmon will be his overall athleticism, especially long speed and short-area quickness. His hands and concentration with the ball in the air are outstanding, and few receivers in the class use their body better to defend the catch point.
But if you can't separate within the majority of the route tree, NFL success has proven to be hard to come by for many. Brown is one of the toughest wide receivers in college football to figure out.
He works exclusively from the slot at 6-foot-1, pounds I don't think he's that heavy , and has very little experience getting off press coverage or running routes from an extended split. He's often working against zone coverage in the middle of the field, functioning almost like a tight end to sit down in space and then make something happen after the catch. I don't think Brown is a special athlete, but he is elusive and incredibly aware of defenders closing around him.
If he had more explosiveness, I would call him "special" after the catch, but as it stands he is still consistently capable of picking up extra yards on a regular basis after making a grab. Is he fast? Can he win down the field against top competition? Will he be able to separate against press man coverage in his releases or his routes?
All generally unknowns with Brown, but I do like his traits and ball skills enough to still have him in consideration for WR1 despite the concerns. It's been a quiet year for Harry in Arizona State's current offense, but the skills he flashed as a sophomore may resonate heavily with NFL teams. Some of the contested catches and post-catch plays that Harry has made during his career with the Sun Devils are jaw-dropping, and certainly worthy of inclusion on this list. My concerns with Harry are his overall athleticism, long speed and ability to run a full route tree with good attention to detail.
Physically, he's a marvel to look at, and there is no question he can make some awesome things happen after the catch. But is the overall polish there to be WR1?
The league hasn't exactly struck gold with raw Round 1 receivers over the past several years, which could deter them from taking Harry too early. How in the world can this be an actual take spoken by someone who covers the NFL for a living, and played the quarterback position? This claim, made in , came during a time when Rodgers' numbers weren't quite what we were used to, so box score scouts automatically lashed out at the star quarterback. But to suggest that Mike McCarthy, an above-average head coach at best, is more valuable to an NFL team than Aaron Rodgers, one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time, is a take that deserves to be institutionalized.
Nobody actually respects Bradshaw as an analyst, nor should they, and you'd think that would be enough to remove him and hire someone more competent. This take is from two years ago, and things have only gone downhill from there. Just because you were a quarterback in need of an all-time great head coach, wide receivers, running backs, and defense in order to be successful, Terry, does not mean Aaron Rodgers is too.
I still feel pretty good about all those proclamations, even with the Jets improving to Injuries have struck their secondary hard, and they play the Vikings next week and still have to play the Patriots twice. Atlanta staved off death to get to , and should be able to overcome the Giants next Monday night to get to heading into their bye, as predicted. I'm tempted to put a fork in the Bucs at on a three-game losing streak, but their offense is still playing well enough to have some faith, and they get the Browns on Sunday, a winnable game.
The Broncos are on a four-game losing streak, and face the Cardinals in Arizona on Thursday night.
