    • GREEN BAY, Wis. Andrew Norwell Jersey . - Jordy Nelson had a secret on the way to the first practice of Packers training camp. It didnt take long for the rest of his teammates to find out. Green Bays leading receiver now has a deal commensurate with his production after signing a contract extension just before taking the field Saturday morning. "So I was like the last one in the locker room and waiting on the paperwork to come down to get it done. That way, I had some security when I went out to practice," Nelson said. "That was a little bit different, and knowing no one knew (but) me the whole time Im riding down there and on the field." Soon enough, Nelson told fellow receivers and the quarterbacks. Coach Mike McCarthy found out in the middle of practice. Right about the time that Nelson was making a pretty touchdown catch on a long corner pass from Aaron Rodgers, word filtered out on social media. The Packers didnt divulge terms when announcing the signing after the end of practice, and NFL.com reported it was a four-year, $39 million deal with an $11.5 million signing bonus. "He said he re-signed and he was really happy," Rodgers said. "Now he can buy all the land in Kansas. Im very happy." Nelson, a Kansas native who attended Kansas State, posted career-bests of 85 catches and 1,314 yards last season. The 2008 second-round pick has developed into one of the top receivers in the league with his ability to make sideline catches. Rodgers thinks Nelson has top-notch instincts and reactions. "So its fun to see Jordy re-sign for four more. I told him that thats five (years) for him and Ive got six left, so were going to have to do one more after that and stick around a little bit longer," Rodgers said. The signing secures the teams top player at a position that had several high-profile departures in recent years. Reliable veteran James Jones left for Oakland in free agency in the off-season. After the 2012 season, Donald Driver retired and Greg Jennings departed as a free agent for division rival Minnesota. Now the Packers must also decide how to proceed with receiver Randall Cobb, a 2011 second-round pick going into the final year of his rookie deal. "Well, every coach wants his core guys, no doubt about it," McCarthy said. "Like I said before, if I was in charge of the player checkbook, we would have been way over the budget a long time ago." Nelsons extension overshadowed what likely would have been the top story line of Day 1 with the return of pass-rushing linebacker Clay Matthews. He watched during off-season workouts while recovering from a second surgery in the off-season to repair a broken right thumb. Practice Saturday had the Packers lining up Matthews and defensive end-linebacker Julius Peppers — the teams big free-agent acquisition — on the field at the same time. Its the ideal pass-rushing scenario for the team going into 2014. Matthews had what looked like a flexible black wrap protecting his right hand. There were no limitations with the linebacker, other than "just being smart," McCarthy said. The recovery process appeared to be a little frustrating for the long-haired linebacker. The thumb "feels pretty strong and will continue to get stronger with the reps I take on the football field," Matthews said. "This off-season was definitely an uphill battle coming off an injury, but I think that just makes this year that much more special to me." It will likely be memorable one as well for Nelson because of the extension. Lauded for his leadership qualities, Nelson seems content to finish his career in Green Bay. Nelson realizes this is a business. He also said he never considered holding out. "I dont like the word worth," Nelson said, interrupting a reporter who used it in a question. "I dont like the word worth because to be honest with you, I dont think any of us are worth this money. But its your value and the business were a part of." Note: LBs Mike Neal (abdomen) and Nick Perry (foot/knee) were close to being ready for practice, McCarthy said. The linebackers, who should rotate with Matthews and Peppers as pass rushers, had similar injuries last year. A.J. Bouye Jersey . According to Tony Barrett of The Times, the Liverpool captain is set to announce that he will leave the club at the end of the 2014-15 season. Leonard Fournette Jersey .com) - Al Horford collected 19 points and 16 rebounds and the Atlanta Hawks held off a furious rally to beat the Detroit Pistons 106-103 on Friday night in a game between two of the NBAs hottest teams.NEW YORK -- Madison Bumgarner pitched a two-hitter and Hunter Pence homered twice to lead the San Francisco Giants to a 9-0 win over the New York Mets on Sunday. Bumgarner (13-8) beat the Mets again, running his record to 3-0 in five games against them and giving the Giants their third win in 10 games. Brandon Belt and Buster Posey also went deep for the Giants. The left-hander struck out 10 and walked one in his second career shutout (the other was a one-hitter in 2012 against the Reds), wrapping up Sundays gem with a punch out of pinch-hitter Travis dArnaud to wrap up the game in a tidy 94 pitches. Mets starter Bartolo Colon (10-9) was going for win No. 200, but the Giants got to him with a couple of home runs that barely cleared the wall before he started to look eminently hittable in the three-run fifth inning. Pences two-run shot in the third was a line drive that went off the railing above the moved-in fence in left field. Brandon Belt hit a towering fly to right that tucked in just over the fence and inside the pole there for a 3-0 lead. Bumgarner singled and scored his first of two runs on Pences double in the fifth, and Posey drove him in before Pablo Sandovals single eended Colons afternoon. Taven Bryan Jersey. The easygoing 41-year-old right-hander tossed the ball gently in the air on the mound as he waited for Collins to remove him. Colon allowed six runs and eight hits in 4 2-3 innings as he tried for his 200th career win. TRAINERS ROOM Giants: OF Angel Pagan (back) was set to continue his rehab assignment with a move to Triple-A Fresno, where the organization hopes to get him in games Monday and Tuesday. UP NEXT Giants: Right-hander Tim Hudson (8-8) has a 1.77 ERA in his three starts since the All-Star break. He had a no-decision against the Mets earlier this season in San Francisco in a game the Giants won 5-4 on June 7. Mets: Righty Dillon Gee (4-4) makes his fifth career start against the Giants, against whom he has a 6.75 ERA and 0-1 record. BARTOLO AT THE BAT Fans could be heard groaning in disappointment for all three of Colons swing-and-misses during his third-inning at bat, but applauded his effort as he returned to the dugout. BACK IN BASH The Giants entered Sundays game with two home runs in their past 10 games, but added four against New York pitching. Pence hit Nos. 14 and 15 this season, while Poseys was his 13th and Belt hit his 11th. Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '

    • The defending Stanley Cup champions will begin the second round on home ice, as the Chicago Blackhawks host the Minnesota Wild at United Center in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals. Kerry Wood Jersey . Watch the Blackhawks vs. Wild live tonight on TSN2 at 9:30pm et/6:30pm pt. This series is rematch of a 2013 postseason matchup, as the Wild were the Blackhawks first victim in their march to the Cup last year. Chicago knocked Minnesota out of the first round in five games, losing only Game 3 on the road and holding a 17-7 edge in scoring. That was the first playoff meeting between these clubs, but the Wild can lean on the fact they went 3-1-1 versus the Blackhawks this season, splitting two games in Chicago. Game 2 of this series also will be staged in the Windy City on Sunday afternoon. For a little while, the Blackhawks quest to repeat as NHL champions appeared as if it was going to come to an end with a first-round exit. Then the Blackhawks reminded everyone just whey they are coming off their second Stanley Cup in four years. It looked as if Chicagos inability to claim home-ice advantage in its quarterfinals matchup with the St. Louis Blues would be the difference, as the Blackhawks lost a pair of overtime decisions to begin the set. That included a triple-overtime setback in Game 1 at Scottrade Center and the fact that the Hawks followed up with another 4-3 overtime setback in Game 2 could have left the club with slumped shoulders going back to the Windy City. Instead of rolling over, the Blackhawks got a 34-save shutout from Corey Crawford to win Game 3 before Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews potted back-to- back overtime-winning goals in Games 4 and 5. Toews then started a four-goal barrage in the third period of Game 6s series-clinching 5-1 win. Toews showed why he wears the captains "C" on his jersey as all three of his goals in the series were game-winners and he matched defenseman and Norris Trophy nominee Duncan Keith for the club lead with seven points. Toews was one of six multi-goal scorers for the Blackhawks in the series, with Kane also potting three goals. Keith and fellow defenseman Brent Seabrook added two goals and Seabrook finished with six points despite missing three games due to suspension for a hit to the head in Game 2. As expected, the duo of Keith and Seabrook logged a ton of minutes. Keith was on the ice for nearly 30 minutes a game, while Seabrook averaged 27 minutes and 41 seconds of ice time. Hell need to maintain his discipline in Round 2. Chicago also had the best penalty kill percentage coming out of the first round, limiting St. Louis to two goals on 29 chances. Crawford, meanwhile, settled down after a rough start to keep the Blackhawks chances of becoming the first repeat champions since the 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings alive. Rocked for eight goals in the two losses, Crawford followed up his third career postseason shutout by yielding just six goals on 98 shots over the final three games. He ended the series with a 2.03 goals against average and .926 save percentage. The Wild survived Round 1 despite playing from behind seemingly the whole time during their quarterfinals matchup with the Central Division champion Colorado Avalanche. A road team did not win a game in the series until Minnesotas 5-4 victory in Game 7. In that contest, the Wild overcame four one-goal deficits, getting a game-tying goal with 2:27 left in regulation before Nino Niederreiters tally 5:02 into overtime. Niederreiters second goal of the game capped the latest comeback of the series for the Wild. They trailed 2-0 in the series after losing the first two on the road and then were behind 3-2 ahead of a Game 6 victory. Rookie netminder Darcy Kuemper was seen as the savior at the early portion of the series, relieving Ilya Bryzgalov in Game 2 and going perfect with 14 saves. He then allowed just one goal in total in back-to-back home victories, including a defensive 22-save gem in Game 3. Like the rest of Minnesotas roster, Kuemper showed an ability to bounce back, following up a Game 5 defeat with a 21-save effort in the next game to extend the series. However, Kuemper was forced to exit Game 7 after 51 minutes of action due to an unknown injury and Bryzgalov had to make just one save in 13 minutes and 15 seconds of relief before Niederreiters goal. The injury will leave Bryzgalov as the starter for at least Game 1 of this series and he posted just a 4.25 goals against average and .826 save percentage in his three games that totaled 112:41 of ice time. John Curry, a 30-year-old journeyman, will suit up as Bryzgalovs backup. Curry has seen action in six career NHL games and none in the playoffs. Head coach Mike Yeo said that Kuemper is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury following Fridays morning skate. Minnesota has made it to the playoffs in both seasons since signing forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter to monster contracts and both were solid in Round 1. Parise had three goals and seven assists, tying him with three other players -- two of those on the Avalanche -- for the postseason lead in points. Mikko Koivu was second on the club with six points off a goal and five helpers. Suter, meanwhile, averaged 29:47 of ice time and had a goal with three assists to lead Wild defensemen in points. Thirteen different skaters scored a goal for the Wild against the Avalanche, with Charlie Coyle matching Parise for the team lead with three. Youngsters Niederreiter and Mikael Granlund added two each along with veteran Kyle Brodziak, while blueliners Jared Spurgeon and Marco Scandella also scored twice. Kuemper won his only start versus Chicago this season, stopping 33-of-34 shots faced at home in January, while Bryzgalov took a shootout loss in Chicago. Bryzgalov is 8-6-5 with a 2.51 GAA lifetime versus the Blackhawks. Crawford, meanwhile, went 2-2-0 with a 2.98 GAA in four games versus the Wild this season. Kane had three goals and two assists versus the Wild in 2013-14 Toews, though, was held to just a pair of assists. Parise had two goals against Chicago in the season series, while Suter had three assists and Granlund four helpers. Mark Grace Jersey . The 31-year-old Russian dominated the No. 3-ranked Ferrer throughout, breaking the defending champion and local favourite four times on the indoor hard court. Ian Happ Jersey .J. -- While Martin Brodeur wasnt willing to say he stole one for the New Jersey Devils against the Columbus Blue Jackets, almost everyone else was.TORONTO – Three cities, 10 games, 10 days. The Blue Jays embark on the longest remaining road trip of the season having concluded a successful 5-2 homestand against Texas and Boston, two of the American Leagues weaker sisters. The fun begins at House of Horrors North (with deference paid to Tropicana Field, the Jays original House of Horrors), also known as Yankee Stadium, where Toronto is winless in its last 16 games dating back to an August 29, 2012 victory. On that day, J.A. Happ got the win in relief and CC Sabathia took the loss. Players insist they pay no mind to the skid in the Bronx. "Playing a team in our division thats right there with us, having said that the success or failures in New York, we just dont think about it," said closer Casey Janssen. "I know that the media loves to take this on but we just havent played well there. We can beat them at home. We can beat them on the road. We can. We just havent." "Those guys are aware of it but I dont know if you need to have a team meeting over it," said manager John Gibbons. "Go out and play harder? I dont know." There was no Curse of the Bambino. No billy goat has prevented the listless Cubs from reaching a World Series since 1945. There is no hex on the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium, even if it feels like it. The coaches discuss the Yankee Stadium issue in meetings. "The bottom line is its always been a tough place to win anyway," said Gibbons. "I dont remember it being this difficult and its strange because weve always played pretty good at Fenway." Gibbons hinted hell make one change prior to Fridays game. The team wont take batting practice on the field, opting for the underneath cage instead. The skipper joked that he wants to avoid seeing the "Yankeeography" show the hometown team runs on its scoreboard during visitors batting practice. On a daily basis, the Yankees pump out content reliving one of the franchises numerous excellent decades or profiling one of clubs legendary players. The Blue Jays go to Boston for three games to start next week and follow that up with four games against the Astros in Houston. The non-waiver trade deadline, July 31, falls on the day the club arrives deep in the heart of Texas. The Jays will enter Yankee Stadium tied with New York for second in the American League East, three games behind Baltimmore for the division lead and a half-game ahead of Seattle for the second wild card spot. Alex Avila Jersey. Both Toronto and New York have won three straight games heading into their series. The Jays throw, in this order, Mark Buehrle, Drew Hutchison and J.A. Happ. The Yankees throw, in this order, Hiroki Kuroda, Shane Greene and Chase Whitley. Surely, the odds would suggest the Blue Jays will nip this Bronx skid in the bud. "Half these guys werent here to lose with us or turn it around," said Janssen. "When we walk in to any place we expect to win. Yankee Stadium is no different." STROMAN BRILLIANT AGAIN There isnt much to be said about Marcus Stroman. His pitching is doing the proverbial talking. The 23-year-old rookie tossed seven scoreless innings of one-hit ball in Thursday afternoons 8-0 win over the Red Sox, a victory which gave Toronto a three-out-of-four series victory. He teased a no-hitter through six complete. At that time, Stroman had thrown 91 pitches. Would manager John Gibbons have allowed Stroman to work into the ninth, likely at 120 pitches or more, had Shane Victorino not led off the seventh with a single? "Youll never know. Youll never know," joked Gibbons. "I think they would have let me go," said Stroman. "Im pretty sure they would have let me go. But, yeah, theyre definitely watching pitches so it becomes tough if I would have got up into the ninth and I would have had 120, 130 pitches, its almost like, what do you do? Im pretty sure they would have let me go. I think they have the confidence in me to let me go now." Its a double-edged sword. "I cant say Im glad he gave up a hit," said Gibbons. "That was going through our minds. This keeps going, you know youve got a young kid, youre trying to win a division, you know, do you keep throwing him out there over and over? I dont know if relief is the right word but (giving up a hit) didnt hurt." Stroman, in 10 big league starts, has a 2.21 ERA. In four of his last five starts, each at least 6 2/3 innings, he has held his opponent scoreless while still in the game. He was charged with two earned runs in a loss to the White Sox on June 28. Those two runs crossed when Dustin McGowan, in relief of Stroman who had left with two runners on, allowed a three-run home run to Chicagos Dayan Viciedo. Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '

"Who knows whats going to happen on the horizon here and right now I dont know if I want to talk about it too much.Newark, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello has come up with a unique solution to fix the teams coaching situation. After firing head coach Peter DeBoer on Friday, Lamoriello announced on Saturday that he will join Scott Stevens and Adam Oates behind the bench. Oates will have full control of the forwards, while Stevens will have full control over the defensemen. Neither Oates nor Stevens was given an official title. New Jersey plays the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Saturday. Lamoriello said that it would be unfair to ask one person to come in and be the head coach for the rest of the season. Assistant coach Dave Barr was dismissed. This marks the third time Lamoriello has been behind the bench for New Jersey, all of them coming after he fired a coach in-season. He has posted an impressive 34-14-5 regular season record in two brief stints dating back to 2005-2006 and 2006-2007. DeBoer led the Devils to a 12-17-7 start.

The Devils represented the Eastern Conference in the Stanley Cup Finals, but lost to the Los Angeles Kings in six games. Oates and Stevens are both in the Hockey Hall of Fame as players, with the latter man known best for time spent as captain of the Devils from 1992 until his retirement following the 2003-04 season. He helped lead New Jersey to three Stanley Cup titles during that time. Both Oates and Stevens previously served as assistant coaches for the Devils. Oates was on DeBoers staff when the club reached the 2012 Cup Finals before leaving to become the head coach of the Washington Capitals. He was fired by the Capitals last spring after two seasons with the club. Stevens served as an assistant under DeBoer in 2013-14 before stepping down prior to this season. Cheap Hoodies From ChinaDiscount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '

    • TORONTO -- In playing Real Salt Lake this weekend, Toronto FC is taking on the kind of team it aspires to be -- a perennial playoff side with a winning tradition and championship character. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Tracy-Walker-Draft-Jersey/ . Now in its 10th season, Real Salt Lake has made the playoffs the last six years, winning the MLS Cup in 2009. Until overtaken in the MLS record books early last year, Real Salt Lake held the league mark for consecutive home wins at 29. Rio Tinto Stadium was an impregnable fortress from June 2009 to May 2011. Toronto (2-0-0 this season) has a 1-5-0 lifetime record in Sandy, Utah. RSL (1-0-2 this season) was also the first MLS team to reach the CONCACAF Champions League final, losing to Monterrey 3-2 on aggregate in 2011. Last season Real Salt Lake made it to two finals but lost both: beaten in the MLS Cup by Sporting Kansas City in an agonizing penalty shootout and 1-0 by D.C. United in the U.S. Open Cup. There has been stability on the sidelines with Jeff Cassar, who has been with the team since May 2007, moving up the ladder to head coach last December after Jason Kreis became the first head coach of New York City FC. Cassar is the third head coach in RSL history. Toronto was on coach No. 5 in Year 4 and is currently on its eighth manager in Ryan Nelsen. RSL captain Kyle Beckerman arrived in 2007 in a trade from the Colorado Rapids. The midfielder with the distinctive dreadlocks credits coaching and a little luck for the franchises success. "We were able to get players into this team that were ready to be coached by a coach like Jason and Jeff Cassar and Robin Fraser (a former RSL assistant coach who is now with the New York Red Bulls)," he said Thursday. "It just so happened that we were able to get a group of guys together that ... really just needed a good environment -- an ownership that cared, a coaching staff that did the right thing. A lot of the guys were coming from places that didnt do the game right. "A lot of us, that core group thats still here, it was a breath of fresh air that we really needed. And we just took full advantage because we knew exactly the opportunity that was in front of us, because wed had it the opposite way, where the owner doesnt care or the coach just doesnt get it. "So I think we lucked out a little bit that we had the core in the same place, here in Salt Lake, that was just absolutely ready to explode and take full advantage of what was in front of us. And thats what we did." The 31-year-old Beckerman is joined on the team by fellow U.S. internationals Nick Rimando (a goalie who came on board in 2007) and Luis Gil (a midfielder who joined in 2010). Other veterans include defenders Nat Borchers (2008) and Chris Wingert (2007), midfielders Ned Grabavoy (2009) and Javier Morales (2007) and forwards Robbie Findley (two stints since 2007) and Alvaro Saborio (2010). Players want to come to winning clubs. And RSL does a good job checking out new talent. "They want to bring in not only good players but good people," said Beckerman. Toronto FC has followed the same road this off-season, with marquee signings Jermain Defoe, Michael Bradley, Gilberto and Julio Cesar all fitting in. Beckerman acknowledges that he respects Torontos search for success. "The thing that I really admire about Toronto is that they wont stop. Theyve kept at it. Theyve kept trying to fix and get the right recipe. And it doesnt seem like theyre going to stop any time soon. Theyre going to keep going and keep spending until they get the right recipe. "And I admire that. Thats something a lot of other teams would love to have that. With the fan base, theyve been loyal there and theyve stuck with them through tough times. The ownership and what theyre doing there, is kind of a reward to that loyalty and giving them a successful team. "Time will tell if this is the right one. But it seems so far that theyve brought in the right players so far. So I think its definitely on the up and up over there." Like Toronto, the early days were bleak in Salt Lake. The team went 5-22-5 with just 20 points in its inaugural season in 2005. In 2005-06, the fledgling franchise endured a league-record 18-game winless streak. But it didnt take long for Real Salt Lake to turn the corner. It had 39 points in Season 2 and 40 in Season 4, going 10-10-10 and reaching the 2008 playoff semifinals. In 2009, it was another 40-point season and the 11-12-7 team went on to win the title. Since then, RSL has collected 56, 53, 57 and 56 points. In contrast, Torontos points total since entering the league in 2007 is 25, 35, 39, 35, 33, 23, and 29. The two teams meet Saturday. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Matthew-Stafford-Draft-Jersey/ . Mauer struck out to end the inning, with a runner on third base in the seventh on Wednesday and the Twins trailing 1-0. Everybody does this, of course, in a sport with a 30 per cent success rate at the plate long proven to be a benchmark of excellence. Quandre Diggs Jersey . Ted Ligety, Mikaela Shiffrin, Bode Miller and Tim Jitloff underlined the squads enormous potential on the Rettenbach glacier in Austria.UDINE, Italy -- Udinese scraped a narrow 1-0 win at home to Genoa in the Italian league, and needed the help of an own goal to do so. The home side dominated possession Tuesday and had the better of the chances but struggled to really test Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin. The deadlock was broken 11 minutes from time when Emanuele Calaio headed Antonio Di Natales free kick into his own net. Glover Quin Jersey. . Di Natale thought he had scored in the first half but the Udinese captains effort was ruled offside. Udinese extended its unbeaten home run in the league to 21 games. Both teams had been level on four points but Udineses second win of the campaign moved it provisionally into the top half of the table -- ahead of the other midweek fixtures. Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '

Let goDEFENDERSBacary Sagna - Hes proven this season that hes the best right-back at the club with a really solid campaign. KeepPablo Zabaleta - The Premier Leagues best right-back in his day, but he looks past the peak of his powers, with age and injury problems seeing him lose that yard of pace. Let goVincent Kompany - Theres no doubt Pep will want to keep him but more importantly hell want to find a way to keep him fit. KeepEliaquim Mangala - Once again Pep will be looking at whether his centre-backs are good enough to be in a Champions League winning side and none of their other three meet that criteria. Let go Mangala and Otamendi struggle to contain Jamie Vardy Nicolas Otamendi - The same applies for Otamendi. Hes not proven to be worth the transfer fee they splashed out for him. Let goMartin Demichelis - Hes another one thats on the wrong side of his best years at 35, as we saw with his performance against Manchester United. Let goAleksandar Kolarov - I actually like Citys left-back options, with a good balance of having Kolarov for the games that they can control and where he can get forward. KeepGael Clichy - Clichy has the pace and defensive skill set for him to be trusted in the big games against dangerous wingers. KeepMIDFIELDERSFernando - Hes done alright, nothing spectacular, and I think Pep will keep him as backup and as somebody to bring on to help see games out. KeepFernandinho - Hes similar, not just by name, in that he does a decent job. He rarely stands out but doesnt have many bad games either. KeepFabian Delph - I think Pep will probably want to keep two of three three central-midfielders and Delph is perhaps the one hed allow to leave. Let goJesus Navas - Hes not for me. I dont think hes a Pep player either. His end product isnt great as a poor crosser and an absolutely woeful finisher. Let go Jesus Navas scores his only goal since September 2014 Samir Nasri - I think hell get a chance after a long injury. Hes got good quality and has shown glipses of it since returning and is the type of player Guardiola might like. KeepDavid Silva - Hes not been up to his usual standards, struggling to get on the scoresheet this season, but hes still managed double figures in assists. KeepKevin de Bruyne - Hes exactly the sort of player Guardiola will like and will definitely be an important player for him next season. Keep Pick your team Aguero? Ozil? De Bruyne? Pick your Fantasy Six-a-Side team for the chance to win £10,000 FORWARDSRaheem Sterling - I think hell give him a chance but only one season to deliver. If hes as inconsisntent next season then I dont see him being regular, but hes still young enough to improve. KeepSergio Aguero - Hes one of the best in the Premier League so will definitely stay. However, he hasnt managed a single shot on target in his last five Champions League games, which is shocking for a player of his quality, although that is perhaps as much down to his team-mates. Keep Wilfried Bony has four goals in 25 Premier League appearances Wilfied Bony - I think Pep will want a better quality back up striker to push Aguero and Bony hasnt delivered in his chances. Hes not looked the same player as he did at Swansea. Let goKelechi Iheanacho - Ive been impressed with him this season. He hasnt been given loads of chances but when he has hes taken them, with an impressive goals-per-minutes ratio.

Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. On Sunday, Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist scored what could very well be the goal of the year.  As he broke in on the net he was clearly held and the ref had his arm up to call a penalty, or penalty shot, but allowed Nyquist to continue on his breakaway first.  If a second infraction was committed on Nyquist, a trip or a slash for example, before he scored the goal, would both calls be wiped out or would the Red Wings be awarded the goal and a power play. Thanks for taking the time to read my question. Matt NimmoBrampton CLICK HERE to watch the play in question. Matt: After being fouled by Matt Carle on a breakaway, Gustav Nyquist demonstrated amazing patience, persistence and the hands of a surgeon in order to regain puck possession with both skates well below the goal line and then slide the disk into the net past Ben Bishop from what appeared to be an impossible angle.  Not many players, past or present, possess the skill and instinct required to spin and thread the needle at full speed to score a goal from that location on the ice. Your question, Matt, has several variables for us to consider. The assessment of a penalty shot is designed to restore a scoring opportunity which was lost as a result of a foul being committed by the offending team. On the initial part of this play all parameters of the rule were satisfied for referee Wes McCauley to impose a penalty shot once Gustav Nyquist was clearly fouled from behind by Matt Carle and denied a reasonable scoring opportunity. I am certain that McCauley intended to award a penalty shot to Nyquist had he not scored or other criteria were to develop during the delayed call. As Wes McCauley demonstrated, the referee must delay the call until the offending team gains possession of the puck. If during this delay, Gustav Nyquist or any other Red Wing player had regained a reasonable scoring opportunity (or opportunities) yet no goal resulted, the initial penalty shot call would revert to the assessment of a minor penalty. The next to impossible shot by Nyquist would not have qualified as him regaining a "reasonable scoring opportunity." A penalty shot would have been awarded if the puck had not gone in the net as specified in rule 24.8 (iii)—The fact that he (Nyquist) got a shot off does not automatically eliminate this play from the penalty shot consideration criteria. If the foul was from behind and he was denied a "more" reasonable scoring opportunity due to the foul, then the penalty shot should be awarded. Allow me to answer your direct question, Matt, and aalso play out some other scenarios that could result, with the understanding that if the foul for which the penalty shot was awarded was such as to normally incur a minor penalty, then regardless of whether the penalty shot results in a goal or not, no further penalty shall be served. NMD Outlet Italia. . (Major, Match and Misconduct penalties would be assessed in addition to the penalty shot.) In addition, no penalty being served on the clock will expire when a goal is scored on a penalty shot. • If the penalty shot infraction committed by Matt Carle was such to incur a double-minor penalty (i.e. high-stick resulting in injury), the first minor penalty would not be assessed since the penalty shot was awarded to restore the lost scoring opportunity. The second minor penalty would be assessed and served regardless of whether the penalty shot results in a goal. It would be announced as a double-minor penalty and the player would serve two minutes only. (This would also be the assessment in the case where Nyquist (or Wings) scored prior to play being stopped to award the penalty shot resulting from a double minor infraction.) • If a Tampa player (or bench) was assessed an additional minor penalty on this play (separate from the hooking minor infraction to Carle that resulted in the penalty shot), the Tampa minor penalty would be served on the clock regardless of whether the penalty shot results in a goal. • Although it is not currently in the Officials Situation Handbook, conventional wisdom states (until further advised), if both of the above situations were to be satisfied (double minor plus a second minor penalty) one minor of the double minor infraction is eliminated to restore the lost scoring opportunity and the stand alone minor infraction is also assessed and served. A 5 on 3 manpower situation would occur regardless of whether the penalty shot results in a goal. (Presently no "Captains choice" extended in this scenario to allow for team option to play one man short for 4 minutes or two men short for 2 minutes). • Should two penalty shots be awarded to the same team at the same stoppage of play (two separate fouls), only one goal can be scored or awarded at a single stoppage of play. Should the first penalty shot result in a goal, the second shot would not be taken but the appropriate penalty would be assessed and served for the infraction committed. Thanks for the thought provoking question, Matt. I trust the answer pretty much covers all the bases for you. Cmon Ref extends Happy Birthday Wishes to Gordie Howe, who is 86 years young today. My bet is that "Mr. Hockey" would have also been able to score from the angle that Gustav Nyquist did last night in Hockeytown, USA. Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '

    • DAVIE, Fla. Custom Chicago Bears Jerseys . - Loosening up for their first training camp practice, the Miami Dolphins high-stepped sideways up and down the field while House of Pains song "Jump Around" blared on the loudspeakers. Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes took in the scene and allowed himself a long yawn. With the first game more than six weeks away, the Dolphins tempered their excitement Friday regarding the 2014 season. Even so, every team is undefeated and optimistic in July, and the Dolphins were no different as they opened camp. "We want to play deep into January and February," quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. "Our goal is to win the division and play in the playoffs. Anything less than that is not up to our standards." Actually, thats way above the Dolphins recent standards. They havent made the playoffs since 2008, which is also their most recent winning season. They needed to win only one of their final two games last season but lost both by a combined score of 39-7 to finish 8-8. Tannehill and coach Joe Philbin are back for their third season with the team, but a woeful offensive line has been overhauled, theres more depth at receiver and running back, and the defence has the potential to be excellent. "We want to win. Thats what were all here for," new general manager Dennis Hickey said. "Were really excited about this team and what theyre going to be able to accomplish." Some prognosticators rank the Dolphins among the NFLs worst teams, but owner Stephen Ross anticipates post-season play. "I dont think I start any season without wanting to make the playoffs," Ross said. "If you dont have those expectations, you shouldnt be in the game. You own a team because you want to create a winner." On a 90-degree day, Philbin was already on the hot seat, and Ross was asked if the coach must make the playoffs to keep his job. "Im not going to say here he has to, because I can understand what the headlines would be," Ross said. "I like Joe Philbin very much. Im expecting Joe Philbin to be here a long time. But every year you want to see improvement." The Dolphins desperately need a better locker-room culture after a troubled relationship between offensive linemen Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin led to a bullying scandal that sent the franchise reeling. Incognito and Martin are gone, and the Dolphins brought in outside consultants for training sessions with players to foster better leadership. Centre Mike Pouncey, implicated in the scandal, said the culture will be much healthier this season. "Coach Philbin and Mr. Ross have done a bunch of things to change that," Pouncey said. "Right now were heading in the right direction. Everyone has bought into the way we want it done around here." As anticipated, Pouncey (hip) and running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) began camp on the physically unable to perform list. Both worked on the side Friday, and while Pouncey is expected to miss at least a couple of games, he said hes ahead of schedule in his recovery. Moreno, who signed a $3.275 million, one-year contract after a breakout season with Denver last year, is expected to join practice sometime during camp. Every other player passed his conditioning test. Defensive end Dion Jordan practiced and will be allowed to play in exhibition games, even though he has been suspended for the first four games of the season after testing positive for a stimulant prohibited by the NFL. Receiver Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson were back on the field after recovering from knee injuries last season. Koa Misi remained at middle linebacker after moving there from the outside as an off-season experiment deemed successful. The first practice was predictably sloppy. With Pouncey out, quarterback Ryan Tannehill dropped at least three snaps. He misfired deep to Mike Wallace — a frequent occurrence last year — the first time he threw long, but they later connected on a 40-yard throw that brought a cheer from spectators. While the stands were only half full, season-ticket sales are up, and the first three home games are projected to be sellouts. "Miami wants to support a winner," Ross said. "We start winning, well have a lot more support, and there will be a lot more enthusiasm." ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Aaron Lynch Jersey . It certainly isnt a coincidence that Dwight Howard has scored at least 20 points in each game of the winning streak. Cody Parkey Jersey . The Brazilian-born strikers brace drew him level with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the leagues leading scorers with 17 goals apiece through 16 rounds. "The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals," Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest.TOBLACH, Italy - Marit Bjoergen of Norway picked up her second World Cup win of the weekend as she triumphed in the womens freestyle sprint in Toblach on Sunday, while compatriot Ola Vigen Hattestad was victorious in the mens event. In the last race before the Sochi Olympics, Bjoergen followed up her win in the 10-kilometre classical race on Saturday by beating World Cup sprint leader Denise Herrmann of Germany by 0.43 seconds for her fifth victory of the season. Fellow Norwegian Ingvild Flugstad Oestberg was third, 1.46 seconds behind. "I think my legs were a little bit tired after yesterday," Bjoergen said. "I didnt feel very fast in the qualification. But each heat I felt a little biit better and was able to advance each time. Cody Parkey Bears Jersey. I was able to get myself into good position off the downhill in the final to be able to get the win today." Kikkan Randall of the United States was fifth. Hattestad finished 0.69 seconds ahead of teammate Eirik Brandsdal. Josef Wenzl of Germany was third, 0.94 seconds behind. There was no change in the overall standings, with leader Martin Johnsrud Sundby absent. "This was a really great victory for me today," Hattestad said. "I knew I had strong legs and excellent skis so I am happy to win. I was told after the Norwegian championships that I wasnt ready for Sochi but I think today I showed that I am." Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China JerseysWholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '

Our honour." and who represent the clubs three core values: Unity, Winning, and Honour. Based on input from a selection of alumni, the first four inductees will be Bob Lenarduzzi, Carl Valentine, Domenic Mobilio, and Andrea Neil. "When we decided to launch our Ring of Honour, we were looking for people who have left a lasting legacy," said Rachel Lewis, Whitecaps FC chief operating officer. "Bobby, Carl, Domenic, and Andrea represent exactly what this club has always stood for and each of them have made remarkable contributions to our club and community. Theyre exceptionally deserving of being the first four inductees." Lenarduzzi will be the first to be inducted during the next home match on Saturday, May 3, as he joins the rest of his teammates from the inaugural 1974 Whitecaps team. This match will celebrate the first game in Whitecaps history, played on May 5, 1974, against San Jose Earthquakes – nearly 40 years to the day. "Im humbled to be inducted into the Ring of Honour," said Lenarduzzi. "There have been amazing soccer moments in this city over the years and Im very grateful to have been a part of many of those. Throughout it all Ive had incredible teammates, so it will be fantastic to have several of them with me on May 3." Neil will be inducted on August 10 at BC Place, 10 years after she captained Whitecaps FC to their first United Soccer Leagues W-League championship on August 8, 2004. Two years later, Neil was again captain as the Caps won a second W-League championship on August 6, 2006, at Swangard Stadium. Valentine will be honoured at the September 10 match. On September 9, 1979, a 21-year old Valentine joined his teammates in front of 100,000 people at the championship parade in downtown Vancouver to celebrate the clubs Soccer Bowl triumph. Finally, on October 4, members of the Mobilio family will be at BC Place for the induction of the late striker.

Primarily a left back, Lenarduzzi also sits 13th all-time in club scoring with 34 career goals. In 1978, he was voted as the only Canadian ever to win NASL Player of the Year and in 1979 he helped the club win the NASL Soccer Bowl title.

Internationally, the native of Vancouver, BC, played with Canada at the countrys only FIFA World Cup appearance in 1986. Today, after 40 years, Lenarduzzi remains with Vancouver Whitecaps FC as club president. Carl Valentine One of the all-time fan favourites in Vancouver professional sports and a member of the Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame, Carl Valentine is the clubs all-time leader in appearances with 409 and fourth all-time in goals scored with 65. The English-born talent arrived in Vancouver for the start of the historic 1979 season and became a key contributor to the clubs run to the NASL Soccer Bowl. Valentine would stay in Vancouver until the NASL folded following the 1984 season and would go on to join West Bromwich Albion back in England. The winger represented Canada in the 1986 FIFA World Cup and in 1987 he returned to Vancouver to become a key member of the 86ers team that went on to win a remarkable four straight CSL championships from 1988 to 1991.

    • (SportsNetwork. Shaquille ONeal Celtics Jersey .com) - Best record in the NBA. Check. Best road record in the league. Check. A franchise-best winning streak. Check. The Golden State Warriors have it all together and they will shoot for a 16th consecutive win Sunday against the New Orleans Pelicans in the Big Easy. Golden State opened a three-game road trip with Saturdays 105-98 victory against the Dallas Mavericks, so the record winning streak could be at risk on short days rest. The Warriors became the first team to reach 20 wins (20-2) and Stephen Curry led three players with at least 20 points in Big D. Curry finished with 29 points and handed out eight assists, and is shooting 50 percent from the floor and averaging 24.0 points and 7.6 assists over his past 10 games. Klay Thompson netted 25 points and made 5-of-11 3-pointers, while Draymond Green delivered 20 points and eight boards. Fifteen wins in a row, its hard to fathom, said Thompson. This is a special group. The Warriors have been special on the road, going 12-1 with nine straight wins outside of Oakland. Golden State has won 30 of the last 39 road games. It is first in field goal percentage (48.0) and third in scoring with 106.7 ppg. Opponents are scoring 95.7 ppg against the Warriors. Golden State hasnt lost since Nov. 11 versus San Antonio and will close the road trip Tuesday at Memphis. The Pelicans recently disposed of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers with Fridays 119-114 victory, but it came with a price. Young star Anthony Davis suffered a bruised chest in the first quarter and did not return. Davis played only seven minutes, scoring eight points and grabbing one rebound, and is questionable Sunday. The Pelicans picked up the slack without Davis in the lineup and were led by Tyreke Evans 31 points and 10 assists. Ryan Anderson hit 8-of-14 3-pointers en route to 30 points and Jrue Holiday chipped in 16 points and eight assists. James paced the Cavs with 41 points on 17-of-24 shooting, but New Orleans shot 55.7 percent and hit 12-of-28 from beyond the arc. To beat a team like that without AD (Davis) and have as many contributions across the board was special, Pelicans coach Monty Williams said. Anderson felt the same way about the teams play without Davis. This was a game that we knew that we had to fight extra hard without (Davis), Anderson said. This was a huge win for us so Im really happy with the way we played. Davis, who spent Friday night at a hospital, is averaging 24.3 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.7 blocks. New Orleans has won three of four games and improved to 7-2 at home. The homestand will conclude Tuesday versus the Utah Jazz. The Pelicans and Warriors will play the second of four meetings Sunday, and Golden State posted a 112-85 win on Dec. 4 out west. Curry had 19 points and 11 assists in that one, and Davis pumped in 30 points and 15 boards. Golden State has won eight in a row against New Orleans and is unbeaten in the previous six trips to the Big Easy. Sundays game will feature some of the best long distance shooters in Curry, Thompson and Anderson.Robert Parish Celtics Jersey . -- Damian Lillard couldnt believe when he got a clear look at the rim. John Havlicek Celtics Jersey .

    • PHOENIX - Relishing no longer being in the villain role, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is painting his teams Super Bowl opponent as occupying that position. Stephen Curry Shoes Clearance .He also doubts that the Patriots will be punished by the NFL if they are found guilty of doctoring footballs in the AFC championship game.I think the perception is the reality, Sherman said Sunday after the defending champions arrived in Phoenix. It is what it is. Their resume speaks for itself. The past is what the past is. Their present is what their present is. And, will they be punished? Probably not.The All-Pro cited NFL Commissioner Roger Goodells close relationship with New England owner Robert Kraft as his main reason for being skeptical.Not as long as Robert Kraft and Roger Goodell are still taking pictures at their respective homes. He was just at Krafts house last week for the AFC championship, Sherman added. You talk about conflict of interest.But as long as that happens, it wont affect them at all. Nothing will.Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Saturday the team followed every rule to the letter in preparing footballs on game day. New England arrives in Phoenix on Monday as the leagues investigation into under-inflated balls continues.This is the second Super Bowl in which accusations of cheating have followed the Patriots. During their unbeaten 2007 regular season, they were fined $250,000 and Belichick was docked $500,000 for spying on New York Jets coaches signals. New England lost to the New York Giants in that Super Bowl.For many of the Seahawks, the focus on football deflation is a non-topic. Quarterback Russell Wilson brushed aside questions about the subject the way he escapes onrushing defenders. All-Pro safety Earl Thomas admitted he knew nothing at all about it: Ive been in my own little world. I dont watch TV too much.Sherman, as always, was not reticent about discussing it.I think more people might be inclined to root for us, to see history made, Sherman said, noting the Seahawks are seeking to become the first repeat champions in a decade — when the Patriots did it. I guess the controversy gives us a little edge in that respect.When it was revealed that some of the Patriots footballs were under-inflated in the AFC championship, Sherman said I didnt think it was a big deal at the time.Its a big deal, Sherman added, laughing.The edge that Sherman plays with has helped him become one of the premier players in pro football. It also catapulted him into that villain role last year after his rant against 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree following the NFC title game.He didnt understand the reaction.To be painted villains I guess you need to do something heinous, he said, and I didnt. You learn a lot about people around you and about society.While he was at it, Sherman also criticized the NFL for not coming through on the booty he is entitled to for being selected to the Pro Bowl. Players who make the Super Bowl are replaced for the Pro Bowl.Only thing Im disappointed about is that we didnt get our gifts from the Pro Bowl, he said. Which is kind of dumb; the NFL is the only league that punishes the players who actually make the all-stars by not giving them their gifts.He believed the gifts included watches and stuff.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Curry Shoes China .

This one may have been more rewarding for Celtics coach Brad Stevens. "I wouldnt want to go through it again, but thats exactly what our team needed," the first-year NBA coach said on Friday night after Boston blew a 17-point lead and then came back to beat the Knicks 90-86. "We needed to have a lead, lose it, be backed up against the wall and figure out a way to win." Avery Bradley scored seven of his 13 points in the fourth quarter, hitting a 3-pointer with 2:38 to play to give the Celtics the lead for good. Jared Sullinger had 19 points and six rebounds, all but one basket in the first half when the Celtics opened a 17-point lead, and Courtney Lee scored 18 points to help Boston snap a two-game losing streak and hold onto first place in the woeful Atlantic Division. Carmelo Anthony scored 26 points and Andrea Bargnani had 22 for the Knicks. But Anthony missed a jumper that could have tied it after Bradley gave Boston the lead, and then he was blocked by Jeff Green with a minute to play. "Carmelo got going like Carmelo can get going, and it didnt really matter who was guarding him," Stevens said. "But Jeff went to a different level in the last eight minutes. And that was encouraging to see, because I really thought he did a great job." Kenyon Martin had eight points and seven rebounds before leaving struggling to the bench in pain with about 9 minutes left with an abdominal injury. He did not return. Other than Amare Stoudemire, who scored 18, the Knicks bench totalled four points as they lost for the third time in four games and their 12th in their last 15. "Our bench guys, theyve got to feel good about coming into the game and playing and producing," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. "Our bench is just as important as the guys who start the game. Theyve got to undersstand that and be ready when they come in. Wholesale Curry Shoes. " The victory came five days after the Celtics led the Knicks by as many as 45 points in New York in a 114-73 victory that was the biggest blowout in the NBA this season. This one seemed headed the same way when Boston went on a 21-2 run at the end of the first quarter and start of the second to open a 17-point lead, but the Knicks chipped it down to six at the half and then tied it at 59 with 7:15 left in the third on Iman Shumperts 3-pointer. The Knicks had an 11-point lead before Boston scored 10 in a row, getting 3-pointers from Vitor Faverani and Bradley to make it a one-point game. New York led 84-81 when Brandon Bass, who had 10 points and eight rebounds, made a basket and then Jordan Crawford hit Bradley for a 3-pointer that put Boston ahead with 2:38 to play. After trading misses, Crawford found Faverani underneath to make it 88-84, and Green blocked Anthony with 1 minute to play. Bargnani hit a jumper from the foul line to make it a two-point game, but Green drove to the basket on J.R. Smith and made a right-handed layup from the left side of the basket as Stoudemire unsuccessfully flailed at the ball. Green missed the free throw, but Anthony missed an off-balance 3-pointer at the other end with 4 seconds left and Bradley grabbed the rebound. "You have to realize youre away, on the road and these teams arent going to give up," Smith said. "This team is No. 1 in our division for a reason." Notes: Boston first-round draft pick Kelly Olynyk returned after missing 10 games with an ankle injury. He had four points and four rebounds in 14 minutes, and also one highlight blocked shot... NY PG Raymond Felton missed his second straight game with a strained left hamstring that is expected to keep him out two to three weeks. Shumpert, who is nursing a bruised left knee, played 23 minutes and scored three points. Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '

    • WASHINGTON -- The Charlotte Bobcats have leapfrogged another team, increasing the odds that their return to the playoffs wont be a token appearance. Scarpe Balenciaga Offerta . The Washington Wizards have dropped a spot and are having issues. Or, as centre Marcin Gortat put it: "The way we play right now, we aint going to beat anybody, including Milwaukee." The Bobcats blew a 20-point, first-half lead to the Wizards on Wednesday night before winning 94-88 in overtime, moving Charlotte into position for the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference. "To go from basically the worst team going to the six seed, I mean, it shows a lot," said guard Kemba Walker, who scored the only field goal in overtime for either team. The win left both teams at 40-38 with four games remaining, but Charlotte won the season series 3-1 and therefore holds the tiebreaker. Both teams want to stay out of seventh or eighth to avoid a first-round series against the two conference powerhouses, the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers. The Bobcats have been in the playoffs only once before, when they were swept in the first round in 2010. "We getting better as a team, we two games above .500," said Al Jefferson, who had 20 points and 18 rebounds. "But does it really matter where were at for seeding-wise? No, we just happy to be in the mix." Walker made a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws in the extra session, and Jefferson added two free throws to account for all of the Bobcats scoring. Charlotte went 1 for 7 from the field in overtime, while Washington was 0 for 8 and got its only point from a free throw by John Wall with 34 seconds remaining. Walker finished with 17 points and 12 assists for the Bobcats, who have their longest winning streak since March 2010. "Hes got courage," Charlotte coach Steve Clifford said. "He wants the ball late and hes not afraid to take the big shot." Wall had a candidate for most underwhelming triple-double of the season -- 14 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists -- and Gortat finished with 27 points and 14 rebounds for the Wizards, who were nearly run out of their own building in the first half for the second straight game and are limping toward the finish line of their first playoff season since 2008. Among Washington coach Randy Wittmans reviews: "To have no more energy or drive or enthusiasm than we showed in that first half, its disappointing. ... I was just not expecting to come out and go through the motions. ... When you dont put effort in, youre not going to have (a) good showing." Added veteran Gortat: "I guess were immature and just not experienced enough and I guess everything starts in the practice. The first few minutes were walking and just fooling around and this is how you start a game." Such comments put the focus on young All-Star Wall, who went 6 for 18 from the field and committed five turnovers. Wall disagreed with his coachs "go through the motions" assessment. "I dont feel that way," Wall said. "I feel like we competed. ... The last couple of games we havent been able to knock down shots." Wall had called this game the most important of the year, but he also made a whirlwind overnight trip to Texas on Monday to watch Kentucky lose the NCAA championship game. He said that had "nothing to do" with his performance. "I practiced yesterday and had a good day," Wall said. "Came here and had a game today. Its not like I went the night before." Trevor Ariza, who has been battling the flu, went 0 for 6 from the field for the Wizards. Washington was 1 for 15 from 3-point range. The Wizards again made defence optional in the early going, echoing their beatdown by the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. But Washington hit its stride in the third quarter and took its first lead of the game on Bradley Beals 15-foot jumper with 5:28 to play. Jefferson forced overtime with a layup that tied the game with 3.2 seconds remaining. Wall didnt get a shot off as time expired in regulation. Notes: Wizards F Nene, back after missing six-plus weeks with a sprained left knee, was understandably rusty. He missed all four of his free throws and finished with 10 points in 17 minutes. ... It was Walls third career triple-double and second this season. ... Bobcats F Josh McRoberts returned after missing three games with a sprained left ankle. Scarpe Balenciaga a Poco Prezzo . Alvarez hit his first career home run, pitched six innings and hurt his right hamstring while running the bases in the Miami Marlins 4-3 win over the Chicago Cubs. Outlet Balenciaga Online . Fourteen players were suspended last summer by Major League Baseball as part of the Biogenesis drug scandal, ranging from All-Stars to also-rans.VANCOUVER, BC – With 6:52 seconds remaining in Thursday’s game in which the Vancouver Canucks were clinging to a 3-2 lead, Jannik Hansen got whistled for a questionable interference call after he got tangled up with San Jose’s Adam Burish. Considering the ice already seemed titled in the Sharks favour given the way they had stormed the Canucks net from the opening face-off, it seemed like the Hansen penalty would likely be the break San Jose needed to tie the game. That, however, wasn’t the case. As it has been through the first 14 games of the season, the Canucks penalty kill once again went about its business. Rising to the challenge in a pivotal moment, the Canucks managed to successfully run off the two minutes of short-handed time and the frantic five minutes that followed, and somehow escaped the Shark Tank with a one-goal victory. Despite giving up a power play goal to Logan Couture in the second period, the Canucks finished the night three for four on the penalty kill, pushing their recent run of success to 20 of the last 22 times they’ve been shorthanded. Overall, they sit sixth in the National Hockey League killing penalties with an efficiency rate of 87.3%. That’s up four percent from their final position a year ago when they started strongly on the penalty kill then, as with so many other facets of their game, faded badly in the second half of the season. The Canucks have needed to be strong on the penalty kill in the early going this season as only three teams in the league have been short-handed more than the 55 times they’ve been sent to the penalty box. Goaltending plays a huge role in any successful penalty kill and Ryan Miller has been spectacular in that regard. Including Thursday night, he has been beaten only four times while shorthanded. Chris Tanev (3:12) and Alex Edler (3:07) lead the way as the only Canucks skaters to average over three minutes of short-handed time per game, with Dan Hamhuis (2:39), Brad Richardson (2:29), Chris Higgins (2:10), Kevin Bieksa (2:05) and Nick Bonino (2:02) all over the two-minute mark. Scarpe Balenciaga Outlet. “It’s kind of a mindset,” Richardson said of successfully killing penalties. “I do a lot of it and it’s something I do take a lot of pride in. The specialty teams are a huge part of the game and we’ve taken a look at the stats and the more times we win the special teams battles we win the games. Definitely it’s a huge part of our success and every time you get out there you’re trying to focus on keeping the puck out of your net.’ In crunch time on Thursday night, the Canucks were able to make that happen to preserve their 10th victory of the young season. The challenge – and it will be a big one -- will be to keep the penalty kill sharp the remainder of the season. But right now, given the learning curve the Canucks are dealing with trying to implement new head coach Willie Desjardins’s systems in all areas of the ice, it appears the penalty killers are catching on quickly. “To me, there’s maybe a tiny bit of structure change but most of penalty killing is attitude and wanting to outwork the power play,” Richardson said about the changes Desjardins has made while playing a man or two short. “There might be some subtleties on how you fore-check or how you line up when they come at you, but I think most of it comes down to hard work.” Without question, the Canucks penalty killers are putting in the effort and that hard work has been rewarded. One look at Vancouvers lofty perch in the overall standings a month into the new season is proof of that. Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '

    • TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays won ugly Tuesday night, overcoming sloppy play and a blown six-run lead in a 7-6 walkoff victory over the New York Yankees. Sammie Coates Texans Jersey . Jose Reyes made two throwing errors -- including a key miscue in New Yorks five-run seventh inning -- but made up for it by scoring the winning run in the bottom of the ninth. New York made the final mistake as Yangervis Solarte threw wide to first base after Melky Cabrera laid a bunt down the third-base line. That allowed Reyes, who led off with a double, to trot home with the winning run to the delight of the 34,206 fans at Rogers Centre. "It wasnt a real well-played game, but the name of the game is winning," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. Dioner Navarro hit a three-run shot for Toronto (44-35), which moved 2 1/2 games up on second-place Baltimore in the American League East. The Orioles dropped a 4-2 decision to the Chicago White Sox. The Yankees fourth loss in a row moved them 3 1/2 games behind Toronto. Reliever Adam Warren (1-4) shouldered the loss for New York (39-37). "It was sloppy on both sides," said Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira. "That was an ugly game to watch. If youre a fan, you should get your money back." The Blue Jays will go for a sweep of the three-game series Wednesday night. Navarro put the Blue Jays on the board in the fourth inning with his blast off New York starter David Phelps. Toronto tacked on three more runs in the fifth inning when Colby Rasmus laced a shot that hit the top of the wall in right field. Two runs came across on the play and Edwin Encarnacion rounded third when Rasmus broke for second base. The cutoff man threw to Derek Jeter at second, who had Rasmus caught in a rundown. With Encarnacion leaning for home, Jeter decided to hang on to the ball and go for the tag on Rasmus. However, he couldnt catch up to the Toronto centre-fielder, who dived back to the bag at first base as Encarnacion scored. Jeter rebounded with a solo homer in the sixth inning and the Yankees took advantage of two Toronto errors in the seventh to tie the game. Brian Roberts got things started by hitting a two-run homer off Toronto starter Mark Buehrle to cut the Blue Jays lead to 6-3. With Brett Gardner at second base and Jeter at first, Jacoby Ellsbury drove a single to left field off Dustin McGowan. Cabrera tried to get Gardner at the plate but the throw went to the backstop allowing the run to score on the error as both runners advanced. McGowan got Teixeira to hit a chopper to second base but Reyes was short with his throw to Encarnacion at first and two more runs crossed the plate. It gave Reyes even more incentive when he came up to bat in the ninth. "I tried to make something happen after that mistake,"Reyes said. "They tied the game there in that situation. I have to make a better throw than that. It is what it is. Like I said, when I came up in the ninth inning I just tried to make something happen. "I put a good swing on the ball and hit a double with nobody out." Reyes also gave credit to Cabrera for making a great play that forced the errant throw. "He laid down a perfect bunt," he said. "In that situation we need that." It was the 13th multi-hit game of the season for Reyes, who ended an 0-for-19 skid with a single in the fifth inning. "Joses a driven individual," Gibbons said. "Plus hes overdue, his bat has cooled off. So it was just a matter of time. He dunked that one in earlier in the game, but hes been missing his pitches. "Hes been a little too aggressive. But perfect timing for it, you know." Encarnacion was accidentally elbowed in the back of the head by Teixeira in the seventh inning. The Toronto slugger was face down on the dirt for several seconds as a hush came over the crowd. Gibbons and a team trainer came out onto the field to check on him and Encarnacion eventually shook it off and stayed in the game. He had a fat lip afterwards but said there were no other issues. "Right now I feel good, I feel great -- 100 per cent," he said. Aaron Loup relieved McGowan in the seventh and got Carlos Beltran to hit a comebacker for the third out. The Blue Jays loaded the bases in the eighth inning but reliever Dellin Betances struck out Munenori Kawasaki to end the threat. Casey Janssen (2-0) came on in the ninth inning and gave up a single to Gardner, who eventually moved to third base with two out. With the crowd on its feet, Janssen fanned Teixiera with a 72 mile-per-hour curveball. "Thats big to win that game," Gibbons said. "We dont win that one last year, I know that." Notes: Lind fouled a ball off his sore right foot in the seventh inning but stayed in the game. He was wearing a protective cover over his cleats but was noticeably slow while running to first on a ground ball. ... Injured Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow, who had been rehabilitating his hand injury in Arizona, returned to the team Tuesday. He tore a tendon sheath in his throwing hand on May 2. Morrow played catch for 10 minutes before the game but no timeline is set for his return. ... Toronto third baseman Juan Francisco turned 27 on Tuesday. ... The Blue Jays have held sole possession of first place in the A.L. East for 33 straight days. The teams previous longest stretch came in 1993, the last year Toronto won the World Series. ... Buehrle received a standing ovation as he walked to the dugout after being pulled in the seventh inning. He worked 6 2/3 innings and allowed eight hits and four earned runs while striking out three. It was his 445th consecutive start without a stint on the disabled list -- the longest active streak in the major leagues. ... Buehrle also leads all major-league pitchers in pace, taking an average of 17.0 seconds between pitches. ... Phelps worked five innings, allowing eight hits, six earned runs and a walk while striking out seven. ...

This is not some token job for a prominent, popular former player. All of those areas need a lot of work, so Molitor is going to be busy. "Hes certainly got a history and knowledge and a high baseball IQ," general manager Terry Ryan said.BROOKLYN, NY -- On the Toronto Raptors bus ride to practise Saturday, talk wasnt about the upcoming game against the Brooklyn Nets. It centred around the Los Angeles Clippers and owner Donald Sterling. The NBA is investigating a report of an audio recording in which a man identified as Sterling tells his girlfriend not to bring black people to games. "Guys more than anything are saying, Something has to addressed, something has to be said," said Raptors forward Steve Novak, who spent two seasons (2008-10) with the Clippers. The league said it is in the process of authenticating the validity of the recording posted on TMZs website. In the recording, the man questions his girlfriends association with minorities. TMZ reported the woman, V. Stiviano, who is of black and Mexican descent, posted a picture of herself with Lakers Hall of Famer Magic Johnson on Instagram -- which has since been removed. "Theres definitely not a place for it in the NBA, in this game," Novak said. "What makes it so strange is hes been an NBA owner for that many years (33), hes not someone who isnt associated with African Americans, someone whos benefited that much from African Americans. . . theyve been such a positive part of his life. "Sometimes theres very successful people who arent very good people," Novak added about the American business magnate. The man in the recording asked Stiviano not to broadcast her association with black people or bring black people to games. He specifically mentioned Magic Johnson on the recording, saying "dont bring him to my games, OK?" "I will never go to a Clippers game again as long as Donald Sterling is the owner," Johnson responded on Twitter. He also said the alleged comments are "a black eye for the NBA" and felt bad that friends such as Clippers coach Doc Rivers and point-guard Chris Paul had to work for Sterling. "I dont blame him. I wouldnt either," DeMar DeRozan said of Johnsons decision to boycott games. DeRozan, who grew up in Compton just south of downtown Los Angeles, said he felt for the Clippers players, who lead their Western Conference playoff series against Golden State 2-1. "Honestly, especially right now in the playoffs, theyre trying to win their series so its going to be interesting to see (how the players handle the situation),&quuot; DeRozan said. Tyrann Mathieu Texans Jersey. Landry Fields added: "Right now theyre kind of in a tough position. Theres still playoffs to be played. But it is sad that now this has become an issue rather than Clipper basketball." DeRozan was asked if he could play for an owner like Sterling. "I dont know man, I dont know. I dont know," the all-star said with a shake of his head. "Me personally, I dont stand for nothing like that. It would be tough, itd be tough." Added Raptors coach Dwane Casey: "If its true, its a sad commentary on our society . . . on our society as a whole, being an African American myself." Novak said the allegations are no surprise, players have known about previous discrimination cases against Sterling. He said the NBA must take action. "I think its personal to each and every guy," Novak said. "More than anything I dont think the league can sit back and say it didnt happen, if it did. "Theres no way that should be tolerated. I dont think in any workplace in the world you can speak that way about anybody, and in our league especially." New NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in a press conference before the Grizzlies playoff game in Memphis that the audio is "disturbing and offensive." "All members of the NBA family should be afforded due process and a fair opportunity to present their side of any controversy, which is why Im not yet prepared to discuss any potential sanctions against Donald Sterling," Silver said. "We will, however, move extraordinarily quickly in our investigation." Novak added its a huge black eye to the NBA ownership group. "The owners in the NBA are such an impressive group of people," he said. "Look at all the owners and what theyve done, and all the good things that they do, and so for something like that to come out, to be grouped as an NBA owner type-thing is unfortunate." Sterling has been involved in several lawsuits over the years. Novak played for the Clippers when the owner was sued by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2009. Sterling agreed to pay US$2.73 million to settle allegations by the government that he refused to rent apartments to Hispanics and blacks and to families with children. Sterling is the longest-tenured owner in the NBA since Lakers owner Jerry Buss died last year. Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '

    • Winnipeg Goldeyes manager Rick Forney announced on Wednesday the signing of veteran infielder Jacob Blackwood to a contract for the 2014 season. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Jan-Oblak-Jersey/ . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. In 126 games with San Antonio last season, the product of Kansas City, Missouri hit .259 with seven home runs and 61 RBI. He was named the starting third baseman for the South Division in the Texas League All-Star Game. "Jake is a big addition to our ball club," Forney said. "Hes the type of infielder that provides a big impact bat to our lineup. Hes been an impactful player in our league before and were hopeful he can be an impact guy for the Goldeyes in 2014." Prior to being signed by the Padres, Blackwood had a monster year for the Kansas City T-Bones in 2010. He hit .331 with 31 home runs and 86 RBI in 99 games. His home run and RBI totals led the Northern League, while his batting average was third in the league behind Kevin West and Juan Diaz of the Goldeyes. Blackwood also led the NL with 82 runs scored, 271 total bases, a .636 slugging percentage and a 1.014 OPS. Blackwood, who has experience at all four infield positions and the two corner outfield positions, was drafted by the Florida Marlins in the 16th round of the 2006 MLB amateur draft. He played four-and-a-half seasons in their system before being released and signing with the T-Bones.  The Goldeyes now have 12 players signed for the 2014 season, including six pitchers and six position players. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Thomas-Lemar-Jersey/ .

BEIJING -- Kevin Koes Calgary rink inched closer to a playoff spot at the mens world championship of curling, improving to 7-3 in the round-robin portion of the tournament with a 11-5 rout over Germany on Thursday. Koe took an early 9-1 lead through four ends and sailed home with the win over Germanys Johnny Jahr to assure at least a tiebreaker berth on the final day of round-robin play. The Canadians will complete the round robin with a game against Scotlands Ewan MacDonald (3-6) later Thursday. A win in that game would nail down, at worst, a berth in the Page 3-4 game. A victory, combined with a loss from Japans Yusuke Morozumi (7-3) would put Canada in the Page playoff 1-2 game against Norways Thomas Ulsrud. "Its good news," said Koe. "Weve come through the three-four game a few times with this team (including the 2010 Tim Hortons Brier and the 2014 Alberta mens championship). We just have to get in there. And once we get in there, thats usually when our best games show up. "Were pretty much down to our last life here, so we have to come out against a good Scotland team thats probably going to be playing pretty loose, and take care of business." Canada took control early on against Germany. Koe made a precision come-around tap to sit four and block off the path to the four-foot. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Koke-Jersey/. German last-rock thrower Felix Schulze needed to make a hit-and-roll for a single, but he wrecked on a guard to give Canada a stolen four-ender. "That nice little hack-weight shot Kevin made in the second, that was good for his confidence," noted lead Nolan Thiessen. "Weve wrecked a few times on those, so to make one and really put the pressure on him to make a really good shot against four early in the game is good. "Youll get mistakes when that happens, and it got us a little bit of mojo and hopefully we can carry it over this afternoon." After Germany was forced to a single in the third, Canada put the victory away with Koe drawing for four in the fourth end. The Germans would cut into the lead with three in the fifth and one more in the sixth, but Canada scored two in the seventh to prompt handshakes. The Germans (4-6) are out of playoff contention. Norway locked up first place Thursday morning with a 6-4 win over Pete Fenson of the United States (3-7), while Sweden (6-4) took an 11-4 win over Japan. A Japanese victory would have all but locked up a spot in the one-two game.

Ben Roethlisberger and Terrell Suggs have spent well over a decade staring across the line of scrimmage, the longtime Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and the relentless Baltimore Ravens linebacker both knowing they will meet multiple times, often in violent fashion.Their collisions — much like the rivalry between their two teams — have been memorable. So has the back and forth between the two.And while the NFL appears to be in the midst of an identity crisis of sorts as it tries to legislate some of the brutality out of the game — particularly when it comes to how defenders can (and can't) hit quarterbacks — Roethlisberger doesn't expect much to change on Sunday night when the Steelers (1-1-1) host the Ravens (2-1).It will be physical. It will be tight. And at no time will Suggs or any of his teammates yell "I'm sorry" at Roethlisberger before hitting him as the microphones caught Tampa Bay's Gerald McCoy doing during Pittsburgh's victory last Monday night."I don't think you ever (get) an apology from a Raven," Roethlisberger said with a laugh.No apologies are necessary while playing what Steelers coach Mike Tomlin calls "AFC North football," code he uses to describe a series built on respectful fierceness."We've been going at it with these guys it seems like forever now Buccaneers Chandler Catanzaro Jersey ," Tomlin said before adding, "you learn not to go into this game with any preconceived notion."Good idea. The reality is both sides have evolved. Baltimore's previous two visits to Heinz Field have ended dramatically. Antonio Brown's "Immaculate Extension" in the final seconds secured a division title for the Steelers on Christmas night in 2016. Chris Boswell's late field goal capped a wild 39-38 Pittsburgh victory last December."They've turned into little mini-shootouts, and they've been a lot of fun to be a part of," Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said.The Steelers and the 36-year-old Roethlisberger remain one of the NFL's most dynamic offenses even with All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell's extended absence while waiting to sign his franchise tender.It's a group the Ravens appear to be ready to join thanks in part to a revitalized Flacco. Pittsburgh is the NFL's seventh-highest scoring team through three weeks. Baltimore is fifth.The nature of the rivalry may have changed through the years. The edge that emerges when they face each other has not."That's why we enjoy playing a physical game against these guys," Flacco said. "We have to make sure they feel like that, because it's more than just winning and losing a game. It's beating a division opponent up a little bit, so they still have to feel the effects the next week."PRIME-TIME PLAYERSIt's hardly surprising the Steelers shook off a winless start by thriving under the Monday night lights in Tampa.Pittsburgh seems to save its best for national showcases. Roethlisberger is 21-3 in regular season night games at Heinz Field. The Steelers have won nine straight appearances on Sunday night Cheap Mike Evans Jersey , seven of them at home."You know the whole world is watching and you want to give it everything you have," Roethlisberger said.NO SMITHThis will be Baltimore's final game without cornerback Jimmy Smith, who's serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancers.Smith has long been an integral part of the Ravens defense, but they've done just fine without him. Over three games, Baltimore has allowed a total of just nine points after halftime."You're always chasing perfection," Ravens coach Harbaugh said. "But (the cornerbacks) are playing very well."Maybe, but the Steelers offer a significant step up in class. While Brown remains as effective as ever Cheap Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey , he's hardly the only option at Roethlisberger's disposal. While Brown is averaging a pedestrian 8.8 yards per grab, four of his teammates — including second-year wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster — are averaging 13 yards per catch or more.RED (ZONE) HOTThe Ravens are the first team in NFL history to start a season with touchdowns on each of their 12 trips into the red zone."It's a huge amount of pride for us," lineman James Hurst said. "There's a lot of times when wins and losses in the NFL come down to scoring seven as opposed to three."Diversity is the key: Baltimore has six rushing scores and six passing TDs after entering the red zone. The Ravens went 3 for 3 last week against Denver. Dating back to last year's finale against Cincinnati, Baltimore has 15 touchdowns in 16 trips inside the opponents' 20.BRING THE NOISEPittsburgh's secondary has looked like a bit of a hot mess early, allowing Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes to throw for six touchdowns in Week 2 and Tampa Bay's Ryan Fitzpatrick to go over 400 yards last Monday.The cure until the defensive backfield figures it out is providing pressure up front. The Steelers forced four straight turnovers against the Buccaneers, three of them coming with Fitzpatrick under significant duress, though the more mobile Flacco presents a slightly different challenge."We know if we can get in his face Kwon Alexander Jersey , disrupt his timing it's going to help the DBs out," Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt. "We brought it from all over against Tampa Bay and that's what you need to do against a veteran guy like Flacco."AP Sports Writer David Ginsburg in Baltimore contributed to this report.

    •  Ed Valentine of Big Blue View about the Carolina Panthers upcoming game against the New York Giants. Read on for his opinion on the demise of Eli Manning and the potential of Saquon Barkley. This game may not be as easy as some of us had hoped. You can find my answers to his questions here.Cat Scratch Reader: Barkley looks like he has had a successful start to his season. Is he living up to his draft position?Big Blue View: Saquon Barkley is a terrific player. He has hit the 100 yards from scrimmage mark in all 4 games and Sunday can become only the third player in NFL history to reach that mark in his first five games (Kareem Hunt Youth Mario Addison Jersey , 7 and Adrian Peterson, 5). So, yeah, no complaints. The Giants as a whole, though, haven’t been able to consistently strike the balance between running and passing, between giving the ball to Barkley and getting it to Beckham. That’s a work in progress.CSR: Be honest, how far past his prime is Eli Manning?SB Nation’s FanPulse is a survey of NFL fans across the league.BBV: I really don’t know. There are Giants fans who have been over Eli for years. Shoot, some were over him before he won a second Super Bowl. He’s completing a lot of passes http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-devin-funchess-jersey , but the offense isn’t going anywhere. We’ve spent a lot of time and effort of the Eli topic at Big Blue View. There’s blame on him, Pat Shurmur and the offensive line for the offensive struggles thus far. I think we will find out the answer to that question over the course of the season. The Giants have banked their hopes on him being able to get the job done for another year or two. We’ll see if they were right.CSR: Olivier Vernon is back. How big is that for the Giants?BBV: Well, I can’t say with 100 percent certainty that Vernon will be back. It looks like that will be the case, but we thought that last week, too. Vernon is their best pass rusher, so getting him on the field would be a major plus. As Shurmur said “when you have a fresh body that has the talent, the skill, and abilities of a pass rusher, it helps your defense.”CSR: The Giants record in close games this year is eerily reminiscent of Panthers teams from years past. Is this because of a consistent and identifiable issue or are they just a comedy of errors like the Browns?BBV: The Giants have just struggled to play good offense. Period. They are averaging 18.25 points and have not reached the 20-point mark in all three of their losses. It’s really that simple.CSR: What is your score prediction for this week and how does it happen?BBV: I hate to do it but I’m going to hold my prediction for Sunday at Big Blue View. If the Giants are going to win they are going to have to play better offense Shaq Thompson Jersey , generate more big plays. On defense, they are going to have to find a way to deal with the running of Cam Newton.The Carolina Panthers have a bottom-tier pass rush according to Pro Football Focus Pro Football Focus released their ranking for each team’s pass rush heading into the 2018 season, and their opinion of the Panthers is... not favorable.Let’s take a look, shall we?My takeI think this ranking is lower than it should be. I’m not saying the Panthers have the best defensive line ever (I mean, they do, but I’m not saying that) or that they should be ranked No. 1 overall, but to put them at No. 22 is a little unfair. Using their very own numbers, having the No. 9 pressure percentage in 2017 should give them a better outlook in 2018 than No. 22 overall. Yes, Julius Peppers is 38 years old and had shoulder surgery in the offseason (he’s not human so this really shouldn’t count against them) Authentic C.J. Anderson Jersey , and yes, there is some questionable depth at defensive end. Those are fair points against the Panthers, but I think they’re good enough to crack the top 15, at least.What do you think, Panthers fans? Is No. 22 a fair ranking? Where would you rank them?

    •  The Panthers defense yesterday was as much the story of their loss to the Falcons as it was the story of their victory over the Cowboys a week ago. Tevin Coleman became the first back in 22 games to rush for over 100 yards against Carolina. Matt Ryan did his best Cam Newton impression to the tune of 2 touchdowns. Luke Kuechly missed a tackle that allowed Tevin Coleman to rush for 27 yards down the Panthers’ sideline http://www.carolinapanthersteamonline.com/daryl-williams-jersey , y’all. That isn’t going to happen every day.The optimistic takeaway from yesterday isn’t that the Panthers held Julio Jones to under 300 yards receiving, its that the Falcons won because the Panthers defense had a one in a million fluke game. Its that the offense is still struggling to figure out how to use its best players — or to best use its players — and yet they were still a few drive-stalling drops away from taking control of that game.Take a step back and look at the coverage leading up to Sunday. We couldn’t stop talking about the injuries to the Panthers offense. Greg Olsen is missing and freshman offensive coordinator Norv Turner was tasked with making a game plan around an offensive line whose healthy members couldn’t get jobs as stunt doubles if Keanu Reeves decided to remake the Replacements. We aren’t talking about that today because they did a serviceable job. That is phenomenal.Newton threw the ball from clean pockets a few more times (read: even once) than I expected. Christian McCaffrey and CJ Anderson had room to run sometimes. The problem was that the same could be said for Ryan and the Falcons. It would have been nice if the Panthers had recorded even a single sack.The defense seemed a step behind the Falcons on every play that the Falcons didn’t run perfectly. The Falcons ran too many plays perfectly. It was not a combination the Panthers were able to beat — except that they were. Newton threw one of the most accurate passes I’ve seen in his career on a Hail Mary attempt that would have seen most passers range between bouncing the ball short of the end zone and sending it way out of bounds. Newton’s ball bounced off of DJ Moore’s arm in the middle of three defenders. If you thoughtMoore caught that ball at first then you are not alone.The only time the offense was truly frustrating was when they spent the opening half racking up false start penalties. I’m looking at you, Torrey Smith. Between those penalties and the drops by your teammates, Newton was once again let down by his team. Punch one more game like that and he gets a free, disappointing lunch at Texas Roadhouse.The trick to remember is that Smith is a veteran. He’ll get that under control. The Panthers don’t come nearly as close in their comeback without a few of his catches. Jarius Wright, Anderson, and Ian Thomas share as much blame as he does.The Panthers were able to beat the Falcons yesterday Youth Ian Thomas Jersey , they just didn’t. The combination of things it took the Falcons to pull off that victory is a rare thing and that’s great news for the Panthers in a division where the Bucs may actually be a team again. The Falcons may have won, but they didn’t look like they could have played much better. The Panthers have obvious leaps and bounds they can take.Division games are always crazy and this one took place in week 2. Teams hardly know who they are at this point. All we know is that the Panthers have displayed, at times, a dominant defense and a competent offense. Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl with only half of that combination. Joe Flacco did too. Do any of you really think Newton is in such a lowly tier as either of those guys? Of course you don’t. Newton’s is averaging more than 65% completions this year. I hear that’s elite.The Panthers have all of the pieces to play meaningful football through January and guys besides that are busy getting healthy to shore up the obvious weaknesses. We know they can play defense. We know Cam Newton is great at more than throwing passes for his receivers to drop. The start of a season is always weird as injuries and realities define the tension between what a team wants to do and what it is capable of doing.For now, the recipe for success in the Carolinas seems pretty simple. Newton needs to keep being himself. Kuechly needs to learn how to tackle. DJ Moore needs to continue his progression from week to week. The Bengals will teach us a lot about the reality of this team and the bye week will come just in time for the Panthers to address that before the rest of the season.Is it time to panic about the Carolina Panthers left guard situation? You’re probably familiar with the old saying, “If you have two quarterbacks, you actually have none.”The 2018 Carolina Panthers are apparently trying to create a new saying when it comes to the offensive line: “When you have five left guards Authentic Ryan Kalil Jersey , cross your fingers and pray one of them can become a legitimate starter.”All-Pro left guard Andrew Norwell used to create gaping holes for his running backs to run through during his time in Charlotte. Norwell’s departure has now created a gaping hole on the offensive line that is yet to be filled. While it is still very early to be projecting depth charts for the upcoming season, several fairly credible websites have done just that. Here is the jumble of confusion that is the Panthers left guard situation: Projected Depth ChartsSourceLG1LG2SourceLG1LG2Five sites are predicting three different starters in Tyler Larsen, Amini Silatolu, and Jeremiah Sirles. Throw in Taylor Moton and Greg Van Roten as LG2 on some depth charts, and the Panthers have up to five players in the mix for the job. The natural question is to ask who should start, and why? Here is some basic information on each of the potential starters:LG Player DataPlayerCareer Starts2016 Off. Snaps2017 Off.聽Snaps2017 PFF Grade2017 PFF RankPlayerCareer Starts2016 Off. Snaps2017 Off.聽Snaps2017 PFF Grade2017 PFF RankMy vote goes for Tyler Larsen. He has been competent over the last two seasons filling in at center for the oft-injured Ryan Kalil. At this point “competent” is probably the best the Panthers can hope for at left guard, and Larsen can be just that. From a long-term perspective Authentic Luke Kuechly Jersey , Larsen may be Kalil’s replacement at center after Kalil retires at the end of this season and starting him this season could assist in that important transition. As for LG2 I’d love to see Taylor Moton and Jeremiah Sirles battle it out. Moton has only played 64 offensive snaps in two seasons after being drafted in the second round in 2016. It’s about time the Panthers gave Moton some reps to see if he can live up to the expectations of his lofty draft status. Sirles is new to the Panthers and seems perfectly capable of being a backup if things don’t work out with Moton. I’d put Silatolu and Van Roten clearly behind the other three players mentioned above. Frankly, Silatolu has struggled so much over the years that I was surprised Carolina signed him for the 2018 season. The prospect of him playing meaningful snaps in 2018 is both baffling and terrifying, especially if it comes at Moton’s expense again. Van Roten pretty much is what he is at this point in his career after bouncing around the NFL and CFL since 2012. So, CSR community, who do you think should start at left guard in 2018? Sound off in the poll and comments section below.

    • MCL Miami Dolphins linebacker Mike Hull has an MCL injury Cheap Jerome Baker Jersey , but is not expected to miss the entire season, according to a report from the Palm Beach Post’s Joe Schad. The injury occurred in the second quarter of the team’s preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when a goal line pile up rolled into the side of Hull’s knee. He was assisted off the field before being carted into the locker room.Entering his fourth season in the league, Hull originally signed as an undrafted free agent with Miami coming out of Penn State in 2015. He appeared in three games as a rookie, then played in all 16 in 2016, primarily on special teams with one start at linebacker. Last season, he appeared in all 16 games with three starts Josh Sitton Jersey , playing both special teams and linebacker. He record 26 tackles with one fumble recovery on defense, along with nine special teams tackles.This preseason, Hull is listed on the depth chart as a third-team, outside linebacker, but he could be a key depth option for the team in the regular season if he makes the 53-man roster and can return healthy. It is time for the Miami Dolphins to put the Week 4 embarrassment the New England Patriots caused them in the past and move forward. Later today, the Dolphins will hit the field at the Cincinnati Bengals’ Paul Brown Stadium in an effort to stay atop the AFC East and move to 4-1 on the year. As I did last week Womens Kenyan Drake Jersey , I decided to take a look around the internet to see what the straight-up winners picks for today’s game would be.

According to NFL rules, teams must declare seven players inactive for each game, dressing just 46 players of their 53-man roster.

    • With the Ravens derailed season paused for the bye week http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/sam-koch-jersey-cheap , the Baltimore Beatdown writers continue to predict the rest of the NFL matchups in Week 10. as top-tier teams are separating themselves further from the pack as the season progresses.Current standings:Kyle A. and FrankSage and readersVasJakeZachKyle B.DustinLoganAn analysis of the Baltimore Beatdown staff picksConsensus winnersThe Saints defeat the Bengals (NO -5.5)The Chiefs dominate the Cardinals (KC -16.5)The Patriots continue their winning ways against the Titans (NE -6.5)The Chargers beat the struggling Raiders (LAC -9.5)The Packers get back on track against the Dolphins (GB -9.5)The Rams rebound with a win over the Seahawks (LAR -9.5)Baltimore will need help from New Orleans to keep the Bengals from distancing themselves in the wild card race. Coming off a marquee win over the Rams, the Saints are one of the hottest offenses in the league and added another weapon in wide receiver Dez Bryant this week. Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City should make slight work of the anemic Cardinals. In typical New England fashion, the Patriots slow start is a thing of the past and their win streak should extend to seven after Week 10. Oakland has been a disaster in Jon Gruden’s return, and the Chargers are an under recognized 6-2. Despite the Packers dropping the Rodgers v. Brady battle, the Dolphins are limping into Week 10 with an ugly win over the Jets. While the Rams undefeated campaign has come to an end, Seattle has been inconsistent and is a disappointing .500 on the season.‘Lone wolf’ picksJake is the only writer to predict the Bills to win against the Jets (NYJ -6.5)Logan is alone in his confidence that theCowboys beat the Eagles (PHI -7.0)Even though the Jets only have one more win than Buffalo, the gap between Sam Darnold and the Bills quarterback room is vast and should propel the Jets to victory this week. Trading for Amari Cooper is simply not enough to fix the Cowboys decline in the NFC East standings. With the fan base calling for major changes in Dallas, the Eagles are well positioned to pick up a critical divisional win.

DustinLoganBB ReadersVote for every Week 10 matchup!Jimmy Smith’s suspension could open the door for the Ravens’ bubble players Minutes before the Ravens’ third preseason game, the Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec reported that cornerback Jimmy Smith is facing a multi-game suspension. This was significant news for Baltimore as Smith is their top cornerback Youth Matt Skura Jersey , but it appears they have the depth to handle his absence for multiple weeks. When Smith missed the final four games of the 2017 season, the Ravens’ secondary did not struggle to the level that they did in previous years without him. The loss of Smith provided an opportunity for Marlon Humphrey to receive more snaps, and he took full advantage of that opportunity. Humphrey was impressive in his first NFL start against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14. He only allowed six completions for 37 yards on 12 targets, including two receptions for seven yards to Antonio Brown on five targets, per Pro Football Focus. With Humphrey likely becoming the team’s top cornerback in this scenario, Brandon Carr would be the No. 2 cornerback. He was inconsistent for much of the 2017 season, but he is an ironman. Carr has started every game in his 10-year NFL career. The return of Tavon Young as the team’s primary slot cornerback paired with the versatility and emergence of Maurice Canady and Anthony Averett would give Baltimore a talented secondary despite Smith’s absence. The Ravens did bring in cornerback Bashaud Breeland, which could show that they may not be content with the cornerback position without Smith. However, given the strong play of Anthony Averett in the preseason, their perception of their depth at this position could change. Since suspended players do not count towards the 53-man roster http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/brent-urban-jersey-cheap , the Ravens would seemingly have an extra roster spot. With players like Kamalei Correa, Robert Griffin III, Breshad Perriman, Tim White, Janarion Grant, Darren Waller, Maxx Williams, Bronson Kaufusi, and Albert McClellan all on the roster bubble, the Ravens could keep an additional player at a different position because of this suspension.7th receiverThe Ravens have an interesting dilemma at the wide receiver position. Outside of the top four receivers Cheap Terrell Suggs Jersey , no player has emerged in the competition. Jordan Lasley, Jaleel Scott, Breshad Perriman, Gus Edwards, Tim White, Zach Sieler, and Janarion Grant are all fighting for two, or maybe three, spots. With Scott and Lasley likely safe, the seventh receiver spot could be awarded to the winner of the returning competition. They could keep Perriman Cheap Mark Andrews Jersey , who has posted the best numbers out of all of the bubble wide receivers this preseason and let Chris Moore handle the returning duties. Third quarterbackThe Ravens have not kept a third quarterback on their roster since 2009, but Griffin III could change that. He has been solid throughout the preseason, and if Baltimore does not feel comfortable with Lamar Jackson being the only backup, he will be on the team. Fourth tight endMark Andrews, Nick Boyle, and Hayden Hurst are all destined for the 53-man roster. After those three, the Ravens could keep a fourth tight end, which they have done in previous seasons, but it was unclear if they would be afforded that luxury this year. Maxx Williams has had a quiet preseason thus far, but he has flashed potential in years prior and could be worth keeping. Darren Waller has a high ceiling given his rare height Youth John Brown Jersey , speed and athleticism, but his off-the-field issues have plagued him. He could add a different element to Baltimore’s passing game.Sign up for Baltimore Beatdown FanPulse!Versatile linebackerIt would be a surprise if Kamalei Correa and Albert McClellan both missed the 53-man roster. With this new roster spot, the Ravens could keep both of them. They each provide value on special teams and versatility as they can play outside or inside linebacker. Fourth running back Kenneth Dixon had an impressive preseason performance against the Colts, but his track record shows that he is far from reliable at this point. Given his injury history, the Ravens may opt to keep a fourth running back for added insurance. Baltimore could sign a free agent running back or keep Gus Edwards, who has had a solid preseason. Extra defensive line helpThe Ravens have plenty of depth on the defensive line, and the final spot is likely between Zach Sieler and Bronson Kaufusi. Baltimore could opt to keep both players for extra depth as they have done this in previous seasons. Kaufusi also showcased his versatility as he can play outside linebacker as well. He has had a strong preseason, while Sieler has also flashed at times as well.

    • The Ravens are looking to get back on track when they host the undefeated Denver Broncos. Over the course of two games Baltimore Ravens T-Shirt , Baltimore has shown both brilliance and ineptitude. Coming off of a divisional road loss, how will the Ravens respond in Week 3?Sage’s predictions:The Ravens will score a defensive touchdown.Sign up HERE to take our weekly Ravens survey.In order to energize the home crowd and provide Joe Flacco and the offense with a little breathing room, Baltimore’s defense will intercept Case Keenum and return it for six. A franchise that has made turnovers their calling card will find the end zone for the first time this season, having recorded two picks in 2018 that were not run back for a score. John Brown will be Baltimore’s go-to offensive weapon. Ozzie Newsome signed John Brown this offseason to complement Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead IV. Through two games, Brown leads the Ravens in receiving and is averaging 19.4 yards per reception. Crabtree has been targeted 16 times — a team high — to Brown’s 14. In Week 3, anticipate Flacco to look to Brown more often Baltimore Ravens Hats , as he has proven he can haul in tough balls in tight coverage. Vasilis’ predictions:Lamar Jackson will not see the field in Week 3.Thus far, the Lamar Jackson package has been largely ineffective. If the goal was to give the opposition another facet to game plan for, then that has already been accomplished. The Ravens will aim to get Joe Flacco and Alex Collins in rhythm, at the expense of the rookie quarterback’s playing time.Kenny Young will record double digit tackles and an interception.The fourth-round rookie has been mighty impressive throughout the preseason and the first two weeks of the year. The Ravens scheme is designed to funnel the ball carrier to the inside linebackers, which should allow Young to rack up tackles. Case Keenum will underestimate Young’s speed and toss an interception underneath or in the flat.Dustin’s predictions:Alex Collins will rush for 100 yards and two touchdowns.Through the first two games of the season, Collins has only received 16 carries for 48 yards and one touchdown.The Ravens will show that they are in fact committed to the run game when they face the Broncos. Collins will no longer be neglected Baltimore Ravens Hoodie , and he should receive at least 15 touches, amassing 100 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. The offensive line will hold Von Miller in check.Baltimore’s offensive line struggled immensely versus the Bengals pass rush in Week 2, particularly when matching up with Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap. Miller is potentially the best pass rusher in the game, but the Ravens will find a way to contain him. Regardless of whether James Hurst or Orlando Brown Jr. starts at right tackle against Denver, expect tight ends Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams to consistently provide help by chipping Miller on the edge. Baltimore deployed this tactic against Khalil Mack last season, and he was held to zero sacks.Frank’s predictions:Mark Andrews will be the Ravens leading receiver.The Broncos are fairly stout in pass coverage on the outside. However Customized Baltimore Ravens Jerseys , they tend to struggle against opposing tight ends. In the first two weeks of the season, they faced Raiders tight end Jared Cook and Seahawks tight end Will Dissly. Cook and Dissly combined to catch seven passes for 154 yards. Ravens third-round pick Mark Andrews, who caught his first career touchdown last week, could be in for a productive outing. The Ravens hold Phillip Lindsay in check. Undrafted rookie running back Phillip Lindsay has burst onto the scene this season, leading the Broncos in rushing after two weeks. He has rushed for 178 yards on just 29 carries, good for an average of 6.1 YPC. Lindsay has separated himself from Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker in the Denver backfield. However http://www.ravensfootballauthentics.com/alex-lewis-jersey-authentic , the Ravens have had over a week to scout him and recognize he has become a key cog in their offensive attack. Don Martindale should have a game plan in place to contain Lindsay, and it will work effectively. Lindsay will be held to under 50 yards from scrimmage. Have a bold prediction? Join the conversation in the comments section. The Ravens aren’t asking Lamar Jackson to do too much.And so far, he is satisfactorily meeting those low expectations.Baltimore’s up 13-7 at halftime on the Bengals, in Jackson’s first start in place of the injured Joe Flacco.Jackson is 8-of-11 passing for 76 yards passing (6.9 yards per attempt). He’s also carried the ball 10 times for 64 yards (6.4 yards per attempt), and the fact he’s running nearly as much as he’s trying to throw is telling.Jackson has made a few plays, including a 23-yard hookup to John Brown which set up a 56-yard field goal from Justin Tucker just before the break.But mostly http://www.ravensfootballauthentics.com/brandon-williams-jersey-authentic , they’re asking him to not make mistakes. On a day when they’ve limited the Bengals to 106 yards in the first half, that could be enough. Cincinnati clearly misses A.J. Green more than Baltimore misses Flacco, as Andy Dalton‘s averaging 4.8 yards per pass attempt (7-of-16 for 76 yards).

    • As Week 9 of the NFL season arrives Youth Maurice Canady Jersey , the AFC North remains in a heated competition. The Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens are both right behind at 4-4. The Cleveland Browns have seemingly fallen out of contention and fired head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley this week. Baltimore and Pittsburgh engage in another installment of their classic rivalry on Sunday, while Cleveland faces the seemingly unstoppable Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati enjoys a bye week.Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2-1)The Steelers have won three straight games since their 26-14 home loss to the Ravens in Week 4. After a rocky start to the season, Pittsburgh now has a chance to extend their division lead by getting revenge on Baltimore this afternoon.In their last matchup, it was wide receiver John Brown who torched the Steelers secondary with three catches for 116 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Joe Flacco found little resistance, throwing for 363 yards and two touchdowns. Containing Brown and pressuring Flacco will be key for Pittsburgh’s defense, with both starting tackles having been declared out for the Ravens.On offense, the Steelers must commit to the running game with James Conner. Conner only rushed for 19 yards on a measly nine carries against Baltimore previously. Establishing the run will help to open up wide receivers Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster in the passing game. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger must protect the football as well against the Ravens stingy defense. Baltimore Ravens (4-4)After losing two straight and falling to 4-4, Baltimore now hosts Pittsburgh in a game with huge postseason implications. The Ravens defense shut down the Steelers offense for the most part in their last matchup, shutting them out in the second half. Cornerback Jimmy Smith has been struggling since returning from a torn Achilles Cheap Joe Flacco Jersey , and Marlon Humphrey has missed several games with a hamstring injury. Humphrey will be vital in stopping Brown if he is able to play on Sunday. Meanwhile, Baltimore’s defense will need to contain Conner on the ground and force Roethlisberger to win the game through the air.On the other hand, establishing the run game on offense will be pivotal to free up the deep passing attack. With Ronnie Stanley and James Hurst both out, the offensive line must protect Flacco at all costs. Outside linebacker T.J. Watt currently has seven sacks on the year, so the Ravens must find a way to neutralize him on the edge. Taking advantage of Pittsburgh’s linebackers in coverage should be a focus of Baltimore’s offense.Cleveland Browns (2-5-1)After firing Hue Jackson and Todd Haley, interim head coach Gregg Williams must rally his team against the 7-1 Chiefs.Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has led Kansas City to the third ranked offense. Mahomes is the favorite for MVP so far this season, throwing for 26 touchdowns in just eight games. Mahomes is also surrounded by an excellent supporting cast on offense. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill is possibly the most dangerous speed threat in the league, Travis Kelce is possibly the best tight end, Sammy Watkins is a big Cheap C.J. Mosley Jersey , strong receiver on the outside and Kareem Hunt is one of the best running backs in the game in just his second year. The Browns defense, ranked 28th in the NFL, is going to have an uphill battle in stopping Mahomes and the Chiefs offense.On the flip side, Kansas City’s defense is ranked 31st in the NFL, allowing 26.5 points per game. While Cleveland’s offense is only ranked 24th in the league, Mayfield should be able to exploit the Chiefs pass defense, currently ranked 29th. Wide receiver Jarvis Landry will play a big role in the Brown’s offense finding success.Ravens injury report: C.J. Mosley among 4 players listed as questionable The Baltimore Ravens are preparing for their week three matchup with the Denver Broncos, but they could be without several key players on the defensive side of the ball. On Thursday, the Ravens injury report featured three players — Hayden Hurst Womens Justin Tucker Jersey , Willie Henry, and Michael Pierce —who did not practice. One day later, there were no changes. Pierce missed the entire week of practice, and his status for Sunday is still unknown.Hurst and Henry will be ruled out for this week, and it appears unlikely either player will suit up against Pittsburgh next week. Tim Williams returned to the practice after missing Thursday’s session due to an illness. Despite missing Wednesday’s practice because of an illness, Alex Collins has practiced for the second consecutive day. The biggest concern for Baltimore is inside linebacker C.J. Mosley, whose status Sunday looks bleak after missing Friday’s practice. It was initially reported that Mosley suffered a bone bruise against the Cincinnati Bengals, which usually keeps players on the sidelines for several weeks. Update: 3:10 pm ETThe Ravens have ruled out Anthony Averett, Hayden Hurst and Willie Henry Joe Flacco Jersey , while Michael Pierce, Matthew Judon, C.J. Mosley, and Ronnie Stanley are listed as questionable.
