But they did lock up one of their most critical offensive players Thursday, agreeing to a multiyear extension with center Max Unger, a source confirmed to ESPN.The deal is worth more than $7 million per year, according to NOLA.com, which was first to report the extension.Unger, like Brees, was scheduled to become a free agent at the end of the season.The deal was probably in the works regardless, but the Saints needed to free up some salary-cap space after signing free agent Paul Kruger earlier this week.Unger, 30, has been a terrific addition since coming to New Orleans last year in the Jimmy Graham trade with the Seattle Seahawks. Unger didnt make his third Pro Bowl, but the coaching staff named him the Saints 2015 offensive MVP. He also seemed to be missed in Seattle as much as he was welcomed in New Orleans.Unger, whho is 6-foot-5, 305 pounds, is even more critical to the Saints offensive line this year, because theyre struggling so much at the guard position this preseason.

He was named first-team All-Pro in 2012.Earlier in training camp, Saints coach Sean Payton spoke about Ungers athleticism as well as his leadership.In his second year were receiving some of the leadership that comes with him, Payton said. Hes passionate about the game. Hes a great teammate. I know hes well respected in that locker room. Thats a really good player for us to have.

A roundup of the past weeks notable boxing results from around the world:Saturday at PhiladelphiaDanny Garcia TKO7 Samuel Vargas - Fight recap Welterweight Records: Garcia (33-0, 19 KOs); Vargas (25-3-1, 13 KOs)Rafaels remarks: As expected Garcia, 28, fighting in his hometown for the first time in six years, ran roughshod over the Toronto-based Vargas, 27, of Colombia, in exactly the kind of mismatch everyone expected. Ecco Mens Cool Gtx . This was a total waste of time, but Garcia, out since winning a vacant welterweight world title against Robert Guerrero in January, took this nontitle bout for one reason, because he said he needed a tune-up fight to get ready for the real fight already scheduled. That will come March 4 in a title unification showdown with Keith Thurman (27-0, 22 KOs), 27, of Clearwater, Florida, who was ringside working as an analyst on the Spike telecast. What Thurman saw was Garcia destroy Vargas, who got knocked down on a right hand in the second round and battered until referee Gary Rosato waved off the fight at 2 minutes, 17 seconds of the seventh round, just as Vargas corner was waving a white towel in surrender. What was more entertaining than the fight was Garcia and Thurman talking trash and going nose to nose after the fight.Jarrett Hurd TKO6 Jo Jo Dan - Full undercard recap Junior middleweight Records: Hurd (19-0, 13 KOs); Dan (35-4, 18 KOs)Rafaels remarks: Hurd, 26, of Accokeek, Maryland, is an exciting prospect who opened a lot of eyes with his impressive 10th-round knockout of then-unbeaten Oscar Molina on CBS on the Keith Thurman-Shawn Porter undercard in June. In his first fight since, Hurd was once again impressive as he manhandled replacement opponent (and much smaller) Dan, a 35-year-old southpaw from Romania who fights out of Montreal. Hurd did damage with an accidental low blow in the third round, but even without that, Dan, coming off a 14-month layoff, had no chance. Hurd imposed his will from the beginning and landed many punishing right hands on the former welterweight world title challenger. When Hurd nearly dropped him with a right hand in the sixth round and continued to fire away, trainer Howard Grant threw in the towel and referee Benjy Esteves Jr. ended the carnage at 1:06.Javier Fortuna W10 Omar Douglas - Full undercard recap Lightweight Scores: 96-93 (twice), 95-94 Records: Fortuna (31-1-1, 22 KOs); Douglas (17-1, 12 KOs)Rafaels remarks: In June, Fortuna, an extremely fast 27-year-old southpaw from the Dominican Republic, lost his secondary junior lightweight belt by upset 11th-round knockout to Jason Sosa in Beijing. Fortuna, who has a rematch clause and is expected to face Sosa next, won his second fight in a row since the upset, as he outpointed Douglas, 25, of Wilmington, Delaware, in a fast-paced fight. There were a lot of fouls and holding, and referee Shawn Clark had his hands full. He doled out several warnings, but Fortuna and Douglas still put on a pretty good show. That said, Fortuna, who got off the deck after a first-round knockdown on a clean left hand to the chin, rightfully got the nod in a very close fight.Saturday at Monte CarloJason Sosa W12 Stephen Smith Retains a junior lightweight title Scores: 117-110, 116-112, 116-111 Records: Sosa (20-1-4, 15 KOs); Smith (24-3, 14 KOs)Rafaels remarks: In by far the best fight of the weekend, Sosa and Smith waged a terrific slugfest that was competitive throughout even if Sosa, 28, of Camden, New Jersey, got the well-deserved nod to retain his secondary belt for the first time following his upset 11th-round knockout of Javier Fortuna to win it in June. This was a very hard-fought fight in which Sosas physical strength and pressure style made the difference. He dropped Smith with a left hand in the second round and opened a bad cut over his right eye just before the end of the third round. The fourth round was a fierce toe-to-toe battle that could be a round of the year honorable mention, after which the ringside doctor took a close look at Smiths damaged eye. It was the second time that Englands Smith, 31, one of the four fighting Smith brothers (along with former junior middleweight titlist Liam, Paul and Callum), came up short in a world title fight. Two fights ago, in April, he dropped a decision to Jose Pedraza.Luis Ortiz W12 Malik Scott - Fight recap Heavyweight Scores: 120-105, 120-106, 119-106 Records: Ortiz (26-0, 22 KOs); Scott (38-3-1, 13 KOs)Rafaels remarks: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. This was just an absolutely hideous fight and an utter waste of time because Scott did not come to fight, as has been the case for most of his frustrating and forgettable 16-year career. While King Kong -- to many the most avoided man in the heavyweight division -- tried to hunt him down with his powerful left hand, and he did knock him down three times (but not very dynamic knockdowns), all Scott did was run, clinch, flop to the mat, complain about imaginary fouls and try to survive. Scott, 36, of Philadelphia, looked petrified the entire fight, knowing that at any moment a missile from Miamis Ortiz, a 37-year-old southpaw Cuban defector, could end his night. Ortiz, recently stripped of an interim title for ignoring his mandatory defense against Alexander Ustinov, landed nearly as many punches (146) as Scott threw (155) and scored knockdowns in the fourth, fifth and ninth rounds, but even they were not enough to make this fight interesting. Ortiz is due back in action Dec. 10 on the Anthony Joshua-Eric Molina card in Manchester, England, and whatever happens it cant be worse than this.Jamie McDonnell W12 Liborio Solis Retains a bantamweight title Scores: 117-111, 116-112, 115-113 Records: McDonnell (29-2-1, 13 KOs); Solis (25-5-1, 11 KOs)Rafaels remarks: Horrible scoring alert! McDonnell, 30, of England, was lucky to retain his belt for the fifth time thanks to hometown cooking against Solis, 34, a former junior bantamweight world titleholder from Venezuela. This will go down as one of the most controversial decisions of the year, especially given the absurdly wide 117-111 scorecard turned in by Robert Hoyle. Solis looked to have gotten a raw deal. Even Sky Sports, McDonnells U.K. broadcaster, had Solis, despite a 6-inch height disadvantage, winning the fight. McDonnell did land some nice body shots to slow Solis down a bit in the middle of the fight and he hurt him in the ninth round. But Solis, with his nonstop pressure, appeared to have the better of the action, including when he hurt McDonnell with a right hand in the 11th round. Dont count on a rematch. McDonnell, according to Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, probably will move up in weight.Martin Murray W12 Nuhu Lawal Super middleweight Scores: 117-110 (twice), 116-111 Records: Murray (34-4-1, 16 KOs); Lawal (23-1, 13 KOs)Rafaels remarks: Murray, 34, of England, is 0-2-1 in middleweight world title fights and 0-1 in super middleweight title bouts, and still eyeing that elusive title belt. He was supposed to fight former titleholder Arthur Abraham in a rematch of Abrahams split decision win against him in 2015, but he dropped out with an elbow injury. Then Russian replacement opponent Dmitry Chudinov dropped out about a week before the fight because of a virus and was replaced with Lawal, 34, a native of Nigeria fighting out of Germany. Lawal, really a junior middleweight/middleweight, gave a solid account of himself, but his punches lacked snap and were usually wide against the more compact and skillful Murray, who rocked Lawal in the first round and was never in any danger despite being penalized one point by referee Russell Mora for leading with his head in the 12th round.Saturday at Ciudad Valles, MexicoJose Argumedo TKO3 Jose Antonio Jimenez Retains a strawweight title Records: Argumedo (19-3-1, 11 KOs); Jimenez (17-6-1, 7 KOs)Rafaels remarks: Argumedo, 28, of Mexico, traveled to Japan in December 2015 and won a ninth-round technical decision against Katsunari Takayama to claim a 105-pound world title. Argumedo made his second defense against Jimenez, 33, of Colombia, and took him out impressively to stop his eight-fight unbeaten streak. Argumedo scored two knockdowns in the third round, first with a huge overhand right hand that bounced Jimenez off the ropes before he went down and then moments later when referee Mario Gonzalez credited him with one when he pounded Jimenez into the ropes, which held him up. Jimenez was in rough shape and Argumedo continued to hurt him with right hands until Gonzalez stepped in to wave it off.Saturday at Magdeburg, GermanyRobert Stieglitz W12 Medhi Amar Wins European light heavyweight title Scores: 116-112 (three times) Records: Stieglitz (50-5-1, 29 KOs); Amar (33-5-2, 16 KOs)Rafaels remarks: Germanys Stieglitz, 35, a two-time super middleweight world titleholder, moved up to light heavyweight in 2015 and won his third in a row (since losing a world title fight to rival Arthur Abraham in their fourth meeting) to claim the European title in a steady if unspectacular performance in a relatively low-action fight. Amar, 34, of France, was making his first defense after winning the vacant title in May.Friday at MiamiYunieski Gonzalez TKO1 Maxwell Amponsah Light heavyweight Records: Gonzalez (18-2, 14 KOs); Amponsah (11-3, 10 KOs)Rafaels remarks: In July 2015, Gonzalez burst on the world stage with a tremendous performance against former light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal on HBO, but Gonzalez was robbed in a decision loss. Then Gonzalez, 31, a Cuban defector based in Miami, dropped a majority decision to contender Vyacheslav Shabranskyy. But now Gonzalez has won two fights in a row on the comeback trail, both by first-round knockout, including this blowout of Amponsah, 30, a 2012 Olympian from Ghana fighting out of New York. Amponsah lost his second fight in a row by knockout. Ecco Exceed Low . With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position.

Two pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line of the April 15 race in an area packed with fans cheering the passing runners. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured, including at least 16 who lost limbs.PHILADELPHIA -- Whoever Chip Kelly chooses to be the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback may have plenty of success by doing one simple thing: handing the ball to LeSean McCoy. While Michael Vick, Nick Foles and Matt Barkley will get most of the attention during training camp, McCoy could be the most important part of Philadelphias offence. The 25-year-old running back is looking to get back to his All-Pro form of 2011. "I want to be more dominant," McCoy said. "The last few years Ive had good years, but I want to be dominant. I think in this offence, theres the ability to run the ball more, where I can really take over a game. There have been flashes of it in the past, but having the ability to do it day in and day out, game in and game out, I think thats a different story." The Eagles held their first full squad practice Friday, and the pads will be on for the first time Sunday when the team moves across the street to Lincoln Financial Field and welcomes in 60,000 fans. They might be treated to an unfamiliar sight if Kelly emphasizes the run game, as expected. Its no secret that former Eagles coach Andy Reid had a pass-first philosophy. The offence ran the ball just 38.2 per cent of the time last year. Their highest average during McCoys first four seasons was 43.4 per cent in 2011. Thats when McCoy had 1,309 yards rushing and 17 touchdowns en route to his first Pro Bowl. But Reid is now in Kansas City teaching his version of the West Coast offence. Kelly has a unique offensive system of his own. He prefers an up-tempo style centred on moving quickly, running a lot of plays and keeping defences off-balance. At Oregon, Kellys offence averaged 44.7 points in four years. The Ducks ran the ball at least 61.7 per cent of the time during those four seasons. "Chip has shown that he runs the ball a lot, so I think thats the difference," McCoy said. "I want to get back to that old stage where Im taking over a game. I think with all the talent and supporting cast around me, that should be easy. With the offence around me, theres not as much pressure where you have to do everything. There are certain guys on different teams where if they dont play well, their team doesnt do well, and with the Eagles that isnt the case." The Eagles have several playmakers on offence, including two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jacksson, wideouts Jeremy Maclin and Jason Avant and tight end Brent Celek. Ecco Mens Boots Australia. Tight ends are a key part of Kellys offence, so he added free agent James Casey and rookie second-round pick Zach Ertz. Running backs Bryce Brown and Felix Jones give the offence even more options. "That helps me out a little bit, but as a competitor I want to be one of those guys in the offence where in the fourth quarter, I want the ball," McCoy said. "I want that type of attitude, and the type of person Coach Kelly is, he has that attitude also. It makes us more dominant as a team if each guy has that attitude and wants the ball and is willing to make plays. You dont know where to go as a defence." So whether Vick, Foles or even Barkley end up behind centre for the season opener at Washington on Sept. 9, the Eagles have the foundation for a dynamic offence. "I think well be dangerous," McCoy said. "I think we have potential to make some big noise. I think the biggest thing with this offence is it gets you in open space. Were constantly going. Foot on the gas, were constantly going. I think when teams are getting tired and thinking about defensive strategies, were gone. Were pushing it, high-tempo. I think it will be good for us, and the good thing now with this team, we finally have more depth, especially at running back." Nothing went right for Philadelphia last season when they finished 4-12. Injuries were a problem for the offence. Only one offensive lineman finished the season, McCoy missed four games, Jackson sat out the last five and Vick got hurt before losing his job to Foles. Its a new year, of course, and theres a ton of excitement surrounding the team with Kelly on board. "The skys the limit, not only Maclin and me, but McCoy, Celek, (Jason) Avant," Jackson said. "Its just from A to Z, I think its a big difference. Nothing bad to say about Coach Reids offence and his system and Marty Mornhinweg, but just the way Chip Kellys coming in with (offensive co-ordinator) Pat Shurmur and things like that. I just think theyve installed something very good here so were very excited. I think everything is going to take off real fast." Taking off fast could mean keeping the ball on the ground. "I think that our running game should be second to none," lineman Todd Herremans said.

Winnipeg Goldeyes manager Rick Forney has been talking about a lack of "timely hitting" all season long. Cardinals Jerseys Online . On Monday night, his team failed to deliver again. The Goldeyes were held to two runs on 10 hits by five Gary SouthShore RailCats pitchers, as Gary scored one in the first, two in the third, one in the fifth and three in the ninth and whipped Winnipeg 7-2. With 5,477 spectators looking on at Shaw Park, the Goldeyes got five runners into scoring position in the final five innings, but couldnt bring any of them home and Winnipeg fell to the RailCats for the third straight night. With the loss, Winnipeg dropped to 24-24 on the season and remained in third place in the American Associations North Division. Gary opened the scoring with a run in the top of the first, but Winnipeg tied it in the bottom half of the second on a solo homer by Fehlandt Lentini. Gary scored two in the third off Goldeyes starter Pete Gehle and then added another in the top of the fifth before Winnipeg scored on an infield single by Luis Alen, a single by Tyler Graham, a walk to Mike Coles and a balk by Gary starter Morgan Coombs. And that was it. Gary added three runs in the ninth. Winnipeg made two errors in the ninth and finished with four miscues on the night. Four Goldeyes had two-hit games: Graham, Alen, Josh Mazzola (who also picked up the 100th double of his pro career) and Ryan Scoma. Coombs (4-1, 4.85 ERA) got the win while Gehle (3-2, 3.98 ERA) took the loss. Gehle allowed four runs on six hits over only 4.2 innings. There was no save. The two teams will meet in the final game of this four-game series on Tuesday night at 7:05 p.m. at Shaw Park. Lefty Mark Hardy (5-2, 3.27 ERA) will start for Winnipeg while Will Krout (1-4, 5.29 ERA) will head to the bump for Gary.

Baylor?associate athletic director Heath Nielsen was arrested and charged with assaulting a reporter on the field following the Bears 62-22 loss to TCU at home on Nov. Donna Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Bianche/Bianche-Vasto Grigio AO2326-100 . 5.According to KWTX-TV of Waco, Texas, Nielsen was arrested three days later and charged with misdemeanor assault with bodily injury.He was freed on bond and hasnt attended the Bears past two football games against Oklahoma and Kansas State.Baylor issued a statement on the situation on Tuesday.Baylor Athletics was made aware of the post-game incident involving Heath Nielsen shortly after the game and took immediate action to address it with him through the Universitys human resources process, it read. We will continue to handle this personnel matter internally.According to an arrest warrant obtained by KWTX-TV, Nielsen confronted reporter James McBride on the field while he was taking a photograph with an unidentified Baylor player.?McBride, who writes for The Blaze News in Keller, Texas, told police that Nielsen grabbed him by the throat with his right hand, squeezed and pushed him away from the football player.The warrant said McBride had visible scratches on his neck and complained of pain around his throat.The warrant said photographs were taken of McBrides injuries, and security cameras at McLane Stadium recorded the incident.I had asked the player if I could take a photo with him [and] he said yes, McBride told KWTX. I was leaning back to take the photo. I heard somebody who I didnt know at this point in time yell from my right-hand side, saying no interviews on the field.About that time, they came in and tomahawk-chopped, trying to knock the phone that I had taken the picture with out of my hand. They were unsuccessful in trying to do that, and when they couldnt do that, they came up and they grabbed my throat, and I pulled back. Whenever I looked up, I saw that it was Heath Nielsen.Right after the incident, McBride said Nielsen told him, Youll never [expletive] work in this business again. Youre abusing your privileges on the field.The attorney for Nielsen, Michelle Simpson Tuegel, issued a statement on Tuesday.Shortly after the Baylor v. TCU football game on November 5th, Heath intervened when he noticed a man attempting to do an unauthorized interview of a student-athlete on the field, it read. The one-sided version of events released by the complainant are not true or accurate. Mr. Nielsen maintains that he intervened to stop the interview, but he did not grab the complainants throat. We look forward to vigorously defending Mr. Nielsen and presenting the facts involved in this situation.Nielsen has worked the past 17 years at Baylor, and his job duties include working directly with the Baylor football program and media. According to the schools website, Nielsen is responsible for management of the public image of the program. Nielsen is the programs spokesman, the liaison between local and national media, and the primary contact with television and radio networks that broadcast Baylor games.In October 2014, the Big 12 publicly reprimanded him for Twitter comments about officiating during the Baylor-West Virginia game. The conference fined the school $1,000 for his comments. Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Blu . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition.

Pettersen, winner of last years Evian Championships, had nine birdies and three bogeys, holding off a series of challengers led by Marion Ricordeau of France. The second-ranked Norwegian made her season debut after missing the LPGA Tours opening event last month in the Bahamas because of a shoulder injury. European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley insists golf must embrace new formats and plans to have six-hole events on the professional circuit as early as next year.The Canadian, who succeeded George OGrady last year, has been keen to modernise the game and has already permitted players to wear shorts in pro-ams and introduced measures aimed at tackling slow play.However, Pelleys announcement that six-hole sprint formats could be included on the European Tour schedule from 2017 is a significant leap.Golf and tennis has to be a little more open to letting the youth actually participate, Pelley told BBC Radio 5Live. Theres no question that is something we believe in as well.You look at some of the new formats that have been created -- when you look at adventure golf, or the brand Top Golf, and theres one 15 minutes from where I live in Virginia Water. Its really geared towards millennials, so the way that people are participating in the game is completely different.Lets be honest -- and scientific data proves this -- attention spans are decreasing as opposed to increasing and its completely different when the choice people have to consume content now is so different than it was 35-40 years ago.So you have to change, peoples time is so precious that golf -- I think every golf course being built needs to be six holes, six holes, six holes - so that people can go at the beginning before they go to work.Pelley highlighted the success of Twenty20 cricket in boosting attendances as a reason for change.From our perspective, as the gatekeepers of the professional game, we are looking to create a format that would be six holes.That could be an hour, an hour-and-a-half content programme which would be very entertaining, added Pelley, who said that if golf were invented today it would likely be a 12-hole rather than 18-hole sport.Yes there would be a shot clock, yes there would be music being plaayed, and PA announcements, and players would be dressed a little differently, and maybe they would only play with five or seven clubs. Air Max 97 Bianche e Rosa. .Our leaderboard is always filled with a bunch of different flags and it would probably be a country competition, so you could probably see England playing Scotland in a six-hole matchplay with time clocks and music and so forth going on and it would be an aspirational goal to be even remotely as successful as Twenty20 cricket.If youre not prepared to change, if youre not prepared to be innovative, if youre not prepared to take chances, then I do believe that the sports that arent will fall behind.Wed like to experiment ... in 2017 and maybe roll it out in 2018. Its still in the infancy stages of being developed.The tradition, the integrity of the game, the 72-hole tournament will always be there in some form but if you catapult ahead 10 or 15 years the game of golf will be consumed completely differently and there will be different formats that will be successful as content entertainment makers.Pelley also refused to rule out changing the name of the European Tour to reflect its global nature in the future.A strategic partnership with the Asian Tour was announced earlier this week and with just 19 of the 50 European Tour events held in 2016 being staged on European soil, Pelley is open to rebranding in the future.He continued: You cant play 47 weeks in Europe, hence the reason that we started to move all around the world and since then weve expanded and as early as this week weve announced a strategic alliance with the Asian Tour, so our position in Asia is going to grow: weve opened an office recently in Korea.As the game expands, were expanding, so youre correct assuming the brand might change going forward.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- The 1 p.m. tee time last Monday would have been no big deal otherwise. But it was in Switzerland. And for Henrik Stenson, it was the day after winning The Open.That was hard on no sleep, said Stenson, smiling.The occasion was a charity event for Sergio Garcia, one Stenson had long ago committed to and which attracted a slew of big-name players.But coming less than 24 hours after winning The Open in Scotland, the timing was not the greatest. Then it was home to Sweden for what was supposed to be a few days with the family, his golf clubs stored away.But having become the first Swedish male golfer to win a major championship, there were media demands that consumed quite a bit of time.Someone even told me they were broadcasting it live on radio, so I guess that shows the magnitude of the win, Stenson said. If they broadcast the whole thing on radio, national radio.A lot of interviews, a lot of media the first couple of days, but I still managed to spend some time with my family for a few days before coming over [to the U.S.] My signature has been pretty sought after since I touched base here in New York. Theres been a lot of signing these first couple of days out there.After shooting a final-round 63 at Royal Troon to win The Open by 3 strokes over Phil Mickelson, theres been a good bit of celebrating, and some traveling, but not much time for decompressing and assessing.Just 11 days after his career achievement, Stenson, 40, will go after major championship No. 2 on Thursday when the PGA Championship begins at Baltusrol. Its a quick turnaround without much time for reflection.Ive just got to get back into my game and pay attention to all the little things that are important to play good golf for me. Anthony Averett Jersey. Exactly how to do it ... I havent been in this situation before. So I guess weve got to make the best I can, and you live and you learn. And if we dont get it right, Im sure well figure out why we didnt get it right.Stenson, who is ranked fifth in the world, would love to build on the momentum that has come from his two recent victories. He won the BMW International Open in Germany last month and has had five other top-six finishes in 2016.I dont think Im going to sit back and just say, OK, that was it, Im finished, Stenson said. Its definitely the icing on the cake. If I look at my career, to win a major championship, that was pretty much the only thing I had not managed to achieve, and now I have that.But then at the same time, you can look ahead and then try and win another one. I think Ive got a good few years in me and Im going to try and keep on developing, and if you dont, these young guys are going to come up and take over. So I think Ive got a bit of fight in me.Although there has been little time, Stenson did say hes had a few celebrations with the Claret Jug that involved champagne. With so much golf in the immediate future -- PGA Championship, Olympics, FedEx Cup, Ryder Cup, the European Tours Race to Dubai -- he expects that to subside.There have been some memorable celebrations, he said. [But] I have it [the Claret Jug] for a year, so there might be a few more sips.

Australias coach Darren Lehmann has guaranteed the places of just four members of the Hobart Test XI. Nike Epic React Flyknit Mujer .On a day South Africa completed a dominant series victory, the Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland and high performance chief Pat Howard joined former players for introspective talks on the state of the team in the Bellerive Oval dressing room.Lehmann, who has been told to reinvent himself by Howard, stated that only the captain Steven Smith, his deputy David Warner and the pacemen Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood are safe from the axe ahead of next weeks day-night Test in Adelaide. All members of the team apart from Starc, Hazlewood and the seamer Joe Mennie are to play in the Sheffield Shield round starting on Thursday, in a departure from previous plans.Weve got to stop the rot, weve got to work out what the best XI is, Lehmann said. Guys playing this Test match, some were disappointed in their performances and they get the chance to play the Shield game to put their hand up. I thought Hazlewood was great, Starcs getting back to his best and then youve got Smith and Warner.Outside of that everyones got to make some runs and take some wickets. Its a really important four days of Shield cricket. The lads are really keen to get out of here and get ready to play that game and prepare the best they can. Spots, performances are going to count, but youve got to have an eye to the future as well, its that juggling act.These words mean that numerous medium-term members of the team are under enormous pressure to keep their places, including the spin bowler Nathan Lyon, the most experienced player in the side and the custodian of the team victory song - not sung since February in New Zealand. Adam Voges, who is averaging less than 15 over his past 10 Test innings, and wicketkeeper Peter Nevill also seem to be in the firing line.Like everyone else, down, Lehmann said when asked about Voges mood. Adams been a very good player for us for 20-odd Test matches, end of the day hes got to go back and make runs like everyone else. Wed love someone to stand up and bat big, I think weve had two hundreds in the last five Test matches and they were both in one innings. So we havent had big runs from anyone.Sutherland and Howard flew into Hobart on Tuesday in time to address the team after their innings defeat, the first at home since the summer of 2010-11. Former players Mark Taylor, Ian Healy, Shane Warne, Michael Slater and Tom Moody also spent time with the team. Weve had James and Pat talk to us, and thats about going forward and sticking together, Lehmann said. I know theres a lot of criticism out there and thats deserved because we havent been winning. We have to cop that and live with that. For us its about stopping that, turning it around. Theyre all great kids, great staff members, they work hard. We just havent had results go our way.Young batsmen expected to be considered for selection include the elegant NSW left-hander Kurtis Patterson, the South Australia captain Travis Head, and another Redback in Jake Lehmann - the coachs son. Darren Lehmann indicated he would sit out of any selection discussion involving Jake Lehmann.I dont sit in on anything when they [the selectors] talk about Jake, and I dont know what theyre saying about Jake, Lehmann said. Not involved, and Id be that nervous anyway I probably wouldnt be coach. Id probably just go to the bar.The Test squad will be named on Sunday after the Shield round is complete, meaning the team will assemble in Adelaide on Monday, a day later than previously scheduled.Possible Test squad for Adelaide: Steven Smith (capt), David Warner, Joe Burns, Usman Khawaja, Kurtis Patterson, Callum Ferguson, Matthew Wade, Steve OKeefe, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Jackson Bird, Chadd Sayers Air Max 270 Mujer Baratas . Dusautoir, the former World Player of the Year, sustained a torn bicep playing for Toulouse in the Heineken Cup on Saturday. The flanker, who has played 65 times for France, is expected to be out for up to four months.

Kimi Raikkonen believes pole position was there for the taking for Ferrari, after missing out by just over a tenth of a second to Nico Rosberg during qualifying in Belgium.Raikkonen, a four-time winner at Spa, made a slight mistake on each of his Q3 runs to leave him 0.166s adrift of Rosbergs time, meaning the Finn will start Sundays Belgian Grand Prix from third on the grid, behind Max Verstappen and Rosberg.Despite a much-improved performance from Ferrari in qualifying, Raikkonen was left disappointed to not have been able to claim his first pole since the 2008 French Grand Prix.Everything went as planned, including Q2, Raikkonen said. Obviously in Q3 I ran wide in the first run -- that wasnt ideal -- but the last lap was pretty good, even though I lost 0.2s on the last corner compared to my lap in Q2.Pole position was there for the taking and thats a bit disappointing. It was really close out there and it would have been nice to get pole. But the race is tomorrow and I think if we compare it with the previous two races this is a satisfying qualifying.The 2007 worrld champion played down the effect his errors had on his final qualifying position and admitted he cannot explain the reason behind Ferraris gains in its qualifying performance at Spa compared to the last few races. Air Max 270 Flyknit España. Not really, it didnt compromise it. But it would been easier without the first off, because that lap was also very good. On the last lap I lost 0.2s compared to my lap in Q2. For sure we had a chance to put it on pole and it would have been easier without going off in the first run. But thats how it goes.Its hard to say, but its nice to be so close but obviously wed rather be on pole position. I felt we had a good chance but I lost time in the last chicane. Is it the conditions? Its very hard with these conditions for the tyres.I dont know. If we knew it would be much easier to be in these positions all the time. Things have changed quite a few times this year, depending on circuits and conditions, so, who knows?

The upcoming bowl games provide the Southeastern Conference a chance at redemption. Air Max 270 Hot Punch AH8050-010 Heren: Zwart-Hot Punch .A league that prides itself as the nations strongest has only one team -- No. 1 Alabama -- ranked higher than 17th in the Top 25 . The SEC went just 6-8 in nonconference games against other Power Five teams during the regular season, including a 3-6 mark against the Atlantic Coast Conference.With 12 of its 14 members playing in bowl games, this is a chance for the SEC to restore its reputation.We are the SEC, and obviously we have a higher benchmark than other conferences out there, Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said. People expect certain things out of the SEC.Although the bowl season starts Dec. 17, SEC teams wont get involved until Dec. 26, when Mississippi State faces Miami (Ohio) in the St. Petersburg Bowl and Vanderbilt meets North Carolina State in the Independence Bowl .The SEC would love to see this years bowls turn out as well for the league as last years postseason.One year ago, the SEC encountered similar criticism after only one of its members -- Alabama, again -- was ranked in the top 15 at the end of the regular season. Before 2015, the last time the SEC had only one top-15 team was in the final poll of the 2000 season.The SEC bounced back last year by going 9-2 in bowl games, including Alabamas victory over Clemson in the College Football Playoff championship game. The SEC set an NCAA record for bowl victories in a season.I think bowl games are a big indicator of conference strength, Tennessee defensive end LaTroy Lewis said. Last year everybody scrutinized the SEC, and we had great success in the bowl games.The SEC isnt the only conferences have much at stake this postseason.The Big 12 has an opportunity to prove its worth in lesser bowl games after getting left out of the playoff for the second time in three years. The Big Ten wants to solidify a banner year as it enters the postseason with four teams ranked eighth or higher. The ACC heads into bowl season with its highest nonconference winning percentage (.750) since 1990.But theres particular pressure on the SEC due to its status as the nations premier conference for the last decade. SEC teams have won eight of the last 10 national championships.I would remind and caution everyone that youre judging us against the standard which we set, and we set that standard over 10 years -- actually probably 12 years -- in a continuing manner, SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said last week when he was asked about the leagues relative struggles this season. Weve got one year that well talk about and well analyze, but our expectations for excellence dont change at all.Even in whats considered a disappointing season, the SEC still has gone 42-12 in nonconference games and owns the highest nonconference winning percentage (.778) of any league. The SEC hadnt lost as many as 12 nonconference games in a season since going 31-15 in nonconference play in 2003, and it hasnt finished a season with nonconference winning percentage below .800 since 2008.Another stellar bowl performance could quiet the SECs critics, but the league faces a tougher road in this years postseason.SEC teams were favored in nine of their 11 bowl games last year, including the playoff championship game. The favorite won each of the 11 postseason games involving SEC teams.The SEC is dealing with tougher matchups this time. SEC teams are favored in six of their 12 bowl games and are underdogs in five other bowls. The Georgia-TCU Liberty Bowl is rated as a toss-up.SEC coaches have defended the conference by citing the depth that has allowed the league to have 12 bowl representatives, though that includes two 6-6 teams (South Carolina and Vanderbilt) and one 5-7 squad (Mississippi State). Tennessee coach Butch Jones noted the week-to-week grind of playing in this league and said if youre not at your best, youre going to get beat.Its still the most competitive, toughest football conference in the country, Jones said.The bowl season offers the SEC one last chance to back up that statement.---AP freelance writer Chip Cirillo in Nashville, Tennessee, contributed to this report---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Steve Megargee at www.twitter.com/stevemegargee Air Max 270 Hot Punch . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. Air Max 270 Heren . The mixed zone is not a place to make friends. http://www.nike270kopen.com/ . Siddikur, whose previous win on the circuit came in Brunei three years ago, finished his bogey-free round with a birdie on the 18th for a total of 17-under 199. Indias Shiv Chowrasia, who has finished runner-up in this tournament twice, was in second place after a 66. Englands phenomenal progress in one-day cricket means that their odds with bet365.com have narrowed to 2/7 for success in the fourth ODI at Headingley on Thursday, and just 4/7 to complete a 5-0 series win.The better value may reside in taking a punt on the identity of their top-scorer in Leeds. Alex Hales, fresh from his England-record 171 at Trent Bridge, is 3/1 to continue as Englands leading run-maker, while his opening partner, Jason Roy, who himself made 162 at The Oval earlier this season, is 10/3.A better option might be to look further down the batting order to the explosive talents of Jos Buttler. He scorched his way to 90 not out from 51 balls despite coming into bat at the start of the 37th over. He battered seven sixes in that time, the most by anyone in the match - so he is primed to make up for lost time, no matter when he appears at the crease. Air Max 270 Flyknit. arfraz Ahmed, the scorer of a brilliant hundred at Lords last week, is one of the few Pakistan batsmen who has shown any aptitude for the challenge so far, and he is a tempting 8/1 to be his teams top scorer at Headingley.However, that honour was shared by two men at Trent Bridge - Sharjeel Khan, who is 9/2 to repeat the feat ... and Mohammad Amir, who clubbed a remarkable 58 from 28 balls despite coming in at No.11. He is 100/1 to top-score once again for Pakistan. Who would bet against it?

From Munsters storied win in 2006 to Leinsters European reversal in Croke Park in 2009, Alan Quinlan shares his memories of both contests and a seminal encounter in 1998. Discount Falcons Jersesys ... Leinster versus Munster was always a big game in the calendar and youd have a spring in your step the week of the match.Our goal in 1998 would have been to be the best Irish province, year-on-year, and we took a big step towards that in the final game of the inter-pro series. 1998: Leinster 10-25 Munster Alan Quinlan breaks through the Leinster line This is the one that stands out because we had to beat Leinster and win on points difference to lift the inter-pro. There must have been around 5,000 people at the game in Donnybrook, which was nowhere near 80,000 people who would come later. But it was the start of a journey, building towards a team that could compete in Europe and eventually win Europe.Professionalism was still very new but there was a great rivalry in the inter-pros. Id gone to games as a kid and had played for Munster Youths so I understood the history associated with the fixture. But these games always felt like a final trial too because if you played well you could progress up the line to play for Ireland. Id been working as a car mechanic for five-and-a-half years so it was a dream come true to be getting paid for playing rugby.Myself, David Wallace and Anthony Foley were all starting out then, John Hayes was coming through along with more established players like Killian Keane, John Lacey and Peter Clohessy.We had played in Dooradoyle earlier in the season and there was about 300 at the game. Leinster beat us and this was the return fixture.It was always the same when we played Leinster - if we got the better of them up front we had a chance. They had a quality backline and pace but we finished with the trophy.2006: Leinster 6-30 Munster Ronan OGara cuts through a tired Leinster defence to score Losing to Leinster in the Celtic League final in 2001 was a big disappointment for us and the rivalry really started to escalate because now it was tied up with winning big trophies, so that Celtic League loss was a painful defeat.It was all building to 2006 which was a unique occasion but I didnt get to play.I suffered a cruciate ligament injury at the start of the season but I was with group and in the hotel the night before the game.I remember the bus from the Radisson in Stillorgan and being blown away by the crowd. It must have been the first time there was 50,000-plus at a Munster v Leinster game.I watched from behind dug-out in old Lansdowne Road. It was phenomenal. Ronan OGara salutes Munsters support after victory over Leinster in Lansdowne Road We felt confident after beating Perpignan in the quarter-finals. No one expected Leinster to beat Toulouse away 41-35 and we were delighted because we expected to be going to France. To return to Lansdowne felt like a great opportunity for us. It wasnt over-confidence but we sensed an opportunity to get to the final and wed a better chance of beating Leinster in Dublin.We were under no illusions as to how strong the Leinster backline was. They were all top quality, were in the national side and obviously theyd the potential to hurt any team.I knew the biggest threat was their backline and we felt if we could limit opportunities here wed win the game.I think that match ignited the Leinster machine - the result, the amount of Munster people that got tickets, the atmosphere, that we then went on to win it. It was probably a bit of shock and envy.2009: Leinster 25-10 Munster Gordon DArcy squeezes over in the corner to set the tone for the 2009 European Cup semi-final It wasnt all good memories and we didnt go into the 2009 game thinking we should win it. But we had beaten Leinster twice already that year, 18-0 in the RDS and 22-5 in Thomond Park.It was an incredible occasion in Croke Park but we were just stuck in the ground, caught cold and they produced a brilliant performance. Brian ODriscoll scores a breakaway try that put an end to Munsters hope in 2009 It was extra disappointing for me as I ended up missing out on the Lions Tour [after being cited over an incident involving Leo Cullen].It wasnt just the disappointment of losing the game, there was a bigger situation at play for me and the result lost its significance. It was harder to take that I was now a doubt for South Africa.For Leinster, they avenged what happened in 2006 and it was a kick-start for them to go on.Watch Leinster v Munster live on Sky Sports 3 HD on Saturday from 5pm. Catch the match for £6.99 on NOW TV.

James, who turned 29 on Monday, injured his groin Friday during the Heats overtime loss at Sacramento. He sat out the following game, a 108-107 win Saturday in Portland, before coming back to help send the Nuggets to their seventh consecutive loss. LAHAINA, Hawaii -- The Lahaina Civic Center sits on a hill above Honoapiilani Highway in western Maui, barely visible among the tropical trees and police station.The outside of the building is nondescript even up close, looking more like a school auditorium than a basketball arena. Same thing on the inside, with its upstairs, YMCA-style lockers and cage-like windows overlooking the court.Yet every November, the Lahaina Civic Center transforms into something else: one of college basketballs most raucous venues.Its like a high school gym being there, Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said Sunday, the eve of the Maui Invitational. The noise is loud, people are close to you. I think its neat. This time of year you want to play in front of an excited crowd, an arena where everything is close. Theres just so much you can gain from an experience like this and in a building like that. Theres really nothing like it.The Maui Invitational has become the top in-season tournament on the college basketball schedule, annually luring some of the best teams from across the country to the second-largest island in the Hawaiian chain.This years eight-team field has combined for 14 national championships and 40 Final Fours, and three teams are ranked in the top 10 of The Associated Press poll : No. 4 Oregon, No. 5 North Carolina and No. 9 Wisconsin.The three-day tournament, which starts Monday, also includes Tennessee, Oklahoma State, UConn, Georgetown and host Chaminade.At the center of this basketball-topia is the 2,400-seat Lahaina Civic Center.Built in 1972, the building is used as a public civic center 50 weeks out of the year, hosting high school basketball leagues, volleyball games, karate practices and community events.The two weeks of the Maui Invitational brings some changes to the civic center -- signs and banners, TV lights, cushioned chairs in front of the bleachers -- but its still nowhere near matching the massive, modern arenas found across the rest of college basketball. It didnt even have air conditioning until the 2005 tournament -- after North Carolina coach Roy Williams complained about condensation on the floor.Its hard to adapt an old building with such character into a 2016 basketball arena that everyones used to, said Mark Starsiak, director of events for KemperLesnik, which operates the Maui Innvitational. Cheap Atlanta Falcons Jersesys. I tell teams every year: `Its the most unique experience youll have walking from the locker room all season. If you have any questions, Ill try to answer them.Calling the Lahaina Civic Center quirky is like saying basketball players are tall.The court, outside of the massive Maui Invitational logo at midcourt, is like a high school hardwood, with volleyball court and vertical basketball lines crisscrossing the court.The seats are like something out of Hoosiers, old bleachers that are practically on top of the court and only go up a dozen-or-so rows.The locker rooms are unlike anything in college basketball.Those are on the second floor, up a narrow stairwell that leads to a common area with taekwondo and wrestling lines on the floor, with nothing but a black curtain separating the teams. The common room also has cage-like windows that overlook the floor, though the view has been obscured a bit with the massive Hawaiian-themed banner at the west side of the arena.The lockers are the old, metal bring-your-own variety, with four concrete chairs, a single whiteboard and showers that dont always work.Because of the small confines, teams waiting for the next game have to set up in the common area and often can be seen at the bottom of the stairwells as the previous game is about to end.Leave your strategy for the hotel because your opponent is right through there, Starsiak said, pointing at the black curtain. Anything you say can and will be used against you on the court.With all the pampering teams and players usually get, it might seem like the civic centers inconveniences would be a drawback.Instead, the quirkiness and quaintness adds to the charm of the building and the tournament, often making the players feel like theyre back in high school.And because of the venues size, the noise and atmosphere inside the Lahaina Civic Center is like nothing else in college basketball.The environments great, Georgetown coach John Thompson III said. The fans are right on top of you, you feel the emotion of the fans the whole time. Much like this entire tournament, the game is a unique experience.---For more AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback NFL Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '

Topics this week include a look at what could have been if the Chargers had traded their franchise quarterback for a rookie, a comparison of the way two very different teams have drafted and more. Youth Cardinals Jerseys .What could have been for Rivers and MariotaPhilip Rivers truly wanted to finish his career as a Charger -- a San Diego Charger -- but when he crosses paths with Marcus Mariota at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, itll allow for one of the more recent intriguing What if? games to be played.What if the Chargers and Titans had pushed to complete a trade in which Rivers went to Tennessee and Mariota would have been the No. 2 overall pick by San Diego in the 2015 NFL draft?Rivers and wife Tiffany would have welcomed their eighth child last October in Nashville, less than 90 miles from where they met as seventh-grade sweethearts in the deep south of Athens, Alabama.Mariota, not Rivers, would have been appearing at public rallies to get a yes vote on Tuesdays stadium initiative to salvage the teams future in Californias deep south, San Diego.Rivers extended family would be making short drives to Nashville to see him play and visit the children. Mariotas family, anchored in Hawaii, would have merely traveled across the Pacific Ocean to enjoy his NFL career.Dan Fouts would still hold the Chargers all-time passing record, and Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt might still be the Titans head coach.Rivers can only live with reality of the here and now. Fact is, he did want to remain a Charger as he entered the final year of his contract in 2015. But if the franchise was truly destined for Los Angeles because of the stadium crisis in San Diego, then taking his large, beautiful family to Nashville would have had its merits as he wound down his career.Mariota seemingly made sense for the Chargers -- he was rated as their top quarterback prospect of the 2015 class. Rivers was the face of the franchise, but Mariota would have provided a fresh face.Rivers certainly made sense for Whisenhunt, who was in his second year as the Titans coach. The two men forged an immediate bond when Whisenhunt served as San Diegos offensive coordinator for 2013. Rivers was the NFL comeback player of the year that season, and completed nearly 70 percent (69.5) of his passes for 4,478 yards, 32 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions.Whisenhunt became a hot commodity again, and chose the Titans over the Detroit Lions for his next head coaching spot in 2014. He was fired eight games into Mariotas 2015 rookie season and rejoined Rivers and the Chargers in January as offensive coordinator.So why didnt a trade happen?The Spanos family that owns and operates the Chargers ultimately wanted Rivers to remain the cornerstone of their franchise, especially as they navigate the rough waters of funding a new stadium or possible relocation. Mariota did have high draft grades, but rookie struggles often come with a price -- just ask Whisenhunt.Mariota is now thriving in his second season, and he no doubt will get the big bucks from the Titans in a couple of years. Last August, the 34-year-old Rivers signed a four-year, $84 million extension with the Chargers with one stipulation -- he insisted upon a no-trade clause.--?Chris MortensenThe difference between the Cowboys and the BrownsThere was once a time when Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had to be talked out of using Dallas first-round pick on quarterback Johnny Manziel while being steered toward guard Zack Martin -- which left Cleveland to use one of its two first-round selections on Manziel.Now Dallas and Cleveland square-off Sunday, and that draft is a prime example of why the Cowboys are 6-1 and the Browns are 0-8.Since 2010, Dallas has picked 11 offensive players in the first four rounds of the draft, and nine of them (81.18 percent) -- Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Tyron Smith, Martin, Travis Frederick and Dez Bryant -- are still on the team, the highest percentage in the NFL.The Browns have picked 21 players in the first four rounds of the draft during that same stretch, and only eight are still on the roster (38 percent), which is the NFLs lowest percentage of offensive players picked in the first round that are still on those respective rosters. The players Cleveland picked in those rounds who no longer are on the team include Manziel, Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden, Travis Benjamin, Jordan Cameron and Colt McCoy.Not many teams have done a better job drafting than Dallas, which has become a model of stability and productivity. Meanwhile, no team in the league has squandered more picks and more opportunities, which is why the Browns are staring straight at the prospect of becoming the fifth NFL team since 1944 to go winless, joining the 1960 Dallas Cowboys (0-11-1), the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-14), the 1982 Baltimore Colts (0-8-1) and the 2008 Detroit Lions (0-16).Once again, Cleveland is armed and loaded with multiple picks in April, including two in the first round. But if the Browns want to catch the Cowboys beyond Sunday, they have to start keeping up with the Joneses.--?Adam SchefterHow soon should Cam Newton expect change?A telephone conversation between NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton after a lower-leg hit by Arizonas Calais Campbell wont instigate renewed dialogue about the re-positioning of the referee, whose duty is to police quarterback protection.Thats a discussion already reserved for another day.Currently, the referee lines up to the right side behind the quarterback, in part to have a better view of the passers arm on a strip-sack fumble. However, those plays are now automatically reviewed by instant replay on a turnover, or by a coachs challenge on whether the quarterbacks arm is coming forward.Proponents within the league believe the referee should be positioned behind the quarterbacks blind side to enable better enforcement of QB protection rules. The leagues competition committee will take it up again in the offseason, according to Dean Blandino, the leagues vice president of officiating.We have talked about that for a few years, Blandino said. It doesnt apply to the Campbell hit because he comes up the middle, but there is some merit to it. We havent seen significantly more missed calls on one side compared to the other in recent seasons but... with replay involved in the strip-sack, that is no longer a reason to keep [the referee] on the right side. [Its] something we will continue to look at.--?Chris MortensenCharles stands out among a strong class of running backsIf Jamaal Charles career is coming to a conclusion for the Kansas City Chiefs, he should be remembered as one of the pleasant surprises to come out of the 2008 draft class that included five first-round running backs.None of those first-rounders were Charles, who was a third-round choice (No. 73 overall) by the Chiefs. Yet, the former Texas Longhorn has accumulated 7,260 yards rushing, 2,457 yards receiving and 63 touchdowns during his career. His 5.5 average per carry is the best in NFL history by a running back with that amount of work.Only one of those first rounders has been more productive than Charles: Chris Johnson, who has racked up 9,537 yards rushing and 2,212 receiving yards with 64 touchdowns during stints with the Titans, Jets and Cardinals.Matt Forte, who was chosen in the second round by the Chicago Bears, likely will finish as the most productive back of the class. He has 9,144 rushing yards, 4,279 receiving yards and 71 touchdowns. He remains the most durable among that class, still productive for the Jets.The 2008 first rounders: Darren McFadden (fourth, Raiders), Jonathan Stewart (13th, Panthers), Felix Jones (22nd, Cowboys), Rashard Mendenhall (23rd, Steelers) and Chris Johnson (24th, Titans).Herm Edwards was in his final season as the Chiefs coach when the team selected Charles to be a complementary back to Larry Johnson.One reason people missed on him is because Texas had such a dominating college team he was out of a lot of games by the third quarter, said Edwards. He was raw because he also had been a track guy and he was somewhat undersized. But, man, that guy could run and he ran with ease. Great kid. Coachs dream. Liked playing football. He worked at it, he learned how to play, how to run in this league and how to catch the ball, especially with Andy (Reid).Even with all the positives I can say about him, nobody imagined he would achieve what he has done. He deserves all the credit and recognition he can get.--?Chris MortensenTunsils domination has quietly paved the way for AjayiEveryone can see the holes that Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi has been running through the past two weeks on his way to two straight 200-plus-yard rushing games. But not nearly as much attention has been paid to one of the lineman opening them: Laremy Tunsil.Game tape of last weeks win over Buffalo showed that the player Tunsil was blocking never made a single tackle, and didnt even come close to getting one. Tunsil wasnt just good; he was dominant. He was, in the words of one Dolphins official, ridiculously good. We were so lucky to get him. He was the best player in the draft.But Tunsil slid for the infamous social media terrorism incident in which he was pictured wearing a gas mask, smoking from a bong. Teams kept passing him up and passing him up, until he slid to Miami at No. 13.He has been a great kid here, said the same Dolphins official. Weve had no issues with him, none. Its a joke what happened to him.For now he is playing left guard in Miami, but eventually, in another season or two, the Dolphins will shift him to left tackle. They plan for him to be their left tackle of the future, their quarterbacks blind side protector. But for now, Tunsil is getting ready for his first test against a stout Jets defensive front, trying to open more holes for the NFLs hottest running back.-- Adam?SchefterCould Jacksonville turn to a former coach in the offseason?Jaguars owner Shad Khan has said hes not making a coaching change now. At the end of the season, however, it could be different story.If Jacksonville does make a coaching change -- and its certainly looking like it will at the end of this season -- heres one name to keep in mind: former Jaguars head coach Tom Coughlin, the first head coach in that franchises history.Coughlin still has a home in Jacksonville, his charity is based there, and he has publicly said he has not retired from coaching. The Jaguars would have to be willing to hire a 71-year-old coach, and that would appear to be the biggest catch and obstacle. But if they can accept that, theyd be getting a two-time Super-Bowl winning coach who knows the city well, has a history of getting production of its teams and would restore instant credibility to the franchise.The Jaguars could hire Coughlin and have him groom a successor, until he is finished coaching and the coaching apprentice is ready.Its important to note that there havent been any conversations that have taken place between the two parties, but as one source close to the situation said last week, Its not the craziest idea in the world.-- Adam SchefterEmptying out the notebookTennessee is still paying its former head coach and current Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt millions of dollars, and in return, hell do everything within his power to beat the Titans on Sunday. Those checks wont let up anytime soon, either; Tennessee will continue signing them through the 2018 season.One reason the Patriots moved on from linebacker Jamie Collins is the play of rookie linebacker Elandon Roberts. Watch Roberts on tape. He is blowing up opposing offensive linemen, and the Patriots want to see more of that.How good has Raiders QB Derek Carr been? In his first 40 NFL games, he has thrown 70 passing touchdowns, the exact same number of passing touchdowns that Peyton Manning had in his first 40 NFL games -- only during that time, Carr has thrown 28 fewer interceptions than Manning.Its been a rough stretch for Cardinals offensive tackle Jared Veldheer. Just last week he underwent finger surgery to repair ligaments, then, playing with that injury, he tore his triceps and now finds himself on injured reserve. The only person who feels worse than Veldheer about his injury is Cardinals QB Carson Palmer. Even with Veldheer on the field last Sunday vs. Carolina, Arizona allowed eight sacks. Palmer took his hits; the Cardinals offensive line is now taking theirs.-- Adam SchefterThrowback Cardinals Jerseys .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. Mason Cole Stitched Jersey . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. http://www.officialcardinalsnflauthenticshop.com/ . John Lucas, signed as a mentor for rookie Trey Burke, showed he can score if required, scoring 12 points of his 16 points in the second quarter as Utah built an 18-point lead. The StarCraft II World Championship Series Global Finals are slated for Nov. 5 and only eight players remain for a shot at the title. Several surprises took the opening week by storm, but none of them were bigger than the advancement of both Tobias ShoWTimE Sieber and Miko?aj Elazer Ogonowski.Elazer wasnt guaranteed a spot before the tournament and headed into a tiebreaker match before several players, like Shin Hydra Dong Won, dropped out.The favorite to take the title, Park Dark Ryung Woo, may just have the easiest road to the finish line. Hell be the lone South Korean player on his side of the bracket and needs to best only one threat in Alex Neeblet Sunderhaft. Neeblet was the first non-Korean to win a premier South Korean tournament in 16 years (during that run, he also missed playing against Dark). It may be preconceived region bias, but Darks playstyle and experience spells trouble for his non-Korean foes. Chris Campbell Stitched Jersey. Byun ByuN Hyun Woo, the Micro King, will face two incredibly tough tests for a chance at a potential finale against Dark. Standing in his way will be Jun TY Tae Yang and potentially Joo Zest Sung Wook. However, ByuNs strengths may be exactly what beats both TY and Zest. In the mirror-match against TY, it will be less about the composition and more about the bio-control. ByuN is the best in the world with the least amount of resources and his marines will likely run rampant around TYs units. TY may be a more polished player overall, but the match will be anything but conventional. Against Zest, it will be about aggression and map control, something that ByuN does better than his Protoss opponent. Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback NFL Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '

Alex Anthopoulos cautioned us last week not to expect the Blue Jays to make any more deals for the rest of this month after he shipped Emilio Bonifacio to Kansas City for cash or a player to be named later. Arizona Cardinals Jerseys . The month following the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline traditionally isnt as busy. Teams can for instance use waiver claims to block rivals from picking up key players. That can cause deals to be aborted, or teams to be stuck with players they didnt really want in the first place. In 1998, San Diego claimed lefty reliever Randy Myers from the Blue Jays just to make sure he didnt wind up with Atlanta. Myers career was beginning a slow fade, and the Blue Jays were able to get out from under his rather large contract. Still, there have been significant trades made in August. In fact you could argue that the Blue Jays made two of the biggest in franchise history during the eighth month of the year. On August 27, 1992, the Blue Jays acquired right-hander David Cone from the New York Mets for Jeff Kent and Ryan Thompson. Though the rookie Kent would later star with the Mets and the Giants, Cone was instrumental in helping the Blue Jays win their first World Series when they beat Atlanta in six games. Former Blue Jays reliever Dan Plesac, who was with the Milwaukee squad that was trying to pass the Jays for first place, said at the moment that trade was made, the Brewers knew it was over because they realized their organization would never be able to swing that kind of impactful trade at that point of the season. Cone, you must remember, was essentially a rental. He become a free agent in the off-season and signed with Kansas City. The Blue Jays traded for him again in the spring of 1995. However, lightning didnt strike twice. Toronto had a disappointing season and Cone was ultimately traded to the Yankees later that same year. The Blue Jays other big August deal looked rather innocuous at the time. The Blue Jays picked up Jose Bautista from Pittsburgh for catching prospect Robinson Diaz on August 21, 2008. At the time Bautista was a journeyman outfielder who was running out of last chances. It took him the rest of 2008 and most of 2009 to find his groove. But in six years with the Blue Jays, "Joey Bats" has hit 168 homers, has been an All-Star four times and twice has finished in the top four of MVP voting. Diaz hasnt played in the Majors since 2009 and has only one career home run. Unless the Blue Jays move one of their boatload of relievers or send free-agent-to-be Rajai Davis to a contender, I dont see them making any deals between now and the end of August. All A.As heavy lifting will be done in the off-season. Around the Majors The Baltimore Orioles are still in the thick of the battle for a postseason spot. Theyre only four-and-a-half games back of Boston in the A.L. East and three behind Oakland for the second Wild Card slot. It will be interesting to see how they react to losing pitching coach Rick Adair who has taken a leave of absence to deal with a personal issue. Bullpen coach Bill Castro takes over as pitching coach, and former Orioles star Scott McGregor moves in as the new bullpen coach. The As have got their own issues to worry about. Their 14-game winner Bartolo Colon has gone on the 15-day DL with a groin muscle problem. Veteran lefty Tom Milone, who had struggled off and on this season and was demoted to Triple-A, has been called back up. The L.A Dodgers have practically wrapped up the NL West with a seven-and-a-half game lead on Arizona, and what a run they are on. Don Mattinglys crew has won 42 of their last 51 games. They are on a 19-2 run on the road and are on an incredible stretch of 25-4 since the All-Star break. As well as Dustin Pedroia has played for the Red Sox, and Mike Trout for the Angels, there is little if any doubt Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers is going to win his second straight AL MVP Award. Hes hitting .360 with 40 home runs and 120 runs batted in with six weeks left in the season. Only two other players in history have put up those kind of power numbers while hitting over .350. Those two gentlemen, Hall of Famers Babe Ruth and Jimmie Foxx. Travis DArnaud, who was a key component of the deal with the Mets that brought R.A. Dickey to the Blue Jays, played in his first two Major League games over the weekend at San Diego with John Buck away on paternity leave. The Mets, however, dropped both games. DArnaud went 0-for-4 but did walk four times, twice in each game. On Sunday, Mets ace Matt Harvey pitched six solid innings in a no-decision. He gave up just two earned runs on six hits and didnt walk anyone, while striking out six with the rookie behind the plate. The Mets are playing a make-up game on the road against the Twins on Monday afternoon before Buck is due to rejoin the team for Tuesday nights game at home against Atlanta. Heres hoping the National League Central stays as close as it is right now, because the Pirates and the Reds will play home-and-home series on the final two weekends of the regular season, first at Pittsburgh and then at Cincinnati. Right now the Pirates, who havent made the playoffs since 1992, lead St. Louis by one game and the Reds by two-and-a-half. Over those same two weekends, the Cardinals are at Milwaukee and home to the Cubs. Cheap Chris Campbell Jersey . - The Washington Redskins have cut defensive lineman Adam Carriker and punter Sav Rocca. Cheap Korey Cunningham Jersey . The giant slalom world champion slipped during her first run in the morning, landing on her back and then twisting forward before getting her leg caught in the protective material on the side of the slope. http://www.cardinalsjerseyscheap.com/cheap-josh-rosen-jersey/ . -- Whether Jeremy Hill deserves a prominent role in LSUs offence this early in the season is a matter for debate.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore has replaced injured Texas pitcher Yu Darvish on the American League All-Star roster. The change was announced after Moore got the win Thursday as the Rays beat Minnesota. Moore is 13-3 and tied with Detroits Max Scherzer for the league lead in victories. The 24-year-old Moore has a 3.44 ERRA in 19 starts. Cheap Mason Cole Jersey. Darvish was put on the disabled list Wednesday because of a mild strain in his upper back. He is 8-4 and leads the majors with 157 strikeouts. Darvish is a two-time All-Star. The right-hander plans to attend the All-Star festivities in New York. The All-Star game is Tuesday night at Citi Field. Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback NFL Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
