McLellan, like everybody, wonders about the Oilers split personality home and away.do we have a better save percentage on the road than at home, why do we check better and keep the games closer, why is our penalty kill is so good on the road and not at home? I don have the answers for that, he said.think or penalty killing home and away is a bit of anomaly. It 90 per cent on the road (53.8 per cent at home). It even out, said Oiler centre Mark Letestu.All we know is the Oilers have played four 2 1 games and a 3 2 game on the road.

And athletes who push the limits sometimes don recognize their own limitations when they had a concussion.A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury TBI by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, stretching and damaging the brain cells and creating chemical changes in the brain.While most athletes with a concussion recover quickly and fully, some will have symptoms that last for days, or even weeks. A more serious concussion can last for months or longer.That why, CDC and the NFL teamed up with USA Hockey, the US Ski and Snowboarding Association, and twelve other national governing bodies for sports to develop a poster for young athletes.

Sooner,” Sugarman added.The roles of the concussion spotters have increased in importance and attention after a handful of players, most notably Houston quarterback Tom Savage, clearly were hurt but didn’t get the immediate care required.

A former manager of mine, an Army Engineer adopted into the Rhade tribe, treated his wedding ring and tribal bracelet with equal respect. Too many RVN and GVN personnel, however, treated the Montagnards as primitive inferiors. There certainly were cultural conflicts, such as the bathing customs of the Yao tribe, but failing to get villagers and hill people to support the ARVN was critical to the war.

If you ever get out. Find that spot. At the base of that wall, you find a rock that has no earthly business in a Michigan hayfield. We can do it better. We can do it the Portland way.

The issue of fans tuning out was on the collective mind of NFL owners and league executives when they gathered last Wednesday in Houston for their annual fall meeting. There was discussion about other topics that also wouldn’t necessarily fall into the upbeat category, such as the Oakland Raiders’ likely move to Las Vegas.

“We have had clear directives from the competition committee,” Vincent says. “They asked us and the players to remove some of the helmet to helmet hits that we have seen, as well of some of the blindside blocks and other types of disparaging techniques and behaviors on the field.

This staff has no clue. Tate has went down hill since game one and the defense plays like 11 individuals instead of a cohesive unit.

He was the ultimate team first player and he embodies that same mindset as a coach.

Defensively, the Falcons are still young. Matt Ryan put himself into the MVP discussion with a consistently brilliant regular season. (Dude has thrown for more than 200 yards in 55 consecutive games, which is an NFL record.) His career numbers are much better than you may think he already in the top 25 all time in passing yards and TDs but can you be a Hall of Fame QB in today game without getting to a Super Bowl? Probably, but Ryan certainly would like to add that accomplishment too..

One interesting fact about the canal is that it did not flow directly into Halifax Harbour. The waterway ended at Sullivan Pond and there was a Marine Railway built to take vessels from the pond to the harbour and vice versa.

It sucks and RR saw this first hand. He left West Virginia in a mess feel sorry for that school. So i will not shed a tear for coach RR if this situation was mishandled (it was) simply because college football is now a BUSINESS more than ever and in business, its just about business to quote Hyman Roth “this is the business we have chosen” will this hurt the program? how can it get any worse? the next coaching decision will decide the fate of the program so they need to get it right.

The expectations surrounding Team have gone through the roof but expectations in Green Bay are just as high with Rodgers this week describing their postseason performances since winning the Super Bowl in 2010 as “not good enough”.

Some of this is not coach Eric Mangini’s fault, though some of the roster’s weaknesses certainly are. Either way, Mangini will take the fall whenever it gets to that point. His handling of Jerome Harrison was bizarre, to say the least, and his weird secrecy about his starting quarterback, for instance, as if any team is fretting over Delhomme and Wallace is quite strange.
