the tone with the even-keeled attitude from miaowang123's blog

Santa Clara, CA (SportsNetwork. Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey .com) - Oregon wasnt going to let Arizona ruin its national title dreams for a second straight season. The Ducks were 9-1 going into last years meeting in Arizona, which the Wildcats won 42-16. Oregon followed that up with a 31-24 home loss to a then- unranked Arizona squad back in October. Since then, the third-ranked Ducks have won eight straight games, including a 51-13 rout of the eighth-ranked Wildcats in the Pac-12 championship game at Levis Stadium. Marcus Mariota, the front-runner for the Heisman Trophy, accounted for five touchdowns on Friday and the Ducks assuredly locked up a spot in the first College Football Playoff. Oregon (12-1, 8-1 Pac-12) entered the game No. 2 in the CFP rankings. Mariota completed 25-of-38 passes for 303 yards and two touchdowns for the Ducks, who racked up 640 yards of total offense. The mobile junior from Hawaii has thrown for at least one touchdown in each of the first 39 games hes played at Oregon, an FBS record. Mariota also carried the ball 10 times for 33 yards and three scores for Oregon, which captured its second Pac-12 title. Royce Freeman rushed for 114 yards on 21 carries and Darren Carrington caught seven passes for 126 yards and a touchdown. Anu Solomon completed 6-of-12 passes for 34 yards for the Wildcats (10-3, 7-2), who entered the contest No. 7 in the CFP rankings. Jesse Scroggins started the second half and connected on 3-of-9 passes for 79 yards, one touchdown and an interception. Jaire Alexander Packers Jersey . -- Miami Dolphins defensive co-ordinator Kevin Coyle defended the management style of coach Joe Philbin in the wake of the teams bullying scandal. Custom Packers Jerseys . Ashton scored a hat trick -- giving him 13 goals in 16 AHL games this season -- to power the Toronto Marlies to a 5-2 victory over the visiting Lake Erie Monsters in AHL action on Sunday.GREEN BAY, Wis. - While he appreciates suggestions from Packers fans of remedies for his sore left calf, Aaron Rodgers is not necessarily going to listen to the advice.Whatever Rodgers is doing appears to be working.The quarterback took limited snaps on Wednesday, the first day of practice for Green Bay ahead of Sundays NFC title game against the Seattle Seahawks.It is an improvement from last week, when Rodgers missed the first day of practice preparing for the Dallas Cowboys.I mean, hes doing everything he can. I do know that, coach Mike McCarthy said. We did a little bit more today than we did this time last week. I dont really know if thats an indicator. Were dealing with it.Rodgers is sticking to the teams prescribed rehab plan, along with an occasional dose of acupuncture, and thats it.I know people have the best intentions when theyre sending stuff in, Rodgers said. You know they want me to get back on the field. This time of the year when theres an injury, there (are) a lot of experts out there.Rodgers doesnt have the full mobility that allows him to extend plays outside the pocket, one of his trademark strengths.The right arm is just fine though. The 13-yard touchdown pass thrown like a fastball to Richard Rodgers in last weeks 26-21 win over Dallas is proof.I dont think so, Rodgers said when asked if he had to overcompensate with accuracy to make up for his limited mobility.Its been pretty good for a number of years. Just limited mobility makes you have to throw from the pocket a little bit more.Those second- and third-looks created by Rodgers when he breaks out of the pocket may not be there as much, especially with the Seahawks stellar secondary.Quick throws out of shotgun formation have become a staple of the Packers offence. Theyre still running effectively out of that formation, too.Maybe Seattles Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman will even get a few throws in his direction this time after the Packers didnt pass to his side of the field in the 36-16 loss in the season opener to the Seahawks. Jaire Alexander Jersey. McCarthy has said that wasnt by design, but just how things played out in the course of the game. The Packers have said theyre not intimidated.Its simply a matter of who is open.Well I plan to throw it to the open guy. Thats kind of been the way Ive played for a number of years, Rodgers said when asked if he would target Shermans side.Seattles defence has improved since Week 1, but so has the Packers offence. The offensive line, in particular, has played well, especially with a rookie at centre in Corey Linsley.McCarthy has called his front five possibly one of the best units that he has had in his nine years in Green Bay. Protection will be at a premium, especially, against the Seahawks.Just withstanding their speed, for sure, because you know that theyre going to come out real fast. Its the NFC championship, Linsley said. So, big games like this, teams come out real fast, so youve got to match their speed and withstand their initial surge that the coaches always talk about.Then after that, its just settling down and playing ball.Rodgers sets the tone with the even-keeled attitude. There is not even a hint of panic in the locker room that the Packers will have to face the Seahawks with their quarterback at less than full speed.Rodgers has heard all the get-well suggestions. One fan recommendation noted by Rodgers on Wednesday involved what the quarterback called the human-to-pet connection.I didnt see quite how it related to my calf, Rodgers said, but again I appreciate all the suggestions.Notes: Besides Rodgers, DL Josh Boyd (ankle) and OL Josh Sitton (toe) were also limited. Sitton has had his injury since the loss to New Orleans in Week 8. ... Still, all 53 players on the roster practiced on Wednesday in some form. Health is very important. You need all hands on deck, McCarthy said. The ability to play with the same 53, the same 46, for a couple weeks is a huge benefit.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL China NFL Jerseys Discount Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Jerseys WhiteWholesale Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
