Not just to help make the playoffs but to bolster confidence
OWINGS MILLS, Md. Tyler Higbee Rams Jersey . -- The Baltimore Ravens and tight end Owen aniels have reached agreement on a 1-year contract, pending a physical. The 32-year-old Daniels broke into the league with Houston in 2007 and spent his entire career with the Texans before being cut last month. Daniels rejoins former Houston head coach Gary Kubiak, who became Baltimores offensive co-ordinator during the off-season. Daniels broke his right leg last October and played in only five games. He had 24 catches for 352 yards and five touchdowns. For his career, the 6-foot-3, 249-pounder has 385 catches for 4,617 yards and 29 touchdowns. Baltimore already re-signed tight end Dennis Pitta this off-season and added wide receiver Steve Smith. Along with returning wideout Torrey Smith, the upgraded receiving corps should provide quarterback Joe Flacco with plenty of targets. Jacob McQuaide Rams Jersey . The San Antonio Spurs handled the conditions, and the team, and it sure helped when a suffering LeBron James couldnt make it to the finish. Cory Harkey Rams Jersey . Huntington doesnt want to help run the club unless Hurdle is in the dugout. The combination thats returned the franchise to respectability will remain intact for years to come.Oh my Ottawa, so close but yet so far away. With only one win by only one point heading into Week 15 of CFL football this really has turned into a very long season for RedBlack football. With two seconds to go, no time outs, seven yards away, first down and the score 15-7 the chance was there to tie the Montreal Alouettes and take it to overtime. It would have been poetic justice considering all the adversity and opportunities missed all season but it was not to be. I guess you could blame everybody: coaches for not anticipating, quarterback for not directing, receivers for mass confusion and centre for lack of execution. Everybody. As painful as it was to watch the moment not capitalized upon it really is all part of the gigantic process of learning how to win and maturing as a team. People grow up and teams grow up too. It is a process of seeing what was difficult and awkward becoming controllable and smooth. When you talk to a coach it is often why they say they coach in the first place, to see a team or an individual improve and mature. In the case of the team its called winning, and in the case of a player its called performing. Yes it is directly related and achievable and its easier when you have your best players on the field, but even the best players were not very good at some point in their football careers. Ottawa in many ways is like a little kid making mistakes and improving as it ages, they just need to grow up fast since patience in waiting for winning is very short in pro football. The same goes for Winnipeg. The inability to score a touchdown and get Drew Willy his fifth come-from-behind win was painful to watch but if its never repeated was well worth the experience. There still are many more good aspects of football to talk about than bad but this was a tough one to accept and move on from. Especially when you realize that Willy had a 303-yard passing day and the quarterback on the other side, Zach Collaros for Hamilton, had a 182-yard passing day and the 303-yard quarterback lost. And looking at Hamilton, that is a team that is growing up. They have won four of the last five and are in first place in the East with an uncomfortable 5-7 record. First place is first place and the Ticats control their football destiny which is always priority number one. The return of an efficient Collaros is reason number one why this is the case, but they are also a defensive football team that has improved and is playing its best right now. Hamilton has good Canadian talent and you see that at this point of the season, Lindon Gaydosh is going to be an effective player and with Justin Hickman back the Ticat four-man pass rush is better than it ever has been. The resurgence of Hamilton also coincides with their moving in to a new stadium and everything new that goes with it. I am convinced that if you have an empowering atmosphere you will see an improvement on field in skill and result. I wonder if Toronto has what Hamilton does - if not they would aalso benefit. Kurt Warner Rams Jersey. Pure logic says yes. The most impressive win was Edmonton 24, Saskatchewan 0. It is tough to shut out a team in CFL football with all the ways you can score but Edmonton did it. The Eskimos are run and influenced by Mike Reilly, foremost as an individual player but they have three good running backs comparable to anyone Saskatchewan or Calgary have. Tyler Thomas, Kendial Lawrence and now John White and his 192 yards give Edmonton exceptional balance in run and pass. White saw what Lawrence and Thomas were doing and knew he was competing for long term employment against the Riders. He won both competitions. For the Riders the obvious is the most relevant and of extreme significance. Right now I cant see the Saskatchewan Roughriders getting to or winning the Grey Cup unless someone takes over at quarterback and performs fast. Is it on the roster? Right now I have to say no. Could it be on the roster? I have to say maybe, but not a confident maybe, more of a doubting maybe. Pretty much everything else is good but the unknown of who will and can handle the football the best is a massive concern. Anthony Allen, Jerome Messam and Will Ford get ready, the quality of the 2014 season may fall on the three of you. With Calgary 14, B.C. 7, twenty carries for 156 yards says it all. Even though they knew it was coming Jon Cornish ran for 156 on only 20 carries. Dew Tate threw for only six yards more with 162 to put the Cornish performance as the reason the Stamps won. Other reasons: First, BC scored on its opening drive and that was it, great defence. Second, of the 156 yards, many times Cornish hit the second level - the linebacker level - in full stride. Great offensive line blocking. And third, Dave Dickenson. He kept his top player his top player by using him over and over again. There were many times we all knew Cornish was going to get the ball and he still got it. Dickenson stayed disciplined all game and made sure when it came to touches, Cornish turned each one into yards. It is tough to win on field goals and credit BC on defence but Calgary did it and are now 11-2. Thoughts going into Week 15? Winnipeg must beat Ottawa big time. Not just to help make the playoffs but to bolster confidence because if they dont confidence will hit an all-time low. Calgary at Saskatchewan. If the Stampeders win it pretty much kicks the Riders out of any realistic chance at first place. This is the first of two matchups with the next in Week 18 but that one is in Calgary. For Toronto, playing Edmonton in Toronto is an advantage as this says Edmonton does not play its best. Five of next six are at home for the Argos and if, and I know it is an if, five wins happen it is a nine-win season. Considering all the adversity of this year, it would be a minor miracle. With B.C. at Hamilton, the Ticats stole one in Winnipeg and will have to earn one back home. They just might. October football starts Wednesday. Fall football is here. Cheap Jerseys From China ' ' '
