Das Männer Know How.
Winning begets winning in professional sports, and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers — fresh off snapping their seven-game losing skid with a Banjo Bowl victory — are hoping to build off their second win of the season as they begin a home-and-home series with the CFLs cellar-dwelling 1-9 Edmonton Eskimos. Kurt Warner Jersey . "Ive been on teams that have been on losing streaks and broke out of it. All it takes is that first one, and if you just focus on one game at a time then you can climb out of things like this," said Winnipeg defensive end Greg Peach. "And I think after that first Saskatchewan game we kind of figured out that if we put a full game together we can put them away and put any team away. Now we have that confidence that we can do it to any team." "I was only here for a couple days before that first game (in Saskatchewan)," added Peach, who joined the Bombers just three days before the Labour Day Classic in Regina. "But I just know from experience of teams that have been on big losing streaks that I know what they were going through the last seven games. And I understand what the mentality is and what players are thinking. I think now we got this first win, I think theres a confidence thats building and guys are believing and putting things together." Peach, a five-year CFL veteran, knows that in the Canadian game you cant count a team out of the playoffs regardless of their record until late in the season — especially in this years East Division. And his coach knows it too. "Were a unique league in that respect because six of the eight teams are going to the playoffs. In the NFL or NCAA or whatever, if you had a below .500 record you wouldnt even sniff at the playoffs," said head coach Tim Burke. "Theyre aware. I mean most of them are aware. I cant believe some of them werent." With the youngest roster in the league this is the case. Several Blue Bombers didnt know until this week that they are still in the hunt for a playoff spot. And with Eastern opponents Hamilton, Toronto, and Montreal facing tough road games over the next two weeks, Winnipeg has a chance to capitalize on back-to-back games against the single-win Eskimos. "It was just brought to my attention that we were back into the playoff race," said second-year defensive back Demond Washington, fresh off his Defensive Player of the Week nod. "Weve just got to bear down and play hard this week. Every week from here on out just take it one week at a time and well get it done." "Once you get that win up under your belt, you gain a little confidence and you want to go out, you want to play more, you want to win more. So I think that win is contagious. All the guys are going to come out and were going to play hard." It may be cliché, but it appears Winnipegs bench boss is having his team focus on the weekly task at hand. "I prefer to focus on one game; one game at a time," added Burke. "I mean, I have in the past said hey, heres a reason why we should be working our butts off, were only four points out, and then after last week we were only six points out. But now were back to four points out. My approach has always been to take it one game at a time and focus on that. Use the game itself as your motivation. Dont use playoffs because thats something you cant grasp." "But you know, its interesting. As the season goes along, were still in it. So we have a lot to fight for, thats for sure." Notes: The Winnipeg Football Club is now officially in the post-Buck Pierce era, as acting GM Kyle Walters moved the veteran pivot to the B.C. Lions for Canadian receiver Akeem Foster.

Backup safety Dan West is out two weeks with a hamstring pull... Adrian Peterson Jersey .ca. Hi Kerry, Love reading your column and loved watching your analysis on the TSN broadcasts!And were now in Round 2! Bruins! Canadiens! We know all about the great games of the past from the players, the broadcasters and the writers. Tyrann Mathieu Jersey . Heck, we might just miss the BCS. Maybe? It sort of worked out this season. Top-ranked Florida State (13-0) was the only team to get through the regular season unbeaten, and the Seminoles did it in dominating fashion. http://www.uscardinalslockroom.com/Black-Friday-Patrick-Peterson-Jersey/ . Villa has already confirmed his short-term deal and the Daily Mirror reported early Tuesday that Lampard will join him as both build up match fitness ahead of moves to the new Major League Soccer franchise New York City.Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at firstname.lastname@example.org. Kerry, With just over a second left in the game, the L.A. Kings puck got behind Henrik Lundqvist. Derek Stepan got in, swatting the puck back under Lundqvist with his glove. How is that not a penalty shot??? Andrew Sullivan,London, ON Andrew: Your question relates to rule 67.4 - "If a defending player, except a goalkeeper, while play is in progress, falls on the puck, holds the puck, picks up the puck, or gathers the puck into his body or hands from the ice in the goal crease area, the play shall be stopped immediately and a penalty shot shall be awarded to the non-offending team." In the application and enforcement of this rule it important to note that a player (in this case Derek Stepan) is allowed to push the puck from within (video link) the goal crease with his glove so long as he does not cover the puck (*hand over top). Additionally, once the puck has been "pushed," it is allowed to legally pass with continuous motion beneath and beyond the body of Stepan. The puck was contacted twice by the glove hand of Stepan. The first time, to bat it forward from the goal line which caused the puck to ddeflect off Lundqvist and back toward the shin pad of Stepan who had assumed a position on both knees. John Brown Jersey. The Ranger player then altered his body position away from the puck and swept it under the equipment of Lundqvist with the cuff of his left glove. At no time did Derek Stepan place his hand over the puck or cover it with his body. That is the reason Referee Wes McCauley did not award a penalty shot to the LA Kings but instead correctly ruled the play dead when the puck came to rest under the blocker of Henrik Lundqvist. The front view replay angle shown one time on NBC demonstrates the puck in continuous motion and at no time covered by Stepan. I cant say enough about the exceptional positioning that Referee McCauley demonstrated on this play. With Tanner Pearson and Marc Staal crashing near the ref along the goal line and outside the crease McCauley quickly blew past the fallen players to attack the net below the goal line. The referee almost stuck his nose into the netting behind the cage to clearly observe the entire proceedings on the puck. The focus, concentration and intensity demonstrated by referee Wes McCauley matched that of the players in this pressure packed moment. McCauley gave not a drop of sweat less than the game required of him.
