There are still jobs to be won but through

WINNIPEG -- The coach and general manager of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers say wins are the only thing that will show whether theyve assembled a better team this season.Nike Shox Nz Black And White UK . "I want to say our fans are going to see a team that theyre proud of, that regardless of the outcome on each particular game, that the fans are going to leave the stadium knowing that we gave it all," GM Kyle Walters said Friday on one of the conference calls CFL teams are having with the media as they prepare for the new season. But there were no bold predictions as to whether the Bombers are a better team yet than they were last season. "Its all words until we hit four wins," said Mike OShea, the former Toronto special teams co-ordinator preparing for his rookie season as a CFL head coach. Last season, the Bombers tied their worst record ever in the 18-game schedule as they finished in the CFL cellar at 3-15. "What does better mean?" asked Walters. "Thats the beauty I guess of our line of work that better is quantifiable with wins and losses." The teams on-field balance sheet shows additions and subtractions since that last troubled season ended. General manager Joe Mack got his pink slip well before the final game and coach Tim Burke was sacked after it was all over. Since then, the biggest loss was defensive star Henoc Muamba. The Canadian linebacker who was Winnipegs top defensive player, top Canadian player and top player overall in 2013 signed with the Indianapolis Colts of the NFL. And one possible import replacement, former Tennessee Titan Gerald McRath, didnt pan out. He went to the teams mini-camp in Florida and the defensive staff didnt see what they were looking for in the veteran. "Its not something were worried about," said OShea, pointing to players still on the roster who can fill the hole. The Bombers also lost Canadian special teams linebacker James Green and import receiver Wallace Miles to the Ottawa Redblacks in the CFL expansion draft. They lost receiver and 2012 CFL rookie of the year Chris Matthews to the Seattle Seahawks of the NFL but picked up free agent Nick Moore from the B.C. Lions, the third leading receiver in the CFL in 2013. They traded Canadian receiver Kito Poblah to the Lions for defensive back and four-time CFL all-star Korey Banks. The Bombers lost free agent offensive lineman Justin Sorensen, last seasons starter at centre, to the Edmonton Eskimos and are looking to use their second overall pick next week to select someone in the CFL draft they hope can be a starting centre. Overall though, Walters says this years draft offers a diminished pool because of rule changes regarding the NFL draft and red-shirted freshmen. "Youre going to see some real good players drafted next week," he said. "Theres just not the depth." The Bombers also struck out in every bid to land a bona fide starting CFL quarterback, although they insist theyre thrilled with former Saskatchewan backup Drew Willy, who has been guaranteed the job even before training camp starts. Both Walters and OShea were emphatic Friday that nothing will change that. "He demonstrated down in Florida to be very accurate," said OShea. "Hes not afraid to go down field . . . He took risks in practice. He didnt try to play it safe. . . He absorbed the playbook very quick. He showed some leadership, I dont forsee that changing from the start of training camp to the end." OShea said theyre not going into camp with a wait-and-see attitude. "What weve done in the off-season I believe is showing that were not waiting to see whats going to happen next, were taking a real active step in creating what we want to happen next," he said. Nike Shox Uk Outlet .Bryant caught a career-best three touchdown catches from Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys rallied to beat the Eagles 38-27 on Sunday night after wasting a 21-0 lead. Nike Shox r5 Shoes Sale .

Thats where Travis Snider, their first-round pick in the 2006 draft, will be trying to regain the position he gave up last season to Eric Thames. "Thats going to be the daily watch," manager John Farrell said Friday after his players finished a five-inning intrasquad game in preparation for Saturdays spring opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Snider played 49 games for Toronto in 2011, batting .225, an average that has dropped dramatically each of his past three seasons after hitting .301 as a rookie in 2008. His struggles got him two demotions to Triple-A Las Vegas. Thames, in his first major league season, batted .262 in 95 games last year. Snider had a double in three at-bats and Thames was 0 for 2 on Friday. "Its good to get out there and play the game," Snider said. "It gets a little, I dont want to say monotonous, but when youre facing live batting practice you just have to get locked in." Ricky Romero, starting his fourth season with the Blue Jays, is their ace, winning 13, 14 and 15 games in his first three years, with an ERA that dropped to 2.92 in 2011. Romero was accustomed to pitching with minimal run support. "I thought he did an excellent job of that a year ago," Farrell said. "As he channeled his emotions in the right way, it allowed him to execute onn a consistent basis in those tight games. Nike Shox Monster Sale. Thats what has allowed him to evolve into the pitcher he is now." Romero, who pitched the first inning, said he was "a little excited when I got out there, just to get on that mound and see hitters and see an umpire and all that good stuff. ... You get into game mode." At one point he escaped a man-on-third, no-out situation. "Thats where youve got to slow the game down and make pitches. Thats what I did. I know its preseason but Im a competitor, man. I dont want that guy to score, no matter if its a practice game or whatever it is. My job is to leave that guy at third." Farrell said his three areas of concern as spring training begins, "is, one, we stay healthy, two, that we get the answers from a personnel standpoint answered and, three, that we set the tone from a mindset from the starting pitchers, and really from pitching overall, to attack the (strike) zone and pitch to contact early. "There are still jobs to be won but through the first four or five days of spring training everyones going to get on the field. The guys that start (Saturday), well try to get them three at-bats, then well look to fill in behind them." At the moment, though, "Everybodys looking for a different colour (uniform) to show up and see a different team, across the field," Farrell said. "Itll be good to begin that next phase of spring training." wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap soccer jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys china ' ' '
