RENTON, Wash. Ivan Rodriguez Jersey . - Halfway through the regular season, the Seattle Seahawks have slipped more than expected for a Super Bowl championship team.The Seahawks (5-3) have brought an added layer of drama, complete with injuries sidelining key starters, rumblings of locker room divides and the stunning trade of wide receiver Percy Harvin to the New York Jets.And while the second half of the schedule is difficult, theres optimism based on the past couple of weeks that all the chaos is in the past.I think were making progress, coach Pete Carroll said. Weve survived some really hard games and weve won some really hard games. Were battle tested and were ready to go. The fact that we can make this turn with young guys prepared to play and with some guys coming back to their health and we will get a second wave of that as well, Im feeling pretty good about our chances to go out and win this game this week. This week is really whats a hand and were going to focus in on that like we always do and then we will just keep cranking, see if we can keep going.Sometimes Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch have been part of an unstoppable unit. At other times, Seattles offence has gone backward. Same goes for the vaunted defence that has struggled with getting a consistent pass rush and creating turnovers, but remains statistically among the NFL elite.Red-zone efficiency and third downs are concerns — on both sides of the ball.Last season, Seattle was the best in the league, allowing only 13 touchdowns on 36 red-zone possessions. This season, the Seahawks have already allowed 15 TDs — 65.2 per cent of red-zone possessions — to rank 26th in the league.Conversely, Seattle is scoring touchdowns on its red-zone trips barely 50 per cent of the time, with 16 TDs on 31 possessions.The Seahawks struggled to get off the field on third downs in their losses to San Diego and Dallas, while also failing to extend their own drives. Only once this season has Seattle converted more than 41 per cent of its third-down attempts.Seattle ranks 22nd in third-down conversions and 16th in third-down conversions allowed.I think well continue to emphasize third-down work continue to emphasize whats going on in the red zone. Weve not been as good as weve been and we need to get better in those areas on both sides of the ball, Carroll said. Those are probably the most obvious focuses were working at as well as getting the football away from our opponents. We see that picking up, the ball is bouncing around a lot now but its going to be more available to us I think as we keep moving forward. But weve got to execute better in the red zone and weve got to get our third down numbers in order.While the Seahawks may be optimistic with two straight wins, they have left themselves little room for error. They are two games behind Arizona in the NFC West and while there are two games remaining against the Cardinals, its the rest of Seattles schedule that makes the last couple of months so difficult.While facing Arizona twice could help make up ground, two games against San Francisco, trips to Kansas City and Philadelphia and a home finale against St. Louis make for quite the challenge.I think at the end of the day, were still in position to strike, still in position to get everything that we wanted to get in the preseason done, cornerback Richard Sherman said.NOTES: Seattle placed DE Greg Scruggs (knee) on injured reserve and claimed former San Francisco DE Demarcus Dobbs off waivers Wednesday. Dobbs was cut by the 49ers on Tuesday. ... New Seattle TE Tony Moeaki said he had been working out in Chicago before receiving a call last weekend to try out for the Seahawks. Moeaki went through the tryout on Monday and was signed by the team on Tuesday. Moeaki gives Seattle three healthy tight ends with Zach Miller still at least a week away from returning to practice following ankle surgery in September.

Here is an open letter from Steven Stamkos to his fans: When I shot this final Moment Zero film last August, it was a fun few days on set with Coke Zero and Jordan Eberle in my hometown of Markham. Jason Grilli Jersey . Darren Collison and Blake Griffin scored 23 points apiece and the Clippers beat the Suns 112-108 Wednesday night, their fourth win in a row and 17th in the last 19 games. http://www.authentictexasrangersgear.com/rangers-nomar-mazara-jersey/ .C. -- Jackson Whistle made 26 saves for his first shutout of the season as the Kelowna Rockets blanked the visiting Lethbridge Hurricanes 5-0 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.May 28 will mark the 25th anniversary of the final game the Blue Jays ever played at Exhibition Stadium and there really couldnt have been a more dramatic finish to that first chapter in Blue Jays history. There were 46,120 on hand to watch the Blue Jays play the Chicago White Sox, the same team they defeated on that snowy day in April of 1977 in the first Major League game ever played in Toronto. Things got a little dicey in the top of the eighth when Chicago scored three runs off Dave Stieb and Duane Ward to tie the score at five and ultimately send the game into extra innings. In the bottom of the 10th, with nobody out, George Bell slugged a game winning two-run homer off Bobby Thigpen that touched off a wild celebration and brought down the curtain on the Exhibition Stadium era of Blue Jays Baseball. Tom Henke got the victory with 1 1/3 innings of relief including three strikeouts and Kelly Gruber went 4-for-4 with an RBI. What many may forget is that after that victory, the Blue Jays record was only 20-28. Granted, they were 8-4 since Cito Gaston replaced the fired Jimy Williams, but the Jays still had a long way to come back to get into the playoff race. After that pulse pounding win to close the Ex, the Jays went on a six-game road swing through Cleveland and Boston. The Jays were swept at Cleveland to fall back to 20-31, just one loss shy of where they were at 12 under when Williams was cut loose. Then the season began to turn. They swept the Red Sox, including a wild 13-11, 12-inning victory in the finale. Ernie Whitt slugging a grand slam in the top of the ninth off Lee Smith as part of a five-run rally that put the Jays ahead 11-10, but Boston clawed back with a run off Henke in the bottom of the ninth that sent the game into extras. Then in the top of the 12th, Junior Felix belted what proved to be the game-winning two run shot off Dennis Lamp. Duane Ward getting the victory with three near-perfect innings of relief, including three strikeouts. That win came on Sunday, June 4, the day after the official gala opening Ceremony at SkyDome. The Blue Jays went right home to get ready for their first ever game at their new home on June 5 against Milwaukee. Unfortunately this one didntt have the happy ending for Blue Jays fans. Jurickson Profar Jersey. The Brewers won 5-3. The story though, was the magnificent, awe-inspiring structure that was SkyDome - complete with a fully retractable roof and the sellout crowd of 48,378 who paid more attention to the building than the game at times. Fred McGriff hit the first home run ever at SkyDome - a two-run shot off Don August in the second inning and Jimmy Key pitched the 1st complete game, giving up five runs on nine hits to fall to 6-4. The Jays didnt fair any better the second night. The bullpen combo of David Wells and Duane Ward gave up five runs over the final two innings to spoil an excellent seven-inning outing from starter Frank Wills. The Brewers winning again 6-4. Finally in the series finale, the Blue Jays finally christened SkyDome with a victory. The late John Cerutti went all the way on an 11-hitter, if you can believe it. In fact, he had a shutout going until Rob Deer touched him for a two-run homer in the top of the ninth. Cerutti closed it out though, and the Jays won 4-2. Cerutti didnt walk a single batter and struck out just one. I guess that defines pitching to contact! Two nights later, the Jays had their first shutout at SkyDome as Dave Stieb and David Wells combined on a 2-0 white wash of Detroit. So oddly in a building that would later be known as a home run haven, the Blue Jays had two complete games and a combined shutout in their first three games at their new home. The Blue Jays would go on to win their division, but ultimately lose the American League Championship to the powerhouse Oakland As - who went on to beat the Giants in the World Series. The point of all of this is that the Blue Jays have played all or parts (1989) of 25 seasons at the SkyDome/Rogers Centre. But June 5 of 2014 will be the official 25th anniversary of the first game ever played at SkyDome. One problem - the Blue Jays arent home on June 5. Theyre playing at Comerica Park in Detroit. But they will be home on the anniversary of the first victory on Saturday, June 7 against St. Louis. So let the planning begin. The years have just flown by and their have been so many incredible memories. Lets hope the Blue Jays do something special.
