SEATTLE - Game plans vary from week to week, opponent to opponent. Kaka Jersey . Any NFL coach will scoff at the notion theres a formula that works the same against everyone.The exact opposite is true when constructing a contender. The basics must be adhered to:—Stability in coaching, the front office and, perhaps most importantly, ownership.—Forward thinkers.—Strong drafting and personnel decisions.—Oh, and standout quarterbacks.Pete Carroll, who won national championships at Southern California and now has a Super Bowl ring with the Seahawks, never thought he could top USC. His mind has changed.I thought I had seen the top of it. We won for so long, Carroll says of his Trojans years. We won a lot of games there, a lot of games in a row, and did a lot of stuff. How could you hope to hit it again? Ive been around coaching a long time. Its hard to do that and its rare when it happens. So it just feels like we were very fortunate that weve been able to find a way to put it together in this fashion.Lets see how this Final Four stacks up.SEATTLE (13-4)On the verge of becoming the first defending Super Bowl champion in a decade to reach the game again, the Seahawks easily check off all those categories.Hired in 2010 and given full power by owner Paul Allen — perhaps the NFLs richest man, but one who doesnt interfere in how the team is run — Carroll added John Schneider as general manager, and off the Seahawks went. They made the playoffs that first season, albeit as the first division winner with a losing record (7-9), and upset New Orleans in a wild-card game.The building had just begun, though, and it didnt all come together until 2013.Seattle has done its best work in the draft. Such stars as QB Russell Wilson, DBs Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor, LB Bobby Wagner, and mainstays C Max Unger, LBs K.J. Wright and Malcolm Smith (last Februarys Super Bowl MVP), and TE Luke Willson were drafted after the first round. Key wideouts Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse were undrafted.The Seahawks have hit the mark with veteran free agents DLs Michael Bennett, Tony McDaniel and Cliff Avril, too.As for forward-thinking minds, simply look at their belief that 2012 third-rounder Wilson should start as a rookie. He merely has a record-setting 36 regular-season wins already.GREEN BAY (13-4)The only publicly owned NFL team, the Packers havent allowed democracy to slow them in the Mike McCarthy era. While Packers President Mark Murphy is a steadying presence in Titletown, McCarthy and GM Ted Thompson have built a winner around All-Pro QB Aaron Rodgers.Their philosophy is to build from within — rarely does Green Bay delve into free agency, although the addition of DE-LB Julius Pepper was masterful this season. Of course, when youve gone from a Hall of Fame type quarterback in Brett Favre to another one in Rodgers, it makes personnel moves easier.This is the ninth year of our program, says McCarthy, who led the Packers to the 2010 NFL championship. Weve gone through this. Having 20-25 per cent of your roster turning over and the majority of it being first- and second-year players, its a process that you go through from Game 1 until today, and you put your best foot forward Sunday.McCarthy and his staff arent afraid to gamble, be it trusting that a jack-of-all-trades collegian such as Randall Cobb could become a star receiver, or that moving standout outside LB Clay Matthews inside would make the defence more formidable.NEW ENGLAND (13-4)Robert Kraft is one of the most powerful NFL owners, with input on all key issues. He might be more involved in league matters than those of his team, because he has Bill Belichick in charge.And Belichick has Tom Brady behind centre. Enough said.New Englands hierarchy reports to Kraft on business matters, to Belichick on anything football-wise. With all personnel matters in his hands, Belichick is willing to take chances (see Randy Moss, Chad Johnson, LeGarrette Blount, et al) on veterans with troubled histories. He also reads the draft better than most — except perhaps the Seattle group — finding gems everywhere, from DT Vince Wilfork in the first round (2004) to Brady at No. 199 way back in 2000 to quarterback turned star receiver Julian Edelman (232nd in 2009).No one pushes the limits in all aspects like Belichick. Some of it (Spygate) gets him in hot water, and others — last weeks use of eligible players at ineligible positions — is totally legal, if devious.INDIANAPOLIS (13-5)When Peyton Manning was at quarterback, this was a model franchise under coach Tony Dungy and owner Jimmy Irsay. Much changed when Manning missed all of 2011 following neck surgeries; Dungy had retired in 2009. Irsay has been the constant, and hes had his own personal issues, including a six-game league suspension after he was arrested on preliminary charges of misdemeanour driving while intoxicated and four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance.But Irsay is a first-rate owner and his choice of Chuck Pagano as coach has been a terrific one. The Colts have gone 11-5 all three of Paganos seasons, and have progressed one step further in the playoffs each year.A major reason: they lucked into Andrew Luck. Manning departed in 2012 just when Luck was coming out of Stanford, and the Colts earned the top draft pick.Pagano is a defensive mastermind, yet the Colts have been more impressive with the ball in his tenure. Theyve scored beyond Luck in the last three drafts with the likes of WR T.Y. Hilton, TEs Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen, DEs Bjoern Werner and Jonathan Newsome, and OL Jack Mewhort.Yes, they belong in this Final Four.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Carlos Rivas Jersey .com) - Blake Griffin had 31 points and 16 rebounds in the Los Angeles Clippers 102-100 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. David Mateos Jersey . According to the Denver Post, Parker says he was pressured into fighting at the risk of losing his position on the team if he failed to do so. "He was a junior B goalie trying to tell me how to fight. http://www.orlandocityshop.com/Authentic-Blank-Orlando-City-Sc-Jersey/ . In the late match, Freiburg won 4-1 in Frankfurt, executing a counter-attacking game plan to perfection for an important victory against relegation. Calhanoglu, a 20-year-old midfielder, had several attempts foiled by Raphael Schaefer but the Nuremberg goalkeeper was helpless when Calhanoglus shot was slightly deflected into the roof of the net in 80th.CHICAGO -- The owners of the Chicago Cubs say theyre moving forward with plans to renovate and expand Wrigley Field, despite the threat of lawsuits by the owners of the adjacent rooftop venues overlooking the 100-year-old ballpark. Chairman Tom Ricketts, whose family owns the team on Chicagos North Side, said in a statement released Thursday that the Cubs will submit a revised expansion plan to the Commission on Chicago Landmarks that includes the teams original proposal to add several outfield signs and additional bleacher seats. "Unfortunately, it seems like my familys plans for Wrigley Field have gotten lost in the dispute with the rooftops," he said. "As a result, despite having new city ordinances to allow for expansion and renovation at Wrigley Field, we are back to square one with the rooftop businesses." Ricketts said the teams negotiations with the owners of the adjacent rooftop venues are "back to square one" and that its time to move forward. A lawyer representing the rooftop owners said they would fight the move. "It appears their zeal to block rooftop owners who pay them millions of dollars a year in royalties knows no bounds," lawyer Ryan McLaughlin said in a statement. "Unfortunately, this decision by the Ricketts family will now result in this matter being resolved in a court of law." The City Council approved the Cubs $500 million renovation plan last summer, but it has been stalled by opposition from the owners of the 15 rooftop venues. They have a contract with Cubs that runs through 2023 requiring them to pay the team 17 per cent of their gross annual revenue. The rooftop ownerrs fear the signs and additional seating will block their views of the field. Lewis Neal Orlando City SC Jersey. The two sides appeared to be close to a deal before the Cubs annual fan convention last month when Ricketts made some remarks that the neighbours considered disparaging. Ricketts revised expansion plan requires Landmark Commission approval for additional seating, new lighting, four additional LED signs of up to 650 square feet, and a 2,400-square-foot video board in right field. Other changes sought by the Cubs that dont require commission approval include: design modification to the player facilities, including expanding the Cubs clubhouse; expansion of the visitors clubhouse; movement of the bullpen to an area under the bleachers; and a reduction in the size of a left field video board already approved by the city. "I know this plan is in the best interest of our fans and our players," Ricketts said in a video posted on the teams website. "We hope to avoid heading to the courthouse. But the most important thing is we want to exercise our right to expand and preserve the ballpark we own and love." The Cubs have invested in facilities and their farm system, and the team this year opened a new facility funded by taxpayers in Mesa, Arizona. Ricketts has acknowledged some difficulties stemming from the $845 million purchase of the team from Tribune Co. that left the Ricketts family with a debt load. But he pointed out Thursday that the team hasnt sought city or state economic development money he says is routinely obtained for projects such as this. "We want to exercise our right to improve Wrigley Field," he said. cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys Ray Ban Outlet Michael Kors Outlet Michael Kors Sale Cheap Michael Kors ' ' '
