REGINA -- Two years ago, GM Brendan Taman went outside the box to find a new head coach for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. On Thursday, he rewarded Corey Chamblin with a contract extension through the 2017 season after leading the Riders to just the fourth Grey Cup title in franchise history. "I went with my heart and some people may viewed it outside the box but I knew we had the right guy," Taman told reporters at a news conference. "Corey brings is a lot of things to the table I was looking for when we were hiring a head coach for this organization. "Hes knowledgeable, hes very confident, he can deal with people which is very important as a head coach, hes got a very very good ability to put a very good coaching staff together. The last two years weve been able to do that and were going to have another one this year and I think thats a huge credit to Corey." Taman hired Chamblin, then Hamiltons defensive co-ordinator, following the 2012 season after Saskatchewan posted a league-worst 5-13 record. The Riders finished third in the West Division with an 8-10 record in Chamblins first season, losing 36-30 to Calgary in the conference semifinal. Last year, Saskatchewan won eight of its first nine games before suffering four straight losses. The Riders finished the regular season with an 11-7 record -- second only to Calgary (league-best 14-4 mark). After dispatching B.C. 29-25 in the West semifinal, the Riders upset Calgary 35-13 to advance to the Grey Cup game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Before a rabid Mosaic Stadium gathering of 44,710, the Riders capped their season by downing Hamilton 45-23 for their first CFL title ever on home soil. "It was great for Brendan to think outside the box," Chamblin said of Taman. "He talks about making that decision from the heart, well, I coach from the heart and I thought that was a good match for us." The countrys sports editors and broadcasters rewarded the Riders for their accomplishment by voting them The Canadian Press Team of the Year for 2013. And in February, Chamblin was also named the CFLs coach of the year. And now, Chamblin has a deal that gives him the long-term security often sought by a pro football head coach. But Chamblin isnt about to rest on his laurels. "Its not something for us to sit back and say, Yeah, hey, this is what weve done," he said. "I think the biggest thing it does is it gives us a chance to work together to continue something. "We dont want to be one and done. Theres a lot of things that I think we still have left on the table that we have not accomplished." Chamblin heads into his third season having amassed a 19-17 regular-season record. Hes also 3-1 in the playoffs, including the Grey Cup victory. But hell have a much different team to coach in 14. Running back Kory Sheets -- the Grey Cup MVP -- and veteran slotback Weston Dressler both signed NFL deals with Oakland and Kansas City, respectively. Among the other players no longer with the Riders are defensive tackle Keith Shologan (Ottawa, CFL expansion draft), defensive back Craig Butler (Hamilton, free agent), running back Jock Sanders (Calgary, free agent), receiver Kierrie Johnson (Ottawa, free agent), linebacker Abraham Kromah (Hamilton, free agent) and punter Ricky Schmitt (B.C., free agent). However, Taman said one of Chamblins biggest strengths is his ability to communicate with players. "One of the main things we wanted was to have a head coach who was able to walk into this lockerroom and get the message across to the players," he said. "Corey does a very good job of that, obviously. "Whether the message is good or bad or indifferent, he gets it across. He also brings a definite passion to win, hes driven to win on a daily basis. He wakes up every day with ideas and knowledge to try and improve this team." Alex Petrovic Jersey (http://www.hockeypanthersofficialonline.com/alex-petrovic-hockey-jersey/) .

He scored two highlight-reel goals in a three-minute span -- the second on a sideways bicycle kick in the 78th minute -- to give the Whitecaps a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers before a crowd of 20,303 at B.SEATTLE - Aaron Rodgers was sore the whole game, even if he didnt always show it.Battling his left calf sprain, Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers built a 19-7 lead in the NFC championship game before stumbling in the fourth quarter for a 28-22 overtime loss to the defending champion Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.The Seahawks return to the Super Bowl. The Packers go home.We had some chances early, we had some chances late to do some things, and didnt do it, Rodgers said. When I go back and think about it, I think at times we just werent playing as aggressive as we usually are.Russell Wilsons 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse in the extra period won it.The Packers defence intercepted the Seahawks Russell Wilson four times and forced five Seattle turnovers. Wilson was sacked five times.But it all fell apart for Green Bay at the end. The Packers couldnt muster a fourth-quarter first down and failed to corral an onside kick as Seattle seized the momentum. Afterward, Rodgers admitted the calf bothered him the whole game.Losses are bad either way, Rodgers said. But the way we lost, up two scores, late in the game, with the ball, you expect to put that game away.Rodgers sore calf was a focus going into the game.Injured against Tampa Bay in Week 16, Rodgers was limited in practice before Green Bays 26-21 victory over the Dallas Cowboys last weekend. Throwing mostly out of shotgun formation, he finished with 313 yards passing and three touchdowns.He was limited in practice again this week as the team prepared for the Seahawks.But he had a track record of overcoming obstacles in the playoffs. The Packers were 10-6 in the regular season in 2010 before beating Philadelphia in a wild-card game, top-seeded Atlanta in divisional playoff game and then Chicago for the NFC championship. Rodgers was the MVP after leading Green Bay to a 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl.With his calf clearly taped underneath his sock on Sunday, Rodgers finished with 178 yards passing with a touchdown and was intercepted twice..dddddddddddd.Rodgers looked to be handling the pain well at the start. Although he was intercepted on Green Bays first drive, the Packers returned the favour on Seattles subsequent drive, when Ha Ha Clinton-Dix intercepted Wilson.The Seahawks defence held Green Bay out of the end zone, and Mason Crosby capped the drive with an 18-yard field goal.Seattles next drive ended when receiver Doug Baldwin fumbled and Packers safety Morgan Burnett recovered at the Seahawks 23. But the Packers settled again for a 19-yard field goal from Crosby.Rodgers hit Randall Cobb with a 13-yard scoring pass, his lone TD pass of the game. Crosbys 40-yard field goal made it 16-0 and Sam Shields intercepted Wilsons attempt to Kearse in the end zone with 1:55 to go in the half.The Seahawks narrowed it to 16-7 on a fake field goal and touchdown pass by holder Jon Ryan with 4:44 left in the third quarter. But Green Bay added Crosbys 48-yard field goal with 10:53 left in the game to extend the lead to 19-7.Thats when it all fell apart for the Packers.Andrew Quarless missed a third-and-4 pass from Rodgers at the Green Bay 19. The Packers intercepted Wilson on his first throw from scrimmage, but Green Bay again went three and out.Wilson scored on a 1-yard keeper with 2:09 left, and then the Seahawks recovered the onside kick when the ball landed in Chris Matthews hands after it was bobbled by Green Bays Brandon Bostick.That led to Marshawn Lynchs 24-yard touchdown run and a 2-point conversion put Seattle in front 22-19.Rodgers was steady, leading a drive to the Seattle 36, but his third-down pass to Jordy Nelson fell short and Green Bay settled for Crosbys 48-yard field goal to tie it and send the game to overtime.Seattle won the toss, and the crowd at CenturyLink Field roared.You cant let them complete a pass for a touchdown on a fake field goal, you cant give up an onside kick, and you cant not get any first downs in the fourth quarter and expect to win, Rodgers said.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys (http://www.wholesaleauthenticchinajerseys.com/) Wholesale Jerseys (http://www.authenticjerseyswholesalechina.com/) Wholesale NFL Jerseys (http://www.chinawholesaleauthenticjerseys.com/) Jerseys From China (http://www.wholesalechinanfljerseys.net/) Wholesale NFL Jerseys (http://www.cheapjerseyschinanflwholesale.com/) Cheap NFL Jerseys (http://www.chinawholesalejerseyscheap.com/) Cheap Jerseys (http://www.cheapwholesalechinanfljerseys.com/) ' ' '
