ASHBURN, Va. Adidas Yeezy Levně . -- Despite losing twice at home, and facing all sorts of problem areas, Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden wants everyone to stay positive and understand we still have 14 games left and believe that all our goals are still reachable.If those phrases make him sound as if hes living in denial, there is no denying this: A loss next Sunday at the New York Giants (2-0) would leave Washington in a big hole in the NFC East, three games out of first place just three games into the season.To be 0-2 at home -- losing to the Cowboys, losing to the Steelers -- is kind of a shock to everybody, Gruden said Monday. We expected great things this year. We still do.A year after winning their division behind a career season from Kirk Cousins, the Redskins have reason to wonder what is going on with the QB . He has one touchdown pass and three interceptions, including an end-zone pick on third-and-goal from the 6 in the fourth quarter of Sundays 27-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.Hes not going to be perfect every week, thats for sure. And no quarterbacks are. Its just a matter of handling his business, going into work the next day and continuing to get better, Gruden said. Keep his head up and stay confident, stay poised.Gruden continued: Sometimes he puts a lot on himself. He puts a lot of pressure on himself. He wants to be great, theres no question about it. And sometimes, if he feels like hes not playing to the standards that we all have set for him, he feels like hes letting everybody down.There have been problems in the red zone. And on third downs. Cousins passer rating of 78.5 ranks 27th in the league.He has not been very accurate: Against Dallas, Cousins overthrew wide-open receivers DeSean Jackson and Jamison Crowder on plays that very easily could have been TDs.It wasnt good enough, obviously, Cousins acknowledged. I need to play better.No quarterback has thrown more often than Cousins 89 attempts through two games (Jacksonvilles Blake Bortles has the same number), and Washington has run the ball a grand total of 29 times, a division of labor that might not serve the Redskins well against the Giants revamped defense .Were not happy with the run-pass balance. Based on the numbers, were obviously not a `run-first team. Id be standing up here looking like a fool if I said were a `pound the rock-type team right now, Gruden said. First two games, the proof is in the pudding, the numbers.In addition to sounding an optimistic tone Monday, Gruden did say there is plenty his players and coaching staff needed to improve -- on offense and defense.Weve just got to do a better job communicating on defense, making sure were in the right spot, getting the calls out to the defensive backs, linebackers, defensive line. Offensively, making sure we know exactly where to go with the ball, when to go to it, and just do a better job of letting the players know what were trying to accomplish with each play call, both (on) offense and defense, the coach said. The players have got to understand what were doing and do it to the best of their ability.Game notes NT Kedric Golston went on IR after injuring his right hamstring on the first play from scrimmage against Dallas. In other moves, Washington brought up rookie DL Matt Ioannidis from the practice squad and added three players to the practice squad: LBs Jason Fanaika and Amarlo Herrera, and DL Bobby Richardson.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich Adidas Boty Dámské Výprodej .

Adidas Yeezy Sleva . Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumachers 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons. http://www.botyyeezylevne.cz/ . -- Bryant McKinnie came out of his stance and lowered his shoulder into a practice squad player, causing a crisp thud to reverberate in the Miami Dolphins practice bubble. Penrith are banking on the injection of three international stars, led by new recruit James Tamou, to take them to them deeper into the NRL finals next season.The Panthers dream run into this years finals series ended after their late comeback was thwarted by Canberra in a 22-12 semi-final defeat at GIO Stadium on Saturday night.Penrith were staring at an 18-0 with just 20 minutes remaining when back-to-back tries cut the deficit to just six points with seven minutes remaining.However, a lack of discipline at the back end cost arguably the teams most enterprising team a preliminary final with Melbourne, and will instead spend the summer licking their wounds.You never like saying it, but unfortunately we beat ourselves tonight. Eighteen was always going to be hard to run down, coach Anthony Griffin said post-game.It ends a mixed season at the foot of the mountains that included the surprise departures of key men Jamie Soward and James Segeyaro mid-season.But the introduction of 18-year-old Nathan Cleary kick-started a strong back end of the year, while rejuvenated veteran Peter Wallace found a new lease of life at hooker.The pre-season appointment of Matt Moylan as skipper was also an inspirational choice by new coach Anthony Griffin, with thee star fullback also making his State of Origin debut. Yeezy 350 v2 Levne. The Panthers finished the regular season in sixth place, and took a season-high six-game winning streak into the Raiders clash after surviving an elimination final against Canterbury.We definitely developed since the start of the year, skipper Matt Moylan said.A lot of the guys matured throughout the season. Thats a good thing to take out of the season. But the way we finished it tonight, wasnt what we spoke about throughout the week.The focus now turns to 2017, where the inclusion of high-profile recruit in Tamou, together with the return of Kiwi pair Dean Whare and Peta Hiku, is expected to elevate their play.Whare and Hiku missed most of the season after suffering season-ending knee injuries.Were moving in the right direction, Moylan said.I think the players coming through - everyones confident. Weve got some good experience and some good experience coming to the club next year as well.Its a step forward, but were going to have to work hard in the off-season and use this as motivation to get back to the finals and play that footy we want to play.
