Ill remember Week 2 of MLS 2014 for three horrific mistakes which led to a trio of critical goals that changed their respective games and condemned the guilty parties to that awful, "no-place-to-hide" feeling. Cheap MLB Jerseys . Interestingly, the culprits were not rookies, but well paid, experienced pros. The first gaffe came in the 24th minute of arguably the biggest early season MLS game in history between Seattle and Toronto. Sounder newcomer Marco Pappa, (with over 100 MLS games, and 39 Guatemalan Caps to his name) attempted a back pass to one of his central defenders. It was woefully short, and instead fell to Jermain Defoe. The new Toronto DP, who had opened the scoring just seven minutes earlier, coolly slotted it home past Stefan Frei. Two-nil, game-winner, 38,000 plus glaring at Pappa...shoulders slumped, head down. Then on Sunday, with the Whitecaps trying to find their rhythm against a frustrating and unified Chivas USA team, another veteran produced an inexplicable brain cramp at the worst possible moment...the last minute before half time. Chivas had been reduced to 10 men after only 13 minutes via a dubious straight red to Agustin Pelletierie. The sending off galvanized Chivas, and further flustered Vancouver who not only failed to create a single first-half chance, they actually conceded more pressure and chances. Then, in that most critical period - the last five minutes of a half - one of the most experienced players on the park coughed up the ball. Nigel Reo-Coker looked to the heavens while Erick Torres busted out his hopelessly awful robot dance...to the "delight" of the handful of friends and family in attendance. It was the Englishmans high-risk, no-reward ball that was snapped up by Mauro Rosales, and before you knew it the team with 10 men was leading. As fate would have it, Reo-Cokers mistake would be cancelled out by another blunder, also from a player you would think might be immune to such a thing. Dani Fragoso, who has plied his trade in Spains lower divisions for 14 seasons, had been on for all of a minute before gifting the ball to Darren Mattocks in his own half. The Jamaican squared it right, and Kekuta Manneh squared the game. When rookies make crushing, result-changing mistakes, its usually the savvy pros who are first to offer consolation. But when its the veterans wearing the goat horns, the same kind of reassuring solace is harder to find in a quiet dressing room. Cheap New England Patriots Jerseys . -- Two-time AL Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana agreed Tuesday to a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles as he tries to come back from the second major operation on his left shoulder. Cheap San Francisco 49ers Jerseys . -- The Sacramento Kings have claimed forward Travis Outlaw off waivers under the NBAs new amnesty provision, filling out the frontcourt with another veteran. http://www.cheapjerseystb.com/?tag=cheap-washington-redskins-jerseys . Napoli beat high-flying Hellas Verona 3-0 to keep up the pressure on the top two while AC Milan had another disappointing night as four goals from teenage forward Domenico Berardi saw relegation-threatened Sassuolo come back from two goals down to win 4-3.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - On a defence in the middle of a generational shift, Lawrence Timmons is the constant.The faces that mentored the Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker when he broke into the NFL in 2007 are gone. James Farrior and Larry Foote have been replaced by youngsters Ryan Shazier, Sean Spence and Vince Williams.Now its Timmons who is among the elder statesmen in the meeting room. It is Timmons who is making the defensive calls. It is Timmons who is serving as 6 feet, 1 inch and 234 pounds of duct tape, going wherever is required to fix whatever problem arises.And it is Timmons at last who has finally filled the one gaping hole on his resume: Pro Bowler. The 28-year-old earned his first invitation to Hawaii on Wednesday, eight seasons into a steadily spectacular career that is no longer being taken for granted.From Day 1, LT has always worked hard, and you appreciate it, Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward said. And you want someone like that to be rewarded for it. And we were all happy to see Lawrence make it. There are a lot of good linebackers in this league right now, but LT has been one of the centre guys for a long time right now. So, it was long overdue.So much so that Hall of Fame defensive co-ordinator Dick LeBeau long ago developed a stump speech for Timmons, who leads the Steelers (10-5) with a team-high 121 tackles to go with two sacks and an endless stream of quietly sublime plays where his ability to do his job has freed his teammates up to do theirs.In my opinion, he can get out on the field with anybody in the National Football League and play well, LeBeau said. And I think thats what an All-Pro is, and Ive said that repeatedly.Even if Timmons rarely says anything at all. There is a thankless quality that comes with playing inside linebacker for the Steelers, where the outside LBs are the ones who rack up the game-turning sacks and serve as the de facto intimidators, a lineage that stretches from James Harrison to Joey Porter to Greg Lloyd to Jack Ham.Timmons main responsibbility is to chase down running backs or drop into coverage. Cheap Los Angeles Rams Jerseys. Only occasionally does LeBeau allow Timmons to unleash his freakish speed on a dead sprint to the backfield. Yet theres little doubt Timmons could be among the best pass rushers in the league if let loose. Hes shown flashes while filling in on the outside at times the last few years because of injury, though its always back to the inside whenever there are enough healthy bodies around him.He just does whatever we ask him to do, even though that inside backer position was probably his best position the year that we were strapped outside with some injuries, and he went and played great outside, LeBeau said.While Pittsburghs defence is no longer the force it was a few years ago, the Steelers have improved steadily against the run since early in the season. They are one of six teams to allow fewer than 100 yards rushing on average and are 6-0 in their last six games when opponents fail to reach 100 yards on the ground.The improvement has as much to do with Timmons role in helping the young guys around him figure out what theyre supposed to be doing as it does his textbook tackling. Consider the next four inside linebackers behind Timmons on the depth chart Shazier, Williams, Spence and Arthur Moats began the season with five years of NFL experience combined.Hes somebody you turn to, said Spence, who is playing regularly for the first time after missing 2012 and 2013 with a devastating knee injury. Hes so productive and he knows whats expected here. You ask him a question and he always knows the answer.And he knows how to prioritize. In typical fashion, he downplayed the biggest individual achievement of his career. And given a choice, Timmons hopes hes busy playing for a seventh Steelers title instead of hanging out in paradise.Ill take the Super Bowl, Timmons said with a smile.___Freelance writer Dale Grdnic in Pittsburgh contributed to this report.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
