We say it every year, but I think this year is going to be

RENTON, Wash. Kenneth Faried Jersey . -- The Seattle Seahawks have called a news conference for Friday morning amid a report they have reached a contract extension with coach Pete Carroll. NFL Network reported Thursday night, citing a "source," that Carroll and the Seahawks had reached agreement on a contract extension. Carrolls original five-year deal with Seattle was set to expire after the 2014 season. The Seahawks announcement did not specify the nature of the news conference and team officials would not confirm the report of an extension for Carroll. Carroll reached the top of the NFL last season, leading the Seahawks to their first Super Bowl title. Lured away from USC in 2010 with the chance at complete control over the football operations, Carroll tore down then rebuilt the Seahawks roster into one of the best in the NFL. Hes 38-26 in four regular seasons with Seattle and 5-2 in the playoffs. Carroll has made competition the benchmark of his time in Seattle. Its why quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman have become stars -- because they were given opportunities in Carrolls system. Carroll, 62, is the second oldest coach in the NFL, but rarely appears his age. He came to Seattle because of the chance he didnt have in his two previous stops as an NFL head coach: control. Seattle gave him the reins to the franchise, and hired him before adding general manager John Schneider to the mix, a relationship that has been marked by stability and success. Carroll lacked control in his previous positions with New England and the New York Jets. But after a decade of winning with the Trojans and having that control, it was something Carroll demanded if he was going to get back into the professional ranks and the Seahawks were willing. Seattle also let Carroll imprint his attitude on the locker room. He wanted a fun atmosphere filled with accountability. Competition was at the crux of everything Carroll did from the day he inherited a 5-11 team. Carroll took Seattle to the playoffs in his first season despite a 7-9 regular season record. The Seahawks plateaued in 2011 going 7-9 again but took a jump in 2012 after drafting Wilson. The Seahawks went 11-5 in the regular season and reached the divisional round of the playoffs. The roster turnover had been completed and there were massive expectations going into 2013. Seattle matched and surpassed those expectations. Carroll guided Seattle to 13 wins in the regular season, the NFC West title and home-field advantage in the playoffs. Seattle knocked off New Orleans in the divisional round, then edged San Francisco in the NFC title game to reach its second Super Bowl. At the Super Bowl, Carroll got to celebrate the way he did watching USCs run of dominance in the mid-2000s. Seattles defence stifled the highest scoring offence in NFL history, humbling Denver in a 43-8 beating to give Seattle its first title. After the season Carroll sounded as if he was locked in to a long future with the Seahawks. "Were trying to do something really good for a really long time and we want to see how far we can go and someday, we look back and see what we accomplished," Carroll said. Will Barton Jersey . Viewers in the Canadiens region can watch the game on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt and listen on TSN 690. The Canadiens have won three in a row and four of their last five games and recently put the finishing touches on a 3-1-0 road trip. Wilson Chandler Jersey . The rookie is rewarding their faith with a stellar first season. MacKinnon had a goal and two assists, Jamie McGinn had two goals and an assist, and Colorado beat the Buffalo Sabres 7-1 on Saturday. http://www.authenticnuggetsproshop.com/Tyler-Lydon-Jersey/ . -- Hee Young Park topped the leaderboard at 8 under Friday in the suspended second round of the Kingsmill Championship.Davi Millsaps went into the Monster Energy Cup with low expectations, treating it almost as a warm-up for the Supercross season.Of course he wanted to win the race — all riders do — but after spending 18 months away from racing because of injuries and running with a new team for the first time, getting a feel for racing again was the main priority.Turned out to be some warm-up.By taking the final moto and finishing top-5 in the other two, Millsaps won the Monster Energy Cup in October, earning a $100,000 paycheque while giving his Supercross season a huge kick-start.Honestly, it was a surprise to myself and everyone else, Millsaps said. But it was a really good race.The 17-race Supercross season kicks off Saturday at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California. The schedule also includes a stop at Levis Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, races in consecutive weekends in Atlanta and a switch from Qualcomm Stadium to Petco Park in San Diego.Once the first gate drops, Millsaps will be one of the favourites in what could be the most wide-open season to date.Ryan Villopoto, the four-time defending Supercross champion, retired from the series and went to race in Europe to compete for the FIM Motocross World Championship. Two-time champion James Stewart also will be missing after being suspended 16 months for a failed drug test.That leaves two riders who have previously won Supercross titles: Ryan Dungey and two-time champion Chad Reed.Millsaps finished second in 2012 and 2013, and is healthy again, so he will likely have a say in the championship race. Trey Canard is one of the series best young riders and was in line for a $1 million payday before wrecking in the final moto at the Monster Energy Cup, so expect to see him competing for a title.Justin Barcia, Eli Tomac and Ken Roczen also will be back and a new crop of talented riders will be makking the jump from the 250cc series, including Blake Baggett, who will race for Yoshimura Suzuki with Stewart out. Nikola Jokic Jersey. We say it every year, but I think this year is going to be incredible, said Dave Prater, director of Supercross for AMA Supercross. It should be wide open.Millsaps put his name in the mix by winning the Monster Energy Cup, but it was a long road back to get there.After finishing second in the 2013 Supercross season, he underwent surgery to fix a lingering knee injury, basically having his leg strengthened to prevent needing knee replacement surgery.The 26-year-old rider from Orlando, Florida, was out for nearly four months, then broke his foot and dislocated his ankle. Once Millsaps came back from that, he tore up his other knee and needed surgery.As he started riding again, his foot continued to hurt, so he had surgery to try fixing it. Then another. And another.It was miserable. Just the fact that every time I thought I fixed it, it came back, Millsaps said. Its definitely hard mentally to get past it.The final surgery finally fixed Millsaps foot and he was able to start riding outdoors in July. He also left Rockstar Energy Racing for Monster Energy Kawasaki, essentially filling the spot left by Villopotos departure.Millsaps had less than a month with his new team before the Monster Energy Cup and missed part of that time because he got sick, but meshed quickly.The team was already a well-oiled machine after winning four Supercross titles with Villopoto and Millsaps made a seamless transition, finishing third and fourth the first two races before taking the final moto and the big paycheque.Basically two years off a motorcycle, jump on a brand new one and win your first race, with everyone there really is really impressive, Prater said. You can never write Davi off. He seems to get better with age. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
