BEREA, Ohio - Browns cornerback Justin Gilbert is ending his season confused, offended and determined. Cheap Hornets Jerseys .Nobody said its easy being an NFL rookie.The No. 8 overall pick in this years draft, Gilbert has been a major disappointment, so much so that a few of his teammates were publicly critical of him in recent days, saying he had wasted his first season.Following practice on Friday, Gilbert said he was hurt by some of those sharp remarks and promised to atone for his missteps.Im not mad at anyone about it, I brought it upon myself and I can take that and roll with it, he said. I messed up, but I can promise my teammates Im going to make it right.The Browns used their first pick this year to select the 6-foot, 202-pound Gilbert, a dynamic defender and return specialist at Oklahoma State. The team believed that by putting him on the opposite side of Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden the Browns would have one of the leagues toughest defensive backfields. But it didnt go according to plan as Gilbert made just two starts, was passed on the depth chart by undrafted free agent KWaun Williams and Pierre Desir, a fourth-round pick, and was benched.He didnt perform on the field and had a questionable work ethic away from it.Gilbert refused to get into any specifics about what may have prompted safety Donte Whitner and linebacker Karlos Dansby — two of the teams most respected veterans — to speak out about him. Browns coach Mike Pettine said he didnt have a problem with any teammate giving tough love to another.Im not a person to judge my teammates and put it out there in the media like that, Gilbert said. If I have a problem with somebody, I would address them face to face and thats just all I can say about that.Gilbert said part of the problem could be that hes not outgoing and his quietness may have rubbed others the wrong way. Gilbert felt some of the criticism may have been a little too personal.I think it may have crossed the line a little bit, he said, but at the same time were all here to do the same thing and thats win and provide for our families. So some of the things were right and some of the things couldve been kept to themselves.Gilbert would not address if he has been late to meetings.We keep family business in the family, he said.Earlier this week, rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel acknowledged he may have misjudged the transition to the NFL and said he intends to work harder in the off-season. Gilbert agrees with Manziel and that he may have taken some things for granted.Not anymore.I think I came along as the season went on and I think I made some pretty good plays down the stretch that werent really noticed or talked about like the plays that I didnt make that were talked about at the beginning of the season, so its just how things went I guess, he said. Ive just got to come back next season and turn it all around. ... I can assure everyone here that I will work a lot harder, in the off-season and during the season. Thats one promise I can make.Does he want to be great?I will be great, he said.Gilbert said his enthusiasm for playing with the Browns has not been dampened. If anything, hes more determined to show the team he was worthy of a high pick.It definitely sparked a flame inside of myself to want to prove a lot of people wrong and a lot of doubters, he said. Thats going to be one of my main goals next year. I think its just a little, minor setback for a major comeback.NOTES: Versatile CB Buster Skrine, an unrestricted free agent following the season, said he hopes to re-sign with Cleveland. Browns defensive co-ordinator Jim ONeil would like to see that happen. I would love to bring Buster back, he said. Hes one of my favourite guys on the defence. He embodies Play Like a Brown.

Pearce had a career-high four hits and drove in two runs, and Wei-Yin Chen shut down Texas again as the Orioles completed a four-game sweep of the Rangers with a 5-2 victory on Thursday night.DALLAS -- Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff was thinking about a shootout even before his club faced the undefeated San Jose Sharks. Ruff had the idea that if the game was forced to a tiebreaker, he would use rookie Alex Chiassson as one of his first three shooters. The opportunity presented itself and paid off immediately as Chiasson was the only player to score in the shootout, lifting the Stars to a 4-3 victory on Thursday night. "Before the game we knew he was going to be number two or three," Ruff said. "He had a goal in the shootout during the preseason (against Florida). "Chaisser took me off the hook with that one." The Sharks are no longer perfect, but with the Colorado Avalanche losing at home to Detroit, San Jose is the only NHL team without a regulation defeat this season. The Stars improved to 3-3, and the Sharks fell to 6-0-1, one game shy of tying their best mark of 7-0, established last season. "Its not about the streak," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. "Its about living for today. Were disappointed we didnt get the two points. We probably didnt play well enough." Chiasson was the only one of the six skaters to score in the shootout, beating Antti Niemi by firing a shot just inside the right post. "I always like to come with speed," Chiasson said. "I think it shows the goalie youve got a couple moves if youre coming fast. I just got my head up and let it go." Chiasson is Dallas leader with four goals in six games this season. He has 10 goals in 13 career NHL games. The Stars outshot San Jose 31-29 in regulation. The Sharks took all five shots in overtime but couldnt beat Dan Ellis even though Dallas was short-handed for the final 1:02 of overtime. "You had to make a good read and try to stay big, try to stay patient and force them to shoot," Ellis said of his shootout strategy. San Jose, which scored eight power-play goals in its first six games, was 0 for 5 against Dallas. The game hadnt started anywhere near as well for the Stars, who came back from one-goal deficits three times. San Jose took a 1-0 lead just 9 seconds into the game. Off the opening faceoff, Tyler Kennedy skated along the right wing and shot the puck past Ellis for his first goal this season. "Its a tough start," Ruff said. "I lliked the fact that we dug in and were able to keep coming at them. Cheap Hornets Jerseys Authentic. Its a sign of a team with a will to win." Ellis took the blame for the quick strike. "Its not a goal that you want to let in," he said. "I need to be a little sharper in those first few minutes to give ourselves a chance to get our feet under us." Dallas tied it on Tyler Seguins rebound goal at 16:44. His third goal extended his point streak to five games. The tie lasted barely a minute as the Sharks took a 2-1 lead when Matthew Nieto skated to the top of the slot and fired a shot off the right post and in at 17:52. The Stars Cody Eakin and his line with Chiasson and Ray Whitney tied it for the second and third times, in the second period. At 1:53, Trevor Daley scored his first goal this season on a rebound of Eakins shot. Eakin scored his second goal to make it 3-3 at 12:58. "Its tough," Sharks captain Joe Thornton said, "especially when you score a goal and they come back and score on the next shift. Just try to continue the momentum, and we didnt do that." Daley was involved in another goal at 12:31 of the period when San Joses Patrick Marleau attempted a wraparound. The play was first ruled a save by Ellis. A review showed that the puck had gone off Daleys skate and across the goal line. The goal was the sixth this season for Marleau. He and Pittsburghs Sidney Crosby are the only NHL players with at least one point in all seven games played. The Sharks had entered the game averaging better than 41 shots per game and allowing fewer than 24. "This is great for us," Chiasson said of the victory. "Weve been playing up and down throughout the year. Hopefully we can keep that momentum going into this weekend." Niemi has played every minute in goal for the Sharks this season. NOTES: Kennedys goal was the fastest recorded against the Stars franchise during its 47 seasons in Minnesota and Dallas. The earliest goal in San Joses 22 seasons was by Stephane Matteau 8 seconds into a game against St. Louis on Jan. 11, 2000. ...
