ST. Ben Revere Jersey . LOUIS - A former Anheuser-Busch executive and a prominent lawyer, both experienced in dealing with the NFL, have been tapped by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to consider options that will ensure the future of pro football in St. Louis.Nixon announced the appointment Wednesday of former A-B president David Peacock and suburban St. Louis attorney Robert Blitz to analyze the troublesome stadium issue that is threatening to send the St. Louis Rams packing, and to present options within 60 days.We are prepared to look at serious options to remain an NFL city, Nixon said.Rams coach Jeff Fisher was staying out of it, saying after practice Wednesday the team needed to prepare for this weeks game at Arizona. Fisher said the issue hadnt been discussed with players.Their focus, as well as the staffs focus, is on Arizona, Fisher said.Fisher had no reaction on a personal level, either.Again, Im focused on the game, OK? Fisher said. Again, Im in no place to comment. Im coaching this team, this teams playing the Cardinals, and thats where we are with that.Most players said they were powerless, that the decision was out of their hands, although one player said, not for attribution: Rams aint going nowhere.Middle linebacker James Laurinaitis said the news was exciting for a phenomenal fan base that deserves a winning football team and a first-class stadium.But we have no say in it, Laurinaitis said. Its a start, but our bigger concern is the Arizona Cardinals. They have one loss.The organization issued a non-committal statement Wednesday night that read, We have spoken with the Governors office and we will meet with the task force.Nixon said Peacock worked directly with the league on advertising and marketing while with A-B, and is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame advisory board. Blitz was part of the legal team that helped bring the Rams to St. Louis and is legal counsel to the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority.The Rams moved to St. Louis from Los Angeles in 1995. Early that season, what is now known as the Edward Jones Dome opened. The stadium was built with tax money and is operated by the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission.The 30-year lease between the convention commission and the Rams requires that the stadium be among the top quarter of NFL stadiums, and it clearly isnt. As a result, the team can break the lease after this season — and potentially move. Rumours of a return to Los Angeles have swirled.I let the guys upstairs take care of it, guard Rodger Saffold said. This is all I know, St. Louis is all I know, so it doesnt matter whether its here or there I play for the Rams.Negotiations about upgrades began in early 2012. The commission proposed a new glass addition, outdoor terraces and a huge new scoreboard — improvements of less than $200 million. It proposed that the Rams pick up half the cost.The Rams countered with a far more elaborate plan that included a sliding roof, reconfigured seating and other amenities. The Rams didnt estimate the cost, but city officials said it would be at least $700 million. The convention commission informed the Rams last year that the dome would not get the upgrades that the team requested.Recent speculation, including on TV and radio talk shows and in newspaper columns, has focused on a potential new stadium either in the city or St. Louis County.Its not clear how construction of either dome improvements or a new stadium would be funded. One option would be to extend the funding mechanism for the dome. Repayment for the 30-year bonds that financed it will total $720 million. The state of Missouri pays $12 million annually toward that debt; the city and St. Louis County pay $6 million each.We have funding streams that folks have gotten very used to, Nixon said.Michael Rathbone, policy researcher for the St. Louis-based think-tank Show-Me Institute, said additional public funding would be a mistake.Theres no justification on an economic basis to do so, Rathbone said. It wouldnt generate any economic benefit either through personal income growth or job creation.Nixon said the economic impact of having an NFL team extends long beyond Sunday afternoon, and sends a clear signal that this city is a worldwide player. He said the 60-day deadline for the analysis is important because he wants to communicate options to the Rams before Jan. 28 — the deadline the team set to provide notice of their intent to convert the dome lease to year to year.___Salter reported from Kansas City, Missouri.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Darin Erstad Jersey . The game marks the rare occasion when two homegrown running backs, Jon Cornish of the Calgary Stampeders and Andrew Harris of the B.C. Lions, will start in the West Divisions battle for a Grey Cup berth. Garrett Richards Jersey . - A lot of scenarios ran through Terrell Suggs head when the Baltimore linebacker prepared to face the Pittsburgh Steelers. http://www.baseballangelslockroom.com/brandon-phillips-angels-jersey/ .C. -- Tony Stewart will not race Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway, the third Sprint Cup race hes skipped since his car struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr.KANSAS CITY, Mo. - By the time the Kansas City Chiefs pushed the pause button and looked at the scoreboard on Thursday night, they were already trailing the previously winless Oakland Raiders.Not just trailing, either. They were in a 17-3 hole midway through the third quarter.They rallied down the stretch, even taking a brief lead in the fourth quarter. But a defensive collapse and their offences inability to go the length of the field in the closing minutes led to a humiliating 24-20 defeat, one that knocked Kansas City from first place in the AFC West.We wanted to start off fast and we didnt play like that in the first half, Chiefs linebacker Josh Mauga recalled, and it kind of hurt us.That may be an understatement.We didnt really start the way we wanted to, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith admitted. You know, on the road, we gave them too much momentum, it felt like.When asked to explain the Chiefs slow start, running back Jamaal Charles was stumped.I dont know, you know? Some games are just like that, he said. You learn from those games. Hopefully well learn from it and move on and come back next week against Denver.Yes, the Chiefs get their bitter division rival at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday night, and with them a prime opportunity to move back into a tie atop the AFC West. But unless they are able to solve a troubling trend of slow starts, Peyton Manning and the Broncos could bury them early.The Chiefs are 5-0 when leading at halftime. Theyre 2-4 in all other games.We come back home and then weve got another big division game, and we are about to handle this the right way, Smith said. We can regroup and get it together.Just how do you get it together, though? How do you fix slow starts?After all, its not a tangible problem, something that can be fixed with playcalling alone. It doesnt come down to personnel groups, necessarily, or the scheme for the week.Oftenn, it involves all of those things and more. Huston Street Jersey. In their opener against Tennessee, the Chiefs trailed 10-3 at halftime. They were behind 23-3 by the fourth quarter, when they finally found traction. The result was still a 26-10 loss, one that is even more frustrating now that Kansas City has clawed back into playoff contention.A few weeks ago in Buffalo, the problem popped up again.Kansas City trailed 10-3 at halftime and 13-3 after three quarters, finally coming alive when the game was coming down the stretch. The Chiefs scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns, their defence shut the Bills out and the result was a confidence-building 17-13 victory.The result was better. The way the Chiefs got there was a bit disappointing.Andy Reid has experience just about everything over the course of his coaching career, and even the Chiefs boss has yet to put his finger on the solution to the slow starts.Well, Ive got to make sure that I dial up plays that will help us with that. If you have an opportunity then weve got to execute when given the opportunity, he said. It hits all of us and defensively the same thing. There are things you can do as a coach with play calls and then the guys have to execute; were all in it together that way.Reid shouldered much of the blame for the flop in Oakland, and admitted that we werent as well co-ordinated as we needed to be. But he also said the Chiefs failed to grasp the opportunities that were presented, and that responsibility falls on the players.Youve got to stay on and execute. Thats one area on both sides of the ball we can do better at it. We didnt do a great job there, Reid said. I didnt feel it was a letdown; the guys didnt work hard and all that. It was one of those deals.One of those deals the Chiefs are trying hard to resolve by Sunday night.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
