Post QB Brian Hoyer and DB Jim Leonhard
FRISCO, Texas -- Mauro Diaz scored in the 84th minute to lead unbeaten FC Dallas to a 2-1 victory over Portland Timbers on Saturday night. Dallas 10 points leads Major League Soccer. Dallas (3-0-1) is off to its best start since 2006, where it also logged 10 points through the first four games. "Weve started well and were happy," first-year Dallas coach Oscar Pareja said. "We know where we are and we dont want to think too much about what we have not done before. Were developing a culture of taking it one game at a time, without giving importance to what happened last season or what will happen. " Portland (0-1-3), in its fourth MLS season, is off to its worst start in its young history. The teams played the second half with 10 men apiece after Portland left back Michael Harrington and Dallas right winger Je-Vaughn Watson were ejected for an off-the-ball fight with about five minutes left in the first half. The decision ended Harringtons streak of 1,749 consecutive minutes played for Portland. Head referee Storin Stoica told a pool reporter that the pair was ejected after Watson struck Harrington and the defender retaliated. "It was basically just a little shoving match," Harrington said. "Me and Watson were running out (during a goal kick). He kind of took a little push at me -- Im not sure why -- and I kind of just pushed him back. It wasnt anything too serious." Watson echoed Harringtons thoughts. "There was nothing there to give a red card for," said Watson, who picked up his third career red card. "Soccer is a competitive sport. He was pulling on me and I was pulling on him, so it was on the ball the first time, so I dont see thats a red card. I was saying before he gave the red card, I was saying, if youre going to do something, thats a warning. Thats not a red card." Dallas went ahead in the third minute of first-half stoppage time on a Blas Perez header, but the Timbers tied it in the 67th minute when Dallas defender Matt Hedges deflected a Maximiliano Urruti pass into his own net. The Timbers outshot Dallas 15-9, including 10-5 in the second half, but it was Diazs late effort that won the game. After the ball fell to him near the top of the box, he dribbled to his right, and then fired a right-footed shot across his body and past the outstretched hands of Timbers goalkeeper Andrew Weber. "We had chances to go (up) 2-1," Portland coach Caleb Porter said. "At the end of the day I credit Mauro Diaz, who pulled off a play. Players win games. He pulled off a play and that was the difference in the game." Graham Glasgow Jersey . The two-time Olympic halfpipe gold medallist informed ESPN on Monday he plans to compete in Apsen, Colo. Quandre Diggs Jersey . Every. Single. Game. Thats 1,230 in total to cover the regular season. The man is Corey Sznajder, a soft-spoken 23-year-old Salisbury University grad who lives in Annapolis, Maryland and has been charting zone entries and zone exits throughout the NHL. I love big projects, he said. No kidding. At the 2013 Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, I met Eric Tulsky, who presented research on the value of controlled zone entries (short answer: about twice as valuable to enter with control of the puck rather than dumping it in) and Sznajder had charted a couple hundred games that were included in that study. http://www.authenticnfllionslockroom.co ... te-Jersey/. Pistorius denied the allegation that he said to the close friend of the girlfriend he killed: "How can you sleep at night?" The accusation by Kim Myers provided a bizarre twist during the trial of the world-famous double-amputee Olympian, who is facing 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder for shooting dead Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model, at his home last year. D.J. Hayden Jersey . There are practical ideas, like this Chewbaca inspired Star Wars jerseys. Star Wars themed jerseys for the Toledo Mud Hens. Matthew Stafford Jersey .The ruling takes effect on Jan. 1 and stems from the debate surrounding Paralympic champion Markus Rehm, an amputee who won the national long jump title competing with a carbon-fiber prosthesis.BEREA, Ohio - Andrew Hawkins is one of the smallest players on the Browns roster, but hes made one of the biggest impressions so far this season.Through Clevelands first three games, the 5-foot-7, 180-pound Hawkins leads the team in receiving with 21 catches for 244 yards.Its early still, we still have a lot of work to do, but Im very blessed, Hawkins said Thursday as he and his teammates were packing up to enjoy their bye week.The Browns signed the 28-year-old Hawkins to an offer sheet in March, and when the Bengals chose not to exercise first-refusal rights on the restricted free agent, Cleveland landed the receiver, who actually began his career with the Browns as a tryout player at the teams 2008 rookie minicamp.Hawkins also spent two years (2009-10) in the CFL with the Montreal Alouettes and current Bears coach Marc Trestman, along with appearing on Michael Irvins reality TV show, 4th and Long, in 2009.Coming from where I came from, being on the couch praying just for an opportunity to be on the practice squad, and that taking years to get accomplished, Hawkins said. Im always in awe, just being in this situation, I always have to pinch myself because theres times I didnt think this would be possible.So far, hes certainly taking advantage of the situation. Hawkins has developed chemistry on the field with quarterback Brian Hoyer, as he is averaging seven catches a game.And while he has naturally played a lot of the slot position in his four years in the NFL, the Browns have him lining up all over the place, including the outside.His ability to beat man-to-man coverage, thats all it takes to play on the outside, wide receivers coach Mike McDaniel said. He has the speed to do that. I wouldnt say its surprised me. Hes lived up to my expectations since hes been in-house.Hawkins does display a surprising amount of physicality for a player of his size.Hell give you everything he has, McDaaniel said.dddddddddddd Im sure if you asked DBs that hes played against, you go through warmups and you see a smaller stature. Youre just not expecting that feistiness. He is a football player.Hes not just a slot, skill, finesse player. Hes played defence. Hes played offence. Hes not afraid of the physicality and will do whatever it takes to make both him and his team successful.Hawkins surprising start has been exactly what the Browns were hoping for, as they have had to contend with the suspension of Josh Gordon. Though he has enjoyed a featured role in Gordons absence, Hawkins is looking forward to having the leagues leading receiver from last season back on the field with him.Josh is an incredible receiver, one of the best receivers in this league, Hawkins said. If I had my choice, hed be here with me right now. Hes that much of a difference-maker. Honestly, I cant wait to have Josh back, thats all I know.Three games is a small sample size for anyone, Hawkins knows that. But hell be doing everything he can to try and sustain his success as the season continues.All I kind of focus on is myself, and what I can control, Hawkins said. I feel like its my duty to give everything I have. I think its just a matter of kind of my journey to get here. It was a very tough road and I dont take anything for granted.NOTES: Coach Mike Pettine had a message for his players before the team went into the bye week. They represent not just themselves, but their families and the Cleveland Browns when theyre out of the building. I just keep stressing it to them. Surround yourself with good people. Make good choices. Its a good group, and I think that the time off will be well spent. . QB Brian Hoyer and DB Jim Leonhard got work at the holder position in practice Thursday as part of a normal routine. . LB Craig Robertson (birth of a child) and QB Connor Shaw (illness) returned to practice.
