The Chicago Bears hired Vic Fangio as their new defensive co-ordinator Tuesday, hopi
#1
The Chicago Bears hired Vic Fangio as their new defensive co-ordinator Tuesday, hoping the veteran coach who spent the last four seasons with San Francisco can breathe some life into the once-storied unit. Fake Adidas Jerseys .The Bears said they have reached an agreement with the 56-year-old Fangio to take over the Bears struggling defence under new coach John Fox. Terms were not disclosed.Fangio had been a candidate for the defensive co-ordinator job with the Washington Redskins, who hired Joe Barry on Tuesday. Last week, Fangio was bypassed for the 49ers coaching job, given to defensive line coach Jim Tomsula.Fangio just finished his fourth season as 49ers defensive co-ordinator after coming from Stanford with former coach Jim Harbaugh before the 2011 season. San Francisco had one of the NFLs top defences during his tenure, but missed the playoffs at 8-8 last season following three straight NFC championship game appearances.The 49ers defence struggled to find any consistency last season after the injuries of star linebackers NaVorro Bowman and Patrick Willis, and the nine-game suspension of linebacker Aldon Smith to start the year. Nose tackles Ian Williams and Glenn Dorsey went down, too, and so did cornerback Tramaine Brock and top rookie and first-round draft pick defensive back Jimmie Ward.It usually happens in droves that way sometimes, Fangio said about the rash of injuries. Like I said, Ive been in the NFL a long time. Theres been other years like this. You cant let it get your dauber down. You just have to keep your focus, keep the blinders on and do the best you can do. ... Its challenging, but you have to deal with the circumstances youre dealt with whenever theyre dealt to you.Fangio has 28 years of NFL coaching experience with 15 seasons as a defensive co-ordinator — Carolina (1995-98), Indianapolis (1999-2001), Houston (2002-05) and San Francisco. He also worked for the Saints and Ravens.During his time in San Francisco, the 49ers were second in the NFL in scoring defence (17.4 points per game), third in total defence (310.2 yards per game) and fourth in takeaways (122). The 49ers also had the top run defence (92.0 ypg) and allowed the second-lowest yards per carry (3.78) — numbers that Bears fans can appreciate after all the years of watching everyone from Butkus to Urlacher stifle opponents. The 49ers also led the NFL in fewest first downs allowed (1,143) over those four seasons.Fangio will now be asked to reshape the Bears into the same kind of stingy, ball-hawking, hard-hitting bunch he had in San Francisco.Chicago made sweeping changes last month, firing general manager Phil Emery and coach Marc Trestman after missing the playoffs for the seventh time in eight years during a mostly miserable season that ended with a 5-11 record.While quarterback Jay Cutler and the rest of the offence was lacklustre at best, the defence under co-ordinator Mel Tucker put up some truly awful numbers: The Bears allowed 442 points, the second most in franchise history behind a team-record 478 one year earlier. They also joined the 1923 Rochester Jeffersons as the only teams to give up 50 or more in back-to-back games.Bringing in Jared Allen among others during the last off-season did not pay off, either, and a spotty record in the draft left the Bears lacking depth.The Bears also reached agreements with several assistant coaches: Sam Garnes, assistant defensive backs; Dave Magazu, offensive line coach; and Derius Swinton II, assistant special teams coach.Assistant head coach/special teams co-ordinator Joe DeCamillis, defensive co-ordinator Mel Tucker, tight ends coach Andy Bischoff, linebackers coach Reggie Herring and assistant special teams coach Dwayne Stukes were told they would not return to the coaching staff.___Online:AP NFL websites: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Fake Jerseys Outlet . The Los Angeles Clippers showed them just how ugly that life could be. Jared Dudley scored a season-high 21 points, Chris Paul added 16 points and 17 assists, and the Clippers jumped all over the Bulls in Roses absence for a 121-82 victory Sunday. Fake Jerseys Website . Neither side would publicly confirm or deny any discussions were taking place, until the near unexpected happened. On Saturday night sources confirmed to TSN, the league and players agreed to terms on a new, tentative CBA, pending ratification by the unions players. A league source confirmed the CFLs board of governors must also ratify any potential agreement. http://www.fakejersey.com/fake-nhl-jerseys/ . Three pitches later, he was hugging Mike Napoli at home plate after his teammates winning home run. Napoli and Ortiz hit consecutive homers with one out in the 10th inning and the Boston Red Sox rallied past Minnesota 2-1 Wednesday, sending the Twins to their fifth straight loss.BERLIN -- Arjen Robben and Thomas Mueller struck in extra time for Bayern Munich to beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the German Cup final on Saturday, giving their side the double in Pep Guardiolas first season in charge. Robben scored in the 107th minute when Jerome Boateng intercepted Roman Weidenfellers throw out for Kevin Grosskreutz, and then crossed for the Dutchman at the far post. It set up a frenetic finale with Dortmund pushing for the equalizer that would have taken the game to penalties. Marco Reus came agonizingly close to equalizing in the final minute when his shot was deflected just over. Mueller then rounded Weidenfeller to wrap up the win in extra time injury time. Dortmund might have been awarded a goal in the second half. Mats Hummels thought hed scored with a header but Dante cleared on or behind the line. The score wasnt awarded though TV replays suggested the ball crossed the line. "If that goal from Dortmund was awarded it would have changed everything," Guardiola acknowledged. Bayern avenged its humiliating 5-2 loss to Dortmund in the 2012 final with its record 16th German Cup final win. "The most important thing is that we won. Its always something special. We took a lot of flak in the last weeks," Bayern captain Philipp Lahm said, referring to criticism after its Champions League loss to Real Madrid and drop of form after claiming the Bundesliga title with a record seven games to spare. Both sides effectively nulliffied the others attacking threat. Fake Football Jerseys. Robben posed Bayerns biggest danger going forward but was dealt with adequately by Hummels or thwarted at the last by Weidenfeller, who made crucial saves. Robert Lewandowski, playing his last game for Dortmund before joining Bayern on July 1, was kept in check by Boateng and Dante, with Javi Martinez also helping out in the Bavarian sides defence. Bayern, which beat Stuttgart in last years final, created marginally the better chances in the first half. Franck Ribery, who came on for the injured Lahm, crossed for Mueller at the beginning of the second half only for Weidenfeller to save from close range. Reus struck the crossbar with a deflected free kick, though Manuel Neuer, playing in his fourth consecutive German Cup final, had it covered. Dortmund was then left to rue Hummels "goal" that wasnt given. "Well still celebrate because it was a great season," Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp said. Bayern players celebrated the clubs 10th league and cup double by hoisting Guardiola high in the air and dousing each other in beer. "I dont particularly like the beer showers but thats how it is," said Guardiola, who was drenched by Dante. Boateng said the players would "celebrate without end. Weve won the double in my hometown. There are no words for it. Compliments to Dortmund, they made it very difficult. But in the end, we had the bigger chances and we deserved it." ' ' '
