A day after one of the worst seasons in Edmonton Eskimos history merci

A day after one of the worst seasons in Edmonton Eskimos history mercifully ended, players quietly filed out of the dressing room Sunday, garbage bags over their shoulders, knowing that for some of them it may be the final time theyre in the room. Frank Kaminsky Jersey . And its not just the players who leave with doubts. The future of the entire coaching staff, from head man Kavis Reed down, is uncertain after a season that ended 4-14 and included just one win in nine home games. As the players packed their belongings and headed for various locations, many of them could only shake their heads and wonder just what went wrong with a season that began with promise but then hit the skids with an eight-game losing streak. "What went wrong? I have no answer for that," said veteran defensive back T. J. Hill. "Im quite sure there were a lot of things that went wrong a but it was more that things didnt go our way as planned." Reed said if one was to go back game by game "theres a yard here, a couple of seconds there, a penalty here a theres so many minute things that really magnified through the year." They lost five straight games by five points or less but in virtually every late-game critical situation they came up short. "We had chances early in the season to close out games and didnt take advantage of it so that wasnt helpful," said first-year quarterback Mike Reilly who started every game. "We showed we could be productive and we could do some really good things offensively. The consistency is not what it needs to be. For the first year of us all working together, the positives are weve shown that we can do some good stuff." Calling it the hardest season of football hes ever played, Reilly, who led the CFL with 700 rushing yards but was hit more than probably any other quarterback, said one of the positives is that he "never once saw a guy in this room quit." Linebacker J.S. Sherritt, last years best defensive player in the CFL who missed several games this year with a broken thumb, said the season could only be summed up from the players perspective in one word: disappointing. "Obviously its extremely disappointing but you have to learn a lesson from it or its a waste," he said. "You either learn from it and get better or you just fade away. I know in my heart we have the right core people. We have to make changes and get better but I know we have a good team here." The players acknowledge there has to be personnel changes and some of those will be the result of the expansion draft with Ottawa coming back into the league. Reed met with his assistants Sunday morning to begin the post-season analysis of players and in his season-ending meeting with reporters didnt sound overly confident of returning as head coach. "There is no such thing as confidence in this business. What will happen will happen. The one thing Im most proud of is I found a way to quiet the noise to make certain that the locker room remained intact and that the health of this franchise remained at the forefront. There is nothing that Kavis Reed did that Im not proud of. If this is my last year here I believe in the three years Ive been here weve put this franchise back on the track it needs to be and it will enjoy success." He insisted he would not change a thing he did this season in terms of the building process that continued under a first-year quarterback and a rookie general manager, Ed Hervey, who was highly critical of the teams offensive line right from training camp but did little to help improve that unit. Herveys future is also uncertain, as is that of team president Len Rhodes. "There will be deliberations about all coaching staff," said Reed. "We continue to work until someone comes and gets the keys or someone comes and escorts you out the door. Youre going to be judged on Ws and Ls. There isnt going to be that investigation into whether youre a good coach or not, its Ws and Ls. Its as simple as that." Among the few bright spots was the performance of slotback Fred Stamps who, despite missing three games, was the leagues leading receiver with 1,259 yards, the fifth straight year he has surpassed 1,100 yards. Cody Zeller Jersey .C. -- LeBron James called comments on an audio recording of a man identified as Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling "appalling" and said hes not sure if he would suit up for the remainder of the NBA playoffs if he played for the Clippers. Glen Rice Jersey . -- Shanshan Feng was alone in her opinion about the pin positions in the Kraft Nabisco Championship. http://www.hornetsteamproshop.com/Customized/ . -- One shot came out of bottom of a cactus, the other from the base of a desert bush with rocks scattered around it.DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins fans are venting on Twitter and complaining on radio about the team owner, the coach, the general manager and even the backup left guard. A harassment scandal and a loss to a winless team can have that effect. Already staggered by a scandal that prompted an NFL investigation, the Dolphins must now try to bounce back from their worst loss of the season. Rather than taking out their frustrations of recent days on the hapless Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Dolphins came out flat Monday night, dug a 15-0 hole and lost 22-19. The loss left the Dolphins at 4-5, with the five defeats coming in the past six games. Fed-up fans took the latest loss hard, and many said owner Stephen Ross should fire everyone, himself included. "Im happy fans are passionate," second-year coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday. "We have a loyal fan base. We all want the same thing. We want to have a team that is consistently competing for championships and represents the organization the right way on and off the field." With the harassment case involving offensive linemen Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito likely to remain unresolved for at least a couple of weeks, Philbin will try to salvage the season beginning Sunday at home against San Diego. Philbin, now 11-14 at Miami, won a vote of confidence before Mondays game from Ross, but that could change depending on the findings of Ted Wells, the NFL special investigator. Wells will meet this week with Martin, who is with his family in Los Angeles and receiving counselling for emotional issues. Ross also plans to meet with Martin. That meeting was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but at the NFLs request it has been postponed until after Wells gets together with Martin. The second-year pro suddenly left the team two weeks ago, and his attorney has alleged Martin was harassed daily by teammates, including Incognito, who has been suspended. On Monday, Ross announced the formation of two committees to examine the Dolphins locker room culture. In recent days, players have been virtually unanimous in saying it doesnt need to be changed. "I think it was more a situation between a couple of guys," linebacker Philip Wheeler said Tuesday. "I dont think it was a locker room situation." "Ive had a great time in this lockerr room so far," fourth-year defensive lineman Jared Odrick said, "and I think most people see it the same. Charlotte Hornets Jerseys. " The case inspired a national debate about workplace bullying, attracting a throng of media again Tuesday. The team, however, declined to blame the case on its latest loss. "Yes, we faced a lot of distractions," quarterback Ryan Tannehill said, "but leading up to this game, the last few days Ive had a good feeling that the guys were ready to play." A bigger factor might have been the absence of two starters in a line that was already lousy. At Tampa, the Dolphins netted a franchise record-low 2 yards in 14 carries. Thats 5.1 inches per carry. At that rate, they would need 71 carries to get a first down. "Five inches?" offensive co-ordinator Mike Sherman said. "Thats disheartening." Nate Garner whiffed on several blocks filling in for Incognito at left guard, and no one on the line seemed to get any push downfield. "Not a good job by us," right tackle Tyson Clabo said. There are plenty of other issues. Run defence is supposedly the teams strength, but Miami allowed 140 yards on the ground against the injury-riddled Bucs, whose fourth-string running back scored the decisive touchdown. The Dolphins have sunk to 25th in the league in run defence. Tannehill played well but misfired on a long pass to an open Mike Wallace, who was targeted seven times and totalled 15 yards. The $60 million receiver still has only one touchdown this season. First-round pick Dion Jordan was also a non-factor again at linebacker, playing only nine snaps on defence. While the scoreboard in Tampa argued otherwise, Tannehill said the harassment case unified the team. He predicted the Dolphins will yet bounce back. "I feel like weve really come together over this adversity," he said. "This couldve gone two ways: Guys could split up and take sides by dividing the locker room, or we could come together. ... "Life is full of adversity. Not everyone deals with a situation like this, but you have to be able to face it. The old adage: As many times a horse knocks you off, you get back on. Thats the mentality I have, and thats the mentality I think this team has, and weve just got to keep going."
