GREEN BAY, Wis. Dennis Rodman Jersey . - Mike McCarthy didnt want to think or talk about his accomplishments or his potential legacy as the Green Bay Packers coach Monday.He wanted to change the subject to Sunday nights game against Chicago.So shortly after the team announced that hed signed a multiyear contract extension, McCarthy lasted all of six questions before he tried steering the discussion in another direction.Can we talk about the Bears now? McCarthy said, referring to the Packers upcoming game Sunday night against their NFC North rivals.But more questions followed about McCarthys place in one of the NFLs most-storied franchises.It made sense considering hes five victories behind Vince Lombardi in Packers history. With a 93-53-1 record including the playoffs, McCarthy ranks third in team history behind Curly Lambeau (212) and Lombardi (98).Im not going to compare myself to Coach Lombardi. Lets be real here, McCarthy said. I understand my place, my opportunity and Im very thankful for the people that came before me.In McCarthys nine seasons as coach, the Packers have made six playoff appearances, won four division titles, appeared in two NFC championship games and won a Super Bowl.The Packers did not release specifics of McCarthys deal.General manager Ted Thompson signed an extension in July that reportedly runs through the 2019 draft.We are very happy to extend our relationship with Mike, Thompson said in a statement. Over the past nine years, hes provided great stability and consistency to the Packers organization and our community as an excellent coach and leader. Hes a good man and we look forward to the future with Mike as our head coach.A Pittsburgh native, the 50-year-old McCarthy was the Packers quarterbacks coach in 1999 before spending five seasons as the New Orleans Saints offensive co-ordinator (2000-04) and one year as the offensive co-ordinator of the San Francisco 49ers (2005) before being hired to replace Mike Sherman as Packers coach in January 2006.McCarthy began his NFL coaching career with the Kansas City Chiefs in 1993.Coming off a bye, the Packers enter their Sunday night game against the Bears at Lambeau Field with a 5-3 record following a 1-2 start. Only the Packers and the New England Patriots have made the post-season each of the past five seasons.The Packers have won three straight NFC North titles under McCarthy and won at least 10 games in five of his nine seasons.McCarthy, who had previously signed extensions after the 2007 and 2010 seasons, said he was happy with the new deal but admitted that the timing — even though it occurred during the teams bye week — was slightly awkward for him because it happened during the season.This is a great place. Im very blessed, very fortunate to have the opportunity to coach here, McCarthy said. This is something that the organization wanted. I was thrilled about the opportunity to continue, (and) all Im really thinking about is moving forward.Frankly, Im a little uncomfortable talking about it this time of the year. This is something we havent done in-season in the past. Were thrilled as a family to be here, and were focused on the Bears.NOTES: McCarthy said quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who left the teams Oct. 26 loss at New Orleans with a hamstring injury, did everything during the teams modified Monday practice and looked good. ... Right guard T.J. Lang (ankle) did injury rehabilitation work during practice, McCarthy said. Cornerback Sam Shields (knee) looked good and did everything at practice while safety Morgan Burnett (calf) pretty much did everything, McCarthy said. ... The Packers released often-injured 2011 first-round pick Derek Sherrod Monday to make room on the 53-man roster for centre JC Tretter, who was activated from the injured reserve/designated for return list. Sherrod, who broke his leg in a December 2011 game that required emergency surgery and sidelined him for most of the next two seasons, had been the teams No. 3 offensive tackle behind starters David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga. Sherrod played 20 games with one start — earlier this season in place of an injured Bulaga — in four seasons.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Joffrey Lauvergne Jersey .L. - Defending womens champion Alberta improved to 3-0 at the Canadian junior curling championships with a 10-3 win over Ontario in Sundays afternoon draw.

Calvert and his team of Kyle Kurz, Lucas Van Den Bosch, Brendan Wilson, alternate Matt Dunstone and coach Tom Clasper earned their spot in the playoffs by finishing in third place in the round robin with a 6-3 record. "Were a little disappointed right now," said Calvert immediately after the game. "We played a lot better in the second half after getting off to a sluggish start. We didnt really make the other team make too difficult shots." Both teams stuck to defence, and after eight ends the score was tied 3-3. Switzerland scored two in the ninth, but Calvert was able to force the extra end with a perfect draw for two on his last shot of the 10th. In the extra end, Switzerland missed a couple of tick shots, allowing Canada to draw around and lie one. With his last, Calvert drew the front off the four-foot to lie two, and Schwaller elected to try the double take-out. Danny Green Jersey. . His shooter just hung on for the score of one and a ticket to the semifinal. "It was a really, really tough game," said Swiss skip Schwaller. "It was so close in the end, maybe just a few centimetres in it, just crazy. We played really defensively, that was the key to winning. Canadian curling always involves a lot of stones and guards - we wanted to play defensively and not play their game." Tuesday afternoon, Schwaller will play Norways Eirik Mjoeen, who lost to Scotlands Kyle Smith in the Page 1-2 playoff game. Smith goes directly to Wednesdays final, where he will try to defend his 2013 world junior championship title. Canada will face the loser of the semifinal between Norway and Switzerland in the bronze medal game on Wednesday at 7am et/4am pt, and Calvert says the Canadians will be ready. "I think well get rested and fired up to play the bronze medal game," he said.
