Mike Singletary hopes to coach again in the NFL someday. He has plenty on his plate right now http://www.patriotsauthorizedshop.com/authentic-adrian-clayborn-jersey , though.
Singletary was at minicamp with the Detroit Lions on Thursday. He said he doesn’t know Lions coach Matt Patricia that well, but he wanted to be there to check out the video screens Detroit is using at practice.
Singletary was hired earlier this year to coach high school football at Trinity Christian Academy in Texas. He also has been hired as coach of the Memphis franchise in the Alliance of American Football, which will start playing in February.
Singletary has coached for three NFL teams, including a stint as San Francisco’s head coach. The 49ers went 18-22 under him from 2008-10. Singletary was asked if he thought he could get another opportunity like that.
”I hope so. But for me, I’m going to work where I’m planning,” he said. ”Very excited to be where I am, and if that happens, great. If not, then I’m going to keep working where I’m at.”
Singletary says he learned some lessons from his time coaching in the NFL.
”It’s a long list of things. I think more so than anything else is how much I needed to do – how much work I needed to do as a coach and being able to coach my coaches and have them help my players. … Just getting more information http://www.broncosauthorizedshops.com/authentic-daesean-hamilton-jersey , just getting more grounding as a head coach.”
A star linebacker with the Chicago Bears, Singletary was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1998. He clearly still enjoys being involved in the sport.
”It’s such a great game, such a great game when you have the right people involved, when you have the right coaches and you’ve got good kids,” Singletary said. ”I think all kids are good kids. … You’ve got to know which ones you’ve got to manage, and the ones that help the others. But it’s just such a great game, and so many life lessons, so very important game to me, in America.”
As for the video screens at practice http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-derwin-james-jersey , Patricia explained the purpose this week.
”You may have missed something on the field. You kind of look at it and see what happens. You see what went wrong on the play and can get that instant kind of correction to the player right away,” Patricia said. ”A lot of the times the players are trying to figure it out for themselves. So, they’ll see something and, `Hey, what happened right there?’ And they can look at it and reference it from that standpoint.”
LAS VEGAS — The San Jose Sharks made it to the Stanley Cup Finals just two years ago, losing in six games to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
So you’d think Peter DeBoer’s squad might be a little ticked off to be cast in the role of the underdog against the expansion Vegas Golden Knights when they meet in the second round of the Western Conference playoffs starting Thursday night at T-Mobile Arena.
Instead, the Sharks seem to welcome the fact that the Golden Knights, who cruised to the Pacific Division title with 109 points, are solid betting favorites to move on to the Western Conference finals.
“I know we’re going to be heavy John Franklin-Myers Color Rush Jersey , heavy underdogs,” DeBoer said with a big smile after his team swept the Anaheim Ducks in four games in the first round. “Hopefully you write that, and we go from there.”
Vegas, which swept the Los Angeles Kings in the first round, won the season series with the Sharks (3-0-1), although two of the games were decided in overtime and another by just one goal.
“If you look at years past I think it’s nice for us to be an underdog,” San Jose defenseman Brenden Dillon told nhl.com. “They’ve been one of the best teams from Day 1 of the season, a team we have a lot of respect for and a team with a high-end offense. They’re feeling good about their game, and we’re going have to be at our best.”
Vegas is 31-10-2 at home but will be facing a veteran San Jose squad that is 22-14-7 on the road Tyquan Lewis Color Rush Jersey , outscoring Anaheim 6-2 in two wins at the Honda Center.
Both teams have playoff-proven goaltenders who come in hot. San Jose’s Martin Jones was 4-0 with a 1.00 goals-against average, a shutout and a glossy .970 save percentage in the sweep of the Ducks. Marc-Andre Fleury of the Golden Knights, a key member on three Stanley Cup-winning teams in Pittsburgh, was even more impressive against the Kings, compiling a 0.65 GAA and .977 save percentage to go with two shutouts.
A big key in Thursday night’s opener could be which team can shake off the rust quicker. Vegas will be playing its first game in nine days since polishing off the Kings 1-0 behind 31 saves by Fleury on April 17 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. San Jose will be taking the ice for the first time in eight days after edging visiting Anaheim 2-1 behind a 30-save performance by Jones on April 18 at SAP Center.
“I think the plus (of the long break) would probably be the rest, healing your body from the bumps and bruises a little bit,” Fleury said. “But it’s so long, though. We had great momentum going. Now we have to wait and see.”
“They’re in the same boat so that’s the good thing,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “I’m glad we’re not playing a team that just finished up a series and had two or three days off. We had an extra day more than them. … It’s going to be tough http://www.bengalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-malik-jefferson-jersey , but the players are going to be ready, they’re fired up. It’s a playoff game, not a regular-season game.”
