 :this_thread_is_useless_withouALAMEDA, Calif. Carlos Hyde Browns Jersey . - Derek Carrs demeanour has stayed remarkably the same even as the losses keep piling up for the winless Oakland Raiders.If the pressure and strain of an 0-9 start is wearing on the rookie quarterback, Carr isnt showing it.Hes a mature guy, a mature player, wide receiver James Jones said Wednesday. He understands at a young age that there are going to be times like this, in your career and in your life. You take it and run with it, you dont put your head down. You look at it in the face and you fight it.The Raiders are riding a 15-game losing streak that predates the arrival of Carr, Oaklands second-round draft pick this year. They are the only winless team in the NFL and are trying to avoid becoming just the second in to go 0-16 in a season.Carr played fairly well during the first two months but has regressed the past two weeks. He has thrown four interceptions in the previous two games and has completed only one pass longer than 25 yards in that time.That has raised concerns whether Carr is capable of being the franchise quarterback, though interim coach Tony Sparano has been quick to defend him.Not that he needs it.The 23-year-old Carr has a poise that many veterans lack. He insists his confidence is high and that he isnt feeling the heat from critics or fans.To be honest, if you were to come and just hang out in our locker room or hang out in our meetings, guys are driven to get better, Carr said. When the effort goes down, thats bad. The energy level is honestly like were 9-0. Guys are running around still striving to do what they can to make this thing right.Hopefully it will be sooner than later, but its going to happen one of these days.With little support from the running game to keep defences honest, the Raiders have been unsuccessful in trying to stretch the field with the passing game.Carr completed only 58.5 per cent of his throws and was picked off twice against the Seattle Seahawks. He followed that with two more interceptions last week against the Denver Broncos.He came back to throw a late touchdown in the loss to Denver and was thankful Sparano left him in the game despite the lopsided score.I should be out there no matter what, good, bad or ugly, Carr said. And for a long time it was ugly. For me it was important to continue to finish. I wanted to go out there and compete one last time and try to correct the things wed been trying to correct all game. We got to do that.Carr had his best game of the season in Week 6 when he passed for 282 yards and four touchdowns in a 31-28 loss to San Diego.The Raiders play the Chargers again this Sunday in what Carr says is his first time facing the same team twice in one season.One thing for me is you know their personnel, Carr said. For me as a rookie, thats always something thats unknown. You can see something on film, but until youre really out there playing against somebody and you see him for the first time, you dont really know. So thats something thats really helpful.NOTES: Right tackle Menelik Watson was held out of practice but did conditioning work on the side. Watson sustained a concussion in the loss to Denver. Second-year player Matt McCants took reps with the first-team offence in Watsons absence. ... Defensive end Justin Tuck woke up with a sore neck and didnt practice, though Sparano didnt think it was serious. ... Cornerbacks DJ Hayden (groin) and Carlos Rogers (knee) were also held out. ... Spencer Hadley, a rookie linebacker on the practice squad, took reps at fullback. Jamize Olawale (shoulder/hamstring) rested. E.J. Gaines Jersey . "I met her, I think, a week ago. We went to a Norwood hockey store and picked her out some gear. T. J. Carrie Browns Jersey . Englands only win in the four most recent trips north had been tight, and Scotland was expected after losing 28-6 to Ireland six days ago to show some venom against its archrival. http://www.authenticbrownsnflfansmall.com/c-79-browns-howard-wilson-jersey.aspx . -- Kael Mouillierat scored three times and set up one more as the St.NEW YORK -- Baseball players and management hope to reach a new drug agreement this week that would increase initial penalties for muscle-building steroids and allow a decrease of suspensions for some positive tests caused by unintentional use, people familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. For future suspensions, the deal also would eliminate the loophole allowing Alex Rodriguez to earn almost $3 million during his season-long ban, the people said. They spoke on condition of anonymity in recent days because talks are ongoing. The sides hope to reach an agreement by Sunday, when the Los Angeles Dodgers open the U.S. portion of the major league schedule at the San Diego Padres. While the lengths have not been finalized, a person involved with the talks said Wednesday the most likely penalties would be about 80 games for an initial testing violation and a season-long ban for a second. "It will be a significant deterrent because players will know theyre not going to just easily walk back into a lineup," Travis Tygart, chief executive officer of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, said in a telephone interview. "It probably is the best policy in professional sports." For use of a limited group of substances, the sides were discussing giving the arbitration panel that hears appeals grievances the authority to reduce suspensions by as much as 50 per cent if the player proves the positive test was caused by unintentional use, the person said. "What were all here for it to rid sports of the intentional cheats, those who are intending to defraud both the fans and their fellow teammates, the integrity of competition," Tygart said. "You want to have provisions in place that allow for whether theres an inadvertent or a truly non-intentional situation which may arise." Since the 2006 season, the Major League Baseballs drug agreement has called for a 50-game suspension for a first positive steroids test, a 100-game ban for a second and a lifetime penalty for a third. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig called for tougher penalties last March, and then-union head Michael Weiner said players would consider them for 2014. Weiner died in November and was succeeded by former All-Star Tony Clark, who has led the negotiations. Major League Baseballs investigation of the Biogenesis of Amerrica anti-aging clinic led to 14 suspensions last summer, including a 65-game penalty for former NL MVP Ryan Braun of Milwaukee and a 211-game ban for Rodriguez, which was reduced to 162 games in January by an arbitrator. Zane Gonzalez Jersey. The section covering violations not related to positive tests, which was used by Selig in the Biogenesis case, will be clarified but still will allow discipline for "just cause." Many players have advocated stiffer penalties as a deterrent. Arizona pitcher Brad Ziegler spoke out after Jhonny Peralta, who served a 50-game suspension, agreed in November to a $53 million, four-year contract with St. Louis. "We thought 50 games would be a deterrent. Obviously its not. So we are working on it again," he tweeted then. "It pays to cheat... Thanks, owners, for encouraging PED use." Some players said suspensions should lead to larger monetary losses. San Diego Padres outfielder Will Venable maintained last summer "somehow having to forfeit or void your contract that youre under is something that needs to be the main focus of the penalties." But for the majority of players, that would go too far. "Id venture to guess that even though there are concerns on a number of levels, that we will never end up in a world where player contracts are voided as a result," Clark told the AP during a January interview. Addressing positives caused by inadvertent use was a factor in the talks. Philadelphia infielder Freddy Galvis was suspended for 50 games in June 2012 for a Clostebol Metabolite, which he later claimed was contained in a foot cream he used. Reliever Guillermo Mota, then with San Francisco, was suspended for 100 games in May 2012 after taking a cough syrup with Clenbuterol. The new deal also will state that a player receives none of his salary during a season-long suspension. The current deal said a player loses as many days pay as games he is suspended. Since players are paid over a 183-day season this year, arbitrator Fredric Horowitz ruled Rodriguez was entitled to 21-183rds of his $25 million salary, or $2,868,852. "Thats fantastic," Tygart said. "You hit them in the pocketbook, and thats really where the cheaters are most deterred from attempting to steal money from the other players."
