CANTON, Ohio—The Saints havent seemed all that far removed from suspended
coach Sean Payton. Deion Branch Womens Jersey . When they walked
into their indoor practice facility last month, they saw a large mural of the
coach glaring at them with the message “Do your job”—his parting words before
starting a one-season penalty for the teams bounty scandal. Thats not all.
Payton got the NFLs permission to come to Canton for the induction of former
Saints tackle Willie Roaf into the Hall of Fame on Saturday, another reminder
that hes still around in a sense. The first significant change comes Sunday
night. The Saints (No. 9 in the AP Pro32) will play without him for the first
time in the Hall of Fame game against the Arizona Cardinals (No. 23). Theyll get
their orders from assistant coach Joe Vitt, who is running the team for now. New
Orleans gets to start adjusting to its new normal. Payton and linebacker
Jonathan Vilma are gone for the season. “Just to get back to playing football
after whats gone on, I think its a sanctuary for us,” linebacker Scott Shanle
said. A sanctuary from an awful off-season. In addition to the penalties for
running a program that paid players to hurt opponents, quarterback Drew Brees
skipped workouts and minicamp because he was unhappy about getting the teams
franchise tag. He eventually got a five-year, $100 million deal, and the Saints
started trying to get past their many problems. A team that won 13 games last
season returns most of its offence intact, its best hope of reaching the
playoffs for the fourth straight season, one that ends with the Super Bowl in
New Orleans. Theres no sense of doom in the Superdome—not yet, anyway. “That
may be the way that people like to frame it,” said Brees, who is expected to
play only a series or two on Sunday. “But that is not the way that we look at
it. You can say that it just adds a little extra motivation. It just puts
another chip on our shoulder, but we already had a chip on our shoulder. “It
seems to be the hot topic for us, but it is just business as usual. You deal
with it. Whatever comes your way, you deal with it.” The Saints will get their
look at how their new defence performs. They fired co-ordinator Gregg Williams
before his leading role in the bounty program was uncovered, replacing him with
Steve Spagnuolo. New Orleans is expected to blitz less and play more zone
coverage in the new scheme. Mostly, its a chance to get a feel for how things
will be without Payton calling the shots. The players missed him a little when a
9-foot-tall statue of Steve Gleasons 2006 punt block was unveiled outside the
Superdome last month. “Its tough when we do things like this,” Shanle said. “The
first big thing was the unveiling of the statue for Steve Gleason. Its something
that popped into my mind that it was a shame that coach Payton couldnt be there.
“But Im sure coach Payton read about it somewhere. We just kind of have to deal
with the hand weve been dealt.” For the Cardinals, its the start of a long
journey that will help determine their quarterback. They finished 8-8 last
season after a slow start. Coach Ken Whisenhunt is letting Kevin Kolb and
John Skelton compete for the starting quarterback job during camp. The Hall of
Fame game provides one extra chance to make an impression. “Were trying to make
our mark every single day,” said Kolb, who will get the opening series on
Sunday. “Every single practice counts. Obviously the games are a little bit more
important, but if you start pressing, getting yourself in those kind of modes, I
think we know what happens there.” After the Hall of Fame game, the Cardinals
will fly to Kansas City and practice there for the next preseason game against
the Chiefs. They packed well. “Were going to be all over the place,” Whisenhunt
said. “Were going into Canton and were staying outside of Cleveland, staying
there for a day then going to Missouri Western for training camp and then down
into Kansas City.” Both teams will get to see the Hall of Fame before playing in
a game that has special meaning for the town. The NFLs lockout prompted the
league to call off the game last year, costing the hall and the northern Ohio
city. Theres more labour trouble as the game resumes, however. The league has
locked out the officials as part of a labour dispute and will use replacements
for the game on Sunday night. Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Saturday that
the league and the officials are still talking. “We had some discussions earlier
this week,” he said. “I dont think anythings scheduled again. Wed like to get
there. We have great respect for our officials, but we have to be prepared to
play the season. “So weve been working with the replacement officials for a
couple of months. Theyre in training camps. Theyll be prepared to go if we need
to do it.” Sebastian Vollmer Jersey . When Anthony Gose
lifted a fly to right-centre with a man on second in the 10th inning, Jackson
realized right away he would need a little extra effort to catch this one. Daniel Fells Womens Jersey . 3 quarterback

Hall-of-Fame tight end is in the midst of his best season in Atlanta, catching
79 passes for 867 yards and seven touchdowns heading into Sundays regular season
finale against Tampa Bay. SAN DIEGO —Felix Hernandez flashed his Cy Young
form, and that made all the difference for the Seattle Mariners. After a season
marked by inconsistency, Hernandez—the 2010 winner of the AL Cy Young Award
—turned in another outstanding start with his arm and his bat. Hernandez
pitched seven impressive innings and hit a two-run double to lead the Mariners
to a 5-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night. Hernandez (5-5)
limited the Padres to one run and six hits. The right-hander struck out 10 and
walked one. His only blemish was a balk that brought home San Diegos only run in
the first inning. “Felix stepped up,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. “We
needed him to. He is our guy.” Hernandezs two-out, two-run double in the second
capped a three-run inning in which all the runs were unearned due to second
baseman Logan Forsythes error. “I was trying to swing at the first pitch since I
thought it would be a fastball,” Hernandez said. In his previous outing Sunday,
Hernandez surrendered one run in seven innings of a 2-1 win over San Francisco.
Hernandez had an ERA of 6.37 in six starts before then. “I feel I have to be
more consistent,” he said. “I know I am pitching good.” Michael Saunders hit a
solo homer for Seattle, which has belted eight home runs and scored 32 runs in
the first five games of its road trip. The Padres, who had 11 hits in Friday
nights 9-5 win, were held in check by Hernandez, who won for the first time
since May 21 against Texas. “He had great command of all his pitches,” San
Diegos Mark Kotsay said. “He had a real good feel for his split-finger, which
makes his fastball that much more effective. His velocity was not as high as
normal. “But with an 88 mile per hour split, being able to throw it in the
hitting zone, having it disappear, its a tough test for hitters.” Seattles
pitching staff had surrendered 39 runs through the first four games of the trip
before Hernandez displayed his award-winning ability. “When he was down (in the
strike zone), he was working good,” Wedge said. “Youre seeing more life on his
fastball. When he doees that and on the plate and down, hes as good as it gets.
Dane Fletcher Jersey. ” Hernandez ran into
trouble in the first inning when he gave up a one-out single to Cameron Maybin,
who went to third on Chase Headleys double. Hernandez was then called for a balk
on a pickoff throw to first base, allowing Maybin to score. Hernandez then shut
down the Padres. He got an inning-ending double play with runners at first and
third in the fourth. “We had our chances. Hit the ball on the nose. It just
didnt happen for us,” Padres manager Bud Black said. In the seventh, with
runners on first and third, pinch-hitter Kotsay hit a hard liner to second
baseman Dustin Ackley, who doubled the runner off second to end the inning. “Ive
been more consistent throwing strikes with the fastball,” Hernandez said. “The
fastball was good, the breaking ball is better.” Jason Marquis (1-3) allowed
five runs—two earned—and six hits in seven innings. Marquis was coming off
a career-high tying 10 strikeout performance. Saunders got the Mariners
second-inning rally going with a one-out single. After a walk to Justin Smoak,
Ackley hit a grounder to Forsythe, but his throw to shortstop Everth Cabrera
bounced in the dirt. Brendan Ryan then grounded out to score one run before
Hernandez, who hadnt batted this season, hit the first pitch down the
right-field line to break a 1-1 tie. Hernandez came into the game with a career
batting average of .125 (3 for 24), although one of his hits was a grand slam,
which came exactly four years earlier. Notes: Hernandez has struck out at least
10 batters 18 times, twice this season. ... This was the second straight game
that an error by Forsythe led to unearned runs. On Friday, he mishandled
Ichiro Suzukis groundball in the first inning before Franklin Gutierrez homered.
... San Diego had its four-game winning streak against the Mariners this season
snapped. ... Seattle has hit 51 homers in 42 road games, second to the New York
Yankees. ... Mariners RHP Hector Noesi (2-8, 5.69) will face Padres right-hander
Edinson Volquez (3-7, 4.11) in the finale of the three-game series on Sunday. ’
