Taijul Islam in touch with international cricket? Yes. A-team tours. If I have failed to highlight that [lack of A

CINCINNATI -- The Bengals are right up there among the NFLs elite when it comes to reaching the playoffs. Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Scontate . Once there, theyre as bad as anybody in league history.Its a familiar story, one that fans around town know by heart -- and by heartbreak. They had one of the worst meltdowns in postseason history last January while losing to the rival Steelers. And how did they respond? By keeping the team intact, giving the coach a contract extension, and lining up to do it all over again.Yep. Its become the Bengals way. Great for 16 weeks, stupefyingly bad for one week.Theres a little bit of unfinished business that we want to get past, running back Giovani Bernard said.The Bengals have reached the playoffs a club-record five consecutive seasons. Only New England and Green Bay have longer active streaks, having made the playoffs each of the last seven years. Denver also has made it five years in a row.Weve had a solid team over the last five years, owner Mike Brown said. Weve gone to the playoffs each of those years. Three other teams have done that besides us. Were in good company.The company parts as soon as the stakes get high. New England, Green Bay and Denver have won Super Bowls during those impressive streaks of reaching the postseason, with the Broncos getting their title last season. The Bengals have lost in the first round each time, setting an NFL record for futility.Overall, they havent won a playoff game since the 1990 season, the sixth-longest streak of postseason futility in league history.How did they respond to their last-minute meltdown and 18-16 loss to the Steelers in the playoffs last January? They kept the team together and gave coach Marvin Lewis -- an NFL-record 0-7 in the playoffs -- an extra year on his contract.Here are some things to watch as the Bengals give it yet another try:STEADY ANDY: Andy Dalton had his breakout season, leading the AFC in passer rating before he broke his right thumb during a loss to Pittsburgh on Dec. 13. The thumb fully healed and he looked sharp in training camp and limited preseason appearances. If he can have a fitting follow-up to last season -- 25 touchdowns, seven interceptions, a 106.3 passer rating -- the Bengals will be in good shape to get another playoff berth.COORDINATOR CHANGE: Part of Daltons success can be attributed to Hue Jacksons creativity. The former offensive coordinator went to Cleveland as the Browns latest head coach after the season, and Ken Zampese was elevated from quarterbacks coach to coordinator. Itll be interesting to see how he tailors the offense to his preferences.The offense as a whole, and schematically, is going to take on what he likes, Dalton said. We have a lot of guys that have been here a while and understand this offense. He understands the players he has. There are some things similar and some things well do different.NEW RECEIVERS: The biggest loss in the offseason came in the receiving group. A.J. Green is back, but Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu -- the No. 2 and No. 3 receivers, respectively -- left as free agents. Cincinnati signed Brandon LaFell as a free agent, but he was limited for much of the preseason by a hand injury. Second-round pick Tyler Boyd is set to move into a starting role, but hell have some growing pains. And tight end Tyler Eifert -- Daltons favorite target near the goal line -- missed all of camp after surgery on his left ankle. Look for them to lean more heavily on their running back tandem of Jeremy Hill and Bernard in the early going.MISSING BURFICT: Linebacker Vontaze Burficts hit to Antonio Browns head on an incomplete pass moved the Steelers into range for their winning field goal in the playoff game and drew a three-game suspension from the NFL. The Bengals allowed the second-fewest points in the NFL last season, but will start this one without their emotional and unpredictable playmaker.OPENING STRETCH: Burficts suspension overlaps a tough opening stretch for Cincinnati. The Bengals open at the Jets, at the Steelers and at home against the Broncos. Following another home game against the Dolphins, theyre at Dallas and at New England. The eighth game of the season is in London -- their first trip abroad -- against the Redskins. They need to get things worked out fast with that passing game.---Online: AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Sean Wotherspoon Air Max 97 . Pert has formerly spent time as an assistant coach with Cardiff City, Coventry City, and Bahrain mens national team. "Martyn is a highly-respected coach with experience at the top levels in England," said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. Donne Nike VaporMax Moc Flyknit Multicolore Nere & Hot Punch AA4155-003 Vendita Online . Howard Ganz, an MLB lawyer, said in a letter to U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos that Rodriguezs claims do not come "remotely close" to what is needed to overturn an arbitration decision in federal court. . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands. A lot of Bangladeshs success in the last two years has been attributed to the hard work put in by head coach Chandika Hathurusingha. After their most notable Test victory, he sat down with ESPNcricinfo at the fortified Radisson hotel to chat about the teatime pep talk on the third day of the Dhaka Test, which changed the body language of the Bangladesh team. He also spoke about Bangladeshs infamous batting collapses, and of how he wants youngsters like Mehedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman and Taskin Ahmed to deal with heightened expectations.How does the morning after a big Test win look for you? The reaction is more than what I expected, and not just in Bangladesh, but from the world over. It is beginning to sink in what a big achievement it is.How Bangladeshi do you feel right now? I am very proud of the players, the board and fans. I think they waited a long time for this, after the Test status. I can see what it means for them as well. I am proud to be part of it.How difficult was it to translate the ODI success into the Test arena, particularly after the gap of 14 months? The challenge wasnt much ability-wise. It was about mentally preparing for Test cricket. We had to believe ourselves that we can compete and trust the game plan. The biggest challenge was not to be afraid of losing, and think about winning. We all believed that if we are not afraid to lose, we can achieve bigger things. All credit to the boys again, to believe in that as a group. If you notice lately, the team is not afraid to try things hoping for a better result.What are the major changes between your first Test series - West Indies 2014 - and this Test series? One day I was watching those matches as they were showing reruns on TV, and I was surprised how much we have changed in every area of the game. Unfortunately I saw Shafiul [Islam] running away from the ball. I dont mean to use him as an example, but this just sums up their change in attitude, and how they are no longer afraid of anything. Their demeanour has changed. Now they prepare and play to win. People have short memories, so if you watch those videos you can see how far they have come.How did the belief come about? Belief comes with results. It is harder at the start but one success brings another success. If someones there to challenge the way you are doing things, you will always get better. If youre happy to stay where you were, you will never achieve things. Your success cant only be quantified by winning, theres a lot of other things.How much hands-on coaching do you have to do in the Bangladesh team? This group is still learning. They have a long way to go. Otherwise we would have had more success. I hope that after this win they will have better memories, if they get into such winning positions in the future, to do it on their own. They can find the ways on their own in the middle. Theres a lot of idea-sharing and making sure we create the environment in which they get challenged.When was the first time the idea of playing on these wickets came up in your planning? Who came up with the plan? It was everyones idea. The players have to believe and come up with the plans as well. They have to change their ways of training and mental ability to handle situations, because the players are under pressure, not us. They also came up with those plans, not only us. Once the players start to believe, and embrace the idea, the job is much easier because they will do it.But is there a way to explain what goes on during a batting collapse? I think it has a lot to do with what goes on between their ears. We dont see it coming. In this series it was a challenge for everyone because of the pitches. Once that comes into your head, you are in a difficult place. All the training and experience you have goes out of the window once you press that panic button.The other challenge is that when you havent won many Tests and you are nearing one [victory], so many ideas come into you. So many people talk to you. We are not bulletproof. It takes a long time, many occasions you face such a situation, and then you come on top. I say, your computer is full of ideas, so you find your own solution rather than listening to someone else. Air Max 97 Uomo Nere. You think that game in Bangalore can now be forgotten? If you try to forget, you lose the sight of what youre trying to achieve. You must not forget that game. The players have to learn from it. If they forget, they are losing sight of what they have in front of them.What goes through your mind when you see Shakib or Mahmudullah playing the kind of shots they played to get out in the first and second Tests? They are human beings. They can make mistakes. The quicker they learn, the better for their careers. How much do they learn actually, especially the senior players? What is the important thing in that situation? If you define that, you can find your own answer.How do you deal with these things when you see a senior player doing such a thing? The best way to deal with this is for them to realise it. I am always open for them to come and ask me. Thats where the learning starts. Not if I start chasing after them and shouting at them.Are you getting what you want from the players? I got a lot of support from the players who are open for ideas. I got lot of support from the board members, which is all you want. You dont need everyone to like you. In that way, youre pleasing people. The more people criticise you, it means you are challenging what is happening. Results on top of that give you a positive sign.Do you realise that you have challenged many things in Bangladesh cricket? I know. My career has been like that. I have never been afraid of standing up for what is right. Whether I lose or not, it is all about not being afraid of trying things.When you see young guys like Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman and Mehedi Hasan, who have started so well in their international careers, what message do you have for them? It is a bigger challenge in the subcontinent because this game is more than just a game. It is a huge burden of expectation on a young man to suddenly come from nowhere to stardom. The best thing you need is good people around you to keep your feet on the ground, and to support you and give you proper advice.I had a chat with Mehedi after the game. I told him the first thing you do is celebrate the success with the team-mates. He is a good kid, so he understood the message I was giving him. I hope they will handle it well.How do you look forward to the big challenge of a number of Tests next year being played abroad? I dont see it that way. Every day is a challenge, so it is regardless of whether we are playing abroad. We need to come up with a plan that we can believe in. I am happy with executing the plan, regardless of the result.Do you think there can be a way to keep Test specialists like Mominul Haque and Taijul Islam in touch with international cricket? Yes. A-team tours. If I have failed to highlight that [lack of A-team tours], I dont think I am doing my job.Everyone is talking about the teatime talk and how Tamim Iqbal was taking charge of the field after the tea break. The best thing I can tell you is that the big players stood up. I was disappointed and upset that we were nearly wasting another opportunity we had in our hands. I had a chat with the boys. I challenged them to stand up. I told them that this opportunity will never come again. I am glad that a few people stood up and decided to do something different.What does Hathurusingha do when he gets angry? I think I have kicked only two things in the two and a half years (laughs). I am just joking. I cant get angry as a head coach. I have to be the filter between the players and the ideas. At the same time we have to get the message across.Are you going through the best phase of your coaching career? I always expect to do better in the future. I am enjoying the job.What makes you more proud - the result or their overall improvement? The improvement. How they take ownership of their success and failure makes me more proud. Cheap NFL Hoodies Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys NFL ChinaWholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
