EAST RUTHERFORD, N. http:///...0-nere-e-grigie.html .J. -- Odell Beckham Jr.s slamming of his helmet against the kicking net, the prancing up and down the sideline, the ranting and raving at nobody in particular -- its all a bit much for New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo.McAdoo said he wants to see his Pro Bowl wide receiver become less of a distraction so the teams efforts and energy can be singularly concentrated on winning football games.McAdoo twice had conversations on the sideline with Beckham during Sundays 29-27 loss to the Washington Redskins at MetLife Stadium. Beckham was matched against rival cornerback Josh Norman most of the afternoon in their first meeting since last years ugly confrontation.[Beckham] needs to control his emotions better and become less of a distraction to himself and to his teammates, McAdoo said Monday on a conference call with reporters. Its our job to help him with that process and maturing.Beckham has been fined five times in less than three seasons, and he received a suspension for his actions last year against Norman. McAdoo said its on him, his coaches and Beckhams teammates to help focus Beckhams emotions in the proper direction.It takes a village, McAdoo said. It takes time.Beckham had 7 catches on 11 targets for 121 yards on Sunday. He almost appeared to be in tears after the contest.Beckham is an admittedly emotional player. He recently compared himself to NBA All-Star Russell Westbrook. He said his intensity is part of what makes him one of the NFLs top wide receivers.Have you ever watched Russell Westbrook play basketball? He plays with a lot of emotion or passion, whatever you want to call it, Beckham said last week. Its whats best for some players and whats not best for some players. You use it and just be smart. Play smart. Its football at the end of the day.It can become a distraction. McAdoo and quarterback Eli Manning each spent part of this past Sunday tending to Beckham on the sideline. That time could have perhaps been better utilized looking at pictures, discussing past and future plays or anything game-related aside from cooling down their top offensive weapon.Beckham stormed off the field Sunday after a fourth-quarter interception and slammed his helmet against the kicking net. In a karmic twist, it snapped back and slammed into the side of his face. Beckham had a scratch on his face after the game. He said he didnt remember how it happened.?Beckham was also seen yelling and stomping along the sideline throughout the contest.McAdoo said hes dealt with similar emotional players in the past. The teams hes been a part of have been able to corral those emotions.The same way. Communication. Having a variety of different people, coaches, staff members to communicate with, McAdoo said. Just help him direct his focus.Beckham didnt see a problem with his emotions on Sunday. He didnt think they were out of character.Same as they always are, he said. Same as they always are. http:///...-bianche-e-nere.html . Neymar curled home a free kick from just outside the area to put the 2014 World Cup host ahead in the 44th minute. Three minutes after the break, a simple through pass from Paulinho freed Oscar and the Chelsea star rounded goalkeeper Jung Sung-ryong to extend Brazils lead. Vendita Scarpe Nike Air Max 90 http:///...-bianche-e-nere.html . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. TAMPA, Fla. -- The new-look Baltimore Ravens were tough, physical and opportunistic, all good signs for a team seeking another run to the Super Bowl. "Were a very different team than we were, so we were really anxious to get on the field and just see who we are, because we really dont know in a lot of ways," coach John Harbaugh said after Thursday nights 44-16 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "We suspect we have a chance to be a good team, but weve got a long way to go as far as being on the same page in a lot of ways, so its a good thing weve got preseason, obviously." Joe Flacco was sharp in his preseason debut, second-year pro Bernard Pierce scored on a 20-yard run, and a revamped defence forced four turnovers before an announced crowd of 47,599 at Raymond James Stadium. Backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor threw a pair of TD passes, including a 21-yarder to third-stringer LaQuan Williams, who also recovered a blocked punt in the end zone. "Its good to see him step up and make plays," Harbaugh said of Williams. "Heres a guy that just brings his lunch pail every single week, puts on his blue collar work shirt and goes to work. To see him make those plays, hes got tremendous talent." Josh Freeman and the rest of Tampa Bays starters played sparingly, so most of Baltimores scoring came against backups and newcomers to a defence that ranked last in the NFL against the pass last season. Flacco signed a $120.1 million contract after leading the Ravens to their second Super Bowl title. He worked two series, completing seven of nine passes for 57 yards and one interception. Second-year Bucs coach Greg Schiano liked what he saw from his overhauled secondary early in the game. "I thought we played competitively on defence ... ones against ones," Schiano said. Lavonte David sacked Flacco for a 10-yard loss and Danny Gorrer picked off a sideline throw intended for Jacoby Jones two plays later to stop Baltimores first possession. "It felt pretty good, and not just in terms of finally being back out here," Flacco said. "I felt like we operated OK for being this early and that the offensive line played pretty well. There are a couple of things we need to clean up -- like on the interception -- because those are little things that we need to ... get better at, so we can stay on the field and score points." Freemans first seriees ended with the fifth-year pro, whos entering the final year of his contract as the third quarterback drafted in 2009, being sacked by Chris Canty. http:///...90-nere-e-rosse.html. . He left the game on a better note, directing an 11-play, 56-yard drive that produced Derek Dimkes 29-yard field goal. "It felt good to get back out there. Playing a team like the Ravens, theyre going to blitz, theyre going to play man, theyre going to mix it up," Freeman said. "We saw quite a bit during the short time (Baltimores starters) were in." Freeman completed four of seven passes for 34 yards in just under a quarter. Rookie Mike Glennon took over on Tampa Bays third possession, teamed with tight end Tom Crabtree on a 61-yard catch-and-run on his first play, and led two first-half scoring drives. The third-round draft pick threw a third-quarter interception, but his mistake was hardly the only costly blunder for the Bucs. Chris Oswusu muffed a punt return to set up Pierces touchdown, and Baltimore added a TD just before the half when Brynden Trawick blocked Chas Henrys punt in the end zone and Williams recovered. Despite only playing 13 snaps, Freeman felt he accomplished what he set out to in a preseason opener -- mainly working off the rust of a long off-season. "The reason for the preseason is tuning up," the Tampa Bay quarterback said. "We talked about coming out and playing physical and not turning the ball over as an offence. ... I thought it was an effective day to get out and play against somebody, since the last 2 1-2 weeks weve been playing against each other." The Bucs played without cornerback Darrelle Revis, the biggest of several key off-season acquisitions since going 7-9 and missing the playoffs for the fifth straight season. The three-time All-Pro is recovering from a knee injury that sidelined him most of last season with the New York Jets; theres a chance he may not play in the preseason. NOTES: Six other projected starters also did not play for Tampa Bay: guards Carl Nicks and Davin Joseph; defensive end Adrian Clayborn; fullback Erik Lorig; tight end Luke Stocker; and kicker Lawrence Tynes, whos been slowed in camp by a toe injury. ... The Ravens played without linebacker Jameel McClain, one of several possibilities to replace Ray Lewis in the middle of a defence that lost Ed Reed, Paul Kruger, Cary Williams and Bernard Pollard to free agency.
