RENTON, Wash. Nike Roshe Two . -- The aftermath of the first NFL tie since 2014 became a study in the delicate psyche of kickers, and how they are handled by their coaches.Last Sundays 6-6 tie between Seattle and Arizona was remarkable from many aspects. One of the lasting memories were the reactions from Arizona coach Bruce Arians and Seattle coach Pete Carroll to a pair of short missed field goals in overtime that could have won the game for either team.Arizonas Chandler Catanzaro had a 24-yard field goal clang off the left upright, and minutes later Seattles Steve Hauschka pulled a 28-yard attempt wide left . Then came the reactions, and a study in how two coaches seeking the same goal took differing tones.Arians was gruff, Carroll was supportive.Arians on Catanzaro: Make it. This is professional, this aint high school, baby. You get paid to make it.Carroll on Hauschka: He made his kicks to give us a chance, and unfortunately he didnt make the last one. Hes been making kicks for years around here ... but hes gonna hit a lot of winners as we go down the road here. I love him and hes our guy.Two divergent reactions, all with the same goal of getting their kickers to be better.It means a lot to me, Hauschka said this week. Coach is incredible. He is the reason that this team is so good and why this whole atmosphere up here in Seattle is so positive. And it all starts with him. I couldnt ask for a better head coach.With such a unique role on the team, and such a specific skill in stark contrast to the rest of the roster, kickers really only have their peers who can relate to their highly visible and deeply scrutinized mistakes. How coaches handle those mistakes can be all over the spectrum.Back in 2009, then Seattle coach Jim Mora unloaded on kicker Olindo Mare immediately after he missed 34- and 43-yard field goals in a 29-25 loss to Chicago.Were not going to fight our (tails) off, and have a field goal kicker go out there and miss two field goals and lose a game. Its not going to happen, Mora said.A day later, Mora apologized for his harsh assessment.There was no such recanting from Arians. Catanzaro was already drawing the ire of his head coach before his overtime miss Sunday. A bad snap helped led to Catanzaros missed field goal that would have beaten New England in the season opener.And while Arians said he still fully supports Catanzaro, he expressed it in an acerbic way.The kicker just needs to kick it through the two poles and wed be 5-2, he said.Minnesotas Blair Walsh didnt watch the game Sunday night, but he sure knew how Catanzaro and Hauschka were feeling afterward. Walsh missed a 27-yard field goal last January that kept the Vikings from beating the Seahawks in the first round of the playoffs.Those are two great kickers, and theyll be fine, Walsh said. I know both of those guys will have great years, and they shouldnt worry.The fraternity of kickers is tight. Catanzaro had a similar reaction after seeing Hauschka miss.I never pull for another kicker to miss, Catanzaro said. It was tough. My reaction the other night, I wanted another shot to win it for the team because they deserved for me to put that through. But I hated to see Hauschka go out there and miss it. Hes a great kicker and hell come back from it.Being a kicker puts them in a glaring spotlight. Walsh knows that all too well after last seasons miss.From the suburban first-graders who wrote him sympathy cards the day after the game to the teammates who consoled him in the locker room, Walsh has experienced more support than backlash -- despite the predictable social media trolling from upset fans. He has some inspirational quotes hanging in his cubicle at the teams practice facility, motivation passed on by one of his high school teachers.Walsh, though, has been unable to put the gaffe out of the public discussion. He missed two field goals and an extra point in the season opener, shanked another extra point two weeks later, and missed another field goal the game after that. The Vikings won all of those games comfortably, but while they havent brought in any free agents for competition, theyve clearly lost some patience.We need to make those, or its going to bite us in the rear end, coach Mike Zimmer said after Walshs last miss on Oct. 3.Zimmers public stance on supporting Walsh has fallen somewhere between the reactions of Carroll and Arians, though tilting more toward Arians lately.Were going to need Blair down the stretch and need him to play well for us, special teams coordinator Mike Priefer said, and hopefully thats what hell do.---AP Pro Football Writer Dave Campbell and AP freelance writer Jose Romero contributed to this report.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: ;Air Max Aanbieding .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. Puma Rihanna Fenty . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. . There was no hesitation from the 40th-ranked Pospisil, from Vernon, B.C., who admitted that he cut back on his training sessions over the last few days to conserve energy as the long ATP season finishes next week at the Paris Masters. American guard Rotnei Clarke shrugged off a surprise benching to spark the Illawarra Hawks to Sundays crushing 109-78 victory over the New Zealand Breakers at WIN Entertainment Centre.The NBLs MVP in 2014, Clarke had one of his best games of the season, scoring a game-high 22 points off the bench in his teams fifth win.Illawarra had six players in double figures as they avenged Friday nights 15-point loss to the Breakers in Auckland.The Hawks overcame a nervous start and the loss of star import Marvelle Harris (ankle) after four minutes to be up 26-20 at quarter-time, with live-wire guard Mitch Norton scoring eight points.Clarke had four points before pouring in 11 in the second quarter, as Illawarra surged to a 56-44 halftime lead.The Hawks showed no signs of slowing down in the second half, sharing the workload at both ends of the court and stretching the margin to 19 at three-quarter time.Illawarra were never threatened down the stretch and boosted their win-loss record to 5-6.The Breakers are onn the road against the Cairns Taipans next Sunday, while Illawarra have a Sunday away game against injury-plagued titleholders Perth. Puma Rihanna Creepers Kopen. .The Hawks came out and played with a lot of courage and heart and unfortunately we didnt match that, Breakers coach Paul Henare said.This has been our third double header in three weeks and now we get a couple of days to regroup and prepare for next Sundays game in Cairns.Breakers swingman Kirk Penney conceded it was a good wake-up call for the Breakers.That was a good kick in the butt for us, he said.For Hawks coach Rob Beveridge, it was solid defence that really drove his side, particularly after the loss of Harris.Im hoping that game and that performance will be a turning point for us in our season, he said.Marvelle will get treatment from our medical staff this week and I expect hell be a good chance of playing next Sunday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
