Carlton will be desperate to give favourite son Andrew Walker the farewell he deserves in Sundays AFL clash at the MCG. Terence Garvin Jersey .Walker announced earlier this week he would retire after tackling St Kilda, with a debilitating knee injury having taken its toll.The 30-year-old will be best remembered by AFL fans for his spectacular mark in 2011.But at Princes Park it is his work ethic and professionalism that coaches will miss most.John Barker, an assistant coach at the Blues for much of Walkers career, says the forward routinely set the standard at pre-season training.I remember hed come back and just win time trial after time trial, after time trial, Barker said.He has a mindset where the off-season is not a time to let the hair down for two months.Its a time to let the body repair, prepare yourself for another solid pre-season .. that has an impact on young players.I know the boys will be really proud if they can get the job done for him and he deserves that sort of performance from us.Barker paid tribute to the fact Walker will finish with 202 games despite a series of setbacks.Hes had a body that has been failing in recent years, he said.But because he was so meticulous with his preparation, it allowed him to keep fighting through and keep being an effective player for us.Hes super quick but has also got a massive tank. He was a team-orientated player but had flashes of brilliance.None more brilliant than that mark, when Walker used Essendon defender Jake Carlisle as a stepladder.I remember the excitement through the box then it just went quiet, it was almost like everyone stopped coaching for about 10 seconds to watch the replay, Barker said.Even without Walkers swansong, the Blues wont be lacking in motivation according to Barker.They have made significant gains during Brendon Boltons first season in charge but must aim to make plenty more in the final four rounds.We want to learn and get better each week. We dont want to get to the end of the year and think - gee, we wasted four weeks, Barker said. Earl Thomas III Jersey .1 million pounds ($61.2 million) on Saturday, giving the beleaguered English Premier League champions a major lift. Jon Ryan Jersey . World champions Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia won the gold medal with 237.71 points, Moore-Towers and Moscovitch followed at 208.45 and Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov of Russia were third at 187. . Bjorn, who had a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, made a testing six-foot putt to save par on the 16th and a birdie on the 17th before bogeying the final hole after a misjudged approach shot. American Kevin Streelman was in second place after shooting a 69. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Its deja vu all over again for the Tennessee Titans, who are starting out 1/3 for a third straight season and fourth in the past five years.Even with a new coach, they are struggling to clean up penalties and turnovers that have cost them in back-to-back losses. The latest mistakes cost special teams coordinator Bobby April his job on Monday, a day after his unit gave up 10 points in a 27-20 loss at Houston.Coach Mike Mularkey said he just didnt see improvement out of special teams before deciding to fire an assistant who worked for him in Buffalo in 2004-05. Mularkey spoke with Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk on Sunday night and says he isnt worried about his own job security.He also insists the Titans are better.Were very close. I know people are tired of hearing that, Im tired of saying it. But its a fact, Mularkey said.Theres a few plays, four to five plays a game, that have made a difference in the outcome of these games. I know in the past two years if we had been down 14 points in Houston, that would not have been a pretty outcome. And this team is competing with every team that weve played and had a chance to win every game we played. Weve got to find a way to win.The Titans came into this season expecting a turnaround behind a new general manager with Mularkey fully in charge, having been given the job permanently in January along with 23 new players on the roster. Now a month into the season, they are on the same track that wound up costing Ken Whisenhunt his coaching job after a 1-6 start.Linebacker Derrick Morgan sees a difference in this team from previous squads, especially in how the Titans responded when falling behind 14-0 in the first quarter in Houston.In years past, we more than likely wouldve folded in that situation, Morgan said. But I think we did a great job battling back and tying it up and actually making it a four-quarter game. ... We still lost the game, but you can kind oof see incremental improvements in the team. Sheldon Richardson Jersey. The Titans have had the ball late in each of the last two losses with a chance to either force overtime or go for a 2-point conversion and the win. But theyve put themselves in catch-up mode with too many mistakes.The second-least penalized team in the NFL last season, the Titans have been flagged for 19 penalties for 163 yards combined the past two games. A penalty for 12 men on the field at the end of the first half turned a punt by Houston into a 45-yard field goal and a 20-17 halftime lead for the Texans.The Titans also gave up a 67-yard punt return for a touchdown late in the third quarter that decided the game, which certainly didnt help April. Steve Hoffman, who is in his fourth season as an assistant with Tennessee and his 27th in the NFL, will take over special teams.Tennessees losses have come against teams with a combined 9-2 record in Minnesota, Oakland and Houston. The schedule for the rest of October gives the Titans a much more even playing field against opponents who are 3-13 combined. They visit Miami (1-3) on Sunday before hosting Cleveland (0-4), Indianapolis (1-3) and Jacksonville (1-3).Weve got to find a way to win, and weve got to find a way to cut down on critical mistakes at crucial times in the game and just play a complete game, Morgan said. Right now each phase is taking a turn at coming up short.Game notes Mularkey said DL Al Woods will miss up to a month after pulling a calf muscle at Houston. S DaNorris Searcy will be held out of practice Wednesday but may have a chance to return. ...
