JERSEY CITY, N. Wholesale Custom Football Jerseys .J. -- Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch deservedly draw the attention for what theyve done in getting the Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl. Players like Jermaine Kearse, Walter Thurmond and Malcolm Smith are just as big a reason why Seattle is facing Denver in Sundays championship game. Seattle may have one of the better starting lineups in the NFL, but the depth that general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll have amassed is equally impressive. Its the reason they can rotate eight different defensive linemen. Its why when Brandon Browner was injured and Thurmond suspended, Byron Maxwell could step in and the play in Seattles secondary not suffer. Its a regular refrain in the Seattle locker room to hear teammates say the Seahawks reserves could be starters on other teams. And there is some proof: in the past year 23 players once with Seattle have spent time on the 53-man roster of other teams. "Its crazy because were always saying our backups could be starters. We always say that," strong safety Kam Chancellor said. "Those guys, people dont see this, but in practice those guys play just as good as us. Theyre making plays, getting the ball. Those guys contribute on special teams. Our special teams are probably one of the best. "Those guys put in work on special teams and it just goes unseen." When Carroll and Schneider took over, there was a revolving door of roster moves --839 in total since before the start of the 2010 season -- that followed in an effort to make a roster that was competitive beyond just the starters on each side of the ball. They wanted a depth chart that was the envy of the NFL. They wanted their reserves coveted by other teams. They wanted guys they were going to be released grabbed off the waiver wire the second they were made available. Seattle got its wish. Of the players released in the past year, five ended up in Jacksonville and four landed in Kansas City. "John and I have joined together aggressively to compete at every single turn, at every opportunity whatever it may be, to see if theres something in there for us," Carroll said. "Hes done a great job of having the competitive will to keep pushing and fighting and clawing and scratching to have the opportunity that has sent us down the road early on with the hundreds of guys that came through the program." Kearse, Thurmond and Smith are just three examples of players not counted on as full-time starters that have proven invaluable. Seattles seen contributions from Michael Bowie, Clinton McDonald, Jeremy Lane and Heath Farwell just to name a few more. Kearse was an undrafted free agent that signed with Seattle in 2012 and became a needed option as a third and fourth receiver this season with Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice suffering through injuries. Kearse finished with 22 receptions and four touchdowns in the regular season, but his biggest catch came in the NFC championship game when his 35-yard TD grab in the fourth quarter gave Seattle a 20-17 lead. Thurmond missed four games late in the season when he was suspended for violating the leagues substance-abuse policy. But hes started three games at cornerback this season and is Seattles best option as the fifth defensive back covering slot receivers -- a big emphasis this week with the amount of times the Broncos throw. Smith has shown the same kind of versatility at linebacker. Hes played both outside spot this season, first when Bruce Irvin was suspended and later when injuries to K.J. Wright and Bobby Wagner forced shuffling. "Through all the stuff we have gone through there has always been a guy who stepped up and made plays," Wagner said. "Last year it was Walter, this year it was Walter and Maxwell and guys like Malcolm, everybody. We have a bunch of players that if someone went down can step in and do a great job." One of the ways Seattle was able to create such a dynamic roster came from the three-way quarterback competition that Carroll had last season and which Wilson eventually won. It sent the message to the entire roster and to any free agents -- big-name or small-time -- that Seattle was a place they could come and have a chance. "You could tell looking at our board of players that we had fast, confident, intelligent individuals," Schneider said last week. "Guys who knew they were going to come in and compete for positions because the previous year we had a three person quarterback competition. "You know you have a shot when you have a three person quarterback competition as a player." Custom Dallas Cowboys Jerseys Cheap .K.

Masahiro Tanaka has touched down in the United States and the courting of the Rakuten Golden Eagles stud pitcher has begun in earnest by a bevy of MLB teams interested in the Japanese ace.NEW YORK -- Masahiro Tanaka shook his head and laughed when he was asked about that bubbly Japanese pop song he warmed up to -- the one that was written just for him and hasnt been released yet. "Id appreciate it if you could wait another month," to ask about it, he said through a translator. Theres a lot about the young Japanese star thats a work in progress. Tanaka struck out 10 over seven innings of his first start at Yankee Stadium, showing off the nasty split-fingered fastball that made him the prize pitcher of the off-season after going 24-0 in Japan. But he also gave up another early homer, this time a soaring three-run shot to Jonathan Schoop in the second inning of the Baltimore Orioles 5-4 victory over New York on Wednesday night. "Thats something I need to adjust," Tanaka said of the trouble in the first couple of innings, "But its really hard to make an assessment just by two games." Nick Markakis had an RBI single and Chris Davis a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning against fill-in closer Shawn Kelley as the Orioles rallied for their second straight win. Carlos Beltran and Kelly Johnson connected against Miguel Gonzalez in the second. Alfonso Soriano tied it with a groundout in the fourth. The Orioles lined four straight hits to centre field off Kelley, pitching the ninth for the second time in place of the injured David Robertson. Ryan Flaherty and Schoop each got hits on an 0-2 pitch from Kelley (0-1) and Markakis singled in Flaherty and, after Delmon Young had his third hit of the night, Davis made it 5-3 with a sacrifice fly. I felt like they did a good job getting the barrel to some good pitches," Kelley said. "If I bounced some of those balls, maybe theyre swing and misses." Tommy Hunter gave up two hits to start the ninth and a sacrifice fly to former Oriole Brian Roberts before getting Yangervis Solarte to ground into a double play for his third save. Brian Matusz got two outs (1-0) in the eighth. "Its not always going to be pretty, you just look at the result," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. There were many empty seats on a brisk night in the Bronx despite it being New Yorks first chance to see the prrized Tanaka, who signed a seven-year, $155 million contract with the Yankees this winter -- plus a $20 million rights fee paid to his team in Japan, Ratuken. Custom Football Jerseys Online. Tanaka warmed up to "My Dear Fellow" by the Japanese group Momoiro Clover Z. He then received a rude welcome from Markakis. The Orioles leadoff batter grounded the first pitch of the game right back at Tanaka, hitting the right-hander on the foot before it deflected to shortstop Derek Jeter, who made the throw for the out. In similar fashion to his first big league start at Toronto, Tanaka was tagged early before settling in. He gave up three runs -- two earned -- in the first two innings Friday of a seven-inning outing in which he struck out eight. This time, Schoop hit a drive high above the left field pole in the second inning. But Tanaka gave up just three more singles -- seven hits overall -- and a walk on 101 pitches. "Again, it seemed like he got better as the night went on," manager Joe Girardi said. Gonzalez was equal to the task, allowing seven hits and three runs. He walked one and struck out three. Adam Jones came up to a smattering of boos before his first at-bat a day after he said, "They should let us have a shot to kick em with our metal spikes," about two fans who ran on the field during Tuesdays game. The fans shenanigans got a huge cheer from the crowd. Jones struck out his first two times up to hardy cheers. Jones wasnt alone. Tanaka had the Orioles flailing at his nasty split-fingered fastball all night, many bouncing in the dirt. "Were not the same hitters he faced over there. We groove, we hack," said Jones, who singled in his third at-bat off Tanaka. NOTES: Tanakas walk of Matt Wieters in the third snapped a streak of five straight games in which the Yankees starter did not allow a free pass. ... Orioles LHP Johan Santana (shoulder) will pitch BP Saturday in Sarasota, Fla. ... RHP Dylan Bundy (Tommy John surgery) threw 35 fastballs. Manager Buck Showalter said it went well. ... Up next: The Yankees begin a four-game series against Boston Thursday. Michael Pineda (1-0) makes his first Yankee Stadium start. The Orioles open a series against Toronto in Baltimore on Friday.
