If Steven Stamkos hadnt seen a slip in his point production in recent seasons, there wouldnt have been much conversation about the Tampa Bay Lightning paying him big bucks. But a drop from 1.19 points per game at his peak in 2012-13 to 0.83 points per contest in his contract year drew questions about the age curve, playing center over not, his relationship with head coach Jon Cooper and whether a leg injury in 2013-14 may have affected his game.But after spending the entire 2015-16 season debating whether the Lightning or any other team should sign the superstar to the leagues most lucrative contract, Stamkos has opened the season looking like he has returned to his status as an elite scorer, by posting 19 points in his first 16 games.A tweak by head coach Jon Cooper deserves credit for the Tampa Bay captains rejuvenation. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China .S. Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf. Nike NFL Jerseys China . The 28-year-old from Calgary matched his career best after missing just one shot in his two rounds of shooting in the mens 10-kilometre sprint competition. Smith finished in 23 minutes 15. http://www.nikecheapnfljerseys.com/ . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. Nike NFL Jerseys Outlet . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. Stitched Nike NFL Jerseys .Y. -- Syracuse has turned up the defence at the right time all season, and when High Point threatened to pull off a monumental upset the second-ranked Orange did what they do best with their quick hands and savvy play. MIAMI -- Manager Don Mattingly painted a grim picture.If his Miami Marlins team were a patient in a hospital, they would be on life support, Mattingly said.Its a sad image for a team that had high hopes earlier this summer.The Marlins trail the New York Mets, San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals in the NL wild-card chase. Only two of those three teams listed above can make the playoffs the way the race looks right now.All we can do, Mattingly said, is try to win every day and force the other teams to have to win games.That quest begins anew on Tuesday night, when ace right-hander Jose Fernandez takes the mound against the Washington Nationals.Fernandez, an All-Star this year for the second time in his brief career, is 15-8 with a 2.99 ERA. But he is even better at home, going 28-2 with a 1.53 ERA at Marlins Park since breaking into the majors.There should be a great pitching matchup on Tuesday as Washington will send right-hander Tanner Roark to the mound. Roark is also 15-8, and he has a 2.75 ERA.Tanner has been very valuable to us, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. It is tough to even imagine our team without his contribution.Marlins fans should enjoy Fernandezs contributions right now because this could be the last week of his season.Fernandez, who has pitched 174 1/3 innings this season, will likely pitch just two more games this year -- Tuesday against the Nationals and Sunday against the Atlanta Braves.The Marlins dont want to extend him too much past 180 innings in his first full year after elbow surgeryy.ddddddddddddMeanwhile, the Nationals, who have lost three games in a row, are looking to get back in the win column. There is no need for Nationals fans to panic -- their team is eight games ahead of the New York Mets in the NL East, after all.Still, Baker wants his team entering the playoffs riding a wave of momentum instead of a string of losses.The Nationals got pitcher Joe Ross back from the disabled list on Sunday. Another member of the rotation, Stephen Strasburg, has begun to toss the ball lightly.Getting Strasburg back in time for the playoffs would be huge.The Nationals want to get their offense untracked. Reigning NL MVP Bryce Harper has just one hit in his past 18 at-bats and is hitting just .242.No Strasburg and an ice-cold Harper -- thats not how the Nationals drew this thing up when considering their two biggest stars.In addition, while rookie Trea Turner has been a revelation offensively -- he is hitting .350 and has been igniting the offense as their leadoff man -- his defense has been shaky. He misplayed two fly balls on Monday that cost the Nationals three runs in a 4-3 loss to the Marlins.So yes, its safe to say the Nationals are a playoff team. But will they be hot once they get there?Thats what the next couple of weeks will determine, and -- from Washingtons perspective -- it would be great to beat Fernandez on Tuesday at Marlins Park where he has been a god-like figure. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
