LAKE FOREST, Ill. Nike Roshe Run Kengät . - After his defence allowed more than 50 points for the second consecutive game, Chicago Bears co-ordinator Mel Tucker says the pressure he feels comes from some place other than disgruntled fans.I dont feel any pressure other than what I put on myself, and thats a lot of pressure, Tucker said.Tuckers defence has dropped to 26th in the league and 28th against the pass heading into Sundays home game against Minnesota. Last Sundays 55-14 blowout loss in Green Bay came on the heels of a 51-23 loss at New England, making the Bears the first team to allow 50 points or more back to back since the 1923 Rochester Jeffersons.The struggles of quarterback Jay Cutler and the offence are often the focus of critics in Chicago. But a defence that used to be the backbone of the franchise is bordering on laughingstock status. Coach Marc Trestman said this week he is planning no staff changes, and Tucker said hes not receiving specific pressure from his boss.I just feel pressure to coach the best that I can, he said. Thats the pressure I put on myself. Ive never been anywhere where there wasnt pressure to win and there wasnt pressure to play well.The Bears have been outscored in the first half of the last three games 94-7, including 42-0 Sunday that was a franchise record for points allowed in a half.Obviously we were not prepared enough and our effort and everything we do needs to be better, Tucker said. There is nothing that was good enough and regardless if we thought we were ready going into the game, obviously we need to make sure we are even more ready going into this next game.Chicagos defence finished 30th in the league and last against the run in 2013 under Tucker, but Trestman stood behind him. Tucker is now in his second year as defensive co-ordinator after doing the same job for four years in Jacksonville.Players are defending Tucker.I do believe in the system, veteran Bears linebacker Lance Briggs said. And I believe in the guys that are in that (locker) room, that we all have in the room. And when I say those guys, it means my teammates and my coaches.Briggs admitted the confidence level of the team could be better, although he said it doesnt have to stay that way.The confidence level? Shoot. Ive never been in a situation like this and the last year, he said. As tough as it is, today is definitely better than yesterday and you could say the same about the day before. And really, at this point, its every one day at a time and its one play at a time. And its one practice at a time.Players acknowledge hearing the criticism about their coaches and the team, but try to forget it.It would be the most stressful life in the world, defensive end Jared Allen said. Goodness, wed be king one day, wed be dead the next. We have to focus on what we know and we know football.Even family members are catching heat these days. Trestman said his two daughters have become targets for what he calls Twitter terrorists.No. 1, thats a personal issue, he said. Thats a family issue and well work through that. The thing that that brings up is that theres another side of the coin and theres a lot of support out there for my family and for what were going through during this adversity. I try to find the glass loaded up with good things, too.After starting the season with high expectations, the team is wondering what kind of reception they will get Sunday in their first home game since Oct. 19. Chicago (3-6) is at the bottom of the NFC North, one game behind the Vikings (4-5).I understand the impatience from the fans, Briggs said. Obviously this city deserves better. We deserve better. We deserve better for ourselves.Notes: Tight end Martellus Bennett (ribs), cornerback Tim Jennings (knee), wide receiver Brandon Marshall (ankle) and tackle Jordan Mills (ribs) all missed Wednesdays practice. ... The team signed former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver B.J. Cunningham and guard Antoine McClain to the practice squad. McClain has spent time with Baltimore, Oakland, Buffalo and New Orleans.

Kamloops, B.C., the host city of this years Tim Hortons Brier, is where he won his first Canadian mens curling crown in 1996. He has won twice since -- the last in 2011 -- and is a two-time world champion. "Its kind of special being able to come back after so many years to a place with some great memories," he said in an interview. "Its pretty cool and the team is really looking forward to getting on with the week." The Brier starts Saturday and runs to March 9. Last year Stoughton lost the Brier final in Edmonton 11-4 to Brad Jacobs and his Northern Ontario rink. Stoughton had a disappointing 3-4 finish at the Olympic Curling Trials in December, as Jacobs went undefeated in claiming the right to wear Canadas colours in Sochi. Stoughton had lots of company. No one could slow the juggernaut from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.. "There was only one happy team coming out of those trials and that was obviously Jacobs," said Stoughton. "We just sort of decompressed for a few weeks and then got right back at it, had a great Skins Game, great fun Continental Cup with the guys, and then just carried right through to the Safeway championship in Winnipeg." In this years Brier field -- with both Jacobs and Alberta veteran Kevin Martin absent -- Stoughton and Albertas Kevin Koe are favourites. Manitoba has a record 27 wins at the Brier, followed closely by Alberta with 25. Koe is representing Alberta this year for the third time, after beating Martin 7-5 to take the provincial title. Koe won the Brier in 2010, his first appearance, and went on to win a world championship. Just getting out of Alberta is tough for Koe, who curls out of Calgary. "Youve got to get through one of the top teams in the world in Kevin Martin and its definitely not realistic to think you can do that every year," he said. He recognizes hes going to be one of the favourites along with Stoughton but says thats no different than any other year and the rest of the field may be deeper than some suspect. "Theres quite a few teams that a lot of people dont know about that I think will do pretty good, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, maybe even the Territories. I think its a pretty tough field actually." Theres maybe a little family pride creeping in there. For the third time in five years, hell be joined at the Brier by brother Jamie, who skips the Northwest Territories-Yukon entry. Jamie Koe is making his eighth appearance. In 2012, the brothers met in the 3 vs. 4 Page playoff. Kevin won and Jamie later lost to Manitobas Rob Fowler in the bronze-medal match but it was still a strong finish for a Territories team. Saskatchewan is led by 2003 World Junior champ Steve Laycock, back for his second appearance as skip at the Canadiann championship with a new team of Kirk Muyres, Colton Flasch and Dallan Muryes. harmaa Mens Womens Nike Roshe Run Print Juoksukengät. Jean-Michel Menard is back for his eighth try after becoming just the second skip from Quebec to win the championship in 2006. His lineup consists of Martin Crete, Eric Sylvain and brother Philippe Menard. One of the only new faces this year is Ontarios Greg Balsdon, who stopped Glenn Howard from making his ninth straight appearance at the Brier. "I dont want to say we lucked out because weve had good games but theyve obviously beaten us more than weve beaten them," Balsdon said of the final, that saw Howard miss with his last rock and give up the winning point. Balsdon is new to the Canadian mens championship. He was part of the Cory Heggestad-led team that won the 2013 Canadian Mixed, but he says this feels bigger. "It feels just amazing. I dont think well truly appreciate it until were there," he said. Another team that has the chops to run with the best is also the hometown favourite -- John Morris and his B.C. rink, that features former skip and Kamloops native Jim Cotter at third. "Its exciting," says Cotter. "I think back 18 years ago when it was in Kamloops and Barry McPhee was the hometown team and I remember watching in the crowd there and I was pretty excited for those guys. . . Here we are 18 years later and Ive got the same opportunity." They made it all the way to the final against Jacobs at the Olympic Trials by beating Martin. After a disappointing loss, they took a few weeks off during the holidays to regroup but Cotter says they took good things out of the trials into the provincial finals in B.C. The addition of the veteran Morris, now curling for his third province, has made a huge difference, Cotter says. "We really have clicked. Johns just a phenomenal guy on and off the ice." Jacobs, meanwhile, is still celebrating his Olympic gold-medal win. The schedule made it virtually impossible to compete for a berth in this years Brier, although starting in 2015 the previous years winner will get an automatic berth, something the women already do. With Jacobs out of the mix, 1996 Canadian junior champ Jeff Currie was able to shift the Northern Ontario title from Sault Ste. Marie to Thunder Bay with his team of Mike McCarville, Colin Koivula and Jamie Childs. Former Olympic champ Brad Gushue from Newfoundland and Labrador is still the headliner out of the Atlantic provinces and James Grattan is making his 11th appearance for New Brunswick. Eddie MacKenzie has led Prince Edward Island to the Brier for three of the last four years and Jamie Murphy is back after also representing Nova Scotia at the 2012 championship. Brier finalists each receive $40,000 in prize money, the bronze medallist gets $30,000 and the $20,000 goes to the fourth-place team.
