Killer http://www.vikingsofficialonlineshop.com/Teddy_Bridgewater_Jersey_Vikings storms clobber Midwest communities
Mark Styninger, the coroner of Washington County in southern Illinois, said an elderly man and his sister were killed http://www.vikingsofficialonlineshop.com/Anthony_Barr_Jersey_Vikings around noon when a tornado hit their home in the rural community of New Minden.
In central Illinois, the town of Washington appeared particularly hard hit, with one resident saying his neighborhood was wiped out in a matter of seconds by a tornado."I stepped outside and I heard it coming. My daughter was already in the basement, so I ran downstairs and grabbed her, crouched in the laundry room and all of a sudden I could see daylight up the stairway and my house was gone," Michael Perdun said Sunday afternoon in an interview with The Associated Press on his cellphone. "The whole neighborhood's gone, (and) the wall of my fireplace is all that is left of my house."By mid afternoon it remained unclear how many people were hurt. In a news release, the Illinois National Guard said it had dispatched 10 firefighters and three vehicles to Washington to assist with "immediate search and recovery operations in the tornado damaged area."And Steve Brewer, chief Authentic Teddy Bridgewater Jersey operating officer at Methodist Medical Center of Illinois in Peoria, said that four or five people had come to the hospital seeking treatment, but he described their injuries as minor. He said another area hospital had received about 15 patients, but did not know the severity of their injuries.
Brewer said doctors and other medical professionals were setting up a temporary emergency care center to treat the injured before transporting them to area hospitals."I went over there immediately after the tornado, walking through the neighborhoods, and I couldn't even tell what street I was on," Alderman Tyler Gee told WLS TV. "Just completely flattened some of the neighborhoods here in town, hundreds of homes."About 90 minutes after the tornado destroyed homes in Washington, the storm darkened downtown Chicago. As the rain and high winds slammed into the area, officials at Soldier Field evacuated the Authentic Anthony Barr Jersey stands and ordered the Bears and Baltimore Ravens off the field. According to the National Weather Services' website, a total of 59 tornadoes had struck, the bulk of them in Illinois. Within an hour, the weather service said that tornadoes had touched down in Washington, Metamora, Morton and other central Illinois communities, though officials could not say whether it was one tornado touching down or several."This is a very dangerous situation," said Russell Schneider, director of the weather service's Storm Prediction Center. Strong winds and atmospheric instability were expected to sweep across the central Plains during the day before pushing into the mid Atlantic states and northeast by evening. But he said temperatures Sunday were expected to reach into the 60s and 70s, which he said is warm enough to help produce severe weather when it is coupled with winds, which are typically stronger this time of year than in the summer."You don't need temperatures in the 80s and 90s to produce severe weather (because) the strong winds compensate for the lack of heating," he said. "That sets the stage for what we call wind shear, which may produce tornadoes."He also said that the tornadoes this time a year happen more often than people might realize, pointing to a twister that hit the Rockford, Ill., area in November 2010.

a very good player. All those guys get after it pretty good, Oher said. "He's a good player. The Steelers have always been a good defense and still are a defense now."

NY Giants playoff hopes suffer big blow after dropping critical game to Baltimore Ravens
Giants NY Giants playoff hopes suffer big blow after dropping critical game to Baltimore Ravens, who clinch AFC North title RAVENS 33, GIANTS 14: Suddenly, the champs are playoff longshots, and missing the postseason isn't merely possible, it's likely. In order for the Giants to make the playoffs, they'll need to beat the Eagles next Sunday and hope that the Cowboys and a handful of other NFC clubs (including the Bears and Vikings) also lose. By Ebenezer Samuel / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Published: Sunday, December 23, 2012, 7:43 PM Updated: Monday, December 24, 2012, 1:40 AM
Instead of winning on Sunday, in their most critical game of a season gone mad, they delivered the most inexplicable performance of the year. The Giants stepped onto the field armed with the knowledge that they needed to win their final two games of the season to clinch a playoff berth.
They left with a 34 13 blowout loss to the Ravens that shattered their already fragile confidence, left their coach nearly speechless and all but eliminated them from a postseason that they don't even believe they belong in.
PHOTOS: A GIANT LOSS FOR BIG BLUE IN BALTIMORE
"Do we deserve it by the way we played? Do we?" defensive end Jason Pierre Paul said. "I don't think so, man. We went out there and p on our legs. That's really all I can say."
The defending Super Bowl champions are now playoff longshots after turning in a second straight listless performance and their fifth setback in seven games, and several players sounded ready to concede the season.
Tailback Ahmad Bradshaw said the Giants are "playing for pride" next Sunday against the Eagles, and JPP added that "we've got just one more game to play, and we're going to play it out.
"Try to get the win," Pierre Paul said, "try to get 9 7, it's better than 8 8."
They can still make the playoffs; they'll need a win over the Eagles, a loss or tie by the Cowboys and losses by the Bears and Vikings. But if that Ryan Clady Women's Jersey unlikely scenario doesn't work out, the Giants (8 7) will go the way of the 2009 Pittsburgh Steelers, the last team to miss the playoffs the season after winning the Super Bowl. And it would be the third such time in Big Blue's history. Yet the defending champs are ready for their fate.
They certainly didn't show any pride Sunday. Baltimore entered with a struggling offense and three straight losses. But by halftime, the Ravens had built a 24 7 lead, thanks to two TD passes and one touchdown run from QB Joe Flacco, and they were well on their way to clinching the AFC North title.
For the second straight week, the Giants didn't fight back. While the defense was surrendering 533 total yards to the Ravens (a season high for Baltimore), the Eli Manning led offense turned punchless again, managing just 186 total yards and scoring only once (David Wilson's 14 yard TD run in the first quarter) when the game was within reach.
"We wanted to come into this game and at least put up a fight and get some points," Victor Cruz said, hardly sounding like a receiver who expected to win. "Get some momentum, get things going into the right direction. But unfortunately, we couldn't do that today."
All of this from a Giants http://www.footballbroncosprostore.com/broncos-ryan-clady-jersey-c-34.html squad that once lorded over the NFC East with a 6 2 record, and made it look so easy. But now, that team is searching for answers. How is the same Giants team that demolished the playoff bound 49ers and Packers destined to watch the playoffs on TV? How can the offense that fought back from so many deficits last season get outscored 67 14 the last two weeks?
"There's obviously something missing here," said safety Antrel Rolle. "This is not who we are. This is not our team. But it's the team we displayed two weeks in a row now."
"A team like this, with so much talent and so much ability on both sides of the ball, it's kind of difficult to explain," added Cruz. "Coming into a game like this and not putting up points, and not being able to Peyton Manning Women's Jersey stop them, it's disappointing."
Several players suggested the team was waiting for a "spark" over the last few weeks.
But that spark never came, and the champions' confidence gradually eroded.
"We weren't able to get it done," Tom Coughlin said. "We don't have momentum going. and we're not a very confident group right now. It's one of those things in any profession that you have to earn confidence."
The only thing the Giants earned Sunday: a long offseason.
