EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Danny Etling Jersey .J. - New York Giants linebacker Keenan Robinson knows a little something about the Washington Redskins. Robinson played in Washington for three seasons before joining the Giants.Whats happening with the 0-2 Redskins right now looks familiar to Robinson, who signed a one-year deal with the Giants this offseason. Washington has allowed 65 points the first two weeks of the season despite signing prized free-agent cornerback Josh Norman, and there are already reports of grumbling in the locker room.Robinson has seen this before.Its the same old story, he said Tuesday as the Giants began preparations to face the Redskins on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.Robinson left as a free agent this past offseason. He said he was offered a long-term deal after the 2014 campaign, but he decided against it because he didnt think Washington was where he wanted to be for the next four or five years.The atmosphere wasnt right, he said, and he struggled with injuries and performance last season. A return was never an option, even though the Redskins won the NFC East and made the playoffs in 2015.When I was there, three out of four years, it was the same thing, Robinson said. Once they get down, they start pointing fingers. And that is true. That is what happens. And for the Redskins -- Ive only been on one team before I came here, and that was them -- and all I saw was not the right way to handle it. I feel like they didnt handle it the right way when I was there. They may be handling it different now. But when I was there, they started pointing fingers, people started talking. Thats how you get dissension in the locker room.For us, we have to use that to our advantage. We have to do what we do, play our role, play football, play aggressive, play fast, play physical. We cant worry about what their team is doing.Robinson is much happier with the Giants. Hes not starting in their base defense, but he is one of their two primary nickel linebackers. He played 52 of the 62 defensive snaps Sunday as the Giants held quarterback Drew Brees and the Saints to one touchdown.I like it here better. I would say that for sure, Robinson said. Obviously, I was there four years now, Im here now. Just so far, the kind of atmosphere, youve got a whole bunch of guys from new places and we have lots of big changes on the defensive side of the ball. Weve all seemed to bond together, come together pretty well. Youve got a lot of big name guys but they dont act like big name guys. Devin McCourty Jersey . Hey!" The lower tier of the School End of Queens Park Rangers Loftus Road was packed solid with a very festive-sounding Chelsea choral section in this particular part of South Africa Road London, W12. Duke Dawson Jersey . The return match will take place next Wednesday. Udinese leads Fiorentina 2-1 in the other semifinal. Napoli staged a second-half comeback from two goals down after Gervinhos opener and a stunning strike from Kevin Strootman. http:///...-Allen-Draft-Jersey/ . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. CHICAGO -- Following two stints in the minors this season, Randal Grichuk is back in the majors and eager to prove he belongs.Grichuk hit a grand slam that capped a six-run burst in the eighth inning and the St. Louis Cardinals stopped the Cubs 11-game winning streak, beating Chicago 8-4 Saturday.After a run-scoring wild pitch and a bases-loaded walk with two outs in the eighth put the Cardinals ahead 4-2, Grichuk connected.It was his second homer since being recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Thursday -- and it came on his 25th birthday, no less.I feel like a lot of people let that opportunity slip away thinking theyre going to have many more, Grichuk said. Im definitely thankful for being up here right now and getting the opportunities, and Im definitely trying to take advantage of it.Brandon Moss and Jedd Gyorko also homered for St. Louis.Addison Russell hit his 14th homer for the NL Central-leading Cubs.Alex Reyes (1-0) pitched three scoreless innings of relief to get his first major league win in his second appearance.St. Louis starter Luke Weaver gave up two runs on four hits in his major league debut. The 22-year-old was lifted for a pinch hitter after four innings and 85 pitches.Carl Edwards Jr. (0-1) allowed five runs while getting only two outs.Chicago starter Kyle Hendricks struck out 12, matching a career best, in seven innings. He gave up five hits, including two homers. His ERA rose slightly from 2.17 to 2.19.Just two bad changeups, really, two changeups up (in the strike zone), Hendricks said. That was about it. Hopefully, we could keep that winning streak going, but well start a new one tomorrow.It was 2-all in the eighth when the Cardinals loaded the bases with one out. Edwards Jr. struck out Yadier Molina with a breaking pitch in the dirt and the ball bounced off the chest of catcher Willson Contreras and rolled toward the third-base dugout, allowing Stephen Piscotty to score.Edwards then walked the next two batters to force in another run. Joe Smith relieved and Grichuk hit his slam.It means a lot, Grichuk said. Its definitely a confidence booster. In Wrigley against the Cubss, a division rival, its definitely big and, hopefully, the confidence can carry over through the rest of the season. Malcolm Mitchell Jersey. FUTURE ACES?With Weaver and Reyes, 21, the Cardinals have a pair of prized pitching prospects. Manager Mike Matheny was asked if he allowed himself to think about both being in the rotation next season while watching them on Saturday.I wont deny that that hit me at some point in that game, Matheny said. I even turned to (bench coach) Dave Bell and said, `This is really impressive stuff. These kids are making a nice first statement.You probably couldnt throw them into a hotter spot than what we just threw them into. This is a tough place to pitch and watching them . not just survive, I thought they looked terrific, he said.LA STELLA UPDATEThe Cubs are awaiting a decision from INF Tommy La Stella, who was put on the inactive list earlier this week after failing to report to Triple-A Iowa following a demotion last month. La Stella returned to his home in New Jersey.Im still very optimistic about him coming back, but nothing has really abruptly changed right now, manager Joe Maddon said. I think he was very clear how he felt. I think we were very clear back to him how we felt.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: OF Matt Holliday (broken right thumb) was placed 15-day disabled on Saturday to make room for Weaver on the roster.Cubs: After a bullpen session Friday, RHP Hector Rondon (sore triceps) reported no physical complications. Maddon said the reliever was real close to a return to the active roster ... RHP Pedro Strop, who had an arthroscopic procedure to repair a meniscus tear in his left knee on Thursday, was back in the clubhouse on Saturday walking on crutches. Hes expected to be sidelined four to six weeks.UP NEXTCubs RHP John Lackey (9-7, 3.56 ERA) pitches the finale on Sunday. Lackey, who jumped from the Cardinals to the Cubs in the offseason, is 1-1 with a 2.70 ERA against St. Louis this season. RHP Mike Leake (8-9, 4.79) goes for the Cardinals.
