FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Coach Mike Smith took his first steps to help the Atlanta Falcons return to NFL relevance, firing defensive line coach Ray Hamilton and offensive line coaches Pat Hill and Paul Dunn on Monday night. One day after ending a 4-12 season, Smith said the team must get tougher to win the line of scrimmage on both sides of the line. Smith said that defensive co-ordinator Mike Nolan, offensive co-ordinator Dirk Koetter and special teams co-ordinator Keith Armstrong will return next season. The firings of Hamilton, Hill and Dunn were hardly surprising as Atlantas offensive and defensive lines rarely won game-long battles on the line of scrimmage. Quarterback Matt Ryan was sacked a career-high 44 times. Poor play on the defensive line led to Atlanta entering Week 17 ranked last in third-down efficiency, 29th in scoring and 28th in total yards. General manager Thomas Dimitroff lamented "missed assessments" on acquiring some players and letting others go and how those moves affected the entire team. When training camp started, neither Smith nor Dimitroff envisioned holding a news conference to discuss anything worse than a loss in the Super Bowl after the Falcons narrowly lost the NFC title game last season. But injuries to star wideout Julio Jones, left tackle Sam Baker and defensive end Kroy Biermann were too much to overcome. Sean Weatherspoon, supposed to be Atlantas only every-down linebacker, was hurt and limited to just seven games. Receiver Roddy White and running back Steven Jackson played injured most of the season. "We believe we have a talented football team here and that we need to make adjustments," Dimitroff said, "but I really, truly believe we have the nucleus and the coach and the leadership to turn this around quickly within our off-season. Though Smith and Dimitroff wouldnt cite specific players, they didnt dispute that the offensive line was a disaster. Peter Konz was overmatched as a starting centre and starting right guard. The right tackle position remained in flux all season, and Lamar Holmes was inconsistent at left tackle. No discrepancy was worse than in the 21-20 season-ending home loss to Carolina. Ryan was sacked nine times and hit 14 others. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was sacked once and hit once. Ryan, as hes done throughout his six-year career, refused to blame his teammates for the poor protection. The two-time Pro Bowl QB, who signed a new five-year, $103.75 million contract last summer that guarantees $59 million, was more disturbed about his interception that Panthers cornerback Melvin White returned for a 3-yard touchdown. "Its the end of the season, and Im healthy, but we all have to improve," Ryan said. "I have to play better. We have to play better up front. We have to play better on the outside. Collectively, we didnt play good enough to win." Atlantas defensive line wasnt much better. Releasing veteran end John Abraham last March proved to be a bad decision after he put up big numbers for Arizona. His replacement, free agent acquisition Osi Umenyiora, was unable to hold onto the role he wanted as an every-down end. But Smith and Dimitroff were proud of the performances of rookie cornerback Desmond Trufant, a first-round draft pick, and rookie linebacker Paul Worrilow, an undrafted free agent.

He will play 10th-seeded Feliciano Lopez in Sundays final, after the Spanish left-hander defeated Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic 7-6 (7), 6-4.ALAMEDA, Calif. - The Oakland Raiders defence was dealt a big blow back in the preseason when middle linebacker and defensive signal caller Nick Roach suffered a season-ending concussion.That injury set the tone this season for the Raiders, who have had to piece together their defence on the fly because of a litany of injuries.The Raiders (2-12) have nine defensive players on season-ending injured reserve, including the teams top two strong safeties, two linebackers, a starting defensive end and a starting cornerback.Those absences have played a big role in Oaklands struggles this season as the team will miss the playoffs for the 12th straight year.I think it takes a toll, but its hard to use those things, interim coach Tony Sparano said. Everybodys hurt right now. Its just the next-man-up mentality for us and weve been fortunate that some of these young guys have gone in there and done a good job. Thats the good news, is that youre not going to have to sit here at the end of the season and wonder whether or not so-and-so can play.Thats the one positive from all the injuries. The Raiders have gotten plenty of chances to see what some of the younger players can do when they get playing time. That will give them a better idea of what needs to be prioritized come the off-season.Were about playing together, were about playing with passion, defensive co-ordinator Jason Tarver said. Whats been great is the young men keep jumping in and rallying around each other. Thats what its about.Miles Burris stepped in for Roach and struggled at the start in his adjustment to middle linebacker but now has shown versatility to play all three spots in the future.When outside linebacker Sio Moore went down last week with a season-ending hip injury, former college safety Ray-Ray Armstrong got his most extensive time ever at liinebacker with 63 defensive snaps.ddddddddddddIts always great having good opportunity, Armstrong said. Its what you do with it. Just trying to make the most of it and help my team out.Armstrong is not alone in getting an opportunity. Benson Mayowa, claimed off waivers from Seattle earlier this season, has gotten ample time in place of LaMarr Woodley at defensive end.There has been a revolving door at strong safety after starter Tyvon Branch and backup Usama Young went down with injuries. Brandian Ross stepped in and played much better than he did a year ago as a replacement starter and also showed the ability to play in the slot in nickel packages.Larry Asante also played well before he was put on injured reserve earlier this month.The secondary has been a work in progress much of the year with starting cornerback Carlos Rogers out for the season with a knee injury and fellow starter Tarell Brown slowed in recent weeks by a foot injury.Those injuries have allowed second-year player DJ Hayden and rookie TJ Carrie to get significant playing time that will pay off in the future.I think thats very, very valuable and I think theres huge carry-over, Sparano said. I think that that provides a real easy transition into Year 2 for them. The game doesnt surprise them. The speed of the game doesnt surprise them. The preparation that it takes to play the game doesnt surprise them.NOTES: The Raiders announced the game Sunday against Buffalo is sold out and will be televised locally. Oakland sold out every home game this season. ... CB Tarell Brown did not practice for a second straight day with a foot injury but still could play Sunday. ...DL C.J. Wilson returned on a limited basis after missing practice Wednesday with a knee injury.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Hawks Jerseys Cheap Celtics Jerseys Cheap Nets Jerseys Cheap Hornets Jerseys Cheap Bulls Jerseys Cheap Cavaliers Jerseys Cheap Mavericks Jerseys Cheap Nuggets Jerseys Cheap Pistons Jerseys Cheap Warriors Jerseys Cheap Rockets Jerseys Cheap Pacers Jerseys Cheap Clippers Jerseys Cheap Lakers Jerseys Cheap Grizzlies Jerseys ' ' '
