OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens ran out of patience waiting for their lacklustre offensive line to become an effective group. After watching the Ravens yield 12 sacks and average a scant 64 yards rushing during the first four games, general manager Ozzie Newsome obtained left tackle Eugene Monroe from the Jacksonville Jaguars for a pair of draft picks. "Its a sign that this football team wants to win and we want to win now," defensive lineman Chris Canty said Wednesday. "Were not going to accept anything less than championship performance. Hopefully he comes in here and puts us in a better position to win." The trade had not been formally finalized by Wednesday afternoon, so Monroe did not practice with the team. But coach John Harbaugh expects the 6-foot-5, 305-pounder to immediately challenge Bryant McKinnie for the starting job at left tackle. "Obviously, were bringing Eugene in to play," Harbaugh said. "How soon that can happen remains to be seen. The main thing is, it makes us better almost immediately in terms of adding a football player of that quality to our team. Well just figure it out. Well fit it together to use these guys the best way we can." McKinnie was a key figure in Baltimores run to a Super Bowl title last year. Although hes struggled at times this season, the 12-year veteran is far from being the sole reason for the inadequate performance of the offensive line. Second-year centre Gino Gradkowski is still getting used to calling the blocking assignments on the line. And everyone up front is adjusting to Juan Castillo, whos in his first year as run game co-ordinator. But Ray Rice, who has a meagre 89 yards in 30 carries this year, openly questioned the determination of the offensive line. Asked how the line can match its performance of a year ago, Rice replied, "We have to match the other teams intensity to be effective in the run game. Sometimes a guy wants it a little bit more on the other side. Thats what we have to do, we have to fight that. We have to match the other teams intensity." Right tackle Michael Oher wasnt quite sure if the problem with the running game rested solely upon the offensive line. "Theres not one thing that I can pinpoint," Oher said. "I guess we have to do a better job -- if we open a hole, open a bigger hole, stuff like that." Virtually nothing worked last Sunday in a 23-20 loss to Buffalo. Baltimore attempted a franchise-record low nine rushing attempts and yielded four sacks. Not only that, but quarterback Joe Flacco threw five interceptions, many of them while under duress in the pocket. Flacco is certain that a few tweaks, and not necessarily an overhaul of the line, would make things better. "Just little things. Cleaning up some little things up front," Flacco said. "Its nothing crazy. Just little things here and there that are pretty easily fixed. Im not really too worried about it." The Ravens (2-2) are going to need to buckle down up front to beat the Miami Dolphins (3-1) on the road Sunday. "We just need to keep working and keep fighting out there to get better," guard Marshal Yanda said. "The last game was a little tough. We kind of got away from the run a little bit just because we were down. Its just one of those things where we have to keep working at it. Theres no magical formula." Maybe not, but the addition of Monroe -- the eighth overall pick in the 2009 draft -- cant hurt. The 26-year-old could contribute as soon as this Sunday. "Hes strong, athletic, can move," Oher said. "Hes a very hard worker, hes a good player. Hes going to fit what were trying to do. It will just give the Ravens another option." Derek Watt Jersey . Bilbaos first victory in four rounds lifted it four points clear of Real Sociedad and kept it in command of Spains last Champions League berth for next season. In contrast, Betis was left 11 points from safety after a dismal performance that at times bordered on self-destruction amid some questionable refereeing decisions. Max Tuerk Jersey . -- Brady Heslip scored a season-high 20 points to help Baylor beat No. http://www.authenticchargersnflfansmall.com/c-65-chargers-kenny-wiggins-jersey.aspx. It certainly isnt a coincidence that Dwight Howard has scored at least 20 points in each game of the winning streak. Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey . The 30-year-old Kottaras served as Kansas Citys backup catcher last season after being claimed off waivers from Oakland in January. Hunter Henry Jersey . Viewers in the Canadiens region can watch the game on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt and listen on TSN 690. The Canadiens have won three in a row and four of their last five games and recently put the finishing touches on a 3-1-0 road trip.PARIS -- Novak Djokovic worked his way back into the French Open final, taking care of Ernests Gulbis and his big serve 6-3, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 Friday on the first sunny day of this years tournament. The second-seeded Serb was able to control the pace of the match on Court Philippe Chatrier while letting Gulbis unforced errors mount. The powerful Latvian, who was playing in his first Grand Slam semifinal, finished with 44 errors. Djokovic is a six-time major champion who needs to win the title at the French Open to complete a career Grand Slam. He also reached the final at Roland Garros in 2012, but lost to eight-time champion Rafael Nadal. Djokovic will next face either Nadal or Andy Murray in Sundays final. They were up next on Chatrier. Djokovic was first to get into trouble in the first semifinal, but he managed to save two break points and hold to 2-2 in the opening set. A few minutes later, he was ahead for good. Djokovic needed three attempts to earn his first break of the match, and he finally got it when Gulbis sent one of his many forehands long. It was also in that game that Gulbis had his first of five double-faults. His second double came in the final game of the set, when Djokovic broke again. And his third came when trailing Djokovic 4-3 in the second, when the Serb broke yet again. "Im not used to (playing) these kind of big matches," Gulbis said. "Its just normal I felt extra nervous and extra tense." Gulbis fared better in the third set. He again had two break points while leading 3-2, but again failed to win the game. However, he didnt waste his chance two games later, breaking Djokovic to take a 5-3 lead before serving out the set with his 11th ace. The two traded breaks early in the fourth set, and Djokovic broke again to lead 5-3 when GGulbis, again double-faulting once in the game, sent a backhand long.dddddddddddd Djokovic won the last game at love. "It was a struggle out there," Gulbis said. "I felt maybe throughout the match I hit five really clean shots, from either side, backhand or forehand. Even serve." After nearly two weeks of overcast skies and cool temperatures, the sun was shining on centre court and Djokovic and Gulbis were more interested in staying cool than staying warm. Both players used ice wrapped in towels around their necks, like players often do at the sweltering Australian Open, as the temperature reached 28 degrees C (82 degrees F) on Friday. Djokovic is now 5-1 against Gulbis, a 25-year-old player who as a teen showed the potential for becoming a star. But Gulbis has said recently that he is only now playing his best tennis, and only because he has decided to leave the party lifestyle behind and focus on his sport. He certainly showed that at Roland Garros. Gulbis had reached the quarterfinals at a major only once before, and that was way back in 2008 at the French Open. In that match, he also lost to Djokovic, but in straight sets. This year, he eliminated 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer in the fourth round and sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals. "The more I play these kind of matches, the more Im going to get used to these situations," Gulbis said. "For me, I take only the positive stuff out of it. Yeah, I need to be in these situations once, twice, three times, and then I can maybe make that extra step." Djokovic, however, is playing even better. He has won three titles so far this season, and has beaten Nadal the last four times they have played, including on clay in the final in Rome last month.
