EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Eskimos enjoyed a brief moment in the sun following just their second win of the season Saturday over Winnipeg. Nike NFL Jerseys Online . Then they were back on the field Monday with the realization that the victory might mean more pressure than relief. "If we lose the rest of the season this one win means nothing," said defensive end Odell Willis. "We have a long way to go and we still have to put things together and keep climbing." The 25-7 win snapped an eight-game losing streak and had the 2-9 Edmonton players thinking of the playoffs. After Montreal lost to the B.C. Lions on the weekend the Alouettes, third in the CFL Eastern Division, are just two wins ahead of the Eskimos in a cross-over scenario. The key now, said defensive back T.J. Hill, is to build momentum and follow up with a repeat performance Friday in Winnipeg in the rematch with the 2-9 Blue Bombers. "We know this game is going to be even harder," Hill said. "Its tough to beat a team twice, let alone two times in a row, week to week. We know its going to be difficult going into a hostile environment and theyre going to try to redeem themselves. We definitely have to be prepared mentally and physically." Hill, second on the Eskimos in tackles with 51, said the win at home will give the team some momentum heading to Winnipeg. More than anything, however, there was a huge sigh of relief among the Eskimos. "Oh, definitely, it was a long time coming since we had a win," Hill said. "There was that enjoyment of a win after the game. Any time you have a win, even when you do some things wrong, theres a feeling of relief, but we know we still have to improve, get better." Thats not always easy. The feeling after a loss is that you have to work harder and improve, but after a win there can be a false sense that you dont have to get any better. So now the pressure is on the Eskimos to find a way to win back-to-back games. The Bombers came into Edmonton on a high after upsetting the No. 1 ranked Saskatchewan Roughriders but found out quickly that they couldnt maintain the same intensity against the Eskimos. Hill said the key to consistency is in extra preparation. "You try to dig a little deeper and go a little harder," he said. "The same preparation but just put a little extra into it, try to go that extra six inches, that extra weight in the weight room, extra five or 10 minutes in the meeting room, extra couple of reps in practice. Same preparation but just extend it a bit more. That way you better yourself in all aspects, mentally and physically." Willis said it was business as usual after the win, but hes on the defence that has been much better than the offence all season. The Esks defence has given up just 29 points in the last two games and has 12 quarterback sacks in the last three. "Thats the expectation we have for this D line and the defence," said Willis, who is tied for the team lead with five sacks and two forced fumbles. "It took a while to jell and get it going, but now that its going I expect nothing less from me or the rest of the D line." The Eskimos released two import players Monday: defensive end Nekos Brown and offensive lineman Branden Curry.

Nike NFL Jerseys Black Friday .com) - Delon Wright made all 12 of his free throws and finished with 21 points and six assists as No. http://www.authenticnflfansclub.com/ . -- With his team down 16 points in the second quarter and headed for another blowout loss at home, Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson yelled out to his players to keep shooting and keep fighting on defence.PARIS -- France coach Didier Deschamps has left Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri out of the squad of 23 players he plans to take to the World Cup. Monaco centerback Eric Abidal, Manchester City leftback Gael Clichy and Lyon playmaker Yoann Gourcuff were also overlooked. "Its not necessarily the 23 best French players, but its the best squad in my eyes to go as far as possible in this competition," Deschamps said. "The best solution was to give a list of 23 players right from the start, to create a good mindset, so there would be no sense of insecurity. "When you give a list of 30 players, you have about 15 players who could be worried about making the cut or not." Deschamps, who also named seven players on standby in case of injuries, doesnt need to communicate his 23-man squad to FIFA until June 2. Deschamps captained France to glory at the 1998 World Cup and the 2000 European Championship. He became the national coach in 2012. Nasri scored seven goals and had seven assists in the Premier League this season. But it was not enough to convince Deschamps. "Samirs performances with the France team were not at the level of his performances with his club," Deschamps said. "Hes an important player and a regular starter at Manchester City. Thats not the case today with the France team. "And he also said hes not happy when hes a substitute. I can tell you that you can feel it in the squad. Because of those two or three reasons, I decided not to select him in this squad." Nasri was hit with a three-match ban by the French Football Federation for his behaviour at the 2012 European Championship in Poland and Ukraine, where he aimed an expletive-laced tirade at a journalist after a 2-0 quarterfinal loss to Spain. The exclusion of Abidal and Gourcuff from the list was less surprising. Abidal proved a key player when France was the runner-up at the 2006 World Cup but he has lost his starting spot at Monaco in the past few of months, while Gourcuff had an injury-plagued season. "At the human level, living together for such a long time with players who have strong characters and personalities requires harmony and an ability to live together and make the common interest prevail," Deschamps said. Nike NFL Jerseys. The entire France squad went on strike four years ago to protest the expulsion of Nicolas Anelka, who had insulted then coach Raymond Domenech during a 2-0 loss to Mexico at the World Cup in South Africa. The French federation punished Anelka and three players for their role in the mutiny. Anelka received an 18-match ban while Patrice Evra was suspended for five games, Franck Ribery for three and Jeremy Toulalan for a single match. "I dont pretend that nothing will happen," Deschamps said. "Things could happen, things will happen, but I hope it will be positive things." Deschamps will especially rely on Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery and Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba to go through the group stage. France will open its World Cup campaign against Honduras on June 15 before facing Switzerland and Ecuador in Group E. Les Bleus will warm up for the tournament in Brazil by playing against Norway, Paraguay and Jamaica in friendlies. -------- Squad: Goalkeepers: Mickael Landreau (Bastia), Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), Steve Mandanda (Marseille).
