Jones did a pretty decent Roethlisberger impression against the Cardinals while throwing a pair of touchdowns in a 25-13 win. The cartilage in Ben Roethlisberger's aching left knee is repaired.

We still got the win. That was big for us. "We've played golf together many, many times and I've always had a good time with him".

Merritt will be facing Marco Estrada in Game 5 after the Blue Jays' righty tossed a complete game in Game 1 of the ALCS but was saddled with a loss. Finally, they could relax a little.

We can thank Liverpool for denying us from about 55 minutes of action the way Louis van Gaal used to do previous year, effectively giving either side around 17 minutes to score in the match. And there have been many times when United have shown respect to a Liverpool team. "But as a team it is a bit more hard, so we knew it was going to take a bit of time".

A team has to survive the grind of an 80-game regular-season schedule and then win 16 playoff games. It's well-worn territory to be sure for a player who missed the better parts of two seasons following a blindside hit to the head in January 2011. The timing is eerie when it comes to the level of Crosby's play.
