. -- The San Francisco 49ers have added another quarterback to the competition to be Colin Kaepernicks backup, signing nine-year veteran Seneca Wallace to a one-year contract Thursday. While Colt McCoy had appeared to be the favourite to win the No. 2 job coming into training camp, neither he nor Scott Tolzien have separated themselves. Even rookie B.J. Daniels has been deemed a contender, though clearly Wallace now will get a chance with little time to prepare before the Sept. 8 season opener against Green Bay. 49ers offensive co-ordinator Greg Roman said this week that Sundays game against Minnesota would be important for all of the quarterbacks. "I think its going to be a big game for them, big game for all of us," Roman said. "But, I think they just need to improve really down-in, down-out consistency. The right reads, obviously making the right throws. Theyve done some really good stuff up til now, stuff thats under-the-radar type things. Again, theyve had some plays that theyd love to do over again. So, its a matter of coming out this week and having a really strong performance." Wallace, who was competing with Luke McCown to back up Drew Brees in New Orleans, had his contract terminated by the Saints on Monday. Coach Jim Harbaugh said Wednesday that McCoy likely would play second after Kaepernicks stint is done in Sunday nights exhibition against Minnesota at Candlestick Park. McCoy, Tolzien and Daniels each have been getting regular repetitions in practice with the No. 2 offence, Harbaugh said. He isnt against giving a rookie the backup quarterback job, which Kaepernick had behind Alex Smith after being drafted in the second round from Nevada in 2011. "Yes, its OK. How that plays out, we will see," Harbaugh said. "Its OK for a veteran to be the backup." McCoy hasnt looked sharp or comfortable this preseason, and it appears he is still trying to find his way in Harbaughs expansive offence. He has completed 6 of 13 passes for 76 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions while also getting sacked once. "Definitely, its a factor," Harbaugh said of transitioning to a new team. "I dont know if its a percentage that youre looking for. Is it a percentage youre looking for or how much? Its definitely a factor, and the good improvement this week, hes working at it very hard, it means a lot to him and it does to us, too. Were coaching him up the best we can and well keep striving for improvement each day." San Francisco waived wideout Ricardo Lockette, who worked out with Kaepernick in Atlanta for a stretch this off-season along with departed A.J. Jenkins. Also Thursday, when the players had a scheduled day off, San Francisco placed safety Darcel McBath on season-ending injured reserve and claimed linebacker Joe Holland off waivers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Holland originally signed with San Francisco last season as an undrafted free agent before being cut Aug. 31 ahead of the season. McBath was a regular on special teams last season for the NFC champion Niners, appearing in all 16 games. Cheap Basketball Shoes Sale

.com) - The New York Rangers hope to punch their ticket to the second round when they visit the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday for a Game 6 battle at Wells Fargo Center.EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- With six losses on their resume, the New York Giants could have been wondering if they would ever win a game this season. Instead, they searched within to see what they are made of. "The players and coaches have great pride in what were doing," Eli Manning said Monday night after -- at last -- the teams first victory, 23-7 over the Minnesota Vikings. "We just had to keep going, get rid of some of the mistakes, and play the way we need to play." They were efficient, if not overwhelming, which is all they needed to be against the mistake-prone Vikings (1-5). The Giants began the season as the team turning over the ball (minus-16 difference) while showing little penchant for playing defence. But against the Vikings, they had three takeaways to one lost fumble. Peterson, the leagues MVP last season and a 2,000-yard rusher, was held to 28 yards five days after his 2-year-old son was buried in South Dakota. The man accused in the death was indicted on second-degree murder and manslaughter charges, prosecutors said Monday. "It was tough sledding. We couldnt get anything established up front," Peterson said. "I was focused on preparing for the game, unfortunately it didnt work out the way we wanted to. It was tough. The defence made it hard." Peterson was not helped by a rusty Josh Freeman, making his debut as Vikings quarterback after being signed as a free agent when Tampa Bay cut the 2009 first-round draft pick. Freeman frequently missed open receivers, and several of his throws sailed yards beyond his targets. Coach Leslie Frazier said he considered taking out Freeman, but that the score was close enough for him to stick with his new QB. Josh Brown kicked three field goals and Rueben Randle caught a 24-yard TD pass for New York (1-6). "For us, we cant look too much past a win and a step in the right direction," defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins said. "We cant look beyond the next step." Marcus Sherels provided Minnesotas points with an 86-yard punt return, but his fumble without being hit during a runback midway in the third quarter set up New York at the Vikings 3. Peyton Hillis, signed last Wednesday with the Giants in dire need of running backs, surged in from the 1 for a 17-7 lead -- New Yorks biggest in 2013. The lead grew on Browns 23-yard field goal to finish off a 16-play, 75-yard drive, and to 23-7 on his 36-yarder.dddddddddddd Another Vikings mistake handed those points to the Giants: Rookie Sharrif Floyd, a defensive tackle of all things, fumbled at Minnesotas 18 while returning a short kickoff. "We needed to get one on the board," defensive end Justin Tuck said. "I told (general manager) Jerry Reese that I think we have a shovel to start digging our way out of this hole. Hopefully, tonight is something we can build off. Its still a long way to climb out of this hole. But this was something that we could get the ball rolling." The Giants controlled the clock and the ball for most of the opening quarter and led 3-0 when Sherels broke his spectacular punt return -- the third against the Giants this season. He sped down the left sideline virtually untouched, then twice faked out punter Steve Weatherford. By the time Weatherford reached Sherels, it was at the goal line -- where Weatherford brought him down with a horse-collar tackle. Minnesota had a total of 8 yards on punt runbacks heading into Monday night. But Sherels set a team mark with 119. Before Sherels sprint, New York had gone 17 plays and used up the first 9:36, but bogged down at the 16 and Brown made a 35-yard field goal. And one play after Minnesota hurt itself on rookie Xavier Rhodes 23-yard pass interference penalty, Manning threw a laser to a leaping Randle in the left corner of the end zone for a 10-7 lead. It was the first time New York led at halftime all season. The defence held Peterson to 9 yards rushing on eight carries, and he didnt do much more in the second half. Manning, who led the league with 15 interceptions, didnt throw one for the first time all season. And while Freeman was picked only one time, by Antrel Rolle, he looked like someone who hadnt played in more than a month. "A lot of the plays were just a hair off," Freeman said. Freeman finished 20 of 53 for 190 yards. Manning was 23 for 39 for 200 yards.
