VANCOUVER -- Peter Schmeichel left a mark on an entire generation of goalkeepers in Denmark. Russell Bodine Bills Jersey . A larger-than-life personality known for his intimidating style in the 18-yard box, Schmeichels career spanned some 20 years -- including a memorable tenure at Manchester United. Vancouver Whitecaps goalkeeper David Ousted was one of the young Danes who took notice of the man who played a record 129 times for his country. "He was definitely a big influence because a couple years in a row there he was the best keeper in the world," Ousted said this week. "I was impressed with the saves he made, but also the presence he had when he was playing. "I think like every other Danish goalkeeper, you grew up watching him." But the 29-year-old Ousted is carving out his own story and style in Vancouver, far from where the fiery Schmeichel patrolled the pitches in Europe. "He doesnt play like (Schmeichel) and doesnt have his personality," Whitecaps goalkeeper coach Marius Rovde with a chuckle. "So he has nothing thats like him except for his (blonde) hair. "Maybe hes crazy in different ways." Ousted joined the Whitecaps in June 2013 on a free transfer from Denmarks Randers FC and hasnt looked back, shooting up the depth chart last season once he arrived to grab the starters role ahead of Brad Knighton and the aging Joe Cannon -- neither of whom are still with the club. He has helped Vancouver (1-0-2) to an undefeated start to the 2014 campaign, including his first clean sheet of the season last weekend in a 0-0 road draw against the New England Revolution. "David, since the time hes been here, has been very professional," said Whitecaps captain Jay DeMerit. "His drive and his comfort level has always been here and always been high, but I think hes just getting used to playing with his defenders, hes getting used to playing in this league and I think hes getting better and better. "You want him to keep us in it and make big saves when called upon. Hes definitely done that for us this season." It wasnt exactly a smooth transition early on, however. Ousted started his Major League Soccer career with 1-1 draw against the Portland Timbers last August before following that up a week later with a 2-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes. What followed was a couple of shaky outings that had some questioning if he was the right fit in Vancouver. Rovde pushed hard for the club to sign the six-foot-four 195-pound goalkeeper and wasnt put off by a 0-3-2 string that included eight goals against. "Youre coming to a new league and sometimes in this league, things happen that dont in other leagues -- defenders make mistakes or they dont pressure as hard," said Rovde. "You suddenly get free shots from 18, 20 yards that youre not used to. "If youre going to play well in this league, youre going to have to expect the unexpected as a goalkeeper." There was no doubt in Rovdes mind that Ousted was Vancouvers goalkeeper of the present and future. "I expected him to go straight in and be a starter because he has played bigger games than you can play in MLS," said Rovde. "He has played against FC Copenhagen, had clean sheets against them in front of 40,000 fans. He has played those big games. There wasnt any reason to wait." Ousted -- who now has five clean sheets in 16 career starts with Vancouver -- said it took some time to get adjusted not only to a new league, but a new continent. "I definitely feel more acclimatized. Im settled here now. I know the league a little bit better," said Ousted, who stayed behind in Vancouver for extra off-season work after the Whitecaps missed the playoffs in 2013. "Both the style of play and the players here are a little bit different. You have to get used to it, get used to the whole thing with the travel and the different venues. "Maybe it took a little while longer for me than I thought it would but I feel like Im getting used to it now and hopefully I can continue playing well." The Whitecaps have had no complaints about his play so far in 2014. Ousted made a big save early in the clubs season-opening 4-1 home win over the New York Red Bulls and was responsible for saving points the last two weekends on the road -- a 1-1 draw with Chivas USA and that scoreless final in New England. "Even last year when there was one or two little criticisms against him for goals going in, David has remained a top keeper," said rookie Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson. "His work ethic is fantastic. Hes a great guy off the field. Yes he has saved us a point or two now in the last couple of games, but hes the same keeper as he was against New York and hes the same keeper today." Working with Ousted from the centre of defence, DeMerit has noticed more of a take-charge attitude so far in the young season, which continues Saturday at home against the Houston Dynamo (2-0-0). "I think hell continue to be a leader back there for us because he needs to be," said DeMerit. "Down the spine of our team, thats where the leadership needs to come from." Added Ousted: "Its a big part of my game and something that Im trying to develop even more -- being the guy they can rely on and the guy whos taking responsibility. "I was glad that the club put their confidence in me and I still am. Im still working hard to try and repay that confidence." Chris Ivory Bills Jersey . According to a report from ESPN, sources said Manuels college coach Jimbo Fisher told teams he didnt think Manuel had the tools to be an NFL starter. Marshall Newhouse Bills Jersey . Onyshko, from Minnedosa, Man., will compete in artistic gymnastics while Hanet, from Kelowna, B.C., will compete in lawn bowling as a para-athlete. "It is exciting that our Canadian athletes are starting to arrive at the Games Village," said Chantal Petitclerc, Canadas Chef de Mission. http://www.shoptheofficialbills.com/Elite-Eddie-Yarbrough-Bills-Jersey/ . Englands only win in the four most recent trips north had been tight, and Scotland was expected after losing 28-6 to Ireland six days ago to show some venom against its archrival.Buffalo Bills have confirmed that first-round draft pick Shaq Lawson will require shoulder surgery, suggesting he might not be ready until the middle of the regular season. Shaq Lawson exclusive Sky Sports Digital spoke to the Clemson man Coupled with wide receiver Sammy Watkins broken foot, the Bills have had a troubling start to the off-season, and in a draft full of high-calibre defensive linemen, their draft selections have been called into question.The Cowboys signing of Jaylon Smith in the second round, despite the likelihood that he will miss the entire 2016 season and the news that Jacksonville Jaguars first-round pick Jalen Ramsey may require micro-fracture surgery are indicative of the gamble franchises must take to kick-start their campaign for a Super Bowl ring. Injuries can break even the most promising of NFL teams, even before the season has started, Sky Sports takes a look at some of the recent examples.Philadelphia Eagles, 2005The previous season was a demonstration of what a powerhouse NFL franchise should look like. Having won the division the past three years, 2004 saw the Eagles continue to dominate and go 13-3, sweeping NFC East division rivals 6-0 in the regular season. The Eagles marched to the Super Bowl, where they were narrowly beaten by the Patriots 24-21. Quarterback Donovan McNabb and the Philadelphia Eagles looked set for a stellar 2005 Although defensive linemen Derrick Burgess and Corey Simon departed Philadelphia that summer, hopes were still high for the Birdgang.The team started well, winning three of their first four. However, a succession of injuries derailed the team. Of the 10 Pro Bowlers the Eagles had in 2004, five sustained season-ending injuries, including quarterback Donovan McNabb, running back Brian Westbrook and offensive tackle Tra Thomas.Four other players had their season cut short through injury, and both kicker David Akers (another 2004 Pro Bowler) and punter Dirk Johnson spent considerable time on the sidelines.Coupled with the injuries, off-field distractions ripped through the organisation. While Carl Westbrook was holding out for a new contract, Pro Bowl wide receiver Terrell Owens caused the Eagles no end of headaches. Terrell Owens caused the Eagles no end of issues From contract disputes to being denied an opportunity to play summer league basketball with the Sacramento Kings, Owens spoke publicly about his poor relationship with the classless Eagles. His public falling-out with quarterback McNabb only exacerbated the situation, and Owens was suspended for four games, and then deactivated for the remaining five.The Eagles finished the season 6-10, losing four of the last five, and finishing bottom of their division. Owens was cut, and the team went back to a double-digit winning season the following year. NFL Draft: Behind the scenes Richard Graves diary from Chicago Indianapolis Colts, 2011The 2011 season was all set for the Colts. After two consecutive AFC South Championships, the franchise was also looking to set the record for the most consecutive playoff appearances (10). Furthermore, if successful, they would be the first team to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium. Peyton Mannings final season in Indianapolis did not go as expected However, the season spiraled out of control for the Colts before it got going. Having used the franchise tag on Peyton Manning, the quarterback had to have neck surgery before the season started, and sat out the entire season.Turning to back-ups Kerry Collins and then Curtis Painter was disastrous, as the Colts went 2-14, their worst regular season record since 1991. Vontae Davis Bills Jersey. The vice-president, general manager and head coach were all fired and Manning was released.The Colts did win the following years first pick, replacing Manning with Andrew Luck. Three double-digit winning seasons followed, but the promise of the 2011 campaign will always be a what-if story.Dallas Cowboys, 2015 Tony Romos injury problems hindered the Cowboys all season Building a complete team for the push to Super Bowl glory is no mean feat, but in 2015, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett must have thought he was close. With a defence that boasted Tyron Smith, Orlando Scandrick, Randy Gregory and Greg Hardy, and an offensive duo of Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, Dallas appeared ready to compete.The season started brightly, with the Cowboys winning their first two games. However, injuries to quarterback Romo and wide receiver Bryant in Week Two saw the franchise collapse. The team lost the next seven. Romo returned to lead the Cowboys to victory over the Dolphins in Week 11 but suffered another collarbone injury in Week 12 and didnt feature again that season.Inept quarterback options underpinned a disastrous season, with Matt Cassel the only back-up to produce a win in Romos absence. The franchise slumped to a 4-12 finish, the Cowboys worst season since 1989. Draft Pick Six Neil Reynolds on the key stories to emerge from Draft Day New England Patriots, 2015This one sneaks in, not so much for the derailment of the season, but what could have been. The Patriots, in the twilight of their dynasty era, were favourites to retain the Super Bowl and potentially go undefeated.By the middle of November, all was going to plan. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick were 10-0 and on the home straight. However, cracks were beginning to show, with injuries all over the field.Nate Solder, Bryan Stork, Jamie Collins and Donta Hightower all missed chunks of the season, as well as offensive weapons Dion Lewis, Julian Edelman and LeGarrette Blount. Julian Edelmans absence, along with a host of other key men, arguably cost New England a place in Super Bowl 50 With the roster thinning as the Patriots edged towards January, the franchise lost four of its remaining six games, including two that went to overtime.The Patriots lost to Denver in the AFC Championship game, the Broncos going on to win Super Bowl 50. It is a fruitless exercise to say whether a full-strength Patriots team would have progressed, but injuries to their blue-chip talent certainly played a part in New Englands Super Bowl push.Hope springs eternal Kurt Warner was a man to benefit from injury, will 2016 open a door for anyone else? However, its not all doom and gloom. Injuries present opportunities for fringe players to get their chance and have acted as springboards for Hall of Fame careers.In 1999, Trent Green was the lynchpin of the St Louis Rams offense. When the quarterback tore knee ligaments during pre-season, the Rams were forced to rely on undrafted free agent Kurt Warner. Warner, who spent time in the Arena League as well as in Europe with the Amsterdam Admirals, led the Rams to Super Bowl victory, their only appearance to date.In 2001, the New England Patriots thought their season was over in Week Two, when Drew Bledsoe suffered concussion and internal injuries following a monster hit by Mo Lewis. In stepped sixth-round pick and future Hall of Famer Tom Brady, who led the franchise to the first of his four Super Bowl rings.Bills fans might hold on to these examples, in the hope that their 16-year wait for playoff football, the longest active drought in the NFL, is almost over.
