Subiect: emainder of the season after un
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Jim Schwartz doesnt expect continuity to be an issue in his new job with the Buffalo Bills. Despite taking over as the teams fourth defensive co-ordinator in four years, Schwartz stressed he has no intention of making drastic changes to his predecessors aggressive approach that made the Bills one of the NFLs most feared pass-rushing teams last season. "Were an attack scheme. Its a scheme built on the guys up front getting after the quarterback," Schwartz said during his introductory news conference on Monday. "Well be fast. Well be physical. We want to attack. ... Theres going to be a lot of defensive lineman that are real happy to play in a system like that." That should make Mario Williams, one of Buffalos three returning Pro Bowl defensive linemen, breathe a little easier. Schwartz is happy, too. A month after being fired as the Detroit Lions head coach, Schwartzs decision to bide his time before making his next move paid off in landing a job he considers to be an ideal fit. "You want to be very careful about your next opportunity, and I didnt step into this lightly," he said. "Theres a tremendous opportunity with the players that are in place." Schwartz replaces Mike Pettine, who left Buffalo after only one season to take over as the Cleveland Browns head coach. Pettines departure last week was unexpected and had the potential of undercutting whatever carry-over the Bills were seeking to build on following a 6-10 finish. Though the Bills struggled against the run, their defence finished 10th in the NFL in yards allowed — Buffalos best ranking since a second-place finish in 2004. And Buffalo finished second in the league with a franchise-record 57 sacks. Once Pettine indicated he was accepting the Browns position, Bills coach Doug Marrone wasted little time targeting Schwartz. At the same time Pettine completing his deal in Cleveland on Thursday, Marrone and members of the Bills front office travelled to interview Schwartz for the job before reaching a deal a day later. "When youre looking to hire defensive co-ordinators, you want to look at people that you dont like going against their defence," Marrone said. "Jims defences have always been very tough, very difficult to run on, very difficult to score on." Schwartz has 20 years of coaching experience including an eight-year stint as the Tennessee Titans defensive co-ordinator from 2001-08. The Titans defence three times finished among the NFLs top 10 in fewest yards allowed. Tennessee was particularly stingy in stopping the run, finishing sixth or better in yards rushing allowed, including a first-place ranking in 2003. Schwartz was inconsistent during five seasons in Detroit. He went 29-51, including a 10-6 finish in 2011 in which the Lions snapped a 12-year playoff drought. In Buffalo, Schwartzs immediate priority will be filling out his defensive staff. Marrone said four Bills defensive assistants are expected to join Pettine in Cleveland. The group includes linebackers coach Jim ONeil, who is expected to take over as Browns defensive co-ordinator, and defensive line coach Anthony Weaver. Marrone also expected to lose defensive quality control coach Brian Fleury and newly hired assistant Jeff Hafley. Veteran defensive backs coach Donnie Henderson is staying in Buffalo. Schwartzs defensive approach is rooted in a 4-3 system with some similarities to Pettines philosophy particularly when it comes to generating pressure off the edges. Schwartz intends to spend the next few months adapting his defence to the strengths of his personnel. "Theres going to be some carry-over. Theres going to be some things that well wind up changing because we think its in our best long-term benefit," Schwartz said. "Were not going to be so complicated that they cant pick things up. Whatever we keep, whatever we decide to change, there will be a reason behind it."

Making his third start since replacing Tim Lincecum in the rotation, Petit (5-3) faced just two more than the minimum and matched his season high of nine strikeouts. The right-hander needed only 84 pitches to finish the gem, the fewest in a nine-inning complete game by any pitcher in the majors this season. Petit, who threw 26 first-pitch strikes, came within one out of a perfect game against the Diamondbacks on Sept. 6, 2013. Leadoff hitter Angel Pagan had four hits and scored twice. Joe Panik went 5 for 5 and Gregor Blanco added two singles to help San Francisco win its seventh straight home game. Overall, the Giants have won 10 of 13. Ender Inciarte homered leading off the fourth to end Arizonas seven-game homerless drought, but manager Kirk Gibsons club managed only three hits the rest of the way. The Diamondbacks have lost four straight. The Giants stranded seven runners in the first three innings but took advantage of control problems by starter Wade Miley (7-11) Andrew Susac drew a bases-loaded walk in the first inning and Pablo Sandoval did the same thing in the second. Pagan scored both times. Buster Posey also drove in a run in the second when Diamondbacks first baseman Mark Trumbo couldnt handle a bounced throw from shortstop Didi Grregorius, who was trying to complete a double play.dddddddddddd. Miley, winless since July 30, gave up three runs and five hits in two innings. He walked four and struck out one. Gregor Blanco singled and scored on an error by Inciarte in left field. Posey added a sacrifice fly to make it 5-0. Petit did the rest in his best start since his near-miss against Arizona a year ago. He retired his first nine hitters — five by strikeout — before Inciarte went deep. The ball landed in McCovey Cove, the 101st splash hit since AT&T Park opened in 2000. Petit also singled in the second — his first hit of the season — and scored on Poseys grounder.
