Last years grand finalists West Coast risk missing the AFL finals if they dont find form quickly after suffering an upset 19-point loss to Collingwood.The Eagles, faced with a challenging run to September, desperately needed to bank four premiership points at the MCG on Saturday.Instead, they were outplayed by a side out of the finals equation, and were thumped 47-28 in clearances and beaten 13.13 (91) to 11.6 (72).West Coast now confront Fremantle, Greater Western Sydney, Hawthorn and Adelaide.They are unlikely to slip outside the top eight but, as coach Adam Simpson points out, thats far from impossible.Every game is big for us. Were still fighting for a top-eight spot, Simpson said.We will have to rely on other sides (if the Eagles keep losing).We need to keep winning. Otherwise, whats the point?Its not a lost cause ... weve got to be confident, got to be optimistic.But theres also the sense of reality, too, so weve got to work our way through it.Saturdays result was all the more remarkable because Collingwood forward Darcy Moore - arguably best on ground in the first two quarters - hurt his hamstring and played no part in the second half.Collingwood were simply too hard and too desperate, headlined by a club-record tally of 119 tackles.Our ability to not give up and still fight for the season has got to be as strong as it ever has, Simpson said.Were probably more concentrating on our mindset ... rather than ladder position.Were still very much alive but weve got to get our heads around what we need to work on.That list is reasonably long.Simpson lamented the way his charges folded at critical moments, easy goals from stoppages and how fragile the Eagles looked in early defence.Ruckman Nic Naitanui was sorely missed, with Brodie Grundy helping himself to 45 hitouts.Simpson was upbeat Naitanui would return from injury against the Dockers.We cant rely on one guy, Simpson said.Hes a good player and he will help us ... but we had 22 players out there.The Eagles trailed for most of the match but regained the lead early in the fourth term, when Jamie Cripps converted his set shot from a tight angle.The hosts response was overwhelming.Collingwood made a mockery of the low-scoring game, piling on four goals in the space of eight minutes.We didnt use the ball well at all but we were able to play the way we wanted to play long enough to get the job done, Magpies coach Nathan Buckley said.Taylor Adams and Scott Pendlebury tallied a combined 70 possessions, 24 tackles and 15 clearances for the hosts. Brett Favre Super Bowl Jersey . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. Jamaal Williams Super Bowl Jersey . It was the kind of score that might make everyone else wonder which course he was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole thing. Crouched behind the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked over at the powerful American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives Ive seen all year in the last two days. http://www.shoptheofficialpackers.com/Elite-Dexter-Williams-Packers-Jersey/ .Y. - Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has earned NHL first star of the week honours after winning in his first three appearances of the season.
