WENGEN, Switzerland -- Erik Guay of Mont-Tremblant, Que., came close to the podium in the classic Wengen downhill on Saturday when he finished fourth after a superb run on the most physically demanding track on downhill skiings World Cup tour. Guay, the reigning world downhill champion, produced a smooth and strong performance on the legendary Lauberhorn course, which spans 4.415 kilometres and was lightning-fast Saturday -- with Frances Johan Clarey setting a new speed record of 161.9 kilometres per hour. Although Guay has had a number of fourth-place finishes in his career -- most famously at the 2006 Olympics in Italy and the 2007 world championships in Sweden -- he was happy with what is a career-best result in the Swiss downhill. Guays teammate Ben Thomsen, of Invermere, B.C., was 12th and Calgarys Jan Hudec was 16th as the Canadians put together a solid team performance. "Im pretty satisfied with this," said Guay, who finished in two minutes 30.97 seconds. "You always want the podium when you are fourth but my best previous result here was when I was eighth last year. I had a good, solid run and I skied really well." Guay was 1.15 seconds back of Italys Christof Innerhofer, the eventual winner. Austrias Klaus Kroell, who started 21st, knocked Guay out of a podium position and finished second in 2:30.12. His teammate, Hannes Reichelt, was third in 2:30.58. Norways Aksel Lund Svindal, who did not finish his run, still leads the overall World Cup downhill standings with 285 points, ahead of Innerhofer (233) and Kroell (221). Guay is seventh with 173 points. Guay, who has 18 career World Cup podiums after finishing third in Val Gardena, Italy, in December, will go into next weeks legendary Kitzbuhel downhill in Austria full of confidence after another impressive showing. "This part of the year is extremely important," Guay said. "Im satisfied with how I skied and I want to bring that into the Hahnenkamm." Thomsen, who has been steadily improving after a slow start to his 2012-13 season, produced a strong run on a course that doesnt suit his skill set. "Wengen is definitely not a track for me. You saw that at the top when I was about a second out," said Thomsen, who crossed the line in 2:31.51. "Ive been working hard on my gliding but I need to keep working on it. Im really happy with the way the rest of the run went. I stuck to my guns and pushed to the limit." Hudec skied extremely well in the top section but lost time in the middle of the leg-burning course. "The top split was amazing," said Hudec, who was second-fastest in the first interval and clocked a total time of 2:31.90. "I need to figure out how to ski the rest of the course 100 per cent. Im not completely risking everything and thats where Im losing a little bit of time here and there. I (lost) a bunch of time in the middle section." Hudec has been hampered by a knee injury this season but worked hard in the gym during a break in the schedule and is starting to feel stronger. "Its always a leg-burner here but I definitely felt way better than I did in Bormio," Hudec said. Vancouvers Manuel Osborne-Paradis was forced to restart his run when the racer in front of him went out and he was shown the yellow flag. In his second run he skied off course and did not finish. Calgarys John Kucera was 47th with a time of 2:37.07. Jermaine Kearse Super Bowl Jersey .

It seems that over the second half of the season, the line between what constitutes a tough player and a dirty one has become blurred.BEREA, Ohio -- Brandon Weeden showered and dressed alone in one corner of Clevelands locker room. A day after his brutal performance in Green Bay, he was still a starting quarterback. Barely. And a shaky one at that. Weedens job has never been more instable after Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Monday that hes considering a change at quarterback and could start backup Jason Campbell this week against the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs. Chudzinski planned to discuss a possible switch with his staff, and didnt seem to be leaning in either direction. "Well basically put the guys at all positions wholl give us the best opportunity to win," Chudzinski said. Weedens second straight poor outing has Cleveland fans clamouring for a change, but Chudzinski noted there are other problems -- penalties, defensive breakdowns and dropped passes among them -- to fix or the Browns (3-4) will be in danger of letting a once promising season slip away. Making his fourth start this season, Weeden completed just 17 of 42 passes for 149 yards with a touchdown and interception against the Packers. He made some common mistakes: locking on to receivers, forcing passes into tight coverage and trying another ill-advised underhanded flip in the fourth quarter. It wasnt pretty, but unlike last week, when Chudzinski effusively supported Weeden following a loss at home to Detroit, the coach was more noncommittal. "Its not all Brandon and thats the first thing you have to look at as you look at the tape and see," Chudzinski said. "Theres some execution errors and issues with other guys. Brandon needs to play better, but we all need to play better around him. Well go through that process, talking about that, and come up with the plan that gives us the best chance to win." Weeden only returned to the starting lineup two weeks ago after Brian Hoyer, who led the Browns to wins over Minnesota and Cincinnati, suffered a season-ending knee injury on Oct. 3 agaainst Buffalo.dddddddddddd Weeden came off the bench and rallied the Browns to a victory over the Bills, and the 30-year-old seemed to finally have some momentum in his second NFL season. But hes lost it all in the past two games, and linebacker DQwell Jackson believes Weeden has been shaken by the pressure. "Id be lying if I said he wasnt," Jackson said. "Im pretty sure he is. You try to block out the noise and cant avoid it. It comes with the territory. It comes with being in this league. Its a big-boy league. Youve got to take the good with the bad. People are going to love him when he plays well and people are going to try to run him out of Cleveland if he doesnt. "And that goes for all of us. It comes with the territory, especially playing in Cleveland." An hour after Chudzinskis news conference, a national report said the Browns will stick with Weeden. However, a team spokesman said "the truth" was that Chudzinski had not yet decided on his quarterback situation. Despite Weedens ragged play, Chudzinski still feels the second-year QB has the backing of his teammates, who understand that they all need to play better. "I think that our guys are looking at themselves, and we have plenty of places and plenty of opportunity to get better," he said. "By no means is it one guy, and it certainly wasnt a perfect game by anybody. Those guys know and I can guarantee that were going to put the best guys out there and the guys that give us the best chance to win. Thats what well always do." Weeden does have the support of several teammates. Tight end Jordan Cameron said hell abide by whatever decision is made, but that he trusts Weeden. "I have confidence in Brandon, 100 per cent confidence," he said. "Hes a tough guy. Hell hang in there, and whoever they pick will be ready to play. I just have confidence in whoever they choose and Im backing whatever their decision is." ' ' '
