TORONTO -- Ontarios Liberal government admitted Tuesday that the original $113-million security tab for Torontos 2015 Pan Am Games was just a "place holder" number, and warned the latest estimate of $239 million could go higher. Preston Brown Bengals Jersey . The Toronto 2015 Pan Am organizing committee came up with the figure because they had to put something in the bid book that helped secure the international event for the city, said Tourism Minister Michael Chan. "The $113 million was presented a long time ago, in 2010, and it was a place holder because security has to be there," said Chan. "You probably will appreciate TO2015 doesnt have the skills, they dont have the expertise, they dont have any knowledge about security." Saad Rafi, who took over as the CEO of the TO2015 Pan Am organizing committee after Ian Troop was fired, said he wasnt involved when the citys bid was prepared and couldnt say where the $113 million estimate came from. Officials wouldnt have had a good handle on the number of athletes and coaches that would be coming or how many venues would be used and in what communities when they prepared the security estimate for the bid book, added Rafi. "I think a myriad of elements and factors go into generating an estimate of costs," he said. "If you want a more detailed answer Im afraid we couldnt give it because we werent there to submit the bid book." The Opposition demanded Chan resign or be fired after the security bill for next years Games more than doubled. "The minister and this government and TO2015 and everyone involved in these games doesnt have a clue whats going on," said Progressive Conservative critic Rod Jackson. "They cant answer a straight question in the House on this, and it seems like no cost is too high." Chan bristled at suggestions he should have known what the original $113 million estimate for security at the Games was based on. "I wasnt there," he said. "Do you really want to know why they had that number in there? Theres probably a reason for that." The $239-million tab for security will likely change before the Games start in July 2015, but could go down or up, added Chan. "Anybody who thinks that number will be stationary, will not move, I think that would be unreasonable because we still have a year and five months before the Games and lots of things can happen," he said. "And that number can go down if we control costs, or security may go up. This is the nature of the Games." Rafi announced the Games were on schedule and on budget so far, and admitted one of his biggest concerns was getting people interested in the Pan Am competitions. "We want to engage the public and create a sense of excitement which will drive their participation in festivals as well as the Games themselves," he said. "We want to make sure we can maximize our ticket revenue." The 2015 Pan Am Games will take place at 34 different competition venues across the Golden Horseshoe, from Niagara in the south to Orillia in the north, running from July 7 to 26, followed by the Parapan Am Games Aug. 7 to 15. The total budget for the Games is now estimated at $2.5 billion. Logan Woodside Jersey . Louis Cardinals are one of Major League Baseballs model franchises. Malik Jefferson Jersey . Canada will host Japan in a World Group first-round match in 2015.

Jay Cutler, Jordan Palmer and Jimmy Clausen threw touchdown passes to help Chicago beat the Philadelphia Eagles 34-28 on Friday night in the preseason opener for both teams. Cutler looked sharp in his brief stint. Palmer overcame an interception, and Clausen, the man he is fighting for the backup job, made a strong case, too. "I like the way (Palmer) brought the team back," coach Marc Trestman said. "He came back and moved the football team. And the same thing with Jimmy. I thought he moved the football team, was poised for a guy whos been here so little time. "I think we saw something there, as well, so that competition continues." It was a different story for Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles. The Bears rattled him early, intercepting two passes even though they were missing Jared Allen. The five-time Pro Bowl defensive end and prized free-agent acquisition missed practices this week because his wife gave birth to a girl. Tight end Martellus Bennett remained suspended by the Bears for his role in an altercation with cornerback Kyle Fuller at practice on Monday. Chicago also was missing right guard Kyle Long (ankle) and right tackle Jordan Mills (foot), but had no trouble moving the ball. Cutler made the most of his two possessions, completing 9 of 13 passes for 85 yards. Then, he watched both contenders for the backup job deliver solid performances. Palmer got the first shot and went 8 of 11 for 104 yards. He got hit attempting a deep pass to Chris Williams, resulting in an interception for Nate Allen, but redeemed himself late in the half with a touchdown pass. Clausen started the third quarter and threw for 150 yards and two touchdowns, including a 73-yarder to Williams along the right sideline. Later in the quarter, he connected with Michael Spurlock on a 22-yard scoring pass and hit Dante Rosario on the two-point conversion to put Chicago ahead 31-28. Zach Miller caught six passes for 68 yards, including touchdowns from Cutler and Palmer, and the Bears earned the win. For Foles, it was simply a brutal night. The quarterback who posted the NFLs highest passer rating and threw just two interceptions in 13 games last season coulddnt get in sync. Cordy Glenn Bengals Jersey. He wound up with 44 yards on 6-of-9 passing before Jets castoff Mark Sanchez took over. "We cant have the errors that we had to start the game on offence, whether it be the interceptions or the penalties," Foles said. "What preseason allows is an opportunity to clean it up. Thats what well do as a team. Well clean it up and well move forward." Sanchez was 7 for 10 for 79 yards against backups on defence. Matthew Tucker ran for 40 yards and two touchdowns before leaving with a hamstring injury. Josh Huff returned a kickoff 102 yards late in the first half to give the Eagles a 21-14 lead. Foles troubles started on the games first possession when he got pressured and threw the ball right to Chicagos Ryan Mundy, resulting in an easy interception for a player vying for time at safety. Cutler led the Bears on a 69-yard touchdown drive on their second possession, finishing it with a 10-yard strike to Miller to make it 7-0. Foles then had the Eagles threatening, but with the ball on the 32, a short pass intended for Zach Ertz got picked off by Sherrick McManis. Sanchez was decisive, on target and a big reason why the Eagles scored touchdowns on three straight possessions to take a 21-14 halftime lead. He led them on 53 and 51-yard scoring drives that ended with short runs by Tucker to put Philadelphia up 14-7. Palmer answered with a 12-yard TD to Miller to tie it with just over a minute left, but in a flash, the Eagles regained the lead. Huff returned the kickoff 102 yards untouched up the left sideline to put Philadelphia ahead 21-14 at the half. "Ive learned a lot from Coach Trestman about moving on, the inevitability of success and adversity -- its going to strike you," Palmer said. "For me, when something bad happens, you shake it off and move forward because you cant do anything about the last play." Notes: Philadelphias Jeremy Maclin had one 15-yard catch after missing last season with a torn ACL. ... Asked if Bennett will practice on Sunday, Trestman said, "It has not been decided." ... Trestman said safeties Chris Conte (shoulder) and Craig Steltz (groin) are "very close" to being cleared to practice -- possibly next week. Both are on the physically unable to perform list.
