    ALAMEDA, Calif. Cheap Milwaukee Bucks Jerseys . -- The San Francisco 49ers came out of the bye defensively the same way they went into it: allowing far too many big plays and points in yet another loss.Despite having a defense on pace to be one of the most porous ever in the NFL, San Francisco 49ers coach Chip Kelly sees no reason to make a change at coordinator and get a replacement for Jim ONeil.I dont think theres one person responsible for what has transpired on the defensive side of the ball, Kelly said Monday. I think theres all of us have contributed to that.There has been plenty of bad on the defensive side of the ball so far for the 49ers (1-7) as evidenced in the play in the teams seventh straight loss, a 41-23 defeat to New Orleans on Sunday.The Saints gained 571 yards with 248 on the ground and 323 in the air, converted 11 of 17 third downs and met little resistance from a defense that has been unable to slow down anyone since opening the season with a 28-0 win over the Rams.After allowing 513 yards to Tampa Bay two weeks ago, San Francisco was even more generous against the Saints as the team allowed back-to-back opponents to top 500 yards of offense for the first time since 1963.The numbers are staggering.The Niners are on pace to allow 520 points this season, second-most in NFL history to the 533 given up by Baltimore in 1981. San Francisco is on pace to allow the second-most yards ever and to give up the most yards rushing in 36 years.I dont think overall the entire group is playing good as a group, Kelly said. Theres too many big plays that are occurring on the defensive side of the ball in terms of allowing big runs and weve got to do a better job of that.The Saints gained at least 19 yards on nine plays, including a 75-yard touchdown run by Mark Ingram on a play where one defender failed to slant to the left as the play was called.Execution is lacking on the defensive side of the ball in terms of being able to shut opponents down, Kelly said. Weve got to do a better job tackling. Weve got to do a better job when we have a blitz on or we have a slant on, that everybodys getting to where theyre supposed to be and taking care of their responsibilities.Ingram became the seventh straight back to top 100 yards against San Francisco -- the longest streak ever for a defense, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.Even the move to put ONeil in the press box instead of on the field didnt help. But Kelly said the issues go well beyond ONeil.Every coach we have is involved in it, he said. Im involved in it. Our D-Line coach, our linebacker coach, our secondary coach, Jimmy, our outside linebacker coach, were all involved in what goes on on the defensive side of the ball. So, I dont look at it that way that theres one person.Game notes Kelly said he has not talked to any colleges about potential job openings and plans to stay in the NFL. I havent talked to a college since Ive been in the NFL and thats not my goal. My goal is to be the head coach of the 49ers and thats what I want to do, he said. ... Kelly said the team is not considering putting DL Arik Armstead on IR despite a shoulder injury that has hampered him all season. ... WR Torrey Smith was slowed during the game by a back injury. ... Kelly said the team has not decided whether to activate rookie CB Will Redmond from IR. Redmond must be activated by Tuesday or be placed on season-ending IR.---For more NFL coverage: and Cheap Memphis Grizzlies Jerseys . Nine days before the opening ceremony, organizing committee chief Dmitry Chernyshenko said Wednesday that Sochi is "fully ready" and will deliver safe, friendly and well-run games that defy the grim reports that have overshadowed preparations. Cheap Dallas Mavericks Jerseys . Terms of the deal were not immediately available. The 26-year-old finished last season with Clevelands Triple-A affiliate in Columbus after signing with the Indians in August. .

The second-ranked Norwegian made her season debut after missing the LPGA Tours opening event last month in the Bahamas because of a shoulder injury. NEW YORK -- Sure, the New York Mets have to face Madison Bumgarner in the National League wild-card game Wednesday.Well, Mets manager Terry Collins noted, the San Francisco Giants have to face Noah Syndergaard. So they should have their hands full, too.Syndergaard (2.60) finished third in the majors in ERA, followed by Bumgarner (2.74) at fourth.Its the big leagues. Youre going to face great pitching in the postseason, Collins said. I know theyre in their clubhouse saying, Wow, weve got to face Syndergaard. It should be a great game. ... Theyre a great team. They had a rough second half. Everybody knows that. But theyre very talented. I know theyre probably banged up a little bit like we are.Syndergaard originally was slated to start Sundays game against the Philadelphia Phillies if it turned out to be meaningful, but instead he threw a bullpen session at Citizens Bank Park and focused on preparing for Wednesday.Syndergaard and Bumgarner squared off at Citi Field on May 1 in a 6-1 victory by the Giants. Syndergaard allowed four runs in 5? innings and surrendered a two-run homer to Hunter Pence in that game, while Bumgarner tossed six scoreless innings.Syndergaard rebounded to toss eight scoreless innings in a 2-0 win against the Giants on Aug. 21 at AT&T Park. Bumgarner allowed four runs -- all on a grand slam by the now-injured Justin Ruggiano -- in five innings in a no-decision earlier in that series. Bumgarner also homered against Jacob deGrom in that game.Its funky. [Bumgarner] is stepping at you and coming from behind you, Mets infielder Kelly Johnson said of the left-handers delivery. ... The man can pitch. Hes almost like a DH in the lineup, too. So weve got to worry about that. His track record speaks for itself.I dont think I have to sit here and talk about how good he is. Its going to be a tough game. Its going to be fun. I think being at Citi Field -- for us, winning the home field -- cant be stressed enough because thats a big swing in advantage for us, [and] not having to travel across the country, too. Cheap Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys. Said Collins: If you get balls to hit, you better hit them. Because if you let him get ahead of you, youre in trouble.The Mets revived their season during that mid-August series at San Francisco.After losing the opening two games at AT&T Park, the Mets had dropped to 60-62 and had fallen 5? games behind the Cardinals for the second wild-card spot. However, Yoenis Cespedes and Asdrubal Cabrera returned from the disabled list during that series and the Mets took off, winning the final two games in San Francisco and ultimately going 27-13 to close the regular season.Cespedes had three homers in the two games he played against the Giants in that series.The Mets have posted the best record in the majors since Aug. 20, buoyed not only by Cespedes and Cabreras returns but by the performances of rookie right-handers Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman.We started to get our pieces back. Theres no question, Collins said, reflecting on the series in San Francisco. We knew we had to hold it together while they were out, and we did. We didnt win as many as we wanted, but we still competed. And when we started getting our pieces back, we knew we were going to be OK. Those young pitchers really helped us finish it off.Cespedes right quadriceps continues to nag him, although he minimized the injury Sunday.I think after I came back, the whole team collectively started to improve, Cespedes said through an interpreter. And I think thats why we are where were at now. I feel good. I think Im ready physically and Im ready mentally.
