GREEN BAY, Wis. Cheap Bayern Munich Jerseys Authentic . -- As the yards and points allowed add up at a huge rate, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is staying the course.McCarthy reiterated Monday what he said after the Packers latest crushing loss the previous night: now is not the time to make any drastic changes, especially with a defense that is low on manpower and high on allowing big plays.Theres no reinventing the wheel, McCarthy asserted. Weve talked about this since the day I arrived here. We have a system of football -- offense, defense and special teams -- that accommodates any football player on our roster. If weve got to reinvent the wheel in Week 11 or Week 12, we havent set our plan the right way for the season.Theres not much time left for the Packers to get the season turned back in the right direction after host Washington pummeled them 42-24 on Sunday night.The Packers are in the throes of their first four-game losing streak since late in the 2008 season, the last time they didnt make the playoffs. At 4-6, they are two games behind NFC North front-runners Detroit and Minnesota.Most troubling for Green Bay is opponents have figured out the clear way to beat the Packers is to go deep against the porous back end of their defense.Kirk Cousins exploited a short-handed secondary that thinned out even more during the game by throwing for 375 yards and three touchdowns. The Packers allowed 515 yards, a season high, and 40-plus points for the second straight week after giving up 47 in a 22-point loss at Tennessee.You cant win ballgames giving up that many points, no matter whos on offense, defensive back Micah Hyde lamented after Sundays game. Our offense can score a lot of points and move the ball, do what they do, but if we give up that many points, were not going to win any games. And weve seen that the last couple of weeks.The hemorrhaging with the defense has been going on for nearly a month. Green Bay has given up 30 or more points in each game during the skid, its longest such streak of allowing so many points in a game since 1953. The 153 points allowed are the most by the Packers in a four-game stretch since the 1951 team gave up 156 its final four weeks.The Green Bay defense has been responsible for all but seven of those points in the last four contests, during which the opposition has averaged more than 420 yards per game and thrown for nearly 1,250 yards and 12 touchdowns.To the chagrin of McCarthy, the Packers have forced only two turnovers in those games. Theyve had zero the last two weeks.The biggest hole in our football team is our turnover ratio, said McCarthy, whose club is minus-6 in turnover margin. Ive been talking about it all year. Were not taking care of the football, were not taking the football away. Until that changes, were going to be fighting uphill.Defensive coordinator Dom Capers simply said, No excuses, on Monday even as the injuries mounted for the defense.Already playing without top cornerbacks Sam Shields and Damarious Randall, the Packers lost replacement starter Demetri Goodson to what McCarthy termed a significant knee injury in the first half Sunday.Green Bay later had starting rookie linebacker Blake Martinez (knee) and contributing rookie safety Kentrell Brice (neck) leave the game as the Redskins pulled away in the second half with touchdown passes of 44 and 70 yards and a few other big plays.Thats when kind of all hell broke loose, Capers said.McCarthy said Randall is getting closer to returning to action, perhaps by next Monday night, when the Packers end their three-game road swing against the Philadelphia Eagles.I think what happened (Sunday) is very correctable, and weve got to go back to work and correct it because we know weve got to go to Philly and find a way to win a game, Capers said.---For more NFL coverage: and Cheap Bayern Munich Jerseys China .

He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat. TORONTO -- Top-ranked Novak Djokovic beat 10th-seeded Gael Monfils 6-3, 6-2 on Saturday night to reach the Rogers Cup final and improve to 12-0 against the Frenchman.You do have a certain mental comfort knowing that you have had plenty of success against your opponent, Djokovic said. Nevertheless, that is not a certainty. Thats not a guarantee that you can win the match. Actually, it makes him more eager to come out and play his best tennis.Djokovic will face third-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan on Sunday. Nishikori beat second-seeded Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland 7-6 (6), 6-1 in the first semifinal.Djokovic is trying to win a record 30th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title. The 29-year-old Serb has 12 Grand Slam titles, winning this year in Australia and France.Monfils was coming off a victory last week in Washington.I guess he missed a few shots at the beginning. I got some opportunities and I took them, Monfils said. And then suddenly he was not missing anymore. He was going for his shots and being much better in the rallies. He became super solid. When Novak is playing like that, its very tough to beat him.Djokovic had six double faaults and one ace. Wholesale Bayern Munich Jerseys. Ive been working on my serve a lot the last couple of years, and I think especially on the second serve it has gave me an advantage, more depth on the second serve and so forth, Djokovic said. In this tournament, it is not working very well, but in general in past couple of years, it has served me very well.Nishikori recorded his fourth straight Memphis title in February for his 11th ATP Tour victory. He has lost his past eight matches with Djokovic, the last loss in the Key Biscayne final in April.Havent beat Novak for a long time on hard court, Nishikori said. I think its going to be a great challenge for me to play Novak again in the final, because we played in Miami and he dominated the game. So, I hope I can get revenge this time.In the doubles semifinals, Britains Jamie Murray and Brazils Bruno Soares beat Canadas Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil 6-4, 6-7 (5), 10-7, and Croatias Ivan Dodig and Brazils Marcelo Melo topped Romanias Florin Mergea and Horia Tecau 6-4, 6-3. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
