SANTA CLARA, Calif. Hydro Flask Wide Mouth . -- For Chip Kelly and Blaine Gabbert, this season is about a second chance at NFL success.After being run off from his first NFL coaching job in Philadelphia, Kelly took over in San Francisco and has picked another reclamation project in Gabbert as his starting quarterback for the 49ers.Gabbert, who took over as the starter in San Francisco midway through last season, begins a season in that role for the first time since 2013, which was his third and final season in Jacksonville after being the 10th overall pick in 2011.Gabbert beat out Colin Kaepernick for the job, staying mostly in the background as Kaepernick made big headlines with his protest over the national anthem.Thats one thing you like about Blaines makeup, there are not too-high highs or too-low lows, Kelly said. Hes very steady in his approach. You get the same Blaine Gabbert every day and I think thats a good thing, especially at the quarterback position.The problem for the Niners is that the Gabbert from the last five years has been far from special. He has just an 8-27 record as a starter in the NFL, completing only 55.8 percent of his passes with 33 touchdowns and 31 interceptions.That kind of play led Jacksonville to trade him to San Francisco three years after drafting him. Gabbert looked a little better last season with the 49ers when he completed 63.1 percent of his passes and posted a career-high 86.2 passer rating in eight starts.The Niners hope for even better results this season in Kellys quarterback-friendly system that helped players such as Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez have perhaps their most success as pros. That wasnt enough for Kelly to keep his job with the Eagles, but Gabbert is excited about the opportunity to run that fast-paced offense.Coach Kelly puts a lot of trust in us to go out there and make the plays, Gabbert said. Thats what you want as a competitive player. You want to have the ball in your hands. You want to be kind of leaned on to make the plays, score the points for this team. And thats what this offense does. It puts guys in position to have explosive plays.Here are some other things to watch this season for the 49ers:CATCH THE BALL: No matter who is at quarterback this season, finding proven players to throw the ball to will be a problem. Torrey Smith was the only wideout on the roster with even 40 career catches before a couple of late trades added Jeremy Kerley and Rod Streater. Kerley had just 16 catches last season for the Jets and Rod Streater has only 10 receptions the past two years. Smith has been a good deep threat for much of his career, but the Niners lack a true No. 1 receiver.DAVIS RETURN: The 49ers dealt with a string of retirements last offseason with Patrick Willis, Justin Smith, Chris Borland and Anthony Davis all deciding to call it quits. Davis proved to be temporary as he decided to come back at the start of training camp, giving a boost to San Franciscos offensive line. After being a stellar right tackle his first five years, Davis has moved to right guard this season for the first time since college with Trent Brown entrenched at tackle.DUCKS ON THE LINE: Kelly will have a couple familiar faces on the defensive line as GM Trent Baalke used his top draft picks each of the past two years on former Oregon linemen who had played for Kelly in college. Arik Armstead had just two sacks as a rookie last year, but is expected to make a much bigger impact in 2016. No. 7 overall pick DeForest Buckner has the potential to be dominant against the run and a strong pass rusher, giving the Niners a foundation for their defense.RUN TO DAYLIGHT: The Niners have one potential game-breaker on offense in third-year running back Carlos Hyde -- if he can stay healthy. Hyde showed his potential when he rushed for 168 yards in the opener last season. But he added only 302 more in six games before being shut down with a foot injury. Hydes downhill running style fits well in Kellys system.BOWMAN THE BEAST: Inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman is one of the few links left from the dominant defense that helped lead San Francisco to three straight NFC championship games from 2011-13. After sitting out 2014 with a knee injury, Bowman returned last season and made the All-Pro team despite looking like he had lost a step. But he has looked more explosive this summer and is poised for another big year.---AP NFL website: and Hydro Flask 32 Oz Water Bottle . The FA rejected Wilsheres appeal that the length of his punishment was "clearly excessive" and said Thursday his suspension begins with immediate effect. He will miss league matches against Chelsea on Monday and West Ham on Dec. Hydro Flask 24 Oz Standard Mouth . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . . LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. MINNEAPOLIS -- Miguel Sano has returned to the Minnesota Twins, the experiment with making him a right fielder likely over.The Twins recalled Sano on Friday from his rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Rochester, after a 27-game absence because of a strained left hamstring. He was in the lineup at third base against the Texas Rangers, batting third.Ive been working my whole life to be playing third base, and I feel really excited, Sano said before the game.So hes glad to be done with the outfield?Yeah, Im happy, Sano said.Manager Paul Molitor said hell use Sano at both third base and designated hitter, where Trevor Plouffe was slotted against the Rangers. There will be more at-bats to go around, because Byung Ho Park was sent to the Triple-A club to make room on the roster. Park, in his first season in the majors after dominating the Korean Baseball Organization, was hitting .191 with 12 home runs and 24 RBI with a team-high 80 strikeouts in 215 at-bats.Weve all been impressed by his character and the way hes fit in and the work hes done to try to acclimate himself, not only to our team but to our culture, but its just been rough, Molitor said. I think its been really, really tough on him mentally to deal with some of the frustration that came particularly over the last three or four weeks. While hes understanding and certainly accepting of the situation, hes going to have to go down there and hopefully lessen the burden a little bit.Park, who turns 30 next wweek, went 9 for 66 in 19 games in June. Hydro Flask 40 Oz Black Friday. Hes got to clear some of that clutter and kind of simplify it a little bit, Molitor said. That was kind of my message to him this morning. Go back to what you know. You might have to make some adjustments, but dont try to overhaul anything and hopefully get yourself back on track.Sano hit .235 with 11 home runs, 27 RBI and 71 strikeouts in 179 at-bats before the injury, with a .341 on-base percentage. The Twins tried the 6-foot-4, 260-pound Sano in right field to start the season because of a roster crunch at third base (Plouffe), first base (Joe Mauer) and designated hitter (Park).Sano was hurt running to first base after an at-bat, but he had many more adventures at his new position than he did highlights. Plus, another one of the organizations top prospects, Max Kepler, has settled in as the regular right fielder.If get into a situation where I would have to put him in the outfield I would consider that, Molitor said. Thats not really my preference right now.Sano had four hits, including two homers, in 25 at-bats for Rochester. He also let an infield pop-up bounce off his head that was caught by a teammate, a blooper that subjected him to plenty of ribbing from the Twins. But he was just glad to be back.It doesnt matter where they put me to play, Sano said. Ill try to play my game.
