49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan will have 10 Verfasst am: Beitrag 07:39 Fr - Jan 04, 2019

days to decide who will will get the start at quarterback for San Francisco in their next game against the New York Giants.After Thursday night’s showing against the Oakland Raiders B.J. Hill Jersey , Shanahan said after the game that Nick Mullens would absolutely be in consideration to get the starting nod when the time comes.“Definitely will consider it,” Shanahan said. “Definitely not thinking about that right now. Our whole team played very well. Nick definitely did. I thought our guys up front played well and I thought the entire offense did. I thought the defense played their tails off. I thought the pass rush was there. I thought we tackled well, thought our punter and kicker did well so it was a very good all around win.”Mullens completed 16 of 22 passes for 262 yards and three touchdowns as the 49ers cruised to a 34-3 victory over the Raiders. While Shanahan was thrilled with Mullens’ performance, he also said it was a collective effort that enabled the team to do what it did Thursday night.“He did an awesome job today,” Shanahan said. “The guys played real well around him. There’s a lot on his plate coming in and being his first time in a real NFL game, non-preseason. Started off real well, was very poised, got the guys in and out of the huddle and did a hell of a job.“He didn’t really know for sure whether he was going to start today until today and just the way he handled the two days of long walkthroughs and stuff, he’s a machine in there and I was happy for him.”Mullens got the start because C.J. Beathard was injured in Sunday’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals and had trouble sufficiently gripping a football this week in practice.“The main thing was whether C.J. could be the backup or not,” Shanahan said regarding how close Beathard was to being able to play Thursday night. “Yesterday we had a pretty good idea that we were going to go with Nick. We just wanted to make sure that C.J. could be out there and at least be healthy enough to be the backup. So we had to go through that this morning with him. Once we confirmed that we were good to go.”With Mullens playing as well as he did, it invites the question of why the 49ers didn’t go to him sooner as they struggled to find victories following the loss of Jimmy Garoppolo to a knee injury in September. Shanahan said he believes Beathard would have been equally as successful with the way the 49ers played around their quarterback Thursday night.“Because I don’t put all those struggles on just C.J.,” Shanahan said. “I think people make a huge mistake saying if you win it’s the quarterback. If you lose it’s the quarterback. I mean, there’s 11 guys on offense, 53 guys on our team. I thought our team had probably our best game of the year so far. That’s nothing against C.J. I think C.J. would have played well tonight too if he played.”Pat Shurmur explains LB Armstrong’s promotion, talks about QBs Bridgewater, Darnold When the New York Giants returned to practice Sunday afternoon, it was with the intention of addressing problems that cropped up in their game against the Detroit Lions, as well as preparing to play the New York Jets. When he spoke to the media after practice Authentic Saquon Barkley Jersey , Pat Shurmur was clearly in a good mood following his first victory as the Giants’ head coach. He opened his press conference by joking with the assembled reporters. “Training camp. Just one injury – Ralph Vacchiano, lower leg injury, he’s day to day,” Shurmur said to laughter. “I actually fined him this morning for missing treatment. His agent wants to fight it, but we’ll just call it a lower leg injury.”Joking aside, Shurmur confirmed that not only would the team actively game-plan for the Jets on Friday night, but they have started looking ahead to their Opening Week game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. With his opening remarks out of the way, Shurmur took questions.On Ray-Ray Armstrong It was noted during the Giants’ practice Sunday afternoon that linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong had worked his way up the depth chart to play with the starters in one of their nickel packages. “As a linebacker, he’s long and he can cover,” Shurmur said of Armstrong. “He’s what linebackers should look like and he’s made progress. We feel like he’s done some really good things as we work through training camp, so it was good to see him have some success.” Shurmur hinted that Armstrong coming up with the interception on the tip-drill might have played a role in his move up the depth chart.“We felt like he had a winning performance in the game the other night, and every once in a while everybody has a bad play, but in total we felt like it was a winning performance and that was a game-changing play. We were able to intercept the ball, get it close and then offensively, we then punched it in, so it was good.”The Giants are likely hoping that Armstrong’s athleticism and background as a (big) safety at the University of Miami will help their coverage in the middle of the field in nickel situations. Shurmur said that Armstrong’s blend of size and athleticism is what they are looking for in a linebacker” “Certainly this is a big man’s game,” Shurmur said, “and so the bigger you are http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/saquon-barkley-jersey , as long as you can run and you’re athletic like he is, it’s good. It’s what we’re looking for. Hard to throw the ball around because he’s taller, but he can run and cover, and he’s done a good job with his run fits as well.”On Teddy Bridgewater and Sam DarnoldThe Giants’ head coach has a fair amount of familiarity with two of the quarterbacks for whom he will be game-planning. Shurmur coached Teddy Bridgewater as a Minnesota Viking, first as his quarterbacks coach, then as the offensive coordinator. “Teddy is an outstanding, competitive guy and he’s got a unique charisma,” Shurmur said. “When I was there with him, the whole area loved Teddy. He just had that way about him, and then when he got injured everyone was pulling for him to come back. I’m thrilled for whatever success he’s having. I did peak at their game and it appears to me like he’s playing pretty well. The only thing I would say is don’t sleep on Teddy because I think he’s got it in him.”The Giants also heavily scouted rookie quarterback Sam Darnold in the lead-up to the 2018 NFL Draft. They ultimately passed on Darnold, opting instead for running back Saquon Barkley. That decision will be litigated and re-litigated again and again over the coming week, months, and years. Asked about his take on Darnold as a quarterback, Shurmur said, “He had some of the same traits that Teddy has. Very charismatic, he has that winning presence about him and you can see being with him on campus at USC that the players really kind of came to him. He had that, and he was obviously highly successful as a quarterback.” Antworten mit Zitat
