Default The San Francisco 49ers lost a wild game to the New York Giants

on Monday Night Football. We’ll definitely be breaking things down on how things went good then ugly San Francisco 49ers Womens T-Shirt , but during the game, one of the randomly more interesting developments wasn’t what was happening on the field, it was off it. We got some Jimmy Garoppolo sightings! We can never get enough Jimmy G, even if he’s on injured reserve. The Monday Night Football crew made sure to get a shot of Garoppolo in a Levi’s Stadium suite watching the game. It was good to check up on Jimmy G and see him doing well. Well, some people weren’t as happy. Former 49ers general manager Scot McCloughan took to Twitter quickly to ask the most ridiculous question: I don’t know, I guess that’s a reasonable question to ask. Except there’s some context that McCloughan needs. Before we get to that, let’s finish out his night on Twitter. As you might expect, the above tweet prompted the masses to fire away at McCloughan. He responded with this, and was quickly rebuffed by the tweet following it: It sounds like a perfect counterpoint to the angry fans, but this was rebuffed by the fact that this sideline gesture was before the game started. Wentz spent the above game in the suite you see in the bottom tweet when the clock started ticking. So what’s the deal with the 49ers? Why would Garoppolo be in the suite anyways? Well it wasn’t his decision, it was Kyle Shanahan’s. This very question came up in a press conference in late October. I have his response below on Garoppolo being on the sidelines for games: I’m really not sure what prompted McCloughan to troll the fans like this, or if it really matters where Garoppolo watches the game. It’s not like he’s intentionally trying to avoid playing football, he tore up his knee after all. It’s also not like the 49ers can put him in if Nick Mullens doesn’t work out. Do you think it matters where Jimmy G watches the game? Coming off a big win against the Raiders, there’s good reason to be excited about the outlook for the rest of the season. CJ Beathard’s replacement at quarterback provided a much-needed spark to a team that seemed destined to lose out through 2018 - albeit against a team that is probably destined to lose out through 2018. Is it too soon off the high of the victory to declare the win “fool’s gold” and resume keeping both eyes on the offseason? Long answer short, we’ve just got to wait.The Raiders defense is bad. Like San Francisco 49ers Hats , really bad. Unbelievably bad. Their coverage of the passing game was horrible - frequently blown coverages aside, the Raiders seemed to have difficulty scheming their players into position, or making plays when the chance was available. Going simply by the eye-test and a 24+ hour memory of the game, it seemed like the Raiders were consistently sending a minimum of five defenders at the undrafted QB who was playing his first game in the NFL. Obviously, it’s not an ill-advised strategy, but the anemic Raiders pass rush (which had the potential to be gamebreakingly devastating just a few short season ago by teaming Khalil Mack with Aldon Smith) relied on volume of bodies, because they just didn’t have the juice to win on individual matchups. This strategy left the secondary undermanned, which likely contributed to Mullens’ big day through the air. Credit is certainly due to Mullens for beating the blitz regularly, and criticism is more than deserved for the Raiders secondary who seemed out-of-position throughout much of the game.Back to the thesis - was the W against the Raiders fool’s gold? Mullens put together some solid tape in his first start, but we’re left with a chicken-and-egg conundrum. Is Mullens’ success due to innate intangibles that will translate from opponent to opponent, or did he manage to Matt Flynn himself into relevance by the fortune of being slotted in for Raiders week? I wish I had a better answer for you, but we’re stuck with “sample size!” as perhaps the best answer right now. Considering that Kyle Shanahan has yet to name a starting QB for next week, there exists a chance that this sample size may not increase for quite some time.Week 9 review | Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area | Biderman, Ninerswire | Biderman (2) San Francisco 49ers Womens Hoodie , Ninerswire | Madson, Ninerswire | Madson (2), NinerswireRaheem Mostert, Emmanuel Moseley to IR | Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area | KNBR Staff | Biderman, Ninerswire | Madson, NinerswireNick Mullens by the numbers | Johnson, NBC Sports Bay AreaKyle Shanahan on why Nick Mullens went undrafted | KNBR StaffGeorge Kittle by the numbers | Johnson, NBC Sports Bay AreaGeorge Kittle’s breakout season | Almquist, KNBRMike McGlinchey on the coin toss that sent him to the 49ers | Chan, NBC Sports Bay AreaKyle Shanahan waiting to decide who starts at QB next | Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area | Biderman, Ninerswire
