column for the 49ers. After the game Brock Coyle jersey , head coach Kyle Shanahan didn’t mince his words at all when asked about the late-game collapse, adding “There was a number of plays, extremely disappointed. Thought we put ourselves in a position to win the game...I thought we had a chance to step on their throats and didn’t.”The 49ers’ youth and lack of a pass rush continues to show up late in games when they try to protect a lead. There are a few defensive breakdowns or penalties, combined with too much time in the pocket for opposing quarterbacks. On New York’s final drive, Giants’ quarterback Eli Manning was 7-of-10, aided by two huge defensive penalties from corner Ahkello Witherspoon and linebacker Malcolm Smith that kept the drive going. Nine plays, 75 yards later, the Giants have taken the lead and now the 49ers are in a near-impossible situation given who their quarterback is.Flipping that around, I thought San Francisco’s offense played decently, given that they were down wideout Pierre Gar莽on before the game. Breakout quarterback Nick Mullens finished 27-of-39 for 250 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions.How did the 49ers measure up to the pre-game keys that were laid out?1. Slow down the Giants’ superstars, RB Saquon Barkley and WR Odell Beckham JrI expected the 49ers to cover one of these guys particularly well, while the other would run wild all over Robert Saleh’s defense. Except, the exact opposite happened. The 49ers’ defense did a particularly effective job defending running back Saquon Barkley Authentic Richard Sherman jersey , but dropped the ball against superstar wideout Odell Beckham Jr — on the two most important plays of the game.First up — Barkley. The former Penn State running back carried the ball 20 times, yet it was for only 67 yards (3.3 YPA). On numerous occasions, Barkley would be stuck dancing in the backfield with nowhere to go. If you take out his longest run of 18 yards, the average drops to 2.6 YPA. He tacked on four catches for 33 yards, but considering his multiple double-digit reception games in the past, the 49ers did well against the rookie.On the other hand, San Francisco’s defense seemed to let Beckham Jr. run “buck naked” — as corner Richard Sherman likes to say — against the defense. On both of his touchdown receptions, there were busts in coverage that allowed for an easy 12 points for the Giants.On the first touchdown catch, three 49ers’ defenders were in the area, but the ex-LSU star snuck behind them for a wide-open — I mean, the next defender wasn’t in the same zip code wide-open — touchdown. In the ensuing touchdown, Witherspoon expected help from the free safety, but Beckham Jr. was too busy celebrating his touchdown by that time already. Outside of those two plays, the 49ers’ defensive backs and linebacker Fred Warner did a decent job of keeping Beckham Jr. in check.2. QB Nick Mullens continues his “Mullens’ Magic” from last weekThis was going to be the real question heading into Monday night — can Mullens keep up his play from last Thursday. The answer was a resounding confirmation. Mullens certainly continued his magical play against the Giants — who played much better defense than the Raiders did last week. I’m sure there were a few plays that Mullens would like to have back Youth Weston Richburg jersey , but for the most part, it seemed like he did what he could. His first interception raises questions about arm strength, but the second interception was due to a dropped pass.On the final drive of the game, Mullens was able to move the ball 54 yards in 53 seconds, before throwing it out of the end zone in the final play to win the game and I’m sure he had a lot of Giants’ fans on the edge of their seats.For the rest of the season, opposing defenses are going to force Mullens to throw the ball outside of the numbers and really test his arm strength and timing with his wide receivers. Aside from that, Mullens has continually showed poise in the pocket and the ability to make the correct pre-snap reads. It’ll be tougher against better defenses, but I expect more from Mullens than I did from backup C.J. Beathard the last few weeks.3. DC Robert Saleh should turn the pass rushers loose against the Giants’ OLComing into the game, Manning was sacked 31 times by opposing defenses and it’s been a poor theme for the Giants’ offensive line all year long. Looking at a lot of his sacks before the Monday night matchup, it seemed to be partially due to Manning’s immobility, as well as an offensive lineman’s mistake. I fully expected Saleh to turn the pass rushers loose and make Manning feel the pressure in the pocket. This was a case of: “Are the 49ers’ rushers that bad or the Giants’ OL that good?” — because San Francisco finished the game with only one sack for an eight-yard loss. Coming into the game, the Giants were giving up nearly four sacks per game, so I expected at least that for a young 49ers’ defense. Yet, a combination of poor coverage in the backend and no top-flight pass rusher continues to hurt the defense — especially in late-game situations. It was a particularly bad sign that the 49ers’ could not generate more sacks against a team that gifts them away on a weekly basis.Golden Nuggets: Witherspoon and Goodwin Limited http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-kyle-juszczyk-jersey , Tartt Did Not Practice Good morning folks, and a happy Thursday to you. Although the NFL has been pushing “Thursday games are good!” in their commercials this year, they’ve scheduled what should be marketed as the Toilet Bowl, in a game between the New York Jets and the Cleveland Browns. Last year, these two teams were among the worst in the league, as the Jets finished with the 6th overall pick, and the Browns cemented their place in history with a 0-win season.Luckily for both, they seem to be improved, but this still promises to be an ugly game. The Browns compiled their first not-loss since December 2016 this season in a tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and played the New Orleans Saints down to the wire. The Jets started the season with a bang, opening up with a blowout against the Detroit Lions. While both teams have promising young talent (acquired as a consequence of high draft picks), it remains to be seen if either team will make a meaningful step forward this year.As usual Wednesday is injury report day - and there’s a fair amount of information to process. Starting with the opponent, the Kansas City Chiefs sat Eric Berry and Chris Jones (not the same Chris Jones we had, their version is productive from the interior). In the grand scheme Pierre Garcon jersey , this means very little, as that team is built to win on offense. Our injuries are a little bit more concerning, however. Jaquiski Tartt remains sidelined with a shoulder injury he suffered late in the Lions game, and the perpetually-injured Joshua Garnett has not yet returned to practice. Mike Person has been limited, as he continues to work through a foot injury. It seems likely that he gets the start against the Chiefs, although it’s not like that a huge victory.More importantly, however, Ahkello Witherspoon has been limited in practice while nursing an ankle injury, and Marquise Goodwin is still having issues with his hamstring. Neither has yet been explicitly ruled out for Sunday, but these lingering leg issues on the perimeters could be a problem if either were to start. The Chiefs have a ton of speed on offense, and a banged-up Witherspoon would likely end up with a target on his back for the second straight week if he were to play . The lack of Goodwin’s speed hurt the 49ers last week against the Lions, and would be an enormous loss to the team against the Chiefs, as the two teams enter what should be a shootout.Analysis & ReviewRobbie Gould wins NFC Special Teamer of the week | Almquist, KNBR | Madson Authentic Laken Tomlinson jersey , Ninerswire49ers lead league in 1st down yards/carry | Madson, NinerswireRoster & Injury ReportsReuben Foster activated, Matt Tobin released | Ochoa, 4th & 9 | Biderman, Sac Bee | Madson, Ninerswire49ers-Chiefs injury report | Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area | Madson, NinerswireMarquise Goodwin’s status for Sunday “noncommittal” | Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay AreaNo decision yet made on LBs for Sunday | Madson, NinerswireMiscellaneousThis ‘n that | Almquist, KNBR
