The Nicky Mullens Experience

Word out of 49ers HQ is that Nick Mullens will ‘reportedly’ start the next game against the New York Giants on Monday night. No definite word yet, but really, they really have to go with Mullens at this point. Mainly because he has looked good in his preseason stints and now has passed the real (sort of) test of live game action. He hit small windows, he hit a couple nice mid-range passes, and really only threw one bad pass.

The Beater on the other hand has been a turnover machine in his 10 starts. He is ahead of 16 TEAMS in turnovers. He leads the league in balls tipped at the line as well. Something that annoys the shit out of me as that can lead to easy picks. We know what we have in the Beater. He may be bigger and stronger and tougher, but he isn’t better. Mullens feels the pressure better (seemingly),  gets the ball out MUCH quicker, and goes through his progressions nicely. Granted, he faced a fairly disinterested team in the Raiders, but just look how CJ did against the nearly-as-shitty Cardinals.

I’ll repost the breakdown of Mullens’ game as it shows the details of his reads very well. And the Pokemon video!  Good stuff.

    They should of started Mullen’s against the Cards, probably looking at 3 straight wins especially with how shitty NY is!
    Shit if the DL shows up to play Eli should get sacked atleast 5 times since he’s already been sacked 31 times behind a Swiss cheese line..

    Cowboys getting booed off their field. Love it.

    I don’t begrudge not starting Mullens till the Beater got hurt, but now that he”s playing, let him keep playing.

      I can’t see how Shanny can sit him after that last game. Can he do it again against the NY Football Giants? I think he can.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    If he keeps winning you keep playing him.

  7. unca_chuck says:

    I mean really. Learning how to win is as big a lesson as evaluating players. Shanny certainly has problems closing games out so he needs to work on winning just ike the players do.
