After the game [url=http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-fred-warner-jersey]White Fred Warner Jersey[/url] , 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, 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 [url=http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-solomon-thomas-jersey]Youth Solomon Thomas Jersey[/url] , 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, 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 [url=http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-alfred-morris-jersey]White Alfred Morris Jersey[/url] , 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.Jimmy Garoppolo lost and the 49ers are doomed once again Boys, girls, non-binaries and everything else in between, it is with a heavy heart that I must inform all of you that Jimmy Garoppolo has lost a regular season game as a starting quarterback. I realize there were other players involved in the loss, most notably a very good Minnesota Vikings defense, but seeing our late-2017 season and offseason hero go down with three interceptions has had some adverse effects on my psyche.I am thinking quite clearly when I state, matter-of-factly, that the San Francisco 49ers are well and truly doomed.Gosh, I know what you’re thinking: “James, what the heck? I thought you were feeling positive about things?” and I get what you’re saying. I’m just as bummed out as you are. In between bouts of crying into my pillow and admiring my Garoppolo phone wallpaper, I realized that it’s best to go with my gut. And my gut, while ample in size and eerily intimidating to normal-sized humans, is rarely wrong.Me? I’m doomed. We are all doomed, with absolutely nothing to suggest the opposite might be true. Pessimism is the only true course here, and I’m more than happy to be standing at the helm of this broken-down, decrepit ship of doom, steering us all right into the gaping maw of our own existential crisis. It’s not a role I asked for, but one I gladly adopted when it was clear a leader of mediocre skill, intelligence and charisma was needed.And you’re welcome.Really [url=http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-kyle-juszczyk-jersey]http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-kyle-juszczyk-jersey[/url] , there is no way to reconcile Garoppolo losing. It’s a tragedy on par with that one time Fooch left and you lot got obsessed with poop buckets, conduct that I absolutely played no part in and certainly didn’t encourage. I mean, who the heck was even running this trash fire when that happened?I don’t get to write about the 49ers as much as I’d like to with my growing responsibilities at SB Nation, and it only feels right that when I get some opportunities to do so, I should be my true self. And my true self is a nightmare garbage pile with a murky, sullen cloud of pessimism hovering just overhead. My true self also quite enjoys listening to doom metal until my ears bleed, and that may be having an impact on my outlook.So, we’re not here just to talk about MY outlook on the 49ers (as absolutely correct and infallible as it has always been and always shall be), we’re here to conduct science. We’re here to break down the walls between stats and opinion, and we’re here to do it by measuring the levels of pure, unfiltered doom currently speeding headlong toward all of us, and the 49ers.Finally, I will admit to very recently having been somewhat optimistic about the 49ers. That took a big hit when Jerick McKinnon went down for the season, and it took a bigger hit when Marquise Goodwin was banged up almost immediately. And you see, through the malaise of doom and pessimism, I can still see the connective tissue of this football team, and it looks strong. I daresay there may be a time again, very soon, where I am feeling alright about the 49ers. Three interceptions sucks, but at the same time [url=http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-earl-mitchell-jersey]http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-earl-mitchell-jersey[/url] , only one of them was particularly egregious on Garoppolo’s part, and to me that’s a huge relief. The offensive line, despite injuries, played well, and Dante Pettis looked good. On the defensive side of the ball, I saw a lot of good things, especially with Fred Warner.Keep this in mind — and don’t tell anybody, this is just between us and you don’t want to be a snitch — I really do like the position the 49ers are in. For now, I’ll be voting for the “least doomed” option but again, if you tell anybody, I will find you and we will fight.Essentially, the point of all of this is for YOU to tell me how doomed you think the 49ers are You can find past results for the Doom Index in this image gallery here. As you can see, people have been feeling mostly positive throughout the offseason, though after the NFL Draft, there were many who were unimpressed.
