SANTA CLARA Roger Craig Jersey , Calif. (AP) — xgo quite as smoothly for Nick Mullens as they did in his first start.So when Mullens followed up his record-setting debut with a spottier performance that included two interceptions and a failed late drive, Shanahan wasn't overly concerned and remains committed to Mullens as the starter when the team returns from the bye next week."I think it's a positive experience," Shanahan said Tuesday. "The guy's played one game in his career. I know statistically that was the best start in NFL history. I mean, I think Nick did some real good things yesterday, too. It was a little bit more of a challenge in some circumstances. … What I liked about Nick is he never seemed rattled throughout the whole game, continued playing. He was great after the game. He was great watching film with him. I say it's a good experience or step forward because I think he'll get better from each experience he has." Just about everything went right for Mullens in his debut against the Oakland Raiders on Nov. 1, when he joined Hall of Famers Jim Kelly and Fran Tarkenton as the only players with at least 250 yards passing, three touchdown passes and no interceptions in the first career game. He also had the most efficient debut since the merger for a player with at least 20 attempts Ronnie Lott Color Rush Jersey , posting a 151.9 rating in the 34-3 win.It wasn't quite like that in a 27-23 loss to the New York Giants on Monday night. Mullens went 27 for 39 for 250 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.He helped San Francisco (2-8) build a 10-point lead in the second half before the team blew it. Mullens then drove the Niners to the 21 in the closing minute before his last-ditch pass sailed out of the back of the end zone to send San Francisco to another loss.Mullens' best play came in the third quarter when he went through several reads before finding running back Matt Breida for an 11-yard touchdown pass that made it 20-10.But there were also some mistakes, like a slightly off-target pass to Marquise Goodwin that led to an interception in the second half and a late throw to Kendrick Bourne that led to an earlier pick in the first half that set up a New York touchdown."I thought he did some decent things last night," Shanahan said. "He's a good pocket passer, so I want him to be perfect at it. He was pretty good on a number of his reads. He had a touchdown get into the last guy in his progression. Had a couple big plays, getting into number two and three. But, I want him to be automatic. I know that's what he wants to do, too. And we'll keep working at it until he is."The 49ers should be healthy when they return from the bye with Shanahan predicting that everyone on the roster should be available to practice next week. That includes linebacker Reuben Foster, who missed the past two games with a hamstring injury https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Jerry-Rice-Jersey , as well as receiver Pierre Garcon (knee) and safety Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder), who sat out Monday with injuries.Defensive backs K'Waun Williams (stinger) and receiver Goodwin were banged up in the game against the Giants but aren't expected to miss any time. SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — With quarterbacks racking up passing yards at a record pace, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman criticized the league for rules that he says unfairly favor offenses.The four-time Pro Bowler said defenses are at a severe disadvantage given the rules geared toward protecting quarterbacks.“This is what the league wanted though. They wanted record passing numbers,” Sherman said. “You can’t touch (the quarterback). You can’t tackle him. You can’t hit him high. You can’t hit him low. You can’t knock him down to the ground hard.“You can’t hit a receiver high. You can’t hit him low. You can’t push him, you can barely press him. It’s making it really difficult on teams to combat it because every rule in the book is designed to make sure you don’t get them stopped.”There’s no debating the video game-like numbers being posted. Through the first four weeks, the totals for points scored (3,030) Colin Kaepernick Jersey , touchdowns (344) and touchdown passes (228) are all the highest in NFL history.The frequency of roughing-the-passer penalties has been criticized.“The roughing (penalty) is the biggest one right now,” Sherman said. “But most of the tackling rules have changed. They’re just trying to make it impossible for guys to play defense.”The league’s goal is to reduce the injuries to the starting quarterbacks. This affected the 49ers as Jimmy Garoppolo will miss the rest of the season after tearing the ACL in his knee against Kansas City on Sept. 23. He was hurt scrambling to the sideline.“My suggestion is to put flags on the quarterbacks,” Sherman said jokingly. “If you don’t want them touched, don’t want them getting knocked down. These D-ends and D-tackles and linebackers have long arms. They’ll be able to snatch these flags off without even having to touch these guys half the time.”Sherman hopes to get back on the field. After sitting out Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers because of a strained left calf, the veteran practiced in limited fashion Thursday and wouldn’t rule himself out for Sunday’s home game against Arizona.After Sherman was injured in Week 3 against Kansas City, San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said the expectation was that Sherman likely would miss “a couple” games.The 49ers have started Jimmie Ward in Sherman’s place, although Greg Mabin rotated in at cornerback with both Ward and Ahkello Witherspoon against the Chargers. Mabin forced a fumble and earned praise from the coaching staff.He showed “great physicality, competitive toughness Richard Sherman Color Rush Jersey , communication skills,” defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said. “He did play very well in the game.”Saleh said Mabin would rotate in at cornerback again. If Sherman can go, that will affect things one way or another.NOTES: Left tackle Joe Staley (knee) did not practice Thursday. But two of the 49ers other starting offensive linemen battling knee injuries, center Weston Richburg and right tackle Mike McGlinchey, practiced in limited fashion. Running back Matt Breida (shoulder) and receiver Marquise Goodwin (quadriceps, hamstring) also were limited. … The starting safety tandem of Adrian Colbert (hip) and Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) participated fully as did running back Alfred Morris (knee).
