season ending San Francisco 49ers Womens Hoodie , but theres a chance things could shake up for 2019 if Nick Mullens continues playing lights out. Weve stressed her that its just one game. And a game against the Oakland Raiders. Who have one of the worst defenses in the league. Still, the numbers Nick Mullens put up for his first NFL start are impressive, no matter who hes playing. He still has several games to play to prove his stuff, but it was a great first start. That of course leads us to C.J. Beathard. Kyle Shanahan has been high on Beathard. Ive written that while he wasnt the best quarterback, he may have been the best to run Shanahans offense. I might have been very wrong with that statement. Even with the 49ers making the decision to go with Mullens, at least for one more game, Shanahan has had praise for his other quarterback: If Mullens play continues onwards, the 49ers will have some decisions to make regarding the quarterback position. I doubt any of them will involve Jimmy Garoppolo directlyhes in there for the long haul. The backup position though will be a question mark. Do the 49ers put Mullens as No. 2 and release Beathard? Or if Mullens plays well do the 49ers try and shop him and that team-friendly, UDFA contract? Unless if Mullens were to severely regress Womens Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys , Id bet the 49ers would put him at the No. 2 spot behind Garoppolo and then try to shop Beathard for a late pick or release him. From there, Shanahan may bring in another UDFA to take the third string QB and be on the practice squad. If Mullens were to play lights out and be in a sweepstakes-type role for 2019 trades, I still dont know if the 49ers would keep Beathard around. Not for his play, but for the fact theyve moved on from him for other quarterbacks two years straight. First it was for Garoppolo in 2017, then in 2018 they went with Mullens. While Shanahan can praise Beathard all he wants, benching quarterbacks isvery dangerous and can oftentimes hurt relationships. While Beathard understood the Garoppolo promotion last year, getting bumped by the third stringer may cause resentment. Theres no evidence or hints of any of this happeningits all speculation, but its something to keep in mind. What do you think the 49ers quarterback situation will be into 2019?Laken Tomlinson talks living in Jamaica, contract extension with the 49ers , playing guard in Kyle Shanahans system The San Francisco 49ers extended Laken Tomlinson in the 2018 offseason rather than pick up his 5th year option, solidifying him as the teams starting left guard. Considering his path to getting entrenched in the position, its pretty impressive. Tomlinson came to the 49ers in a late-preseason trade from the Detroit Lions. His lack of Kyle Shanahans playbook and the regular season looming over the horizon spelled disaster, but instead, Tomlinson found himself starting as the season wore on and not giving the job to anyone else. Tomlinson was a guest on Matt Maioccos 49ers Insider Podcast and discussed the transition to guard in Shanahans system so late into the 2017 season: As per usual with Maioccos podcasts, the time stamps are below.
