‘I’m really frustrated by the loss’: Nick Mullens feels 49ers can still win games down the stretch

Nov 15, 2020 at 5:55 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers lost their third consecutive game and sixth of the season. The team heads into its much-needed bye week, hoping to rest and recover — maybe get some players back on the other end.

The latest loss came at the hands of the New Orleans Saints, who knocked off the visiting 49ers 27-13. After the game, reporters asked quarterback Nick Mullens about the locker room's mood as the season seemingly continues to spiral downward.

"Right now, I'm really frustrated by the loss," Mullens said via Zoom. "I feel like we really could have done some special things out there. But we've got a resilient group. We've got a bye week. We've got six games left. And I feel like we can win games. We can win a lot of games.

"We've just got to play disciplined football. And that's going to be the mindset moving forward, just disciplined football. And we're just going to put our heads down and go to work, and we're excited about that. It's the last stretch, and it's time to kick it in gear."

Linebacker Fred Warner was also asked about the state of the locker room, and how it compares to the rough stretches during his rookie season in 2018.

"Trust me; this isn't nowhere near where that 2018 season was," Warner said. "Yeah, I remember that year. This is a much more experienced football team, and we just haven't had things go our way."

The 49ers should be receiving a few reinforcements after the bye week — players like running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman on offense and cornerback Richard Sherman on defense.

Of course, San Francisco lost yet another player — running back JaMycal Hasty — against the Saints. He suffered a broken collarbone and will likely join a crowded group on injured reserve.

"We're going to get a lot of players back after the bye week," Warner continued. "Everybody needs this bye week. We've been playing for a while now. So, we have a great opportunity to just continue to get better, and guys understand that."

The 2020 season was a strange one. For the San Francisco 49ers, it was filled with injuries, and the team suffered setbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That includes members of the team being kicked out of their homes for over a month and moving to Arizona after Santa Clara County restrictions banned contact sports.

Fred Warner trusts Shanahan and Lynch's vision for the 49ers, feels 2020 is the last losing season

There is so much uncertainty for the San Francisco 49ers as they embark into the 2021 offseason. Nearly 40 players are scheduled to become free agents, and the team is pressed up against a salary cap that is expected to drop from $198.2 million to a number that could be as low as $175 million. General manager John Lynch said this week that the 49ers are operating under the assumption that they will have $175 million to work with this year. Anything more would be a bonus. That means some tough decisions may be on the horizon, and the roster could look very different next season. Fred Warner, who will need a contract extension himself fairly soon, isn't too worried about the 49ers' future. After all, 2020's downfall had more to do with injuries than anything else.

Steve Young feels a Deshaun Watson-to-49ers trade is worth giving up the draft picks

How much is Deshaun Watson worth? It wasn't long ago that the Houston Texans determined that he was worth $156 million to be the face of the franchise. If they don't rectify the situation with their young star quarterback soon, they may have to learn how much he is worth in draft compensation. Watson may want out of Houston after expressing some frustration with how the organization handles itself. Could head coach Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers come calling? It would cost a lot, but it would also mean an opportunity to fix the mistake of choosing Solomon Thomas over one of the rookie quarterbacks available in the 2017 draft. And no, I'm not counting C.J. Beathard. The question becomes what the Texans might ask in return for Watson, should
