‘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."

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo says knee is "a little sore," feels hit by Saints defender was dirty

Brock Purdy started warming up on the sideline after San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo took a hit to his surgically repaired left knee and was slow to get up. Garoppolo appeared to be in pain. The quarterback was asked if he ever thought he might need to exit the game. "Nah, I was staying in the game," Garoppolo told reporters after the 49ers' 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. "I knew what type of game it was. That's what it was all day. That wasn't the only hit that was questionable like that. Throughout the whole game, it was like that, but that's football. "It was a gritty game. I'm proud of the guys today, how they fought through the adversity that was thrown at us. There was all kinds of adversity, and we just kept going. I think



49ers' Nick Bosa on 4th-down sack vs. Saints: "I think it was just a good jump"

New Orleans Saints fans were fuming after the game. Many felt that San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa was early off the line of scrimmage on the fourth-down play that led to sack number 11.5 for the defender this season. Even Bosa wasn't sure the play would stand. "It was great. I didn't think it counted, but once I realized it did, I was pretty happy," Bosa told reporters after the 49ers' 13-0 win at Levi's Stadium. A reporter asked Bosa why he felt it might not have counted. "I thought I jumped, but I looked at it," Bosa shared. "I think it was just a good jump." That, of course, led to some laughs from the 49ers media. The talented defensive end went on to discuss the play further. "I think the tackle got off at



Jimmy Garoppolo says 49ers played best game against Cardinals but still have 'a long way to go'

As good as the San Francisco 49ers played against the Arizona Cardinals Monday night, there's still room for them to get better, according to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. It's hard to find much fault with how the 49ers played in their 38-10 shellacking of the Cardinals at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. After fighting off a somewhat slow start, the 49ers rolled over the Cardinals on offense while the defense held them scoreless in the second half, marking the third consecutive week they've reached that feat against an opponent. It was a performance many had been waiting for from the 49ers after an inconsistent start to the season, and Garoppolo had one of his best outings of the year along the way, throwing for 228 yards and four touchdowns on 20-of-29 passing. But even though



49ers-Saints Injury Report: Deebo Samuel still listed as "limited"

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 12 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The media did not have access to watch the Thanksgiving practice. The team gave them the day off due to the holiday. That means there are no observations to report from the Thursday session, which was a lighter walk-through. Reporters will return to watch the last practice of the week, which begins on Friday at 12:18 p.m. PT. On Wednesday, the 49ers were without defensive lineman Arik Armstead, and wide receiver Deebo Samuel and defensive end Samson Ebukam were limited. That remained the case on Thursday. Tackle Trent Williams returned from his veteran day off. Below are Thursday's
