NaVorro Bowman remains unsigned When the San Francisco 49ers released NaVorro Bowman a few weeks into the 2017 season [url=http://www.49erslockerroom.com/authentic-mike-mcglinchey-jersey]Mike McGlinchey Jersey[/url] , you could hear the collective gasp from the fanbase. Despite one gruesome knee injury, and later an achilles rupture, Bowman continued to be the heart and soul of the 49ers, holding the team together with the departures of Frank Gore and Patrick Willis. Bowman signed with the Oakland Raiders not too long after his release, contributed on their defense almost immediately and went into 2018 a free agent. And now, one year later, Bowman remains unsigned. It was a bit concerning to not see him snapped up when free agency began, but understandable for a veteran with Bowman’s to come in long after training camp begins. It wouldn’t be too far-fetched to assume he may catch onto a team on their way to a 53 man roster. He’s had some visits, but as we are now into Week 2 of the 2018 NFL season and there’s nary a word. Keep in mind, this is the guy who combined with Patrick Willis to make two of the best middle linebackers in the NFL for multiple years. A three-time Pro Bowler. Teams should want Bowman, right?Well, not now, perhaps.The Bowman decision was polarizing with fans. Some knew he wasn’t in the long-term plans of John Lynch/Kyle Shanahan and felt it best he be released. Others wondered if the release, as well as the events leading up to the release were the correct decisions. Bowman began getting less playing time as Robert Saleh’s 4-3 defense demanded a different style of play than Bowman was used to. Once Bowman got frustrated, the 49ers did him a favor. Now the 49ers have Reuben Foster (who returns in Week 3) and Fred Warner as the new linebacking duo. Warner has already drawn comparisons to Bowman, so it’s safe to say the 49ers may not be looking back. Steve Young said that Bill Walsh would have a philosophy of getting players off the team a year before it was too late. It’s been documented that this rubbed several players the wrong way, but it was also necessary to maintain a competitive roster. Given that Bowman remains unsigned into 2018 [url=http://www.49erslockerroom.com/authentic-steve-young-jersey]Womens Steve Young Jersey[/url] , do you think it corroborates the 49ers decision to release him? Coming off a big win against the Raiders, there’s good reason to be excited about the outlook for the rest of the season. CJ Beathard’s replacement at quarterback provided a much-needed spark to a team that seemed destined to lose out through 2018 - albeit against a team that is probably destined to lose out through 2018. Is it too soon off the high of the victory to declare the win “fool’s gold” and resume keeping both eyes on the offseason? Long answer short, we’ve just got to wait.The Raiders defense is bad. Like, really bad. Unbelievably bad. Their coverage of the passing game was horrible - frequently blown coverages aside, the Raiders seemed to have difficulty scheming their players into position, or making plays when the chance was available. Going simply by the eye-test and a 24+ hour memory of the game, it seemed like the Raiders were consistently sending a minimum of five defenders at the undrafted QB who was playing his first game in the NFL. Obviously, it’s not an ill-advised strategy, but the anemic Raiders pass rush (which had the potential to be gamebreakingly devastating just a few short season ago by teaming Khalil Mack with Aldon Smith) relied on volume of bodies, because they just didn’t have the juice to win on individual matchups. This strategy left the secondary undermanned, which likely contributed to Mullens’ big day through the air. Credit is certainly due to Mullens for beating the blitz regularly, and criticism is more than deserved for the Raiders secondary who seemed out-of-position throughout much of the game.Back to the thesis - was the W against the Raiders fool’s gold? Mullens put together some solid tape in his first start, but we’re left with a chicken-and-egg conundrum. Is Mullens’ success due to innate intangibles that will translate from opponent to opponent, or did he manage to Matt Flynn himself into relevance by the fortune of being slotted in for Raiders week? I wish I had a better answer for you, but we’re stuck with “sample size!” as perhaps the best answer right now. Considering that Kyle Shanahan has yet to name a starting QB for next week, there exists a chance that this sample size may not increase for quite some time.Week 9 review | Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area | Biderman [url=http://www.49erslockerroom.com/authentic-deion-sanders-jersey]Deion Sanders Jersey White[/url] , Ninerswire | Biderman (2), Ninerswire | Madson, Ninerswire | Madson (2), NinerswireRaheem Mostert, Emmanuel Moseley to IR | Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area | KNBR Staff | Biderman, Ninerswire | Madson, NinerswireNick Mullens by the numbers | Johnson, NBC Sports Bay AreaKyle Shanahan on why Nick Mullens went undrafted | KNBR StaffGeorge Kittle by the numbers | Johnson, NBC Sports Bay AreaGeorge Kittle’s breakout season | Almquist, KNBRMike McGlinchey on the coin toss that sent him to the 49ers | Chan, NBC Sports Bay AreaKyle Shanahan waiting to decide who starts at QB next | Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area | Biderman, Ninerswire
