White Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , he prepared for the moment he'd play in a loud road stadium by downloading crowd noise and blaring it on his headphones as he practiced calling out plays in his apartment.That preparation will be put to the test this week when Mullens makes his second career road start for the San Francisco 49ers at Seattle in front of the loudest road crowd in the league."I've played in a lot of the most prominent stadiums in the country as far as college football goes," said Mullens, who pointed to games in college at Nebraska, Alabama and LSU as the most challenging crowds he's faced."Obviously, it has the reputation that it has in CenturyLink, and it's going to be cool to play there."Mullens' first road start for the 49ers (2-9) wasn't a successful one. He went 18 for 32 for 221 yards with one touchdown, two interceptions and four sacks in a 27-9 loss to Tampa Bay last week. There were a handful of issues with hearing the play call from coach Kyle Shanahan in his helmet headset and Mullens had to rush to the sideline once to get the play and burn two timeouts on other occasions.Mullens had his lowest marks in yardage, completion percentage and passer rating out of his three career starts as the Niners struggled to get much of anything going against a defense that has been the worst in the league at defending against the pass."It was very frustrating," Mullens said. "We just never got on a rhythm. But, you watch the film and you see where you can improve and that's why we're so excited about this week."Mullens had a record-setting debut against Oakland 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 their first career game. He also had the most efficient debut since the merger for a player with at least 20 attempts, posting a 151.9 rating in the 34-3 win.He followed that up by throwing four interceptions and two touchdowns in losses to the Giants and Tampa Bay and now must face a much more difficult defense and a more challenging environment in Seattle."I think Nick handles pressure pretty well," Shanahan said. "He handled it well in Tampa. We just didn't play very good. So, there's a difference in that. Nick's been the same guy since he's been here. I don't think he's going to freak out just because it's loud. Whether you do good or bad doesn't mean that you freaked out or you were poised. It's harder. It'll be more of a challenge. We'll practice all week at it. The better he plays, the better we play around him, the easier the challenge will be."NOTES: WR Marquise Goodwin remains away from the team to tend to an undisclosed personal matter. ... C Weston Richburg (knee) and T Joe Staley (veteran) also missed practice, while DB D.J. Reed (foot) will miss the game this week.Golden Nuggets: First Day of the Rest of the Season Good morning folks. Now that we’ve had some time to sleep on it Youth Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey , I think most of us can firmly say that yesterday sucked. Ordinarily, the morning after a loss is a great time to go after silver linings, and shift focus to the week at hand. However, yesterday was a colossal kick in the rear, and I wouldn’t blame a single one of you fine people for not being over it. Naturally, I’d hope for the same from you. It’s going to be a hot-take kind of week, and you’ve got my blessing to express yourselves (within prescribed site decorum, of course).First things first, Jimmy Garoppolo sustained a fourth quarter knee injury that is expected to be serious. Later today, he’ll meet with the team doctors for an MRI, at which time the severity of the injury will become more clear. However, the Kyle Shanahan has already announced that the team fears a torn ACL, and has already addressed his confidence in CJ Beathard as the next man up. In other major injury news, Richard Sherman will also be meeting with team doctors later today for an MRI on a calf injury he sustained in the second quarter. Although he was later seen in a walking boot, the early diagnosis has pointed towards a calf injury, and thankfully, not an Achilles rupture. The game itself wasn’t much better , as the 49ers took a colossal whooping in the first half, giving up 35 points, and only managing to scrape together 10 of their own in an obvious catch-up kind of game. Although the defense looked fairly serviceable against the run (despite two ground TDs), they were annihilated through the air early and often. Luckily for the box score fans, garbage time started early and the 49ers were able to compile some success after the half. Into the fourth quarter, Jimmy Garoppolo had driven into the Chiefs redzone, threatening to bring the lead to just one touchdown. He was injured on a scramble that will likely be hotly debated for some time - whether the injury was non-contact or due to an ill-advised cutback. On CJ Beathard’s first play in relief of Groptimus Dime, he threw the ugliest pass I’ve ever seen into the arms of his former Iowa teammate George Kittle for a score. Because it’s clear at this point that the Football Deities have it out for 49ers fans, the refs called it back on a universally-panned offensive pass interference call. This was one of the more deflating games in recent memory, and it’ll be very important to see how the team responds to this type of crushing adversity. The 49ers play the Los Angeles Chargers of San Diego next Sunday.Game in ReviewWeek 3 analysis || Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area | Almquist, KNBR | Lowder, Ninerswire | Madson, NinerswireWeek 3 review || Biderman, Sac Bee | Associated Press via ESPN | Madson, NinerswireInjuries, Roster & Depth Chart49ers confident in CJ Beathard to step in || Maiocco White Richard Sherman Jersey , NBC Sports Bay Area | Almquist, KNBR | Wagoner, ESPN | Madson, NinerswireRichard Sherman to undergo MRI on calf on Monday || Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area | Montero, KNBR | Madson, NinerswireJimmy Garoppolo sustains serious injury || Ochoa, 4th & 9 | Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area | Montero, KNBR | Almquist, KNBR | Biderman, Sac Bee | Wagoner, ESPN | Madson, Ninerswire“Next man up” is a hollow platitude || Ratto, NBC Sports Bay Area
