The San Francisco 49ers beat the Detroit LIons 30-27 in an ugly win. It is still a win Quarterback Nick Mullens Jersey , but the team has a lot to work on, none more than cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon who had a very bad day in coverage. While Richard Sherman was not targeted near as often, Witherspoon was picked on all afternoon, leading to the 49ers benching him late in the 4th quarter. Sherman has been seen as Witherspoon’s mentor and was asked about what may be Witherspoon’s worst day as a pro in his post-game press conference. Sherman said whether he had a good game or a bad game, Witherspoon has 24 hours and then it’s time to move on.It’s not going to get any easier for Witherspoon. The 49ers are traveling to Kansas City to face the Chiefs. A team whose aerial attack is nothing short of elite. If they can’t get the ball to Tyreek Hill, they can elect to go towards Travis Kelce or Sammy Watkins instead and achieve the same results. Sherman is going to figure into the Chiefs’ game plan as will Witherspoon. Witherspoon no doubt has a chance to bounce back, but no matter who the 49ers put him on next Sunday, he’s going to have his work cut out for him. “I believe in him,” Sherman said later on. “I believe in him, I think he believes in himself Nick Mullens Jersey , there’s just simple mistakes.”John Lynch addresses Josh Gordon pursuit and why 49ers did not make a trade The New England Patriots did a deal with the Cleveland Browns this week in which they acquired wide receiver Josh Gordon and a seventh round pick in exchange for a fifth round pick. It remains to be seen how much playing time Gordon will see this weekend or even the rest of this year, but if he is able to play, his talent could be a huge upgrade for the Patriots.San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch said over the weekend that the 49ers had called the Browns and were doing their due diligence. Both Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have regularly talked about considering any option that can potentially improve the team, and Gordon was no different.When word got out that Patriots completed a trade for Gordon, plenty of 49ers fans were upset. The 49ers have some intriguing wide receivers, but there are question marks around the group. Lynch and Shanahan have defended their receivers regularly, and have made it clear this is the group they want to build around.On Thursday, Lynch made an appearance on KNBR, and he was asked about the deal and what kind of value they put on players when considering trades. He did not come right out and say the exact reasons the 49ers did not do the deal, but he offered a big hint.I did some quick research Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , and three 49ers coaches spent time with the Cleveland Browns at the same time as Josh Gordon. That includes head coach Kyle Shanahan (Browns OC in 2014), tight ends coach and assistant head coach Jon Embree (Browns TE coach in 2013), and wide receivers coach Mike McDaniel (Browns WR coach in 2013). Lynch’s comments would seem to make it pretty clear one or more of these three did not think Gordon’s potential was worth the off-field issues.Some of the complaints about not trading for Gordon came up in part because it came so soon after Khalil Mack was traded to the Chicago Bears. Whenever a big name comes available, fans are quick to call for a deal to be done. Lynch said that doing these kinds of deals depends a lot on where your team is at.Jimmy Garoppolo was a blockbuster deal, and maybe we see more in the future. In the meantime, Lynch understands fans are going to push for these kinds of deals. In fact, his own family members get in on the action, regardless of whether a given player is actually available.
