The 49ers cornerback rotation will continue

The San Francisco
49ers have found themselves shuffling their secondary with some regularity in
recent weeks. Injuries have been a major issue ,
with Richard Sherman, Jaquiski Tartt, and Adrian Colbert all missing time due to
injuries. Additionally, ineffectiveness at times from Ahkello Witherspoon and
Jimmie Ward have resulted in some changes.This past weekend, the 49ers rotated
Greg Mabin into the cornerback position in the second half. He played 29
snaps Cheap Jimmy

, and defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said on
Thursday that will continue this week. The coaching staff was pleased with his
work in practice thus far and earned an opportunity in their eyes.The coaches
were impressed with the whole picture, with Saleh complimenting his physicality,
competitive toughness, and communication skills. He thought it showed up in the
game tape, and even though Mabin gave one up ,
Saleh it was well contested.One big problem the defense has had is the turnover
in trying to figure out how fits where. Saleh is hoping one of the cornerbacks
can, “grab hold of [the job] and have a stranglehold on it and not let it go.”
He described it as being something for the entire defense where, it’s a
challenge, “to grab your job by the neck and choke it out.”When you have
constant turnover on defense, it becomes difficult for the unit to gel. Each
player always has their own assignment to handle Youth Weston

, but there is a certain chemistry that is critical
for a defense to gel into a cohesive dominant unit. Each player needs to step up
when it come to the team’s tackling issues, but the overall defensive
performance could very well come together once they can get a clear starting
lineup and rotation sorted out.Live updates from Robert Saleh’s Week 2 press
