Tavecchio Heading into week nine, there are three teams who remain with one
win.Two of those teams, the Raiders and the 49ers will square off in primetime
on Thursday night football.Currently, the 49ers would selected second in the
draft followed by the Raiders in the third position.The game is being touted as
the “Bosa Bowl ,”
in reference to Ohio State defensive end, Nick Bosa who many believe to be the
consensus number one pick in the 2019 draft.It’s possible the 49ers will be
without current starting quarterback, C.J. Beathard who injured his wrist and
thumb in week eight, both injuries occurred to his throwing hand.If Beathard is
unable to go, second year quarterback, Nick Mullens will get the start.Let’s
take a look at what coaches from both teams are saying about the Thursday night
match up.Head Coach Jon Gruden, his opinion on the 49ers.“Yeah, sure did.They’re
one win record is not where they want it to be.I give C.J. Beathard a lot of
credit.He is one tough quarterback.He is a tough kid.I’ve seen him get hit and
keep playing hard.They’ve got a creative offense under Kyle Shanahan.They can
score points.They can run the football Oakland Raiders

, that I do know.Defensively, they’ve got a lot of
high first-round picks in front.It’ll be a challenge for us.”Defensive
Coordinator Paul Guenther, on what he knows about Nick Mullens.“I took a look at
his preseason. He’s obviously been there for two years so he understands the
system. He’s out of Southern Miss. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who
is playing quarterback. We’ve got to play better. What we showed on Sunday was
unacceptable. I told you a few weeks back, I’m not used to giving up 42 points.
This is new to me. The players have to understand that we have to play better
team defense, we have to stop the run better. It’s not a missed assignment
issue. It’s more of a physical issue. We lost leverage in coverage several
times. We’re supposed to be outside leverage of a guy. The guy beats you on an
outside route and that stuff can’t happen. I showed them those plays and I said
until we fix this stuff, we’re going to continue to get it. To me, who we’re
playing against is the least of my concern.”49ers Head Coach Oakland Raiders
, Kyle Shanahan, on his evaluation of Derek Carr when he
entered the draft.“I was a big fan of Derek, I think like everyone was.There was
a number of quarterbacks that came out that year.I remember flying down there to
Fresno, we worked him out, a number of us.We went to dinner with him.I know his
brother because I coached in Houston with his brother for one year.So great
family and a great player.”
