Mariota apologizes to reporters after being scolded by his mom

Mariota apologizes to reporters after being scolded by his mom”

Last season, the 49ers allowed 4.8 yards per rush and 166 per game.

By Wednesday, Mariota began his post-practice session with reporters by first apologizing for his terseness during Sunday's post-game press conference. They are ranked seventh in the league in yards per carry (4.4) and only one team, the New Orleans Saints, have more rushing touchdowns (NO - 19, TEN - 17). "It's what you do on your own that will really make a difference in your career". "Obviously, if you can stop the run, you can get after the passer". Mariota was just somewhat terse in his responses, which is understandable given that his two second-half interceptions led to a loss that took Tennessee out of first place in the AFC South.

With the Titans leading and fewer than four minutes to play, Henry has run for 201 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries this season.

"It's the whole mindset of our scheme is to eliminate something first", Saleh said. "I know not everybody that was there is here. Having gone against Mariota in the past at Jacksonville, he is a very talented quarterback and I know we as a defense are going to have our hands full and we're excited for the challenge".

"They have a large, probably the biggest run-game playbook I've ever seen on tape", Saleh said.

"Whenever it is one-on-one, or even zone, you have to win", Davis said. "They do everything they can to get you out of your gap and get you confused on what your responsibility is".

"Everybody just focus this week on playing the San Francisco 49ers".

The Titans struggled on offense in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. Saleh discussed what makes Walker so unsafe. "He's a special talent", Saleh said. "DeMarco was running effectively, and the way that we had it built, again, he's still our guy, and Derrick is the guy that will come in when he needs a break. I feel like our guys are ready".

The 49ers defense is up for a different type of challenge Sunday against the Titans, who feature a dynamic rushing attack with DeMarco Murray and 2015 Heisman Trophy victor Derrick Henry.
