Nick Mullens back in starting role for 49ers
By Cam Inman, Mercury News
Nick Mullens is the 49ers’ starting quarterback again, nearly two years after “Mullens Mania” enlivened a fan base desperate for a sign of hope.
“I’ve been training Nick for a long time, and I actually trained (the Giants’) Daniel Jones a long time, too. They train a lot together,” said Morris, a former Ole Miss quarterback who founded the QB Country training program.
“I think the world of Nick and couldn’t be more excited for him. He always plays clutch.”
Morris’ focus has been on “twitch and arm strength.” That means Mullins’ twitch with his feet and movement in the pocket before his release, and enhancing arm strength with exercises, plus the “sequencing” to create chemistry between his feet, hips, shoulders and release.
“It helps Nick get the most out of each throw,” Morris said. “He’s really worked hard, grown and improved each of the last four years.”
