How far are we from getting Our defense to play Like San Fran?

Recommended Posts

It's a pass rush, Tackles who can actually push upfront...quick, sure tackling backers(which we're closest to having with the re insertion of Beas)

A secondary which can also lay the fuging lumber will also help...none of our guys can do that.

Interior pass rush. San Frans big guys were pushing the pocket really well. Drew Brees is a master at avoiding the edge rush if that's all that is brought at him. I think his size really becomes a liability when you push his O-line back into him like the 49ers did. Our linebackers are good although I think we need to find Thomas Davis's replacement. If we can find a true interior presence I think it would do wonders for our defense like Kris Jenkins used too.

how many free agents did San Fran pick up this year?

The ones I know of:

Braylon Edwards - bad signing

David Akers- great signing

Carlos Rogers- great signing

Johnathon Goodwin- from New Orleans, good signing

Donte Whitner- great signing

That is how you supplement through FA.

Brees is known for tearing apart blitzes and this game further drove home that the way you beat him is by collapsing the pocket so your back 7 can sit in coverage and choke out all the screens and dink and dunk stuff they like to run when they're not able to stretch the field. Admittedly, Brees passed for over 400 yards but it came on like 60+ attempts. The guy is a nightmare no matter what you do but he can be held (relatively) in check.

The 49ers also could have blown this game wide open if they would've capitalized on the turnovers. It should have never been this close with the way their defense was playing.

Tackling. Period.

NO made big plays when tackles were missed, didn't do anything when tackles were made.

We'll get there. Rivera had a top ranked defense in San Diego. He will bring in guys and make cuts until he has assembled his perfect defense. Not sure how long it will take. I think we will make huge strides this offseason.

I know man... We had a chance at Rodgers. Sometimes I wish our FO had more balls.

It hurts every time I think about it. One of the many reasons why I don't like Hurney.

i think we'll be a lot closer to that next year than people think.

getting key guys healthy is key.

we'll probably see an upgrade at CB and FS. hopefully one at DT and TD's replacement will be brought in as well.

once we have that and better coaching in the secondary plus a full offseason and a year of experience under these guys belts we'll be solid.

i think one thing that people don't realize is quite a few of the guys who will be considered depth next year will have had tons of PT and even starting experience. that means quality and experienced depth and a solid rotation.

i'm pumped to see what happens with this defense next year. rivera has a history of turning defenses around and i'm confident he'll do it with this one.

i don't know that we'll be top 5, but i can see top 10-15.
