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

68 posts in this topic

Coach conditioning....it's coming...roster trims and new personnel. Last year was utilizing what we had. This year will start the move towards what we need. I totally trust that Rivera can put a top 5 defense on the field. Even more important? Put a "D" on the field that will win our division.

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

Their defense was already very good before Harbaugh. I think they added a couple guys but really the team is just stacked at every unit. Secondary might be kinda weak but it's still serviceable and not a liability.

That LB unit though..... fuuuuuu, soooo good. Willis is the best 3-4 ILB and Bowman isn't far behind him(prob top 5).

A very big NT, Draft Coples, Get a Corner to play opposite of Gamble and sign Laron Landry in free agency to be our Donte Whitner. That would be a pretty scary defense. Signing Laron Landry won't happen though.

Please stop with Coples thing. He sucks even UNC fans feel like this. He does more whodini's then Pep with none of Pep's talent. I hope we are not the team that falls for that trap.

I did get pretty tired of seeing Carlos Rogers highlights this year after our FO said "There are no CBs available different than what we have"

He's the best D lineman in the draft. The team might have to bite the bullet and take him because he's the best player available at a need position. If we draft a defensive player in the top 10, It's going to be Claiborne, Kirkpatrick or Coples.

brockers > coples.

coples would have to put on 15 pounds and play DT full time for him to be useful in the pros and he also isn't known for being a 100% all in kind of guy.

sorry...not wanting that. not in the first round. esp. not in the top 10.

let someone else try to motivate him to stay motivated.
