San Francisco 49ers - Interviewing Defensive Coordinator candidates (12 Viewers)

And lol@theEaglesteamthreadtitle. Since I’m not going into another teams thread. Makes this somehow even sweeter to me. All of their disillusionments that they were dominating that playoff game before we were playing it with a QB with no arms will finally be put to rest when we bury them in their place this post season. They’ll always have that game to hold on to I suppose.
come on - you know that was a joke lol.
Of course I do. Edit: that’s why I put lol. Doesn’t change the rest of my post.

I like your team but I didn’t hear a single Eagles fan (I don’t go into other threads) mention that game may have been different if Brock didn’t get hurt when he did. Only that we were clearly dominated start to finish. News flash - teams have trouble competing in the NFL without their starting QBs. It will be settled this year. I can’t wait for it.

Good luck til then.
I was just responding to your reaction on that thread title. Nothing more, nothing less. The title had nothing to do with last season’s game. Clearly that was a joke. And I’m not even an Eagles fan.
 
This team is just so ****ing good!! Please, just please, no injuries to Brock, Deebo, CMC, Aiyuk, Trent, Bosa, or Warner!!! Anyone else hurts, but those guys, please stay healthy.

And wtf is going on with Armstead, looks how he looked a few years ago, he’s been a monster!

ETA: Kittle

ETA 2: we’re so freaking stacked!
 
Woke up feeling goooooood!

Seriously, if we stay healthy, who's gonna beat us?

I'm putting the Eagles in the rear view for now, maybe we see them again down the road, but until then, it's all about the next game. Bring on the Seachickens!!

This team is special, guys. Enjoy the ride!
 
Barrows said this morning that Philly fans near the press box were opening up the windows in the box to harass the Niners best reporters. Classy!
 
Last post about the Eagles, I thought this was funny.

Seth Joyner GOES IN on #Eagles DB’s: “They are as disinterested in tackling someone as a young kid coming out to play football for the first time.. They don’t wanna hit nobody.. They don’t wanna tackle nobody. Tackling is an attitude.. They don’t want any parts of it.. They just wanna push you out of bounds, or trip you up.. They want no parts of it.”



They sure did make some business decisions when it came to tackling Deebo. 🤣
 
Man I knew Deebo was fast, but he looked like he was on another level yesterday. Great game. I still wish he wouldn't take plays off when he doesn't think he's getting the ball. I noticed a few times he was jogging on his routes, and on one play he didn't move at all off the line, just turned and watched as the other receivers all ran routes.
 
Lol, this guy's still trying. What a waste of a first round pick:

Former 49ers’ first-round pick Reuben Foster, who has played for the USFL’s Pittsburgh Maulers after spending time in the NFL with San Francisco and Washington, is scheduled to work out Wednesday for the Miami Dolphins.
 
Injury update:

Shanahan provided updates during Monday's conference call, sharing that Dwelley sustained a high-ankle sprain and will miss multiple weeks.

Arik Armstead emerged with foot and knee issues. "We're still gathering more information," Shanahan said of Armstead's situation. "He came in with that this morning. We'll have more on that probably for you guys on Wednesday."

Guard Spencer Burford emerged with a knee injury, one different from the knee issue that sidelined him on Thanksgiving night against the Seattle Seahawks.

"We'll see how he responds this week," Shanahan noted. "He still has a chance to go [this weekend]."

Cornerback Darrell Luter Jr. is dealing with a hamstring injury and will likely miss the upcoming game against the Seattle Seahawks. Wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud remains day-to-day with a rib injury.
 
The defense has played much better since Wilks moved to the sideline. And after listening to Bosa's post game interview, it makes a lot more sense about something that was bugging me during the game. It looked like Young and Bosa were just bull rushing straight ahead every snap, and not really driving hard to get around them, but that was exactly the plan. Love that they all bought in and it worked great.

Read about this on Twitter, it's crazy how they weren't really going for sacks, but it worked.

Shanahan told me after the game that the idea to rush with the idea to contain Hurts goes against "the DNA" of a line that prides itself on racing to the quarterback. The amount of discipline to do that for an entire game is hard to quantify. As DE Nick Bosa explained, the goal was to prevent Hurts from having any sort of escape route up the middle. So any time he ran, he had to get outside of the set edges and then work his way upfield, which by then other defenders could rally to the ball. Their longest run was 7 yards.

As Bosa explained, that approach often meant rushing for around 10 seconds which can take a toll on the defense, which is why you saw so much rotating throughout the game. The hope was to get enough push so Hurts would drop his eyes from down the field and then to pressure him from there so by the time he looked back up, there was somebody in his face. The result was just 3 sacks but a whopping 46 pressures, their most in a game since ESPN began tracking pressures in 2009. That's the most times Hurts has been pressured in his career and it came with only a 12% blitz rate, the lowest he's faced this season. Hurts ended up attempting 16 passes from outside the pocket, a career high. He went 7-of-16 on those attempts.

The approach had to frustrate the Eagles OL, which ostensibly played well, albeit against a DL that wasn't necessarily trying to just get sacks.

Watching the game, i was thinking WTF as Bosa seemed to bull rush every down. Makes more sense now but seemed to be playing into Lane Johnson’s strengths. As soon as he made a spin move, he almost got to Hurts and Hurts threw the ball away.
 
Read a stat that Purdy only had 4 throws in this game that went 15 yards or longer in the air. Can't confirm if true, but crazy if it is.
 
The numbers are there.

Joe Montana’s 1989 MVP season:

13 games started/played
3521 yds
26 TD
8 INT
6.7 TD% (league leading)
70.2 CMP% ( league leading)

Brock Purdy’s 2023 season:

Thru 12 games
3185 yds
23 TD
6 INT
6.9 TD% (league leading)
70.2 CMP% (league leading)

And Purdy ain't done yet.
 
Funnily enough, the inability of Jimmy G to stay healthy got Trey Lance an opportunity. Then Lance finally gets his chance and gets hurt, and then the inability of Jimmy G to stay healthy gets Purdy an opportunity which then costs Lance his. Much like his time here, Jimmy G giveth, and then Jimmy G taketh away.
 
Per Rapsheet: Long-time versatile DB Logan Ryan has signed with the #49ers, a potential big-time addition for December and their playoff run. Most recently with the #Bucs and #Giants, Ryan lands in SF.


Lombardi:

This is about as significant as a signing can be at this point of the year.

Biggest fact to consider: Logan Ryan has been a very solid tackler throughout his entire NFL career.

The 49ers' one weakness at Philly: Tackling from the safety spot (both Ji'Ayir Brown and Tashaun Gipson Sr.)

Ryan has a career missed tackle rate of only 8.7%. He's played every single position in the secondary, has 19 INTs to his name and even notched a 5-sack season.

Started his NFL career as a cornerback before moving to safety in 2020. He's 32 years old now and has been durable over his NFL career — the only season significantly compromised by injury was 2022.

Experience across all DB positions, 19 career INTs and a very solid tackling track record — all huge selling points for the 49ers.
 
The 49ers 2022 draft started with:

DE Drake Jackson (round 2)
RB Ty Davis Price (round 3)
WR Danny Gray (round 3)

They got Burford, Womack, Kalia Davis and Purdy after that, so they salvaged it, but man. 3 players making zero impact right there
 
Purdy has MVP Favorite..hahahahahahahahahahah

There is no way he is getting the MVP.. You put him on Tennessee and they may be winless.. Put Pickett on SF and they are still a playoff team.
This.

He's not even in the conversation, much less in the running. This seems like a "I wish this was true" from the OP.
 
If you put Brock Purdy on the Serbian Men’s Water Polo team, they go from 4th in the world to number 1 instantly! He’s just that good!

ETA: meant this as a quote to our astute guests above, but it didn’t quote them for whatever reason.

Tell me more about how he’s not in the conversation.
Wait...one guy's opinion on a site no one can read w/out a subscription? That's your case for Purdy?

Go look at the sportsbooks’ lines. It’s highly likely they know something you don’t.

Currently +350.

The national NFL reporter at the Athletic having a conversation about his case isn’t enough to establish he’s in the conversation? Think carefully about your rebuttal here.

He's a betting favorite, not sure why that's so hard to accept. He prob won't win, but he's definitely in the conversation right now.

Here's the first 5 sites that pop up when I Google NFL MVP odds:

FSU was betting favorite to make the college football playoffs.. Purdy might be on the ballot, he may get votes, but he isn't winning it.

If he gets it, the award is a complete and utter joke. You can argue he isn't the MVP of his own team.

Funny you mention this.

If you go check the college football thread, I laid the hammer down on “will FSU make the college football playoffs” +350 No
 
Purdy is a fluke!
Anyone could do what he’s doing with the team around him!
Purdy can’t possibly win the MVP!

lol. Maybe he’ll be decent at this football thing at some point.

What’s that leave for him next? Purdy isn’t the greatest QB of all time?

No - Pickett plays scared, has horrible accuracy, no pocket presence, noodle arm and is a single read QB. He literally has zero good attributes as a QB. I got laughed at in the Steelers thread when I asked if his ceiling was Cousins (on the aftermath of his only decent game). Purdy on the other hand has all the good attributes with the exception of a strong arm. And I’m a freaking Steelers fan!

It doesn't Matter, All he would have to do is throw quick passes to CMAC, Deebo, and Aiyuk. They all can go the distance every time they get the ball;. Plus he would have a HOF TE, and a better line.

Pickett's numbers would be a ton better in SF.

Purdy;'s numbers would be nowhere near what they are if he was behind the Steelers line.
