Tom Rathman Color Rush Jersey
Sherman believes now that the 49ers have a pass-rush Kyle Juszczyk Jersey , things will be much different defensively"The secondary for the San Francisco 49ers have been a hot topic since they didn’t address the position until the sixth round in the 2019 NFL Draft. I don’t think the team needs to sign a safety now that the draft is over. Cornerback Richard Sherman told Chris Biderman of the Sacramento Bee that the secondary wasn’t an issue last year.The immaturity and youth in the secondary were apparent last year. Guys didn’t seem comfortable or confident in what they were asked to do. When the injury bug hits you, that’s what happens. Players are forced to play that probably shouldn’t be out there.In 2018 the 49ers lost six one-possession games. Tough to win when you can’t get off the field or keep the offense out of the end zone. The Niners defense was 26th in red zone scoring percentage and 21st in opponents third-down rate.Sherman had no issues saying who was at fault:He’s not wrong.General manager John Lynch said, “two things we talked about as soon as we got here was finding a quarterback and finding the people that knock him down.” They traded for Jimmy Garoppolo. One offseason later they traded for Dee Ford and drafted Nick Bosa. Pairing those two with Deforest Buckner Tom Rathman Color Rush Jersey , and there’s your pass-rush.The 2019 season is going to be full of storylines. There are plenty of pieces in place for the 49ers to be successful. There are also a few different things that could happen, and we look back on this season wondering “why didn’t they address this in the offseason?” The 49ers defense set a couple of dubious NFL records this season.They set the record for fewest takeaways by forcing just seven turnovers. Two of those takeaways were interceptions and that’s also a record low for an NFL defense. They also finished 28th in the league in points allowed, which added up to a question for head coach Kyle Shanahan about sticking with defensive coordinator Robert Saleh.Shanahan noted the team’s improvement in run defense while explaining that he expects Saleh back along with the rest of this year’s coaching staff.“I’m with him every day , so I know how good of a coach he is,” Shanahan said, via the . “I know how he is schematically. I know how he is dealing with the players. I know what he can handle just with his personality and how smart he is.”One way to force more turnovers would be to improve the pass rush and General Manager John Lynch indicated that will be a priority this offseason. He said there are “good pass rushers in this draft” and having the second overall pick gives the Niners a good chance of landing one.
