Defensive post-game analysis (Week 1)

I gotta give my props to the entire D, but Patrick Willis' dominance in the middle (and the rest of the field) is freaky scary, and is just ABSOLUTELY the BEST IN THE LEAGUE, hands down.

I can definitely see a top 5 defense forming.
d was very impressive. warner looked scared most of the game

Willis:
13 Tackles, 11 solo
2 pass defensed
1 int

I think he's going to have his best year so far. He has enough experience now that he should have about ZERO weakness in his game this year. That's going to be big. Maybe scary big.

Something else...I think KB is going to factor in this year. We won't see it in his stats, but I think we are going to end up seeing it in Smith's, Haralson's, Lawson's and Willis's.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe he was the one who made it possible for Smith to make that game ending sack. That was a beautiful play, Smith and KB pulled that off in textbook fashion. I haven't watched the game in replay yet, so I could be wrong.
A few things I really about our D today:

PASS RUSH! (oh how I missed you!)

Haralson looking like a beast

Ray McDonald getting a lot of playing time, and bringing a lot of heat. I've really like this guy for a while and was hoping to see more of him.

Bly as a nickleback. I think this might be his best role. He's not as dependable one on one against elite WRs, but as a 5th DB his gambling style really fits. I could see him getting a few INTs this year, even without starting.

Willis. Ok, this is obvious, but man that guy is amazing.
not only our D making stops and maintaining good field position....but how about Andy Lee booming it from our own endzone for what seemed like 70 yards???

who's with me? Andy Lee is the man!
The D' most def' kept us in the game.They were phenominal. Great Victory for the NINERS. I was at the game and our D shut the crowd up so bad that at the 3rd quarter some fans just left and a couple more was cussing mad.Our D' showed up. The 3rd quarter was scary but we pulled it out.
Shawntae spencer did an awesome job today. Looks like he going back to his good form.

nicely surprised by our coverage our and pressure on Warner (who is a quick releaser don't forget)
but don't put haralson on pass coverage : the guy has not enough speed !

He doesn't have speed, but I think you are referring to one specific play when the defense was defending after the offense's 3rd 3n'out.

They were really tired by that time.

Haralson looked gassed on that play, and the RB was able to get around the corner on him.

But when the defense was rested, Haralson was just fine in coverage.

i think it was just a bad matchup, hightower has some wheels. he out ran willis' tackles once

who's KB? Kevan Barlow?

Defense rocked plain and simple. they excelled in all phases. they put pressure on the passer, stopped the run, limited the pass attack, forced turnovers, did not commit excessive penalties, and did not make many mistakes. Manusky had dem boys ready 2day

oh word...thanks! I didn't even notice him in the game, hopefully that changed in the future.
I mean wow, you got to give a lot of credit to him for shutting down any deep oppurtunities the QB might have been looking for. I didnt see any deep throws except for that 40 yarder. What tells me he did some work out there is that Kurt constantly had to buy time and hardly even threw anywhere near him. We havent seen that for years!

He was in part responsible for Nate giving up the long bomb to Urban. If he was slow in his coverage that could've been prevented. But other than that he was better than Roman for sure

Was glad to see him out there & hope he continues his play as season goes on.
