The players don't gain a measurable
ability. Singletary has spoke about being physical in all facets of the game and creating leverage on every play. If a player can't handle a physical practice, it's likely he can't handle playing physical in a live game. You simply can't say
you'll be physical and then it'll just happen. You've got to practice being physical.
Also, when did you get the idea that the 49ers had lingering injuries all season? Aside from Nate Clements, no 49er missed significant time (more than one game) on the defensive side of the ball.
