Gus Bradley won’t join 49ers, agrees to go to Chargers

Jan 20, 2017 at 7:12 PM--


Former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley has agreed to become the defensive coordinator of the Los Angeles Chargers, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.


The former Jaguars coach originally only wanted to join the San Francisco 49ers if they hired Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tom Cable to be their new head coach. The 49ers are expected to hire Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. The 49ers upped their offer to Bradley and the decision reportedly came down to the Chargers and the 49ers.

In 2011 under Bradley, the Seahawks defense ranked 7th in points allowed, 9th in total yards allowed, 11th against the pass, and 15th against the run. In 2012, the unit ranked 1st in points allowed, 4th in total yards allowed, 6th against the pass, and 10th against the run.

This comes after the 49ers inquired about possibly bringing back Vic Fangio, who served as the team's defensive coordinator under Jim Harbaugh and currently holds the same role with the Chicago Bears. Since he is currently under contract with Chicago, the Bears said no.

Baldy: 49ers won't regret trading DeForest Buckner if Javon Kinlaw is healthy

Fans have been somewhat critical of the San Francisco 49ers' decision to trade away defensive tackle DeForest Buckner and use the draft pick acquired to add a less-expensive replacement in Javon Kinlaw. Buckner went on to earn first-team All-Pro honors in his first season with the Indianapolis Colts, recording 9.5 sacks along the way. Meanwhile, statistically, Kinlaw's rookie campaign was underwhelming, producing just 1.5 sacks along an injury-plagued defensive front. However, the massive defender has shown flashes, which bodes well for his outlook. One respected analyst, Brian Baldinger of NFL Media, believes fans shouldn't regret San Francisco's decision to move on from Buckner. He has a lot of confidence that Kinlaw is gearing up for a breakout sophomore NFL



2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.
