49ers LB Fred Warner named NFC Defensive Player of the Month for November

Dec 5, 2019 at 7:04 AM--


The NFL announced that San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month for November. The latest honor comes following the team's 20-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.

Warner was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week in Week 12 after a win over the Green Bay Packers. He is the first 49ers linebacker to earn Player of the Month honors since NaVorro Bowman (December 2013). Rookie defensive end Nick Bosa earned the award in October.


Warner had 33 tackles, three sacks, a pass defensed, and two forced fumbles during the month of November. He racked up 11 tackles and two passes defensed against the Ravens on Sunday and now has 92 tackles, three sacks, six passes defensed, and three forced fumbles through 12 games this season.

"I thought he played as good as any of the linebackers that I've seen play them on tape and as it got going, all of them, that's what I meant by settling down a little bit," head coach Kyle Shanahan said this week when asked about Warner's performance against the Ravens. "They were good in the beginning, but they got better as the game went because the more you see that stuff, the more you get a feel for it. When you've got a guy like Fred, who's very natural at things and football comes to him the right way, he just got better as the game went."

The 49ers made Warner a third-round draft pick out of BYU in 2018.

For third-straight year, Jimmy Garoppolo named as 49ers player who will have biggest impact on season

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo may have endured a lot of criticism this offseason — you know, if he listened to the outside noise. He doesn't. Garoppolo seems focused on doing what he needs to do to be ready for the 2020 season rather than dwell on February's Super Bowl collapse. "You haven't seen any crazy media lash-outs from him, or him be down on himself, or anything like that," fullback Kyle Juszczyk said in May. "It's just Jim. He comes to work every day, works his butt off, has the same demeanor every day. The outside noise, it truly doesn't seem to affect him." That's good because there is a lot of pressure on Garoppolo. He'll be

NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger joined 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and explained why he believes the reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa, can be even better in 2020. How much better? Baldinger believes Bosa is a candidate for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award. "I think, honestly, in talking to players that have played with Nick Bosa in practice, and talking to oppositions that have had to block him," Baldinger said on the Bonta, Steiny & Guru show, "I believe -- and I was with a general manager last night talking about pass rushers and, specifically, Nick Bosa -- I think he's got a very good chance to be the defensive MVP of this league. I think he has that kind of talent. "And
