On Tuesday, EA Sports released Madden ratings for the edge rushers in Madden 23, and it was no surprise to see San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa alongside the top of the list, ranking third with a 94 overall.

Bosa, entering his fourth season in the NFL, had a strong season following a torn ACL in 2020, finishing with 15.5 sacks, 78 pressures, four forced fumbles, and a league-leading 21 tackles for loss en route to his second Pro Bowl appearance.

Bosa led a dominant 49ers defense to top-five finishes in total sacks and sack percentage in 2021, nearly doubling the next-highest 49er's sack total(Arden Key had 8 sacks in 2021).

In Madden 23, Bosa ranks behind Cleveland Browns edge rusher Myles Garrett, who earned a 99 overall, and Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt, who earned a 96 overall.

Here are the top-ten edge rushers in Madden 23:

Bosa ranked ninth-overall in "power moves", earning an 87 rating in the category.

However, Bosa ranked only behind Aaron Donald in the "finesse moves" category, earning a 96.

Bosa will look to build off his stellar 2021 campaign, as he heads into the fourth year of his rookie contract, with a likely extension coming in either this offseason or next offseason.

49ers-Bears: How Kyle Shanahan, Trey Lance, Nick Bosa reacted to disappointing Week 1 loss

Well, that was disappointing to watch. Not just for fans but the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Kyle Shanahan watched as his team surrendered a 10-point lead and suffered a second-half collapse to the Chicago Bears. The matchup many felt would be a gimme for the Niners in their opener ended in a 19-10 defeat and an 0-1 start to the season. What was Shanahan's message to his team after the game? The coach didn't see anything wrong with his players' efforts. There were just too many costly mistakes on which Chicago ended up capitalizing. "First thing, it starts out with is the intent and how hard everybody goes," Shanahan said. "I never felt anything wrong with that throughout the game, but you're not going to win a lot of games when you miss those opportunities

Nick Bosa is a first-year team captain. He is the only newcomer to the group of six San Francisco 49ers captains, including defensive lineman Arik Armstead, tight end George Kittle, safety Jimmie Ward, linebacker Fred Warner, and tackle Trent Williams. His teammates so respect the 24-year-old pass rusher that head coach Kyle Shanahan tasked him with the honor of giving a speech to the team the day before each game last season. That tradition carried over into 2022. "I just give the Saturday speeches after walk-throughs," Bosa said on Friday. "I was doing that all last year too." Bosa isn't very proud of his speeches from last season, but the experience was invaluable because he

49ers Twitter and Facebook are melting down. All it took was one ugly loss, and many fans have already turned on the coaching staff, and the young quarterback, while declaring the season over. It's funny and annoying altogether. It's also way too early for any of that. This week, considering the frustration that many fans were experiencing, we decided to not only answer questions in this mailbag, but also give fans the chance to vent. Several did. But we only have room for so many. So here we go. Let's get to the mailbag. Does it seem that when the defense crumbles it's because of a needless penalty by Greenlaw? How many more are acceptable before a change is made? - Niner Jim The defense was dominant in the first half. And for the

49ers Notebook: Ryans, Foerster evaluate rookies; What happened on the Pettis play?; Former Seahawk K.J. Wright slams 49ers QB situation

There's still much to discuss (and much to move on from) when it comes to the 49ers' Week 1 loss to the Chicago Bears, and on Thursday it was time for defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans and offensive line coach/run game coordinator Chris Foerster to offer their perspectives on what went right and what went wrong last Sunday. Ryans gave some thoughts on the performance of a couple key defensive linemen, while each coach gave their evaluation of the rookies on their side of the ball that got significant playing time. Ryans also talked about the touchdown pass from Bears quarterback Justin Fields to former 49ers receiver Dante Pettis and what his players did incorrectly on the play. There were also a couple noteworthy quotes to come from the radio airwaves, in
