49ers’ Nick Bosa on 4th-down sack vs. Saints: “I think it was just a good jump”

Nov 27, 2022 at 6:23 PM--


New Orleans Saints fans were fuming after the game. Many felt that San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa was early off the line of scrimmage on the fourth-down play that led to sack number 11.5 for the defender this season. Even Bosa wasn't sure the play would stand.

"It was great. I didn't think it counted, but once I realized it did, I was pretty happy," Bosa told reporters after the 49ers' 13-0 win at Levi's Stadium.

A reporter asked Bosa why he felt it might not have counted.

"I thought I jumped, but I looked at it," Bosa shared. "I think it was just a good jump."

That, of course, led to some laughs from the 49ers media. The talented defensive end went on to discuss the play further.

"I think the tackle got off at basically the same time," Bosa said.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about his view of the Bosa sack and if he felt it was only a matter of time before the pass rusher reached the Saints quarterback. Bosa came away with the only sack in the game by the 49ers defense.

"Usually, it's a matter of time," Shanahan said. "That was a great time to do it. I thought he was getting close. He's always having to battle that every play with the chips and just those guys doing whatever they can to block him. But he was moving all day, and that was a big-time play by him to get that sack when he did."

If Bosa believes he was clean off the line of scrimmage, that is impressive timing by the fourth-year player.

"I think the whole game, I was trying to get a feel for the head bob," Bosa explained. "Our fans are awesome, so it makes it tough at home for [opposing offenses]. They have to go silent cadence with the head bob. But yeah, I definitely was trying to get a good jump there, and I ended up getting it."

Nick Bosa is the next San Francisco 49ers player in line to receive a big-time contract extension. Most expect the NFL Defensive Player of the Year frontrunner to become the NFL's highest-paid defender. But is that the talented pass rusher's goal? "Not necessarily," Bosa responded when asked that question on Tuesday. "We'll just see where it goes." One of his top priorities is remaining with the 49ers, the team that made him the No. 2 overall pick in 2019. "I'd love to be here, for sure," Bosa said. "This is a great organization. They treat you as good as [anyone] can. I have amazing relationships here, so hopefully [I stay], yeah." The defender isn't sweating the situation right now.

The San Francisco 49ers are facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game, with the victor punching a ticket to Glendale, Arizona, where they'll play the winner of the Kansas City Chiefs and the Cincinnati Bengals in the Super Bowl. To reach that goal, the 49ers are going to need a strong performance from their best unit, the defensive line, which is led by potential Defensive Player of the Year: edge rusher Nick Bosa. Bosa has only further cemented his status as one of the best, if not the best, pass-rushers in the NFL with an 18.5-sack season, while continuing his efforts as a very underrated run-defender. Ahead of the NFC Championship Game, Bosa received support from rival defensive end Maxx Crosby, who entered
