Buccaneers’ Tom Brady has 3 words for 49ers’ Nick Bosa

Dec 8, 2022 at 12:08 PM--

Tom Brady has been in the league long enough that you would think the future Hall of Fame quarterback has seen it all and worries about nothing. As San Francisco 49ers rookie starting quarterback Brock Purdy hilariously said this week, "Dude's been playing football longer than I've been alive."

Brady might be a little concerned about his trip to Levi's Stadium this weekend, though. He'll be going up against pass-rushing phenom Nick Bosa, and the quarterback doesn't want to get on the defender's wrong side.

"Be nice Sunday," Brady posted this week via Instagram, adding a nervous emoji (h/t The Spun).

Bosa currently leads the league with 14.5 sacks this season. Three of those sacks came in the 49ers' 33-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins this past weekend. Bosa ranks second only to Za'Darius Smith of the Minnesota Vikings with 62 total pressures (Smith has 63), per Pro Football Focus.

On Wednesday, the NFL named Bosa the NFC Defensive Player of the Week, and the defensive end was named NFC Defensive Player of the Month for November.

The 49ers and Buccaneers kick off from Levi's Stadium at 1:25 p.m. PT on Sunday. San Francisco is currently a 3.5-point favorite. Bosa did not practice on Wednesday due to some hamstring irritation. We'll see if he's on the field for the team's Thursday session, which begins at 12:58 p.m. PT.

49ers GM John Lynch on Nick Bosa extension: "They don't come as quick as you'd like sometimes"

The San Francisco 49ers have seen consistent success over the past four years, making the NFC Championship Game three times and the Super Bowl once, despite not having an elite solution at quarterback. Instead, they've maneuvered their way through the NFL Draft, acquiring stars such as Fred Warner, Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, Arik Armstead, Dre Greenlaw, and Jimmie Ward, all of whom earned a second contract extension with the team. Now, those extension talks didn't all go smoothly, as Samuel requested a trade last offseason, while the 49ers were at odds with Kittle during negotiations. However, the 49ers are soon to face their toughest task of them all: extending star edge rusher Nick Bosa, who could be in line to demand the biggest contract for a

Packers' Christian Watson: 49ers QB Trey Lance has "everything that it takes"

By David Bonilla

Trey Lance entered this past season as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. However, a season-ending ankle injury during Week 2 ended his 2022 campaign, opening the door for Jimmy Garoppolo and, eventually, rookie Brock Purdy. Purdy, the last overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, showed that he could play at the pro level. The first-year passer entered the game for an injured Garoppolo, leading the 49ers to a Week 13 win over the Miami Dolphins, followed by seven consecutive victories as a starter. Had Purdy not suffered a tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles, he would likely be the undisputed Week 1 starter for the 2023 season. Of course, the 49ers

49ers considered trading Mike McGlinchey last year

By David Bonilla

Mike McGlinchey received a life-changing payday, signing a five-year, $87.5 million deal with the Denver Broncos. The offensive tackle has known for a while that he would not return to the San Francisco 49ers, the only NFL team he has played for and the one that made him the No. 9 overall pick in 2018. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan made it clear to McGlinchey that he was likely playing his final months for the team. There was too much money invested in other spots, and the 49ers knew they couldn't compete with other interested teams. Behind the scenes, Lynch and Shanahan kept McGlinchey in the loop of what the team was thinking, and everything pointed to the tackle playing elsewhere in 2023 … maybe even
