Snap counts: Smith, Brooks, and Lynch

Nov 24, 2014 at 7:51 AM--


There was a lot of discussion this week surrounding Ahmad Brooks' disappointment about how he was being used. Against the New York Giants in East Rutherford, New Jersey, he was benched because of an altercation with a member of the coaching staff.

Since then, Brooks has made up with his coaches, expressed his disappointment in himself and how he acted, and everyone seemed to be back on the same page.

Against Washington on Sunday, Brooks was in there to recover a Robert Griffin fumble following a Justin Smith sack that sealed the game.

For a look at their playing time in the 49ers' game against Washington, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area compiled the statistics for linebackers Aldon Smith, Ahmad Brooks and Aaron Lynch. They are as follows.

Aldon Smith
52 snaps, 3 tackles, 2 sacks, 4 quarterback hurries

Ahmad Brooks
37 snaps, 3 tackles, 1 pass defended, 1 fumble recovery

Aaron Lynch
21 snaps, 2 tackles, 1 sack

It was not a bad performance for the trio of outside linebackers.

Why John Lynch and DeMeco Ryans believe Azeez Al-Shaair is the 49ers' most-improved defender

When referencing the San Francisco 49ers linebackers during the offseason, the main spotlights were All-Pro Fred Warner and his coverage sidekick, Dre Greenlaw. Greenlaw is most known for his magnificent stop of Jacob Hollister at the 1-yard line to clinch the NFC West title in Week 17 of the 2019 NFL season. But, after Greenlaw went down at the beginning of the season with a groin injury, Azeez Al-Shaair, who went undrafted in the 2019 NFL Draft, stepped up with a major opportunity and hasn't looked back. Recently, I placed Al-Shaair as essentially the sixth-most valuable player on this 49ers football team this season, and the third-most valuable defender, behind just Nick Bosa and Emmanuel



John Lynch says Frank Gore loves 49ers' Deebo Samuel as a running back

On Wednesday morning, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR. A former NFL running back and 49ers fan favorite, Frank Gore, was with Lynch in team CEO Jed York's suite this past Sunday during the team's 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He remains close with the York family and continues to be a big fan of his former organization. Gore was treated to watching a 79-yard, one-touchdown rushing performance from Deebo Samuel — a wide receiver. That came on just eight attempts, meaning the receiver averaged nearly 10 yards per carry. Gore believes Samuel is so impressive that the third-year wideout is good enough to be a great running back. "He loves Deebo as a running back," Lynch said. "He probably feels that if we

If you ask Nick Bosa, he'll tell you that he's even better than he was before his devastating ACL injury last season. The San Francisco 49ers pass rusher is proving it this season. He has already surpassed his previous career-high nine sacks during his 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign. Bosa's 10 sacks this season are tied for the fifth-most in the league, and the 49ers defender is the only player with 10-or-more sacks and 15 tackles for a loss. "I think I've definitely improved a lot," Bosa said on Sunday. "I think I'm starting to get the hang of just how to really get sacks, get numbers. My rookie year, I was just out there rushing, trying to win every time. It worked
