Learned so much from these dudes that I couldn't explain it in words. I came in almost 5 years ago now. I was blessed to learn and watch one of the best defenses to ever play this game... The type of players I had the privilege to watch @patricklwillis @navorro_bowman @aldonsmith #ahmadbrooks #parysharelson #dashongoldson @dontehitner31 #carlosrogers @illest972 #rickyjean #justinsmith @raymcd91 #issacsopoaga I saw what greatness really was from this group of guys... And we had some dogs on offense too... With JSmith retiring today I wish him and his family the best in the next chapter of their lives. But I know he can't/won't stay far from this team and this fan base. All the best to @patricklwillis #chrisborland and #justinsmith 👌👌👌👌 #respect

The San Francisco 49ers have won three consecutive games and are probably feeling pretty good heading into their Week 12 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. No one is overlooking the 4-7 team, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has been impressed with New Orleans' defense, understanding that the 49ers' seventh win of the season won't come easy. "Just starting with their defense, they look like a [Saints head coach] Dennis Allen team," Shanahan said. "They've been, to me, one of the best defenses in the league here over the last five or six years. I don't think their numbers are quite there as they usually are, but I think a lot of that has to do with they've been missing about seven starters a number of these games. But they are as tough, and physical, and as sound as
