This is the key. If the Dline is healthy, Bosa is getting 15+. It's crazy how our Dline would go through Oline.

Add in a 100% healthy ford and Strahans record sack year is going to be in real danger.

I concur

There is lots of room for improvement...for starters he spent a good chunk of time on the ground.

Last year was far from perfect, and he made quite a few plays on his motor alone. As special as it was for us as 49er fans, i don't think we were close to seeing the best of Bosa.

After i dunno...40? years of watching the 49ers.... I cant think of defender that was clearly more disruptive on his own. Maybe Deion Sanders the year we had him....maybe.... Maybe Ronnie's first year he got moved to Safety....

We are a blessed fan base, and so lucky we got such a good dude, who is also a fantastic football player. I know a lot of fans straight up called it. We had guys in his draft thread that talked Super Bowl if he ended up on the team. They were right...dude is a franchise player in the truest sense of the word.

He's disruptive, no doubt about it. Similar to Dean, Haley and Aldon.

I think he has a tremendous amount of improvement still to go. The biggest potential improvement part of it is the mental part. I can't wait for Bosa to start calling defensive line play like Haley and Dean did in past super bowl defenses. Haley loved to screw offenses by rushing from everywhere and dropping off to pick off screen passes. Same with Dean. When that happens, our defense, if Kinlaw can be almost as good as Buckner from a pass rush standpoint, is going to be dominating.

Also, the multiple gang-bang sacks on that crybaby Rodgers was equally as enjoyable.

You know I played football for 9 years. I played hockey for 13. Competed in various all star tournaments from state to state. I've coached basketball for two years now and I can't ever remember getting more pumped up in a moment than I was in that one, lol. I'm extremely competitive too.
