Fred Warner reveals the 49ers defense's mantra for 2021

Robert Saleh took his "all gas, no brake" mantra to the New York Jets. That left new San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans to come up with something different. One of his biggest stars, linebacker Fred Warner, spoke with reporters before today's practice and revealed what the 49ers defense is rolling with as it heads into the 2021 season. "DeMeco came up with his own slogan—S.W.A.R.M.," Warner said. The word is an acronym, of course. "Swarm" seems to describe San Francisco's speedy and talented defense perfectly. "Special work ethic and relentless mindset," Warner continued. "That's been his thing for our defense, and we'll probably just roll with that." Wait, wouldn't that be S.W.E.R.M.? Or maybe even

This could be an interesting year for San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. He has just one winning record in his four seasons with the team. Many will argue that last season was a fluke. It was a six-win campaign marred by a historic number of injuries. The team had just come off a Super Bowl appearance, but the injuries completely transformed the roster by Week 2. Most expect the 2021 49ers to more resemble their 2019 counterparts than last season's version. And now, Shanahan has a new toy to feature in his offense—No. 3 overall pick Trey Lance. Lance won't start. That job belongs to veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Lance will see the field,

ESPN's latest NFL power ranking is causing a bit of a stir among fans. Not only does writer Mike Clay have the San Francisco 49ers ranked No. 15 in the league, but he also has them as the last-listed representative of the NFC West. While the 49ers and Los Angeles Rams are oddsmakers' favorites to win the division, the Seattle Seahawks surprisingly come in at No. 6, the highest-ranking among the four NFC West teams. The Los Angeles Rams can be found six spots later at No. 12. Even the Arizona Cardinals are ranked higher than San Francisco. One spot higher, in fact, at No. 14. So why the
