Even with a below average roster last year coach Nguyen was still able to bring the team together for a SB run. Things ended up short as they would lose a game from throwing a crucial pick 6 against the Carolina Panthers. Expect this defense to tighten up pick up off where they left last year. 9 new acquisitions was towards this defense giving them more depth than ever.
Coach Nguyen is bringing a lethal offense aboard this season and hinted that this is the year Jimmy Garoppolo will blossom into a Pro Bowl caliber player for them. One of the pieces they got now is Martellus Bennett, he will provide play making abilities that the 49ers missed from the TE position.
Coach Season Preview
” I am really excited for this season, new and improved Offense and that nasty Defense gained a lot of depth. Everyone in that locker room knew we were the ones who should’ve made it to the Super Bowl last season, and we should’ve been the ones hoisting that Lombardi Trophy. Things happen for a reason and my boys are hungrier than I’ve ever seen them. All I have to say is WATCH OUT, WE COMING!”
