49ers' Nick Bosa named NFL Rookie of the Year

Last edited Tue Jan 14, 2020, 06:01 PM - Edit history (1)

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa was recognized as the NFL Rookie of the Year, the Pro Football Writers of America announced on Tuesday morning.

Bosa was not just NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. He won that, too. But the writers selected him as the best rookie in the league, period.

Hot damn!

Kudos to 49ers rookie linebacker Dre Greenlaw, who was named to the first-team all-rookie defense. Both Bosa and Greenlaw were products of the 2019 draft.

Special mention goes to defensive line players Dee Ford, DeForest Buckner, Arik Armstead, Ronald Blair III (IR) and D.J. Jones (IR) whose awesome contributions helped Bosa excel -- plus LBs Greenlaw, Alexendar, and Fred Warner -- and all the other players, DC Robert Saleh, and position coaches.

1. "Bosa" is Iraqi Arabic for kiss

So it amuses to me to see a linebacker named Bosa.

2. Nick Bosa had an exceptionally good game on Saturday

All his talents were showcased for the nation to witness, and you just know Green Bay is studying the tapes, over, and over again.

3. Having Dee Ford back in the line-up makes all the difference

Imagine if Jones and Blair were healthy. When they were, all those guys rotated in and out of the D line.

Packers offense is going to have a use a lot of play-action ... a lot of movement. That includes Rogers. He'll have to roll-out often, and throw a lot of screens to the RBs, forcing one or two linemen into coverage. Teams that had mobile QBs -- Arizona, Seattle, Baltimore -- gave S.F. the most trouble. If Rogers stays mostly in the pocket he's toast.

4. I'm sure dee ford..


I'm sure ford would love to go against the chiefs in the big game...except I think a. rogers will
handle s.f. ..


Chiefs trade pass-rusher Dee Ford to 49ers. Kansas City Chiefs outside linebacker Dee Ford is headed to a new team. The Chiefs have traded Ford to the 49ers in exchange for a 2020 second-round draft pick
