In terms of Nick Bosa’s performance, while the raw statistics may look a bit underwhelming, when you dig a little deeper, it becomes glaringly apparent that his impact on the 49ers defensive front has been overwhelming, to say the least.
Despite being hampered by a serious ankle injury, which has severely limited his snap count …. an injury which, btw, a lot of people questioned whether he would even be willing to play through, Nick Bosa continues to lead all rookie DL’s in Total QB Pressures, and he has been equally as dominant against the run. While his ankle injury has, for the most part, prevented him from getting consistent work during practice and game preparation in the lead-up to Sunday’s, it hasn’t taken away from the kind of impact we expected from the top rated DE in this years draft class, when he’s out on the field.
Anyone who has watched football long enough understands that sacks tend to come in bunches, provided a pass rusher is doing his job, and consistently beating his opposing counterparts. Bosa has been applying enough consistent pressure (again, he leads all rookie DL win-rate), along with his ability to consistently disrupt the defensive backfield, often times flushing opposing QB’s from the pocket a wrecking their rhythm, is one reason the 49ers have one of the top ranked defenses in the NFL. Perhaps most impressive of all, Nick has been equally as dominant defending against the run, further reinforcing the notion that he was the most the most complete Defensive End of his draft class, and by a considerable margin.
Make no mistake … despite the serious ankle injury, Nick Bosa ‘s play on the football field is a very big reason why the 49ers are ranked 7th against both the pass, and the run, and 2nd in overall defense, while creating 7 defensive turnovers, already matching their turnover total for the entirety of the 2018 season!
So much fluff. Could have just wrote, “Bosa ‘s play on the football field is a very big reason why the 49ers are ranked 7th against both the pass, and the run, and 2nd in overall defense”
