    What we aren't getting in sacks, we are getting in turnovers.

    14 take aways. Good for 3rd in the league. 11 int's, 3 FF with 3 recoveries.

    The pressure was there yesterday, but Alex Smith had a lot of times. I still like the fact that we are tipping passes and creating turnovers or chances for turnovers AT LEAST.

    Good game by Rolle. Played like a true ball-hawk.

    Not to mention that we have, what, 4 turnovers of our own? Eli has only thrown something like 2 picks all season and there was the Wilson fumble vs dallas and the Bradshaw fumble vs cleveland. Am I missing anything?

    turnovers are better than sacks in my opinion

    I mean we had 11 in 5 games going into yesterday. 2 turnovers a game... When is the last time we averaged that?

    and turnovers come from pressure and frustration, so that is a great sign ... when totally healthy we have 3 legit DTs and 4 legit DEs with Kiwi now looking like he will get more DE/DT snaps than LB snaps going forward

    i like Prince, Webby, Hosley and Coe at CB ... that's coming together

    and once K-Phil gets back our Safety position looks solid and deep ... Rolle seems to have left that camera knee problem behind

    and at LB ... Boley, Blackburn, J-Will, Paysinger, Rivers and now Tracey got some snaps there ... so again pretty solid and deep

    bottom line the D is coming together ... we have to be careful getting too excited b/c SF is ultra conservative on O, but they are physical and we easily dealt with that and even exceeded their physicality
