49ers not expected to retain Jeff Zgonina

The San Francisco 49ers are not expected to retain defensive line coach Jeff Zgonina, according to Alex Marvez. Zgonina just completed his second season as the 49ers d-line coach, and his fourth as an NFL coach. Previously he spent one season with the New York Giants as an assistant d-line coach, and the same role for a year in Houston. The 49ers defensive line had its share of ups and downs.

What to expect from the 49ers’ rushing defense against the Seahawks’ ground attack

What to expect from the 49ers’ rushing defense against the Seahawks’ ground attack

Can the 49ers’ defensive line slow down Seattle’s running backs? One of the biggest misconceptions surrounding the 49ers has been their highly effective rushing defense. Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh’s unit has been a top-10 unit, showing improvement throughout the season. 13 games into the season, the running defense is only giving up 4.1 yards per attempt. The biggest reason for the 49ers’ improved play as of late? Defensive end Arik Armstead, who’s set to make a hefty $9 million next season. When asked about the ex-Oregon defender, 49ers’ head coach Kyle Shanahan added...
