It’s election day and the voters have an important decision to make. Who has the best defense in the NFL?
President Barack Obama spoke to ESPN’s Chris Berman on Monday Night Football on election eve, and his vote belongs to Chicago. The former Illinois Sen. told Berman that the Bears have to be considered the league’s best following their five-turnover, two-touchdown performance in Sunday’s 51-20 win over the Titans.
Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group did some fact-checking to help you see the strengths of the 49ers, Bears and other top defenses around the NFL.
“The Bears certainly state a strong case as the NFL’s premier defense, behind a turnover-crazed cast led by coach Lovie Smith and defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli,” Inman wrote. “But so do the 49ers, Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers. Don’t forget about last season’s Super Bowl entrants: the champion New York Giants and the Mitt Romney-endorsed New England Patriots. Plus, the Atlanta Falcons remain undefeated, so they should factor into this race.”
Today’s Morning Tailgate also features new faces on the 49ers practice field, the San Francisco Giants and their 49ers counterparts and more.
