In an interview with NFL AM, 49ers Safety Donte Whitner claimed that his team's defense is the best in the league despite the recent acquisitions made by the Seahawks and Dashon Goldson's departure from San Francisco earlier this offseason.
"We feel like we're the best defense in the NFL," Whitner said Friday on NFL Network's "NFL AM." "We have pass rushers. We have a tremendous front seven. Two of the best -- if not the two best -- inside linebackers in the NFL."
I'm not sure I completely agree with him on this, but I will say he has a solid case. If he is right, we'll see it in the regular season.
