The San Francisco 49ers return to practice on Tuesday, and the new week of OTAs means another day of media availability. Defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil is scheduled to meet the media at 10:20 a.m. PT on Wednesday. That will be followed by practice at 10:40 a.m., and then player availability at 12:40 p.m.
We'll have a live stream for the press conference, and Jennifer Chan will be in attendance. I don't expect O'Neil to give away the farm in his press conference, but maybe we can learn a thing or two about his thoughts on the defense. I thought I'd open up a thread this afternoon for people to throw out any questions they have for O'Neil. Obviously Jennifer will likely only be able to get a question or two in on Wednesday, but drop in any questions you have and we'll see what we learn.
The 49ers have added some intriguing talent to this group, but there are two issues in play this season. The first is how the players will perform on their own. The second is how the coaching staff will use them. A little bit of both will play into just what we make of this defense six or seven months from now.
