One of the San Francisco 49ers defensive problems came from too many missed tackles. Whether taking poor angles to the ball-carrier or simply not wrapping up, the reasons are inexcusable.

Many of you have generously asked for a place where you can contribute to as a way to show your appreciation for the work we do.
