    That 3 man rush...

    Did anyone seen that 3 man rush that SF has had... specifically, Justin Smith.

    omg... our d-line can't push the o-line back 1 yard w/ a 3-man rush.

    Yep, I just commented about it in another thread. Justin Smith is a beast. Not sure who their defensive coordinator is, but he has them prepared for the saints.

    OT - exactly how many teams have copies the Terrible Towel?? You see them everywhere now.

    Justin Smith was a beast every time we used to see him in Cincy. The guy that continues to impress me is Aldon Smith. 1st play he was in, he had pressure on Brees and their Pro Bowl tackle had no chance handling him one on one.

    I felt better for Max Starks who couldn't handle him either. No one can handle this kid. He's gonna be DMVP next year.

    Just proves all 3-4 defenses are not the same. My biggest issue with what we do is we don't have our Dline in the attack mode (hence my preference for a 4-3). We have them control the OL and expect the OLBs to get the QB. Problem is that those same OLB have to drop into coverage which means on many passing plays you give up pass rush.

    I'd prefer if we did what SF does but won't happen because we won't change anything because we finish the season with good rankings.

    Other teams give them away as people are entering the stadium as a gimmick for the playoffs or other nationally televised games. The difference is we buy our own and bring them with us.
