With having to face Russell Wilson's scrambling ability twice per year, I'm not so sure about that. I'll be curious to see how he plays this season.

Wilson is a talent. A D LIne has to play solid throughout the line for them to have a chance to stop Wilson. It's critical for the DT to have push up the middle and for a DE to close off the escape routes. Still, Wilson can escape to the other side if the other half of the D Line lose contain. With another year in Pete's system, I think any defense that will want to put pressure on Wilson via Blitz is playing russian roulette, and he'll just hit the hot reciever time and time again. I think the only way to play Wilson is a basic 4 man rush, and contain him, and play good coverage on the backside. Even then, he'll still make plays though.


Trying to tackle Wilson is frustrating to watch.

I can't help it. I have to troll the resident 49ers fans. Don't take it personally, guys. Wilson's ability to scramble around and just sidestep pursuers is ridiculous, haha.

Wilson is one QB I don't think you try to completely stop. I think you contain and limit, but your own QB has to perform as good or better and outscore Wilson. In other words, he's going to win games by himself, unless he's faced with another QB just as good as he is. Great mobility, very good arm, and he has pass catchers that can catch. Like the Greatest Show on Turf offense, you don't completely stop those kinds of offenses, you have to outscore them.

For any mobile QB, it's not the ones that he sees thats a danger to him, it's the ones that he doesn't see. Blindside hits have put a lot of QB's out of action for quite a while and that can happen to any QB scrambling around. Safer to get out of bounds and live another day. But yeah, the Wilsons, the Vicks, the Cunninghams - if you have the gift of scramble, you can turn a lot of broken plays into big yardage. The key to keeping a QB healthy (whether he can scramble or not) really is a good O Line and an all pro left tackle.

LOL.

No worries. That was why in a previous post I said that Aldon was getting pressure on Wilson that game...but Wilson did what Wilson does. :D

Clearly, if Aldon didn't have that torn labrum he would have sacked Wilson on that play.

We can both play that game. :D

Nah...Wilson is just slippery as a snake....tough to get a clean hit on the guy.

Both are true.
I have waited all off season for you to tell the truth. Finally.

Like that black police lieutenant/captain/whatever in that campy-but-awesome Schwarzenegger flick Last Action Hero says, "Truth at last!" :lol:

Although, Aldon did sack Wilson earlier in the season when they played in SF. Wasn't a big hit or anything but it was a pretty clean hit.

Aldon Smith might get 20 sacks in the GB opener alone. I can see him getting 10 the rest of the season.

Just a tad overconfident you're maintaining? Yeah ok, a high goal is understandable this ridiculousness is just stupid, full stop, no pass go.


Agreed. Aldon is talented, but he's full of crap. This is something you don't say to the media. Niners will fall hard this year.

I'll bet Aaron Rodgers's ego will make him throw the ball away more after his embarrassment at Seattle, even if his O-line is unimproved. No QB you call elite should ever take 8 sacks in one half no matter HOW bad your O-line is failing you. End of story. No excuses. You do what Brady and Peyton do, and throw the damned ball away if you are about to be sacked. Granted, they both have good O-lines and Rodgers doesn't, but Rodgers still took more sacks than Peyton and Brady COMBINED last year. For someone who does the "firing a pistol and blowing off the barrel" routine when he runs for like 7 yards, he should be ashamed at taking so many sacks.

When the 49ers sucked, I said the same thing about Lenard Little.

Big difference, though.

Aldon hasn't killed anybody yet.

This.

Worse...Little killed somebody when he was drunk driving....and then learned so much from that experience that he was caught AGAIN drunk driving. Scum of the earth.

Maybe Aldon will go after the guy that stabbed him. There's still time.
