I doubt it since Owen Daniels is no Tony Gonzalez. I expect them to use Slaton more in the passing game and C.Brown for the running plays. Then again if the Niner D actually shows up for this game, it shouldnt matter.
While Daniels is no Gonzalez, he's a former pro-bowler who's having another good year this year. I don't think he's to be taken lightly. Gonzalez was critical valve for Ryan when we played the Falcons. We sent Lewis on him yet he still had a good day.
I think Texans pick up on this, we'll see come game day though.
That's exactly what I was thinking.
Also, the Niners defense relies heavily on scheme to create an effecitve pass-rush...
Falcons countered with that offensive set for max protection...
only way to get a pass rush vs this look is to win the one on one battle...and in my honest opinion, only Justin Smith is capable...
I think this will be crucial.
