What the article fails to mention is that McKillop also very nearly got a sack in the 4th quarter. The only reason he didn't (he had timed his blitz perfectly, and Aubray Franklin DESTROYED the interior of the Rams O-Line) is that Patrick Willis beat him to the quarterback.
Originally posted by NASTYNATE22: to me it looks like Manusky is shaping up our line backing core to look like the chargers when he was there. i saw scottie play the last preseason game live and dam he was all over the field. good draft pick if he keeps up this type of progress
I really like the way our defense is set up & playing!
He was a nice fifth-round pickup. It's true that his TD was more of a lucky happenchance, but he put himself in that position to make the play. It's still way too early to make any meaningful kind of prediction about him, but I like what I see so far.
I agree with this, but I think it's actually a compliment. D Smith was a great, blue collar LB in his prime. His skills fell off towards the end, but don't overlook what he did for the niners earlier on. IMO, that's exactly the kind of guy we need next to Willis.
Agreed, it is just plain stupid to rag on D Smith, he was a pretty damn good LB for most of his career with the Niners, and his numbers only dropped off because of an eye injury. Show some class people!
