Revis shut him down and followed it up by shutting down Randy Moss. He then ruined it all by allowing Ginn Jr. to burn him for a deep touchdown lol. Point is Nate Clements isn't Revis and I DONT want him on Johnson all game or we will get burnt often. Johnson is bigger stronger and faster. I'd rather Spencer match up on him with Goldson shadowing over top because Spencer has a better matchup size wise and Goldson can make sure he doesn't go deep. I'll take our chances with their running game against our run defense but please don't let Johnson rape us deep.
This may not be a bad idea. I'm pretty confident in Spencer, I would argue him to be comeback player of the year for the Niners.
Although, I will give Nate the benefit of the doubt, because he has played solid games up until the Atlanta blowout, he was a gambler on that game.
Either way, Andre Johnson will get his. The key is to get to Schaub, period.
Speaking of Spencer, do anyone think he's possibly playing better than Nate?
For the record, I have no problem with the way either of them are playing. I don't think how much they make is even a factor unless we're up against the salary cap. It's not my money that pays them.
Some might argue that. But to me...what separates Nate from Spencer are his run support skillset...
Nate can shed his blockers and literally spear any back, big or small, did you see when he speared Steven Jackson almost in half?...the rest of the game Sjax was weary of running at Nate's side....honestly there aren't too many CB's in this league that have enough grit to stick his head in there like Nate can.
