Nate needs to come up big!

No matter what we as fans think about Nate, the coaching staff is gonna line him up on the other teams best receiver every time. Here's hoping he has a good game. Look at what NFL.com said about the matchup:

San Francisco at Houston
San Francisco CB Nate Clements vs. Houston WR Andre Johnson
This is the second meeting between these teams and the 49ers' first time playing the Texans in Houston. It's a game both teams need to win if they are going to be a serious factor in the playoff race.

Clements plays against the receiver the Niners think is most likely to beat them, no matter where that receiver lines up. He is very physical and has good ball skills. He is the second-leading tackler on the 49ers. If San Francisco is to have any chance to win, Clements needs to come up big.

Johnson is an elite playmaker. He caught 115 passes for 1,575 yards and eight TDs in '08. He does not like to be pressed and struggles some when he doesn't have free access (although he is strong enough to get off the press). Johnson is an excellent slant threat and a very good deep route runner. He is an outstanding receiver and seems to play better indoors.

I remember one April fools the Zone pulled a joke on everyone and posted a fake article saying Johnson was traded to the 9ers. I almost cried when I figured out it wasn't true.
Clements is in for a fight!

Nate is a gangsta, he gonna deal wit johnson, plus they gone give him a lil help up top cuz spencer gone lock his man down on the other side and dre gonna b probin too. we ain't necessarily completely lacking talent in our secondary. our safeties step up and d line pressure wit da lbs shuttin down the run, we should have turnover opportunites a +2 margin. we just need 2 make sure we sustain our drives on offense. the defense gone b alright
