Our defense versus Chris Johnson

I could care less if Johnson gets 300 yards rushing as long as we win the game...for the record, though, I think we stack the box and shut his ass down.

That could happen regardless of the D stopping him or not. Lendale White may get the bulk of the redzone carries.


CJ doesn't need redzone carries to score. 52 yard and 89 yard TD's against the Jags, 91 yard TD against the Texans (plus a 69 yard TD catch) - ALL of his TD's this season have come from outside the red zone!

Note to Patrick Willis: DON'T MISS!
Note to Singletary: DON'T put Mark Roman in the game! At all. Period. Don't.
Stack the box..let Vince Young beat us with his arm....
We have a pretty good run defense as it is but were going to have to keep the gaps controlled because Young can run as well. We havent faced a mobile QB like this so far so itll be a test regardless of how Tenn throws the ball. Can WE score points??
Well

Im more worried about the Play Action

We suck against play action. Chris Johnson is a threat and I wouldnt be surprised if our defense gets sucked in a little and the titans use PA to their TE's.

I know VY isnt a threat, but we have had a bad time defending PA.
Considering the fact that we're number two in the NFL in rushing YPG and number one in the NFL in rushing YPA, I think we'll be fine.
Johnson has already roasted some of the top Rushing Defenses in the league.

Anyone think this is going to be a piece of cake? You better think again. Johnson can beat us in so many ways, it's going to be a mad scramble trying to take him down.

If we don't stop Johnson, we lose. Plain and simple. Young was 15/18 last game. As I've been trying to say.. He's not the player he was before, and people need to realize this. Tennessee just won its first game, and they'll be looking for more. We CANNOT take them lightly.
....More Doom & Gloom.

If we can handle AP, I think we can handle Chris Johnson. If there's one thing we excel at, it's shutting down running games.
I bet we force Vince to throw some picks.

Doom and gloom? Whatcha talkin bout Willis?
Bend, don't break, he's on my fantasy team! J/P Rather take a Niner win than a fantasy win...
What's so exciting about it? We shut every other running back down. What makes Chris Johnson so unstoppable? lol
If we can hold the BEST back in the league under 100 yds what makes u think that we cant hold down Johnson he doesnt come close to Peterson especially with that line that Tennessee has.
The reason Johnson was succesfull yesterday was because Jacksonville's rush defense is ranked 25th (128.3)yds overall.

niners are ranked 2nd (84.9)yds

It wont be a problem to stop Tennessee or Vince Young
he doesnt scare me will be all over his a$$ all day!!!

We're good at stopping the run...against the pass however...
the DC did an AWESOME job preparing for the colts. I'm sure he'll do the same for the Titans.
