Aldon Smith May Start Out As Nickel Rush Defensive End?

So you basically want us to switch to a 4-3 defense?

no, I want Vic to be creative.
wouldn't mind seeing bowman shift to the outside on some plays and aldon rushing as an inside linebacker. Confuse the offense.
I can't wait until this kid plays full time!!!
should of kept manny lawson and draft aldon smith then switched to 4-3.. bowman, willis, lawson then smith, sopoaga, mcdonald, and smith... would work great with run and pass defense.

So far, I'm about as excited about Aldon's season to date performance as I was when I heard his name at #7 in the draft.
Yes, Aldon needs to be on the field bowman!! If he makes a mistake he ll make that mistake 100 mph
I meant to say now LOL

lol I was like wtf
that be awsome
I think Brooks and Haralson are doing a decent to good job of getting to the qb and holding that edge. Why rush Aldon Smith into it when he obviously needs time to learn play recognition for run support and coverage.

Just give him more opportunities. He's doing a good job.

I never hear his name called. I only remember his blocked pass in one game. no other plays jump out in my mind.

There's probably a reason for that.
