All I'm saying is that anybody who expects him to come out and be a beast immediately is gonna be disappointed.

hes a pass rusher, his job is to assault the qb, its quite possible he puts up 7-9 sacks as a pass rusher without knwoing the entire playbook

That is very possible but I wouldn't categorize that as being a beast either. I'm not gonna have high expectations for the team this year only high hopes.
Not much of a surprise (well to me anyways) as he is converting positions in a short offseason so some bumps were to be expected. I would say it's likely he won't be an every down player till next season.

It doesn't mean he won't have an impact this year as he could be thrown in their in passing situations and just be assigned to kill the QB and nothing else and have an impact. I mean he was drafted 7th overall to rush the passer not necessarily to set the edge or go into coverage.

This times a billion.

For us fans, high hopes and low expectations is the way to enter this season.

what does the playbook have to do with "but opposing tackles seem to have caught on to his club move."

lol, just like every preseason ppl reading too much into things cus they are so thirsty for football, your right, the gig is up, he should never try that club move again
you guys forgot to mention that Boone is doing great against a 1st round pick whose job is to harass the QB
SLam49ers Samuel Lam
TE Konrad Reuland caught a pass, spun around to get away from the defender but a blindside shove by LB Aldon Smith jarred the ball loose.


probably his last time causing a fumble cus everyone will catch on now right?

Good thing I've read that he was pwning linemen with more than just the one move. Otherwise, I might be worried....

Nah... still wouldn't be worried.

Boone was looked at as a first round pick before he started getting into trouble because of alcohol abuse.
I figured a four month lockout would affect the rookies the most.

Fangio must of noticed Aldon's hands were on his hips...the #1 incator of a player not picking up the scheme fast enough.

Where is the hands on the hips thing coming from? Ive seen it in a few threads now.
