Attack Nate Clements!

Ok, knowing what we've ALL known for the past few years, if this coaching staff doesn't go after NC, they should be fired! We ALL know how NC was great against the run and good in short yardage situations, but he lacks speed and ALWAYS got burned on the deep route. Alex, Ginn & Juice, Crabby Patty, Morgan, Kyle and any other receiver we have with at least a 5.5, 40 yard dash should be able to skip past NC!

Attack him or BEAT the coaching staff with a broom!
We will probably attack rey maulauga before we attack nate.

Translation: we will continue to be singletarian in approach, by coach harbaltary. We will run the ball up the gut, and average 2.5 ypc again.
This team hasn't liked attacking another teams weaknesses in years. Probably since Mooch left. Hopefully that will change.
Nate should have a good game in run support and playing the short pass since thats the Niners offense right now.

yep, he will be able to jump the short routes. The same INT that Alex threw, against the cowboys, and against teh raiders in the preseason... look for something like that.

Yeah, about those deep routes... don't those usually require at least three seconds in the pocket?
I have a good feeling that Nate will pick off Alex. He knows his tendencies and probably jump at least one route.

He will fall for the double move like he always does.
we dont have any WR that has the speed tot ake advantage of the double move

ted ginn and vs nate, kyle williams is significantly faster but i see our tight ends getting some mismatches in this game also and i don't think they stop our run
at this point im not sure the niners have a receiver who has the total skill set to take advantage
Just have Alex throw him the ball on 3rd & long. That way he can fumble it back to us for a fresh set of downs.
I really hope Crabtree and VD can have an impact in this game. the edwards injury hurts alot. I just don't see Andy Dalton being able to avoid making a mistake vs. our D. The pass D should be better w/Spencer/Goldson back in the lineup.
If Smith is smart he pump fakes all day towards Clements side & finds a wide open receiver all day
