There's no question Justin opens up lanes for Aldon...you do that when you tie up two OL, as he usually does. Most successful pass rushers depend on the big guys up front to create space for them to operate. That said, as Aldon gets stronger hopefully he'll be able to create some of his own space, but to some degree he'll always need help, they all do.

This is my view as well.
Hate to say it but yes Aldon does need J.Smith.We can all play the coulda/woulda/shoulda game but I wonder if the 49ers would have drafted JJ Watt would he have the same #'s as he does in HOU or possibly more
