    JS have an article up (no link, go find it if you want) talking about some of the things we have done to handle players like kaep Vick and RG3. Going back to school to work with a college on how to defend it, changes on the defensive front, and disguising the defense with things like mike neal at LB and DE.

    Is this enough?

    I think we have enough team speed to stop these guys. The difference between stopping those guys and watching them run on by ya is good discipline. We didnt get torched by a lot of called QB runs. We got ran all over when the discipline/scheme put guys either way up field or with their backs to the QB. I'd like to believe the coaches did their homework this offseason and will be able to put their guys in good positions to hold a pocket and keep those pesky running QBs in front of them.

    I think that this will be a pivotal season for Dom Capers and his defensive staff. They had a bad season in 2009, a great 2010, a terrible 2011, and an average season in 2012. If 2013 doesn't show significant improvement then the organization may look for a fresh coaching perspective. I've never been in the "Fire Capers" camp but do think that the momentum is certainly starting to building in that direction.

    I'll opine that significant changes aren't needed, just the right changes. We'll find out if they were the right ones.

    I knew I'd find that at the bottom of the scroll bar LOL.

    I'm glad we have the Niners the first game of the season, it will give us a true litmus test into how good Dandy Don really is, especially since we all know these two teams will meet again in the playoffs anyway.

    (unless the Niners get eliminated in the first round that is...Pack will have the 1st round bye). :D

    And I really think your QB will get his skinny punk a$$ knocked out for several games by running around like forrest gump this year.

    RGIII wont be as mobile in only week 2 due to still recovering from that nasty injury. Vick has not been fast or done a lot with his legs for some time now. Vick is highly inaccurate, causing over throws for INT's. He is easily rattled and easily injured.

    The way to solve the mobile QB is to hit him, hit him a lot, hit him hard a lot. The more he wants to run around, make him pay. He may think about throwing a lot more often. Mobile QB's vs us this year will be a different story.

    No. The front 7 incumbents need to be better football players playing better football, Matthews being the exception. And they need to do it in a zone defense.

    Well we better be because otherwise we're gonna find ourselves 0-2. Agree with the guy who says we have to hit them, but first we have to catch them!

    Yes, ready for RBs too. The dynamics of the team will definitely change this year.

    While I thought it was hasty to call for capers head last season I think if this is an issue this season you need to look at your options.

    As much as I wanna say 'YES we are ready for mobile quarterbacks' I have to have it proven to me. This has been a problem for 12 years 2 GMs 2 coaches etc. etc. etc. I can't blindly Santa Claus believe this time.

    A problem for us alone, or are you including the many many other teams that have to take on a mobile QB week in and week out?

    You just made it sound like we are the only team that had an issue facing a running QB. Plenty of teams got burned by the mobile QB.
