Re: 9ers board What Defender do you fear??? Post
If we are strictly talking about Colin Kaepernick, the one guy that he should most concerned with (I won't say fear, because that will be losing the game before it starts) is Haloti Ngata. Yes, Benard Pollard has laid some hits on opponents this year. However, it has been Ngata that has left the QBs shaken up. Andy Dalton was through after some hits by Ngata in the fourth quarter. Robert Griffin's season was over the moment Ngata made contact with him. Tom Brady wanted no part of Ngata and threw the ball into the middle of the ocean. He is the guy whose actual speed cannot be fully understood by watching film. If Kaepernick tries to scramble, he'll have to be weary of Ngata and make sure that he doesn't underestimate his speed.
That is the one defender I would choose. Trent Dilfer talked about the numbers game of the pistol and so forth. The issue is that when you have defenders who need to be double teamed, such as Ngata, right up the middle no less, it sets up your outside defenders to set the edge and messes with that numbers game.
