49ers Central: Smith's improving health bad news for Falcons
Dave Feldman, Ray Ratto and Joe Nedney talk about the impact a healthier Justin Smith can have in Atlanta.
It -- when -- that they ran around CSN Bay Area dot com and the Cowboys Justin Smith says he's more comfortable -- With that arm brace on the triceps. And that could be some bad news for the Atlanta up. Sure there's nobody thought that he was gonna come out of that game period I thought Izzo who's going to be coming with one wing hanging down. The fact that he was studies and played as well as he did and kept bring the pressure late in the game. Huge vote of confidence -- You've said all week yourself longer than a week to justice and that is the key to this team the most important player do you still feel that way. Well yeah because what happened against Green Bay was he handled -- -- responsibilities you still playing one handed so we didn't really challenge Rodgers that much. But he kept kept them from being able to run the ball effectively in Atlanta already struggled doing that none of their runners averaged four yards -- And that's sort of the standard you have to meet and Atlanta as being able to do that so if he's able to play as he did against Green Bay. Then I think Atlanta's gonna have to win throwing the ball fifty times. Julio Jones and Roddy White guys -- -- -- you disagree you said they're great -- be the niners toughest test it will be the toughest that we -- secondaries toughest yet. The fact is Atlanta is one dimensional that way Green Bay is too. But I think when you look at the receiver corps that Aaron Rodgers approach to -- the Matt Ryan throws to. Matt Bryant got better guys plus he's got Tony Gonzales plus he's got -- were. Harry Douglas who's a very good third receiver so they can probably really put pressure on them that way. But without being able to run. It really puts a lot of pressure on. On it landed to be efficient in the passing game and I gonna have to use a whole lot. The four guys are not gonna have to put 56 have guys the box and Jerry without stopping Tony Gonzales -- be accused. Sure absolutely -- can never underestimate a guy that. Has just won his very first playoff game in his sixteenth you're playing football and finally got a taste he's not gonna let this opportunity pass you will see the best missiles which. Last regular season meeting between the Falcons in the 49ers October 3 2010. Matt Ryan -- a last minute drive in the 49ers lost that game sixteen to four.
