First thing ATL needs to do is drill CK like as if frackin' shale, repeatedly. 15 yard flags be damned.

If they don't you can be DAMN sure BB or the Ratbirds will in the SB.

Kid ain't slidin & is acting all baDD & sh!+. It's only a matter of time, smarts & ballz.

Yeah, I wondered what happened to the "spy" concept on defense.  Sure, the spy better be faster and quicker than 10 years ago, but there's nothing really new in life (and sports), just packaged in a different way.  If Kaepernick is still running for 50+ yard TDs four or five years from now, I'll tip my hat.  But somehow I doubt it.

DW,

I doubt Kaepernick will be running for almost 200 yards per game 5 years from now either. But I would bet that he'll still be a very good NFL QB who's a threat to run, and I bet there will still be versions of plays where young QBs have an option to throw, run or pass.

There's nothing new in the game, but the game always evolves.

By this logic, wouldn't you do the same to Brady ior any other QB? Just drill him regardless of flags and knock his ass outta the game, whether he's got the ball or not.

Being facetious of course, but as a defensive strategy, what you suggest isn't really viable. I agree that if Kapeernick doesn't know to slide, then game on. But that's dealing with him as a runner, and not really addressing the question of defensing the read/option play that I described where he can hand-off, pass or run.

Browns used to have a LB (#94) from an SEC school (NOT Big Money) that was a good spy. I forget his name but he was here in '05 or '06 and was decent in a 3-4.
