I expect the coaches will ajust. We'll probably play more nickle in obvious passing downs and take out clarke. Also I can see them using Clarke as a blitzer as he powers through blocks and will help us put teams in long yardage!
I'm not calling for Danny. I'm saying Mark's hand is injured and we may not have a choice. I like Mark and Danny. Danny is solid on goal to go running plays. The point of the thread is that Mark's hand might get us a good long look at Danny. Whether one prefers him or not.
With our focus in this game against San Fran of stopping the run and letting the cards with Alex Smith fall where they may, this might be the best time for Clark to see some extended action.
That being said, I think the staff knows what they are doing and that is reason you have not seen Clark besides on the goaline.
Clark is a better MLB than Simoneau. Simoneau came in first and hasn't played poorly. Payton is loyal to players and will not remove them unless it's obvious they're not getting the job done. Bellamy will now be the SS and once Clark gets his chance, he will be the MLB. Every true MLB is somewhat of a liability against the pass. I get so tired of that argument. They're job is to stop the run and make plays against the run, which Clark can do.
