Plus, a linebacker corp of Lee, Carter, Ware and Spencer can easily challenge the Niners for best in the NFL, thus more freedom to run exotic stunts and get away with them, and if not, send Rob packing.
All this D has to do is sure up safety and it will be lights out, so sit tight and cross your fingers for Matt Elam
Elam's weakness is in coverage. We already have an SS on the roster with Church. If he's there in the second, I'd take him though.
