Why will San Francisco 49ers DE Justin Smith record at least one sack in the home opener? Because he’s going up against T Jermon Bushrod of course!
In Cowboy’s last three meetings against Bushrod (Saints) he amassed 13 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and seven quarterback hits. Whether getting bull-rushed with brute strength or manhandled with a swim/rip, Cowboy has Bushrod’s number so expect a big game from No. 94 as I predict him to have a stat line around six tackles and 1.5 sacks. If this is the case that should translate into a rough day for Forte, as his goons up front won’t be able to give him running lanes to run through while consistently getting hit near the line-of-scrimmage.
Watch the two videos below as Cowboy just manhandles Bushrod as he uses brute strength to bring down QB Drew Brees!
