What I fear is some DL or LB of the Niners that's on the bubble and playing for their job, not caring if they pick up a personal foul, goes low on Russell and takes out a knee.
If we do start Russell, if I'm Pete, I'm in Shotty's ear telling him no long routes and to get the ball out of Russ's hands quickly, and if at halftime the Saints and/or Packers are up by 3 scores, I'd put Geno in.
