These are pretty humungous animals. They might have an impressive
stride, but I find it hard to beleive they would be able to outrun a
theropod, even if they wanted to. After all, an Allosaurus attacking a
Brachiosaurus would be a biological version of Pickett's Charge.

Opposite situation: Those fangs might be impressive in
intraspecific combat, but against a theropod with an entire mouthfull of
nasty teeth and claws to boot, it seems unlikely.

These guys had some pretty impressive claws on ther forefeet.
