Exactly. Justin Smith should be #1. If they insist on Willis #1, then Justin should be #2. Aldon comes after that.
When a top ranked defense turns to sh*t when one man is lost, you need to realize how good that man is. Aldon was also injured last season when the defense went sour, but last season wasn't the only time we saw the defense stink it up without Justin. Remember when he was ejected against the Chargers (BS, yes, but it happened), the D was playing well, then turned into crap.
At the very lowest, Justin Smith has to be 3rd on this list.
