This bowman blow off ish is getting tired
You have got to be joking. Bowman became Bowman because of Willis? That is ridiculous. Why didn't Takeo Spikes become Bowman-like when he played next to Willis? It's pathetic how people don't give Bowman the credit he deserves because they would rather believe Patrick Willis is behind it all. I love Pat, but please. Bowman is who he is because he is that good. Period. The defense hardly missed a beat whenever Willis was out over the course of the last 2 seasons. Hopefully the same can be said while Bowman is out, but somehow I doubt that. The guy is just too good.
As for having the physical ceiling of Bowman, you might want to look around the league. There are physical freaks on every team, but that means nothing if they can't perform on the field. McClain has proven he cannot perform on the field. Even raider fans hated him because he took terrible angles and missed countless tackles. By the time he was released, every raider fan I know was breathing a sigh of relief.
Because I know a lot of raider fans who like to talk trash about the Niners (for some ridiculous reason, seeing as how their team is the biggest joke in the NFL), I have watched every raider game for the past 10 years or so (mainly to gather ammo in an argument with one of those fools). I've seen McClain stink the joint up and recall laughing (literally) at some of the plays he failed to make. He may be able to get better with proper coaching, but this dude was lost on the field.
