Add Manny Lawson to the list of players that could tackle him 1 on 1, he's a long armed fast linebacker who is a GREAT tackler. If AP tries to get the corner he will be met by the long arms of the Law, Manny Lawson! The only thing I'm a bit worried about is Haralson on the other side, great pass rusher, good tackler, but he's not the fastest thing in the world so if they run a few stretch plays to his side we better hope Willis closes in a hurry or Goldson steps up and makes a play.
I don't understand how AP could say that him meeting Willis in the hole last year was a draw. Ignoring the fact that he lost yards on the play, he's the one that gets stood up and dropped. Perhaps because he fell laterally, he felt it was a draw. But...it still doesn't make sense to me.

Exactly! And Peterson is known as a upright runner who has an incredible amount of speed and quickness. Patrick Willis is known, and we've all witnessed, as one of the hardest hitters, if not, the hardest hitter in the league. This combined with his speed and punishing tackling technique it wouldn't even be a contest. In the great words of Ochocinco...Child Please!
