Fisher is quoted as saying he was impressed with Patrick Willis, but at the same time he trashed the rest of our D.
"I think he knew once 52 (Willis) was nowhere in the vicinity that no one was going to catch him," Fisher said. "Willis on the field yesterday was the only one that could catch him. I have to compliment him and his play because I have not seen an effort out of a linebacker like I've seen out of the effort out of him.
"C.J. would have had three more touchdowns yesterday had he not been on the field. It was an outstanding defensive effort by Patrick Willis."
"C.J." was lucky to get what he got against us, who were the NFL's top ranked run D. he broke a couple big runs, but we contained Johnson for most the game. you dont often see a coach stroking off his own player so much at the expense of the other team. like he's some random titans fan or something.
maybe its damage control from his peyton manning jersey thing. either way he looked like an ass.
Nate Clements injury was a big lost to our run defense
Exactly! Nate is awesome in run support and he would have helped P. Willis rip his f**king grill out!
While I agree about the loss of Nate, I've had a problem all season about the inability of our outside linebackers to consistently set the edge. Seems like when opposing RB's have the most success against our run defense it is to the outside and most often to the right side of our defense. Drives me nuts.
Manny actually does pretty well setting the edge on his side IMO, but Parys has fallen off so hard. I dunno WTF happened to that guy but we definitely need an improvement there.
Isn't Manny just as fast as Willis? At least before the knee injury. I remember him running down some Bronco's RB after a 40+ yd run and blowing by a few of our guys in the process. That was impressive. Manny is a long-strider, he glides around.
And I don't think Willis could catch CJ if he had to run him down from behind BTW.
