Navarro Bowman

Its pretty exciting that a rookie LB with some physical tools has the best linebacker in the league to teach him. This kid has a huge opportunity to be at least above average at his position if he absorbs any pointers willis gives him. Hes not going to be lights out right away but he can turn out to be a solid lb.

I say work him in now, when there's the opportunity.

As if we needed another reason to hope that Pat Willis stays healthy.

you aint trippin, this aint the first time its happened either
funny. now its changed. lol
so quick to find mistakes, but one can never find a compliment.
i think the fact of us using this site is a compliment in itself, right?
In preseason Bowman looked like a young Willis playing in beast mode. Now he just looks like Willis Drummin from Diffrent Strokes...
Ya know, when I watch him in game sits he seems hesitant; almost like he's thinking too much? Then on ST's he's always the first to decelerate and adjust. Rarely among the 1st 6-7 guys to the ball? Maybe we should consider "simplifying" the calls when he's in? Really good athlete - has all the measurables. But, we can say that about a lot of high round picks lately, can't we?

Spikes on the other hand is predictable, experience and smart. Rarely takes a false step unlike Bowman. Slower, for sure. But I like smart, experienced, predictable.

Matt Barrows today on his blog posted that at then end of practice when they do sprints and such, Bowman was challenging Willis in the race and he was neck and neck with Willis all the way across the finish line. They both left everyone else on the team in the dust he reported.

http://blogs.sacbee.com/49ers/archives/2010/06/the-11-85-conne.html),

"The 49ers don't want me reporting on the conditioning session - running from sideline to sideline several times -- that ends every practice. But they might tolerate this observation: Rookie Navorro Bowman challenging Patrick Willis to be the first inside linebacker across the finish line. In fact, the two pushed each other so hard that they were the first two players across when the session ended. Usually receivers and defensive backs are the first across the line."

Anyway, Bowman must be pretty fast to keep toe to toe with Willis.

Did not realize Willis was that fast, know it hits like a small truck, though
