VD. What he did on Sunday solidified that in my mind, and probably the teams as well. I love this guy, and he's our best or 2nd best player on either side of the ball.
With how Willis is playing VD might be our best player.
I was going to say that. I don't think Willis is necessarily playing badly, but he's getting taken out of the games by opposing offensive coaches. That shouldn't be happening, our coaches should be scheming to keep Willis free to make plays, and they aren't. Failure of Willis' play is at the feet of the defensive coaches IMO.
Either way, I'd say VD is the leader of this team, and I don't mind that at all. I've liked both of the big moves he's taken this season (stepping to Crabtree, and backing up Smith).
