I think Willis' post game comments where telling. He literally said, he felt as if he was out there by himself make plays the last few years. You can tell he ment it, because he started to say it, then though, wow, this is probably not a good thing to say. But he ended up saying it anyway. I kind of get the feeling he's taking this year off.
I think it's funny how most on hear talked about him being the best MLB in the league, and now he's not even the best on our team. Fans are so fickle.
i don't know about him taking the year off, but i could certainly understand him feeling like he was the only one playing in the past, and, seeing the team improve around him, not taking it upon himself to make every play now
Bowman is making the "wow" plays right now but Willis is making plays too, getting pressure, etc. The whole front seven has elevated themselves to another level this season that Willis doesn't stand out like he did before. One of these days Willis is going to make one of those plays that only he could make and all this hand-wringing is going to seem silly.
