Patrick Willis: "I'm tired of losing."

It's b/c nobody has seem him make any big plays on a big stage.

What! You think Willis is the worst linebacker ever? Go be a Raiders fan....



I felt I should post for some zoner out there that was thinking it....

lol didn't stop him from still being the Best Linebacker in the league

He wasn't one of the top ten linebackers in 2010. In fact, he was probably only the fourth or fifth best ILB in the NFL last year. He was 9th in the NFL for tackles amongst backers.

wtf does # of tackles have to do with being the best MLB????

So, you are saying the best QB in the league is going to be 9th in passing, the best sack artist 9th in sacks, the best running back 9th in yards. The evaluation was based on the comment that Willis was the best backer in football. The numbers show a marked drop in productivity and playmaking from previous years.

And, this was only an evaluation of the middle backers. Was Willis better than DeMarcus Ware or Clay Matthews?

Let's be real, Willis is a terrific player and may have been the best backer in previous years. However, 2010 was a down year, period. There is no argument.

There is an argument.

It depends on how you analyze your statistics and what weight you put on various performance factors.

Saying total tackles or total yards makes one player better than another is highly over simplified.

Patrick Willis still had a great impact on the fiield. The situation is a bit similar to Asomugha's deflated stats IMO

also... Willis, most of the time had to get past at least two guys to make the tackle on every play.
