I normally don't place too much stock into the Tackles statistic. A player can rack up 10 tackles in a game, but what's the point if the runningback picked up 6 o7 7 yards each time on a first down?
But when the defense is playing at a high-level and the rush defense is #1 in the NFL (I think Mora said we're #1 right?), I think it's pertinent.
It makes sense. I imagine teams are game-planning against Willis, allowing Bowman to get more tackles. I figured Bowman could've used another year ot develop under Takeo, but it starting to seem like he's come into his own already.
