That is a thing of beauty!!! Bowman is becoming more and more impressive the more footage I get to see. He really does play a lot like Willis. This LB core is scary. Brooks, Willis, Bowman, and hopefully an up and coming Aldon Smith. Throw in Ray Mac, and some guy named Justin Smith, and it's really hard to argue that our front 7 is not one of the best in the league. Our secondary isn't looking all that bad either.

go to front 7 anyalsis they talk about both bowman and willis specifically willis coverage skills
Our front seven has quietly emerged as something quite awesome.
I don't know who deserves the credit for putting together this defense. We moved Soap, didn't overpay Franklin, started McDonald, didn't overpay Lawson, started Brooks, waived Spikes, started Bowman, then we drafted Aldon Smith to top it all off. We wanted a defense that was FAST, and could get after the passer at every position.
Baalke must have had some big input into the players that we should be keeping and the players we should be letting go. I think he deserves a lot of credit for our front seven transformation. A front seven that was good last year, but is becoming elite this year.
