IMO, we have 5 guys on the defense playing at pro bowl level right now... Willis, Bowman, Justin Smith, Ray Mac and Carlos Rogers. If Goldson and Spencer can stay healthy and Aldon Smith can develop on the fly this season. Our defense could get us to 8-8 and the division title.
I'm not sure I'd say all those guys are playing like pro bowlers just yet. I just can't get over how badly our secondary got torched by Dallas.
But Bowman is playing very well. Guys like Bowman and Ray Mac are really helping this defense. Because they are playing so well it prevents teams from honing in on Willis and J. Smith. Everybody must be accounted for. We have one of the top 5 front 7's in the NFL thanks to these guys stepping up.
