Good talk with @WilliamsonNFL today. He loves what he sees from 49ers' NaVorro Bowman. Calls Bowman improbable upgrade from Takeo Spikes.
Spikes year last year was highly overated an a statistical abnormality. Like him as a player but come on media, just cause a guy is fun to talk to on camera doesnt make him a baller. Watch the tape of Spikes and you'll see 2 "gimme" interceptions along with allot of other "gimmes" that fell into his lap. The one area for concern was taking on blockers but Bowman is better than too.
It's amazing how good LB's can look playing next to Willis. Spikes showed it last year with his limited athleticism, and Bowman is taking candy from babies this year with the opportunity and his athleticism.
