How good is Ahmad Brooks?

brooks is a beast! Hes a natural in pass rushing and run stuffing. sooner or later, the niners will be the team that produces linebackers for the rest of the NFL to shop for.

LOL. To be fair, I read the article and they had some valid points and I can see why they thought he might finally blossom (as many of us did) but man, did he go South and South fast! Perhaps the personal family issues had a lot to do with it b/c he had talent and ability but just couldn't get it between the ears.

If Brooks does break out this year and Bowman and Aldon actually improve, the niners could very well have the best linebacking group EVER.

They of course would need a nickname. The Four Horsemen? Red Pain? El Quatro Diablo?

Funny, I was thinking the same thing. MD has posted lots if negative stuff on or about AB. I guess it's safe to say MD was dead wrong.
Another Nolan guy. I always had a good feeling about Brooks he just looks like a beast
Fangio expects more sacks from Brooks. So does Brooks

When a player signs a lucrative, long-term contract, there might be a tendency for him to exhale, to relax and to enjoy his newfound financial security. The six-year, $44.5 million deal Ahmad Brooks signed in the offseason has had the opposite effect, Vic Fangio said today. "He probably had his best offseason he's had in pro football," said Fangio. "... I think he's probably in the best shape of his life, at least his NFL life, and we're expecting a big season from him. We'd be disappointed if he doesn't." This year, Brooks hung around Santa Clara all offseason. Not only that, he fell in with the core group of 49ers workout warriors - Justin Smith, Ray McDonald and Parys Haralson chief among them - who would show up every day to train and lift weights. Brooks even augmented that routine by buying a membership at the local 24-Hour Fitness.

Excellent read.

If he can get more sacks he'll get the recognition he deserves. He is getting better every season.

Like most, I can't wait for the season to start.

This for sure. Ready for him to improve on his already strong run from last season .

Great find and relay! So he has only two areas he really needed to improve upon 1) Increased sacks (remember the average SAM had 4.5 and he had 8 last year) and technique and 2) Relentlessness (staying with the play through the whistle) and not leave anything on the field.

Scary! So then he goes out and works out even harder this off season esp. on these two goals AFTER he signs a big contract. Love it!

One thing I am picking up on in all these defensive videos is that the coaches have targeted one or two main goals they need to work on to get better and each player is fully aware of this. Keep it simple...

His stardom is so secret, we still haven't seen it.
